“PHARMACY” - “FORNICATION” and book of
You think that God must always be 100 percent "consistent" in how and when he uses “words”?
Oh, do not count on 100 percent consistency with words and even other things. Most, that is most, of the time, days are from evening to evening, but now and again God throws in, without warning, that an evening belongs to the day light just gone. Roman/other nations time. That truth is in connection with the Passover, and Atonement; the appearance of Jesus after his resurrection---- well it's in some studies of mine, on those subjects. Sometimes the NT writers used Roman time and do not give you any warning.... so God does throw in exceptions at times, within the norm; just keeps you on your toes as we say.
Now the word "fornication" in the NT is # 4202 from 4204 and # 4203 also from 4204. It's all sexual immorality. See them in Strong's Concordance of ther Bible.
Next, a word that is used concerning sin, does NOT have to be connected with any other word around it in the same sentence. So in Revelation words used a number of times in the same verses, do not have to be somehow “connected” to each other, for as some may say, a deeper, hidden meaning. People will be into [when Revelation is fulfilled] sexual sins of all kinds, and will not repent.
Next in Revelation the Greek words used for "sorcery" are 5331, 5332, 5333 in Strong's Con. They are all basically connected---- see what Strong has to say on them.
Now see what Thayer's Greek/English Lexicon has to stay on those three words.
Think we should have the answer.
We could well be looking at, when in years to come when Revelation is fulfilled, a number of sins people will be into.
They could be into using substances [call them dugs or whatever] - many drug type substances for "getting high"---- marijuana [cannabis] is going to be legal in Canada this year ; more and more and more countries are legalizing it for recreational us. But we also have fentanel [however it is spelt], heroin, and on it goes. When things get REAL bad in a world blowing itself up, people will no doubt turn even more to these kinds of "make me feel good" drugs. Then there will be a rise in sorcery stuff, magic art stuff. The false prophet will be working miracles, so many will delve into black magic, and the like--- like, "Well if he does it I'll see if I can do it also - miracles." It will be a whole new culture then, we forget this when thinking about the actual fulfilment of the book of Revelation; it will be a world gone mad, crazy, insane, it's a time of trouble like no other EVER. Now meditate on that, WW2 will seem like a picnic on a sunny day in the park by comparison.
Morals are already in the toilet, but it will be more so in those days, Many will say come let us live it up now, in every way, sex, sex, sex, drugs, drugs, drugs, for tomorrow we may be dead.
It will be a time, when the demons will be in frenzy, people influenced by, even possessed by them. Satan inside the false prophet.... it is hard to really imagine how horrible it will be, from a true Christian looking at it all. Of course those under the false prophet will think it's great, and all from God to rule the world with their religion. But a huge part of the world will just be doing their own thing--- immoral in many ways, immoral sexually, immoral with use of drugs, immoral with magic art and sorcery. A world that has gone crazy mad, and if Jesus did not come, as he said, NO FLESH WOULD BE SAVED ALIVE---- the world would blow itself into extinction.
These verses in Revelation with "Pharma" etc. in them, words next to "fornication" have NOTHING at all to do with "birth control" substances, of various kinds, as SOME Roman Catholics would like to claim to uphold their "no birth control" doctrine.
