my dinos part one

Just so you know I used some artistic license on some of these, just for fun, since no one really knows what they looked like as far as colors and patterns are concerned.

EPSON MFP image

my spinosarus, they say he was a fisherbeast, based on the skull shape I tend to agree looks like dolphins beaks, long narrow with pointed teeth for grabbing fish. they probably ate other things like small mammals or reptiles  if they could get them, like great blue herons do today.

EPSON MFP image

I forget what dino this guy is, but aint he pretty? looks almost like he has a hat on.

EPSON MFP image

This guy has been drawn in many ways some were very rhino like with plates and heaviness all around some drew him more lightly with smooth skin, hence more horse like. this guy was said to be able to gallop also.

EPSON MFP image

I used artistic license on this one because this animal just so reminds me of a very large horse rhino cross. so I made him to be such. lol

EPSON MFP image

don’t know what to make of this guy, gorgonops, he just to strange for words. almost like a cat crossed with a reptile.

EPSON MFP image

I like this guy because he is just so decorated with horns.

EPSON MFP image

this guy is called a prosaurapod  he is a bit embellished here, just for fun.

EPSON MFP image

protosuchus or something like that, ran on all fours was said to be one of the first large predators before the tyrannoasaurs came on the scene, I think, not sure, just was cool looking.

EPSON MFP image

hadrosarus  they got pretty large something like 7 tons or something like that, just a big herbivore all around. they think the horn on it’s head was for making calling sounds for communication and possibly self defense.

EPSON MFP image

was going for a scutesuckus, really bony plated and bumped, semi erect legs, out to the side, forgot what that is called,

so these are just some of my dinos/prehistoric crittors. I have more and will do more just for fun, as long as it is cold out will be spending time drawing otherwise will postpone them for later when the weather is really bad.

 

 

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.

wish they used such methods ot teach principles in school then it wouldnt of sucked like it did.

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!

 

Hi y’all, how is it going for you today?

today I was just thinking, well I kind of think like this everyday really, I have noticed in all my travels over the internet, which is the only way to fly when you cant afford to physically do so, that people are concerned about so many happenings such as agenda 21, national health care, drug wars, terrorism, privacy invasions both in person and on person if you know what I mean, property rights being violated on a regular basis, a police state being overbearing in their enforcements of thousands and thousands and thousands of rules passing as laws and the like. Not to mention the dealings in foreign nations like syria and eygpt in recent days.

Did you know these things were prophesized by Jesus? did you know aged john was given information about our day? Le me splain, lol, just kidding, if you read revelation 1:3 it says this occurs during the lords day (our day) and in signs (symbolisms and the like). The first occurance to happen at the start of these last days Jesus spoke about in matt 24, luke 21, mark 13 was when jesus was given the kingship over God’s Kingdom in 1914. Will get into 1914  a little later on. maybe another post. But anyway, Jesus opened up the seals containing the four horsement, Jesus was on the first horse by the way, a white horse (representing rightous warfare) the following horses not so much.(red horse warfare, black famine, pale, premature death)  So far so good, this is in harmony with matt 24, mark 13 and luke 21. (remember the principle where there are two witnesses to a matter it stands firm) can’t remember where the scripture is, deuteronemy I believe.

This is that start of the pangs of distress jesus spoke about. We surly can relate to pangs of distress can’t we? These problems are just part of the sign jesus gave, revelation goes thorough details about it (and even prophets isaiah and ezekiel and jeremiah give some details on it too, later on them.

it helps immensly to understand the symbols, 7-headed wild beast respresents the world powers in succession, eygpt, assyria (which were really bad creeps by they way they liked to torture their victims to create terror in hearts of their enemies kind of like today don’t you think?)babylon, media and persian dual power, greece, then rome then today the anglo america world power. this corresponds to the image of daniel 2. The bowls of plagues, represents Jehovahs judgement and anger towards aspect of this world, the sun meaning unrightous rulers, the waters of rivers and streams wisdom of this world, the teachings, wormwood means poison in this case poisoning of the mind and heart of the plagued waters of bitter lies that cause man to become polluted by propaganda meant to control them to commit horrendous acts against their fellows.

the bowl into the earth, the anger towards the seemingly stable organizations like government, banking, military industrial complex, etc, who are guilty of atrocities and breaking his laws on justice, just weights and measures, against stealing and defrauding their fellows.

Also the one I like is the one about the bowls into the sun, this results in the oppression of gov over people that you seeing going on, the scorching of mankind, makes me think of the term i got burned, which means you got defrauded or harmed unjustly in some way whether physically, mentally, financially etc. It explains this oppression causing people to form protests and groups to counter them. (another type of warfare here)

Also the sea being no more is sea of rebellious mankind, isaiah explains how the wicked are like the sea that is being tossed that bring up seaweed and  mire (unclean things in Gods eyes) isaiah 67:20-21) Genesis 11 shows that sometimes the earth means mankind in bible prophecy. Also the wild beast comes out of the sea (of rebellious mankind) and the four winds that stir up the vast sea (mankind in restless and agitated state) is the dragon, satan. he stirs up people to form governments that he ends up controling.

What is the purpose of understanding revelation? It is to help honest hearted ones to see where we are in the stream of time (the spiritural ark is being built and is almost done as we speak) so as to help awaken to people to the times we live in and make the needed changes to be able to get on this ark. Remember noah didn’t just sit around when told about the flood he had work to do and so do we.

Many scoff at this last days stuff and devine intervention, why do you suppose that is? could it be that wormwood I just mentioned poisoning the waters they drink in deeply (teachings)? Do you suppose most scoffed at noah? Did they not scoff at lot when he told his future sons in laws about God’s judgement against sodom and gomorrah? They looked at him as a man who was joking, I am guessing here that because they were to be his future sons in laws they would of known enough about him to know he probably was not joking, and they lived in a immoral and violent city this should have been enough of a clue that lot maybe on to something better check it out, no they just laughed.

People who just throw off warnings without investigating for themselves if it might be true end up hurting themselves in the long run. How many ignore safty warnings and get lost maimed or killed? For example seen a part about a guy who ignored a warning about a great white shark sighting that day but he went swimming anyway and you can guess what happend a few minutes after you got into the water.  Or people who go hiking into wilderness areas alone with minimal supplies, or people who get into trouble because of ignoring warnings?

we sometimes can be our own worst enemy, trouble is we keep sneaking up on ourselves and keep getting pinched, and we don’t see it coming. lol.

So you see what people are seeing are the symptoms of the end times, people get bits and peices of the picture but don’t see the whole picture, you need Jehovah’s help to do so, he gives holy spirit to those who obey him as ruler, this spirit helps us to understand what he wants us to know and to apply it in everyday life even in areas that seem unrelated. He helps us discern from his word why good mans efforts to make things better get sabtoged, why these good intentions always go bad, why governments become more and more tyrannical and lawless and why people cannot rid the earth of poverty, wars, enviromental damage, even tho most people who are asked want these things to be solved, it explains that we have several things working against us, satan for sure, he doens’t love us. ever met a person who will chew you up and spit you out with no qualms about it? or people who are so arrogant that your like WoW! or people who are just so illogical in their thinking that you just cannot believe it, or those who lie to you or people who act as a friend but when a situation arises for advantage they turn on you? (had this happen to me once as a kid) or have you ever known someone who your just so disgusted with because they seem to just not care about anyone but themselves? Then imagine someone like that on some serious steroids, and you get some idea of what satan is like.

This is why satan is pictured as a dragon, dragon means swallower or swallow down, hence the idea of one who preys on others. We have our own imperfections and limitations too getting in the way,and of course we have death, really sucks to have someone die when they are actually making a dent in the problems of today.

So you see the worsing problems is the darkness before the dawn scenario, the worst it gets the closer to better we are, the closer to the judgement that right hearted people long for, relief from sin death and satan and oppressive rulerships. Those who avail themselves of the provisions God has provided which i will post another time can be a part of the new earth (remember earth symbolizes people) under the new heavens (heavens many times represents governments or rulership) where righteousness is to dwell as 2 peter 3:13 shows. for more info you can always visit jw.org.

Thanks all for visiting my neck of the woods, now if I can just figure out which way out of these woods are I am getting hungry, lol.
