MESSIAH JESUS IN ISAIAH 53

1559054934144-685165869.jpgIsaiah 53:1 says, “Who believes our report and to whom is Arm of the LORD revealed?” 2 He shall grow up before HIM as a tender plant root from the dry ground with no form or comeliness. So see Him of no beauty to desire Him 3 He is despised and rejected of men as man of sorrows acquainted with grief. So hid our faces from Him as He was despised and not esteemed. 4 He bore our griefs and our sorrows. 5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed. 6 We all like sheep have gone astray and turned on our way; the LORD laid on Him iniquity of our sins. 7 He was oppressed and afflicted yet He opened not His mouth: He was brought as a Lamb to the slaughter or like sheep but did not open His Mouth. 8 He was afflicted for us but who is declaring Him to His generation? He was cut off from the land of the living for transgressions of my people was he stricken. 9 He was in the grave with the wicked and rich in death but did no evil with no deceit in His Mouth. 10 The LORD bruised Him and put Him to grief and made His Soul the offering for sin. HE sees HIS Seed raised after days as the LORD allowed in HIS HANDS. 11 HE sees travail of His Soul and His knowledge as a Righteous Servant justifies Him to bear iniquities. 12 His Portion is GREAT to Spoil spoilers and strong because He poured His Soul to death. He was with transgressors and bore our sin making intercession for us.15590550966781518400173.jpgDeclare to all generations He was cut off from the land of the living for the sake of the transgressions of MY PEOPLE and whipped. Isaiah 52:13-53:12 is about the Servant Song Book of Isaiah on Jesus the “Righteous Servant” of God. The Son of God came not to be served but to Serve and Give His Life as a ransom for many. All who believe and receive Jesus are Children of God. YAHWEH said, MY PEOPLE perish for lack knowledge and understanding so study Bible to learn. Isaiah 53 represents Jesus the Messiah and the Saviour to all nations sent by God to REDEEM sinners to restore them back to God. Jesus took on Him the punishment of all nations so all who accept Jesus Christ belong to God. Jesus a Jew from Israel is Chosen by God together with Israel who bears pogroms and suffering in Isaiah 52:4 on behalf of all others in Isaiah 53:7,11–12. Jesus is highly exalted by God to nations and kings in Isaiah 52:15 to repent for “He GAVE His Soul to death to save us.” Individuals are to follow Jesus Christ so personally saved and also nations as a whole. Christ SACRIFICED His Life as the Messiah for personal salvation. God commanded Philip to teach Ethiopian eunuch sitting in chariot, reading Book of Isaiah about Jesus. The eunuch didn’t understand what he read so Philip helps to explain to him its teachings on Jesus. The eunuch asked Philip, who was this prophet in Isaiah 53? Philip opens same scripture to preach to Eunuch about the Messiah Jesus Christ. Christians believe report Jesus is Messiah in Isaiah 53:1 so “the Arm of the LORD is revealed.” The Ethiopian Eunuch believed so baptised immediately by Phillip. The Jews and Gentiles are forgiven by Jesus on Cross because all have sinned and fallen short of the GLORY of God. All mankind’s sins are forgiven so nobody is to be blamed or hated for the crucifixion of Jesus. In Jeremiah 31:23, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in cities when I bring them from captivity; The LORD bless you O home of justice and mountain of holiness. Israel is restored after 4,000 years as a nation with own language spoken and written again. This miracle never happened in history before shows recreation by God of the world to come. As Israel is restored to original nation so God restores earth.1559055403778-685165869.jpgBut many others, despite Jesus’ signs and miracles do not believe Jesus is the Word made Flesh to dwell among us in 1 John 1:1, as Isaiah also prophecied. So not all obey the GOSPELS as Romans 10:16 said. And Isaiah 53:1 said, not all will believe the GOSPEL report although Jesus fulfilled Isaiah 53. The Arm of the LORD is a metaphor for YAHWEH’S activities in living history. Isaiah 53:4 is quoted in Matthew 8:17 as Jesus heals people in Christian ministry fulfilling what Isaiah said “He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses and by His stripes we are healed.” God gave Jesus as atonement for all sin to redeem mankind from separation from God. So the Gospel made available to share with all who choose to listen and be saved. A timeline is set by God to share GOSPEL until the time of the Gentiles ends. Only God knows exact time is so important to accept Jesus to be saved. Opportunities are given to all to decide to accept Jesus and have Eternal Life. Or join those who refuse to believe Gospel Reports of the testimony of Jesus salvation and so face the consequences of God’s WRATH and Jesus’ With to come upon the earth. The News is full of ongoing warnings of the Arm of God to alert mankind to repent. Why gain the whole world and lose your soul? Be persuaded not death or life or angels or principalities or powers or things present or things to come or height or depth or any other creature can separate us from the LOVE of God, in Christ Jesus our Lord says Roman 8:38:39. The GREATEST GIFT from God is GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ. All you need to do is to accept Jesus, repent confess your sins to God and follow Jesus as your personal Saviour. It is a fearful thing to Fall into the HANDS of the LIVING God YAHWEH by rejecting Jesus Christ as your Lord.   

 

WANT A PERFECT CHURCH?

1542022687617-1302569310.jpgI AM the Alpha and Omega the First and the Last. What you see, write in a book and send to the seven Churches in Asia. Write things you see now and things to happen afterwards in Revelations 1:11, 19. Today’s Churches compared to the 7 Churches show things are not perfect or everyone is perfect because Christians serve is a PERFECT God so expects all to be perfect in Church. Speak to a pastor, minister, elder, congregation members of any Church and there is not one who is not dealing with one thing or another. It was exactly the same in 7 Churches in Revelations with the various problems encountered in those Churches. Today’s Church on earth falls under categories of these 7 Churches so is not perfect. The seven churches in Bible described in Revelation 2-3 are literal Churches at the time apostle John was writing that Revelation. Today these literal Churches have spiritual significance for Churches and believers today. The first purpose of letters was to communicate with literal churches to meet the needs of the time. A second purpose reveals the different types of individual member’s characters in Church throughout history to instruct them better in God’s TRUTH. The third purpose is these seven churches WARN modern Churches. The problems of that time fits today’s views on each of these seven Churches describing all issues in Church history. These seven churches represent focus of message God gives a Church of God. The seven churches are:1542275081129-1953533357.jpg1542275824877-1302569310.jpg(1) Ephesus Church in Revelation 2:1-7  forsook first love Jesus Christ 2:4 to be involved in idolatry or other priorities. The worshipers indulged in their basest religious rites of sensuality and wildest bacchanalian excessive vicious orgies to worship of Cybele in Paul’s time. In two years Word of God from the school of Tyrannus spread out of experience Paul wrote, great and effectual door opened to me but there are many adversaries” in 1 Corinthians 16:9. John, the “apostle of love” and the “son of thunder,” came to Ephesus as a pastor exiled to Patmos, after ten years returned to Ephesus. The Basilica of Saint John, located on highest point built over traditional burial spot of Apostle John. In Ephesus church Paul mentions sexual immorality misconduct and inappropriate sex communications, pornography, physical sexual adultery. Impure, unholy, unclean life, Ephesians 4:19 of believers entangled in various sins in Ephesians 4:17–19. All Christians are to be free from “sexual immorality,” covetousness in Exodus 20:1 passionate desire for things belonging to other’s by lusting after their wife. Selfish greed to take overt subtle actions in thought and attitudes. Paul said such things should not exist among believers as Christians so confess sin to God and seek to get of it in 1 John 1:9. To be accountable for the health of entire church. Paul says a pure church has proper conduct among saints to avoid these kinds of problems in Corinth in 1 Corinthians 5. So sexual immorality tolerated in Church caused problems for entire congregation costs respect for Christ a bad press witness to the world. The ethics of Greek culture clashed with ethics of Jesus as sexual immorality was accepted fact of life. For common people in Greek culture it was so but not to be so among the followers of Jesus. A man took his father’s wife in sexual relationship either married or if living together with stepmother his father’s wife. This ‘Christian’ woman’s sexual immorality is not even named among Gentiles. Paul said, incestuous relationship taboo pagans culture didn’t do Corinthian Christians accepted incest not even named among GentilesIt is sin in Bible Leviticus 18:8, Deuteronomy 22:30; 27:20. Yet Corinthian Christians didn’t seem bothered by it at all. Their reaction to the sin was: you are puffed up and not mourned so this sin might be taken away from among you. The sin was bad but Paul is more concerned Corinthian Christians seem to take the sin lightly, unconcerned didn’t mourn sin behaviour. Paul dealt with problems of Corinthian Christian’s wrong ideas of God’s POWER at work and HIS servants. Paul deals with moral problem thinking to bring change through God’s Word. So “he who did this might be taken away from among you. Paul’s solution to the problem was remove unrepentant man from protection of fellowship of God’s people. Corinthian Christians did not do so as Corinth’s sexual immorality pagan religion didn’t value purity. Corinthian’s religious sexual pleasure  by concubines is fun as wives bear legitimate children. God’s law in Leviticus 18:8 forbids a sex with stepmother not see their nakedness as father’s wife. Rabbi Akibah on Gentile convert to Judaism says new person, old family relationship did not count. Open-minded tolerated sin puffed up did not mourn. Corinthians must grieve for the man and take him away from Church.1542276701749-1302569310.jpg2. SMYRNA Church suffers martyrdom for Christ in Revelations 2:8-11 suffers persecutions (2:10). Their city adorned by noble buildings, beautiful temples of Zeus, Cybele (Diana), Aphrodite, Apollo, Aesculapius. Smyrna theater, odeum, music center, stadium Polycarp bishop of Smyrna and student of apostle John, martyred was burnt alive A.D. 155. Lord Jesus’ letter to Churches said He knew their sufferings and poverty so did not condemn them. Church at Philadelphia had continuous existence as lampstand moved so few Christians live in Izmir. Undercover, make indirect contact, do not come out in open because Christians are persecuted today in modern Turkey. Smyrna church covers the period from A.D. 100 to approximately A.D. 314 from death of the apostle John to the Edict of Toleration by Constantine in A.D. 313 ended persecution of Christians all over the Roman Empire’s ten intense periods of persecution by ten Roman emperors: Nero: 64-68, Paul beheaded under reign Domitian: 95-96. John exiled period and Trajan: 104-117 (Ignatius burnt at stake) Marcus Aurelius: 161-180 (Polycarp was martyred) Severus: 200-211 Maximinius 235-237 Decius: 250-253 Valerian: 257 -260 Aurelian: 270-275 Diocletian: 303-313 the worst emperor of all. Christians stood up for God and King Jesus to obey God rather than men so paid price with their lives. Like Solemnity to Lord Jesus Christ King of Universe instituted 1925 by Pope Pius XI pushed against a rise of secular political allegiance of Christians. Their faculties was exempt from the empire so Christ reigned in their minds, reigned in their wills, reigned in their hearts. So Christ their King they believed will soon topple kingdoms and replace all human despots with Kingdom of God. Jesus is their ONLY TRUE KING so no one except Christ POWER received their allegiance. Doctrine of Christ their King understood loved not their lives unto death. Faith to them more important than a rule of law contended to defend their faith believed and received as Christians. God’s Rule in Jesus outweighs all kingdoms outweighs everything else so its No King but Jesus. For Christians, God monarchy kingship of Jesus totally invert power gold crown and wealth. His coronation on the Cross crowned with thorns, dug into his head. King Jesus looked to world as abdicated royal status born in manger of David’s City, Jesus, monarchy is defined by His ULTIMATE SACRIFICE to ransom many. Christ’s Kingship coronation on a Cross was not glamourous dress processions ermine and orbs glorious courtiers. It was for the dispossessed His Monarchy brought spirit closer to God through His Blood as Servant KING Priest into whose service many are saved and baptised.1542275166770-729587537.jpg(3) Pergamum Church in Revelations 2: 12-17 needs to repent (2:16). Pergamos temples and library of the pagan world. Parchment (pergamena) used by library Mark Antony to Cleopatra of Alexandria in Egypt. So evil was the city satan’s seat of religion in Pergamum’s headquarters of all kinds of cultish schism divisions. Jesus said satan’s throne in Pergamum because of heathen temples now ruins today. Dionysius Bacchus, god of wine, goat-god depicted with horns, but with his upper part as a man and lower part a goat with cloven feet the god of wine or alcohol, liquor takes more territory than anything else. Greek god Asklepios, a man but Anatolian Oriental Asklepios, is a serpent temple prostitution of sexy voices healing satanic in their day. Jesus commended His believers at Pergamum to hold fast My Name as faithful defend Christ. Arian heresy denied the deity of Christ but Athanasius from North Africa was great defender of the faith because of him the Council of Nicea in A.D. 325 condemned Arianism. Augustine rejects Pelagian heresy denied original sin by total corruption of human nature and irresistible grace. These are two giants this period stood unshakably for great doctrines of Christian faith.1542283658129-1302569310.jpg(4) Thyatira Church in Revelation 2:18-29 on false religion (2:20). Jesus said, I know your deeds, love, faith, service perseverance, doing more than you did at first in Revelation 2:19. Five qualities are: 1) love 2) faith 3) service 4)  patient endurance 5) greater works. Jesus notes they tolerated Jezebel’s idol prophetess, misleading God’s servants into sexual immorality and eating food sacrificed to idols in Revelation 2:20. False religions led believers to compromise in a Church engaging in sexual immorality, dabbling in idolatry. Jezebel’s idolatrous actions oppose God’s way, false teachers kept in Church believers in Thyatira allowed to continue deception. Jesus pronounced a judgment on “Jezebel” and calls Church of Thyatira to repent of sin: “I will cast her on bed of suffering, make those who commit adultery with her suffer, unless repents of evil way I will strike children dead in Revelation 2:22-23. And Jesus encourages the faithful: “I say to the rest of you in Thyatira who do not hold to her teaching by not learning satan’s ways I will not burden you. Hold on until I come in Revelation 2:24-25. So faithful believers didn’t fall into satan’s trap, need to remain faithful till Christ’s return. Jesus promised angels, believers in Thyatira: “All who overcome and do My will to the end I’ll give authority over the nations to rule them with an iron scepter to dash them into pieces like the pottery with authority from My Father God. Daniel prophesied all other kingdoms will fall, shattered by a stone not cut by hand. The living stone is Jesus Cornestone of the Church. I will give you the morning star in Revelation 2:26-28). Blessings include 1) authority over nations, 2) victory over enemies 3) Morning star Jesus in Revelation 22:16 given to His Church to fellowship rules together forever.1542277538911-1302569310.jpg(5) Sardis Church in Revelation 3:1-6 is fallen asleep. (3:2). To the angel of the Church in Sardis writes John’s message from the Lord, Words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and seven stars. Jesus has seven Spirits meaning perfect Spirit of God only Jesus holds the seven stars or the seven angels or pastors of the seven churches in Revelation 1:20. Jesus condemns lifeless state of Sardian church: “I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive but dead says Revelation 3:2. This church had a good reputation, but spiritually lifeless, filled with unsaved people going through the motions of religion. The tares among wheat in Matthew 13:24-30 Jesus calls them to repent of sin to “Wake up and strengthen what remains, about to die. Change bad deeds to become complete in the sight of God. Remember what you receive, hear, obey, repent in Revelation 3:2-3. Pay attention to needs of salvation and care about Jesus in the heart before God. Jesus judgment takes place if they do not repent: “If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief and not know time I will come in Revelation 3:3. A Church unrepentant is dead so disciplined by Jesus Himself. Jesus encourages Sardis Church to be faithful as a few people in Sardis did not soil clothes with idolatry. So will walk with Jesus dressed in white for they are worthy says Revelation 3:4. Faithful remnant garments are so pure and “worthy found in Paul’s teaching in Ephesians 4:1; Colossians 1:10; and 1 Thessalonians 2:12. “Worthy” of faith in the heart faithful ones are promised to walk with Jesus in white says Matthew 22:11-12; Revelation 19:8. Jesus promise to believers in Sardis as overcomes will, be dressed in white and will never blot out names from the book of life. And so acknowledge names before My Father and his angels says Revelation 3:5)l. The overcomers are born again in 1 John 5:4 receive white garment of righteousness eternal security so confessed by Jesus in heaven in Luke 12:8.1542278829955-1302569310.jpg(6) Philadelphia Church in Revelations 3:7-13 endured patiently (3:10) says the Lord, who identifies Himself, Him who is Holy and True, who holds the key of David. What He opens no one can shut, and what He shuts no one can open is a description Jesus used to emphasize His Holiness, Sovereignty and Authority by reference to key of David’s Messianic prophecy of Isaiah 22:22. Jesus Opens and Shuts doors no one reverses. Jesus affirms Church’s good actions: “I know your deeds. See, I place before you an open door no one can shut. I know you have little strength but kept My word so not denied My Name in Revelation 3:8. Church of Philadelphia weak, remained faithful in face of trial so Lord promised them “open door” blessing. Jesus’ letter condemns enemies of the Philadelphian believers I will make those of synagogue of satan, who claim to be Jews but come and fall at your feet and acknowledge I love you says Revelation 3:9. Those who persecute believers religious hypocrites realize Christ Loves His loyal Children. Church of Philadelphia victorious over enemies. Jesus encourages believers of His future Coming: “Since you kept My command to endure patiently, I will keep you from the hour of trial to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth. I am Coming Soon. Hold on to what you have so no one takes your crown in Revelation 3:10-11. Church’s faithful endurance is a blessing. Jesus will take them to be with Him before Great tribulation in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. He says to remain faithful because of rewards in the afterlife. Rapture event is distinct from Second Coming of Jesus Christ. So Philadelphians are promised to be saved, preserved from time of Great tribulation happening after Rapture. Jesus told Philadelphia believers and all believers, ‘All who overcome I will make a pillar in Temple of My God. I will write NAME of My God and Name of City of My God the New Jerusalem coming down from heaven from My God and write on you My New Name in Revelations 3:12. God Honours the overcomer’s pillar names in heaven like custom in Philadelphia. He makes pillar for each in Spiritual Temple of God New Jerusalem from heaven in Galatians 2:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 6:16 Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Peter 2:4-10. Jesus makes everlasting pillars in the House of God and strengthens weak believers Philippians 4:13. Jesus comforts, blesses Philadelphians who faithfully stood for Christ in pagan culture. His words serve as encouragement to faithful believers.1542275559897-1302569310.jpg(7) Laodicea Church in Revelation 3:14-22 lukewarm faith not hot / cold (3:16). The Laodicean Church, not commended by Jesus’ message condemning them of deeds neither cold nor hot will spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I acquired wealth so don’t need anything. You are wretched, pitiful, poor so blind and naked in Revelation 3:15-17. Jesus said, lukewarm three times due to their spiritual lackadaisical attitude, Jesus has nothing to do with them “spit” them out.” Their apathy is spiritual blindness to be rich blessed self-sufficient rich in material things. Spiritually, Laodiceans a wretched, pitiful condition ignorant of their need in church of the self-deceived hypocrites. Jesus tells Laodicean church to repent of sin: I tell you buy My gold refined in fire, to be rich and buy white clothes to wear to cover nakedness. Put salve on eyes, to see as Revelation 3:18 says their material wealth of no eternal benefit. Jesus says come to Him for true, Spiritual riches in Isaiah 55:1-2. Christ’s eternal inheritance clothe righteousness and heal spiritual blindness. Jesus loves rebuke to discipline in earnest to repent saying, Here I am! I stand at your door and knock. If you hear My voice, open door I will come and eat with you and you with Me in Revelation 3:19-20. God disciplines those HE LOVES in Hebrews 12:6 so change, repent to let Jesus come in and take His rightful place in Church to dine with His Children like last Super close relationship. Jesus tells believers in Laodicea who overcome, I will give the right to sit with Me on My Throne as I overcame and sit with My Father God by HIS Right Hand on HIS THRONE says Revelation 3:21 so share Christ’s future Kingdom. Love for Christ must not be destroyed by the deceitfulness of wealth and desires for other things to choke the Word in Mark 4:19. Christ says repent to choose to live to serve God, Joshua 24:15 says Jesus calls all to follow Him today. Jesus warns in Matthew 24:11 in the last days, there will be many false Christ’s claiming to be Jesus. Trust and believe ONLY Jesus in Bible LIVING in heaven on the RIGHT Hand of God and so is not physically on earth. Jesus warns people, beware of false prophets in the last days so those who claim to be Christian must understand scripture on false prophets not to follow Russian Jesus, Australian Jesus, Jim Jones wacko of waco. They are followed since they grew in Church schooled in the Bible. Know verses used to convince people they are ‘born again’ Christians. People draw closer to them but can’t see things at first. Pin imageIf things don’t add up like a real Church of Jesus should be, some make mistake of challenging them so do adapt to fool people. Other people discover what the original groups knew secretly but trust them because sermons are perfect as a saints but actions don’t synchronise. So people leave the Church but they attack them as spiritual prostitutes not faithful to the pastor. Those psychologically left behind are hooked sink and barrel pour in money loose home, property. Lack of accurate knowledge means stays behind out of fear and Church has them. Pastor in a pulpit or pew members always has false pastor or churches existing etc. NO PERFECT Church exists yet on earth. An idiot pastor can be seen through actions but others never give their game away. Ignorance or lack of confidence in God, makes some people rely on Charlatans. So charming use genuine pastors, members as frontline workers to create trust despite evil ways, successful. Their elect remnant faithful few God uses so Churches thrive against all odds. Their exploited insiders taken advantage of hurt by trusted tainted vessel delivering GOSPEL. But IT DOES NOT MEAN GOD, JESUS, HOLY SPIRIT GOSPEL tainted. In Jesus Name they heal the sick, deliver people do miracles and wonders and people go to heaven. But Jesus said they depart from Him as evil doers He does not know. They showed off miracles to pull crowds to impress people, play God and take God’s GLORY instead of giving credit and Honour to God. Lucifer wants to be God not a servant of God so not man of God in the true sense of the word. Paul said he did not want to lead others to God and perish so he ran the race to win the price. Paul in Gospel told people since his repentance he lived by good example, worked hard, sold tents earned income so did not rely on their Church donations to make money. And he received free gifts cheerfully given by people to him. Taught them he was a preacher servant of God but was saved like everyone else. He had to work out HIS salvation with fear of God too and by trembling in humility. Yes that Paul became different from Saul an official. These leaders take the mick by saying they are Jesus, God will deal with heresy and blasphemous mocking. But people choose to follow them knowing deep down they’re at peace within. Yet seek them because there in no dispute they have a hint of good bringing people the word. But if different people claim to be Jesus and open churches it takes two to tango so a false prophet or false pastor needs gullible, vulnerable people props. Stockholm syndrome attachment forms so deceived Jesus said in Matthew 24:24 be discerning or even an elect deceived. 15422880117261978514216.jpgThey are cunning manipulative smooth operators who debilitate victims. They gradually suck victims dry and it’s hard to notice it’s taking place. Use reliable front men as trustworthy foot soldiers. So it’s hard to believe things going on in secret chambers. Some members there years unaware of evils going on but the few inner circles who expose them are blacklisted, blackmailed or even killed in extreme cases. Jesus says that test the spirits to see if they are from God and by their own personal private life fruits you will know them. Since there is no perfect pastor or nobody is perfect still assemble together anyway. Check if the contents of pastor’s character is biblical or members faithful if yardsticks to go by in Church. Bible says House of God has vessels of dis/honour as wheat and tares so God had Lucifer Jesus had Judas Iscariot so Churches faces challenges too. DEPEND ON GOD and FOCUS ON JESUS and the HOLY SPIRIT. God says soon nobody will need anyone to teach them to KNOW God. GOD WILL TEACH PEOPLE DIRECTLY THROUGH WORDS, READ, STUDY BIBLE, PRAY SEEK GOD’S FACE. Thank God for HIS Grace and Mercy in Jesus Name. The false prophet does not mean they don’t have anything good to offer. They are God’s Creation in image of God but sincerely so ignorantly wrong. Some are mentally deranged or others fulfill prophecy Jesus said about endtime false prophets. Jesus said at times go to learn from mistake of others to avoid it and learn from wise to grow Timothy in faith. Timothy in Bible says, check a pastor’s domestic track record if loyal husband of one wife; takes care of their family as good role model, honest, genuine approved by God. Faithful to a wife, handles money well, trustworthy, reliable, dependable, honest, caring, compassionate, sincere. Our first duty to ourselves is please God not a watchman policing false pastors or fake Christian Church members. It is your decision to ask God to deliver you in Jesus Name from oppressive Church. Today people attend Church with preconceived ideas of what Church is in their head. They go there based on what they want see, feel or experience, elated or disappointed by Church. Many look for a perfect Church but its illusion because it does not exist. 1542283999442-1302569310.jpgDo not assume all Church members are born again believers, following, obeying God in a heavenly atmosphere enjoyed on earth. Don’t enter a Church premise with attitude of great expectations that satisfy your assessment checklist. Good members can meet a standard checklist analysis during the honey moon period. Loyal ones remain consistently reliable and dependable so trustworthy serving for years. Others come and go, or thorns in the flesh of Church but do not leave. Toxic members and leader’s factions in Church is like Judas Iscariot with Jesus and His Apostles to sabotage or kill their leader. Also action of lucifer challenged by God in heaven led to satan and one – third angels thrown down from heaven. Confronted by God ganged up to falsely accuse God to cause division. Complex Church problem of the autocrat leaders manipulating their vulnerable members taken advantage of. Have no choice but become their pawns used to divide and conquer members for their selfish ends. Requesting money after praying or with coloured candles, baths in river streams unlike leprosy cured by Elijah. So prays curses on people, repetitive prayers or chants not in Bible. Favouritism of petty jealousy resurfaces again and again so emotions and feelings hurt in process. It shocks all, ruins Church so some to fall away from God or standard too strict to conform some rebel so leave. Whatever situation congregation pew members or leaders face problems daily unresolved is left to fester is scandalous so damages reputation of the Church. Stated in Bible some people fall away denouncing their Church. A series of events accumulates until breakdown in communication and cannot be resolved. People lose faith in God based on human actions they have observed or are forced into partaking in repulsive some never recover suffering in silence. Others under a thumb of the leader not relying on God, chewed and spewed out, other victims replace them. Multiple victims are played like game of chess so none particularly gains upper hand to rock perpetrator’s boat. On the surface at a glance, things seem normal until dust settles later as reality sets in. Fight, flight, swim or sink mode is the decision faced with nowhere to go. Fear of maintains hold of leader’s secret and privileged information is need to know basis style of leadership. 1542284906118-1302569310.jpgHidden secret meetings takes place and people aware helpless cannot intervene or take action due to their fear of being targeted excluded or killed. So Girls and boys are groomed in a Church twisting their mind to make them feel it’s their fault. Follow instinct and gut feelings which tends to be right if it’s too good to be true. So stay away from such people promising the moon but discards you by ghosting you when they finish with you. Suffering, pain and damage cost you so stuff gone through is not worth the pain stop things and leave immediately. You have power to stop don’t play the victim relying on the perpetrator to stop. They never stop as long as you allow it you’re manipulated so means you agreed. The perfect Church longed for does not exist because no Church can cater for all the member’s needs as all human beings are imperfect. No such Church exists so dreams of ever finding perfect church is fantasy. Scripture says perfect Church is possible according to Word of God. But in reality various definitions of perfect Church is the cause of the problem. Stop wasting time looking for perfect Church because no church is perfect. Church on earth is made up of imperfect and sinful people seeking help from God in Christ to become whole. 1 Corinthians 1:1-9 in Bible describes the perfect church. Don’t bother looking for perfect Church you’ll be disappointed. It is impossible to find it right on earth until Lord Jesus returns to set up His NEW Church of God. So put hope in God in Church that loves God in this life if even not perfect. Ideal Church of God will happen when PERFECT Jesus Christ Reigns. No human being at this moment is perfect enough as a leader or perfect Church members. People’s ideas of perfect Church is the pastor preaches appealing sermons or a worship music stirs people. Presentation is flawless so programs address life needs in trendy facility. Definition concentrates on the program of the perfect church as people expect to make Church perfect. Eyes on others in body of Christ to hold them accountable as responsible for making a Church perfect. Focus on faults causes imperfection of Church yet the accusers are not perfect either.1542288141401-1953533357.jpgA perfect Church is determined by those who measure things important to life in Church programs, plans, property and possessions. Distracts Church people to follow for material or health needs. Do not teach love Jesus as 1 John 4:2-3 says is their personal saviour and friend to be in love with and adored. So recognise the Spirit of God to acknowledge Jesus Christ came in flesh from God in heaven and will return in the flesh to Reign on earth. Colossians 3:12-14 says God’s CHOSEN people to be holy dearly loved clothed in compassion kindness, humility, gentleness, patience. Bear with each other forgive grievances against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgives you. 14 Above all these virtues put on love to bind them all together in perfect unity. Forgive those who offend you live altogether in perfect harmony. A Church in perfect harmony where all live happily ever after. A perfect church where everyone is loved so loving each other as one united community. Love of God in Christ binds Christians together in fellowship. Love helps us to grow in Spirit and in Truth maturing in things of God. Perfect harmony expresses love in Christian community and Galatians 5:22-25 describes fruits of Holy Spirit to aspire to achieve. The deepest genuine relationship with Jesus Christ flows by their love from God as Jesus prayed His followers be one. In many the Churches connection craved through Godly love is lacking or misinterpreted by lust. Can a perfect church in a community grounds for abomination? Actions speaks louder than words so a perfect sermon must be practicalized for all to see by agape love of believers as God’s Children by their love for each other. Remember an obea, juju, vudu priest, witchdoctor’s oracle’s predict future too as Saul saw Samuel appear to a witch at Endor in disguise. Ability to forecast or predict things in the NAME of God is not a yardstick for measuring true prophet of God. Their fruits in God’s Word, sermons performs miracles, healing, signs, wonders but a vessel needs deliverance, salvation and mercy of God. Paul said he did not want to lead others to Christ but perish so runs the race like the congregation to win a prize too. Jesus warned people performing miracles in His Name, save, heal people with signs and wonders but do it to show off to take God’s GLORY so does not PLEASE and HONOUR God. For wrong reason of pride, ego God rejects them despite their personal attempts to impress God. Salvation is in the Name of Jesus not in their display of miracles to pull crowds. They may be used to save others but are sincerely wrong by not humbly submitting to God’s Authority. 154228825875025945107.jpgPerform miracles to impress people and become ‘god’ to their followers. People quote what they say more than God’s Words in the Bible. Instead of being the channel leading people to God become conduit drawing people to themselves for praise and adulations. Forget there is no other Name among men by which people will be saved play God to a point their “fruits” of what they do and what they tell you to do are contrary to what the Bible teaches. Tell some members to practice greater love and lay their lives down for them but do not return same favour. Uses people to build themselves up rather than build God up in Christ. Constantly attack members, find faults belittles, humiliates to feel powerful but scrutinize their personal behaviour and character, how they talk, act in private. Instead building up to encourage to put up with one another, warts and all and accepting actions to correct attitudes of immature baby Christians, is very harsh unlike God’s mercy. So creates pain and bitterness to hurt people not Holy Spirit allowed to change them so are draining or emotionally tiring. Money conscious, materialistic minded, always preach the “all these things” health wealth doctrine but filled by spiritual pride. Live sinful lifestyle but separate the flesh body lust from their spiritual body in Christ. Dual personality concept excused used to fool and abuse members justify sin, reassure victims God is aware so its acceptable. A tendency to misinterpret Bible, secretly lust after attractive ladies in Church. Do not be deceived or encouraged to ignore devil defeated so doesn’t count. Positive response is to use a practical wisdom in Romans 12:9-13:10 to build up body the of Christ not focus on people’s faults but FOCUS on Sovereign God in Christ as it’s all about God FIRST. A Church is God’s assemble together to WORSHIP God and passing Godly values from generation to by taking children to a Church to learn the things of God. Some don’t realise its for that so meet to find or make friends, mates, spouse, sell or others do not why know they attend Church. The priests or pastors, ministers, leaders, elders must abide by God’s instructions. Bible says Aaron’s sons died after an uncalled for sacrifice to God in Temple but a senior priest’s exclusive job. 2 Chronicles 27:1-2 says King Jotham good king as father Uzziah didn’t go to temple to worship God. King Uzziah went to temple every week so expected his son to continue practice. Many young people turn from parents’ training, church attendance to miss God’s blessings. Jotham refused to go to temple to receive God’s blessing by not letting go of the blame and shame of father’s leprosy he associated with God.1542288203393-729587537.jpg Felt it was God’s fault his father’s action in church ruined his life. A royal family like that will not turn up to hear people whisper of king’s leprosy. 2 Chronicles 27:1-2 passage on Jotham not in temple is to KNOW his place in Church. Wrong to abandon Church due to his anger by condemning God did not set very good example as a leader . Moses was leader punished by God so did not to enter the promised land despite serving God for years. Ananias and Sapphira members of Pentecost Church were dealt with by the Holy Spirit who revealed their deeds and God punished them. Exegesis shows interpretation of passage to understand context, histories of Uzziah and Jotham, 2 Chronicles 26-27; 2 Kings 15:1-6, 32-38. King Uzziah good king disobeyed LORD God in the temple offering of incense on altar only a priest had a right to do in 2 Chronicles 26:16-20. And Uzziah’s pride contaminated temple results in “leprosy until day he died” in 2 Chronicles 26:21. Lived in isolation as the Leviticus 13:46 required of leprosy. God’s punishment in passages of 2 Kings 5:27; 2 Chronicles 16:12; and 21:12-15 show leaders must be careful in handling HIS CHURCH. It is important to understand Temple is the LORD’s not to repeat a past leader’s mistakes. Uzziah proudly usurped the priest’s office but Jotham disobedient by refusing to attend the Temple too. God disciplines HIS Children but blesses the obedient who earns a special crown of God. Leaders or congregations need to learn from past mistakes not to repeat them. As unashamed workmen of God, to correctly interpret Scripture not to render them as literature to cut off Holy Spirit of God from texts. Koresh wanted to take over Moses’ leadership duties so ganged up with others to rebel against Moses. GOD punished them by opening ground to swallow them with families though a few survived. Saul performed sacrifice before Samuel arrived was told that to obey is better than sacrifice. For disobedience is like witchcraft rebellion against God’s instructions or commands in Bible is practising idolatry. 2 Timothy 2:15 commands all, “Present yourself to God approved workman who don’t need to be ashamed, correctly handling Word of TRUTH.” Some Church leaders stop the members from studying Bible telling them they are their Moses. Theological gymnastics to prove how highly learned they are confuses members. A desire to impress by preaching their fixed recipe formula ingredient Gospel causes chaos and disagreements. Turning the Church into factions of theology is unprofitable and unsuitable. Some pastor’s split their Church over traditions of men doctrines to suit ideology. Tyrant’s Church idolize men of God not God of men. High and an independent Church may challenge a leader in secret but also allows them to function because they appointed them leaders so as founder of a Church often above their correction.IMG-20181029-WA0002.jpg Beloved, I diligently write to you about our common salvation so it is necessary to write to you to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints. Certain men crept in unnoticed long ago marked for condemnation ungodly men who turn the grace of God into a license immorality and deny Jesus Christ, our only sovereign and Lord in Jude 3-4. So Jude means defend ‘The Faith’ paying attention to the body of Christ’s doctrine Christian TRUTH. The Christian doctrine is delivered to saints to keep secure and as John in Revelation 22:19 is instructed readers not add or take from the Word. Christians are to take the basic doctrine of the faith and live by example through agape love. Keeping good principles for Christian living as Paul in 2 Timothy  4:7 stated he remained faithful to this truth, of doctrinal core all the believers should adhere. Sound doctrine translated into a contemporary Christian life experience. God is known by a keen understanding of God’s Word, defending it through the personal relationship with God in Christ and the Holy Spirit. Not Greek, Hebrew, historical or systematic theology studied devoid of the practical relationship with God. The Church of God is one although difference in theology exists. Ephesians 4:4-6, says the Church is one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith one baptism; one Father God of all above all, through you all.” Theological debates of differences exist but is one faith in Lord God Almighty in Christ. Studies reflect theory but in truth lack true doctrine of love and faith. Jude’s sound doctrine of faith in practice and ethics not distorted by false teachers who turn Grace of God into license for immorality. These false teachers who change faith affect ethical practical life of believers. Essential faith doctrine of Jesus’ creeds and confession is in Matthew 16:13-17 when Jesus came to Caesarea Philippi He asked disciples, Who do men say I, the Son of Man I am?Some said, John the Baptist, Elijah and others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ But who do you say I am?’ Simon Peter answered and said, ‘You are the Christ the Son of the Living God.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, flesh and blood didn’t reveal this to you but My God Father in heaven. So Peter confessed true identity of Christ as basis of faith and doctrine of Christianity. In 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, the Gospel preached to you as received stand by it, be saved hold fast the word preached to you and you believed. Delivered to you is Word received that Christ died for our sins in Scriptures was buried and rose on third day is coming to resurrect dead soon. _20180716_231734.JPGPaul delivered, “the faith” received as basic content of the Gospel. 1 Timothy 3:16 on message of mystery of God is confession of creed of God manifested in the flesh and justified in Spirit is seen by angels, as preached among Gentiles to believe heard in the world is received into glory in heaven.” These confessions are bedrocks of Christian belief for their faith like Jude. Modern Church doctrine constitutes the faith Jude talks about as discussed. Christians believing in Jesus express an interest in the importance of sound doctrine to protect faith. Doctrine is crucial to Gospel Truth of person working for Christ. Theologian, pastors, members must be trained to defend the faith not just professional theologians. Christians biblically educated earnestly contend for faith not allow false teacher to do what they want. Jesus and other New Testament authors, warned of the coming of false teachers in Acts 20:29-30; 2 Corinthians 11, in Colossians 2:4-5; or 1Timothy 4:1; 6:20; and 2 Timothy 4:3; 2 Peter 2:1; 3:4. These texts say false teachers are coming and are currently present in Churches. Jude sounds alarm, “Church beware!” Contend earnestly for the faith as satan’s counterfeit actions of two thousand year’s Christianity history blurs truth of God. True Christians, well-grounded in Scripture spot counterfeit doctrine. Earnestly fight for Gospel as enemy is already defeated by Jesus so by intense devotion to God contend for faith. Doctrine taken seriously refutes error in Church. Doctrine interpretation of eschatology premillennialism, some post-tribulation believe Christians go to heaven before Great tribulation. Church pretribulations, believer’s rapture occur before great tribulation. Amillennial do interpret eschatology as postmillennials debates exists as advocates of legitimate interpretations are not heretic apostate false teachers. Because only God knows exact time huge differences exist in the eschatology but the deity of Christ Jesus, blood atonement, Second-coming, virgin birth are in the Bible. Doctrines of faith, Christian not to confuse with any issues unable to resolve by their differences. It to contend for the faith by wisdom and to discern those false teachers. In these cases Christians contend firmly in love to restore the false teacher if possible to regain faith so truly be converted. These messages of Jude is vital for twenty-first century Church to proclaim and defend God’s Truth of faith alone for salvation:

  1. The Scripture is God’s True Words.
  2. Adam and Eve lived Eden Garden
  3. The sin nature of human is saved
  4. The deity of Christ is absolute
  5. The virgin birth of Christ is real
  6. The sinless Christ’s perfection
  7. Substitution atonement of sin
  8. Jesus’ bodily resurrection is true
  9. Jesus second coming literally here
  10. Eternal, literal heaven and hell
  11. Perfect Church reflects love of God
  12. Perfect Church genuinely forgives
  13. Perfect Church love boundaries

ASTRONOMY’S STAR NAMES

stellarium-064I remember taking walks on clear nights with friends and family pointing out to the stars in the sky and telling me their names. I learnt about the various shapes and names of these stars and still fascinated to see as many as possible when there are no clouds blocking our view. Another thing is because I am excited to see these stars at times I literally dream watching these stars and pointing them out to people. orionsiriusA particular favourite star is regularly seen more than 11 times in my dreams. Orion is pointing in various directions in the sky on recent locations according to different seasons and ecliptics. I read more on NASA sites about astronomy and people interested in stars as hobby. Much is written about stars but feel the joy strolling and looking out to discover star patterns and laughing so fascinated with others I discuss it with. IMG_20180822_180625vector-constellations-mapAmateurs with powerful telescopes take amazing photos they discovered and is well-documented so seen by millions all over the world online. Also the teaching materials in schools and colleges and universities. Clouds sometimes prevent enjoying fresh air out and about under the stars pointing to the stars. There are 88 officially recognized constellations in the sky with astronomical patterns with a fascinating long history. 683-14249788682023615129Forty-eight of the constellations are known as ancient or originally named by Greeks and probably by Babylonians and other earlier people. After the 15th century, an age of  great discoveries and worldwide navigation the southernmost parts of the sky became known to man and charted. Across entire sky large gap filled in dim stars between them. Recent astronomy grouped the constellations in gaps after more powerful telescopes has revealed outer space.IMG_20180822_230144IMG_20180827_103837Jupiter_SouthNight-skyOrion-Taurus-Seven-Sisters-and-the-Moon-25th-March-2015-600w The evening sky, between bright star Capella and Big Dipper’s bowl are two examples of modern constellations. The first is “camel-leopard,” Camelopardalis, which in Latin means giraffe. The other Lynx, one of two animal constellations with identical Latin and English names is Phoenix. This celestial feline is dim hard to visualize by naked eye. The paintings of artists reveal indepth detail of constellations and featured paintings teach people the shapes and symbols of constellation. These makes it easier for younger ones to learn about stars and adults remember the Constellations of the Northern Sky.

Johannes Hevelius (1611-1687) a 17th century Renaissance man placed it in the sky. Aside from being astronomer, Hevelius was an artist, engraver, well-to-do man of affairs and a leading citizen of Danzig, Poland. Interestingly, the old astronomy books and sky charts, which depicted the constellations as allegorical drawings, placed the lucida (brightest star) of Lynx in the tuft of its tail. From these drawings it would seem that nearby Leo Minor, the Smaller Lion, is about to provoke a cat fight by biting Lynx’s tail.1bd2bf9118891897e6a4e0b0c9fef994Although the telescope was just coming into general use during Hevelius’ time, he openly rejected the new invention. In star atlas of 1690, he actually tucked a cartoon into a corner of one sky chart showing a cherub holding a card with the Latin motto “The naked eye is best.orion-1-768x480In creating Lynx, Hevelius chose a cat-like animal that possesses excellent eyesight. Lynx itself is a region devoid of bright stars, Hevelius openly admitted that you would have to have the eyes of a lynx to see it. A faint star pattern now no longer recognized is Felis, the Cat, a creation of 18th century Frenchman, Joseph Jerome Le Francais de Lalande (1732-1807).6_nohemi_springlookingsouth-59e68cc603f40200112fa4d4“I am fond of cats,” he said, explaining his choice. “I will let this figure scratch on the chart. The starry sky has worried me quite enough in my life so now I can have my joke with itAlthough this celestial feline does not exist today, cat fanciers will be consoled by that there are three other members of cat family  Leo (the Lion), Leo Minor (Smaller Lion) and Lynx well situated and close together in current evening sky. I’ve always wondered if Felis might later inspired the New Jersey cartoonist Otto Messmer to create curious, such a the mischievous and inventive and little character Felix, the Cat.virgo-constellation-41eec611-753c-41d2-a434-16c444c524d-resize-750Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille (1713-1762) is considered the pioneer in astronomy. Between 1751 and 1753, a hardworking French astronomer was stationed at the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, he catalogued positions of 9,766 southern stars in 11 months. Is best remembered for inventing 14 constellations he added to southern sky.Orion_12-March-2012_Nick-Lomb Although they are all still officially recognized today, they are composed mostly of very faint stars, which formed patterns that generally are dim and pointless. Unlike the larger, brighter constellations based on myths and legend, Lacaille chose to honour inanimate objects. NASA graphics offer an introduction to these constellations in Southern Hemisphere evening sky. Antlia Pneumatica, Air Pump, created by Lacaille around the year 1750.nighskychartjuly_2277768b Despite dim, faint stars officially recognized today as constellation. Its name is shortened to Antlia, the Pump. Above Pump is Felis the Cat no longer recognized. The Lacaille’s constellations include the Sculptor’s Chisels (Caela Sculptoris). Compasses (Circinus), a Chemical Furnace (Fornax Chemica) Pendulum Clock (Horologium) a Carpenter’s Square (Norma), Hadley’s Octant (Octans Hadleianus), aj Painter’s Easel (Equuleus Pictoris).IMG_20180823_000649Also Mariner’s Compass (Pyxis Nautica), and others Rhomboidal Net (Reticulum Rhomboidalis) Sculptor Workshop (Apparatus Sculptoris), the Microscope (Microscopium), Telescope (Telescopium), Table Mountain (Mons Mensae), was overlooked by Lacaille’s observatory. Heber D.

THE SUN SCORCHING EARTH

170228-solar-probe-plus-featureRevelation 16:8 says that the Sun will scorch earth through solar flares when the fourth angel pours out his bowl on the sun according to the Bible. As fourth angel pours out his vial on the sun the power was given to him to scorch men with fire. NASA’s mission is to solve this apocalyptic sun scorching the earth as fast moving Biblical wildfires take place all over the world. Over 14,000 fire fighters tackling Holy fires said blaze is 10% contained on Friday in California today. The fire, one of several across the state, destroyed more than 19,000 acres of forest north of San Diego. Thousands of people are evacuated for their safety as fire rummages property destroyed. Experts warn that worsening weather conditions, with thunderstorms in the forecasts, could lead to “extreme fire behaviours” over the next few days. The news reveals wildfires hard to put out destroy lives and property on a daily basis. US National Weather Service says smoke from weeks of the California wildfires, and others burning in the western US, has drifted over a vast area, affecting air quality “across the northern Rockies into western and central Canada and south over northern Plains.” Earth is getting hotter beyond normal sunshine causing changes to weather patterns. Scientists say earth is 1C away from Hothouse State that threatens the future of humanity’ when temperatures reach 2C above previous pre-industrial levels. Due to such concerns NASA’s Parker Solar Probe will explore sun’s atmosphere in their mission launch on Saturday. The agency’s first mission to the sun and outermost atmosphere, the corona. The Parkaer probe launches at 3:33 a.m. ET Saturday from Cape Canaveral, Florida, United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket one of the world’s most powerful rockets. The launch window will remain open for 65 minutes. If probe doesn’t launch on Saturday, the window for a successful launch doesn’t close until August 23. The probe is about the size of a car uses powerful rocket to escape Earth’s orbit to change direction and reach the sun. The launch window was chosen because the probe will rely on Venus to help it achieve an orbit around the sun. Six weeks after launch, the probe will encounter Venus’ gravity for the first time. It will be used to help slow probe, like pulling on a handbrake, to orient the probe so it’s on path to the sun. The probe will circle Sun 24 times in 7 years to relay images beamed to NASA. Experiments selected for Solar Probe Plus are specifically designed to solve two key questions of solar physics as to why is the sun’s outer atmosphere so much hotter than the sun’s visible surface and what propels the solar wind that affects Earth and our solar system, said Dick Fisher, director of NASA’s Heliophysics Division in Washington. IMG_20180811_013018“We’ve been struggling with all these questions for decades and this mission should provide those answers.” The spacecraft will approach the sun as its revolutionary carbon-composite heat shield withstands Sun’s temperatures exceeding 2550 degrees Fahrenheit and blasts of intense radiation. Spacecraft will have an up close and personal view of the sun enabling scientists to better understand, characterize and forecast radiation environment for future space explorers. NASA invited researchers in 2009 to submit science proposals. And Thirteen were reviewed by a panel of NASA and outside scientists. The total dollar amount for the five selected investigations is approximately $180 million for preliminary analysis, design, development and tests. The selected proposals are: Solar Wind Electrons Alphas and Protons Investigation: principal investigator, Justin C. Kasper, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Mass. This investigation will specifically count most abundant particles in the solar wind, electrons, protons and helium ions and measure their properties. The investigation is designed to catch some of the particles for direct analysis. Wide-field Imager: principal investigator, Russell Howard, Naval Research Laboratory Washington telescope will make 3-D images of sun’s corona, or atmosphere. The experiment will also provide 3-D images of solar wind and shocks as they approach and pass the spacecraft. This investigation complements instruments on spacecraft providing direct measurements imaging plasma and other instruments sample.

Fields Experiment: by the principal investigator, Stuart Bale, University of California Space Sciences Laboratory in Berkeley, Calif. This investigation will make direct measurements of electric and magnetic fields, radio emissions, and shock waves that course through sun’s atmospheric plasma. Experiment serves as giant dust detector, registering voltage signatures when specks of space dust hit the spacecraft’s antenna. While NASA’ sun’s mission takes place other Scientists are concerned about recent extreme Sun’s heatwaves affecting the earth’s rising temperatures.Scientists have said the planet will reach a "Hothouse" state if global temperatures reach 2C above pre-industrial levels

Scientists said the planet will reach a ‘Hothouse’ state when the temperatures reach 2C pre-industrial levels. Earth’s global temperature is 1C away from a climatic tipping point, threatens future of humanity, scientists warned. Experts added the planet is just decades away from events that would trigger runaway global warming. Threshold is reached when average global temperature is 2C higher like the pre-industrial times, research suggests. The findings show Earth’s temperature is already half way there. If the tipping point is reached it creates a “Hothouse Earth” state of uncontrollable climate change. The event would pose “severe risks for health, economies, political stability, and ultimately, habitability of the planet for humans,” as international scientists wrote in journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Firefighters and volunteers try to extinguish flames during a wildfire at the village of KinetaThe extreme weather this research has highlighted 10 feedback processes that were predicted to kick in around 2C of global warming. Feedback mechanism would act “like the rows of dominoes” spinning the world into state of climate change that will alter the landscape of the planet. In the long-term, Hothouse Earth climate will stabilise at a global average of 4C – 5C above pre-industrial levels, the study shows. If that happens it will render swathes of planet around equator uninhabitable, with sea levels up to 60 metres (197ft) higher than they are today threatening coastal cities. The research refers to “tipping elements” that could turn natural carbon storage systems or “sinks” into powerful greenhouse gas emitters. Professor Johan Rockstrom, a leading member of the team from University of Stockholm, Sweden, said: “These tipping elements potentially act like a row of dominoes.Part of the Wayoh Reservoir near Bolton has been left parched by the UK heatwave Part of Wayoh Reservoir near Bolton left parched by UK heatwave. “Once one is pushed over, it pushes Earth towards another. May be difficult or impossible to stop the whole row of dominoes from tumbling over. “Some places on Earth will become uninhabitable if Hothouse Earth becomes the reality.” The tipping point dangers identified are: thawing permafrost, release of methane trapped on the ocean floor and weakening land and ocean carbon sinks. Others include increased carbon dioxide production by ocean bacteria, Amazon rainforest die-back, coniferous forest die-back, reduced northern hemisphere snow cover, loss of Arctic summer sea ice, reduced Antarctic sea ice and melting polar ice sheets. The scientists wrote: “Our analysis suggests Earth system is approaching a planetary threshold that can lock in a continuing rapid pathway toward hotter conditions – Hothouse Earth. “This pathway can be propelled by strong, intrinsic, biogeophysical feedbacks very difficult to influence by human actions, a pathway not reversed, steered or substantially slowed.Experts have warned that swathes of the planet could be left uninhabitable Experts have warned swathes of the planet could be left uninhabitable. The Deep cuts in greenhouse gas emmission as well as concerted efforts to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere are required to avoid a Hothouse Earth state, the researchers added. They said this could be done both by preserving natural carbon sinks using technology. Dr Phil Williamson, climate researcher from the University of East Anglia, said: “In the context of the summer of 2018, this is definitely not case of crying wolf, raising a false alarm. The wolves are now in sight.” Chris Rapley, professor of climate science at University College London, said: “Previous research has shown that an increase in the mean global temperature of 11-12C makes more than half of land area currently occupied by humans uninhabitable.” A runaway heat to new uncontrollable hot state would represent an existential threat to humanity and the majority of existing species.”The scientists warning comes as the Met Office said Britain’s heatwave could continue for several months, with higher than the average temperatures likely until October. The Coastal cities across the world are affected because of rising sea levels caused by climate change. Increased sea levels occur because thermal expansion heats water because of extra heat and it melts polar ice causing floods. Parker_probe_1 Science and Bible agree that the Sun is scorching and destroying earth as seen globally. Some people think the sun will only scorch during Great Tribulation but tribulation is going on now since the time of Jesus on earth. Mankind’s own actions compounded and speeded up the Sun scorching earth before that great and terrible day of the LORD. The angel will be given power to scorch people with fire. Instead of catching soothing drops of rain, the people of the earth will burn as part of Judgments of Revelation 16. The Book of Revelation indicates that Earth will be adversely impacted by major solar flares from the sun in the future. Earth is completely scorched by X-rays radiations from the Sun. Trees burn and wildfires on earth increase carbon monooxide smoke that kills. Trees are being burnt or destroyed as predicted in the Bible. These things are  literal so people must be educated to know what God is saying or doing on earth. Giant solar flare scorching earth are hoped to be controlled by mysteries unfolded by mission to the Sun. Bible  prophecies talk about giant solar flares scorching earth and at some time in the future by angel’s his vial upon the sun as and power is given to him to scorch men with fire. Sun scorching earth is allowed by God to let people know the consequences of over-exploiting earth’s resources from centuries of reckless use damages natural resources and humans on earth. Earth will be restored as the New Earth and the New Heaven comes down to Jerusalem with God Dwelling among men on earth. Pray and ask God for HIS Mercy to save you in Jesus Name for eternal life.

LIGHTNING THUNDERSTORM

Lightning over Leighton BuzzardFrom God’s throne room in the heavens proceeds lightnings, thundering, voices. God is in control of clouds as scriptures relates in Revelation 4:3 in Bible. These lightning thunderstorms are all part of 7 thunders sealed by Daniel for these endtimes. Lightning, and the rumblings, thunderstorms occurred rapidly at a rate of thundering sounds unheard and unseen before. Lightnings and rumbling thunderstorms often precede presence of God. The loud sound echo announces warning to people to get ready, prepare to encounter God. Priests announce the time, place, moment to meet in advancd and to help sanctify themselves ready to welcome God’s Presence. They prepare to meet God to receive instructions, directions followed by the given special covenant agreement. Endtime lightenings and the thunderstorm is specifically preserved for the modern generations sealed until now. Thunderstorms occur in response to national issues God often uses to call attention with regard to their covenant agreement and remind all the nations. People remarked they had “never seen a storm quite like this” and said flashes were “stunning” as it happened in UK.The sky over Hayling Island, off the south coast of EnglandDramatic and purple sky photographed over Hayling Island, off the south coast of England near Portsmouth, in the UK as thunderstorms moved northwards across the mainland. Many people got out their cameras to photograph and video Saturday night’s electrical storm, called “utterly insane” and “like being under strobe light.” The thunderstorms and torrential rain swept across parts of southern Britain with lightning flashing across sky. About 15,000 to 20 thousand lightning strikes recorded in four hours on Saturday night, BBC Weather said. It was the purple sky that confounded the people above all having never seen the sky turn completly purple. Visual colour was intensified by a strong trumpetlike relentless thunderings unheard before. So intense people called the emergency lines to report the strange sounds heard from heaven. Thundering concentrated from one direction, clearly heard. Lightning across the sky at Swiss Farm touring and campingA caravan at a campsite in Henley-on-Thames when heavy rain and lightning storm struck. Lightning turned the sky purple over Leighton Buzzard and also in London. The BBC Weather presenter Tomasz Schafernaker called it “mother of all thunderstorms” as he watched it over London. “Oh boy! This is utterly insane” he said. “I’ve never seen a storm with such frequent lightning in my life I don’t think. Mostly sheet lightning and loud flashes spectacular.”Most people listen to weather forecasts for reports on weather and looking for scientific explanations taught in school.

Just as lightnings and rumbling thunderstorms precede God’s presence before meeting HIS people on the mountain or Elijah in cave of Adullam hidden, God again uses endtime sealed lightnings, thunderings to forewarn imminent return of Jesus in Rapture and later the Second Coming on earth. Loud lightnings and thunderings plus voices will accompany the trumpet sounds to herald coming of Jesus in the Rapture in clouds. Lightening and such thunderings will usher in Christ return to earth. So part of endtime signs from God warning all the people everywhere to repent according to Acts 17.

BE SAFE DURING THUNDERSTORMS

Thunderbolts and lighting can be very frightening. But don’t worry, there are things you can do to ensure that you, your family and pets stay safe until the storm passes. Stay indoors away from windows. Close all doors and windows, lock cat flaps to keep pets furry friends inside. Avoid bathing, showering switch off electrical appliances electrical storm can create power surges. After forecast, cancel outdoor activities, like golf and fishing trips as metal rods can conduct electricity.

If outdoors and cannot get inside ensure you won’t be at risk of lightning strikes. The first to do is find if there’s actually a risk. Wait to see lightning bolt the count seconds until you hear thunderclap if less than 30 seconds could be at risk. If you can, take shelter in car, windows closed. Sheds and isolated trees are not good covers. If swimming or in a boat, get to shore as quickly as possible, as water can conduct electricity.

It is ok to touch them – they won’t carry any electrical charge – so you can perform CPR if you know how. Once the storm has passed, give it half an hour or so before you venture out, as lightning can strike up to 10 miles away from the centre of the storm so a few bolts could still hit. The common saying “lightning never strikes the same place twice” is a myth. It can strike the same place twice and some experts believe it is highly likely.  Don’t be too worried as chances of being struck by lightning are about one in 300,000. Stay safe and turn any mirrors around and Jeep water on you.
