The Assembly of the Rightly Guided

In the 7th Mansion of the House of David as Beth-El or the House of God is there an Assembly of the Elect; sitting at tables around the Dias where sit the 12 Apostles of the Lamb at the Emerald Table of Justice.

They who sit in the Prescence of Kihidr Rumi and Ibn el-Arabi are the Ruling Circle of the Elect; it is they who welcomed me when I came to the Supper of the Great God: who is God in His Mercy; there being none greater.

How the GOP planted the Seeds of Their own Destruction: the Root Causes of our Second Civil War and the Prophetic Regard of Truth

The Present Moment as of the Final Division of “Time, Times, and the Dividing of Time”

There are those who say my calling as what I have termed being the Scribe of the Emerald Table of Justice as being just the evidence they need to dismiss my mission and the purpose of my existence immediately; saying that that those who abrogate to themselves any claim or statement to having any such mission or actual duty to perform for someone they call their “Father Jesus” is the very proof they need to relegate both myself and my claim to actually having a job for some mythical Table as total poppycock and vainglorious boasting and fantasy. Very well: everyone is welcome to state their opinion of my and my work so we can all ascertain what side of the Present Coming Severance of 2022 at the Body Politic and then the Final Divide of 2024 at the Head, so the Whole Earth can see which side that they stand on.

I say “severance” and “divide” as being specifically in regard of the Final Separation of Light and Darkness called the Last Judgement; hereby mentioned in Matthew in several different allusions; but whose full explanation comes at Matthew 13:36, when the disciples of my Father Jesus asked for the Key of the Teaching, saying, “Declare unto us the Parable of the Tares of the Field”.

After he gives them the Key as defining all the terms he uses he then ends with a curiously absolute declaration, which reaches it’s conclusion at verse 13:49; to wit:

“So shall it be at the End of the World: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 

And shall cast them into a Furnace of Fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth….”  

“…….The violence of January 6th had been a long time coming, even before the election.

We saw state houses taken over by armed militia “protesting” mask mandates. Public health officials were threatened at their homes. School board members were plagued with taunts of “we know how to find you” at public meetings. Many of these “protesters” are armed.

The RNC even called January 6th “legitimate political discourse.” The threat of political violence is now an everyday feature of right-wing political activism.

Trump didn’t create this phenomenon. He’s just the first president to openly endorse it and coerce the GOP establishment to fully embrace it. The violent rhetoric of the right-wing media was way ahead of him.

Recall original gangster Rush Limbaugh who said decades ago now,

“I tell people don’t kill all the liberals. Leave enough so we can have two on every campus — living fossils….

Or consider Ann Coulter when asked what was her biggest ethical dilemma said, “There was one time I had a shot at Clinton. I thought ‘Ann, that’s not going to help your career.'”

But what is the nature of this “Delusion” ??? Where is it’s origin in Scripture ??? 

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

II Thessalonians 2:8-12

So let us now go forward; seeing as how Trump as the last incarnation of Lucifer reaches his end…… 

“…..The fantastic lie that has gripped the Republican Party started out with everyone going along with Trump’s fantasy and kind of humoring him. But now it’s taken a deadly turn. Trump has been calling Republican state representatives on the phone and pressuring them to go along with his demands that they ignore the votes that have taken place in swing states and appoint electors that will vote for him.

If they step out of line, they’re branded as traitors, cowards, RINOs. He’s doing this kind of stuff to his own people, to loyal Republicans who have voted the party line since they were in short pants.

When you add in what’s been happening in red states with COVID, it’s jaw-dropping. Governors and Republican-controlled state legislatures are so intimidated that they won’t pass mask mandates and bar closures, not to mention rules against mass gatherings. COVID cases and hospitalizations in red states are off the charts.

They are lining up refrigerated trucks outside hospitals in states like North and South Dakota. Republicans are killing their own people in craven attempts to keep Donald Trump from attacking them on Twitter.

God only knows what’s going to happen in those states when the COVID vaccines become widely available, although we’re getting some idea with reports of people standing up at meetings of county commissioners pledging not only that they won’t wear masks, they’ll also refuse to be vaccinated.

This week it passed the number of Americans killed in World War II, and its victims are just as dead as the bodies buried at Anzio and Normandy. Americans are dying every time Mitch McConnell stands up and blocks a COVID relief bill.

They are dying every time a Republican senator like Ron Johnson presents testimony from an anti-vaxxer as if it were a sane person instead of an outright idiot. They’re dying by the thousands with their mask-less hubris.

They’re dying for Donald Trump, but at least for now, our democracy has not died with them…… “

The 18 states and 126 members of Congress, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Minority Whip Steve Scalise, are seceding from democracy. It amounts to nothing less than an act of sedition by the entire Republican Party, 70 percent of whom believe that Joe Biden’s election was illegitimate, according to a Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday. In contrast, 98 percent of Democrats think Biden’s victory was legitimate, along with 62 percent of independents.

The last time anything like this happened was in 1860, when the election of Abraham Lincoln led almost immediately to declarations of secession by seven states between Dec. 20, 1860 and Feb. 1, 1861. Two months later, on April 12, the bombardment of Fort Sumter began, and the Civil War was underway.

COMMENTARY: Psycho secession: Texas’ lost-cause lawsuit was the first shot in a new Civil War… Even the right-wing Supreme Court blanched at outright sedition by 126 members of Congress. We must not forget….    By LUCIAN K. TRUSCOTT IV

They didn’t bother with writing articles of secession this time. No, Ken Paxton, the disgraced attorney general of the state of Texas, did that for them when he filed a lawsuit directly with the Supreme Court seeking to overturn the presidential election.

On Wednesday, Missouri and 16 other states filed a brief with the court seeking to join the Texas lawsuit, which alleges that the four decisive swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia violated the Constitution by allowing mail-in voting in the November election. On Thursday, a majority of the Republican caucus in the House, 126 members of Congress, signed on to the lawsuit along with the instigator in chief, Donald Trump. Twenty-five states and territories signed a brief opposing the Texas lawsuit. Friday evening, the Supreme Court rejected the suit out of hand.

The 18 states and 126 members of Congress, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Minority Whip Steve Scalise, are seceding from democracy. It amounts to nothing less than an act of sedition by the entire Republican Party, 70 percent of whom believe that Joe Biden’s election was illegitimate, according to a Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday. In contrast, 98 percent of Democrats think Biden’s victory was legitimate, along with 62 percent of independents.

The last time anything like this happened was in 1860, when the election of Abraham Lincoln led almost immediately to declarations of secession by seven states between Dec. 20, 1860 and Feb. 1, 1861. Two months later, on April 12, the bombardment of Fort Sumter began, and the Civil War was underway.

It’s not a shooting war — yet — but Texas didn’t just file a lawsuit this week, it set a match to the Constitution of the United States. It isn’t just that these Republicans don’t recognize Joe Biden as our next president. They don’t want to be part of the democracy that this country was founded on. They don’t respect the votes of their fellow citizens. They don’t want what more than 80 million people wanted when they cast their votes in this election. They want what Donald Trump wants.

Thankfully, it’s not the whole country. The Quinnipiac poll found that 60 percent of registered voters think that Biden’s victory was legitimate. But it wasn’t the whole country in 1860, either. It was only after the election of Lincoln that the Southern states seceded from the Union over the issue of slavery.

This time there isn’t a single issue, there’s a single man: Donald Trump. In this way, what’s happening right now in this country is eerily similar to what happened in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s with Adolf Hitler’s rise to power. Trump has identified and used the same sort of mass hysteria Hitler did — a sense of resentment among his supporters that somehow they have been left behind and misunderstood and humiliated, and that only he, Trump, understands them and is willing to stand up for them and will bring back their rightful way of life.

So far, Trump has only played around with the kind of violence that Hitler made use of to achieve power and then consolidate it. Trump used implied violence in the chants of “Lock her up” that energized supporters at his rallies in 2016 and throughout the campaign of 2020. By staying silent this year when armed protesters occupied the State Capitol in Michigan, Trump implied his support, and his exhortations to “liberate” states that were mandating lockdowns to fight COVID were taken by many as invitations to violence. :

Now armed protesters have gathered outside the home of the Michigan secretary of state, and Georgia election officials report that they are receiving death threats and racist voice mails. The Republican Party of Arizona has retweeted exhortations from those who say, “I’m willing to give up my life for this fight,” suggesting it’s time to “die for something.” The New York Times reported this week that the chair of the Wisconsin Elections Commission has said that “people on Twitter have posted photographs of my house.” Another tweet mentioned her children and threatened “I’ve heard you’ll have quite a crowd of patriots showing up at your door.”

The conservative website The Bulwark reported this week that far-right websites have been posting addresses and other personal information about Republican elected officials in Georgia, superimposing target crosshairs over images of their faces.

Right-wing Republicans are in full cheerleader mode trying to turn Kyle Rittenhouse, who is accused of murdering two people and wounding another at a Kenosha, Wisconsin, protest, into a hero of the Trump cause. A Democratic state representative in Pennsylvania told the New York Times that “we’ve been getting emails all the time, all hours of the day and night,” and that “they’re getting more angry, and a lot of calls are saying we won’t be forgetting.”

This kind of stuff is not a joke. The fantastic lie that has gripped the Republican Party started out with everyone going along with Trump’s fantasy and kind of humoring him. But now it’s taken a deadly turn. Trump has been calling Republican state representatives on the phone and pressuring them to go along with his demands that they ignore the votes that have taken place in swing states and appoint electors that will vote for him.

If they step out of line, they’re branded as traitors, cowards, RINOs. He’s doing this kind of stuff to his own people, to loyal Republicans who have voted the party line since they were in short pants.

God only knows what’s going to happen in those states when the COVID vaccines become widely available, although we’re getting some idea with reports of people standing up at meetings of county commissioners pledging not only that they won’t wear masks, they’ll also refuse to be vaccinated.

The Mason-Dixon line is psychological this time. These people have lost their minds. They have seceded from sanity and reason. This Civil War isn’t being fought with rifles and pistols. It’s a war fought with lies and delusions. This week it passed the number of Americans killed in World War II, and its victims are just as dead as the bodies buried at Anzio and Normandy.

A Further Witness 4/18/2015

……………………………………..Elijah rises on 4-18-2015………………………….

“There is coming a messenger, there is coming a messenger who will bring equity and justice to the poor, and to the weak, and who will stand for ’the least of these.’”

….I am not a theologian, I am not an expert on the Bible, nor am I a Catholic. I am just a United States senator from the small state of Vermont. But I agree with Pope Francis, who will soon be coming to visit us in the United States.

I agree with Pope Francis when he says, and I quote,

“The current financial crisis originated in a profound human crisis, the denial of the primacy of the human person,” and this is what he writes: “We have created new idols. The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose,” end of quote.

And the pope also writes, quote,

“There is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce in its turn an economic reform to benefit everyone. Money has to serve, not to rule,” end of quote.

Now those are pretty profound words, which I hope we will all think about. In the pope’s view, and I agree with him, we are living in a nation and in a world, and the Bible speaks to this issue, in a nation and in a world which worships not love of brothers and sisters, not love of the poor and the sick, but worships the acquisition of money and great wealth. I do not believe that is the country we should be living in.

Money and wealth should serve the people. The people should not have to serve money and wealth. (APPLAUSE)…..”

Jim the Evangelist bears Witness from that Night

Hi my name is Jim. I am the guy who recently posted onto Reddit under the Sanders4President Subreddit that I’m a Liberty University Alumni, and that I support Bernie, and think that he’s a good spokesman for justice.

I thought I would take a second to, sort of, unpack that, because I could tell there’s a lot of people, both Evangelical conservative folk and more liberal Bernie-supporting folk, who are very confused that I could occupy both worlds. So, I thought, I’ll take a few seconds and explain myself, and maybe that will be helpful for the conversation….”

Later on he says about Bernie Sanders this, to wit:

“….That’s the wild-haired Jew that I saw up on that stage. I saw, and felt, the same voice coming from the Bible when I read about John the Baptist, who cried out in the desert to the Pharisees, warning them that Jesus was coming, the messenger of God. And that he was coming to restore justice, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and to value ’the least of these’ when the Pharisees had failed.

And as I heard Bernie talking, and as I listened to his cries for justice, I remembered, suddenly, what Jesus had actually said in the Book of Luke, when he unravels the scroll in the synagogue, and he quotes the Book of Isaiah, which says that the Son of God was coming. And then he says, “This has been fulfilled in your presence here today.” He quotes the book of Isaiah which says that the Son of God is coming to bring justice, and Jesus says “it is now come to pass in your presence.” And he says, “I have come to bring Gospel to the poor.”

Gospel—is that word we Evangelical Christians have based everything on. Gospel means ‘good news.’ And Jesus said “I have come to bring good news to the poor.” To restore sight to the blind, to stand with the suffering, to set the captives free, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

Whoa.

As I heard Bernie Sanders crying out to the religious leaders at Liberty University, in his hoarse voice, with his wild hair, this Jew, and he proclaimed justice over us. He called us to account for being complicit with those who are wealthy and those who are powerful and for abandoning the poor, ‘the least of these’ who Jesus said he had come to bring good news to.

And in that moment, something occurred to me, as I saw Bernie Sanders up there, as I watched him I realized: Bernie Sanders, for President, is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders for President is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders is Gospel for the poor……”

Jim the Evangelist bears Witness from that Night

Hi my name is Jim. I am the guy who recently posted onto Reddit under the Sanders4President Subreddit that I’m a Liberty University Alumni, and that I support Bernie, and think that he’s a good spokesman for justice.

I thought I would take a second to, sort of, unpack that, because I could tell there’s a lot of people, both Evangelical conservative folk and more liberal Bernie-supporting folk, who are very confused that I could occupy both worlds. So, I thought, I’ll take a few seconds and explain myself, and maybe that will be helpful for the conversation.

So a little bit about me. I am not a current student at Liberty. If I was, I actually wouldn’t have been able to post onto that Reddit board and say that I’m supporting Bernie. There is an Honor Code at Liberty University, and while it’s not always enforced, if you support a candidate who is pro-choice or pro-gay marriage, you can be punished by the University, up to and including expulsion from the school. So as a graduate of Liberty University, I’m in a good position to represent folks that might go there and people from the Evangelical tradition, but not be within the world that they can, you know, punish me for my opinion.

So I got my Bachelors degree in Religion from Liberty University, and I also got my Masters degree from Liberty University in Marriage and Family Therapy. In 2004 I worked for the George W. Bush campaign. I spent about 8 years as a Conservative pastor. And also as a schoolteacher at a conservative Christian academy. And today I serve my community as a therapist and also a pastoral counselor, somebody that folks from churches might go see to get counseling whenever they want to see somebody who’s both a clinical counselor but also a pastor.

So I serve all those roles. I think I’m pretty much a card-carrying Evangelical Christian. I still subscribe to a conservative evangelical theology. And what that means, a lot of people get confused when they hear the word ‘conservative,’ they assume you mean politically. ‘Conservative theology’ means that I believe the Bible is trustworthy, I think that God inspired it, Jesus was absolutely real, and really died on the cross, and really did resurrect three days later; and I am an Evangelical Christian in that way.

So, how did I come to find myself supporting Bernie Sanders? How did that evolution take place? How could it be that in 2004 I was working for the George W. Bush campaign, and today in 2015, as a double Liberty University graduate, under Jerry Falwell—when I went to school, Jerry Falwell was the Chancellor—how is it that I could be now supporting Bernie Sanders, who’s a very progressive, very liberal guy; he describes himself as a ‘democratic socialist.’ How do I find common ground on those two things?

Well a lot of people I think falsely believe that in order to do that you have to give up one of your sides. Either you have to not really be a progressive, and you’re just an Evangelical who just likes Bernie, or you have to not really be an Evangelical, and just secretly be a Progressive who’s faking it and pretending to be an Evangelical, but wouldn’t actually pass the litmus test of being an Evangelical.

I pass both tests, I am very much 100% legitimate in both camps, and I want to explain why that’s not a mythological thing, that’s not a disconnect. Some people call that a contradiction, or hypocrisy, it is absolutely not. I believe that my views are 100% consistent. And so I think that the shock value for that comes in beginning to appreciate that the Bible and Jesus, in my opinion and in my very moderate reading of the Bible and the words of Christ, leads us to a Progressive worldview.

And that is shocking to a lot of people, especially folks back home in the Evangelical community, they hear that and go, “What are you talking about? That’s heresy—”… it’s like, hold on. Hear me out. There is a Biblical argument for voting for Bernie Sanders, believe it or not, and I’m gonna walk you through it really quick on some key issues.

So that first issue that I’d kind of point your attention to is kind of what Bernie brought up during his speech at Liberty. Basically, the wealth inequality problem—and see a lot of us, on the Evangelical side think that what Jesus really cares about is gay marriage and abortion. And of course, the great irony is if you read the red letters of Jesus, there are no statements on abortion. There are no statements on gay marriage. Now, that’s not to say the Bible doesn’t speak about these things, but it certainly is to say that Jesus, founder and master of our faith, did not see fit to make these high-priority topics. It’s not to say he doesn’t care. But it is to say that we need to be careful not to ‘major on minors.’ We should be focused on the things Jesus did talk about.

So what did Jesus talk about?

So here’s the interesting thing. When I was watching Bernie Sanders talk at Liberty University, I was just really shocked, and something kind of magical happened for me, because as I watched that guy stand up on that stage, here’s what I saw. I saw a wild-haired Jew crying out in a hoarse voice, in a very forceful and forth-speaking way, he was convicting the Christian leaders and religious leaders in that University and calling us out for being complicit in the abandonment of those who suffer:

“The least of these.”

And siding with the powerful and the rich and the masters of this world.

And he was convicting us, and calling us out. And we scorned him, and we stared him down, and with sour faces we thought, “Who is this whacko? And why do all these people seem to follow him, seem to like him? This wild-haired Jew, crying out from the wilderness of the political Left, in his hoarse voice?”

And if you’re an Evangelical listening to me today, you already know where I’m going with this. When I heard Bernie speaking in that way, when I saw that guy on stage at Liberty University, I saw John the Baptist.

I saw the wild-haired, roughly-clothed John the Baptist, eating honey and wearing camel’s hair, and crying out to the religious leaders, the Pharisees of his day, calling them corrupt and complicit with those who have all the power and all the money and all the wealth, and for abandoning the people that God loves, that God cares about. For the Pharisees, who were siding with those who already have power and wealthand saying that they will be the last in the Kingdom of God, and that the weak, and the meek, and the simple, and those who need help—they are first in the Kingdom of God.

And I saw that guy, that John the Baptist figure, who is standing up and saying

“There is coming a messenger, there is coming a messenger who will bring equity and justice to the poor, and to the weak, and who will stand for ’the least of these.’”

That’s the wild-haired Jew that I saw up on that stage. I saw, and felt, the same voice coming from the Bible when I read about John the Baptist, who cried out in the desert to the Pharisees, warning them that Jesus was coming, the messenger of God. And that he was coming to restore justice, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and to value ’the least of these’ when the Pharisees had failed.

And as I heard Bernie talking, and as I listened to his cries for justice, I remembered, suddenly, what Jesus had actually said in the Book of Luke, when he unravels the scroll in the synagogue, and he quotes the Book of Isaiah, which says that the Son of God was coming. And then he says, “This has been fulfilled in your presence here today.” He quotes the book of Isaiah which says that the Son of God is coming to bring justice, and Jesus says “it is now come to pass in your presence.” And he says, “I have come to bring Gospel to the poor.”

Gospel—is that word we Evangelical Christians have based everything on. Gospel means ‘good news.’ And Jesus said “I have come to bring good news to the poor.” To restore sight to the blind, to stand with the suffering, to set the captives free, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

Whoa.

As I heard Bernie Sanders crying out to the religious leaders at Liberty University, in his hoarse voice, with his wild hair, this Jew, and he proclaimed justice over us. He called us to account for being complicit with those who are wealthy and those who are powerful and for abandoning the poor, ‘the least of these’ who Jesus said he had come to bring good news to.

And in that moment, something occurred to me, as I saw Bernie Sanders up there, as I watched him I realized: Bernie Sanders, for President, is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders for President is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders is Gospel for the poor.

And Jesus said, “I have come to bring Gospel—good news—to the poor.”

And lightning hit my heart in that moment. And I realized that we are Evangelical Christians, that we believe the Bible. We believe in Jesus. We absolutely shun those who attempt to find nuance and twisted and tortured interpretation of scripture that they would use to master all other broader interpretations, to find some kind of big message that they want to flout. We absolutely scorn such things.

And yet somehow, we commit to the mental gymnastics necessary that allows us to abandon ‘the least of these,’ to abandon the poor, to abandon the immigrants, to abandon those who are in prison.

I listened to Bernie Sanders, as he said he wanted to welcome the immigrants and give them dignity. As he said he wanted to care for the sick children, and mothers, and fathers, who do not have health care. As he said he wanted to decrease the amount of human beings who are corralled like cattle in the prisons. As he said he wanted to do justice for those who have nothing and live homeless.

And I remembered the words of Jesus, who warned his disciples that there will be judgment, and on that day he will look to his friends, and he will say ‘Blessed are you, for you cared for me, for I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick, and you cared for me; I was hungry, and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink; I was in prison, and you came to visit me; I was homeless, and you gave me shelter.” And the disciples said, “Jesus, when did we do any of those things for you?”

And he said, “If you have done it for ‘the least of these,’ you have done it for me.”

And those words echoed in my heart. As I listened to that crazy, hoarse-voiced, wild-haired Jew, standing in front of the religious leaders of the Evangelical movement, calling us to account, as a Jew once did before. Telling us that he intends to care for ‘the least of these.’ To clothe the naked, to shelter the homeless, to care for the sick, to set the prisoners free.

Yes. I am an Evangelical Christian. I believe in the Bible. I follow Jesus. When I look at Bernie Sanders, and I hear the things that he’s saying, it’s like he’s ripping them out of the pages of scripture. I would have to try to avoid the meaning of those words. I would have to bury my head in the sand to continue to support conservative policies. I am religiously conservative but I am not politically so. And I think here is the heart and soul of it:

When we chose to follow Jesus, we decided that the Kingdom of God, and the men and women and children of this world, were more important than us. And that accidentally made us all liberals. The day we decided to follow Christ, and the day we decided that we value other human beings more than ourselves, we accidentally became liberals.

And so there is no contradiction between being a Bible-believing Christian and a Bernie Sanders supporter.

I follow the teachings of Christ: to care for ‘the least of these.’

And I believe that just as John the Baptist once cried out in the desert for justice, and called the religious establishment to account, and hearkened unto the day that Jesus would walk among us, and declare equity and justice and good news for the poor; and just as that day came, that Jesus stood in front of the multitudes at the religious institution and said “I have come to bring gospel to the poor,” I believe that Bernie Sanders now stands in front of us, wild-haired and hoarse-voiced, and he now declares justice for the poor. He declares good news for ‘the least of these.’

He has come to bring gospel. And I wouldn’t be much of a Christian if I didn’t stand on the side of gospel for the poor. Because the last time I checked, that’s where my master Jesus stood, and I’ll stand with him. And for now, that means I stand with Bernie Sanders.

The Settling of the Accounts

The Judgement as the Day of Reckoning

The Day of Reckoning is one where the accounts are settled, in other words where the punishments are awarded according to the Standard of Justice; where my Father on the Great White Throne sits in the position of God in His Righteousness, being Just because He is neutral in the Third Position as to the Impartial Principle of Judgment that operates in His own Mind.

My Father Jesus makes sure everyone gets a fair trial, and the 12 Apostles on the 12 thrones of the Emerald Table of Justice; the Jury of the 12 Apostles of the Lamb hear and then weigh the evidence; before they pass Judgment. Then I am given the Verdict, as the Sentence that I thus write down; also being completely neutral.

Let us take a quick look at the Rich Man, Lazarus: and the figure of Abraham.
Luke 16:19-31
There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day.
At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores,
and longing to eat what fell from the Rich Man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The Rich Man also died and was buried.
In Hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side.
( 4.
So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire’.
But Abraham replied, ‘Son remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony.
And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone else cross over from there to us.’
He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father’s house,
for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.
Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’
‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’
He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead’ (NIV)

The story of the Rich Man and Lazarus is one of the best known in the Bible because it is unique in several ways.

Firstly, it is unique because, although its style resembles a parable, and also it comes immediately after a series of four other parables (parables of the lost sheep, lost coin, prodigal son, dishonest manager), it certainly is not a usual parable. The parables of Jesus normally concern nature, everyday life, customs and society, not startling visions of the underworld, complete with fire and chasms.

Secondly, this parable, if we can properly call it a parable, is the only one in which real people – Abraham, Lazarus – are named.

Thirdly, it is unique because the teachings in this story clearly contradict the rest of the Bible’s teaching about what happens after death. For example no other support can be found anywhere in the Bible for the idea that ‘souls’ live on after death, or that the ‘souls’ of good and wicked go to different places. Or that Abraham is waiting to welcome the dead. This may surprise some readers, but popular ideas about souls going to heaven or hell, and so on, are not taught in the Bible. In fact they are repeatedly denied in both Old and New Testaments. Elsewhere in the Bible “the dead know nothing”. (More on this subject in a moment).

Finally, Jesus uses various phrases (such as “the Bosom of Abraham”) and images (such as the chasm separating the underworld in two) which are only found outside the Bible. In fact these terms are only found in 1st Century Jewish mythology.

Who was the Rich Man?

Reading through the story we can find the following clues to the identity of the Rich Man:

…..he was rich (vs.19)
……..dressed in purple and fine linen (vs.19)
…………lived in luxury every day (vs.19)
……………..in his lifetime he received good things (vs.25)

( 5. Furthermore

…he had five brothers (vs.28)
……they lived in his father’s house (vs.27)
…………they had Moses and the Prophets (vs.25)
…….but they did not listen to them (vs.29)

Finally: they would not be convinced even if someone were to rise from the dead (vs.31)

In Exodus 28 we find the instructions given to Aaron for making the high priest’s garments; “blue, purple, and scarlet yarn and fine linen” (note Exodus 28:5-8,15,31,39).

The Pharisees could not fail to understand that the man dressed in purple and fine linen was the Jewish high priest.

The Name of the Rich Man

The high priest when Jesus spoke this parable was Caiaphas. We know from the Jewish historian Josephus, who wrote a detailed account of the period in Antiquities of the Jews, that Caiaphas met all 4 of the first qualifications of the Rich Man of Luke 16:

In Luke 3:2 and Acts 4:6 we meet the other high priest who served with Caiaphas, Annas, who was “father-in-law to Caiaphas” (John 18:13). Josephus also records that Caiaphas served as high priest 18-35 AD at the time of Jesus’ ministry.

Annas had been removed from his office by the Romans for openly resisting them, but behind the scenes he retained his authority and position. This is why in John 18:13-24 Jesus is first tried by Annas, and only afterwards sent to Caiaphas (v.28), but then Caiaphas, not Annas, sends Jesus to Pilate (v.29).

The Five Brothers

In case anyone listening did not understand who He meant, Christ was even more specific: The “five brothers” Christ mentions are the five other high priests, who were in fact his five brothers-in-law, the five sons of Annas.

The historian Josephus records:

“Now the report goes, that this elder Annas proved a most fortunate man; for he had five sons, who had all performed the office of a high priest to God, and he had himself enjoyed that dignity a long time formerly, which had never happened to any other of our high priests. . .” (Antiquities, Book XX, chapter 9, section i, p.423)
The years they served are as follows:
Eleazar 16-17AD
Jonathan 36-37AD
Theophilus 37-41AD
Matthias 41-43AD
Annas the Younger 62AD

( 6.
As mentioned above, the years 18-35AD between Eleazar and Jonathan were occupied by Caiaphas. Between 43-62AD the high priests were taken from other families than of Annas. Finally in 70AD the temple was destroyed and the high priesthood along with it.

This confirms the list of coincidences between the Rich Man and Caiaphas:
5. ….he had five brothers (v.28)
6. …..they lived in his father’s house (v.27)
7. …..they had Moses and the Prophets (v.25)
8. …..but they did not listen to them (v.29)

The final coincidence is confirmed when after the resurrection of Lazarus of Bethany, we read that “the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well, for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and putting their faith in him” (John 12:10)

9. ……they would not be convinced even if someone were to rise from the dead (v.31)

                       At the Rich Man’s Gate

“At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores, and longing to eat from the Rich Man’s table.

Even the dogs came and licked his sores.” (vs. 20-21)

As we noted in considering the real Lazarus, when a Jew contracted a disease they became ‘unclean’. They were at most allowed only into the outer court of the temple.

This meant the unclean were no longer allowed to eat from the sacrifices offered in the inner court. In this way Lazarus of Bethany was barred from eating at the table of Caiaphas in Jerusalem.

There is similar language in Matthew 15 when the Canaanite woman (who was a ‘Gentile dog’ as far as the Pharisees were concerned) said to Jesus

“Even the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their master’s table” (Matthew 15:27).

It may be that before he died Lazarus the Leper literally did beg outside the temple. But the meaning here is deeper than begging for food. Jesus is saying that the weak, the unclean, and the poor, were all denied spiritual food by the ruling caste of high priests.

The Bosom of Abraham

“The time came when the beggar died, and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side” (v.22 NIV).

( 7.
Now this is where the story starts to become difficult. Nowhere else in the Bible does it say that when men die they go to Abraham’s side. In older Bibles it reads “bosom of Abraham”, meaning the lap of Abraham.

Today there are a hundred and one different theories about death. Many people seriously believe when they die they will go up to the gates of Heaven, to be met by the Apostle Peter. Others believe other things. But the idea that the dead go to sit ‘in the lap’ of Abraham is something that nobody today believes.

But people did believe it in Jesus’ day.

Mentions of “the bosom of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” have been found in burial papyri (cf. papyrus Preisigke Sb 2034:11). In early Rabbinical legends “the Bosom of Abraham” was where the righteous went. (cf. Kiddushin 72b, Ekah 1:85). It is not in the Bible of course, but it was popularly believed.

While the NIV has “to Abraham’s side”, the literal AV rendering “to the bosom of Abraham” is better as the ‘Bosom of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob’, was a specific concept in contemporary popular belief.

Another source showing what Jews of Jesus’ day believed is a book called 4 Maccabees, which was probably written by Jews in Egypt about a generation after Christ. In this work of fiction Abraham, Isaac and Jacob receive and welcome Jewish martyrs into the world of the dead:

“After our death in this fashion Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will receive us and all our forefathers will praise us” (4 Maccabees 13:17).
Again, this is not Bible teaching, only popular superstition.

                        The Rich Man in Hell

The story becomes even more difficult when we read the next verse:

“The Rich Man also died and was buried. In Hell where he was in torment he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus in his bosom. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire’.” (vs. 23-24)

Even with the most fertile imagination it is difficult to believe that from Hell one can see people in Heaven and talk to them. But the story gets stranger still:

“But Abraham replied.

‘Son remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony.

And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone else cross over from there to us”. (vs. 25-26)

Nothing else in the Bible prepares us for this description of Hell. Again the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus turns out to be unique. …..

Now let us look at what my Father Jesus said,

Luke 16:19-31 King James Version (KJV)
19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said,
“…Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame….”
25 But Abraham said,
“…Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence….”
27 Then he said,
“…I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them,
29. lest they also come into this place of torment….”

29 Abraham saith unto him,
“…They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them….”

30 And he said,
“….Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent….”

31 And he said unto him,

“… If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead….”

Now the one risen from the dead prefigures my Father himself, who will soon die and rise; but with Lazarus we have a clear sign on how those in power will view the entire divine miracle: as being of the Devil.
In other words they will not be convinced though one “rose from the dead..”

So what does all this REALLY mean???

Lazarus, Mary and Martha actually are real historical people representing Jonathan, son of Saul, David’s best friend; Michal, the daughter of Saul, and David’s royal wife, and Michal’s sister. This was the reality, in one direct sense.

In truth, John the Baptist, had he said he was Elijah, would actually have been killed by Herod the Great, and then my Father Jesus was then going to raise him from the dead: for the REAL son of Perdition was Herod the Great who killed 22,000 children under 5 years of age after hearing from the Magi that the Messiah had been born.

Having raised John as Elijah would have united all of Israel on the spot: that was what was SUPPOSED to have happened.

How do I know this?? Because John the Baptist was named for Jonathan, and had he said and then been Elijah he and Jesus WOULD have been David and Jonathan back from the dead…. Best friends then for all Eternity.

But John the Baptist rejected my Father, and John the Beloved was Jonathan indeed, instead.

( 10.
But Lazarus and Mary of Bethany were in the position of Jonathan and Michal due to the fact that Mary of Bethany was the one my Father fell in love with, thus her brother Lazarus REPRESENTED Jonathan, and raising him was how my Father / David was to take Mary / Michal, back from the Serpent or Devil: for Mary of Bethany was a whore, a fallen woman who my Father restored and even saved her life,

                      “…for she loved much…” he said….

Everyone thinks it was Mary Magdalene Jesus loved, but my servant John told me she was an elderly spinster, who was a sexual hysteric, and who hated men and was a stone cold frigid virgin; and from whom he cast out 7 devil’s with his finger, which meant he opened her 7 senses by digital manipulation.

Herod the Great was the real Son of
Perdition: as of the Devil

But Herod had rebuilt the Temple, and fancied himself Solomon as Messiah having returned from the dead, as the Jews told Jesus when he asked them “..who the Messiah was..???” said this:

“…They answered him;
“…The SON OF DAVID..”. in other words: Solomon.

But my Father used the figure of the High Priest Caiaphas, and the rest, to characterize how they had rejected his incredible miracle, even planning to kill Lazarus, and also how this foreshadowed how they would reject him as well when he arose,…..

When the Process and the Structure become More Important than the Original Intent

Bill Kristol famously said that in the natural course of events, “things begin as a movement meant to accomplish something, become a business made to make money from it and becomes a Con, meant to perpetuate making money.” In his case he was speaking about the Republican Party.
But sadly, I can make a good case that in fact that is the truth about American government and democracy.
The two party system is an anachronism, based in the notion of there only being two points of view. That 2 private clubs best represent the American people.
All of which, is simply absurd but we not only allow it, some defend it as democracy, which it is not.
It is where the things needed by the American people go to die. And where the special interests get what they want with direct access due to, pay for play.
This is in fact the very reason we fought the Revolutionary War, government without representation for the vast majority of the American people. Just what we have now.
.
While the personal imperfections of the Founding Fathers is evident, their intention to create a government that does it’s best for its people is self-evident. The British monarchy held all of the cards when it came to doing the things needed for the American people. Now it’s the rich Cons (Conservative Authoritarians).
Different place, different time, same old shit. In a money driven system, money is the only conversation.
And that is exactly where we now stand.
The simple truth is that our democracy has become a scam. It no longer fulfils the object of the exercise, to provide the people being ruled a voice in that rule. Or as the Founders said, a consensus of the people. That is no longer the case.
.
That the very things that were self-evident to the Founders cannot be found with a microscope in today’s version of their great experiment.
That life liberty and the pursuit of happiness has been replaced by the ownership of things, a right of willful ignorance and screw you! As we begin the 21st century, we forget the things the 18th century was trying to fix.
That the divine right of kings authoritarianism be replaced with a meritocracy based ruled through a consensus, of the people. Now it is just an economic based authoritarianism based in the epic size of egos and money.
This should have been a time of fighting new battles, building new things as an American society but sadly the same forces that drove the American Revolution and Civil War are still very much in play.
We in fact live in the time of the “Great Retraction.” The retraction of the true promise of democracy to be replaced by flat screen televisions, cell phones, myth and lies and the same authoritarianism we fought against again and again.
Our version of the great experiment has simply become an institutionalized scam. It no longer functions as a voice of the people, in fact every party elected official reaches out to the rich to get elected and in turn sell bits of their souls and our futures.
.
You can see the direct result in the joke of a stimulus bill just passed. Months late and Cons screaming that it is bankrupt the nation when in truth it is about stock and bond positions for their wealthy patrons.
That the Republicans don’t want to look like the assholes they are, before the coming Georgia special election, so they allow a trickle down.
The Democrats at times, do their best but are ready to stick a knife in any real progressive candidate. Sadly, we live in a time when the process has become a scam, owned by authoritarians.
That the consensus that powers the nation consists of dollars and meet in board rooms and in the shadows, and is not that of the American people.
The Foundations! Truth, logic, ethics and honesty of intent.

The Saying of my Father ISA whose eyes are a Flaming Fire

No photo description available.
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience I also will keep thee from the hour of Temptation,
which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the Earth..”
Revelation 3:10
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect….”
Matthew 24:24
I chose these particular quotes along with the picture of the White Rabbit as the hour of Donald Trump’s expulsion from the White House comes closer and closer; because they both illustrate the same thing of what happens when people sell themselves to Mammon because God doesn’t give you anything that you want immediately unless it aligns with his Will, and since most people are not concerned about the will of God whatsoever but what they can get immediately and instantly to gratify their base desires, the Hour of Temptation has signaled the fall of what we call the 1% to where these Hatefilled Birds of Prey all end up in something called the Golden Cage of Babylon, before Somebody at the end picks up the Cage and drops it into the Lake of Fire: which is obviously what my Father Jesus is going to do as His Return on the Great White Throne as the Living God, ie ” in the Flesh”, sitting on the Throne of His Glory in the position of “God in His Righteousness”.

But we must see that there is much more to the current state of events than what is apparent on the surface… and I intend to show those who care that the fulfillment of the Scripture at the End is Predestined beyond any doubt; but I will do what few would even try to attempt; I shall offer Proof….

THE SIGN OF APOSTASY at the LAST DAYS and the Arrival of the LAST DAY itself

THESE 12 CHURCH LEADERS PROPHESIED THAT TRUMP WOULD WIN THE 2020 ELECTION

“When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD and the message does not come to pass or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.” – Deut. 18:22

No matter if you like it or not, Joe Biden won the US presidential election. This is very awkward for all the pastors and televangelists who claimed that God had told them that Trump would be reelected. Some of them even claimed that he would do so “by a landslide”.

This video includes false Trump prophecies by Pat Robertson, Paula White-Cain, Kris Vallotton, Mark Taylor, Kat Kerr, Marcus Rogers, Kevin Zadai, Greg Locke, Taribo West, Denise Goulet, Curt Landry, Jeremiah Johnson.

As of this writing, only Vallotton has apologized for his mistake – and even he took his apology down after many of his followers protested.

Of course, this raises the question: if these church leaders were wrong about this, what else are they wrong about? Most of them were not only predicting Trump’s victory, but hoping for it. Some of them described his presidency as “goodness” even as it included a complete disregard for refugees and people affected by climate change.

It’s time to reevaluate what kind of leaders we want to be influenced by.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that these church leaders are all false prophets. Like Bible scholar Craig Keener, I think one can do prophetic mistakes without being influenced by demons.

Still, such mistakes should be taken very seriously. As Beth Moore recently pointed out, Christian Trumpism has turned out to be extremely seductive and dangerous, doing massive harm to the body of Christ.

This was evident at the recent Jericho March in Washington D.C., where evangelicals were told to worship the virgin Mary in order for her to send angels in support of Trump, and where conspiracy theorist Alex Jones shouted that the Trump movement is “the great revival before the Antichrist”.

I believe in prophecy, and I believe in Christians praying for political leaders. But when prophecy is used as a tool to promote partisan goals and demonize people of another opinion, that can only be described as spiritual abuse.

17 Then the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air,
and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne,

saying,

“IT is Done!”

 

SO…….What was “done” ???

Well; first of all, the Covid -19 Plague is an Airborne Virus…..

As the quicker among us may have noticed…the Final Plague of Revelation is poured out “Into the Air“.

 

 

18 And there were voices and thunderings and lightnings;
and there was a great earthquake,
such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred
since men were on the earth.

19 Now the great city was divided into three parts,
and the cities of the nations fell.
And great Babylon was remembered before God,
to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

21 And great hail from heaven fell upon men,
each hailstone about the weight of a talent.

And Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail,
since that plague was exceedingly great.

This is getting out of hand, and while Trump is busy screaming at governors and talking about calling the real military in to crush protests, we now hear from the Kremlin, not from the White House, but from the Kremlin, that Trump found time in his oh so busy schedule to talk to Putin. Every single time the two of them have talked, news of it has been put out by the Kremlin, as if they want to taunt him that there’s nothing he can do.

This is utterly terrifying.

Trump is getting advice on putting down protests from the man who enjoys crushing people, taking away freedoms, hauling in as much cash for himself as possible, and killing journalists – often with polonium.

“We didn’t “hear” from the Kremlin that Putin gave Trump advice,

but what the fck else do they have to talk about right now?”

This is almost too terrifying to contemplate, so inconceivable with any other president as to be a joke, an Onion headline.

Only this is real and perhaps we haven’t yet appreciated just how dangerous Trump is ready to be. He is ready to declare martial law by calling out the military and taking advice on how to do it from Putin.

Perhaps this explains Trump’s unhinged rant with the mayors and governors. Perhaps Putin, seeing an opening to rip this country apart for two generations, has put the pressure on Trump.

“Call out the military or I disclose everything.” Perhaps not. But this is insanity.

NEW: Defense Sec. Esper asserts to NBC News that he had no advance notice before Pres. Trump led him and other officials to St. John’s Episcopal Church for a photo-op:

I thought I was going to do two things: to see some damage and to talk to the troops.”

President Donald Trump is being widely condemned for his actions on Monday, where a group of peaceful protesters outside the White House were tear-gassed in order for him and his entourage to walk across the street for a photo-op.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper is now claiming ignorance. He says, according to NBC News, that he had absolutely no notice of what was going on and thought he was going to observe a vandalized bathroom.

“I thought I was going to do two things: to see some damage (of the bathroom) and to talk to the troops,” Esper said.

“I didn’t know where I was going,” he said further. “I wanted to see how much damage actually happened.”

It sounds like the president told him to follow him without actually telling him what was going on. What ensued was Esper and other senior administration officials standing by Trump’s side while he held up a bible in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church.

HEAD OF JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF SIGNS ON TO PUTIN’S PUTSCH

An official claims he wasn’t made aware that officers would be tear-gassing people to enable them to make the casually stroll.

“They were not aware that Park Police and law enforcement made the decision to clear the square,” said the official.

Sources told NBC that the real reason Trump made the walk was because he “wanted the visual.” Trump was apparently upset that coverage over the weekend talked about him hiding inside a bunker while Joe Biden was seen chatting with protesters outside in the open.

Army General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was also there in full combat dress.

Mike Mullen, who held the same job as Milley in Obama’s administration, was disgusted and came out saying he could “no longer be silent” after witnessing National Guards troops being used against American civilians in such a way.

Several members of Congress are calling for Milley’s resignation.

This is getting out of hand, and while Trump is busy screaming at governors and talking about calling the real military in to crush protests, we now hear from the Kremlin, not from the White House, but from the Kremlin, that Trump found time in his oh so busy schedule to talk to Putin. Every single time the two of them have talked, news of it has been put out by the Kremlin, as if they want to taunt him that there’s nothing he can do.

This is utterly terrifying.

Trump is getting advice on putting down protests from the man who enjoys crushing people, taking away freedoms, hauling in as much cash for himself as possible, and killing journalists – often with polonium.

“We didn’t “hear” from the Kremlin that Putin gave Trump advice,

but what the fck else do they have to talk about right now?”

This is almost too terrifying to contemplate, so inconceivable with any other president as to be a joke, an Onion headline.

Only this is real and perhaps we haven’t yet appreciated just how dangerous Trump is ready to be. He is ready to declare martial law by calling out the military and taking advice on how to do it from Putin.

Perhaps this explains Trump’s unhinged rant with the mayors and governors. Perhaps Putin, seeing an opening to rip this country apart for two generations, has put the pressure on Trump.

“Call out the military or I disclose everything.” Perhaps not. But this is insanity.

That explains why Trump is demanding police step up its brutality,

after speaking to his Russian handler.

“Handler” isn’t even possible hyperbole anymore. We have seen how “weak” Trump acts around Putin.

Interesting that that’s his priority this morning-

speak to a fellow dictator for some mentoring.

 

This. This. This. This. Trump found time.

He is undergoing a crisis. He didn’t talk to Merkel or Trudeau (both seeing protests in their countries), he called Putin.

“I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING…..”

NEW: Defense Sec. Esper asserts to NBC News that he had no advance notice before Pres. Trump led him and other officials to St. John’s Episcopal Church for a photo-op:

I thought I was going to do two things: to see some damage and to talk to the troops.”

President Donald Trump is being widely condemned for his actions on Monday, where a group of peaceful protesters outside the White House were tear-gassed in order for him and his entourage to walk across the street for a photo-op.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper is now claiming ignorance. He says, according to NBC News, that he had absolutely no notice of what was going on and thought he was going to observe a vandalized bathroom.

“I thought I was going to do two things: to see some damage (of the bathroom) and to talk to the troops,” Esper said.

“I didn’t know where I was going,” he said further. “I wanted to see how much damage actually happened.”

It sounds like the president told him to follow him without actually telling him what was going on. What ensued was Esper and other senior administration officials standing by Trump’s side while he held up a bible in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church.

HEAD OF JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF SIGNS ON TO PUTIN’S PUTSCH

LIES AND MORE LIES FROM THE MILITARY…..

An official claims he wasn’t made aware that officers would be tear-gassing people to enable them to make the casually stroll.

“They were not aware that Park Police and law enforcement made the decision to clear the square,” said the official.

Sources told NBC that the real reason Trump made the walk was because he “wanted the visual.” Trump was apparently upset that coverage over the weekend talked about him hiding inside a bunker while Joe Biden was seen chatting with protesters outside in the open.

Army General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was also there in full combat dress.

Mike Mullen, who held the same job as Milley in Obama’s administration, was disgusted and came out saying he could “no longer be silent” after witnessing National Guards troops being used against American civilians in such a way.

Several members of Congress are calling for Milley’s resignation.

“It is Finished”…The 7th Plague of Revelation is the Last and Final Vial of the Wrath of God and the Lamb

The Final Plague: the 7th Angel in White and the 7th Vial

Enter in the Way of the Just

at the Resurrection of the Just

Revelation 16:17-21

17 Then the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air,
and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne,

saying,

“IT is Done!”

18 And there were voices and thunderings and lightnings;
and there was a great earthquake,
such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred
since men were on the earth.

19 Now the great city was divided into three parts,
and the cities of the nations fell.
And great Babylon was remembered before God,
to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

21 And great hail from heaven fell upon men,
each hailstone about the weight of a talent.

Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail,
since that plague was exceedingly great.

The Sigil of the True White Brother
                                                .…………………………….The Glyph of Seth…………………………………...

   

                The Ancient Controversy of Mohammed and Iblis, and the End that begins at Surah 27:82 of the Qur’an
 
Thus the angels who followed Iblis at the Fall are the origin of angelic racism: of that where the angels thought man should serve them permanently; and not have angels serve man.
 
This is what is hidden in the Qur’an; the ancient controversy between the angels and man: and then Islam and Christ.
The host one thus hears in the Qur’an is the voice of the host of the high ones “on high”; for in killing Jesus these rebel angels had the final justification for not worshiping Adam at the beginning that they claimed man was inferior.

 This was their reasoning; for had not God sent His Son and seen that men killed him like a sacrificial scapegoat for their own sins due to John the Baptist’s rejection of him???.

Thus they claimed in sight of the other obedient angels that men were inherently inferior to angels, and thus Adam was not worthy to be worshiped: what had really happened to the Lamb was in their eyes the event that proved all along that they were really the “Elect” who had “seen through” this “test” of God which he had placed before them at the Beginning to worship Adam that one time.

What then occurred is that this host now informed the other angels that God had “tempted” them by first giving them the commandment to worship no one than Him: and then later commanding them to worship Adam; which contradicted the first commandment.

And they said they had “triumphed” and were “more holy” and “more perfect” than any of the other angels for having “passed” this “test”.

But they were just a terrible bunch of deluded divine spiritual hypocrites in the 6th heaven; full of concealed and hidden cancerous Pride: they FAILED the Test of God

 Rotten to the Core.

Their apparent “triumph” was that God had made a ‘mistake’ in even making man at all; because now they were the Face that Israel would see in His Vengeance going back from the Curse of Moses for not listening to the one God would send that Moses told them if they did not listen to ( which he reminded them in at the last paragraph of Malachi ) he would personally require their lives.

They didn’t listen and thus Israel was given the full curse of a Merciless God that was their own Self: blind and pitiless; for God had now turned away His face from them. What they were given was later seen in the sword of Mohammed who carried out the start of this Curse of Moses; the “sword drawn out after them” was the sword of “Anti-Semetism“. And they know it.

 Or should; it was the “Day cruel with Wrath, burning like an Oven“.

Sound familiar?

This is what happens in the Qur’an: the broken sentences of a broken-hearted God; the Host which now speaks for him says this by the Voice of God in the pages of the Qur’an……

“God forbid that He should have a Son!”

This is what Mohammed later had them write: but it is not all that he heard: for what Gabriel said after every one of these statements was what God would not let anyone hear at the time but the Seal of the Prophets: which was the nature of the Curse that fell on the descendants of Jacob in losing the title of Israel as God’s elect for having killed the Lamb of God who was His Mercy Incarnate: thus they were disinherited for eternity.

What Mohammed the Servant of God heard, but did not write, were these words that he “sealed up” in his own book: the Eternal Qur’an.

 These words I now reveal that Mohammed also heard each time but was commanded by Gabriel to not write; thus until now no one knew what the Seal was not allowed to reveal each time; until now…..for what was always said after God denied he had a Son was this;

That men would have treated him the way my trusted servants did!!”

This is the realCurse of Allah.

As Malachi promised would come upon the earth; and it did….

 

For in not hearing the whole sentence men never knew the whole truth of the broken heart of God:

for the 7 Vials of Wrath are they which held the 7 Tears of God.

Thus we now find out why David said….

“My God; My God; why hast thou forsaken me??”, at Psalm 22

…. But for the reason heretofore unknown; that God did not abandon David when He turned His Face away from him;

and did so: not to forsake His Son,

………but turned His Face because He did not want His Son to see Him crying..

……and that is where these 7 Tears of God came from; held in the 7 Vials of His Wrath.

In “Francis of Assisi: a Revolutionary Life…page 106…

….offer an alternative pilgrimage route in Italy to replace the pilgrimage to Jerusalem that was lost in the thirteenth century . … In Scene 6 , the Lateran Basilica is the backdrop and site for Pope Innocent III’s first encounter with Saint Francis . … 1253 , Pope Innocent IV , who was present in Assisi for the ceremony , demanded that the church should be made ” more … the true cross , which various popes donated to the basilica ( relics being one of the essential ways to attract pilgrims ) .

THE SECRET OF THE POVERELLO, ie, the “Little Poor One”.

It was those 7 Vials that were given to St. Francis when the Eagle, with the 6 wings, as the Nature of God’s Divine Truth came down to him at the end of the 40 days fast that he finished on that Mountain. La Verna, in Italy; where it said that “the night was lit up bright as day for miles around” when the fourth living creature of the Throne of God came down.

Francis was given the Stigmata; but also the 7 Vials of Wrath; which none have known about. Here is the story,

“The most famous example in history of a seraph’s visit to a human happened on September 14, 1224, when one of the 4 Seraphim angels visited Saint Francis of Assisi, a man who since became one of the world’s most beloved saints.

Francis was praying when the seraph came, and he emerged from the encounter with the miraculous markings of stigmata (five wounds that resemble those that Jesus Christ suffered during his crucifixion) on his body.

Francis was on a prayer retreat in the mountains of La Verna, Italy that morning.

He had been fasting and praying for about a month prior to that time, asking God to teach him how he could best please God.

During his  Bible reading times, Francis had repeatedly come upon passages about Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and sensed that God had something to say to him about how his response to that event would please God. But Francis wasn’t yet sure what God was trying to tell him.

On a mountainside, with other monks nearby, Francis continued to pray, focusing especially on the crucifixion because that day– September 14th — marked the Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross on the church calendar.

A SERAPH  ANGEL APPROACHES.

Eye Shower Curtain, All Seeing Eye of Providence Hand Drawn ...

Then Francis saw one of the highest-ranking angels in creation approaching him. Saint Bonaventure, who served during the same century as a leader in the Franciscan religious order that Saint Francis founded, wrote that Francis:

    “… saw a seraph with six fiery and shining wings descend from the height of heaven.

 And when in swift flight the seraph had reached a spot in the air near the man of God, there appeared between the wings the figure of a man crucified, with his hands and feet extended in the form of a cross and fastened to a cross. Two of the wings were lifted above his head, two were extended for flight and two covered his whole body….”

A Mixture of Joy and Sorrow

Francis responded with mixed emotions to the sight of the seraph before him, Bonaventure wrote:

“When Francis saw this, he was overwhelmed and his heart was flooded with a mixture of joy and sorrow.

He rejoiced because of the gracious way Christ looked upon him under the appearance of a seraph, but the fact that he was fastened to a cross pierced his soul with a sword of compassionate sorrow.

Then a “mysterious and intimate conversation” occurred between the seraph and Francis, leaving Francis “aglow with seraphic love in his soul,” Bonaventure continued. The seraphim angels are known for burning with such passionate love for God that they radiate brilliant light like flames of fire.

After the encounter ended, Francis discovered that the seraph had miraculously given him wounds reminiscent of those that Jesus Christ suffered while sacrificing himself for the world’s sins in the cross.

Those types of wounds, when given supernaturally, have come to be called stigmata. Francis was the first person in recorded history to receive them. ( This is for those who do not know that St. Paul also had the stigmata….)

Miraculous Stigmata Wounds

Bonaventure wrote:

“… it left marks on his body like those of the Crucified as if the impression of a seal had been left on heated wag. The figures of the nails appeared immediately on his hands and feet. The heads of the nails were inside his hands but on top of his feet with their points extending through to the opposite side. His right side too showed a blood-red wound as if it had been pierced by a lance, and blood flowed frequently from it. Because of this new and astounding miracle unheard of in times past, Francis came down from the mountain a new man adorned with the sacred stigmata, bearing in his body the image of the Crucified not made by a craftsman in wood or stone, but fashioned in his members by the hand of the living God.”

Francis lived for two more years after this event. He was in constant pain from the stigmata, but said that the pain helped him understand more about the depth of God’s love for humanity. Since God gave everything on the cross, Francis said, he wanted to respond by giving his all to God with passion, like the Seraphim angels do.

Yet the Vengeance of God was also shown to Francis to hold until the Last Day; as the Eagle is the Fourth Living Creature whose Wind of Heaven; the North Wind of Heaven, had that Horse stolen by Death; whose Rider was to have been Mercy. But since the Lamb was given Death and not Mercy we can see why God chose St. Francis to administer His Vengeance; with the 7 Vials of the Wrath of God to give to his Christbearer; until the Book would be opened…..and the  7 vials poured out….in their ways; as the 7 trumpets were sounded; in their days…..

………………………………………………The Beast of Putin and Image: Donald Trump………………………………………………….

“The smoking Ruin of the Trump Presidency has arrived.”

 

Amen !!!  and….AMEN…

If you didn’t know better, you could easily have concluded that Donald Trump spent the week campaigning for his presumptive Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden.

For most Americans, it was a heart-rending week marked by two tragedies that seemed brutal, senseless, and maddening all at the same time: the cresting of 100,000 American deaths due to coronavirus and the very public murder of George Floyd, a Black man, at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers.

Both of these events were avoidable. One seemed previously unimaginable while the other tragically repeats itself on an endless loop with no end in sight. Honest to god, how many more times do we have to watch white police officers kill people of color in broad daylight before this systemic violence stops? But both events also cried out for leadership and compassion at the highest levels of government.

Instead what America got was Trump’s self-obsessed parade of the grotesque. He spewed unfounded conspiracy theories about a former congressional staffer to Joe Scarborough, prompting the woman’s widower to plead with Twitter take down the tweets.

“I’m asking you to intervene in this instance because the President of the United States has taken something that does not belong to him — the memory of my dead wife — and perverted it for perceived political gain,” Timothy Klausutis wrote to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a letter that was excerpted Tuesday in a New York Times op-ed by Kara Swisher.

Trump then went to war with Twitter, declaring himself the victim of unfair censorship after the company flagged a couple of his tweets about mail-in voting as untrue—a first for Twitter. Trump blew a gasket, issuing an executive order designed to hobble the liability protections for tech companies.

And in a clear admission of the authoritarian leader he would become in a second term, Trump said he would shut Twitter down “if it were legal.” It’s not, yet. But given a second term, Trump would clearly use the force of law discriminately to satisfy himself, just like dictators do.

Trump also pressed forward with his war on wearing masks in public—a position so ludicrously out of step with public opinion that even Senate Republicans tried to tiptoe away from him.

You may have noticed that none Trump’s three main initiatives this week had anything to do with the nation’s grim coronavirus milestone or the senseless killing of George Floyd or Breonna Taylor or countless other people of color.

That’s because Trump hid from the 100,000 pandemic deaths on his watch while promoting state-sponsored violence against the Minneapolis protesters. One instance was a vacuum of leadership, the other was a clear call to arms against noncompliant people of color and anyone supporting them. As Florida Rep. Val Demings told MSNBC Friday, “America is on fire and the president of the United States is walking around with gasoline.”

Both instances teed up Joe Biden to do what anyone capable of real leadership would do: console the country, grieve with it, and light the way to a better future for everyone. In particular, Black Americans and other people of color who have suffered systemic racism since the nation’s founding needed to hear a voice of authority grapple with bringing justice to centuries of persecution.

“The pain is too immense for one community to bear alone,” Biden said in an online address Friday afternoon, calling on “every American” to take up the cause of justice for people of color. “With our complacence, our silence, we are complicit in perpetuating these cycles of violence.”

Biden also stepped up where Trump wouldn’t on the pandemic, promising heartbroken Americans the day would come “when the memory of your loved one will bring a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eyes.” As my Daily Kos colleague Jen Hayden wrote, “If you’ve forgotten what presidential looks like, watch Joe Biden’s heartfelt tribute to 100,000 lives lost.”

America has forgotten what presidential looks like because Trump has bombarded the country with nothing but minute-by-minute reminders of how utterly unfit he is for office and just how dreadfully low humanity can sink. Biden offered the polar opposite this week, starting with the simple act of showing up to do the job when times got tough.

The obvious contrast between the two men could be one reason that Trump’s approvals are taking a beating, that independents and older voters are souring him, and that he’s falling behind in nearly every battleground state. Just take a look at independents in this Civiqs data as of Wednesday.

Trump is now at a 17-point deficit in approvals with indies after being at only a 5-point deficit around mid-March.

Political strategists often say that voters’ attitudes about the economy are baked in by the end of the second quarter. It’s possible that Trump is baking in attitudes about his unfitness for office right now that will be nearly impossible for him to shake in the lead up to the election. Let’s just say, it going to take one hell of a third quarter to undo the damage Trump is doing to himself and the Republican party right now.

The New Face of the GOP, No Future for Democracy in their Amerika, as this armed Hitler-policemandoll in front of Chris Christie’s Office of Governor proves….

The Pentagon told ABC News on April 8 that no such report from the NCMI existed, but Thursday’s news could appear to contradict that denial—though it is unclear if the two reports were the same or just contemporaneous.

I can see it as a scene from Star Wars. Joe McCarthy in his usual drunken slur telling Donald Trump “Donald, I am your father.”

Because he might not be his biological father but he is his ideological father. In 2017 the Trump Administration cancelled an Obama era initiative to mandate infection control for nursing homes and assisted living centers.

So far and the first of many, more 2200 have so far died in them. But to hear Donald Trump on his daily new version of “The Apprentice”, it’s all just a blip on the nation’s radar. And anyone that objects to his version of things is retaliated against. This is classic Joe McCarthy.

That it’s not about what you do, it’s all about anything that can be used to call into question anything his opponents, real or perceived have ever done.

Instead we see a masterful façade of perfusive thanks for his incredible leadership, nothing to see here wrong and control of the narrative and framing the conversation. Classic Joe McCarthy and now Donald Trump.

Truth is at best relative and much of the time at odds to the story to be told. But if it is told strongly enough and you cater to those seeking a reason to hate, then you still win. Again and again, in the tradition of Soviet show trials, McCarthy destroyed the careers and lives of hundreds, just for the slightest inkling of impropriety. Transgressions in their youth. It didn’t matter, only the show mattered.

“…Joe McCarthy rose and fell on the back of the media. It created him and it ate up the show he put on.

It was only when they, the media stopped watching and broadcasting the McCarthy show,

that he was finally stopped. A lesson not ignored by today’s’ Cons and the reason Fox News was so vital to their plans.

Donald Trump as President owes his position to the media….”

The commercial corporate media was used to create him, to nurture him and for all of their protests to the contrary, they were in on the deal. The right wingnut news was there too but without the corporate news machine was probably not enough.

The Cons understood from what happened to Joe McCarthy that if the media stopped showing the new Apprentice, as they had the McCarthy show, it would all fall apart.

The media, all of it is what nurtures and keeps Donald Trump in power. Without them, he would like Joe McCarthy, simply go away and die.

Trump 'diehards' threatening to 'kill all the D.C. traitors' on day of the president's rally: report

Russia moves into position; a Sneak Attack Coordinated with Putin

The Problem with Choosing a Loser for a President

Buried deep in a report claiming Donald Trump has no intention of walking away meekly after Congress certifies the 2020 presidential election on January 6th, the Daily Beast reports that “diehard’ fans of the president are openly threatening violence the day they descend upon Washington D.C. for a “Stop the Steal” rally the president is promoting.

With the president suggesting to aides he may make a public address to the gathering– meant to counter the election certification process on the Senate floor — fans of the president are boasting they will bring a “literal war” to the streets of D.C.

According to the report, “the protesters’ mood ahead of the Jan. 6 protest has turned even more desperate.”

“Trump diehards from across the country have organized their travel to Washington on ‘The Donald‘ forum,” the Beast’s report states.

“One of the hottest topics on the site is how protesters can bring guns to D.C., which would count as a local crime in nearly all circumstances under Washington’s strict gun laws. Others have talked about breaking into federal buildings or committing violence against law enforcement officers who try to stop them from storming Congress.”

One comment that receiving approving nods stated, “I’m thinking it will be literal war on that day. Where we’ll storm offices and physically remove and even kill all the D.C. traitors and reclaim the country.”

The report notes that noted Trump supporter Proud Boy Joe Biggs, boasted on Parler, “Watch out, January 6 — you ain’t gonna know who the f*ck it is standing beside you.”

The Beast also reports that Trump fans are discussing dressing up as Antifa protesters so the anti-fascist group will be blamed for any violence.

 

Barack Obama’s administration made the policy decision to look forward, not back, and to leave the misdeeds of George W. Bush’s administration to history’s judgment. That would be a mistake for the incoming Biden administration. Donald Trump and his henchmen have made a concerted attack on American democracy, and done so much corrupting damage that it would be dereliction to give them a pass.

Three areas in particular need investigation. One is the administration’s denial of climate science, done at the bidding of the fossil fuel industry and its array of front groups. Another is the corruption Trump and his administration fomented within federal agencies.

The last is the damage to the Department of Justice, where Trump cronies — to paraphrase the legendary 19th-century Chief Justice John Marshall — from the citadel of the law turned its guns on those whom they were meant to defend.

The climate denial and obstruction campaign has been deliberately obscured by its protagonists, meaning both the dark-money channels through which its funding flows and its confusing array of front groups.

The scale and scope of this apparatus is stunning; its effects have been devastating.

To expose this scheme will require a robust presidential commission like the one that looked into the 1986 explosion of the Challenger space shuttle. With leading independent citizens guiding it, a large and able staff, robust powers of investigation and public hearing, and the ability to refer cases on for further action, a presidential commission will be equipped to get to the bottom of what may prove to be the most insidious and systematic fraud in American history.

Fortunately, peer-reviewed science and investigative reporting has already looked into the dark-money scheme to attack climate science and to corrupt the political system around climate change. Much of the relevant information is ready to hand.

Whistleblowers will no doubt emerge, once they have a trustworthy place to bring their concerns. And the papers and records of participants in this massive scheme will provide rich seams of evidence. This commission can get a fast start. We must never again allow American democracy to be so disabled by corrupting influence, and a full exposition of what went wrong — and how, and why — will be a powerful investment in the integrity of America’s future governance.

To address corruption within agencies of government, the oversight powers of Congress are particularly well adapted. A special committee of Congress, with its own staff and robust investigative powers, would be most effective. A government that serves the people must have the strength to resist special interest influence; members of Congress would be particularly adept at restoring the resilience of government against such influence.

A special committee provides a single repository for evidence and testimony, and could without hindrance investigate schemes that crossed agency and committee jurisdictions. The committee’s findings and recommendations would go to the public, the administration and the regular standing committees of Congress; case referrals could go to inspectors general, licensing bodies or the Department of Justice, as needed. With an investigative committee on the job, regular standing committees would be free to pursue long-overdue legislative efforts without the burden of this urgent but additional work.

This brings us to the Department of Justice, erstwhile citadel of the law. Because much of the department’s integrity was safeguarded by institutional norms and traditions, and because of the special nature of the department’s responsibilities, respected Justice veterans should guide its restoration.

President Biden’s new attorney general should be tasked to form a bipartisan advisory committee, linked to the DOJ’s inspector general and Office of Professional Responsibility, but with its own staff. Tasking clean-up recommendations to this group will allow the department’s divisions to move forward with their regular duties.

Personnel actions and referrals of cases may be necessary; institutional norms and enforcement must be strengthened; new safeguards will need to be constructed; and changes in administrative structure may be needed. The Office of Legal Counsel, for instance, has run so many political errands and is so discredited that it should perhaps have its work distributed elsewhere within the Justice Department.

The Obama administration was right that a new American government must move forward. We face big issues — climate change in particular, but many others as well — where the price of failure will be unacceptably high. But failure to look back is not an option this time.

 

Whether the goal at the end of the day is truth and reconciliation, procedural and institutional reform, or justice and accountability for misdeeds, investigations will be essential. Separate investigative bodies assigned to these tasks will leave regular agencies and committees free to begin the urgent business of governing, and move us forward.

We must never again allow American democracy to be so disabled by corrupting influence, and a full exposition of what went wrong — and how, and why — will be a powerful investment in the integrity of America’s future governance.

To address corruption within agencies of government, the oversight powers of Congress are particularly well adapted. A special committee of Congress, with its own staff and robust investigative powers, would be most effective. A government that serves the people must have the strength to resist special interest influence; members of Congress would be particularly adept at restoring the resilience of government against such influence.

 

A special committee provides a single repository for evidence and testimony, and could without hindrance investigate schemes that crossed agency and committee jurisdictions. The committee’s findings and recommendations would go to the public, the administration and the regular standing committees of Congress; case referrals could go to inspectors general, licensing bodies or the Department of Justice, as needed. With an investigative committee on the job, regular standing committees would be free to pursue long-overdue legislative efforts without the burden of this urgent but additional work.

This brings us to the Department of Justice, erstwhile citadel of the law. Because much of the department’s integrity was safeguarded by institutional norms and traditions, and because of the special nature of the department’s responsibilities, respected Justice veterans should guide its restoration. President Biden’s new attorney general should be tasked to form a bipartisan advisory committee, linked to the DOJ’s inspector general and Office of Professional Responsibility, but with its own staff.

Tasking clean-up recommendations to this group will allow the department’s divisions to move forward with their regular duties. Personnel actions and referrals of cases may be necessary; institutional norms and enforcement must be strengthened; new safeguards will need to be constructed; and changes in administrative structure may be needed.

The Office of Legal Counsel, for instance, has run so many political errands and is so discredited that it should perhaps have its work distributed elsewhere within the Justice Department.

The Obama administration was right that a new American government must move forward. We face big issues — climate change in particular, but many others as well — where the price of failure will be unacceptably high. But failure to look back is not an option this time.

Whether the goal at the end of the day is truth and reconciliation, procedural and institutional reform, or justice and accountability for misdeeds, investigations will be essential. Separate investigative bodies assigned to these tasks will leave regular agencies and committees free to begin the urgent business of governing, and move us forward.

“Peace and Safety” ? LENT steps forth as the Thief in the Night; Trump Loses It All in the 40 Days of ATONEMENT: and the 7th Vial of Wrath as the Last Plague of Revelation

The Son of Perdition and the Last Trump

“How Trump decided that People should go back to Work by Easter”

Now even Easter on April 12th has been cancelled by the Pope…two weeks ago… by Papal Decree

……no Mass Service outside at the Vatican in Easter…Clear and present danger….

…….the Pope cancelled it for Public Safety as Italy is hit hard by the Last Plague of the 7th Plague of the 7th Angel…that one poured out into the Air… Airborne….

…..even if millions would then end up dying” 

 “I also will choose their delusions,

and will bring their fears upon them;

because when I called, none did answer;

when I spake, they did not hear:

but they did evil before mine eyes,

and chose that in which I delighted not.”

Isaiah 66:4

The Vengeance of my Father Jesus: the Living God

Now even Easter on April 12th has been cancelled by the Pope…two weeks ago..no Mass Service outside at the Vatican…..the Pope cancelled it for concerns about Public Safety as Italy is hit hard by the Last Plague

That of the 7th Plague of the 7th Angel…that one poured out into the Air… Airborne….

Corona also means “as of the Halo of the Sun”….that of the 7th Vial of the Wrath of God and the Lamb…in this Easter 3 days after the End of the 40 Days of Lent on April 9th….due to the fact that everything will end up being taken from Trump the Son of Perdition……..as it is Written:

…even “that which he seemeth to have…”

Messed by cheating, ain’t gonna ever learn.

Ev’rybody trying to step on their Creator.


Don’t matter where you are, ev’rybody, ev’rybody gonna
Need some kind of ventilator, some kind of ventilator.

The Sign Over Nuremberg

In the morning of April 14, 1561, at daybreak, between 4 and 5 a.m., a dreadful apparition occurred on the sun, and then this was seen in Nuremberg in the city, before the gates and in the country – by many men and women. At first there appeared in the middle of the sun two blood-red semi-circular arcs, just like the moon in its last quarter.

And in the sun, above and below and on both sides, the color was blood, there stood a round ball of partly dull, partly black ferrous color. Likewise there stood on both sides and as a torus about the sun such blood-red ones and other balls in large number, about three in a line and four in a square, also some alone.

In between these globes there were visible a few blood-red crosses, between which there were blood-red strips, becoming thicker to the rear and in the front malleable like the rods of reed-grass, which were intermingled, among them two big rods, one on the right, the other to the left, and within the small and big rods there were three, also four and more globes.

These all started to fight among themselves, so that the globes, which were first in the sun, flew out to the ones standing on both sides, thereafter, the globes standing outside the sun, in the small and large rods, flew into the sun. Besides the globes flew back and forth among themselves and fought vehemently with each other for over an hour.

And when the conflict in and again out of the sun was most intense, they became fatigued to such an extent that they all, as said above, fell from the sun down upon the earth ‘as if they all burned’ and they then wasted away on the earth with immense smoke.

After all this there was something like a black spear, very long and thick, sighted; the shaft pointed to the east, the point pointed west. Whatever such signs mean, God alone knows.

Why Trump is Now Slowly Realizing How he Will Lose Everything: Including Reelection

And so; the Swift Destruction Prophesied about the Fate of the Son of Perdition has come to Pass…with more to come….

Donald Trumps Platform: the Hideous Legacy of Trumpism; Trump as the Three-headed Cerberus of Hell in One:….a composite of Hitler’s Nationalism/Mussolini’s Tribalism/and Hirohito’s Imperialism

The Hybrid Religion of Bigotry where Arrogance marries Ignorance is for those who Worship the Neo Nazi European Axis Beast of White Nationalism…. and the Antebellum Neo Confederate White Supremacist Amerikkkan Image: Donald Trump…

What Trump has taken Credit for the most is the Stock Market.…the RISING Stock Market, lots and lots of Jobs, very low Unemployment; the Racist Monument to his Base – the Border Wall against Mexico, the anti-China Protective Tariffs; ………and the Immigration and Travel Ban on Muslims as well, a few other things…he couldn’t miss….!!!

But now ???? Lets take a look at the Judgment beginning to Fall on the Son of the Devil…

1. The Great Stock Market and Donald Trump: the First Blow…The DOW falls

Donald has always looked at the Stock Market as his Ace…..the one thing that would guarantee he’d be a shoo-in for reelection in 2020….  everyone’s 401K was looking good…DimWit Donald though he had it ALL SOWN UP!!!

Nope….with the advent of the Last Plague of the 7 Vials of Wrath of Revelation “poured out into the Air“……..Airborne Virus… and then the Oil War with Kushner’s buddy Saudi Arabia and Trumps buddy Russia tanking the Domestic Shale Oil Market ….Horrors !!!….Trump now watched all the money made in the Market since he was sworn-in.2016…….EVAPORATE…  GONE in one week….10 days….it was all over…. but the sniveling…

2. The Strong Job Market and Donald Trump: the Second Blow…No one can Work.,..Job Market Falls

Because half of the workers in America work paycheck to paycheck it was only natural that people had to saddle up with at least two part-time jobs each….. sometimes both parents in a family both doing double-duty…….since no real full time employment was available for 150 million Americans… Trump and the GOP crowed about how everybody was working…knowing full well that since the wages were being so artificially low no one could get ahead.…and no one had any money in the bank…at all…. wage slaves…modern day feudalism and indentured serfdom.

Thus it LOOKED like the employment figures were great…hiding the fact that the multiple jobs at starvation wages of $7.25 an hour weren’t enough to feed and house a dog…much less a family trying to afford their own home...forget it !!!

3. The Low Unemployment Figures and Donald Trump: the Third Blow…The Unemployment figures Dwarf the 1929 Crash of the great Depression

But now: no one non-essential can leave their house to go to work because of the Plague Lock Down...so now 5 million unemployment claims will go out by the end of March…another 5 million by April 12th..

So now Donald can’t brag about low unemployment…along with high employment…both are gone….

4. The Strong Trump Hotel Business and Donald Trump: the Fourth Blow

Donald has been using his Hotels as the place where bribes can be paid by those who rent entire floors but never actually check in…. but 6 of his 7 highest grossing hotels are now effectively closed…he’s losing money hand over fist,…

The gifting game with foreign money being laundered through his business as the royal scam he was playing……especially in DC…is now shut down….

5. The Strong Real Estate Business and Donald Trump….business is off…for the next Quarter…

Now all that investment income has dried up…as no one can travel or inspect what he sells…..  

No one trusts Trump to provide what he promises.…ever….

6. The Strong Campaign business and Merchandise selling Rallies and Donald Trump.

No rallies…so no energy transfusions…Trump is a performer…he gets a huge charge from the crowds…but but for now that is gone…Trump does not even feel alive without the crowd.... the roar of the crowd…their clapping and cheers….are what give him a sense of identity….

Without the affirmation of the crowd to feel loved and important Trump feels lost and alone.... and no one is there to buy his junk at the rallies…so that is also gone…along with his followers…mercenaries every one of them….

The Day of Sudden Destruction

The problem that Trump and the GOP are now facing is that the entire platform on which Trump stood; that bulwark of positive factors in his Administrations favor in which Trump trusted, with all it’s components necessary in enabling the GOP to keep propping up the hollow edifice of his Antichristian assault on America at the behest of his veritable earthly owner, Vlad Putin; the Fascist Christ…that platform on which he has been campaigning…. is gone…”POOF”….

Why Trump is Now Realizing Why he Will Lose Everything: Including Reelection

Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that he hopes to see churches “packed” for Easter in a few weeks, even as the Coronavirus continues to spread across the country. Despite this, several Catholic archdioceses are canceling their public Holy Week and Easter Masses, and many congregations are moving them to the internet.

As he urged the country to reopen businesses and schools by April 12 — flouting public health recommendations — Trump told Fox News on Tuesday that he chose the date based on his “very special” relationship with the holiday.

“Wouldn’t it be great to have all the churches full?” Trump said.

“You’ll have packed churches all over our country

… I think it’ll be a beautiful time.”

Despite Trump’s call, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced Wednesday that it would hold no public Masses for Holy Week or Easter Sunday.

“The Coronavirus (COVID 19) challenges us to celebrate the Mysteries of Christ for the glory of the Father and our sanctification with reasonable limitations and in cooperation with directives from government and health officials to stem the spread of the virus,” it explained.

In a seven-page directive, the archdiocese’s Office for Divine Worship stated, “All possible electronic and spiritual resources are to be made available to the faithful to enter into these days which celebrate the greatest mysteries of our redemption,” including livestreaming.

In an email, a spokesperson for the archdiocese noted that the governor had issued Pennsylvania’s public gathering limits.

“In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we are under stay-at-home orders, and large public gatherings are not permitted by directive of the governor,” he wrote.

“The Archdiocese of Philadelphia continues to do everything possible to provide for the pastoral needs of the faithful in the five-county area while at the same time respecting and abiding by directives from government agencies and officials that are in place to provide for the health and welfare of the community-at-large.”

The New York Archdiocese has already canceled public Easter masses. So have the Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut; the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan; the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey; the Archdiocese of Portland, Oregon; and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

A spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee said they “would also love to see its Churches packed for Easter. However, in our current situation, Wisconsin’s Governor [Tony Evers] has issued a ‘Safer at Home’ Executive Order through April 24.

We continue to see our archdiocese and community impacted by the CoVID-19/Coronavirus. Our intention is to use sound judgement and common sense in making decisions for the pastoral care of our people without taking unnecessary risk, including for the many priests, and lay men and women who minister within the archdiocese.”

According to the Washington Examiner, it’s not just those archdioceses closing for Easter.

“Catholic and Episcopal dioceses in every state have canceled,” the paper reported Wednesday. “Many megachurches, as well as smaller congregations, have made similar decisions, advising their members to participate in worship through live-streamed services.”

In a March 17 letter published on the website of the Episcopal Church, presiding Bishop Michael Curry urged suspension of all “in-person gatherings for public worship, in most contexts, during the sacred time of Holy Week and Easter Day,” writing, “Because this is a global health crisis, the principles in this letter apply throughout The Episcopal Church, including beyond the United States.”

With a recent poll showing about half of Americans unwilling to attend church due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and with state restrictions on public gatherings still in effect, Trump’s vision of packed Easter services seems increasingly unlikely to come true.

Isaiah 66 King James Version (KJV)

5 Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word;

Your brethren that hated you,

that cast you out for my name’s sake,

said,

“Let the Lord be glorified”:

but he shall appear to your joy,

and they shall be ashamed.

6 A voice of noise from the city,

a voice from the temple,

a voice of the Lord 

that

rendereth recompence to his enemies.

The Theft of the Presidency from Bernie Sanders by Stealing the Primaries by the DNC: Undeniable PROOF

According to raw exit polls found and studied by TDMS Research from DNC primary voting, more people are saying they voted for Bernie Sanders than the results are showing. Proof of Fraud beyond the shadow of a doubt

7 Before she travailed, she brought forth;

before her pain came,

she was delivered of a Man Child.

8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things?

Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?

or shall a nation be born at once?

for as soon as Zion travailed,

she brought forth her children.

9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord:

shall I cause to bring forth,

and shut the womb?

saith thy God.

10 Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her,

all ye that love her: 

rejoice for joy with her,

all ye that mourn for her:

11 That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.

12 For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.

13 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

14 And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the Lord shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

15 For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

16 For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.

17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.

18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the Lord, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord.

21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the Lord.

22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain.

23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
