THE PROCESS OF DIVORCE

The majority of the arguments centre around the division of assetsDivorce is an unpleasant process more awful when separating couples cannot reach agreement, engage in litigation. Suddenly the love of your life becomes opponent and contributions to marriage is pored over by lawyers and potentially judges. Divorce can become gendered family lawyers will be acutely aware of the unfortunate tendency to refer to the ‘breadwinning husband’ homemaking wife’ This does not reflect the reality of many modern marriages but often it is the wife who undertakes most childcare and domestic duties, while the husband has created most of the wealth for the family. Most people think of the actual divorce as the most stressful element but is resolved fairly swiftly. For most married couples this reflects the basic principle of their union: you are a team, you share responsibilities and funds, and make joint decisions. So what happens if not on the same side? It was a question posed by most cases.workdivorcecomp-medium_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqqVzuuqpFlyLIwiB6NTmJwfSVWeZ_vEN7c6bHu2jJnT8

Millionaire businessman Mr Work was ordered to pay his wife half his £140m fortune in 2015, but fought the court’s decision, saying his wife ‘stayed home’ during 2 decades long marriage, during which she raised their two children. He argued he made all the family’s money and claimed to posses quality of genius enabled him to do this without support of his wife. Court of Appeal disagreed so dismissed Mr Work’s appeal. He must pay half of his fortune to ex wife, after judge accepts she is a ‘good homemaker and good mother,’ adding it was down to her willingness to move to Japan the husband was able to amass his wealth.78630843.jpg

The important decision for stay-at-home mothers raises questions of how judges should consider the spouses’ respective contributions in ‘big money’ divorce cases. Most people think actual divorce most stressful element but is usually resolved fairly swiftly. Majority of the arguments centre around division of assets or some technicalities or division of everything couple collectively own and earned during marriage. England and Wales is known to be one of the most generous jurisdictions there is. London is the divorce capital of world for fairness is central to process and in cases each party’s financial needs are met by the assets available, the starting point for division is 50:50. The Court has wide discretion when making financial orders and considers a range of factors. One factor is the contribution that both the husband and wife made. Thanks to new verdict, it is now settled law there should be no discrimination between breadwinner and homemaker. Staying at home, cooking, cleaning, reading to children is as important as working 12 hours a day on trading floor earning £1m a year. Mothers feel they make special contribution of ‘exceptional quality’ every day. Over the years various arguments used by mostly wealthy husbands to convince courts is award to their spouse to be less than 50 per cent. The favourite known as special contribution involves arguing financial input to marriage was significant award should be increased in their favour. To be successful need to amass significant wealth and show they used ‘exceptional quality’ or ‘genius’ to achieve this.divorce-370559.jpg

What about homemakers? How does this not discriminate against the wife, at home with the children every day? The wife quietly supporting her husband in his endeavours? What about spouse who sacrificed own successful career? Or those who are juggling both a career and childcare? Many mothers no doubt feel they make a special contribution of ‘exceptional quality’ daily. The Court of Appeal has confirmed this principle still stands though many hope it will in due course either limited or abolished by the Supreme Court. Litigation is bad enough without having to rummage into the detail of who did what and when to justify their contribution. In addition to cases where wife receives a substantial lump sum settlement such as Mandy Gray will get. In England and Wales one of the attractive forums in the world is for the financially weaker spouse paid maintenance for life. This concept is alien to nearby jurisdictions. Just across the border in Scotland, the maximum maintenance term is three years. However, this ‘meal ticket for life’ is becoming rarer. The Court looks at each spouse’s income and earning capacity. Consideration is given to whether or not having a qualification worked recently or assumes childcare responsibilities. The test is whether, in light of all these circumstances payee adjust to their financial independence without undue hardship. Judges want to see hard evidence of efforts of receiving party to maximise earning capacity.Family.jpg
Some wives may think its unfair if was agreed during the marriage that they would be supported financially and made sacrifices to this effect. Others may welcome opportunity to re-enter the working world; potentially a new lease of life after divorce. Although returning to work, for women, is unduly tough – despite the glut of ‘returnships’ now on offer from big companies. What is clear is society moves on so does the family law. Undoubtedly the problem is focus continues to be trying to achieve fairness for both husbands and wives. One imagines Ms Gray would agree that this has been achieved.

5 things about divorce Ayesha Vardag

1. It takes longer and be more harrowing than you think.

If everything can be agreed then it is possible for a case to be resolved in a few weeks but more likely exchanging disclosure, attending court hammering out a settlement will take around a year, and often more, and it can really wear you down. It is a marathon endeavour so important to keep your spirits up.

2. Ending marriage and finance issues are completely separate.

The reasons for the marriage ending will almost never affect the financial outcome and the court will not punish a spouse for marital indiscretions.

3. Courts less glamorous than you imagine.

Most English courts mahogany-panelled Victorian masterpieces, but most poorly maintained post-war monstrosities with hot, airless waiting rooms and windows that do not open, where you wait for hours on end, the tension is unbearable. Arbitration or a private family dispute resolution offers chance to move case to salubrious surroundings to settle it.

4. Nothing is “off the record”.

You are required to be fully frank about finances so lawyers are not allowed to help hide assets or lie to partner. To courts, honesty really is the best policy.

5. Can be cathartic experience.

Many people assume that divorce is an upsetting business. While it is never easy to bring a marriage to an end, for many the chance to move forward and build a new chapter of their life can be a rejuvenating experience. Usually the clients get happier, stronger and visibly empowered as process goes forward. Above all during the divorce ongoing conflict between parents can affect the children’s mental health, development of social and emotional skills, academic attainment and can impact their ability to form future relationships. It can also damage physical health, lasting through their adult lives into next generation as it starts early. Agreeing to disagree for the sake of the children is very helpful.

PASTOR IS ATHEIST’S SON

Miraculously the son of atheist becomes pastor of the living God, serving Christ Jesus his Master and Saviour. A secular media reported Madalyn Murray O’Hair was that atheist who got Bible reading kicked out of public schools. A national hero to atheist as Supreme Court ruled in her favour in 1963. A year earlier the Supreme Court prohibited government sponsored prayer in schools. And after O’Hair won her case 1964 Life magazine profile referred to her “the most hated woman in America.” Secularists went so far as to say that historic ruling placed U.S. on vanguard of change to morality with rationalism over superstition. She spouted liberal agenda, reporters were willing to overlook murmurings about the psychological abuses towards her children and employees at American Atheists organization. When rumours surfaced of skimming tens of thousands of dollars from non-profit, investigative journalists turned attention elsewhere. The latest gloss on Madalyn mystique applied in Netflix movie portrayed her as a doting mother and dedicated civil rights activist, eldest son said.

Supernaturally, is absolutely a miracle William Murray III knew that the real Madalyn churl who bullied her children bragged to very young about watching X-rated movies was saved. She was an ardent feminist who resented men, Bill says. “One of her favorite stories I have heard her repeat it many times is that when I was born and the doctor told her, ‘It is a boy,’ she asked him if there wasn’t some way he could put it back,” Bill told People magazine. She bit him, smashed his model airplane to pieces in a fit of rage, and ridiculed his attempts to play baseball. She kept a liquor closet full, refrigerator stocked with fattening, unhealthy foods, extolled the virtues of sexual liberty and wrote for the Hustler magazine. She tried to defect to Soviet Union with entire family and supported communist causes, Bill says. As a middle school child in Baltimore, Bill became an unwitting pawn in her 1963 Supreme Court battle against the school prayer. Madalyn sued school district and rode a movement to strike down prayer and Bible reading. With petulant eloquence, tirelessly voiced acrimonious atheism, and media lapped up pretty everything she served. Said, finds Bible nauseating, historically inaccurate, replete ravings of madmen. Finds God sadistic, brutal representation of hatred.”

Madalyn Murray O’Hair on the steps of the Supreme Court with her sons

Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin and Phil Donahue all hosted her on their evening TV programs. Madalyn revels attention. Every misfit in country wrote her letters of praise including generous checks of her non-profit, American Atheists, Bill says. “My mother was evil person, not for removing prayer from America’s schools, no, she was just evil,” Bill wrote online in 2011. Stole huge amounts of money, misused trust of people, cheats children out of parents’ inheritance. She cheated on her taxes and stole from her own organizations.” So Madalyn busied herself with rhetoric, newsletters, fund-raising and publicity,” Bill increasingly disaffected, eloped and divorced, was drafted in the military and worked for an airline. He left his daughter Robin under care of his mother. His second marriage was unraveling had run-ins with police, drifted through struggles, failures so harbours doubts atheistism manifesto. Why did his mother spend non-profit’s money on a new Cadillac and mobile home? Why she sued NASA from airing Astronaut Buzz Aldrin from taking the communion on moon? Why not spend on new X-ray machine for a hospital? If atheism was saviour of modernity why focus on antagonistic role shutting down others? Why not do something in favour of all humanity?

Interestingly started to think is because my mother was basically negative and destructive, he said. Bill turns to alcohol to quash his anxieties and misgivings. Once when police arrived after he had a dispute with his wife, accidentally fired a rifle through door. Bill was charged with aggravated assault and sentenced to five years probation. It was, perhaps, the nadir of his life. The incident served as wake up call. He realized he needed help turned to Alcoholics Anonymous. The support group and a volunteer job at a drug rehab program is where he “found my first awareness of a loving God. I saw some miraculous things people were able to accomplish with faith. And I couldn’t help comparing all that with atheism.” Bill did something his mother would loathe he gave his life to Jesus Christ. He hadn’t spoken to her, however, for years. In 1980 on Mother’s Day, he came out publicly, declaring himself as a Christian. He had not seen his daughter, Robin, in years. When he attempts to call his daughter or brother, hurled insults calling him a traitor and hung up. Bill said, all under a complete control of the monster intoxicated with identity America’s Apostle of Atheism.

With Jon and Robin

Her hubris got worse, her estranged son fired a salvo in favour of Saviour, she launched complete nuclear attack: “One could call this a postnatal abortion on the part of a mother, I guess,” she said, as quoted on Wikipedia. “I repudiate him entirely and completely now and all times, beyond human forgiveness.” Bill’s steps towards Christianity were at first tentative and searching. He didn’t want to line up with any group. But as he studied the Word, he fell in with the Baptists and dedicated his life to undo some of the damage he felt responsible for with his role in the Supreme Court ruling banned Bible reading and prayer. His part played as teenager in removing prayer from public school was criminal he wrote for a newspaper in Austin his mother’s non-profit base and Baltimore where the lawsuit was filed. “I swear on the altar of God that I will strive to right this wrong that I have done. Today, Bill, 70, is a Baptist pastor, and is chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, a non-profit in Washington D.C. fighting for rights of Christians in Islamic and communist countries. His printing press produces Bibles in Russia shortly after communism collapsed old Soviet Union. While Madalyn was alive, Bill travelled to cities there speaking engagements to expose her lies at counter-protests. His opposition did not bring Madalyn down.

Eventually her demise came from her own camp when atheists turned against her. Madalyn liked to hire criminals at the American Atheists headquarters in Austin. Bill says she derived pleasure exercising authority over lawbreakers, maybe she felt kinship with flagrant felons. Whatever the case, she had a dim view of the people she hired. Her diaries called her employees “pimps, whores, hopheads, queers, pinkos, drunks, glue-sniffers and freaks.” She was not known to be sweet employer. In 1993, Madalyn hired David Roland Waters, a convicted felon on parole who had killed a teenager over 50 cents of gasoline when he lived in South Africa. Waters started in the print shop and rose to office manager. As investigators later learned, Waters became part of Madalyn’s fraud schemes. He helped print forged stock certificates in a bid to take over a competing more profitable atheistic organization, Bill said. And he embezzled $54,000 from American Atheists. He claimed he siphoned off the money at the behest off Madalyn’s family in a deal where he would keep a part. Only he was convicted. To distance herself from any implication, Madalyn exposed in public newsletter Waters’ criminal past. She included the morbid details of how he beat his mother in 70s with a broom handle abused her body.

Unsuccessfully meanwhile, Madalyn attempted unsuccessfully to take over the wealthier atheist organization run by James Hervey Johnson in San Diego did not work. And so Johnson’s lawyers retaliated with a $7 million lawsuit in 1993 Madalyn feared would lose. And so According to IRS affidavit, Waters was outraged began to voice “fantasies of killing Madalyn” and torturing her by “snipping off her toes,” the Washington Post reported. She began to liquidate assets and transfer finances abroad, according to her employee David Travis. In the Washington Post, Travis said he accidentally opened letter to Madalyn’s son Jon Garth Murray, which reported $1 million in a New Zealand Guardian Trust. Travis and the other employees expected Madalyn, Jon Robin abscond to the South Seas at any moment. So no one was surprised when on August 28, 1995 a typewritten note appeared on a door of American Atheist headquarters one morning before work. It said: “The Murray-O’Hair family has been called out of town on emergency basis. We do not know how long we will be gone at the time of writing of this memo. So the Austin police were not interested in investigating the missing persons report filed by Bill. Only the IRS wanted to find the threesome for fraud schemes.

During first days of the disappearance, Jon and Robin called American Atheist headquarters, were vague and sounded strained but reported family was OK in San Antonio, Texas. They were not OK. Jon, under duress of kidnappers, bought $500,000 worth of gold coins from a San Antonio jeweler, which he turned over in hopes of earning freedom for family. The kidnappers spent (not all of) the money, according to the FBI, IRS and local police. Instead gaining freedom, the Murray-O’Hairs were murdered in a grisly manner. Bill explained on his website: Madalyn “and my daughter were held for almost 30 days, probably tied and gagged, my brother desperately tried to obtain ransom money. At all times my brother was escorted by one of the kidnappers. My brother was total slave to my mother. He saw himself as her provider and rescuer. All his life she had talked down to him and made fun of him and now, in his mind, he would show her his worth by single-handedly rescuing her. He was murdered for his faithfulness.” Waters and 2 accomplices carefully disposed of corpses that they were not found until Waters himself, finally convicted of murders in August of 2000, led detectives to a Texas ranch where he buried mutilated bodies. The Murray-O’Hair atheists disappeared and unaccounted missing aviator Amelia Earhart except decapitated handless body found in a wooded area near the Trinity River outside Dallas in October 1995. The site showed little blood, which indicated dumped not killed there. The corpse was butchered it was intended to never be identifiable by police.

 

Unidentified for three years without face, fingerprints or clothing, the corpse remained A reporter for San Antonio Express-Newshad researched the case for two years when he got anonymous tip after writing an article on the “town-skipping” atheists. The caller said friend disappeared about the same time when he went to see Waters. Knowing Waters an enemy to family, the reporter alerted police. DNA test proved body belonged to Danny Fry, who joined with another convict in Waters’ kidnapping ring. So arrested and convicted for gruesome murders of Madalyn, Jon, Robin. And  “Did Robin pray to receive Christ as she was bound and gagged? Perhaps,” Bill wrote grimly on his website. “Did my mother or brother cry out to the Lord just before they were murdered? I do not know. Christ is there for the vilest offender. The serial killer whose prayer at the hour of his death is genuine is also forgiven. My mother, my brother and my daughter may well await me in heaven. “On the other hand, they may have stood their ground defying God to the end, spending yet another day of eternity in hell. If that is the case I will never see them again. Bill wonders why atheism does not die with his mother, brother and daughter. Deaths of my mother, brother and daughter should make all too clear the need for Christ to others to renounce atheism,” Bill wrote. Those who follow my mother continue to fight against God and His authority. Fools who mock sin face God’s Wrath judgements in Bible in Proverbs 14:8.

THE MIRACLE GIFT OF ADAM

Emilie Larter and Adam

Emilie’s journey started in September 2014 when the charity volunteering for in Uganda received a call about the new born boy in need. Baby arrived after the burial of a woman who died because of excessive bleeding after birth. So Adam was her child including 6 others yet had not received any breast milk or formula and no one able to care for him. Sadly, his biological mother left this world before even giving him a name,” said Emilie. All took to Adam with random acts of kindness in and she became the little one’s sole carer. And the sleepless nights were down to her, but they were no bother. She felt privileged to help the little helpless baby but felt she did not do much. Yet never a day went by to be bored to sit and watch him for hours.Emilie Larter and Adam

Over the next two years, Emily visited Adam as often as she could by working in a teaching job in the UK. But the short visits were not enough and she moved back to Uganda in August 2016 after finding work at an international school. Now Adam, who is two-and-a-half, lives with her full time while she tries to adopt him. Emilie said:  She feels like his mum already. We had such a strong bond every time I was coming out but especially now since he’s been living with me. Emilie has to foster Adam until August before applying to the Ugandan courts to legally be his parent. So needs permission from UK to bring Adam back to Britain as he call her mum. She is hopeful they will live together in UK by the end of the year. Emilie plans to fund adoption until she lost her job in December. So prompted her to set up a Go Fund Me crowdfunding page to pay for the process. Emilie’s parents help to support her living costs as she takes her teaching positions to cover Adam’s fees. AdamEmilie admits becoming a mum at age 25 though not on her agenda, she does not regret the path she has taken. It was not in my plan but the last two-and-a-half years in Uganda and Adam is all she thinks about. So either talking about or thinking about him imagines perhaps may not have kids for another 10 years but does not regret her decision and choice to be the mum to Adam. So will be amazing to bring Adam home as her own finally.” While Emilie received overwhelming support for her decision, some online comments question why she wants to remove Adam from his home country. She is coming back to Uganda for him so wants to continue to do that,” she said. Emilie does her best to keep Adam in touch with the village he comes to see siblings or neighbours. Emilie does her best as his mum though mother’s love is the best most important things. And Adam will never get natural biological love from his mother because unfortunately she sadly passed and he was orphaned. Adam’s story is how God turns what devil means for evil to turn to good blessings. So what is impossible with man is POSSIBLE with LORD God Almighty.  God bless all the kindhearted generous donors in Jesus Name. In a similar true story a little 2year old white who girl chose black doll was asked if she did not want white doll like her. She answered both are doctors and equally beautiful playing with black doll.

JESUS COMES TO JERUSALEM

Christ enters Jerusalem before resurrection in Matthew 21:1 – 11. Jesus entered God’s HOLY City near the culmination of long journey toward Golgotha as He came to save all lost in Luke 19:10 by salvation. Palm Sunday marks start of Passion Week seven days of Jesus’ earthly ministry. Palm Sunday was beginning completing Jesus’ work on earth. Palm Sunday begun with Jesus and His disciples traveling over Mount Olives. Jesus sent two disciples ahead into the village of Bethphage to collect an animal to ride. They found unbroken colt of a donkey, just as Jesus had said they would in Luke 19:29–30. So they untied the colt as the owners began to question them. The disciples responded with the answer Jesus provided: “The Lord needs it” in Luke 19:31–34. The owners were satisfied so let disciples go. “They brought the donkey to Jesus, and threw their cloaks on the colt and then put Jesus on it” in Luke 19:35.holyweeki021.jpg
As Jesus ascended toward Jerusalem, a large multitude gathered around Him. This crowd understood Jesus was the Messiah; what they did not understand was it was not time to set up kingdom yet although Jesus had tried to tell them so in Luke 19:11–12. The crowd’s actions along the road give rise to name “Palm Sunday.” A large crowd spread cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road” (Matthew 21:8). In strewing their cloaks on the road, people were giving Jesus the royal treatmen King Jehu was given similar honor at his coronation (2 Kings 9:13). John records the detail that the branches they cut were from palm trees (John 12:13). On first Palm Sunday, the people honoured Jesus verbally: “The crowds went ahead of him and those followed shouted, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David!’ Blessed is He who comes  in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in highest heaven! in Matthew 21:9. In praise of Jesus, the Jewish crowds quote Psalm 118:25–26, an acknowledgment of prophecy of Christ to a Messianic psalm drew resentment from religious leaders present: “Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, ‘Teacher, rebuke your disciples! in Luke 19:39. Jesus saw no need to rebuke them but said “I tell you if they keep quiet the stones will cry out in Luke 19:40. 450 to 500 years prior to Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, prophet Zechariah had prophesied the event we now call Palm Sunday: “Rejoice greatly, Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughters of Jerusalem!  See, your king comes to you, righteous, victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey colt, the foal of a donkey” in Zechariah 9:9. Prophecy was fulfilled indeed so time of rejoicing, as Jerusalem welcomed their King. Unfortunately, the celebration was not to last. The crowds looked for a Messiah who would rescue politically and free them nationally, but Jesus had come to save them spiritually. Yet mankind’s primary need is spiritual, not political, cultural national salvation.
1154075-Palm-Sunday-Crowd-3.jpg
Even as the coatless multitudes waved the palm branches and shouted for joy, they missed the true reason for Jesus’ presence. They could neither see nor understand the cross. That’s why, “as [Jesus] approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, ‘If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you in Luke 19:41–47. It is a tragic the Saviour was not recognized by all Him for who He is. The crowds crying out “ Hosanna” on Palm Sunday cried out Crucify Him! later same week in Matthew 27:22–23. There is coming a day that every knee will bow and every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the FATHER according to Philippians 2:10–11). All worship will be real as John records scene in heaven of eternal celebration of the risen Lord: “There before me was a great multitude no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes, were holding palm branches in their hands” in Revelation 7:9-10. These palm-bearing saints shout, “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on Throne and the Lamb” and who can measure sum of their joy?Domingo-de-Ramos.jpg

What is the Passion Holy Week?”

Answer: Passion Week known as Holy Week is the time from Palm Sunday through to Easter Sunday Resurrection Sunday. Passion Week or Holy Monday HOLY Tuesday called Spy Wednesfield, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and HOLY Saturday. Passion Week is named because of the passion with which Jesus willingly went to the cross to pay for the sins of people. Passion Week described in Matthew chapters 21-27; Mark 11-15; Luke 19-23; and John 12-19. So Passion Week begins triumphal entry on Palm Sunday on back of a colt as prophesied in Zechariah 9:9. Passion Week contains several memorable events Jesus warned about including destruction of temple, desolation sacrilege, great tribulation rapture, His Second Coming to the earth to rule after the Armageddon war. IMG-20170326-WA0000Jesus cleans Temple for second time in Luke 19:45-46, disputed with Pharisees regarding His Authority. He gave Olivet Discourse on endtimes and taught many things of the signs of His second coming. Jesus ate His Last Supper with His disciples in the upper room in Luke 22:7-38, then went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray as He waited for His hour to come. It was here that Jesus, betrayed by Judas, was arrested and taken to several fake trials before chief priests, Pontius Pilate, and Herod Luke 22:54-23:25. After trumped trials, Jesus was scourged by the Roman soldiers, forced to carry His Cross on the streets of Jerusalem along Via Dolorosa or way of sorrows. Jesus was then crucified at Golgotha on the day before Sabbath, was buried and remained in the tomb until Sunday, the day after the Sabbath, and then gloriously resurrected. Passion Week time of Jesus Christ truly revealed His passion for suffering as He willingly went through on our behalf. Important humble attitude honours Passion Week. We should be passionate in our worship of Jesus in proclamation of His Gospel! Jesus suffered for us willing to suffer to shed His Blood for salvation of mankind cause of following Him and proclaiming message of His death and resurrection. During Palm Sunday Mass, palms are distributed to parishioners who carry them in a ritual procession into church. The palms are blessed with holy water. People are given small crosses made of palms taken home with them. Later these are burnt to create the ashes that are put on people’s heads on an Ash Wednesday before Lent starts following year.  If palm trees not grown, flowers or olive branches are used instead. The KING of Kings Jesus loves all people so gave His life and shed His Blood for all.e7cd4d0f0f2c3fdc8f983430ec80993f

Triumphant Entry Song:

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
Hark! all the tribes Hosanna cry;
O Savior meek, pursue Thy road
With palms and scattered garments strowed.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die!
O Christ! Thy triumph now begin
Over captive death and conquered sin.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
The wingèd squadrons of the sky
Look down with sad and wondering eyes
To see the approaching sacrifice.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
The last and fiercest strife is nigh!
The Father on His sapphire throne
Expects His own anointed Son.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die!
Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,
Then take, O God! Thy power and reign.

GOD’S HEAVENLY ANGELS

4ae053007a6357bc8845bf9b3276fe6f.jpgJesus said, most assuredly, I say to you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon Son of Man in John 1:51 in Bible. People are truly seeing manifestation of angels in dreams or visions daily. These angels are already on earth so actively at work among us, working miracles, healings, deliverances, saving souls, bringing gifts among other duties as God instructs them on our behalf. So many things happen on our behalf that sometimes are not even seen or known about. However, at other times God is willing to open the physical eyes of our understanding in visions and dreams. This is to let us know God is still on the throne so everything is under control. js.jpgGod is sending Jesus and the angels to earth when the time is right. It may not be the way mankind wants things to be done because people want to hold on to power. Causing chaos, confusion and a rebellion against God. However, the changes taking place is to restore earth to the original perfection God planned. God allows mankind like the prodigal son to go check things for themselves to return in humility to God once and for all. Knowing there is nothing better out there luring mankind through sin. Prior to Jesus’ prophecy, Jacob also dreamt so saw a ladder set up on the earth and the top if it reached to heaven. Jacob saw angels of God ascending and descending on ladder ministering to him to serve him food and drinks to nourish him.IMG_20170401_083327.jpgActs 2:17 states it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, and your old men and women shall dreams. and prophecy. These words are written in Bible from God Almighty concerning the modern world. God continues to reveal HIMSELF to ALL FLESH even all those who do not believe in God to show events coming to take place on earth. As Jacob dreamt in Genesis 10:22-28 saw angels climbing up and down a ladder from heaven connecting to earth. This is a well documented living history and so Jesus says people will continue to see in visions, dreams and physically angels.b624485d58631219a1d342ad1fff1084.jpgAgain in Joel 2:28, the prophet said, in the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people; your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions and your old men and women shall dream dreams. Again God includes ALL PEOPLE in the scheme of things to come during endtime as all human beings on earth will be affected by the events unfolding on earth. God in His Mercy and Grace is revealing many important information to human beings to take notice to prepare for Jesus Christ return to earth. Everyday or night God’s angels God surround us working hard to save, heal, deliver in times of agony as Jesus was in Gethsemane. The angels send souls back to God in heaven after their passing, and comforts loved ones grieving loss mourning with hope.a199ef7203828e2ae8d5c02c8c6d4d1f.jpg

Mainly the messages of the visions and the dreams are twofold. The first part of message is hope and encouragement to all those enduring to the end in Christ to be rescued in the rapture and saved. It is also a double-edged sword message to the wicked from the Spirit of the Lord being poured out upon all flesh. So Joel   warns in advance of a great battle that will happen in the last days. This is the battle of Armageddon going that will be taking place in Israel. Only God knows the exact day or time but sends highest alert signals of impeding events through visions and dreams. God will show HIS wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. All these are taking place to warn and shake the world to change before it is too late.IMG_20170331_191946.jpg
In addition to other daily living history occurrences that are observed all over the world. Do not be too busy to ignore your salvation and future destination determined by your own choice and decisions made by you. Billions of people are crying everyday and sighing in agony fasting, pleading for God’s mercy upon mankind. Make sure you yourself a favour to take God seriously too. Since Jesus started appearing to me 35 years ago consistently in my dreams, visions with angels is in Bible as rhema word of God. Out of all visions the most important messages Jesus said to me personally is, I HAVE SAVED, HEALED AND DELIVERED YOU. My life became transformed so my total focus changed to fulfilling God’s Calling upon my life. I live my life with hope and assurance of faith in Christ. Many people are visited by the Holy Spirit of God revealing these dreams and visions all over the world. IMG_20170401_212036.jpgVisions are openly recorded, published globally in books, YouTube or in blogs warning people to take notice. In the Bible God always warns His people about the future to guide them on what to do to remain steadfast and strong in His word and will to fulfil their purpose. This world is fast approaching the great tribulation already taking place as Jesus warned of evil never seen before and not again after Jesus returns to establish His Kingdom on earth. Do not ignore or overlook all these global events being fulfilling in Bible prophecy according to the 70 weeks of Daniel and Revelationsabbey_mod.jpg

Angelic visitation of Jacob as recorded in Genesis 28:10 is commemorated in many churches and places visited by millions of people to remind the world of Bible dreams or visions with angels involved in the life of people on earth. Jesus says there will so many more visitations of angels and the signs and wonders in the sky to show all endtime changes before the whole world. This angel visits will continue to happen on a daily basis until Jesus Messiah shows up physically and publicly for the whole world to see Son of God accompanied by a countless multitudes of billions of angels. It is challenging to find accurate paintings representing the exact visions and dreams. These are the token images of salient points of things coming soon on earth. God is reorganizing the earth so angels play an active prominent role in the changes to coming into the whole world. Jacob experienced God’s Favour of angels sent directly from heaven to be to help and support him. God today still continues daily to send HIS angels as mesengerss to ALL who love God and call upon His Name in Christ to provide.

EZEKIEL’S VISIONS OF GOD

201419jttbezekiel-141030012513-conversion-gate02-thumbnail-4

God is physically seen on heaven throne by Ezekiel 1-3 in Bible as Omnipresence of God connects to earth directly. God’s Omniscient Eyes, God’s Omnipotent Powerful postion is revealed to Ezekiel in vision. God propels chariot throne movement actions by God’s Divine Nature, Glory, Supreme, Immanent Existence extending into all HIS created universe. Ezekiel sleeping on one side 430 days, accomplished by lunar-solar calendar year in 13th month Ezekiel completes assignment with days to spare. Torah revelation by God in this vision to Ezekiel of cherubim, seraphim, chariot, Spirit and wheels give insight to heaven. This vision vividly displays the Majesty and Glory of God sitting on His Throne, fully in control in 13th year, 4th month, on 5th day of month. Ezekiel was among captives by river Chebar in Babylon in Iraq when heavens opened and saw visions of God Almighty. In 5th year of king Jehoiachin’s captivity into Babylon the word of the LORD God to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by river Chebar the hand of the LORD was upon him. As he looked and saw a whirlwind out of the north, a great cloud and fire unfolding brightly as colour of amber out of midst of fire. In vision 4 living creatures with appearance of men had 4 faces of a man, face of lion, on right side, face of ox on left side and face of eagle. God’s consuming fire surrounds HIS Glory. Ezekiel’s visions have symbolic meanings for Christian believers, Israel and the whole world. So each face represents the chief creatures of their domains man over all creatures, lion over all wild creatures, ox over all domesticated creatures, and the eagle over the birds of the air. All the 4 living creatures with 4 faces stand before the throne of the Sovereign God.Four_Living_Creatures.jpgThose searching God’s Perfection see in Christ HIS Son the Firstborn of creation Jesus Christ HIS brightness round about HIM. Jesus possesses all these qualities of each face of the angels. The likeness of living creatures comes in the midst of God’s fire as these angels derive their being and power from God and Christ. So they have an understanding of a man far more than a mere mortal. The Lion of Judah Jesus Excels in great strength and boldness to rule as the KING of Kings. An ox excels in diligent patience, unwearied work plowing rich fields for abundant harvest providing providence and also sustenance. An eagle soars so excels in quickness as believers mount up with wings like eagles soaring high. Angels, excel in many ways with 4 wings and so the business God is quickly done. They stand straight, firm, steady, tall used the wings for motion, hands or feet straight and sole of their feet like sole of a calf foot, sparkled like colour of burnished brass. They had the hands of a man under their wings on 4 sides and 4 faces.   bc7a122b8b6923c1d3bd92b07fc3fb89.jpgTheir 4 wings joined one to another so they did not turn when they went about straight forward. Their 4 faces were the face of a man, face of a lion, on the right side, the face of an ox on left side and the face of eagle and each had 4 wings.  Their wings stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. They went everyone straight forward where spirit was to go they went and they turned not around as they went about. Likeness of living creatures appear as burning coals of fire in the appearance of lamps up and down among the living creatures. The fire was bright and out of the fire went forth lightning. Isaiah 6:1, and Ezekiel’s 10:1, Daniel 7:9 in Isaiah’s Vision all see and describe God on the throne. Isaiah’s Vision in the year of King Uzziah’s death of the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted with the train of His Robe filling the room. The living creatures ran and return quickly as flash lightning. The living creatures have a wheel next to them. They have 4 human arms and hands like those of a man. The hand is the symbol of active power and skilfulness in Ps 78.72 seen by Ezekiel imply actions activating commands of God by wisdom, dexterity and vigilance to obey God. And under their wings power emanates from the Visible God moving their 4 hands. Four Headed Cherub.jpgThe 4 faced creatures had feet of a calf. The standard of Judah features as a Lion, Reuben the first-born a man, Ephraim an ox and the tribe of Dan is eagle. The sin of golden calf depicted in Ezekiel vision shows consequences as idolatrous exile, signified in the feet resembling a calf’s hoof. The same depiction in Isaiah 6:2 is covered by wings to shield their sin from the Holy God. Israel followed the spirit of God out of Babylon, out of exile back to the promised land just as out of Egypt. Despite previous sins their feet like calf hooves and legs remain strong following the spirit of God leading them back later into the promised land. Next in vision is heavenly technology of 4 wheels within a wheel. Their appearance and work was like colour of a beryl with the same one likeness. Their appearance and work was a wheel in the middle of a wheel. So when they went on their four sides they turned not when they went about. As for their rings, they were so high that they were awesome and their rings were full of eyes round about them for seeing. When living creatures moved about their wheels went by them and when living creatures were lifted up from the earth the wheels were lifted up. Wherever the spirit went wheels lifted nearby for spirit of living creatures was in wheels. Wherever they went these went and so when they stood these stood; when they were lifted up from the earth wheels lifted up next to them so spirit of living creatures in wheels. The principle of motion in the living beings empowered and propelled by God and wheels. The vision of heaven is connected directly to earth from God’s throne room touching earth on ground.  e6de91dc880c55b3e21d50f99b264259The wheel rings, full of eyes all-seeing like man’s eyes are made in likeness of God in Genesis 1:26. The great number of eyes on the rings symbolize how great is God’s awareness and direction of events. The Bible Scriptures give interpretation according to 1 Peter 1:20 know what God allows us to understand the wheel vision carrying God on throne given to Ezekiel. The likeness of the firmaments on heads of living creatures is colour of  crystal  stretched over their heads above. And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered one side, and every one had two, which covered other side of their bodies. And when they went is heard noise of their wings like the noise of great waters, as the voice of Almighty God, the Voice of God’s speech, as the noise of host when they stood they let down their wings. So the Voice from the firmament was over their heads when they stood and had let down their wings. Above the firmament over their heads was likeness of a throne the appearance of a sapphire stone and upon the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon throne. And the colour of amber appearance of fire round about from within, from the appearance of HIS LOINS upward and downward appearance of fire and it had brightness round about. The appearance of rainbow in the cloud like in the day of rain was appearance of the brightness. God’s Presence surrounded by Rainbow  adds to brilliance of colour covenant of peace between God and man through HIS Grace and Mercy. Appearance of the Glory of LORD God Almighty Ezekiel saw and fell on his face and heard the Voice of God Speak. Although the Jews were in captivity God’s Love for them continued to reassure them of His remembrance. Today no matter the state of any person or the situation, God still shows up to those who call upon God in Christ Jesus to save them everyday. In Daniel 7:7-13 living creatures surround white throne on which the Ancient of Days God Sits. This white throne is in final judgement in Revelations 20:22-15. The 4 beasts differ from the 4 beasts Ezekiel 1 and Revelations 4:6-8 so the lion, calf, eagle and man face creature has 4 wings but in contrast beasts in Revelation Seraphim have six wings. The Book of Isaiah 6:1-8 describes six-wing beings flying around the Throne of God singing “Holy, Holy, Holy.” God creates an amazing variety of no-wing angels, 2 wing angels, 4 wing angels and 6 winged angels as featured.0da6e43818c5f6633353de1b318ba898However, the first beast has the wings removed so stands upright and given mind of man. The 2nd beast resembles a bear with 3 ribs in mouth, told to ‘get up and eat your fill of flesh.’ The third beast resembles leopard with 4 heads as beasts in Ezekiel and Revelations. And beast given authority to rule like dragon beast from sea in Revelations 13. The final beast has large iron teeth used to crush and devour victims trampled underfoot as winepress beast, Revelation 14:18-20 until Jesus Christ Crushes the beast. In Revelations 4:6-8 the 4 living beings in Greek: τέσσαρα ζῷα, tessera zō[i]a are seen in John’s vision. These appear as a lion, ox, man, and eagle in Ezekiel but in a different order. They have six wings, but Ezekiel’s 4 living creatures have 4. In verse 6, they have “eyes all over, front and back so they alert, knowledgeable so nothing escapes notice. The wheels are beside living creatures in Ezekiel 1.18; 10.12, are “full of eyes all around.” The Hebrew word for “wheel” ôpannîm in Jewish literature indicates angelic orders in 1 Enoch 71.7; 3 Enoch 1.8; 7.1; 25.5-6, etc. In Revelation, 4 beasts surround God on red throne of ruby sardius contrasts white throne in Daniel 7:9, Revelations 20:11-15. So these 4 living creatures in prophetic apocalyptic interpretations by Christians vary. 4 living creatures, John of Patmos sees in Revelations and living creatures in visions of Ezekiel 1:5-28 and Isaiah 6:2 are similar but different. Ezekiel_10.22510831_std.jpgIn church history Victorinus, not original or only one said, lion represents Mark, the calf Luke, the man Matthew, and eagles John. Ireneaus was the first to make this association with evangelists. In living history the nations represented as eagle is America, lion is Britain, ox is Germany and bear Russia. Others think these represents intelligence of man, power, courage in lion, strength of ox and speed of eagle. In a hierarchy of life forms man is king of all, lion is king of animals, ox king of work, eagle king of birds. Some say China is lion, ox Russia so global news directly leads to endtime Armageddon significant roles. So think antiChrist leads supported by 2 states against Israel before final ultimate rule by Christ. Prophet Ezekiel  prophesied the whole world shall come to know God as everything leads to God’s Kingdom establishment of New Jerusalem on the earth. This whole world is about to know God for the first time ever as the verses in Ezekiel 6:7, 10; 12:15, 20; 16:62; 34:27; 37:13-14 shows. Before that happens to the world, God says His end-time elect will send HIS warning messages. Book of Ezekiel in its entirety helps lead the world to get to know the True, Living God Yahweh in Christ Jesus His Son. Although things get worse before life gets better the most important decision to make is belong to the Living God Almighty in Jesus Name. Jesus weeps and intercedes on behalf of people to be saved before it is too late. God is sad and crying in Jeremiah 14:17 for you like HE did for God’s people Judah. God cries in Romans 8:26, as it says when we do not know what to pray for in face of calamity God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us through groanings. God groans and sighs beyond what words express and God cries beyond human tears. God is Crying over plight of the world and its destructions by God’s wrath to come. Receive God’s Grace and Mercy freely to you bought and paid for by Christ Jesus for eternal life. In the Bible in the village of Bethany Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus in John 11:35 and so continues to weep for all humanity. Jesus is weeping today to save you so accept His Love.
