God’s joint heirs are kings and priests of God in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; you are ALL ONE IN MESSIAH YESHUA. In MESSIAH you are Abraham’s seed heirs according to promise in Galatians 3:27–29. Today know Jesus better by READING BIBLE to STUDY LIKE BEREANS not just do what so called fake control freak cult pastors order you to do to manipulate your life. Messiah Jesus is coming to decide your reward based on if you are HIS SHEEP. Not what the fake prophet misquoted in Bible designed to lie to you because you lack knowledge. God says MY PEOPLE are destroyed for lack of knowledge of Bible. God says Study to show yourself APPROVED TO GOD not show off Bible verses you memorized. But APPLY the Bible to each need you have, read the specific TEXT daily to meet your need.Each one faces God alone on judgement day so remember God will not ask about what the pastor told you. God demands account of your PERSONAL LIFE not the total social media number of followers, bank accounts, mansions, private jets, size of your family, your status, class, colour or race. Each person must share Gospel to DIRECT PEOPLE TO GOD IN CHRIST. The Church you attend or the denomination is IRRELEVANT TO GOD. Letter to seven Churches in Bible warns Churches. Israel and Jewish people are ONE IN CHRIST JESUS to fulfill all God’s feasts, prophecies covenant promises. Isaiah 27:6 says, God will cause them that come of Jacob to take root Israel shall blossom and bud to fill the face of the world with fruit. The people of Israel return from parts of the world their ancestors dispersed take root. The land is blessed and people blessed in the world. Israel’s desert desolate is a major exporter of food to the world. The crops are major export by companies in Israel Isaiah predicted. Isaiah predicted in the Word of God over 2,600 years ago fruit of the land blessing Earth with physical food exported and fruits of God’s Word confirms by Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus. Zechariah says all nations on earth will come yearly to Israel to celebrate Feast of Tabernacles to worship LORD of Hosts. Zechariah 14:16. Isaiah points to road connecting Egypt to Assyria and through this area access road is being built called King’s Highway. Building a super highways links them with all the surrounding nations. These prophesies of Isaiah and Zechariah prepares way in advance in time for Messiah’s rule from His Throne in Israel. Jesus Rules whole Earth and all people will know God in the millennial kingdom in Israel after rapture and His second coming on earth after Armageddon. The land is prepared today to fulfil prophecy of Messiah Jesus as KING of Kings and Lord of lords. And above all countless multitudes of people of all nations, tribes, languages, colours, BELONGS TOGETHER IN HEAVEN AND LATER DWELL ON EARTH WITH GOD. God is not a respecter of persons to put any person above others by class, race, colour, wealth or status. Death is their leveller making all equal before God. No man is bigger or stronger than Jehovah God no matter how powerful they may feel in own eyes to inflate their ego.
GOD keeps in PERFECT PEACE the MIND kept on GOD because of TRUSTING GOD says Isaiah 26:3. A man declared FAITH in God that if GOD slays him he STILL LOVES AND TRUSTS GOD. In Job 13:15, Job’s faith in GOD was tested yet TRUSTS God and maintains his ways before God.Jesus Disciples said, they have nowhere else to go because Jesus has the WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE. In John 6:68, Simon Peter answered Jesus, Lord to whom do we go? No matter their fate, challenging circumstances of life they had nowhere to go but run to LOVING ARMS OF GOD.Jesus asked His twelve disciples “Do you want to leave too like Judas Iscariot for greedy love of money, for pleasures of the world etc betrayed Jesus? They said absolutely not because he who has the Son has life. No matter the issues of life Jesus warned of these perilous times.D.The Have CONFIDENCE in GOD to see you through life in Jesus Name. GOD says do not fear those who kill flesh but cannot kill the soul in Jesus Name FEAR GOD who kills soul. Bible says in John 16:2 they will put you out of synagogues or kill thinking they are DOING GOD a favour. The day is coming they will face WRATH of GOD on DAY of the LORD.JESUS COMES TO GIVE LIFE EVEN LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY IN JESUS NAME. As citizens of heaven THE REAL LIFE ETERNAL IN ETERNITY IS YET TO COME to reunite LOVED ONES as devil burns in hell for attacking GOD’S people globally. Example of faith is testimony of Horatio Spafford’s faith in GOD in his time of adversity. Weeping may endure but joy comes in the morning for those who MOURN with HOPE in Christ.On being notified of tragedy at sea and the loss of his children, Horatio Spafford immediately set sail for Wales to reunite with his heartbroken wife. Once at sea, Spafford asked the captain to point out exactly where the Ville du Havre sunk.
As he crossed fateful spot grief-stricken father sat with pen in hand and wrote what become one of Christendom’s most beloved song of HOPE and TRUST in GOD ELOHIM JEHOVAH in CHRIST.Christian believer’s salvation is in Christ alone because there is no other name given among men by which to be saved. In Psalm 139:8 Bible says, “If I ascend to the heavens GOD is there; if I descend in Sheol GOD is there. GOD’S WORD does not go void so achieves GOD’S purpose for sending word. In Psalm 139:9 If rise on wings of dawn or settle by farthest sea GOD is there. There is nowhere to go to escape wrath of God its a futile desire to run from the LORD so RUN to GOD. Philippians 4:7 says the PEACE OF GOD which passes all human understanding will keep your HEART and MIND SAFE in UNION with CHRIST JESUS. Its GOD’S Grace, Mercy and Compassion that gives Strength to endure in adversity to cope with grief, sorrow, pain, loss. GOD is still on the Throne so in Control of your life.
PERFECT PEACE FOR ALL WHO TRUST GOD.
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say, It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Though satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Diamonds and golds are a variety of the precious fine elegant jewellery items of everyday or special occasion celebrated. Western Europeans value diamonds as investment of great significant interest to them. Gold and diamond gemstones exhanged plus slaves sold for cowries or empty bottle glass beads during slave trade in Africa. Europeans travelled to the Maldives to harvest cowries filled with ships to West African Coast as currency for trade. The glass bottles are shipped to West Africa, grinded for making beads in exchange for the diamonds, gold and the slaves. A bizarre exchange took place whereby two waste products as cowrie shells and empty glass bottles recycled to Africa in exchange for gold, diamond and slaves. A deeper reflection of precious priceless treasures of gold, diamond and slaves in unfair exchange of cowry, glass bottles.The slave traders shipped thousands of barrels of glass, crystal and coral beads to Venice in Italy into West and Central Africa. Broken glass bottles melted used to make beads for exchange of African captives. English East India Company imported millions of the cowry shells to Europe sold in Africa by slave traders. Slave traders exchanged gold shells of certain species historically used their currency in several parts of the world. Used in the past is presently extensively used in jewelry and other decorative or ceremonial purposes. Cowry shell is most used worldwide as a shell money. Liverpool controlled 80% British slave trade and over 40% of glass bottle beads from Italy, cowries from Indian Ocean.Shell money medium of exchange is like coin money or other commodity money used in many parts of the world. Shell money consisted of whole or partial sea shells worked into beads by shapes. Use of shells traded by commodity exchange valued body ornaments. The distinction between beads, commodities as money debated by economic anthropologists.Some kings recruited women of Agoji to fight as an army of 4,000 women who battled against Europeans. West African Yaa Asantewaa in Ashanti, Gold Coast now Ghana and Kingdom of Dahomey between 17th and 19th centuries fought. These brave women who fought against slavery and colonialism. Lupita Nyongo went to Benin to explore army’s legacy.More than 1 billion tonnes of ivory has been taken by Western countries over a thousand years from Africa. But after independence they ban Africans from benefitting from ivory trade destroy by burning or crushing high-profile events in 21 countries around the world. Kenya and others forced to burn ivory in each country destroy 105 tonnes (231,000 lb) of ivory by fire so not funding projects.Precious gold was exploited by Western G7 countries which continue to own the mines all over the world. They brought bottles and cowries exchanged for gold and slaves exported to work in mines Brazil, South Africa among others. This underdeveloped African without them investing in people to own resources.Shell money in exchange for glass beads in America, Asia, Africa and Australia. The most familiar the wampum created by the indigenous peoples of East Coast, North America. Ground beads cut from purple marine bivalve shells. The shell used worldwide as currency is the shell of Cypraea moneta money cowry. Beads exchanged for gold and slaves or diamonds and cowries. Cowry species abundant in Indian Ocean was collected from the Maldive Islands, in Sri Lanka, along the Malabar coast in Borneo and other East Indian islands and African coasts from Ras Hafun or Mozambique. Cowry shell money traded by networks of Africa, South Asia, and East Asia.The first European nation in Transatlantic Slave Trade was Portugal in mid to late 1400’s. Captain John Hawkins made first English slaving voyage to Africa 1562 reign of Elizabeth 1. Hawkins made three journeys in six years. He captured over 1200 Africans sold as goods in Spanish colonies in Americas. British traders supplied slaves for Spanish, Portuguese colonists in America. British settlements in Caribbean North America grew in wars with European countries as Holland, Spain, France, British slave traders supplied British colonies. The British ships took part in the Slave Trade in the 245 years between Hawkins voyage or abolition of Slave Trade in 1807. British merchants despatched over 10,000 trips to Africa for slaves. Merchants in other parts of British Empire sent out a further 1,150 voyages. Portuguese, British, France, Spanish, Dutch Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Sweden, Norway all sold slaves as the Arabs sold slaves for centuries. The Arabs used cowry as Cypraea moneta. A print from 1845 shows cowry shells used as money by Arab traders. And in Western Africa shell money legal tender until mid 19th century. Before abolition of slave trade, large shipments of cowry shells sent to English port’s reshipment to the slave coast. The shells of Olivella nana a sparkling dwarf olive sea snail harvested from Luanda Island used as currency in Kingdom of Kongo. Al-Idrisi in mid-twelfth century described a King of Ghana tethering his horse to the huge gold in his palace taken by whites like a similar but lesser size gold in Australia. Abundant gold in South Africa cause the apartheid the bad treatment of blacks in their own motherland. Gold Coast now Ghana became finished because of gold. Black history deals with injustice issues of African suffering despite gold riches.Mansa Musa I from 1280 – c. 1337 was the tenth Mansa, translated as “sultan” “conqueror” or “emperor” of a wealthy West African Ghana, Guinea, Songhai Mali Empires. Mansa Musa, the Malian emperor was richest person in history with so much gold he is noted in ancient maps. He caused inflation in Egypt by giving away too much gold with 60,000 people entourage each carried gold bars he gave as gifts on his journey to Mecca.
They were traded north in the Kingdom of Benin. In Kongo called nzimbu, zimbo or eli in Ghana. The value of the cowry was much greater in West Africa than in the regions from which supply obtained so trade extremely lucrative. Some cases of gains said to be 500%. Use of cowry currency spread inland Africa. About 1850 German explorer Heinrich Barth said widespread in Kano, Kuka, Gando and Timbuktu. Barth said in Muniyoma one of ancient divisions of Bornu, king’s revenue estimated at 30,000,000 shells, with adult males paying annually 1,000 shells for himself 1,000 for each pack-ox, 2,000 for each slave in his possession.Countries on the coast fastened together shells in strings of forty or one-hundred each twenty strings represents a dollar. In interior laboriously counted one by one or, if the traders were expert, five by five. The districts mentioned above received supply of kurdi, as called, from the west coast. The regions to north of Unyamwezi, where they were in use under the name of simbi, dependent on Muslim traders from Zanzibar. The shells were used in remotest parts of Africa until early 20th century now use modern currencies. So other shells of large land snail Achatina monetaria cut i circles with open center used as coin in Benguella, Portuguese West Africa.Cowry shell medium of exchange early to mid-nineteenth century slave trade neighbouring local regions wore beads or sold abroad. Strange monetary value of cowry, empty glass bottles exchanged for slaves, gold and diamond in empires of Medieval West Africa, Ghana, Mali, and Songhay. David C Conrad, 2010 in book Juvenile Nonfiction said, Al-Idrisi, wrote in 1154, describing a natural gold nugget in the king’s palace is so big the reins of the king’s horse were tied to it. The African countries no longer use the reycled bottles from Western world it’s a problem their tons of waste no longer shipped to Africa. Africa still extension of Europe uses tons of local bottle waste to make glass beads so continues today. The debate continues why the European slave traders duped the Africans with a cowry and empty glass bottles for gold, diamonds, gems. And above all humans created by God worth of priceless value commoditized and dehumanised. Black history month focuses attention on this past treatment of black slaves and then abolishing slavery. Modern slavery and past issues of retribution, reparations, compensation for slave descendants is pending for justice. Bible says, Eye has not seen, ear heard or entered heart of man things God prepared for those who love Him in 1 Corinthians 2:9. God says HE will deal with injustice. Seek God in Christ Jesus to help supply your needs.
Jesus Christ’s SUPERBLOOD DNA of 2,000 years in Christian history drips on Adam at the spot buried. Jesus’ BLOOD is said to ran down crack in stone wall that fell on Adam resurrected as a saint in Jerusalem. When Jesus cried out in a loud voice gave up His Spirit that moment the curtain of temple tore in two from top to bottom. Earth shook, rocks split, tombs opened in Matthew 27:50-51 the dead came out alive seen by many.Earthquake on the day Jesus died is said to drip Jesus’ BLOOD. Romans crucified Jesus who died for sin of the world. The Jesus SUPERBLOOD DNA is UNIQUE did not contain Y male chromosomes. Jesus conceived through Holy Ghost miracle created by God so did not match human DNA. Attempts from Turin Cloth did not match human DNA. As Priceless SUPER BLOOD of Jesus directly created by God incomparable to human DNA.UNIQUE status of Jesus’ BLOOD shed for mankind for forgiveness of sins on the Cross. Father God FORGIVES ALL sins as Jesus is raised from death in Jerusalem seen by many people is wonder working Power in the BLOOD of Jesus. FORGIVES sins Jesus said, “they do not know what they were doing.” He forgave Barabbas chosen by “CROWD FROM ALL NATIONS under heaven in Jerusalem for Passover feast celebrations. Barabbas mentioned in all four gospels of New Testament in Matthew 27:15–26; Mark 15:6–15; Luke 23:18–24; John 18:40. Trial of Jesus by Pontius Pilate a Roman governor said Jesus is innocent so not worthy of death in Luke 23:15. So Pilate knew Jesus is hated by the chief priests handing Jesus to him in Mark 15:10 so looked for way to release Jesus. Pilate gave choice to release Jesus or Barabbas murderer in Luke 23:19. In Matthew 27: 25, ALL THE PEOPLE rejected Jesus and said “HIS BLOOD be on us and on our CHILDREN. ALL THE PEOPLE FROM ALL NATIONS ARE FORGIVEN by Jesus whether Jews or Gentiles. Replacement theology a lie because no one can replace Israel CHOSEN BY GOD JEHOVAH. Modern generations had NO control over choice predecessors made. so CHOOSE LIFE NOT not to be victim of curses of death of the past. The Choice of Barabbas could be a ‘yes’ answer but further invoked death, “Let His BLOOD be on us and our CHILDREN. So modern generations pay the price for their past choice but the GOSPEL GOOD NEWS IS JESUS HAS FORGIVEN ALL THAT DAY so CLAIM FORGIVENESS AND BREAK FREE from a death curse Jesus has FORGIVEN.Matthew 27:25, His BLOOD be on us and our children is misused by the Christian anti-semitism distorts this statement to promote racism. The Bible says the sins of the fathers will not be visited on their children not guilty of death of Jesus. The fathers will no longer eat sour grapes so children’s teeth is set on edge. PEOPLE FROM ALL NATIONS under heaven in Jerusalem agreed Jesus to be crucified. So Jewish generations cannot be blamed using Matthew 27:25 for hatred by the Church. Who made you judge? The Day of LORD is for KING Jesus Christ. Error of invoking GOD’S SUPER SACRED UNIQUE DNA BLOOD OF JESUS death by ALL THE PEOPLE FROM ALL NATIONS CROWD is sin. To deny Matthew 27:25 text is sin misleading people to ignore FORGIVENESS from Jesus. Jesus forgave Barabbas and prayed for FORGIVENESS FOR ALL NATIONS present at Jerusalem. Receive the FORGIVENESS Jesus paid the price for you with HIS PRECIOUS SHED BLOOD freely given. Israel is not RESPONSIBLE for Jesus’ death on Cross or replaced by CHURCH or NATIONS.People on pilgrimage to Jerusalem three times a year. They are Parthians, Medes, Elamites, Mesopotamians, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Phrygia Pamphylia, Asia Egypt, Libya Cyrene, Rome, Jews, proselytes, Cretans and Arabians all the people under heaven met in Jerusalem. Together with resident Jews as Bible text says, “dwelling in Jerusalem were Jews devout men from all nations under heaven.” Most were Jews by birth but in crowd was Gentiles converted to Jewish faith. Devout Jews together with the proselyte Gentiles Christians saved present in crowd from all nations under heaven for festival celebrated by Jesus. nor right to deny Matthew’s details of a ‘blood curse’ because the racist’s use for anti-semitism. All NATIONS and PEOPLE need FORGIVENESS OF JESUS whether a Jew or a Gentiles. Replacement theology lies because nobody can replace Israel CHOSEN BY GOD JEHOVAH. Teach and educate people on the living history of the BLOOD OF JESUS to break curse of death. Today I call heavens and earth as witnesses to set before you life, death, blessings, curse CONSEQUENCE OVER GENERATIONS in Matthew 27:25. Jesus BLOOD speaks life unlike blood of Abel in Hebrew 12:24, cries for vengeance and punishment. OUR COMPASSIONATE GOD FORGIVES by MERCY, GRACE to RECONCILE ALL to Jesus who prayed FATHER God FORGIVE THEM they know not what they were doing. On the Cross Jesus FORGIVES ALL AS AN OFFER WE CANNOT REFUSE. The crux of matter is ACCEPT FORGIVENESS of JESUS MESSIAH LORD AND SAVIOUR. Stop eternal and the spiritual death of sin separation of God by rejecting Jesus. Christ is Hope of GLORY but hated Jesus by anger of Israel losing children of His generation of 0-2 years old slaughtered coast to coast in all the twelve tribes in Israel. Created hatred for Jesus and the anger not saving from Roman bondage. Leaders set up Jesus due to fear of His popularity of the crowds. Fears Jesus will take power from them paid people to lie and chose Barabbas to be set free on a pardon on compassionate ground. Precious BLOOD of Jesus directly from God is more Holy than ordinary sacred blood. The transfer of sin to 3rd and 4th generation to 300 years is punished but God BLESSES for 1000 generations. Sins of fathers transfered to the descendants was part of the problem in the past. And innocent generations are weighed down heavily by DNA sin encumbered BLOOD OF JESUS. ALL THE NATIONS FORGIVEN by JESUS so are SAVED from sin of death over themselves or children. Those who target Jews must understand ALL implicated by CROWD from every nation under the heavens in Jerusalem during crucifixion of Jesus. A corporate punishment by association implicates ALL NATIONS represented in Jerusalem. REPENT to CHOOSE LIFE not by death of innocent Jesus’ BLOOD shed. Jesus is giver of life, blood saves, heals, cleanses from error, do not perish in Jesus Name. Understand sin against Jesus FORGIVEN by JESUS TO ALL NATIONS not just Jews so attack against Israel and God’s plans, purposes harassing Jews is against GOD WHO CHOSE ISRAEL as HIS people too.Make informed choices not to follow the crowd to sin against Elohim Jehovah. So Bible says CHOOSE LIFE so you or your CHILDREN may LIVE in Deuteronomy 30:19. Its incredible insight, CHOICE OF WORDS has CONSEQUENCES over other GENERATIONS. They said “crucify Him let His BLOOD be upon us, our children in Matthew 27:25. Jesus’ BLOOD speaks life not blood of Abel in Hebrew 12:24 crying out for vengeance punishment. FEAR GOD WHO KILLS THE BODY AND SOUL because there is no rest for all the wicked souls in the hell fire. They world must properly be taught and EDUCATED on BIBLE HISTORY important matters. Jesus’ COMPASSION and FORGIVENESS, MERCY, GRACE, PEACE RECONCILED to. God as Jesus prayed FATHER FORGIVE THEM for they know not what they were doing. Jesus FORGIVES AS OFFER WE CANNOT REFUSE. This is the crux of the matter FORGIVENESS GIVEN BY JESUS MESSIAH LORD AND SAVIOUR in GIFT of an eternal death. So spiritual death of sin separating us from God is removed by Jesus Christ Hope of GLORY. BLOOD OF JESUS for ALL WHO ACCEPT FORGIVENESS OF JESUS to SAVES ALL from sin of death curse of past for GIFT of eternal life in Christ Jesus.Woe to the world because offence must come but woe to that man by whom the offense comes in Matthew 18:7. Life in a less than perfect world is full of offence, God forgives as others forgiven by you. Respond with love as forgiveness begins with God’s pardon for sin to forgive. The Bible ssys with God,“all things possible in Matthew 19:26. Secret cause of stress plaguing millions of people unforgiven or not giving forgiveness says Dr. Don Colbert, MD. And Choosing to forgive is for your physical and mental wellbeing. Toxic stress levels rise by unforgiveness harboured. Refuse to lift or sip poison of anger, hatred, racism projected onto others. Choose to forgive to do good for total healing of mind, body, soul and spirit in Jesus Name. REVERSE CURSE SO BLOOD OF JESUS COVERS YOU AND BLESSES YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN IN JESUS CHRIST NAME.

Briggs recollected in her landmark 1971 book “Never in Anger,” about how calm and collected everyone was jarcontrast that created against her own unruly emotions. Even when some truly rage-worthy things happened like a teapot falling and smashing against floor the Inuit never betrayed a hint of anger. An “Emotional control is highly valued among Eskimos,” she wrote in the book. Indeed, maintenance of emotions under trying circumstances is essential sign of maturity, of adulthood.” Why so calm, she wondered? And more importantly, how can the rest of us get there? For the answer, Briggs looked to how children responded in difficult circumstances appeared to be something they learned from their parents. An simple parenting technique of Inuit is “Never scold child.” It became clear to Briggs when a young boy threw rock at her, related in a CBC interview, she didn’t berate him angrily, rather told him calmly it hurt. Instead of rage she told him real consequences of his actions caused her pain. Decades later, the writer Michaeleen Doucleff followed in Briggs’ footsteps in visiting Iqaluit, Canada, “in search of parenting wisdom. Said that teaching children to control their emotions is very important she writes in NPR. Doucleff found that a common strand among Inuit parents is: Across the board all mothers mentioned One Golden Rule: Don’t shout or yell at small children.”Among Inuit Arctic community Doucleff found the people practiced the theory that screaming at a child only teaches the child to scream. It is a vicious circle, the University of Pittsburgh researcher Ming-Te Wang noted in a 2013 study. “It is tough call for parents because it goes both ways: the problem behaviours of children create the desire to give harsh verbal discipline. That harsh discipline may push adolescents toward the same problem behaviours.” The Inuit society seems to have learned lessons long ago, and managed to break the cycle. And so “Traditional Inuit parenting incredibly is nurturing, gentle, tender,” as Doucleff writes. “If you took all parenting styles around the world and ranked them by their gentleness, Inuit approach would likely rank near the top.” What kind of children does that society produce? The kind who live harmoniously in world’s harshest climates often with threadbare resources. Survival hinges on making the most efficient use of natural world yet group still manages to be at peace with itself and with others. Maybe that’s because it’s also the kind of society that teaches kindness above all else. Jesus said do not let the sun radiate or set on your anger. Let it go for peace of mind.
