When was the last time you read Revelations?

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

A side note on the first video....

Interesting that Josephus wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews just after Christ that:

“…there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers.”1 (Emphasis added)

So the 3 Wisemen came from the east to Bethlehem. These were Magi's religious men from the Royal court of the Royal family of Parthia. So for some unknown reason this is not written in modern day history.

So Josephus writes that there are so many Israelite's beyond the Euphrates that they can't be counted. This would be Parthia one of the most powerful nations in history. Historians don't like to talk about Parthia. And I can imagine why....

Was Parthia an Israelite nation at the time of Christ? Or maybe the Royal Family was related to Christ from the Pharaz (Son of Judah) bloodline (Which the Bible gives Jesus's bloodline from Pharaz son of Royal House of Judah) since many Parthian Kings had Pharaz included as part of their names?

Also the first 2 Capitol's of Parthia were Issac and Dara. Dara being the grandson of Judah.

Just some interesting notes.

I guess given a long enough time line, all events in prophecies could eventually play out.
Did one of the Horsemen just show up?


Haven't looked at any of that for a long time


How'bout that whole chapter 9 : 5th shofar blast thing...

That bit about "men will seek death and will not find it - they will long to die but death flees from them"

What kind of bizzare zombie :cuss: is that !?!
