  1. On Matthew 6:24 I had a dream this morning that demonstrated to me the downward spiral from indulgence to immorality. It played out like the sequence in The Garden of Earthly Delights.
  2. Thank you for the verse. I would like to hear your interpretation as well. I like Bengel’s interpretation of the verse: “The heart of man cannot be so free as not to serve either God or (mammon)” Means there are only two choices for man: worldliness or godliness. There’s no opting out. “nor can it serve them both at once; (Although very many think themselves thoroughly versed in this art of combining both) for it either still remains in enmity with God or it takes God’s part.” Means we only kid ourselves thinking we can walk the line between worldliness and godliness. Worldliness is indulgence in pleasure and avoidance of pain, the will of the self. This is hypocritical, because to follow Jesus is to put his will before your own at every moment, even if it’s painful. https://biblehub.com/commentaries/bengel/matthew/6.htm Mammon has the same meaning as Plutus among the Greeks. It is not known that the Jews ever formally worshipped this idol, but they used the word to denote wealth. Plutus, in Greek religion, is god of abundance or wealth. In Aristophanes’ play Plutus, the god of wealth is blind and cannot tell good from evil. Plutus, the god of wealth, is depicted as a blind beggar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutus_(play) Wealth as a blind beggar is illustrative of its effects on us. Wealth causes spiritual darkness, so it is incompatible with God.
  3. Yeah I felt like moaning today. Thanks for talking to me. I too believe in heaven on earth and am beginning to see glimpses of it as I let go of my old self. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
  4. Also... This is a hairy subject, and it irritates some, but the idea that when the righteous die they directly ascend to heaven is not biblical. It is so sensitive because there are so many who believe their family members who have died are looking down on them from heaven. It’s a taboo subject to discuss. But I guess since there are few believers here, and I’m usually talking to myself anyway, it doesn’t matter either way.
  5. Everyone is ghetto trash in this case scenario. Suburban whites think they’re above [email protected]@s in the projects until a “crisis” hits. Then they’re all, “I gotta get mines.”
  6. Well the source I go by is the kjv Bible, not what this guy or that guy says is so. Yes there can be a debate as to the accuracy of the kjv but I’ll leave that for others who do their own translation. A practical way to start is to enter a search entitled “the time of the end book of Daniel Bible verses.” That is a starting point to the study. I don’t know you, so forgive me if you already know this: To engage only one aspect of the self, the intellect, when examining any biblical issue is to miss the point entirely. Bible study is to be accompanied by prayer that you will be guided to the truth. Not just rambling, but asking the Holy Spirit for help, along with doing the personal work God has given you to do so you will be acceptable in his sight. God wants us to know the truth, but he also wants us to come correct.
  7. What do you suppose is the case? An attempt to further cripple economies of red states by the new regime, a continuation of the Cold War between China and the US, or manipulation of demand to increase countrywide gasoline prices? Aside, everyone is a big jerk. The decent action is to let those who have to get to work fill up their tanks. But no. They wait in line for the gasoline truck to arrive to refill the pumps, then they stand there with 20 gallon cans and hold up the line because, just like the toilet paper, it’s “me first!” People thrive off of being in panic mode. Gives their little dead brains a jolt of electricity.
  8. “Blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system. A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computer systems on the blockchain.” Some say blockchain companies’ stock is undervalued.
  9. Shit I’m late finding out about this. All gas stations are out of gas and can’t get any. What a great way to segue into blockchain.
  10. Well gay violence in America in the 90s was not committed by religious groups it was done by thugs. Gay rehabilitation camps did exist in very scant numbers and by no means represent the whole of Christianity. Christians just want to be left alone. Problem is they are not being left alone. Okay yey for the gays. They won legal battles over discriminatory practices in the workplace, etc. but the movement is not satisfied. This new gay alphabet movement will only be satisfied when it is made illegal and punishable to even think that they were not born that way, much less think it is abominable. The new wave feminist movement won’t be satisfied until every white man thinks he is inherently evil and an abomination. This is no better than religious persecution committed by the Vatican over the centuries: an attempt to eliminate freedom of conscience by coercion and eventually violence. So what you are seeing is Christians becoming more vocal about what they believe, which is them exercising their right to freedom of conscience, and not compromising their values to the political movement that is the gay alphabet. So it is an oversimplification to take the issue out of the context of the times we live in. Does that make sense? But if you must do that: What goes on every night in Amsterdam is just as much an abomination to God as this subject here. In fact most of human activity is abominable if it is rooted in greed, lust, sloth, etc. So there is no time for considering the acts of others when the focus should be on righting oneself and making oneself clean by repentance and turning away from one’s own sinful ways.
  11. They are free to believe what they choose based on their own interpretations. Luther was not free from mistakes, neither is anyone. These are twisted folks, twisting the scripture and using it to condemn people and elevate themselves, which is contrary to the teaching of the Bible. We all are sinners according to the standard, which is the Ten Commandments. I’m glad you righted that situation which was clearly inappropriate. Just as inappropriate as other garbage circulating in schools, the web and movies. I agree with you on the subject of hell, that it is not biblical. As far as divine retribution is it healthy? Yes, if one (grown up) believes the book of Revelation is a valid part of the Bible, even a message from Jesus to John. It can strengthen one’s faith to know that God has been involved all along and not in some far off distant future. It’s a slippery slope to throw out Revelation because then why not throw out Daniel and any other prophetic books? Is it accurate? I wouldn’t know where to begin to look to answer skeptics. It seems a skeptic, no matter what one argues will never be satisfied, just as a believer, no matter how much their beliefs are contradicted will still believe.
  12. That’s a good question. There are some on the forum who are knowledgeable about zionists and secret societies, characters like Trump who are consumed with rebuilding the temple, etc. Zionists do not understand or refuse to accept that literal Jerusalem is no longer relevant to God in heaven. When it comes to literal or allegorical interpretations of Revelations I get tripped up too. Just listened to a talk about Revelation 21:16. It concerns the new Jerusalem, the city that will descend from the heaven to Earth after the second advent of Christ. “And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.“ They mentioned the measurements sound like those of a pyramid. A pyramid is prophesied to come to earth.
  13. @Morpheus Thanks for reading it. I do think we are living in the last days. Only using Bible prophecy here: The book of Daniel is key to Revelations. It states there will be 2300 years, from 457BC to 1844 AD, until “the sanctuary is restored.” This signifies when the judgement of Earth will commence. “Judgement Day” is not a literal day but an era beginning in 1844 AD and continuing through the present to the return of Jesus. This is when Jesus, our intercessor, is pleading our case to The Ancient of Days, when “the books are opened” and every man, living and dead, is judged according to his life on earth. So according to Bible prophecy, the 7th church (Laodicea in Rev 3:14) represents our era, the time of judgement. After the judgement is complete the business concerning the earth is settled. Jesus can return and claim his kingdom. This is why the seventh trumpet and plague will bring the end of our world. Astrologically speaking, no one can figure out if we are entering, have entered, or are close to the age of Aquarius. (Which, according to Aristotle, is significant). The conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn that just occurred: was it in the house of Aquarius? No one knows. And there were comets and there will be another this year, but are they significant to the end of the world? I’m not equipped to answer. However I do not believe it will be much longer before the great big earthquake of the seventh plague. Elon Musk’s SpaceX has goals of colonizing Mars. Although a number of rockets have blown up... https://nypost.com/2021/03/31/spacexs-biggest-bangs-a-brief-history-of-elon-musks-exploding-rockets/ I believe the end will come before colonization is achieved.
  14. Seven Time period - to end Trumpet - 7th Plague - 7th 7th trumpet Revelation 11:15-19 “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” 7th plague Revelation 16:17-21 “And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.” So this is the last chapter of our civilization’s history. Based on the previous 6 trumpets and plagues, it is very unlikely the present pandemic is the 7th plague that was poured in the air. The scenario goes like this: comet , planetary or solar event, then earthquakes, volcanoes, storms, changes to the magnetosphere, then the illnesses spread. So far no giant earthquake never before seen, no giant hail. Noah Webster’s accounts of these phenomena are numerous during each time period, some more significant than others. If anything, this pandemic may be a test for things to come. The elite secret organizations have studied Revelations more thoroughly than many Christians and are prepared for what is described in Revelations 6:15: “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains” They are ready for some future cataclysmic event, a solar event, comet or geomagnetic storm that will devastate the earth’s surface. They already have built their bunkers underground and in mountains where they will cower in the end. But do they have the gumption to attempt avert the effects of the next scheduled cataclysmic event? https://www.universetoday.com/137383/new-study-proposes-giant-space-based-solar-flare-shield-earth/ CERN ‘s Hadron collider: “The main dipoles generate powerful 8.3 tesla magnetic fields – more than 100,000 times more powerful than the Earth's magnetic field.” https://home.cern/science/engineering/pulling-together-superconducting-electromagnets Bill Gates dimming the sun: https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/a36014979/bill-gates-sun-blocking-experiment-postponed/ But despite all their desperate mitigation and preparation they do not know when it will happen. Neither do we. Matthew 24:36-44 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
  15. In the day when people lived outside they were more attuned. Because we live most of our lives indoors in artificial environments we are missing a lot. Like the moon. On this show “Forbidden History” they talked about the ancient moon wells that were situated to catch the reflection of the full moon at a certain time every 3 years...they kept calling it a keyhole. Keyhole, Keyhole. But if you take shrooms and go outside you will clearly see it’s the full moon and the moonbeam not a keyhole. We are so out of touch we can’t see the moonbeam. That’s what a 1/2 - 1g can do.
  16. 6th plague Revelations 16:12-16 “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” The Three Frogs of Revelations 16 The Enlightenment Brought faith in: Science - Darwinism Industrial Revolution Reason (so called)- Secularism - Marxism Nihilism —> Consumerism —> Scientism Esotericism - Freemasonry - Occultism - Spiritualism - Eastern mysticism Armageddon is Mount Megiddo in northern Israel, situated on an important trade route between Syria and Egypt. Napoleon’s army invaded Jaffa and Acra in Israel. The sieges didn’t physically take place at Mount Megiddo, but they were close, and located on the same strategic route as Megiddo. “The capture and violent sack of Jaffa the French army under Bonaparte on 7 March 1799 were rapidly followed by an outbreak of bubonic plague which decimated the army.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Jaffa They lost the siege of Acre in 1799. “Plague had struck the French camp as a result of the desperate condition of the men, and had by now led to the deaths of about 2,000 soldiers.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Acre_(1799) Celestial and earthly phenomena occurring before and during this time: In August 1797 appeared a comet, which, according to calculations of astronomers, passed near the earth, althogh it was of small apparent magnitude, and seen by few people. The fact of the influence of comets, in raising the waters of the ocean, is well established; and the appearance of a comet in autumn explained the phenomena of the tides. On the 19th of August, a storm and whirlwind in South Prussia tore up forests carried trees along like sheaves of wheat, and levelled several villages. In Rome and Naples happened a most extraordinary tempest on the 25th of September, such as the oldest man could not recollect. It took up men and carried them some distance. The astronomers were consulted and they ascribed it to the approximation of the comet. On the 7th of September, a considerable shock of earthquake was felt in the Western Pyrenees. On the 28th of the month was a volcanic eruption in Guadaloupe; and many earthquakes occurred during the autumn. In February, 1797, South-America was terribly convulsed. Quito and the neighboring provinces suffered, by the destruction of almost every house. Mountains were detached from their stations and rolled against each other, burying villages in ruin. Volcanoes emitted fire, lava, and rivers of water. It is said, that 40,000 inhabitants perished. On the 11th of January 1798 a shock of earthquake was felt in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and the neighboring towns, during which appeared to issue from the earth a flame or blaze, like the burning of a chimney. In this month, the severe cold reached the West-Indies, Jamaica. A small earthquake was felt there in January. In February 1797 also violent earthquakes were experienced on the western coast of Sumatra, in the East-Indies (Webster, Noah).
  17. Six Time period - to 1840s Trumpet - 6th Plague - 6th 6th trumpet Revelations 9:13-21 “And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” Napoleon’s army, wore colors of red, blue and gold. The mouths that issued fire, smoke, and brimstone were their cannons. Napoleon was a Freemason and was intent on taking esoteric knowledge during his conquests in the ancient lands. https://oginski.by/en/napoleon-imperator-masonov/ He invaded Vatican City and captured the pope in 1798. This is known in biblical terms as “the beast who received the mortal wound.” What knowledge, books, relics did Napoleon’s Masonic friends obtain from the Vatican during the invasion? Napoleon’s army invaded Egypt and famously found the Rosetta Stone. What other relics or knowledge did they obtain there? His army also invaded Israel where they were stricken with bubonic plague...
  18. Right on pi! It would be presumptuous to think that God would deny anyone who is earnestly seeking Him. Catholic, Buddhist, Muslim, we are all on our own paths. Macnamara shared how he started and where he is now. I’ve shared and so did you. If one is calling out for God, He will not deny that person, no matter who he is, what religion, or what he has done in the past. If one is not seeking God, not open to the concept, or on a mission to prove God does not exist, those things will be so for that person’s mind and heart.
  19. I never thought chemtrails would ever go mainstream but here we are. At 58 seconds they actually describe the process with a cartoon.
  20. There are also backwoods in Murica where they take up snakes and speak tongues like buleedubuh doopoo. That’s low hanging fruit found in every back woods in every religion on earth, representative of a small minority. Some Native Americans believe the first man was made of snot blown out of the goddess’ nose, so we may be snot creatures instead of dust.
  21. America is just as bad or worse. You may not believe in Satan, but you for sure know his followers exist. Call it the ‘satanic strategy’ or call it a byproduct of progress and innovation. Either way the name of the game is distraction. They tried killing Christians off for centuries but they only ended up creating martyrs and strengthening people’s conviction. It’s amazing how people gain resolve under persecution. However with endless distraction: rat race, things, overeating, entertainment, keeping up with the Joneses, not only are 1st world people sheltered from real suffering in the world, they are oblivious to the state of their own souls. They don’t know their souls are in peril. It’s like winning a war without firing a shot.
  22. Nowhere in the Bible does it say the earth is 6000 yrs. old.
  23. What’s a chav? Is that like trailer trash? Googled it and it said they wear track suits.
  24. Attacks, distortions, or criticism of the Christian faith are welcomed. Also if you believe you are not real and nothing is real and you are living a fake life inside a computer simulation that is better received. I like your posts, though.
  25. Curious...what have you found through the filter of Jung? All I know of his work is dreams and archetypes. Wasn’t he on the eastern religious path? Interesting perspective on Protestantism. The truths and teachings in the Bible are all I need, but my imagination is kind of wild on its own. The celebration church down the road has a lot of flashing lights, loud musical productions, multimedia sermons, and it’s just way too much. I can see the need though, to put on a show to break through the numbness. What I have learned in less than a year about the path of Christianity is simple in theory, but transforming in practice: Prayerfully study the Bible and repent, turn away from the sinful life. In practice it is a discipline like meditation; each moment reforming the selfish, destructive nature of my mind. Filtering thoughts: are they idle, evil, Godly? I am also required to bear fruit, meaning no longer be a taker, but a wholehearted giver. Remember the suffering and help. It is not sexy, glamorous, or self-aggrandizing, but it is not passive. When contemplating God and God’s love for us it is so overwhelmingly beautiful this gift of life. Makes me a crybaby.
