For the most part, what people receive through the various mediums from places called churches beware. Apart from a few of them, they are entrepreneurs. They sell bundles of religious concepts packaged in deception. Apparently, people are wising up because church attendance is at an all time low. When it should be at an all time high, because of the screwed up times we live in, and, as a result our growing population.

And that is of great concern to this writer, as a clergy person. Because, having had a personal experience with Christ it is a life transforming experience.

It indeed was a personal experience of mine decades ago, so that’s why I can make such a statement. However, it occurred during a time, when I was embarking on a career anything but Christian.

Someone had placed conspicuously a booklet containing the gospel of John. Later, I read a book written by the late evangelist Billy Graham. I went to my knees, confessed my sins, and accepted Jesus as my Savior. That experience of mine is contained in, Romans 10:9-10. At that time, I had absolutely no association with organized religion.

That experience was such a transformable experience that I purchased a Bible. I was determined to discover, how my life was miraculously¬† transformed. It took some time, but finally, I came across these words, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things pass away; behold, all things have become new.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17). Bingo I had my answer!

Now I had to change my career path. Recall at the time of my acceptance of Christ, I had no church affiliation. So after years of preparing for the ministry, I was ordained.

My traditional church experience was short lived. I scheduled a breakfast meeting with a bishop associate of mine. I announced that I was leaving the church. He didn’t seem surprised more like he expect it. He just replied, I got just the perfect assignment for you, which was within the inner city ghetto of Philadelphia, Pa. There I found one of my passions helping the needy. Absent the falsehoods of Christendom.

All that was shared that readers might gain trust in what I share with these discussions. Because a life with Christ is vital because someday everyone will give an account of themselves, as they stand before Him. It goes like this, “Then I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away. And there was found no place for them.

And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead, who were in them. And they were judged, each according to their works.

Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (cp. Revelation 20:11-15).

Nothing shared is trivial or for personal gain or profit. All that is written is urgent because the world we live in is dangerous with no hope of it getting better. No matter what the church or politicians assert. There will be no return to the good old days. What appears good from appearance is a charade of deception, Designed to keep people from realizing the seriousness of what lies ahead.

volatility defined

Perhaps you, like me have noticed a disturbing reality. With Journalist reporting that heads of state now see the United States on the world scene as a spectator and not a decider. A new reality that most Americans haven’t absorbed it.

For world leaders, who are now the deciders in the volatile Middle East are Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and Chinese President Xi Jinping. Erdogan will be busy attempting to re-establish the Ottman Empire. With China become the global powerhouse economically and militarily. Each President will have a specific agenda concerning their embedded spear of influence. But they all have one agenda that they share which is to destroy Israel. And that’s why the Middle East will remain the bomb waiting to be exploded into global horror.

It will explode making the United States, and its Nato Allies to the above governments a nuisance of the past. Because the United States has sacrificed its spirituality upon the alter of paganism.

And when the fires of destruction strike the European Union will eventually be dissolved into a ten state confederation. It appears that this ten state confederation will be the rebirth of the ancient Roman empire that existed during the lifetime of Christ. Like its predecessor it’ll brutalize the world community with terrorizing power. That empire will control international banking. To the point that nation states will not be able to engage in economic commerce without being in submission to its global agenda.

It’s power, and influence will be massive and impressive. Accomplishing what no other government was able to do. Negotiate a peace agreement between Israel and Palestinians.

Take a journey through the fascinating hallways of history. By engaging this Padre in such a journey. Found through the Contact Us link on my Home page. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather.

escape no understanding yes

 

From the previous two discussions hopefully it has been established that a curse from God has infected all of humanity. Including suspect lifeless substances such as stones. Who are not lifeless, according to Jesus. See Luke 19:40.

And as a whole, this is their experiences. Note: “For we know that the whole of creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.” See Romans 8:22. Yes indeed those pangs will erupt negatively, and are now getting stronger because the right forces have manifested themselves against our Creator.

Now we move to the expanded universe. To discover their mystic response to the wishes of their Creator. Who consciously, one suspects, serve their Creator, when the equilibrium of His will is disturbed by the mocking behaviors of humankind. At least that’s what environmental patterns would suggest from Luke 19:40 and Romans 8:22. Along with the following. All having a universal consciousness of astute awareness. All because the perfection of Eden, and the creation of humans became corrupted. Placing the feared curse of death upon all of Creator’s creation. None of which defy their Creator, except God’s prized creation man. In return our Creator uses those forces to keep humans check mated. And as dutifully bound, with live awareness, they are commanded as follows.

So from Psalms 148, Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all you stars of light! Praise Him, Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Verses 3-4.

Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded and they were created. He also established them forever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away. Verses 5-6.

Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all the depths. Fire and hail, snow and clouds; stormy wind, fulfilling His word. Mountains and all hills; fruitful trees and all cedars. Beasts and all cattle; creeping things and flying fowl. Verses 7-10.

Kings of the earth and all peoples; princes and all judges of the earth. Both young men and children. verses 11-12

What are they suppose to do? Let them praise the name of the LORD, for His name alone is exalted. His glory is above the earth and heaven. Verse 13.

Verses 11-13, can only be fully grasped and incorporated when the following is understood. “Insomuch then, as the children have partaken of flesh and blood. He Himself likewise shared in the same. That through death, He might destroy him, who had power of death. That is the devil.” See Hebrews 2:14.

And now the grand finale, “And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then behold the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; AND THE EARTH QUAKED AND THE ROCKS WERE SPLIT. See Matthew 27:50-51. Meaning at His death all of nature reacted with awareness, as to what had occurred. ” And the graves were opened and many bodies of the saints, who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after his resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. See Matthew 27:52-53. Those raised from the dead are thought to have been believers, who had died during the earthly ministry of Jesus.

For tomorrow, a discussion on the sunny side of the curse.
