    Servant to One's Sorrow

    An Engineer reads this. He is used to having an instruction manual, and following step by step what to do. That is not exactly wrong. The Bible and the spiritual is complicated. Is someone figuring it out with their own mind or letting go and letting the spirit of God flow? Someone with a strict literalist interpretation may not be wrong. Given he is working on forcing that strict and literal interpretation he is wrong. Given the Spirit of God is flowing, people may be working in the Spirit and that strict interpretation without trying. There may be things that the strict literalist does not see or understand. What does a Man of God look like, for example? Someone from a Dry Country in Tennessee may believe that a Man of God does not drink and that drinking is evil. The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.' But wisdom is proved right by her deeds." (Matthew 11:19) The strict literalist may be in a box. He has a perspective. That perspective is false. He cannot see outside the box? For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' (Luke 7:33) Most of what was is in the content in Rocksteady blog in my signature was created with a drink in my hand and the Spirit of God. When someone drinks, what is in their heart comes out. Someone with sin or hatred of women drinks and he may be in sin or beat a woman. Someone with nothing but the spirit of God drinks and the Spirit of God comes out. Do I have to drink to write for God? Not necessarily. I like to. I flow with the Spirit of God. God loves you and nothing else matters. Man lets go. Say "I don't know." I don't know. God knows. https://www.christianforums.com/blogs/blog/rocksteady.3593/

    Servant to One's Sorrow

    Fear of God is a good thing. Fear of God takes away your fear of man. God is love. God's love is fatherly. You are doing the right things? What do you have to fear?

    Servant to One's Sorrow

    The Lord is a shepherd. (Psalms 23) God has a Staff leading to Good things and Joy. God has a Rod of Misery. These two forces may be said to shepherd someone. Someone who is a servant of God and following God may have been a "Servant to One's Sorrow or Misery," that is, to find God in a big way, and to really be shepherded by God, someone may of had to hit the bottom, or have gone through "The Eye of the Needle," where he had nothing else but God. A Farmer on the American Frontier at various point in time, may have become a Servant to His Sorrow. A farmer who was lazy, or maybe who had a bad harvest, may have been miserable all winter. He may have been starving and just barely surviving. Maybe he lost some neighbors or family. In the Spring, he may be highly motivated to plant and do better so he is not miserable. At the same time, he seeks out God. He prays. He prays for rain. Given he was lazy, he seeks change, and prays for God to change him. He doesn't know what is going to happen come fall and harvest. He works to lean on The Lord. The Farmer on the American frontier may have had two books. He had a Bible and a "Poor Richard's Almanack." All winter, he has time to read these and seek God. He may have found God in a big way. Peter was a Fisherman. Sometimes the fish were not biting? Peter needed money for his daughter? Peter had bills to pay? These things may have motivated Peter to fish more. Peter needs to be successful to get the things he needs and desires. In a way, we may say that Peter was a Servant to his Sorrow. When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, 2and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. 3He told them: "Take nothing for the journey-no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt. 4Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. 5If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them." 6So they set out and went from village to village, proclaiming the good news and healing people everywhere. (Luke 9:1-6) The Twelve Disciples may not have quite been servants to their sorrow at that time in a spiritual sense. They were taught by Jesus. They may have started experiencing cause and effect. Jesus sent them out in twos with no bag, no money, no extra shirt, no staff. They went out to proclaim the Kingdom of God. Where would they find food? Where would they find shelter? They would have to lean on The Lord, and learn to truth him. They would rely on trust and grow in Faith with God. They had knowledge of God. They had instructions and what Jesus was teaching. They worked to apply what they learned. It may not seem pragmatic to travel with no bag, but there was a spiritual pragmatism. There are spiritual rules. They were going to rely on God. Jesus instructed them. They had faith in their teacher. They should be obedient and have faith. They were going on an adventure proclaiming the Kingdom of God, and taking a leap of Faith. God has a will. Man has a will. For man to line up his will with God's will in a big way, he may have had to go through various trials and tribulations. He has learned to joyfully endure his trials, and read what God is doing. (James 1:2-4) He lines his will up with the spirit of God and flows with it. God is his shepherd. Given someone is experiencing God, he may need the following proverbs to be successful. He needs to center himself. Proverbs Miracles happen at the intersection of Faith and Reason. The more Faith someone has, the more God becomes their Reason. Faith is a knowledgeable dependence. A man studies his Bible, and goes through trials. He grows in Faith and in Trust of God. Don't Look Down. Jesus is walking on water. He takes Peter's hand, and Peter is now walking on water. Peter's senses tell him that this should not be happening or he is in shock and awe. He may have some fear or doubt. Peter looks down. Peter sinks. Doubt and Fear kill Faith. Going into the Spiritual and growing in Faith may take some conditioning. You condition your mind and will against doubt or fear. Don't look down. What kind of conditioning or faith did Jonah and Jesus have that they could sleep through a storm and not care while everyone else is panicking? (Jonah 1:5,6)(Matthew 8:23-27) Don't look back. Don't look back is like Lot and his family leaving Sodom. You had a life as an individual and had sin. You are starting a new life in Christ to build God's Kingdom. Don't look back to your old life. Given you picked up the plow and looked back you are not worthy. Don't look back could be like Lot's wife. She may have sensed some heat behind her. She may have heard sounds. She was instructed to not look back. Curiosity killed the cat? Don't look back is an important element of growing in Faith. I youtube searched it one day, and found Duke Dumont - "Won't Look Back". As to what how I break down the video: The Post Modern World is like a Masquerade. What Spirit is someone of? Spirits affect motivation. Sometimes God hides his prophets. Who serves God and who is serving themselves or something else? The video is prophetic. God has good plans for you. (Jeremiah 29:11) God knows you. God created you. God is love. His love is fatherly. Given you end up being able to talk to God, you may end up seeing or hearing spirits and other things. God has a plan and he has good plans for you. If you are not centered on God, being able to see these or hear these things could throw you off. God will not ask you to do more than you are capable of handling. Walk The Line. 1 Kings 13. God's way is a path. There may be liars or deceivers or distractions. Walk the line. Don't trust man. Trust God.

    Chaos and Order and Law and God

    One of the archetypes Dr. Jordon Peterson talks about is Chaos vs Order. In Dr. Peterson's Bible Series he states some interesting things about The Spiritual, but he appears to teach about Chaos and Order from a "Man Seeking Truth Outside of God," and not more from a God-Centric or Spirit Filled point of view. The following are some themes or archetypes as related to Dr. Jordan Peterson's lectures on Chaos and Order and how they work from a God centricity that your average person reading the Bible may have missed as related to Chaos and Order. Various people that have been moved by Dr. Peterson are looking for God, or may be, and Dr. Peterson isn't necissarily an evangelist. Being knowledgeable about Dr. Peterson is a good in to talk about God, and lead people to Jesus Christ. "Biblical Series II: Genesis 1: Chaos & Order" The Unknown: Leaps of Faith The Lord is a shepherd. (Psalms 23) We may say that God has a Staff leading to Good things and Joy. God has a Rod of Misery. These two forces may be said to shepherd someone. These two forces may be said to be God shepherding someone. Someone who is a servant of God and following God may have been a "Servant to One's Sorrow or Misery," that is, to find God in a big way, and to really be shepherded by God, someone may of had to hit the bottom, or have gone through "The Eye of the Needle," where he had nothing else but God. A Farmer on the American Frontier at various point in time, may have become a Servant to His Sorrow. A farmer who was lazy, or maybe who had a bad harvest, may have been miserable all winter. He may have been starving and just barely surviving. Maybe he lost some neighbors or family. In the Spring, he may be highly motivated to plant and do better so he is not miserable. At the same time, he seeks out God. He prays. He prays for rain. Given he was lazy, he seeks change, and prays for God to change him. He doesn't know what is going to happen come fall and harvest. He works to lean on The Lord. The Farmer on the American frontier may have had two books. He had a Bible and a "Poor Richard's Almanack" or something. All winter, he has time to read these and seek God. He may have found God in a big way. The Farmer on the American Frontier may have had a minimum of law needed to function. Law is often associated with order. The Farmer on the American Frontier had a lot of freedom in being free from various legal constraints. He was free to seek and serve God. He willingly choose God and God's ways. People who follow God, tend to be pragmatic. A servant to one's sorrow is more of a pragmatist. Dr. Jordan Peterson is shepherded by Joy and Misery. There are certain things Dr. Peterson likes and find enjoyable. There are certain things that make him miserable. Dr. Jordan Peterson may not have 100% been following God, but Dr. Jordan Peterson would be a pragmatist given he is not an ideologue, and seeking Truth. What has been shepherding Dr. Peterson on a professional level? He seems to have integrity, he appears to not like ideologues, he appears to be unwilling to sacrifice his integrity to ideological forces who demand that he does, and so Dr. Peterson drew a line at laws that force him to do so. These forces represent misery, and what was potentially making Dr. Peterson Miserable or feel bad. Dr. Peterson in drawing a line came into conflict with various ideologues and governments. A servant to one's sorrow, at the basics of it, is someone who is doing what he needs to do to survive. A farmer on the American Frontier doing what he needed to survive may be servant to one's sorrow. He is a pragmatist. Someone like Dr. Jordan Peterson may have been a servant to his sorrow in that he was doing what he felt he had to do to save his professional integrity, and how he feels and perceives himself. Various servants to one's sorrow may have sought and found God in a cause and effect way. Their will ends up aligning with God's will. The Lord is their shepherd. The Twelve Disciples may not have quite been servants to their sorrow at that time. They were being taught by Jesus. They may have started experiencing cause and effect. Jesus sent them out in twos with no bag, no money, no extra shirt, no staff. They went out to proclaim the Kingdom of God. Where would they find food? Where would they find shelter? They would have to lean on The Lord, and learn to truth him. They would rely on trust and grow in Faith with God. They had knowledge of God. They had instructions and what Jesus was teaching. They worked to apply what they learned. It may not seem pragmatic to travel with no bag, but there was a spiritual pragmatism. There are spiritual rules. They were going to rely on God. Jesus instructed them. They had faith in their teacher. They should be obedient and have faith. They were going on an adventure proclaiming the Kingdom of God, and taking a leap of Faith. Peter, Disciple of Jesus, may have been a servant to his sorrow at various point in his life as a fisherman. Sometimes the catch wasn't good. He looked for ways to bring in a better yield. He would like to be successful? Jesus Christ comes along. Jesus says "Follow me." As someone who had been a servant to his sorrow, Peter may not have been aligned with God and accepting of God's spirit at the time. He may have had knowledge of Torah. He may not have been aligned with God. To follow Jesus would take a Leap of Faith. Part of what Jesus did was work to realign the Hebrew people with God. In the song "Dying Time" by Black Label Society, the theme of being a "Servant to One's Sorrow" is displayed. Someone following Jesus may have to die. He dies to the world. He dies to the self. He embraces God. Jesus Christ is The Light and the way. In terms of the video, the various imagery may be someone's vision of what is in "The Spiritual" regardless of if it is right or wrong. We may come back to this later. Law as Order Moses may be said to be a "Law Bringer." God talked directly to Moses. Moses gave Law or God gave law through Moses. Moses bringing law wasn't necessarily just for order, like God is order. The 10 Commandments have a lot to do with lies and deceptions. Why does someone not lie, cheat, or steal? These things create darkness. Christians are children of The Light and not the dark. (Ephesians 5:8) Given someone told a lie, and another person believed a lie, the person who believed the lie may be said to be in The Dark. His perspective of reality may be off. Joe meets Dane for the first time at a business conference. Joe asks Dane what he does for a living. Dane lies about his occupation to be perceived as more than what he is. Given Joe believed that lie, Joe may have developed a false sense of whom Dane was. Given Joe believed that lie, Joe may have been said to be said to be in The Dark about Dane's occupation. Joe would have had a false sense or perspective about something. The Torah contains The Laws of Moses. The Laws of Moses were not 100% all for and because of Order like God is Law and Order 100%. This is a big distinction to make because in Paganism there is a tendency to separate and make gods for x, y, and z. Christianity is not Dualistic where Satan is Chaos and God Order. Christianity is not Zoroastrianism either. In Babylon, a system of law was in place. This system of law may be said to have established an order. Whose order or towards what purpose? In The Book of Kings, there are what are seen as Good Kings that worked to follow God and bad kings. There was an order in place. Who was being given authority? Man? Something else? God? Law doesn't always mean good. We will try to come back to this. Moses lead Israel out of Egypt. Moses took some leaps of faith. He followed God. God is his light and Morning Star. God is leading Moses and Israel. Moses may not 100% know what is going to happen. Moses trusts God. Moses has the people of Israel looking to him for guidance. He is a Judge. People have disputes. Two neighbors do not get along, maybe they have an outstanding grudge or some conflict. They need someone to settle their dispute. Various men took their disputes to Moses to be settled. Moses leading Israel may have found stress and things that made his life difficult. He had a big job. To help him with this job, he appointed judges. Who was a Judge? Someone who was honest and honorable and hated dishonest gain? Lying, cheating, stealing, and idolatry are things that have created darkness and dishonest gain. Manonfire63 meets an Atheist online, and they talk about The Bible. Why is the Atheist an Atheist? Various people from different backgrounds may have been atheists for various reasons. Why is this particular Atheist an Atheist at this time, and does he have an ideology and why? Manonfire63 questions the Atheist. He finds out the Atheist is a Secular Humanist. Humanism is an ideology rooted in Christianity or something that came from Christian Theologians. It was secularized, and a lot of other ideologies have been connected to it or associate with it. Manonfire63, keeps questioning said Secular Humanist Atheist. Manonfire63, mentions Honor, male honor and tradition, and explains that is a good and necissary thing. (Secular Humanism doesn't believe in that 1950's stuff. Secular Humanists tend to believe that honor is a thing of the past and good riddance.) Manonfire63 eventually exposes that the Secular Humanist Atheist has been a pawn of Satanists and/or is acutally a Satanist. Someone with no honor or integrity, not believing in honor or integrity. A Judge is your honor or the honorable. Honor is necissary for Justice. The Bible is The Word of God. God doesn't lie. The Atheist's Word is no good. He is a liar or someone who spreads deceptions. His subjective opinion of God and the Bible may have created blindness. He is a false teacher given he has been working to influence others. During the times of Moses, Law was given. Some people have been critics of Mosiac Law, or they don't understad it, and the harshness of it being of The World. In term of Heirarchies of Authority, Israel in the wildreness would have been outside of The World of Lies, living intimately with God experiencing the Spiritual. (Mana from heaven.) Seeing and experiencing miracles. God wanted them to be a Holy People. Does law bring order? Law does bring order. The purpose of the Laws of Moses is Holiness. Short Video: "God's Holiness." Law was given while the Hebrews were in the Wilderness. They were a Holy people. A society outside of other hierarchies of authority. God was their King. Given they did not worship other gods, and kept The Law, and were obedient to God, they would have been perfect and blessed. Authority and Law In the Book of Judges, Israel is different from other nations. Other nations had Kings. Israel had no Kings. God was their King. Given someone were to point out various things in The Laws of Moses they question, many of those things were associated with Paganism and worship of other gods, much of which has been secularized in someway today? Given someone was engaged in some sort of sin, was it because of a weakness of character, or because they started worshiping a pagan false god? God gave Moses Laws. These Laws are associated with with Holiness and being close to God. The Law and worship of God to Israel was a form of Patriotism. God Almighty is God of Israel, Isaac, and Jacob, God of their ancestors, God of Moses. Worshiping something else would make someone less of an Israelite? In following directions, the Hebrew people would be giving authority to God, and accepting God's Spirit. Identity is associated with The Soul. How does someone identify themselves? As a child of God or something else? The Laws of Moses establish a system of law and order. Given the Hebrews followed directions, they were blessed. In the New Testament, Jesus establishes The Body of Christ. What is The Body of Christ? Some are the feet, some the hands, some the eyes, some the nose, some the mouth. Some are Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, and Evangelists. Everyone has a function in The Body. We are a society of believers. An organic society. Israel in the Wilderness, or later in the Book of Judges, was a Society of Believers. Sin and idolatry is like a cancer or possibly a festering wound. If your left hand causes you to sin, cut it off. Given your eye causes you to sin, pull it out. This is similar in theme to The Laws of Moses. Jesus Christ is The Lord. He couldn't contradict other Prophets. The Bible is The Word of God, Word connotes honor and integrity. Israel didn't follow direction 100% in the Promised Land. Various forms of idolatry and sin came into their Body. Did they cut it off, or allow it to grow or fester? Whose authority were they under? In the Book of Judges, neighboring peoples would oppress the people of Israel during times of idolatry. People would cry out to God for help. God would send them a Judge. Did the people repent? Chaos and Order A man is a freshmen in High School, and it is August. He signed up to play High School football. He is new to football. He doesn't know the rules very well, or how the game works. The first few weeks may seem choatic. On the football field, things are moving fast, and he doesn't know how to react. The coaches work to breakdown various aspects of the game in drills. As the freshmen drills, he develops muscle memories. He develops mental toughness. In a scrimage, after several weeks, after the ball is snaped, there may be some chaos as he doesn't quite know what to expect. Due to various drills and a lot of practice, he becomes good at reacting. He lives in the moment. On a battlefield, there may be chaos as in the unexpected. A lot of horrible things may happen. Soldiers prepping themselves for war often drill a variety of scenarios. They develop mental toughness. Given a mortar round is fired at them, they may know how to react by instinct because they drilled something. Men who have drilled, and then experienced war, may not find it as chaotic. A order of things may develop over time, or they get used to loud noises and unpleasant things and experiences that may make others fearful or even cry. Chaos, in man's perspective, is a variety of unknown factors. Faith is a knowledgeable dependence. Jonah, at the time of Jonah 1:5-6 was a called Prophet. Jonah had grown in faith and knew something about Faith and God. Everyone else was fearful and afraid. Jonah was sleeping at the bottom of the ship. Jonah had been conditioned? Jonah had learned to trust God? A Soldier used to war may be conditioned towards dealing or experiencing the chaos of war. Having Faith in God and knowledge of God is on another level. Jesus shows a similar character in the New testament. Someone growing in Faith experienced trials experienced conditioning. He has Trust in God. Faith is a knowledgeable dependence. Order and Chaos are not necessarily the best ways to take about God. There is a lot more to it. Chaos and Order: Summing It Up Dr. Peterson talks about Hierarchies of Authority. A Hierarchy of Authority may be a CEO, District Manager, Manager - Commander and Chief, General, Colonel, Captain - Pope, Bishop, Priest. These are all Hierarchies of Authority. Whose will or authority be done? Man's will? Something else's will? God's will? In general, chaos, or what has been perceived as chaos, occurs due to man's disobedience.....and he was filthy, and rejected good things and righteousness. In seeking God, trying to view him or talking about him in terms of Chaos and Order may not be quite right. It is an interesting topic to discuss, but it may not be the best way to go about revealing God. Christians are Children of the Light and not the darkness. (Ephesians 5:8) Jesus Christ is The Light of the World. Dr. Jordan Peterson brings up a lot of interesting topics that may be helpful in leading people to knowledge of God.

    Kingdom of God: Infinity War

    What does it mean that someone's soul rejoices? A feminist may watch MSNBC and Rachel Maddow. It makes her feel good. As a feminist, she has a goal. The ideology of feminism has a goal. When she believes that feminism is doing well and growing and they are progressing and moving on, her soul rejoices? She feels good? Feminism is a stumbling block. We could replace feminism with a number of other ideologies in the above example. They are all wrong. They are false, and most of them were created in a Modernist Context. Modernism is a Philosophy that began roughly around the French Revolution and ended with the Fall of the Berlin Wall. A part of Modernism became man working to solve the world's problems outside of God. The belief in man's triumph without religion. Modernism is Luciferian. Various ideologies that stem from it are Luciferian. People should be working to build The Kingdom of God, and leading men and women into righteousness and accepting God's Spirit. Christianity is transformational. Someone growing in Faith will experience changes in how they view or see The World. Cause and effect.

    Kingdom of God: Infinity War

    For today, I am Skrek. Why Skrek? The Spiritual or Principalities have layers. It has layers like the atmosphere. Some of these layers have been like God's Clothes. (The Emperors New Clothes?) We shouldn't expose the Father's nakedness? (Genesis 9) Someone pulling back the layers for you, so you can see, may be an Ogre. Shrek beats up Thanos. Shrek takes the Infinity Gauntlet like a warrior from the Iliad taking the armor of a Hero he vanquished as a trophy. Skrek now has The Soul Stone. What exactly is The Soul Stone and what does it do? Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' (Matthew 22:37) Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.(Deuteronomy 6:5) Christians are to love The Lord their God with their Heart and Soul. Before Christ, this may have come partially in the form of Nationalism. Jacob's name was changed to Israel. God Almighty is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Isaac was a child of promise. God promised Abraham sons. Isaac is special. David defending Israel against Goliath was an act of National pride and patriotism. It was an act of love and faith with God. Loving God with your heart and soul, in terms of the Old Testament, may have come in the form of identity, like identity politics, how someone identifies and sees themselves. It was tied to a form of Nationalism. In Ezekiel 23, Israel and Judah are like two sisters God married. They prostituted themselves with foreign gods and foreign nations. That is multiculturalism. Someone with a heart for God is Zealous like David was. Zealous in defending his brothers and his God. Love of money is the root of all evil, and those looking to make money with foreigners or looking for foreign titles or foreign acceptance would be a multiculturalist and prone to sin and idolatry to fit in? Jesus is a Bridegroom looking for a Bride. Men are to love their wives as God loved the Church. The Church is said to be a Bride for Christ. Identity has a lot to do with the make up of the soul. Where is someone's heart and soul? Someone should identify themselves as a Child of God. They should work to build The Kingdom of God. That is where their soul should be. The Counter Culture is Satanic and based on Marxism and Crowley. It works to splinter and divide man, divide nations, divide the Church. Christians should reject it zealously. Men who tend to love God and love God's law tend to be traditional people and Nationalists. In Britain, for example, a lot of the coronation of the King or Queen and the symbolism is based on Prophet Samuel and the Anointing of King Saul like the King of Britain is God's Anointed. The Queen is God's Anointed and the head of the State Church, the Anglican Church? Love of God for many British would look like Traditional Nationalism? Multiculturalism would be like drinking a harlots wine? (Ezekiel 23)(Revelations 17) The head of man is Christ, the head of woman is her husband. (1 Corinthians 11:3) Christ is to man as man is to woman. (1 Corinthians 11:3) The head of man is Christ. The head of woman is her husband. God is said to have married Israel or Jerusalem in the Old Testament. The Greater Church is a bride for Christ. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her (Ephesians 5:25) There is a 16 year old girl. She starts dating. She has a boyfriend. This is her first boyfriend. She loves him. They end up in sin together. She molds and changes for him. She sees the two of them as a couple. She works to build an identity as a couple. Her identity is shaped by the relationship. As she is shaping their identity together, and because they were in sin, they became "one flesh," she has a Soul Tie. Their souls are tied together. He dumps her after a 9 months. He didn't really take the relationship that seriously, and may be headed for an extended adolescence. The US Government says he is not a man till age 26 for reasons to do with Healthcare, and he may not understand responsibility and manhood and know who he is due to a variety of factors till around that time anyway. He wasn't ready for that type of commitment. The 16 year old girl is now a hurt woman. She is damaged. She has to build an identity outside of that relationship. She hates her ex. She ends up a feminist. She wants a career, and she hates men. Her identity around feminism starts to form. That is what she is loving with her soul and her heart. In college she meets has a new boyfriend. He doesn't like all that feminist stuff. She likes him. Her plan is to be married by 25. Her biological clock is ticking, and he came along at the right time. She drops a lot of the feminist identity to forge a new identity with that relationship. Kingdom of God The Avengers movie came out recently. Someone has The Soul Stone. Given someone had the Soul Stone, he could make Captain American a Captain Russia. Captain America's Identity and what he loves and fights for is tied to his patriotism and love of country, what he loves with his soul. It is tied to the pre-Counter Culture value system of what makes a man. With the Soul Stone, someone could make Captain America Captain Russia. His identity and what he loves is changed. How Captain America perceives himself is changed. When David defended God and Israel against Goliath, he Loved God and Israel with his Heart and Soul. David is a Patriot. God in the Bible is God of Israel, Isaac, and Jacob, God of David's Ancestors who lead his people out of Egypt and slavery. God gave David victory over the lions and bears that would try to steal David's lambs away as he was shepherding. Surely that Philistine stood no chance? As Christians we are Children of God. Christianity is transformational. Someone accepts in the Spirit of God, and is baptized. They become part of The Body of Christ. The Family of believers. They become a Child of God. That means something. As a Christian, they are important, and play a role in the Body. They should love God with their Heart and Soul. My Father has a House. Song: "In my Father's House." All are welcome. We are neither Jew nor Gentile. God will take a servant who fears him from any Nation. God likes Glory. Would you like to work to bring God Glory or work for God's Glory?

    What is the "Secret Rapture"

    I am not 100% sure of all that is going to happen. God has not given it to me to speak in the affirmative about certain things in the future, at this time. I have been aware of The Prophecy of The Popes. Pope Benedict, the German Pope, was the last one. Then a Peter The Roman Shepherding his Flock. Then a Dread Judge. Prior to a Dread Judge, there would be a John the Baptist like person in that he paves the way? There is cause and effect with the Spiritual. Faith is evidence of things unseen. (Hebrews 11:1) One day around fall 2016, God had me searching for youtube video's about Christian Fortitude. I found "Fire" Barnes Courtney. The Holy Ghost is unquentiable Fire. In the video, the man is hearing voices. Why? In hundreds and more years of history, men who claimed to talk to God may also have been able to hear other things. I had been a life long Christian. I was non-denominational protestant, and was called by God around the age of 30. I started talking to God, and experiencing The Spiritual. When I saw "Fire" by Barnes Courtney, it was like God gift wrapped a present for me to be able to talk about Faith and the Spiritual and cause and effect. The following blogs go into Faith and cause and effect. https://www.quora.com/profile/Adam-Ramsey-24/blogs Given you are with God, and experiencing God in a big way, you would be raptured? The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. (Isaiah 57:1) Isaiah 57:1 would be a rapture?

    What is the "Secret Rapture"

    It isn't that is was a "Secret Rapture." Many people lost touch with whom God is. They also believed some false things. The following is part of something God had me write about 9 months ago. Apocalypse I have written about The Apocalypse before. Every time it gets better. What is an Apocalypse? From Oxford Dictionaries: the complete final destruction of the world, especially as described in the biblical book of Revelation.From the Greek: "an uncovering" ", "a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities" "An opening of the eyes." The Bible States: 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 24:37-39.) Socratic Paradox. If everyone believes that are doing what is right or in their best interests, how can evil exist? Satan exists. Satan is a liar and deceiver, and he skews people's perspectives. He gives false senses of reality. Your average Christian may do wrong or sin knowing it was wrong. Some people do wrong, and then they work to justify a wrong. They lie about their wrong. They lie to themselves. They lie to others. Given speak a lie enough it becomes real? Satan is a liar and deceiver. Some lies become peoples realities. Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and have put their sinful stumbling blocks in front of themselves. Should I actually let them inquire of me? (Ezekiel 14:3) Lies and false idols and false belief blind us to God. 18 For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, 19 since what can be known[m] about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, that is, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what he has made. As a result, people are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20) Some people would rather believe lies than deal with the Truth. Ignorance is bliss. The Truth Hurts. Knowledge brings sorrow. (Ecclesiastes 1:18) When someone is arrested, and is guilty, and they are sitting in a room for questioning, what do they often do? Do they tell the truth? Do they fess up? Do they most often lie? Even if presented with evidence someone may double down on that lie. They want their phone call and a lawyer. I live in Durham, NC. Last week there were some protests over confederate statues. I was at a bar down the street. At this bar, previously, I have drank and talked with a man who says he is a gay atheistic Jew who went to Rabbinical School. He works for, or the company he works for, is tasked to the Southern Poverty Law Center. We have had some interesting conversations. I work to reveal to him the Truth. In the face of the Truth, God is self evident, he often buckles down. He works to change the subject. He is very stubborn and hard headed. I have been learning the best way to Apocalypse someone. At this bar last week I also talked to someone who claimed that he was not at the rally, but would have been if he did not have to work. I would describe him as a Confederate Gentleman. He also believes in lies. He believes these lies are truth. He has a false reality. I worked to explain the Truth to him. He told me there was no such thing as Truth. I held back on him. I have made the bar uncomfortable a few times talking about God, and out of respect for the bartenders I try to keep it to a minimum. Both men have a false perspectives and realities. These realities are lies that blind them to God. There is one Truth. Jesus Christ is the shining light of the World. Christians are children of the Light and not the Darkness. (Ephesians 5:8) Darkness is lies. Truth is light. Someone who believes in lies is in the dark. Jesus tells us to reject The World. The World is a World of lies and deception. Apocalypse Now! Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy." (Revelations 22:11) Given The New Testament and Parables like Parable of the 10 Virgins and Parable of the Wedding Banquet, not everyone is going to see the Son of Man. I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 8:11-12) Some people are wicked and practice wickedness. They may be entrenched in lies. They were not vigilant. They may not get the reward. For God to give a sign there would have to be a wicked and adulterous generation. There had to be mockers and a falling away. The Day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night.

    Son of Man

    What exactly is The Son of Man? God has reveled some things to me. There are a lot of complex ideas here. I will work to show them as best I am allowed to. I am going to connect some dots for Bible Study and contemplation. Son of Man would be Son of Adam? Able, the first murder, was a Son of Adam. He offered God his first born lambs and the best of his flock. (Genesis 4:4) The Lord is a Shepherd. Prophet Ezekiel is Son of Man in the Bible. Jesus is Son of Man. Son of Man may be roughly translated to "Born due to The Sins of Men." Able was born due to Adam's sin. Not because of sin or in sin, but due to sin, Able was born. Ezekiel came at a time where God's Judgement was being brought on Jerusalem and Judah. Ezekiel laid on his side for 390 days to simulate the siege of Jerusalem. He was "Born or Called Due to the Sins of Men?" There was a falling away, and God acted. Jesus is Son of Man. Jesus may have come at a time where there was a lot of wickedness similar to the time of Noah and/or Sodom and God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son. Jesus Christ prophesied the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem. Not too long after his death, the Temple was destroyed and then The Diaspora. In Ezekiel 23, Israel and Judah prostituted themselves with the Nations. God sent them into the Nations. Eye for an Eye? Jesus talks about Son of Man in the Third Person. Your Body is a Temple, the Spirit of God lives in you. Jesus lives in men through his Holy Spirit. Jesus talking about the Son of Man in the Third person may reference him living in people through his Spirit. The Son of Man returning on a Throne of Glory may be return in a man. (Matthew 25:31) Man is God's Glory. (1 Corinthians 11:7) A man's Body may be a throne? Going back to Ezekiel, Ezekiel is Son of Man. God takes Ezekiel's wife. 15 The word of the Lord came to me: 16 “Son of man, with one blow I am about to take away from you the delight of your eyes. Yet do not lament or weep or shed any tears. 17 Groan quietly; do not mourn for the dead. Keep your turban fastened and your sandals on your feet; do not cover your mustache and beard or eat the customary food of mourners.” (Ezekiel 24:15-17) God takes Ezekiel's wife. Why? Your Body is a Temple for the Spirit of God. God is long suffering. A Prophet may know God's suffering. In Ezekiel 23 you have Samaria and Jerusalem as wives God married who prostituted themselves with foreign gods and foreign nations. Ezekiel may have needed to know and feel loss. Also, God gave authority on Earth to Adam. Adam lost that authority in original sin. Man is made in the image of God. What man does on Earth may reflect something. A Prophet working in obedience to God may have given God legal authority to act due to spiritual laws. God was bringing his Judgement. God took Ezekiel's wife. God took Ezekiel's wife, and Ezekiel is Son of Man. The Son of Man comes as a Bridegroom looking for a Bride. Jesus Christ is the Bridegroom. There are the Parables of the 10 Virgins and the Parables of the Wedding Feast for example. Able being a Son of Adam, a shepherd, who offered his first born lambs to God was the first murder. God's plan is God's Kingdom. The Spirit of God has been like a train at a constant rate of motion working to bring all man back under God in God's Kingdom. Jesus Christ was God's sacrificial Lamb, his first born son, for man's sins. God works in particular ways. There are spiritual laws.

    Nothing New Happens Under The Sun and Patial Preterism

    The concept of "Nothing New happens Under the Sun" is important to understanding history, prophecy, and "The Signs of the Times." Any time 10,000 has popped up in the media, it may be a sign for something.

    The Forms and The Ties That Bind

    Question: What else can be done with The Forms and Christianity? God has a character. Spirits have various characters. Jesus cast out Spirits. Various heresies in Christian history may have been dressed up differently. They may have been of a specific spirit. Utilizing The Forms and "Enduring Spiritual Themes" someone may learn to see this. Baal Worship involved Temple Prostitution. There are references to prostitution in Ezekiel 16 and Ezekiel 23 and Revelations 17. Baal Worship may have been The Form of something. Anywhere there is ritualized sex that may be a Form of Temple Prostitution. Given you study Rasputin from Russia there was The Form of something there. The Form of what Rasputin did is similar to "The Children of God," a cult from the US in which Rose McGowan was from? They are very similar, The Form of something, but dressed up a little differently? What is The Form of Righteousness or Wickedness? The Pagans were wicked and they didn't have Sabbath? There is no Rest for The Wicked? That would be like Britany Spears in some of her videos? There are a variety of Bible Studies someone may conduct with this.

    The Forms and The Ties That Bind

    For a little while around 2000, "What Would Jesus Do" (WWJD) became a popular catchphrase. Many Christians wore wristbands or bracelets with WWJD on it to remind themselves to think about Christ in their daily actions and lives. Did they really know who Christ is? Did they really understand who the Son of Man is? Given they were taught a Post Modern Mush god or Official Script, they may have had false perceptions of who Jesus is. God revealed to me a concept to help break false perceptions. I had been calling it The Ties That Bind, but it is related to Plato and the Forms. The following are two past related posts that help explain what The Ties That Bind are and how The Forms work with the Bible: "Have Gun Will Travel:Christianity and the Ties That Bind" "The Forms" The Son of Man is The Form of something. To get the best picture of The Form of the Son of Man, we look at a variety of scriptures that reference The Son of Man. The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.” (Matthew 11:19) Jesus replied, "Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." (Luke 9:58) What would Jesus do? Your average Christian in 2000 may have overlooked these two scriptures. He may have been told God is love, and to love your enemies as yourself, and a variety of other things. They had a Form of who Jesus was in their minds. They may of had a false perception. Given some scriptures change someone's perception of who Jesus is, someone had a false perception. They need to look at the bigger picture, and change their perceptions. The Forms provide a good way in which to do this, and to study the Bible. King David was a Warrior King. He is part of prophecy. 9 Instead, they will serve the Lord their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them. (Jeremiah 30:9) Introducing David into the bigger picture of who Jesus is may change the perception of many people who believed in a Post Modern Mush god. King David was a Warrior King. He is a part of Prophecy. In Jeremiah 30, Israel is reestablished. Israel is currently a State, and Culturally Jewish people live there. King David is a Warrior King. Reading the New Testament from an Old Testament perspective, Jesus is The Lord. Jesus as a Prophet could not contradict himself or the Prophets. God spoke through the Prophets. The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name. (Exodus 15:3) The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies. (Isaiah 42:13) Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. (Matthew 10:34) Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends. (John 15:13) In working to understand who Jesus is, do all these these scriptures line up with someone's understanding of who Jesus is? No? They have a false perception of who God is. They have placed stumbling blocks between them and God. Yes? They may be on the verge of finding God in a big way. The Holy Ghost is a teacher and a councilor. The Forms is a useful tool for Bible Study. What is The Form of The Son of Man?
  13. One day, I was working for God, and studying my Bible, and The Holy Ghost pointed out Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 to me. Nothing new happens under the sun. The concept of "Nothing New Happens Under the Sun" became very central to what God was showing me in terms of prophecy. Later, I found that Partial Preterism kind of covers what God was showing me, but maybe not 100% perfectly. In terms of Prophecy, there is the Book of Jude. Jude 1:14 and Enoch 1:9 both are talking about a figure coming with with 10,000 or thousands upon thousands of Holy Ones to bring God's Judgement on The Wicked. Cyrus The Great was God's chosen conqueror to bring his Judgement upon Babylon. (Isaiah 45) Cyrus the Great is mentioned many times in the Bible favorably. Cyrus had 10,000 Immortals. 10,000 Immortals like 10,000 Saints? Cyrus the Great was also referred to as King of Kings rightly or wrongly? Cyrus the Great appears to have fulfilled Enoch 1:9. Nothing New Happens under the sun. We have Jude 1:14. There is also a similar reference in Deuteronomy 33:2. This concept of Nothing New Happens Under the Sun works for many things. One of the common critiques of Preterism is that John of Patmos would have been living through Revelations or wrote it after Revelations. Give John saw that Nothing New Happens Under the Sun he may have seen how God was working, and it may have helped aid him in understanding and Prophetic writing and/or his vision was informed by what he was seeing and experiencing.

    "When The Man Comes Around"

    God is reason. There is a link between reason and faith. Breaking down the lyrics of "When the Man Comes Around" was a big jump start into picking up Biblical reasoning for me. What I have seen is that whenever someone invokes some sort of religious imagery in song or lyric, it may be significant. Johnny Cash may have been religious. On another side it could be that Lucifer was known as an Angel of Light and he works to steal things. The day of The Lord comes as a thief in the night. Another aspect may be "God will not be mocked, and your reap what you sow." In general, any time someone invokes particular religious imagery, there may be something to it spiritually.

    "When The Man Comes Around"

    There is a difference between being a Prophet, and having The Gift of Prophecy. A 5 year old girl may have the Gift of Prophecy. A Pastor may have the Gift of Prophecy. A Church Elder may have the Gift of Prophecy. A Prophet has a function or role to play. The focus here is more on if the song is Prophetic. Another factor here may also be "The Power of the Tongue."
