GOD DESTROYS gods & idols

15638006982148295271043831435818.jpgGod’s Ark triumphs over dagon, broken in pieces, after it was ceased in battle. A plan of the enemy to humiliate Israel in battle imploded dagon fell and broke in pieces. Jesus’ triumph over gods or idols means kingdom of satan defeated. The kingdom of Christ in God is living truth eternal Godliness. Be confident of day of triumph in Christ true Ark of Covenant in hearts of mankind to destroy satan’s temple. Idols fall in Psalm 115:5, they have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes but cannot cannot  see, ears, but cannot hear, noses but cannot smell says Isaiah 44:13. All who serve and worship it like them. Psalm 135:16 have mouth cannot speak, eyes cannot see, ears cannot hear no life in their mouths. Isaiah 6:10, They have mouths, cannot speak, eyes cannot see, Jeremiah 5:21,Ezekiel12:2, Matthew 13:15, Acts 28:27. Antiochus’ statue Zeus  in God’s temple Hellenic priest sacrifice pigs to Greek god religion angered Jews. Greek official ordered a Jewish priest to perform a Hellenic sacrifice, the priest Mattathias killed him. In 167 BCE, Jews joined Mattathias and five sons to fight to win freedom from Seleucid authority. Mattathias’ son Judah Maccabee, called “The Hammer”re-dedicated temple in 165 BCE and Jews celebrate event to this day major part of festival of Hanukkah.IMG-20190722-WA0003.jpgGod allows captivity if their hearts turn dull and ears heavy, shut their eyes lest they see with eyes or hear with ears to change and saved. Jesus quoted Isaiah’s prophecy, lest they see with their eyes, hear with their ears and saved. Isaiah 42-53 highlights people serve God with their ears open but did not listen. So he laments over God’s chosen people who copy heathen pagans who shape gods or cast idols with eyes plastered, sculpture wood they call gods. God allows people to have reprobate minds in Romans 1 to do as they like to serve the creature not Creator God. All sins forsaken by them is forgiven so righteous are restored by salvation. Jesus will claim His throne so and all will be dethroned and crucified.  The dagon spirit will not prevail against God’s Children but those who continue Jesus condemns to seek salvation or be entirely destroyed like in Samuel 5:6-12. God warns believers of serving another god in addition to Living God Jehovah so thou shall have no other gods apart from Adonai Elohim. God shows mighty power in defeating Egypt yet in absence of Moses Aaron permitted golden calves but God saved them. Tragedies results from rebellion of idolatry against God. IMG-20190722-WA0002.jpgGod becomes angry with them forsakes them…. Many disasters and calamities came on them, that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us? “I will hide my face that day because of wickedness in turning to other gods” says Deuteronomy 31:16-18. In 1 Kings 11 Solomon’s idolatry of love of foreign women: Pharaoh’s daughter, Hittite and Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon. Were from nations the LORD said to Israel “Never intermarry with them to tempt you to follow their gods.” Solomon obsessed by love had 700 and 300 concubines. In old age, wives tempt him to follow idol gods no longer committed to LORD God like father David. Solomon followed Astarte goddess of Sidonian, Milcom idol of the Ammonites. Solomon did evil as LORD  considered not wholeheartedly follows the LORD. Solomon built site on hill east of Jerusalem for Chemosh idol of Moab, Molech idol of Ammonites. These things for his foreign wives to burn incense to sacrificed to their gods. God Pronounces judgment on Solomon angry because his heart turned from the LORD God of Israel who appeared to him twice. God commands him not to follow other gods, but Solomon did not obey God. LORD  told Solomon, “I will tear kingdom from you to give to your sons. I will not do it in your lifetime because of your father David. I will tear it from hands of your son. I will not tear whole kingdom away from you. I will give your son a tribe for my servant David’s sake and the sake of JERUSALEM THE CITY I CHOSE.”15638808712343548709652712321450.jpg15638816264066145787514658232527.jpg15638815050961186563612446522861.jpgIMG-20190811-WA0008.jpgGod LOVES Solomon but hates idolatry  and punished him. Elijah killed Jezebel’s 400 baal prophets to help restore Godly worship in vain and 7000 true prophets of God could not change idolatory in Israel. Elect 144,000 Israel males sealed in Revelations has tribe of Dan excluded by idolatory. Revelation 7 missed from 144,000 the tribe of Dan. Twelve thousands from Jacob’s twelve sons and twelve tribes of Israel includes tribe of Levi’s inheritance in the LORD. Levites refused to worship golden calf so God made priests in his Tabernacle. Joseph’s tribe split into two, each son Manasseh and Ephraim received an inheritance. In the list of those sealed in Revelation, tribe of Levi is listed. Tribe of Dan excluded, suggest false prophet of Revelation may be from tribe of Dan. Others see Dan’s role in leading Israel into idolatry as a cause for being left out of the 144,000 in Judges 18:30–31. Tribes not blessed by inclusion in this seal, prophetic books indicate members of tribe of Dan will be saved and receive land in the millennial kingdom in Ezekiel 48:2. Mankind may lost track of members of tribes, God but God knows them all in Revelation 7:4–8.IMG-20190722-WA0000.jpg
In Judges 18:30, The children of Dan set up graven image in new city of Dan and built house for it, where Jeroboam later set up one of his golden calves. Danites succeeded in Micah’s house, venerated graven images brought with them and set up religious worship. Molten image, teraphim, ephod all placed together for devotion and consultation. Jonathan son of Gershom, son of Manasseh as priests to tribe of Dan resided in the city of Dan Jonathan the Levite Micah took into his house made priest. Danites took to Laish priest son of Gershom, son of Manasseh Gershom son of Moses’ grandson. Like Phinehas grandson of Aaron in Judges 20:28, grandson of Moses in honour of Moses. Forgot virtues of his grandfather, Moses the priests in Dan in captivity of the land for idolatry. Idolatrous priests, through time of Samuel, David, Solomon in captivity of Israel, time of Jabin king of Canaan. Gersom’s idolatry continued in house of God at Shiloh, ark captured by Philistines. House of Shiloh forsaken  says Psalms 78:58-61 as God permitted.IMG-20190722-WA0001.jpgIn Acts 19:24-41, Demetrius and fellow silversmiths in Ephesus lost demand for idol products, statuettes of the goddess Artemis. Loss is attributed to growing numbers of the Christians who do not worship gods made with human hands. Highlights Christian population growth frightens diminished revenue of crafts creating statues. People against faith of Christians due to loss of money for their silversmiths. So their greedy economic gain keeps people in bondage connected to idols to enrich such masters. Growth of Christianity’s success turned believer from adherence to false gods. The more observant Christians increased so fewer people bought statuettes of idol gods to engage in religious rituals. It threatened economic production of an organization that profited greatly from idol worship. This trend in metropolitan Ephesus sets precedence for booming business that parasited profit at expense of souls. 15638085661946643585036976509700.jpgThey feared if whole of Asia persuaded by Paul to draw away from gods made with hands their trade may end. Idols  in disrepute and temple gods scorned to deprived all Asia and world of worship. And enraged, they shouted and rushed together to the theatre, dragging Gaius and Aristarchus the Macedonian Paul’s travelling-companions. Paul was not let in crowd by disciples but sent a message urging him not to venture into theatre. The crowd instructed Alexander, the Jews pushed forward to make defence before people. A town clerk quietened crowd and said, citizens of Ephesus city statue fell from heaven…. They are not temple robber blasphemer of gods so in danger being charged rioting, dismissed assembly. Today convincing nations idol worshippers of their false gods not well received to be saved by Jesus eternally. Stirs up anger and false charges so they left. Baby Jesus in Egypt records testify that townsfolk infuriated when stone statue of an idol cracked and fell evicted the Holy Family from the town. In Egypt Tal-Basta – or Basta Jesus caused spring from ground and His Presence triggered idols to crumble. The townsfolk in anger turned aggressive, Holy Family turned their backs on town heads southwards to MostorodHistory record incident dating devastation of Qussqam. Coptic tradition says town ruin as consequence of violent rejection of the Holy Family of Jesus in their escape to Egypt.15648316192607707449909183363327.jpgThe Governor of Fustat enraged their idols  fell at Jesus’ approach sought to kill the Child. Took shelter in the cave Church of Abu Serga St. Sergius is built. Others welcome holy refugees received at Meir or Meira town seven miles west of Qoussia. Hospitality of town people is abundantly blessed. Revelations 6 says people who receive  Christ will be saved but all others who reject God’s Spirit filled Christian Gospel message will perish. Believers ordained to go into all the world to preach Gospel, Some seeds fall on good fertile ground multiply a hundred fold others fall on hard soil and perish. Jesus said He does not care about the world but prays for all those who love him to be preserved until He returns. Pray for all people for God to open spiritual eyes to see to hear the truth and be saved from kingdom of darkness into glolious kingdom of light of the Gospel. You can take the horse to the water but you cannot force them to drink. Share love of God and God saves them in Jesus Name. Pray for the whole family to be delivered from generations of idolatry convenants entered into by their ancestors and forefathers against God. Plead Blood of Jesus like Gideon, Hezekiah, Manasseh build NEW ALTAR to living God. Let deliverance ministers deal with idol gods don’t do so yourself. Put on whole armour of God and cover yourself with Jesus blood and worship the Only One True God.IMG-20190723-WA0000.jpgGod instructs HIS people to drive out all the inhabitants of Land of Israel as they settle down. HE warned them: “If you do not drive out inhabitants of land from you, those you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides to harass you in land you dwell in” in Numbers 33:55. The Israelites crossed Jordan made treaties allows Canaanites to dwell among them. They continued practicing their pagan rituals, led them into pagan practices and their attacks. God cares for strangers or refugees with love and friendliness. The alien residing in land not to be oppressed but treated as citizens as you love yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt,” in  Leviticus 19:33-34;20:24-26. Acts 17:26-27 says God let all nations inhabit whole earth allotted by boundary places to live as Leviticus states God separated people of Israel from others ordered them not to mix to train them ROLE MODELS to all nations. The Christian Church in the world does not belong to world so is set apart for God’s Christian community for Children of God’s Kingdom. The Church community in the world interacts with fellow human beings outside Church. Agape love open hearts and gentleness kindness in Bible account helps people on the move, strangers, immigrants and refugees without a home in 1 Peter 2:9,  John 17:16, Philippians 4:5. God justifies Israel training them ROLE MODELS not by racism or culture, gender for there is no Jew, Gentiles, slaves nor free in God’s Kingdom. ALL WHO DO WILL OF GOD SO OBEY HIS COMMANDS HE LOVES IN HIS ETERNAL PRESENCE. Those who reject God’s Grand plans for mankind HE ELIMINATES by WRATH.

JESUS ATTENTION MIRACLES

1559765839202-1772898553.jpgJesus attention miracles by some people in the Bible is amazing. A totally mad man lunatic, insane, violent, bound in chains living in cemetery, cuts himself RECOGNISED and worshipped Jesus at Gadarenes. He fell on his knees, asked Jesus to deliver him from 1000 demons tormenting him. Jesus healed him and cast out demons into pigs drowned in the sea. An insane man seeking Jesus’ help by himself is a Miracle as families struggle to control them. The madman in Matthew 8:28-34 called on Jesus so sane who hear Words of salvation for Eternal life, believe and be saved too.1559767269622-1772898553.jpgAn army captain sought Jesus’ help for servant’s health at home. Although sick man was not physically present pleaded with Jesus for his healing and humbled himself as a man of great power and with authority. He asked Jesus to speak the word and man will be well because people listen and obey his commands. So much more will healing COMMAND of Jesus be taken more seriously by God in heaven to heal him by faith. Jesus is so impressed with his belief in healing power of God. His faith has made man whole and he was healed so there is no distance in prayer in Jesus Name.1559814275142-1772898553.jpg A boy is healed by Jesus in Mark 9:14-25 when his father brought him to the disciples. Jesus came to His disciples and saw the great multitude around and the scribes disputing with them. 15. People greatly amazed run and greeted Him.16 Jesus asked the scribes, “What they discussed?” 17 A man in the crowd said “Teacher I brought my son who has deaf spirit and fits. 18 It seizes him and throws him down so he foams in mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I told Your disciples to cast it out but they could not.” 19 Jesus said O faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long do I bear with you? Bring him to Me. 20 They brought him to Jesus, as the boy saw Him the spirit convulsed so he fell on the ground, wallowed, foamed in the mouth. 21 He asked father, “How long is this happening to him, he said, from childhood. 22 He is thrown in fire and water. Have compassion, help us.” 23 Jesus said “All things are possible to all who believe.” The father cried with tears, “Lord I believe help my unbelief!” 24 Jesus rebuked unclean spirits, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more.” 25 The boy was healed from epilepsy and Jesus said some deliverances need faith for powerful ministration with the gift of faith to believe. The father’s faith has turned from unbelief to believe in faith in agreement son’s miracle manifested. Jesus told His disciples some miracles need fasting and prayers.1559767896115-348722457.jpgAnother fascinating true Jesus seeker is a woman not allowed to be in public to announce her sickness. She is supposed to isolated until clean before daring to get near or touch Jesus, HOLY MAN OF GOD. She pushed through the crowds and the press to touch Jesus’ garments and her bleeding stopped. Her choice of treatment is interesting after years of seeking medical help in vain. She spent lots of money but got worse and broke so sought Jesus the Great Physician. One point touch contact with Jesus has made her completely whole by her faith. The disciples challenged Jesus about virtue flowing into her. Impediments or some restrictions cannot stop the bold daring faith action to seek Jesus despite all the obstacles in their way for God’s help. In Mark 5:25- And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. She heard about Jesus came up behind in the crowd and touched his cloak 28 she thought, “If I touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in body free from suffering. 30 Jesus realized power had gone out from him. He turned to crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 Disciples said the crowds is thick yet you asked, ‘Who touched me? 32 Jesus look around to see 33 The woman, knowing who came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith healed you. Go in peace and be free from suffering.”wp-1559815442204..jpgMark 5:22-43 Jesus raised this dead girl when a synagogue leader Jairus came to Jesus and fell at His Feet. 23 He pleaded, “My little daughter is dying please come and heal her. 24 Jesus went with him so a large crowd followed….35 While Jesus was speaking people from the house of Jairus said. “Your daughter is dead don’t bother Jesus anymore.” 36 Jesus heard them and told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” 37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James, John brother of James. They came to home of synagogue leader, saw people crying and wailing loudly 39 He went in and said to them, “The child is not dead just asleep 40 But they laughed at Him. He put them out He took the child’s father and mother and disciples with him into room where the child was. 41 He took her hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!”( it means “Little girl, rise up. 42 The girl stood and walked, she was twelve years old. They were surprised 43 And Jesus gave strict orders not to let anyone know this, and told them to give her something to eat.1559767621187-1772898553.jpgA Syrophoenician woman calls on Jesus to heal her daughter but told it’s not yet the time of the Gentiles. Jesus is called FIRST to the House of Israel then all the nations. Her persistence paid off when she said crumbs from the table are good enough for the dogs. Her faith touched Jesus so she received healing on behalf of her daughter. She boldly approached Jesus directly and got her miracle that day. Believe by faith you are worthy of God’s Grace and Mercy even if the odds are against you in Jesus Name.1559768570244-1413976713.jpgCurious children followed crowds to see Jesus and to watch miracles. They came too close near Jesus as disciples wanted to remove them from Jesus. Then Jesus intervenes and said let the children come to me, DO NOT HINDER THEM for theirs is the Kingdom of God. Jesus also healed children, taught them to be kind to share food and He raised others from death as God uses children in the Bible for HIS GLORY. Jesus said anyone that hinders them it is better a millstone is hanged around their neck to drown. An outcast madman or ostracised bleeding woman and Gentile woman and Highly successful powerful people in Authority and the children are all worthy of God’s Grace, healing power, Mercy and God’s Comfort in time of need in Eternal life and in imminent Rapture Resurrection. 

GOD IS ABSOLUTELY A ‘MAN’

establishing-shot-with-Jesus-for-live-classes-768x320Jesus told Philip,” as you see Me you see Father God, all who see Jesus see Father God’s Image says John 14:9. In Isaiah 6:1 the prophet saw the LORD GOD sitting on HIS Throne High and Lifted up HIS train fills Temple. On HIS Throne a MAN Seats. Ezekiel 1:26-28 described God as a MAN on Throne in heaven. God reveals HIMSELF in Bible by HIS MASCULINE gender. God is male has female qualities but CHOSES to present HIMSELF a MAN emphasising masculine quality FATHER Strong protector, MIGHTY Warrior, etc. Describes HIMSELF in Bible as KING of Kings, Judge, Husband, Master, God our FATHER and our Lord Jesus Christ. God is Spirit but reveals HIMSELF as a MAN and Father in HUMAN BODY. God’s Son Jesus came to earth in human form says John 1:1 and God manifests HIMSELF as Father did not. Jesus is Emmanuel, “God with us” in.Matthew 1:23. And Numbers 23:19 emphasizes God’s truthfulness not like mortal men God in the human form changes HIS  MIND. Moses pleaded with God many times to change HIS MIND. So Bible says God appears in HIS PHYSICAL BODY. Isaiah 59:1 talks of GOD HANDS  and “EAR.” Chronicles 16:9 talks of HIS “EYES.” Matthew 4:4 on GOD’S MOUTH. 15632845166136994354567183668109.jpgDeuteronomy 33:27 says God’s “ARMS.” All of these verses describe God with the anatomical emotional terms so humans can better understand HIM. These mean imply God has ACTUAL BODY FORM not just blob of invisible shapeless Spirit. To God is spirit means Father is invisible to the world in Colossians 1:15 but God is a VISIBLE GOD when HE CHOOSES to do so. 1 Timothy 1:17 praises to God, KING of ages, immortal, invisible God, honour and GLORY forevermore. God is SPIRIT,  living personal being known personally. Joshua 3:10 says, “You know the LIVING God is among you.” Psalm 84:2 says “My heart and flesh sings for joy to a LIVING God.” Believers understands that as C. S. Lewis says gender deeper than human mind see. God’s MASCULINITY contains wo/man Eve made from Adam’s rib and relates to God as male and fe/male. The Church is refered to as bride of Christ so contains men and women. Ezekiel 1 saw heaven open, God on His Throne, fifth day of fourth month in a thirtieth year sitting by Chebar River. Ezekiel saw God and heard VOICE GOD ALMIGHTY like a Voice of speech noise of host Voice from firmament over their heads. Above was Throne of sapphire stone on Throne sat GOD. God of Israel seen, under HIS FEET pavement sapphire sky purity, Exodus 24:10. A magnificent meal on mountain shows God’s HU/MAN nature as HE ate with 70 elders and Moses on the Sinai mountain in Exodus 24:1-18. Bible says Covenant meal God reinforce Abraham Covenant by God inviting seventy elders to come to receive impartation of Spirit of God to lead HIS people in Numbers 11:16-30. Moses saw the LORD, spoke to God Face to face as a man speaks to HIS friend in Exodus 33:11. God is VISIBLE  many people testify of HIS HU/MAN/ITY. Moses and Joshua took seventy elders to eat meat with the LORD God and lived. They saw God, Face to face yet lived to dispel myths God is too Supernatural to be approached or compared to humans in any form, shape, size. Deuteronomy 21:15-17 passage said the seventy elders were anointed because the LORD GOD told Moses to ‘Bring the 70 men…so The LORD will give you meat and to eat. God is worshipped by a believer who really understand HIS full Divine Sovereignty and Highly revered.  Bibles depict God in human terms as a Father God who has Children through HIS SON Jesus Christ as joint heirs and peculiar people. Acts 7:55-60 in Bible says Stephen on the earth saw heaven opened and Jesus was standing next to God RIGHT Hand. GOD has Arms and Hands like humans sitting on His Throne. Stephen filled with Holy Spirit looks into heaven and saw GLORY of God and Jesus standing on the RIGHT Hand of God. He said I see heaven open and Son of man standing on Right Hand of God. God’s “Right Hand” is BODY part of HIS IMAGE HE created humans to be like HIMSELF. GLORY of God surrounds Throne yet Stephen saw Jesus physically standing beside God’s RIGHT HAND.free-bible-studies-online-great-white-throne-judgementPsalm’s 103:13 parental image requests God to be kind, gentle but HIS IMAGE is a FATHER and not a woman as mother. It is true both men and women share 80% physical features as human beings but have unique differences identifying them as male and females. FATHER GOD has HIS Son God Jesus confirming to the people in Bible texts, God is Our Father. JESUS calls God Abba FATHER and God has 44 physical appeared literally face to face to humans confirming God as a MAN. If God does not answer a human need HE is accused of sleeping in Bible, Psalms 44:24 but God does not slumber or sleep. Entire Bible portrays God of Israel’s Image in HIS creation and God watches over Israel without slumber. Greek medieval, modern assumption is God is different not human but Bible texts says God is a literal Man as Jesus said. God is a FATHER  in same way as a human father. God said, if you know to give good gifts to your children, HOW MUCH MORE GOD YOUR FATHER is very pleased to give you what you desire. It is written in Matthew 7:11 and Luke 11 : 13, if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children how much more will your FATHER in heaven give good things to you. The good things God gives is HIS LOVE for HIS Children and earthly good gifts including Holy Spirit to His Children. So necessary to respect God to honour HIM as Male not female. God is definable so important Christians remember the definitive revelation of God in the Word of God is Jesus Christ. We are to pray to “Our Father God” as Jesus taught us to stop reckless attitude of humans towards the Spiritual God. As humans have flesh so God’s Spirit, soul body, HIS breath in man, not mere clay. God is SPIRIT but Has a HUMAN nature in people of flesh and spirit. So possible to manifest HIS PRESENCE in mankind as fellow human beings as HE CHOOSES to do so. And 59% YouGov survey agree GOD IS A MAN but 41 per cent of British Christians think that God has no human gender but most refer to God as Male. A professor of the Christian living history, Diarmaid MacCulloch, told the  Times: unconventional thinking of Image of God as Male is around since Christianity first emerged. God is a Male like Jesus’ DEITY, SOVEREIGN, IMMORTAL. God’s DNA component within mankind in HIS IMAGE and LIKENESS. God’s SUPERIOR Image in humans help to see, hear, feel, think, talk, relate, love because God is LOVE. God’s DNA Image and likeness is represented in defined life principles to obey, be humble, forgive, be generous. GOD’S TRAITS maginify image of God in humans inherited through Christ Jesus. Justin Welby said God is not a male or a female in the human sense of the word and human language is ‘inadequate’ to describe HIM. Justin Welby talks about the division in today’s society based on gender issues. The feminist movement wants equality with men now extended to God causes this views on such things. God as a Male Patriarch requires men in societies to reach out to love their wives as Christ loved the Church of God. Jesus is the Male POWER God manifested in a Greco-Roman world, males are lord and king. Women, ladies, Queens God made with authority of God rule like men. 1542973799317-452672964.jpgJustin Welby said God is not a male or a female in the human sense of the word and human language is 'inadequate' to describe him God’s Gender does not CHANGE because world is different. FATHER GODMAN is described as “archaic terms,” by Church of England’s article of religion that God is ‘without body part or passion. Official teaching: catechism of Catholic church says HE is not wo/man HE is God. MALE LOVES all females too but Archbishop of Canterbury’s Christian Deity no Gender is archaic because some people prefer gender neutral. Bible texts of GODMAN has body so important for distinction in academic circle’s agender. God’s Gender in biological terms is based on a specific state of Jesus’ circumcision, genitalia as Male. Jesus’ physical features consistent with His genetics and physical features match heavenly DNA. This is why angel overshadowed Virgin Mary to conceive GOD’S SON Jesus. Bible texts recognize God created in the beginning male and females in Genesis two sexes used. But gender social construct masculinity or femininity is role people perform. Bible says women as weaker sex so men help them. GOD’S MALE identity confirmed in 1 Kings 22:19 by Micaiah says “Hear WORD of the LORD I saw the LORD God Sitting on HIS Throne and all host of heaven standing by HIM on HIS RIGHT Hand and on HIS left. 20 And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, to go to Ramothgilead? They said this or other on the matter. 21 Then came a spirit and stood before the LORD and said, I will persuade him. 22 And the LORD said to him how? And he said, I will go as a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And HE said, go persuade him and prevail as you do so. 23 Therefore, the LORD put a lying spirit in the mouth of all HIS prophets spoke to deceive him due to his idolatory (judgement of Elijah Naboth’s vineyard). 24 Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went to slap Micaiah on the cheek and said, which Spirit of the LORD spoke to you? 25 Micaiah said you will see it that day, when you go into an inner chamber to hide. Micaiah’s vision is accurate so Ahab died despite lies of 400 false prophets. Micaiah’s ACCURATE description of God on HIS Throne seen in heaven shows Micaiah knows God is Male described on HIS Throne with all on ‘Right and Left Hand.’ Bible on God’s Gender had 170 texts as Father so one cannot be FATHER unless one is Male. God CHOSE reveals HIMSELF to people as MALE. Masculine pronoun often used in Bible refers to God. Jesus Christ calls God Father several times as Masculine to refer to God. In the Bible Christ used term Father directly to refer to God 160 times. Christ said in John 10:30, “I and the Father are one as Jesus Christ came in human form a man to die on cross tp pay for sins of the world. Like God our Father, Jesus was revealed in male form and Bible records numerous instances. From Acts to Revelations 900 verses use Theos as HIS Masculine noun in Greek directly to refer to God consistent with pattern of HIS Masculine titles, nouns, pronouns for GODMAN.’ HE CHOSE the Masculine form to reveal HIMSELF to mankind. Jesus Christ’s masculine titles, nouns, and pronouns is a Male on earth. Prophets in Old Testament and apostles of New Testament refer to God or Jesus Christ with Masculine NAMES and titles. GODMAN reveals WHO HE IS to help us understand HIM not to box God to limit HIM genderless. So it is so inappropriate an Archbishop of Canterbury’s Christian Deity’s Gender ‘archaic’ prefers gender neutral reject HIM PATRIACHALISTIC.1542823708420-1104846375.jpgDegendentrificationdysmorphia of our FATHER God tries to overlook Biblical Supernatural overwhelming proof texts showing God’s Male Body of importance for distinction in the academic circles in terms HIS gender. In 1 Kings 2:2, David told son Solomon, “Be strong and show yourself a man.” David’s advice reflects gender seen as Moses instructs, Joshua  be strong and valiant in Deuteronomy 31:7, be strong or valiant. Deuteronomy 22:5 gender boundary says woman not wear a man’s apparel or the man wear woman’s clothing because these things are abhorrent to God. So Ancient Israel significantly kept gender roles reflected in Bible prohibition against male-male anal intercourse in Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, “a man must not lie with another man like a woman.” Males to act and be treated like men in ancient Israel, men were masculine and women feminine. As God is Man in Bible an explicit Male imagery describes God. The Song of the Sea in Exodus 15:3 says God is a MAN of war, JEHOVAH Nissi is HIS NAME. God is KING in Bible in Isaiah 44:6, God the KING of Israel is the Redeemer, Jehovah LORD of Hosts. Psalms 24:10 asks, WHO is the KING of GLORY? Jehovah of hosts is the KING of GLORY! Selah. Bible texts express God’s maleness in the Semitic language, Hebrew verbs respects God’s Gender. Hebrew noun is masculine and feminine appropriate gender verb or an adjective used. But “you” refers to both male or female. But כָּתַבְתָּ (katavta), and כָּתַבְתְּ (katavt) is written to distinguish a female and male. Unlike German, Greek the Hebrew language has no neutral gender so all items have a grammatical gender of masculine or feminine.  For example a table is, שֻׁלְחָן (shulkhan) is masculine, but a bow, קֶשֶׁת (qeshet) is feminine. God in the Bible is Masculine, relevant for God’s representations. God compares woman in childbirth in Isaiah 42:14 to show HIS Maternal side. Strong scholarly consensus says that God is a non gender entity so can’t be a male or  female as a Deity monosex. This is the contradiction in terms of these scholars suggesting though God is grammatically masculine has no bearing on Gender of God. Linguistic studies say its incorrect grammatical gender but understanding God’s real gender is not a trivial matter. In Bible, God is always a masculine verb or adjective so grammatical fact derives from view of God as a MAN. Description of God absolutely reinforces HE IS MAN not a halfman halfwoman amaphrodite. So GOD creates humankind in HIS OWN IMAGE and LIKENESS as MAN/KIND.1542913327402-452672964.jpg1542823582587-452672964.jpg1542873791468-452672964.jpg1542823799699-1840475426.jpgGod of the Creation Story is Male and Masculine view of God as KING is stated in Isaiah and Psalms as used in Garden of Eden in Genesis 1:1-2:4. The Bible confirms the Powerful God in the masculine grammatical forms as other male kings. God’s massive creations of the world is like other king’s significant building projects familiar with a king’s roles. In Genesis 1:26, נַֽעֲשֶׂה אָדָם, “let us make humans in OUR Image,” refers to God as KING consulting members of HIS royal court. The text depicts God a KING consulting royal counselors is heaven so include Jesus and angels. Androgynous God is another point of view made by using Genesis 1:27, God created man in HIS Image in the Image of God did HE create male and female did HE create them. This verse shows God is a MALE KING but men father female daughters so people are created male and female in God’s image. Genesis 1:27 verse in the Bible. God creates people in His Image to bear on God’s Male gender as Jesus told us. The Bible passages shows God provides solace ‘as a mother comforts her child.’ Referring to God as ‘her’ does not mean God’s Male Fatherhood must be abandoned. God has female Children although God’s Deity is viewed as Male and masculine. God is the FATHER of all Creation and all flesh so focus is on the Garden of Eden Image of God a Male in the Bible. The Garden identifies God as Male and Masculine FATHER. Genesis 4:1 describes Eve’s conception of Cain in text as, “God created child.”God as the Father and the Mother’s dual gender identity some have attributed to God. In Genesis and Isaiah 42:5-43:10 there is maternal side of God’s feminine caring nature of  male and masculine depicted. Isaiah 42:14 depicts God as the ‘female’ woman giving birth. But I kept silent too long I Kept still and restrained Myself so WILL scream like a woman in labour and I will pant and I will gasp. God is like panting woman in labour, whose breath force can wreak havoc on the world in Isaiah 42:15. For hills and heights will I scorch, to cause all their green to wither I will turn rivers into isles, and dry the marshes up. Passages in Isaiah 40-66 God woman synonymous with the prophet Isaiah living during the Babylonian exile depicting God as a woman. Motherly Image God complex complicates picture of Gender of God in the Bible to some people. God’s Gender in Bible recognizes God as the LOVING Father like mortal father’s love for their children. God is NOT, a “wholly other,” whose HUMAN IMAGE is created in all humans. Noah story in Genesis 6:6 God regrets HE made man on earth, and HIS heart was saddened. They saw are God as a MAN with manly habits so, the biblical God’s gender recognize that in the Bible God speaks with a multiple voices of God and metaphors. Brevard Childs (1923-2007), biblical scholar, Yale University and Yale Divinity School said: The entire Bible portrays God of Israel’s Image in all HIS creations sustained by grace. God watches over Israel without slumber. Bible on political correctness recognises some people don’t have clear sexual identity or orientation due to the health reasons. Bible’s interpretation on new meanings notes and respect them. But God remains relevant and crucial as the ULTIMATE MALE role model above all men. to recognize differences. The Bible depicts God Male so HE is NOT a gender-neutral, genderless but gender inclusive. Men are not pressured to be neutral genders before an acceptance as fathers to their children. Why demand GOD denounces HIS GENDER as OUR FATHER before HE is good enough to be accepted by HIS creation. And Romans 1 warns about the changes of turning truth into a lie and turning lies into truth. God has given up people to their reprobate mind to do as they please out of freewill. But one day will face God to give an account of how they mislead people. GOD LOVES all HIS people so no respecter of persons based on gender.

HOLYGHOST POWERCHURCH

Almighty God Jehovah Nissi’s MIGHTY POWER strikes fear in the enemies that tremble at HIS fearful WONDERS when they hear about victory won for God’s Children. Daniel was protected by God’s POWER from the lion’s and from a fire heated seven times that killed soldiers stoking the fire but did not singe Daniel is among miracles. The Ark of covenant kept in an idol temple caused dagon to fall and break to pieces. The Holy Ghost POWER works through Jesus, disciples, and Churches empowered who believe to save people, heal the sick and deliver people from demons by casting out evil spirits in Name of Jesus. God’s MIGHTY POWER is used to build lives to restore people from bondage, afflictions or evil covenants. GOD’S MIGHTY POWER also is known to destroy Koresh and insolent rebellious friends talking against Moses by opening ground to swallow them all with their families. Though some cried to God and were spared. Elisha has used God’s POWER to kill children mocking his bald head eaten by bears he called to devour them. Paul and Peter manifest POWER of God in ministry to the extent Simon the sorcerer thought he can buy God’s POWER to show off to people vain glory. God’s POWER is desired by some people facing accusations of witchcraft mixed with belief and faith practices of God by some disciples. Authentic faith in God in Christ is confused with those using witchcraft activities to activate so-called miracles. Its important, necessary to successfully deal with accusations to set people free. God’s POWER is not for sale in witchcraft coven to compromise worship and service to God if mammon is the source of dangerous power. Bible warns of the angels of light performing the counterfeit miracles and wonders, calling fire from heaven but Jesus said beware of them. They will plead with Jesus, we did it in your name, but Jesus rejects them and says depart from me you doers of evil. And Elijah told God’s people not to hop in- between God and idols. So if God truly, exclusively, LORD choose God alone not both at the same time. Church’s hold onto selfprotection against evil attacks from witches and wizards causes their accusers to brag of control of such churches. So challenge and accuse them openly to respond or to deny sources of power. The church of satan declares their source of power is from satan seen by all know what they stand for. Spiritualist Church externally has Christian logos, decorations, Cross, pictures of Jesus, a holy water, worship God, mix ‘transfiguration’ with invoking spirits in air to give psychic messages to members of congregation from the dead relatives. This types of practice admits new age applications as part of religious experience but do not think that makes them evil as they help people to ‘know’ future predictions. Some accuse other Christian Churches supposed to live by Godly principles alone practising a false religion founded on deception. Spiritual circumstantial proof misunderstood or imagined evidence in some cases. The witnesses cannot easily share secrets or dismissed. Regular rituals imposed on pastor ensure incantation power works or sexual immorality is chosen method using members for sacrifices, death tax category is hidden from view but inner circle denies ‘satan’ accuser of brethren targeting the righteous people of God. In response to an accusation message, first the Church must discern the nature of accusation, source, purpose or evidence provided. Witchcraft practices if alive in Church Christian faith mixes traditional rituals of the community. Some pastors, reverends have a shrine at home, uses fetish in the home, travels with it in clothes or ties it around arms, waists and legs. The pastors often make statement revealing belief, involvement with witchcraft. Parishioners see use of fetish hidden in seclude corner of office by doors, wall, concealed underground in close proximity to important building pastors after visit to witchdoctor shrine for consultation. Or send ‘go-betweens’ to seek counsel on their behalf. The shy ones use a ministry assistant, spouse, friends or parishioners. Some pastors threaten enemies with evil witchcraft retaliation. The deeply involved pastors consult local, regional spirits. Prosperity gospel proclaiming independent church pastors travel for consultations. Clergy reports includes presents of animal and human sacrifices. Some pastors go out at night to carry out secret assignments as part of condition required to gain the power to be rich and famous to attract people to follow them. So the question is why is there need for a pastor ordained by the Living God to seek power from a source contrary to the Spirit of God. The people of God saw miracles but asked Aaron to make a golden calf to worship. As Moses went up the mountain, people of God in the valley already forgot God’s Goodness in crossing the red sea. Some doubt God’s LOVE in Christ in miracles falsely alluded to power of Beelzebub.

If Attention is FOCUSED more on God’s POWER FIRST so focus on human needs supplied by God’s Will demand increase LOVE of God not witchcraft magic. And a few mindbending spells craved to do fake miracles is not God approved so irrelevant. Towering evidence of idols, witches’ charms, lotions and the potions administered by humans is considered more powerful than praying to invisible unseen God. Looks like being not heard by God quickly leads people to seek an alternative instant results. So something felt or touched as their point of contact reassures them but is not fullproof good success. The result lasts for a while until more top up of ritual repeated reinforce power to repeat a cycle for generations. As pressure mounts on society for more materialist competitive fewer resources selfishness leads greedy in clique lodges affiliations, brotherhoods, illuminati all have solidarity code to control domains to rule and subdue others. In the same way, divide and ruled societies require a loyalty to secret cult members for the privileges of resources, class and status. Attention on members to recruit more to maintain flow of funds and resources abide by secret codes for promotion. So the new members take some time to be included in the highest level if reliable to the seniors. By the time they are now fully fledged members and sucked into an initiation ritual it’s too late to leave. A daredevil leader threatens them with death or retaliation if they leave. Fear is instilled in members who invest time or money for years fooled by a discovery of evil. This urge to control all people at all times so witchcraft terms conditions of rituals include sleeping  Often a guise of spirit of unity of ‘one accord’ like the day of Pentecost is used to blackmail the ones refusing to conform. Any person challenging authority of spiritual abuse labeled Jezebel or Jonah so spewed out. Does this mean all churches depend on power of witches or wizard as if God’s Authority, Power no longer available to believers? Not really, because God told Moses Levites did not bow to golden calf just as the 7000 faithful people refused to bow in Elijah’s day to Jezebel’s idols. Righteous men and women devoted to God faithfully serve God in Spirit and in Truth. Congratulations to all the faithful believers appreciated, standing strong in the midst of adversity. Few badapples mislead naive people who do not know deeper things behind scenes. Endtime is approaching for rapture so important to know where one stands with God. Bible says even the very elect can be deceived if not careful and alert. All must watch and pray to be sure their salvation is in Christ Jesus in God. In Acts 8:9-25 Simon the Sorcerer for some time followed and observed God’s POWER at work desired power to buy without an understanding of direct connection to God in Christ. It is a similar mindset today that things of faith in God like a pick and mix sweet shop. A little bit of this and a little bit of that faith trend is popular for thinking all roads leads to heaven. ABSOLUTE POWER OF Authority from God vested in Christ alone approved by God is the authentic power at work through Jesus Christ. Simon the Sorcerer recognised a true POWER different from the sorcery familiar spirit he used. The man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city amazed people with counterfeit magical powers. Until he crossed paths with the servants of God and now wanted God’s POWER for working miracles. Instead of repenting, casting away evil spirits and asking forgiveness from God he wanted to combine both to deceive people. And in Acts 8:18 when Simon saw the Spirit was given through laying on of hands he wanted to buy that power. But God’s POWER is not for sale, never will be for freely given and freely received to the GLORY of GOD ALMIGHTY. Simon saw the Spirit was imparted when apostles laid their hands on people, so offered them money to buy God’s POWER. How much can anyone pay for God POWER? How much do you have worthy of God’s POWER when Jesus paid Ultimate price with His life and BLOOD to set us free!!! Seek first, Kingdom of God’s salvation in Christ, all these things are added by God for HIS GLORY and TESTIMONIES of the BLOOD of the Lamb Jesus defeats devil.

DOES GOD ANSWER PRAYER?

IT IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH

The American President Donald Trump explains statement against Africans: “If after 50 years of independence you did not build necessary infrastructure for people, are you humans? “If you sit on gold, diamond, oil, manganese, uranium and your people don’t have any food are you humans? “If in power, you buy weapons from strangers to kill your citizens, are you humans? “If your social project is stay in power for life, are you being human? “If you despise and shoot your own citizens like game, who will respect them? If you take all the resources for development of your country for your personal property are you humans? if you leave the country’s healthcare unattended to treat yourself abroad are you humans? “Until your leaders think less of themselves and more about your people. You are not human but animal.” These statements show lack of economic independence for African nations still suffering under cumbersome exploitation. Past slavery and colonial domination by generations by usurped rulers is responsible for the evils suffered. African resources are exchanged for the white man’s guns and products seen as superior to locally made goods and foods. Imbalance of trade means Africans not paid enough so get the IMF loans to buy more guns. Some whites now discover what their ancestors did to Africans in the name of being “merchants” and the “scientific explorers. Some are very shocked and horrified by their damage done to the Africans in history. One cannot inherit enmity and hatred because ALMIGHTY GOD IS ULTIMATE OWNER AND JUDGE to deal with injustice done to Africans. Its the reason God sent Jesus non white to sort out injustice on the earth at the right time. Christianity is from Iraq also known as Babylonia through Abraham from UR near Nineveh. Jesus is from the Middle East and a Jewish man who gave His Life to save those who BELIEVE BY FREEWILL CHOICE to love and accept Jesus as Saviour. So Caucasians are not the SOURCE of Christianity. If you read history missionaries are different from slave traders incited by Belgian king or other kings and queens who sponsored European merchants.IMG_20181024_105615.jpgBe wise and careful in your response to evil treatments meted out to Africans by other countries. Do not base your life or faith on hatred to spread fear, anger or discord. Love God and love people and it is best to agree to disagree. Anger and no amount of hatred stops evil people to change to do good but every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord. The evil people will face God in judgement as world events show Jesus is coming soon so be ready for Rapture not arguments. Christianity is based in FAITH IN GOD IN CHRIST not fights or arguments. God does not force people to follow HIS SON JESUS YET ALL RICHES, WEALTH BELONG TO GOD. And before feeling personally exclusively as owner to insult exploiters, remember a lack of spirit of unity among all Africans causes fights over resources to allow others to take it over. Divide and rule conquered Africa with factions led by the West and China. So will never apologise because it means they admit responsibility for underdevelopment of Africa. To admit they destroyed Africa means admitting guilt and responsiblity. So Africans will demand compensation for all the years duped to RETURN ALL GOODS to them. This will strip West naked so they will never do si because if Africans collect resources, artefacts, receive overdue compensation then the West will go bankrupt . This is why they remain as leeches sucking life out of Africa. They will not hand over Africa back to them on a silver platter. Neither do Africans have right to insult current generations in West not responsible for ancestor’s past actions. The best solution is that you celebrate your culture, value your life, do something good, farm, help old people, cook, sell the natural resources fairly to benefit Africa too. The best thing Africans can do is to HELP EACH OTHER. Do not wait for those enjoying your wealth to return it to you, they will never do so. Being angry and frustrated will not help you because they will not surrender to you so they starve. African leaders tried in the past to unite and to defeat them through Organisation Of African Unity (OAU) in vain. Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela, Patrick Lumumba and others were killed or jailed to suppress them. Based on Word of God Africans must humble themselves to seek God’s Face, repent so GOD WILL HEAL THE LAND, FORGIVE Africans and return wealth exploited to them. Exploiters do not care about well-being of Africans so do not try to fight spiritual wickedness in high places with guns. The African’s battle is the LORD’S so its not a human problem, it is satan’s root of LOVE OF MONEY WHICH IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. WHAT WAS THE WORLD WARS ABOUT? WAS IT NOT OVER DISPUTED TERRITORIES, OTHER PEOPLE’S LANDS AND THEIR RESOURCES? Love pleasure more than LOVE God do not love fellow human beings. Travel the whole world to collect things, resources of everyone, waste it or bury perfectly good foods to deprive and starve other people using food as weapons of population controls. This is witchcraft, no guns or weapons can defeat such history. Anger, hatred, spewed vitriol destroys people, drains, emotionally, wastes time and energy. So do you really think usurpers will return goods when Jesus said the rich exploit others to be richer. Read Revelations 19:15-19 to see how GOD AND JESUS, OWNER OF ALL WEALTH WILL DEAL with them. Stop your anger or hatred and LOVE YOURSELVES even if anyone hates you, do not insult them to change their mind to love you. Two wrongs don’t make things right so call on God to save you.


👍🏿Think about this and share God loves you.

TWOSIDED COIN LIFE/DEATH

Image

Gold solidus bust of Jesus with a cross behind His head holding a Bible minted in Constantinople now Istanbul, Turkey AD 705–711 in Britishmuseum.org. Jesus is Resurrection Life raised in eternity to Reign in infinity with hope of assurance to Christian believers in Christ Jesus of Nazareth for eternal life. This coin is from the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian II (685-711 AD) is the oldest known image. It’s a GOLD solidus, bust of Black Christ (Yeshua). With this coin facing you, notice short beard and most noticeably the hair wearing pallium and colobium, the Gospels in His left hand, cross behind His head. Side by side comparison of a front and back of coin shows Jesus gold bust.

You’ll notice the difference between the two from facial makeup, to hair and size. Now look at the coin to the right. On the left of it is Justinian and Tiberius on the right. Note the dealer, author David R. Sear, DOES indeed provide a Certificate of Authenticity for this coin, with the explanation: “The Portrait on this coin was based on an ICON believed by people of a time to bear miraculous resemblance to Christ’s appearance.” So did Constantinople the Christian king’s gold bust testifies of his Christianity.

Constantine I, AD 307-337. Gold Solidus (4.2g) minted in Nicomedia. Two sided coin shows angel associated with death and life helping in grief afterlife passing of loved ones. Words used in grief helps for good to heal or hurt and succumb to overwhelming pain. And Proverb 18:21 says power of life and death in a tongue strengthens faith in God or weakens it. Two strong emotions surface by a death to mourn with hope in Christ in God for future reunion with loved ones.

Grief or total darkness of loss in without comfort of beloved husband of 15 years, died unexpectedly 8 months February 4, 2018 at 3 am after 5 days, watched him die had significant PTSD symptoms. The days and months were dark inky black despair of lonely rock bottom, lowest bottomless abyss of no way out, stayed alive for son so refused to succumb to suicide. A tiny small moment happiness came 3 or 4 months after death enjoying song on radio, looking at sun thinking its a beautiful when outside. Distinctly first time thought of Chad and nostalgic than dissolve into the massive puddle of tears, mourning loss. Kept waiting to be overcome by tears around 5 months but turning point after things got worse was linear climbing into happiness. Checked into  a mental hospital overwhelmed by grief.  Shortly after seeming acceptance, acts on spiraling grief to prevent it from becoming out of control. Before, simply swallowed up whole in early July. After 9 days in hospital felt much better. Had new perspective sorely lacked, stopped crying daily house sold moved to a new home adored didn’t cry anymore. Had new friends who truly understood loss. Later recalled, ‘Be happy after death not alone thrives in love as the best wife in entire world be in love again wants that for you. Never ever feel guilty or like a betrayal falling in love again. Promise you will date again. If you marry again, know will be so happy for you.Pin imageThose words echo in head for no reason totally suppressed in grief, wasn’t ready to think about new love until then. But a combination of feeling grounded after hospital stay at home crying over loss genuinely happy  his words rang in ears. Met via online dating, and it worked out rather well decided give it a try again. Took deep breath, answered questions on eHarmony, hoped for the best. Bob sent smile next day, “smiled” back to pink “pussy hat” in front of Washington Memorial in DC in midst of a massive crowd at the Women’s March intrigued! Had beard as into beards, like his at 54, age appropriate. Struck up a short conversation and agreed to meet for breakfast on date. Not impressed but flashed back on New Year’s Resolution included open mind not judgmental. He texted asking me on a second date less than 5 minutes after left the parking lot from first date. Decided liked that much means, chemistry there so said yes. The second date was much better and third better, fell deeply in love. Shocked now believes in life after grief unambiguous in a way Bobby is man needed, the man wanted, more amazingly, the man Chad wanted for me. Interestingly, Chad and Bobby different men. Both love fiercely, purely, deeply, without conditions, and go to the ends of the earth for love. And decided to get married. So why wait? Is it societal expectations? Fully believe in doing what makes happy by marrying Bobby as ridiculously happy. Its 8–1/2 months Chad died as widow would have judgmental secretly widow didn’t truly love deceased husband. Or making an impulsive, stupid decision will regret. A decision not based in reality. Learned over time ’till death do part’ free, gained new perspective and empathy to love by the permission of late husband. Some widows could not  date immediately and remarry or wait decades. Configuration in- between deep enduring happiness with another man 8 months happened, not ashamed of. Enduring deep love for Chad and to be husband tremendously respectful not threatened by the love of Chad. So 2018 is utterly, horrendously horrific in many ways with beautiful ending. Still cries or grieves at son’s first band competition  so bent over a fence sobbing Chad was not there to see son’s band competition, always at every single one not there hit very hard. Grief is sharp, acute, present but present love, tremendously blessed in love twice, deep love defying words of pain and grief so more grateful.

Henry-VIII-angel-coin

Henry VIII of England’s Angel gold coin measuring 29mm, with a weight of 5.12 grams. This was among the King’s first coinage struck at the Tower, Royal Mint.

The legend around the coin: HENRIC VIII DI GRA REX AGL Z FR around the image of the Archangel Michael slaying the Dragon.

PER CRVCE TVA SALVA NOS XPC REDE. A ship bearing the royal shield and cross, the letter “H” and rose flanking cross.

Elizabeth-I-angel-coin

Queen Elizabeth I’s gold angels differed little from Father’s her name positioned right of Archangel’s depiction minted between 1578 and 1581. At Kenilworth in 1575 Queen Elizabeth I often publicly prepared for healing ritual associated with Angel coins ‘prostrate on knees, body and soul rapt in prayer.’ Known to lay hands on subjects, and made sign of cross, with gold angel, over location of sore or affliction. The inscription on the reverse side of her Angel coins read in Latin: “This is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous” for healing itself or words spoken by then-princess Elizabeth upon learning of death of older sister Queen Mary I to make her Queen of England!

angelot-France-coin

An angel example issued by King Henry VI as king of France. The coin weighed 2.34 grams and was struck between the years 1427-1449. The legend: HENRICVS: FRANCORV: AND: A(nglia): REX. Image of Archangel Gabriel over coats of arms of France and England. On reverse, the legend: XPE: VINCIT: XPE: REGNAT: XPE: IMPERAT’s simple cross flanked by a lily and leopard. People literally used death coins Chanol obol to pay the river crossing toll in afterlife. Others used the coins hold eyes shut during funerals. So yet again the expression of death has a function of duality just as life after grief is a double-sided. One remembers loved one’s memories but continues to live in the here and now simultaneously. And gratitude continues to increase in value  as study after study has found a robust association between higher gratitude and wellbeing. Protection from stress and depression, fulfilling relationships, better sleep and greater resilience.” It can be a simple spending part of every day for two weeks writing a list of three things for which grateful. “As pages in diary fills up with a scribbled gratitude started to find concept less vomitous, so Sarner wrote. After four weeks counting gratitude keeps doing it. Even in a midst of death and grief can find joyful ending of pain and suffering, gratitude of years spent together, privilege of medical care and ability to see and bury loved one as friends gather to support or help family, memorial service, giving thanks to God for the gift of eternal life IN CHRIST and worship God, sing songs praising God use Psalms and Bible verses to reinforce trust in God. Faith comes by hearing the word of God, do not let grief overwhelm you to destroy you. Commit family into God’s Hands to protect you from further evil destructions and to cover you with Jesus BLOOD in JESUS NAME.

Gary and his two childrenGary Andrews with daughter Lily (11) and son Ben (eight) unexpectedly death lost partner of 19 years. His 41-year-old wife Joy died suddenly about a year ago. Over the last 12 months discovered for him, the answer is doodling – a doodle a day to cope with grief. Gary, animator and illustrator worked on Fireman Sam and for Disney, began his doodle diary, shared on social media on 55th birthday in 2016. Uses digital media at night to do little sketch based on things happening daily.” Following her death, 27 October:Gary's first doodleImage copyrightGARY ANDREWSGary's second doodleImage copyrightGARY ANDREWSGary's third doodleImage copyrightGARY ANDREWSGary's fourth doodleImage copyrightGARY ANDREWS. His week started with wife waving him off at Heathrow Airport on a Monday for a work trip to Canada. A few days feeling ill with flu-like symptoms, Joy was taken to hospital on Thursday with suspected kidney infection, condition deteriorated rapidly. On the Friday at 03:15 she died from multiple organ failure caused by sepsis. Gary, in the departure lounge in Vancouver waiting for emergency flight home, was told when he landed back in the UK. He had lost the woman he had been married to for 13 years, the person he describes as his best friend, and the mother of his two children Lily, then 10, and Ben, seven. At times a rollercoaster up and down sadness or joy depending on triggers of a music, favourite foods, scents friends, activities. Despite the pain must remain to live for that person too who wishes a happy life for loved ones after passing. It’s important to try for their sake to pull through and smile again, eat, dress well and begin living again. First few days of bereavement of grief, worse; sudden change of direction by unexpected death forces one to make life without the loved ones. God’s angels surround us to help with the family sent from God the Comforter. The Holy Spirit helps grief to be borne in hope through assurance of eternal life in resurrection. There is no specific formula for grief or sorrow so people deal with pain in their own way meaningful to them. Do what you can, ask friends and family to help with any issues made complex by death. It’s not weakness to ask for help and do not wait for people to “offer” help first because they may feel like giving you a private space to grief. Talk about loved ones, laugh over their jokes, keep on in life do not stop living because they want you to be happy even grieving for them.An photo of George smiling while looking at Harriet

George Shelly on his sister’s death says “There are no rules when it comes to grief it’s about doing what feels right for you.” One thing that massively helped me is learning how vital exercise is for mental health. I started exercising when I started getting angry, towards the end of last year. I was punching walls in fits of rage and had load of broken knuckles and scabs, a mess taking frustration and force out on objects and on myself. So started doing meditation in my room, and went to yoga classes, a brother Will, who is a marine, taught me how to lift weights and it’s made me feel so much better mentally. I’d go into the gym with a knot of frustration, anger and turmoil in my stomach, and leave feeling it was untied. The documentary made about grief was trying to come to terms with Harriet’s death. When I started filming, I couldn’t say Harriet’s name out loud without breaking down. It was intense and so damn hard. But hearing other people’s stories of grief, and how they dealt with it, is part of learning how you deal with it yourself. And I learnt that it’s important to allow yourself to feel vulnerable, to accept the crutches that work for you or for antidepressants see a psychiatrist. There is no right way of dealing with this pain you need to know there is support out there, and to not be afraid to ask for it. GEORGE SHELLEY on BBC THREE shared his experience with mental health as it’s something I never thought in a billion years I had to deal with. Through shock, you question what life is a lot. When you have that much of a dramatic change in life, you change. You look in mirror and you’re faced with different person. Losing Harriet is something I am going to deal with for the rest of my life. I feel her smiling with me wherever I am. Her birthday is Christmas day so my future kids will know it’s Christmas, but that it’s also Auntie Harriet’s birthday. We’ll keep saying name keep to remember.Photographer Mandi Knepp surprised Jessica with a final picture side-by-side with her fianceMandi Knepp wanted to show strength so brave for self and others but knew Kendall will not come back after death.

Ever since his 25-year-old estate agent daughter Suzy disappeared, believed murdered, July 28 1986, he displays stoic dignity even though hers has been one of the most high-profile and enduring cases of a missing person in recent times. Thirty years on, Mr Lamplugh says: “Time passes. You move on. I don’t picture her or daydream about her. Diana and I brought it to an end when we held a press conference at Scotland Yard to announce that we felt we had done all we could to find her. “You can go on to destroy your life and other people’s lives,” he adds. “Take control over your life again, we imagined she would have said, ‘You have done enough,’ while it doesn’t stop you thinking don’t agonise.’ No trace of his daughter was ever found and no one has ever tried or convicted of her murder. He won’t say if he thinks Cannan or anyone else is to blame. “It was a good lead. It may be right, I don’t know. The fact is, she is never going to come back and that is the way it is,” he said. “My grandchildren may know they had an Aunt Susan who mysteriously vanished 30 years ago,” he admits, “but I have never talked to them about it. My wife Diana and I determined the lives of our other children Richard, 57, Tamsin, 54, and Lizzie, 47, would not suffer as a result of our loss. Suzy herself always believed life was for the living. It was one of the last things she said to Diana before she disappeared.

Shirley HellyarTerminally ill Miss Hellyar wants to stay in Newcastle where she has lots of her friends. This terminally ill woman who had hoped to raise £5,000 to pay for her funeral has smashed her target. Shirley Hellyar, 40, from Glasgow, thought she beat cancer travelled to Newcastle to celebrate her 40th birthday this month. However, while visiting friends suffered chest pains and scan revealed condition was terminal. An online fund has raised £5,570 so far. Ms Hellyar is in a hospice in Newcastle with weeks left to live. She was diagnosed with the lymphoblastic lymphoma in 2017 as a tumour detected in her lung. Early September this year, she said the tumour had shrunk and she was well enough to travel to Newcastle where she lived for years and used to work as a sexual health worker. Miss Hellyar is in St Oswald’s Hospice in Newcastle, where she wants to remain and be close to friends. She said: “The kindness people show is unbelievable so has reinstated my faith in humanity.” More than 250 people donated to the fund to help her parents Elizabeth and Gordon pay for her funeral, as well as travel costs. Message of support offered to provide services at funeral or places for her family to stay in Newcastle. Val Campbell called it a “tragic situation” so Martin Robson said he was moved to tears. He wrote to Miss Hellyar: “I can’t imagine what you are going through but I wish you love and more. Holding your hand from afar.” If you believe in God you know that in year King Uzziah died, Isaiah saw GOD Sitting ON HIS Throne in heaven, looking like a man in Isaiah 1:1 in Bible. Isaiah’s grief over the king’s death made him seek Face of God more than ever before. GOD Comforts people through Holy Spirit comforter so lifted above sin and sorrow into PRESENCE of the LORD. And King David encouraged himself in the LORD in time of adversity and sorrow. Grief is an occasion people run to God, churches are full if disaster strikes. People recognise their human limitations and need a Saviour so turn to God in pain. Its best time to maintain Covenant with God consistently not only in good times but vulnerable times too. Do not blame God and become angry to denounce reject God for not preventing death of a loved one. It’s not God’s fault so be realistic about circumstances of life and human decay. The devil comes to steals, kill and destroys but God gives eternal life more abundantly so GOD is still in the Throne despite death of loved ones. Eternal life brings reunion of the family and friends to live forever in eternity into infinity. A temporary loss by death is for only a short season in life, compared with joy believer have in Resurrection in Christ to live forever in Jesus Name. GLORY to God.
