A lion, and a donkey, and a fox formed a partnership and went out hunting. When they had taken sufficient food quality of food. The lion told the donkey to divide the food the food. The donkey divided it out in three equal parts, and bade the lion to choose one. Quickly, the lion was upon the donkey and devoured him.

Then he told the fox to divide it. The fox collected nearly all of it into one pile. Leaving a few trifles for himself. He told the lion to make his choice. The lion asked the fox, who taught you to divide things that way? “What happened to the donkey,” he answered.

The lion being huge and furious is as cunning as any creature on earth. If his prey could tell their stories, no doubt they would say, “He’s no animals fool.” I’ll be darn, that’s exactly the picturesque portrait Aesop painted. Leave it to a Greek philosopher to get it right. Especially when his fable has eons of applications which reached Christchurch, New Zealand.

For this discussion, the well meaning people of Christchurch. Led by Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, with women wearing Muslim head scarfs met to be a symbolic gesture of oneness with the nations Muslim community. Mistake!

The lion in this fable must be seen as the adherents of Islam. With the donkey and fox being people, who fail to see the Islamic lion as people who are no ones fool. Islam in the West is famous for making partnerships with as many donkeys and fox’s as possible. Waiting for the opportune time to devour such donkeys as possible. Until all of New Zealand surrenders to the superiority of Islam.

It’s an Islamic doctrine which sees non-Muslims as Dhimmi or second class citizens. Who must be subservient to Islamic hierarchy, as well as ordinary people within New Zealand. Or experience the horror of Aesop’s donkey. To survive they experience life like Aesop’s fox. Because Muslims see non-Muslims as being less than human.

Available to discuss Islam, as the worlds foremost animalistic predator from ancient times till now and beyond. Islam is more cunning and furious than Nazism. Not now in the West until their lion like influence in various legislatures is felt. Made so, as the Muslim population becomes more dominant.

As for the gunman, who slaughtered fifty people, in Christchurch, and seriously wounded many more. Two words are fitting for him, Pure Evil! People like him are a community danger. Not in any way to be minimized. But they are miniscule, as a threat compared with Islam.

 

pelosi got it right,

as she spoke for millions of Americans. Saying, “Show us the report, and we can draw our own conclusions. We don’t need you interpreting for us. It was condescending. it was arrogant, and it wasn’t the right thing to do.”

As most know by now Mueller’s report produced more than 300 pages of data. Barr, and Rosenstein condensed, and sanitized those pages into a four page summary. That they said. exonerated trump of all wrong doing.

People wanting the truth may find it difficult to trust Barr. After all Barr wrote a letter to the White House Justice Department describing the investigation as being based upon fatally misconceived theories. Which accomplished his nomination by trump, and then his confirmation as attorney general. And house, and senate republicans, used that notion by Barr in an attempt to discredit Mueller’s investigation constantly.

Barr, and Rosenstein know that loyalty to trump is preeminent, for not being labeled by him in the most derogatory belittling language. Then if intimidation fails, then bombastic insulting dismissal occurs.

Therefore, it’s crucial that Mueller’s report be made public through, as many ways, as is possible. Including mailings to all registered voters. Paying for it, no problem! All trump has to do is divert the money from his unnecessary wall.

One thing that can be said about trump is that he’s morally unprincipled. More so than any other person to sit in the oval office.

Don’t understand, why so many think climate change is leftest democratic hoax. As food prices soar because farmers can’t plant their crops because of flooded fields year after year. With coastal communities building walls to hold back rising water levels. Raising road heights, as much, as two feet to hinder flooding. Strengthening building codes in anticipation of stronger storms.  Wonder what it’ll take before realization occurs that its not a hoax? Maybe when, a deadly pestilence strikes family and friends.

Get bitten, get sick because climate change is a developing another menace. That’ll bring mosquito borne diseases once limited to the tropics to your city.

PBS Newshour reports that Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus are two species of mosquitoes known to carry and transmit potentially deadly viruses like yellow fever and Zika. Those mosquitoes become more deadly because they bite and leap to bite another victim.

What do those mosquitoes need to move you city and thrive. Nothing more than rising temperatures which climatologist keep telling us is and has been occurring.

Who are those naysayers, who deny the reality of climate change? Mostly conservative protestant evangelical religionist, racist ideologies and conservative republicans. Who produced the nations most deadly mosquito in American history, donald j trump, to be their pestilence for the ruination of America.

So now, we have to combat not only devastating weather patterns, deadly insects and a collection of looney tunes, who insist its all a conspiracy.

The Israeli/Palestinian peace talks going nowhere. Because the Palestinian leadership refuses to recognize the right of the Jewish state to exist. And to have Jerusalem, as its capital. The city of King David and whose lineage gave the world Jesus Christ, though not recognized by the Jewish state. And the city where Jesus will establish his earthly kingdom, though not recognized by the Jewish state, yet. But the Jewish state will recognize both, sometime in the future.

And that is the Muslim stance for every person, and nation. From the useless deserts of the Middle East, Africa and Eurasia. To the once productive vineyards of a place called America.

The lion besides being huge and furious is as cunning as any creature on earth. If his prey could tell their stories, no doubt they would say, he’s no animals fool. I’ll be darn, that’s exactly the picturesque portrait Aesop painted. Then leave it to a Greek philosopher to get it right.

If the dead from 9/11 could tell us any stories, no doubt they would warn us that Muslims are no man’s fool. Their animalism behaviors parallels that of the lion. Muslims keep telling us that they want to form partnerships of peaceful coexistence. But those, who buy that Muslim propaganda end up like the donkey. While the fox seemed to have a workable solution which was to concede his equal portion to the lion. Which is acceptable to Muslims because it makes them the dominant power in any state. Then they can destroy at will ones few trifles.

This Islamic problem is not new by any means. It dates back centuries where we find the apostle Paul looking at his Islamic problem as follows. “Nevertheless, what says the scriptures? Cast out the bondwoman (Hagar mother of Islam) and her son; (Ismael founder of Islam) for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son (Isaac of the lineage of Abraham, to King David, to Jesus Christ) of the free woman (Sarah)” Galatians 4:30.

Most are inept, especially politicians, when it comes to understanding American reality of 21st century international affairs. In one scriptural verse, we have sketched the cause of 9/11. As well, as the global Islamic intentions. Seek out someone, who can expand on the scriptures made available in order to provide the complete picture.

The implications of the Muslim, Jewish and Christian tensions are immense. They were launched upon the world with birth by ancient supernatural forces between Ishmael and Isaac.

Politicians, and diplomats will be of no help in containing this war between Ishmael and Isaac. They simply do not understand this ancient paradigm reaching us today. Our only hope is a revitalized public which needs to become energized supernaturally to once again defeat the greatest evil ever known to humanity, Islam.

tumultuousness of the unseen

Beautiful Adonis, a man who swung both ways. Having a incestuous love life with Cinyras, King of Cyprus and his daughter. So handsome was Adonis that Aphrodite the goddess of love, fell in love with him. Such a fortune was not only dangerous but deadly for beautiful Adonis. Because Adonis lost his life while boar hunting. Ancient legend from the underworld claims Adonis lost his life to the shape shifting god of war Ares. Who in fact was jealous of Adonis, and so he made his entrance topside as a boar. (source:Greek mythology)

For those who know their ontology, or the nature of being, than it is known that death makes a wrong right. Many examples could be cited, but this cite says it all. “For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one, much more they who receive  abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ,” Romans 5:17.

And thus, we have the wrong inflicted upon us made right. But the saga of wrongs made right continues. And as long as there is a topside, it’ll always be that way.

The nature of being plays out many ways. Here’s one that’s not of mythology, where a right was made wrong. Abraham the beloved of God became anxious because he was ninety and without a heir to expand his vast kingdom that God said would occur.

The non-mythological record:”Now the LORD had said unto Abraham, get out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, unto a land that I will show you,” Genesis 12:1. Well into his journey, Abraham said, “LORD God, what will you give me, seeing I go childless, ….” And He brought him forth aboard, and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars. If you are able to number them;’ and he said unto him, ‘so shall your seed be,'” Genesis 15:2,5.

How could it be in that Sarah was old and childless. So his wife, Sarah, told him that it would be okay for him to have sex with her Egyptian maid servant, Hagar, Genesis 16:2. And from that single bedroom encounter Hagar conceived a child, Genesis 16:4. But the well intended Sarah, despised her actions. And Sarah said unto Abraham, “The wrong done me be upon you. I have given my maid into your bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes. The LORD judge between me and you,” Genesis 16:5.

That’s exactly what God did. Time moves on and so did Hagar. But the angel of the LORD found Hagar, and said unto her. “Behold you are with child, and shall bear a son, and you shall call his Ishmael; because the LORD has heard your afflictions,” Genesis 16:11.

This son born of Hagar was God’s way of using a right to make it wrong. Because we know, that every wrong must be made right. And Ishmael himself was a wrong that Jesus Christ would make right.

But first Ishmael because he was not the right promised to Abraham. And we know; that by one wrong, hardships are created for all. So this very angel, said to Hagar, “And he shall be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presences of all his brothers,” Genesis 16:12.

Abraham was certainly prone to make mistakes. And did so by laughing at God, And praying, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before you ! Genesis 17:17-18.

And forthwith it was granted. “I have heard you; BEHOLD! I have blessed him and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation, ” Genesis 17:20.

Now the stage is set for the start of the greatest wars of all time which will be fought topside. The Islamic people, as they war against the people of Abraham. Being realized for the first in the United States on 01 September 2001.

Back tracking to Abraham: And God said to Abraham, … “And I will bless her, and give you a son also by her; YES! I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.” And God continued, “Sarah you wife shall bear you a son, indeed; and you shall call his name Isaac. And I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, with his seed after him,” Genesis 17:15-17,19.

Again for those who know their ontology, and for those who don’t. A pearl of understanding has been given you. Spend it wisely in the preservation of one of the greatest gifts God gave to humanity. Because from Abraham came Isaac, David and Jesus Christ. and from them came the greatest trio of nations ever configured. They are Israel, Great Britain and the United States. Through their seed, we became one humanly, and through Jesus Christ some of us have become supernaturally one as Jews and Gentiles. It’s done through Romans 5:17.

On Tuesday, 11 September 2001, and upon the sacred soil of America. Muslims in their way said, we’ll capture the prize of all time. But God said the prize was to Isaac and not Ishmael. Muslims over the centuries have never accepted the edict of what God ordered. They didn’t on, 9/11, and America can expect repeats of 9/11. Its cost American tax payers millions of dollars to make it later rather than sooner

This has been a discussion of wrongs made right and right made wrong. With a conclusion, that Christ will make the wrong right permanently.

It’ll happen this way: “And I saw heaven opened and, BEHOLD! A white horse; and he that sat upon him was called FAITHFUL and TRUE, and in righteousness He does judge and make war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He he had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself. And He was clothed with a vesture (body) dipped in blood; and His name is called THE WORD OF GOD. The present tense of the verb means what your reading is like no other read. Because it is the very presence the living Christ One of many unexplainable of God’s mysteries by human reasoning. And the armies, that were in heaven followed Him on white horses. Clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth a sharp sword that with it He would smite the nations, and He shall rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the winepress with the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS,” Revelation 19:11-16.

With Jesus making His final entrance into earths sphere. Making the wrongs of Islam right with its destruction.

Christians are not suppose to be silent onlookers in the presences of wrong. Become Islamic smart, so you can become Christian ready to defend self and country. The best offense is accomplished through a superior defense. Seek out those, who can teach you those tactics of offenses and defenses.

The sixth sense

So it was asked yesterday, did Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stand alone as an ostracized figure during Pope Francis’ hoax of a gallery for peace? It’s up for grabs!

Most have heard it said, “He’s so heavenly minded that he’s no earthly good.” It’s suppose to serve as a wake up call. It’s time to get going with the practicalities of life. I argue that its necessary to be heavenly minded to be of any earthly good.

Of all of God’s creation, our species is wired to know, experience and sense God. To sense God is different from experiencing him. Sensing him is more than a few rungs up the spiritual ladder.

Psalms 122:6-9, echoes these words. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, 6a.” And the spirit of God says this will be ones experience, “May they prosper, who love you,” 6b. “Peace be within your walls. Prosperity within your palaces.” For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, “Peace be within you.” Because of the house of the LORD God, I will seek your good.

Many fall short, if they only think in terms of material things. First it should resonant as relationships of spirituality. It’s a spiritual art that allows supernatural associations of awareness between people. It’s the ability to know people from the interior of their beings. After barely scanning their exterior self.

Abraham was such an artist. Absorb this conversation between Abraham and three visitors from Genesis 18; Statement:Then the LORD appeared to him… by the trees, as he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day. Commentary:At that moment he was unaware of God’s presences.

So he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold three men were standing by him; and when he saw them, he ran from the door to meet them, and bowed himself down to the ground, and said, “My Lord, if I have found favor in your sight, do not pass by your servant.”

Commentary:Abraham didn’t immediately recognize God, but he quickly scrutinized his visitors, who then appeared most likely as angels. Most people then, and today, would not have had the presences of spirituality to know that these three were none other than ordinary men. We know that Abraham by his behavior recognized the inner beings of his quest and knew that these three were not ordinary visitors.

Abraham extended graciously his hospitality to his non-human visitors. They sternly accepted, and commanded him, “to do as he said.” So Abraham hurried about shouting orders to everyone to quickly prepare food for his guests.

But, they seemed to have come to chastise Abraham’s wife, Sarah. After eating they asked Abraham, “Where is your Sarah your wife?” Abraham replied, “Here in the tent.” And God said, though in angelic form, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, Sarah your wife shall have a son.” Sarah was listening in the tent door which was behind him. Being old, and well advanced in age; having passed her childbearing age, she laughed. “Thinking to herself, in old age shall I pleasure my lord being old also?”

And the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, “Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?”

Drawing this response, “Is anything to hard for the LORD?” And so he reiterated to Sarah, “I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

Sarah being in good human form denied laughing and mocking God, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid. Still in angelic presence, God said, “No but you did laugh!”

Commentary:Abraham externally could internally able to sense God while Sarah could only experience God. Sarah was still on the elementary level of her spirituality. A place were most Christians reside today.

What about Netanyahu? What is his level of spirituality? Did he, or did he not sense that he didn’t stand alone? As discussed yesterday, as the person made to look as the problem to peace and not the solution.

We have no way of really knowing, do we? But its safe to say, I suspect, that he senses the energy generated by the millions of Americans, who stand with him and thus Israel. Like no other nation, Americans, and Israelis are bonded as one.

Such energy is harnessed by God and transmitted into the inner core of his being, his soul, God himself. It’s a sixth sense which is an astute awareness of something not explainable. Significant numbers of American people stand with me. It gets Netanyahu through the most difficult of times. Sometimes called a feeling.

For new born’s in Christ, it’s the awareness generated through, 2 Corinthians 5:17. Growth elevates one to experience, 1 Corinthians 2:14-16. The Abrahamic experience is by rare privilege and occurs through, Psalms 65:4. The goodness of his house is his presence in his temple, our bodies. God decides, and can’t be limited to whom or how one is chosen. Paul summed it best by saying, “For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ,” 1 Corinthians 2:16.

How a win becomes a loss.

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

The devoted people of Psalms 65:4, understand this deceiver of John’s revelation to be God’s Antichrist as portrayed in Revelation 13:1;3. Paul called him a thief in the night. And warned, for when they say, “Peace and safety! Then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And, they shall not escape,” 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3.

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

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

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

On that day gathered with him were the now deceased Israeli President Shimon Peres, a figure of no importance, as his office is mostly ceremonial.

Absent from Satan’s nest was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, head of the Israeli government. Shunned by Francis, no doubt because he has urged the world to ignore Mahmoud Abbas’ new unity Palestinian government which took office a week earlier, 01 June 2014. Because Netanyahu, no doubt understood that Abbas was the puppet of the puppeteering anti-Israeli Hamas group calling for Israels complete annihilation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you want to know the prophetic history of the fig tree, the two previous discussions are available. They provide significant historical teachings, as to our troublesome times.

1948 what it means today part 2

To really benefit from this discussion, it’s highly recommended that you carefully read the previous two postings. Why? Because they provide significant proof that the Bible is authentic, reliable and thus believable. Read with an open mind, you’ll accept the Word of God, as living breathing voice of divine providence. A changer of individual lives and of nation states.

A number of scriptural verses were cited. Of particular interest was the legend of the fig tree, as a prophecy that has been mostly fulfilled. This historic legend of a prophecy was developed by Jesus. And unfolds this way, “Now learn this parable from the fig tree. When its branch has become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors. With fulfillment through horrific catastrophic events that are showing their severity and will intensify. Causing Jesus, to intervene to end it). Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.” Texts:Matthew 24:32-34.

Of interest is that last clause stated by Jesus. Who are the people of that last generation. So very significant because it answers the questions the disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24:3. When will the world, as we know it end?

Jesus assured the world for all eternity that the generation that saw the blossoming of Israel between, 01 January 1948 and 14 May 1948, represents that generation of Jews in Matthew 24:34.

Creating a time line from 1948 to 2019 represents seventy one years of a generation of people still alive today. Which suggests that Jesus’ warnings about deception both within the secular world and religious community will get out of hand. We hear about wars that will not end. And others, that are flexing their war instincts and will fire up causing more global instability. It must be, said Jesus, but the end is not yet.

Those wars seem to be regional wars which are causing global mayhem. Jesus continued his tirade by warning against wars by groups of nations moving against other well established governments. Like the destruction of the United States which was also discussed in this long series of discussions. With Islam becoming the worlds new master. Few think that will occur, but it could if their seat of power eventually centers in Turkey. Seems unimaginable, but the same was said about Israel becoming a nation state.

Food shortages, old and new endemic diseases will plague the community of nations. Weird weather patterns will inflict their own sorrow. And Jesus declared, “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Texts Matthew 24:4-8.

Seems reasonable to conclude that all that and more can’t happen within the life span of all people alive today, who saw Israel become a nation state in 1948. Because it doesn’t seem possible that they have enough years to live to see all that happen. Agreed? Oops not so fast.

So we must ask, what is a biblical generation? Because generations keep extending themselves, as people live longer. Once a generation was as few as forty years. Then reaching seventy, and beyond, with some saying that soon, we’ll calculate a generation as being one hundred years. And if back track to biblical times a generation could be hundred of years. Genesis 5:5, records that Adam lived to be nine hundred and thirty years. And Genesis 5:8, says, So all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died.” So all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred and sixty nine years and he died.

Babbling over what constitutes a generation is the wrong approach. Looking closely at what Jesus said, we discover that Jesus declared that the generation that was in existence, 01 May 1948, or that witnessed the the budding of fig tree of Israel, 14 May 1948, would not pass, or die out before all the prophesied events would happen.

So it seems that a biblical generation must be understood from this context. Or from God himself, who indicated from the lives of Noah, Seth and Methuselah that a generation could be nine hundred plus years. Most would argue that living up to nine hundred years today is impossible. That’s what some of those people said when various confidant’s of God declared that Israel would return to the lands of their fathers, as a nation state. And behold to the surprise of most, it occurred! And if need be, the words of Jesus, “Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place,” Matthew 24:34. Will it come through a Noah, Seth or Methuselah. Which means they, or he, or she, is live among us. Because the legend of the fig tree, had its blossoming in 1948.

1948 what it means today

After a nights sleep, Jesus hit the road. Hunger set in, and Jesus saw a fig tree down the road. Some figs to eat seemed appetizing, but when he got there he found only leaves and no figs, for it was not the season for figs. Some what agitated Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.” Texts:Mark 11:12-14. Prophetically Israel being canceled out, as his intended provider of the good news of his saving grace.

After experiencing some hostilities from the community, Jesus and his disciples passed by that fig tree again. The disciples saw that the fig tree had dried up from the roots. Peter remembered what Jesus had said to the tree. So Peter said, Rabbi look! “The fig tree which you cursed has withered away.” Texts:Mark 11:20-21.

The admonishment Jesus inflicted upon the tree that caused the tree to die is prophetically symbolic of Israel’s stubbornness to obey their God. Which eventually caused God to chase them from the lands, that he had given to them. Scattering the Jews to the four corners of the earth. Recorded in the only book of history that matters, the WORD. Saying through the penmanship of Moses, “And it shall be, that just as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from the land which you go to possess. Then the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there shall you shall serve other gods which neither you or your fathers have known -wood and stone. Texts. Deuteronomy 28:63-64.

As history progressed, the Jews experienced enslavement, hatred, brutality and even death from their captors. Along came Jesus making this promise. “Now learn this parable from the fig tree. When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. Also, when you see all these things (explanation in yesterday’s discussion) know that it is near, at your door! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away tell all these things take place.” Matthew 24:32-34.

Bringing to fulfillment those questions the disciples wanted Jesus to answer. Which was the bringing together two of the three questions into one, Which amounts to this, “And of the end of the age?”

When the fig trees branches become tender and puts fourth leaves you know that summer is near. It’ll be the combining of, “When will these things be and what will be a sign of you coming? Equals the end of the world, as we know it or the end of the age.

The branch became tender, when the providence of God gave the Jews a wasteland of property to be their nation state. It occurred on the day the British Mandate over Palestine expired, 14 May 1948. The Jewish People’s Council gathered at the Tel Aviv Museum and approved a proclamation declaring the establishment of the State of Israel. What happened there most of the world thought to be impossible. But divine providence isn’t intimated, influenced or controlled by world opinion. It’s the opposite as noted by the prophetic seer Daniel, who texted this message from God. “This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it whomever he will. And sets over it the lowest of men.” Text:Daniel 4:17. For this fulfilled prophetic historic event, Israel, “the lowest of men.” Jews a group of nobody’s, who overnight became the worlds most powerful and influential somebody’s.

The Soviet Union was the first state to fully recognize Israel as a nation state on, 17 May 1948. Followed by Poland and several other nation states. The United States followed suit on, 11 May 1949.

Divine providence is defined in Revelation 19:13, and acted accordingly.”I will bring back the captives of My people Israel. They shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given,” says the LORD your God. Texts:Amos 9:14-15.

 

Checkmate

Two players sit across from each other contemplating how to checkmate the opposing king. But bound, by specific rules of play. What if those sixteen pieces of six kinds, could communicate with the mover of those pieces. Would the mover be motivated to make different moves; resulting in a possible different end? Most likely not because the mover is in control, and ultimately selects the moves, and associated consequences.

Think of humanity as players contemplating how to checkmate opposing nations. For this scenario, the Bible is considered the binding rules of play. One of the players in this game is Israel. The other player is represented by the remaining nations. In this game of life there are far more than sixteen pieces of six kinds. The pieces representing nations and the kinds representing people.

The problem one might conclude is that the players Israel and the other nations are driven to ignore the rule book. And the worlds people, who might be able steer the players to a different checkmate are mostly indifference.  So, it could be argued that ignoring the book of rules, and public indifference to steer a different course is responsible for our current world dilemma.

In a time far in the past a God created a people. God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our Likeness,” Genesis 1: 26a.

From Genesis, we will fast foreword to Ezekiel. Where a prophecy foretells the regathering of a disobedient Israeli people into a rich and powerful nation. In Ezekiel 36, from other countries. I will bring you to your land, verse 24. You will dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, verse 28. Prophecy fulfilled in 1948. I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, verse 30. Israel the land of plenty from a barren desert, verses 34-38.

Israel the recipient of many checkmates is now the chess-master of the Middle East. Surrounded by helpless Islamic nations wanting to exercise the ultimate checkmate. The annihilation of this Jewish state.

A bald man, who wore a wig was riding one day, when a puff of wind blew the wig off. At which, the bystanders got a hearty laugh,

Reining in his horse, he said, “It’s not surprising that I can’t keep hair which is not mine on my head. Since its original owner on whose head it grew could not keep it there either.”

Let no person be cast down by the misfortunes which befall them. What one did not inherit at birth can never be a permanent possession. Naked we came into this world, and naked shall we leave it.

Solomon was permitted perhaps a once in a lifetime experience. So he penned, “I have seen the God given task with which the sons and daughters of men are to be occupied. He made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts. Except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and do good with their lives. And that every person should eat, drink and enjoy the good of their labor. It is a gift from God.” See Ecclesiastes 3:10-13.

glory or not

A monkey made a great impression by dancing before an assembly of animals, who elected him their king. The fox was jealous. Noticing a snare with a piece of meat in it, he took the monkey to it and said, “Here’s a choice titbit that I have found. Instead of eating it myself I have kept it for you as a perquisite of your royal office.”

The monkey went at carelessly and was caught in the snare. When he accused the fox of laying a trap for him, the fox replied. “Fancy a fool like you being king of the animals!”

People, who attempt things without due consideration suffer for it and get laughed at into the bargain.

2020 political change is in the air but will it matter

The writer of Ecclesiastes wrote, “That which has been is what will be. That which is done is what will be done because there is nothing new under the sun Ecclesiastes 1:9. Seems that what is out there is waiting to be rediscovered and  implemented again. For this discussion, refection, and action are the tools required, as the teeter-totter tilts back and forth through out the world of politics.

What will it take to get the people of the United States to tilt that teeter totter in the peoples favor? It’ll only happen, when enough people realize that our government nationally, and locally does not serve the best interest of us common folk. Our government, whether seated in Washington, or in our state capitals are government for the few, who are not rich and thus powerful. Against the many who are struggling to make ends meet. Reflect on the struggles of the people to secure social and economic justice in this country. Those struggles have been against the rich and powerful.

Wake up and oust those politicians, who have always been content to allow misery and suffering to occur among the general population. They hire consultants to fed the public with persuasive political jargon, as to, why a vote for a particular Democrat or Republican would best serve their needs. A collection of lies that voters buy in a majority one way or another. Resulting in the rich getting richer and the poor poorer.

A  litany of struggles could be listed. Better for the readers to use their rationality in order to identify struggles meaningful to each reader. Was the struggle resolved by virtue of your vote? If not, how long are voters willing to wait for their resolutions? If history is a reliable teacher, forever.

According to the writer of Ecclesiastes, those struggles have always been with humanity. They just get recycled millennium to millennium. However, in many instances they just returned sooner with an appropriate  timely appearance. The end result is the same economic, and social oppression for the masses of people across the nation.

Tottering the teeter in the peoples favor is a real possibility, if the electorate junks all political jargon. And elects a president that will produce what the electorate dictates. We’ll all know, who that candidate is because he or she will philosophically innately identify with the voter. One of seventeen democrats will emerge to engage trump for the presidency. Eighteen should former V.P. Joe Biden enter the fray. If he does, it’ll mean a second term for trump.

new zealand muslim massacre

at least 50 people killed, 39 survivors remained hospitalized eleven in critical condition. The killer responsible left behind a 74 page manifesto which explained who he was, and his reasoning for the attack.

Responding, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, “White supremacist, age, 28, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, had chosen to strike New Zealand because we represent diversity, kindness and compassion.”

Madness has no sympathy for such noble attributes. Seems like madness has taken over the world. Danger mysteriously lurks everywhere. Wearing many grotesque facades.

Byword – Be careful because you can be killed for just being who you are or purposely targeted.

Why is the nation shocked over the college admission and bribery scandal? Could this be the reason? Once read the following. “Life is not determined by consciousness, but consciousness by life.” In other words it’s the human way in more ways the one, if one can get away with it. Think Donald J, Trump and his collection if associates.

different season same issues

What follows, is what, is said about fairness. With fairness being very dimensional in application. Think issues A – Z! And apply those issues, for our times later on.

Matters that have escaped politicians, especially Republicans. Now there is a fresh new team in town. And they play, “Green Ball.” Giving working people hope for dimensional deliverance from the unfairness hoisted upon us.

Reaching back to the first century there was an employer, who hired seventy people. They were employed in pairs of two, and instructed to travel the country side. In preparation, for the boss, who would soon arrive.

He told his employees that the job would be difficult. Like lambs entering a city where only wolves lived. They were told to travel lightly and once reaching the city. Go house to house and greet the people by saying, “Peace to this house.” There they were to share that message that the recipient would somehow understand. And if not understood, the two would know it.

Once the conversation ended, they were to remain as guest. Eating and drinking such foods as their hosts might provide. The crux of this is what Jesus said, “For the laborer is worthy of their wages.” See Matthew 10:1-7.

Fast forward to our century and that same theory applies, as well, as do those, A – Z issues. The laborer is still worthy of their wages allegorically measured by food, comfort and shelter. And from the mutual understanding of, “Peace to this house.” Perhaps being symbolic to needs beyond food, comfort and shelter.

How is aforementioned to be accomplished? Legislatively of course! But it must go beyond that because as sure as, Rep. Alexandria Ocosia Cortez D-NY, and her associates came to town, they’ll leave. That’s politics! In the meantime, we working Americans by voting must make sure the green movement continues. With the Senate and White House being captured. Real peoples legislation can emerge.

The going beyond that must be done through unionization of the work force. Think! Why have federal, state legislators, courts and corporate conglomerates worked to destroy the unionization of the workforce. Answer! It gives workers power, equity fairness for all those A – Z issues. Which is exactly what the current power structure fears.

Rule of thumb, if the system is for it, be against it.

the green deal

The green deal will prevail because its time has come. People are fed up with political gobbledygook.

How might it happen? Well, for starters against all odds.

Rightness has a way manifesting itself victoriously by means perhaps supernaturally. After sometimes eons of sleep. Awakening to mortals seemingly by means of, ‘O my God.’ Listen to Me, you, who sense rightness. Hearts focused upon His intergalactic ways. So don’t fear their reproach. Nor be afraid of their insults. For the moth will eat them up, like a garment. And the worm, will eat them like wool. But My rightness will be forever, and My deliverance from generation to generation. See Isaiah 51:7-8.

weeping 4 fairness

Perpetuate ignorance! Side with Republican Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell and his entourage of the blinded. Who legislate to prosper the wealthy, against people struggling to earn enough money to work only one job. Immediate $15. minimum wage tagged with an instant wage increase for inflation. And, fight for unionized work environment to assist in making it happen.

We all know that won’t happen, so support Rep. Cortez’s D-NY, and her progressive associates, to make their Green Deal a reality. Available to elaborate upon this discussions contents. Or any other topic of public interest. Found through the Contact Us link on my Home page.

economics

It seems reasonable that working people labor, so that they have the ability to turn their earnings into various consumption’s. Therefore low prices are in their best interest. But low prices isn’t a gadget for profitability of capitalists because it’s a nasty word called deflation. The working peoples sustainable ally.

The American goal before its inception as a nation state was one of theft. Those early settlers took from the indigenous people on these now American lands what didn’t belong to them. They proceeded to ruthlessly slaughter a people of color that they tagged as savages. Their grotesqueness for greed and profit included indentured servitude meaning free labor of mostly Europeans. And the implementation of slavery from among the African peoples. All for profit, and not an iota humanness. Even after the Civil War because it still exists today. It’s just done in camouflaged ways, as is indentured servitude.

Succinctly here’s how the American economy works. Manufacturers allow production of goods to be exhausted. Causing what capitalist economist refer to as inflation meaning demand exceeds supply. So to make the adjustment to sustain profits they raise consumer prices. Manufacturers crank up the machinery for production. Demand continues, so they create additional jobs. And the word goes forth, WOW! More jobs more consumer spending money. The problem for working Americans is that those jobs fail to meet capitalism inflationary tactics. Resulting with people being forced to work more than one job. And of course, such a system of economics cause multiple auxiliary issues.

The mid-term elections offers change, if working Americans don’t allow themselves to be swindled by the artist of dupery, Republican! Progressive Democrats like, Rep. Alexandria Ocosio Cortez D-N.Y., and their Green Deal offers many needed changes.
