Jesus gave his believers a gift, especially one that relates to the latter days. This gift is for those and only those who believe so deeply that there lies hidden truth that will eventually be extracted and understood before the Lord’s glorious return.

I personally have not met any that delve into the study of Revelation that are not convicted in the truth of the bible.
Why is Egypt or Assyria not one of the heads of Leviathan? Egypt invited the Hebrews into their country, and as it turned out, they heavily yoked them into bondage. They taught them evil paths that many of their wise men, sages, accepted and eventually lost their true path; the price they paid for this was dreadful.

I just ended chapter eleven of Revelation with my last post, and to be honest I did not feel like I did a very good job of it. For example: If someone asks you a question, stick with the most direct answer. There in my problem lies.
