THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS: in the clouds, with judgment.

second coming of Jesus, with judgment
Dernier from Wikipedia

An earthquake marked the hour when Christ laid down His life, and another earthquake witnessed the moment when He took it up in triumph.  He who had vanquished death and the grave came forth from the tomb with the tread of a conqueror, amind the reeling of the earth, the flashing of lightning, and the roaring of thunder.When He shall come to the earth again, He will shake “not the earth only, but also heaven.” “The earth shall rell to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed  like a cottage.”  “The heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll;” :the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”  But “the Lord will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of Israel.”  Heb. 12:26; Isaiah 24:20, 34: 4 2 Peter 3:10; Joel 3:16. Joe_3:17; Eze_48:35; Rev_21:3

Physical evidence of the earthquake remains today, as far away as the ancient site of Qumran where the original books of Isaiah and others were found. Never before have we had such physical evidence of the life and death of Jesus with the enemy of God wishing for travelers to not go and bring wealth to Israel.

HOLY WEEK: This week: Again the path from the Mount of Olives overlooking “The Temple Mount” down the slope, past the ancient olive trees, the cave where Jesus met with his disciples, the Tombs of Saints, waiting with HOPE for the HOLY ONE TO APPEAR AGAIN, this time “IN THE CLOUD” and drawing His Sons and Daughters up to His House, and to the NEW JERUSALEM and its GARDEN OF EDEN and the TREE OF LIFE.

The Cloud, The Space, the clouds, the signs in sky, sea, land and air all take our visions beyond the earth to stare into the starry night. And like the artists, we see dimly now, the “light” of our Lord, his birth, his lowly life, his friends wishing for an EARTHLY KINGDOM ….that cannot begin without JUDGMENT…towards those who would continue TO DESTROY.

And this division between those who would destroy, and those who cringe at the power of men to destroy the earth, with four bombs rightly placed, would crack the surface of the earth. And what more could the devil delight in…putting “fear” of God, rather than “cheer” for God to return and end the “temptations of the devil” to DESTROY THE EARTH!

We have come this far, by “evolution” if you please….and it seems “man” has taken “steps downward” towards self destruction, and HOPE remains, that there IS A GOD WHO CARES, and is CAPABLE of destroying the evil one and his power lead us into temptation!

The MAN CAVE, the men dragging children, men and women into SLAVERY – into submission to their plans, sickens me, when the devil points an ugly finger at JESUS…THE GOD, who plans and can destroy the “evil angels”….with our LOYALTY TO ONE WHO KNOWS THE HEARTS, and MINDS of the CHILDREN OF GOD and children of man.

Who do I say that I am? I am a child of God, knowing HIS COMING is the GREATEST POSSIBLE SOLUTION to END HIS CONFLICT, with the angel, who began “this rebellion” against His love, patience and kindness, in NOT DESTROYING THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HE CREATED….but place Lucifer and his angels…ON THIS PLANET, so the other intelligent worlds of people….can see the EVIDENCE FOR A CREATOR!

Even Stephen Hawkins realized, the DANGER of releasing Artificial Intelligence into the world. Who would program “morality” into a robot? How would the robot know, who to destroy and who to save?

TAKE THE CHIP? So the robots will know who to save and who to destroy? OR….Have the “mark” of salvation read plain as day…”I AM SAVED BY THE BLOOD OF THE CREATOR, WHO MADE HIMSELF, to be like a lamb, like your favorite pet, a “dumb” animal. And if you do not have a pet lamb, pet dog, pet cat, or bird then what kind of LOVE can have for Your Creator?

THE MARK on the doors, even today in Egypt, the hands painted red, than pressed on the doorways, express “THE WAY” the “the Hebrew slaves” saved their “first born.”  Can you see the death of Jesus Christ, makes a way for you to love Him or leave Him?

Is Jesus just a dog for you kick out of the house, or is He your friend, defending your right to life, to live, to be just the way He made you?

I too have asked the question, “Why are my fingers crooked like my dads?”  “Why don’t I have the face of an angel?” “Why is my  big toe so short and stubby?” “Why do look more like fat grandma Ordelheide?” “Why are my brother and sisters so lovely?”

And after many years of being with such a talented family…I can see the danger of being too good looking. Beauty can beguile the beholder. And the face of Jesus, left with scars will be the “reminder” of mystery of godliness. When our creator made himself to the “the sacrifice” “the HUMAN SACRIFICE” when He places “all the sins of the world” upon “his own head.” The creator who made Lucifer, did not want to destroy, his most accomplished “work of art.”

How could such a “beautiful” creature, with a beautiful voice, with gems embedded in its making, become such a powerful tool of eager ambition, and wanting to rule the universe? Will Sophia become “our God?”  Or have we reached the place of “creating” our own “slaves?”

And have THE CREATORS of SOPHIA, died with an idea of what a monster they have made?

Chutzpah: The inner strength to believe in your ideas, this spirit of pressing on to know a truth. . . perhaps only you know.

The creative process begins with an idea:

    However: it may elicit a feeling of isolation, instead of being alone, 
ideas need to bounced off a "family" of listeners. And thus begins a need
 to include a larger family. 


I resonate with the sounds I hear where others feel isolated without feedback. This was not how I intended to begin a discussion of how to find a “method” of teaching Bible Symbols.

Ancient civilizations created vocabulary with signs that became symbols.  For the Navajo the closest thing to “a god”  was the Medicine Man, who was “wise” and “watchful” depicted by symbol of an “eye.”

Integrating Gods Wisdom and His Moral standards moves the “all seeing eye of God,” as a blessing or threat and tends to create “heroes” and label “His enemies.”

So why is there a fear of knowing the mind of God? Unless we have something implanted in our “hearts” and “minds” by Our Creator, to instinctively know right from wrong. There would be no need to have God write His Law, if our “hearts” possessed “a spirit” to learn from our mistakes, by sorrow, by a real experience that says: I thought I learned how to prevent “this pain” “this mental anguish? why  am I beating myself up again?

THEREFORE: I must ask, “Do robots learn by making mistakes?” Do they have a moral code? Or do they just “obey” their Creator…without “thinking?”

One would “think” the study of the “letters” used to write Hebrew, would be boring. However: the Egyptian and Hebrew symbol of a “bull”  Proto-Canaanite_-_aleph rightly describes “the horns of power.” Something that has been lost into todays “city” but understood literally when the “bull” is in the pasture, guarding his cows, one must be aware of his nature posture and care in defending calves and cows.

In time the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet, became the ALAPH,  the Horns of the bull, the SOURCE OF POWER, and Gods protective care. . .like David caring for the sheep.

An agrarian society that lives in country with animals will “benefit” from having “bull” in the pasture. And “we” benefit from knowing our God is ALL POWERFUL particularly when “his enemies” the “created angels” he kicked out of heaven, are also “powerful” and tempt us to “think”…”we” cannot “fight” His enemies…the “destroying angels.” (Reveltion 9:11)

GOD then “removes” His protective power, to give us a chance to see if “we” “like” to try and “conquer” these fallen angels or “trust in Him” and “His power”  “to save” to the utmost?”

So “why” are we “fearful” of learning  new “names” for Our Creator God?

Why is there a “fear” of studying The Revelation of His love, His will, His power to save, protect and love us?

What “symbol” of GOD…do I truly “fear.” ???

If I am not trusting GOD, the BULL, the ONE GIVEN TO US, to protect and defend His Government….then I am “vexing” His Holy Spirit….because GOD IS GOOD….ALL THE TIME….I want to be in the “pasture” among the cows…where He leads us beside “the still water” rather than through the “rapids” where I fear the “house rocks” that foretell a “coming rapids” I “hear” the “sound” of “thundering water ahead.” My “fear level” is awakened, my pulse beats stronger, my knuckles turn white, as I grasp the rope, or tube, or side of the boat, and “I FEAR”…no evil…..for WHATEVER IS AHEAD….HE KNOWS…He has ways to fix the “the rudder” on the boat….to take me where I NEED TO GO….to LEARN THE LESSON…..of TRUSTING IN THE BULL…..The alaph….the bull…the all powerful God, is the First letter in the Hebrew alphabet….and the tav….THE CROSS….is the LAST LETTER that takes us to the literal cross, where Jesus died…His blood flowed….with the “water” to “infect” us all….with desire to reach “safety”…even on “another shore.”

So, “Why do the Hebrew Children enjoy learning Torah…the alphabet…the pictures…the meaning behind the letters?”  ITS FUN! ITS EDUCATIONAL….and ITS SOMETHING TO DO WITH OTHERS….our own age….and at 71, my happy age is eleven. I LOVE TO STUDY, LEARN AND FEEL THE KNOWLEDGE BEING…brought to me….at my level….a KID…A KID AGAIN…enjoying a language that can still be read….on ancient monuments…being unearthed, that show King David lived by the Gihon spring the only source of water around Jerusalem.

Until the Romans came with their “arches” to bring “water” from the “wells” near Bethlehem, did the city of Jerusalem, move to higher ground.

Why can’t learning…Bible Symbols be fun?






INSPIRATION tells us “he that speaks from himself seeks his own glory: but he that seeks the glory of Him that sent him, the same is sture and no unrighteousness is in him.” John 7:18

Copy of Copy of Israel2011 204
Oh Jerusalem, you who kill the saints and prophets . . .How I longed to gather you under my wings like hen gathers her chicks.

Looking West, at the “Temple Mount” the Eastern Gate was closed by the Muslims for fear the Messiah would come back through the Eastern Gate. They bury their dead at the foot of the Temple Mount, thinking “no Jew” would wish to be defiled by the dead, and would not come through a cemetery. Muslims recognize the prophet Jesus as the Jewish Messiah and honor Mary as a holy woman. In this case, the Catholics and Muslims worship the same idol, the Mother of Jesus.

. . .by denying Jesus as The Messiah Jesus gave the Jews  “. . .a test by which the true teacher might be distinguished from the deceiver:  “He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh the glory of Him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” John 7:18  He that seeks his own glory is speaking only from himself.  The spirit of self-seeking betrays its origin.  But Christ was seeking the glory of God.  This was the evidence of His authority as a teacher of the truth.”

“Jesus gave the rabbis an evidence of His divinity by showing that he read their hearts.  Ever since the healing at Bethesda they had been plotting His death.   Thus they were themselves breaking the law which they professed to be defending.  “Did not Moses give you the law,” He said, “and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?”  (Apparently Muslims to not keep the law of God that says, “Thou shall not kill, Exodus 20:13” Muslims families get paid when their sons and daughters kill the infidel )

“Like a swift flash of light these words revealed to the rabbis that pit of ruin into which they were about to plunge.   For an instant they were filled with TERROR! They saw they were in conflict with Infinite Power. (The Jewish Priests had no power or authority to break the commandments of God, written by the finger of God.) They saw that they were in conflict with with Infinite Power. (The High Priests of the Jews would “use” the Romans, Pilate, Herod, to do their dirty work of crucifying Jesus) But they would not be warned.  In order to maintain their influence with the people, their murderous designs must be concealed.  Evading the question of Jesus, they exclaimed, “Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill THee?”  They insinuated that the wonderful works of Jesus were instigated by an evil spirit.

“To this insinuation Christ gave no heed.  He went on to show that His work of healing at Bethesda was in harmony with the Sabbath law, and that was justified by the interpretation which the Jews themselves put upon the law.  He said, “Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; . . .and ye on the Sabbath day circumcise a man.” According to the law, every child must be circumcised on the eighth day.   Should the appointed time fall upon the Sabbath, the rite must then be performed.  How much more must it be in harmony with the law to make a man “every whit whole on the Sabbath day.” And he warned them to “judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”

Desire of Ages p. 456

Several thoughts have come to mind, about the idea of “Thou shall not kill” in Exodus 20:13. Men and women in  wartime, the medics, the nurses, the ambulance and transport teams can be helpful without “killing” and can “save lives.

And the mental anxiety, of killing/destroying human life, is a curse for life, and post traumatic stress is “guilt” for what they have done… in war. . .that lasts a lifetime.

The Sabbath issue came up in Jesus day, when the Priests wanted to kill “the heretic” and “rebel” and his gang of 12 disciples. . .and the 7th Day, of Creation week, not the first day, but the “completion” of the work of creating the earth, water, land, animals, fish and man, would be reason to celebrate and “rest” at sundown on Friday night, until sundown on Sabbath. And in Jerusalem, the streets are quiet, the Jewish area is closed on Saturday, but Saturday night the streets are filled with families, children, soldiers, and visitors all wanting to join in the celebration of “rest.”  Jesus reminded the Jews to have a “heart” in keeping “the law.”

“Circumcision” became a way to show the Priests, they were “breaking the law” by doing it on the 7th Day. The “tradition” of circumcision, was and is continued by mothers, who wish to have the foreskin removed, as healthy way to keep bacteria and infection away. The wives of the Jews, have less uterine cancer too.

How did the “Sabbath” became a day when the children go to “Sunday School” ?  When Constantine the Pope, decided the Roman Empire would become the Holy Roman Empire, and no longer would there be a worship of the “stars” and “planets” like Venus, Neptune, Jupiter, those “statues” would be renamed and now the Sun God, would become an idol named Saint Peter.  . . whose “foot” has almost been “kissed” away by those who bow down to idols.

Jesus desired us to find “a heart” to love Him. . .and “see” His Father, also paid the price of watching His Son die. . .on a Friday, The Preparation Day for Sabbath, would happen to be THE DAY, the Jews would RUSH to get JESUS DEATH over, because they would be “working” on Sabbath, Saturday, the day of rest. But Jesus died of broken heart, rejected by his own people, in order to LIVE AGAIN and prove the SON OF GOD, the DAUGHTERS OF GOD, have a heart to live again, by being saved by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ!




Fabulous! Through the darkness of angry clouds, there comes a space like the “eye of God,” with indescribable glory. . .Jesus returning with His Father and Gods Angels surround the earth . . .

Time of Jacobs Trouble – leads to deliverance from Satan and the earth

“Satan influenced Esau to march against Jacob, so he will stir up the wicked to destroy God’s people in the time of trouble. As Satan accused Jacob, he will urge his accusations against the people of God.  Satan numbers the world as his subjects; but the little company who keep the commandments of God are resisting his supremacy. If Satan could blot them from the earth, his triumph would be complete.  He sees that holy angels are guarding them, and he infers that their sins have been pardoned; but he does not know that their cases have been decided in the sanctuary above.   He has an accurate knowledge of the sins, which he has tempted them to commit, and he presents these before God in the most exaggerated light, representing this people to be just as deserving as himself of exclusion from the favor of God.  Satan declares that the Lord cannot in justice forgive their sins and yet destroy him and his angels.  He claims them as his prey and demands that they be given into his hands to destroy.

“As Satan accuses the people of God on account of their sins, the Lord permits him to try them to the uttermost.   (like Job) Their confidence in God, their faith and firmness, will be severely tested.   As they review the past, their hopes sink; for in their whole lives they can see little good.   They are fully conscious of their weakness and unworthiness.   Satan endeavors to terrify them with the thought that their cases are hopeless, that the stain of their defilement will never be washed away.  He hopes so to destroy their faith that they will yield to his temptations and turn from their allegiance to God.

. . .God’s people will be surrounded by enemies who are bent upon their destruction, yet the anguish which they suffer is not a dread of persecution for the truth’s sake; they fear that every sin has not been repented of, and that through some fault in themselves, they will fail to realize the fulfillment of the Saviors promise: “I will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world.” Revelation 3:10

“On every hand they hear the plotting’s of treason and see the active working of rebellion; and there is aroused within them an intense desire, an earnest yearning of soul, that this great apostasy may be terminate and the wickedness of the wicked may come to an end.   But while they plead with God to stay the work of rebellion, it is with a keen sense of self-reproach that they themselves have no more power to resist and urge back the mighty tide of evil.   They fell that had they always employed all their ability in the service of Christ, going forward from strength to strength, Satan’s forces would have less power to prevail against them.

“They afflict their souls before God, pointing to their past repentance of their many sins, and pleading the Savior’s promise: “Let him take hold of My strength, that he may make peace with Me; and he shall make peace with Me.” Isaiah 27: 5 Their faith does not fail because their prayers are not immediately answered.   Though suffering the keenest anxiety, terror, and distress, they do not cease their intercessions.  They lay hold of the strength of God as Jacob laid hold of the Angel; and the language of their souls is: “I will not let Thee go, except Thou bless me.” Great Controversy  p. 619-620

                  . . .” a dense blackness, deeper than the darkness of the night, falls upon the earth. Then a rainbow, shining with the glory from the throne of God, spans the heavens and seems to encircle each praying company.   The angry multitudes are suddenly arrested.   Their mocking cries die away.   The objects of their murderous rage are forgotten.   With fearful forebodings they gaze upon the symbol of God’s covenant and long to be shielded from its over powering brightness.

“By the people of God a voice, clear and melodious, is heard, saying, “LOOK UP.” and lifting their eyes to the heavens, they behold the bow of promise.   The black, angry clouds that covered the firmament are parted, and like Stephen they look up steadfastly into heaven and see the glory of God and the Son of man seated upon His throne.  In His divine form they discern eh marks of His humiliation; and from His lips they hear the request presented before the His Father and the holy angels: “I will that they also, whom Thou hast given me, be with Me where I am.” John 17:24.   Again a voice, musical and triumphant, is heard, saying: “They come! they come! holy, harmless, and undefiled.   They have kept the word of My patience; they shall walk among the angels;” and the pale, quivering lips of those who have held fast their faith utter a shout of victory.

“It is at midnight that God manifests His powers for the deliverance of His people.  The sun appears, shining in its strength.   Signs and wonder follow in quick successions.  The wicked look with terror and amazement upon the scene, while the righteous behold with solemn joy the tokens of their deliverance.   Everything in nature seems turned out of its course.   The streams cease to flow.   Dark, heavenly clouds come up and clash against each other.  In the midst of the angry heavens is one clear space of indescribable glory, whence comes the voice of God like the sound of many waters, saying: “It is done” Revelation 16:17.

. . .”Through a rift in the clouds there beams a star whose brilliance is increased fourfold in contrast with the darkness.   It speaks HOPE and JOY to the faithful, but severity and wrath to the transgressors of God’s law.   Those who have sacrificed all for Christ are now secure, hidden as in the secret of the Lord’s pavilion.   They have been tested, and before the world and the despisers of truth they have evinced their fidelity to Him who died for them.   A marvelous change has come over those who have held fast their integrity in the very face of death.   They have been suddenly delivered from the dark and terrible tyranny of men transformed to demons.   Their faces, so lately pale, anxious, and haggard, are now aglow with wonder, faith, and love.   Their voices rise in triumphant son: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.   Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and thought the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.” Psalms 46:1-3.
