Re: Prophecies
quote:
There was a time in history subsequent to the time of the prophecy to the tune of several centuries when the popes of Rome essentially ruled the rulers of the world, i.e. ".....kings of the earth have commited fornication with her." (Revelation 18:3).

And there was a time in history when the Emperors of Rome did the exact same thing. Considering that the people writing and reading revelations would have been much more concerned with the actions of the Roman Empire and that Nero written in Aramaic equals 666. The destruction of Rome did cause much chaos and destruction. The actual fires of Rome may not have been "seen" but their effects certainly were. I believe the much more logical conclusion is that which affects the original intended readers and not those latecomers who hang onto pre fulfilled political commentary. Ding, ding, ding and the answer is ancient Rome. Thanks for playing, hopefully we can continue to construe ancient documents to justify homicide until we do find a way to self fulfill the prophecy.

Do you have a video you could post of this? That would be hot

Re: Prophecies
buzz I don't see anywhere in the thread where you have refuted anything about Rome. I see plenty of times where you would rather it be the Vatican, but as far as proving it couldn't be Rome...... well maybe I am missunderstanding your rebuttal. Could you explain to me again then why you think Rome was not the mentioned city.

Re: The Pope Teaches #666 = Nero
I was incorrect about aramaic, thank you for finding my error.However in Hebrew Nero Caesar" is spelled “נרון קסר”, pronounced "Neron Qe[i]sar". Adding the corresponding values yields 666, as shown:
Resh=200 Samekh=60 Qoph=100 Nun=50 vav=6 Resh=200 Nun=50 Total=666

or Removing the terminal נ (written as ן) makes the name "Nero" rather than "Neron", and makes the numeric value 616
Resh Samekh Qoph vav Resh Nun TOTAL
200 60 100 6 200 50 616
Wich is believed to be the original reading. Either way we have a numerical correspondence to Nero. But we could really use numbers to make the number 666 apply to anybody, Ronald Reagen anyone?
