Christmas and its associated tragedies

Determining the birth date for the baby Jesus is impossible. The Bible does not provide a date for his birth. As the life of Jesus unfolded, revealing him to be a person of astonishing talents. Defying governments, and religious officials, healing the sick, and even returning life to the dead. His murder by the Jews and Romans. Most astonishing his own return to life. Which he said was symbolic to the experience most humans would encounter. But like Himself, they would never taste a second death. Because, they too, would be resurrected to life.

For reasons unknown, his followers never marked his birth date. One would have thought, that they would have wanted to commemorate his birth for all posterity. The birth of such an unusual man.

Just as remarkable, nor did any contemporary historians of His time date His birth.

So why the twenty fifth of December? Was there something special about that day? Yes! many think that our celebration of his birth on the twenty fifth is associated with the celebration of the Roman Saturnalia. It was a Roman festival held in late December to honor the God Saturn. The festival was celebrated by merry making of large banquets and the exchange of gifts. Some think that this celebration lasted up to a week. Saturn being associated with darkness and death. The darkness of Saturn was behind the Romans now with the solstice moving towards greater light. Saturnalia was really a celebration of the unconquered sun. Darkness and death would always give way to light and life. It did not matter, if it was associated with farming or human life. Light and life prevailed!

By now, the early Christians were being vigorously persecuted by the Romans. Christians picked the twenty fifth because they could easily celebrate the birth of Christ with great festivity, and not be noticed because of Saturnalia. It was easy for Christians to blend in and celebrate the movement of the sun from darkness to light. Of course they celebrated the advent of Christ as the Son of righteousness with all of its associated meanings.

It is thought today that concept of festivity and gift giving among Christians had its roots in that Roman celebration. That is not entirely true. In those days it cost something to be a Christian. Costs like prosecutions, torture, imprisonment, and executions. Executions resulting from your head being removed from the rest of your body. Torture by being placed in the gelatin. With the executioner making sure that the neck was properly placed on the cutting block. Wondering if the cutting blade would gracefully makes its descent without jamming. If it did jam, the executioner would just host the blade back up and try again.

All because the condemned, of that time, professed Christ as Savior and Lord. Savior because they recognized their state of sin. Lord because they renounced their sin, and bore the cause of Christ.

No fashionable clothes or fancy buildings called mega churches today. Because as many as ten thousand may gather at any one time to be entertained. Fine musicals, and talented orators keep the flock faithful. Free from prosecutors and persecutions because of their belief in Christ.

It took a while, but the civil authorities finally wised up. They knew they could not defeat these committed Christians. They knew these Christians would succeed in turning their world up side down and inside out. so they legalized Christianity and today we have a wimpy church.

Rome had made it a crime to be a Christian. Christ was murdered because he violated both civil and religious law. Even in Christ’s time the civil authorities feared Jesus. Today we have a church neither feared or respected my millions. They found no reason to murder him. So they turned him over to the Jews, who did. But the guilt is equally shared by the Romans because they controlled the legal system. And the Romans, could have prevented His murder.

Today we Christians could be the controlling authority, if we wanted it bad enough. Thus preventing paganism from sweeping the country. Hell bent on secularizing America. And, once accomplished enacting laws criminalizing any public observances of the Christ of Christmas.

This what the civil authorities learned. Recognize religion by giving it a prominent place in society. Example! Internal Revenue Service allowing tax credits for money donated to churches. Bingo! Now the IRS has a tracking mechanism identifying Christians. For that to occur churches have to secure a c 501 (c) (4) status with the IRS. Bingo! Now the IRS has that same mechanism to identify every clergy person in America. With that recognition comes two results. First, the government has a mechanisms for the control of the people. Their old nemesis the Christians. Last, but not least in importance, the state has rendered Christians an useless threat to civil rule. Making the state top dog in the religious hierarchy. Step outside of government boundaries and your put out of business. With persecutions and prosecutions. Which is really a tragic history, for the church which started around the third century. With the decades turning into centuries with each new century making the church a duty bound servant to the government.

Another tragedy is banging at the door of the church! It is the Muslim community, who will never accept Christianity as having a vital role in their own world. That is what the conflict in the Middle East really boils down to. Turkey, a Muslim state not allowed membership in the Christian European Union. Added to the heap an even greater danger, ISSI. Islam is obsessed with a disease diagnosed as jihad. It is beginning to spread through out the United States. Unless this germ is destroyed, it will render all resemblances of meaningful Christianity to the death of ashes.

In order for there to be any regional peace Christian countries are going to have to abdicate all business as usual in Middle Eastern countries. Get out is the mantra there! Islamists make it impossible for Christians survived there let alone practice Christianity there. That is the goal wherever Muslims are in the majority. And they will succeed despite being told differently by the United States. The most hated government in the world by Muslims. Except for Israel. Think not! That this not the ultimate Islamic goal for Christianity in America.

This object lesson, Americans need to put people in congress, who will pass laws, to get rid of the Muslim presence in the United States. Based upon Paul’s advice to all the churches in Galatia. Paul asked? Nevertheless what does the Scriptures say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, (Ishmael), for the bondwoman and her son shall not be heir with the son of the free-woman, (Issac), ” Galatians 4:30; Genesis 21:10. Why? Because, “Now we, brethren, as Isaac are the children of promise. But he, who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the spirit, even so it is now,” Galatians 4:29.

Since we do not know the exact date for the birth of Christ this sheds a little light on how Christmas became so commercialized and neutralized. We Christians need to move away from the darkness of Saturn to the light of the Son. Failure to do so may once again see Christians celebrating the birth of Christ in the shadows of yet one, or another oppressor their government or Islam.

Missing links birth of Christ found

What a mystery, determining the birthday for the baby Jesus. Yesterday we learned why. Ended up being a little scary. More like Halloween because of its scariness. The difference though it’s real!

Maybe knowing His birthday isn’t important, because after all, it’s a human thing. Because we are talking about a person, who had no beginning and is without an ending. Which for many makes Him a very intriguing person. So we learn this about the life of Jesus as it unfolded, revealing him to be a person of astonishing courage and talent, if the latter can be labeled a talent. Defying government, religious officials, healing the sick, even returning life to the dead and His murder by the Jews and Romans. Most astonishing His own return to life. Which He said, was symbolic to the experience most of His followers would encounter. But just like Himself, they would never taste the second death. Because they too, would be resurrected to life. A life with Him, forever!

Nevertheless, hearing Him teach, and then seeing His courage and life defying accomplishments. What’s amazing, His followers never marked His birth date. One would have thought, that they would have wanted to commemorate His birth for all posterity. The birth of such an unusual man. Just as remarkable, nor did any contemporary historians date his birth.

Then what are we to make of this? Maybe this! God commemorated His birth as follows. Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod, the king, behold, came wise men from the East to Jerusalem. Saying, “Where is He born king of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East, and have come to worship Him,” Matthew 2:1-2.

But that was then, it’s different for most today. Saying it’s just a clever made up fable from some very imaginative minds? The grand hoax of history? Those wise men represent the first secularization of Jesus. With most today coming to observe Jesus as Santa through glittering lights, mistletoe and halls decked with holly. Capped with gift giving and celebrators of plentiful dinners. For most, yes, it’s a hoax. Turned into a time of fun, and relaxation. And that’s why Christmas lives on the way it does, for so many. Helped along by profiteers, who worship the season for jingles it puts in their depleted bank accounts.

Here are those found missing links for the birth of Christ. The Bible is the worlds most unusual book. Though printed on inked pages. Having had endured endless translations. It’s accuracy has been preserved. Because it’s the living breathing Word of God, as announced in Revelation 19:13. Where we find a missing link to Christmas, “And He (Jesus) was clothed with a vesture (His body) dipped in blood; and His name is called THE WORD OF GOD.” That’s quite a journey from His birth to His declaration, “Abba, meaning Father,” it’s finished, it’s the meaning of Mark 14:36. Thus creating another found link to the birth of Christ. Because from His finished experience of life. THE LIVING WORD OF GOD lives within the Christians of Christmas. As recorded in 1 Corinthians 6:19, “WHAT! Know you not 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.” Can you imagine that during the season of gift giving its God who gave and gives. With this being as magical, as it is mysterious, an occurrence bearing this phenomenon. “The Spirit, living breathing WORD of GOD bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of (Christmas) God,” Romans 8:16. Here is what makes that experience possible, yet another found link to the Christ of Christmas. Though different from Adam, the birthing process is the same, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of live and he became a living soul,” Genesis 2:7. And incidentally, death can’t occur until God withdraws his breath from his creations nostrils.

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas, if it was just about receiving, would it? No not at all! So hears the gift God wants for Christmas. We were costly said God; “Therefore, glorify Me in your body and in your spirit. Because all of you, belongs to me.” See 1 Corinthians 6:20).

And for you naysayers, who can’t accept what you’ve read. Here’s why, it was prophetically announce in Isaiah 53:1, “Who has believed our report? To whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?” That arm reaches out, “Unto you a Savior is born,” Luke 2:11. And answered through John 12:39-40, “Therefore they could not believe … He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their hearts; that they should not see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and be *converted,* and I should heal them.” You have the breath of God in you; but you will not become a living soul, until you are *converted* to the Christ of Christmas. Then you’ll find the missing link of His birth. But, the links can’t be found through reasoning. It’s personal, and thus, experiential.

Then as you mature in Christ, the aforementioned will be understood. Merry Christmas because it’s an everyday experience.

2 twinkle what it means

Twinkle twinkle little star how we wonder who you are? What follows is some of who I am. So if I sit atop your tree. Think of me forever cause I got some secrets to share.

Ever wonder, says I, atop your tree why I twinkle the holiday season. It’s all about His birthday. Well you know that no one knows His birth date. Cause it’s a family secret. If you modern day guys haven’t gotten the message, then here’s an eye opener.

In His day, as well as yours, governments are naughty. So with Mary, and the baby Jesus, in hiding for fear that the government would kill him. There had to be a way to celebrate His birth and sneak one past the government. Now there’s a novel challenge for His followers today.

And there was! You see says I, twinkling atop your tree. Late December, was the time the Roman government allowed the Romans to celebrate Saturnalia. It was a Roman festival in late December to honor the god Saturn. So they did with marvelous festivities in celebrate merry making. Complete with banquets and the exchanging of gifts. And 0! How happy Rome was. Cause governments then and today keep the focus on the dark side, away from the light. And says I twinkling atop your tree, so does ours. That you have learned from WikiLeaks a time ago.

And what you have not learned, says I, twinkling atop your tree. Is that America is God’s city on a hill, and like me a light. To be protected from the darkness. Lots of work to be done celebrators.

But more to the point, honoring the god of Saturn, the deity of darkness served us well. And maybe it’ll do the same for you. Like us, and for you, it’ll take ingenuity and bravery. An in born Jesus trait.

Cause says, I atop your tree twinkling. To be a Christ worshiper in those days was dangerous, not like our day, unless a Muslim devil gets a hold of you. Cause Christians were being vigorously prosecuted by the Romans. Like movements in your country, says I atop your tree twinkling. Whose secrets are revealed in order to make for a better America. And you know, that God frowns upon same sex marriages. And, horrors of horrors, LGBT represents pure darkness. And you know, that Jesus doesn’t need gays in His military to keep America safe. And you know that Muslims have made war against the son of promise, Isaac. Through to Jesus to us and beyond. And you know, that a safe America must be a Muslim free America, says I twinkling atop your tree.

Some think this celebration of Saturnalia lasted up to a week. Like the celebration of your Christmas for most, says I, atop your tree twinkling. But this twinkler has a message from the family of Christ, revolt! Darkness is sweeping the land and the light is in danger. Don’t let darkness stop my bright twinkle, says Jesus. Because, that’s the Christmas story.

Here’s a secret from my family twinkler’s. The winter solstice was moving towards the greater light. And says I atop your tree twinkling Those who knew that a Savior had been born. Also knew that He was the passing of the darkness of the winter solstice, as it moved towards the light. Cause Saturnalia became for us the celebration of the unconquerable SON Says I. Appreciate this, twinkling atop your tree, darkness and death will always give way to light and life.

Atop your tree I share this secret twinkling brightly. We did the 25th thing cause we were being vigorously persecuted by the Romans. And light can always use darkness to its advantage. We wanted to  mark His birth, but the cost was already great. Some of us were beaten, imprisoned, tortured and beheaded. So it was best to slip in among darkness, and thus mock the darkness, by celebrating the birth of our Christ. And another reason, why I twinkle upon your tree, is that we knew all about merry making. So party you Christ Souldier’s in honor of His birth and triumphs.

Now I know you what to know His actual birth date. So very sorry, as I said at the beginning, it’s a family secret. After all, we concluded, more important is to concentrate on the Christmas message. Which is to ruin, the darkness by exposing it to the light. Go get um, you real people of Christmas. And! Make your Savior proud.

So now you know, why I want you to remember me forever, as I, atop your tree, twinkle. Glory to God cause we have a victory message of light to celebrate. Which will, after some battles, be this one. “Among the god’s there is none like you. O Lord, neither are there any works like unto your works. All nations, whom you have made shall come and worship before You. O Lord, and shall glorify your name,” Psalms 86:8-9.

And as you take me down, and if, I couldn’t manage a twinkle, would you think me to be just a burnt out bulb? Hope not, cause twinkling His message is your job season to season. The Christ way, and darkness be dammed, in all its Saturnalia forms.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Now that the Christmas is almost here for the millions, who observe the day. Mostly from the perspective of halls decked with holly and mistletoe. Unaware or unwilling to know that Christmas is an every day celebration with the beginning of each new day.

Twinkle twinkle little star how we wonder who you are. What follows is some of who I am. So if I sit atop your tree, think of me the rest of the year.

But before going on, it should be understood that seeing the halls decked with holly. Along with flashing lights with ample mistletoe is very magical with its impact most relaxing. Merry making is part of life and has a necessary and proper place in our lives because it’s a way of recuperation. Although difficult because of work and other responsibilities people should find time for merry making every day. Its equivalent can be found by taking Holy Communion because this holy sacrament helps rejuvenate our souls. We are a trio of sacredness which includes body, soul and spirit. Merry making for the sou; can be accomplished by reading our holy scriptures. In so many ways, people fail to comprehend the everyday aspects of Christmas. Which is the design of this discussion, hoping to provide a glimpse into our Christmas celebration.

And so, here are some every day aspects about Christmas. With the providence of time, God sent the angel to visit a rather ordinary woman named Mary. Gabriel made some rather astonishing remarks for Mary. Telling her that she would conceive in her womb a baby. Then the angel told her that she was to name the baby Jesus. Then hearing from Gabriel the greatness of this person. A person who would inherit his father’s David not Joseph’s household which plays a significant and often unnoticed place in the Christmas story. Here we have the before Christmas pageant of enormous historical significance impacting us today. Joseph plays a surrogate role as provider for his family which includes his son Jesus. As he cares for Mary, and the baby Jesus, as though he was the natural father. Family and responsibility are those aspects of Christmas to be valued. Exemplified by Joseph. Which extends, beyond Christmas day and makes a circular journey. The supernatural always intersects with the natural of human nature. It is that most are unaware of this supernatural natural phenomenon. Most likely because a complete lack of interest and because this phenomenon move across our time line very slowly. And then at the end, makes a sudden burst to complete the circle of the clock. With it then being to late, to benefit from its lessons.

Now the historical, in which, Gabriel announces that Jesus would inherit David’s throne, his father. Which was a supernatural declaration, described in Matthew 1:1. And then reigning over the house of Jacob, or Israel. And his kingdom forever which shall have no end. Obviously, this kingdom is a future occurrence. And is a complex discussion, one not designed for this discussion. Other than to say that there will be no peace between Israel and the Palestinians which includes the entire Arab Muslim world. Despite the hype from the United Nations through its membership governments and the worlds media conglomerates. The only way the Arab Muslim world, and governments making up the United Nations will succeed with their mandates for peace will be by force. That is exactly the likely scenario from our Old Testament prophets. Which will be the historical event, that will trigger the events necessary to return Jesus to the throne of his father David in Israel’s Jerusalem.

But hearing all this from Gabriel, all that Mary could do was to respond to the angel saying, “How shall this be, seeing that I have known not a man.” With Gabriel responding, “With God, nothing shall be impossible!” With Mary answering, “Behold!” “The handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.”

In short summary here are a few every day aspects for observing Christmas in a practical way. How the supernatural aspects of God through his agents like Gabriel intersect with the natural of humanity. With Christmas representing our connection to the supernatural because our scriptures are supernatural. Like no other book ever written. They are the living breathing Word of God. And like Mary, we need to believe that with God nothing is impossible. That’s what Christmas means. Then Christmas means being responsible, and faithful to our families, as emulated by Joseph. Next we Christians, must offer our support to Israel for control of Judea, Samaria. In other words, ownership of all of Palestine. And never agreeing to share, or surrender Jerusalem to Muslim jurisdiction. Christmas had a beginning when Christ was born and Christmas will end when Jesus reigns from David’s thrown in Jerusalem. An event making Christmas complete every day. We must like Mary submit ourselves, and say, “… be it unto me according to your word.” And in a nut shell, so they say, the experience of Christmas before, during and after Christmas.

For those interested in reading the scriptural account for themselves. The following scriptures were used to express these thoughts. Luke 1:26,27,31,32,33,34,37 and verse 38.

holiday packaging

Amidst the rightful glitter of the season. Perhaps a slight pause within the season for some reflections of a different sort. A challenge to emulate His attributes. With a willingness, if necessary to make the sacrifice of those who went before us. And because of them, we like lost sheep found the way unto the Shepherd of our souls.

Here’s are their memories. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony. And they loved not their lives to the death.” See Revelation 12:11.

When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. See Revelation 6:9-11.

The first Christmas was about a meaningful birth and a purposeful death. And so it is with you and me, His lampstands, His church. Enabled to accomplish the unusual which is our unwillingness to be obliterated. Aided supernaturally by His assigned stars, His angels. And in their midst, and ours, stood Jesus. The difference maker in all combative rolls. See Revelation 1:4-8;12-18;20.

Christians may become casualties in war of resistance as America becomes more secular and anti-christian. Put at risk for enumerating the nations spiritual adulteries. Experiencing hate and vengefulness for their steadfast allegiance for Israel. Declaring Islam for what it is persecutors of the house of Isaac. Unwilling to cast out the evils of Islam as encouraged by the Apostle Paul. And so their many protagonist, will join the choir in persecuting Christians within the United States. With those lampstands of Jesus joining their brothers and sisters in death. See Galatians 4:28-31 and Genesis 16:11-12.

In the end some will understand the clause, “By His stripes we are healed.” Launched by Peter who wrote, “Who committed no sin, neither was deceit found in His mouth. Who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten. But committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree. That we having died to sins, might live for righteousness. By whose stripes we are healed. For we were as sheep going astray, but are returned unto the Shepherd of our souls, 1 Peter 2:22-25.

Ladies and gentlemen, the above paragraph provides some of the behavioral attributes for when the going gets tough. It’s what sets the Christ followers from the Christ haters.

With the above in mind we come to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen of God, and precious, we also, as living stones, are being built up as spiritual houses, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ. See 1 Peter 2:4-5.

Movements have been in our midst for some time committed to destroying the Christ message of Christmas. They are becoming more aggressive and determined to erase Christ as the reason for Christmas. We lampstands are as living stones seen as spiritual houses. Declared to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. So that they fail because it’s the work of Christian women and men to make them fail but at a cost.

The Christmas questions, are we, as men and women up to our God responsibilities? As a holy priesthood, (army) chosen by God to offer up spiritual sacrifices? If necessary, which would be acceptable to God through Jesus?

Prophetic prayer 4 Christmas women at work

A very different Christmas Carol. With a discussion about woman on the front lines of Christmas and beyond. Hannah, who stood up in a man’s world foreseeing, and announcing God’s answer to a world troubled mostly by men. Along with a stern warning for doing the male thing, ignoring God.

But Hannah first prayed sharing her vision for a distant future generations, like ours. And said, “My heart rejoices in the LORD; my horn (authority) is exalted in the LORD. (Meaning Hannah was a source of authority in her community. Whose authority would reach us today). I smile at my enemies because I rejoice in Your salvation. (The Christ child). No one is holy like the LORD, for there is none beside You. Nor is there any rock like our God. Talk no more so very proudly; let no arrogance come from your mouth. (Two superbly male traits pride and arrogance resulting in all kinds of trouble). For the LORD is a God of knowledge; and by Him actions are weighed. (And, America hurts! In that most governments, at all levels are made up of mostly men. It’s a reasonable assumption that its the male presences that is the problem. More inclined to do it their way. Even if it goes against God’s way. And this seems to be so individually, as it relates to family and careers. Hannah with her Christmas message warns against it with the following). The bows of mighty men are broken, and those that stumble are girded with strength.” (O! How this has played, so many times, so many different ways). See 1 Samuel 2:1-4. Could the mighty of Christmas 2018 be the United States? And could the stumbler’s girded with strength be ISSI

Once again God chose a woman in order to get done what had to be done. At the right time God sent Gabriel to find a virgin whose name was Mary. Shocking Mary, the angel came and said unto her, “Hail you, who are highly favored, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women. And the angel said unto her, fear not, Mary; for you have found favor with God. (What a superlative declaration, you have found favor with God). And behold! You shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give to him the throne of his father, David. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever (with some Americans being part of that kingdom because of his grandson Manasseh. A topic this padre has written considerably about with scriptural support. Know your scriptures, know your world); and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” See Luke 1:26-33.

It was a Mary that God used to change the course of the world dynamics.. And all who have followed have served in Mary’s destiny. Because she found favor with God, and was declared to be favored among women, forever. These few passages reveal God’s faith in the leadership of women, despite Eve making a different choice. Mary corrected Eve’s mistake in Eden. Also showing God’s supernatural intervention into our history, always designed to save us from ourselves. And to a large extent, supernatural forces are at work to prevent Jesus from ruling from David’s throne in Jerusalem. By the same power broker that tricked Eve. So our Christmas Carol has a past which brought us to the present era. And it’s being challenged today, and into the unknown future.

Mary absorbing all this from Gabriel, finally said, “How shall this be, seeing that I know no man? And the angel answered, and said unto her. The Holy Spirit shall come unto you, and the power of the Highest shall over shadow you. Therefore, that which shall be born of you shall be called the Son of God. (And Mary shares a Christmas wish to be emulated). ‘Lord be it unto me according to thy word,'” Luke 1:34-38.

Like Hannah, Mary declared, “My soul magnifies the Lord. And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations shall me blessed. For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. And His mercy is on those  that fear Him from generation to generation. He has shown strength, with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imaginations of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted them of lowly degree.” See Luke 1:46-53.

Perhaps Mary’s plea is for women to join her, as change makers. With some going down in history as visionary crusaders). Because God has a way of, “Filling the hungry with good things; and the rich He sends away empty.” See Luke 1:53.

Christmas wish exit Trump

At this season, His wish, though simple could be costly. So simple that it’s wrapped in two words. Follow me, as recorded in Matthew 4:19. And those, who responded to that first call set off a revolution that changed the world. The early change was magnificent. It was meant to be a united catholic church with catholic meaning universal. But unfortunately becoming, the Roman Catholic Church, with its pontiffs becoming the brutal enemy of Jesus, who said, “Upon this rock I will build My church.”

But as time progressed this new catholic movement became very oppressive. Becoming indistinguishable from the evils it sought to destroy. Then a reformation took place and protestantism was born. It hasn’t fared much better becoming, so splintered with isms, so numerous that they out number the stars in God’s sky. And in some incidences their evils are indistinguishable, from the evils they were born to eradicate. No doubt the state of the church today gives Jesus little cause for merry making celebrations. But that could change, if God in His mercy gave us another chance. A chance to bear fruits worthy of our repentance.

So, if Jesus Christ had a street address today in your town U.S.A. Would He not expect His church to accept His wish, “Follow me?” And then, if His followers live their lives in accordance with the New Testament account of His life. Another reformation would be born. After all His church through His leadership has done it more than once. Then His church, like Jesus Himself, would be no friend of the government or the splintered religious hierarchy down the street and around the corner from where you live.

Two thousand years ago the religious authorities found Christ to be a threat to their doctrines. The governmental authorities found Him to be a revolutionary. Therefore, a threat to governmental stability which could result in the overthrow of their government. By today’s rhetorical noise, that would have earned Him and His followers the terrorist label. The solution then was to kill Him, as it would most likely be today. Extinguish His followers by taking away their tax exempt status. What would the modern church do, if it had to rough it in the wild?

Surely the Christ of Bethlehem would want His church to be be a menace to the government directing its change. Because the trump government is a machine for incompetence, and economic injustice. After all, how can they explain, why a nation centuries old has an immigration problem? Answer! Because corporate conglomerates lured immigrants into low paying and oppressive working conditions. And the government looked the other way. Giving life to corporate greed at the expense of American citizens. And now the government wants to punish the American people because they created the so called fiscal cliff. Which really is the fiscal cliff of governmental incompetency. How else can a debt approaching 22 trillion dollars be explained?

The solution is for, we the people, in and through Jesus, must get angry at three corrupt forces in America. Which are the politicians, apostate Christianity and greedy oppressive corporate conglomerates by throwing them out of their respective concrete castles. Labeling them for what they are, the great fornicators causing many to stumble. Suddenly, another angle appeared, saying, “Babylon is fallen that great city because she has made all the nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” See Revelation 14:8.

Today the American government, apostate Christianity and corporate conglomerates speak as one voice. They are on the verge of being the perfect replica of that great city whose intoxicating wine will destroy many more. The United States is modern day Babylon! There is no hope for a reprieve unless people accept the call of Christ, “Follow Me,” by remaking their world. It could become a remarkable achievement for the honor and glory of Jesus Christ.

Two thousand years later millions call themselves Christians. Many faithfully exercise the symbolism of the Christ opposition to the religious, governmental authorities and corporate thugs. This is done through ritualistic remembrances as they travel through the church calendar for the year. It should be done as a reminder of the Christ purpose and mission. It must be more than just ritualistic remembrances. Somehow many devout Christians, seem to have fallen asleep. They must be awakened and called into service to alter the path of this nation. There is a great need to silence the power of apostate evangelical fundamental Protestantism. With a focus upon Pentecostalism and its alignment with the Trump government. It’s thought that they propelled clown Trump into the people’s house.

Our national constitution calls for a separation of church and state. There intent was to keep the government out of the church. Not the church out of the government. Perhaps the founders knew that the two could not co-exist as one entity. Because one would corrupt the other, rendering both useless and ineffective. The church and the state have nothing in common. The state is all about control of the population for its own purposes. Which has led to that cliff hanger hoping to find a way to continue. Which is what political discussions are really about. Whenever Trump, and colleagues confer over state issues. And Trump decides, that they are not Trump enough he shakes up his administration. Different equation same answer!

We are suppose to have three co-equal branches of government. That was the beauty of our constitution. The governments co-equal partners who got their authority from the people. That coexistence is gone, and has been replaced by the authority of one, Donald Trump. We the people better wake up and reclaim our responsibility. Or we’ll experience the cloning of Russian president Putin via Donald Trump.

Christians must rebuke the dictatorial aspirations of Donald Trump. Christians  get their authority through the example of Jesus Christ. A reading of the gospels clearly portrays Christ, as the person, who challenged the governmental authorities of His day. We Christians should follow his example. Even if it means being labeled a terrorist. For Christ said, Those who do not take upon themselves the cause of the cross. By following me, are not worthy of me, Matthew 10:38.

For the most part, Christians aren’t recognizable as an institution that mirrors the Christ example. If America is going to be spared, from even greater hardships, just around the corner. Christians must become revitalized and respond to His command, “Follow Me!”

Christmas stories 2 untold

Two women centuries apart had their own Christmas stories to tell the world community. Christmas can’t be understood apart from Jewish history. Because Jews, and Christians fall under the same umbrella of God’s ordinances. Because we have it written, “And if you be Christ’s, then are you Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise,” Galatians 3:29. Resulting in the abundance of God’s bounties or wrath. Depending upon individual personal choices or national collective choices as nations.

For Israelis this abundance of bounties or wrath has been a roller coaster ride between the two. Christians have not fared much better over the centuries. Except for two extra ordinary nations, Great Britain and the United States. But things are changing, as both nations are slipping more and more towards God’s wrath. And not by default, but by deliberate choice.

Our first woman shared this Christmas story with the world with these words. “And Hannah prayed,” and said, ‘my heart rejoices in the LORD, my horn (strength) is exalted in the LORD; my mouth is enlarged over my enemies, because I rejoice in your salvation,”‘ 1 Samuel 2:1. Here Hannah gave the world her prophetic awareness of the birth of our LORD Jesus Christ. She goes on in verse two saying, “There is none holy like the LORD; for there is none beside you, neither is there any rock like our God.” Followed by this warning, … “the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed, verse 3.

Hannah’s prophetic Christmas story hails these bounties of gifts upon God’s faithful. “The bows of mighty men are broken, and they that stumble are girded with strength,” verse 4. She went on to counsel, “The LORD makes poor and the LORD makes rich; He brings low and lifts up,” verse seven.

“He raises up the poor from the dust. And lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to sit them among princes. And to make them inherit the throne of glory; for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, and He has set the world upon them,” verse eight.

It is not for anyone to judge Israel, as to whether they are reaping God’s bounties or His wrath. This though can be said, Israel as a nation has rejected the everlasting gospel, as dispatched by the angel of Revelation 14:6. Which is not a good omen for any individual or nation. So maybe for now, God will turn the tables upon Israel and give victory to her Arab/Muslim enemies that surround her.

It’s amazing how this little Israeli state, smaller than California, has been able to fend off her avowed enemies. Who have boldly announced their determined purpose to eradicate Israel from the face of the earth. And they have backed their talk with action. But have failed and failed and failed because of Hannah’s Christmas prophecy.

Succeed yet they might, and if you haven’t noticed, notice, because the United States is moving away from Israel towards support of her avowed enemies. A move the United States will regret. Because ultimately this will occur, “He will keep the feet of His saints and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall He thunder upon them. The LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and He shall give strength unto His king (Jesus) and exalt the horn (authority) of His anointed,” verses 9-10.

In those few verses, we have the Christmas story, “I rejoice in your salvation,” Hannah, 10th century B.C. The travail of earthly struggles and there climatic end.

The other woman of our Christmas pageantry, Mary, pretty much echo’s the same prophetic story as Hannah. And Mary said, “My soul does magnify the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the low estate of His handmaiden; for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For He has done to me great things; and holy is His name. And His mercy is upon them that fear Him from generation to generation,” Luke 1:46-50.

Note verses 51-52, as related to world affairs. “He has shown strength with His arm and has scattered the proud in the indignation of their hearts. He has put the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. Historians are amazed, as the nations greatest generation, World War Two veterans over came some seemingly insurmountable odds to turn the tide of defeat into victory. Perhaps with the Normandy invasion being the greatest from, 06 June 1944-01 September 1944. Because from the cold waters, as troops valiantly climbed treacherous mountains, as open targets from above. To send the Germans into permanent retreat. And in the Pacific the battle for Iwo Jima from, 19 February 1945-26 March 1945. American victories occurred because of Luke 1:51-52, “He has shown strength with His arms; He has scattered the proud with in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.”

But in the end, for a spell, America’s enemies might be exalted. Mary capsules it this way, “He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty,” verse 53. America is not the humble Christ fearing and Christ honoring nation of World War Two. And no doubt she’ll pay her dues for her godless treachery. Maybe from one of her own, Donald Trump, and Russian associate, Vladimir Putin.

Our Christmas pageantry is really about verses 54-55, “He has helped His servant, Israel, in remembrance of His mercy. As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed forever.” If one is Christ, as taught in, Galatians 3:29, then you are of Abraham’s seed and of the family of Israel. On occasions, when Christmas becomes more secular than spiritual God’s wrath becomes necessary in order to appreciate His fruitful bounties

The best way to determine individual or a nations barometer as to whether to expect to see the abundance of His bounties or the fury of His wrath. Is to observe how Christmas is celebrated. Does one observe the Christmas spirit of Hannah and Mary or the opposite.

strangeness on the battlefield

When a person loses the prestige that they once had. Then in their misfortune they become the play things of even cowards.

A lion worn out with age and feebleness lay breathing his last breath. First came a boar, and with a blow from its tusks took revenge on him for an old injury.

Then a bull lowered its horns and gorged its enemies body.

An ass seeing those attacks delivered with impunity kicking blows to the lions forehead with its heals.

The Lion seeing on the verge of dying said, “It’s hard enough to face death from those brave animals about to triumph over me. But as for you, you shameful blot of a creature. To be at your mercy as I die is like dying twice over.” Source: Penguin Classics – Fables of Aesop – The Mighty Fallen

“What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much long suffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on vessels of mercy which he had prepared beforehand for glory.” See Romans 9:22-23.

“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.” See Romans 4:7-8.

away trump goes

A prophetic truth for all times. And during, the centuries it has traveled many roads. Finally, placing trump in the peoples house. But He who declared the end from from the beginning had this to say. ‘Then behold, at eventide, trouble! And before the morning, he is no more. That is the portion of those who plunder us, and the lot of those who rob us.” See Isaiah 17:14; 46:9-10.

What do we know about corporate America? They are specialist at manipulation at getting people to do what they ordinarily wouldn’t do. There are many avenues into that concept. But for this discussion, the devious ability of donald trump is a perfect example. The donald instinctively knew that the presidency couldn’t become be his; unless, he dipped into the corporate bag of manipulation. And, he did just that. By appealing mainly to evangelical fundamentalism, and at the helm of that group Pentecostalism. Who within themselves are equals with corporate America in the schemes of deceitfulness. With this scenario trump committed himself to their wish list. And they became his base, along with those outside of Christendom but who shared their ideologies.

How the prophecy of Isaiah plays out will be most interesting.

If you do the other thing, and the same over again it is like doing it to me. And they asked him, when did we do the other thing and the same over again? And He replied, “When you did something good, helpful and needed without regard for your own self interest.” See Matthew 25:35-36.

It’s the Jesus account. The only authoritative account that matters. And at the appropriate time, and recorded for posterity to enshrine for a better society. “Assuredly, I say to you, insomuch, as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to me.” See Matthew 25:40.

an empire like no other

Wherever Islamic tragedy strikes, as it does with its avenues of barbarianism. People ask, what went wrong? What went wrong occurred over a family dispute caused by the Jewish patriarch, Abram and his wife Sarai.

Some might think such a statement is anti-Semitic. Others might cheer such a statement. It’s well known that anti-Semitism is on the rise. But facts are facts, and truth is truth, so the journey goes forward.

By divine enlightenment, Abram was instructed, “Lift your eyes now and look to the North, South, East and South. For all the land which you see, I will give to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants, as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be counted. Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you. See Genesis 13:14-17.

How vast was Abram’s inheritance? Huge! It included all the lands of old known as Canaan. Repersenting the entire Midldle East and beyond. See Genesis chapter ten; Numbers 34:2-12; Ezekiel 47:13-20; Ezekiel 48:1-7 and 23-29. As history progressed Abram’s empire expanded to include Great Britain and her Commonwealth of Nations. Including the United States. See Genesis chapter 48. Ephraim the grandson of Abram was destined to father Britain and her huge family of nations. While his older brother Manasseh, whose lineage would establish the United States. See Daniel 7:4, the winged lion with eagle wings. Plucked off, crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Made to stand on two feet like a man having a man’s heart.

The aging Jewish patriarch Abraham became alarmed that the vast empire he owned would disappear for lack of a male heir. Being exacerbated from recalling an earlier conversation with his benefactor. Who said, “Get out of your country, from your family, and from your father’s house. To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you, and make your name great. And you, shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and curse those, who curse you. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” See Genesis 12:1-3.

Circumstances take there twist and turns sometimes unexpectedly. Abram found himself at odds with the King of Sodom. See Genesis 14:21-23. But when you have a powerful benefactor, that becomes a non-issue. Because Abram had a supernatural encounter which manifested itself as vision. And this manifestation said, “Do not be afraid Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”

But his lack of an heir, gave Abram constant anxiety. By saying, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless. And the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus. Upping the ante, Abram barked, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!”

Perhaps angrily came the response. “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir. Then He brought Abram outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” Continuing perhaps with less anger, “So shall your descendants be!”

In the end forgiveness was granted. For it’s recorded, “And he believed the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.” See Genesis 15:1-6.

This is important stuff because with the previous discussion facts showed how the world got so screwed up. Put together you’ll understand world trauma exercised upon us by Muslims. They will not be defeated in their conquest for global dominance. The best that can be done is to lessen the carnage. Done by closing Mosques and exiting Muslim to the hell holes of their ancestors. From a biblical perspective their is no such creature as Muslim with citizenship in America. Only devils, and we don’t need them either. Or in any other place with a history of Judeo-Christian culture and values.

in a nut shell

Abram is becoming desperate because he, and his wife aren’t getting any younger. The probability of Sarai giving birth to a male child is diminishing with every turn of the calender to a new day.

Sarai, pondering the situation comes up with sure proof scheme with a fifty percent chance for success. And if it fails, well there’s always another tomorrow. So she goes to her husband and says to him. Since God has restrained me from bearing children; why don’t you sleep with my maid Hagar. Perhaps through her, I’ll be able to have children. So Sarai decided to reestablish God’s law of matrimony. Then Sarai, Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid, the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband to be his wife. After Abram had dwelt in the land of Canaan, for ten years.

Abram didn’t need any more encouragement. He slept with Hagar and she conceived. When Sarai became aware of Hagar’s pregnancy, she experienced an attitude of contempt erupting from Hagar..

Sarai became enraged, and attacked Abram, as though this miss was completely his fault. Saying, “My wrong be upon you! I gave my maid into your embrace; and when she saw that she had conceived, I became despised in her eyes. The LORD judge between you and me!”

So Abram said to Sarai, “Indeed your maid is in your hand; do to her as you please.” And when Sarai dealt harshly with her, she fled form her presences. See Genesis 16:1-6.

World history in a nutshell. With Hagar, giving birth to Ishmael, the father of Islam. With Ishmael being declared a psychopath. See Genesis 16:12. With his presence among humanity experiencing his madness from the ancient of times to the modern of times.

Behaviors have consequences. God calls it sin, so properly defined sin has consequences. Sarai had no legal authority to pronounce Hagar and Abram, as husband and wife. See Genesis 16:3.

Marriage had it’s beginning, when Adam by divine unction, meaning of God and not of Adam. With God allowing Adam to articulated the law of marriage on His behalf. It goes like this, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” See Genesis 2:23. So as to reiterate, Sarai had no legal authority to give Abram a second wife. Because, Abram and Sarai, had literally become the embodiment of each other, one flesh.

Abram by impregnating Hagar became as guilty as his wife. By disrespecting the law of oneness between one man and one woman.

And that folks answers the question as to how things have gotten so bad. Abram and Sarai sinned against God. And their penalty is ours because we are experiencing the wrath of Islam through the lineage of Ishmael. Because, he has been denied all the birth rights of his father Abram. Therefore Muslims see the promises God made to Abram and his descendants as belonging to the rightful heir. Which happens to be Abram’s firstborn son, Ishmael. Review yesterdays discussion for more details.

when least expected it happens

Remember the days of old. For I am God and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like me. Declaring the end from the beginning. And from ancient times, things not yet come. Saying, “My counsel shall stand. I will do all my pleasures.” See Isaiah 46:9-10.

Laughable to most, but God is the originator of the unsuspected and unbelievable. Especially His counsel and pleasures. The Bible is a complex book. Its many books are not presented in a chronological order. And their authors span centuries of time. Complicating matters God’s counsel changes because His pleasures are not uniform from century to century by purposeful design. Presented from one economy to another as revealed mysteries. So much confusion abounds!

times are a mess

Just imagine, there stood histories protagonist perhaps in deep thought because of the solitude the sea shore offers. When surprisingly, the calm waves of the seas become turbulent with a deafening roaring sound. And moving towards him was a creature of monstrous size.

That is what happened to John, as he stood on the sand of that sea shore. The creature he saw had seven heads, ten horns with one crown for each horn. Upon each of the seven heads was the name of blasphemy. See Revelation 13:1, with blasphemy being defined in Revelation 13:6, as acts of insolence, defiance with bitter hatred for his Creator and everything human and non-human associated with Him. Giving meaning to the expression, “hell on earth.” Which will be humanities incremental worsening experience, as history ages. Acerbated by non-human entities such polluted air, drinking water and food shortages. Helped by rising sea levels from global warming.

Pious religionist will persuade most to accept a false belief in a supernatural being more satanic then divine. And the faithful in Christ will be abused, persecuted, imprisoned and murdered. Destructive regional wars will dominate the globe. Like the Israeli Palestinian conflict and the U.S. seventeen year quagmire in Afghanistan. With the Syrian conflict being picturesque for future conflicts. In Syria numerous opposing enemies are there fighting for something that can’t happen. Wars of greater magnitude will emerge between powerful kingdoms like war between the United States and China as possible examples. With North Korea being the unsuspected spoiler of her neighboring and global foes aspirations.

Unsuspecting elements like earthquakes and bizarre weather patterns will serve the interest of the times of this blasphemous emerging creature. Medical science will be tested to its limits, as new crippling diseases inflict their deadly sting.

A power of unprecedented evil is the culprit behind this looming fiasco. We make that discovery because it was given to us centuries ago and is recorded for us today. “Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. See Revelation 13:2.

This beast will contaminate the world community with picturesque characteristics of the leopard, bear and lion.

reading signs of the times

Yesterday discussion presented a seven headed beast. Each head had a word written on it which read blasphemy. It also had ten horns and each horn had a crown. Perhaps the ten horns represent a ten nation federation of immeasurable strength. With the crowns being picturesque of royalty of some sort. Suggesting acceptance by the global community. Maybe out of desperation or confusion. In that it is characterized as a beast and determined to be a force of unprecedented evil. Meaning the omens for the future will be very troublesome for the global community.

People who are observers of global trends are aware that there are forces underway to captivate, redirect and manage human consciousness. By calling evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Tagged as, “Woe to them” Take a glance at Isaiah 5:20.

During the previous discussion time was taken to define the written word blasphemy which appears ten times. Signaling a goal of a human being characterized as a beast. The only conclusion available is to be aware of a movement to eradicate everything anchored Christendoms influence.

president trumps dark side

Some one said, “To be forearmed is to be forewarned. With trumpism running rampant throughout the American government and the nation. We’ll need all the forewarning available.

Is, donald trump, hell bent on taking the nation on a suicide mission? Who is he? Short answer a dangerous delusional tyrant. Or is trump an answer to biblical prophecy, if so, then America, and the world community is being prepared for a real shocker.

“I stood on the sea, and I saw a best rising up out of the sea. Having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns were ten crowns and on his heads a blasphemous name.” See Revelation 13:1.

Exegesis: The sea could be some sort of a grotesque representation of a human being, who emerges from among the people. Like donald trump. This picturesque wonder having seven heads, ten horns and ten crowns. Is suggestive of brilliance, strength and authority. And he is fearless which is characterized with ten blasphemous names. All of which is adequately behaviorally descriptive of donald trump.

fate of donald trump

Indeed! The fate of donald trump and his supporters. The donald is the least presidential of all who have occupied the Peoples House in the history of the republic. As for his followers, they are paving the road for their own destruction. Because the donald is using them for his own gains. The donald way is one, whereby, when he has bled them to personal uselessness they are ruthlessly discarded. Flamed by the donald’s cruel and insulting jargon.

Woe to the multitude of many people, who make a noise like the roar of many seas. A force of many, who will rush in support like the rushing of many waters; but God will rebuke them and they will flee away, to be chased like the chaff of mountains before the wind, like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. Then behold, at eventide! Before the morning they are no more. That is the portion of those who plunder us, and the lot of those who rob us.

America needs a revolt like we are seeing in France!

In America hundreds of thousands of new jobs don’t matter. When the lost jobs they are replacing offer wages less the cost of living. Making the work force worse off, then before, and the wealthy richer then before. Resulting in greater, and greater inequality between the have not’s and the haves.  The donald way is wealth for the few and poverty for the many.

gift of all gifts

Our blood stream, the river of life is built in the body. The foods we eat, the liquids we drink and the air we breath. From our blood stream the bodies cells are made nourished and maintained.

Every eleven months we have a new set of billions of miraculous body cells.

Every two years we have an entirely new set of bones and hard tissues every ninety days.

“I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderful made. Marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well,” See Psalms 139:14.

With gratitude learn pray the scriptures. And you might experience His answers to what troubles you. This Padre has studied the scriptures and has made many discoveries. God expects us worship Him and worship expresses love. The scriptures teach that we were created in His image. See Genesis 1:26. What do we crave? Love. Therefore, it’s reasonable that our Creator has the same cravings. In prayer tell God the following. “How precious also are Your thoughts to me. O God! How great is the sum of of them If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with you. See Psalms 139:17-18.

a mistake called christmas

“You have seen what I did to the Egyptians. And how, I bore you on eagles wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant. Then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people. For, all the earth is mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.” See Exodus 19:4-6.

You have read one of the most important historical prophecies ever recorded. It’s the bases for understanding the intentions and purposes of God Almighty. For now, note that the Jews were to be His special treasure above all people. And that the Jews were to be to God a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. A kingdom of priests needs a chief priest who would be Jesus. And Jesus with His priestly associates would function from what God called a holy nation,

The first advent called Christmas was never meant to be. Jesus born of a virgin came to fulfill the aforementioned. The Jews wanted nothing to do with Jesus whom they accused of being a blasphemer. And cooperated with the Romans in His cruel and torturous murder.

Want 2 know more? Engage this Padre as your quest. From a private setting perhaps your home or a setting like a library. Or from the pulpit of your church because the congregants are truth seekers. In conclusion they’ll see Christmas through a different lens. Found through the contact us link.
