“And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, ‘But I was
free born.’ “(Acts 22:28)
Will we give up our freedom to be under a “man” 666? Or will we defend our right to be, to live, to bow down and worship our God in Heaven, 777?
This is not about, “What will we do to defend Israel, or promote peace!” It is about our personal choice to be defended by God’s Angels and trust in Him 100% because Jesus has conquered “death” and we will live again, to glorify His Name and Kingdom of Truth!
GOD BLESS AMERICAN and people everywhere who fought with the Sword of Truth!
I AM BORN FREE! I AM BORN TO BE FREE! I AM BORN TO BE A CHILD OF GOD! Praise the Lord I have a choice to be defended by His personal body guards!
Dare someone will say, “I AM Loyal to God and HIS KINGDOM and this is not treason against USA!
If everyone would choose to not bear false witness about Jesus and God, we would not be in this mess! They are friends, aliens from outer space, who are on the side of FREEDOM within boundaries, for Heaven is Holy Society with dignity and respect for their Government and God! Jesus is the King of the Earth!
“Every soul is fully known to Jesus as if he were the only one for whom the Saviour died. The distress of every one touches His heart. The cry for aid reaches His ear. He came to draw all men unto Himself. he bids them, “Follow Me,” and His Spirit moves upon their hearts to draw them to come to Him. Many refuse to be drawn. Jesus knows who they are. He also knows who gladly hear His call, and are ready to come under His pastoral care. He says, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” He cares for each one as if there were not another on the face of the earth.
“He calls His own sheep by name, and leads them out . . .And the sheep follow Him: for they know His voice.” The Scripture says “Thou leddest Thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.” Through the prophet, Jesus declares, “I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee.” He compels none to follow Him. “I drew them,” He says, “with cords of man with bands of love.” Ps 777:20, Jer 31:3; Hosea 11:4.
“It is not the fear of punishment, or the hope of everlasting rewards that leads the disciples of Christ to follow Him. They behold the Saviour’s matchless love, revealed throughout His pilgrimage on earth, from the manger of Bethlehem to Calvary’s cross, and the sight of Him attracts, it softens and subdues the soul. Love awakens in the heart of the beholders. They hear His voice, and they follow Him.
“As the shepherd goes before his sheep, himself first encountering the perils of the way, so does Jesus with His people. “When He putteth forth His own sheep, He goes before them.” The way to heaven is consecrated by the Saviour’s footprints. The path may be steep and rugged, but Jesus has traveled that way; His feet have pressed down the cruel thorns, to make the pathway easier for us. Every burden that we are called to bear He himself has borne.
“Though now He has ascended to the presence of God, and shares the throne of the universe, Jesus has lost none of His compassionate nature. Today the same tender, sympathizing heart is open to all the woes of humanity. Today the hand that was pierced is reached forth to bless more abundantly His people that are in the world. “And they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.”
“However much a shepherd may love his sheep, he loves his sons and daughters more.”
When I read these passages of hope, love and understand by experience, where I have had to go . . .following his path. . .I never wish to see anyone I’ve known to have to face “themselves” like I have, and find “themselves” also in need of a Saviour…then I find, as I look back on my life…those ups and downs that made me frown at myself. . .were just what I needed to humble me. And I got low enough to know, He had to take me where I would learn, to appreciate what all he has done for me, both good and bad, to humble me. Ain’t education grand? lol
Here I sit, with crickets chirping, the Who Owl hooting, the life and death struggle of garden plants ending their time of giving me fruit. And in this content stage of wondering, I surmise: I know nothing. Except tomorrow may be THE DAY HE COMES AGAIN, to show THE WORLD, He can and will, RAISE THE DEAD and TAKE THEM HOME, but not the ones who crucified Jesus.
Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Dan 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Dan 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
Pilate: The wishy washy man who thought he could flog Jesus, but the Jews said, “Crucify Him and let his blood (his death) be upon our heads.”
King Herod: Who tried to kill the prophet John the Baptizer, but saw in Jesus the same kind of man who say, “You should not be living with your brother’s wife.”
The duo High Priests, Father and Son: Who claimed, “One should die” to save us or we perish.
These three, were the leadership, of One Nation Under God, who crucified His Son.
My faith is not about “which kingdom will last”….GODS KINGDOM has a problem with rebellion and denying His Holy Spirit. So, I do not want to rebel against God, and vex His Holy Spirit, because he will turn against me and become my enemy.
Isa_63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
The rise and fall of KINGDOMS, took place because folks did not expect Him, to turn and become their enemy.
I want to be on HIS SIDE in this great controversy between good and evil.
“The Lord estimates as of supreme value the holiness of His people, and He permits reverses to come upon individuals, upon families, and upon churches, that His people may see their danger, and humble their hearts before Him in repentance. He will treat His backslidden ones with tenderness. He will speak pardon to them, and clothe them with the garments of Christ’s righteousness. He will honor them with His presence.
“In this, the great Day of Atonement, it is our duty to confess our sins and acknowledge God’s mercy and love in pardoning our transgressions. Let us thank the Lord for the warnings He has given to save us from our perverse was. Let us witness to His goodness by revealing a change in our lives. If those to whom the Lord has sent reproof, warning them that they are not walking in His way, will repent, and with humility and contrition of heart make confession the Lord will surely receive them again into favor. . . .
“A season of great trial is before us. It becomes us now to use all our capabilities and gifts in advancing the work of God. The powers the Lord has given us are to be used to buildup, not to discourage and to tear down. . . .In all ages of the church God’s appointed messengers have exposed themselves to reproach and persecution for the truth’s sake. But wherever God’s people may be forced to go, even though, like the beloved disciple, they are banished to desert islands, Christ will know where they are, and will strengthen and bless them, filling them with peace and joy. . . .
“He will purify His church even as He purified the temple at the beginning and close of His ministry on earth. All that He brings upon the church in test and trial comes that His people may gain deeper piety and more strength to carry the triumphs of the cross to all parts of the world. He has a work for all to do.”
This quote for Ellen White p. 260 for September 10, in her morning watch book, SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD has been my companion as my sons grew up, we shared these words, each morning, as we ate breakfast together, all feet under the table.
Mrs. White is an inspiration to me, she understood, by experience what a profit she was to those who united their hearts with God in His work. Lately I took it to heart and I claimed THIS PROMISE:
Rev_3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
When I looked up the text to BUY OF ME GOLD TRIED IN THE FIRE, I did not know it was in Revelation. But I do see, the conflicts going on all around me, in the signs in the GALAXY COMING OUR WAY, to take us HOME . . .in the fires, floods, earthquakes and the darkest spiritual understanding or lack of understanding….these things must come…to separate the wheat from the chaff. It is both sad and enlightening, that God is purifying “us” to be “His Temple” where He can abide with me.
When I invited God to test me, purify me, make of me true gold, He answered my prayer!
You can LAUGH HERE! As I must LAUGH TOO! I can’t think of time, when so many things in my life, must make me stop to THINK….what it takes to be at peace in the middle of a hurricane of troubles surrounding me…lol YES, I can have peace in the eye of the hurricane! YES, I learned this before. Dark Clouds do have a silver lining, when the sun is behind them. I have the Sun of Righteousness in my heart. I pray today, its light comes as a blessing to you.
God Bless You and Keep You and May His Face Shine Upon YOU TOO!
“To the last of His work Christ is a sin-pardoner. As deepest midnight, as the Star of Bethlehem was about to sink into oblivion, lo there shines amid the moral darkness with distinct brightness the faith of a dying sinner as he lays hold upon a dying Saviour.
Such faith may be represented by the eleventh hour laborers who receive as much reward as do those who have labored for many hours. The thief asked in faith, in penitence, in contrition. He asked in earnestness, as if he fully realized that Jesus could save him if He would. And the hope in his voice was mingled with anguish as he realized, that if he did not, he would be lost, eternally lost. He cast his helpless, dying soul and body on Jesus Christ.
He had heard Pilate declare, “I find no fault in him.” John 19:4. He had marked His godlike bearing, and His pitying forgiveness of His tormentors. . . .Among the passers-by he hears many defending Jesus. He hears them repeat His words, and tell of His works. The conviction comes . . .to him that this is the Christ. . . .When condemned for his crime, the thief had become hopeless and despairing; but strange, tender thoughts now spring up. He calls to mind all he has heard of Jesus. . . .He has heard the the words of those who believed in Jesus and followed Him weeping. . . .The Holy Spirit illuminates his mind, and little by little the chain of evidence is joined together. In Jesus, bruised, mocked, and hanging upon the cross, he sees the Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world. Hope is mingled with anguish in his voice as the helpless, dying soul casts himself upon a dying Saviour. . . .Quickly the answer came. Soft and melodious the tone, full of love, compassion, and power the words: Verily I say unto thee today, Thou shalt be with Me in Paradise. . . .To the penitent thief came the perfect peace of acceptance with God.”
These are not my words, but of the Prophetess sent to the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Ellen White, who preferred to be called a “messenger.” In her writings, in her life, in her home and family, she was a “star” of light, a blessing, a mother, grandmother and writer inspired by the Holy Spirit. Her daily devotions SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, has been an inspiration shared with sons on a daily basis. It was enough scriptures not to long, not to forceful, but just right, for growing boys to take time to meditate on the peaceful, kind words of Jesus Christ.
To my sons, has come back to me, those many memories of working together to get the work done, so we can play together and have fun. When they were very young, if they got finished with their bath, we would have time to crawl into bed, and I would read Roger and book. Dr. Scarry’s little books for kids, was about little worm, who taught my sons to say, “Please and Thank you.” Then when baby Walter came alone five years later, it was Roger who read to baby Walter at night after he took his bath. Those were the years, I wanted to be right there in bed with them, but I looked on…permitting the older to lead the younger.
When Roger became a father, he too, crawled into bed with his son, and he read to Caleb, and then they said their prayers, and turned off the light.
When you have parents, who care, who love to enjoy seeing from the eyes of child, the great big world of nature, there was never enough time for us to walk and talk, out there in Gods world as we saw all he made that was good, and we knew behind the evil, was something bad, and one day Jesus would come and end the reign of terror.
THE BLOOD MOON on July 27, 2018 around 3 p.m. Our earths longest lunar eclipse could only be seen on the other side of the earth. It lasted 103 minutes. The planets were arranged on the same side of the earth as the moon. The masses of planets, create a magnetic pull towards the earth, is a very unusual astronomical event. Scientists “saw” the magnetic pull of these planets….as an event that can and is affecting our planet. NASA covered the event, from the canary islands, Slooth Telescope, and Australia.
Act 2:19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
Act 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
Act 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Joe 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. (please read in context)
THE BLOOD MOON comes before the great and terrible day of THE LORD comes. The coming of the Lord…brings judgment…to the wicked it is unwelcome…to the followers of Christ…it is a welcome and joyful event, to be forgiven, to be loved by God, and we prepare to be beamed up to His New Jerusalem.
Joe 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
International Standard Version
Act 2:20 The sun will become dark, and the moon turn to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord.
Act 2:21 Then whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
Act 2:22 “Fellow Israelis, listen to these words: Jesus from Nazareth was a man authenticated to you by God through miracles, wonders, and signs that God performed through him among you, as you yourselves know.
Act 2:23 After he was arrested according to the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified this very man and killed him by the hands of lawless men.
Act 2:24 But God raised him up and put an end to suffering of death, since it was impossible for him to be held by it.
Act 2:25 For David says about him, ‘I always keep my eyes on the Lord, for he is at my right hand so that I cannot be shaken.
Act 2:26 That is why my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices, yes, even my body still rests securely in hope.
Rev_12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
It is right to be frightened by GODS LOVE…that They would save and even seek out the “lost sheep” like me. For this I am thankful!
Faithful men, who were obedient to the promptings of God’s ‘Spirit and the teachings of His word, were to proclaim this warning to the world. They were to take heed to the “sure word of prophecy,” the “light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the daystar arise.” 2 Peter 1: 19 They had been seeking the knowledge of God more than all hid treasures, counting it “better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.” Proverbs 3:14 And the Lord revealed to them the great things of the kingdom. “The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His covenant.” Psalm 25:14
It was not the scholarly theologians who had an understanding of this truth, and engaged in its proclamation. Had these been faithful watchmen, diligently and prayerfully searching the Scripture, they would have known the time of night; the prophecies would have opened to them the events about to take place. But they did not occupy this position, and the message was given by “humbler men.” Said Jesus: “Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you.” John 1 :35 Whoever is with singleness of purpose seeking to do God’s will, earnestly heeding the light already given, will receive great light; to that soul some star of heavenly radiance will be sent to guide him into all truth.
The prophecy of Ellen White about an event in New York City, where buildings melted like pitch and firemen could not put out the fire, had to be repeated. Revelation 18 was not understood, nor was it “opened” to show the curse on the church, that “killed THE PROPHET JESUS CHRIST, and His reminder to church, like sick pea green horse, that is neither dead or alive.
Rev 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Rev 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Nicolaitans made the law of God of no effect. In 1 Kings 11:4 the sin of Solomon began the fall of the Spiritual Kingdom of God. “For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.” Moral decline is the sign of of the Nicolaitans, who made the law of God void. Luke 12:10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
Ancient men saw the “stars” fall, like meteorites. But the “daystar” is the “light” coming from Star of the East, that leads us to “THE LIGHT” that shines upon the Sun of Righteousness, who comes with healing in His wings.
One law of God demands He can read our minds. Exo 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. Exo 20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.
Exo 20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. Exo 20:20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.
The motives of mankind are sometimes not kind. But God demands, we show dignity and respect to our neighbors house, wife, servants, ox or ass, or anything belongs to our neighbors.
MAD MAGAZINE had a cartoon that stuck in my head. The cave man wanted to steal a good looking woman, but he was failing. So he lifted his arm, and the “smell” made her drop to her feet. He then threw her over his shoulder and took her into his man cave.
When men can steal their neighbors wife, children, and animals, and the world looks on…then: no one, and no child, can feel safe. Respect for parents, begins a respect for a higher power. And I’ve found My Creator, in the lives of both my parents, wishing for me to reach something they called, “My Best.” I had only to do my best, and God would do the rest.
But least you think, this is a model child, I also found: Exo 23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. Exo 23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
I like the idea, my angel, goes before me, to take me to the place, which God has prepared, to teach me, by the things I have suffered. Some people, in my ignorance I have hurt. Thankfully, those I loved and those who loved me, forgave me, and we became lifelong friends forever and a day. I needed to learn about love. And God provided me the pain, to know what unrequited love feels like. And perhaps no one but Jesus Christ, truly understands unrequited love.
Unrequited love or one-sided love is love that is not openly reciprocated or understood as such by the beloved. The beloved may not be aware of the admirer’s deep and strong romantic affection, or may consciously reject it. The Merriam Webster Online Dictionary defines unrequited as “not reciprocated or returned in kind”.
The depth of love required to give us freedom to love God or leave God, required the sacrifice of the Son of God. No one can be “forced” into understanding the pain it takes to give freedom its certain ring. . .like Patrick Henry epitomized THE BEAUTY OF liberty IS WORTH DYING FOR. “Give me liberty of give me death.”
What will you do with Jesus? Accept we have a Creator who loves us enough, to die for OUR LIBERTY, to love Him or leave Him?
Christ the Revelator declares that there will exist unbelief concerning His second coming. As the people of Noah’s day “knew no until the Flood came, and took them all away; so.” in the words of our Savior, “shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:39. When the professed people of God are uniting with the world, living as they live, and joining with them in forbidden pleasures; when the luxury of the world becomes the luxury of the church; when marriage bells are chiming, and all are looking forward to many years of worldly prosperity–then suddenly as the lightning flashes from the heavens, will come the end of their bright visions and elusive hopes.
As God sent His servant to warn the world of the coming Flood, so He sent chosen messengers to make known the nearness of the final judgment. As the prediction of the preacher of righteousness, so in the past many, even of the professed people of God, scoffed at the words of warning.
As the arguments from the prophetic periods were found to be impregnable, opposers endeavored to discourage investigation of the subject by teaching the prophecies were sealed. Ministers and people declare today that prophecies of Daniel and Revelation were incomprehensible mysteries. But Christ directed His disciples to the words of the prophet Daniel concerning events to take place in their time, and said: Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)And the assertion Revelation is a mystery, not to be understood, is contradicted by the very title of the book: Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Rev 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Rev 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hearthe words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
A BOOK OPENED
Says the prophet: “Blessed is he that readeth”— there are those who will not read; the blessing is not or them. “And they that hear”–there are some refuse to hear anything concerning the prophecies; the blessing is not for this class. “And keep those things which are written therein” –many refuse to heed the warnings and instructions contained in Revelation; none of these can claim the blessings promised. All who ridicule the subjects of the prophecy and mock at the symbols here solemnly given all who refuse to reform their lives and to prepare for the coming of the Son of man, will be unblessed.
In view of the testimony of Inspiration, how dare men teach Revelation is a mystery beyond the reach of human understanding? It is a mystery revealed, a book opened. The study of Revelation directs the mind to the prophecies of Daniel, and both present most important instruction , given of God to men/women/youth, concerning events to take place at the close of this world’s history..
John saw the position, dangers, conflicts, and final deliverance of the people of God. He records the closing messages which are to ripen the harvest of the earth, either as sheaves for the heavenly garner or as fagots for the fires of destruction. Subjects of vast importance for the last church who should turn from error to truth might be instructed concerning the perils and conflicts before them. None need be in darkness in regard to what is coming upon the earth.
Why, then, this widespread ignorance concerning an important part of Holy Writ? Why this this general reluctance to investigate its teachings? It is the result of a studied effort of the prince of darkness to conceal from men that which reveals his deception. For this reason, Christ the Revelator, foreseeing the warfare that would be waged against the study of the Revelation, pronounced a blessing upon all who should read, hear, and observe the words of the prophecy.
LIGHT IN DARKNESS FOUND IN PARALLEL PROPHECIES
The principles of God’s dealing with men/women are ever the same. The important movement of the present have their parallel in those of the past and the experience of the church in former ages has lessons of great value for out own time.
Consider the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. How could a child born in Bethlehem, saved from death, by going to Egypt, live in Nazareth, walk the streets of Jerusalem, teach by Galilee, and have THE UNITED NATIONS, declare, there is no evidence of God, anywhere in Israel?
How could GOD know, there is no man or woman however honored of Heaven who has ever attained to a full understanding of the great plan of redemption, or even to a perfect appreciation of the divine purpose in the work for his own time.
The very fact jihadist, Muslims, and those who have bowed down to idols, are finding a source of peace of mind, that comes out of unrest, confusion, and blindness, because no one wants to live in spiritual darkness! No one wants to be without a spiritual light. This is work of the Holy Spirit. Eph_4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Gal_5:5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. Mal_4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
NOT A KINGDOM ON FIRE, COMING TO DESTROY US!
The Kingdom of God, does not destroy, He comes to reveal His Righteousness, like the SUN, that purifies the air, helps the plants grow and ripens the grain. Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
THE DREAM OF THE KING OF BABYLON
Consider the dream of the King of Babylon revealing the prophecy of the world during the time Daniel and the three Hebrew sons in 605 B.C. – 536 B.C.
History does not deny Babylon was the greatest Kingdom of the then known world. Medo-Persian Empire reigned, Greece came with Alexander, Rome grew from its roots in Sun Worship, to become a persecuting Empire, who forced worship to themselves, the Caesars. Today were are among the divided Kingdom of the World in 2018.
On 9-11-2001 a gift of the “rock” was placed at Ground Zero and dedicated fulling Daniel 2:45.
Dan 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
Our world is certainly broken, into kingdoms, that will be like pieces of iron, brass, clay, silver, and gold, that will not hold together.
A WORLD WIDE EARTHLY KINGDOM, on this earth, is not predicated. The stone, cut without hands, at Ground Zero, was predicted by Daniel from around 605 B. C. to 2018 = approximately 2623 years ago.
This stone, cut without hands, was dedicated as the Cornerstone of the Freedom Tower.
Prophecy, that comes down to our day, 2623 years, proves the Bible, but more than that, it proves that GOD KNEW, the devil could not create, or recreate the mess he made our planet, with our help of course. His “created being” like you and I, are not robots….and they are not to be worshiped. They cannot create A LAW, like the Ten Commandments, that “forces” us to bow down to them.
The Ten Laws of Love, that establishes boundaries for man, must be understood, as the Laws of the Universe, with a special concession to the CREATOR, who knew, where sin and lawlessness would require FREEDOM to obey or disobey….with “your life” hanging with JESUS ON THE CROSS, knowing HE triumphed over evil….and gave you the GIFT OF LIFE. . .when you see HE KNEW IT ALL THE TIME, a human sacrifice would be at the hands of the created being, Lucifer. The dark angel has a past. He lived and loved in the Heavenly Jerusalem. Some say the City of ancient Babylon, was created after the template of the Heavenly Jerusalem, where a river runs through it.
There in the Heavenly Jerusalem, is the Tree of Life, the Garden of Eden and rest and restoration of the Earth, will begin with devouring our earth, in flames of fire. Jesus said, I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? Luke 12:29
What happens after the Holy Spirit is poured out? Then comes the reign of a King, like a benevolent dictator, loved by all, who call upon his name, King of the Saints.
I would like to walk on the golden streets in the Heavenly Jerusalem, like I did at Union College in Lincoln Nebraska, where President Bieber took time to walk, smile and greet his students, like an old friend. Those were the days, when a bus ride down town to Lincoln, was all we needed to go back to study. Saturday afternoons at Pioneer Park, helped us taken in the joy of walking, through the seasons of fall, winter and then June, when the skies and farms are rich with flowing colors. Yet to be in that welcoming into His Kingdom, and a city, that reaches over 7,000,000 feet high. I wish to be there with all my old friends made new a young again! (lol) And I wish to think, somehow the Daniel prophecy, will help someone find, the PEACE OF MIND GOD OFFERS to all who call upon His name. GOD is better than 911! God needs no GPS to find you! GOD CARES!
Take a moment and consider where we are in the life-cycle of our Earth. I think we are due for make-over! Bless all who come in the name of the Lord. May we meet and greet each other, as winners, as students in His WORD!
GOD DOES NOT MAKE JUNK…think more highly of yourself, and be His son or daughter!
The varied colors of the earth, sky and Columbine portends no false surprise. But wear a red dress, get locked out church, because you “look” like a prostitute.
But there in THE BIG RED STADIUM . . .I found friends of certain color, that flock together! . . .no matter the weather.
Image a fort with a window, hanging out of it, a SCARLET CORD… in the city of Jericho as she sits on the plains, west of the Jordan.
Mountains to west, the patch of sand colored earth to the east, the mound of rubble, is where this story appears in the book called Joshua. Later Jesus would come this way, to this mountain for forty days, and he too would be reminded: “Be strong and very courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers. Jos 1:3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. Jos 1:4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.Jos 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Jos 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Jos 1:17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.
Jos 1:18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.
NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY
Joshua 2 Jos 2:1 And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot’s house, named Rahab, and lodged there.
JOSHUA sends two men to spy SECRETLY to view the land. Reconnaissance and Espionage is as old as war itself.
ENTER THE GATES OF JERICHO and the two men entered the house of Rahab the prostitute and stayed there.
THE KING OF JERICHO SENT FOR RAHAB
Jos 2:3 And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine house: for they be come to search out all the country. Jos 2:4 And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus, There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they were:
RAHAB THE PROSTITUTE LIED TO THE KING and DIRECTED THE KING TO SEND HIS MEN EAST
Jos 2:5 And it came to pass about the time of shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out: whither the men went I wot not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them. Jos 2:6 But she had brought them up to the roof of the house, and hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof.
RAHAB SAID:Jos 2:8 And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the roof; Jos 2:9 And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. Jos 2:10 For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. Jos 2:11 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath.
RAHAB ASKS FOR MERCY, BY THE LORD, for good deed.
Jos 2:12 Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father’s house, and give me a true token: Jos 2:13 And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.
THE TWO SPIES SEAL THEIR PROMISE WITH THEIR LIFE
Jos 2:14 And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee.
From the view, down to Jericho, to the east. The king has sent his men east. On the hill of Jericho, to the west, Rahab sent the men to hide.
2:15 Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.
Jos 2:16 And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way.
Jos 2:17 And the men said unto her, We will be blameless of this thine oath which thou hast made us swear.
Jos 2:18 Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father’s household, home unto thee.
Jos 2:19 And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him.
Jos 2:20 And if thou utter this our business, then we will be quit of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.
Jos 2:21 And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window.
Jos 2:22 And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not.
Jos 2:23 So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them:
AT YOM KIPPUR on THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, the Jewish children, buy a scarlet cord, to remember Rahab the prostitute, who saved her family, and the JEWS, from being destroyed by the king of Jericho.
SCARLET: The color given to “label” women, prostitutes, and to the sons and daughters of of the pioneers and Cornhuskers, it is OK to WEAR RED!
Bless You and read the REST OF THE STORY…in Joshua 2, HOW GOD MELTED THE HEARTS OF MEN, and gave the FEAR, because of the crossing of the RED SEA.
NO ONE BUT GOD, can TAKE CLAIM THE BATTLE WON…when the walls of Jericho came down by MIGHTY EARTHQUAKE. But Rahab is still a woman of faith, honored by the Jews, who see “in the enemy” there are camps of those who “‘WISH TO BE SAVED.”
