Presentation 7:1 - 8:23 (STRIV)

All quotations are from the Standard-Text Revised International Version (STRIV), unless otherwise noted.


[7] 1 After this a great sight appeared in the heavens.
2 I saw a despicable beast, with seven heads and ten jowls, seated on a high throne, clothed in the finest gold and silver, 3 and all around him were lesser beasts in a circle, praising his name. 4 Each of the lesser beasts had the face of an animal of the field: some were like unto sheep, and some were like unto oxen, and there were many others besides, each of its own kind. 5 The lesser beasts were covered in eyes, yet the eyes were closed, and they had each one a bottle which was like wine, yet it was not wine, and they drank from them continually.

6 The beast on the throne proclaimed, "The LORD has abandoned us because we give shelter to feminazis." 7 And all the lesser beasts sang in a loud voice, "Dittos."

8 Then the beast on the throne proclaimed, "We must close our borders against the immigrants, lest there be famine in the land," 9 and all the lesser beasts cried out, "Dittos."

10 Then the beast on the throne proclaimed, "The LORD brings poverty to the poor, and riches to the wealthy, and he will surely destroy any who take from the rich or give to the poor." 11 And the lesser beasts answered him, "Dittos, dittos, megadittos in the highest."

12 Then the lesser beasts prostrated themselves before the throne, singing,

13 "None other is like unto thee,
none other has the wisdom of the LORD.
14 You are worthy to receive
dittoes, dittoes, and megadittoes,
forever and ever, 15 for the LORD speaks
through you. 16 Surely those who
revere your name will be preserved
forever and ever, even guarded
from that fire which is to come."

17 And then the angel of the LORD who was with me said, "Go and measure the circumference of the throne of the beast," and I was given a measuring rod. 18 And I went to measure the circumference, yet I never reached the end, for the end of the throne was always just beyond my arms. 19 And I said to the angel, "The throne is too large; I am unable to measure it," 20 but the angel of the LORD said, "Even so, the LORD will blot it out forever; no trace of it will remain."


[8] 1 After this I saw a large city with a single gate, guarded by a great warrior, yet the city was empty, its market silent, and the warrior had an unfamiliar name inscribed in the wall above him. 2 And I asked the angel who was with me the meaning of the vision, and he said, 3 "The great city before you had many gates, and one by one, the people sold their gates to the warriors of other lands, 4 and their gates were fused together and closed, sold and abandoned and traded, 5 until no one could enter or exit the town, and all who were in it starved, and the name of the town is Monopoly."

6 Then I was taken to a lake, where a man was in a boat fishing, and there were many fish in the boat, yet the man continued. 7 And I asked the angel of the LORD why the man continued to fish when he had many fish in the boat. 8 The angel of the LORD said, "Let the fish be revealed," and I saw that the fish the man had caught were of an inedible kind, and also they were all about an eighth of a reshasha in length. 9 "Where are the other fish?" I asked the angel who was with me, and he replied, 10 "The others all consumed one another, and only this kind, because it is poisonous, was left in the lake."

Very prophetic. This does capture a lot of what's going on. And your style is becoming more and more authentic-seeming. I think during Biblical days you could have had a hot career with this stuff. Though you might not have been paid any better than you are now.
