“There is no such thing as ‘a happy pluralism,’ just so you know!”©


, , ,

With the current fascination with the Pope… being in the US

and in a spirited showing of openness to all,

hear the call of a man who would alter the very definition of

a church, claiming to be universal by call…

yet declaring,”All religions are true, because they are true in

the hearts of all those who believe in them.”

I’m getting teary eyed here, this speech so accepting of any

other, even a devout pluralism… happy poem

but did he really say this or not, the statement being attributed

to the third Vatican council, this is not the case…

there has been a synod but not a formal calling to be held as

the Council of Nicaea, theology is not a race¹…

theology of ‘Redemption’ is different between the religions, even

more between the Abrahamic beliefs we know,

there is no commonality here… thought to be the same thing but

it is not here to find, look and it will not show

the same understanding… same convictions to share or be seen,

hence the need for injunctions by misuse,

the legality and ineffectiveness of thinking, even coming from the

purview of the Saudi Gazette, or its use,

to cover Pope Francis amiably but when a top Islamic cleric calls for

the release of innocents abducted, recently,

is not to see any comparisons with the Americans in Iranian prison

innocent of the charge(s) levied, signs of clemency

here would be signs of reaching for a display of ‘interfaith trust’ to

be reached for and met… in a positive light,

the growth of all involved, from: Iraq, Iran, the Vatican, Christians

around the world caught in persecution’s plight,

if pluralism was indeed the goal… then peace should be attainable,

not as tenuous as actions or even heard

when it comes to the obvious disparity of treatment ‘beyond the pail’

of what UN declares to us with faith by word…

the UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights²) does spell out

we should be able to believe what we will, free,

but pluralism is ‘the action of forcing one to believe equality is God,’

and not ‘God is accessible to all,’ equality to me.

[The abstract below is taken from Pope Francis and the words he said to the US Congress, Washington D.C., Sep. 24th, 2015]

  Our world is increasingly a place of violent conflict, hatred and brutal atrocities, committed even in the name of God and of religion. We know that no religion is immune from forms of individual delusion or ideological extremism. This means that we must be especially attentive to every type of fundamentalism, whether religious or of any other kind.

[The abstract below is taken from Pope Francis’s Address of Jordanian authorities in Amman, May 24th, 2014]

Although Christians today are numerically a minority, theirs is a significant and valued presence in the fields of education and health care, thanks to their schools and hospitals. They are able to profess their faith peaceably, in a climate of respect for religious freedom. Religious freedom is in fact a fundamental human right and I cannot fail to express my hope that it will be upheld throughout the Middle East and the entire world. The right to religious freedom “includes on the individual and collective levels the freedom to follow one’s conscience in religious matters and, at the same time, freedom of worship… [it also includes] the freedom to choose the religion which one judges to be true and to manifest one’s beliefs in public” (Ecclesia in Medio Oriente, 26).

To complicate these ‘religious issues’ is our complicit political actions, here and abroad, that do: aid the enemy, gain support against us [The US] and would allow our educational system to: endorse, promote and encourage Islamic teaching in our schools.

According to information from Tony Blair’s Faith Foundation [initially helped to start by UN aid], extremists from all religions are the problem… not the view of global supremacy.

According to the Pew Research Center...

According to the Pew Research Center…

1)… except to understand there will come ‘the end of days,’ when man’s time will (literally) come to an end. The eschatology of two of the Abrahamic monotheistic religions are in agreement… one is different than the other two. One leads to global supremacy under man’s hand… and is the goal of its followers.

The abstract below is an excerpt taken from this article… that we might fully understand the times we are living in- the days swiftly approaching!

[The Bible: The Antichrist is an unparalleled political, military and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.

Islam: The Mahdi is an unparalleled political, military and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.

The Bible: The False Prophet is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days who will support the Antichrist.

Islam: The Muslim Jesus is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days to support the Mahdi.]

2)… Please note Iran did sign the UDHR, and since it is a theocracy… a primary representative of what it is to be and understand Islam from, either contractual agreements should be honored or we are left to be the fools they think we are.

“There is a world of difference between ‘the Bride’ and ‘the Elect’… to see”©


, , , , ,

There are two separate entities when it comes to known

bodies (of people), ‘the Bride’ and ‘the elect,’

one affects those grafted into the vine and the other is

referring to God’s own people, Israel, so direct,

there is a distinct difference between these two, both

shall be recognized by God Himself, be correct…

for He shall give the vineyard to others.

‘The Bride’ is the church… those that believe without see-

ing what the people of Israel saw with their eyes,

those that have heard but not seen the things made

manifest, that have read and believed, no surprise,

with God’s own He came as a lowly servant, a simple

prophet… of the living God, He came in flesh disguise…

for He shall give the vineyard to others.

‘The elect’ are those people He will give back as new

from the old… the last remnant, Messianic and believe,

they are those of the nation of Israel, keeping of His

promise… the Covenant of God, promising to retrieve,

to see them stand and deliver the commandments of

old, as He is their God and by their faith they’ll receive…

for He shall give the vineyard to others.

The Bride… the church, the body of Christ on this Earth will continue to grow- the telling of the Gospel (the Good News) ensures this to be a fact. The Gospel message is shared by ‘the Bride’ and the invitation to the wedding will be ‘sound reason’ to believe this. While on the other hand, ‘the elect’ will be a set number (those who are sealed), one hundred and forty four thousand.

Rev 7:4-8… 4 Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel. 5 From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000, from the tribe of Gad 12,000, 6 from the tribe of Asher 12,000, from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000, from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000, 7 from the tribe of Simeon 12,000, from the tribe of Levi 12,000, from the tribe of Issachar 12,000, 8 from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000, from the tribe of Joseph 12,000, from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.

One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: This is their general identification. They are of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Ethnically, they are Jewish, and there are 144,000 of these chosen ones.

 Isaiah 10:21 KJV


21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.

Zephaniah 3:13 KJV


13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

Romans 11:5 KJV


5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

[The abstract below comes from here, and can be found near the bottom of the page in ‘Critical Commentary,’ just click compare under the scripture and drop down to it.]

a remnant according to the election of grace–“As in Elijah’s time the apostasy of Israel was not so uersal as it seemed to be, and as he in his despondency concluded it to be, so now, the rejection of Christ by Israel is not so appalling in extent as one would be apt to think: There is now, as there was then, a faithful remnant; not however of persons naturally better than the unbelieving mass, but of persons graciously chosen to salvation.” (See 1 Corinthians 4:7 , 2 Thessalonians 2:13 ). This establishes our view of the argument on Election in Romans 9:1-29 , as not being an election of Gentiles in the place of Jews, and merely to religious advantages, but a sovereign choice of some of Israel itself, from among others, to believe and be saved.

[This abstract comes by way of Matthew Henry… same page]

By rejecting the gospel, and by their indignation at its being preached to the Gentiles, the Jews were become enemies to God; yet they are still to be favored for the sake of their pious fathers. Though at present they are enemies to the gospel, for their hatred to the Gentiles; yet, when God’s time is come, that will no longer exist, and God’s love to their fathers will be remembered. True grace seeks not to confine God’s favor. Those who find mercy themselves, should endeavor that through their mercy others also may obtain mercy. The captivities of Israel, their dispersion, and their being shut out from the church, are emblems of the believer’s corrections for doing wrong; and the continued care of the Lord towards that people, and the final mercy and blessed restoration intended for them, show the patience and love of God.

Mark 12:9 KJV


9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

Luke 8:10 KJV


10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Below is information about the elect…

When we find out we need Him is when we will seek Him.

When we find out we need Him is when we will seek Him.

Matthew 24:29-41 (This is reference to the words used below, coming from the Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible)

[ …The elect of God are scattered abroad; there are some in all places, and all nations; but when that great gathering day comes, there shall not one of them be missing. Distance of place shall keep none out of heaven. Our Lord declares that the Jews should never cease to be a distinct people, until all things he had been predicting were fulfilled. His prophecy reaches to the day of final judgment; therefore he here, ver. 34, foretells that Judah shall never cease to exist as a distinct people, so long as this world shall endure… ]


(Below is an abstract from the Scofield Reference notes [1917 Edition])

(Greek – ajgenealovghto ,” the primary definition of which is, “race, kind, family, stock, breed).” (So all lexicons.) That the word is used in this sense because none of “these things,” i.e. the world-wide preaching of the kingdom, the great tribulation, the return of the Lord in visible glory, and the regathering of the elect, occurred at the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus, A.D. 70. The promise is, therefore, that the generation–nation, or family of Israel– will be preserved unto “these things”; a promise wonderfully fulfilled to this day.


[The following abstract is fromJohn Darby’s Synopsis of the New Testament]

Seated apart with Him on the Mount of Olives, the disciples inquire when these things were to happen, and what would be the sign of His coming and of the end of the age. They class together the destruction of the temple, the coming of Christ, and the end of the age. We must observe, that here the end of the age is the end of the period during which Israel was subject to the law under the old covenant: a period which was to cease, giving place to the Messiah and to the new covenant. Observe also that God’s government of the earth is the subject, and the judgments that should take place at Christ’s coming, which would put an end to the existing age.

The Lord’s discourse is divided into three parts:- 1. The general condition of the disciples and of the world during the time of the testimony, to the end of verse 14; 2. The period marked out by the fact that the abomination of desolation stands in the holy place (v. 15); 3. The Lord’s coming and the gathering together of the elect in Israel (v. 29).

Besides this, other circumstances prove, if further proof were needed, that it is the Jewish remnant who are in question, and not the assembly. We know that all believers are to be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. They will afterwards return with Him. But here there will be false Christs on the earth, and people will say, “He is here in the wilderness,” “He is there in the secret chambers.” But the saints who shall be caught up and return with the Lord have nothing at all to do with false Christs on earth, since they will go up to heaven to be with Him there, before He returns to the earth; while it is easy to understand that the Jews, who are expecting earthly deliverance, should be liable to such temptations, and that they should be deceived by them unless kept by God Himself.

The Bridegroom would indeed tarry; and the consequences that might be expected from the heart of man will not fail to be realised. But the effect, we then find, is to make manifest those who had [See Footnote #69] really the grace of Christ and those who had not.

[69: How solemn the testimony given here to the effect of the assembly’s losing the present expectation of the Lord’s return! What causes the professing church to run into hierarchical oppression and worldliness, so as to be cut off in the end as hypocrites, is saying in the heart, My lord delayeth his coming-giving up the present expectation. That has been the source of the ruin. The true christian position was lost as soon as they began to put off the Lord’s coming; and they are treated, note, though in this state, as the responsible servant.]


[Below is an abstract taken from the Geneva Study Bible… on Matthew 24]

24:22 And except i those days should be shortened, there should no k flesh be saved: but for the elects sakethose days shall be shortened.

(i) Those things which befell the people of the Jews in the thirty-four years, when the whole land was wasted, and at length the city of Jerusalem was taken, and both it and their temple destroyed, are mixed with those things which will come to pass before the last coming of the Lord.

(k) The whole nation would utterly be destroyed: and this word “flesh” is a figurative word for “man”, as the Hebrews used to say.

It is my prayer this is understood, a distinct difference between ‘the Bride’ and ‘the elect.’ It is my heart felt prayer God will lead you to the truth of His Word. Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be given unto you. You believe this,”Don’t you?” (D.V.)

Your Brother in Christ Jesus,


“Lean we, the pendulum, to bitter or better?”©


, , , , , , , , ,

It is the enemy that steals and robs…

deceives you, blames God for what you feel,

God’s love is complete, wholeness found

in our broken state, to see that He is real,

Have we denied Him… forgotten Him, for

there is His protection we lose, one to steal…

the place our heart finds for Him alone.

Trouble brings us to suffer (unduly) and even

to blame God for the furnace we are now in…

this can be God’s furnace or our own, the

temptation or trial to meet us… our own sin,

think not that you are alone, for you are not,

and even peace and calm can be found to win…

the place our heart finds for Him alone.

The whole world suffers to greater or lesser

depth than what we alone experience or know,

this is when we should not grapple with things

we cannot know but to lean on God to so show

we do love and trust Him with our whole heart-

this is when His compassion will allow us to grow…

the place our heart finds for Him alone.

This is an inspired piece… one to tell the hurting world I’m just like them. I’m an ‘incest survivor’… one that God placed in His hands and allowed me the discomfort of body, mind and soul- only to find Him always there when I need Him most. I ran with: denial, anger and upset for years… drugs did not help to remove the pain and hurt of disgrace. I came to find it was not my fault… and having come through this destructive time in my own life- I can now help those who are caught in it (the same as I was) themselves. The insight I have comes from going through the stages of any other trauma: shock, denial, anger and acceptance. This is my story… my life, and what I’m here to tell you is the reason I went through this- to give the glory of my recovery to God Himself. I could do nothing on my own… faced with the unsurmountable mountains limiting my view to any hope at all. Please know when it comes to ‘afflictions and adversities‘ there are many… but who we come to trust in comes down to two choices- ourselves or God!

If 'pain' had a face it would look like this- distorted!

If ‘pain’ had a face it would look like this- distorted!

Job 5:6-11… 6 For hardship does not spring from the soil, nor does trouble sprout from the ground. 7 Yet man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward. 8 “But if it were I, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before Him. 9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. 10 He bestows rain on the earth; he sends water upon the countryside. 11 The lowly he sets on high, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.

When blind are the sighted

unwilling to see…

see truths apparent as they

are and must be,

the senses so temporal, bound

to this Earth,

angels cry ’til they laugh…

unknown is our worth,

this temporary lesson for

contemporary life…

never were we told to beggar

another in strife,

not told to amass mountains

of fame, piles of cash…

wherein to deny another

of mediocrity’s lash,

the passion of the Christ

will be our own to know…

be not bewildered when

fallow fields grow to show

no mercy, they hated The Lord,

and hold no less for you…

understand it when it happens

and know truth a vital clue.

Christian Studies lead to but one conclusion… the Bible is a history book turned upside down- telling what we will go through before we get there. Old Testament had more to do with the coming of the Messiah (Jesus)… also some to tell of in the times in which we live today. New Testament tells us what: happened when the Messiah came, comes from human hands in our present and future, and of the second coming [the return] of Jesus as Lord. This Theocracy will not be run by man (on God’s account) but by God Himself- the Kingdom of God on Earth.

[Some of the abstracts used are from here and come under (at the bottom of the page) Commentary critical.]

Israel reached the summit of abominations, which drew down desolation (Matthew 24:28), nay, which is the desolation itself, when, after murdering Messiah, they offered sacrifices, Mosaic indeed in form, but heathenish in spirit (compare Isaiah 1:13, Ezekiel 5:11). Christ refers to this passage (Matthew 24:15), “When ye see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place” (the latter words being tacitly implied in “abominations” as being such as are committed against the sanctuary). TREGELLES translates, “upon the wing of abominations shall be that which causes desolation”; namely, an idol set up on a wing or pinnacle of the temple (compare Matthew 4:5) by Antichrist, who makes a covenant with the restored Jews for the last of the seventy weeks of years (fulfilling Jesus’ words, “If another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive”), and for the first three and a half years keeps it, then in the midst of the week breaks it, causing the daily sacrifices to cease.

Just a graph to view... to understand.

Just a graph to view… to understand.

Christianity, Biblical prophecy, also tells me the ‘Temple’ in Jerusalem will be rebuilt. There are people in Israel (today) looking forward to this event, and here is one group standing at the ready. This is, indeed, a very important time in human history. Watch for ‘the Red Cow‘ rising in importance to Jewish Prophecy concerning the nation. The prophecy of Daniel speaks of seventy weeks (years) and God’s timepiece is on hold [at the moment] to allow for the church (the living temple… the body of Christ) to preach the ‘Good News’ of the Gospel. The last week (understood as the last seven years) in Biblical prophecy will be split in two, three and one half years each. The first three and a half years will bring peace… in the Middle East but the last three and a half years will be ‘The Great Tribulation.’

Daniel 9:24-27… is where this is spelled out, more specifically in verse twenty seven.

the vision–the further revelation as to Messiah in connection with Jeremiah’s prophecy of seventy years of the captivity. The charge to “understand” is the same as in Matthew 24:15, where Rome primarily, and Antichrist ultimately, is referred to.

Since He (Jesus) came as a servant, He chose for His appearing the period darkest of all as to His people’s temporal state. Always fresh persecutors have been rising, whose end is destruction, and so it shall be with the last enemy, Antichrist.

Messiah was to cause all sacrifices and oblations in general to “cease” utterly. There is here an allusion only to Antiochus’ act; to comfort God’s people when sacrificial worship was to be trodden down, by pointing them to the Messianic time when salvation would fully come and yet temple sacrifices cease. This is the same consolation as Jeremiah and Ezekiel gave under like circumstances, when the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar was impending (Jeremiah 3:16, 31:31, Ezekiel 11:19). Jesus died in the middle of the last week, A.D. 30. His prophetic life lasted three and a half years; the very time in which “the saints are given into the hand” of Antichrist (Daniel 7:25).

Will we stay blind until it happens... and then be surprised by it?

Will we stay blind until it happens… and then be surprised by it?

Jesus taught:” I am telling you now before it happens, that when it does happen you will believe that I am He” (John 13:19).

May we endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, to love one another with a pure heart fervently, and to walk humbly with our God.

[The abstracts of information on the ‘Temple’ come from the link below. and the writing on the subject fromAnthony J. Petrotta]


While the temple certainly has a history and integrity of its own, it was created by extension of the tabernacle and is associated with such diverse topics as a mountain and a city, the cosmos and a person’s body, and God’s glory and name. The biblical authors from Moses through Ezekiel and Haggai to John of Patmos never describe a complete temple, but offer a vision of what the temple was to be: the locus of the presence of God.

The paradoxical and symbolic nature of the temple is thus seen as the author(s) construct the parameters of temple theology: the transcendent deity graciously appears before his holy people in the place of his choosing, a dwelling symbolically rich by virtue of its ability to generate varied metaphoric associations (fire, cloud, tent, ark, and most especially “name” in the Pentateuch).

Paul also makes the correspondence between the temple and body: “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?” (1 Cor 6:19; see also Rom 12:1-2). Of course, the believer can be called the temple of God only because Christ himself is the temple and the believer participates in Christ (1 Cor 3:9-17). The believer, like Paul himself, must be (cultically) pure in order to live in God’s presence (2 Cor 2:17). If God can dwell in a holy place, by extension, he could dwell in a holy person!

After the destruction of the temple in a.d. 70, temple theology loses none of its living and healing power since the temple was always “beyond” its physical presence. A theology of temple answers the problem of how God’s presence is mediated. Specifically, temple theology recognizes the importance of “sacred space.” Its analogue is sacred timeSabbath, festivals, and appointed times of prayer. Humankind is oriented in time and space, thus Sabbath and temple testify to “eternity” beyond the confines of our usual orientation. Sabbath and temple redeem time and space.

“Linger not on conjecture”©

[This was up-dated Sept. 20th, 2015]

MYTH: Legend, fable, story

INNUENDO: suggestion, implication, allusion

SPECULATION: To form a theory or conjecture about a subject without firm evidence.

There are some to say… whom may disregard the

words found in the Bible as just words by man,

this naive opinion having been formed, or given

to them, by their own understanding or eolian

muse… divined by ‘water witch’ or some other

means as equally stirring, lore of an unknown,

neither proven to themselves or multitudes of

people, still their own belief remains unshaken,

so strong a thing is belief… not just an idea but

an idea that pursues and captivates our mind,

this is not a trance, potion or talisman given us

that pervades our consciousness, this will bind

us to our thoughts when proof is granted us to

see… to escalate the urgency of the message,

this is now the very reason: observation, senses,

research and information gained now assuage

those around us, thinking we’ve lost what makes

us all human, but it is this that cements humanity…

what mankind has forsaken as ‘useless fiction’ is

clearer to me- the vision and restoration of sanity.

When it comes to what is considered evidence (legally referred to as the law of evidence) and this must be defined to understand it fully, or it cannot be applied (reviewed, organized and reinforced) when you’d use it. Let’s agree to the basic four: real, demonstrative, documentary and testimonial. Evidence can be deemed competent if determined to be reliable, the reliability factor, and can become ‘a foundational evidence’- meeting ‘traditional requirements’ to be called such. For the sake of ‘due argument(s) to arise,’ here I’ll offer both relevant information and hyper-links to material to gain authentication and validity to the claims I believe in and would support. Concerning real evidence, I offer this brief abstract below from this link

Real evidence may be authenticated in three ways–by identification of a unique object, by identification of an object that has been made unique, and by establishing a chain of custody.

The Life of Jesus can be established by: His tomb being found, the ossuary of James(His Brother) being discovered, historical writings of Josephus/Tacitus/James [Jewish/Greco-Roman/Christian] respectively, and what the Bible tells us directly. The two abstracts found below can be seen here.

[The gospel as the saving message of Jesus Christ is the living and enduring word of God ( 1 Peter 1:18-23 ). It is reliable and supremely authoritative, for it is inseparable from the person and character of its Sender the sovereign, loving, creator God.

The close connection between God and his word means that the qualities attributed to God’s word also describe God’s own personal character. In the Old Testament God’s word is creative (Psalm 33:6), good (Micah 2:7), holy (Jer 23:9), complete (Jer 26:2), flawless (2 Sam 22:31; Psalm 12:6; 18:30; Prov 30:5), all-sufficient (Deut 8:3; Isa 50:4; Jer 15:16), sure (Isa 31:2; 45:23; Jer 44:28), right and true (Judges 13:12Judges 13:17; 1 Sam 3:19; Psalm 33:4; Isa 55:11), understandable (Deuteronomy 4:10Deuteronomy 4:12Deuteronomy 4:36; Neh 8:12), active (Hosea 6:5), all-powerful (Psalm 68:11-14; 147:15-18), indestructible (Jer 23:29), supreme (Psalm 17:4), eternal (Psalm 119:89; Isa 40:8), life-giving (Deut 32:46-47), wise (Psalm 119:130), and trustworthy (2 Sam 7:28; 1 Kings 17:16). Therefore, God was understood similarly.]

Did Jesus exist? This is a very short compilation which should be a good start... some evidence to the view 'Jesus was who He claimed He was."

Did Jesus exist? This is a very short compilation which should be a good start… some evidence to the view ‘Jesus was who He claimed He was.”

Can science yield buried truths thought fable but real none the less. I say Archaeology is proving and disproving notions of error every day… with every new find unearthed. I give you what a Roman influence buried in the sands of time looks like, dated to the third century C. E., and likely the oldest church ever found in the Holy land [found under the prison… a chapel called,“The Chapel of the Centurion of Armageddon”], at Megiddo, Israel.

As for precautionary concerns… for our health, I also find the discussion of possible contaminants, microbial contact and the outcome… contamination from infectious diseases, spoken of in the Torah [this today is the first five books of the Bible] long before microscopes were even thought of, or the possibility to living cells being so small they could not be seen by the naked eye but have dire consequences to our contact with them.

Why the world trusts ‘ancient manuscripts’ of Literature but not ancient manuscripts of a Theological nature is beyond me… and equally telling is this information of antiquity- nothing here to be called fable, legend or story… now also historical documents. I give you the dead sea scrolls… in all their glory. Though the oldest known documents are the ‘Dead Sea Scrolls,’ there is also,”The Aleppo Codex,” found here.

Prophecy is where the Bible actually tells the reader what will happen before it happens- a history book written in the past and telling us (exactly) what will take place… come to pass. No other book in human history has done this with a one hundred percent accuracy to what was stated. We have the ancient record of what the prophets said would happen before Jesus came (the first time). If what was told us by the prophets concerning: the life of Jesus, His death, the resurrection and His ascension is provable, this is where the Gospels are eyewitness accounts… verified by agreement to the events themselves. Therefore, the prophecies to come, concerning the future time spoken of, hold the same validity as the past- bearing more relevance to the events of our own lives and times in which we live today. The prophecies have also been called Messianic in nature, those having a direct connection with believers (of Jesus) coming from the people of Israel itself. This is also where probability and statistical analysis come into play. One of the most questioned individuals is Dr. Peter W. Stonerhere is some of his work on this subject.

There are also Geological components to this same conclusion, or summation of directionality to thought… using reasonable means to acquire such opinion, and one such article bears stirring credibility to the lineage of Jesus. See this article found here.

Still think this is a “blind faith,” being unsubstantiated or nominal in essence– I hope you reconsider. Even Doctors when presented (evidence) new informationchange their mind.

P.S. There is so much more to share here… but I will limit the extent of my sharing (with you) to what is listed above. Topically, there is still the question of: Intelligent Design, If we base time on the movement of the heavens… are we still considered heading toward improvement (Cosmos) or not (Chaos)?, what does it mean to be “Anthropomorphically driven,” How does the Law of Thermo-dynamics apply to Ascendant or Descendant views of the universe?,” and many more.

The motivation to look for God comes from the realization we need Him!

length of life is, temporal or eternal… a grave or celestial arch

over the head when seen in the heavens themselves, or the

transformation of a butterfly (or moth) to completely undergo a

change of nature, designed so differently from what it started as

end of its usefulness, as God and mankind know it to be, and

the Cosmos will be renewed by God Himself… man having no

There is a predestined time… an immutable and unchanging time for mankind to realize, and the choice is known before it happens– this is God’s own to know and acknowledge. This does not change or alter (the fact) that God still gives man his choice to believe in Him or not- it is only man that says to man you must choose (now) or die [submit]. God will never force you but man will… thinking himself right to do so! Won’t you become a part of it, as you are predestined to be… to live forever? If the spirit lives on, then there are but two choices for it to reside (forever), with God or without! You still have time to choose, and I pray you’ll make up your mind while you have the time.

The world has taken issue with religion and religious thoughts, faith, and would seek to undermine the claims of those saying they are right (over another)- but extremists do live in our world too. Do you think the extremists that are killing people for who and what they believe give a damn about what the world perceives as wrong? I’m leaning toward prophecy, Biblical prophecy… that coming from Judaism and the Hebrew God, and this prophecy tells me the world will move closer and closer to a ‘one world religion’ toward the end of days- the final days of man’s reign on this earth. The push for this to take place will be through secular means… and will have the look of religion but no substance to it- it will be hollow, empty and void of anything worth having… a fraud.

[Below is an abstract from an article written by Hugh O’Shaughnessy, of http://www.theguardian.com- one entitled,”Tony Blair’s Faith Foundation inspires ridicule.“]

One of the aims of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation will be that of remaking the major religions, just as his colleague Barack Obama will remake global society. With this purpose, the foundation in question will try to expand the ‘new rights’, using the world religions for this end and adapting these for their new duties. The religions will have to be reduced to the same common denominator, which means stripping them of their identity …

Since this comes at a time in human history when denial to bare naked hatred of: Jewish people, Christian believers and any that will not go along with points of belief forced on them, when pluralism will be used as ‘the peaceful answer to disagreements.’ This attempt to mask globalization as a means to put-on-the-face-of-tolerance but decry any declaring how wrong it is as being: close minded, a threat to their peaceful (?) goals and even a danger to these lofty aims or themselves. Rick Warren is also listed under this same umbrella, and is no stranger to the “coming soon” push to this world wide vision (as they would call it).

The last link posted above is one with questions of heart and mind to: one world globalization, Rick Warren’s involvement and prophecy coming to pass in front of our (surprised) eyes. I have no personal axe to grind with Rick Warren but see the writing on the wall. I will stand and support those who will stand firm for ‘the Good News’ of the Gospel but I do happen to know Rick Warren is also an open member of the CFR. It is the CFR that gave us the UN… and UN support has helped Tony Blair start the ‘Faith Foundation.’ The Millennium Development Goals Report 2015, put out by the UN (and is a download), and please notice on page eight [under ‘Conflicts remain the biggest threat to human development’]… despite claiming conflicts (by the end of 2014) have forced (almost) 60 million people from their homes… nothing is specifically stated about what the cause of the conflicts was or what parts of the world are affected by ‘this’ as its cause. You must go to Page twenty three to see more information about the conflicts and people displaced, getting a little more defined but not clearly stating why the people in Syria were displaced. Page nine also has in the overview a topic containing the words,”… leaves no one behind.” Does this sound even vaguely familiar- remember George Bush’s,”No Child Left Behind?” That worked real well… didn’t it? I ran into a lady that gave her eighteen year old Grandson a birthday card; which was hand written (cursive writing) and he couldn’t read it! Let’s go back, page nine also comes to the conclusion that we are now ‘realizing Human Rights.’ I don’t know about you but I’m realizing prophecy has told us there will be many false prophets, lies will abound and we will continue to be assaulted with messages of peace, happiness and how good it is going to be.

The perception of happiness, coming from the UN, will be in implementing ‘Agenda 21 (something that came out of ‘the Earth Summit‘ in Rio de Janiero, 1992,’ and the biggest catch word is sustainable. One of the ways globalization will take effect (intrusively or not and geared to be socialized… like Europe already is) will be to exert local influence, and this will be through groups like ICLEI, a means for MDG’s [Millennium Development Goals] to reach out and touch local communities such as yours (and mine). Welcome to prophecy 101.

[The following abstract comes from here, and gives us a clue to but one of the many Titles conferred on Jesus, this one is hyphenated to include two in one (or more… as you’ll see).]

Author-Prince. Jesus is called “Author” in Acts 3:15 and Hebrews 2:10;12:2 and “Prince” in Acts 5:31 (NIV). In each case the Greek word is the same: archegos [ajrchgov]. Uses of the term in the Greek Old Testament (LXX) and non-biblical Greek suggest it carries a threefold connotation: (1) path-breaker (pioneer) who opens the way for others, hence,”guide” or “hero“; (2) the source or founder, hence “author,” “initiator, ” “beginning“; and (3) the leader-ruler, hence,”captain, ” “prince, ” “king.” The ideas may well overlap or be combined. In its fullest sense the Greek word denotes someone who explores new territory, opens a trail, and leads others to it.

“There has never been a box big enough to contain our thoughts on God”©


, , , , ,

Have you ever wondered why God, Jesus,

would take your penalty of sin and die?

This is much more than just symbolic…

it is God’s solution, to cause men to try

and understand how strongly God loves

us… to become man and die for man’s sin,

to cover us in our sin state, to wash us,

so God does not see it, heaven to win

more souls of humanity… of all mankind,,,

benefit from God’s loving heart, sacrifice,

to accept His love is to know contrition…

to ask forgiveness, to believe… His grace,

to die for all mankind, to be found as

acceptable in God’s eyes, He is a personal

God… can’t you see Him for all He did for

you… for me, not brief here, the supernal,

there is sound reason lambs are symbolic

to: people, herd-thought, followers true…

to disregard the danger we find ourselves

in, to follow the lead off a cliff with no clue,

therein sets the tone, meaning and reason

for our personal need for God, our Shepherd…

it was Him, Jesus… The good Shepherd laid

down His life to protect us when we feared

for our lives but know by His actions have

we been spared, know His loving deliverance…

He will only oppose those standing against

Him or His own, this is not a blind reliance.

There are so many people thinking ‘their view’ or ‘their god’ is the same as any other. The ‘living God’ is the one that parted the Red Sea… to deliver His own people from certain destruction. Then, the lamb’s blood was to mark the doors, the Passover, to be seen as an archetype (a precursor) to the final protected act of a returning ruler- in Christianity… the second coming of Jesus Christ Himself. Unfortunately, there are still some Christians that do not believe in ‘the rapture [Harpazo],’ and yet passover (protection from the most significant plague… the loss of the first born male child) points to this truth in a strikingly clear manner. There are many parallels throughout the Bible… this is one of the end times [foretold] events (prophecies) which correlates and resounds time and time again. What all believers will agree on is the certainty of the return, or second coming, of Jesus Christ to earth. This event [advent] is called the ‘Parousia [parousiva]’ and we should neither be ashamed or doubtful about what the word of God says will surely happen. I must add here… the substitution of Jesus dying for our sins is also known as ‘vicarious atonement,’ and you can see what atonement details here.

[The abstract below comes from this location, and does include the three primary views of most christians… depending on which camp they have settled in for their own views.]

Pretribulationists hold that there follows a period of tribulation for those remaining on earth (Matt. 24), which will last for a thousand years ( Rev 20:5 ). Midtribulationists think that the church will experience three and a half years of the tribulation before being raptured (citing Dan 7:25 , etc. ). Posttribulationists hold that the church will remain on earth throughout the tribulation and that the return of Christ is after that. It is difficult to resist the conclusion that some have been far too confident in the way they interpret some difficult scriptural passages. That Christ will return at the end of the age, bringing “those who have fallen asleep in him” ( 1 Thess 4:14 ) and that living believers will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air is clearly taught ( 1 Thess 4:17 ). So is the fact that all this will be public and open, for the Lord will come “with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God” ( 1 Thess 4:16 ). But we must exercise care in the way we go beyond these words and in our attempts to relate them to other scriptural passages. Whichever way we interpret the difficult passages we must bear in mind Jesus’ exhortation to his followers to watch ( Matt 24:42 ).

Thus throughout the Book of Revelation we are reminded that the power of evil cannot stand up to the might of God. The final triumph of good over evil is brought out in a number of ways, notably in the magnificent vision of the heavenly city and in the vision of the wedding of the Lamb.

There are some willing to take the stand in their belief the wedding of the bride (the church) will be between the rapture and the second coming. This is based on being depicted as wearing the garments provided for her, seen in Revelation 19:8. The conclusion states, this could only happen after the bride would be examined in the judgement seat of God- the bridegroom Himself, Jesus. It is due to this belief… thought whereby the marriage of the lamb would be prior to the return of Jesus Christ in Revelation 19:11-21.

When we think we understand is when it becomes time to open the box of what we ‘think we know’ to an even deeper truth… God may be found in a box of what we ‘think we know’ but will never be contained by it. God has always been the same… omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient- God Almighty.

According to this ‘New Age Channeler (often demonic in origin),’ going by Red Moon Rising, they await the removal of christians from the earth. If demonic forces wait for this event… to unfold and become a reality… there must be a reason!

I’ve written on the rapture before, see more here, and know there are more than a few papers on this topic, and each of these, by the grace of God, have many and varied hyper-links to information which could be critical to your understanding of this. The imperative here is,”Not To Put God (or what you think you know about God) In A Box.”

Unfold the box... and reveal a cross!

Unfold the box… and reveal a cross!

Jeremiah 7:34 KJV


34 Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.

Jeremiah 25:10 KJV


10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle.

Please notice in Jeremiah 25:10 the words,” … I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness… !” Respectively, this refers to ‘the church [believers] and God Himself- Jesus.’

[The abstract below comes from this link, and found near the bottom of the page under ‘Critical Commentary’ for the scripture provided.]

For God giveth not the Spirit by measure–Here, again, the sharpest conceivable line of distinction is drawn between Christ and all human-inspired teachers: “They have the Spirit in a limited degree; but God giveth not [to Him] the Spirit by measure.” It means the entire fulness of divine life and divine power. The present tense “giveth,” very aptly points out the permanent communication of the Spirit by the Father to the Son, so that a constant flow and reflow of living power is to be understood (Compare John 1:15 ).

Be found written in the Lamb’s book of life… while there is still time!

Revelation 18:23 KJV


23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

P.S. I just found this page [with varied viewpoints and from different people] and thought it could be shared to offer differing views to my own. Test the spirit of it… even what I have written against scripture itself. God gave you a brain that you might use it, to reason with… especially to questions you might have. Just know scripture tells us in Isaiah 1:18… Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

“There should be no doubt… to who Jesus claimed He was”©


, , , , , , ,

There is so much speculation in the world to who Jesus was or was not! Some would say He was nothing more than a: Prophet, Teacher or Holy man of God. I am going to challenge what is said by those that might be considered: skeptical, unbelievers, disbelievers, people ill-informed and even uninformed. One thing all should realize prior to making any decisions about what is placed here… there will be no middle ground, you will be found in one camp or the other when this is done- to choose Jesus as being what and who He claimed to be, God incarnate, or to choose not to believe. I pray you will find more reasons to see Him for who He was, is and will be [forever]… The Lord God Almighty Himself.

There are different views of Jesus found in the Bible and the Koran, and I will fixate on these two versions, being they both come from within the Monotheism scope of understanding. Even if all three religious groups contained within this structure do not fully agree with one another, Judaism, Islam and Christianity, I will look mainly at these two groups for the sake of this study. I must say this prior to going forward with the thoughts on my heart, since there are three religions coming from under this umbrella of Monotheism: Judaism, Islam and Christianity… and, oddly, we find that only in Judaism and Islam do they recognize each other as being monotheistic. This sounds like they have different views of a different God. doesn’t it? (Please note… this is all coming from the Abrahamic religions for your clearer view of why and what I will speak of.)

The most confusion I see comes from views of Jesus,or His name… having been changed (either from a difference of language or coming from a view [assumed] desiring to alter the importance of declarations made) to suit the the one viewing Him. For instance, in the Koran… there seems to be many names (not just phrases used for descriptive purposes, as found in Judaism, or from Hebrew, for their God) to suggest they are one person to be understood- most confusing. Let me explain! There are some Koranic scholars saying ‘the name of Jesus, in the Koran, is found: Isa, Esa, Esau or Yesu.’ I find the need to transform the name of Jesus into something other than what it was can convey an unrealistic notion of the very mission Jesus was on and would be an attempt to alter the nature of His name and meaning to it. There also seems to be many more, depending on: who you talk to, where they are from and what they (themselves) have learned or been taught. Compounded by the many names is a widened path to extreme confusion. Here is one string (from a link) of conversation about ‘Isa’ and some Muslim beliefs. As you can plainly see… there are a few different views, some information that seems out of place (either from misunderstanding a word or phrase) and reason for the belief can become muddled. This is a rebuttal to the views put forth by Ahmed Deedat, an attributable source of this viewpoint. The rebuttal is written by Dr. Mark Durie, an Anglican Minister, also a senior associate of the Department of Linguistics and Applied Linguistics at the University of Melbourne.

Two of the words misunderstood (or not fully recognized) are ‘anointed‘ or ‘Messiah.’ Being anointed means (concerning Jesus) God’s anointed: a monarch ruling by divine right, and Messiah means: the promised deliverer of the Jewish nation prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, and for Christiansthe Messiah of the Hebrew prophecies and Savior of humankind. Since Jesus means ‘God saves’ this is not fully incorporated into another’s viewpoint or conceptually understood when the name of Jesus is transliterated into another language due to the possibility it could be translated wrongly, in honest error or by design.

Know Him for who He claimed He was!

Know Him for who He claimed He was!

There should be no other person or name used when it comes to Jesus, for there was only one person with His name doing the things that He did. In fact, the things Jesus did point to what He was… more than a: man, prophet, teacher or Holy man. Demons knew Him for who He truly was, told us in the Bible.

Luke 8:28 KJV


28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God Most High? I beseech thee, torment me not.

Torment for a demon would be to send him straight to captivity. For the scripture above is a Bible Study from ‘The Singles Network Ministries, by Kris Swiatocho- found here.

Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured. Then all the people of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them, because they were overcome with fear. So he got into the boat and left (Luke 8:36-37).

He made the blind to see, the lame to walk, and brought Lazarus back from being dead for four days.

Isaiah 29:18 KJV


18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

Matthew 12:22 KJV


22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

Matthew 11:5 KJV


5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

The generations from Adam through Abraham… from David through to Jesus, this is the Adamic lineage.

If heaven is your goal...

If heaven is your goal…

Matthew 1:1 KJV


1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

John 8:58 KJV


58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

Genesis 17:1 KJV


1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them–to the Pharisees and scribes; addressing Himself to them, though they had shrunk from addressing Him. They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick–that is, “Ye deem yourselves whole; My mission, therefore, is not to you: The physician’s business is with the sick; therefore eat I with publicans and sinners.” Oh, what myriads of broken hearts, of sin-sick souls, have been bound up by this matchless saying!

A new heaven and a new earth will come!

[The abstracts below (1, 2 and 3) are found here.]

1)… This psalm (Psalm 2:1-9) records the general opposition of man to the rule of God, especially by the leaders of men. The divine response to this rejection includes wrath and a promise that Jesus will ‘break them’ and ‘dash them.’ These are not terms describing gradual Christian conversion and enlightenment which will one day encircle the globe as men continually turn to God. Rather, this psalm describes the radical intervention by God into human history to overthrow the rejection of His King. God’s climactic intervention in the affairs of a rejecting world to establish His kingdom on earth is the theme of numerous other passages.

2)… In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, the imagery here is violent, sudden and dramatic—the exact opposite of the gradual worldwide conversion which postmillennialists expect to be the fruit of the gospel spreading across the earth.

This also applies to any other viewpoint or belief held by humanity or mankind… the Day of Wrath will come not from man but God Himself. Likewise, the Kingdom of God will not come by man’s hand but by God Himself.

3)… This time of trouble is unavoidably connected with “the problem of man.” This problem is as old as Satan: pride. It is God’s express purpose to turn man’s pride to humility in “the Day of the Lord.” For the day of the LORD of hosts Shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up-And it shall be brought low- upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan; upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up; upon every high tower, and upon every fortified wall; upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all the beautiful sloops. The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day. (Isa. Isa. 2:10-17) [emphasis added]

[PLEASE NOTE: the last scripture and reference is called (shortened version) Isa… but this stands for Isaiah.]

Jesus came that all might have eternal life, a life more abundant than this one, and He will remake the world and the heavens themselves. To marvel at the handiwork of His hands… and we would think it a marvel now- and it still is. See more on what Jesus, The Creator God, has planned for us all to see… if we but believe in Him.

The Supremacy of Christ

Colossians 1:15-23 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. 21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation– 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

One more view on what we can do to have a closer walk with God, see the link here.

It is my prayer you will reason with these words shared here… beneficial to all that might listen, see and share ‘the Good News’ of the Gospel of Jesus. We will have an eternal life… the life to come, and Jesus shed His blood, died for us all, to save us from hell itself. Will you consider the value and importance these words hold, I hope you will? (D.V.)

Your Brother in Christ Jesus,


“There are none beside me… there is no equal to me!”©

Your word tells me Lord there are none who even compares…

there are none to be Your equal found throughout man’s affairs,

mercy is found where your servant calls You… You know his name,

no capricious god are You, Your works are marvelous to acclaim,

no deeds can rival… devotion brings one to rest, beside us peace,

You are forgiving, abounding in love, salvation brings true release,

when we trust, really trust, in You and You alone, You we’ll worship,

You leave no nagging doubts to Your Kingdom come, Your Lordship,

from nothing, chaos, and You spoke creation in… to be,

and what is here, now, is so staggering to experience… to see,

so great is Your love You have spared me from earthen grave

I am humbled to know You love me and came to earth to save

each person that would call on Your precious name, so dear,

to know You will answer us and the message to be quite clear.

Lord God Almighty

10 For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said , None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.

If there has ever been sound reason for man to seek God, it should be because it is He, Our God [should we claim Him as our own], whom is ‘the Almighty one‘ and none other. Must we hit ‘rock bottom’ before we think to acknowledge Him… I pray it not so- this is when many will come to call out for God’s help. Better to realize we cannot do anything without God being there already!

Jesus was, is and will be everything He claimed He is- God Almighty Himself!

return . . . for–The antecedent redemption is the ground of, and motive to, repentance. We do not repent in order that He may redeem us, but because He hath redeemed us ( Zechariah 12:10 , Luke 24:47 , Acts 3:18Acts 3:19 ). He who believes in his being forgiven cannot but love ( Luke 7:43Luke 7:47 ).

servant–in a collective sense, for the prophets in general, who foretold the return from Babylon; answering to “His messengers” (plural, in the parallel clause) [MAURER]. Antitypically, and ultimately, Messiah, who is the consummating embodiment of all the prophets and messengers of God ( Malachi 3:1, Matthew 21:34,Matthew 21:36,Matthew 21:37, John 10:36 ); hence the singular,”His servant.”
counsel–predictions; prophets’ counsels concern the future (compare “counsellor,” Isaiah 41:28 ).

my shepherd–type of Messiah ( Isaiah 40:11, Psalms 23:1, 77:20, Ezekiel 34:23 ). 

all my pleasure–so Messiah ( Isaiah 42:1 , 53:10 ). This is the first time Cyrus is named expressly; and that, a hundred fifty years before the time when in 550 B.C. he began his reign. The name comes from the Persian khorschid, “the sun”; kings often taking their names from the gods; the sun was worshipped as a god in Persia.
saying–rather, “and that saith”; construed with God, not with Cyrus. God’s word is instantaneously efficient in accomplishing His will.

abomination–the scriptural term for an idol, not merely abominable, but the essence of what is so, in the eyes of a jealous God ( 1 Kings 11:5,1 Kings 11:7 ).

for me–It is FOR GOD that all things exist and take place ( Revelation 4:11 ).

Seek and find Him for He would have life more abundant to give you- if you but believe in Him... as God the Savior.

[The concept of ‘the servant Lord‘ is taking hold in Afghanistan today, and it is found as strange a thing, in concept, as any other- being so contrary to ‘the Warlord’ they are accustomed to. To yield power in strength at bay, in order to preserve life instead of taking it!]
