Since Daniel was thinking in terms of years, Gabriel’s words to him were almost a play on words. In effect, Gabriel was saying, “Daniel, it’s not seventy years, but seventy sevens of years.” The Hebrew word shābûá in the text literally means “sevens” or more precisely, “a period of sevens.” Had the Hebrew word meant “weeks,” (as translated) the text in the original language would have been shavuot.
If it wasn’t so true, it might be comical. Unfortunately, because it is true, it is far from comical. When I ask (in the title of this article) why liberals seem to determined to change America, I’m speaking of what appears to be the general view held by a majority of liberals in America. Certainly, there are exceptions to every rule.
The point is that though judgment was coming and did come to Noah’s generation as well as Lot’s, life went on with a sense of normalcy that guided most people’s lives each day. In spite of the fact that Noah was building this huge boat in the middle of a field, people continued with their lives. They married, they gave in marriage, they worked, they cooked meals, they did the normal things that people do today.
The elite throughout the centuries have always done whatever they could to make as much money as possible off of the “little people” who are – to them – little more than serfs within their kingdom. We see this repeatedly going back to the Rothchild family when they realized that they could make a good deal of money by loaning their own money to governments, instead of individuals, families, or even small businesses. They stood to make a good deal more money through these loans to governments and the loan was always guaranteed because of that nation’s ability to tax the people in order to repay it.
I believe Paul was implying something far wider in scope than simply talking about those who professed to be Christians and then walked away completely. I now believe he was talking about a huge cultural shift that would take place worldwide in the End Times. I especially believe this would occur in places like America where the founding documents of our country referenced God, understood that He exists as Creator, and in fact, laid the foundation for this country solidly upon biblical principals. While this does not presuppose a covenant with God, the clear reality is that He was included in the process of creating America.
Most of the characters are very difficult to relate to. For the most part, they are decent actors who say their lines and obviously found their marks for the cameras. There is also action as well, but overall, the the characters created by the actors are not that engaging. They tend to be skin deep and that’s about it, though they obviously tried to present a more than one-dimensional character.
Ever since the Sandy Hook situation, people have over-reacted regarding situations that involve guns. I read recently that a 7-year-old student was suspended for carving his breakfast into a shape that somewhat resembled a gun.  The teacher who saw him do it got “mad” at him. Look, we all know how dangerous strawberry tarts can be once they have been modeled to look like guns!
Kingston goes onto say that this is exactly why he and other fiscal conservatives voted “no” because they didn’t want to raise the debt ceiling again and the spending reductions “specifically protected the main problem – entitlements and welfare.” Raising the debt ceiling could lead to another credit downgrade for the country. Making sensible cuts while possibly adding certain tax revenues would be much more intelligent. Then again, we are talking about the way it works in Washington.
Marston was recently caught with his foot completely in his mouth in an email response he sent to one Joanna Johnson-Smith, who is the main organizer of a 2nd Amendment Rally. Before I go any further, let me say that this idea that is routinely bandied about that 92% of Americans want an assault on certain weapons is really nuts, yet because this figure is noted often, people accept it as truth.
There is really quite a list of events and situations where the Obama administration has kowtowed to Islam and individual Muslims. One can only wonder why this is the case. I believe it has a great deal to do with what I have discussed before; that the global elite is so busy using the Muslim Brotherhood to topple one regime after another (eventually to be replaced with something else entirely) that they are trying to give the illusion that Islam is above the law.
