  1. Some of this reminds me of the Book of Revelation. The horns, also the woman in the basket like the woman being pursued by the dragon. The scroll flying around like the scroll with the seven seals that Jesus opens. The two leaders like the two witnesses. Even the horses like the four horsemen. They seem to all be connected somehow.

  2. The Book of Zechariah has a lot of mistranslations done in English.

    If you understand Hebrew you would know this. In Chapter 5 it is explaining a thermonuclear ICBM.

    Zechariah had no way to explain a nuclear weapon and equated it to a flying scroll. Look at the dimension of the scroll and it is the size of an ICBM.

    Also, the word for woman and fire are very similar and the scribe that mistranslated it probably got the similarities confused or purposely mistranslated it.

    If you translate it right then you get an evil fire in a lead encased or covered basket that destroys and leaves a poisonous residue on the land. (Nuclear radiation-fallout)

    It is like wings of a stork the nuclear radiation poison fire in a lead encased container or basket to his best way to translate his vision was described. It was a rocket he was trying to explain. Israel is going to get nuked!!!

    Now you know a hidden prophesy people!!!

  3. "Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will save my people from the east country and from the west country, and I will bring them to dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in faithfulness and in righteousness.” (Zech. 8:7-8).

  4. Dream interpret, some women only focus on them self. As the woman is carried away, she still is only focus on her self. The basket is her false security. She base her life for protection. She does not realize the two women with wings are now in control of her. As the women is taken away from her country.

  5. Out of curiosity, how come on 12-14. You did not acknowledge " the mourning for the one they pierced" I feel like that's one of the strongest Jesus prophecy in scripture, to those who believe. Btw thanks for all the helpful videos. I plan on the reading the whole Bible. Just started few months ago during quarantine.

  6. Have you considered doing such content for other religions as well? If you believe in loving your enemies and the truth of Christianity , I would like to see you also represents other religions, so your viewers would choose to follow Jesus In greater heart and knowledge, and not to deal with other religions, without preparation
