when the unexpected occurs

From a previous discussion several days ago John saw a parchment rolled upon two cylinders and bound by seven seals. With an angel asking, “Who was worthy to loosen the seals so that the contents on the parchment could be read?” No one was found worthy. Not in heaven, or on the earth or under the earth. From Revelation 5:1-4.

It stressed John to tears sensing that the parchment contained important information that needed to be known and perhaps circulated. What can be done, oh! what can I do? Then remembering, “He will give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up with their hands. Lest you dash your foot against a stone. See Psalms 91:11-12 and Hebrews 13:2.

Also give serious investigative study, as to any applicability of Psalms 91:11-12 and Hebrews 13:2 to you. While at it, consider Hebrews 13:2.

Instantaneously one of the elders said to John, “Do not weep. Behold the Lion of tribe of Judah, the root of David, has prevailed to open the the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” See Rev 5:5.

In the midst of the throne, and surrounded by four living creatures along with some elders. Stood a Lamb as though it had been slain. Having seven horns, and seven eyes which were the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. See Revelation 5:6.  An exegeses concerning those seven horns and seven eyes was done recently. Along with one of their expeditions to earth. See discussion, “Strangers In Our Midst,” 21 June 2019.

Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. See Revelation 5:7. Now when He had taken the scroll, the 4 living creatures and the twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb. They had harps and golden bowls with incense used when praying for the saints. They sung a new song. “Singing worthy you are to take the scroll and to open its seals. FOR YOU WERE SLAIN AND HAVE REDEEMED US TO OUR GOD BY YOUR BLOOD. From every kindred, tongue, people and nation. And you have made us kings and priests to our God. And we shall reign on the earth.” See Revelation 5:8-10.

The above was meant to be a discussion about how the seemingly impossible can occur. And what follows below represents the benefits, when the improbable becomes probable. It should be taken literally that people once redeemed through His blood are special to God. And we, are likened, as kings and priests. He will it bring about at a future time. At a time, when we the redeemed will be clothed in our glorified bodies.

The emphasis with this discussion is upon the unexpected roll angels play in the affairs of we mortals. After all it was an angel, who asked is anyone to break the seven seals that secured the scroll. And then, one was found worthy. Most of the time without our awareness or permission. With the redeemed by Christ, just beginning a futuristic journey of power and authority. Combine the two thoughts of this paragraph with the following. “But Isaiah is very bold and says, “I was found by those who did not seek Me. I was made manifest to those who did not ask of Me.” See Romans 10:20 and Isaiah 65:1.

the court was seated authority fixed

Previously it was discovered that in the heavens there were seven spirits with very strange characteristics, who were Gods. Who had the authority to visit earth. So, at the appropriate time they made an exit to message Sarah. But those three Gods, also interacted with Abraham and with a God. Which also meant that God Himself would also periodically visit the planet He had created. Also previously, it was discovered that there was a hierarchy among the Gods. Meaning there was one Elohim and many lesser Gods.

Daniel gives us an additional view of His throne room. Apart from the one we looked at the other day. While Job provides us with an authoritative clairvoyant picture of Elohim’s ownership of all that is in the heavens or on earth. Establishing that no one is adequately up to the task of a successful revolt.

But for now this scene unfolds, “I watched till thrones were put in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire; a fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand time ten thousands stood before Him. THE COURT WAS SEATED and the books were opened. I watched because of the sound of the pompous horn who was speaking. (Who is that pompous horn? John told us in a previous discussion that that horn was one of the seven Spirits of God, who visited earth. See Revelation 5:6). I watched till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed and given to the burning flame. As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.” For Daniels experience see, Daniel 7:9-12.

That’s enough for that segment might deal with those beasts with a later discussion. Other than to say that they represent a rather frequent disturbance in the heavens. It’s not cozy resting place for the dearly departed by any stretch of the imagination.

Time to take a look at power and authority looks like. “Where were you, when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the MORNING STARS sang together, and all the SONS OF GOD shouted for joy? Or who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth from the womb? When I made the clouds, and the thick darkness of its swaddling band; when I fixed My limit for it with set bars and doors?” When I said, “This far as you may come, but no farther. And here your proud waves must stop! Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place; that it might take hold of the ends of the earth? See Job 38:4-13a.

expedition earth bound

Discussions about other God’s in the heavens which most know little about. With their function and interaction as lesser God’s has been occupying content of the last several discussions. Especially as they impact the biosphere of us earthlings. Fascinating it is! So picking up, where we left off yesterday with a sketch of one such expedition.

Minding his own business, as he sat at the door of his tent. Hoping to get some relief from the scouring heat of the day from the shading branches of the giant Terebinth tree. Trying to relax, he was sure that he saw God. A little dazed he looked up to the heavens. And when, he lowered his eyes three men were standing near by, as though they had been there all the time.

To materialize out of nowhere, he knew intuitively that they were not human despite their appearance as such. So he rushed from the door of his tent, and bowed himself down to the ground. And said, “My Lord, if I have found favor your sight, do not pass by your servant.” Not wanting to miss this opportunity to find favor with the gods, he rallied his wife to prepare dinner for them. And he, himself scurried to find suitable meat for dinner.

Two things are going on here of great significance to human history. They asked Abraham, “Where is your wife?” Getting a response they went on to say that his wife would give birth to a son. Sarah hearing this mocked them silently. But the rebuttal came from God himself, who asked of her, “Is anything to hard for the LORD?” Continuing He said, “At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and you Sarah shall have a son. To be named Isaac, see Genesis 17:19.

The renowned Jewish patriarch Abraham, and his, so called, sovereign God had their differences. You can read about those differences by referring to Genesis 17:17-18; 21:11. And because of Abraham’s belligerence, the covenant promises made to him would be materialized through the son that Sarah would birth. See Genesis 17:19. And of great significance to world history, God replied to his belligerent plea. See Genesis 21:11, telling Abraham that He would do the following, “Yet I will also make a nation of the son (Ishmael) of the bondwoman (Hagar) because he is your seed,” Genesis 21:13. Every time IS strikes, or some other Islamic acronym strikes, it’s because of the belligerence of Abraham and Sarah. Without their combined belligerence the world might have been spared the horrors of Islam. An evil greater that Nazism!

strangers in our midst

Maybe hoping to sleep in after yesterdays shocking encounters, he was awakened to see his Christ. Standing in his presence holding a parchment rolled around two cylinders and gripping it with His right hand. It was securely sealed with seven seals. Out of nowhere, so it seemed, an angel appeared. The angle looked rather invincible, but for some reason it seemed alarmed.

Proclaiming loudly, “Who is worthy to open the parchment and loose its seals?” And no one in heaven, or on the earth was able open the parchment and look at it. But what caught John’s attention, and it made him quiver was the announcement that no on one under the earth was found worthy either. Reflecting about his strange experiences yesterday, he shook with fear, as he reflected, “life under the earth?”

John was somewhat grieved because he sensed that that parchment must contain important stuff worth knowing about. But he was told, don’t worry, “Someone from the ancestry of David, will be able to open the parchment and to loosen its seven seals.”

Then he noticed that in the middle of the throne room where those strange looking creatures were. Which included the elders stood a lamb, as though it had been butchered. Musing to himself again, this place is truly weird.

This time that butchered lamb had seven horns and seven eyes. Representing seven individual spirits destined to invade earth. Figuring out from past experiences, but with an additional twist. That the invaders would be strong and extremely insightful. Able to move freely without being detected or deterred by human ingenuity for what they really were as gods.

With the exception that when they needed to interact with earthling’s they could do so by transformation to human semblance. Many are convinced that such entities have visited our biosphere at will. Earthlings having observed strangeness in the skies having coined that genre of the supernatural as flying saucers. But once embodied here, they do their task. Making sense for this statement. “Do not forget to entertain strangers for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.” Source materials for this dialogue. Revelation 5:1-7 and Hebrews 13:2.

Same trend for tomorrow showing specific assignments for the strangers in our midst.

freakish things about a place called heaven

When most think of heaven, they don’t think of a place of boisterous raucous combustion. Which seem to be adequate description of that place called heaven. So lets take a peek into God’s throne room and see what’s there.

Said a guy named John, I looked up, and behold! I saw an opened door to the heavens. A little startled I was because I often look to the heavens and marvel at there changing beauty. And wondered what’s up there, and what secrets do they hide. Never did I ever see a path way of entrance beyond my sight. It was very different today. Suddenly a thunderous voice roared. COME UP HERE! And I will show you things which have, or will take place.

So up I went, but not as my usual self. It was a very different experience maybe because of being oxygen deprived, or by the speed that I was being propelled. Or who knows, perhaps it was all illusionary on my part. With heaven coming down to meet me, and to suck me into its midst.

When I finally regained my equilibrium, I saw a throne with someone sitting on it. If it was God. Yes I’m sure it was Him. It was the God I served before I was exiled to a place of island seclusion. Because I was always talking about Him in ways the that upset the religious, and political authorities.

His appearance was one of incomprehensible human understanding. Best characterized by the solidness of the jasper and sardius stones. Stones of beauty not easily penetrable designed to endure. Then there was this magnificent rainbow engulfing His throne. It too had the beauty and strength of a stone. And because it was green in color, perhaps it also represented constant newness and purity. All of it signifying ever lasting durability.

There I stood flabbergasted because of seeing twenty four people also sitting on thrones. They were dressed in white robes and wore golden crowns on their heads. And from their thrones came flashing bolts of lightning, followed by roaring thunder claps. Including unidentifiable voices.

More bizarre were the seven lamps of fire burning before the throne that God sat on. Were those seven lamps of fire really His seven Spirits? What is this I mused? One God having seven Spirits within Him? Eventually concluding that the seven lamps of fire represented seven spirits of different gods. Which is, more consistent with other contextual recordings. Like this historical declaration, “God stands in the congregation of the mighty; He judges among the gods.”

I thought, am I having a frankkenstein experience? Because then. I noticed before His throne there appeared a substance like clear glass. There around His throne were four living creatures. The strangest sight that I’ve ever seen. They had eyes not just on their faces but also on the back of their heads. Only one had a face of a human. The other three looked like a lion, calf and eagle.

Even more bizarre each creature had six wings, and were full of eyes around and within. Astonishing as it might sound they did not rest by day or night. What was there purpose? Were they a protective security force to safe guard heaven and its ultimate authority? Announcing to any nefarious entities the following 24/7. “Holy, holy, holly, Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”

How much of this can I endure, John must have pondered. For this day it’s almost over. With John observing the following. Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him, who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever. The twenty four elders fall down before Him, who sits on the throne and they worship Him who lives forever and ever, and casting their crowns before the throne saying, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor. For you, created all things!”

For the curious see, Revelation 4:1-11; Revelation 1:9; Psalms 82:1.

the throne room

The throne room of the heavens is much different than most imagine. Consider this, “GOD stands in the congregation of the mighty; He judges among the gods.” And there someone had the audacity to ask, “How long will you judge unjustly? And show partiality to the wicked?” Signed Selah. See Psalms 82:1-2. Selah seems to have different meanings. Prevailing thoughts are, silence; pause or end.

And the tirade, continues with merit, many would agree. And the god’s in unison declare. “Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked. They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are unstable. See Psalms 82:3-5.

A declaration from the unknown and pleading for a response! “You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.” Arise O God, judge the earth; for You shall inherit all nations. See Psalms 82:6-8.

It appears that the throne room of God has an entourage of divine entities, who came to life not by the means of human copulation. They seem to serve as God’s advisers and councilors. But they like you, and me, are subject to death. Stature doesn’t matter because like princes all die.

Such an entourage could well be considered something like a earthly governing body. But without legislative authority which Jehovah keeps for Himself, as acknowledged in Isaiah 42:8, where we find this recorded. “I am Jehovah, that is my name. And My glory I will not give to another.”

Seems like there is a lot going on through out the heavens. Which we’ll see with future discussions impacts us earthlings. So stay tuned and we’ll see where this journey takes us. As we unmask the worlds of the unusual.

More tomorrow about the worlds of the unusual.

a cockamamy idea

Life has its complexities, but the most complex seems to be the uncertainty about death. But, the reality about death is that the uncertainty can be removed. With an answer to the question is there an existence after death? But to appreciate the answer, one really has to set aside all conceived prejudices. And with certainty the untruthful teachings of most clergy irregardless of their many stripes. Meaning affiliations by sect identification. They teach untruthful concepts about about the afterlife. Perhaps because people in mourning don’t want to hear that their deadly departed are in a state other than pure Nirvana.

What scriptures teach about death, and the after life from the grave. Is very different from what is often believed. Many believe that once a person dies they immediately are sent to heaven or to hell. However the concept of eternal damnation is for a later discussion. Other than to say it doesn’t exist, except for a few.

Here is what the scriptures teach. Once a person dies, they go to their graves. And their spirits return to God, who gave it. Some may wonder from whence did such a cockamamy idea come from. Surprise! From the Bible where this is recorded, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and he became a living being.” See Genesis 2:7.

Followed by, “Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher scattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.

“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, “All is vanities.” And moreover, because the Preacher was wise, he taught the people knowledge; yes, he pondered, and sought out, and set it in order, as many proverbs. The Preacher sought to find acceptable words; and what was written was upright. Words of truth. The words of the wise are like goads, and the words of scholars are like well driven nails, given by one Shepherd.

And furthermore, my creation, be admonished by this. The making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God, and keep His commandments, for this is humanities all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” See Ecclesiastes 12:6-14.

The Preacher here is God Almighty picturing Himself as the caring Shepherd. As opposed to the wise, who at their best are nothing more than goads. Goads meaning word users for comfort or hurt which provides no relief. While the Shepherding Preacher’s wise proverbs represent words of truth like well driven nails that are able to anchor the foundations of human yearnings.

Driving one back to remembering one’s Creator picturesquely by saying that life is like a silver cord loosened by death. With the holders of golden bowls, as being the strong and able, or the weak and feeble. All of His creation will someday be broken by death. Irregardless of age or circumstances all will be shattered at the fountain of death. No matter how long one journeys, or accomplishes, the wheel will die at the well. On this plane life will end irregardless of the substances that have propelled us. So in the end, we all have one thing in common. We are but dust. See Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

But there is a tomorrow of reckoning somewhere in the beyond. And that is underscored with these words. For God will bring every work into judgment. Including every secret thing whether good or evil. See Ecclesiastes 12:14.

thinking can be dangerous

Hagar frightened! Took off to the hither lands. But her trip was interrupted, as she heard a voice, which said, “Because of you, a great, and powerful people will emerge. Your descendants will multiply exponentially, so that they can’t be counted.” From those words would emerge the Muslim world.

The conversation continued with the voice informing her about something she already knew. “You’re pregnant!” What she didn’t know was the baby’s gender. “It’ll be a boy and you’ll name him Ishmael.” Ishmael is considered the father of the Arab/Muslim world.

According to the voice all this was occurring because her sorrow was understood. She became a forced surrogate for Sarai and Abram. Both were aging, and were unable through their many acts of copulation to produce an heir.

Such a misfortune was of great concern to Sarai. Because both were told separately that greatness was to be their destiny. He was to be the father of many nations. And through, him the world would unite and prosper. She on the other hand would be the mother of those nations. Kings, Queens, Prime Ministers and Presidents they would have influence and power. Because of a son, she would give birth to at the age of ninety. And, to be named Isaac. She didn’t believe it, nor did her husband.

How how was this to occur, she must have wondered. Ah-leave it to human ingenuity. Sarai marveled at her own cleverness. Concluding, I’ll arrange for our maid Hagar to copulate with my husband. It worked! Now she, and her husband had a male heir. And their esteemed place in history, now had a future.

Abraham was a happy man. He had a male heir. His dynasty would live on through his son Ishmael. But, two unexpected incidences pop up. Conflicts erupted between Hagar and Sarai. So she complained to her husband, who said, do with her as you please. And she did, to the extent, that Hagar took what provisions Abram gave her, and fled with her son.

Much to his displeasure, he was informed that Ishmael was not be his heir. And that Sarah would give birth to a son to be named Isaac, and he would be his heir. Abraham thought what nonsense is this! I’m 100 years old, and Sarah is ninety. Bingo! There goes Abraham’s dynasty and Sarah’s motherhood of those many promised nations. Because it was divinely decided that Isaac would replace Abraham and Sarah, as God’s progenitor of all promises made to them.

Then Arina came to his side and pressing her gray hair head to his, said, “It can’t be helped, Vasya. A son is liked a lopped off branch. As a falcon, he comes, when he wills and goes when he lists, but you, and I are like mushrooms growing in a hollow tree. Here we sit side by side without budging. But I shall stay with you for ever, and unalterably, just as you will stay with me.”

Vassily Ivanich removed his hands from his face and embraced his wife, his constant companion, with a warmth greater than he had ever shown her in his youth; she had consoled him in his grief.

Source: Fathers and Sons, Ivan Turgenev, p. 141.

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the LORD.” See Proverbs 18:22.

“Honor your father and mother which is the first commandment with promise. That it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth. And fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training of the Lord.” See Ephesians 6:2-4.

b careful of what u say cas it might haunt u

Then Sarah said, get rid of Muslims. because Ishmael will not be heir with my son Isaac. See Genesis 21:10. Then God chimed in, and what He said, slammed the door on Ishmael the father of Islam, as being Abraham’s heir. See Genesis 21:11-12.

God told Abraham that through him a great nation would come into existence. And because of that occurrence, he would have global name recognition. Giving him a respectable status globally. With the people of the world community being either prosperous or poverty stricken. It all depended on how they responded to his elevated stature. See Genesis 12:2-3. Later God told Abraham that the lands making up this new nation of Israel would be passed on this descendants. See Genesis 12:7.

We are told that Abraham was seventy years old when he was informed of his good fortune. See Genesis 12:4. Before his descendants could inherit his good fortune, He’d need a male heir. His wife understanding the significance of their childless dilemma. Used her own ingenuity to solve their childless dilemma.

So lets eavesdrop on another conversation between God and Abraham. Abraham was informed by God that his wife would now be known as Sarah. Why the name change, we don’t know with certainty, so we are left to speculate. It may be symbolic representing a second chance to make things right. Sarai was the woman who encouraged her husband Abraham to copulate with their maid, Hagar. Which resulted in a pregnancy, and the birth of Ishmael who wasn’t the child God promise him.

The conversation between God and Abraham went this way, “I will bless her and give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be the mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.” Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed. And said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety bear a child?’ See Genesis 17:16-17.

Then Abraham in his arrogance said to God. “Oh, that Ishmael may live before you!” See Genesis 17:18. And God replied, “NO!” “Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac. I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him.” See Genesis 17:19.

All those covenant promised made to Abraham were shifted to Isaac. In other words Abraham was shelved because of His constant belligerents. That should be a lesson well learned not only with our relationship with Jesus but with others. Because what we say in our hearts or verbally could hurts us.

Here are the consequences for Abraham’s arrogance and belligerents. “As far as Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.” See Genesis 17:20.

And those princes, the descendants of Ishmael, to Muhammad the revered prophet of all Muslims feel they have been cheated. Because Abraham wanted Ishmael to be his rightful heir. And world chaos seen through Islamic terror represents their determinations to correct a wrong. It’s the reason why Arab/Muslim states are determined to destroy Israel. To most in the Arab/Muslim world, Israel stole their birthright.

a world gone amuck

Signaling a world that has become wildly uncontrollable, and thus unimaginable that normality will ever return. More, and more people are being overcome with anxiety that their personal futures are at risk. To the extent that its caught the attention of world governments. Their explanations are flawed and the world citizenry knows it. So, how did all that ever occur? Especially when things from the beginning were so perfect. There is an explanation that unravels that mystery but it’s pretty much rejected because it’s biblical.

So if you’re a little bit curious, hang around. Cas you’ll learn that the biblical explanation isn’t flawed. And you’ll be the owner of some valuable information, as to why things are, as they are.

The great Israeli patriarch couldn’t keep his zipper zipped. And allowed an Egyptian maid servant to be brought to him by his wife, Sarai. Hoping that she would bear a son which she did. Pleasing Abram or Abraham because now he had a male heir to inherit the vast kingdom God had promised and had given  him. Because, God had destined Abraham to become the father of many nations. Now he had a son, who was named Ishmael. And his inheritance, was now preserved and would be expanded.

It was a predetermined name according to one of God’s angels or by God Himself. For it’s recorded, then the Angel of the LORD said to her, “Behold you are with child, and you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael. Because the LORD has heard your affliction.” See Genesis 16:11.

The woman involved here was Hagar, the mother of the Arab/Muslim people. Apparently, Hagar complained to God because she was treated like a whore. And later was ill treated by Abram and Sarai. See Genesis 16:6.

There are consequences for behaviors offensive to God. Something all know intrinsically with certainty but the human psyche often thinks otherwise. And most often with regrets, for there is no way to turn back the clock.

Here are some things we know about Abram’s bedroom folly. Hagar fled! And this question was asked of her, “Where have you come from, and where are you going?” Hagar answered, “I’m fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.” See Genesis 16:8.

The directive. “Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand. God’s promise to the Arab/Muslim world through Hagar their mother. “I will multiply your descendants exceedingly, so that they shall not be counted for the multitude.” See Genesis 16:10.

There are other factors to be factored in when it comes to understanding global insecurities. But the triangular affair between Abram, Sarai and Hagar was, and is, a major factor for understanding a world gone amuck.

It’s all about global preeminence and thus dominance. A holding owned by the United States since the end of World War One which was brought about by the presidency of Woodrow Wilson.

Now there is a new player on the block much stronger than ever in its history. Who don’t give a hoot about the supremacy of the United States. Who say that they have the credentials through Allah to Ishmael to bring about a reversal of a world gone amuck.

All the other stuff going on in the world is peripheral to the thesis of this discussion.

why isis will not be defeated unless

Whether it’s rhetoric from, President Donald Trump, or from one of his surrogates, such as, United States Secretary of State,  to, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. ISIS will not be defeated!

Though ISSI made an Islamic declaration establishing statehood for Muslims. Intended to rally Muslims to come home, and join the fight to capture the world for Allah. It would be done through the leadership of their long anticipated Caliph.

How could the west counter a sacred Islamic prophecy of a Caliph. The west couldn’t without alienating millions of Muslims. People, they think, they need in the fight against ISSI. That represents shortsightedness because it’s counter to what devout Muslims believe and want. Muslims want world peace as much as anyone. But it must come in accordance with Islamic teachings. So those millions of Muslims will wait for the right time, and respond to the person, whom they perceive as the true Caliph.

So the west, not wanting to offend Muslims used a substitute expression for the announced Caliph. Because the United Nations, nor any of its surrogates states wanted to indict Islam or insult an Islamic prophetic figure. So they accepted the ISSI characterization of itself as jihadist because its less offensive. And it fails to characterize Muslims as a whole for what they are, jihadists. Who want to see the community of nations ruled by a Caliph, who will govern the world by employing Islamic laws and tenets.

It’s not the the west doesn’t know that, they do! But they see it as an unmanageable problem, so they prefer to manage Islamic terror, as opposed to telling of the truth.

Muslim terror isn’t new its been with the community of nations for centuries. The apostle Paul saw the following as a perfect remedy. “Nevertheless what does the scripture say? Cast out the bondwoman, (Hagar mother of Ishmael) and her son, (Ishmael the father of Islam) for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman.” See Galatians 4:30. (Sarah the wife of the Jewish patriarch Abraham, who would give birth to Isaac. That lineage continues to the birth of Jesus. And from Jesus, that lineage continues today. But it’s conditional today, based upon a spiritual rebirth. Adequately described in Romans 10:9-13. It’s the story of Resurrection Sunday or what most of the American society calls Easter.

Everything in parentheses represents exegesis by this writer.

What is to follow in the days to come will be discussions, as to why the apostle advised the churches at Galatia to get rid of Muslims but they failed to do so. Nevertheless, his rational lives today, and this padre suspects with the same results. There is only one remedy for getting rid of our Muslim population. Thus giving America a chance of survival as a republic under God. It’s called prayer. Massive prayer meeting by the populace. With the populace, and the government both begging God for forgiveness and mercy. With divine directives for keeping Muslims checkmated.

What is to follow is taken out of context. But it’s picturesque of what is needed as a remedy. Indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying, “For He is good, for His mercy endures forever.” Suddenly, all activity ceased because of a great cloud that covered the nation; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God or America.

Make it happen O Lord through your Lampstands in which you stand in their midst. Having dispersed your angels was warriors and protectors of a repentant United States of America. See 2 Chronicles 5:13-14; Revelation 1:13;20

b careful what you wish 4 cas it might hurt

Now Abram has that long desired male heir in Ishmael. Thinking that his vast empire was now securely preserved. It was, but not as Abram envisioned.

Name changes for Abram and Sarai to Abraham and Sarah perhaps signaling new beginnings or sorrowful endings. In the end, we’ll see that its a combination of both.

We find Abraham being quite content with the way things were. So lets eavesdrop on conversations that hurt Abraham, you, me, and the worlds community of people to this very day. Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael may live before You! And God replied, “As for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.” See Genesis 17:18-20. Those twelve princes would become nations, who all pledge allegiance to Ishmael through Allah and Muhammad his prophet.

It’s pure ignorance for President Trump, and his surrogates to think that they’ll destroy ISSI. Yes, they might defeat the acronym. But another acronym will appear to torture the Trumps of the world. Islamic terror is a global phenomena that is here to stay. And to make things worse, for the Trumps of the world it’ll intensify.

The only remedy is for nations that have links to our Judeo Christian roots. Those nations, who have roots to Great Britain, and her Commonwealth of Nations. Through Isaac, to Joseph, to Ephraim the father of Great Britain. And including the United States, whose birthright is hedged through Manasseh, Joseph’s oldest son. And who is the unifying factor, other than God Himself. None other than one of the smallest nations in the world. With military apparatuses kept secret, but able to keep in tact what God preordained. The nation state of Israel!

Now the hard work. Muslims must be encouraged to exit all the above countries. Muslim military fortresses, called Mosques must be eliminated. Governments must create laws in order to expedite the aforementioned. It’ll not happen, unless Christians unite, and persuade the government to honor what God has provided for our Judeo Christian communities. But it’s problematic because most of Christendom is in a state of apostasy. If it is to happen, it’ll take a major global revival among nations with a heritage of our Judeo Christian values.

The battle lines have been established by the aforementioned paragraph and what is to follow.

The Muslim mind set is in complete opposition to everything that is Jewish and Christian. They are determined to be the people of promise. The scriptures teach that they are the people of the flesh. Note: Therefore she (Sarah) said to Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman (Hagar) and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.” And the matter was very displeasing in Abraham’s sight because of his son. But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.” See Genesis 21:10-12; Galatians 4:22-31.

So don’t expect Muslims to acquiesce because they will not. It’ll be a fight to the death of one ideology or the other or maybe both.

It all happened because of Abraham’s ill fated romp in the sack with Hagar, the mother of Ishmael and the father of Islam. He wished for an heir, and he got what he wished for. But it surely hurt with that hurt reaching us today.

omens to live by

A man, who was intending to buy an ass took one on trial and placed it along with his own asses at the manger. It turned its back on all of them save one, the laziest and greediest of the lot; it stood close beside this one and just did nothing. So the man put a halter on it, and took it back to its owner, who asked if he thought that was giving it a fair trial? “I don’t want any further trials,” he answered. “I am quite sure it is like the one it singled out as a companion.”

A man’s character is judged by that of the friends whose society he takes pleasure in. (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“Birds of a Feather.”)

A fable that allows its readers to open a window for many probable scenarios. Some personal, and others not so personal with the not so personal being the thesis for this discussion and the most scary.

To lay a foundation here is a thought or two from Jesus. “Beware of false prophets, (Islam’s Muhammad and hooligans) who come to in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Muslims are committed to change the world by any means possible for Allah and his prophet Muhammad). You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth bad fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (The ultimate end for Islam and their hooligans). But along the journey to the fire, they’ll continue to wreak global havoc. Because, so few are willing to help them find their way to the fires. By their fruits you, shall know them. Everything about Islam is in opposition to the fruits of our Judeo Christian heritage. Which turned the United States into a cultural, economic and military power house. Fast fading because the mood in America is to see Muslims for what they are not. A people, who want live and let live. Also, see Matthew 7:15-20.

The poor devils can’t help themselves because what they do, they do because they want to be something that they can’t be. It’s frustrating for Muslims because they have the desire to be a people of promise. God’s people helping people to heal humanities sinful wounds.

It all happened because Abram had an extra marital affair with Hagar his families maid. The affair was instigated by Sarai, his wife. Sarai at age 90, was well beyond her child bearing ability. And she feared, that her husband wouldn’t have a male heir to inherit the  vast properties he owned. And from that one night fling, a child was born. His name, Ishmael, who grew and lived in the wilderness. With a secret known only to his mother. Because she was told that her son would become a great nation. There he horned his skills as an archer. And as an adult, he would use his strength, and warrior abilities to torture the known world with unrelenting brutality. Which has been passed on from one generation to the next. And in our 21st century, it’s our nightmare.

Aesop said, “A man’s character is judged by that of his friends whose society he takes pleasure in.”

Hewing Muslims, how it’s done. Through provocative dialogues found through the Contact Us link on my Home page. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather.

muslims genetic code predisposes them to a life of violence

After the hit upon Sonny, in the movie the Godfather. The Don recuperating from an assassination attempt upon his own life. Arranges a meeting with the five crime families of New York and New Jersey. And presents this question, how did things ever get so bad?

Many probably hear that same question in regards to world events. So, then how did things in this world ever get so bad? The answer, the tribes of the Ishmaelites, whose lineage occurred through Ishmael, the father of the Muslim people.

Here is a short survey of Islam, as the problem plaguing the world community. Hagar bore Abram a son. Abram called his son’s name whom Hagar bore, Ishmael, Genesis 16:15. Hagar, an Egyptian was not Abram’s wife. She was the maid servant to Sarai, Abram’s wife.

Because Sarai bore Abram no children, she encouraged a sexual relationship between her husband and her maid servant. Which had its expected results, dissatisfaction.

Sarai frightened Hagar, so she fled. But an angel for God was dispatched. Finding her, and said, Hagar, I will multiply your seed exceedingly, and it shall not be numbered because of their exponential birth rate, Genesis 16:10. Ring a bell?

Also telling her that she would bear a son, and that she should name him Ishmael. According to the angel all this was occurring because the LORD understood her afflictions as an unwanted surrogate living with Sarai and Abram. Despite that, maybe Hagar could conjure some happy thoughts because motherhood would bring her joy and satisfaction. If so the following must have been shocking to Hagar. As she was told, “He shall be a wild man. His hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. He shall dwell in the presence of his brethren,” Genesis 16:12. Not what a mother wants to hear about her firstborn. Nor our modern world, but despite that, it’s on display globally.

The account of Genesis sixteen is expanded upon in chapter twenty one. Hagar became very distraught, and she abandoned her baby. Hoping that the child would die. Genesis 21:15-16.

But God heard the voice of Ishmael, and dispatched His angel, again. Who told Hagar not to fear because God heard the the baby’s voice. She was instructed to become a mother to Ishmael. With this promise that Ishmael would become a great nation, Genesis 17:20.

God, and Abraham were talking about an heir for him. Remember Abraham was a vast property owner and wanted a male heir. It seems that Abraham wanted Ishmael to be that heir. Because he said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You,” Genesis 17:18. To get a clearer understanding, you should read the preceding verses starting with verse 15.

God said, to Abraham, “I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation,” Genesis 17:20.

A world changer that would forever effect the equilibrium of world politics forever. Despite the globalist attempts to keep the equilibrium balanced. And Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before You,” Genesis 17:18. Then God said, “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him,” Genesis 17:19. Our lineage is as follows, Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, David to Jesus Christ.

God was with Ishmael, Genesis 21:19, providing him with water after the water was spent. Providing Ishmael with shelter in the wilderness where he became strong and able, Genesis 21:20.

So God was with the lad and he grew and dwelt in the wilderness, and became a great archer. He dwelt in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt, Genesis 21:21.

Ishmael lived a very long time. He was the father of twelve sons, Genesis 25:12-18. The sons of Ishmael became the founders of the Ishmaelite tribes that spread from Africa to modern day Iraq. Many modern day Arab’s trace their lineage to Ishmael.

In summary, we have the birth of a child destined to become a “wild man.” See Genesis 16:12. That wild man from his lineage, has, is and will continue to plot the mayhem and murder which is plaguing the global community. With the entire civilized world creating systems of varied levels of heightened alerts. Today it’s the expected, rather then the unexpected, wherever a Muslim is seen. And so, is the aftermath of their violence experienced somewhere everyday.

What state or people can be called legitimate, who call for the annihilation of Israel, and the Jews around the world. As is the case for all people, who refuse to bow, and say there is no god but Allah. None, except those who trace their linage to Ishmael, the wild man. As he, propels his legacy of mayhem and murder.

Islam does not have a history of co-existence among themselves or their Islamic neighbors. Muslim ‘craziness’ keeps erupting again and again in Islamic countries where they are the majority. Surely, this can only be characterized as the behavior of crazy men. Why don’t Muslims just go to the ballot box, and elect different candidates? They can’t because Islam doesn’t tolerate freedom of expression or assembly. Islam is a totalitarian system of governance worse than Nazism.

People in the 21 century do not behave in such a manner. Unless they are barbaric and helpless because of their genetic code. Which is the case with Muslims wherever they exist.

True to the angel’s announcement in Genesis 16:10. I will multiply your seed exceedingly. It shall not be numbered because of your exponential birth rate. Muslims have been multiplying their birth rates at a phenomenal pace. With some bragging that if we can’t win the world for Islam on the battle field. Then we’ll do it in the bedroom wherever we live. Which gives the civilized world community, little hope for peace, and stability.

It’s not that Judaism or Christianity are blameless through out history. But this can be said of both religions. We are not about annihilating Muslim in our respective countries. Nor are Muslims where ever they are found in danger of death. By predetermined annihilation because of they refusal to convert to Judaism or Christianity.

When one looks around the globe, and sees heightened security alerts. Knowing they exist because Muslims are determined to attack anyone, who asserts that there is any god but Allah. That must be the religious ideology of crazy men.

Allowing the angle of God to correctly have seen the end result of the birth of Ishmael. A child, who would become an adult. Who would set his hand against everyone, and with every man’s hand against Ishmael and Islam forever.

But why would God, allow such a cruel occurrence to take place? If God, is really in charge of world events, as is the general belief. Short answer, for every action there is a just and equal reaction. Because Abraham, in his own way attempted to assassinate God. And from the next discussion, you’ll understand how things have gotten so bad.

Need a cure swallow this

Lets take a journey into the book of Revelation. A book filled with symbols and drama requiring a back and forth knowledge of both the Old and New Testaments. Even with that some of the symbols are open to speculation. Take for example the imagery of the slain Lamb. Referring to Jesus Christ, who was murdered in order to redeem us by His split blood, Revelation 5:9. Also note the explicit acknowledgment, that the gospel of Jesus Christ has universal implications.

Then note the imagery of the Lamb having seven horns and seven eyes, Revelation 5:6-7. This suggest that the slain Lamb is of superior power with nothing escaping His understanding. Perfect in power, knowledge and insight. The Bright Morning Star of Revelation 22:16, who is able to light the way. With healing in his wings connected with Malachi 4:2 with its implicit and necessary tie to Matthew 1:21.

For that is the essences of our Judeo/Christian heritage. You shall call His name Jesus for he shall save His people from their sins. It has been said by world policy makers at various stages of history. That we are involved in a struggle over ideas. And that those, whose ideas prevail will shape human destiny. Such utterances are usually presented as secular arguments. Which is why the world is in such a mess. Yes! All of history has been a struggle for the souls of humanity. Fighting and dying over whose ideas that will shape and determine human destiny. It should, and must be our Judeo/Christian ideas that must prevail. If America, and the world community is to return to a peaceful and then prosperous future. Because, such ideas are of a supernatural origin. Now for the biblical foundation to support such propositions.

Revelation 5:4-5, finds John weeping because no one was found worthy to open and read the book, or to even look at the book. But John was told not to weep because one was found worthy. The one worthy was the “Lion of the tribe of Judah,” the “Root of David.” Which is an explicit reference to the greatest mysteries in the Bible, unexplainable by human logic. Here we are presented with the duality of Jesus Christ. His human ancestry is with the nation of Judah or modern Israel. With his divine nature occurring through the “Root of David.” Which establishes His credentials as being fully human, while at the same time being God.

This mystery has begged for a logical explanation of how this could be possible. There is no human explanation but there is a biblical one. It is found in Revelation 19:11-12, where the Faithful and True, who in righteousness judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire. On His head were many crowns. A name was written that no man knew, but He Himself. Verse 13, “And his name was called the Word of God.” The duality of his humanity and divinity come from verse 12, a mystery known only to Jesus Christ. Suffice for our knowledge is that He is the “Word of God.” But as the book of Revelation closes, Jesus highlights His divinity and humanity. “I, Jesus, have sent to you My angel to testify unto you these things in the churches, I am the root and the offspring of David…,” Revelation 22:16.

That is where we get our Judea/Christian heritage from. His humanness through the tribe or nation of Judah. His divinity, and humanity where Christ himself declares himself to be the offspring of David. A mystery kept secret known only to the slain Lamb.

America, and the world is faced with varied, and complex mixtures of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as forces under God. These religions, and not the United States, or some other world body like the United Nations will determine the worlds future. Islam is the enemy of Judaism and Christianity. Because Islam stands in opposition to every thing Jewish and Christian! And because of their hatred of the Jews and Christians, they represent the most eminent threat of the 21 century to global civility and economic security. Muslims are responsible for the currant global insecurity which will grow like an incurable cancer. Unless the world community, specifically the United States, wakes up to save itself from this barbaric menace.

If there is to be cure, it must come from the Lion of the tribe of Judah, who must rise to devour Islam. Whose king is David and whose divinity is of the root of David. Reaching to Christendom through Jesus. Uniting Jew, and Christian in the humanness associated with the tribe of Judah. And supernaturally through David to Christ.

futility of being human

In disquieting thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, fear came upon me, and trembling. Which made all my bones shake. Then a spirit passed before my face; the hairs on my body stood up.

It stood still, but I could not discern its appearance. A form was before my eyes; there was silence; then I heard a voice saying, “Can a mortal be more righteous than God? Can a person be more pure than his maker? If he puts no trust in His servants, if He charges His angels with error. How much more those who dwell in houses of clay. Whose foundation is in the dust, who are crushed before a moth? They are broken in pieces from morning till evening. They perish forever, with no one regarding. Does not their own excellence go away? They die, even without wisdom.” See Job 4:13-21.

perilous times

The nations military during these perilous times is on constant high alert to protect the homeland from foreign invaders. Quickly coming to mind some might wonder, if North Korea might carry out its threat to missile attack the United States with or without nuclear warheads. Should that occur, North Korea would be obliterated from the world map.

As problematic as that scenario is, it’s minor compared to threats posed by China and Russia to American homeland security. Because, they have weapons that makes conventional warfare almost obsolete. All based around the jargon of AI or artificial intelligence. Giving such nations the ability to electronically pulsate America to its death. AI allows the possessors to attack from outer space, on land or from the depth of the seas.

All of which doesn’t leave the United States immune from nuclear attacks. It’s just more messy which is what was learned when the United States nuked Japan.

Warfare has changed.

Allowing the United States to suffer a nuclear attack from within its continental borders. Launched by the warriors of Muhammad the children of Ishmael. Whom the Apostle Paul warned the early church to eliminate. Saying, “Nevertheless what does the scripture say? Cast out the bondwoman (Hagar mother of Islam) and her son, (Ishmael) for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.” See Galatians 4:30.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” George Santayana. Muslims are not the friends of any non-Muslims. Failure to understand that will have the consequences of Santayana’s condemnation.

What’s occurring on the world scene is a struggle between freedom and totalitarianism. Most understand that China, North Korea and China are totalitarianism regimes. As are all nations absent the influence of a Judeo-Christian foundation.

Contrary to popular understanding it’s not just the lack of knowledge about secular history that condemns us. It’s the growing unawareness of our Judeo-Christian history that will ultimately will condemn the United States.

It’s the struggle between the two sons of Abraham Ishmael and Isaac. Ishmael was Abraham’s first son. Abraham, and Sarah had hoped that Ishmael would become the male heir they desired. Abraham was so pleased with the birth of Ishmael that he declared before God, “Oh, that Ishmael may live before You.” But God responded, “No Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you will call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and his descendants after him.” See Genesis 17:18-19. And, our Christian ancestry is traced from Isaac through David to Jesus.

Paul refers to Ishmael as the son of the flesh and not the son of promise which was Isaac. Muslims refuse to accept that Ishmael isn’t God’s rightful heir for the establishing God’s sovereign rule through out the world.

This has been the historical record of Islam’s pursuit to be the people of promise. “Now we brethren, as Isaac was are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.” See Galatians 4:28-29. That’s why Paul encourages Christendom to exit Muslims from their communities. As the aforementioned scripture of, Galatians 4:30, so eloquently admonishes us to do.

D-Day:1944 v 2019 a different america

From the Mayflower Compact this how it has played out. After more than two months of treacherous travel across turbulent waters of the Atlantic Ocean, their bravery paid off. They knew why they fled Europe, and what they wanted for a future. Launching a Republic form of government which had the following as its foundation. Which was the creation of political awareness for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.

America has had many patriotic Americans. People whose deeds, and courage are forever indelibly written in the memory of the nation. Because in their own ways, and some of the time in most unconventional ways their deeds gave glory to God. Always advancing the edicts of our Christian faith, as found through out our biblical scriptures.

One such person was Patrick Henry, who while addressing the Virginia convention on, 23 March 1775 said, “The battle sir is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” America in all of its struggles, until modern times has always faced uphill struggles before becoming victorious.

The delineator’s of the nations Patrick Henry’s seemed to have had an innate awareness and belief in the following. “Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like Me. Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do My pleasure.'” See Isaiah 46:9-10. Such a verse gives credence to statements to Henry like statements through out American history.

Now fast forward for some excerpts from a twentieth century presidential prayer to a nation at war. Addressing a nation wide audience. “My Fellow Americans … And so, in this poignant hour I ask you to join me in prayer. Almighty God, our sons pride of the nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give them strength to their arms, stoutness to their faith.

They will need Thy Blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy, is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in continuance prayer. As we rise each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayers be on our lips, invoking Thy help in our efforts.

Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.”

President Franklin D. Roosevelt, June 6, 1944.

America has lost the fervor of those days. And is suffering the consequences, and they will intensify. For it is recorded, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” See Galatians 6:7. And in particular, the topics addressed yesterday.

america its changing face

Some hundred of years ago a group of people on a ship called, The Mayflower, voyaged upon a sixty-six day journey across the Atlantic Ocean. Eventually reaching the shores of what would become the The United States of America. With the sole intent of creating a lifestyle for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith. They did so because life in Europe, as Christians was becoming more and more insufferable. Because kings through out Europe saw themselves as the solemn authority over the affairs of humanity, and not God Almighty.

Suppose we could reverse history because life in America is becoming insufferable. Because the American federal legislature and its president see themselves, as the solemn authority over the affairs of humanity and not God. Hold on, and don’t bring down the rafters with laughter by saying that’s ridiculous. It’s that way already! Through collective legislative, presidential and judicial declarations bit by bit.

How else can one justify same sex marriages as the law of the land. That has now With judges conferring parental rights to homosexuals by designating one litigate as the husband or vice-versa depending upon the litigants standing before the judge. Not long, ago, such judges making such rulings would have been impeached. With the loss of their license to practice law. Today they are hailed as hero’s for their willingness to go were the country has never before dared to go.

The U.S. Department of Defense now allows their personal who declare themselves to be a gender that they are not to serve in the armed forces. Will such recognition advance or hinder the nations defensive readiness? The answer will unfold upon the pages of history.

Democrat, Misty Snow of Utah, who is credited as being the first openly transgender person to become a member of the, U.S House of Representatives, in 2016. Her candidacy failed. That didn’t deter her, as she made a bid for a Senate seat in 2018 which also failed. Such candidacies are eventually bound to succeed because they represent the changing face of America.

More, and more people are rallying behind the acceptance of homosexuality and transgender issues, as the progressive enlightenment among the American people.

And any notion, like that of our forefathers, who fled Europe because as Christians their lifestyle there had become intolerable. Banned together and vowed for the, “Creating of a lifestyle for the glory of God, and the advancement of the Christian faith.” If you are familiar with the Mayflower Compact, then you know that it was also their intention to create a republic form of government to mirror the aforementioned declaration. Today such declarations are seen as expressions of intolerance and thus irrelevant. With the worse yet to come, as the substance of such declarations are made to be illegal.
