    Ezekiel to Hebrews 11:6
    Wow, these are great.

    I was immediately attracted to the simplicity and serenity of #67, which depicts the Spirit (dove: "Jonah", "Columbia"), but then when I rolled along to #99.

    It was like a blast of 1969 in loud, living color. I'd never scene a robe like that for Christ. Lorenzo was 500+ years ahead of his time! It's too much.

    That's one small step for man,

    one giant leap for mankind.

    Luigi’s sure brings back refreshing memories. I didn’t know the brand was still around. I looked up the website — Luigi’s got started in 1978.

    That fit with my recollection of the general timeframe for the new treat coming to town.

    It stood out way back then such that I even remembered the name to this day, even as a zillion brands, names, and ideas have come and gone.

    From my AI:

    Chiffon is a lightweight fabric which is associated with elegance and luxury. It drapes well and has a shimmery and sheer appearance, resembling a fine net or mesh under a magnifying glass.

    The term “chiffon” literally translates as “cloth” or “rag” in French, but has come to be synonymous with any type of lustrous, sheer fabric woven in a particular style.

    Ezekiel to srmanuel

    I suspect that humanity never stopped eating from the tree of the *knowledge* of good and evil. Oh sure, Adam and Eve got the boot from the garden, but that was so they wouldn’t get their hands on the tree of life and eat from it and live forever.

    Under the circumstances, it makes sense:

    People just can’t resist discovering how something can be used for evil. I mean its one thing to be situationally aware, but another to feast like kings on what the Dark Side has to offer, even to get ideas from that camp (you are what you eat).

    Take a garden tool like a shovel, for example. A simple farmer sees it for all the good it can do, for digging and making planting holes, and for all kinds of projects to make his land a better place.. even for whacking varmints when necessary.

    It’s not even natural for him to consider that he could murder someone with it. In fact, he’s more concerned about accidentally injuring a curious chicken that might sneak up while he’s working.

    It’s like that.

    The Pride flag ain’t a rainbow.

    See there you go. Exactly. It's like a flea market designer handbag.

    The fact is though, that's how they *identify* it. For all intents and purposes, it's a "rainbow" symbol. And that's what really counts, by their own rules.

    These days, a lot of rainbows (that may in fact have 7 colors) show up on children's clothing, toys, and accessories. Just another grooming tactic to normalize the appearance of the pervert symbol. Like a toddler's gonna notice one way or the other, 6 or 7.

    Plausible deniability is worked in as well... what kind of paranoid person would be offended by a simple rainbow? Been used on kids' stuff since forever.

    The FAIL is on full display with the degenerates on multiple levels. That includes the people who are playing Good Cop -- Bad Cop, like the Uniparty. It's not just a political party game.

    Ezekiel to NetAddicted; MadMax, the Grinning Reaper

    >>>I thought they chose April 1 cuz they were declaring themselves fools. I shoulda known better.<<<

    There’s what people do of their own accord for their own twisted reasons, and then there’s the One who’s in charge of the narrative, from above.

    Kind of like how the Megillah is the whole of human history in a nutshell.

    Take rainbow symbol, for example: God sees it as the reminder not to completely flood the place (”Don’t make Me come down there”), yet with all the constant waving well beyond its occurrance in nature... well, that’s just not natural.

    Folks end up attracting negative attention to themselves, and then the cogs start turning about how to clean up the whole mess, ala Sodom.

    And that abused, perverted prefix “trans” — “trans” became as odious as it is ubiquitous. Yet the meaning (beyond, across) of a trans-person is the same as “Hebrew”. Trans... seen in the 20th century name for the Biblical region “beyond Jordan”. Ever haYarden, aka Transjordan.

    That’s nothing you wouldn’t already know. It’s just that the unhinged bad actors are determined to gang up with their thuggy mindset to decree that *transpeople* should basically take over the world.

    *Trans*lation: they should be careful what they ask for, demand. They’re sure gonna get it.

    April Fool’s Day — it does set the tone. 🤓

    Jonah (”dove”) 1

    7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.
    8 Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and whence comest thou? what is thy country? and of what people art thou?
    9 And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land.

    This 'Day of Vengeance' popped up all over the place all of a sudden. Several threads with it in the title. That's not any complaint at all. It's that I don't know what has been posted where, in regards to the phrase itself.

    It's the famous "cut off" point between what was written in Isaiah, and what Jesus read when he announced his arrival on the scene, in the synagogue in Nazareth.

    Isaiah 61

    1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
    2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
    3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
    4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

    Luke 4

    16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
    17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
    18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
    19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
    20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
    21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

    The usual commentaries put the focus on the end of Jesus' earthly days -- on Palm Sunday for the big arrival scene:

    Triumphal entry into Jerusalem

    A group of transgender activists is planning a “Day of Vengeance” in Washington, D.C., for March 31-April 2

    Palm Sunday is on April 2 this year, so it looks like the two references meet up this weekend on account of the "trans" [עִבְרִי ] people.

    Thought I'd make mention of it.

    THIS SAME JESUS, who has been taken from you into heaven, WILL COME BACK IN THE SAME WAY you have seen him go into heaven.

    Outside and above anyone's particular religious beliefs,

    There's a vast, integrated, multi-layered analog in modern times with the mission of Apollo 11/Saturn V. It also links with Apollo 8, Earthrise, and the Genesis reading. And of course the 50th anniversary in 2019, when Apollo 11 had been projected onto the Washington Monument for the big launch.

    I've posted bits and pieces over the years. This stuff could fill book after book, yet it's all very simple. It's sure to come out in due time. Sudden revelation, epiphany: when knowledge and understanding flip over and on in an instant.

    The multiple selections of artwork here (with Jesus' ascending in a white robe) do add to the "Apollo Effect".

    In the meantime,

    Here's a very small example from the VLF transmitter (Very Large File), concerning the tabernacle of David that is fallen...

    Amos 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

    ... because here's where it all started, with the development of the Saturn V and its Garden of Cyrus (quincunx) pattern of the engines:

    For a deep visual perspective, here are a couple of photos from the Wikipedia page:


    Google street view even walks inside the Davidson Center, where the visitor is greeted by the engine display overhead, at the base of the... horizontal model. The rocket stages (1, 2, 3) are marked as the teaching route continues onto the Moon, which is encircled by the famous announcement of the ages.

    It's like the form of the letter lamed:

    A three-stage rocket ship soaring into outer space.
    Man's aspiration to understand the universe.

    A heart of a wise man ascending to comprehend the wisdom of God.
    Learning in order to teach, learning in order to do.

    Divine inspiration; the higher Shechinah.
    Prophetic imagination breaking through the limitations of rational intellect.

    On that note,

    Apollo 11 launched on July 16th, 1969, which was the 1st of Av -- the beginning of the Nine Days that ended on Tisha B'Av with the splashdown of the CM Columbia ("dove").

    The 1st of Av is also a key date in Jewish history because 123:

    Aaron the first High Priest, brother of Moses and Miriam, passed away at age 123 on the 1st of Av of the year 2487 from creation (1274 BCE). This is the only yahrzeit (date of passing) explicitly mentioned in the Torah (Numbers 33:38).

    America will necessarily have to be destroyed before it can be resurrected.

    It's analog time:

    The years of 46 presidents was this DS Establishment in building, and Trump's going to rear it up in three days ["日", Mikka]?

    But he spoke of the house of MAGA, We the People.

    (Japanese, from Japan 日本 -- the place named for being the origin 本 of the Sun/day 日, relative to... China.)


    Let's see, 1789 - 2024 = 235 years, or *47*, x 5. Five Stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Someone obviously has a better playing strategy, a trump.

    The 45th president also reminded those in the crowd that America was a “very pivotal point,” encouraging them to “evict” Joe Biden from the White House in his bid to make America great again.

    Oops. So let it be written, so let it be done.

    (For anyone squarely on team pun -- Isaac's team -- the generic count for 3 is "san", as in 1, 2, 3.. ichi, ni, san...)

    JO-san. Elect-ions from a higher source.

    The Dark Side (DS) has convinced folks that America is nowhere in Bible prophecy, unless of course it has something to do with evil (e.g. Babylon), such that she will be destroyed.

    That way when a man named Trump would come along, few would catch on to the events happening in broad daylight that they're all paradoxically fixated upon.

    "Trump" -- the Biblical terms are "venahafoch hu", and "neztach", because The Donald never repents of anything ever!

    Eh, he's gotta turn all understanding upside-down first and be crucified in the court of the press and public opinion, before anyone's going to accept the Messiah no one expects much less wants (the maverick, *anti*-establishment solution to business -- the compassionate, personalized, direct care model for starters.)

    What good are the signs if no one can read the signs?

    So many positive waves, aerial photographs.

    I’m sure there was more to this story. They just used this as a reason...

    Amazing what will appear in the news for the oddest reasons. It's always analog time because the whole world is Hebrew school.

    He noted the curriculum covers human reproduction and anatomy and anatomy in fifth grade, and that the studies do cover "Michelangelo's "David" sculpture and other works of art that depict the human form."

    Indeed, the most famous statue in the world, depicting "Gentile" David. 🤫😂😂

    Michelangelo's David is also famous for his oversized hands, and head! Kind of like...

    And his origin is even more rough and tumble. The stone that became David had been rejected by the first two sculptors for being...

    ...flawed and difficult to work with.

    Yet as for Michelangelo -- Can DO!

    And the rest is history.

    Not literally, but I'm a big fan of the concepts, analogies (parables).

    Actually, this stuff is way more literal than people might suspect. Like the famous point on Jewish sites that G-D is not mentioned anywhere in the Megillah -- the Scroll of Esther (Esther: "star", "hidden"), yet...

    The star [of the Messiah] is located on the side of "the scroll" with the tuning pegs for strings G - D:

    I really love the amazing story behind this song -- the brothers discovered an old cassette tape that was in really bad shape, and found a way to salvage it, to bring it back from the dead so to speak.
