You may have to scroll down the pages called by the links below to view all of the verses.

1. here are some Scriptures that describe principles of logic: 1 John 4:6, 2 Corinthians 1:18, Psalms 52:3, 1 Kings 18:21,  Deuteronomy 30:19, Genesis 3:5, 3:22.

2. The truths of logic were known to the ancient Greek philosophers as far back as 500 BC to such men as Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato.

3. These verses describe the relationship in logic of material implication. Material implication occurs when one statement proves another statement. If one statement proves or implies another, then a true statement can prove a true statement, a false statement can prove a false statement, and even a false statement can prove a true statement. But a true statement cannot prove a false statement. See 1 John 2:21.

4. For example, if an opposing witness in a trial should contradict himself, then the other side should win the case.

5. We make plans because we believe that certain actions have consequences. So we try to engineer those actions to achieve the goals we desire. But this requires faith that reality respects the premise-conclusion relationship of logic, the premise being our actions, the conclusion being the goals. It is also this faith in consequences that drives some to predict events of religious importance and ultimate purpose. And this faith also causes some to believe in a destiny or fate. See for example, Psalm 49:14, Jeremiah 43:11, 1 Corinthians 2:7, Ephesians 1:11.

6. We can define reality to be a conjunction of all the facts that exist. For at least we can say this exists and that exists and this and that all co-exist together. And in logic a conjunction can be expressed in terms of implication. If two facts exist in conjunction, then one proves the other, and the other proves the one. So one fact produces them all and all facts produces the one. I find this principle at work in proverbs such as an eye for an eye, do unto others as you'd have them do unto you, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, the final theory will explain creation, etc.

7. here I'm saying that logic is more than a human language to keep track of true and false propositions. I'm using the word logic to describe an overall principle in nature that keeps all the facts in reality consistent with each other.

8. In other words I think ultimately the laws of physics will be derived from the principles of logic alone, and this final theory of everything will be able to even explain exactly how prophetic events can come about.

9. Scripture compares angels to principles of reason. See 2 Samuel 14:17, 14:20.

10. here I'm casting logic into the role of God and angels into the role of principles of reason. For the logic that maintains the consistency of all facts seems to exists everywhere at all times and controls everything. So it is eternal, omnipresent, and all powerful like God.

11. See John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God." The use of "Word" is a translation of the original Greek word "logos" which also mean reasoning. The word "logic" is also derived from the same Greek word "logos". So I think it's fair to say God is Logic. In Genesis God spoke and the world was created. One can only state propositions. And another term for word is proposition. This seems to indicate that the logic of propositions was used to create the universe.

12. In other words, I believe life arose as a process of adaptation as creatures with better survival skills gained advantage over creatures that did not. Survival skills are enhanced by a better awareness of one's environment and competitors. This process eventually led to creatures with self-awareness and intelligence.

13. With self-awareness comes awareness of one's own actions. We end up having to justify our own behaviour and the choices we make. A soul is something that develops as one interacts with people and problems in his surroundings.

14. I think this is the purpose of Messiah. The Messiah was to be more than a prophet. The ancient prophets prophesied the coming of Messiah as a means to fulfil all the promises of God. It is as though the Messiah was the representative of God himself. John 1:1-14, "...and the Word was God... The Word became flesh..." Also see Note 11 on page 10 and 1 John 5:20. We all regret not being perfect in righteousness which assume it is possible to be perfectly devoted to what is right, which only God can do.
    If anyone wants to argue about this, he should consider that he is admitting in the very process of denying it that here he is, a human being, claiming to state what is right and manifest truth. So of course I expect the Truth of God to be manifest in the flesh.

15. There are many founders of religion. But how can we know which one represents the truth? It can be shown in logic that for any statement, p, it is true that p = ~p => p, where p is a proposition, ~ means negation, and => is the symbol for implication or proof. So if someone's life represents the truth, then he will have to rise from the dead to prove it.

16. See 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12, 1 John 3:8, 1 Corinthians 13:10.

17. See Isaiah 65:17-18, Revelation 21.

18. The theory is that there is a reason for everything, and so the purpose of reality is to demonstrate what is logical. Logic only proves what is true or false. So we should ultimately expect two states to be manifested in reality to represent the states of true and false. We can call these states heaven and hell. People represent propositions, which is evident because people fight over statements of faith and stake their lives on what they believe. God represents truth and the devil represents falsehood. God plays the role of logic, so that the Last Judgment of all mankind fulfills the role of logic which decides what is true or false.

19. See Isaiah 30:15, hebrews 4:11.

20. See 1 Peter 2:11.

21. See 3 John 11.

22. See 1 John 3:8.

23. See 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12.

24. See 2 Thessalonians 2:4.

25. In chapters 23-26, I'm trying to show that it is inescapable that you have a soul, that you are responsible for what you think and do, and that you will be held accountable for your actions.

26. See Matthew 13:10-12, Proverbs 4:23, Jeremiah 17:10.

27. See Matthew 8:13, 9:29, 21:22, Romans 10:10. And likewise a bad faith will result in bad circumstances.

28. It's not logical to conclude there are no consequences. If your theory is that your perception will cease after death, then you should consider that it would be theoretically impossible to observe any evidence that your theory is correct if your perception ends. And a theory that's not even theoretically possible to confirm is inherently invalid.

Part 2

1. See Isaiah 26:9.

2. See Joel 2:30-31.

3. I believe the correct interpretation of Revelation 8:6-9:2 is a comet striking the earth. A comet with its tail sweeping upwards would look like "a great star, blazing like a torch" (Rev 8:10). As it burned up in the atmosphere and made impact it would look like "a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the see" (Rev 8:8) and like "a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth" (Rev 9:2). The impact would penetrate the earth's crust and send up a cloud of ash and debris that would look like, "he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace" (Rev 9:2). The heat of that impact would cause "A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up", (Rev 8:7). The ash cloud would cause "The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss" (Rev 9:2) and "a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night" (Rev 8:12). And if the comet was made of iron, it would cause "A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died" (Rev 8:8) and also cause "A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter" (Rev 8:11).

4. See Isaiah 24:1-13.

5. See Daniel 12:4.

6.  See Rev 8:8. The only seas mentioned in the Bible are the Red sea, the sea of Galilee, and the Mediterranean sea. The Mediterranean sea is the only sea large enough.

7. See Matthew 24:3-8.

8. See Matthew 24:14.

9. See Isaiah 8:9-10, Matthew 24:24, Revelation 16:13-14.

10. See Revelation 19:19-21.

11. See Psalm 2:1-2.

12. See Zechariah 14:2.

13. See 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, Isaiah 14:12-16.

14. See Isaiah 52:10.

15. See Romans 11:25-26.

16. See Matthew 27:20-25.

17. See Josephus, War of the Jews. When Jerusalem was under siege in 70 AD by the Romans, political factions amongst the Jews fought against each other and killed many Jews. This is not to say that the Gentiles were any better. But God expects more from those who have his Word.

18. See Matthew 23:37-39.

19. See Isaiah 28:10-11 and Malachi 4:5-6, where "send to you" means not from them, and where "turns the hearts of the fathers to their children..." means he is not one of those fathers or children. It also means he comes with an easy explanation to understand scripture that fathers can teach to their children. See also Matthew 23:38-39, where "comes" means not already there.

20. See Romans 11:15.

21. See Malachi 3:1, 4:5-6, Isaiah 40:3-5.

22. See Romans 11:11, 11:25.

23. See Romans 11:26.

24. See Isaiah 52:11.

25. I mean if it comes to choices, and it may. See Isaiah 52:10-11. In other words, this is a spiritual retreat to get away from all the distractions of a hectic life in order to focus on knowing God.

26. See Isaiah 40:3-5, Hosea 2:14-16.

27. The beast of Rev 13.

28. See Numbers 6:24-26.

29. See Revelation 7:2-4.

30. See Luke 12:49.

31. See Zechariah 14:4-8.

32. See Revelation 12, where the woman clothed in the sun is the remnant of Israel that returns to God (Romans 11), which is also the 144,000 of Rev 7. Crying out in labor pains is the anguish of coming to faith in Christ (Galatians 4:19). The male child is Jesus. Chapter 82 here describes the woman fleeing to the desert. The river described here is my interpretation of the river of Rev 12:15. And the seal of God in Rev 7:2 is the Vision of God sealing the fate of the remnant. Being lifted up is a type of rapture, compare 2 Kings 2:7-11, Acts 8:36-40, and Rev 12:14.

33. See Revelation 7:1-8.

34. See Luke 3:16, similar to John 16:7 and 2 Kings 2:9-10.

35. See Romans 10:14-15, Isaiah 49:6.

36. See Rev 17:12-13.

37. See Revelation 13:16-18.

38. Refers to the beast of Rev 13:1-8.

39. See 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4.

40. At this point I would caution everyone not to speculate as to who is the beast of Rev 13. At this time he has not committed the crimes for which he will be condemned, so it would be a false accusation.

41. See Daniel 9:27.

42. See 1 John 2:18-19, 2 Corinthians 11:14, Isaiah 14:12, Ezekiel 28:14-15.

43. See Rev 11:3-5.

44. These verses refer to the two prophets of Revelation 11:3-12. My intent here is to offer some explanation of how these prophets might have such power. But if I have not given sufficient reason, then perhaps this is something not meant to be understood yet. Others, in good faith, may have a different interpretation of these things. They are entitled to their opinion. I only offer these verses for your private consideration. And I have no intent to publically debate or discuss the matter.

45. See John 17:15.

46. See Matthew 26:53.

47. This refers to the false prophet of Rev 13:11-17.

48. See Rev 13:12.

49. See Rev 13:14-15.

50. See Rev 13:16-17.

51. See Rev 13:7.

52. Chapter 100-102 describe some of the curses that the wicked people of that day will justly deserve. See Revelation 16. In later chapters I show what cosmic event causes these judgments.

53. See Rev 13:12. Perhaps this is where this man loses any faith he may once have had.

54. See Rev 16:16.

55. See Zachariah 12:2.

56. There were 7 kings who have attacked Jerusalem and plundered the temple. Shishak of Egypt, 917BC (1 Kings 14:25-26), Jehoash of Israel, ~790 BC (2 Kings 14:11-14), Hazael of Aram, (2 Kings 12:17-18), Nebachadnezzar of Babylon, 597BC (2 Kings 24-25), Antiochus Epiphanes of the Seleucid empire, 168BC (1Maccabees 1:20-63), Marcus Licinius of Rome, 54BC (Josephus), and Titus of Rome, 70AD (Josephus). I believe these are the 7 kings explained in Rev 17:10. At the time John wrote the book of Revelation, 5 would have fallen, one may have been, but Titus may not have yet begun to reign. Others may count these kings differently.

57. See Daniel 11:40-45, Isaiah 14:13.

58. See 2 Thessalonians 2:4.

59. See Daniel 11:45- 12:1, Revelation 12:7. I use the name Michael and John because Michael is the name of one who opposes Satan, John is a name associated with one who announces the coming of God.

60. The words quoted here may not be the actual words said. These words are offered to show intent.

61. See Daniel 11:36-45, Isaiah 14:12-15.

62. The Vision referred to here is also recorded in this book in later chapters.

63. See Luke 11:20.

64. I have no intent to give out a script on how to kill these men. I have no further comment about this.

65. See Rev 11:7-10.

66. See Rev 16:12-16, Matthew 24:15-25.

67. See Rev 11:10.

68. See Rev 11:11.

69. See Rev 11:12.

70. See Rev 11:13.

71. See Rev 6:15-17. I believe a nearby supernova would fulfil many of the predictions prophesied. The gamma rays of a supernova would create nitrogen oxides that would destroy the ozone in the atmosphere. With little ozone, there is little protection from the UV light of the sun, and people would break out with radiation burns (Rev 16:2, 16:8). The nitrogen oxides would cause a haze that would darken the sky (Rev 16:10). And it would rain down as nitric acid and poison the waters, turning them red, and killing all the fish (Rev 16:3). If the supernova is behind the sun, the sudden burst of radiation would sweep away some of the magnetic fields of the sun. And the solar wind would force those fields toward earth and shake the planet to its core when they interact with earth’s magnetic field. Consider also 2 Peter 3:10, Isaiah 24:18-21.

72. See Rev 13:13-14.

73. See 2 Thessalonians 2:8.

74. See 1 Thessalonians 4:17.

75. See Daniel 7:13-14, Matthew 16:27, 24:30.

79. See Isaiah 14:13, Daniel 11:45.

80. See Luke 24:36-37, John 20:19.

81. See Matthew 24:29-30.

82. See Matthew 18:15-17.

83. Another word for spirit would be identity, or the essential characteristics that motivates its actions. See Article in the back called "How do you define God.

84. See 2 Thessalonians 2:8.

85. See 1 Corinthians 15:52.

101. See Rev 19:17-21, Ezekiel 39:17-20.

102. See 2 Thess 2:3, I interpret the man of lawlessness being revealed as such by the act of being overthrown by the Lord Jesus. For that man might change his ways before then and not be condemned.

103. See 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Isaiah 26:19, Daniel 12:2-3.

104. See 1 Corinthians 15:51-53.

106. See 1 John 3:2.

107. See John 14:21.

108.See Rev 3:12, where Michael has overcome the devil, Rev12:7-11.

109. The tradition is that when God appears, pillars are erected as witnesses to the event, see Exodus 24:4-11, Genesis 28:12-22. And in the New Testament, believers are often pictured as God's house, see 1 Peter 2:5, Hebrews 3:6, Ephesians 2:19-22, 1 Corinthians 3:17, 2 Corinthians 6:16, Galatians 2:9, 1 Timothy 3:15, Isaiah 56:3-7.

111. See Matthew 7:24.

112. See Isaiah 54:11-12.

113. The tradition is that the altar site is where God removed evil from Israel. See Genesis 22:1-14, 2 Samuel 24:16-25.

114. 1 Kings 8:29.

115. It is interesting that this is similar to the description of animal sacrifice on the altar as prescribed in the Old Testament. Perhaps burnt offerings on the altar will be needed to create a smoke screen to keep people from staring directly into the face of God. And the sight of blood might remind them that this is a solemn place of judgment.

116. See Ezekiel 47:1-8, Joel 3:18, Zechariah 13:1, 14:8.

117. See Isaiah 60.

118. See Isaiah 6:1-5.

119. It's impossible to prove that any person or thing exists everywhere at all times. I'm using the word "God" here in the Greek sense of the word as in an immortal being of noble intent who has power to dispense eternal justice on every person.

120. See Joel 2:28-29.

121. See Isaiah 2:4.

122. See Joel 2:32.
