What Does 666 Mean
  
666 means NOTHING as far as our modern world is concerned. Revelations is just an anti-Roman diatribe - the 7 heads refer to Rome (7 hills), the 10 horns refer to the 10 Roman provinces, the Antichrist is Nero ( NOT some future world leader). In Roman numerals 666 is written DCLXVI, in other words, each Roman numeral written once. John, not being Roman, was simply unaware that M = 1000. Had he known that, Christians today would be asking the "meaning" of 1666!

Revelations is about the PAST, not the present nor the future.


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn, This is the last time i will explain. I am a creature made of dust and not by my own hands. I deserve no glory neither do i seek any. I did not add all the verse because i was seeking to show the difference between soul and spirit, not because i was seeking to hide something! Jesus said his soul was (sorrowful), his spirit (ready) and his flesh was (weak). If jesus meant his flesh was his soul, he would have called his flesh sorrowful also. By calling his fleah weak, he demonstrated it was not the same as his (soul) sorrowful! Jesus speaks of the trinity of the makeup of man, spirit, soul and flesh (body). The same is declared in 1 Thess. 5:23: Your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn,
There is a huge difference between the flesh,mind (psyche) and the soul (psyche). Jesus said in (mark.14:34) that his (soul) was sorrowful unto death. Then a few verses later jesus states his (spirit) was ready (Mark.14:38). Jesus is demonstrating that his (soul) and his (spirit)were two different parts of his being, experiencing two different reactions. Your incorrect interpretation of the soul keeps you from something edifying. I pray your spirit might eventually receive the deeper things of the spirit. You'll see things in a clearer perspective when you always seek the glorifcation of God and His Word.

MarkV, I want to thank you for your kind words. It is a simple thing to fail to comprehend an attack when it is not against you. Attacks can come in many different forms. They often come in disparaging comments in a subtle manner seeking to appear superior in purpose.
To quote Scripture is not always the right motive if it is for the wrong purpose. Kind manners often is meant to appease the listeners, and the (appearance)of a none self-righteous attitude are seldom found except in the best of manipulators. Mark you listened to Shawn but you heard what you believed already. Listening is but a fleshly sense but hearing beyond the sayings gives you other ears to hear, through God's gracious Spirit. this will be my last statement on this blog

Miche, apology humbly accepted. You may always and often criticize me, but to misquote another reveals a misjustice to that one and a lack of interest on behalf of the opinion of another. When we begin to disregard the opinion of another we soon fail to learn. The Lord told me long ago, "That He could not be manipulated by the persuasion of a fleshly mind" and i believe His word must never be abused (misquoted). So i also dislike being misquoted. I perceived the sincerity of your apology and i am very thankful for it! I pray that the Lord my God will favor you at all times!

Miche 3754, I had a continuation of the statement made to you on the 23rd but apparently it did'nt get through, As i stated the salvation of the (soul) after we are saved through Christ, is through the engrafted Word, a process that last a lifetime and we grow through it(James.1:21).Where the salvation of the (spirit)(John.3:6) is the rebirth experience in Jesus in our spirit. We are made up of body, soul and spirit as stated in God's Word: (2 Thess.5:23) May your whole (spirit)(soul) and (body) be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The spirit (pneuma) is the part of us that gives the ability to perceive the Divine. The soul(psyche) is the area of our emotions and will, and is subject to the lust of the flesh as did Adam.


Questions About Revelations
  
Therefore, we are easily distracted by voices not perceived through the spirit (pneuma) of ourselves, but the soul of our being. Adam knew the difference for he had always conversed with his creator, spirit to SPIRIT. We however, often lack the ability to correctly perceive the voice of the Spirit to our spirit (void of the anointing) and often confuse voices of soulish things with spiritual matters. Those who do not understand the difference between the voice of the Spirit to the spirit(pneuma)and the voice of the soul(psyche) will always fail to comprehend the deeper spiritual directions and discernments of our Lord and His gracious Spirit! I really only wanted to stay on the topic of the rider (Rev.6:2)! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!


Questions About Revelations
  
Miche, What i said about Adam was not even close to what you claim i said (12/22/08). I said nothing about Eve sought to (force or fool) Adam . You have the same propensity of adding words and meanings to other peoples sayings as Shawn does. Are you sure your not both the same person! I simply said Adam listened to Eve by, through his soul (12/ 19/08) not in (force or fooled) but because the soul (emotions) are easily deceived especially when love for our fellow being is envolved. Where you came up with (fooled and forced) is beyond me. You see the salvation of the soul is different than the salvation of the spirit.


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn, it seems that if anyone does not agree with you, they are mocking you. Sorry but the things you teach are far from what I see in God's Word. The elect are of the chosen but many are called. I really do not need your form of edification. You believe as you will. Eat at the trough as you want. I will take my pearls and reside in another place! You assume far to much by classifing yourself as an edifier. Im sorry that you seem more concerned about your appearance before others, than your ability to hear any voice but your own. May you eventually grow in the Lord, and trust in his leadings. God Bless you, and remember none of us are always right in our understandings even if we think its of the Lord's leading!


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn, It seems to me that you are stating that unless you are of the elect you are not of the classifcation of a saint. A saint is a saint the moment he is birthed spiritually in JESUS CHRIST. Just like the physical bith of a baby, that baby is instantly born into the human family. He does not become a human after he matures. So christians at birth in Christ are saints even as babes and then as saints they muture and become the elect. Paul in Gal, and James in his writings were not seeking to create saints, they did not have that power but they sought to teach and correct the saints in their walk in the Lord! And we today as saints benefit from their words!


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn, Adam was not deceived when his guidance was through his (spirit). Then after was he deceived through Eve by listening to, through, his (soul). You claim the Lord spoke to your SOUL not your SPIRIT! Your soul can be deceived! you speak as if your position of being of the elect safeguards you from all deceptions. Your safeguard is JESUS, not your postion or title! Unless you woke up one day without a soul, you, I and all are capable of being deceived!Do not add the word SOUL to God's Word when that word is not there (John.10:4-5). You have a tendency to add meanings and words to something not said or you failed to understand. Believe as you will though that is your right.


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn. the soul and the spirit of man are two different make ups. Animals have souls but not spirits. Even if we were perfect we cannot know our souls, according to God's inspired Word(Job.9:21). Please as i said before do not add meanings to my words that i never said and you never understood! You cannot be deceived Spirit to spirit, but voice, words,ideas, converse. all can deceive the soul! Please, if you must believe as you do, do not claim that through your position as the elect everytime you get a witness it must be the correct answer because only the Lord speaks to you,WHY? apparantly because of your position! We all should just listen then to you who only hears always from the Lord!


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn, I will attempt to explain this to you one more time. I did not, nor did i ever say, as you state, the Lord was not capable of keeping us from being deceived. But assuming you are hearing from the Lord you made the statement that the Lord witnessed to your (soul)not your spirit on 12/7/ 08.The soul can receive many voices, regardless if you are of the elect or not! these voices can be of others, yourself, the devil, or something that one may have read through the interpretation of another. I personally believe that you heard from the latter, claiming it to be from the Lord! If you believe the soul of yourself only hears from the Lord, and not from other voices, you seem to be sadly deceived beyond measure, and you teach others the same !


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn, it is obvious that you believe you have the only interpretation on the meaning of God's Word. Therefore,our continual communication will produce nothing constructive.I pray that you listen with your spirit for the voice of God's Spirit and realize that hearing with your soul can be deceptive.I am glad that you think God resonates throughout your being, but the important thing is to discern with your spirit, and be cautious of things revealed to your soul! I am concerned you will be a person easily to be deceived by others in the future. I pray that the Lord will not allow this and to protect you in all places- God Bless!


Questions About Revelations
  
He that sat on the RED HORSE took peace from the earth not with PESTALINCES but with a weapon, A GREAT SWORD. A Sword is a weapon of WAR, not PESTALINCES! The rider on the WHITE HORSE has a BOW it is meant to point toward the hearts of men, not to KILL as the rider on the RED HORSE but to CONQUER. Therefore, the Holy Spirit is that BOW and He shall shoot forth the ARROW (rider),Zech.9:14, Isa.49:2)who shall go to the hearts of many people and shall seek to conquer the hearts of many for GOD'S Glory!


Questions About Revelations
  
Shawn,not to boast but the Lord knows that i learned the book of James. and much of the book of Gal. by memory many yrs. ago. Your version of what a saint is or is not is just that , your version! In Peter's case denying and betraying were one of the same.
I did'nt say that you should'nt listen to the spirit, please do not assume what i am saying. Shawn you need someone preferable a good teacher to explain to you the difference between the body, mind, soul, spirit, and SPIRIT! I am impressed that you think that you know when something is taken out of context and is not of truth, but without one iota of evidence, to back your belief!
