19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

Smith is not a believer in free markets. You should not be able to go where you want and get paid more or have a better situation. Smith views it as some sort of duty. The hypocrisy of liberals is sometimes amazing.

the apocalypse (http://www.theologyonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=102616)

Rev. 16:15-19 is an Earth quake dividing the city into thirds when Jesus lands on the Mt of Olives to destroy those that have gathered at Meggido (Armageddon) to destroy them.

Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. [ EARTHQUAKE ]

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains;

serpentdove
January 3rd, 2017, 03:27 PM
This is where the final battle will be fought.

And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [Rev. 16:16].

"This is the only occurrence of the word Armageddon in Scripture, although there are many references to it. It means “Mount of Megiddo.” It is a compound word made up of the Hebrew words Har, meaning “mountain,” and Megiddo, which is a mount in the plain of Esdraelon. I have been there several times. It is one of the most fertile valleys I have ever seen. I guess it is the most fertile valley in the world today. It is a place where many battles have been fought in the past. Vincent cites Clarke’s Travels regarding Megiddo in the plain of Esdraelon:

… Which has been a chosen place for encampment in every contest carried on in Palestine from the days of Nabuchodonozor king of Assyria, unto the disastrous march of Napolean Bonaparte from Egypt into Syria. Jews, Gentiles, Saracens, Christian crusaders, and anti–Christian Frenchmen; Egyptians, Persians, Druses, Turks, and Arabs, warriors of every nation that is under heaven, have pitched their tents on the plain of Esdraelon, and have beheld the banners of their nation wet with the dews of Tabor and Hermon.

“He gathered them together.” The “he” is possibly God Himself. Although Satan, Antichrist, and the False Prophet act in unison to force the nations of the world to march against Israel, they nevertheless fulfill the Word of God." McGee, J. V. (1991). Thru the Bible commentary: The Prophecy (Revelation 14-22) (electronic ed., Vol. 60, pp. 82–83). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
