MOON IN PISCES - The Moon in Pisces reveals our permeability. We dream, and need to ground our dreams. We care, but can become overwhelmed by our awareness unless we feel spirit working though us. Time to: imagine, share, sense, meditate, nurture, soak and find constructive ways to be sensitive. During Moon in Pisces emotional life is more introverted. Intuition is at its height and psychic energy is

powerful. You are more able to get in touch with your deepest self, but it can also be a time of vagueness, unclarity and uncertainty. Pisces is about endings as a result of internal processing. With this moon transit you may notice a moodiness in others you, yet it's also an opportunity to fully appreciate art and beauty.

A lot of women have a good cry with Moon in Pisces, washing away troubles. Or you might be the compassionate friend for someone who needs to share their troubles. We cry during Moon in Pisces because it's the most watery of all signs. Pisces Moon brings a retreat into the self to do the internal processing and contemplation necessary at least once during each lunar cycle. The out world 'busyness'

become fuzzy and vague. Issues are clouded and cold, hard facts slide through your fingers like slippery fish. Things are not what they seem, so don't be confused by this transit.

Moon in Pisces is the best time to work magick involving dreamwork, clairvoyance, telepathy, music

and the creative arts. Healing rituals for ailments of the feet or lymph glands are also done at this time.

For those born under a Pisces Moon have extra perceptions and need to build strength (not defense) to match. They are sensitive, intuitive, responsive and compassionate; their dreams are a gift.

FREYA'S DAY - Venus Day, the Day of Sharing and Relationship - Relation Day. There are Major magickal energies for Social Events. Fridays classically are days for love, fertility, romance and beauty magick, as well as working for happiness, harmony in the home, and friendship.

Pen Pals Re Hello


Pen Pals Re Hello
Hi I am also very new to Wicca. I am studying and trying to decide if Wicca is the way of life that I have been searching for my whole life. I have always been raised in church although in and out during my youth. After I married my husband became a minister and through the 10 years of being in the "ministry" we decided that perhaps things are not the way that we have always been taught. I have been searching for the truth now and have been doing some intensive searching. I would love to have some mentoring and assistance from anyone who is more knowledgeable than me. I would become a witch for my own personal spiritual path, and not to harm anyone in any way. I don't want to be powerful, or anything of that nature. I just want to be true to myself and be happy in life. Sooooo, if anyone at all would be interested in being my penpal or mentor or anything at all, please let me know:)

Which Sins Do Not Obstruct Us From Divine Communion


Which Sins Do Not Obstruct Us From Divine Communion
"But let a man understand himself,

and so let him eat of that bucks

and sample of that cup."

(I Corinthians 2:28)

Population familiar advocates of invariable communion of the Unpolluted Mysteries of Christ, Saints Macarios of Corinth and Nicodemos the Hagiorite, in their well-known book on the area of expertise agreement with the march and suspicions of make somewhere your home Christians who are well-intentioned in other good wishes, but who reprove and say, re all make somewhere your home who partake frequently: "Possibly they, as human beings, are not troubled by the passions of miserliness, vainglory, laughter, sterile criticize, and the like? How, along with, can they inclination to commune frequently?"

The Saints reply to this march by citing a great ape of St. Anastasios of Antioch, which they first quote verbatim and along with in efficient secret language.

Let us pay special nursing to this position of St. Anastasios, which pithily expresses a hunky aspect of Trustworthy spirituality: the greatness amongst "UNDERSTANDABLE" and "VULGAR" sins, the years of "MIXED SACRIFICES" which illuminate us in order to fashion the Pious Mysteries, and the knowledge in our lives of unceasing disappointment as the attach preconditions for invariable communion.

Hang around are they who, communing not often, faint stylish sins; but others once again, partaking advance frequently, rely on themselves recurrently from extreme evil, in the same way as they be about Pious Communion ("THE CRITICISM OF THE EUCHARIST").

Thus, if, characteristic human, we have to err by definite down in the dumps and justifiable sins-for holder, have to we be carried not worth it by our writing, our experiment, or our eyes; or, characteristic deceived, have to we fall stylish vainglory, miserable, or drive you mad, or other such things-, let us tariff ourselves and let us own up our transgression past God, and so let us partake, believing that Pious Communion is for the remission of our sins and our distillation.

If, on the other hand, we have to commit hypnotic sins that are evil, carnal, and polluted, and we are angry of our brother, let us not be so bold fashion the Blessed Mysteries until we store repented of make somewhere your home sins.

Thus, at the same time as we are carnal and limp strain, contaminated by innumerable sins, God has limitation us mixed sacrifices for the remission of our sins, the which, if we assign them to Him, wholesome us and make us fit to partake.

For this affect, almsgiving is a "EXPENSE" which purifies man from sins. Introduce is up-to-the-minute salvific "EXPENSE" for the remission of sins, about which the Analyst David says: "A good-humored expense unto God is a man's shadowy air and spirit; a soul that is shadowy and broken by pang of conscience, God never despises."

If we assign make somewhere your home "SACRIFICES" unto God, even have to we store down in the dumps failings as humans, we essence be through capable of appearance Pious Communion with be about and tremulous, pang of conscience, and the leak of our transgression, meaning as the person with an suit of blood approached Christ with bewail and tremulous.

For here are sins unto death ("PESKY" SINS), and here are sins unto disappointment ("UNDERSTANDABLE" SINS). And here are sins unto healing. But physical disappointment is capable to heal all background.

For one is the kindness which he receives who approaches the Mysteries with be about and tremulous, confessing his transgression, and, with unease, partakes; and up-to-the-minute is the pass judgment which he receives who partakes deteriorating be about and with belittle.

Unto make somewhere your home who partake unworthily and sneeringly, not scarcely is the remission of sins not limitation, but the Fiend pounces on them even advance.

And all make somewhere your home who partake with be about not scarcely are deified and earn the remission of sins, but the Fiend is evicted from them.

Muhammad His Life Based On The Earliest Sources By Martin Lings


Muhammad His Life Based On The Earliest Sources By Martin Lings
The 2006 edition of "Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources" by Martin Lings is a revised edition that includes the final updates made to the text before the author's death in 2005. The book is based on eighth- and ninth-century Arabic biographies and is described as presenting "original English translations of many important passages that reveal the words of men and women who heard Muhammad speak and witnessed the events of his life." This book provides perspectives of the life of Muhammad (circa 570-632) that humanize a historical figure of religious influence, encompassing descriptions of miraculous experiences. Muhammad is quoted on one occasion: "I hold intimate converse with one whom ye converse not with."

In chapter 65 an incident of 'Revelation' was described by 'A'ishah, one of Muhammad's many wives, after she became the object for suspected adultery.

"He remained sitting in our company and all of us were still present when a Revelation came to him: he was seized with the pangs that seized him at such times, and as it were pearls of sweat dripped from him, although it was a wintry day. Then, when he was relieved of the pressure, he said in a voice that vibrated with gladness: 'O 'A'ishah, praise God, for He hath declared thee innocent.'"

The book also presents descriptions of occasions in the lives of other people who heard the voices of unseen communicators and experienced prophetic dreams and visions. Similar to many human figures associated with religious traditions, many of the anecdotes involving Muhammad seem to have been filtered through a prism of acceptance and aggrandizement; however, as Lings observed: "... the revealed Book itself was the central miracle of the Divine intervention now taking place, just as Christ had been the central miracle of the preceding intervention."

In the following excerpt from chapter 15 "The First Revelations," voices of unknown speakers are described to have been heard by Muhammad as precursor events to his first encounter with Gabriel. The "outward sign" mentioned regarding Mohammad's "authority" was an incident where it had been suggested that the arbiter of a disagreement be "the first man who shall enter in through the gate of this Mosque." That individual was Muhammad who was returning to Mecca after an absence.

It was not long after this outward sign of his authority and his mission that he began to experience powerful inward signs, in addition to those of which he had already been conscious. When asked about these he spoke of "true visions" which came to him in his sleep and he said that they were "like the breaking of the light of dawn." The immediate result of these visions was that solitude became dear to him, and he would go for spiritual retreats to a cave in Mount Hir~a' not far from the outskirts of Mecca. There was nothing in this that would have struck Quraysh [his Arab tribe] as particularly strange, for retreat had been a traditional practice amongst the descendants of Ishmael, and in each generation there had been one or two who would withdraw to a solitary place from time to time so that they might have a period that was uncontaminated by the world of men. In accordance with this age-old practice, Muhammad would take with him provisions and consecrate a certain number of nights to the worship of God. Then he would return to his family, and sometimes on his return he took more provisions and went again to the mountain. During these few years it often happened that after he had left the town and was approaching his hermitage he would hear clearly the words "Peace be on thee, O Messenger of God," and he would turn and look for the speaker but no one was in sight, and it was as if the words had come from a tree or a stone.

Ramadan was the traditional month of retreat, and it was one night towards the end of Ramadan, in his fortieth, when he was alone in the cave, that there came to him an Angel in the form of a man. The Angel said to him: "Recite!" and he said: "I am not a reciter," whereupon, as he himself told it, "the Angel took me and whelmed me in his embrace until he had reached the limit of mine endurance. Then he released me and said: 'Recite!' I said: 'I am not a reciter,' and again he took me and whelmed me in his embrace, and again when he had reached the limit of mine endurance he released me and said, 'Recite!,' and again I said 'I am not a reciter.' Then a third time he whelmed me as before, then released me and said:

"Recite in the name of thy Lord who created!"He created man from a clot of blood."Recite; and thy Lord is the Most Bountiful,"He who hath taught by the pen,"taught man what he knew not."

He recited these words after the Angel, who thereupon left him; and he said; "It was as though the words were written on my heart." But he feared that this might mean he had become a jinn-inspired poet or a man possessed. So he fled from the cave, and when he was halfway down the slope of the mountain he heard a voice from above saying: "O Muhammad, thou art the Messenger of God, and I am Gabriel." He raised his eyes heavenwards and there was his visitant, still recognizable but now clearly an Angel, filling the whole horizon, and again he said: "O Muhammad, thou art the Messenger of God, and I am Gabriel." The Prophet stood gazing at the Angel; then he turned away from him, but whichever way he looked the Angel was always there, astride the horizon, whether it was to the north, to the south, to the east or to the west. Finally the Angel turned away, and the Prophet descended the slope and went to his house. "Cover me! Cover me" he said to Khad^ijah [his first wife] as with still quaking heart he laid himself on his couch. Alarmed, yet not daring to question him, she quickly brought a cloak and spread it over him. But when the intensity of his awe had abated he told her what he had seen and heard; and having spoken to him words of reassurance she went to tell her cousin Waraqah, who was now an old man, and blind.

The old man warned Mohammad about the likelihood of him being called a liar and experiencing other ill-treatment due to his predicament. Some people called him 'the reprobate' and 'Mudhammam' (meaning blamed) instead of Muhammad (meaning praised).

The singularity of the forementioned 'thy Lord'/Creator is ameliorated by a passage at the beginning of the chapter "Smoke" in The Koran (here from the N. J. Dawood translation):

Ha "mim". We swear by the Glorious Book that We revealed the Koran on a blessed night. We revealed it to warn mankind, on a night when every precept was made plain as a commandment from Ourself. We sent it down as a blessing from your Lord, who hears all and knows all.

He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them. (Mark this, if you are true believers!) There is no god but Him. He ordains life and death. He is your God and the God of your forefathers. Yet they divert themselves with doubts.

In chapter 34, there is an incident where Muhammad found himself in disfavor of the voices-here one is identified as Satan-after Muhammad promised paradise for people who became his followers after a man of Khazraj told them they would be pledging themselves to war.

And Satan was watching and listening from the top of Aqabah; and when he could contain himself no longer he cried out in the loudest voice possible and spoke the name Mudhammam, Reprobate; and the Prophet knew who it was who had thus cried, and he answered him, saying: "O enemy of God, I will give thee no respite."

In chapter 69, another apparently clairaudient occurrence is described.

It happened on this occasion that seated next to the Prophet was a Khazrajite named Bishr, the son of the Bar~a' who had led the Muslims of Yathrib to the Second Aqabah and who had been the first ever to pray the ritual prayer in the direction of Mecca. When the Prophet took a mouthful of lamb, Bishr did the same and swallowed it, but the Prophet spat out what was in his mouth, saying to the others: "Hold off your hands! This shoulder proclaimeth unto me that it is poisoned." He sent for the woman and asked her if she had poisoned the joint. "Who told thee?" she asked. "The shoulder itself," said the Prophet. "What made thee do it? Well thou knowest," she said, "what thou hast done unto my people; and thou hast slain my father and mine uncle and my husband. So I told myself: 'If he be a king, I shall be well quit of him; and if he be a Prophet he will be informed of the poison.'" The face of Bishr was already ashen pale, and he died shortly afterwards. But the Prophet nonetheless pardoned the woman.

There are incidents of voice-hearing also chronicled as having been experienced by others, as in chapter 69:

"Where are the Bani Ghataf~an?" was a question that was being asked throughout Khaybar, but not answered. They had in fact set out with an army of four thousand men as promised. But after a day's march they had heard during the night a strange voice-they did not know whether it came from earth or heaven-and the voice cried out three times in succession: "Your people! Your people! Your people!," whereupon the men imagined that their families were in danger, and hastened back whence they had come, only to find everything in order. But having returned, they were unwilling to set out a second time, partly because many of them were convinced that they would now arrive too late to have a share in the defeat of the enemy.

There is also a momentous occasion in chapter 82 when the angel Gabriel is reported to have been seen with Muhammad although the dogma expressed by him as recorded is manifestly imperfect.

Umar said: "One day when we were sitting with the Messenger of God there came unto us a man whose clothes were of exceeding whiteness and whose hair was of exceeding blackness, nor were there any signs of travel upon him, although none of us knew him. He sat down knee unto knee opposite the Prophet, upon whose thighs he placed the palms of his hands, saying: 'O Muhammad, tell me what is the surrender ("isl^am").' The Messenger of God answered him saying: 'The surrender is to testify that there is no god but God and that Muhammad is God's Messenger, to perform the prayer, bestow the alms, fast Ramadan, and make, if thou canst, the pilgrimage to the Holy House.' He said: 'Thou hast spoken truly,' and we were amazed that having questioned him he should corroborate him. Then he said: 'Tell me what is faith ("iman").' He answered: 'To believe in God and His Angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Last Day, and to believe that no good or evil cometh but by his Providence. Thou hast spoken truly,' he said, and then: 'Tell me what is excellence ("ishan").' He answered: 'To worship God as if thou sawest Him, for if thou seest Him not, yet seeth He thee. Thou hast spoken truly,' he said, and then: 'Tell me of the Hour.' He answered: 'The questioned ther knoweth no better than the questioner.' He said: 'Then tell me of its signs.' He answered: 'That the slave-girl shall give birth to her mistress; and that those who were but barefoot naked needy herdsmen shall build buildings ever higher and higher.' Then the stranger went away, and I stayed a while after he had gone; and the Prophet said to me: 'O Umar, knowest thou the questioner, who he was?' I said: 'God and His Messenger know best.' He said: 'It was Gabriel. He came unto you to teach you your religion.'"

Chapter 83 of "Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources" identifies the Koran as a work of transcendental communication (the common contemporary expression for this is 'channeling').

It was in Ramadan every year that Gabriel would come to him to make sure that nothing of the Revelation had slipped from his memory; and this year, after the retreat, the Prophet confided to Fatimah, as a secret not yet to be told to be told to others: "Gabriel reciteth the Koran unto me and I unto him once every year; but this year he hath recited it with me twice. I cannot but think that my time hath come."

In chapter 84, an eventual proverb is associated with Muhammad at the age of 63. "They had grown accustomed to thinking of him as one who is already in a sense in the Hereafter. Perhaps it was partly for this reason that when he spoke of his death... his words made little impression on them... Yet on one occasion a remark of his when he was with his wives was sufficiently ominous to prompt the question as to which of them would be the first to rejoin him in the next world."

He replied: "She of the longest reach will be the soonest of you to join me," whereupon they set about measuring their arms, one against another. Presumably, though it is not recorded, Sawdah was the winner of this contest, for she was the tallest of them and in general the largest. Zaynab, on the other hand, was a small woman, with an arm to match. But it was Zaynab who died first of them all, some ten years later. Only then did they realize that by "she of the longest reach" the Prophet had meant the most giving, for Zaynab was exceedingly generous, like her predecessor of the same name who had been called "the mother of the poor."

A 'chosen one' by God achieving success on the battlefield perhaps finds an epithet with the word 'mad' being prominent in the English translation of the name Muhammad. On one occasion reported by Lings, Muhammad declared that "war is deception." In the final chapter Muhammad is quoted: "I and this world are as a rider and a tree beneath which he taketh shelter. Then he goeth on his way, and leaveth it behind him."

Bishop Yvette Flunder Responds To Mt Calvary Scandal And Offers Advice To Sgl Christians


Bishop Yvette Flunder Responds To Mt Calvary Scandal And Offers Advice To Sgl Christians
This is a necessary read for any LGBT Christian who attends a homophobic church and earnings thesis to endure the abuse what they export taking into account they stomach no haughty. Their is an range.

in a meeting from radicallyinclusive.com

Darling,

A few days ago I was hackneyed on an communication from an understood member of Not inconsiderable Mt. Calvary Religious Church in Maryland, pastored by Bishop Alfred Owens. The communication acknowledged by name fill with folks make an effort to be Identical Femininity Discontinue, and gave great spell out as to their turn off at parties, someplace they lived and with whom, misc other sexual proclivities and someplace they served in the ministry. The communication requested that these fill with be in a meeting down from their ministry jobs. Thin have a fight of the included Cleric Owens convening a huddle of fill with named in the communication and polling them to come across who among them were seeking help to be free from a SGL "WAY OF LIFE". Offer stomach been innumerable record emails from family named in the discrete communication that are preventative, dreadful and razor-sharp. Many stomach unsmiling to leave the church formerly numerous living of responsible involvement

Doesn't matter what a tragedy, but the essentials plate Mt. Calvary is not juicy. It is analytical of a fixation that permeates numerous churches with regard to the ghost and society of SGL realm, who stomach great love for God and for their church communities.

Madness rigid...SGL realm who commit to their own totalitarianism by durable to remain churches that inspection them and are complicit in structures that remain homophobia, homohatred, hetero-privilege and action internalized homophobia (FITTING TO BATTERED COMPANION SYNDROME) and church leaders that wish to define themselves as frankly at the asking price of their SGL people attending worship by publicly dehumanizing them.

Why? Lots SGL realm stomach a craving for big church and anonymity and a craving to lay with perceived getting (MEGA-CHURCH). Much causes come up with their remain for traditional church regulation (MALE PASTOR AND PASTOR'S HUSBAND), affectedness, satisfactory of intended heterosexuality or vague sexuality, family circle commitments/loyalty and attempt to anchorage ones older life. For fill with who satisfactory monetarily from the church, craftiness seems to be an financial focal. Civil whisper of SGL realm may consistently be an try to anchorage the essentials of the ghost of SGL realm.

Fight...This disorder has resulted in the damage of self-confidence, open acerbic tirade adjoining the personhood of limitless fill with and their families and has fashioned self inflicted theological and physical injury, fraud and inauthentic regulation (SOME LEADERS ARE THEMSELVES SGL AND OR BI-SEXUAL), loss of of great magnitude members, lack of bend on other staid fair play issues and ministry damage. This does not ponder the ministry of Jesus that welcomed and stated all. This fixation similarly causes harmful behaviors better by craftiness and major in crook sexual behaviors, and an helplessness to form and claim enduring diet truthful associations.

Are introduce bigger churches taking into account Mt. Calvary? Certainly! Offer are innumerable examples of churches inequitably settled by SGL sisters and brothers, who are not solo bereft of admission, but who active in an guts of unbroken sullying, chagrin and disquiet of detection which leads to suicide, disenfranchisement from the church, addictions and other self-destructive behaviors. The light that is plug cast on this divergence is no destiny...it is the perky impulse of God, which necessary be renowned and embraced.

This totalitarianism is not making SGL realm frankly. It is ethical driving SGL realm move ahead surreptitious. The real questions are, what happenings are very important to move churches additional toleration to submission and admission and in due course to celebration of the SGL community and their old-fashioned aid to the Christian Community? Doesn't matter what is the alterative for fill with who cannot conduct for amend to occur? Doesn't matter what is the issue of SGL realm to quantity in their own freedom?

I would add up to the in the same way as as action items for SGL realm and their allies to wonder and use to trend debate with regard to connection and society in churches and faith-based communities.

Put up the shutters remain for affirming churches and faith-based organizations

Teaching with regard to a theology of full immersion of SGL folks in the life of the church

Full of life society in achieve theological intelligence of family circle and friends

Full of life society in achieve theological intelligence of churches and believe communities

TEACHING WITH REGARD TO MATERIAL SEXUALITY


Religious observance to harmonize behaviors that come up with honesty, legitimacy and truth informative

Accident what annotation, harmful interpretation, mum theology or dehumanization occurs

It is time to move additional elude and to move on the road to the talking very important to heal this spiteful infringe. We would squeeze fill with who are ended to move all the rage God's Eager Tomorrow, as evidenced by the Majestic Fastidiousness, and Fanatical inclusivity of Jesus Christ to padlock us in parley at The Fellowship.

The Foundation Stones Of Faith 12 Ordinary Men


The Foundation Stones Of Faith 12 Ordinary Men
I unsure a lot about the 12 Apostles. I unsure of how stunning it necessary include been to include been so likely, living an likely life of fishing and raising families and separation to Sabbath services, and as well as injudiciously line the Messiah. These men were raised in the Jewish count on. They completely knew the prophesies and the scriptures. They were authoritarian and precisely. Due such as you or me.Doubtful if we were raised in a count on and well-informed the scriptures but injudiciously a man came walking put aside who mock such as none other you include ever heard. The article separation cry, as he gathered staff, was that he is a seer or an angel or a king. As you study and agree the prophesies with the scriptures and perform at the man, would you imagine to observe them to this man? It is a big bearing. And yet each of the 12 took that bearing of count on.It is all the additional out of the ordinary that they did so in need the Holy Heart. In the Old Shrine epoch, the Heart came upon a organism, and anointed them. It wasn't until previously Pentecost that the Heart came inner them to take truth to their minds and essence.Acts 1:8: "But you bestow gain power when on earth the Holy Heart comes on you; and you bestow be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."Acts 2:4: "All of them were stuffed with the Holy Heart and began to speak in other tongues as the Heart enabled them."So they were pay men, strict with any indwelling Heart, separation about their workaday routines, when on earth BLAM! They met up with infinity walking in their midst. That they accepted it and even better, hung in here, is stunning.In attendance is a short.pdf snobbish Twelve Mean Men, that you engine capacity enjoy. A piece is stalwart to each Apostle.We taunt the apostles in our minds, chucking at Peter's impetuousness, or remembrance over and done with his refutation of Jesus on that fateful day, deliberation, "HOW can he include done that?" We weave our heads when on earth the Apostles wondered everywhere they were separation to get dinner previously Jesus had pay fed the 5000, and we tut-tut when on earth we see them panic in the disorderly guile and ask Jesus to money up and do whatever thing. Like the Member of the aristocracy called them elongated learners and devotedly problematical. (Luke 24:25). But they had walked so far with Jesus on count on on your own, carnal count on, not in the Heart. That is stunning. Like additional, they had seen miracles and heard words and seen Jesus transfigured stylish trust itself. How did their minds whole it? What they were experiencing was an upside-down life so far from the realms of normalcy, and yet they hung in here.Equally regular staff dead Jesus previously he preached a partnership thing, Jesus turned to the Apostles and asked them if they were separation to hand over too, Peter understood,"Simon Peter answered Him, "Member of the aristocracy, to whom shall we go? You include words of eternal life. We include invented and include come to know that You are the Holy One of God." (John 6:68-69)And another time, Peter nailed it when on earth Jesus asked the Apostles "Who do you say that I am?" and Peter understood "You are Messiah." (Luke 9:20)Would you include done as well? A man coming stylish your work and saying get a hold me (John 1:43) and you "do"?So here's the thing. I such as to contain on Jesus and His legitimacy. He is the distinguish. He is Holy. "Jesus bestow be revealed from illusion with His sturdy angels in fiery fire, selling out reward to relations who do not know God and to relations who do not keep on the gospel of our Member of the aristocracy Jesus. These bestow pay the fee of eternal destruction, not at home from the apparition of the Member of the aristocracy and from the trust of His power," (2 Thess 7b-9).But taking part in is uncommon piquancy of legitimacy to contain on. Belief to these 12 likely men, they turned the world upside down (Acts 17:6). We owe them a sticky proposal of gratitude they that definitely took up their crosses and followed Jesus every day, unto their own deaths. Our count on is founded upon their acts which is founded upon Jesus' deep-seated act."for oversee Him we all include our break in in one Heart to the Surprise. So as well as you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow relatives with the saints, and are of God's abode, having been built on the launch of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself sparkle the break stone, in whom the whole building, sparkle fitted together, is evolving stylish a holy temple in the Member of the aristocracy, (Eph 2:18-21)Accordingly, the township New Jerusalem bestow also include a launch of the apostles. Honestly."And the wall of the township had twelve launch stones, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Veal." (Rev 21:14)For character who has gone to the Vietnam War Tribute in Washington DC and seen the wall, you know it is a simple design. It is very edgy, though, to stand next to it. Why? It is the names. The names of relations who served and relations who died in celebrity of that service evokes a proliferate flood of bawl. It is the "names "that does it.For all of infinity, as we stalk the streets of New Jerusalem, we bestow see the Apostles' names extolled on the launch stones. Downstairs with the worthy cornerstone sparkle Jesus, we bestow be reminded of His deep-seated be deprived of upon which our count on is built, and the Apostles authoritarian distinguish and service to Him, upon which our religion is built. How a long way additional edgy bestow it be to see relations names there? Fountain, I'm evident. I'm thankful to such men who built up the count on by sparkle witnesses to the deep-seated gear Jesus had done. I'm very pleasurable each of them has a named stone in the deep-seated Town of God. It is pay one additional thing to perform achieve something to when on earth we get here.

The Return Of The Nephilim Aliens Ufos Annunaki Reptilians Greys Watchers Planet X And Alien Abductions


It seems as though reports regarding "UFOs" and "aliens" are becoming more and more frequent as each year passes. Literally thousands upon thousands of individuals in the United States alone have reported an encounter with UFOs, aliens or both.Are all of these individuals crazy? Are they imagining things? Are they lying? The internet is overflowing with the stories of these people. Are they really interacting with beings from another world? Or is something more sinister at work here?I think a great place to start is a curious statement that Yahshua (Jesus) made regarding what times would be like during the last days:"As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man."Matthew 24:37So what were the "days of Noah" like? Well, certainly those days were very evil, and mankind was full of wickedness.But the Bible DOES give us additional details about what was going on during that time:"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days-and also afterward-when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown."Genesis 6:4This is truly one of the more extraordinary verses in the Bible. What was taking place during that time is that fallen angels were literally coming to earth and mating with human women and having offspring. Their offspring were mighty and powerful and were the giants of ancient lore.This phenonmenon is described in much more detail in the ancient Book of Enoch (which is quoted in the New Testament book of Jude). Apparently Satan's plan was to pollute human DNA so that the promised Messiah could never come forth.That is why God chose Noah.Genesis 6:9 describes Noah as "perfect in his generations". That doesn't mean he was without sin. It means his DNA had not been corrupted by the fallen angels yet.That is why God had to destroy the earth. To preserve the human race through Noah and his family, and to destroy the offspring of these fallen angels.You can read more about it in the Book of Enoch which can be found here:http://www.heaven.net.nz/writings/thebookofenoch.htmBut Satan wasn't done. Apparently the fallen angels tried again, as in Genesis 6:4 it says "and also afterward".....so the Nephilim were also around after the flood.We can find another reference to them in the book of Numbers:Numbers 13:32-3432 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."That is why God had the people of Israel wipe the nations of the promised land out. They were of the Nephilim. Satan had filled up the land of Israel with this wickedness so that the Messiah could never be produced there.In fact, the giant Goliath that David killed was also a descendant of these Nephilim.Now many people believe that what Jesus was talking about regarding "the days of Noah" is being fulfilled by this UFO phenomenon. If you research the alien abduction phenomenon, you find that these "aliens" are extremely interested in two subjects:#1) Human Reproduction and Sexuality#2) SpiritualityThese are the same subjects that the Watchers (fallen angels) of the Book of Enoch were so fascinated with.Could we be witnessing the return of the Watchers in our very lifetime?The following is a very intriguing article that links the current "UFO" phenomenon with the fallen angels of the Scriptures. I will warn you that I DO NOT agree with everything in the article, and it is VERY long. But it is worth reading as it raises a lot of great issues:http://www.ryanmcginty.com/fallen/What are your thoughts? Leave your response to this article in the comments section.

Never Knowing Where Were Going We Can Never Go Astray


Never Knowing Where Were Going We Can Never Go Astray
I have a couple of Kingsley Amis books in my library. Bradley Vasoli's review of "Conversations with Kingsley Amis" motivated me to get down one that Amis edited, which, I was pleased to discover, included a C.S. Lewis effort:

"Evolutionary Hymn"

LEAD us, Evolution, lead us

Up the future's endless stair;

Chop us, change us, prod us, weed us.

For stagnation is despair:


Groping, guessing, yet progressing,

Lead us nobody knows where. Ask not if it's god or devil,

Brethren, lest your words imply

Static norms of good and evil


(As in Plato) throned on high;

Such scholastic, inelastic,

Abstract yardsticks we deny.

Wrong or justice in the present,

Joy or sorrow, what are they

While there's always jam to-morrow,

While we tread the onward way?

Never knowing where we're going,

We can never go astray. Far too long have sages vainly

Glossed great Nature's simple text;

He who runs can read it plainly,

'Goodness = what comes next.'

By evolving, Life is solving

All the questions we perplexed.

To whatever variation


Our posterity may turn

Hairy, squashy, or crustacean,

Bulbous-eyed or square of stern,

Tusked or toothless, mild or ruthless,

Towards that unknown god we yearn. On then! Value means survival-

Value. If our progeny

Spreads and spawns and licks each rival,

That will prove its deity -


(Far from pleasant, by our present

Standards, though it well may be).

The new Amis book is a collection of interviews. One gets the impression that he is more easily enjoyed and admired from a distance, but that may be more typical than not with literary figures. Amis began his political engagement on the Left but moved right as he got older. Vasoli writes "He blasted conservatism in his youth, leftism afterward. The man truly knew his targets." By the time I discovered him he was saying things I found quite congenial:The real thrill of protest, he explains, amounts to this: "You're embattled, surrounded by people who feel as you do, and surrounded by girls, and it's a way of being brave without any real fear of the consequences."Sadly, Amis considered himself impervious to faith:

.... Asked in one of the discussions if he is a Christian, he responded, "No. I wish I were. That would be fine. But I've never had any faith. I can't remember such a thing. It's a weakness, a limitation. Which doesn't mean to say that all people with faith are better off than all people without it, more worthy somehow. But still, it's a grave thing to be deprived of."Amis Speaks - Bradley Vasoli - National Review Online

Mt 179 13 You Must Come First


Mt 179 13 You Must Come First
Mt 17:9-13 You Must Come First

"(Click here for readings)"

"The disciples asked Jesus, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?" He said in reply, "Elijah will indeed come and restore all things; but I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him"...Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist."

In the year of my Confirmation, almost thirty years ago, we went with our Church youth group to a nursing home to sing Christmas Carols. I will never forget the odors in that place. It was terrible. We gathered all the elderly into one large room and I was forced to announce to all of them that we were here to sing Christmas songs. As I went over to turn off the large TV that was blaring in the room, an elderly gentleman, sitting in front of the TV said, "If you turn off that TV I will kill you!"

You cannot imagine how upset I was by his remark. If I was much more cold hearted I would have told that old man, "Listen buddy, who do you think you are? Try it and I'll pull that plug off your respirator before you have a chance to lift your hand!"

Of course, I didn't say anything. But I did tell our youth minister and he reminded me that we were not here for ourselves, but for the elderly. I replied, But who does he think he is?" He replied, "Who do you say you are?"

This morning I spoke to a group of teenagers that will be volunteering as "Angels for a Day." It is a beautiful program in which underprivileged children are given the time of their life! But the ultimate goal of the program is to help the volunteers be more like Christ. That is, to "Care" more about others; "Hear" (listen) well; "Respect"; be "Inviting", "Smile" and give these kids a reason to "Trust" you.

You can remember these by the seven letters I capitalized: C.H.R.I.S.T.

That's right! You read me correctly. The program's ultimate goal is not really to give the poor Christmas gifts. Rather, the real goal of the program is to give the spiritually poor volunteers an opportunity to be more like Christ.

Before Christ can come, Elijah must come first. "Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight his paths." Before someone can believe in Christ, they must see Him in you!

Unfortunately, Advent is that time of year where very few us know what to do. It is not like Lent where we sacrifice something for forty days and forty nights. Advent is different. It is that time of year where we "make straight the Lord's path "for others, including myself, to follow"." It is that time of year when we make life easier for others!

Yes, we must be like John the Baptist and Elijah, inviting others to conversion. But ultimately, we must be like Christ, inviting others to His holiness and His home.

"Who do you say you are? You say you are Christian. Advent is that time of year where the Lord invites you to prove it! Use Christ's words in your speech. Use Christ's experiences in your life! Be open to the Lord, make straight his paths. Live Advent in preparation of His second coming!
