the nations shall know I am Jehovah.

DSC00535

Hi there, I hope all is going well and no on is in trouble from all the storms that have gone through.  I have been watching alot of interesting videos and articles and books latly.   it is kind of funny because normally people like me (a non professional scientist) would even consider that much of what science says about fossils and the grand canyon and sedimentary layers and plate tectonics might be wrong, or partially wrong or even interpreted according to what you want to find.  for example the sciencetists have the same evidence/data yet come to very different interpretation and conclusions.

this cant be good you cannot have several interpretations of the same data and they all be correct. And I wont even touch on much about dishonesty in the field. So why is this important? well depending on whom you trust and believe determines the life course and choices you make.

For example if you believe the evolutionists or other scienctists who discredit the bible with thier conclusions, then your life course and expectations and understanding of the world will go the way based on that belief system. you will make decisions on that belief you will speak to others of that same idea and spread that idea.  This can have a domino affect for good or bad.

Hence the title of this note. The nations shall know that he is Jehovah. when you look at the world people have forgotten him, they have replaced him with materialism, sports, making money, vacations, or themselves as God or even scientists and doctors as highest authority on what is true, false, good or bad for us. People are looking to the government of man to solve problems. Thus they are looking to human solutions.

Hence Jehovahs reputation is on the line. Whenever people disregard logic and  follow blindly others who just happen to have  fancy title or wear a fancy coat with labels on them they bring reproach on Jehovah. Why? because they have disregarded him, gave credit to life to the god of blind chance. They have taken up Satans ideology. They have disregard logic, and wisdom, and well hurt his feelings.

As a result they forgot god and you see the results in the world, the increasing violence in a nation of christendom, a nation of people who should know better as they have access to the bible. you have racial violence, violence in the drug war, you have violence by government not protecting their people from invaders and free loaders who burden the citizens down and put them in danger. You have family violence parents mistreating their kids, their parents or mistreating each other, you have legalized murder of children, and parents who do not know what is right and wrong anymore in raising their kids, you have government violence against the people with counterfieting the money, counterfieing laws, and putting more and more pressure on people who are just trying to live. All because of forgetting Jehovah.

But while most have forgotten Jehovah some have remembered him and honored him, and in return Jehovah has not forgotten them and the love they showned for him and as a result in ezekiel it states The nations shall know Jehovah 28 times. Why again? because to honor his name and honor those who love him and cannot allow wickedness to continue indefinitly.

Most will not know him voluntarily, they will not acknowledge his right to rule over his own creation.  They will have to be forced, pharoah had to be forced, the assyrian king senacribe had to be forced to know, and it was not a pretty sight. This force is the last resort, peace and justice must be put in place for the sake of his name and those who love rightousness.

This violence perpetuated on Gods sheep must be stopped. He will act in due time, as the wickedness has reached to its peak. but if peace and prosperity is to be had by all obedient humans the wicked people must go. they wont step down willingly but will haveto be forced.

this will not give him any pleasure,  but it has to be done. then the real life can begin.

contempalation on words

hum, was reading some things today and I thought I would comment on definitions of words, weird I know, but it seems that definitions of words have strong impacts and can direct our perception on things like right, wrong, true, false, good or bad, it conveys ideas on understanding of what, when, how and why too.  The use of semantics has been a play on words for control over people, to convey what your trying to say, and even getting around something very bad and trying to sugar coat it. It has even been used to deceive people, redirect them from a real issue to fake issues too. 

 Like anything it  can be a double edged sword, used for both good and bad.  take this  computer for example,(please do not literally take it okay? lol) it can be used to help enlighten people, give them the truth to save them from traps or it can be used to trap you in so many ways, deceive you in so many ways it boggles the mind the trouble creepy, hurricreeps and nit wits will go to for mind and heart control. 

Now take the word war, what is war? what do you think? let me know in the comments below. What is violence? what does it mean to be violent? What does it mean to be legal or illegal? What does it mean to be lawful? what is definition of law? What is the definition of counterfeit? What is freedom? what does it mean to be free? What are rights? Human rights what are they? where do they originate? Why do we need rights? What is the opposite of rights?  hum, can you guess?  What is the definition of consent? contracts? what is required for a contract to be bonifide? what does bonifid mean?

Language is a funny thing, it can be twisted, manipulated, invented and even definitions changed by governments or corporations. Just some thougths I had today. Remember a time when the word ain’t wasn’t a word? now it is used freely and no one argues this point anymore.  Let me know your thoughts?

how about the word death? what is it? Can this word mean more than one thing? how about death of a loved one? obvious? How about spiritual death? financial death? how about it symbolizing gloomy times? or hopelessness? The sun growing dark could it mean just eclipse? or can it mean hoplessness? uncertainty about which way to go in life? or could it mean death of very life itself? A bright shining sun? could it symbolize something we all can relate too? life?, enlightenment? freedom? prosperity? could it also mean religious, political, economic leaders who appear to bring light, hope, prosperity and stability to the people which sun in fact is scorching mankind instead? hum then the word burn? what does it mean to burn? be burned? God is said to plague the sun in revelation, did the sun itself do anything bad to be plagued? what is a plague from the bible standpoint? could it mean Gods judgement on those who are symbolized by the sun? what judgement is that? read jw.org for the answer? recognize who the sun is.

So what is a kingdom? anyone? I mean we have been told by Jesus Christ to pray for it? Our father in the heavens may your name be sanctified, (hallowed) let your KINGDOM come? let your WILL take places on earth as in heaven. sound familiar? So what is a kingdom? and why is it so important for it to come? What will it mean for those who support this kingdom? read jw.org.

The bible speaks about the pure language? is it talking about a literal language like English or Spanish? or is there more to it? It speaks about this in Zephaniah, so what was he trying ot convey? could it be perhaps the language of truth, the real thing, (pun might be intended?)lol, the truths conveyed in the bible, understanding Gods will and purposes accurately that unifies people who care about justice, truth, love and wisdom God has given us? Because in Zephaniah it says they will learn the pure language and thus be able to serve Jehovah shoulder to shoulder? what does this mean? shoulder to shoulder? unity of direction, purpose and support for each other? What is required to learn this language? Jesus said in matthew that those conscious of their spiritural needs, those who are meek, (teachable and humble). Those who long for righteousness, those who are pure in heart. Are you meek and humble and pure in heart?

Will you accept Jehovahs invitation to learn this pure language and serve him shoulder to shoulder with those who have taken up the call? jw.org if you wish to obtain bible study or literature or even read the bible on line in over 500 languages. It is really a cool site. The wonderful thing about this language of truth, is it will never change or be altered or used to sugar coat the bad.

<p>God . . . turned his attention to the nations to take out of them a people for his name.—Acts 15:14.</p>
<p>During a milestone governing body meeting in Jerusalem in 49 C.E., the disciple James said: “It is written, ‘After these things I shall return and rebuild the booth of David that is fallen down . . . in order that those who remain of the men may earnestly seek Jehovah, together with people of all the nations, people who are called by my name, says Jehovah.’” (Acts 15:13-18) “The booth [or, royal house] of David” fell when King Zedekiah was dethroned. (Amos 9:11) However, that “booth” would be rebuilt with David’s descendant Jesus as the permanent King. (Ezek. 21:27; Acts 2:29-36) As James pointed out at that historic meeting, this prophecy of Amos was being fulfilled in the gathering of Kingdom heirs from both Jews and Gentiles. Today, a remnant of anointed Christians and millions of Jesus’ “other sheep” are united in declaring Bible truth as servants of Jehovah.—John 10:16. w13 2/15 2:1, 2</p>

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.

 

 

 

judicial lawlessness

ever read the book the law by basitat? it is short and sweet. It made me think about our day. How has ‘law’ been used to commit oppression and injustice? hum that is not hard is it? Let me see, The Bundy ranch incidence? hum, Ruby incident? Waco? hum, lalalalal oh yea Policing for profit situation, you know stealing your stuff even though you have done no wrong, they just pretend you did and you must prove you didn’t.  Lalalalalala, oh yea, prisons for non violent offenders where your caged like an animal because you like to eat or drink or smoke the wrong food.  lalalalalala Oh I almost forgot the Katrina incident in new Orleans, where people were getting their guns and property stolen, trespassing on threats into people’s homes to see what valuables you have. Don’t forget some places actually outlawing gardens in your own yard.  Where you cannot grow your own food that is also sold on the market like wheat, since it affects commerce in some way (and what activity doesn’t) because a farmer wanted to grow his own grain for his own family.

Now I thought using threats of harm to steal someones stuff or to kidnap your kids was illegal/unlawful?  Am I missing something here? this is the land of Christendom right? rulers have said they are Christian right? I even heard bush say he was, so how is stealing people’s stuff or using armed people to enforce the law to steal peoples life liberty and chidren if you do something politically incorrect chrisitan?  Could they perhaps just be lying?

Does God really take note of this oppression and injustice? Let him speak for himself.  ISAIAH 10:1-2 shows us his feelings. “Woe to tose who enact harmful regulations who constantly draft oppressive decrees to deny the legal claim of the poor to deprieve the lowly among my people of justice making widows their spoil and fatherless children their plunder.”

Does this make it clear for you? Jehovahs laws forbids all forms of injustice “you people must not do injustice in the judgement you must not treat the lowly with partiality and you must not prefer the person of a great one.” 

Disregarding that law these officials draw up their own “harmful regulations” so as to legitimize what amounts to outright theft of the cruelest kind. taking the scanty  possessions of poor people isreals false gods are of course blind to the injustice but Jehovsh is not.

So what, Jehovah doesn’t exist will be the response. But why doesn’t he exist? so are you saying complex laws of nature and complexity of it all just happened without intelligent direction? Just ask a scientist how complex the dna molecule is, he will tell you. Where did our intelligence come from, our sense of justice our sense of right and wrong? Do you see morality among the animals the chimps the apes? Where did the instinctual behavior come from who programmed the dna to transmit it? Let me see, chance?  Did your computer just happened by explosion of reactions of non living elements? so how long will we have to wait for justice.

So  people do not misread Jehovahs patience as non interest or non existence, the bible answers that question.  2peter 3:9, Has God punished people in the past for injustice and violence? The flood, which most are familiar with was for the violence, so was Sodom and gormorroh for their sexual deviate violence (which included raping boys). Malachi reminds us that Jehovah has not changed. his feelings on the matter and purpose has not changed.

so let this be a warning to those in power, do not abuse your priveleges of service to your fellow man nor discount Jehovahs existence,  Jehovah is watching and there is no partiality with him and he has promised not to allow wicked people to be around forever his patience has a limit and based on prophecy and principles of the bible that time is very close at hand.

EPSON MFP image

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.

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.

Text for Thursday, December 5, 2013 *** Why People Think Jesus is God

December 5, 2013 at 8:00am\l ”

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.

*** w12 1/15 p. 6 True Christians Respect God’s Word ***

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.
