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.

#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.

Is This The remains of Sodom? Gomorrah ???

the Bible As History- Yes, you can depend on the accuracy of Biblical History 

Researchers find 3,600 year-old evidence that Tall el-Hammam was destroyed by a 'cosmic

Researchers have unearthed 3,600-year-old evidence that Tall el-Hammam was destroyed by a 'cosmic impact' and may have inspired Bible story of destruction of Sodom. They uncovered pottery shards that had their outer surfaces melted into glass, 'bubbled' mudbrick and partially melted building material. The event was 'larger than the 1908 Tunguska explosion, experts say. This impact leveled the city, leaving the palace and surrounding walls flat. Human remains (including a skull) were found, indicating exposure to temperatures above 200°C.

Charlemagne, Holy Roman emperor: Europe's Amazing Rise Foretold in Bible Prophecy

image from i2.wp.com

Bible prophecy clearly shows that Jesus Christ will return to establish the Kingdom of God, a literal world-ruling kingdom, on earth. This hope is so fundamental that Jesus instructed Christians to regularly pray, “Your kingdom come” (Matthew 6:10; Luke 11:2). Prophecies throughout the Bible give many details about Christ’s return and conditions in the world leading up to that event.

The rise of this final world superpower is foretold primarily in the biblical books of Daniel and Revelation. We’ll begin with what God revealed to the prophet Daniel in Old Testament times.

After years of decline, the Roman Empire indeed received a “deadly wound” in A.D. 476 when Rome’s Emperor Romulus Augustulus was deposed by Germanic tribes led by Odoacer. But that was not the end of the Roman Empire. As we will see, that “wound” was indeed healed and the empire would rise again—and again and again through history.

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.


Inventor of mRNA vaccine floats inconvenient question about possible 'safety issues' with genetic jab

Vaccine
Trust the science: The phrase has echoed across the world throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, a supposed safeguard against questioning what mainstream "science" feeds us -- or even injects into us.

But as controversial as it seems, basement-dwelling, tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists aren't the only ones acknowledging that something could go wrong with mRNA vaccines -- some of the first vaccines authorized for distribution and COVID-19 prevention in the U.S.

This time Dr. Robert Malone -- the inventor of mRNA vaccines -- is considering the idea himself.   MORE>>>>>


5 Signs to Look for in the End Times

Prophecy One: America’s Death Knell

Knowing the identity of nations is the key to understanding end-time prophecy. (You can have this key by requesting a free copy of Herbert Armstrong’s book The United States and Britain in Prophecy.) Old Testament prophecies, for example, spring to life when we understand that the termIsrael is referring to modern-day America and the British Commonwealth.

The entire chapter of Ezekiel 33 is a tragic prophecy about Israel’s downfall. In verse 11, God laments the destruction of these people, saying “turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”

The Prophet Hosea saw a similar fate for the United States and Britain (Ephraim). “And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them” (Hosea 5:5). The Prophet Jeremiah also spoke of a time of unprecedented trouble in Jacob (also Israel, or the United States). “Alas! for that day is great,” he wrote, “so that none is like it: it is even thetime of Jacob’s trouble …” (Jeremiah 30:7).

According to each of these prophecies, we know it is the end time when the United States is stripped of its power and global supremacy and is overrun by its enemies. President Obama’s speech in Cairo was a sure warning that we now live in that time!

Curses-deut-28As one commentator noted in the London Times, he became the first Western leader since Napoleon to address Islam as a single bloc, thus legitimizing the Islamic extremist view that the world should be divided along religious lines. In his 54-minute, 6,000-word address, not once did the president use the word terrorism. His administration has carefully avoided using the term war on terror—opting instead for the obscurely worded “overseas contingency operation.” His repeated attempts to extend an olive branch to Iran and the rest of the Islamic world send an unmistakably clear signal to America’s enemies: The terrorists are winning. And they know it.

Jeffrey Kuhner, president of the Edmund Burke Institute, wrote about the global significance of the Cairo speech. “It will be remembered as the pivotal moment in history when the United States ceased to be a superpower,” he wrote. “Sapped of its self-confidence and sense of grandiose destiny, America chose the policy of appeasement over confrontation, lies over truth, illusion over reality” (Washington Times, June 13, emphasis mine throughout).

America’s position in the world, ideologically, morally, economically and geopolitically—especially in relation to radical Islam—has been declining for years. Obama’s capitulation in Cairo was a very public sign that America lacks the moral clarity to discern good and evil and the mental willpower to stand up against tyranny.

America’s enemies recognize weakness when they see it. The president’s overtures in Cairo, as sincere as they might be, will not result in better U.S.-Islamic relations, nor bring the people of the world together in peace. Instead, for all of his trouble, asAsia Times opined, the president will get “more megalomania from Iran, more triumphalism from the Palestinians, and less control over Iraq and Afghanistan. … It is hard to imagine any consequence except a steep diminution of American influence”(June 2).

The Fix Was in since 2018

By Bob Barney

image from th.bing.com

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?

Travel With Your Car on the Amtrak Auto Train

image from www.tripsavvy.com

 Busà Photography / Getty Images

Driving 850 miles on I-95 is the ultimate test of patience even for a road trip enthusiast. Thanks to 21st-century transportation, there's a way to travel between Virginia and Florida that doesn't require spending 12 hours straight in a car.

Sure, a flight would be quicker, but the Amtrak Auto Train allows people to bring along their vehicles without having to physically drive that far. The car-carrying train that runs through five East Coast states is the first of its kind in the nation.

The auto train can accommodate cars, vans, motorcycles, SUVs, small boats, and jet skis. Reservations are required and are only available to those who are traveling with a vehicle.

The Amtrak Auto Train's northernmost station is in Lorton, Virginia, 20 miles south of Washington, D.C. Its central location—within about a 4-hour drive of Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh—makes it a convenient starting point for northerners traveling south and vice versa.

 

Station in Sanford, Florida

The southernmost station is in Sanford, Florida, which is 25 miles north of Orlando. Walt Disney World, Daytona Beach, and Tampa are all within easy reach.

 

Ticket Options and Travel Time

Ticket prices vary in accordance with comfort levels. The most basic fare will get you only a coach seat, but spend a bit extra and you'll be sleeping in a bedroom suite with a private bathroom. Special accommodation is offered for families and people with disabilities.

 

Keep in mind that bringing a vehicle—which is required for all passengers—is an additional charge. The nonstop trip takes just over 17 hours, slightly longer than the time it would take to drive the 850 miles without stopping (and without traffic). The train departs daily.

The Nomadic Life 

Tips for Traveling on the Auto Train

As with any booking, it would be wise to read the fine print. Remember that you must obtain your Auto Train tickets before you board the train, regardless of whether you have an electronic ticket or a paper ticket. A photo ID is required to pick up tickets on the day of departure.

 

Check-in times vary depending on the type of vehicle you'll be traveling with, so find which window applies to you and get there ahead of time.

 

Pack a small carry-on bag for your overnight stay on the train and leave nothing you may need in the car because you won't have access to it at any point on the trip. Each passenger is allowed two carry-on bags and veteran Auto Train travelers have recommended making room for a pillow and blanket, especially if traveling in coach. All other luggage must remain in your vehicle.

 

Car alarm systems should be deactivated to avoid the risk of having a dead battery upon arrival. Dinner and breakfast are included in the price of your ticket, and snacks are available for purchase in the lounges. Passengers may also bring their own food and beverages if they prefer.

 

Once you arrive at your destination, retrieving your vehicle can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours, so plan accordingly. For an extra fee, you can upgrade to a Priority Vehicle Offloading ticket, which will guarantee that you're one of the first 30 out the door.

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

'Global warming is a religion, not a science'

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.comLike evolution, global warming is not science, but a pagan inspired religion of mother earth worship. Don't be fooled, both pseudo-scioences are in fact a carefully crafted plot to take away your freedoms and to enslave you to a Satan led world government.

Sky News host Andrew Bolt has hit out at the Opposition, arguing that everything about 'Labor's global warming policy is a con' as thousands rally around the world calling for climate change action. Mr Bolt says global warming 'is a religion, not a science' and insists climate protestors are just repeating 'the old religious cry of repent, for the end of the world is nigh'.

The remarks come as several large scale climate change protests take place around the globe. Former Greens leader Bob Brown is taking part in an anti-Adani convoy up Australia's east coast, while thousands of Extinction Rebellion activists rallying in London, causing disruptions and closing down parts of the city since demonstrations began on April 15. The Sky News host has labelled Labor leader Bill Shorten a fake trying to fix 'a fake climate crisis' with his own 'idiotic global warming plans'.

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!

 


Today is the 7th Month of God's Year! Called Trumpets

By Bob Barney

New month

Today is a special "New Month" Day.  Bible's translate the beginning of each months, as New Moon festivals, because at one time, before the flood, new moons started the new months. This isn't true today, so the best translation would be New Month Festivals....  This month, the 7th Month of the year is the most sacred month of all of God's 12 months.  It's the month of feasts, fasts, and festivals.   This month symbolizes the return of Christ, End Time troubles and the coming millennium, as well as when there will be a New Heaven and new earth when God the Father Himself will actually dwell with us!  

God’s appointed times (also known as feasts) which are written in Lev 23 consist of 7 separate events which are “remembrances of God’s grace in time past” as well as “prophetic shadows of things to come”. Even though these feasts have been branded “Jewish feasts”, it is very clear that these were called “My feasts” and “LORD‘s feasts” by our Heavenly Father (Lev 23:2,4,37).

Contrary to popular belief, Yeshua (the Hebrewl name of Jesus, simply Joshua in English and Jesus in Greek), His Disciples and even the highly misunderstood Apostle Paul, did not teach or abolish God’s Law. Just as God’s Commandments will stand till Heaven and Earth exists, The “Feasts” or “Appointed Times” of God (which are part of God’s Law), is, and will be in effect in the time to come. Out of the 7 events asked to be remembered, God has fulfilled 3 of these prophetic events in the time of the first coming of Messiah.

As Christians, we all look forward to the Second coming of Christ. In today's articles, we will study the Prophetic significance of the “Feast of Trumpets” and the coming of our Messiah. The Feast of Trumpets IS THE FIRST DAY of the 7th Month--- a special "New Month" Holy Day or Sabbath Day!

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

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

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

Calendar.1

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

THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS! It is for Christians

Forward By Bob Barney: The following is a great scholarly look at today, and why it is an important day to CHRISTIANS! Most of these writers in today's edition of The Plain Truth follow a different day than we believe is the true date of this holy day (holiday). Why? Most Sabbath observing churches follow the Jewish calendar, which we have shown to be not the calendar of Moses, or Jesus. The modern Jewish calendar is based on their Babylonian captivity and Jesus did not follow the same calendar that Jews were following at his time. This is why his Passover was a day ahead of the Jewish Passover! We will have more on this during the feast... 

The Book of Life and Rosh Hoshanah (the Feast of Trumpets)?

By COGwriter

image from messianicpublications.comIn the Churches of God (COG) which had origins in the old Worldwide Church of God, we keep various biblical holy days, including the Feast of Trumpets, called Rosh Hashanah by most Jews. Does this Holy Day have any applications for Christians? Did the ancient Jewish teachers know something about this day that most who profess Christ do not seem to realize?

The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hoshana) begins the evening of the first of Tishri (a month that almost always begins in September on the Roman calendar).

According to current Jewish tradition,

After Rosh Hashanah services, as the congregants leave the synagogue they say to each other... "May you be inscribed in the Book of Life"" (The Jewish Holiday of Rosh Hashanah. High Holy Days on the Net. http://www.holidays.net/highholydays/rosh.htm verified 9/12/07).

The Biggest Global Warming Lie NOW EXPOSED!

Less than 10 years remain before the oft-claimed "tipping point" for the planet, but sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is the highest it's been in nine years, increasing more than 30% from last year, while the Antarctic's level is well above normal.

He noted the Arctic Ocean gained a record amount of sea ice during the first week of September.

"Most years the Arctic loses ice, but this year ice extent has increased" more than 77,000 square miles, he wrote on Twitter, adding the news likely would not be reported by CNN, BBC News or the New York Times.

Meanwhile, the sea melt this summer was the lowest in 15 years, and the expanse of Antarctic sea is well above average.

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.......

In case you haven't noticed recently, the world in which we live seems to have lost its bearings, sliding toward some sort of dark abyss, both in America and across the world.

No doubt, you're familiar with old problems such as murder, war, theft, disease, homelessness, hunger, lying, economic turmoil, religious strife, lusting, adultery, fornication, unwanted pregnancy, abortion and people having a lack of care and concern for their fellow man.

But these days there are a host of new concerns that have many people shaking their heads in disbelief.

I Knew-Updated A Bob Barney Commentary

By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth.com   Originally Published in 2013 Updated on Sept 11 2021

NwoWhen Edward Snowden came forward to identify himself as the leaker of the National Security Agency spying programs, politicians and the media alike, from left to right have been working overtime to discredit the man who some actually view as a hero for revealing crucial information the government had kept secret. Apparently, if you think hiding information about spying on Americans is new, and that it took some 29 year-old nobody to reveal these secrets, then you are a part of the great silent majority of Americans who have kept themselves in the dark. The real problem is not that our government is spying on us, it is that this has been known to anyone with a micron of a brain since the 1970's! I am amazed at the fact that I could be Edward Snowden- and have never worked for the NSA, CIA or the United States Government!  In fact, I know of many more secrets than he has revealed, and have known many of them since the 1970's!

For example: I knew all of this (with links to the stories):

In the 1970's I knew that:

1   Kennedy had the President of South Vietnam assassinated because he was becoming a national patriot. President Johnson believed what Richard Nixon always knew: that the Kennedy White House did not merely tolerate or encourage the murder of Ngo Dinh Diem, but organized and executed it because he was turning against USA policies that would eventually end up in the slaughter of some 60,000 young American drafted, and tens of thousands more maimed for life! It's part of the record. I know it from reading, not from working for Uncle Sam. Three weeks later, Kennedy fulfilled Jesus' prophecy: “Those who live by the sword, will die by the sword” when he himself was gunned down in Dallas. Oh, by the way, anyone with a brain that can connect three dots knows what and who was behind that....
