This Friday 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. 

 

Atonement 2020 starts Thursday Night on the 9th and ends Friday night on the 10th of the 7th Month in God's Holy Calendar

 


My Dad

Repeating... Today would have been Dad's 98th birthday.  He's been gone 22 years now. Mom died this last July.  My tribute to him that I first wrote in 2010

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 of the Great Depression, which for many poor people really started in 1925! It was a world 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; I know I did. He was always my hero.  I grew up in the 60's when kids hated their parents, but that wasn't me, or my brothers.  Our parents sacrificed so we would have everything we wanted.  Yes, we had to work for those things, but we knew we would get them.

Dad's story changed dramatically and miraculously. 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, the movie studio brothers! He told me stories of all the movie stars in the 1940's that would come to the farm and how they told him that making movies was nothing like anyone would imagine. 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. His word was law, nobody ever needed anything but his word! 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 helped work on 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!

The Plannedemic - A Short Story: Mom's Death

Plannedemic

Repeating.... It's been 40 Days..... Already

By Bob Barney

Like in the famous TV show Dragnet, names have been changed in the story to protect the innocent.   Most of the following IS PROBABLY TRUE, but will not swear to it, as I am not sure the legality…...... I want to make sure no COVID NAZI could by any means think this is the story of anyone known and try to show laws were broken.... The reader can figure out the deal….

John got the call from his brother Chris that their mother was diagnosed with inoperable terminal stage four gallbladder cancer. The doctor said she had at most 4 to 6 months to live and sent her home with pain medicine to die. Chris had for many years taking care of their mother, as he lived home with her and took care of her. Chris never married. He had earlier decided to hire a nurse to help her during the day but now as the end seemed near, John and Chris decided to hire a nurse to stay overnight as well five days a week.

John’s daughters, their husband’s and children all decided to go visit their grandmother and stay with her for several weeks on and off. Since they all were a part of the same family's business, it was next to impossible for everyone to be together at the same time, although they could plan to do that on the weekends, all showing up on Friday night, where they could spend quality time with “Mom” before she would pass away. They were in for a great shock. All had seen Mom just several months ago, and at 90 she was very alert and active. Now, just turning 91, they were horrified to see her condition. She was not frail, bedridden and her mind was clearly not all there.

It’s a 9 Hour Drive from where they lived in Virginia to where John's mom was in Connecticut. They all decided to get rooms at a nearby motel. They were shocked when they arrived to see what Connecticut had actually become during what they knew was the planneddemic!  Connecticut was more like communist Cuba, than the place they remembered just six months earlier.

The nation, especially the northeast where liberal democrats run the state governments, have used a badly over exaggerated coronavirus scare to lock down their states.  They mandated facemask’s as well as other unscientific procedures to “protect” their citizens from getting the so-called epidemic disease. Things in Connecticut were much worse than what was going on in Virginia.   Supermarket shelves were half empty, John’s brother Chris remarked “I think there’s more in a grocery store in Cuba than there is on supermarket shelf in Connecticut.   

Connecticut itself, was like a communist state. There were police everywhere, looking at license plates even at people’s homes, in parks, and in supermarkets. If they saw license plates from what they called a “banned state”—and Virginia was one of those, they would tow the vehicles and impound them if they were parked on any town property.  They then forced people into self-quarantine for 14 days. Both New York and Connecticut required all people register online upon arrival, then quarantine themselves for 14 days if they were from certain states. Virginia was one of them.  They even told hotels to report where their guests were from and placed a video camera to “inspect” people and their vehicles.  It was scary. The family had a business to run that would go bankrupt if all were captured and quarantined. It became obvious to the family that they could no longer be together in one place at home with John’s mom because if they were forced to self-quarantine in their hotel rooms they could neither take care of Mom or be able to get back to run their business during the week.  If they lost their business five different families would be out of jobs —-good paying jobs at that.

Their decision they made was forced upon them.  It would be that from now on they would take turns going back-and-forth and only one family would be with mom at one time. It was sad and made John very angry. His brother Chris, who is always been a very patriotic American, made the statement “I’ve actually come to hate this country.”

They all felt like Jews escaping the Nazi's in World War 2 Germany, or Corrie Ten Boom in the “Hiding Place.”   This was definitely not the America that they remembered.

Upon arriving for the second time, John and his family were surprised to see that his mom had perked up to see her grandchildren and great grandchildren especially. She seemed like there was nothing wrong with her for a brief moment, but there was. She basically refused to eat she would drink less than 5 ounces a day of Ensure for a week now. No amount of coaxing could get her to eat more, and everyone realized that she was not going to last more than a few weeks if she would refuse to eat. Evidently the growth in her stomach area was making her nauseous, as well as having no appetite.

John’s kids and grandchildren decided to leave the day before his mom would pass away, the moment they left it seemed that she had decided to give up hope of living she seem to shut down and start to die. It was very sad times, complicated by a totalitarian government that could at any time place them in house arrest. If caught they would be taken away from their purpose, and to make things more infuriating they knew all of this was nonsense—pseudo-science propagated by politicians.  If that wasn't bad enough, they were told by the funeral home that when Mom would die only less than ten people could be present at the graveside! And they were supposed to wear masks!  They would refuse that later!  John's children decided not to risk it, and decided after Mom was dead, and it didn't matter to her any longer, they would not come back for the funeral.  What a devastating decision they had to make to appease the heathen evil government.  The fact they were there for her when she was alive was what she really needed and wanted anyway. 

To make matters worse, when John and his wife went to the funeral parlor to pay $11,875 for a simple casket and graveside burial, they were told they couldn't even step on the porch to pay them!   They stood 20 to 30 feet away wearing masks shouting “stay away” from their building!   Of course, greed got the best of them and one very brave soul came forth to grab the check and run back to the safety of his sanctuary!  John thought disgustingly how easily the American populace had allowed these monstrous demons inspired leaders to tramp on the Constitution and take away every right that they had; Given to them by God Almighty and not by any man or government.

Later after Mom died, meeting at the open gravesite, the funeral home employees (wearing masks of course, standing a good 50 feet away), watched on TV the funeral of a black congressman, with every elitist Democrat sitting side-by-side in a church without wearing any mask at all! Hundreds of them!  Yet, regular Americans were forbidden to go to church.  But not the elitist Democrats, they were allowed, and nobody cared!  In church for a funeral, something banned in New York City.  Sitting side by side, less than a few inches apart, without masks, by the hundreds, attending a political funeral event showing to the world that they weren’t even worried about hiding this fact. It was like they were shoving it up the American people's ass, and that is what they were doing.

The next day was Sunday, John and his wife now were left alone to stand vigil over his mom.  Progressively over the day she began to fail rather quickly.  John spent the afternoon holding her hand and reading from the Bible to her.  She loved the 23rd Psalm more than anything and John would play the video of his granddaughter (mom's great granddaughter) reading it to her. She loved watching the video on John's phone over and over again smiling, then crying.  It was horribly sad indeed.

About 2 o’clock she started making a noise as she breathed, it’s called the death rattle, and although John was present when his father died, he was not present in the very final hours, when in all probability his father went through the same thing. His father died in the hospital not at home. If you look up the term death rattle on the web, you’ll read a very sobering description of how horrifying the sound is. It sounds as if the person is drowning with in fluid in their lungs; A gurgling sound that is very loud and very disturbing. John had looked it up and tried to convince the nurse, a very young woman who had not experienced anything like that before, and his wife that according to the experts, the person dying does not feel the pain of the death rattle, but it’s hard to believe it when you experience it. 

Web MD stated that it can last anywhere from a few hours all the way up to 48 hours, most lasting in the 12 to 24-hour range and there was nothing that could be done about it. Prayers now changed from allowing her to live a little longer, maybe several months or so, to allowing her to die quickly and peacefully and not suffer. It was something John had never thought he would ever pray for, that anyone he loved so much should die soon. It was against his nature.

A half hour went by, but it seemed like it was three hours. Then another half hour which seem like another three hours dragged by.   It was now 3:15 in the afternoon and the death rattle continued. It seemed like eternity.  Minutes seemed like hours. Every time John looked up at the clock, it was only another 10 or 15 minutes that had passed and and the death rattle continued.

They decided to try to move her around to lessen the noise, but the noise continued. They did this for the longest hour they’ve ever experienced in their life and although they tried to move her in positions to stop it, sometimes seem to work for a minute or two, the death rattle would continue, everyone was horror-stricken.

5 o’clock went by, 5:15, 5”30, then 6 o’clock, 6:03 to be exact, John’s mom stopped breathing, only to start breathing again at 6:05.  She was breathing again, but the death rattle was now louder than ever!  At 6:10 PM she stopped breathing again but started breathing very slowly at 6:11. “It's not much longer,” He exclaimed to everyone. I think she is going.”

At 6:12 she was breathing slowly but the death rattle had stopped!  It was peaceful, sad and heartbreaking to witness.  She was no longer grabbing John’s hand now and it felt limp, but she was breathing very – slowly.   At 6:15 there was no breathing anymore.  They waited for several minutes, John holding was her hand, her eyes were open and glassy.  I became evident by 6:18 PM that she had indeed died at 6:15. John whispered in her ear “I will always love you until we meet again in the resurrection”.   Her ordeal was over, John’s was continuing.

Four days later, John, his brother and wife stood by the graveside in front of the casket. And read part of 1 Corinthians 15, the resurrection chapter which clearly explains what death is, and where we go when we die.

                  “I’m telling you a mystery. Not all of us will die, but we will all be changed.  It will happen in an instant, in a split second at the sound of the last trumpet. Indeed, that trumpet will sound, and then the dead will come back to life. They will be changed so that they can live forever. This body that decays must be changed into a body that cannot decay. This mortal body must be changed into a body that will live foreverWhen this body that decays is changed into a body that cannot decay, and this mortal body is changed into a body that will live forever, then the teaching of Scripture will come true:

“Death is turned into victory!
 Death, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?”

Then again in 1 Thessalonians 4:: Brothers and sisters, we don’t want you to be ignorant about those who have died. We don’t want you to grieve like other people who have no hope We believe that Jesus died and came back to life. We also believe that, through Jesus, God will bring back those who have died. They will come back with Jesus. We are telling you what the Lord taught. We who are still alive when the Lord comes will not go into his kingdom ahead of those who have already died. The Lord will come from heaven with a command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the dead who believed in Christ will come back to life Then, together with them, we who are still alive will be taken in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, at His coming. In this way we will always be with the Lord.  So then, comfort each other with these words!

Yes, the dead sleep in their graves until the return of Christ, when Christians will be resurrected into spiritual beings, Gods born again children, never to die again.   The rest of the dead, will continue their sleep until after 1,000 years of Christ's rule here on earth.  Then the rest of the dead will awaken to final judgement and the hope of eternity too, or final death forever. Blessed are they who make the first resurrection, for they do not have to worry about this second death (Revelation 20).

Rest in Peace Mom, I’m sure you made the first resurrection.




Those willing to trade their freedom for security deserve neither

By Bob Barney

Liberty

My family and I, and all of those who understand Bible prophecy have been awaiting signs from God that will bring on the END TIMES, as spoken by Jesus in Matthew 24.

Today in the wake of a worldwide panic, caused by nit-witted world leaders and the press, many are panicking needlessly that The Great Tribulation has started... IT HAS NOT! Although we have biblically been in the END TIMES since the first century, waiting for Christ to return, we are not even close to the Great Tribulation, the terrible times that will come just 7 years before Christ returns, when upwards of 90% of the world's population will die... That's like 6-7 billion people - not the 2500 of coronavirus!

What we are witnessing today is fear based upon ignorance. God says in His word, "My people die because of their lack of knowledge," and so it is so today.  Hysteria and panic, caused by a severe cold-like virus has caused the world to shut down. Either we have the most stupid leaders today, or the most evil.  Whatever they are, they are going to find a backlash to their actions like they could never realize.

This is not the tribulation

Contrary to media reports, this is not the Tribulation.  The Tribulation will be when a real virus that can kill 2 billion occurs, when a great nuclear war will kill 2-3 billion and false religion will kill another billion or so!  We are not even close to that scenario ---yet.

The panic going around the world is being spread by fake news, and a task force that does nothing but spread hysteria to a panicked population. As I reported in many articles, this is not anywhere the pandemic that H1N1 was, or the Spanish Flu, or especially the Black Death in the Middle Ages that killed over 200 million people out of a population probably less than 600 million!   That's a third of everyone you know dying!  These plagues where of biblical proportion, not this one.

The problem is that world leaders are using this scenario to stop the rise of nationalism that has scared the heck out of them since the election of President Trump, and has been raging around the world. The Deep State elite has lost their power, and they are trying to get it back again, using fear to do so, not unlike those preachers who spread the fear of burning forever in hell if you don't obey them (a lie by the way, we do not go to a place of torment -EVER).  Dr Fauci is like the old time fire and brimstone preachers who preached fear rather than The Plain Truth.  More people in the world are still dying of the flu, than coronavirus.  More Christians around the world are being slaughtered for their beliefs than this so-called pandemic.

Ben Franklin understood just how governments gain control over their people.  Franklin once said: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

Patrick Henry added to this idea with his famous speech, "“I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided,” he said, “and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past."

God forbid if we choose to give up our liberty, because we fear dying.  Henry continued, “The war is actually begun!  Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty

I hope not!  Fear God, NOT what man can do. Paul wrote, "If God is for us, who really can be against us!"  That is as true today's it was then, some two thousand years ago.  We have nothing to fear if we have God who is in control of everything!

No, this is not the tribulation, so realize that the world is to continue.  It's a question of the rights that we will ignorantly give up.

During the Tribulation,  an event known as "The Riding The Four Horsemen" will occur, which will be God's wrath on the world.  Garner Ted Armstrong's 4 part series of what the four horsemen represent. They are, The The Rider on the White Horse, which represents FALSE CHRISTIANITY, The Rider on the RED HORSE, which represents unprecedented world wars, The third Horsemen, that rides a BLACK Horse, represents inflation, depression and famine, and the FOURTH HORSEMAN on a PALE-Green Horse that represents pestilence and Death.  

Matthew24aMany are not aware that the Four Horsemen prophecy mirrors Jesus' famous Olivet prophecy found in Matthew 24 when He is asked when the Tribulation will start and when the end of the world will be.  He told His followers this: “Watch out that no one deceives you. (White Horse)For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I, (Jesus) am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.  You will hear of wars and rumors of wars (Red Horse), but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.(Black Horse)  All these are the beginning of birth pains.

 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death(Pale-Green Horse), and you will be hated by all nations because of me.  At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,  and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.  Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,  but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."

We are in no way even close to these times, but they will happen!  God says so, and it's time that everyone prepares for what's next and draw near to Christ before the door to salvation is closed.  God is real, His word, the Bible is real and factual!  Prophecy is HISTORY before for happens!  It is like reading a newspaper describing an awful event, years before it is ever published!

AMERICA IS LOST ISRAEL

Usa and england tribesMany, including myself have written over the years articles proving who the lost ten tribes of Israel are.  Most in the world today do not know that Israelites are not Jews!  Only the tribe of Judah (with Levi and parts of Benjamin) make up modern and ancient Jews.  There are 10 other tribes that the Bible says were taken into captivity a 100 years before Babylon took the Jews into captivity.  These lost ten tribes were enslaved by the ancient Assyrian empire, who were the descendants of modern Germany (Read this incredible article on this HERE.)

The peoples of Western Europe (Denmark, France, Scandinavia, Ireland, Great Britain and Spain) are actually identifiable Israelite tribes.  America, the literal 13th tribe coming out of Joseph, and you can prove it.

Whenever you see prophecies in your Bible, you will see that some prophecies are especially for Judah (Jews) and some prophecies are written especially to "The House of Israel" and the House of Jacob.  This always refer to the lost ten tribes and especially Great Britain and America.  

Did you know that God told Jacob that one of his son's Joseph's desendents would make up the single most powerful nation in the world?  It's in the Bible.  Who has been the single most affluent powerful nation in the world?  

Jacob also knew that the firstborn son of Joseph would make up the most powerful commonwealth of nations.... England.  It's there for you to read for yourselves.  If God is real, and you believe the words of the Bible, you can only come to the conclusions above!

 

ISRAEL (America and the Western lost tribes) WILL BE DESTROYED BEFORE The Great Tribulation

I have stated many times, and will do so again. It makes no difference to your spiritual Christian fate if you understand who America is.  If you declare Jesus Christ as both God and Savior, AND YOU OBEY HIM, and not a church figure, then you will be saved!  Whether you follow the Sabbath, or Sunday ignorantly, it does not matter.  If you understand God's Holy holidays, or follow pagan Christmas and Easter, it doesn't matter - IF YOU BELIEVE and OBEY as best as God has informed you - YOU WILL BE SAVED!

However, being saved, and UNDERSTANDING prophecy are two distinct points.  To understand what is happening today, will happen tomorrow and beyond requires you to understand prophecy and WHO THE PLAYERS in THE END TIMES WILL BE! 

Once one realizes just who we are today, then that person can understand the prophecies that lie ahead. The "time of Jacob's trouble" comes from Jeremiah 30:7 that says, "Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it" (KJV). What is this "time of distress for Jacob"?  Jacob, is another name for Israel, as he was re-named Israel by Jesus (as the Lord of the Old Testament) after having a wrestling match with him! When Jacob blessed his grandsons (only Joseph's two boys), Jacob said, "Let MY NAME be given to these two lads."  His name Jacob would always refer to only the tribe of Joseph.

God had promised He would someday restore His people to prosperity, meaning the land of Israel. The Lord would save them from it. Jeremiah 30:8-9 make it clear that this time would be a period in which God's people no longer served other masters, but would serve the Lord and "David their king, whom I will raise up for them" (v. 9). This is during the millennium, which follows the Great Tribulation when Jesus rules here on earth for 1,000 years.

However, although probably closely (in God terms) near the Great Tribulation, God predicted that Jacob, or Israel -- would be destroyed by plagues, wars, fear and panic because they refused to obey the Laws of the Living God.  In my commentary,  I explain God's warning to the American people, written 4,000 years ago that reads like today's headlines!

God says that because we no longer obey His laws, and have turned our back on God, He would destroy us, and take us into captivity!  The Lord Jesus, THE GOD WHO SPEAKS IN THE Old Testament told Moses,   if you do not listen to me or obey all these commands,  and if you break my covenant by rejecting my statutes and treat my regulations with contempt, and refusing to obey my Commandments,    I will punish you. I will bring sudden terrors upon you—wasting diseases and burning fevers that will cause your eyes to fail and your life to ebb away. You will plant your crops in vain because your alien enemies will eat them.  I will turn against you, and you will be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you will rule over you, and you will run even when no one is chasing you!"

Does that sound like today? 

I know, and am convinced by the world of the Living God, that America will be destroyed, along with "lost Israel" of Western Europe, Canada and Australia.  It will happen.  Is this the way Satan (the father of lies and fake media, also known as the God of this world) will destroy the west through lies and panic?  That may be.  It is very possible.

GOD IS IN CONTROL

TimerunningoutFriends, I beg you, in the name of Jesus and the Father DO NOT PANIC as the rest are in these times. Regardless of whatever happens in this age, if you have Jesus you have life!  Do not worry about the life you have today, which will end whether it be today or not, set your eyes on the future life you will have with Jesus.  That is the message. God controls everything.

Paul writes concerning today and our people, "I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.  God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel:  “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”?  And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”   So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.  What then? What the people of Israel sought so earnestly they did not obtain.The elect among them did, but the others were hardened,  as it is written:

“God gave them a spirit of stupor,
    eyes that could not see
    and ears that could not hear,
to this very day.”

And David says:

“May their table become a snare and a trap,
    a stumbling block and a retribution for them.
10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,
    and their backs be bent forever.”

Satan, the God of this world cannot harm you if you are a true Christian unless God allows it!  Believe in Jesus and you become the "elect of God."  Jesus tells us again in Matthew 24, that we, the elect, actually will save the world from destruction!  Speaking of the Tribulation and the destruction of the world in a time worse than the great flood, that will never happen again, He says this: “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened."

Yes For OUR SAKE God will save the world from total destruction.

 

The God of this world is NOT in control

Some Christians who understand that Satan is the God of this world mistakenly think that Satan can do whatever he wants without the approval of God.  He cannot!  God has allowed Satan to rule on Earth and basically do whatever he wishes EXCEPT when it concerns one of God's people. There is no better example of this, than in the the book of Job.  

Job 1 and 2

In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.

He had seven sons and three daughters,

and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East.

His sons used to take turns holding feasts in their homes, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them.

When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would send and have them purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, "Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts." This was Job's regular custom.

One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them.

The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."

Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil."

"Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied.

"Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.

But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face."

The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger." Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.

One day when Job's sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother's house,

a messenger came to Job and said, "The oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby,

and the Sabeans attacked and carried them off. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!"

While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, "The fire of God fell from the sky and burned up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!"

While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, "The Chaldeans formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and carried them off. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!"

While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, "Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother's house,

when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!"

At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship

and said: "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart.  The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised."

In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.

Then another day came for the angels to meet with the Lord. Satan joined them for this meeting with the Lord.  The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you been?”

Satan answered the Lord, “I have been roaming around the earth, going from place to place.”

Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you noticed my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him. He is a good, faithful man. He respects God and refuses to do evil. He is still faithful, even though you asked me to let you destroy, without reason, everything he has.”

 Satan answered, “Skin for skin!  A man will give everything he has to protect himself.  I swear, if you attack his flesh and bones, he will curse you to your face!”

So the Lord said to Satan, “All right, Job is in your hands, but you are not allowed to kill him.”

 So Satan left the meeting with the Lord and gave Job painful sores all over his body, from the bottom of his feet to the top of his head.  Job sat on the pile of ashes where he was mourning and used a piece of broken pottery to scrape his sores.  His wife said to him, “Are you still holding on to your faith? Why don’t you just curse God and die!”

 Job answered, “You sound like one of those fools on the street corner! How can we accept all the good things that God gives us and not accept the problems?” So even after all that happened to Job, he did not sin. He did not accuse God of doing anything wrong.

The lessons of Job....

Three things that should be noted here:

1 Although Satan is the God of this world, He must ask God to do anything to a person under God's grace.

2 God sometimes allows us to be harmed, and we must accept whatever God Does!

3 God even admits to Satan that God was provoked and acted in a way He should not have! Have you noticed my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him. He is a good, faithful man. He respects God and refuses to do evil. He is still faithful, even though you asked me to let you destroy, without reason, everything he has.”

God allows things too happen to us, but we are to deal with it.

Paul again instructs us in Romans.

What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all!  For he says to Moses,

I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,
    and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”

 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. For Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.  Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.

 One of you will say to me: “Then why does God still blame us? For who is able to resist his will?”  But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?

 What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction? What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory— even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?  As he says in Hosea:

I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people;
    and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,” and,

In the very place where it was said to them,
    ‘You are not my people,’
    there they will be called ‘children of the living God.’”

 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel:

“Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea,
    only the remnant will be saved.
 For the Lord will carry out
    his sentence on earth with speed and finality.”

29 It is just as Isaiah said previously:

“Unless the Lord Almighty
    had left us descendants,
we would have become like Sodom,
    we would have been like Gomorrah.” Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority?

Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.

 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.  

For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.

For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?  But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

The Day Is Near (Even in Paul's time 2,000 years ago)

 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.  

The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.

So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy.

Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh

In conclusion friends, DO NOT FEAR ANYTHING IN THIS LIFE. Get yourself in alignment with God's will and you will be saved! Satan has no power over God's people! NONE, ZILCH!  God is in control, whether you like it or not.  Most I know, do not.

I will conclude my remarks again by the comforting words of Paul who says:

More Than Conquerors

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?  He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?  Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.  Who then is the one who condemns?  No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God Bless you all!  Believe in Him who Died for you!  Believe also in Him who resurrected Jesus and will do the same for you.

God Bless you, Friends!

In Christ name,

Soylent Green is made from PEOPLE! And so are many Vaccines!

By Bob Barney

image from fc01.deviantart.netMany of us remember Charlton Heston yelling to the crowd in a futuristic society (actually only 2022- 8 years away) ( "You've got to warn everyone and tell them! Soylent Green is made of people!" The plot goes like this: Earth is overpopulated and totally polluted; the natural resources have been exhausted and the nourishment of the population is provided by huge big corporation called Soylent Industries. They are a company that makes a food consisting of harmless, and nutritious plankton from the oceans, or so they say. Natural food like fruits, vegetables, and meat among others have become extinct. Earth is overpopulated and New York City has 40 million starving, poverty stricken people. The only way humanity can survive is by eating a mysterious food called Soylent Green. A detective, played by Heston, investigates the murder of the president of the multinational giant corporation. You know, the Halliburton of the day. The truth he uncovers is more disturbing than the Earth in turmoil when he learns the secret ingredient of Soylent Green. It's people!

Thank God that the story is only science fiction... Or is it?

Most are not aware that around the world, many vaccines are made from aborted babies! In order to promote a better life, we use the bodies of sacrificed babies, while we scoff at Bible versus which predicts child sacrifice in our day! Most smugly deny that we are like the pagan cultures of the past. We are modern, people proclaim, we don't believe in heathen cultures. Really? Are we that much different.

How many people would choose a drug to save them from a rare illness, if the cost to buy the medicine was the life of one of our children? We we trade our life, for that of our children? No you say, right?

WRONG! The Plain Truth is many vaccines made in the world today are made from aborted babies. How many of us are aware of this fact? Where you? Would that change your opinion of the vaccine industry?

One doesn't have to be all that spiritual to recognize that things are not going very well for citizens of the world right now, but most of us have no clue why things are going badly, and maybe spinning out of control. Today we are facing four worldwide problems which could kill millions of us, and for the most part, nobody knows why. No, I am not talking about Coronavirus, as it has been overblown and exploited by power hungry globalist and Democrats to gain control over the middle class.  According to the Bible, the four worldwide problems are really spirits which will eventually destroy up to 5 billion people worldwide! Interested? You should be, because whether you want to believe it or not, these problems affect you and your loved ones right now.

Many of us live our lives day by day. We work hard, but never seem to get ahead. Many don't want to watch or read the news because they just don't think that anything that is going on impacts them, or even if it does, there is nothing they can do to change anything. If you think this you are wrong!  Ten people could have saved Sodom, a huge city of its time.... God only found one!  Below I am lisitng the four major problems that are and will be affecting your life! Read them and see why you are living the life you are, and where you are going, and how you can change the direction of many things you do not believe you can right now.

Simply put here are the four worldwide problems that impacting all of mankind right now.

BIG TECH MERGING WITH BIG BROTHER?

By Bob Barney

Big Tech IS Big Government and always has been! Facebook won over MySpace, because they cooperated with the Feds to feed information on the American public.  Hell, Zuckerberg illegally faked the number of users to go public in a fraudulent scheme to bilk investors but notice he is not indicted!  50% of all Face Book accounts are FAKE!  People bought stocks based on fudged stats, provided by Facebook to the SEC! That's FRAUD!

Google, (simply short for Government OOOGling)  also won the search engine war, because they too are a spying arm for the government.  The Trump investigation into Russian collusion is an attempt by the Government to stop Trump from freeing the people of the DEEP STATE and big brother.  BE WARNED AERICA- Your government is YOUR ENEMY!

My Mom: July 8, 1929 -- July 26, 2020 Her life in pictures

Bob Barney

Yesterday at 6:15 my Mom lost her battle for life.  She fought hard to the end, but today I want to record her life, and a great life she had.  Later after some days will will give the rest of the story!

Mom was born in Canaan Ct, but moved to River Road in New Milford as a young girl, where her dad worked at the "Quarry" for New England Limestone.  I'll save that incredible story for a later time.

First published 7/3/2020

As far as I can remember my Mom has had a simple faith in God that has meant so much in my life.  So, I thought I would write this about her as she approaches her  91st birthday this July 8.

Several weeks ago, my brother Bill (who still lives with her back in Ct.) called me saying that mom was suffering from constant stomach pain, and he couldn’t get her to eat much.  After complaining of this for several days he took her to the doctor, who hospitalized her.  She is in the hospital now with a tumor on her gall bladder and we do not know at this time if it’s cancer or not; or even if she will live or die.  I ask everyone to pray for her.  However it is this, my tribute to my mom what this article is about.   She was always there for me and for our family and she defended us with everything a mother should against anyone that would harm any of us. She has always been a remarkable, strong willed and an independent woman.  However, what I remember most about Mom is her simple faith in God. Unlike myself, she has always believed, and her faith was genuine and real, never experiencing the doubt and unbelief that I did.

I started out believing in God as a child, but my “scientific” mind and my anti-God education; I came to reject that there was a God.  I always marveled at my mom who had that simple faith--- she just always believed in God.  She went to church on Sundays for a long time but eventually stopped going because she saw the hypocrisy of the church she was going to-- but that did not stop her belief in God! In short she had faith that a church didn’t have, a simple faith.  That faith always amazed me even when I was an atheist, I marveled at that faith, and her willpower and I wished that I could have a faith like that in a God. I’m sorry to say even though I have come to believe in God and believe in God strongly I still do not have the simple faith that my mom has had her whole life. Something I’m ashamed of, and it’s something that I’m struggling for. But she had it, even today.

Actually, mom is less afraid of death or I should say less afraid of her death then I am.  She’s ready to go, even though she knows what that really means.  She knows that she will not go to heaven when she dies to be with my dad. She fully understands the plain words of the Bible, that when she dies she, is going into the grave, to lie in the ground and wait until the resurrection, which only happens after Jesus Christ returns. She’s not fooled like most people, that she’s going to heaven to be with her husband who died some 22 years ago. She knows that she will be buried alongside dad and they will both have to wait until the resurrection. That’s her simple faith that I find amazing and spiritual. In fact Mom, your life has been amazing.

Mom was born in 1929 in the year of the great crash and grew up during the depression. However, unlike my dad, who lived in poverty and was forced to leave school at 13 and work as basically a slave on a neighboring farm for room and board, Mom’s father was very smart, industrious and fortunate.  He had a job throughout the depression. A high paying job, that kept food on the table and even the luxuries others did not have. They were not rich by any imagination, but they were not poor! They lived well.

She met my dad when she was 16. He was working on a farm that bordered her property.  He had worked his way up from poverty to a partner in that farm, by age 22!  They married a year later. She was only 17.  They had three boys. Victor, my oldest brother who is named after my father, Bill, who still lives with mom, and me, the youngest.  Like Mom, my parents made sure we had a blessed childhood.  I have no bad memories, only great ones.  We lived well. 

Mom’s faith in God always been an inspiration to me.  My “finding” God again, after years of denial was helped by her faith. That simple faith I wish everyone could have. I wish I could have.

I love you Mom, may you rest in peace along side Dad until the day you hear the voice of Jesus calling you to your newly gained immortal life!   I miss you already.  You have been there for 65 years of my life

The foolishness of those mask wearers

Bob Barney

I get a laugh out of the people wearing masks, because big brother told them too.  You see them wearing them while driving their cars - alone, you see them walking in the woods, or on a country road- alone, and you see them in their own homes - alone!  America has truly become a dumbed down nation, as the Bible predicted when God said, "My people die because of lack of knowledge.". That's more true than ever ! Today's WND story, yet another example of fools on parade in America.


"Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people"

Bob Barney

Christian-america

John Adams warned that, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … "Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other."  John Adams was not saying an American had to be a Christian, as Patrick Henry did, but he said that Americans MUST BE a MORAL and RELIGIOUS!  

Here is a brief BIO on everyone who signed the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!   eye opening, and The PLAIN TRUTH!

 


Hosea - Prophecies for America and Britain TODAY

image from dailyverse.knowing-jesus.com
Hosea Chapter 4 (understanding the prophecy in modern terminology.)

Although it is not expressly stated in the Book of Hosea, it is apparent from the level of detail and familiarity focused on northern geography, that Hosea conducted his prophetic ministries in the Northern Israel (Samaria) of which he was a native.

In Hosea 1:1, the prophet identified the kings that ruled during his prophetic ministry. The first four—Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah—reigned over the southern kingdom of Judah from 790 BC to 686 BC, while Jeroboam II ruled the northern kingdom of Israel from 782 BC to 753 BC. This indicates that Hosea lived in the middle to late eighth century BC (755–715 BC), making him a contemporary of the prophets Isaiah and Micah. Hosea is often seen as a "prophet of doom", but underneath his message of destruction is a promise of restoration. The Talmud claims that he was the greatest prophet of his generation.  The period of Hosea's ministry extended to some sixty years, and he was the only prophet of Israel of his time who left any written prophecy.

The identity of Israel (Samaria) is almost unknown today, but you can easily prove who the nations of the world descended from today! Read our study showing how England, America and many Western European countries are LOST ISRAEL.  So almost every time in prophecy that we read that something will happen to Israel in the End Days, it will happen to the USA, Canada, Britain and parts of Western Europe. Israel in end time prophecy is not the Jewish nation of Israel today!  The nation we call "Israel" is in fact named JUDAH in the Bible.  Jews do not have the claim to the name Israel!  11 of the 12 tribes of Israel ARE NOT JEWS!   Are you aware that the first time the word "Jew" is used in the Bible, that the "Jews are at war with the House of Israel to this day!"  Jews fighting Israel!  Did you know that?

When we read the Bible, which was written about 2,000-3,000 years ago, we often don't get the "feel of it" and how it relates to what is going on today, especially when reading prophecy about the end times and which nations are going to be involved. We read about Israel, of course, as well as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Ethiopia and a list of unrecognizable nations and names. Yet what about nations like  China, Russia, Germany, Italy, England or the United States? Why aren't they mentioned in our Bible?  How can it be, if the Bible is the word of God, that he didn't know that these modern nations would exist? After all, if God knows the future, didn't God know about the United States or Europe or China? How can we trust prophecy or understand it when most of the time the scenario just doesn't fit what we know about the world today? Is there going to be another Assyrian Empire as the Bible claims? Does Assyria even exist today? Is Greece going to be the most powerful nation under another Alexander the Great as the book of Daniel suggests? It doesn't seem very likely to me and I am sure not to most of you either. Are we indeed living in the end times and how can we know what to look for and what today's news means? Will the world as we know it really ever end, as Jesus foretold?

Believe it or not, the Bible is as current and relevant today as the day when it was first written. The fact is that it is even more relevant today because much of what was predicted by the prophets was meant for today and beyond and not for the time these men were living! The hard-to-pronounce nations mentioned in the pages of prophecy written so ,long ago still exist, and you can prove it to yourself! God has given us tools to understand His predictions for our world and has had uncanny accuracy that nobody could ever duplicate without divine influence. God has rightly predicted:
the fall of Babylon

 The fall of Assyria

 The fall of Alexander

 The fall of Rome 7 times (it has now fallen five or six times depending on what expert you believe!)

 The Pope

 Radiation poisoning

 Chernobyl by name!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Global man-made pollution
 
 the Muslim religion and their fight with Europe known as Crusades and the final yet to come conflict between these two powerful regions

 The rise of England and the USA to be two most powerful nations ever to exist on this planet!

 That England would have a monarchy, and that monarchy would claim to be David's descendants and that they would sit on his literal throne over the same rock that David himself was coronated over.

 That the #13 would be important to the United States of America and that our form of government would be by election and not by a divine monarchy from the line of David.

To understand the Book of Hosea in today's world takes some knowledge of who he was, when he lived and when exactly he is talking about, and believe it or not, most of what he wrote was NOT FOR HID DAY!

The Study of HOSEA:

Hosea 1- 3: Hosea is ordered by God to marry a whore, who will not be faithful to him. To God, praying to false pagan deities is akin to human sexual adultery.  As we are torn apart to find out that our spouse has been unfaithful, God feels the same torment when His people are unfaithful to Him! Adultery symbolises pagan worship in the Bible. Both Israel (America, England and parts of Western Europe) and Judah (modern day Jewish nation) have worshipped pagan deities throughout history and have suffered for it.

Hosea 4: a translation to better understand how to understand Bible prophecy:

Hosea 4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

The Lord Is Angry Against The United States, Great Britain and much of Western Europe

 People of America, listen to the Jesus' message to you. Jesus, the Lord God Almighty has filed a lawsuit against you listing the following charges: “The people in this land are not honest or loyal. They don’t really know God the Father or Me. They are always cursing, lying, killing, stealing, and committing adultery. They murder one person after another. So the country is like someone crying for the dead, and all of its people are weak. Even the animals of the field, the birds of the sky, and the fish in the sea are dying because of the curse upon you.  

 4 “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame to him! Look, priest, I am pointing my finger at you.

5  As a sentence for your crimes, you, the priests and ministers of My people will stumble in broad daylight as well as in the night, and so will your false ‘prophets’ too; and I will destroy the land.

“My people are destroyed because they have no knowledge. You so-called Holy ministers have refused to learn, so I will refuse to let you be priests for Me. You have forgotten the Ten Commandments, so I will forget your children. They became proud. They sinned more and more against me, so I will change their honor to shame.

8 “The priests rejoice in the sins of the people; they lap it up and lick their lips for more!

So the priests are no different from the people. I will punish them for the things they did. I will pay them back for the wrong things they did. 10 They will eat, but they will not be satisfied. They will commit sexual sins, but they will not have babies. This is because they left the Lord and became like prostitutes.

11 “Sexual sins, strong drink, and new wine ruin a person’s ability to think straight.12 My people are asking pieces of wood for advice. They think that idols, pieces of wood, or some horoscope will answer them! They have chased after those false gods like prostitutes and have left their own God. 13 They make sacrifices to other gods and worship money rather than Me. Your daughters will become prostitutes, and your daughters-in-law's whores for free.

14 “I cannot blame your daughters or your daughters-in-law for doing this, because your men go and have sex with the same whores and pay them. This is how foolish people destroy themselves.

The Shameful Sins of America and Great Britain who carry the name of Jacob or Israel

15 “Israel, just because you act like a prostitute doesn’t mean that Jews should feel guilty too. People, Don’t use the Lord’s name to make promises. Don’t say, ‘As the Lord lives …!’ 16 The Lord has given many things to you. He is like a shepherd who takes his sheep to a large field with plenty of grass. But you are stubborn, like a young cow that runs away again and again.

17 “The United States has joined Their politicians and so called holy leaders and rejoice in  sin; they lap it up and lick their lips for more! 18. Therefore, a mighty wind shall sweep them away;  and they shall die in shame because they have forgotten me and worshipped gods of money and greed.

My Mom-Updated.. Happy 91st Birthday

UPDATE: 7/8/20:   Today is my mom's 91st birthday and she is home from the hospital, but she does have inoperable cancer of the stomach area.  Very sad, but she is home and made 91.   God bless her and help her, as she is in your hands now.  Thanks for all the support I have received.

My Mom, Tammy Sr and Me, and my children and grandchildren- taken 2 years ago.

First published 7/3/2020

As far as I can remember my Mom has had a simple faith in God that has meant so much in my life.  So, I thought I would write this about her as she approaches her  91st birthday this July 8.

Several weeks ago, my brother Bill (who still lives with her back in Ct.) called me saying that mom was suffering from constant stomach pain, and he couldn’t get her to eat much.  After complaining of this for several days he took her to the doctor, who hospitalized her.  She is in the hospital now with a tumor on her gall bladder and we do not know at this time if it’s cancer or not; or even if she will live or die.  I ask everyone to pray for her.  However it is this, my tribute to my mom what this article is about.   She was always there for me and for our family and she defended us with everything a mother should against anyone that would harm any of us. She has always been a remarkable, strong willed and an independent woman.  However, what I remember most about Mom is her simple faith in God. Unlike myself, she has always believed, and her faith was genuine and real, never experiencing the doubt and unbelief that I did.

I started out believing in God as a child, but my “scientific” mind and my anti-God education; I came to reject that there was a God.  I always marveled at my mom who had that simple faith--- she just always believed in God.  She went to church on Sundays for a long time but eventually stopped going because she saw the hypocrisy of the church she was going to-- but that did not stop her belief in God! In short she had faith that a church didn’t have, a simple faith.  That faith always amazed me even when I was an atheist, I marveled at that faith, and her willpower and I wished that I could have a faith like that in a God. I’m sorry to say even though I have come to believe in God and believe in God strongly I still do not have the simple faith that my mom has had her whole life. Something I’m ashamed of, and it’s something that I’m struggling for. But she had it, even today.

Actually, mom is less afraid of death or I should say less afraid of her death then I am.  She’s ready to go, even though she knows what that really means.  She knows that she will not go to heaven when she dies to be with my dad. She fully understands the plain words of the Bible, that when she dies she, is going into the grave, to lie in the ground and wait until the resurrection, which only happens after Jesus Christ returns. She’s not fooled like most people, that she’s going to heaven to be with her husband who died some 22 years ago. She knows that she will be buried alongside dad and they will both have to wait until the resurrection. That’s her simple faith that I find amazing and spiritual. In fact Mom, your life has been amazing.

Mom was born in 1929 in the year of the great crash and grew up during the depression. However, unlike my dad, who lived in poverty and was forced to leave school at 13 and work as basically a slave on a neighboring farm for room and board, Mom’s father was very smart, industrious and fortunate.  He had a job throughout the depression. A high paying job, that kept food on the table and even the luxuries others did not have. They were not rich by any imagination, but they were not poor! They lived well.

She met my dad when she was 16. He was working on a farm that bordered her property.  He had worked his way up from poverty to a partner in that farm, by age 22!  They married a year later. She was only 17.  They had three boys. Victor, my oldest brother who is named after my father, Bill, who still lives with mom, and me, the youngest.  Like Mom, my parents made sure we had a blessed childhood.  I have no bad memories, only great ones.  We lived well. 

Mom’s faith in God always been an inspiration to me.  My “finding” God again, after years of denial was helped by her faith. That simple faith I wish everyone could have. I wish I could have.

I love you Mom, may God heal you.

For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will lead many astray

Matthew 24 a series of commentaries....


By Bob Barney-The Plain Truth

Matthew24a    In Matthew 24 Jesus told His disciples of specific warnings pointing the way to His second coming, the end of the age of man, and the establishment of His kingdom on earth. He said to them: “Do you see all these buildings? Truly I say to you, they will be so completely demolished that not one stone will be left on top of another!” As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? What is the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Be careful that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will lead many astray.” (Mathew 24: 3-5 in The Plain Truth Red Letter “Original Order” Bible by Bob Barney.)
 
              When Jesus said this, He was speaking not only as prophet, knowing what the future would be, but GOD in the flesh.  He understood that not only would false messiah's appear on the world stage and false religions, like Islam, He here was speaking of a time when many would come using His name, saying Jesus is the Christ and deceive many.    This is false Christianity, and not false pagan religions that He is speaking of here.   Unfortunately, most Christians mistakenly assume that Jesus was predicting the arrival of impostors, claiming to be Him, as the Antichrist will.   THIS IS NOT the warning here!   He is warning us and His disciples about FALSE CHRISTIANITY masquerading as the real thing!

             History informs us that many did come in His name claiming to represent Him, and making the claim that Jesus was the Christ and that He rose from the dead. These were false Christians, not part of the true church of God that deceived many in that very first century!    Soon after Christ's ascension to heaven and the founding of the church in AD 31, another gospel began to be preached by false Christians, claiming to be from God, but were actually from Satan!   In Galatians 1:6-7, we see they were already preaching a different gospel than Jesus' gospel of the kingdom of God. The apostle Paul also spoke of these false prophets preaching a different gospel in II Corinthians, the 11th chapter.   To the church in the very first century, he wrote: “I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For you happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.
 
            Do you understand what Paul is saying here? Already in his day, a false Christian church had arose, claiming that Jesus was the Messiah PREACHING A FALSE GOSPEL! Jesus, like Paul, was warning that we are to be on the lookout for false Christians preaching a false gospel in Jesus' name! John tells us “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” Jesus Himself makes the same claim that people can worship Christ, LOVE HIM and believe on Him, and yet be of the Devil! It is right here in Matthew 7

Fallen-church-icon             Again from “The Plain Truth Red Letter Bible”:
Matthew 7:21-27: Not everyone who says to me, 'LORD, LORD,' will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will tell Me in that day, 'LORD, LORD, didn't we prophesy by Your Name, by Your Name cast out demons, and by Your Name do many mighty works?' Then I will tell them, 'I never knew you. Depart from Me, you who work iniquity (who practice lawlessness).' Therefore, everyone who hears what I say and obeys it will be like a wise person who built a house on rock. Rain poured, and floods came. Winds blew and beat against that house. But it did not collapse, because its foundation was on rock. Everyone who hears My words, and doesn't do them is like like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell -- and great was its fall.”


            This is a very tough line by Jesus Himself!  Notice that confessing on Jesus, and saying that you 'believe on Him' means NOTHING for your salvation!  Jesus goes on to say that many who do miracles and 'love the Lord' will be sent away from Jesus during the first judgment day! Notice that churches do not teach this verse very often, because Jesus plainly states that one must believe and OBEY!  Obeying means to follow the Law of God, mainly summed up in the Ten Commandments, which includes the obligatory following of the Sabbath Day.

            The true Church of God, the one that Jesus founded upon Himself, follows the Laws of God.... The Ten Commandments, including the Sabbath Day, and rejects Sunday worship, and the false gospel that Jesus came away to take away the Law (lawlessness). He did nothing of the sort!

            Friends, these are quotes from the Bible. Yes, they are in my translated words, but look up the same verses in your Bibles and see if my modern english translation varies much from what all experts agree are the words Jesus and the New Testament writers wrote down in the first century. It is time that you begin to read the words ON THE PAGE and not listen to the words from some theologian or minister – they could be the same ones Jesus was warning you about in Matthew 24!

 

Today starts the 4th 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.


The Plain Truth: White Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter Exposed!

Bob Barney:  The Plain Truth is that these riots are paid for by the Democrat party- the party of racism... The police have a history of brutality against all races, especially white men!  I know, most police are good people, BUT the police in this nation need help. They have MANY, not a few, "Wyatt Earp's" in many local police departments today. If we do not clean up the police departments, it will be the police that will enforce the Deep State takeover of this nation!  Look at this link


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 new 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.  


The United States of Europe will become a super power- the Bible says so!

A Beast is rising in Europe, and if you are a Plain Truth Reader, you know that the Bible promises that the evil coming antichrist will arise out a United States of Europe!  Yes, Europe, under the Holy Roman Church is the end time beast of Revelation, and will become the enemy of the USA.  You need to know just WHO the players are in today's world!  Click Here  and you will be amazed just who the nation's are today, as prophesied is the Bible!  You can not know what is going to happen unless you know who we are, and who "they" are!   Macron's France, by the way is a lost tribe of Israel named Rueben! And they, like in WWII, will be enslaved by the coming antichrist!

Europe must 'become an Empire' to rival China and the US, a French minister said yesterday. 

Economics and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said the EU must project its power around the globe to promote peace and protect the environment.

He told German newspaper Handelsblatt: 'It's about Europe having to become an Empire, as China is. And how the US is. But a peaceful empire that relies on green growth. Neither China nor the US, who are leaving the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, are on this line.'

Economics and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire (right with EU President Jean-Claude Juncker) said the EU must project its power around the globe to promote peace and protect the environment

Asked why he used the controversial word empire, Mr Le Maire clarified: 'Do not get me wrong, I'm talking about a peaceful empire that's a constitutional state. I use the term to raise awareness that tomorrow's world will be shaped by the powerful.

You're not a Liberal- You're a Democrat and you are not Conservative- Just a Republican First

Commentary by Bob Barney

Bob_1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's time we face reality.  In the age of liberalism, populism and conservatism, the sad reality is that those labels don't mean absolutely anything today.  The following examples should prove the point:

METOO:   The so-called METOO movement which really started out as an anti-Trump movement, has now ended up as a Democrat problem!  In one example, Rep Sheila Jackson (D-Texas) and 176 Democrat members of the House have sponsored a bill to reauthorize THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT.... that actually removed any reference to women! Yes you read the right

Another example is Joe Biden, with his molester status. Seems that all women are not to be believed when a democrat is accused.   Even feminist who believe accuser Tara Reade says it's not important! Nancy Pelosi, says she is “satisfied” with Biden’s non-response response. Media whore Stacey Abrams — says that “Biden is telling the truth and this did not happen.” Reade is a liar.

I saw where one feminist journalist wrote that Joe Biden could "boil babies" but she would still vote for him in the election. Other feminist have publicly said that they believe he DID rape Reade but they would still endorse him and support him. "We have to defeat Trump at all costs," they say, "even if we elect a rapist and pedophile." Good government, they say requires them to oppose any investigations into previous sexual harassment or corruption claims against him. It appears politicians and pundits have discovered the glory of the presidential bull. In this case, Biden is much like a papal indulgence that allows writers, journalists, and members of Congress to forgive any sin in a crusade to retake Washington.

During the Middle Ages a corrupt, Pope Urban used "indulgences" that people could buy to forgive sins. Yes, rich people could sin all they wanted, pay the Pope and be forgiven - of anything!   Sounds like a democrat today.

The coming election has become the ultimate crusade for democrats to gain back the power they lost, and they will do it at any cost!  Critics of President Trump seem to be enjoying indulgences in tossing aside all of their moral and ethical considerations, willing to forgive Biden of anything.   

As the title says.... They are not really feminist, or even liberals--- THEY ARE DEMOCRATS FIRST! First before country, family or any belief system....

 

The EVER Trumper's who claim that they are for populism and smaller government:

There is a new movement out there that I call the EVER-TRUMPER. These moronic Trump can do no wrong fanatics out there that every-time a negative story comes out about him, they defend him like he is an infallible God.   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.

When the corona so called crisis first hit and Donald Trump called it a cold, the ever-trumpers agreed. Sean Hannity called it a plot to do what impeachment couldn't - a deep state plot to remove Trump.  When the CDC and liberals attacked Trump for not ordering the shutdown of businesses and the economy, these anti-Trump crusaders were anti-American.... Then Trump started to follow their advice - the advice from the media, deep state and medical  community!   What a turn around. All of a sudden, these ever-Trumpers got on the bandwagon. Calling out those who disagreed with the president.  "He is trying to save 2 million lives," they retorted when asked why a shutdown was needed.  The Deep State was good again (boy that was a short-lived hatred) and we need big government to control our lives, decide what everyone can do.  Big Pharma and the medical community are now the heroes, you know the same people behind 200 million abortions. (The same people you know that if they could would remove Trump from office. 60-70% of this same medical medical community are liberal democrats)

When I wrote articles and Face Book messages condemning the quarantine that democratic-led states where imposing, I was the voice of all Ever-Trumpers who eagerly agreed all of this coronavirus hype was nonsense.  Then Trump changed direction by calling for a complete shutdown, destroying the very economy he himself built!  Two weeks ago, the old Trump emerged for 3 days \, had a downhill and said that America had to reopen and we couldn't listen to the doctors at the cost of killing the economy.  Then, out of the woodwork, the ever-Trumpers started calling the cure "worse than the disease," and the economy had to be saved.

However, after three days, Trump got back on the deep state bandwagon leaving his blind followers to have to change their position again. NO, now the cure is needed, even if we have to forgo the economy, the Bill of Rights, elections, or even our freedom.  Yes, the disease that has killed about .0000000001% of the population has become the greatest disease to ever face mankind!   GOD IS DEAD, or at least the God of the Bible, and our only hope is what Donald Trump decides to do.  I disagree.

Again, these Ever-Trumpers have no belief system at all. They believe in one man- not God, no matter how stupid he acts and things he says.  Last week, when the riots began in DC, the secret service took him to a bunker in the White House.  Trump's ego could not take that he was viewed as a coward... So he says, "I only went there to inspect it."

And you guessed it, Facebook ever-trumpet's lit up with stories that they believed Trump.  

So-Called Conservatives (CINO- like a RINO, but Conservatives in name only)

Some of the biggest liars of what they claim to be their ideology are the conservatives who claim they are for lesser government, anti-abortion, lower taxes, gun rights and a strong military.  Many, but not all of these so-conservatives are NEVER-TRUMPER's..  They make about as much sense as the EVER TRUMPER, which is very little.  George Will for example, the patriarch of the conservative movement, or so he and others say; a staunch never Trumper that thinks Hillary Clinton would have been a better president. So in reality, what does George really stand for? Higher taxes, ABORTION and killing babies at birth, banning all guns, sending all our manufacturing to China, a Supreme Court packed with liberals.  Banning much of the 1st, 2nd, 4, 5, and 10 Amendments, of our Bill of Rights, and getting into wars all over the world.  He is also really for Big Government, and riots in the streets - because all Democrats like riots in the streets, it seems... Hillary's own press secretary just said so!

So you see If Donald Trump had a "D" after his name, those that hate him today, would love him, and those who love him today would mainly hate him.  If Hillary had an "R" after her name, Democrats would compare her to Richard Nixon!

 

Just some thoughts on reality in today's political; world.   God, on the other hand NEVER CHANGES!  God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  One doesn't have to wonder what bGod is going to think on a topic, we know what God thinks about everything -- and it will not change.


How the 1964 Civil Rights Act cost Black America

Forward: Queers think they have a right to demand businesses to bake them cakes, using the civil rights laws of the 60's as a guideline.  Just when did your rights of a business owner not mirror your rights as a citizen.  For example, you can now discriminate who you allow into your own home, or which family members can come to your family picnic, but the second you start a business, you loose these same rights you have for your personal life.  It isn't constitutional, but it is the law today.  We think these laws a good, yet history shows us for every movement, there is a counter result.  I mean nobody could argue that the 1964 rights act was bad for black Americans right?   WRONG!  The law decimated black owned businesses and communities and led to the situational poverty among blacks today.  Don't believe me, here is an article from a black writer from a black magazine called The New African.   You would think some racist white southern bigot wrote this. You may think so, but the writer is absolutely correct in the points and facts presented.....

Leslie Goffe

  image from newafricanmagazine.comAs a result of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the black middle class were able to live wherever they wanted and could afford. Consequently, they fled inner city areas like Chicago’s South Side and Washington DC’s U Street Corridor neighbourhoods where they had been safe from the hostile white world. They were drawn to the white suburbs. 

The black neighbourhoods had established black-owned cinemas, black-run churches and black mutual aid societies, but the black middle class gave up this black independence for the chance to move into America’s lilywhite suburbs. They were eager to live in the integrated America that Dr Martin Luther King Jnr. had spoken so eloquently, and tantalisingly, of in his 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington.

I'm a sinner, You're a sinner, everybody you have ever met is a sinner

image from s17-us2.ixquick.comBY BOB BARNEY

According to the Bible, and to God (who I try not to argue with very much), I am a sinner.  The fact is that you are a sinner, your best friends are sinners, so is Billy Graham and the Pope.  I am, just like every human ever born, except one, a carnal lust filled animal, who like the family dog, am physically attracted to my animalistic urges. I like looking at pretty girls, and I am 62 years old. I probably will continue for a long time.  I understand fully well, that without the help of God Almighty, I am just an animal, in the body of a God-Like human, trying to survive on instincts.  It is the living God, that dwells inside of me that makes me different than an animal. I unlike most on this earth today know this fact, and I am grateful for that knowledge. 

Sin is the breaking of God's Law.  The is the definition given in every Bible ever printed.  It reads in 1 John 3:4 "Everyone who commits sin also breaks the law; sin is the breaking of of the Law."

Sins Forgiven? Yes, BUT There is More to the Story

Ten-commandments-400

By Bob Barney

Although we are sinners, we can come to God, free and easy – but there is something you must do! First we must know just who God is. The real God. We must understand that the word for God in English is incomplete. In Hebrew the word for God is Elohim. In Greek it is Theos. In German, Gud (God).... The ironic thing about this word elohim is that it doesn't only apply to the real God. Pagan gods are also rendered theos or elohim by God in the Bible. The human word (whether in Hebrew, Greek or English) is actually as pagan as the Devil himself, yet God uses these words not only express the GODHEAD (Jesus and the Father), but all phony gods as well. So when you read the word God in the Bible, one has to decide what God is being talked about- demons, angels or the Godhead. The translators made it easy for us by CAPTILAZING the “G” when the term applied to the real God. 

So, according to the Bible the real God (Elohim) is really a Godhead comprising of two beings: Christ and the Father. The word Theos or Elohim is what is called a uni-plural word. This means it is a singular form of the word (not plural) BUT being made up of more than one! Church, school, Barney are uni-plural words. One church has many members. The Barney name is a family name of many people.

I'm sorry to the Trinitarians out there, but the Holy Spirit is not a third God. The Two that make up the Godhead composed of The Holy Spirit. Just as Male and Females (the human form of the Godhead – thus explains how we are made in the image of God) are composed of blood! This is why blood is sacred. It is the human symbol of the Holy Spirit!

The next thing we must understand is who among the Godhead is speaking. Just a quick reading of John chapter 1 clearly shows that the God who speaks, who created everything that exists is none other the Yahweh- the God who BECAME Jesus Christ! Jesus Himself plainly tells the people this in John 8. They ask him who he claimed to be. He said, before Abraham was, I AM! Now turn your Bible to Exodus Chapter 3

and read for yourself the chapter. Moses ask the voice calling to him from the burning bush, “who are you, what is your name.” The answer is shocking when read for the first time. The God who spoke from the bush gave Moses His personal name! Read it for yourself!
