  4. Matthew 13 13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: "You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving."15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it. Notice at the end of this...A BLESSING....A blessing from God...THE EYES HAVE IT....I question my Lord why do my eyes see...why is it soooo clear to me...its in Black and White… I think the Bible....is the most misunderstood book.....and its because of this verse Since the beginning of this book in the 1400's....and even earlier....its been misrepresented and understood Its like this...In the early days of America...a household...MIGHT...have a family Bible in the living room or dining room ….In it...was pictures...maybe stories...relatives...friends....pictures its kind of what the Bible is...but...it has only certain players...or certain family members...BIG FAMILIES…Ive always been fascinated by this verse in the first chapter of Romans 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. I never quite really ....quite ....understood what it was saying but as I matured in my understanding...I realize Ive been looking at it....and evryone else.... completely wrong. This book....Is All about the Jews....Its ALL about Israel.....Its all about God Romans Chapter 2 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) 16 This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares. The Bible is many things…A CookBook…a field guide It is alive….it certainly isn’t dead…The only thing that changes….is man…and not God….God is absolute Man is the variable….with over 2000 years of freewill and choice….man has destroyed his sanity and his environment….and the Bible has predicted this from the beginning…..Man cannot live without God…what you see on the Earth….right now….Is mankind without God….Its Godless and immoral You hear this ALL the time….Jesus Christ walked this earth and was crucified…..for my sins….so that I might live in the city of God forever. WELL…its sort of right…..As Ive said…this is all about the Jews and God…It always has been…The Gentiles (or nations) wasn’t even apart of the program. Christ …Spoken by the prophets…appeared on this Earth….when Israel was completely destroyed….and Jerusalem was more of a Roman province ….Jewish exiles returned to Israel…but most of the Jews were dispersed into the world…Christ came upon this Earth to set up his Kingdom…He didn’t boast…HEY LOOK…IM YOUR KING Isaiah 53 explains what Christ did upon this Earth…He performed…NUMEROUS miracles…Christ preached on the Gospel of The Kingdom of God…He showed himself …to be who he was…without being boastful….and because of corruption in the hands of the local religious Jewish cults…They became jealous…and fearful of Christ undoing their seats of power…They tortured and murdered Christ. FOR THIS…A NEW CONTRACT Completely different from anything God has done in the lives of mankind. Because of Christs obedients to the cross…Evry human on the planet….NOT JUST THE JEWS….evryone was invited….BY GOD….to share in the contract of GRACE…This didn’t carry all the baggage… current contracts of the law that God required the Jews to follow….Just one simple….understanding….If you believe in JESUS CHRIST….you are saved…That’s it….thats all THIS IS THE CONTRACT OF GRACE….given by God The conflict between God and the Jews was temporally put on hold. When the fulfillment of the gentiles has reached capacity….When Israel comes into the Earth….When mankind has become completely lawless and has destroyed the Earth 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. In my previous post I explained about this rebellion AND…OH YEA…that rebellion is in full swing and Christ is at our doorstep…Christ is about to extract…THOSE…who’s names are written in the Lambs book of life…..and the AntiChrist and the False Prophet…having a short contract with God….ASSUMES POWER….and they begin to destroy mankind and the Earth. Gentiles (or nations) understand nothing of what the Bible is about, this contract of Grace….SALVATION for those who believe in Jesus Christ…This is like the calm before the storm….Prophecy…Gifts….speaking in tongues….they don’t exist….Its between the Jews and God…when Christ died….EVRYONE…entered the eye of the storm….all communication is temporally suspended…we are in this age of Grace until this contract of salvation is fulfilled….when Christ takes his chosen….and God returns to Israel….and Judgement begins….One more passage to those who understand this field guide….the Bible 1 Corinthians Chapter 6 do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. Understand this….You were bought with a price…There is great power in understanding this knowledge…along with this chapter Ephesians Chapter 6 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Understanding what is taking place God gave you a human suit God gave you the ability to stand in the darkness God gave you a mind to discern situations Think of yourself as Gods statue Maintain it Mow the grass around it And dress it in Kevlar The worst is yet to come….and how much I can say only one thing Christs chosen will not suffer wrath Christ paid the price and Christ is knocking at your door….RIGHT NOW…saying…GET READY
  5. I guess to start this out..... is a passage that apply's to my life....its been with me since I was a kid....it was an additive that fueled my divorce....its when Im forced to go into a court room....my religious beliefs are all about this passage........1 Corinthians Chapter 6.... 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies .....So...if you think about this....As a Christian....one that believes in God.....this is all about you......God gives you... a statue of you...and you stare at......like I do evryday.....it keeps things real.....This about life.....this is all about who you are....you clean and polish this statue of you.....you become attached.... to you....as a Christian you feel obligated to maintain.... this statue of you......but not all ways....sometimes......life draws your focus away from who you are.....the statue of you begins to attract creeping vines ....that climb all over it.....tall grass.... begins to hide your visage....and soon....you forget who you are.......This is what the Bible is....Its about man....its about God.....God requires your obedience....its not something you have to do.....but this statue of you begins to weather and age....Sin erodes the foundation.....it falls into disrepair.....but.....its not like God hasnt given you any tools to repair and restore.... this statue of you.....Thats what the Bible is....its a repair manual.....Virtues.... like peace....and love.....kindness.....and understanding....polish its exterior.......keeping the rust from spreading.......This is not something..... that is not just words im trying to convey....this is real......You have chains and manacles on your legs....and you have no clue they exist....but they do.....The earth is a prison......and your not getting off this planet alive or dead......Oh .....but there is a way.....Its the gift of God.....a free gift.....he dosnt ask for anything.....you cant take it back to the store and exchange it.....it dosnt have any rules or requirements.....just believe....really simple.....right.....you dont have to tell your wife......just believe....thats all.......as Ive said....the world is a prison....it is owned and operated by Satan Inc.....he tried to give it to Christ....but as Scripture points out....for a Christian....this is not our Home....Sin and mankinds imperfections and freewill have destroyed what God created.....For Christians.....our home is forever....and eternal.....and with God.....As sin rises in the earth....as people make sinful choices to govern there lives.....Christians have been forced to accept American social evils....but to what extent you allow its evil to push forward.....God gives us an upgrade......Ephesians 6........ 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh [fn] and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in [fn] addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.......So its back to the statue of you.....in our lifetime....your going to need evrything possible to shore up....This statue of you... .....This statue of you....in our lifetime....God provides you with Armour....so put it on.....you want to know why the world has problems.....there is a stark contrast ....between when God was needed....which was present with the pioneers at the expansion of America in the 1800's....God and family and good moral values lasted into the 60's....but now....Matthew 24... "Because lawlessness is increased, most [fn] people's love will grow cold. ....and we are seeing this in huge measures......In America....God is forgotten.....This is some scary knowledge....if you've read the passage above....notice....rulers....powers....spiritual forces.....most Christians are unaware of this....its not just God you should be afraid of.....its Gods massive kingdom...and those forces that are set in motion by God for those who are disobedient....lawless....Those who are not written in the Lambs Book of Life.....and when judgement comes......dont say I didnt try to introduce you to the actors that have active roles in the conclusion of the world
  6. Explain the difference between Translations and Paraphrases......Thats the craziness of scripture.....translations....thats the reason for so many heated arguments...one translation that just came to life was the idea Jesus was a carpenter....and they say the translation reflects a day laborer....and that makes more sense then a carpenter....because when you look at what Jesus was doing in life....he was helping out mankind....and also in archaeology.....its much more.....MUCH MUCH MORE.....from the caves of Qumran.....to pottery and coins from Sodom and Gomorrah....also a scroll found on the black market by a Jewish scholar...death threats have been sent to this scholar if he reveals the contents.....its a treasure map....and ancient digs are continuing....also in Egypt....they say only 10% of ancient Egypt has been discovered....
  7. I dont know how to do this...so i used this forum to contact you...It was in regards to your warnings....I think when you look at this forum....i think its great...i think.... you ...need to lay down some different rules....and possibly have a place were people can complain about others..... with negative views of other people posting.... and those that do post have the right to express their views,,,,some people get offended of other peoples religious views...give them a place they can express their concerns of others.... those that dont believe in what the author of the post is trying to convey....their religious beliefs.....ME.....i think ITS GREAT....this forum is about beliefs....thoughts and other peoples idea of whatever they believe....I love it.....I love to write....I love to express my beliefs....Im going to college....and writing here is therapeutic for my college experience...I SAY....let them write what they will....people will see the different views expressed on this website....isnt that what its all about....peoples views....please....Handle each on an individual basis....this web site is about diversity....please continue
  8. I do have the right to make a post on this forum....I do have a voice on the ULC.....I started this post....and thinking you can spread what you believe is right....well.....people read these post....and they see how vicious the Atheist can be......Ive done nothing but preach the word of God....and I think people see that.....HEY DAN....your comment is right out of scripture......lets do some Jonathan Font....MATTHEW 13..... “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “ ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. 15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’..........How about that for artistic style delivery
  9. Evrytime I make a post...you attack my Christianity.....i write the way that I do...because im an artist....and I will write however i choose....Its called Freedom of Speech...and if you cant read it...stay off my posts...
  10. I guess in your simple thinking....you say...nobody believes you.....but in my understanding I know you cant stop the click of a mouse...and your the only ones I now that seem to think your message has more value than my Christianity....But I know people read my posts.....and that has a lot to say.....I dont think their is one intelligent aspect you have presented against my Christianity ...and i think people that read my posts....and see that
  11. I dont really value cuchulain or Johnathan's opinion.....i think your uneducated....you only have one opinion...and that's yours....Ive been told on this Forum I can post my thoughts and knowledge...and you cant stop me from doing that....obviously you feel the need to evaluate what i write....and it just dosnt carry any weight......
  12. In my previous posts...I explained the course of mankind....1 Thessalonians 5 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. I guess you could say this is the doomsday clock....It started at the industrial age ....man extracts minerals and oils from the earth....VAST AMOUNTS....its been going on for over 100 years....you dont think.... that has anything to do with what is happening in the world today....as Ive said...its been 70 years since Israel became a nation....and God said ....God will return to Israel....the problems with life....the problems with American society....are beginning to to arise....like a woman that is about ready to give birth.....How long do you feel that scientists.... who have been studying global warming ....are going to address the world with doom and gloom.....or should i say....Desperation that something MUST be done ....its going to happen.....Just recently.....Pete Buttigieg....just announced his presidential run...the first openly gay man to do this...and he kissed his domestic partner....the rise of Liberal America is happening at a feverish pace.....Nancy Pelosi's 60 minute interview....reveals a very unintelligent woman who like s to play games....mankind isnt headed toward recovery....its headed for destruction.....The Bible said this about man.....the Bible told the outcome of mankind....absent of Gods plan.....it is because of Freewill that we push forward to destruction.....because of one simple aspect mankind cannot do......its impossible....mankind cannot simply stop
  13. Pace of Bering Sea changes startles scientists A satellite photo provided by the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Geographic Information Network of Alaska shows clouds partially covering open water in the northern Bering Sea, the Bering Strait and the Chukchi Sea on Monday, March 4, 2019. St. Lawrence Island is in the foreground. Warm winds in mid-February melted or blew off much of the sea ice in the northern Bering Sea, a region historically covered by sea ice throughout the winter. (University of Alaska Fairbanks/Geographic Information Network of Alaska photo via AP) ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Yupik Eskimo village of Kotlik on Alaska's northwest coast relies on a cold, hard blanket of sea ice to protect homes from vicious winter Bering Sea storms. Frigid north winds blow down from the Arctic Ocean, freeze saltwater and push sea ice south. The ice normally prevents waves from forming and locks onto beaches, walling off villages. But not this year. In February, southwest winds brought warm air and turned thin sea ice into "snow cone ice" that melted or blew off. When a storm pounded Norton Sound, water on Feb. 12 surged up the Yukon River and into Kotlik, flooding low-lying homes. Lifelong resident Philomena Keyes, 37, awoke to knee-deep water outside her house. "This is the first I experienced in my life, a flood that happened in the winter, in February," Keyes said in a phone interview. Winter storm surge flooding is the latest indication that something's off-kilter around the Bering Strait, the gateway from the Pacific Ocean to the Arctic Ocean. Rapid, profound changes tied to high atmospheric temperatures, a direct result of climate change, may be reordering the region's physical makeup. Ocean researchers are asking themselves if they're witnessing the transformation of an ecosystem. The Bering Sea last winter saw record-low sea ice. Climate models predicted less ice, but not this soon, said Seth Danielson, a physical oceanographer at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. "The projections were saying we would've hit situations similar to what we saw last year, but not for another 40 or 50 years," Danielson said. Walruses and seals use sea ice to rest and give birth. Villagers use sea ice to hunt them. Sea ice is the primary habitat of polar bears. Algae that clings to the bottom of sea ice blooms in spring, dies and sinks, sending an infusion of food to clams, snails and sea worms on the ocean floor — the prey of gray whales, walruses and bearded seals. Sea ice also affects commercially valuable fish. Sea ice historically has created a Bering Sea "cold pool," an east-west barrier of extremely cold, salty water at the bottom of the wide, shallow continental shelf. The wall of cold water historically has concentrated Pacific cod and walleye pollock in the southeastern Bering Sea. "It tends to extend from the Russian side to the northwest," said Lyle Britt, a fisheries biologist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. "It kind of comes down almost like a little hockey stick shape ... through the center of the southeast Bering Sea." However, when Britt and other NOAA researchers last year conducted annual fish and ocean condition surveys, they got a big surprise: For the first time in 37 years, they found no cold pool. Researchers found high concentrations of Pacific cod and walleye pollock in the northern Bering Sea. But the species that was supposed to be there, Arctic cod, was hardly found. More than half the fish landed in U.S. waters come from the North Pacific, and most are caught in the Bering Sea. Chad See, executive director of the Freezer Longline Coalition, a trade association of vessels that target Pacific cod using baited lines, said members caught their quota last year but had to travel farther north. "Does that mean that the stock is declining, is suffering because of the warming temperatures? Or is it that they've moved north and it's still a vibrant fishery?" See said. It's too soon to conclude that atmosphere and ocean changes are due simply to climate change, said NOAA physical oceanographer Phyllis Stabeno, who has studied the Bering Sea for more than 30 years. The southern Bering Sea since 2000 has undergone multi-year stanzas of low and extensive ice, she said. When sea ice in November began forming as usual, she expected a bounce-back this winter. Instead, warm winds in February mostly cleared the northern Bering Sea of sea ice through the Bering Strait into the Chukchi Sea. "We're in winter," she said. "This is all supposed to be frozen." Formation of the cold pool is again in doubt. It could return in the future, but temperatures are trending upward with the rate of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere. Scientists say figuring out the ocean physics is far less of a challenge than projecting the biological ramifications. "We sort of opened up this whole Pandora's box of not really knowing how the ecosystem as a whole is going to adjust to that," Danielson said. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service early last summer detected trouble. Resident called with reports of emaciated and dead seabirds. Common murres, which can use up fat reserves and starve after three days without eating, fly hundreds miles to find fish schools or krill but were washing up dead on shore. Forktail storm petrels, fulmars, shearwaters, kittiwakes, auklets and puffins also died. No one can say why. Seabird experts wonder whether the presence of more pollock and Pacific cod, which have voracious appetites and are far more efficient hunters of forage fish than seabirds, was a factor. Dean Stockwell, a research associate professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a specialty in phytoplankton, said the ocean changes have the potential to affect plant life at the bottom of the food web but it's too soon to know. Of immediate concern is whether warmer water will allow harmful algae containing toxins to stay viable long enough for shellfish to eat them and pass toxins to marine mammals and people. Toxins are being carried to the Arctic, Stockwell said. "The question with global warming types of things is, 'Can it get a foothold? Can they do damage?'" he said. Seabird experts wonder if toxins played a role in recent seabird deaths by affecting their ability to forage. No one has connected the dots, said Britt, the NOAA fisheries biologist. "At the moment, nobody's sitting with in-hand a comprehensive research study that covers the birds and the mammals and the fish and the zooplankton all in one synthesized report," he said, adding that it will take researchers more time to figure out what's going on. Meantime, Kotlik resident Keyes is researching climate change effects in her coastal village of 650 as project coordinator for a team working under a Bureau of Indian Affairs program. The absence of sea ice since mid-February meant taking land routes to visit nearby villages, she said. And seal hunters this spring found bearded seals to harvest but not near the village. Like the cod fishermen, "They had to go farther north," Keyes said.
