uniqueness of the unexpected

“When you see the Abomination of Devastation spoken by Daniel the historian, Daniel,” said Jesus, ‘standing in the place,'” Matthew 24:15. Run for cover! (cp. Matthew 24:16-20). Think you have seen troublesome days? You have seen nothing, compared to what you going to experience, said Jesus. (cp. Matthew 24:21-28). And all my Chinese, and Middle Eastern readers laughed.

So why not send me one of your comments about what you’ve read recently. Some think materialism or communism will rescue the world.

Still others think that it’ll be Allah. Truth be told, both the Chinese, and the Muslim world will play a significant role in world madness of the aforementioned.

But they are only clutter along the way, serious clutter, but nevertheless clutter.

The bear of the North will have an equal challenger. With it being the Chinese and the Arab Muslims world. Who might form an alliance, as they move collectively to forever to destroy Israel. With the grand prize being control of Jerusalem.

However there is another empire deep into the South, who will move North with the same goal.

All this will scare the heebie-bejeebies out of Israel. And the unsuspecting us’ of this world. Israel will make a covenant  with a rather unknown, but emerging global player. Not recognized as such by today’s world, but divinely recognized by the world of the supernatural.

So here we go from the one caught in the middle of all this chaos, the one who inspired Daniel to set events in perspective, God Almighty.

By this time global wars like never seen before are sure to annihilate all of humanity. Remember the powers want the Jews dead, and control of Jerusalem.

Then seemingly out of nowhere arrives magic. “A seven year peace treaty is agreed upon by all the warring parties. But three years into the treaty, the originator of the treaty violates an integral segment of it Bring an end to Jewish religious customs, as agreed upon. So said the angel Gabriel to Daniel. (cp. Daniel 9:27).

What does an angel know about this kind of stuff? Nothing unless, Gabriel was responding to a superior authority. Which he was, and said so, “O Daniel, I have now come froth to give skill to understand.

At the beginning of your prayers the command went out, and I have come to tell you that you, for you are greatly loved; therefore consider the matter and understand the vision,” (cp. Daniel 8:16-17). And the speed of Angels, Ezekiel 1:14, and whom they serve. (cp. Psalms 103:20; Daniel 9:22-23).

Gabriel had, and has a special relationship with God. When God has an important message for a specific person, He sends Gabriel to deliver that message. As was the case concerning Mary, who would give birth to Jesus. Read carefully Gabriel’s gentleness with Mary. And the trust Mary had in Gabriel.

It would also appear that God did more than just send Gabriel. Gabriel had been fully briefed concerning all the circumstances concerning her. And that of a relative of hers, Luke 1:36-37.

So that Gabriel was able to be a source of comfort and strength to Mary. Note Mary’s final expression, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be according to your word,” verse 38.  And, Gabriel departed from her. (cp. Luke 26-38.

This writer angelic experiences date back to his infancy. My last profound experience occurred 2020.

While in horrific need, after being unexpectedly assaulted. I heard a voice say, “He needs help,” I looked, and there stood a giant! An extended huge hand was offered. Grasping the angels hand. I was air lifted to safety. And in like manner, as the angel arrived, so was the angels departure.

This Padre acknowledges that when we have our glorified bodies. We also will be able to travel by thought. Able to pierce solid objects as was Jesus, as He visited His disciples. Who feared for their lives, and were in hiding after Jesus was brutally tortured and murdered.

Here’s an interesting scripture to think about. “Are they not all ministering spirits; sent forth to minister to those, who will inherit salvation.” (cp. Hebrews 1:14).

a Man 4 all seasons

There he was the most hated man in the Middle East. Sitting alone on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

When his friends approached Him and asked? We know from your teachings that this historical era will end, can you share with us some signs as indicators for that time? (cp. Matthew 24:3).

So He sent them a shocker, that no doubt went way beyond their comprehension. He answered, “When you see the abomination of devastation, spoken by one of my associates, Daniel.

Who stood in this very  holy place a long time ago. That will signal my return to this earth, after my departure. And that will signal the end of this age, centuries after your deaths. (cp. Matthew 24:15).

So lets see what Daniel had to say about this matter. In the first year of Darius …, who was made king over the Chaldean’s. In the first year of his reign, I, Daniel understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the LORD through Jeremiah the prophet that He would accomplish seventy years in the devastation of Jerusalem. (cp. Daniel 9:1-2).

Apparently, Daniel had discovered these words. “Then it shall come to pass, when seventy years are completed that I will punish the King of Babylon, and the nation, and the lands of the Chaldean’s for their sins,” says the LORD, and I will make it a perpetual devastation.” (cp. Jeremiah 25:12-13).

To go along with all of what’s been said. Daniel may also have discovered the writings of another historian, Ezra. Who recorded the King’s history, and then make a proclamations freeing the Jews. Who had been held in captivity by King Nebuchadnezzar for seventy years

And so it was, King Cyrus of Persia, the King; who destroyed the once most powerful ruler of the known world, the Babylon empire. Issuing this historic proclamation recorded in Ezra 1:1-3, “The Jews are free to return to Jerusalem.” And with many perks provided by the Persian people! (cp. Ezra 1:4).

What Daniel learned drove him to pray for mercy. He set the tone for making wrong right. By recognizing sin for what it is, a curse. Then acknowledging that righteousness belongs to God, and to all mortals, shame of face. (cp. Daniel 9:3-19).

Then the man Gabriel said Daniel, “… whom I had seen in the vision flying swiftly, and reaching me about the time of the evening offering.” Swiftly defined like as a flash of lightening, Ezekiel 1:14.

Saying, “O Daniel, I have come here to give you the ability to understand. … your prayers have been heard!

The command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly loved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision. The vision refers to the time of the end.” (cp. Daniel 8:15-17; Daniel 9:20-23.

Gabriel provided Daniel with content that might have baffled him. He starts out by saying seventy weeks are determined for your people, and for your holy city to finish the transgressions.

Which, was necessary as punishment for sin. Resulting in reconciliation between you, your people and Me because of everyone’s sins. (cp. Daniel 9:24-25).

The seventy weeks are complex and difficult to understand. Some have speculated that the weeks are weeks of years. Equally 490 years.

I am not going to delve into that debate other than to say. It’s a prophecy given to Daniel involving the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Note the phrase. “To finish transgressions, to make an end to sins.” Resulting in reconciliation between God and all of humanity, excluding no one.

Which answers the question presented to Jesus. What will be a sign of your coming and the end of the age. Two thousands years have passed and the end hasn’t occurred. It may be millennium’s away, or it could happen before the sun sets today.

Gabriel took the world community through some uncharted prophetic times. Gabriel did that through his conversation with Daniel 9:24-25.

However, there is still a most consequential period of history to be experienced. Before that aforementioned simple question, experiences its complete answer. It’ll be through a pathogenic bacteria; that strikes rendering the notion of any God, as irrelevant to human consciousness.

The journey continues tomorrow.

Another step closer. Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to the sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abomination shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consumption which is determined, is poured out on the desolate. (cp. Daniel 9:27).

unusual encounters

The ways of Elijah’s ravens are best understood from yesterdays discussion because of their mysterious wonderment. Could they have been angel’s or God Himself?

We learned that birds when directed serve the interests of their Creator, like all of us do. We know that these Ravens were more than just ordinary birds. Because they were able to receive directives, think and react, and then obey them.

And astonishing, they knew Elijah, and knew where to find him. And could it be in light of, 1 Kings 19:5-10, that it’s possible that the Ravens from the previous discussion were also angels?

Making the subject matter very interesting, as to whether or not such mystical phenomenal’s occur today?

I have good reason to think it occurs. Because I have experienced them myself, and I suspect, so have others. Interested in discussing, and sharing such occurrences among ourselves?

This much is shared because of this Padre’s fascination. Because as a toddler, this Padre had an angelic encounter through the personage of a woman. Who told me that I was to become a priest.

For decades, she would appear looking after me. Especially after a demon murdered my mother. I knew it, nobody else did, and I wasn’t talking, or they would have had me committed to an insane asylum.

Because upon refection; that’s what they did to my mother, because of her experiences with the unseen world. Some of us are fortunate to know that unseen worlds exists, and wonder about there missions and purposes. And ask, why me?

Being called to be a priest, and being a priest are vastly different. The latter requires the birthing experience Romans 10:9-10 and 1 Corinthians 5:17.

Then the theological torture of a theological education. Separating the grandeur of denominational creeds from biblical truths. No easy task. Taken aside by a dean of theology, who also was one of the revisionist of the King James Bible. Who scribbled to me a note declaring, “Your not college material.

But good enough to have written a major paper, which an esteemed professor took, and plagiarized into one of his books. Young and innocent or innocent and young who knows? Mostly they are one and the same. Eventually the fortunate, like me, are able to discard both.

The demon who killed my mother was determined to destroy me. And it almost did, as I was well on my way, as a willing participants, in one of the deepest abysses of darkness imaginable.

When unexpectedly, and not seeking deliverance, I was delivered. The presences of a being suddenly appeared to my right and above me. Causing me to fall to my knees. Nothing was said, at best it seemed more like mind to mind communication. Then the   unexplainable occurred. I confessed my sins, and much latter discovered that my prayer was patterned after Romans 10:9-10. Previously, I was completely unaware of those verses.

Upon rising the next morning, I knew something was very different about me. In an unfavorable environment and without a Bible the occurrence remained a mystery.

Eventually obtaining a Bible, and approximately eighteen months later, 2 Corinthians 5:17, was discovered, and my mystery was solved. More than a half century later, this Padre still says, ‘thank you Jesus!’

Having escaped death three times, because of Jesus, I can sing, “O death, where is your sting? O Hades where is your victory?” (cp. 1 Corinthians 15:55).

Having an awareness of generational cycles of life. Eagerly this Padre launches a deeper penetration into the world of the mostly unseen let alone the experienced.

Having said all of that, lets see where we find Elijah? Of all places, he’s sleeping under a tree. When he was touched by an angel, who spoke to him, 1 Kings 19:7. And in verse 7, we discover that it had happened a second time. During those times he ate and drank, this Padre suspects Elijah consumed supernaturally charged food.

Because he was about to undertake what was beyond ones physical ability. Which was a 40 day journey to the mountain of God.

Only to be asked, by the LORD Himself, when he got there, what are you doing here? And he answered, “I’m zealous for you. The people are turning from your ways. Destroying everything that represents you, and what you expect from them. Going as far as to kill those who defend you, and only I remain.

Sounds pretty much like the trail America is blazing. With one exception clergy aren’t being publicly executed for standing for biblical truths, yet.

For tomorrow, ancient lessons for a modern world, as the supernatural strikes.

unimaginable stuff

History is a good teacher. And history is God! Those who refuse to learn from Him are doomed to repeat His courses again and again. In the process that’s how the world gets uglier and uglier.

On the other hand those who pass His tests, reap His rewards. And that’s how prosperity moves forward. And the entire world can enjoy His bountiful provisions.

Obviously, those who have learned are a shrinking minority, while those who haven’t are turning their lives, and our world into a wasteland.

At it again! The word of the LORD  to him (Elijah). Get away from here! And it shall be that you shall drink from the brook, And I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.

So he went, and did according to the word of the LORD. “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today,” Hebrews 13:8. Meaning get out of where you are, if necessary, and live your life according to the word of the LORD in that same environment.

Be like Elijah, who went into the cave, and spent the night in that place. And behold! The word of the LORD came to him, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?”

Responding, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; for the for the children of Israel have forsaken your covenant, torn down your alters, and have killed your prophets with the sword. I only am left; and they seek to take my life,” 1 Kings 19:9-10).

Continue reading, 1 Kings 19, and while reading carefully determine what the word of the Lord would have you do?

Some will say, that’s Old Testament stuff. Think again! The Word of the LORD is none other than Jesus Christ. We learn that from Revelation 19:13. There we find this everlasting historical truth. And He was clothed with a vesture  (body) dipped in blood; and His name was called the Word of God.

The centuries have changed, but God’s applications have not. One of which is to seek the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (cp, Matthew 6:33).

Which means you’ll have the basic staples for survival, for as long as He needs you hear, at the very least, and maybe a whole lot more.

To comprehend and experience that, everyone must think beyond material substances. The folly of most.

Here’s how it played out for Elijah. The Ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. And it happened that while there the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land. (cp. 1 Kings 17:2-7).

He had learned histories lessons, and life’s necessities were his. While others, who had failed to learn His lessons went without. Which always creates an ugly environment, when winner takes all.

Jesus isn’t Santa, as some think, not in October, and certainly not in December. So learn this, Jesus has a long memory and bounties are showered upon those who bring forth fruits worthy of repentance. (cp. Matthew 3:8). But sometimes at a great price; even death, as ones water brook may turn dry.

Know your scriptures; know your riches in there rightful priority.

Best way to experience Elijah type fulfillment is to ask, what can I do for Jesus, and not what can Jesus do for me. He’s already done enough. Having His body bloodied through a cruel murderous torturous death by Roman crucifixion! (cp. 1 Peter 1:20; Revelation 13:8).

unseen worlds within ours

“It is argued that humans only believe in things that are sure to exist, things we’ve seen or touched. In reality there are many things out their that remain unknown to us yet, but that doesn’t make them less real,” Immanuel Kant.

When’s the last time you saw Satan” If the response is never, does that me mean his presences upon the earth has never occurred? According to the Bible he’s been here and always up to no good.

Now there was a day, when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came among them. And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the LORD and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and walking back and forth on it.” (cp. Job 1:6-7).

Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? There is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil.”

So Satan answered the LORD and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.

But now stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and He will surely curse you to your face!”

And the LORD said to Satan, “Behold all that he has is in your power. Do not lay a hand on his person.” So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.” (cp. Job 1:8-12).

Most likely many of us have been subjected to Job like experiences. Perhaps nation states have also been subjected to such dialogue between Satan and God. Could this COVID-!9 pandemic be a condoned challenge by Satan, and allowed by God to see how humanity would respond? Cursing or praising their God.

Worlds within worlds all designed to prove Satan wrong. Because the truly redeemed in Christ will be protected from such blasphemy. Because, it is written, They who overcomes such evil assaults victoriously, are those who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. (cp. 1 John 5:5).

moving from one place to another by thought

During tumultuous times like these most are looking for an anchor. Something that provides hope for the future no matters how grim that future might look.

For me there are different anchors depending on the situation. Lately I’ve been dwelling on this particular group of scriptures.

“Do you not know that as many of us were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death.

Therefore, we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so, we also should walk in the newness of life.

For if, we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be in the likeness of His resurrection.

Knowing this that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.

For they, who have died are free from sin!

Now if we died with Christ, we believe we shall also live with Him.

Knowing that Christ having been raised from the dead dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.

For the death that He died, He died to sin for all, but the life He lives He lives to God.” (cp. Romans 6:3-10).

For the people, who have been redeemed by the shed blood of Jesus. We look like those, who have elected to remain unredeemed. But that’s just a shell of who we really are. We are like the resurrected Christ, and like Him, we will some day have a resurrected body like His. That will never again know tumultuous days of any kind.

Here’s glimpse of that body. It will be a body for lack of a better expression. That can travel by thought. A new day had dawned Jesus had risen from the dead. Jesus was eating with His disciples. When suddenly, He vanished from their sight. (cp. Luke 24:30-31) The saga goes this way. “…., saying the Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Peter! Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, Peace to you.” But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed that they had seen a ghost. (cp. Luke 24:36-39).

Why were they terrified because Jesus had to magically disappeared. Then frightened because Jesus had not been seen approaching them from a distance. As far as they knew he was nowhere near them. The suddenly, as out of no where, He appeared among them. Jesus arrived unexpectedly among them by thought travel. That is our future and more!

genius of God is dying

World history for earthlings is mainly about the glorification of ones self. And the degradation of everything sacred to our creator. Not all concur, so growing hostilities exist through out the world against the forces that condemn such conquests. From which side of the fence are you taking your stance?

Because by divine providence the world was meant to be ordered by the principles of Judaism and Christianity. While many scriptures could be cited to support the aforementioned, for now, these scripture will suffice. With God talking to Abraham, “And I will bless them that bless you, and curse them that curse you; and in you shall all the families of earth be blessed,” Genesis 12:3. Our Christian lineage was given birth through Judaism. With Jesus saying, “I Jesus have sent My angel to testify these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” See Revelation 22:16. How was it to be accomplished? This way, “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those on the earth. To every nation, people and tongue.” See Revelation 14:6.

Therefore Jews, and Christians must strengthen our bonds. Because as the time winds down to that “terrible day of the Lord,” the worlds anger will be focused against both Jews and Christians through out the community of nations. With the obliteration of Israel and the United States. The imagery is clearly visible. Can anyone interpret what is being said? A few maybe! Because, if the imagery was understood, a hoot and a howl would be heard through out the land.

Here are some thoughts to consider about biblical and world affairs. Concerning the news makers of world affairs, usually governments. The Old Testament writer Isaiah taught the following. “Behold! the nations are like a drop in a bucket, and are counted as the small dust on the scales… All nations before him are as nothing; they are counted to him as less than nothing, and vanity. To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare unto him?” Isaiah 40:15,17-18.

It is easy to see that world affairs produced by the community of nations just is not important to God. Because, they are antagonistic to the purposes of God. And as such, they are the enemies of God. Which should make them, the enemies of the body of believers in Christ. Ephesians sums up their antagonism properly when Paul wrote. “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against governments, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age. Against spiritual wickedness in high places” See Ephesians 6:12.

Seen through the United States as it becoming more antagonistic to the interest of our Jewish-Christian bond. What tones down their antagonisms are the believers in Christ, who support and represent the causes of God. Christians must make sure America maintains a government that can be trusted to preserve our Judeo-Christian culture. The determination of believers in Christ to preserve that culture is a urgent need. Because the likes of Beto O’Rourke are a growing threat to our Judeo-Christian values. Will’ll have to fight with greater determination to protect our heritage from total degradation, if O’Rourke, or another candidate like him captures the office of the presidency in 2020. Which will result in even greater prejudice against the people, who care about the nations roots through our Judeo-Christian traditions. That has been the growing trend of this once great nation. A nation whose state of affairs were governed by Judeo-Christian ethics is heading towards an absolute state of apostasy. This should disturb the body of believers and make Christians fighting mad. Mad enough to fight and guarantee the supremacy of Christ as the governing model for the nation.

From experience, it is necessary to dispel any notions. That references to our Judeo-Christian ethics. Some how equates to making Christianity the official religion of the United States. That would be in direct conflict with Isaiah’s prophecy. Part of the genius of America, is our separation between church and state.

What is needed is for the body of believers in Christ to keep the government in check with our Judea-Christian heritage. That is the urgent need at the moment. For this nation, at this critical juncture in our history.

Even more to the point, is that our Judea-Christian heritage is becoming more threatened by another force of spiritual darkness. Represented by the growing presences of Muslims through out our nation. An unprecedented threat to the free practice of Judaism, Christianity and democracy itself.

Our governing law through our Bill of Rights guarantees the separation of religion and state. But it also guarantees the free exercise of the nations heritage. Forbidding congress from legislating laws to limit the free exercise of our Judeo-Christian heritage. Because our forefathers, designed a system of government around that heritage. That systematically excludes the practice of Islam as a religion in the United States. Meaning congress can and should pass laws forbidding the practice of Islam in this nation. If that is to happen, than Christians need to press congress to legislate such laws. The free practice of the nations Judea-Christian heritage which is both spiritual while at the same time secular. That is another part of the genius of God through American democracy. Which Muslims will destroy if not sternly contained. Because its the Muslim modus operandi, through their devotion to Islam.

In the meantime the body of believers in Christ need to create a mercenary security force to protect our churches and Christian institutions. This is necessary because evil knows it must destroy the good embodied through the Church of Jesus Christ. If it is to prevail, in its conquest against the good.

Failure to do so will someday see American communities held hostage to suicide bombers. Just like what is happening elsewhere through out the world community. Here in the states their numbers are not great enough to launch such attacks. It is like what is said about hurricanes which strike hurricane prone localities. It is not a matter of if, but rather when. So it is, with Muslims as your neighbors.

Those who can’t see it are blind. Islam is determined to conquer the world, including the United States. Because Islam, and not the United States, or some other world body like the United Nations will determine the worlds future. Islam is the most eminent threat of the 21 century to global economic security and impacting the United States, now. In addition, the practitioners of Islam are responsible for the current global insecurity which will grow like an incurable cancer. Eventually, causing the death of Abraham’s root, the off spring of David, the worlds bright and morning star, Jesus Christ. Therefore, the United States, through our bright and morning star better wake up and save itself from this global menace.

A day 4 trickery or is it

Previous discussions, 30 August 2019 and 31 August 2019,  raised some questions. Because, this discussion is designed to do the same. This padre will take you on journeys that many others will not for reasons known only to them. Agreement is never sought because that’s a matter to be settled between you and your God.

In one of those discussions, I discussed some supernatural experiences of others. Including that of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, former President of the, Islamic Republic of Iran. Could there be any validity to his acclaimed testimony? Read on and find out. After, you have read the August discussions.

Many people have very little interest in national or world affairs. Especially, if those affairs are of a religious nature. Despite that much of the news every day centers around some aspect of religion.

The never ending turmoil between Islamic sects throughout the Arab/Muslim. Gives false hopes that world has little to fear, when it comes to being annihilated by Muslims. Then the world has Iran, an Islamic state. A nation of Shiite Muslims making life miserable for Israel. It will continue and intensify. And neither Israel, nor the United States will prohibit Iran from being a nuclear power, if Iran has decided to become such a power. And that decision may not be necessary because Iran believes that they are destined divinely to bring Islamic rule upon the world. It’s not just Iran that believes that to be true. It’s a belief shared by the Muslim world. It’s just that Iran, as a sovereign state is more vocal about it. They’ll do it collectively though they will lack harmony but not as individual states fighting to divide the world between themselves. A paradigm learned from the three previous world empires and exposed by the prophet Daniel.

Of course, the world has Syria another influential player supporting Sunni Muslims in the region. A thorn in the side of Iran. The Syrian civil war seems to have eased the Iranian pain from that torn. With Syria perhaps falling under the prophetic announcement of Isaiah 17:1, which reads, “Behold Damascus will cease to be a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.

Then there is Saudi Arabia, a Muslim state. Ruled by the third Muslim sect Wahhabism. Attempting to be a peacemaker for the region. Offering Israel peace in return for captured lands during the 1967 war several times. Which includes allowing East Jerusalem to be the capital city, for a Palestinian state once sovereignty is gained. Causing the United Nations, and even the U.S., an Israeli ally to get on the Saudi bandwagon. Then along comes the donald removing the nation from that bandwagon. Stalling Islamic enthusiasm because they had seen Allah responding to their prayers.

Israel will not surrender Jerusalem to the Muslim world in a peaceful manner. It’ll never be taken off the table. The tragedy is that Israel will have to deal with the fate of Jerusalem by themselves. The United States will be irrelevant, even if she has a mind change concerning Israel. The world is marching to a time when the world’s armies will gather to take Jerusalem from Israel. By that time, the United States will be a heap of ashes.

One would think that with all that is occurring in the region because of religion. With its impact globally, that people would be desperate for information. Trying to sort out and make some sense out of religion and its global impact. An impact powerful enough to disrupt the global economy beyond what the world has ever experienced. Gathering a momentum power that could annihilate the world.

But most are not, rather they are amused. Writing off their shenanigans, as the behavior of lunatics. Who if anything will annihilate themselves. But they will not be so amused, when Iran becomes a nuclear power. Or should Pakistan’s nuclear weapons fall into the hands of those lunatics. Then those shenanigans will take on a whole new meaning.

Lesson taught and failed! The West has failed to learn its lesson from the toppling of Saddam Hussein and the conflict in Afghanistan. Democracy’s of the west is not a cure all for the woes of a Muslim world. In some instances, it creates more problems than it cures. It’s because God keep interfering. As he has His own design for the world, and the non Muslim world will not like it.

It’s almost inconceivable that this turmoil centers around the small nation of Israel. With a population of less than ten million people; smaller than North Carolina. A major part of this turmoil is all about Jerusalem. Jerusalem is vital historically and religiously to Israel, Islam, and Christendom. The turmoil over Jerusalem is centuries old. It was the capital of the Old Testament’s King David. Conquered by King Nebuchadnezzar who made slaves out of the Israelites. Jerusalem has changed rulers many times with the Muslims controlling Jerusalem until 1967. With the six day war against Israel (1967) the Muslims lost control of Jerusalem.

They may never get control of Jerusalem, again! But it will not be because they failed to try. The European Union with an Army may lead an attack to secure Jerusalem for Islam. Those who follow the news know that Germany has encouraged the formation of an army for the European Union. And some think that the EU is in the stages of becoming its old self, as the revived Roman Empire. And as every day passes, Europe becomes more Muslim, and less Christian. Again, we have religion in the news as an event maker. Getting little press because this army is being proposed for defensive purposes. And not being seen as an offensive force, for Islam. The Muslim world knows that there are two ways for them to get control of Jerusalem. Annihilate Israel but Israel is militarily to powerful for the entire Islamic community. This they learned in 1967. That leaves them with the option to nuke Israel! Which of course brings into play the Iranians, and their nuclear program. The other way to capture Jerusalem would be for the community of nations through United Nations to dispatch armies as a means of establishing peace in the region. Under the authority of the once unthinkable but now probable a one world government.

Which might succeed temporarily, but will ultimately fail, because Jesus Christ is to rule from Jerusalem. Micah 4:1-5, But in the last days…(vs.1) the God of Jacob will teach us His ways (vs.2). The law will come from Zion and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem (vs.2). Many strong nations will be rebuked (vs.3). In the end they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore, (vs.4). There will be no more fear, (vs.4)!! For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God, forever and ever (vs.5).

The Muslims have a different take on the end times with the world submitting to Allah, as noted previous postings.

Many Christian theologians are content with biblical prophecies predicting that Jesus will govern from Jerusalem and so are Muslim theologians. But with a different perspective Jesus will deny that he’s the son of God. Jesus will be a devotee of Islam and his allegiance will be to Allah. As a new era of time unfolds from Jerusalem. Understand how this plays out from the previous posting.

Here is the puzzle to be addressed with future discussions. Who is to say that the Jewish, or Muslim approach to God is less correct than the Christian approach to God?

We know that humans can not be relied upon to live outside of their personal bias. Human ingenuity, has developed to the point where global annihilation can readily occur. All that power is captured from the perspective of individual and nation state bias. And from our era, a religious bias.

World madness by perceptional images of God

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was elected President of the, Islamic Republic of Iran, in 2005. Early in his presidency, he made headlines around the world. By saying that the world would be better off without Israel. He has repeated that statement so often that many thought then, and today, that it was just harmless rhetoric.

But he has moved on to amuse some while angering others by calling a conference that called into the question the Holocaust. It does not end there because he has also said that Israel should be moved somewhere in Europe. And some suspect that that there will be no peace, no matter what Trump says, unless he agrees to relocate the Jews through out Europe.

Why Europe, because according to Ahmadinejad, Christian states (Great Britain through the Balfour agreement) created Israel on the sacred lands that belong to the Muslim world. Therefore, those responsible Christian states should move Israel to be among European’s where they belong.

While such statements have gotten him amble press coverage, his apocalyptic religious zealotry has mostly gone unnoticed. Maybe because the media sees such shenanigans as political show boating. Just a wacko, seeking world attention. After all, what else could be behind such insane statements.

Regardless of what the media or governments think, Ahmadinejad did see himself as an apocalyptic figure. He has discussed his super natural experience while speaking from the podium at the United Nations, September 2006. During his speech he was covered by a light of some sort. Ahmadinejad insists that the light was not directed to the podium by any United Nations personnel. Ahmadinejad is adamant that the light was sent from heaven. This spectacular occurrence was witnessed by another person associated with his presidential delegation. Who said that he noticed the light as soon as President Ahmadinejad uttered the holy words, “in the name of Allah.” The aide said that the light was surrounding and protecting the President.

The light is described as being green. Ahmadinejad confirmed that the light was green. he declared that he was placed inside the protective aura of the green light. The President went on to say that he felt that the atmosphere changed. He said that while speaking for nearly thirty minutes. He noticed that the leaders of the world community did not move an eye lid. They were completely unable to blink. President Ahmadinejad continued saying, that it was as if they were being controlled supernaturally and suddenly they were Ahmadinejadized.

This protective aura that Iranian president experienced. Along with the captivating experience endured by the world leaders in attendance. Apparently was not noticed by them, or anyone, other than Ahmadinejad, and an aide.

Does that mean that it was a figment of his imagination.? Maybe and maybe not is the answer. He is not the first person to report some sort of supernatural experience. Both President Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush report having had personal conversion experiences with Jesus Christ.

Most likely many clerics of varying religious persuasions attest to some supernatural experience. As can this padre, which I’ll share. At a very young age, preschool. During the night, I felt the presence of something different. Being a child, I had no way to describe or explain this sensation. The next morning I noticed this huge book which was the family Bible. I paged its pages looking at the pictures completely mesmerized by the experience. Somehow knowing that what I experienced the night before, and those pictures were somehow connected. Being discovered by my Mother, who seemed alarmed. She closed its pages and chastised me. Only later to find me again paging its pages. That scenario replayed itself for awhile. Until the Bible disappeared, and never seen by me again. That whole experience has been with me just like it happened yesterday. Because I knew, as time pasted, that I was to become a priest.

One of my parents was Roman Catholic the other was Lutheran. Born into a family who had a grandfather of native Iroquois lineage. Great division existed in my family over religion, and ethnicity. Bitterness, and hate was always present.

My grandfather, Red Cloud, was served breakfast from time to time by his daughter and my mother. She asked me never to tell my father what was going on. I never betrayed her trust.

Because of such family division, I was never able to determine which of the six tribes that made up the Iroquois League my grandfather came from. I suspect though that he was of the Cayuga peoples of Ashtabula, Ohio. A pain that I have never been able to put to sleep.

The years passed, and I reached age nineteen. It was the month of February, the fifth day. I was reading a book on religion (one of several passions, books, physical fitness and international affairs), when I felt suddenly felt compelled to confess my sins, and embrace Christ, as my personal Lord and Redeemer. What made that experience significant was my childhood experience. The room was poorly lit, and I knelled on my knees to pray. Suddenly an aura of white covered me, and brightened the whole room. Of course, I had no explanation for what occurred, and was not about to share my experience, for fear of being labeled a lunatic. So, I started reading the Bible. Months later, I came to the Second book of Corinthians. Which read, “If any person be in Christ, he becomes different. Old ways are gone, and behold! things are entirely different,” 2 Corinthians 5:17. Then everything came together, my bedroom experience, the family Bible, and the reading of a book about the consequences of sin. The rest is history because here I sit, and write, as an ordained padre.

So that leads me back to the supernatural experience that the former President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, who claims to have had such an experience. He should be taken seriously. Because he sees himself, as a vehicle for the ushering in of the return of the Shiite Muslim Messiah. And that means, the world community can expect greater turmoil through out the region because of Ahmadinejad visions. Which of course, has repercussions reaching every nation, as we Americans have experienced.

To haunt the world a sorrowful agreement

When you see the real possibility of the Jews in Israel facing extinction. That’s what the expression abomination of desolation spoken by Daniel means. (Daniel 9:27).

Jesus referenced that occurrence by announcing that a formidable persuasive person will be standing in Jerusalem which Jesus calls a holy place. (Matthew 24:15).

Run for cover! (Matthew 24:16-20). Think you have seen troublesome days? You have seen nothing, compared to what you are going to experience, said Jesus. (Matthew 24:21-28).

And my Chinese, and Middle Eastern readers laughed. Why not send me another one of your comments about what you’ve read here recently.

Some think materialism communism will rescue the world. Others think, it’ll be Allah. Truth be told, both the Chinese and the Muslim world will play a significant role in world madness of the aforementioned.

But they are only clutter along the way, serious clutter, but nevertheless clutter. The bear of the North will have a new master with it being most likely the Chinese and the Muslims. Who might well form an alliance, that could be global. Moving once, and forever to destroy the Jews

This will scare the heebee-jeebies out of Israel. Who then will make a covenant with an unsuspected global player. Not recognized as such by today’s world, but divinely recognized by the world of the supernatural.

So here we go from the one caught in the middle of all this chaos, the one who inspired Daniel to set events in perspective, God Almighty. “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to the sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of the abomination shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consumption is determined, is poured out on the desolate,” so said the angel Gabriel to Daniel. (Daniel 9:27).

What does an angel know about this kind of stuff? Nothing unless, Gabriel was responding to superior authority. Which he was, and said so, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand.

At the beginning of your prayers the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly loved; therefore consider the matter and understand the vision,” note Daniel 8:16-17, and the speed of angels, Ezekiel 1:14, and whom they serve, Psalms 103:21. (Daniel 9:22-23).

Questions arise from, Daniel 9:27. So, what are we to make of this stated covenant? For starters, who is the he, who enters into this covenant? And with whom, does he enter this covenant with? There is no way with absolute certainty to answer those questions.

Many theologians have tried, and they differ when they tackle those difficult questions. So at best, those of us who tackle those questions are engaging in speculation.

And such speculation has led to good friends becoming bitter enemies. Which has led to as many different Christian denominations across the world, as there stars in the sky. With each and every one of them proclaiming that they have been divinely given the perfect understanding of what the Bible teaches. Which, has led to a Christ like presences upon this earth that’s pretty unless.

Concerning that covenant here is a bit of speculation. This Padre suggests that the referenced, he, is modern day United Nations.

There is ample awareness that antisemitism is a growing phenomena. Stated above that perhaps there will be confederations of nations that will move to eliminate the Jews and their state.

Which, has been a long held hope from the Arab Muslim world. And now, this emerging empire is surprisingly gaining momentum from the community of nations.

Causing Israel to make a covenant with a power big and strong enough to secure her safety. Again speculation, abounds with the prevailing culprit being the Antichrist. And whom might this Antichrist be, perhaps, none other than a sitting pope. Its argued that Rome will break this covenant mid-week.

Bringing upon the world the great day of the Lord or the great tribulation. Because the papacy wants Jerusalem for itself.

Changes will take place because caught up in, Daniel 9:27, are the words, desolation who makes desolate. And that answers the asked question from, Matthew 24:3, “And what shall be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

With Jesus responding in Matthew 24:15, saying it’ll occur when you see, Daniel 9:27, occurring. And note phrase, standing in the holy place. Giving some credence that the worlds culprit/hero could be a sitting pope.

Of course, it could be argued that the culprit/hero could well be a Muslim. A school of Islamic prophecy argues that Iran will lead an end time war against Islam’s enemies. In over her head facing certain defeat, the prophesied redeemer of Islam appears and defeats Islam’s enemies. Then Jesus will appear, and the two of them will bring peace and justice to the world.

on its way the unprecedented

There he was, the most hated man in the Middle East. Sitting alone on the Mount of Olives, when his friends approached him and asked? “Tell us, what will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3).

So he sent them a shocker, that no doubt shook them to the very core of their being. He said, “When you see the probability that the the Jews, and the state of Israel will be obliterated from histories memory.” That will be a sure signal of my coming and the end of the age.” (Matthew 24:15).

So lets see what Daniel had to say about that matter. In the first year of Darius …, who was made king over the Chaldeans. In the first year of his reign I, Daniel understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the LORD through Jeremiah the prophet that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolation of Jerusalem. (Daniel 9:1-2).

Apparently, Daniel had discovered these words, “Then it shall come to pass, when seventy years are completed that I will punish the King of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans for their iniquity,” says the LORD; ‘and I will make it a perpetual desolation,'” Jeremiah 25:12-13.

Perhaps Daniel had also discovered the writings of one of God’s historians, Ezra. Who recorded the Kings history making proclamation freeing the Jews. Who were taken into captivity by King Nebuchadnezzar.

And so it was, King Cyrus of Persia, the King, who destroyed the once powerful ruler of the known world, the Babylon empire. Issued this historic proclamation recorded in Ezra 1:1-4. The Jews had been liberated and where on their way back to Jerusalem.

What Daniel learned drove him to pray for mercy. He set the tone for making wrong right. By recognizing sin for what is, a curse. Then acknowledging that righteousness belongs to God and to all mortals, who correct their ways. (Daniel 9:3-19).

Then Gabriel, whom Daniel thought was human like himself but wasn’t said Daniel, “… whom I had seen in the vision fly swiftly, reaching me about the time of the evening offering.”…, (Ezekiel 1:14, Daniel 8:16-17).

Saying, “O Daniel, I have come forth to give you skill to understand. … your prayers have been heard! The command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision. (Daniel 9:20-23).

Gabriel provided Daniel with content that might have baffled him. He starts by saying seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city to finish the transgressions, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity. (Daniel 9:24-25).

The weeks of years are complex and difficult to understand. Some have speculated that the weeks are weeks of years. I am not going to delve into that discussion other than to say. Note the phrase: “To finish transgressions, to make an end to sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity.” This is certain no matter what or how those seventy weeks play out. It was a prophecy given to Daniel covering the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Events necessary to start answering the question, what will a sign of your coming and the end of the age.

Now we have Gabriel taking the world through some uncharted prophetic times. He does this through his conversation with Daniel, as recorded in, Daniel 9:25-26. However, there is still considerable more history to be experienced. Before an aforementioned simple question finds its answer through a pathogenic virus that strikes to erase the memory of God from human awareness.

The journey continues next time.

Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; 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 until the consumption is determined, is poured out on the desolate. (Daniel 9:27).

Muddy waters of life

Can demons effect nature? Who knows the deep things of the heavens, reserved for God alone. But it seems that He drops some clues along histories way to suggest that demons can indeed disturb nature.

Jesus often taught the public that gathered to hear Him speak by story telling. Then when He was alone with His disciples, He would explain to them which He did on a particular day, and when He finished, He said, “Let us pass over to the other side.” See Mark 4:34-35.

So they set sail to cross the water, then a great storm arose. The strength of the wind caused the waves to rise and fill the ship to its capacity. Fear griped the disciples, and they thought for sure that they would drown. The storm didn’t seem to bother Jesus because He was in the back of the boat sleeping. But it bothered His disciples, so they woke Jesus, and said unto Him. “Master, don’t you care that we could parish?” Jesus got up, and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace be still.” And the wind ceased, and there was great calm.

Then Jesus rebuked his disciples, and said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it you have no faith?” And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, “What manner of man is this, that even the wind and sea obey Him? See Mark 4:34-41.

So then, can demons effect nature? For us, this side of heaven that’s a question that can only be answered through inferential thinking. And human deductions, are not always determinate for absolute conclusions. And certainly, that is the case concerning the aforementioned scriptures. And other recent discussions about this very phenomenon.

So then this is asked, could supernatural forces, like from the Devil, or from his entourage of fallen angels, tagged as demons have a vested interest in derailing their nemesis Jesus Christ? Answer YES! Because Jesus was headed to their shore. And while there, Jesus would reveal the extent of demonic influence upon a person.

It’s possible to establish a demonic presences on our earth. Because these conversations are recorded for us. And the LORD said unto Satan, “From where have you come?” And Satan answered the LORD, and said, “From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” See Job 2:2. Yet there is no recorded evidence of anyone having provided any proof of any personal encounters with Satan.

We have an interesting scene where we find Peter rebuking Jesus. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples. He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind me Satan, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but of the things of men.” See Mark 8:32-33.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. See Ephesians 6:12.

Emphasizing here, that the rulers of darkness when combined with the host of wickedness in the heavenly places. May well reek havoc among us mortals against our wishes or best interest. Causing Peter to offer this warning “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” See 1 Peter 5:8.

To be continued: Jesus and the world of demons. With Shakespeare having a poetic say about the dark side.

worlds beyond the obvious

The ways of Elijah’s Ravens, are best understood from previous discussions because of their mysterious wonderment. Could they have been angels or God himself?

We know that birds when directed serve the interest of their Creator, like all of us do. We know that these Ravens were more than just ordinary birds. Because they were able to receive directives, think and react, and then obey them.

And astonishingly, they knew Elijah, and where able to find him. And could it be that in light of, 1 Kings 19:5-10, that it’s possible that the Ravens from the previous discussion were angels?

This is shared because of this padre’s fascination with angels. Because as a toddler, this padre had an angelic encounter through the personage of what appeared to be a woman. Who told me that I was to become a priest. For decades, she would appear looking after me. Especially, after a demon murdered my mother. I knew it, nobody else did, and I wasn’t talking, or they would have had me committed to an insane asylum.

Being called to be a priest, and being a priest are vastly different. The latter requires the birthing experience of Romans 10:9-10 and 1 Corinthians 5:17. That demon that killed my mother was determined to destroy me. And it almost succeeded, as I was well on my way as a willing participant in the deepest abyss of darkness imaginable. When unexpectedly, and not seeking deliverance, I was delivered. The presence of light drove me to my knees to confess my sins which is best described through Romans 10:9-10.

Upon rising the next morning, I knew something was very different. Securing a Bible, I began searching for answers, and when I found 2 Corinthians 5:17, I had found my answer.

Having said that, lets see where we find Elijah. Of all places, he’s sleeping under a tree. When he was touched by an angel, who spoke to him, 1 Kings 19:7. And in verse 7, we discover that it happened a second time. During those times he ate and drank, this padre suspects Elijah consumed a supernaturally charged food. Because what he was about to undertake, was beyond his physical abilities. Which was a 40 day journey to the mountain of God. Only to be asked when he got there by LORD; “What are you doing here? And he answered, “I’m zealous for you.” The people are turning from your ways. Destroying everything that represents you, and what you expect from them. Going as far as to kill those who defend you, and only I remain.

That’s the pain of the ages for followers exhausted from their experiences from defending the ways of their Creator. We know its a psychological experience from being human. But when, the supernatural kicks in the human experience becomes very different.

In light of the above discussion here’s a few thoughts to ponder. “I was found by those who sought Me not. I was manifested to them, who were not asking for Me. See Romans 10:20.

 

Ancient lessons 4 a modern world the supernatural strikes us

Elijah after being told by an angel that he wasn’t man enough to make the 40 day journey without eating a supernaturally charged food. Because after eating, Elijah successfully completes his journey. See 1 Kings 19:5-8. Only to be asked by his LORD, “What are you doing here?” See 1 Kings 19:9. Apparently his answer was accepted because Elijah was given a new directives.

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

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

There is a sacred edict that can’t 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 from 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 have gotten so bad that he stands alone in defending what God expects from the people, and that his own life is in danger.

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

The avenues are different for the Christ haters 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 to the heavens help like Elijah, O God for only I survive!

Elijah was instructed, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And he did 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.” 1 Kings 19:11-12.

After the fire a voice was heard, and Elijah heard it. He went from his secure place in a cave and went to its entrance. And the voice asked, Elijah, what are you doing hear? And he tells, the voice of his commitment to the ways of God. And how distraught he was that the Israelis had forsaken the ways of their God. With the countries leadership murdering the nations people. And God gave His faithful servant multiple assignments. See 1 Kings 19:12-16.

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

These truths stand out to be examined. What occurred happened before the LORD, as an observer. Because we are told that the LORD passed by, but had nothing to do with aftermath of each destructive force. Telling us that like the Ravens, 1 Kings 17:4, even the elements serve and obey Him without question.

It is only God’s most cherished creation man, to whom He gave freedom to choose that defines him, then and today. That was Elijah’s complaint! And everything that followed was a response to humanities defying of what, was and is, sacredly recorded by 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 people remain faithful.

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

For us the believing faithful, that still small voice speaks to each in a personal and specific manner. And 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. See 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 the Jesus. The believers Supreme Commander-in- Chief. See 2 Corinthians 5:8.

From previous two discussions, and with this one, the mighty should be dumbfounded. With the menu’s of divine providence always prevailing. For tomorrow help comes from where it’s least expected. Because God, has a date with destiny.

All around us troubling occurrences strike. Sometimes from the natural manifestation of nature for the good of humanity. And at other times, the ways of a 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.

angelic encounters a message

Sometime in the future, archaeologists digging through the rubble of what use to be the United States discovered a curious document. In that document they discovered something relevant for the day at hand.

These space travelers traveled to our galaxy from a very distant place. They were a species where everything evolved around 66 books. At any rate they came here as a result of an angelic encounter. It is said that there commander for this expedition was the Apostle John. Who shared this experience, “Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. The he said to me, “See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and those who keep the words of this book, Worship God,” Revelation 22:8-9.

John was about to seal up the end of the aged church. Representing perhaps the greatest failure to earthlings. But the angel said to John, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand,” verse 10.

With the angel categorizing earthlings behavior as follows, “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy let him be holy still,” verse 11.

With this grand finale occurring, “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to their work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the End, the First and the Last,” verses 12-13. And that day, can’t come soon enough for this Padre.

Times are turbulent and worsening. The 66 books are irrelevant for most. With people fleeing by droves from anyone or anything associated with those 66 books. Why? Because, the gatekeepers have become entrepreneurs selling fables of deceit. More engaged in empire building than the contents of those 66 books unabridged.

getting acquainted with the supernatural

History is a good teacher. And, history is God! Those who refuse to learn from Him are doomed to repeat His courses again and again. That’s how the world becomes uglier. On the other hand those who pass His tests, reap His rewards. And the world enjoys His bountiful provisions. Which world, do you live in? Obviously, those who have learned are a shrinking minority while those who haven’t are turning their lives and our America into a wasteland.

So here we go! The word of the LORD came to him (Elijah). Get away from here! And it shall be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.

So he went and did according to the word of the LORD. “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” See Hebrews 13:8. Meaning get out of where you are, and live your life according to the word of the LORD in that same environment. Get some help from yesterdays discussion.

Be like Elijah, who went into a cave, and spent the night in that place. And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said to him, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?” So he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; for the the children of Israel have forsaken your covenant, torn down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword. I only am left; and they seek to take my life.” See 1 Kings 19:9-10. And continue reading, 1 Kings 19, and while reading determine what the word of the LORD would have you do. You do that by consulting and studying other scriptures. Insights from yesterdays discussion.

So you say that’s Old Testament stuff. Think again! The Word of the LORD is none other than Jesus Christ. We learn that from Revelation 19:13. Where we find this everlasting historical truth. And He was clothed with a vesture (body) dipped in blood; and His name was called the Word of God. The centuries have changed, but God’s applications have not. One of which is to seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. See Matthew 6:33. Which means you’ll have the basic staples for survival while you are needed here, at the very least and maybe a whole lot more. To comprehend that, you must think beyond material substances. The folly of most.

Here’s how it played out for Elijah. The Ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. And it happened after while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land. See 1 Kings 17:2-7. He had learned histories lessons and life’s necessities were his. While others, who had failed to learn his lessons went without. Which always creates an ugly environment, of winner takes all.

Jesus isn’t Santa, as some think, not in July and certainly not in December. So learn this, Jesus has a long memory and bounties are showered upon those who bring forth fruits worthy of repentance. See Matthew 3:8. But sometimes at a great price; even death. Know your scriptures; know your riches in there rightful priority.

Best way to experience Elijah type of fulfillment is to ask, what can I do for Jesus, and not live the life of what can Jesus do for me. He’s already done enough. That vesture dipped in blood, is His body. The lamb foreordained to be slaughtered from the beginning of time. 1 Peter 1:20 and Revelation 13:8.

To be continued:Angelic encounters

interference of the horrific

From behind me while I was kneeling a hand suddenly touched me which caused me to tremble. A voice said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly respected listen to me, and you will understand what your about to be told. Stand up! And face me because I have been sent to you. I did as I was told, but I couldn’t get control of myself because I just kept trembling fearing for my life. Then, I was told, relax you are safe. No harm will come to you.

I thought to myself, who wouldn’t fear at hearing a voice without any physical presences? But the voice said, “From the first day that you determined to humble yourself before your God. And, to secure knowledge concerning the future yet to unfold.” Because of your words addressed to your God, I was sent with His message.

The prince of Persia created a barricade that totally prevented my passage to you. For 21 days all passage ways to you were closed to me. But Michael the Archangel, God’s chief deputy charged for assigning angelic responsibilities for those serving under his command. He himself made it possible for me to reach you.

In answer to Daniel’s inquisitive yearnings concerning the fate of the Jews, as histories future unfolds. See Daniel 10:10-14.

The purpose of this discussion was to demonstrate that there are very powerful unknown forces. Running interference antagonistic to the good intentions of those communing with their God. Which, at times appears to be for naught.

Know this, keep on pressing on because the solution will come, Maybe not from Michael or one of his designee’s, but maybe it will. The supernatural is indeed mysterious. This padre could tell you of such instances from his own experiences. Then there is always this profoundness to trust. Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us. See 1 John 5:14.

Need a cure swallow this

Lets take a journey into the book of Revelation. A book filled with symbols and drama requiring a back and forth knowledge of both the Old and New Testaments. Even with that some of the symbols are open to speculation. Take for example the imagery of the slain Lamb. Referring to Jesus Christ, who was murdered in order to redeem us by His split blood, Revelation 5:9. Also note the explicit acknowledgment, that the gospel of Jesus Christ has universal implications.

Then note the imagery of the Lamb having seven horns and seven eyes, Revelation 5:6-7. This suggest that the slain Lamb is of superior power with nothing escaping His understanding. Perfect in power, knowledge and insight. The Bright Morning Star of Revelation 22:16, who is able to light the way. With healing in his wings connected with Malachi 4:2 with its implicit and necessary tie to Matthew 1:21.

For that is the essences of our Judeo/Christian heritage. You shall call His name Jesus for he shall save His people from their sins. It has been said by world policy makers at various stages of history. That we are involved in a struggle over ideas. And that those, whose ideas prevail will shape human destiny. Such utterances are usually presented as secular arguments. Which is why the world is in such a mess. Yes! All of history has been a struggle for the souls of humanity. Fighting and dying over whose ideas that will shape and determine human destiny. It should, and must be our Judeo/Christian ideas that must prevail. If America, and the world community is to return to a peaceful and then prosperous future. Because, such ideas are of a supernatural origin. Now for the biblical foundation to support such propositions.

Revelation 5:4-5, finds John weeping because no one was found worthy to open and read the book, or to even look at the book. But John was told not to weep because one was found worthy. The one worthy was the “Lion of the tribe of Judah,” the “Root of David.” Which is an explicit reference to the greatest mysteries in the Bible, unexplainable by human logic. Here we are presented with the duality of Jesus Christ. His human ancestry is with the nation of Judah or modern Israel. With his divine nature occurring through the “Root of David.” Which establishes His credentials as being fully human, while at the same time being God.

This mystery has begged for a logical explanation of how this could be possible. There is no human explanation but there is a biblical one. It is found in Revelation 19:11-12, where the Faithful and True, who in righteousness judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire. On His head were many crowns. A name was written that no man knew, but He Himself. Verse 13, “And his name was called the Word of God.” The duality of his humanity and divinity come from verse 12, a mystery known only to Jesus Christ. Suffice for our knowledge is that He is the “Word of God.” But as the book of Revelation closes, Jesus highlights His divinity and humanity. “I, Jesus, have sent to you My angel to testify unto you these things in the churches, I am the root and the offspring of David…,” Revelation 22:16.

That is where we get our Judea/Christian heritage from. His humanness through the tribe or nation of Judah. His divinity, and humanity where Christ himself declares himself to be the offspring of David. A mystery kept secret known only to the slain Lamb.

America, and the world is faced with varied, and complex mixtures of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as forces under God. These religions, and not the United States, or some other world body like the United Nations will determine the worlds future. Islam is the enemy of Judaism and Christianity. Because Islam stands in opposition to every thing Jewish and Christian! And because of their hatred of the Jews and Christians, they represent the most eminent threat of the 21 century to global civility and economic security. Muslims are responsible for the currant global insecurity which will grow like an incurable cancer. Unless the world community, specifically the United States, wakes up to save itself from this barbaric menace.

If there is to be cure, it must come from the Lion of the tribe of Judah, who must rise to devour Islam. Whose king is David and whose divinity is of the root of David. Reaching to Christendom through Jesus. Uniting Jew, and Christian in the humanness associated with the tribe of Judah. And supernaturally through David to Christ.

Jerusalem + Golan Heights Israels

From a purely humanistic perspective, Israel should always be hesitant to vacate lands captured during her defensive war in 1967 because of their hostile neighbors. Israel is surrounded by nearly two dozen Arab Muslim states. Who are commanded by the Qur’an to force the entire planet to submit to Islam. Many of these Arab Muslim states are dictatorships with 60 times the population of Israel. Sitting on 640 times the land mass of Israel.

Arab Muslim propagandists refer to Israel as having an expansionist appetite. It is said that Israel exists on 1/6 of one percent of the land making up what Muslims like to think is Arab Muslim property.

Israel is smaller than the state of New Jersey. With a land mass of about 8,000 square miles. Israel at its longest point stretches 260 miles. It measures about 60 miles at its widest point. With its narrowest point running as few as three miles. Israel enjoys about 112 miles of coastline.

The survival of Israel upon such a small land mass is a miracle. Here’s an interesting conversation which sustains Israels survival abilities on such a small patch of land against overwhelming odds. Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, (Who is the word of the LORD? The answer is found in John 1:1-5; Revelation 19:13), saying, “Behold, I am the LORD God of all flesh. Is there anything to hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:27. Obviously, Israel survives because that’s what God wants. By common sense and by applying the it should be the  converse.

And so the devoted ones should say, to hell with decrees by world legislative bodies and public opinion. And stand, and help Israel, until God gives notice otherwise, and He will. But it’ll only be of short duration. He’ll break their backs again until they recognize Jesus as their promised Messiah. And, that day will also come to pass.

The devoted don’t question the rule maker, they obey Him. That was said for the possessors of Psalms 65:4. To know truth is to enter the gates of the mysterious one.

Indeed a miracle the people of Israel numbering less than 9 million as of April 2019. That miracle can be found in Genesis 12:2, “I will make Israel a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.”

Surrounded by more than 300 million Arab Muslims. Syria alone had a population of about 21 million which is in itself was more than twice the population of Israel. That was before the prophecy of Isaiah 17:1 proved Genesis 16:12 to be true. So Syria, a Jew hating nation is a heap of nothingness today. Showing that the mysterious One has mysterious ways of leveling the fields of hate against Israel. Should be a warning to Iran, Russia, Turkey and all Jew haters. Eventual doom will be your fate for warring against Israel.

Proving another proclamation by the mysterious one who asked, Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you know what these are?” And I said, “No my lord.” So he answered and said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel, not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the LORD of hosts, Zechariah 4:5-6. So for the devoted, we know that the the LORD of host hovers over Israel and guarantees her survival for now.

We the devoted give thanks for the survival of Israel and His wondrous works declare that your name is near. Because at the proper time, you will judge uprightly. The earth, and all its inhabitants are dissolved; I set up the pillars firmly, Selah,” Psalm 75:1-3.

Still many refer to Israel as the aggressor for fighting a defensive war in 1967, And then holding Israel responsible for the political discords in the region today. We know that Israels overwhelming success in victory was because of the aforementioned dialogues all of which were supernatural revelations for her survival. Making it ridiculous to suggest that less than nine million people could be responsible for the political unrest of more than 300 million Arab Muslims in the region.

The problem is not about the politics of geography as Arab Muslim propagandist want the world to think. It is all about religion! It wouldn’t make any difference if Israel voluntarily surrendered small Israel to the Arab Muslim world. And by another mysterious miracle exiting Israel all together. With mysteriousness cranking out another homeland for Israel within the United States. With all parties agreeing that the state of California would become the state of Israel. With Californians exiting to the uninhabitable desert spaces of Texas to remake their land of sex, violence and gross depravity in the image of California. While the Jews, in what use to be California returning their state into the land of milk and honey.

Wouldn’t make any difference because the Arab Muslim world would still call for the annihilation of the Jews. That is their obsession sparked by the Muslim war manual, the Quar’an. Any talk about land for peace is just that, talk! As documented by the Qur’an. “Those who war against God and his messenger and strive to spread corruption in the land should be punished by death, crucifixion, the amputation of an alternate hand and foot, or banishment from the land; a disgrace for them in this world, and a terrible punishment in the hereafter, ” The Feast, sura or chapter 5:33. And, “You who believe do not take the Jews and Christians as an allies. They are allies only to each other. Anyone who takes them as an ally becomes one of them. God does not guide such wrongdoers,” The Feast, sura or chapter 5:51.

different world order its origins

The sons, and their father were a little stunned at hearing from their beloved grandfather and father that he had had a face to face conversation with God Almighty. Who informed him that he had been chosen to be an instrument in the hands of divine providence to create a different world order.

Thinking that perhaps that the old guy in failing health was delusional. If Jacob sensed any of those concerns on their part, he completely ignored them. Unveiling the totality of their exchange this way.

As a people, Jews, you are going to be prosperous and in numbers large enough to make you a formidable inhibitor to opposing powers. They will have different plans for the order of the world. In contrast My plan is to make all nations prosperous through you. And when you are gone, your children will continue to perpetuate your inheritance from one generation to the next. Because, My decrees are everlasting.

Their plan through out the centuries is to partition the world in such away that one kingdom would be rich and powerful through a single dominant power. Leaving the rest of the worlds populous poor. Forcing one unprecedented war after another with the indent of winner being like you, Jacob. Once they discover what I’ve done for you. But it will not be because of the whys, and hows discussed yesterday.

Suddenly Jacob noticed Joseph’s sons, and asked, “Who are the boys with you?” Joseph replied, “They are my sons who were born here in Egypt.” “Bring them to me,” he said, “So that I can bless them.” The old man now frail, and with failing eyesight making him nearly blind. So Joseph brought the boys up close to their grandfather. Oh, Joseph, sire of nations, I never expected to see your face again, and now the Almighty has privileged me to see your children as well. So he kissed, and embraced his two grandsons.

Authenticity is important, though engaged in story telling which was done for clarity purposes. Here are the actual text materials, Genesis 48:1-6; 8-11. For tomorrow, a discussion of what is making today’s world so chaotic.
