God hides Himself

Isaiah 45:15 Truly, you are a God who hides himself, O God of Israel, the Savior.

Psalms 89:46 How long, O Lord? Will you hide yourself forever? How long will your wrath burn like fire?

John 5:36 But I have a testimony greater than John's. The works that the Father has given me to complete, the very works that I am doing, testify on my behalf that the Father has sent me. 37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified on my behalf. You have never heard his voice or seen his form, No one has ever seen God the Father or heard His voice. Jesus is the spokesman (logos) and speaks for and does the will of His Father

Hebrews 1:1 Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets,2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom he also created the worlds. A Son (the first of many), heir of all things, through whom He created the worlds. Jesus created the worlds.

Moses and Aaron are a type of God the Father and Jesus Christ. Moses never spoke to the people, he told Aaron what God said and Aaron spoke for him.

Exodus 4:15 You shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth; and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do. 16 He indeed shall speak for you to the people; he shall serve as a mouth for you, and you shall serve as God for him.

Exodus 4:30 Aaron spoke all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses, and performed the signs in the sight of the people.

Isaiah 59:1 See, the Lord's hand is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. 2 Rather, your iniquities have been barriers between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.

Has there ever been anything so horrific that you couldn't look at it? You know if you did it would haunt you and drive you nuts and you would never get it out of your mind. God hates sin. He can't bear to see it. He can't abide it and doesn't want it. Jesus is and always has been the go between. Jesus is the God of the old testament who dealt with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Issac, Jacob (Isreal), Moses - everyone.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Jesus is the word or logos who did the creating.

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

God hates the breaking of His laws (commandments).

Exodus 19:7 So Moses came, summoned the elders of the people, and set before them all these words that the Lord had commanded him.8 The people all answered as one: "Everything that the Lord has spoken we will do." Moses reported the words of the people to the Lord.

The covenant was: the people will obey Gods commands and God will in turn bless Israel, in short. If the people broke the covenant, the covenant would be null and void but Gods commandments continue to stand. Breaking the commandments would still be sin and the penalty would still be death. God didn't bring His commandments into being when He gave them to Israel, He was teaching them to them because they were seperated from any knowledge of God while they were in Egypt. They needed to learn what Adam, Noah, Abraham, Issaac, and Jacob already knew. The same goes for the dietary laws.

Genesis 7:1 Then the Lord said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me in this generation. 2 Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and its mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and its mate;

Noah was to take seven pairs of clean animals and only two pair of unclean. So he knew what clean and unclean animals were. But I digress.

Exodus 19:10 the Lord said to Moses: "Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes 11 and prepare for the third day, because on the third day the Lord will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.

God was not hiding from Israel at this time.

Exodus 20:19 and said to Moses, "You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, or we will die."

The people did not want God to speak to them. They hid themselves from God first.

Genesis 3:8 They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?" 10 He said, "I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself."

Adam and Eve hid themselves from God first. It was the One who would become Jesus who was talking with them.

1 Samuel 8:4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, 5 and said to him, "You are old and your sons do not follow in your ways; appoint for us, then, a king to govern us, like other nations." 6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, "Give us a king to govern us." Samuel prayed to the Lord, 7 and the Lord said to Samuel, "Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them. 8 Just as they have done to me, from the day I brought them up out of Egypt to this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so also they are doing to you.

Again, the people rejected God. People don't want God interfering in their lives. They want to continue doing what they do without the consequences. They want God to remove the effect but don't want to change the cause. And so it goes to this day.

Website of the day: Jayna Davis An investigative report linking the Oklahoma City bombing to the middle east.

Here's an article about the United States of Europe. Garner Ted Armstrong has been saying in print and in sermons since the 1950's that Germany would rise again and head a union of 10 nations. This is predicted in the bible and you can see for yourself. Start here. There are some online booklets available on this subject here.

The kids are driving me nuts today! I can't even think right now. Joshua puts up massive walls when he encounters a simple little problem. The whole world has to stop because he can't find something that has nothing to do with what he's supposed to be doing.

Her's an article about Blogs:Dear Internet Diary... My mother was asking me what a blog was.

Who is the antichrist?

1John 2:18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour.

1John 2:22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.

1John 4:3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the {spirit} of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

2John 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ {as} coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist

You can see from the verses above there are and have been since John wrote this, many antichrists. It is simply put someone who does not acknowledge that Jesus is the Christ, the messiah, the Logos who was Theos and was with Theos. By whom Theos created all things. Theos is the original greek in John 1:1 and is plural. It corresponds perfectly with the hebrew in Genesis 1

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. God here is Elohim, also plural. Let us make man in our image.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

That's it. John is the only one who mentions an antichrist. There are many, many antichrists in the world today. You see them every day and don't realize it, perhaps now you will. They are not to be feared, if you know the truth, stick with the truth, do not be deceived. The antichrist is often confused with the beast and false prophet of the book of the Revelation of (from) God. That is a more involved subject and information about them is available from the Garner Ted Armstrong website. Click on booklets. Also listen to a sermon, just click on sermons and download your choice.

Matthew 16:13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He was asking His disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?"

16:14 And they said, "Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets."

16:15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am ?"

16:16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

16:17 And Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

16:18 "I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.
He says "you are petros", which means a small stone. And "upon this petra", petra means huge rock or monolith, in which case He is talking about Himself. He is not telling Simon Peter that He will build His church (actually Ekklesia, a gathering called out.) on Simon Peter.

16:19 "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven."
They cannot bind or loose anything contrary to the laws of God

16:20 Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ.
They were to tell no one that He was the Christ! Obviously He is not trying to save the world. His purpose was to overcome Satan and qualify to replace him as world ruler, then be sacrificed to pay the penalty of sin for all mankind, and be resurrected to eternal life, the first of many brothers.There is no calling of the world in general until the 2nd resurrection, about 1000 years after the return of Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming.
After His coming He will rule for 1000 years. Notice Christ first, then those who are Christs (the ekklesia: called out ones). His church lives on earth through the tribulation. There is no rapture. And the dead are just that, dead. They do not know the passing of time, like a deep sleep.

John 3:13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven

Revelation 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished.

Matthew 11:6 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me."

Matthew 15:12 Then His disciples came and said to Him, "Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?" 13 But He answered and said, "Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. 14 Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch."

You cannot go into any church today (or school for that matter) and teach the truth of God. They will kick you as fast as they can get their hands on you. People are offended by the truth. We are born into a ready made world, we have to fit in, we learn what is taught to us and generally accept it. Some find their own truth. But either way we just won't accept anything contrary to what we already know. People are very loyal to what they know to be true, regardless of what that is. It could be any religion, philosophy, science or mixture of them. Notice that God will "uproot" what He has not planted. Also, He said "Let them alone". He was not and is not trying to save the world at this time. He said his piece, they didn't accept it and he left them alone. Consider the following verse:

Matthew 15:22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed." 23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us." 24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."

If you read that account (and you should) you will see He did help her because she persisted in faith. Try not to be offended by what you read. It's not politically correct.

Mark 6:2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, "Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! 3 Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?" And they were offended at Him.

Jesus kept the Sabbath? Hmmm. Imagine that. Further, you can plainly see that these church going people had never heard the things He was teaching them and were offended. Lastly, Jesus had 4 brothers and at least two sisters.

Website of the day: Science of Cooking

I was watching CNN at work last night (no choice, it's the only newschannel available there.) and saw Aaron Brown, who, to me, seems like a man who can barely contain his liberal smugness and vanity, actually say, after being told that FOX and MSNBC also have the names of the two sniper suspects: "I like it when we own a piece of information, but.." That sentence was quite a mouthful. Anyway, since when do networks own the news? I can understand getting an exclusive, but you must understand it won't remain exclusive very long. Is something like information about suspects in a horrific case like this one what you want to own? An interview with a celebrity fine, but suspects in a serial muder? These huge news stories bring out the worst in journalists. And that gets pretty bad!

I want to thank the law enforcement officials in charge and everyone involved in the capture of these two men. Chief Moose did a great job in spite of all the pressure put on him by his job and by the media.

One thing I noticed that was very blatant in this story was all the leaks and "sources" the media kept getting information from. Much of the information was supposedly not for public knowledge yet there didn't seem to be many secrets. They talked about it alot and it wasn't just one or two informants. They had lists of people to get information from "unofficially". There seems to be alot of that going around, especially in government. Seeing this happen so much kind of blows the idea of vast conspiracies out of the water, doesn't it? I can't see any government agency keeping any big news from getting out, somebody always wants to talk. Always.

But there is an explanation for some "conspiracies" that seem to go on for years. Even if they are not conspiracies of man, there is a connection of some events that make it seems as though they were planned. I'm not thinking of anything specifically, pick one: UFO's, ghosts, secret world leaders, whatever. I know the list is much longer but I don't dwell on these things so they don't come to mind.

Fiction or nonfiction? Do you believe Star Trek or Star Wars could happen?

The fact is, we are not alone on this planet. There are powerful (compared to us) beings living among us. They were here long before any man was on the earth, perhaps for milions or billions of years. They live in a different dimension which we can not enter or see, but they can and sometimes do enter ours. They are immortal and do not reproduce. The individuals here now are the same that were originally placed on the earth so long ago. That's why they know everything that has ever happened here. They were to tend and care for the earth. Unfortunately, the leader of these beings was not satisfied with his position and wanted to overthrow his Leader and control the entire universe and the other dimension that they exist in. They exist in and see both dimensions. There was a great war, a "star wars" if you will, and the earth and at least the nearest parts of the universe were destroyed and laid waste. Fortunately the beings which placed them on the earth are infinitely stronger and they were thrown down and are not allowed to leave, not yet.

They lived for a while on a destroyed and flooded planet, in total darkness. The leader of the universe returned eventually and began to make the earth suitable again for physical life. Fast forward to the present day. Mankind was placed on the earth to qualify to replace the king of the earth. Guess who didn't like the idea? Having every advantage over mankind and able to influence him he caused the first man and therefore all men to fail to qualify. He deceived them. He has continued to deceive every generation since. He has caused man to believe he is immortal and will not really die after his body dies, probably his first great deception. He has also deceived many to believe he doesn't exist, most people don't to this day, in fact you may be considered crazy to even suggest such a thing. Of course, that works to his advantage. He can't just kill all human beings even though he has the power. He is limited in what he is allowed to do by the Leader of the universe who has ultimate control. But he does every thing possible to keep you from knowing the truth, still trying in vain to defeat his Leader.

Since he caused mankind to fail to replace him and therefore condemned them to death, the Great Leader of all sent his second in command to qualify and save mankind from death. He actually divested himself of his power and immortality and became a human being. As a human, he lived a perfect life and overcame and qualified to replace the king of the earth. He then allowed himself to be killed as a sacrifice to pay the penalty for mankind, since his life was worth more than the lives of all humans who have ever lived. After three days and three nights he was resurrected to his previous immortal life and returned to the throne of the universe to receive His crown and prepare for most of mankind to be born again with an immortal body. (This is not a detailed account, I'm skipping some bits.)

So, the king of the earth could not defeat him and he began to deceive those who knew the truth into believing he was that great being and they should worship him.
And he has kept at it and added to it and it resulted in the huge mess of confusion we have now have called religion.(christianity, islam, and judaism, who are actually still waiting on the savior) Actually, he doesn't really care what you believe as long as it is not the truth. The whole world around us is a huge deception, almost like the matrix, to keep you from the truth. You will find bits and pieces of the true history of this planet in some movies and books because mankind is easily influenced and ideas are put into our minds sometimes. Ask a songwriter how he writes his songs. Many will tell you they just come to them, it's not something they think about and create.

Sound like a movie? This is very roughly the story of the real Jesus Christ. The bible is a book from alien beings who are actually reproducing themselves through mankind.
That was way over the edge wasn't it? Investigate for yourself, you have a bible somewhere don't you? The plan of God, in a nutshell, is this : Let us make man in Our image. For guidance go here but don't believe what someone tells you, believe the bible!

Website of the day:
also check out Clark Howard.

Someone found this site searching for Beth Ann Burke. Was that a relative or just by chance? I didn't think there would be so many sites with that name.

Here's a message from God to this country:
Deuteronomy 28: 1 - 68

1 "Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God: 3 Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. 4 Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. 5 Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. 6 Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. 7 "The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. 8 The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. 9 The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.12 The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14 So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Laugh if you will, but this is the only way out of the mess this country is in. God has promised these blessings for keeping his commandments. On the other hand, if we continue breaking his commandments...

15 "But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: 16 Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. 17 Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. 18 Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. 19 Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. 20 "The Lord will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken Me. 21 The Lord will make the plague cling to you until He has consumed you from the land which you are going to possess. 22 The Lord will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with severe burning fever, with the sword, with scorching, and with mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish. 23 And your heavens which are over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you shall be iron. 24 The Lord will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed. 25 The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them; and you shall become troublesome to all the kingdoms of the earth. 26Your carcasses shall be food for all the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and no one shall frighten them away. 27 The Lord will strike you with the boils of Egypt, with tumors, with the scab, and with the itch, from which you cannot be healed. 28 The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of heart. 29 And you shall grope at noonday, as a blind man gropes in darkness; you shall not prosper in your ways; you shall be only oppressed and plundered continually, and no one shall save you. 30 You shall betroth a wife, but another man shall lie with her; you shall build a house, but you shall not dwell in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but shall not gather its grapes. 31 Your ox shall be slaughtered before your eyes, but you shall not eat of it; your donkey shall be violently taken away from before you, and shall not be restored to you; your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you shall have no one to rescue them. 32 Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall look and fail with longing for them all day long; and there shall be no strength in your hand. 33 A nation whom you have not known shall eat the fruit of your land and the produce of your labor, and you shall be only oppressed and crushed continually. 34 So you shall be driven mad because of the sight which your eyes see. 35 The Lord will strike you in the knees and on the legs with severe boils which cannot be healed, and from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.36 The Lord will bring you and the king whom you set over you to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known, and there you shall serve other gods--wood and stone. 37 And you shall become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword among all nations where the Lord will drive you. 38 You shall carry much seed out to the field but gather little in, for the locust shall consume it. 39 You shall plant vineyards and tend them, but you shall neither drink of the wine nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. 40 You shall have olive trees throughout all your territory, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil; for your olives shall drop off. 41 You shall beget sons and daughters, but they shall not be yours; for they shall go into captivity. 42 Locusts shall consume all your trees and the produce of your land. 43 The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. 46 And they shall be upon you for a sign and a wonder, and on your descendants forever. 47 "Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young. 51 And they shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land, until you are destroyed; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you. 52 They shall besiege you at all your gates until your high and fortified walls, in which you trust, come down throughout all your land; and they shall besiege you at all your gates throughout all your land which the Lord your God has given you. 53 You shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom the Lord your God has given you, in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you. 54 The sensitive and very refined man among you will be hostile toward his brother, toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the rest of his children whom he leaves behind, 55 so that he will not give any of them the flesh of his children whom he will eat, because he has nothing left in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you at all your gates. 56 The tender and delicate woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot on the ground because of her delicateness and sensitivity, will refuse to the husband of her bosom, and to her son and her daughter, 57 her placenta which comes out from between her feet and her children whom she bears; for she will eat them secretly for lack of everything in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you at all your gates. 58 "If you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, THE LORD YOUR GOD, 59 then the Lord will bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues--great and prolonged plagues--and serious and prolonged sicknesses. 60 Moreover He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. 61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this Book of the Law, will the Lord bring upon you until you are destroyed. 62 You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God. 63 And it shall be, that just as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off the land which you go to possess.64 "Then the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods, which neither you nor your fathers have known--wood and stone. 65 And among those nations you shall find no rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a resting place; but there the Lord will give you a trembling heart, failing eyes, and anguish of soul. 66 Your life shall hang in doubt before you; you shall fear day and night, and have no assurance of life. 67 In the morning you shall say, 'Oh, that it were evening!' And at evening you shall say, 'Oh, that it were morning!' because of the fear which terrifies your heart, and because of the sight which your eyes see. 68 And the Lord will take you back to Egypt in ships, by the way of which I said to you, 'You shall never see it again.' And there you shall be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you."

I know that was long but very important. Have you noticed we already have alot of these problems in our country?

Mal 3:6 "For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.

John 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Read John chapter 1, it is obviously speaking of Jesus Christ. The being who said He would bless us if we kept His laws or curse us if we do not is the one who became Jesus Christ. Jesus is not a mamby pamby long haired wimp. That is a deception. He is strong, sure, honest, patient, loving, kind. He is not tolerant of anyone who would break his laws, but forgiving of those who repent of breaking them. He does not comprimise with His laws one bit. They do not evolve. Go to this page and order "The Real Jesus" for the truth from the pages of your bible.

Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Rev 12 "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last." 14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Mt 5:17 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.

Jesus did not nail the commandments to the cross or do away with them in any way and He does not change His morality to fit the times.

Isa 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isa 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Happy Birthday to Beth Ann Burke! Check out this day in history. Here and here. Here's a link to Birthday Facts and Fun.
Ever wonder about the Happy Birthday song? Look here.

I am getting so tired of the news lately. They just latch onto a juicey story and can't let it go no matter how many times they beat that dead horse. Must they analyze every little detail of every possible scenario some so-called expert can dream up. Not just some expert, everyone and anyone that can articulate a sentence on TV seems to be an expert now! Than they debate it and debate it some more. And none of them has any idea what they are talking about, they are not involved in the investigation, they don't know the facts of the case and they have no clue what fools they look like! I watched Gary Tuchman show the view from the woods behind the Ponderosa, the trail the killer may have taken, and the view from the parking lot over and over and over like he discovered the single most important piece of evidence in the case. Much to the delight of his in studio sidekick, Nancy Grace.

Then they give great ideas to whatever crazy person may be out there to do something worse. If this isn't the work of a foreign terrorist they sure have given them some great ideas to shut down any city in the country now! Or create a diversion for some other terrorist action they have in mind.

It's as if the only thing that matters is how much air time they can get to advance their careers. And the police are just as bad in that respect all though they have mostly gotten over that in this case. But usually a press conference consists of mostly thanking and congratulating whatever force and whoever was in charge of the case.

They need to just report the facts and stop overanalyzing everything to death. Why do colleges tell reporters they have the most important job in the country. Then they go out and report with all their pet causes and ideologies which they can barely, if at all, contain and believe they are doing this country a service. Important stories get buried and we only get to hear about what gets ratings and what matters to them unless you get on the internet and do some searching for the truth.

OK, I'm done ranting.

Hosea 11:1 "When Israel was a child, I loved him, And out of Egypt I called My son.

"Genesis 48 is the vitally important account of how the name of Israel passed upon Ephraim and Manassseh, Joseph's two sons!
But the most important verse is verse 16. Read it again!
"The angel [messenger] which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lad; and LET MY NAME BE NAMED ON THEM, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth."
Which tribes, then, according to your Bible, should wear the name of Israel? Judah? No. Simeon or Levi? No.
The name of the House of ISRAEL was very clearly passed down to the two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, in that order!
Ephraim was prophesied to become a company of nations, and his brother, Manasseh, a great single nation!
Great Britain and the United States!
These two brothers were to possess the names of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or ISRAEL!
They, uniquely among the other children of Jacob, were to have the name of "ISRAEL" upon them!"

2 As they called them, So they went from them; They sacrificed to the Baals, And burned incense to carved images.
3 "I taught Ephraim to walk, Taking them by their arms; But they did not know that I healed them.
4 I drew them with gentle cords, With bands of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them.
5 "He shall not return to the land of Egypt; But the Assyrian shall be his king, Because they refused to repent.

As the ancient Babylonian kingdom gained the ascendancy, the wandering peoples of Assyria and the ten-tribed captives among them were pushed ever northward, and westward. The leading tribe of the Assyrians was called the "Halmanni." The Latins called the land of Germany "Alemannia." Today, Mexicans and Spaniards call Germany "Aleman." A German is "Un Aleman."
"Teuton" merely means "spear warrior"; a name given to the Germanic peoples by the Romans. "Deutschland" is the Germanic pronunciation of "Teuton," and has no ethnological origins, but refers, instead, to the ancient names applied to the warlike peoples encountered by the Romans in northern and central Europe.

6 And the sword shall slash in his cities, Devour his districts, And consume them, Because of their own counsels.
7 My people are bent on backsliding from Me. Though they call to the Most High, None at all exalt Him.

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob OBEYED God. They did not merely think "nice thoughts" about God; they did not offer Him lip service. Their quality of character was not merely a "good attitude"; they PROVED their love and obedience to God BY THEIR WORKS! James wrote, "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith BY MY WORKS. Thou believest that there is one God? [or, "that God is one"]; thou doest well: the demons also believe, and tremble!" (James 2:17-19).

The devil is a great BELIEVER! He KNOWS God exists, for he has SEEN GOD! His fallen angels, called "demons," also "believe"! Like millions of professing Christians, they "believe on" Christ! Oh, don't doubt for a moment that the demons KNOW JESUS IS THE CHRIST! They KNOW He died for the sins of the world; that He is the Saviour of mankind! Was not Satan the devil personally inside of Judas Iscariot at Christ's betrayal?

But "belief" is NOT ENOUGH!

Notice! "But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

"Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works [deeds-action!] was faith made perfect?

"And the scripture was fulfilled which saith Abraham BELIEVED GOD [he didn't merely "believe on" God—HE BELIEVED GOD] and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the friend of God" (James 2:17-23).

I took the kids to seaworld today. It is so tiring, I don't know how people do it in one day. We have a season pass and go once in a while for a few hours. That's enough.
They loved it though. They played in the playground for a while, saw Shamu but didn't get wet, it was a little too cold. At the dolphin petting pool, the dolphins were coming right up to us because the next person was feeding them. James was excited to be so close but was afraid to touch them. He thinks they will bite him. We played with some hermet crabs in the tidal pool. The shark exhibit is open again but they kind of rush you through it.
It's much nicer to go when you don't have to rush. Just see what you want, when you want, Then go home and come back another time for more.
You can see pictures from the Shamu show here. Discovery Cove looks cool but pricey.

Gotta go now, children need me.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Eze 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die

Eze 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

Soul is translated from the Hebrew "Nephesh" with the following definition:
a- that which breathes, the breathing substance or being, soul, the inner being of man
b- living being
c- living being (with life in the blood)
d- the man himself, self, person or individual
Nephesh is used of lower creatures many times before it is used to refer to man in Genesis. See a Strong's Concordance.

Ro 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Please notice that you do not have eternal life. Eternal life is a gift.

Ge 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return

Eze 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Ex 16:28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

De 6:17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.

De 11:1 Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.

De 28:45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

2Ki 17:13 Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.

Pr 7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye

Mt 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

I believe I have made an incredible scientific discovery. Everyone has seen these cars zooming around with Porsche written on them. The ones I’ve been seeing this year are incredible: fast, comfortable, stylish. I remember seeing similar cars when I was a kid. Much more primitive, loud, remember that waaaaaaaaaa sound? And the doppler effect when it passed you. Wow!
Well I’ve been studying them and it seems every year they get a little better. Sometimes a new looking one would appear like a different branch of a tree. It would grow for a while. Some stopped and went extinct. Some kept on longer. It seems like the best features of each would be incorporated into a new one. Designs no longer necessary went away.
Well, this is incredible! Have you noticed the similarity to other cars. It’s the same way, they seem to evolve from primitive to more advanced and they all seem to have a common ancestor. I believe the earliest know motorized cars evolved from Germany, according to my studies. And before that there were these horse drawn buggies which seemed to proliferate.
This is my theory. These cars were not created. No, they evolved. They evolved from a common ancestor and from who knows what before that. Much more scientific research has to be done.
If animals can evolve, than why not cars? I’ve seen Star Trek, they put forth the theory that robots and micromachines can evolve, so I’m not the first.
I know I’m on to something here. You can’t tell me they were designed by some intelligent being. Not once have I ever met such a being. No one ever came to me or called me and said they designed it. Sure, I’ve read it in books, but who’s to say those books weren’t made up and changed over the years to suit the powers that be?
If it’s not possible that these cars evolved on their own, if it’s impossible for inanimate objects to evolve, than how is it possible for animate objects to evolve. Why can’t the same “life force” be in the cars in a different form?
Did you ever study the universe? Nature? Physics? Did you ever notice the similarity in design that runs through the entire creation? Is it not obvious? If not, than how can you imagine evolution? Isn’t evolution based on similarities?
Last night I saw a documentary on Frank Lloyd Wright. His architecture was fabulous and I couldn’t help but notice the similarity of his designs. You can look at one of his creations and tell it is of his design. You can look at a Porsche and tell it was designed by Porsche. You can tell a creator by his creation. His personality comes out in his design.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Verse 1 tells us that God (Elohim) created the heavens and the earth. Planets, stars, galaxies, you name it.

Isa 45:18For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

The words for without form and void are tohu and bohu and are tohu is used in both Isaiah and Genesis. When God created the earth it was a finished, beautiful creation. It later became a wasted and uninhabitable mess. The amount of time between verse 1 and verse 2 could have been and probably was billions of years. The earth and visible universe were destroyed by a war between the previous inhabitants (called angels in the Bible, and later demons after they rebelled) and God and the two thirds of the angels that were assigned to other posts. The king of the Earth was and to this day is Lucifer, now called Satan because of his rebellion. He was in charge of one third of the angels that God created, he still is. Satan is the god of this world and will remain so until Jesus Christ, who qualified to replace Satan as King of the Earth, returns to take his throne, the throne of David which still exists to this day.

Jeremiah 26:7 So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the LORD. 8 Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die. 9 Why hast thou prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate without an inhabitant? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of the LORD. 10 When the princes of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king's house unto the house of the LORD, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the LORD'S house. 11 Then spake the priests and the prophets unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die; for he hath prophesied against this city, as ye have heard with your ears. 12 Then spake Jeremiah unto all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that ye have heard. 13 Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you. 14 As for me, behold, I am in your hand: do with me as seemeth good and meet unto you. 15 But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears.

What's interesting to note here is that all the priests, prophets (their prophets), and all the people were living their lives oblivious to the fact that God had a problem with them. They were living there lives, like you and me, and didn't consider their actions wrong, to the contrary, they were priests, prophets, people of God. How dare this man come to them and pronounce a judgement against them from God! He must be crazy. The were going to kill him!
They were not go around thinking, I know I'm doing wrong, I know this church is deceived but I choose to attend anyway, I know God doesn't approve of the way I'm living but I don't care. Well, maybe some did, as today, in ignorance, but very few.

Re 12:9 -
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

It says and it means the whole world. Everyone. It is unbelievable how, layer upon layer, this world is truly deceived. The more you learn, uncover the lies, seek after the truth, peel away the layers, the more in awe you become of just how complete it is. And then you realize there is still more. And more. And more.

Just like you and me, they went to work, cooked, played with their kids, got married, whatever. They didn't live way back in the dusty past when they didn't know better. They lived (to them) in the here and now, like you do. We are not smarter about such things today, we just think we are. After all, it is the 21st century, I mean get with the program.

God has a witness here among us now (no, not me) and we (well, not me, I guess that makes me a nut as well) ignore him, think he's a nut, don't want to here it! But that will not stop the inevitable.

Nu 23:19
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Jer 26:13
Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you.

Luke 13:1 There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish."

Today was Joshua's last day at government school. He was supposed to bring home the supplies that we bought for him with our very own money that we work for. When I picked him up he said his teacher wouldn't let him bring them home and he couldn't give me a satisfactory answer why. So I parked and told him to go get his supplies. He came back and said his teacher was holding them until he brought back his library books. That sounded reasonable even though she could have said that before. I didn't know he left them home. We went home, he got his books and went back to the school. He gave the teacher his books and then she said he still couldn't have his supplies. Now she said we have to go to the office and fill out some paperwork to transfer him to another school. Well, they are his supplies, we obviously can't just keep him home from school without taking care of all that. I was told it was taken care of already but if not it certainly will be, that's no excuse to keep his crayons.
So, if we don't get him transferred he can't have his crayons. That's current state of the art for keeping kids in school! I hate government schools! The government doesn't do anything right, nothing! I have worked for the government and I know the attitudes and work habits people get when they work it. Happy flying everyone!

Heavy Sits The Crown about Saddam Hussein.

The following is the root reason why the Arab countries hate us so much.

Genesis 25:21
And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.

And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.

And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.

And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.

Blessing of Jacob (Israel, not the little nation of Israel that exists today, which is Judah, but all the nations of Israel and especially Ephraim and Manasseh.) Genesis 8:16 Let my name be named upon them
Genesis 27:28
Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:

Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

Blessing of Esau (Arab nations):
Genesis 27:39
And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;

And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

I'm not really in the mood to write anything right now but...

Is there really anyone who thinks man can solve the problems that face us today. That any country can actually govern itself, never mind fix the problems of the world. You gotta be kidding me! New Jersey just put another nail in the coffin of this great experiment called the United States of America.

Genesis 10 And God said to him, "Your name is Jacob; your name shall not be called Jacob anymore, but Israel shall be your name." So He called his name Israel. 11 Also God said to him: "I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body.

Genesis 8 Then Israel saw Joseph's sons, and said, "Who are these?" 9 And Joseph said to his father, "They are my sons, whom God has given me in this place." And he said, "Please bring them to me, and I will bless them." 10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim with age, so that he could not see. Then Joseph brought them near him, and he kissed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel said to Joseph, "I had not thought to see your face; but in fact, God has also shown me your offspring!" 12 So Joseph brought them from beside his knees, and he bowed down with his face to the earth. 13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim with his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh with his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them near him. 14 Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn. 15 And he blessed Joseph, and said: "God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has fed me all my life long to this day, 16 The Angel who has redeemed me from all evil, Bless the lads; Let my name be named upon them, And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; And let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth." 17 Now when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it displeased him; so he took hold of his father's hand to remove it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head. 18 And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head." 19 But his father refused and said, "I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations." 20 So he blessed them that day, saying, "By you Israel will bless, saying, 'May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh!' " And thus he set Ephraim before Manasseh.
