Today if the UN was moved to Jerusalem and 'they' were given an open check-book the same plans they have for the watershed area of the rivers in Genesis:2 could go global instead.
Does Israel know I'm pro Israel? Probably not.
Ye have not yet resisted unto blood,
striving against sin.
And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children,
despise not thou the chastening of the Lord,
nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth,
and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
If ye endure chastening,
God dealeth with you as with sons;
for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
But if ye be without chastisement,
whereof all are partakers,
then are ye bastards,
and not sons.
Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us,
and we gave them reverence:
shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits,
For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure;
but he for our profit,
that we might be partakers of his holiness.
Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous,
nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down,
and the feeble knees;
And make straight paths for your feet,
lest that which is lame be turned out of the way;
but let it rather be healed.
Follow peace with all men,
without which no man shall see the Lord:
One of the long speeches posted in the Indian thread mentioned a few Churches and low and behold the most important part of the 'Bible' is how God too the 12 Tribes out of Egypt. That is the only part of the Bible worth mentioning apparently. I couldn't resist sending them something that pointed to the Bible having 'other sheep' that are important. Guess who that is?? Gentiles and the Book of Isiah is the foundation for our journey to when we 'are led out of Egypt'.
The quick and dirty test is the message in Isaiah:1 as being the same command given to the Church in Romans:13, that is different than the one Moses delivered. The stories in the book all happen to Gentiles rather than any of the 12 Tribes, Isa:65 is only about the ones called 'the rest' in Re:20 and clearly they are only Gentiles as they are sent to the grave just hours before all members of the 12 Tribes. If the 'Elite' are so smart how can they miss a sign as big as that?? Since they have I doubt anybody but God can change that.
What should happen in the meantime if 'they' still believe they are living through the exodus wars and we are slated for extermination like Goliath and 'his kind'?
In a few cases some 'treasures' were carted off, including virgin children that ended up being married into the group. In those days the family that raised them until they were the right age also had the option of the woman becoming a servant to the man's 1st wife. If that did not happen her hymen was broken and she was then free to marry any boy she loved. The daughters born into the family were virgins when they were married and this were all 'arranged marriages' and more than a little money changed hands.
Bringing that into the 21st century does not seem to be 'all that difficult'. Make corporations 'natural daughters' who can be bought and sold many times and a living person marries for love and for life and it costs nothing for either side. How much value does a poor honest person have to a rich single person if he knows that when old age arrives he will have had a lot more fun than if he had married a rich liar, even a very beautiful one.
After all the old ways didn't work flawlessly in the past so why assume we have overcome that 'little hurdle already'. If nature has to adapt to survive why wouldn't 'society' have to follow the same rule? Change with the times or die.
So far humankind has Murphy's Law working 100% of the time so nothing really good or really bad seems likely to happen no matter how much or how little effort we put into 'things'.

I wonder what the people in Jerusalem are saying as this year has Passover and the weekly Sabbath running back-to-back like it was in the year of the cross
