interacting with the cosmos pt 24

Here we are in seventeenth chapter of a discussion from the book tagged as wisdom. The Biblical of Job is somewhat mysterious, because we do not know its author. It found its way as a significant inclusion of canonical literature through the providence of God Almighty. It’s filled with the ways earthlings are forced to interact with the universal cosmos.

Job opens this discussion by saying, “My spirit is consumed, and I have lived the number of days given to me, and I am ready for the grave.”

The phrase, “I have lived the number of days given to me.” It’s taken from these truths. “People born of a women find that their days are full of troubles. They come forth as a flower and fades away like a shadow that does not continue. (cp. Job 14:1-2).

“Since their days are determined, the number of their months are with You; You have appointed their limits, so that they cannot pass them.” (cp. Job 14:5).

My days expired in the year of our Lord, 2015. But God is sovereign far beyond human comprehension, extending my days. Shocking the medical staff attending to my care. As they gave me a zero percent chance of survival. That information was shared with me at time of discharge. So if, He can extend life, He can also shorten life. As He did, concerning my younger brother at the same age, as my near death experience.

One of us? Blessings! If not, now is a good time to become one of us through Christ Jesus. Follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. The notice the prompts found in verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek.

This discussion will focus on the spiritual aspects of those days seen through Job chapter seventeen. But with this strategic diversion through prayer, “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (cp. Psalms 90:12).

One last thought before moving to Job 17. I struggled unable to determine how to approach this discussion. At 02:00 hundred hours the answer arrived through a night vision. (cp. Job 33:14-17). Causing me to leap out of bed and start writing.

The silent working of Divine Providence as poured out to us through Job. “Now  give a pledge. Be collateral for me with Yourself.” For us it happened on the Cross. “Insomuch than, as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him, who had the power of death, that is the devil.” (cp Hebrews 2:14).

Job ponders, “Who is there, who will shake hands with me? No one because You have hidden their hearts from understanding. Therefore, you will not exalt them!” (Reference to the three pompous religiousness, who saw everything but new nothing). They who wrongly denounce their friends for personal stature, will even see their children fall.”

“For reasons beyond my understanding, He has made me, a once respected person, an insult among the people. I am so disrespected that they spit in my face. But all is not lost, because the righteous through God are astonished over what’s happening to me. They have risen up against all such hypocrites. It’s the way the Creator works. People like me with clean hands become stronger and stronger. Folks please continue, for their isn’t a wise person among you.”

Finally Job laments. “My better days are an experience of the past. I have said to corruption, You are my father where is my hope? Shall it go down with me to the gates of Sheol, (Hell) or shall we just rest together in the dust?”

This discussion was developed from, Job 17:1-16, by critical analytical interpretation. Other scriptures used where for clarification purposes.

Edgar Allen Poe

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes madly indulge. It has been in the pursuit of pleasures that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of unsupportable loneliness and a dread of some impending doom,” Edgar Allen Poe.

A Poe tale, one suspects, many can identify with. Though it may take many different avenues. Knowing like Poe, its all about the dread of some impending doom.

That fearful dread is death. Recorded as follows. “And as it is appointed for all people to die once, but after that the judgement.” (cp. Hebrews 9:27).

Many among us think that the corpse mourned at the funeral home will soon be put to rest in their grave. Thinking that the departed had met their doom, and are now sleeping in their eternal rest.

There isn’t any such thing as an eternal sleep! Sometime after what appears to be the nothingness of death. Despite what the corpse demonstrates comes the full live consciousness of judgment.

That shell seen in the funeral home is destined to return to what it once was, dust! Illustrated through, Genesis 3:19, the toils of life, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread. Then you shall return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and dust you shall return.”

Like their Creator, a triune being of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (cp. 1 John 5:7-8). Body, spirit and soul are we, the body becomes dust, the spirit returns to God who gave it. (cp. Ecclesiastes 12:7). And our soul, our conscience self remains alive, but dispatched Hades or Hell. In comfort or tormented suffering waiting the call for judgment. The Hades experience is recorded in Luke 16:19-31.

Then at some predetermined time, “And I (John) saw the dead small and great, standing before God, and  books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by things written in the books. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (cp. Revelation 20:12;14-15).

Those whose account is favorable, and recorded in the Book of Life as such. Will experience God’s creation of a new heaven and earth. But, minus the vast bodies of water that we are familiar with today. (cp. Revelation 21:1. Then notice the festivities, and how different things will be. (cp, Revelation 21:2-7).

Not one of us? Join the Christ family by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10, then note verses 11-13. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.

a skunk named trump

Nevertheless: “You’ll always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit,” Oscar Wilde.

Oscar’s 19th century insight explains the idiotic reasons for why trump has voter appeal. With that being the case America is in big trouble whether trump wins or fails with his 2nd term bid.

ghosts and goblins

Tis the time for the paranormal. A time when the unexplainable occurs. An awareness that the unexplainable goes beyond ghosts and goblins by creating a sense that it it’s not make believe.

There is a land of make believe. A place of fantasy and haunted experiences. Its got to be so, or why would so many people argue that make believe is real. So we’ll see, if it’s make believe or not. Time will tell which it is because from that ancient land comes the eerie glow of surprise desperate to burst over the horizon and do what needs to be done. And that is more scary than any ghosts, or goblins paranormal adventures of the season.

They say hindsight is better than foresight for settling the real from the unreal. So at the beginning of the modern era lived a guy said to be a seer. And we all know that a seer is a person, who is able through the supernatural to see what the real is all about.

He said this, times will produce plagues like the Black Death. A plague which killed 75-200 million people through out the known world during the years of 1346-53. Only He didn’t call them plagues. He referred to them as pestilences.

They come out of nowhere, after apparent eradication. Like the Ebola virus which arrived on the world scene from Africa. With the potential to match or exceed that fourteenth century plague.

People globally have every right to be afraid despite what their government is saying about containment. Especially since its suspected that Ebola can be airborne. Global travelers can bring the virus with them and incapacitate a communities faster than one day turns into the next day, And that’s just one eerie glow of surprise desperate burst over the horizon and do what needs to be done all over again. Think of Ebola as an euphemism for many other deadly pestilences like the concern about a deadly flu virus sure to kill many apart from being vaccinated. The constant fear is that virus might adapt making vaccination ineffective. Like the reborn threat of the measles virus. The constant challenge posed by ever adapting death threat from that menacing mosquito.

And now we have COVID-19 that the bump in the White House says its nothing to worry about because soon it’ll be gone. But Americans know better sensing it’s not going to go away anytime in the near or distant future. How many more lives will this goblin capture, as we wait for a magical cure from a vaccine? And very troubling is the emerging concern about the crippling side effects after one survives that pandemic? With the concern that even with a vaccine immunity may not occur!

Then there is ISSI! How eerie is that glow on the horizon bursting over and doing what needs to be done? A non-uniformed army without a navy or air force but with lots of determination. Fighting with weapons taken from fleeing armies trained and equipped by the worlds greatest super power. Who doesn’t have any money except perhaps what it borrows from China. And who, is an ally of Iran and Russia. Tis the season for the paranormal that will not be defeated. Despite what that pestilence called trump declares.

Why such pestilences and war? This is the answer from another seer. For if the firstfruit is holy (Jews), the lump (Gentiles) is also holy; if the root is holy (Israel) so are the branches (House of Israel-America foremost among the House of Israel), so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree. (Source:Romans 11:16-17).

Know this with absolute certainty Israel as the root of God Almighty gave birth to the House of Israel, particularly the United States. Antisemitism is growing in America and throughout the world. Which is the surest way to bring God’s judgment upon the United States, and all other nations, who still are determined to eradicate what is impossible to eradicate because God Almighty said so! The Israeli American grafted rooting is as sacred as marriage between a man and a woman. The latter in it self has put Uncle Sam in his grave. The former will fill his grave with dirt. Making the United States an irrelevant nation. Therefore, to reject Jesus Christ as ones Savior is a sin. Which will bear judgments upon both individuals, as well as their nations. In the very real now and in the hear after because, “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” (Text:Hebrews 9:27). And life proves that dying can be terrifying and a gruesome experience.

And so it will it will be for the House of Israel, unless some Noah’s are found. Who can move God to be merciful again because these Noah’s will find a way to persuade God to change His mind. Because God is looking for people who are just and perfect in their generation. People who walk with God. (Text:Genesis 6:9 and 2 Chronicles 16:9).

God’s chronicler declares our liberation to occur through prayer and this padre suspects action. That action to be determined individually, as each stirs their churches into action. Because the church is God’s perfect remedy, for Americans, who have forsaken Jesus and turned against Israel. And thus, sparing the nation from becoming a foregone people through the crushing judgments of God. Just like it was in the days of Noah.

O! How awesome are the weapons God has at His disposal to humble and if necessary to destroy the arrogant. Some of those weapons He has put into our hands. None greater than this one given to us through another of His chroniclers. “If my people, who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to their prayers made in this place.” (Texts:2 Chroniclers 7:14-15).

Amy Coney Barrett

“The world has yet to see what God will do with a person fully consecrated to Him,” D. L. Moody.

Well, D.L. Moody, the world has seen what consecration to Him can accomplish individually, and nationally, and its occurred more than once. A favorite channel for such an experience is through national governments. (cp. Romans 13:1-5). Think people, not institutions, whether secular or religious! You might think loose cannons!

The Bible is the standard bearer for attaining and sustaining a viable existence from A-Z. Pick any letter that might be of interest for you. Like E for economy, or L for life and H for health. Under each letter other subsets exist.

Governments are God’s servants for creating the various pathways through the aforementioned. And, it’s accomplished through we the electorate, the government.

The problem is that the electorate has lost its spiritual equilibrium, and consequently the government has been secularized. Creating an America that is so divided through partisan politics. That the nation may find itself involved in another civil war. If the presidency on, 03 November 2020, is captured by one side that views by the other as dangerous to its agenda.

Take L equaling life and a subsets thereof being abortion and Affordable Care Act. There is no way that those issue can be resolved in an amiable manner. Especially since 45 picked, Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be elevates as a Supreme Court justice. She could well be the vote that overturns Roe v Wade, and the Affordable Care Act.

And who gives the presidency to 45 for a second time. He lost the presidency the first time by virtue of national vote, The same will occur in 2020. 45 has committed himself to no peaceful orderly transition of power in defeat. His declared way to a fascist second term, is through the Supreme Court. Why because 45 believes that the socialist left will be unwilling to take on his fascists right when push comes to shove.

The beauty of our Constitution is that we the people are the government. With all constitutional office holders being subject to the electorate. And within that frame work, exists the establishment for a separation between church and state.

Meaning that in America the state must be neutral concerning religion and religion can’t become the state. Though many think otherwise, and there lies a major problem that will be very difficult to resolve. Because there are many religionist, who see that as their pathway for eradicating the separation of church and state.

America is as beautiful, as it is unique. Because it’s, we the people who are the legal authority, for how our servants within the executive, congress and judicial branch execute our wishes.

The dilemma is that among we the people a majority of Christ followers are suppose to be the law makers. But everyone knows the polarization of America falls at the doorsteps of American churches. And the churches are so splintered that America has lost its footing to govern. Therefore there is no Christ majority, and that absences is what could propel America into a civil war.

In and through Christ all is not lost. Because we have this eternal promise. “The eyes of the LORD run to an fro through out the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him.” (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:). The of, of the LORD is in behalf of the people and not the churches. T

he church is declared to be putrid and disgusting. (cp. Revelation 3:14-17). Because they are like the profiteers, that Jesus kicked out of the temple. Doing what they do for prestige and money. (cp. John 2:13-16).

Perhaps that’s the way its suppose to be. Because this age like previous ages will end. And a new age will appear. And that age, with all of its horrors, will make this age look glorious. Hard to imagine, but so it will be.

The prophet Isaiah gave us a sketch of world history by authority from Divine Providence. It’s up to us to figure how to put the puzzle together, so that we can know the historical links. The prognosis is not good, if one studies those overlapping links. (cp. Isaiah 46:9-10).

more at risk than meets the eye

“I perceived that when an acorn and a chestnut fall side by side, the one does not remain inert to make way for the other, but both obey their own laws, and spring and grow and flourish as best as they can, till one perchance overshadows and destroys the other. If a plant cannot according to its nature, it dies, so does man,” Edgar Allan Poe.

Previously the fascist tendency of the Republican party came to age with 45. Who is the most uncouth nut to fall to the ground. And as a pure fascist, 45 by perchance overshadows the other nut. With Poe’s charade making it clear the other nut will die. Under the supposedly stewardship of the other nut called Biden and collaborators.

Poe’s charade for this discussion is all about the survival of American democracy. There is only one way to save American democracy is for the electorate to defeat American style fascist leanings of the Republican party. Retire 45 at the ballot box! A second term will end American democracy.

More than 200 retired generals, admirals endorse Biden, including some who served under Trump. “Our allies no longer trust or respect us, our enemies no longer fear us,” said the former officers and officials who wrote in a letter released, Thursday, 24 September 2020.” (Source: NBC News).

“Never in recent history have so many senior and former U.S. officials publicly attached the Commander in Chief they served, or the decisions he’s made, as the ranks lining up saying, President Donald Trump put himself and his re-election ahead of country threatening its security.” (Source: Time, by Kimberly Dozier).

Military, and security officials from both parties blast Trump saying, “Trump not equal to the challenge of the job.” (Source: USA Today).

45 is a monster, and as such, he can’t be believed or trusted. Forces must come together and deny 45 everything on his agenda. Which spells disaster, for the average working Americans.

There is a great divide between the Democrats and Republicans. The Bible records this eventual dooms day. With the Apostle to our era of history recording the following, “But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another.” (cp. Galatians 5:15). If that’s not a sufficient wake up call, Jesus Himself said. “If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand!” (cp. Mark 3:25). For our purposes that house is the United States. And the devouring will be by mutual effort! Taking us right back to Poe’s analogy. With one major difference both will die!

unrest + turmoil = ?

Most likely this current pandemic is the manifestation of a struggle between evil (Satan) and good (God). And the struggle is really heating up.

And for those, who think it’s nonsense!  Put these events on your calendar. And as they manifest themselves, maybe you’ll change your mind.

They’ve all  been here, its just this time around there will be greater intensity from them. Unprecedented regional wars will occur. Along with famines, pandemics, earthquakes, vindictive treachery even within families, lawlessness. With a predominance of religionist declared to be phonies. With this announcement, “All these things are the beginning of sorrows. (cp. Matthew 24:4-12).

They are driven by a demonic thug called Satan. This place we call earth is a decaying sphere. Like all of God’s creation because of disobedience tagged sin it must die.

It was foretold as such, “Then I saw (Apostle John, and declared in Galatians 2:9, to be a pillar of this current time in history) a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven, and the first earth had passed away. Also, there was no more sea. (cp. Revelation 21:1).

It will occur, at best perhaps it can be stalled. So the best approach in the meantime is to be personally readied, through the following.

Give us, O Lord, a steadfast heart which no unworthy affection may drag downward.

Give us an unconquered heart which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside.

Bestow upon us also, O Lord our God an understanding to know you. Diligence to seek your wisdom to find you. And a faithfulness that may finally embrace you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Thomas Aquinas.

COVID-19 and more

Excerpt from a letter written in 1803 concerning the use of government land for churches. “The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries,” James Madison.

There are forces within America that seem to aching to soak the soil of the Unites States in blood. They are mostly Trump supporters! There forces represent the ultra extreme conservative movement and evangelical Pentecostal protestant adherence. Fueled and encouraged by Trump’s ultra divisive political attacks.

Trump himself presents a never before experienced threat, that is, the making of himself as the singular determining authority of American governance. Usurping congressional constitutional oversight responsibility. And the remaking the federal courts, so that the justices march in agreement, as allies against petitioners, who would execute legal challenges against the executive branch.

And now you know why Trump is such an ardent admire of dictatorial regimes.

That possibility didn’t escape, James Madison, for he wrote these words in one of his Federalist Papers. “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive and judiciary in the same hands whether hereditary, self appointed, or elected, may be justly pronounced as the very definition of tyranny.”

To compound matters, Madison, wrote, “The means of defense agst. foreign danger have always been instruments of tyranny at home.” Now we the sane people are faced with a global invader coronavirus-COVID-19. With the nation facing confusion for lack of presidential saneness. Creating the stage for civil war because society holds opposing ideologies, as to how respond to this 21st. century pandemic. Giving Trump the pathway to make Madison a prophetic political genius.

Some suspect this pandemic is here to stay. No one knows how it’ll play out concerning health, national and personal economics. The same injurious consequences will play out globally.

Numerous biblical scholars suspect that COVID-19 sets the stage as the forerunner of what the Bible declares to be the beginning of sorrows. The shadow of even more horrific suffering. Giving credence to the announcement, “For there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. Unless those days are shortened all of humanity will die. And for the sake of the Christ believing community those days will end.” (cp. Matthew 24:8; 21-22).

U.S. destroyed in 1 hr

Some how, some way, Muslims in the U.S. could successfully ally themselves with foreign jihadist in any number of Muslim countries. Most likely to be Iran, to attack the U.S. by employing a 21st century weapon to pretty much guarantees victory. Known as an, EMP, or electronic magnetic pulse weapon. With such a weapon perspective enemies electronic girds are rendered useless. Meaning no electricity causing airplanes to fall from the sky and so forth.

A successful focused launched emp on the nations capital would render the nation incapable of self defense, and an inability to launch a defensive attack. A repeat of Pearl Harbor but far more deadly. So maybe that’s how, Revelation 18: 9-11; 14-19 and Luke 21: 26; Revelation 9:6, will become an American experience. Note: Ref. to great city Babylon, Rev. 18: 10, is thought to be modern day America primarily through the prophecy of Jeremiah.

Some, if not most say nonsense because America the mighty will always find a way to retaliate victoriously. But the same can be said about the Islamic world, They have been fighting for world dominance for centuries, So far, they have always suffered defeat. But they always rebound to harass the world community. Make no mistake they’re on the move again with the same aims and intentions. They don’t have the same alliances like the United States. Formulated through Nato! Which, has kept global tyrants checkmated.

But the Islamic world has ISSI. Having the ability to reek havoc within the U.S. and Nato nations from within their own boarders. Without a weapon like an EMP.

Reflect upon this reality. The U.S. has more Muslims serving in our Congress than anytime in our history. It is suspected that the Department of Defense, where at the Pentagson, it has been said, as many, as one hundred Muslims are employed. That is rather shocking considering what the Quran teaches. Evil often lies in the shadows waiting for the right moment to make their deadly strike. It’s impossible to conclude, that even the most humble, and self appearing devoted Muslim Americans don’t want their United States to become an Islamic state.

Unless change occur, our Islamic menace will grow like an incurable cancer, nationally and internationally. Unless we Christians wake up from our slumber. Coming to grips with the reality that Christendom was never meant to be a Sunday go meeting of fancy clothes in cathedrals called churches. It’s about baptism and holy communion. That notion is fully explained in yesterdays discussion, “Asking is dangerous.”

Christians need to wear the clothing of community changers and the communion of exhaustion which in the end results in what John and Mark wanted from Jesus. Available to lay out the blueprints for such a stalwart group of community changers. Guaranteed to be a lively presentation. Partly because, its about learning to act violently non-violently.

failed sustainability from the unlikely

Our world with its unraveling challenges concerning its sustainability for future generations has garnered lots of attention. But the biggest threat concerning earth, as being a place for human existence is the absence of religion in that discussion.

Because the world hangs in the balance through the complex mixtures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam as forces under God. Those religions, and not the United States, or some other world body like the United Nations will determine the worlds future. Those religions are by divine prerogative one. Instead of one in harmony for good. They became splintered and became a force for evil. Erroneously in the name of God.

And in the end, divine providence will intercede and reestablish global order under the banner God’s kingdom on this earth. During the intermittent period times will only worsen. So buckle up for a not very pleasant journey. Because, “Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the will be shaken.” Text: Luke 21: 26; “In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, but death will flee them.” Texts: Revelation 9:6.

Islam seems to be the religion most likely to determine the unpleasantness of the worlds future. All other forces will be peripheral to Islam influences. Islam, as a religion presents itself, as the most eminent threat of this century to global insecurity. Because of its quest for global dominance through strategic placed wars of terrorism.

While many countries will not be mesmerized by Islams tentacles posing a threat into their spears of global influence. It works both ways, nevertheless, alliances will be formed with that will be adverse to Israeli and American interest. With the ultimate obliteration of Israel, and the United States being the goal.

In the end it’ll be the atheistic world in conjunction with parts of the theistic western world that will become the achilles’ heel for Judaism and Christianity.

Some how, some way, the Islam’s Mahadi will arrive. And the Mahadi will restore universal justice, equity, and the true religion in accordance with Islamic law and traditions.

The once cherished, and valued mantra, for prosperity and military security globally went as, “As America goes, so goes the world.” All elements within that mantra is and has been degenerated to a state of nothingness. Making the United States carriers of the following scenario.

“The kings of the earth, who committed fornication, and lived luxuriously with her will weep, and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning. Standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, “Alas, alas, that great city America, that mighty city! For, in one hour your judgment has come.” And the merchants of the earth will weep, and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore. (verses 9-11). Verse 14, The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torments, weeping  and wailing. And saying, “Alas, alas that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches  came to nothing. Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance. And cried out when they saw the smoke burning, saying, “What is like this great city?” They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing. And saying, “Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour, she is made desolate.” Texts: Revelation 18:9-11; 14-19.

the peter principles

In order to spare the United States from pending annihilation from from God’s enemies, the Muslim world, as presented in recent discussions. A biblical plan was offered yesterday, and as said, scheduled for today will be a discussion around two eternal promises. But before America can escape its pronounced judgment for her sins. She must rid herself of an eternal plague that Peter discusses. Then in repentance, she must realign herself with Israel.

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as even as there will be false teachers among you. Who will secretly bring destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and will bring on themselves swift destruction.

And many will follow their destructive ways because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words: for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.” See 2 Peter 2:1-3.

Brief Commentary:For our era, make believe churches, who deny that Jesus Christ is God and the ultimate authority on all laws, social and cultural behaviors. This drags in politicians and issue influencers like the mass media. Opening for acceptance of an ideology that isn’t godly, like Islam. And acceptance of homosexuality, as a viable lifestyle. And now, the emergence a gender crisis. Said to cite just a few problems dooming America while many more exist.

Peter Principle #2: The curse of the ages. “For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into the chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the people of the ungodly.” See 2 Peter 2:4-5.

Peter Principle #3: Lawlessness of homosexuality. “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned to destruction, making them an example to those who would live ungodly; And delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked, for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds.” See 2 Peter 2:6-8, compare those scriptures with, Romans 1:24-32.

Peter Principle #4:Right living worked for Noah and Lot. God’s eternal promises work. The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment. But it isn’t automatic, God’s mercy needs this forerunner. “If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Texts:2 Peter 2:4-9, with 2 Chronicles 7:14.

And America through her people can join King Solomon and say, For He is good, for His mercy endures forever.” See 2 Chronicles 5:13. Because the great injustice against God has been erased, the injustice of homosexuality.

Next: America is traveling a dangerous road and is promised annihilation, as discussed in recent discussions. America must strengthen her allegiance with Israel. By not joining the chorus of nations severing their support for her. Failure to do so will only hasten the annihilation of the United States. Along with all other nation states, who march lock stepped to such a  cadence.

This padre long ago realized the modern day church offers very few solutions. For the most part, the church is the problem, and confirmed, by dwindling membership. Churchman when, confronted with that reality respond, and say its a sign of the times. Correct, but however, they are that sign.

days beyond imagination

Wonder if what Daniel dreamt, so startled him that he awakened in a sweat. Concluding that he just had a nightmare. If so, for Daniel it was just a harmless vision during the night. But for a generation of people centuries later, it wouldn’t be harmless. It’s about Daniel 7:7.

After experiencing his nightmare, Daniel found himself considering the horns. Shocked again, this time while awake, while staring, he saw a little horn coming up from among the ten. And in that process three of ten horns were obliterated. Talk about strangeness, get this. Daniel writes, behold! This horn had eyes like a man and from his mouth he spoke great things.

From the living breathing word of God which had no beginning because God always existed. Comes a science referred to as occurrences for the future. And wrapped up in those mysterious happenings divine inspiration allows select mortals to unravel their mysteries. And from that we know that horns represents future governments.

Daniel profiles a leader of one of those governments. But first the end comes first because it dramatizes truth from fiction and demonstrates the effect of providence of divine enlightenment. Gabriel said, “And the vision of the evenings and mornings which was told is true; therefore seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future,” Daniel 8:16;26.

How many days in the future? Maybe within hours or centuries because this is what is said about that time. “A thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it is past, and like a watch in the night.” See Psalms 90:4.

Head spinning, in amazement, no doubt, Daniel records this, “I Daniel, fainted and was sick for days; afterward I rose and went about the king’s business. I was astonished by the vision, but no one understood it,” Daniel 8:27.

Now to time travel backwards with Daniel to meet this little horn with fierce features and a menacing mouth. Then giving us the cogitative awareness to reverse our backward motion to the future.

A helping hand is a welcome hand for the troubled; especially for Daniel in the midst of his confusion. In this instance it’s the angel Gabriel. With instructions from the Ancient of Days to set the stage for world horror. And so Gabriel unloads, the worlds arsenal of terrorized horror. Saying, “In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness. A king shall arise having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; he shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. Through his cunning, he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule. And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human means,” Daniel 8:16;23-25.

Our world in an approaching tomorrow from verses 23-25. Our world from a disappointing yesterday.

Man’s transgressions against God will have reached there limits.

A world leader will have unified governments into a one world body.

It’s governance will be brutal and there will be no such thing as noncompliance.

The most fierce and brutal ruler ever known. His authority and power is of a supernatural origin.

He will move across the globe creating never before fear among the nations. Gaining great riches and delighting in one conquest after another.

The once thought invincible nations like the U.S. will fall. He will remake the holocaust.

His success comes cunning ability to deceive.

Pride will capture his whole being after surveying his his accomplishments. Having done successfully the unthinkable.

And so why not destroy the Prince of princes, and show the world who really is God.

And that to the believers delight is his fatal mistake.

The dark side of the supernatural

A terrible panorama beings with Revelation 4:1, … “Come up here John! and I will show you things which must be hereafter.”

Moving quickly, we discover a great dragon, the “one who deceives the whole world” was expelled from heaven. His angels accompanied him. We know from that that they were dispatched to our world with great anger. (Scriptural texts:Revelation 12:9;12).

Just think of all the time people spend trying to sort out world affairs. With one short verse the causes of troubling world affairs is made understandable. Everything has a beginning, so when did “the great dragons” explosion and earths woes begin. We don’t know for sure. But most likely, right after God had finished with his six day creation and rested on the seventh day. From that event, the world became engaged in a deadly war. A war that few know much about. And many with some familiarity with this war, do not understand the significance of this conflict. Because it really intensified with the birth of Christ, with that great dragon being fully aware that he had met his most formidable foe.

The birth and death of Jesus was God’s answer to that rebellion in heaven. Now we are engaged in a war with “that great dragon against our Lord and his people. It means that the cause of Christ and his people can best defended themselves by good preparation. Which requires the necessity of knowing something strategically valuable about that great dragon. And by all means, avoid taking ones enemy for granted.

So here we discover that Satan who is that great deceiver has a core of fallen angels (demons) here with him. And just what is it that this band of fallen angels have in mind for us, where you and I live?

Most likely, as the great deceiver with his group of loyalist. Cunning deception which will manifest itself in confusion. Showing itself in the manifestation of doubt. Forging a convincing ideology of not being able to distinguish between the believable and unbelievable.

With the great dragon and its cohorts focusing their attention upon the church as the primary agent of unbelievability. They have succeeded magnificently.

When the “great dragon” discovered that its forced residency was upon the earth. He immediately began persecuting the woman (Mary) who gave birth to the male child, Revelation 12:13. This was foretold in Matthew 24:9, “Then shall they deliver you (Jesus) and (and then his church) up to be afflicted, and they shall kill you; and you shall be hated of all nations for my name sake.” Verse 8, “All these things shall be the beginning of sorrows.”

Neither this padre nor any other believer should think that we are important to the great dragon and its fallen band of angels. In their conquest to persecute the child, we are Not! Christ lives beyond his resurrection through his church. This is a conquest of destruction that must be obliterated in order for the great dragon and its followers to succeed. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come,” Matthew 24:14. Of course the persecution will never succeed. Because Christ will always have followers, who will announce the necessity of repentance. Along with acceptance of Christ, as the Father’s sacrificial lamb for our sins. Which is our rich Christian heritage, through out the centuries. “And, they over came him by the blood of the Lamb, and by their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death,” Revelation 12:11.

Because the persecuted woman is the witnessing church, along with her offspring through the centuries. This connection is derived from the expression of Revelation 12:13. “… and when the dragon saw that he was cast into the earth. He persecuted the woman…” Also note, …”Woe unto the inhabitants of the earth…,” verse12. Then note verse 14, And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness. Into her place where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half of a time, from the face of the serpent. Referred to as the “Abomination of Desolation,” Matthew 24:15, or the “great tribulation” of verse 21, the most horrific experiences of humanity never to be matched. In verse 14, we see the synergy of symbolism coming into play. The synergy of Exodus 19:4, “You have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bore you on “eagles wings” AND BROUGHT YOU UNTO MYSELF.” “As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young. Spreading broad her wings taking them upon her wings,” Deuteronomy 32:11. Rejoice God will provide and protect!

Hopefully, fellow believers in Christ have learned something of strategic importance concerning the enemy of humanity and the church of Jesus Christ. Allowing for proper spiritual preparation. An enemy to be feared and never taken for granted. Because deception is his primary trademark for weakening the faith of believers which is the only way the great dragon and his fallen angelic cast can penetrate the church.

In that I have written some about this, you now know why the churches are chastised a number of times in Revelation chapters two and three. And more importantly, why the church is called into action. Recall the counsel and the gold with soothing ointment for healing of Revelation 3:18. Followed by the very serious exhortation, “As many as I love, I rebuke and correct. Be zealous, and therefore repent,” verse 19.

Many details remain to be filled in between the lines of this discussion. Open the Living Word study it, master it, and then announce its message throughout your church. Reach out to your community through its various suitable locations. How about in front of a Muslim mosque where evil congregates in mass. Do it peacefully and perhaps silently. Wearing billboards and carrying signs announcing scriptures of repentance, deliverance, peace and love. Our forefathers gave us a precious jewel which is freedom of assembly and expression. This padre is available to help organize such events. Found through the Contact Us link on my Home page.

“He who testifies of these things says, surely, I come quickly, Amen. Even so come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen,” Revelation 22:20-21.

b careful what you wish 4 cas it might hurt

Now Abram has that long desired male heir in Ishmael. Thinking that his vast empire was now securely preserved. It was, but not as Abram envisioned.

Name changes for Abram and Sarai to Abraham and Sarah perhaps signaling new beginnings or sorrowful endings. In the end, we’ll see that its a combination of both.

We find Abraham being quite content with the way things were. So lets eavesdrop on conversations that hurt Abraham, you, me, and the worlds community of people to this very day. Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael may live before You! And God replied, “As for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.” See Genesis 17:18-20. Those twelve princes would become nations, who all pledge allegiance to Ishmael through Allah and Muhammad his prophet.

It’s pure ignorance for President Trump, and his surrogates to think that they’ll destroy ISSI. Yes, they might defeat the acronym. But another acronym will appear to torture the Trumps of the world. Islamic terror is a global phenomena that is here to stay. And to make things worse, for the Trumps of the world it’ll intensify.

The only remedy is for nations that have links to our Judeo Christian roots. Those nations, who have roots to Great Britain, and her Commonwealth of Nations. Through Isaac, to Joseph, to Ephraim the father of Great Britain. And including the United States, whose birthright is hedged through Manasseh, Joseph’s oldest son. And who is the unifying factor, other than God Himself. None other than one of the smallest nations in the world. With military apparatuses kept secret, but able to keep in tact what God preordained. The nation state of Israel!

Now the hard work. Muslims must be encouraged to exit all the above countries. Muslim military fortresses, called Mosques must be eliminated. Governments must create laws in order to expedite the aforementioned. It’ll not happen, unless Christians unite, and persuade the government to honor what God has provided for our Judeo Christian communities. But it’s problematic because most of Christendom is in a state of apostasy. If it is to happen, it’ll take a major global revival among nations with a heritage of our Judeo Christian values.

The battle lines have been established by the aforementioned paragraph and what is to follow.

The Muslim mind set is in complete opposition to everything that is Jewish and Christian. They are determined to be the people of promise. The scriptures teach that they are the people of the flesh. Note: Therefore she (Sarah) said to Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman (Hagar) and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.” And the matter was very displeasing in Abraham’s sight because of his son. But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.” See Genesis 21:10-12; Galatians 4:22-31.

So don’t expect Muslims to acquiesce because they will not. It’ll be a fight to the death of one ideology or the other or maybe both.

It all happened because of Abraham’s ill fated romp in the sack with Hagar, the mother of Ishmael and the father of Islam. He wished for an heir, and he got what he wished for. But it surely hurt with that hurt reaching us today.

betrayal hurts

Nestled in parts of what is recognized as Turkey today. Was an assembly of Jews, who had fled Jerusalem because of a Jew hating prosecutor. Who was determined to put to silence by death, if necessary the shenanigans by those messengers of Jesus.

This Jewish assembly or synagogue of Ephesus and the other six discussed in chapters two and three from the book of Revelation. Were Jewish believers in Christ. As such they were what John labeled in the first chapter as Lampstands. In the midst of those Lampsatnds was one like the Son of Man. See Revelation 1:13.

The message that’s going to be shared with that synagogue is fitting for Christ followers whether Jew or Gentile today. To the angel of the church at Ephesus know this. These things says, “He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, walks in the midst of the seven golden Lampstands. I know your works, your labor, your patience that you cannot bear those who are evil. And have tested those, who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars. And you have persevered, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary.” See Revelation 2:1-3.

By way of exegeses here are points of clarification making the Christ devotee durable enough to persevere in the strenuous labors one faces in His service. Works requiring patience in exposing the evils of the times. And discovering that those, who claim to be with you, are at cross purposes with you. Such a discovery can be both exhausting and defeating.

Apart from labeling them as liars, we don’t know what made them liars. Did such a declaration embody only people within that Jewish synagogue? The expression of apostles would suggest that the betrayers were those within their assembly. However if, apostle was a generic expression then liars could come from multiple antagonists. Representing Jews or Gentiles out side of that Jewish assembly, who pledged support for their community labors? It really doesn’t matter apart from discovering that a suspected friendship of alliance of purpose was one of betrayal.

Perhaps that’s what caused their demise in the sight of the one, who appeared among the as the Son of Man. Holding seven stars in His right hand.

a warriors portfolio

Yesterday, we took an unusual journey discussing the unusual with how to make it the usual. With out being a skilled anybody. Just by being the ordinary you. We can defy the most significant advancements of intelligentsia with a simple easy to understand and useful formula.

The stakes are high because the American way of life is at risk. Taking it a step further without immediate change America will be obliterated from the world scene. Whether apostate Christendom, the government, Wall Street or the combined community of intelligentsia disagrees. It doesn’t matter. What matters is you. Yesterdays discussion concerning the nonfunctional ability of the human senses as conduits for change or healing is apropos.

Jesus is the one John saw among His churches as lampstands. Holding in His right seven stars. Which are angels associated with His churches, you and me. See Revelation 1:12; 20.

Christ presented Himself as a warrior through John, who was given this portrait to paint. Painting a picture of His churches, you and me. So John begins his sketching, by developing an image of one in the midst of a group of lampstands. Stroking the figure of someone was like the Son of Man. Clothed with a garment down to His feet, and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head, and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; He had in His right hand seven stars, and out of His mouth went a sharp two edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shinning in its strength. See Revelation 1:13-16.

The canvas is painted and conjures this picture. Yes! An unexpected picture of a warrior. A Christ, who is of royalty and sovereignty symbolized by His attire. It’s a worthwhile study to be able to associate the names of God with His character. Because it’s how we get to know Him in His sovereign majesty. In Genesis 1:1, as Elohim, His supremacy is established which reads, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” We know that Jesus is God because He said, “The Father and I are one. See John 10:30. Therefore, Jesus has the legal right to insist that the worlds people conform their behaviors according to His directives.

Also seen picturesquely is the majestic character of Christ with His perfect resilience against all challenges and challengers. He is our Commander in Chief and offers defenses that can’t be penetrated. Again, yesterdays discussion is apropos here.

We are His lampstands. Humans, not concrete and stained glass edifices called churches. Which are usually used for empire building, and not light to show the way to Christ and His tenets. If it were otherwise America would be very different from the America we know today.

One discussion builds upon another, so visit us tomorrow, and see if America has a future.

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.

have u noticed

Have you ever heard it said, “Nice doesn’t work?” Nice does work sometimes in matters of general etiquette but its fast slipping away. Unfortunately today nice results in being taken advantage. And, even worse being seen as weak. Buckle up because its only going to get worse the deeper we plough into the 21st century.

Why is that occurring, when life is better through politeness. It’s one of the signs that age we live in is going to be exited for a worse one. “Know this that in the last days perilous days will come.” See 2 Timothy 3:1. Check this out, “For people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, …, unthankful, …, …, unforgiving, …, slanders, without self control, brutal, despisers of good, …, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God.” See 2 Timothy 3:2-4.

Best advice, “Having a form of godliness, but denying its power, and from such people turn away! See 2 Timothy 3:5.

the unable machine

The world has become a very dangerous place to be apart of. People are killing each other based upon looks, color, gender, ethnicity, ideology and religion. Age doesn’t matter anymore either, as the young, and the old have become acceptable targets.

Governments within the community of nations have surrendered themselves to a new reality. Declaring that harm, and death is the new normal. Then encouraging the citizenry to be brave by not allowing proponents of terrorism to alter their lifestyles. To do otherwise, they say, is an act of forfeiture to those, who want to harm and kill. Don’t know about you, but neither scenario is acceptable.

And all this harm, and death seems to revolve around how some define God. Some define God as loving, merciful, judgmental, all knowing, ever present and above all powerful. But such attributes can be called into question, just by the absurdity of the human condition.

Why would a loving, merciful, judgmental Creator, who knows everything, is ever present and with retaliatory capabilities allow such mockery? Especially as this God looks around the world, and knows that the slaughter of people, and often very innocent people. In the name of someones God. The question must be asked, why? Taken in the context of God, who knows everything and is everywhere at the same time.

Does God only act with the consent of His council? Sort of like a democracy. Now that rubs the majority of Christendom the wrong way. They have mapped out world history from creation, to the garden of Eden experience, through to the birth of Jesus. To His cruel murder, resurrection and ascension to heaven. Continuing with His eventual return to establish His kingdom on this very earth. With all the judgments in between and after the brief chronology of these events.

So lets take a look at the possibility of God governing by council consensus. “God stands in the congregation of the mighty. He judges among the gods. How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked?” See Psalms 82:1-2.

If you see the oppression of the poor, and the violent perversion of justice and righteousness in a province, do not marvel at the matter; for high official watches over high official, and higher officials  are over them. Ecclesiastes 5:8.

Then Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne. And all the host of heaven standing by on His right and on His left.” See 1 Kings 22:19.

undersatanding the paris france fiasco

Allah is our objective. The prophet Muhammad is our leader. The Qur’an is our law, Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.

Perhaps that was the prayer Muslim, Karim Cheurfi. And all those Islamic liberators that preceded him, and the many jihadists that will follow him.

Solution: Exit Muslims to the wastelands of their ancestors. Close their military fortresses called mosques.

No safety when among a Muslim. You never know when it might your turn to be greeted by Muslim hate.
