    Roy Hartsell: Read Chapter 1 again. The remnant of Baal will be destroyed, consumed, by fire and annihilated. Read ALL the books of Kings and absorb what really happened to all the kings of Israel who practiced occultism. They perished and were condemned. Research the hexagram, its links to occultism, to Freemasonry, to Satanism. Read Is chapter 24 on the Apocalypse: the dark clouds, red moon, and Revelations. The 'remnant of David ' is NOT modern 'Israel ', it is the remnant of the followers of Christ.

    Verse 14, the acronym CORMORANT stands for Cortical Maps Of Resistant Anisotropic Networks. This is biological mutation which could be associated with nuclear fallout exposure. According to dictionary, a related word to bittern is a military siege. The word lintel may be symbolic of nuclear fallout because it hangs above humanity in the jet stream.

    Read it! Read it! It is an end time prophecy. Israel is taking their land back.

    God is against the churches .
    GOD is telling us to turn away from everything, and turn to HIM only, His word and worship him. to cry out to HIM for mercy.
    This world and everything in it is perishing.
