EXISTENCE OF JEHOVAH GOD

Ancient-of-Days-for-blog-postThroughout recorded history majority of humanity has seen existence of the Creator, Who intentionally brought the Universe in to being and sustains all life as an obvious truth. This truth does not stem from doctrine or belief system, but it is at the heart of all religions, and is underlying, indispensible principle of most spiritual practices. In Buddhism, misrepresented as an atheistic tradition, recognizes existence of guiding consciousness. As the Zen Buddhist master, Soyen Shaku, said, “Let me state that Buddhism is not atheistic as the term is ordinarily understood. It has certainly a God, the highest reality and truth, through which and in which this universe exists.” Scientific discoveries have only reinforced this realization, as it becomes even clearer the Universe was carefully designed. Prominent British mathematician Roger Penrose calculated the probably of random chance producing a Universe conducive to life at vastly less than scientifically accepted definition of “zero.” Even if one were to accept arguments from those who claim the Universe is not so “fine tuned,” we must rely on the mind-boggling, and empirically unproven, concept of multiple Universes, and then probability of random events leading to life only budges from staggeringly unimaginable to extraordinarily unlikely. And we are still left with such clearly designed, incredibly complex, mechanisms as DNA and the brain. This is not “God of Gaps” explanation, any more than looking under the hood of a car and deducing a designer is “Engineer of the Gaps.” To postulate a random, undirected, meaningless, existence in the face of unbelievable complexity and purpose of life is, in actuality, the much more irrational, and less logical, conclusion. This has been compared to proposing that a hurricane whipped through a junkyard and randomly assembled a jet plane. Late in his life the previously ardent atheist Anthony Flew famously noted, “What I think the DNA material has done is that it has shown, by almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce life, intelligence must have been involved in getting these extraordinarily diverse elements to work together.” For his honesty, courage and humility, Flew was mocked, and even labeled as senile, by many ardent atheists, who saw his statement as an unforgivable, heretical violation of their strict dogma that any hypothesis is acceptable except God.the_names_of_god_by_eagleknight-d2z4big

To make the scientific claim that one will “go where the evidence leads,” and yet consider such utterly unsupported hypotheses as multiple Universes, alien seeding (which, of course, still leaves the questions of where the aliens came from), mind memes (a total fantasy) and lightening strikes animated primordial chemical soup to create life (which has never been scientifically reproduced), while not even considering the obvious possibility of a deliberate Creator, is to be intellectually dishonest at best. What are the reasons for this irrational, and often very nasty, refusal by some to even consider the existence of a Creator as a viable hypothesis? I offer several possibilities:

A Childish Concept of God

For many, the belief in a Creator is rooted in a personal, direct encounter, in God experience, others often is pure consciousness, pure creation, endless love, animating energy of everything, or the Ultimate Reality. For those who experienced God Presence God concept is sophisticated not childish, based on immaturity, knowledge and innate gifts. Jehovah God is a man seated on throne in white cloak, long beard who made the world according to Isaiah in the Bible.” Richard Dawkins, for example, said, “We are all atheists about most of the gods societies have ever believed in; some of us just go one god further,” he showed a childish image of God. And he showed a lack of any experience in the spiritual realm. If he had any direct experience he would have known that all these societies were attempting to describe the mystery of Spirit in human archaic terms and idea of competing gods is a literalistic and immature one. Jehovah is the Most High God Above all gods made by man so must humbly recognize theology is an activity for which, frankly, he has little talent or understanding. Such a childish view of God is not limited to atheists but applies to religious folks who place dogma over personal experience, and for whom any digression from dogma is punished.maxresdefault

Tyranny of the Mind

The human mind is a powerful tool, but can also be a cruel tyrant. While it is skilled at storing and analyzing data, it cannot feel, and so there is much such as art, music, compassion, love, sex or Spirit that it cannot truly know. The mind, though, insists on analyzing these things, and tries to convince us that its analysis is the only way of knowing. It does this because it has little trust or no respect for anything not measurable and linear, and consequently it resists recognizing the other essential human facilities: needs of the body, the wisdom of emotions, and most especially, the guidance of Spirit. For those who have developed strong connections to body, emotions and Spirit, the mind can be managed and used properly. There are those who for a variety of reasons, have weak connections to body, emotions and Spirit. Their mind has free reign, dominating their lives and seeking to eliminate anything it cannot rationally comprehend. Then the mind eliminates anything that challenges its supremacy. For such a tyrannical mind, concept of a Creator God Ultimate Superior Being of intelligence that dwarfs theirs own is completely intolerable.

An Ego Strategy

As I’ve written in several previous blogs, the ego is the software implanted in us to ensure survival. Its job is to scan for threats and devise strategies to avoid pain and death. The ego knows only fear, and it will fiercely fight anything that threatens its survival. And nothing is more frightening to the ego than sharing or ceding control with another, because this feels like death. So the ego’s favorite strategy for protecting itself is the refusal to surrender to anything or anyone. It will even go so far as refusing to acknowledge a mistake, to apologize, to recognize superior abilities in others, to admit a weakness and, most pathetically, to ever express gratitude. I recently heard a man state that he “does not believe in gratitude,” but instead prefers the word “appreciation”: “I appreciate a delicious meal or a beautiful sunset, but I feel no need to say ‘thank you,’” he proudly proclaimed. This is the voice of ego. And to make the claim, as did the late Christopher Hitchens (who I deeply respect for his exposure of injustice), that there is no Creator/Designer because Hitchens did not approve of the way that eyes are designed, is also the pathetic voice of ego; it is the refusal to say “thank you” for the gift of life and miracle of sight. This is sad. Clearly one does not need to believe in God or follow religion to be wonderful, happy, caring, human being. What matters most is how we treat each other. But the refusal to even consider that a Creator may exist often accompanied by the adamant desire to “prove” otherwise and to ridicule those who do especially in the face of much blatant evidence, is an indication that a psychological mechanism is at work. Perhaps what is needed for such irrational position may not be more intellectual investigation, but psychoanalysis.5-proofs

5 PROOFS GOD EXISTS

Dramatic conversion by Astro Physicist one of the world’s leading Cosmologists, Dr Hugh Ross impacts academic world as Paul’s conversion to Christianity! One of the reasons cited by a Prof. Flew was “the evidence.” He admitted for a long time the growing problem of Evolution’s inability to explain how life began, or how anything began, led him to the inevitable conclusion it was inadequate answer in face of God evidence. DNA Genome code unraveled evidence for Design became “undeniable.” These two pieces of evidence 1. the existence of life demanding Life-Source 2. the scientific evidence of an extremely complex code in make-up of life DNA were enough for Prof. Flew to renounce atheism.The-Trustworthy-Argument-For-Gods-Existence-That-Youve-Probably-Never-Heard-Of-2

CAN WE PROVE GOD?

Some people feel that acceptance of God is entirely a matter of faith. But the Scriptures actually claim that it is the truth which is the basis for this faith (Rom. 10:17). Truth is only truth if it isobjective truth, that is, it is true for everyone regardless of time or circumstances. Thus, God is either true (and there can be objective proofs to support this), or He is not true and only subjective ‘truth’ can be offered for ‘proof’. Some ancient Philosophers have argued that the fact mankind can imagine there being a God is a proof that there must be one. While this argument does have some merit, it mainly has limitations. Taken to its natural application this means that ifanything can be imagined it must exist. Based on the nightmares I had as a three and four year old boy- I really hope this theory isn’t true or I’m not going to sleep well tonight! On the other hand, ‘beliefs’ and ‘truth’ are sometimes not entirely related. Tertullian once bragged that the main reason he so readily accepted Christianity was that it was fundamentally absurd. Perhaps he was alluding to 1Corinthians 1-2 which talks about human wisdom and divine wisdom being incompatible. Some people are so committed to their beliefs that despite the evidence of truth they refuse to change their beliefs. In this way we observe that what some atheists claim is their scientific basis for unbelief is nothing more than belief in opinions rather than evidence. Despite mass evidence to the contrary, many atheists refuse to accept origin of life is best explained by the obvious Designer Creator God. We have to applaud Prof. Flew for having the courage to consider and then accept the evidence. “Proof” though is measured and determined according to the type of claim. The type of proof needed to substantiate a claim involving chemistry is different to type of proof needed to substantiate a claim made about history. Proof in physiology is different to the type of proof needed for psychology. Proof in philosophy is different to the proof required for philology. Proof required for biology is different to the type of proof required for theology. To demand “hard” science: physics, biology, chemistry, astronomy proof tests an only acceptable means for testing soft science psychology, history, philosophy, literature is unreasonable. Thus, imposing natural proof tests on supernatural claims is an unreasonable measure and totally inadequate. But supernatural claims made have natural implications but God appears to many yet makes HIMSELF invisible to others. God created all we see in Romans 1:20 “proof” has universe as the “supporting evidence” looking at natural evidence to support God Supernatural reality.isaacnewton1-2x

THE EVIDENCE

Atheists Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, attack theism belief in God by attacking religious behaviour of those claiming to believe in God and abuse of religious rules to oppress people. The type of god religious fundamentalists use for abuse is not Jehovah GOD I AM. Omnipotent God Jehovah the Creator of uinverse and mankind  is a Unique Wonderful God. CS Lewis artfully makes the point in “magician’s nephew” several people confronted with evidence of God yet interpret evidence differently. Lewis describes Uncle Andrew’s direct encounter with Aslan who vehemently denied he was seeing and hearing as making himself look stupid. And Lewis, the former atheist himself, continues, “When it comes to proof for God, the evidence is cumulative acceptable proof.

Evidence for proofs for the existence of God invites atheists to reconsider claims there is noneThe following reasonable evidence proves indeed the Personal Omnipotent God described in Christian Bible.

PROOFS FOR EXISTENCE OF GOD…

1: Everything has a cause...

It is illogical to suggest something has no cause this is why theory of evolution becomes inadequate. It cannot explain how anything began let alone life. When we consider the evidence that there are things which exist it logically demands someone caused it to happen. Then rule of the universe is the solution origin of all life and things. This demands there must be someone eternal who exists so created all although do not understand this in order for it to be so. At this point some do not try to understand things because minds get in the way. But the opposite is the case perfectly legitimate to ponder things that minds find too big actually too inadequate to comprehend them. Faith and logical thinking are not imcompatible but realise they require discipline and exercise.eso_planetseverywhere

2: There is evidence for design

The unraveling of the Human Genome Code was announced to the world as the discovery of the language of the Creator by then President, Bill Clinton. Scientists discovered an extremely sophisticated genetic language necessary for even the simplest life forms to exist. To think this level of apparent design just happened randomly or by chance is mathematical equation of probability with more zeros than can type plus no word for numbers thousands of trillions! The universe displays an amazingly complex level of interdependency logically leads to the conclusion it was designed that way. So there are too many coincidences, just rightness for it to be random haphazard coincidence. The earth is “just the right” distance from Sun; it contains “just the right” mixture of chemicals and gases to sustain life; humans have “just right” ability to breath these gases; the human body has “just right” synergy of internal organs in order to function, and so on. Its important to note the Bible does not give a date for the commencement of creation of the universe, or the date for the creation of mankind. The universe may well be 10,000,000,000 years old, and mankind’s origins may well be as recent as 5,000 – 6,000 years ago. These numbers are in no way counter to the Biblical record, extremely compatible with the evidence.The Design Argument for the Existence of God

3: Intrinsic morality point of reference…

How do we know what “evil” is? How do we know what “good” is? These concept demand the existence of a standard to make such evaluations, understanding what these concepts mean. Each of us are born wit innate sense of morality. We each fundamentally know what is right and wrong through conscience. It is incredible to consider matter time, culture, geographic location, or people, the Moral Law has been universally acknowledged. This tends to confirm all of creation bears the finger-prints of the Creator who is fundamentally good and right. We each share knowledge of what is right and wrong not just because we are taught or conditioned to accept such values but because born with them.64c4b35ad8e698245862bbd9ce869f9a

4: Resurrection of Jesus Christ…

Skeptics dispute living history evidence that Jesus Christ rose again from death but do so perilously. There is enough evidence to validate it and it is the point all of history of Christ and Christianity rests. This means Christ and Christianity are true as the physical resurrection of Christ. Since Christ literally arose from the dead His History and teachings have have credence. Resurrection of Christ is a historic fact based on the over 500 eye-witness acvounts, the preparedness of all of those witnesses to defend their testimonies even at the point of losing their lives, the resultant baptism in the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues- still available today is most overwhelming piece of proof for the existence of God. In the Bible, in Philippians 2:9-11, God highly exalted Jesus and bestowed on Him the NAME above every name, so at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord, to the GLORY of God the Father. Jesus said when you see Him you see Father God  because He and God are one in Spirit, Love and Unity.

Against all Odds

5: Claims of Christ are experienced

Jesus Christ made claims about benefits of following Him. He offered “rest” for the weary, “nourishment” for hungry, “water” for the thirsty, “resurrection” for dead, “direction” for aimless, and “liberty” for the oppressed, “protection” for the vulnerable, “healing” for the hurting, and “salvation” for the lost. I was 15 years of age when I accepted Christ. Never have I ever regretted it. It has been a journey for me that has seen me grow and change. I have felt LORD guiding me. I can honestly say I have heard Him speak to me even though it hasn’t been audibly. He has answered my prayers so I now almost take it for granted my prayers will be answered. He has given my life direction, purpose that I otherwise would never have had. Today He extends to you the invitation to experience for yourself the claims which He has made. The evidence for existence of God is available for honest enquirers as these are honest answers. Those who acknowledge the reasonable evidence of all 5 points of God evidence accept they are no longer “atheist.” Like Professor Flew they bravely embrace the title “theist,” God believer without adopting any particular religious framework. So once this position is reached the next phase of journey is to answer question, “Is religion necessary or even helpful in discovering God?

IS CHRISTIAN GOD THE CREATOR AS EVIDENCED?

The scientific method is synonymous with methodological naturalism. This is the idea the only way knowledge can be apprehended is if it can be observed. But this is a fairly recent hijacking of what the scientific method means. If scientific method leads to certain deductions be it physical or metaphysical removing the restrictions which might holds back the truth if we employ the scientific method in examining any theories involving metaphysical claims. There is sufficient evidence to show the universe began and must have a beginning, include the dimensions of time and space as part of beginning. Therefore “Beginning Cause” outside of time and space is one of the central claims of Bible about God: He is eternal and dwells ‘above the heavens’ Hebrew 7:26. God is outside of time and space. Applying deductions of scientific method proofs “God” is ahead of time and space. Within time and space there is moral-evil, corruption and decay. The Creator is outside but within and HOLY, immutable, and impeccable. Concept of “God” fits perfectly with the concept of Jehovah portrayed in Christian Bible. So the simplest way to discover Identity of Creator-God is employ scientific method to Psalm 34:8 and Matthew 7:7.

HAVE CONFIDENCE IN GOD

291754852_640

Confidence in God is inbuilt in the brain to receive information, process, to take an action, store, apply or discard based on relevance. So scientists successfully have mapped parts of brain enhancing positive thinking to enable reinforcing good thoughts. When we think about ourselves positively, we are stimulating parts of our brains involved in reward, motivation, pleasure, says Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom. According to Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom a neuroscientist who has three daughters who also has a successful career at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. She has examined the role neuroscience plays in boosting confidence. This is particularly useful to many people who need exactly that, she writes as part of this year’s 100 Women Challenge. As primary carers or nurtures the mother’s confidence rubs on a child in the formative years of growing up. A happy mother is a happy child and happy family so is important to ensure the confidence of the mother is especially enhanced and supported. It takes a whole village to raise a child so the woman’s confidence is essential for the happiness of the spouse and vice versa. Confidence radiates in a person so is felt by those around that person so necessary to promote positive thinking. The world is so full of negative news it may seem impossible to think or to feel positive at any given moment. However confidence in God is the anchor of hope and joy in spite of adversity.images

confidence-in-the-lord2Confidence in God is unshaken by those circumstances of life having assurance God is still on the throne. Confidence is something many people want but do not know how to get. We need to embrace our abilities, our values and have a self-esteem to be successful. Without it, we are less likely to seek promotion, speak up in meetings and rise into leadership positions. This ultimately has enormous impact as various studies after studies shows having confident people at work in position of power correlates with the profitability collaborative environment and improved problem solving. So with some practice, we can use neuroscience to help to be more confident. The most influential or the inspirational names around the world every year are full of confidence. In 2017, challenging people to tackle the 4 biggest problems facing people today like glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces and sexism in sport. With the help of all hopefully can be coming up with many real-life solutions and so we want you to get involved with your ideas. 8aa3408d68e32286c91a4aeea3380fd6 CONFIDENCE-IN-GOD+copy

Thinking positively we know enhances self-confidence like all other personality traits reside within our brains. Alhough a large part of architecture of the brain is predetermined yet experiences and the choices we make continue to shape us. Over the course of life we acquire new knowledge, abilities by modulating the intricate and malleable connections between the cells and circuits in brains. We can utilise neuroscience to silence our negative inner voices and boost our confidence. These strategies work by engaging “value areas” of the brain. When we think about ourselves more positively, we are able to stimulate the parts of our brains that are involved in reward, motivation, and pleasure. One output of this pattern of neurological activation is we literally feel good when confident, we hold our heads high.Dr. Bloom with her three daughtersDr. Bloom with her three daughters

A healthy positive feeling is contagious so promotes those around us to be more engaged with us, whether its colleagues, our friends, or troops. The reinforcing reactions we see and feel in response to our confidence feedbacks to our brains to encourage more activity. So the first step is to push back against obstacles we know stand in our way being mindful of situations and deciding to be confident. Making complex decision is a multi-step process that taps into our emotions and engages many other parts of the brain.

Train your brain

brainWhen we have made the decision to be confident, we have to start training our brains. The Above brain scan details by DR. GYORGY BUZSAKI, NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE, shows the orange structure here as one of billions of neurons that is often stretching out to make connection (synapses) you see in yellow (more than 75,000). Those connections are what we are tweaking when we learn to choose confidence Just like mastering any other talent, gaining self-assurance requires repetition and time. Every time we do or learn something new, our brains adjust to store our new skill or bit of knowledge. This happens because parts of our brains are plastic and synapses that connect our brain cells, called the neurons, to each other can be modified, strengthened, and even newly created to store what we have acquired in this case confidence boost communication. From a scientific perspective people can blame both nature nurture for stacking the odds against them when it comes to valuing themselves. A biological reality is that women secrete different levels of hormones than men so react differently to the same world around us.brainThis brain scan shows “value areas” of the brain. DR PAUL GLIMCHER AND IFAT LEVY’s image caption reveal the areas of the brain in these images that are coloured to show they are activated “value areas” of the brain. Women tend to have a desire to please others, to seek acceptance, inclusion and avoid conflict. The way women respond to a stressful situations is different to men. While the men tend to take more risk when under pressure, the women look for the surer solutions and reach out to connect with others to manage stress. These genetic differences are compounded by the fact that we are socialized differently from the moment we are born and a pink hat is placed upon our heads.

Boys and girls

As we grow up, young women are not necessarily taught to exhibit any self-confidence, and if we do, we are often criticized for being “snobby” or “stuck-up” or “bitchy” words seldom associated with men. We hear damaging terms like “women’s intuition” suggesting that we aren’t making strategic analyses, but basing our decisions on some ethereal gut feeling but study after study shows women and men equally data driven. And the relentless emphasis placed on how we look erodes our self-image and for most of us, gets worse over time. As a mother of 3 young girls, this resonates every time daughters receive another impossibly-proportioned doll designed for dress up, caregiving, or primping.

Some women in a perceived masculine job are treated with ridicule finding it hard to convince men they are as good and competent as required to do the job even with their identical qualifications trained by exact same Institute. These bias comes in underhand tactics, jokes derogatory of performance and hurtful comments that can affect confidence. It is sometimes deliberately done hoping it drives away unwanted females from an all male exclusive zone. These can be do traumatic for women that it is very necessary to educate men on how to act, behave or talk to women. Especially the women of diversity background raised in serious environments teach respect of the emotional feeling others. Healthy interactions are required in a civilised  society that prides itself on equal rights or equal opportunities. Women are still facing hitting a glass ceiling if they also desire promotion by climbing a broken ladder. It is well-documented we way we raise girls and women has a lasting impact on way they view themselves and their abilities. Negative messages will engender self-doubt and lead us to underestimate ourselves. The result is not only a nearly universal feeling of imposter syndrome but fear of making mistakes, suspicion of underperforming unattainable quest for perfection. This is what is shutting down when making a decision to be more confident.confidence-blog-Jan1-1

Practice, practice, practice

It doesn’t matter what level of self-assurance you start at, the more time and effort you dedicate to practicing being more confident, the faster your brain will change and the faster you’ll master it. So it is important to remove ourselves from situations and people who make you feel bad because confidence largely comes from being in supportive environment. Environment comprises people around us and what we choose to focus our attention on. It is beneficial to concentrate on things that are empowering and to steer clear of exposure to images and contents that make us feel bad about ourselves. The way we choose to hold and to conduct ourselves is another factor. The mental simulations help envisioning ourselves finishing a race, speaking in public to a standing ovation, mastering job, getting a degree can all help build ourselves up. Just as a coach gives encouraging pep talk to the team before taking the field, we can give ourselves a confidence lift. Notably, these practices have an impact on our overall health and wellbeing, serving as buffer to stress, depression, and fostering good mental and physical health. When we choose confidence, we are rewiring our brains and we are able to change ourselves and our world, for the better. So how would you feel if you can become more confident, happier go influence people in a more confident manner. With God all things are possible.

CHRIST THE ORION HUNTER?

5015823Matthew 24 says the Sign of the Son of man will appear in the skies to warn people to be ready for rapture and second coming of Jesus. Jesus stood among 7 stars in Revelations to warn the 7 churches and mankind. Jesus in last days as ORION CONSTELLATION star Betelgeuse is the Brightest Star in constellation Orion called Alpha Orionis. God the Alpha and Omega uses symbols, signs and wonders seen in Jesus Christ. Revelation 4:11 says “Worthy are you, our LORD and God, to receive GLORY, HONOUR and POWER, for you created all things and by your will they exist as created.” Fascinating information shows Orion constellation is the most prominent in night-time sky in winter in the northern or southern latitude seen on clear night. Naked eye can see about 4000 stars in each hemisphere of the sky. Millions of the most up-to-date astronomy catalogues show there are at least few billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy. Of all infinite number of stars in the whole universe, at least a 100 billion billion in the observable universe and about 100 billion billion galaxies Jesus Christ Star stands out clearly seen on the globe revealing God to humans! So this article features the most prominent star red giant star called Betelgeuse seen in pictures or graphic images on the right shoulder of a male figure said to represent the Messianic constellation Orion, which represents Yahshua our Messiah as the Prince of princes who conquered death and the devil for us. His supremacy over evil is seen in the star marking his left foot named Rigel, which is crushing the head of serpent beneath his feet. Revelations 19:15-20 says Coming out of His mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron sceptre and He treads the winepress of the fury of the WRATH of God ALMIGHTY. 16 On His robe and on His thigh this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.” 19 Then I saw the beast and kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20 The beast was captured, and with it false prophet who performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he deluded those who received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur of hell by Jesus.

Jesus the Reaper, Bridegroom, KING of Kings with sickle in Hand Gospel Truth unfolding Word of God in world coming to reap harvest with sickle and thrash winepress of blood. He that Sits on the cloud will thrust His sickle on earth and the earth is reaped says Revelations 14 : 15. Jesus’ story of wheat and tares about endtime harvest of believers as wheat and unbelievers as tares will happen. It is exposition of Revelation of Jesus as a good encouragement to believers to stay focused in God in Christ but warns the tares of Wrath of God and Jesus. He that sits on the cloud puts His sickle on earth in the harvest so the​ wheat is separated from tares and saved but tares burnt like chaff in hellfire. The symbol depicts Jesus like Orion hunter’s sword that will thrash evil and burn all enemies in hell. Betelgeuse is a massive star that is red in color supposedly because it may be nearing the end of its life span. Yet allegorically, its red colour suggests that it symbolizes a blood sacrifice, and that is what our Messiah Yahshua was for us! The right shoulder of man signifies strengths or triumphs, while his left shoulder allegorically is tied to his weaknesses or sorrows. This is also true of the right and left hands. In Orion, the right shoulder and hand signify “The Coming Branch”. This is an allusion to Yahshua our Messiah as the Righteous Branch out of Seth and Jesse. The star Betelgeuse is tied to star called Spica or “The Branch” in the sign Virgo Virgin symbol for Yahshua’s Jewish mother Miriam and His grafted-in Gentile Bride.226646a4c4e14e44290c4e6d4db473e8SevenStarsOrionThe top he left shoulder of Orion has the bright star called “Bellatrix” in Latin the feminine form verb of noun “Bellator” meaning “Warrior.“ Semitic languages, interpret this star to mean “quickly coming.” So, taking both meanings into consideration, Orion ‘Warrior Coming Quickly’ as said in Scripture “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have that no one may take your crown.” Revelation 3:11 “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7 “behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to works.” Revelation 22:12 “He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly. Amen. So come, Lord Jesus Adonai Yahshua says Revelation 22:20. the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-15-638

the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-28-638

God’s Masterplan of salvation is through Jesus Christ, for God so Loves the world HE gave HIS Only begotten Son Jesus to save sinners. So perfectly fitting Christ’s role as the Saviour, Warrior coming to judge everyone by their works and to slay the wicked one on that day soon as associated with left shoulder denoting sorrow. This shows that Yahshua will take no joy in killing the wicked but will do so in sorrow as expression of God’s righteous anger and perfect judgment. And Yahshua extends God’s mercy to those who love God and His Son, the wicked who reject Christ perish forever in Hell, and Yahshua will be their judge and executioner. This is important for all to accept Yahshua as the Messiah, humble themselves before God ask for forgiveness live righteously. Centuries have passed since the Bible has warned mankind of the imminent coming of Jesus in a moment of Rapture and then great tribulations intensifies. Jesus said as it was in the days of Noah and flood and days of Sodom and Gomorrah so His Coming saves some but will destroy wicked who reject God in Jesus Name.  betelgeuse-orion_text

The blessings of God depends on how you view your place in the cosmos and your purpose of your life. Vacillation between God’s Viewpoint and secular opinions influence spiritual maturity or growth. So the ability to see the blessing at times disguised means studying the word of God to understand the Bible better. Remember understanding God means an eternal gift of true joy in Christ our hope of Glory. Without blessing of God life is worse than God planned for mankind to live in better times arriving soon when Rapture happens. Another interesting figure in Orion Constellation is the Horsehead Nebula. It is just south of Al Nitak, the brightest star in Orion’s Belt. Al Nitak means “The Wounded One,” or “The Slain One” in Arabic. Al Nitak connected to Great Pyramid at Giza by Jesus living in Egypt as a symbol for Yahshua as our atonement sacrifice and for redeemed by His shed blood as the Bride of Christ, and those who dwell in New Jerusalem.wpid-orion-nile-pyramids-milky-way

m42_03Due to these associations the Horsehead Nebula could be envisioned connected to the constellation Pegasus near Pisces as the white horse Yahshua will ride when He returns with His holy angels and His saints during the Battle of Armageddon. The Horsehead Nebula is a small part of larger nebula primarily reddish in colour suggests the coming judgment of the wicked, where blood of those slain will form a lake-sized pool 1600 furlongs = 200 miles and reach up to the height of horse’s bridle, as it says in Revelation 14:20: “And the winepress was trampled outside the city and blood came out of winepress, up to horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.” Those slain will pile high to the height of the horse for beasts from the sea and birds of prey to feast on in Revelation 19:15. To share more truth about beautiful constellation excerpt from book The Language of God in Universe is available as a paperback, PDF E-Book, or Kindle book at POEM Web Site and at Amazon.com. This entire 400-page book teaches about the meaning of the Gospel in the Stars, and this small portion talks about the lovely meaning of Orion and its principal stars On page 93: “The star on Orion’s right shoulder named Betelgeuse is one of the most massive star in galaxy. Considered 700 times larger than earth’s Sun name Betelgeuse means The Branch Coming.0e193d8e865ef93d57df4a1cacae9c77--winter-solstice-christmas-time

Many proponents of Gospel in the Stars believe star Betelgeuse represents the Righteous Branch coming through the line of Seth as Yahshua. The Betelgeuse in Orion constellation represents our Saviour as our resurrected Redeemer. The name “Orion” means “He who comes forth as light.” This appellation can apply to Christ’s role as the Messiah. Another star in Orion’s foot marks the constellation as a representation of the Messiah to Come Desired of All Nations (Haggai 2:7). This star, “Rigel,” means “The Foot That Crushes.” In the heavens the constellation of Orion is seen as a warrior with one foot over the head of the serpent represented by constellation erroneously called Lepus, the Hare. As the “Seed of the Woman” designated by Virgo, Yahshua finally fatally crushed the head of the Serpent called satan when He died for our sins and rose from the dead. When He comes as a conquering King, Yahshua will crush the Serpent satan forever.orion_slide151

The idea Orion represents Yahshua as a conquering King dressed in trappings of warrior exemplifies Orion’s place in the Mazzaroth as the first decan of Taurus. The Mazzaroth or Mazarot מַזָּרוֹת, LXX μαζουρωθ The word’s precise meaning is uncertain but in context astronomical constellations interprete it as a term for the zodiac or the constellations thereof in Job 38:31-32. A similar word mazalot (מַּזָּלוֹת) in 2 Kings 23:3-5 may be related as Zodiac Taurus Bull represents raging bull charging forward to crush wicked during the outpouring of God’s Wrath in Tribulation. Orion represents the Messiah Yahshua as the Conquering King of kings and Lord of lords spoken of in Revelation 17:14 and 19:16. And so Rapture God’s Resurrection of the dead preceding the time of trouble of great tribulation. Second Resurrection is the raising up of saints and martyrs for their faith occurring during Tribulation before Yahshua returns in His Glory. In “The Language of God in Prophecy” the details look at the Rapture theory and the idea of the First Resurrection.the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-77-638 the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-46-638The mystery of God supercedes all other constellation theory of Orion abounding everywhere, perhaps because it appears easily seen by the naked eye in the sky above the Earth’s equator, visible from all inhabited places in the world. When Orion rises others always sets so these constellations are never in the sky at the same time! This is symbolic of the fact that light cannot coexist with side by side with darkness, holiness cannot abide in the presence of evil. The Orion constellation was once associated with Nimrod, the king of first apostate world empire after the Great Flood. This may be reason Orion’s image changed from conquering warrior king into a mighty hunter alluded to as “Nimrod, a mighty hunter before Yahweh” in Genesis 10:9. Nimrod saw himself as Orion as just one of long line of the antiChrist vying for power and glory promised to the true Messiah as depicted in Orion in Bible.Position_Alpha_Ori

constellationsAs mentioned under the preceding description of Taurus, Orion is clearly connected to the patriarch Joseph as “the prince among his brothers” in Genesis 49:26. The details of Joseph’s life and character shown to prefigure Christ’s own in many ways. In addition, Gary Hazle via a revelation given to him by God, on the hourglass shape of Orion may depict cup or a chalice Christ drank from at the Last Supper as a Passover meal. In addition, the star forming the horns of Taurus, if extended down to the V-shaped star cluster called Hyades in Taurus’ face depicts a V-shaped tear form when a loaf of unleavened bread is torn apart at Passover! Since Taurus is the sign that shows God’s blessings on the Gentiles and the Tribe of Joseph, it is fitting it clearly show how Gentiles, and the Tribe of Joseph are to be blessed by God! Orion shows strength of blessings to be poured out on Gentile dependant on their faithfulness to New Covenant sealed with Christ’s own precious body and blood. Orion is the triumphant, powerful sign showing the power of God to save Gentiles and the whole world, and offer them salvation from sin, death, and schemes of devil. orionscan2stars4ConstellationsAndStars

Coordinates of Orion NebulaImage titled Find the Orion Nebula Step 10Nebula’s right ascension.The right ascension of a celestial object is the astronomical equivalent of longitude, and measures the distance eastward from the celestial equator towards the vernal equinox (the point at which the celestial equator and ecliptic intersect in spring in northern hemisphere. The Orion Nebula’s right ascension is 5 hours. In other words, the nebula will cross the celestial meridian (the point directly above you or an observer) five hours after the vernal equinox.Image titled Find the Orion Nebula Step 11Nebula’s declination.Declination is an astronomical equivalent to latitude, and provides guidance toward a point on the celestial sphere (the visible “sphere” of stars and astronomical objects surrounding the earth). Declination is measured relative to celestial equator (the line you’d get if the equator were projected out into space). The Orion Nebula’s declination is five degrees. In other words, it lies along a plane five degrees above celestial equator. Hazle’s revelation concerns Orion representing patriarch Joseph depicting a cup Joseph drank from and divined God’s Will in Genesis 44:5,15). Some people suggest Joseph sinned when he used the cup by foretelling the future, the cup may have been used like the water, or wine-filled glasses or bowls used by Magi to gaze at the stars to discern the heavenly signs, wonders showing God’s unchanging Will. Though Orion depicts Joseph, it is ultimately pictures Yahshua our Risen Saviour and Conquering King coming in power at the end of Great Tribulation. And Orion compliments the meaning of Taurus as God’s Grace to the Gentiles and protection from pouring out of God’s Wrath by His ministering angels during the Great Tribulation.

oriOrion’s Mathematical Numbers

This blog came about because a dream vision I had revealed Orion to me in the night sky with mathematical numbers. I said, let me take a paper to write these numbers down because it is too many to remember. Then I woke up, so as usual I searched and studied the Scriptures for Bible confirmation of this vision. This is found in Amos where Orion is written in the text in the Bible. I researched the astronomy documents on Orion and the scientific information agrees with God’s words in the Bible. Scientific astronomy locates Orion as follows a mathematical calculation depicted by the Englishman Flamsteed designation. Orion has the combination numbers of constellation names allocated uniquely identifying Orion often seen by the most naked eye stars in modern constellations visible from southern EnglandFlamsteed’s designations for stars is similar to the Bayer designations, except that they use numbers instead of Greek and Roman letters. Each star is assigned a number and Latin genitive of the constellation it lies in 88 modern constellations for list of constellations and genitive forms of names. Flamsteed designations were assigned to 2554 stars. These numbers originally assigned in order of their increasing right ascension within each constellation, but effects of precession  is slightly out-of-order in some places.orion (1)AoD-rNdCEAELv1N08f0301854080980c20484b3e38a4bc0

This method of designating stars first appeared in a preliminary version of John Flamsteed‘s Historia Coelestis Britannica published by Edmond Halley and Isaac Newton in 1712 without Flamsteed’s approval. The final version of Flamsteed’s catalogue published in 1725 after his death omitted numerical designations altogether. The numbers in use now by French astronomer Joseph Jérôme de Lalande appeared in his 1783 almanac, Éphémérides des mouvemens célestes contained a revised edition of Flamsteed’s catalogue. Lalande noted in his Introduction he got the idea from that unofficial 1712 edition. Flamsteed designations gained popularity in the eighteenth century, and now commonly used when no Bayer designation exists. Where a Bayer designation, with Greek letter exists for a star, it is usually used in preference to Flamsteed designation. Flamsteed numbers generally preferred to Bayer designations with the Roman letters. Well-known stars referred to by Flamsteed numbers include 51 Pegasi, and 61 Cygni. Flamsteed designations are often used instead of the Bayer designation if latter contains the extra attached number like “55 Cancri” is more common than a “Rho-1 Cancri.”Orion-constellation-map

Right ascension (abbreviated RA; symbol α) is the angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox to the hour circle of the point in question.[1] When combined with declination, these astronomical coordinates specify the direction of a point on celestial sphere in the equatorial coordinate system.

Each fine horizontal line marks 1° of declination, and each vertical line marks 4 minutes of R.A. North is up and east is left on both maps. S&T / Craig Michael Utter.

Right ascension and declination as seen on the inside of the celestial sphere. The primary direction of the system is the vernal equinox, the ascending node of the ecliptic (red) on the celestial equator(blue). Right ascension is measured eastward along the celestial equator from the primary direction. An old term, right ascension (Latin, ascensio recta[2]) refers to the ascension, or the point on the celestial equator which rises with any celestial object, as seen from the Earth‘sequator, where the celestial equator intersects the horizon at a right angle. It is contrasted with oblique ascension, the point on the celestial equator which rises with a celestial object as seen from almost anywhere else on Earth, where the celestial equator intersects the horizon at an oblique angle.

Explanation

Right ascension (blue) and declination (green) as seen from outside celestial sphere. Article: Equatorial coordinate system. Right Ascension is the celestial equivalent of terrestrial longitude. Both Right Ascension and longitude measure an angle from a primary direction (a zero point) on an equator. Right Ascension is measured from the vernal equinox or the First Point of Aries, which is the place on celestial sphere where the Sun crosses the celestial equator from south to north at March equinox and is currently located in the constellation Pisces. Right Ascension is measured continuously infull circle from equinox towards the east. Units of angular measure could have been chosen for right ascension, but it is measured in hours (h), minutes (m), and seconds (s), with 24h being equivalent to full circle. Astronomers chose this unit to measure the right ascension because they measure star’s location by timing its passage through the highest point in the sky as the Earth rotates. The highest point in the sky, called meridian, is the projection of a longitude line onto celestial sphere. Since a complete circle contains 24h of right ascension or 360° (degrees of arc), 124 of a circle is measured as 1h of right ascension, or 15°; 1(24×60) of a circle is measured as 1m of right ascension, or 15 minutes of arc (also written as 15′); and 1(24×60×60) of a circle contains 1s of right ascension, or 15 seconds of arc (also written as 15″). A full circle, measured in right-ascension units, contains24 × 60 × 60 = 86 400s, or 24 × 60 = 1 440m, or 24See also: Hour angle

Because right ascensions are measured in hours of rotation of the Earth they can be used to time positions of objects in the sky. For example, if a star with RA = 01h 30m00s is on meridian, a star with RA = 20h 00m 00s is on meridian 18.5 sidereal hours later. Sidereal hour angle, used in celestial navigation, is similar to right ascension, but increases westward rather than eastward. Usually measured in degrees (°), it complements of right ascension with respect to 24h. It is important not to confuse the sidereal hour angle with astronomical concept of hour angle, which measures angular distance of an object westward from the local meridian.

Above all, God the Creator Patent owner of heaven, earth, the firmament and the universe takes centre stage by labelling HIS UNIVERSE with HIS NAME and SON Jesus Name. People name stars created by God without HIS acknowledgment so God reveals His Mysteries to those who love HIM and study HIS words. Jesus the Firstborn Son of creation is the RIGHT Heir with joint heirs of God’s universe. And so God is deconstructing manmade structures that refuse to bow to Kiss the SON of God or perish. As Psalm 2:12 says Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish from the earth. Love Jesus, accept anf embrace Jesus or His Wrath and anger will be unleashed during the great Tribulation. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him for they shall not perish but have eternal life. God is regenerating the new earth after it is destroyed. Meridian location of Sky’s highest point connects directly to Most High God on earth in Christ Jesus the Messiah Conquering Warrior to execute the wrath of God and wrath of Christ in tribulation. It is amazing the Bible says in the last days God WILL pour His Spirit upon all flesh and old men and women and the young people will dream dreams and see visions. The Orion’s calculated by the location in space-time as birthplace of Jesus was identified by Maggi 3 kings through stars. So God’s Hour Glass is ticking towards the warnings given mankind for centuries to repent to seek and accept GOD ALMIGHTY as the One True Living God. Those who listen and do so by accepting and receiving Jesus Christ are saved into ETERNAL Life. So those who reject Jesus’ free salvation Sacrifice to all sadly will perish. God is reaching out to all to take His messages seriously to be delivered and saved. Researching the vision seen in dream amazed me to find the exact numbers documented as recorded in astrometry. God is really Loving and Merciful so wants all people to be saved in Jesus Name. Jesus said He is Coming soon right at the door to rescue and save His believers. It is interesting Right Ascension reminds us of His Ascension into heaven twice after resurrection and His numerous other ascensions back and forth into heaven as seen and repoted by many people on earth. Jesus is seated on the Right Hand of God ready to Come in the clouds for Rapture of all His believers. Be sure to confess and profess the Name of Jesus, the Only Way to God and be saved. On the 6th of November God showed me the Orion again this time covered in blood with a child standing closeby. So God is warning mankind about the time Jesus will return as Conquering Warrior with his garments soaked in Blood. The book of Revelations talks about Jesus on a white horse with His garments soaked in Blood in the Bible. Jesus, Conquering Warrior will return with blood on His garments riding a white horse during second coming to kill and destroy His enemies accompanied by His saints and angels. Some say the blood represents a reminder of Jesus Sacrifice as the Lamb of God authorised to take vengeance by His Wrath. Others think it is symbolic of blood of His enemies to be splattered by Jesus. Only Jesus knows what His blood on His garments represents and could be both interpretations.   The Orion hunter represents Jesus about to come back when God Decides. When we see blood on the earth or on someone’s clothes, it suggests great injury or death. Blood on the earth therefore marked the spot of either a great battle, a death or a deep wounding. As such it was a marker, a memorial or sign of the act. So this aspect of blood in our dreams must be remembered. So Jesus Messiah the greatest megasuperstar superpower is returning in second coming to judge the world. This is a very serious, urgent warning to be taken extremely seriously by all who read this post to ensure they listen and make the right choice and the decision to please God in Jesus Name. God speaks using metaphoric images to expand meaning of messages to people. God repeats some particular dreams for emphasis to reinforce warning message to mankind before it is too late. This is definitely one of such messages used and repeated twice so far in less than 21 days of exact same dream. God means business so take God very seriously and be saved in Christ Messiah.

GOD’SHOLYCITY MOUNTZION

Jerusalem-in-the-time-if-Jesus

Jerusalem at the time of Jesus and temple is different from modern times. Acts 15:16 says God and Messiah Yeshua will build a temple on Temple Mount Zion. God intervenes to choose a people for HIS NAME from Gentiles. 15 The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written: 16 “After this Jesus will Return and rebuild David’s fallen tent, Its ruins Jesus will Rebuild and Restore Temple. 17 The rest of mankind will seek the LORD God Yahweh, even all Gentiles who bear MY NAME, says the LORD God Yahweh, WHO does these things’ 18known from long ago. Joel 2:1 says blow the Temple in Mount Zion and announce the coming days of the LORD Yahweh. And Yeshua Rebuilds Mount Zion is significant spiritually as He predicted fall of Temple in His days destroyed, no stone was left standing of that particular Temple. Jesus is Absolutely correct because specific Temple of His day was destroyed.

Tabernacles constructed by Moses, Bezalel and Oholiab in the wilderness Isaiah 33:20 were brought to Mount Zion as a centre of worship of YAHWEH before the days of Jesus, King David and Solomon’s Temples among the many other previously destroyed Temples. Isaiah 33:20. Look upon Zion, the City of our solemn gatherings; thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a peaceful habitation, a tent that shall not be removed, the stakes whereof shall never be plucked up, neither shall any of the cords be broken. Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the end of days, that mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established at top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 Many peoples shall go and say: ‘Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob and He will teach us His ways and walk in His paths.’ Out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 50:4 In those days and in that time says the LORD, the children of Israel shall come with their children and Judah together; they shall go on their way weeping, and shall seek the Lord their God. 5 They shall inquire concerning Zion with joy on their faces saying ‘Come and join yourselves to the LORD in everlasting Covenant that shall not be forgotten.’ 6 My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting-place. The real Chabod Shekinah Glory of the LORD Yahweh will reappear again on Mount Zion because God Chooses to do so. Isaiah 4:5 And the Lord will create over the whole habitation of mount Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and shining of flaming fire by night for all the Glory shall be canopy. 6 There shall be a pavilion for a shadow in the day-time from the heat, and for a refuge and for a covert from storm and from rain.

Another significant event in history of Israel is conquest of Jericho led by Joshua. The walls of Jericho falling down, recorded in Joshua 6:1-27 by God’s miracle power. Destruction of Jericho regains their inheritance on return from captivity in Egypt. The people of Israel crossed the Jordan River into the land of Canaan in Joshua 3:14 -17 back to their land of milk and honey God promised Abraham over 500 years in Deuteronomy 6:3, 32:49. After forty years in wilderness desert of Sinai the people of Israel arrived on eastern banks of the Jordan. To take land of Canaan back they started from the city of Jericho in Joshua 6:1 from the walled city. Excavations reveal fortifications featured a stone wall 11 feet high and 14 feet wide with smooth stone slope, angling upward at 35 degrees for 35 feet, joined to massive stone high walls. It was virtually impregnable so ancient warfare used assault or surrounded city and people starved into submission. Invaders weakened the stone walls with fire, tunneling, heap up mountain of earth to serve as a ramp methods of assault took weeks or months, and the attacking force usually suffered heavy losses. Strategy used to conquer city of Jericho was unique as laid out by God for people to march silently around Jericho six days on seventh day march seven day with a loud shout. When people shouted, the walls collapsed and Israel won the victory. God restored the city of Jericho to them im Joshua 6:2, 16. Ancient_Jerusalem_Map-01People of God by faith, followed the commands of God so walls of Jericho fell down in Joshua 6:20. In Isaiah 4:5, Chabod or Glory of the LORD, Cloud or pillars of smoke and fire in wilderness shows Presence of God to reassure the children of Israel on their way to Canaan Land out of Egypt. The issue of location is now a major issue and conflict. Yet like any other old cities rebuilt or renamed over the centuries, there is bound to be mix ups of vital details and information lost in translation. Isaiah 34:8 For the Lord hath a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the controversy of Zion. So Isaiah 66:1 says, Thus saith the Lord: the heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool; where is the house that ye may build unto Me? And where is the place that may be My resting-place? Zechariah 8:2 ‘Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I am jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I am jealous for her with great fury. 3 Thus saith the LORD: I return to Zion, and will Dwell in the midst of Jerusalem and Jerusalem shall be called City of Truth Holy mountain of LORD of hostsmountzionmap

Isaiah 28:11 For with stammering lips and with a strange tongue shall it be spoken to this people; 12 To whom it was said: ‘This is the rest, give ye rest to the weary; and this is the refreshing’; yet they would not hear. Jeremiah 6:16 Thus saith the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the ancient paths, which is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk in it. Isaiah 27:12 In that day the LORD will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered up one by one. 13 That day a Great Trumpet will Sound and those perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship LORD on Holy mountain in Jerusalem.

God Chose Zion HIS desired Habitation in Scripture states many times Zion is correct Temple location. The following passages make clear mention of this and many more verses apart from these cited here can be examined to maintain the same point. The first Psalm of King David as follows says: Psalm 132:1, LORD, remember David and all his sufferings. 2 He swore an oath to the LORD, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3 “I will not enter my house or go to my bed, 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.” 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar. 7 Let us go to HIS Dwelling place, let us worship at HIS footstool saying, 8 Arise, LORD and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might clothe your priests your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.'” 10 For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one. The whole City of Jerusalem is called tha City of David not just his palace, courtyards and garden grounds or altar built in a Tent for Yahweh. During conquest of Jebusite stronghold Zion now called Jerusalem, Joab the Chief Captain expanded City of David upwards to Millo near rest of the city. And Chief Captain built and repaired  ruins damaged by conquerors who took people into exiles. Solomon built his Temple, palaces, gardens on expanded to the Temple Mount area in the City of David.

11 The LORD Swore Oath to David, a sure Oath HE will not revoke: “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne. 12 If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever.” 13 For the LORD has CHOSEN Zion, HE has desired it for his dwelling, saying, 14 This is My Resting place forever and ever; here I will Sit Enthroned for I desire it.15 I will bless her with abundant provisions her poor I will satisfy with food.16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her faithful people will ever sing for joy. 17 Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown. Isaiah 24:23, The moon shall be confounded and sun ashamed for the LORD of hosts will Reign in Mount Zion and Jerusalem, before HIS elders shall be Glory. Psalm 48:2, Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised in the City of our God, His Holy mountain, 3 Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth is Mount Zion the uttermost parts of the north, the City of the Great KING. God in HIS palaces made Himself known as a stronghold. Psalm 87:1 A Psalm of the sons of Korah sang: His foundation is in Holy mountain.2 The LORD loves gates of Zion more than all dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are spoken of City of God. zion_fleming

Obadiah 1:17, In Mount Zion there shall be those that escape, and it shall be Holy; and the house of Jacob Israel shall possess their possessions. Joel 3:5, And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as the LORD said among remnant whom the Lord shall call. Joel 4:16 And the Lord shall roar from Zion,and utter His voice from Jerusalem and the heavens and earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge unto His people, and a stronghold to the children of Israel. 17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain; then shall Jerusalem be Holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. 18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down sweet wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the brooks of Judah shall flow with waters; and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim. 19Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. 20 But Judah shall be inhabited for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21And I will hold innocent their blood that I have not held as innocent, the LORD Dwells in Zion.

Psalm 87:2-3 says, The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are said of the City of God.”  Zion is synonymous with city of God, and it is a place that God loves. Zion is Jerusalem. Mount Zion is the high hill on which David built a citadel. It is on the southeast side of the city. The word Zion occurs over 150 times in the Bible. It essentially means “fortification” and has the idea of being “raised up” as a “monument.” Zion is described both as the city of David and the city of God. As the Bible progresses, the word Zion expands in in spiritual meaning so Zion and Jerusalem refer to the same City, indicating physical and spiritual location of the HOLY City. The word Zion means ‘marked’ as ‘distinctive’ with inner qualities distinguishing Jews as Chosen ‘people who dwell in covenant with God’s unique spiritual traits, terms and conditions.

The first mention of Zion in the Bible is in 2 Samuel 5:7, “David captured the fortress of Zion to build the City of David.” Zion originally ancient Jebusite fortress in the City of Jerusalem. After David’s conquest of the fortress, Jerusalem became a possession of Israel. The royal palace was built there and Zion Jerusalem became the seat of power in Israel’s kingdom. When Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem, meaning of Zion City expanded further to include the temple area in Psalm 2:6, 48:2, 11:12, 232:13. In the prophecy of Jeremiah 31:6, “Come, let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God.” In  Isaiah 40:9, Old Testament Zion name for the City of Jerusalem includes the land of Judah according to Jeremiah 31:12. The nation of Israel as a whole is called Zion in Zechariah 9:13. The word Zion in theology in a spiritual sense in Scripture means figuratively to Israel as the people of God in Isaiah 60:14. In New Testament, Zion is God’s spiritual KINGDOM for believers to come “to Mount Zion and to the City of the living God in the heavenly Jerusalem as stated in Hebrews 12:12. Peter, said quoting Isaiah 28:16, Christ is Cornerstone of Zion: “See, I lay a Stone in Zion chosen precious Cornerstone and one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame in 1 Peter 2:6.

Mount Zion as a geographical area currently is a center of dispute. The Bible is clear, one day, Zion will be the Sole Possession of the Lord Jesus and Zion the nation and City will be restored. “Awake, awake, Clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion, Clothe yourself in your beautiful garments O Jerusalem, the HOLY City for the spiritually uncircumcised unclean will no longer come into you says Isaiah 52:1. The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you and all who despise you will bow down at your feet and call you the City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel according to Isaiah 60:14. Isaiah 34:8 For the Lord hath a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the controversy of ZionDavid’s declaration in 1 Chronicles 22:1, says David in the Psalms state Zion is for God as the reserved place where the LORD God would dwell. The temple was located at Zion from time David brought the Ark into Jerusalem until they took it to temple on Mount Moriah. The Temple belonged at Zion but due to wars fought by David Ark was often hidden in secret locations in Scripture as Mount Zion the highest point of elevation than Mount Moriah.

In 2 Samuel 6:16 And it was so, as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart. 17 They brought in ark of the Lord and set it in its place, in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord. Nahmanides in Jerusalem In the year 1322 Estori Farhi was in Jerusalem; and his “Kaftor wa-Ferah” (ch. vi.) gives archeological description of city (Eng. transl. in “Itinerary” of Benjamin of Tudela, ii. 393; German, in Zunz, “G. S.” ii. 268). According to Farhi, Jerusalem was three parasangs long. He mentions the entrance to the Cave of Hezekiah (B. K.16b), within the walls of Jerusalem to the north; the tent erected by David for Ark, in a place called “David’s Temple,” south of Mt. Moriah (comp. “Yihus ha-Abot,” p. 25); northwest of this was a place where a synagogue and the Jewish quarter (see David b. Zimrah, Responsa, No. 633). The city of Jerusalem is, according to him, higher than Mt. Moriah and higher than the synagogue.

In 2 Samuel 5:4-9 King David takes stronghold of mount Zion where he was mocked that the blind and lame shall not come in there. The spiritually blind and lame cannot come into the HOUSE of God metamorphoricaly speaking. All must know God for themselves and His Words in Scripture. 1 Chronicles 11:4 And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem the same is Jebus and Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there. 5 And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David: ‘Thou shalt not come in hither.’ Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion; the same is the city of David. 6 And David said: ‘Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain.’ And Joab the son of Zeruiah went up first, and was made chief. 7 David dwelt in the stronghold; therefore they called it the city of David. 8And he built the city round about, from Millo even round about; and Joab repaired the rest of the city. Isaiah 33:5 the Lord is exalted, for He dwelleth on high; He hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness. The House of God will stand at the HOLY site that is most suited for prayer as it is written: “God’s Eyes are opened towards HIS HOUSE night and day, towards the place HIS NAME IS, to HEAR the prayer Your servant will pray toward this place. And You shall hear the supplication of Your servant and of Your people Israel that they will pray toward this place.” Isaiah 33:20 Look upon Zion, the City of our solemn gatherings your eyes shall see Jerusalem a Peaceful Habitation, a tent shall not be removed, the stakes shall never be plucked up, neither shall the cords be broken ever again.

This information locates Zion to conclude though previous temples located at Zion were destroyed, 2 Samuel 5:8 refers to a landmark water shaft. “Water shaft” is rendered “quarry tunnel stretching beside Temple for washing and purification required” in the 1917 Jewish Publication Society Tanakh. Scripture notes other landmarks located with certainty today to establishes the western boundary of the City of David in ancient times is the water channel built by King Hezekiah. And in 2 Chronicles 32:30, Hezekiah stopped the upper spring waters of Gihon and brought them straight down on the western side of the city of David. And Hezekiah prospered in all his works. Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of messenger of good tidings, that announce PEACE, the harbinger of good tidings, announces salvation; saying to Zion: ‘Your God Reigns!’ 8 The watchmen lift up their voice, together to sing; for they shall see, eye to eye, the Lord returning to Zion. 9 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Lord hath comforted His people, He hath redeemed Jerusalem. 10 the LORD has made bare His HOLY ARM in the eyes of all the nations and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

The Millo in this ancient map in Hebrew: המלוא was a place in Jerusalem first mentioned in 2 Samuel 5:9 and in Chronicles and Kings. It is part of the expansion of the City of David built by the Jebusites before conquest by David with Joab and Israelites. Joab specifically expanded David’s City into Millo nearby Solomon’s Temple. Millo was rebuilt and repaired by Solomon. There is archaeological and historical site of Millo from ancient Israel  and ruins of Millo as Stepped Stone Structure uncovered by  Kathleen Kenyon and Eilat Mazar connected Millo to the recently discovered large stone structure. Excavation by Eilat Mazar directly above the Stepped Stone Structure shows this structure connects and supports the large Stone Structure. Mazar presents evidence that the Large Stone Structure was an Israelite royal palace in continuous use from tenth century as part of a single, massive royal palace. This biblical reference to Millo as the House of Millo in II Kings 12:21 and II Chronicles 24:25 was the place where King Joash lived until 799 BC. Millo is derived from “fill” in Hebrew milui). The stepped stone support structure is built of fills. In Samuel, Millo is mentioned as the boundary of King David’s construction while building up the City of David after capture of Jerusalem from Jebusites. Millo is translated literally as Landfill or supporting terraces.

Hezekiah’s repair of the Millo is mentioned in repairs to military fortifications, and several scholars agree connection to military tower citadel or significant part of a wall. It was embankment flattened slope between Ophel and the Temple Mount. Isaiah 46:13 God brings near HIS righteousness not far off and HIS salvation shall not delay and WILL place salvation in Zion for Israel HIS Glory. Amos 9:11 In that day GOD WILL I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old. 12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom and all nations, upon whom My NAME is called, says the Lord WHO does this. 2 Chronicles 5:2 Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all heads of the tribes, the princes of the fathers’ houses of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the Covenant of the Lord out of the City of David in Zion2 Samuel 6:16, As ark of the LORD came into the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord and despised him in her heart. 17 And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in its place, in the midst of the tent David pitched for it and David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord. Acts 15:16 After these things I will return, and will rebuild the tabernacle of David which is fallen, and will rebuild its ruins, and will set it up, 17 so that the residue of men may seek out the Lord, and all the nations on whom my name is invoked, saith [the] Lord, who does these things 18 known from eternity.

Lower Eastern Hill City of David

Mount Zion name of the Jebusite fortified city on the lower part of ancient Jerusalem’s Eastern Hill, known as City of David where he built his palace but Zion extends outwards to include: According to the 2 Samuel Mount Zion the site of the Jebusite fortress called the “stronghold of Zion” that was conquered by King David then renamed and partially rebuilt by him as the “City of David”, where he erected his palace, courtyards. Upper Eastern Hill Temple Mount was First Temples and Tabernacles precede Solomon’s Temple erected at the top of the Eastern Hill on “Mount Zion.” After the conquest of the Jebusite city, its build-up area expanded northward towards uppermost part of the Eastern Hill. The highest point became site of Solomon’s Temple. The identification of pre-Israelite Jebusite and Israelite towns on the Eastern Hill is based on existence of only one perennial water source in the area, the Gihon Spring and archaeological excavations revealing sections of the Bronze Age and Iron Age city walls and water systems. The “Mount Zion” mentioned in Isaiah 60:13- 14 and in Book of Psalms and First Book of Maccabees (c. 2nd century BCE) to refers to top of the hill Temple Mount.

Western Hill Mount Zion

Natural topography of the old city of Jerusalem and its surroundings. The last shift of the name Mount Zion was to the Western Hill, which is more dominant than the Eastern Hill and seemed to first-century CE Jerusalemites the worthier location for the by-then lost palace of King David. The Western Hill is what today is called Mount Zion. In the second half of the First Temple period, the City expanded westward and its defensive walls were extended to include the entire Western Hill behind them. Transitions have taken place over the years changing boundaries and relocating places of worship when required or forced upon the people because they were banned from the use of a previous Temple or synagogue or church. Nebuchadnezzar 2 destroyed the city almost completely around 586 BCE, erasing the continuity of living historical memory. A long period of rebuilding followed, ending with Jerusalem’s second total destruction at the hands of the Romans in 70 CE. And Josephus, a first-century CE historian who knew the city as it was before destruction identified Mount Zion as the Western Hill near the lower, Eastern Hill by Tyropoeon Valley. Josephus used in place of the name “Mount Zion” in his writings, the “Citadel” of King David as being situated on higher and longer hill pointing to the Western Hill as what the Bible calls Mount Zion.

Modern Political demarcations of Israel clearly show varying contrasts in maps before the time of Jesus and afterwards. Some of the featured sites on today’s maps were non existent in ancient maps of Israel. Whenever there is conquest and wars, the powerful winner takes it all so erases the significant landmarks that remind them of their predecessor’s presence or influence over the people. Every effort is made and no expenses spared to attempt to wipe out all traces of the previous leaders and contributions to the society. Even central places of YAHWEH’S WORSHIP are not spared by the Romans installing their God Zeus in God’s Holy Temple. And Maccabeans fought relentlessly to restore the Temple again and sanctified Holy of Holies to worship God. In the same way, versions of living history often presented from the perspective of victors who vilify victims as the evil perpetrators responsible for all ill. So attempts are made to conceal or eradicate all traces of archeological evidence in favour of victims to deny justice in favour of their cause against oppressive rulers. Heavy bulldozing takes place to demolish land marks and destroy precious artefacts to deny previous existence of victims hounding conscience of oppressors. Even perfectly, useful and sound structures that can last for hundreds of years are demolished to humiliate and punish the victims. In the process treasure and antiquities of sacred value are plundered and sold off to scatter original owners.

This strategy empowers perpetrators as Nebuchadnezzar who took God’s golden treasures to Babylon used in his palace courts to entertain his governors and officials. Some Holy Sites were turned into dumpsters and toilets for centuries so like searching for a needle in a haystack is an attempt to put together treasures or items to reconstruct exact original structures and contents damaged or destroyed in history. Accurate historical records in the Bible detail the exact descriptions of various Temples and contents designs as architecturally specified by God to Moses or David among others. As a result, many generations of descendants and opposing factions get sucked into perpetual conflict based on their versions of history. Often each side has supporting documents relating to their own perspective with discrepancies over the overall party entitled to sole ownership. Almighty God’s Holy of Holies is not spared by megalomaniac anti-Christs usurping Rightful place of God. By imposing themselves as desolation sacrilege defiling God’s Sanctuary and demanding worship in Dwelling place of YAHWEH in Mount Zion. Since each side is convinced they are absolutely right in their own way so will not compromise, the onus is on God to resolve this matter once and for all. It is for this reason that YAHWEH Chose Mount Zion as HIS PERSONAL PRIVATE LAND AND PROPERTY LOCATION to take it from all those fighting over this tiny space in the whole world. Whenever God is ready to move in for Aliyah HE WILL sooner than later. But like a dying horse kicking hard, anti-Christs put up a fight against Almighty God until HE wipes them all out in Armageddon battle to take back HIS Possession.

“Always go out in the joy of the LORD God and be led forth in peace that passes all human understanding in Jesus Name. The mountains and hills will burst into song before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” The first part of this prayer is taken from Isaiah 55:12. It is certainly a favourite verse. We will go out in joy, and God will lead us forth in peace. 9ccbe51b6ab74142f596765bcf1d3c36

The mountains and hills burst into song before us in praise and adoration of God. As these Praise to God go up the blessing come down from God. So problems, troubles, mountains and hills move because with God all things are possible. Even trees of field join us in clapping their hands and singing to the Glory and Honour of God.God-Bless-You-Images15

This verse speaks telling us that God is in the business of celebrating us when we come before HIM. And the joy of the Lord is our strength so things or people, situation we think can never be moved, God intervenes to help us rejoice to clap their hands!cX2pKqA_d The Mountains and Hills sing, Trees clap with Joy and PEACE that passes all understanding. The Joy of the Lord is our strength in Jesus Name. So great inner peace and joy of God even in the midst of adversity. What tomorrow brings is in Good God’s Hands so count on God our Solid Rock in Christ in God.happy birthday messages

A final part of prayer by congregations is taken from Numbers 6: 24 -26. “The minister recites: LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His Face to Shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you And give you peace. Proverbs 3:5-6.e393971d466434f98235437a9ff929a55dfeebf0

image-39Forever trust in the LORD God Almighty with all your heart and do not lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE WILL make your paths straight. So Philippians 4:7  says peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”37410 So, go out in joy unspeakable as Isaiah 55:12 says be led in PEACE transcending understanding. And always count on God as Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us.

HOLY KISS GREETING & HUGS

article-2071835-0F1BBF8E00000578-716_634x422In Romans 16:16 in the Bible Paul wrote in New Testament commanding believers to make contact or touch others with a warm smile, hand-clasp and a friendly hug. Paul encouraged the congregation and church members to give each other a hug, a touch as a sign of unity to greet each other with a holy kiss and hugs. And speak through the Psalms as people quote Shakespeare to share favourite lines in literature. The Pentecostals often greet each other with kisses and hugs. Visitors are welcomed this way so if the new members are not used to such a way of greeting they can feel innaudated and intimidated by the zealous members embracing or kissing them if not used to an intimate way of expressing agape love. Recently, in the church a female pastor rushed towards a new male visitor and proceeded to try to hug him as she does for many years. But the new member raised both his hands to indicate, ‘do not touch me or come too close.’ It surprised everyone as it had never happened before. Maybe others out of politeness and courtesy tolerate it or probably just go along with kisses or hugs, but no one ever rejected it before. It is perfectly understable if some people feel uncomfortable and say no, it does not mean rejection of the one expressing such Biblical principles. On other occasions, for security reasons, important leaders are not allowed to be touched or hugged under any circumstances. Of course that scenario can happen in church gatherings so if not sure, ask if it is alright to do so. 22CULTURALSTUDIES1-jumbo.jpgIn some places female to female hugs and kisses are preferred or handshakes encouraged. But the woman must first extend her hand to a man because the man is not allowed to shake a married women’s hands in some cultures. On the other hand there are countries that see kiss or hugs as prerogative of diplomacy so must be done. In some churches women are only allowed to kiss and hug other women as men kiss and hug the men. In an age of legal homosexuality, lesbian partnerships or marriages the churches in favour has no problems or prefer handshakes. However is common in the workplace to encourage hugging for bonding and a sense of belonging. But how about those people in the offices who do not like to be kissed or bugged publicly at least at awkward moments. You are greeting someone or saying goodbye. Should you give that person a hug? Especially if it’s someone you don’t know well? You do not want to seem intrusive if you hug too soon, but you don’t want to appear overly stiff or too formal so you offer a handshake when a hug is expected. So what should you do? There a few good rules about hugging in our society.article-2148121-133B0FA3000005DC-582_468x309On one hand, Americans are famously informal and forthright. On the other hand, our nation has puritan roots so we are known for needing more personal space than other cultures. How do you strike a balance? Here are some guidelines to start from, many of which come from etiquette expert Jacqueline Whitmore, author of Poised for Success.

1. Mind body language.

With hugs, as with kisses, another person’s body language will tell you whether he or she is willing to accept a hug or not. Before you go in for that squeeze, pay attention to what the person’s position, movement, and facial expression is telling you. Are the feet pointed toward you or away? Is the person leaning in, or distancing him or herself? What does your gut feeling tell you this person wants? When people offend others with a hug, it’s most often because they just barge right in and don’t stop to get a read on what other person wants. Don’t make that mistake. Children are now being taught to meet and greet properly to learn etiquette. t1larg (1).jpg

2. Ask Permission First.

If you want to hug someone, you think it welcomes you if not sure just ask. “May I give you a hug question indicates both affection, respect so likely appreciated. The only down side to this if people feel embarrassed or uncomfortable saying no. So if getting a negative or uncertain vibe do not even asking the question.

3. The Balance of Power.

A boss hugging an employee is a very different matter from two business associates hugging at the conclusion of a meeting. Be extra reserved about hugging if it can in any way seem like you’re using your power to disrespect another person’s boundaries. This is one reason Joe Biden recently drew so many criticisms for his putting his hands on  a cabinet member’s wife during swearing in ceremony.

4. Consider the occasion.

If you haven’t seen a colleague in a long time, or you’ve just gone through a powerful training or other experience together, or you’re at acelebration, then hugging might well be appropriate. The same may apply if the person in question has just had a piece of very good, or very bad news, or is struggling to deal with a difficult situation. On the other hand, if you routinely see this person and nothing special is going on, then a hug probably isn’t warranted.LXNGDEDJXOCNTOWYIIGFSDIU

5. Avoid mixing hug & non hugs.

You’re greeting a group of people, some of whom you know well and others whom you know only slightly or have just met. Do you hug some but not others? No, Whitmore advises. Shake hands with everyone to be consistent avoid making some feel uncomfortable or left out.

6. Keep it short.

A hug can go from natural to awkward if you keep it going for too long. So make your hugs brief. Whitmore recommends a duration of no more than three seconds.

7. Don’t hug if contagious

The last thing you want to do is give your colleague a cold, or catch one from him or her. So if you’re uncertain about your own health, or the other person seems to be fighting an infection, stick to a handshake at most, although not touching at all is probably safest. You can always say that you’re avoiding touch out of concern that you might spread something you’ve been exposed to if you are really afraid of catching something from other person.kissing-in-costa-rica-2

8. Don’t hug if not clean.

Let’s say you’re meeting on a very hot day, and you’ve gotten sweaty on your walk over from the parking lot. Or you’ve had a workout and returned to work but didn’t have time to shower. Or you’ve been out at a site visit and gotten grimy. In those circumstances, avoid hugging. The last thing you want to do is gross someone out.

9. Err on not hugging.

If you’re not sure whether a hug would be welcome, and you don’t think it’s a good idea to ask, then don’t hug. You’ll almost never offend someone with a handshake.

10. Cease the right moment.

In spite of all these caveats, I’m still a believer in the power of human contact. So if you feel like a hug is warranted and none of the obstacles above apply, I say go for it. I once met a business contact face-to-face for the first time after we’d been working together for several years. I felt like I knew him, and he seemed to feel the same, because at our first meeting, he greeted me with a hug. I was surprised, but happily so. During that brief meeting we talked more about our lives than about business and by the time I left, I had a human relationship to go with the emails and voice on the phone. That hug was a great way to start.

JESUS IS THE SAME FOREVER

hebrews-13_8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever says Hebrews 13:8. The Son of God and Saviour of mankind, Chosen by God Rules God’s Kingdom eternally. Jesus is alive and well in heaven so did not evolve into another person and is not reincarnated as anyone else. Jesus is the Lamb of God and Ultimate Sacrifice of humanity. Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus disintegrate into an angel, pope or any imposter falsely claiming to be the Messiah Yeshua. The authentic, genuine, original, real Jesus is ALIVE AND WELL and coming back physically to earth to rule forever as God ordained Him to be. Jesus never transitioned into any other form of human being as often taught by many people falsely to deceive them to hell. Jesus accurately predicted after His ascension Alive into heaven, there will be many false Christs deceiving people including even chosen, elect, remnant if they are not discerning. Some refuse to submit to God’s plans and purpose for mankind through Jesus Christ so instead create their own version of faith to lure people away from God. Try to convince people Jesus failed God in completing His assignment on earth to bring perfect peace politically so they replace Jesus in doing so. They wanted a political leader to redeem them from exploitation by unjust tyrants who extorted taxes and banned them from worship. Increased agitation and helplessness against their rulers and leaders who exploited them aggravated them to look for a militant conqueror. Disappointed Jesus did not command armies of heaven to eradicate their enemies. Instead, Jesus told them His Kingdom is not of secular world but God’s Kingdom so failed to understand Jesus’ mission on earth. Hebrews+13_8The oppressed wanted immediate relief from their oppressors so looked for new opportunities in militant Leaders. In doing so, they misunderstood that it was God who allowed those imposters as a part of their demands of permissive will against God in the first place. Did not realise as mankind rejected God as Theocratic Leader of all HIS creation so God let them endure those they chose in place of God. God was angered and so allowed humans to control themselves as long as possible to discover the error. God allowed time for people to have the taste of their own medicine as they now prefer man’s rule over God’s Rule. After many generations of suffering and toil, God heard cries of people and sent help through the prophets, priests, ministers, and appointed elders. Although some do listen and obey them, majority refused to accept Godly instructions. Finally God sent HIS OWN SON JESUS, God’s Heir to throne of David to touch their hearts to repent to accept God’s Rule again. Sadly, many did not take keen interest in Jesus as God intends. After many generations of human leaders, lack of knowledge of God as Direct ruler of mankind seems a strange concept to them. God decided to give freedom of choice to mankind to be the master of their own destiny against HIS WILL. Therefore God gave mankind ‘permission’ to convince themselves that they are better without God’s input. As the years passed, it became clearer that mankind desperately needs God’s help even more than ever before. So God in HIS WISDOM and Compassionate Mercy extends beyond measure LOVE to all HIS faithful, loyal Children, crying to God day and night, interceding to God to redeem world from reckless pain and needless suffering. However, there is a problem as an absolute power corrupts absolutely, humans have tasted power and enjoyed the pecks and privileges of power refuse to renounce the powerful positions to God to take HIS RIGHTFUL PLACE of authority over mankind. This is the ultimate source of all conflict on earth. In the process some religious leaders vying for total control of world exclusively, want to prove they are the real McCoy chosen by God among the others competing for the same position. This is why they try to trace their power to Jesus to try to convince people they are the ‘real Messiah Yeshua’ to rule. So reinforce teaching messages to fool people into thinking they are to rule mankind in place of Jesus. The problem is Jesus is Alive and well in heaven and Coming back soon to earth to Rule. jes003Many other ‘Jesuses’ exist today in order to justify themselves as the new ‘Jesus,’ so try to ‘eliminate’ True Authentic Jesus by telling people that Yeshua Messiah is transformed or reborn as that leader. A closer look shows contradictions and an inability to convince from Bible ideas in line with Testimony of the Word of God. Nowhere in the Bible does God say Jesus will be replaced by another Saviour to come after Jesus Christ. Jesus is Ultimate Sacrifice in heaven waiting on God’s Command to come to earth in Rapture in clouds to save to rescue God’s chosen, faithful and loyal remnants awaiting His Coming soon. Jesus WILL Return physically to set up Eternal Kingdom on earth from Israel. In the meantime, God is giving people the chance to repent, to accept and believe in Jesus to join God’s Kingdom before it is too late. After the Rapture, world descends into chaos of evil unseen before culminating in battle of Armageddon says Psalm 83. So God takes by force, God’s Rightful Rule over mankind forever and ever and God’s Kingdom has no end. Those who refuse to submit to God’s Rule sadly will face God’s judgements and punishments in hell fire. This world is changing fast in line with the word of God in the Bible from Genesis to Revelations prophecies are happening daily in the news. Study the Bible yourself like the Bereans and know the truth for yourself. The Truth you know sets you free in Jesus Name so if leader knows exposed and denounced by genuine truth of God will do not let you discover truth for you to abandon them. So tell you to listen exclusively to them only not to read any other sources of information including the Bible. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light so changes the brainwashed, transformed and renewed to be saved. As the source of income, some cults manipulate them making it difficult and impossible to leave without threats if convinced by Godly Bible Truth. Take note nobody can save you except Jesus Christ. World events are part of bigger picture unfolding and end time reality happenings everyday. Prepare and make informed choice for your own good in Jesus Name. Be reassured the same Jesus alive in heaven EXACTLY is SAME JESUS COMING AGAIN to earth soon even right at the door. Jesus said many people use His name to perform miracle wonders. God is powerful and HIS Words are sharper than two-edged sword working miracle but if motive is wrong God rejects them. Paul said he did not want to lead others to Christ and perish himself so ran the race to win the prize like all other believers. God highly exalted Jesus above all names so at the mention of Name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord to the Glory of LORD God Yahweh. The angels told the disciples on Mount Olives, Jesus they saw going into heaven is SAME JESUS CHRIST COMING back to earth on Mount Olives.. 11So Jesus did not, decay, decompose, degenerate, dematerialized, deteriorate, disintegrate, dissolve, fragment, go to pieces, granulate, grinded, interred in God’s memory, melt, molder, perish, powdered, pulverize, putrefy, triturate, tumble into another human being or turned into Archangel Michael. At the sound of trumpets by archangels, Jesus WILL appear with heavenly host brightly for all eyes to see Jesus’ Second Coming to earth. Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death but GIFT of God is ETERNAL Life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus conquered death permanently by GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE. John 3:16 says, God so LOVED the world HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS, WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN JESUS WILL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. Jesus did not resurrect as the woman of the Church of Almighty God cult started in 1990s claims Jesus was resurrected as a woman in China. Chinese authorities frequently crack down on cult members over the years, confiscated computers and books used by cult for recruitment. The Church of Almighty God refused to give a direct response to BBC but refers to its US-based website which contains multiple alleged testimonies of believers tortured by Chinese authorities. So cult’s core belief is Jesus returned to earth as a Chinese woman to wreak apocalypse. The person who claims direct contact with God as founder is former physics teacher, Zhao Weishan, who founded cult 25 years ago and fled to the United States. Jesus is not resurrected into any other person. A born again believer in God does not perish because Spirit lives on but body interred, if well-preserved intact or decays to dust but reawaken at trumpet call. God has enough creation material to make all of mankind, angels, creatures, the earth, sky and firmament. So God does not recycle human life into new beings because of shortage of ingredients. God does not turn dead into another one so makes zillions of each individual since creation and continues to do so. People are unique, one of a kind, God made to display the wonders of God’s MAJESTY. So the Real Jesus is seated at Right Hand of God on Throne in heaven and is Alive forevermore. Paul warns in latter times some will fall away from true faith by paying attention to follow misleading counterfeit teaching of demons says 1 Timothy 4:1. The doctrine of eternal life in Christ means the Spirit of God in man never dies so returns to God after death to join the saints singing before God’s Throne in heaven. Those in Christ alive on earth join Jesus in Rapture teaching supported by Bible. Jesus said: “You will know the truth and the truth sets you free in John 8:32. All who prefer to be asleep, God allows to remain asleep till after 1000 year Reign of Jesus on earth. So gain accurate knowledge of God’s Bible truth and correct teaching of God’s Kingdom principles and practices for growth promotion by faith in Christ in God. Matthew 25:31 says Jesus RETURNS with thousands of angels accompanying Jesus to earth physically a Divine being.  At Second Coming, Christ will descend to Mount Olives in Jerusalem to Reign 1000 years. After ascension He prepares place for you so will come again and in Rapture receive you to be with Jesus in heaven with God. So Acts 1:11 said to the disciples, you men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into Heaven, This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, WILL come back in the same way you saw him ascend to heaven. So they returned to Jerusalem from Mount of Olives in Israel. Jesus has not turned into anyone else so is coming back to earth soon and all eyes will see Jesus Yeshua Messiah on His Return.
