    In my SS class on the spirit world, we have concluded the "easy" part - study of angels (good and bad). Now we are going "up" the heirarchy of spirit beings into the more powerful realm.

    I am teaching on the various "living beings" of Isaiah 6 (seraphs), Ezekiel 10 (cherubs), Ezekiel 1 and Revelation 4 (living creatures), Daniel 7 (beasts), and watchers/holy ones (Daniel 4)

    I will soon begin the final, highest level of the spirit beings, demons (gods, lords, satyrs)

    These spirit beings are AWESOME as described in Scripture and mind-boggling even to Stephen King fans! Does anyone know of a resource for PICTURES (artist conceptions) of these?

    I mean four or six wings, eyes on all sides of body, hands hidden beneath the wings, four-faced, cloven hoofed . . . Probably not for 4-5 year old kindergarten class!

    Thanks

    6=# of man or humanity
    7-# of perfection
    eyes=understanding

    Thus 7 eyes = perfect understanding

    Wish I was in your class Bro.Bob, sounds great.

    P.S. Careful, some in Rev. 4 might not be angels but men.

    Be sure and don't leave out the Highest of all the spirits: God! Of course all the rest is pretty much a waste of time in my view. Also Clarence Larkin has some charts that depict renderings of spirit beings.

    Vah! Denuone latine loquebar? Me ineptum. Interdum modo elabitur.

    Sic hoc adfixum in obice legere potes, et liberaliter educatus et nimis propinquus ades

    Actually Dr Bob,

    The "mea culpa" is part of the Catholic mass (which you probably already know).

    After the priest "consecrates" the host (transforms the bread), he elevates it and shows it to the congregation. At that time the communicants are supposed to look at the host and strike their breast three times and say :
    "mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa".
    which is to say (or so we were told):
    "through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault".

    And my feeble attempt at a Latin response to YOUR Latin said

    "Oh! Was I speaking Latin again? Silly me. Sometimes it just sort of slips out."

    and

    "If you can read this, you are both very well educated and too close to the screen."

    Dr. Bob, haven't you heard that "anything you type can and will be used against you"? That looks dangerously Roman what you typed there.

    Te absolvo, frater!
