F.A.M.I.L.Y. (Final Arrangement Making In Latter Years)

L.A. Marzulli told of alien abductions, in light of his teaching, can we seriously believe it’s true?

The ‘Debrief‘ is a required assessment of new ideas due to teaching or experience that is so dramatically presented that the subject has lost his normal beliefs. I woke up from napping today to think of the acronym for the title and the words just fell in line. Is that God? Does this mean a new series? And of course I heard, ‘YES’.

The thoughts, however were about a few of our family’s relationships, none of them are convincingly close or having shown desire to be close, and require more prayer than we presently offer . . . and I even had the thought, which family member is not really human? (Well where did that thought come from? — The CHP prophecy conference.)

Well-well, there I go thinking again. But according to the conference articles I posted last week, I learned that ‘historic’ documents, not part of holy canon, do have some credibility. Changed my whole perspective to interpreting holy Scripture. This result has spured my desire to learn if others feel the same . . . so I sent messages to each of the couples, heard back from one, a good paragraph full, and visited with another, who promised to watch his DVD’s and get back to me.

A SIMPLE DEBRIEF FOR A DRAMATICALLY POWERFUL PROPHECY CONFERENCE

My plan is to present this to my six friends who attended the conference and request they help answer a few questions, or not, purely voluntary. I am a trusted acquaintance with them as I suppose I can be. They know me, as a reasonable fellow, with a likeable personality, having shared life-group meetings socially. We should agree here. (The future is our mutual forbearance because of our faith.)

It was a big project! To be objective, designed to present a lot of biblical review in light of historical facts. We all learned some things. It was authoritative, and made very practical sense. Enough-so that basic doctrine seems stretched. I can just say the Lord wants me to facilitate such an exercize; and he should ask the questions, right?

Our church family fellowship puts a premium on such teaching ministries. The teachers are world renowned. And the topic is current, especially for the next six or seven weeks. Not everyone took notes, so can you remember something noticable that you did not know? Did that surprise you? Can we regain proper perspective with this?

SO WHAT?

Each of you can describe what it was you think of feel about the experience. What feelings or attitudes that occurred are you aware of that change from the past, as a direct result to attending the conference. How did you actually learn what is most important to you? Knowing the ‘Signs of the Times‘ is how meaningful to you?

Proverbs 4:23 (AMP) “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.” Deuteronomy 4:9 (AMP) “Only take heed, and guard your life diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen and lest they depart from your [mind and] heart all the days of your life. Teach them to your children and your children’s children—” 

THE FAMILY OF WORSHIPPERS ARE LISTENING

I have just posted the above photo, or is it a photo? It is already getting late. I do want to followup the conference, but I cannot do it alone. Please think about anything you might add.

Thanks,


Charles

FUTURE FAITH – Saying yes to life inspite of everything

Dr. Viktor Frankl in 1965, taken from studenpulse.com

HOW OUR SUNDAY REVEALED AN EPIPHANY

It was last night that I heard pastor Bobby Schuller in his message of the Hour of Power program, quote Dr. Viktor Frankl saying, ‘What is to give light, must endure burning‘. My notes got his last name right but my mind thought of the historically famous Austrian psychiatrist that my pastor of 50 years ago told me earnestly about. (The special song for Hour of Power was powerfully sung by Miss Danielle Evans called ‘Help‘)

Now, waking up with coffee this morning, in preparing my notebook for the news and Liberty Convocation, which showed Donald Trump getting his PhD in Business, (honorary but none-the-less, aclaimed as just-as-if earned). Dr. Trump gave his testimony of when he became a Christian as a youth in a Presbyterian Church, stating he felt right at home — my mind gave me a clue to find this author quoted by pastor Bobby: ‘Google the quote.’ So I did.

And there the quote was to the letter. And the author was in fact my elder pastor’s reference with this remarkable novel he had written that sold millions of copies. It was called ‘Man’s search for meaning.’ But then I noticed it was originally entitled with a German wording that said in English, ‘Saying yes to life inspite of everything.’

I read his bio briefly and knew he had written the story of his experience in the Nazi prison camp, but what I didn’t know was his parents, brother, wife, and unborn child were all murdered by the evil Nazis. That one fact, caused me to be taken aback with a weeping that I don’t often feel. A sudden striking realization of loss in a person’s life.

THE BRIGHTER THE LIGHT THE HOTTER THE BURNING

I had an epiphany this morning because our family recently lost our son to cancer, and it was a sudden shock. We all expected (trusted believing) him to recover and be in remission. But that is not all of it. The quote that pastor Bobby used to describe the meaning of Incarnational Theology — a deeper revelation — that a ‘burning‘ is due to all of us willing to shine — as a light for God. (Psalms 66:13 AMP burnt offerings, entire consecration)

Personally, in my carnal flesh, I am moved enough to realize that this is the answer to my prayer for getting any and all wickedness out of my conscious soul. Wickedness is defined as independence from God. He has made himself available for me, at great cost; certainly I am learning to be more dependent on him.

Is there a question of how to make myself more open to hearing and obeying words from the heavenlies? Yes – how do I discern the difference between a wicked thought and a holy thought? The Bible is our answer. Learn how God thinks by finding his words; believe his words and reject and rebuke the enemy’s words.

MAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING

The marketing title of Dr. Frankl’s book was a good one because it helped the sales which in turn helped the distribution. Everybody that is anybody has seen or read that book. Do you remember it? Yes, of course. But what we hadn’t seen before was the anointed presentation pastor Bobby used last night — that for his disciples, those learning from his table, need to understand a certain consequence is involved. A burning in our heart.

“Jesus’ desire is to make moral and virtuous hearts.” Wrote Bobby Schuller in his newly published book Happiness According to Jesus. (Missing the Mark, page 61)

The point of the novel by Austria’s prominent psychaiatrist, through his experience, was to explain the very philosophy that got him through such horrendous circumstances. Reading between the lines, I could suddenly understand that he was (and we are) given the heart to accept all extreme circumstances: YES! Whatever comes.

PASTOR JOHN TELLS ABOUT EPIC PEOPLE

When Liberty Convocation was over, I turned to Church of His Presence for their Sunday service (a switch from TV to computer online). Because of the prophecy meeting Thursday night, I should have known — more prophecy teaching. (We believe these are the ‘last days’, so we can be ready for the being taken up — this is ‘comforting!’)

Introducing the guest speaker this morning, pastor John cites a word from Habakkuk, (3:17-19), that “Although all things go wrong, and seasons of leanness come, we learn to tap into God — have faith in our loving Father, no doubt that the blessings will come! Healings, favor, marriage, overwhelming shake-offs with praise.

God will always have ‘epic people’. Though they are out of sight, their prayer ministry in laymen positions, God will favor them. Christian TV will never quite be the same. (. . . pray for sister Witzel in Pensacola in a coma . . .)

Sowing into our prophetic attmosphere to open: ‘Receive the prophet in the name of a prophet, and receive the prophet’s reward.’ We should recognize our part in the anointed word to be shared.” (Matthew 10:41)

THE MESSAGE

Prophet Bill Salus, from the west coast, made his presentation referring to the January conference at the Mobile Convention Center. He began sharing his prophetic materials, Psalm 83; Isaiah, prophecies concerning the nations including Elam, and a novel about what happens to our families, all available in the foyer.” prophet Bill said.

THE GUARDIANS OF THE GRAIL

J.R. Church had figured out prophetically that there were, five society-associations that were keepers of secret power, that would control the coalition for Russia, Iran, and Turkey. (shown in the raptureready.com link)

“The sovereign world holdings of the U.K. once controled the fifth of the world’s population. At that time in 1926, well after WW1 ended in 1926, the Balfour Declaration was signed by his magesty King George V’s Foreign Affairs Officer, James Balfour. that formed the current elusive peace throughout all the middle east during all our American presidential administrations.

The prophetic message of Bill Salus followed the historic progress down over the past century to the present giving assurance that God is well aware — God is going to lift up Israel by his unconditional Covenant.

Joel 3:2 (AMP)  “I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for [their treatment of] My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and [because] they have divided My land.”

“There it is. End of time, Armageddon Warning, judgment coming! With remedial judgments. Because on 9-11 our hedge of protection came down which makes us vulnerable to massacre. Terrorism is on the rise — we are in serious trouble.” Bill said, and waved his arm to describe every possible senerio that’s coming, and soon: EMP.

“To the people of Israel, laws of love written on their hearts: Rapture or Goshen? Ready, new body: Word became flesh; we shall all be changed! Comfort one another into an hour of trial: Timeline . . . Prayer: Prepare us to prepare others. In Yeshua-Jesus wonderful name . . . Amen.”

CAN WE AGREE PHYSICALLY MENTALLY EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY

The initial point in writing all this was to communicate hope. The signs of the times we are living through are threatening signs: It has to get worse before it gets better. Do we have the heart to do this? I personally believe because I am hearing with an open heart. “This is the way, go in it.” (Don’t harden your heart . . .)

The LORD bless and keep you!

FUTURE FAITH – ‘Signs of the Times’ prophecy conference, my review part three – video

Katy Perry in her Egyptian goddess costume into occult witchcraft?

(L.A. Marzulli is presenting his second night lecture for ‘Signs . . .’ having prayed the blood of Yeshua-Jesus, and putting on the full armor of God.)

WARNING: THIS IS NOT CONSPIRACY THEORIES FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT — YOUR LIFE MATTERS!

“Who is the prince of the power of the air?” L.A. asked rhetorically.

“SATAN — The father of lies, deceptive in the most seductive and appealing style — extremely dangerous

“Ruler of this age, fallen cherub! This is not the Gospel message like we get in church, but this is soundly biblical.”

SIGN FACT:  “Witnessing UFO’s, 20% to 30% of our population encounter even a thousand sightings in a month. UFO’s have the ability to switch dimensions. They can channel in and out of the 2nd heaven (outer space). Protocol of the heavenly war is not found in the biblical narrative, because it is in Yeshua, Jesus is our Mediator. In Him we have safety, security, and protection.”

“Being freed from bondage is our miracle because of God’s grace and the work of Yeshua-Jesus. One event that changed everything: The Gospel that the world now can access because of the telecom satelites, we have one world system, but Yeshua said, ‘Even the elect will be deceived.’ (See Watchers7 Video of flying saucer.)

“What can we do when we see such awsome sightings? We need to say it like it is: not to be deceived, this is a work of the demonic, say, ‘The LORD rebuke you!’. My book, Further Evidence shows, ‘The Days of Jered (‘descent’)’ upon Mount Hermon. (Reference to abovetopsecret.com that explains extra-biblical, Sethite theory.)

DARK HORSE IS A DANGEROUSLY DECEPTIVE VIDEO PRODUCTION

“And Katy Perry’s video is documented as the work of evil-occultic witchcraft. Worshiping Egyptian god of Ishtar. We do need to be aware of this concept of glorification of ancient fertility godesses, if only to protect the hearts and minds of our young people. It is a real tactic of our archenemy. Learn about his objectives to kill, steal, and destroy. We can defeat him — with God’s help.

“Ezekiel 8: An unclean thing is in the Temple (the temple of the human heart) Put on the armor of God . . . And still our society is taught according to the Darwinian Paradigm. So the United States rejects UFO sightings. What if the fallen one has lost his ability to appear between dimensions . . . even because we claim it by faith?” L.A. said.

INTERDIMENSIONAL BEINGS

“Genesis 3:15, Seed of the serpent — cosmic war objective to bring in the antimessiah/antichirst. But a counter move in a cosmic chess game is the former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer, says that ‘UFO’s are as real as the aircraft we have identified in controlled airspace!’ Look at the evidence! Laws of physics are suspended.

RECORD OF ABDUCTIONS

Jump through space: Robert Salas and Captain Bradford Runion tell of 20-ton sylo door lifted in 1967. (report of dream-like sequense and description of abductors)

PROPHECY WATCHER – FALLEN ONE’S TECHNOLOGY

“Paul McGuire talked about his difficulty in combining technology with angels, but now he believes that is the case. We’re looking at a spiritual / technical manifestation of the phenomena. And, this is only one aspect of it. The good angels also seem to have similar equipment and far different reasoning. (Ezekiel 10, Matt 24).”

The purpose of seeking our human semen is to procreate their own non-human spieces — surgically not sexually. And if that is the case, our government cannot defend us from such enemies — and all human nations must unite against it. Bring on the one world order/government; United Nations defense systems, even secretly.

FUTURE PHYSICS

“There are biblical narratives that show and tell of rescues from prison. The apostle Peter (Kefa) was released miraculously by an angel, and it is plainly documented. That is open to us, but what is hidden is that fallen ones can manipulate the physical realm too. (We believe some things, but not others.)”

WE TRAVEL ON THIS STUFF

“The church needs to lead in this teaching. Bill’s abduction and implant story tells of prayer taking authority — it happened to me, as we did this, and it is something indefensible. Other examples of supernatural abductions: cow heart extraction, without surgery or open wound . . . a breeding program to create hybrid humanoids.” (quoting Bill here)

AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH

“Jewish authorities deny there are Jewish hybrid beings walking around among us. We can’t deny this! We are pushed to the change, and it has happened.’ Said Dr. David Jacobs. ‘I dispair!’ He said. Brings us to the replacement program of Genesis 3; Satan is trying to counter us. The last stand time is coming: The great falling away — Deception.” L.A. said.

SKULLS

“The examinations of the skulls shown were made by an outside Raman Spectroscopy outside (independent) agency. How is it possible to manipulate the human genome? The fallen ones want the human DNA to use their technology (genius) to manufacture hybrid humans — that are more like us — deceptively conforming.”


The Fox News network is making soft discloser that this is happening. ‘One is left, one is taken.’ Proof of alien hand print and the coming great deception — Malevalent Nephilim: The Fourth Kind is my explanation of the modern scriptural enemy incursion. What the enemy can do, God permit, he will do.”

DARWINISM

Interdimensional versus extraterrestrial are the choices. With a little evidence and guidance of the Holy Bible, the supernatural is easily deniable by darwinists. They are not spiritually perceptive, and as a result, they have no clue of the difference. New Ager’s report twisting half-truths, or channeled information? The church is blind.”

INTERDIMENSIONALISM

Ashtar Command, Brotherhood of Light; cleansing and realignment. Where does Yeshua-Jesus come? How does he come in reality, and cautiously, all this will be happening as we are fearfully and wonderfully made — we will ‘put on immortality’. Take a few minutes and review this. (I have never seen this before.)

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

Intelligent Design — all life on earth is created by aliens? Transthermia? (anti-bible) Reincarnated? The Vatican Father Funes and Erich Von D –– Darwinism is not proven, and cannot be proven, but DNA always works.” Primiras; Days of Noah — movie, Where do the first replicating molecules begin? Richard Dawkins, Stein.

“Jesus just says, ‘Be healed.’ and they are. Because we are God? Panspermia is a great deception (church is shown as a man with his head in the sand. Even talk about these things. The Coptic; UFO; Angel of Light seen as some angelic vision, mean believers are deceived — alien satanic seeded here; signs revealing nephilim in the days of Noah. Video — prayer (Liberty University service showing 4-year old).

HIWAY TO HELL

Robotic sarcophogus, Katy Perry tumble morphed alien head shown as shape of shifting entity. The singing, shape-shifting entity, showing eyes changing, graphic enhanced — it is all there: Genesis 6; Book of Enoch; sin; kaimira? Pray! War against this! Ezekiel 8 moment, children need  to understand the world we live in.

“Doctrine of Demons. Detroit is unveiling demonic prayer for medium J.Z. Knight, channeler for strategic divine intervention . . . depart from the faith . . .”

L.A. Murzulli ended the meeting with a sobering thought. “I believe our loving LORD is Lord of all. His presence is here with us, and he will bless and keep you, the LORD make his face to shine on you being gracious to you, and the LORD lift up his face to you and give you shalom-peace. Amen and amen.”

DEDICATION, DISCLAIMER

(Editor note: transcribing my notes from three nights of lectures, I have learned to obey the Lord’s lead to do it. If you think about this subject very much, you have to look away and thank the Father for a fresh breath of cool air, and seek renewel here. There are many questions here that remain. When linking the brief notes that I took with the internet, many of the answers were there. It is a big study, but well worth the time to find the answers.

I meant no offense or claim of authority by linking this material. It is all public domain, and I hold no rights to any of the judgments made personally. The persons shown in media or entertainment are their own agents for the good or bad publicity they have paid for. Nothing personal is made by this report. We call a spade, a spade.

Hense, the primary agency we have relied upon in observing and reporting this material is the Holy Spirit, Whom has confirmed the objective of his word of knowledge: to reveal in our hearts, the truth from darkness to light and help us see the error of our ways. I have seen the sin that so easily beset me, repented and received sanctified cleansing and the ability to stop willingly doing it. (Thank you Yeshua-Jesus!)  Amen.

The Lord showed me today that our Future Faith is like the parable of the Vinedresser, (John 15:1-6; vineyard, Isaiah 5:1): I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. (Romans 11:17) Anyway, this article, is an example of the fruit that I am given to bear for the Father and his Son in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Master gardener knows all the bad and evil in our unholy world. We can be assured he will prune and deweed for us.

Beautiful for situation (elevated holiness), the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Tziyon (Zion) in the far north (where the new Jerusalem actually is — beyond the north star), the city of the Great King. (But I wouldn’t swear by it, Matthew 5:35).

Adonai bless and keep you all,

FUTURE FAITH – Prophecy conference ‘Signs of the Times’ My review part two – video

Proverbs 18:13  (AMP) “He who answers a matter before he hears the facts—it is folly and shame to him.” Matthew 24:37 (AMP) “As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

(L.A. Murzulli was introduced and shared how he is going to try presenting his material very slowly — because there is so much and he has so much time — three hours should be sufficient. He said and his audience laughed. He has a nice smile under his mustache and his dark-blonde hair curling around his neck, bounces slightly as he chuckles. He looked like a college professor.)

“We are in a cosmic war, folks; and a great eviction notice is being served — even today! We are playing a cosmic chess game. Picture yourselves riding with Elyon (Most High). I am a biblical literalist. We can call Lucifer bad and worse: Fallen One! Do we really believe in this? The supernatural is real! And it is growing!”
So the Fallen One is kicked-out of the 3rd heaven. We are the fallen angel’s replacement (move for cosmic chess) And then the Darwinian paradigm rebellion is a counter move. This means our elected leaders are not able to tell us the truth in these matters.

Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring [Christ]; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.” (see also: Is. 9:6; Mt. 1:23; Lk. 1:31; Ro. 16:20; Gal. 4:4; Rev. 12:17)

THE EVIL ONE HAS THE TITLE DEED

Genesis 6 and the Book of Enoch tells us how the conference of fallen angels fell to Mount Hermon on border of Lebenan and Syria, north of Israel. This is the place where Yeshua the Messiah was transfigured. Check this out on Google Earth, it is on the 33rd parallel, and then go to the exact 180 degrees opposite side of the earth: is Roswell New Mexico.

Jude verse 6 confirms the Enoch account: “And angels who did not keep (care for, guard, and hold to) their own first place of power but abandoned their proper dwelling place—these He has reserved in custody in eternal chains (bonds) under the thick gloom of utter darkness until the judgment and doom of the great day.” [Verses 14,15, and 19] (AMP)

Job 2:1, 2 “Again there was a day when the sons of God [the angels] came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan (the adversary and the accuser) came also among them to present himself before the Lord.”

“Here is an example of the Angel of Light (Lucifer) a shape-shifter — we are told to test the spirits, a game theory;

“As in the day of Noah . . . The Nephilim are on the earth;

“Genesis 10:8 Cush (‘Darkness’) fathered Nimrod (‘Strong’). Sodom and Gamorah — only nephilim present, equals judgment!

“Seed of the Serpent versus the seed of Messiah. They are taking these events recorded as personal, and they want to pollute the human DNA. Kaimira (the half human and half non-human) is evidence, that resulted from excess demonic hormones. Also Darwinism-Satanic bible cuts knees off Christianity.

“Giants are called ‘sons of god’ (Hebrew, Nephilim). The fallen angels know where Jerusalem is going to be. From the 2nd heaven, fallen angels can see through time — our supernatural. Nephilim are in the promised land, until the sin of the Amorites.

“Events of the destruction of both Temples occurred on the same date; the 9th of Av. Antisemitism causes another chess move — Hitler’s cosmic death trap, and Israel suffered the Holocaust.

THE SECOND INCURSION

“Promised Land was infiltrated by the Rephayim (tribe of Nephilim), when Israel was serving Egypt. Og, their king, was 12-feet tall, Goliath was 9-feet tall. God told Joshua to take out all of the Promised Land peoples. Genecide by God’s will. All Nephilim are hybrid beings — they have no soul.” A.L. said.

“In 1313 BCE, reference my book, On the Trail of the Nephilim; seed-war theory: The soul-less ones have to be destroyed. An example of the Amorite sins is shown here. A natural woman died with child and was embalmed. The excavation and forensic examination revealed a 2000 year old fetus having a preserved elongated skull.

“This was in the Peruvian Andies called Chongas Metropolis and evidence how 3500 years ago, the Nephilim arrived from Canaan and began their human gene manipulation. It’s not hard to piece this puzzle together. Let me show you a Peruvian folk dance ceremony with a spooky stilt-walker.” L.A. said, and showed his video clip.

TODAYS EDUCATION REJECTS THESE DISCOVERIES

“Even though this evidence is legal according to archeological standards, our education system won’t consider teaching these facts because of the Darwinism Paradigm. Even entertainment, like movies, can only use the strange evidence in a science-fiction genre. I.e.; The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, showed illegal DNA test (outside agency that manipulates unknown private DNA. This is intellectual fascism.” L.A. said.

“It was Goliath’s relatives, shown with elongated skulls, not cradle-boarded, and featured ‘star-child’ that is a legal sample from Sagomon at 12,000 feet among the 3500 year-old dwellings that giants built. Fallen angel technology is about the ‘seed-war’. They want to be worshipped, the church is asleep! Why should we care?

GAY MARRIAGE IS THE RESULT OF DARWINIAN THEORY

“So also shall the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matthew 24:37) The fallen ones, soul-less hybrid beings, from the fourth century Sethite Theory. 2 2 Thesselonians 2:7-12 ; 3:1,2.

VIDEO OF KATY PERRY

Here Mr. Murzulli shows a video that is so sensual and alluring that he has to admit that the youth already have seen it, but we need to understand why it is and what to do about it. Protect our children from the worship of Ishtar. Madonna also. She does open Luciferic occult witchcraft. (Claim the blood of Yeshua-Jesus here!)

The church needs to see what Luciferic occult witchcraft is. The antimessiah is coming. Hitler was a fallen one. Spirit of Destiny occultists attach meaning to ‘Sons of the Nephilim’ spear head (that pierced Yeshua-Jesus)

TAKE AWAY

“Antichrist, seed of nephilim, same type of evidence is dark video. Kids are being inducted already! Mark of the beast is real! Sobering! The truth is that the enemy’s signs and wonders are lies.

PRAYER

“Word of knowledge, ‘Walk in boldness with power!” (In Yeshua-Jesus’ name, Amen)

(Next: ‘Signs of the Times’ Part 3)

FUTURE FAITH – ‘Signs of the Times’ prophecy conference, my review – videos, Part One

The image of reptillian spirit (alien) that exist interdimensionally from the second heaven (source A.L. Marzulli)

 

(Perry Stone Ministries, Voice of Evangelism/OCI, from website, voe.org)

“Welcome to the Signs of the Times Prophecy Conference! Relax this is a free worship zone (No Satan Zone)!” Pastor John said as he introduced our speaker: Evangelist, author, teacher Perry Stone. “As Noah progressively built the ark from 100 years, and then down to the final 7-days, the accelleration factor was in effect. We find this in our last days — it is starting to pull together the remnant — it is not all negative.” Perry said. “Don’t judge grass-roots America by the current events.” He said.

“We can download Matthew 24:14 as our investment: ‘And the gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world, . . . and then shall the end come.'” He said.

A CASE FOR THREE HEAVENS

Genesis 1:1 (AMP) 1 “In the beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth.” The plural for of the noun heaven is shown to indicate there is more than one.

Let’s consider three: 2 Corinthians 12:2 (AMP),  “I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows—was caught up to the third heaven.”

THE THIRD HEAVEN IS WHERE GOD LIVES

Perry Stones’s presentation was to bring us a word of knowledge about our enemy, Satan, the Serpent, but had to do it by biblical narrative most interestingly. Here is a link to a short 10-minute video on the topic that links other related videos and cites other important  biblical references: http://youtu.be/y7vXspEmPWQ.

LEVIATHAN IS THE NAME OF THE LEAD, FOUL, WICKED SPIRIT-PRINCIPALITY

Isaiah 27:1 (AMP), “In that day [the Lord will deliver Israel from her enemies and also from the rebel powers of evil and darkness] His sharp and unrelenting, great, and strong sword will visit and punish Leviathan the swiftly fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting and winding serpent; and He will slay the monster that is in the sea.”

TEACHING ABOUT THE GIANTS FROM FALLEN ANGELS IN THE SECOND HEAVEN

Here is another prominent video clip that lays out the detail of fallen angels and demonic spirits. This teaching brings up the mention of seven serpents in the book of Revelation 12: 3-4 (AMP),

3 Then another ominous sign (wonder) was seen in [the secondheaven: Behold, a huge, fiery-red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven kingly crowns (diadems) upon his heads.

4 His tail swept [across the sky] and dragged down a third of the stars and flung them to the earth. And the dragon stationed himself in front of the woman who was about to be delivered, so that he might devour her child as soon as she brought it forth.

“The Greek word for dragon here is drakon that is also defined as ‘serpent‘ as direct reference to Satan. A serpent with seven heads. . . each head represents an empire. And each empire was given a spirit-principality. And they are not yet bound”

SEVEN EMPIRES AND THEIR SATANIC SPIRIT-RULERS

“Called the ‘Seed war’, Satan tried and failed to destroy the coming of Messiah. Yeshua destroyed Satan’s plan by dying on the cross. This is something only the Father could do — our enemy was out-smarted — but for a price.” Perry said.

Genesis 3:15 (NKJV)  “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” (God said to Satan.)

Revelation 17:10-13 (AMP), “And they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one still exists [and is reigning]; the other [the seventh] has not yet appeared, and when he does arrive, he must stay [but] a brief time.

11 And as for the beast that [once] was, but now is no more, he [himself] is an eighth ruler (king, head), but he is of the seven and belongs to them, and he goes to perdition.

12 Also the ten horns that you observed are ten rulers (kings) who have as yet received no royal dominion, but together they are to receive power and authority as rulers for a single hour, along with the beast.

13 These have one common policy (opinion, purpose), and they deliver their power and authority to the beast.

“Six world empires still had six spirit-principalities that; although the empires failed, the principalities and powers are not yet bound.” Perry said.

THE SIX SPIRIT PRINCIPALITIES

“These are the principalities — 1) Egypt had the spirit of bondage; 2) Assyria split Israel, that’s the spirit of division, divorce, and church splits. 3) Babylonia, the spirit of compromise.” He said and cited that in the sixties caused prayer to be taken out of school — that people can no longer confess the name of Jesus in public.”

“4) Medes and Persians, the spirit of making laws: “No where in history has a nation ever abolished marriage: heterophobic — Who’s going to be Ester?” Perry said. 5) Greece, the spirit of false gods, humanism, false teaching in school. and, 6) Rome, the spirit of tolerance, accept any god, except when Yeshua Jesus came.

THE SEVENTH EMPIRE

“The seventh empire is the beast of Revelations 13:1,2,  “And the Dragon stood on the shore of the sea. I saw a Beast rising from the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads—on each horn a crown, and each head inscribed with a blasphemous name. The Beast I saw looked like a leopard with bear paws and a lion’s mouth. The Dragon turned over its power to it, its throne and great authority.” (MSG)

“The beast is Satan (‘Blaspheme’) Daniel 7, the lion is Babylon, bear is Medes & Persia, Alexander (Greece) is leopard: one animal but different parts means the image of compromised laws — get the law to turn (Gay marriage to Christian marriage?) The wise must stand up! Daniel 9 shows new king made by God.

“Daniel 9 and 10, How God changed the king because he was defiling the holy implements of the Temple, so that God’s hand was seen writing the message of doom on the wall, so death was of service. Then the new king Syrus could listen to Daniel, and authorize all Jewish families to return to Israel. Where the Devil got Samaritans to battle resisting the rebuilding of Jerusalem.

“Also Daniel 11, Darius the Mede demon spirit battle with angel Gabriel resisted the Persian prince, needed the help of Michael. Daniel 12, the battle of the angels brought revelation to keep prince of Persia’s principalities and powers — 200 years, one angel was there to make sure no demon would interfere with Israel.”

PRAYER IS WHAT WILL MOVE THE SPIRIT REALM

“Key, to the transition, God’s people did what God needed, PRAY! No more freedom of speech. People feel they have no voice to change anything. You can’t get offended if you’re in Jesus! WHA-HOO!” Perry said.

“Point: When a man of God prayed, he did not have to battle — when one man prayed, angels took notice. If God’s people will cry out to God. God will send angels (Daniel 10). ‘If two or three will . . . what you bind on earth . . . Constantine, one man, changed power in a kingdom.

“If my people shall turn from sin and their wickedness — clean up sins of the spirit, not seen; then God who hears and forgives and heals . . . Pat Boone and George Otis visited Governor Reagan for prayer. Otis put his hand on Reagan, saying, ‘I am pleased with you, and if you walk with me and humble yourself, you will reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.'” Perry said.

“Gorbechav heard prophecy to let Jews go home. Bill Clinton, when voted out as governor, pastor prophecied a Jewish girl named Lewinski . . . God raised up and took down. The devil can’t hate you more than God can love you!” When in the spirit of bondage, there are people bound here. Start somewhere, repent, forgive 7X7.”

“We teach two things: 1. Humility, and 2. A heart willing to say you know you need and want help. One of these days, the power hits. Hopelessness spirit — bondage delivered! (Congregation prayed for ten to 15 minutes.)

SUMMARY

I have already taken too much of our time with this, but feel that if you missed this event, you might just try to get to gleen from the vast harvest of knowledge given out by Evangelist, pastor, author, Perry Stone. We learned certain signs were evident, but the focus of certain spiritual definitions had to be shown. This information is not for everyone. And there were so many attending the event that parking was closed. This review may help.

But the ground-work for the future conference was laid. Bible narrative is so critical. Anyone can say anything about any of this topic, and it will seem like the following nights, that a crack-pot, science fiction, extremist would build upon this background. (I felt like that only because I never heard of L.A. Marzulli before.) But hearing this one expert professor-equivilent tell of his research was eye-opening. It is imparitive that I share with you what he shared.

NEXT: HOW ANCIENT ALIENS INVADE US, PART TWO

FUTURE FAITH – Healing dysfunctional children of God

Today begins the first day of the week that we call a day of rest. When watering the new trees of our acre garden, I heard a word. ‘When you planted your trees, you didn’t know how they would grow into full-size, you could only guess how to position them. Every tree has its own DNA which is the individual print of its designed growth.’

Interesting thoughts like this make me think of even the ‘building a tree-house in your heart’ article (March 23) where I used one of my favorite parables of Yeshua to describe using his method for doing such a thing. Oh, it was not very highly thought of — my article, that is. But Yeshua’s parable is renowned. So I reviewed it in my mind . . .

‘The ground provided by the Royal Gardener, the vine planted in the ground, the branches of the vine, and the fruit produced by the branches in the form of beautiful seed-bearing flowers and leaves. So we can accept that the big picture is what we don’t see (2 Corinthians 4:18). The force that provided all of the elements we can see, was designed into the minute DNA of a seed.’

THE TREE DNA HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PRUNING

 People trees, by Pooktre
(wikipedia)

“Tree shaping is the practice of changing living trees and other woody plants into man made shapes for art and useful structures. There are a few different methods [122] of shaping a tree. There is a gradual method and there is an instant method, the gradual method slowly guides the growing tip along predetermined path ways over time where as the instant method bends and weaves saplings 2 to 3 m (6.6 to 9.8 ft) long into a shape that becomes more rigid as they thicken up.[123] Most artists use grafting of living trunks, branches, and roots, for art or functional structures and there are plans to grow “living houses” with the branches of trees knitting together to give a solid, weatherproof exterior combined with an interior application of straw and clay to provide a stucco-like inner surface. Tree shaping has been practised for at least several hundred years, the oldest known examples being the living root bridges built and maintained by the Khasi people of Meghalaya, India using the roots of the rubber tree (Ficus elastica)”

We are talking about this seed planted in the human heart. And it is done by the Royal Gardener. So, all things being equal like the original seed DNA, and the soil of the heart being good ground — not hard, or stony, or thorny — then the only thing needed is pruning over the life of the tree. But, all things are not equal, are they.

THIS CONCEPT CAN WORK FOR THE BIGGEST PICTURE

The tree we can plant here, in our heart, is that with the DNA of three branches off the trunk of Noah. His children, Ham, Shem, and Japheth grew into branches, that each grew, four, five, and seven more branches respectively. So the families of the whole world have to be found on this sixteen branch tree. Can we imagine what the DNA looked like?

This T and O map, from the first printed version of Isidoor’s Etymologiae, identifies the three known continents as populated by descendants of Sem (Shem), Iafeth (Japheth) and Cham (Ham).

[Wikipedia: Latin: “The ends of The Great Inland Sea Continents; (East) Asia, Shem; (North) Europa, Yafeth; (South) Africa, Cham.”] Printed in 1472, Guntherus Zainer, British Library, 1st printing.

THE BIBLE HAS MORE CLUES ABOUT THE FIRST FAMILY (OF NOAH)

This is not taught in our schools today, but in this simple diagram, we can see the whole DNA of world populations, and we can study this and remember it. We came from such simple beginnings. Each branch has a name and a location. I have ordered this with the fewest branches first: Four branches of Ham are:

Genesis 10:6, (CJB) The sons of Ham were Kush, Mitzrayim, Put and Kena‘an. (The youngest branches)

Genesis 10:22 (CJB) The sons of Shem were ‘Elam, Ashur, Arpakhshad, Lud and Aram. (The oldest branches)

Genesis 10:2 (CJB) The sons of Yefet were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Yavan, Tuval, Meshekh and Tiras.

Now we have the grandchildren of Noach (Noah) that started the world populating with their children. And without much further study, we can locate them having moved from the central location of Babylon, but remember the ground in humanity was Noach (rest), who found favor with God.

THE RECORD OF THE FIRST FAMILY ON THE EARTH

Bible map showing location of Noah’s grandchildren

MY SIMPLE DRAWING OF THE FAMILY TREE HELPS TO SHOW THIS

The first family from which all children of God came

 

SEARCH FOR CLUES OF POSSIBLE EARLY FAMILY DYSFUNCTION 
My inquiring mind likes to consider the meaning of these names: Noah, rest; Shem, name (renown); Japheth, wide spreading; and Ham, hot.  Shem’s son’s: Aram, high, exalted; Lud, or Luz, turn, twist (also linked to Ham’s son Mitzrayim); Asshur, a step; Elam, hidden; Arpakshad, nurturing; Gomer, completion; Magog, region of Gog (mountain); Madai, middle; Tuval, to bring, carry, lead, conduct; Yavan, mud-man; Meshekh, tall, Tiras, desire; Kush, full of darkness; Mitzrayim, Egypt; Kena’an, low; and Put, foreign archers.

Names have personal influence. Imagine Low looking up to High, or High looking down on Low? Can we pick up any dysfunctional clues here? Also, how Middle meets Mudman and they find Hidden and make friends with Full of darkness. From Rest came Name, Widespreading, and Hot; So can we get by this, and look for the bad DNA genes? (The enemy DNA was in the wife of one son; but which one? Name, Widespreading, or Hot . . . we can guess.)

THE COMMON (INFORMATION) DENOMINATOR

My study of one of the best resources I have, has informed me that my recent reply to an honest question of, ‘What did I think of the Jewish Bible changing all the time?’ This was in reply to my more recent post about the prophecy message concerning the destruction of Elam (Hidden), modern-day Iran. So I glibly explained the Oral Torah, Talmud, and that the gifts of prophecy today are limited to Messianic Rabbis — “That the Jews have no clue.” I said.  Ignorance is a common characteristic of most every family.

Ouch! That was a most inappropriate response, especially since my own conscience was alerted. I had no idea what I was saying. I got no ‘like’ for that. In fact, I was awarded Religious Retard status on Twitter. (That hurt). So I began to go back into the annals of Jewish homiletics. I found “where there are two Jews, there are three opinions” helpful. I have so much to learn about my ancestor’s community.

THE TANAKH IS STILL A LIVING DOCUMENT

The Jewish Old Covenant is still a living document. Interpreting it, called midrash, is proof — like facebook with God among the Jewish communities. There are two approaches to Jewish biblical interpretation: Derash (Homiletical), or the Peshat (Contextual). This dual-view of Scriptural interpretation has deep roots in classical midrash. (The really gloriouslly productive period of distant past.)

THE DERASH APPROACH

The Yalkut Shimoni states, that if two verses seem to say the same thing, there must be some difference. God never wastes words.

Psalms 62:12 (CJB), 11 “God has spoken once, I have heard it twice; strength belongs to God.” Same verse in the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB), 11 “Once God has spoken, twice have I heard this: strength belongs to God,” (numbering of Jewish chapter and verse is different comparing Christian texts.) The point? Not everyone understands this.

Jeremiah 23:29 (NJB) “Is my word not like fire, Yahweh demands, is it not like a hammer shattering a rock?” (“Isn’t my word like fire,” asks Adonai, “like a hammer shattering rocks?” [CJB]) “Is not my word like fire [that consumes  all that cannot endure the test]? says the Lord, and like a hammer  that breaks in pieces  the rock [of most stubborn resistance]?” (AMP)

Jeremiah had been speaking of prophetic revelation, which he likened to the blow of a hammer. The rabbis transfer the verse’s contextual reference from the experience of revelation, to the substance of revelation.” Says Professor Ed Greenstein, Associate Professor of Bible, at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.

“The multiplicity of the Bible’s signification not only inheres in the nature of the text but also results from divergent methods or dimensions of reading it.”

“The techniques of midrashic interpretation were adapted from ancient procedures of dream interpretation. Sacred texts, like dreams, are symbolic. Their meaning stems not only from their gist but also from peculiarities of their style, vocabulary, and spelling as well. In order to draw out the full richness of the Bible, each element of the text must be ‘Juiced’ for significance by very close analysis.”

THE PESHAT APPROACH

“After the rise of Islam in the seventh century, another mode of interpreting Scripture emerged and for several centuries overshadowed derash in biblical exegesis.  This  approach, that of peshat, sought to understand the biblical text within the parameters  of its historical, literary, and linguistic context.

Historical context must require that interpretation must read the text in terms of ancient Israel and the biblical story as a whole . . . Most secondary literature on Jewish exegesis defines peshat as the “simple,” “plain,” or “literal”  approach, but these terms are misleading. The historical meaning of the biblical text  may actually be complex and figurative, neither simple or straightforward.”

THE SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO LANGUAGE

“A second prerequisite to the peshat method  is a scientific approach to language. Jews in Arab lands had the  potential to become comparative Semitic linguists. A learned Jew would know his native Arabic,  biblical Hebrew,, the Hebrew of the rabbinic literature, and Aramaic, four semantic languages . . . In addition,

Arab grammarians had developed a systematic method for analyzing the style and structure of classic Arabic, the language of the Koran. This enabled them not only to interpret the Koran, but also to compose new works in the strict standards of the classical idiom.”  (taken from Back to the Sources,  Chapter Four, Medieval Bible Commentaries, Simon and Schuster,  page 215-222, 1984, used with permission.)

These quotes describe the classically educated leaders of the Israeli and Arabic faiths at the historic window of  the Dark Ages. The Medieval era was not without inspiration for classic Jewish source creation. I did not mention  the rabbinical examples, because they only reflected the points made by this scholarly author.

Where this article needs to conclude is by summary and future-faith prayer. How can the children of God  be  assimilated into a common race and heritage, for the purpose of reclaiming lasting peace for our human community? Are we willing to learn the truth, and pray for the peace for Jerusalem, and ask for help?

THEN SOLVE FOR PEACE BY ENTERING INTO REST (NOACH)

The DNA of our family tree has not changed.  It has some bad genes, but the good news is that God has made some provisions to cover them. When the fullness of time comes to pass, and the day of judgment is at hand, push comes to shove . . . if you hear God’s voice, like Noach did, then you can enter into His rest, but  that requires preparation of your heart — just like the soil of your garden needs softening, soften your heart . . .

Messianic Jews (Hebrews)  4:1-11, (CJB) “Therefore, let us be terrified of the possibility that, even though the promise of entering his rest remains, any one of you might be judged to have fallen short of it; 2 for Good News has also been proclaimed to us, just as it was to them. But the message they heard didn’t do them any good, because those who heard it did not combine it with trust. 3 For it is we who have trusted who enter the rest.

“It is just as he said,

And in my anger, I swore

that they would not enter my rest.”[Psalm 95:11]

“He swore this even though his works have been in existence since the founding of the universe. 4 For there is a place where it is said, concerning the seventh day

And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.”[Genesis 2:2]

5 “And once more, our present text says,

They will not enter my rest.”[Psalm 95:11]

6 “Therefore, since it still remains for some to enter it, and those who received the Good News earlier did not enter, 7 he again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying through David, so long afterwards, in the text already given

Today, if you hear God’s voice, don’t harden your hearts.”[Psalm 95:7,8]

8 “For if Y’hoshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later of another “day.”

9 “So there remains a Shabbat-keeping for God’s people. 10 For the one who has entered God’s rest has also rested from his own works, as God did from his. 11 Therefore, let us do our best to enter that rest; so that no  one will fall short because of the same kind of disobedience.”

Our families can be healed, if we all agree to learn the truth, pray for help, enter into rest, and obey his word.

Frank and I wish you all the very best,

FUTURE FAITH – Prophecy about the biblical Elam (Iran’s destruction) – Video

 Pastor John Kilpatrick showed ancient Elam as red that includes Susa as capital (Wikipedia)

Typographical view of region showing difference of ancient map

 

This map shows the today view of Khuzestan Province in Iran

Just last night, I watched the prophetic teaching of Pastor John Kilpatrick delivered on August 24, 2014, published almost a year ago. I can’t figure out how youtube.com featured it for me. Pastor John used the top map to show the location of the ancient province, the next shows change of 4 millenia. The oldest nuclear plant on the central coast is located at Bushehr. (South of Susa, seen as a seaport shown below)

The Bible mentions this Iranian region and tells of its demise.

“DOES THIS COMFORT YOU TO LEARN HERE WHAT THE NEWS MEDIA CAN’T TELL YOU?” Pastor said.

(I am able to share the outline of his message showing the bible passages. The details are fascinating, even today! To watch the short 38 minute video, (click here) to see the following texts on the viewing-screen presentation. I want to include more current maps to show the accuracy of how the Bible is refering to location of ancient Elam where the powerplant is and not in Khuzestan, as the Amplified Bible footnote says prophecy has already occurred. I asked the Lord about this. I heard that, ‘a biblical scholar’s calling can differ in prophetic focus.‘)

PROPHECY CONTEXTUALIZED

Genesis 12:1-3 (CJB) Now Adonai said to Avram, “Get yourself out of your country, away from your kinsmen and away from your father’s house, and go to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make of you a great nation, I will bless you, and I will make your name great; and you are to be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

When God told Abram (Hebrew, Avram, father of height), Get out of Ur, (Iraq) of the Chaldees, and take his family with him, to the place to be shown him, the context is the reason why, verse 1, you can’t be blessed here — leave here and follow my lead obediently, and I will give you . . . a great name, a great nation, and I will bless you for all families of the earth, BUT my blessing you means this: they who bless you, I will bless, and those who curse (revile) you, I will curse (bind under a curse, NASB).

PROPHECY PRETEXT

Isaiah 46: 9,10 (AMP), “[Earnestly] remember the former things, [which I did] of old; for I am God, and there is no one else; I am God, and there is none like Me, 10 declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose,”

 “I declare, says the Lord, the end from the beginning. My counsel shall stand.”

“If you hear this and you realize you have a problem with Jews and Jewish property, you need to get this hatred or prejudice out of your soul — heart, mind and spirit.” Pastor said.

He mentioned here some present-day prophets to whom God is giving this revelation — insight in things we need to hear. (Bill Salus, David Reagan, etc.)

“Elam (Hebrew, ‘eylam, hidden, distant). The part of Iran where nations are being maneuvered — leaders will wring their hands over.” Elam is ancient Persia (2100 – 2000 BCE) that predates Abram (1967 BCE). (Ezekiel, 622 BCE, prophesied from 594 to 573 BCE in Babylon during captivity. And was preceded Jeremiah, 650 BCE, prophesying from 628-586, and who was a prophet in Elam in 599 BCE, [see Jeremiah 25:15,25]).

HISTORY OF ELAM (IRAN)

Genesis 10:22; 14:1,9 (CJB) “The sons of Shem were ‘Elam, Ashur, Arpakhshad, Lud and Aram. [2318 BCE]14 . . . When Amrafel was king of Shin‘ar, Aryokh king of Elasar, K’dorla‘omer king of ‘Elam and Tid‘al king of Goyim [1967 BCE]; 9 against K’dorla‘omer king of ‘Elam, Tid‘al king of Goyim, Amrafel king of Admah and Aryokh king of Elasar, four kings against the five.” [1891 BCE] (dates taken from The Reese Chronological Bible, Bethany House, 1994)
“Ezekiel 38 and 39 tells how Elam and Persia were joined, (while Ezekiel deals with Persia); each tell future of both lands.”

THE TEXTS

Ezekiel 32:24,25 (AMP), “Elam [an auxiliary of Assyria] is there and all her multitude round about her grave, all of them slain, fallen by the sword, who have gone down uncircumcised into the netherworld, who caused their terror to spread in the land of the living and have borne their shame with those who go down to the pit.

25 They have set her a bed (a sepulcher) among the slain with all her multitude—their graves round about her, all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword, for their terror had spread in the land of the living, and they henceforth bear their shame with those who go down to the pit; they are laid in the midst of the slain.”

[‘Terror’. The Bush ‘Axis of evil‘ was North Korea, Iran, and one more, Iraq.]

Jeremiah 49:34,35, “I will break the bow of Elam.” Is a curse against Elam stated in Jerusalem.

34 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning and against Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, 35 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief [weapon and part] of their strength. (AMP)

Verse 39 is key: “I will,” statements are in four preceding verses. “Bow in Hebrew describes military weapon, but says nothing about arrows: This shows the destruction of the nuclear power plant of Elam that threatens the world. Jeremiah suggests Iran is disabling their missiles. “I will — send the four winds to scatter them (Iran).”

PASTOR SAID HOW BIBLICAL PROPHECY HERE IS STILL TELLING US IRAN’S POWERPLANT IS DOOMED

36 And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four corners of heaven; and I will scatter them toward all those winds, and there will be no nation to which the outcasts of Elam will not come.

37 And I will cause [*] Elam to be dismayed and terrified before their enemies and before those who seek and demand their lives; and I will bring evil and disaster upon them, even My fierce anger, says the Lord. And I will send the sword after them until I have consumed them.

38 And I will set My throne [of judgment] in Elam [whose capital city was Shushan, from which God wrought wonders through Nehemiah, Esther, and Daniel]; and I will destroy from their king and princes, says the Lord.

39 But it shall be [*] in the latter days (the end of days) that I will reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Elam, says the Lord. (AMP)

FOOTNOTE DETAIL SHOWN NOT APPLICABLE ACCORDING TO CONTEXT AND PRETEXT

[*] Jeremiah 49:39 Elam was a region beyond the Tigris River. After a long period of subjugation to foreign powers, it joined with Media and ultimately captured Babylon (Isa. 21:2, 9). Elam became a province of the Persian Empire. Elamites had been settled as colonists in Samaria long before the return of the Jews from Babylon, and they joined with others in attempting to prevent the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the temple (Ezra 4:9). There were also Elamites present on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:9), but they became extinct in the eleventh century. Elam in modern times is a province of modern Iran, bearing the name Khuzistan Province of Iran. Thus this prophecy of that nation’s destruction is long since fulfilled, with the restoration of Elam’s fortunes predicted in Jer. 49:39, the fulfillment of which we anticipate and await. (footnote [a] Dr. Frances Siewert)

Showing Bushehr as far away from Khuzestan (John McTernan)

Showing how AMP footnote is not applicable (Wikipedia)

Zechariah 2:6,7:  6 Ho! ho! [Hear and] flee from the land of the north, says the Lord, and from the four winds of the heavens, for to them have I scattered you, says the Lord. 7 Ho! Escape to Zion, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon! (AMP)

Zechariah 2:10,11 (AMP) 10 Sing and rejoice, O Daughter of Zion; for behold, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the Lord. 11 And many nations shall join themselves to the Lord in that day and shall be My people. And I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know (recognize and understand) that the Lord of hosts has sent me [His messenger] to you.

“Spred you to four corners of the earth.”

“At the turn of the century, 2000, there were 500 Islamic Christians.” Pastor John said. “When God scatters the Muslims from their Sharia law dominated countries, they will be saved through the free transmitting of the Gospel on TBN channels. They are now interviewing Islamic Christians who received visions of Yeshua, Jesus, and become believers as a result.”

“GOD HAS HIS FUTURE PLANS BEGINNING TO HAPPEN EVEN TODAY – AND NEWS MEDIA CANNOT TELL THIS!”

Pastor John concluded the 38 minute message at the stroke of noon, and encouraged everyone to share the news from God’s word. We can trust our Sovereign God to keep his prophetic promise to his children. Yes!

(If there are any who have read this and don’t have the assurance of being God’s child, then let’s pray. . . just call on the name of the Lord (Adonai) Jesus (Yeshua) Christ (Messiah), and you will be delivered (saved). Romans 10:13. And pray the prayer with the pastor at the end of the video linked above.

The Lord bless and keep you,

FUTURE FAITH – Cyber Secure Theology – Video

 

‘Kismet’ the robot with rudimentary social skills in MIT Museum, Wikipedia

Information Security Attributes: or qualities, i.e., Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA). Information Systems are composed in three main portions, hardware, software and communications with the purpose to help identify and apply information security industry standards, as mechanisms of protection and prevention, at three levels or layers: physical, personal and organizational. Essentially, procedures or policies are implemented to tell people (administrators, users and operators) how to use products to ensure information security within the organizations. (Wikipedia)(Hear his voice here:  MIT Video Youtube)

I was watching EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network) the other day about the pope’s visit to his home country, and then there was an interview with the author of the book, Cyber Theology. This sparked me to think about my social media posts, and how my Agent of Hope award is coming along. So I looked into cyber theology. (Subtitle: Thinking Christianity in the Era of the Internet.)

PROBLEM:  DATA TRANSMITTALS IN CYBERSPACE ARE DIFFICULT TO SECURE

Some selected reading about internet and cyber technology has revealed why this is so. Read the following: Age of Spiritual machines by Ray Kurzweil; Breakpoint by Richard Clarke; Our Posthuman Future by Francis Fukuyama; and The Intelligent Universe  by James Gardner. (please google them if not linked)

CASE IN POINT – ‘Spreading the fragrance of Christ’ to cross-cultural missions.

Cybermissions and general missions are alienated. High-tech and high-touch are being pushed apart by a deep theological and missiological misunderstanding of the nature of technology in spreading the fragrance of Christ.
Cybermissions is the application of digital ministry techniques to cross-cultural missions. Either alone or in partnership and synergy with conventional missions approaches.” (cybermissions.org, John Edmiston)

THE BIBLE DESCRIBES GOD’S SEAL CAN BE USED IN PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL SECURITY

I looked into my Dictionary of Bible Words for Professor Richards to show some etymological background. The Hebrew word for seal is chowthem (hotam), the stamp or signet, while chatham (hatam), is the use of it.  Dr. Richards gives two examples: Isaiah 8:16; and Daniel 12:9 showing important documents: “Wrap up this document, and (seal) confine its teachings to those I have instructed.” (CJB) . . . “But (the angel) said, ‘Go your way Dani’el; for these words are to remain secret and sealed until the time of the end.'” (CJB)

The main points being ownership, authority, authenticity, and security. The New Testament (Covenant) has similar words in Greek; sphragizo, to stamp for security, keep secret; and sphragis, is the stamp showing authenticity, with distinctive marking of ownership.

USED LITERALLY TO:

Guarantee business deals — Jeremiah 32:11-14 11 (NASB) Then I took the deeds of purchase, both the sealed copy containing the terms and conditions and the open copy; 12 and I gave the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the sight of Hanamel my uncle’s son and in the sight of the witnesses who signed the deed of purchase, before all the Jews who were sitting in the court of the guard. 13 And I commanded Baruch in their presence, saying, 14 ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time (many days).”

Ratify documents — Nehamiah 10:1 10 (9:38) “‘In view of all this, we are making a binding covenant, putting it in writing and having it sealed by our leaders, our L’vi’im and our cohanim.’” (CJB)

Insure a prophecy — Daniel 9:24 24 “Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and for your holy city for putting an end to the transgression, for making an end of sin, for forgiving iniquity, for bringing in everlasting justice, for setting the seal on vision and prophet, and for anointing the Especially Holy Place. (CJB)

Protect books — Revelation 5:2,5,9 (CJB) 2 and I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?”. . . 5 One of the elders said to me, “Don’t cry. Look, the Lion of the tribe of Y’hudah, the Root of David, has won the right to open the scroll and its seven seals.” . . . 9 and they sang a new song, “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals; because you were slaughtered; at the cost of blood you ransomed for God persons from every tribe, language, people and nation.

Lock doors — Matthew 27:66 (CJB)  66 So they went and made the grave secure by sealing the stone and putting the guard on watch.

Authenticate a will — John (Yochanan) 6:27b “For this is the one on whom God the Father has put his seal.” (CJB)

Demonstrate a binding trust — Romans 4:11, “In fact he, (Abraham) received circumcision as a sign, as a seal of the righteousness, he had been credited with on the ground of the trust (faith believing) he had while uncircumcised.  This happened so that he could be the father of every uncircumcised person who trusts and thus has the righteousness credited to him.”  (CJB)

Confirm a calling – 2 Corinthians 1:21,22 “Moreover it is God who sets both us and you in firm union with the Messiah (the Christ); he has anointed us, put his seal on us, and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee for the future.”  (CJB)

USED FIGURATIVELY:

God’s ownership of  his people — Revelation 7:3-8 (CJB)  3 “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads!” 4 I heard how many were sealed — 144,000 from every tribe of the people of Isra’el: 5 From the tribe of Y’hudah 12,000 were sealed from the tribe of Re’uven 12,000 from the tribe of Gad, 12,000 6 from the tribe of Asher 12,000 from the tribe of Naftali 12,000 from the tribe of M’nasheh 12,000 7 from the tribe of Shim‘on 12,000 from the tribe of Levi 12,000 from the tribe of Yissakhar 12,000 8 from the tribe of Z’vulun 12,000 from the tribe of Yosef 12,000 from the tribe of Binyamin 12,000.”

God’s witness to Christ (Messiah) — John 6:27 (CJB) 27 Don’t work for the food which passes away but for the food that stays on into eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For this is the one on whom God the Father has put his seal.”

Believer’s security — 2 Corinthians 1:21,22; 2 Timothy 2:19 (CJB)  21 Moreover, it is God who sets both us and you in firm union with the Messiah; he has anointed us, 22 put his seal on us, and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee for the future. . . . Nevertheless, God’s firm foundation stands stamped with these words: “The Lord knows his own,” and, “Let everyone who claims he belongs to the Lord stand apart from  wrongdoing.”  (Numbers16:5; Nahum 1:7; Numbers 16:26)

Assurrance — Ephesians 1:13; 4:30 (CJB) 13 Furthermore, you who heard the message of the truth, the Good News offering you deliverance, and put your trust in the Messiah were sealed by him with the promised Ruach HaKodesh, who guarantees  our inheritance until we come into possesssion of it and thus bring him praise commensurate with his glory. . . . 30 Don’t cause grief to God’s Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit), for he has stamped you as his property until the day of final redemption.

Ownership of married love — Song of Solomon 4:12; 8:6 12 “My sister, my bride, is a garden locked up, a pool covered over, a spring sealed shut. Set me like a seal on your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, passion as cruel as Sh’ol; its flashes are flashes of fire, [as fierce as the] flame of Yah.” (CJB)

OBJECTIVE: APPLY GOD’S SECURITY SEAL TO YOUR CYBERSPACE PARTICIPATION

The teaching of our Deliverer tells us ‘With God all things are possible‘. And this is what he has shown me how to operate my twitter page. Don’t be in a hurry to gain followers. If their profile does not openly confess God, as Elohim, or Adonai, and Jesus the Christ or Yeshua the Messiah, and some personal association with a Messianic Assembly or Christian Church, then that disqualifies their character as an eligible follower, so they are blocked.

“Matthew 10:31-33 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT) 31 So do not be fearing. You are more valuable than many sparrows. (Jesus Instructs Them About His Mission: ‘I Came To Divide The World Over Myself!’) 32 “Everyone therefore who will confess Me in front of people, I also will confess him in front of My Father in the heavens. 33 But whoever denies Me in front of people, I also will deny him in front of My Father in the heavens.”

ARE YOU SEALED AND USING GOD’S SEAL?

The same policy is applicable to facebook. If a profile has no open confession of Jewish or Christian faith, then the secular or humanist philosophy prevails. The Bible describes if we cannot openly confess Jesus as Lord (Yeshua as Adonai), then we are not members of, or belong to, the Kingdom of Heaven. The point? Enemy access.

Evil exists in the world and the internet cannot be so isolated, but your heart can be. The Christian/Messianic (especially biblical) solution is able to overcome anything evil. Because evil is classified antichrist. There is no middle or neutral ground. This is the ground of basic theology. Human nature is called wicked and evil. Why? Because of the Gospel. The Bible tells us how God paid for our fallen human nature. Learn the Bible.

Here is a clue to true security. God’s provision enables everything we need for deliverance from evil. His acceptance of our repentance, (changed mind) and faith in (acceptance of) him and his word, grants us entry into his kingdom where gifts of favor and protection reside — within holiness — where evil cannot and refuses to exist.

Of course such a concept has to be received by faith. Such faith becomes anointed by the Holy Spirit. And the power of this resides in the Gospel. Where else can absolute integrity of character come from? God has a plan for all our lives. You are included into his plan. Just receive him and his word. Amen.

Give God glory for his delivering word!

GO TO THE LIGHT – Giving God glory for his delivering word.

The World Journalism Institute (WJI) exists to recruit, equip, and encourage, journalists who are Christians. WJI holds courses, conferences, workshops and seminars throughout the year: They have occurred most often in New York City, Austin, and Asheville, N.C., but also in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and other media centers. WJI offers internships with the World News Group and at secular publications to its most promising students. From 1999 to March, 2013, some 461 students went through WJI courses. (taken from Wikipedia)

Biblical journalism is something I thought I had learned to do — as a lay person, alone in my home office, on my knees next to bed, with my library of several bible versions and dictionaries (lexicons and commentaries) opened and in the ready all over the quilted bed-cover. But that’s not good enough? Today I learn this institution has called together some serious professionals to teach the biblical world view. Wow! The world needs to know this!

English: Mark the Evangelist, image 21 of the Codex Aureus of Lorsch or Lorsch Gospels, presumably written in the scriptorium of the Lorsch Abbey (Hofschule Karls des Großen), Germany.

(Wikipedia)

WJI emerged in 1999 out of discussions among WORLD Magazine staffers and board members Joel Belz, Marvin Olasky, Nick Eicher, and Robert Case II. Its original mission statement emphasized the practice of biblical journalism in both Christian and secular venues: “We teach students to apply a biblical grid through which to view the world theater of God’s handiwork, and then we show them how to report that divine handiwork in an engaging manner to the reading public.”[worldji.com]

I was just outside in the heat and the word came, Biblical Journalism training to the world. I finished up raking the grass clippings  and returned to the shed with the rake and gloves to put them back, and I noticed it was coffee break-time, so I made a note in my notebook, and went to the kitchen.

I knew to look for some source on the subject and lo and behold, there is an institution established to educate and place Christian (Messianic), and agnostic (atheist) journalists into the newsroom of the world. What? Yes, the world. And I did not know about this? Did you know this? I came from a secular family who swallow evolution.

I have called myself a biblical journalist since I began writing my book ‘A Worthy Rock’ which seems like several years ago. I went to our pastor, and presented my plan to write a book — showing him and his head counselor the details I plotted visually. This was January 2012. (2 1/2 years ago).

Having done that, I was directly influenced by their prayers over this work. I completed the (novel) book in less than a year. But my writing was not finished. I began to write articles for this (theology401) weblog that God gave me to begin. (what I needed was some direction to associate with groups like WJI, but basically, God gave me the wisdom to learn the biblical rules by growing in grace according to Adonai’s (Yeshua-Jesus’s) standards.

RULE NUMBER ONE – THE RELATIONSHIP OF AUTHOR AND EDITOR

Center the Holy Spirit, (Ruach ha-Kodesh) in your heart of hearts.’ I heard. This enabled the nom de plume (pen-name for the Holy Spirit) of Frank Ketoret. Frank is the voice I hear in my heart of hearts. And I can only hear him when that door is opened to him. His love will fill a room — and also fill the great room that was made to be filled by him with each of us. (I receive that — even to write, or do whatever.)

Proverbs 18:16 (AMP)  “A man’s gift (Heb. mattan, ‘present’ [NJB]) makes room for him and brings him before great men.”

1 Corinthians 12:31 (AMP) “But earnestly desire and zealously cultivate the greatest and best gifts (Grk. charisma, divine gratuity) and graces (the higher gifts and the choicest graces). And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [one that is better by far and the highest of them all—love].”

Here is the same verse in Message: “But it’s obvious by now, isn’t it, that Christ’s church is a complete Body and not a gigantic, unidimensional Part? It’s not all Apostle, not all Prophet, not all Miracle Worker, not all Healer, not all Prayer in Tongues, not all Interpreter of Tongues. And yet some of you keep competing for so-called “important” parts. But now I want to lay out a far better way for you.”

RULE NUMBER TWO – LISTEN AND OBEY

Luke 11:28 (CJB) “But Yeshua said, ‘On the contrary, (other than ‘blessed is the womb that bore you.’) [far more] blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe [obey] it.'” (NASB [CJB]) “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it (and put it into practice).” Luke 8:21 (NASB, [NJB])

1 Peter 4:16-17 (CJB) “But if anyone suffers for being Messianic (Christian), let him not be ashamed; but let him bring glory to God by the way he bears this name. 17 For the time has come for the judgment to begin. It begins with the household of God; and if it starts with us, what will the outcome be for those who are disobeying God’s Good News?” 

Matthew 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. . . 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.” (International Standard Version)

IN THE BEGINNING, GOD MADE A RULE, ‘LET THERE BE . . .’

Rule is probably too hard a word here, let’s segway to something more like guide. But I have always known that any direction that’s given by a Sovereign (Commander), has to be considered stronger: command is appropriate.

I just heard a brilliant message on TBN that tells creation like it is. Have you heard Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant teach? Here is his video about imagination (linked here). He directs us to Genesis 1, verse 1, and describes how before there was light, there was darkness. This was God’s creative moment. He then said, “Let there be.”

(Not yet saying the light word, God imagined what light would be like in the darkness). “Did you know, that there is a town on the northern coast of Alaska called Inupiaq, that the sun doesn’t shine 30-days of the year, and that it doesn’t set for 31 days of the year?”  Dr. Bryant said.

During the 30 dark days in that town there are more suicides than any other place on earth? And also, that during the 31 days of sunshine, that there are no suicides at all? This is showing us that we dream in the dark time; our imagination is free to work its wonders. But also, when there is no daylight to remember and process the dreams, creative imagination is denied, and causes self-destruction at record rates.

‘GO TO THE LIGHT!’ was the word that I heard when going down with the cargo helicopter and crew in Vietnam on my first and last combat mission. The dust caused by the large rotor blades impacting the ground made it impossible to see anything. It went from black to small little sparks of light as the electrical harnesses began to burn from the huge power surges.

‘Go to the light!’ I looked around seeing light come through the broken cockpit window while I realized my leg was just broken so walking out was impossible. All the other crewmembers walked out the open tail gate. The fuselage was resting on the right side, and I saw only the sunlight shining up from the pilot’s door. So I boldly leaned over the crewchief who was helping unstrap the pilot who was injured; and I slid out the window onto the burning deck. I used all my energy to leap-frog to the light and out of the flames.

Long story shortened, The pilot walked out with all the other three, but he alone came around to find me within inches of the burning cockpit. He yelled, “Get up marine! Let’s get out of here!” I was unable to move. My femur was broken cleanly by some impact I don’t remember (as if by an angel’s sword).

The captain came over to me, reached down grabbing my shoulder and yelled in my ear, “If you try as hard as you can and I try as hard as I can, we will both get up and out of here!” My effort to stand on my good leg was slow, but we did get up. We took baby steps like a 3-legged race. He had just dislocated his shoulder, but was still the help I needed.

We were almost to the top of the twelve-foot revetment, and the whole place exploded.

BOO-OOM! BAM! BOOM! BOOMMOOM! BAMMIDYBAM! BOOM!

It took three days for the burning of two hundred tons of artillery rounds. We were blown over the top and down to safety with only superficial burns on our hands and face. It was downhill from there, but I felt I must pray something, so I said the Lord’s prayer. The pilot said I didn’t have to, but I finished my memorized prayer.

PRAYING THAT PRAYER WAS GIVING GOD GLORY FOR HIS DELIVERING WORD

There have been only a few times I have  heard God’s voice, but I obeyed it and was saved. I hope you can do the same.

GO TO THE LIGHT – ‘God cares about his name’ . . . A heart issue

Chinese lanterns in the night sky of Lijiang, Yunnan (Wikipedia)

Batteries not included!’

I got this (batteries) title just following devotion which fills me up with eternal energy to write something worth writing. The lamp may be without batteries, and electrical, but the moon and the stars are eternal. I’ve been to China only once. It was also a dark time. We arrived in the Taiwan (Indo-China) port after sailing from Okinawa. Taipei was under quarantine for some plague and we could not disembark. It was a troop ship, and we picked up some troops (who were cleared of the disease) for the long 17-day cruise across the Pacific ocean.

THE LIGHT WE ARE LOOKING TO GO TO IS THE GOSPEL-LIGHT

Yochanan (John) 12: 35-36 Jesus said, “For a brief time still, the light is among you. Walk by the light you have so darkness doesn’t destroy you. If you walk in darkness, you don’t know where you’re going. As you have the light, believe in the light. Then the light will be within you, and shining through your lives. You’ll be children of light.” (MSG)

One of my very favorite sources is the book, Gospel Light by George M. Lamsa (An Indispensable Guide to the Teachings of Jesus and the Customs of His Time). He tells us that since there was no electricity, all work and travel had to be done in daylight. Only in emergencies would people risk accidents because of the darkness.

Yeshua had been as a light to his talmidim (disciples). He was telling the real interpretation of Scriptures. His revelations were firsts.  Now darkness would make the light go away for a while. He tried to explain his light going, for a good reason — that his Messianic return would be glorious. (Page 372, ‘Walk in the Light’, with permission)

THE BIBLE USES 19 DIFFERENT HEBREW WORDS TO DESCRIBE LIGHT

The one Hebrew word used most, to express the English word light, is ‘owr (ore), and occurs 121 times: to make luminus, illumination, both literally, as lightning, and figuratively, as happiness. The next most word used is (15 times) ma’owr (maw-ore) is feminine gender and means brightness or cheerfulness. The next is (5 times) qalal (kaw-lal’) to be light, swift, small, sharp. Another, four timer is niyr (neer) to glisten, a lamp, or light. Then, three is nehiyr (neh-heere) for illumination or wisdom. Then two times is, ‘alah (aw-law) to ascend, to be high. And lastly, eleven words remain to describe some differing (idiomatic) usage of the word light: But the usage use to describe spiritual life is this: illumination, happiness, brightness, cheerfulness, and wisdom. (Strongs)

This research is easily done counting the 161 listings of the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance. I seem to have the time for doing this. Sometimes it proves interesting. Like, ask this — why doesn’t the Old Covenant (Tanakh) tell anything about the Holy Spirit? He was there, right? Yes, but known only as being poured upon dynamically in the form of oil anointing, not as within powerfully in the Spirit, in the New Covenant.

We can think of the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) as the ‘mighty arm of God’ physically. Like the water that came from the rock, that was real, and that was pure. The fire from which God spoke, that was real and holy. And the ground Moses, and Joshua stood upon when told to remove their shoes. The third Person of the God-head is like the second Person was, powerfully present on the earth.

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 42: 6,16, 6 “I the Lord have called you (My Servant) to demonstrate my righteousness. I will guard and support you, for I have given you to my people as the personal confirmation of my covenant with them. You shall also be a light (‘OWR) to guide the nations unto me. . .16 He will bring blind Israel along a path they have not seen before. He will make the darkness bright (‘OWR) before them and smooth and straighten out the road ahead. He will not forsake them.”

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 45: 6-7, “I am Jehovah and there is no one else. I alone am God. 7 I form the light (‘OWR) and make the dark. I send good times and bad. I, Jehovah, am he who does these things.” (NLT)

AS HUMAN BEINGS WE ARE MADE TO BE SALT AND LIGHT

The pastor of Shepherd’s Grove, Bobby Schuller, says in his new book, Happiness According to Jesus, that the Lord is telling us “What a human being actually is; we are made to be salty, and we are made to be light, and when we are anything different or act in a different way, we lose what it means to be a human being. He’s telling us, ‘Shine. Be salty.’ Jesus (Yeshua) says to his people, “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

“You are the light of the world. You’re the salt of the earth. . .You’re my plan. I have one plan to save the world, and you’re it. I”ve got a plan A, and there’s no plan B or C. I have one plan and it’s you. I intend to overcome evil with good in human history, and I intend to use you to do it.” Pastor Bobby said prophetically.

Pastor Bobby used the metaphor of a lightbulb to illustrate this. “I am a lightbulb, and I am in a dark room and I decide I want to illuminate this room. I somehow turn myself on. Boom! I turn myself on because I intend to fill this room with light. I have also illuminated myself. Does that make sense? When we focus on others, doing good for others, we also become illuminated.” (Chapter 2, page 30, with permission)

GREEK WORDS ARE JUST AS ILLUMINATING

1 Corinthians 4:5, 5 So don’t pronounce judgment prematurely, before the Lord comes; for he will bring to light (photizo, to illumine) what is now hidden in darkness; he will expose the motives of people’s hearts; and then each will receive from God whatever praise he deserves. (CJB)

2 Corinthians 4:4,6,  They do not come to trust because the god of the ‘olam hazeh (this world, this age) has blinded their minds, in order to prevent them from seeing the light (photismos, illumination) shining from the Good News about the glory of the Messiah, who is the image of God. . . 6 For it is the God who once said, “Let light (phos) shine out of darkness,” who has made his light (phos) shine in our hearts, the light (photismos, light) of the knowledge of God’s glory shining in the face of the Messiah Yeshua. (CJB)

HERE IS THE HEART (OF THE FIRE) OF THE POWERFUL LIGHT

This morning on the CBS This Morning News program, they interviewed a young commedian who is a reality show host with his actress wife and their five children. He was asked, “How do you keep it clean?” And without hesitation, he said, “Jesus said to.” And everybody laughed. (I tried to find it and it’s not there)

Did you see that? What was your reaction to that response to his humor? Was he serious saying that? Well, knowing he is a commedian was a give-away, because they are quick to give out one-liner responses. Yet can we shed light on the truth here? Taking Jesus’ name in vain is wrong. It hurt to hear laughing at his name.

The evangelist who spoke Sunday morning at the Church of His Presence, Pat Schatzline, said, “God doesn’t care about his ministry, HE CARES ABOUT HIS NAME!” He quoted Charles Spurgeon, “Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.”

His text was James 4:7,  7 Therefore, submit to God. Moreover, take a stand against the Adversary, and he will flee from you. 8 Come close to God, and he will come close to you. Clean your hands, sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded people! 9 Wail, mourn, sob! Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into gloom! 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (CJB)

COMPARE WITH THE MESSAGE TRANSLATION

7-10 So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet. (MSG)
