And then there's #thatpart : " Yet out of his regard for His Oaths & for the guests-" Herod- in the Midst of all the fucked shit he was doing- had the point of view that His oaths were solid...& his guests- the yes men he'd so surrounded himself with that him wanting to openly fuck a child in his own family wasn't a big deal to-were of the utmost caliber of human beings. Because the beast driving his ship had handpicked those fuckers to NOT say shit. He Really believed -as he fucked his sister in law & clamored to fuck his niece- that HE was a moral compass. Because those picked told him as much. That crack of light that got in as he listened TO John & Liked what he heard? Was snuffed out by the enablers feeding on him. But he arranged it himself, orchestrated it. Never forget the Tale's irony: that John was supposedly born six months before Jesus. Jesus babe & fam had to flee because a Herod(can't recall if it's the Same dude in the unfolding but same fam) ordered the death of all kids under 2. & John's dad worked for the temple so it's not like he wasn't around. Here Herod is jamming to a song that he'd tried to snuff out, almost being freed by it....are you really surprised that sent shockwaves of alarm through those he'd lined up around him post infanticide massacre? Those you line up to lie to you will kill you to keep you to what you brought the buggers on for. You brought them in on a lie that you both agreed to accept. You think you're allowed to recant? You think they are going to let you get saved when they have a bond to the death with you over your dark hidden shit? Be prepared for a fight. They'll be willing to try to kill you and anything beginning to bring the light TO you just to not face who they became to be with you... If Your ass wakes up. Ask any body who barely survived their "ascent" who it was who tried the hardest to being them down & when. All them about the real love that woke them up by outright refusing to fight demons in their employ of their own accord...who they never realized it was so obvious They were behind. Ask them how long it was before they got IT. ...The bible is more Shakespearean than fn Shakespeare lol.
