What is any House without a "Banner" of Glory

Phil 4:4-7
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

And the peace of God , which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
NIV

In terms of a meaningful song some will stress, "No, you need to LISTEN to the words", yet if words have NO authority that's (founded) based upon who the author truly is, who can truly hear the type of Praise the Lord also "Inhabits". sw

If the bowing of the head could give a man a sense of somehow being closer to God, how would that type of thought square with the higher thoughts that lend to the greatest thoughtfulness of all, "Christ In You. sw





Exactly how "Near" does anything also have to find itself in terms of presentation before same is also considered to be "Undeniable"?

If it were possible, would you agree there seems to be a predominate "False" sense of peace that's being offered to the capricious winds of humanity?

And how many are re-filling there spiritual cups to the point of also being considered "Drunk"? And as such to also suggest "Who's to say at what point the spiritual "Blood Alcohol" level is, Right?

Maybe the word in question should be RIPE? And whose to suggest who's dead and who's just barely considered to be "Ripe"?

How co-operative is ANY song written if God is Not also IN IT? How complimentary is any novel written if Christ is NOT the author? And the greatest of considerations, If God is NOT the ONE who makes all things Grow (increase) or cease to exist?

Who's to say what should be considered as if Noble or Ignoble, Right?

2 Tim 2:20-21
In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble . If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
NIV

Is YOUR God looking for a specific type of Struggle in  this world in order to show his person Strong? Show His person, yet show himself to "Whom"?

And who are the "Seers" of today who have NOT "Heard"? Having heard what they have need of hearing in order that they might 'See'?

2 Chron 16:7-9
At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him: "Because you relied on the king of Aram and not on the LORD your God, the army of the king of Aram has escaped from your hand. 8 Were not the Cushites and Libyans a mighty army with great numbers of chariots and horsemen?

Yet when you relied on the LORD, he delivered them into your hand. For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war." NIV

And who would hope to somehow do away with the 'Image" of committment for the sake of how that same "Image" might somehow make them, "Feel" if they didn't?

Col 3:2-4
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. NIV

And exactly where is "Glory Land"?

Some might suggest, 'Well If I can't see IT how then can I trust in IT"?

Could that actually turn OUT to BE the REAL....Issue?

WOW! Talk about a SAFE place to hide something (In God)?

And what if only a few truthfully "Believed" in the "Right God"?

The One God who's not only Their G.O.D but as if a true "Believer" to have believed the words of those whom Christ entrusted with HIS words?

Just think if that additional layer of comfort were applicable today how much safer might that chosen hiding place PROVE to be?

Especially since the thought was first introduced in that "NO MAN" has ever seen God, Right?

Have you ever stopped to consider if there's a NEED to hide ANYTHING, exactly whom would same be considered Kept or hidden from? Even worse, 'Why"?

Is there a true reasoning involved where some (Christians) think they have to talk of Christ in encrypted terms among supposed "Unbelievers"? Just saying.....

As if a very small attempt at humor there's been a one liner floating around for quite some time that goes something like this, "I'll make him a Deal he can't refuse"! The same type of circle this one also runs in, "I know a guy who knows a guy that knows this guy'!

The type of circle where nearly everyone is hard pressed in order to come to KNOW exactly WHO "This Guy" truly is?

Wouldn't it be a FAIR question to ask, "Even if the bible were to be re-written in a more contemporary version where supposedly EVERYONE would understand, would the TRUTH that has EVERYTHING to DO with the ONE TRUE GOD still remain cloaked (hidden) from some?

How True is any verbalized IMAGE in the "Big Picture'? To then SEE added the type of "Narrative" , a though the authors signature seen at the bottom corner of that picture, "The devils in the details"?

In terms of something that also spreads because same has been openly conveyed, what then would become of the Gospel of Christ if because of FEAR it were only a whisper in the ear of mankind?

The type of suggestion which also flies in the FACE of , "Go shout it from the roof TOP?

And why does the type of Fear that also has to do with "Punishment" seem to have such a firm grip in the minds of so many today?

And what is IT that will ultimately and Intimately define the "Contemporary" meaning of ANYTHING within the bigger picture of all that Eternity truly IS being seen as if Today IS the DAY of YOUR salvation?

And exactly WHO is IT that's also being kept as though somehow mysteriously responsible for everything that does continue "In this world"?

Jude 21
Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life .
NIV

John 17:3-5
Now this is eternal life : that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 

I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. 
NIV

Does any of the Above sound "Just Like" someone you barely "Know"? Just saying...

Considering the "Thorn"

There's probably been countless writings with the intent of somehow providing a better "Understanding" of everything that's already been said in this world. Much of that to include the REAL meaning of many scriptures. What if it were also understood there's ONLY One who can righteously interpret the "Net results" of all that's been said in this world? Who then gets to "Decide" and "WHY" anyone has spoken wisely. sw

Is there a True reason 'Why" ANY type of messenger should be taken more seriously than another?One whose more Highly esteemed than is the cause of the "Recipient" to whom the message was sent? Truly how is it possible the Power of God could somehow be more thoroughly explained if His chosen messenger is NOT well received. sw

It all began with a Lie. Is that a true assessment? Assessment of what, the Fall of man or the Intent of God in terms of the "Net" results of ALL the above. sw

When a child questions the "Parent" who's to say what as if a given life that does "Concern" the "Divinely" assigned parent that has also assumed they've laid down the gauntlet of the Law of the Land"? The same Law the assumed "Child" has somehow violated as if the instructions given of the Lord? Or is the more pointed discovery that needs to be made, 'Who's to Say" what happens in any God given moment. sw

What is "IT" that also "Mysteriously" overcomes 'Anyone' whose somehow arrived in the awareness they've  since been handed their God given "Right" to say and do as it somehow "Pleases" the individual? The same individual whose now been brought in for "Questioning"? And how many faces does the rebellious nature also hold in its "Possession" sw

What does any man preach as if his own doctrine? Does a man preach only in word and NOT in "Deed"? And what proves whose property belongs to whom if not the child who has been trained up in the way of the Lord? To then ask what type of fruit is it that a man who is of God also enjoys. sw

Is there ever time or a season when a man forgets ALL that He is said to "Be" and as such because of "Who" has spoken those same words. sw

Is there TRUE reason why it might seem as though YOUR life might seem easier whenever it's believed God is always addressing someone other than "You". sw

If a man refuses to realize the totality of everything God has handed over to the governance of a mans soul, how is it possible that same soul could ever realize the need of being saved? And as such without having "Realized" the need for the Mercy that ushers in the Glory of God that can only manifest "Because" of the needed Grace only He as Your God can provide. sw

Why would anyone be surprised at anything if this person TRULY already knew in advance. sw

Did Noah know enough in advance? Enough advance notice to also "Know" exactly when to enter the Ark someone had also built for Him and those He'd taken the time to love. sw

Rev 3:3
Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up , I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

NIV

1 Thess 5:4-5
But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief . 

NIV

Mark 13:22-23
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the electif that were possible. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.

NIV

If the battle of a believer is NOT against flesh and blood how is it the one who deceives is then considered to have been put to death? Put to death without eyes that can see who has need of being put to death. sw

Deut 13:1-5
If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a miraculous sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder of which he has spoken takes place, and he says, "Let us follow other gods" (gods you have not known) "and let us worship them," you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer.

The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul.

It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.

That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he preached rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery; he has tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you. NIV

And who's to say whether or Not all the above also goes hand in hand. Sw

Rom 3:3-4
What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness? Not at all! Let God be true , and every man a liar. As it is written:

"So that you may be proved right when you speak
and prevail when you judge."

NIV


2 Cor 12:7
To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. NIV

If something being said that was also considered NOT to BE, "Becoming of a Son of a God" what would it sound "Like"? Better still who gets to decide and for what 'Reason"?

It's easy to suggest 'There's a reason for Everything", yet whose "reasoning is anyone also referring to as if Highly Esteemed? The type of reason which is then floated on the otherwise invisible "Air Waves" of the opinions of this world as if "True Potential"?

When someone uses the word 'Because" how much impact does this word then have on the "Net Results" of everything that is is being "Committed"? Committed to what though?

Truthful consideration?

And who is it that is also considered to BE in "Possession" of the type of mind that can also "Weigh" anything that's been presented as though TRUE?

Exactly why has the thoughts of somehow being possessed by ANYTHING in this world being presented in the fashion where same is then realized as though "Demonized"?

Is there truly a meaningful difference between the affects of "Politics" in the "Moment" and the Eternal decisiveness of the Gospel that is of God? Once it has been decided who "Then" gets to decide in the moments that 'Counts"?

Is the depth of meaning to be found in a particular word or series of words strategically placed together? Or does the real (true) meaning that has to DO with ANYTHING find its duly appointed listening audience 'Because" of "Who" said what was said to have been said?

Is there True potential in every kind of "Second Hand" information? Second hand information as if also talking about the proprietary reality associated with a persons "Humanity"?

In terms of "The Reason Why", why is there also only ONE GOOD REASON whenever someone suggest they have need of hearing......GIVE ME ONE GOOD REASON WHY as if in response to what is being stated under the clear terms of "Who do YOU believe" in any situation?

And who is IT that has SAID what has need of being UNDERSTOOD about the "Father" of ALL Lies and the final destination preassigned as if describing the Net Results of SAME?

The SAME to include those WHO this same father has also sired?

Just saying, HERE...deeply consider the true depth of where a lie can and "Will" lead to, especially once that Lie has reached "Maturity"!

Is there truly a difference between a lie and a LIAR who's been truthfully considered to have reached full 'Maturity"?

Much can be said about the importance of "Spiritual Maturation", yet how much less be remembered of those who sired, conceived and nurtured the value in having lied to Begin as if WITH? 

All the above as if it does pertain to a True "Eternal" Purpose while in this world?

The question is have you Truly received a Great Revelation? If yes, why then frown upon the possibility of a thorn in your "Flesh"?

And as such while Truthfully considering 'Why"? Whose example is it the that can also truthfully be followed?

A liar leaves a trail, yet so does a Good example, but who decides to follow any type of trail? Especially when the collateral damage along the way has been "Righteously Reconsidered"?

Israel....A Person, Place or Perception?

Within a righteous adoption, who ultimately defines "Same" as a sweet success. sw

Why would any type of question find it's been labeled the "Wrong Question". sw

Is there a true reason "Why" such small words seem to carry such small weight and often find they require the most assistance. sw

If a man ONLY attempts to do "Anything" only "After" He has been told he can, how does that speak on behalf of the One who told him he could. sw

1 Cor 6:17
But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit  NIV


John 4:23-24
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."NIV

I see many bumper stickers today attempting to advertise as if there's only One certain type of consideration that speaks of "Salt & Life" (as if on behalf of God), yet what does the dual perspective of God also say about salt?

Matt 5:13
"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
NIV

Why are the saints of today NOT willing to face the "Truth"? The Only type of Truth that is willing to sit down and reason with the Truthful type of question(s) that have come from a pure heart. sw

Who is willing to consider the type of question, "Was Jesus as a son "Pruned"? The type of pruning that also agree with the TYPE of results God is looking for?

John 15:1-2
"I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.

NIV

If "Certain" things truly are 'Certain" and as such because of who spoke, truly what is it that's being denied in any given moment. sw

Doesn't a soul first have to enter the Kingdom of Heaven before it can truthfully consider having been thrown 'Out'. sw

In terms of what is true and if it were possible to somehow filter the imperfect consideration(s) of humanity from any "Biography" how many would result in "Best Sellers"? As such without having to sanitize or desensitize certain considerations. sw

In terms of varied interpretations, degree's or measured portions of Truth, how steadfast are the words of God under the clear terms that express why everything He says His words will accomplish? Who also deploys the type of questions Only the "Mind Of Christ" can Truthfully answer. sw

In terms The One who Knows ALL, the same One who Sees ALL and that same One having made ALL, what is there that can truthfully be denied? As if presenting the righteous summation as to how ALL have passed through ONE and the same world having "Entered and Exited' the same way. sw

The world suggest those who have the Gold make the rules, yet how does that equate to the Loss of ones soul. sw

Is there a reason why the author of ANY type of  Song would find it a Need today to include words such as "God's Not dead"? As if in responding to some ugly rumor to the "Contrary" their listening audience might have otherwise "Believed"?

Now install kingdom principles as if a "Christian Song" and ask, truly "Who's words are the listening audience paying attention to?

How is it the souls of men can find it easy to suggest there are times when "Words have no meaning", to then try and honestly address the universal struggle which does concern those who must decide WHO and WHAT to believe on ANY ....God given day?

Rom 14:10-12
For we will all stand before God's judgment seat. It is written:

"'As surely as I live,' says the Lord,
'every knee will bow before me;
every tongue will confess to God.'"

So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
NIV

Why in this world does appearance seem to matter? And to some more than it does to others?

If the type of logic that is also true did have its way, why doesn't that same logic reveal the last days will prove to be when only ONE remains "Standing"? And why do some have need of discounting the ONLY perspective capable of leading a soul into light and everlasting "Sight of God". sw

How many different ways are there to not only depict but honor a "Mature" son in a given household?


Now try and tax that question with the mature Son who's "Seen in the House of God"?

 And if a mature son is found to without "Honor"in ANY household, what does that suggest about those who've chosen to remain "Immature"?

And who was Joseph or King David while either were seen as if in the misdirected tossing throws of their "Immaturity"?

I suppose the full scope of "Choice" and perspective would have to be more clearly defined before Honor could even possibly be assimilated?

What if ALL men TRULY did understand 'Why" they are "Imperfect"? What other example that's also "True" remains in order so that it CAN be 'Followed"?

I used to suggest to self I personally would be satisfied being the last One who the doorknob that opens into heaven also hit in the hind side when it gets closed. Since that period of Ignorance has since passed, that picture has grown to challenging proportions...

In terms of a pattern, whether defining Behavior Patterns, Family patterns , The perfect Business Model or a Runway Model, who gets to define what is 'Normal" in the sight of God?

If Christ being formed within a man were the ONLY true concern (Objective) of God, what might that type of thought life (consideration) find as if the result of an "Honest'  survey?

Exactly "What" would mankind then have to discover under the 'Divine" terms of what to do with the "Net" results?

The type of results which through the course of time will either prove to have had little to zero to do with the Final outcome or EVERYTHING that WILL have proved to be a hindrance?

And if a man is also primarily concerned with the Interest of the Lord, who in and of this world would also find it a need to somehow put that "Type" of a "Claim" to the test?

Not only "Who" but "Why" would any type of person find it a "Need" to somehow put to the test such a "Claim"?

Especially if that Type of person wasn't even remotely "Interested" or one who does NOT have a perceived "Invested" interest in the outcome of such a claim (BEING) made?

What type of mysteries seem to unfold when EVERYONE in the room shares in the SAME interest in having COME together? Yet on the opposite hand what comes into the "Light" should someone who has NOT shared in the interest of the many who've shown up?

Who sets the overshadowing tone of the spirit in the room, the One or the many?

Do inquiring minds test and probe in order to somehow "Prove" or "Disprove" something to the contrary? In terms of being "Shown" ANYTHING that is also of value, what purpose or example could this type of mindset hope to 'Further'?

And why does mankind seem so find his corporate personage so dependent upon the word "Unconditional" while truthfully considering "Upon" whose terms an agreement has been reached?

In terms of "Purity" and TRUE repentance, is One adulterous affair seen any different than the repeat offender? If so "Why"?

If Once a liar always a liar is forever binding, who then has a any real "Hope" of being considered anything "MORE or LESS" in the sight of God?

Does the word "Unconditional" also describe a type of doorway or portal that has "No door"?

A type of door that is forever left "Open"?

A door open wide enough in order to accommodate anything and everything the souls of men have assessed have need of also passing through?

A type of door that will NEVER close?

Does the type of man who while in this world chooses to ignore the godly definition of a righteous "Man" also ignore the type of righteous provision intended to be found in "Knowing The Will Of God'?

If the will of God were to be clearly understood within those who claim to be In Christ, what type of True Hope could there be if NOT for the pure sake of the "Mind Of Christ"?

And how does Christ define ANY type of spirit who is NOT for HIM? And how many is a "Legion"?

Is there such a thing as divine reasoning? If yes should this type of reasoning also be understood to be somehow made available within the "Mind Of Christ"?

If 'Yes" who then could righteously claim their portion or birth right to this type of "Common Sense"?

Especially if Christ Himself is the ONLY one who can baptize the soul into this type of "Righteous Claim" ?

If Christ does NOT wash You Or I, how righteous is ANY mans claim of being "In Him"?

To those whose claim and defend (whatever) in that "Jesus alone Knows what's in My heart" as if in their own defense, what does that say about the type of message YOUR Lord wants others to come to know and as such by way some otherwise mysterious personification?

Isn't that the type of message that's seemingly ONLY "Good for You"?

How far reaching beyond that notion (Good for You) does that speak of His (Christ) "INTEREST" (Yield)?

Is the essence of this something that can also be weighed (Justified)? Justified as if a GOOD or BAD investment that also been "MADE"? Something that's "Made"?

Possibly,  yet MADE of WHAT and by WHOM?

And "Who" is it that also "Provides the Increase"(Made the Investment in YOU)?

A type of investment made in You, yet in what shape or form if NOT that of "Words" that have also somehow "Performed"?

Have you ever inquired of the Lord, did Jesus have to "Learn" the will of God when He appeared a a man?

Having learned as He grew into the full stature (nature) of "The Son of God? Or did He come forth from the womb of Mary already Endowed with THE required divine wisdom which enabled Him to perform as He did?

If so how can it be said He is able to touch (relate) our infirmities?

What ff the taming of ones soul that's also attached to a tongue is the task at hand? To then suggest and believe Jesus had "No Soul" (only spirit)?

Surely an existence in this world must be the consideration thing that truly matters? The type of which where ONLY "God can Help us"!

And if the endowment of wisdom IS a specific stature or measurement that somehow somehow defines the "Satisfaction of God" how does God then weigh the performance of His own wisdom ONLY He can provide?

As if a type of satisfaction (sanctification) that also defines (exemplifies) being made "One"?

Who else but the Father could possibly have somehow "Justified" their own son? As if the word Justified were righteously being interpreted "Just-as-if I"?

And if no man has EVER seen God who is also spirit, what else CAN mankind rely on (testimony) in terms a type of guilt that somehow otherwise mysteriously "Killed the Son of God"?

And how does a man somehow "Justify" himself or his own history if that same man also rejects his own lineage?

And what are the book ends of "Self Righteousness"? As if where when and how God alone chooses to inform mankind of his individual  guilt? And how does that suit the same type of man who then tries to Navigate the history of his entire life-TIME differently?

And that because of how wise he's (man) since become on his own? Only to find the unfolding of type of history that repeats?

One and the same venue where is has been said, There's NOTHING  New under the sun? Yet who will find the wisdom in such words?

Rom 8:27
And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
NIV

Sound leadership also does what "First"? Proves what is before hand merely being claimed is Possible?

Does the sound of true leadership place the expectation of the impossible upon those who don't have a clue as to 'WHY"? Or because true leadership Knows the truth that has only to do with the type of subject that will come forth from his particular methods of teaching?

And if saving souls is the central objective of those whose souls are already saved, why is their also a risk of your own soul being lost while exerting those same efforts?

How can a man Trust and Obey if that same man denies knowing what to do from one moment to the next? As if being lead around like a nonspiritual tethered "Mule"?

Many today are preaching it does NOT matter what man does as if GOD is in control of EVERYTHING that takes up its place in this world, yet these same men also forget the TYPE of earthly examples GOD uses as well how God qualifies and considers what He uses and How....

These same men who not only suggest God is a gentleman at ALL times, but also those same ones who hope to DEFINE the behavior of type of gentleman they're willing to believe in at ALL times!

Ps 32:9-10
Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding 
but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.

Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD's unfailing love
surrounds the man who trusts in him. NIV

Does this type of man suggests He's following ONLY what God has made Obvious? Or does a certain type of man resist being made wise as to what MAKES Certain things more "Obvious or NOT?

Those same affect's as though something ONLY God understands?

Obviously as well proven historically, how few spiritual sons who are also able to find the "Fullest" measure (sense) of a sense of purpose or accomplishment as compared to those with whom they try and compare to as their Father?

And those who do somehow seem to manage to surpass their fathers expectations, they also seem to have done so ONLY after the passing of their father?

Matt 23:9
And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
KJV

As soon as I "See"!

Rom 12:2
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will. NIV

Is there truly more than ONE reason why ANY glass is being SEEN as if half full and another seen differently in the sight of God?

Is any conversation truly only about the concentration of what is considered painful or more probable ALL the TRUE reasons why?

And why would ANY type of person also try and hide those meaningful "Details" from ANYONE? As if those type of defining type of details that "Will" in fact prove to have lead up to a final summation?

Is it ONLY a matter of who can be trusted with those said 'Details"? Or is it less clear  'Why" so many CAN NOT be trusted with those SAME details?

Is there a more accurate reason as to WHY said "One" is hard pressed in this world to find some "One" who can be "Trusted" with the details? As if the many others are some how going through something that has to do with a "Different" type of Intent and Purpose?

Have you ever thought of what praise from God might sound like while in this world? A specific praise in terms of also being "Blessed" as most try and paint a positive picture?

In terms of having TWO things side by side in the viewing perspective of One, what type of details often go "Unnoticed"? And what does real beauty look like without knowing through whose eyes beauty is being "Defined"?

How many are discounting those seemingly smaller details under the full terms of words such as "All"?

The type of perspective that "Tries" to observe only those stand out features which more often define the clearest image seen from a "Distance"?

Have you ever seen the image of a person from a distance whose gender appears to be "Obvious" and as such based on the long blond hair also associated with a specific type of walk? Only to closer approach this image to discover it's a "Man"?

In terms of ANYTHING as seen "In the sight of God" is there truly such a thing as a valid "Comparison"? The same type of comparison seen NOT only "In Heaven" but ONE (image) that's also being "Observed" in this world?

The type of image that's observed, yet observed by "Whom" and "Why"? Is there such a thing as a "Before and After" image? If so, what type of details could speak to there being a noticeable difference?

And to what does any type of man accredit ANY type of Change?

And if only to be changed in a different time as if for the SAME reason(s) what good can be said of One that's also "In This world" at the same time?

What type of mindset would WANT to somehow alter ANY type of preordained configuration? Don't most worldly oriented debates usually boil down to not only "Who" it is that also making the determination, but also "Why" a determination needs to be "Made"?

A meaningful difference, yet as it concerns a certain "Type" of detail(s) who do those same details also serve?

How valuable are the type of thoughts which lend their strength to the mindset of an "Individual" and how significant are those which fail to recognize the "Whole" that has been formed of "Many"?

This same type of "Individual" who also insist the "Joy of the Lord is their Strength"?

 As if One and the same mindset that has manifest because of those who do "Know" Gods Living "Will"?

1 John 4:17
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 17 In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.
NIV


The same "Will of God" which countless numbers suggest they've not only "Believed" (Trusted) In God but have those who've also insist upon the random invisibility of a type of "Will" that derives it's power from the Lord?

The same type of "Will" that can't be seen having been "Deemed" invisible because it's the type of 'Will" that's ONLY seen as if "In Heaven"?

The same type of WILL that at One moment is clear as the meaning of  loud bell tolling in the distance in the next that same tone will somehow mysteriously become a complete, "Mystery" that's been painted by way of a "Altered" narrative?

Phil 2:21-24
For everyone looks out for his own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.

But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel. 

I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me. And I am confident in the Lord that I myself will come soon.
NIV

Does Life that is also Eternal have only to do with those who "Claim to believe"? Or does Life eternal ITSELF speak for those who have understood the type of life that will continue "Because of "Who they've believed? "

What I DON'T think many Christians struggle with is 'What they believe to BE....TRUE!

What I DO believe most SELF proclaimed Christians struggle with is , They don't KNOW why OR "Who" is NOT declaring what is True beyond doubt at any given moment!

And what does "Confirmation" appear as in "This World'?

How many can only see a man washing the feet of another man as something of "Great" value? And how many see the value of a type of "Water' that equates to being washed by the spirit of Gods words? Only later in the throws of turmoil truthfully considering where the more meaningful dust has "Accumulated". sw

Man may NOT be able to create as does God, yet within his own imagination surely he can "Invent" countless ways to not only promote what is evil, but also define what is evil by way of attempting to somehow suppress what is "True" by way of all that he approves. sw

More often than not men take only what they 'Want". sw

John 13:8
Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."

NIV

John 15:1-4
"I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.

He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.

You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you.

No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 
NIV

Jude 20-25
But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. 21 Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear-hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
NIV

Is it not the man who gets to decide who his God is and who has represented that Same God!

He "Passed" by them...

Does a man share what he believes to be true only to gather an "offering"? Does he share only to gather to himself the sound of the voice of "Many" for validation? As if Lots being cast, does he find hope in the strength of the type of thoughts where he as if alone sees why his sanctuary is brimming over? Who does the spiders web also "Serve". sw

If the creative words of God were intended to create a specific image, whose likeness would those words also represent. sw

How many skim over the Real treasures of life in order to reach for the otherwise "Good Portions" of life they can see. sw

Gen 1:26-27
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them. NIV


If a white man see's a baby of color come from his wife's womb, does he cast aside the deepest concern for the sake of everything else he knows to be true. sw

Why does any man live as though he were not alive. sw

Luke 4:24-27
"I tell you the truth," he continued, "no prophet is accepted in his hometown. 

I assure you that there were many widows in Israel in Elijah's time, when the sky was shut for three and a half years and there was a severe famine throughout the land. 

Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow in Zarephath in the region of Sidon. 

And there were many in Israel with leprosy in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed — only Naaman the Syrian."
NIV

1 Cor 15:16-19
For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile ; you are still in your sins.

Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.
NIV


The word "Touch" or "Touched" like any other word that gets "Used", how does any "Type" of word find they're usage "Suggesting" many different things?

How many today who are also of the "Christ Like" persuasion have heard words such as these,

"If Jesus were here He could just reach out and "Touch Me"? 

Heb 4:12
For the word of God is living and active
NIV

Think about the FULL context of the following two phrases and how they COULD somehow find their otherwise true potential somehow opposed? 

Dependent upon ones Type of vocabulary, one phrase is a product of an invisible evolutionary process a written language sojourns and the other whose origins are derived from an otherwise invisible "God'?

"We'll just have to "Agree" to "Disagree"?

Mark 14:56
Many testified falsely against him, but their statements did not agree . 
NIV

Truly what is ANY mans "Doctrine"?

Philem 6
I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. NIV

In terms of death, what happens when something or someone is assumed to not only BE "Dead" but gone as well?

1 Peter 1:3-9
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 

In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade — kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 

These have come so that your faith — of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire — may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls
NIV

As it applies to the conceptual phrase "It is what it is" how does a persons reasoning somehow make room for ALL that is True in this world? Especially if THE TRUTH is ONLY merely uttered words and NOT the beauty of a REAL "Person"?

Long suffering,who today is truthfully weighing it's patience? And whose bags of weights are being used to somehow balance the set of set of scales that have not been accurately "Calibrated"?

Acts 5:9
Peter said to her, "How could you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also."
NIV

Say "What"?

Modern day Interpretation, what would the interpretation from the mouth of Christ sound like today on the back side of the following narrative? What type of context does this type of narrative require?

Will the needed context be a type of "Man" or a set of circumstances which surround a man?

Mark 12:24-27
Jesus replied, "Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God ? 

When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. 

Now about the dead rising — have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? 

He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!"
NIV


Have you ever pondered why many seem to have need of strongly suggesting "Context" defines what is True whenever discussing God oriented considerations in this world?

That same Type of context that people are willing to admit ONLY the One True God understands?

And that to include the SAME type who are "Claiming" to have "Witnessed" the same God and Christ to others today?

What about a stand alone truth that requires being discovered as if something "New"? New to also suggest something yet to be "Realized"(considered as though real)? And who is capable having merely suggested they "Believe"?

In terms of "Knowing" the person of God today or while claiming that "Ignorance" remains a sufficient safe guard or "Shield"? A shiled against the type of questions such as, "Was there a Herald of advance notice before and/or during the preparation time (hundreds of years) of Noah prior to the "Flood"?

The following is what many claim they know today while also claiming to KNOW Christ as Lord...

2 Tim 2:19
Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness". NIV

Instead of asking why God destroyed the world, why not ask instead "Exactly" why did God NOT destroy Noah and His family?

And what is in the TYPE of heart of any deliberate sinner? The type that suggest everything continues as it has since the beginning until the coming of the Lord?

And what does the  type of man "Look like" who chooses to ignore the NEED for the Grace of God?

His (Gods) Grace having been realized as the needed power?

Power, yet "Power" enough to also accomplish what? Why is it easy to assume the lack of Gods power within ANY type of God provided scenario is also Gods doing?

How could that type of thought somehow "Square" with the type of thoughts that allow nearly ANYTHING men choose to do these days in the sight of God to be considered permissible and accepted?

As if to suggest at His (Christ) second coming many will simply be changed from a frog to a prince?

In terms of the interaction of God with man, His long patience and suffering, was God there with Cain when he was told the following?

This same God and creator as if a "Life Coach"? Life coach not in the second or third person, but in the "First person"?

Gen 4:6-7
Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it ."
NIV

How can ANY man also MASTER sin if God's (grace) power is NOT the active component that tips the scales in favor of that same Grace?

And who can come to know of this same Grace of God having failed to realize the True Need of the "Mercy of God" which paves the "Way" in terms of access to that same Grace?

Understood Mercy, yet Mercy shown BECAUSE of 'What"?

As if to suggest a type of man who claims to have DONE nothing Wrong and that based on what THAT man does suggest he does NOT know about?

The type of man who then claims to have "Instincts" (Insight) enough to suggest when God is or is NOT speaking at any given moment in this world?

Luke 11:50-51
Therefore this generation will be held responsible for the blood of all the prophets that has been shed since the beginning of the world, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, this generation will be held responsible for it all. NIV

Rom 1:18-20
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse . NIV

2 Peter 3:4-7
They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.

By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
NIV

2 Cor 5:17-21
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation ; the old has gone, the new has come!

All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.

We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
NIV


New to also suggest as though NO ONE have ever been exposed to the needed set of circumstances that will and does "Define" what is true?

And what does the "Last Days" truly look "Like" to you and I today?

Luke 17:26-27
"Just as it was in the days of Noah , so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. 
NIV

As if somehow able to Truly compare what we assume we do or can see today to what we've only heard or read about in terms of ALL that is coming soon? 

Not to mention while also trying to find agreement with others?

Others defined as those who choose to struggle with or deny the "Likeness" and/or arrangement of those SAME type of things that took place many years ago? And what is a "Prelude"?

And as such (prelude) that may prove to be thousands of years being drafted on the other side of originally being stated as the "Last Days"?

Exactly who are these men who are without names and faces today?

2 Peter 2:17
These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm.
NIV

Take for example the very SUBJECT that should matter in the random sampling of Gods words above?

Who are these "men" as if by way of the pen in the hand of man the author God mentions?

And why today would God seemingly have need of a different type of voice than His chosen "Scribe"in antiquity? Could the reason be for the SAME reason many fail to hear His voice today?

Surely many saw NO need for a Boat the size Noah was building in His time, yet why did He see what He needed to see during that same time?

Obviously enough was made known as to why Noah was building his Boat, yet does that also explain WHY many came to mock or heckle his FAITHFUL actions?

Is it possible the more common practice of "Selective Hearing" is also why few are rarely finding themselves guilty in terms of who "These men" are? And exactly why does ANYONE also have a given name under the clearer terms of specificity?

How significant could remaining in control of the "Context" also play its role in terms of accuracy of speech and those who get to define in the moment what others "See" or NOT?

Have you also ever pondered exactly how far do people who are also hopeful of honest engagement allow "The True Meaning" (Spirit) of words to somehow mysteriously "Wander" from their 'Origin"?

To then Truthfully consider words that clearly define who and what the "Beloved of God" will ultimately appear as in their day of 'Revealing"?

And what is the revealing of anything that is also presently hard pressed in somehow "Being" defined?

A "Revelation" maybe?

In terms of Context, it was once said of "A People" that Christ came to His own yet his own did not receive Him?

What was it about the consideration of the Christ" sent of God in terms of those whom rejected Him (as Christ) at the time of His physical appearing?

Who today is failing to recognize the spirit of Christ within ANYONE who is also among the living today?

Not under our terms but under His (Christ) terms, have you ever deeply considered who does "His own" include and why that same awareness might only RANDOMLY seem to REMAIN important?

 Not only in order to "know" who's who in this world yet just as important 'WHY"?

In terms of a deal breaker what is it within a true relationship that is ABLE to prove whenever the parties to that said relationship also contain the "Bedrock" that DOES define a TRUE relationship?

The same type that has been "Taken to Heart"? Under the clear terms of who God is, is there also more than One Heart?

How is it possible where ANYONE somehow excludes themselves from the benefits of a TRUE "Relationship"?

To then task that same truthful consideration with "How" do those said "Benefits" then find they've become the lasting evidence that also 'Defines" the very "Fabric" (type) of this relationship?

Have you ever truthfully considered the type of WHY or if it ever did CROSS the Mind of EVE what type of benefit there might prove to be in her somehow (unaware) appearing differently than did ADAM in those same set of eyes?

And how that type of CONTEXT also proved to MATTER should there be an assumed outcome that would also depend upon WHO she appears AS in those set of eyes?

In terms of "Seeing" at what point does that same ability to SEE then interpret as if the evidence of what was "Learned" (taken to heart) from what "Has been heard"?

If their were an objective in this (present) life time how might it PROVE itself? And if there were NO way to gauge same? How would one find ANYTHING of value?

What is Unity and what does the type of Unity ONLY God is capable of defining appear as having been provided the opportunity (venue) to manifest itself?

Some might suggest manifested in their OWN heart heart yet whose heart is YOUR heart?

In terms of every man who has and does acknowledge their own imperfection (aside from some who do so with great joy), what does this type of nearly sought out imperfection also prove in terms of a "NEW CREATION" which God has made?

How easily is to claim to be misunderstood and how true is it to have claimed to be something only later to find that YOU were the ONE who was deceived?

All the while claiming the ONLY important thing that matters to YOU and God is that God Knows Your Heart? And what is the work of a "Child of God"? And to whom does ANY man then look to in order to find?

Is there a divine difference between a Godly type of "Discipline and activities wrought at the hand of "Punishment"?

Is there a true reason why some only hear what they "Want" to?

Those who are waiting to be like Him in the by and by and those who are eager to know and see only in part some of the evidence that in this world we have been made Like Him because He has been Our Father!

Are some waiting all their lives ONLY to BE liked or are many living ONLY because in this world its counted a Joy to esteem to Be Like Him in some fashion SHOW?

As if "Poof" by way of the waving of a magic wand that's yet to arrive they in another day as if their will on display today, will then be MADE to be like Him (God) in the twinkling of an eye?

The same type of ability today many choose to suggest is NOT with or for those who choose "Believe" in His divine power today?

The SAME Type who choose to murder with a crucifix around their neck or lie with a prostitute assuming their outward and open display of wickedness has gone on unnoticed? As if to suggest the display of the TYPE of two who are really One at heart despite what is brazenly being put on display?

many will be made Like Him (God) and as such nearly as simultaneously against their will they expressed nearly all their lives here on earth?

Some might suggest the word Love is being shredded in this world, yet what does the beloved of God also Know as only a portion of their eternal comfort?

Is it an entirely TRUE statement to declare ONLY the strong WILL survive OR is it even more precise to suggest that "Those who are Known by God" will survive two appointed types of death. sw

2 Cor 13:6-10
Now we pray to God that you will not do anything wrong.

Not that people will see that we have stood the test but that you will do what is right even though we may seem to have failed.

For we cannot do anything against the truth , but only for the truth.

We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and our prayer is for your perfection. 10 This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority — the authority the Lord gave me for building you up, not for tearing you down.
NIV


1 John 4:18
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him .

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
NIV

1 John 3:1-3
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!

And that is what we are

The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 

 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him , for we shall see him as he is. 3 Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.
NIV



Luke 2:19
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart .
NIV


1 Peter 3:7
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
NIV


What is that qualifies those who've somehow otherwise "Disqualified" themselves from ANY said "Prize"?

Rev 1:1-3
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which ---> God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he sawthat is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
NIV


Why is ANYTHING considered to BE "Impossible" and what makes ANY type of "Loving God" Inaccessible". sw

What takes its place whenever True Love has been displaced. sw

Why is it easy for man to claim his own when they do good, to then truthfully survey the results of his own type of rejection. sw

There  are times when knowing who "You are" saves you and there are times when knowing why "You are" who you are helps you and others see why some are not able to also 'See" the eternal "Picture" God has already painted. sw

Why does it always seem the value of True art seemingly out lives the artist? Truly what is any mans legacy that has also provided the same type of "Provision".  sw

If evil knows what can take the strongest of men down, why are men increasingly being encouraged to look upon and desire their said "Female" side? And what WILL the type of history God has ordained one day reveal about the secret desires of every heart that WILL one day be revealed for what they TRULY are or NOT. sw

When God declares the essence of a specific concern to be "Because of the Angels" what might that suggest in terms of invisibility and capability. sw

In terms of blame, truly what does it prove beyond what is also True in terms of who's following who. sw

What defines a child if NOT the realization of the otherwise invisible dangers of entanglement of THIS world, yet who has been "Made Wise" enough to share. sw

If Heaven is the full height of ALL standards, what then establishes any "Headship" which is then considered to be beneath all the above. sw

When water fails to teach a man, whose to say water was NOT designed to run "Uphill". sw

1 Cor 11:3-10
Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.

And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head — it is just as though her head were shaved.

If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head.

A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.

For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.

For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head. NIV


Ezek 28:11-19
The word of the LORD came to me: 12 "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says:

"'You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you:
ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl.

Your settings and mountings were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.

You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you.

You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.

You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created
till wickedness was found in you. 

Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence,
and you sinned.

So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.

Your heart became proud on account of your beautyand you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor

So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.

By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries.

So I made a fire come out from youand it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching.

All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more." NIV

To be Born again and that of God, who has found the reward in having believed ALL the above? And as such to then conclude in THIS world who Your father IS and who is NOT your father? And in either instance because of "What"?

Who that is in this world has NOT been seen as though worthy of being at minimum thought more highly of (elevated) than self? And as such without more than a vague understanding hat would cause any man to be considered Righteous in the sight of God?

1 John 3:11-15
This is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.

Do not be like Cain , who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother.

(Didn't Cain also have the same earthly mother and father as did his brothers temporary guardians?)

And why did he murder him?

Because his own actions were evil and his brother's were righteous.

Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.

We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death.

(And what is any type of True failure? As compared to having truthfully considered the equal opportunity of the love of ONE father? One Father who desires to have many sons? The same Father with whom ALL things have been considered to be "Possible"?

And if there has been ONLY one miraculous conception by way of the Holy Spirit, how then does ANY man then try and weigh the thoughts of having been born again and that OF GOD?

Those same sons who've also claimed to have been sired by One and the same Father while in this world? And as the Sons of God without the tangible consideration of a physical WOMB?)

Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him. 

Is there such a thing as Character assassination? Is the physical murder of another the only TYPE of murder something only GOD would better "UNDERSTAND"?

Heb 10:39

But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved .
NIV

Once more, how different is 'Discipline and Punishment"  and to what end does one compare a "Guardian" and a "Brothers Keeper"?

How clear is any language without someone also selfishly altering the Context?

James 4:3
When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives , that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
NIV

Rev 17:15-18

15 Then the angel said to me, "The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages.

The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.

For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God's words are fulfilled.

The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth."
NIV
