Today is the 8th Month in God's Year

By Bob Barney

New month

 I often mention that God's calendar is NOT like any other calendar on earth today.  It is not the Roman calendar that we follow, or the equally pagan Jewish calendar that many churches believe is the calendar of God.  To read more about God's Calendar click here .  There is a mistake that those who follow a Jewish calendar has made, and that refers to the word for new moon.  That is a mistranslation, as the proper rendering should be NEW MONTH, as I did in The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible.

The Hebrew word 'chodesh', which is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance simply means "new" or to "rebuild." Chodesh does not mean "new moon". It means 'new' with an implication that a month is about to begin again.

Originally, when the earth had a perfect 360 day rotation around the sun, and the moon's journey around the earth was exactly 30 days (today it is 29.5 days), new moons where on the new months. The calendar was in balance. However, probably after the flood, the weight of water slowed the earth rotational spin (this is NOT mentioned in the Bible) to 365.25 days a year and the moon's rotation to the present one of 29.5 days.

 

Calendar.1

 

 

The ancients noticed that the months were no longer 30 days and the years were not 360 days, but now over 365. A calendar needed to be made to reflect this. Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count. This is also seen in Enoch's calendar (see illustration on left).God's calendar was like the Egyptian one except that year no longer started on the first day of summer, but on the first day of spring. Springtime is the birth of the new year in nature, as morning is the start of the day as well. The term for new moon became "new month" as the new moons and new months no longer matched up. This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.

 

 

Happy NEW MONTH!

 

 

Like King Nebuchadnezzar - Trump's Ego May Trip him up

Bob Barney

Beast4According to the Biblical book of Daniel, the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, who God called "His annotated king"  suffered from a mental illness, brought on by refusing to acknowledge God for his wealth,  lived in  isolated for seven years, in a state of insanity.  Why?  His ego!   Trump could learn for him.

Daniel on the Madness of Nebuchadnezzar

[4.29] At the end of the twelve months Nebuchadnezzar was walking about the royal palace of Babylon.

[4.30] The king spoke, saying, "Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?" 

[4.31] While the word was still in the king's mouth, a voice fell from heaven: "King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: "The kingdom has departed from you!"

[4.32] And they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. They shall make you eat grass like oxen; and seven years shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses." 

[4.33] That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds' claws.

[4.34] And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him Who lives forever: for His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation.

[4.35] All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; He does according to His will in the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand or say to Him, "What have You done?" 

[4.36] At the same time my reason returned to me, and for the glory of my kingdom, my honor and splendor returned to me. My counselors and nobles resorted to me, I was restored to my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added to me.

[4.37] Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down.

TRUMP's WORDS SIMILAR TO the ancient King of Babylon!

President Trump called himself the 'chosen one' to take on China and tweeted a quote calling him 'King of Israel' - fueling a hashtag to remove him for being unfit for office.


Petra, The Bible, and The Church

English: Sandstone Rock-cut tombs (Kokh) in Pe...English: Sandstone Rock-cut tombs (Kokh) in Petra (Jordan) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Bob Barney:

For the most part the city of Petra has been forgotten in church prophecy. Yet Petra, first inhabited by Canaanite Horites, then Edomites, Israelites, Nabatean Arabs, is actually third third most mentioned place in the Bible!  Once a most important place to Ancient Israel and God, then lost to the world for 1500 years, now being investigated again since it’s rediscovery in 1812. Petra has many names in the Bible- The following link is from www.bible.ca:

 

Petra, Jordan (Kadesh Barnea)

Josephus says Kadesh Barnea was located at Petra in 1400 BC. The Treasury at Petra was carved by the Nabataeans in 100 BC and represents a reuse of the Hebrew city. This unusual "city of the tombs" carved into solid sandstone by the Nabataeans was the place Israel buried their dead for 38 years.

Since the time of Joshua, is has been called "The Rock" (Sela/Petra) because this is where Moses brought water out of the Rock.


Introduction: Reasons why Petra is Kadesh:

    1.    You can prove from the Bible that Kadesh must be Transjordan, east of the Arabah Valley. (see below or southern boundaries of Judah for more specific details.) When Israel departed Kadesh, they headed south towards the Red Sea and came to Mt. Hor where Aaron died. We know, therefore, that Kadesh is either at Petra, or just north of it.


    2.    Eusebius (325 AD), Jerome (400 AD) both said that Kadesh was located at Petra. They also said that in their day, they could still see the rock that Moses struck with his staff for water.


    3.    Josephus (110 AD), Eusebius (325 AD), Jerome (400 AD) all stated that Petra is where Aaron died on Mt. Hor. Mt. Hor was Transjordan outside the promise land only one stop from Kadesh.


    4.    All Bible maps since 1916 AD wrongly locate Kadesh Barnea at ein el-Qudeirat which is 27 km inside formal stated boundary of the promised land. Israel did not spend 38 years in the wilderness in the territory given to Judah. So the current choice of Kadesh at Qudeirat is wrong for two reasons: 1. it is not Transjordan. 2. It is inside the promised land. Both of these reasons are based upon explicit Bible passages.


    5.    The name "Petra" means rock, because this is the place where Moses "brought water out of the rock". The Bible refers to Petra three times as "Sela", which also means rock. In 325 AD Eusebius said that he could visit Petra and see the very rock that Moses split in two and water came out. We believe that the 1 km long crevice called "the Siq", is itself what was split in two. People are looking for a single rock that split, when in fact it was more like an earth quake that split an entire mountain in two. More on the rock that split.


    6.    There is an ancient tradition (Eusebius) of the "River of Moses" (Wadi Musa) that flows through the 1 km long crevice (Siq), past the Nabataean Treasury then down into the Arabah valley. This reinforces why it is called, "Petra". Both the Rock that Moses struck and the resulting flow of water are ancient traditions at Petra. There are several springs in the Petra area even today. The Siq is a complex geological feature that has many places where water could enter it.


    7.    Geologist, Dr. Don Patton has personally examined the "River of Moses" (Siq), and has concluded that the canyon has hydrological features consistent with water cutting. As you walk the Siq, there are many fissures where water came out of the rock and joined the main flow. The Roman road that was recently excavated below 15 feet of earth, proves that the Siq is a dead relic canyon that has not deepened in 2300 years. This indicates that a large continuous flow of water cut the canyon quickly.


    8.    Archeology has uncovered evidence an occupation of Petra of a people (perhaps Hebrew) before the Edomites (1400 - 950 BC), Solomon (950 - 930 BC) and the Nabataeans (350 BC - 106 AD) Romans (106 AD - 300 AD) There is an ancient "Neolithic" town at Al-Beidha, just north of Petra. This is the general area where we would expect to find Kadesh, although we are not suggesting (to make it clear) that these Neolithic remains are from the exodus period.


    9.    Archeologists look for candidate locations of Kadesh with large natural water supplies. Ein el-Qudeirat, for example, was chosen for just this reason. Today Qudeirat is the almost universal choice of location on all Bible maps because it is the largest spring in the Sinai Peninsula for a 100 km radius. But the real Kadesh was described as a waterless place with no crops, grazing lands or fruit trees. Only with a miracle of Moses hitting the rock, did a large river result. Although we can prove from Tell el-kheleifeh, that sea levels are unchanged, the water table levels have dropped dramatically since the Exodus. Even during the time of Christ there were many springs flowing at Petra. In 15 AD, Strabo: "The metropolis of the Nabataeans is Petra ... and the inside parts having springs in abundance, both for domestic purposes and for watering gardens. (Strabo. Geography 16:4:21, 15 AD) Yet today, the 5 springs of Petra, have almost all dried up. So Kadesh is likely located at a place with no springs at all that we can see today!


    10.    No one knows why the tombs of the dead are there. It even says this in the official site information. Moshe said this. it is because it is near Mt. Hor where Aaron and Miriam were buried.


    11.    Since they spent 38 years at Kadesh, the tombs were where the dead Israelites were kept. The Nabateans found the site continued in the tradition started by the Hebrews of using it as a burial city. "The city underwent major construction in the period 50 BC to AD 100 during the reigns of Obodas II (III) and Aretas IV (with construction of the Treasury, Q'asr al Bint, Temple of the Winged Lions and Theatre), and Roman and Greek technologies most probably influenced the water-system design." (The Water Supply of Petra, Charles R. Ortloff, Cambridge Archaeological Journal, 2005, 15:1:93-109)


    12.    Moshe pointed out what he believed to be where the Israelite camp was at Petra.


    13.    There is no large flow of water now at Petra, the canyons are water cut relics of the past. Just like Mammoth caves in Kentucky are a relic of past events, so too Petra.


    14.    See the main page on Kadesh Barnea.


    15.    "Despite 75 years of excavation, only one percent of the city has been investigated." (How Petra was Built, Shaher M. Rababeh, 2005, p28)


    16.    It is very interesting is that the location of Petra was unknown in 1600 AD. It was rediscovered in 1812, by John Lewis Burckhardt. Yet maps from the 1600's knew of its existence but they were not sure where to locate it. For example, in 1587 AD, Abraham Ortelius had two locations for Petra and Kadesh Barnea. A precedent for mapping uncertain locations in two places is also found in the Madaba map regarding the location of Mt. Gerizim and Mt. Ebal. Just as the Madaba Map has two locations for Gerizim and Ebal, so too does Abraham Ortelius's map have two locations for Petra and Kadesh Barnea. What is clear, however, is that Abraham Ortelius located Kadesh Barnea beside Petra. He just didn't know where Petra was! See our map page for more details.


    17.    After a careful research of the Bible and history, it became evident that Kadesh was either at or just north of Petra. 4 km north of Petra is Beidha which has traces of human occupation going back as far as the flood (3000 BC). The three occupational stages at Beidha occurred between 3000 - 1000 BC. Occupation by the Nabataeans about 100 BC is also evident. We believe that Beidha was part of Kadesh Barnea and represented public buildings used for various communal things. (Early Village Life At Beidha: Neolithic, Brian Byrd, 2005 AD)

God’s TRUE Church is pictured in Revelation 12. It is symbolized by a woman-(the bride of Christ). We see that by the end time, the true Church is hated by the world.  The great False Christian Church in Rome is not this church. The Church in Rome will be loved and a leader in the Tribulation times. According to verse 6 the true Church flees the first time from her persecutors for 1260 years - during the Middle Ages. But verse 14 unveils another flight of the Church-in the very last days. This time the duration is only 3y2 years! “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle”-supernatural deliverance-“that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time”--3 1/2 years.

Revelation 3:7-13. “I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation”-the time of trial--“which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth’ (verse 10). Here is a world-wide terror that will come upon the entire world. This is not for the slow-moving past. It is a prophecy for the soon to come “last days” of human history--just before God intervenes to set up His Kingdom to bring peace to the world.

Isaiah 42:l0-13. Here is a prophecy for today-a time of divine intervention, verse 14. Now read verse 11 from the Jewish Publication Society translation according to the original inspired Hebrew:
“Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit”--the descendants of Kedar are the Bedouin Arabs who dwell throughout the Middle East in black tents. Here we have a wilderness located in the Arab world! But continue reading: “Let the inhabitants of Sela exult. Let them shout from the top of the mountains.” The inhabitants of Sela? Who are they? And where is Sela? (In the King James Version the word for Sela is translated “rock.” Sela is the Hebrew name of Petra)


Isaiah 33: Beginning with verse 13 God warns the House of Israel (which is The United States, Britain, and certain Western and Northern European nations)-the “sinners in Zion”-of their sins (verse 14). “Who will be able to live through the endtime warfare?” God asks (verse 14). Those who obey Him, declares verse 15. But where will they go?


Verses 16 and 17 answer! “He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks.. .” This verse is poorly translated in most versions because the translators did not understand the prophecy. The true meaning has been hidden. The place of protection shall be, not munitions of rocks, but the “strongholds of Sela!” The original, inspired Hebrew, mistranslated “munitions,” is metsad, and means a stronghold or a castle or a fort. And the word for “rock” in this verse is Sela, the name of Petra in the Hebrew language!


Petra is a dry, barren area. It hardly provides a few dozen Bedouin sufficient sustenance. How are all of the faithful people of God to be provided for? Continue with the end of verse 16: “...his bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.” Here also is supernatural provision! Remember what happened to the children of Israel in the Sinai wilderness? God supernaturally provided them food and water nearly 40 long years! God can do the same today! It is not those who heap up provisions that shall escape! It is those who obey God, who do His work, and who trust Him to provide the necessities and the divine protection when that time arrives!


Verse 17 completes the picture: “Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off’-or “they shall behold a land stretching afar,” according to the Jewish translation. We shall see Him as He is (I John 3:2). Notice also that those in safety see “the land”-Palestine, the promised land stretching into the distance. Surely here is another indication of the high rocky crags of Petra from which one may look northwest to the promised land.


In Isaiah 16,  in verses 1 to 5, the prophet foretells, “Send the lambs for the Ruler (Christ) of the land from Petra that is toward the wilderness, unto the mount of the daughter of Zion” The time setting of this prophecy is the return of Christ to rule the world. He is the King of the land. The Moabites are commanded to seek Him, to send Him an offering as a token of their submission. The offering comes from Petra.  Other prophecies also picture peoples from the east capturing the land east of the Jordan. (See Ezekiel 25:l0.) As these hordes plunge toward Palestine, slaughtering as they go, a pitiful remnant--described in Jeremiah 48:1-25--escapes at the Arnon (a stream running into the Dead Sea). The Moabite refugees flee southward for protection. Why? Is it perhaps because they have known of others already there in a place of safety? Now look at verse 4. God is addressing Moab: "Let Mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler."


 "Mine outcasts," This is what God calls them. Now compare this prophecy with Jeremiah 48:28, “O ye that dwell in Moab, leave the cities, and dwell in the rock”--Petra--“and be like the dove that makes her nest in the sides of the holes mouth...” This is a great description of Petra, with its caves!
Isaiah 16:5 then reveals the very next prophetic event to occur: “then God will establish one of David's descendants as king. He will rule with mercy and truth. He will always do what is just and be eager to do what is right.”

The longest continuous prophecy, covering event by event over 2500 years of history, is found in Daniel chapters 10 - 12. In the eleventh chapter, verse 41, is a prophecy for the “End Times.” The final ruler of the Roman Empire--the King of the North (Europe) -- overruns Egypt and invades Palestine. “He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon” (v. 41). The ancient territories are today all found in one modern nation- Jordan! And in Jordan today is Petra!


Does not this prophecy imply that Jordan escapes because God has chosen this land to be a place of safety? Every one of these prophecies point to the mysterious city of Petra as a place of safety! Not all of the Church will end up here, as the Bible does not preach “protectionism” to the saved. Many Christians are to be slaughtered for the sake of Christ, others will be tortured and imprisoned, but a few will be protected by God in the wilderness - and that place may be Petra...

Today is the Last Great Day of the Feast of Tabernacles

By Bob Barney- The Plain Truth

image from lifehopeandtruth.comIn the past, I have written much concerning the last Day of the 7-Day Feast of Tabernacles, a time of great joy and “vacation” for the members of God's Church. The Feast week symbolizes the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth known as the Millennium. During this time we leave home and dwell in booths (temporary dwellings) for seven days, to teach us that we are strangers and pilgrims on this earth, looking forward to a New Heavens and New Earth. Today is yet another Holy day. It is known as the 8th Day of the Feast, but in all reality, it is a separate holiday called THE LAST GREAT DAY, and this day has a very important message. It is called in the Bible a special Sabbath Day. It is to be treated as any Sabbath. We are not to work, and we are to hold a sacred church service. Leviticus 23:36, 39, . . . “on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly [margin: "day of restraint"]; and ye shall do no servile work therein . . . on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.”

Exodus 23:14-17 states , “Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto Me in the year . . . the feast of unleavened bread . . . the feast of harvest, the firstfruits [Pentecost] of thy labors, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the [agricultural, civil] year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.”

 

In the New Testament, we read: "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive . . . ." Jesus chose this day because it has great significance in the plan of God and the salvation of mankind and our rebirth as members into the God Family!

Yesterday, the last day of the feast is the forerunner of Revelation 20:11-15, "And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, . . . And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

During the Last Great Day of the Feast we are to visualize God THE FATHER leaving heaven, and moving His throne to earth to live here with us! We are not going to heaven- Heaven is coming to us! In Revelation 21: “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a beautiful bride prepared for her husband. I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, "Look, the home of God is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God (the Father) himself will be with them. He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever." ”

Yes, there is a paradise coming. It is a paradise on earth, where we are to live with God (Jesus and the Father) for all eternity, as actual members of the God Family.


‘We Need To Eat The Babies!’

2 Kings 6:29: So we cooked my son and ate him. The next day I said to her, 'Give up your son so we may eat him,' but she had hidden him."

Jeremiah 19:9 "I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, and they will eat one another's flesh during the stress of the siege imposed on them by the enemies who seek their lives."

Yet another Bible Prophecy is about to come true. You may think this was not real when you first read the above passages years ago, but look at your news today and see The Plain Truth about God's prophecies and YOUR FUTURE!   MORE

 

READ THIS and be frightened America- This is coming to you!

Deuteronomy 28:53-57 (also Lev 26:29)

Because of the suffering that your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb (abortions), the flesh of the sons and daughters (Cannibalism) the Lord your God has given you. Even the most gentle and sensitive man among you will have no compassion on his own brother or the wife he loves or his surviving children, and he will not give to one of them any of the flesh of his children that he is eating. It will be all he has left because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of all your cities. The most gentle and sensitive woman among you - so sensitive and gentle that she would not venture to touch the ground with the sole of her foot - will begrudge the husband she loves and her own son or daughter the afterbirth from her womb and the children she bears. For she intends to eat them secretly during the siege and in the distress that your enemy will inflict on you in your cities.


The Feast Day 3-----Understanding God's Calendar

God's Calendar is NOT the Jewish Calendar!

By Bob Barney

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com

For those readers confused why our dating of the red;igious holidays varies from other churches, let me explain God's Calendar.... In a nutshell, the real Calendar given to Moses was SOLAR based on fixing the new year on the spring equinox. Moses was raised as an Egyptian, which also followed the SOLAR and not a Lunar-Solar Year. The Egyptian calendarused at Elephantine, Egypt in consisted of 12 months of 30 days length. The Egyptians knew this was not acceptable and simply added and additional 5-6 leap days each year, at the end of their year. The days were simply not counted until the summer equinox came, and thus they began their new year! Day 1 all over again. Very simple.

The Hebrew Calendar given to Moses by God was the same as the Egyptian, but starting with a different month. The year started on the spring equinox (March 20-21) instead of the summer solstice (The Egyptian new year about June 21). See Exodus 12:2 for the Bible reference to this. Notice God wasn’t changing Moses’ calendar, just the date of the new year! The Bible shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that God's calendar only has 12--- 30-day months (that's only 360 days, the true year BEFORE the Flood of Noah) and that 5 1/4 days of each year are simply NOT COUNTED!

Look at the book’s of Daniel and revelation.

Revelation 11:2a-3b?They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. ...And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days

Divide 1,260 days by 42 months and you will get a 30-day month. Twelve months of 30 days equals 360-days in a year. What is the meaning of this divine number in contrast with the fact that we know the time required for the earth to circle the sun is approximately 365.25 days?

When 1,260 Days = a time, times and half a time In the Book of Revelation

Revelation 12:6?The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days

Revelation 12:14?The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach

In verse 6 above, the time given is 1,260 days. But in verse 14, the time given is described as a time, times and half a time. This is most often interpreted as 3 and one-half years or 42 months. So verses 6 and 14 as noted above yield a 30-day month. Twelve months of 30 days equals 360-days in a prophetic year.

The answer is that the Bible has been written with a "PROPHETIC YEAR" defined as 360 days in length. This is only applied to biblical prophecy. And it is important that to attain the 360-day year, you must let the Bible interpret the Bible.

When 1,260 Days = a time, times and half a time In the Book of Daniel

Daniel 7:25?He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time

Daniel 12:7?The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time

In both Daniel 7:25 and Daniel 12:7, the time given is described as "a time, times and half a time". This is most often interpreted as 3 and one-half years or 42 months. When the prophecy of the 70-weeks is interpreted using the 360-day prophetic year, divine guidance appears to be revealed in human events from ancient history into the 21st century.

In each 42-month period foretold, the earth is to be directed by unrestrained evil. The 360-day year makes for a good relationship between the books of Daniel and Revelation.

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.comMany today do not believe in the flood, but the evidence of the great flood of Noah is found everywhere and no place better than the calendar, any calendar!  Before the flood, the earth was formed perfectly and the calendarwas also perfect! The pre-flood humans followed a 360 day, twelve month calendar with each month have exactly thirty days! After the flood however, all hell broke out for mankind trying to keep the old "perfect" calendar. The earth had trillions of tons of extra water weight and slowed down! 5 1/4 days slower to be exact! Ever since, man has tried to make the calendar perfect again, but we cannot! The moon now circles the earth in only 29.5 days, so lunar months are no longer accurate (a lunar year is only 356 days long) Post flood mankind worked on calendars for generations.

Genesis Proves the 360 Day Year

Based on the book of Genesis, the calendar at the time of Noah consisted of 12 months of 30 days. At the beginning of the flood, the water came forth on the 17th of the month. Five months later on the 17th day of the month, the book of Genesis reveals that 150 days had passed. Dividing 150 days by 5 months supports that the early calendar contained 12 months of 30 days length. Therefore, the book of Genesis supports the 360 days per year calculation. Here are the supporting Scriptures.

Genesis 7:11?In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month--on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened

Genesis 8:3?The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days (150 days) the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month (5 months later) the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat

Since the book of Genesis is attributed to Moses by conservative scholars, it is credible that the 360 days per year was in use at the time of Moses.

The Egyptians finally decided on a fix for the calendar that is actually more accurate than the calendar we follow today! Even with our modern calendar, we lose a day every four years (leap year) and we almost never know how many days are in many months (28, 29, 30 or 31????) The Egyptian and Moses' calendar had 12-30 day months EVERY YEAR and 5 and 1/4 "no days". This calendar never needed adjustment! Passover, and all Holy Days (except the weekly Sabbath fell on the same date each year!)

 In Moses' calendar that "fixed date" is the spring equinox to make sure Passover always fell on the same solar day! Proof of a 12 month 30 day month year? Revelation says that 1260 days ARE 3-1/2 years OR 42 months! Do the math! It is PLAIN and simple. The Bible answers all of it's own mysteries. Proof that Jesus did not follow the Jewish Calendar? His Passover was 1 Day BEFORE the Jewish Passover! Nobody ever notices that fact..... Even the Armstrong's can't figure out the holidays because they never understood that the calendar Christ was following was the one that Moses followed and NOT the one the Jews were following then.


The Feast-Day 2----God's Sabbath to be Kept by Jesus during His 1000 Year Reign

BY BOB BARNEY

Yes you read the correctly!

Many, who claim that God did away with and The Sabbath Day have a problem, and that problem is with the Bible! In fact, their problem is not only with the words in the Bible concerning the Sabbath Day (as well as Holy Days and even sacrifices) these words SHOULD BE IN RED (like in the Plain Truth's Bible)...   You see, The Lord God Himself (non-other than the being who became Jesus Christ) tells us plainly that during the millennium, that animal sacrifices, The Sabbath Day, CIRCUMCISION, and the Holy Days will be observed by God's people, or they will be thrown out of the kingdom!  The LAW (which most Christian Churches teach has been abolished)  will be in full force!  Even God's DIET will be enforced!

The Sabbath:

Revelation 21:1-5:  

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”[a] for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Isiah 66:22-23  “As the new heavens and the new earth that I make will endure before me,” declares the Lord, “so will your name and descendants endure.  From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the Lord (Jesus).

The Sabbath WILL NOT START AT SUNSET!:

 The sun and moon and stars will no longer shine,  yet there will be continuous day! Only the Lord knows how! There will be no normal day and night—at evening time it will still be lightLife-giving waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half toward the Dead Sea and half toward the Mediterranean, flowing continuously both in winter and in summer.

Sacrifices and Holy Days: 

The reading of Ezekiel 42-46 shows that during the millennium there will be all the principal offerings that were introduced in the Levitical system, namely, the burnt offering, the oblation, the peace offering, the sin and trespass offerings, and the drink offering. In the coming day the sacrifices will look back on the life and death of Christ in this world, whereas the sacrifices of the Levitical system looked forward to the coming and sacrificial work of Jesus.

The same chapters also show the feasts that will be celebrated. There will be a special ordinance when the new order is introduced, in the day when the altar is made and sprinkled with blood. Sacrifices will be offered on the altar for seven days, the blood being put on the four horns, the four corners of the settle [ledge], and upon the border round about (Ezek. 43:20-26). Atonement for the house will be made on the first of the first month and the first of the seventh month (Ezek. 45:18-20); and on the new moons the prince will offer his offerings, and with the people shall worship the Lord (Ezek. 46:2-7).

Holy Days:

16 In the end, those who survive the plague will go up to Jerusalem each year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, to celebrate The Feast of Tabernacles.  And any nation anywhere in all the world that refuses to come to Jerusalem to worship The Feast of Tabernacles of the King, the Lord Almighty, will have no rain. 18 But if Egypt refuses to come to The Feast of Tabernacles, God will punish her with some other plague. 19 And so Egypt and the other nations will all be punished if they refuse to come to The Feast of Tabernacles.

 

Circumcision:  

We heard it said, The New Testament abolished circumcision, yet once again we know that Passover is to be observed in the millennium, and we have Jesus Christ saying, as LORD: "If there are foreigners living among you who want to celebrate the LORD's Passover, let all their males be circumcised. Only then may they celebrate the Passover with you like any native-born Israelite. But no uncircumcised male may ever eat the Passover meal."     How can that be?

The simple answer is that Christians, like the Israelite's 40 year wandering in the desert also did not circumcise their children!  Read it for yourselves in Joshua.   However, after the 40 years, and before entering into the promised land (think of the millennium) they GOT CIRCUMCISED!  Christian, who are raised to SPIRIT on the day of Christ's return are no longer flesh, so those raised immortal will not undergo circumcision, BUT THE REST OF THE physical world WILL BE CIRCUMCISED AGAIN!

The 10 Commandments and THE LAW are FOREVER!

Yes friends, what you have probably been taught, just is NOT what the Bible says about the coming reign of Jesus Christ. He is coming for His saints, and to be King over this Earth, bringing with Him HIS Sabbaths, His Laws, and His will.   Jesus said, "If you love Me, keep My commandments" (John 14:15).


Feast of Tabernacles Starts Tomorrow!

Tomorrow Starts the Feast of Tabernacles, an 8 Day Celebration of Christ in the Millennium 

Feast of Tabernacles

In John 1:14 we read,

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt (Greek word we translated “dwelt” is “tabernacle”) among us.

It was 3,500 years ago / 1,500 before Christ / God instructed Moses to build the tabernacle.

Tabernacle was a tent. “The tent of meeting.”

The tabernacle was filled with symbolism.

image from voice-wilderness.orgSomething that stands for something else by reason of relationship, association, resemblance; a visible sign of something invisible. The lion is a symbol of courage.

Tabernacle / everything in it/ a symbol / or a type / picture / an object lesson / picture story Person / work/ Jesus /salvation.

Theologically, it is of immense importance; Genesis only 5 words are given to the creation of billions of galaxies.

Gen. 1:16, “He made the stars also.”

For the tabernacle, its construction, its significance, 50 chapters.

The tabernacle also gives us a glimpse of what the throne room in heaven is like! Heb. 9:24

For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;

One of the lessons God wanted to teach was that He wanted to be in the midst of His people.

The Tabernacle was situated right in the middle of the Israelite encampment. When the Tabernacle was set up, the nation of Israel surrounded it. Three tribes set up their tents to the North, three to the South, three to the East, and three to the West.

And right in the middle of them all was God’s tent… His tabernacle.

But even when the people moved from place to place and the tabernacle had to be torn down and moved, EVEN THEN, God’s Tabernacle was the center of His people.

Read CHRIST in THE TABERNACLE


Atonement is over- Tabernacles is NEXT!

The Day of Atonement just ended, so what comes next in God's Holy day Schedule?  It's a week long celebration of feasting and fun called Tabernacles, or tents...  It when God's people where told to live in temporary tents for 8 days.  Why? You may ask.  The reason is that this celebration is central to the message Jesus brought forth!

Isaiah 53- The Suffering Christ and The Day of Atonement

The following is from The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible, where every word of Christ is in RED, including in the Old Testament!  

image from images-na.ssl-images-amazon.comORDER HERE

The Prophets:

Isaiah 53

 

THE SUFFERING CHRIST:

            The part of Isaiah not usually read by Jews today. It is about the suffering Christ.

Who has believed our message? To whom has the LORD(Jesus)'s power been revealed?

                        The answer to this is Christians. JOHN 12:38   Romans 10:16

He grew up in his presence like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about His appearance, nothing to attract us to Him.

                        Jesus was ordinary looking! In fact, people could not pick him out in a crowd. Even though he taught everyday in the Temple, the High Priest needed Judas to point Jesus out to the soldiers! He was that ordinary          looking!

3 He was despised and rejected. A man of sorrows, familiar with suffering. He was despised like one from whom people turn their faces, and we didn't consider Him to be worth anything.

                        Jews today, claim their Messiah would come as a king. This shows that he was to come like Jesus        did! Adam his his face from Jesus, so did the Jews, so do many today!  Matthew 27:30    Hebrews 4:15                John 1:10

He certainly has taken upon himself our suffering and carried our sorrows, but we thought that God(Elohim/Theos) had wounded Him, beat Him, and punished Him.

                        The Jews believed him to be a sinner, beat him and killed him.  Matthew 8:17     1 Peter 2:24

                        literally, "But yet He hath taken (or borne) our sicknesses," that is, they who despised Him because of His human infirmities ought rather to have esteemed Him on account of them; for thereby "Himself took           OUR infirmities" (bodily diseases). So Matthew 8:17quotes it. In the Hebrew for "borne," or took, there is probably the double notion, He took on Himself vicariously (so Isaiah 53:5Isaiah 53:6Isaiah 53:8Isaiah       53:12 ), and so He took away; His perfect humanity whereby He was bodily afflicted for us, and in all our       afflictions ( Isaiah 63:9Hebrews 4:15) was the ground on which He cured the sick; so that Matthew's          quotation is not a mere accommodation. See Note 42 of ARCHBISHOP MAGEE, Atonement. The Hebrew        there may mean to overwhelm with darkness; Messiah's time of darkness was temporary (Matthew 27:45),       answering to the bruising of His heel; Satan's is to be eternal, answering to the bruising of his head (compare          Isaiah 50:10). 
                        carried . . . sorrows--The notion of substitution strictly. "Carried," namely, as a burden. "Sorrows,"     that is, pains of the mind; as "griefs" refer to pains of the body ( 
Psalms 32:1038:17). Matthew 8:17might       seem to oppose this: "And bare our sicknesses." But he uses "sicknesses" figuratively for sins, the cause of             them. Christ took on Himself all man's "infirmities;" so as to remove them; the bodily by direct miracle,           grounded on His participation in human infirmities; those of the soul by His vicarious suffering, which did      away with the source of both. Sin and sickness are ethically connected as cause and effect ( Isaiah 33:24,     Psalms 103:3Matthew 9:2John 5:145:15). (Jamieson)

5 He was pierced for our lawlessness. He was crushed for our sins. He was punished so that we could have peace.  He was whipped, and {by His wounds} we were healed!

                        He was killed because of sin. Sin is the breaking of the Law! Christ did not come to take away the       Law, but to take away the punishment for breaking the Law. The Law is still in force and always be – we are   freed from the PENALTY of sin.   Romans 4:25  1 Peter 2:24

                        -a bodily wound; not mere mental sorrow; literally, "pierced" as I used here; minutely appropriate to   Messiah, whose hands, feet, and side were pierced ( Psalms 22:16). The Margin, wrongly, from a Hebrew        root, translates, "tormented."

We have all strayed like sheep. Each one of us has turned to go his own way, and the LORD(Jesus) has laid all our sins on Him.

                        We are all sinners (1 John).  In fact, if we say we have no sin, we are liars and the truth is not in us!    Why is there suffering today? This is the answer. We have all gone our own way, a way opposite of God's Way           (HIS LAW). And death and sorrow is our reward! Christ came to pay off this debt-with His blood. In         2 Corinthians 5:21; He was not merely a sin offering (which would destroy the antithesis to   "righteousness"), but "sin for us"; sin itself vicariously; the representative of the aggregate sin of all    mankind; not sins in the plural, for the "sin" of the world is one ( Romans 5:16Romans 5:17); thus we are      made not merely righteous, but righteousness, even "the righteousness of God." The innocent was punished        as if guilty, that the guilty might be rewarded as if innocent. This verse could be said of no mere martyr.

He was abused and punished, yet He never said a word! He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. He was like a sheep that is silent when its wool is cut off.

                                    He is our Passover lamb!            John 19:9

He was arrested, taken away, and judged. Who would have thought that He would be removed from the world? He was killed because of my people's sins.

                        Matthew 27:11-25    removed from the world-- He is in Heaven

                        Acts 8:33; translate as the Septuagint: "In His humiliation His judgment (legal trial) was taken          away"; the virtual sense of the Hebrew as rendered by LOWTH and sanctioned by the inspired writer of Acts; He was treated as one so mean that a fair trial was denied Him ( Matthew 26:5914:55-59). HORSLEY     translates, "After condemnation and judgment He was accepted."

He was laid in a tomb like a criminal. He was put there with the rich when He died, although He had done nothing violent and had never spoken a lie.

                        Christ fulfilled this by dying (by crucifying Him with two thieves, Matthew 27:38 and being buried in a rich man's unused tomb; his uncle two rich men honored Him at His death, Joseph of Arimathæa. Christ  never lied, only truth was in Him. The Devil is a liar and no truth is in him.

10Yet it pleased theLORD(Jesus) to punish Him with suffering. 

When YOU{God the father} make His life a sacrifice for our wrongdoings, He will have a multitude of children, many heirs. The will of the LORD(Jesus) will succeed through Him.

                        They were voluntarily borne by Messiah, in order that thereby He might "do Jehovah's will" ( John      6:38 , Hebrews 10:7Hebrews 10:9), as to man's redemption; so at the end of the verse, "the pleasure of the     LORD shall prosper in His hand."

                        The Margin rightly makes the prophet in the name of Yahweh Himself to speak in this verse.

11When He sees all that is accomplished by His anguish, He will be satisfied. And because of what He has experienced, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for He will bear all their sins.

                        Yahwehis still speaking according to Jamieson. my . . . servant--Messiah ( Isaiah 42:152:13).

            

12 So I will give Him a share among the mighty, and He will divide the prize with the strong, because He poured out His life(soul-nephesh) in death and He was counted with  the sinners. He carried the sins of many. He intercedes for those who are lawless {sinners}.

                        IN DEATH-- Jesus died, just as we do. His soul DIED! The word here in Hebrew is nephesh, translated “soul” by the KJV. The same word used in Genesis chapter 1 “and man became a living soul-nephesh.  The best translation for nephesh is a living being- and when speaking of death, the best translation is dead being, or as I translated this here “his life in death.” If not for the power of the FATHER and the resurrection, Christ would still be in the grave awaiting the resuurection of the dead. We see later that ONLY Christ, thus far, has been “born again,” or resurrected from the dead. All of the rest of mankind are still in their graves sleeping! See 1 Corinthians 15.

                        Isaiah 53 plainly speaks of the suffering Messiah – and only Jesus Christ fulfilled this prophecy- HE IS OUR LORD and SAVIOR.


Is the Devil Your Scapegoat?

The Scapegoat by William Holman Hunt (1827-1910)The Scapegoat by William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By Bob Barney- The Plain Truth

 

Today is the Day of Atonement, a day in Old Testament times with great symbolism and ceremony about the forgiveness of sin, and restoration to God's presence for all mankind. In Leviticus 16, we read about the Day of Atonement, and learn some fascinating facts often overlooked. For one thing, we read that the Day of Atonement is a 24 hour period covering two days of the week. Contrary to the Jewish practice of beginning the day in the evening, God's Day begins in the morning, at sunrise. In Leviticus 23:32 we can clearly read that the day of fasting and prayer starts at sundown on the 9th day of the 7th month, and ends 24 hours later on sundown on the 10th of the month. 32 This will be a Sabbath day of complete rest for you, and on that day you must deny yourselves. This day of rest will begin at sundown on the ninth day of the month and extend until sundown on the tenth day.”

Tonight starts the real Day of Atonement

Foreward by Bob Barney: I realize that Jews follow a different Day of Atonement, but as I addressed at Passover time, God's Calendar is not the Jewish Calendar of today. I won't bother to get into that subject now, but for Christians, understanding God's Holy Days are very important to understand just who Christ is and why the so-called Old Testament is vital to understand the real Jesus and what our future holds. Starting tonight until the end of Wednesday Day (at sunset) is God's Day of Atonement.... The following is an article written 50 years ago by Herbert Armstrong...

Day of Atonement, or the Fast

Atonement1Next, let us read Leviticus 23:26, 27, 31-32: "And the LORD spake ... saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls [fast] ....Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath." Wonderful mystery! At-one-ment with God! Man at last made one with his Maker!

     Again, in the 16th chapter of Leviticus, verses 29 and 31, where the symbolism of the Day of Atonement is explained, we find it instituted a holy Sabbath to be kept forever: "And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you ....It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever."

Meaning Pictured by Day of Atonement

The Day of Atonement pictures a wonderful and great event, to take place after the Second Coming of Christ, which the world is in total ignorance of because it has failed to see the true significance of these annual Sabbaths holy unto the Lord. It has failed to keep them as a constant reminder of God's plan of redemption!

     The symbolism is all expressed in the account of the events of the Day of Atonement, as carried out before the crucifixion, in the 16th chapter of Leviticus.

     Verse 5 -- "And he [Aaron, or the high priest] shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering ...."

     Verse 6 -- The high priest offered a sin offering for HIMSELF and his house.

    image from www.wawaseebible.com  Verses 7 and 8 -- "And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; the one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat" (margin, Hebrew, Azazel).

     Now because this has not been understood -- because there are many different views and opinions and ideas and explanations of this, we here pause sufficiently to go into this in some detail. Let us, therefore, regardless of our own former convictions, study with open minds, without prejudice, proving all things. We want truth!

     The key to the whole explanation lies in a correct understanding of the meaning of Azazel. This word does not occur elsewhere in the Old Testament. The Comprehensive Commentary has: "Spencer, after the oldest opinions of the Hebrews and Christians, thinks Azazel is the name of the Devil, and so Rosen ....The word scapegoat signifies the goat which went away." The One Volume Commentary says: "The word 'scapegoat' in the A.V. is not a translation." It is merely an interpretation of the supposed meaning by the translators.

     True, the English word "scapegoat" signifies "one who bears blame or guilt for others." But "scapegoat" is an English word, and is not a translation of the Hebrew word Azazel. The word "scapegoat," and the meaning attached to this English word, is not a translation of the Hebrew word Azazel, and therefore it is not the word inspired originally. Continues the One Volume Commentary: "Azazel is understood to be the name of one of those malignant demons."

Types of Christ and Satan

These two goats were, of course, types. Notice, it was necessary to be decided by lot, which one was qualified to represent Christ, and which Azazel. Some say BOTH were qualified. The scripture does not say this. Let us not assume it. Now a "lot" is a solemn appeal to God to decide a doubtful matter. It is a sacred religious ceremony. It included a supernatural act of God. That is why lotteries and gambling are of the devil -- an actual profaning of a holy service appealing to God.

     Notice, men were unable to decide which goat was qualified to represent Christ. This involved an appeal to God to decide! "One lot for the Lord, and the other lot for Azazel." Now one lot was for the Lord -- this goat typified Christ -- but the other lot was not for the Lord, did not typify Christ, but Azazel -- Satan! These words most naturally suggest that Azazel is the name of a person, here contrasted to the Eternal! Notice the contrast -- one for the Lord, the other for Azazel.

     Now the goat which God selected -- through lot, to represent Christ -- was slain, as Christ, its anti type was slain. But the other goat selected by God to represent Azazel was not slain, but was driven, alive, into an uninhabited wilderness. It was not a resurrected goat, symbolizing the resurrected Christ, for it never died. The uninhabited wilderness, to which this goat was driven, cannot, as we shall show, represent heaven, where Christ went. Heaven is neither uninhabited, nor a wilderness.

     After God designated which goat represented Christ and which Azazel, the high priest (verse 11) killed the bullock for a sin offering for himself, then took the burning coals of fire and the sweet incense into the Holy of Holies, also sprinkling the blood of the bullock before the mercy seat, typical of the throne of God, covering the tables of testimony (the law). This the high priest was required to do in order to purify himself to officiate, and to represent Christ as High Priest. In the anti type, this was not done, for Christ, our High Priest, had no need of this purification as the typical substitutionary priests did.

     Now the Levitical high priest was ready to go out and officiate.

     Next, the goat which God selected by lot to represent Christ, as the sin offering of the people, was killed. Thus the sins of the people were borne by the goat, even as Christ, finally, once for all, bore our sins on the cross. But Christ rose again from the dead, and ascended to the throne of God in heaven.

     Now, who, or what, from this point on in the Levitical ceremony, typified the resurrected Christ, who went to heaven? Some say the goat representing Azazel. Let us see.

     The risen Christ, now at the right hand of the throne of God in heaven (I Peter 3:22), is called -- what? Our High Priest! What was the earthly type of God's throne? The uninhabited wilderness? No! That is where the live goat went!

     The earthly type of God's throne was the mercy seat in the Holy of Holies. After Christ died, He went to the heavenly mercy seat interceding for us, as our High Priest. "... Entereth into that within the veil; whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec" (Heb. 6:19-20).

     Now, again, who, or what, in the Levitical ceremony of the Day of Atonement, typified the risen Christ, our High Priest, who went within the veil to God's throne in heaven? The one goat had been slain. It represented the slain Christ. It can no longer represent the risen Christ. The slain Christ was not our High Priest, because the Levitical priesthood, with its high priest, did not end until Christ rose from the dead and ascended to heaven as a High Priest after the order of Melchisedec. But the risen Christ was High Priest. Now WHO took this part in the Levitical ceremonies, temporarily re-enacted year by year, on this eternal Holy Day? Why, so obviously a child could see, it was the Levitical high priest, not the goat representing Azazel!

Tonight is the Day of Atonement and IT IS FOR CHRISTIANS!

By Bob Barney

image from wp.production.patheos.comI know many Christians in the world understand that Jesus Christ, a Jew, followed the Old Testament (Mosaic) holidays.  Probably fewer comprehend that for nearly 100 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus, His followers still observed the same holy days.

One of these annual Holy Days is called in English "The Day of Atonement."  It is a very solemn 24-hour period of time over 2 calendar days, when we are to "deny ourselves."  This means to fast- or abstain from food and water for the 24 hour period.  The Day of Atonement does not occur on one day, as the Jews, and most of the observant Christians think it does!  Just a simple reading of scripture proves this. Many have read Leviticus 23:27 "The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present a food offering to the LORD." and assume that it is. However, when one understands that God's day begins at dawn, the next few verses become very clear. "It is a day of sabbath rest for you, and you must deny yourselves. From the evening of the ninth day of the month until the following evening you are to observe your sabbath.

Clearly, if the day began in the evening, the writer would not say that the fast starts on the evening of the 9th!  It would have been, the evening of the 10th!  NOWHERE ARE EVENING DAYS JUSTIFIED IN YOUR BIBLE!  Any honest biblical scholar knows that the Bible shows the day beginning with LIGHT. "Let there be light"- and the first day began!

Clearing up the misconception of the true calendar, why do Christians observe this Holy Day? The answer is simple. They are following the example of Jesus Christ, His apostles, and the true Church of God of the first century! The church of the Apostles continued to observe the annual holy days established by God in the Old Testament, including the Day of Atonement for over a hundred years, until a great FALSE CHURCH in Rome changed it! They claimed the right to do so! "The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ." "The Pope has the authority and often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ." -Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap. (The Pope can modify divine law.) Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary.  

image from www.cofac.orgOn the Day of Atonement, Christians humble themselves before God by fasting, remembering the awesome sacrifice of the Lamb of God, the Messiah, Jesus Christ, whose blood atoned for our sins. The Hebrew word for Atonement literally means “to cover over.” Our death penalty has been paid for us, and our sins have been buried, or “covered over.” In ancient times, the high priest enacted a fascinating, meaning-laden ritual of purification and atonement for his sins and the sins of the people. Study Leviticus the 16th chapter to understand all the types. Two goats were to be presented by the priest before God. One was "for the Eternal," and the other an Azazel, called a "scapegoat." The Azazel goat was to have all the sins of Israel symbolically placed upon its head, and then was to be led in the hands of a "fit man" who would not allow the goat to turn back into the distant wilderness, where it would be released. Contrary to popular belief, this goat represent Satan and NOT CHRIST!  God's gracious act of love toward us, is taking our sins (forgiving them through the blood of Christ-the first goat) and placing them on our scapegoat--- SATAN!  Yes, we blame Statn for our sins, but in reality, most of our sins are OUR SINS, not Satan's!  Satan just gets the punishment fore them, hence Satan is our scapegoat!

In the New Testament we read, "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us..." (Hebrews 9:7-12).

Paul wrote, "Moreover He sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

"It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

"For Christ is not entered into the holy place made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

"Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year [on the Day of Atonement!] with blood of others...but now once in the end of the world [age] hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself" (Hebrews 9:21-28).

image from www.ingodsimage.comAs you can see from Paul's example, to understand Christ's mission for us, we have to understand the Holy Days that Christ Himself created!  Christ is the LORD of the Old Testament, not God the Father!  These Holidays were made to show the way to HIS EARTHLY MISSION! Without these days, we cannot understand the gift of God!

We are to follow this day, like all of the Holy Days, not in remembrance of ancient Israel, but as a tribute to the God who freed our souls from death!

This is way we do the Fast CHEERFULLY and with a solemnity as well. 

 


3 Things Christians Should Know about the Day of Atonement

By Bob Barney

Tomorrow nite starts the Day of Atonement (Sept 24th) at sunset and ends the following day (25th) at sunset.

#1 The Day of Atonement proves when the Day begins

(The following excerpt is from Joe Kovacs' book The Divine Secret -click on link to buy it!)
In the fall, in the seventh month, the Day of Atonement (called Yom Kippur in Hebrew) takes place, and the Bible specifically instructs:
 
"It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath." (Leviticus 23:32 NKJV)
 
Now, I can understand why many people rush to these two verses and assert something like, "See?! The words on the page show us that every single day starts in the evening!"
 
But do they actually say that? As a matter of fact, they don't. Let's be clear. These two verses do not say anything specifying when days in general begin or end. They are ambiguous at best. They are merely telling when to observe the festivals. The very fact that they mention evening here while other annual sabbaths such as Pentecost or the Feast of Tabernacles (or even typical calendar days) do not mention evening suggest they're an exception to the pattern of the morning day which had long been established since creation week!
 
Day of Atonement
 
Let's look at the Day of Atonement to help you understand what I mean. Here's what the Bible says about it in the Torah:
 
"Also the TENTH DAY of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.
 
"And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God.
 
"For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people.
 
"And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people.
 
"You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
 
"It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the NINTH DAY of the month AT EVENING, FROM EVENING TO EVENING, you shall celebrate your sabbath." (Leviticus 23:27-32 NKJV, emphasis added)
 
God places the Day of Atonement on the tenth day of the month, but interestingly, it's commanded to be observed from the ninth day of the month at sunset, to the following evening, the evening of the tenth. Many people think this is saying the ninth day of the month ends at sundown and that's when the tenth day of the month begins. But those words are simply not on the page. Again, the very fact that two different calendar days – the ninth and the tenth – are mentioned instead of one calendar day is more proof that there's a calendar-day change between the start and end of this Atonement festival.
 
To put this in modern perspective, if you're renting a car for a 24-hour period, you actually rent it over two calendar days. Let's say you need a rental car from 6 p.m. on the ninth day of the month until the following evening, 6 p.m. on the tenth day of the month. That's a 24-hour period, but there is a change in the calendar day from the ninth to the tenth of the month in the midst of the rental. In our modern age, the day change takes place at midnight. But in ancient Israel, the calendar-day change for the Day of Atonement would have been at sunrise! Again, there are TWO calendar days mentioned for this holy day. The ninth and the tenth! If every single day truly started at sunset in the evening, there would be absolutely no need to tell us to observe the day from evening to evening, since everyone would already be aware that ALL days began at sundown. If such were the case, Scripture would just say to observe it on the tenth of the month, without having to give any extra language about observing it from evening to evening. The reason the evening is mentioned for Atonement and not for the Feast of Tabernacles, for instance, is because Tabernacles is following the general rule of days beginning at sunrise, and Atonement is something out of the norm.
 
Now, why might God be instructing the Day of Atonement to be observed from evening to evening instead of morning to morning? Let's remember that God commands His people to afflict their souls, and this is understood to mean going without eating and drinking for 24 hours. It's a full day's worth of fasting. The New Testament even refers to this holy day as "the fast" in Acts 27:9. So, by having this holy day begin on the previous calendar day of the ninth day of the month at sundown, it means by the next morning, when people are awake, they would already be hungry. For this annual Sabbath, God actually wants people to have some sense of hunger, afflicting their souls, during the time they're awake! By commanding them to stop eating at sunset from the previous day is a guarantee they'd be afflicted with hunger pangs all through their waking hours on the tenth day. Otherwise, if the festival started at sunrise, people could have eaten all through the night and then not be quite as famished throughout that tenth day.
 
#2 Christ is in Atonement!  All of God's Holy Days represent Christ. Many Christians think atonement is only some Old Testament, Mosaic law thing, but in reality the Bible shows us that the ancients saw the need for atonement long before the time of Moses. When Adam and Eve committed the first sin, they hid from God because they were ashamed (Gn 3:8). God, by killing an animal, and using the skin to cover the naked bodies of the two, began the redemption of sin thru blood, that was finished with Christ Himself dying for our sins. CHRIST IS OUR ATONEMENT! While animals served as temporary sacrifices for our sins during the OT era, they could not ultimately atone for humans (Heb 4:10). We needed God Himself, who created everything to die for His creation to take away all sin!

Jesus Christ is both the subject and fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy. Read Isaiah 53 for yourself.   It is NEVER READ by most Jews today!

#3.   The Day of Atonement will be observed in the millennium! Reading of Ezekiel 42-46 shows that during the millennium there will be all the principal Holy Days first seen in the Old Testament. The early church also followed this day. Acts 27:9 "Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them..." 

Although NOT REQUIRED, God is pleased when people follow this Holy Days that He will command you to follow when He returns!  How do you follow?  Simply eat no food, drink no water from 6PM tomorrow night (Sept 24th) until 6 PM the following Day.  Ask God's Blood to atone for your sins, love God and obey His every word, found in ALL Bible translations.

 


Day of Atonement (Christian holiday)

By Bob Barney

THE TRUE DAY OF ATONEMENT IS COMING ON THIS TUESDAY NITE AND LAST until Wed. the 25th until 6PM ! (It is always on the night of September 24th and the day of the 25th!)  Don't be fooled by pagan traditions... Read about it here and prepare for it! It's the least you can do for your God, and the one who suffered and died 4 U!

Atonement1

Forward:  Most of the following is from Wikipedia and is not my words. The basic fact is that this holy day is not only biblical, it should be followed today, and it will be required in the millennium for all to observe. The fact that our position on the calendar differs substantially from the Jewish calendar and most of the Sabbath observing world is based on what the Bible itself claims about God's calendar. The lunar/solar calendar observed by most Jews is simply not Biblical and in fact, is of Babylonian heritage. It is a different calendar than Moses followed, nor is it the calendar that the  Essenes followed. It is very doubtful Jesus followed it, as his Passover was a full day before the Jews. I know the claim that the Last Supper was instituted a day before the real Passover (as Herbert Armstrong maintained) but the Bible plainly shows that Jesus' last supper was on Passover! Clearly, the Jews were not observing the same one. Historians such as Roland  DeVaux have proven quite convincingly that the ancient Hebrew calendar was only 360 days long, comprising of 12-30 day months. Five and every 4  years, 6 days were added   at the end of the year to make up for the shortfall created by a 360 year in a real world time of 365-1/4 day solar year

Vegetarian's Do Kills Animals Too! Why we do - what we do!

VegetarianismVegetarianism (Photo credit: Marius!!)

By Bob Barney

One reason I most commonly hear from vegetarians for giving up meat is the conviction that other animals have a right to life as well as humans. Their sincere belief in preserving other life is like most liberal causes (and yes it is a liberal cause, whether you want to believe it or not) based on the lack of understanding just how food is produced, or for that matter, how anything is produced.  We live in a ready made world, going to work from 9-5, and buying everything we need from some store, which purchased that item from hundreds, if not thousands of miles away.  Most of us today don't have a clue what it takes to grow an apple, or wheat, corn and yes, beef! We don't know how our clothes are made, or where they are made and by what sort of forced labor. We are blissfully ignorant of the world around  us.  You see, one must be ignorant of reality in order to be a liberal. You will never find a liberal on a deserted island, or living amongst natives in some wilderness setting. Liberals don't live very long, once their beloved “nature” controls their destinies.

Nobody's hands are free from the blood of animals, not vegetarians or anyone else.  Millions of animals are killed every year to prepare land for growing crops, "like corn, soybean, wheat and barley, the and the whole host of “organic” foods." The animals killed in many cases are mice and moles and rabbits and other creatures that are run over by tractors, or lose their habitat to make way for farming. These are the unintended victims of agriculture. Are their lives any less sacred than say, a goat? So one must honestly answer this: "What makes it OK to kill animals of the field so that we can eat veggies, but not venison, fish, chickens or cows?"  The cold hard facts are that any disruption of the land, whether it be to farm or to build homes and malls, reduces the amount of land left for other animals, resulting in their deaths.

And for those vegetarians who consume dairy, eggs and wear clothes made of wool, are they honest about not killing animals? Nope... If you buy milk, cheese, eggs, or woolen shirts-- it may be true in theory that you aren't killing these animals for their “goods,” but the fact is in order to supply you with these products, you are! All modern farmers, trying to eek out a living providing cheap food aren’t just going to let their animals die of old age; they kill them at whatever point the farm considers to be the most profit-maximizing. For dairy cows, that’s usually at age 3-5, out of a natural 20-25 year lifespan. For egg-laying hens, it’s usually after one or two laying cycles. And since the males of the laying species are useless to the egg farmer, they’re killed right after they hatch. These, are the cold hard facts.

English: Dairy heifers The milking dairy cows ...English: Dairy heifers The milking dairy cows are in for the winter now, but as the weather is fair the heifers (young females) are still outside. When they reach 350 / 400kg in weight they will put in calf and 9 months later will begin their life as a dairy cow. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

A vegetarian diet must kill far fewer animals than an omnivore diet, right? Not always! Here is an example:  Eggs. While you only need to kill one single cow to get about 450 pounds (405,000 calories) worth of meat, you’d need to kill about 20 chickens to get enough eggs to match that number of calories. So if you’re a vegetarian who eats a lot of omelets, you’re likely responsible for more animal deaths than someone who chows down on burgers and steaks but doesn’t like eggs! Never thought of that did you?

Here is a link to look at to find some more information: 

I’ve scrounged up data on the typical amount of meat, eggs, and dairy that we get out of a modern farm animal, and combined it with data on the calorie counts of those foods. That allowed me to calculate the number of calories of food that we get out of each type of animal, or more to the point, the “lives-per-calorie” statistic for each food. The results are below, with the foods ordered from “kills the fewest animals per calorie” to “kills the most animals per calorie.” (All numbers are approximate, of course, but they’re from as recent and reliable sources as I could find. Detailed citations are at the end of this post.)

*The yield for a laying hen over its lifetime is actually about 550 eggs, but I’ve divided it by two because approximately one male chick is killed for each laying hen.


The lives-per-calories cost of eggs is so many times higher than that of beef that even a small amount of eggs outweighs the life cost of a larger amount of beef. So let’s say you’re a vegetarian and you go out to lunch with your omnivorous friend, where he orders a burger and you order an egg-salad sandwich. The two eggs in your sandwich are only 150 calories, compared to the 300 calories in his beef patty, but the eggs cost almost 9 times as much life as the beef.

Of course, as I said earlier, these calculations are only concerned with the question of taking animals’ lives. They don’t take into account the amount of suffering the animal experiences. That would change the calculations somewhat, but I suspect the overall verdict would remain similar if you were looking at suffering-per-calorie – or, if anything, things would look even grimmer for egg-lovers. Laying hens arguably lead some of the most miserable lives out of all livestock, spending all their time crammed into cages with less space than half a piece of paper, having their beaks cut off, and being starved to induce molting. (Although the male chicks would count less if you’re looking at suffering-per-calorie, since their lives are so short.)
These calculations also don’t take into account impact on the environment. Raising beef is pretty clearly the worst industry in terms of things like producing greenhouse gases, breeding antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and requiring huge amounts of farmland just to feed the cattle. So there’s still a good case for choosing eggs over beef in the sense of minimizing your environmental impact, but that doesn’t change the fact that you’d be making a tradeoff: killing more animals to hurt the environment less.
Citations:

According to the USDA, the average dairy cow produced 21,000 lbs of milk last year, and according to several sources, the average dairy cow is culled from the herd after about 3 years, so I multiplied 21,000*3 to get the average amount of milk produced over the lifetime of a dairy cow. It takes about 1 gallon of milk to produce 1 lb of cheese, and there are about 8.5 lbs of milk per gallon, so I divided 63,000 lbs by 8.5 to get the 7,400 lbs of cheese figure.


The figures on beef and pork come from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture.
The average number of eggs per laying hen per year comes from the USDA, and I multiplied by two because that’s the most common figure I found for the number of laying cycles. The average weight of a broiler chicken I got from the USDA’s annual Poultry Slaughter publication.
And by the way, doesn't harmful insects have the same right to life as humans? Are most vegetarians willing to eat apples with worms in them – and if they are, what do they do with that live worm when they find it?

And if insect lives are as valuable as a human, how about bacteria. Bacteria is animal life. In order for vegetarians to digest their wholesome organic grains and grasses, trillions, of bacteria get killed in the process!  So, you better stop taking those pro-biotics, because you are brutally slaughtering animal life.

One last point... Iron.  Most are unaware that the iron found in spinach often comes from fertilizer, made up of, you guessed it BLOOD from cows.. This is an organic way to get iron back into depleted dirt!..


Seriously, it's about time we stop falling for the liberal lies that we were raised on. Both conservatives and liberals have been fed a bunch of lies. We need to start using the brain the God gave us to start thinking about why we do what we do...

It turns out that some die hard Trump supporters are dumber than Obamaites!

By Bob Barney

image from www.bluedevilhub.com   Before getting bashed by the zombie Trump supporter let me state that I wanted Trump to be president. I have done very well in the Trump years, and so have most small business owners that I know.  Trump has been great for the economy so far, with little help from his own party and no help from the media or the democrats.   That being said, I am beginning to see a new phenomena out there that I haven't seen since Obama was elected - The zombie-hero worshipping fan that knows everything about nothing.  The stupidity of those that supported Obama, and considered him to be a God-like figure, which, at the time,  I wrote about in disgust 11 years ago, has now been supplanted with the moronic EVER-TRUMPER.  You see them every-time a negative story comes out about him.  To these nitwits (and that is what they are) Trump is a God-like figure that can do nothing wrong.  He is a genius (probably the smartest guy who has ever lived) that controls everyone and everything, just like God.  According to "Q" he planned the Russian collusion fiasco that backfired on the left.  They suggested that Mueller and Trump planned the entire investigation together.

     Any news that doesn't portray Trump has the greatest human being to have ever existed is demonized as left winged journalism. Here is an example from the Daily Caller (hardly an anti-Trump new site, once controlled by Tucker Carlson.):

Headline:

US Steel Announces Layoffs In Michigan, Hurting Trump’s Claims Of An Industry Revival

The story shows that the steel industry, which Trump touts as his greatest achievement is doing poorly. The United States Steel Corporation plans to lay off fewer than 200 workers at a Michigan facility, according to the company’s filings with the state of Michigan. News of the layoffs comes after President Donald Trump said last week at Shell Pennsylvania Petrochemicals Complex in Monaca, Pennsylvania that his 25% tariff on foreign imports helped change the steel business from “dead” to “thriving.” (By the way, the thousands of Shell employees at his rally were paid to be there by Shell Oil!)

The Plain Truth is that while domestic steel prices rose immediately after Trump’s tariffs, they have also fallen as auto and farm machinery sectors weaken demand, according to Reuters. Hot-rolled coil prices have fallen almost 37% since 2018 and U.S. Steel’s stock price dropped 73% since March 2018.

Trumpites got mad at this fake news:  Some examples of their ramblings on the comment section of the story:           

It's all Dump Trump all the time.

Our national security, known as our manufacturing base, was sold to China over the past 35 years.

Clinton, both Bushes, and The Black Jesus are to blame.

Trump is the ONLY President who forsees a massive war loss to China, if we continue down this road.

Our leftist press could not be happier at that prospect.

 

Tariffs help the steel industry but hurt farmers, who buy less farm equipment, which reduces sales of steel. Tariffs are a very blunt instrument of trade and cause effects far and wide.
And now we have to believe Reuters? They are anti Trump, anti American and fake. Wake me up when/if they change the ‘may lay off’ to ‘they did lay off’. They won’t. It’s the same with the ‘alleged crimes’. All fake news and I am sick and tired of them.
More fake news from the leftist media! The ultra liberal intellectual elites want the American people to believe Mr. Trump is failing but patriots are too smart for them! Propaganda and treasonous statements against our president are easy to see through and we laugh at the lies! Mr. Trump and real Americans are winning and nothing can change that reality!
John T -- When a tariff is put on steel, steel prices go up. That's good for the steel producer (which is the whole point of the tariff) but bad for any business that uses steel to make products, because they have to pay more for their steel. Since more businesses use steel than make steel, more businesses are hurt than helped.
Mr. Trump knows exactly what he's doing and the American people support him in his mission to make America great again!

 There you see it, state a fact that is undeniable true, and the EVER TRUMPER'S answer?   "Mr. Trump knows exactly what he's doing and the American people support him in his mission to make America great again!"

That's why poll after poll Trump has over a 50% disapproval number. Oh that's right polls don't count anymore - so why does Trump quote any poll that he likes?

Here is a list of Trump promises and what his EVER TrUMPERS say today:

EVER TRUMPER- "Trump never promised a total wall and he never said that Mexico would actually pay for it directly," but here is Trump's promise in his own words on video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J9y6s_ukBQ

EVER TRUMPER:  Trump Promise:   "We will end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths. Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars, and we will work with Congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that do assist federal authorities.”  And he is working to do that!

FACT: Despite efforts, and yes he has tried,  Donald Trump fails to cut funding from sanctuary cities. Trump was unaware I guess that a president is not a dictator. Courts must rule on policies and Congress must approve spending
 
Here are some other things Trump said that his Ever Trumpers get mad when you mention:

Remove criminal undocumented immigrants

The Promise:

“A Trump administration will stop illegal immigration, deport all criminal aliens, and save American lives.”

Fact: More criminals than ever are in the country illegally are not being deported, even at the rate Obama deported them!

End birthright citizenship

The Promise:

"End birthright citizenship."

The Fact: Donald Trump stalls on promise to end birthright citizenship, never mentions it.
 
The list goes on....
 
Here is my summary.  I want Trump to succeed, but honestly he is his own worse enemy- not the press.  Ronald Reagan faced the same rabid press in his day and OUTSMARTED THEM with humor, facts and intelligence.  All Trump has is bullying. Bullying will not work, and if he loses the working union man, if he loses the average Joe and Mary out there - he will loose to a communist!  America can survive, even thrive under a flawed Donald Trump, America can not survive a Bernie Sanders!
 
If Trump loses, the ever Trumper's will blame everyone but themselves and Trump; when in fact they both will be the real cause.
 

My Dad

My dad died on December 28 1998, a day after my youngest daughter's 13th birthday. My father was always my hero.  Unlike most kids from the 60's, I never felt a resentment to him, and thought for the most part that he was always right. 

Bob1060My dad was born on this day in 1922. He grew up very quickly and terribly hard during the depression. His father died when he was very young, forcing his family to be broken up and sent to various farms to work as cheap labor – slave labor. At 12 and 13 years old many kids like my dad, ended up living with farm families, just for a bed and a meal. Little pay – if any. They were often treated like mere slaves. Dad told me of times that he would have to stay in the kitchen, as the farmers real kids celebrated Christmas in the living room, opening their presents and having a great family gathering. Dad was not included. That's how he grew up in the real world - one that was often cruel and uncaring. Dad dropped out of school after the 8th grade in order to work. That experience made him sure that he would better himself, and that his family would never suffer as he had. For the most part he succeed, through hard work, and a sense of honesty and character. All who knew him respected him, most I would say looked up to him.

His story changed. Dad worked hard, often holding down two and three side jobs.  In The 1940's, he was still farming, and for a time ran the farm that was owned by the sister of the Warner Brothers!  He did well for himself, and by the late 40's was running the very same farm that I would one day sell corn from and put me through college. People noticed his hard work an especially his integrity.  dad didn't lie, cheat or steal from anyone. My mother was a devote believer; but my father was not outwardly religious - but had a great belief in God. Like Joseph in Egypt, he had a knack to turn things around and make people money. Soon this got the attention of the Nestle company, and Dad was hired and quickly worked his way up the ranks to a high paid management position. In doing so, we (his children) grew up in a storybook life. We lived well in the 50,'s 60's and 70's. As for me, I was good in school, went to college and ended up graduating at the University of Connecticut in the mid-70's.

Even during his Nestle's years, dad worked side jobs.  He still help work the farm owned by Mary Weaver, he mowed lawns, drove nighttime mail truck deliveries, and about anything else that would better his family.  We were the first family on our street to have a color tv (1963), The first to have 3 cars (by 1970), and the first to have a swimming pool (1967).  Dad worked hard, so his kids would not have to ever live as he did.  He was a success in that.

My dad lived into his 78th year, dying of complications from modern hospital mistreatment.  There is not a day I don't think of him

Happy Birthday Dad - until we meet again on that great day!


Anarchism in US History - Nothing New

Bob Barney-The Plain Truth

So when history repeats itself ( and it always does) EXPECT DEATH!

image from www.vintagecardprices.comAnarchists are not knew in American history, but sadly, most Americans have little knowledge of the extreme dangers this political group will bring us in the coming years. You need to know, and the media isn't reporting that Plain Truth about the left wing of The Democrat Party, who are anarchist!  

From Wikipedia: Anarchism in the United States began in the mid-19th century and started to grow in influence as it entered the American labor movements, growing an anarcho-communist current as well as gaining notoriety for violent propaganda by the deed and campaigning for diverse social reforms in the early 20th century. In the post-World War II era, anarchism regained influence through new developments such as anarcho-pacifism, anarcho-capitalism, the American New Left and the counterculture of the 1960s. In contemporary times, anarchism in the United States influenced and became influenced and renewed by developments both inside and outside the worldwide anarchist movement such as platformism, insurrectionary anarchism, the new social movements (anarcha-feminism, queer anarchism and green anarchism) and the alterglobalization movements.

This philosophy has caused world wars (YES WORLD WARS) assainations of world leaders, and a death toll that would rival Hitler!

A short list of the death toll that CNN, nor even Fox News is telling you:

  • Sept. 10, 1898. Elisabeth, Empress of Austria is stabbed by an anarchist.
  • July 29, 1900. Umberto I of Italy is assassinated by anarchist Gaetano Bresci.
  • Sept. 6, 1901. President William McKinley is shot by an anarchist.
  • Nov. 1919. Palmer Raids begin.
  • Sept 16, 1920. A bomb explodes on Wall Street killing 38.
  • The assisnation of Archduke Ferdinand, which caused World War 1 and 37 MILLION DEAD!

What is happening today in the streets of America, France and Asia, caused mainly by George Soros and Democrat leaders, will eventually lead to disaster, and possibly MILLIONS of death! This is not an exaggeration, it is the future if we do not put a halt to anarchy in the streets!

Anarchy refers to the state of a society being without authorities or a governing body, and the general confusion and chaos resulting from that condition. It may also refer to a society or group of people that totally rejects hierarchy. The father of anarchy is Satan the Devil himself. Satan represents lawlessness-the state of anarchy.   In 1 John 3:4 we see the ONL:Y DEFINITION of SIN in the Bible!  Yes, there is only one thing you can do to sin: "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." Sin is ANARCHY!  

Paul warns us in his writings, "Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.

4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God."

Don't be fooled, Satan is alive and well, and controls this earth age!  If you love God, you obey His Laws!  If you love Satan, you worship lawlessness.  


Absolute PROOF that hurricanes are not caused by man made carbon or anything else we do!

Bob Barney

I am sick of the nonsense that the Democrats, most media figures and FAKE SCIENTIST spew to the American public about global warming... IT IS A LIE. They know it's a lie, but this is Satan's way of making you give up your freedom and surrender to him and his minions, and rejecting God in the process! It's about time that the American people wake up to the coming authoritarian rule that the Democrats want to bring to America. Under the guise of "climate change" these Democrats, and many Republicans too, want to take away your God given, constitutional rights.  They want to dictate to you what to think and where you go and what you can do.  WE ARE AT WAR, and the Democrats want most of you DEAD!   Do not be stupid.

CNN says hurricanes are because of global warming.  Read the graph below to see that they are LYING!  And by the way, when the talk about the damage today, they don't have a clue of the thousands of AMERICANS killed each year before modern satellites.

Take a look for yourselves- open your eyes! A note:  Up until the 1930's we did not have accurate wind readings.  So many hurricanes were underreported and not even known!  The #'s before them may be even HIGHER!   Wind speeds defiantly were

Could Trump Could Be the Next George H.W. Bush??

Foreword:  Back in 2001, Saturday Nite did a skit, showing how no Democrat had a chance of beating Bush!  Few may remember that Bush had an 81% approval rating in July 1991. ONLY 13% disapproved his performance!   Trump has barely broken 50% approval at any time, and about the same disapproval... I understand that the totally blind and moronic EVER-TRUMPERS will only believe those polls that show Trump as a messiah, but the Plain Truth is Trump is heading for disater if he doesn't change his tone-- And if Trump is beat by any Democrat candidate running, AMERICA IS TOAST! (although it might already be!)

1 -- Donald Trump is dangerously close to becoming the first Republican president since George H.W. Bush to raise taxes. According to the Tax Foundation, if the tariffs already announced by Trump go into effect, they will amount to a $200 billion annual tax increase. That’s larger than the $165 billion average annual reduction in 2017’s Tax Cut and Jobs Act.

My View- Gun Control Laws Kill

English: Current Status of Shall Issue Laws in...English: Current Status of Shall Issue Laws in America (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By Bob Barney

It's about time Americans face up to the real cause of mass killings in America, and who is really responsible for the deaths in Aurora, Newtown, and San Bernardino, and now Virginia Beach- it's politicians, and the liberals who brought us gun control. We have been lied to by those who themselves are protected by people carrying guns. Does Chuck Schumer have armed body guards? How about nancy Pelosi, or President Obama? You know the answer.

 

The fact is that the same people taking away your constitutional right to bare arms, are protected by guns themselves. There are over 20,000 gun laws and regulations on the books in the USA. If those laws haven't made America safe by now, why should we think that one or two new laws would work?

How The Army Tried To Avoid Telling The Truth About Women In Ranger Training

The Plain Truth is that PC and lying will not make women stay alive in a real war, and this attitude will not allow America to win another war like World War II. We are being set up to fail, as the Bible prophesies. 

The impetus for Susan Katz Keating’s bombshell story in People diagramming the concerns from Ranger Instructors (RIs) about watering down of course requirements for women was a letter sent by a member of the House Armed Services Committee, Congressman Steve Russell of Oklahoma, to Army Secretary John McHugh. 

Russell was a highly-decorated infantry lieutenant colonel and Ranger School graduate who had a distinguished career of more than twenty years in the Army (including commanding a battalion that played a central role in capturing Saddam Hussein) before retiring and becoming a member of Congress. Russell’s letter asked the Army to provide all internal Ranger School documents related to the female candidates’ training and assessment, including “test scores, evaluations, injuries, pre-training and more.” 

Russell had spoken to several RIs who told him one story—that standards had been lowered and senior Ranger Training Brigade officials had unduly influenced the outcome of the course—while the Army was telling him another—that everything was the same as always. “The training of our combat warriors is paramount to our national defense,” Russell wrote to Secretary of the Army John McHugh. “In order to ensure that the Army retains its ability to defend the nation, we must ensure that our readiness is not sacrificed.”  (It’s worth noting that Russell also went out of his way to emphasize in his public statements that he did not, and would not, question the abilities or records of any of the individual candidates themselves. His concern was solely about the possibility that officials with their own agendas had improperly influenced the course and about the effects their actions would have on the Army.).  MORE
