  1. I'm can't believe I'm contributing to the insanity of the fun and games forum :runforhills:

    BUT, here goes anyway! :yeah:


    This is easy; in alphabetical order post one thing that is in your pantry. This includes any general food/kitchen item no matter where it is at the moment. For example, if you keep apples in a bowl on the counter, you can still say "apples".

    This also includes any other thing besides food if it is in your pantry or other food storage cabinet/shelf/compartment. If you keep your crock pot in your pantry, you can use it. If you keep your crock pot in a cabinet with other dishes you can't use it.

    Clear as mud? Good. Let's begin...


  2. The grammatical problem I see is that the verses plainly say that Messiah will be cut off after the 62 weeks which comes after the 7 weeks. It does not say that Messiah will be cut off in the middle of the 70th week.

    Nowhere in the O.T. is the church referenced. That's why Paul called it a mystery. The Jews did not know nor foresee it.


  3. You haven't fully explained all of verses 26 and 27... There is no way Christ is the fulfillment of every prophecy contained therein.


    Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

    27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.



    After the 7 "weeks" (periods of 7 - we understand these as years now) and 62 weeks, Christ is cut off. Then the people of the prince that shall come - the Romans - destroyed Jerusalem and the temple in A.D. 70. That area has been desolate for nearly 2000 years until 1948 when Israel became a nation again and has started returning, all in fulfillment of prophecy.

    The prince that shall come is of the people that destroyed Jerusalem back in A.D. 70 so this "prince" is going to be Roman or perhaps European. He is the one who will confirm a covenant for 7 years and then stop the sacrifices midway. He will make it desolate for the purpose of spreading abominations and this continues to the end [of the tribulation]. And then something predetermined (the judgments revealed in Revelation) will be poured out.


    God told Daniel that his book was to be "sealed up" until the time of the end. The book was still available to read so obviously it means that it won't be understood until the time of the end. Daniel and Revelation go together and we in these end times can see (or should be able to see) so many of the prophecies being fulfilled in these latter days.


  4. dblev,

    There is no Scripture or even common sense that tells me that Revelation MUST be taken symbolically. I'm sure some people thought that many of the O.T. prophecies were "symbolic" too but they came to pass anyway. I'm happy to take God at His Word and fully believe these things will come to pass.


  5. The two marks in Revelation, the Seal of God (Rev. 7:3) and the Mark of the beast, have the same symbolism as Deut 11:18; they symbolize a persons world view and actions, and by their world view and actions we can tell whether one identifies with the beast, or with the Lamb.




    So without this "world view" no one will be able to buy and sell? I don't think so.

    The language is specific: He causes all to receive a mark in their right hand or forehead. No one can buy or sell without it. Why would you allegorize this?


    Rev. 13:16-And he causeth all, both small and great

  6. orvals, thanks for pointing out those conjunctions. I've often wondered about young children and mentally impaired people who aren't able to make an informed decision and who really wouldn't understand what they will be required to do. Maybe God will have mercy on them. Who knows, they might be the ones who go into the Millennium just like those who were 20 and under were allowed to live to enter Canaan.


  7. I can see how this could be the forerunner of The Mark but let's not forget that technology itself is not the mark. Someone could implant one in their child today and not be giving that child the mark. The mark is given en masse during the time of the anti-Christ and an allegiance will go along with it. Those who refuse will be executed.


  8. I stopped watching after the first one. :frog I started the 2nd one and couldn't finish it and started the 3rd one and couldn't finish it. Compared to the books, they were sooooo stooooooooooooooopid! But that's just me. :Green When I heard they killed off Willie, I completely gave up on them. :roll Sheesh! They make Missie out to be some kind of ERA woman or something.

    Hehe, sorry for the rant. :Bleh
