John 1:1 is actually predates Genesis 1:1! John 1:1 explains who God really is that we read about in Genesis. We learn here that Jesus is the WORD or spokesman of the Godhead (Elohim) and that He and the Father make up the Godhead. We learn many things in the Gospel (Good News) about Jesus from the pen of John. We learn that Jesus was the “I AM” of Exodus who spoke to Moses from the burning bush. We learn that the only God that mankind has ever seen is Jesus, and that nobody but he has ever seen the Father God. Without the knowledge of the Good News of John, we can never fully comprehend the Old Testament scripture.. This is why I suggest that the book of John be read BEFORE reading Genesis for the first time. Jamieson writes that John “was the younger of the two sons of Zebedee, a fisherman on the Sea of Galilee, who resided at Bethsaida, where were born Peter and Andrew his brother, and Philip also. His mother's name was Salome, who, though not without her imperfections ( Matthew 20:20-28 the Lord on one of His preaching circuits through Galilee, ministering to His bodily wants; who followed Him to the cross, and bought sweet spices to anoint Him after His burial, but, on bringing them to the grave, on the morning of the First Day of the week, found their loving services gloriously superseded by His resurrection ere they arrived. His father, Zebedee, appears to have been in good circumstances, owning a vessel of his own and having hired servants ( Mark 1:20 Evangelist, whose occupation was that of a fisherman with his father, was beyond doubt a disciple of the Baptist, and one of the two who had the first interview with Jesus. He was called while engaged at his secular occupation ( Matthew 4:21 Matthew 4:22 ( Luke 5:1-11 ( Matthew 10:2 DA COSTA calls him--and he and James his brother were named in the native tongue by Him who knew the heart, "Boanerges," which the Evangelist Mark ( Mark 3:17 doubt from their natural vehemence of character. They and Peter constituted that select triumvirate of whom But the highest honor bestowed on this disciple was his being admitted to the bosom place with his Lord at the table, as "the disciple whom Jesus loved" ( John 13:23 ; 20:2 ; John 21:7 John 20:24 him by the dying Redeemer the care of His mother ( John 19:26 John 19:27 There can be no reasonable doubt that this distinction was due to a sympathy with His own spirit and mind on the part of John which the all-penetrating Eye of their common Master beheld in none of the rest; and although this was probably never seen either in his life or in his ministry by his fellow apostles, it is brought out wonderfully in his writings, which, in Christ-like spirituality, heavenliness, and love, surpass, we may freely say, all the other inspired writings.”
 
As to the date of this Gospel, the arguments for its having been composed before the destruction of Jerusalem (though relied on by some superior critics) are of the slenderest nature; such as the expression in John 5:2 &c.; there being no allusion to Peter's martyrdom as having occurred according to the prediction in John 21:18 to require mention. That it was composed long after the destruction of Jerusalem, and after the decease of all the other apostles, is next to certain, though the precise time cannot be determined. Probably it was before his banishment, however; and if we date it between the years 90 and 94, we shall probably be close to the truth.
John is the oldest surviving member of the twelve and his message is about the Divinity of Christ, his preexistence as THE LORD and the message that the LAW can only be understood with its greatest cornerstone--- LOVE. Love covers sins, and the Law of God is LOVE.
 
John 1
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God (The Father), and the Word was God (Elohim-The God Family).
WORD- from Greek Logos. Jesus or Yahweh, or THE LORD IS GOD, along with the Father! There is not a hint of a trinity here!
 
2 He was with God (The Father) in the beginning.
 
3 All things were made by Him (Jesus- the Word), and Nothing exists that He did not make.
 
4 In Him (Jesus) is life, and the life was the light of mankind.
 
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not suppressed it.
 
6 There was a man sent from God (Elohim-The Family of God) whose name was John (The baptist).
 
7 He came to tell everyone about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony.
 
8 He himself was not that light; no, he came to bear witness concerning the light.
 
9 This was the true light, which gives light to everyone entering the world
 
10 He (Jesus- Yahweh the LORD) was in the world -- the world came to be by Him -- yet the world did not acknowledge Him {as God}.
 
11 He came to His own homeland, yet His own people did not receive him.
 
12 But to as many as did receive Him (Jesus), to those who put their trust in His person and power, He gave the right to become children of God (the Godhead (Theos - or Elohim)),
Theos is the Greek version of Elohim in Hebrew, meaning God or Godhead. Sometimes it pertains in the Gospels to The Father, often it means both Jesus and the Father, as it does here.
 
13 who were born, not of blood, or by physical means, but because of God (Theos).
 
14 The Word became a fleshly human being and dwelt (tabernacled or pitched his tent) among us, and we saw His glory, the glory of the Father's only Son, full of grace and truth.
This is why we observe the Feast of Tabernacles!
 
15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He existed before me.' "
 
16 We have all received one blessing after another. God's grace is not limited.
 
17 For the Law (Torah) was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah.
 
18 No one has ever seen God (The Father); but the only and this unique Son, who is identical with God and is at the Father's side -- He has made Him known.
 Do you see what is being said here by John? This just isn't understand by Christians that not only is Jesus the LORD of the OT, but that he was identical and EQUAL to the Father!

John the Baptist Is Not the Christ

19 So this is John's testimony: when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask John who he was. John gave witness to them.
 
20 He did not try to hide the truth. He spoke to them openly. He said, "I am not the Christ."
 
21 "Then who are you?" they asked him. "Are you Elijah?" "No, I am not," he said. "Are you `The Prophet,' the one we're expecting?" "No," he replied.
The Prophet: that prophet--announced in Deuteronomy 18:15 , &c., about whom they seem not to have been agreed whether he were the same with the Messiah or no.
 
22 So they said to him, "Who are you? -- so that we can give an answer to the people who sent us to ask. What do you have to say about yourself?"
 
23 He answered using the words of Isaiah the prophet. John said, "I'm the messenger who is calling out in the desert, 'Make the way for the LORD (kyrios-Yahweh) straight.' "(Isaiah 40:3)
kyrios- Greek for Yahweh or LORD or JESUS' Prior self!
 
24 Some Pharisees who had been sent
 
25 asked him, "If you are neither the Messiah nor Elijah nor `the prophet,' then why are you immersing people in water?"
 
26 To them John replied, "I am baptizing people in water, but among you is standing one whom you don't know.
 
27 He is the one coming after me -- I'm not good enough even to untie his sandal!"
 
28 This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan River. That was where John was baptizing.

Jesus Is the Lamb of God

29 The next day John saw Jesus (Yeshua-or Joshua) coming toward him. John said, "Look! The Lamb of God! Who takes away the sin of the world!
the Lamb of God
--the one God-ordained, God-gifted sacrificial offering. that taketh away--taketh up and taketh away. The word signifies both, as does the corresponding Hebrew word. Applied to sin, it means to be chargeable with the guilt of it ( Exodus 28:38 , Leviticus 5:1 , Ezekiel 18:20 ), and to bear it away (as often). In the Levitical victims both ideas met, as they do in Christ, the people's guilt being viewed as transferred to them, avenged in their death, and so borne away by them ( Leviticus 4:15 , Leviticus 16:15 Leviticus 16:21 Leviticus 16:22 ; and compare Isaiah 53:6-12 , 2 Corinthians 5:21 ). (Jamieson)
 
30 This is the One I was talking about. I said, 'A Man who comes after me is more important than I am. That's because He existed before I was born.'
 
31 I myself did not recognize Him. But God wants to make it clear to Israel who this person is. That's the reason I came baptizing with water."
 
32 Then John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit (pnuema) coming down from heaven like a dove, and remaining on Him.
Spirit: 
    In the Old Testament the Holy Spirit (Ruwach) it is feminine in form, but is an essence of God and not a God. In the NT, the Spirit has a masculine form, but again is an essence-not a person. God (Jesus and the Father) are made up of Spirit, as man is made up of flesh and blood. The Holy Spirit is  WHAT God is made of and not part of a TRINITY!  As of now, until we are resurrected from the dead, there are only two beings in the Godhead!
 
33 I would not have known Him. But the One who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'You will see the Spirit come down and remain on someone. He is the One who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.'
      Spirit is the “flesh and blood of the Divine ones (angels and the Godhead) but HOLY SPIRIT exclusively is the essence that makes up God- not angels.
 
34 And I have seen and borne witness that this is the Son of God."
 
Jesus begins choosing HIS disciples:
35 The next day, John was again standing with two of his disciples.
 
36 On seeing Jesus walking by, he said, "Look! God's lamb!"
 
37 The two disciples heard him say this. So they followed Jesus.
 
38 Then Jesus turned around and saw them following. He asked, "What do you want?" They said, "Rabbi, where are you staying?" "Rabbi" means Teacher.
 
39 He said to them, "Come and see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and remained with him the rest of the day -- it was about four o'clock in the afternoon.
 
40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
 
41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ or “one who has been anointed.")
 
42 And he brought him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, "You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas" (which is translated, A pebble).
 
43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, "Follow me."
 
44 Philip was from the town of Bethsaida. So were Andrew and Peter.
 
45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the One that Moses wrote about in the Law (Torah). The prophets also wrote about him. He is Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
 
46 "Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?" Nathanael asked. "Come and see," said Philip.
 
47 Jesus saw Nathanael approaching. Here is what Jesus said about him. "He is a true Israelite. There is nothing false in him."
 
48 "How do you know me?" Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, "I saw you while you were still under the fig tree. I saw you there before Philip called you."
 
49 Nathanael said, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!"
 
50 Jesus answered him, "you believe all this just because I told you I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than that!"
 
51 Then he said to the disciples, "What I'm about to tell you is true. You will see heaven open. You will see the angels of God going up and coming down on the Son of Man."
The key to this great saying is Jacob's vision ( Genesis 28:12-22 ), to which the allusion plainly is. To show the patriarch that though alone and friendless on earth his interests were busying all heaven, he was made to see "heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon a" mystic "ladder reaching from heaven to earth." "By and by," says Jesus here, "ye shall see this communication between heaven and earth thrown wide open, and the Son of man the real Ladder of this intercourse."

Hosea - Prophecies for America and Britain TODAY

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

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

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

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

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

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

 The fall of Assyria

 The fall of Alexander

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

 The Pope

 Radiation poisoning

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Study of HOSEA:

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

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

Hosea 4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

END

 

My friends, believe it or not THIS IS the message of Hosea. Hosea is a prophecy for TODAY- for America, the England Commonwealth of Nations, Ireland, France, Denmark and Scandinavia!  It has never been fulfilled.  In part 2 I will show you why with more of Hosea. Chapters 5-7..   In Part 3 8-10, Part 4 11-12. Part 5 Chapter 15.

 

 


The Big Lie- Does he look like he could be bullied?

Once again, we have a color factor in the justice system!  A shooter released on bail???

 

Family of 15-year-old shot during classroom fight say 'sweet and caring child' fighting

Zacchaeus Selby, 15, was shot 'seven or eight times' by Timothy George Simpkins after the pair fought on Wednesday morning at their Texas high school. Selby's family insist he was not a bully, saying he has a 'heart of gold' and was 'bright and respectful'. He remains in intensive care. A teacher who tried to separate the two, Calvin Pettitt, 25, also remained in hospital. Simpkins was released on Thursday on a $75,000 bail and was seen celebrating at home with a party.


Meaning of the Last Great Day

TODAY is the last day of The Feast of tabernacles. Today is the what is called the LAST GREAT DAY. This eight day of the FEAST symbolizes the time after the millennium, when God the Father moves his throne from heaven to earth... Yes, it is in the Bible!!! try reading the 21st chapter of revelation:

All Things Made New
1Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
 
4And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
 
5Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
 
6And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
 
This will be the fulfillment of today's Holy Day.  The Last Great day when God the Father will live with us ON EARTH!

Today is the Last Great Day of the Feast of Tabernacles

By Bob Barney- The Plain Truth

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

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

 

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

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

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

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


Feast of Tabernacles- Day-7. THE REAL JESUS of the BIBLE

His true Identity WILL SHOCK YOU!

By Bob Barney


1I am sure you have heard or perhaps watched shows devoted to so-called "Bible codes". This is where mathematical rabbis find hidden messages in the Bible using computer programs and are making some outstanding claims about these messages. The subject of "Bible codes" IS NOT what today's article is about. Instead of Biblical codes that are almost impossible for anyone in the real world to discover, we are going to set forth on a journey together and discover possibly the strangest and most important Biblical code of all time. Is it possible there could be a "hidden message" right before your very eyes?  You may find this to be one of the most eye opening writings you have ever read about God, the Bible, and Jesus.

If I wrote these words: “The lawn, has long since died” in some foreign language and it was translated into English: “The lawn has died long ago” nobody would see that as much of a problem. Even to the most observant student the missing comma would not be important at all. The reason for this is because it simply isn't needed in the english translation. Now let me throw in a variable. Let's pretend in this make believe foreign language that the “comma” was an important symbol to the writer unlike in English where the comma is only used in the formation of sentence structure. Perhaps to the writer it was a symbol for poison! Then the sentence would be translated, “The lawn was poisoned and died long ago.” The message I am trying to convey is that we may have right in front of our eyes, clues (symbols) to hidden messages that God placed in the Bible long ago. Would you be shocked to know there are actual symbols in the original writings of the Bible that have not been translated at all and therefore are not included in the translations of scripture we read every day?   We are talking about symbols that have such significant meaning that they communicate the TRUE identity of God! It is clear to me that to acknowledge these symbols would actually change everyone's perspective not only of God and the Bible, but man's role in understanding His mind and the things He deems are important for us to know about Him.

I’m Going to Die- You’re Going to Die -updated

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

From June 2019

By Bob Barney

Bible-death

     I am turning 66 in a few months, and honestly the prospect of dying in the next 10-15 years is sobering.  Most of us are living a bit longer than several generations ago, but most die still in their seventies.   The idea that most of your life is behind you is a sobering fact, and believe it or not, The Holy Bible is not as comforting on the subject as many believe, or better yet, led to believe by their church.

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

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

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

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

Peter on the Day of Pentecost said the same of King David. “Friends let me speak plainly to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb and dead body is with us to this day…For David did not ascend into the heavens…"(Acts 2:29, 34).  Heaven’s!  That’s all three mentioned in the Bible.

     3-heavensThe first heaven is the layer of air around the earth. That’s the “heaven” that Elijah was taken up to (in a whirlwind!).  You are in the first heaven every time you fly in a plane!

     The second heaven is the universe, where the planets and stars are located. Like the first heaven we can plainly see them with our eyes.  Our astronauts have traveled into the second heaven.

     The third heaven is where God lives. It cannot be seen by the human eye.  The apostle Paul knew a man who saw the third heaven in what was most likely a vision or dream. He writes,I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in his body or out of his body I don't know– Only God knows. What I know is that this man–whether in the body or apart from the body (I do not know but God knows)–was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except my weaknesses” (2 Corinthians 12:2-5).

This third heaven is the heaven we think about when we are told that our loved one is in heaven. The sad truth is that they are not. Many Christians think of the soul as an immortal entity within us that goes on living after death. This is not what the Bible says, and I for one don't want to accept this fact, but I have to if I believe God! The Bible plainly says, “And the LORD (Who is Jesus) God formed man from the earth's dirt, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living creature” (Genesis 2:7). The King James wrongly translates the Hebrew “soul.” Read any Bible commentary and you will see that I am correct. God did not put a soul into us, He made us, from the physical elements of the earth – the same way God formed ANIMALS and PLANTS! He breathed His life-giving spirit into the lifeless mortal body—and the result was a living creature- an animal. Man is an animal, just like your dog or that insect you swat and kill. When a person dies, just like in an animal, the reverse takes place. The breath of life departs from the body, and the life of that animal no longer exists. That’s what the Bible says. “The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it” (Ecclesiastes 12:7).

If souls existed as separate entities that lived on after we died, that would mean we have immortality. However, the Bible says human beings do not have immortality. Only God is immortal (see 1 Timothy 6:15, 16). Paul says that the righteous “seek for glory, honor, and immortality” (Romans 2:7). If we had immortal souls, why would the righteous seek after something they already have?

So friends, you can see why I fear my death.

1I fear death because I realize that I am going to sleep, and the control freak that I am can';t accept the fact that I will have no control over anything that happens the second I die. What will happen to my wife, my loved ones, our business that I helped create, our farm -anything! That scares the hell out of me.

Yes, I know many are not worried about dying because they don't understand what death is! The Bible says that death is NOT good, nor a friend to look forward to. Death is the enemy and we should never forget that. 1 Cor 15:26 “The last enemy to be destroyed is death.”

 What the Bible says about death and life after death:

I realize that this will surprise many, but the Bible does promise a life after death to everyone who wants it. It also promises eternal death to those who choose it! Eternal death means what it says. DEAD forever, burned up gone. No suffering in some place called “hell.” That “hell” is a lie that churches has told you. The Bible does not offer an ever burning hell of torment to sinners.

There is an order of when we have the chance to live again. When Christ returns, only true Christians will be resurrected from the dead, to immortal life! We will be in the God family. “For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead that where Christians will rise first” (1 Thessalonians 4:16).

Christ tells us that then (Revelation 20:4-6) "And then I saw thrones to those given authority to judge. And I saw the dead bodies of those who had been slain because of their testimony about Jesus, and because of the word of God. These had had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came back to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.(The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years."

     So, what happens to the rest that do not believe, and are not Christians, or had no chance to learn the way of God? Again, Jesus says through His angel in Revelation 20:11-15 : "Then I saw a great white throne and He who was sitting on it. The earth and the heavens ran from His presence, and there was no place for them to hide. Then I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and the graves gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done.Then death and the graves were thrown into the lake of fire.The lake of fire is the second death.Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire."

The wicked are raised to life in a separate resurrection—the resurrection of condemnation. Jesus said, “Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation” (John 5:28, 29).

The last sensation was we know is the pang of death, the last thought that we have --- the fear that we are falling beneath the power of the grave, but then, imagine, when we arise from the tomb to the shout,

“O Death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?” (1 Corinthians 15:55).

That brings me comfort- in the end, but my death does not. It is the final battle I must defeat--- not I, but Jesus Christ, who has already done this for me- and you! Thank you my heavenly God, both father and Son for the love that Jesus has shown us.

Take the time and Read 1 Corinthians 15- The resurrection chapter that most churches simply will not read to you:

 

From The Plain Truth Bible with study notes:

Chapter 15:

The Resurrection Chapter!

1Friends, I'm making known to you the Good News which I already told you, which you received, and on which your faith is based.

2 In addition, you are saved by this Good News if you hold on to the doctrine I taught you, unless you believed it in vain.

3 I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me -- that Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said.

4 He was buried, and rose from the dead on the third day, as the Scriptures said.

5 He was seen by Peter and then by the twelve apostles.

6 After that, he was seen by more than five hundred of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died by now.

7 Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles.

8 Last of all, I saw him, too, long after the others, as though I had been born at the wrong time.

9 For I am the least of all the apostles, and I am not worthy to be called an apostle after the way I persecuted the church of God.

10 But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me -- and not without results. For I have worked harder than all the other apostles, yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace.

11 So it makes no difference whether I preach or they preach. The important thing is that you believed what we preached to you.

12 But tell me this -- since we preach that Christ rose from the dead, why are some of you saying there will be no resurrection of the dead?

13 For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not risen either.

14 And if Christ was not raised, then all our preaching is in vain, and your trust in God is in vain.

15 And we apostles would all be lying about God, for we have said that God raised Christ from the grave, but that can't be true if there is no resurrection of the dead.

16 Certainly, if the dead don't come back to life, then Christ hasn't come back to life either.

17 If Christ hasn't come back to life, your faith is worthless and sin still has you in its power.

18 In that case, all who have died believing in Christ have perished forever!

19 And if we have hope in Christ only for this life, we are the most miserable people in the world.

Death is a SLEEP:

20 But the fact is that Christ has been raised from the dead. He has becomehas become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

23 But each one in their own order: Christ the first fruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming.

24  Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, having put down all enemies of every kind.

25 For Christ must reign until He humbles all His enemies beneath His feet.

26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is DEATH.

27 Clearly, God has put everything under Christ's authority. When God says that everything has been put under Christ's authority, this clearly excludes God, since God has put everything under Christ's authority.

28 But when God puts everything under Christ's authority, the Son will put himself under God's authority, since God had put everything under the Son's authority. Then God will be in control of everything.

29 If the dead will not be raised, then what point is there in people being baptized for those who are dead? Why do it unless the dead will someday rise again?

30 And why should we ourselves be continually risking our lives, facing death hour by hour?

31 For I swear, dear friends, I face death daily. This is as certain as my pride in what the LORD Jesus Christ has done in you.

32 If I have fought with wild animals in Ephesus, what have I gained according to the way people look at things? If the dead are not raised, "Let's eat and drink because tomorrow we're going to die!"

33 Don't be fooled by those who say such things, for "bad company corrupts good character."

34 Come to your senses and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don't even know God.

35 But someone may ask, "How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?"

The Mystery of the Resurrection:

36 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn't grow into a plant unless it dies first.

37 What you plant, whether it's wheat or something else, is only a seed. It doesn't have the form that the plant will have.

38 God gives the plant the form He wants it to have. Each kind of seed grows into its own form.

39 Not all flesh is the same. Humans have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds have another, and fish have still another.

40 There are bodies in the heavens, and there are bodies on earth. The glory of the heavenly bodies is different from the beauty of the earthly bodies.

41 The sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their beauty and brightness.

42 It is the same way for the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies, which die and decay, will be different when they are resurrected, for they will never die.

43 When the body is buried, it doesn't have any splendor and is weak. When it is raised again, it has splendor and is strong.

44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

45 The Scriptures tell us, "The first man, Adam, became a living person." But the last Adam -- that is, Christ -- is a life-giving Spirit.

46 What came first was the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later.

47 Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven.

48 Every human being has an earthly body just like Adam's, but our heavenly bodies will be just like Christ's.

49 Just as we are now like Adam, the man of the earth, so we will someday be like Christ, the man from heaven.

50 What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. What decays cannot inherit what doesn't decay.

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--

Raised to life AT CHRIST'S RETURN (on the Feast of Trumpets):

52 It will happen in an instant, in a split second at the sound of the last trumpet. Indeed, that trumpet will sound, and then the dead will come back to life. They will be changed so that they can live forever.

           The Feast of Trumpets! The trumpet was sounded to convoke the people on solemn feasts, especially on the    first day of the seventh month (the type of the completion of time; seven being the number for perfection; on the tenth of the same month was the atonement, and on the fifteenth the feast of tabernacles, commemorative of completed  salvation out of the spiritual Egypt, compare Zechariah 14:18 Zechariah 14:19 ); compare Psalms 50:1-7 . Compare   His calling forth of Lazarus from the grave "with a loud voice," John 11:43 , with John 5:25 John 5:28 . TheFeast of Trumpetsteaches us that Jesus Christ will visibly return to the earth at the end of this age. At that time He will resurrect the saints who are no longer living and instantly change those saints who are still alive to immortal spirit beings (Matthew:24:31 -And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together  his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

53 For our perishable bodies must be transformed into heavenly bodies and our mortal selves must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible body of ours has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then it shall be brought to pass that the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."

55O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"

56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power.

57 How we thank God, who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our LORD!

58 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and steady, always enthusiastic about the LORD's work, for you know that nothing you do for the LORD  is ever useless.

 


The Feast- Day 5- Why America is special

Bob Barney

This is an updated version of an older story on just why America is so special (along with Great Britain and Canada).  It's a story of our national identity - a great Feast study topic......

The Feast of Tabernacles is a holy day that is required by God to observe!  Most do not know that when the millennium comes, BOTH the Saturday Sabbath and the Feast of Tabernacles are required for the world to follow.  Most likely, all of God's holy days will be required, but we know from in:  

Zechariah 14, we read, "16And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall haveno rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles."

Isaiah 56, also mentions the requirement to keep the Sabbaths during the millennium!

  Blessed_2 Someone once asked me, "Bob how can you say in one breath that God has little to nothing to do with this world, yet then say that the USA one of the lost nations of Israel? In addition, that if we do not obey God, our nation will be destroyed by him? Which scenario is it, God involved or Satan’s world?"

 

I am quite sure that many have asked themselves the same question and let me assure you that there is an easy answer! God was totally involved in our world in the days of Adam and Eve. He (One of the divine Godhead that became Jesus) personally walked with them, talked with them and instructed them how to live in a godly lifestyle and have life forever. God had every intention to be involved in our lives from the start, just as any human parent has those same plans with their children.

Then sin entered the world through Adam and Eve’s disobedience of God’s Laws. Remember there is only one biblical definition of sin. "Sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4) Without the law, one cannot sin! (Romans 3:20 and Romans 7:7) When Adam and Eve broke God’s laws, they sinned. The Bible also gives us another term: "The wages (or penalty) of sin is death." ( Rom 6:23) Therefore breaking the laws of God, brings death! Therefore, Adam’s sin brought death to mankind.

REMEMBER!

By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth

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

 

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

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

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

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

Exodus 20:8

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That 4th Commandment Begins with this word:

REMEMBER!

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

Remember the sabbath Day and Keep it Holy!

 

Are you keeping this day holy?


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

God's Calendar is NOT the Jewish Calendar!

By Bob Barney

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com

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

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

Look at the book’s of Daniel and revelation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Genesis Proves the 360 Day Year

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

BY BOB BARNEY

image from i.pinimg.com

Yes you read the correctly!

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

The Sabbath:

Revelation 21:1-5:  

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

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

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

The Sabbath WILL NOT START AT SUNSET!:

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

Sacrifices and Holy Days: 

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

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

Holy Days:

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

 

Circumcision:  

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

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

The 10 Commandments and THE LAW are FOREVER!

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


Atonement is over- Tabernacles is NEXT! Starts TOMORROW --THURSDAY the 29Th

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

Feast of Tabernacles

In John 1:14 we read,

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

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

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

The tabernacle was filled with symbolism.

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

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

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

Gen. 1:16, “He made the stars also.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read CHRIST in THE TABERNACLE


Isaiah 53- The Suffering Christ and The Day of Atonement

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

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

The Prophets:

Isaiah 53

 

THE SUFFERING CHRIST:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                    He is our Passover lamb!            John 19:9

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

            

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

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

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


TONIGHT starts the Day of Atonement starts and IT IS FOR CHRISTIANS!

By Bob Barney

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 


3 Things Christians Should Know about the Day of Atonement

By Bob Barney

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

image from www.theplaintruth.com

#1 The Day of Atonement proves when the Day begins

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

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

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

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

 


As First Predicted in 2008, America has become enslaved by our leaders

commentary by Bob Barney first written in SEPT 2008!

From Sept.2020:     Today we have witnessed what I wrote about last spring about the eventual demise of the United States as a superpower and the Biblical outlook that we are destined to be destroyed by aliens among us as well as our dishonest leaders in Washington, with the nationalization of Fannie and Freddie, comrades Bush, Paulson and Bernanke has begun the conversion of the USA into the USSA (United Socialist State of America). This metamorphosis of the United States into a country where there is socialism for only the rich and well connected.  Wall Street (i.e. where profits are privatized and losses are socialized) continues  today with the nationalization of AIG as being owned by Uncle Sam!

This most recent exploit on AIG accompanies a diversity of many other policy actions that suggest a massive government intrusion in the financial markets and the economy: the bailout of the Bear Stearns; the bailout of Fannie and Freddie; the use of the Fed balance sheet (hundreds of billions of safe US Treasuries swapped for junk toxic  private securities); the use of the other GSEs (the Federal Home Loan Bank system) to provide hundreds of billions of dollars of "liquidity" to hard-pressed, illiquid and bankrupt mortgage lenders; the use of the SEC to falsify the stock market (restrictions on short sales); the use of the US Treasury to juggle with the mortgage market (Treasury will now for the first time outright buy agency MBS to manipulate and prop up this market); the invention of a whole host of new bailout facilities (TAF, TSLF, PDCF) to prop and rescue crooked banks and, for the first time since the Great Depression, to bail out non-bank financial institutions; the recent extension of the collateral available for the TSLF and PDCF facilities to a much wider range of toxic securities including equities and thus allowing the Fed to effectively manipulate even the stock market; Furthermore, a whole range of other executive and legislative actions (including the recent bill to provide a public guarantee to mortgages for banks willing to reduce their face value).

The truth is that the government should bail out the masses who were duped by our government leaders that everything was safe in our sick economy, but those who profited from this crime must be jailed, every dime of the money taken away and criminal investigations into our leaders that have knowingly caused this travesty to happen. Friends, THIS IS A CRIME that is bigger than anything that has ever happened to this country, and I make the claim that these crimes are treasonous and thereby carries the death penalty. Our Secretary of the Treasury has insured that his former company is the only one left standing on Wall Street after the Lehman fiasco. This was planned! Make no mistake about it. Mark 9-15 down as a day more important to our history than 9-11! September 15th is the beginning of the end of our democracy. Yes, we may last another ten to fifty years, but the seeds of our destruction have been laid. Only God hidden hand can ever allow us to recover from what has just happened. Our leaders are merging us into a world government under the authority of the Beast that will arise in Europe. Our freedoms are being dissolved and we will soon be in captivity. May America wake up NOW and stop this from happening! It is a time to pray.

 

Today's Update: Sept 2021

It's been 13 years now since I wrote the essay above.  We have seen the continual decline of American freedom and standard of living. The Deep State stole the presidency in a fake ballot 2020 elections. They have mandated you to turn your body over to them, wear masks, take injections that aren't FDA approved, and restrict travel.  Yes, as predicted by God, 3500 years ago Jacob, (which is America and Britain today) would be enslaved by its leaders and the foreigners living amongst them.  It has been fulfilled.  Our rights are gone. You have none of the rights GOD gave you in the Bill of Rights--NONE!  Every one of those rights have been abrogated by us all!  Woe is us.


The Fix Was in since 2018

By Bob Barney

First I warned against believing in "Q" because I knew it was  fraudulent information, controlled by the Deep State to lull pro-freedom loving Americans (and Trump supporters) into a trance, thinking that, although everything was going wrong, it was all part of Trump's plans.  Not to worry, the good guys are in control.  I debunked Q over and over again as being lies. I was right.

I began to worry about 2018, when the communist democrats took the house.  There was rampant election fraud, that basically went unchallenged.  

Then came 2020, the election most Americans actually looked forward to.  It became obvious that the fraudulent COVID plannedemic was a way to steal the 2020 election.  Anyone with the brain the size of a pea understood that Trump won the 2020 elections in a landslide.  The house changed back to Republican, and so did the Senate.  Then the steal started about midnight. As Republicans were banned from counting the ballots, millions of absent T ballots without post markings flooded the polling places between 1AM and 5 AM and house members who actually won, then lost to the COVID ballets. The same in the Senate and the same for Trump!  Look back at these Plain Truth stories on the great steal.

Now, as these same Americans, who just had the last two elections stolen by the communist democrats, actually believe the nonsense that 2022 is going to be different.  They are being told by FOX and NEWSMAX that the Demz are in big trouble. They may loose up to 100 seats in the house, and 4-6 in the Senate.  DON'T BELIVE IT!

The question I ask today is this.  Do the Democrats act scared?  I always say when your enemy isn't afraid of you, they know something that you should know.  The democrats act like they don't care what blacks thing about them, white women or hispanics.  They botched Afghanistan and do not care about public opinion.  House members defend runaway inflation and higher gas prices as good!  They are ready to pass the highest taxes on Americans of every color and class in history, yet we are to believe that they are doing this in an upcoming election year?  That they have no fear of the electorate?   

One must ask themselves why? Why is there no fear of elections.

There is only one answer.  Elections are all fixed!

The main stream media, along with FOX and Newsmax buried the biggest story in America’s history--The stolen 2020 election.

The media made Hunter Biden’s laptop (that implicated President Joe Biden in bribery scandals with both Ukraine and China) just disappear.  Yes that was their role: To cover up the rigged and stolen 2020 presidential election. Then they banned all mention of the stolen election. Now they’re trying to stop anyone from auditing the results.

They’re getting bolder, more reckless and corrupt by the day, because they know that they are free from real election results.

Here is an article you won't see on TV or most news outlet:

New Proof Positive that China Voted in America’s Election.

– By Harold Pease, Ph.D. –

Military intelligence knew that several foreign actor countries, notably China, intended to participate in America’s 2020 election.  Thus they prepared for this and captured “terabytes of information” of all foreign electronic vote changes in all 2,995 counties.  Through them we, today, can go to any county in the U.S. and see if its vote was changed by what foreign actor, precise time, precise place sent from and received, and precisely how many votes were changed.  This is the most thorough, powerful, and convincing documentation I have ever viewed.

This is the information Fox News anchor Lou Dobbs wanted to share the evening he was fired.  LibertyUnderFire opposes censorship and thus is sharing, from military intelligence, what the public was then forbidden to know by the censoring, globalist, establishment press. You decide!  We believe Americans capable of deciding for themselves without censorship.

Mary Fanning, national intelligence researcher, and author, is the voice summarizing “the election fraud, of foreign intrusion into our election… collected in real-time… before, during and after the election.”  She invites viewers to a screenshot of a chart with multiple columns and explains, “What you will see is documentation of foreign interference in the election. The first column…shows that on November 5, 2020, at 7:43 and 38 seconds we had a foreign intrusion, and it shows the IP address the Internet protocol address. That is the number of that protocol address of the hacker that entered into our election.”

Yes America. You no longer are free. Your vote means nothing and unless we see a 1776 type revolution - you are now enslaved. You have no more rights than the average Chinese citizen. Big media, Big government and Big Business (collectively THE DEEP STATE) are your masters - and they are COMMUNIST!  They do not believe in capitalism, they want the government to control business (and they want no competition).  Big Business loves China- and so too does the DEEP STATE.

Want more proof?

Personal Message from Bob Barney on The Plain Truth

As many are aware, my day job, which pays for this news site is running a paint company called Tamco.  Tamco has grown tremendously and has taken a large portion of my time.  On top of this, personal problems within the company have forced me and my wife Tammy to take complete control of our business.  I literally work 12-14 hours a day trying to manage our large company... My wife the same-maybe more.  In the past I was able to work a regular 8-10 hour day at Tamco, and spent another 3 to 4 hours doing the Plain Truth, which is my passion, and a promise that I would do this that I made to God 41 years ago now.

I finally got to start this in 2007 and it has been the joy of my life.  I have run out of time as of now to do this daily....  I am going to really make The Plain Truth a WEEKLY news magazine for the pending future.

The Messageboard will continue, as many other than myself post stories there and leave comments.  I hope and pry this may change, but for now go daily to the Messageboard, and weekly (PROBABLY SUNDAY-not sure) for the main page.

 

Thanks for your support

A Prophecy About Babylon Confirms the Accuracy of the Bible in Amazing Detail

By Bob Barney

image from s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com

Isaiah 45:1-3

Cyrus, the Lord’s Chosen One

45 This is what the Lord says to Cyrus, his anointed one, whose right hand he will empower. Before him, mighty kings will be paralyzed with fear.
    Their fortress gates will be opened, never to shut again.
This is what the Lord says:

“I will go before you, Cyrus,  and level the mountains.  I will smash down gates of bronzeand cut through bars of iron.
And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness—  secret riches.   I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord,  the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name.

image from i.ytimg.comBible skeptics often ridicule the Bible out of ignorance. Most simply do not know history, archaeology and the proof of fulfilled prophecy.  For example take the case of the Persian Empire led by Cyrus the Great.  His forces overwhelmed the ancient Babylonian empire in 539 BC. Babylon was a very strong city. Two thick walls and a large moat protected the city, making it extremely difficult for an enemy to attack. However, Babylon was divided into two parts. The larger part of the city was built on the east bank of the Euphrates River, and a smaller part of the city was on the west bank of the river. Babylon had strong walls, but it also relied on the Euphrates River and the moat around the city to protect it.  The Greek historian Herodotus, who wrote about Babylon about 100 years later, described how Cyrus’ army captured the city. Part of the army went north of Babylon and dug a trench from the Euphrates River to a nearby marsh. When the army connected the trench to the Euphrates River, much of the water in the river flowed toward the marsh, while only a little water continued to flow toward Babylon. While the Babylonians were confidently celebrating a feast, the strong river and moat protecting the city became very shallow, and the Medes and Persians were able to enter the city (Herodotus 1.191). They captured the city without a battle, and Darius the Mede was put in charge (Daniel 5:31).

There is NO question that this Biblical account happened, as all historians agree with the account found in the Bible.  However what most do not know is that the Bible's account of Cyrus is in one instance, written 150 years BEFORE this event happened!  It was the prophecy quoted above by Isaiah who lived from.  Isaiah was a Hebrew prophet who lived about 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ (That's 700 BC)  . He was Born in Jerusalem, Israel, he was said to have found his calling as a prophet when he saw a vision in the year of King Uzziah's death. Isaiah prophesized the coming of the Messiah Jesus Christ.

Simple math shows that when Isaiah wrote : “Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, who will not regard silver; and as for gold, they will not delight in it. Also their bows will dash the young men to pieces, and they will have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye will not spare children. And Babylon, the glory of the kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride, will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It will never be inhabited, nor will it be settled from generation to generation; nor will the Arabian pitch tents there, nor will the shepherds make their sheepfolds there (Isaiah 13:17-20), that this prediction was at least 150 years before the event actually happened!

Some may make the claim that it was just a lucky guess, but as stated earlier, not only did Isaiah predict that Babylon would be destroyed by the Medes, HE NAMED THE KING BY NAME!  This is what the Lord says: “I will go before you, Cyrus,  and level the mountains.  I will smash down gates of bronzeand cut through bars of iron. And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness—  secret riches.   I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord,  the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name."

Cyrus, upon meeting Daniel must have been so amazed that Daniel's God predicted his success and called him by name, that he was moved to make Daniel one of his most trusted advisors!  Upon reading Jeremiah's prophecy that the Jews would be held in Babylon 70 years, he obeyed the word of God and decreed that in the 70th year of their captivity that the JEWS COULD GO BACK to Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple and live in their own homeland again!  He was so amazed by the power of Daniel's God that he willingly fulfilled Jeremiah's prediction: (Her 29:10): This is what the LORD says: "You will be in Babylon for seventy years. But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again."

Do you still think the Bible is a bunch of fairy tales?  If you take the time to prove the Bible with History - you will see that God was behind the Bible and the predictions that it made for OUR TIME!

 


The Future of Europe, according to the Bible

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


Age of schism in west...

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

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

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

What the Bible Says About the Future of Europe:

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Real Benghazi Story that you won't read anywhere else- The OTHER Sept 11 Story nobody seems to remember

By Bob Barney

When King David got a married woman pregnant, he famously decided that in order to hide his sin, he would put the woman's husband in the very front lines of the battle, and then have his generals order a withdrawal of all troops to make sure the man, Uriah, would be killed in battle...... Sound familiar?  An order to the military NOT to rescue a hero in trouble?  Yes we have seen the same thing happen in Benghazi, this time better covered up. After all, Hillary and Obama are no King David, and thus far, God hasn't revealed this murder to the world.  

Could the real reason behind the death of our Ambassador be that he was a target of an American hit, just like Uriah?

How the Mafia Kills You:

1) They order you to an area for a meeting where you will feel safe, in fact, often you are escorted by a trusted friend that makes you feel at ease.

2) They only order a hit on someone who has either broken a rule of the organization OR THOSE WHO HAVE TOO MUCH INFORMATION ON THE MAFIA and is either threatening to go to the cops, or are feared might go to the cops.

3) Everyone in authority must agree to the hit.

Those are the rules. Now let's compare the mafia hit scenario with the Benghazi attack.

Steven's dragged

1)  "They order you to an area for a meeting where you will feel safe".... Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa followed up on this exchange to clarify the point made by Stevens’ top deputy in Libya, Greg Hicks. Hicks, who was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli on Sept. 11, 2012 (and thus was second in command to Amb. Chris Stevens), told multiple members at the Wednesday hearing that Clinton’s desire to make Benghazi a permanent State Department facility was one of the motivations for Amb. Stevens' trip there last September. “At least one of the reasons he was in Benghazi was to further the secretary's wish that, that post become a permanent constituent post, and also there, because we understood that the secretary intended to visit Tripoli later in the year,” said Hicks. “We hoped that she would be able to announce to the Libyan people our establishment of a permanent constituent post in Benghazi at that time.”

My Dad

Repeating... Today would have been Dad's100th birthday.  He's been gone 23 years now. Mom died this last July (2020).  My tribute to him that I first wrote in 2010

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

Bob1060My dad was born on this day in 1922. He grew up very quickly and terribly hard during the depression. His father died when he was very young, forcing his family to be broken up and sent to various farms to work as cheap labor – slave labor. At 12 and 13 years old many kids like my dad, ended up living with farm families, just for a bed and a meal. Little pay – if any. They were often treated like mere slaves. Dad told me of times that he would have to stay in the kitchen, as the farmers real kids celebrated Christmas in the living room, opening their presents and having a great family gathering. Dad was not included. That's how he grew up in the real world of the Great Depression, which for many poor people really started in 1925! It was a world that was often cruel and uncaring. Dad dropped out of school after the 8th grade in order to work. That experience made him sure that he would better himself, and that his family would never suffer as he had. For the most part he succeed, through hard work, and a sense of honesty and character. All who knew him respected him, most I would say looked up to him; I know I did. He was always my hero.  I grew up in the 60's when kids hated their parents, but that wasn't me, or my brothers.  Our parents sacrificed so we would have everything we wanted.  Yes, we had to work for those things, but we knew we would get them.

Dad's story changed dramatically and miraculously. Dad worked hard, often holding down two and three side jobs.  In The 1940's, he was still farming, and for a time ran the farm that was owned by the sister of the Warner Brothers, the movie studio brothers! He told me stories of all the movie stars in the 1940's that would come to the farm and how they told him that making movies was nothing like anyone would imagine. He did well for himself, and by the late 40's was running the very same farm that I would one day sell corn from and put me through college. People noticed his hard work an especially his integrity.  Dad didn't lie, cheat or steal from anyone. His word was law, nobody ever needed anything but his word! My mother was a devote believer; but my father was not outwardly religious - but had a great belief in God. Like Joseph in Egypt, he had a knack to turn things around and make people money. Soon this got the attention of the Nestle company, and Dad was hired and quickly worked his way up the ranks to a high paid management position. In doing so, we (his children) grew up in a storybook life. We lived well in the 50,'s 60's and 70's. As for me, I was good in school, went to college and ended up graduating at the University of Connecticut in the mid-70's.

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

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

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

ASHLEY BABBITT KILLER COP ID'd and The Plain Truth told you who he was months ago! UPDATE

 
 

Update # 4:

'Who shot Ashli Babbitt?' Trump put simply in a statement on Thursday after Nancy Pelosi announced the makeup of the select committee to look into the Capitol Riot.

Update # 3:

Update # 2

A lawyer for the family of Babbitt in an interview with NewsMax who revealed the family will file civil charges "over the violation of her constitutional rights."

The lawyer, Terry Roberts, was being interviewed about the decision by the Department of Justice to pursue no charges against the officer.

The shooting death has raised a multitude of questions that have yet to be answered. For example, Babbitt apparently did not see the officer and reportedly there was no verbal warning. The officer's lawyer has claimed several warnings were issued.

But critics of the shooter pointed out that Babbitt was unarmed, she could have been arrested at any point there, and that the officer even fired the fatal shot into a crowd where other officers were, potentially endangering them.

UPDATE: 1

No charges, no identity of shooting officer: Feds close probe of Ashli Babbitt's death

It is a matter of public record when a cop kills anyone! Derek Chauvin, is accused of killing drugged up George Floyd name was released instantly!   But the Feds refuse to release the killer of Ashley. And photo's below may show why.... The female cop who mistakenly shot a fleeing suspect, arrested named and house address posted within hours of the incident.(Kimberly Potter arrested, to be charged with manslaughter in Daunte Wright shooting)  The Democratic led Federal Government is a MAFIA!   They murder, they steal, the extort and they are EVIL! They want you enslaved OR DEAD!

Ashli Babbitt was shot and killed while trying to climb through an interior door at the U.S. Capitol with a group protesting alleged election fraud

Attorneys representing Ashli Babbitt's family recently released a statement.

Babbitt was unarmed when she was shot and killed by a law enforcement officer at the Capitol on the day of the riots.

For some reason, the name of the officer who shot her has not been released.

Babbitt attorney's statement appears below:

The shooting of Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021 by an unidentified U.S. Capitol Police Officer was an unjustified use of deadly force which violated her constitutional rights. It is clear from video footage that Ashli did not pose a danger to the officer, or any other person, when she was shot. Ashli was unarmed. She did not assault anyone. She did not threaten to harm anyone. There was no excuse for taking her life.

It is a universal law enforcement standard that a police officer should use no more force than necessary to accomplish a lawful purpose.  At 5′ 2″ tall and 110 pounds, an arrest of Ashli could have been accomplished by a single trained officer with a set of handcuffs. At the time of the shooting, there were over a half-dozen police officers in close proximity to the Speaker’s door where Ashli was standing. Some of those officers had just allowed protesters access to the door by stepping aside. Other officers, dressed in full tactical gear, stood among the protesters just a few feet behind the door. Still others stood casually at the opposite end of the Speaker’s Lobby, unconcerned with the activities of Ashli and the protesters around her. All of these officers were in a position to have aided in the apprehension of Ashli if it was necessary. Given her background as a 14-year veteran of the Air Force, it is likely that Ashli would have complied with simple verbal commands, thereby making the use of any force unnecessary.

However, the officer who shot Ashli never attempted to arrest her. Nor did he call on his fellow officers to arrest her. Instead, he fired a shot into her chest. Witnesses confirm that the officer did not give Ashli a single verbal warning prior to firing. In fact, Ashli was not even aware that the officer was present, as he was located in the doorway of a room off to the side of her field of vision.

To date, the officer who shot Ashli has not been identified. Neither the Capitol Police nor any other governmental authority has given an account of the facts surrounding the shooting. There has been no official explanation or justification for the use of lethal force in this matter. This lack of transparency impedes the public scrutiny which is necessary to hold government officials accountable in a free society. It also interferes with the ability of Ashli’s family to obtain justice for their loss.

My law firm and I represent Ashli’s husband and family members. We will continue to investigate this matter.  We intend to take appropriate legal action when our investigation has been completed.  We call upon the Capitol Police as well as the United States Congress to make public the facts and circumstances of Ashli’s shooting.

If you have information regarding this matter, you may contact us and receive updates on Twitter at Justice for Ashli Babbitt @ForAshli.  Emails can also be to the address alone.

Maybe the reason????

Have you ever stopped to realize that the MSM narrative that 5 people were killed at the Capitol ‘insurrection’ on Jan 6th is one big straw man?

They love to tell us that 5 people died, but really 4 died on the day of the event, and they were all protestors/members of the rally or provocateurs.  The protesters did not kill 4 LE officers.

If the cops had killed 4 BLM rioters we would have never heard the end of it.  The entire narrative has been bunk from the beginning.  They have hidden the identity of the man who shot and killed Air Force Vet Ashely Babbitt … until now, when independent journalists seem to have made a break through in identifying the killer:

The Gateway Pundit reports:

‘On January 6th, 2021, Ashli Elizabeth Babbitt was executed by a Capitol Police Officer who seemed to hold no restraint.

50 days later, the Capitol Police Officer responsible has been identified in photos before and during the shooting.

The Police Lieutenant’s name is being withheld from Ashli Babbit’s attorneys.

This is the Officer responsible for using excessive force and executing Ashli Babbitt.

Before killing Ashli, the Officer is seen aiming his firearm at fellow colleagues.

Below is the screen trap of the hands sticking through the fortified position which allegedly fired the shot that ended Babbitt’s life.  NOTICE THE JEWELRY:

Now, these images are from the Gateway Pundit, here is another image of the man who appears to be wearing the same jewelry:

It I important to remember that this is just speculation at this point.

Well, what do you know take a look at the man on the left hand side of the frame and his right wrist …

HOWEVER, could you even imagine for just a second if a WHITE cop shot an unarmed black woman who was ‘peacefully protesting’?   The media would not have stopped talking about it since.

The Liberty Valence Factor

By Bob Barney

It was a John Wayne movie many years ago;  It’s a black-and-white movie, one of the best movies ever saw and it was titled "The man who shot Liberty Valance." It was, a story about a easterner are played by Jimmy Stewart, who came west and was really a 'fish out of water'.

He was a young lawyer who believed in the law, but out west, there was no law.   There was  a villain in the town named Liberty Valance (played by Lee Marvin) who robbed stage coaches, and while coming west, he robbed Jimmy Stewart! Valance, a bully  got  his way in about anything he wanted to do.

Now there was another man played by John Wayne call Tom Donovan who was the meanest toughest yet good person in that town, the only person who Liberty Valance feared and would never try to confront. That moral was when you’re strong even the bullies leave you alone.

The point I’m going to make here is going to really be unique. You see the movie goes on to show that Jimmy Stewart gets in a gun fight with Valance and although he has no experience shooting or using a gun, he somehow to manage to kill him in that gun fight and he becomes the town hero.

HERE IS THE SCENE

He goes on to win the governorship, become a senator, become a vice president, and could be the president at the flick of his hands. And the only reason for all this fame that he had was he was the man who shot Liberty Valance. His entire "credentials was really a lie. So the story shown in flashbacks, starts with a scene where Jimmy Stewart now a very important senator, comes back to his hometown in Arizona to attend a funeral of a person who died there, whom no one in the town remembers just who he was! Except the old-timers, the name Tom Donavan had been forgotten!

So the local newspaper man wants to know why Jimmy Stewart, a famous senator, would come back and to attend this "nobodies" funeral. So Jimmy Stewart tells the truth after 30 years--for the first time ever!   You see, when he first was running for state senator his opponent accused him that he only was famous because he shot a man, and that was no basis to elect him as senator!   His opponent claimed that no man should become a hero because he took a life. Jimmy Stewart was a proud man but he was a good man and he was ready to quit over his guilt of killing Valence,  so he decided to quit the race and go back and practice law.

So in comes Tom Donovan, played by John Wayne who is mad at him. Not only did Jimmy Stewart steal away John Wayne’s girlfriend, played by the beautiful Vera Miles, he was angry at Jimmy Stewart's ignorance.  So, he tells Jimmy Stewart, ‘you didn’t kill Liberty Valance I did’

Just short YouTube video of that scene that powerful scene and then comes the moral of the story afterwards:

You see in every day life there is somebody who is known"as a man who shot Liberty Valance type" and they basque in the sunlight of a lie and underserved glory.  That some unknown person is the reason why they are famous. Person who never really gets the credit and I’ve always called that person" the Liberty Valance factor" person.

In the scheme of things the moral of the story goes even further because behind all success behind every successful person there is the man who shot Liberty Valance. The unknown person who has made us all, just who we are! Now I’m gonna reveal that person to you, He is Jesus Christ, the creator of you may the universe in the world. The God of the Old Testament — Who actually wrote the 10 Commandments with his own fingers-- the God who talked to Adam and Eve in the garden, the God who loved Abraham as his best friend: the God who protected king David, a person many people hated in his day, but God didn't agree.  God actually said that David a man after his own heart!   So always remember whenever you’re successful or whenever you see a successful person the man who shot that Liberty Valance factor is none other than your God and your Savior!   If you ever forget that, may God help you

The one thing Barack Obama was right about but he didn’t even know who did, was "that you did not build that."

No one’s built anything, yet it isn’t the government you should think who built that--- it is your God and Savior who died for you so that you may have eternal life and be God a part of the family of God--- never to suffer again who has given you every good thing you have.
