How does awareness of inevitable tribulations affect our behavior? How will we act when overwhelmed by an external crisis? The Spirit-annointed person is not defined as the individual who runs from death the best & avoids storms, crisis & destruction, although he or she may do that; but rather the Spirit-annointed person is the one who in the midst of a storm can endure & maintain his or her Christlike demeanor for the duration of the test. Nor is the Spirit-annointed person all-knowing, but must master each storm of life with imperfect knowledge by resorting to faith, love, & hope…the greatest of these being love.(A) We know in part and prophecy in part. (B) Beginning about 1759, when an astronomer first saw a moon around Venus, there were about 12 additional astronomers who saw the moon also, and it was named Neith. In 1887, the enigmatic moon was discovered to be a fixed star that would appear in the vicinity of Venus, unrelated to Venus and simply a background object. So we know in part. Before 2000, all I could do concerning Y2K was keep my head & provide people with 12 different scenarios (levels of disaster) ranging from nearly nothing happening, to the World coming to a standstill…with my guestimate of which was likeliest. We prophecy in part.
PROPHECY SHALL FAIL, & KNOWLEDGE IS LIMITED. “Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge; it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophecy in part.” (1 COR 13:8-9) It is so true that the best of us are very limited in what we know; and just like the apostles, we at best, are only able to prophecy in part. No matter how sure some people are about their interpretation of prophecy, no matter how sure someone is about aliens, we know only in part. But we do know that how we act is important. We are to put on the mind of Christ, and allow God’s divine Spirit to guide us in acting in a way that the good fruit of God’s holy Spirit manifests itself in our lives. Circumstances may defeat us, but like Christ we will maintain our holiness & dignity. Reminds me of how Robert E. Lee was dignified even in defeat at Appomattox. It reminds of the Christian minister who was sacrificed by an Illuminati coven. One of the persons I was helping escape the Illuminati told me how they had kidnapped a minister to sacrifice…but the tables turned on the coven, because he faced his death with such Christlike godliness, that his death was a witness for goodness & God.
E.T.s?? After 1,000s of hours of sincere research over 5 decades into the truth about E.T.s, my knowledge is still in part. The subject goes back to the Greek philosophers, who took opposite sides of the issue. Epicurus (341-270 B.C.), Plato (427-347 B.C.) & Pythagoras are 3 Greek philosophers who believed ETs existed. Aristotle on the other hand rejected the idea. He felt the Earth was unique. The debate has come forward to our day & age, and is still not resolved. H.G. Wells’ book War of the Worlds (1898) dreamed of Martians invading the earth. What is significant is H.G. Wells has been called by some Freemasons their greatest prophet. People are hungry to learn from E.T.s. When an L.A. TV show claimed to have a message from an ET, they got hundreds of calls from listeners who wanted to hear the message. Something is responsible for these ET encounters,… are they merely pretending humans who claim to be aliens?? are they fallen angels? Evil interdimensional beings? All of these things?? I don’t know how many times over the last 3 decades people have sought me out to find the answers. And while as a researcher, I have learned far more than most on the topic…honestly, we all see & know in part. Oh, but some are sure of the details because of their interpretation of the Holy Scriptures.
HAVE WE DECODED END TIME PROPHECY CORRECTLY?? There is no question that certain features will occupy the end times, for instance: apostasy, the tribulation, judgment, the Kingdom of God increasing in glory, the millennium, & the return of Christ. His return is prophesied using 3 words: Parousia which means presence/arrival… seen for instance at MT 24:27, apokalupto which means to be revealed as at 2 THS 1:7, and apokalypsis, which means the disclosure/revelation of Christ as we see in Revelations. And yet, technically, he has said he would never leave us because his Spirit would remain with mankind, so his return has to be more than a presence (like the JWs claim occurred at the end of WW I). To be frank, God has lots of elbow room as to how He fulfills Biblical prophecy. I believe this was intentional so the enemy does not know His exact plans. Heaven knows, this overwhelming rising evil in this World has studied Biblical prophecy with a “fine tooth comb” and has set out to manipulate all its scenarios. We truly live in an age of deception. The pervasive mass manipulation of information means the World truly lives in a Matrix. One commercial shows people sipping martinis from the rooftops of an underwater NYC, with the slogan “Global Warming Ready”. But what are the central truths about the end times that the Word of God communicates to us???
HISTORY HAS A POSITIVE MEANING. One of the central truths is that history has a positive meaning because it is not random or out of control (in spite of tribulations & trials), but is under the direction of God. So in Luke 21:11 we are warned that the end time will have “Great earthquakes, fearful sights & great signs in the sky.” REV 8:7 warns that 1/3 of the trees, green grass & crops will be burned up. Honestly people, when I study the possibility that a comet or asteroid could come close & affect the earth, or create a contextual pretext where HAARP could be used & blamed on that passing body…when I study the overdue 9.0 earthquake that must hit off of Oregon’s coast which every 200+ years has hit due to subluxation of the tectonic plates, & that it’s resulting tsunami would wipe out Portland & parts of the west coast…when I study so many of these kinds of overwhelming but likely events…I realize that most people will be unprepared to face these crises. It is perhaps impossible to plan for a major axis shift, or a burst of energy from the sun. Not only does science warn us of these things, the Bible does too!! But science gives us no context, nothing positive, no positive frame of reference. The Bible frames it in a positive narrative full of meaning. Mankind may go one step forward, one step back, but it is passing through time like one advances through the week…at some point you reach the Sabbath! Even God’s Sabbath is a prophetic sign to reassure mankind that the “work week of pain & suffering” will end with a millennium. We see moral decay, but we take reassurance from this as a sign that moral progress is still continuing because—yes because, we were warned that this moral decay would occur on the road of spiritual progress. And through it all, like the believer in Psalm 23, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod & Your staff they comfort me.”
PEOPLE, WHEN YOU PLAY THE END GAME, ACT AS CHRIST WOULD WANT YOU TO ACT. As Kipling wrote so excellently, and because his poem tells my message so much better than I could ever tell it, I share it now with you:
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!
