NEWS FLASH----Oldest human remains found in Israel

Gopher said if the remains are definitively linked to modern human's ancestors, it could mean that modern man in fact originated in what is now Israel.

Weather in Jerusalem

I added the "yowindow" which shows today's as well as the next weeks weather.
Interesting to note how nice the weather seems most all of the time.
Nice to know as this will be our new home in the future!!

And he (an angel) showed me (the apostle John) a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. Rev 22.1

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. Ps 46.4

The Orchard of God

All along the river's verdant banks you see lofty, fruit-bearing trees...

* Trees of Life -- a vast Orchard of Life -- lift their leafy arms, all along the unending flow of Life's River.
* Everything around you teems and throbs with Life. Everlasting Life! Joyous, Eternal Life!

...on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Rev 22.2

100,000 Jews were killed

As the perennial scapegoat, the Jews were also blamed by many for the Bolshevik coup d'etat of October 1917; approximately 100,000 Jews were killed in the anti-Bolshevik campaigns conducted by Ukrainians, Poles, and Russians.

The Parable of the Fig Tree

Jesus was asked by His Disciples about the signs that would precede His Second Coming at the end of the church age.
One of the last prophetic signs was the sign of the fig tree.
Five times in the OT the tree was used as a symbol of Israel.
Judges 9 10 to 14 0 “Next, the trees said to the fig tree, ‘Come and be our king.’
1 kings 4 25
Jeremiah 24 1 4 Then the word of the LORD came to me: 5 “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘Like these good figs, I regard as good the exiles from Judah, whom I sent away from this place to the land of the Babylonians.[b] 6 My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them. 7 I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.
Hosea 9 10 10 “When I found Israel,
it was like finding grapes in the desert;
when I saw your ancestors,
it was like seeing the early fruit on the fig tree.
But when they came to Baal Peor,
they consecrated themselves to that shameful idol
and became as vile as the thing they loved.
Micah 4 4

400 Years between Old and New Testament

It is amazing how God utilizes history to work out his purposes. Though we are living in the days that might be termed "the silence of God," when for almost 2,000 years there has been no inspired voice from God, we must look back -- even as they did during those 400 silent years -- upon the inspired record and realize that God has already said all that needs to be said, through the Old and New Testaments. God's purposes have not ended, for sure. He is working them out as fully now as he did in those days. Just as the world had come to a place of hopelessness then, and the One who would fulfill all their hopes came into their midst, so the world again is facing a time when despair is spreading widely across the earth. Hopelessness is rampant everywhere and in this time God is moving to bring to fulfillment all the prophetic words concerning the coming of his Son again into the world to establish his kingdom. How long? How close? Who knows? But what God has done in history, he will do again as we approach the end of "the silence of God."

How much oil is in Israel?????

Estimates of volumes of undiscovered recoverable oil is about 1689 MMBO
Or in dollar terms would be roughly 135 billion US dollars!!!

666 What does this number mean???

Do not be confused by people telling you they know who the person is with the 666 number.
This is not for the Christians of the Church age.
This will be for the people during the Tribulation period so that they know who this "beast" is and not to worship it.
To worship it would mean be to cast your lot against God.

Esther Woman of the Bible

Esther's Shrine in Iran

Interesting visit to the Shrine of Esther.

Jewish exiles from the Kingdom of Judah who had been living in the Babylonian captivity (6th Century BCE) found themselves under Persian rule after Babylonia was in turn conquered by Cyrus the Great, King of the Persians and Medians and founder of the Persian Empire who according to the Biblical Book of Ezra released them from captivity and allowed those that wished to return to Jerusalem, giving them back the money which Nebuchadnezzar II had carried away from Jerusalem.[2] According to the Book of Esther, Haman, royal vizier to King Ahasuerus planned to kill the Jews, but his plans were foiled by Esther, Ahasuerus's queen. Mordecai, a palace official, cousin and foster parent of Esther, subsequently replaced Haman. The Jews were delivered from being the victims of an evil decree against them and were instead allowed by the King to destroy their enemies, and the day after the battle was designated as a day of feasting and rejoicing.

Mark of the Beast

when I was young I wondered why in Revelations you would be required to have a mark on your person in order to buy or sell in the marketplace.
Now however it makes perfect sense as this would be a microchip like device that would identify you and only you when making transactions!!!

Psalm 8:2 Praised by the children
Psalm 22:7,8 Laughed at by his enemies
Psalm 22:16, Luke 23:33; 24:38-40 Pierced in hands and feet
Isa. 50:6 His back was be beaten
Psalm 22:18; Psalm 22:18; John 19:23-2 Others would compete for his clothes/cast lots for his garments

Psalm 69:21 Given vinegar with honey
Psalm 109:4 Prayed for his enemies
Psalm 109:8 The punishment of the one who betrayed him

Catholic view

In a press conference at the Vatican, Monsignor Cyril Salim Bustros, a Greek Melkite archbishop from Boston and president of the Church’s Commission for the Message, launched a blistering attack against the very foundation of Jewish belief.

“The Holy Scriptures,” Bustros declared, “cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians, to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands.”

Not stopping there, he went on to state that “we Christians cannot speak of the ‘promised land’ as an exclusive right for a privileged Jewish people… There is no longer a chosen people.”

And so, in one fell swoop, a senior Church official sought to deny the unique, covenantal relationship between God and the Jews, rejecting the divine promise to restore the people of Israel to their Land. One cannot help but wonder: What Bible is the Vatican reading? Whichever one it is, it must be missing a few pages, as even a cursory glance at the Scriptures makes clear that the Jewish people’s right to the Land of Israel is indisputably ordained.

How Many people will be saved???

Only 8 people were saved in Noah's time.

Considering Matthew 24:37 and that the times will be similar it reasons that only a few will be Raptured

Believe now to count yourself in this group!!!!

Boom in Israel real estate

Israel, despite perennial fears of war, has emerged as one of the hottest - and least likely - property markets in the world: Since real estate collapsed around the globe in 2008, at least one industry watchdog lists it as the fastest-rising property market on earth.

52 days

Heard an interesting idea that 52 years is a calculable time for a generation in the Bible.
If so add to 1967(year of Jews retaking Jerusalem) would give us 2019.
Deduct 7 for Tribulation time gives us 2012!! Interesting eh???

Do not be deceived.....we will not know who this person is as we will be Raptured before his identity is known to the world.

What will happen to organ recpients in the Rapture???

If the body is to be rebuilt at the Rapture then would it not make sense that the organs donated would be raptured out of the people who received these organs???
Would that cause instant death for them if they were not raptured themselves????

Money problems????

Never worry about financial problems as your Father will provide just as he does for food for the animals.
You are far more important to Him than they are!!!
This does not mean you can sit back and wait for God to provide.
You must work diligently to achieve this.

Icelandic Volcano

Amazing how soon the earth could be sent into darkness if this volcano explodes more or continues to erupt for many months.
This could be a sign of the end time trauma as it is associated with increased seismic activity.

How does God speak to us???

The primary way He does this is thru our reading of the Scriptures.
The more time we spend doing this the more knowledge we will gain.
Interesting note is that a Catholic has no way of gaining God's knowledge as they do not believe the Scriptures take precedence over the Vatican's knowledge.

How do you pray???

Beware of repetitious and wordy prayers.
Pray from the heart directly and with no hate for anyone in your heart or God can not hear your requests.

New technology

My latest Credit Card has a feature that all I have to do is tap it in the appropriate spot and it records my transaction and is fast.
Also I do not have to sign the bill either.
So the next logical step is for it to be implanted on my hand so I do not have to take the card with me all the time.
The Mark of the Beast is just around the corner folks!!!!

Games like Poker should be avoided at all cost by people claiming to be a follower of Christ.
They teach young people how to lie (bluffing).

Christ on the Cross

Many times to speed up the death process they would smash and break the legs of those on the cross.
This would make it impossible to pull up on their legs and be able to breathe against the constant pull downwards.
They did not do this to Jesus because it was predicted in the old testament that this would harm the perfect sacrifice (a reference to animal lamb sacrifices)

Was glass invented in Israel???

In order to keep with the Kosher standards eating vessels should not absorb any food material.
So glass was use to fufill this requirement.
The oldest examples date back to first century.

Easter Monday

Jesus said He would be in the tomb for 3 if He died on Friday then why would He have not risen on the Monday???
But it was common in the scriptures that even a part of a day would count as one day.
So part of Friday, all of Saturday  and part of Sunday would fufill the old testament prediction.

Animal Sacrifices

Animal sacrifices always bothered me in the Old Testament.
Some scattered blood was required before the priest could enter the Holy of Holies.
But I was thinking that Christ became the Ultimate sacrifice and the animal ones were Pointing to Him in the Future.

Why do People Celebrate Easter on Monday???

I think another case of Catholic's mixing pagan celeberations with Christian days.
The following week would be celebrations like egg rolling and being sprinkled with Holy water!!

       there will be no end.
       He will reign on David's throne

       with justice and righteousness
       from that time on and forever.

What Christ thought about child molesters

Fruits of the Spirit Catholic church

I saw on the news yesterday another case of child abuse by priests of the Catholic church.This time it was in Holland.

For me this is as low as a human can operate.Given an authority position over children and add to that a religious aspect well no further can you drop. This should be a great reason for the Death Penalty.

Jesus said you would know true Christians by "the fruits of the Spirit".

Galations 5:
19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.  22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Jerusalem a Trembling stone

This is a city that all three major religions claim a piece of.
And there will be no diplomatic long term answer to this problem.
Only when Christ returns to set up residence will this be resolved.

Zechariah 121 The burden of the word of the LORD concerning Israel.
Thus declares the LORD who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him, 2 “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. 3 “It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

Zecheriah 1
So the angel that communed with me said unto me, "Cry thou, saying, 'Thus saith the LORD of Hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.'"

Israel born in a day

Isaiah 66:7-8
"Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children."

During a 24-hour span of time, foreign control of the land of Israel had formally ceased, and Israel had declared its independence, and its independence was acknowledged by other nations. Modern Israel was literally born in a single day. Isaiah said the birth would take place before there would be labor pains. And that too is precisely what happened. A movement called Zionism began in the 1800s to encourage Jews worldwide to move to Israel, which at that time was called Palestine. Within hours of the declaration of independence in 1948, Israel was attacked by the surrounding countries of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

Dry Bones Prophecy

Ezekiel 37:10-14
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet--a vast army. Then he said to me: "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, `Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.' Therefore prophesy and say to them: `This is what the Sovereign Lord says: O my people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.'"

Watching CNBC this morning and they were covering the Greece situation.

Chile Earthquake Bible Prophecy

Another massive one in Chile!!!
Earthquakes in diverse places and huge are predicted in the Bible.
Do not be surprised to see many more in the coming months as we are in the end times!!!!

Earthquakes are one of the signs of the end of Grace time period.

Matthew 24:3-8 "While he was sitting upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately, saying: "Tell us, When will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?" 4 And in answer Jesus said to them 7 "For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress."

Luke 21:11 uses the phrase "and there will be great earthquakes,

Matthew 6:20-21 (New Living Translation)

20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

Since the fall of Adam we have been given the laws of Entropy and the 2nd law of thermodynamics.Not good.
In other words all life is decaying...this will not be so in the new world.

Gen. 1:18 God saw that it was good....this meant that in the original world we must not have had entropy etc. as this was not good.

Curse of sin Part 3

The third part of this curse concerns Cain's reaction to his brother Abel.
The murder brought violence into our world and has it ever been a problem since then.
This modern age sees more violence with WFC fights getting more violent.
Also all the shooting games that the children now consider games.

8Cain told Abel his brother. And it came about when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and (A)killed him.

9Then the LORD said to Cain, "(B)Where is Abel your brother?" And he said, "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?"

10He said, "What have you done? (C)The voice of your brother's blood is crying to Me from the ground.

11"Now (D)you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.

12"(E)When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; (F)you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth."

Curse of Sin part 2

Earth was cursed also so that man would have to toil to earn his living.

Genesis 3:17-19 (New International Version)

17 To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,'
"Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat of it
all the days of your life.

18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.

19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return."

Monday, February 22, 2010

Curse of Sin

Ever wonder why life is just off key???
Well it is because of Adam and his first sin.
Immortality was lost because of that and an intimate communication with God.

Generation Age

"And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years." Genesis 6:3.

When the Lord had said that there were giants in the earth in those days, He had in the previous verse just set a time period that would end in a hundred and twenty years. So the sentence saying "and also after that" must refer to the same period of time. The hundred and twenty years of time the people of Noah's day were given was so that they could repent of their sins and come back to God. So after that would be after Noah's flood, the end of the 120 years.

Could this 120 years apply to our present time since 1948 plus 120 equals the year 2068???

Would make sense God would use the same time frame as Noah and the Ark compared to present day Israel which is a sign of the End of an Age.

Can a Christian believe in Evolution????

According to the theory of Intelligent Design, God designed the Universe (along with its laws - the law of species evolution included) and then the universe evolved. This theory makes sense. Universe indeed seems well designed (a slight change to the 200-th decimal point of the gravitational constant or the electron charge would lead to a universe that cannot support life). Moreover, the evolution theory indeed explains some things in the micro-level of species evolution. However, having explained how fish evolved does not mean that you have explained the creation of the Universe! This is a huge logical leap done by people who believe in Darwin, that is not substantially justified.

I do believe that around 6000 years ago God created the Adam and Eve type human by whatever means as we know it. Maybe some genetic change perhaps.
Before that there must have been all kinds of evolved species and life which the archaeological evidence supports.

where does the 1 day/1000 year analysis come from???

2 Peter 3:8 (King James Version)

8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

we use this to calculate many prophetic passages in the Bible.

What is God's schedule? The Bible strongly suggests that God has a total plan for the present world of 7000 years. Biblical history so far has transversed 6000 years. This history of the world consists of 3 clearly delineated periods of 2000 years each - the Early period from Adam to Abraham, the Hebrew period from Abraham to Jesus Christ, and the Christian Period from Jesus Christ to now. Add to that the 1000-year Millennium period still yet to come for a total of 7000 years. This scenario is biblically supported by:
(1) the 7-day model described in Genesis 1:1-2:3,
(2) the 7th day as a day of rest and comparing that to entering the Millennium rest (Ps 95:11, Heb 3:11, 4:3-5),
(3) the prophecy in Hosea 6:2 regarding the remaining time being 2 days plus the 3rd day, and
(4) the message in Psalm 90:3 and restated in 2Peter 3:8 that with God a day is like a 1000 years.

The New Earth

God destroyed the surface of the earth by Flood in the past and promised not to destroy it again via that method..hence the rainbow.
However He will destroy both heaven and earth by Fire in the time to come to be replaced by a new Paradise!!!
A new world like the Garden of Eden that Peter spoke of in 2 Peter 3:13
13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

How do we share our time???

Friendship is very important..Jesus had many friends during his time on earth.
Your job or vocation is also must give it your best to serve the Lord.
Church time another priority. You should desire to share your time with other believers.
Spend some time to get your rest and restore your energy..the body should be a temple for the Holy Spirit.

Why we can count on the Bible

The way I see it there are three important prophecies in the bible.

1. 9th Day of Av 9th of Av

2. Christ was prophesied in the old testament Isiah 800 BC that he would come to Be the Saviour. Jesus

3. Israels restoration 1948 then to survive forever. 1948

what is the Feast of Trumpets???

The Feast of Trumpets is a Biblical holy day observed by Bible believers who keep the Seven Feasts of Israel. It is also known as the Jewish holy day Rosh Hashanah. Most view its fulfilment as a key waypoint into the End times. They believe that this epic future "day of the blowing of the shofar" will be a landmark day in history.
It occurs on Sept. or Oct each year.

Can a Christian marry a divorced person???

Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery" (Matthew 19:9; see also Matthew 5:31, 32).

the answer I think is NO.
If divorced you must live a celibate life till your ex passes.
Why risk going to the Lake of fire????

the year 1948 Predicted in the bible concerning the restoration of the State of Israel!!

Bible passage: Ezekiel 4:3-6
Written: between 593-571 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Ezekiel 4:3-6 the prophet said the Jew who had lost control of their homeland would be punished for 430 years. This prophecy according to Bible scholar Grant Jeffrey pinpointed the 1948 rebirth of Israel. Here's a summary of Jeffrey's theory:

1. Ezekiel said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from God. As part of the punishment the Jews lost control of their homeland to Babylon. Many Jews were taken as captives to Babylon.

2. Babylon was later conquered by Cyrus in 539 BC. Cyrus allowed the Jews to leave Babylon and to return to their homeland. But only a small number returned. The return had taken place sometime around 536 BC about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon.

3. Because most of the exiles chose to stay in pagan Babylon rather than return to the Holy Land the remaining 360 years of their punishment was multiplied by 7. The reason is explained in Bible's book of Leviticus. (Leviticus 26:18 26:21 26:24 and 26:28). In Leviticus it says that if the people did not repent while being punished the punishment would be multiplied by 7. And by staying in pagan Babylon most exiles were refusing to repent.

4. So if you take the remaining 360 years of punishment and multiply by 7 you get 2520 years. But Jeffrey says those years are based on an ancient 360-day lunar calendar. If those years are adjusted to the modern solar calendar the result is 2484 years.

5. And there were exactly 2484 years from 536 BC to 1948.

Salvation by works

Through infant baptism, keeping sacraments, church membership, going to mass, praying to Mary, and confession (just to mention a few), the Catholic church has developed a system of salvation through WORKS. God's word says that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not through works:

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Eph. 2:8-9)

"But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." (Romans 4:5)

The New Jerusalem

The Christians of old always had a strong belief in the New Jerusalem.
Their faith was so real they lived as strangers and pilgrims on this earth
Too many Christians today have lost their faith in and longing for the New Jerusalem.
They live each day only on their hopes and fears of their daily lives
and fallen in love with this world.
Things like bad television and movies,music.
In the past Christians were accused of being so heavenly minded that they were no earthly good!!!

the mass

By perverting the Christian practice of the Lord's Supper (Mat. 26:26-28; I Cor. 11:23-27), the Catholic Church has created the Mass, which they believe to be a continual sacrifice of Jesus Christ:

"Christ...commanded that his bloody sacrifice on the Cross should be daily renewed by an unbloody sacrifice of his body and blood in the Mass under the simple elements of bread and wine." (The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 10, Pg. 13, Article: "Mass, Sacrifice of")

Jesus never made such a command. If you'll check the above references in Matthew 26 and I Corinthians 11, you'll see for yourself that the Lord's Supper is a MEMORIAL and a SHOWING of Christ's death until He comes again. It is not a sacrifice. The Catholic Encyclopedia states the following:

"In the celebration of the Holy Mass, the bread and wine are changed into the body and blood of Christ. It is called transubstantiation, for in the Sacrament of the Eucharist the substance of bread and wine do not remain, but the entire substance of bread is changed into the body of Christ, and the entire substance of wine is changed into his blood, the species or outward semblence of bread and wine alone remaining." (Vol. 4, pg. 277, Article: "Consecration")

The Catholic Church teaches that the "Holy Mass" is a LITERAL EATING AND DRINKING OF THE LITERAL FLESH AND BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. The priest supposedly has the power to change the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ.

Now, what does God's word say about such practices? If you'll read Genesis 9:4, Leviticus 17:11-12, and Acts 15:29, you will find that God absolutely FORBIDS the drinking of blood all through the Bible.

Rome teaches that the Mass is a continual "sacrifice" of Jesus Christ, but God's word states that Jesus made the FINAL sacrifice on Calvary! This is made perfectly clear in Hebrews 10:10-12:

"By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God."

The mass is unnecessary and unscriptural.

Oil in Israel Scenario

I was thinking last night that if oil can be found in Israel and it could be huge according to Scripture..

Prophecy Sign: Did you know God warned us that Israel would be blessed in the last days? Guess where these blessings would come from? Can’t get it? Let me show you what the Lord said in Deuteronomy 33 19. “They will summon peoples to the mountain and there offer sacrifices of righteousness; they will feast on the abundance of the seas, on the treasures hidden in the sand." Let me ask you a question? What is usually found in the seas and in the deserts in the Middle East? Gas and Oil! Did you know part of Deu. 33:19 was fulfilled in Feb. 2009? Read this. “Last month Delek-Noble an energy exploration partnership, announced a massive natural gas discovery off Israel’s northern coast.........

.say 100 times Saudi Arabia's deposit then Oil could sink in price to say 10 dollars US.
That could cause major pain in Russia and Iran who just happen to be mentioned in Scripture as attacking Israel in the last days.
The reason could be to take that oil off the world market.

Oil in the Holy Land

Searching for Oil in the Holy Land that was predicted thousands of years ago!!!!


The Catholic Church teaches that a Christian's soul must burn in purgatory after death until all of their sins have been purged. To speed up the purging process, money may be paid to a priest so he can pray and have special masses for an earlier release.

This heresy began creeping into the Roman Church during the reign of Pope Gregory around the end of the sixth century, and it has no scriptural support. In fact, Jesus warned us about this pagan practice in Matthew 23:14 when He spoke of those who devoured widows houses and made long prayers for a pretence. Psalm 49:6-7 tells us that a person couldn't redeem a loved one, even if such a place did exist: "They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:"

Peter addresses this issue in Acts 8:20 when he says, "Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money." God's word is clearly against the doctrine of purgatory.

All unbelievers go to Hades and wait for the final judgement.

Christian Belief Statement

Christian Belief Statement

1. One God exists from everlasting to everlasting and expresses Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2. God inspired people to write the Bible (His Word), revealing His plan and His love for us.

3. God created us all in His image and deserves our love and obedience.

4. Through the decision of one man (Adam) death entered the world, separating us from God. Since then, we're all born separate from God.

5. Through the sacrificial death and resurrection of one perfect man (Jesus, God-the-Son) we can re-connect with God.

6. All we have to do is believe in Jesus to be forgiven of all our wrongs and to spend eternity with God…or…we can choose not to.

7. If we accept this gift from God, He lives in us (spiritually), empowering us to live, love and help others know Him.

Does your Soul sleep when you die???

Paul says we are present with the Lord when absent from the body.
2 Corint. 5:8
Also described as by Jesus to the thiefs with Him on the Cross as Paradise which links back to when God walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden Gen 3:8

Should we worship Mary???

Roman Catholics believe that Mary, the mother of Jesus, remained a virgin after the birth of Jesus and was sinless all of her life. She is worshiped in the Catholic church as the "Mother of God" and the "Queen of Heaven." St. Bernard stated that she was crowned "Queen of Heaven" by God the Father, and that she currently sits upon a throne in Heaven making intercession for Christians.

The Bible teaches otherwise. In the Bible, Mary was a sinner just like the rest of us. She said herself that she needed a "Saviour" (Lk. 1:47), and she even had to offer a sacrifice for her sins in Luke 2:24. Jesus was only her "firstborn" son, according to Matthew 1:25, because she later had other children as well (Mt. 13:55; Gal. 1:19; Psa. 69:8). There's only ONE mediator between God and men, and it isn't Mary (I Tim. 2:5). The last time we hear from Mary in the Bible she is praying WITH the disciples, not being prayed to BY the disciples (Acts 1:14). The Bible never exalts Mary above anyone else. Neither should we.

Was Peter the first Pope????

The Papacy and Priesthood

In the Bible there are no popes or priests to rule over the church. Jesus Christ is our High Priest (Heb. 3:1; 4:14-15; 5:5; 8:1; 9:11), and all true Christians make up a spiritual priesthood (I Pet. 2:5). Jesus Christ has sanctified all Christians who believe on Him (Heb. 10:10-11), so all priests today are unnecessary and unscriptural. Furthermore, the practice of calling a priest "father" is forbidden by Jesus Christ in Matthew 23:9. There is only ONE mediator between God and men (I Tim. 2:5).

The Catholic church teaches that Peter was the first Pope and the earthly head of the church, but the Bible never says this once. In fact, it was Peter himself who spoke against "being lords over God's heritage" in I Peter 5:3. Popes do not marry, although Peter did (Mat. 8:14; I Cor. 9:5). The Bible never speaks of Peter being in Rome, and it was Paul, not Peter, who wrote the epistle to the Romans. In the New Testament, Paul wrote 100 chapters with 2,325 verses, while Peter wrote only 8 chapters with 166 verses. In Peter's first epistle he stated that he was simply "an apostle of Jesus Christ," not a Pope (I Pet. 1:1). The Roman papacy and priesthood is just a huge fraud to keep members in bondage to a corrupt pagan church.

Haiti earthquake voodoo bible prophecy

Voodoo is strongly acclimated to, if not merged with the Catholic faith. Besides the historical facts that both in Benin as well as in the French, Spanish and Portuguese colonies where Voodoo landed, the Catholic Church was either the only and official religion, or was heavily propagated; only the Catholic Church offers the nearly identical spiritual practices that the Voodoo could relate to.

In general, Voodoo maintains the belief in an almighty God who, however, is detached from pedestrian lives and interactive mainly with chiefs and priests. The Christian churches of western Europe furnished in the American colonies that function of an elitist access to God, putting them not in conflict, but therefore, in a juxtaposed conformity with Voodoo beliefs.

The Catholic Church alone, however, offered a host of venerated Saints with personifications and roles not that different from those of the Voodoo spirits. Hence, for example, as the Voodoo spirit Legba commands access to abode of God in Africa, in New Orleans it was easy to reinvent him as St. Peter holding the key to heaven.

Next, the veneration of sacred objects, especially the uncorrupted corporal remains of Saints and relics, like splinters of the True Cross, relates naturally to the Voodoo beliefs that objects, gris-gris, are imbued with spiritual characteristics beyond their mere physical properties.

Finally, the most sacred of Catholic beliefs, the transformation of the Eucharist during Mass into the actual body of Christ, relates to the Voodoo understandings that when the spirits possess either persons, or things, they are transformed, in fact, into that living spirit.

In 1967 Pope Paul VI issued a papal encyclical, called the Africae Terrarum, which said in part, “Many customs and rites, once considered to be strange are seen today, in the light of ethnological science, as integral parts of various social systems, worthy of study and commanding respect. In this regard, we think it profitable to dwell on some general ideas which typify ancient African religious cultures because we think their moral and religious values deserving of attentive consideration.”

Later Pope John Paul II attended Voodoo ceremonies in Togoland and Benin. He also said, in part, in his Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation, Ecclesia in Africa, “Africans have a profound religious sense, a sense of the sacred, of the existence of God the creator and of a spiritual world.”

what is the Catholic Agenda??? Part 1

After Rapture a false church will be formed.
Working with the Antichrist it will encompass all world religions.
The word Catholic is derived from the Greek adjective καθολικός (katholikos), meaning "universal".
I believe the catholic church will take center stage in this.
They want to be the spiritual leader of the New World Order.
I also think it will be some version of catholic socialism as opposed to Capitalism which probably will be vilified for "raping the earth and causing pollution etc.".
In 1965 pope Paul IV told Vatican it would focus on the hopes, fears and aspirations of man on this earth rather than a Biblical focus with 1000 year reign of Christ on earth etc.

Mathematical Proof Of God---updated

According to the Mishnah (Taanit 4:6),

1. The twelve spies sent by Moses to observe the land of Canaan returned from their mission. Only two of the spies, Joshua and Caleb, brought a positive report, while the others spoke disparagingly about the land. The majority report caused the Children of Israel to cry, panic and despair of ever entering the "Promised Land". For this, they were punished by God that their generation would not enter the land. Because of the Israelites' lack of faith, God decreed that for all generations this date(AUGUST 9TH---9th of Av) would become one of crying and misfortune for their descendants, the Jewish people. (See Numbers Ch. 13–14)
2. The First Temple built by King Solomon and the Kingdom of Judah was destroyed by the Babylonians led by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BCE and the Judeans were sent into the Babylonian exile.
3. The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE, scattering the people of Judea and commencing the Jewish exile from the Holy Land.According to the Talmud in tractate Ta'anit, the destruction of the Second Temple began on the ninth and was finally consumed by the flames the next day on the Tenth of Av.
4. Bar Kokhba's revolt against Rome failed in 135 CE. Simon bar Kokhba was killed, and the city of Betar was destroyed. 1.5 million Jews were killed by the Romans.
5. Following the Roman siege of Jerusalem, the razing of Jerusalem occurred the next year. A Temple was built in its stead to an idol.
6. The Romans plowed Jerusalem with salt to eradicate its memory in AD 71.
7. The expulsion of the Jews from England in 1290.
8. The expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.
9. The killing of 100,000 Jews in eastern Russia as World War 1 began in 1914

For the last 3500 years every major disaster for the Jews has occurred on this exact time of the year.

The odds of these 9 things happening by chance on the same dates are unbelievable!!!
863,078,009,300,000,000 to 1
that is 863 zillion to 1!!!!

Idol Worship

God hates idolatry! One of the ten commandments.

"Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made." —Isaiah 2:8

"The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day." —Isaiah 2:11

My Uncle was married in a Roman Catholic church and because he was not a Catholic the Priest had to cover the head of the statues so they could not see this. Have you ever heard of anything as stupid as that????

History repeating itself???

Matthew 23 verses 5 to 9.

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2"The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. 3So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4They tie up heavy loads and put them on men's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

5"Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries[a] wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them 'Rabbi.'

8"But you are not to be called 'Rabbi,' for you have only one Master and you are all brothers. 9And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10Nor are you to be called 'teacher,' for you have one Teacher, the Christ.[b] 11The greatest among you will be your servant. 12For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

13"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.[c]

in one simple commentary Jesus described the rabbis pharisees of the past and the catholic priests fathers of our days.

Newton's Analysis of the year 2060

The second reference to the 2060 prediction can be found in a folio, in which Newton writes:
“So then the time times & half a time are 42 months or 1260 days or three years & an half, reckoning twelve months to a year & 30 days to a month as was done in the Calendar of the primitive year. And the days of short lived Beasts being put for the years of lived [sic for “long lived”] kingdoms, the period of 1260 days, if dated from the complete conquest of the three kings A.C. 800 (on December 25, 800, Charlemagne was crowned "Emperor of the Romans" by the pope), will end A.C. 2060. It may end later, but I see no reason for its ending sooner. This I mention not to assert when the time of the end shall be, but to put a stop to the rash conjectures of fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end, & by doing so bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail. Christ comes as a thief in the night, & it is not for us to know the times & seasons which God hath put into his own breast.”
The reasoning here is that today Charlemagne is regarded not only as the founding father of both French and German monarchies, but also as the father of Europe: his empire united most of Western Europe for the first time since the Romans, and the Carolingian renaissance encouraged the formation of a common European identity.

what happens when you die???

In the Old Testament the souls of the wicked went to Hades....the rest went to Abraham's bosom.Among Christian writers, since the 1st century AD, "the Bosom of Abraham" has gradually ceased to designate a place of imperfect happiness, and it has generally become synonymous with Heaven itself.

Since Christ the wicked still go to Hades suffering while waiting for the Final Judgement where they will be tossed in the Lake of Fire...ultimate destruction.
The Saved have their souls go to Paradise and will get their resurrected bodies at the Return of Christ to Earth. Then they will live with Christ for a 1000 years then forever!!!!

Japanese Earthquake Bible Prophecy

Another one!!!
Magnitude 5 or so.

Haiti Earthquake

Well sad to say it looks like 100,000 estimated deaths!!!
Indeed would make it in the top ten biggest quakes of all time and makes it 8 out of 11 that have occurred since the restoration of Israel.

Earthquakes are one of the signs of the end of Grace time period.

Matthew 24:3-8 "While he was sitting upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately, saying: "Tell us, When will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?" 4 And in answer Jesus said to them 7 "For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress."

Luke 21:11 uses the phrase "and there will be great earthquakes,…"

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Haiti Earthquake prophecy 2010

Another sign of the end times with increase in frequency and size of earthquakes.....will have to see how big this was in terms of deaths.
If there are greater than 40,000 then this would rank in the top 11 which means the Bible is right again as that would mean 8 out of last 11 have occurred in since the restoration of Israel!!!!!another prediction in the Bible!!!

Actually 230,000!!!!This would make it #3 on the List....check here..........updated jan 2011

is hell forever???

The next scripture proves without doubt that Hell is not forever.

Revelation 20:13-15
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The following scriptures tell us that the wicked will also be destroyed.

Romans 9 22
What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath--prepared for destruction?

Matthew 7:13
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

Philippians 3:19
Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things.

2 Thessalonians 1:8-9
8 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
9 They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power

2 Peter 3:7
By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

2 Peter 3:11-13
11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives
12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.
13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

the different ways a person became a slave and freedom rules

A man who was very poor could sell himself. Lev. 25:39, 47
A father could sell his daughter. Ex. 21:7; Neh. 5:5
An adult woman could sell herself. Deut. 15:12-13
A thief paid off his debt by serving as a slave. Exodus 22:1-3
It is important to note that scripture is providing guidelines for handling these situations and is not requiring these individuals to sell themselves, or saying that someone must be sold. In ancient Israel, very poor people sold themselves as servants or slaves to wealthy families in order to survive. God did not want poverty in the land. This was an ancient form of welfare. This is the background to the situations above.

However, there shall be no poor among you, since the LORD will surely bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess . . . (NASB) Deut. 15:4

Freedom. The Old Testament also gave the rules for releasing slaves – giving them their freedom:

Freedom From Slavery Passage
Hebrew slaves were given their freedom after six years. Ex. 21:2
Slaves could choose to stay with their masters. Ex. 21:5-6; Deut. 15:16-17
If the slave left his master, he could take his family with him - unless he met his wife while he was with the employer. Ex. 21:3-4
Female slaves were to be freed if mistreated in anyway - especially sexual mistreatment. Ex. 21:8-11
Any slave must be freed if his or her eye or tooth were damaged. Ex. 21:26-27
Slaves could gain their freedom if family members paid for their freedom. Lev 25:48-49
Slaves could redeem themselves. Lev. 25:49
When the year of Jubilee arrived, Hebrew slaves were to be freed. The person could have been a slave for only a short time or for six years; but when the year of Jubilee came, they were free men and women. In fact, the book of Deuteronomy requires that fellow Israelites who were slaves were to be released without regret. They were to be released and liberally given gifts from the master's flock, food and wine (Deut. 15:12-18).

It shall not seem hard to you when you set him free, for he has given you six years with double the service of a hired man; so the LORD your God will bless you in whatever you do. (NASB) Deut. 15:18

what does the bible say about slavery??part one

Old Testament Laws. When we come to the Old Testament laws about slavery, we discover that God prohibited taking a man or a woman by force for any reason.

And he who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death. (NASB) Exodus 21:16

If this law had been used, the Civil War would not have occurred. All slave traders would have been killed and slave trading would have stopped. We also find that God prohibited the return of a slave who ran away.

You shall not hand over to his master a slave who has escaped from his master to you. He shall live with you in your midst, in the place which he shall choose in one of your towns where it pleases him; you shall not mistreat him. (NASB) Deut. 23:15-16

how rich was Soloman???

In the Bible at 2 Chronicles 9:13 it says that Soloman had a basic yearly revenue of 666 Talents or 22,000 kilograms of Gold. A talent weighed between 20 and 40 KG but the average estimated is 33kg...... 35 oz in a kg....The price today of one oz. of Gold is at $1116.000 so his yearly income would be $859,320,000.00

so pleased to say my monthly growth at over 60%.

the early church

the 7000 year story of the church and the belief in bible prophecy in terms of a literal view was well established up to the year 250 when teaching changed to the allegorical(non literal) and in my opinion incorrect view of scripture.
