    • Beloved, Blind I May Shortly Become I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early. Hosea 5:15 Yet Jesus Remains My Light For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? Romans 11:15 And I'll See Him For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me. Job 19:25-27 Coming For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 ~ Thank You For Your Thoughful Reply
      Beloved, I Love You The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
      The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
      The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 6:24-27 Joe
    • It has been spoken of, hinted at, but to the depth of discernment this: Matt 6:24
      24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
      KJV
      The source of the system is Babylon and God clearly (hates) the system! So much so~ you do not see it in the continuation of eternity: Isa 55:1
      55 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
      KJV
      the only value that can be placed within mammon is to use it within obedience to God's Word...
      Love Steven
    • So, reader, friend... "divine abundance" is FOR YOU, the Child of God., as your Heavenly DADDY, your "Abba" owns it all and you are a heavenly family member:) It is a fact that you can't out give God, and it is a fact that "they who give to the poor lendeth to the LORD, and He will REPAY"..... and its a fact that when you give something up for the LORD,  you get something back that is "more".... as this is a spiritual principal that works as a truth in the "Kingdom of God" that you exit within. God is a GIVER and His nature is to provide and to sustain and to restore......So, we give knowing we will receive, but the reason we give is because we serve Him and love our neighbor as ourself.....and as long as we keep our heart's right while knowing "how it works", that giving is a SEED that produces a return........Then we stay in balance and prosperous and honest. See, it all comes down to motive.....everything is MOTIVE, and God who sees the heart knows your motive, so, as long as you keep your motive pure in your giving, then divine abundance will be a literal fact of your earthly existence. There is a reason that there are "streets of Gold" in HEAVEN- New Jerusalem .....as God understands wealth and has no issue with you having all your needs met and much more then that, however, we are to take up our Cross and deny ourselves a greedy heart and a lazy lifestyle, and our "Cross" is to always keep God on the Throne of our Hearts and in this we live a Christian life that accepts Jesus as Lord and God as '"First Place" in our existence.   And from THIS MOTIVE, comes divine abundance, always, as wealth follows obedience and health follows service and giving. You may not know this, but giving to the poor creates a harvest of health for you......and that is a fact......so, you can give out of a loving heart to the needy knowing they need it, while also understanding that God protects your health because you have a heart that lives to give. God is not upset if you understand that giving gets a return......Its FINE for you to understand the principle of "sowing and reaping".. of.. "seed time and harvest"".....but we have to do all our giving out of LOVE and Devotion to God and Christ. = motive, motive, motive ! So, make your life a life that "LIVES TO GIVE"......as this does release God to do the same for  you, and thats a good thing.:)   God bless,   <B><
    • Characteristic 2. So my previous article was to present my evidence for the rise of the Little horn power of Daniel 7 from pagan Rome. This presentation is to show evidence from a variety of historical sources affirming that the little horn not only rose from pagan Rome, but also revealing the identity of the ten horns among whom it grew, and thus confirming its Roman roots. The little horn arises among the ten horns. The ten horns are the divisions of western Europe, so the little horn must arise in western Europe (Daniel 7:8). Notice that these first two characteristics restrict the geographical location of the little horn to western Europe. That the little horn was to rise up among ten future kings was understood by the early church fathers. They saw and understood that what Paul meant when he said…. 2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. ….Was the Roman power. They understood that when the Roman power was taken out of the way, the antichrist would appear among the ten kings, and would subdue 3 of them. First, let us read what the well known Catholic historian Cardinal Manning had to say:
      “Now the abandonment of Rome was the liberation of the pontiffs. Whatsoever claims to obedience the emperors may have made, and whatsoever compliance the Pontiff may have yielded, the whole previous relation, anomalous, and annulled again and again by the vices and outrages of the emperors, was finally dissolved by a higher power. The providence of God permitted a succession of irruptions, Gothic, Lombard, and Hungarian, to desolate Italy, and to efface from it every remnant of the empire The pontiffs found themselves alone, the sole fountains of order, peace, law, and safety. And from the hour of this providential liberation, when, by a divine intervention, the chains fell off from the hands of the successor of St. Peter, as once before from his own, no sovereign has ever reigned in Rome except the Vicar of Jesus Christ.”
      (Henry Edward Manning, The Temporal Power of The Vicar of Jesus Christ, Preface, pp. xxviii, xxix. London: Burns and Lambert, 1862). According to Manning, there was a restraint that inhibited the Bishops of Rome from exercising full authority as the temporal and spiritual leaders they believed was their destiny. That restraint was the pagan Roman power. Note also one very salient fact. Paul, in his letter to the Thessalonians, did not name the actual power, but did remind his readers that he had previously told them who it was when he ministered to them in person. So why did he not reveal it in writing? There can be only one answer to that. He was aware that if his letter was to find its way into Roman hands, it would be immediate evidence as sedition and treason. Inviting an early retirement from his evangelical profession clearly was not in Paul's plans. If the 'restrainer' was the Holy Spirit or any other heavenly entity, Paul would surely have mentioned it without fear or favor.
      Now let us see what some of the early church fathers believed would take place soon according to their understanding of the prophecies. In believing as they did, it was obvious they were in full agreement with Paul on this subject. It is a great pity that modern theologians digress from not only the clear teachings of Paul, but ignore the evidence of history, and have thus gone off on many tangents and diversions and entered into guessing games which miss the mark. Tertullian 160-240AD
      “‘For the mystery of iniquity doth already work; only he who now hinders must hinder, until he be taken out of the way.’ What obstacle is there but the Roman state, the falling away of which, by being scattered into ten kingdoms, shall introduce Antichrist upon (its own ruins)? ‘And then shall be revealed the wicked one.”
      “On the Resurrection of the Flesh,” chapter 24; Ante-Nicene Fathers, vol. III, p. 563 “The very end of all things threatening dreadful woes is only retarded by the continued existence of the Roman Empire.”
      (“Apology,” chapter 32; Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. III, p. 43). Lactantius (early fourth century): “The subject itself declares that the fall and ruin of the world will shortly take place; except that while the city of Rome remains, it appears that nothing of this kind is to be feared. But when that capital of the world shall have fallen, and shall have begun to be a street, which the Sibyls say shall come to pass, who can doubt that the end has now arrived to the affairs of men and the whole world? It is that city, that only, which still sustains all things.”
      (“The Divine Institutes,” book 7, chapter 25; Ante-Nicene Fathers, vol. VII, p. 220). Cyril of Jerusalem (318-386 A. D.): “But this aforesaid Antichrist is to come when the times of the Roman Empire shall have been fulfilled, and the end of the world is drawing near. There shall rise up together ten kings of the Romans, reigning in different parts perhaps, but all about the same time; and after those an eleventh, the Antichrist, who by his magical craft shall seize upon the Roman power; and of the kings who reigned before him, ‘three he shall humble,’ and the remaining seven he shall keep in subjection to himself.”
      (Catechetical Lectures,” section 15, on II Thessalonians 2:4; Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, vol. VII, p. 108 Ambrose (died in 398): “After the falling or decay of the Roman Empire, Antichrist shall appear.”
      (Quoted in, Bishop Thomas Newton, Dissertations on the Prophecies, p. 463) Chrysostom (died in 407): “When the Roman Empire is taken out of the way, then he [the Antichrist] shall come. And naturally. For as long as the fear of this empire lasts, no one will willingly exalt himself, but when that is dissolved, he will attack the anarchy, and endeavor to seize upon the government both of man and of God.”
      “Homily IV on 2 Thessalonians 2:6-9,” Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, vol. XIII, p. 389 So after the restraint of Rome was removed, first ten kings arose from within, and the empire was divided between them. From the historian Barnes we read the following very interesting remark regarding other historians. “Even the Romanists themselves admit that the Roman Empire was, by means of the incursions of the northern nations, dismembered into ten kingdoms (Calmet on Revelation 13:1; and he refers likewise to Berangaud, Bossuet, and DuPin. See Newton, p. 209); and Machiavelli (‘History of Florence,’ 1.i) with no design of furnishing an illustration of this prophecy, and probably with no recollection of it, has mentioned these names: 1. The Ostrogoths in Moesia; 2. The Visigoths in Pannonia; 3. The Sueves and Alans in Gascoign and Spain; 4. The Vandals in Africa; 5. The Franks in France; 6. The Burgundians in Burgundy; 7. The Heruli and Turingi in Italy; 8. The Saxons and Angles in Britain; 9. The Huns in Hungary; 10. The Lombards at first upon the Danube, afterwards in Italy.”
      (Albert Barnes, Notes on the Book of Daniel, p. 322.) “Antichrist, then (as the Fathers delight to call him), or the little horn, is to be sought among the ten kingdoms of the western Roman Empire. I say of the western Roman Empire, because that was properly the body of the fourth beast; Greece, and the countries which lay eastward of Italy belonged to the third beast; for the former beasts were still subsisting, though their dominion was taken away.
      ‘As concerning the rest of the beasts,’ saith Daniel, ‘they had their dominion taken away; yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.’ Daniel 7:12.
      ‘And therefore,’ as Sir Isaac Newton rightly infers, ‘all four beasts are still alive, though the dominion of the three first be taken away. The nations of Chaldea and Assyria are still the first beast. Those of Media and Persia are still the second beast. Those of Macedon, Greece and Thrace, Asia Minor, Syria, and Egypt, are still the third. And those of Europe, on this side of Greece, are still the fourth. Seeing therefore the body of the third beast is confined to the nations on this side the river Euphrates, and the body of the fourth beast is confined to the nations on this side of Greece; we are to look for all the four heads of the third beast among the nations on this side the river Euphrates; and for all the eleven horns of the fourth beast, among the nations on this side of Greece.”
      (Thomas Newton, Dissertations on the Prophecies, pp. 239, 240). The above quote is also very pertinent to Revelation 13 and the beast that arises from the sea having all the composite parts of the beasts of Daniel. All four beasts are still alive in composite form of the Revelation beast, the antichrist. Notice also the steady progression in a westerly direction of each power. First Babylon, then Media/Persia, then Greece, then Rome and Europe. In Revelation 13 the beast of the sea being composite of all these, is followed by a new beast that rises from out of the earth. There are many who believe this power that rises chronologically after the European composite, is that power which lies further westward, namely America. But that subject is for another day.

      I believe in God, and that there are pieces of him, called love and goodness, in everyone. I also believe in prayer, not the memorized type mumbled in church but the spontaneous kind spoken, ironically, in the last breath of the day, when the lamp has been dimmed and the bedspread drawn down, and it's just you and those pieces of God in you, alone.... I suspect that when a man grows too big to kneel, then he is destined to fall.
