“For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!'” Then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And, they shall not escape. See 1 Thessalonians 1:3.

Times are scary and dangerous all doubters are encouraged to search the global news outlets for convincing evidence. Unscrample them and determine how vulnerable you are to fall victim to one, more or many of them. The reality is they are intensifying exponentially.

Is there hope. U betcha! It’s in Jesus Christ! I for one, with many others will miss the worse of them.

You can join us. You got to understand how you became you. So we’ll start with what the Apostle Paul had to say about it. “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; (note) and your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who will do it.” See 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24.

The real you. You are special because you were created in the very image of God Almighty. At the dawn of human existence God created a man, as a three part being. From the Bible we know this man as Adam.

There was a time on earth, when God had a problem. There wasn’t anyone to manage what He had created. See Genesis 2:5c. So God, took some dirt from the ground, and created a being that was different from everything else He had made. The historical record is as follows. And the LORD God formed, man from the dust of the ground. A lifeless shell, a body, then God breathed His breath into his nostrils. And he, became a living being. See Genesis 2:7. That lifeless shell, ones body which houses our five senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. It’s the breath that God breathed into His created being that gave him his awareness of God. With the ability to communion intellectually with his Creator which Paul identified as ones spirit.

The Psalmist informs us that a time comes that God will take away ones breath and they become dust. See Ecclesiastes 12:7. It’s a process known as death. Paul informs us that death is our inheritance. Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because all sinned. See Romans 5:12. It’s advisable to pay attention to Psalmist, who said, “Teach us to number our days that we might apply our hearts unto wisdom,” Psalms 90:12.

From the Thessalonians scriptural portion of this discussion the referenced order is, spirit soul and body. What remains is to understand ones soul. It’s the part of us that houses ones mind, will and emotions. It’s what the Bible references as the old man. It’s the soul that gets one into trouble. Note, “put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to deceitful lusts.” See Ephesians 4:22. The soul conceives and ones senses becomes the executioner. The whole process prohibits one from communing with Jesus, who is God.

In case it’s unknown, as to how to commune with God, here’s how. It reverses all the blockages that prohibited communion with our Creator. “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. You will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” See Romans 10:9-10.

The voice said, “Cry out!” And he asked? “What shall I cry”? “All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, because the breath of the LORD blows upon it; surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.” See Isaiah 40:6-8.

“Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever. Because, all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man, as the flower of the grass. And its flower falls away, but the word of the LORD endures forever.” See 1 Peter 1:23-25.

the kill

 

From Harvey to Irma, we in the states had gotten a taste of ruination imposed by culprit’s, who held no personal grudges against its targets.

That’s not the case, when it comes to North Korea. Their campaign to destroy
the United States had its birth from Korean strong man, Kim Jong-un’ grandfather, Ko Young-hui.

As we all know, the world community is mostly happy, that for now, war seems to have been tabled between North Korea and the United States.

And as, we know, Trump, did what he does best which is beating the drums of his own praises. Promising that N.K., will become denuclearized delegating the details to his Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. After all the Trump bragging, “I’m the best ever.” Seems like Trump’s bragging has amounted to nothingness. Just like his presidency. So the longer Trump remains in office the following is more likely to be the American experience.

North Korean, tyrant, Kim Jong-un is the epitome of perfect evil. And evil, will never surrenders its arsenal of maximum destruction and death. Unless it has something of equal or greater capabilities.

And, if that’s the case, North Korea will strike by pulsating the United States with exact precision targeting. No warning, no mess! Just the disabling of electronic girds. Which could disable, and destroying the nations military apparatus. Technically known as an Electromagnetic Pulse or EMP blast.

From the distant past a bell rings true

Two significant events occurred in modern times. The reestablishment of the Jewish state in 1948. And, the recent relocation of the United States capital in Israel to Jerusalem. Two of several events that had to occur in order for the world to end, as we know it today. The others will be discovered during the course of this discussion.

Right from the beginning the God plan for humanity was corrupted by unprecedented evil. Through out history evil has managed up end the unprecedented evil with even greater evil. Until the end of time, as we know it.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Who predict the opposite of the aforementioned. Counterbalanced by former British Prime Minister, who writes about the fragility of the world community of nations. However both commissions see money and technology, as the worlds best hope for survival and prosperity. Time which is knocking at our door will determine which scenario prevails.

Our world is in such a mess despite rays of hope because Christendom today is more entrepreneurial in scope than anything else.

John in the book of Revelation said this more than once. Those who have an ear, hear what is said about the church and the future.

Perhaps the church at Laodicea is most picturesque of our 21 century church. Where the following was said, “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write. These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God. I know your works, you are neither cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, neither cold or hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. I will vomit you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich and have become wealthy and have need of nothing. Do you not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked.” Revelation 3:14-17.

So many churches, not all thank God, meet the criteria of the above verses. Clearly the scriptures teach that they will be held accountable for their failures. While the true, and faithful of God’s churches, they represent our only hope national and global stability.

But the challenge still remains for all to heed. Because Christ is saying, I love the church. Acknowledge My rebuke, and correct your ways in a zealous way, verses 18-19. Hear with your ears, the prophetic revelations for tomorrow from the distant pass, verses 20-22.

When trying to understand swirling global events, it’s important to recognize the historians, who wrote about the then, now and future. Just like the the ancients of yesterday, we had a then, a now, and a future. All this should be looked at as a chronicle of prophetic history and a history yet to be made. It is best understood  from what God calls the Word of God.

The Bible should be thought of as a unique collection of literature. Written by ordinary people like us, but over a span of at least fifteen centuries. Representing a host of different cultures. With very different agenda’s, and considering the varying times that separated their lives. Yet they were able to put together a prophetic story that reverberates with stunning accuracy. Accomplished because all scripture is given by the inspiration of God, 2 Timothy 3:16. Inspiration from the Greek,”theopneustos” meaning “God breathed.”

Making our scriptures as authentic as if the Almighty had written them as He did with the Ten Commandments. Concerning the commandments, “Moses broke the commandments, and God summoned him and said, “Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write on these tables the words that were on the first tables, which you broke,” Exodus 34:1. Sacred truths to govern the lives of the ancients. But we of the church age, are beneficiaries of there truths, as moral standards only.

The day will come, when God will exit Christians, as a presences on this earth. See 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. And, the Jews will have their Temple reestablished in Jerusalem. And will practice, all sacrificial obligations of Temple worship. Which includes strict compliance with appropriate consequences, for failure to adhere to the demands of the Ten Commandments.

Here’s a brief timeline from creation till now. The intended purpose for the birth of Jesus was to fulfill the covenant promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The establishment of the Kingdom of God upon this earth. With Jesus being the promised Messiah and their King.

The Jews rejected any such proposition. See, John 19:12;15 which reads, “From then on Pilate sought to release Him, but the Jews cried out, saying, ‘If you let this Man go, you are not Caesar’s friend. Whoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar.'” They cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him! Crucify Him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar!”

Such a rejection represents one histories most colossal mistakes. Resulting in another game changer by God the Father. Sending Jesus to the cross to meet His death. Postponing the establishment of His kingdom to some time in the future.

That future was revealed by the prophet Daniel, wrote wrote, “Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city.” See Daniel 9:24a. Seventy weeks represent weeks of years or 490 years. Now drop down to verse 26a which reads, “And after sixty two weeks Messiah shall be cut off….” Meaning Christ was crucified sometime during the sixth week or during the 483rd  year of my timeline. Those 62 weeks represent 483 years. Leaving one week or seven years remaining.

Reviewing yesterday’s discussion might be helpful for your understanding because of the complexity of the subject matter being discussed today.

A persuasive charismatic person will broker a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. But he will break that treaty. In the middle of that last week or 3 1/2 years into the treaty. See Daniel 9:27.

As aforementioned above, the church age will have ended. That period of time has been tagged as the the day of the Lord. It’ll be a time of horrific turmoil and suffering. Such as has never been experienced by humanities tumultuous history.

When will it happen? It’ll occur when Israel, and the Palestinians agree to a peace treaty. That’ll start humanities troublesome times. Those troubles will be exacerbated, when the treaty is broken.

There will be a war of unmatched global destruction. That is when Christ will intervene ending the war that is about to destroy all of humanity. As the war concludes Jesus will establish His long promised kingdom on this earth. For both Jews and Gentiles, who by His life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension know what it means to be a part of His family. It’s best expressed by reading, Romans 10:9-10.

Take notice of a seemingly out of place clause found in, Daniel 9:26, “But not for Himself.” It’s all about choice. Humanity has always collectively said no to God’s planned destiny for us. Finally enuf is enuf. Because, as said, humanity will continue to go its independent way. Towards ultimate and complete self annihilation. His kingdom come on earth is what. “But not for Himself,” is what it’s all about. This padre, a renegade from entrepreneurial Christendom prays you’ll be part of His global community. It’s not automatic. It’s by individual choice.

What you have read is very complicated. This padre is available to teach more about the subject matter. Small gatherings from individual homes works best. For contact, use the make a comment link.

hodgepodge of nothingness or somethingness

How did it happen that the Second World War was won? Was it because the United States entered the war? It happened because America held to this underlying principle. “You are My witnesses,” says the LORD, ‘and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He, before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the LORD, and besides Me there is no savior.'”

From that collective conscience emerged the worlds greatest killing machine for the defeat of tyranny in defense of life and liberty and justice for all. Stated this way, “The archers have bitterly grieved him, shot at him and hated him. But his bow remained in strength, and the arms of his hand were made strong by the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob.”

Remember from previous discussions how Jacob emerged upon the world scene? Providing for a world order that is with us to this very day. Giving birth to a lad named, Ephraim, or Great Britain and her Commonwealth of Nations. And his older brother, Manasseh, or the United States. A history you got to know in order to understand world events today.

Continuing with the hands made strong by hands of the Mighty God of Jacob. This must be known, Israel is the focus of world turmoil yesterday, today and tomorrow. And all, whether individuals, or nations will be drawn into this bitter turmoil. Working to make extinct those who support Israel. There is a new tomorrow fast approaching where to be anti-Semitic and anti-Christian will be the prevailing ideology for the elimination of global hostility and global turmoil.

As during the second world war, American might ended the war! So in this age of unconventional war, compared to the European great war. This will turn the tables in favor of the Jews and Christians. Recognition that, “From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel. By the God of your father, who will help you. And by the Almighty who will bless you. with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breast and of the womb.”

“The blessings of your father have excelled the blessings of your ancestors. Up to the utmost bound of thew everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him, who was separate from his brothers.”

What you have read is the America of yesterday. The challenge is to return America to her place godly prominence. Better understood when the other discussions of the past several days have been read.

the authenticator

Some think that Muslims are the bearers of bad fruit that must be cut down and cast into the fire. See Mathew 7:15-20. Then from the man, who saw it coming, and so announced it, “And the angel of the LORD said to her, … and you shall call his name Ishmael,” Genesis 16:11. Who would become the father of Islam. Aptly christened with this truth. And he shall be a wild man, his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presences of all his brethren. See Genesis 16:12. Proof positive from global observations. A global menace! With the sons and daughters of Muslims spreading Islamic evil wherever a breath is breathed. Because the angel of the LORD said to the boys mother, “I will multiply your seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for the multitude,” Genesis 16:10.

If Muslims in America were forthcoming they would publicly announce their design for America. Which is to have the flag of Islam flying over the White House. And that they thirst to punish non-Muslims in America, whom they accuse of being the worlds foremost criminal element. Because of the havoc they have fostered upon Muslim lands. Often through their proxy government Israel.

It is said that the Islamic Thinkers Society in New York City. Is a society waiting for the right time to rally Muslims to the streets. Who will then demand the establishment of Sharia law across America. Which they think is the surest way to remake the United States into a Islamic state.

a buggy ride worth taking

When the hoof hits it the ground, the buggy gets going. The Christ buggy never got going because what is to follow wasn’t for you or me. Instead what is to follow implement those instructions given by Jesus. Experiencing failure don’t be discouraged, or think that you have proof that this Jesus stuff is misleading, thus hypocritical.

We find Jesus saying, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also, and greater works than these he will do because I go to the Father.” And, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” See John 14:12-14.

Concerning verses thirteen and fourteen. Succinctly, Jesus said it to his disciples in preparation for the His kingdom on this earth. When the Jews rejected Jesus, the Father prepared for a new age, our age. Forfeited also was that all inclusive, “Ask anything of me and I will do it.” Creating lots of disillusionment through out Christendom.

What was not covered was the Christ statement concerning works. Jesus did grant His disciples or apostles miracle working wonders. It’s recorded in Acts 2:43 in this manner, “Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.”

Here is one of them. It’s nine in the morning, and time to head to the temple for morning prayers. As they approached the temple a certain man crippled from birth was being carried, and placed at the temple entrance. He was there every day begging for money.

As Peter, and John were about to enter the temple he begged for money. Both men looked directly at him with Peter saying, “Look at us.” The crippled man focused his sight upon them expecting a handout. But instead of offering a handout, Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I’ll give to you. Authoritatively Peter commanded, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”

With compassion, Peter took him by the right hand and lifted him up. And immediately, his feet and ankle bones received strength. Being able to stand he started leaping. Able now to walk he entered the temple with them. Creating quite a raucous as he continued to walk and leap while praising God. See Acts 3:1-8.

Because healing wonders were not all inclusive like the Jesus phrase, “Ask anything of Me and I will do it.” Healing can occur today but is not a gift randomly made available.

north korea u s words of war

From the barbarianism of Islam discussed yesterday to the rogue regime of North Korea today. The world is becoming more unsettled and dangerous. Here’s why!

Therefore, just as through one man sin, entered the world, and death through sin, and death spread to all men because all sinned. See Romans 5:12.

Explanations for understanding.

And the LORD God said to the woman, “What have you done? The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” See Genesis 3:13.

Enter world conflicts individually, families, communities and reaching the global community at all levels from diseases, deadly weather patterns and their consequences. and now nuclear  warfare between nation states.

In its grip right now is North Korean dictator, Kim Joug-un, who viciously growled against the United Nations sanctions led by the United States. Considered to be the most nation crippling sanctions ever exercised against a nation. With both China and Russia concurring. Why? Maybe because the world body clearly understands that war on the Korean peninsula would erase millions of innocent lives from nuclear radiation alone. With madness having no gauge for rationality. Therefore, making China and Russia vulnerable to Pyongyang insanity.

All this has captured the attention of global media outlets because the Pyongyang regime had once again threatened the United States. Bringing this response from another character of questionable rationality, President Donald Trump. Who warned the Korean dictator not to threaten the United States again with a nuclear attack. Or, “Fire and fury would occur like the world has never seen.”

Such a statement sent a barometer of fear echoing through the minds of those who remembered, President Harry Truman’s warning to the Japanese government after nuking Hiroshima, 06 August 1945. “Declaring that that if the imperial government of Japan failed to agree to the terms of surrender that they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, like of which has never been seen on this earth.” On, 09 August 1945, the United Stated nuked Nagasaki ending World War Two.

Unfortunately brutality only respects brutality. So perhaps Trump was echoing Truman’s warning as a twenty first century American response to brutality.

Responding to Trump the Pyongyang government said, “We’re mulling a strike on the, ‘Air pirates of Guam.'” In Guam, the United States has a naval base. North Korea made it clear that they’d specifically attack American strategic bombers there.

wars won and lost

Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven, and said, “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons. He removes governments and raises up governments. 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 is with Him” See Daniel 2:19-22.

The war room.

Then Micaiah said, Therefore hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD siting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by on His right hand and on His left. And the LORD, “Who will persuade Ahab to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead?” So one spoke in this manner, and another spoke in that manner.

Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD, and said, “I will persuade him.”Then the LORD said, “In what way?” I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.” And the LORD said, “You shall persuade him, and also prevail. Go out and do so.”

Therefore look! “The LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the LORD has declared disaster against you.”See 1 Kings 22:19-23.

Defiance in the presences of authority.

Now Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near and struck Micaiah on the cheek, and said, “Which way did the spirit from the LORD go from me to speak to you?” And Micaiah said, “Indeed you shall see on the day when you go into the inner chamber to hide!” So the king of Israel said, “Take Micaiah, and return him to Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the king’s son; and say, “Thus says the king put this fellow in prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and water of affliction, until I come in peace.”

But Micaiah said, “If you ever return in peace, the LORD has not spoken by me.” And he said, “Take heed, all you people!” See 1 Kings 22:24-28. And so it was, the king of Israel was slain in battle.

Now a certain man drew a bow at random, and struck the king of Israel between the joints of his armor. So he said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn around and take me out of the battle, for I am wounded.” The battle increased that day; and the king was propped up in his chariot, facing the Syrians, and died at evening. The blood ran out from the wound onto the floor of the chariot. See 1 Kings 22:34-35.

The question begging for an answer. Are modern day wars being influenced supernaturally? With God sitting on His thorn with His host of heaven beings standing with Him. Asking a similar question to this one, “Who will persuade the king of Israel to go to Ramoth Gilead that he may be defeated?” Take for example the United States 16 year in Afghanistan with victory seemingly impossible. Or, the American led coalition of nations war against terrorism. As the coalition chases ISSI globally, and being unable to defeat its elusive enemy. So has a spirit stepped forward at Gods beckoning to defeat one side or the other?

Making Daniel’s night vision as relevant today, as it was 2023 centuries ago.

trend carefully

Truly the light is sweet, and it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun; but if a man lives many years and rejoices in them all, yet let him remember the days of darkness, for they will be many. All that is coming is vanity.

Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth; walk in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes; but know that for all these God will bring you into judgment. Therefore remove sorrow from your heart, and put away evil from your flesh, for childhood and youth are vanity. See Ecclesiastes 11:7-10.

perilous times

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

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

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

Warfare has changed.

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

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

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

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

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

Paul refers to Ishmael as the son of the flesh and not the son of promise which was Isaac. Muslims refuse to accept that Ishmael isn’t God’s rightful heir for the establishing God’s sovereign rule through out the world. Right up to the time that Allah himself comes to establish his eternal kingdom on this earth.

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

b careful of what u say cas it might haunt u

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Histories greatest mistake

This happened a long time ago but it’s relevance has not been diminished through the centuries. But it’s acceptance has been eroded because of an institution called the church. Such a shame but a truth. So we have to get around that by showing what was destined to be for the welfare of humanity.

The Jews are God’s preferred, and preserved people through out history. Here’s a piece of their history, “He found him in a desert land and in a wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye,” Deuteronomy 32:10. As a preferred people over all other people is very hard for most to accept.

With an open mind and with careful study, you’ll be persuaded, as the rational is developed to accept its truth. In order to understand world affairs, you just have accept what has been said. To become turned off to such an assertion will leave you blinded to the understanding of disastrous world events unfloding today. Running the gamut of economics to world terror and everything in between. Preserved because the Jews were destined to be the recipients of His kingdom on earth.

This was to occur with the birth of Jesus. The covenant promises made to Abraham then passed on to Isaac and Jacob. See Genesis 12:1-3; Genesis 35:10-12. But the Jews rejected Jesus as their Messiah. With this recording, “He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him,” John 1:11. Postponing that promised kingdom. Which would usher in this historic event, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believed in His name, John 1:12. That applied only to the Jews, as an act of His mercy. Because the Jews were still under the law and His covenant promises. After the crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus from the dead, another historic event occur. Recorded in John 1:13, “Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

And the world community has, and is, experiencing grief by default of that historic error by the Jews. It was the original intent of God that the Jews would be the light of salvation to non-Jewish peoples or Gentiles. Recorded as follows, “…; I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, that You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.” Meaning it was to be Christ working through the Jews for its accomplishment.

The adventure continues tomorrow.

Octopus lady verses the man of concrete

Which is worse, a president with feet planted in concrete around recognizable ideologies? Which seems to be the way of the Trump presidency.

Or a president, who seems to have octopus like arms. So that he/she could wrap themselves securely around as many contrasting and conflicting ideologies as possible? Which seems to have categorized the Obama presidency. And probably, would have categorized the presidency of Hillary Clinton had she won.

And with Trump setting a new benchmark already, as the oldest person ever to serve as president of these United States. When Trump was inaugurated, he was 70 years of age. Hillary was sixty nine, when Trump was inaugurated. So maybe we’ll see her make a third presidential attempt at age seventy three. Verses Trump, who’ll be seventy four. It’ll be a campaign of the octopus lady verses the man of concrete.

Ever wonder if there is a mysterious force, who seems to be unidentifiable? Who is responsible for an evolving warfare tagged cyber warfare. Swaying voters to elect a particular candidate, who would be more favorable or compatible with a particular political ideology. The U.S. government thinks so, and they’ve concluded that it was the Russians. Now the Germans are screaming that the Russians are trying to influence their election process.

So what’s up or who care’s? We all know that nothing is safe. Anything can be hacked? So why should governments think that they are immune to such attacks? They know that they aren’t immune. They just scream, one suspects to muster citizen support for themselves.

Talking about a mysterious force able to sway public reaction one way or the other. Got one for you. This mysterious force was revealed by a guy named Daniel. Here’s what he said. “And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings,” Daniel 2:21a,b). How does God do this? By the following, “He gives wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to those who have understanding,” Daniel 2:21c.

Does God do this for every presidential candidate elevated to the American presidency? Maybe and maybe not. But if Donald Trump’s presidency is to succeed, this is the formula he’s going to need, “He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him,” Daniel, 2:22.

Overcoming Trump or Clinton

What we know about today’s world is occurring because of a Jew, named Jacob and later renamed Israel, Genesis 48:16. Who served God, by anointing his grandsons, Ephraim and Manasseh with his birthrights. Inherited rights of passage from Abraham, Issac to Israel as a nation. And the English speaking world, who profess an association with Jesus Christ. Usually referred among us, as our Judeo-Christian heritage. With the United States rising up to be God’s crown jewel among the English speaking community of nations.

Jesus Christ in one of His sermons preached that this crown jewel of His would, “Be the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden, Matthew 5:14. Because America, would serve as a lighted lamp on a lampstand. The preaching of Jesus ignited Americans through out the land to be a house for all Americans to emulate. Determined that the American of devotion to Christ would serve as a light to the community of nations. With the ultimate purpose that all Americans would share in this experience. With the community of nations seeing the nations goodness in all its endeavors as glorifying God the Father. And that became the heart of American foreign policy. Within the United States it became known as American exceptionalism. That indeed is the best of both worlds. A world that struggled to adhere to the strength provided by the living Word of God, Jesus Christ, but did its best. Far different from today’s world, where there is no such struggle. Other doing just the the opposite. And the opposite, wears many different destructive faces. The worst of both worlds.

Here is a description of our living word. “And He (Jesus) was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood (Christ body); and his name is called THE WORD OF GOD, Revelation 19:13. Notice the present tense of the verb is, to be, signaling that Christ is alive today. And alive in each, and every breathing body on this earth. But dormant in those outside the saving grace of the His body dipped in blood. But alive in those cleansed, by His dipped body in blood. As declared in 1 Corinthians 6:19, “What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, and you are not your own. And confirmed by, Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Truly the best of both worlds because it creates the ability to understand both worlds. The world of God and the world, as the Living Word puts it, the flesh.

And families, and their governments are experiencing the crushing crush of the flesh, as signaled by Jeremiah. “Thus says the LORD, cursed be the man that trusts in man and makes flesh his strength. Whose heart departs from the LORD. He shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see, when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land not inhabited,” Jeremiah 17:5-6. The very worse of both worlds, as the nation becomes a stagnant cesspool.

“He shall be like a shrub in the desert..” Meaning an inability to discern the horrible events fast approaching America and the community of nations. but discerned by the awakened body of believers by the Holy Spirit.

Here are some of the ways in which humanity is cursed. By putting their trust in the flesh which Results in a deliberate departure from God and the consequences.

For decades, the foundation of the United States was laid through its youth.There was a time when the Bible was placed prominently on a teachers desk in public schools. Along with the Ten Commandments, also prominently observable. Not far from those sacred duos was the American flag. The pledge of allegiance to the flag, was by design more to God, then state. Celebrated by the class in unison reciting the Lord’s Prayer. And of course, those students continued to honor God, family and country. By making sure that that quartet of symbolism was prominently observable in public places, most noticeably in court houses. Today it’s all nonexistent, except for a voluntary pledge to the flag and a moment of silence.

For such devotion the nation flourished, as prophesied by Jeremiah. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. For he be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when heat comes. But its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit,” Jeremiah 17:7-8.

Placing blame for the Schenecker family tragedy falls upon everyone in authority associated with government. For not standing up to the forces that would deny students, and adults the sacred and powerful symbolism associated with the aforementioned discussion. Perhaps if Beau and Calyx would have observed the commandment that said, “Honor your father and mother that your days might be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, Exodus 20:12.” Certainly Moms and kids aren’t perfect, so perhaps the phrase in the Lord’s prayer, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen!” Matthew 6:12-13. And if Julie Schenecker, their mother, had observed often in public places, the commandment, “Thou shall not kill,” Exodus 20:13. The family might have avoided an unbearable tragedy and remained intact.

If you are a student of our scriptures, then you know God places a lot of confidence in symbolism. Because of there immemorial effect. As noted in a recent posting, “Stones from Jordan, 30 August 2013”, from which came this scriptural reference. “That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you might fear the LORD your God forever,” Joshua 4:24.

So the ultimate blame falls upon us, the people alive through the Holy Spirit, for allowing the destruction of our Judea-Christian heritage. Then compounded by allowing the destruction of God’s symbolism’s in public places.

Maybe enough people will get mad and demand a better America. Returning our heritage and symbolism’s to there proper place in American culture. The choices are simple it’s either the curses of Jeremiah 17:5-6, or the harvest of Jeremiah 17:7-8.

Fancy you said the fox the light of the world to a gathering of monkeys

A monkey made a great impression by dancing before an assembly of animals, who elected him their king.

The fox was jealous. Noticing a snare with a piece of meat in it, he took the monkey to it and said, “Here is a choice tidbit that I found. Instead of eating it myself. I have kept it for you as perquisite of your royal office, so take it.”

The monkey went at it and was caught in the snare. When he accused the fox of laying a trap for him, the fox replied. “Fancy a fool like you, friend monkey, being king of the animals!!!”

People who attempt things without due consideration then suffer for it and get laughed at with their bargain. (Source: Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-Fools Die For Lack Of wisdom)

In one way or another, most Americans were caught up in the snare of the nations financial dilemmas. Which is still running the table in strange ways. Hundred of thousands of jobs are being created. But those jobs pay less than they did before the nations financial meltdown. But there are exceptions with the super rich are getting richer and the super to poor getting poorer. And everyone in the middle is struggling. It’s even reaching across the oceans infecting financial stability around the globe. Proving an old axiom, “As America goes so goes the world.”

Americans should make careful retrospection of where we are going individually and collectively as a nation. Because America has ridden the crust of the horizon as a blessed nation by God Almighty. Where the nation has experienced the bounties of Psalms 1:3, “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” Maybe God is with drawing his blessed hand of prosperity from the people and its nation. Allowing the leaf to wither and its prosperity to die for lack of water. Because, “I the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings,” Jeremiah 17:10.

The welfare of the nation has always been in the hands of our Lord’s body of believers who make up His church. Perhaps it is time for all of us to take heed to the following. And by so doing contribute to the saving of the nation. “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent,” Revelation 3:19. It’s just a knock away, “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me,” Revelation 3:20. Can you hear what the Spirit is saying unto the churches? Revelation 3:22.

Our great nation is in serious trouble not just economically because of the Wall Street and banking debacle. Along with its phony recovery. What the nation is experiencing is the result of the Obama administration providing rhetoric and not substantial solutions. Being unable to recognize the seriousness of the nations spiritual ruin. With almost every segment of our American society chiming in and cheering for acceptance of social issues that never would have been thinkable a few years ago. Constantly waving the banner that it’s the way for financial prosperity.

America desperately needs the hand of God through His church to rejuvenate the nation. Because their is a jealous fox roaming the country side, offering the prize of its demonic snare. With the Obama administration ravishing itself in the tidbits of falsehoods and caught securely in its snare, and not able to realize that it was a trap. Only the body of believers can free the nation from this snare. This snare of a trap, if not eradicated at its root source. Will spread snuffing out any remaining life from the nation.

Could it be that Christ’ church has stooped as a people, “Who attempt things with out due consideration then suffer for it and get laughed at with their bargain.” Making Aesop a prophet as much as a philosopher. As the nations economic, and social issues continues to reek havoc with the nations welfare. And upon awakening, will only discover it’s to late.

Islam has been jealous of American might and prosperity. Islam is Aesop’s fox who will snare America causing her death. With the nation being forced to make one concession after another to the Muslim community. Or experience the threat of death, from their legions of suicide bombers. As that has been the European experience, when their numbers become significant enough to demand compromise or death. And even after compromise death is haunting and tearing Europe apart. And the jealous fox is an American reality. And Islam has had enough of American monkey business.

Muslims are an irrational people. They can’t be reasoned with like normal people. Wherever they live, they are at odds between themselves and their neighbors. Their character has been established from our sacred scriptures, as a “wild” uncontrollable people see Genesis 16:12. Moses is making reference to Ishmael the founder of Islam, and the illegitimate son of Abraham. And illegitimacy can’t conform to acceptable spiritual or social normal expectations. As is clearly observable, wherever, Muslims are found in great number. Name your country and there is you proof!

So, let us not allow the Muslim community to make a monkey out of us, by catching us in its snare. For that is their intent, being able to say to the Christ’ church, fancy you being the light of the world. It’s either us or them, lets make it them. As the light eradicates an evil more formidable, and dangerous than Nazism ever was to the world community.

Is it a treat or trick

A farmer who was dying wanted his sons to become good agriculturalists. He summoned them and said, “I, my boys, am about to leave this world. You must search for what I have hidden in the vineyard. You will find there all that I have to give to you.”

They thought there was a treasure buried somewhere in the vineyard. And after there father was dead they dug every inch of the soil. There was no hidden treasure to be found, but the vines were so well dug they yielded a bumper crop.

This story teaches us that the fruits of toil are man’s best treasure. (Penguin Classics: Fables of Aesop-“Treasure Trove”)

Cultivating the ground, we know, is a necessary task for successful results. Whether it is for the expectation of a bountiful harvest, or the blooming of a magnificent flower garden.

It is no different when it comes to harvesting spiritual growth. It is just that the cultivation of a bountiful spiritual harvest requires different techniques. Like the following step by step, “Happy is the person, who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, or sits in the seat of the scornful. But their delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law they meditate day and night. And they shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in it season; its leaf shall not wither; and whatsoever they do shall prosper,” Psalms 1:1-3. And that is one of the many treats that the blessed in Christ can expect to receive and enjoy.

On the other hand the saddest of tricks is of the following because it is so unnecessary. “The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore, the ungodly shall not stand in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous; but the ungodly shall perish,” Psalms 1:3-6.

So unnecessary because the good tidings of the gospel are so readily available. Jesus had a discussion with some people of his community. He came across some business people using His fathers house for the sale of merchandise and ordered them to stop! They objected and wanted some sign for His authority to make such a demand. Jesus responded, and said, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up!” They snickered among themselves, and said, “It has taken forty six years to build this temple and He will raise it up in three days?” John 2:16,18,19,20.

But they missed the entire point because Jesus was talking about the temple of His body, John 2:21. Here is another of God’s gifts. It is written, “For you are the temple of the living God,” as God has said, “I will dwell in them, and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be my people,” 2  Corinthians 6:16b.

And that miracle, is what makes the cultivation of prosperity a rich harvest. But not necessarily always the mundane, but rather the spiritual. That journey can not begin until the following is understood. “And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word of God,” Revelation 19:13. All the episodes of history with many of them being tricks. Denying people what they want most. Can only be discovered by knowing the following, “That whosoever believes in Him (the Word of God) should not perish, but have eternal life,” John 3:15. If you understand that, than on that special occasion this occurred, “I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety nine just persons who need no repentance,” Luke 15:7. Amazing!

Among the already blessed in Christ, and want to learn the deeper meanings of this discussion. Dig deeper into the varied applications of the life, of a spiritual agriculturalist, because treats are better than tricks. And, they reap a bountiful harvest during the course of ones lifetime.

In the light of chaos who is this Jesus

Putting the chaos to rest once and forever.

Who has believed our report? And to whom has the way of the LORD revealed?

For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted.

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was beyond Him, and with his stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led  as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth.

He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who shall declare His generation? For He was cut off out of the land of the living; for the transgressions of My people He was stricken.

And they made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth.

Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He hath put him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see his seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.

He shall see the the labor of His soul and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.

Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He has poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intersession for the transgressors. (Scriptural texts:Isaiah 53:1-12).

And it is done, putting the chaos to rest once and forever.

Grace to you, and peace, from God, our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Scriptural text:Philemon verse 3).

The world spins around 8 numbers

With a series of discussions around Holy Week. Those interested in Christ were given an opportunity to better understand the Christ purpose and mission. Not just for Holy Week but for a greater depth and understanding of the future.

Followed by a short series about death published recently. Designed to provide information as to what death has to offer beyond the Christ experience after death. Haven’t read it? Do so, as it might be helpful. Just click the calendar dates for April sixth and seventh.

But God in His mercy, is not through just because of the events of Palm Sunday through Resurrection Sunday are in the past. He still offers all people everywhere, who have repented, and are part of His delivered remnant. The promise that death will have no lasting victory, John 6:44.

Easing the sorrow felt deep inside the converted to Christ, as we travel the year toward yet another Holy Week. From the realization, that we as sinners were contributors to His death.

It is found in Zechariah 12:10, “And I will pour out my spirit upon the house of David. Eight realities. (1) We in Christ are part of the house of David. And future inhabitants of Jerusalem, our ultimate destiny, we who will reign with Christ from our Holy City. (2) It ties Jews and Christians together as one. (3) And it’s a prophecy, when Jews will share in our sorrows, as brothers and sisters in Christ, some do now. (4) As Christians, we must stand with Israel and not allow Muslims to steal Jerusalem from Israel (5) Jesus will someday rule from Jerusalem. So it’s not just an Israeli crisis but a Christian one, too.(6) From that crisis, will erupt a global conflict unknown in the history of global conflicts. (7) And it’s why, this padre argues that Islam is evil. And is being used by the enemy of God, the universal great deceiver Satan to deny Christ His reign from Jerusalem. (8) All these constant global skirmishes by Muslims represent a prelude to what the world can expect from the evils of Islam. As Islam is the force trying to expel Israel from Jerusalem and eradicate the Jewish nation. But the Spirit of grace and of supplications will intervene. “AND THEY SHALL LOOK UPON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED, AND THEY SHALL MOURN FOR HIM, AS ONE MOURNS FOR HIS ONLY SON, AND SHALL BE IN BITTERNESS FOR HIM AS ONE IS IN BITTERNESS FOR HIS FIRST BORN.” That verse may be helpful in understanding, just how GOD the Father felt about the sacrifice of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ. And surely, yours, as it is mine, my constant reminder of my personal contribution to His crucifixion.

“The LORD bless you, and keep you. The LORD make his face shine upon and be gracious unto you. The LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace,” Numbers 6:24-26. As scornful sinners, we need His mercy and His constant presences of peace.

Several jewels for Christian empowerment were provided during Holy Week discussions. Recently completed discussions provided an accounting where death, at sometime in the future will offer a new beginning, for those who went to their graves without the life changing power of our resurrected Christ. All connected to this discussion showing God’s continuing mercy, despite His own sorrow.

The above eight points are the subject matter worthy of in depth analysis. Along with those during Holy Week. Which were designed to give an individual sense of Christian purpose and mission. Remember accept nothing as truth. Until you have studied, and researched what is declared to be biblical. Once verified, then it’s your truth. Use it for exalting our Redeemer which is your reasonable duty.
