righteous vs unrightous laws

 

northcarolinaouterbanks 042

howdy folks, today is a pretty warm sunny day, last night was like pouring all night, man we have gotten way more rain then typical. anyway I wanted to ask a question, do you know what a law is? can you tell the difference between a good law and bad one. For me, I did not look it up by the way, a law is a conduct or action one must take or not take in any given circumstances. Of course most will say they know what a law it but really? do you really know? can you recognize a counterfeit law when you see one? righteous laws vs unrightous.

of course it goes beyond  that, these rules are  to be based on sound moral principles, like the mosaic law for example, when you read it (it has only 600 rules or procedures)if you think about the underlying principle of the requirement you understand why it is important to follow these rules/requirements. they had detailed requirments when dealing with possible cases of contagious disease like leprosy, but in the procedure panic was not allowed and the person banished until it was certain what the condition was, in the mean time they separated you from the population. But they still had human contact albeit limited. what principles here were involved? One is while still protecting the people, the individual involved was treated with dignity, (thus the law of love of thy neighbor was intact) and if required they were banished from the camp, but not out of sight they still received necessities of life it is not like they throw you away to starve or wander. Thus justice was served (protecting the people to avoid pandemic) love was intact they still receive care Or the case of murder in the city. they had procedures too, such as there was required 2 witnesses to the event and the judges were required to search thoroughly into the matter, before sentence is given. if a person was murdered but no witnesses the judges were to do a through search to find what information they could and if they could not find the culprit they were to approach Jehovah with a sacrifice and indicate to him they did their best and thus avoid community blood guilt.

.the second principle here is the sanctity of life, respecting all life, first you could not be put to death on hearsay of one person, they had to be credible witnesses second the judges had to do a through search to verify what facts they could, (such as if anyone was holding animosity against the victim stuff like that) thus justice is upheld, no quick sentences were done, the victims life was held in esteem, those involved were given justice once the murderer turns out to be a deliberate murderer, he was stoned by the 2 witnesses involved first before the whole camp pelted them with stones, hence justice was served for the victim and families, the people realized the seriousness of life of others  not just their own, justice was served in that the murderer was not preserved in a jail to be housed and fed at the expense of the people and the cost of keeping them there so they don’t escape and hurt others. Also justice was served because if it is found out the witnesses lied, then they too were to suffer the same penalty their victim did, hence people were severly discouraged from lying against someone they hated to have them put to death under false witness charges. Thus law and justice was honored and the people felt secure.

Now lets examine today, today if you look at the federal registry of laws you would be blown away. please do not let those books fall on you because they will crush you to a thin piece of paper size. Even congress and bureacrates involved do not know what all the rules are or even understand them. it is like they just pass a bunch of laws for the fun of it to cover every aspect of life to be used against anyone they wish. The religious leaders of jesus day did the same thing. Some how people get this idea if it is written down in a book and has a stamp of passing by a group of people calling themselves government then it is in fact real  law. Nope, not even close.

By the use of sophistry and semantics among other tactics they have convinced people what the laws are and that they actually think they understand it when in fact they do not. Thse laws fall outside the realm of justice, moral high ground, or even common sense sometimes. here is a example. They banned raw milk, in most states it is illegal (notice I did not say unlawful) to grow it and sell it to the public, your allowed for personal use and your family, but don’t sell it or even give it away to others. Now think long and hard about this one, seems trival but think, what moral high ground do they have for doing this? Is justice served by this? Think carefully again, what purpose is this rule? whom does it serve? you? me? someone else?

another requirement, licensing, You need a license to do just about anything now a days. you need a license to use your car on the road you paid for private use, to sell drugs you need a license (drug companies) you need a license to be a doctor, to be a lawyer, to be a judge, to be whatever you can think of. Now think, what is a license, according to the law dictionary it is permission to do something that would be illgal (there is that word again)without it.  So begs the question what is legal? is that same thing as lawful? I am inclined to think not. otherwise why not just say unlawful? What underlying principle or morality is involved with licensing? Does it fall under the realm of just being alive? or is it something else. For example your using your car to go get groceries, is that a private or commercial activity. you tell me, what do you think? Are you buying and selling or are you just buying? are you buying with intent to consume or to resell? Makes a difference.

Now why even bring licensing up? The reason is this, licensing takes away exercising of rights that are yours simply by being born, changing the field, your now saying your involved in a privilege commercial activity like driving a cab for profit or using trucks for profit which requires a license,  or giving legal advice (not lawful advice) to people, your now exercising a privilege something you do not have a right by birth to do, use the community resources beyond normal rights, the infrastructure beyond exercise of rights to just travel to work or get groceries or to remind a judge as a lawyer what the law is stuff like that. So what basic moral principle is involved here? is there some moral high ground that requires you to have a license to get into your car and ride on a road you paid for? Or do all these requirments fall into the realm of contract law?

But all this is way more then just license requirements, it boils down to property rights, if you give over your rights to the government (without realizing it) you have basically given(or they just took) them your property to manage, your life, liberty and property, now belongs to them, you have become a ward of the state, all without your even knowing it. Is it morally right for them to do such a thing without notifying you upfront and without option of opting out without having your head chopped off? no it is not. licensing is basically managing the property they have been given and they will act according to their own will and interests, like a creepy executor of a will or something. That is why they keep doing civil forfeiture (theft) and treaties and water acts and all that other stuff to take property they deem not being taken care of properly ..  So would I believe such tactics are righteous and just in Gods eyes? No, not even for a second. They aer basically using what jesus said comes from a bad heart, wicked reasonings, they are coveting and stealing, they are using the cover of law or authority to do it. There is even a term for it color of law which there is a real legal definition in a law dictionary. counterfeit law as it were. Sometimes there is a legit contract but that is another subject, I am speaking of hidden contract, dishonest covering, pretend contracts.

Why do governments always do the wrong things when they have the opportunity to bring peace and prosperity to people including themselves by using their offices for good? Why do they resort to dishonest ways ot take from others? if they do not take it out right by use of a gun? There aer several reasons for this, one jeremiah 10:23says, man cannot direct is own step (let alone someone elses) second Satan is actually the owner of human governments (luke 4:4-8)third power attracts the most basest of humans to it, who have no desire to do right or to make life more just but to enrich their own coffers. Forth, those who are honested hearted usually don’t last long in power because of those beastly humans next to them, they either become corrupt themselves or they leave or they are murdered or discredited by these creeps.

Is all of this new? nope, Solomon said there is nothing new under the sun, all rulers do this, some are just  more wicked then others, some actually do good for their people, but the reality is they are overwhelmed by the job, the people they have to deal with and dealing with the masses of ignorant and disobedient people too who are easily riled up. no matter how sincere they cannot remedy this situation. so unrightous laws become the norm, they tyrannize over the people destroy their spirits (just like the religious leaders of jesus day they destroyed the people with their legalism or traditions posing as law) Luke 11:46 speaks of this.

And they destroy incentive to make things better, to innovate ways to make life more pleasant, to become more moral more just in their treatment of others and themselves. Things get out of hand for people in government because they have dug a pit for themselves and in order to avoid it they have to push and push the people hard (in terms of laws to control them and in taxation to feed off of them) to avoid the collapse they inevitably caused by their unrightous laws and their enforcement by the gun (economic or physical). Take Ron Paul for example he tried and tried to help people in government start to care more about right and wrong then about their own nests, but to no avail, there was the most honest man I know of in government who actually did what your supposed to do,step down out of power otherwise your guilt remains.

you see God has moral laws for a reason it is not like he goes around stifling people’s happiness or freedom with laws. Moral laws are just as sure as physical laws. break the law of gravity without a parachute then you die. Physical laws are usually obvious to people as the consequences are immediate or almost immediate. Moral laws take a little longer to show itself when you break them. These moral laws are there to protect the hearts and  minds of people to become safe to be around, immoral people are not safe to be around or work with or associate with, they are dangerous, they can harm you physically mentally emotionally or economically and most times they do. They do not allow moral laws to restrain them, thus they must change or become a liability to peace and prosperity and they must go.  God’s righteous laws uplift you the psalmist wrote how he loved God’s law it was his daily concern.  The bible indicates Gods laws are a protection. And do not look at law as a bad thing the whole bible is called “THE LAW”too and those who read it know it is not a rule book. It is a book of reasoning, of human experiences, of teachings, of reward, punishments of actions and reactions, of how humans changed the landscape how God responded to those who loved or hate him stuff like that. it is a book of instruction, it is better than any textbook I ever read once I understood it.

The trouble comes when man tried to circumvent Gods sovereignty (his right to rule as the creator of all life)by going outside the boundaries of his principles of morality. They tried to decide right and wrong according to their own desires. Thus the birth of unrightous laws, sure God tell us to obey them as long as they do not conflict with Gods directions, but that is not because these laws are good but because he is good and wants us to avoid problems, he knows the heart of men and he knows the unrigthous governments and how they behave (hence they are symbolized as wild beasts in revelation blood thristy monsters)he is protecting us from unnecessary hardships by disobeying unrigthous laws. Governements who do not care about right and wrong as much as they care about keeping peace and keeping the profits rolling in and keep the other governments at bay using military tactics,  will not care about your rights or protect them if it conflicts with that agenda.

But Jehovah does give us a peaceful way to protest bad laws and their enforcers, neutrality. by remaining neutral, avoiding get rich schemes avoiding immoral behavior, such as gambling, or tax evasion or lying to get what you want, avoiding political or social actions at reform, etc, one shows by their conduct they do not condone human rulership over man by men, that they advocate for Gods kingdom that they love Gods laws because we understand this is the source of true freedom and rights protections. These neutral souls extend themselves to help others to get in line for the best government the universe has ever seen (the physical  universe not the spirit one)or will ever see. They show by their conduct and love for God and neighbor that we want human governments removed once and for all not just reformed to make it more tolerable.

Does this seem harsh to anyone? that we want god to destroy wicked people who rule over their fellow man? well is it wrong to want to see a deliberate murderer punished for their injustice? is it wrong to make a theif pay back 7 times as much as he stole even if he stole because of hunger? is it wrong to make people accountable for their actions that harm the life and property of others? should we just give them a pass because we are just very nice and screamish about seeing wicked people pay for their crimes when the punishment is so harsh? does God get joy out of it? if you read the bible in Ezekiel chapter 9 read the whole thing, God explains why he destroys this people of his (those in a covenant relationship with him)in full detail. don’t you think it is loving that not only is  God warning wicked people through the massive preaching and teaching jw provide, but he cares about the victims of wicked people too? does the wicked get more consideration after they prove themselves unreformable by choice, then the victims? Should we give people passes all the time and forget the justice for the victims? you see God has no choice if the wicked refuse to be reformed they must go and there is no third destination they can be put like a jail planet, no they must go. Jehovah cannot tolerate wickedness in his universe. and lastly should satan and the demons be given a pass as they are the most wicked of all, just because we feel sorry for them? this is how pyschopaths work they make you feel pity for them, make you think of them as victims rather then perpatrators of wrong. then they slice your throat when your not looking. satan and the demons knew full well what they were doing and deserve destruction.

so another question remains do you trust God’s motives as pure and unselfish, which begs another question can he trust you to live in his paradise for all eternity to not harm your fellow man or the animals? so he has to be able to trust you(because your endowed with free will and can change your mind), as much as you need to trust him. you see in this world there is no trust, trust is dangerous because most people including government and average joes are untrustworthy. tht is why your taught at an early age do not trust strangers, now it is do not trust relatives too by not being alone with them when your a little boy or girl. you cannot trust anyone except those who love god and God himself. either you become a trustworthy person yourself or your a danger to others. the choice is up to you. Serve God and live, or not and not live. paradise is for righteous people, not psychopathic wicked people. So be honest which are you? unrightous rights stealing laws will not be allowed. if you remember only one thing about this post is JW.org, check it out, it shows you how Gods way of doing things is the most loving and just way to live and it also shows how we can cope with daily problems how to make our marriage work how to raise children and how to deal with day to day living answers the big questions  most ask sometime in their lives. because what you read in the bible is just enough not tomuch and not to little hence oppression will be a thing of the past.

 

 

 

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!

 

what was the original sin

Hi there, how is everyone doing today? hope it is sunny there for it is rainy here, but looks like the sun might just come out. For anyone interested and who probably have wondered what was the original sin that got Adam and Eve evicted from the garden of eden (hint: it wasnt sex otherwise how can they have babies as God commanded them to have them).

Adam and Eve had everything they needed to be happy, they had a beautiful garden of pleasure (Eden) they have enough to eat had wonderful activities together, no wickedness at all, no fear of death, no sickness as they would never die or get sick. All the commands God gave them were positive commands, what to do, not what not to do, except one prohibition. this prohibition would not cause any hardship of any kind. They could eat of all the trees of the garden and no doubt it had trees of every kind with some of the most delicious fruit imaginable. Their actions and thoughts would naturally be pure and clean and they were happy, they had not depression, or guilt or fear of the future. The garden had everything that was delightful to the eye and the animals were at peace and man had no fear of them harming him (imagine swimming with a great white shark under such circumstances).

What would happen if they disobeyed the prohibition? They would die, did anyone ever read they would die and go to heaven anywhere in the bible at all? Did they understand death? Yes, animals still died, they knew they were only around a short time, and that they didn’t exist before, they understood death very well, other wise Jehovah would be unjust to punish them with something they didn’t understand and far be it for the true God to act unjustly.

But some creepy angel decided (by meditating on it a while) that he wanted to be worshipped, a very selfish desire, he coveted something that didn’t belong to him and he had no right to, he developed a big head basically, so to get what he coveted, he decided to deceive eve (why not adam?)first, because she was the newer of the two and less experienced. So he twisted what God had said, and as a result she believed him over Jehovah who had never abused her, misled her or lied to her. And Adam followed suit and the rest is history.

But why did taking a fruit of a tree result in such a miserable world we live in, it was such a small disobedient act?  Well this sin reflected this lack of faith and love for the creator, it was a rebellion of self determination or independance of God, sin means to miss the mark, the standard Jehovah set for man, a limit where man could go and go no furthur morally speaking. today you see the results of everyone deciding what is right and wrong, you see the controversy, abortion is right, no it is wrong, homosexulaity is right, no wrong, obesity is a disease, no it is a moral failing, children born disabled is punishement for the parents for doing some wrongs (heard some politician guy say this) So what was so special about this tree of knowledge of good and bad?

I will quote someone who backs up what I understand it to be, THE JERUSALUM BIBLE in footnote on Genesis 2:17 comments concerning the tree of knowledge.  “This knowledge is a privelege which God reserves to himself and which by sinning is to lays hands on, 3:5, 22, it dos not mean ominiscience which fallen man does not possess, nor is it moral discrimination for unfallen man had it and God could not refuse it to a rational being, it is the power of deciding for himself what is good and what is evil and of acting accordingly, a claim to complete moral independence by which man refuses to recognize his status as a created being, the first sin was an attack on God’s soverignty a sin of pride.”

I have told some this and they didn’t believe that the tree represented God’s right to rule, to set the standards of what is right and wrong. Who can you think of is better qualified to decide what is good for man or not? I would put my happiness in his hands before any human wouldnt you? Heck even before I listen to myself, I can’t be trusted to rule over myself successfully, (sounds weird to say I know).  Surly satan would like you to think human wisdom is the way to true freedom, but he lies. If you dont worship Jehovah your worshipping satan and that is how he likes it. his biggest weapon against man is deception, making people believe they are serving God but are not. sad really, The apostle paul said you can recognize a servant of God or not by their actions. What are they doing? what is their attitude say about war? mans governments? marriage? honesty? poor people? foreigners? violence? How do they act towards others? what is their attitude and actions in the workplace? What do they like to talk about? Do they indicate to you that they love God or not?

Are they honest in the workplace? do they steal, or lie, or do they have fits of anger over small things? do they respect the laws of their country? do they go by the bibles principles when there is a difference of opinion like issues of abortion, or medical treatments or care of animals and children? Do they treat others like they want to be treated. do they respect the privacy of others? do they meddle in other people’s personal affairs? Do they think it is okay to lie cheat steal or kill in some circumstances but not others? are they consistent? Do they look to man’s governments to solve mankinds problems? You can tell who or what people worship? I look at people who get all hyped up over football or baseball teams and rooting for one team over another, and talking about it and watching it on tv and prioritizing their team or games over more important things like taking care of their children or family obligations as worshipping competition and human athletes.

Anyway sin is starting to become out of date in this day and age, and that is partly the fault of the religious leaders of christendom, who claim to know the bible and represent God of the bible but who belie the claim by advocating self determination and human governments as the pancrea for mankinds problems, thus elevating Satans house as the solution to the problems satan caused in the first place (talk about the fox guarding the hen house scenario) and this is partly the fault of the government rulers who do not pracitce what they preach who break the moral laws all in the name of obeying the moral laws. And now just like physical laws they aer breaking the moral laws and are reaping the consequences. these moral laws are just as sure as the physical laws.

Continuing the quote of this article I read, partial quote, “he can never escape the fact that he is a subject to many things including both physical and moral laws, if he tried to ignore these laws he soon comes into a clash with natural forces resulting in sickness or calamity or he encroaches upon the rights of others and meets with trouble.” So people wonder why Governements are getting worse and the sufferings and injustice they cause is getting worse. They are breaking these moral laws (and some physical as well)

So as long as sin rules over our bodies and minds, it is a battle to do right (apostle paul speaks about this struggle) romans 7:14-25.

So sin is something that cannot be eradicated thorugh our own effort hence the need for the ransom sacrifice Jesus gave, but this is for another post. as long as man is sinful (and satan is taking advantage of it to corrupt people beyond reform and he is a creep to boot) peace and security and paradise will never materialize.

“Our father in the heavens let your name be santified (hollowed) let your kingdom come and let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.” matthew 6:9-10 takes on more meaning when we learn about sin and it’s affects. I want you all to name just one human who can overcome satan and his propaganda without devine help? Any takers? Hence the need for this kingdom (government by God)and for his will to be done (if it was being done in the man governments would we need to even pray this anymore?)if the united nations is God’s expression of his kingdom on earth (christendoms words not mine) then why is it so corrupted, cruel and why is it breaking all of Gods moral laws? Do you suppose the leaders of chrsitendom are lying? why would they do that? the same reason satan did, they want something they have no right to, they want to be kings. Gross sin is really manifest in organizations, and in another post I will touch on the reason for that. Just think the expression I have heard many times over the years, “It is good to be King.” why? the king can make whatever laws he wants and take property from others at will and gain more wealth and power then anyone can ever achieve. So let us not be overcome by sin nor be seduced to crave what satans world has to offer, it is temporary and will not lead to happiness and peace for anyone. How?

this is for another post, see you all later,

 

 

babylon the great has fallen and can’t get up,

The mother of the harlots and the disgusting things of the earth has fallen and she literally will not get back up again. Who is this mother and why cant she get up again? Why should we care anyway?

First you have to know what this mother is, babylon the great. I have heard a few say it is rome, or big business, or whatever. it is nice to consider where babylon the great got started and why called babylon. you know babylon means babel, or confusion, (and if you say this world is  not one big confusing mess you have been living in a bubble). The original babylon was a world power called the third one of bible history (those powers that have control or affected God’s people) and the head of gold of daniels prophecy of the image of daniel chapter 2.Daniel said you (to the ruler of babylon) are the head of gold.

But furthur back in history babylon got started by a creep named nimrod, he was a hunter of not just animals (and wanton at that for sport and all the love of the kill that sorta thing) but a hunter of humans as well. He basically was a cold blooded cruel killer of animals and people. He it was that got a start in building cities and empires of control over their fellows for self enrichment. Military campaigns as it were.

You can read about this creep in genesis chap 11. Anyway this guy had no regard for God or man, thus he was morally depraved, you can bet your bottom and top dollar satan helped him quite a bit to become that way. His desire was rulership so he prompted the people there to build a city to the heavens so they could remain tightly together (rather then spread out like God wanted) to make a name for themselves, of course he was seeking control but he couldn’t tell them that, I mean it can be pretty hard controling people who are all spread out and independently self sustaining and all.

in fact he was so influential that many people worship and wear a symbol all around the world that honors him. Want to know what that is? It is similar to the letter of the alphabet. Many people believe this symbol represents the apparatus Jesus died on, but for bible scholars who really know their stuff Jesus died on a stake, one pole. That was customary way the creepy romans tortured their victims to death.

Rather this symbol was used in worship long before Jesus came on the scene, nimrods defied name was tammuz.(roman name apollo) today people still worship tammaz.  anyway, Babylon the great was a combo of political and religious center or foundation as it were. When God confused their languages to stop their diabolic plan they left off the city and spread abroad, like they should of done in the first place, and carried their beliefs with them. hence confusion, or babel. Hence the common denominator religious beliefs. What all have in common.

use of images, sun moon stars worship (both literal and symbolic) political involvement, military campaigns, supporting military operations of their home countries, perpetuating immorality,immortality of the soul (it doesn’t die jsut goes somewhere else), false teachings that discredit the bible, such as bible stories are myths, promotion of false worship like nature worship or evolution, teaching human philosophy instead of bible prinicples. trying to control by riding the scarlet colored wild beast (the united nations) hence more political meddling.

now what organizations can you think of that does exactly this all over the world regardless of nationality? is it not false religion? I was just reviewing revelation 17, 18, 14:8 ezekiel 9:1-11, and others like daniel 2:1-44 (rise and fall of world powers) also revelation 13 about the 7 headed wild beast,remember these are presented in signs not to be taken literally as far as symbolism here goes. rev 1:3

okay einstein, how has she fallen (I can hear you say that as plain as if we were talking on the phone) if you read rev 16:12 the river euphrates dries up, revelation 17:15 says the waters mean crowds, tongues and people, so she has support by the waters, (people). So basically babylon the great is losing support by the people, it is drying up, if you know about how the literal babylon was destroyed, cyrus diverted the river and the men were able to get into the city in thigh deep water. so while this river of the religious harlot is drying up it won’t be complety dried up. she will still have adherents when the political rulers turn on her.  Also she has fallen in that she could no longer hold people who love rightouenss and truth in subjection, they could now study the bible themselves and learn what it says, and no longer did the false teachings like immortality of the soul, hellfire, and other false teachings hold them in bondage to her.

Daniel wrote that many will rove about and the true knowledge will become abundant, in this case since we are talking Jehovah’s worship, basically means roving about in the bible getting and understanding and applying it. Daniel 12:1-13. It even says that no wicked one will understand but those having insight will. your not wicked are you?  I certainly hope not, lol. It also says this will occure in the later part of the days, which revelation chapter one says is the lord’s day, our day.

why give babylon the first attention for destruction? Because, christendom being the dominate part, has not taught the people to be moral servants of God, to be peaceable, loving, kind unselfish, it has winked at wrong doing, encouraged violence of every sort, it has done nothing to ease the burdens of oppression of sin, death, satan and political and commerical rulers, it has directed people to the wrong solutions for their suffering and injustice they endure all for the sake of keeping the people in subjection to them and their friends the political and commerical rulers. Basically the clergy and priests have become feeders of themselves fleeceing the flock.  And they have caused themselves and their flock (members) blood guilt in promoting warfare, and abortions and blood transfusions and abuse of these various tissues just mentioned. This blood guilt has to be avenged on babylon the great and anyone else who supports or condones what they are doing.

All of this has reproached Jehovah, made him appear to be condoning this crime wave, makes him appear to either not care or not even exist at all. But by using the political sheperds to turn on the religous sheperds and their supporters Jehovah having put it in their hearts as revelation 17:17 to do this thing and even for all the nations to give up their sovereignty to this scarlet beast (united nations) He shows that christendom and all other religions do not serve him, he doesn’t approve of what they are doing and thus he proves his innocence and his actual existance (like pharoah said “who is Jehovah so that I should obey his voice,… whats more I do not know Jehovah and I will not send isreal away.” Boy did he find out in a hurry how wrong he was to ignore the evidence right in front of his face.

And the political sheperds don’t get off quite easily as well, but they are for another post, they too have sins they have to answer for too. And you big business, your in for it to, for your crimes as well. Seems a bit harsh but has anyone considered how harsh man has been to other men, how merciless and cruel they have been to each other? Should Jehovah worry about the feelings of the tyrants of the world?

Jehovahs people will not be fighting in this instance, but they will be still when this time comes waiting on Jehovah and sounding out the word of what is going ot happen and what you can do to become a survivor into God’s wonderful new world where tyrants, nimrods, big business and human governments will not exist. Revelation 21:3-4

Jehovahs deeds past/present

hi folks, pretty awesome that you think some of my stuff is awesome, thank you, I thought you might like an overview of something very important to me and I am sure to alot of others.

Many people read the bible especially what is term the old testement which we call the hebrew scriptures. Many times they read events or actions there and come to the wrong conclusion about Jehovah and his will and purpose. I know I did many times in the past, which research usually would correct. The bible is really about one basic theme, God’s kingdom rulership, it goes kind a like this, adam and eve were given perfect circumstances they did not cultivate love for God and thus they chose to disobey, many know this, Jehovah had decreed disobedience was the death penalty, which many probably think was a little harsh for eating a peice of fruit off a forbidden tree.

The implications go deeper then eating a peice of fruit, it all comes down to the peace and harmony in the entire universe, remember the angels are watching all of this and they are learning about Jehovah too and thier respect for his laws and Jehovah’s qualities are on the line too with this seemingly small thing taking place in the garden. If they see Jehovah compromise on his word just this once wouldn’t that cause them to lose respect for his laws and a distrust in his word?

if the angels did that do you suppose total havac would ensue in the universe? think about how powerful angels are.and think about how powerful  satan and the demons are and how they are trying to undermine people’s respect and love for Jehovah and his laws. Now to my point, when this rebellion happened Jehovah already came up with a solution right away, that was the ransom, but there was more but stick with this for now, Jesus was to come down through the line of abraham (due to the promise given) this seed (Jesus) then come through the tribe of judah, all this time the isrealites were entrusted with his laws and the privelege of being heirs to this seed.

But there was a problem, satan would do all he can to destroy the isrealites qualifications to bear that seed, remember Jehovah already promised this through the isrealite judah tribe, and if satan succeeded in stopping that Jehovah would be proven not only a liar but incapable of seeing his promises come to fulfillment which would undermine people’s and angels trust and confidence in him.

So how would satan do that? well what tools were at his disposal? did he not have control over many nations, including the cannanites, babylonians and assyrians who surrounded the isrealites during their history? Was he not aware of man’s fallen conditon too? So how would he try to undermine Jehovah’s promises? he would use the nations whom he controlled. Remember if satan succeeded you and I would have no hope for the future except permanent death.

Now how would Jehovah protect the isrealites? well in some cases he used the isreatlites themselves to attack and kill the enemy, but many times Jehovah did it himself directly, like when 300 gideons men routed and destroyed 1000’s that came up against them, Jehovah caused the enemy to turn on one another and the 300 men did not kill as many as Jehovah did directly. He used the natural elements many times to destroy, hail stones,  storms and floods, and sickeness, like the time the philistines had the ark of the covenant and Jehovah was not pleased with that and he struck them with illness and lions, he sent lions against them. The philistines even told the king to give the ark back to the isrealites.

Why was he so determined to rout out the cannanites? because Jehovah said they are a snare to them, Jehovah could read the hearts of the people and determine they were beyond redemption (tho there are a few execptions of those who were given amnesty) and would only be a harassing element for the isrealties both physically and spiritually. Jehovah wanted to protect that line that leads to Jesus and satan wanted to stop it, using the cannanites who were very numerous, close by and very violent in their actions.

You see the isrealites when they acted on Jehovahs word succeeded in all they did, but when they disobeyed many times they were overthrown and enslaved by the nations, Jehovah allowed this as a punishment but also a refining, showing them the seriousness of the matter, (you know what happens when very bad deeds are excused or downplayed don’t you?)If they went up against a nation he did not authorize then they were defeated.

Satan was behind this constant harassment by the nations who always coveted the land, which we know was said to be blessed by God himself. Satan used the nations to do his bidding. Satan absolutly did not want this seed to come to being as it would mean satan was going to be crushed to death in the future. Also he did not want others to come to know and worship Jehovah, despite the destruction of many, many individuals who could see a distinction between those who served Jehovah and those who didnt could also join in worshipping jehovah and receive the massive blessings that resulted. So the cannanites had no excuse to not know who jehovah was and that he was backing the isrealites, and if they wanted too they could take up the worship if they had wanted to, but most didnt want it. Jehovah can foresee this as well.

Now that the seed arrived and has gone to heaven and is now reigning as king of God’s kingdom there is no need for any man to take up arms against another, as jehovah has not decreed that humans will be used to accomplish his will of punishing the wicked and destroying them, that is Jesus job now,  his servants now are to preach and teach about this kingdom and not learn war anymore. The apostle paul wrote that our warfare is against spirits in the heavenly places (satan and the demons), against lies, we must flood the world with truth to over come the flood of lies, We must help people to see that salvation (which includes not just physical but spiritual, intellectual, emotional salvation)comes not thorugh any human agency like the United nations,or government or even intellecturals and scientists, philosphers or anyone else, but only through Jehovah’s provision of a messianic kingdom.

But don’t be confused here, satan will try to stop this preaching and teaching, he has done this in the past and continues to try to undermine Jehovah’s purposes and worship, he uses these human agencies to try to ban Jehovah’s worship in anyway they can, they try to discredit his laws by breaking them constantly and laughing all the way to the bank when they do not suffer the conseqences right away, they use the propaganda machine to undermine the validity of the bible such as the shows like The Bible, evolution theory, undermine morality in presenting it as relative, relative in that if people agree it is wrong or right then that is morality, satan even uses alternative worship, like enviromentalism, or the united nations, or communism or libertarian ideology and the like to divert people’s attention away from the real solutions to all of our problems, and I know they are so numerous it can give one a headache trying to think of them all.

This propaganda machine works really well because people are desperate for relief from the problems of poverty, wars, homelessness, pollution, sicknesses, and injustices they see around them and not understanding the bible due to not researching into it furthur then just reading it, misunderstanding it, and deciding God is a big meanie or hte bible contradicts it self or makes no sense they look elsewhere.

The religious leaders of christendom have to take the major blame for this, they have caused Jehovahs sheep to scatter (go to other ideologies, schemes, causes, and alternative solutions to problems and false religious ideas)you are Jehovahs sheep if you choose to be, you can decide for yourself which way you will go, will you trust human agencies and ideas? will you investigate beyond just reading the bible and saying God is a big meanie who kills innocent people? or are you hungering and thristing for rightousness and want to truly know Jehovah and what is will and purpose will mean for you?

psalms 2, 37, 146;3-10, hebrews 4:12,matt 5;3-10, ezekiel 9:4,

It is good to remember that the bible was not meant to be understood through just casual reading, it requires effort and it requires Gods help through his visible organization, who Jesus calls the faithful and discreet slave in matt 24;45-47, the apostles were the beginning of this slave class who would dispense food (spiritual food) to jesus belongings, us. Even phillip was used by God to help the ethiopian eunech who didnt understand what he was reading. Jehovah said in malachi 3:18 that he would make a distinction between one serving him and one not serving him, and Jesus said you can know a tree by it’s fruit, in this case conduct and results of that conduct. so you have to ask yourself, which organization or people are bearing good fruitage and who are showing themselves to be serving Jehovah? the creator and one who inspired the holy scriptures? Who follow the bible as closly as humanly is possible? you have to answer this yourself

HAPPY TRAVELS FOLKS.
