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.

THE 2014 MIDTERM ELECTION

Four years ago, I wrote a post called “George Soros: Author of the Future Collapse of America” in an election climate similar to today’s. I believe I wrote it on the day of the 2010 midterms. The republicans were looking at making huge gains in the House and Senate, but I said that nothing will change, and that those who thought the GOP would save the country would be proven wrong. Today, again the GOP are looking at big gains, especially in the Senate, but what would GOP control of the Senate mean? In the mind of someone who looks at politics only… a way to send a message to the President. I even heard someone today say that if the GOP makes the predicted gains that it would force President Obama to deal and make concession with republicans, including the Keystone pipeline, and wants to secure his legacy as someone who gets things done for the good of the country. At what point in the last six years has Obama even gestured towards working with republicans? Too many people ignore that Obama is a twenty-year student of Jeremiah Wright. Too many people ignore Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father” which shows he has a very different agenda than what his foes think that he has. Too many forget his affection for Saul Alinsky, who wrote a guide book on how to divide the middle class against one another to conquer them, which is one reason why I say that in the world of a true marxist, despite their rhetoric, there can be no middle class. Obama’s history and tactics should show any analyst that politics is not his endgame. His endgame is to collapse America while blaming the wrong people so the desperate populace can be puppeteered into an uprising and then listen to his master’s solutions.

So what would this possible republican victory mean in the mind of a world government marxist revolutionary? A bigger target. With all these stories about elections and ebola, a much bigger story here in America went largely ignored, with a smile to world government marxist revolutionaries. This week, Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellin announced the Federal Reserve would stop the bond-buying. Just in time, too, with the election just days away. The reason the economy hasn’t completely tanked is because of the money the Fed has pumped into it. That is why interest rates are so low and why the stock market is so high. It was this artificial walking cane called “quantitative easing”. Now it’s over because the right enemy can get the overwhelming amount of the blame for the purposely brought collapse.

If you want to know why the left keeps talking about republicans impeaching Obama is because he plans on doing so many things that he will force the republicans to take a stand against him. This election won’t be the end of the conflict between Obama and the republicans, but I am predicting it will just be the beginning. I predict he is going to do everything he can to force republicans to try to impeach him. As far as Obama’s executive orders are concerned, I believe we haven’t seen anything yet. He is going to try to force even the most squeamish of republicans to stand up to him, and nothing is off the table to bring that about. If he can, he will make it coincide with a great crisis, which is why marxists say “never let a crisis go to waste”. The accusations of racism also have only just begun with the politicians, pundits, and mainstream media pounding the point that all opposition to Obama will be because of racism. Even though only the true sheep who play the race card really believe opposition to Obama is racist, they are simply being subversive. They are doing exactly what their martyr Alinsky taught them to do. Divide and conquer.

On the same subject, I said long ago that Obama is trying send Israel messages that they are alone in this looming conflict with Iran. I even said Obama wants Israel to attack Iran alone, but have been wanting it to come at a specific time. For those who heard about an unnamed official in the Obama administration calling Prime Minister Netanyahu a “chicken****”, because he/she claimed Netanyahu is scared of attacking Iran, and wondered why one would leak that out there, it is because the Obama administration is daring Netanyahu to attack Iran, further letting Israel know they are alone. Perhaps that will be the crisis Obama and his superiors are looking and hoping for. What would be the worldwide consequences of an attack by Israel of Iran’s nuclear facilities? Drastic. It would affect the world economically and otherwise. It might unite Sunni and Shiite terrorist groups because Israel is even a bigger enemy to them than eachother.

As I have stated many times, marxists and Muslim fundamentalists like to work together because ultimately they have the same goal: a worldwide totalitarian, oppressive government. Marxists helped during the Arab Spring revolutions, with the “Day of Rage” protests, which were infamous marxist protests many years ago. Recently, a fatah was issued calling for “a day of rage” in Jerusalem.

If you want to learn what is really going on with this country politically, and what the mainstream media is doing, then read “Rules For Radicals” by Saul Alinsky, who is an undeniable hero to today’s left. Despite the rhetoric of being for the middle class, this book shows you that they want to tear them apart and down. If you can read this book and still look at the politics of Obama, then there is nothing that can help you. Even the most brilliant political analysts are six o’clock wrong, because they only look for the political goal. Actually “Rules For Radicals” is a great litmus test for the soul. If one can read that book and find it appealing, then they are surely evil. It is no wonder Alinsky dedicated that book to Lucifer for being the first radical to carve out a kingdom for himself.

Read about the Russian Revolution with Lenin’s “useful idiots'” war against the “haves”. Lenin and his compatriots used class warfare to get the “useful idiots” to force the “haves” to align with him if they wanted to live. Read about the early twentieth century progressives and what they stood for. The ones they found repugnant and unworthy of life has not changed, but in order to control them, they must make them think they are their friends. The early twentieth century progressives were too verbose with their desires, so they had to go underground and learn different tactics on how to carry out their plans. Read of the individuals who made up the early progressive movement, such as Margaret Sanger, HG Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Teddy Roosevelt, and others. Read why terms such as “population control” turned into “birth control”, and how the NAACP was formed by mostly white eugenicist progressives. Read about the Velvet, Orange, and Rose revolutions and the tactics that were used, especially with the media using subversion to divide those nations any which way they could. When you know these things, then you can open your eyes to what is truly going on. Politics is not Soros’, Obama’s, or their partners’ goal. Politics is just the fuel to get them to their goal, which is a New World Order run by marxists who have no wish to bring about social justice anywhere.

Here is wisdom: when you hear progessive pundits, politicians, and the media talking about those they want to help, it’s those people they want to conquer. When you hear them raging against certain people and industries, those are the ones they want to sway to their side, even if they have to threaten them with their “useful idiots” first. Marxists love big business as long as they are on their side. If big business is not on their side, then eventually big business better get on their side if they know what’s good for them. The “useful idiots” will be just around the corner.

Anyone who thinks that Obama’s agenda is purely political, then have them deny President Obama is President Jeremiah Wright. Despite his promises in 2008 to “fundamentally transform this nation” to roaring applause, do they still see politics as Obama’s goal? Would President Jeremiah Wright want to secure his legacy politically by working with republicans to help this nation, or would he want to fundamentally transform this nation? All Obama has done was drop the radical pose for the radical ends.

DID MICHAEL BECOME SATAN

I got into this a bit in “Unanswered Questions…”,but thought I’d elaborate more about it. This is one of those examples where people at some point just started making things up on their own to impress themselves. I have no idea who was the first to put this forth, nor am I going to look. Whoever it was, it was probably someone with some charisma, because it did spread. Even though the Bible says the complete opposite, people really believe Satan was once known as Michael. I am astonished at how things so biblically clear can be spun to have people believe the complete opposite.

Revelation 12:7-9 “And there was (will be) 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 (from Genesis 3), called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast onto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” So let me get this straight- Satan and his angels fights against his own angels? How much more clear can it be? I guess the clarity doesn’t matter when someone is making themselves out to be an ubergenius whose thoughts about the Bible are more true than the Bible itself.

Satan’s name was Helel, which was translated into Lucifer, which is Latin. It is written in Isaiah 14. Some believe Isaiah was talking about a former king of Babylon, but that isn’t true. The Bible speaks of a future king of Babylon, who is Satan, and Isaiah was describing how he fell long ago.

I really wish people would stop making things up based on nothing written. It is even worse when people believe things that completely contrast with what is written, which I have dealt with too much here. Read and take the Word word for word. Don’t omit. Don’t add. Don’t dismiss. Just read.

THE CLAY JESUS

There is, and has been, an epidemic of people desiring to make Jesus out to be some piece of clay where they can mold Him into whatever they want Him to be. The issues and methods are as wide as the horizon because people love to think their sins are okay in His eyes. It is much easier to mold Jesus and turn Him into something He is not than confronting their desire to sin. If they confront their desire to sin, then they might stop doing something they like to do, no matter how sinful it is. Some know it is wrong, but keep doing it, like I did. Some try to turn a sinful act into something that isn’t sinful because Jesus didn’t directly confront that particular sin, but there is no way that in their heart of hearts that they think their sins are anything but sins.

Jesus was not here to condemn, but to be merciful. He knew the nature of people to sin, but wanted people to confront their sins and sin no more. A woman about to be stoned for adultery was saved by Jesus from those whose sins would also be punishable by death, which is why He said “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” Did Jesus say to her “It’s okay what you did”? No, He said “Go and sin no more.” Men Jesus healed were told by Him to not sin anymore and they have been forgiven. Forgiven for what? In today’s world those men just might ask Him that because they might have turned Him into a piece of clay too. It would be interesting to see His response. It wouldn’t be pretty.

Of the Old Testament laws, Jesus said expressly that He didn’t come to destroy, but fulfill. His life, death, and resurrection did not obliterate those laws. The harsh punishments for those laws, except those of the violent variety would be changed. Because of His sacrifice, it was time to forgive the sinner.

The apostle Paul reiterated those old laws, saying those who do not abide by them have no place in heaven. 1st Corinthians 6:9-10 “Do you not know that the UNRIGHTEOUS shall not inherit the kingdom of God? BE NOT DECEIVED: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,” “nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor violent, nor extortioners shall inherit the kingdom of heaven.” The words “abusers of themselves with mankind” in the KJV was the Greek word “αρσενοκοίτης” (ar-sen-ok-OY-teece), which are two Greek words put together, meaning “male cohabitation”. This meant in a sexual way, as the word “αρσενοκοίτης” means a male homosexual in the Greek.

I heard rdiculous notions that Jesus was fine with homosexuality because He never directly spoke out against it, even though He did directly speak against fornication. I even heard one person on some socialist radio program bring up the centurion Jesus spoke with was a homosexual, and Jesus didn’t condemn him. He brought up that the servant that was ill the centurion asked Jesus to heal was “λαίς” (pah-EECE) in the Greek, which means “servant boy”. The centurion showed great faith by saying to Jesus that He can heal his servant without visiting him. He didn’t want Jesus to go too far out of His way. Jesus saw that this centurion displayed great faith in Him, so He was impressed enough to say He hasn’t seen such great faith in Israel as his. The radio show guy said it was common for centurions to have these servant boys basically as sex toys, and this is true because Rome was an ultra-permissive society. That was part of their downfall, but that’s neither here nor there. While it was common, it was not a rule. Not every centurion had a young male sex slave. Here is something that this radio show guy or anyone else spreading this garbage can’t explain away though: that aforementioned adulteress woman Jesus said to sin no more- why didn’t He say the same of the centurion? Whether it is homosexual or simple fornication, it would be a sin if the centurion was having sex with his servant boy, right? So why didn’t Jesus, who knows the hearts of all men, say to the centurion “Sin no more”? Because he wasn’t having sex with his servant. That is the only explanation.

There are sadly going to be many who will be condemned after this life who accept Jesus was the Christ. Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone that says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord’, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. But He that does the will of My Father which is in heaven.” “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name? And in Your name have cast out devils? And in Your name done many wonderful works?'” “And then I will profess to them, ‘I never accepted you: depart from Me, YOU THAT WORK INIQUITY.'” Iniquity is sin. The will of our Father is not to sin, among other things. These will be the ones who swear up and down they are Christians, but will be condemned forever. Why?

All of these sins listed in the Old Testament and in 1st Corinthians by Paul are forgiveable. In order to be forgiven for them, one must admit to them. If one thinks their sins are not sins at all because they molded Jesus into how they want Him to be, then there can’t be forgiveness. They will wear their sins until they either humble themselves, or they will wear them forever. Jesus is not your piece of clay.

HOW DOES ONE TAKE GOD’S NAME IN VAIN?

The commandment which says “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain”, is broken by some basically everyday. It’s hard to avoid seeing it on television also. Taking His name in vain simply means saying His name for no real reason. Some will say that God isn’t His name, but His title as God is also a name. When you say “God this” or “God that”, without talking to Him or about Him, you are taking His name in vanity. Our Lord Jesus Christ is also our God, so the same is true about His name.

When you say their names, you are drawing their attention. If you draw it for no reason, then you take their attention away from those who might need their help. The Lord God mentioned on at least a few occasions about hearing the cries of people and then acting on their behalf, from the Israelites as slaves in Egypt to oppressed widows and fatherless children (Exodus 22:22-24).

This is also a matter of reverence to not use their names for any flippant expression. It’s very disrespectful to do so. Show them the respect they deserve and do not say their names in vain expressions. You exist by God, and you are saved by Jesus Christ. Show them the respect they deserve.

PROOF JESUS WAS THE CHRIST- OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECIES

Of the many prophecies of the Christ throughout the Old Testament, Psalm 22 is the most conclusive prophecy pointing towards Jesus being the Messiah. I have written about Psalm 22 often here, including my post “Psalm 22-David’s Prophecy of the Christ”. When Jesus said on the cross “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”, He wasn’t speaking to God. In fact, He was quoting the first verse of Psalm 22, which are those very same words. He was pointing out to those with eyes and ears that what was happening to Him was Psalm 22 being fulfilled. The psalms were written around 1000BC mostly by King David. In this psalm, it speaks not just of the crucifixion (verse16), but how those who would mock Him. Verses 7-8 say “All they that see Me laugh at Me with scorn: they portrude the lip, they shake the head, saying” “He trusted on the Lord that He would deliver Him: let Him deliver Him, seeing He delighted in Him.” In Matthew 27:42-43, the scribes and elders said mockingly “He saved others, Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Israel, let Him come down now from the cross, and we will believe Him.” “He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him, for He said ‘I am the Son of God.'” Back in verse 39, it says people shook their heads as they passed by Him. As I have put forth here, Satan’s wish wasn’t to have Jesus die there. He would have loved to keep the Christ from being born or killed as a baby, but not there on the cross. Satan’s plan was to have Christ’s last hours to be so brutal, and to use those who were of him to mock Him so hopefully Jesus would get to a point where He couldn’t take it and call on the angels to save Him. If He did call on the angels to save Him, they would have, but Satan would have gotten what he wanted, which was that no one would die for the sins of this creation. It could only be His life to be laid down, since He was sinless. There can be no one else to come after to pay the price. There was not one moment Jesus couldn’t have gotten out of that brutal death, but He didn’t. God did not forsake Him, nor was He accusing God of doing so. He was quoting Psalm 22, which began with those words so the Messiah would repeat them on the cross to make people ask “Why wasn’t that a sin?” Psalm 22 is the answer.

The prophet Isaiah gave a few prophecies of the Christ also, especially in chapter 53. Verse 3 says that He will be despised by men. Verses 4 and 5 speak about Him being offered for our sins and iniquities. Verse 7 says that He will be silent as He is brought like a lamb for the slaughter. Verse 10 says His soul will be an offering for sin. In verse 12 Isaiah says He will bare the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors. This prophecy shows the Messiah must die as an offering for our sins. Those who looked to Jesus to bring about an eternal kingdom for Israel did not know the scriptures. The Messiah must first die.

Another prophecy of the Christ given by David was Psalm 110, with the first verse saying “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool.” This also shows that the Messiah will die in order to be in heaven with God.

Psalm 16 was another prophecy, with verse 10 saying “For You will not leave My soul in hell; neither will You make Your Holy One to see corruption.” The word “corruption” meant “decay”. Jesus’ body rose on the third day, so it didn’t decay. Another prophecy showing the Messiah would die. When did this happen?

There are other prophecies of the Messiah, but these are the most convincing ones. I call Psalm 22 the most important chapter in all of the Bible because it proves quite conclusively that Jesus was the Messiah, thus proving God also exists. If you read what the apostles were up against in an effort to spread the Gospel that Christ lived, died for our sins, and lives again, you will see that this message had help spreading all over the world. Only God could have saw to that against all the elements.

DOES THE BIBLE SAY IT IS WRONG FOR WOMEN TO WEAR PANTS?

This rule comes from Deuteronomy 22:5, which states “The woman shall not wear what pertains to a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination to the Lord your God.” The problem with the interpretation by many of this law is that they didn’t take into account that men and women both wore dresses in that day. God warned men through His servants the prophets that He will raise up their skirts and expose the nakedness of the iniquities they committed they thought were not noticed by God. If one took into account what men and women both wore in that day, then perhaps they would think of the meaning.

What this law meant was that women should not play the role of men and men should not play the role of women. This covers things all along the spectrum. This does not include women working, sports, or anything like that. Women made clothes and other materials to sell them, which would qualify as a job. If a man wears a skirt, stockings, and stilettos, then that is wrong. It is a man being effeminate, which is also written in 1st Corinthians 6:9. Sex change operations and taking hormones to change genders are an abomination to the Lord. To those of you who did such things, but say “Can’t God make mistakes?”, implying God put them in the wrong gendered body, it is not God that made the mistake, but you did.
