    I don't believe the Bible is literal or history. I am not a Bible Christian. I stayed only a short time with the Jehovah's Witnesses.

    And in the end, who even cares what I, myself think. I am only writing what I learned from years of studying mainstream critical theology after leaving the Watchtower.

    I don't even personally subscribe to much of what I write. It's just academic data. I don't even know if I have an opinion on much of this except that I think there are far better things to do than debate about Bible texts.

    Babylon the Great

    Revelation 17:4 … and she had in her hand a golden cup that was full of disgusting things and the unclean things of her sexual immorality. 5 On her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the prostitutes and of the disgusting things of the earth.”

    What important city in the world is the driver of sexual immorality, homosexuality, transgenderism? What city in the world was first to organize Pride festivals and push it on to other countries?


    Revelation 17:18 And the woman whom you saw means the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.”

    30 Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave. 31 One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man around here to give us children—as is the custom all over the earth. 32 Let’s get our father to drink wine and then sleep with him and preserve our family line through our father.”

    33 That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in and slept with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.

    34 The next day the older daughter said to the younger, “Last night I slept with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight, and you go in and sleep with him so we can preserve our family line through our father.” 35 So they got their father to drink wine that night also, and the younger daughter went in and slept with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.

    36 So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. 37 The older daughter had a son, and she named him Moab; he is the father of the Moabites of today. 38 The younger daughter also had a son, and she named him Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the Ammonites of today.

    Revelation 18:24 Yes, in her was found the blood of prophets and of holy ones and of all those who have been slaughtered on the earth.”

    In the past 200 years Christians have not been killed in mass. But there have been wars and revolutions, and tyrannical regimes that have killed tens of millions of people.

    The worst kind of regimes in this aspect have been different kinds of socialist/communist regimes.

    So we should ask ourselves, is there a sponsor of such murderous socialist/communist regimes? If yes, that sponsor would be the root cause for the death of tens of millions of people.

    And socialist/communist regimes are also against faith in Jesus. And in the final years before God’s Kingdom the persecution of believers in Jesus will ramp up significantly. And it will become more and more evident who is behind it.

    This documentary might help to understand who in our time has been behind much of death by war and other methods.

    How to determine who is the false prophet in Revelation?

    Revelation 19:20 And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false prophet that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beast and those who worship its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulfur.

    Here we saw that the false prophet will perform signs in front of the wild beast.

    This corresponds with the two horned beast because Revelation 13:13 says: “And it performs great signs, even making fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the sight of mankind.”

    So, in view of the time we are in, we can expect in the coming years to see the two horned beast/the false prophet to perform great misleading signs.

    Put on the complete suit of armor from God

    Ephesians 6:10 Finally, go on acquiring power in the Lord and in the mightiness of his strength. 11 Put on the complete suit of armor from God so that you may be able to stand firm against the crafty acts of the Devil; 12 because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. 13 For this reason take up the complete suit of armor from God, so that you may be able to resist in the wicked day and, after you have accomplished everything, to stand firm.
