MOUNT ZION, The City of God

The word Zion actually means ‘fortification.’ Zion is both the City of David and the City of God. As the Bible progresses, the word Zion is transitioned from being a physical city to a spiritual context. The spiritual Zion and the promises attached to it are a cause for great joy and peace.

The term ‘fortification’ conjures up a sense of strength, protection and safety. As it well should. A safe place in the midst of a raging storm, or defense and protection amidst the enemy.

Zion was originally the name of the ancient Jebusite fortress in the city of Jerusalem. Zion came to stand not only for the fortress itself but also for the city of Jerusalem in which the fortress stood. After King David captured the fortress of Zion it was then called the City of David, and God dwelled there with His people.

When David’s son Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem, the word Zion was expanded in meaning to include also the temple and the area surrounding it. Zion was eventually used as a name for the city of Jerusalem, the land of Judah and the people of Israel as a whole.

The most important use of the word Zion is when it is used figuratively in the spiritual sense for the true Israel, the people of God, for it is God’s spiritual kingdom.

Isaiah 12:1-6
1And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. 2Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. 3Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. 4And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. 5Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. 6Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee
.

Just as surely as God was with David in conquering Zion as well as with Solomon while building the temple, He is with us. We are told that the Lord loveth the gates of Zion, (Psalms 87:1-2) more than all the dwellings of Jacob. We are also shown that the highest Himself shall establish Zion (Psalms 87:5).

For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. Isaiah 62:1

Joel 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

He tells us in Isaiah 62:12 that His holy people will be redeemed, called and sought out. A city not forsaken.A fortress built and established by God Himself. For His people; fully protected and strengthened by Him. Being sought out by the Lord is a tremendous blessing all by itself.

One day the real Zion will really stand up. It will not be by our own power, but by the very power that breathed life into Adam’s nostrils, the power that will destroy evil; the One who gives and takes away, Jesus Christ our Savior. Our refuge in the most literal sense of the word.

Nice to have a little company here, anonymous. Thank you for the encouraging words. I am glad you are here. I left you a comment at the previous post in case you didn't see it.

The world now more than ever is a changing place while it seems to be holding its' breath waiting for something. Something to happen or someone to do something about what is ailing it. But the runaway train is only gaining speed which makes one's faith ever more important. Cling to it will all your strength and give Him thanks and praise always. Even in this storm for all His words are true and He is with us.

Missing our little community in a big way, but where there are two (or more) of us gathered, He is there also. Thank you anonymous for gathering here with me.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

Ali,

Our difference which is so small between us in some ways but vast in another, can still be overcome in our shared love for God. Someday He will show us everything we need to know. Until then, all we can do is further His Kingdom in whatever way we can.

It is my prayer that we can discuss our difference if we so choose to do so without losing our love for each other.

Keeping the faith with you.

God has said in Quran:

"... for every one of you (Jews,Christians and Muslims) did We appoint a law and a way, and if God had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to God is your return, of all (of you), so He will let you know that in which you differed " -Holy Quran (5:48)

This is what you quoted in the Quran:

"... for every one of you (Jews,Christians and Muslims) did We appoint a law and a way, and if God had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to God is your return, of all (of you), so He will let you know that in which you differed " -Holy Quran (5:48)

With the link you gave these are the different translations:

005.048
YUSUFALI: To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety:
so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee.
To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people,
but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah;
it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute;
PICKTHAL: And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it,
and a watcher over it. So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed,
and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee.
For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced-out way. Had Allah willed He could have made you one community.
But that He may try you by that which He hath given you (He hath made you as ye are). So vie one with another in good works.
Unto Allah ye will all return, and He will then inform you of that wherein ye differ.
SHAKIR: And We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, verifying what is before it of the Book and a guardian over it,
therefore judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their low desires (to turn away)
from the truth that has come to you; for every one of you did We appoint a law and a way,
and if Allah had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you,
therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to Allah is your return, of all (of you),
so He will let you know that in which you differed;

Israel stopped a Lebanese ship from bringing aid to Palestine and DemocracyNow! reported that the Israelis boarded the Lebanese ship and roughed up those on board. Not hard to believe after what happened to Cynthia McKinney's boat. Is that not an act of war? Lebanon and others are desperately pleading for an end to the inhumane blockade. Netanyahu will be in office soon and he vows to 'liquidate' Hamas, Gaza'a elected government:

Ali, while I believe Mohammad is a prophet/messenger, the Lord Jesus Christ was far greater than a messenger. He performed miracles that only God can perform and was the ONLY sinless man to walk the earth. True, He was (is) a tremendous messenger bringing the most important gift to all mankind.

How come you couldn't find it? It is in the SHAKIR's section, I copy paste it here from your own post which is as follow:

"...for every one of you did We appoint a law and a way,

therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to Allah is your return, of all (of you),

FF,

The notion that one of the prophets of God was greater or better than the others is not within the arm length of any mankind for evaluation or judgment. Even though it pervasively has been said and written among the Muslim sectors that prophet Mohammad SPLIT THE MOON! and MADE A TREE WALK! to show some people that God's miracles can be come down whenever through any of his prophets, still his dazzling miracle of God known as Quran is a big mystery of 21th century!

Greetings Ali, thanks for the links and I will look at them, but I will not be swayed from my belief that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only One worthy to open the Book of Life, and thus pass righteous infinite justice on all the inhabitants of the earth for all time, is the one true God.

We may have to agree to disagree my brother and wait for the Lord when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is who He says He is.

This will be our crime in the NWO, worshipping a man, but Jesus is far more than an ordinary man.

I am not familiar with the teaching of the Quran and have never heard of the miracles Mohammad performed. Please forgive my ignorance. I do not wish to get into a match of whose miracles are greater for I only know of Jesus' acts.

Wonderful post, Forever Faithful, it's great to see you posting again!

Zion is like a prophetic promise that's emerging from the fog of time. it's coming into focus for people who have been looking for something greater than what this world has to offer. God wants us to remember what's in store, and your post helps in that global present effort. The more you keep your eyes peeled for links and descriptions of Zion in other scripture, the more you'll see. It's amazing how much it saturates the scriptures. Stay blessed, faithful sister, and keep shining!

Moses demonstrated that the miracles of a lesser god can be swallowed whole by those of a greater god. There will always be greater and lesser gods, that is the nature of the universe. To reduce the discussion to a pissing contest between prophets is a form of blasphemy, and shows just how deep the influence of the dark extends. To hold one name above another is a form of idol worship, and is condemned even in the OT, all are one. Put away your toys people, the age of proselytizing is over. Religions were never intended to be the final answer, merely stepping stones to greater knowledge. Their failings and omissions are snares for the foolish, but are enticements to the wise to seek a greater truth. Do not chain yourself to such obsolete structures, their purpose has been served, and now is the time to move on. That there are multiple faiths demonstrates the desire of God to create diversity, not separation. The breadth and scope of human thought is displayed by the divergent manner we treat the same subject, just as jazz and opera are variations of the same musical notes. Both are valid, but neither of them are the final culmination of the art.

Despite your statement "Religions were never intended to be the final answer" I believe that they have been and they are the final answers.
God has never wanted the people to come over one religion, As said in Quran too "...He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you , therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds.."

Have faith like a child accepting unconditionally that ALL His words are true. Certainty in an uncertain world. I give thanks and praise that you are here anonymous(es). I think there are still two unless I am mistaken.

Indeed YB, Look upon the things that are not of this world. This is what sustains me - His glorious promises, even now by being able to watch and not fear but rather rejoice for the time growing short. I am ever more amazed by Him and there is so much more to come. Blessings and love to you my amazing brother. I can suffer anything with His assurances. The suffering will be temporary while the peace forever. While I am not an unhappy person, I cling to nothing in this world other than my loved ones and His people, I am patient in the Lord but I am ready for an end to this system of things. Your words always bring me joy and it is good to hear from you. Been missing you too in a big way.

The word Zion is written about in almost 200 places in the Bible. In Revelations, it is written as Sion. I have always wondered about this and would love to hear your insight on it. I thought maybe a name change (like Paul) after the transformation.

It is good discussing our differences and respecting each others' beliefs. We agree to disagree and remain watchful together in love and peace. All things will be revealed and it is a blessing watching prophecy unfold with you my brother.

The followings are the verses of holy Quran in which God directly asks Prophet Jesus:

" And when Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind:
Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah? he saith: Be glorified! It was not mine to utter that to which I had no right.
If I used to say it, then Thou knewest it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Thy Mind. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Knower of Things Hidden? I spake unto them only that which Thou commandedst me, (saying): Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.
I was a witness of them while I dwelt among them, and when Thou tookest me Thou wast the Watcher over them.
Thou art Witness over all things. If Thou punish them, lo! they are Thy slaves, and if Thou forgive them (lo! they are Thy slaves). Lo! Thou, only Thou,
art the Mighty, the Wise.
Allah saith: This is a day in which their truthfulness profiteth the truthful, for theirs are Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they are secure for ever, Allah taking pleasure in them and they in Him. That is the great triumph.
Unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is therein,
and He is Able to do all things. "

Watching the so-called discussion here is like watching a game of ping-pong, where each opponent tries to smack an inconsequentially insignificant object back to the other with great force. It is hard to believe that the game has become a pointless effort between two fundamentalist camps vainly trying to convince the other of the validity of their respective worn out doctrines. Should be an interesting match…Not! The really sad part is the table where this match is playing out is on the deck of the Titanic. Lift your gaze from this meaningless little ball and look around you, the waters are rising and you are already ankle deep, and the ship will be long on the ocean floor before rescuers arrive in the morning. There were never enough lifeboats, and most are on the wrong side of a listing ship. This game has been going on far too long, and the score is still 0-0. Mentioning a name or stressing your connections will not get you a place on a lifeboat this time. Forget your mindless religions, and get with God… directly!

Beautiful and encouraging post. Zion is to be compared to the "Holiest of All" in the Tabernacle, where the Throne of the Lord rests.
The Tabernacle itself with the "Holy Place" is as Jerusalem. It was in Zion that David danced before the Lord.

young brother said...

(), why did you say that? Do you really think that you are simply watching what's going on here, and not a part of it yourself? If you wish to change the way that we relate to one another here, your best opportunity would be to lead by example, not to scathingly condemn our conduct. We are on this so-called "Titanic" together, don't forget that. The best way we can demonstrate how much we love our God is by our love for one another. If anyone says that they love God, and yet hates his brother, that person is a liar. Be very careful not to make yourself out to be a liar. Even the least of us here is infinitely valuable in the eyes of our Father.

Ali, thank you for the Koran post. I do recall in John, Jesus praying to the father that he might glorify the Son...this was right before the crucifixion, but there is a difference between "Glorify" and "Deify" (which is the crux of your passage). I think the main thing that was lost in the development of Christianity is how Jesus and Mary were turned into gods in the eyes of the people, who wanted to maintain a comfortable distance between the throne of heaven, and the ceiling of our potential. The amount of our faith determines how much of heaven we can see in this life. Jesus was trying to show people how close the kingdom of God is to our realm, how we can cross over into it if we have faith. He claimed to be the Son of God, but also said that others can become children of God as well, doing not only the miracles he did, but "even greater things". That concept has been lost, and Jesus has been comfortably placed out of our reach way up in heaven by the religion of Christianity. What needs to be restored/remembered is that the Holy Spirit is a bridge that connects living people directly with the living God.

2 Samuel 6:14
And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded ith a linen ephod.

...with all his might (imagine). The Lord made David king over all of Israel and David's throne, through Christ, is established forever. Just as surely as the Lord dwelt with His people in the Old Testament, He dwells with His people now through the Holy Spirit. I give thanks and praise.

Great testimony our young brother. Yes...even greater things. Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father which signifies equality, and the Holy Spirit is just as powerful. Without Him we are nothing, but with Him all things are possible and what a remarkable journey we are on. It is good that the Titanic is going down; for the deeper it sinks, the more the Lord is raising His people up. Many innocent people are going down with the Titanic which is why the Lord will send messengers.

Thank you for all the great tidbits about Zion, Peter. Indeed, the Holiest of All. I would be humbled to be standing in the outer most court of our Lord and Savior whose Kingdom endures forever. ...even just one foot in the door.

The election in Israel is in shambles with both parties claiming victory, and this is for propaganda purposes and to further their agenda; of this I know for certain.

There seems to be some planetary alignment this Saturday the 14th that astrologers and astronomers are excited about and some are referring to it as the 'Age of Aquarius" - a new age of enlightenment and peace and most likely a pagan holy day from what I could surmize. I guess there was an eclipse of the full moon on Monday as well. I want to clarify that I do not practice astrology, but love the Heavens for they belong to Him, and He tells us there will be signs in them.

Indonesia had a major earthquake today of 7.5 with a tsunami warning posted, but no more news about it. Everything is a flash. Prayers for those affected by the storms and tornadoes in Texas and Oklahoma. While the earliness of the tornadoes is unprecedeted, the 'waves' of the storms were even more unusual with back to back rounds of it. Some of the tornadoes were a half-mile wide. Britain is experiencing major flooding, and no reporting on the wildfires in the Land down under other than they have two arson suspects in custody. The wildlifes have devastated wildlife with millions killed, and turtles were found with melted shells; koalas with burnt paws.

May His peace be upon us all.

YB,

You wrote: "The amount of our faith determines how much of heaven we can see in this life. Jesus was trying to show people how close the kingdom of God is to our realm, how we can cross over into it if we have faith."

So agree with this. People have worshipped Jesus but have not followed his teachings. Put the faith of Jesus and his teachings to work in this world. You will be happier and will see glimpses of the Kingdom of God in the present world. We don't have to wait but actively bring it to this world by our actions and compassion for others. The problem with the news is it usually just brings us all the bad news but very seldom do we see the good in the world. That does not make the news. Show your love for Jesus by bringing his Kingdom to this world. We are children of God and our Father wants to use us for his purpose here on earth as it is in Heaven. To help usher in the Kingdom of God. It is happening whether we help bring it about or fight against it. The Kingdom is busting out all around us if we have eyes to see.

Ali,
Your verse from the Koran is consistent with the teachings of Jesus. Jesus came to glorify God and bring his truth to the masses instead of the elite Pharisees and Sadducees. To break through the veil that kept the masses enslaved. To go directly to our Father as children of the most high. We have more in common and your verses help us all understand how much we have in common. To me it is not a game but a searching for the truth in all the religions of the world.

FF,
We need not fear about the coming end of this world of greed and corruption. Those of the Light and Truth know these things need to happen. Our priorities have been wrong and what is transpiring now has to take place. Whether the government wants us to spend and go into debt with more consumer spending we must resist it and live within our means. The earth can not sustain the continued material spending and it must come to an end with all realizing there is only a limited amount of resources left. In the end we will be happier.

(Pursuing Truth: Good suggested article and the interesting comments that went with it)

Prophecies are not carved in stone events, which have the predictability of a B-Grade movie, but are timelines or scenarios that will come to pass should the current trends and paths continue unchanged. Just like road signs, they indicate a danger ahead, but not what the precise consequences of ignoring them will be. Road signs do not depict horrific crashes and destroyed bodies ahead, but simply say for instance ‘Road Ends’. What we do with the information is our responsibility, and it is not a foregone conclusion that we will meet our demise on the road ahead. It would not be prudent for the authorities to omit such warnings and allow traffic to plow headlong into dangerous situations, but neither are warning signs a reason to panic. By making the appropriate corrections to our course, we can avert unpleasant situations entirely. Often we find ourselves hurtling past the warnings, and need to slam on the brakes, but as long as we see the danger in time, we can still avoid catastrophe. This is the situation with Mr. Bush and family, where we almost skidded off the road at the last moment, but were able to keep the situation in check. Just because we sent this tiny Texas Longhorn and his horrid lineage back to the fake ranch to ruminate over their stupidity doesn’t in any way mean they weren’t the actual Antichrist. The word Antichrist is at best only a buzzword to label a prolonged conspiracy to subjugate the planet to dark interests, and the Bushes were merely its agents and interlopers. It is wrong to assume that because this attack was thwarted, and ended with a whimper, that the next in line is automatically called to dark duty. It took the Bush family the better part of the 20th century to ensconce themselves in the seat of Earthly power, who knows how long this generational preparation thing had been going on before they burst onto the public scene. This power grab was engineered by some pretty clever devils, and many other factors (banking, wealth, assassinations, media manipulations…etc.) came into play before these puppets were ready to dance. It seems inconceivable that the same devilish conspirators could also see that the product of an impoverished Kenyan and a nobody from Kansas should be their next ideal front man. In light of the ham handed manner this last coup was perpetrated, is seems unlikely that such a nuanced and elegant plan B existed. Those who would fall for such faulty logic, and think that Mr. O has no ability to resist a psychic attack directed his way, should look into buying the Brooklyn Bridge, because it is for sale… you know!

Hi everyone

Indeed God is good. Annon is back. I can't wait to see the video because if you say it is very interesting, it must be well worth the time. Glad you're back, really glad.

I do not think crash of flight 3407 was a coincidence, and some reporting from two different segments stated that the plane crashed 6 miles from its' destination and the anti-iceing gear was turned on 11 minutes after takeoff...a couple of their favorite numbers. Right now the 911 widow/activist's name escapes me, but if accurate, she refused the government payoff and had brought a lawsuit against the government. She was a thorn in their side.

I don't think it is a coincidence that Russian and American satellites collided either. It is being reported that it is believed to be this debris that is now falling over parts of Texas. What a terrible danger.

I don't think it is a coincidence that pilot Snellenberger stated that he 'was not praying to God' during the landing on the Hudson and that the man very rarely blinked his eyes during the interview and why it took so long for him to make an appearance, but I have no idea what it was all about. I heard it reported that 'people needed a miracle' and this was one.

I don't think it's a coincidence that Israel is talking about attacking Iran before the holiest time of year for Christians and that Israel has no government currently. The Jewish holy days didn't stop them from attacking Gaza. It is also interesting that we are accusing Iran of assisting Afghanistan.

It is strange that Congress did not get to read the stimulus bill because of the pending 'immediate threat' to the failing economy and now that it has passed, there are allegedly gun control issues that might make some people very nervous. This could be the cause of some civil arrest if people think they are going to lose their guns. Take away other rights, but not that one.

The timeline for negotiations with Iran seems to have been outdone by Iran's advanced uranium enrichment program even while Obama appeases with speeches about talking and negotiating with Iran...this is not by chance either. Sounds like Israel has no reservations about starting it:

http://informationclearinghouse.info/article21987.htm

I leave you with words from Zechariah vs. 7-11:

7Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.

8For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

9For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.

10Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.

11And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.

Keep singing and rejoicing...
Love and peace in His holy name.

More from Zechariah 12:7-8

7The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.

8In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

Bubble Economy 2.0: The Financial Recovery Plan from Hell

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=12265

faithful forever said...

A survey recently conducted revealed the majority of people favored investigations into crimes of the Bush administration, but the Obama administration does not.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29225492

The G7 have recently just held another meeting on the economic crisis.

Did anyone see Michelle Obama's picture on Vogue giving the 'El Diablo' hand sign?

A storm is 'pounding' Los Angeles and San Francisco with snow and rain, and Columbia had a volcanic eruption that caused 8,000 people to have to be evacuated.

The first surge of 3,000 troops in Afghanistan were met with combat and Obama will soon announce how many more are going.

All the recent talk of the skies and the Heavens with bright objects visible over Austin, reports that there are 'hundreds' of Earth planets in the Milky Way Galaxy (that surely have life), the space program's debris pollution encircling the entire plant and movies from Hollywood about aliens that look like you and me. Fact is always stranger than fiction and fiction is pretty strange!

What an appropriate title, Anonymous; 'The Financial Recovery Plan from Hell.' They are already saying it will still get worse before it gets better. They don't even know how true of a statement that is - just not for them. They know it will get worse because this is their plan. Another large transfer of wealth at the poor man's expense while they want us to believe they have our best interest in mind.

The war in Afghanistan is the build up to the war with Iran and it sounds like little time will be wasted in the advancement. It seems like there is a big push on and you have to wonder just how short their time grows.

Be of good courage and keep marching. The truth is marching with us and it is bounding out everywhere for all to see. What an amazing time. That great and awful day of the Lord is approaching...

Love and prayers to all.

The world bank at athe G7 meeting reports that one hundred million people worldwide will be pushed into poverty and the economy is the greatest threat to humanity even more than terrorism. Courtesy of DemocracyNow! also. Go Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales. Eastern Europe is said to be going down fast.

Kansas is also nearing bankruptcy like California and suspending income tax refunds and warning that it does not have enough funds to meet payroll. It will not take long for panic to set in. Sure is a changing world.

http://www.yaledailynews.com/articles/view/27775

faithful forever said...

Hi Anonymous,

Normally it would be innocent until proven guilty, but where the Bush family is concerned, you can surely bet on their guilt. I hope Geranimo's great grandson is successful in his attempt to right this horrible wrong, but most likely he too will have to wait for infinite justice. I admire his courage for surely he knows what he is up against - a gigantic monster with never-ending tentacles, like the article posted by pursuing truth. If you haven't looked into the background of Prescott Bush, I guarantee you would find it of great interest.

Just the fact that we are now openly discussing this long-standing organization of Skull and Bones, of which neither Kerry or Bush felt compelled to deny its' existence or their membership into such, is of no small revelation. It has been a heavily guarded secret for a very long time.

If you have some extra time, research the Ashkenazi Khazars for a more complete picture of those who call themselves Jews and what is going on in our world today.

Currently, the Holy Bible is right on track with everything that is happening. Just as He foretold and this is why we can find comfort in what we are witnessing. People want to think things will recover in time as they always have, but the Bible tells us that one day this world passes away - it does not continue forever...I sing and rejoice again. How amazing is our God.

Please post any follow-up articles you come across as I am very interested although it makes me yearn a little more for our sister Sandra.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

Look how incredibly wrong we have gone in 100 relatively short years.

George W. Bush's birthplace is New Haven, CT.

1 Thessalonians 1-10 (King James Version)

1 Thessalonians 1
1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
3Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
4Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
5For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
6And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost.
7So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.

8For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.
9For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
10And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Amen.
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord for all He has done and His promises yet to come.

Be of good courage.

...and what a roaring it will be Annon. Imagine witnessing this battle. I too wait with great anticipation and yearning tempered with patience and complete faith that He is in control. This is how we can watch the storm and not fear, but recognize and acknowledge the birthing pains are getting closer and closer and closer. The quickening is bringing us closer to that great and awful day of the Lord. The words of 'great and awful day' have so many dimensions, but in short I believe it means it will be just that - awful for His enemies but great for His believers. Watching the storm gives comfort because our hearts are not troubled by what we are seeing just as you have said, anonymous. Indeed He prepares us even now. Of this you can be sure. I give thanks and praise to our Savior.

The economy, and control of it, is an excellent aspect of the root of all evil for it is certainly being used for such. They will be content for a while to let the world bleed itself out and when it can barely be contained any longer, bring in the NWO that many will side with for blindedness and perceived safety. It is all calculated, and if the following story is true, gives a deeper understanding of the crash of the economy and an exact time period of 7 years from 9/11/01 to 9/11/08. It even allegedly took place between the hours of 9-11:00 in the morning:

WARNING:

FOR SOME THIS MIGHT BE DIFFICULT TO DIGEST

Abstract:

The Achaemenids (The most famous Persian dynasty known for its so-called civilization) were the military wing of Jews for enabling them reorganize and revitalize Jerusalem and annihilate regional civilizations so they could live in their region in peace of mind. Iranian professor revisits Iranian history.

Conclusion:

Hundreds of thousand were sacrificed by Persian army to secure the Jewish community. The Jews inserted fabrications into history (in return of the Persian favor) and kept this as secret. Much of the history we know today, thus is a mere fabrication. period.

No civilization, No Persepolis, No Glorious Persian Civilization! They have scientific & historical evidences gained through on-location research. In fact, Islam brought up civilization to Iran! And this is very true.

A lot of people are living in that fear, anonymous, who do not know Jesus. I do not think there are any here who fear what is coming because we know that the Lord is coming as He tells us so in the Holy Bible. Much as the Church of the Philadelphians was spared in 70 AD, so will His body be now.

Israel is lobbing missiles into Israel and blaming Lebanon just as it does with Gaza.

This world is smoldering and there is no denying it any longer. Watching it be set on fire in the physical world completes the picture as a whole and makes the spiritual unfolding easier to understand...or is it the other way around? Most definitely the other way around, but I hope you know what I am trying to say.

One day at a time is what the Lord says...our daily bread and there are no guarantees for tomorrow. He truly does set us free...all His words are true. Rejoice and be thankful for today and the blessings it holds for the Lord is good always.

When you fear, you can be easily betrayed and the enemy knows this very well, thus the mongering for it. Thus our rejection of it, but Jesus tells us to remain watchful. His peace that is beyond all our understanding is blessing His people right now and preparing them to help those who are lost during the coming tribulation. We will have much work to do in His name and I suspect it is going to be the most rewarding work ever experienced.

Indeed, Ali, we need to let go of everything that ~they~ have ever told us. I would just like to say that there has to be a definite distinction made between sephardic Jews and those who say they are Jews. Those who say they are Jews and are not are the Synagogue of Satan and are called Zionists today but are the ancient people, Ashkenazi Khazars, that are wreaking havoc in the world today and have been 'behind' every major event in history and since governments have been corrupt since the beginning, it is most likely these are the people who Iran assisted. They called themselves Jews to give His people a bad, really bad, name. It is all by design and it is all coming to light. But nonetheless they believe the lie that they are chosen by God to take over nations and rule with an iron rod. They also believe they are almost there evidenced by their current frenzy.

Bank of America caused it's own problems by buying Merle Lynch and Countrywide Financial Corp. They made bad purchases and than wanted the taxpayers to bail them out. They got the money in the bailout now they are complaining. They owe the taxpayers.

Bank of America is part of the beastly system. The whole financial network is part of the beastly system. They just don't want to give up their power and want to contiue to make huge profits on the backs of the poor who got stuck in mortgages that they could not afford. It is all about money and greed. They wanted the bail out and took it now they are complaining because they might not be able to horde their profits for the few. Don't have any sympathy over any bank who choose profits over people.

Nathandave,
Thank you for the link. I just got done watching the whole thing. The message is timely. People need to stand by each other and stop profiting off each other. Awaken to the realization that we need to be humanitarian based not economically based. We need to stop supporting the economically system and get out of it. To stay centered and help others in their awakening. For me that is centered on the teachings of Jesus. For another it might be something else but awaken we must for all of humanity. The time is NOW.

Anonymous,
I also believe the banking system is part of the beastly system. To not get caught up in their web of control by going into debt with the system because they will control you. Freedom comes from being debt free to this worldly system.

Regarding the Bank of America, my point was why are they now refusing to take the bailout money? With all the talk of BoA and Citicorp being nationalized, what difference does it make if they do or do not take the money if they are just going to be taken over by the govt anyway within 60 days. I would never have any sympathy for an earthly organization, but God changes hearts, and if the CEO of Bank of America is resisting the beast and fighting back in some way, I would rejoice in that.

They have created the perfect storm and have every intention of furthering the agenda in a timely calculated way, but they are already defeated.

How amazing is our God. Come Lord Jesus, come.
