This was meant to be a comment..

..but it was too long I guess so it wasn't allowed, and I didn't want to lose it, so this was the solution. My apologies for that.

I am enjoying the discussion and comments as well. A pleasant surprise to see you here, Dublin Mick and thanks for stopping in. I stop in at Visible's site regularly and enjoy your contributions and perspectives.

Regarding the discussion of Jesus' Second Coming and whether this miraculous event has already taken place. After Jesus was persecuted and crucified, He rose three days later and ministered on the earth in His glorified body for forty days to His disciples and many others as well as a crowd of 500 of which some of were asleep (didn't believe), and when the time arrived, He ascended into clouds to Heaven. I hope we can agree this far. The Bible says that in the same way Jesus was witnessed leaving the earth is the same way we will see Him return:

Acts 1:10-11 (King James Version)

10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

The disciples were taught and proclaimed that the Kingdom of God is at hand; very near because God in all His infinite wisdom and love for His creation wants to be sought after sooner rather than later. Most people are likely to take a matter more seriously if they believe something is imminent rather than later. We are to live each day as if it is the day that He will return because nobody knows but the Father. Which comes into the point of Jesus being God, or god of lesser substance. If nobody but the Father knows the hour of Jesus' physical return, then how can they be of the same entity. All things are possible with God and Jesus is God. The miracles He performed and the prophecy He fulfilled should be enough to substantiate His words (His words are sufficient enough for me), but surely to deny His works is to deny His deity. The best way I can put it into words is one God in different forms, and Jesus questioned Philip about not knowing who He is in John 14:9 :

9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

...and the Jews accepted Jesus as the Son of God, but when He claimed equality with the Father, they wanted Him killed:

John 5:18 (King James Version)

18Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

Dave, the verse 5 of Revelation 1, I believe John is speaking of those the Lord had blessed to spread His message and rewarding and exalting them by making them kings and priests. We can walk as boldly as the disciples, as we should always be doing, and what is it you feel can be or should be done in order to destroy evil once and forever, and inherit the earth? I would just like to say that only God can make things new, and to inherit this world without the Lord Jesus making it new again, I wouldn't want to inherit it.

Thank you for giving me the chance to share my faith and my love for Jesus, complete man and complete God. How amazing is He. The Savior of the world and lover of your soul. Praise His holy name and give Him thanks. Stay blessed and keep looking up. For He is coming and it will be amazing.

I come in peace, too, Sandra! Hey, is Yakima still on fire? My state made the news today for missing radioactive material from the local hospital...but they don't think it was stolen, but they don't know. Yep, they walk among us! I ask because my sister who is visiting from Washington told me that Yakima is agricultural and it is very unusual to have a fire there. Dublin Mick knows that millions of seedlings were just mysteriously destroyed in Australia, and was thinking that maybe the fire is another attack on the food chain could possibly be taking place. Thinking out loud...probably shouldn't do that.

South America is having a snowstorm on one side and hundreds of penguins washing up dead on shores on the other side. Baby birds are falling dead out of their nests here (I have seen 3 in two days), possibly due to the extreme heat; others are leaving:

Great discussion,

What if there really is no evil, just the bad consequences of our really bad choices? Now hear me out, because the comment section on a blog will leave me open to be misinterpretated (as Bush would say).

Evil presents us Christians with some real problems because we believe God is Love. Well, if God is love, he could not have deliberately created evil, then he would be evil as well as good. Second, if God is love, then why is there evil? It should not exist. Free choice is not an adequate explanation, because a loving God would not have allowed evil to exist as a real substance, opposite from Love. If it did, then God is not omnipotent, but is subject to evil's power. The only possible explanation we have is that God allows certain consequences to happen to us as a natural "punishment" for what we would call bad choices, and this is what we call evil. God is a parent (Father) and disciplines us in accordance with our choices, but only in such a way as to make us better, and to help us grow, as a loving parent would do. Sometimes, God has to have an intervention and let us know he is serious. We may be living in just such times now.

What am I saying? Well for one, Christians are not charged with destroying evil as if it is a force which exists out there and separate from God, because no such force exists. That is a crusade mentality, and is mistaken. What we call evil, the bad result of our bad choices, will always exist as long as we continue to make bad decisions. As long as we elevate the ego, as long as we project evil "out there" as if we never participate in it, and as long as we wait for a world where we never have to make decisions, then we will be deceived and the situation will worsen, making us believe that evil is a powerful force that must be destroyed. Then of course, as human beings, we will scapegoat someone or some group as being responsible for the mess we have all made, and there will be a collosal blood letting (like todays war on terror) which then assuages our guilt, and places it on the enemy. The pattern has been repeated for centuries, with terrible results.

Jesus calls us to break these patterns, and to realize once and for all that he was victorious. Christians have power, real power to break strongholds, to give sight to the blind, to help the dumb to speak, etc. These are deep symbols, meaning the results of our bad choices can be overcome when God's people rise up and make them right. God did not call us to be prophets of doom, but rays of light. Right now, right here.

There's no off topic here, Dublin Mick. I have a relative in Sarasota who acts like nothing is happening, so for me you are a very refreshing change from that because there is a lot happening in the Gulf. God is the same no matter where we are and I know He is with you. Thanks for keeping us better informed. What the heck is going on, do you think?

Sandra said...

Dave,

Jesus did say "Why do you see the speck in your brothers eye and not the log in your own" and I do believe that before we judge anyone we must first remove the log in our eye so we can more clearly see the speck in the other person that we are quick to judge. I do agree that people do tend to project out to others what we don't like in ourselves and conflicts arise. As far as evil goes I do believe it exists because of the rejection of God and his commandments. The commandments of loving God takes up the first 4 commandments and the last 6 is about loving your neighbor. Those that say they love God but go around doing evil to their neighbor have started on the path of destruction.

Let us sow seeds of peace, love, compassion and justice. I choose to be a light bearer and not a prophet of doom. Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. It starts here in each one of us and we bring that to our families, community and nation. Jesus calls us to go against the establishment and pave a new way. To me the gospel of Jesus is to be taken seriously.. There is so much BS on the internet and I take it with a grain of salt. The Glenn Pecks of the world will be exposed eventually.

Don't underestimate the "voice of the people" like they say it is the voice of God.

Sandra said...

Dublin Mick,

On your blog you have the following quote:

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you….Nietzsche………….

That is why I do not go to the dark side. It is not what I am about. Others might have the gift to report on it but I do think we need to be careful because we can become like the monster we are trying to expose. Just my thoughts. I know about the nuclear option it was reported back in May in Mother Jones and hopefully it has been dismissed. If not we are definitely in for trouble.

I really don't live in a fantasy world. You do remember the blog that was just dismissed this week against Shirley Sherrod. Breitbart lied on his blog because he only showed part of Sherrod's speech that made her look like a racist. All the media fell for it including her boss and the White House. Now he is back peddling and saying it was to show that the NACCP is racist.

Dave Wilcox said...

Gulf oil spill is a further example of worldly power being exposed by Christ as illegitimate.

Not to be a prophet of doom(and not take my own advice!) but this scenario could very well happen if Christians and others of good will do not rise up to claim a voice and a say in what is going on. The economy will be further impacted by this oil spill. Our economy, because it is credit dependent, needs dollars flowing in and out, which is why interest rates are so low. This will entice folks to buy property and keep banks lending which will create another housing bubble, hopefully giving people the confidence to further borrow for home repairs, vacations, etc. However, it will not completely work.

Fact is, all the jobs are overseas. As a result, the US has become, for all intents and purposes, a service based economy-retail, food, etc and those jobs don't pay and are more likely to be given to immigrant workers. Soon, these jobs will dry up in the Gulf, and there will be ripple effects throughout all of the south, eventually effecting the whole country. Remember, there are lots of industries who depend on fishing, tourism, restraunts, etc for their livelihood. This oil spill is a huge problem.

Thanks for the great site, Mick. got it in my favorites. The more truth the better.

Maybe the way one sees what is going on in the world is based upon the desire of one's heart. I desire nothing more than the return of the Lord. I am thankful for the Holy Spirit that lives in me, but I desire His physical return as well; just as it is written. It does not mean doom to me...that's all I can say about that. This current system of things is a doomed system and it is breathing its' last breaths right now. For that, I am thankful as well.

Two ships from Lebanon are on their way to Gaza. One ship reportedly has women and the other only journalists. A ship from the States is being organized called 'the audicity of hope.' And I'm not sure what to think about that:

http://jta.org/news/article/2010/07/21/2740136/amreicans-organize-ship-to-join-flotilla-to-gaza

One day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.

Dave Wilcox said...

Truckers will get laid off or lose contracts, food suppliers will close retail outlets, more workers will be sent to the unemployment rolls, further stressing out the federal debt. The tea party movement, with its somewhat militant view of the government, and with an increasingly paranoid US population which is sitting and awaiting the NWO to take over, one could invision a scenario where the you-know-what hits the fan and the US south and west become like Beriut in the 1980's, or Somalia in the 1990's. Americans are stressed out, have been fed fear 24/7 by the media since 9-11 2001, and are armed to the teeth.

Global society is interconnected, If the US falls, the world will follow. There will likely be no war, but there could be a complete collapse of this global behemoth. That very well could happen, and we need to be ready for that.

Sandra said...

Dave,
I am ready and not stressed out at all. If it is going to happen I think living on my property on the Rez is the best place for me. My people have gone through so much with this government since the beginning that we have learned to survive on very little. I am not worried about what comes because I believe God will be the victor and he is waking up his people. Now is the time to put the teachings of Jesus Christ into practice.

Dave Wilcox said...

Amen Sandra,

Not sure what you all think of Russell Means(he can be controversial), but I think he is offering some good advice here.

FF,
Your were given a gift of looking at all the evil being done in the world. I am afraid I have not been given that gift. Some of the links made me sick and I had to get out of there for the evil was too much for me. My gift I believe is to sound the alarm on getting out of debt and this beastly system. To throw off the shackles of debt that binds you to the system. Once you are out of the system and no longer participate in funding corp America you are free and the system will eventually dissolve. Too many owe there soul to corp America and are contributing to the destruction of this planet. We were all given gifts and I hope you understand I was not putting down those who are exposing the corruption. That was not my intent.

Dave,
I know Russell Means and I am friends with his first cousin. Russell has even exposed the corruption within his own tribe years ago. I admired him for that because it was true but the news media took the side against him and his AIM members to side with the corrupt tribal counsel.

Lets agree we all have gifts from the creature and we are all in this together to stamp out the evil by having the truth spread that this world is on a collision course and sound the alarm.

Thanks for reading...

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord Jesus.

The problem is there not enough emphasis put on that man wearing a robe and sandals who died on the cross to save all and still He is rejected. Please tell me you are not comparing Project Blue Beam to Jesus' Second Coming.

Concerning evil and whether it exists or not:

Isaiah 45:7 (King James Version)

7I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

It is very real; make no mistake and the depravation of evil is beyond our understanding.

Faith:

Hebrews 11
1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Sandra, no offense taken. Please accept my apology for having offended your sensibilities.

Sandra said...

FF,
No apologies needed my sister in Christ. I was just trying to explain why I can not focus my attention on all the evil in the world because it is not my gift. Actually when you break it all down it is all about money and possessions anyway. That is why Jesus said we can not serve two masters. God and Money. My gift is to wake people up to the illusion of what the system is doing to them. It is enslaving them to the beastly system. Living a simple life and realizing our needs are not what the advertisers are attempting to make us believe will bring happiness. We have all been given gifts depending on what we can handle spiritually.

Paul uses a wonderful and telling phrase: "I no longer live, but Christ lives in me" (Galatians 2:20). It is a radically different sense of self that he is trying to describe. Until I have come to that realization myself, I have not been transformed, spiritually speaking. Contemplative prayer draws us to our True Self, who we are "hidden with Christ in God" as Paul says in Colossians 3:3. This is the only self that actually exists. We came forth from God and our deepest DNA is divine. Once we realize this we take seriously the teachings of Jesus and throw off our ego and walk his path not our ego's path.

I am not sure but I think Dublin Mick was saying alot of Chrisitans will be fooled by project Blue Beam which will attempt to project an image of Jesus that the world will see if some of the blogs are correct and the blogs have been warning against falling for it. Maybe Dublin can further explain it.

Dublin,
I have read the Essenes Gospels and have no problem with them but I do believe there is truth in the Bible. There is enough in there that if you really search you will find his truth because the spirit of Christ within will be your guide. Actually Jesus was very much a liberal in his teachings which the churches have watered down.

I also have the teachings of my people who have taught that we are to take care of Mother Earth and to not take more than you need. I see no conflict with that and the teachings of Christ. Today so many of my native people are involved in the consumer culture. I remember an incident that happen a few years ago in which a spokesman for the tribe was being interviewed by a t.v. newsreporter and he was showing land that was full of life with trees and wildlife. He told the reporter that the tribe will never develop the land because of our love for God's (Creator's) world. Well that went by the wayside when gambling hit the reservations. They raped (sorry but that is what I call it) the land to put up the Casino. Now the tribe is in debt to a bank and so many on the reservation are worshipping the golden calf of gambling and caught up in the love of money. Traditional teachings have gone by the wayside and they are caught in the trap of this whole beastly system.

We might not be on the same page yet but I do enjoy your discusson on this blog. And please don't think I am in a Alice in Wonderland world. I know what is going on. Sometimes we label people without walking a mile in their shoes and maybe the comment section here gave you that impression. Speaking up for God and what is happening in this world is what we are here for. We all have different gifts. In my humble opinion we are to go forth with the power of God and speak up on what is going in this world and to show through our actions a different path.

Dublin,
I know that the tribes are just trying to survive in the Babylonian system but so many have decided they want the American Dream which is turning out to be a nightmare. Tribal members are indebted to the beastly system now and like the rest of society have gone overboard on their debt. It is having an effect on the community. We as Indian people were given the gift of stewardship of Mother Earth and I was taught to live simple and take care of Mother Earth which is being destroyed by greed. Corporations are polluting our planet and lobbying to lessen regulations. The link on the new oil leak is just the tip of the iceberg in my opinion. I am a voice crying in the wilderness to my people but they are not interested...some of the elders and traditionalists are trying to warn the Tribe to slow down on their construction projects.

FF,
Wow those pictures of natures rage were amazing. Wonder if people will wake up to realize all their possessions can be gone in an instant so buying into the American Dream is not all it is cracked out to be. Better to live our life with as few possessions as we can...

I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. Have a good day....♥♥♥

Probe into the role of Federal Regulations in bed with BP and other companies. Wonder if these are hangover from the Bush Administration. Remember during Bush's terms he lessen regulations on the oil industry. Bush was our oil president and Obama did not clean house in the agencies in my humble opinion. He is to blame too. "Drill Baby Drill" was the mantra during elections. They will probably white wash this probe because Corporations rule Babylon. Destroyers of our planet for greed....I am so angry. People need to wake up but I have my doubts because they have bought into this whole Babylon system..

Sandra, you are such a blessing. Indeed people are blinded by many things but we must keep planting seeds regardless and time is growing short. The destroyers of our earth are also destroying souls. Satan desires to take as many with him as he possibly can. God will make things new again as only He can. Back to paradise with greater things in store for us than we can even imagine.

Human rights violations continue in the Gulf of Mexico region. MSNBC's Keith Olbermann reports that environmental scientists testified to Congress that dispersants, particularly, Corexit, only hides evidence by reducing oil's visibility of the magnitude of the leak's ongoing damage while poisoning people breathing it off-shore and near-shore.

FF,
Thanks for your words of encouragement. Evil does want to corrupt and get as many souls as it can and to deceive the masses. So many people don't do research on what is reported. We are to be as wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove. We need to seek the truth for it will set us free from the matrix of confusion and this Babylon system. There is so much information out there but the spirit of Christ will guide us into all truth. I get a lot of emails from friends that send information that they think is true that they have gotten from friends. They then forward it to me and their friends. I don't just accept it as truth until I do research and than I get back to them if the article is untrue. They know I will do the research and appreciate it when I bring it to their attention but wonder why they don't research it before sending it on to others. Too many accept an untruth without checking the facts. A lie can go around the world before truth gets up..

"I no longer live, but Christ lives in me"

faithful forever said...

Hey my sister. That saying is so true about the truth, and the saying from a movie 'you can't handle the truth' all comes into play. It is a blessing that you do the research for them...the workers are few. Remind them to 'test the spirits' as well as doing the research. The truth is written on every one of our hearts, but we don't know how to read them anymore, if we ever even did know how. There is a lot of work to be done for certain. It's an exciting time though because people are a little more apt to listening to the truth according to the only word that matters, His. Most seem to reject Him still for some other God that suits their fancy and their understanding more, but there is only one that performed miracles on the earth and came from the Highest of places to die for all. Why go anywhere else? I know there are many answers to that question and I get that not all will be saved, but part of me just cannot see why people don't accept Him. When we truly are dead and Christ lives within us, everything is so much easier and joyous. Life more abundant with an increase in the fruits of the spirit...the true riches of the world.

You are shining, Sandra, and may He continue to shine His face upon you, my tender-hearted, beautiful sister in Christ. Keep reading the Bible and He will show you everything and you will not be afraid to look for you will know how protected in Him you really are.

This Corexit - the name says it all. De-population is the name of their game and I believe we are told that it is allowed for a third of the people to be destroyed. We are in for rough waters (pun intended), but we are not without a paddle and I don't want to miss a thing. Whether people are paying attention or not does not matter, it is still happening and this system of things will be brought down. Far better days ahead indeed.

Love and peace to all.

Adrian Salbuchi comes to us from South America and is a self-proclaimed 'true believer' and brings an important message in this youtube video; much of what Sandra is saying:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCso8tsXL1o

Sandra said...

FF,
Excerpt from the link below:

Revelation 18 reveals this end-time entity with power over “all nations” (verse 3) will be an alliance of the “merchants of the earth” (verses 3, 11 and 15) and the “kings of the earth” (verses 3 and 9). In other words, it will be an alliance of global, multinational corporations and the political leaders of many nations. It gives this end-time “beast” power a name: “Babylon the Great.” This name indicates that this globally dominant power in the end time will be dominated by the institutions invented in ancient Babylon. These institutions included capitalism, banking, etc. In the latter-days, the capitalistic system of ancient Babylon will grow “great” as it spreads its power over all nations. Has this already happened? Of course it has. The entire world is already dominated by global capitalism, and the enslaving power of debt is gradually bringing “all kindreds, tongues and nations” under its control.

Read Revelation 18’s description of Babylon the Great. It enslaves men even as it markets all manner of merchandise to the world’s nations. However, the leaders of both the “merchants of the earth” (verse 3) and the governmental leaders (verse 9) are “waxed rich” as they live “deliciously.” The leaders of global corporations are “waxed rich” in modern times as political leaders arrange global “free trade” agreements which allow the global corporations to become wealthy even as the people of the world are reduced to serfs. Consider the inexorable effects of free trade agreements: Many workers in China and undeveloped nations toil in sweat shops as virtual slaves, producing goods for the wealtheir nations of Babylon the Great. Workers in developed nations are increasingly laid off from good jobs as manufacturing facilities are relocated to foreign nations. Much of America’s industrial base has been effectively “stolen” by foreign nations as the “merchants of the earth” enrich themselves by making their products at slave labor wage rates in other nations instead of the normal wage rates in the Western world.

http://www.stevenmcollins.com/html/what_kind_of_captivity.html

Personally my belief is that we are living in Babylon and must get out of it by paying off our debts and if you can not afford something to do without it until you can. Living within your means and stop being tempted through advertising to acquire more and more. Our planet is suffering because of the greed of the people. Advertisers are satans tool to get us to buy..Jesus faced the temptation in the desert and overcame power and greed and we can do it too. It will not make you happy. Only a return to God and his holyness will bring us peace.

Dublin,
Since men have been in control of the planet for all of it's history I find it ironic that enlightened people still use the word "whore" to describe what is going on and not "pimp" to describe what is going on....just my little take on your link....I know even in the Bible it refers to "whore" but it was men who wrote the Bible and had control of what was put in it.

Too many have been turned off to Jesus because of how Christianity was given to the world. Now they have thrown Jesus out with the dirty (christianity) water. You can bet that Jesus will clean house when he comes and he is going to be mad as hell at what was done in his name. Just my humble opinion....

Too many people wanting Jesus to solve their problems for them when they should be working on the problems themselves.

If Jesus is in us then he should be solving the problems also.

Fixations on division of human sexuality are a primary goal of the Tavistock institute. They are also in direct opposition to the two highest forms of energy in the universe negative and positive. The medieval mystics knew this, hence tantra.

And if you would know God be not therefore a solver of riddles.
Rather look about you and you shall see Him playing with your children.
And look into space; you shall see Him walking in the cloud, outstretching His arms in the lightning and descending in rain.
You shall see Him smiling in flowers, then rising and waving His hands in trees.....Kahlil Gibran

Sandra said...

Dublin,
When you have whistleblowers going against the government or company to report on what is really going on within Corp America or the Government that to me is the Christ conscience working in people to expose the truth. Too many are afraid to come forth to expose truth because of worrying about losing their job. That is why people are enslaved to the system through debt. When you are free from the system your Christ conscience can not be compromised and if wrong is done you are more willing to express it and let the chips fall where they will. We can not serve two masters..

Myself I coordinated the tribes in Washington State in their fishing battles with the state to uphold the treaties....of course the state fought it all the way to the Supreme court but in the end the tribes won...we all have our gifts but we are here to serve and not to be served. I was a servant to the tribes and it was the tribes that won that battle...thank the Lord. ♥♥♥

Hi all,

I was away for a week on vacation, just got back. Great discussion.

I think that what I was attempting to argue for was a more proactive approach among those who feel called to spread the alarm, because what the world becomes is determined to a large degree by what we make of our own lives. Fear is a powerful weapon, but Jesus said do not fear for I have overcome the world. What are we to make of this? Is this purely symbolic or did it really happen?

The NWO will not succeed. Soon people will begin to refuse to follow the orders of the elites and their political puppets, having tired of the hypocrisy. Obama is trying to save the old system and keep it from a catastrophic collapse, but collapse it will and
when it does the you know what will hit the fan. There is evidence to suggest that natural disasters may accompany this, leading to a world wide panic. I ask you, if you have not prepared yourself to totally depend on God, how will you survive? How long can you hoard food, seeds, and generate power with makeshift generators? Eventually, something will go wrong. But his children will be protected.

Dublin Mick, I know why you do not trust Christianity, but forget the church and focus on the master. The church system is under God's judgment, and will be replaced by something else, something better. It is good to seek answers, but the internet is full of the speculations and doctrines of men. It only seeks to keep people from unfolding the Christ within, which is our destiny as children of God.
The apocalypse is big business, and many cash in on it every day. There is no power on heaven or earth that can stand up to Christ, but as long as we refuse to unfold this power in our lives, it remains dormant.

Thanks all, and blessings.

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Amen and how awesome and loving is our God. There are so many Bible verses that repeat 'wait on the Lord' that surely it is an important message. While we wait, our dependence upon Him grows and we learn to trust Him more. God is working all things for the good for those who love Him, even in tribulation whether it be personal or worldwide, God knows everything we need before we need it and faith believes it will be provided. We are free in ways we never should be even while in our fallen state. Praise Jesus and give Him thanks for all He has done, is doing and all that is to come. But this does not mean we don't have to do anything, it means more responsibility that is not to be taken lightly.

James 1:22 (KJV)

22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Welcome back Dave and thank you for giving us the link...so peaceful and meanful. Here is a couple of quotes that I thought I would share:

It is as if God the Father is saying to us: "Since I have told you everything in My Word, Who is My Son, I have no other words that can at present say anything or reveal anything to you beyond this. Fix your eyes on Him alone, for in Him I have told you all, revealed all, and in Him you will find more than you desire or ask. If you fix your eyes on Him, you will find everything, for He is My whole word and My reply, He is My whole vision and My whole revelation. --Anthony M. Coniaris

The message of Christ is not Christianity. The message of Christ is Christ. --Gary Amirault

I have to say I am finding the company and discussion a great blessing, and I would love to hear from our young brother and others too. Ah, the good ol' days! Looks like wild horses would have to drag me away. Just trying to do what I feel led to do; trying to give what has been given to me...joy and hope in the Lord. This is all about Him. Finally, at long last and while I wait patiently and longingly, I am a child waiting with great anticipation for my Father to arrive. In the meantime, there is joy in the waiting all the while serving Him with all our heart, mind and soul and I know with all my heart, mind and soul that His plan, as are all His ways, perfect.

The weather continues to parallel the birthing pains, and like birth pains, they are getting more intense. It is so amazing watching it unfold, and as dave once said long time ago, it will not take place the way any of us expect it to, for how can we know the mind of God. But He has told us what will take place at the time of the end of this system of things and we are indeed living in the end times. Dave is right - their modern day Tower of Babel now known as the NWO will not succeed. But in the meantime before the Lord destroys it, they are ruling our world with an iron fist and they are proceeding with their agenda which includes nothing good for those who they call the little people. God is preparing His people and He will not forsake us. We simply have to trust...like a child trusts. Our Father in Heaven loves us very much. He gave us Jesus.

Jesus. Perfect with no sin in Him yet He took on the sin of the whole world and is still rejected. My heart weeps even though my head understands this is to be the way of this world. For a little time yet, but soon...every knee will bow and every tongue confess.

Thank you for the gift, my brother Dave; it is beautiful. Know Jesus, and know peace even in this unpeaceful world. Praise His holy name now and forever.

Thanks for listening.

FF,
I know what you mean about Dave being a blessing to our discussion. Even though we might not always agree with each other there is one thing we do agree with and that is our love for the master and his teachings. All other issues will be worked out as we continue on our journey to the Father. What we have to remember is to approach new ways at looking at things with love and not hate. As Dave wrote to Dublin:
"The church system is under God's judgment, and will be replaced by something else, something better. It is good to seek answers, but the internet is full of the speculations and doctrines of men. It only seeks to keep people from unfolding the Christ within, which is our destiny as children of God." Amen to that Dave.

I also enjoy Dublin's comments even though I do not always agree. It does open my eyes to others point of view and helps me understand where others are coming from in their journey. In the end we all know this system is not in God's future.

My issue with some of the blogs (not all) is it stirs people up to anger and hate. Righteous anger is good for even Jesus displayed that in the Gospels but with anger they want you to hate. I refuse to hate even those who are destroying this world with greed and power. Hating brings us to their level which the enemy wants.

Thanks FF and Sandra. I have enjoyed this topic very much, and have learned much from you both over the years.

There's a saying that I have become quite fond of 'chew the meat and spit the bones out.' The first time I heard that, it rubbed me the wrong way a little bit, but in the pursuit of truth, this is the only way to approach all the information that is available in this final age, the age of technology. We are to guard our hearts and minds of which there is much to be on guard from. I am always open to listening, but I am not interested in anything that takes away or adds to the word of our Savior. When we stray from His word, we are more easily strayed. His word and His teachings are sufficient for me just exactly the way they are. I will not accept anything else. I see the widespread new age movement of watering down Jesus with eastern mysticisms and people loving the created more than the Creator, and so on and so forth and has been this way ever since His early church was first laid dead in the streets, possibly even before the deaths of all the disciples, but for a very long time now that we have been removed from solid Biblical teaching. God is now changing that for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see. His door is open to all but many times it seems more often than not, most are not interested in being pointed in the general direction of where the door is. Jesus is still rejected. Just as the time of Noe, many will be destroyed. It was only Noah and his family that were saved; one family on the whole earth that feared God; that belonged to God. Same as today, it will only be the family of God that will be saved. For me, give me Jesus or give me death. For without Jesus, I am dead already. Just as when the Lord said, 'Let the dead bury their dead.' There were those who desired to take care of their earthly tasks instead of following Jesus. I don't want to be counted among the dead, but the living and the only way to do that is through the Almighty Maker of Heaven and Earth, by whom all things were created for and by, Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Son of Man. There is no other god before Him, none, not one, no matter what is placed before us, there is only one Alpha and Omega.

This is all about Christ. And Jesus was all about the good news of the Kingdom of God. Where the streets are paved in gold and all suffering done away with forever.

Come Lord Jesus.

I posted this below and thought it was on here but don't see it so posting again. If it turns up I will delete this:

Agree that we must always be wise in dealing with other beliefs. The teachings of Christ do come alive in those who follow his ways and his spirit will guide you in all truth. I was given a video from a friend on "The Secret" and was asked to watch it. I did watch it but the message I got from it was "if" you believe this you will gain power and material wealth in this world. My Christ conscience rejected it and I was reminded about the temptation in the desert. Expressed that to my friend and although she rejected my views she respect what I had to say. Shortly after I watched this video an activity that was sponsored by the "Secret" organization was in the news. The link below will show you the Indian response to this tragedy. So in a sense I spit out the meat along with the bones in this instance. Did not want any part of their philosophy.

http://www.indiancountrytoday.com/opinion/64486777.html

New Agers try to take what is sacred of my people and exploit it for personal gain. The land is sacred to Natives and we respect it but we do not worship it. We take care of it because it is a gift from our creator. The christians who came here claimed we were worshipping the creation not the creator so we had to be "Christianized" and the land taken away because we were not exploiting it for personal gain but just using what we needed.


"I no longer live, but Christ lives in me"

faithful forever said...

Yep, the Lord tells us about portions and daily bread, but we have not heeded that message either. Your people knew and understood this and lived a more harmonious life because of it, and I believe they worshipped the "Great Spirit" in the sky. They were not the heathens and you are so right that God is angry about what has been done in His name. When a Lion strikes, it strikes swiftly. We know He will wipe away all the many rivers of tears and justice will prevail. I love you my Indian sister and your people. I see your people as a great people because their inner spirit was their guide. They knew how to listen to their heart AND they followed it. They didn't have the Bible but they didn't need it. God, the Great Spirit was providing and it was He whom they were thanking. Of course, there were bands of those who rebelled, but overall I see them as a peaceful, harmonious people who I would have loved to have belonged to before the bleeping, bloody pale faces arrived...those Masonic Christians who are not any more Christian than the devil. Soon it will all be history and there will be no more strangers among us.

Some people will want you to think the bones are meat, but only meat is the deep-down, the heart of the matter of truth that fulfills us and nourishes our souls. Likewise, bones will harm us. Those were all bones in that movie you watched and God has made you wise to see that. The DaVinci Code and others like it are a lot of bones too. If it is not Biblically sound doctrine, it is false doctrine. That's the way I see it and I can't be shaken. One or the other; either it is or it isn't. If we're not sure about something, the answer can be found in His word. Every time, without fail with complete and perfect accuracy.

Which brings me to the subject of reincarnation. I don't believe this belief of repetition (reincarnation) is Biblically sound doctrine, therefore I cannot believe in it. The link claims Jesus has been reincarnated and I am more confused about the belief because if I'm not mistaken, reincarnation is either a reward or a punishment for lessons learned or unlearned in a previous life, but Jesus was not an ordinary man in that He was also God. God is perfect, Jesus is perfect and there is NO sin in Him, so why would He reincarnate. That's not the way the Bible tells of Jesus' glorious return.

I would love to hear your thoughts on where you think all that heavy war machinery they are pulling out of Iraq is going. Hmmm, the US or Iran, or maybe both. Thanks for the link about the wellhead. It is beyond belief what is going on down there and because there's essentially a media blackout, seems most people have started snoring already because nobody up here in Illinois talks much about it anymore. If it's brought up, the subject is quickly changed. Yep, it is truly amazing watching it all unfold. And that's because our God is so amazing.

Love and peace.
Stay blessed and keep looking up.

Dave Wilcox said...

Hello Sandra,

Great comment and article. It is unfortunate that the title New Age has been associated with so much pop spirituality, because Jesus was responsible for a New Age, or Aeon, and the name has been hijacked. Just a side note by me.

The Secret is true as far as it goes, and I deal with this in detail on my blog (which I know you read, and thank you). Jesus told us to ask the father and be confident that our prayer will be answered, in this sense the Secret is true. Also, by focusing our minds on what we want most, we can often manifest the conditions necessary to make it happen. Whether it is good for us only God knows, but it can happen.

Long way of saying the Secret encourages people to practice Black Magic, which is nothing more than focusing one's desires to make them materialize in form. The result is always disaster, as was demonstrated by the makeshift sweat lodge, as Black Magic always brings suffering and a terrible retribution. It is unfortunate that the ancient sweat lodge ritual was implicated, and not the irresponsible management of the retreat. But of course, the Native ways are always marginalized, and that is a shame.

Anyway, I keep hope alive, I believe that God will redeem America and will unite all of us, the sons and daughters of European immigrants, Native people's. and former African Slaves into a people of light who can lead the world into a spiritual revolution. I think, and I know many disagree with me. Barack Obama is a visible sign of the possibility...but it is only a possibility at this point. We shall see.

faithful forever said...

We shall see indeed. Maybe sooner rather than later.

The war drums are beatly exceptionally loud and we should be prepared for anything.

We are all entitled to believe what we believe, and it's ok to agree to disagree. The truth will defend itself.

My understanding is that we are now under the New Covenant in which God deals with individuals and no longer with nations. Each and every individual has equal opportunity access to be included into the Kingdom of God. I believe God is bringing Israel together but it has nothing to do with the nation in the Middle East.

I exercise complete trust in the Bible as my authority. The Word is Jesus and He was made flesh.

I did not say that the only way to experience God is the Bible or scripture, but I will say that since we are so very far removed from Him spiritually, the scriptures are usually the best way to find Him.

I stand again that reincarnation is a false teaching and as with all false beliefs, are meant to distance us from the real truth.

I know you and I are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to our faiths, but I still enjoy your insights on the worldly matters. I am not inclined or interested in any way for any teachings other than that of my Savior Jesus Christ. If other people desire to pursue other gods, I do not or cannot stop them, just as I do not expect someone to deter me from my belief. This is my conviction and I am convicted forever. And it brings me great joy to proclaim my faith in Jesus and only Jesus. Forever and ever.

The truth will defend itself.

Dave,
You wrote:
"Barack Obama is a visible sign of the possibility...but it is only a possibility at this point. We shall see."
I voted for Obama and don't regret doing it but I have my doubts. He is trying to keep the old system together and it will not work. It is falling apart and those who mock and hate him blame him for it. It started before he came into office but "hey" people have to blame and the "blame game" has been going on since the story of Adam Eve...Adam blamed Eve and Eve blamed the serpent...all were kicked out of the garden of Eden. Not accepting responsibiltiy is the root of all that is wrong with the world. People love to blame instead of looking within to find out how they might have contributed to the problem. We love to think we are the good guys but in the end we all need to repent and turn away from this evil system and towards Christ. .

This system is dying because of greed..It is everyones fault and we need to realize all of our roles in the rise and eventually fall of Babylon. Obama is listening to bad advise...look what happen to that poor woman who was thrown under the bus because of the rightwings attempt to make his administration out as racist. That set off the racist in this country and they manipulated the masses. Obama messed up. He has been given plenty of opportunity to make changes but he is afraid to really speak up..Harry Truman said once that "I don't give people hell but I tell the truth and they think it is hell.

I love the fact that you have hope. I do too but not in Obama but in people like you who follow Christ's teaching and want to make the world a better place. Christ will guide us in our walk here and we do not need to fear. His truth is setting us free from this wordly system. Racism and Hate is part of the old system. It has no part in our lives now. Division on race and gender will end and those who want to divide the people will met their fate. Babylon is a matrix and we need to accept the truth (Christ)to be set free.

FF,
Thank you for understanding my position when it comes to my love of God's world which was a gift from the creator for all of us to enjoy. It is like if your father got you a new home "bought and paid for" and you moved in and started trashing it. It is called being respectful and thankful to our creator for the gift. Corp. America does not care because their god is profit and money.

Dublin,
I leave the New Agers alone but only speak up when they take our sacred teachings and exploit it. I do not like that and will speak up on that issue but everyone is free to walk their own journey. I respect the beliefs of others and try my best not to mock them for their beliefs. If I disagree I just voice my objections and move on.. Ghandi once said “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.” Ghandi.

Excerpt from a book titled: The Soul Survivor
Gandhi and Reverend Andrews, a Presbyterian missionary, were walking together in South Africa. “The two suddenly find their way blocked by young thugs. Reverend Andrews takes one look at the menacing gangsters and decides to run for it. Gandhi stops him. ‘Doesn’t the New Testament say if an enemy strikes you on the right cheek you should offer him the left?’ Andrews mumbles that he thought the phrase was used metaphorically. ‘I’m not so sure,’ Gandhi replies. ‘I suspect he meant you must show courage - be willing to take a blow, several blows, to show you will not strike back nor will you be turned aside. And when you do that it calls on something in human nature, something that makes his hatred decrease and his respect increase. I think Christ grasped that and I have seen it work.’”

Dave Wilcox said...

Dublin Mick,

Great responses, and great point about the Word existing before scripture. I enjoy reading your ideas on spirituality.

Sandra, I do not hope in Obama, but he represents hope in the sense that he represents a possible easy transition into the next age. I believe there is a reason he won the election, even though the money and power backed McCain and Palin, and still does, because he is a visible symbol of the possibility of change. If McCain won, America would have already descended into chaos, but miraculously God has not withdrawn his complete blessing as yet, and we still have time. Time for what?

Time to stop competing and to start coming together in small communities to rebuild what was once America. Time to, as you say, simplify our lives and to come out of Babylon and start anew. To live in harmony with ourselves, nature, our neighbors, and God. This is what we have before us now, whether we take it or not is up to us.

Fundamentalism is a disease: free your minds and live.

Dublin I want to offer a scripture which shows Jesus saying exactly what you just so eloquently said in your post:

20 And when he (Jesus) was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20-21)

God is within, and without, dwelling in the quiet of each human heart and can be found there, if we take the time to do so.

I have one big problem with one point you made about reincarnation. You said fundamentalist Christianity is the only religion that does not accept it, therefore it is wrong on this point. Orthodox Christianity has no reason to believe in reincarnation, because its foundational creeds and scriptures provide no evidence that Jesus saw reincarnation as important or essential to his message and mission. Besides, resurrection trumps reincarnation any day!

For discussion purposes, I thought I would post the Bible verses you referred to, Dublin Mick:

Malachi 4:5 (King James Version)

5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:


Luke 7:26-27 (King James Version)

26But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.

27This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Just to be clear, are you saying that John the Baptist and Elijah are the same person because their spirit is the same?

You are wise not to trust man, but are you wise enough to know that all things are possible with God and therefore He ordained the Bible just the way it is for His glory?

My favorite version is the King James.

Thanks for the discussion, even though I know neither one of us is going to budge.

Hi all,

Christ suffers and is crucified by his followers who refuse to submit their egos to the Father and instead seek worldly power and fame through the institutions of church. But have no fear, in every age God selects a people for himself who are faithful. He told Elijah, I have set aside 4000 people who have not sacrificed to Baal, and in our time there are tens of thousands of real Christians out there, but they are not getting any publicity because the church is under judgment for its lust for worldly power,and his people are in the desert awaiting his signal to emerge into the promised land.

Dublin, I understand your point, let go of stale doctrines and find the spark of divinity within. Great advice. I recommend this author to everyone if you are interested in this very topic. He wrote from a Christian perspective, and his writings have changed my life in many ways:

Dave Wilcox said...

Id like to offer a quote from the document I pasted above:

The exterior part of a religion does not matter much-although it is about this that people quarrel so bitterly-it is the inner meaning and experiences that are of importance. The end and object of religion is Divine Union, and if another soul attains to this state by a different road from that which is the only one that can be used by us, let us be glad and praise God, instead of wasting our time explaining to him he is wrong and our way the only one. Let us all be broad minded. Our Lord said, when speaking from the super-conscious, wherein he realized he was dwelling with advanced souls in every nation and religion: " I have sheep which are not of this fold." Let us be glad and rejoice in that the Truth can be found in so many different ways.

The Lord has a plan and we simply have to wait on Him. There is joy in the waiting and there is a purpose for everything.

The Lord tells us that new wine cannot be poured into old skin, so of course we have to be made new in Him, by Him and for Him. We have to give up what was given to us, therefore taking off the old, but we must be careful what we put on.

What is happening in the Gulf of Mexico in indeed a crime against humanity. Everything they do is a crime against humanity. Only One can wage war with the beast, but until His glorious return, He will guide, protect and sustain His children.

Love and peace to all.

God is faithful and He has always guided, protected and sustained His children from this world. And He means business.

Proverbs 1:20-30 (King James Version)

20Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

21She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,

22How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

23Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

30They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

...and His word is still hated and despised with constant barrages of attempting to disprove it.

We all will reap what we have sown and it is all based upon what our hearts believe in and there will be no escaping it.

I love all the words of the Lord. The Bible is the most remarkable book ever written; being a guide for all people throughout the ages.

How great is our God.

If books are written by dead man & are dead scriptures why do you keep on people to read more dead scriptures written by man?
While I agree with you that we need to follow the law written in our hearts by God himself rather then follow the teachings of men you seem to be intent on adding more dead words on top of other dead words.
Dublin, you sound just like everyone else. You say your words are wrong & wrote by man but my words are true & inspired by God.

Tell me what does it matter if we are reincarnated or not? It is of no importance to us here & now. If we get a 2nd chance then good for us but that should not prevent one from doing all they can in the here & now.Why look to another life while wasting the one you have now?

There is only one law & one thing we all need do that is important to us all right here & now.

Love thy God with all your heart & mind & to love your fellow man as you love yourself. Everything else is a meaningless argument that only leads to division. I don't even care if you are an athiest, if you treat people with love & compassion you are serving God & I wont try to beat them over the head & try to tell them how they have to accept or follow some scripture or religion. If you love your fellow man you love God & if you do not love your fellow man then you do not love God. It is very simple just as Yahshua/Joshua/Jesus said himself.

Sandra said...

Amen Anonymous. I am not here to argue on whose way is the right way....the words of our Lord is written in our hearts and Jesus taught truth for all ages. Jesus taught that people are free, free to enjoy being God's children free to grow and become one people united in love. This is impossible in the presence of rigid authority that needs to control peoples thinking and their free expression. Jesus taught humility and to be of service to others rather than dominate and dictate..Loving God and your neighbor takes in the 10 commandments...loving God is the first 4 commandments and loving your neighbor addresses the remanding six commandments. You do not lie, steal or covent etc your neighbor but respect him/her. It is a simple message but mankind has made it seem like we as servants of God can not possible walk that journey. I say we can and there are many who are doing just that.♥♥♥

Religion is useless of it does not lead you to a loving relationship with the divine (however you conceive it) and your neighbor. If it leads anywhere else, it is only a celebration of your ego and its pride. In this sense, an atheist or a hedonist are in better shape because at least they cannot become a hypocrite, which is eventually what will happen. And I am not specifically referring to anyone here, just in general (lest my comments be taken the wrong way)

If I speak in the tongues of men and angels,
but have not love,
I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol.

And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains,
but have not love, I am nothing.

And if I dole out all my goods, and
if I deliver my body that I may boast
but have not love, nothing I am profited.

Love is long suffering,
love is kind,
it is not jealous,
love does not boast,
it is not inflated.

It is not discourteous,
it is not selfish,
it is not irritable,
it does not enumerate the evil.
It does not rejoice over the wrong, but rejoices in the truth


It covers all things,
it has faith for all things,
it hopes in all things,
it endures in all things.

Love never falls in ruins;
but whether prophecies, they will be abolished; or
tongues, they will cease; or
knowledge, it will be superseded.

For we know in part and we prophecy in part.

But when the perfect comes, the imperfect will be superseded.

When I was an infant,
I spoke as an infant,
I reckoned as an infant;

when I became [an adult],
I abolished the things of the infant.

For now we see through a mirror in an enigma, but then face to face.
Now I know in part, but then I shall know as also I was fully known.

But now remains
faith, hope, love,

these three;

but the greatest of these is love

The paradox of 'depending on our inner light and the laws of nature' is that you cannot have either without the Creator of that inner light and the laws of nature.

We are given free choice.

Just for the record, Jesus will not reincarnate nor will He return in a fiery chair out of the sky.

Revelation 19:11
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Revelation 11:16
And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

...we all have a choice to believe or not believe.

Another amazing thing about our God is that there is nothing that can be done to suppress the Holy Spirit.

It is said that good things come to those who wait. It's really true. I can't think of anything better worth waiting for anyway.

In the mean time, our immediate world continues on in tribulation. Russia reports that over 5000 have parished in the extreme heat and the fires are expected to impact economies globally. Eastern Europe is experiencing major flooding and two dams threatened by the rising waters. BP claims the well is sealed and have announced plans to drill again in the Macondo field in the Gulf of Mexico. And two tropical depressions are forming. Osama must be retired because we are now being told Al-Queda has a new boss...one that lived here for 15 years and knows our fears because he has lived among us. The fact that they are giving us a patsy first, may mean the next false flag is not far behind. They are so lame and so transparent. It is hard to see how people still listen to a word they say, but unfortunately they do.

Thanks for your cogent contributions, I tend to agree with all you say. Reincarnation is the most difficult concept for the modern 'Christian' to understand, because the logic of the entire process has escaped them. Failure to realise we are in control of our own personal destiny, and that no one in the entire universe can take on that role for us, is the ultimate flaw of Cristianity as practiced by the fundamentalist. There is a horrible awakening about to take place in the evangelican community as the truth is revealed and how the distortions you have outlined have imprisoned humanity for uncountable centuries.

I admire your courage to broach this subject here on this blog, as I liken it to pissing on rocks... feels good, but little growth will result.

Please Sir could you explain to me why reincarnation is so important for one to believe in it & what value does it have for us?

To me it would seem that if everyone believed they were going to be reincarnated & get a 2nd chance they would not work as hard to do things right & work through tuff situations in this life. I am sure some people who have committed suicide believed in the back of their minds that this life is too tuff & just end it & start again. It seems to me that it would be counter productive.

I am not saying reincarnation is true or false, I really do not care because it does nothing to help me in this life here & now.

Mr Dublin came here talking about the Essene Gospel & others here accept that & have no problem with them but yet he does not seem to tolerate other gospels that people here believe & tries to discredit them with every post.

You seem to be the same way. If someone does not believe as you you have a pissy fit & call them names & try to belittle them & their beliefs.

You talk a good game but there seems to be little love or compassion in your words & attitude. You seem very closed minded & set in your beliefs.

Feel free to piss on my rocks as they are dead but please do not piss on my lawn, it will leave a dead spot on it.

Also you might try using water on your garden instead of pissing on it, you will grow more flowers that way.

I will not deny the power of Christ and his teachings in my life. I am not intolerant of others and try to walk in peace as I go on my journey. There are aspects of the new age philosophy that personally I want no part of and if I am considered intolerant because of it that is the judgement of the person making the accusation. Channeling spirits that is part of the movement in some groups is not something I am willing to have any part in.

Dublin,
Notice the words that I wrote in the comment on this issue which was "some groups" within the movement. I was not saying all the new age movement which you eloquently stated has many different branches. Personally for me that is the area within "some groups" that I want nothing to do with . I was not saying others can not follow it. Notice I said "personally". Was not trying to force anyone to agree with me just giving my humble opinion as you do here. I am not going to quote scripture to prove or disapprove my opinion. It is my "personal opinion" only.

Yes Jesus brought in a "new age". I agree with that. Thank God he did and he brought us a personal God which we are to consider our Father and that we are children of God.

I had to laugh at the piss comment, so I hope you do not mind if I mention that be careful what toilet (or rock) you piss on because it might fly back in your face!

Anyhoo, thanks for the laugh. It seems we always fight in this blog over labels, and ideas, etc and eventually someone (maybe me, maybe someone else) gets offended and takes comments personally. I have tried to fight to keep our blogs open to all points of view, but I always seem to fail, so I am simply going to say that you all contribute something valuable which helps me discern spiritual matters more deeply. FF, you are truly faithful, Sandra you have an open spirit, Dublin you have tried to integrate the good of Christianity with the good points of other philosophical systems, and ()you bring a more universal (that is other worldly) understanding to the consciousness changes we see happening in the human race.

Folks, think about this. If God is eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, (which God is of course) then what we know or think we know is a drop in the bucket and only so much dust in the wind. Seriously, none of us know for sure what happens after death, it is a matter of faith and personal taste. I prefer to leave the matter to God-if God chooses to reincarnate me I certainly cannot stop God. What would I say- "stop, Christian doctrine says this is false." This is God, God can do whatever God wants. Who am I to say? And for you reincarnation enthusiasts, what if you continue into other dimensions, or other realms of existence, and you do not reincarnate back to earth? Can you contend with God?

I guess I winder why humans argue over such things when we would serve each other, and our race, so much better if we focused on loving God (however we concieve God) and our neighbor. In the end, God will not ask us what we believed, but how well we practiced what we say we believe.

Christ was victorious. It matters not who rises up against him, or rose against him 2000 years ago, or if they still do so today, this world is his and they will be broken as God sees fit and in a way that serves the most good. Soon Christ will be in all and everyone will express Christ in their own way, and in freedom:

From Henry Thomas Hamblin:

There will come a time, so Isaiah the prophet tells us, when this law (the law of love) will
be universally observed; when the lion shall eat the same food as the
ox, and when "they shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain :
for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord even as the
waters cover the sea." This ideal state may be a long way ahead, but
we who know the truth can put it into practice here and now. By so
doing we cannot fail to bring harmony and peace into our life, such as
cannot be described. We can thank Heaven every day that we live in an
orderly universe; we can pray every day that we may be brought into
correspondence with it; we can think and act every day according to its
underlying principle or law of co-operation and helpful service. Our first
thought in every circumstance of life will be, not what can I get out of it,
but how much can I help? This, of course, is foolishness according to
worldly standards, but it is really the highest wisdom and it leads to the
attainment of a life of true harmony, satisfaction and peace.

I appreciate the links, and yes it is one big puzzle. The problem of course is how big is the puzzle, and when do you stop searching and get down to the business of unfolding the Christ within? I have found that it is a process with seemingly endless initiations, ups and downs, and victories in what I thought were defeats.

I had read somewhere that cosmic rays are linked to the power of the Holy Spirit, but I am not sure where I read it or if I am even speaking correctly, but if this is true, then and increase in cosmic rays could very well precipitate a consciousness evolution. Just a thought.

Sandra said...

When you are grounded in your journey to the Father you do not feel threatened with the beliefs of others. We are all on a journey here and personally my journey does not include putting down others that believe differently. Why would I do that when it was done to my culture and people. If I give a personal opinion on a comment that was written here remember it is a "personal opinion" and does not have to be believed by others. We grow and develop by listening to others with different views. If you come from a different path it is not for me to say it is my way or the highway. God knows our hearts and if you show mercy to others. I don't think God wants us to love only those who think like us and to belittle the beliefs of others. Sometimes I see that here and with the attitude of I am more "enlightened" and you need to throw off your beliefs. That is what the fundamentalist do and I have a tendency to just walk away from their judgmental beliefs.

That being said here is a link where some are throwing off the shackles of Babylon and living a simple life.

These times are not for the faint of heart nor for the faint of faith. Prophecy is being fulfilled just as the enemy's agenda is advancing. Maybe the time for ear tickling is over and it is time for the whole truth according to the holy word of God. I know many despise it and do not have ears to hear or eyes to see, but I love and cling to His word and I am not ashamed of it. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Love and His peace to all in these trying times.

Russia is allegedly still scrambling to save a nuclear facility from the fires and has reported that the wheat crop will be 60 million tons short because of the fires. One-fifth of Pakistan is under water and they are expecting terror attacks and a possible takeover. China has suffered a new land slide, and the human suffering is compounded daily.

Turkey is said to be arming Hezbollah and Nasrallah has officially stated that he has proof that Israel assassinated the Lebanese PM in 2005 and will be filing charges with the UN. Moving us many steps closer to breaking point.

Both China and Russia are declaring the disasters in their countries are from weather modification weaponry. Interesting indeed. I found this article very interesting and informative:

...but the Lord will return, whether we believe or not, whether we desire it or not, it will be fulfilled as it is written. By the one and only true God of the whole universe, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.

Pakistan has 20 million displaced, cholera has surfaced and riots and tempers are beginning to flare due to the lack of assistance. A flood of "Biblical" proportion.

Tens of millions of Americans, lumped into a diffuse and fractious movement known as the Christian right, have begun to dismantle the intellectual and scientific rigor of the Enlightenment. They are creating a theocratic state based on “biblical law,” and shutting out all those they define as the enemy. This movement, veering closer and closer to traditional fascism, seeks to force a recalcitrant world to submit before an imperial America. It champions the eradication of social deviants, beginning with homosexuals, and moving on to immigrants, secular humanists, feminists, Jews, Muslims and those they dismiss as “nominal Christians”—meaning Christians who do not embrace their perverted and heretical interpretation of the Bible. Those who defy the mass movement are condemned as posing a threat to the health and hygiene of the country and the family. All will be purged.

That was kind of you, Annon and I thank you.

Greetings with love and holy kisses.

I have been watching the renewed cries of the atrocities for the genocide that is taking place in the Congo recently, and have had a pretty heavy heart about the whole world and the people in it. I truly believe there are more of us in the world who do care about all the crimes against humanity perpetuated by satan and his minions, but sometimes it seems like if it doesn't affect people personally, they continue to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear so as to be able to continue on with what is pressing in our own lives. Another design by the old foe that entraps and ensnares many people.

I know people are searching for answers and this can be a good thing but only if you are looking for the correct answers in the right place - The Holy Bible. It saddens me that more do not knock on the door that He is so ready and willing to open to anyone with an earnest heart. There is nothing mystical or mysterious about His ways - no cosmic rays, nothing superstitious, just plain truth in all His words. There are mysteries of God which we do not need to know, but there is nothing encrypted when it comes to Jesus. As Paul says in Corinthians, 'maintain the simplicity that is in Christ.'

Love the Lord your God with all your mind, heart and soul, and He and only He will give you life more abundant. More love, more understanding, more peace, more wisdom, more grace; for all good things come from Jesus and only Jesus.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

2 Corinthians 13:8 (KJV)
For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. Amen.

The truth is always unwaivering and defends itself, but it sure does make people mad who reject it.

Love and peace in Jesus' name to all who enter here.

Nine long years later and the false flag event on that fateful day is pivotal in understanding what is going on in our world today. Their agenda of a new world order has advanced tenfold since September 11, 2001. The ugly truth about that day is finally starting to stretch its' legs, and either the temporary powers that be will not care if the truth gets out, or they will react violently to it. Time will tell...soon time will tell.

Whether the Quran burning event takes place or not, the damage has been done by the mere threat of doing so. More unrest and bloodshed will take place. Maybe they are going to use it to blame the Arab nation for the next false flag.

I applaud all those who continue to further the truth about 911.

...and maybe the effects of vaccinations or the causes of cancer, alzheimers and on and on and on. A most sick and corrupt bunch walks among us. One thing is for sure - they hate us. They hate us as they hated Him, and to be aware of this simple but very important fact is vital for these days that we are blessed to be witnessing. I consider these times a blessing even though most people probably would not agree. I desire no more strangers among us, only those who worship the one and only true God of all the world, Jesus Christ. Calling out the name of Buddah, Allah or Krishna or any other will not save, and why should it? There is no other that was sacrificed as the Lamb of God was. Soon, all the world will see how mighty our God is. We are getting there indeed, Annon. It is happening; our redemption, Jesus, is drawing nigh.

I am blessed beyond measure by your presence Annon. The unity is a tremendous gift of love and harmony, as it always has been, but it is undeniable and stronger than ever. What a priceless gift. How great and loving is our God...He always knows what we need even before we need it. Thank you for helping me stay blessed.

Love and peace in His name.

That is a beautiful song Dave, and thanks for sharing it. Just think what this world would be like if every person let Jesus' light shine through them...it would be a different world. Soon it will be, but until then, there will be suffering, evil, wars with iniquity abounding until satan is bound forever.

God has it all taken care of and under control. Everything is just the way it should be, and as with all His ways, I am comforted.

His plan is sufficient for me and His timing always perfect. There is a time and a season for everything, even the end of this system of things, that has nothing to do with whether we want Him to come back or not, because if it were up to us, we would possibly be stuck here in this mess forever as people don't much seem to desire even the thought of His Second Coming. Just like when He freed the Israelites from Eqyptian bondage, soon after they wanted to go back because their faith was so little they preferred the slavery to ensure their needs were taken care of.

Come Lord Jesus and free your people. I for one will never look back. The King is indeed coming.

Sandra said...

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the link...this song was written and produced in 1975 and it is more relevant today than ever. Problem is people will not wake up to the "TRUTH". Those who try to wake up people are considered anti America. The old way of looking at the world has to change. Until this country stops putting profit and material wealth as the ultimate aim of achieving the "American Dream" this country is doom to continue on a downward trend. Thirty five years and nothing has changed.....Preachers need to speak the truth and stop believing that this country was founded under Jesus..It was not.

Sandra, I love the original Harold Melvin version, Teddy Pendergrass was so talented, what a voice. I agree, until we have a spiritual conversion things will continue to get worse economically. The Twin Towers were symbols of American and Western Wealth, and God allowed 9-11 to happen to show us how it can all come tumbling down in one day unless we Wake Up.

God will revive us in His perfect way with His perfect timing. God's word, let alone a song, have not taught mankind much in over 2000 years. We are all about to get a wake up call.

New writing from Mr. Dougherty:

http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/article.asp?ID=13577

It is interesting that people think it is up to us to change the world for it certainly ties into the original sin, does it not, to turn from God and do it on our own. It is not my intention to be harsh or critical, but rather to say the truth according to His holy word that has been ignored for centuries. God will send us the Spirit of Elijah that will turn hearts and minds back to the Father where they belong. There is hope for all because God is so good.

Love and peace in His name.
Stay blessed and looking up.

Sandra said...

FF,
Isn't that what some of us have been saying. Exactly what this Michael is saying. If we are awake in Christ should not we being going about the Lord's business. I know that has been what I have been saying.

This excerpt from this guy Michael: (whoever he is???)
Many of you have not been answering the call of your Lord and Savior to change your own lives to live within the Divine Will of the Father in Heaven. The time is running out for you to make this commitment to the Lord and Savior to become part of the ultimate solution for planet Earth.

Do not plan on being counted among the losers here on earth who have turned their lives away from the Father in Heaven and to the evil one. For those of you who show your respect and reverence for the Lord and Savior and conduct yourselves accordingly, you will ultimately benefit from the journey into the afterlife and a conscious and eternal connection with the Father in Heaven". (end of excerpt)

Jesus's teachings have never been put into practice by the majority. His teachings are from our Father in Heaven:

Matthew 21-23: 21 Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22 Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?"
23 And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness."

faithful forever said...

Sandra, I hear what is being said about us being about doing the will of the Father, and I believe His people live their lives accordingly. So what more can we do that we are not already doing? Will it take more people walking in the way of Jesus to change the world? I do not have the answers to these questions. I have asked, but received no responses. I do not know what else can be done, either individually or collectively, to free us from this bondage.

The article is written by a man named Ned Dougherty who claims to have had a near death experience, and has been receiving messages or visions from Michael, the arc angel. I like reading them but do not vouch for it in any way. I do so hope though that he is right about getting close to a new revelation. I believe the Lord is going to use His church in big ways, but the empowerment will come from Him, not us; thus we are waiting on the Lord to show us and lead us. Do we need to have the faith and the strength to be able to leave everything and everyone behind and go out into the world to make disciples of nations, and if we did, would the world listen? I don't know. I believe that will take an act of God to have the world listen. The world is cold and growing colder every day, but still people don't turn to God and His word for answers. A million reasons for denying Jesus' return may be close, and as yet, the world does not appear desire Him or His ways.

We will be rewarded for doing our part for furthering His Kingdom, as we do out of love for Him every day, but Jesus is the only one who can wage war with the beast, so we wait on the Lord. This is my belief and I hope I have cleared up what I am trying to say...what more can we do?

Thank you for the great discussion and especially the fellowship. It is always good to grow together, albeit sometimes painfully, but growing just the same. Whatever the Lord is going to do about bringing that change, is certainly drawing close. Once it starts, it will be swift, I believe.

Love and peace to you my special sister, in His precious holy name.

9What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.

10For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.

11There is one come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the LORD, a wicked counsellor.

12Thus saith the LORD; Though they be quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more.

13For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder.

14And the LORD hath given a commandment concerning thee, that no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile.

15Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.

From the Daily Berean; may it bless someone today:

Daniel 7:27
(27) Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven,
Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High.
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.'

New King James Version Change Bible versions

Daniel 7:27 promises rulership to the saints in God's government, which is why an essential decision in our lives revolves around government. Government is the overriding issue in the Bible. Who will rule in our lives, God or Satan? It is that simple.

Israel rejected God's rule. When Israel desired a king, it was because they did not want God to rule them (I Samuel 8:7). Will we do the same? That is the critical issue that must be resolved in our lives. How can we reject God's rule? By insisting on being our own general—by putting ourselves, not God, at the forefront of the battles we fight every day. We simply do not allow Him to be our King and Commander.

The examples of the first and second Adam prove how vital the subject of government is. In the Garden of Eden, the test that Adam and Eve failed was the test of government. To whose rule would they submit—God's or Satan's? The Devil's temptation of Christ (Matthew 4; Luke 4) was the same test: Would He submit to God's or Satan's government? Jesus passed the test, rejecting Satan's offers for personal gain. Because God neither changes nor varies, He is a God of patterns. We, then, have the same test to pass. To which government will we submit?

There is a direct connection between prayer and submission to God's government. When we pray, we are prostrating ourselves before Him, calling on His great name, and recognizing His power, omnipotence, omniscience, immutability, wisdom, mercy, and grace. Interestingly, Jesus called the Temple, in which God dwelt, "a house of prayer" (Luke 19:46). We now are temples of His Holy Spirit in which He dwells (I Corinthians 3:16), so we, too, should be houses of prayer.

Prayer is a spiritual blessing God gives to us as a major tool for growth. Prayer at any time is an exercise in humbling ourselves, as it forces us to admit our humanity, inadequacy, dependence, and need. It is an admission that we are not self-sufficient. Those who humble themselves before His sovereignty are those to whom He gives His attention (Isaiah 66:2).

We desperately need a vital relationship with God and all that He will give to us by His grace to achieve His purpose for us. His gifts flow to the humble because they will submit to His government and His will, and for that reason, God will withhold no good gift from them (Romans 8:32; Psalm 84:11). By prayer, and especially by striving to pray always, we are submitting every thought, word, and action to the scrutiny and governance of the great God.

The Israelites did not want God to rule their lives directly; they did not want to submit to His rule. If we are not striving to pray always, we are making the same mistake. Their decision put them in the position of having to fight their own battles. If we make the same mistake, we get the same results—but worse. Why would God want anyone in His eternal Family who demonstrates an unwillingness to submit to His governance on every occasion?

SUBJECT: Abbas 'upbeat';no mention of recognizing Israel's sovereignty

FULL TEXT:RAMALLAH (AFP) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas expressed optimism on Thursday(14 Oct) that Washington would convince Israel to renew a settlement building ban and end a peace talks deadlock.
"Why not hope that the US administration will convince Israel to stop settlement activities," he told reporters at a joint news conference with visiting Finnish President Tarja Halonen in the West Bank city of
Ramallah.[IMRA: No mntion of recognizing Israeli sovereignty ]
Israel and the Palestinians began face-to-face negotiations six weeks ago, but the talks look set to collapse following the end of an Israeli ban on settlement building which expired on September 26.
Israel has refused to reimpose the moratorium, while the Palestinians say they will not talk while settlers build on occupied Palestinian land,
prompting a flurry of US diplomatic efforts to resolve the deadlock.
"Let's focus on hope and not failure," Abbas said. "If the US efforts do yield progress, we will be ready to resume the talks immediately."
The Palestinians see the settlements as a major threat to the establishment of a viable future state in the occupied West Bank, and they view a freezing of settlement activity as a crucial test of Israel's intentions.

Hi Annon. I know, I miss our Young Brother and PeterZ coming around here, and Stephen's writing. But I am most thankful that you are still here my brother in Christ, as well as Sandra and Dave popping in once in a while. I can't explain why people are gone just as I can't explain why I am still here. But here we are.

I thought about you today actually. I read an article about 15,000 rapes that have taken place in the Congo, and the silence that follows any atrocity other than that of the holocaust. Our God knows all and sees all, and His justice will be just and righteous. We will each get what we deserve; reap what we sow. How can we do the things to each other so easily when we would not want done to us. A sad state of affairs for certain.

The rape cases in Congo and all other sorts of inhumane acts in some parts of the world don't get that much attention by the media.
The bias has almost become as natural as breathing.
I for one don't understand the-so-much-publicity about the Chilean mine disater where the main stream media around the world cover the story round the clock or on prime time so to speak. It just doesn't make sense to witness a much worse disaster, with scores dead and many more trapped under the mine fields in China and the same media outlets don't even cover it. Where is the umming and ahhing that was given for a disaster where no life was perished . May be this explains it better.

Greetings Annon, and I have to tell you what a blessing it is to see someone proclaim that the KING is indeed coming, instead of denying it. Holy kisses, my brother in Christ.

Whenever there is that much media coverage by the temporary powers that control that media, you know there is more to it than meets the eye. I like that guy's work at the link you left. I had actually seen that, and while I don't understand its' meaning and significance, I know there is more to it than meets the eye. I seen an article the other day about the rescued miners that stated 'it was the biggest rescue since Noah's Ark.' Now I know our world has been rich with double-speak in this strange Orwellian world, but that remark is so...something...maybe blasphemous. I'm not even sure, but I quit reading the article. Yea, there's more to it than meets the eye. God knows all. He knows what they are going to do before they do it, and this comforts me beyond measure.

Trouble in Paris...Saudi intel says Al-Quida ready to strike in France. They can join those who are already on strike in France and managing to shut down airports and other entities. I really don't mean to make light of a bad situation, I am merely sick of their constant, continuous lies. More power to the people.

And lots more power to His people. My prayers and thoughts with love go out to all our brothers and sisters everywhere for strength and guidance that only comes from above. With a special prayer for my brother Annon for the Lord to keep shining His face on him. God is so good.

Love and peace in His name.

Greetings with love and holy kisses, Annon. I am still here although I am severely limited - internet at home has all but locked me out about the last month. I am not able to post a comment much less a new writing. I can post from work but that is all (like now), and there are many constraints on that as expected.

I miss the conversation too; there is so much happening in our world you would think our little community would be on fire. Instead it is extinguished. Backwards...like most everything in our world. I know the strength of the foundation of God's word is something to be extra thankful for in this crazy, changing world. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. When we can't count on others, we can ALWAYS count on our Lord.

I continue to watch the signs in our world of the Savior's return, and continue to wonder why more do not equate the current world situation with the Bible, but just as the Lord says, many will be making merry and not wanting to be bothered with that. Noah withstood a hundred years of ridicule while he built the arc for a flood that was coming in a time when it never rained, and there is nothing new under the sun...people still don't want to listen. Everything is the way it should be...even the hard-heartedness of people. Doesn't mean it isn't happening, because it very much is. The warning will not last forever.

I know you are isolated in your vision and beliefs, Annon, with not many around you to share with what you see, and it is the same for me. I also know the Lord has a plan and a purpose for everything...even the solitude. He is strengthening you in ways you may not even be aware of. Keep trusting in Him just as you are and He will fill you up and give you life more abundant to carry you.

I will be searching for another ISP soon and hopefully my issues will be resolved assuming that it is not a bigger issue.

The Lord our God will not forsake those who know His voice. You keep listening and know you are not alone my brother in Christ even when it feels like it. I am glad you are still here.

Staying blessed and always looking up with you. Our redemption is drawing near. We will be together at the Lord's wedding supper and maybe we will sit together you and I.

Rejoice and make a joyful noise unto the Lord for all He has done, is doing and all that is to come.

Love, prayers and many blessings in His precious holy name.

Thanks for your uplifting and kind words. Indeed the solutude is within the plan and purpose of God, and its amazing my dear sister that I tought about the very thing - solitude, today. God has His own way of fashioning and shaping His children and prepare them for His glory. He trained Mosses in a palace in order to use him in a wilderness and trained Josef in wilderness in order to use him in a palace. And surely we are learning from the solitude too. The crowd may not feel us and share our beliefs but we feel God and His presence and thats what matters most. We know the King is coming in the cloud of His glory and every single moment we thank Him for giving us an expectant hearts. We know how , in this world, the road ahead is rough and bumpy. But we have already overcome the battle through Christ our lord and saviour.
Praying for you my dear sister.
Stay blessed and keep looking up.

Thank you for your prayers Annon and you are in mine as well. I loved your comment and I love the oneness and harmony with God's people.

Certainly, and unfortunately, the crowd will not share our beliefs, but it is far better to be in favor with God than with the world. We know God wants for none to parish, but He has told us that there will be many who do. Not of His design, but by their own hearts' desires. I am thankful He has given me a heart that desires Him. I am thankful for all He does. Our God is so good as are all His ways...even solitude for His purpose and glory. Your patient obedience will be blessed.

Mount Merapi in Indonesia continues to confound the scientists with more violent eruptions. I read there are 21 other volcanoes in the Ring of Fire that have increased seismic activity since September 2nd. The volcanologist that was interviewed said it was an unprecedented watch taking place. And Katla (angry sister) in Iceland is allegedly swarming with quakes which could possibly be a precursur to an eruption. What if every volcano in the world erupted simultaneously...it would surely change our landscape and blot out the Sun.

I see things like the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) going to be fired off on 11/9, which is 9/11, backwards, and my inquiring mind wants to know what it all means, if anything. I see that some compare the design of the LHC to that of Solomon's Temple and given they are in search of a "God Particle," my mind races, but God calms my heart because He is the creator of evil for the day of judgement, and as you said Annon, the battle is already won.

How great is our God.
Love and prayers.

'Major issues at stake as Obama heads to India.' (who knew we had major issues at stake with India, but what do I know!), and a Delta Airlines has a bomb threat and had to land in Mumbai. Timing is everything...so they say.

Greetings..anyone?

Good article about the LHC if interested. The US has spend $10 billion on this machine for their feeble attempt to explain the universe in scientific terms thus replacing God; which is always a dangerous proposition.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/technology/news/article.cfm?c_id=5&objectid=10686393

Events are happening at the speed of sound from the unusual trail in the sky off the coast of SoCal to Netanyahu claiming Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as Israel's capital to Obama stating that settlements are a deterrant to peace, to Palestinian FM saying Palestine needs to be recognized as a State. Yep, things are heating up, and come what may, there are indeed far better days ahead. Far,far better days...Heaven on Earth; Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done.

It's going to be awesome. Just like our God.

Come Lord Jesus.

A video of the 'intercontinental ballistic missile test off of a submarine perhaps as a message to Asia that it can do that.'

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7038111n&tag=related;photovideo

Bush has suddenly slithered out from under a rock and is everywhere. No apologies for the illegal wars even after the lies of wmd were revealed. The audacity. No surprise, Bush has said he would have said he supported Obama if they would have asked. Two peas in a pod. Bush has allegedly publicly acknowledged the Israeli loss to Lebanon in 2006. Them just might be fighting words...

Watching prophecy unfold is amazing and I believe the intensity is about to increase. The change is in the air. Real change. Change we can believe in. Forever and ever.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

Last weekend Mt. Merapi has had its' most violent eruption since 1872. Interesting article about the changes in the atmosphere that take place after a volcanic eruption and an aerial picture of how huge the ash plume is:

http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=46881

How crazy is it going to get?! AMNESTY is calling for the arrest of Bush to try him for torture (seeing how he has just openly admitted it), and we get to see Greenspan state there was criminal activity taking place in the banking sphere. You don't say. On a stage on Jekyll Island. No kidding - can't make this up. But, it was said for a reason, to suit their purposes; maybe to trigger an uprising or perhaps for ushering in the new world currency. or both. Maybe they just can't help but reveal themselves. Is the story about the bonding moment between mother and son with the fetus in the jar really true? How weird is it going to get? Obama critiquing Israel while in a Muslim nation...what's next? Are the volcano gods happy or upset about the arrival of Obama. It sparked a lot of protests by the regular people. Obama leaves, Bush resurfaces and debuts his memoirs on 11/9. No coincidence there either. People want the reprobate's signature and are standing in lines to buy the book.

My local paper features a weekly segment where a reporter goes out into the general public with a question about a current topic. This question was about whether people thought banks and/or gov't should assist people with their foreclosures and such, kinda like a bailout for us little people, and 4 out of the 5 said 'no.' The 4 negatives all figured they had gotten themselves into the mess by their own choices so therefore should have to suffer the consequences. Talk about judge and jury. Only one person responded with 'yes.' He said if the big banks and corporations could get bailed out, then so should we. Would most people actually prefer to see other people thrown to the streets than receive assistance? What a cold world and how heartless will heartless get in this stressed out world?

How can we not desire the renewal and revival found in the promises of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Hi Annon. Maybe the animals are trying to tell us somethin! How unusual will it get...anything is possible. I was searching for current news about Mt. Merapi. Selected this one and had to share it with you because it talks about rare leopards running down the slopes of Mt. Merapi. I was moved by the connectedness as I had just read the links you left. God is so amazing all the time even in the little things.

Colossians 3:15-17 (KJV)

15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Amen.

It is incredible watching it all unfold. I am thankful to our God for bringing us both here to watch the walls come tumbling down on this rotten system of things. There is joy even in that! Yes indeed, God is so good.
