    To break any curse, pray the Psalm "The LORD is my light and my salvation" 40 times a day for 40 straight days (that's 1600 times in total).

    First vaccine shuts off your immune system; second vaccine gives you diseases; third vaccine puts your immune system back and it will start fighting the diseases and will cause death. Chipped vaccines = mark of the beast.

    Sakashvilli and his wife are the heads of human organ harvesting operation during war in Ukraine. They send organs of civilians and organs of soldiers to Israel and America. Someone is hit by car or bullet, then their organs are harvested and sent abroad.

    mRNA vaccine by Moderna contains *Luciferin* dissolved with *66.6* ml of distilled *phosphate* buffer solution.

    ...mark of the beast...that's what it is...

    all vaccines are chipped

    all vaccines have cells of aborted fetuses in them

    Police stop you at checkpoint to check if you’re chipped (aka vaccinated)

    Police check the car; let's say 4 people car but signal only from 3; so, police stop it to chip the notyetchipped; signal from 4 now and police let the car go. This is prophecy by saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov. Notice police chip (aka vaccinate) people at gun point in Africa; so, no more "it's not gonna happen here" 'cuz it will soon enough, capisce?

    Police do it on highways or when you leave your city... basically, you can't leave your city unless you're vaccinated; but vaccine = mark of the beast; so, escape now while your city doesn't have these rules; forgive me.

    Gov't sprays chemtrails so that people feel symptoms of flu

    5G will kill vaccinated; just read Georgia Guidestones' commandment of 500 million max population on earth; it fits with Orthodox Christian prophecy of 7 percent of people left

    Russian Orthodox prophecy also says that there will be unbearable stench in winter. So, there you go. Russian winters are cold. So, they must have died from the new disease that doesn't have a name 'cuz it's caused by 5G.

    martial law; Constitution was suspended; New World Order

    read Book of Revelation; Chapters 13 and 14, please

    chipped people will be influenced by super computers to receive World Passport (grey plastic card with no name on it), but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays

    If you escape mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to permanent heaven

    how to escape it? by hiding within a small group (10 - 15 people according to saints Gabriel Urgebadze and Seraphim of Sarov); no documents; no electronics

    Project Pogo = Alex Jones, QAnon, Adam Green, etc. videos are put out so that gov't tracks who watches them. (Project Zyphr annihilates people who watch these videos). Drone with scopolamine will drill a hole in your window at 4 am (when electricity for your region has been turned off). Once gassed, you will come out to the police van (waiting for you outside) yourself; you will be taken to underground camp to be tortured for adrenochrome. The rest of the people will be secretly (or even openly) chipped when they sign up for food in closed stores

    AI (artificial intelligence aka demons) will post on your social media as if it were you doing it while you're on vacation; it will even make phone calls on behalf of you; no one will notice that you're missing in action.

    Source(s): Blood/body of Jesus kills parasites. Orthodox Christian three hand signs are different than Buddhist mudras. Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell. Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). The last “legit” Patriarch was Patriarch Irenaios 1st (Skopelitis) of Jerusalem who blessed Catacomb movement a long time ago; what you need is antimins (remains of saints sewn into a towel), wax candles, one cup and one spoon. Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good; if abducted by them, pray the Jesus prayer; forgive me.

    Grendel was a Mermaid, the same as his Father.

    Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton (made into the movie The 13th Warrior) was about Grendel.  His book implied Grendel was a Neanderthal.  The book was way more interesting than the movie.

    Far as I know, he was the green dragon who guarded the yellow castle in Adventure.

    It was 1980, Atari ruled the home video game world, and the game's main character was a simple square on the screen.  It was super-advanced for its time.

    Grendel, the slowest of the three dragons, could be killed with a magic sword that looked like this ---> and only pointed in one direction.  Not one direction at a time, just one direction.  But you couldn't get too cocky with the sword when you had it, because the magic bat could fly in and steal your sword at any time.

    Part of the debate revolves around what is known, namely the descent from the biblical Cain (who was the first murderer, according to the Abrahamic religions). For some scholars, this descent links Grendel to the monsters and giants of the Cain tradition. A millennia-old explanation for Cain being capable of murder is that he may have been the offspring of a fallen angel or Satan himself, rather than being from Adam.

    Grendel was the son of his mother presumably by some father, but the ancient Skaldic poem in Old English doesn't say anything about his father.  We DO know a very little about Grendel's mother.  

    She's only described by three words in Old English, and we don't know what two of them meant, exactly.  The first is "modor", which is clearly "mother".  Of the other two, one seems to be connected (sorta) to the sort of creatures that the Norse called the "Valkyrie" (or "Valor-choosers", if you will) who picked which of those killed in battle would accompany them back to Valhalla.  They were spirit beings that fulfilled a vital role, directly at Odin's behest.

    The second one seems to be a noun that is used to describe, well...super-bad-asses.  (Like that one guy in the biker gang who can beat, and has beaten, twenty other bikers all by himself, and at the same time!)  It seems to imply a strength and skill more than human, and also a ferocity or murderous hostility barely harnessed.  This noun is used in the feminine form, to describe Grendel's mom.

    The poem also links Grendel (and by extension, his mother) to Cain, from the Torah.  It suggests that all evil creatures are descended from Cain and are heir to his curse - and describes these with words we would equate with "monsters", or "demons".  (By the 700s, when the skaldic poem was translated into Old English and first written down - so far as we know - the transcribers were Christian even though most Scandinavians weren't, yet.)

    So the dude's mother was a likely a spirit being and also a super-bad-***.  We have to presume that his mother's ferocity and murderous hostility were handed down to Grendel, along with the almost supernatural ability to handle a oneself in a scrap.  Did that make them monsters or demons?

    Demons are said to be pawns of Satan, used for the hurt of men's souls.  Clearly that's not what the poem is about, so we can rule that out.  What's a "monster"?  Well, upon seeing the aforementioned biker-brawler, we might whisper to our friend "Did you see that monster?"  And we might whisper the same if we saw Beowulf.  But that's not really what makes a monster.  

    A monster is harmful to people due to its nature - it eats them or tears them limb from limb or stomps them...but it's only doing what fear or hunger tell it to do.  And that's not what's going on in the poem, either.  Although Grendel might be said to be monstrous because he was reacting uncontrollably to Hrothgar's noisy celebrations, the poem goes out of its way to show cause-and-effect...not simply animal-like reflex.  And certainly his mother was acting as any lady of the day might - attempting to satisfy a blood debt against her son's killer - hardly a monster, there.  True, she did kill Hrothgar's good comrade, but maybe she mistook him for Beowulf rather than just slaughtered him without reason.  (Hrothgar is believed to a have been a real king in the 500s.) 

    So, not monsters.  Not demons.  She - a spirit-being.  He - seemingly of flesh, on his father's side.  His mother wouldn't have been overpowered by his father, but should could have been attracted, or she could have been covetous of something the father promised.  This would have been unlikely for a human, or elf, or dwarf, (almost certainly not a troll) but quite plausible for a jǫtunn.  Little is known for certain about them except they are/were potent beings who pre-date Odin.  It's possible that Grendel's fleshiness was the contribution of a jǫtunn father.  It's clear he didn't inherit his mother's ethereality, nor her judgment or moral sense - but then we don't know much about the jǫtunn, at all.

    Grendel is/was not a beast identifiable by any other word.
