Today we light the first Advent Candle, in a Christmas tradition that points (for five consecutive weeks) toward the annual Christian celebration of the coming of Jesus Christ. To the casual observer we may take the concept of a€?prophecya€? as somewhat of a a€?hum-druma€? or even unbelievable fantasy a€“ after hearing the concept used, or misused, or even abused by the media, the movies, or by the self-made modern day false prophets or clairvoyants that can be seen failing to predict the future. How trustworthy is any religion if their founder or holy book proclaims a future event to be true, and it fails to come to pass? If I were a self-made spiritual leader, and if I did not want to be proven inaccurate in my predictions, there is one thing I would do. The Bible is the Only Religious Holy Book in the world that consistently includes predictive Prophetic Revelations, which can be precisely measured for their accuracy, to thus become open, transparent and accountable for all mankind to observe and test.
There are no predictive a€?propheciesa€? in any sacred, revered, or a€?holya€? books that are in any way similar to the hundreds of predictive prophecies clearly declared and fully measurable in the Judeo-Christian Bible.
If God accurately predicts the future and has said He has a place prepared for us, then we can trust whatever happens to us into Goda€™s Hands.
28A And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming.
58A Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 32A a€?From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. Students of the Bible are aware of the prophecies regarding Israel and we watch with anticipation what God is going to do in these last days. In order to reveal the reality and certainty of Himself to mankind, in addition to the revelation of Himself through Creation all around us, God established supernatural statements, through His prophets, for the foretelling of future events. God looked across the span of time and in His mind established His plana€¦before the beginning of the world.
His was a plan to bring to Himself a Bride, not of those whom He created as angelic beings, but from those created in His own Image, who would of His own choosing and the choosing of those whom He created, to mysteriously and uniquely become one with Himself. God gave glimpses of His plan throughout the multiple thousand-year spans of time in the writing of the Old and New Testaments. This Plan of the Ages would not be without excruciating pain a€“ even the death of His Son.
The Revelation of the Plan through Prophecy was not revealed all at the same time, but revealed incrementally, each part in a€?the fullness of timea€? so that the plan could not be manipulated by His enemy, Satan (1 Cor. These prophecies in the Bible were not proclaimed in vague a€?Edgar Cayce typea€? sentences, or filled with mystic incantations or cloaked with multiple-meanings to give any possibility of diverse fulfillment (or provide an easy cover-up of failure). Biblical prophecies were given in specific, undeniable detail, such as, a€?for my clothing they cast lotsa€? [Cited from Ps. 2A But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. 4A Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
These are many, but not all of the Old Testament Prophetic Messianic passages fulfilled (or reiterated to be revealed at a future date) in the New Testament. People might feel like they can get away with violating a traffic law or cheating on their taxes, but God and His laws work much differently. Answer: A Yes, God knows each one of us (every person on earth) better than we know ourselves. Answer: A Because there is only one narrow path that leads to godlikeness, and thus to His kingdom.
Answer: A God permits disobedience and sin to continue until all people everywhere are at last fully convinced of God's justice, love, and mercy.
Answer: A If I have had no opportunity to learn a certain Bible truth, God does not hold me accountable. Jesus says that He will call them to His true way, and His true sheep will hear and follow (John 10:16, 27). 21A For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
God sees everything we do, hears everything we say, and He really does care about how we behave. All will finally realize that God, by requiring obedience, is not trying to force His will upon us, but rather is trying to keep us from hurting and destroying ourselves. He promises to keep me from error and lead me safely to all truth if I: (1) pray earnestly for guidance, (2) sincerely study God's Word, and (3) follow truth as soon as I am shown. But the Bible teaches that I am responsible to God for all the light (knowledge of right) I have and all I can have! Satan, in order to make God's requests appear unreasonable, invented the falsehood that obedience is impossible. We must give God credit for being wise enough to require some things of us we may not understand. He knows that all disobedience is sin and that sin brings unhappiness, tragedy, alienation from God, and eventual destruction.
He promises that just as He worked a miracle to bring us the new birth, He will also continue to work needed miracles in our lives (as we gladly follow Him) until we are safe in His kingdom.
Matthew 7:21-23 makes it clear that many who prophesy, cast out devils, and do many wonderful works in Christ's name will be lost but will think they are saved. 34A Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. While the Lord offers forgiveness for our sins, there still are deadly consequences for breaking God's law. The Bible is the map and guidebook with full instructions, warnings, and information on how to safely reach that kingdom.
The sin problem is not settled until even the most cynical and hardened sinners are convinced of God's love and confess that He is just. This being true, surely it is high time to abandon all fuzziness regarding what is right or wrong.
It seems so harmless to wait, but the Bible teaches that unless a person acts immediately upon light, it quickly turns to darkness. When a person knowingly rejects light and continues in disobedience, the light eventually goes out, and he is left in total darkness. The Bible is speaking here not of one single act or sin but of a presumptuous continuation in sin and a refusal to surrender to Christ after one knows better. Holman concise Bible commentary: Simple, straightforward commentary on every book of the Bible (265a€“267). God does not promise eternal life to those who merely make a profession of faith or are church members or are baptized, but rather to those who do His will, which is revealed in Scripture. It will take perhaps a major catastrophe or worse to convince some, but the horrible results of sinful living will finally convince all that God is just and right. People had better stop letting their own foolish whims and egotistical notions guide them and pay attention to God's great book.
Of this group, only two (Caleb and Joshua) fully followed the Lord, and they alone entered Canaan. Obstacles to obedience are not removed while we stand and wait; instead, they usually increase in size. No child will fully obey his parents unless he loves them, nor will he love his parents if he does not obey. Simple faith and trust in God will cause us to believe that He knows what is best for us and will never lead us in any wrong path.
Those who refuse to obey God will end up believing a lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12) and thus think they are saved when instead they are lost. It is folly for us, in our ignorance, to question God's leadership, even when we may not fully understand all His reasons. People who won't accept the plain teachings of the Bible would not be convinced by a sign either. Matthew 15 starting in verse 7-9 (Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees but it applies to all of us) ---- "You rejected what God said for the sake of your own rules. Freedom without obedience is like the false freedom of the drifting balloon or the driverless car.
Isaiah was right what he said about you: a€?These people show honor to me with words, but their hearts are far from me. THESE VERY SAME ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, WHO HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT AND SERVE, OUR COUNTRY, AND CITIZENS ,ARE BUT SOME, OF THE CORRUPT,GREEDY TRAITORS .ENGAGED IN THE TYRANNY AND TORTURE. If the Bible had not been given, people would sooner or later have discovered (by trial and error) that the great principles of the Bible exist and are true. A A THEREFORE, MAN IS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF CONTAINING THE CONTENT OF GOD; THUS, WITHOUT RECEIVING GOD IN OUR SPIRIT, WE CANNOT EXPRESS GOD AS CONFIRMED IN 2 COR. The honor they show me is nothing but human rules.a€?Matthew 23 starting in verse 25a€”You are hypocrites!


So the words of the Bible are not merely advice which we can accept or ignore without consequences. You wash the outside of your cups and dishes but inside they are full of things you got by cheating others and by pleasing only yourselves.Matthew 23 starting in verse 27 a€“ You are hypocrites! A person cannot live any way he wishes and still become godlike any more than a builder can ignore the blueprints for a house without running into trouble.
Outside, those tombs look fine, but inside they are full of the bones of dead people and all kinds of unclean things. They dona€™t go to Confession and that is the only way the Catholic Church says that their sins will be forgiven. They dona€™t go to the Stations of the Cross, they practice sex outside of marriage, they dona€™t say their rosary, and they dona€™t do anything that Catholics are supposed to do. Just because at one time when they were a baby they were baptized Catholic and maybe went to Church when they were younger they consider themselves Catholic. UNLIKE IN THE NATURAL BIOGRAPHY, THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION OR FEAR OF SIN AND DEATHBECAUSE, IN CHRIST, THERE IS LIFE,LIBERTY, AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
What about the other 51 masses they missed that their church considers sins that they did not confess to a priest.
The ones who actually practice their faith are good Christians and should be accepted by all other Christians as being in the body of Christ.
Episcopalians, Lutherans, Bible Protestants, Methodists, and yes even inter-denominational people. I work with someone who says he belongs to my church but he has not gone to it in a very long time.
What I am talking about are those who quickly throw out in conversation that they are practicing Christians and have not seen a church in years or months. People who profess that they are something when they are not practicing what they say they believe in.
Is it that they dona€™t want their little world complicated by what they say they believe in? MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS A LOVE STORY THAT REVEALS THE HEART OF GODA THROUGH THE PERSON OF HIS SON, JESUS. They may try to deceive you (Not many of us are deceived by this) but they cannot deceive God.
THEREFORE, A PERSON MUST HAVE FIRST PLACED THEIR FAITH IN CHRIST FOR SALVATION BEFOREA TAKINGA COMMUNION (MATT.
Did they not understand the meaning of Evangelical in the name of the Church they attested to be members in? The school district has moved to a biometric identification program, saying students will no longer have to use an ID card to buy lunch.A  BIOMETRICS TO TRACK YOUR KIDS!!!!!i»?i»?A TARGETED INDIVIDUALS, THE GREEDY CRIMINALS ARE NOW CONDONING THEIR TECH! Get involved, help out, fellowship with other believers and most of all a€“ establish a relationship with the God and Savior that died for us on the cross.
The body of Christ waits for you to re-join it and be a part of the salvation of God and Jesus Christ.
I have to believe that the 300 Bishops that sorted out the different Gospels for Constantine did a good job within the Holy Spirit of God.
That Martin Luther and all that followed him that were editing and translating the Bible were being led by God and His Spirit along the way.
The Bible has lasted for thousands of years now and is fully accepted as Goda€™s word and instructions.
If we remove or make light of any part of it, we cast a shadow on the rest of its validity. Back in the 70a€™s several faiths said that we do not have to believe in the Garden of Eden and the story of Adam and Eve.
It was OK to believe in Evolution as long as you, at some point, accepted the fact that Goda€™s hand controlled it all. Some passages in the Bible are referred to by some Pastors as taken from myths or stories at the time that they were written. Maybe thousands of years later we do not understand what the writers were describing or saying but that does not make it untrue.
The Jewish leaders left everything in what we Christians call the Old Testament not because it might have been a myth or untruth.
The 300 Bishops of Constantinea€™s era and scholars like Martin Luther did not leave things in the New Testament because it might be the word of God. His breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from his mouth.a€? Some people believe this was an alligator. 1-2: When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were beautiful and they married any of them they chose.
Genesis states that in the first day, God said, a€?Let there be light,a€? and there was light. Many people over the centuries have tried to explain them away in the context of human experiences and logic.
I placed him on his knees next to his bed with his hands folded and I uttered some simple prayers while he listened.
Paul Weindling, history of medicine professor at Oxford Brookes University, describes his search for the lost victims of Nazi experiments.
When we were children praying was simple but as we grew up most of us memorized long prayers to repeat to the Lord. The chairman of the board at ESL a€” then proprietor of the desert wasteland in Nevada known as a€?Area 51a€? a€” was William Perry, who would be appointed secretary of defense several years later.
Even the a€?Lorda€™s Prayera€? or as it is called a€?The Our Fathera€? was memorized out of scripture or a prayer book and repeated at bed time or in Church. Praying is important as Christians but it does not need to be memorized, complicated, long, repeated, or burdensome.
EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr. Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid. Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. Tell Him how you feel about Him, what you want in life, the problems you have that you need help with, and confess your faults to Him. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines.
Throughout the day and maybe the night include Him in your thoughts and have short conversations with Him.
If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. 5-8 (NAB): a€?When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners so that others may see them. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories. But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words. The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity. 5-7(NLT): But if you pray to God and seek the favor of the Almighty, an if you are pure and live with integrity, he will surely rise up and restore your happy home. However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results.
One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed.


However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem.
Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities. One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach.
Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour.
Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close.
Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with.
There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. A nightmare of a storm just hit you and then the sun shines through the clouds and the winds subside. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants. Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip. We may have to experience many storm fronts until the mountain of our problem passes by and out to sea. If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments.
Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime. But no matter how big our storms may be or how powerful a hurricane is there is a power that is greater. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months. He is bigger than all of our problems and he will hold your hand while youa€™re going through it and bring you out of darkness into the light. Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep.
We are perishing!a€? He said to them, a€?Why are your terrified, O you of little faith?a€? Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm. The men were amazed and said, a€?What sort of man is this, whom even the winds and the sea obey?a€?Matthew 11, vs.
Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, a€?Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,a€™ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him. Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours.a€?1 Corinthians, vs. One was telling the other all the bad things he had done in life and the bad things done to him. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling. I said, a€?But God still loves you.a€? That small statement had a great impact on him and his friend reinforced my statement. 2 (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census.
4 And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, Davida€™s ancient home. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.
The Shepherds and AngelsA 8 That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep.
9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lorda€™s glory surrounded them. 11 The Saviora€”yes, the Messiah, the Lorda€”has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! Leta€™s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.a€?A A 16 They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. 17 After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. 18 All who heard the shepherdsa€™ story were astonished, 19 but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.
20 The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. He was righteous and devout and was eagerly waiting for the Messiah to come and rescue Israel. The Holy Spirit was upon him 26 and had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lorda€™s Messiah. I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms.
So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required, 28 Simeon was there.
34 Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the babya€™s mother, a€?This child is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, but he will be a joy to many others.
You see, before the crucifixion of Jesus, people had to offer a sacrifice of an animal for an offering to the Lord for their sins. Jesus who was residing in Heaven with and in God looked down on the people and made a conscience decision to take on a human form and go through life as we do and then die an agonizing death on the cross as a sin offering for all of us. His decision to do this was the ultimate sacrifice for sin and because of this offering we today just have to believe and accept Him as our Savior to have our sins forgiven.
Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat. Since we are all sinners and have hurt God, He probably had to pick the most suffering form of execution on the face of the earth in order for the sacrifice to have the desired impact on our forgiveness. If you never have watched the Mel Gibson movie a€?The Passion of the Christa€?, it would be a good time to do so.
When we look on the image of the little baby Jesus laying in the Manger we seldom realize that He already knew how He was to suffer some 30+ years later. It is a time to celebrate our Saviors birth and the very start of His journey towards our redemption. She was running to the store to get more supplies to bake Christmas cookies and we were getting our Tree. While we were picking the tree out, we heard the ambulance and police sirens but never realized that it was her in an accident.
It was only by Goda€™s grace, a lot of love, medical treatment and counseling that we still have her here. My wife and I arrived a A? hour after it started and there was already an hour and a half wait.
It was very very humbling for me as I reflected on who would come to my funeral and what kind of send off that I would receive.
We should think of what we would want Jesus to say and think about us when we meet him in Heaven. Covey also asks, a€?What is just one thing right now that you can do to improve your self?a€? He then asks, a€?Why are you not doing it?a€? You may have wandered down the wrong road in life but there is still time to change routes. Matthew 15 starting in verse 7-9 (Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees but it applies to all of us) ---- "You rejected what God said for the sake of your own rules.
