One doesn't have to be all that spiritual to recognize that things are not going very well for citizens of the world right now, but most of us have no clue why things are going badly, and maybe spinning out of control. Today we are facing four worldwide problems which could kill millions of us, and for the most part, nobody knows why. According to the Bible, these four worldwide problems are really spirits which will eventually destroy up to 5 billion people worldwide! Interested? You should be, because whether you want to believe it or not, these problems affect you and your loved ones right now.

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

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

For many, today is Good Friday

Good Friday is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday, as followed by most mainstream Christian churches. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified, yet the Bible never mentions the day "Friday" as the actual day Christ died, it was inferred by early Catholic church leaders almost 300 years after Christ's death on the stake. If you are interested in a study of the issue, please see our article on SUNDAY that discusses the various views on which day Jesus was crucified. Assuming that Jesus was crucified and died on a Friday, modern churches follow this day (TODAY) as the day Jesus died.

The Bible does not instruct Christians to remember Good Friday or Easter for that matter, the holiday that the early church followed was Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Why is Good Friday referred to as “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans did to Jesus was definitely not good (see Matthew chapters 26-27). However, as church theolgians say today is that the results of Christ’s death "are very good!" Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” First Peter 3:18 tells us, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”

Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, usually in the evening, in which Christ’s death is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, a message centered on Christ suffering for our sakes, and observance of the Lord's Supper. Whether or not Christians choose to “celebrate” Good Friday, the events of that day should be ever on our minds because the death of Christ on the cross is the paramount event of the Christian faith.

If you follow today as Good Friday, be aware of the Biblical account but most importantly remember that on a day in history, GOD DIED FOR YOUR SINS! That knowledge and a humble and contrite heart will bring you a long way on the path to your salvation........


BOB BARNEY: How I came to believe what I do

By Bob Barney

I have had several people over the years ask me how I came to what I believe.  I wrote this too a young lady that emailed me questioning God.     This was written in 2009.

IMG_7470

That family God gave me some 38 years later (now 40)

Thanks for your interest in The Plain Truth and what brought me to believe in God. Cathy like you there was a time in my life when I thought I had proven scientifically that God did not exists. I started out as a child believing in God, but years of schooling and my science classes taught me that God was a myth and that science was what was real. This happened at an early age for me, so by the time I was 12, I did not think God was real. When I was 7, I was a strong believer and prayed every night to a God I later realized never seemed to hear my prayers.

Evolution made the most sense to me, and it was something I could see with my own eyes – or so I thought for quite a few years.

I started college in 1973. I went thru high school as an atheist and a strong believer in modern science. In my second year at college I took a biology course taught by a professor that I became close friends with. It was 1975. That also happened to be the year I first heard a broadcast from Garner Ted Armstrong. Ted was unlike any person I have ever heard before, and if you haven't watched any of the videos I have posted of him, you will not understand my description. He was bright, informed, educated and knew science as good as anyone. I listened to him for a week before I even knew he was an evangelist! Really! When I realized he was, I turned him off. Like a modern day liberal, or scientists (they are the same) I didn't want to hear from any “religious” nut. A week went by, and I began to listen to him again. I was intrigued, because he made so much sense.

He did a show called, “A theory for the birds” (it is also a booklet's title) in which he stated, “Did the miracle of flight come from frayed. loosely hanging fish scales? Did the myriads of birds evolve from ungainly, hulking caymans and crocodiles? Evolutionists say they did. Reason, logic, common sense, true science and the Great Creator God say they didn't! Here's the proof presented from the kingdom of our fine feathered friends.” 

He went on: “Did God use green slime, or brown scum, or algae, or amoeba, or viruses and bacteria, or polka-dotted air bubbles in the sea, or cracks in rocks, or extreme heat, or extreme cold, or a chance strike of lightning in a primordial soup of methane and ammonia to create life on earth? The answer is no, and you can prove it scientifically!”

I thought to myself, “scientifically?” I needed to hear more.... I came up with these 7 problems with evolution. 

  1. Lack of a viable mechanism for producing high levels of complex and specified information. Related to this are problems with the Darwinian mechanism producing irreducibly complex features, and the problems of non-functional or deleterious intermediate stages. (For details see: “The NCSE, Judge Jones, and Bluffs About the Origin of New Functional Genetic Information,” “Do Car Engines Run on Lugnuts? A Response to Ken Miller & Judge Jones’s Straw Tests of Irreducible Complexity for the Bacterial Flagellum,” “Opening Darwin’s Black Box,” or “Can Random Mutations Create New Complex Features? A Response to TalkOrigins“)

  1. The failure of the fossil record to provide support for Darwinian evolution. And the failure of molecular biology to provide evidence for a grand “tree of life.”  

  1. Evolutionary scientists date the earth at approximately 4.5 to 5 billion years old. Most folks are not aware that there is really no incontrovertible scientific proof to establish these fantastic dates. They are grounded in a series of assumptions that are based upon evolutionary premises. In other words, the “clock” is rigged to provide the “long ages” of earth’s history. Why is this the case? Because, as everyone concedes, time is an absolutely essential ingredient in the Darwinian scheme. Dr. George Wald of Harvard called it the “hero of the plot.” Evolutionists need vast amounts of time for the millions of evolutionary changes to occur which would produce the amoebae-to-man phenomenon.

It has been demonstrated many times, however, that the “evolutionary clocks” are terribly flawed (see Jackson 2003). Here is a somewhat recent example.

  1. Law on entropy:There is a universal tendency for all systems to go from order to disorder, as stated in the Second Law, and this tendency can only be arrested and reversed under very special circumstances. We have already seen, in Chapter I, that disorder can never produce order through any kind of random process. There must be present some form of code or program, to direct the ordering process, and this code must contain at least as much "information" as is needed to provide this direction.  Furthermore, there must be present some kind of mechanism for converting the environmental energy into the energy required to produce the higher organization of the system involved. ...   Thus, any system that experiences even a temporary growth in order and complexity must not only be "open" to the sun's energy but must also contain a "program" to direct the growth and a "mechanism" to energize the growth. 

  1. The failure of chemistry to explain the origin of the genetic code. (For details, see “The origin of life remains a mystery” or “Problems with the Natural Chemical ‘Origin of Life’“);

  1. Where did the hydrogen atom come from? 

    The last one, number six is my idea. After listening and reading up on the flaws of evolution, I went to my great friend and professor of biology and asked him how I could discredited this information. To my surprise, he just got angry, like an Obama liberal does today when you question details about socialism. 

I was stunned by his reaction. I assumed he had the answers, but he did not! He called it all BS and walked away from me. I was his friend, so I cornered him the next day and asked again. He replied, “If you want to believe in fairy tales, go ahead, but leave me out of it! Where did your God come from Bob? Everything has to have a beginning!”

I replied, “They say he has always existed.”

Exactly,” he replied. “Are you going to believe that nonsense?”

I replied, “if everything was started by a hydrogen atom exploding, where did that atom come from? Who, what or why was it made?” 

His answer? “IT HAS ALWAYS EXISTED!”

I was dumbfounded... “So,” I replied, “you don't want to believe a God always existed, but the hydrogen atom did?” He walked away, mad at me, and we never were friends again.

Cathy, I did not become a believer over night. For the next three years I tried to disprove God, and especially the God of the Bible, and each time I did, all I did was disprove a religion! Man's god, not the true God!

By 1978 I knew not only God existed, but that God was the one found in the Bible. Not the Catholic or Protestant churches, but the one found in the pages of the Bible. The God I DID NOT WANT TO FOLLOW! I did not want to ditch Christmas. I did not want to do a Saturday for Sunday thing, and I did not want to admit their were laws I needed to obey- but I knew I had too. God was real.

For the next few years, after going to God one night telling Him to leave me alone, I surrendered. Like Jacob of the Bible, I fought with God for my first 20 years. 

1979 I did my first Passover. With very little help, and by myself, after years of struggling whether if Good really existed, I came to know God was real, calling me and I made sure I would do whatever I could as best as I could.

Nobody in my family did any holidays, except Christmas and Easter. Mom had stopped going to church by 1973, and I had no place really to do my first Passover. So I asked Grandma Brandt in doing it up there, and she agreed. I bought Riunite and Matzo’s- and had my first Passover by myself there. Honestly, I don’t remember if I did Matzos or just plain old Italian Bread-with the yeast! I was new to everything and I really had nobody to help me. It was an education by trial and error, and hopefully forgiveness from God.

I went thru some hard times at first, but God also quickly answered prayers in those days for me. The more you believe, the slower the answers. It's a test. I remember Ted telling me once, “If you think God is calling you, expect nothing but trouble! GOD IS HARDEST ON THOSE HE CALLS and LOVES!” I found this to be true.

All I can say is pray to God, read the Bible without preconceived notions in what you will find, and read the words on the page! Test God and make God prove to you that GOD IS REAL. Also test science, as I did. Don't believe someone because you think they are smarter than you. Most likely they are not- just more snowballed.

God is not looking for vegetables! He gave us a mind to think, reason and to understand the truth of life! Most religions want you to be zombies. God does not. 

Remember these words:

Ephesians 6:10-18 New International Version (NIV)

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit,which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 

Give God a chance to Prove all things, and I think you will find eventually God will!   I know one thing, when you are resurrected from the dead (either the 1st or second) you will know for sure!

God Bless 

 


Today is FIRST FRUITS - what does this mean to you?

By Bob Barney:

History of the Feast of First Fruits

image from eudoranachand.files.wordpress.comLeviticus 23:10-12 (KJV): 10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the First Fruits of your harvest unto the priest: 11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12 And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD.

When Israel entered the Promised Land, they were to observe the God's Holy Feasts - one of which is named THE FEAST OF THE BARLEY HARVEST (First Fruits): When the standing barley harvest was ready to be reaped, the owner of the field would take a sheaf of barley to the priest. This sheaf was called "the sheaf of first fruits". The priest will then take the sheaf and wave it before YHWH(Yahweh-LORD) in the House of YHWH(Yahweh-LORD) . Other offerings were prescribed as well with the sheaf offering (Lev 23:13-22).

The timing of this offering was made in a way that can be confusing. The sheaf was to be waved the day after the Sabbath (Lev 23:11). Which Sabbath?  Upon further reading, it becomes clear that the Sabbath isn't a weekly one, but the last day of Unleavened Bread - or the 22nd of the 1st month. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is a celebration for seven days, that starts the Day after Passover.


Messianic Fulfillment of the Feast of First Fruits by Jesus:

The Bible is about Jesus Christ. He is the LORD or Yahweh of the Bible. All Holy Days (holidays) are representations of Christ's plan of salvation and the construction of His Kingdom: The Holy scriptures clearly command us to not only celebrate God's Holy Days, but to keep them holy and separated to the LORD (Exo 23:16,19; 34:26 Lev 2:12,14; 23:20; Num 18:12-15,26; Deu 18:1-5; 26:2-4,10; 2 Chr 31:5; Neh 10:35-39; Pro 3:9; Jer 2:3; Eze 44:40; 48:14; Mal 3:8-14; Heb 6:20; 7:1-8).

Jesus was the firstborn in many respects:

Firstborn of Mary (Mat 1:23-25)
First-begotten of God (Heb 1:6)
First-begotten of all creatures (Col 1:15)
First-begotten of the dead (Rev 1:5)
Firstborn of many brethren (Rom 8:29)
First fruits of the resurrected (1 Cor 15:20,23)
Begin of the creation of God (Rev 3:14)
The preeminent One ( Col 1:18)

Jesus is our High Priest forever (Heb 5:10; 7:1-3; Psa 110:4).   He Himself, upon returning to Heaven, in the heavenly Temple of the LORD, literally waved Himself as this offering to the Father. In John 20:15, Mary sees a man outside the tomb and thinks it is the gardener since the man wore filthy garments. It was in fact Jesus in these filthy  garments.  In John 20:17 after Jesus calls her by name whom she recognizes Him. However, He strangely tells her not to touch Him for He has not been ascended unto the Father!  What did that mean?  Read Zechariah 3 to get a picture of what took place in heaven when Jesus waved Himself as First Fruit in heaven before the Father.

Notice upon His resurrection, he told Mary not to touch Him! A week later, Thomas could touch him - that's because until the Feast of First Fruits, he had not yet risen to heaven and became "born-again." Some think that First Fruits is resurrection day-- IT IS NOT!


Spiritual Implications of the Feast of First Fruits:

The sheaf or bunch of barley typifies a person or persons in the scriptures (Gen 37:5-11). When Jesus returns to rule over all the Earth as King he will bring with Him His sheaves (CHRISTIANS). The believers are the fruits that were produced from the seed.  His own death and resurrection (Psa 126; Jer 31:9-14; Joe 3:11-13; Zec 14:3-5; Mat 13:37-39; Mar 4:26-29; Jude 14; Rev 1:7). This HOLY DAY is another Festival called First Fruits- It's called PENTECOST- 50 days from TODAY!!!!! Today STARTS THE COUNTDOWN TO PENTECOST as JESUS on the first FIRST FRUITS began the countdown to His return!

So believers who follow Him and His plan will become First Fruit of the seed He has sown (Jam 1:17-18; 1 The 4:13-18).

FIRST FRUITS

By Bob Barney.   APRIL 10th is the FEAST of FIRST FRUITS!

1One of the most obscure holidays in the Bible is the one called "First-fruits."  Confusion concerning this day is that the celebration of Pentecost is also referred to as first-fruits in scripture, but  a careful reading of scripture shows us that the actual Feast of First-Fruits occurs directly after Passover, and it is the day that one starts county 50 days until the arrival of Pentecost, called counter the Omer.  However the actual date that First-fruits falls on is another, in a long line of mistakes often followed by God's Church.  Because Christ rose from the dead after 3 days, most agree that the date of First-Fruits is Abib 16th.  There are several problems with that date however. First Christ did not raise from the dead on Abib 16th,  but rather the 18th day of the first month.  Christ died on a Wednesday, the 15th day of the month. Thursday, the 16th, he was dead, and so Friday the 17th.  He rose late Saturday night on the 18th of the first month (See are article on God's Calendar).

Over the years, the above statements by myself has received  the most objection.  Most want to place First-Fruits within the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and on the day Jesus rose from the dead.  It could not be so, and here is the Bible verse which makes it doubtful: " From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of the finest flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offering of firstfruits to the Lord. 18 Present with this bread seven male lambs, each a year old and without defect, one young bull and two rams. They will be a burnt offering to the Lord, together with their grain offerings and drink offerings—a food offering, an aroma pleasing to the Lord.19 Then sacrifice one male goat for a sin offering[c] and two lambs, each a year old, for a fellowship offering. 20 The priest is to wave the two lambs before the Lord as a wave offering, together with the bread of the first-fruits. They are a sacred offering to the Lord for the priest. 21 On that same day you are to proclaim a sacred assembly and do no regular work. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live."

Reading Leviticus 23 can be confusing, as some read the above verse as pertaining to Pentecost, however, verse 20 makes it quite clear that the two loaves with YEAST happens on First-Fruits. Since we can not consume bread with yeast during unleavened bread, it makes sense that this day must be after the days of unleavened bread.  The Sabbath could be the Saturday Sabbath, but most likely it is the High Sabbath that occurs on the last day of Passover Week.  Making the twenty second the date of First-Fruits.

Although it may make sense that Jesus rising from the dead seems to be First-Fruits, possibly there is something different in it's meaning.  I think the clue to this is what Jesus told Mary in John chapter 20.  After Jesus has left the tomb, He appears to Mary. At first she does not recognize him.  When she does, she apparently grabs and hugs him in excitement. Jesus says to her, " Do not hang on to me, for I have not ascended to My Father..."  What could that possibly mean? This passage has given rise to a variety of interpretations. Jesus required Thomas to touch him John 20:27, and it has been difficult to ascertain why he forbade this now to Mary. It seems likely that the Feast of First-Fruits IS NOT symbolizing the day Jesus rose from the dead, but the day Jesus presented his Blood in Heaven to the father the day after Passover week.

Although He told Mary he had not yet ascended to the Father (John 20:17), which is First-Fruits, His blood was to be offered on the mercy seat (Hebrews 8:3-6) in the Heavenly Temple on the Day of First-Fruits.  Eight days later (and after First-Fruits), He appeared to Thomas and the other disciples after this had happened which is why he said peace (Shalom) to them and allowed him to feel his wounds and hold on to Him as proof (John 20:19). So, it is MY OPINION (not scripture friends) that on the Day of First-Fruits (TODAY, the twenty-second day of the first month of Abib, He had made peace for us by His blood to our Father in Heaven. (Colossians 1:19-20).  Today, not on the day of His resurrection, Christ became our First-Fruits!  1 Corinthians 15:20..." But now Christ is risen from the dead, and became the firstfruits of those who slept."


Question: "What is the significance of unleavened bread for Christians?"

English: "Holyland" brand matzah, ma...(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Today is the sixth Day of the Feast

Tomorrow is the last Day, Followed by First Fruits!

By Bob Barney

The Bible tells us that the Israelites were commanded by the God who became Jesus Christ (The Yahweh of the Bible) to eat unleavened bread during the Passover and to continue to do it every year to remember their bondage.  Since the Israelites were forced out of Egypt hastily, they did not have time for the bread to rise, so it was made on that very first Passover without leaven, also known as yeast.  The Bible informs us of the following: "Do not eat it with bread made with yeast, but for seven days eat unleavened bread, the bread of affliction, because you left Egypt in haste—so that all the days of your life you may remember the time of your departure from Egypt" (Deuteronomy 16:3). Further commands regarding the eating of unleavened bread are found in Exodus 12:829:2; and Numbers 9:11. To this day, in Jewish homes, the Passover celebration includes unleavened bread, but did you know that more and more Christians are following the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread?  Here's why.

All of the so-called "Old Testament" Holy Days, are actually foreshadowing the coming of the Messiah, that Christians know as Jesus Christ. For example, Passover was commanded by God in Exodus,Leviticus 23:4-5 and throughout the scriptures.. It is mentioned at least 25 times in the New Testament. It is in the New Testament that we come to realize the true significane of Passover, and in fact all of God's Holy Days, including the Sabbath Day.

Paul, in 1 Corinthians 5:7-8:  said “Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth”   

The Days of Unleavened Bread is the the second festival, right after Passover that Christians are told to remember. During this time, Christians realize that the Holy Day represents the sin that is in all of our lives (sin=yeast), and we understand that by putting yeast out of our homes, represent putting sin out of our lives. Paul refers to it as “the leaven of malice and wickedness” (1 Corinthians 5:8). 

The way in which Jesus fulfilled these Biblical God commanded feasts is part of the true Gospel of Christ. Without understanding God's Holy Days, we cannot understand God's plan for mankind.  In the Hebrew Scriptures, the Jewish prophet Amos records that God declared He would do nothing without first revealing it to His servants, the prophets (Amos 3:7). From the Old Covenant to the New, Genesis to Revelation, God provides picture after picture of His entire plan for mankind and one of the most startling prophetic pictures is outlined for us in the Biblical feasts of Leviticus 23.

The Hebrew word for “feasts” (moadim) literally means "appointed times." God has carefully planned and orchestrated the timing and sequence of each of the Seven feasts to show us His plan for mankind and the Universe. The seven annual feasts of Israel were spread over seven months of God's calendar, at set times appointed by God.  But for both Jews and non-Jews who have placed their faith in Jesus, the Jewish Messiah, these special days demonstrate the work of redemption through God’s Son.

The first four of the seven feasts occur during the springtime (Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Weeks), and they all have already been fulfilled by Christ in the New Testament. The final three holidays (Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles) occur during the fall, all within a short fifteen-day period.

It is a shame that today, most Christians do not understand God's plan and His Holy days. Instead most follow pagan holidays such as Easter and Christmas, days that God commanded us NOT TO FOLLOW!  For example, what do colored eggs and chocolate rabbits have to do with the supposed meaning of the day, or Santa Claus and Christmas trees have to do with the birth of Christ?

Why can’t we find any instructions about the careful observance of Christmas and Easter in the pages of the Bible? One would think such important celebrations would be a major part of the teaching of the New Testament Church. But the Bible does not teach their observance. The Bible teaches seven meaningful holy days, but not the major holidays celebrated today. 

The reality is that the Bible forbids the observance of holidays like Christmas and Easter that have their origin centuries before the birth of Jesus Christ! Let’s examine holy days vs. holidays.

It's time that we start to obey God.  If we do, God will bless us as individuals and as His nation. The Holy Days, like today is as important now as they have ever been---maybe more so.


What's Wrong with the Ten Commandments?

By Bob Barney

Ten-commandments-nivBelieve it or not, your neigbor may not believe that the Ten Commandments are important anymore. We read almost every week where some group is forced to take down the Ten Commandments from some public square or building, but when you question many Christians today, they claim that Jesus did away with the Law and the Ten Commandments when he died. They get this crazy idea from some misunderstood quotes from the Apostle Paul. One is:"For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace." Romans 6:14. They try to use this to try and prove an argument that Christians are not under the Law, but under grace.

So for you I ask, which of the Ten Commandments is it OK for me to break, as A CHRISTIAN. I mean just in case Jesus was wrong, when he stated... " Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Lawlessness- breaking God's Laws)". Yes, I realize that Jesus claims that many good Christians, who did not follow the Law will be rejected by Him when he returns, but maybe He was in error. (look and read Matthew chapter 7)

Or John was probably also in error when he wrote: "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." 1 John 3. Or again, when he wrote: 
"He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." Or when Jesus said to the rich man who asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” (Notice by the way that Jesus didn't tell him he already had eternal life, it was just a question if he was going to live it out in heaven or hell); "to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.’" (For you biblical illiterates out there, Jesus is citing some of the Ten Commandments here). Maybe Jesus, John, Peter and ALL of the Old 
Testament prophets didn't get the memo from God yet that the Ten Commandments were to be abolished, but I ask again this question... Which of these Commandments is it OK to break and remain a Christian?

I will present the Ten out of order:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me." So I guess we can now worship other Gods?

“You shall not steal." I guess many Christian ministers are glad this has been done away with, I know Democrats are.

“You shall not commit adultery."  Thank God, I can screw whomever I love!  I can be a queer, or a whoremonger!

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."   This really helps trial lawyers remain perfect Christians- and polictians too!

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you."  Most of us today are very happy for this reversal. Our parents are always wrong anyways, just ask any teenager- or your own teenager!

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments."  Catholics especially are glad that this has been done away with, IN FACT they have their own 10 Commandments and leave this entire one out! Proof? HERE read this link

“You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.”  Man, now it's OK to work on stealing your neighbor's wife away from that louse, otherwise known as her husband.... 

“You shall not murder."  I wonder if those Christians think now that I can kill them and stay faithful to God....

“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain."  I mean, everyone has to be happy that this one is gone right? You God Damn right it is! 

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it."  OOPS!  Now this is the only one you really have a problem with after all, isn't it?  BE HONEST with YOURSELF!

So you see, friends, if you claim the Law is abolished, you are only talking about the Sabbath Day. The day Jesus said he is LORD over. The day He said pray that your flight will not occur on (proving that the Sabbath is still in force during the End Times), the only day God has ever sanctioned! We are always to follow all of God's Law, but thanks be Jesus Christ, when we do break the laws today, we are no longer under the death penalty!  We are freed from the penalty when we realize our sin and REPENT (turn and follow the law again) and accept forgiveness.  It's just that simple!  Read your Bible, especially the words in RED!

The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible


Jesus Said MANY would come in HIS Name? Are you following a False Christ?


By Bob Barney-The Plain Truth

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

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

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


    This is a very tough line by Jesus Himself! Notice that confessing on Jesus, and saying that you 'believe on Him' means NOTHING for our salvation! In fact, He goes on to say that many who do miracles and 'love the Lord' will be sent away from Jesus during the first judgment day! Notice that churches do not teach this verse very often, because Jesus plainly states that one must believe and OBEY! Obeying means to follow the Law of God.

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

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


The Jewish Calendar IS NOT God's calendar

 Bob Barney

Many years ago, after reading the Bible and the many commentaries I began to realize that those Christians (and Jews) who follow the evening day (this means that these people maintain the God's day begins at sundown and not sunrise, as it actually does), and that follow the lunar months had drawn wrong conclusions. The fact that the Bible never decries an evening beginning of the day, or a 13 month lunar solar calendar could not be overlooked. When I first came to these conclusions, I was greeted with outright ridicule. The Bible is clear that God's year has only 360 days, 12 months of 30 days each. The real Calendar given to Moses was SOLAR based on fixing the new year on the spring equinox. Moses was raised as an Egyptian, which also followed the SOLAR and not a Lunar-Solar Year. The Hebrew Calendar given to Moses by God was the same as the Egyptian, but starting with a different month. The year started on the spring equinox (March 20-21) instead of the summer solstice (The Egyptian new year about June 21). The Bible shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that God's calendar only has 12--- 30-day months (that's only 360 days, the true year BEFORE the Flood of Noah) and that 5 1/4 days of each year are simply NOT COUNTED!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Many today do not believe in the flood, but the evidence of the great flood of Noah is found everywhere and no place better than the calendar, any calendar!  Before the flood, the earth was formed perfectly and the calendar was also perfect! The pre-flood humans followed a 360 day, twelve month calendar with each month have exactly thirty days! After the flood however, all hell broke out for mankind trying to keep the old "perfect" calendar. The earth had trillions of tons of extra water weight and sloed down! 5 1/4 days slower to be exact! Ever since, man has tried to make the calendar perfect again, but we cannot! The moon now circles the earth in only 29.5 days, so lunar months are no longer accurate (a lunar year is only 356 days long) Post flood mankind worked on calendars for generations. The Egyptians finally decided on a fix for the calendar that is actually more accurate than the calendar we follow today! Even with our modern calendar, we lose a day every four years (leap year) and we almost never know how many days are in many months (28, 29, 30 or 31????) The Egytian and Moses' calendar had 12-30 day months EVERY YEAR and 5 and 1/4 "no days". This calendar never needed adjustment! Passover, and all Holy Days (except the weekly Sabbath fell on the same date each year!)

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

Here is a rabbi, coming to some of the same conclusions – those who follow the lunar calendar are actually following the Babylonian Calendar!

New moon takes the bull by the horns

By Ilan Ben Zion

 

Magnificent 8th century stone monument at Israel Museum preserves link between ancient Aramean god and Jewish calendar

image from cdn.timesofisrael.comIt’s easy to walk past the gray-brown slab of basalt in the Israel Museum’s archaeology wing and pay it no heed. (I confess to have done so numerous times; the silver amulets bearing ancient renditions of the priestly blessing garner far more attention.) But etched into the monumental stele’s pocked surface is a mysterious figure central to understanding the significance of the lunar god in ancient Canaan and the origins of the Jewish veneration of the new moon. The nearly four-foot-tall volcanic stone is marked with a striking bull-headed figure whose powerful gaze bores through the viewer. Its horns bend inward like the sliver of a day-old moon.

According to the biblical account, King David married Maachah, the daughter of King Talmai of Geshur, forging a political alliance between Israel and its stronger neighbor. In 732 BCE, Assyrian King Tiglath-Pileser III embarked on a campaign of conquest and destruction in Canaan. Bethsaida, like many cities in the southern Levant, was put to the sword. The stele was smashed and cast down in ruin.

So the god depicted on the stele was an incarnation of Baal? It’s not as clearcut as that, Arie admits. The bull’s head on the Bethsaida stele is surmounted by horns forming a clearly defined crescent moon, suggesting it may represent a lunar deity.

Although the storm god reigned supreme among the Arameans, as the Syrian kingdom fell under Assyrian influence, the moon god — particularly the new moon — found increased significance in the Aramean and Israelite pantheons, Swiss Near East expert Othmar Keel said.

Keel enumerated over 100 depictions of the Near Eastern god represented by the crescent moon affixed atop a pole in his exhaustive work “Goddesses and Trees, New Moon and Yahweh.” Nearly exact copies of the Bethsaida stele have been found at sites in Syria and southern Turkey — a staff topped by a bull’s head whose horns form the crescent moon.

The significance of the cryptic bull-headed moon god looming in Israel Museum’s galleries remains a subject of heated scholarly debate — not everyone is convinced of Keel’s thesis — but vestiges of its worship may persevere in modern Judaism. Whether true or not, the lunar calendar and celebration of the new moon in today’s liturgy harks back to the age preserved in the Bethsaida stele.   Read the complete article HERE

 

Mueller, Trump, Conspiracy Theories and The Plain Truth

By Bob Barney

3-Twelve-TribesAll the Trump supporters are high giving themselves about Barr's release of the Mueller report on the fake news story concerning Russian Collusion - which happened, but by Obama and Hillary Clinton.   As I wrote 14 months ago, the Mueller report was an attempt by the deep state to undo an election and to stage a coup and oust Trump.  Contrary to what peopler Trump think, as I predicted 14 months ago, the Mueller report will still be a "hit piece" on Trump.  There is fake news on the Trump side as well, as people today have been blinded to the Plain Truth.  By the way, the Bible predicted 2500 years ago that God would send a delusion on the people and they would start to believe lies, even nonsense lies.

On the web, there is something called "Q" or "Q-Anon," a completely BOGUS nonsenical set of conspiracy theories that many believers think is God.   It's the opposite.  It spews lies, like "Mueller is really a Trump supporter."   We will see in a few more months.  

In November 2017, a small-time YouTube video creator and two moderators of the 4chan website, one of the most extreme message boards on the internet, banded together and plucked out of obscurity an anonymous and cryptic post from the many conspiracy theories that populated the website's message board.

Over the next several months, they would create videos, a Reddit community, a business and an entire mythology based off the 4chan posts of “Q,” the pseudonym of a person claiming to be a high-ranking military officer. The theory they espoused would become Qanon, and it would eventually make its way from those message boards to national media stories and the rallies of President Donald Trump.

The original "Q" was a Trump hating liberal, who wanted to expose how stupid Trump supporters are.  Unfortunately some Trump supporters are as ill-informed as the morons on the left.  I blame Fox News for this.  Fox, a darling of the conservatives, is actually run by a bunch of liberals, who allow so much nonsense on their airwaves, that many conservatives, who used to get their news from many sources, now only get it from Fox News, as liberals get theirs from MSNBC!   The results, morons on the left and right. 

The deep state is not defeated, nowhere close to being defeated, and Donald Trump's presidency is still on the brink of disaster.  Much of the blame goes to Republicans- RINO's who wanted Hillary in the first place.  Some goes to Trump's EGO, which, as God tells us, can be our undoing.

Modern Romans (Prelim 1975)01Donald Trump is NOT a Christian, but he is a friend to the Christians, as King Nebuchadnezzar was to the Jews. (Read the Book of Daniel sometimes - it will truly enlighten you!).  Christians are right to understand that God put Trump in office to give this nation a few more years.  Christians are wrong to worship Trump as some sort of Christian Holy Man.... He is not.

The Bible Tells us that The United States and Western Europe is going to collapse and be enslaved by a revived Holy Roman Empire ( read:  The Number “13” and the United States! We are lost Israel! and America in Biblical Prophecy).  This IS GOING TO HAPPEN.  Trump, Like Ronald Reagan was put in office against all odds by God to protect His people from slavery to communism.  Though delayed, God says eventually we will fall, because of our sins.  We have become a lawless nation, that has turned our backs on God.  There is still enough God fearing Americans praying for this nation to keep us from falling now.  Let's continue to pray for this nation, for Donald Trump and start reading God's word, not a bunch of nonsense!


What Day did Jesus Die?

Passover

By Bob Barney

During this Passover season, many Christians who understand that Passover and not Easter are what Christ and the early Church of God observed. Today, thousands of Jews and Sabbath keeping Christians still observe the Passover in the spring. Everyone knows, Jesus kept the Passover, from the time of His youth. Luke records:

His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast (Luke 2:41-42).
The Apostle Paul also understood that that Jesus was a symbolic replacement for the Passover lamb that the Jewish people used. He also taught that Christians should still continue to observe Passover:
Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (1 Corinthians 5:7-8).

But how were Christians to do this?

The real Passover ends tonight, as others start to celebrate it on the 20th

Bob Barney
    Tonight marks the end of Passover, the seven days of unleavened bread that God told us to Feastofthelord observe as an everlasting memorial where nobody is supposed to eat anything that contains yeast. Yeast, or leaven, symbolizes sin as unleavened symbolizes God's sinless nature. The Bible only has one definition of sin that most just don't like to know. "Sin IS the transgression of the Law." If the Law has been "done away with" then there is no sin! We are instructed to follow the Biblical rather than our pagan holidays in order to understand just how we are supposed to live in our present moral lives. God's true holidays paint a picture of the perfect world that is coming with Jesus when he returns to earth. No, he will not be following Easter, but he will be commanding all of us to observe the holidays set forth by Him in the Bible.

Most of the world, including Jews, Messianic Jews and seventh-day Christians observe Tonight as the start of Passover, as they follow a lunar, Babylonian inspired calendar. So for those observers... Happy Passover!

Tomorrow is yet another holiday for God's church, it is called The Feast of Unleavened Bread! Then afterwards comes the last spring Holy Day called FIRST FRUITS.  That's after the seven  days, we call Passover week Starting the day AFTER Passover week on First Fruits, we are to begin counting 50 days to the next big holiday in God's seasonal plan called PENTECOST. On Pentecost, two major events happened. The first was it was on Pentecost that Moses received the TEN COMMANDMENTS from Jesus (The God of the Old Testament) and second, it is the holiday that the New Testament church received the Holy Spirit! Now can you understand better why both events happened on this day? It is because God's Law is still in force today, but in the New Testament, the Law has moved from stone, to our hearts and minds by the power of the Spirit!

When we follow God's seasonal holidays, God's plan becomes simple to see.


Tonight Starts Passover

Passover begins at Sundown Tonight 
Passover1

By Bob Barney- The Plain Truth

Almost nobody knows the truth about God's Calendar, the dates of Passover, or even when the day begins.  This ignorance is based on the fact that almost all Sabbath Keeping Churches (Jewish or Christians) accept the modern Jewish Calendar, which is based on the phases of the moon, rather than the Bible based calendar based solely on the Sun!  In a nutshell, the real Calendar given to Moses was SOLAR based on the equinox. Moses was raised as an Egyptian, who also followed the SOLAR and not a Lunar-Solar Year that pagan follows.  Egypt had long realized that the ancient lunar year was wrong. The lunar year is only 354 day long. A full 11 days short of the solar year.  If you are nomadic shepherds, this fact isn't as important, as it is to farmers who must plant their crops on precise dates! The Hebrew Calendar given to Moses by God was the same as the Egyptian, but starting with a different month. The year started on the spring equinox (March 20-21) instead of the summer solstice (The Egyptian new year about June 21). The Bible shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that God's calendar only has 12--- 30-day months (that's only 360 days, the true year BEFORE the Flood of Noah, when by the way, the moon took a full 30 days to circle the earth instead of the 29 days now.  There was a time when the solar and lunar calendar matched - BEFORE THE FLOOD!) and that 5 1/4 days of each year are simply NOT COUNTED! This is how the Egyptians did it too! They had 12--- 30-day months and 5 to 6 extra non-counted days each year. The new year was the only thing "fixed". In Moses' calendar that "fix date" is the spring equinox to make sure Passover always fell on the same solar day! Proof of a 12 month 30 day month year? Revelation says that 1260 days ARE 3-1/2 years OR 42 months! Do the math! It is PLAIN and simple. The Bible answers all of it's own mysteries. Proof that Jesus did not follow the Jewish Calendar? His Passover was 1 Day BEFORE the Jewish Passover! Nobody ever notices that fact.....

So Why Does Passover Fall at Sundown, if the day begins at sunrise?   The answer is simple.  We follow a day that starts at midnight, right?  Then why does Christmas begin on the evening of December 24?  And Why doesn't actual Christmas day begin at midnight, but rather the following morning?   For the same reason, Passover begins at the beginning of the nighttime portion of of the 14th Day of Nissan.  The 15th Day begins the next morning, when Passover Eve ends....(Exodus 12:8-10).   The noted CATHOLIC turned Adventist Scholar realized this same truth. Samuele Bacchiocchi, Ph. D., Andrews University, wrote: 

"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).
 
SabbathRessurection01"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. 
 
"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"
 
Passover-2Enough of the boring proof.  GOD IS PERFECT, His Laws are Perfect. His creation is perfect, and HIS CALENDAR is perfect!   It is man that is imperfect!  His laws, religion, calendars and ways are always imperfect.  When you see perfection you see the hand of God Almighty. When you see imperfection, you see the handy work of man!
 
Happy Passover

Behind the Green New Deal: An elite war on the working class

image from thenypost.files.wordpress.comThe "New" Green Deal isn't new at all, and it is not a deal!   It is communism, that has failed in every place it was ever tried.  The lie about "global warming" just adds to the scam being perpetrated on the left in an effort to rob you of your God granted rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  The left want you to become their slaves, just as the Russians and Chinese (their heroes) enslaved the working masses in their nation.

The communist in France tried this new deal, and it has led to violence for months now, and if the Democrats had their way, the streets of France would be found in American cities, giving them the excuse to declare Marshall Law, and enslave all Americans.

Tuesday’s 57-0 Senate vote against the Green New Deal, with 43 Democrats voting “present,” shows how Republicans can win on this nutty issue. But their attacks haven’t quite yet hit the bull’s-eye.

At the heart of the GND is a plan to outlaw hydrocarbon energy and produce all electricity from wind, solar and other renewables. This isn’t just wildly impractical. It would deliver a crippling blow to the economy. Coal, oil and gas left in the ground are jobs and income buried forever, causing a permanent contraction in the productive capacity of the economy. The GND would thus be a declaration of war on blue-collar America, imperiling the Trump recovery and its half a million new manufacturing jobs.

Republicans have decried the GND as “socialist.” But whatever its real-world outcomes, and they were horrendous, at least the old socialism in theory sought to advance the economic interests of the working class. The GND does the opposite.   MORE


FDR and Stalin, the History is conveniently overlooked!

By Bob Barney

1

an ignored Winston Churchill was amazed by the love affair between FDR and Stalin. (Stock Photo)

  In her book,  "Roosevelt and Stalin", Susan Butler tells the story of how the leader of the capitalist world and the leader of the Communist world became more than allies of convenience during World War II. They shared the same outlook for the postwar world, and formed an uneasy yet deep friendship, shaping the global  stage from the war to the decades leading up to and into the new century. The book makes clear that Roosevelt worked hard to win Stalin over, by always holding out the promise that Roosevelt’s own ideas were the best hope for the future peace and security of Russia. Stalin, however, was initially unconvinced that Roosevelt’s planned world organization, even with police powers, would be strong enough to keep Germany from starting a new war. 

Wow!   You don't see to many people talking about that do you?  The democrat icon Franklin Roosevelt met with, worked with and even helped one of the biggest butchers of all time stay in power.  It could be said that because America helped to save the USSR from Germany, FDR also helped Stalin murder tens of millions of people, and keep eastern Europe in chains and slavery for 50 years!  The story gets even worse.

Another book, "Roosevelt and Stalin: Portrait of a Partnership" describes the friendship that developed between the two men, and history shows that the friendship bothered our true ally Winston Churchill!  For one thing, Roosevelt pushed for the US to recognize the Soviet Union well before Pearl Harbor, despite the pesky matter of communists despising capitalists and vice versa. And he  supported US help for Russia when “most Americans still thought of Europe’s problems as being as far away as the moon.” The two men bonded by making fun of an annoyed Churchill, and Stalin even teases FDR by acting offended to learn he’s called “Uncle Joe” behind the scenes!  How's that for dissing your allies?

You won't hear anything about this fact of history because:

1 Our modern educational system won't allow such news to fly.  They have dumbed down American children for at least 50 years now.

2 The hate Trump media doesn't want you to know the plain truth about American history, if that history doesn't fit its narrative

3 The DEEP STATE is at war with ordinary Americans, trying to take away our liberties at every chance they can

4 Big Business, Big Politics, Big Banksters and Big Government want to enslave the American worker and force them to work for "Mexican" wages--- maybe even 'Chinese" wages, and that is the Plain Truth!

Since the end of the Cold War there has been considerable reviewing of President Roosevelt’s policies toward the Soviet Union. Most notable has been the essay of Professor Arthur Schlesinger Jr., who has argued that the 1989 counter-revolution in Central Europe vindicates President Roosevelt’s wartime diplomacy, which, he says, had been criticized for its “naiveté” about Stalin. 

Wait, did you read that?c Professor Arthur Schlesinger Jr., says FDR was “naiveté” about Stalin!   Wow, yet we are to believe that Donald Trump deserves to be impeached!

Wake up America. Your media, your government, the globalist, and your police state hates you!  


Happy New Year! Yes March 20th is God's New Year!

New year

By: Bob Barney

No, I haven't lost my calendar and I do know what day this is on the Roman calendar that we follow. Many, if not most do not know it, but today is the beginning of the new year in God's calendar. The year starts in the spring and is comprised up of 12 30 day months. Almost no one understands this fact. The Jewish calendar for example follows a lunar/solar year of only 354 days per year. Every three years they add a 13th month. Sounds nice, but it is not Biblical. They also start their day in the evening. They got this idea of evening days while in Babylon during their captivity, just like our day starts at midnight. We get this day from the pagan Romans. God's day starts in the morning dawn. The easy proof to that is in the first chapter of Genesis. The first day came, then evening, then morning which is called the end of the first day, the second was starting.

Just a note:  The United States, many of the peoples of Western Europe, and Canada and Australia are made up of the peoples of ancient Israel.  The "Lost Ten Tribes."   Many do not know that the Jews are not Israel!  Jews are one tribe, and their nation is called Judah!   Look it up for yourselves.  Every prophecy in the Bible the mentions ISRAEL, is not one concerning the Jewish people!  Those prophecies were meant for our Nation!  God does watch over us, because of a promise He gave to Abraham and Jacob...   It has NOTHING to do with our Godliness- it has to do with a promise made 3,000 years ago..   Read:   The Number “13” and the United States! We are lost Israel!

On a Sunday morning at Beth Israel Worship Center in Wayne, N.J., a bearded pastor named Jonathan Cahn stood on an elevated platform, gazing over a full house. Stage lights shifted from blue to white as the backing band played a drifting melody. Two men hoisted curled rams’ horns and let out long blasts.

“Some of you have been saying you want to live in biblical times,” Mr. Cahn said, pacing behind a lectern. Then he spread his hands wide. “Well, you are.”

Sitting at the end of a sleepy drive an hour from Manhattan, Beth Israel may look like any common suburban church. But the center has a highly unusual draw. Every weekend, some 1,000 congregants gather for the idiosyncratic teachings of the church’s celebrity pastor, an entrepreneurial doomsday prophet who claims that President Trump’s rise to power was foretold in the Bible.

Mr. Cahn is tapping into a belief more popular than may appear.

A recent Fox News poll found one in four Americans believe “God wanted Donald Trump to become president.” Celebrities like the televangelist Paula White and Franklin Graham have boosted the idea. The president’s own press secretary suggested as much in a January interview. And on the opening day of the Conservative Political Action Conference this month, the millionaire businessman Michael Lindell took to the stage and declared President Trump “chosen by God.”

My View- Gun Control Laws Kill

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

By Bob Barney

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

 

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

We shouldn't. We need to see the plain truth that gun laws are the number one reason why we have so many gun deaths. These laws have made all of us, including our children less safe. When we are disarmed, we become victims of aggressors. Our politicians know this, that's why they are protected by a long line of guns! What they don't tell you is that they don't give a damn about you, or your loved ones. Many hope for you to be slaughtered by guns because they can gain even more power over you!

So it's time to face reality and repeal these laws – every single one of them!

In fact, I contend that nobody should need to have concealed carry permits!

By the way, read our article that Police Officers Three Times More Likely to Murder Than Concealed Carry Permit Holders.



Criminals and assassins don't obey laws. Gun laws are useless because any criminal knows that legal guns that can be traced; they buy them in the underworld or simply steal them.

Therefore, gun-control laws don't apply to criminals or stop gun violence. They simply make it much harder for innocent people to defend themselves. And the crooks know this all too well. They actively seek out gun free zones to do their killing. The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) recently released a report that indicates that since January of 2009 to July 2014 92% of all mass shootings in the US occurred in gun-free zones.

Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in the past, by the way. Despite the impression given by the media, In the high point for mass killings in the U.S. was 1929, according to criminologist Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections. Incidents of mass murder in the U.S. declined from 42 in the 1990s to 26 in the first decade of this century. The chances of being killed in a mass shooting are about what they are for being struck by lightning. Until the Newtown horror, the three worst K–12 school shootings ever had taken place in either Britain or Germany.

Harry Brown, a libertarian posed these facts:

Stripping Away your Safety

Let's take a brief look at how the various kinds of gun-control laws make you more vulnerable.

Waiting periods: A waiting period means that a woman being stalked will have to remain defenseless for a few extra days. Will her stalker refrain from assaulting her until the waiting period is over?

Safety locks: Although safety locks might prevent a child from accidentally firing a gun, they also can slow you down when you need a gun in a hurry to defend yourself. Imagine a woman attacked by a rapist in a parking lot. Will she be grateful for the time it takes to unlock her gun? And, of course, if her adversary is carrying a gun, it won't have a safety lock.

Registration of handguns: What would this achieve? Nothing positive. Evil-doers won't register their guns; only law-abiding citizens will. And once your gun is registered, you'll have to be afraid that some future President whose heart isn't pure will use that registration to confiscate your only means of defense against armed criminals.

Licensing of guns or gun-owners: Since criminals won't acquire them, gun licenses won't help find the perpetrator of a violent crime. They are simply a gratuitous invasion of your privacy and that of other innocent citizens.

Background checks for purchasers: No one wanted by law-enforcement agencies is going to buy a gun in a way that requires a background check. He'll get his gun from another criminal or steal it. So the only achievement of a background check is your inconvenience.

But don't background checks catch people with criminal records?

If someone is wanted by the police, he certainly isn't going to undergo a background check. On the other hand, if the gun-buyer is an ex-convict who has paid his debt to society, he should have the right to defend himself from predators -- just as you or I do. Or should his criminal record also prohibit him from buying food or clothing?

Require guns to be locked up: If the law requires guns to be kept out of reach of children, how will the law be enforced? Will the police invade your house periodically to verify that your guns are in safe places? If not, what's the point of the law? If yes, this is another gratuitous invasion of your privacy.

Ban some types of guns: At first glance it might seem reasonable to ban such things as assault weapons or mortars. After all, _you_ don't need such a weapon.

But some people do.

During most riots, the police have been outnumbered and have intentionally stayed clear of gangs that were looting and vandalizing. Suppose your life savings are invested in a store the gangs are about to loot. And suppose you have little or no insurance because your store is in a poor and dangerous section of town. How will you defend the store against the looters? With a knife? With a handgun against a dozen attackers? Or with an assault weapon?

If you prevent innocent citizens from acquiring assault weapons, criminal gangs will still have them -- even if they have to smuggle them into America from thousands of miles away. So why pass laws that disarm only the innocent?

You might be able to imagine the perfect law that allows just the right people to own just the right types of guns, while prohibiting other people from owning inappropriate firearms. But remember, you're only imagining such a law; it will never be a reality. Once the issue is turned over to the politicians, it will be decided by whoever has the most political influence -- and that will never be you or I.

A Sane Crime Policy

The only effective crime policy is to have no laws regulating the ownership of guns, but to prosecute anyone who intrudes on the person or property of another -- with or without a gun.

You really have only two choices. Either:

* Politicians will decide what you can own -- and they will never stop their prohibitions at the point you believe best.

* Or people will decide for themselves what they can own.

Any apparent middle ground between the two actually grants the politicians the power to choose for you.

And all such choices will be made by whoever has the most political influence. So attempts to limit gun ownership will do more to promote the political interests of well-connected people than to reduce crime.

A Safe Society

Disarmed citizens encourage crime and violence.

Armed citizens encourage criminals to find a safer line of work.

The National Rifle Association and Republican politicians have recently urged that today's 20,000 gun-control laws be enforced -- no matter how bad those laws.

Libertarians easily see the folly in this. Libertarians know that those laws are, at best, useless -- and, at worst, highly dangerous. Libertarians want all the counter-productive gun laws to be repealed immediately.

This year there will be 2,000 Libertarians running for federal, state, and local offices -- all the way from President of the United States to municipal offices. All of them support your right to defend yourself -- without qualification.

They provide the one avenue by which you can register your unqualified disapproval for today's gun-control climate.

For safety sake, we must repeal all the gun laws.

--- Harry Browne is running for President of the United States as a Libertarian candidate. More of his articles can be found at www.HarryBrowne.org.

The answer is not gun laws. The answer is that you live in the same world that your politicians and leaders live in – one of protection by armed people!

I ask that you all demand that the same protection awarded to our leaders, are awarded to us! ARM THE AMERICAN CITIZEN! Allow anyone without a criminal record, or one found BY A COURT OF LAW to be mentally unstable to carry guns everywhere at any time.

Liberals claim that we don't want to be taken back to the violent days of the “wild west.” REALLY? How many murders do you suppose these old western towns saw a year? Let's say the bloodiest, gun-slingingest of the famous cattle towns with the cowboys doing quick-draws at high noon every other day. A hundred? More? How about five? That was the most murders any old-west town saw in any one year. Ever. Most towns averaged about 1.5 murders a year, and not all of those were shooting. You were way more likely to be murdered in Baltimore in 2008 than you were in Tombstone in 1881, the year of the famous gunfight at the OK Corral (body count: three) and the town's most violent year ever.

No, the facts are that it was far safer to be in the “wild west” against indians (the muslim-like terrorist of the day) and crazed gunmen like Jesse James, than you are today in any US city!

WAKE UP AMERICA- Learn The Plain Truth- You have been lied to! You have been lied to about God, the true religion of Christ, the reason why America was really blessed, and why we are now under a curse, and about climate change and gun control! If you do not start a personal study of everything you think you know, you will continue to be a victim of your evil leaders! Require them to disarm their security officers! Require Obama to disarm the secret service! If he believes that armed people don't protect you, then let him follow by example!

 


The Plain Truth about The Pill

Turns out that probably the greatest scandal has been what the birth control pill has done to women.

1

On television, radio and in print, we are bombarded with "the war on women," mainly by liberals who have, for the most part, waged this war themselves through lies, misconceptions and junk medicine.  There has been no better example of this than the birth control pill. Touted by "experts" everywhere as the single most important discovery in history that has led to total freedom for women, so they can have lives away from the family and control their reproductive "health."  The Plain Truth is that the entire history of the pill has killed more women, then any other single cause!  

While many millions of women take the Pill, a significant percent are reporting devastating impacts on their emotional well-being, as well as their physical health.  Depression is listed as a side-effect in the small print warnings leaflet included in every packet, along with symptoms such as blood clotting, weight gain, pain and decreased libido — which  doctors are failing to make women aware of the risks.  They believe medics are worried about a spike in unwanted pregnancies if women’s trust in the Pill is shaken.

The contraceptive pill contains artificial versions of female hormones that override the monthly reproductive cycle. Traditionally, women have been advised to take it every day for three weeks, followed by a week’s break. Since the 60s, the contraceptive pill has promised us greater control over our bodies and fertility, but this “freedom” may come at an enormous cost to a woman’s health. Unfortunately, several generations of women have been used as guinea pigs, and many of the dangers of birth control pills are only just coming to light.

birth control pill dangers are particularly concerning, given that an estimated 100 million+ women worldwide are currently using oral contraceptives yet are largely unaware that it can pose many health risks because it upsets natural hormone balance.

2And the harmful effects of birth control pills go beyond whether birth control pills and strokes or cancer. Also concerning is the pill’s increasing use to treat issues like acne or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, without addressing the cause of these problems (such as food intolerances, high sugar levels, lack of sleep and stress).

Other problems often never mentioned:

Lower Thyroid Hormones

Lower Testosterone (result no sex drive)

Shutdown Natural Hormone Production

Reduced Serotonin and Melatonin (essential for healthy sleep) and Nutrient Deficiencies. Women on the pill use up more of their nutrients when their liver is forced to metabolize these synthetic hormones while trying to filter excess estrogen from your body. This could cause a chronic drop in vitamins levels C and E as well as B complex vitamins including B1, B2, B5, B6, B9 (folate), B12.

A drop in essential minerals including selenium, zinc, and magnesium can also occur. Meanwhile, copper levels may become elevated, potentially increasing catecholamines (hormones produced by the adrenal glands), which can cause edginess and a feeling of being over-stimulated (wired).

Trigger PCOS: Some integrative practitioners believe that the hormone disorder, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can be triggered by the use of birth control pills. This is because excess insulin and inflammation are known triggers of PCOS, and both of these states can be caused by being on the contraceptive pill.

Depression and Anxiety and Weight gain

Breast Cancer (actually many types of cancer)

The figures are startling. Research from the Women’s Lifestyle and Health Study in Sweden and Norway has shown that the risk of breast cancer in women taking the contraceptive pill rose by:

– 26% in women who had used the pill but had ceased to take it.

– 58% in women still using the pill compared with never-users.

– 144% in women aged 45 or over who were still using the Pill.

According to the National Cancer Institute, BCP’s may also increase the risk of benign liver lumps which have the potential to turn into cancer. Plus women on BCPs are also at a higher risk of developing cervical cancer. The good news? The risk lessens after 10 years of no longer taking the pill.

Gut Issues and Candida (yeast infection) overgrowth: According to results of the Harvard Nurses Health study, women who take the birth control pill for more than five years have a 3x chance of developing the autoimmune inflammatory bowel condition, Crohn’s disease.Excess hormones from the birth control pill can adversely affect healthy gut bacteria. For tips on how to improve your gut bacteria and health, read my post on How Your Digestion Impacts Your Hormone Imbalance and Weight Gain.

The price of "freedom" for women on the pill, is a life filled with pain, health issues and cancer. Too many of us trust modern medicine, and that is often dangerous, because often modern medicine is a businesses enterprise that puts profits over protection.

BIG TECH MERGING WITH BIG BROTHER?

By Bob Barney

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

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

Trump Meets Kim Again - No Peace in Sight as we predicted

By Bob Barney

First published in Feb 2018 - repeating after today's news:

Updated: Since writing this article in February of this year, Trump met with Kim Jung Un for a second time.  Again, Trump was forced to walk away without a deal. Korea realizes that because the Democrats took the House, they may be able to outlast Trump.  Hopefully Trump will make a deal of the century;  I for one am routing on that scenario and hope to be wrong, but the following was my concern, and still maybe the end result still... But recent events in the past week is proving my belief. THERE IS NO DEAL

 By Bob Barney-ThePlainTruth.Com

If the Korean Nations unite, it will be under North Korean rulership!  Donald Trump was right in bullying Korea into talking, but I am afraid the Deep Staters surrounding him have led him astray in believing that a unification of Korea can happen.    Will we learn from history? Will we listen to the warnings from our God?
   Peace 

Will you and every other American decide whether to listen to our God and obey, or continue down the road to globalization, world government  and total destruction of our way of life. The problem is not new. This has all happened before--over and over again, but we are a stubborn people who refuse to learn from our past. In the Bible, God warns us against false peace promises that weak leaders promise, but we are warned not to heed. In Jeremiah 6:9-14, God says this:
    "This is what the Lord GOD (Jesus) Almighty has said: Everything will be taken from the rest of Israel as the last grapes are taken from the vine; let your hand be turned to the small branches, like one pulling off grapes. To whom am I to give word, witnessing so that they may take note? see, their ears are stopped, and they are not able to give attention: see, the word of the Lord has been a cause of shame to them, they have no delight in it.  For this reason I am full of the wrath of the Lord, I am tired of keeping it in: may it be let loose on the children in the street, and on the band of the young men together: for even the husband with his wife will be taken, the old man with him who is full of days.  And their houses will be handed over to others, their fields and their wives together: for my hand will be stretched out against the people of the land, says the Lord.   For from the least of them even to the greatest, everyone is given up to getting money; from the prophet even to the priest, everyone is working deceit. And they have made little of the wounds of my people, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace."

     Another translation says: "'Everything is all right! Everything is all right!' But it's not all right. And everything is NOT all right indeed! If we don't change things soon, we will end up as slaves to an end time beast called the King of the North, in the bible, and a false prophet, who I believe will be a Pope. The Bible is quite clear that the Holy Roman Empire is the 4th and last beast-type regime that will rule the earth. In Revelation, there are seven resurrections of that empire, and the 7th may be soon upon us. God help us if it is. There is no rapture, we all go into the tribulation and we all must endure to the end, or be martyred for Christ. This is The Plain Truth--as sobering as it is. PRAY we are not living in these times.

Other Bible Quotes: 

Jer 11:  They offer superficial treatments for my people's mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace.

Ezekiel 13:10:  This will happen because these evil prophets deceive my people by saying, 'All is peaceful' when there is no peace at all! It's as if the people have built a flimsy wall, and these prophets are trying to reinforce it by covering it with whitewash!

We need to be aware of God's word, and the awful predictions that will be coming true, including the end of The USA, United Kingdom and other Western Nations.   We need to heed the warning from God, and STOP OUR GLOBALISM, or we will end up fulfilling prophecy in OUR lifetime...   We can delay it, if we as a nation heed God's words.....

The rush to peace at any price is pushing the world closer to that great middle eastern war which Revelation 9 tells us will kill up to a BILLION people.   I can't even fathom killing on such a degree.  It's seems impossible, but God's word says it is coming to past, and the clowns in this White House are making this disaster more real every day!  If you don't read the Bible, you can not understand what is happening today!  Get prepared, WAR is COMING- NOT PEACE!


Like Most Billionaires Warren Buffet loses Money under Republican Presidents - Why he hates Trump

Bob Barney

Scan 1  Rich people are almost always liberal Democrats.  That's a fact.  No, they don't have genuine feelings of altruism, instead they realize that Democrats make rich people richer, and poor people poorer.  It's the Plain Truth!  Warren Buffett on Saturday appeared to fault U.S. President Donald Trump for taking too much credit for the nation's economic growth, while acknowledging that market conditions are making it tough for his Berkshire Hathaway Inc to find more big companies to buy.

Buffett lamented these states of affairs in his widely read annual letter to Berkshire shareholders.

'It is beyond arrogance for American businesses or individuals to boast that they have "done it alone",' Buffett wrote.

Buffett also made a possible oblique criticism of Trump's bragging about U.S. economic performance, including relative to other countries such as China, where Berkshire invests in electric car maker BYD Co.

Yes, it seems that Trump's economy is lifting up middle and poorer class Americans at the expense of people like Buffet!  It's about time we have a president for America! 


Are Adam and Eve Real? Provable by Science?

By Bob Barney

Adam-scienceScientists in the Switzerland and the United States made some astonishing and profound discoveries in 2018, and I bet most of my readers haven't heard a thing about it. While the Fake News Media as published story after story about the fraudulent theory of man-made global warming (a complete socialist/communist lie), few have mentioned that scientist have now proven as fact, through DNA testing and other methods that all human beings on earth (some 7 billion) are related to THE SAME COMMON MOTHER AND FATHER ANCESTOR! Yes, you read that correctly, all humans alive today are the offspring of a common father and mother – an Adam and Eve – who walked the planet, they say, 100,000 to 200,000 years ago!

What's more, the same is true of nine out of every 10 animal species, meaning that nearly all of Earth’s creatures living today sprang into being recently from some seminal, Big Bang-like event. You know like Genesis chapter 1! Mark Stoeckle at Rockefeller University and David Thaler at the University of Basel reached this striking conclusion after analyzing the DNA “bar codes” of five million animals from 100,000 different species. The bar codes are snippets of DNA that reside outside the nuclei of living cells – so-called mitochondrial DNA, which mothers pass down from generation to generation.

Why you will not read much about this discovery is simple. Scientists, and world global leaders do not want you to know that evolution is a fraud, a scheme to convince you that the Bible is not the world of God, and for that matter, God doesn't even exist! The Plain Truth is that God does exist, science proves it, and The Bible is the very word of God, and history of it's prophecies that have come true proves that!

Stoeckle and Thaler concluded that ninety percent of all animal species alive today come from parents that all began giving birth at roughly the same time. In Plain English, all were created at one time instantly! They know this because with each reproduction, errors creep into the bar code of DNA, as they do when you repeatedly photocopy a document. By measuring the accumulated errors – the blurriness or “diversity” among the bar codes – scientists are able to infer the passage of time.

This conclusion is very surprising,” Thaler avers, “and I fought against it as hard as I could.”

He fought against the very notion of an instant creation for obvious reasons. He is an evolutionist, and he did not want to believe that evolution cannot explain his findings. I suggest the Bible does! That said, Stoeckle and Thaler’s study does line up with the Bible in at least two notable ways. First, it affirms that we and our fellow creatures on Earth arose from a recent and profound creation event, orchestrated by some unknown mechanism. And second, the DNA bar codes reveal that species are quantized. Instead of there being a continuum of animal varieties, as one might expect from millions of years of gradual evolution, creatures fall into very distinct, widely separated populations – what the Bible describes as “kinds,” from the Hebrew word min.

Darwin struggled to understand the absence of intermediates and his questions remain fruitful [to this day],” says Thaler. What the new study discovered, he explains, is that “If individuals are stars, then species are galaxies. They are compact clusters in the vastness of empty sequence space.”

Again, from My Plain Truth Red Letter Bible: Where Jesus' Words are in RED- EVEN in the Old Testament!

Genesis 1 or "In the beginning of"1

A general note, before understanding the meaning of Genesis, I recommend that the reader reads the first chapter of the book of John. Do so now, because that chapter actually takes place before Genesis! It explains just who God is, that God (Elohim/Theos) is both the being known as THE FATHER, known as GOD, and of the WORD or LOGOS who became Jesus Christ. The TWO ARE ONE GOD! Please read John chapter one before reading Genesis.

The Hebrew name for the Book of Genesis is Bereishit. It may be translated as the phrase "In the beginning of". Genesis is the GREEK word with the same meaning. Genesis

(GreekΓένεσις, "birth", "origin") or Bereshit (Hebrew:בְּרֵאשִׁית, "in the beginning") is the first book

of the Bible used by Judaism and Christianity, and the first of five books of the Pentateuch or Torah. It contains biblical stories from the creation of the world to the descent of the children of Israel into Egypt, and some of the best-known biblical stories, including Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah's Ark, the Tower of Babel, and the biblical Patriarchs.

1In the beginning God (Elohim/Theos)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 "American." An American is one person, but The American people means 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) so the reader understands which hebrew/Greek word is being used. 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 at end of chapter... 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 8:22Proverbs 8:23.

2And 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.

3And 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 no 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....

4And God (Elohim/Theos) saw the light, that it was good: and God (Elohim/Theos) divided the light from the darkness.

5And God (Elohim/Theos) called the light Daytime, and the darkness he called Nighttime. And there there was nightime and then morning, the end of the first day.

6And God (Elohim/Theos) 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.

7And God (Elohim/Theos) 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)

8And God (Elohim/Theos) called the sky Heaven. And there was nightime 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.

9And God (Elohim/Theos) 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.

10And God (Elohim/Theos) called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God (Elohim/Theos) saw that it was good.

11And God (Elohim/Theos) 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.

12And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God (Elohim/Theos) saw that it was good.

13And there there was nightime and then morning, the end of the third day.

14And God (Elohim/Theos) 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:

15and let them be for lights in the sky of heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16And God (Elohim/Theos) 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!

17And God (Elohim/Theos) set them in heaven (the universe) above to give light upon the earth,

18and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God (Elohim/Theos) saw that it was good.

19And there there was nightime and then morning, and day four ended.

20And God (Elohim/Theos) said, Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21And God(Elohim/Theos) created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God (Elohim/Theos)saw that it was good.

22And God (Elohim/Theos) blessed them, saying,Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.

23And there there was nightime and then morning, the end of the fifth day.

24And God (Elohim/Theos) said, Let the earth bring forth living animals after their kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their 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.

25And God (Elohim/Theos) 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.

26And God (Elohim/Theos) 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 (the power of God). 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)

27And God (Elohim/Theos) 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)

28And God (Elohim/Theos) 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!

29And God (Elohim/Theos) 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.

30and 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.

31And God (Elohim/Theos) saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there there was nightime 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.


Russia IS NOT the THREAT people fear!

Editor's Note: This article was first published in January 2008 and explains how we can understand future events if we know who is who in the Bible. God knew the future of the world when the Bible prophecies were written, and we can understand world events and the coming future when we understand what nations are mentioned in the Bible.

Now with the Trump- so-called-Russian problem- it is time to remember again - RUSSIA IS NOT THE THREAT TO AMERICA- according to the Bible!

by Robert R. Barney

TamsterRussia is rearing it's ugly head. Russia is the Gog and MaGog in your Bible and will play a role in the future, but Russia is never going to become the threat to the world that many fear. Both the King of the North and the King of the South found in Daniel are the key to understanding future world events. This is not to say that Russia or China or even other nations will not go to war and be a menace to the world, but in the total scheme of things, we must watch events in Europe, and the Middle East. One man, Herbert W. Armstrong, repeatedly dared to declare—years ahead of the Soviet Union’s fall—that the USSR was not the power to fear. The real power to watch, according to him, would be another force: a ten-nation “United States of Europe” that would form in the years ahead. He said that Russia would remain a thre at to the world—just not in the way most Westerners thought. Russia would combine economically and militarily with China, he predicted, to eventually create a gargantuan new Asian superpower such as the world has never seen.

Today's Plain Truth- Q-Anon

By Bob Barney

I'll admit it, when I was first informed about this guy who called himself, "Q" I had no idea what, who that was.  I try NOT to be uninformed, so we ran a story (republished below) by Jennifer Rae.   Since then I have paid attention to the subject, with the normal skepticism I have with most theories, especially those who can't put their name to it. The claims of Q-Anon make me think of the French self proclaimed psycic Nostradamus, who made all sorts of nonsensical predictions.  He did so by discussing them, so he said, to keep himself from being imprisoned.  Actually he used the style he did because the predictions were so vague, that basically anybody could make them fit into any scenario.  Back in the 70's , Nostradamus was "the thing," and many Christians were duped!   Enter the claims of Q-Anon, who makes Nostradamus' writing biblical!  

I have come to the personal belief that the entire "Q" thing is a hoax, by ANTI-TRUMPERS to make his supporters look like morons like in this Daily Beast article.  That's my opinion, I have some articles today for our readers to become aware of the situation!
