BIblical Controversies and Discord

The Court of the Gentiles and Human Rights


As far as I know, Jesus never said anything about gaity, effeminism, lesbians, or homosexuals. In my opinion they should have the same human rights as others have. I do not think this is a slippery slope. It is common sense.

They should have the right to marry.

Now the bible says we should not eat shellfish…because of the health risks, but it is not one of the Ten Commandments.

Do we say that people who eat shellfish cannot marry?

 We have progressed in this rights struggle for people of different races, creeds and the female gender; we allow them to marry, why stop now?

How does marriage hurt a feminine man or a manly woman?

How does marriage hurt a homosexual or a lesbian?

How would that human right hurt the people in our country?

I think it would make them and us safer.

Did God say he was against homosexuals getting married? Not that I recall but He does not approve of the sexual act because it is unnatural and obviously a health risk.

Because God loves humans he tells them about the risks ahead of time to help protect them no matter who they are, homosexual or heterosexual. African or Roman. Jewish or Palestinian. American or Russian. ETC.

Obviously, each and all of us are imperfect by His design.

I haven’t seen, neither met, nor known anyone that was perfect.

He created humans with flaws or we would be perfect and since angels fell they must have been imperfect too!

That face sure looks familiar to me!

Cardinal John Patrick Foley

Cardinal John Patrick Foley

Jackie o?

Compare the picture above with this picture of Jackie

you have to admit they do look similar.

“During his tenure, the Archbishop once sparked outrage in the homosexual community by describing the AIDS pandemic as a “natural sanction for certain types of activities.”[12

Makes you wonder who is responsible?

He also defended the Church’s exclusively male priesthood, once saying, “Jesus clearly did not ordain women to the priesthood, nor did he authorize the Church to do so.”

How would he know?

When angels think they are God. 

Is Cardinal John Patrick Foley a relative to Jackie O?

“I Come as a Pilgrim”

“The Pope held out a special hand of reconciliation in advance to Catholic homosexuals, who had been outraged at comments made by Archbishop John Foley, the American who heads Vatican communications. Foley had described the scourge of AIDS as a “natural sanction for certain types of activities.” Aboard Spoleto, John Paul said homosexuals “are in the heart of the church,” along with “all people who suffer.” In his first-ever remarks on AIDS, the Pope said, “The church is doing all that is possible to heal and especially to prevent the moral background” of the disease.”

^These guys are nuts IMO! They love suffering….keeps them afloat.

Not only homosexuals received the “natural sanction” spoken of by Cardinal John Patrick Foley but so did other people like hemopheliacs. I dated a man who died of aids along with his brother, both were hemopheliacs. Both were happily married and productive men. Before he died he did reveal to me that his investigation of the aids contamination in the blood supply had to do with

the Red Cross, and in particular Elizabeth Dole.

Weird picture of the Doles and the Connallys

I guess  “natural sanction for certain types of activities.”

 is not very exact kind of like the Mustard Seed Parable.

D.C. gay rights groups evacuated after bomb threats

What is a marriage called when a gay person marries a straight person?

Half gay marriage? Half straight marriage?

How about if the other person isn’t aware of the other persons sexuality? What if the person isn’t even aware of their own sexuality?

Then what? Does that mean they are forever married until death even though it is a bad arrangement?

I don’t think it is fair to draw a line on this human right. I wonder how many unnecessary tragedies have occurred because of this type of hypocrisy especially when it comes to arranged marriages over the history of this world. How many murders have occurred to coverup ones sexuality because of what “the church” deemed legitimate?

Anne Boleyn and others come to my mind!

=======================

 I would rather see a homosexual have one partner and learn about marriage than live wildly and not learn about marriage. Marriage tends to stabilize a person which is good for many reasons. Depriving a person of a stabile loving environment is cruel and certainly doesn’t help.

Marriage is a private relationship between adults so they should be able to marry as long as the other person wants the same, just as I believe a person has the right to a divorce if things don’t work out, without ramifications.

I should have the right to raise my child my way without hindrance from others such as my government and my government school system. I should be able to homeschool if I so choose with out interference from my government. It is not my governments business how I raise my child.

 Sodom and Gommorah

I believe the reason the angels blinded the crowd wasn’t because of their sexual orientation. It was because they were demanding attention from the angels and forcing themselves upon the angels, Lot, and his family. They had no right to do that and Lot should not have offered his daughter to them. They were forcing themselves upon Lot, his family, and the angels. That is why I believe they were blinded.

God did not destroy Rome or Greece and I think they also had homosexuals living in their countries. But our bibles tell us that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.

Did Jesus destroy homosexuals when he came?

I don’t recall that he did, but he healed people with various imperfections,

but not everybody.

Why was Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed?

The bible says that it was because of the sin of the people had basically gotten so bad that God could not ignore it anymore. It wasn’t just the homosexuals.

It was everyone in those cities.

I do not know what Gomorrah means but this is what it says is the definition:

Go·mor·rah 2
n.
A wicked or depraved place

Sodom means:

Sodomy – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sodomy refers to anal sex or other non-penile/vaginal copulation-like acts, especially between male persons or between a person and an animal.

So we have wickedness, depravity, anal sex and beastiality, and I don’t know what the other non-penile/vaginal copulation means ….maybe oral sex, heavy petting and other things.

So basically the two names of the two cities doesn’t exclude a particular gender. The definition of the names of those two cities does however seem to point to sexual sin and wickedness. 

Men, women, children, and animals were destroyed.

Obviously sin was rampant amongst all the people and tolerated by Lot and his family.

Abraham made a deal with the destroying angels hoping to spare the two cities, if the destroying angels could find a certain amount of righteous people would God spare the cities from destruction. I forget the amount that they agreed upon but it was not just a few but it seems they could not even find that amount because the bible says those cities were not spared.

From that I glean that it is a good idea

to allow righteous people to be righteous,

because it is those people and their righteousness that keep the world safe.

 In the Gospel of John after Jesus had arisen he said

John 14:1

Let not your heart be troubled:

ye believe in God, 

believe also in me.

————————————————

We should help people to believe in humane, thoughtfully kindly ways within the laws of the countries and not persecute believers or non believers, or disembowel them and kill them, lie to them, or torture them, or trick them because they are imperfect.

Christians are imperfect.

Nobody said that a believer was perfect.

Christians should not expect perfection in non believers either.

Non believers should not expect perfection in believers.

Angels are imperfect too…..

Putting someone on the rack doesn’t improve them. I don’t expect the Roman Catholic establishment to be perfect either. They have made huge mistakes but should also have to live by the laws of the land and own up to their mistakes. They have accomplished some good things too and we cannot discount their service in some capacities. Most Roman Catholics are wonderful people and imperfect.

The Roman Catholic Church established a Court of the Gentiles

about the same time as they felt they were being persecuted

because of their abuse of children

and not because of their beliefs.

That is the lie.

It is not a coincidence.

Now the RCC and the Pope and their “protection”

won’t allow anyone to see their secret files,

because they perceive themselves to be HOLY  and above the laws of the land

but want us to suffer their subtly maniacal inquisitions

with the powers that they have established for over 2000 years

through deception.

That is the EPITOME of TREACHERY!

I believe if they own up to their mistakes they as a church could be healed and survive because they are human,

Obviously that power has corrupted them.

If they go down we all go down. That’s how these cowards do business.

Ignorance is their ace in the hole, you might say. That is why there was such a thing as the Dark Ages when the lay people were not allowed to read the bible, in essence, they want to discern for us and deceive us. It is their power. Everything they do is toward that purpose. Education on the other hand gives power back to the individual and out of their hands.

Abusers of mankind!

———————–

There were 2 other cities in the plain besides Sodom and Gomorrah which were destroyed. It is quite possible since no one knows where or for sure where these 4 places are located that Sodom and Gomorrah is a prophecy. Don’t discount that possibility.

==============

What is sin?

Obviously wickedness, depravity, bad behavior, and bad morals.  The bible says that homosexuality and beastiality are an abomination. Obviously, disobeying the Ten Commandments is considered to be sin.  The rapid decline in the morals of this country by the average citizen seems to coincide with the dismissal of the rule of law.

Whose law?

God’s law.

We have so many new laws in this country, much more than we had 50  years ago. Obviously, it isn’t the addition of these new laws, but the dismissal and disregarding of God’s law in our country that is affecting our country.

Lawlessness and disobedience 

Most of our kids don’t remember or were not alive when debates about the Ten Commandments were occurring in this country, but I remember it was my generation that rebelled against the monuments of God’s law. As I recall, it was the atheists that were the initiators of this mission, because they don’t believe in God. Free love and the hippie movement were also accepted by some of the population and are now standardized in our relationships in various ways. Abortion also was debated and now we have legal abortion for the rights of the mother and against the rights of the baby. The drug trade and drug usage prospered, homosexuals started to come out of the closet.

 I believed in a government separation of church and state.

I went to an Episcopal church for a couple of years in my early teens.

The Church I attended was hit by lightning and burned up. It coincided with a Gay/effeminate Rector taking over the position at about the same time that the church had invested in a new organ. I noticed the new rector because he swished down the aisle and I thought he was weird, but at the time I did not know about homosexuality in any form. Clueless!  When my family attended this church on many Sundays both my brother and I would get nauseated and have to leave early. It was a real symptom. Either something was wrong with me and my brother, or the church. Well, my brother and I did not get struck by lightning or burn up. So obviously something was wrong with the church. Neither did the rector. The fact is I can’t remember if I didn’t have that same symptom before the new rector. Maybe it meant that God does not approve of a homosexual leading the church. I cannot say for sure. Maybe God did not approve of the church itself. I highly doubt the organ was the problem, but it also burned in the church fire. Maybe God didn’t like the model of the organ.

We ought to regard and erect the monuments of God’s Law

to remind the humans and angels about

the Ten Commandments

that God designed

so that our children and other generations to follow

might have the chance to marry.

I have read a lot of the bible but I have not read the whole bible. I have compared the gospels for a number of reasons and I have chosen whom I believe. The Gospel of John. I am not positive in my conclusions to the 100 percentile, but He makes sense to me. I cannot say that the things told in the other 3 gospels did not occur, but does that make it true and I guess by that I mean the content and the conclusions made by the three synoptic gospel writers and all of their quotes attributed to Jesus.

The Gospel of John gives details that are not present in the other three gospels. He names names of the people in his gospel as if he knew them and was a witness. He makes sense. Jesus doesn’t come off as a fruit cake or a tyrant in this gospel. The other three gospels make Jesus sound like a lunatic and I don’t believe them for that cause. I think he was preceded and shadowed by lunatics and copycats.

Think about the coverup of the assassination of JFK. It is similar to what happened to Jesus except that JFK did not say he was the Messiah. He did have a message though and he paid dearly for it.

I do know that when I started to compare the gospels and write about it, it seemed to stir up a lot of controversy. That was not my intent. Maybe it is just coincidence, but I don’t think it is. I think it is a real threat to the establishment of religion, but that was not my intent either,

but it is scary to see how deceptive the clergy have been.

I think it should be a human right to worship whom you believe.

I do not believe I have the right to kill, maim, or force others to believe what I believe. But I do have the right to express my beliefs. It is a human right, just like African Americans have the right to work in public businesses, worship, eat, sleep, drink, marry, drink from a public water fountain, buy a house in any neighborhood, get loans, own a business,  and go to a public school or public college without hindrance because of their race.

I do not go to their bedrooms because it is private.

It is none of my business what they do there. 

It is between them and God

and whether they believe or not is between them and God.

1 Corinthians 6:9
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

Who is this referring to? Obviously not mankind

The bible says that the effeminate do not inherit the kingdom of God …..

who determines that measure of manliness that does inherit the kingdom of God?

Mitt Romney? George Bush? Billy Graham? Joel Olsteen? The BGEA? Ted Nugent?

The Secret Service? The Jesuits? Putin? Hillary Clinton? The Swiss Guard?

I suspect that the effeminate are the cowards

that aid and abet that power

that abuses mankind.

That is why Revelation says:

Revelation 18:4
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

By remaining you empower the enemy of mankind and that is cowardly,

which is effeminate.

It is not how manly or feminine you are,

but whether you are an abuser without remorse of your fellow human

like a Nazi.

Here is a site you should listen to and hear. Has quite a few you tubes worthy of contemplating about the Roman Catholic Church and other subjects:

 Stephen Fry dismantles the Roman Catholic Church

“……Do you know who would be the last person ever to be accepted as the Prince of the church? The Galilean carpenter. That Jew. They would kick him out before he tried to cross the threshhold. He would be so ill at ease in the church…..”

===================

Are Human Rights

the same or different

than Moral Rights?

I don’t know.

God gave us the choice to believe Him or not to believe. 

God has the right to judge us however he sees fit to do so as a country and individually.  He created us.

His standard is written about in the bible and it is up to each of us individually to decide and make the choices that please him or displease him.

It is a high standard if you include the other books of the Old Testament as well as the other books of the New Testament.

The Ten Commandments are pretty basic though.

Our country was born by invading this continent with lots of different peoples that escaped from other countries of all different religions and races.

Our government is supposed to represent the people that are here.

That happens to include homosexuals because they are human, as far as I know.

Human rights. What does that mean?

It means if you are human you should be able to enjoy the same rights that other humans have legally.

I believe that includes marriage,

but not sodomy.

Privacy is a human right. Sex is a privacy right.

I’m not sure about that,

but it makes sense to me.

I don’t believe it was intended by God for people to be homosexual, but obviously it was a possibility. I don’t think He approves of homosexuality or any other sin. Did God intend for marriage to be between a man and a man? No, I don’t think so since He doesn’t approve of sodomy, but it was a possibility. The bible says that God will deal with sodomites. It is not my business what happens in their bedroom. It is between them and God. My sins are not their sins, and visa-versa. Unless of course done in the public eye.

What is public?

Well, if our government and religious institutions are disobeying our privacy rights that might include what we do in the privacy of our own homes via computers, the internet, tv, telephone

and anything wired electronically, etc.

Are babies not human?

Do they have the right to live?

They can’t speak till they learn to speak and they in fact are dependent on their human mothers womb until they are designed in the womb

created by God

so shouldn’t they be protected by humans and their human rights

since they are human too and so that they may enjoy the right to marry?

How about children?

They have a right not to be sexually abused by their teachers and the clergy so that they might enjoy the right to marry and not be screwed up in their future relationships and marriage. The clergy should be forthright and offer assistance and openness of their accounts and records

instead of hiding and stalling. 

Do the right thing.

It is a human right,

unless you are not human.

========================

If homosexuality is a learned trait then I leave that to Our Father and Jesus to heal the person of this trait when He decides is the right time for that particular individual. Same goes for a Hindu or a Buddhist, etc. Our Father reaches a person however and whenever that He does. I don’t think forcing the religion of Christianity upon another person by using bully tactics like Haarp or other facilities to cause mayhem and earthquakes (which I believe is occurring now) is the right way. If God Himself intervenes that’s His business!!!!! But I know that lately our government and other governments are using these places to scare and intimidate people.

I can’t say positively that HAARP is responsible for the tsunami/earthquake in Japan last year, but it seems highly likely and should be investigated.

But if it was a judgement from God then what did it mean?

Here are some interesting coincidences that were occurring at that particular time as far as I know in Japan involving the Pope, The Neocatechumenal Way, Roman Catholic leaders and the Japanese people. I’m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg but nevertheless ought to be scrutinized. Please read:

Japan Quakes after Confirmation of the Neocatechumenal Way

Maybe the power that is used at places like HAARP have been around longer than we know.The reason I say that is because of what happened at Yodfat. Please read:

Josephus and His Footprints

Using bully tactics like keeping files on every person in the country to blackmail them, coercing them, is DIS-GRACEFUL.  Our government should not be doing this to anyone and it seems that they are, from what I have witnessed and written about in my posts.

It is that kind of business that in essence is a Disgraceful Force that might incite Our Father to intervene such as occurred at Sodom and Gomorah.

Things are pretty rotten in America and the world

and have been declining for a long time.

Why?

I believe we have misinterpreted our bibles.

I also believe we have misinterpreted the signs,

partially because of the powers and those that wield them

who want us to misinterpret these signs.

I do not have any power over any one so I am not responsible for what is happening in our country and abroad, nor do I want to have that power. But I am speaking out and at this time still have a right to voice my opinion and display what I have uncovered over the internet and what I have learned as a believer in God and Jesus written about in the Gospel of John.

I came to those conclusions by reading the bible and comparing the gospels and comparing them to the Old Testament.

and disregarding what is obviously fraudulent and maniacal.

The Fruits of the Vatican

Mitt Romney’s 2006 Rally Against Gay Marriage

Pope Benedict XVI and His Power of Suggestion

Obviously, my beliefs do affect how I react to human rights, people in general, religion and government.

If these facilities are using their power to incite, coerce, create signs such as earthquakes, tsunamis, the right to earn money or inhibiting buying and selling, behavior modification via electronic devices or anything wired to force people to accept a religion or belief or behave in a bad way then I would say they are INHUMANE. I would say they who are doing this obviously don’t agree with humans having human rights and are waging terrorism against the public. If that is true then a homosexual married couple might be at risk from those that are against this human right and humans in general.

Case in point:

Cracks in the Washington Post story on Romney’s ‘pranks’ emerge

A question emerges in reading the Washington Post piece on Mitt Romney today: How can Romney’s old pal Stu White tell the Washington Post that he has “long been bothered by the Lauber incident” — and then later admit to ABC News that he was “not present for the prank” and “was not aware of it until this year when he was contacted by the Washington Post”?

Romney Friend Stu White Says Campaign Wants Him to Counter Prank Accusations

“One former classmate and old friend of Romney’s – who refused to be identified by name – said there are “a lot of guys” who went to Cranbrook who have “really negative memories” of Romney’s behavior in the dorms, behavior this classmate describes as “like Lord of the Flies.”

The classmate believes Romney is lying when he claims to not remember it.

“It makes these fellows [who have owned up to it] very remorseful.  For [Romney] not to remember it? It doesn’t ring true.  How could the fellow with the scissors forget it?” the former classmate said.

In a radio interview Thursday morning,

Romney offered an apology for the pranks,

but said that “homosexuality” was never on his mind”

==============

Which reminds me of what God said to Abraham when Abraham took his son Isaac to Mt. Moriah to sacrifice him.

After Abraham had built an altar and had bound his son and was about to kill him in the act of sacrifice,

God intervened and told Abraham not to kill his son and said 

That sacrificing Abraham’s son Isaac was never on his mind.

Then Abraham found a ram with its horns caught in the bushes

which God had provided.

Then Abraham sacrificed the ram/lamb (depending on which bible version you read) instead.

I’m sorry and need to apologize

for the above statement:

I made a mistake because I went back to read about Abraham and Isaac and what I had written that God had said (that sacrificing Isaac was never on his mind) is not true. I don’t know how that happened honestly, but God blessed Abraham for his fear of God and his willingness to offer Isaac his only son. I really thought I had read the above but now I cannot find it.

Please read:

Genesis 22

And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him:

for now I know that thou fearest God,

seeing thou hast not withheld thy son,

thine only son from me.

13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.

15 And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

But what about Ishmael? Wasn’t he also Abraham’s son? Hmmm. I guess from this God did not consider that Ishmael was Abraham’s son.

Maybe because God knew something not revealed? 


Still I know that we do make mistakes in God’s name and in the name of Jesus as I have demonstrated so personally. Sorry!

Please read:

Binding of Isaac

“While it is often imagined that Isaac was a small child, some sources claim he was an adult (noting that Jews are considered adults at age 13). The Talmudic sages teach that Isaac was thirty-seven, likely based on the next biblical story, which is of Sarah’s death at 127 (she was ninety when Isaac was born). Bishop Ussher’s chronology would place Isaac at about 20 years of age.”

Genesis 22:14 states that it occurred at “the mount of the LORD”: in 2 Chronicles 3:1Psalm 24:3Isaiah 2:3 & 30:29; and Zechariah 8:3, the Bible seems to identify the location of this event as the hill on which Solomon was said to later build the Temple, now known as the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.[c

Obviously, people jumped the gun

and made some horrible mistakes

in the name of God and in the name of Jesus

and do the same now!

———————

John 8:57-59

57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,

Before Abraham was, I am.

59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

For the longest time I have tried to figure out what Jesus was trying to communicate when he said in the Gospel of John:

” Verily, verily, I say unto you,

Before Abraham was, I am.”

Is this what he meant? The reason I say that is because the Temple Mount was built on this site where the event spoken about in Genesis 2:2 occurred with Abraham and his son Isaac!

I even thought maybe the exodus of the hebrews led by Moses from Egypt might have occurred before the event spoken about on the Mount where Abraham and Isaac made their sacrifice, but now it is quite possible that Jesus in the Gospel of John was talking about the event with Abraham and Isaac on that same location.

=====================

Communication between humans is tough sometimes. I noticed through experience that men have a tough time communicating with each other where as women have an easier time communicating. Men are imperfect that way. Women on the other hand are more emotional and tend to be imperfect that way.

Even angels were imperfect.

We humans and angels were made with flaws for a purpose. It is our nature to be imperfect and until God perfects all of us we have to cope with those imperfections in ourselves, each other and the others,

because who knows if God will decide to turn the tables and when.

 In any case, we should try to persuade our peers, clergy, friends and neighbors, families, and our government to do what is right.

Just because we are fighting terrorism does not mean we should do the same and become terrorists ourselves. Believe me we will win the war on terrorism if we fight the war

the right way with integrity and mercy!

How we go about doing it is just as important as accomplishing it. Murdering each other, wire tapping each other, raping and pillaging, invading each other’s bedrooms,  intentional disinformation, blackmailing each other, vexing people, impersonating another person, stealing and robbing, starving people, leaving an individual helpless and unable to protect themselves by disarming them, prohibiting each other in inhumane ways is the wrong way to attain human rights and it is the wrong way to change a person’s belief, spirit, and heart.

Lawlessness vs Lawlessness = Lawlessness

Lawlessness + Lawlessness = Lawlessness

which is in essence

war.

Are we at war with God or OG?

Opinion: On gay marriage, Latinos agree with Obama

OBAMA’S GAY MARRIAGE HEAD FAKE

By Roger Stone

“Once Gay Americans are through celebrating President Barack Obama’s “personal” support of Gay marriage equality, they will learn that Obama’s “evolution” changes nothing. Obama’s new position is a bullshit cop-out.

This comes on the heels of an cynical Obama campaign pirouette where Team Obama trotted out first Secretary of State Hillary Clinton then Vice President “Crazy” Joe Biden to say they support gay marriage and imply that the President would too–after the election.

Now, incredibly, Obama says Gay marriage is a state issue. That’s what they used to say about abortion and before that, slavery. Now Obama tells us that gay couples should be able to marry but he doesn’t believe they have a right to do so. Obama would leave the question to the states–in other words -the status quo. This is like saying that public schools ought to be integrated but if the people of Mississippi disagree, well he says, “let the states decide” …

===================================

By the way, what is the 2nd Commandment

of the Ten Commandments?

What is wrong with saying

“do unto others as you would have them do unto you?” 

There are always going to be extremes on any issue. I don’t think we should make determinations of any issues on that basis,

otherwise I would suggest outlawing marriage for heterosexuals.

==================================

Biden apologizes to Obama for marriage controversy

uh huh.

The Trickery and Treachery of Mitt Romeny

“What I am asking about is how the campaign has handled this situation, how he handled the Colorado reporter, how he handled same-sex marriage where

he said he agrees with gay parents be able to adopt,

but he does not agree with same-sex marriage? “

That’s a misnomer.

Homosexuals are good enough to raise kids

but not good enough to be married!

Does Mitt Romney not like orphans, kids, and homosexuals?

Why?

It is okay if you’re gay … Stop Bullying Now!

The times we are living in are treacherous and the leaders we have in our government and religious institutions are as confused as we are because of the treachery and need our help and prayers. We should try to obey the laws of the country we live in as best we can and hopefully all of us can get through the deceit and treachery eventually.

Assassination of JFK and The Covenant with Many – Part 2


You will miss the point of this post if you neglect Part 1 which is linked in the following title:)

In part one of this trilogy

The Covenant with Many

I stumbled upon a coincidence of Joseph of Arimathea/Josephus Flavius

marriage to the church

and the marriage of Jackie Kennedy to Aristotle Onassis (the Greek Shipping Tycoon)

and this is how this particular post came about!


President Kennedy Assassination and Mel Gibson

Part two

After my conclusions about the Kennedy assassination I was intrigued and curious why Jackie Kennedy would be so bold as to kill her husband in broad daylight in front of cameras and people etc. I went through quite a few emotions and ideas kept popping in my head about his supposed affairs except vaguely and over time, reading about them with Marilyn Monroe. I always still had a deep respect for our President and his stance publicly for truth and openness and I have always hated that he was assassinated. I also hate the secrecy associated with the findings about the assassination! His private life might not have been perfect, but he seemed like a Perfect President. And probably there is more to the story than what meets the eye!

I always thought highly of Mrs. Kennedy and her kids. After looking at many pictures of her she is even more beautiful than I remember. But compared to the woman on the screen in the Zapruder film I just wasn’t satisfied with my conclusions even though I think that woman did assassinate President Kennedy.

To start, I would like to divulge again that I am a portrait artist and I notice features a little more closely than the average person. So I decided to compare pictures of her to see if possibly, by chance, that the woman in the Zapruder film might be someone else. I found quite a few pictures and compared them to each other to see if and when she might have been replaced with a double. I know that sounds preposterous, but there is no doubt in my mind after seeing the Zapruder film over and over, and studying it closely, that she looks and acted very guilty. Yet Jacky Kennedy doesn’t seem to be the type of woman to be so calculating and cold. The person on the screen in the film acts like a professional hit woman. So after writing the article The Covenant with Many and the deception involved and how the assassination of President Kennedy seems to cor-relate in very strange ways, especially Jackie’s marriage later to Aristotle Onassis, I had to look into it deeper than I ever have.

=========================

I kept running into the dilemma of mirror-image confusion. If you take an object and stick it in your right hand and go to the mirror the object will be in you left hand. In many of the pictures of her she parted her hair on the left and sometimes on the right.

For instance:

(I put the web addresses for you to put in your title bar to go to the picture to see it larger because my blog will not show it large enough to see a clearly)

http://www.allposters.com/-sp/First-Lady-Jackie-Kennedy-Standing-by-Reflecting-Pool-in-Front-of-Taj-Mahal-During-Visit-to-India-Posters_i4740851_.htm

http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&hl=en&q=pictures+of+jacquelin+kennedy+in+
Taj+Mahal&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=7222b5efa7d4217b

This is the first lady at Taj Mahal on one of her many trips. In the picture above her purse is on her left arm and the part in her hair is on the left and her leg is poised forward on the left when facing her (or her right) and on the picture above that it is the exact opposite. I spent a long time pondering and studying these pictures because she is wearing the same dress and obviously it is the same day, right?…..it appears that way anyway.

Then I realized the mirror-image dilemma.

DID WE HAVE THAT PROCESS VIA PHOTOSHOP BACK IN THOSE DAYS…..

I HAVE NO IDEA?

But we do now!

Most people rarely change their part from the left to the right, or visa versa. But with mirror-image I could not get past the confusion, until I put her with another person …..her husband.

Men never change their parts, especially back in those days. So I studied a bunch of pictures of them together and in every shot I could find of the two of them together, their parts were always on the same side. His would be on his right when facing him and hers was on the right when facing her when they were side by side. So if you looked at them they were two right parts, like they matched.

Both have their parts on the right above.

Again.

Again, again  and again!

Both have their parts on the right again!

Both have their parts on the same side again like parallel as the other two above!

And again. Hard to see but their parts are on the right.

Again both President Kennedy and Mrs. Kennedy have their parts on the right when you are facing them.

“It was at President Kennedy’s request that she wear the outfit in Dallas.

He said she looked “ravishing in it.”

Assassination of JFK and The Covenant with Many

The Covenant with Many

(revised)

 

February 11, 2010 By Kevin Flower Israeli archaeologists say they’ve found a 1,500-year-old road, 4.5 meters under the current level of streets in Jerusalem’s Old City.

 

The reason I am writing this post is because of the prophecy in Daniel that a lot of people write about on blogs and websites.

I don’t understand why the prophecy teachers and scholars that try to have an understanding of Daniel’s prophecies…get stuck on the same mantra.

I am not trying to be different, but I think there have been some colossal mistakes made by scholars, bible teachers and the whole spectrum of experts of the bible.

I don’t see how you can read the Gospel of John and collapse it into the Synoptic gospels and say they blend at all or compliment each other.


In Reality

The Gospel of John and the Synoptic Gospels

collide !

In the book of Daniel it talks about Messiah the Prince and a prince.

Why does everyone think the covenant with many is for the future.

How does one come to that conclusion from these verses?

Daniel 9:25-27

25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

It is quite possible that the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince has already occurred,

but has been covered up by the

Chief Priests and the Legion – (please read)

Ancient wall found in Jerusalem

Western Wall, Jerusalem

The Western Wall was built by King Herod in 20 BC during his expansion of the Temple enclosure, and is part of a retaining wall that enclosed the western part of Temple Mount. According to the Roman-Jewish historian Josephus, construction of the walls took 11 years, during which time it rained in Jerusalem only at night so as not to interfere with the workers’ progress.

Ancient road found in Jerusalem’s heart

February 11, 2010|By Kevin Flower

“Archaeologists working under the direction of the Israeli Antiquities Authority have uncovered a 1500-year-old road running through the center of Jerusalem’s Old City.

Excavation director Dr. Ofer Sion said the discovery lends further credence to the accuracy of what is known as the Madaba Map – a Byzantine period mosaic map of the Holy Land that depicts an entrance into Jerusalem that leads to a single central street.

Archaeologists working in Jerusalem have made various finds to suggest the Madaba map was geographically correct, but the road depicted in the mosaic had not been found.”

Obviously, there have been two walls from two different temple eras

and a road!


Micah predicted the downfall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple, which were fulfilled by the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in about 586 BC and again by the Romans in 70 AD. The Temple has not been rebuilt since that destruction. Jerusalem was destroyed a second time by the Romans in about 135 AD.

The only reason I added the above link and the information about the destruction of Jerusalem

and the temple and the destruction again of Jerusalemin in 135 AD

is because it might apply to Daniel’s prophecies.


Perhaps we are wrong about when Jesus really died? Many people seem to think Jesus was 30 or 33 when he started his ministry but in the Gospel of John they refer to him as not yet being 5o years old.

I would say we have a problem within the bible of who and which Jesus is the Messiah!

John 8:56-59

56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

57Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

(Interesting that they threw stones at him.)

Cephus” means stone.

The Synoptic Gospels have built their “image of Jesus” metaphorically by using stones!

By the way, I believe Cephus refers to Josephus Flavius!

Was there ever a decree to build the temple to the Messiah the Prince?

Perchance the destruction of Jerusalem in 135 AD is a clue?

Maybe the decree to build the temple to the Messiah the Prince occurred before 135 AD!

Seems odd that after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD that anyone would need to destroy it again 65 years later.

Building a city takes time, and funds, and manpower,

so why was there a need to destroy it again so soon after it had already been destroyed?


Seems to me that most and maybe all scholars of the bible are making presumptions, because they lump the gospels into one big ball but I think, to be fair,

we should separate the Synoptic Gospels from the Gospel of John

and calculate both sides to see if maybe we can come up with some other answers.

Maybe that is what is meant by the 153 fish which relates to the inferred 153:265 ratio!

Pope Benedict XVI and 153 Great Fish

Pope Benedict XVI is the

265th Pope,

was born Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger


Mel Gibson, George Gänswein, and the Pope

George Gänswein, Pope Benedict XVI, and Mel Gibson

revised

In the two article above that I just recently posted which are very similar I included in both a link to an article I found on the internet about names!

Praising Or Pleading

(POP)

seems to be his (The Pope) MO these days and in this article he pleads for parents to give their children traditional names before baptism so I gather names have meaning to him!

So since they are so important I thought maybe his name might be important also.

The Pope’s Last Name

IN the article

I relate the possibility that the Pope is related to another Pope whose last name was RATTE which would fulfill another prophecy in Revelation 17:11 about him being the eighth and one of the seven:

The Seventh and the Eighth Pope of Revelation- Benedict XVI

But I did not deal with his middle name so:

The Pope’s Middle Name

Aloisius a german name means great warrior but comes from the name

Cleophas meaning and name origin

Cleophas \c-leo-phas\ as a boy’s name is of Greek origin, and the meaning of Cleophas is “visionof glory“.

Biblical name: husband of one of the Marys who stood at the foot of the Cross.

Cleophas has 4 variant forms: CleoCleofasCleofaso and Cleophus.


Alphaeus

which is basically the switch from the Synoptic version and Simon from Cyrene who bears the cross and takes over after Jesus is crucified. In essence to REPLACE the true disciples/apostles with his own sons etc because they were the Chief Priests and they wanted to stay that way and replace Jesus with their own perception of Him. It is the great deception! The Synoptic version of the bible (Matthew Mark and Luke) plus many additional books in the bible to form the amalgamation we now call Christianity.

Basically, Rome absconded the truth and twisted it into their baby.

That is why I believe that Mel Gibson has been targeted for his rendition of the Gospels in THE PASSION,

THE BABY or to be more specific THE DEVIL’s BABY

Here are a few posts about that baby!:

Affliction and the Time of Testing

Mel Gibson and the Book of Acts 2

Mel Gibson, Japan Quakes, and the Kamikazes

Mel Gibson, George Gänswein, and the Pope

George Gänswein, Pope Benedict XVI, and Mel Gibson

revised

You might say I went overboard, which is true, but I am trying to learn and to get your attention and the articles are ongoing because of the events which are at present rapidly unfolding.

======================

Back to the Prophecy of Daniel

============================================================

Daniel 9:26

26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

INTERESTING: NICODEMAS MEANS “THE PEOPLE” AND

IT WAS NICODEMAS AND JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA

THAT BURIED JESUS.


THE POPE’S FIRST NAME


IT’S A GOOD POSSIBILITY THAT JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA

IS THE “prince of the people“.

Another interesting coincidence: Demas is a fellowlabourer of Paul:

Philemon 1:24

24Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

You don’t suppose that Demas is Nicodemas?

Joseph of Arimathea (A JUST MAN)

Daniel 9:27

27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Sounds to me like in order to cover-up the abomination he had to make it desolate?

Who is “he” in verse 27?

Is “he” the Messiah the Prince?

OR

Is “he” the prince?


It makes a big difference who “he” is in verse 27!

The thing that concerns me is that we have been waiting for some treaty or covenant that will be confirmed and seems to me we ought to know first and foremost:

what is the covenant that is made with the many?

Then try to figure out

who confirms that covenant with the many!


The Covenant with the Many


Many treaties have been made with many people so what kind of treaty will be made with the many and confirmed with the many that this particular prophecy in Daniel is referring to? Certainly it has to do with the prince and the temple and/or worship and/or sin.

Most treaties we read about in the news most people are unaware of so why would Daniel of the bible be speaking of some political treaty that only the few politicians and leaders involved realize. This is a prophecy about the Messiah the Prince and the people of the prince and he (I assume is the prince of the people)

But it isn’t a treaty that Daniel talks about….it’s a covenant!

To be more specific it is the “covenant with many”!


What is the covenant with many?

I looked up “covenant” in the bible search on line and found a lot of covenants.

The covenant that caught my eye is the one that the Synoptic Jesus makes with the Synoptic disciples at the Synoptic Last Supper

and the verses about this covenant uses the word many.

I think that is a BIG CLUE about this covenant!


MATTHEW 26:26-29

26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;28For this is my blood of the new testamentwhich is shed for many for the remission of sins.29But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

MARK 14:22-25

22And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.23And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.24And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testamentwhich is shed for many.25Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

LUKE 22:15-20

15And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:16For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.17And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:18For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.19And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

 

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

DOES NOT MENTION THIS

NEW TESTAMENT/Covenant with many!


I THINK THAT IS VERY SIGNIFICANT THAT THE

New Testament/Covenant

IS ABSENT IN

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN!


The three Synoptic gospels don’t mention the washing of the feet,

nor the dialogue that Jesus has with his disciples explaining what is going to happen

and many other things that is worth the time to study.


WHAT IS GOING ON?

Why are the Synoptic Gospels account of the Last Supper so different than the Gospel of John?


Were there two different “LAST SUPPERS”?


For a  break and for fun in an ironic way,

Please watch:

The Last, But One Supper

(It is a Monty Python skit with John Cleese acting like the Pope)


THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW SAYS THAT BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT/Covenant WHICH IS SHED FOR THE MANY is

FOR THE “REMISSION OF SINS“.

THE OTHER TWO SYNOPTICS GOSPELS (MARK AND LUKE) EXCLUDE THE “REMISSION OF SINS” TO THE NEW TESTAMENT/Covenant.

THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW AND THE GOSPEL OF MARK SAY THAT THE BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT/covenant IS SHED FOR THE MANY.

BUT THE GOSPEL OF LUKE SAYS IT IS FOR YOU. (HE IS TALKING TO HIS DISCIPLES)

EVEN THOUGH THESE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS ARE IN AGREEMENT THAT THERE IS A

NEW TESTAMENT/Covenant.

THEY ARE DISAGREEING AS TO WHO THE NEW TESTAMENT/Covenant IS FOR…..

THEMSELVES (YOU) OR THE MANY.

(I HATE TO BE A JERK!)

BUT THE ACCOUNTS GIVEN OF THE “LAST SUPPER” BY THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT (NT as opposed to the OT)

DIFFER A GREAT DEAL AS TO THIS “NEW TESTAMENT/Covenant” AND ARE WORLDS APART FROM THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

SINCE this “New Testament”

DOESN’T EVEN OCCUR IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

THE PRAYER AND THE DIALOGUE OF JESUS WITH HIS DISCIPLES

HAPPENS ONLY IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN AND THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF INFORMATION GIVEN!

========

Another point by Paul Carlson in his article  below, I get the impression that Paul Carlson thinks that all of the contradictions that are contained in the NT makes everything written about Jesus a lie and that is not my point!

I don’t believe that!

I think Jesus the Messiah did come and so did false messiahs and their many supporters

to quell the truth against Him and His true apostles

for money, power and control.

It’s like saying, for example, that the  September 11th terrorist attack on the Twin Terrors weren’t destroyed because 3 or 4 witnesses/terrorists don’t tell the same story, hence it’s all a lie and the Twin Towers are still there. That is ridiculous! But that is the point in having contradictions so that some people will come to that conclusion! Obviously, the Twin Towers were destroyed and something very big happened, because they are no longer there.

Deception is in the bible purposefully

to deceive

and to reveal!

In other words, it works both ways!

An oxymoron (plural oxymorons or oxymora) (from Greek ὀξύμωρον, “sharp dull”) is a figure of speechthat combines contradictory terms. Oxymorons appear in a variety of contexts, including inadvertent errors such as extremely average and literary oxymorons crafted to reveal a paradox.

Truth is a funny thing, because it is quite possible these contradictions were said

and did actually happen

…..but by who?

Why don’t the experts and scholars of the bible raise the possibility of what seems to be written in black and white in the bible? I get the impression they are hiding from what seems to be obvious …….

but why?

When Jesus came it made such a stir that Jerusalem was destroyed and their temple, Rome was destroyed and Jerusalem was destroyed again 65 years later. Jesus was big news and his coming had major ramifications! And I believe his enemies made sure of the destruction. propaganda and deception to cover up the truth! History was rewritten to hide the truth and many people were slaughtered!

People that lived under the rule of the Romans were slaughtered when they wrote anything that would make the Romans look bad. And I am convinced those times are coming again soon. So when you read Josephus and other writers, keep in mind that they could lose their lives for what they wrote and so maybe there are hidden meanings to their stories. Contradictions may abound in the bible and in the history given by the major history authors (Josephus included, even though his accounts seem to be false IMO) to point us to the truth while avoiding the threat of death for us to be able to discern via archeology and other avenues and the unfolding, at the right time! Possibly the power that caused so much destruction was something other than just the Romans, because they also suffered and suffer now, because they lack the truth and are deceived…..they just don’t realize it!

Daniel 7:25

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High,

and think to change times and laws:

and they shall be given into his hand

until

time and times and the dividing of time.

I think that is what is meant by the words “time and times and the dividing of times” is what has been written about that time and the deception about those times.


I think we are in the times prophesied by Daniel and specifically

the “Dividing of time”.


Please read the following fantastic article I found on the internet which is linked next:

The Reliance of Luke-Acts on the Writings of Flavius Josephus

…..”So, Steve Mason, associate Professor of Humanities at York University, Ontario asks:

“If Luke did not know of Josephus’ work, how did this language suggest itself to him?”[5]….


Daniel is talking about he, the prince that was to come,

the prince that Jesus warns us about in the gospel of John.

So when you link to this site below by Paul Carlson and/or read my articles that talk about contradictions in the bible

keep in mind that just because there are contradictions

doesn’t mean it did not occur!

===========

New Testament Contradictions (1995)

Paul Carlson

A. WHEN – BEFORE OR DURING PASSOVER?

“…….In Matthew, Mark and Luke the last supper takes place on the first day of the Passover (Matthew 26:17, Mark 14:12, Luke 22:7).

In John’s gospel it takes place a day earlier and Jesus is crucified on the first day of the Passover (John 19:14).…….”

============


The Blood Covenant at the Last Supper

in the Synoptic Gospels seems to be a bit odd

since Jesus had not died yet!


I know I must seem like I’m just quibbling about small details,

(although they are not small to me)

but

since it is a contract

it seems to me it should be very clear and concise!


All I can tell is that this NEW TESTAMENT/covenant

is for “many”

or for


“you” which was “them” (the disciples sitting at the table).


Why the controversy?

Can’t they even agree on what the “New Testament” /covenant is,

and who it is between,

and what it is for?


The reason this is so IMPORTANT to me is that I have found many problems in the Synoptic Gospels

and have an inclination

to distrust their word of the Word.

New Testament

the collection of the books of the Bible that were produced by the early Christian church, comprising the Gospels, Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles, and the Revelation of St. John the Divine.
the covenant between god and humans in which the dispensation of grace is revealed through Jesus Christ
==============================================

Could the

“Covenant with many”

spoken about by Daniel be the

“Covenant with many”

made at the Last Supper

in the Synoptic Gospels?


Makes sense to me!


If so, then who confirms this covenant?


======================================

Whoever confirms this covenant could be the “he” in verse Daniel 9:27

In my last article on another blog, I wrote called Abomination of Desolation: Part one

(which is also linked here and at the bottom of this post)

the Synoptic Jesus in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke

talks about desolation:

Matthew 23:38

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Luke 13:35

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate:

and verily I say unto you,

Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say,

Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.


=============================

They themselves

(The Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke)

testify to the

“Desolation” and a “Covenant with Many”

===========================

Remember:

the Covenant is not in tbe Gospel of John

nor is desolation mentioned.


========================
Daniel 9:26
26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
—————–
Daniel 9:27
27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
————-
Whoever that prince is that “he” is referring to is the one that causes the sacrifice and the oblation to cease., etc
after the Messiah is cut off.

I believe it is the the same prince that Jesus of the Gospel of John warns us about:
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
—————-
Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh,

and hath nothing in me.

——————

From the sounds of His warnings the prince of this world would be coming very soon,
not waiting 2000 years later!
I assume that is why Jesus says NOW twice.
“Now” could have a double meaning?
*********
The first time you hear about the prince of this world (in the Gospel of John)
is at the Jewish Feast in Jerusalem
after Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead in Bethany when the Greeks arrive to that Jewish Feast to see Jesus.
I think that was a sign about this prince of this world.


===============================
I believe that the Covenant at the Last Supper was made with the prince of this world,
and he broke the covenant and desolation occurred.

I DO NOT BELIEVE GOD THE FATHER OR HIS TRUE SON ARE LIARS!
I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT JESUS OF NAZARETH WRITTEN ABOUT IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN
WOULD MAKE A COVENANT AND THEN BREAK IT
AND THEN CAUSE DESOLATION
SO THEREFORE WHOEVER DOES THIS IS THE LIAR
AND IS NOT THE TRUE MESSIAH!!!!!

The reason I believe this is because this Covenant at the Last Supper
is not in the Gospel of John
and John does not mention it later in his gospel.

The only gospels to mention desolation are two of the Synoptic Gospels

in the past tense:


Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
—————–

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate:
and verily I say unto you,
Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say,Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
———————————

Here are some interesting comparisons of Paul and Josephus.
PLEASE READ:

Flavious Josephus And the Apostle Paul Were the Same Person?, page 1

and there are many more examples which I have included in other articles about
Josephus Flavius and Joseph of Arimathea.
PLEASE READ:
Maybe if we looked at things a bit differently, events like Masada and Yodfat and the discrepancies of the archeological evidence vs. Josephus Flavius’s historical account
might make more sense…….
Perhaps since no evidence of Jewish bones have been found at the site of Masada
could there have been a resurrection of the living?
I don’t know of course, but it is worth considering!

Josephus Flavius’s historical account and the archeological evidence do NOT match,
so I wonder what really did happen at Masada and Yodfat
and why would Josephus make up stories of mass suicide of JEWS!
that seems to have not happened at all?
If a mass suicide did not occur, why would Josephus lie about it???
Is he trying to promote suicide as a heroic sacrificial act for Jews or is he trying to infer their inferiority?
What would be the point?
He did seem to turn on his own country and people from what I have read about him and by him,
if, in fact, he was Jewish?
But then wasn’t HITLER Jewish? And we do not want to forget that lesson!
Or was he leaving us clues???
Why would he lie about it?
If there had been a victory by the Romans
why not write about it?

From his writings. he seemed to be kind of sick in the head or had some kind of deep insanity. His accounts of what happened show lots of inside information, even what people were actually thinking
and he seemed to be in charge !!!
His paranoia may be a result of knowing the thoughts of the people and their plots against him.
If you read his works they are quite descriptive of maniacal sadistic manipulative type behavior
and he seemed to enjoy the destruction and the deceptions of the people!


It must be that he is trying to hide who he is!


WHY?


Could Josephus Flavius be the “prince” ?


Could he have rewritten history and written the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke)
to cover up the truth
about Jesus of Nazareth
and replace himself
as the Messiah?
IE
THE DEVIL
Could he have taken the records in the Temple in Jerusalem as he says he did,
rewritten parts of the OT to bolster his Synoptic Gospels,
composed other books from The Book of ACTS and the rest?
Could he have changed the Genealogy records or destroyed them as others say they no longer exist to cover up
WHO HE REALLY IS?


Could he have been the one to make a covenant with many?


Could Josephus be Cephus?


Makes sense to me!

THE STONE

????????????????????????????????

Could Josephus Flavius Son of Matthew be Joseph of ARIMathea

(ARI means lion. and eagle)

Ari is also a very GREEK name.
ARISTOTLE

Jacqueline Kennedy married Aristotle Onassis which in itself seems very odd when you think about it!
Especially since recently ART of New Wineskins with *his propaganda site* IMO
implied that the head wound of the beast spoken about in Revelation
was President Kennedy’s assassination and that President Barrack Obama’s head vein?/scar? had something to do with this prophecy!
The Devil and his legions are in a hurry for lots and lots of reasons!

Since finishing this post today,
I have watched some you-tubes of the moments of President Kennedy’s assassination, because of what I have been learning and writing and it looks pretty scary. I have seen them a hundred times before and always gave Jacky the benefit of doubt because she is a female, very pretty, soft spoken and his wife,
but Jacqueline’s behavior before and after, are disconcerting to say the least!

Here is what I see NOW:
She is fiddling with him as he is shot the first time, then Connelly looks back and she looks at Connelly and he is shot, she looks back at her husband and gets closer and under him and he is shot again and the blood spray goes up, then
it looks as if she has something in her right hand after the second shot.
Possibly, lost that object when she pushed her husband over and fled to the trunk of the car to get whatever was back there,and it looks like a tube of lipstick because of the way it stays on the trunk of the car. She pursues it on the trunk of the car and gets it and gets back and hunches down with everyone else.
*April 2nd 2011 Just watched this video again a few times and it looks like she is the only one that seems to be busy …..very active….and in control…….everyone else seems to be reacting.
Everyone else seems to be in slow motion and she is in very fast motion.
Whoever her focus is on seems to be before that person is shot! IMO
Which is very disturbing!


Here is the video:

And the Secret Service act peculiar in the front seat, the driver and the passenger and the guy that left his post at the back corner  by President Kennedy.

But WHO knows with digital mastering and all of the coverups!

The same applies to Mel Gibson and the tapes of his rantings. My husband is a sound engineer and voices can also be spliced and diced and altered …….digitally mastered. It isn’t as if he doesn’t have plenty of emotional voice samples in all of the movies he has been involved with.
WHO knows!
I just would not place much faith in visual or sound technology.
I hope it isn’t a technique or practice employed to defame, destroy and rob individuals who have money, influence or sway,
but aren’t in alignment with the
One World Government, One World Religion, and One World Finance
fostered by Pope Benedict XVI and his legions.


THAT WOULD BE A NIGHTMARE
but maybe it is a warning and a sign of things to come!

Another time and on another post I watched a you-tube which also showed

peculiar behavior of the Secret Service


and that was behind Donald Rumsfeld when he misspoke

about the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

This is the post:

“A very interesting you -tube I watched recently of Donald Rumsfeld slip of the tongue, and I have linked it. Pay close attention to what he says about the the shooting down of the plane and the Pentagon and the reaction of the people in the background. Makes me think the Secret Service are a bit more powerful than I ever imagined. The Treasury Department runs the Secret Service. That is interesting since we are in debt up to our EARS. President Bush SR used to head the CIA. Hmmmmmmmmm. I wonder if Rumsfeld didn’t do that on purpose for our benefit? You never know! I hope so.”

The article below shows the relationship of banking

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Many people keep looking for a place called Arimathea, and so far there is none.

Could Josephus Flavius/Joseph of ARI-Mathea have been the Fear of the Jews?

Could Saul/Paul be Josephus Flavius?

I Am That I Am (The Sign) -Revised *

I AM THAT I AM (Part two)


I Am the True Vine


If you have read any of my articles I have a basic theme throughout most of my posts on my blogs and it is that the Synoptic (Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke), Acts and many other epistles are false! I believe they represent a false Messiah and a False Prophet! I believe I have proven beyond a reasonable doubt quite often that they contradict each other and are antithetical to the gospel of John. They promote a political agenda to control the people and quell the truth about Jesus and his message.I think the synoptic gospels were written by thieves of the true Word of God and his true apostles.

I believe these guys killed the true apostles, stole what they could from them, altered their messages, rewrote history to cover up their crime, in collusion with the the powers that be at the time to create their own version of Jesus and God.

The contradictions are pretty apparent if you compare the gospels to each other and read the bible critically. For many years, I didn’t study, but just read what other people thought and still kept running into a cement wall. I don’t think I have all the answers, yet nor do I think I will attain that ever in my lifetime. I write in my blogs as I am learning and hope it will help others that have also questioned the same things I question that is written about God and Jesus.

I don’t think it is healthy to accept what we have been fed for years as “the truth” I think it is healthier to question, study and discuss. I don’t think the ecclesiastic entity appreciates our freedom to question it’s authority on their interpretation of what is written in the bible but who said they have the right to quell our search for the truth? To them it is Apostacy,,,the falling away…. I say it is Apostacy from them, and falling away from them. They think they have the answers…..

I dont think they have the answers, so thats why I write my blogs. Enuf said on that!

Lust for Power-Part two


James 2:14-26

14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?22Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.25Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

John 6:28-29

28Then said they unto him,

What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

29Jesus answered and said unto them,

This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

Here we have a major contention

between Jesus written about in the Gospel of John

and the book of James!


James boastingly says says you have to prove your faith by your works!

Jesus (in the Gospel of John) says believing is the work and does not add that faith is made perfect by works because obviously faith is the work!

———————-

By the way, how does James know what the devils believe? Or for that matter who the devils believe? Is James an expert on devil knowledge?

Who wrote the book of James?

Was it a disciple?

It was written by James, the half-brother of Jesus (according to the earliest sources). James was martyred in 62 AD.

Galatians 1:19 & 2:9

BTW: There were two disciples named “James”:

1) James (the son of Zebedee) and brother of the disciple John.
&
1) James (the son of Alphaeus) who was the brother of Matthew (who was also known as Levi).
Galatians 1:19
19But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.
Galatians 2:9
9And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

John 19:30
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

James 1:15
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

I wonder why James…….the supposed “brother of Jesus or disciple of Jesus” would use the phrase

It is finished

when speaking of lust…..sin…….bringing forth death. The same phrase that the Gospel of John says that were the last words Jesus said when he was crucified.

IT is as if James is saying that lust……sin…….

brought forth the death of Jesus

by his own character!!!

Interesting!


BTW I did a check on the phrase“It is finished” in the online bible (KJV) and it is

ONLY USED ON TWO OCCASIONS! That is pretty coincidental and very rare that this exact phrase is used only two times in the bible!

Please follow the link: IT IS FINISHED

Also, you should note that the above article says that James was martyred in the year of 62 and yet he conveniently refers to the phrase “It is finished” in opposition to the teaching of Jesus in the Gospel of John.

Matthew 13:55
Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Acts 4:36
And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,

NERO

Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (15 December AD 37 – 9 June AD 68),

[1] born Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus


Whose apostles surnamed Joses to Barnabus? Which Jesus?

Luke wrote Acts and the gospel of Luke, but just about everything in the gospel of Luke is antithetical to the gospel of John. Why?

Yet in the book of Zechariah it is the four Carpenter’s who scatter the sheep so that no man did lift up his head.

I am assuming Zechariah means THE ROMAN IRON GRIP on mankind!

Zechariah 1:18-21

18Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.

19And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.

20And the LORD shewed me four carpenters.

21Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head:

The Brethren of Jesus did not believe in Him as stated in the gospel of John.

James did not believe in Him!

James is one of the 4 carpenters i,e. one of the horns spoken of in the book of Zechariah!

James is the brother of Barnabus (Joses)!

The Abomination of Desolation Part 2


The Brazen Serpent

The Christological Symbol (Brazen Serpent Sculpture), created by Italian artist, Giovanni Fantoni, stands atop Mount Nebo. It is symbolic of the bronze serpent created by Moses in the wilderness (Numbers 21:4-9) and the cross upon which Jesus was crucified (John 3:14).

Mount Nebo

According to the 2 Maccabees 2:4-7, the Prophet Jeremiah hid the tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant here.

Recent history

Pope Benedict XVI visited the site on May 9, 2009, gave a speech, and looked out from the top of the mountain in the direction of Jerusalem.

ISRAEL: The pope’s gifts–taking stock

Significance to Christianity

“As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life“.[11]

Hezekiah destroyed the brazen serpent, calling it Nehushtan, or “a lump of brass.” From this it was argued by some that rulers in Church and State have authority to prohibit, in the public worship of God, the use of things that have been abused to Idolatry. [1] But this likely falls short of the true significance of Hezekiah’s actions – the condemnation of idol worship that has replaced true worship. Conservative scholars note a similar episode in the life of Gideon [12] as a theological parallel. [2][3] The Apostle Paul condemns this principle of replacement in Romans 1.22-23, 25.

Nehushtan

The creation of a bronze snake (the Nehustan) is attributed to Moses in the Book of Numbers (Numbers 21:6).

The Talmud, Rosh Hashanah 29a, asserts that it was not the copper serpent that healed the Israelites, but it was their looking up and submitting themselves to God.

——————————————————-

Numbers 21:5-9

5And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

6And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

7Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

8And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

9And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

———————————————————————————–

2 Kings 18:4

4He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.

————————————————————————————

Book of Zephaniah

Some scholars believe that much of the material does not date from the days of King Josiah (ca. 640-609 BC), but is actually post-monarchic. Three general possibilities are that a person, possibly named Zephaniah, prophesied the words of the book of Zephaniah; the general message of a Josianic prophet is conveyed through the book of Zephaniah; or the name could have been employed, either during the monarchic or post-monarchic period, as a ‘speaking voice’, possibly for rhetorical purposes. Although it is possible that a post-monarchic author assumed the persona of a monarchic prophet to add credibility to his message, there is no evidence to support such a claim.

Zephaniah

THE LINK PRECEDING states that Zephaniah the prophet of the Book of Zephaniah is the only prophet of the prophets in the OT that gives a partial genealogy of himself.

I wonder why Zephaniah would give his partial genealogy and what difference does it make? Why bother?

I looked up the gospel of Matthew to see if Hezekiah was part of the genealogy of Jesus that Matthew proposes in his gospel and it does include Hezekiah in the NIV and Ezekias in the KJV:

Matthew 1:9 NIV

9Uzziah the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,

Matthew 1:9 KJV

9And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;

I am assuming that Hezekiah and Ezekias are one and the same person, but I don’t know!

I believe that Zephaniah supports the Gospel of Matthew’s genealogy up to Hezekiah/Ezekias to support himself as a true prophet and the Gospel of Matthew is using the prophets book of Zephaniah (his genealogy) to support his claim to being the Messiah with the other two synoptic renditions of Jesus (Gospels of Mark and Luke) in collusion with the Q source, Paul, his family, followers and cohorts and Josephus Flavius son of Matthew (historian) and his account of history

to quell the truth about Jesus written about in the Gospel of John.

and I believe it is not by accident, but purposeful with the intent to deceive and promote a false Jesus. If you read my posts you will see lots and lots of examples to support my belief.

There is a world of difference between the Gospel of John and the other gospels and they should be examined carefully!

Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

I think history has been multiplied and divided to hide the prophetic events people are expecting to come that have already occurred and to confuse the masses about who Jesus was, when he came, and why he came. It is not a mistake or just differing viewpoints of that time that can explain the differences between the Synoptic Gospels and the Gospel of John!

Josephus and the holy books of Jerusalem

Below is an article presented by ChristianAnswers with a listing of many prophecies about the identification of Jesus:

Messianic Prophecies

“More specificially, he would be of the house of David (2 Samuel 7:12-16Jeremiah 23:5Psalm 89:3-4). Fulfilled: See Christ’s genealogy in Matthew 1Luke 1:273269. Note: Since the the Jewish genealogical records were destroyed in 70 A.D., along with the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, it would not be possible for a Messiah imposter who was born later to prove his lineage back to David and thus fulfill this prophecy.”

Do you think this may mean that there might actually have been a false Messiah that wants to replace the true Messiah back in those days?

It is no accident that the records were destroyed!

SO anyone that comes saying he is the Messiah in this present age OR IN THE PAST cannot possibly prove his IDENTIFICATION BY HIS GENEALOGY!

The messiah is supposed to come from the line of David, but if you recall one of David’s sons called Soloman had hundreds of wives!

I believe the Abomination of Desolation occurred then, but often times prophecies have a dual fulfillment and meaning so it could be possible that it will happen again. Also SOME FULFILLMENTs OF PROPHECIES ARE FALSE FULFILLMENTS CREATED AND IMPLEMENTED BY A FALSE PROPHET AND A FALSE MESSIAH TO PROVE THEIR FALSE ID-ENTITY AND FALSE PROPHECIES!

The gospels of Matthew and Luke WROTE that there was Desolation:

Matthew 23:38

Beholdyour house is left unto you desolate.

Luke 13:35

Beholdyour house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

DON’T YOU FIND THAT THESE STATEMENTS PROVE THAT AN ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION HAS ALREADY OCCURRED desolation for sure. AND BOTH THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW AND THE GOSPEL OF LUKE SEEM TO REFLECT THIS IN THESE STATEMENTS (ATTRIBUTED TO JESUS) ABOVE AND ALSO SEEM TO BE RELISHING IT!

THEY ARE TRYING TO SAY THAT THE MESSIAH HIMSELF SAYS THESE WORDS PROPHETICALLY IN THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW

YET, IF IT ALREADY HAPPENED

HOW IS THAT PROPHETIC?

IF A PROPHECY IS WRITTEN ABOUT THE PAST

SHOULDN’T IT BE CONSIDERED HISTORY

AND A FALSE PROPHECY!

If the Gospel of Matthew is looking back in history to make prophetic statements about things of the past (implying the desolation of Jerusalem and the Temple) obviously the genealogical records were  destroyed by the time the gospel of Matthew was completed then why bother adding genealogy of Jesus to his text? There is no way to prove or disprove his genealogy and the gospel writer of Matthew must realize this Catch-22.

It seems to me that the statements about

‘beholding their desolation’ etc.,

written by the false prophets and false shepherds/wolves

who wrote the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke

are the poison

that Jesus warns his disciples

about at the last supper

in the Gospel of John!

I believe that the story in Numbers 21:4-9 is a prophetic picture pointing us to what is written in the Gospel of John because Jesus knew what would be written about him in the other gospels. When a person discovers the lies in the Synoptic Gospels or discovers the contradictions in the bible. it can be disconcerting and take a person’s faith down a notch or two and for some can even make them lose faith totally in what is written. I have come often to different levels of despair about the contradictions because of what is written in the gospels, the OT,  and in the history information afforded us, but when I read the gospel of John and read about Jesus in most parts, it helps me to believe when I am at my lowest.

I honestly think the devil is in the details of the gospels! I think we have been robbed of so much by the powers in the church that supposedly protected the gospels. Nevertheless there are morsels left in the gospels to hold us over.

I have a hard time with people that say not to believe because there are contradictions. It is like saying there was never a temple because now there is a mosque sitting in the same spot. That’s ridiculous. Or when someone says that the holocaust did not occur. We luckily have photos to show the evidence of the holocaust which we did not have in the biblical days. The only way to keep the truth in the gospels was to allow the lies, otherwise all would have been lost. So when you find a contradiction in the bible and there are many, many of them, it is a good idea to do research in other books, gospels, anywhere that you can find information (and also pray) and eventually the truth will shine through the lies that have been sown purposefully to trip you up and wear you down.

They are the stones!

That’s why I believe that what happened to the Hebrews in Numbers was for this generation also to look past the lies and see!

Read the Gospel of John and learn it well and it will help to see more clearly.

As far as the Synoptic Gospels there are some outstanding parts that very well could be true, but mixed in are some parts that just do not measure up to the standards of reliability.

In many ways life itself is a contradiction. We are living in times that are very similar to the confusion that engulfed those days in Israel but we now have access to more information than ever before and we should take advantage of what we have been given to sort it out, so to speak.

There is no comparison to any other than who, what and why Jesus came!

Even if you have to read between the lines He is a miracle!

 Life is a miracle but full of a lot of diversions, slippery slopes, pit falls, and lessons, etc. which makes life hard to live sometimes.

Josephus and His Footprints


Wiki: Josephus problem

The problem is named after Flavius Josephus, a Jewish historian living in the 1st century. According to Josephus’ account of the siege of Yodfat, he and his 40 comrade soldiers were trapped in a cave, the exit of which is blocked by Romans. They chose suicide over capture and decided that they would form a circle and start killing themselves using a step of three. Josephus states that by luck or maybe by the hand of God (modern scholars point out that Josephus was a well educated scholar and predicted the outcome), he and another man remained the last and gave up to the Romans.

Using a step of three?  What does this mean?

Alter steps?

OR DOES JOSEPHUS MEAN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC STEPS OF SAINTHOOD?

Steps to Sainthood: the third being a martyr?

Third Step: To be beatified and recognized as a “Blessed,” one miracle acquired through the candidate’s intercession is required in addition to recognition of heroic virtue (or martyrdom in the case of a martyr).

Wiki: Siege of Yodfat

The Siege of Yodfat (Hebrew: יוֹדְפַת‎, also Jotapata, Iotapata, Yodefat) was a 47 day siege by Roman forces of the Jewish town of Yodfat which took place in 67 CE, during theGreat Revolt. Led by Roman General Vespasian and his son Titus, both future emperors, the siege ended with the sacking of the town, the deaths of most of its inhabitants and the enslavement of the rest. It was the second bloodiest battle of the revolt, surpassed only by the sacking of Jerusalem, and the longest bar Jerusalem and Masada. The siege was chronicled by Josephus, who had personally commanded the Jewish forces at Yodfat and was subsequently captured by the Romans. [2]

I have a big problems with the story

told by Flavius Josephus!

1) My first concern is why does Josephus not tell how the people committed suicide or killed each other EXCEPT that they cut each others neck.

2) Who decided that it would be every third person?

3) Who decided where each person would stand?

4) and who decided where to start the circle!

It sounds to me like a cruel joke!

If I were there I would be switching places a bunch.  It makes no sense! I cannot imagine that all 41 of those soldiers (“forty persons of eminency that had concealed themselves”) would all be desiring the same fate of death! What kind of military people were they, or were they a different kind of army? Was this cave actually a choking point?

IF they were going to kill each other so that they would not commit suicide, why not fight the enemy to the death?

This story is full of holes!

I thought Flavius Josephus was a general, but as he says he was assisted by

a certain supernatural providence!

Interesting choice of words!

The next link is a simulation game of the Josephus dilemma!

Please click on the title below:

Josephus Flavius game

Josephus Flavius was a famous Jewish historian of the first century at the time of the Second Temple destruction. During the Jewish-Roman war he got trapped in a cave with a group of 40 soldiers surrounded by romans. The legend has it that preferring suicide to capture, the Jews decided to form a circle and, proceeding around it, to kill every third remaining person until no one was left. Josephus, not keen to die, quickly found the safe spot in the circle and thus stayed alive.

If Josephus was trapped in a cave with 40 other soldiers or eminent persons, then there were a total of 41 people in the cave, including himself. He says that two people survived this suicide pact, Josephus and some other person.

Why doesn’t he include the name of the other person that survived with him?

And as he was very desirous neither to be condemned by the lot, nor, if he had been left to the last, to imbrue his right hand in the blood of his countrymen, he persuaded him to trust his fidelity to him, and to live as well as himself.

Basically, Josephus bribed the other guy (obviously in a private way) so that the others would not hear and which must have been in his concscience,

which means that Josephus acted as a Devil!

How did Josephus persuade this other man to go along to get along? The other men were there…did they not notice Josephus offering “his fidelity” and “the good life” to this other fellow?


Sounds like a bribe to me!

IN the simulation game in the link above Josephus would have been the 16th person or the 31st person in the circle to survive!

What a difference it makes where he stood in that circle!

Did he arrange the soldiers (eminent persons)? Wasn’t he in charge?

Josephus says that they drew lots!

How do you draw lots to kill every third person ?

Here is what Josephus says happened, but it still does not make any sense since his 40 fellow cavemen were EXTREMELY desirous that he die with them, so he says!

Why in the world would they (his fellow cavemen) wait for him to be second to the last, or the last?

Please read what Josephus said happened below:

7. However, in this extreme distress, he was not destitute of his usual sagacity; but trusting himself to the providence of God, he put his life into hazard [in the manner following]: “And now,” said he, “since it is resolved among you that you will die, come on, let us commit our mutual deaths to determination by lot. He whom the lot falls to first, let him be killed by him that hath the second lot, and thus fortune shall make its progress through us all; nor shall any of us perish by his own right hand, for it would be unfair if, when the rest are gone, somebody should repent and save himself.” This proposal appeared to them to be very just; and when he had prevailed with them to determine this matter by lots, he drew one of the lots for himself also. He who had the first lot laid his neck bare to him that had the next, as supposing that the general would die among them immediately; for they thought death, if Josephus might but die with them, was sweeter than life; yet was he with another left to the last, whether we must say it happened so by chance, or whether by the providence of God. And as he was very desirous neither to be condemned by the lot, nor, if he had been left to the last, to imbrue his right hand in the blood of his countrymen, he persuaded him to trust his fidelity to him, and to live as well as himself.

There is nothing about the third step in this account!

Josephus lied and connived for his cavemen to kill each other instead of suicide or fighting the Romans, if you believe Josephus!

“let us commit our mutual deaths to determination by lot

It was Josephus that made up this brilliant plan to draw lots!

These guys must have been out of their minds, definitely deceived,  perhaps from fasting, exhaustion, or something else.

I don’t believe it!

I think he murdered them, probably with poison!

Remember Mithradatism?

The mustard seed was used for anecdotes for many things including scorpian bites and poison in Egypt!

Botanical: Thlaspi arvense

—Synonym—Pennycress.
—Part Used—Seeds.

Mithridate Mustard, Thlaspi arvense, grows higher than Treacle Mustard; the leaves are small and narrower, smooth, toothed, arrow-shaped at the base. The flowers are small and white, growing on long branches, the seed-vessels form a round pouch, flat, with very broad wings, earning for the plant its other name of Pennycress.

Recall Cephas in the BIBLE?  Josephus is Cephas.

JOSEPHUS is the STONE!

Remember that Paulus said:

1 Corinthians 3:22

22Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your’s;

Another bribe!

Whereupon Vespasian sent immediately and zealously two tribunes, Paulinus and Gallicanus, and ordered them to give Josephus their right hands as a security for his life, and to exhort him to come up.

Galatians 2:9
And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision

================================

I have never heard of a general in any military who would get his men to commit suicide or murder their fellow soldier beside them, but instead would hold off the enemy as long as possible, or fight the enemy to the death, or surrender! But it depends on what kind of army we are speaking of. I have a feeling these men were priests!

Wasn’t murdering each other a sin, to the Jews?

This does not make sense!

Josephus Problem

He did try to abandon them early on in “his own account”, because he was the false shepherd, the false christ (of the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke), the instigator, and the destroyer!

Josephus seems to know everything and even what people thought

miles and miles away.

He “set up” the Jews for destruction.

I think he is the devil!

The EYE of Horus!

The Prince of this world that Jesus spoke about that was coming! (In the Gospel of John)

“Thou, O Vespasian, thinkest no more than that thou hast taken Josephus himself captive; but I come to thee as a messenger of greater tidings; for had not I been sent by God to thee, I knew what was the law of the Jews in this case?

Now Josephus is bribing Vespasian!

(He sounds like the fallen angel Lucifer!)

IN fact, he sounds like the Gospel of Luke’s angel that visited Mary!

Even Paul’s angel in the book of Acts!

And then Josephus continues his bribe to Vespasian:

….and how it becomes generals to die. Dost thou send me to Nero? For why? Are Nero’s successors till they come to thee still alive? Thou, O Vespasian, art Caesar and emperor, thou, and this thy son. Bind me now still faster, and keep me for thyself, for thou, O Caesar, are not only lord over me, but over the land and the sea, and all mankind; and certainly I deserve to be kept in closer custody than I now am in, in order to be punished, if I rashly affirm any thing of God.”

YUCK!

Sounds very slithery!

Siege of Yodfat

Yosef Ben-Matityahu had hidden in one of the caves that litter the site, along with 40 other prominent citizens of Yodfat. Although Ben-Matityahu was in favour of surrendering to the Romans, the majority of his comrades opted to kill themselves rather than fall into Roman hands. [4] As suicide is considered sinful, they decided to draw lots to kill each other. Ben-Matityahu and another man, however, were the last to survive, and both resolved to give themselves up. [18] Taken to see the Roman general, Ben-Matityahu prophesied that Vespasian would one day become emperor. Vespasian subsequently spared the rebel leader, who began collaborating with the Romans. At first a slave, he would later be freed and be granted Roman citizenship as Flavius Josephus. [4][19]

 

I looked up what happened in history in 1631 to see if anything pertaining to that number of the Josephus JOTAPATA survivors which were # 16 and  # 31 of the infamous circle suicide had occurred (just for the heck of it) and I found a few interesting facts WHICH I believe ARE related …..

The ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS in 1631

AND MORE STRANGER THAN THAT

King James Bible, 1631 edition –
One Word Makes a World of Difference
In the 1631 edition printing of the King James Bible, in Exodus 20:14, a very small word was forgotten by the printers. The word “not”. This changed the 7th commandment to say Thou shalt commit adultery!

Botched 1631 King James Bible

==========================================

Archaeology of Yodfat

One find of particular interest is an 8 by 11 cm stone slab, found in the residential area on the eastern slope of Yodfat, [9] covered on both sides with scratched drawings made by a pointed tool. One side depicts a building with a triangular roof upon a podium, a small tree and a harp, and is thought to portray a Nefesh (a traditional Judean mausoleum). The other side of the stone features a crab, the astrological symbol of the Hebrew month of Tammuz, on the first day of which Yodfat fell. The stone is believed to have been the work of a besieged Jew anticipating his own impending doom, [7] [22] and its likeness has been etched on a modern memorial to the defenders of Yodfat placed at the foot of the Roman siege ramp.

made by a pointed tool

Perhaps an aul?

I mean, an awl!

Capstone

“One side depicts a building with a triangular roof upon a podium”

Psalm 118:22
The stone the builders rejected has become the
capstone;

Zechariah 4:7

“What are you, O mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’ “

Matthew 21:42
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ” ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the
capstone ; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’ ?

Mark 12:10
Haven’t you read this scripture: ” ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the
capstone ;

Luke 20:17
Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: ” ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the
capstone

Acts 4:11
He is ” ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the
capstone.

1 Peter 2:7
Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone, “

Funny, the Gospel of John says nothing about a capstone!

But the Gospel of Luke says:

Luke 20:18
Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

a small tree

Probably the mustard tree which is small and is told about via parables in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke,

but not in the gospel of John!

and a harp

More than likely referring to Nero or

maybe a fallen angel!

The ANGEL OF DEATH!

Maybe HAARP is the meaning to this sign?

a Nefesh

and is thought to portray a Nefesh (a traditional Judean mausoleum)

A Crab

a crab, the astrological symbol of the Hebrew month of Tammuz, on the first day of which Yodfat fell

It looks more like an eye to me!

EYE OF HORUS

Then there looks to be a picture of a scarab which does not seem to be mentioned?

It is voice from the past which could have been a warning, a message,

or could be a footprint,

IE

A signatureA possible premonition?

Yodfat

In June, we found the water cisterns completely full of water

but Josephus said in chapter 7 of Book 3:

12. Now the besieged had plenty of corn within the city, and indeed of all necessaries, but they wanted water, because there was no fountain in the city, the people being there usually satisfied with rain water; yet is it a rare thing in that country to have rain in summer, and at this season, during the siege, they were in great distress for some contrivance to satisfy their thirst;

============================

Book 3 of

The Wars Of The Jews

Or

The History Of The Destruction Of Jerusalem

Interesting !!

In Number 3 of Chapter 2 of Book 3 Josephus talks about Niger which I have linked.

Remember Niger of the Bible?

Acts 13:1
Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called
Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.

But their former ill fortune followed them, as the consequence of their unskilfulness, and other deficiencies in war; for Antonius laid ambushes for them in the passages they were to go through, where they fell into snares unexpectedly, and where they were encompassed about with horsemen, before they could form themselves into a regular body for fighting, and were above eight thousand of them slain; so all the rest of them ran away, and with them Niger, who still did a great many bold exploits in his flight. However, they were driven along together by the enemy, who pressed hard upon them, into a certain strong tower belonging to a village called Bezedeh However, Antonius and his party, that they might neither spend any considerable time about this tower, which was hard to be taken, nor suffer their commander, and the most courageous man of them all, to escape from them, they set the wall on fire; and as the tower was burning, the Romans went away rejoicing, as taking it for granted that Niger was destroyed; but he leaped out of the tower into a subterraneous cave, in the innermost part of it, and was preserved; and on the third day afterward he spake out of the ground to those that with great lamentation were searching for him, in order to give him a decent funeral; and when he was come out, he filled all the Jews with an unexpected joy, as though he were preserved by God’s providence to be their commander for the time to come.

4. And now Vespasian took along with him his army from Antioch, (which is the metropolis of Syria,

How does Josephus know these particulars?

THE PARABLE OF FAITH – PART ONE


PART ONE

The other night I was watching Face Off with my daughter who loves the artistry of makeup. The show is very creative and a lot of fun to watch. The theme of the show that night was about Fears: The contestants had to create a monster from a particular fear or phobia. While inspecting the monsters that were created Tom Sevinian American actorstuntmandirector, award-winning special effects and makeup artist and one of the judges on the shoe that night mentioned a person he knew from a famous horror movie who had scars on his neck for many years that were the result of mustard gas. He said the wounds had never healed, but remained open sores.

 I challenge whoever reads this series about the mustard seed parable

to truthfully consider the possibility that this parable

is fraudulent, deceptive, and misleading!

===================

FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED

Matthew 13:31-32

31Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

32Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

Matthew 17:14-21

14And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,15Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.16And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.17Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.18And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.19Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?20And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

The disciples did not have the faith as a grain of mustard seed

to help banish the devil from the child,

yet it is only faith of a grain of mustard seed that can move mountains!

Jesus in the gospel of Matthew says that the kind of devil the disciples were attempting to banish from the child would not depart without prayer and fasting.

So their faith was not enough,

EVEN if they had faith as a grain of mustard seed!

HUGE CONTRADICTION!

The gospel of John does not include the parable of the Mustard Seed!

Why?

Because the parable is a lie!

I wonder why Jesus (in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke) did not demonstrate this faith by MOVING/REMOVING a real mountain?

I MAINTAIN THAT THE JESUS SPEAKING IN THE GOSPELS OF MATTHEW, MARK, AND LUKE COULD NOT MOVE/REMOVE A MOUNTAIN!

What kind of mountain are they referring to?

Could this parable be referring to

Isaiah 14:12-14

12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:

I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

It is a great possibility that this is the mountain that the synoptic gospels are referring to in the Parable of the Mustard Seed!

Mark 4:30-32

30And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?31It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:32But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.

Here is an article/blog that discusses the truth about the mustard seed!

PLEASE READ!

In the Bible versus the Quran: the Mustard seed is the smallest of all the seeds on earth

The mustard seed is NOT the smallest seed on earth!

That is an out and out lie!

The World’s Smallest & Largest Seed

The authors of the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke

were either ignorant of the truth about the smallest of seeds on earth,

or they lied!

If they lied about this FACT,

what else have they lied about??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


IN answer to the man’s question as to whether the Quran is an offshoot of the bible, I would respond with a definite YES, at least THE QURAN is an offshoot of the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke!

The Jesus in the three synoptic gospels is not the true Son of God

as I have written about numerous times in most of my articles on my blogs!

Syria has begun moving its chemical weapons stockpile out of storage, U.S. warns 

(Friday, July 13th, 2012)

“Syria has undeclared arsenals of sarin nerve agent, mustard gas, cyanide”

====================

Do you really think the Messiah would compare the kingdom of God to a mustard seed? The Destroyer certainly would, though! 

===================

The mustard seed is not greater than all herbs!

THE HERBS OF THE Ginkgo Biloba IS

GREATER THAN THE MUSTARD HERB!

By the way the birds of the air/fowls of the air lodging in the branches of a mustard tree is a deceptive aspiration.

The birds/fowls of the air are evil spirits!

Remember the parable about faith called the Parable of the Sower where the birds eat the seed (God’s Word) that falls on stoney ground.  The birds are not good and they eat the WORD of God!

FALLEN ANGELS

and PEOPLE THAT SERVE THE DECEPTION

AND SERVE THE EVIL SPIRITS

ARE THE BIRDS AND FOWLS OF THE AIR!

The parable of the Mustard Seed is an invention from a false Messiah

of the false gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke!

HE IS THE DESTROYER!

DEATH

AGAIN,

The gospel of John does not include the parable of the Mustard Seed!

Proverbs 14:12
Thereis a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

It isn’t the size of your faith that matters. You can’t measure love…how can you measure faith? It is faith itself!

The gospel of Luke says that the seed is the Word of God….not the size of faith!

Please Read:

Luke 8:5-15

The Parable of the Mustard Seed and the Parable called The Sower and the Seed seem to be conflicting!

Many people that don’t believe in God, but have faith in themselves, have achieved great heights (good and the bad) on earth,

but nevertheless it isn’t just faith that matters,

in the end it matters in whom we believe!

Please read: I AM THAT I AM LINKED BELOW!

Please compare the synoptic gospels to each other.  If you do compare them you will notice they seem to ying and yang each other in quite a few instances.

Please take note: Whether or not the author of the Gospel of Luke intended to highlight the contradictions of the synoptic gospels, often the Gospel of Luke seems to be the catalyst, at least for me, to notice the differences. Almost as if, in the agreement of events, the Gospel of Luke points to the deception in the synoptic gospels either in his addendum to the Gospels of Matthew and Mark or his diminution of the events in the Gospel of John!

The Gospel of Luke obviously was written after the Gospels of Matthew and Mark!

Then compare the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) with the Gospel of John and see the difference in the events, the personality, and the purpose of the Son of God.

You should notice that the antithesis between the Synoptic Gospels

and the Gospel of John is astounding!


The Truth about the Father and the Son does matter!

How is it That Ye Do Not Understand?


MARK 8:13-21

13And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.14Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.

15And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.16And they reasoned among themselves, saying,

It is because we have no bread.

17And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?18Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not?

and do ye not remember?19When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.

20And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.

21And he said unto them,
How is it that ye do not understand?

======================

  E   I  E  I  O

======================

Someone please tell me what this means!

Is this a trick question?

I hate to sound mean but I think this rendition of Jesus sounds maniacal!

I’ll tell you the truth, I don’t and never have understood what the above means!

I have never perceived, understood, nor seen, neither remembered anyone that does get what the above means!

I don’t think it means anything!  Do you?

(For the longest time I thought this was a mathematical poser.)

The point is he doesn’t want you to understand. It is a mock of Jesus, his disciples, the miracle of feeding of the 5000 etc and

mocking the gospel of John!

————————————-

Lets take these verses a few at a time and figure out what the Synoptic Jesus is trying to swerve:

1)Did they have bread or not?
Obviously, they did have bread because verse 14 states that they had a loaf of bread! So someone is contradicting himself  just in the above verses! They must not have realized that they had bread, because they ask within themselves is it because we have no bread, when they had a loaf of bread.

2) Does the Synoptic Jesus know that they had a loaf of bread?

 Either the Synoptic Jesus doesn’t know that they had a loaf of bread, or he is lying and using his power of suggestion to make them think that they don’t have bread when in actuality they had a loaf of bread as verse 14 states. (If they had a loaf of bread on the ship….why didn’t the Synoptic Jesus know it? If the Synoptic Jesus knew that there was a loaf of bread on the ship why didn’t he just tell them that they had a loaf of bread on the ship?)

3) Is the Synoptic Jesus berating the disciples?

Definitely! The Synoptic Jesus is very good at creating chaos and confusion. He loves to make them look stupid and make himself look oh so smart when in reality he is crazy, but he is so crazy he doesn’t know that he is crazy. (Reminds me of OBAMA.) 

For if he were in his right mind he would say.

Hey guys, there is a loaf of bread on the ship as verse 14 states.

4)What does the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod have to do with whether or not they had taken bread?

Nothing.  Just propaganda, I’m sure!  In these verses Jesus is saying to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Herod and they say, Is it because we have no bread? when they did have bread.

It makes no sense! It is inane.

=============================================

The feeding of the four thousand is not in the gospel of John

and it is not in the Gospel of Luke.

—————————–

Diminishing Jesus written about in the Gospel of John

—————————–

John 6:51
I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

He is the bread that came down from Heaven. So either the Synoptic disciples did not believe that he was the living bread and did not believe the Gospel of John or the Synoptic Jesus forgot to tell them that he was the living bread or he did not know himself that he was the living bread,

or the Synoptic Gospels  are full of HOT AIR

otherwise they would make sense!

This is proof that the Synoptic Jesus is trying to confuse!

Since Jesus is the bread of life and he taught his disciples this concept

in the Gospel of John

why wouldn’t Jesus in the Gospel of Mark just remind them?

Because Jesus of the Gospel of Mark is not the same person

as Jesus of the Gospel of John.

============

Paul wrote 1Corinthians or so the scholars say:

1 Corinthians 2:9

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

Isaiah 64:4
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

Compare to the verses in the Gospel of Mark:

17And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understandhave ye your heart yet hardened?18Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not?

and do ye not remember?19When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.

Did Paul write the Gospel of Mark and Isaiah or did he just add to them?

Maybe. Certainly “his own hand” is in them or someone at the very least that is imitating him.

Josephus Flavius admitted to stealing the Holy Books from the Temple

and took them to Rome of all places

maybe he did it.

==================================

How is it that ye do not understand?

The point is he doesn’t want them to understand!

But as usual he betrays himself: 

Paul was identified with being the Greek-speaking Egyptian that led 4000 murderers in the wilderness in the book of Acts.

Acts 21:38

Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar,

and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?

The point I’m making is that

 Paul is the Synoptic Jesus!

This is proof that the Synoptic Jesus is trying to confuse!

============================================

Megan Kelly of Fox News just said that two Senators now believe that the Sequester is responsible for the bomb blast at the Boston Marathon in Massachusetts which is absolutely ridiculous as is this post demonstrates.

Same kind of ridiculous and insane delusion.

It is not a coincidence that the Newtowners were at this event near where the explosions occurred. I would look into why they were put there and by whom, etc. There were bomb sniffing dogs around and they did not smell the bombs at the beginning of the race  in those areas so that ought to be a big clue.

I’m suspicious of drone usage and involvement.

If you watch drone attacks on line it could easily be altered to mimic a rough bomb

and it makes sense that it is.

Why?

Because the Obama administration said they would not use drone attacks on Americans on American soil.

This is more deadly distraction for Obama and his legion which is his M.O.

Now they have their sites on a bag in front of the fence line at the Marathon yet very few people were affected on that side of the fence line ie the runners. Obviously it was not that bag. On Sean Hannity of Fox News I watched some films as closely as I could (they are pretty quick films) and there was a hole made by something in the middle of the spectators area that was affected which is consistent with a drone strike but people overseas don’t lose their limbs when a drone strikes them, right? If it was in the trash can that was on the outside of the fence line it also would have affected the runners……doesn’t add up

and as far as Napolitan’s suggestion that there is no broader plot

….can you believe anything she says?

Isn’t she the lady lying about ammunition.

DHS excuses for buying so much ammo don’t add up

Just move along, folks. There’s nothing to see here.

That’s the attitude of the Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano when it comes to scrutiny of her agency’s massive purchase requests for billions – that’s right, billions – of rounds of ammunition, along with 7,000 “personal defense weapons” (they would be called assault weapons if owned by private citizens), and 2,700 mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) armored vehicles of the type used to protect troops in Iraq and Afghanistan from improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

Which is what this explosive at the Marathon is being described as

is an IED.

Possibly this is about the Sequester in a perverted kind of way!’

Course the press won’t even question anyone about the difference of the appearance of the two men at Benghazi the one that they claim is Ambassador Chris Stevens and is not.

So I guess they would believe that a bag in front of the fence line that affected the people behind the fence line and not the ones in front of the fence line would be the incendiary bomb, because they have their thinking caps on.

Also a friend just mentioned to me that in the comparisons of the pictures of the bag in front of the fence line before and after the explosion one picture has a man hole cover and the other picture does not yet they are supposed to be of the same scene.

So to put it another way

they are lying.

SO if anyone ridicules the public for suspicion of conspiracy they are liars because obviously conspiracies have been occurring for a long time. Why in the world did the clergy not inform us of these contradictions in the bible? Why do they say that the gospels harmonize?

You can learn quite a bit from Walter Veith if interested in learning about the deception most of the world is mired in. I found his you tubes to be of great value and I hope if you want to start getting a real grasp of knowledge you might start there. There are many other sites with his works besides the following but this set of you tubes ought to help quite a bit.

He is prolific, entertaining, honest, and interesting:

Seven Mountains of Revelation


Revelation 17:9

9And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

=====================

Here is another riddle in Revelation and I want to attempt to solve this problemo.

First of all, a woman is a church.

OBVIOUSLY, Rev. 17 is describing a false church.

The verse also says that the heads are seven mountains:

It is obvious—> the hills of Rome.

Seven hills of Rome

List of cities claimed to be built on seven hills

Thats a lot of cities!

To take this a step further

I think it is what this church stands upon spiritually

that are the seven mountains!


Seven Sacraments of the Roman Catholic  Church

Seven Deadly Sins which the above sacraments help to alleviate.

Sounds like the RCC ITself!

It’s a business, you see!

Talk about HYPOCRISY!

I’m sure I will be very unpopular for what is the obvious meaning of the above verse, but that’s life! I love the catholic friends I have known in my life, and always will, but it is what it is. and it is not my fault. What else could the above verse mean? The history of that church system proves itself. What else do you need?

Roman Catholicism is slavery!


They give a false remedy to sin

and lie to it’s own people

and they profit from it.


That is EVIL!

Indulgences, Tourism to every shrine made for every false sighting or revelation from Mary, Icons, Relics, Idols, books, and EUCHARIST WAFERS, and last, but not least,

the The Shroud of Turin!

More than likely involved in illegal banking practices! The Press! UNIONS! Education! Government!

(A self -fulfilling blob)

I think that is why it is referred to as THE BEAST!

The Mysterious Death of Pope John Paul I [A Treatise]

Isn’t that why one Pope got bumped off? He had the audacity to want to clean up the Vatican’s banking problems. He was known as the smiling Pope! He lasted a whole 30 days! He is the 5th Pope (#263) since the signing of the The Lateran Concordant!

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

In The Garden of Gethsemane


Part one: The Prayers in the Garden

Matthew 26:36-46

36Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.37And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.38Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

Mark 14:32-34

32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.33And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;34And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.

Both Matthew and Mark say essentially the same thing!

Luke 22:35-40

35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

The reason for the contradiction is he has to lay the guilt of the arrest of Jesus Christ on Jesus Christ himself : for sedition

Jesus Christ did not tell his disciples to buy a sword!

And Luke was not a disciple of Jesus Christ and was not present in the garden to know what Jesus said and has come up with this story out of thin air!

37For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned (weighed) among the transgressors:

for the things concerning me have an end.

38And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords.

And he said unto them,

It is enough.

This is a parady of the last words Jesus said before he died when He said:

It is finished.

By the way, the things concerning Jesus of Nazareth do not have an end!

It is only wishful thinking outloud from Luke the follower of Saul/Paul and their “way”  which looks more and more like they are against the truth and they are the ones that weigh us.

The apostles of the false Christ from the Land of Synopsia

use their swords to slice and dice men, 

Jesus of Nazareth and his chosen apostles!

They are antithetical in their three gospels

and other books in the New Testament about

Jesus Christ in the gospel of John!

39And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.40And when he was at the place, he said unto them,

Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Just out of nowhere Jesus says: Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Again, making Jesus sound really weird!

================

Prayer Number One

================

Matthew 26:39-41

39And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.40And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?41Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Mark 14:35-38

35And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.36And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.37And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?38Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

Luke 22:41-46

41And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,42Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.43And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.44And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.45And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

It is hard to enter into temptation when asleep and besides they were not asleep as the gospel of John tells.

Why in the world would they be sleeping in a garden in Gethsamane with their two swords that they armed themselves with before entering the garden anyway

(as Luke says earlier).

This is so ridiculous and fakey!

Luke says an angel appeared unto him from heaven to strengthen Jesus, but the other two synoptic gospels (Matthew and Mark) do NOT mention an angel. 

As I said a while ago, Luke was not there, so the angel comes from his own imagination!

==================

Prayer Number Two

==================

Matthew 26:42-43

42He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.43And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

Mark 14:39-40

39And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.40And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.

Both Matthew and Mark say that Jesus went back a second time to pray for the cup to pass away from him! But in the gospel of John when Jesus was in Jerusalem for the Jewish Feast and he says:

John 12:27

27Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

Jesus was not trying to escape the reason he came!

He is telling us in John 12:27 that others will say that he asks to be saved from this hour are not witnesses! All three synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) are agreed in this representation and have obviously misplaced this quote to another event and placed it in the garden and it has something to do with the Covenant with Many made in their rendition of the “Last Supper.” John does not include the Covenant with Many made in the Last Supper about drinking the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of God has come.

Must be that the mysterious “Q” source told them to say it.

The Synoptic “Q Source”

I don’t believe the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) of what happened in the garden, because Jesus said that was why he came to this hour was to glorify the name of God. Which he did at the feast in Jerusalem:

John 12:28

28Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

==================

Prayer Number Three

==================

Matthew 26:44-46

44And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words 45Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

Mark 14:41-42

41And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.42Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

Both Matthew and Mark say that Jesus tells his disciples to sleep on and then tells them to rise.  They should have asked him “what do you want us to do? Sleep or rise?”

They make Jesus sound skitszoid!

Luke has no more to say about when Jesus prayed in the garden. Matthew says Jesus prayed a second time and a third time for the cup to pass from him. Mark only says he prayed a second time and a third time all the while the disciples were asleep. Does that include Mark? If he was asleep, how would he know? Luke doesn’t mention a second and a third prayer time. And to top it off……they were not there!

All verses are pretty similar but in Matthew Jesus fell on his face, and in Mark Jesus fell on the ground and in Luke Jesus kneels down to pray. Luke, who adds an angel, agony, and great drops of  sweat. Of course, they are all asleep so how would he know of the angel and drops of blood-like sweat and the agony. If Jesus was doing this would not that wake up the disciples, but they were asleep. I imagine if there were an angel visibly there they would be wide awake, but they were asleep.

Does not make sense! 

All three of the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke say that Jesus is praying for the cup to be taken from him, but in the gospel of John this does not happen at all, in fact, Jesus had already prayed (chapter 17 Gospel of John) at the site of the Last Supper. We know Luke was not there, Mark was not there, and Matthew was not there since they missed out on the dialogue at the Last Supper and the prayer.

Jesus was not asking for the cup to be taken from him in the prayer at the Last Supper. John mentions no prayer at the garden but, of course, John and Peter and whoever was in the garden were supposed to be sleeping. Jesus knew what was going to happen. He is the spirit of prophecy as he says in Revelation.

Why do these other three gospels add this blarney when they were not there at the garden or the supper?

I like Shakespeare, but this is ridiculous.

================================

Part Two: The Kiss and the Arrest

=============================

Matthew 26:47-48

47And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came,

and with him a great multitude with swords and staves,

from the chief priests and elders of the people

.48Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.49And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.

Sounds like Judas was Roman!

Mark 14:43-44

43And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.44And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.45And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.

How would Mark know what Judas said? Mark says that Judas says to lead him away safely and Matthew says: hold him fast after Judas kisses Jesus!

Matthew says Judas says Hail Master and Mark says Judas says Master, master.

Luke 22:47-48

47And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

That is what Matthew, Mark and Luke seem to be saying is that Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss! Jesus already knew Judas was going to betray him. He said it a bunch at dinner and in the gospel of Matthew 3 times before that. It wasn’t as if Jesus did not know that Judas was going to betray him! This kiss business is so contrived! Jesus knew who would betray him way before the betrayer knew. He also knew if he would kiss him or not and Jesus never prophecies a kiss from the betrayer.  HMMMMMM!

Why not?

I guess the authors of Matthew, Mark and Luke forgot to do that!

THE “Q” SOURCE FORGOT TO TELL MATTHEW, MARK AND LUKE.

Please read my post that I have linked:

An Holy Kiss

They betray themselves with their sign: an holy kiss!

Wasn’t it the Synoptic gospels

that said no sign would be given?

Well let’s check:

Matthew 16:3
And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Matthew 16:4
A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Mark 8:12
And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.

Luke 2:12
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Luke 2:34
And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;

Luke 11:29
And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

Luke 11:30
For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

So was the sign of the kiss from Judas in the Garden

the same sign as the sign of the prophet Jonas?

Was the sign of the prophet Jonas the sign of

the baby Jesus in swaddling clothes in a manger?

The Synoptic Gospels are a mess!

=========================

Part Three:  One of Them That Smote the Ear

=======================

Matthew 26:50-51

50And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.51And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear.

Mark 14:46-47

46And they laid their hands on him, and took him.47And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

Luke 22:49-51

49When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?50And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.51And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

Luke set this up earlier in his gospel when he said that Jesus told his disciples to buy a sword, so I’m surprised he doesn’t say who it is that smote the ear! But he does say that they asked whether they shall smite with the sword.

This is so unreal!

All three synoptic gospels say it was one of them that smote the ear, so I guess they don’t know which one of them it is!

Doesn’t sound like they are in the know!

Only the gospel of Luke says that Jesus healed the ear.

Luke wasn’t there!

He doesn’t know who smote the ear, but he knows Jesus healed the ear yet no one else notices Jesus healing the ear.

Perhaps Luke or Paul is Malchus?

In depictions of Paul there is always one ear missing or a covering of one ear. ( At least that is what I have noticed IN MY STUDIES AND EXPLORATION.)

Sounds an awful lot like Jackie Kennedy’s amnesia of leaping to the trunk of the car, but knowing why she did. To get brain parts when in actuality it looks an awful lot like a hard tube rolling, Maybe caps from a weapon? Not to mention failing to tell about the puppet she received over the fence line at the airport 1/2 hour before the assassination of JFK, but musing as to why someone would give her red roses as she arrived in Dallas. What is so odd about receiving red roses? Jackie Kennedy had lots of selective memories!   Back to the Gospel of Matthew:

Matthew 26:52-54

52Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.53Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?54But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Legion is a roman military term!

Only the three synoptic gospels speak about legion and legions, but mostly in reference to demons! Here is a post about Legions and demons:

Chief Priests and the Legion – Revised

Part Four:  Disciples Forsook Him


Matthew 26:55-56

55In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

Of course thats what they were doing, and Jesus knew it! Why did Jesus ask when he already knew that they came out as against a thief with swords and staves to take him?

Again, the synoptic gospels have made nonsense of the truth and betray themselves!

Mark 14:48-52

48And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?49I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.50And they all forsook him, and fled.

51And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:52And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

This is a very strange addition to the story! I really don’t understand the meaning of it,

but I am sure the intent to deceive is written all over it!

Kind of makes me think of the Shroud of Turin!

Luke 22:52-53

52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Part Five:  Peter Follows

Matthew 26:57-58

57And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.58But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest’s palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

Mark 14:53-54

53And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.54And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

Luke 22:54

54Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off.

Looks like not all of the disciples fled or forsook Jesus as Matthew and Mark suggest in the section above! Matthew says Peter followed to see the end which is kind of suggesting that Peter was looking forward to this end. Luke seems to suggest that because of the “buying a sword tale” that the true Jesus Christ was the wolf that scatters the sheep only to cover up who the real wolf is!

This post tells who are the wolves in sheep’s clothing:

Chief Priests and the Legion – Revised

==============================


Part Six:  According to the Gospel of John


John 18:1-12

1When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.2And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.3Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.4Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?5They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.6As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.7Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.8Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:9That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.10Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.11Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath:

the cup

which my Father hath given me,

shall I not drink it?

12Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,

Peter was the ONE OF THEM that smote the ear!

The man that had his ear whacked was Malchus!

images

NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily

Jesus went forth to the garden to meet the band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, and also Judas.

He did not try to escape! He deliberately met the multitude!

He asked that his disciples be allowed to go their way!

They did not forsake him!

He did what He had purposed to do!

The Crucifixion

John 19:29-30

29Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar:

and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished:

and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

———————————————————-

The Covenant in Blood

I wonder why the three Synoptic Gospel have a a covenant for the many at the Last Supper,

but not in the Gospel of John.

Seems to me that the Gospel of John would include this covenant made with the many?

Matthew 26:26-28

26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Mark 14:22-25

22And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.23And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.24And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.25Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

Luke 22:20

20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

It is written as “covenant” instead of “testament” in the NIV and many other versions of the bible.

Definition of TESTAMENT

1
a archaic : a covenant between God and the human raceb capitalized : either of two main divisions of the Bible
2
a : a tangible proof or tributeb : an expression of conviction : creed
3
a : an act by which a person determines the disposition of his or her property after deathb : will
— tes·ta·men·ta·ry adjective
=========================================================

Daniel 9:27
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

So what is Paul saying below?

I have a hard time with Paul and understanding where he is coming from because he seems most of the time to digress/swerve often!

Galatians 3:15-17
15Brethren, I speak after the manner of men;

Though it be but a man’s covenant,

yet if it be confirmed,

no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.

16Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

17

And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

Daniel 9:27 (New International Version)

27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ [a] In the middle of the ‘seven’ [b] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.

Confirmation of the Covenant: Who is “He”?
