A Christmas message from Jehovah

Hello again.

As most of my readers know I listen to the bible each day and play it on a random shuffle basis, so verses are played randomly. I always reset it each day too, to keep it totally random.

As I've noted in previous posts, very often the first or second verse to play, or even a run of verses, will be pertinent to my scripture studies or to my own life, or to something I've been talking about online or in real  life. I am beyond being surprised now at how Yah uses this mechanism to teach me, so as always, praise to Him for being here with me, helping me learn and grow in wisdom regarding His ways.

Just two days ago I was chatting (via Twitter messenger) with a brother in Toronto, when I mentioned Christmas, as you can see in the image below. This brother (JV we'll call him) didn't heed my warnings about Christmas being a pagan festival, around the winter solstice, not at the time of Christ's birth, not one of Yah's commanded festivals, and something scripture specifically warns us against.


I had explained to JV back at Christmas that it was a sin, that Yah warns against it, and I recall I had provided some links to read about its pagan origin. Any God-fearing believer would have wanted to do their own research online, as well as study scripture. But JV, and other brothers I know, were happy to follow their hearts. Here's what JV said back on Christmas day.


I won't comment on JV's responses there, but the same sort of response was received by two of the men who attended my own baptism at a blog one of them writes, as you'll see below. They go by the names 'Aeoli' and 'Koanic', whilst I am 'glosoli' and another God-fearing brother and friend comments as 'Mycroft Jones'.










Go and do a search of scripture for 'culture war' and see what you find. There are far more than two of us God-fearing Christians out here, but the modern church and its flock don't want to hear our messages, don't want to actually walk as Yeshua walked (1 John 2:6), not to be perfect, as our Father in heaven is perfect (Matt 5:48). They prefer to follow pagan ways and their own hearts.
My comments are no longer allowed at that blog, it's the Churchian way, when Fake Christians hear scripture telling them to do something, or not to do it, and their heart prefers to do what they desire instead, they react badly. In fact they're simply rebelling against Yah Himself, as I am just sharing His word and calling for repentance. It's just a modern-day example of what we see all the way through scripture.

Talking about scripture, and the title of this post, within a couple of minutes of the messages above with JV from two days ago I fired up my bible audio and the bluetooth speaker, and as always I wondered what would be the first chapter. Well, I was not disappointed, in fact I was highly elated, as it was in fact Jeremiah 10 that played, you may have seen it referred to above. Here is me telling JV the news.




There are 1189 chapters in the bible apparently (according to online sources, I haven't sat and counted them), so there's a one in 1189 chance that this chapter would appear 'randomly'. Guess what? It isn't random, Yah abides with me, he knows that I'd been mulling writing a blog post on this subject, but hadn't done so, so He gives me a nudge and sends a sign.

Now, if I were JV, or Aeoli, or Koanic, I'd read this and I would seriously reconsider the path they're on. I am saddened, very saddened, that two men who attended my baptism and helped to introduce me to my faith a few years ago, are both so far from Yah, full of their own ideas and with zero regard for His authority. Let's be frank, if they continue to ignore Yah's will they will not be resurrected to meet Yeshua, they will burn with the other dead at Judgement Day.

I pray, I hope, that these men will get down on their knees today and pray for forgiveness, and with real fear of Yah will then seek His ways, ask for His wisdom, and follow His guidance, it's in scripture, it's easy to do, His yoke is easy to bear.
Here's the pertinent section of Jeremiah 10, see if you think it leaves any doubt about Christmas and pagan festivals:
The Sovereignty of God

1Hear the word that the LORD speaks to you, O house of Israel. 2This is what the LORD says:
“Do not learn the ways of the nations
or be terrified by the signs in the heavens,
though the nations themselves are terrified by them.
3For the customs of the peoples are worthless;
they cut down a tree from the forest;
it is shaped with a chisel
by the hands of a craftsman.
4They adorn it with silver and gold
and fasten it with hammer and nails,
so that it will not totter.
5Like scarecrows in a cucumber patch,
their idols cannot speak.
They must be carried
because they cannot walk.
Do not fear them, for they can do no harm,
and neither can they do any good.”
6There is none like You, O LORD.
You are great, and Your name is mighty in power.
7Who would not fear You, O King of nations?
This is Your due.
For among all the wise men of the nations,
and in all their kingdoms,
there is none like You.
8But they are altogether senseless and foolish,
instructed by worthless idols made of wood!
9Hammered silver is brought from Tarshish,
and gold from Uphaz—
the work of a craftsman
from the hands of a goldsmith.
Their clothes are blue and purple,
all fashioned by skilled workers.
10But the LORD is the true God;
He is the living God and eternal King.
The earth quakes at His wrath,
and the nations cannot endure His indignation.
11Thus you are to tell them: “These gods, who have made neither the heavens nor the earth, will perish from this earth and from under these heavens.”

That's it for this post, praise the Lord for being here with me and for nudging me, and for the friendship of my brother Mycroft.  I beg His mercy for my procrastination. Amen.

Another miracle, plus a sign from Yah

Hello.

It's been a while since I wrote something for my blog, although I have been writing for another project for Yah, the soon-to-be-launched Law website. So this is a quick post sharing a couple of nice interactions with The Most High I have had recently.

Even though I have now had a fair few of these, I am filled with awe and joy each and every time, it's not something I'll ever take for granted, I recognise it's a huge treat to see He's with me, giving me little nudges and signs.

So, the miracle first, and I will copy in below some Twitter screen shots which cover the circumstances:








Twitter wasn't loading well on my phone at that moment, as I'd just arrived in Morocco perhaps, where wifi isn't always good. So here are a few more images of both tweets and a whatsapp communication I had just after I'd seen the miracle, with the miraculous image itself immediately below:





As an aside, the phrase 'God is love' is misunderstood by nearly everyone I think. I'll re-phrase it to reflect the correct meaning:

Jehovah is what he prefers

Once you realise this, the coherence of faith in Him and the messiah translating into perfect obedience, being perfect as He who is in heaven (Yah) is, and walking as His son, the messiah did, it all makes sense.

So, as you can tell from the images above, I was very excited to have this sign, to see this miracle, as I'd only just grasped what 'agape' really meant, and I think the miracle was a sign from Yah that I had correctly grasped the concept of it all. Praise be to The Most High Jehovah, as always, I do not deserve His attention, and these gifts, but I am truly grateful to Him.

Next, a much more personal sign from Yah, I think this is the first sign I've had that was obviously about my own personal situation, and I was both amazed by it, and I acted upon it, and I am very grateful to Yah for it.

I'll need to very briefly explain that my parents cast me out of their lives just over two years ago as they didn't like the 'new me', a man of faith. I never once preached to them, but I did talk about what I was learning, and as baby boomers, they thought they knew it all and didn't like learning Biblical truths, and just didn't like hearing about scripture or faith at all, given that they'd long ago lost whatever faith they may have had. At the time I was shocked by their reaction, but now I realise it's to be expected and in fact Jesus predicted that he would cause divisions between family members.

I continued to honour my parents however, as I waived a five-figure debt they owed me, and there was still sporadic contact via phone and text messages, but we kept our distance. Also, I forgave them for their actions. My mother started to push for a meeting last year, but there was ample evidence that they hadn't repented of their dislike of my faith, as she mentioned in a letter that I should 'leave my faith at the door' should I visit them, to avoid arguments. Obviously, that's impossible, as my faith is not like a coat you just take off and hang up, it is a part of me, Yah abides with me now, permanently.

So, I had just turned down a request to visit them which arrived in mid-December, when I received the sign from Yah the next day. Also, the night before I had a dream which involved my parents which was a happy dream, unlike the many unpleasant dreams I'd had where they were present in the previous two years. So, here is the sign, I was on my PC at the time, and I must have been rushed, as I literally photographed the screen, rather than taking a screenshot using a programme, but it's still legible:


To the best of my knowledge this is the only spam comment that had appeared at this blog, and I'd been reading it and the comments for around 2 years or so. So it was unusual in that respect. From my perspective it was incredible, as the woman's name mentioned in the comment is my mother's name, both her forename and surname too. The chances of this comment, with this name, appearing in a first-time spam comment on a blog I follow, just a day or two after another request for a meeting, and the day after a pleasant dream, are too slight to be considered a random occurrence. The comment was deleted the next day by the blog owner, but I have copied below a comment I made about the matter.


I will be honest, I really didn't want to see my parents, that may sound hard-hearted and callous, but I'm in a new better family now, and my fleshly parents are related to the former me, prior to my re-birth in Christ. Given the way they'd behaved, I did not see any appeal at all in returning to the potential for yet more drama and division. 

Yet, I'm always fully obedient to Yah. So I didn't hesitate and I actually sent the image above to my mother, told her it was a sign from God to me, and that if they still wanted to see me, that I would visit. One doesn't just ignore these signs, unless one is foolish or headstrong. I used to be headstrong, but now I am fully compliant with the will of Yah. So, there was a delay in my mother replying, as I imagine they struggled with accepting it as a sign from Yah. However, we did meet recently and there was no trouble, so hopefully they will be able to accept me as I am from now on.

Either way, thanks to Yah for caring enough to show me this sign and give me nudge. I laugh when people say Yah is far away from us because He doesn't like us. Speak for yourselves sinners, when you're fully obedient and walk as Messiah walked, Yah couldn't be closer, as he literally abides within you. Can you imagine what that feels like? It's freely available to all, just accept Jesus was the Messiah, and then live according to Yah's rules. Sounds easy, and in truth it is easy, but you have to perhaps ditch your own ego and bad teaching that may have deceived you. Satan wants you to suffer eternal death remember, so he will encourage you to eat swine or shrimp or to celebrate pagan festivals, and make you think it doesn't matter, and you'll perhaps think it's OK too, it's just a small thing, and doesn't matter you'll think, you're so smart. Wrong. Blind fools, bang you're dead, burned in the Lake of Fire. Notch another one up to Satan.

'What, what's that? Unclean food laws, no, they don't apply any more' I can hear you screaming at your computer. Modern times, no need for all that nonsense (don't tell the Godless Chinese, just seen their swine herds decimated, and now a pestilence hitting them, as they eat dogs, bats, snakes, you-name-it). Yes, I retort, apart from the fact that messiah tells us that not a jot nor tittle of the law will pass til all has been fulfilled (i.e. a new heaven and earth appear with Yah amongst us here), we have a prophecy in Isaiah that confirms, at the End Times, swine eaters will perish:

Final Judgments against the Wicked
15For behold, the LORD will come with fire—
His chariots are like a whirlwind—
to execute His anger with fury
and His rebuke with flames of fire.
16For by fire and by His sword,
the LORD will execute judgment on all flesh,
and many will be slain by the LORD.
17“Those who consecrate and purify themselves to enter the groves—to follow one in the center of those who eat the flesh of swine and vermin and rats—will perish together,” declares the LORD. 
 
I listen to the Bible a lot on random shuffle, and as I'm working on my theonomy project currently, it's amazing how many chapters from the prohets (like the one above) have dropped in, Yah constantly gives me what I need from scripture when I need it. Let those who have ears, hear.


I'll conclude with some further scripture:

'By this we can be sure that we have come to know Him: if we keep His commandments. 4If anyone says, “I know Him,” but does not keep His commandments, he is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But if anyone keeps His word, the love of God has been truly perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him: 6Whoever claims to abide in Him must walk as Jesus walked.

Jesus did not eat swine, nor did he eat shrimp, nor did he celebrate pagan festivals. Why do you?

'Anyone born of God refuses to practice sin, because God’s seed abides in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10By this the children of God are distinguished from the children of the devil: Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother. 

 'If anyone confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16And we have come to know and believe the love that God has for us. God is love; whoever abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 17In this way, love has been perfected among us, so that we may have confidence on the day of judgment; for in this world we are just like Him'

I explained above that 'love' used above is 'agape', meaning 'what Yah prefers'. So now you know the missing ingredient, if you don't have Yah abiding with you, if you think He's far away and hates us: you're following your own heart, your own puny IQ, rather than His will. Not at all a wise approach.

Two Years Old

It's been a while since I wrote a post, as I've been busy and didn't feel any specific issue was driving me to write a post in recent weeks, but I've been busy speaking for God and Jesus on Twitter nearly every day, and you're welcome to follow me there. 

I wanted to write today though as it's the two year anniversary of the day I was baptised in the Welsh sea near Pembroke in South West Wales, the land of my fathers. I could easily write a whole post reminiscing about that day, but I won't, I'll just say that it was really good, perfect in every way in fact. Here is the bay, Freshwater East, so beautiful.



I want to give thanks to the man who baptised me, an American man I'd met back in December 2016 when he was visiting the UK, and I believe that a very powerful prayer he said for me back then was clearly heard by Jehovah, and has resulted in the Lord giving me a passion for His laws, commands and statutes, and an open heart to learn His ways. So, thanks to LBJ, that was the first time someone had prayed for me, and he asked God to open my heart and to use me, and that's what's happened.

Oddly, I always had a feeling as I grew up that I was going to die at a young age, and that's how it turned out, as I died two years ago as the old me, and was born again in Christ, so I'm now a toddler!

I wanted to use this post to update readers on the dreams and visions and signs I had back in February regarding a stock market crash. I wasn't given any clarity on the dates back then (or so I thought), and so my trades all perished worthless and I lost a very large sum of money, the whole of the sale proceeds of my home and more besides. Whilst this was briefly painful, I realised it was all a test of faith, so back in July I started to take some more 'crash' trading positions, as I don't believe that God intends me to lose money in this test, He wants me to make money, as I had committed a significant proportion of it to a theonomy project, and also for a project to call my nation to repentance before it's too late.

I wrote a post about the strange night I had when I was able to derive two dates using my grandfather's service number and various squares and cubes of the number 7. The first date I derived was September 7th, so I assumed that related to my baptism of course. That date didn't contain a year, whereas the second date (5th April 2021) did.

However, it now seems likely that today marks the weekend before the stock market crash wave begins. Time will show us, but if the date is pertinent to the crash, we should see 11-12 trading days ahead, from Monday 9th September until 23rd-24th September, when the stock market will drop by around 40%, with the final two days seeing around half of that loss take place. Now, I could be wrong again about the timing, but I am following the stock market chart pattern over the past 6 weeks, and it is currently looking very similar to the charts just before the crashes in 1929 and 1987 (yes, they both had a very similar pattern). So I do think it will happen now. Millions of pounds to spend on promoting the laws, commands and statutes of Jehovah, as well as the saving grace of the Lord Jesus for the occasions when we slip up, as we all do sometimes.

It's interesting (but not surprising to me) that just this past week I have discovered that there are many others like me who speak for Jehovah and Jesus on Twitter and who seek to obey His laws and commands, including the Sabbath. Apart from a brother and friend in Canada, I knew no one else that shared my views, which mirror the teaching of Jesus Himself, but it's very uplifting to discover lots of brothers and sisters who stick to the law, whilst recognising that we are freed from its death penalty (for our souls) when we sometimes transgress.

I would like to share a few of these accounts should you wish to follow them or read their thoughts:

All of the above are worth reading on a daily basis, all are obedient brothers and sisters, helping to fight against those who preach lawlessness on Twitter.

Also, for those of you who (like me) are unable to attend an obedient truthful and faithful church, brother Mick shared a ministry with me that posts live-streams of their sermons, and has an archive of previous sermons. I have only listened to part of one so far, they are a Messianic Jewish synagogue, but the sermon and the preacher were excellent, so I look forward to watching many more in the years ahead:

https://livestream.com/byi

I want to finish by saying thank you to my God Jehovah, and to His Son Jesus Christ. Having ignored them for the best part of 50 years, I am humbled that they answered my call to get to know them so quickly. I am humbled that they have shown me so much in these past three years, and changed my life completely, from one with virtually no real meaning and purpose, to one filled with passion and zeal for their Kingdom, and bringing to life the Lord's prayer, so that His will is done, here on earth, as it is in Heaven.

Tribulations await us all, of that I am sure, but I am eager to face them and to stand and speak for Jehovah and Jesus, and against Satan and his lies. Every person on earth will have the opportunity to repent of their sins and their disbelief before Jesus returns, no one will have any excuses, and the best way to love they neighbour is to help him/her to turn away from sin and disbelief, and to turn toward God and Jesus and their laws and salvation. Time is short however, I have a very strong feeling that the current situation here on earth will not be tolerated for too long before Jesus returns.

What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

By chance I had a few interactions on Twitter recently that happened to follow a similar theme, that theme being supposed-Christians attempting to be holier than Jehovah by creating additional sins that don't exist, or misinterpreting sins that are mentioned, and imposing a higher standard than Jehovah demands.

I'll start with a post that had a list of sins that all Christians were supposedly bound to acknowledge and speak against:

As you can see from the image above, I responded by highlighting three errors made by the female poster. The orginal poster didn't bother to reply, but another person did, and here are the screenshots of the conversation (sadly, as I made my final point, and he had no response, he blocked me, meaning that some of his messages are no longer available, but hopefully you will get the gist by reading my replies:

The first topic we discussed was 'quick to anger'. I maintained that this was not in itself a sin, but is best avoided, as it can lead to sin and other errors. I pointed out that there are plenty of very righteous men in the Bible that become angry on occasion. It is a part of human nature for everyone, with the only variable being the speed with which anger can arise. The Holy Spirit certainly slows down the capacity to become angry. The point is simply that the poster was trying to define it as a sin, which is nonsense, and we Christians should not add or subtract from the laws of Jehovah.

Also within the list of sins above was masturbation. I pointed out that, again, nowhere is this mentioned as a sin in the Bible, even though Jehovah did provide some very clear laws on the subject of sexual behaviour.  Here are some screenshots of the conversation, with the first one coming after I'd mentioned the subject of not adding to or taking away from Jehovah's laws:

 
When I woke up the next day, this person 'Daniel Swaf' had blocked me. I hope that he's considered the example I gave and repented of his view. It's truly an amazing feature of our faith and the gift of the Holy Spirit that someone can be a homosexual and yet be able to successfully subdue his desires so as to avoid sinning. I remember feeling aggravated when I first read the tweets of the homosexual man, but before reading of his ability to deny his nature thanks to God, and then being mightily impressed with the power of God. It would be ridiculous to condemn him for sinning if he masturbated, as it would be to condemn anyone for masturbating, or for becoming angry.

I also had another interaction with a female on Twitter recently on exactly the same subject, where she tweeted along the lines of 'if you're admitting that you're gay, you may think you're a Christian, but you're not'. When challenged that sodomy was the sin, rather than being homosexual, she blocked me quite quickly, and perhaps also for the reason that she was regularly quoting female preachers and encouraging other women to divorce as she had. A great example of a fake Christian in fact, getting it wrong by trying to be too holy on one subject, and getting it wrong by ignoring laws that didn't suit modern women.

All of these interactions at the same time led to this post, so I hope it helps you to stick to the laws, do what Jehovah commands as best you can, but please don't add to the laws, nor omit laws that you think are ill-suited to modern times. Just stick with what Jehovah gave us as instructions, He knows precisely what we need, and we are advised not to judge others anyway.

Watchman Warning

Time is short, so I need to give my readers advance warning of some of the troubles that will be hitting the world over the next decade or so. Most of these troubles are directly as a result of Jehovah's righteous wrath being meted out on humanity, all of it will be totally deserved.

The item I am going to cover today is simply a factor of one of His righteous laws reaching its appointed time. Even though puny humans decide to totally ignore this law all over the world, and have ignored it for most of recorded history, it doesn't stop Jehovah from applying His law anyway. I wonder if I am the only person to have spotted this particular example? It was one of those incredible moments of revelation when I spotted it last year, yet further proof that Jehovah is in total control, despite humans perpetually disobeying Him.

Here is some scripture:

'The Year of Jubilee

8And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. 9Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. 10And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
 13In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. 14And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another: 15According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee: 16According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee. 17Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God.'
Jehovah demands that all property (including money) is returned to its original owner at this Fifty Year Jubilee. This law is to remind us (I believe) that all of what we own is never really ours here on earth, and Jehovah states as much here:

'The Law of Redemption
 23The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me. 24And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.'
I wonder how many humans grasp this point? A few perhaps, but not many. It's all His, not ours, we are just temporary custodians. For this reason, He does not allow possessions loaned to others to remain in the others' hands for ever, but sets a limit on the loan, and demands redemption in the 50th year.

So, that's the Law of the Jubilee Year (or a portion of it). As usual, Jehovah promises to bless and take care of His people if they adhere to His law, as He's a loving and righteous God:


The Blessing of Obedience
18Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety. 19And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety. 20And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase: 21Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years. 22And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.
Trust in Jehovah, obey Him too, and you'll be well looked after. Not much to ask is it, and the rewards last into eternity.

So, you may be wondering when I am going to get to the point of this post, my Watchman Warning for the near future. Here it is.

The Fifty Year Jubilees are still running, like clockwork, and the next one is due in 2032. The run in to that year will see the application of Jubilee rules for the value of property, debts and money itself, with values decreasing as we move nearer and nearer to that year.

I work in the investment world, and I have long known that the world was headed for trouble in the early 2030s, but when I was reading through the Old Testament last year I realised that the same thing happens every fifty years, like clockwork (of course) and inevitably will happen again fifty years after he previous occurence.

So, these days, what is the 'asset' that is loaned more than any other? Unlike in Biblical times, we now live in a very financialised world, so the asset that has been loaned like never before on earth is money, otherwise known as 'credit'. Most of you save in 'credits'. The rules state that the money needs to be returned to the lender by that fiftieth year in 2032, but we know that people and governments just ignore the law of Jehovah, so let's have a quick look at the last two Fifty Year Jubilees to see what happened. The previous two years were 1982 and 1932, and I did some research online and was able to see the cycle repeat back into the 1700s as the world started to industrialise. I am sure the cycle of this law traces all the way back to Biblical times too, and nearly every instance will be driven by Jehovah rather than by nations obeying their God.

I think most people will know that 1932 was a terrible year, the depths of the Great Depression, and huge amounts of loans of money were written off by the lenders as it couldn't be repaid. The stock market crash that began in 1929 finally reached a bottom in 1932 (on the 8th day of the 7th month as it happened):

I will cover some of the non-financial aspects of the period in the 1930s and the 13 years ahead of us in another post, but for now I will stick to the 'money' side of things. So, 1932 was a time of money/debt destruction, and those lenders who did not heed Jehovah's law ended up losing huge sums, hundreds of banks and businesses went bust in that time. So what about 1982, I doubt as many people are aware of the problems at that time as they are of the Great Depression, but it was very similar, and one again, huge debts were the cause of the problem.

In the 1950s til the 1970s many governments ran up huge levels of debt, they thought they could keep on racking up the debts with no upper limits. Jehovah won't allow that, so there was a ten-year period of high prices and government debts became nearly worthless, and many currencies themselves lost significant amounts of their purchasing power as a result. This is best shown using a chart of the US treasury interest rates:

The worst of this period was around the year-end of 1981 into early 1982. High rates on government bonds (and other debt instruments) means that the value of the underlying bond has plunged, as we would expect to see as we head into a jubilee year. Prices of commodities exploded too, as investors the world over ran away from holding the US dollar and US debts and instead sought real physical assets. Please note that these interest rates and bond values were not set by the Federal Reserve, but by Jehovah, via the markets. Stock markets in the ten year period leading into 1982 were flat nominally, but investors lost around 75% in real terms, because inflation rates averaged around 8-10% for over 10 years. Once again, humans used usury to excess, and ignored Jehovah's laws, but He saw that His will was done anyway, humans could do nothing but watch and suffer, and serve them right too.

So, as we head into 2032, I expect to see very similar problems cropping up, but it'll be even worse than the 1930s and the 1970s, as debt levels are beyond ridiculous these days. We have a combined bubble in nearly everything from stock markets to corporate debt to government bonds and to property. The value (in real terms) of all of these assets will plummet, and so will the buying power of your money, as debts are wiped out and once again the investment world rushes to invest in real physical assets. The impact on your lives will be huge, as governments around the world effectively go bust, many through the hyperinflation of their currencies to worthlessness, many through actual defaults on their debts. The assets that make up your pension funds will crash in real value, so your pensions will become as good as worthless. Life as you know it will come to an end, as we have ignored Jehovah's laws, especially as regards usury to one's kinsmen, and as regards redeeming property in an orderly fashion every fifty years.

The purpose of this post is to glorify Jehovah and His always sensible and righteous laws, and to warn anyone who reads this of what lies ahead. We caught a glimpse of the issues we could face back in 2008-09, but that was just a trial run for what lies ahead. Things are likely to get really nasty as people the world over (in the developed world) finally reach a huge day of reckoning, and see that debt cannot be increased to eternity, and governments do have to limit their spending. Few will grasp the reasons behind the collapse, so there will be a lot of anger and unrest I suspect. Prepare accordingly.

There is a way to work to Jehovah's law and return the money you have loaned in the very near future, and instead of holding that money as your savings, you could instead hold an asset that has no creditor, but it is truly yours, fully bought and paid for. That asset is likely to increase greatly in value as the value of money plunges. I am willing to share the details of this asset to Christian brothers and sisters, but not publicly, as I don't want to help our enemies at all. So, leave a comment down below and we'll find a way to communicate privately if you need to know.

Perhaps also stock up on some tinned food too though, for reasons to be explained in an upcoming post.

In conclusion, there are thousands of puny humans who make their livings by peddling debt-based investments, and millions who see no issues with unlimited usury to their kinsmen, and billions who choose to ignore Jehovah's Fifty Year Jubilee law. All of these people really do deserve the tribulations and suffering that lies ahead, and I hope and pray that one day soon, the world will repent of its evil ways, and learn to love our God Jehovah, and obey His laws, so that He can bless us again.

If we don't, the tribulations due in the next 13 years are likely to be far worse than any of you can imagine, as His patience is not infinite, and we know He will send His Son back to take control eventually, maybe sooner than we might imagine. Are you ready?

Judgement Day

We all know it's coming, those of us who are Christians look forward to it, those who have no faith don't even consider it.

Here's a short fictional tale about a fictional Church of England pastor called Brian, and his experience as he faces the Lord Jesus Christ on Judgement Day. This story has a basis in a recent encounter I had with someone, surely an encounter arranged by Jehovah to enable me to write this very post.

-----------------------------------------------------

Brian had thought about this day for many decades whilst alive. He had been a Church of England minister, eventually promoted to Bishop. He enjoyed the job very much, serving the Lord and making a decent living too. He enjoyed preaching on Sundays and was justifiably proud of his deep knowledge of the text of the Bible. He had imagined that Judgement Day would be a celebratory moment for him, as the Lord Jesus would surely warmly welcome him into heaven, where much treasure and an exalted position amongst the Saints awaited.

Brian was called before Jesus, and was surprised that he suddenly felt a bit nervous. He bowed to the Lord, who then asked Brian a few questions. The first was simply why Brian felt he deserved entrance into heaven. Brian gave the stock answer that the vast majority of Christians surely know is the only reason why they are assured entry:

' I am a wretched man Lord, and a sinner, but I have faith in the mercy of God and I have long believed in the salvation from death that You Lord gave me by dying for my sins on the cross'.

Brian felt his nerves ease as he spoke these words, as he had 100% confidence that his belief in Jesus as the Son of God who died for all who believe and have faith in Him.

Sadly for Brian, there was then a follow-up question from the Lord Jesus, and it concerned the Ten Commandments, the bedrock of Christian Law, and a set of commands that all Christians know very well and strive to obey. Brian was asked by the Lord Jesus why he had never remembered and observed the weekly Sabbath on a Saturday?

Brian felt his heart-rate suddenly increase, but he responded with scripture and his own reasoning, which he'd found worked well for him during his life, especially as a Church of England pastor and Bishop:

'Lord, I have always worshiped you and your Father on Sundays, and have taught my flock to do the same. We know that the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath, and that you declared yourself  Lord of the Sabbath, and also we read about you defending your disciples who were admonished in error by the Pharisees for plucking the heads of grain on the Sabbath. So, I have adopted Sunday as the Sabbath, the Lord's Day, in accord with early church fathers'.

The Lord Jesus recited some scripture to Brian by way of His response:

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
 17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Brian suddenly felt a great wave of panic and nausea wash over him. He had been a bishop of the Church of England, so he'd known that he was taking a risk by allowing female pastors, by allowing women to speak and preach in church, by celebrating same-sex relationships and many other issues that cropped up as the world spiralled into sin and iniquity in the end times. But he'd not given much thought to the Sabbath, as he'd always just assumed that it had been a Jewish thing, that was replaced by the Sunday worship in early Christian Roman times.

He was led away, literally in tears and unable to walk without assistance, as he felt faint and still very nauseous. His mind was scrambled, he was totally devastated, and knew that he now faced death, rather than an eternity in heaven with the Saints. He knew it was too late to save himself, and he cursed himself for his stupidity and arrogance in ignoring one of the Ten Commandments for his entire life, when there was no Biblical justification for this omission.  He wished he could turn the clock back and start again, so that he could have the chance to repent of his pride and stupidity, and he wished that somehow, at some point in his life, he had taken a moment to consider this matter seriously, to consider God's word, rather than to just go with early Roman tradition.

BANG.

It was at that moment that he remembered a man he had happened to sit beside on a train one afternoon in the Spring of 2019, for only 30 minutes, and that man had made some small talk which resulted in a conversation about obedience to Jehovah. That man was a born-again Christian, and had challenged Brian in the few minutes they were waiting to depart the train about the terrible state of the Church of England, and how far away it was from the Bible's teachings. He remembered his glib reply to that man 'the Bible isn't the authority, God is the authority'.

He remembered vividly how the man had waited on a platform, even as his train pulled in, and had challenged Brian about ignoring the authority of Jehovah by not remembering and observing the Sabbath, and he remembered his even more glib reply 'the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath'.

He felt a huge physical pain all over his body, as he remembered that the man had asked his name just as he boarded his train, and finally he remembered that this man had written a post on his blog about the vital importance of obeying God and remembering His Sabbath on the seventh day, and had sent him a link to the blog post, to give him a chance to repent, and to call others to repentance.

His last memory was that he had read the blog post and, at the time, had dismissed it as the writings of a modern-day Pharisee, and he thought no more about the matter until this very moment. He now realised that he had lived his life as a modern-day Pharisee, a hypocrite, a serpent, duped by Satan and his followers, leading people away from obedience to Jehovah, dealing instead in iniquity, leading them to their eternal deaths. He sank to his knees, totally distraught, as all of his strength suddenly ebbed away, and he felt the life-force quickly leaving his body. He couldn't breathe, his heart stopped beating, and he collapsed.

And then he was dead, for eternity.

THE END
----------------------------------------
Edit 5th January 2020

Whilst the links below accurately explain that none of these pieces of scripture refer to the Sabbath, they all make a mistake in their explanations of 'certain days'.

5 One man esteemeth one [feast] day above another: another esteemeth every [feast] day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he does not regard it

 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink [offerings], or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

 The correct explanation of the above scripture is that newly converted gentiles in Colossia were being judged by their neighbours, still pagans, for observing Jehovah's Feast Days (NB, they are God's feast days, NOT Israel's or the Jews' feast days. So, Paul is telling these new Christians to ignore criticism and to follow God's will. These Feast days are not ceremonial, they are part of our covenant with God, and remind us of His great works throughout history, for Israel, and then for all those in the world who come to have faith in His only-begotten son, the messiah, Jesus Christ.

I only became aware of our obligations in regards to these Feast Days in September, and so I did observe the autumn feast days, and they were a great blessing. My baptism was during one of these periods too, and my 50th birthday.

So, don't let anyone tell you these feast days no longer apply, just quote the following verse to them:

'16Then all the survivors from the nations that came against Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of Hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.d 17And should any of the families of the earth not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of Hosts, the rain will not fall on them. 18And if the people of Egypt will not go up and enter in, then rain will not fall on them; this will be the plague with which the LORD strikes the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. 19This will be the punishment of Egypt and of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.'


The Woman Persecuted

13And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle to fly from the presence of the serpent to her place in the wilderness, where she was nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.
15Then from the mouth of the serpent spewed water like a river to overtake the woman and sweep her away in the torrent. 16But the earth helped the woman and opened its mouth to swallow up the river that had poured from the dragon’s mouth. 17And the dragon was enraged at the woman, and went to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea.b

You will notice that when the Lord Jesus has returned and won his battles, and is reigning over the whole of the earth for 1,000 years, at that time, the Feast of Tabernacles will be observed by the whole planet, and any who ignore the feast day will be suitably punished.

You may also notice, in Revelation 12, that the dragon persecutes those of the church who still keep the commandments of God, not just the ten commandments, but all that He commanded when He gave us His perfect law. Anyone not keeping those commandments, out of choice, or because they have been deceived, will have a moment of terrible realisation when they are omitted from the first resurrection of the faithful and obedient, and then face the second resurrection as sinners.

So, I strongly urge you all to follow God's commands, including the Sabbath, feast days, dietary laws, all of it. Nothing was cast away except the ceremonial portions, including sacrifices, thanks to the one-time sacrifice of the messiah Jesus Christ.

-----------------------------  


Some reading material is noted below that may help readers to consider their future lives, and whether or not they will observe the Sabbath. Firstly, read the Bible, you will not find a single instruction to abandon the weekly seventh-day Sabbath. You will however find plenty of statements and parables from Jesus Himself on the importance of the Law and obedience.

Many modern Christians are confused when they say 'we're not under the Law any more'. They think they can pick and choose the bits of the Law they like. Well, no you can't, not when it comes to the Ten Commandments. 'Not under the Law' simply means we've been freed from the curse of death that would otherwise afflict all of humanity, as we all err and sin occasionally. Even when it comes to observing the Sabbath, we can easily slip and miss one, or not devote the whole day to the Lord. We aren't perfect, but we have no excuse to willfully choose to ignore the weekly Saturday Sabbath every single week, simply because we find it more convenient to go to church on a Sunday, or because we choose Roman teachings/heresy over the Bible itself. Jesus will (I believe) accept all who have given their best efforts to obey His Father's will, he knows we will fail sometimes, but He forgives our errors. He will not (I believe) be as forgiving for those who willfully ignore His Father's commands, and no Christian can plead ignorance as a defence.

The following reading material deals comprehensively with some scripture that is frequently misinterpreted as meaning the Sabbath was abolished by St Paul is to be found at these links:

https://sabbathintersections.com/romans145.shtml
 http://www.colossians-2-16.com/romans-14-5.html
 http://www.colossians-2-16.com/index.html
You may find it useful to consider and compare the depth and detail of the explanations in the links above with those from a very popular website for answering Christian's questions. It's weak but poisonous sauce by comparison, typical of Satan's efforts, but it dupes many, indeed it dupes the vast majority. Satan must chuckle at how stupid humans are.

I pray that those who read this post will themselves seek the wisdom of God. Remember, fear of the Lord is the beginning of such wisdom, and we should all be terrified of standing before the Lord Jesus, terrified of ignoring Jehovah's laws, commands and statutes. Feel that fear, and use it to guide you onward on the narrow path behind our Lord. None of us know when He will return, but given the state of the world, I would not expect we have too long to wait. Don't let this matter slide, it is of vital importance to the fate of your soul in eternity: life in heaven, or death forever. Make the right choice. Amen.

5th April 2021

Hello again.

I've been meaning to write this post for quite a while, as it relates to events back in late February, when I was experiencing all of the numerical signs, as well as dreams and visions, and a physical manifestation of the supernatural force of God Himself. I wrote about the experience I had one night when I was in Morocco and felt the drive to research my late grandfather's death, aed 32,  on board HMS Galatea back in World War II, when the ship was sunk outside of Alexandria harbour on 14th December 1941.

There was a final part to that night which ran through until 5am, when I finally went to bed, having spent around two hours (for no obvious reason) carrying out calculations based on my grandfather's service number. As with many things that happened during that period, I can't offer any explanation for why I was driven to carry out these calculations, but the result of what I did does lead me to believe there is some significance to the results, although perhaps that significance will only be relevant to me. I suspect not, hence I have used one of two dates that derived from my grandfather's service number as the blog title. Will anything significant happen on that date? Time will tell.

I don't want to reveal my grandfather's service number in order to maintain my own anonymity, but a brother has seen the service number and the calculations I carried out for hours to arrive at what I knew in advance would be at least one significant date.

I will mention that my grandfather's service number began with the letters JX. That night, as I read about him and his sad pointless death, I instinctively knew that JX had to mean Jesus Christ on the cross. When I looked at his service number, there was something about it that made me realise there was a hidden meaning to the numbers, as well as the more obvious sign given by the letters JX. I had earlier that week been talking to a brother on the phone, about the higher order power of numbers being squared or cubed or more. I can't recall how that topic came up though, perhaps something to do with 7x7 =49, as 49s were popping up quite often at that time.

So, I started to work from the number 7, as I had a strong feeling the base number would be a 7, for reasons you will understand if you're a regular reader of my blog. I started trying some cubing and squaring of that number. Without giving away exactly what I was doing, it took me a couple of hours to reach a 'base number' that when squared/cubed took me back to my grandfather's service number. As you can see from the blog title, the second part of the base number provided a date in the not-too-distant future, accurate to within 3 decimal places.

To avoid any further suspense, here is the base number:

7.09202154
 It breaks down into two dates, the first is just the day and month, but no year, and the second is the date in the blog title, the 5th April 2021. The first date is the 7th September, which was the date of my baptism, back in 2017.

So, make of that what you will, but I was certain, as I was squaring and cubing, that my grandfather's service number had a hidden meaning, I just had to look at the number (it's six digits long) and I knew there was design behind that number, it had a look of beauty, of being ordered. So, I wasn't surprised to find my baptism date came up as the first part of the derivative base number, it confirmed my expectations.

As for the 5th April 2021, we will all have to wait and see what happens then, if anything. I have a strong feeling it will be something of global significance, but at present my only thought is that it could coincide with a major development in the world's capital markets (specifically the gold market) that shocks the world, but not me, as it's something I am expecting. That date could fit with my expectations for a deep recession between now and then too.

However, given the connection (via the JX and my baptism date) with Christ in my grandfather's service number, it could perhaps coincide with something of great import for the faithful in this evil world, and even for the heathens tearing the world apart. Time will reveal it to us, and I will write again if any more insights into that date are revealed to me in due course.

Next, I will write another post about that night, and some fascinating facts I discovered about my grandfather's time on board that ship. I never met him of course, but I visited the street and village in the Welsh valleys where he lived and grew up, and I frequently pray that I will meet him in due course, once I exit this earth. I know I love him very much and I know he was a man of faith too (I don't actually have any evidence of this, but I know it in my heart for sure). I am thankful for his bravery and his sacrifice in fighting and dying during the war, and I hate those who organised that war for the purposes of profit and the destruction of millions of European Christians who had no reason at all to be killing one another. Those evil perpetrators of that war deserve the eternal death and separation from Jehovah that awaits them, as well as His wrath here on earth. Evil liars and murderers, cut from the same cloth as their father, the eternal cowardly loser Satan.
