I was down on my luck working for the Salvation Army...The shelter is where I reside
I'm going to kick off another blog with a thought around our Japanese hints for verse 5. Line 4: Weight and roots. For this section, I was told you should think about architecture/buildings/structures
I'm not so much concerned with this line and it's meaning. Notice the hint refers only to line 4. However, if you browse the full list of hints, there are others which span across more than one verse line. This leads me to believe we may have some clever misdirection in verse 5 which separates Weight and roots extended from Together saved the site. What a perfect feint. Who wouldn't initially read these lines together?
Humor me and let's decouple these lines and focus on Together saved the site. Should we be reading this line as "Together saved" is the site? Let's look at some definitions.
Army - a large number of people or things, typically formed or organized for a particular purpose.
Salvation - deliverance from sin and its consequences, believed by Christians to be brought about by faith in Christ.
A large number of people formed for a purpose - together? Deliverance from sin and its consequences - saved? I'll go out on a limb and say these are pretty damn close. So, is this our actual site?
Come on baby won't you show me what you got...I want your salvation whoa-ooo!
