This is my theropod, carnivorus, height about 10-20ft at shoulder, length average about 20 feet to 30 feet or so, biped, diet is of carrion, top speed probably based on way of movement, weight which is about 20,000 lbs give or take,, and  height I say 10 mph. Type, reptile, habitat tropical to subtropical,  teeth types, crushing, breaking, tearing. profile, surfboard straight, on two very enormous legs muscular and strong, bulky,  Since these guys are so heavy per foot and on two legs I think of them like humans very careful and slow moving, after all that head is about 20 ft off the ground and they cannot afford to fall or trip or get knocked over. their weight would shatter their bones even in a minor fall. Even a minor injury can be fatal, skin type, smooth, probably very colorful and why not, todays reptiles (especially lizards can be very colorful)have lots of color and textures and skin surface types from smooth to rough to horned etc.

my guy here is about full grown, and loves water and wet places especially when it is hot. possibly cold blooded with 3 chambered enormous heart, smallish brain with average size cortex, possibly binocular vision,  good sense of smell, possibly gave some parental care and protection, most likely as guard while baby eats what it can catch. It not known for sure whether they cared as birds do bringing food to their young, some evidence suggests some types of dinosaurs did drag food to them but that is not confirmed. The evidence is there but is open to interpretation as there are a lot of possible explanations for many of the physical evidences found, what ideas do you have as to how they looked, how they lived, how they moved and how they died?.

What killed off the prehistoric animals including the dinos? massive asteroid? there is evidence for such enormous objects hitting the earth and shattering and burning damage, some say volcanos, evidence of that exists especially in Siberia for extreme volcanic activity large enough to kill off most life, was it disease? Some are still trying to figure it out, but no one knows for sure, all we know is these asteroids and eruptions did happen but could it had happened before the earth even had life on it yet? could it have happened shortly after a atomosphere was being formed? could it have happened before land ever appeared, or since there was a time during noahs day that all land was underwater almost a year, and the upheavals moved whole mountains, shake rattle and roll mixing up everything disguising real time frames here? all the evidence could of got mixed up in the layers and conveying the idea that they volcanos and asteroid were during the same period as dinos since they appear in same layers.

And scientists agree that continents  move and change and push against each other and push some up while others go down, could this not change the layering system hiding the real time line? When volcanos erupt, earthquakes happen or massive landslides and such could that not also mess up the layering effect of time conveying wrong time sequences? More questions then answers don’t you think.  I do hope you like my dinosaur, I tried to draw and color from memory as I said I am still learning and practicing.

Good bye all, thanks for visiting.

Things that comfort me

Hi there, how are all my fans doing today, lol, fans that is a funny one, I actually have something to say today, wahoo! stop the presses we have a news flash, lady wisdom is on the war path again, war path of wisdom for the depressed, the sad, the disillusioned, the intellecturals in need of some actual intellectural stimulation. Or just plain folk who are bored out of their gourd waiting for winter to finally go away and never come back.

You know winter lasted to long when you go get gas and you cannot figure out why the diesel light keeps coming on  when you pick up the nozzle and you keep pushing the unleaded gas button and it doesn’t do anything. Only to find out there are two nozzles, DUH!!!!! Yesterday was a bad day, had a bad night of sleep and the sun was so nice all I wanted to do was sleep in its wonderful beams. Or when you sit down at your computer and don’t notice a beautiful new rose my hubby just brought me, boy did I feel like a cad. I see the important of getting a good nights sleep, your brain literally shuts down on you.

Today I was reading articles by different people, economists and political advisors, commentators, you know all the people who are watch dogs for government, over the economy, and other facets that affects all of us directly or indirectly.  If it were not for my faith in the bible and knowledge it has given me, I would absolutely be totally insane or dead, it is enough to put you off to life itself. Makes one want to do what that guy who lived alone in the wilderness for 35 years did, move away from people, tax collectors, abusive police, politicians, lying news media, and the like.  Have a peaceful life where you go about your business without others trying to dictate to you what you will or not do with your property life or liberty. Safe from the depressing news on the wars, the stupidity of humans trying to govern themselves and the like. Cant really blame him at all.

One thing the comforts me is this, Matthew 5:3, 6:9-12, revelation 21:3-4 These basically say pray for Gods kingdom to come and take over the earths affairs, get rid of wicked people, as you have to be meek to inherit the earth, and wicked people are not meek, and God putting his tent (figuratively) over the earth and meek mankind and ridding the earth of all the things that cause suffering, injustice and depression and crushes ones’ spirit for life. I know a lot of people understand this as we do live in the land of Christendom, (well most on here do) but do people really understand what this entails?

Daniel 2:1-44 is very comforting to me, but not to those who want to continue this world as it is or only modified to be more comfortable for them, do not like to hear. it basically means human governments will be crushed out of existence. what is crushed? an idea? no actual people will be crushed, those who refuse to submit to God’s ruler ship over them. This is what armagedden is all about.  So I do not worry about the earth being destroyed by asteroids from space, a massive volcano eruption in the middle of usa or global warming or a third world war with nuclear weapons. this is because Jehovah promised that earth would stand forever and be inhabited by the righteous forever. psalms 37 speaks about this, so does Isaiah 65, and 11 speaks about it. proverbs which I remember so well because I like the way it is worded. proverbs 2:21-22 speaks about the wicked being removed from the earth and the righteous left over in it, quite the opposite of the rapture thingy that I used to believe in where the wicked remain and righteous taken up to heaven to watch the wicked be destroyed.

Another thing that comforts me and others who appreciate it, is that the poverty we see today will be no more, true peace and security is soon to be had, because all signs of the ‘sign’ are evident to bible readers and the earth is being ruined beyond repair by man. matt 24:1-14, luke 21, 2timothy 3:1-5, revelations 13, 17, 19, which all state the organizations that would arise during the “Lords day” and the conditions on the earth and the attitudes of people will be. rev 6 shows what sequence of events would play out when Jesus takes over ruler ship in the heavens, when he opens the seals.

While I am not comforted by the number of people who will be destroyed by God, I am comforted by the fact these will not be destroyed due to ignorance or by mistake or because they did not understand, but rather because they refused to follow God’s laws on matters, who want this world and its cruelty and injustice to continue because it allows them to have some corruption and selfishness of their own. It allows them to stay in the dark figuratively speaking to commit their pleasure seeking, fornicating, and murderous (by association) lifestyles. Sure they probably didn’t kill anyone directly but they supported those that did. In their hearts, in their hearts is what Jehovah looks at.

I am comforted by the fact Jehovah takes no pleasure in destroying the wicked, in Ezekiel 9 he states that so well, I do not take delight in the death of someone wicked in that he would turn around and gain life instead by obedience. I am seeing over time that Jehovah is right, he is not some creepy spirit going around causing trouble to disobedient mankind, they can do enough harm to themselves on their own thank you very much, he is right, his ruler ship is the best most just, benevolent and satan is the liar, he stated God was selfish and did not have the moral high ground, satan is the one causing the woes to us, not Jehovah, He is the one who is exacting, cruel, unjust, who has no love for man the earth or the animals. Satan despises us, we remind him to much of Jehovah’s wonderful qualities when we exercise our free wills to serve Jehovah and reflect his qualities as much as possible.

Satan did all this harm to us physically, spiritually, emotionally, and crushes us because he wants to be worshipped, he was jealous of the worship Jehovah was going to get from humans, can anyone think of anything more selfish then this? He knows he can’t get you to worship outright so he has to mislead you by lies to get you to worship him indirectly through rulers, actors, artists, philosphers, and intellecturals. He has to get you to hate God or disbelieve in his existence, he uses our own natural desires and needs and perverts them to his own satisfaction and to our harm, what a creep.!!!!!

I am comforted that he will be destroyed never to cause harm anymore once people and angels see fully that satan is the liar not Jehovah. Yahooooooooo!!!

So there you have it gang, friends and neighbors, I am still working on my dinosaurs drawings. so it will be a while still getting data on them, and see how they move and such so I can do the best drawings I can. Does anyone have a favorite dino they like? I like the sauropods and hadrosaurs and scutasaures. ta ta for now.

prehistoric disasters documentary

I just finished watching this documentary on Netflix, I want to give a review, I give it a 3 stars, *** this is why.  the data they gave for their proof of what they think happened seemed sound enough, the charcoal layers in the earth that were found all over the earth indicating some kind of earth wide fire or burning of some kind of plants and animals,  the large crators found indicating very large meterorites or asteroids hitting some time in the past,  some feel it was a massive volcano eruption since they have found a large volcanic field the size of Alaska in Siberia, which if it occurred when life was existing, then it would block out the sun, cause massive die off of plants and then the animals, causing massive darkness for months, global cooling, stuff like that.

The believe based on the size of the crators, and the evidence of how far the debris field was that the massive asteroid that they think wiped out 95 percent of the crittors, was traveling about 45000 mile per hour, they indicated that where it hit could not have been the worst place to hit,  with all the chances of hitting somewhere else being high, why did it hit that spot in the yucatan where there is high sulfer deposits, causing massive spewing of sulfer dioxide and burning particles and co2 rise blocking out the sun, cooling the planet, etc you get the picture.

the first episode spoke about a collision of the earth and another body that became the moon, and the moon was much closer, causing massive tidal waves, the earth was moving faster too, causing severe weather, there was a 21 day cycle, some even think the earth had a 6 hour day, I wonder if we were alive then if we could feel the effects of an earth going that fast?  now these believed facts seem okay to me, after all the bible does not tell us how the planets were formed, how the earth was prepare for our future arrival nor how long a day is when dealing with millions of years,  he doesn’t tell us, being a forever living person he wasn’t in no hurry. time for him is meaningless unless he is dealing with his servants who are aware of time and base our lives on it. This includes the angels by the way.

the second episode I watched spoke about how meteorites carry water hitting the earth and making water accumulate on earth, I heard this idea before called the star water theory, anyway it spoke about how enough water accumulated allowing for the soup for the mixing of chemicals including amino acids,  creating life,  when they said this their logic and understanding of how life works fell flat?

when they start speaking about something that contradicts their own understanding of laws of physics, chemistry, life, then they enter the realm of self worship and blind faith. They are essentially trying to get around divine intervention and purpose. For some reason or another the belief in a divine being as creator and ruler over his own creation just bugs the heck out of them and they have to get rid of him at all costs. I don’t know why anyone  would want to remove a person who went through the massive trouble of billions of years to create the universe then the earth and then eventually life in the forms of simple things scientists call them, to the sea creatures to the dinosaurs and the time period required to prepare the earth for our arrival, who created us so beautifully, and this planet being so beautiful and so comfortable (except for winters but that is another story) who gave us color and beautiful creatures and a mind that can go beyond just existing and survival for a few years then dying off, ability to build on previous knowledge to ask questions, to appreciate things like a beautiful bird or rainbow, ot have friendships that are strong and enjoyable, I mean I want to know who this person is and why he did this and what his purpose for us is in the future? wouldn’t you ?

Since the bible does not tell us how long a day is we can only guess and scientists do have a lot of data indicating that the earth is billions of years old, I can accept that, that life on it has been here for millions or even a billion years starting with sea life (which the bible indicates he created life in the seas first and the flying creatures (the Hebrew word used means winged creatures),  then the larger animals came on the scene gradually,  the atmosphere  gradual clearing before creating the sea creatures, allowing for water plants to create oxygen, for the sun to shine through, the clearing of the gases such as co2 falling due to the plants (before he created the land animals by the way) the dry land gets plants and as these develop over time the animals being created to eat those plants down to prepare the earth soil with organic material (the dinosaurs were perfect for the job being such large plant eaters) I can imagine if no animals ate the plants down for thousands of years then they would be overgrown and large, so the earth was gradually being prepared for us, by the way I am wondering, if the asteroid was so large fast and managed to get through the atmosphere and was devastating enough to destroy all the plants and animals causing global cooling for so long, I am wondering if possible Jehovah removed the animals first, (or the volcano idea) since their purpose was no longer needed, or maybe the volcano or asteroid hit before  the animals on land were created? maybe to burn down the vegetation to add nutrients to the soil? I cannot imagine him using cruel methods to destroy animals,

I mean in the garden of eden animals were at peace with each other, (they would still die of old age) and the predators job was to eat them after they died naturally. animals did not start killing each other until after adam and eve sinned and satan rulership began. they did not become a danger till then too, and man a danger to them, till after the sinning occurred. Also man did not become a danger to their fellow man either till after the couple sinned. So Jehovah is a God of peace and kindness and love and justice, so naturally he would not be cruel to man or animals. including prehistoric earth animals.

So my guess is either the animals were not there during those catastrophes or they occurred before life began at all and man has misread the timetable of the earth. It is possible only plants burned and sea creatures were the only ones around yet, don’t know, even with all the data they have when something occurred and how its effected life on it is still subject to wide speculation. They do not know the effects after all there are multiple factors involved for example while methane is a greenhouse gas, co2 is too, co2 also acts like a coolant under certain circumstance,  the suns changes affect the climate too, while the sun was temporarily blocked out, and the plants died, this released a lot of co2 which would warm things up or cool things down more, no one knows for sure. the blocking of the sun by volcano ash or asteroid hit may have lasted only a short time, while the sparks from the asteroid may have caused massive fires to break out over the world the massive heat would of caused rain to fall in the clouds that evaporation and spewing of all that water into the air would of caused, right? does this make logical sense?

there are just to many factors that they missed or are ignoring to know for sure what happened, I think the humble and modest thing to do is just to say we don’t know for sure. we must always remember human wisdom is very limited our ability to read the earth and it’s signs is in it’s infancy,  trying to read the earth and predict what the future may hold (some volcano in the middle of the usa  may erupt causing devastation all over the northern hemisphere which due ot happen due to it heating up, or we are due for another asteroid hit or global warming is going to kill us all or predicting what the future will hold with regard to how hot the planet will get etc) all these things reminds me of people who used to look to the sun, stars and looked into the liver of animals or for other signs of predicting the future, (astrology, numerology, palm reading, taro cards, etc)

we have to be careful to separate the data found in the earth from the superstitious idea of predicting the future long in advance based on those findings. and we have to be careful to separate these facts from treating speculation as fact too. Basically what I am saying is we need to be totally honest when evaluating data and studies of the earth and life on it now and in the past.

Good day fellow people, hope you enjoyed this, I am still working on my dinos for part two, I want to do a good job, something pleasant look at.EPSON MFP image

SATANS TACTICS

With the birth of the Messianic Kingdom, Isiaiah 9:7

as with the birth of Jesus back in the first century, came as  a joyful occassion as in the past as now, with blessings for mankind who accept and partake of it. For those knowledgable about the progression of this “Throne of David” and how the seed promised at Gensis 3:16 would progress through the line of the tribe of Judah down to Jesus birth from this tribe to his death the removal of the natural isrealites as God’s special possession to allowing all to be part of his Kingdom blessings this is a reminder.

Each progression of God’s blessings and rulership came a rival Kingdom, determined to turn all away from the Kingdom of God that would impart life. In job 2 you can read how Satan accused Job of serving God out of selfish reasons and how God allowed satan limited access to test Job. Was God unsure of Jobs integrity? nah, it was to show the angels and to others who would learn of this account that yes there are people who serve God out of love and respect and not for what they could get out of him.

What is one tactic he uses? Well what is one thing humans have a strong desperate need for? you guessed it, a spritiual need, the need to go beyond basic human survival, look how inquisitive man’s mind is, how many questions he has and how he searches for them. Satan exploits this need (along with our physical needs too) to satisfy them in the wrong way. He has created rival gods, most people know that there are no such things as gods in the material universe, the sun or stars are not living beings, and that idols are nothing. This is just so obvious, yet there are gods that people make without ever realizing it unless it is pointed out, (I didnt notice it either).
one of those gods enviromentalism, (yea I know it is not a religion in most people’s minds) this is the idea that the most important thing to tackle and care for is the enviorment, and who would argue that? But when it becomes all consuming, and it’s mandates are based on conjecture, opinion, and false science, and adherents are considered heretics if they disagree or critically ask questions, then how is this different then religions of the past? if adherents are unwillingly to adjust their thinking based on new information, then you have a problem.

Another god is science, it is treated as sacred by alot of people, people set their clocks, lives, goals and understanding on it sometimes without much thought, or question. So I guess scientists are the priests of this religion. When one is worshipping man in any shape and form this becomes a dangerous precedent. Much of science, especially science of man’s orgins and future prospects, then they enter the realm of faith, as the evidence of thier conclusions is sparse at best,  yes they do manage to get some facts right, and I applaud that since science has helped us so much in so many ways it would fill a set of encyclopedias, but when a priest of science has his own bias, or beliefs system and is operating on assumptions before he even does his studies, and research that taints his conclusions. And when these priests are subject to peer or social or financial pressures to conform to preconceived ideas of supporters of the research, politicians, investors, etc, this god satan has used very well in getting people to come to wrong conclusions on things, how else do you think he is misleading the entire inhabited earth? Revelation 12:9-12

But you see people do not see satans influence in enviromentalism or science, to them it is always good, tho maybe applied wrongly sometimes but certainly not controlled by some unseen spirit. in fact science surly has proven satan and the demons as just superstitious. Hum, do you suppose satan has been very successful in convincing people (who have not really done their research)that he does not exist? that he has been successful in turning people away from Jehovah?

Lets take violence as an example, yes there has always been violence nothing new there, most people do not regard wanton violence and cruelty as the work of an invisible wicked spirit creature. many think that such things are a result of the evil inherent in human nature and the the main cause of evil is our own dark instincts.

Others theorize that a group of the wealthy and powerful or a shadowy global network has been manipulating people for decades in order to rule the world.   The definiton of wanton is unruly, mean, cruel, unjustified, uncalled for, for those who do not know.

Then there are those who blame the national governments and rulers for all the injustice and suffering they see. Since the beginning of time the devils thrist for power has also been reflected in politics and religion.  Revelation depicts political powers as wild beasts to whom the devil has given great authority. it also describes the shameless alliance between politics and religion as disgusting spiritural adultery. (Revelation 13:2; 17:1,2)

Think of the oppression, enslavement, wars and ethnic conflicts over the centuries that have resulted in the loss of millions of lives. can anyone honestly say that the shocking and horrifying events that have tainted the pages of human history were the normal activity of humans? Or were they the result of manipulation by unseen wicked spirit forces?

why does Jehovah allow satanic rule? Because satan contended that Jehovah was a bad ruler, and that humans would never serve him unselfishly. He allows humans to prove satan a liar, clear reproach on his name and their own. Satan in  his egotistic attitude was given up to a disapproved mental state. In his approach to eve he had evidently been contradictory in his own reasoning for he was charging God with unfair unrightous exercise of sovereignty and at the same time was evidently counting on Gods fairness: He seemed to think that God would consider himself obliged to let him live on if he proved his charge concerning the unfaithfulness of God’s creatures.

So the question is a moral one not one of might. But because of Gods invisibility and because Satan has exerted every effort to blind men’s minds Jehovahs power or even his existence has at times been questioned.

One of his  most successful methods of deception is using religious leaders who have an air of respectiblity and integrity taking on Gods name and pretending to be rightous and in harmony with God’s will. IN fact Jesus showed this to be the case, when he said  “lord lord did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name and perform many powerful works in your name?” matthew 7:22-23 What was his response to the question? “Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

Satan has enormous influence, he is called “the god of this system of things.” 2 corinthians 4:4. Sometimes he even pretends to be a good spirit, when in fact his intent is wicked. He craves worship, and wants people either knowingly or unknowingly to give him such worship.

HIs three main facets of his “House” to control people is politics, false religion, big business or economics. He uses propaganda that pretty much touches everything, he takes a good thing like science and technology and philosphy and perverts it. His intentions is simply keep people so busy, divided, and distracted they do not take any note of the time and season we are in regard to Jehovahs will and purpose. He especially targets those who are serving Jehovah. His goal is to get you to stop serving him and lose out on life. you see he lost out due to his own cultivated greed and selfishness, so now he is going to be destroyed, he is so hateful, spiteful and envious of those who are headed for life, he is doing all he can to sabatoge them. If he can’t have life he doens’t want anyone else to get it either. Does this attitude sound familiar?

I have read expressions to that affect, that is not fair he has more than me, share and share alike, no one should have more than another, you cannot have a bike because your sibling isn’t old enough to have one to and it would be unfair. Do you see what I mean? Social justice is a term that basically means those with less are envious and jealous of those who have more whether it is initiative, or innovative ability, or very intelligent, or self sufficient, more honestly earned wealth, or success in some other endeavor those who are jealous dont get to have, either because they lack ability or oppertunity or just because they are lazy and havent applied themselves to anything and would rather drag others down then lift themselves up.

terms like these, the use of semantics can have powerful effects for good or bad. Enviromentalism had a good conotation in times past, it was concerned with real problems, not fabricated ones like we have today. Any good endeavor, any good purpose will be hijacked by satan one way or another to pervert it to his own ends. Even in politics, if a very good and decent person wants to make things better strives for an office of great power, he will be hijacked in some way or another to be corrupted or he will be ousted or even murdered.

He will use the need for basics of life, which is what trade and economics were originally for, (not to gain power over others or create poverty for others) has been perverted to greed is good, use of economic control over others to plunder and siphon off the wealth of others without having contributed to it in anyway. He uses his whole house to cover all the bases of human life. His house is a house of death. It is designed to destroy people spiritually, intellecturally, economically, socially and destroy their prospects for everlasting life. Its purpose is to give false hopes and dreams that lead to a deep dark pit.

He wants to convince people that they will not die but live on in some spirit realm, or he wants them to live in terror of death to the point they will murder their fellow under the false pretense that they are a threat when they are really not. Get them before they get you, this person or that group is the cause of your troubles destroy them (remember the jews? rich vs the poor war going on right now?) and you will have peace. LIes lies and more lies is all he gives. but he is a master at hiding his real intent.

Another tactic he uses quite well is the theory of evolution, when I listen to the scientists and read the books on it is sounds pretty convincing, but the reality is it is not as simple as they make it out to be, there are alot of steps required for an animal to change its spots, so to speak, a full blown change of the dna is required. This dna change is not under the control of the animal itself or even the situations the animal finds itself it is born with it and it cannot be changed and when it is changed by damage to it, it creates disease, death and a reduction in ability to survive. An animal must have it in the dna before it can adapt, it requires many many steps and changes of the dna programming for fins to turn to legs or feet to fins or scales to turn to feathers, it requires more than dropping thier eggs and leaving the young to fend for themselves and ‘evolving’ to the process of actually guarding the nest, checking and controling temp, instincts to know how and when to protect them, how to respond to the calls of their young, how to gain and keep a mate, all these have to be in the dna before hand. dna is hardware not software, it is unable, to add or substract programs. dna is so complicated and intrigut that scientists are still learning about it and have not been able to produce even a partial dna molecule from non living matter so I would hardly call it a product of accident.

I hope people will realize that evolution researchers have a foundation of assumptions before they even find evidence of something which falsifies their findings. for example thier foundation is life evolved over many millions of years, gradually changing an animal from one type to another in response to survival challenges, without devine direction, two, life came from non life as non living molecules combined and eventually became alive, and thus able to reproduce itself and change over time. Thirdly, that despite no evidence at all, (some of it even found to be fraud of what they claim they do have) humans evolved over millions of years from monkeys and apes.

now this one might be harder for people to believe, but another assumption is that life was a dog eat dog world in the past, survival of the fittest and constant battle to survive and that the planet was mostly icy, or more desert shaping the animals ‘evolutionary changes’, this could not be furthur from the truth.

Evolutionary teachings have contributed in no small measure to the strong dominating the weak, thus justifying oppressing and murdering and robbing their fellow man. Might makes right mentality. It has excused the wicked and their violence by simply stating survival of the fittest and strongest, and man is an animal and thus will ‘eat’ others to survive hence destroying morality or right and wrong. This looks like it has satans markings through and through. One would have to totally blind not to see it.

For those who are discouaged take heart Psalms 2, revelation 21:3-4, psalms 37, all speak of rightous ones inhabiting a peaceful and happy place where the wicked will not be, matt 5:5 happy are the meek (peaceable, teachable) they will inherit the earth. not inherit heaven but the earth. where man’s was put in the first place and where he was meant to live forever. Satans time of ruling will be stopped pretty soon all facets of the ‘sign’ are in evidence. matt 24, luke 13, 2 timothy 3:1-5, revelation 6, etc. what is this ‘sign” check out my next post it will be brief, to give overall view.

European Commission Announces “Full Engagement” in Agenda 21

European Commission Announces “Full Engagement” in Agenda 21.

the word I hate the most well  maybe second is the word of they were forced, they r forced to live lives of austerity, lives of burdensome taxes and regulations, that word forced. and the one thing I hate even more is their list of problems (whether true or not) and the solution is to give more power and money to other humans from other humans (who caused the problem in their eyes)who get to force their utopian ideals as if they have any more wisdom ability or even right to do so then the average individual who is minding their own business. where do they get these illusions of graduer from? well take a guess, (if you do one act of worship then it will be all yours (the kingdoms of the world) satan he has illuisons of graduer, he knows he couldn’t get away with rebellion from God in fact he expects to be destroyed as he is not smarter or stronger than Jehovah, so he has inspired people to have the same attitude as him,he has to be worshipped thorugh other humans since he cannot materialize. he knew when he was thinking about rebelling in the beginning ofhis existance as satan, that he would be executed for it, he was willling to give up his everlasting life in heaven for temporary worship of other humans his desire so consumed him he stepped out into everlasting death. this desire blinded him to the future conseqences. this is why governments do crazy and creepy and unjust things. they have been inspired by satan to believe they are superior to their fellow man who is not in positions of authority in gov. satan has to get them to believe it, he even backs them up in their false prophecies, he has to make these people believe they are somehow smarter and wiser than others and that forcing their policeis on others via genocide and robbery and murder are acceptable ways to achieve thier promised paradise. the optimum words are arrogance and force. both I hate with a passion. Jehovah never forces anyone to worship Jehovah has wonderful personality, satan does not.

 

are Jws a new religion?

This is for all those who think or say Jehovah’s witnesses are a new religion. This also shows that God has chosen people over the centuries to be his anointed followers (possibly so) since the time of the apostacy of the chruch.

They will not put up with the healthful teaching.

2 Tim. 4:3.

The apostle Paul foretold that after the death of the apostles, the Christian faith would be contaminated by false teachings. (2 Thess. 2:3, 7) Among those who would not put up with “the healthful teaching” were some in responsible positions. Paul warned elders in his day: “From among you yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves.” (Acts 20:30) The New Encyclopædia Britannica describes one major factor that led to twisted reasoning: “Christians who had some training in Greek philosophy began to feel the need to express their faith in its terms, both for their own intellectual satisfaction and in order to convert educated pagans.” An important doctrine that was given a pagan twist had to do with the identity of Jesus Christ. The Bible calls him the Son of God; the lovers of Greek philosophy insisted that he is God. w12 1/15 1:9

[SCRIPTURES QUOTED IN TODAY’S TEXT]

(2 Thessalonians 2:3)

…Let no one seduce YOU in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction.

(2 Thessalonians 2:7

) …True, the mystery of this lawlessness is already at work; but only till he who is right now acting as a restraint gets to be out of the way.

A MARKED CONTRAST

9 The apostle Paul foretold that after the death of the apostles, the Christian faith would be contaminated by false teachings. (Read 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 7.) Among those who would not put up with “the healthful teaching” were some in responsible positions. (2 Tim. 4:3) Paul warned elders in his day: “From among you yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves.” (Acts 20:30) The New Encyclopædia Britannica describes one major factor that led to twisted reasoning: “Christians who had some training in Greek philosophy began to feel the need to express their faith in its terms, both for their own intellectual satisfaction and in order to convert educated pagans.” An important doctrine that was given a pagan twist had to do with the identity of Jesus Christ. The Bible calls him the Son of God; the lovers of Greek philosophy insisted that he is God.

10 The question was debated at a number of church councils. The issue could have been settled quite easily had the delegates given appropriate weight to the Scriptures, but most did not. In fact, the majority had made up their minds even before they arrived at the councils, and they left more deeply entrenched than ever in their positions. The canons and declarations that resulted from these meetings hardly even referred to the Scriptures.

11 Why were the Scriptures not more thoroughly considered? Scholar Charles Freeman answers that those who believed that Jesus is God “found it difficult to refute the many sayings of Jesus that suggested he was subordinate to God the Father.” As a result, church tradition and opinions of later authorities were substituted for the Gospels. To this day, many of the clergy elevate the uninspired sayings of so-called Church Fathers to a plane higher than the Word of God! If you have ever discussed the Trinity doctrine with a seminarian, you have likely noticed that.

12 True Christians Respect God’s Word ***12 A notable feature of the debates at those councils was the interference of the Roman emperors. In this regard, Professor Richard E. Rubenstein wrote respecting the Council of Nicaea: “Constantine had favored and enriched [the bishops] beyond their wildest dreams. In less than a year, the new emperor had returned or rebuilt virtually all their churches, given them back the jobs and honors taken from them . . . He had accorded Christian clergymen privileges formerly granted to pagan priests.” As a result, “Constantine was in a position strongly to influence

perhaps even to dictatethe course of events at Nicaea.” Charles Freeman confirmed: “The precedent had now been set that the emperor might intervene not only to strengthen the Church but to influence doctrine.”Read James 4:4.

13 While church dignitaries found it difficult to determine the exact identity of Jesus Christ, many of the common people had no such problem. Since they were not interested in lining their purses with the emperor’s gold or in furthering their careers in the church hierarchy, they were able to view matters more objectively, in the light of the Scriptures. And by all accounts, they did. A theologian of the period, Gregory of Nyssa, made this derisive comment regarding the common people: “Clothes dealers, money changers, and grocers are all theologians. If you inquire about the value of your money, some philosopher explains wherein the Son differs from the Father. If you ask the price of bread, your answer is the Father is greater than the Son. If you should want to know whether the bath is ready, you get the pronouncement that the Son was created out of nothing.” Yes, unlike the members of the hierarchy, many of the common people were supporting their conclusions by using God’s Word. Gregory and his associates would have done well to listen to them!

“WHEAT” AND “WEEDS” GROW TOGETHER

14 In a parable, Jesus indicated that from the first century onward, there would always be some genuine anointed Christians on the earth. He compared them to “wheat” growing among “weeds.” (Matt. 13:30) Of course, we cannot say for certain which individuals or groups belonged to the anointed wheat class, but we can confirm that there have always been some who have courageously defended God’s Word and exposed the church’s unscriptural teachings. Let us consider a few examples.

15 Archbishop Agobard of Lyons, France (779-840 C.E.), spoke out against image worship, churches dedicated to saints, and the church’s unscriptural liturgies and practices. One of his contemporaries, Bishop Claudius, also rejected church tradition and objected to prayers to saints and the veneration of relics. In the 11th century, Archdeacon Berengarius of Tours, France, was excommunicated for rejecting the Catholic teaching of transubstantiation. Moreover, he held that the Bible is superior to church tradition.

16 The 12th century saw the arrival of two lovers of Bible truth, Peter of Bruys and Henry of Lausanne. Peter resigned from the priesthood because he could not reconcile with the Scriptures the Catholic teachings of infant baptism, transubstantiation, prayers for the dead, and worship of the cross. In 1140, Peter paid for his beliefs with his life. Henry, a monk, spoke out against corrupt practices in the church as well as the unscriptural aspects of church liturgy. He was arrested in 1148 and spent the rest of his life in prison

17 About the time that Peter of Bruys was burned alive for daring to criticize the church, a person was born who would later have a powerful influence on the spread of Bible truth. His last name was Valdès, or Waldo. Unlike Peter of Bruys and Henry of Lausanne, he was a layman, but he valued God’s Word so much that he divested himself of his material goods and arranged for portions of the Bible to be translated into a language commonly spoken in southeastern France. Some were so thrilled to hear the Bible’s message in their own tongue that they too gave up their belongings and devoted their lives to sharing Bible truth with others. The church found this deeply disturbing. In 1184 these zealous men and women, later called the Waldenses, were excommunicated by the pope and banished from their homes by the bishop. This action actually served to spread the Bible’s message to other areas. Eventually, the followers of Waldo, Peter of Bruys, and Henry of Lausanne as well as other dissenters could be found in many parts of Europe. Other champions of Bible truth rose up in the centuries that followed: John Wycliffe (c. 1330-1384), William Tyndale (c. 1494-1536), Henry Grew (1781-1862), and George Storrs (1796-1879).

“THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT BOUND”

18 Try as they might, enemies of Bible truth have been unable to prevent its spread. “The word of God is not bound,” says 2 Timothy 2:9. In 1870 a group of sincere Bible students began searching for the truth. Their method of study? Someone would raise a question. They would discuss it. They would look up all related scriptures on the point, and then, when they were satisfied with the harmony of these texts, they would finally state their conclusion and make a record of it. Does it not reassure you to know that like the apostles and older men of the first century, those faithful men, our “spiritual ancestors” of the late 1800’s, were determined to align their beliefs solidly with God’s Word?

19 The Bible is still the foundation for our beliefs. With that in mind, the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses has chosen as our yeartext for 2012 the confident statement of Jesus: “Your word is truth.” (John 17:17) Since everyone who desires to gain God’s approval must walk in the truth, may all of us continually strive to be guided by God’s Word.

[Footnote]Valdès has sometimes been called Pierre Valdès or Peter Waldo, but his first name cannot be confirmed

Also it is good to know that man and woman in modern days came out of many different denominations of christendom, we took the name Jehovah’s witnesses after many left christendoms churches and the bible students understanding of the bible was clearly defined and they had cleansed themselves of false religious teachings by sticking to the bible. as time went on they made more adjustments as their understanding grew, for example jw used to celebrate christmas until we learned of the origins that are pagan and that even Jesus himself didnt celebrate it. This illustration of the wheat and the weeds was talking about the sowing of the truth and satan sowing lies. down through the ages both grew together until the time of the harvest (preaching and teaching work seperating people from the weeds the anointed) then the bringing in of the other sheep Jesus spoke about. Who are the other sheep? these are those who desire to know and worship Jehovah in truth and spirit and who stop touching the unclean things of satans world. john 10:16 matt 24:14.

 

 

some ramblings for today

Jeremiah 10:23 “I well know o Jehovah that man’s way does not belong to him, it does not belong to man who is walking to dirct his own step.”

Proverbs 4:19 “The way of the wicked is like the darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble.”

So people today without considering the bible to  much or at all are trying to decide right and wrong and how to solve problems, to make things work, morally, spritiually, economically, and even physically, like health care, how to solve the problem of everyone getting sufficient care.

It seems the more they try to solve problems the worse they make it, for example, the war on drugs, instead of making drugs hard to get they only made it more profitable and more dangerous. Obama care instead of making decent health care available to all they just now made it harder for anyone to afford decent care quickly, efficiently, and at lower costs. Unless that was their intent, keep making problems worse to keep justifying more taxes and more government intrusion and trespassing over people’s rights and liberties. They claimed that the war on terrorism is to make us safer to protect our liberties that the terrorists hate, but yet our liberty is eroding daily and our peace and security even faster.

Proverbs 6:12-19 speaks about what Jehovah hates, read those verses and see who do you see doing these things all the time both in positions of authority and among the common man whom you rub shoulders with daily?

Verse 12 says: “A useless and wicked man walks about with crooked speech.”

How often do those in positions of authority whether in politics, corporations, science, education, etc have been walking about with crooked speech?

People cannot seem to agree on right and wrong, truth or false, good or bad. So is it any wonder there are abortions, wars, poverty, broken marriages, poorly brought up children, and poor outcomes in health care for chronic illnesses like type 2 diabetes or auto immune disorders? Is it any wonder people are losing their conscience of right and wrong and are acting accordingly? Some people are so confused they become paralyzed and do nothing at all.

People are like the waves of the sea, they keep going which ever way the wind blows them. People lack true conviction because they cannot figure out what is right or wrong good or bad. And who are the winds (outside of Satan being responsible for stirring up the sea of rebellious mankind)?  They are what I like to call ‘creepy faces’ the ones who claim to and people look up to, to teach them what is the best way to solve the problems or handle different situations but who basically do not know what they are saying.  who are actually serving up poisoned waters (teachings that poison peoples minds and hearts bitter lies they drink up that moves them to do bad or harmful things. all the while thinking they are doing right when they are not.

Habakkuk explains just how I feel, probably how you feel too,

Hab 1:3-4, 13 just some of what he asks Jehovah. “Why do you make me witness wrongdoing and why do you tolerate oppression, why are destruction and violence before me? and why do quarreling and conflicts abound?” you see he was human just like you and me, he had the same feelings too about the injustice going on at that time which we see repeated again in our time.  VS 4 “so law is paralyzed and justice i never carried out for the wicked surround the righteous, that is why justice is perverted.”

Awe the world going from bad to worse. yet people still insist that they can reform the world into a peaceful and prospers place, but alas man has been trying to do that for thousands of years, the problem is not how to solve the problems that we see, most know what the solution is, we need to bring forth Justice and law and everyone must work to obey and protect it, but alas, people have become confused about what justice and law is. Why? Because they forget we are not designed to rule over ourselves without Devine guidance and protection. People are focusing to much value on human endeavors to solve problems, subdue wicked and bad people who interfere with the good people, they are in effect saying we worship man or the creature, rather than the creator.

This is why man will never solve the problems of  the world, because the wicked people and demons are the problem, along with our sinful natures they exploit for their own glory and enrichment. It is not the method of system it is the controller of the system that is the problem. Only Jehovah can remove the wicked (and decide who is wicked and not) and remove sin and death. ONly he has the wisdom, the knowledge, the authority, the balance of love, justice, power and wisdom that is supreme and we could never match ever.

Another thing i was ramling on about in my head is how many times we waste time, energy, money, and resist improvments under the false idea that we are somehow parasites on planet earth or that some are too greedy or selfish to be trusted with private property or running their own affairs (as long as they are not directly harming others and are allowing them the same freedom) but somehow that a group calling themselves government are some how more moral or something. Take the situation of the bonner bridge I have been reading about, the enviromentalists want it gone, but don’t say it in so many words, they just recite some fake enviromental damage they are doing having  the bridge there. so instead of using funds to build the new bridge they expected to build and funds were already set aside for it, they have to use it to fight ‘creepy faced’ enviromentalists who use taxpayer funds, hence they have unlimited spending and time to keep everyone else suspended and broke, to stop the rebuild of hte bridge because for some reason they want to cut off the outer banks to people.

So now they are suffering some serious safty issues of that bridge and they had to close it down for serious repairs, if they could of built the new bridge they wanted when they wanted it and had the funds they could dismantled the old bridge. instead of wasting time, and depleting their funds fighting every little frivilous lawsuit based on endangerd species act, the clean water acts and the you name it act. What is funny sad about the whole situation, is the bridge and people are not harming any crittor there, the enviromentalists are being paid by gov and corporations using taxpayer funds to literally dry up the economics of the outer banks so they can come in and make it part of the wildlife humans must keep out project for pennies on the dollar, basically robbing those people and the visitors who enjoy it.

it seems to me it is a land grab. using phoney science and enviromentalism  to do it. Get around due process as it were, and what is sad, is the government and courts are allowing it. Does anyone smell conspiracy to rob people of land, liberty, life and happiness? humm smells rotten to me. what did you just read? Jehovah hates lying, hands shedding innocent blood and accumulating riches that does not belong to him.

it is such a pretty and enjoyable place no wonder they want to steal it from the people outside of consitutional requirements. they can’t stand the fact the common folk actually get to enjoy nature, remember they consider us a plague to nature and should never touch it see it let alone enjoy it.  especially since they cannot do so because they don’t want to rub shoulders with us common folk, we are so dirty in their eyes. But remember the real owners sees is all and is making judgements and purposes to reclaim the earth for all who love him. isaiah 65:21-25

 

the pure language

language is what you and I have to communicate, when we can’t communicate nothing is accomplished not even understanding, peace, friendship or spiritural or technological or medical or progress in sciences and innovation that benefits us all. when we can’t communicate and wish to we need a interperter, so if I want to learn about spanish I ask someone who speaks it and can speak english too so they can teach me. wouldn’t you?

so if you want to understand the bible you must understand it’s language otherwise your lost and will not benefit from the bible. I have found understanding it’s language to be exciting because then you can see the physical manifestation of it’s words prophecies and fruitages of its counsel.I have found in my ministry that people are confused by alot of the defintions of words in the bible, and understanding the prophecies and symbolisms.

I want to share some terms and defintions of what we as Jehovah’s wintesses have learned through heavy research and some serious prayer.  it is important if you can to have more than one version of the bible, like king james or new world translation or new standard or some other bible you have confidence in to reference.

I found there is confusion due to the word “coming” which many are saying they are waiting for Jesus second coming. some translations interpret the word “parasia” not sure of the exact spelling as coming, which actually means of the age or presence, matt 24:3 which conveys the idea of a long period of time not a coming and quick departure. He gave us a long list of things to look for and part of this included him casting satan to the earth before armegeddon which means he has to stay in heaven to do this. if you read this list you will see that much work has to be done before Christs millianium reign can begin.

What is a Kingdom? anyone going to look up this word in a dictionary and not take my word for it? a kingdom is a government, and a government has subjects, a ruler, and administrator of the kingdoms purposes. So I ask you how can you have a government in your heart? Paul spoke about being part of this government as he said he ran successfully and was looking forward to going to heaven to be a coruler with christ. Rather Jesus referred himself as in their midst he was future king and was in the people’s midst at that time not that a kingdom is in our hearts. REvelation 14:1-3. Dan 2:1-44, Revelation 21:3-4 matthew 6:9-10

I will keep the rest brief, here are some interesting terms and defintions to help you get more out of your bible reading.

waters: people in general, information or facts or lack there of, rebellious humans, isaiah 57:20, jude 4-13. Ephesians 5:26 Revelation 17:1,15

I know there is confusion too about the scripture at 2 peter 3:10-13 which describes the heavens and earth being made new and the old being destroyed. now remember if you read something in the bible it must not conflict with other scriptural references somewhere else in the bible, because if you read ecclesiates 1:4 it says the earth will remain forever, and psalms 46 talks about the earth changing and the mountains toppling into the sea (now i ask you do you think the literal mountains toppled into the sea?) one part says he raised his voice and the earth melted, so i ask you again did the earth go anywhere did it melt? also genesis 11:1 spoke of hte earth as having one language and one set of words,does the earth have a language? don’t people have a language and sets of words? this new earth is rightous people, earth that is destroyed is wicked people. Remember the scritpure in revelation about the sea being no more? they used this phrase in the movie the titanic when they were all hanging onto the priest guy and he was quoting the scriptures in a prayer,he said the sea is no more, remember isaiah said in 57:20 the wicked are like the sea that is unable to calm down, it is this sea the scripture is talking about. AWWW dont you just love bible language.

there is alot more like rocks, caves, ships, burning mountain, water turned to blood, and serpents seed, new jerusalum (most of these are found in revelation. Plagues is another. I would go over them now but I do not want to overwhelm everyone and I am tired, fighting off a stupid sinus infection and it is taking antibiotics a few days to really get it cleared up. right now suffering a terrible headache to go with it. but hopfully for those who love the bible this will be interesting reading the sited scriptures you all can go to jw.org too for more.

 

thanks to my followers

thanks to my followers who like my blog, I am glad I am putting stuff on here that isn’t boring.  my brother is really sweet telling me how much he likes my blog and consider the information so enjoyable he brought it up on his own, thanks Jeff. your just to sweet to me.

I am glad your surgury went so well,  as for my other followers thanks again, remember I am not a genius (as per my brothers comment), I am just a mirror. what is a mirror and why would I compare myself as such?

I thought about this today, a mirror reflects whatever light hits it and images it reflects. as a new born baby we are born with just the basics of hunger, ability to learn things, and natural fears of falling etc, these basics we are all born with, a clean slate as it were otherwise.

so for me I want to reflect the qualitis and knowledge and wisdom of Jehovah, he is the smartest person in the universe and the wisest ever and i would call him a suppperrrrrrrrrr genius!!! (ever watch wily coyote and the roadrunner?)so what does this have to do with mirrors? well we are all a clean slate we can decide what light and images we want to reflect for others to see (and even see ourselves too). we choose who we want to reflect, imitate and show the world. Think about the expressions, you have a bright outlook on life, your a ray of sunshine when I am down (or as a song says I have sunshine on a cloudy day, when it is cold outside I have the month of may) your a real downer to be around, or some one woke up on the wrong side of the bed, or like the poor donkey on winnie the poo with a dark cloud falling him around and his face reflects gloominess.

So who do you reflect? how do others perceive you? (well those who know you well)who do you want to reflect? I seen some guy wanted to reflect tigers, why? dont know but his whole body was tattoed stripps his face and he had his teeth done with fangs. so what does such a person reflect about the kind of person they are? why do he admire tigers so much to want to be one? (to reflect as a mirror that animal?)only he and those around him can answer that one. but if I run into someone like that my first reation would be like weird and then I would cringe away from him because tigers are predators. Simply because he is reflecting what he is worshipping.

So any reflection on my part of showing forbearnace or kindness or understanding is simply because I worship Jehovah. I am going to say this and hope it doesn’t sound weird but I think Jehovah is awesome and  find it puzzling when people do not want to learn about him after you hear so many positive comments by non witnesses about the witnesses. They really admire jw are honest on the job, care about their neighbors, take jesus word seriously about preaching and teaching door to door and home bible studies (which are free by the way)honest in all their dealings, do not leach off others, do not steal and are kind to people. And refuse to take up arms against their fellow man even at the threat of death for disobedience to governments on this point. Always remember if someone has a gut reation of seemingly lack of desire to kill others for the sake of protecting america from some enemy, if a witness wont kill another person in another country who might kill them (so the gov tries to sell people on)they wont kill you. So think about that for a moment. You wont have to worry about a JW murdering you during times of chaos (think rwanda).

So we have a choice whom do you want to reflect? Is it a person who deserves your admiration? Are the qualities you want virtuous and kind or logical or of sound wisdom or reason.?

christendom indicted

howdy gang, or shall I say fellow living souls on the land, or maybe living on terra or the place called earth, language is a funny thing don’t you think? This past few days I have been doing research on the book of isaiah, reading it and getting more information about it, came across some fitting information that fits our day perfectly. Isaiahs day mirrors our day almost perfectly. How? well he prophesized during the time of Uzziah,Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, which was a good king.

Little backround, he prophesized during a time of political unrest, religous hypocrisy, judicial corruption and oppression of the poor. Even during reigns of faithful kings like Jotham alters of false gods could still be seen on many hilltops. (does this description ring a bell with anyone? lol) Under unfaithful kings the situation was even worse. Can you imagine what life was like then and how one could manage to avoid being eaten (figuratively) and still manage a fairly decent life? The international situation was gloomy too, (kind of reminescent of today don’t you think?) Moab, Edom and philista stood meanacing at Judahs borders. Hum, iraq or syria anyone? humm I have heard how technology has made the earth a small place, makes sense.

Furthur north syria threatened Judahs peace and cruel Assyria was on the lookout to expand its power, it had taken the northern nation of isreal in Isaiahs time, and almost destroyed Judah. Jerusalum was like the last stand for the Isrealites as a nation. Assyria was the second world power of bible history, even tho there were other world powers the bible focused only on those that affected God’s chosen people, his worshippers.

The situation in Isaiahs time is very similar to conditions today, in our time human leaders have turned their backs on Jehovah and his enthroned King Jesus Christ, (speaking of those in christendom) in fact they have turned thier backs on the bible period, it’s principles and laws and truths. The leader of Christendom have deceived their flocks, such leaders claim to serve God but in truth most of them promote the gods of the world. (enviromentalism? capitalism? Communism?sunlike leaders?sports stars?promoinent individuals? Philosphers? Science? Self? United nations? Money? Entertainment? etc) In one place after another Christendom religion has been involved in wars and civil strife that features ethnic cleansing and other horrors. Rather than take a stand for bible morality many chruches are either winking at or actively supporting immoral practices like fornication (just watch the movies on tv and see what I mean) and homosexuality. 

 Isaiah 1:4: “woe to the sinful nation the people heavy with error and evildoing seed ruinous sons, they have left Jehovah they have treated the Holy One of Isreal with disrespect they have turned backwards.”

Things were so bad Jehovah gave furthur descriptions of how he viewed them, Isa 1:10: “Hear the word of Jehovah you dictators of Sodom give ear to the law of our God you people of gomorrah.” The Isrealites were doing so many detestable things, you can read it yourself in the rest of these beginning chapters. in fact He told them he was tired of their festivels and sacrifices, their prayers, that their hands were full of blood shed, but vs 16 and 17 tells them what is required to get redeemed, “Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean, remove the badness of your dealings from in front of my eyes, cease to do bad, learn to do good, search for justice, set right the oppressor, render judgement for the fatherless boy and plead the cause of the widow.” They needed to repent turn around and stop doing what they were doing, change their attitude and start doing what Jehovah says is right and just.

verses 18-20 shows how if people become right with God he would forgive in a very large way and their sins he would remember no more. The rest of the chapter deals with how God prophesized there would be a people who would come to love him and serve him faithfully and bring glory to him. Chapter 2 continues on with this theme what is amazing to me is while I heard how the united nations is really anti bible anti god by most of the members they still managed to put part of a bible quote on the building (the second half)

Isaiah 2:4, “And he will certainly render judgement among the nations and set matters striaght respecting many peoples and they will have to beat their swords into plowshears and their spears into pruning shears, nation will not lift up sword against nation neither will they learn war anymore.”

While I agree with stopping wars, desperately so, I found it disheartening that they put this on the building fooling bible lovers of the land of christendom teaseing them that the UN would bring this about. And I find it very shameful to say the least that the leaders of christendom, especially religious leaders, advocating that this was Gods kingdom on earth when it was first founded in 1945. What blasphmy! they have just implicated Jehovah as a party to violence and massive blood shed and slavery, Wow, and all this without a trial or fair hearing, talk about unjust due process.

In fact the judges of isreal and the leaders were so bad Jehovah declared them to be the scummy dross that comes off of the valuable silver when cleaned, hence he declared them to be discarded in due time.

Isaiah 2 also talks about how in the later part of the days, which is our day, Gods worship would be restored and many willing ones would not only go up to his mountain (elevated worship over all other religions) but that they would invite still others to join (preaching and teaching work) And they would learn his ways and his laws, they would not look ot mans governments to solve the problems we have nor to give the laws we need to have true peace and security.

Jehovah reestablished pure worship and united those who yearned to worship him, this was foretold in isa 2:1-4 and Micah 4:1-3. in 1919 the anointed remnant (anointed as in to be corulers with christ) began a bold worldwide witnessing campaign that raised Jehovahs worship on high, overshadowing christendom (always remember christendom is not the same thing as christianty)which has been derelict in her duties in feeding Jehovahs sheep with pure waters of truth. IN fact revelation calls the waters of christendom wormwood.  In the 1930’s it became evident that the other sheep were being gathered in (other sheep jesus spoke about in John 10:16 that had a earthly hope, (psalms 37)Matt 5:5).

These thoughts are probably new to alot of people, that is okay, that is what research and study is all about, gaining more understanding. You know it is funny  I have read Isaiah many times in my systematic study over the years covering about 3 or 4 chapters of the bible every night (or most nights)but each time i do so I learn or relearn something new. it helps with connecting the dots too. Another little factoid about Isa 2:1-4, wars, this is the one constant human kind has had to deal with, it is a plague, a very catagious plague that spreads like a virus from one generation to the next. no generation has ever been free from wars except for very short periods of time.

I read this statistic i didnt know, According to world watch magezine during the 2000 years prior to the 20th century it took an average of 50 years for one million people to die in wars, during this century the length of time it took on average for a million people to die in war was one year. Amazing if you ask me.

I was just thinking as I typed this, imagine how much progress has been postponed because of war, think about it a moment, do you suppose if the scientists who developed technology and weapons for wars would spend their talents and skills into peaceful endeavors what would have happend by now? it is not hard to imagine we would of been able to beam ourselves from here to another country in seconds, (like star trek?) we could of eradicted hunger, solve most pollution problems, we would not be driving using combustion engines, probably would of developed energy sources off the grid, free to all, that would run on water or (I was told that in times past the cars could run on alcohol you make yourself) so maybe prohibition of alcohol was due to this and not because people got drunk and they decide to go ahead and lift the ban once gasoline was a  energy source for cars built specifically for it? Imagine having a trillion dollars a year just in the usa for innovating and solving pollution problems making life easier and cheaper for everyone? a trillion dollars, that is a lot of dough, much could of been accomplished with that much money, not counting the billions spent on wars on poverty, drugs and the like.

So do anyone of you out there really believe the rulers who claim humanitarian ideals are for real? do their actions match their words? if they really cared about the poor, the downtrodden would they bomb the heck out of their countrys water systems, food systems, roads, bridges and their houses and innocent bystanders in the name of saving them? Do they really want to save them or are they just interested in robbing them? Just look at the rico laws, (look up rico) they have used every excuse in the name of justice to trample on justice costing billions in lost homes, lives, freedom, property, jobs, all in the name of saving you and me from criminals.  Isaiah is not a out of date book, I am learning this more and more, Romans 15:4 “For all things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction that through our endurance and through the comfort of the scriptures that we might have hope.”

The information of Isaiah is important otherwise it would not be in the bible. So if you decide to read it yourself which I encourage highly, remember some of it applied to isreal but much applies to our days as it is full of prophecy of the last days we are in, and some of the things in there are symbolic, like mountains representing governments, trees, prominent individuals like leaders, both poltical and religious, things like that. Personality traits represented as certain types of animals, like lions and wolves being predatory on their fellow man, or vicious that sorta thing. Lambs representing meekness and mildness, sometimes depending on context Eygpt represents all governments of the world, as we know that Eygpt is mentioned in revelation but we also know that Eygpt as a world power declined thousands of years ago.   As I do more research Iwill post more factoids about it, doing this not only helps others but it helps me remember what I learned and read, as I have gotten older I have notice a problem with recall especially when my hormones are at low ebb. Yikes!
