  • Manchin should abandon the Democrats: Sen. Mike Lee

    David to DoodleDawg; LucyT
    "Manchin isn't an idiot. He knows that if he switches to the Republicans he gets primaried out in 2024. If he stays with the Democrats he has a chance of reelection. A dwindling chance but still a chance."

    With all due respect to your view, that looks to be backwards.

    If Manchin runs for reelection as a dem, he doesn't have much chance at getting reelected against an R; on the other hand if he flips to R, he beats anything the Dems have on the bench.

    Really a worse story than told.

    I am an Oklahoma transplant; great place to live; moved my primary residence here twenty years ago and have no regrets.

    OU is not only drifting left politically but it is doing a really poor job educating students in every area. Becoming a joke as one of the worst public education institutions in America.

    The good news is that there is n excellant education institution at Tulsa University a hundred miles away.

  • Ask An Eastern Orthodox Christian: The Rapture

    I Thessalonians 4:14-17: 14. "For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord . . . . 17. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up togetherwith them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air . . . . "

    A well documented letter from Paul to the church at Thessalonica written in about 51 AD prior to the Revelation.

    When does this happen?

    In I Thess 5:9, Paul tells us that "God hath not appointed us to wrath . . . . " And in a second letter, written shortly after the first, he tells us in II Thess 2:3: "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come except . . . that man of sin be revealed . . . . "

    Revelation Chapter Six concludes with 6:17: "For the great day of his wrath has come . . . . "

    And thus next in Revelation Seven, at 7:9-17, we see the saved Christians in heaven before the throne of God.

    Recognize that Revelation Six describes six events and conditions that occur in order at the breaking of six seals on a scroll; the first five of those seals have been broken and the events and conditions have been seen exactly as described; event six--Revelation 6:12, is a Great Earthquake in which "all of the mountains and islands are moved out of their places". That does not appear to have happened yet.

    Jesus says he stands at the door and knocks that whoever will admit him, he will enter. Point of the foregoing is the implicit suggestion that door may, at some point, close--so each of us should examine our own hearts and consider our condition carefully.

    Most Americans do not appear to be aware that we have two separate intelligence operations in place—one, the Company in Langley, ultimate successor to the Liberal Establishment OSS; the other based in DC, now the DIA; ultimate successor to the MacArthur and General Charles A. Willoboughy Field Operations Intelligence in Japan.

    Fact that DIA has this guy does not exactly equate to a biden control.

    The point of the developing interest in the events of the end times preceding the day of the Lord is to emphasize to all that the door of salvation is open to all who accept the entry of Jesus Christ.

    But a careful reading of God's Plan also tells us that the day is approaching when the door will close so everyone should consider their destiny carefully.

    Many of the events of the end will occur in Israel--the Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet; identification of the Man of Sin is another.

    Spoken of first by Jesus Christ in John 5:43 ("I who come in my father's name you reject; but another who comes in his own name you will receive"). In what capacity was Jesus rejected in the Temple? The claim by the another is that he and not Jesus Christ is the Messiah.

    Another is by definition a Jew on behalf of the Temple establishment in Jerusalem. He comes from a nation of people which is "among" the ten nations of Daniel Chapter 7 but diverse from them; the people of the ten nations have national territory and identity of their own but the people of the eleventh horn are diverse--they live in the territory of the ten.

  • What Difference Does Proving a Stolen Election Make? All the Difference in the World

    The issue of consequences is a little more complicated than Mr. Root understands. He may turn out to be correct at the bottom line which would be a favorable outcome.

    But the actual condition today is a little different than he imagines. America is already aware that the election was stolen--no doubt.

    Trump in fact won in a landslide. Not only Georgia and Arizona which are now being pretty clearly established--he won Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada and almost certainly also New Hampshire and Virginia. And that ignores the fact that much of the California vote was by persons who were probably not eligible to vote because they were not citizens.

    A majority of the American people are aware of all that.

    The bottom line is what we are prepared to do about it.

    They are not going away. I doubt seriously that we are likely to have an election of any kind in 2022; and if another fake election is held, it will be done in an even more blunt way--they are not going to allow the citizens to take back control through the electoral process.

    So what are we going to do about it?

    I have considered running against Lankford for a couple of years and have gone so far as to figure out where and how I come up with the $10mm I think it is likely to cost to run a successful campaign.

    That said, I prefer not to have to do so. It is likely to take a professionally managed operation to do this--the newspapers and the local media generally will support James as will the McConnell funded Senate Support money.

    I think a reasonable case can be made that the first five seals in Revelation Chapter Six have been broken and the described events and conditions have occurred exactly as specified.

    Seal Number Six is Revelation 6:12: "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake . . . 14 . . . and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.."

    That is not to say 6:12 is Yellowstone. But if it is . . . .

    This is sort of bad science. Our entire foundation of basic gravity science has undergone some significant modification over the past decade.

    Issue here is the author's reference to gravity as a "pull" force or "attracting" force--it isn't. The bottom line about weight may be correct; it may not be.

    But the current view is that gravity is the force of unseen push on your body which exists throughout the universe.

    The question is important. We are able to recognize that there is technology out there which shields physical objects including our body from the ultimate gravity force--in effect wraps the physical body in a force field that deflects the push.

    That is what makes "anti-gravity" work.

    Several unfortunate comments; would be great if it were today; and yes, if one studies events in Jerusalem, one might see the outlines somewhat more clearly.

  • Joe Biden: The Fake Messiah

    David to Kaslin; LucyT
    Who is the Anti Christ?

    Jesus himself tells us that many will come claiming to be the Messiah--in some cases even able to confuse the elect. So who is the actual fake Messiah?

    Jesus defines him first as the "another" of John 5:43 when He addressed the Jews in Jerusalem says "I who come in my Father's name you reject; but another who comes in his own name, you will receive". In what capacity did the Jews reject Jesus? Messiah and Lord. So in what capacity will they receive the another--based on his claim that he and not Jesus Christ is the Messiah.

    The Messianic claim requires that the Man of Sin be a Jew.

    He is also seen in Daniel 7:8-7:25. Out of the Fourth World Empire of Daniel 7:8 (the Roman Empire) come ten nations. We can identify the location of those nations by reference to Daniel 9:26 where Daniel describes the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD by Titus as having occurred at the hand of the "people of the prince that shall come" who is generally identified as Anti Christ.

    The King James translation using "people" is a little misleading because the underlying original is a Hebrew word which means "tribal or ethic group" so properly read, 9:26 should reference the prince (Anti Christ) coming from the tribal or ethnic group which made up Titus' army in 70 AD when it destroyed the city and the Temple.

    All of the Roman historical sources such as Tacitus identify Titus' army as made up of "levies on the local kings"--all Assyrian ethics. Josephus gives specific descriptions of specific events in the destruction naming names and giving the history of the individual who in every single case are ethnics from Pontius and other areas of ancient Assyria incorporated in the Eastern Roman Empire.

    Returning to Daniel 7: the Anti Christ "who made war with the saints and prevailed against them" in 7:21 emerges in 7:8. Ten nations come out of the Eastern Empire; "there came up among them another little horn" (7:8)who is described in 7:24 as arising from out of the 10 nations but which is "diverse" from them.

    We are looking at the ten nations out of the Eastern Empire and see that there is another nation of people who are "diverse" from those nations but who are "among" them.

    We suggest that eleventh nation is the Palestinians who are among the ten nations of the Eastern Empire but who are diverse from them in that the Palestinians have no national territory of their own and whose government is of the group of people rather than a geographical nation.

    It seems to us that identification of the Man of San, Anti Christ, as an Assyrian ethic Jew coming from the Palestinians, is not unreasonable.

    “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:37 (KJB)

    This is not to address the main point of this piece. I am a fundamental Bible Christian; I believe Jesus Christ is Lord of All and expect to see Him fairly soon. But I am also capable of believing that God created a number of other EBE (Extraterrestrial Biologic Entities), including angels and the devil and his minions; and I don't see that as doing any violence to either the Word or my belief.

    Bible scholars are all generally aware and in agreement that the Bible sets out a timeline that fits perfectly well with events in Genesis all the way back to around 4000 BC. Bishop Usher did this calculation with a pencil and came to 4004; Gerald Faustech (History and Christian Chronology Research); and another IBM computer jock (Tuckermann) have done a more professional and precise job than Usher did coming to essentially the same answers.

    A material problem with this analysis which doesn't receive much attention is the Flood of Noah. The bible gives a relatively precise date--2344BC (+/- a year or two one way or the other) for Noah and the flood. Historical analysts generally accept the fact that there was some major event resulting in death and elimination of much of the population around that date--but not the kind of world wide death of everyone resulting in DNA of one man and his family as ancestor's of us all.

    Those who study the issue have also heard about the Annunaki publicized by Elijah Sitchen who purportedly come from a tenth planet of our Solar System called Naburu (or Planet X); that planet has an extreme orbit that results in its crossing the plane of our solar system only once ever several thousand years.

    Sitchen puts the orbit of Planet X at around 3600 years while admitting that he cannot put a single date to any single passage. Those who have studied his work and other sources think he was wrong.

    The Sumerian tablets credit a passage event with dissolution of the Antartic ice cap causing the flood of Noah.

    Conventional secular Anthropologists credit a similar event occurring at the Younger Dryas Boundary somewhere around 10700 BC to perhaps as early as 11200 BC. The tablets and other sources credit circumstances of the earlier event as also fitting the Bible description of the events of 2344 BC.

    If you accept the Bible date for Noah at 2344; and further accept the proposition that no appearance of Planet X has been seen since, we are 4364-4365 years into an orbit period.

    Working back from the flood of Noah, using 4365 +/-, accept a date around 6700 for Ballard's Black Sea inundation; and use a date of 11074 for the YDB event, you can see a planetary orbit cycle of Planet X of a little more than 4365 years if it arrives this year or next.

    There is now a reference to the Navy Telescope in New Zealand having identified an interplanetary object inbound in January of this year so you might see the current Earth year, perhaps 2022 or 2023 as a year like the time of Noe as referenced by Jesus Christ.

    It should also be noted that there are credible historical physical and cultural evidences of two flood survivor events in a wooden ark which landed, in one case on Mt. Arat and on the other in the mountains of Arat.

    Finally, it isn't exactly clear what event Jesus is referring to as the "coming". Although there is argument about His descent in I Thess 4:16 vs. His return at the end of the Tribulation period, there is not much doubt that the I Thess 4:16-17 event in which believers are caught up together with them [the dead in Christ] is a return which we may be able to expect to occur in the near future.

    If Hitler did not look like the anti-Christ back then, I’m not sure who would.

    No. Hitler did not look like the anti-christ.

    Our first description of anti-christ comes from Jesus Christ himself. In the good news from the Apostle John, in Chapter 5, v. 43, Jesus speaking to the Jews in the Temple said: I who come in the name of the Father you will reject; another who comes in his own name, him you will receive."

    In what capacity did Jesus come to be rejected? Messiah. In order to make that claim, the "another" who comes in his own name, needs to be a Jew to have his claim accepted.

    The translation in Daniel 9:26 of the word presented as "people" is also a little misleading. The underlying word means "tribal or ethnic group"; the prophecy is of destruction of the temple by Titus' army in 70 AD referencing them as ancestor's of the coming prince who we generally understand to be Anti-Christ.

    All of the historical authors are unanimous about the makeup of the army which destroyed the Temple: Tacitus is a good example ("levies on the local kings"); Josephus names names and tells you where the individuals came from--in every single example, the solders who destroyed the Temple were ethnic Assyrians generally from Modern Turkey and Syria.

    Anti-Christ is a Jew who comes from the ethnic Assyrians. If the speculation that he will come from the tribe of Dan is correct, he might be expected to come from the general area where that tribe was relocated South of modern Damascus.

    Look for him coming soon.

    A hearty DITTOS ... and the obamaroid was born in a home for unwed mothers,in Canada.

    I think that is incorrect. I have contacted MHG directly about his view and he has refused to provide any support.

    I do agree that it is quite likely that the birth occurred in Canada; but I think the location was arranged by the father and relatives of the mother who may well have used a false id at the delivery hospital.
