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

By Bob Barney

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

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

Headline:

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

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

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

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

It's all Dump Trump all the time.

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

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

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

Our leftist press could not be happier at that prospect.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Remove criminal undocumented immigrants

The Promise:

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

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

End birthright citizenship

The Promise:

"End birthright citizenship."

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

The Plain Truth about Homosexuality and The Bible

English: The Ten Commandments, illustration fr...English: The Ten Commandments, illustration from a Bible card published by the Providence Lithograph Company (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“Sin is the transgression of the Law.” You can find that and one 1 John 3:4. It is the only definition of what sin is! One sins, only when they break the Law of God, in Hebrew known as the Torah, summed up in the Ten Commandments.

John also tells us that if we confess our sin, God will forgive us.  If we say we have no sin, then there is no forgiveness. 1John:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”

This article is not about homosexual marriage, or about the role of homosexuality in government. This article is about what God has to say about homosexuality, about sin in general, and what is The Plain Truth about the matter. Often, many Christians want to demonize homosexuality - by making it a far worse than any other sin; But biblically that is a false teaching, and it is not accurate at all.

REMEMBER!

By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth

SabbathThere are many phrases in the bible that contain the word “Remember.” To remember something is to imprint an image, phrase, event or memory to our brains. Hopefully we will always remember our loved ones, our favorite vacations, and especially our God! God tells us that we are to remember Them (Father and Son) always, and to remember God's Laws and instructions. God also promises us that They (Father and Son) will remember all the promises made to us! God will remember each one of us... A wonderful thought...

 

REMEMBER – NKJV (New King James Version) (God's words in RED)

God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark.

 and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.

 And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt

Exodus 20:8

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

 And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth

 To such as keep His covenant, And to those who rememberHis commandments to do them.

 remember Your name in the night, O Lord, And I keep Your law.

 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”:

 I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.

 Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,

 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says theLord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

 Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.

 Then he (one of the thieves on the cross) said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”

So we see how important the word remember should be to all of us. Now allow your mind to enter a dream state. Dream of Heaven, the entire Universe and Earth. We know that if we believe what God says, the EARTH is the CENTER of the created physical Universe, as Heaven is the center of all Creation. In Heaven, the CENTER is the Throne of The father God and Jesus Christ. 

On Earth the center of Earth is the ancient land known as Israel, located in Palestine. To God, Israel is the center of this planet, and of all creation, other than Heaven. That's why every direction given in the Bible centers from Israel! People from the North – are peoples North of Palestine. People of the South, are those BELOW, or south of Israel. Western Coastlands, are lands WEST in the western oceans FROM Palestine (England and the Americas).

The center of Israel is Jerusalem! Jerusalem is the eternal city, the only one promised to appear in the world tomorrow.

In the Center of Jerusalem is God's Holy Temple, now destroyed, but a PROMISE to be rebuilt before the return of Christ. Christ will rule from this Temple!

In the center of the Temple is the Holy of Holies, where the Ark of the Covenant was placed. On the top of this Ark was a SEAT. It is the seat the Christ sat on while the Temple stood. Christ's Spiritual Presence emitted from this seat! It will again. 

Inside the Ark, in the Center was the two tablets of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! The center of all creation was the Ten Commandments (you know that awful Law that many try to tell you Christ abolished!). On the Ten Commandments are Ten Laws.

That 4th Commandment Begins with this word:

REMEMBER!

 Yes we are to remember the most spiritual of the Commandments, the Center of the world.

Remember the sabbath Day and Keep it Holy!

 

Are you keeping this day holy?

image from ubcchurch.orgLeviticus 26 

 

literally meaning“and He called” 26

 

Do not make idols or set up carved images, or sacred pillars, or sculptured stones in your land so you may worship them. I am the LORD(Jesus) your God(The Godhead-Jesus and The Father). 


Keep my Sabbaths, and revere my sanctuary; I am the LORD(Jesus). 

Blessing for obedience

3 If you follow my statutes and keep my Commandments and observe them faithfully,


Lev26blessingI will send you the seasonal rains. The land will then yield its crops, and the trees of the field will produce their fruit. 

Your threshing season will overlap with the grape harvest, and your grape harvest will overlap with the season of planting grain. You will eat your fill and live securely in your own land.


I will grant you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep with no cause for fear. I will rid the land of wild animals and keep your enemies out of your land. 

            {What a perfect picture of the USA in the 1850'5-1950's!}

In fact, you will chase down your enemies and slaughter them with your swords. 

                            { Until Korea-Vietnam, we didn't lose a war!}

Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand! All your enemies will fall beneath your sword.

9 I will turn toward you, make you productive, increase your numbers and uphold my covenant with you. 

10 You will have such a surplus of crops that you will need to clear out the old grain to make room for the new harvest! 

{I remember as a child reading the World Book Encyclopedia and looking at the vast stores of grains in warehouses the size of little cities! We were the food basket to the entire world!}

11 I will live among you, and I will not despise you.

{God has been with us! He was welcomed by our fathers before us and it is God, and not our form of government that has made us so rich and the envy of the world!}

12 I will walk among you; I will be your God(Elohim/Theos), and you will be my people. {God has walked with us! He has been here! He can walk with you today! Be His friend, obey Him and he will walk with you too!}

 

13 I am the LORD(Jesus) [of the] God(Godhead), who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high. 

Leviticus-26-punishmentPunishments for Disobedience This has been our fate now for almost 50 years! We have forgotten our God and GOD's LAWS, and we are reaping our reward for it... Read that “reward” below. 

 

14 However, if you do not listen to me or obey all these commands, 

15 and if you break my covenant by rejecting my statutes and treat my regulations with contempt, and refusing to obey my Commandments, 

16 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. 

17 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! 

{Like President Obama and others to come, plus the Liberal Left who hates us! They despise who we really are! Now these, our enemies are ruling over us!}


18 And if, in spite of all this, you still disobey me, I will punish you seven times over for your sins. 

SEVEN TIMES = 7 times a time (a year) or 7 X 360 = 2520 years!

19 I will break the pride you have in your own power by making the skies as unyielding as iron and the earth as hard as bronze.


20 All your work will be for nothing, for your land will yield no crops, and your trees will bear no fruit. 

{Famine coming to the USA!}

21 If even then you remain hostile toward me and refuse to obey me, I will inflict disaster on you seven times over for your sins. 

22 I will send wild animals that will rob you of your children and destroy your livestock. Your numbers will dwindle, and your roads will be deserted.


23 And if, in spite of all this, you refuse my correction and still go against me; 

24 then I{Jesus) myself will be hostile toward you. I will personally strike you with calamity seven times over for your sins. 


25 I will send armies against you to carry out the curse of the covenant you have broken. When you run to your towns for safety, I will send a plague to destroy you there, and you will be handed over to your enemies. 

{The invasion by our enemies in our own soil! Like 9-11}

26 I will destroy your food supply, so that ten women will need only one oven to bake bread for their families. They will ration your food by weight, and though you have food to eat, you will not be satisfied.


27 If in spite of all this you still refuse to listen and still remain hostile toward me, 

28 then I will give full vent to my hostility. I myself will punish you seven times over for your sins. 


29 Then you will eat the flesh of your own sons and daughters. { Cannibalism-even abortion! }

30 I will destroy your pagan shrines and knock down your churches. I will leave your lifeless corpses piled on top of your lifeless idols, and I will despise you. 


31 I will make your cities desolate and destroy your places of pagan worship. I will take no pleasure in your offerings that should be a pleasing aroma to me

32 Yes, I myself [Jesus HIMSELF} will devastate your land, and your enemies who come to occupy it will be appalled at what they see. {Even our enemies will be shocked!}


33 I will scatter you among the nations and bring out my sword against you. Your land will become desolate, and your cities will lie in ruins. 

{Our fate is that we will be overtaken by our aliens living among us and selling us into slavery, winding up in other foreign lands.}

34 Then at last the land will enjoy its neglected Sabbath years as it lies desolate while you are in exile in the land of your enemies. Then the land will finally rest and enjoy the Sabbaths it missed. 


35 Yes, as long as it lies desolate it will have rest, the rest it did not have during your Sabbaths, when you lived there. 

36 As for those of you who are left, I will fill their hearts with anxiety in the lands of their enemies. The sound of a driven leaf will frighten them, so that they will flee as one flees from the sword and fall when no one is pursuing. 

{PANIC ATTACKS.. Mass panic attacks will be caused by TERRORISM! Terrorism = panic!}


37 Though no one is chasing you, you will stumble over each other as though fleeing from a sword. You will have no power to stand up against your enemies. 

38 You will die among the foreign nations and be devoured in the land of your enemies. 


39 Those of you who survive will waste away in your enemies’ lands because of their sins and the sins of their ancestors. 

{We will be captives, probably Europe and the Middle East}

40 But if they confess their sins and the iniquity of their ancestors, in that they committed treachery against me and, moreover, that they continued hostile to me— 


41 so that I, in turn, continued hostile to them and brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised heart is humbled and they make amends for their sins

42 then I will remember my covenant with Jacob and my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. 


43 For the land must be abandoned to enjoy its years of Sabbath rest as it lies deserted. At last the people will pay for their sins, for they have continually hated my laws and despised my decrees.

44 But despite all this, I will not utterly reject or despise them while they are in exile in the land of their enemies. I will not cancel my covenant with them by wiping them out, for I am the LORD(JESUS) their God(Jesus is God). 


45 For their sakes I will remember my ancient covenant with their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of all the nations, that I might be their God(Jesus is God). I am the LORD(JESUS).'

46 These are the decrees, regulations, and instructions that the LORD(JESUS) gave through Moses on Mount Sinai as evidence of the relationship between himself and the Israelites.

US Experiments in Mind Control: False Flag attacks and the CIA

By Bob Barney

image from www.onlinepsychologydegree.info    Hopefully this will scare the hell out of you, but it probably will not because we as a nation have become immune to the evils of the deep state.  How many are aware that our government devised methods to turn people into assassins! And we did this over 60 years ago!   

I guess we remember the funny line from "Naked Gun" that "anyone can be an assassin" explaining how through mind control, people could become hynoqptized into killing people, then forgetting they did it.  It was funny, or is it?

Over the past few weeks we have had at least three mass killings and the Deep State murder of Jeffery Epstein (YES MURDER- only an idiot would believe anything else- and we PREDICTED HIS MURDER!).  I guess most do not understand what they are watching on their television sets.   I will explain.  What we are seeing is DEEP STATE inspired events to take away ALL OF YOUR RIGHTS!   To abolish the Bill of Rights, your right to self protection, and the nations thousands have died to protect!   We are at war.  At war with our own government!  Small business are being attacked by the EPA, the IRS and OSHA.  Your savings are being robbed by government taxes, and little by little, every right that you were given by your creator is being abolished!   You might not be aware, but God predicted this would happen to us and our coming enslavement by foreigners!

The CIA in the 1950's started a new mind control experiment called MK-Ultra.  MK-Ultra’s “mind control” experiments generally centered around behavior modification via electro-shock therapy, hypnosis, polygraphs, radiation, and a variety of drugs, toxins, and chemicals. These experiments relied on a range of test subjects: some who freely volunteered, some who volunteered under coercion, and some who had absolutely no idea they were involved in a sweeping defense research program. From mentally-impaired boys at a state school, to American soldiers, to “sexual psychopaths” at a state hospital, MK-Ultra’s programs often preyed on the most vulnerable members of society. The CIA considered prisoners especially good subjects, as they were willing to give consent in exchange for extra recreation time or commuted sentences.

Genesis 1:1

Bible 1

From the  Plain Truth RED LETTER EDITION of the Bible, where all words of Jesus are in Red in both OLD and New Testaments!
 
Genesis 1 which is translated: "In the beginning of"
 
1 In the beginning God (Elohim/Theos- The family of God) who is Jesus ( אֵת ('eth))* created the heavens and the earth.
 
Elohim: A generic name for God, can be used even for pagan gods. The word is uniplural. This means it is a group word like our word for "America." America is one nation, but name implies more than one individual. The Greek word for the same Hebrew world Elohim is Theos. Theos = Elohim. So the Old Testament in Greek uses the word Theos when speaking of the general word for God or Elohim. Whenever the word "God" is used, we put in ( ) (Elohim/Theos)  or often we use (Elohim-The family of God), because that is really the true meaning of the word.   There are many names for God in the Old Testament, that in English is rendered God, yet in the original comes from a multitude of other names. LORD comes from the Hebrew Yahweh or Jehovah***See note above. The Bible teaches that God is comprised of the Father and The Son (John 1:1; John 10:30; John 17:11; John 17:22; Rom 1:7; 1Cr 1:3; 1Cr 8:6, 2Cr 1:2; Gal 1:1; Eph 1:2; 1Th 3:11; 2Th 1:1; 2Th 1:2; 1Ti 1:2; 1Pe 1:2-3; 2Jo 1:3; Jud 1:1;).  The doctrine of the TRINITY comes from pagan sources and is not taught in scripture.
             
   In the beginning--a period of remote and unknown antiquity, hid in the depths of eternal ages; and so the phrase is used in Proverbs 8:22 Proverbs 8:23  as well as John 1. 

              * Jesus said that He is the Alpha  (Aleph-in Hebrew) and the Omega ( Tav- in Hebrew) the First and the Last, and the Beginning (rosh) and the Ending (sof): 22 (The same number as the Hebrew Alphabet) times the two letters; The Aleph and Tav ARE NOT TRANSLATED! Strong's Number H853 matches the Hebrew אֵת ('eth), which occurs 22 times in 18 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV
 
2 And the earth became a wasteland and void of life; and darkness was upon the face of the deep: and the Spirit of God (Elohim/Theos) hovered over the face of the waters.
 "was" is translated became as all translations do for the same word in Genesis 19:26. Also, we know from Isa 45:18 that God does not create in vain, or in a formless and void context. God creates everything perfectly, hence we know the correct word is became! It should also be noted that this verse does not imply that the earth and universe were formed 6,000 years ago. It says that the earth was REFORMED recently in time (probably about 6,000 years ago). The earth may be millions if not billions of years old. God is Eternal, so there is no reason to suggest that the universe is new.
 
3 And God (Elohim/Theos) said, Let there be light: and there was light.
That "light" is not the sun! It is God appearing! God is light, wherever God is, there is light. (Rev 22:5). Also, unlike every other pagan religion, the one true GOD does not have to manually do something to create. He doesn't have to have sex to reproduce or anything physical. God merely speaks and it happens! Hence, God's word is the manifestation of their power! Side note, Jesus is the WORD of GOD....
 
4 And  Jesus ( אֵת ('eth))*who is from God (Elohim-The family of God) saw the light, that it was good: and God (Elohim-The family of God) divided the light from the darkness.
 
5 And God (Elohim-The family of God) called the light Daytime, and the darkness was called Nighttime. And there was nighttime and then came morning, the end of the first day.
 
6 And God (Elohim-The family of God) said, Let there a be a sky in the middle of the waters, and let the sky divide the waters above the sky from the waters on earth.
 
7 And God (Elohim-The family of God) made the sky and the heavens, and divided the waters which were under the sky on earth from the waters which were above the sky: and it was so.
The water that was above the sky would be the same water to rain down on earth during the flood (Gen 7:11)
 
8 And God (Elohim-The family of God) called the sky Heaven. And there was nighttime and then morning, when the second day ended.
The Bible talks of three heavens: 1) The atmosphere around the earth 2) The universe where the stars are and 3) the place (unseen) where God lives presently.
 
9 And God (Elohim-The family of God) said, Now, let the waters under the heavens on earth be gathered together in one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
 
10 And God (Elohim/Theos) called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called He called 'Seas': and  God (Elohim-The family of God) saw that it was good.
 
11 And God (Elohim-The family of God) said, Let grass grow from the earth, with herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, Every seed will produce seeds after their own kind of plant: and it was so.
"After their kind" kind = species. This is important. This is a scientific fact that also shows the great error of evolution! Each species of living things can only reproduce after their own kind! Also see note for Gen 1:26 concerning man.
 
12 And the earth brought forth grass, vegetation yielding seeds after their kind, and trees with seeds, each according to its own kind: and God (Elohim/Theos) saw that it was good.
 
13 And there there was nighttime and then morning, the end of the third day.
14 And God (Elohim-The family of God) said, Let there be lights in space, also called the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years:
 
15 and let them be for lights in the sky of heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
 
16 And God (Elohim-The family of God) made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the daytime (the sun), and the lesser light to rule the night (the moon). He made the stars also.
Although the sun and moon were created on day four, the statement about the stars do not necessarily imply that the stars were made on day four! It would be like us saying that on the 4th of July 1776, Ben Franklin signed the Declaration of Independent and Franklin also invented bifocals. Although the words may infer Franklin invented the glasses on the 4th of July, he didn't. The words are placed there as added information about Ben! The same goes for the stars. God created the sun and moon on the fourth day, and he also created all the stars too. It doesn't say when!
 
17 And God (Elohim-The family of God) set them in heaven (or the universe) above to give light to the the earth,
 
18 and to rule over the day and the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was all good.
 
19 And there there was nighttime and then morning, and day four ended.
 
20 And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open space of heaven (the air-sky).
 
21 And God created the large sea creatures, every type of creature that swims around in the water and every type of flying bird. God saw that they were good.
 
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.
 
23 And there there was nighttime and then morning, the end of the fifth day.
 
24 And God (Elohim-The family of God) said, Let the earth bring forth living animals after their kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their own kind: and it was so.
"animals" or creatures is the same word that the KJV translates "soul" only when referring to the creation of man. The word should never be translated soul, but creature or animal.
 
25 And God (Elohim-The family of God) made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground after its kind: and God (Elohim/Theos) saw that it was good.
"After their kind" This is important. This is a scientific fact that also shows the great error of evolution! Each species of living things can only reproduce after their own kind! Also see note for Gen 1:26 concerning man.
 
26 And God (Elohim-The family of God)  said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on earth.
"In our image!" God is the English translation of Elohim, meaning more than one God! This is why this verse is translated, "Let us" and not "Let me." The "US" refers to Jesus Christ (the WORD of God) and The FATHER. Even Jewish translation of this verse render it "Let us!" They claim the "Us" are other angels, a claim that cannot stand scrutiny. (Psalm 110:1-2)
 
27 And God (Elohim-The family of God) created man in His own image, in the image of God (Elohim/Theos) He created man; a male and a female.
Unlike the animals who are created in their own image, mankind is created in God's image, after the God-kind. We are made like the animals, composed of the same matter as an animal, but we look and think and reason like God! We are created to become God! (Psa 82:6)
 
28 And God (Elohim-The family of God) blessed them: and God (Elohim/Theos) said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.
The first commandment given to man was to have SEX! Yes, God is the author of SEX and sex is a gift from God. It is when a man and woman come together in sex are they ONE, as Jesus and the Father are one! The sex act is the physical symbol of our oneness with God. This is why God likens worshipping other gods as adultery! When we follow paganism, we are committing adultery against God! Sex is not the original sin, or dirty in any way, when we follow God's command on righteous, moral heavenly sex!
 
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you plants that have grain for seeds and trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be your food.
 
30 and to every animal on earth, and to every bird in heaven, and to every living thing that creeps on the ground, I have given every green herb for food: and it was so.
 
31 And God (Elohim/Theos) saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there there was nighttime and then morning, the sixth day.
The sixth day ended at dawn, however like today, the actual work ended at evening time when we go to sleep. This is probably where the idea that the Sabbath began on Friday evening. It does not, even though for most our work ends then.

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

VegetarianismVegetarianism (Photo credit: Marius!!)

By Bob Barney

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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


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

The Calling

By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth -- 1st Publish in 2014

It's a fine line between the darkness and the dawn
They say in the darkest night, there's a light beyond”

image from dailygrail.com

Tragedies and sorrows abound. The tragedy in El Paso, Dayton, and Newton Connecticut... sorrows in Aurora Colorado and places around the world we have never even heard of. What's it all mean, and how can anyone cope with the pressure of an evil world. One thing I have learned over the years is that people face tragedy differently. Some can't handle their sorrowful times, and just “tune out.” These people will not face reality no matter what the consequences. Others, jump into the face of tragedy and fight with everything they have to stay sane. Many turn to God, and others to “religion.” Often some go into a morbid period of denial. I can very well understand family members of the slaughtered in these senseless shootings fitting into one of the categories above. My hope is that they turn to God for help, but many may not. It is sad, but the world we live in is not God's world. The apostle Paul said that this world is ruled by the Devil and his demons masquerading as false ministers of Christ who pray on those in distress and lead many to despair. He says in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that, “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”

Some have such a difficult time grasping the practical this concept- that this is not God's world, perhaps because we think of God as Creator and marvel at the staggering beauty of what God has made. In that sense it is His world. But the society is not. In 1 John 2:16, John writes, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the.” William Barclay in his commentary on this verse writes, "To John the world was nothing other than pagan society with its false values and its false gods" (p. 56).

Oh God Where were you when a Human Slaughtered 20 people today in El Paso?

By Bob Barney

Oh God!I have run the Garner Ted Article article (below) before, and do so after many tragedies, like the one today in El Paso. Many often wonder how these things could happen in a modern world. People ask, “how could a loving God allow such tragedies?” People blame God, guns, conservatives, the media, and everybody else – other than themselves. Where is God when tragedies like these occur? Where is God when a million abortions a year are slaughtering the innocence in the womb? The Plain Truth is that God is where THEY (YES 'THEY' – as GOD is the English word that means Jesus and the Father) have been for most of the last 6,000 years. God is in heaven, allowing us to run our own lives, follow our own ways, worship our own false gods and follow pagan holidays that God has nothing to do with. Most people do not want God in their lives. It's a hard simple fact. Most do not want to follow the Law of God, when it does not suit their needs. We want to be free to do what we want to do, since the time we first waked up until the time we draw our last breath of life. We want a God of convenience, and not a God who orders us to obey physical and spiritual laws. We want to follow Christmas, not because it is found in the Bible, but because it makes US feel good. We really don't care what God thinks about the holiday – we really don't care, because if we did, very little research would make us draw a conclusion on our lives, that we do not want to face.

We are not to worship sinful behavior and make excuses. Because we are doing this, more tragedies will occur!  God is alive. God is real and punishment is coming!

We are also in a form a denial. We deny God and God's way. We deny that such tragedies will actually happen to us. Jesus was asked this question 2,000 years ago. It is in Luke chapter 13! 1-5 “Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.  Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way?  I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem?  I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

Repent of what? SIN! And what is the Bible definition of sin?

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.

Contrary to the Media, THIS IS NOT the most Vulgar Presidential Campaign NOT EVEN CLOSE!

When it comes to sleaze, modern presidential elections don’t measure up

By Bob Barney

image from image.slidesharecdn.comThe mass hysteria that the media uses to gin up the masses is at it again.  They portray Donald Trump as running the nastiest campaign ever. Back in 2012, Bernie Goldberg, under the headline “Obama’s Campaign One Of The Dirtiest Ever”, argued such a case.  He is doing it again now with Donald Trump.  The Plain Truth is the media are a part of the "establishment" and all of them have the same agenda as Hillary, The Republican Bigwigs and Wall Street... That is that they love the status quo, and will ruin (maybe kill) anyone that will try to break their monopoly down....

Elections of the past were far nastier and often much more obscene than anything going on today. Trump for example, probably couldn't win against Thomas Jefferson. In his bitter campaign against former friend John Adams, Jefferson said, "Adams was a "hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman." Adams' Federalists carried things even further, asking voters, "Are you prepared to see your dwellings in flames... female chastity violated... children writhing on the pike? GREAT GOD OF COMPASSION AND JUSTICE, SHIELD MY COUNTRY FROM DESTRUCTION."

When Andrew Jackson ran against incumbant John Quincy Adams in 1828, it was not pretty. Adams' previous term had not been a very successful one, but he was prepared to sling a little mud anyway. He and his handlers said Jackson had the personality of a dictator, was too uneducated to be president (they claimed he spelled Europe 'Urope'), and hurled all sorts of horrible insults at his wife, Rachel. Rachel had been in an abusive marriage with a man who finally divorced her, but divorce was still quite the scandal at the time. The Federalists called her a "dirty black wench", a "convicted adulteress" and said she was prone to "open and notorious lewdness". On their end, Jackson's people said that Adams had sold his wife's maid as a concubine to the czar of Russia. Jackson won pretty handily.

Grover Cleveland was the Bill Clinton of his time? During his campaign, stories of his lecherousness were plentiful. One was verified, though - Cleveland, while still a bachelor, had fathered a child with a widow named Maria Halpin. He fully supported the child. So really, by today's standards, it probably wouldn't be that much of a scandal. No marriages ruined, no paternity tests, no child support issues. Nevertheless, the Republican party, who supported candidate James Blaine, took this and ran with it. They made up the chant, "Ma! Ma! Where's my pa?" and used it to taunt Cleveland.

In 1928, President Hoover claimed his opponent, Al Smith, a Catholic, had commissioned a secret tunnel 3,500 miles long, from the Holland Tunnel to the Vatican in Rome, and that the Pope would have say in all presidential matters should Smith be elected. It probably didn't help matters that Babe Ruth was a staunch Smith supporter. You think it would work in his favor, but the Babe would show up at events wearing only his undershirt with a mug of beer in one hand. If people opposed his viewpoint, Ruth would simply say, "The hell with you," and be done with them.

Why Is The Middle East Always Going To Be In YOUR Future

First Published Dec 14 2008

Editor's note: This article was the very first one ever published on The Plain Truth back on December 14th 2007!

By Bob Barney
Armageddon
We have war in Afghanistan, war in Iraq, war is maybe coming to Iran, Israel and Syria. It has been this way since before you were even born. Why? After all, we had war in Europe in 1914 and 1940, but not today. War in Japan in the forties, but not in the past fifty years, so why has every decade seen a problem in the Mid-East? Is it Oil? Is it another reason.

In the late 1940's, the USA was the world's largest oil producer. We did not need oil from the middle east, yet war erupted between the newly formed Israel and its Arab allies. The same thing happened again in the fifties, and the sixties and we still really didn't need the Arab's oil. By 1973 we did need their oil and thus today, everyone without a view on history mistakenly assumes that war in the middle east is about oil. IT IS NOT!

This war has nothing to do with oil, or George Bush or even The United States per say; it has everything to do with religion and about God and God's role in world events. This article can be read anytime in the future and there will still be strife in the middle east. The strife ends, according to the Bible ONLY after Christ returns and not a day before. We realize that we claim to be a news site, and we are, but if there is a God, and it is the God of the Bible and if Jesus Christ is that God of the Bible, then what he has to say is news, is it not?

Voting for a Republican or a Democrat or a even Libertarian will not change a thing concerning the middle east. Getting off of oil will not change the tension between Arab nations and America or Israel. It is time that the "average Joe or Jane" understands what  is going to happen in their lifetime. The staff of The Plain Truth realize that it is hard to believe, but one can understand in broad terms what is going to happen and what is not going to happen in the future. Hopefully by reading this, you have decided to at least be informed and make intellectual choices for once. You will not get propaganda here. In fact, we will teach you how to recognize propaganda! It is easy to spot.

Good luck, be a little patient, and you will enjoy our one-of-a-kind stories and articles. You will learn things that you never knew and we encourage you to look up everything that we write to prove to yourself just what is reality, and what is not. We welcome intellectual feedback, honest opinions and we will not tolerate proganda or distasteful posts. Thanks.

 


The Sabbath Day, like every day, begins at SUNRISE not Sunset!

By Bob Barney

1

As in the photo above, The Sabbath Day begins at the break of the sun, NOT at its setting on Friday night.

Christ warned us to be aware of false religion, customs and laws. These warnings have basically fell on deaf years but the most important "sign" that we can look for, as to the coming of Jesus again back to this world is the spread of false religion and religious practices that are contrary to God. Over the years, God's Law (THE TEN COMMANDMENTS) has been replaced by man's law. Our theologians call it "saved by grace" when truly nothing of the sort is biblically true.

In Jesus' time, the Jewish nation, after years of captivity, began to adopt Babylonian ways. They took on the Babylonian calendar and "lost" God's true perfect one, and at the same time began the truly pagan observance of "evening days."  This simply means that, like the Babylonians, they began to start their day at sunset rather than sunrise. Like everything else, the theologians of the day twisted a few scriptures which may imply evening days and ignored hundreds of scriptures that proved that God's day starts in the morning. Most Sabbath keeping churches to this day follow this pagan start of the day and continue the practice of those lawless religious leaders that killed Christ! The same ones he declared at his arrest were those who worshipped the DARKNESS, when evil reigns! Yes, the nighttime is darkness, and God IS NEVER in darkness. We read in Revelation that when Christ returns to Jerusalem, that where He is will always be in light! There will be no nighttime in the Holy City! Yes, it's in the same Bible that we all read. Revelation 21:23 "And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof."

In the very first chapter of the Bible we read "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." 
Let's read on! "And the evening and the morning were the first day." Do you get that? After daytime of about twelve hours, evening time came, still part of day one, then  came the next day IN THE MORNING!.

When did this happen, in the evening time? Is there light at night? Read on..."And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. " So called the light DAY! So when GOD said "Let there be light" it became day! It was dawn!  It should be noted here that the day is never called darkness by God, only by pagan man!  God is light, there is no darkness in Him, the darkness of the 24 hour day represents EVIL- Satan's Time.  Read Luke 22:52   "Then Jesus told the high priests, the Temple police, and the elders, who had come for him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs as if I were a bandit? 53 While I was with you day after day in the Temple, you didn’t lay a hand on me. But this is your hour, when darkness reigns!”  Darkness represents evil!

Let's examine the first week:

Darkness over the earth........... This may have been millions of years. There was an earth BEFORE our present day earth that was ruled by Lucifer (under God) and then destroyed by God when Lucifer became Satan. Look at any good Bible commentary and you will see that in Gen 1;2 "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep."  That the word "was" (formless and void) can be translated BECAME! This is important. There is a big difference between was and became! Why does the bible commentators put this in? The reason is that they understand the significance of Jeremiah 45:18. Notice Isaiah 45:18. "Thus saith the Eternal that created the heavens, God himself that formed the earth and made it, He hath established it, He created it not in vain." "In vain" is an incorrect translation. In your Bible, if you have the marginal references, you will find in the margin the proper translation "waste."The original Hebrew word there is TOHU. This Hebrew word is the identical word used in Gen. 1:2, meaning confusion, or emptiness. or waste - a result of disorder, a result of violation of law. In Isaiah 45:18 we have the plain statement that God created the earth not "toho," that is, not in confusion, not in disorder. But in Genesis 1:2, the earth was, or the earth BECAME - as it ought to he translated - chaotic and in confusion.

The next issue. How long did the rain fall during Noah's flood?
How long did Moses stay on Mt Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments?


How long was Jonah in the belly of the fish, or Jesus in the tomb?

Answers:
40 days and nights
40 days and nights
3 days and 3 nights, and 3 days and 3 nights.

Question for you Sabbath Keeping Churches...

So the question is why wasn't these time above rendered as 40 nights and days or 3 nights and days? Jesus was truly in the ground for 3 nights and days, but he used the term DAY and NIGHT! Think about that....

In Leviticus 22:29-30: "When you sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Lord ... it shall be eaten on the same day, you shall leave none of it until morning." The insistence of the eating of the sacrifice "on the same day" before the arrival of the "morning," implies that the next morning marked the beginning of the next day. This suggests that the day began in the morning, because, as Roland de Vaux points out, "had the day begun in the evening the wording would have ordered the meat to be eaten before the evening."

The Law says:"But if the sacrifice of his offering is a votive offering or a freewill offering it shall be eaten on the day he offers sacrifice, and on the morrow what remains of it shall be eaten" (Lev 7:16). In this case the flesh of the sacrifice could be eaten both on the day of the sacrifice and "on the morrow." By virtue of the parallelism with the preceding law, the "morrow" must begin in the morning.

Quote below From: THE RECKONING OF THE DAY IN BIBLE TIMES

Samuele Bacchiocchi, Ph. D., Andrews University

"A second type of evidence supporting the sunrise reckoning seems implied also in the Passover legislation of Exodus 12. The law prescribes that the Paschal lamb must be slaughtered on the "fourteenth day of this month ... in the evening" (v. 6) and must be eaten "that night" (v. 8) with "unleavened bread and bitter herbs" (v. 8), leaving none of it "until the morning" (v. 10). Later in the same chapter the night during which the Passover lamb was eaten with unleavened bread is explicitly designated as "the fourteenth day of the month" (v. 18).

"What this means is that in Exodus 12 both the slaying of the Passover lamb, which took place "between the two evenings" (Ex 12:6— that is to say, as Josephus explains, between three and five o'clock in the afternoon),18 and the eating of the lamb with unleavened bread, which took place on the following night, are placed on the same fourteenth day of the month.

"This time reference cannot be harmonized with the sunset reckoning, according to which the night following the sacrifice of the Passover was not the 14th but the 15th day of Nisan. In fact, in several passages which reflect the sunset reckoning, the beginning of the feast of unleavened bread is explicitly placed "on the fifteenth day" (Lev 23:5; Num 28:16).

"According to the sunrise reckoning, however, both the slaying of the lamb and the eating of it with unleavened bread would take place on the 14th day, because the night following the slaying of the lamb would still be the 14th day until sunrise. This method, then, seems to be implied in Exodus 12, because, speaking of "the fourteenth day of the month" it explicitly says: "And you shall observe the feast of unleavened bread, for on this very day I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt" (v.17; cf. vv. 18, 42, 51).

"Jacob Z. Lauterbach rightly observes that "if they came out at night, that is the night following the fourteenth day, and it is said on the very same day, that is on the fourteenth day, they were brought out, it clearly indicates that the night following the fourteenth day is still part of that day."19

"The foregoing considerations suggest that in Exodus 12 the sunrise reckoning is used, since the events of the night following the slaying of the Passover Lamb, namely, the eating of the lamb with unleavened bread and the departure from Egypt, are both placed on the same 14th day. Elsewhere these events are explicitly placed "on the fifteenth day of the first month" (Num 33:3; cf. 28:17; Lev 23:5), thus indicating the use of the sunset reckoning.

"The sunrise reckoning of the Passover found in Exodus 12 seems reflected also in Mark 14:12 (cf. Matt 26:16) where the slaying of the Passover lamb and the feast of Unleavened Bread are both placed on the same day: "On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrificed the Passover lamb" (v. 12). This statement suggests a sunrise reckoning, according to which, as Jack Finegan explains, "the day when the Passover lamb was slain and the day when the unleavened bread was eaten were indeed the same day, as Mark 14:12 states."20"


The Bible says the day starts in the morning!

Each day, at dawn, the world experiences the same beginning as it did on day six of creation. Dawn breaks, the birds sing and the day progresses until evening, when most work for the day is accomplished. Then evening comes, and nighttime, followed at sunrise by a new day. Isn't that how your biological clock works? Does your body recognize midnight as a new day, or 6 PM? NO! You wake up refreshed for a new day in the morning!

In Matt. 26, We see proof that the Day of Passover starts BEFORE evening comes but is observed at Evening. Matt. 26:17 Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? (Notice it was already Passover Day 14th) Before the Last Supper!!!)

:18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.
:19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
:20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

The day symbolizes YOUR LIFE!

At sunrise, the day begins, which symbolizes your birth. As morning progresses, the earth warms and gets ready for the sun to work its way across the sky. We say, "the day is young." In the morning, we look at the day ahead as a long time, just as we look at our life when we are teenagers or younger. As we age, the fear of death begins to creep in, as in the afternoon, the hint of nighttime fills the air. The birds start gathering for night, the day is now at its warmest and things begin to slow down, just as our bodies do. The twilight of our lives, represent the twilight of the day. At sunset, the day is old, and so are we in our mortal physical life. Evening comes and the day dies... In our evening we die too.  We sleep that night until DAWN, just as when we die, we sleep in our graves until the LIGHT OF GOD awakes us from our death. For us a new day- our first day of immortal life! 

Each 24 hour day, God reenacts the same symbolic signs of our entire life to remind us not to fear the BIG SLEEP but to understand that when we awake, our immortal new life begins!

As John says, "Come Jesus..."


Sunday vs The Sabbath in the New Testament

Believe it or not, there is not one instance in the New Testament where Jesus said: “Thou shall go to church on Sunday!”

By Bob Barney -The Plain Truth

I know this may come toSabbath-article a surprise to many, but Christ observed the Saturday Sabbath, never observed Sunday worship, and even claimed to be the LORD (He is the Old Testament LORD Yahweh) of the Sabbath! It may surprise others when they read for themselves that the Sabbath is for God's people, even until the time of the end! Read it for yourselves in Matthew 24. Jesus is giving the signs of His return, and notice these words: “Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath...” (Mathew 24:20) What is this? We are to pray that we don't have to flee on the Sabbath day? I thought the Sabbath was for Jews! And by the way, since the Law forbid work on the Sabbath, Christ is implying here that we have to pray that it doesn't happen on a Sabbath Day because we are not to flee (work) on that day! Something to consider.....

The following are the only passages I find concerning Sunday in the New Testament:

1) Matthew 28: 1: "In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week." Here two different days are mentioned. One is "the Sabbath," and the other is "the first day of the week," or Sunday, which followed the Sabbath. Note here that Jesus was already GONE before the Sabbath started... And unlike what most Sabbatarians believe, the Sabbath did not start until dawn! (Not in the evening) See my article on when God's days begin.

2) Mark 16:1.2: "When the Sabbath was past ... very early in the morning the first day of the week." More proof that the Sunday started in the morning with the sunlight.

Art123) Mark 16:9: "Jesus was risen early the first day of the week." Sunday is simply called "the first day of the week." The "week" began in Genesis. God made the world in six days, then He "rested on the seventh day ... blessed the seventh day and sanctified it." Genesis 2:2, 3. God ordained "the seventh day" as His Holy Day, not "the first day of the week. Also note that God did not say He made the Sabbath for the Jews.. He made it for all mankind! Also, note here that some argue that Jesus rose on Sunday because of this statement. However the translation is easily also rendered (as some do) “Early on the first day of the week, after He arose, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had driven out seven demons.” Read John 20:1 for absolute proof of this!

4) Luke 24: 1: The women went to the tomb on "the first day of the week" after "they rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment." Luke 23:56. This verse is enlightening. These were Christian women who loved Jesus. They kept the Sabbath afterthe cross. Luke was a Gentile who wrote this about 28 years after the resurrection. Again, as Luke states, the Sabbath was still there, and these Christian women were keeping it "according to the commandment" found in Exodus 20:8-11. These verses prove that the Sabbath continues after the cross, and that the Sabbath is not Sunday.

5) John 20:1: Mary came to the tomb on "the first day of the week."

6) John 20:19: On the first day of the week" (late Sunday afternoon), the disciples "were assembled" behind shut doors. Why? "For fear of the Jews." This was not a worship service.

7) 1 Corinthians 16:2: "Concerning the collection for the saints" (vs. 1). The context and other Scriptures reveal that Paul was raising a "collection" for needy believers in "Jerusalem" (vs. 3) during a time of famine. See Acts 11:27-30; Romans 15:25, 26. Notice carefully: On "the first day of the week" (Sunday), "let every one" "lay by him at home" "in storage", a certain amount. The words, "by him in storage," reveal that this was to be done by the believers intheir homes. Paul said nothing here about a church service here.

  1. Acts 20:6-13: This passage is often misused to support Sunday observance, but it doesn’t. This was Paul's last meeting with a small group of believers in "Troas" (verse 6). The meeting took place at night (20:7, 8) on the "first day of the week." They met on Sunday night. Big deal, most Christians today meet during the week. There are many Wednesday night services today. Does this imply that they recognize Wednesday as a replacement for Sunday? Absolutely not! One can meet any day, in fact should meet everyday to study Christ's words!

One final proof of the Sabbath: Let's look thru the New Testament to find WHICH DAY Paul kept, and taught Gentile converts to keep. Notice which dayPaul and Barnabus used for preaching to Gentiles: It's in ACTS:

Acts 13: 13 From Paphos, Paul and his companions sailed to Perga in Pamphylia, where John left them to return to Jerusalem. 14 From Perga they went on to Pisidian Antioch. On the Sabbath they entered the synagogue and sat down. 15 After the reading from the Law and the Prophets, the leaders of the synagogue sent word to them, saying, “Brothers, if you have a word of exhortation for the people, please speak.” Then in verse42-44 “As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue, the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath. 43 When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.

44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord.

Get that? When Paul stopped preaching on that Sabbath, Gentiles asked him to continue to preach TO THEM! What did Paul say, “well tomorrow is Sunday, we can meet in church to continue.” No- he had them wait UNTIL THE NEXT Sabbath! Try as you might, The Sabbath is for Christians. It was not changed by Christ, or the early church to Sunday; rather it was changed by the Pope some 300 years later!

Here is a brief outline what CHURCHES BELIEVE – but never tell you:

"It must be confessed that there is no law in the New Testament concerning the first day." Buck's Theological Dictionary.
"The current notion that Christ and His apo tles authoritatively substituted the first day for the seventh, is absolutely without authority in the New Testament." Dr. Lyman Abbott, Christian Union, Jan. 19, 1882.

            "They [the Catholics] allege the Sabbath changed into Sunday, the Lord's day, contrary to the decalogue, as it appears, neither is there any example more boasted of than the changing of the Sabbath day. Great, they say, is the power and             authority of the church, since it dispensed with one of the Ten Commandments." Authored by Philipp Melanchthon with approval byMartin Luther, Augsburg Confession of Faith, Art. 28, Par. 9.

                Moody Bible Institute: "The Sabbath was binding in Eden, and it has been in force ever since. The fourth commandment begins with the word 'remember,' showing that the Sabbath already existed when God wrote the law on the tables of         stone at Sinai. How can men claim that this one commandment has been done away when they will admit that the other nine are still binding?" Dwight L. Moody, Weighed and Wanting, p. 47

        "When Christ was on earth He did nothing to set it [the Sabbath] aside; He freed it from the traces under which the scribes and Pharisees had put it, and gave it its true place. 'The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.' It is         just as practicable and as necessary for men today as it ever was - in fact, more than ever, because we live in such an intense age." ibid., p. 46.

        "And where are we told in the Scriptures that we are to keep the first day at all? We are commanded to keep the seventh; but we are commanded to keep the first." Church of England Isaac Williams, "Plain     Sermons on the                Catechism," pp. 334, 336.

        "There was and is a commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was not Sunday... It will be said, however, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh         to the first day of the week... Where can the record of such a transaction be found? Not in the New Testament - absolutely not. There is no scriptural evidence of the change of the Sabbath institution from the         seventh to the first day of the week...’To me it seems unaccountable that Jesus, during three years intercourse with His disciples, often conversing with them upon the Sabbath question, never alluded to any         transference of the day; also, that during forty days of His resurrection life, no such thing was intimated...’Of course, I quite well know that Sunday did come into use in early Christian history as a religious day, as         we learn from the Christian Fathers and other sources. But what a pity that it comes branded with the mark of paganism, and christened with the name of the sun god, when adopted and sanctioned by papal         apostasy, and bequeathed as a sacred legacy to Protestantism." Dr. Edward T. Hiscox, author of the Baptist Manual, in a paper read before a New York minister’s conference held Nov.13, 1893  

 

It's about time we start obeying the words printed very clearly in our Bibles and STOP listening to the doctrines of man, tradition and the Devil!

The real Mt. Sinai is in Saudi Arabia! - Update on 9 year old Plain Truth Story

UPDATE: The Real Mt Sinai a'JEWISH PLOT'??????

short film featuring evidence that the biblical Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia has surpassed 1.3 million views, and among the viewers are members of radical Islamic groups that believe the movie is part of a sinister American and Jewish plot to take over the area.

As WND reported in December, the film produced by national security analyst Ryan Mauro takes viewers into a highly restricted zone in the Islamic kingdom with an abundance of features that fit the biblical description of the place where the Ten Commandments were given after the Israelites fled captivity in Egypt.

In a newly released video blog, Mauro says there have been two common responses to “Finding the Mountain of Moses: The Real Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia” among propaganda outlets linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Iranian regime, Houthi rebels and others.

Some say the film is true, but it’s part of a Jewish conspiracy with the United States to seize Mount Sinai and conquer Saudi Arabia.

The following story was originally published: 4/4/2010

This is not news to us, but may be to most out there. The Bible clearly states that Sinai was in Midian (Arabia) and Paul says that Mt Sinai is in Arabia.  Most of the so-called Biblical sites recognized today are lies: Editor

 

Behind the protection of Saudi Arabia's military in the Islamic nation's remote desert sands, evidence about one of the Bible's mysteries lay hidden, until two explorers decided to investigate it themselves, and the results of that adventure, "The Search for the Real Mt. Sinai," a DVD from Exploration Films, is the top seller at the WND Superstore this week.

The story of the adventurers' pursuit of information about the location of the biblical events that took place at Mt. Sinai isn't for the faint of heart: Forbidden military installations, night vision goggles to see without being seen, the heat of the desert and the threat of the kingdom's Islamic law all play a role in this documentation of the real Mt. Sinai, the holy mountain on which Moses was given the Ten Commandments.

This program tells the amazing story of their travels in pursuit of evidence that confirms the Bible as historically accurate.   MORE PLUS VIDEO>>>>>>>>>>>>


The Plain Truth about UFO's

A Former Post, but still worth the re-post!  UFO's are Real- Just not what you think!

By Bob Barney:

image from www.ufobc.caUFO's are real, but they are not little green men from Mars or other planets in some solar systems.  Most UFO's (an the term means UNIDENTIFIED flying objects) have been and still are of this world. Weather phenomena, secret military aircraft and even hoaxes make up the first type of UFO sightings.  There is a second type of UFO that we will IDENTIFY!  If you believe in God, and the God who inspired the Bible, then in the pages of that Bible is the plain explanation of what these types of UFO's are... They are ANGELS!  Don't believe me, read the Bible:

The Plain Truth's Red Letter Edition Bible (my notes in blue)

1 On June 24th(5th day of 4thmonth) of my 13th year, while I was with the Judean exiles beside the Kebar River in Babylon, the heavens were opened to me, and I saw visions of God(Elohim-The Godhead).

                13 is the number of Joseph's youngest son—The USA 2 This happened during the fifth year of King Jehoiachin's captivity.

3 The LORD(Jesus) spoke his word to me (the priest Ezekiel), son of Buzi, in Babylon by the Chebar River. The power of the LORD(Jesus) came over me(Ezekiel).


SEEING GOD as a TORNADO!

4 As I looked, I saw a tornado coming from the north. There was an immense cloud with flashing lightning surrounded by a bright light. The middle of the lightning looked like glowing metal.

5 In the center of the cloud I saw what looked like four living beings. They were shaped like humans,

6 but each of them had four faces and four wings.

Not only were there four distinct living creatures, but each of the four had four faces, making sixteen in all. The four living creatures of the cherubim answer by contrast to the four world monarchies represented by four beasts, Assyria, Persia, Greece, and Rome ( Daniel 7:1-28 ). The Fathers identified them with the four Gospels: Matthew the lion, Mark the ox, Luke the man, John the eagle. Two cherubim only stood over the ark in the temple; two more are now added, to imply that, while the law is retained as the basis, a new form is needed to be added to impart new life to it. The number four may have respect to the four quarters of the world, to imply that God's angels execute His commands everywhere. Each head in front had the face of a man as the primary and prominent one: on the right the face of a lion, on the left the face of an ox, above from behind the face of an eagle. The Mosaic cherubim were similar, only that the human faces were put looking towards each other, and towards the mercy seat between, being formed out of the same mass of pure gold as the latter ( Exodus 25:19 Exodus 25:20 ). In Isaiah 6:2 two wings are added to cover their countenances; because there they stand by the throne, here under the throne; there God deigns to consult them, and His condescension calls forth their humility, so that they veil their faces before Him; here they execute His commands. The face expresses their intelligence; the wings, their rapidity in fulfilling God's will. The Shekinah or flame, that signified God's presence, and the written name, JEHOVAH, occupied the intervening space between the cherubim Genesis 4:14 Genesis 4:16 , 3:24 ("placed"; properly, "to place in a tabernacle"), imply that the cherubim were appointed at the fall as symbols of God's presence in a consecrated place, and that man was to worship there. In the patriarchal dispensation when the flood had caused the removal of the cherubim from Eden, seraphim or teraphim (Chaldean dialect) were made as models of them for domestic use ( Genesis 31:19 , Margin; Genesis 31:30 ). The silence of the twenty-fifth and twenty-sixth chapters of Exodus to their configuration, whereas everything else is minutely described, is because their form was so well-known already to Bezaleel and all Israel by tradition as to need no detailed description. Hence Ezekiel ( Ezekiel 10:20 ) at once knows them, for he had seen them repeatedly in the carved work of the outer sanctuary of Solomon's temple ( 1 Kings 6:23-29 ). He therefore consoles the exiles with the hope of having the same cherubim in the renovated temple which should be reared; and he assures them that the same God who dwelt between the cherubim of the temple would be still with His people by the Chebar. But they were not in Zerubbabel's temple; therefore Ezekiel's foretold temple, if literal, is yet future. The ox is selected as chief of the tame animals, the lion among the wild, the eagle among birds, and man the head of all, in his ideal, realized by the Lord Jesus, combining all the excellencies of the animal kingdom. The cherubim probably represent the ruling powers by which God acts in the natural and moral world. Hence they sometimes answer to the ministering angels; elsewhere, to the redeemed saints (the elect Church) through whom, as by the angels, God shall hereafter rule the world and proclaim the manifold wisdom of God ( Matthew 19:28 , 1 Corinthians 6:2 , Ephesians 3:10 , Revelation 3:21 , 4:6-8 ). The "lions" and "oxen," amidst "palms" and "open flowers" carved in the temple, were the four-faced cherubim which, being traced on a flat surface, presented only one aspect of the four. The human-headed winged bulls and eagle- headed gods found in Nineveh, sculptured amidst palms and tulip-shaped flowers, were borrowed by corrupted tradition from the cherubim placed in Eden near its fruits and flowers. So the Aaronic calf ( Exodus 32:4 Exodus 32:5 ) and Jeroboam's calves at Dan and Beth-el, a schismatic imitation of the sacred symbols in the temple at Jerusalem. So the ox figures of Apis on the sacred arks of Egypt.

7 Their legs were straight, their feet were like those of calves, and they shone like polished bronze.

8 They had human hands under their wings on each of their four sides. All four of them had faces and wings.

9 Their wings touched each other. The beings went straight ahead, and they did not turn as they moved.

10 Their faces looked like this: From the front, each being had the face of a human. From the right, each one had the face of a lion. From the left, each one had the face of a bull. And from the back, each one had the face of an eagle.

11 Each had two pairs of outstretched wings – one pair stretched out to touch the wings of the living beings on either side of it, and the other pair covered its body.

12 They went in whatever direction the Spirit(ruwach) chose, and they moved straight forward in all directions without having to turn around.

13 The living beings looked like burning coals and torches. Fire moved back and forth between them. The fire was bright, and lightning came out of the fire.

14 The living beings ran back and forth like lightning.

15 As I looked at them, I saw {what appeared to be a gyro} [wheel] on the ground beside each of them.

 

GOD AS A UFO!

16 The wheels sparkled as if made of beryl. All four wheels looked the same; each wheel had a second wheel turning crosswise within it, {like a gyroscope}.

17 Whenever they moved, they moved in any of the four directions without turning as they moved.

18 The rims of the wheels were large and frightening. They were covered with eyes.

19 When the four living beings moved, the {gyros}[wheels] moved with them. When the living beings rose from the earth, the wheels rose.

20 Wherever their Spirit(ruwach) wanted to go, the beings went. The wheels rose with them, because the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.

21 So whenever the beings moved, the {gyros} moved. Whenever the beings stood still, the {gyros} stood still. And whenever the beings rose from the earth, the {gyros} rose with them, because the spirit of the living beings was in the {gyros}.

Wheels: gyros -When the heavens opened and the prophet Ezekiel saw visions of God, he saw four living beings, each with a wheel on the earth beside the beings (Ezek 1:15)—and the appearance of each wheel and their construction was as "a wheel within a wheel" (v. 16). Their construction were as gyroscopes used for navigation. And the texture of Scripture is as wheels within wheels, or as shadows in a hall of mirrors. It is this texture of Scripture that navigates disciples into the promised land of Christ’s rest.

22 There was a surface spread out above them like the sky. It sparkled like crystal.

23 Under the dome, each being had two wings that were stretched out straight, touching one another. Each being had two wings that covered its body.

24 When the beings moved, I heard the sound of their wings. The sound was like the noise of rushing water, like the thunder of the Almighty(Shaddai-Shadday), like the commotion in an army camp. When the beings stood still, they lowered their wings.

The Almighty God is Jesus! Jesus! See verse 28

25 A voice came from above the dome over their heads as they stood still with their wings lowered.

26 Above the dome over their heads was something that looked like a throne made of sapphire. On the throne was a figure that looked like a human.

The Godhead appears in the likeness of enthroned humanity, as in Exodus 24:10 . Besides the "paved work of a sapphire stone, as it were the body of heaven in clearness," there, we have here the "throne," and God "as a man," with the "appearance of fire round about." This last was a prelude of the incarnation of Messiah, but in His character as Saviour and as Judge ( Revelation 19:11-16 ). The azure sapphire answers to the color of the sky. As others are called "sons of God," but He "the Son of God," so others are called "sons of man" ( Ezekiel 2:1 Ezekiel 2:3 ), but He "the Son of man" ( Matthew 16:13 ), being the embodied representative of humanity and the whole human race; as, on the other hand, He is the representative of "the fulness of the Godhead" ( Colossians 2:9 ). While the cherubim are movable, the throne above, and Jehovah who moves them, are firmly fixed. It is good news to man, that the throne above is filled by One who even there appears as "a man." (Jamieson)

27 Then I saw what he looked like from the waist up. He looked like glowing bronze with fire all around it. From the waist down, he looked like fire. A bright light surrounded him.

Messiah is described here as in Daniel 10:5 Daniel 10:6 , Revelation 1:14 Revelation 1:15 .

 

28 The brightness all around him looked like a rainbow in the clouds. This was the way the glory of the LORD(Jesus) appeared to me. When I saw it, I fell face down in the dust, and I heard someone's voice speaking to me.

rainbow-the symbol of the sure covenant of mercy to God's children remembered amidst judgments on the wicked; as in the flood in Noah's days ( Revelation 4:3 ). "Like hanging out from the throne of the Eternal a fing of peace, assuring all that the purpose of Heaven was to preserve rather than to destroy. Even if the divine work should require a deluge of wrath, still the faithfulness of God would only shine forth the more brightly at last to the children of promise, in consequence of the tribulations needed to prepare for the ultimate good" [FAIRBAIRN].

 

So, as you can see, the Bible gives the only extra-terrestrial version of a UFO. It is Jesus or and Angel! It's that simple.  What is happening in China is one of these two examples mentioned above. Man made, or God made.  I suggest as of now, these are man made of some sort, be it a hoax, or military craft.


What's in a name? To God many things.....

Why We Do What We Do...

By Bob Barney

JacobgodDo you think names mean anything? Does your name represent anything?

It is probably difficult for most of us to understand today, but God says that names denote things.

In the Bible, names given to people usually signify something about them, their character or their importance. Adam, for example, means red dirt or clay. You see the LORD GOD made Adam out of red clay and wanted him to understand just where he came from every day of his life.  God wanted to make sure that Adam understood that although he was made in the image of God, he was still just dirt, and would be until the resurrection. 

ABRAHAM   means "father of many," which ended up being the case, while David means beloved. The name Jacob stood for "deceiver" and deceiver, he was!    He stole by deception his brother's birthright. Later God renamed him ISRAEL.  Many are surprised at the meaning of this name. It means that he struggled with God and won!   God (who became Jesus) actually wrestled physically with Jacob all night long, and allowed Jacob to win the fight!  Jacob literally fought God, and WON!  You can read it here:

Yes, God says names have a meaning, and now the point of this essay.

DNA-Solid Evidence? You might be surprised!

Micah's DNAMicah's DNA (Photo credit: micahb37)

By Bob Barney-The Plain Truth

The Plain Truth has uncovered shocking evidence that DNA convictions and acquittals just may be largely based on junk science and downright fraud. In case after case, we have documented hundreds of cases of unreliable DNA findings, which for the most part, most Americans have been led to believe that DNA evidence was rock solid. Shockingly it isn't!

 

According to this report by New Scientist DNA is largely considered to be the gold standard in forensics.  If a suspect's DNA is found at the crime scene, it is compelling evidence for a conviction.  But how is a DNA match determined?  There are many places in our genetic code where there are short sequences that are repeated over and over.  These repeated regions are called short tandem repeats or STRs.  The places where these STRs occur are called loci.  There are many variations in the lengths of STRs (I may have 5 repeats at a particular loci and you may have 8 ) and by looking at many different loci scientists create a kind of profile or human bar code that is unique to each individual.  This technique is also used to determine parentage because you inherit half of your unique barcode from your mother and half from your father.

SEX and GOD

By Bob Barney

First published in 2007

image from www.committeeforfirstprinciples.orgThis is a commentary on our recent Healthy Sex story. Many, including some in my family thought the story was too salacious for our news site.  That’s exactly the response I wanted. Why? Well, the plain truth is that most of us do not understand the truth behind sex. It is very unfortunate that so many people have had their minds obfuscated with false religious dogma concerning sex and what God really wants us to know about the subject. You will see that God is no prude when it comes to sex and actually has given us a guideline on how to enjoy it without any guilt!
 
 In Genesis, God creates man and woman after the GOD kind. Notice that all other created beings are created after their own kind, but man was created after God’s own kind. Note also that God says “Let US make man in OUR image”. At least two beings are talking together, and they claim to be God  (see the meaning of the word God here http://www.blueletterbible.org/faq/nbi/1303.html ). What is the very first thing that God realized about man? “It is not good for the man to be alone.”  God does not want us to be alone. He wants us in a union with another human, just as God is one, he wants us to be one, with the helpmate that God gives us. Next notice the first command God gave to Adam and Eve. Gen 1:28   God blessed them and told them, "Multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters over the fish and birds and all the animals."  Then we read a little later this: Gen. 4:1   “Now Adam slept with his wife, Eve, and she became pregnant.” (NLT translation).
 
 So sex was made for us to enjoy and to recreate after our own kind! We are meant to become part of the God Family. However, this command to have sex does not give us the license to have it with just anyone. Here are just SOME of the Biblical restrictions:

The Future of Europe, according to the Bible

Broken Now, but will reform into The Beast of Revelation!


Age of schism in west...

Five hundred years ago a political and religious crisis tore Europe apart. Now the continent is entering another age of schism. It is no secret that the European Union is in severe crisis. Besides the challenge of Brexit, the established order is threatened by a range of other schismatics and heretics to the south, east and indeed within the Franco-German core. What is less well understood is that in many ways we have been here before – 500 years ago, when the Reformation tore Europe apart.

Around 1500, most of our continent was shaped by a single geo-ideological and geopolitical order, or at least a common imaginary. Roman Catholicism reigned supreme from the west coast of Ireland to the eastern borders of Poland and Lithuania, from Norway’s North Cape to the heel of the Italian boot. A wronged wife in Yorkshire could appeal to the papacy for justice if necessary. You had to go quite far east or south-east to encounter the rival Christian order of Orthodoxy in Muscovy and much of the Balkans. This was the result of an earlier schism in the church, creating a second Rome in Constantinople, and after the fall of that city a Third Rome in Moscow. Europeans referred to their continent as “Christendom”.

This order was already under some pressure. The Roman Church was generally perceived to be in crisis. Clerical ignorance and corruption, for example the sale of “indulgences”, were increasingly regarded as intolerable. Demands for reform were widespread. In England, one of the great realms of Europe, the common people chafed under clerical abuses, and the monarchy under papal constraints on its authority. Ever since the Middle Ages, the parliamentary statute of “praemunire” had made it illegal to sue for justice in a foreign court, at least with regard to high matters of state. When all was said and done, though, the sense of inhabiting a political commonwealth was deeply ingrained throughout most of the continent.

What the Bible Says About the Future of Europe:

image from cache.eupedia.com   Make no doubt about it, there will be a "strongman" of Europe. He will be a man, not a woman. When he appears (and I don't know when) he will convince the civilized world that he is the greatest person who will have ever lived. He will be more popular than Jesus, and will fool many people. In fact, Jesus said that unless God loved His elect, even they would be deceived! Paul calls this evil man "The man of lawlessness." The man of lawlessness in 2 Thessalonians 2:1–12 is an antichrist who will come on the world stage at the beginning of the Day of the Lord. This Day, sometimes called the “end times.”  He is given the title “man of lawlessness” because he will oppose God's Law, just as the Catholic Church and most so-called Christian Churches do today!   Daniel 7 speaks of this man as a “boastful” king who will “try to change the set times and the laws” (verses 11 and 25). He will come offering a false peace and prosperity to the civilized world and will with his media-star- personality, convince everyone that he is a great human being.   He will be able to perform fake miracles, bring nations together in a global government,  and  align religiously with the Roman Church and the Pope, the False Prophet, and also an Antichrist.  They will make a covenant with Israel for three and one-half years (cf. Daniel 9:27, where “seven” indicates seven years). In the middle of the seven years, the man of lawlessness will break his covenant with Israel, stop their sacrifices (Daniel 9:27), and enter the temple to set himself up as “god” and demand worship (2 Thessalonians 2:4). This is the “abomination that causes desolation” that Jesus spoke of in Mark 13:14.

Two beasts are described in Revelation chapter 13, one from the sea (vs. 1) and one from the land (vs. 11). With the beast out of the sea, we come to that one who, regardless of his claims as the white horse rider or peace maker, comes as a great source of darkness into the world. He comes not to save the world, but to damn the world. In essence, what we have in this chapter in the rise of the beast and the false prophet is nothing short of the ‘trinity from hell’ in that both are the product of the machinations of that old serpent, the devil or Satan.

My view, which is NOT BIBLICAL, but just a hunch, is that this strongman of Europe will ride in on a wave of populism which is now raging worldwide, but unlike what people needlessly fear in Donald Trump, this man (maybe another billionaire) will use Trump's "game plan" to fool the world. The big difference of course is that the main stream media will anoint him, as they did Obama, as a savior!  The media is evil, controlled by the prince of the airways (Satan) and will always get it wrong when it comes to predicting evil people.  So, again, in conclusion, I will not doubt for a minute that we may see, appearing on our TV screens, a liberal billionaire who will come to prominence in Europe.  He will probably be German (but maybe Italian of Germanic decent).  Isaiah chapter 10 predicts that the antichrist or beast is Assyrian.  Assyria IS modern Germany!   Dr. Herman Hoeh wrote in "Germany in Prophecy!": "When the ancient Greek writers wanted to distinguish the Assyrians from the Arameans or Syrians, the Greeks called the Assyrians, 'Leucosyri' - meaning 'whites' or 'blonds' as distinct from the very brunette Syrians who still live in Mesopotamia." (Plain Truth, Jan. 1963, p.17). By the time of Christ, the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder recorded that the Assyrians were now dwelling north of the Black sea (Natural History, IV, 12, p.183). By this time, they had moved north.  But they did not stop there, as Herbert Armstrong wrote in The United States and Britain in Prophecy: "The Assyrians - before 604 B.C. - left their land north of Babylon and migrated northwest - through the lands that are now Georgia, the Ukraine, Poland, and into the land that is called GERMANY today. Today the descendants of those Assyrians are known to us as the GERMAN people" (pp.143-144, 1980 ed.).

For centuries, the German people have dominated the heartland of Western Europe. Yet they are a people who know very little about their true origin - or at least refuse to know. The Germans themselves are responsible for hiding much of this knowledge, just as many tried to hide their past at the end of the Hitler era. Just as the modern-day Israelites are one family of people from many different tribes, so too are the German people today. They number well over 100 million people worldwide - most of them residing in Germany and Austria.

We know who the nations of the world are. This knowledge, from God's word, enables us to understand the news today, and why and where things will happen - what to expect - and everything we need to know.

The STRONGMAN of EUROPE will appear on the world stage and when it happens - TROUBLE is about to hit the fan.......


Jonestown 40 years later and My journey to God

 Dead bodies litter the ground after a mass suicide at the People's Temple in Guyana 

On November 18, 1978, at the direction of charismatic cult leader Jim Jones, 909 members of the People’s Temple died, all but two from apparent cyanide poisoning, in a “revolutionary suicide.”

That single event holds a great deal of memories for me.  In 1978, after studying the Bible for 4 years, and trying with all my heart to prove that the Bible was not the word of God, events in my life, and reading the words on the pages of the Bible, I came to the conclusion that I could not prove the Bible wrong.  I could prove most of Christianity wrong easily, but after years of study, I came to the realization that Christianity, for the most part, simply does not follow the teachings of God, found in His Holy Book!  I did not come to the belief structure that I follow to this day easily. I did not want to accept everything the Bible made clear, and worse yet, history, science, archeology and common sense all proved the Bible as an accurate source of knowledge that came from the mind of God.

In October of 1978, I finally knew that the God of the Bible was real. I could deny that fact no longer.  I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut, so on November 17, 1978 I decided to drive back there, rent a hotel room, and read the Bible from cover to cover over the next few days.  On November 18th, the news broke on the hotel room's TV that Jim Jones shot and killed a Congressman, and had some 900 murdered drinking cyanid-laced kool aide.  I was shocked to see first hand how misusing the word of God leads to death, especially at this time in my life.

The sad thing that I came away with was that most Americans falser believe that what Jim Jones did had nothing to do with mainstream religion.  They are partly right, but also historically wrong.  Research the Spanish inquisition, or the murders by BURNING those Godly men who decided to print the Bible in English.  Yes, main stream Christianity has it's own Jonestown's, and the reason is so clear. When we allow men to tell us what is in the Bible, and don't read the Bible for ourselves, we open our minds to Satan and false Christianity.

After many years, I published a Bible and Commentary (5 Volumes), now available on Amazon.  It is expensive, I admit, but that is Amazon's pricing for the work. I make very little, and then donate back any profits by giving away free volumes for people in need.

You don't have to buy the Bible I am offering, but you do need to read the Bible!  You will be shocked to see that what you thought was in those pages are not there, and things you are positive that is not in the pages, actually are!

Back on this story of Jonestown, most probably don't know that some survived!    A number of Jonestown survivors have spoken out about the mass suicides and murders that killed the only life they ever knew and how they have managed to build new ones in the four decades since the tragedy.   More than 900 members of the Peoples Temple had lived in the agricultural mission in the distant jungle of Guyana, South America, led by the cult leader Rev. Jim Jones.

It was he who dreamed up Jonestown, he who willed it into being, and he who brought it down: First, with the assassination of U.S. Rep. Leo Ryan and four others by temple members on a nearby airstrip on November 18, 1978, then with the mass murders and suicides of hundreds, a horror that remains nearly unimaginable 40 years later.  

But some lived. Dozens of members in Guyana slipped out of Jonestown or happened to be away that day. Plunged into a new world, those raised in the temple or who joined as teens lost the only life they knew: church, jobs, housing - and most of all, family and friends.

Forgiving others

By Bob Barney

Matthew 6:9-13- TPT Bible Version...

Our Father in heaven,
    may your name be kept holy.
10 May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth,
    as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today the food we need,
12 and forgive us our sins,
    as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
13 And don’t let us yield to temptation,
    but rescue us from the evil one.

1.forgiveness

This is the second installment on an article I wrote about the misconception that many have about forgiving others.   It seems that most think that Christ told us to forgive what evil things people do to OTHER PEOPLE.  He did not.  Check the Lord's Prayer (above again) and notice that big "US" in it.   He did not say others!  Jesus did not say, "as we have forgiven those who sin against them, or him, or her.   We are to forgive those who sin against us!

Consider the following examples:

I’m Going to Die- You’re Going to Die

The Bible Plainly Tells us about Death- We just don’t want to believe it!

By Bob Barney

Bible-death

     I turned 64 just a few weeks ago, and honestly the prospect of dying in the next 10-15 years is sobering.  Most of us are living a bit longer than several generations ago, but most die still in their seventies.   The idea that most of your life is behind you is a sobering fact, and believe it or not, The Holy Bible is not as comforting on the subject as many believe, or better yet, led to believe by their church.


    The notion that when we die, we instantly go to heaven (or hell) is very comforting to many people. In fact, I know people who where joyfully waiting to die, so they could be with their loved ones.  That faith in one’s death has comforted many people over the years.  I wish that could comfort me. I probably could accept dying much easier if I believed that I was going to heaven when I die – the sad PLAIN TRUTH of the matter is that I am not, and I know it. I know it because God tells me plainly that when I die, I will rest in a grave (in the King James Version they rendered “grave” as hell, thus giving us the wrong idea of just what “hell” means=simply “a grave.”).

     You see, The Bible compares death to sleep. It does so dozens of times!  Never does the Bible say that a loved one has died and gone to heaven.  After death we are asleep, we are unconscious; we are not aware of the passing of time or of what is going on around us. We cannot see and watch over our loved ones. We can’t interfere in their fate or help them in any way. We are DEAD!   The Bible says:

 “5 Yes, the living know they are going to die, but the dead know nothing. They have no further reward; they are completely forgotten.” (The Plain Truth Bible – all quotes in this article)

                 The dead have no consciousness. They are in the grave in a deep sleep like a seed (1 Corth 15) and will remain until the Resurrection.  see also Psalm 146:4; 115:17).

Shocking Plain Truth Report: Rapists with Badges

Women have a 1.5 times more chance to be raped by a cop than by the entire male US population!

Police Departments Ignore Rampant Sexual Assault by Officers

By Bob Barney

image from yournation.orgAccording to the 3rd Quarter Report of The National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project, police officers were accused of sexual assault at a rate of 79 per 100,000 law enforcement personal. The rate of accusations for the general public is 28.7 per 100,000 general public.  When corrected for gender these numbers tell us that there are 1.5 times more accusations of sexual assualt among  male law enforcement officers than among the general male population.  The fact that rapists seem to be concentrated among a group of armed individuals who have the purported authority to detain and arrest other individuals should be more than a little alarming for even the most prolific police bootlicker. In just the last month, several stories of officers committing disgusting crimes have been in the news. (source).

The Plain Truth has uncovered a shocking expose of facts on just how horrible the situation has become.  No longer are American policemen the bastion of decency and moralism.  There was a time, wIn-Texhen any child, woman or man in trouble could depend that the person that they could run to in times of trouble wore a blue uniform and carried a badge. No longer. We have reported the multitude of unnecsseray police assaults, shootings and brutality that most patriotic Americans simply will not face up to.  They watch the glorification of the police force on Fox News, and anyone willing to call attention to the problem are branded anti-American liberals.  I am not liberal, I am more conservative than any personality on Fox News, but I do see brutality and unconstitutional acts of policemen when I see them! Unfortunately, I see these stories every day.

A Miami-Dade police officer, was charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation for fondling teenage girls during a traffic stop. A former Fredericktown, Missouri police captain and Boy Scout leader, Kenneth D. Tomlinson II, was sentenced to three consecutive life terms plus 22 years for sexual contact with two boys, beginning when they were 11.  A Houston Police Officer, Abraham Joseph, has been charged with an aggravated sexual assault that allegedly occurred while he was on duty. Officer Joseph has been accused of handcuffing a woman and then raping her on the trunk of his patrol car. The city of Charlotte, North Carolina will pay a 17 year old victim of former police officer Marcus Jackson, $350,000 to settle her lawsuit against the city.  Jackson is now serving a two year sentence for sexually assaulting six women while on duty. Click here for the link citing a half dozen other incidents of brutal sexual crimes women and boys.

Why the Middle East will always be in your future

Editor's note: This article was the very first one ever published on The Plain Truth back on December 14th 2007!

By Bob Barney
Armageddon
We have war in Afghanistan, war in Iraq, war is maybe coming to Iran, Israel and Syria. It has been this way since before you were even born. Why? After all, we had war in Europe in 1914 and 1940, but not today. War in Japan in the forties, but not in the past fifty years, so why has every decade seen a problem in the Mid-East? Is it Oil? Is it another reason.

In the late 1940's, the USA was the world's largest oil producer. We did not need oil from the middle east, yet war erupted between the newly formed Israel and its Arab allies. The same thing happened again in the fifties, and the sixties and we still really didn't need the Arab's oil. By 1973 we did need their oil and thus today, everyone without a view on history mistakenly assumes that war in the middle east is about oil. IT IS NOT!

This war has nothing to do with oil, or George Bush or even The United States per say; it has everything to do with religion and about God and God's role in world events. This article can be read anytime in the future and there will still be strife in the middle east. The strife ends, according to the Bible ONLY after Christ returns and not a day before. We realize that we claim to be a news site, and we are, but if there is a God, and it is the God of the Bible and if Jesus Christ is that God of the Bible, then what he has to say is news, is it not?
