Furthermore, in regards to how God did not actually command Medo-Persia to do these acts, but that this was just what Medo-Persia itself naturally did, at least initially then, in Dan 7:5, the supplanting of Babylon by Medo-Persia is prophesied by God, and is symbolically represented by a devouring Bear. The key thing to notice here is that the bear has 3 ribs in its mouth, which historically represents the three major conquests of Medo-Persia over the kingdoms of Lydia, Babylon and then Egypt, producing its World Hegemony. It thus had already ‘consumed the flesh’ i.e. off of these rib bones, and that is what had brought it to its present power. So to Medo-Persia, that approach had circularly been a ‘justified means’ for them So all this shows that they inherently were a power which conquered by “eating much flesh”. And that is what God judicially dealt to the likewise ruthless Babylon.

That Theological Understanding also explains the sticking issues in that debate conversation of why God, indeed at times, allow for the killing of the children of conquered enemies: a) An all-knowing God [which does not include knowing the (non-existent) Future] surely knew the depth of the corruption in a given society, and so, as involved with the also debated issue of homosexuality, once a child’s “plastic” mind has been forged into a sinful mold, it is unlikely/hard for them to turn away from it when they get older. (In fact, in these cases, God would have seen that these “children” had ‘participated in the sins of their fathers/parents’ and so could not be held blameless as for the (non-sinning) children/descendants mentioned in Ezek 18:14-20) So b) God could fore-expect that Israel having to take on the responsibility of caring of a large number of orphaned children would be both costly and at the likely peril of the strived-for righteous society of Israel when and as these children, forged/molded in (even abominable) sin, and with them likely having a persisting innate, deep-seated hatred against their conquerors Israel would either influentially and/or physically cause the detriment and/or destruction of the society and nation of Israel. So it would not be worth the cost of allowing them to live, nor also for them to either be left to regroup or become slaves to other nations which could later use/force them to fight against Israel. So in that larger applicable context of Divine Energy, it was better for them to be put to death, and also not “Supernaturally”, which itself would involve an expenditure of Divine Energy, but from the “energetic resources” that Israelites themselves already possessed. Proper Theology, which basically sees that God is “real” and so has a tangible, justifying reason why He does or does not do something, perfectly resolves these issues...
Moreover, it may actually have been that Moses had already spend much, possibly all of the 40 day and 40 nights mentioned in Exod 24:18 when, e.g around Day 37, God began to notice a movement within the camp towards the paganism and false worship which fully broke out in Exod 32:1ff, and so, in order to also provide these ‘easily distracted’ people of His on Earth with an object-lesson reminder of His Will, He then proceeded to additionally give the Sanctuary Service Laws stipulated in Exod 25:1-31:11 based on all of what He had (lit. “(indirectly) cause to be exhibiting/showing” (=Heb. Hiphil participle)) him in Heaven during that prior time (=Exod 25:9, 40) as also, but supplementary, part of that OT Covenant, -yet all as part of the (secondary “Law of Moses” which was later written down on parchment, and expanded+detailed in the book of Leviticus. (cf. Deut 31:26-27)) (And in closing, God distinctly reemphasized the great importance of His Seventh Day Sabbath, from the already given, and stone-Finger-inscribed, Ten Commandment Law (Exod 31:12-18; 32:15-16)).
So in that context of Jer 7:1-15ff where the rebellious people were mindless ‘trusting merely in the (now) Temple structure’, God was here rightly reminding them that this sacrificially system was actually never part of His initial plan. (=John 2:18-21; cf. Hos 6:6|Matt 12:7). Indeed as God relatedly adds in Hos 6:7, He had a default condition of “obedience” with Adam (Gen 2:16-17), and not one of the subsequent sacrificial system (PP 68.1; cf. Gen 3:21) when he likewise violated that ‘(mere) obedience covenant’ (Hos 6:7).
* This alludes to the instances when God also took the lives of (surfacely) seeming innocent children, even infants, while executing judgements on guilty adults. (e.g. 1 Sam 15:2-3). Well, on one hand, the children were already greatly affected by the utter wickedness of the grown up who they lived with, and so this seed of wickedness would be hard to root out of them, and thus be a hazard of being later reproduced. Moreover, with all of the grown ups/adults capitally adjudged, someone would have to take care of possibly millions of children and infants. That could not be an imposed burden that God would place on Israel, but would indeed have to remain the natural burden of those adjudged wicked/guilty adults. And so, rather than leaving these kids to live out a surely horrendous hellishly suffering existence where they tried to survive as long as possible without any adult care, with them probably resorting to cannibalism of the weaker ones, or even be taken over by another nation to, surely, become slaves, and even sexually enslaved and abused, God mercifully had Israel’s army also put them to death along with their adjudged/failing parents. And given what the teaching about the standard of the final judgement is (e.g. Rom 2:14-16; Acts 17:30-31; cf. Matt 25:31-46|LDE 218.3-219.3), where all which be judged by the amount of light that they had (e.g. John 3:19), or (reasonably) could have, if they just exercised their various available capacities and resources towards that end (e.g. Hos 4:6), it may very well be the case that all of these children and infants, who themselves may not have had yet acted out anything evil (Luke 12:45-48; see here) will justly be saved. (=EW 18.2's ‘innumerable company of (also martyred) little ones’.). In fact, it would have really been to preserve them in such a state of redeemable innocence, that God would also/mainly have allowed them to be put to death at that point. God also does this ‘premature ending of life’ with certain sincere adults in order to instead preserve their eternal life.
35. Christ taught non-resistance
The ‘greater forgiveness’ available in Acts 13:39 is pointedly in contrast to what the Law of Moses could not allow forgiveness for, but instead mandated capital punishment. (E.g. adultery, Sabbath breaking, etc) But that still does not mean that there isn’t an unpardonable/eternal sin (Mark 3:30), i.e., also in the New Covenant, and that was indeed the blasphemy, lie to/about, the Holy Spirit, which could indeed also bring about immediate capital punishment (from God Himself). (E.g. Acts 5:3-5, 9-10).
The very simplistic answer here is that there evidently was not a specifying of details in the separate Gospel accounts as to ‘who exactly saw how many angels’, but the visionary account from the SOP provides such distinguishing details:
So Rev 14:11 is actually stating that: ‘the smoke from prior accomplished tormentings will be continuing to waft into subsequent ages of tormentings (i.e. for more entrenched rebelling sinners)’...And so those smoke(s) will serve as the lasting testimony of that prior burning up righteous judgement by God. In fact, with people lasting in Hell’s fire in proportion to their inculcated guiltiness, the more smoke that will be produced and found afterwards, will testify to how guilty, and thus deserving of this confessions-exacting judgment these people/groups had indeed been.
