What it means to fail

In America, few wonder, how many people think about God in a serious manner? Like does God really shape individual destines from birth to the grave? Answer:A handful, maybe. If more had, America would be a very different place.

From the cradle an infant’s bed mounted on rockers. Mom and Dad should sing to their child biblical nursery rhymes. Because that baby had just experienced his or her birthing experience, when God breathed the breath of life into that child. A truth God shared with us through his friends. The Psalmist said of God, “You send forth your Spirit, and they are created.” Text:Psalm 104:30. It first occurred in what was truly paradise And the LORD God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breath into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Text:Genesis:2:7.

That is the beginning place for spiritual growth because that new born had a supernatural experience with God Almighty. And is very aware, of his Creator. Allowing for those biblical nursery rhymes to nourish that new born spirit for the glory of his or her creator. Had it been done faithfully by enough parents; America would be very different today.

Concluding with this admonishment, remember now your creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the ears draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them.” Ecclesiastes 12:1a. From that think not so much the child’s physical journey to maturity but rather think that child’s spiritual journey to maturity. Today who really takes time to think about ones destiny that was God ordained from that cradle that brings us to where we are today.

Because it didn’t happen with enough spiritual volume from infancy to adulthood, America is a very ugly place spiritually. In other words the nations spiritual decadent apostasy has reached the heavens and there is no remedy for America. Other than total annihilation for their America, and for the handful, who weep over the destruction of God’s modern day Daughter of Babylon. Why weep? Because, we failed to save their America and ours too.

Previous discussions have established the birthing of America. Also establishing the concept for the Daughter of Babylon as the United States. Because the United States isn’t directly named in God’s sacred infallible word. Instead God the perfect picturesque artist took another ancient Babylonian kingdom he destroyed under King Nebuchadnezzar. And drew a parallel, by calling the United States the Daughter of Babylon, whom he will also destroy.

Fair question why, because the United States like the new born in a cradle had a supernatural birth. Destined to birth a world for the glory of God with all of its spiritual appendages. Instead the United Sates violated God’s sacred injunction.

Here is one of God’s sacred injunctions, there are others. For this discussion, we’ll consider on of them. So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it. Therefore do not defile the land which you inhabit, in the midst of which you inhabit, in the midst which I dwell; for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel. Texts:Numbers 35:33-34.

A short explanation about the children of Israel. In Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile for all are one in Christ, and thus Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Texts:Galatians 3:28-29.

Understand this, the United States means nothing to Jesus. What matters to Jesus is the church. And he like he said in Numbers is among us. John saw seven golden lampstands. In the midst of them was one like the Son of Man. Later it was explained to John that the lampstands are the seven churches. And in their midst is Jesus, even today. Texts:Revelation 1:12-20.

Back from that little diversion to consider the shedding of blood. For the shedding of blood, the millions of babies aborted for the convenience of their parents. The number of murders committed through out the United States. And the blood shed, because of her numerous wars.

For those sins, here is God’s response. Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” And he said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother cries out to me from the ground.” Genesis 4:9-10. Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God, he made man. Text:Genesis 9:6.

Other nations are not exempt from God’s sacred imperatives. They have, and will continue to be dealt with. But as the time of the church ends, America will be first. Why? Recall previous discussions as America being his golden cup. His battle ax to hammer the entire earth. Not as a spiller of blood, but rather as lamp of his light at home and abroad.

Homeboys there is a bear in ur yard

Oh! How time changes perceptions. Recalling the fall of the Berlin wall. That barrier that split the free world from the totalitarian world. With Russia that fearless premier bear controlling East Germany and the Eastern world. Whose leader, a fearless bear, Russian Premier Mikhail Gorbachev. Opposing the United States the unchallengeable bald eagle perched upon the worlds highest mountains. Able to dive at speeds of one hundred mile per hour and annihilating its unsuspecting prey. Being the the battle ax that hammer the whole world. And who protected West Germany and Western European democracies from far away.

A prophetic wall that split Germany into halves. Then came grandest of American eagles, President Ronald Reagan, on, 12 June 1987. Arriving at the Brandenburg Gate the passage way from East Berlin to West Berlin. Standing behind two glass bullet proof barriers. Placed there to protect him from snipers, who might try to assassinate this grand bald eagle. Calling out the world’s fearless bear, Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, Demanding, “Tear down this wall!” And down it came, and today Germany is united undivided country.

This padre declares that it was prophetic because Germany must be united, as the world we live in moves towards closure. This ancient Assyrian empire will play a significant role in histories future, an it’ll be Un-American. As the two empires parade themselves as allies, they are not allies and never were from a scriptural perspective. The only perspective that matters! America,

America your greatness was magnificent. There was never one like you nor will there ever be another, though it will be attempted.

Then on, 20 September 1950, at a United General Assembly meeting. That Russian fearless bear, Premier, the one like no other, Mikhail Gorbachev, pounded his shoe on the podium, and announced, “We will bury you.” Another prophetic declaration! Because that’s just what that fearless Russian bear will accomplish, the burying or destruction of God’s modern day Babylon or their United States.

That was indeed, a historical prophetic moment in recorded history. However, different scenarios exist. Some saying it occurred, 18 November 1956, while Premier Khrushchev, was addressing Western ambassadors at a reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow. To some saying that he never made such a declaration. And certainly, not at a United Nations General Assembly gathering.

For history enthusiast from a scriptural perspective, the events surrounding Khrushchev and Reagan were significantly important. For the understanding of the times we live in because both events were world changers for prophetic prophecy. They were about the changing of the guard. Daniel gave us that truth that was revealed to him in a night vision, “And he changes the times and the seasons; he removes kings and raises up kings.” Texts:Daniel 2:19a;21a.

God’s golden cup, his battle that has hammered the whole earth is dying. It seems that magnificent bald eagle is old and worn out. And that fearless Russian bear once humiliated by speedy maneuverability of that diving bald eagle smells it days of revenge. Picturesque through the Russian Ukrainian standoff with the United States and what it thinks are its allies. World governments sense that the United States has lost its golden grip on world affairs. As exemplified in the stand off in Syria with the Russian bear prevailing over the once invincible soaring and diving bald eagle. Another Russian ally, Iran senses secure protection from that bear if needed. Because that golden eagle is all wings and no flight.  Causing the community of nations to sense that a new world order is evolving. Without a playground for the United States to meddle in. Truth be told, so do many Americans.

Some readers regularly read these discussion, others do not. This is shared to be helpful. The expression golden cup and battle ax that hammered the who earth. Such expressions come from Jeremiah 50:23;51:20;Jeremiah 51:7.

Previous discussions indicate that the Babylonian empire under examination is not the ancient Babylonian empire under King Nebuchadnezzar. But rather God’s modern day Babylonian empire, the United States. More discussions will follow exemplifying that supposition adding greater authority for such a position.

Mysterious journey

Some say curiosity killed the cat, maybe, but it could also be said that lack of curiosity will kill the community of nations. Americans seem to think that whatever occurs that their beloved United States will be exempt, not so.

Such a notion streams one conscientiousness from an awareness of the United States exceptionality for doing exceptional things. Which resulted in the U.S. being praised, or condemned. Praised for liberating the world from certain global tyranny during the second world war. Condemned for always meddling in the sovereign affairs nation states.

From a recent discussions, we discovered a winged lion breaking loose from that lion on a continental flight. Landing on the ocean shores of what was suppose to become God’s golden cup, God’s modern day Babylon, their United States. Equipped with a provided battle ax that would hammer the whole earth. And as that eagle stood on the sea shore, it was given the legs of a man. The scripture cited made no mention that that eagle was also given the heart of a man. And tagged, as Uncle Sam, the benevolent care giver wherever tragedy struck.

Two recent occasions will sever as examples. The United States didn’t think twice or hesitate to contribute in the hunt for the mysterious disappearance Malaysian Airlines jetliner, flight 370. Even though its a world away from the United States. Causing China to become very suspicious of the United States in their part of the world. Most likely the Chinese have good reason to be suspicious of the United States. The United States most likely is seeking to serve as the benevolent care giver to a people in need. While at the same time meddling in the affairs of China, through their sophisticated spy apparatuses.

Have you noticed how U.S. Secretary, John Kerry has hammered his Russian counterpart, Sergey Larov, not meddle in the affairs of Ukraine. Offering $1 billion in loan guarntees and pledges of technical assistance. While his boss, President Obama, has spent considerable time on the telephone with Russian President Putin. Those conversation were all about the United States acting as the hammer of the earth, when it comes to international affairs.

If you haven’t noticed, notice it now, the United States is no longer God’s golden cup or God’s battle ax to hammer the whole earth. Both phrases have been explained with scriptural citations in recent discussions.

Here’s the launching platform for unspecting change.

And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces everything; and like iron that crushes that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And on the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. Texts:Daniel 2:40-43,NKJV.

Involved in this discussion were the nation states of the United States, Ukraine, Russia, China and Malaysia. All be major players in the ultimate destruction of the United States And are associated with the cited texts.

Russia will do as it pleases with Ukraine and the world community will just have to live with it. Russia and China will be two of three world super powers, as the world moves deeper into the twenty first century. The other power will be Islam, and Islam will end doing as it pleases to Israel and the United States.
The journey will be continued.

Beauty and the Beast

Concluding thoughts from the previous discussion hoped that God’s Babylon, and their America would return to being his golden cup and hammer the whole earth, as designed. Meaning a community of nations seeking righteousness and holiness from among the people.

However, a survey of Christendom results in finding a church in a pathetic and almost hopeless state of apostasy. A church that God can’t stand, as acknowledged in Revelation 3:16. Combined with the ugly incidiousness of corporate America. Wearing many faces from banking, entertainment, manufacturing, nonprofits to medicine. They are creating an America where spiritual idolatry is god. And that idolatry wheres the face of profits over the sanctity of their environment for the common good of the people for ultimate glory of God Almighty. Which should be administered by them, as their reasonable duty to God Almighty Almighty.

In their fallen state, they have chosen to dishonor the original designer for industrialization. Who saw profits, as acceptable and necessary, when planted properly. Study:Matthew 13:1-33. Not long ago, this padre counseled a business person to use those principles to grow successfully, and thus in a profitable manner ones business. Here’s one example to avoid. Recently a bill reached the desk of Arizona governor, Jan Brewer’s desk which she needed to sign for it to become law. She didn’t sign it because the combined industrial power brokers within and outside of Arizona thought that the law would hurt business in that state. Had she signed the bill into law, by choice businesses could refuse to make their products and services unavailable to homosexuals. They chose to dishonor God Almighty and will pay for their sins. Because God Almighty condemns homosexuality. Study Romans 1:18-32; note carefully, God is against everyone, who suppresses the truth in unrighteousness, v.18, and that God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting, v.28.

Through the divine providence of time three kingdoms have come and gone. Silence occurred for centuries waiting for another global empire. As we waited, God shared this information causing eartlings to speculate concerning the powers in control of this fourth kingdom. Most agreed that Satan would be the controlling influence within this kingdom. Speculating that the Roman Catholic Church would be the false prophet. Leaving one vacancy to be filled which meant finding a suitable antichrist. Which was to be a political person, who would emerge from the revived Roman Empire today’s European Union But for that to be so, its membership would have to be trimmed to ten member states. Because that notion is based around the ten horned beast seen in Daniel 7:24; Revelation 13:1.

It has been said that the more things change the more they stay the same. Maybe so, and maybe not. Because, Islam could well be those ten horned kings. A confederation of ten Muslim states. And a mysterious king arrives and destroys three of those kings. This mysterious king could be Islam’s long waited for messiah, the guided one. Who will restore peace and justice to the earth.

Why Islam, and not the European Union, as the revived old Roman empire. Because Islam is the only world power, who constantly announces its determination to conquer and rule the entire world. Promising to free the world of immoral decadence and ruthless profiteering. Condemns homosexual behavior, and doesn’t recognize equality for woman within society. And declared by Daniel to be different from all other kingdoms, as it devours the whole earth trampling it in pieces. Text:Daniel 7:23.

And it fits the Daniel’s profile for such a world broker. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all others. Texts Daniel 2:40-43.

As this journey continues there will other players within this fourth kingdom like Russia and China. Remember also that this is a journey about the complete destruction of God’s Babylon. To the shame of the church and their United States for the disgrace of its unrighteous citizens.

They got to play in the playground of Oz

Babylon, magnificent in all her ways and seemingly not conquerable. Because God had destined his Babylon and their America, as his ‘golden cup.’ Babylon was a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore the nations are deranged.Text:Jeremiah 51:7,NKJV.

Resulting in an empire that would serve as his club, the hammer of the whole earth. Recorded this way, “You are my battle ax and weapons of war. With you I will break the nation in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms. With you I will break in pieces the horse and its rider; with you I will break in pieces the chariot and its rider. With you also I will break in pieces man and woman; with you I will break in pieces old and young; with you I will break in pieces the young man and the maiden; With you also I will break in pieces the shepherd and his flock; With you I will break in pieces the farmer and yoke of oxen; and with you I will break in pieces governors and rulers.” Text:Jeremiah 51:20-23,NKJV.

Those verses capsule American power and influence that seems like an eternity. An eternity of less than three quarters of a century. And nation states and their people are sensing that Babylon, their America, is no longer that golden cup. With the United States losing its ability to be the hammer of the whole earth.

However this is interesting because maybe it’s possible for God’s Babylon to regain her status as the LORD’S golden cup. Able to serve again, as his hammer of the whole earth. Because in the world of Oz, evil never sleeps. So note, “Take balm for her pain; perhaps she maybe healed.” Texts:Jeremiah 51:8b,NKJV.

Because the alternative their Babylon, the United States, is dreadful. Babylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed. Text:Jeremiah 51:a. The suddenness for such a causative event is shocking. It’ll occur perhaps Babylon is a nation resting upon her past laurels, but nevertheless, still a military superpower. With the most sophisticated intelligence apparatus available in the playground of Oz.

Taking a detour to examine the notion of taking balm for her pain and perhaps she may be healed. Here are some things we know about God. He said, He did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that through Him the world should be saved. In that nation states are lifeless without our species giving them life. And then traveling to the book of Revelation, we discover this admonishment and encouragement. There God declares himself to be the Faithful and True Witness. Declaring that as many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. And then this promise, to him that overcomes, I will grant to sit on my throne, as I have overcome and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches. Texts John 3:17;Revelation 3:14,19,21,22,NKJV.

Here’s a certainly, Manasseh our eagle fleeing England the land of religious oppression. Establishing a foothold on the shores of what would become God’s Babylon and their United States. Over time, control was lost and a secular state emerged. Only God’s Babylon has been declared to be his golden cup and his hammer over the whole earth. Their United States was destined to be subservient to God’s Babylon. A nation divested from secular governance and invested in spirituality for itself and the world. Getting on that path may be the balm that brings healing.

Smoking ruins USA

A time is coming, when the United States will be destroyed. And her citizens will suffer cruelty from foreign invaders. Merchants on their way across the ocean will arrive at her ports. Only to be saddened, as they observe a nations ruins emitting nothing but smoke into the atmosphere. Asking what has become of this great city? And few are preparing for that day, and fewer believe that such a thing could ever occur.

As these postings are developed, we shall discover the merits from your hypothesizer. Allowing history to prove there validity, or not.

If you are an American living in the United States, that represents a designation that unfolded at the hands of mortals. Men who fled England and seen crossing the ocean as a winged eagle attached to a lion. This eagle was plucked from this lion and landed on the ocean shores of a land that would become the United States. Given legs, and made to stand like a man. Then through hardships, and injustices they eventually crafted a country. That they hailed as a land of freedom, justice and equality for everyone. An enterprise more than two hundred years in the making and still a work in progress.

An American enterprise that was not recognized by God Almighty. Because he classified this American endeavor by saying, “Behold the nations are as a drop in a bucket, and are counted as the small dust on the scales; look, he lifts up the isles as a very little thing.” Text:Isaiah 40:15,NKJV.

Rather God saw this American enterprise as the birthing of a land that he called Babylon. Which is supported from the books of Jeremiah and Revelation. Yes, another Babylonian empire existed under a king named Nebuchadnezzar but is no more. This current Babylonian empire is also a work in process to becoming no more.

And God didn’t waste anytime establishing Babylon, as a shameful nation state. Because he had Jeremiah record this statement. “Your mother shall be deeply ashamed; she who bore you shall be ashamed.” Text:Jeremiah 50:12a,NKJV. Americans know that the nation gained its independence after fighting its revolutionary war against Great Britain. It has been stated in this series that Epheraim would become the father of what would become Great Britain and her Commonwealth of nations. Whose national emblem is the lion. And that Daniel saw this lion air born having the wings of an eagle. Eventually landing on the ocean shores to give birth to America. The scriptural founder of America is Manasseh and not George Washington. The scriptural citations were also given and explained.

To help convince you that America is God’s modern day Babylonian empire. Consider this phrase from God himself, “And against all the mixed peoples who are in her midst” Historians have referred to America as the melting pot of the world. On, 2 December 1783, President George Washington said the following. “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectful Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they merit the enjoyment.”

Now for a more complete scriptural text, “A sword against the Chaldeans” says the LORD.” Against the inhabitants of Babylon, and against her princes and her wise men. A sword against the soothsayers, and they will be fools. A sword against her might men and they will be dismayed. A sword is against their horses, against their chariots, and against all the mixed people who are in her midst; and they will become like women. a sword against her treasures, and they will be robbed.”  Texts:Jeremiah 50:35-37.

On the horizon, “Smoking ruins USA.

Roguery at work

Here are two short stories, one of magnificence’s and the other not so magnificent. We know this because Isaiah was privileged to see Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of his robe filled the temple.

Above it stood seraphim’s; each one had six wings. He covered his face. With two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to the another, and said, “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.

So I said, “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips. And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips. For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts.”

Then one of the seraphim’s flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.”

Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And he said, “Go and tell this people. Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive. Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and return and be healed.”

Then I said, “Lord how long?” And he answered, “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, the houses are without man, the land is desolate.

The LORD has removed men far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. But yet a tenth will be in it, and will return and be for consuming. As a terebinth tree or as an oak, whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump.” Texts:Isaiah 6:1-13.

What you have read is a duel prophecy. It has direct applications to both Israel and nations born of Jacob’s anointing of Ephraim, for the birth of Great Britain and her Commonwealth of Nations. And Manasseh, who separated himself from Great Britain, and landed on the ocean shores of what would become the United States. But as an eagle, then given the legs and made to stand up as a man. Material previously discussed and explained.

In the providence of divine judgment Jesus was born. As a man, Jesus became quite the history maker through story telling. And this time he confirmed what was shared with Isaiah. It goes this way. He was asked what a particular story meant. Answering, “To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. But to those outside, review yesterday’s  discussion, all things come in parables. So that seeing they may not perceive, and hearing they may hear and not understand; lest they should turn, and their sins be forgiven them.” Texts:Mark 4:11-12.

Have you ever wondered or, asked yourself, why isn’t the United States directly mentioned in the Bible? It is, as demonstrated today and in previous discussions in this series.

Many have heard about the final world war called Armageddon. Along with the return of Jesus to sit on his father’s throne in Jerusalem, as King of Kings. But unknown to many is the unimportance of the United States during this time of agony and bliss. That should raise some questions, as to why? And equally significant, it should raise a considerable amount of fear.

Discussing the contents of such subject matters will be the focus of future discussions.

A few lines above it was said that the United States has been directly mentioned in the Bible. True it is! But it rather obscure because it’s hidden from the unseeing and to those made scripturally deaf. And compounded, by the affliction lacking understanding. But it’s readily there, for those whose sins have been healed.

From a geopolitical perspective America is seen as these United States, and its citizens are declared to be Americans. But God doesn’t recognize ideologies of humanness; instead God refers to the United States as the Daughter of Babylon, and her citizens as Chaldeans.

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. This padre is not that teacher. He is the instrument chosen to lead students to that teacher. And that teacher is the Word of God. Seeing, hearing and understanding arrives when that notion is absorbed. Otherwise there will be confusion and contradictions over what the Word, Jesus is saying. A disease plaguing Christendom; and attributed to Satan, who walks to and fro and up and down the earth, again from a recent discussion.

Tomorrow the discussion about identifying the United States as the Daughter of Babylon and what it means.

Getting to know yourself

People are curious creatures because believe it or not, we all are created in his image. Which suggests, that God also is curious. But his curiosity seems to be more intuitive because he already knows how things end from the beginning. Certainly God would not get any satisfaction, if for example, he exercised his proclivity. By creating a species in his image that knew nothing other than to bless, honor, glorify and worship their creator.

So God spared himself of having a species that catered to his wishes to be honored, glorified and worshiped in an involuntary manner. By allowing his human species the freedom not to honor or worship him. So he set the world on a course that would either bless, honor, glorify and worship him or reject such a proposition. And from that decision, we have today’s world.

Which seems to have scriptural support. There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. He was wealthy and it was said that this man was the greatest of all people of the East.

Then on a particular day God struck up a conversation with Satan. Asking, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is none like him on the earth. A blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?” And Satan answers, not so because you have created an environment that gives him no other alternative.

Satan challenged God by demanding that choice should be given to Job. And asserting do that, and he’ll curse you to your face. And God replied to Satan saying, “Behold  all that he has is in your power; only do not lay hand on his person.” And, Job suffered great losses. But he was still unmoved to curse God. Instead he blessed, honored and glorified God. In it is said this way, “In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.

Later Satan and God had another encounter. And a reiteration of the aforementioned reoccurred. But this time God scolds Satan. By saying, “Still he holds fast to his integrity, although you have incited me against him, to destroy him without cause.”

Satan responded, “Skin for skin! Yes all that a man has will he give for his life.” Then we have this Satanic challenge, “Stretch out your hand now! And touch his bone and his flesh, and he’ll surely curse you to your face.” And an angry God said to Satan, “Behold he is in your hand, but spare his life.”

And Satan did just that and Job suffered. And along come Job’s wife. Asking, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”

And Job said to his wife, “You speak as a foolish woman speaks, Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. Texts:Job Chapters 1-2:9. Life is all about freedom to chose.

In the scriptures shared this question is asked of Satan twice. And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Satan answered, From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” Texts:Job 1:7;Job 2:2. There is a Satanic presence on this earth and it’s a struggle to determine how curious human creatures respond to challenges to bless, honor, glorify and worship their creator. And from around that, revolves world turmoil.

Because choice exist to dishonor ones creator by denying that a creator exists. Asserting that world turmoil is a struggle for the survival by nations. And the nation most advanced technologically, sets the perimeters for that struggle. A role the United States has played on the world scene for sometime. But America got there because of reliance upon the wisdom of divine providence. But a new god has captured the nations attention, and God refers to his challenger as the god of idolatry. Idolatry in this instance is the worship of technology.

If you don’t know yourself, than you will not understand the unraveling of the United States. And to really know yourself, you must experience, Romans 10:9-10. Which brings about the understanding recorded in, 2 Corinthians 5:17.

And tomorrows discussion will help you understand why. It’s because the Word of God is a closed voice for most searchers of any issue; unless one can confirm the voices of Romans and Corinthians. It’s part of the mysteriousness of divine conscientiousness. If you haven’t already entered Jesus’ inner group, now is the time.

WorldChangers

What an interesting date with destiny that is owned by all of us Christians. Because unfolding before us is the arrangement of a new world order of nation superiority. The great Russian Bear has always been mighty. And the Russian/Ukrainian controversy will leave a world villain Gog. With its scriptural designation of Magog modern Moscow claiming that superiority. So formidable will Gog be that the world’s complaining of sanctions will be like water off a ducks back. In other words, they’ll have no effect. Because, it’s Gog’ time to begin it’s final date with its own destiny. And, it will be not a good destiny for the United States.

And if you are a news junkie, then you know that the news forecasters are becoming more and more suspicious of the United States as being the hammer of the whole earth. It’s been alleged by these wire sources that Obama’s failure to manage world crises. Has caused President Putin to sense that the United States will once again be ineffective.

And the Iranians share the same awareness, therefore, they are playing a game of cat and mouse with the United States over their nuclear program. Seeing themselves as the cat able to devour the United States at will concerning the possession of nuclear weapons.

Most likely Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is intuitively very sensitive to the fading influence of the United States. Guess what? It’s a common thread shared by many others, including Americans. Things aren’t like they use to be in America. And, guess what? It’s scriptural. America is to become a thing of the past. And this padre says praise God because the United States is going to get what she deserves for her idolatries against God. America has recreated for herself the days that led to the flood. Only this time their may be no Noah to spare America. As she is the ancient embodiment of Sodom and Gomorrah. And the Ancient of Times, the one, who knows the end from the beginning. Accuses the United States of having corrupted and polluted Christendom world wide with her idolatries. What’s God advice to the saints? Flee the country!

Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, 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. Texts:Isaiah 46:9-10. Which is to destroy, an unrepentant America.

Brought about the fearsome East; “Calling a bird of prey from the east, the man who executes my council, from a far country. Indeed I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will do it.” Text:Isaiah 46:11.

A lot of what was discussed arrived without scriptural support. It’s coming.

Post Script:What was said about Obama wasn’t meant to be Obama bashing. It’s just that his presidency seems to represents a little boy trying to make it in a man’s world. He appears confused.

But no worse than Bush senior who saw Russia as a friend. A partner in stabilizing the world.

Then comes pretty boy Clinton, who disgraced himself and the country with Monica Lewinsky. Who never saw a truth that he couldn’t turn into a lie.

Followed by Bush junior, who was tagged as being a shrub and not a bush due to his lack of statesmanship. Demonstrated through his weapons of mass destruction that never existed. And a war, launched without regard to the potential loss of American lives. For the glory of juniors place in history. Establishing a mantra that is killing America. When he said, America is not at war with Islam and never will be.

A mantra used by Obama, and will be used by those who succeed him. When in truth, the opposite is true. America, and the world is at war with Islam and always has been.

Their combined lack of spiritual discernment is a disease inflicted upon them by a God. Who is angry because of their increasing idolatries. Requiring a severe penalty because he said America was his golden cup.

Days beyond imagination

Wonder if what Daniel dreamt, so startled him that he awakened in a sweat. Concluding that he just had a nightmare. If so, for Daniel it was just a harmless vision during the night. But for a generation of people centuries later, it wouldn’t be harmless. It’s about Daniel 7:7.

After experiencing his nightmare, Daniel found himself considering the horns. Shocked again, this time while awake, while staring, he saw a little horn coming up from among the ten. And in that process three of ten horns were obliterated. Talk about strangeness, get this. Daniel writes, behold! This horn had eyes like a man and from his mouth he spoke great things.

From the living breathing word of God which had no beginning because God always existed. Comes a science referred to as occurrences for the future. And wrapped up in those mysterious happenings divine inspiration allows select mortals to unravel their mysteries. And from that we know that horns represents future governments.

Daniel profiles a leader of one of these governments. But first the end comes first because it dramatizes truth from fiction and demonstrates the effect of providence of divine enlightenment. Gabriel said, “And the vision of the evenings and mornings which was told is true; therefore seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future,” Daniel 8:16;26.

Head spinning, in amazement, no doubt, Daniel records this, “I Daniel, fainted and was sick for days; afterward I rose and went about the king’s business. I was astonished by the vision, but no one understood it,” Daniel 8:27.

Now to time travel backwards with Daniel to meet this little horn with fierce features and a menacing  mouth. Then giving us the cogitative awareness to reverse our backward motion to the future.

A helping hand is a welcome hand for the troubled; especially for Daniel in the midst of his confusion. In this instance it’s the angel Gabriel. With instructions from the Ancient of Days to set the stage for world horror. And so Gabriel unloads, the worlds arsenal of terrorized horror. Saying, “In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness. A king shall arise having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; he shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. Through his cunning, he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule. And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human means,” Daniel 8:16;23-25.

Our world in an approaching tomorrow from verses 23-25. Our world from a disappointing yesterday.

Man’s transgressions against God will have reached there limits.

A world leader will have unified governments into a one world body.

It’s governance will be brutal and there will be no such thing as noncompliance.

The most fierce and brutal ruler ever known. His authority and power is of a supernatural origin.

He will move across the globe creating never before fear among the nations. Gaining great riches and delighting in one conquest after another.

The once thought invincible nations like the U.S. will fall. He will remake the holocaust.

His success comes cunning ability to deceive.

Pride will capture his whole being after surveying his his accomplishments. Having done successfully the unthinkable.

And so why not destroy the Prince of princes, and show the world who really is God.

And that to the believers delight is his fatal mistake.

Poured out drink offerings

Along came a guy named Daniel, who by privilege from God was allowed to see the stage of world horror centuries before the actual occurrence. There is a valuable lesson contained in that sentence. Because God doesn’t need a mere mortal like Daniel, you, or me, to set anything in motion. No matter how significant or insignificant the occurrence might be. By grace sometimes divine providence chooses someone to serve as a revelationist. It must always be accepted as a privilege because divine purpose doesn’t need anyone to accomplish what has been predetermined before the foundation of the world.

Why, one might ask? A question long pondered by this padre. Because, he has been the recipient of divine manifestations. Before returning to Daniel, here are a couple of thoughts. Then to Adam he said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you saying, ‘You shall not eat of it!'” “Cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth to you. And, you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread. Till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return,” Genesis 3:17-19.

What is Moses by divine privilege saying? Life is tough because its so full of struggles. One doesn’t need much convincing for a node agreement; unless one is an American. But it reaches beyond the physical plane, to the spiritual. The ground, our world is cursed. Making the harvesting of a spiritual existence a task great magnitude and risk; again an experience foreign to most Christians in America. But the kind of, ‘work that produces sweat,’ might well be these words. Then I heard a load voice from heaven saying, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ has come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them day and night has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death,” Revelation 12:10-11. And! That is the esoteric struggle of Genesis 3:17-19. Now that is really a yard full of thorns and thistles. But! It leads to the defeat of our accuser. Keep this in mind, and ask, what does this mean?

It means, “For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge, will give to me on that day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved his appearing,” 2 Timothy 4:6-8.

As a poured out drink offering, a man man who new something about sweating during the course cultivating of the land fit for harvesting. Having weeded out his share of life killing thorns and thistles. And when all is said, and done, his advice, keep hoeing, and we too will receive the crown of righteousness.

So the question, for Christ, are you willing to be abused, as a poured out drink offering? Plowing a city with sweat and if necessary your blood. Being attacked by the cruelest of thorn’s and thistle’s. Who wouldn’t think twice about removing your head from the rest of your body. More about that factual experience in a future discussion.

Now, a return to Daniel. And if you know anything about Daniel, than you know he not only knew, but experienced the exhortations of Genesis, Revelation and 2 Timothy.

The life of the Christ follower in America is an unadventurous walk for most. But that’s going to change, really change. It’s under way! Foulest of thorns and thistles have pretty much banned Christ from the public forum. There is a new god combing America and the world community. It’s a god that the thorns and thistles want you to acknowledge. That god preaches the doctrines of inclusion and political correctness. Inclusion that says, we are a global community and tolerance is the primary commandment; irrespective of how offensive it is to Jesus Christ. Followed by the commandment which demands political correctness. For now, failure to adhere to those doctrines could result in being shunned at school, work and in your community. And in some incidences disallowed to participant in certain bodies, if you are going to name Jesus. Adults could lose their jobs. Now what’s occurring does not carry any criminal penalties but efforts are underway to change that too.

So here’s some of that Daniel stuff.

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with his feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns, Daniel 7:7.

Next: An expansion and impact of one of those horns.

Unimaginable imagined

Ever stop to give that some thought beyond what you were taught while in school about the origins of America? Coming are some truths that most likely weren’t taught but should have been. And maybe, the world might be very different from the world of today and tomorrow. This is assured, tomorrows world is very scary. Leading to a climax unimaginable to Americans. Buckle up and put on your inquisitive hat.

From yesterdays discussion it was discovered that Jacob had two grandsons. One named Ephraim, who would become the father of nations. Who in the providence of time through the Ancient of Times, using a phrase introduced by the prophet Daniel became Great Britain. And the other grandson, Manasseh, who would become a great people that we know as Americans.

A sight never before seen, at least not by Daniel, nor me, how about you? A flying lion with wings. Who had its eagle like wings plucked on a cross ocean voyage. Ending on the ocean shores of what would become America. Given a pair of legs and made to stand like a man. Benevolent, as he was mighty and tagged Uncle Sam.

Then low and behold, along comes the United States Congress on, 20 June 1782, and adopts the bald eagle as its official national symbol. Like the United States, it has no predators within its species. Like the United States the bald eagle nests securely at the top of the worlds  mountain tops. There this magnificent creature rules its world. Because it’s an awesome hunting machine with a wing span of up to seven feet. It can fly at speeds of thirty miles per hour and exceptional eye sight. Once it spots its prey it can dive at speeds up to one hundred miles an hour. Sweeping down, and snatching its prey with its strong talons. Capturing its prey before the victim realizes its doomed to become food for the family dinner. So has America the beautiful with like characteristics. Think of the lion, king of the beasts! It’s helpless, and neutralized by God’s eagle of the skies.

Thus symbolizing the fate of the nations friends or foes. Starting with the nations revolutionary war against Great Britain. Who ever would have thought that the worlds foremost empire, who ruled both land masses and worlds oceans would lose that war. Symbolizing another unbelievable historic event, the defeat of the United States by an enemy that most thought was just a nuisance, Islam. Symbolized by the characteristics of both the rat and skunk both undesirable within its world that it shares with others. Nevertheless it survives and dramatizes  its world. And, so will Islam in a very unsuspecting way. Mating with the fearless bear of Gog and Magog, the capital city of modern day Russia. Aided by an emerging super power, China. Joined by a confederation of Islamic nations which spells hell for the world.

Eagles mate for life, one male and one female the natural order of all species. A long held belief of the United States. Now the U.S. thinks the natural of the species can be two men or two women. A notion that God condemns. And no doubt, a contributing factor to the nations demise altogether as a nation. However, and perhaps the primary factor is the nations betrayal of Israel.

The bald eagle was chosen as the nations national emblem because of its stability, strength, loyalty, shared responsibility and long life. Over the years the eagles nest can weigh as much as two tons. Once the female lays her eggs both parents share incubation and at birth guard their hatchlings. So has America behaved since about 1945, and did so, as God’s golden cup and hammer of the world.

And what you have read has nothing to do with the worlds last world war, Armageddon. It’s just God doing what he said he would do, as expressed by the prophet Daniel. “Daniel answered and said, blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are his. And he changes the times and seasons; he removes kings and raises up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; he knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with him.” Texts:Daniel 2:20-22. And the world, trembled not.

The contents of this discussion will be expanded upon with future discussions. And may God give you wisdom and understanding. Because our world is in the process of a terrifying make over which isn’t going to be very pleasant. And because of that, may God grant you mercy!
