Your theory proposes some interesting ideas, however, I found aspects of the Book of Esther that go against your theory. 1) (Esther 4:15-17) 15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, 16 “Go, assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa, and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maidens also will fast in the same way. ...

How do we reconcile Satan's authority over death with Christ's authority? First, I would suggest that the sequence of who has the "power of death" is irrelevant: only God has the power of life and death. From Revelation 12:9, it seems very clear "the dragon" = "the serpent of old" = the Devil and Satan". It should be ...

The question is predicated on the erroneous assumption that Revelation's chapters are Chronological. I know of no school of prophecy that suggests this.

Tony, That was a very good example you showed in Genesis where Eve added to the words.… Eve thought she was pretty smart. You could just tell she was leaning on her own wisdom because she was looking at the fruit from her senses. After all she was born soulish and easily tempted.

1 Corinthians 4: 6Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not be puffed up in being a follower of one of us over against the other. 7For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have ...

The quoted portion of a verse should not be divorced from its surroundings which says: Brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us not to go beyond what is written.
