the unable machine

The world has become a very dangerous place to be apart of. People are killing each other based upon looks, color, gender, ethnicity, ideology and religion. Age doesn’t matter anymore either, as the young, and the old have become acceptable targets.

Governments within the community of nations have surrendered themselves to a new reality. Declaring that harm, and death is the new normal. Then encouraging the citizenry to be brave by not allowing proponents of terrorism to alter their lifestyles. To do otherwise, they say, is an act of forfeiture to those, who want to harm and kill. Don’t know about you, but neither scenario is acceptable.

And all this harm, and death seems to revolve around how some define God. Some define God as loving, merciful, judgmental, all knowing, ever present and above all powerful. But such attributes can be called into question, just by the absurdity of the human condition.

Why would a loving, merciful, judgmental Creator, who knows everything, is ever present and with retaliatory capabilities allow such mockery? Especially as this God looks around the world, and knows that the slaughter of people, and often very innocent people. In the name of someones God. The question must be asked, why? Taken in the context of God, who knows everything and is everywhere at the same time.

Does God only act with the consent of His council? Sort of like a democracy. Now that rubs the majority of Christendom the wrong way. They have mapped out world history from creation, to the garden of Eden experience, through to the birth of Jesus. To His cruel murder, resurrection and ascension to heaven. Continuing with His eventual return to establish His kingdom on this very earth. With all the judgments in between and after the brief chronology of these events.

So lets take a look at the possibility of God governing by council consensus. “God stands in the congregation of the mighty. He judges among the gods. How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked?” See Psalms 82:1-2.

If you see the oppression of the poor, and the violent perversion of justice and righteousness in a province, do not marvel at the matter; for high official watches over high official, and higher officials  are over them. Ecclesiastes 5:8.

Then Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne. And all the host of heaven standing by on His right and on His left.” See 1 Kings 22:19.

b careful what you wish 4 cas it might hurt

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

betrayal hurts

Nestled in parts of what is recognized as Turkey today. Was an assembly of Jews, who had fled Jerusalem because of a Jew hating prosecutor. Who was determined to put to silence by death, if necessary the shenanigans by those messengers of Jesus.

This Jewish assembly or synagogue of Ephesus and the other six discussed in chapters two and three from the book of Revelation. Were Jewish believers in Christ. As such they were what John labeled in the first chapter as Lampstands. In the midst of those Lampsatnds was one like the Son of Man. See Revelation 1:13.

The message that’s going to be shared with that synagogue is fitting for Christ followers whether Jew or Gentile today. To the angel of the church at Ephesus know this. These things says, “He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, walks in the midst of the seven golden Lampstands. I know your works, you labor, your patience that you cannot bear those who are evil. And have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars. And you have persevered, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary.” See Revelation 2:1-3.

By way of exegeses here are points of clarification making the Christ devotee durable enough to persevere in the strenuous labors one faces in His service. Works requiring patience in exposing the evils of the times. And discovering that those, who claim to be with you, are at cross purposes with you. Such a discovery can be both exhausting and defeating.

Apart from labeling them as liars, we don’t know what made them liars. Did such a declaration embody only people within that Jewish synagogue? The expression of apostles would suggest that the betrayers were those within their assembly. However if, apostle was a generic expression then liars could come from multiple antagonists. Representing Jews or Gentiles out side of that Jewish assembly, who pledged support for their community labors? It really doesn’t matter apart from discovering that a suspected friendship of alliance of purpose was one of betrayal.

Perhaps that’s what caused their demise in the sight of the one, who appeared among the as the Son of Man. Holding seven stars in His right hand.

a warriors portfolis

Yesterday, we took an unusual journey discussing the unusual with how to make it the usual. With out being a skilled anybody. Just by being the ordinary you. We can defy the most significant advancements of intelligentsia with a simple easy to understand and use formula.

The stakes are high because the American way of life is at risk. Taking it a step further without immediate change America will be obliterated from the world scene. Whether apostate Christendom, the government, Wall Street or the combined community of intelligentsia disagrees. It doesn’t matter. What matters is you. Yesterdays discussion concerning the nonfunctional ability of the human senses as conduits for change or healing is apropos.

Jesus is the one John saw among His churches as lampstands. Holding in His right seven stars. Which are angels associated with His churches, you and me. See Revelation 1:12; 20.

Christ presented Himself as a warrior through John, who was given this portrait to paint. Painting a picture of His churches, you and me. So John begins his sketching by developing an image of one midst of a group of lampstands. Stroking the figure of someone was like the Son of Man. Clothed with a garment down to His feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; He had in his right hand seven stars, and out of His mouth went a sharp two edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shinning in its strength. See Revelation 1:13-16.

The canvas is painted and conjures this picture. Yes! An unexpected picture of a warrior. A Christ, who is of royalty and sovereignty symbolized by His attire. It’s a worthwhile study to able to associate the names of God with His character. Because it’s how we get to know Him in His sovereign majesty. In Genesis 1:1, as Elohim, His supremacy is established which reads, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” We know that Jesus is God because He said, “The Father and I are one. See John 10:30. Therefore Jesus has the legal right to insist that the worlds people conform their behaviors according to His directives.

Also seen picturesquely is the majestic character of Christ with His perfect resilience against all challenges and challengers. He is our Commander in Chief and offers defenses that can’t be penetrated. Again, yesterdays discussion is apropos here.

We are His lampstands. Humans, not concrete and stained glass edifices called churches. Which are usually used for empire building, and not light to show the way to Christ and His tenets. If it were otherwise America would be very different from the America we know today.

One discussion builds upon another, so visit us tomorrow, and see if America has a future.

Allah is our objective. The prophet Muhammad is our leader. The Qur’an is our law, Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.

Perhaps that was the prayer Muslim, Karim Cheurfi. And all those Islamic liberators that preceded him, and the many jihadists that will follow him.

Solution: Exit Muslims to the wastelands of their ancestors. Close their military fortresses called mosques.

No safety when among a Muslim. You never know when it might your turn to be greeted by Muslim hate.

Islamic roots and determination

We are engaged in a world war! All of the formalities commonly known about wars has dramatically changed. The American government knows that but will not admit it. Fearing a revolt against the millions of Muslims living in the United States. Also putting in danger the thousands of Muslim military fortresses called mosques that dot the American landscape. Resulting in Muslim clerics rallying Muslims to respond in self defense. Making the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor look like child’s play.

Muslims come and bear a false ideology of peace. Because, their behavior tells the truth of them being false prophets. Many examples could be cited but one will do. Emerging from the rubble of 9/11, was the merger of 22 agencies under the umbrella of a new cabinet level agency called Homeland Security. The largest reorganization of the united States government since World War Two. Within that agency is a section called the Homeland Security Council. It’s estimated that they spend $70 million daily to protect Americans from Islamic terror. It’s difficult to estimate the actual number of soldiers station there. But their fighting force is thought to be in the tens of thousands. Most are not uniformed or armed, and the government calls them civil servants. That’s the new face of American defensive warfare on their homeland.

What are they protecting us from? Various declarations that Islamist have declared. From their prophet Muhammad himself. The offspring of Ishmael the father of Islam. Muhammad said in March 632, “I was ordered to fight all men until they say, ‘There is no god but Allah.”’ Then the Muslim Brotherhood with roots in America declaring, “Allah is our objective. The prophet Muhammad is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying is the way of Allah our highest hope. The saga to be continued tomorrow.

One thing at a time

Lagging behind the rest of the flock, a young goat found himself chased by a wolf. He turned to it, and said, “I know very well that you are going to make a meal of me. But, I would like to die with due ceremony. Please play the flute for me to dance to.”

While the flute playing and dancing were in progress, the noise brought the dogs to the scene. Chased off by them, the wolf turned and said, “Serves me right! When I had butcher’s work to do, I should not have turned flute player.”

Concluding: People who act without due consideration of the business in hand lose even what they have within their grasp. (source:Fables of Aesop-Penguin Classics-One Thing At A Time)

But for all circumstances, spins this eternal truth. “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death,” Proverbs 14:12.

Christ is dead so is America

The greatest week in world history witnessed our mourning  over His death. This question rises, who were His friends, when He died those many years ago? And, who are His friends today? As we observed the events of Holy Week that climaxed on Resurrection Sunday.

Captured in this discussion are some staggering realities facing Americans, whether Christian or not.

Here is a reality check that Jesus provided. “Greater love has no man than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends, if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing. But I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard from My Father, I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and have appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain. That whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give you.” (Scriptural texts:John 15:13-16;NKJV).

The asking and receiving is very conditional but that’s a discussion for another time. Said to stimulate your thinking cords. If your not to conditioned by a mostly do nothing church.

During the week, the holiest of all weeks of our calendar year, Satan perceived as an angel of light menaced the sanctity of holy matrimony. By acting through other people and attacking God through state legislators and through state and federal courts. Now the United States Supreme Court has settled the issue as to who prevails Satan or God. For now Satan has prevailed because gay marriages is the law of the land. And that is a disgrace for all of us, who are the announced friends of Jesus.

Annually on the eve of Palm Sunday and on Palm Sunday itself homosexuals continue to celebrated their victory over Jesus Christ by parading their celebratory defiance of what the Bible teaches about the abhorrence of homosexuality. With the political, and business community providing their full support. For politicians it guarantees votes, and for the business it all about money. For the United States as a whole, it means death. Know your Bible than you know all about what has been said. Don’t know your Bible get with it and maybe you’ll become alarmed.

Gone is the federal statute known as the Defense of Marriage Act which made the declaration that marriage is between a man and a woman. It was signed into law, 21 September 1966, by President ‘slick willy’ Clinton. Who later said, “The law was unconstitutional.” And slick Willy bragged that he signed DOMA into law to, “Head off a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.” (Source:NPR, Mark Memmott, 08 March 2013, at 10:38 AM).

Hillary Clinton shares the same views as her husband because she can be heard announcing them. So don’t give her your vote, as it’ll only mean another nail in an already dying nations coffin.

We the friends of Jesus better get our act together or America, will be the twenty first centuries Sodom and Gomorrah. Here’s a taste of the worlds reaction. And they cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, “What is like this great city.” They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing,” and saying, “Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one, hour she is made desolate.” (Scriptural texts:Revelation 18:18-19 NKJV).

If it happens its to the shame of the church, who today, talks the talk, but doesn’t walk the talk. As exemplified by the aforementioned scriptural texts of, John 15:13-16. Which strongly suggests that today’s church isn’t for Jesus. Because Jesus asked, “Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then, he will plunder his house. He that is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters abroad.” (Scriptural texts:Matthew 12:29-30;NKJV).

The church is suppose to be God’s strong house. With us being His strong men and women, having allowed the edicts of God to be bound. And equally so, the earth as the house of God has been plundered by allowing the sanctioning of same sex unions.

On the day when Christendom mourned the death of Jesus. Most probably Jesus mourned the death of America. How special was America to Jesus? This special, “Babylon was the golden cup in the LORD’s hand.” Text Jeremiah 51:7a. And, “You! you are my battle ax and weapons of war. For with you I will break the nations in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms.” Jeremiah 51:20. But the Daughter of Babylon, America, managed to anger God and will be destroyed. “Therefore behold, the days are coming that I will bring judgment on the carved images (sanctioned homosexuality and betrayal of Israel to name two) of Babylon, America’s sins. And all her slain shall fall in her midst. Then the heavens and the earth and all in them shall sing joyously over Babylon, America. For the plunders shall come from the North,” says the LORD. (Scriptural texts:Jeremiah 51:47-48;NKJV). Seems like a done deal. Better pray that God finds a twenty first century Noah and spares the daughter of Babylon.

Despite what politicians and their supporters think, federal or states constitutions are not the highest law of the land, nor are their statutes. The highest law governing America is our Judeo/Christian traditions. Which gave the nation life, victory and prosperity because American laws were anchored from our Holy Bible. Gone are those days, and so will be America, as noted.

So here is how the highest legal authority eventually came about in America. And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, And he slept; and took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (Scriptural texts:Genesis 2:18;21-24;NKJV).

Jesus gave up his life honoring everything sacred to His Father our God. And what God sanctified, was never meant to be set aside. So Jesus said, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female?” And said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh. So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate.” (Scriptural texts:Matthew 19:4-6;NKJV).

So what are we the redeemed in Christ to do about this assault upon what God has sanctified as marriage? Reread John 15:13-15, and bring forth fruit because the sanctity of marriage is to remain; note verse 16. It’s not magic, it requires hard work and a willingness to sacrifice. When one decides whose side they are really on from Matthew 12:29-30. How do we bring forth fruit? It’s beyond this padre considering the state of the church today. Based upon what is said about the church in Revelation 3:14-17. With judgment there is hope, and it’s found in Revelation 3:18-19. It’ll take a lot of Noah’s and lots of blood and guts.

Because there comes a time when God has had enough of man’s belligerence and He lets them pave the way to their destruction. Our duty is to bear fruit which God excepts from us; but today, that fruit must harshly judge His enemies. For God has said He will not be mocked, and what is sown shall be reaped. (Scriptural texts:Galatians 6:7-8 NKJV).

Time for the healing of America just might be an expectation of the past. Note a future prophecy: Babylon, America, has suddenly fallen and been destroyed. Wail for her! Take balm for her pain; perhaps she may be healed. we would have healed Babylon, America, but she is not healed. Forsake her and let us go everyone to his own country; for her judgment reaches to heaven and is lifted up to the skies. Scriptural texts:Jeremiah 51:8-9;KKJV).

This is for the redeemed in Christ who try. Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season, we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. (Scriptural text:Galatians 6:9 NKJV). Shared because of a phrase from, Jeremiah 51:8, “Perhaps she may be healed.” Recall when God had decided to destroy every living thing on earth? Why? Because their wickedness had one intent which was to continually to do evil. But God changed His mind because of a man named Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. But for that to happen for modern day Babylon, it’ll require a 360 degree turn about. And it’ll most likely require lots of Noah’s. But as long as times remain and Noah’s are there. Hope remains. It’s recorded as such in Revelation 3:19, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.” Regardless of how it turns out, this is the eternal promise. “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on my throne, as I have also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne.” (Scriptural text:Revelation 3:21).

What happens after death PLENTY

It might be difficult for some to accept the reality that the dead are really dead. They are not found in a place called hell or heaven. The fate of the dead was set centuries ago with this recording, Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it.’ “Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it all the days of life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and unto dust shall you return,” Genesis 3:16-19. Death an indisputable event waiting to occur at the appointed time set by our Creator.

God seems to have intended death to be the first lesson in duality, as to what the future holds for the dead because death is temporary. But for some there will be a second death which will be permanent. Like their first death its a state of nothingness. Meaning a condition of total unconsciousness or nothingness. Not tortured in hell or entertained in heaven.

Ezekiel gives us a description of those dead a very long time. Which is a future prophecy waiting to occur. When this spectacular event happens the dead will be reassembled and given coverings of flesh. At the appointed time, God will bring them out their graves and give them life, Ezekiel 37:1-14. This resurrection to life represents the whole house of Israel who died centuries ago. They will be given the opportunity to know that Christ is their God, verse 6. It appears from what we are told, that not a single Jew refused to accept this personal knowledge of knowing Jesus as their God.

The future of those Jews with the remaining dead in their graves is pictured in Revelation 20:5. “But the rest of the dead lived not again until after a 1,000 years. All those people will be participants of the first resurrection. The first resurrection also includes some, who will be alive, when this glorious event occurs. Together those people are part of the Christ believers, They will be here with Jesus during His kingdom of earthly reign.

Helpless as a camel on an interstate highway

The battered and persecuted Jews number approximately 13.75 million of the worlds population today. Which represents about 4.25 million fewer than they were in 1939.

On the other hand those who completely want to annihilate the Jews. The Arab/Muslim world, who represent around 372 million Arabs with brotherly ties to about 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide.

Yet with all their greater numbers, money and fire power. They are as helpless as a camel on an interstate highway. Simple reason, God promised to make the Jews a great and blessed nation among themselves and their neighbors, extending to a far away place called America. Which is verified by, Genesis 12:1-2, with the worlds troubles falling on the shoulders of the abusers of verse 3.

Want peace in the world, obey God. Don’t fret! It won’t happen because God has already labeled the worlds population, as being stiff necked and stubborn. You know, for every act, there is a greater reaction. Until planet earth can’t endure any more, then the inevitable, God intervenes and saves the world. It’s called His Kingdom on Earth. Study, learn more, know more with interplay from the scriptures and world events. Fascinating journey!

A LOOK AT THE REAL ESTATE WITH ITS GLOBAL HOSTILITIES: God in his providence returned a small portion of his covenant promises to Israel, in 1948. That contract between God, and the Jews has a long and complicated history. But for this discussion, here is a portion of that history. “Now the LORD had said to Abram, get out of your country …, unto a land that I will show you. And I will make you a great nation …,” Genesis 12:1-2.

Then in 1967, again God in his providence expanded his covenant promises with Israel. By allowing Israel to defeat the Arab/Muslim world in a war, that humanly was not possible. Because of the over bearing numbers making the odds of victory in surmountable on the surface. Stunning the world again with their survival instinct. And if God is gracious to Israel again, in his providence then the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip will become the expanded state of Israel. Which is needed for defensive purposes because of the mountainous terrain.

HERE IS THE OFFENSIVE NUMBERS OPPOSING ISRAEL: The Israeli land mass is made up of a country that is smaller than the state of New Jersey which is one state within the United States. Or, 1/19 the size of another American state which is California.

Of immense interest is this reality, Israel is one of the ‘tiniest’ nations occupying God’s earth. Consisting of about 8,000 square miles. Israel is only 260 miles at its longest point and about 60 miles in width. Its width at it narrowest point measures between 3-9 miles but blessed with 120 mile coastline.

Of concern for Israeli survival, is that Israel is surrounded by 22 hostile Arab/Muslim states. With a land mass many times the land mass of Israel. Equaling many times, the Israeli population within Israel, which is slightly more than eight million people. Compared to hundreds of millions Arabs/Muslims surrounding Israel. What incredible lop sided numbers against Israel and yet she survives and prospers against all odds.

IN SUMMARY: What does all this mean? It means the Arab/Muslim world will never set aside its conquests to annihilate Israel. With all this Arab/Muslim talk about peace being nothing more than a smoke screen. Wanting a Palestinian state is nothing more than wanting to squeeze Israel for military purposes. Along with those magnificent mountain ranges to lob projectiles into Israel from a height advantage.

The prophet Zechariah describes all this as, “The burden of the Word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, who stretched forth the heavens and laid the foundation of the earth, and formed the spirit of man within him. BEHOLD! I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all peoples round about, when they shall lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem,” Zechariah 12:1-2.

The Israeli fight is the Christian fight. We are one, and the same as a people. We must stand with Israel. And together, we must fight off this Islamic menace. Absent any intended play on words, it’s a fight unto the death.

The final outcome is settled, God will prevail and preserve His people. It’s that in between period that’s troublesome because His people, Jews and Christians, have failed Him. So at times He hardens the hearts of governmental rulers, who make life difficult for His people. God always puts it this way, “… that you may know that there is none like me on the earth,” Exodus 9:14. So it’s possible that the Islamic plagues fracturing God’s people are of God. And intended for the sole purpose of awakening, both Jew and Christian. To the realization that Jew and Christian may know, “that there is none like me in all the earth.”

Thomas Paine in 1776 put it this way, “These are times that try man’s soul.” Equally so today, it’s time to shed Paine’s ‘Summer Soldier’ and ‘Sunshine Patriot.’ For the uniform of the Christ SOULdier marching for the cause of Christ, bearing his cross. And knowing that just a drink of water to the battle weary SOULdier is worthy of recognition by Christ himself, Revelation 22:12.

So it’s time to Souldier up and fight back against Islam. God’s enemy and thus ours! With purpose, mobilize as Jews and Christians from community to community. Learn, and use God’s surreal arts of self defense. They are there for the learning, as seen from my discussion yesterday. In some cases it’s seeing the unseeable. Several recent discussions exposed what most observe but don’t see.

Hoodwinked

The disciples came to Jesus, when he was at the Mount of Olives. They asked Jesus the following question. What shall be a sign of your coming and the end of the age? Matthew 24:3. In verse five, Jesus provided the first sign in response to their question. When he replied, many shall come in my name and deceive many.

Deception is the oldest hoax known to humanity. Why are we so prone to being tricked? Most likely it occurs because there is something about us that is constantly seeking defining. It’s an all consuming life long struggle to define, who we are, which attracts one hoax after another which offers self identity. None is greater than the appeal of religion.

Gain some insight by taking a trip to our very beginning. Which dates back to the book of Genesis. There we find a discussion taking place between the mother of humanity and the serpent the perfect impostor of Satan. Amazing character this shape shifting fallen angel. Known by many different names. This angelic being so influential in world affairs but few know little about this angel. What’s to follow will shed some insight on a creature to be feared. Mainly because this angel is after you, if you think this is a joke, take notice of 1 Peter 5:8.

Get this because it’s very important when attempting to understand the signs that announce the end of the age which is often referred to as the Olivet Discourse. Because not every peddled hoax is a lie. In Genesis 3:5, the serpent told the woman the truth. For the serpent announced, “For God knows that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good and evil.” And indeed the mother and father of humanity had their eyes opened. Like God, they were made aware of good and evil. And inherited the consequences of evil, with its end, which is death, as recorded in Genesis 3:19.

From there, humanities struggles began. Soon to follow, we have the first murder and our sad saga continues to this very day.

It’s not natural for humanity to be alienated from God. With centuries of history humanity continues trying to define itself. But the more humanity pushes for knowledge trying to answer the ultimate question. Who am I, and what is the purpose of my existence? The more confused humanity becomes as to their true identity and purpose. Making far to many prone to fall for one hoax, after another, which promises self discovery. Desperate to satisfy that inner graving as to identity and purpose.

Humanities identity and purpose is found only in Jesus Christ. Who Satisfies that inner craving for union with God. Because God, is giver of life, Genesis 2:17. Life is still a miracle from God. And that union with God is found with God erasing the evil, or the sin of disobedience inherited from the Genesis experience. And today, expressed through 2 Corinthians 5:17.

But the Genesis experience of deception is far from over. For that great deceiver the serpent, shape shifter of the devil is busy promoting one hoax after another. Take the devils successful hoax centering around the political/judicial system of Islam. Which camouflages itself as a religion, as it campaigns to oppress self discovery and purpose through its political/judicial mechanisms. Islam is the greatest hoax ever perpetuated upon humanity since humanities Genesis experience. And, Islam has been around plaguing humanity almost as long. Christian crusaders in order to rescue the world from Islamic mayhem have repeatedly hammered Islam into retreat and submission. Today the hoaxed of Islamic torture cries out to Christian crusaders for rescue once again. Who will answer the call? Certainly not the the United States government because the government is complicit in seeing Islam for everything it is not.

Jesus once had a discussion with a man who referred to him as being good. Jesus was quick to correct him saying. “Why call me good? There is none good but one, that is, God,” Matthew 19:7. Proudly presenting His credentials as God, John 10:30. Retold in Revelation 19 in this manner. There John describes the trilogy of God. Seeing a rider on a white horse. He identifies this writer as the “Faithful and True,” verse 11. His name, no one knew but himself, verse 12. But John informs us that his name is the “Word of God,” verse 13. Suggesting that only Jesus can understand the mystery of His own being. The very being of Jesus makes him God, John 10:30.

As the serpent beguiled the mother and father of humanity in Genesis; thereby, forever having changed the course of history. Moving on quickly, the serpent gave the world Islam. The instrument of evil designed to deceive many. The world is engaged in a real world war which most being unable to come grips with. Despite the constant explosions of violence. Because the shape shifting devil, can appear as a serpent for deceptive purposes. Like as an Islamic cleric announcing, that Islam is a peaceful religion.

Jesus indicated that “deception” would become more prominent as a sign of His coming and the end of the age. The lesson of deception suggests a devastating hoax. Like what occurred in Genesis to the parents of humanity.

The argument here is that Muslims are equal to the deception referenced by Jesus, as he answered the question presented by his disciples. Because Islam is a deception orchestrated by Satan. Being able to shift his shape from a fallen angel, with the ability to take possession of human beings from within them. So as to execute the deception, saying there is no god but Allah; thereby deceiving many into accepting a god other than Christ. Don’t be hoodwinked!

Being on the cutting edge of danger

Among other things done that day, Jesus appointed another seventy. And sent them two by two into every city where he himself would go. Telling them that the harvest was great but the laborers were few. With a degree of sadness, one suspects because he instructed them to pray that the Lord of the harvest would send more laborers, Luke 10:1-2.

And it all started with a simple expression from Jesus, “You are Peter, and upon this rock will I build my church.” And how, about this statement?  Because you are Peter, the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (scriptural text:Matthew 16:18b).

But all that occurs once the blood dripped body of Christ has erased the curse that separated the created from the creator. Then life takes a redemptive focus; whereby, we the redeemed take the Christ message of redemption to all places where Jesus himself would go. (scriptural text:Luke 10:1). He will or has been there because we have learned from previous discussions that He is us, and we are Him. So wherever the redeemed go, there is Jesus also. (scriptural text:1 Corinthians 6:19; 1 John 5:7; Luke 10:1).

Making the redeemed far more important to world affairs, than most suspected. Taking upon themselves the solidification of the fortitude which is characteristic, when Christ redeems one. It’s a prelude to baptism, when fortitude and mystical character come together. Making the new born in Christ ready to say bye bye slain wolves and hello harvested lamb’s. (scriptural text:Luke 10:1-3.

These redeemed, who become harvesters for he Lord of the harvest. Have no need for cemented palaces, held together by steel rods and made pretty with stained glass windows and other exterior and interior decoratives. Because each of the redeemed; is that Christ named Peter, a church in the truest sense. Christ is the church, in the redeemed. Who was seen by John, as that vesture dipped in blood; and his name is called the Word of God. That hell, itself can’t prevail against. (scriptural texts: Revelation 19:13; Matthew 16:18).

Whenever, innocent blood is spilt. vengeance is the order of the day. But the Christ harvester approaches vengeance from a different perspective. The vengeance occurs with the slaying of the wolves through the redemptive blood of Christ. Nonviolence applied against violence is a gift from God for making a wrong right.

For this discussion, this is who the redeemed are. We are flesh and blood absent steel rods and wood. Not made fancy by decorative like paraphernalia. But rather, our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, whom we have from God. The redeemed didn’t come to redemption free. We were bought with a price. We are not free spirits, who do our own thing. That doesn’t mean mean, that His harvesters are denied the use of their imaginations in being creative in this war against the wolves. If anything, ones imaginative creativity is enhanced. Because we are commanded to glorify God in our bodies (his church), and in our spirit (His presences). (scriptural texts:1Corinthians 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:16-18; 1 John 5:7).

Most likely, though with a sigh of disappointment because being a laborer for the Lord of the harvest was then, as it is today, a dangerous decision. Knowing that not many would respond to his call. Saying nevertheless, “Go your ways, behold! I send you forth as lambs among wolves,” Luke 10:3.

Monumental words, indeed for the Christ warrior. What chance for victory does a lamb have against a wolf? Obviously none! Until the following is considered and understood.

Not long afterward, Jesus made this historical announcement. “You are Peter! And upon this rock, I will build my church. And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,” Matthew 16:18. ‘Good bye slain wolves hello victorious lambs.’

Section 11:Amazing Soul Reading

What a book, the Bible is because it’s more than inked pages on paper and made into a book. Then gobbled up by enthusiast, who create concrete palaces held together by rods of steel and wood. Beautified with stained glass windows. And they called those palaces churches where the living God dwells. And to a greater or lesser extent, it is so. The problem is that the lesser extent is greater than the former. And there lies twisted in shambles  the Jesus vision, when he said, “… the harvest is great but the laborers are few …,” Luke 10:2.

In that the Bible is said to be more than inked pages on paper, what makes it so? The visionary John saw this angelic revelation. Declared to be a ‘fellow servant’ from among ‘the brethren’ having the testimony of Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:10. With John seeing the following. “And he was clothed with a vesture (body of Christ) dipped in blood; and his name is called the Word of God,” Revelation 19:13. And that is what makes the Bible more than inked pages on paper.

The Bible is the living breathing personage of Jesus Christ. Who dwells, within every person that has experienced the newness of life that only Jesus can bring about. And here is your proof, “What!” ‘Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who dwells in you, whom you have of God, and you are not your own,”‘ 1 Corinthians 6:19. And here is your proof with the three being one, “For there are three that bear witness in heaven. The Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one,” 1 John 5:7.

Unexplainable by human reasoning, but our Bible is the personage of Jesus, who speaks from within us. Manifested through the triune presences of the trinity. Speaking from within us but captured by our outward sensory perceptions.

As you think about all that reflect upon these words, and gain a greater appreciation as to who you really are. “I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and my soul knows very well,” Psalms 139:14.

Section 111:Single Most Potent Weapon

If you indeed, hope to be a warrior for the Lord of the Harvest, then understand the weapon at your disposal for the slaying of the wolves. With wolves uses as a dysphemism for everything that interferes with the edicts from the Lord of the harvest. (scriptural text:Luke 10:1-3).

The previous discussion set up what this discussions focus would be. Which is the slaying of the wolves, who are out to destroy the harvesters for the Lord. This is an all out bloody war, so his warriors need potent weapons. Hopefully, readers were able to digest the uniqueness of who they are as Christians. Brought about by the living breathing communicative ability of the trinity from within us. Able to capture our sensory perceptions from a book called the Bible.

Having such knowledge introduces us to one such weapon. Which is a truth from, Hebrews 4:12. “For the Word of God (Jesus) is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart.”

As the Word of God, takes the harvester into direct confrontation with the wolves. Using the aforementioned scripture to war successfully against those wolves. With the harvester having unusual victorious maneuverability once one understands the arts of spiritual warfare. But not an easy school to graduate from because it requires the knowledge of the Peter principal. As being one of the many pairs of seventy disciplined and determined to reap an abundant harvest.

Sun-Tzu, a master in secular warfare offered this critique, “Be extremely subtle to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious to the point of soundless. Thereby, you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.” Inspiring, but only, at best, attainable partially by becoming someone you are not.

Such a critique of war is only attainable because of the Christ, who dwells within his harvesters. And puts at their disposal an array of invisible moves and weapons.  That are not of human origin, and found in Hebrews 4:12. And that’s how the Christ harvester becomes formless and soundless. Becoming mysterious mystics. That’s how the lamb’s become the director of the wolves fate. No beheading’s no suicide bomber’s and with no need of intimidation to persuade compromise to avoid violence.

Section 1V:Dropping Names

Names what stories they tell. So lets develop the name of Peter from its supernatural mysticism perspective. Because associated with the name Peter is a starling discovery because its a generic name. Reaching a specific people, as being of ferocious fortitude. Steeped in mystical character because of a very life transforming experience. These are not your happy go lucky purposeless driven Bonnie’s and Clyde’s. Nope! Not at all because they are passion driven against a challenge with the odds against them. But that didn’t seem to matter. So stick around and find out why.

“You are Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church,” Matthew 16:18. There are many, and perhaps, I’ll address some more of them later. Once the blood dripped body of Christ has erased the curse that separated the created from the creator. Then life takes on a redemptive focus; whereby, we the redeemed take the Christ message of redemption to all places where Jesus himself would go, Luke 10:1. He has been there because the redeemed are representative of Peter, as being rock solid individuals. Who have no need for cement palaces held together by steel rods and made pretty with stained glass windows.

Because each of the redeemed is that Christ built church. Christ is the church, who was seen by John, as that vesture dipped in blood. That even hell can not prevail against. We know that hell will always make gallants attempt to prevail against us, His church. But without success, though many have, and others will have to make the ultimate death sacrifice. Because Jesus said, “The servant is not greater than his master.” Christians in America know little about about persecution as followers of Jesus. That experience may change with persecutions, prosecutions, and death becoming a common experience because of allegiance to Jesus Christ.
For this discussion, this is what the redeemed are. We are flesh and blood, absent concrete, steel rods and wood. Not made fancy by decorative interior ornaments or church steeples beautified by stained glass windows. But rather, our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, whom we have from God. Willing to go the distance for Jesus, no matter what the cost.

The redeemed didn’t come to redemption free. We were bought with a price. We are not free spirits, who do our own thing. But are commanded to glorify God in our bodies (his church) and in our spirit (his presence), 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.

Hopefully, the question has been answered. What chance does a lamb have for victory over a wolf? Every chance because the promise is eternal. The gates of hell will not prevail against my church, the redeemed, Matthew 16:18b. Doesn’t get any more powerful than that!

In addition, as the discussion continued the mystic power of the word was discussed as a weapon from God. Concluding with the significance of the name Peter. The name of fortitude built around character. And character is underlined by knowing, who we are, and life’s purpose. Through the embodiment of Christ in and through the redeemed.

With these four sections, a package of discussions has been presented for spiritual understanding and growth. Allowing the Christ harvester to slay the wolf. And reap a bountiful harvest, for the Lord  of the harvest. (scriptural text:Luke 10:1-3).

But, this too, needs to be understood. Because Jesus said it, “The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you,” John 15:20. Through out our scriptures, the lamb is picturesque of blood sacrifices. If Christ himself was bloodied, as a sacrifice, think not that any of the redeemed will not experience the same fate. If the redeemed, venture out to make the world Christ accountable.

May God be gracious, and bring us together to fight some very necessary battles. For that to happen, the redeemed must be the embodiment of the aforementioned scriptures.

The dark side of the supernatural

A terrible panorama beings with Revelation 4:1, … “Come up here John! and I will show you things which must be hereafter.”

Moving quickly, we discover a great dragon, the “one who deceives the whole world” was expelled from heaven. His angels accompanied him. We know from that they were dispatched to our world with great anger. (Scriptural texts:Revelation 12:9;12).

Just think of all the time people spend trying to sort out world affairs. With one short verse the cause of troubling world affairs is made understandable. Everything has a beginning, so when did “the great dragons” explosion and earths woes begin. We don’t know for sure. But most likely, right after God had finished with his six day creation and rested on the seventh day. From that event, the world became engaged in a deadly war. A war that few know much about. And many with some familiarity with this war, do not understand the significances of this conflict. Because it really intensified with the birth of Christ, with that  great dragon being full aware that he had met his formidable foe.

The birth and death of Jesus was God’s answer to that rebellion in heaven. Now we are engaged in a war with “that great dragon against our Lord and his church. It means that the cause of Christ and his church is best defended by good preparation. Which requires the necessity of knowing something strategically valuable about that great dragon. And by all means, avoid taking ones enemy for granted.

So here we discover that Satan who is that great deceiver has a core of fallen angels here with him. And just what is it that this band of fallen angels have in mind for us, where you and I live?

Most likely, as the great deceiver with his group of loyalist. Cunning deception which will manifest itself in confusion. Showing itself in the manifestation of doubt. Forging a convincing ideology of not being able to distinguish between the believable and unbelievable.

With the great dragon and its cohorts focusing their attention upon the church as the primary agent of unbelievability.

When the “great dragon” discovered that its forced residency was upon the earth. He immediately began persecuting the woman who gave birth to the male child, Revelation 12:13. This was foretold in Matthew 24:9, “Then shall they deliver you (Jesus) and (and then his church) up to be afflicted, and they shall kill you; and you shall be hated of all nations for my name sake.” Verse 8, “All these things shall be the beginning of sorrows.”

Neither this padre nor any other believer should think that we are important to the great dragon and its fallen band of angels. In their conquest to persecute the child, we are Not! Christ lives beyond his resurrection through his church. This is a conquest of destruction that must be obliterated in order for the great dragon and its followers to succeed. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come,” Matthew 24:14. Of course the persecution will never succeed. Because Christ will always have followers, who will announce the necessity of repentance. Along with acceptance of Christ, as the Father’s sacrificial lamb for our sins. Which is our rich Christian heritage, through out the centuries. “And, they over came him by the blood of the Lamb, and by their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death,” Revelation 12:11.

Because the persecuted woman is the witnessing church, along with her offspring through the centuries. This connection is derived from the expression of Revelation 12:13. “… and when the dragon saw that he was cast into the earth. He persecuted the woman…” Also note, …”Woe unto the inhabitants of the earth…,” verse12. Then note verse 14, And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness. Into her place where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half of a time, from the face of the serpent. Referred to as the “Abomination of Desolation,” Matthew 24:15, or the “great tribulation” of verse 21, the most horrific experiences of humanity never to be matched. In verse 14, we see the synergy of symbolism coming into play. The synergy of Exodus 19:4, “You have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bore you on “eagles wings” AND BROUGHT YOU UNTO MYSELF.” “As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young. Spreading broad her wings taking them upon her wings,” Deuteronomy 32:11. Rejoice God will provide and protect!

Hopefully, fellow believers in Christ have learned something of strategic importance concerning the enemy of humanity and the church of Jesus Christ. Allowing for proper spiritual preparation. An enemy to be feared and never taken for granted. Because deception is his primary trademark for weakening the faith of believers which is the only way the great dragon and his fallen angelic cast can penetrate the church.

In that I have written some about this, you now know why the churches are chastised a number of times in Revelation chapters two and three. And more importantly, why the church is called into action. Recall the counsel and the gold with soothing ointment for healing of Revelation 3:18. Followed by the very serious exhortation, “As many as I love, I rebuke and correct. Be zealous, and therefore repent,” verse 19.

Many details remain to be filled in between the lines of this discussion. Open the Living Word study it, master it, and then announce its message throughout your church. Reach out to your community through its various suitable locations. How about in front of a Muslim mosque where evil congregates in mass. Do it peacefully and perhaps silently. Wearing billboards and carrying signs announcing scriptures of repentance, deliverance, peace and love. Our forefathers gave us a precious jewel which is freedom of assembly and expression. This padre is available to help organize such events. Found through the navigation links contact us tab.

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

Ghosts and goblins

Tis the time for the paranormal. A time when the unexplainable occurs. An awareness that the unexplainable goes beyond ghosts and goblins by creating a sense that it it’s not make believe.

There is a land of make believe. A place of fantasy and haunted experiences. Its got to be so or why would the majority of people argue that it is make believe. So we’ll see, if it’s make believe or not. Time will tell which it is because from that ancient land comes the eerie glow of surprise desperate to burst over the horizon and do what needs to be done. And that is more scary than any ghosts, or goblin paranormal adventures of the season.

They say hindsight is better than foresight for settling the real from the unreal. So at the beginning of the modern era lived a guy said to be a seer. And we all know that a seer is a person, who is able through the supernatural to see what the real is all about.

He said this, times will produce plagues like the Black Death. A plague which killed 75-200 million people through out the known world during the years of 1346-53. Only He didn’t call them plagues. He referred to them as pestilences. One of them is upon us today coming our way from Africa and tagged as the EBOLA virus. How many will it kill? Unknown for sure but with the potential to match or exceed that fourteenth century plague. The people of the United States have every right to be afraid despite what the government is saying. Especially as some are saying it’s possible that Ebola can be airborne. And that’s just one eerie glow of surprise desperate burst over the horizon and do what needs to be done.

Then there is ISSI! How eerie is that glow on the horizon bursting over and doing what needs to be done? An uniformed army without a navy or air force but with lots of money. Fighting with weapons taken from an a fleeing army trained and equipped by the worlds greatest super power. Who doesn’t have any money except what it borrows from China. And who, is an ally of Iran and Russia. Tis the season for the paranormal that will not be defeated.

Why this pestilence and war? This is the answer from another seer. For if the firstfruit is holy (Jews), the lump (Gentiles) is also holy; if the root is holy (Israel) so are the branches (House of Israel-America foremost among the House of Israel), so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree. (Source:Romans 11:16-17).

Know this with absolute certainty Israel as the root of God Almighty gave birth to the House of Israel, particularly the United States. Antisemitism is growing in America and led by the Obama administration. Which is the surest way to bring God’s judgment upon the United States. The Israeli American grafted rooting is as sacred as marriage between a man and a woman. The latter in it self has put Uncle Sam in his grave. The former will fill his grave with dirt. Making the United States an irrelevant nation.
Therefore, to reject Jesus Christ as ones Savior is a sin. Which will bear judgments upon both individuals, as well as their nations. In the very real now and in the hear after because, “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” (Text:Hebrews 9:27). And life proves that dying can be terrifying and a gruesome experience.

And so it will it will be for the House of Israel, unless some Noah’s are found. Who can move God to be merciful again because these Noah’s will find a way to persuade God to change His mind. Because God is looking for people who are just and perfect in their generation. People who walk with God. (Text:Genesis 6:9).

God’s chronicler declares our liberation to occur through prayer and this padre suspects action. That action to be determined individually, as each stirs their church into action. Because the church is God’s perfect remedy, for Americans, who have forsaken Jesus and turned against Israel. And thus, sparing the nation from becoming a foregone people through the crushing judgments of God. Just like it was in the days of Noah.

O! How awesome are the weapons God has at His disposal to humble and if necessary to destroy the arrogant. Some of those weapons He has put into our hands. None greater than this one given to us through another of His chroniclers. “If my people, who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to their prayers made in this place.” (Texts:2 Chroniclers 7:14-15).

Texts for pestilences and wars:Matthew 24:7.

World drama at its best

Few Americans can imagine their nation ever being under Muslim governance. And to them, it’s even more absurd to think that the world will be made up of only Islamic states. It does seem like a rather bizarre supposition; however, it seems from Christian scriptures it’s a pretty reliable supposition. Especially when viewed from current world events. And those scriptures suggest that as history unfolds the false prophet will be a Muslim. Now what about the Antichrist, will he, or she, be a Muslim?

What a time to be alive! As divine providence puts the final touches upon one of histories final chapters. It’ll create fear with its very scary unfoldments causing many to think that death is a better option.

First a look at a long held Christian suppositions concerning the false prophet and the Antichrist. Because of protestant hatred of the Catholic church, it had been argued that the false prophet would be a pope. Some protestants are suggesting that Pope Francis is the false prophet. Their arguments are based upon Revelation 17:10-11. There has been a long succession of popes. Revelation 17:10 presents just the last seven popes. Telling us that five have fallen (dead). One is, Emeritus Pope Benedict XV1, and the other has not yet come (written A.D.95). And when he comes, (Pope Francis, 13 March 2013) he must continue for a short time. To make that configuration work, they speculate that Pope John Paul 11, was the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eight, (final pope) and is of the seven, and is going to perdition, Revelation 17:11. In other words, Pope Francis they argue is demon manifestation of Pope John Paul 11.

Such reasoning is based upon three suppositions. One from 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, “…, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, declaring himself that he is God.”

It is probable that that demon has not yet to entered Pope Francis. Pope John Paul 11, died, 02 April 2005, and upon his death was dispatched by God to the bottomless pit thought to be hell. But will possess Pope Francis during this future event, if their analogy is accurate. “Then the fifth angel sounded. And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit, smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts (suspected demons) came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, …, but only those men who do not have the seal of God upon their foreheads. …. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. …. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. …. And they had as a king over them, the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, (the Devil) but in the Greek, he has the name Apollyon, (a destroyer). One woe is past. Behold, still two more are coming after these things.” Revelation 9:1-12.

Fueling such speculation is a very ancient prophecy by the 12th. century Archbishop Malachy of Ireland and given to the reigning Pope. And never revealed because it was hidden in a Vatican vault. And discover by a Vatican librarian in the 16th. century. According to the prophecy there would be 112 popes. It seems that Emeritus Pope Benedict XV1, was the 111th. pope. Making his successor, Pope Francis the last pope. Pundits stimulated by such books and movies like, “The Da Vinci Code,” and, “Angels and Demons.” Sought out the aforementioned scriptures to verify the prophecy of St. Malachy.

Not a part of the Malachy prophecy is the biblical account of the Antichrist who is the accomplice with the false prophet. Our third supposition.

It goes this way with the ten horns of Revelation 17:12, being the final grouping of ten nations, who will be the final nations of the European Union. It’s the fulfillment of Revelation 13:3, “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 the beast.” In short, this is in reference to the Roman Empire that destroyed the Jews second temple in Jerusalem and subsequently was destroyed itself. The world will marvel because this Roman Empire will live again to torment the world through a ten state European Union. Its leader will be the prophesied Antichrist, so some believe, but not this padre. Those pundits believe this Antichrist will be a German. With some speculating that the Antichrist will be German, Chancellor Angela Merkel. The current twenty eight state E.U. is held together and controlled by Germany. In other words, Germany is Europe. To fit such an account the E.U. will have to shrink by eighteen nation states.

This padre has classified these various classifications as suppositions because of there uncertain accuracies. There is no doubt about the scripture account. The doubt is about the personages and configurations that is questionable.

In the meantime don’t reject what has been discussed because it could be very accurate. The Bible doesn’t provide names, dates or configurations of nations states necessary to bring closure to prophesied scriptures. But we are given clues to help us see the way for closure of prophesied events. Tomorrow:A different perspective.

How a win becomes a loss.

Israel will stay put! And when forced again to defend itself, this small nation will defend herself. But this time, Israel will absorb a terrible beating. From a double tongued Muslim maybe from Turkey, who will double talk Israel into signing a peace covenant. But Israel will survive because it’s a promise from God Almighty.

The devoted of Psalms 65:4, understand this deceiver of John’s revelation to be God’s Antichrist as portrayed in Revelation 13:1;3. Paul called him a thief in the night. And warned, 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,” 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3.

The tale of the fig tree is one of the center pieces of modern world history for understanding world events. Daniel wants us to focus on that fig tree by giving us this account, “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (each week equals 1 year totaling 7 years), but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to the sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even the consumption which is determined, is poured out on the desolate,” Daniel 9:27. That account is really about Israels third temple. Because those temples are the road signs of God’s intentions, as the maker of the only history that really matters. So what does that tell us? Follow that history, so one can understand world events before they happen. Because it’ll take one to histories grand finale which will not occur until the third temple is built and destroyed.

This padre often refers to God as the mysterious one because he’s not always explicit when pronouncing his revelations. But his mysteriousness is discoverable because he talks to us through his privileged ones like Daniel. The phrase, “he shall bring an end to the sacrifice and offering,” is key to earth’s tumultuous end. These temples were to give testimony to the greatness of God and were exquisitely built. It took King Solomon twenty years to accomplish its building. All this is important because it helps us understand Israels horrific defeat. By a coalition of nations and the times surrounding histories curious fig tree. By nations, suspected to be governments who make up the League of Arab nations. Led by Russia, king of the North. That doesn’t mean that it’ll be the atheistic Russia we know today. Russia has its own Muslim community to deal with. And it may well be that Gog and Magog from the North may well be an emerging Islamic empire, yet to be born. Want to know what the future holds? Keep your focus on that stuff. Because, it’s tied to the tale of the fig tree.

How about Pope Francis’ historic gathering on, 08 June 2014, on Pentecostal Sunday which commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples. Chosen by Francis, perhaps,  to highlight himself as the broker of peace for the Middle East and beyond. Suggesting as he stood before the world that he’s God incarnate in the flesh, and as such, the spirit filled emissary for these troubled times and beyond. Could Francis be the beast of Revelation 13:1;3? Pay close attention to his papacy.

Gathered with him were the Israeli President Shimon Peres, a figure of no importance, as his office is mostly ceremonial. Absent from Satan’s nest was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, head of the Israeli government. Shunned by Francis, no doubt because he has urged the world to ignore Abbas’ new unity government which took office just last week. Because Netanyahu, no doubt understands that Abbas is the puppet of the puppeteering anti-Israeli Hamas group calling for Israels complete annihilation.

Unveiling Pope Francis’ gala as an instrument to humiliate and isolate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as having his shoes on the wrong feet. Not so, as his right foot is anchored correctly into his right shoe. It’s the Pope whose got his shoes and feet screwed up. And eventually the papacy will be no more, but Israel will be.

Prime Minister Netanyahu stood alone, on the secular world scene, as the E.U. and the U.S. stood in solidarity with Abbas’ unity government. But did, he stand alone? Yes, from the community of nations perspective. For Obama, its another betrayal by his presidency of Israel. Which as they accumulate, will cause America to be annihilated, note, Jeremiah 50:42; 51:33. The U.S. is the daughter of Babylon; more details, 20 June 2014, “How diplomacy fails in the Middle East.

To be continued tomorrow. Having asked the question, did P.M. Netanyahu really stand alone? The answer for understanding such a perspective requires a spirituality steeped in the mind of Christ.

One last thought about Francis’ historic Sunday. It’s a grand hoax to get Israel to do what God has forbidden. Recorded in Exodus 23:32-33, “You shall make no covenant with them, nor their gods. They shall not dwell in you land, lest they make you sin against me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.” To do so will trigger, Daniel 9:27, as aforementioned

Followed by a warning from King Hezekiah from Jerusalem itself, Isaiah 36:5-6, “I say you speak of having power for war; but they are mere words. Now whom do you trust that you rebel against me? Look! You are trusting in the staff of this broken reed, Egypt on which a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust him.” Egypt is symbolic for the community of nations. The United States is Americas Egypt. And pharaoh, is symbolic for world leaders. President Obama is Americas pharaoh.

Also at that historic gathering was Palestinian President Mahmound Abbas and the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartolomew coming to the Vatican for a time of prayer. With Francis planting the kiss of death on the cheeks of both presidents before a world wide audience. Because all that quartet will accomplish, whether by appearance or prayer. Amounts to a public relations stunt and then heightened by various sorts of praying. Amounting to chatter that will result in nothing more than showmanship.

What was really significant about the days events was the planting of an olive tree by the four men. Because the olive tree for Israel, and thus the world, is symbolic of Israels near destruction, after which will come peace on earth. The peace is pictured in Micah 4:4, “But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree. And no one shall make him afraid; for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken. Jesus gave this picturesque account for the timing of such peace in Matthew 24:32-34. Which is really about the end of the world as we know it, then Micah 4:4 will kick in.

If you want to know the prophetic history of the fig tree, two discussions are available. Back track the calendar to, 17 May 2014 and click on that date.

The Peter principle

In order to spare the United States from pending annihilation from from God’s enemies, the Muslim world, as present in recent discussions. A biblical plan was offered yesterday, and as said, scheduled for today will be a discussion around two eternal promises. But before America can escape its pronounced judgment for her sins. She must rid herself of an eternal plague that Peter discusses. Then in repentance, she must realign herself with Israel.

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there are false teachers among you. Who will secretly bring destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

And many will follow their destructive ways because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words: for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.” Texts:2 Peter 3:1-3.

Brief Commentary:For our era, make believe churches, who deny that Jesus Christ is God and the ultimate authority on all laws, social and cultural behaviors. This drags in politicians and issue influencers like the mass media. Opening for acceptance of an ideology that isn’t godly, like Islam. And acceptance of homosexuality, as a viable lifestyle. Said to cite just a few problems dooming America while many more exist.

Peter Principle #2:The curse of the ages. For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into the chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the people of the ungodly.

Peter Principle #3:Lawlessness of homosexuality. And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned to destruction, making them an example to those who would live ungodly; And delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked, for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds. Compare with, Romans 1:24-32.

Peter Principle #4:Right living worked for Noah and Lot. God’s eternal promise work. The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment. But it isn’t automatic, God’s mercy needs this forerunner. “If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Texts:2 Peter 2:4-9; 2 Chronicles 7:14.

And America through her people can join King Solomon and say, For he is good, for his mercy endures forever.” Text:2 Chronicles 5:13. Because the great injustice against God has been erased, the injustice of homosexuality.

Next:America is traveling a dangerous road and is promised annihilation, as discussed in recent postings. America must strengthen her allegiance with Israel. By not joining the chorus of nations severing their support for her. Failure to do so will only hasten the annihilation of the United States.

Days beyond imagination

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

His success comes cunning ability to deceive.

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

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

And that to the believers delight is his fatal mistake.
