A tale of truth

On a particular day a florist went to a barber shop for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, “I can not accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.” The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a police officer came in for a hair cut, and when he tried to pay his bill, the barber again replied, “I can not accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.” The officer was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

A congressman came in for a hair cut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again relied, “I can not accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.” The Congressman was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a couple dozen or more Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut. And that’s the fundamental difference between the people who work for a living, and the politicians who live off the people. Enuf said! Time to dump that bunch and start over! It’s the American way!!! A history no politician wants to hear about. But a cord sounding better and better to the electorate. (source:Patriot Humor-but modified by this writer).

heart beat laws

Outcomes concerning abortion rights isn’t mysterious because male dominated legislators will always deny women the right to decide the fate of their pregnancy.

In Alabama women make up 51% of the population. But the law making legislature there is 85% male. The Alabama senate consists of 31 males, and four women, who are all democrats.

Because abortion is so intimate, it’s a decision that should be decided individually by each woman. Absent male coercion by intimidation or law.

Total self determination for women for the abortion issue and all other matters isn’t going to occur. Unless women set aside politics and vote their self interests. Which means support politicians who understand, and will pledge to legislate the elements of the New Green Deal. Because the New Green Deal will legislate federal law making choice a women’s decision. And if necessary, and most likely, it will be necessary to expand the Supreme Court to fifteen members. The 2020 election cycle is critical for preserving and advancing American democracy.

the do nothing club

For this discussion a thought, from one patriotic American. A man whose deeds and courage are forever indelibly written in the memory of the nation. A person whose spirit and determination is absent from today’s America. It does not matter if it is from the secular, or our religious community, America lacks the persona of Patrick Henry.

Patrick Henry, 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 is the way it is today for more reasons than this discussion will allow. With that in mind, these brief comments will suffice, for now.

The nation lacks vigilant, active, and brave men and women. Determined to make America what she promised to be. Early Christian philosophers and clergy used the harbor lights as an euphemism for the greatness of America. A light in a harbor designed to guide ships to safe harbor. As well as a light, on a mountain top serving as a beacon of light, serving the same function. Helping people find their way during inclement weather. Based around the notion of John 8:12, from what Jesus said, “I am the light of the world; he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” Suggesting that America was a nation with a destiny. Pointing the way to the benefits of a free, just and fair republic.

That beacon light for the safe harbor of hope, is in serious need of an overhauling. Which will take vigilant, active, brave men and women to accomplish. One thing is certain, the federal government will not be the instruments for a nation in desperate need of an overhauling. An overhauled America, will occur through the efforts of vigilant, active, brave Christian men and women.

Americans needs to mobilize, and reject what we are seeing, and experiencing from today’s America. America is a nation that has lost its spiritual determination for itself and the world community. No longer a beacon of light for spiritual regeneration. That produces justice and fairness at home and for the world to admire and imitate. But rather a nation to despise, and hate. To the shame of of our Christian community. Who once knew, what the newness of life in Christ was all about. Because, that memory has been methodical erased

Who is responsible for such an occurrence? Certainly the finger of blame can be pointed at many and in many directions. But the primary culprit for finger pointing, must be directed at individual Christians. It’s the ultimate duty of the church of Jesus Christ to keep America on the moral path. Those outside of the saving grace of Jesus Christ, can not be expected to govern from the perspective of light. Especially, if John 8:12, is taken seriously by the Church of Jesus Christ.

The church is not about wood boxes built upon concrete slabs. And fancied, with stained glass windows. Nor are their occupants about about fine new threads and fancy cars. It is about the execution of the plan and purpose designed by Jesus Christ for His church. With the people showing a raw toughness in the execution of that purposefully designed cause.

Instead of raw toughness for Christ most Christians can best be defined as members of the do nothing club. Passing their time as inactive participants in what the Bible refers to as the last days. Rather than making straight the way of the Lord. For the day will come, when a new kingdom will appear upon this earth. And, it will be a kingdom ruled by Jesus Christ.

Many have been told that signs exist. So that one might determine, when the last days will arrive before the establishment of His kingdom. Knowing something about these signs will help us understand these troubled times. But that should not be the primary focus, it should be our impetus to be more vigilant.

Christianity today is more about entertainment than Christ centered action. Which happens to be, one of those sought after signs. There are other road signs announcing the “last days.” But of the hour for the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth, it is known only to God. As far as road signs, some are as obvious, as they are disgusting.

To name a couple road signs pertaining to the church. Pedophiles in God’s church, who are there by choice. Thinking it to be a safe harbor for sexual exploitation of children.

Then the ordination of homosexuals into the ministry of the church. Behaviors condemned by God, who said in Leviticus 18:22, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman.” And Leviticus 20:13, “If a man lies with male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them,” Apologists for such behavior argue that Leviticus does not apply to the Christian church. Well it does, because it represents unnatural behavior. Note: “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lusts for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty which was due,” Romans 1:26-27. The only sexual relationship condoned by God is recorded in Genesis. God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him,” Genesis 2:18. Then it is said in verse 24, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and they shall be one flesh.”

Among the many more despicable behaviors plaguing the church. Is the drive by the church to be mirrored, as a partner with the government. Which is a disgrace, to the memory of Jesus Christ. Especially for those of us, who are aware of His teachings. And who are aware, that governments will give rise to the beast of Revelation thirteen. Which this writer, intends to discuss in the future.
Mortal unregenerated men and women are not fit to govern because that beacon of light is not available to them. The church needs to be the impetus that directs their governance. And that impetus must be the moving of the Holy Spirit through the vibrant body of His church.

Not in my Father’s house

Here we are a short time after Palm Sunday. Jesus on this day in history, is still in Jerusalem, and enters the temple, the Jewish house of worship. There he discovered that the temple had become a place of commerce. With great indignation, he astonishes everyone! Driving everyone out of the temple of God that either sold or bought. Charging the profiteers, as money changers and overthrowing tables. Admonishing them that His house was a house of prayer, but they had turned it into a “den of thieves!” (Scriptural texts:Matthew 21:12-13).

Suggesting that commerce was more important to the religious authorities than providing for the needs of the people. A condition that haunts and plagues Christianity today. A reading of the gospels combined with the gnostic gospels shows a Christ, who cared little about profit. His ministry was about providing for there spiritual and temporal needs.

In verse 14, we see Jesus caring for the temporal needs of the people. With the children paying tribute to Jesus, saying, Hosanna (meaning liberate us) to the son of David! verse 15. Instead of the religious leaders being pleased; they became indignant. Nothing has changed to this day. If it had, things would be very different. Religion is, and always has been about profit and oppression. The Christ, whose life we commemorate, paraded a different commemoration one of spiritual and temporal liberation.

This is just one event in a day most likely filled with other confrontations with the religious hierarchy. But if it was the only event recorded for us, perhaps because it filled his day, it was a full days work. Condemning greed, and self serving interest is always a hard days work.

What are we to make of these contradiction between Jesus and the religious authorities. The short answer is that the Christ of the gospels had nothing in common with the religious hierarchy. They were self serving their own interest for the sake of power and influence in the time of Jesus. It has not changed in our twenty first century.

The Christ we saw in Matthew was a man capable of anger. Willing to act upon that anger. Angry because money was more important than the practical needs of the people.

The function of the modern church should be two fold. First, it should be humble, and if necessary destroy the power structures that denies people their every day substance. Not meaning welfare dependency, but rather a fair market place for people who know the meaning of Genesis 3:19, your substance results from your labor and sweat. Meaning a livable wage pegged to inflation. So that when prices rise, so do wages. The government, and the nations corporate conglomerates would fight that to their death, and so should the body of Christ. But a great problem exists, many churches today would join the government, and corporate America in opposing such fairness. Making them today’s den of thieves. Resulting in the few, who know the purpose of a church to retreat in order to be regenerated spiritually for tomorrows battle. The Christ message is – change yourself and change your world – neither is simple.

wrecking balls needed

Living in a world that requires people to craft a living from the sweat of their brow. For many an eight hour day is a thing of the past. People are working longer hours. In addition many are ‘hounded’ constantly to produce more of a particular product in less time.

Resulting in more emotional and physical strain. Which is resulting in soaring health care costs for the American work force. Then workers are experiencing the disappearance of employment benefit packages such as sick leave, vacations and health care just to name a few. This only makes the emotional and physical strain more harsh.

To make matters worse, employers are refusing to provide workers with fair monetary compensation in order for workers to sustain the crunch of severe financial hardships. Which is the only way for workers to get the money that they deserve in order to stabilize emotional and physical deterioration.

That is only one side of the story. To compound the emotional and physical stress at work and the ill consequences. Many have to return home to confront another set of emotional and physical stresses. Making life not very pleasant for all to many.

We hear a lot about the bottom line. This is the bottom line. Many corporations are showing record profits year after year. Even major insurance companies which cry and get government endorsement for higher insurance rates; show record profits. The same is the case with for America’s utility companies. Then we have big oil with their booming profits. And the bottom line goes up, and up, and up again. Until it reaches the bank account of the American worker; then it spirals downward.

Here is the rest of the bottom line. The American work force is nothing more than a ‘commodity’ to be used and discarded to the trash can when worn out.

At this point readers should be experiencing one of two emotions. The need for a tissue to dry the tears. Or out rage because America is about profit and those who fall between the cracks; well it is their fault.

This writer holds that workers should hold their oppressors accountable. Easier said than done because American jurisprudence protects the oppressor in employment law. Again its a about the bottom line. The government doesn’t need your tax dollars. Labor law in its own way advocates the worker produce or be dammed. To many workers are being dammed! There are solutions and one of them is unionize.

donald trump and the post turtle


Two politicians were taking a hike, one a useless democrat named Chuck Schumer, the democratic minority leader in the senate. The other equally useless, the republican majority leader, Mitch McConnell.

When they came upon a rancher building a fence, so they stopped because they noticed that his hands were the hands of a working man accustomed to earning his living from a honest day of hard work. Something neither senator knew much about.

So they struck up a conversation with the rancher which allowed the rancher to discover that these were the two of the many in the congress, who were responsible for the working peoples misery. Now the rancher thought that he would drive a point into the conscience of these two politicians. But wondering, if they had a conscience. So the rancher said, “You know President Trump reminds me of a post turtle.”

Unfamiliar with the expression, the senators asked the rancher what he meant. The rancher replied, “When you are driving down a country road, and you come upon a fence with a turtle balanced upon the post.”

The rancher saw the puzzled look upon the faces of the two senators. So he said to the two senators, “You know that the turtle did not get on top of that post by himself.” The rancher continued, “He does not belong up there, and the turtle does not know what to do while he is on top of that post.” Putting his hands on his hips, the rancher said, “You have to wonder what kind of a morons put him there in the first place.”

With that that Chuck managed a laugh and slapped Harry on the back. But Harry was not so amused, but he responded, “Come on Chuck, lets get back to Washington. We have more misery to dish out.” Thinking to himself, we got to hurry before the President discovers that he is like that turtle on a post. The more Harry thought about the ranchers analogy, the more he feared the reality. Knowing that working Americans were beginning to understand the presidency of Mr. Trump. Worse yet, he knew the people were also beginning to see the congress for what it really was, a useless institution in the service of the people.

barbarianism of islam

The west, and in particular, the people of the United States, excluding the government, needs to learn and understand how Islamic theology and sharia law functions. Excluding the U.S. government because it has hopelessly drowned itself in the pluralism of multiculturalism. There are some people, who should be denied the benefits America offers, and they happen to be Muslims. Because Muslims do not want, and will not assimilate themselves fully into American culture.

Europe offers many examples and in particularly Germany. Germany trying to redeem itself from its, World War Two history, has warmly welcomed Muslim refugees fleeing tyranny into their country. Only to find itself in a culture war with Muslims over marrying off children considered to young to marry. German law forbids such marriages. Muslims there argue that there culture allows for arranged marriage of under age girls. And that they should be allowed to maintain their cultural practices in Germany.

An Iranian actress miraculous accepted Jesus as her Savior. She fled to Sweden seeking religious asylum. Her asylum petition has been denied. She faces deportation to Iran. She has declared that if deported to Iran. She will be immediately arrested and jailed. In jail she fears being repeatedly raped and then murdered. Because Islam has no tolerance for religion practices other than the barbarianism of Islam. The point being that Islam makes no exceptions to its religious, cultural or political practices. A Muslim is a Muslim no matter where they find asylum. And tolerance, or assimilation is not part of a Muslim mind set. Nor does that mind set change to children born into a non-Muslim country.

If America is to be saved from its Muslim menace it will be because of an awakened American public. It must come from within the determination of believers in Christ, who exist outside of traditional church mainstream or otherwise. Categorized as denominational churches, who exist under a particular umbrella, or free lancers of suspicious ideologies called non-denominationalist. Both divisions represent one of Christendoms greatest curses because it inhibits across the board cooperation which is desperately needed if Islam is to be defeated.

So mobilize, as home churches, and work to deny Islam what it wants, America. To be successful people need to be people of the Bible. Master all of what Paul wrote because Jesus chose him to be the apostle for the church age. For example Paul tells to rid ourselves of our Muslim menace. And, Paul tells why! See Galatians 4:28-31. Within those four verses is centuries of history allowing the Christo to understand the global Muslim problem. It’s a much different history than provided by secular sources. Some well credentialed but their credentials are absent the mind of God. A necessary prerequisite for understanding the individual human condition and world dynamics between nations.

Another Pauline gem for the enlightened discerner. “But he, who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him. But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:15-16.

bombs away

What you are about to read could be considered a collection of shenanigans. Perhaps nothing more than devious devices of deception. Many would argue they are not, and argue that the significance of world events can’t be understood apart from a close examination of three global entities struggling for world dominance. They are Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All in their own way subscribe to a spiritual force that dominate how many nations identify themselves. Billions of people are persuaded that their ideology, when implemented will bring about peace on earth.

At the heart of modern day mayhem is an ancient character named Jesus. He was born in Bethlehem, Israel, and developed an interesting formula for determining the authenticity of an ideology. He said, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but are inwardly ravenous wolves. You’ll know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown in the fire. Therefore by their fruit you will know them.” Recorded by a tax collector named Matthew, A.D. 50.

This Christ formula is applicable to Islam. Because Muslims come and bear a false Ideology of peace. Because their behavior tells the truth of them being false prophets. Jesus referred to Muslims as a people with the appearance of truth but are inwardly, “ravenous wolves.” Declaring that the Islamic end result is one of uselessness described as the fruits of thornbushes. Admonishing that Muslims can’t help themselves because it’s their natural nature to war with everyone. Therefore, as the bearers of evil they must be cut down and thrown into the fire. Tomorrow a declaration of authenticity.

America first lets do it

There is an evil that travels on two legs. Making their way into American public places at will, gunning down, or placing explosives packs, or driving vehicles, with one intent, looking for innocent people to kill. They call themselves Muslims, who practice a religion called Islam.

Scores of apologists emerge representing the American government. Past presidents themselves and their surrogates. Followed by religious groups, and Muslim propaganda experts  here in the United States. Who are the most unpatriotic of all people to walk the the sacred streets of these United States. All of them offering statements like, “We are sorry for the behavior of a few extremist. Including the majority of U.S. citizens, who follow the voices of those who yell the loudist. Causing them to join the minority, making them the over all majority, as Muslims celebrate silently for now the prevailing winds of Muslim acceptance.

The history of Islam clearly demonstrates that they are a people of divide and conquer. The greater their numbers become the greater the divide. Enabling Muslim to use their machinery of violence to conquer. Until survival by compromise is the only antidote available. When it gets to that point, a nation has been conquered. That’s the history of Europe with Great Britain being chief among those nations.

Muslims don’t have to be the governing powers in government. Although that is their goal. In the meantime a terror and intimidation will work. Having been intimidated, is what occurred when President Trump issued a travel ban on Muslim entering the U.S. from seven Muslim countries. They yelled such a ban will only serve as a recruiting mechanism for ISSl. Nonsense! ISSI has long announced that their invincibility would come from their ability recruit Americans. Train them overseas, and send them back to the United States to terrorize Americans.

Solution: Encourage President Trump to drain the swamp. Of the increasing numbers of Muslim military fortresses, called mosques, that are doting the sacred land scape of these magnificent United States. This is a war for survival, therefore, we must encourage the congress to pass legislation to deport Muslims to their birth countries. If born in the United States to a country of their ancestry. No doubt, President Trump would sign such legislation into law. Because he said, “That he recognizes that his responsibility is to keep America safe.” America will never be safe with Muslims being among us.

For tomorrow: Discover Islamic roots and determination.

When all goes wrong lie

A seismic shift of unprecedented magnitude had just rocked the universe.The murdered Christ had reached the mountains of Galilee. There He conferred upon the eleven the task of changing world dynamics. The people of all nations were to be Christianized. Through an unknown process called baptism. For this work of efficacy to disciple anyone it would have to be done through a hitherto strangeness. Suggesting that other deities existed beside their Messiah. They were to do this because He said that He had gained this authority from heaven itself. Through a shared union with two others. Scriptural text: Matthew 28:18-20.

Must have been mind boggling for the eleven, who had seen their anticipated traditions eradicated. Now this, what’s next they must have thought. Soon they would find out.

While in the mountains of Galilee with Jesus, members of the Roman guard found their way to the offices of the chief priests. And emotionally described the events that they had experienced. An earthquake that might have brought Jesus back to life. Caused by an angelic being which unsealed the tombs solid rock door. There stood Jesus! Dressed in white with bolts of lightning being emitted from His body. Then overhearing the angle telling the woman to get to the eleven and tell them that their Messiah lives.

In a state of panic the religious leaders met with the civil authorities. Determined to discredit any public perceptions that Jesus was alive. Knowing that their failure to discredit accounts of Jesus having escaped death by having been seen alive in public. It would mean the collapse of the Roman Empire. So they devised a sure proof plan that would secure the continuance of their empire and their power. Divine providence put it this way when they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave large sums of money to the soldiers. Saying, “Tell them, His disciples came at night and stole Him while we slept. And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.” So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. Scriptural texts: Matthew 28:11-15.

Governments dooms day-history by repetitive experiences

Daniel speaking to the community of nations, especially those who would rise to become global empires. In modern times Germany, Great Britain, Russia, United States and the Vatican City.

“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent stood before you and its form was awesome. This images head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, it’s legs of iron, its feet of iron and partly of clay. You watched while a stone was cut without hands which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the earth.” (Authoritative texts:Daniel 2:31-35).

The stone that will finally smote the remains of that image is Jesus Christ. There is no hope for for the community of nations. It was God who in ancient times established kingdoms or governments and then reduced them to nothingness. There are many scriptures that discuss that plight. Here are some of them but there are many more given to us by other Old Testament writers. But for now, we will turn to Isaiah as the nations were warned. “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity. I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore; I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place. In the wrath of the LORD of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger. (Authoritative texts:Isaiah 13:11-13).

“I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than then the golden wedge of Ophir!” Ophir a port city known for its gold reserves, 1 Kings 9:26-28, suggesting that the time comes when kingdoms are dissolved. Their history is memorialized and compared to gold by historians. But seen by God, as nothing more than a finite substance. With nothing memorial about them except departed glory. That they have no remembrance of because they have tasted the pill of death. Not even aware that their kingdoms have no existence beyond the time God allotted.

But there is an empire that refuses to die and will again haunt the world. This time with astounding success but for a time. Then it will join its predecessors, this time forever. It showed its ugliness during the lifetime of Jesus Christ. We know that empire as the Roman Empire that was glad to hand Jesus over to the Jews to be murdered Roman style by crucifixion.

John gives us this account. “And I saw one of his heads, as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast,” (Authoritative text:Revelation 13:3). That wounded beast unto death, but miraculously healed is suspected to be the revived Roman Empire. Today we know that beast as the European Union, a twenty eight member union. But to fit other scriptures, the EU will become a ten member confederation.

And so we turn to, Revelation 12:3, “And another sign appeared in heaven, behold a great fiery red dragon having seven heads, and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his head. The tens horns are thought to represent revived Roman Empire. Today’s European Union.

Briefly, the EU serving as that beast thought dead but revived for one last gala to terrorize the world. With Great Britain and the United States as part of the house of Israel. Confederated of mainly English speaking nations like Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. And they most likely will surrender their sovereignty to the again born Roman Empire. Leaving Russia perhaps, as the King of the North. Leaving the Arab Muslim world being dominated by the King of the South. Thought to be a ruler of Egypt. Finally we have Vatican City a state comprising of 107.8 acres, and thus, the world’s smallest state. Led by a Pope with no standing army playing major destructive geopolitical role on the world stage. Setting the final stage described in Isaiah 13:13, as followers, “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place. In the wrath of the LORD of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”

In the days to come all those kingdoms will be engaged in warfare. Involving political conspiracies and double crossings with one goal. Which is rule the world from Jerusalem a long sought after gem of Vatican City and the Arab Muslim nations. With the King of the North, and the Roman Empire wanting Jerusalem for political purposes because as the center of the earth. Control, and management of the world would best be facilitated from Jerusalem. Bringing to fruition a much talked about fear which is a one world government.

Perilous times lie ahead, and there is no changing what God has preordained. So do yourself a favor, study and familiarize yourself with the aforementioned because much has been left unsaid. And equally important prepare yourself spiritually, because it will be dangerous to be known as a Christ follower.

Threw it all, come to spiritual grips with the following. If indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious. Coming to Him, as a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious. You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. Therefore it is also contained in the scriptures, “Behold I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”

Therefore, to you, who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone,” and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. (Authoritative texts:1 Peter 2:3-8).

And there you have it, though abbreviated, “Governments dooms day-history by repetitive experience.” Because, they want to become the chief cornerstone in Zion. A distinction reserved for believers in Christ, with Him in Zion!

The Impious Huckster

A man once made a wooden statue of Hermes and took it to the market to sell. As no buyer came forward, he tried to attract one by shouting aloud that he was offering for sale a god who would confer blessings on the bystander.

“If he is all you say he is, why do you want to sell him? You would show more sense, if you kept him and profited by his help.”

“But it’s the ready money I need,” the man replied, “and it generally takes him a long time to put anything into one’s pocket.”

The man in this fable was one of those who will stoop to anything in their greed for gain and never give a thought to the gods. (source:Fables of Aesop-Penguin Classics-“The Impious Huckster”)

Seems that maybe Aesop touched upon something important. American capitalist, who will huckster false claims about any and all products in order to steal a dollar.

Just one of many reasons why the U.S. economy is in such a mess. With President Obama making Hermes like promises. But it should be expected because he is just the latest in the long line of presidential hucksters. Peddling non-christian economic cures through the false god of capitalism.

The ladder of prosperity is a difficult journey and it starts here. “And God spoke all these words saying … You will have no other gods before me … You will not make unto yourself any image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You will not bear false witness against your neighbor,” Exodus 20:1,3,4,16.

And it continues here, “These six thing does the LORD hate; yes, seven things are an abomination unto him. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. A heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief. A false witness that speaks lies and they that sow discord among the people, Proverbs 6:16-19.

Looking for work

A group of doctors at a global medical conference are bragging to each other about the state of medicine in their home countries.

A French doctor says, “Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of a man, put it another, and have him looking for work in six weeks.”

A German doctor says, “That is nothing, we can take a lung out of one person, put it another, and have him looking for work in four weeks.”

A Russian doctor says, “In my country, medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart of one person, put it in another, and have them both looking for work in two weeks,”

An American doctor, not to be outdone says, “You guys are way behind. We recently took a man with no brains out of Illinois, put him in the White House, and now half the country is looking for work.” (source: writer unknown-captured from the web)

Enemy at the doorstep

“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic,” President John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963.

But he (Jesus) answered and said, “Every plant which my Father has not planted shall be rooted up. Let them alone, they are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into a ditch,” Matthew 15:13-14.

The applications are many which of course includes politicians of every stripe. Seems as though they are a continuous stream of clowns falling into that ditch. To avoid that ditch, they need to take heed to the kind of plants God would have them be.

They will not, so God’s body of believers in and through Jesus Christ must help to uproot them. Then work as one body to plant God honoring plants.

Here are some plants that need to be uprooted. Muslims in America. Same sex marriages! Neither of which have a place in God’s America. That’s just two of many deadly plants that are killing America but perhaps the most deadly.

Muslims in America, and same sex marriages represent, President Kennedy’s, great enemies of truth because it’s a myth that is persistent and persuasive. And unrealistic to think that God will not uproot those plants Himself. But at a great cost to America because God’s punishments always have serious consequences.

Got U U R Mine

Jesus the worlds foremost historian, and thus the most reliable source for information. Had decided to cross a large body of water. While asleep, and storm suddenly took over and ravaged the seas. So sever was this storm that all on board the boat feared for their lives. Except for Jesus, who continued to sleep peacefully. His disciples finally disturbed him, and said, “Master our lives are at stake, do something!” Jesus got up, and calmed the winds and the sea and all returned to normal. But not for the disciples, who said among themselves, “What sort of a man is this, that even the winds and seas obey him?” (Scriptural texts:Matthew 8:22-25).

Perhaps still not over their amazement while docking their boat in the early morning hours. They were met by a city man living in the outskirts of the city. He was naked, and lived in a tomb within a cemetery. A man, who was controlled by demons for a long time.

Ah, the cemetery, a place that gives many an eerie feeling. Like maybe the dwelling place of zombies waiting to embody a corpse, when given permission by the underworld. An occurrence that few would admit to, except on Halloween.

Seeing Jesus, he cried out, fell down before him, and with a loud voice, “What have I to do with you Jesus, son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me!”

Because Jesus had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. Because it had often seized him, and he was kept under guard, bound with chains and shackles. But he had broken free  from what  imprisoned him, and was driven by the demon into the wilderness.

And on the heels of Jesus, the worlds second most formidable historian, and thus, the next most reliable source for information will speak after Jesus. And pay attention to what he says because its a truth that haunts the world. Giving us a historical record of demonic behavior which is forever preserved and feared.

Jesus asked him, saying, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion!” “Because many demons had entered him.”

And they begged Jesus that he would not command them to go into the abyss.

Now a herd of swine was feeding on the mountain. So they begged Jesus that he would permit them to enter them. And, Jesus permitted them. Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine. And the herd ran violently into the lake and drowned.

When those, who fed them saw what had happened, they fled, and told everyone in the surrounding area what had occurred.

The country, and the towns people assembled themselves. And went to see for themselves, what had happened. There they found Jesus, and the man from whom the demons had departed. He was sitting at the feet of Jesus. Clothed, and in his right mind, and they were afraid.

Those who had seen what occurred told them by what means that he who had been demon possessed was healed.

Then the whole multitude of the surrounding region of Gadarenes asked Jesus to depart from them. Because, great fear had seized them.

So Jesus got into his boat and was about to leave. But when the man, who had been freed from the demons saw what was happening. He begged Jesus that he might leave with him. But Jesus sent him away, saying, “Return to your house, and tell everyone what great things God has done for you.” And he went his way, and proclaimed through out the whole city what great things Jesus had down for him. (Scriptural texts:Matthew 8:26-39; with commentary throughout by this padre).

This discussion concludes a seven part discussion about a subject many shy away from. Perhaps because saying that supernatural foreign entities can dwell within our species without ones awareness. Creates an unimaginable and unacceptable phenomena. But not for this padre because I’ve had to deal with them.

They are responsible for every evil occurrence on earth. Ranging from behaviors, illnesses, suicides, accidents, weather, wars, and more. Though discussed during the course of this series this needs to be emphasized. Many things just happen by chance and are not the result demonic interference. How is it known? It’s known because Jesus said so, and was also discussed during this series. Final word, know your scriptures then you’ll know. Because, also shown and emphasized, Jesus is the answer.

USA-Paris France-Unconvential journey

As it was in Paris, France, 13 November 2015, so it was in America, when some days will live Soldier Readiness Processing Center, massacring more than three dozen American soldiers, leaving thirteen dead.

The  culprit, not completely human, the host of demonic influences. By his master Legion, who told Jesus that was his name meaning we are many, Mark 5:8-9. Same in culprits striking striking Paris, France, killing 130 and injuring 250 people. Among them an American student. With threats to strike the United States and any other nation waring against them.

Deception displays itself in different ways. For honored Muslim Nidal Malik Hasan, but disgraced army medic. The only thing army about him was that he bore a body resembling that of a human, clothed and tagged with appropriate army markings.

Unraveling in a Fort Hood court room for several weeks was an Article 32 hearing which had been convened to determine if the evidence of 45 counts of premeditated and attempted premeditated murder merits a court martial trial. And the evidence determined that the devils court martial should go forth. But Hasan has avoided trial. Over legal maneuvering, as whether his religious liberties had been violated under the Religious Freedom Act of 1993.

Eventually, Nidal Malik Hasan, was sentenced to death on, 28 August 2013. He has since that date written a letter to ISSI saying he wants to become a citizen of the Islamic state.

But the underling quest, by everyone, will be to determine why? But for the many, who want answers, there are no answers, apart from our Christian scriptures. Because of the following, “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God should shine on them,” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4.  Meaning for them the quest for answers will result in tears, sorrows and confusion. But for the few to whom the gospel has been unveiled, the  quest for answers, though sad, tearful and abounding with sorrow are available to be understood.

Floating around out there in the scriptural-sphere is a notion called a *covenant.* Understand the varied ramifications of that *covenant* and you’ll understand the tragedy at Fort Hood, Texas. Essential to ones understanding are all the scriptures referred to with this discussion and the previous one.

It’s that promised *covenant* that’s ailing the world today. So we’ll go on a journey into the world of the supernatural. Because the Jews and the Christians are the recipients of that *covenant.* Absent from inclusion, as partakers of the *covenant* are 2 plus billion Muslims. But who have a supernatural association with a being named Legion, Mark 5:9, who planted this notion in their minds. Saying, screw the Jews and the Christians. Just get out there and make that covenant yours. With a significant part of their war manual, the Qur’an, given to that end. And confirmed by the apostle Paul, who said, “Now we, brethren, as Isaac are the 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,” Galatians 4:28-29.

Which we, in 21st century America know all to well. With our own government becoming more willing to persecute Christians. In its early stages of persecution it’s to remove Jesus from the public domain. With increasing pressure from Muslims to make it a crime to criticize or denounce Islam. Hoping to soon see such expressions as hate crimes, as it is in France. For now, such expressions are classified as being racist. All such expressions are classified under the umbrella as a lack political correctness. Making it easy in the future to codify such expressions as crimes.

Without question, if Muslims were to have their place of prominence in the world. History clearly demonstrates their contributions to world history. But it was to be through the arena of the temporal functions, oil, as nation states, absent any spiritual component. In order to challenge Jesus Christ for possession of that  *covenant* Islam would have to have a religious component.

God’s promise to Ishmael, the father of Islam was given this supernatural endorsement. “And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold! I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and multiply him exceedingly; 12 princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation,” Genesis 17:20. Those 12 princes are the  12 sons of Ishmael, who formulated the 12 Islamaelite tribes. Spanning the the great land mass of the Middle East and Africa. And God has multiplied Ishmael exceedingly, as Muslim populate the world with a presence of more than 2 billion people. Making Islam the worlds most populace religion, if not now, within a short time. Overtaking Christendom for the first time, as the world most populace religion

But absent from that supernatural proclamation was any religious promise of prominence. Muslims greatness was to be confined to the mundane. So just how did a religious component come about from the Islamic world?

It occurred through histories most artistic cunning integrator of deception. Who is painted, as the one, who has deceived the whole world, Revelation 12:9. Who lost his standing in heaven (decided to become God) and came tumbling to earth with a contingent of followers, called angels. Becoming the one tagged as the Devil and Satan that ‘old serpent.’ Who seemed to always have a shape shifting ability. Satan was seen in heaven as a bright star. And could twist himself and become a serpent. And this shape shifting entity in the providence of time took up residency in the bodies of Muslims. Steering them to covet the *covenant* promised through his step brother Isaac. Scriptures teach that God, for good supernaturally, worked through Isaac to advance His promises. While the devil, supernaturally worked through Ishmael to do his evil. because it’s only through evil that the *covenant* can be made Islamic. And the Islamic prophet, Muhammad confirmed the Islamic intent to steal the *covenant,* when he said in his farewell speech in 632. “I was ordered to fight all men until they say, ‘there is no god but god but Allah.'” Actually it was the great deceiver of Revelation 12:9, who spoke through Muhammad. And who is responsible for Islamic mayhem playing upon the world stage today. And for this discussion, in particular the search for answers for what happened at Fort Hood and in Pairs France. Readers now have some of the answers.

With all that has been said there is no way that world affairs can be understood apart from the following. Which has been developed from Galatians 4:22-31. For it is written Abraham had two sons. The one by a bondwoman, (Hagar the mother of Ishmael and the mother of the Islamic world) and the other by a free woman (Sarai the mother of the Jewish and Christian world), verse 22.

But he, who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; (Ishmael the founding son of Islam) but he (Isaac) who was of the freewoman was by *promise,* verse 23.

Which descriptions are an allegory, for two covenants, the one from Mount Sinai, bearing children for bondage, who is Hagar, (Hagar the grandmother of 12 grandsons, who created the Islamic world), verse, 24.

This Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, (Arabia the center piece for Islamic worship) and answers to Jerusalem which now is in bondage with her children. Is there any doubt that the Islamic world is in bondage to Israeli dominance, verse 25? It’s why Muslims are committed to the destruction of Israel and the global eradication of the Jews.

But Jerusalem which is above is free which is the mother of us *us all,* verse 26. Jerusalem belongs to God above, But with divine intervention everything on this earth has and will revolve around Jerusalem, as the mother of Jews and Christians, *us all.* From which the children of the flesh, Muslims being denied the *covenant* of spirituality have, and will continue to contest it violently.

“For it is written! Rejoice, O barren, You who do not bear! (Sarai offered no apparent heir for the promises God made to Abraham) Break forth and shout, You who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children than she, who has a husband,” verse 27. Muslims populate the world with more 2 billion people while the Jews account for far less than 20 million people.

Now we, brethren, as Isaac are the children of *promise,*verse 28. What is the *promise?* God selected the Jews, as His chosen people. And promised the Jews greatness as a people. Through whom all nations would be blessed, or cursed, depending on their acceptance or rejection of the *promises* made to the Jews, Genesis 12:1-3

But as he (Ishmael) who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him (Isaac) who as according to the Spirit, even so it is now, verse 29. Every act of Muslim violence, like what occurred with the massacre at Fort Hood, and Paris France, is a prophetic fulfillment of verse 29. Islamic violence is designed to destroy Jews and the Christians, It’s the Islamic way to inherit the *promise.*

Nevertheless, what does the scriptures say? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman, verse 30.  Nevertheless that is the object of Islam through the grandchildren of Hagar, consisting of the 12 Ishmaelite tribes of Ishmael, the father of Islam. With Muslim clerics being determined to erase Isaac, and replace Ishmael or Islam, as the son of the *covenant* or the promise. This Islamic struggle to erase Isaac is the history of 9/11. Followed by the mayhem that occurred at Fort Hood, 09 Nov 09, and Paris France, 13 November 2015, with numerous others in between. It’s what the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is all about.

Our scriptures offer up the answers for a world being torn apart. It’s all about the struggle between Isaac the son of *promise* and Ismael the son of the *flesh.*  For those wanting answers for why Fort Hood and Paris France occurred, the answer have just been presented, Supported with the previous two discussions which requires an awareness of the power of Legion.

All of which are applicable for the understanding of Muslim violence wherever it erupts. And in particular, that of Syrian President Bashar Assad. And when, he’s gone, Syrian darkness will get darker. Which spells even greater brutality for the Syrian people. As has been the case, wherever a Muslim revolution takes place in this young 21 century. For Muslims, freedom and democracy are perceived through that projected by ISSI, Iran and countries like Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

With all that is being said, Paul concludes, So then brethren, we are not the children of bondwoman (Hagar and Islam) but of the free, verse 31, Isaac, Jacob, Joesph and his two sons Ephraim and Manasseh. Who are of the lineage of Abraham, to David, to Christ, reaching our modern world of Jews and Christians, who have the *covenant* of promise to defend. Because we are under threat by Muslims to be devoured, so that Islam can substitute itself as the covenant of promise.

Support our governors, who have told President Obama that they will not accept any Syrian refugees. Take it a step further, and prohibited the construction of any new Islamic mosques. As they serve as military fortresses from which they emerge to attack us.

As for existing mosques, fight to rid the nations of all of the Satan’s hideouts. The time is rip for such an attack. The people are ready, as is the United States Congress. More so is God Almighty, as He wants America to return to her Jewish Christian heritage. Enuf of political correctness and inclusiveness of all peoples as one cultural. Such concepts are designed to alienate Jews and Christians from the America given to us by God Almighty, Through our Jewish heritage through Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, David and Jesus Christ

Two women and a man

Impatience, the art of disastrous endings which we shall discover has had horrific consequences for the world community. The worse is yet to come, as it impacts you and me. Just how horrific, well, just stick around, and you’ll get a glimpse from the book of Revelation.

In a time before America ever was, lived a man named Abram and a woman named Sarai. It might have been a sunless gloomy day. Causing Sarai’s mind to wonder about what should be but wasn’t. So she approached Abram, and said, see now, the LORD has restrained me from bearing children. Saying, “Sleep with my maid, perhaps I shall obtain a child through her.” And Abram obeyed the voice of his wife, Sarai. (Scriptural texts:Genesis 16:1-2,NKJV).

They say to be human is to error. And error Abram did because he violated one of God’s prohibitions. You shall not commit adultery. (scriptural text:Exodus 20:14,NKJV). Teaching this lesson, as we shall see. Perceived innocent beginnings can have ugly endings. Sometimes hurting people that the perpetrator’s never intended.

And the rest is history, as Hagar gave birth to a son. And fled from Abram’s household out of fear. Unexpectedly an angel of the LORD found her by a spring of water in the wilderness. And said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where have you come from and where are you going?” She replied, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.” The angel of the LORD said to her, “Return to your mistress and submit yourself under her hand.” (Scriptural texts: Genesis 16:7-9, NKJV).

Little did Hagar know that she would be bringing into the world the curse of the centuries. Through two mind boggling pronouncements. As the angel revealed, “I will multiply your descendants exceedingly, so that they shall not be counted for the multitude.” Then the shocker, “Behold!” “You are with child, and you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael. Because the LORD has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man. His hand shall be against every man. And, every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” (Scriptural texts:Genesis 16:10-12, NKJV).

As history has marched across the centuries, Ishmael, the father of Islam has taught the the world what being wild really means. From the dawn of civilization spinning into our twenty first century with Europe having its own horrors that demonstrate Islamic wildness. Certainly not exempt is our own America which is still teetering from 9/11. What better example of wildness in the midst of ones brethren than the Syrian civil war. Where perhaps, we a have an ancient biblical prophecy unfolding before our eyes. “The burden against Damascus. Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.” (Scriptural text:Isaiah 17:1, NKJV).

With the entire Arab Spring highlighting their wildness in the presence of their brethren. With the West hoping that it would result in western civilized democracies. But in reality, their revolutions resulted in even greater Islamic wildness which will haunt the West with even greater pestilence. With the book of Revelation suggesting that Muslims will traumatize the world with creative madness. Hang in there, more to come!

World puzzle solved

Billions of dollars are earned by corporate conglomerate news makers. By projecting various world events, that will impact the general public. Done if it’s politically correct and not exclusive of anyone.

And who pumps a good part of those billions into corporate treasuries, none other than the consuming public. Anxious to understand world events out of need and curiosity, so as to be a jump ahead of whatever they are curious about. Because as the world goes, so goes how one exists.

So here’s a projection of world events certain to shape how people survive. It’s straight from the most reliable source available to us because it contains everything one needs to know about world events in order to survive. It comes from a source we call the Bible. But for most, the Bible is the most unreliable source for such information.

Guess what? From an ordained padre, the Bible is the most unreliable source for any information concerning survival. Guess again, as to why? Unfortunately there isn’t any dialogue provided between us to hear and respond to your whys. So I’ll just do my best to give you some whys.

And the woman, whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings (governments) of the earth. (scriptural text:Revelation 17:18). Which is really about verse nine which reads, “Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are the seven mountains on which the woman sits.”

Only one city sits on seven hills, and reigns over the governments of the earth. And that is Vatican City in Rome, Italy. To give you a heads up on this one, when the noun woman appears in our Bible. It is meant to be picturesque of people, both women and men, whom Christ has redeemed unto himself. Once redeemed, they constitute his church. They become the brides of Christ and Christ becomes the bridegroom.

Nothing that is said matters, unless it has a scriptural foundation. And what matters has been tucked away in a scripture and is centuries old. And goes like this, “For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you. And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you,” Isaiah 62:5. From that scripture, we have a picturesque description of an inseparable union between Jesus, and those he has redeemed, and that constitutes his church.

And from that marriage, God intended that his church would be the instrument to set the world straight, as to his expectations. But the bride of Christ, his church because of her infidelities became the worlds whore. Instead of becoming the worlds savior. With God passing this judgment upon his bride. “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill his purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, (apostate religions) until the words of God are fulfilled. (scriptural text:Revelation 17:17)

For whatever reasons, early Christians massed together and created the Roman Catholic church. It grew and became a massive world institution. But Catholicism managed, as the bride of Christ to become the primary focus of God’s anger. With her infamy, so aggravating to God Almighty that he gave her up as being a reprobate institution. As noted, with the last scripture cited. With that verse signaling that the world will get a lot worse before it gets better.

It’s just not Catholicism but apostate Protestantism that God will hold accountable. Because God is no respecter of people, and therefore, of institutions. (scriptural text:Romans 2:11). And because, the church has divorced her self from God, this great truth is absent among most people and their governments. “Let each of you look out not for his own interest, but also for the interest of others.” (scriptural text:Philippians 2:4). Failure to do so fosters greed which is very divisive destroying people and their governments.

A world absent of brides and inspired by the bridegroom, is a world doomed. So then, it’s not the Bible that isn’t reliable but rather the bridegroom’s brides, his church.

So if one gets their act together as a faithful bride of Christ, the best source to know what’s driving your world and ones ability to survive comes from ones Bible. And there you got it, I trust, with your whys cataloged. As to why corporate news makers, and everything in between, can’t give one a reliable jump start about world trends. And unfortunately today, most churches must be included. Because they are about empire building; along with being critical of churches, who are not associated with their can of beans. So save some money, and wasted time, by mastering your Bible. Know your Bible, know yourself and your world. And you’ll be a jump ahead, as to how to exist.

Ladies of angelic communications

Their leader crucified by the Romans and the Jews. Leaving his disciples distraught and defeated. Certain that their revolution was over and certain that they too would be persecuted by the Romans. Wondering if the High Priest Caiaphas got it right, when he advised the Jews that it was expedient that one man should die for the people. (cp John 18:14). Being rather certain that with Jesus no longer being a threat to Judaism. Then most Jews would return to the sole practice of Judaism. Making blood sacrifices on the temple alter as did their forefathers. Doing so in anticipation of the promised messiah.

No doubt Jesus was unhappy with their attitude and behavior during the time He laid dead in His tomb. As we shall see, He dealt harshly with them perhaps around the dinner table.
In the meantime, while all this was going on, what were the disciples doing? Where they hatching a plan to rescue Jesus? Not likely because we know that Judas betrayed Jesus in exchange for money. It’s a reasonable assumption that the others had mounted their camels  and planned to race out of town. Except for Peter, who stayed around trying to blend in with the community. But that didn’t work because he ended up denying that he ever knew Jesus. (cp John 18:17;25;27). This is a little more that we know about Peter. A group of people and officers made a fire to shelter themselves from the cold. With Peter standing with them enjoying the warmth of the fire.

With Jesus standing nearby the high priest asked him about his disciples. Jesus ignored the question but responding said, “I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in the synagogues and in the temple where the Jews always meet. And in secret, I have said nothing.” Perhaps that was his response because he wanted to give Peter a chance to respond to the following. Peter didn’t take the bait. So Jesus said,” Why do you ask Me? Ask those who have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they know what I said.” Again, Peter remained silent. (scriptural texts:John 18:19-21). Peter could have replied, Jesus said, “I am Peter and upon this rock He’s going to create a new institution called a church. And not even hell itself will prevail against it.” (scriptural text:Matthew 16:18).

The drama had ended Jesus was dead. With the civil, and religious authorities certain that the revolution that was tearing their world apart had died with Jesus. But they were wrong because Peter and the others would regroup and expand the Christ revolution globally.

Who was responsible for this turn around by a defeated group of men? None other than the women closest to Jesus. It started this way on a Monday. The two Mary’s not in denial of who Jesus was, or trying to blend with the towns people. Arriving first thing in the morning at His tomb with good intentions which were to give Jesus a Jewish burial. Upon arriving at his tomb they were shocked to discover that the huge stone that had sealed the tomb had been rolled away. Entering the tomb they became frightened because they were not alone. But the young man there said, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! Go tell His disciples including Peter. Tell them that that they’ll see Jesus in Galilee, as Jesus had said to you.

They quickly fled from the tomb trembling and amazed. As they traveled they said nothing to anyone out of fear. It seems that Mary Magdalene might have recognized that young man in the tomb as being the risen Jesus. They were special to each other as Jesus had cast seven demons from within her. Composed now, she knew what see had to do which was tell his disciples whom she found distraught and weeping. Mary jubilantly announced Jesus is alive! Continuing with her jubilance, she said, “I’ve seen Jesus!” They didn’t believe her thinking that she was delusional. Because, it was was apparent that Mary had been his adviser.

Later Jesus appeared in another form to two other disciples as they walled into the country. Those two went and shared their experience with the others. Echoing through out the universe for all time is this phrase, “But they did not believe them either.”

Later Jesus appeared to the eleven as they sat at a table. Suspecting His words were more of an angry annoyance than a gentle admonishment. Because it’s recorded that Jesus rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. With that off His chest Jesus told them to get busy preaching the gospel world wide. (cp Mark 16:1-15).

The fate of evil Five Supremes

Judgment by five Supreme’s who bowed to the whims of powers beyond their awareness. Because of that human cognitive sensing is altered inhibiting rational reasoning. Whereby a couple being televised looks at his male partner referring to him as his wife. Not long ago such a statement would have caused that couple to be declared miserably sick. And being, a threat to the normal functioning of society. Today it’s the converse! Why? It’s esoteric and soon to be discussed. For now a discussion about the cause and effect of the miserably sick.

The one who is going to set the record straight declared, “Professing to be wise they became fools, and changed the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts to dishonor their bodies among themselves. Who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason, God gave them up to vile passions. For even the women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of woman, burned in their lusts for one another, men with men committing what is shameful and receiving the penalty of their error which was due.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness.” Romans 1:22-29a.

Exacerbating lawlessness through out the nation. Is this what you really want for America? “Maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil mindedness. They are whispers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving and unmerciful,” Romans 1:29b-31.

A warning to those who know better. “Who knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same, but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:32.

Bringing about a just destiny for the five Supreme’s. And all who welcomed their ruling by defying God Almighty and siding with Satan.  It is written, “Let death seize them; let them go down alive into hell. For wickedness, is in their dwellings and among them,” Psalms 55:15.
