Tonight is the real Passover - Tomorrow the feast!

By Robert R Barney

Just that you know, because most don't, tonight is the Passover in God's Calendar. Tonight will be the Passover meal, followed by seven days of unleavened bread. Tomorrow will be the "HIGH DAY" starting at dawn. The Bible clearly points that "Christ is our Passover" and that we are to "keep the feast" (Blue Letter Bible it folks, you will find it!). Unfortunately, most Passover following Christians churches MISTAKENLY follow the Jewish calendar and have the wrong date of Passover and every other one of God's Holidays. Now you know the real date!

 The reference below is a good read on Christians and Passover, but they too follow the wrong date.

 Should Christians Follow the Passover????? Passover-2

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

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

By Bob Barney

1

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

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 Over the years, God's Law (THE TEN COMMANDMENTS) has been replaced by man's law.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

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

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

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

Let's examine the first week:

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

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


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

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

Question for you Sabbath Keeping Churches...

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

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

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

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

Samuele Bacchiocchi, Ph. D., Andrews University

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Bible says the day starts in the morning!

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

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

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

The day symbolizes YOUR LIFE!

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

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

As John says, "Come Jesus..."


When America was truly a Super Power

Buy Bob Barney

From a year ago!   How things have so quickly changed with a stolen election

1During this latest "crisis" the one thing that the coronavirus has proved to us is that America is no longer a super power. We manufacture very little in this country, as we are finding out in this latest coronavirus episode.  A super power is not a consuming country, but rather a manufacturing country.  This what America was in 1942.  We manufactured for the entire world, we didn't need to import anything.  Today America is a paper tiger, a weak dependent nation - dependant on other nations. God predicted this to Moses about us.  

Yes, it's true,  we can nuke every enemy we have, and that is a deterrent, but in a widespread tactical war against true powers like Russia (someday Germany and Japan again), and China, we would quickly find out how weak we really are.  Superpowers control their destinies. Superpowers make everything they need to go to war, Superpowers do not need trading with enemies to build it's war machine.  Japan, Germany in 1940 saw just what happens when one goes to war without there own natural resources! They lost, and in such a war today, we will as well!  We are as weak today, as Churchill and England were in 1939!   Read these stats:

During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, "We the People of the U.S.A." produced the following:
            22 aircraft carriers
              8 battleships
            48 cruisers
          349 destroyers
          420 destroyer escorts
          203 submarines
            34 million tons of merchant ships
   100,000 fighter aircraft
     98,000 bombers
     24,000 transport aircraft
     58,000 training aircraft
     93,000 tanks
   257,000 artillery pieces
   105,000 mortars
3,000,000 machine guns and
2,500,000 military trucks
 
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and, ultimately, conquered Japan and Germany.
 
It's worth noting that this all took place in less than half the time the Obama Administration was in place.   With more than twice this amount of time, the Obama Administration couldn't even build a healthcare web site that worked!!!
 
To his credit, Trump has been trying to reverse this, but still at this time, three years into his term, America is still a consuming economy- depending on everyone else in the world to literally survive...    This is what Donald Trump is trying to do for us- MAKE US A TRUE SUPER POWER AGAIN!   It's time America wakes up and supports his efforts to make America Great Again!
 
It’s amazing what America did in those days, let's makes us like this again!

Today is the REAL New Years's Day- What you need to know.

By Bob Barney

New year

Exodus 12:2 "This month is to be the first month of the year for you. 

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

When Roman Emperor Julius Caesar declared January 1 as the world’s New Year’s day based on a pagan god named Janus, from which we get our month January. Specifically, Janus was two-faced, a fitting metaphor of the flip-flopping that marked New Year’s day through the centuries.    The emperor thought his deity would be the suitable portal to the new year, as one of his faces looked forward to a new year, the other backward. That’s the sanitized version of New Years. The messy and convoluted history of the January 1 New Year’s observance reveals chronological confusion amid political intrigue, race hatred, and fuzzy math—all in an attempt to improve upon the Biblical calendar as inspired by our Creator.

The Bible however makes it clear that the New Year starts at sunrise in the spring, and is the month that Passover must fall.  “The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, “This month is to be for you the first month, the first
month of your year. Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household” (Ex. 12:1-3).

Notice the Lord tells Moses that the month of Passover (Nisan) is to be “the first month of your year.” The passage is so clear that no one debates what is being said.

In God's real calendar, not the one followed by Jews and many seventh day observers, a New Month is NOT necessarily and most likely does not occur on a "New Moon."  It falls on a solar event, namely the equinox in the spring.

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

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

Calendar.1

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

This marks the last month in God's calendar, and unlike what we do today, although the month is still only 30 days long, there will be 6 extra days left over at the end of this month that just don't count!   Why?

The answer is that the world used to have a rotation of only 360 days, and not the 365 1/4 days that is present today.  The earth's rotation around the sun has slowed down, and to fix this error each year at the end of the 12th month, extra days are added before the 1st month of the year starts.  The 1st month starts on the Spring equinox, and the calendar must stay in perfect harmony.   The extra "no days" was the simple answer. The Egyptians did the same thing!

Can you prove this biblically?   NO, but you can prove that the year is only 360 days long!  Read Revelation for the answer...

A lot of people wonder about the 42 months spoken of in the book of Revelation (11:2; 13:5).   Chapters 11-13 of Revelation contain five references to various periods of time, which I will quote in the order of their appearance in the inspired text. “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months” (11:2). “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth” (11:3). “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days” (12:6). “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent” (12:14). “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months” (13:5).

You will notice that in these three chapters, we have the following three temporal terms: 1,260 days, mentioned twice (11:3; 12:6); 42 months, also mentioned twice (11:2; 13:5); a time, times and half a time, mentioned once (12:14).

Let us look carefully at these three temporal periods. First, if we reckon that there are 30 days in a month, how many days are there in 42 months? The answer is 1,260 days! Second, 42 months are how many years? Since there are 12 months in a year, 42 months are 3 ½ years, which is the equivalent of “a time [1], and times [2], and half a time [½]” (12:14), for 1 + 2 + ½ = 3 ½. Thus these three time periods are the same! The 1,260 days are equivalent to 42 months, which are equivalent to 3 ½ years or times.

Is there any indication in Revelation 11-13 that these three time periods are the same and coextensive? Yes. First, in Revelation 11, the 42 months are mentioned in verse 2 and the very next verse refers to the 1,260 days (3). Second, in Revelation 12, the woman or church in her place in the wilderness is fed for 1,260 days (6) and, in a parallel statement, we are informed that the woman in her place in the wilderness is “nourished for a time, and times, and half at time,” that is, 3 ½ times or 3 ½ years (14).

In Revelation 12, the woman brings forth a male who is to rule the nations, Jesus Christ, who ascends to His throne in heaven (5). What happens the woman upon Christ’s ascension to, and reign from, heaven? “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days” (6). Thus the 1,260 days start upon Christ’s ascension and session at God’s right hand.

Moreover, with Christ’s ascension to His throne, Satan is cast out of heaven (9-10, 13) and persecutes the woman for 3 ½ times or years (13-14). Clearly, the 1,260 days and the 3 ½ years or times start at the same time, namely, with Christ’s enthronement in heaven.

So, if you believe the Bible, God's calendar is plain.  It is comprised of 12--30day months, or 360 days!  Obviously, 5 1/4 days are NOT COUNTED in this calendar!

Happy NEW YEAR!


It's the New Month, and THE NEW YEAR.

By Bob Barney

NewYear

Tomorrow is the Start of the first month of the Year and a countdown to Passover

 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt,  "This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year"

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

Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count.

This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.

Evidence of God’s calendar beginning in the Spring is found in the Roman calendar itself and is actually hidden in plain sight.  The Roman calendar has most of its months named after pagan gods or Roman emperors; for example: January honors Janus, the god of beginnings/endings and gateways, and August honors Caesar Augustus). However, only the first 8 months are named this way (January to August).  The last 4 months do not have specific names, but just generic names signifying what the number of month it is: September = 7th month; October = 8th month; November = 9th month; December = 10th month.  When we count backwards from the 7th month of September to when the 1st month must be, we find that it is in March – the Spring.  The existence of the numbered months still in today’s Roman calendar is a leftover from God’s calendar which begins in the Spring.  In the Bible, just as only the 7th day of the week is named while all others are numbered, the only month that is named is the 1st month while all others are numbered (note that the modern Hebrew calendar names the months based from their Babylonian captivity).  So we can clearly see that the first calendar – God’s calendar, began in the Spring and was overlaid with the Roman calendar which began in January, the middle of winter. (source)

God declares that the month of the Abib is the first month of the year, occurring on March 20th.  The month of the Abib sets the course of God’s sacred calendar with the beginning of His holy feast days which are special appointed times for the children of God to observe.  These holy feast days outline the salvation plan of God with the Messiah Yeshua/Jesus as the central focus in all of them.  Abib is when we observe Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread

Happy NEW MONTH & NEW YEAR!


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

Matthew 24 a series of commentaries....


By Bob Barney-The Plain Truth

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

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

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


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

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

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

 

Jesus warned us about A False Christ


By Bob Barney-The Plain Truth

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

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

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


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

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

So what if only a few people read my commentaries?

For some unknown reason, I get quite a bit of hate mail, or more accurately, harassment e-mails. I think it may surprise them if they only knew that 'sticks n stones' do't bother me a bit. The simple reason is that I write to an audience of two, that's it. I am really satisfied if only two sets of eyes read what I write. I do want my family to read what I write, in an effort to impart what knowledge I have gained over the years to them, but I am also honestly aware that they sometimes don't as much as I wish they would. Someone sent me an e-mail sarcastically informing me that I probably don't have more than 25 people reading the nonsense that I write. Well to be honest, it is a little more, but almost never more than 500 or so, unless of course it is about sex, or Danica Patrick, of NASCAR fame. I have one article on Sex and the Bible that has been opened at least 45,000 times! The few on Patrick that has been put on The Plain Truth also have thousands of views. I guess they saw no pictures, and quickly clicked 'back.'

 

So who do I write for? Myself, perhaps? Nope. I write to God; both the Father and to Jesus, and do so in the same way I pray to them. So my writing style is a bit unprofessional. Reading something I write is usually a stream of consciousness set of thoughts, much like if one had a conversation with me on a phone, or in person. Some readers tell me they enjoy it, I am sure my English teachers cringe and deny they ever had me in their classes.

By Bob Barney, The Plain Truth

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

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

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

What Must Happen BEFORE Christ Returns

Are We in the Last Days (Prelim 1985)01

By Bob Barney 

Are we living in the last days? Are we in the end times? Is the return of Jesus Christ right around the corner? These are the questions that many of us ask ourselves whenever we read the book of Revelation or the Gospel of Matthew concerning the return of Jesus Christ and his kingdom of God that he is bringing with him. 

First of all there is a misnomer, with the term “end times” that most people have. Jesus was never talking about the end of the world and John in his book of Revelation wasn’t either. What both men were talking about is best described with the phrase “the end of the age” of mankind.

When God created man, Adam and Eve to be exact, a new age upon this earth began. It was the age of mankind and it began approximately 5 to 6000 years ago, as best we can tell. Adam was set up to rule this earth during this age, but because of Adam’s sin, he lost his right as ruler of this age–the age of mankind. Many are not aware that the Bible plainly states that the Earth is much older than man. In fact, those who believe the earth to be billions of years old are not necessarily in conflict with the Bible at all! It is very possible that the earth is very old. In Genesis the correct translation of God creating the heavens and the earth is that God re-created the earth after a cataclysm that is not mentioned. This former earth was under the rulership of the great archangel Lucifer, the angel who rebelled against God and became Satan. If Adam had not sinned, he would have been the ruler of this age. But Adam did sin and was not able to replace Satan as the ruler of this age.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ, one that is rarely ever presented in churches today, is that Jesus as God is coming back to replace Satan as the ruler of this earth and usher in a new age. When Christ returns, he is bringing the kingdom of God with him, a government that will have no end, and the age of man will come to an end. That is the gospel that just is not preached today. Jesus was not merely talking about salvation.  He definitely wasn’t talking about how to get to heaven.  What he was talking about was bringing God’s government to earth, complete with God’s Laws and God's Love.

When Does the day really start

By Bob Barney

Some say Midnight - others think at sunset - what does the Bible say?

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

Christmas, Easter, Sunday worship actually pre-date the earthly ministry of Jesus! Yes you read that correctly, these holidays have nothing to do with Christ and were being followed long before GOD became a man and walked among us. Even in the garden of Eden, the very first religious lie promulgated was the "immortal soul" doctrine. To this day, we believe the devil and that "we shall not die, but be like God" and live forever as some spirit in heaven or hell. That is Satan's lie and almost every false religion has adopted it.

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

In the very first chapter of the Bible we read "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."  

When did this happen, in the evening time? Is there light at night? Read on..."And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. " So called the light DAY! So when GOD said "Let there be light" it became day! It was dawn!

America (Israel) in Captivity: New Dem Bill would take away free elections forever

The Plain Truth has been warning for years what our future holds according to God's word. We, along with parts of Western Europe, Britain, Australia and New Zealand are the "lost" tribes of Israel.  All prophecy in the Bible where "Israel" is being warned about the "end times" are never referring to the Jews!  Jews are not Israel. They are Judah, only one tribe of Israel.  God made 12 (later 13) different nations out of Jacob's children, who if you believe God, would number in the billions!  That could never apply to the Jews.....   Read who the tribes are here.  And where they can be found today. Read about the importance of the number 13 here.  Do not be fooled. God foretold of a time when ISRAEL would be enslaved by evil godless rulers and illegal foreigners. You can read about it HERE

It appears that this years stolen election, coupled with OUR SINS (abortion, refusing to obey God's Laws, refuse us to allow God to be in our schools and hearts have finally taken its goal.  We have been enslaved.  We are in captivity.  Our destruction is near.


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

By Bob Barney

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

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

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

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

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

MY VIEW: Patriots Refuse to wear Masks that don't even work!

Masks are a symbol of slavery. I have been saying that for months now... The Deep State in collusion with the medical community has trashed the Bill of Rights, and your freedom!  We are right now slaves to evil- if we wear masks.   Just like Jews being forced to wear yellow stars!

image from www.theplaintruth.com

Here is a great commentary by: by Jason Gold

The debate over mask wearing because of Covid has become a passionate and in some cases a positively combustible debate with mask shamings, assaults, even shootings by disturbed mask wearers on non-maskers.  If you're pressed for time and need to move on, here's my two cents, in brief:

1. Masks don't work. Unless you have a plastic face shield as part of a hazmat suit or a gas mask with its own oxygen supply, cloth, cotton, N95 masks are an exercise in futility. Why? Basic math. The porosity of all of these masks are on average 0.3 microns, in order to to allow you to breathe. The diameter of the Covid virus is 0.1 microns, so we have a failure on a basic math and structural level. These masks were not designed to stop viruses from getting in or going out but to stop bacteria which are about 1000 times larger.  Also, most of these have no seal around the face and nose which allows for breathing leakage.  Why do you think surgeons wear them in surgery? Not to stop viruses. It can't. It stops bacteria from the surgeon's mouth and nose from getting into the surgical field. The mask coupled with sterile room conditions and laminar flow ventilation is quite good at that. But viruses? Pfft.
2. If the virus is so deadly why aren't there hazmat cans for disposing of them with hand washing stations everywhere? If they work, why are prisoners being released instead of giving them masks? If they work, why do we need social distancing? If social distancing works, why do we need masks? Why are cloth masks, paper masks, kerchiefs, scarves, any old face covering acceptable? Why are the rates of infection sky-high in Muslim countries where at least 50% of the population (women) have perpetual face coverings?
3. Wearing masks for prolonged periods of time are detrimental to your health.  You are re-breathing your expelled CO2, you are re-breathing your own germs. You are causing your O2 saturation to drop, setting you up for a stroke, heart attack or just good old loss of consciousness, which is exactly what has been happening to drivers who wear them while driving and pass out.
4. Two recent studies, one in the New England Journal of Medicine and one in the British Medical Journal, as well as a soon to be published one from Holland, conclude masks have little if any value, with cloth worse than surgical.
5. Conclusion? Masks are useless. It's not about our health. It's about control. But try using these rational arguments on brainwashed Karens and Kens.

Now for the good stuff.

A few weeks ago, The Wabasha County Republican Party posted a meme on their FaceBook page (whether it was deliberate or a "hack" as they later claimed is debatable) that compared mask mandates to the infamous yellow stars that Hitler YMS, made the Jews wear in Nazi Germany. The image is below.


In addition Dane Hicks, owner and publisher of The Anderson County Review in Kansas, posted an anti-mask image of her, superimposed upon a picture of the Holocaust that showed the following:

 

 

The knee-jerk reaction of Jews to both of these was entirely predictable. The usual cries of racism, bigotry, anti-Semitism, insensitivity, etc. rang out across the land. Both groups apologized, though I tend to believe Hicks' apology was more heartfelt.  And yes, I agree that the use of the Holocaust imagery was somewhat over the top. Yet, while the Jews were busy being offended, they missed the entire point of both these incidents.  Masks via forced mandate with no science to back it up, IS the new yellow star. The parallels could hardly be more striking.


There is a particular lesson that can be learned from Hitler's strategy to have have Jews in Nazi Germany wear the infamous yellow stars. Hitler could not just wipe out the Jews right away. He had a three pronged strategy. Denigrate, dehumanize and then destroy. Of course this was after he first took away all the guns from the population, disbanded all local police, destroyed historical statues and had book burnings.  Sound familiar? But I digress. Once the Jews were no longer considered human, it would be much easier to find his willing accomplices in the German population. The yellow star was part of that strategy. It showed that Jews were property, cattle, sub-human, untermenschen, to be done with as the state pleased.

Mask-wearing is the product of illegal and unconstitutional mandates imposed by power-hungry (and in some cases, elder killer mass murderers in the Hitlerian tradition), elected officials (almost all Democrats) in order to keep people controlled, docile, fearful and obedient.  This is a prime example of obedience conditioning that history shows is necessary for the imposition of any Marxist/socialist/fascist agenda. If challenged on a federal level all the mandates would be tossed for lack of scientific evidence as well as imposition of freedoms. But in the meantime, acceptance means you have been sub-humanized, you are not in control of taking care of your own health, you are a victim of a capricious act on your freedom and on your individuality. You are property. You are less than human.

So why the Yellow Star analogy of masks if it applies to non-Jews as well? NY was the epicenter of the virus nationwide with more than 40% of the cases occurring here and more than 30,000.00 dead due to gross negligence and incompetence of the government as well as criminally-negligent homicide on the part of Governor Cuomo as it relates to the nursing homes.  The initial high-profile cases occurred in the Jewish communities of New Rochelle, the 5 Towns, the epicenter of the modern orthodox communities. Modern Orthodox, Reform, and Conservative Jews have a particular pathology of trying to be "more Catholic than the pope" and be good citizens and listen to the government, no mater how outrageous or illegal the mandates because they are concerned of what the goyim think. So they have rushed to embrace mask wearing, social distancing, fracturing of the shuls and embracing the Zoom life to be good citizens of the state, or good sheeple. 

The Jewish communities in the tri-state area absorbed a heavy blow from Covid because of our density, our social interactivity and interconnectedness which spread an engineered virus more infectious than the flu, but with the same lethality profile.  However, despite the media's best effort to bury the story, the herd immunity rate in NY by now, is north of 70% as a report last month showed. Which means all of this, masks, social distancing the lockdown is now a complete sham.

People ask me, "Ok what's the big deal? It's only a mask, right? It makes people feel better, like they have some protection. Thats a good thing, right?" Sure, but remember it was a lockdown to protect all the elderly and save the ventilators until the bad modeling and faulty data showed it wasn't. It was just two weeks. Until it wasn't. It was to flatten the curve. Until it wasn't. Then it was until there were no new cases. Until it wasn't. Now its some states (Democrat, of courseI) saying they can’t open till there's a vaccine. What's next? "Health Passes" that allow freedom of travel only if someone is vaccinated or can prove immunity? How did it go in Nazi Germany? “May I see your papers, please”?  If the masks are the yellow stars then mandatory vaccines just might be the tattoo.  Compliance is not a virtue. It’s cowardice. Wake up folks, realize you are being played or here is a meme that might turn out to be prescient.

'Take off your mask!': Florida protesters sporting MAGA t-shirts and hats defy COVID rules and march maskless through Target store

Social media footage shows a small group of anti-maskers (left) marching through the aisles of the retailer's store (inset) on North Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. The group, many of them sporting 'Make America Great Again' t-shirts and hats, are seen shouting 'take it off' at other customers. Footage outside the store showed a man ranting about being 'sick and tired of having to wear one of these things' and throwing a mask to the ground (right). One anti-masker present Cristina Gomez first hit headlines in June when she claimed people wearing masks were 'obeying the devil's laws'. Florida does not have a statewide mask mandate but several businesses - including Target - have rules requiring customers and staff to sport face masks.

The foolishness of those mask wearers

“By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.” — Russell Blaylock, MD

Bob Barney

image from external-content.duckduckgo.comI get a laugh out of the people wearing masks, because big brother told them too.  You see them wearing them while driving their cars - alone, you see them walking in the woods, or on a country road- alone, and you see them in their own homes - alone!  America has truly become a dumbed down nation, as the Bible predicted when God said, "My people die because of lack of knowledge.". That's more true than ever ! Your God tells you in His personal book written for you, called the Holy Bible, that you are dying, because of your lack of knowledge!  Our leaders have failed us. In fact, the despise us! They want to enslave us, and forcing us to wear a mask, they know that by doing so, we will actually become sicker, and even more dependent on them! They know that masks kill, that's why we keep seeing pictures of these leaders caught without wearing them!  WAKE UP AMERICA!  Your election was stolen, your private information has been stolen, and your health is being taken away by a lie.  You have become slaves!

Global Research published findings that should shock you!  It should make you mad, mad enough to want to kill those doing this to your loved ones.  Make no mistake, your leaders want to kill you!

Researchers found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had preexisting headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 (hypercapnia).

It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their head. This, of course, can lead to death.

A more recent study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask.   Some had pre-existing headaches that were precipitated by the masks. All felt like the headaches affected their work performance.

Unfortunately, no one is telling the frail elderly and those with lung diseases, such as COPD, emphysema or pulmonary fibrosis, of these dangers when wearing a facial mask of any kind—which can cause a severe worsening of lung function. This also includes lung cancer patients and people having had lung surgery, especially with partial resection or even the removal of a whole lung.

 

The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome.

People with cancer, especially if the cancer has spread, will be at a further risk from prolonged hypoxia as the cancer grows best in a microenvironment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen also promotes inflammation which can promote the growth, invasion and spread of cancers.  Repeated episodes of hypoxia have been proposed as a significant factor in atherosclerosis and hence increases all cardiovascular (heart attacks) and cerebrovascular (strokes) diseases.

There is another danger to wearing these masks on a daily basis, especially if worn for several hours. When a person is infected with a respiratory virus, they will expel some of the virus with each breath. If they are wearing a mask, especially an N95 mask or other tightly fitting mask, they will be constantly rebreathing the viruses, raising the concentration of the virus in the lungs and the nasal passages. We know that people who have the worst reactions to the coronavirus have the highest concentrations of the virus early on. And this leads to the deadly cytokine storm in a selected number.

It gets even more frightening. Newer evidence suggests that in some cases the virus can enter the brain. In most instances it enters the brain by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves), which connect directly with the area of the brain dealing with recent memory and memory consolidation. By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.”

The Plain Truth Predictions on Donald Trump over the Years

Trump won the election - but lost His presidency- Here is why

By Bob Barney:

Right from the start of this piece, I want to make it clear that I think it is obvious that Democrats stole this past election by probably over 10-12 million fake votes, as well as trashing probably several million of Trump votes.  However, that is not the point of this article.  I have been warning for over 3 years that President Trump was setting up his own destruction by #1 His arrogance and #2 His pure stupidity of picking his team.   In a July 2019 story I posted called: Trump Could Be the Next George H.W. Bush??--I made the suggestion that Trump, although popular was following many of the same mistakes George Bush made in 1991 and 1992 listening to advisers that did not have his best interests in mind.  I also posted another article named:Ever-Trumpers- about moronic EVER-TRUMPER's, every-time a negative story comes out about him, they claim it's all a plan of Trump (citing the moronic Q-anon nonsense) and that he is winning everywhere.  They compare him to a God-like hero who never can make a mistake.  Trump's ego liked this very well as well.

Again in January 2019 The 'Deep State' Calls Are Coming From Inside Trump's White House my article started out ":  

    Reposted. Run Dec 18 2018

                        Forward by Bob Barney... With the appointment of another Deep State, Never Trumper Mick Mulvaney, Trump has again picked an insider that does not agree with the Trump agenda, and may actually work against him, maybe even helping himget impeached.  I know that there are people out there that thinks Trump is the smartest man in the world, but he is certainly not acting like he is, in fact he is acting against the interest of those who supported him IN FAVOR of globalist in many areas.  

Steve Bannon reportedly has told people he thinks President Donald Trump has just a 30% chance of completing his four-year term.  I starting to agree!

According to two of the sources, Bannon warned Trump several months ago about the possibility of getting removed from office via the 25th Amendment, prompting Trump to ask, "What's that?"

stipulation of the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet — that is, 13 of 24 Cabinet members — to vote the president out of office. Bannon reportedly considered it a more likely scenario than Trump's impeachment.

So that’s consistent. Like Pence, Pompeo has also denied being the author, but Bob Woodward’s book Fear makes numerous points from various members of Trump’s cabinet and staff which are also consistent with the op-ed.

  • According to Woodward’s book, Secretary of Defense James Mattis once said that Trump “acted like — and had the understanding of — a fifth- or sixth-grader.” The president’s poor understanding of global diplomacy occurred during a meeting about troops on the Korean Peninsula.

  • John Kelly called Trump an “idiot” who has “gone off the rails” to “Crazytown.”

  • In a bid to thwart a third world war, aides reportedly hid documents from Trump. James Mattis apparently once snapped at Trump that “We’re doing this in order to prevewww.rawstory.com/...nt World War III,” after he was asked why the U.S. is spending money to detect North Korean missile launches.  (This was part of the same exchange that led to former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson supposedly called Trump a “fucking moron.”)

  • Following the launch of chemical attacks against his own people, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad apparently almost became a target of U.S. assassination. According to Woodward’s sources, when the president heard news of the attack, he exploded and ranted “Let’s kill the f*cking lot of them.” Aides convinced him to instead opt for an air strike.
  • Several staffers have snatched paperwork from the Oval Office desk to protect the nation. In one case, an aide swiped a letter that would have withdrawn the U.S. from a trade agreement with South Korea that affects our ability to monitor North Korean nukes. “I stole it off his desk,” former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn said, according to the report. “I wouldn’t let him see it. He’s never going to see that document.”
  • Former staff secretary Rob Porter said he also stole documents off the Resolute desk. “A third of my job was trying to react to some of the really dangerous ideas that he had and try to give him reasons to believe that maybe they weren’t such good ideas,” Porter reportedly said.

This all matches Scarramucci’s claim that there are people in the WH who think they have to protect the country from Trump.

“There are people inside the administration who think it is their job to save America from this president,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s "New Day."

“That is not their job. Their job is to inject this president into Americaso that he can explain his views properly and his policies, so we can transform America and drain the swamp and make the system fairer for the middle- and lower-income people,” Scaramucci continued.

Er, what?  And also, ewww.     MORE

All along the way, Trump has made decisions to surround himself with Never Trumper's, then gets mad when these people turn on him.  Those who supported Donald Trump like Rudy Guilani were overlooked when Trump put his cabinet together.  

IF TRUMP NAMED RUDY as ATTORNEY-GENERAL- NONE OF THE LAST 4 Years would have been the same!

Guiliani would have fired the directors of the FBI and all those behind the phony Russia-gate nonsense.  He would have indicted James Comey, Andrew McCabe and probably even Hillary Clinton!  

Why Trump dissed his own supporters for "Deep Staters" has boggled my mind since day 1!   Many of these have given interviews (especially on NewsMax TV) opening wondering why Trump kept picking deep staters, which he did!

In the end, Trump will not be president in Feb 2021, not because he didn't win the election, as I believe he did, but because in his arrogance, he ignored those he should have trusted, and trusted his enemies.

 

The Plain Truth on TRUMP.  warnings we gave for 3 years!

Over the years the Plain Truth ran quite a few articles on Donald Trump, and what to worry about.  I'll be plain... Trump won in 2020 by a landslide, but some of his own actions helped his "defeat!"

A History of our articles!  

 

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

First published almost two (2) years ago, and updated several months ago, I predicted that some of Trump's woes can be traced to his own arrogance.  Impeachment is a sham, but he lost some of his public support by his own actions and choices, especially this FAKE pandemic that he has been snookered by

Bob Barney

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

Daniel on the Madness of Nebuchadnezzar

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why January 1 as New Years Day? Thank the Romans and the Pope!

By Bob Barney

1

Most nations around the world hold that the New Year begins on January 1.  This wasn’t always the case. In fact, for centuries, other dates marked the start of the calendar, including March 21 (The spring Equinox- which, according to God's Calendar, is the true New Year's Day!) and December 25. So how did January 1 become New Year’s Day? Well you can thank the pagan Romans first, and the equally pagan Catholic Church next!

The  first mention of using this date goes back to the Roman king Numa Pompilius. According to tradition, during his reign (c. 715–673 BC) Numa revised the Roman republican calendar so that January replaced March as the first month. Notice, even at this time, the entire world was still following Go's calendar, with March being the New Year!  It took the evolution of paganism (Satanism) to replace God's true calendar with that of pagan gods... It was a fitting choice, since January was named after Janus, the Roman god of all beginnings; March celebrated Mars, the god of war. (Some sources claim that Numa also created the month of January.) However, there is evidence that January 1 was not made the official start of the Roman year until 153 BC.

In 46 BC,  Julius Caesar introduced more changes, though the Julian calendar, as it became known, retained January 1 as the year’s opening date. With the expansion of the Roman Empire, the use of the Julian calendar also spread. However, following the fall of Rome in the 5th century CE, many Christian countries altered the calendar so that it was more reflective of their religion, and March 25 (the Feast of the Annunciation) and December 25 (Christmas) became common New Year’s Days. They chose March 25th, because that calendar was off by 4 days a year.  They had the equinox on March 25th, and the winter solstice (now Dec 21st) on December 25th.

In designing his new calendar, Caesar enlisted the aid of the Alexandrian astronomer, Sosigenes, who advised him to do away with the lunar calendar and follow the solar year, as did the Egyptians. The year was calculated to be 365 and 1/4 days, and Caesar added 67 days to 46 B.C., making 45 B.C. begin on January 1, rather than in March. He also decreed that every four years a day be added to February, thus theoretically keeping his calendar from falling out of step. Shortly after Caesar was assassinated in 44 B.C., Mark Anthony changed the name of the month Quintilis to Julius (July) to honor him. Later, the month of Sextilis was renamed Augustus (August) after his successor.

The true Christian Church, that was founded by Jesus and the Apostles frowned upon these pagan rituals, and that church stayed with the TRUE CALENDAR ordained by God!  A great false Christian Church, which started in Rome, was a pagan church, originally worshippers of the God Mythra!  This false church created the ecclesiastical calendar that we follow today. Scholars know that Jesus wasn't born in December, even the Biblical account of shepherds watching over their flocks in the fields – which would not have happened in winter – make a winter birth unlikely. But celebrating Jesus birth’ during the time of the existing pagan celebration of the solstice was convenient and the Church usurped the holiday.

It later became clear that the Julian calendar required additional changes due to a 4 day miscalculation concerning leap years. The cumulative effect of this error over the course of several centuries caused various events to take place in the wrong season. It also created problems when determining the date of pagan Easter. Thus, Pope Gregory XIII introduced a revised calendar in 1582. In addition to solving the issue with leap years, the Gregorian calendar restored January 1 as the start of the New Year. While Italy, France, and Spain were among the countries that immediately accepted the new calendar, Protestant and Orthodox nations were slow to adopt it. Great Britain and its American colonies did not begin following the Gregorian calendar until 1752. Before then they celebrated New Year’s Day on March 25.

Over time non-Christian countries also began to use the Gregorian calendar. China (1912) is a notable example, though it continued to celebrate the Chinese New Year according to a lunar calendar. In fact, many countries that follow the Gregorian calendar also have other traditional or religious calendars. Some nations never adopted the Gregorian calendar and thus start the year on dates other than January 1. Ethiopia, for example, celebrates its New Year (known as Enkutatash) in September.

So this is why January 1 is the New Year!   Once again, the so-called modern world continues to follow the traditions of the pagan world of antiquity.... Think about that......

Bob Barney: How to make your vote work again

This was first published 18 years ago on WND

While many Americans believe their elected representatives in Washington are nothing more than a bunch of pickpocketing shysters intoxicated by the influence of powerful lobbyists, the solution – as radical as it might sound – might just be to put more people in office.

I propose we amend the Constitution to add even more members to Congress – and I mean dramatically more.

When our founding fathers built the country on a representative form of government, they intended the masses to have a democratic voice. They sought to make one government body controlled by the majority of voters; hence, the House of Representatives, the people's voice in government.

The sole purpose for this branch of Congress was to ensure that the majority of the voting populace had a say in government actions. That's why House members have the shortest term in office, at two years.

While there's no doubt the framers of the Constitution were brilliant planners, they did not foresee the eventual size and scope of America, especially in terms of population growth. In a way, the population explosion has become the Achilles heel of our republic.

The Encyclopedia of World History states "Following the establishment of the new constitutional order, the U.S. population increased from 3.9 million in 1790 to 9.6 million in 1820. The Louisiana Purchase in 1803 added the nearly 2 million people who occupied the nine new states and three territories west of the Appalachian Mountains. The nation's urban population increased from less than 550,000 in 1820 to 1.8 million in 1840. By 1870, when the U.S. population reached nearly 40 million, about 25 percent of the total lived in cities, as the urban population grew more rapidly than the population as a whole."

When founding fathers originally assigned 435 members for the House, they were delegating one member for roughly every 8,900 people. Of this amount, only 900-1,000 could actually vote. Keep in mind, only land-owning men over 21 had that right – not women, not children, not minorities. No wonder we read about Davy Crockett walking his district to press the flesh with his electorate. He could easily meet every man that voted for him, a far cry from today where the average congressman meets only a small fraction of constituents.

Today, a House member may represent a half-million or more citizens in his district, with another 150,000 eligible to vote. With such a ratio, do you think your congressperson really cares one whit about your personal opinions? If members do their job correctly, they've already neutralized your vote through gerrymandering.

Politicians quickly learn it's not their constituents they need to worry about, but rather, money. And to get that cash, they cozy up to the people and corporations that have it. The result? Taxation without representation for the vast majority of voters! The same issue that helped spark the American Revolution.

If a constitutional amendment were passed to put the House back to the same representation level as in 1789 (one House member per 1,000 voters), we'd actually need 202,000 members. I'm not suggesting we adopt that large a figure, but if we took the population ratio of 1789 – 8,900 per district – we would still need 20,000 House members. Can you start to see how much more important a vote was to Davy Crockett than one is today?

My compromise is that we set up a new Congress based on the idea that a congressperson has districts of only 50,000 registered voters (that would get the voter registration drives up) and that the number of House members are not limited. The 2000 census indicates the U.S. has 130 million registered voters and another 73 million more adults not registered.

To make the math easier, let's assume that we would have 150 million registered voters after the new law goes into effect. That would equate to about 3,000 representatives. Now before you laugh, remember we've had at times ten times that number of people in the Pentagon alone. These 3,000 could meet in a new building, pass laws, do the business of government and then send their bills to the Senate.

It sounds simplistic, but it would put government back into the hands of the common man. Corporations cannot buy 3,000 votes. Citizens would personally know their congressman again, like in olden times. Neighborhood leaders would find themselves elected to Congress. Local issues would have weight again in Washington, and the special-interest groups would be relegated to spending their time and money on senators and the president.

The new system has an added bonus when it comes to presidential elections.

The Electoral College would increase by almost 2,600 voters where suburbs and rural areas would have a greater weight in elections than they do today. You'd find White House wannabes meeting more voters in person. Look at the map of the 2000 presidential contest. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that George W. Bush carried the majority of the land mass of America. Granted, large cities would acquire many more House members, but so would the large suburbs that surround the cities.

Finally, our forefathers never envisioned full-time lobbying, not to mention a full-time Congress.

Lobbyists have had a larger influence on our government than any of the framers ever envisioned. On both the far right and the far left, a few powerful groups have held the vast majority of Americans in bondage. It's especially true in the Senate, where large unpopulated states have far more representation than larger states, and lobbyists have an easier time getting their agendas made into laws. A stronger House would better control a much too-powerful Senate.

So, by shifting the balance of power back to the voters, we'd return our country back to what our founding fathers initially envisioned: a land of free persons who can control their destiny through the ballot box and not the rifle.

What was the Star of Magi that they followed and when was Jesus Really Born?

THE MAGI:

By Bob Barney

1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea when Herod was king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He who is born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east, and have come to worship Him." When Herod the king heard it, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

 Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he asked them where the Christ would be born.nThey said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written through the prophet,  'You Bethlehem, land of Judah, Are in no way least among the princes of Judah: For out of you shall come forth a governor, Who shall shepherd my people, Israel'". Micah 5:2

Then Herod secretly called the wise men, and learned from them exactly what time the star appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem, and said, "Go and search diligently for the young child. When you have found him, bring me word, so that I also may come and worship him."

 They, having heard the king, went on their way; and all at once they saw that the star, which they followed from the east, went before them, until it came and stood over where the young child was.

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.  They came into the house and saw the young child with Mary, his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Opening their treasures, they offered to him gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Notice these wise men (and we do not know the number) came to a house to visit the baby Jesus, not to the manger. They were not present when he was born, but came upward to 2 years later! Notice that in verse 16, Herod orders all children two years and under to be killed!

Starofbethlehem

The wise men (Magi) were probably scientists and came presumably from Babylon, but possibly from Assyria or Chaldea. Scientists of this day were also considered religious figures as the ancients rightly knew that science and God go together, unlike today. When Daniel was in captivity in Babylon, he eventually became the leader and the teacher of a group known as Magi... It can be assumed, since Daniel knew the future, he instructed his students to look for signs of the coming Messiah.

At about the sixth century Catholic tradition changed the Magi into Kings and their number was fixed at three because of the threefold nature of their gifts gold, frankincense and myrrh (but six Kings in the eastern tradition), yet the Bible nowhere mentions their number. It could have been two, three, four or forty!

The star was not very bright and obvious to everybody, but must have held astrological significance. Also it must have been a fairly long lasting phenomenon. Possibly Daniel knew what this astrological phenomenon would occur!

It was only in medieval times that the star got to be depicted as very bright and with a tail, suggesting a comet or a meteorite, but again, the Bible makes no such statement! In fact, there is a possibility that the “star” was actually an angel, as the Bible refers to angels as “stars!”

Still we may wonder what has caused the story and what information on the dating of the birth of Christ it may contain.

After many years of research, I have come to the conclusion that the star was actually the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter, something, by the way, is going to happen this December 21st2020.

We know from the Bible that Jesus was born during the reign of King Herod. Herod died sometime around a lunar eclipse seen from Jericho and around passover time, so probably eclipse of March 12, 4 BC. We also know it was during the time of the census, which Augustus proclaimed in 8 BC! Reasonably, Christ was born between this years....

The famed German astronomer Johannes Kepler  observed the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in 1603-04, which caused him to calculate back in time and to suggest that the one in 7 BC was the star of Bethlehem. I believe he was right. Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) was one of the great mathematical minds of human history. As Arthur Koestler wrote in The Sleepwalkers, “Kepler and Galileo were the two giants on whose shoulders Newton stood.”

In the ancient world planets were symbols. Jupiter was the planet of Kings, Saturn was the planet of the the priestly class, and happening in the constellation of Pisces, representative of the Jewish people. So this meant to the Daniel taught Magi, was a King of the Jews was to be born and this King would be the priestly Messiah!

The Conjunction occurred 3 times over the course of a year. The year was probably 6 BC, but some argue 7 BC. Both years would fit...It occurred over a period of time---which would cover the period of Christ's conception and the Magi's journey to Bethlehem, as recounted in Matthew 2:9–10.The first was May 29th which is Pentecost and probably the day John the Baptists was born. The next conjuncture was at the time of the Feast of Tabernacles and Atonement. THIS IS WHEN JESUS WAS BORN! Remember the Magi did NOT visit Jesus in the manager! That is paganism! The Bible clearly shows they visited Jesus in a HOUSE! Herod himself, when meeting the Magi, ordered all male children in Bethlehem to be murdered up to 2 years old, showing you that the Magi knew the child was no longer an infant in a manger! The third conjuncture happened in December (like this year) around the 21st, when they found the baby Jesus in a home! He was either 3 months old, or possibly 15 months old, depending on possible calendar error.

It is clear the Christ was not born in December. The flocks were still in the field, and in December in Israel, flocks are in barns. Luke 2:8 provides the first indication, as flocks were still in the fields at night. The flocks were brought in for the winter season of mid-October to mid-March.

The next proof is the fact that Jesus was born six months after John the Baptist (Luke 1:24-2636). When was John the Baptist born? May 29th! Because Zacharias’ (his Father) he priestly functions during the 7th Month Feast of Tabernacles, which starts Sept 29th, when he was told he would have a child, and nine months later would be as late as May 29th, when the same “STAR” appeared, but more likely during Passover times as he was six months older than Jesus. Therefore, Christ’s birth had to be in early autumn or during the feast

Christ was probably born on either the Day of Atonement or during the Feast of Tabernacles (First or Last Great Day?). The Magi got to the house much later, during December, leading to the false Christmas manager scene we see today during the pagan XMAS celebration. Christ was not born December 25th, but tradition holds it the Lucifer (Satan) was created on that day! Think about that.

 The next great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be on the day of the solstice: December 21, 2020. Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions happen every 20 years; the last one was in the year 2000, but wasn't visible during the daytime. The 2020 great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest since 1623 and the closest observable since 1226! On December 21, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn will be only 0.1 degree apart. Some say the pair will look like an “elongated star” on that date. Will they? We’ll have to look and see! They’ll surely be an appealing and mind-expanding sight. This extra-close Jupiter-Saturn conjunction won’t be matched again until the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction of March 15, 2080.

What you will probably see this solstice will be what the Magi's saw over 2000 years ago on the same day! A “star” leading to the baby Jesus. Not Jesus' birthday, but their visit!


Rush Limbaugh claims the US is 'trending towards SECESSION'

The Plain Truth has been warning for years now- We are heading for a civil war!

Rush Limbaugh warned that the US is 'trending towards secession' because 'there cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life' in one nation on his radio show Wednesday (above)
  • The conservative radio host, 69, predicted that some states may soon break away from the rest of the US and declare independence in his show Wednesday
  • 'I actually think that we're trending toward secession,' he said
  • Limbaugh said America is becoming increasingly polarized between conservatism and liberalism, and the two cannot have 'a peaceful coexistence'
  • 'We can't be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way,' he warned
  • The radio host is one of Trump's biggest supporters and was controversially given the nation's highest civilian honor by the president in February 
  • The only other time in American history that states have seceded was in the lead-up to the Civil War when 11 southern states cut ties with the Union
  • Fears of a deep-rooted divide comes as 19 states have broken rank following the election result, taking legal action to throw out ballots in four other states
  • Texas AG Ken Paxton filed a suit with the US Supreme Court against Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia to have millions of votes thrown out 
  • 18 states have backed the suit and Trump asked to join it 
  • 106 House Republicans – more than half the GOP's majority – then endorsed the suit in a brief filed Thursday
