Factors of the Unknown

“I returned, and saw, under the sun that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happened to them all,” Ecclesiastes 9:11.

It does seem that time and chance plays a significant role in many events. How many among us mere mortals can not attest to that as reality. Wishing that maybe it didn’t, then perhaps a catastrophe could have been avoided. And sometimes, something simple, like a traffic ticket. Just think maybe a departure a minute or two, either side of the clock could have been a blanket against time and chance.

No doubt that time and chance plays a significant role in our lives but not in all incidences. Here is an occasion, when time a chance plays no role whatsoever. “Therefore, if any person is in Christ, they become new creations; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new,” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

And here is why time and chance do not play a role in all circumstances. “So shall My word be that goes out of my mouth; it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it,” Isaiah 55:11.

Then this is how the unexplainable is explained. Jesus used this example, “The wind blows were it wills. And you hear the sound of it, but can not tell where it came from, and where it goes; so is every person that is born of the spirit,” John 3:8. Meaning that the unexplainable is sometimes explained only from personal experience. And often, is the case that experience is mysterious even to the recipient of that experience. It often has something to do with this rather obscure phrase, “And from the seven Spirits, who are before His throne.” A phrase which is repeated seven times in Revelation chapters two and three. Making it clear that those Spirits serve the interest of God Almighty, who mysteriously assigns them to intervene in our affairs. Additional insight is provided from this recording in Revelation 1:12-13, “… I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands, One like unto the Son of Man ….” With the mystery unfolding before us in Revelation 1:20, The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.”

Brief commentary: It’s all about the supernatural, who at the command of Divine Providence intervene angelically in the affairs of His Lampsatndsl, His churches, you and me.

Note the seven commands and promises and the switch to promises and commands. Jesus commanded, They who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Lampstands. They who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. (cp Revelation 2:7).

The persecuted Lampstands:They who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Lampstands. They that overcome shall not be hurt by the second death. (cp Revelation 2:11).

They who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Lampstands. To them who overcome, I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it. (cp Revelation 2:17).

The incorrupt Lampstands:They who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to them I will give power over the nations. They shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed like potter’s vessels. As I have received from My Father; and I will give them the morning star. They who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Lampstands. (cp Revelation 2:26-29).

Lampstands of overcomer’s:They that overcome shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out their name form the Book of Life; but will confess their names before My Father and before His angels. They who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying unto the Lampstands. (cp Revelation 3:5-6).

The Faithful Lampstand:Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world to test those who dwell on the earth. They who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Lampstands. (cp Revelation 3:10;13).

Lampstands of hope in the midst of indifference:To them that overcome, I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne. They who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Lampstnds. (Revelation 3:21-22).

The shoe is on the wrong foot

The woman applying for a job at a Florida lemon grove seemed to be far to qualified for the job.

The foreman frowned and said, “I have to ask you this, have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?”

“Well, as a matter of fact, I do!” she replied, ‘I’ve been divorced three times and I voted for Obama.'” (source:Patriot Humor-She’s a Pro)

Most understand that the nation is in a crisis mode. Not really sure how far south the economy will flow. With many suspecting the olden days of prosperity is a thing of the past. But not for the nations elite, they always find ways to cheat their way to prosperity. All at the expense of the nations hard working families.

Because, most tolerate such abuses for the sake of a bare existence. Pay check to pay check-miss one and lose your home and maybe a whole lot more.

With just a little fight from most things could be a lot better for us and a lot worse for the nations elite. Who would rather see people die, than allow for a fair distribution of the nations wealth. It’s simple, you got to take what’s yours. After all, you are the owner of your own work of production. And therefore, entitled to your fair share of the nations wealth.

So to blame President Obama for this mess after eight years of Republican rule. Is really putting the shoe on the wrong foot.From some one, who does not care a hoot about either party, but as one, who stays current with political developments. So they can help this padre map the chart of God’s time line, until the second advent of Jesus Christ to this earth. It can’t be done with exact precision because that time is known to none, but our Father who is in heaven, Mark 13:32. But with enough precision to sound the bells of alarm. “For the Son of Man, is like a man taking a far journey, who left his house and gave authority to his servants and to every person his work, and commanded the porter to watch, Mark 13:34.

Could well be the season for a series of prophetic discussions. Centered around the command of the watchful porter. Who happen to be those of us, and who can identify ourselves with the faithful witness Jesus Christ. The firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who washed us from our sins in His own blood. (cp Revelation 1:5).

But in the meantime, what work has he assigned to you? And do not be caught sleeping because it has been said to all, Watch! From the only authority worth obeying. (cp Mark 13:36-37).

In the intermittent period, what is needed is a revolution, an all encompassing spiritual revolt. So we can start over because that was what the life of Christ was all about. Christ was first about spiritual beginnings and then moving on to our temporal needs. And, we should follow his example. He even said so in John 13:15, which seems to strongly suggest that Jesus was talking about our willingness to die for his example, note John 13:1. Christians need to put the shoe on the right foot.

But as one with enough savvy to know that’s not going to happen. Because to many Christians are so comfortable in their fancy Sunday treads, and impressive church structures. Enjoying the choir, and from time to time grasping their hymnals, and blasting at the top of their lungs their favorite hymns. Hoping that the minister will be short winded because important things must be accomplished, like Sunday dinner, for one. With no doubt another task or two begging to for attention like maybe a trip to the mall or the beach, or even a movie. And, that’s what keeps the shoe on the wrong foot!

So few of us look for opportunities to slay the dragon in its many forms. Through the art of of formlessness and with the mysteriousness of soundlessness. Which is a counter revolutionary art, which needs to be learned with its varied applications.

Perhaps some of you Christ patriots should be thinking about planning a series clandestine operations. Seeing it big, but keeping it small can work extremely well. Especially when combined with the formlessness mysteriousness of soundlessness of a true Christ operative. Your leader is found in the midst of the seven golden lampstands. In His right hand seven stars. Out of His mouth went a sharp two edged sword. And His countenance was like the sun shinning in its strength. Telling all of His patriots not be afraid. Declaring Himself to be the First and the Last. And then explaining, the mystery of the seven stars that He held in His right hand. Along with the seven golden lampstands. Revealing that the seven stars are His angels destined as His protectors to seven churches. Because each golden lampstand is seen as a church meaning a Christ patriot and is angelically protected. The Commander of these patriots is Jesus himself who walks in the midst of these patriots. Many patriots will fail when tested. But His call is nevertheless is for perseverance and patience. Encouraging all of His patriots to continue in their labor and not to become weary. (cp Revelation 1:13;16;20;2:2-3).
And in between the two, fighting for fairness in the market place and opposing evils like Islam. Slaying some of those dragons till the return of Christ will take lots of fortitude. Therefore concentrate on the following. And maybe you’ll find it helpful in your own spiritual journey as a Christ patriot.

“… work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,” Philippians 2:12. Lots of ways to grow on the way to being what Christ desires of us.
Can’t beat this approach. “Blessed is the man, who walks not in counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the set of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law he meditates day and night. And he shall be like tree planted by the rivers of water; and whatsoever he does shall prosper,” Psalms 1:1-3. The way to getting the shoe on the right foot.

This is how it’s accomplished, “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit,” Philemon 1:25.

A monster tagged ISSI

Here it is the easy fix for a world gone mad. And made more insane because a brand new monster is on the world scene tagged ISSI. Stirring new fears where old fears have not been forgotten. Globally all nations, Muslim and non-Muslim have suddenly realized! We have meant our victor. Having a sense unexplainable that victory is not attainable. Because that’s part of the majestic mysteriousness of God Almighty to get the attention of His wayward creation. So the nations will put forth an effort to prove their instincts wrong. For at least, the sake of marginalizing the worlds helpless populace with their increasing fears.

The easy fix is as follows; because, “Surely the LORD does nothing. Unless he reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets,” Amos 3:7, and through, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave Him to show His servants things which must shortly take place. And He sent, and signified it by his His angel to His servant John,” Revelation 1:1.

What you have read is about some of the events and consequences Jesus talked about. When he said, “For then, shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor shall ever be,” Matthew 24:21. A merciful and just God used the ancients like Amos, John and others to inform us about troubling world events. Along with the reasons as to why He will allow such great catastrophic upheavals of destruction upon earth. Bringing humanity to the very brink of self annihilation. It’s because of one wake up call after another being ignored.

During the course of these discussions it was shone how God spared humanity from extinction. Extinction was bypassed because there was a man, who found grace in the eyes of God. God found him to be a just man and perfect in his generation. And Noah, walked with God.

Can such a person be found today that will spare the world from rising and flooding death seas of ISSI. It’s here that God allows Isaiah show us how to pull the plug on ISSI. If it is to occur, it’ll be because God found a person, who looked to his Maker. With humility and respected the Holy One of Israel. Crafted with an awareness that receding seas are not done by the crafty genius of the created. Thoughts crafted from Isaiah 17:7-8.

Suggestive that God is always in search for other Noah’s. Mercifully looking for ways to spare his creation from extinction. Because as things stand right now, Jesus is going to have to intervene or no one will survive. A declaration by Christ himself, Matthew 24:22.

Which leaves us with this old maxim, if not you, who? Maybe the whom is born of one and spreads to the many. Swallowing one Body of Believers after another. Until the church maximizes its potential as the salt and light of the world. Then it becomes that Christ cherished City on a Hill, as God intended. And government functions as it should because the government returns has become Christ center. Which was the intention of the nations founding fathers.

A legacy in peril; therefore, a legacy lost. “The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments,” Benjamin Rush, On the Mode of Education Proper in a Republic, 1806. One of the signers of our, Declaration of Independence.

A foundation crushed. “And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure, when we have removed their only firm bases, a conviction in the minds of the minds of the people that liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country, when I reflect that God is just that his justice cannot sleep forever,” Thomas Jefferson, 1781. Another signer of our, Declaration of Independence, and our third president.

Truth never sleeps. “These are the times that try men’s  souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman,” Thomas Paine, 1776

Truth awakened. “Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city the watchman stays awake in vain,” Psalms 127:1.

They will be the ready ones discussed yesterday. And for awhile that dreadful tribulation will be postponed because God is a God of mercy and second chances.

Today is not about yesterday

Yesterdays citizens of America have earned the right to be applauded. They gave America through hard work, unflinching determination and sacrifice of life. Leaving America with republic form of government. Whereby Americans have enjoyed unparalleled freedoms and openness of government. Allowing all to possess liberty of conscience and immunities of friendship.

“It is now no more that toleration is spoken, as if it were by the indulgence of one class of citizens that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights, for happily the government of the United States, which gives bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they, who live under its protection should demean them selves good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support,” President George Washington, letter to the Hebrew Congregation of New Port Rhode Island, 1790.

That great enterprise called America had its birth with John Winthrop, and his congregation fleeing religious persecution crossed the Atlantic. Landing in Massachusetts to establish the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Such a long, and treacherous journey of those days brought on discouragement. With it being exhausting to those long ago travelers. With doubt setting in causing a yearning to return to that which they were fleeing.

So Winthrop having had an inspiration that his congregates needed to be reminded that their treacherous journey had a godly destination. So he turned to his Bible, and reminded them that their destination was of divine inspiration. Reading the following, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, which is in heaven,” Matthew 5:14-16. From thence came the birth of what would later become American exceptionalism.

Winthrop’s mission was accomplished in 1630. But it was not of human origin alone, but by divine decree. It dates back all the way to c.1450-1410 B.C. When Jacob, made these historic prophetic announcements. And Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which will occur in the last days. Gather yourselves together, and hear, you sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel, your father,” Genesis 49:1-2. If you were born on these sacred shores called America, then you are of the family of Jacob.

Back tracking first to, Genesis 48, “An angel, who redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth,” verse 16. Joseph thought that his sick father had made a mistake by blessing his younger grandson first. But Jacob corrected Joseph saying, “I know it; he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations. (Note Genesis 17:4, which reads, As for me, behold my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of many nations”). And he blessed them that day, saying, in you shall Israel bless, saying, God made you Ephraim and as Manasseh. And he set, Ephraim before Manasseh,” Genesis 48:19-20.

From those prophetic scriptures three occurrences took place. Ephraim was destined to be Great Britain whose seed became a multitude of nations. With the Brits often bragging that the sun never set upon its empire. While big brother Manasseh destined also to become great. Through the pilgrims like John Winthrop finding their way to what would become America. And from Genesis 17:4, a mystery to most which is a triangular bond between Israel, Great Britain and the United States. Which America used to proudly refer to as its Judea-Christian heritage. But that was yesterday, today the nation is seeing that heritage as a stumbling block. But fortunately, there is enough resistance to retain our Israeli American bond. Its demise is well underway but its more sneaky than overt.

But that sneakiness is far more dangerous than direct overt declarations for setting aside what made America great. That great city on a hill whose light through Jesus Christ made it the envy of the world. It is so sneaky quiet that most are not aware of it. Which is the dissolving of Americas dependence upon its Judea-Christian heritage on purpose by their on United States government.

Now back to a fast forward to Genesis 49, where we’ll find the source of America’s greatness. Joseph is a fruitful bough; even a fruitful bough by a well, whose branches run over the wall. The archers have harassed him, and shot at him, and hated him. But he abode in strength, and his arms were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob. From there is the shepherd, the stone of Israel (meaning Jesus Christ). Even by the God of thy father, who will help; and by the Almighty, who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb. The blessings of they father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills (including America’s City on a Hill).They shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the head of him that was separate from his brother,” verses 22-26.

In those five verses God laid out before America its path to prosperity and military might. Now the generous hand of God is being withdrawn. As prosperity and might escapes her grip. Because America is forgetting the source of her prosperity and might. And no amount of government tinkering is going to make America prosperous and with a sustainable military might.

If you can’t see the beauty of her rise and her decline, then no doubt, you lack the spiritual insight to understand what you have just been privileged to read. Not what this padre wrote, but God allowed Moses to write.

But for those with the twofold insight, blessed are you! Then you know what must be done. By what ever means necessary to make sure America is seen, as the nation on a hill. Enlightened by her exceptionalism once again.

Here is the almighty promise from God. It’s what will keep America and Israel together as prosperous and mighty nations. “I will bless them that bless you and curse them that curse you. And in you shall all the families of earth be blessed,” Genesis 12:3. There is no other formula for American exceptionalism.

Two last thoughts and a plea. God always knew that most likely the nations would turn against him and Israel. But God is a deity of righteousness, and mercy. Allowing for a change of mind to occur. So that mercy is dispensed and not righteous judgments. It’s about choice.

Ever think about Israel a nation about the size of New Jersey? Surrounded by an Arab/Muslim world with at least ten times the land mass of Israel. Whose populace is many times greater than that of Israel. Who have declared that they want to annihilate Israel, but can’t. Want to know why? It’s contained in the pages of your Bible. Another prophetic declaration, which reads. It’s a continuous work in progress. For, thus says the LORD of hosts. “He sent Me after the glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he that touches you touches the apple of His eye,” Zechariah 2:8.

People are interesting who have as their sole purpose the making sure that America returns rooted to its Judea-Christian foundation. And as the illuminating city on a hill for the majesty of Jesus Christ to the glory of God. Interested in some dangerous undertakings? Because the aforementioned isn’t popular anymore. Organize, train and then do it.
O! to see America once again, as the model of that letter that President Washington sent of to that Hebrew congregation. In today’s America, it’s Christendom that is losing its liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship. Our inherit natural rights are slowly but surely being shelved, to our shame. If things don’t change, it could, in the future be life threatening to identify with Jesus Christ publicly because it would be consider offensive to multiculturalism and political correctness. Therefore; Christ souldiers, suit up because there is a war to be fought.

Thomas Paine-Jesus Christ-the apple cart

“Not all the treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war, for I think it murder; but if a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me, or those that are in it, and to bind me in all cases whatsoever to his absolute will, am I to suffer it?” Thomas Paine, 1776.

What parallels can be found with the following? Today the Christian movement bears very little resemblances to the movement Jesus introduced to the world community. Just take a little time, and read, the gospel of Mark. Mark is suggested because it is the shortest of the gospel narratives about Jesus. It is suggested that people write down their observations. Comparing and contrasting the Christendom of Christ followers today with what is recorded in Mark.

Most will not take advantage of this enlightening exercise. But for the few who do, it makes for a good introduction and exchange of information concerning the Christ of than and now. Perhaps you will agree that the Christ presented today is much different from the Christ, not just of the gospel of Mark, but also of Matthew, Luke, and John.

Maybe Thomas Paine was motivated fight for God, family, and nation because he saw Jesus as an revolutionary. A revolutionary, indeed he was, and he paid for his cause with his life. Christ launched his revolutionary movement with the purposeful intent of over throwing the established order of his day. It was his intention that it remain so through the ages, until his second advent.

In that respect, we are to act like the John the Baptist. Who was commissioned by these word, Comfort my people says your God, Isaiah 40:1. As the voice crying in the wilderness, prepare the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God, Isaiah 40:3. And, confirmed by Matthew 3:1-3. The revolutionary call of John, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Saying, “Prepare you the way of the Lord make his paths straight.” In a desert the swirling sands from the wind makes it impossible to have a straight highway. This place called earth is a desert of swirling apostate religions and Christ defying politicians making it impossible to find a straight highway to our God.

Christendom today has this same commission; only Jesus put it this way, “Then Jesus said to his disciples. “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me,” Matthew 16:24. With Jesus going on to suggest that this could be a dangerous undertaking, saying, “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it,” Matthew 16:25.

Taking it a step further it might be just as difficult for some to accept that God’s plan for society has been destroyed by the modern church and the nations secular government. Because all elements of the modern American society can be viewed from Paine’ observations. So as the church falls, so will be the experience of free nations, like the United States. The question to be answered will Christendom respond with Thomas’ resolution? “… am I to suffer it?” No was Paine’ answer! One suspects from his writings. Like other patriots, Paine most likely rallied around an excerpt offered by Patrick Henry, “Give me liberty or give me death.” From his famous speech delivered in 1775 to the Virginia Convention at St. John’s church in Richmond Virginia. Among the delegates to the convention were future U.S. Presidents, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. So are we modern patriots, up to task of restoring America to her rightful place, as God’s light to a troubled nation and world?

Hopefully most readers, of this discussion will concur. Connecting with a revolutionary opportunity to revitalize the church. And in the process, save the United States of America from a future not friendly to our Judea-Christian heritage. Which had been built upon freedom, with its open society called democracy. World governments through the United Nations are becoming more hostile to our American style of democracy. And worse yet, the Obama administration is getting on that band wagon. Which if allowed to continue will move from being hostile to tyrannical in its governance of America. Enuf is enuf patriots in Christ. Secularism, apostate Christendom and those outside the family of Christ have nothing to offer to the stopping of the Obama administration.

I would suggest that GOD thinks that needs to occur. Need some convincing read the early chapters of the book of Revelation. There God found the church to be an experiment of some success but with increasing failures. Until God declares, “I know your works that you are neither cold or hot. I would wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot. I will vomit you from my mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing. And know you not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked,” Revelation 3:15-17.

In that same book, however, Christ announced that he is available to make the church once again a useful revolutionary movement. “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore, be zealous and repent,” Revelation 3:19.

The first step in becoming apart of this revolutionary movement founded by Christ. Is to acknowledge the gospel edict that says you must be “born again.” John put it this way, “But as many, as received him, to them gave he the power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name. Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God,” John 1:12-13. Resulting in this unexplainable miracle that is known to each and every person born of God. Which is, “Therefore, if any person be in Christ, they are new creations; old things pass away; behold all things become new,” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

To understand what it means to be “born again,” as Christians. Perhaps it will help to establish what it does not mean. Being born again has nothing to do with the religious concept that such an experience is your ticket to eternal life. Such doctrines are highly questionable if you study Mathews camel and the eye of a needle and heaven statement, Matthew 19:23-24. Compared with Revelation 22:12, And behold! I come quickly, and my reward is with me, to give every person according to his work.

That modern day notion is ones ticket for escaping hell and going to heaven. Has made many a religious leader very wealthy and powerful. In order to gain wealth and power the modern church needs control. They secure control through doctrines of fear and superstition. A belief system in a literal heaven or hell upon death is mandatory. It has resulted in a mostly do nothing church. To be “born again” means to embrace and experience the aforementioned scriptures. Then to take upon ones self the cause of Christ. For example, Peter’s decision to add to his occupation as a fisherman the cause of Christ. Peter was “born again” in the truest sense of the experience. when he accepted a new purpose for his life. It had nothing to do with the here after! Should death occur in his following of Jesus.

As opportunity allows, I tell my students, Whatever you read, or are told, accept it only as information. Neither true nor false, until you the student have researched and studied the stated statements. Then you will be the owner of the truth. Because all of society is about mind shaping for controlled behavior. Surely, the same must apply to those who read these discussions.

Concerning the death experience here is what occurs because humanity disobeyed God. “In the sweat of your face shalt you eat bread, till you return to the ground. For out it were you taken; for dust are you, and unto dust shall you return,” Genesis 3:19. Confirmed by 2 Kings 22:20, “Behold therefore, I will gather you unto your fathers, and you shall be gathered into your grave in peace. And your eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place.” With the grave being ones temporary resting place. Then, “And many of them, who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt,” Daniel 12:2, and Matthew 27:52, “And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints that slept were raised.” Because, “And no person has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man, who is in heaven,” John 3:13. For it has been determined, “Marvel not at this; for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the grave shall hear his voice. And shall come forth; THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE; and they that have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation,” John 5:28-29.

He who testifies these things, says, “Surely, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen, Revelation 22:20-21.

For the daring, who want to overthrow some apple carts for Jesus Christ. Organize! Find like minded saints, plan and train, then get to work. And if this padre is fortunate enough, perhaps you’ll invite me to join your cause.
