Thought-Sherds (It's a play on words, you know, "potsherds'' the little Earthenware fragments that Archaeologists find, with scriptures, notes, and things written on them,.... well if you have to explain it...... it's not so funny anymore)
Thoughtsherds: [thot '- surdz ] too small to be an article, but maybe big enough to make a difference.

Why is there a King of the North and a King of the South ?
been mentioned several times on this Website; Satan will often
give you two opposing choices, Both
of Which are Wrong.
As the End Process of this World gets under way, apparently a "Polarized World" will come into play. With a Dominant, more overtly Evil, "King of the North". And a soon-to-be Underdog "King of the South". Persons living then will feel that there are two choices. However, the 'Third Position', the one not offered, is what True Christians will have to find: The Path of Personal Integrity. AKA "The Narrow and Cramped Road".
Which takes us to the next "Thoughtsherd".
Who are the Four Horsemen, Specifically the rider of the White horse ?
The last three Horses/Riders are easy:
Horse/Rider Number 2 Red Horse/Rider with Great sword; War all over the Earth.
Horse/Rider Number 3 Black Horse/Rider with Scales; Famine/Global food shortages.
Horse/Rider Number 4 Pale Horse/Rider named Death; Enormous World-Wide Deaths (possible 25%)
(Actually, it's a Yellow-Green Horse, ick)
Each of those Horse-Rider combinations represents a Earth-Wide, Global Condition. In no case is a Specific Person indicated or implied. It is in all three cases a Global situation.
So, working backwards from Horses/Riders 2, 3, &4, and applying the same principles of description to Horse/Rider Number 1, it is logical to conclude that the White Horse/Rider with Bow is also a Global situation/condition and not a person.
From the time that the End of this World starts in dead earnest, it will be a Global challenge for all True Christians to keep Integrity and Conquer the World as Jesus, (who also rides a white horse, rev 19:11,14) did, which is the whole point of the the Tribulation/Endtimes ennyhoo. (John 16:33, see also Dan 7:21)
So, It's not Jesus, and it's not the Anti-Christ:
It's the Severe Global Challenge in the Endtimes for all Christians to keep Integrity and "Conquer" the World as Jesus did.
Kinda Obvious oncet yah seez it, huh ?
Why is Israel where Israel is ?
Location, location, location.
Looking at a Globe, the two largest land-masses on Earth; Africa & Eurasia, are only connected by one teeny-tiny bit of land, yup, the Sinai peninsula.
The cross-roads of the Ancient World.
All major trade routes funneled through there. And if you were in Eurasia and wanted to conquer Egypt/Africa or vice-versa you had to go through Israel. Interestingly the ultimate "choke-point" was the valley plain of Megiddo, yes, that Megiddo, as in Har-Magedon. (Ironically on Israel Highway 66.....)
And if you wanted a "Road-side Stand" to spread ideas from, Israel would have been the best spot on Earth.
In our world the "Gold Standard" of thinking is 'Analytical Thinking'. Few intellectual complements are regarded higher than to say that someone is an 'Analytical Thinker'.
But let's do some Analytical Thinking about Analytical Thinking. Analytical thinking, i.e. analysis, is the process of reducing or de-structuring something into it's elemental or fundamental parts. In other words, it is a destructive process. For example; if you were to analyze the construction of a large beautiful building by disassembly you may rightly conclude that the fundamental component of that building is a brick. And you would be right.
But it's just a Brick.
The opposite of Analytical Thinking would be "Synthelytical Thinking". A word that apparently doesn't exist (Googled it, nuttin', the exact antonym for analytical doesn't exist. Funny Huh ? ). Synthelytical Thinking is constructive thinking, it takes 'bricks' and creates Beautiful Homes.
God is a Synthelytical Thinker, thus; a Creator.
Satan is an Analytical Thinker, thus; a destroyer.
The highest form of thinking in Satan's world is Analytical, thus; destructive.
Analytical thinking has it's place, but it's not the "Gold Standard" of thinking.
For phun Google "Synthelytical Thinking", in "quotes", this exact spelling, (which is the exact antonym) , and guess where you'll end up ?
The Flip-Side of Free-Will
If I give you a Million Dollars, I obviously have a loss of one Million Dollars.
Put another way; financially, I'm One Million Dollars poorer, and Emotionally I'm one Million Dollars Richer.
When you give something from your heart there is a loss and a gain. The Loss is real, so is the Gain.
When God decided to give man free-will he knew He would experience some real Loss. Loss of a certain amount of control, actually, He was losing some of His free-will. But the gain was in knowing that the Gift He was giving was precious, very. Do you appreciate that ?
Please Give this some serious thought, the more you think about it the more amazed you will be.
You can exercise your Free-Will, but you can't Will your Free-Will.
"People don't resist change, they resist being changed".
God, in his Great Love&Generosity, made us in his Image.
And in his Great Wisdom, made us vewy, vewy, small.
