Some say the ways of yesterday vibrate far into the future. And so, we have a first century event where we find a guy named Jesus being challenged by the hierarchy of His time. Saying, “Teacher rebuke your associates.” See Luke 19:39. It’s the song of the 21st century.

Jesus had managed to persuade their tax collector, Zacchaeus, to give Him residency. And while a guest of there, he found favor with Jesus. All because something resonated with Zacchaeus causing him to say what Jesus wanted to hear. So Jesus, said to Zacchaeus, “Today salvation has come to this house. For the Son of Man has come to seek and save that which was lost.” During the time of Zacchaeus, and ours, the only requirement for salvation was, and is, to believe that Jesus was who He said he was. See Luke 19:1-10.

Jesus was doing lots of unusual things with His behavior becoming the talk of the town.

With His associates firing up the public with their constant rhetoric of the greatness of Jesus. Shouting publicly, “Blessed is the King, who comes in the name of the LORD. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest.” See Luke 19:38.

And that’s why the hierarchy wanted Jesus to silence His associates. To hear that a king was coming, no doubt raised their fear levels that a revival was underway that would undermine their authority. Lets do it again!

This is the second in series of discussions about misery. With the universe, and its residents having a ghostly awareness about misery. It’s unsettling and seldom talked about. Even the innate substances that make up our universe share this awareness. And will respond, in a negative manner, should the God message delivered and available today is silenced by decree of the governing hierarchies. Which is the goal of the curse. Fostered by that shape shifting entity identified as the serpent from yesterdays discussion.

It’s the war of the worlds. Winning that war is the only prospect that can cure the curse. One person at a time. Because, the curse is the cornerstone of all misery. See yesterdays discussion.

This is how Jesus responded to the silencing of His message by His messengers. It’s the heart of today’s discussion. But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these keep silent, the stones would immediately.” See Luke 19:40.

God and Satan best of friends

Ignore the ads! They are nothing more than an attempt to get your money. And to give you as little satisfaction as possible for money spent. I’m stuck with them because this a word press blog.

You’ve heard it said best of friends can become the worst of enemies. That might have been the relationship God had with Satan. Because at one time God referred to him as Lucifer meaning brightness.

In Ezekiel, we have this glimpse between the two. Said the Lord God unto him.”You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering …. You were the anointed cherub …. I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God …. You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, until iniquity was found in you…. and you sinned; therefore, I cast you as profane thing out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you …. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, that they might gaze at you. You defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities …. therefore; I brought fire from your midst, it devoured you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who saw you. All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you. You have become a horror, and shall be no more forever.” (scriptural texts:Ezekiel 28:12b-19).

Isaiah adds this to the mix. “How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How are you cast to the ground, who did weaken the nations. Because you said in your heart. I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God …. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High. Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see you shall narrowly look upon you, and consider you saying, is this the man, who made the earth to tremble, who did shake kingdoms? Who made the world like a wilderness, and destroyed its cities, who opened not the house of his prisoners?” (scriptural texts Isaiah 14:12-17).

From those verses we have a friendship ruined; and a description, for what is ailing individuals, and plaguing the community of nations with evil.

Some say all good things have to end, wrong, good things never end. Set backs might occur but good never ends because God said so. Ultimately, we’ll have a new heaven and earth. With focal point being Jerusalem where the King of kings will rule. After, He has made right all the wrongs enumerated above. It’s all evil things that must end, again because God said so!

Now the end! With the aforementioned scriptures having their final say From the living breathing Word of God. Where we find a trio of characters cast into hell. “And the devil, that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire, and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.” See Revelation 20:10. We know from the aforementioned scriptures, who the devil is. Lucifer the predetermined bright jewel of God’s creation, perfect in all his ways, who shared God’s Garden in Eden with his Creator. But who turned against Him to challenge His deity, by determining to become God.

The beast some think is the Roman papacy. With false prophet being the antichrist, who will will emerge as a global political leader. Both receiving their power from the great dragon that old serpent called the Devil and Satan. (Scriptural text: Revelation 17:13; Revelation 12:9). “And the beast was taken and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, which deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and them that worshiped his image. Both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with with brimstone. (scriptural text:Revelation 19:20; 20:10). They be tormented for ever and ever.

That will not be the fate of everyone a minority declares. According to Malachi 4:1, mere human beings thrown into the lake of fire will be destroyed. But they will not be tormented through out all eternity. A concept without eternal torment in the fires of hell. Should it catch fire would be a disaster for the clergy of doom and gloom. Such schemes keep the pews well occupied and the bank accounts enriched.

While devil who is non-human, along with his angels, who became demons, they are the ones tormented forever. (scriptural text:Matthew 25:41). And of course Satan’s chief confidants, the anti-christ and the false prophet, as already noted.

a game changer

Ignore the ads! They are not supported by this Padre. Ads are nothing more than an attempt to get your money. And to give you as little satisfaction as possible. I’m stuck with them because this a word press blog.

It was said in closing paragraph from yesterdays discussion that there is a sickness found in John’s gospel. And that, Paul provides the cure.

Though the sickness is recorded by John, it’s compounded by Jesus himself. And for emphasis He repeats Himself. Saying, “And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father in heaven maybe glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” See John 14:13-14. Emphatically, this Padre asserts it’s not going to happen! It’s all inclusive, so if Jesus doesn’t answer someones prayer does that mean that Jesus is a deceiver? NO!

So the clergy, when confronted by parishioners inquiring as to why their prayers seem to fall upon deaf ears. The standard answer which is not very satisfying to the seekers. Who are often told that their prayers weren’t offered according to will of God. And most clergy, have a repertoire of responses in order to prove their point

Here’s one of their favorites. Jesus knows what you are in need of before you ask him. And he, or she, as good pastors of the seeking sheep open their Bibles to prove their point. Here it is from Jesus Himself, “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in a secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think they shall be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.” See Matthew 6:6-8. Must have been a vain repetition or something you really didn’t need. Case closed, or is it?

Here’s what you need to know in order to avoid confusion. First, Jesus was talking to His disciples. He promised to do what is recorded in John 14:13-14. And often for them, He was faitful to His word. Secondly, Jesus came born of Mary, and destined by the Father to be their Messiah. And as their Messiah, He came to fulfill the prophetic promises to establish God’s kingdom on this earth. But the Jews rejected Jesus, as their Messiah. See John 1:11. And forfeited the establishment of His kingdom here, at that time. John 14:13-14, applied to His disciples, and the people had they accepted Jesus as their Messiah. The disciples are no longer here, nor has the Kingdom of God been established. Plain and simple, John 14:13-14 isn’t applicable today. Because, the Gospels were designed to announce the coming of the Christ. In fulfillment of the Abrahamic promises. The Jews who lived during the time of the gospels were under the law estblished by Moses. And all the temple resposibilites, instituted for the Jews by God through Moses. Which were, still in effect during the early chapters of the book of Acts.

Things changed, when God directed the Apostle Paul to offer the gospel of grace to the Jews and Gentiles. Don’t believe anything the clergy tells you. Unless you can find support for what they are saying in the Bible. This is complicated and needs to be taught. Concerning the past, and the change, here is what Peter wrote, “…, and consider the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation. As also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him has written to you. As also in his epistles, speaking in them things hard to understand. Which are some things hard to understand which some people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the scriptures,” 2 Peter 3:15-16. This padre is available to unravel this horbile mess of the modern day church. Done upon request free of any payments for services provided. However, God does know what we all need before we ask Him.

So is Jesus in the prayer answering business today? Sometimes. For tomorrow, the how and when, the promised cure, with sickness made sick.

no greater evil

The scenarios are an synopsis of yesterdays terror today. As was this yesterday, it’s today is the same. The differance is the calendar date and Islamic thugs. After all, we have centuries of history to prove its authenticity reaching us today. Proven by web searches.

“Saudi embassy confirms UK terrorist had been in Saudi Arabia. There embassy says while there he taught English.” Source:The Times of Israel.

What The times didn’t inquire about was what Khalid Masood was doing there while not teaching? Easy answer! Being radicalized! He learned his art well driving his Gray Hyundai 140 over the Westminster bridge plowing his car into as many people as possible. Arriving at his planned destination the Houses of Parliament. There he leaped from his car fatefully stabbing a police officer.

Only to earn his just reward, as police shot and killed him. One less Muslim maniac to contend with.

Furthermore, it’s a serious mistake to consider Saudi Arabia an ally. It’s long been rumored that the Saudis were active participants in the 9/11 attacks. And are, the financial source for the construction of Islamic mosques through the United States. Which are nothing more than military fortresses, from which they will emerge to attack us, when the time is right. Those mosques are Americas Trojan Horse!

Better take to heart the prophecy of the great Jewish seer, Moses. Who warned, Muslims are a wild and unmanageable people. Always at war with themselves and others. See Genesis 16:11-12. The Apostle Paul said get rid of Muslims. Because they will jihad the world until they replace Judeo-Christians cultures and values with Islam. See Galatians 4:29-30.

divine unction what is it

If you want to eradicate world trauma that explodes violently in the home, the market place, or wherever people of significant numbers are found. Look to the theater of the Muslim home, market place, or wherever people of significant numbers are found. There they’ll behead their own kind, or you, or blow them up, or you. Employ brutal torture on their own kind, or you.

Where did it get its beginning? Centuries ago in a land called Canaan. Today the land is referred to as Palestine. Requiring an historical journey going back to the ancient lands of Abraham and Mohammad. That is important because it explains Muslim brutality among themselves, and reaching the community of nations around the world. Even innocents like you, who have no axes to grind with anyone Muslim or otherwise. All it takes is for the innocents to experience Muslim madness is to be at the right place, at the wrong time. And boom! No one should have to experience minor injuries, brutal ones or death. Because, Muslims have an ax to grid with the world.

For starters, to eradicate the Muslim threat to yourself and others. Start by supporting President Trump’s ban on Muslim entering the country. But it must go beyond the seven countries named in his executive order. Muslims in America fear that order because of a sense of divine unction which works mysteriously. It’s that small voice from within us that talks to us. Here you have to be careful because that voice could be the voice of darkness. The cause of schizophrenia and complete mental disorders and psychotic breakdowns. You’ll know if the voice is of divine providence, if you can match your inward unction with scriptures. For now, most of God’s Ten Commandments apply. Like the command, “You will not kill,” or, “You will not bear false witness against your neighbor.” You must pray these words, “Direct my steps by Your Word. Let no iniquity have dominion over me. Redeem me from the oppression of man. That I may keep Your precepts.

The end result is that Muslim population in America must be reduced. If not their numbers will ontinue grow, and with that growth America will experience some of the aforementioned hostilities. The greater their numbers the more often we’re likely to experience their booms!

The whole persona of Donald Trump is unusual. From the typical perspective of being so unconventional, his presidency should fail. Because he has a tendency to govern from instinct, and not hordes of briefing materials. With limited help from his cabinet, or from his chief of staff. And others, key for presidential success. However, he seems to rely heavily upon maverick outsiders who are far to the right on the political spectrum. And for this writer, that’s very scary!

Be careful with the following by not trying to apply it unwittingly upon others, as a tool for evaluation and judgment. Here I’m talking about the gift of divine unction. In the above, some suggestions were made for safety. It’s something Jesus talked about centuries ago. When He said, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name. He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” See John 14:26; then, “Nevertheless, I will tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.” See John 16:7.

More tomorrow.

engine lighting how its done

There is a perfect formula that ignites the engines for wealth. And from that wealth emerges the brain trusts of some gifted individuals. Bringing their geniuses together in perfect harmony, as though in harmony one with the other. Creating all the necessary infrastructures for the making of the greatness of America, whether during peace and prosperity or war and depletion.

But for that to occur, all the forces from humble ingenuity, to the exalted laboratories for scientific invention, to the scholars of academia who produce an informed electorate. Instilling an awareness that Americans knew that they dwelt in the courts of divine providence from whence all prosperity flowed. That was yesterday, but which has pretty much disappeared from the American conscience today.

Here is a twenty first century phenomena which is not likely to repeat itself in America of today. Because of its offensiveness to the conscience of a society wanting to be pluralistic. Pluralism by its very nature must deny notions of divine intervention. Because divine intervention, by its very nature is exclusionary. It’s recorded this way, “Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is none like Me. Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient time the things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.'” See Isaiah 46:9-10.

So in times long gone, the President, My Fellow Americans: Last night, I spoke with you about the fall of Rome. I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join me in prayer. Almighty God, our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give them strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest until the victory is won. The darkness will rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with violence of war.

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among Thy people. They yearn for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home, fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them. Help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in the hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayers be on our lips, invoking Thy help in our efforts.

Give us strength too. Strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contribution we make in the physical and mental support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impact our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord give us faith. Give us faith in Thee, faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment. Let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogance. Lead us in the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world of unity that will spell a sure peace. A peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt , June 6, 1944

a will and testament history maker

His son and grandsons looked on as the old man spoke. God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me. Saying, “I’m going to make you prosperous and numerous, and I will make you a multitude of people, and will give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession. I’m adopting your two sons, who were born to you here in Egypt before I joined you; they shall have equal status with Reuben and Simeon. But any children born after are yours; they will come after their brothers in matters of inheritance,” Genesis 48:1-6.

Approximate inheritance date 1400 years before the birth of Christ. If the land was occupied by people other than Jews, they lost title to the property to the Jews by Jacob’s testament. Because, the testament was sanctioned by God Almighty.

It’s forever settled all of Palestine or Canaan the biblical termed used belongs to the offspring of Jacob. Despite conquerors, who came and possessed and then divided the lands. Declaring others to be the rightful owners of the land.

So here we are in the 21st century and Palestine is very much in dispute as to ownership. Few nations beside Israel recognizes Palestine as the lawful property of the Jews. Those other nations, who understand Canaan to be the property of the Jews are those nations who were once part of Great Britain’s Commonwealth of Nations. And the United States, who was born of Jewish stock. It’s what bonds Israel and the United States. Two states but one people. But their voices are being peeled away slowly, but in a sure manner. Leading to this colossal event with its fitting aftermath. Which will be a discussion, for tomorrow.

sad sunday

Most of our churches are entrepreneurships. Selling the art of empire building through the falsehoods of deception.

So do your self a favor, if you are a church person and exit. Start Jesus groups in your homes, and learn how to do the God thing through the Jesus way. Breathing some life saving oxygen into the lungs of our beloved America.

And if you, by good fortune are one of the un-churched do the same.

when the gods meet heaven reacts

Magnificent documents our nations Declaration of Independence. With its Constitution enabling independence to work. With our Bill of Rights serving as an appendage guarantor that the people will safe guard its sacredness. Freedoms width, length, depth and height was made hallow by God Almighty Himself through those documents.

The spindles of self government could only come from a supreme being. History adequately demonstrates that the human species left to its own natural nature will only govern from self interest. That is exactly why the writers, who incorporated God’s breath into what would become the United States of America fled Europe. They experienced the tyranny of kings who governed from a Christian perspective. Which is vastly different from governing from a Christ perspective. It’s the Christ perspective that made America the envy of the world.

The congregation of the gods must have decided unanimously as they radiated divinely this recording into the preamble of our Constitution. (Psalms 82:1) “We the People of the United States in order to form a more perfect Union ….” Preceded by this, “How long will you judge unjustly, and show partially to the wicked? (Psalms 82:2) Orchestrating this turnabout by introducing America to the world scene. “Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Free them from the hands of the wicked. (Psalms 82:3-4)

They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are unstable. “I said, You are gods and all of you are the children of the Most High. But you shall die like men and fall like one of the princes.” (Psalms 82:5-7)

So prophetically from the past, to the then and now, to the future. All is folly in the end. Humanity at its best fails. Yes, Americans worked hard and make a more perfect union. Mesmerizing the world community as a beacon of light and hope for them. And the United States, delivered big time. Delivering the world twice from world tyranny against all odds. Establishing the Truman model, “We will rebuild not occupy.” And set the ground work for a more perfect world community.

Today the world community is no longer mesmerized by the United States. They see the United States as being rather ordinary. And slipping, into the reservoir of the less than ordinary. That has, and is occurring because the United States has committed some  treacherous sins. Causing the nation to lose favor with God.

Only God determines life and death. Found at, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breath into his nostrils the breath of life; and he became a living being.” (Genesis 2:7); “You hide your face, they are troubled; You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.” (Psalms 104:29); “Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.” (Ecclesiastes 12:7) Abortions at will for convenience sake is a sin! Engulfing all those associated with abortions. And women, who have medically necessary abortions. This is their only source of mercy. “But showing mercy to thousands, who love Me and keep My commandments.” (Exodus 20:6) That mercy is found in Romans 10:9-10.

Like it, or not, marriage is spiritual union between a man and a woman. Immortalized for all eternity by God Himself, who said, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24). Brought into the 21st century with the same sanctity “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” (Ephesians 5:31)

Male, and female identity is the gender recorded on ones birth certificate. Today that means nothing, if one wants to switch gender identification. It’s gained such wide spread public acceptance. To the degree that state legislatures are enacting laws to accommodate them. It’s a bizarre phenomenon sweeping the nation. For many it fits into this category. “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20)

All the aforementioned sets up the following. “Arise O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all nations.” (Psalms 82:8)

then a spirit came forward

Seems some are privy to the workings within the heavens that impact we earthlings. Here’s a tale of fascination. The question. To what extent do they, if any, impact our world today? If so, can they create false perceptions within the human psyche? Thus determining winners and losers for a wide range of scenarios.

And Micaiah said, “As the LORD lives, whatsoever the LORD says to me, that I will speak.” So he came to the president; and the president said to him, Micaiah, shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall we refrain?” And he answered him, “Go and prosper, for the LORD will deliver it into the hand of the president!”

So the king said to him, “How many times shall I make you swear that you tell me nothing but the truth in the name of the LORD?” Then He said, “I saw all Israel scattered on the mountains as sheep that have no shepherd. And the LORD said, ‘These have no master. Let each return to his house in peace.’ ”

And the president of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Did I not tell you he would not prophecy good concerning me, but evil?”

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 hand and on His left.” And the LORD said, “Who will persuade Ahab to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead?” And another spoke in this manner. Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD, and said, “I will persuade him.”

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

Therefore look! The LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth these prophets of yours, and the LORD has declared a disaster against.”

Now the son of Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near and struck Micaiah on the cheek, And said, “Which way did the spirit of the LORD go from me to speak to you?” And Micaiah said, “Indeed you shall see on that day when you go into an inner chamber to Hide!”

So the king of Israel said, “Take Micaiah, and return him Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the presidents son.” And say, “Thus says the president, put this fellow in prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and water of affliction, until I come in peace.”

But Micaiah said, “If you ever return in peace, the LORD has not spoken to me.” And he said, “Take heed all you people.” See 1Kings 22-14-28.

What about ramification for our modern day world? “Take heed all you people.” Is it only for world governments, or does it include ordinary people like you and me.

omens to live by

A man, who was intending to buy an ass took one on trial and placed it along with his own asses at the manger. It turned its back on all of them save one, the laziest and greediest of the lot; it stood close beside this one and just did nothing. So the man put a halter on it, and took it back to its owner, who asked if he thought that was giving it a fair trial? “I don’t want any further trials,” he answered. “I am quite sure it is like the one it singled out as a companion.”

A man’s character is judged by that of the friends whose society he takes pleasure in. (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“Birds of a Feather.”)

A fable that allows its readers to open a window for many probable scenarios. Some personal, and others not so personal with the not so personal being the thesis for this discussion and the most scary.

To lay a foundation here is a thought or two from Jesus. “Beware of false prophets, (Islam’s Muhammad and hooligans) who come to in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Muslims are committed to change the world by any means possible for Allah and his prophet Muhammad). You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth bad fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (The ultimate end for Islam and their hooligans). But along the journey to the fire, they’ll continue to wreak global havoc. Because, so few are willing to help them find their way to the fires. By their fruits you, shall know them. Everything about Islam is in opposition to the fruits of our Judeo Christian heritage. Which turned the United States into a cultural, economic and military power house. Fast fading because the mood in America is to see Muslims for what they are not. A people, who want live and let live. Also, see Matthew 7:15-20.

The poor devils can’t help themselves because what they do, they do because they want to be something that they can’t be. It’s frustrating for Muslims because they have the desire to be a people of promise. God’s people helping people to heal Humanities sinful wounds.

It all happened because Abram had an extra marital affair with Hagar his families maid. The affair was instigated by Sarai, his wife. Sarai at age 90, was well beyond her child bearing ability. And she feared that her husband wouldn’t have a male heir to inherit his vastness of the properties he owned. And from that one night fling, a child was born. His name, Ishmael, who grew and lived in the wilderness. With a secret known only to his mother. Because she was told that her son would become a great nation. There he horned his skills as an archer. And as an adult, he would use his strength, and warrior abilities to torture the known world with unrelenting brutality. Which has been passed on from one generation to the next. And in our 21st century, it’s our nightmare.

Aesop said, “A man’s character is judged by that of his friends whose society he takes pleasure in.”

a trio that will destroy america

Though the significance of Holy week is behind us the memories are not. Indeed the mysteriousness concerning the tenets of Holy Week confronts and confuses all who want to silence the Christ message. That is good reason for you and me, His church to be jubilant! Prepared, and engaged to retaliate against all who mocked our recent observation of Holy Week. By mocking the Christ crucifier’s with people being brought to redemption through Jesus.

Zachariah captured for us this haunting memory. “They will look upon Me whom they have pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. See Zachariah 12:10.

Paul, the greatest churchman ever to have lived said this about John. Who was one the twelve disciples of Jesus. And recognized by Paul, as one of the three pillars that made team Jesus work. See Galatians 2:9. John held Pilate responsible for causing His Christ and ours to suffer unmerciful brutality. Allowing his soldiers to twist a crown made of thorns onto His head. Mocking Him by dressing Him in a purple robe. Then laughingly saying, “Hail, King of the Jews. Then in a spirit of utter contempt for Jesus they struck him with their hands.” See John 19:1-3.

The question to be answered individually because the church consists of individuals. Have you, have I, have we collectively reached the state of spiritual awareness that we indeed are grieving His murder? And those, cruel behaviors that precipitated His execution? Beyond what, we would grieve for the loss of a loved one or a firstborn child? If so, then, we should be very angry because the mockery and piercing of our Redeemer continued through Holy Week 2017 and reaches us today. As His executioners work to silence His church, in ways unimaginable by the nations founding father’s.

Is there a greater mockery of Holy Week that has turned a tragedy into week of merry making? Yes! Because, the unthinkable has occurred. With the trio that will destroy America. The ordination of homosexuals as ministerial servants of Jesus Christ by some church denominations. The nation wide legality of homosexual marriages. Nothing is more sicking to Jesus Christ than to hear a man refer to another man as his wife. And lastly, allowing people to use public bathrooms by gender identification, and not gender identification recorded on their birth certificates

Here’s an expose on the matter. “Professing to be wise, they became fool.” See Romans 1:22. And in the process, Paul warns, “That those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” See Romans 1:32b.

Paris France

A police vehicle parked in an area favored by tourist was ambushed by a Muslim. Using an automatic weapon that devil pulled the trigger killing a thirty year old police officer. In the process of fleeing the scene he shot and wounded two other policemen.

ISSI through its propaganda machine,Amag, said the attack was executed by one of its fighters. ISSI identified him as the Belgian.

In 2001, that Muslim devil shot two police officers. While in custody, and being interrogated, pure evil, grabbed another officer’s gun and shot him three times. French source said the killer was known to French security forces. Which prompted this question, why wasn’t he kept under close surveillance? Answer, we don’t have the money necessary to keep all of our security threats under tight surveillance. Ring any bells, as to your security while in the midst of hooligans called Muslims?

There is only one solution. Europe, and the United States must come to the realization that wherever there is a Muslim our well being is in serious jeopardy. These are desperate times and laws need to be changed. Giving the government the authority to exit Muslims to the Islamic hell holes of their choice. In the meantime their military fortresses called Mosques need to be eliminated by law.

Here’s a piece of prophet advice. You need to know biblical history to fully appreciate the following. “He shall be a wild man; (Ishmael the father of Islam) his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Said the Jewish seer, Moses in Genesis 16:12. Said more than fourteen centuries before Christ.

Followed by Sarah, who said to her husband Abraham. Who impregnated his families maid, and who is responsible for this global Islamic mess. “Cast out this bondwoman (Hagar mother of Ishmael) and her son; (Ishmael father of Islam) for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely Isaac.” See Genesis 21:10.

Abraham did not receive Sarah’s directive enthusiastically. So God chimed in and said, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.” See Genesis 21:11-12.

With the rejection of Ishmael as the worlds future through Arab Muslim influences. In favor of Isaac, with his Judeo-Christian lineage, as the worlds premiere governing apparatus.Those polar opposites are the reason the evils of Islam can’t be contained. Muslims are determined to replace Isaac by becoming the worlds premiere governing system. And why, the aforementioned solution must be implemented.

The Chamberlain card

Turning back the clock of time to, 30 September 1938, the day when British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, addressed the British people. Assuring his countrymen that the “Munich Agreement” which assured Adolf Hitler that Great Britain would ‘wink and nod’ at Der Fuhrer’s annexation of Czechoslovakia. Not long afterward, he annexed Austria. With Chamberlain continuing to assure the world that the “Munich Agreement” was the best chance for peace in our time. Then Der Fuhrer invaded Poland, and World War 11 was underway.

Which will prove to be the second most horrifying and blood drenching conflict in history. While still in its infancy, history will rank this current onslaught by the Muslim world. As the bloodiest, and most genocidal transgression against humanity.

Presidents Bush and Obama insisted that the United States wasn’t at war with Islam and would never be with the Muslim world. Despite their wars in sovereign Muslim countries. With threats to invade others like Iran, Syria and Yemen. While Muslims continue to build military fortresses on American soil that they refer to as mosques, simply defies logic. Especially as they continue to emerge from those mosques to reek mayhem and slaughter upon Americans.

Muslims have started a mode of intimidation against witnesses, who are testifying against Muslim defendants during court proceedings. All because their numbers are growing. Resulting in a new boldness believing that U. S. government will protect them. Because, power exists in numbers.

Both President Bush and Obama behaviors were tantamount to Prime Minister Chamberlain’s statement that the “Munich Agreement,” was the best chance for peace in there time. Just as the Prime Ministers declaration proved itself deadly for the world community. It has, and will be the continued killing effect of the Bush and Obama doctrines.

There are not many things certain in this world, but this is certain. Unless the Holy Church of Jesus Christ, wakes up, to eradicate Islam. This huge demonic evil of Islam will destroy America.

Until Trump, there was absolutely not the slightest chance that the government would ever come to grips with our Islamic danger. Because Obama sought out and employed Muslims to serve as his personal emissaries to Muslim nations. With the specific task of assuring these godless nations that America is their friend. Obama is played the Chamberlain card, as he peddled his agenda as this being our best chance for peace in our time. Which amounts to being Americas Trojan Horse, as Muslims emerge from the belly of their mosques to attack the nation. Because America had been induced into a state of comatose, by governmental olive branches of peace.

Trouble lurks wherever a Muslim is found. Ishmael, Islams founder wears that crown of disgrace recognized by two great men of God, Moses and Paul. Moses in our scriptures painted this picture. He’s as wild one, at war with everyone and everyone at war with Islam, Genesis 16:11-12. Then Paul warned us by saying get rid of this Islamic menace, Galatians 4:30.

World drama

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven. Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ has come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night has been cast down.

And they overcame him by the word the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath because he knows that he has a short time. (Texts:Revelation 12:10-12).

Get It? No! Here’s a little help. It’s about the delegation of responsibility to us to continue to labor towards the completion of God’s kingdom on this earth by his Christ. And we are told it’s done through the blood of Jesus because we have testimonies to share which is gathered from His word. Christ is the Word, note Revelation 19:13. It’s a dangerous labor requiring for some the loss of life.

When tragedy strikes understand it

Which came first, knowledge or conscience? Many think conscience which they attribute to being Gods method of etching an awareness of His truth in us. From God’s truth we develop our sense of right verses wrong and the difference between good and evil.

Others say knowledge, and that knowledge becomes our truth. Which is instilled in us through various institutions, outside of God. Institutions like our federal and state governments. Which fosters the kind of knowledge, that conforms to their concepts of knowledge which becomes societies truth. Even if it violates God’s edicts or truth. Thus, their truth becomes the conscience of society at large. Which becomes the bases for morality, or a sense of good and evil.

Which some of the former argue denies God of His majesty, as the creator. And compounds the dark side of human nature because they deny the literal installation of the God conscientiousness at birth. Anchoring their argument in Genesis 2:7, which reads, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.” Endowing this man with the freedom to choose and decide for himself. Thus from the shell of nothingness man became a conscience being. In verse 8, God placed this conscience breathing man in a place called Eden.

There the LORD God, from the ground of the earth made to grow every tree that was pleasant to the sight  and good for food, verse 9. In that same verse, we learn that the LORD God created what he called the, the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

With specific instructions, dress, or work the land to keep it productive, verse 15. And as the tress bring forth food, man was encouraged to freely eat, verse 16. Except for one tree, the tree of knowledge of good and evil of that tree eat not, because if you do you will die, verses 16-17.

And from there with such simplicity, we have enshrinement of the human condition. A condition of misery and suffering brought upon humanity from what we all want most, free will. Captured with 28 words from Genesis 2:17.

Answering Muslim horrors

Most Intriguing, is Malachi prophetically talking about a nuclear holocaust? Or maybe, the end result of global warming? We do not know, but this we know from the book of Matthew, for those of us who have confidence in God Almighty. “And except those days should be shortened, there should be no flesh saved; but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened,” Matthew 24:22.

At any rate, the prophet Malachi has the last word from the Old Testament. Providing concise observation of the state of the world. He tells of a time somewhere in the future. When the proud, and the wicked shall burn like an oven becoming like stubble. The outcome will be pretty severe. The day will come, when they will be burned up. Leaving them without root or branch, according to the Lord of Hosts, Malachi 4:1. No matter how it plays out on the world stage, it will be a time to be feared.

But for those who fear God, shall the, “Son of Righteousness,” will come with healing in His wings. And you shall go out, and grow fat like stall fed calves, verse 2. That last sentence allegorically represents God’s eternal promise to provide for his faithful.

Note the following clause, “I shall do this.” God has always expected the righteous to oppose unrighteousness. You shall tread down the wicked. They shall be ashes under the soles of your feet. On the day that I shall do this, according to the Lord of Hosts, verse 3. The movement of God’s people has been greatly hindered by those who see God as a pacifist.

Remember my servant, Moses, which I commanded him at Horeb. A law for all of Israel containing my statutes and judgments, Malachi 4:4. I will send to you Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord, Malachi 4:4-5. While meant for Israel, it is also a prophetic declaration that without explanation takes us to New Testament revelations consistent with God’s expectations for His statutes and judgments. With the life of Christ exemplifying a proactive and non-pacifist behavior, as was the behavior of believers in the early church. For a quick study read the early chapters of, “The Acts of the Church.”

He shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers. Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse, Malachi 4:6. Suggesting the cleansing power of God to unite people regardless of their disobedience. I will do this is God’s promise. Otherwise humanities disobedience would result in the destruction of the earth. Students of the Bible know that humans can not sustain God’s curses. His eternal mercy has always spared humanity with one act upon another act of mercy. Until that terrible day of the Lord. With its final curse and with out mercy.

Those six verses are about God’s disappointment over humanities failure to adhere to his statutes which have always brought judgments. Always suggesting that another opportunity will be provided, like the sending of Elijah and then Jesus. And as always, the people of the “book” with their faith rooted in that book have a commissioned duty. “Track down the wicked and make them like ashes under your feet,” Malachi 4:3. God has never been content to accept evil because evil is born from disobedience to God.

The final words of the Lord of Hosts, the Son of Righteousness is do it, end wickedness. Lest I come and inflict you with a curse, Malachi 4:6. We know the ancients failed. Pictured by the Jews of Israel, who have experienced dire consequences for their neglect of God’s demands of them. It did not end with the Jews. The failures are equally shared from that time to our very own. With our Judeo-Christian peoples experiencing the continuation of God’s curse for our disobedience. Which dates back to Genesis chapter three, where we have the beginning of disobedience to God with its consequences. That act of disobedience with it consequences plagues humanity to this day.

The commission has never changed. It is just different through out the Bible. The first book of the New Testament picks up where Malachi ended. With humanity still plagued by the curse of disobedience. But with the book of Revelation announcing, that Christ will conquer the curse of disobedience, Revelation 21:5. Because Christ is faithful and true, He will make all things new. That is the pivotal purpose of John’s instructions as he writes what he saw.

Matthew opens with this, “The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Quickly making the connection between the Jews of the Old Testament and the people to follow. Which is the bases for our Judeo-Christian relationship, and responsibility to God, and one another. We have a duty whether Jew or Christian to strengthen our relationship. We are the people directed by God. To represent His opposition to evil which has its roots in disobedience to God. Dating back to Adam and Eve through their disastrous choice.

Early in Matthew, we are told that Mary would give birth. This baby was to be called Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins, Matthew 1:21. The birth of Jesus, was God’s way of trying to spare humanity. From the destructive forces of the oven which has the power to leave humanity with neither “root or branch,” verse one of Malachi four.

For the “Son of Righteousness” will rise with healing in his wings, Malachi 4:2. Which corresponds with Matthew 1:21, it is just said in a different way.

The responsibility is the same. “Tread down the wicked, for they shall be ashes under your feet.” Malachi 4:3.

Matthew put it this way, “Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance,” Matthew 3:8.

The last book of the New Testament closes with the same connection. “I Jesus, have sent my angel to testify unto you the churches. I am the root, and off spring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star, verse 16, Revelation 22. Cementing the connection of our Judeo-Christian bond in Malachi, Matthew and Revelation. Also cementing our respective duties. Fight the wicked from Malachi 4:3 to the bearing of fruits in Matthew 3:8 and the Christ of Revelation 21:5 who will make all things new.

Failure has it consequences, with Malachi seeing the wicked or those refusing to obey God as being “burned up,” becoming “stubble,” having neither root nor branches,” verse one, Malachi 4. Whereas, Revelation has them cast in the “lake of fire” which is the “second death,” verses 14-15, Revelation 20.

Where the theme of last book of the Old Testament ends, the first and last books of the New Testament pick up the same themes. Hoping that through Jesus both Jew, and Christian will continue forge a bond through our Judeo-Christian heritage. In the end, as the struggle for global sanity and stability marches on to conclusion. Jews and Christians must stand strong together as one. Because, we are one in God. The Jews are few in number. Only populating the world with about 13 million people out of a global population of about six billion. With Christians representing about two billion. So we Christians, and Jews are greatly out numbered. Another reason for us to stick together. Because the onslaught against the Jews and Christians is just heating up. With the central culprits being Muslims wherever they are found. For all of God’s people, who can see, hear and reason from the rhetoric so available, it all should be very obvious.

How Muslim slaughter occurs

The modern day persecutors of God’s people is occurring from the Muslim world. Muslims have been emerging from Islamic states. Moving westward determined to conquer nations in their path for Islam. The attempt here is to give a scriptural meaning to the DVD titled, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West.” Which Hillary Clinton used as an excuse for the Muslims attack on our American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. Have you seen it? If not, it’s a must see. The truth angered the Muslim world which is a good thing, as regular readers know from previous discussions.

Etch this into your intellectual awareness because it is important to know. The Muslim onslaught against the West which is mostly Christian. But by association, and not by practice, if it were the reverse, Islam would not be a threat to the West. It is through Western governments that the Dragon of Revelation hopes to successfully persecute the church and her off spring as symbolized in Revelation 12:13,17. This is what is recorded, “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the male child,” verse 13. “And the Dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ,” verse 17. With those few words, readers have the equipment necessary to understand world turmoil. And why the producers of the DVD had packaged their product with such alarming urgency. They did a good job unveiling the methods and goals of Islam but neglected to ground their message from a Christian scriptural perspective. The argument here is that Muslims are the dragons tools to persecute Jesus through his tabernacle of believers.

And the drums should beat, and the trumpets should tap, “Onward Christian Soldiers marching as to War.” Once again putting an end the this Muslim menace. Only the church has the source of enlightenment to accomplish this because governments maneuver through the science of geopolitics engulfed and blinded by the subset of political correctness. Making them doomed to create one failed crisis after another.

The church has a formidable task facing it because the dragon is employing an invisible army of evil. Clothed in the armor of religiosity through the practice of Islam. This thesis will be developed from the book of Revelation 13:2, along with several other verses. Moving on we find evil cleverly depicted as being a leopard, Revelation 13:2.

Here are some striking similarities between destructive forces of Islam and the Leopard. Leopards are solitary hunters. Who characteristically hunt their prey by the cover of the night. By deploying their attack, by ambush. As the unsuspecting creature, is pounced upon from the cover of the trees. With the leopard never willing to confront its prey directly.
Such is the similarity between Muslims and the leopard. Instead of hiding in trees Muslims hide in mosques. Later to emerge to strike their foe by ambush. Muslims like the leopard prefer to be secretive about their intentions until the unsuspecting prey have no chance for escape. Recalling one high light of the DVD, reminding us that the 19 Muslims who attacked us on 9/11 trained in our country. And no doubt enjoyed comfort and encouragement within various mosques before emerging to strike the nation.

The bombers who brought mayhem to Boston’s historic annual marathon aptly fit the description of the waring leopard, who pounces upon unsuspecting people, who have no chance for escape.

The suggestion was made that the Dragon had employed an invisible army in his quest. Exemplified by those two Muslims who were able to hide themselves until death and injury took its toll. Cheered on by Muslim’s on American soil and abroad. Offering them encouragement and hoping for their success. Wanting to find ways to offer resources and protection. Believing that each attack helps to destroy Christianity and the West. And from those Islamic nations, we in the West allow those leopards to migrate into our nations. For the sole purpose of destroying us, as they emerge from the tree like cover of their mosques. Absolute madness!!!

Muslims when confronted about such goals offer abhorrence to the slaughter that their ilk inflicts. Yet they practice the same politics as ISSI. With all of their applicable tenets. Making them one of the same, or said a different way, a Muslim is a Muslim.The power of the cover of religion allows Muslims to move across the world with impunity as they raise money to fund the slaughter of the innocent from the cover of their mosques.

The enemy of God, the Dragon, is the force behind all evil. In our modern era, the force of the Dragon is working through Islam. And this Dragon condemned by God, uses the Beast, invisible to the naked eye, but not the spiritual eye, who blinds world governments to this Islamic threat. For the beast, is symbolic to world governments.

Revelation 13:2, informs us that the leopard had the feet of a bear. A leopard always seeking anonymity walks on its toes. While the bear walks flat footed, suggesting a down to earth tactics. With the combined art of being the solitary hunter attacking from the camouflage of trees. While being “down to earth” displaying a love for God, and a hatred for evil. As the leopard, secretly seeks out its next victim. There is no greater evil! And the church must rise to the occasion, and destroy this leopard/bear. Because governments pictorially as beasts are the blinded servants of the leopard/bear.

We also discover the leopard has the mouth of a lion which is symbolic of power and authority. This leopard/bear gets its power as political system. Which is its main focus, as it wars to bring all nation states to the submission of Islam. Then using its mouth likeness of the lion to legitimize itself as a religion. Which is easy to discredit because God has declared Himself as as the LORD, the King of Israel and His redeemer, saying, “I am the first, and I am the last, and beside Me there is no God,” Isaiah 44:6. Followed with this, “… but the LORD shall be unto you an everlasting light, and your God, your glory,” Isaiah 60:19. Carried over to our times where Jesus said, “… I am the light of the world …, John 8:12. Finalized in Revelation 1:8, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the LORD, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Despite the seemingly invincibility of this leopard, it suffers a critical wound to one of its heads almost to its death. But it recovers, astonishing the world, verse three. Suggesting the determination of this beast in its conquest. As well, as the influence it projects. “And they worshiped the Dragon who gave power unto the Beast; and they worshiped the Beast, saying who is like the the Beast? Who is able to make war with him,” Revelation 13:4.

As has been suggested, this a war against the the church, and her offspring. Verse four makes it clear that the leopard despite the influences of the Dragon is beatable. But this creature and its masters are resilient, and lives for another day. So can we, will we rise to the occasion, and work to deny this abominable creature more time?

Verse five is about the success of the leopard because of the power of the Dragon. As was said earlier, the church has the benefit of spiritual insight. The leopard wants Jerusalem! That is what the Middle East crisis is all about. Especially the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. With this verse being about a time on earth known as the great tribulation. A topic for another discussion.

One final note, we are engaged in earths final global warfare which is denied by the beastly governments. How long will it last-not known! How bad will it get-bad! How will it end? “… by He and who is to come, the Almighty of Revelation 1:8. Why? Because if not, “All flesh shall be destroyed, and for the elects sake (Jews and Christians) those days shall be shortened,” Matthew 24:22. But in the meantime, “Those who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ,” Revelation 12:17. The body of believers, His church, has not been excused from fighting this leopard/bear/lion like creature. Possessing a Muslim wherever a Muslim is seen. Who equally is the master the beastly governments.

Global warming and catastropic diseases

The way things are, does not mean that they have to be that way. Because two people in Eden, decided that they wanted to do things their way and not God’s way. With God  asking, “Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” Genesis 3:11b. With an affirmative answer of blame found in verses 12-13. One of the most human of all traits, the blame game.

As opposed to assuming personal responsibility which has led to individual and nation states conflicts. Their act of disobedience altered humanities destiny forever. And that attitude with its consequences has been passed onto us for centuries. With people making it a priority to  being true to themselves first and foremost. Resulting in the manifestation of a world community of nations hostile to our Creator. But only with God’s permission because it’s recorded, “Who in times past allowed all nations  to walk in their own ways,” Acts 14:16. Which has resulted in centuries of suffering and chaos.

Just because God has allowed humanity to defy Him in self defeating pursuits. Does not mean He has abandoned His creation. It just means that life on planet earth is a lot tougher than it has to be. Even for the redeemed in Christ.

The people of obedience and disobedience are in a struggle over a simple notion.The quest of the centuries from Eden, obedience to God or disobedience. In the scriptures the struggle is framed as follows, And the devil said unto Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I will give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if you will worship before me, all will be yours,” Luke 4:6-7.

Followed by this strong rebuke. “And Jesus answered, and said to him. Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, you shall worship the LORD, your God, and Him only shall you serve, verse eight.”

There we have the battle lines clearly established. With Satan, the master of this world having authority to give the glory of his conquests to the people of disobedience. With the nations battling for preeminence, with each other. But with one condition which is total submission to the prince of the power of the air. Whose very spirit is in and works through the people of disobedience through nation states, as noted in Ephesians 2:2.

For now, God is content to allow things to remain as they are, but with one exception. “Nevertheless, He did not leave Himself without a witness. In that He did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness,” Acts 14:17.

Maybe some thinking outside the box is appropriate here. Because the bounties, or riches of a people, and their nations represents God’s witness of Himself to His creation. And His goodness can as easily be withheld, as given. With His goodness being His attempts to get the attention of an errant people. To acknowledge and submit to the worship of the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve. The absolute duty of individuals and nation states, said by Jesus Himself as aforementioned. The United States and its people were the recipients of His fruitful seasons. Because by actions and deeds that is what characterized America. Unfortunately, by actions and deeds that seems to be an American experience of the past.

And there will be consequences for America and the community of nations. It’s just a matter of how far below the horizon those consequences are. Just as the sun rises above the horizon, so will be our grief. For it is recorded, “For nations shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines (from global warming) and pestilences (catastrophic diseases), and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows,” Matthew 24:7-8. “For there shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except these days should be shortened, there should be no flesh saved, Matthew 24:21-22. The message is clear. Turn from the prince of the power of the air, and become part of the elect. And worship the LORD your God, and only Him will you serve.

And to serve Him is to work to ease the chaos and mayhem plaguing the lives of so many people and the world community. Encouraging them to become a part of the elect of God’s obedient people.

Mystery of death where will it take us

Death is a huge money industry for both the secular and church community. Both have one thing in common which is to keep their bank accounts loaded. With the secular world taking advantage of people in mourning because of a death. While the church community, often uses scare tactics about death to keep their church pews full and the money coming in. Empty pews equals lost revenues. Doing so by often telling parishioners that the fires of hell is the final destiny for those outside the Christ believing community. Leaving both industries cash rich, more often than not.

In that this short series is mostly about a falsehood perpetuated by the church community. Lets take a quick look at one sales pitch used to keep people coming to church. It’s a sales pitch of what its like to be in hell. All because one failed to renounce their personal sins, and embrace Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

It’s a favorite fable found in Luke 16:19-31. The story goes as follows. Two men one rich and the poor and sick. His name was Lazarus. And, he was often found at the rich man’s gate begging to be fed, from what appears would become garbage. This poor soul was in such miserable health that the dogs would come to the gate and lick his sores.

Now in the course of time both men died. With the angels carrying Lazarus into Abraham’s bosom. Alive, or dead, we don’t know. But the rich man, upon his death was buried.

But the poor fellow, though dead, was conscious because he was able to see Lazarus with Abraham in some far away place. The story continues with him begging Abraham to send Lazarus. To dip his finger in water, and place the water upon his tongue. Complaining that he was being tormented by the flames. Hoping that even the smallest amount of water would cool his tortured body.

Now Abraham responds by  asking him to recall the good life he lived while Lazarus only experienced suffering. Telling the man that while he is being tormented. Lazarus is enjoying comfort.

Abraham proceeds by telling the man that help isn’t available. Because of a great gulf that separates them, making travel between them impossible. He begs Abraham to send someone to warn his family. But Abraham tells him that his family has Moses and the prophets to turn to for help. The rich man concludes his argument by telling Abraham they’ll respond if someone from the dead goes to them. Asserting that then his family would repent. With Abraham telling him it wouldn’t make any difference even if someone raised from among the dead was sent.

What are we to conclude from such a story? Some would argue, as they do, that there is immediate life after death. And that the behavior, and circumstances between the two men are incidental. To the reality that two conditions exist after death with one being that of comfort and the other being torment. With the point to be made is found in verse 30 where repentance determines ones existence after death. Made possible through Jesus Christ, who is the one, who returned from the dead to make all the difference how one experiences existence after death.

Such story telling makes for good fear mongering with different applications to keep the pews full and the cash register ringing. For now a thought from Jesus, for your consideration. “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.

The journey about death will continue because the dead do have a future. And rest assured, there is a hell for certain well defined characters.
