the nations shall know I am Jehovah.

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.

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,
