WHY WAS AZAZEL THE SCAPEGOAT?

There is an ordinance in Leviticus chapter sixteen that says the people of Israel shall for atonement use two goats: one for sacrifice and the other as the scapegoat to run free into the desert to carry away the sins of Israel. The original Hebrew word for scapegoat was “azazel”, which means “goat for escape”. Azazel was also an angel that sinned greatly in the time of Jared. Genesis chapter six speaks of angels lusting after human women and marrying them, and even had children with them. These angels also taught humans to sin greatly, according to the book of Enoch, a genuine book of the Bible that isn’t included in most Bibles. Azazel was among these angels. One of the leaders, in fact. Azazel was not another name for Satan, as some believe. His fall came well after Satan’s, and they fell in two completely different ways. Satan wanted to become God while Azazel conspired to marry women and taught men to sin.

The scapegoat spoken of in Leviticus 16 was for Azazel, the fallen angel. In the book of Enoch the prophet, chapter ten verse eight, God said to ascribe all sin to him. This is done through the release of the scapegoat. One of the two goats, chosen by drawing lots, Aaron, and then later his descendants, was to put his hands upon the head of the scapegoat and confess all the sins of Israel to transfer them to it and release it away from the people (Leviticus 16:20-22).

There are ways to find the book of Enoch and I highly recommend it. It is easily one of the most fascinating books of the Bible, and Enoch was one very special prophet. One of two people in history who hasn’t experienced death (Genesis 5:21-24).

DID WE USED TO BE ANGELS?

I have heard of some who teach this, but the answer to the question of whether we were angels is ‘no’. In order to believe we were angels, one must also believe God put us into weaker human flesh to give us another chance through Jesus, His only begotten Son. The book of Enoch tears this doctrine down completely. What Genesis chapter six partially explains, the book of Enoch clearly demonstrates. Angels after the fall of Satan and his angels (and our creation also, because according to the ‘angel doctrine’, this is when we fell as angels), found human women to be attractive and married them. These angels included Azazel and Semjaza. After they did this, they were imprisoned inside the earth awaiting judgment. God has already judged them as guilty. As bad as what Azazel and those angels involved with his plot was, the angels involved with Satan’s plot was much worse. Azazel and his angels intermarried with human women while Satan and his angels tried to make him God. God didn’t give Azazel and his angels a second chance, so why would He give the angels who went along with Satan one?

THE WONDERFUL WORKS OF OUR LORD GOD AND JESUS CHRIST

The word YHWH (“YAH-weh”- real Hebrew pronunciation of Jehovah) means “self-existent”. Where did God come from? How was He able to exist? We are not allowed to know such things in this flesh. Only arrogance would make us think we are entitled to know. We do know He is Alpha, the first. Since He was the first, He was alone. Through wisdom, He created things so He would no longer be alone.

Of the many works we see God has wrought, nothing is more amazing than the creation of a soul. The ability to create such a thing, He would only have incredible wisdom. Wisdom beyond our ability to imagine. This wisdom could only come through righteousness, and a commitment to only doing what is right. By this commitment to righteousness, our existence was possible. Everything we are, everything we see, and everyone and everything we love was created by Him through His wisdom, which came by His righteousness.

“In the beginning, the Earth was void” is commonly known, but it wasn’t our beginning. There was a mistranslation in that line, and it should read “In the beginning, the Earth became void…” Afterall, how can the Earth be void before being created? On the sixth day, God said “Let Us make man in Our image.” Again, we already existed. We had a name- man. As Romans 8 and Jeremiah 1:5 gives clear evidence of, our creation is older than this flesh. What God was subtly saying was “This time, let Us make man in Our image.” As I have written many times, Romans 8:29-30 tells us that some from our creation were judged innocent before this life, and Romans 11:4 says that God has reserved seven thousand of them for this last generation. Those very few who were judged innocent before this life are called the election of grace in this life.

Because only very few out of the many billions of this creation were innocent before this life, God thought it was right to give this creation another chance. He could have brought judgment upon all, but that would have condemned such a great portion of our creation that He had this other idea. For our creation to achieve everlasting life, He would send a Messiah to atone for our sins that occurred before and during this life. To do so, He could never sin. He would be tormented by Satan all His life to the moment of His death to hopefully not allow Him to die. See, many Christians believe Satan had Jesus killed out of his hatred for Him, but that is far from true.

The second temptation of Christ from Satan was how He was put on top of a pillar of the Temple, and Satan told Him to call on the angels to save Him, because it was written that He had authority over the angels, even to save Him from hitting His foot upon a stone. Satan’s plan was to torture Christ so badly physically and mentally that He would call on the angels to save Him, assuring the death of this creation. Think from His point of view: He is put in this flesh among this creation, which by far most were already guilty before this life, to suffer during life and death at the hands of this creation He was here to save. Even knowing what He was entitled to, which was everything, He let the people He was here to save hit and spit in His face, and mock and humiliate Him. Even on the cross knowing He was doing a great work for them, people said “Look, He saved others, but He cannot save Himself.” He definitely could have, but He accepted all the pain and humiliation and swallowed the acceptance to die for these who made Him suffer. Satan used his children to give his best shot to have Christ call on the angels to get Him out of it, but He did not, only to give this creation a shot at everlasting life.

Either in this age or the next, to have everlasting life, one has to go through Christ. In this life, everyone, even those who do not know Him or the real God, had a law of loving the neighbor written in their hearts. Paul said in Romans 2 that those who did not have the Law, which are the laws given to Moses, had a law that that they were all judged by. Jesus said that all of the commandments, laws, and prophets hang on the laws of loving God and loving the neighbor. If one didn’t know the true God, they still had the other great law that they were held accountable for. Some souls bring their wickedness with them to this life, and some become wicked, but if they do not love their neighbor, they are condemned. If they do love their neighbor, they are justified, but await the test at the end of the next age.

What do you do to give thanks for existence? It is impossible to imagine non-existence. How do you repay Him? The biggest thing we can do, which cannot compare with His gifts to us, is making sure He does not condemn us. Live by His laws and statutes, even if we really enjoy the sin. What sacrifice of yours can compare to His or our Christ’s? If you aren’t sure what is right and wrong, seek it. Take your wants out of your quest to know or else you will not discover anything. After that, He will guide you to do what He wants you to do. No matter how tough it is, They are worthy of it. Give thanks to Them everyday. Keep in mind Jesus’ suffering and why He accepted it- it was for you. It was for me. It was for all.

May all praise be to You, our Lord God and Lord Y’shua, for Your lovingkindness is everlasting.

LESSONS CHAPTER BY CHAPTER – THE CHURCH OF PHILADELPHIA

For those who do not know, I have another site where I deal with what is written in each chapter of the Bible. I started with the Gospel of Matthew, then skipped the other gospels for now, to Acts of the Apostles through Revelation. I have just finished 1st Thessalonians and I’m adding onto it pretty quickly. When I finish Revelation, I will either get back to the other gospels or Genesis. While this site deals with questions about doctrine, as well as the perpetrators who are purposely bringing about the end to secure a worldwide oligarchy, the other site gives lessons about each chapter from the point of view of one of the elect. The site is called “The Church of Philadelphia”, the church of the elect.

VERSE(S) OF THE DAY/WEEK

This will be a collection of verses from the Bible that I feel I should share or might be of some importance on a particular day. Some instances, because of the message involved, there will be a few verses instead of just one. If there is any explanation or translation corrections, I will do so. This probably won’t be exactly an everyday thing since I have health issues and anything can happen on any particular day.

I do want to thank the Lord God and Lord Yeshua for bestowing upon me a great blessing of understanding completely things that were revealed to me many years ago about the struggle I would endure for the next fifteen years and that those days are coming to an end very soon. A blessing for my forty day fast and my works. There was only one path given for me to travel, but finally I’m coming home. Praise God and our Saviour, Lord Yeshua!

2/14/14: Matthew 11:25 & Luke 10:21 “At that time Jesus answered and said, ‘I thank You, oh Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes.'” -The wise just meant educated. Corrolate this verse with what is going on today. Personal geniuses couldn’t fill a thimble with their wisdom.

2/15/14: Acts of the Apostles 9:5 “And he (Paul) said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you persecute: it is hard for you to kick against the pricks.'” -A prick was a wooden spike part of a plow that would till the ground as an ox walked. If the ox wouldn’t walk, the prick could be angled upward to jab at the ox in order to get it to move. Sometimes, however, the ox would kick behind itself against the prick causing more pain and injury. Jesus saying this meant that He had been calling Paul for a while to come to Him, but instead Paul reacted against the calling, driving him to hunt Christians down. Christ would not let go of bringing Paul to Him because Paul was one of the elect. As I’ve written here, the elect can be hardheaded (possibly due to our nature from time’s past), but God will eventually make them not only answer their call, but also make sure they are where He needs them in every way. Paul became one of the greatest apostles and suffered greatly to spread the Gospel of Christ. Not one of those early Christians that Paul helped condemn, some to death, condemned Paul after his death, including the first martyr Stephen. I guarantee you that. I bless and all should bless Paul for his determination to spread the Gospel that Jesus was Lord through so much suffering, and he’s still teaching disciples today. What a fellowship we have!

2/16/14: “All they that see Me laugh at Me to scorn: they portrude their lips, they shake the head, saying,” “‘He trusted on the Lord, that He would deliver Him: let Him deliver Him seeing He delighted in Him.'”- These two verses were not from the gospels, but from Psalm 22:7-8 written around 1000BC. This whole psalm was written about the Lord on the cross to which He was referring to when He quoted “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” He wasn’t speaking to God on the cross, but instead quoting the first part of Psalm 22 to show He was indeed the Son of God.

2/18/14: Isaiah 29:14 “Therefore I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a perplexity: for the wisdom of the knowledgeable will be removed and the understanding of the smart shall be hidden.”

2/19/14: 1st Corinthians 7:4 “The wife has no power over her body, but the husband does, and likewise a husband has no power over his body, but the wife does.”

2/20/14: Hebrews 4:14-15 “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold strongly our profession.” “For we have not a High Priest which cannot identify with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in ALL points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” -This proves 100% that Jesus, our Christ had the ability to sin, but did not, for anyone who thinks on the contrary.

2/20/14: Isaiah 2:4 “And He shall judge among the nations, and rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they know war anymore.”

2/22/14: Hosea 6:2 “After two days He will revive us (Israel): in the third day He will raise us up and we shall live in His sight.” -This was when the prophet Hosea was speaking to Israel about their restoration after being scattered by Assyria and Babylon. As it is written, to our Lord a day is as a thousand years. After 2500 years, or during the third day to our Lord, Israel was once again established as a nation. Another prophecy that no atheist or believer in any other religion can explain away.

2/23/14: Leviticus 26:27-33 “And if you will not after all this hearken to Me, but walk against Me;” “Then I will walk against you also in fury: and I, even I will chastize you seven times for your sins.” “And you shall eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat.” “And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and My Soul shall abhor you.” “And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors.” “And I will bring the land to desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.” “And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate and your cities waste.” -This was God warning the Israelites through Moses, so this was predicted well before it happened, and it most certainly happened. Let an atheist explain away this prophecy.

2/24/14: 1st Timothy 5:8 “But if any does not provide for himself, and especially for those of his own house, HE HAS DENIED THE FAITH, AND IS WORSE THAN AN INFIDEL.”

2/25/14: 2nd Peter 2:18-19 “For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.” “While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same he is brought into bondage.” -Don’t let anyone entice you that sin is freedom and liberty, because you will be in bondage to it forever.

2/26/14: 2nd Thessalonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any man refuses to work, neither should he eat.”

2/27/14: 2nd Thes. 2:3-4 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not arrive except there comes a falling away first (from Christ), and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the Temple of God, showing himself to be God.”

2/28/14: Genesis 45:5 “Now therefore do not be grieved, nor angry with yourselves that you sold me here: for God sent me here before you to preserve life.” -This was what Joseph said to his brothers after he revealed himself to them in Egypt. His brothers sold him into slavery and he wound up being a prisoner for sexual assault of his master’s wife, but was innocent. He was there a long while and suffered greatly. His ability to interpret dreams led him to be in charge of Egypt, second only to Pharoah. Pharoah’s dream that Joseph interpreted foretold a great famine following prosperity. It isn’t written exactly how Joseph was able to combat this famine other than storing food, but there is in Egypt the Bahr Yussef, or “waterway of Joseph” in Arabic. It’s a manmade canal that allowed for the Nile to flow in the lowlands which would allow the Egyptians to grow crops. It is well accepted by historians this waterway was done by Joseph, the son of Jacob.

Joseph for most of this time, and perhaps not until the moment he revealed himself felt anger towards his brothers for what they did to him, but his realization was right. This was God’s plan. Sometimes we don’t know what God has in store for us, but if He’s with you eventually the epiphony of His purpose will come to you.

3/1/14: Matthew 13:57 “And they (Nazarenes) were offended by Him. But Jesus said to them ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his own land, and in his own house.'” -Before they recognized Jesus by His relatives being present also, they listened to Him intently. After they recognized Him, they immediately became offended.

3/2/14: Matthew 22:17-21 “Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar or not?” “But Jesus perceived of their wickedness, and said, ‘Why do You tempt Me, you hypocrites?'” “‘Show Me the tribute money.’ And they brought Him a denarius.” “And He said, ‘Whose is this image and superscription?'” “They said to Him, ‘Caesar’s.’ Then He said to them, ‘Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.'” -What man could have come up with this on their own, but the Christ?

3/3/14: Exodus 12:23 “For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood (of the lamb) on the lintel, and on the two side doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not have the destroyer come into your houses to smite you.” -This is obviously where the term “passover” comes from, when the Lord passed over those who had the blood of a lamb on their houses as He killed the firstborn in the land of Egypt. It is not a coincidence that they were saved by the blood of a lamb, for we are all saved by the blood of the Lamb of God, our Lord Jesus Christ. Through the blood of the Lamb, we will be passed over for punishment when judgment comes. One last tidbit, the “destroyer” here is not Satan as some might think. That term for the destroyer as in Satan is “Abaddon”. The original Hebrew word in this verse was “shaw-KHATH”, which means “to decay”, “to cause ruin”.

3/4/14: Exodus 23:20-23 “Behold, I send an Angel before you, to show the way, and to bring you to the place which I have prepared.” “Beward of Him and hear His voice, and do not provoke Him: for He will not pardon your transgressions: for My Name is in Him.” “But if you do obey His voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.” “For My Angel shall go before you, and bring you into the land of Amorites, and the Hitties, and the Perrizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.” – This Angel was Jesus Christ.

3/5/14: Matthew 16:26 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” -Jesus to His disciples after He told them He would suffer at the hands of the scribes, elders, and chief priests and be killed.

3/6/14: Exodus 23:2 “You shall not follow the masses to do evil; neither shall you speak in a way against another to pervert justice.”

3/7/14: Acts of the Apostles 15:20 “But we (apostles) write to them (Gentile Christians) that they abstain from the pollutants of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.” -James This was after a debate on what to do with the early Gentile Christians. They debated whether to circumcise them, have them stay away from the same foods that Jews abstain from. They were basically debating if they should turn the Gentile into a Jew. This ordinance was agreed upon by the apostles and was then sent to all the churches. There was still an effort afterward by Jews to try to get Gentiles to become like Jews, which Paul had to wrestle with basically all of his life.

3/8/14: Matthew 16:22-23 “Then Peter took Him and began to rebuke Him, saying, ‘Let it be far from You, Lord: this shall not be for You.'” “But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan: you are an offense to Me: for you savor not the things that are God’s, but those that are men’s.” -This was after Jesus told His disciples He would be delivered to the elders, chief priests, and the scribes to be killed, but rise on the third day. Jesus directing His rebuke of Satan to Peter was because Satan can use anybody. Jesus knowing of His cruel, impending death was already having a tough time dealing with it. Peter urging Him not to give Himself over to this death would tempt Him to not fulfill His purpose. Even though it was the offspring of Satan that would kill Him (Jesus’ words), Satan through his children tried to make it so hard that He hopefully wouldn’t receive His death. That’s why Satan put Jesus atop a pillar of the Temple and told Him to have the angels save Him. That is why His death was so brutal. That is why his offspring mocked Him on the cross, saying “Let’s see if He can come down.” “Let’s see if God will send His angels seeing He delighted in Him.” “Others He saved, but Himself He cannot save.” If He saved Himself, we would not be saved.

3/9/14: Revelation 12:7-9 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,” “And prevailed not; neither was their place found anymore in heaven.” “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” -“That old serpent” was John referring to the serpent that beguiled Eve. Many think this prophecy already happened because it was written in past tense, but John saw this vision of the future. It was the past to him, not to us. Many prophecies which have yet to be fulfilled are written in the past tense because the prophets saw the future.

3/10/14: Revelation 20:2 “And he (an angel) laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.” -Again John referred to Satan as that old serpent that beguiled Eve. This verse also must be put into the perspective I gave yesterday, which is these things have not happened yet. If Satan has already been bound and put in the bottomless pit for a millennium, when did he come out? It’s been two thousand years since Revelation was written.

3/11/14: Psalm 16:10 “For You will not leave My Soul in Sheol (hell), neither will You have Your Holy One to see decay.” -King David +-1000BC

3/12/14: Romans 11:1 “I say then, has God cast away His people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.” -Paul, the apostle

3/13/14: 2nd Peter 3:3-8 “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,” “And saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of our creation.'” “For this they are willingly ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the land standing out of the water and in the water.” “Whereby the world that was then overflowed with water, perished.” “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day to the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

3/14/14: Deuteronomy 11:18 “Therefore you shall lay up my words in your heart, and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontals on your foreheads.” -Moses to the Israelites. This same reference to the hand and forehead was also in Deut. 6:8, and Exodus 13:16. If this sounds familiar in another place to you, it’s because this is also said about one taking the mark of the beast. People have thought that one would have a chip implanted in the hand or forehead, but that’s most likely not correct. It’s your symbolic hand and forehead. Saying that though, there will be some sort of identification used showing that you follow the Antichrist. It does say no one without it will be able to buy, sell, or trade. There must be some way to identify a person to allow these transactions. Simply saying “I follow the Antichrist” won’t be good enough.

3/15/14: John 8:12 “Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world: he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

3/16/14: Deuteronomy 31:19-21 “Now therefore write this song for you, and teach it to the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song will be a witness for Me against the children of Israel.” “For after I I have brought them into the land which I swore to their fathers, that flows with milk and honey, and they have eaten and filled themselves, and become fat, then they will turn to other gods and serve them, and provoke Me, and break My covenant.” “And it will come to pass, when many evils and troubles have befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it will not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land I swore to them.” – Well before Israel followed other gods, this was written. This song God spoke of was the Song of Moses, Deuteronomy 32. In the song, it predicts how Israel will fall and follow other gods. It foretells of their punishment for it and how their enemies would believe Israel was brought down by their mighty hands, not by God. Then it says God will take vengeance on those nations and restore Israel through His mercy. Everything in this song happened as it says, and is a matter of historical record. More things atheists or believers in other religions cannot explain away.

3/17/14: Psalm 110:1 “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, until I have made Your enemies Your footstool.'” -A verse Jesus and His apostles brought up to explain that the Son of David is David’s Lord.

3/18/14: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

3/19/14: Judges 4:7-9 “And I will draw out for you Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army to the river Kishon with his chariots (of iron) and his multitude, and I will deliver him into your hand.” “And Barak said to her, ‘If you go with me, then I will go, but if you will not go with me, I will not go.'” “And she said, ‘I will surely go with you; however the journey you will take will not be for your honor, for the Lord will give Sisera into the hand of a woman.’ And Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh.”- Deborah was a prophet and one of the judges God sent to Israel to try to steer them back to God (Judges 4:4). For anyone that says God or the Bible is anti-woman, point out the story of Deborah. She was a prophet of God, and the men of Israel would not go out to battle without this woman. Sisera wound up seeking sanctuary to the tent of Hobab, of the line of Cain while he was out in battle. His wife Jael (Yael in Hebrew) took him in and told him to hide there, but she killed him as he slept.

3/20/14: Genesis 2:4-5 “These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.” “And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.”- Then He created Adam. Many, including Shepherd’s Chapel believe that this shows that God created Adam on the “eighth day”, but I will as clearly as I can disprove this. Plants were created on the third day while man was created on the sixth day. There not being any man to till the ground was because there was no man at all. Clearly in these verses it was going back to the days of creation and spoke of a specific man He created. If anyone disagrees with this, answer me this question: What would prevent men of the sixth day creation from tilling the ground?

3/21/14: Luke 2:41-42 “And it came to pass, that when Elisabeth (Mother of John the Baptist) heard the salutation of Mary, the baby lept in her womb, and Elisabeth became filled with the Holy Spirit:” “And she spoke with a loud voice, and said, ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.'”- This is for Christians who for some reason believe it’s okay for women to abort their babies.

3/22/14: John 1:1-2 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” “The same was in the beginning with God.”- The “Word” is Jesus, since Jesus is the foundation of this world

3/23/14: Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophecy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”- There was certainly a taste of this after Jesus had risen away from the apostles on Pentecost, but there will come one day another pouring out. With the authority given to Christ, the Holy Spirit was given to men. Peter quoted this verse to those who heard the apostles speaking in tongues (Acts 2:16-17).

3/24/14: Acts 10:11-15 “And (Peter) saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending toward him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:” “Wherein were all manner of four-footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and reptiles, and fowls of the air.” “And there came a voice to him, ‘Rise, Peter, kill and eat.'” “But Peter said ‘No, Lord, for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.'” “And the voice spoke to him again the second time, ‘What God has cleansed, do not call common.'”- The “creeping things” in the KJV is a reference to reptiles. “Common” means “shared (implication by Gentiles), defiled”. This vision to Peter was God saying to Peter that He has cleansed the Gentiles through Jesus, so they are no longer defiled.

3/25/14: Revelation 8:10-11 “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a kamp, and it fell upon the third part of rivers, and upon the fountains of waters.” “And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters because they were made bitter.”- In Ukrainian, the word “wormwood” is “chernobyl”. In the original Greek, the word is “άψινθος” (AP-sin-thohs), which the drink “absynthe” is named after because of its bitterness. Now I’m not saying that the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl in the 90s is this plague, because it’s not, but it will be similar. There could be another fallout or its waste can be used to harm people either by accident or a purposeful act of man.

3/26/14: Matthew 24:31 “And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end to heaven.”- Thus, the church of Philadelphia will be kept from the hour of temptation (Rev. 3:10).

3/27/14: Luke 21:24 “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”- Jesus was saying two things here under the surface. One, He was telling them He was not here to rescue them from Roman oppression. Two, Israel and Jerusalem specifically will come under Israeli control once again. A Gentile is anyone that is not an Israelite, for those who claim to be Christians but against Israel today. One of many verses that prove haters of Israel to be fools.

3/28/14: Genesis 4:1-2 “And Adam accepted Eve his wife, and she conceived and bare Cain, and said, ‘I have gotten a man from the Lord.'” “And she continued and bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of the sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.”- The word “again” in verse 2 was mistranslated.

3/29/14: Matthew 23:27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitened sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead man’s bones, and of uncleanness.”- Jesus scorning the enemies of God

3/30/14: Revelation 10:7 “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God shall be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets.”- This is proof there is NO pre-trib rapture. If before anythings happens, millions of Christians and only Christians are taken away, then what would be left of the mystery?

3/31/14: Acts 23:11 “And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, ‘Be of good cheer, Paul; for as you have testified of Me in Jerusalem, so must you bear witness also in Rome.'”- Jesus appeared to Paul the second time, this time after Paul was facing perhaps death from the Pharisees in Jerusalem. After two years being imprisoned (and could have been let go if he had not appealed to Caesar), and after a shipwreck, and other struggles, he finally made it to Rome. No matter how many bumps, or twists and turns there are on the way, the promises of the Lord will always come true.

4/1/14: John 21:17 “He said to him a third time, ‘Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?’ Peter was grieved because He said this to him a third time, ‘Do you love Me?’ And he said to Him, ‘Lord, You know all things. You know I love You’. Jesus said to him, ‘Feed My sheep.'”- Peter’s shoulders carried the burden of the building of the churches. Many sheep have been fed by Peter. God bless Simon Peter.

4/2/14: Matthew 17:24-26 “And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter and said, ‘Does uour Master pay tribute?'” “He said ‘Yes.’ And when he came into the house, Jesus stopped him, saying, ‘What do you think, Simon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute, of their own children, or of strangers?'” “Peter said to Him, ‘Then the children are free.'”

4/3/14: Revelation 19:11-13 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse: and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousnessHe does judge and make war.” “His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His crowd were many crowns: and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.” “And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.”- In the Hebrew, “Word of God” would be “Debar Yahweh”.

4/4/14: Matthew 28:18 “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All power has been given to Me in heaven and in earth.'”

4/5/14: Matthew 15:10-11 “And He called the multitude, and said to them ‘Hear and understand.'” “It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but which comes out of the mouth that defiles a man.”

4/6/14: Luke 6:5 “And He said to them ‘That the Son of Man is Lord also of the sabbath.'”- This is after Jesus pointed out scripture to the hypocritical, unwise Pharisees where David went into the house of God and ate bread which was only lawful for priests to eat when he fled from Saul.

4/7/14: John 1:23 “He (John the Baptist) said, ‘I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord’, as said the prophet Isaiah (40:3).'”

4/8/14: Genesis 5:23-24 “And all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years:” “And Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.”- He is one of two people to not die in the Bible. The other being Elijah.

4/9/14: Deuteronomy 32:43 “Rejoice, O you nations with His people: for He will avenge the blood of His servants, and will render vengeance to His adversaries, and will be merciful to His land and to His people.”- This is the last verse of the Song of Moses, which God commanded him to write where God prophesied that the Israelites would follow strange gods and be punished and scattered. He also prophesied that He would restore them in time. Yet another prophecy that atheists can’t explain away.

4/10/14: Ecclesiastes 1:9 “The thing that has been, it is what shall be, and that which is done is that what shall be done, and there is no new thing under the Sun.”- I’m not new. You’re not new. This isn’t new.

4/11/14: Job 22:5-10 “Is not your wickedness great, and your iniquities infinite?” “For you have taken payment from your brother for nothing, and stripped the naked of their clothing.” “You have not given water to the thirsty, and you have withheld bread from the hungry.” “But as for the powerful man, he had the earth, but the honorable man onky dwells in it.” “You have sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.” “Therefore snares are all around you, and sudden fear troubles you.”- This is what Eliphaz the Temanite accused Job of, but spoke wrongly from God’s point of view. Job was the most righteous man on earth in God’s eyes (1:8, 2:3). Eliphaz laid the same accusations onto Job marxists do to their wealthy enemies today. The connection is undeniable. Any marxist that uses the Word to accuse their Christian enemies, then remember these verses and also the commandment “You shall not covet your neighbor’s possessions.”

4/13/14: Zechariah 14:2-4 “For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken, and the houses robbed, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.” “Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle.” “And His feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley. Half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.”- This was written of in the gospels and Revelation quite clearly. Jesus described His return with the splitting of the Mount of Olives, as well as armies encompassing Jerusalem. He also said that Jerusalem will be trodden down of the Gentiles until their times are fulfilled. A Gentile is non-Jewish. Another important component is that this clearly states that God is against the nations which come against Jerusalem. Who has control of Jerusalem now? If you are against Israel and the Israelites being there, you align yourself with Satan, therefore cannot be a Christian.

4/14/14: Revelation 12:13-17 “And when the dragon saw that he was cast onto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child.” “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, whrre she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away with the flood.” “And the earth helped the woman, and the earth swallowed up the flood, which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”- The dragon was Satan (Rev. 12:9), the man child was Jesus, and the woman that beared Him was Mary, a Jew. Satan goes after her seed who keep the commandments and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. At that time, God will fulfill the promise He made with Israel that He would put His heart back into them. Now why it says Satan will go after the woman, and not the man child is because it is location-wise how Satan will go after those he hates in this plague. The battle of Armageddon is the battle at the mountains of Megiddo. That is what Armageddon means in Hebrew. This is where the nations aligned with Satan meet for war, and this plague is the reason explained. The time, times, and a half of a time is three and a half years. There is a year, then two years, then a half of a year. Add them up and you get three and a half years. The term “times” could be more, but I look at other scripture to define this. The tribulation is a seven year period that is divided into two separate three and a half year halves in Daniel 9:27, and Revelation 12:6 also clarifies how long she will be in the wilderness. Jesus warns those who are in Judea when the Antichrist sits in the Temple to flee to the mountains just before this plague comes (Matt. 24:15-16). Use this set of verses with yesterday’s verses for confirmation. Why I wrote these verses for today to confirm yesterday’s is because of the tragic killing of three Jews by a KKK former grand puba. There is no explaining this fact away with these verses: you cannot be a Christian and be against Israel, or Jews, because you are aligned with Satan.

4/16/14: Exodus 30:13-15 “This shall they (Israel) give, everyone that passes among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs): a half shekel shall be the offering of the Lord.” “Everyone that passes among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an offering to the Lord.” “The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than a half a shekel, when they give an offering to the Lord, to make an atonement for your souls.”- The Lord requires the same from the poor and the rich. Does He not know the poor have less? Still, He required them to give the same. Any marxist that likes to use the Word they don’t believe in to suit their need to marginilize, explain this one away.

4/17/14: Job 1:7 “And the Lord said to Satan, ‘Where did you come from?’ Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, ‘From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.'”- If Satan was in the bottomless pit, why would God have to ask him where he was at?

4/18/14 “Good Friday”: Matthew 26:63-64 “But Jesus held His peace. And the high priest answered and said to Him, ‘I adjure you by the living God, that You tell us whether You be the Christ, the Son of God.'” “Jesus said to him, ‘You have said, nevertheless I say to you, hereafter shall you see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of Power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”- Jesus saying “You have said” was Him saying ‘yes’. Another example of that was in Matthew 26:25 after Jesus said that one of the disciples would betray Him. Judas said, “Is it me?” Then Jesus answered him those same words, “You have said.” Jesus saying that He will be on the right hand of Power meant the right hand of God. He was referring to Psalm 110:1, where David wrote “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘You sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool.'” Jesus is now at the right hand of God, and of Power. When Jesus admitted He was the Christ, this was after the satanic priests and elders could find no credible witnesses to help put Him to death, so this was His chance to be let go, if He had only stayed silent. The only times Jesus wasn’t silent was to ensure His death sentence. He didn’t do so for Himself, for He was already Lord. He didn’t want to disappoint the Father, but mostly knew the souls of this creation were on the line. All praise be to the Lord Jesus Christ, our King of kings and Lord of lords!

4/19/14: Mark 14:61-62 “But He held His peace and answered nothing. Again the high priest (Caiaphas) asked Him, and said to Him, ‘Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?'” “And Jesus said, ‘I am, and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of Power (Psalm 110:1), and coming in the clouds of heaven.'”- “I am”, in this gospel, Jesus clearly admits to being the Son of God. When Moses came to the burning bush, Moses asked God for His name, to which God said “I am.”

4/20/14 Happy Easter! Matthew 26:31-34 “Then Jesus said to them, ‘All of you shall be offended because of Me this night: for it is written, I will smite the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad (Zech. 13:7).”” “But after I am risen again, I will go before you to Galilee.” “Peter answered and said to Him, ‘Though all men shall be offended because of You, but I will never be offended.'” “Jesus said to him, ‘Truly I say to you, that this night before the rooster crows you shall deny Me thrice.'”- All four gospels account for this, with slightly different takes between them. One should not be dismayed that the disciples fled or that Peter denied our Lord. They had to. God put it in them to. In the gospel of Luke, Jesus made sure His disciples had swords so they could escape with their lives (Luke 22:36-38). They needed to stay alive to spread the Gospel of the risen Christ, as well as starting the church.

4/21/14: Luke 22:36-38 “Then He said to them, ‘But now, ge that has a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.'” “For I say to you, this is that it is written of must soon be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was reckoned among the transgressors’: for the things concerning Me have an end.”

4/22/14: Matthew 26:52-54 “Then Jesus said to him (Peter), ‘Put up your sword into its sheath: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.'” “Do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He shall immediately give Me more than twelve legions of angels?” “But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that now it must be?”- Now some nonbelievers who love to use the Word against their enemies to say Jesus didn’t want people armed, but as yesterday’s set of verses show, that is a lie. “Those who take up the sword…” meant those who take up the sword against someone without cause. Now Peter was trying to protect Christ, but Jesus was to sacrifice Himself, but wanted Peter and the rest of His apostles to be able to escape the armed servants of the high priest. Jesus needed them to spread the Gospel and form His church after His death.

4/23/14: John 3:5 “Jesus answered, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.'”- The baptism of water washes away the sinful ways of the past, and Jesus was the baptism of the Holy Spirit, as John the Baptist said in the gospels.

4/24/14: Luke 9:48 “And Jesus said to them, ‘Whosoever shall receive this child in My name receives Me, and whosoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.'”

4/25/14: Exodus 4:10-11 “And Moses said to the Lord, ‘I am not eloquent, neither now, nor since You have spoken to Your servant: but I am slow of tongue.'” “And the Lord said to him, ‘Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord?'”- This was after God told Moses He wanted him to lead His chosen people out of Egypt by confronting Pharoah. God was angry at Moses’ lack of faith, but decided to use Aaron as His mouthpiece. Keep these two things in mind always, no matter how tough things are: all things are possible with God, and it is impossible for God to lie. Whatever He promises will be fulfilled. It’s quite a stunning thing, Moses’ humility was. He was raised by the daughter of Pharoah and was priviliged, but still Moses was described as the most humble man in the world. God bless Moses.

4/26/14: 2nd Chronicles 36:15-16 “And the Lord God of their fathers sent to them His messengers many times, because He had compassion on His people, and on His dwellingplace.” “But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose against His people to where there was no remedy.”- What has been done will happen again.

4/27/14: Hebrews 6:18 “That by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who left our refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us.”- God can never lie, so He always keeps His promises. It was Jesus who left (not fled in fear) our refuge, our habitation, to open up the kingdom of heaven and give us the opportunity to leave this life perfect without sin if we believe in Him and repent.

4/28/14: Titus 1:2 “In hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the age began.”- The original Greek word for “world” was “αιών” (ah-khee-OWN), which means “age”. This verse adds to yesterday’s.

4/29/14: Daniel 9:27 “And he (the Antichrist) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 yrs), and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease, and the overspreading of abominations he shall make desolate, even until the comsummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”- This is the same seven year period in Revelation, which is also divided in half. The beginning of the tribulation will be the opposite of what most will expect it to be. This will begin the sabbath Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:20.

4/30/14: Matthew 24:20 “But pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day.”- This has nothing to do with the rapture. This has to do with learning the Word and preparing for the end time. If a bird isn’t prepared for winter to come and fly south, then it will feel winter’s cold. The sabbath is explained in yesterday’s verse.

5/1/14: Genesis 49:16-17 “Dan shall rule his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.” “Dan shall be a serpent in the way, as an adder in the path, that bites the horses’ heels, so that his rider shall fall backwards.”- This was among the prophecies of Jacob to his twelve sons. This prophecy shows that Dan will hurt his own brothers and their own cause, and this prophecy was basically a curse. For this reason, the tribe of Dan was not given a lot among 144,000 of the twelve tribes of Israel. Joseph’s two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim were each given a lot as the Israelites took control of their land promised by God.

5/2/14: Luke 23:34 “Then Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them: for they know not what they do.’ And they parted His raiment and cast lots.”- Jesus, being the greatest of us all, said this after He was scorned, beaten, accused, spat on, scourged to the point chunks of His flesh were torn from His body, crucified, and mocked. Imagine the love and compassion He had to have for us to endure and accept these things, and not one benefit for Himself. He is most worthy of the title ‘Lord’. Since He is of His Father, this love came from His Father. Now consider how our Father would be accused of a hatemonger today. His raiment being lotted for fulfilled Psalm 22:18, written +/-1000BC.

5/3/14: John 21:18-19 “Truly, truly I say to you, when you were young, you clothed yourself and walked where you wanted. But when you shall be old, you shall stretch forth your hands, and another will clothe you, and carry you where you do not want to go.” “Thus He spoke, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when He had said this, He said to them, ‘Follow Me.'”- Jesus predicted that Peter would be crucified, which he was during the time of Nero.

5/4/14: John 3:17 “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”- “Sent”, as in past tense. Another verse of note showing that Jesus did admit He was the Son of God despite what fools say. The reason Jesus didn’t speak and act with anger was because that wasn’t what He was here to do, but don’t mistake Him not being of the same God as we read in the Old Testament, nor mistake God not being the Father of the forgiving, kindhearted Christ.

5/5/14: Acts 5:41 “And they (the apostles) departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.”- This was after the second time apostles were brought before the Satanic council where the chief priests would have liked nothing more to kill them, but their purpose made sure they would live.

5/8/14: Judges 4:11 “Now Heber the *Cain*, who was of the children of Hobab, Moses’ father in law, had severed himself from the Kenites, and pitched his tent into the plain of Zaanaim, which is by Kedesh.”- In the KJV, “Cain” was mistranslated as “Kenite”. This shows three things. One, Kenites come from Cain. Two, Kenites survived the flood somehow. Three, Jethro was a Kenite by blood. One can’t be of Cain by location like many of my critics will seemingly argue to death.

5/10/14: Numbers 24:21-22 “And he (Balaam) looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and said, ‘Strong is your dwellingplace, and you put your nest in a rock.'” “Nevertheless the *Cain* shall be wasted until Asshur shall carry you away captive.”- Another slight mistranslation, same as above.

5/11/14: Revelation 22:21 “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”- Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there.

5/12/14: Matthew 25:26-28 “His lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant, you knew that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed.” “Therefore you ought to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine with usury.” “Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him which has ten talents.”- This parable by Jesus shows that what gift God gives you, you better use for Him, and not just for yourself or waste it.

5/13/14: 1st Samuel 12:19 “And all the people said to Samuel, ‘Pray for your servants to the Lord your God, so we do not die: for we have added to all our sins this evil, to ask for us a king.'”- Israel was hardened of heart to demand a king to be over them as other nations had. God did not want His people to have anything above them, but Himself. They feared their enemies and were struggling, but all they had to do is repent and live righteously and God would have helped them. God did not make men to be ruled over by other men.

5/15/14: 1st Timothy 4:1-4 “Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” “Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron.” “Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God has created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe the truth.” “For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it is received with thanksgiving.”- We are most certainly in the last days.

5/16/14: Matthew 19:20-24 “The young man said to Him, ‘All these things I have done from my youth on: what do I still lack?'” “Jesus said to him, ‘If you will be perfect, go and sell what you have, and give it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven, and then you can come follow Me.'” “But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.” “Then Jesus said His disciples, ‘Truly I say to you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.” “And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”- This set of verses are brought up nonstop by nonbelieving socialists to marginilize Christians to make them look selfish because they don’t want, nor believe in social justice. Well, here’s something for my nonbelieving socialist lecturers: there was a rich man named Joseph of Arimathaea who was a student of Jesus’ (Matthew 27:57). Obviously Jesus didn’t require the same of him, and more than likely he was more rich than that youth. Jesus knew of men’s hearts, so He picked up on the dedication that existed in Joseph of Arimathaea that did not exist in the youth. That’s the only explanation. Checkmate.

5/18/14: 1st Chronicles 2:55 “And the families of the scribes which dwelt in Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and the Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.”- This is when Kenites began to be scribes.

5/19/14: John 7:33-34 “Then Jesus said to them (Pharisees), ‘I am with you yet a little while, and then I go to Him that sent Me.'” “You shall seek Me, but not find Me; and where I am, you cannot go.”

5/20/27: Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.”- God will always provide for His own.

5/21/14: Matthew 13:54-57 “And when He went to His own land, He taught then in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, ‘From where did this man get this wisdom, and these mighty works?'” “Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?” “And His sisters, are they not all here with us? From where then has this man all these abilities?” “And they were offended by Him. But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honor, except in his own land, or his own house.”- They gave Jesus an attentive ear, and knew He had a wisdom beyond theirs. They were amazed at Him, that is until they recognized Him. Because their hearts were hardened, Jesus didn’t perform anymore works to heal there. A heads-up to all the elect out there, more than likely your family won’t accept what you are either, so keep silent among them as long as possible. If Jesus’ home land wouldn’t accept Him when He never sinned, how much less will those accept you while knowing your sins?

5/22/14: Exodus 32:26 “Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, ‘Who is on the Lord’s side? Let him come to me.’ And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves to him.”- This was after they witnessed the ten plagues upon Egypt, and after the division of the Red Sea, and then still made themselves a golden calf saying “This is the god that brought us out of Egypt.” This choice will once again be brought onto this creation. The sheep know the voice of the Shepherd.

5/23/14: Romans 11:1 “I say then, has God cast away His people? God forbid. FOR I ALSO AM AN ISRAELITE, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.”- Yet another verse for Jew-haters who think the tribe of Judah is the only one that God likes.

5/24/14: Jeremiah 31:1 “At the same time, says the Lord, I will be the God OF ALL THE FAMILIES OF ISRAEL, and they shall be My people.”- This is another promise of Israel’s, not just the tribe of Judah’s restoration by the Lord God.

5/25/14: Job 42:7 “And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, ‘My wrath is kindled against you, and against your two friends. For you have not spoken rightly of Me, as My servant Job has.'” “Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer yourselves up a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you. From him I will accept, unless I deal with you after your foolishness, in that you have not spoken of Me what is correct, like My servant Job has.”- One better not speak wrongly from God’s point of view. If you don’t know things for sure, say “I think”, or “I believe”. Job’s friends accused Job, and were jealous of his wealth. Eliphaz even accused Job of the same things socialists accuse wealthy people of nowadays, even if they are righteous. Read Job 22 and you will see the connection is undeniable, yet God called Job the most righteous man on earth. What would socialists say of Job today?

5/26/14: Luke 4:4 “And Jesus answered him (Satan), saying, ‘It is written, ‘That man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY word of God.””- The God of the Old Testament is the same God who offered up His only begotten Son to be a sacrifice for us. His laws in the Old Testament still stand.

5/30/14: Luke 18:10-14 “Two men went up to the Temple to pray; one a Pharisee, and the other a tax collector.” “The Pharisee stood and prayed this by himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.'” “I fast twice a week, and I give tithes of all that I possess.” “And the publican, standing far away, would not lift up so much as his eyes to heaven, but hit his chest, saying, ‘God be merciful to me, a sinner.'” “I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other. For everyone that exalts himself shall be abased, and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.”

From now on, it’s going to be “VERSE OF THE WEEK”, unless there is something I should share at a particular time.

5/31/14: John 19:11 “And Jesus answered (Pilate), ‘You could have no power at all over Me, except it was given to you from above. Therefore he that delivered Me to you has the greater sin.'”- Jesus spoke there of Caiaphas

6/6/14: Matthew 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall turn cold.”- This was Jesus speaking of the last days.

6/13/14: Psalm 81:11-12 “But My people would not listen to My voice, and Israel would not obey Me.” “So I gave them up into their own hearts’ lust, and they walked in their own ways.”- Paul made reference to this in Romans 1:28-32.

6/20/14: Psalm 111:10 “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: they all have a good understanding that do His commandments. His praise endures forever.”- Unless you have a fear and reverence for God, you cannot be wise in His eyes. That fear is the first wrung.

6/27/14: Jeremiah 51:1 “This says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will rise up against Babylon, and against those that dwell in the midst of them that rise against Me, a destructive wind:”- This prophecy against Babylon, starting from chapter 50, is also written in Revelation 18. Read Revelation 18, then put it with these two chapters of Jeremiah for clarity.

7/4/14: Proverbs 10:4 “He becomes poor that works with a slow hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.”- This proverb from Solomon speaks to the benefit of personal responsibility. This is spoken throughout the Bible. As I have shown earlier in this post, if a man does not provide for himself, then do not give him anything. If a man does not provide for his family, then he is worse than a nonbeliever.

7/11/14: Proverbs 17:15 “He that justifies the wicked, and he that condemns the righteous, they both are an abomination to the Lord.”- You don’t need too keen of an eye to notice this damnable proverb being committed everyday by marxist politicians and mainstream media pundits, as well as pop culture in totality. Who are the evil ones to these people? The righteous. The more righteous they are, the more evil they are portrayed. Wait until the elect are unveiled… what will be said of them?

7/18/14: Isaiah 3:12 “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. Oh my people, those which guide you cause you to err, and confuse the way of your paths.”- Just as it was true in Isaiah’s day, so it is today. The lines “children are their oppressors” and “women are their rulers” simply meant things were upside down.

7/25/14: Isaiah 14:12-15 “How are you fallen from heaven, O Helel, son of the morning! How are you cut down to the ground, which weakened the nations!” “For you have said in your heart, ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will also sit upon the mountain of the congregation, on the north side.'” “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. I will be like the Most High.” “Yet you shall be brought down to Hell, to the sides of the pit.”- The word “Lucifer” in the KJV was the Latin translation of Helel. Helel means “brightness, lightbearer”. Lucifer was also the Latin word for the morning star. Many mistake this prophecy as a taunt to a former king of Babylon, but it’s about the future king of Babylon, Satan, who used to be known as Helel. This is how Helel fell and became Satan. He tried to become God.

8/1/14: Genesis 41:55-57 “And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharoah for bread; and Pharoah said to all the Egyptians, ‘Go to Joseph. What he says to you, do.'” “And the famine was over all the *face of the earth*. And Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold to the Egyptians, and the famine became sore in the land of Egypt.” “And *all countries* came into Egypt to Joseph to buy corn, because the famine was so sore in all lands.”- Where the asterisks are located are things to clarify, and then once clarified, use as an example with the story of the flood. The word “earth” to Moses simply meant land, because he knew not any other planets. When we hear “earth”, we think of the planet because we are aware of other planets. The flood during Noah’s day did not cover the planet, but the land. The original Hebrew word was “erets”, which means “land”, “ground”, “firmament”. The word “earth” in verse 56 was “erets”, but the word “countries” in verse 57 was also “erets” in the original Hebrew. This shows further the possibility of “erets” only meaning land in the story of the flood. At this time, there were people in China and Japan. This was after God divided the people. People in China would not travel to Egypt for food, even if they heard they had food, nor could Egypt sustain the whole planet. In the case with Joseph and the famine, the word “erets” clearly could not mean the planet earth. The flood covered the whole land. Noah gathered two of each unclean, seven pairs of clean flesh in the land and put them on the ark. This answers questions.

8/8/14: Isaiah 41:8-12 “But you, Israel, are My servant; Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham, My friend.” “You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called you from the leading men thereof, and said to you, ‘You are My servant; I have chosen you and not cast you away.'” “Fear not, for I am with you: be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yeah, I will help you. Yeah, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.” “Behold, all they which were angry against you shall be ashamed and confounded. They shall be as nothing, and they that strive against you will perish.” “You shall look for them, but not find them, even those that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing, and as a thing disappeared.”- No interpretation or additional thoughts needed.

8/15/14: Isaiah 53:1-12 “Who has believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” “For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground. He has no lovely outline, nor comeliness, and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we may desire Him.” “He is despised and rejected of men: a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from Him: He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.” “Surely, He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” “BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES: THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.” “*All us sheep have gone away: everyone of us have turned to his own way*: and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of all.” “He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth. He is brought as a sheep for the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opens not His mouth.” “He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare His period of time? For He was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people He was stricken.” “And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death, because He had done no violence, neither was there deceit in His mouth.” “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him: He has put Him to grief. When you shall make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see his seed, He shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hands.” “He shall see the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied. **’By His knowledge shall My righteous Servant make many innocent, for He shall bear their iniquities.**'” “Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong in spirit, because He has poured out His soul onto death: and He was counted along with the transgressors, and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”- I have updated the language and translated it properly. The single asterisks signify the prophecy of the disciples fleeing Jesus as He was captured. The double asterisks signify a quote from God the KJV did not give Him credit for. Was the Messiah Isaiah’s servant, or God’s? The next verse continued His words, so could Isaiah divide the Messiah a portion with the great? For atheists and believers of other religions, who could this be about, considering this was written about 700BC?

8/22/14: Malachi 4:5-6 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” “And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, for fear I come and smite the earth with a curse.”- Elijah will be one of the two witnesses in Revelation, with the other probably being Enoch. The two witnesses will humble men and make them like children, at least those who have a chance of salvation. Those who would rather instead be offended at what they will say, their chances won’t be so good. The two witnesses and the rest of the elect have already been judged, so this age isn’t about them, no matter how much the media will try to. This is about you. Be humbled, or be offended. One leads you to the road of salvation, while the other leads you to weeping and gnashing of teeth.

8/29/14: Jeremiah 16:14-15 “Therefore, behold, the days come , says the Lord, that it shall no more be said, ‘The Lord lives, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;'” “But (instead), ‘The Lord lives, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from the lands where he had driven them’; and I will bring them again into their land that I gave to their fathers.”- More proof that the Israelites would be given their land back. This is also written in Jeremiah 23:7-8.

9/5/14: Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”- The thousand years happen right after Christ returns, which is the next age. Christians are being beheaded, and will be beheaded by those who believe killing people of other faiths is doing God’s service. The Quran says in the last days, infidels will be beheaded unless they convert. The older by centuries book of Revelation says in the last days believers in Christ will be beheaded. It is a blind hatred that will allow one to believe that killing to spread the faith is something God would want done, but these are people who are fulfilling the very Word they hate.

9/12/14: Exodus 19:3-8 “And Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him out of the mountain, saying, ‘This you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel:'” “You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bared you onto eagle’s wings, and brought you to Myself.” “Now therefore, if you will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then you shall be a unique treasure to Me above all (other) people: for all the earth is Mine:” “And you shall be a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.” “And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the Lord commanded him.” “And all the people answered together, and said, ‘All that the Lord has spoken we will do.’ And Moses returned the words of the people to the Lord.”- But they didn’t. Right after this, Moses went up Mount Sinai and was gone for forty days. After all the things they witnessed, it took less than forty days for them to make a golden calf and claim this thing which didn’t exist until they made it brought them out of Egypt. Likewise, when the mystery of God is finished, all the people will give glory to God (Rev. 10:7, 11:13), but won’t last either. If you don’t humble yourself before Him, what wisdom you might gain will fade quickly when trouble comes.

9/19/14: Ezekiel 37:11-13 “Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say ‘Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.”” “Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘This says the Lord God: ‘Behold, oh My people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.”” “And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves.”

9/26/14: Ezekiel 36:24-28 “For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.” “Then I will sprinkle cleansing water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols I will cleanse you.” “A new heart I will also give you, and a new spirit I will put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your body, and I will give you a heart of flesh.” “And I will put My spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them.” “And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be My people, and I will be your God.”

10/3/14: Psalm 22:18 “They part My garments among them, and cast lots upon My vesture.” -Yet another verse from this psalm written 1000BC about the Christ’s crucifixion that no atheist can explain away. No denomination teaches the Christ saying on the cross, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” was Him referring to Psalm 22.

10/10/14: Proverbs 26:24-26 “He that hates disguises it with his lips, and lays up deceit within him.” “When he speaks kindly, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart.” “Whose hatred is covered by deceit, but his wickedness shall be revealed to the whole congregation.” -Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. The minute you hear someone telling you that you deserve this and that, he is a mouthpiece for Satan.

I also want to wish our Lord Jesus Christ a happy birthday. Given what was written in the scriptures, He was probably born during the harvest moon, and not anywhere near Christmas. Happy birthday, Lord.

10/17/14: Exodus 20:19-20 “And they (the Israelites) to Moses, ‘Speak to us and we will hear, but let not God speak to us, because we will die.'” “Amd Moses said to the people, ‘Fear not, for God has come to prove you, and that His fear may be before your faces, so you do not sin.'” -This is after God was speaking to them about the commandments and His voice shook the ground greatly. When He will say to the two witnesses who lie dead in the streets “Come up here”, the world will hear. Another thing to point out is that God will now and then put great fear into those whom He loves and will depend on the most using varying methods, and this doesn’t only go for the elect. Only difference between the elect and those God simply has a job for is that He will not give up on the elect. If people refuse to hear Him, it is the elect He will force to listen to Him, as the book of Jonah shows.

10/24/14: Micah 7:8-10 “Rejoice not against me, oh my enemy: when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light to me.” “I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my cause and executes judgment for me: He will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold His righteousness.” “Then she that is my enemy will see it, and shame shall cover her which said to me, ‘Where is the Lord your God?’ My eyes shall behold her: at that moment she shall be trodden down as the mire of the streets.”

10/31/14: Romans 2:11-16 “For there is no respect of persons with God.” “For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the Law shall be judged by the Law;” “(For nor the listeners of the Law are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified.” “For when the Gentiles, which have not the Law, do by nature the things contained in the Law, these people having not the Law are a law unto themselves:” “Which show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts either accusing or else excusing oneself.)” “In the day when God shall judge the secret things of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.” -These verses are some of the most important in the Bible. What Paul was saying was that not everyone knew of the laws of Moses given by God, and therefore didn’t know his God, who is the one true God. Jesus said that there were two great laws contained in the Ten Commandments. The first, to love God with all your heart and soul with all of your might. The second, to love your neighbor as you love yourself. The Gentiles who did not know of the one true God were unaware of the first great law, but God has written in the hearts of all men the second great law. Only by wickedness does a person hate his neighbor to deceive, rob, or kill them. Some people learn wickedness, and some have wickedness they bring with them. They were not judged by the first law, but judged by the second. All men, knowing God or not, are judged at least partly by the second.

November 7, 2014: Matthew 16:24-28 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If any man wants to follow Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.'” “For whosoever will save his own life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose it for My sake shall find it.” “For what has a man profited if he shall gain the whole age and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He shall reward everyone according to their works.” “Truly I say to you, there are some standing here which shall not taste of death until they see the Son of man coming with His kingdom.” -Jesus said that if someone wants to follow Him truly, then they must forsake their wants and be ready to suffer for Him, just as He suffered for us, yet without sin. No one else can make that claim. Jesus was also making reference of the latter days, saying those who look to save their lives shall lose them. He was referring to the hour of temptation, which is the period of time between the end of the mystery of God (Rev. 10:7) and His return. All will know during those five months who God and His Messiah really are, but Satan and his angels will torment them greatly. While Satan and his angels are not allowed to kill men, they can have others do it for them. People who are weak or have not prepared themselves in His ways might look to save their lives, but doing so would guarantee them of losing their souls.

November 14, 2014: Mark 7:14-23 “And when He called all the people to Him, He said ‘Hearken to Me everyone of you, and understand:'” “There is nothing from outside the man that enters into him that can defile him, but the things which come out of the man that defiles the man.” “If any man has ears to hear, let him hear.” “And when He went into the house from the people, His disciples asked Him about the parable.” “Are you also without understanding? Do you not perceive that whatsoever thing from outside when it enters into him cannot defile him:” “Because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly and goes out into the draught, purging all meats? (Thus He made all meats clean)” “And He said, ‘That which comes out of the man, that defiles the man.” “For from within, out of the heart of men proceeds evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,” “Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:” “All these evil things comes from within and defiles the man.”

11/21/14: John 7:6-8 “Then Jesus said to them (disciples), ‘My time is not yet come, but your time is always ready.'” “The world cannot hate uou, but Me it hates, because I testify of it, that their works are evil.” “Go up to the feast. I will not go up to this feast yet, for My time has not yet fully come.”- When the powers of this world hate you for your devotion to Christ, they really show their hatred for Him because He leads you away from Satan’s grasp. Satan’s helpers will try to turn you into the hateful ones, void of compassion and good will. Do not fret when those who are evil define you as evil. Relish it.

11/28/14: Luke 15:4-7 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and goes after that which is lost, until he finds it?” “And when he finds it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.” “And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.'” “I say to you likewise, joy shall come to heaven over one sinner that repents than the ninety-nine just people, which need no repentance.”- Jesus said this, which shows conclusively that not everything is predetermined.

12/5/14: John 15:18-21 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.” “If you were of the world, the world would love his own. But because you are not of this world, but I have chosen you out from the world, therefore the world hates you.” “Remember the word I said to you, ‘The servant is not greater than his lord.’ If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they have kept My words, they will keep yours also.” “But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him that sent Me.”- Buckle up, my fellow faithful. It’s near.

12/12/14: Two different sets of verses. Acts 14:15-17 (After the Greek Gentile converts made sacrifices for Paul and Barnabas, thinking they were the gods of Jupiter and Mercury) “And saying, ‘Sirs, why do you do these things? We are also men like you, and preach to you that you should turn from these vain things and to the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things therein.'” “Who a time ago allowed all nations to walk in their own ways.” “Nevertheless, He never left Himself without a witness, in that He did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.” Genesis 4:26 “And to Seth, to him also there was born a son, and he called his name Enos. Then men began calling upon the name of the Lord.”- At the time in Genesis, all men of all nations knew the Lord, but they turned away from Him. He then chose the forefathers of the nation of Israel to bear witness of Him until it was time for Him to turn to the Gentiles.

12/19/14: Acts 26:30-32 “And when he (Paul) had thus spoken, the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them.” “And when they were gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, ‘This man did nothing worthy of death or of imprisonment.'” “Then said Agrippa to Festus, ‘This man might have been set free if he had not appealed to Caesar.'” -Paul was doing the Lord’s will, because Christ appeared to him and said he must carry the message of Him being the Christ to Rome. After great turmoil to Christians, namely Peter and Paul himself, Emperor Constantine would one day name Christianity as the official religion of Rome. Paul was imprisoned for two years, shipwrecked on Malta on the way, with threats of death throughout to do our Lord’s will. Pay respect to Paul and the suffering he endured during, before, and after his imprisonment for spreading the Word.

12/26/14: 1st Corinthians 1:18-21 “For the preaching of the cross is undiscernable to those who are perishing, but to us which are saved it is the power of God.” “For it is written, ‘I will destroy the knowledge of the educated, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the intellectual.'” “Where is the educated? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the accepted knowledge of this world?” “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom did not know God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those that believe.”- Since Satan is the ruler of this age, and in this age in particular, the fools are seen as the smart and caring ones while those who will be proven right are accepted as fools or haters.

1/2/15: Jeremiah 16:14-15 “Therefore, ‘behold, the days are coming’, says the Lord, ‘that it not be said no more, ‘The Lord lives, that brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt:”” “But, ‘The Lord lives, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ And I will bring them again into their land that I gave to their fathers.”- Just today, Palestinians submitted documents to the UN to their International Court so they would be able to bring Israelis as war criminals. This will open the door for the world to come against them.

1/9/15: 2nd Corinthians 4:3-4 “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost…” “in whom the god of this age has darkened the minds of them which do not believe, for fear that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine upon them.”- Satan is the god of this age. Those who repel the gospel of Christ, especially those in the last days, do so because Satan has them, whether they believe that or not. Atheists who believe it is silly that there is a God, or that He would send His Son to die for our sins, are among the most susceptible to falling for the false one when he is revealed.

1/16/15: Deuteronomy 32:43 “Rejoice, oh you nations, with His people: for He will avenge the blood of His servants, and will render vengeance to His adversaries, and will be merciful to His land and to His people.”- This is the last verse of the Song of Moses, which all will sing at the end.

1/23/15: Daniel 2:40-42 “And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks into pieces and subdues all things; and as iron that breaks all these, it shall break in pieces and bruise.” “And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potter’s clay, and partly iron, the kingdom shall be divided, but there shall be in it the strength of iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.” “And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.” -This is Daniel interpreting a vision of King Nebuchadnezzer of Babylon. The fourth kingdom to take over Israel was the Roman Empire. This kingdom was also the fourth beast in Belshazzar’s dream in Daniel chapter seven. It would break up for a period of time, but reform. The reformation is described in chapter seven. The Antichrist must come from the eleventh nation of this reformation, so it can’t be President Obama, even if he wishes it could be.

1/30/15: 1st Samuel 8:6-7 “But the thing displeased the Samuel, when they said “Give us a king to judge us like all the other nations have.” “And the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Hearken to the words of the people in all that they said to you: for it is not you they rejected, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.”- God did not create man to be ruled over by other men, nor man to rule over men. The godless who have a god complex will play on moral issues that are close to their lips, but far away from their hearts. Their only desire is to be gods, doing their god’s will.

2/6/15: Daniel 12:1-4 “And at that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince which stands for the children of your people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation throughout: and at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone that that shall be found in the Book.” “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” “And those that have wisdom shall shine as the brightness of the sky; and those that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.” “But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased.”- This “Michael” is Jesus Christ. Michael in Hebrew means “who is like God”. Knowledge has definitely been increased, but we are on the doorstep of the great awakening.

2/13/15: Enoch 1:1 “The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked and godless are to be removed.”

2/20/15: 1st Peter 4:12-14 “Beloved, do not think it out of place for you comcerning the tough trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you (like God wouldn’t bring this upon you).” “But rejoice, inasmuch as you are partakers of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy.” “If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you will be happy; for the spirit of glory and God rests upon you. From their view, He is spoken of as evil, but on your part He is glorified.” -I had it revealed to me not long ago that even though He made me suffer, He has done miraculous things to soon give to me that I couldn’t imagine Him doing for me. Even though it was far from my sight, He had been doing things for me behind the curtain. After fasting for forty days, He had revealed much to me. There was nothing we could change. A year after I started that fast, He revealed to me things that brought tears to my eyes. I couldn’t imagine He loved me this much. More importantly, I couldn’t imagine He loved us that much. Try not to focus on the surface of anything, but look to the possibilities of what could be beneath. With dedication to His ways, He just might reveal what He’s been doing with you all along. Give Him the benefit of the doubt. Of all the things He is about to do for me out of only love, I am not the only one He loves. He loves you, too.

2/27/15: Titus 1:15-16 “Unto the pure all things are pure, but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure, but their mind and conscience is defiled.” “They profess that they know God, but in their works they deny Him, being abominable, and disobedient, have rejected to do any good work.”- Hear and let this guide you to understand who is doing what and why.

3/6/15: Proverbs 26:4-5 “If you answer a foolish question, you are just as foolish as the one who asked it.” “Instead give an answer that mocks the question and the one who asked the question will realize that he’s not as smart as he thinks he is (hopefully).”

3/13/15: Deuteronomy 4:30-31 “When you are in tribulation, and all these things come upon you, EVEN in the latter days, if you turn to the Lord your God, and shall be obedient to His voice;” “(For the Lord your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them,”- God brings afflictions many times on those He loves, and especially those whom He has a need for, to humble that person in hopes they will turn to Him with a contrite heart. As is written in the Old Testament many times, God brought afflictions to Israel in hopes they will remember Him and the sins they committed against Him and repent. Sometimes even great afflictions do not come from a source of His anger, but to make that person ready to handle the task He has reserved for them. Do not react in anger at Him over these afflictions. Instead bow down and thank Him for caring enough to afflict you. If He did not love you, He would not pay you any attention.

3/20/15: Revelation 12:1-6 “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars;” “And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and in pain with delivery.” “And there appeared another wonder in heaven: behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” “And his tail drew the third part of stars, and did cast them to the earth; and the dragon stood in front of the woman which was ready to deliver to devour the child as soon as it was born.” “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God, and to His throne.” “And the woman fled to the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her twelve hundred sixty days.”- The woman is Israel, the crown of twelve stars representing the twelve tribes. Jesus was the child and Satan is this dragon, as verse 9 says conclusively. This whole chapter is very important to learn and understand, because this gives the dividing line: are you with God or Satan? The woman is clearly the land of Israel because she goes to the wilderness, which is stated countless times in the Old Testament as the land of Israel (away from the coast).

With everything that is going on and the talk against Israel, while using Netanyahu and the Likud as an excuse, people need to wake up to what is truly going on. Foolish conservatives believe Obama is wanting to make a deal, no matter how bad, with Iran for his political legacy. It’s amazing how everything they see has a political bent to it. Progressives continue to be reeled in like a marlin to a place they could never foresee themselves going just a short time beforehand. They are the people in 1920s Germany who have their hatreds, but could never foresee themselves being for what they would soon be for against the Jews.

Obama is serving his master, and he doesn’t even know exactly why he’s doing what he’s doing. It just feels right to him. There’s a plan, but when it comes down to it, he’s being led to serve Satan. There’s just something about those marxists and Jews. There were no Netanyahus or Likuds in Europe decades ago, yet marxists tried to eradicate them. Marxists today are going in the same direction as they did back before WWII. The humanitarian cause will be for the Palestinians. As Revelation states, the evil world will come against Israel, more than once, in fact. They won’t be telling eachother, while fulfilling the very Word the deny, “Let’s commit evil!” In their eyes they will be doing good by invading Israel. So what would be their moral cause? The plight of the Palestinian. All of them, at least those in power, will serve their master because they have no place in the Book of Life. It is unavoidable. They have to serve Satan, but thinking they have the moral superiority to commit evil works.

Marxism is Satan’s politics and Islam is his religion. Both are global movements and were spread by the sword from their beginnings. No matter the obvious hypocrisies, they both have the same lord- the god of hypocrisy.

For those that believe the land of Israel is this evil incarnation, whether it be Kenites or Edomites, there is no prediction in the Bible of a false establishment of Israel. For those that contended with me, saying the UN and Obama are in cahoots with this evil land of Israel- DUH. If you are against the land of Israel, you align yourself with Satan. There is no way to square that circle.

3/27/15: Isaiah 18:1-3 “Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:” “that sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of wood of reeds upon the waters, saying, ‘Go, you swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people fearful from their beginning to now; a nation divided and trodden down, whose land was spoiled by the river.” “All you inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, look, when he puts a sign in the mountains; and when he blows a trumpet, listen.”- The United States is the land shadowing with wings that is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, which at the time extended all the way to the west coast of Africa. America put a sign in the mountains with Mount Rushmore, and the world was told when the sign is put up to pay attention to that nation. Mount Rushmore was finished in 1941, the year we entered WWII. As a matter of fact, it was just a couple of months later. Babylon was the other land spoken of. They were the people fearful from their beginning. Babylon, which is in modern day Iraq, is a very divided nation. With everything that is going on, with ISIS and Iran, America’s woe will come soon. Just for more background, VP Biden proposed years ago to divide Iraq into three separate nations. This could be why the ambassadors will be sent.

4/3/15: Blessings to you on this Good Friday, commemorating the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. Please keep fully the gravity of His sacrifice and the pain and humiliation He went through for us. Luke 22:36-38 “Then He said to them, ‘But now, he that has a money purse, let him take it, and likewise his paper; and he that has no sword, let him sell his clothes and buy one.'” “For I say to you, that this it is written must yet to be accomplished in Me, ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors: for the things concerning Me have come to an end.'” “And they said, ‘Lord, look, here are two swords.’ And He said to them, ‘It is enough.'”- In the early morning hours of the day Jesus gave us His life, many people take a verse He says later on in the gospels out of context: Peter attacked one of the guards that came to take Jesus away, and Jesus said for him to put the sword away, saying, “He that lives by the sword dies by the sword.” Anti-gun zealots love pointing out that verse while completely ignoring it was Jesus who told them to bring the swords in the first place. Given He told the disciples to bring the swords, what He told Peter needs some context. Jesus said “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword” was a warning to Peter alone. Jesus didn’t want Peter to try to save Him, which is why He reminded Peter that He could call on angels to save Him if He wanted out of dying. If Peter stood and fought, he would have been killed, too. He would have died by the sword. Jesus had big plans for Peter, above all His disciples, because it was Peter Jesus’ church would be built upon. Jesus wanted His disciples to bring swords so they could flee and stay alive to spread the Gospel. In John 18:8-9, Jesus told the high priest’s servants to let the disciples go, and that it was Him that they seek. Also in verse nine, a prophecy is quoted of the Christ, “Of them which You gave Me, I have lost none.”

4/10/15: Revelation 17:8 “The beast you saw was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”- This was an angel speaking to John the Apostle. The Book of Life has been put together before this age started, and there are many alive who are not in the book, meaning they have no chance for salvation. Our creation’s souls are much older than our bodies, so the sins committed by those omitted from the book were unforgiveable . The beast John saw was the Antichrist, who will die, but be revived. He “was and is not” because he will die, and he “yet is” because he will be revived. Those who are not in the book will have their messiah.

4/17/15: Matthew 24:13 “Therefore I speak to them in parables: because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.” -This was Jesus speaking to His disciples about why He spoke to believers in parables. This was due to the spirit of slumber given to everyone but the elect (Romans 11:7-8). There are varying degrees of slumber. Many do not understand now really anything that is written. Many will never understand because they are not in the Book of Life comprised before this age began. When you hear fools, such as Penn Gillette, say that you can’t actually read the Bible and believe, just think maybe he isn’t allowed to believe. Maybe one day he will, but the hardness of his heart keeps him from understanding the most basic of things, or believe prophecies written that cannot be contradicted. In this world he is thought of as a genius, but he does not even have the first part of wisdom. He cannot understand things God has revealed to us simpletons.

4/24/15: Hebrews 11:1-6 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” “For by it the elders obtained a good report.” “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” “By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts, and by it he was dead yet spoke.” “By faith Enoch was translated so he would not see death, and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” “But without faith it is impossible to fully please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is God, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

5/1/15: 2nd Timothy 4:6-8 “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.” “I have fought the good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith.” “Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me on that day, and not to me only, but to all them that also love His coming.”

5/8/15: Matthew 24:40-41 “Then two shall be in the field; one shall be taken and the other left.” “Two women shall be grinding at the mill; one shall be taken and the other left.”- This has nothing to do with the rapture, but instead who will fail. One will be fooled by Satan and the other, at least ultimately, not.

5/15/15: Deuteronomy 14:26 “And you shall bestow upon yourself whatever you can buy which your soul desires for, for oxen, for sheep, for wine, for strong drink, or whatsoever your soul desires: and you shall eat there before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household.”- Again, drinking alcohol is lawful. Being a drunkard is not.

5/22/15: Deuteronomy 16:19 “You shall not fight with judgment; you shall not respect persons, neither take a bribe: for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise, and perverts the words of the righteous.”- It shouldn’t be difficult to simply make good judgment to bring about fair and righteous justice for all, but we cannot even do such a simple thing as this. How we can possibly benefit ourselves or our friends (which truly benefits us in a round about way – payback) is what interests this creation most far too often. A pathetic trait.

5/26/15: Luke 21:36 “Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and stand before the Son of man.” -Jesus said this, not alluding to the rapture. He said “escape these things”, not “escape this time”. The original Greek word for “escape” really meant “flee”. Add this with Revelation 10:7, which says only after the sounding of the last trump will the mystery of God be finished. If before anything happens millions of Christians suddenly vanish, what mystery would be left? Jesus, the Son of man will come here, and those who are worthy will be able to stand before Him.

5/27/15: 2nd Thes. 3:10 “While we were with you, we commanded you, ‘Whosoever does not work, neither shall he eat.'”

5/28/15: Matthew 15:7-9 “You hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophecy of you, saying,” “This people draws close to Me with their mouths, and honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.” “But in vain do worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”

5/29/15: Matthew 19:17 “And He said to him, ‘Why do you call Me good? There is none good but One (God). But if you will enter into (everlasting) life, keep the commandments.'”- You are good, too, Lord Yeshua.

5/31/15: 1st Samuel 8:7 “And the Lord said to him, ‘Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you: for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.'”- God said this to the prophet Samuel after the Israelites cried to have a king over them like other nations. God did not intend for men to rule over Israel.

6/1/15: Matthew 23:32-33 “Fill up then the measure of your fathers.” “You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?”- Jesus said this of the scribes and Pharisees. The Greek word for “generation” really meant “descendant”. Some of these scribes were Kenites, as Numbers 2:55 states, but that isn’t the takeaway here. It is not because they were Kenites that they couldn’t escape the damnation of hell, but because they were not in the Book of Life which was put together at the foundation of this world. Those who are not in the book cannot escape damnation due to their villainous past.

6/2/15: Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God must believe that He is (God), and that He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him.”- This verse has been misunderstood by many who quote it, believing one must be a Christian to go to heaven. The word “please” wasn’t fully translated accurately. The original Greek word meant “please completely” or fully. Such people do not consider Romans 2:12-15, which clearly stated those who were ignorant of the laws and religion given by Moses were judged for the one law written into the hearts of all people, Jew and Gentile alike, which was to love your neighbor as you love yourself. There is everlasting life, which is different from heaven. As Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not.” Weigh everlasting life and heaven shall pass away. The two are not congruent. One must go through Christ to have everlasting life, and that is the real goal.

6/3/15: Enoch 10:8 “And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel (the angel): to him ascribe all sin.”- This was done by the release of the scapegoat written in Leviticus 16:20-22. The Hebrew word for scapegoat is “azazel”. I wrote about this recently.

6/4/15: Matthew 5:3-11 “Blessed are the poor who have spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.” “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” “Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they shall be filled.” “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall receive mercy.” “Blessed are the pure in spirit: for they shall see God.” “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” “Blessed are you, when men shall persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake.”- Brilliant beginning to the greatest speech ever given- the sermon on the mount.

6/5/15: Luke 23:28-31 “But Jesus turning to them said, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for Me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.'” “For, behold, the days are coming, in which they shall say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never give suck.'” “Then they shall begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us’, and to the hills, ‘Cover us’.” “For if they do these things in a gree tree, what shall be done in the dry?”- Jesus said this to the women as He was on the cross. There could be a time when children are targeted for murder to lower the number of Jews. Jesus also alluded to this as He spoke of the signs of the end of the age, saying, “But woe to them that are with child and give suck in those days.” The green tree and dry tree Jesus spoke of was time. Even though the Jews lived under Roman oppression, it was not the tribulation period. The dry tree is the period of tribulation.

6/6/15: Matthew 20:25-28 “But Jesus called them to Him, and said, ‘You know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.'” “But it shall not be so among you, but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister.” “And whosoever shall be chief among you, let him be your minister.” “Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”- The greatest servant with the most authority will serve the others.

6/7/15: John 9:2-5 “And His disciples asked Him, saying, ‘Master, who sinned, this man, or his parents, since he was born blind?'” “Jesus answered, ‘Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.'” “I must do the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work.” “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”- The disciples asked Jesus this of the blind man because God said in the Old Testament that He will visit the iniquities of the sinner on him and on up to the fourth generations. The day Jesus referred to was the time when the Holy Spirit would be evident, through Him and later the disciples when they became apostles. The night is the time when the works of the Holy Spirit has wrought would be over.

6/8/15: Matthew 13:57 “And they were offended in Him. But Jesus said, ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his own land or in his own house.'”

6/9/15: Matthew 8:8-10 “The centurion answered and said, ‘Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof: but say the word only, and my servant shall be healed.'” “For I am a man with authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this one, ‘Go’, and he goes; and to another, ‘Come’, and he comes, and to my servant, ‘Do this’, and he does it.” “When Jesus heard that, He marvelled, and said to them that followed, ‘Truly I say to you, I have not found so much faith, no, not in Israel.'”

6/10/15: Revelation 22:18-19 “For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book; if any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book;” “And if any man shall take away the words from this book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the (good) things which are written in this book.”

6/11/15: Matthew 15:11-14 “Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man, but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” “Then came His disciples and said to Him, ‘You know the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?'” “But He answered and said, ‘Every plant which your heavenly Father has not planted, shall be rooted up.'” “Leave them be. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into the ditch.”

6/12/15: Acts 7:59-60 “And they stoned Stephen, who called upon God, saying, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.'” “And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice, ‘Lord, do not lay this sin against their charge.’ And when he said that, he fell asleep.”- Stephen’s last words, who was the first Christian martyr. These words showed an incredible soul that would not want his death to be on their charge, and most certainly helped Paul, who consented to this stoning. Paul was one of the elect for sure, and did more to spread the Gospel to the Gentiles than anybody, but he was guilty of helping kill Christians. Perhaps with Stephen saying this, he was one Paul didn’t have to answer for. May God bless both of them even more. Both should be admired greatly.

6/13/15: Judges 3:7-9 “And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and forgot the Lord their God, and served Baalim and the groves.” “Therefore the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and He gave them into the hand of Chushan-rish-a-thaim, king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Chushan-rish-a-thaim eight years.” “And when the children of Israel cried to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even with Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother.”

6/14/15: Judges 3:12-15 “And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord again, and the Lord strengthened Eglon, the king of Moab, against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the Lord.” “And He gathered to Him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the land of the palm trees.” “So the children of Israel served Eglon, the king of Moab, for eighteen years.” “But when the children of Israel cried to the Lord, the Lord raised them up a deliverer, Ehud, the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a left-handed man; and by him the children of Israel sent him a gift to Eglon, king of Moab.”- The gift was a dagger that Ehud would use to kill Eglon while he was alone in his summer parlor, right in the belly where refuse came out. He could not pull the dagger out of himself.

6/15/15: Judges 10:6-14 “And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim and Ashteroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the Lord, and didn’t serve Him.” “And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and He sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon.” “And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side of the Jordan (river) in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.” “Moreover the children of Ammon passed over the Jordan to fight also against Judah, and against Benjamin, and against Ephraim; so that Israel was sorely distressed.” “And the children of Israel cried to the Lord, saying, ‘We have sinned against You, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim (plural for Baal).” “And the Lord said to the children of Israel, ‘Did I not deliver from the hands of the Egyptians, and from the Amorites, from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines?'” “The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites did oppress you, and you cried to Me and I delivered you out of their hand.” “Yet you have forsaken Me and served other gods, therefore, I will deliver you no more.” “Go and cry to the gods which you yave chosen. Let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.”- After a while, after Israel had completely removed all evidence of the Baals, the Lord did turn back to them, but you will see that this won’t be the last time that Israel would reject their God.

6/16/15: Judges 13:1 “And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord delivered them into the hands of the Philistines (Palestinians) for forty years.”- There’s a point to all of the scripture of where it says Israel did evil in the eyes of the Lord, which I will get to at the end of these scriptures. This time, God sent Samson to deliver Israel.

6/17/15: 1st Kings 14:22-24 “And Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked Him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done.” “For they also built for them high places, images, and groves on every high hill, and under every green tree.” “And there were also sodomites in the land. And they committed all the abominations that the nations did, whom God had cast out from the children of Israel.”- This is after Judah was separated from the other tribes, but before the northern tribes went into captivity. The term “sodomite” could mean one of two things: one was a male prostitute, and the other meant an idolator. Paul spoke about how God gave Israel a rejected spirit after they turned away from God, which made them go further into sinful behavior, including sexual (Romans 1:28-32). We are experiencing this now.

6/18/15: 1st Kings 15:25-26 “And Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa, king of Judah, and reigned over Israel for two years.” “And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his son wherewith he made Israel to sin.”

6/19/15: 1st Kings 15:33-34 “In the third year of Asa king of Judah Baasha the son of Ahijah began to reign over all Israel in Tirzah twenty-four years.” “And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.”

6/20/15: 2nd Kings 16:1-3 “In the seventeenth year of Pekah, the son of Remaliah, Ahaz, the son of Jotham, king of Judah began to reign.” “Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and didn’t do what was right in the sight of the Lord his God, unlike David his forefather.” “But instead he walked in tbe way of the kings of Israel, yeah, and made his son pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord cast out from before the children of Israel.”- Passing through the fire wasn’t just walking through fire, but being sacrificed in the fire. Israel, and even the tribe of Judah committed great evil against God and their own children.

6/21/15: Matthew 6:9-13 “Our Father, which is in heaven, hallowed be Your name.” “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” “Give us this day our daily bread.” “And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.”- Happy Father’s Day, Lord Yahweh!

6/22/15: 2nd Kings 17:13-18 “Yet the Lord testified against Israel and against Judah by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, ‘Turn away from your evil ways, and keep My commandments and My statutes, according to all the law I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by My servants, the prophets.'” “Notwithstanding, they would not listen, but instead stiffened their necks, like the how their fathers did who did not believe in the Lord their God.” “And they rejected His statutes, and His covenant that He made with their fathers, and His testimonies which He testified against them: and they followed vanity and became vain, and turned like the heathen that were around them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them.” “And they left all the commandments of the Lord their God, and made themselves molten images, specifically two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven (outside of God), and served Baal.” “And they caused their sons and daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and gave themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.” “Therefore the Lord was very angry at Israel, and removed them from His sight. There was none left but the tribe of Judah only.”

6/23/15: 2nd Kings 22:1-2 “Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.” “And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of his forefather David, and turned not to the right or to the left.”- Josiah did his best to undo the sins of Judah, forbidding to have the Judeans sacrifice their children to !olech. He even reinstituted the rules of the Passover. He should be honored.

6/24/15: 2nd Kings 23:31-32 “Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned for three months in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Hamutal, the daughter of Heremiah of Libnah.” “And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his fathers have done.”- Most of the kings helped Israel and Judah commit evil.

6/25/15: Jeremiah 32:37-40 “Behold I will gather them out of all the countries where I have driven them in My anger, and in My fury, and in great wrath, and I will bring them again to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely.” “And they shall be My people, and I will ge their God.” “And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may revere Me forever, for their own good, and for their children after them.” “And I will make an everlasting cocenant with them, that I will never turn away from them, for their good: but I will put My fear in their hearts that they shall not depart from Me.”-More verses about God’s forgiveness to Israel coming.

6/26/15: Hosea 6:1-2 “Come, let us return to the Lord: for He has torn us apart, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will gather us up.” “After two days He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight.”- And He did, for a day to our Lord is a thousand years to us. He fulfilled this after twenty-five hundred years when Israel once again became a nation.

6/27/15: Hoeea 14:4-9 “I will heal their backsliding. I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from him.” “I will be as the dew to Israel. He shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as in Lebanon.” “His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall ve as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.” “They that dwell under his shadow shall return. They shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine. The scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.” “Ephraim shall say, ‘What have I to do with idols?’ I have heard him and observed him . I am like a green fir tree. From Me is your fruit found.” “Who is wise and understand these things? Prudent, and shall know them? For the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them, but the transgressors shall fall therein.”- After all Israel had done, time and time again, God remembered His promise to them. He afflicted them to bring them back to Him, and so shall He do it again. He is about to affkict us greatly. Will we return to our Father humbly, or will we further walk into wickedness? For those of us who stay or return to Him, He will remember His promises, no matter how impossible it may look.

6/28/15: Malachi 1:6 “A son honors his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is My honor? And if I be a master, where is My reverence? says the Lord of hosts to you priests that despise My name. And you say ‘Where have we despised Your name?'”- He went on to say through His prophet Malachi that they offerered disrespectful sacrifices and committed evil doing so.

6/29/15: Zechariah 9:6-7 “And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines (Palestinians).” “And I will take away his blood out from his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: but he that remains, even he, shall be for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judea and Ekron as a Jebusite.”

6/30/15: Amos 1:6-8 “This says the Lord, ‘For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof, because they carried away the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom:'” “But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:” “And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holds the sceptre in Ashkelon, and I will turn My hand against Ekron, and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish’, says the Lord.”- The Philistines are Palestinians. This is a prophesy, as was Zechariah’s the day before, about the Lord being against the Palestinian. Pope Francis and his Catholic Church are recognizing Palestine, completely going against scripture. Does the Bible say anything about supporting enemies of Israel? Does the Bible say anything about dividing the land of Israel after its reformation? Perhaps the pope needs a Bible lesson, if he is even able to comprehend it. We are entering the dark days I’ve been warning about, even within the world of Christianity. Perhaps we are seeing the False Prophet, or at least his predecessor.

7/1/15: Acts 3:25-26 “You are the children of the prophets, abd of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.'” “Unto you first God, having raised up His Son Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning every one of you away from his iniquities.”-I wanted to acknowledge Nicholas Winton who recently died. He saved hundreds of Jewish children in Prague, and was nicknamed the British Schindler. He should be honored by for what he did. He was 106. May God bless him and his family.

7/2/15: Acts 5:38-39 “And now I say to you, refrain from (harming) these men, and leave them alone. For if their counsel or works be of men, it will eventually come to nothing.” “But if it is from God, you cannot overthrow it, for fear you are found to have fought against God.”- A Pharisee named Gamaliel offering the one bit of wisdom among the council who were trying some of the apostles.

7/3/15: Luke 11:23 “He that is not with Me is against Me, and he that doesn’t gather with Me scatters.”

7/4/15: Matthew 18:7 “Woe to this age because of violent offenses! It is inevitable that violent offenses will come, but woe to that man who commits them!”

7/5/15: Revelation 19:9-16 “And he said to me, ‘Write: ‘Blessed are they which are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ ‘ And he said to me, ‘These are the true sayings of God.'” “And I fell at his feet to worship him, and he said to me, ‘See that you do mot worship me, for I am your fellowservant, and of your brothers that have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.'” “And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse: and He that sat on him was called Faithful and True, and righteousness does He judge and make war.” “His eyes were a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns, and He had a name written that no man knew, except He Himself.” “And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and His title is The Word of God.” “And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.” “And out of His mouth came a sharp sword that with it He should smite the nations, and He shall rule them with a rod of iron, and He treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of the Almighty God.” “And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, King of kings and Lord of Lords.”- The Bible has the word “name” in place of title, but I changed it because it is written earlier that the name on Jesus was not known by man. In Hebrew, “Word of God” is Debar Yahweh. That is a name known by some men, so that will not be the name He will be known by. A name can be a title and a title a name. In John’s gospel, the very first verse said “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” He was referencing Jesus as the Word, as he made clear in Revelation.

7/6/15: Matthew 15:22-28 “And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried to Him, saying, ‘Have mercy on me, oh Lord, You son of David, my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.'” “But He answered her with not a word, and His disciples came and besought Him, saying, ‘Send her away because she cries to us.'” “But He answered and said, ‘I am not sent but to the lost children of Israel.'” “Then she came and worshipped Him, saying, ‘Lord help me.'” “But He answered and said ‘It is not right to take the children’s bread and cast it to dogs.'” “And she said, ‘True, Lord, yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.'” “Then Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Oh woman, great is your faith, be it to you as you will.’ And her daughter was made whole from that very time.”- Jesus wasn’t comparing her to a dog, he was just saying He was there to help the children of Israel. He knew that His apostles would spread the message to the Gentiles. Instead of being insulted and lashing out, her humility allowed her wisdom to shine through, so she was awarded for her faith. That is the lesson here.

7/8/15: Leviticus 18:26 “You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, neither any of your nation, nor any stranger that sojourns among you.”- Many times in Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, God told the Israelites that the Gentiles who lived among them had to abide by the same laws as they do, many of which the punishments thereof was death. People from other nations must abide by the laws of the nation they are in, legally or illegally, within reason of course. Being a Christian in a land where it is illegal does not fall under this. Being in a country illegally does. In an age where terrorism is far too common and the economy is in tatters, illegal immigration is a problem, and don’t believe the arguments given by advocates for illegal immigration. They have a different agenda than merely helping poor people. Illegal immigration hurts the poor in America and helps the wealthy that they posture so visibly against.

7/9/15: 2nd Samuel 6:20-23 “Then David returned to bless his household, and Michal, the daughter of Saul (David’s first wife), came out to meet David, and said, ‘How glorious was the king of Israel today, who uncovered himself today in the eyes of the handmaids of the servants, as one of the common fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!'” “And David said to Michal, ‘It was before of the Lord, which chose me over your father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel, therefore I will play before the Lord:'” “And I will be more vile than this, and will be humble in my own eyes. And of the maidservants which you spoke of, of them I shall be honored.” “Therefore Michal, the daughter of Saul, had no child unto the day of her death.”- This was after David was dancing for and celebrating the Lord, which Michal thought was below the king to do. David cut her to the quick with his reply and had children with other women. David wanted to stay humble, since he saw himself as a servant of the Lord.

7/10/15: Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bare a son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”- Immanuel means “God with us”. Some may point out that the word “virgin” didn’t necessarily mean a real virgin, but instead a young woman, since the Hebrew word many times did simply refer to a young woman, but this is foolish. Something more intellectuals who either don’t believe or truly believe come up with to make themselves out to be more educated than their Christian enemies. How would it be a sign if merely a young woman gave birth? “Wow, a young woman gave birth! It must be the Christ!” That isn’t a sign since it happens every few seconds. As with nearly everything the educated come up with to marginilize the Word, their brilliance only takes them to the conclusion they want to reach. They cannot see past their noses. Is that a difficult question to ask? Would a young woman giving birth qualify as a sign that the Christ is born? Stupid me asked.

7/11/15: Daniel 7:23-25 “Thus he said, ‘The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon (this) land, which shall be different from all prior kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.'” “And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall rise, and another shall rise after them, and he shall be different from the first ones, and he shall subdue three kings.” “And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall mentally grieve the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws. And they shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half of a time.”- Many times in the Old Testament, if not most, the word “earth” simply meant land, which is why the first time it showed up I had it say “land”. The second time “earth” appeared, it really meant the whole planet since Revelation said all countries will be subdued by the Antichrist. This kingdom was the Roman Empire, which Daniel said prior, would break away for some time but reform. The European Union is probably this reformation. The eleventh nation described was Spain, so the Antichrist would be from Spain. The amount of time described is three and a half years. A time is a year, and times is two years, just like it is written in Revelation.

7/12/15: Revelation 13:17-18 “And no man can buy or sell, except he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” “Here is wisdom: let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.”- Some might say that the Antichrist would not have men have a mark in their foreheads or hand, saying this really meant figuratively. While it is true that phrase was used in the Old Testament in a figurative way, there has to be some way of identifying someone in order that they be allowed to buy, sell, or trade. The number of his name is simple once God opens eyes: six letters in his first, middle, and last names.

7/13/14: Luke 9:23 “And He said to them all, ‘If any man will follow Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.'”- Jesus meant that a man has to deny his personal pursuits and wants and keep himself pure at all times to truly follow Him.

7/14/15: Revelation 13:3-4 “And I saw one of his heads like it was wounded to death, and his deadly wound was healed, and all the world wondered after the beast.” “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”- As 12:9 says, Satan is the dragon. The beast is the Antichrist human being.

7/15/15: Revelation 17:8 “The beast that you saw was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and those that dwell on the earth shall marvel, whose names were not written in the Book of Life at the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet will be.”- The first point for this verse I want to make continues from yesterday’s verse. The Antichrist will die and be revived, unlike those who say the beast is some nation or group of nations, and today’s verse proves that. The Antichrist was, and is not because he will die, and yet will be because he will be revived by the dragon. Those whose names aren’t in the Book will follow him once he is revived, even if they did not beforehand and are avid atheists. They can’t help but serve him. For more on that, read my post “They Will Serve Their Master”.

7/16/15: Acts 4:13 “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and had perceived them to be unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled, and then received information that they had been with Jesus.”- This council of high priests, scribes, and elders were snobby know-it-alls who upon appearance thought that two prophets of the Lord could not be as smart as they are, since they were the typical servants of Satan, despite their religious stature. It will be a great thing to exploit, the feeding of perception by the satanic personal genius club, if you use their ego against them.

7/17/15: Matthew 7:1-2 “Judge not, that you be judged.” “For with what judgment you judge, so shall you be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured back to you.”- Despite many saying that Jesus said for us not to judge one another, that isn’t what He said. What He was clearly saying, which the much-ignored second verse testifies to, is if we judge against someone’s known sins while we also are sinful, then we will get the same treatment from our Father. If someone sins greatly, or is a compulsive sinner, then we better make judgments. Common sense dictates this. How many times did Paul say to castigate, and even expel believers who commit great sins? Paul and the apostles were angry at the church in Corinth for not expelling a man who slept with his father’s wife. Did Paul make a judgment?

7/18/15: Matthew 14:34-35 “Salt is beneficial, but if the salt has lost its savor, what will be seasoned with it?” “It is neither fit for the land, nor even for the dunghill, but men cast it out. He that has ears, let him hear.”- If one has a purpose from God, but they do not fulfill it, then they will be discarded, and God will give that purpose to someone else. This does not include the elect, as the stories of Jonah and Paul show. They refused to answer their Him, but He did not turn from them.

7/19/15: Psalm 23:1-4 “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.” “He makes me to lie down in green pastures: He leads me beside the still waters.” “He restores my soul: He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.” “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”- Beautiful words from the most well known psalm verses. They are a beacon to the psalm before it, being it is the most important chapter for building faith in all of the Bible.

7/20/15: Matthew 15:10-11 “And He called the multitude, and said to them, ‘Listen and understand,'” “It’s not that which goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”- Sage words from the Sage of our creation.

7/21/15: Ephesians 2:4-6 “But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us.” “Even when we were dead in sins, has enlivened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved)” “And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”

7/22/15: 1st Thessalonians 2:13 “For this cause also we thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you received it not as the word from men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually works also in you that believe.”

7/23/15: Mark 6:10-11 “And He said to them, ‘In whatever place you go, and enter a house, abide there until you leave that place.'” “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when you leave then, shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them. Truly I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that city.”- Advice for the elect who live today as well.

7/24/15: Luke 21:27-28 “And then they shall see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption draws close.”

7/25/15: Acts 9:23-24 “And after many days had passed, the Jews took counsel to kill Him.” “But their lying in wait was known by Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.”- I will highlight verses to show of Paul’s suffering. I will explain why I am doing this at the end of them. All should honor and bless Paul.

7/26/15: Acts 16:22-24 “And the multitude rose up together against them (Paul was among them), and the magistrates tore off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.” “And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they threw them in prison, charging the jailor to keep them safe.” “Who, having received such a charge, put them into the inner prison, and fastened their feet in the stocks.”

7/27/15: Acts 21:30-31 “And all the city was moved, and people ran together, and they took Paul, and took him out of the temple, and forthwith shut the doors.” “And as they were about to kill him, news came to the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar.”

7/28/15: Acts 23:1-2 “And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, ‘Men and brothers, I have lived in all good conscience before the Lord.'” “And the high priest Ananias commanded those that stood by him to hit him in the mouth.”

7/29/15: Acts 23:11-12 “And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, ‘Be of good cheer, Paul: for as you have testified of Me in Jerusalem, so shall you also bear witness in Rome.'” “And when it was day, certain Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat or drink until they have killed Paul.”

7/30/15: Acts 26:31-32 “And when they had gone aside, they talked privately, saying, ‘This man did nothing worthy of death or of imprisonment.'” “Then said Agrippa to Festus, ‘This man might have been set free if he had not appealed to Caesar.'”- But Paul did appeal to Caesar because he had to fulfill the word of the Lord, to testify of Him in Rome. For two years Paul awaited in prison before he was sent to Rome to help spread the Word to the Gentile world.

7/31/15: Acts 27:42-43 “And the soldiers counsel was to kill the prisoners, for fear any of them should swim away and escape.” “But the centurion, wanting to save Paul, kept them from doing so, and commanded those who could swim to jump first into the sea and get to land.”- This is the shipwreck at Melita, which is now known as Malta. After two years of being imprisoned, awaiting to testify of the Lord in Rome, he is involved in a shipwreck on the way. He, as well as the rest on the ship, fasted for fourteen days because they had to lighten the load to save the ship. They had a very limited amount of food afterwards. After they made it to land, a poisonous snake bit Paul.
8/1/15: 2nd Corinthians 11:23-28 “Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labors more abundant, in stripes too numerous to count, in prisons more frequent (than they), with death often nearby.” “From the Jews I received forty stripes five times, except one.” “Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have been in the deep.” “In many journeys, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils of the sea, in perils among false (Christian) brothers.” “In weariness and painfulness, in hunger and thirst, in many fasts, in cold and nakedness.” “Beside those things that are without, that which comes upon me daily, the care of all the churches.”- Why I have brought these verses to light is to make sure all know of Paul’s suffering for spreading the Gospel. Paul was also beheaded. I have heard way too many so-called believers speak ill of Paul while if there was no Paul, there would be no Word given to the Gentiles. For this purpose he lived and suffered. Where would we be as Christians without Paul? Where would almost half of the New Testament come from? These people who speak ill of Paul draw my ire because I know they couldn’t last a week in his shoes, let alone a lifetime. And he suffered so these morons could have the Word!

There will be a time very soon where nonbelievers and so-called believers will attempt to remove Paul’s words from Jesus Christ. It has already started to a point, but it will get much worse. It was Paul Jesus appeared to twice, according to the scriptures, and not to the fools. Paul’s words are Jesus’ words because Jesus sent him. You cannot as a believer separate God’s prophets from the God who sent them. Keep the words of the prophets with you in your heart always. God sent them to be His mouthpiece. To ignore or castigate their words is an insult, not only to them, but to the God that sent them. May the Lord bless you all the more, my brother Paul and all of the prophets God sent.

8/2/15: Exodus 20:17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”- This, the tenth commandment, is a rule that dispels socialism as any worthy endeavour. You do not deserve what belongs to your neighbor. Anyone that tells you otherwise is selling you into wickedness. Sewing the seeds of discontent will never bring peace or justice. It will only bring about evil.

8/3/15: Ecclesiastes 1:9 “The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done shall be done again, and there is no new thing under the sun.”- That includes us and what Satan will do. It also includes people who bring about their own doom by listening to satanic sellers of entitlement, just like what happened a century ago.

8/4/15: Revelation 6:5-6 “And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, ‘Come and see’, and I looked, and there was a black horse, and he that sat upon him had a pair of balances in his hand.” “And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, ‘A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny, and see that you do not hurt the oil and the wine.”- A penny was what the payment was for a working man’s daily wage. A measure would make a small loaf, so this plague will be a plague of great inflation. It would take a working man’s daily wage to buy a loaf of wheat bread, or three loaves of barley bread. The not hurting of the oil and the wine had nothing to do with actual oil or wine. Why would they not feel the effects? This was about the elect during the last days. Oil is used for anointing, religiously speaking, and wine is fermented, purified grape juice. He was saying to not hurt the anointed and the pure. This means in a variety of ways, but contextually this pertains to the cost of things. Tomorrow’s verse will confirm this is about the elect.

8/5/15: Psalm 105:15 “Saying, ‘Touch not Mine anointed, and do My prophets no harm.”- It’s a matching verse to Revelation 6:5-6. This verse was about the prophets of the last days because the prophets from past generations were greatly harmed, even murdered.

8/6/15: Proverbs 4:8-9 “Exalt her (wisdom) , and she will promote you: she will bring you honor when you embrace her.” “She shall give your head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory she shall give to you.”

8/7/15: Hosea 14:4-5 “I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely; for My anger is turned away from him.” “I will be as a dew to Israel; he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots in Lebanon.”

8/8/15: Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder.”- This is the true translation, not “you shall not kill”. How does one ignore all of the wars God told Israel to fight, as so many do?

8/9/15: Exodus 20:4-5 “You shall not make to yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” “You shall not bow yourselves to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the father upon the children up to the third and fourth generation of those that hate Me.” “And showing showing mercy to thousands of those that love Me, and keep My commandments.”

8/10/15: Exodus 20:7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vanity: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that takes His name in vanity.”- When you use “God” or “Jesus Christ”, you should be talking to them or about them. For those who use “Well God isn’t His name” as a loophole, name can be a title. When you say “God”, you are drawing His ears. Don’t blaspheme His name, nor say His name for no reason.

8/11/15: Psams 1:1-2 “Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.” “But his delight is in the Law of the Lord, and in His law he does meditate day and night.”

8/12/15: 1st Corinthians 9:1 “Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord?”- The great apostle Paul

8/13/15: Romans 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

8/14/15: Job 1:6-7 “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves to the Lord, and Satan also came with them.” “And the Lord said to Satan, ‘Where did you come from?’ Then Satan answered the Lord, saying, ‘From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.'”- If Satan was imprisoned in the earth already, then God wouldn’t have had to ask him where he was. Until Michael and his angels kick Satan and his angels down onto earth, he will be free to roam pretty much where he wants. Dante was wrong.

8/15/15: Ephesians 2:14 “For He is our peace, who has made both (Jew and Gentile) one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition that was between us.”

8/16/15: 1st Thessalonians 5:4-6 “But you, brothers, are not in the darkness, that that day should overtake you like a thief.” “You are all the children of light, and children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.” “Therefore let us not sleep, as do others: but let us watch and keep sober.”

8/17/15: Ruth 2:11 “And Boaz answered and said to her, ‘It has been fully shown to me all that you have done for your mother in law since the death of your husband: and how you have left your father and your mother, and the land of your nativity, and have come to a people which you knew not until now.'”- Doing good works gets around. Ruth was a Moabite, but was worthy of Boaz, of the line of Christ.

8/18/15: Luke 12:51 “You suppose that I have come to give peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather (bring) division.”- Jesus said this becaise He is a sword that divides. Despite flaky believers and nonbelievers who think Jesus was all about inclusion, like rampant sinners are fine with Him, Jesus is the Son of the same God written of in the Old Testament. Which God sent Jesus? Isn’t it possible that the same loving God that sent Jesus to die for our sins is the same God who was very strict in the Old Testament?

8/19/15: Malachi 3:5 “And I will come near to you for judgment, and I will be a swift witnesses against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against the false swearers, and against those that oppress the worker in his wages, and the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and do not fear Me, says the Lord of hosts.”

8/20/15: Exodus 20:14 “You shall not commit adultery.”- Hear that, customers of Ashley Madison?

8/21/15: Luke 14:26-27 “If any man comes to Me, and loves less his father, mother, wife, children, brothers, sisters, and yes his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.” “And whosoever does not bear his cross and follow Me, he cannot be My disciple.”- The original Greek word there for “hate” in verse 26 can also mean “love less”. Obviously He would not want people to hate their family, not to mention it would completely contradict other things He has said. This was a poor translation the KJV did.

8/22/15: 1st Thessalonians 5:21 “Test all things to see if they’re right; hold fast to that which is good.”

8/23/15: 1st Corinthians 10:16-17 “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?” “For we being many are one bread and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.”

8/24/15: Acts 1:7-8 “And He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father has put in His own power.'” “But you shall receive power after the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the earth.”

8/26/15: John 6:27 “Labor not for the food which perishes, but for that food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give to you: for him has God the Father sealed.”

8/27/15: 1st Thessalonians 3:17 “And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.”

8/28/15: 1st Thessalonians 5:14-18 “Now we exhort you, brothers, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.” “See that none render evil for evil to any man, but forever follow that which is good, both among eachother and to all men.” “Rejoice evermore.” “Pray without ceasing.” “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

8/29/15: 1st Corinthians 4:18-19 “Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.” “But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills it, and will know, not the words by those who are puffed up, but by the power.”- By “puffed up” meant people who thought they were Christian authorities thinking they can have their own version because they didn’t know Paul or another apostle would come to put them in their places.

8/30/15: Daniel 12:9-10 “And he said, ‘Go your way, Daniel, for words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.'” “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tested, but the wicked shall do wickedly, and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.”- Early in this post, I highlighted verses that brought up this point- that the wicked will not be able to understand the simplest doctrines or scriptures. Many claim to be much smarter than their Christian foes, but easy scriptures to understand, especially those edifying the authentication that it is God’s word, they aren’t allowed to understand. The sheep know the voice of the shepherd, but the wolf runs from it.

8/31/15: Luke 22:22 “And truly the Son of man goes as it was determined, but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!”- Jesus said this angrily of Judas because Judas witnessed great things, even had the Spirit come upon him to heal, but he rejected his Lord. I doubt there was any coming back for Judas, but who knows?

9/1/15: Matthew 12:5-8 “Or have you not read in the Law, that how on the sabbath days the priests in the Temple profane the sabbath, but are blameless.” “But I say to you, that in this place is one greater than the Temple.” “But if you had known what this means, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless.” “For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.”

9/2/15: Luke 17:3 “Take heed to yourselves: if your brother trespasses against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, you shall forgive him.”- Jesus, despite misguided individuals who say otherwise, said this because He didn’t want people to be weak in the face of those who sin against them. Jesus said to rebuke those who wrong you, not to just take it, thinking it’s Christian to let it pass. Maybe the trespasser truly is ignorant of his sin, so he should know, hopefully to ask forgiveness. If he repents, forgive him. If he is unrepentant, you owe him nothing. How can one be forgiven if they do not feel they have done wrong?

9/3/15: Matthew 23:11 “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.”- Yes, Lord.

9/5/15: Matthew 5:10-12 “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” “Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake.” “Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven: for they also persecuted the prophets which came before you.”- I chose these verses for the sake of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis. She was jailed for exercising her Christian beliefs by not giving her signature to homosexual marriage licenses. God’s law always supercedes man’s law, not to mention there were ways around Davis not endorsing gay marriage without jailing her, but this is what certain people want. Do not think that they aren’t going to eventually do this to pastors and so forth for not marrying homosexuals. Too many people are already for shutting down businesses who do not wish to participate in homosexual weddings and receptions, so this satanic government feels emboldened. God is ready to judge this nation. All should pray for Kim Davis and bless her.

9/6/15: Acts 5:29 “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, ‘We ought to obey God rather than men.'”- Saw a protestor at a rally for Davis holding up a sign with this verse. Good suggestion.

9/7/15: Luke 4:17-21 “And there was given to Him the book of Isaiah the prophet. And when He opened the book, He found the place where it is written…” “The spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are bruised.” “To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” “And He closed the book, and He gave it back to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all of them that were in the synagogue were fastened to Him.” “And He began to say to them, ‘This day this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.'”

9/8/15: Luke 17:29-30 “But the same day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone out of heaven, and destroyed them all.” “Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

9/9/15: Nehemiah 2:19-20 “But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, ‘what is this thing you are doing? Will you rebel against the king?'” “Then I answered them, and said to them, ‘The God of heaven, He will make us prosper; therefore, we, His servants, will arise and build, but you have no portion, nor right, nor memorial in Jerusalem.'”- Remember this verse for the satanic Muslims and marxists who will try to eradicate Israel.

9/10/15: 2nd Chronicles 36:15-16 “And the Lord God of their fathers sent them messengers continuously because He had compassion on His people, and on His dwelling place.” “But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised His words, and misused His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose against His people, until there was no remedy.”- The whole world is about to do it again.

9/11/15: Zechariah 14:2 “For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken, and the houses will be rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city will go forth into captivity, and the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.”

9/12/15: 1st Thessalonians 1:5-6 “For our gospel came not only to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much assurance, as you know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.” “And you became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy in the Holy Spirit.”

9/13/15: Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All power is given to Me in heaven and on earth.'” “Go, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” “Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.”

9/14/15: Genesis 2:5-7 “And every plant of the field before it was on the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.” “But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the earth.” “And the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.”- These verses are cited by those who believe Adam was formed on the so-called eighth day, but clearly verse five was going back to the third day of creation. The reason why there was no man to till the ground was because there was no man, period. If I am wrong, then why didn’t other men have the ability to do a simple job, which is tilling the ground? What would have prevented them?

9/15/15: John 9:1-5 “And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth.” “And His disciples asked Him, saying, ‘Master, who sinned, this man or his parents, since he was born blind?'” “Jesus answered, ‘Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents, but so the works of God should be made manifest in him.'” “I must do the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day. The night is coming when no man can work.” “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of this world.”- The disciples knew of the previous age, so this is more proof that not only was there a previous age, but that the sins then affect us today. Read closely their question. How can he sin in this life, where the consequences would be blindness, when he had been blind from birth? They asked of the blind man’s parents, because they knew of the scripture that God puts the consequences of sin onto that person, and all the way up to the fourth generation of those who hate Him. His answer is also telling, because it was neither that man or his parents who brought the blindnesd upon him. Lesson: when you see someone who has been afflicted with disease, disability, or hard times, don’t assume anything.

9/16/15: Esther 3:8-9 “And Haman said to the King Ahasuerus, ‘There is a certain people scattered abroad (Jews) and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of your kingdom; and their laws are different from all other people; neither do they keep the king’s laws, therefore it is not for the king’s benefit to help them.'” “If it pleases the king, let it be written that they be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have charge over the business, to bring it to the treasuries.”- The king gave Haman permission. Haman was a child of Satan, trying to eradicate the Jews so the Christ would not be born to die for our sins. Through God, Queen Esther and her uncle Mordecai put a plan in place that turned the tables on Haman, and the other enemies of the Jews who were dispersed throughout the kingdom. On a certain day, it was supposed to be the start where the Jews were to be made extinct, but instead on that day, the Jews were allowed to kill their enemies so they can continue existing. This was God’s will. Haman, the enemy of the Jews, was hanged on the fifty cubit-high gallows that he made for Mordecai. Mordecai became second only to the king. He made it a statute that the Jews should annually celebrate the fourteenth and fifteenth days of Adar for God’s intervention, allowing them to survive. That holiday is called Purim. This is also a lesson for the future. Whatever God allows Israel to do in order to survive, you better be behind them or you will be opposite God.

9/17/15: Job 1:13-19 “And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house:” “And there came a messenger to Job, and said, ‘The oxen were plowing and the asses eating beside them:” “And the Sabeans came upon them, and took then away; yea, and they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone escaped to tell you.'” “While he was still speaking, there came another, and said, ‘The fire of God has fallen from heaven, and has burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them, and only I have escaped to tell you.'” “While he was still speaking, there came another, and said, ‘The Chaldeans were in three bands, and came upon the camels and have carried them away, yeah, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword, and only I have escaped to tell you.'” “While he was still speaking, there came another, and said, ‘Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house:” “And behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and hit the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead, and I alone have escaped to tell you.'”- Just because a great calamity comes upon a person, don’t assume that it’s God punishing that person.

9/18/15: Matthew 10:5-7 “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, ‘Go not where the Gentiles are, and into any of the cities of the Samaritans enter not.” “But instead go to the lost children of Israel.” “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.””- The reason Jesus told the disciples not to preach where the Gentiles are is because it wasn’t time for them, yet. After He died, it would be time to teach the Gentiles, with Paul doing a majority of that work.

9/19/15: Matthew 12:43 “When the unclean spirit comes out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, but finds none.”

9/20/15: 1st Thessalonians 3:20-21 “Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord.” “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, for fear they get discouraged.”

9/23/15: Leviticus 16:29-31 “And this shall be a statute forever to you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own countrymen, or a stranger that sojourns with you:” “For on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before the Lord.” “It shall be a sabbath of rest to you, and you shall afflict your souls, by a statute forever.”- Happy Yom Kippur to my Jewish brothers and sisters. This should be a day for Christians also.

THE DEFINITIVE WORK ON KENITES, CAIN, AND THE SEED OF SATAN

As many of you know, I have written a lot about Kenites. As all do, I come to learn new things as time passes and I have learned more about Kenites in time. I have had a viewer who opened my eyes on something, which I will expand on here. I have some very smart and wise viewers, I tell ya. This post will be the most definitive writing on Kenites you will find on the web, and I will guarantee that. There will be both things prior touched on and things new here.

In Genesis, Eve was beguiled by the serpent, Satan (Revelation 12:9, 20:2). God told Satan that his seed and the woman’s seed would have enmity toward eachother, saying “he shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel”. In Genesis 4:1, Eve gives birth to Cain, saying “I have gotten a man from the Lord”. As I have stated, Satan was told of his child, but Eve was not. Plus, only God can create a soul. No matter how you put it, God gave her a child with Cain. In verse 2, a viewer pointed out the original Hebrew word for “again” really meant “continued”. Eve continued to give birth and had Abel. As I had contended previously when answering viewer’s questions, Eve must have had twins. The original Hebrew corroborates this. Obviously the serpent fathered only one. God said so. Next we see in the story that God was not happy with Cain’s offering, but after Cain’s countenance fell God told him he would be accepted if he did well. This is something too often ignored by people who have studied the ‘Kenite doctrine’. Cain had the chance to do good because Cain’s soul was created by God, not Satan. Further proving Cain was the child of Satan and Eve is Cain fulfilling the prophecy God gave to Satan. Cain killed Abel because he was tormented (he shall bruise your head) by the good works of his brother (and you shall bruise his heel). The heel being part of the foot means action-work. Cain was then banished and married a woman in the land of Nod, east of Eden.

In Genesis 15:19, God promises Abraham lands that belonged to other nations including the Kenites. In the original Hebrew, Kenites are directly tied to Cain which I will get to later.

Moses was also banished, but from Egypt and wound up in Midian. He wound up marrying Zipporah, a Kenite daughter of a Midianite priest named Jethro (was also known as Hobab). Now to much contention, I said that indeed Moses’ father in law (also wife) were Kenites by blood. Many said that he was only a Kenite because of the area he lived in, since Kenites did live in Midian, but that didn’t make sense. He was a Midianite because of the area he lived in. In Numbers and Judges, the original Hebrew points out conclusively that Moses’ father in law was a Kenite by blood and that Kenites were direct descendants of Cain. These two examples should read as follows:

Numbers 24:21:22  ” And he looked on the Kenites and took up his parable, and said ‘Strong is your dwellingplace and you put your nest in a rock. (22) Nevertheless, the *Cain* shall be wasted until Asshur shall carry you away captive.'”

Judges 4:11. “Now Heber the *Cain*, which was of the children of Hobab the father in law of Moses, had severed himself from the Kenites, and pitched his tent unto the plain of Zaanaim, which is by Kedesh.”

Judges 1:16 also points out that Moses’ father in law was a Kenite by blood. Those two verses above, there were mistranslated words and both showed the Kenites came from Cain. Since the Kenites came from Cain and have been around throughout the time before Abraham to now, they had to have survived the flood. Remember, Noah was told to gather two of every kind in the *land* on the ark (two unclean, fourteen clean). “Land” was the rightful meaning for the word “earth”. Read my post “How Did Noah Fit All The Animals On The Ark” for a new, but conclusive take on what was on the ark.

The Kenites from this point on became part of Israel, although not Israelite by flesh and blood. They became part of Israel’s culture and had important roles in the land. In 1st Chronicles 2:55, Kenites were appointed to be scribes. This is an important position to give those that were not Israelites. Over time, Kenites who went in the way of their father became power-hungry and used their smooth-talking skills to propel themselves to power. They probably never had so much power than when the Romans took over the land of Israel, and any threat to their power structure would be dealt with harshly. In Matthew 23, Jesus scorned the scribes and Pharisees, calling them “hypocrites” time and time again. In verse 33, Jesus called them a generation of vipers. He said “You *serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?” That word “generation” in the original Greek was the word “γέννημα” (GHEN-ee-mah), which really means “offspring”. In verse 36, the word “generation” was the Greek word “γενεά” (ghen-eh-AH), which means “generation” as in a reference of time. In verse 35, Jesus said they killed the righteous Abel and the prophet Zechariah. Who killed Abel? Cain did. Whose offspring killed Zechariah? Cain’s. Whose offspring would later kill Jesus? Cain’s. In verse 15, Jesus accused them of recruiting new converts (proselytes) and “making them twice the child of hell you are”.

Now we know by the original languages that Cain fathered the Kenites and that it was their offspring Jesus was contending with and later put Him to death. The only question is whether or not Satan fathered Cain, and to me there is no question. Again the original language pointed out that Eve had twins, and we know that God told the serpent that his seed would have enmity with the woman’s seed, separating the children. We know that Cain killed Abel because he was tormented by Abel’s good works, fulfilling God’s prophecy accurately. Accepting that Satan fathered Cain, we know this prophecy continued on through Jesus’ time. Cain killed Abel, and Jesus said the scribes and Pharisees killed Abel, and called them serpents and the offspring of vipers. Is the viper a serpent? Wasn’t Satan the serpent?

Satan’s children are the Kenites, so therefore they have the same traits. They are the ones Jesus spoke of in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9, saying they were those who say they are Jews, but are not. The traits are being power-hungry, since Satan’s fall was because of his quest for power. They are great at lying, and convincing people who are lost that they have their best interests at heart, and hide their true intentions of seeking totalitarian power (the serpent was subtle and able to convince two people who actually spoke to God to disobey Him). They would also have enmity towards real Israelites, Israel, and Christians because they are God’s elect race and Christians believe in His only begotten Son.

Just because Kenites are descendants of Satan, that does not set their futures in stone. We know that Moses’ wife was a Kenite and he was a man of God. I’m sure because of this and her father being a priest that she was a righteous woman as her father was also a righteous Kenite. A Kenite woman named Jael (Yael in Hebrew) ended the battle between the coalition of Kenites and Israelites against the Canaanites by offering the Canaanite army captain safety, but instead killed him. I would say she was a Godly woman. Their souls were created by God and they were Godly.

We all have our predispositions because we are human. We all have our traits and our tendencies to sin. If a Kenite decides to be sinful, these will be their motivations. Karl Marx was one of these who thought it would be great to foment and then use the anxiety of the have-nots against the haves to force the haves to his side. His book promised visions of social justice but all he wanted was totalitarian power. He knew by getting covetous working class people to intimidate, and if necessary kill the rich, he would force the rich to come to him which would secure an oligarchy. He wasn’t able to do these things, but Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Castro, and a slew of others used his idea with great success. People really thought their marxist leaders were really interested in social justice, but got anything but. They also thought that murder could lead to harmony. Their enemies were whoever their marxist leaders said were their enemies. Inevitably they realized they were fooled, but it was too late. The rich who survived stayed rich. Their leaders could care less about social justice despite their heartfelt speeches identifying with the plight of the working class.

Now we have George Soros, a marxist who called 1944 the happiest year of his life while a member of the Judenrat where most of his fellow Hungarian Jews were killed, including neighbors and relatives. He said his mother was anti-Semitic. His father was part of a movement to make esperanto the world language. Soros said that he doesn’t identify with Jews or Israel and has talked of his “Messiah complex”. He has gone from country to country dividing people in every way possible and used the media, youth, and working class people to achieve regime change and got richer doing it. He has spoken of wanting to humble the United States because they are in the way of forming a New World Order. He makes sure to use class warfare through the media outlets he supports and his greatest disciple is Barack Obama. “… and you shall bruise his heel.”

MY FORTY DAY FAST

This is the final day of my forty day fast. Years ago when I read about Jesus, Moses, and Elijah fasting for forty days, I wondered if there was some loophole where they could eat at night or something, but I knew that couldn’t be the case. I thought it was the most incredulous thing (and it is) and there was no way I could ever do it. Years ago, I tried fasting after promising Him I would for just a few days with mostly disastrous results. I would feel the hunger, but my biggest problem was dizziness to the point of fainting. Last July I felt it in me to start fasting again and since then I have fasted pretty often. I still had problems with dizziness, but I endured because I was more determined to keep my promises. The longest I have fasted was seven days and I did it three times, twice in December before Christmas. With my health, fasting wasn’t an easy thing.

One night I had a vision where meteorites fell from heaven on a cold winter’s night. With gloves on, I picked one up and it turned into several tiny Christmas presents. This vision came to me around a couple of months before Christmas, but I knew something big was happening for Christmas. I thought it was going to be something I’d like. On Christmas day, I received the worst news I have ever had in my life. I won’t say what it was. It’s very private and the explanation of it all is beyond the ability for most to believe. I barely ate that day, even though my favorite food was there to consume- turkey and all those great fixings. Turkey, gravy, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, gravy, long grain and wild rice, mac n cheese and others. If you find it weird to have Uncle Ben’s or Zatarain’s wild rice with mashed potatoes on the same plate, try it. You won’t go back. Anyway I had a small plate, but I prayed to God, saying that I won’t be eating for a long time. My life, which has known nothing but struggle, crashed with the worst news I could have ever received. I had it in my mind and soul a calling to fast for forty days, but I wouldn’t give in. At that point though, I was content to die. I prayed for death countless times from this. On the fifth day of fasting, I had the door of enlightenment come upon me as to possibilities as to why this event happened. I also had the calling become very strong to fast for forty days. It was as strong as when He first called me to read the Bible. During a prayer, I fought the impulse to relent to this call since it was such an overwhelming task. Imagine forty days without food. The discipline it would take is incredible, and I knew I couldn’t fail Him again, so I fought it as hard as I could. On my knees I said to the Great Lord God, “okay, I will fast for forty days, but can I start when Lent comes? Is it okay if I eat now?” Immediately the Holy Spirit came to me and I rejected my own question without a breath between. Immediately I sprung up to my feet and I said “no, I won’t eat until I have finished my forty day fast for you, my Lord.”

When taking this in at that time, I knew there was a reason I had to fast for forty days and I had to do it then. I don’t know why the time must be now, but it’s clear He did not want me to wait any further. During this time I prayed constantly about needing help from Him to take on this great task. His help was not shorthanded. I had less dizziness from this fast than when on two day fasts (or on the second day of a longer fast). As I wrote in “My Fast For Him”, I have very bad health problems which include hypertension. Early in the fast, I took two or three blood pressure pills but stopped.

I had my temptations. I missed out on my birthday, not to mention Christmas leftovers, New Year’s, and yes even the Super Bowl. I fought them with discipline and His help. There is no question I felt His guidance and help throughout this whole process. I had nothing solid. I had no ice cream, shakes, soup broth, or smoothies during this period. I have kept my word and this gift is a required one for Him.

The worst news in my life on the worst day of my life was something He used. Recently, with patience He let me know that with a certain type of people, He must tear them down so He can use them how He sees fit. Since this day and age is polluted by sin so much it is an unavoidable fume, I had to really be brought down in order for Him to use me. This one thing was the one to do it. He will still keep His promise because He can never lie, but He will do everything He feels He must do to prepare His servants for their journey. There is nothing He won’t do to get His elect ready to obey Him. Just ask Jonah.

My Lord, it is an incredible honor to fast forty days for You. It’s a greater honor that You made me do it. I don’t know what tomorrow will look like, but I know big changes are on the horizon. I know difficulty will be with me for the rest of my life, but You will be with me longer, and I with You. Lord Y’shua, thank You for everything You went through for all of us, especially us. Thank You for never sinning. Thank You for enduring Your fears. Thank You for keeping silent. Thank You for every smite You took; for every bit of spittle that You let hit Your face; for every lash; for every drop of Your blood; for every hammering of those spikes; for enduring all the mockery and not getting Yourself out of it when You had the ability to. Thank You for Your life, death, and Your victory over Satan. You are most worthy to be on His right side and You are most worthy to be our Lord, forever and ever. Our Lords, we love You with all our hearts, our minds, and our souls. We need You. We glorify You. We praise You. We bless You. We serve You. We do these things and will do them far beyond the limits of our lives. You will always be our Lords and we will always be Your servants. These days and this life is for You. I now ask that You forgive our iniquities and delay us no longer. Please do not be slack, but be as the Peregrine. Be no longer silent. Tell us what we must do. Help us help You. We love You both more than we can ever say and more than our very own souls. Without You, I couldn’t have done this. Without You, I can’t do this. We are nothing without our everlasting Father and our everlasting Lord. Throughout eternity, from our lips to Your ears- WE LOVE YOU! Amen.
