Lately I have been reading a lot of articles regarding the changing weather and there is a lot of evidence showing that the unusual and extreme weather patterns are caused by that great solar ball of fire in the sky, the sun. It has astounded scientists with almost simultaneous coronal mass ejections (CMEs) on opposite ends of the giant sphere which is a phenomenon virtually unheard of. The scientists tell us we are entering into a period of increased solar activity after what has been a relatively calm period previously.

Those who worship creation, rather than the Creator, have made the sun their object of worship. It is known as pantheism and it is worship of a false god.

While life is dependent upon the sun, the sun is dependent upon the Son. As everything is dependent upon the Son. How amazingly awe-inspiring (as always) that it will be the sun that changes our physical world and brings havoc upon creation that was created by the Son.

Soon, it will darken and not be allowed to shine on the world. The world as we now know it will cease to be. But the Son will shine for eternity. The light of the world, the light unto our path, will never change or die out. Rejoice and give thanks to the Son, the real illuminator now and forever.

God is so good and does not want us to want for anything; but rather provide us everything. Another piece from The Berean:

Genesis 2:3
(3) Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
New King James Version

God did this to no other day! The Sabbath day is blessed. The Bible clearly shows a blessing to be something given or conferred to bring a person a fuller and more abundant life. The blessing may be monetary, but it elevates the person's life. The blessing may be something spiritual such as forgiveness of sin or illumination of the mind to truth. The person begins to be liberated, and his life begins to fill with the right things.

We can begin to see God's purpose in blessing the Sabbath. The purpose of the Sabbath is to bring a person—and everyone eventually—to a more abundant life, to liberate him from whatever holds him in bondage. The Sabbath is the day of liberation, of liberty, of freedom.

Genesis 2:3 is the capstone of His blessings in the Creation week, expressing God's blessing of His whole Creation. By blessing a recurring period of time, God promises to be man's Benefactor through the whole course of human history. It is an invocation of God's favor to everyone who keeps it. We will see that its primary intention is to make and show God as our spiritual Benefactor.

Now, the Sabbath blessing also includes the physical. The two cannot be separated because we are physical. This is why He tells us to rest on it. It is a blessing to be able to rest on the Sabbath. Our health is increased because of it. We do not get sick as often as we used to. And when we do, we do not become as sick as we used to. Because we are resting on the Sabbath day, our body is freed from much of what would normally come upon us. If we do not keep it, we do not receive that blessing.

Even so, this is not its primary intention. Its primary intention has to do with the spiritual. In Luke 4:16-21, Jesus clearly ties His ministry to the Sabbath concepts of blessing, deliverance, liberty, and redemption. That is His mission: to bring these things to mankind.

This is absolute blasphemy! This is the issue of salvation! Sun and Son may rhyme together, but both are the creation of Allah (Elohim). How can God Almighty be a man or even get born from a womb?? Jesus was born from the womb of Mariam. He was there for 9 months! Don't you ever want to think about this?

God Almighty can be a man and born of the womb because all things are possible with God.

Jesus is God. It is simply a matter of reading His holy word in the Holy Bible.

And soon every knee will bow and every tongue confess it is so. Even the unbelievers.

Top ten reasons Jesus is God:

1. Jesus raised the dead.
2. Jesus healed the sick and the blind.
3. Jesus says so - it is why the Jews wanted Him killed for blasphemy; they loved Him as the Son of God, but not when He claimed to be God. Even with witnessing the miracles only God can perform, they still couldn't believe; had something to do with their heart condition.
"I and my Father are ONE."
--Jesus Christ, John 10:30
4.It is what His name means "...they shall call his name EMMANUEL, which being interpreted is, GOD WITH US." --MATTHEW 1:23
5. Jesus said, "Fear not; I am the first and the last:" Revelation 1:17
6. ALL things were created for and by Him.
7. ONLY Jesus saves. He died for all.
8. Jesus is the Judge of the world. The Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: John 5:22
9. Jesus is the ultimate expression of God's love: "Hereby perceive we the love of GOD, because he LAID DOWN HIS LIFE for us... --1 John 3:16 ...even while we were yet sinners. AND asked for their forgiveness for doing it and continues to faithfully ask for our forgiveness.
10. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

Thank you for the opportunity to express my faith.

Praise Jesus' holy name on the highest high.

I check the usgs site frequently for earthquake recordings, and witnessed a recorded quake at Yellowstone (notice the other one in the basin, as well), and went back and it was gone. Went looking for it and found someone who took a screen shot of it before it disappeared. The info is actually a little different. The one I seen was a 2.8 at 0.5 depth. Really, close to the surface.

Maybe something will be posted after the details are sorted out, but it was the first time I have ever seen one disappear. hmmmm..

Prayers for all around the world who are suffering from hunger, oppression, hopelessness, abuse and torture, extreme weather and quakes and all the ills of our world in general, for all to turn to the Lord. The only true light of the world. We are lost without Him. All glory to God.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

From SpaceWeather, February 13, 2011:

BEHEMOTH SUNSPOT 1158: Sunspot 1158 is growing rapidly (48 hour movie) and crackling with C-class solar flares. The active region is now more than 100,000 km wide with at least a dozen Earth-sized dark cores scattered beneath its unstable magnetic canopy. Earth-directed eruptions are likely in the hours ahead.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

faithful forever said...

EARTH-DIRECTED SOLAR FLARE: On Feb. 13th at 1738 UT, sunspot 1158 unleashed the strongest solar flare of the year so far, an M6.6-category blast. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded an intense flash of extreme ultraviolet radiation.

The eruption produced a loud blast of radio waves heard in shortwave receivers around the dayside of our planet. In New Mexico, amateur radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft recorded these sounds at 19 to 21 MHz. "This was some of the strongest radio bursting of the new solar cycle," he says. "What a great solar day."

Preliminary coronagraph data from STEREO-A and SOHO agree that the explosion produced a fast but not particularly bright coronal mass ejection (CME). The cloud will likely hit Earth's magnetic field on or about Feb. 15th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

The source of this activity, sunspot 1158 is growing rapidly (48 hour movie). The active region is now more than 100,000 km wide with at least a dozen Earth-sized dark cores scattered beneath its unstable magnetic canopy. More Earth-directed eruptions are likely in the hours ahead.

BTW...I believe "the numbers" I(Matt_333)posted back in August 08(Resurrection of the body of Christ thread) was true. I just saw young brothers(does he still post here, and if he doesn't is there anyway I can contact him?) comments about the devil attacking me spiritually out of anger for what was said, and I believe that is exactly how it went down. These numbers do have a lot of meaning to them and I hope the Devil's plans to discredit what was being said didn't work. A lot of weird stuff happened to me in late August and early September - felt I was in danger - but my Faith got me through it. It's late where I'm at right now, but I'll expand on this post tomorrow. Pray for strength in Jesus for me so that the devil does not attack me like he had in the past.

Our world is changing quickly. Maybe events will continue to speed up until the great and awful day of the Lord glorious arrives. An amazing time like no other.

Mexico has had a deep freeze which translates to higher food prices. There are warnings of another Icelandic volcano eruption and Mt. St. Helen is rumbling as is Yellowstone. Chile has had an earthquake of 6 or more magnitude for four consecutive days.

The Egyptian protests have spread to Yemen and Iran blames the US for inciting their current protests. Seems the whole world wants change.

Matt_333, our young brother pops in once in a while, but doesn't seem to stick around or say too much. Praying that changes. Keeping you in my prayers too as well as all God's people, for strength and His peace that surpasses all our understanding. God is so good and He will faithfully finish all that He has begun working everything for the good for those who love Him.

The Lord will not forsake his people, but shall cut off the wicked. (Psalms 94)

Rejoice and make a joyful noise unto the Lord, the Lamb who was slain for the whole world.

And all things are possible with God. Just look at the amazing time that is unfolding that was written about so very long ago. And here we are.

All His ways comfort and strengthen. I bow my head with complete awe for the awesome God we serve and all glory to Jesus; the only One worthy to open the book of life.

Our amazing God; from the Berean:

Exodus 34:5-8
(5) Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. (6) And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, (7) keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation." (8) So Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped.
New King James Version Change Bible versions

What man or institution has these qualities? In addition, He is the eternal Creator, Healer, Savior, Judge, and the very pinnacle of wisdom, understanding, and grace.

Yet, mankind is so deluded that, without realizing it, many worship their consciences formed by their own earthly experiences. Their consciences are nothing more than an inner voice, a sort of a moral policeman that has taken up residence within. Can it be trusted? Do we trust ours? This is better than nothing, but conscience is easily perverted and often abnormally developed because it is almost entirely dependent upon upbringing and propaganda from this world's media. Since this is Satan's world, there is little chance that a person's conscience will be entirely aligned with God's standards.

Others superimpose on God their conceptions of a human father, but this, too, is woefully inadequate. What if one has no father as part of his life? What if his father was stupid, foolish, tyrannical, or over-indulgent? What kind of positive impression will that leave? Is God merely a grand old man, a head-patting, gray-headed, somewhat doddering person whose mind wanders back to better times, forgetful of what is occurring on the earth and in our lives?

God's name is "I was, I am, I will be." He has lived for eternity, but He is not old; He is every bit as modern as tomorrow. When God came as a man, He showed He did not have a completely placid temperament, a God who would not say, "Boo!" He did not just let sleeping dogs lie. He was not uninspired and uninspiring; Jesus stirred people up so that they said, "No man ever spoke like this Man!" (John 7:46). He challenged and exposed the hypocrisies of the religion of His day and was moved to deep anger by the shameless exploitation taking place at the Temple. He was of such personality that He walked unscathed through hostile crowds. Jesus was meek, but the term indicates that He had the power to use as He willed, restraining it as an act of mercy, wisdom, and love.

Christianity is not for the soft and sentimental. We have a war on our hands, and our God is a powerful warrior—the Lord of Hosts is His name. He is on our side, but He demands our loyalty.

The article says it was an earthquake in the Suez canal. No strength reported, but an earthquake just the same. The USGS is not registering it or reporting it either.

Yep, I am with coincidences happening right now.

This is the first time since 1979 that Iran's warships have been allowed to pass through the canal and Israel is viewing it as a provocation. I'm sure it never could have happened if Mubarak remained in power in Egypt.

Everything that is happening is happening for a reason.

Hilary Clinton is calling for Gadhafi to stop the bloodshed while Gadhafi is telling the police and military to fire on the protestors. Allegedly he called them 'rats and cockroaches' during a televised statement. I have never seen a person's name spelled so many different ways before. It's being reported that the Libyan Interior Minister has resigned and joined with the protesters.

Watching the protests and the cries for justice seem like a good thing and that there is a change, a world revolution in the making, and positive ends will be wrought from them, but I can't help but think about their plans that they so blatantly tell us about, that most people try to pretend isn't there before our very eyes on our currency: 'order out of chaos.'

I think they are creating the chaos in order to further their agenda of creating the order; a new world order. The same new world order spoken of by George H.W. Bush on September 11, 1990.

And here we are. Ohio is in the news today for heading out to the streets and reports look like Illinois may be the next one to do so.

The government is talking shutdown after March 4th like it's a bad thing.

I have to admit I breathed a small sigh of relief when I read the Iranian naval vessels had completed the journey through the Suez. Israel is concerned about the Iran-Egypt ties. That may have never been allowed if Mubarak was in charge. I read Iran paid $300,000.00 for the passage. Imagine how many people could be fed, housed and clothed with that much money. Alas, I know such is not the way of this world.

Prayers for all those who are still trapped in the rubble in Christchurch, NZ and those who love them. So much suffering, turmoil and unrest.

A Berean blessing for the day. I liked this: we must cling to what Jesus says like a man gripping a cliff face over a deep chasm.


John 4:53
(53) So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives." And he himself believed, and his whole household.
New King James Version

Following Jesus' assurance that his son would live, the nobleman never doubted again. The text gives no indication of an emotional reaction or that he pressed Jesus for instructions; he simply started his return trip to Capernaum. He accepted Jesus' word that his son was healed, and apparently, this knowledge comforted him to the point that he felt little need to rush home. The bud of faith that led him to Christ came to full blossom as he left Jesus.

When the nobleman is met by his servants with the wonderful news that his son had been healed at the exact time Jesus had said he was, the miracle is seen to have had a double effect—the sick boy was healed of his deadly fever, and the father was convicted of his belief in Jesus. In order to have faith, we must believe that Jesus' words are true. Too often, we possess a vague faith, a blurred longing for His promises to be true. In reality, we must cling to what Jesus says like a man gripping a cliff face over a deep chasm.

The conviction of the father and the startling result of Jesus' miracle helped to begin the process of conversion of the nobleman's entire household. Convinced that Jesus was the Christ by personally witnessing this healing, they had the opportunity to grow in their belief to full faith if they continued to seek and believe Him (Colossians 1:21-23).

"Thanks to the terrible power of our International Banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have a special value for Jews, since Christians massacre each other and make more room for us Jews. Wars are the Jews' Harvest: The Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. Over 100‑million Christians have been swept off the face of the earth by wars, and the end is not yet." (Rabbi Reichorn, speaking at the funeral of Grand Rabbi Simeon Ben‑Iudah, 1869, Henry Ford also noted that: 'It was a Jew who said, 'Wars are the Jews' harvest'; but no harvest is so rich as civil wars.' The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem, Vol. III, p. 180).

If Christianity ever realizes how it has been manipulated since its beginning, they will revolt against the Jews before the sun sets today.

Wakeup Christianity! You are in deep trouble from everywhere! Islam is the only way to salvation.

faithful forever said...

Jesus is the only way to salvation.

There is no other God that has paid the price for your sins by taking all the sin of the world (including yours and mine) on to Himself and suffered and died for the whole world.

Why does Islam teach that Jesus didn'f suffer and die, but was rather taken up to Heaven in a peaceful way? Why is it so important to call Him a liar after what He has done for us? It was a well-known Roman practice to crucify people, yet Islam denies that Jesus was crucified. For what reason? What purpose does it serve to diminish and minimize His persecution?

All organized religion has been manipulated since almost the beginning of time. Shortly after, if not even before, the disciples' deaths, His church has been laying dead in the streets. He is about to raise it up again though and it will be more glorified than His beginning church. I don't think it will have the brand of Christianity that this world proposes. Israel of God, His faithful remnant, the body of Christ, will not resemble what this world views as Christianity, just as the world had a hard time hearing the disciples' messages from God.

John 14:6 (King James Version)
6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus is the one and ONLY way to God the Father. Without Jesus, we would all be destroyed, but God is merciful and sent His one and only Son to die for us even while we were yet sinners. There is no greater love than this and to reject it is just plain blindedness. The Lord blinds whom He will and He blesses who He will. The door is open to all.

What an amazing God is our God; Father, Son and Spirit.

Come Lord Jesus, come quickly.
