    How is Light a destroying agent? Doesn't it give life, or bring forth life?


    Revelation 19:17
    Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God,


    sometimes things are never as they appear; nor are they otherwise. sometimes a blessing is a curse in disguise and sometimes a curse is a blessing in disguise. sometimes its all in how you look at it, or the state of mind.

    That depends on the strength an nature of the light.

    Too much intensity can burn away all life.

    Light in the visible spectrum can be safe at low intensities, but UV light can cause cancer and sterilize things.

    Don't forget that lasers are light. But they can be quite destructive.

    I stared up at the sun
    Thought of all the people,
    Places and things I've loved
    You can feel the light start to tremble
    Washing what you know out to sea
    You can see your life out of the window, tonight
    If I lose myself tonight
    It'll be by your side
    If I lose myself tonight

    I don't get how you relate that verse to light as a destroying agent. Light isn't destroying anything in that verse.

    apollo is considered a destroyer, an angel of death of sorts to those who don't have the seal upon the door. Revelation 7:3, Ezekiel 9:4

    Revelation 9:11
    They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.

    Psalm 40:2
    He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.

    Revelation 17:8
    The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit and go to destruction. And the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.

    desolation comes to a pharaoh. I AM the truth and the light, and the truth will set you free.

    The Greeks did not believe that Apollo was the angel of the bottomless pit. I think you're trying to link something that just isn't there.

    the sun rises from the inky abyss, just like horus in his boat.

    the understanding doesn't worship the sun/son, solomon, but worships what the light symbolizes.

    The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

    while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

    and love said let there be understanding, and there was understanding.

    but for those who prefer darkness; as jesus quoted isaiah........

    For this people's heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’


    Revelation 2:17
    He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.’

    Like I said, the link you are trying to imply simply isn't there, it is just there in your mind.

    death and desolation

    Revelation 3:2
    Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God.

    Revelation 3:3
    Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you.

    I AM the beast. I AM that i am. God is a consuming fire.

    Romans 1:18 [Full Chapter]
    [ God's Wrath on Unrighteousness ] For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
