never say never

The previous discussion focused upon relationships between our Creator and we mortals. The focus was on God’s promise to annihilate all of humanity along with the entire earth. Leaving it barren like other planets in our galaxy. Suggesting that there might have been life perhaps on Mars, Jupiter and elsewhere.

From 2004-2021 military aviators had reported 144 unidentified flying objects (UFO). With greater mobility of any space craft they’ve ever seen. Suggesting that alien technology is far superior to that of the United States.

Which eventually caused the Pentagon to release a report that concluded that reported aerial unidentified phenomena (AUP) lacked sufficient specificity to be credible.

An insult to well trained, and experience United States military aviators, This Padre says, “nonsense,” and its also an insult to the American public. It’s naive to think that life has not, or isn’t existing elsewhere in environments distant from ours.

We’ll just have to wait, see and experience how all this plays out. This writer is most interested in the aforementioned.

This writer is working a series of discusses dealing with phenomenon of other God’s referenced as lesser God’s by biblical historians like Joshua, and the unknown historian of Judges and others.

Subject matter that most theologians either ignore, or are in complete ignorance of both other Gods, and the UFO, AUP realities.

Because modern day Christendom is mostly about prestige, scare tactics, and money. And, they really are businesses that should pay taxes.

And the feds could allocate that money to help erase hunger and homelessness in America. Which from this writers perspective is another American tragedy.

Oh the urge to discuss Republican politics in these matters, and why Trump should never be allowed to once again occupy the Peoples house. But for now that’ll have to wait for another time.

And return this discussion back to its original intent. About an angry God with the mind set to obliterate and make extinct the human species, and any, and all evidence of our existence.

Which from a biblical perspective is referenced as a prophecy. Something set in stone and unalterable. Being God has its own perks. And for reasons of His own choosing, He found Noah! All of which suggests that certain prophecies can be altered, when a Noah is found.

So we’re discussing history, and history is the story of God’s vengeance and mercy. Everything else is peripheral to that struggle. Which has a tendency, to manifest as secular history. But history must be balanced with the word of God to be understood.

But remember, it’s a two way street, meaning good times can be made bad, and of course, the converse applies. Which we’ll discover, as we move on.

And that’s got to fit into the presentation of the historical record also from a scriptural point of view, if history is going to be properly understood.

Finding a Noah, or maybe finding a few Noah’s is what these discussions are ultimately about. Impacting our lifetime, from centuries long past. God found such a Noah in Jacob, see Genesis 32:28.

Which led to the destines of three nations, Israel. Great Britain and the United States, see Genesis 48:16. Which was taught through previous discussions, and to have occurred through Jacob, his son Joseph, and his grandsons Ephraim and Manasseh.

But that’s all old stuff taught and hopefully learned. So we’ll just move on, and see what an ancient historian Hosea has to teach us.

For starters, he writes that God has declared that these nations, and their respective peoples to be REBELS who have gone deep into misbehavior’s whom He has disciplined, see Hosea 5:2.

God made this promise to Joseph, “The archers have harassed him, and shoot at him and hated him. But his bow remained in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob. From there is the shepherd, the Stone of Israel,” see Genesis 49:23-24

O! How that has played out over the centuries, for the Jews. Reaching the modern day Israelite’s through Ephraim (Great Britain) and Manasseh (U.S.).

Modern day examples would be two world wars of the twentieth century. Along with the inability of twenty plus Arab Muslim doing their best to annihilate tiny Israel.

The enemies of the world wars could not prevail against Ephraim and Manasseh because of those aforementioned verses.

As can not, Israel’s 21st century enemies, the Arab Muslim world. Even though gentile nations are aligning themselves with their conquest.

The secret is to remain shielded by the mighty God of Jacob. The Shepherd who is that rock solid stone, and thus impenetrable shield. For nations, and individuals just like us.

To be continued: But first two parting thoughts. “Then say to them, ‘thus says the LORD God, BEHOLD! I will take the people of Israel from among the nations to which they are gone, and will gather them from every side, and bring them into their own land,'” see Ezekiel 37:21.

History fulfilled for Israel in 1948, and then Israel extended its borders as a result of an unprovoked attack by the Arab Muslim world in 1967.

And sometime in the future, Israel will capture more land because all of Palestine belongs to Israel.

A time will also come the mighty army of Israel (Ezekiel 37:10) will have to expel all Arab Muslims from Jerusalem. Because it’s the City of King David, and their capital city.

Here is the treasury of the United States. Joseph a fruitful vine by a well, whose branches grew over the wall,” see Genesis 49:22. American prosperity for national richness, and strength during peace and war were gifts from God.

To make the mistake, and laugh will find laughter turned into tears. Because what use to be America will be no more, as the well will dry up, and the branches will have died.

And if you haven’t noticed, you will, as the process is under way. So obvious for those who are attuned to the aforementioned scriptures, especially, Genesis 49:24. Eradicate that formula, and individuals and nations crumble.

They say hope runs eternal. Lets hope so because that’s the journey for tomorrow.

The following is one of histories greatest accounts. Which is best understood for clarity purposes by reading yesterdays discussion, “Supernatural Art Of Mind Shifting.”

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, v. 17.

That the eyes of your understanding being enlightened that you may know what is the purpose for your life.

And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe. And what are  the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, v. 18.

And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to working of His mighty power, v. 19.

Which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places. Far above all principalities, and powers, and might, and dominions, and every name that is named. Not only in this age, but also in that age which is to come, verses 20-21.

Putting all things under His management. And making Him to be the head of the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all,” verses 22-23 of Ephesians 1:17-23, accomplished through critical analytical interpretation.

supernatural art of mind shifting

If God had not changed His mind, human existence would have ended with the flood that consumed Noah’s world. Because God had decided that His patience with humanity had ended.

But before that, imagine Adam, and Eve prior to the flood. They were not beings like you and me.

They were created in the image of God. And we know, that God is a Spirit. So as spirits, they were capable instant movement of great distances just by thought.

Their intelligence was unfathomable to we mortals. Keep in mind they were created in the image of God. Thinking images that would became instant realities. Realities makers of extraordinary capabilities just like their Creator.

That was exactly what Jesus did during His earthly visit. And that was the impetus for the aforementioned. And that’s what we can expect, when we reside with Him upon His new earth.

But by free choice they traded their spirit selves, and became fleshly substances. And here we are, just like Adam and Eve.

But we have that tomorrow to look forward to. When time, and experiences will revert back Eden’s habitat and ways.

During this discussion we’ve talked about Adam and Eve being spirit beings like their Creator.

We generally think of spirit beings as being invisible. However in John we have this account.

Jesus had been murdered, and had been placed in His grave. The disciples feared for their own lives. and where in hiding behind closed locked doors. When suddenly without knocking, or given entry into the room. Jesus appeared suddenly, and said to them, “Peace be with you!” John 20:19.

No doubt they were startled with fear. So Jesus showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord,” John 20:20.

The point being Jesus was in spirit form, and the disciples physically recognized Him. And so will it be with us, when we are assembled with Him. Which also indicates that we’ll also recognize others like us, family and friends.

But Jesus had another motive when He appeared before them, as coming from nowhere. Instant thought with speed as quick as thought. The motive. “As the Father has sent Me, I also send you,” John 20:21. That responsibility reaches us today.

Jesus wasted no time after the Father of glory had raises Him from the state of death. Because He said, to Mary, “Do not hug Me, for I have not ascended to My Father,” John 20:17a.

Like the Son who received His glorious body from His Father, so likewise shall we.

For we have these words, “Our citizenship is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait for our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able to subdue everything to Himself,” Philippians 3:20-21.

destinies manifestations

The Jews are free! Freed through anti-Semite, Cyrus king of Persia in 538 BC. Because a date with destiny mandated their freedom. It occurred because it was announced. “This decision is by 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,” Daniel 4:17.

Part of Cyrus’ proclamation, Ezra 1:1-4, ordered other anti-Semites to help the Jews return to Jerusalem.

The last clause of Cyrus’ proclamation states, “And whoever is left in any place where he dwells, let the men of his place help with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, beside the freewill offerings for the house of God which is in Jerusalem.

And the people within the kingdom complied, and Cyrus, himself returned to the Jews what was rightfully theirs. Property lost to their conqueror when enslaved as prisoners.” (cp. Ezra 1:4-6).

The Jews were taken into captivity, so that they might learn that it is God, who rules in the affairs of men. And they were freed, for the same reason. A lesson that Jews and non-Jews refuse to accept. So that explains the harsh rebukes suffered by Jews and non-Jews. Which was the fate of Nebuchadnezzar which was discussed in this series.

And, the same applied to Elijah’s complaint. In his own way, Elijah experienced, John 14:27, through that supernaturally charged foods also discussed in this series that enabled him to travel the mountain of God. Get it! Elijah was spared the calamity. For us it’s John 14:28-29.

God has scripted history in such a way, so that a lot of history wasn’t intended to be recordings of just past events. Then studied sometime in the future.

Do not think that the second world war wasn’t divinely scripted because it was. Or that the current world war with Islam, has not been divinely scripted because it also was. And will continue to be a formidable foe, even after this age ends. And, there experiencing its doom.

And some of those world war two tyrants will reemerge, with new clothes and new faces, but their souls will be intertwined with the souls of their predecessors. New bodies same evils! And will continue into the next age, and like Islam, there they will meet their doom.

All those historical recordings were preserved not so much as historical data only, as most think. But rather Divinely orchestrated futuristic road maps. So that the faithful of God’s people could discern their tomorrows. And find comfort as recorded in John 14:27-29.

That’s enough for today for that’s a lot to discern and digest.

Here’s a familiar quote to think about. “What goes around comes around.”

stunned by the supernatural

Elijah after being told by an angel that he wasn’t man enough to make a 40 day journey without eating a supernatural charged food, one suspects. Because after eating, Elijah successfully completed his journey. Only to have the LORD ask, “What are you doing here?” Apparently his answer was accepted because Elijah was given a new directive.

But before addressing that directive, if you haven’t, it’s suggested that the reader study the previous discussions. As some of what appears in the above paragraph could be ambiguous to the reader.

The following though strange demonstrates the power of God to conjure the into a destructive force in His service. See 1 Kings 19:11-12.

Perhaps those same forces by God’s dictates are reeking revenge today upon the world community. The answer is within 1 Kings 19:10.

There is a sacred edict that can not be violated without consequences. God can’t be mocked. See Galatians 6:7.

The world community including the United States is mocking God, and will pay the consequences. Guaranteed!

Elijah was concerned over what was occurring because the trend was to absent God the public forum.

In order to accomplish that society went about killing those who stood for God. At one point he tells God that things had gotten so bad, that he stands alone in defending what God expects from His people, and that his own life is in danger.

Today it’s done in a modern 21st century way. As it weaves its evils globally according to the dictates of each nations power brokers.

The avenues are different for the Christ heaters in Turkey, as opposed to the United States.

The end though is designed to meet the means by stretching the limits further and further. Until voices cry out to the heavens for help like Elijah, “O God for only I survive.”

And the word of the LORD says, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; after the fire a still small voice,” 1 Kings 19:11-12.

Think how terrifying it would be to know that the winds were so mighty that the mountains were leveled in your lifetime and right before your eyes. Followed by earthquakes destroying large land masses which created impossible to control fires.

Those truths stand out to be examined. What happened before the LORD, as an observer. Because we are told that the LORD passed by, but had nothing to do with the aftermath of each destructive force. Telling us that like the Ravens, even the elements serve and obey Him without question.

It is only God’s most cherished creation humanoids, to whom God gave freedom to choose that defies Him, then and today. That was Elijah’s complaint! And every thing that followed was in response to humanities defying what was, and is, sacredly recorded as His expectations for human behavior. All recorded in our scriptures, as the Word of the LORD.

And so it is, in our modern world. Natures violent eruptions are supernatural strikes against an erring and defying people.

And then we have these words, “And after the fire a still small voice,” For Elijah it was a new assignment, 1 Kings 19: 15-16. And verse 18, Elijah is assured that 7,000 remain faithful.

So it will always be, because God said so! See Romans 11:5, “Even so then, at the present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace.”

For us, His believing faithful, that still small voice speaks to each in a personal and specific manner. We have the assurance that the gates of hell will not prevail against whatever that still small voice says to each and everyone of us. Concerning our specific assignments. (cp. Matthew 16:18).

Not even death can prevail over the Christ souldier’s efforts in His service. Here’s another sacred edict. “To be absent from the body is to be present with Jesus,” 2 Corinthians 5:8. The believer’s Supreme Commander – in- Chief.

From previous discussions with this series the mighty are dumbfounded. With the menu’s of Divine Providence prevailing. For tomorrow help comes from where its least expected. Because God has a date with destiny.

All around us troubling occurrences strike. Sometimes from the natural manifestation from nature for the good of humanity.

And at other times, the way of an angry God whose message is, “I am displeased with you ignoring what I expect from you. After all, I am your Creator, and you have no right to disobey Me!”

unfolding global drama

14 May 1948, one of the most significant dates in modern history. Because it signaled yet another prophecy to be fulfilled, which was to be one of many.

Launched centuries ago, by the least of the worlds powerful people, Daniel. When he stood before King Nebuchadnezzar, the most powerful person on the world scene. And Daniel said, “But there is a God in the heavens who reveals secrets, and has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days ….” (cp. Daniel 2:28).

For our discussion of what shall befall us in the last days, we’ll start with one of God’s historians, Ezra.

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah (for our purposes). We are interested in one phrase which is, (shall serve the king of Babylon 70 years, (Jeremiah 25:11) which might be fulfilled.

The LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia. So that he made a proclamation through out his kingdom by putting it in writing. Saying, thus says Cyrus king of Persia, “All the kingdoms of the earth that the LORD God of heaven has given me. And he has commanded me to build a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah (the southern kingdom). To build the house of the LORD God of Israel which is in Jerusalem.

Who is among you all his people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah. And build the house of the LORD God of Israel which is in Jerusalem.

And whoever, is left in his place where he dwells, let the men of his place help him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, beside a freewill offerings for the house of God which is in Jerusalem.” End proclamation of Cyrus king of Persia, Ezra 1:1-4).

At the beginning of his Medo-Persian reign in 538 B.C. through 331 B.C. Remember that date because its significant for the, 14 May 1948. Which will be developed as a starting piece of prophetic history as this series progresses. And it’ll help you understand our modern world of chaos.

Because it’s connected to Jacob’s prophecy in Genesis 49:1, where he said, “Come and learn what will occur during the last days. And that befalling, will be catastrophic!

And you as a recipient of this discussion will be one of its participants. Whether or not you are a Christian. And by that its the recognition of what Romans 10:9-10 declares by experience. Which leads to this life transforming acknowledgment of 2 Corinthians 5:17). It’s all apart of the world drama from God on the world scene.

Cyrus wasn’t a Jew, he was a Persian. Yet he did the unthinkable by freeing the Jews. Who were taken as prisoners by his Babylonian predecessor, and made to be slaves through out his empire.

And while prisoners; the lands of Abraham were ruled by Jew haters, and the nations wealth was stolen. Which always occurs, because to the victor goes the prize.

Understand this, and you and you got what it takes to understand world drama from God. Because you’ll think individually, and in a global manner. Because it applies to you and me, and to world leaders and their governments.

“He changes the times and the seasons; He removes leaders and raises up other leaders; He gives wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.” (cp. Daniel 2:21-22).

Even the least of the mighty can be elevated to become world changers which was Daniel’s experience. And preserved for us by example in Daniel 4:17. It’s all the doings of divine providence, whose ways are designed to dumbfound the high and mighty. Aptly represented by King Nebuchadnezzar, whose end is found in Daniel 4:25.

revealed mystery

The twelfth century, Friar Saint Francis of Assisi counseled, “Go for forth and preach the gospel, if necessary use words.”

For Friar Saint Francis, preaching of the gospel silently works in this manner. If I, be lifted from the earth I will draw all people to myself,” said Jesus Christ, (cp. John 12:12.

With Jesus then acknowledging, “I am the way, the the truth, and the life, no person comes to the Father but by me.” (cp. John 14:6).

Reaching us today also in this manner. Through the first century founder of modern day Christendom. The Apostle Paul who counseled, “Now thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are saved, and among those who are perishing.

To the one we are the aroma of death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for such things? (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-16).

For this Padre, it was, Amelia and Walter Brown, who placed the Gospel of John in a conspicuous place.

Glanced through it resulting in some seeds of truth to grow within me. Later, I became one of those saved. Rescued from those who were perishing. Not a verbal word were spoken between us.

And because of the Browns, Jesus announced, “There is joy in the presence of the angels of God, over one sinner who repents.” (cp. Luke 15:10).

It all amounts to this unexplainable silent mystery. “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but you cannot tell where it came from or where it will go, so is everyone born of the Spirit.” (cp. John 3:8).

Why does this Padre, call it a mystery? Because, that’s how his new birth in Christ occurred.

Having this astonishing effect, “Therefore if any person is in Christ, they have become a new creation, old things have passed away. BEHOLD! ‘All things have become new.'” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17).

justice elusiveness

A former banking executive, Andy Dufresne, is sent to Maine’s Shawshank State Prison. Convicted for the murder’s of his wife and her lover, and sentenced to serve back to back life sentences for each of his victims.

Andy doesn’t make of an impression on lifer, Red Redding, the go to guy, who knows how to smuggle contraband into the prison, for a price though. Concluding that Andy’ demeanor was rather uppity.

But eventually, the two men became good friends. One day while conversing in the prison yard this exchange took place.

“There are places in this world that are not made out of stone. Something inside that they cannot touch,” Andy. “What are you talking about?” Red. “HOPE!” Andy.

“Let me tell you something friend! Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man crazy,” Red. “But if it gives you an idea, Red.” replied Andy. “You think that I’m standing on a simple choice! Get busy living or get busy dying,” Andy. “Get busy living, or get busy dying. That’s dam right!” Red.

Andy never gives up his hope and eventually makes a successful escape. Leaving a note for his friend in a prearranged place which said, “Remember hope is a good thing, Red, maybe the best of things, and no good ever dies.” (Source book). “The Shawshank Redemption,” featuring Tim Robins, Andy,  and Morgan Freeman as Red).

Similarly, tough in Christ, we like Andy are not guilty of the crimes that once convicted us. Yet we are still sentenced to life in prison. Because our prison is dominated by evils that make life here at times unbearable.

We find that earth bound truth expressed as, “The mystery of lawlessness which is already at work. But is now restrained and will be so, until He (the God influence) is taken out of the way.” The exit of this current age and entrance into the next. (cp. 2 Thessalonians 2:7).

The He who restrains is the manifestation of  the controlling figure of society (the triune expressions of 1 John 5:7) during this conflict.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities (governments). Against (invisible demonic) powers. (We the just in Christ) are against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (some Christians thus some churches.” (cp. Ephesians 6:12).

Those scriptures mean that the mystery of iniquity is the workings of Satan. But at times his workings are reigned in by governments. Through instruments like the U.S. Constitutional that forbids laws that deny the freedom to worship.

However; the battle continues against, all of the varied configurations of spiritual wickedness. Meaning that those walled castles called churches often serve the mystery of iniquity. Because they embrace teachings, not of Christ.

Leaving those truly in Christ caught in the middle of two evils. Because neither the government; nor oh, so many churches the friends of those, who walk the talk, and talk the walk for Christ.

Because indeed, as Andy suggested  there are places not made of stone. A place were evil can’t reach because it’s within the Christ followers, and manifest itself in an outward manner.

Whereby the Christ followers might be seen as being uppity. Because the Christ followers are not of this world.

Such Truths are as follows, “What! ‘Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, which is in you, which you have from God. You are not your own. You were bought with a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and your spirit (body) which are God’s.'” (cp. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

The hope of the Christ follower is the best of all things, indeed. No good thing ever dies because one way or another this will be the Christ followers escape valve.

“For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive; and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (cp. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

Truly, it’s time to start living because there is a gospel to be shared out there. Because there’s lots of dying going on out there also. We in Christ offer life through Christ. The alternative to death and more.

is it good enough 4-2 day

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible be at peace with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; listen to others, even the dull and ignorant, they too have their story to tell.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons they are a vexation to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interests in your own career, however humble; it is a possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the council of years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nature strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But, do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond wholesome discipline, be gentle to yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than a tree and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is a beautiful world.

Strive to be Happy.

“Get out of America! Flee the Americans! Declare, proclaim this. and utter it to the whole earth. Declared God’s ancient prophet. (cp. Isaiah 48:20b.

Some biblical scriptures have multiple picturesque representations. In Isaiah 48:20b references the Babylon kingdom ruled by King Nebuchadnezzar. But that Babylon statehood with its Chaldean’s citizenry is characterized as America and her peoples.

Jeremiah in chapters 50-52, shows how Isaiah arrived at such a narrative. Saying. Note, “A sound battle is in the land causing great destruction. It’s about how the hammer of the whole earth has been cut apart and broken!

How Babylon (America) has become desolation among the nations! I have laid a snare for you; you have indeed been trapped, O Babylon (America). And you are not aware, have been found, and also caught. Because you have contended against the LORD. (cp. Jeremiah 50:22-24).

So picturesque of America, the most powerful nation ever to nest upon God’s earth militarily (the hammer of the earth vs. 23a)

And tagged, Uncle Sam, because of her generosity. Made so from Daniel’s vision as a lion, that had wings of an eagle that were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth, and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to him. (cp. Daniel 7:4)

How has the United States opposed the Lord? By allowing His presences to be shelved from national and personal and national affairs.

America is the son of Abraham the father of what we call the house of Israel. Commissioned to be the light of the world and salt of the lands.

In addition to shelving her national heritage, the United States has seen fit to equate gay unions as being legal unions. Unions that God condemns with this eternal promise of death. What most do not know is that death is dimensional.

Death is so for those who engage themselves in such relationships, and those who don’t, but condone them.

Read for yourself, and discover the truth in Romans 1:18-32. Read carefully; and discover that those, who are engaged in gay unions have given up the natural for the unnatural.

And understand that practitioners of homosexuality, and that do not, but condone such practices are also deserving of death.

Do not misconstrue the death sentence as a license to kill. It isn’t! Such judgments will occur, or are occurring within the divine providence of God Almighty!

Want to do something worthwhile? Perfect your sanctification through Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith. (cp. 1 Thessalonians 4: 4-12; for the pursuit of the quiet live, verses 11-12). Run that life with endurance because its the race that has been set before us! (cp. Hebrews 4:3-12). Shun the natural world embrace the supernatural.

mind shifting a supernatural art

If God did not change his mind, human existence would have ended with the flood that consumed Noah’s world. Because, God had decided that His patience with humanity would be limited. Humanity through Adam and Eve became a fleshly substance.

Something not exactly pleasing to God. Causing God to number their existence to one hundred twenty years. Genesis recognizes that the human condition had changed.

Men have intercourse with woman as the means of procreation. Resulting in a species consumed from the depth of their being to reproduce nothing but evil continually. God apparently saw this as a betrayal of His original intentions.

So great was His indignity that God regretted having granted our species life. It was decided by God to destroy all humanity from the face of the earth. Along with everything associated with the earth. For God was sorry, that He had ever brought these various life forms into existence, Genesis 6:3-7.

But God, changed his mind. A man named Noah had found grace in the eyes of the LORD, Genesis 6:8-9. Later God had a conversation with Noah saying, “The end of all flesh is come before me. For the earth, is filled with violence through them. And BEHOLD! I will destroy them from the earth,” Genesis 6:13.

That has been the story of God’s relationship with humanity ever since. Where humanity veers on the edge of God’s destructive vengeance.

Only to be spared because the eyes of God discovers a Noah, Genesis 6:8. Which demonstrates, God’s true nature which is one of mercy. Allowing humanity another opportunity to get it right, time after time through out history.

Which seems to suggest that certain prophecies can be altered, if a Noah is seen by God. It has happened many times through out history. By the way, history is the story of God’s vengeance and mercy.

Everything else recorded is peripheral to that struggle. Which has a tendency, to manifest itself as secular history. But history, must be balanced with the word of God to be understood.

But remember, it’s a two way street, meaning good times can be made bad. Which we’ll discover, as we move on. And that’s got to fit into the presentation of the historical record from a scriptural point of view, if history is going to be properly understood.

Finding a Noah, or as it may, for finding a few Noah’s is what these discussions are ultimately about. Impacting our lifetime, from centuries long past.

God found such a Noah in Jacob 32:28. Which led to the destines of three nations, Israel, Great Britain and the United States, Genesis 48:16. Which was taught through previous discussions to have occurred through Jacob, his son Joseph and his grandsons Ephraim and Manasseh.

But that’s all old stuff taught, and hopefully learned. So we’ll just move on and see what the Old Testament prophet Hosea has to teach us.

For starters he writes that God has declared these nations and their respective peoples to be REBELS who have been made to know the pain of death and defeat through the centuries. Because they forgot escaping death, and gaining victories occurred  because He had been their shield, Hosea 5:2.

God made this promise to Joseph, “Though the archers have harassed him, and shot at him, and hated him. But his bow remained in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob. From there is the shepherd, the stone of Israel,” Genesis 49:23-24.

O! How it has played out over the centuries, for the ancient and modern day Israelite’s. Spinning continually to impact Ephraim (Great Britain) and Manasseh (U.S.).

Modern day examples would be the two world wars of the twentieth century. Along with the inability of twenty plus Arab Muslim states doing their best to annihilate tiny Israel.

The enemies of the world wars could not prevail against Ephraim and Manasseh because of the aforementioned verses. As can not, Israel’s modern day enemies, the Arab Muslim world.

To Be Continued: But first two parting thoughts.”And say unto them,” ‘thus saith the Lord, BEHOLD! I will take the children of Israel from among the nations to which they are gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them unto their own land,”‘ Ezekiel 37:21.

Prophesy fulfilled for Israel in 1948 and then Israel extended its borders as a result of an unprovoked attack upon them by the Arab Muslim world in 1967.

And most likely, a time will come, when the mighty army of Israel (Ezekiel 37:10) will have to defend and expel all Arab Muslims armies from all of Palestine.

Because it’s the property of God Almighty, and the nation of King David historically with Jerusalem serving as the nations eternal capital city. And eventually Jesus will reign from Jerusalem.

Here has been the treasury of the United States. “Joseph is a fruitful vine, even a fruitful vine by a well, whose branches run over the wall,” Genesis 49:22.

American prosperity through national richness and strength during peace and war were gifts from God. Because America is one with Israel

To make the mistake, and laugh will find the laughter turned into tears. Because what use to be America will then become no more, as the well is dry and the branches have died. The United States is well on its way to that end.

They say hope runs eternal. Let us hope so because that’s a journey for tomorrow.

World drama from God on the world scene

14 May 1948, one of the most significant dates in modern history. Because it signaled yet another prophecy to be fulfilled which would be one of many. Launched centuries ago, by the least of the powerful, Daniel.

When he stood before King Nebuchadnezzar, the most powerful person on the world scene. And said, “But there is a God in the heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days …,” Daniel 2:28.

For our discussion of what shall befall us in the last days, we’ll start with one of God’s historians, Ezra.

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah (for our purposes, we are interested in one phrase which is, (shall serve the king of Babylon 70 years, Jeremiah 25:11) might be fulfilled.

The LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia. So that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: “All the kingdoms of the earth the LORD God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah (the southern kingdom). And build the house of the LORD God of Israel which is in Jerusalem.

Who is among you all his people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah. And build the house of the LORD God of Israel which is in Jerusalem.

And whoever is left in his place where he dwells, let the men of his place help him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, beside the freewill offerings for the house of God which is Jerusalem.” End proclamation of Cyrus king of Persia, Ezra 1:1-4.

At the beginning of his Medo-Persian reign in 538 B.C. through 331 B.C. Remember that date because it’s significant for the date of, 14 May 1948. Which will be developed as a startling piece of prophetic history, as this series progresses.

And it’ll help you understand modern world chaos. Because, it’s tied to Jacob’s prophecy in Genesis 49:1, where he said, come and learn what will occur during the last days. And that, collapse will be catastrophic! And recipients of this discussion could possibly be one of its participants.

Whether or not, you are a Christian. And by that, its the recognition of what Romans 10:9-10 declares by experience. Which leads to this life transforming acknowledgment of 2 Corinthians 5:17. It’s all apart of the world drama from God on the world scene.

Cyrus wasn’t a Jew, he was a Persian Yet he did the unthinkable by freeing the Jews. Who were taken as prisoners by his Babylonian predecessor and made to be slaves through out his empire.

And while prisoners, in the lands of Abraham, they were ruled by Jew haters, and the nations wealth was stolen. Which always occurs because to the victor goes the prize.

Understand this and you got what it takes to understand world drama from God. Because you’ll think individually and in a global manner. Because it applies to you and me, and to world leaders and their governments. “And he changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have no understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him,” Daniel 2:21-22.

Even the least of the mighty can be elevated to become world changers which was Daniel’s experience. And preserved for us by example in, Daniel 4:17. It’s all the doings of divine providence, whose ways are designed to dumbfound the high and mighty. Aptly represented by King Nebuchadnezzar whose end is found in Daniel 4:25.
