NOAH'S ARK FOUND?

Hello again folks! Amidst all the hype of the General Election here in the UK [apparently there are only three [so-called] 'main' political parties to choose from]; I have been alerted to a very interesting piece of breaking news from Turkey, by several sources. So; to quote ITN News:

"A group of evangelical researchers CLAIM they have found the remains of Noah's Ark thousands of feet up Mount Ararat, its biblical resting place, in Turkey. The exact location of the find has not been disclosed, but carbon dating conducted on wood and stone from the site has revealed their age as 4,800 years old, according to the scientists. Further tests will be conducted on the items but one researcher claimed they were "99.9 per cent sure" the remains were that of the original Ark. According to the Old Testament story, God commanded Noah to build the Ark to save his family and the world's animals from a global flood - sent to rid the earth of mankind's corrupt behaviour."
[end quote]


In this so-called world of 'free thinking' that accepts a THEORY called evolution but calls any other origins 'story' as only a story; this piece of news - hidden out on the periphery [as would be expected] - is evidence that demands a verdict. The evidence of the veracity of the Bible and the vindication of those folks who only seek to use the same evidence as evolutionists but to prove the Creation account is here - and always was - whether or not these "claims" turn out to be true. Why not check out John Chingford's excellent and helpful comment below folks! "Seek and ye shall find" is the Word that comes to mind here!

That there are millions of dead things buried in rock layers all over the world is undeniable. But that it is evidence of that Noadhic global flood and not of long ages must now be considered. But fallen man and fallen 'scientists' are a stubborn bunch. Most likely they will ignore this discovery and wait for another [so-called] astounding discovery to fit their theory and world view. They will likely not accept anything else. "Pride comes before a fall" and Romans 1:22 is more of the Word that comes to mind here!!

I've a shock for all those experts out there. Adam; Eve; Cain; Abel; Seth; Noah et al were all indeed REAL people who REALLY existed in REAL time. Christians and churchians who squeeze and inject the theories of fallen man into the Bible instead of vice versa should all take note and check out the difference between Exegesis and Eisegesis me thinx.

Gap theory? More like Crap theory! 

We can trust the Bible from the foundation of the Book of Genesis. Jesus quoted from it an awful lot! The theories of man shift about like sinking sand. One minute it's global cooling and then it's global warming; One minute 'Piltdown Man' is the [so-called] 'missing link' then it's Cliff! But seriously folks ... keep your eyes on this story. It could be the story they don't want the masses to hear. But what an opportunity to witness eh?

Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

NETANYAHU AT HIS BEST!

Hello again folks! Jerry Golden has put this piece out today and I think it is worthwhile your perusal. Call it balancing out the bias against Israel ......... I think this is gooooood!:

"Even those who aren't particularly sympathetic to Benjamin Netanyahu could get a good measure of satisfaction from this interview with British Television during the retaliation against Hamas' shelling of Israel .
The interviewer asked him: "How come so many more Palestinians have been killed in this conflict than Israelis?" [a nasty question if there ever was one]
Netanyahu: "Are you sure that you want to start asking in that direction?

Interviewer: [falling into the trap] Why not?

Netanyahu: "Because in World War II more Germans were killed than British and Americans combined, but there is no doubt in anyone's mind that the war was caused by Germany 's aggression. And in response to the German blitz on London, the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden, burning to death more German civilians than the number of people killed in Hiroshima ... Moreover, I could remind you that in 1944, when the RAF tried to bomb the Gestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen, some of the bombs missed their target and fell on a Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children. Perhaps you have another question?"
Apparently, Benjamin Netanyahu gave another interview and was asked about Israel 's occupation of Arab lands. His response was: "It's our land". The reporter [CNN or the like] was stunned - read below - "It's our land!". It is important information since we don't get fair and accurate reporting from the media and facts tend to get lost in the jumble of daily events.

"Crash Course on the Arab-Israeli Conflict"
Here are overlooked facts in the current & past Middle East situation. These were compiled by a Christian university professor. It makes sense and it's not slanted. Jew and non-Jew; it doesn't matter.

BRIEF FACTS ON THE ISRAELI CONFLICT TODAY [it takes just 90 seconds to read!]

  1. Nationhood and Jerusalem: Israel became a nation in 1312 BC, two thousand [2,000] years before the rise of Islam.

  2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

  3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BC, the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand [1,000] years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

  4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 lasted no more than 22 years.

  5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. [KJS: under the Ottoman empire; up to 1917; Damascus was the local "capital"]. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem , they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

  6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned even once in the Koran.

  7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

  8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

  9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: in 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. 68% left [many in fear of retaliation by their own brethren, the Arabs], without ever seeing an Israeli soldier. The ones who stayed were afforded the same peace, civility and citizenship rights as everyone else.

  10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.

  11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

  12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people's lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.

  13. The Arab-Israeli Conflict: the Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.

  14. The PLO's Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.

  15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.

  16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.

  17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.

  18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.

  19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.

  20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall." [end quote]

WHY DOES THIS MESSAGE ALWAYS HAVE TO BE?

Hello again folks! As I mentioned in my earlier blog ... today I've been listening to ABC's 1983 album: "Beauty Stab". Besides ELO Part II's "Honest Men"; there is another track on this album that should have been much more successful as a single. But this song always [for some reason] always pulls at my heartstrings and resonates with me deeply. Particularly one line in that said song:

"Why does this message always have to be ... S.O.S. ..."

This song only managed to achieve #39 here in the U.K back in November 1983. But more importantly; there is just something within these lyrics that is an eternal truth. I think the best way that I can put it is this.

This message has to be there telling God that we are in trouble without Him and that we can do nothing to save ourselves. It has to be: "Save Our Souls" literally. We are fallen; we have God's wrath lingering over our heads and only He can deliver us. That is why these words [to this writer] are so simple yet so powerful! You can listen to the song via either of these two [2] links to YouTube [if you so wish]:


Time is short. S.O.S. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

ABBREVIATED ACTUALLY

Hello again folks! I was listening to ABC's 1983 album: "Beauty Stab" in the car this morning on my way to work and I got to thinking ["Oh no!" - I hear you say!]. Did you know that KJS used to be [and still is occasionally] known as: "DJKJ"? If you consider the fact that I like the music of both ELO and ABC and I'm now standing for UKIP in the upcoming election; I just wonder why I'm so drawn to all these anacronyms? INITIALLY it seemed so natural! TTFN ... next blog TBC ASAP!!!

THE DEMOGRAPHIC TIMEBOMB [2]

Hello again folks! Please take a look at this interesting video presentation that my good friend Pete Nuttall has forwarded on to me for my perusal:


I've stated a couple of times a reported statistic that Germany will be majority muslim by 2040 so the above video makes for interesting watching and listening. It makes you wonder whether end-time 'experts' have got their timeline wrong.

What if the EU morphs into an islamic Beast empire which follows a "god of fortresses"? What if the tribulation is still a generation away? What if the antichrist is the Madhi and is therefore a muslim? That would give us plenty of time for WWIII; Israel to be sucked into a 'covenant of Sheol'; for the USA to decline; the Kings of the East to rise; for technology to grow exponentially to the absolute worldwide coverage and accuracy that the 'mark of the Beast' must needs be to be so totalitarian et al.

I am not going down the II Peter 3:4 route folks either ... but I am suggesting that there may be a few shocks in store prophetically speaking. We know the the framework but not the fine detail. Interesting days eh? Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

EU MUST BE JOKING!

Hello again folks! In the calendar year 2009 the UK recorded a general government deficit of £159.2 billion, which was equivalent to 11.4 per cent of gross domestic product [GDP]. At the end of December 2009 general government debt was £950.4 billion, equivalent to 68.1% GDP:


Lord Pearson [UKIP Leader] today cited the Taxpayers Alliance in an interview on BBC News 24 that we pay the EU £45 million a day for our membership. Apparently; this equates to £118 billion a year when EU policies and regulations are taken into account [see above links]. That is nearly £2,000 per man, woman and child. Taking aside the politics; if we have such a huge national budget deficit which - with interest - is mushrooming daily, where is the logic with remaining in the EU?

Apart from the biblical worldview that I espouse w.r.t. the forthcoming Beast empire et al; this is one of the reasons that UKIP is right on the nail for Christians - in my personal opinion. Unnecessary debt is unbiblical on a personal and national basis - also in my opinion!

ISRAEL: DEFYING THE ODDS

Hello again folks! Here is another wonderful YouTube presentation citing the uniqueness; the fruitfulness and the resiliance of Israel and ALL of her citizens despite everything and anything that is thrown against her on an almost hourly basis:


As Jerry Golden has correctly commented; you won't see this side of the story on any of the mass media channels so it is another opportunity to gain information and knowledge and stand by Heretz Israel. Like I said before; Israel makes mistakes but this small country is a needle in a haystack holding back the hoardes of her enemies - some of whom even profess to be her friends!

I AM ISRAEL

Hello again folks! Blog #500! Let's be clear. Israel is not perfect and makes mistakes. And who doesn't except Cliff? But; amidst all the media bias and political bias and religious bias against Israel plus the general across-the-board favouritism offered to her neighbours and erstwhile enemies; I think the attached short YouTube presentation should be considered as a counterweight:


Once again; I am indebted to Jerry Golden for making me aware of this interesting and stimulating documentary. There are indeed two [2] sides to every story - even in Israel. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

TREMOR TALL TALE

Hello again folks! If you ever wanted proof re: the [so-called] infallibility of the doctrines of islam from either the koran; the hadith or spoken tradition[s]; then this article that I read today on the BBC News web-site is something to be investigated:


Apparently; an Iranian [islamic] cleric named Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi preached at  a mosque in Tehran on Friday last that women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes. I honestly; at the time of writing; do not have anything to add to this statement of the gentleman in question save only how deceived [and fearful] his listeners must be to receive and act upon his 'message'. But seriously ... the True Gospel is needed as much in Iran as it is backslidden Britain folks.

RECENT PROPHECY: LANCE LAMBERT [18/04/10]

Hello again folks! Joanna Livermore has sent me this interesting prophecy as related by Lance Lambert on Sunday 18-April-2010.

These words should be taken very seriously ... Lance Lambert is a sound man of God to this writer. 

As an aside; I would advise caution w.r.t. anything related to the International Christian Embassy [to whom this prophecy was being forwarded onto via an emailing list when it was passed to moi]. Personally; I am not for ecumenism or for doing deals with temporal authorities when it comes to evangelizing souls. But to clarify: I consider neither ministry "heretical". FYI: "HERESY WATCH" is the name I originally chose for this 'ol blog back in 2008; but I cover all manner of subjects!

And ... as with ALL prophecies ... testing by the Word is required as is patience looking toward fulfillment:

"Do not fear neither be dismayed for that which is coming upon the face of the earth, for I am with you, says The Lord. Nevertheless I have a serious controversy with the nations. They are seeking to divide My Land says The Lord, the land that I covenanted to give to Abraham and to his seed after him through Isaac and Jacob, as an everlasting inheritance. This I will not allow without devastating judgment upon those nations who pursue this plan. I have arisen with intense and furious anger and will not back down until I have destroyed their well being. I will cause their economies to fail, and their financial system to break down, and even the climate to fail them! I will turn them upside down and inside out and they will not know what has hit them, whether they be super powers or not. For I am the only One, the Almighty God and besides me there is none to compare.

Do they believe that in their arrogance they can contradict and nullify covenants that I the Almighty have made? Do they believe that they can change what has gone forth from My mouth with impunity? It is My Word and My decree that has gone forth concerning the seed of Abraham. It will not be changed by man. I and I alone am Almighty. Do not fear!

For this reason a new and a far more serious phase of judgment is commencing. Do not fear, it is I who is shaking all things. Remember that in Me you have peace but in the world tribulation. Trust Me! I am shaking all things so that which cannot be shaken may remain. When all your circumstances become abnormal, discover in Me your peace, your rest and your fulfillment.

In this phase the old and powerful nations will become as if they are third world countries, super powers will no longer be super powers but countries such as India and China will arise to take their place. A great company of the redeemed will come out of these two countries. In all this change, do not fear.

I know your weakness and your tendency to fear, but do not be dismayed at these things. In the midst of all this shaking, this turmoil and strife, there are two peoples that lie at it's heart, the true and living church and Israel. I will use these matters, these events, to purify one and to save the other! Do not fear, above the storms, the shaking, and the conflict, I am the Everlasting and Almighty One. In Me you cannot be shaken, you can only lose what is not worth holding!" [end quote]

I thought it of interest for you guys to read the above words and consider them prayerfully. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

WEEKEND WANDERINGS

Hello again folks! What a wonderful weekend of weather! Here are two [2] photographs that perfectly summarize my activities in the last few days.

Between Thursday 15th and Saturday 17th April; we were down near South Croydon and Bromley celebrating the very special wedding of Andrew and Joanna McArthur; travelling between the hotel/venue and the church [on time!] on an old London double-decker bus all decked out with wedding trim!

And yesterday afternoon; it was time to start the campaigning work as I stand for UKIP in the local Wolverhampton City Council elections on Thursday 6th May 2010 in the Oxley ward. Things are going to get a little hectic for the rest of this month and in early May! So please be patient with me! Did you know that weddings and election campaigns always open the door for a spot of witnessing?

CALLING ALL HONEST MEN [5]

Hello again folks! Once again this morning on the way to work I had a good 'ol listen to Eric Troyer's gentastic composition: "Honest Men" as performed by Electric Light Orchestra Part II back in 1991:

"... Where did all the heroes go? We've had our fill of this gallery of scoundrels, The leaders of the world, Those power hungry liars, Rise up and sound the sirens, Send out the searching parties, All we need is a few good men ......... Throw out the tyrants, Those aged fat cats, Outlived their usefulness, They have led us to this mess, Make them answer, Hold them to their promises, And throw them in the street, If they won't tell the truth ..." [end quote]

What struck me was the various topics covered in the song - especially these lyrics that I've cited above. The reason I say this is that with the General Election upcoming and the huge debt our nation is carrying as a result of the [so-called] "credit crunch"; these words are indeed more relevant today than they were 19 years ago [was it really that long ago???]

Our Parliament is a gallery of scoundrels; our leaders are power hungry liars [especially when seeking re-election - remember the Labour 2005 election 'promise' to hold a referendum on the EU constitution a.k.a. Lisbon Treaty for example?]; they have indeed led us to this [financial et al] mess and ordinary folks/voters [whoever they fell led to vote for] should indeed hold them to their promises if they will not tell the truth. You know where I stand with my politics hence there is no need for me to re-state that!

I do believe that it is a noble and good thing to be able to vote and a tragedy if folks don't. The days are coming when the word 'vote' will mean something entirely different in the forthcoming 'Beast' empire - much as the the word "gay" [for example] has changed meaning in the last forty [40] years. By the way - debates and voting in the EU pariliament currently constitute a ninety [90] second light flashing 'aye' or 'nay' session.

So vote for who you feel led to vote for. But please don't NOT vote. And hold your leaders; your MP's and MEP's to account for their promises. Calling all honest men [and women]! By the way - if you would like to hear "Honest Men" for your good selves; you can visit my ELO BEATLES FOREVER YouTube site here:

IS IT ME?

Hello again folks! One of my oft repeated phrases is this: "Not all conspiracies are theories!" It crossed my mind today to again think of this scripture:

"I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."
[Daniel 7:8; KJV]

I then considered the recent events in Greece and Poland. Two members of the EU going through different kinds of pain. One is financial national tragedy and the other is political as a result of a national tragedy. The Greece issue may have been underpinned by a kind of testing of the resolve of the EU masters w.r.t. the Euro by 'speculators'. And the tragic crash in Western Russia of the plane that killed 96 souls including most of the key Polish governmental establishment was apparently not due to pilot error; as was first thought.

I am not saying that both or either of them are the fruit of a NWO/Illuminati 'conspiracy' but here we see two [2] EU superstate members undergoing a great deal of pressure. Is it me or could this be the kind of or sort of event[s] that Daniel MAY have been speaking of? I think; as with all things; it is worth considering. Fallen man is well capable of plotting financial collapses and aeroplane crashes quite easily. Think on Black Monday or 9/11. Maybe those 'little horns' are being loosened like unto teeth before they are pulled? Who Knows? God does - that's for sure. Keep watching that periphery folks!

HELLO HELLO

Hello again folks! I've been driving around the last few weeks listening to ELO Part II's eponymously titled first album from 1991. Apart from the much under-rated Eric Troyer classic track: "Honest Men" - I just love the 1:15 long ditty at the beginning of the album entitled: "Hello Hello" and co-written by Bev Bevan; Neil Lockwood; Pete Haycock and Eric Troyer. The lyrics are jolly and uplifting:

"Hello, Hello, it's great to see you once again,
It's been so long,
We were such friends,
A long long time ago.

Hello, Hello, your smiling face,
Your warm embrace,
We've been apart for far too long,
It felt so wrong.

Nice to know, you're coming over
Nice to know, the wait is over.

Hello, Hello, is that a smile on your face
Here's a kiss, Just in case,
This one's for you,

Hello, Hello, it's great to see you once again
It's been so long,
We were such friends,
A long long time ago."
[end quote]

This little song reminds me of the value of friendship; the importance of reacquainting ourselves with old friends and how we often forget to thank God for the most obvious things in life. When is the time you or I actually, genuinely, in a heartfelt manner - greeted someone? Sometimes we miss the little things that mean so much eh?

A SAD DAY INDEED [2]

Hello again folks! If there's one thing that is worth saying today it is this: You just never know just what is around the corner. This morning; a man arose; got ready and set off with his wife for Warsaw airport with the intention of flying to Smolensk airport to commemorate and remember the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre of thousands of Poles by Soviet forces during WWII. It was already a solemn day and now it is even more tragic for the good people of Poland. A far proportion of their government has gone and already new elections have been called for. It is indeed THE saddest day for Poland since World War II:


But; for me; it is a tragedy that occurs every minute of every day of every week of every month of every year. Folks die and pass into eternity. This morning the Polish President was doubtless writing or rehearsing his speech or revising the steps of the political protocol that he must follow. He  was probably not thinking for one minute that it was the last day of his life. Only God knows His own. I know not the condition of Lech Kaczynski's soul nor that of his wife Maria or the other eighty [80] people who lost their lives this morning.

But the one thing that these kind of events bring to mind is this: How close all of us are to the exit sign. The beauty of True Salvation is that it is a God-given gift that we cannot earn and that God is no respecter of persons. This tragedy should remind all believing folks that there is not a day that passes that the True Gospel should not be proclaimed. A double negative is a positive by the way!!! Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

BEHIND THE MASK

Hello again folks! I see that those 'peace loving palestinians' are at it again.These guys talk to the West; the Quartet et al; in their languages seemingly seeking an end to the 'conflict'. Every Israeli [so-called] 'act of aggression' is used as propaganda and every drop of pressure is applied towards the [so-called] 'Two-State Solution'. But in their mosques; in Arabic; on the streets; the real campaign [underpinned by islamic doctrine of course] of destroying Israel and her non-Arab population [i.e. non-islamic] continues unabated and - strangely enough - with no international condemnation of their aggression or multiple mortar attacks into Southern Israel. And to ably demonstrate this; please read this article from: "Israel Today" and the quotation below from: "One Jerusalem" today:


"Just yesterday, a street next to a Presidential compound in Ramallah was renamed in honor of Yehiye Ayash, Hamas' arch terrorist and chief bomb maker, whose advanced techniques of suicide bombing led to the murder and maiming of hundreds of innocent Israelis on buses and in bus depots throughout the State of Israel. With the Obama Administration's overreaction to Israel building more apartments in an established neighborhood in Jerusalem, one would expect the Administration to condemn the Palestinians for continuing to glorify terrorists. Shockingly, the Administration has done no such thing. To make matters worse, Vice President Biden specifically asked Abbas not to hold such a ceremony when Biden was visiting Israel. "This is an outrageous glorification of terrorism by the Palestinian Authority," read a statement from the Prime Minister's Office released late Wednesday night. "Right next to a presidential compound in Ramallah, the Palestinian Authority has named a street after a terrorist who murdered hundreds of innocent Israeli men, women and children. The world must forcefully condemn this official Palestinian incitement for terrorism and against peace." The Obama Administration's silence speaks volumes." [end quote]

Here is yet another example of out-and-out anti-Israeli bias to appease the islamic Arab oil/gas bloc. And it is another example of the true intentions of America's first black muslim President: Mubarack Hussein Obama. It also displays the pressure that this tiny Jewish state - which occupies just 1% of the Arab land mass - endures daily. Israel bashing season is in vogue again [as if it never were!] and the Western succession to the burgeoning islamic caliphate continues. With the General Election being called here in the UK this week; make sure you watch the periphery all the more - especially when it concerns Israel and, specifically, Jerusalem. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

SINK OR SWIM?

Hello again folks! Here is my promised short/tall story. Enjoy:

Three men were standing on the coast of a volcanic island. The lava flow was approaching; slowly and steadily; and their only hope was to swim across to safety on the neighbouring island. The first man jumped off the cliff and began swimming but sadly drowned a quarter of the way across the strait.

The second man then jumped and managed to swim halfway across the strait but he too sadly drowned. The third man resolved to pace himself and jumped. He managed to swim three quarters of the distance before he drowned in absolute exhaustion. So sad. Suddenly; a fourth man arrived at the cliff face and dived into the channel. He swam; crawled and did everything he could to stay afloat. then - in a cry of desperation - he shouted; "HELP!" at the top of his voice for as long as he had the energy to do so. A Jewish guy then miraculously appeared in a dinghy and proceeded to throw him a lifeline before hauling the drenched man abroad before taking him to safety.

The fourth man was told that his three friends had all died trying to traverse the channel and reach safety on their own merits. The man who managed to get 25% of the distance shared the same fate as the other two who managed to get 50% and 75% across respectively. They never managed to successfully attain the 100% distance. The man who managed three quarters of the distance was no better off than the man who only reached the quarter mark. So sad.

The fourth man asked the Jewish guy: "Why didn't you save them?" He answered: "They were too busy struggling in their own strength to call out for help." You see; the fourth man was just as hopeless as the other three but he realized his hopeless situation and acknowledged his need and that he couldn't save himself.

So it is with True salvation my friends.You can be 99% good; 1% bad or vice versa. You will never be 100% and therefore out of fellowship with your Maker for eternity. You will always fall short because of your sin and your sins. Your only Hope is to ask the LORD Jesus Christ to save you. Period. No need to struggle and sweat. Just ask Him to save you and cover your sins [be your personal 'atonement' for your sins]. His blood will then render you 100%. In other words - good enough for God; heaven and eternity. Not due to your efforts but solely due to His Gift and His effort and His Person. Period. Sink or swim? It's your choice!

Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

TERRIBLE LIZARD DISCOVERED!

Hello again folks! I know I said in my last posting that I had a story to tell you 'next' blog; but today I read something that I wish to comment upon with immediate effect!

And that is the news reported this last week that a new two [2] metre long species of giant lizard has been discovered in the Philippines:


Now; as someone who is 6' 4" [1.93 metres] long himself; this particular reptile appears to be a big 'un! Did you know that the word 'dinosaur' - as coined by Richard Owen in 1841 - actually means 'terrible lizard'? I know I'd be terrified if a seven [7] foot long lizard came my way at a fair old speed!!! What I am saying is this.

Here we have [another] example of a 'living fossil' - a creature that would be - if discovered as a fossil - be termed as a 'dinosaur'. Besides other poorly reported discoveries that include T Rex bones in North America still with inherent red blood cells and hence being much less than 70 million years old anyway [no surprises there] and that famous 're-discovery' of the Coelacanth last century; if one takes a step back and acknowledges the fact that this massive reptile discovery is a real; 'modern day' dinosaur then the only conclusion that can be drawn is that the accepted scientific long view is wrong. That evolutionary THEORY needs re-examining as a THEORY and that Creationism and Intelligent Design are valid alternative accounts of our origins - not 'religiously' but scientifically.

It truly amazes me that after forty [40] years of those other living dinosaurs Status Quo and over fifty [50] years of Cliff Richard; that you folks have missed this new discovery!! Stick to the Bible; don't force man-made theories into it or extract half-truths from it. God and all He has told us and given us is all we really need anyway!

Call it simple faith or call it standing on solid rock - that's the only datum we need to base our lives on here on Terra Firma. Now; I do hereby promise faithfully to relate that  short/tall story NEXT blog! Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

THE REAL DEAL!

Hello again folks! Anyone who truly knows me knows that I'm not one for the religious these days. Most years; 'Easter' is not even in the same month or week as Passover anyway. As with Christmas; both of these major 'Christian' events are based on pagan practices anyway. We can thank Constantine and the RCC for that! My personal belief is that Jesus was really born about the Feast of Tabernacles and [of course] He died as our Passover Lamb at ... the Passover!

However; to paraphrase the Apostle Paul: if you want to keep Sabbath on a Saturday or a Sunday ... do it as unto the LORD. If you choose to keep Easter as it is ... do it as unto the LORD.

The only thing I will say is that if you apply the true Jewish roots of Christianity and you see Messiah in ALL the ordinances - you would indeed be doubly blessed.

There are an awful lot of folks out there who delight in or delight in trying to put folks back under the Law - the letter if you will. On the other hand; being under Grace is not a licence to error. I propose that you find your shalom peace with God on how you remember and celebrate His birth; death and - most importantly - His Resurrection.

At the end of the day; that is THE REAL DEAL; what it is really all about anyway. Not ceremonies for the sake of ceremonies; not religious duty; not trying to climb up to God with good deeds or 'inner peace' or 'self discovery'. But to acknowledge that He came down to us because we can't do one jot or tittle to earn salvation or even curry favour with Him. That's the first step to eternal life. Next blog; I'll tell you another one of my short 'stories' to demonstrate this ... even though I'm 6' 4" tall! Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
