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

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.

The Post I don't really want to write, but I have to.

I'll keep this one really brief, as it's very personal, and I'd rather keep it that way, but I know I have to put it up here.

Approximately a year ago as I was being filled with the Holy Spirit, and I started to write this blog, I came to the realisation that my nation was completely terrible, having rejected Jehovah and His ways after over a thousand years of being His and of receiving His blessings. This realisation was upsetting to me, and having to live here and see and hear the heathen rage every day, and witness the curses of God happening too, it all made me feel somewhat hopeless and dejected, to the extent that I prayed a few times for God to end my life.

I wasn't feeling suicidal, or depressed about my own life, I just had a deep level of despair about the future for this nation, and the world, as all nations appear to have chosen to worship other gods now, as was prophesied in the Bible. I realised that there was nothing I could do to change the situation, Biblical prophesy was playing out, the whole world was falling away from God, so I felt at that time very frustrated and

I realised as I was praying that it was wrong and weak and that there was no way that Jehovah would answer that kind of prayer, and He hasn't, as I'm still here.

I wouldn't have chosen to share this information at all publicly, but recently whilst listening to the Bible on random shuffle, and again during my ongoing listening to the whole of the Bible in order, I came across a story of a prophet of which I was previously totally ignorant, which is copied below:

But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. 5And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. 6And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. 7And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. 8And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
Elijah was apparently in a similar frame of mind to me, which perhaps explains why we made the same prayer.

Given that I have had a load of dreams and visions recently, and the experience of a physical manifestation of the supernatural influence of God on something in my life, when a pop song was replaced overnight on an album I'd created, and replaced with a Gospel song, and only on my phone, not on my PC or the burned CD, I just have a feeling that all of the things that have happened to me, and the signs from decades ago in my past, mean God has some kind of special mission for me.

I feel confident that I know already what that mission is, and this blog is a first step on that mission, but I will be doing more in the months and years ahead. I don't think I'm a prophet at all, but it will be fascinating to see if a 1987/1929 style stock market crash happens shortly, as that was the subject of my many dreams and visions. Despite it costing me a six-figure sum in losses as it didn't happen in the last few months, I retain total faith it will happen, and I will recoup my losses and make some gains, a portion of which will aid my mission.

It's a wonderful feeling to be 'beyond faith', to know that Jehovah exists, that He is watching over me. Hard to put into words, just the best feeling possible. I wish I was more worthy of His faith in me, but I am what I am, and I would die for Him if need be, so he knows that.

I'm back.

Hello again.

I couldn't let a full month pass without writing a post, and I have much to tell, so here we go (again).

I want to reveal some personal information about me. I feel the push to reveal these facts to the world, or at least to the hundred or so people who read my blog posts, and for clarity's sake, that push is coming from the Holy Spirit. I have experienced some very strange things so far this year, all documented here at this blog, but I can't claim to be able to make sense of all of it yet, other than I feel I have something to do for Jehovah whilst I am here on earth, but currently that 'something' is simply a feeling that I need to sound the alarm that we don't have a lot of time left before the Lord Jesus Christ returns to earth. I hope and pray that Jehovah will provide me with clarity on what he needs me to do, but in the meantime I will keep sharing my thoughts and experiences here.

I will start with a strange fact relating to my Christian name (you know, I only just this second even noticed and wondered why our first names are called Christian names. I will investigate later and may add the answer to the end of the post).

My Christian name is Gary. I'm of Welsh blood, on my father's side, and I lived in Wales for 10 years in my 30s, and I love Welsh people and Wales itself, and so I chose St David's for my baptism week, and it was wonderful. Gary is an English version of the Welsh name Gareth. I was nearly named Gareth, but my father thought it was 'too Welshy'. He has no affinity with the land of his father at all, very sad. So I was named Gary, and I have always considered Gareth to be a better version.

Somehow the subject of names cropped up during a phone chat with a brother, and as a result I decided to investigate the meaning of the name Gareth, if indeed it had any. The results were surprising, like much of my history, so I perhaps shouldn't have been surprised at all.

Here's what I found:

The Welsh word 'gwaraidd' is the best phonetic fit with Gareth, as 'dd' is pronounced as 'th' in English. So I found a site that gives the full meaning of Welsh words, and here are the results for 'gwaraidd':

So my name means 'gentle, civilised and humane'. I'm not sure how or why my parents decided upon this name, but as it turns out, it perfectly describes my nature. What's more, there's another word that fits my character which has a very similar meaning to 'gwaraidd', one that appears several times in the bible:

Most people misunderstand the meaning of the word 'meek', thinking it means 'weak' or 'feeble'. No, it doesn't mean that.

Rather than me write an explanation of the word meek, please read this great article, some of which I will copy here. To be meek is to be trusting in Jehovah for everything.

I urge all Believers to seek the qualities of anav (meekness).  I urge you to see that the condition our Father delights in, the condition of the heart that pleases Him and secures our relationship with Him, runs deep.  It cannot be contrived.  It cannot be for show.  It is forgetting self and being completely open and trusting and prepared for Him.
Whether in a bent knee or a bow, kneeling or taming your tongue, crediting Him alone for what is good or accepting His discipline with gratitude… anav is always being mindful of Him and His instructions.
Remember what King Solomon said in Proverbs 15? Telling us that the fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom?  And that before glory is anavah?  Remember what Psalm 25 said?  That He will guide the anavim in judgment, teaching them His way?
Just as a young ox would be yoked with an older ox to learn to walk the straight path through the fields, Yeshua invites us to take His yokeand learn from Him.  We learn by immersing ourselves in the Word.  If He is the Living Word, which HE IS, we must walk with Him through the fields of Torah and the Prophets to fully realize and magnify HIS desired potential in us.
May we all endeavor to completely submit to the authority of our Father!

My approach to the world is to use Jehovah and Jesus as guides, I don't think there's anything at all any man can teach me that comes anywhere near what I can learn from the Bible. If you try to improve people's lives, either in your locality, or by writing online, without following their examples, you are wasting your time in my opinion. As time passes, and more and more of the world is led astray, it becomes clear that time is short.

So, don't waste your time with futile matters, now is the time to call the world to repent of their evil ways. If you don't currently tithe to God, do it now, and spend the money on a leaflet campaign in your locality, or write something regularly for your local free newspaper. Someone may read it and be saved. That's what I am about to do, the time for procrastination is now over.

And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

This is a post about my nation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and in particular covers the attempts by this nation to exit the European Union, something more often referred to as 'Brexit'. It also serves as a warning to my neighbours for what lies ahead for these lands, and indeed for the whole world. Ignore my warnings at your peril.

As the past few months have seen our government and our parliament become ever-more impotent and disorganised in its attempts to actually leave the EU, the rest of the world has become more and more astonished at the fiasco that is unfolding.

It shouldn't surprise Christians in the UK, or overseas though, as Britain has turned away from Jehovah and His laws almost completely now, and so the 'Curses of Disobedience' section of Deuteronomy 28 are now in force, and this is just the start.

I recently wrote a comment online at a political blog, in an effort to warn my fellow countrymen of the dangers that lie ahead due to our disobedience, here is the comment, which I also shared to my Twitter followers:

 'A general warning to fellow Brits, also applies to America and any other formerly obedient Christian nation: We never have had freedom and never will have it. The idea of freedom is itself a desire for liberalism, hence it is incoherent. We did once however choose the perfect authority figure and His laws.
His name is Jehovah, and Alfred the Great loved His laws, commands and statutes, and set England up on the basis of God's laws. If you do that, your nation will be blessed, and so we were blessed.
We were a tiny little island with nothing going for it at all,  and gradually we became a great Christian Empire, spreading its unique civilisation across the planet. Then, gradually, and then in a hurry these past 80 years, we ditched Jehovah, and ditched His laws,
I had two responses to my warning on the political blog, with the first saying simply 'Begone Jesusfreak', and the second was a comment related to a plague of frogs. No one else commented, although I suspect several hundred might have read the comment.

I expected no different. My nation is now totally doomed, it has been judged by Jehovah and found guilty and can now expect to suffer for a very long time, perhaps in perpetuity like Egypt. I mentioned Pslam 2 above, so I'll share that with you, as it's a cracking chapter:

'The Triumphant Messiah
1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.'
The current rulers of the European nations are not Kings, but are politicians, bureaucrats and those who slither around in the background, the puppeteers. All of them deny the Authority of Jehovah, all of them covet the whole world, and seek to turn humanity towards worshiping false gods, often other puny humans, or other lesser gods or demons. Either way, rest assured that Jehovah sits on His throne in heaven and literally laughs at their silly machinations and plans. At this time, I am sure He is finding the contortions in the British parliament over Brexit especially hilarious.

As an English-born man of Celtic (Welsh) descent, I really do want to see my nation leave the European Union, but I have to acknowledge that even if this were to happen, my nation is not going to escape the wrath of Jehovah. It's very possible we will stay within the EU, as Deuteronomy explains we will lose the ability to rule ourselves, but will instead serve our enemies:

'45Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: 46And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
47Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.'

Remember, the European Union is an organisation devoid of any reference to Jehovah whatsoever. They hate Him and His ways, and so they hate Britain, as we used to be loyal and obedient to Him. They think us foolish, and think themselves very wise. Well, time will prove all things, and surely we will witness the demise of the European Union, and much more besides, in the decades ahead, as Jehovah turns His attention to judging the whole world, which is now bereft of a faithful and obedient nation.

For now though, Britain is a laughing stock the world over. We have a Queen who is old, frail, and of German descent, an impostor, who has failed to stand up for Jehovah through her long reign. She has much to answer for, a cowardly and useless monarch. 

We have an old female childless Prime Minister who is unable to even maintain control over her own party, let alone the House of Commons, and has no credibility in the nation whatsoever, whether one wants to leave the EU, or remain, she is viewed universally as a failure, as a weak woman, and as a liar and a cheat. The same can be said for the leader of the opposition, who is also betraying his party's voters' desire to leave the EU, as promised in their party manifesto. We have power-mad members of parliament, including the Speaker of the House of Commons, grabbing for power as the exit process is frustrated at every turn.

The people of Britain, the voters, are indeed becoming sorely vexed now. Some of them want us to leave, some of them want us to stay in the EU, but not many of them care about obeying the laws, commands and statutes of Jehovah, nor are grateful that He sent His Son to die for our sins, and are largely ignorant of the foundations of modern Britain, thanks to the great faith and efforts of Alfred the Great some 1200 years ago, which saw him model our system on that of the Laws God gave to Moses all those years ago. We were blessed for nearly 1200 years, before the evils of the two great world wars took so many innocent lives.

I despair for our nation, I hate that it has fallen away from the perfect set of laws and commands, fallen away from loving Jehovah and our people show so few signs now of loving one's neighbour either, and is now full of people who think they know (via democracy) how to run a nation. The mention of these matters to people these days (online or in real life) leads to responses of bemused ignorance, vitriol, or most often just a nonchalance and confidence in their own wisdom and counsel. It's pathetic, and the Church in Britain is similarly fallen, not even bothering to observe the weekly Sabbath.

As I mentioned earlier, this is just the beginning of the tribulations for Britain, there is much worse to follow, please just have a read of Deuteronomy 28 for the details.

In closing, if you are a Briton who sees what I see, do not fear, and do not mourn the fall of our nation. The future is bright for those of us who are both obedient and fear Jehovah, as we will be victorious, one way or another, perhaps not in this life, but in the eternity that follows. Do all you can to warn people that the days before our planet's judgement are few, and help them prepare to face the Lord upon His glorious and triumphant return. Jehovah will not permit satan to turn the whole world away from Him, and we're as good as at that point already, hence my feeling that we have mush less time left than many imagine. I have to say, I feel such sorrow and anger at the state of the world these days, that the day we see Jesus return cannot come soon enough for me, and indeed for the whole of humanity, including our ancestors. Satan will think he has it all sewn up, and then The Lord Jesus will return and all will kneel before Him, most will perish, and a few will be saved, as he ushers in a Golden Era of His rule.
