I think I have it now.' words seem just not enough in this case.' thanks and best to all who read this..

A note.' When I describe 'the furnace' I personally am not alluding to hell.' I point you to the word 'consume'

As you may know this word also means destroy.. Now this word is used many times in the Bible when people who work against God are 'consumed' sometimes by fire (killed) or handed over to their own destructive way; to their doom.' Now you may remember many times 'world leaders' have used this description of modern 1st world society 'the consumer society?' Yes?? so the destructive society??

Maybe?? Even saying we had to go to war to protect the destructive society.. Yes?? Or maybe I'm wrong..?? Anyway since a while which age of man has polluted/ caused the world more destruction??

Shorter than a candles curtsy, lower than its holders brim, Half a glass holds no full measure So ever seems the future dim.' Dim before the light is gathered; from the folds & fields of dawn Where no cockerel struts and swaggers,where no pillowed cloud is torn' There the angels watch below them; man upon his prideful course In The higher heights above them, sits the One upon his horse, Bridled saddled shod and ready, waiting for the call to ride Many mouths's commiting slander, buy and sell some tend to scorn.' Lives of people sold and traded, slavery rife from west to east Who will own to death and torture, can you see; mark of the beast? Very large, the furnace growing 'consuming' all is its true course False prophet finds the need/reasons; a certain tool its tour de force Airway 'media', t v occult involvement, once its name was 'medium' Elijah fought it many times, as on mt Carmel; in fire answer came to him'

I thank you for your comment & the thought P D, the thing is I struggle myself with placing the message; as I get everything coming at once, or bits at a time.. So I am more concerned with getting it clear than worrying about structure and so on, for what structure is in infinity or eternity? I don't know, so I just concentrate on making it as clear as I can.. Hope your year goes well dear friend'
