Apocalypse (Revelation) Biblical explanation.

February 2nd, 2018, 10:21 am

Apocalypse (Revelation, Bible) explanation:
1). Babylon whore = crude OIL. Modern oil idolatry is killing people.
2). Beasts, derived from OIL, killing humans = cars, rockets, aircrafts, tanks, helicopters.
3), The beast with horns = car engine.
4). King of oil beasts = rocket "Apollo" made by USA, landed on Moon.
5). Other beasts = microprocessors, the kings of modern computer idolatry.
6). Mark of the beast = X86. No modern money transaction is possible without microprocessor, particularly X86. The mouse under your hand also contains microprocessor.
7). False prophet = Bill Gates, who is attracting people by VISUAL effects, rather than on reliability, scalability and functionality.

Ok, beyond Apocalypse, let's see if it holds:

1) Burning Bush
2) Noah's Ark
3) The Plagues of Egypt,* and, most importantly,
4) Behemoth** 
5) Leviathan***

The Plagues are: 
  • Plague 1 — water turned into blood; fish died
  • Plague 2 — frogs
  • Plague 3 — biting insects 
  • Plague 4 - wild animals
  • Plague 5  — livestock disease 
  • Plague 6 - boils
  • Plague 7 — fiery hail (thunderstorm)
  • Plague 8 — locusts
  • Plague 9 — darkness for three days
  • Plague 10 - death of the first-born
** and *** - Behemoth and Leviathan are central to OT mythology, so take care with your interpretation here.  We have resident experts.

8) iphones

A part-time evangelist from our village built a replica of the Ark.

Q for T4A
1. how much sheet metal needed for the Ark?
2. how many behemoths can you fit in the Ark (trick queston!)?

This is a modern interpretation, following AlexEro's lead. 

Very good choice here on 8 - locust plague was bad - they were everywhere, total destruction and distraction.

You mean because Behemoth and Leviathan are real?  
Being mythological and being real are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

Following Cuch's analysis,

6) boils => bitcoins

rationale - painful, personal impact, and possibly contagious.

Well, I would just ask that we hold off on suggesting the modern parallels for those two, because I am curious to see how AlexEro will do with it.

Sorry, this is not an interpretation. This is an explanation.
If You have ever read the Bible You probably know about those special guys, dedicated by The Author for the prediction an explanation of the forthcoming events.
Let me recommend to you to focus on modern sins, instead of "Plagues". See above.

That's fine - your terminology and outlook are then very precise, if not very flexible.

We will proceed with the Plagues, at least, as they certainly merit an explanation.

The other candidates for explanation or interpretation were carefully chosen and also deserve consideration.

Re: modern sins - indeed a fruitful area for exploration.  Dante could also be useful here.

Revelation 18:21:
"Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: "With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.""
That was an earthquake in Indonesia in December 2004. The tsunami wave was caused by huge shift in earth layers.
And it was Japan earthquake(s) with tsunami - Fukushima. Besides, Japan is (was) first in radio-electronics for many years, including robots and robot idolatry.
