There is great wisdom in this FB post I found:

C.S. Lewis (the most-quoted non-member in General Conference) from his book "The Great Divorce" to all my precious friends here who have experienced monstrous adversity to become Saturday's Warriors:
“Son,'he said,' ye cannot in your present state understand eternity...That is what mortals misunderstand. They say of some temporal suffering, "No future bliss can make up for it," not knowing that Heaven, once attained, will work backwards and turn even that agony into a glory. And of some sinful pleasure they say "Let me have but this and I'll take the consequences": little dreaming how damnation will spread back and back into their past and contaminate the pleasure of the sin. Both processes begin even before death. The good man's past begins to change so that his forgiven sins and remembered sorrows take on the quality of Heaven: the bad man's past already conforms to his badness and is filled only with dreariness. And that is why...the Blessed will say "We have never lived anywhere except in Heaven, : and the Lost, "We were always in Hell." And both will speak truly.”

I was back over at my old group chatting with people there.

My old lead who is from PR literally fell off the earth about two months ago.  Just disappeared with his PR wife who is also an engineer with my company.  I think it may have had to do something with a family emergency and rioting down in PR.  How much have we heard in the mainstream news?

I have seen little to none.....


Not sure if this will affect the US' economy, or not.  I doubt it.  But another ominous sign.....

Someone on my FB group says that it was predicted that PR would be the first to default as the ship started to sink.  Tim is looking up the source on that.  Juicy......

Meanwhile, my company is cutting all contract engineers loose on the exact drop dead date of my 2016 777 prophecy.  Next - direct engineers.

Hoping, hoping, hoping!  Freedom, at last!


This happened in 2014 - and everything the Obamas touch goes gay from military to Target.....

I am one of the few people out there pushing the uncomfortable truth that our prez is gayer than a three dolla bill and his "wife" is actually a dude.

Wonder if she complained to management that their bathroom policy was too

This country has gone down the transvestite crapper......

This is just one of the ways to identify them.  They always offer salvation - a FAKE form of it, while downplaying or outright denying the true source of it.

Folks - please do your best to trumpet good principle.  We are in the heat of the battle for the hearts and minds of a confused populace.  I just SMH at the 30% of BYU students who would be willing to have Bernie (satan is my hero) Sanders in office.  I have no words to describe my dismay.  This is the generation that sinks the ship - a complete disaster.....


Wow - I forgot about this.....:
"We of this Church know something of such groups. The Book of Mormon speaks of the Gadianton robbers, a vicious, oath-bound, and secret organization bent on evil and destruction. In their day they did all in their power, by whatever means available, to bring down the Church, to woo the people with sophistry, and to take control of the society. We see the same thing in the present situation."
Goes nicely with those earlier articles on the blog.


I got this off FB.  Quite interesting as this phenom only happens once in 6,000 years and it happens on Sept 23, 2017 at the end of the 50th, 50th Jubilee (by some counts).  :


14 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.

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth w
ater as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.


Some people smoke a little too much mary jane and have over-active imaginations.  Sometimes this is the result.  Were it not for the statement by Spencer, I might never give any of this credence.  I just put it on probation and wait for additional corroborating evidence.

We shall see:

Could Antarctica really have an entire inhabited city underground?New Swabia (German: Neuschwabenland) is an area of Antarctica between 20°E and 10°W in Queen Maud Land. It was explored by the German Antarctic Expedition (1938–1939) which discovered ice-free areas with warm fresh-water lakes and vegetation. In 1943, German Navy Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz stated:

"The German submarine fleet is proud of having built for the Führer in another part of the world a Shangri-La on land, an impregnable fortress."

While it is widely accepted that the Nazis were defeated with the German Government's formal surrender in 1945, this is only partly true. The media is largely controlled by the Rothschild banking dynasty, and has promoted a false narrative concerning the events of WW2 for the past 70 years.

Hitler's body was never recovered, and no Nazi party member ever signed any documents of surrender. That is why, after the Allies claimed unconditional victory, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal sent a naval task force, called “Operation Highjump,” to Antarctica, including Admiral Nimitz, Admiral Krusen and Admiral Byrd. Over 4,700 military troops from the U.S., Britain and Australia, consisting of three Naval battle groups departed on December 2, 1946.

The US military and intelligence were apparently trying to locate the immense underground facility constructed by the Germans, before, during and immediately after the Second World War (Section-211). The base was likely used to further their research and successful development of advanced propulsion technology, based on universal free energy.

According to first hand testimonials from crew members participating in Operation Highjump, including an interview given by Admiral Byrd himself, the Antarctic Nazis developed their saucer-shaped discs far in advance of anything possessed by the U.S. They swiftly defeated the massive "post WW2" military attack by Allied forces.

Top Secret maps obtained by the KGB and belonging to the Third Reich have been leaked on the internet which allegedly depict passages under the Antarctic ice used by German U-Boats to access mysterious underground polar caverns.

The possibility that the earth contains massive subterranean caverns, or is at least partially hollow, that these regions are accessible through passages at the poles, and that ancient secret breakaway civilizations flourish within them, has renewed people's interest in a subject still considered by the media to be taboo. Could the Earth really have entire inhabited cities underground that we are unaware of on the surface?


I was thinking a little bit more about this detail.

In every scriptural example where there is an appearance of the Father with the Son, whether it be before or whether it be after The Fall, the appearances always demonstrate Jesus on the right hand of the Father.  Never on the left hand side.

It is my PERSONAL belief that, prior to the rebellion in Heaven, when Lucifer was still in the good graces of the Father (and had NOT violated immutable eternal principles of Agency - therefore becoming satan), his place - a place of honor - was on the left hand of the Father as a Prince and a Pre-eminent One;  the Light Bearer.  Respected and honored by all.  Once he formed in his heart to rebel and lead away others who loved their lives to the death (did not want to gamble in failure in the coming mortal sojourn) and became filled with pride, then rebellion, then rage and hatred, he was cast out with a sweep of the left hand and the word of Father.

When you have the Priesthood and are exercising it in righteousness, a sweep of the left hand has GREAT power when casting the trash to the curb.  There is no sweep of the right hand - in fact, the right hand is used for making covenants with God, through Jesus Christ.

So, I just wanted to point out the left versus the right.  The same applies to "leftist" political principles and so much else.  Left bad.  Right good.  We live in a bi-polar world - with an entire spectrum in between.

One last thing - when you are an elder or pre-eminent one (this could be a parent, grand-parent, older sibling, Apostle - Judas/Cowdery, President, teacher, Bishop, Branch President, Snuffer etc, etc), there is a certain burden that is borne in that your influence is that much greater, as is your ability to do good - and evil in the abuse of that position.  The ability to lead others who are more innocent or more prone to follow versus form their own opinion places a greater burden on those people.  I prefer to lead (of sorts) from an anonymous perspective - and place a disclaimer on that "leadership" or "stepping out" by telling people to form their own opinions and seek confirmation from the Spirit.

I was in Flight Test for two years spending a bunch of time in the jump seat.

I have flown for four hours in a 777 fully functional full cab 5 axis hydraulic flight simulator that my company trains the pilots in and I know enough to know this guy is right.  I only have ground school under my belt and have not flown general aviation or commercial planes - but knew enough from what experience I have to be able to quite sloppily get a 777 in the air and back on the ground without complete airframe loss (just a tail strike).

We may have been duped, folks on the twin towers ......:

I can say with 100 percent certainty that building 7 did not collapse from fire - but due to implosion.  The Pentagon was attacked by a missile - NOT a plane.  Terrible hoax.

There will be rebellion when the truth comes out.  This may be part of the deception that has been prophesied will come out and cause the people to rise up against the gubmint that screwed them over to suck us into useless wars that cause us to spend our strength and means and bankrupt us, while enriching the gads who thought they could pull a fast one on a gullible populace......


I like to see synopses of this stuff.  I do not watch the news; I make my own:



When you have something difficult to accomplish, picture yourself summiting the challenge and conquering.  When I was throwing the discus in high school, I always pictured myself with the discus leaving the finger tips in the perfect plane so it would actually spin correctly and hover all the way to record throws.  My best were in the high 150's and unofficially (not a meet) in the mid 160's.  I would picture myself confidently and calmly taking a test with perfect results.  I would picture myself crossing the finish line first and only had a few black kids from Rainier Beach (Seattle) beat me in the AA runs my Senior year.  I even pictured myself kissing the beauty that was my first official girlfriend when I was 17.   When it went down - it was the most natural thing ever - and she liked it so much she joined the Church a few months later (joke).

Thoughts become words.  Words become actions.  Actions become habits.  Habits form your character.  Character defines your eternities.

We need to literally picture ourselves in the arms of the Savior or coming to the judgment bar before God.  If we cannot see it in our mind's eye, then we need to define what is tripping us up and focus on that first.  Then go back there in the mind's eye - picture it again.  Find the next thing.  Keep on going until you have knocked down all obstacles.  This is the definition of striving.  Even if your eternal flame is dimmed to the point of near complete extinguishment, the desire alone is enough to get the journey started.

Here is the epic statement in the Book of Mormon:

14 And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty change in your hearts?
 15 Do ye exercise faith in the redemption of him who created you? Do you look forward with an eye of faith, and view this mortal body raised in immortality, and this corruption raised in incorruption, to stand before God to be judged according to the deeds which have been done in the mortal body?
 16 I say unto you, can you imagine to yourselves that ye hear the voice of the Lord, saying unto you, in that day: Come unto me ye blessed, for behold, your works have been the works of righteousness upon the face of the earth?
 17 Or do ye imagine to yourselves that ye can lie unto the Lord in that day, and say—Lord, our works have been righteous works upon the face of the earth—and that he will save you?
 18 Or otherwise, can ye imagine yourselves brought before the tribunal of God with your souls filled with guilt and remorse, having a remembrance of all your guilt, yea, a perfect remembrance of all your wickedness, yea, a remembrance that ye have set at defiance the commandments of God?
 19 I say unto you, can ye look up to God at that day with a pure heart and clean hands? I say unto you, can you look up, having the image of God engraven upon your countenances?
 20 I say unto you, can ye think of being saved when you have yielded yourselves to become subjects to the devil?
 21 I say unto you, ye will know at that day that ye cannot be saved; for there can no man be saved except his garments are washed white; yea, his garments must be purified until they are cleansed from all stain, through the blood of him of whom it has been spoken by our fathers, who should come to redeem his people from their sins.
 22 And now I ask of you, my brethren, how will any of you feel, if ye shall stand before the bar of God, having your garments stained with blood and all manner of filthiness? Behold, what will these things testify against you?
 23 Behold will they not testify that ye are murderers, yea, and also that ye are guilty of all manner of wickedness?
 24 Behold, my brethren, do ye suppose that such an one can have a place to sit down in the kingdom of God, with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob, and also all the holy prophets, whose garments are cleansed and are spotless, pure and white?
 25 I say unto you, Nay; except ye make our Creator a liar from the beginning, or suppose that he is a liar from the beginning, ye cannot suppose that such can have place in the kingdom of heaven; but they shall be cast out for they are the children of the kingdom of the devil.
 26 And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?
 27 Have ye walked, keeping yourselves blameless before God? Could ye say, if ye were called to die at this time, within yourselves, that ye have been sufficiently humble? That your garments have been cleansed and made white through the blood of Christ, who will come to redeem his people from their sins?
 28 Behold, are ye stripped of pride? I say unto you, if ye are not ye are not prepared to meet God. Behold ye must prepare quickly; for the kingdom of heaven is soon at hand, and such an one hath not eternal life.
 29 Behold, I say, is there one among you who is not stripped of envy? I say unto you that such an one is not prepared; and I would that he should prepare quickly, for the hour is close at hand, and he knoweth not when the time shall come; for such an one is not found guiltless.
 30 And again I say unto you, is there one among you that doth make a mock of his brother, or that heapeth upon him persecutions?
 31 Wo unto such an one, for he is not prepared, and the time is at hand that he must repent or he cannot be saved!
 32 Yea, even wo unto all ye workers of iniquity; repent, repent, for the Lord God hath spoken it!
 33 Behold, he sendeth an invitation unto all men, for the arms of mercy are extended towards them, and he saith: Repent, and I will receive you.
 34 Yea, he saith: Come unto me and ye shall partake of the fruit of the tree of life; yea, ye shall eat and drink of the bread and the waters of life freely;
 35 Yea, come unto me and bring forth works of righteousness, and ye shall not be hewn down and cast into the fire—
 36 For behold, the time is at hand that whosoever bringeth forth not good fruit, or whosoever doeth not the works of righteousness, the same have cause to wail and mourn.
 37 O ye workers of iniquity; ye that are puffed up in the vain things of the world, ye that have professed to have known the ways of righteousness nevertheless have gone astray, as sheep having no shepherd, notwithstanding a shepherd hath called after you and is still calling after you, but ye will not hearken unto his voice!
 38 Behold, I say unto you, that the good shepherd doth call you; yea, and in his own name he doth call you, which is the name of Christ; and if ye will not hearken unto the voice of the good shepherd, to the name by which ye are called, behold, ye are not the sheep of the good shepherd.
 39 And now if ye are not the sheep of the good shepherd, of what fold are ye? Behold, I say unto you, that the devil is your shepherd, and ye are of his fold; and now, who can deny this? Behold, I say unto you, whosoever denieth this is a liar and a child of the devil.
 40 For I say unto you that whatsoever is good cometh from God, and whatsoever is evil cometh from the devil.
 41 Therefore, if a man bringeth forth good works he hearkeneth unto the voice of the good shepherd, and he doth follow him; but whosoever bringeth forth evil works, the same becometh a child of the devil, for he hearkeneth unto his voice, and doth follow him.
 42 And whosoever doeth this must receive his wages of him; therefore, for his wages he receiveth death, as to things pertaining unto righteousness, being dead unto all good works.
 43 And now, my brethren, I would that ye should hear me, for I speak in the energy of my soul; for behold, I have spoken unto you plainly that ye cannot err, or have spoken according to the commandments of God.


This was an interesting line of thinking - and I would love to hear what else is out there that I have not heard on the topic.  As you may know, I believe we are on for showtime this fall

This is from a FB discussion and I said not possible (due to translated beings cannot taste death - but maybe not):

QUESTION:   Truman G. Madsen said in a talk at BYU in 1977 that Elijah and Enoch would be the two witnesses in Israel. Thought that was interesting. Both are translated.
ANSWER:  As far as I am understanding this explanation and the prophecy in the scriptures, a translated being will experience pain AND death right before their resurrection and the prophecy of them laying in the streets dead for 3 days happens 'right before' He comes. Notice the word UNTIL. I found all this on lds. org too so, straight from the source wink emoticon

3 Nephi 28:9–10, 36–40. The Doctrine of Translation
The following definitions help clarify the doctrines of translation, transfiguration, and resurrection. Notice the difference between translated beings and the more temporary state of transfiguration:
Translated beings. “Persons who are changed so that they do not experience pain or death until their resurrection to immortality” (Guide to the Scriptures, “Translated Beings”).

“Many have supposed that the doctrine of translation was a doctrine whereby men were taken immediately into the presence of God, and into an eternal fullness, but this is a mistaken idea. Their place of habitation is that of the terrestrial order, and a place prepared for such characters He held in reserve to be ministering angels unto many planets, and who as yet have not entered into so great a fullness as those who are resurrected from the dead” (Joseph Smith, History of the Church, 4:210). (Copied and pasted from Book of Mormon Student Study Manuel-Alma 46)

Hey, I like this. Maybe I can do another blog on the side with all my spare time, called "Ask Grumps"..... It would be a take-off of "Ask Gramps" - but I would provide snide/sarcastic answers that burn the ex-mo crowd and the haters out


I cannot wait until the trash is taken to the curb (including the source of sickness) and we live in a perfect world with perfect rights to self-determination.

I have an ex-mo BIL who says I have a cult-like following on my brain-wash blog where I rail against pedophiles, evil and conspiring men (who push mary jane, pornography and alcohol on people who are too weak to resist it and have fallen into addiction), corrupt politicians who sound more and more every day like the soul-sucking chumps in the Book of Mormon (which we all know is not a manual for navigating a corrupt and war-torn world - but a delusion put out there to confuse and enslave people into following old 'senile' men......) and so much else.  This blog pushing the tenets of a faith that teach a man how to be a man and try to have a good, intact marriage so that women do not turn into bitter, old cat-ladies who despise men and men who turn into porn-addicted philanderers who chase any skirt that comes along.  A church that teaches that a man should do his "duty" and date his wife once a week (where possible) and follow the teachings of Section 121 and honor his Priesthood (Section 84 and 124).  A church that teaches that families can be a forever unit if people strive to love/serve each other and maintain a value set that makes being around each other actually fun and an enjoyable experience because people are striving (and yet failing, at times) to live the above principles.  A church that teaches that there is a purpose to life - not just to go out and make money and consume, consume, consume until you drop dead in an empty, hollow stupor in your late 70's.  A church whose teachings push the idea that your body is a temple and an abode for a sanctified spirit - that we are spiritual beings having a mortal experience; not the other way around.

Yep, so my cult-like following (almost at 2.5 million hits!) simply comes from a people who are weary of a world where things are broken and I speak of the hope that there is in strict obedience in following the life of our Savior and in the hope of Him ushering in the greatest phase of this earth's history since it's inception.  A thousand years of peace and prosperity that will be even greater than Enoch's run at the record - and we happen to have front row seats for that eclipsing event.  We QUALIFIED for this - and that we need to rise to our full stature and fight the evil and those who push the opposite agenda.  It is a real battle - and a fierce one.  People that are hungry for that news and cheer-leading against the evil?  That is my cult following.....

If you love evil - carry on with the blathering on the ex-mo sites whilst your hope and future and that of your family fades like the hoar frost in the morning sun.  The only hope is in the resurrection and forgiveness of sin - through Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.  Period.

Oh, and I speak out against vaccine hell.  More of those secret combinations that have been raised to destroy our health and well-being and bring us into bondage as a people.  Heather Jackson knocks another one out of the ball-park.  Man, I love that gal (agape love).  What a lioness of the Lord we have in her - and she is just a regular person, just living up to her potential that God has instilled in her:

'But the church says we should vaccinate...' No, the church has no official policy on vaccinations and you can call church headquarters and find this out for yourselves. The church does, however, encourage vaccines in countries with lower standards of health & hygiene.
If you have allergies, eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, joint pain, asthma, digestive problems, diabetes, seizures, Tourette's, etc, you may be able to thank a vaccine for that. They are all side effects listed on the vaccine information inserts (that parents almost never read).
Allergies to ingredients in vaccinations are more common than you might think. How many people do you know that are allergic to peanuts, milk, eggs, fish, beef, latex, household cleaners, etc? THEY are allergic to vaccines as well and probably have no idea. And for most with compromised immune systems, etc. that should not receive vaccines, it is becoming increasingly difficult to receive a waiver in such a forced vaccination environment. Doctors are turning away patients, with sincere health concerns, because they aren't allowed by their insurance to have clients that aren't vaccinated.
Receiving vaccines does NOT always equal immunity anyway. If you read the informational inserts most state that the vaccine will only lessen your symptoms if you contract the illness... and for a bonus, most will make you contagious to those around you for the next 3 weeks (it's called shedding).
And I won't even get into how real life secret combinations are involved in the ever growing vaccination movement. Just know that Agenda 21 & Agenda 2030 are actual United Nations agendas and depopulation is a conspiracy fact.

This community organizer just needs to go home and get out of the whorehouse.....

Speaking of which, sounds like Theodore sCruz is just about out of there.  Glad to see the nasally gasbag is almost gone from the political landscape.  Phew!  Now we just have to deal with a brash, bull in the political china shop in Trump......  At least he was open about his philandering with his second wife.  I can at least respect transparency for those who are in a position of trust - even if they are not perfect.

Here is the article:

Coptic Christians believed that the devil and Jesus were brothers of a common Heavenly Father.  I cannot name how much grief I have taken over my belief in this.  The ex-mos love to go to town on this LDS belief.  Same thing of the groups my lead at work belongs to.

Fascinating little details:

Time and research.  My ally.....


I am skipping around on this because I have to go joust with my windmill - but this would be a good Tuesday night listening before bed:

This shows the amazing connection to copper, tin and trade with Europe.


I thought this was interesting - matches what we already know is coming:
TD Hale’s Dreams Tell the Future of America The following is a transcript of an interview with Pastor TD Hale from Calvary Christian Center in Galipolis, Ohio. In the interview, Pastor Hale describes the details of two dreams that he received from the Lord. The first dream was on December 28, 2011. The second dream was the very next night.
The interview was conducted on March 27, 2012 by Rick Wiles, and was broadcast on You can listen to the interview here.
With the situation that we see going on in America, with the president and the administration certainly there are warning signs coming up. On December 28, 2011, I had been seeking the Lord for a word to give to our assembly. I went to bed that night just like any other night. The Lord just really dealt with me in the middle of the night concerning things that were coming.
I certainly was shocked when I saw what I saw. In the dream I began to see myself going across America. I was floating, suspended in the air going across America. I had no fear about what I was seeing. Then all of a sudden I began to see bombs had landed everywhere. The land was totally destroyed.
It looked like things were totally just wiped off, grass, trees, everything. Everything was gone, burned. There was nothing left. There was nothing on the trees. There was just total disaster. I don’t know if it was everywhere but it was everywhere that I could see, from the point I was at.
When I saw this I saw people standing around their homes and things that were left, holding onto each other. I saw people that laid dead, and I heard the cries of the people saying, “This should never have happened, this should never have happened.”
It was like they just kept saying it over and over again, “This should never have happened, oh Lord, this should never have happened.”
You could tell that life had changed. There was no food. There was no water. I could see babies crying, grownups, men all crying, holding onto their families. They were begging God for mercy. As I moved along I saw people running, looking for their loved ones who were missing and they were completely, completely out of their minds. Insanity had taken over.
I could see people slinging themselves off of bridges, committing suicide. It was just so vivid what I could see.
Then I came over a big city that looked like Columbus, Ohio. That is when all of a sudden I saw mass hysteria, riots and all kinds of things breaking out in the streets of the city. There were windows being busted. There were people just grabbing things left and right. But when I saw it, I did not see them grabbing things like TVs and electronics. They were grabbing food. They were grabbing chips. They were grabbing water. They were grabbing anything they could get in their hands to sustain their lives. It was all about survival. I could tell that this was different from riots that we have seen in the past.
They had come into the stores by the thousands, as many as could come in. I saw them pushing shelves over and pushing electronics aside. They were trying to grab the food, the bread, the cases of water. They were seeking everything they could get for survival.
The rioters were fighting among themselves. I saw one man grab a gun out of his pocket and shoot another man right in the head.
The next part of the dream was the most startling for me. As I left that place, I was going like at the speed of light. I found myself standing on the backside of the White House. As I stood there I looked up. I heard a voice say, “Look up to the Truman balcony.” I knew what a balcony was, but I did not know the balcony had a name. I did not know that there was a Truman balcony until I later shared this with a friend who told me there is a balcony by that name at the White House. In my mind, I believe the Lord identified that to let me know that my dream was from the Lord.
I saw the president of United States, President Obama, standing on the balcony and I saw in his hands a shotgun. All of a sudden, to my left hand side I heard a loud scream, real loud. When I turned my head to see where the scream was coming from I saw flying high in the air was a majestic eagle flying in the air around Washington DC. I knew that scream. I knew it was an eagle.
I saw all of a sudden the president of United States point that shotgun and shot that eagle dead and it fell to the ground. When it did I looked back up at him and he just had a smile on his face like a smirk. And these were the words I heard in the dream, “I’ve done it and I won’t have to deal with this in my administration.”
Then there was dead silence. Then I heard a voice say “Tell the people that this is my will, that this is my hand, this is the hand of the Almighty both upon the generation of the righteous and the cursed. The righteous will find their way and will know what to do. The cursed will wander around with no compass because the cup is full.”
There will be people running around saying we don’t understand why these things are happening, but people need to understand that God has everything under control. The Lord let me know that this is his will. This is his hand upon the righteous and the cursed and we have to accept that.
It amazes me how people have their heads buried in the sand when God is sending so many warnings to people through all kinds of His servants and yet they still will not believe. It is just like in the Bible (with ancient Israel). God sent the prophets and warned them there is going to come destruction, there’s going to come to come trouble, the nations are going to come in and take over. But the people said, “No that’s not going to happen, God is not going to let that happen. God won’t do something like that.” But then it did happen. Then the people went back to God and apologized to him and said we are sorry, but it was too late.
It is like people have fallen asleep. They don’t have a prayer life. They constantly just go on as if nothing is going to happen. They act like life is going to continue on as it is, like America is going to continue on as it is, and there is no urgency. They have their heads buried in the sand, but God is saying “it is time to wake up. Things are getting ready to happen. It is going to move at a fast rate. It is time to get a prayer life back.”
At that point in the dream I knew we were coming to a showdown between good versus evil. I saw people gathering in their homes and there were prayer meetings. People were praying in the spirit. Then I heard the Lord say, “Tell my servants and my handmaidens a special anointing will reside on you in the last days. Hold not back your voices but speak your hearts for out of them come the issues of life. Pick up the mantle of prayer and cover yourselves in a secret place of prayer. Your eyes will be anointed with a special anointing. There will be others who will be blinded to my word. All things will be revealed in their due course. There will be a supernatural wave of the spirit that will come over this generation very soon.”
The final voices are in the land to speak one last time. Yet through the ministries of tapes and DVDs and books that people would have in their possession that God will give them that spiritual food to sustain them during these times that are coming upon us. The Lord said, “There are harsh days coming.”
All of a sudden, things changed in the dream and I began to hear a voice, the voice of God. I saw in front of me a very old antique table. I knew there had been documents signed on this table, special documents. I am hesitant to say this but I saw a voting ballot laying there on the table. As I looked at the ballot I saw two names on it. I saw the President’s name and I saw Mitt Romney’s name on it. Then all of a sudden I looked and I saw the president of United States name check marked. I knew then what that meant. I looked at the ballot and I saw written on the ballot, “This is the will of the Lord.” Then I woke up.
America’s days are numbered. The handwriting is on the wall. I am telling my church to be prepared and to get their house in order. I am telling them that whatever they need to do for their families do it quickly.
The very next night I had a second dream in which I saw the American people going into slavery. In this dream I came upon a wooded area where I saw some people that were camping. They were not camping like we normally think. They were hiding. They were all standing by their tents. There were two tents. The people looked tattered. They looked like they had not taken a bath in ages. There were gallon jugs of water and they were trying to light a fire but they didn’t want to bring attention to themselves. But they had already been found out.
I saw some federal officials coming up around and they took these families. They handcuffed the adults and took them to the cars, and they took their children with them. I also saw two elderly people and they took them and put them in the car. I saw the federal agents and they said “We are from the United States government and you are under arrest.”
I knew that these people had been running to get away from being arrested. They took these people to some kind of a processing place. I was standing in front of this building where I watched them being taken in and processed. To me, it was like I was looking at the days of Hitler again. The building looked like it had been modernized and updated and painted, but it looked tattered and things were very run down. I knew they were old military bases that had been shut down. I saw them take the people inside where they were being processed. I even saw them being fingerprinted.
I saw rail cars that came up beside this place. I did not go into the rail cars so I did not see inside them. That frightened me. It really disturbed me. I knew America was in trouble when I saw that. I knew we were headed down a path that was not going to be turned around.
I felt like I had entered into a death camp. What I saw literally sickened me. I knew that America was about to change.
An interesting point about TD Hale is that when he saw Barack Obama for the very first time back in 2004, the Lord showed him Obama would eventually become the president. So he got that right. Also, the dreams were given to him in December 2011, which was about six months before Mitt Romney secured the Republican nomination. Pastor Hale saw Mitt Romney’s name on the ballot in the 2012 election so he got that right too.
At the time of this posting, it is Nov 2, 2012. The election is now only four days away. We will know then whether or not Pastor Hale’s dream is correct regarding the outcome of the election. If Obama wins then Pastor Hale’s track record remains good. If not, this post will likely not stay on my site and I will be left wondering where this dream came from.
The first dream has four parts:
1. Scene One – total destruction from bombs
2. Scene Two – mass riots in a large city in America
3. Scene Three – President Obama shooting the American eagle
4. Scene Four – election ballots with Obama winning re-election
Since we are just four days away from the election, it is safe to say the scenes are not in chronological order. In fact, my guess is they are in reverse chronological order. So my comments are listed below in reverse order.
Scene Four: This is very straightforward, Obama gets re-elected. The current polls show the race is very close. We will know in a few days whether or not the dream was accurate.
Scence Three: At some point after the election, Obama completes his destruction of our constitutional form of government and the freedoms we enjoy. It sounds like Obama will take over as a dictator at that point.
Scene Two: Many other prophetic voices have already warned about mass riots coming to America including John Paul Jackson, Terry Bennett, Shane Warren, and others. The dream did not provide any details on the timing, which is why it is important to note that John Paul Jackson connects the riots with the election. He said the riots would come because there was going to be such a furor over the election and over the fact that the American dollar has become worthless. The riots ultimately lead to martial law in many parts of America, with most of the violence and suffering concentrated in large urban areas. If you are living in the downtown area of a large city it would probably be a good idea to move out to a rural area. It would also be a good idea to stock up on canned foods, rice, beans, water, batteries, cash, and things like that. It sounds like a massive disruption is coming to our food and water supplies. Rick Joyner from Morningstar Ministries says he believes the worst part of it will last about three months and in some areas it will be less than that. Grocery stores get wiped out fast in panic situations so it is important to act before the crisis starts.
Scene One: This is very disturbing. TD Hale did not know what part of the country was hit or if all of it was hit. John Paul Jackson said a dirty bomb will explode in a coastal city making it uninhabitable for over 30 years. He also saw the tunnels that run under water in a large American city were completely filled with water. Others have seen missiles striking several large cities bringing massive destruction. No dates are provided so we do not know if this happens during the Obama administration or perhaps years later or even decades later. As with any prophetic words, we only see part of the picture. It is very important to avoid drawing conclusions beyond the details revealed to us. That only leads to misinterpreting the revelation. It is clear that this is a warning to all who have ears to hear in America. God is calling us to repent of our sins and turn to Him. John Paul Jackson said the Lord told him things will continue to get worse until we do that.
TD Hale’s second dream is also very disturbing. Others have shared similar words about American citizens being forced into concentration camps. It sounds similar to the horrible camps now used in North Korea and the Nazi camps from World War 2.
There are no dates provided so this might be very soon or it could also be years away. Based on other prophetic words received by other people, my guess is we have at least a few years before the concentration camps come. This is only a guess and could be way off. However, the reason I say that is because other prophets have indicated 2012 was the beginning of the great harvest of lost souls and that the harvest period would last about 12-15 years. The harvest will require lots of laborers so all believers cannot be locked up. Of course, it is also possible that concentration camps occur during the harvest season with some believers locked up while others are still free to bring in the harvest. This is the great harvest of the last days. We are blessed to live during these times. What an honor to be chosen by God to live during this awesome time.
My advice is to stay close to the Lord, just as Pastor Hale said. Spend time in prayer. Stay filled with the Spirit. Take no regard for your own life. Be bold to speak whatever God puts in your heart. Your words are life or death to those around you. God bless you fellow soldiers! TD Hale’s 4th Prophetic Dream: Rain of Fire Coming to America This is the fourth prophetic dream received by Pastor TD Hale regarding the future of America. TD Hale is pastor of Calvary Christian Center in Gallipolis, Ohio.
The following is the transcript of two interviews of Pastor TD Hale conducted by Rick Wiles from on January 2 and January 3, 2013. Comments by Pastor TD Hale are provided at the end of this article to help interpret the dream.
A transcript of the first two dreams is available here. Parts of those dreams have been fulfilled but most of it remains in the future. If you do not already know about the first two dreams I recommend that you read that transcript before reading this one because parts of this dream are continuations of those dreams.
The third dream was received by Pastor Hale in the summer of 2012 and was a revelation of how Mitt Romney was going to be blocked from being elected President. Obviously that dream was fulfilled already.
This dream was given to me on November 24, 2012. In this dream I was immediately taken into the oval office. I was standing in the oval office looking at the President of United States. It was so real that I felt like I could reach my hand out and touch the man. He was standing behind the desk. When I stood in front of him all of a sudden I heard a voice and I knew it was the voice of God. I heard the voice say, “Weep and howl for the misery that shall come shortly.”
Then all of a sudden I turned and when I turned I saw there on the floor of the oval office was that eagle that I saw him shoot back in the dream I had in December, 2011. I saw the president walk behind the desk with that same smirk, that same arrogant smirk on his face that he had on the Truman balcony in my other dream. He came out from behind the desk and he walked over to the eagle and he put his foot on the neck of the eagle. Then at this point he bent down and he took it by its head and then he twisted it three times until the head of the eagle came off of its body. Then at that point I heard a voice say, “The spirit of Rehoboam.”
As I began to look at him again he was dressed in all black. He had a black suit on, a black tie, a black shirt, black pants, everything was total black that I saw him wearing. Then as I was looking directly at him all of a sudden his chest cavity around his heart began to open up. His heart was exposed and as I was looking at his heart this thick black dark mist was swirling around his heart and I knew that God was letting me see the evil that is really in that man.
Now at this point he walked over to the desk and he picked up a gavel in his hand. The gavel was part wood and part stone. The handle was wood and the head of the gavel was stone. On the desk of the president of United States there is a document with these words written on it, “The final abomination.” He then hit the document on his desk with the gavel and when he hit this document on the desk then all of a sudden I felt a shaking. Honestly, I felt like my bed was shaking. Literally it was shaking and I could feel it. When he hit this document I shot up into the air and I was standing up above the White House.
Then an earthquake hit Washington DC. Then I saw the earth open up and it went towards the Washington monument then towards the Jefferson Memorial. At that point I began to see an odd colored rain falling. It was the color of fire or something. It started slowly coming down then it intensified little by little. It was coming down faster and faster until the waters started rising. As the waters started rising I went up higher into the atmosphere and I saw the map of the United States. I could see the outline. The waters left Washington and began to flood across the whole United States. I saw them hit Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, South Carolina, until it completely went all across the United States.
People began to scream across the nation and all I could hear was a mournful sound. It was as if something had happened, a great loss, like if you went into a funeral home and somebody had passed away and you were very close to them. It was that kind of mournful sound. Even in my dream I thought about the days of Noah and what it must have felt like for the people who were outside of the ark when the flood came but they could not get in. They had not listened to the voice of Noah or to the voice of God when he had spoken to them. This is the thing. God is speaking to them one last time. He is speaking through, he is speaking through you, he is speaking through me, and some other ministers that I know. God is speaking.
As I was in the air I saw America in this state of being covered with these flood waters. Then all of a sudden as I was suspended in the air I could see these beams of light quickly coming up out of the flood waters. Like at the speed of light they were quickly going up into the air. There were millions it looked like. Then at that moment I was taken higher above the earth and I could see the round earth and all over the earth I started seeing those lights shooting up all over the world. Then I came back down to the earth as if I was back at the beginning of this dream. Then I heard a voice say, “The shifting has begun.”
At this point I was looking over the top, I was going across the top of several churches in America. These were mega-churches. I saw them as I was going across them from the top of one to the other. I saw the names of the churches and the names of their leaders. I heard a voice say, “A breeding ground for sin for the people know not Me but they play around their golden calf.”
I knew that we had entered into the time of the end. It will not be these large churches but it will be home prayer meetings where the saints will be gathering in secret and praying. This is going to get to the point where we are going to have to meet in secret. The days of persecution had come upon this generation.
The Lord let me know a long time ago that there would be a remnant that would be called out. There would be a little here and a little there. Some of these mega-churches are not going to be around anymore. They are going to be shut down. God is going to have some people here and there who are going to be praying in secret. So speak in the last days because of the persecution that will come upon this generation.
At this point I was looking again at the homes. I knew that these people loved and served God with all of their heart. I saw the homes of men and women that were gathered together in deep intercessory prayer across the nation and then I heard a voice say, “The season is upon this nation because you have set abomination before my eyes, I will set judgment before yours.”
Then I asked the Lord, “When will this happen?”
I heard the voice answer, “After he is sworn in.” Then I woke up.
The comments shown below were made by Pastor TD Hale and were transcribed from the same two interviews on His comments provide his interpretation of the different parts of the dream.
I had to go back and start searching this guy out. What was interesting about Rehoboam in the Bible is that first of all, of course he was the successor to Solomon on the throne, his name means “he enlarges the people.” Automatically when I saw that I thought big government… spend, spend, spend. So he was the successor to Solomon and he was young when he was put on the throne. Although he was acknowledged as the rightful heir of the throne, yet there was a strongly felt desire to modify the character of the government. I thought that was interesting. The burden of taxation that they were subjected to during Solomon’s reign was oppressive but it was going to get really oppressive.
In 1 Kings chapter 12, the people gathered together at Shechem and demanded that Rehoboam reduce their taxes. Rehoboam consulted with the younger generation and instead of reducing their taxes he increased them. The interesting thing is that the Scripture says he consulted with the younger generation that he had grown up with. He would not listen to the advice of the elders. He answered the people haughtily. He told them you have been whipped with whips but now you will be whipped with scorpions. We are going to put more pressure on you and more trouble on you.
The Lord told me that this same spirit of Rehoboam is on Barack Obama. Look at all the young people that rallied around Obama and put him in office. Like Rehoboam, Obama is listening to the voice of younger people, people he grew up with, people who have no experience because they have not yet experienced life. It is like a young person saying you should do this and this with your child but yet he has never been a parent before. Just like Rehoboam, Obama refuses to listen to the voice of the elders.
As a result of Rehoboam’s decisions the nation of Israel was divided. He drove them to civil war all because he would not listen to the voice of the elders. It is a spirit of total rebellion. Obama has that same spirit on him. I believe that just as John the Baptist was a forerunner to Jesus Christ, I believe Obama is a forerunner helping to set up the antichrist system. The Lord told me that a long time ago. Obama is literally helping to set all of this up.
An example is what happened in Egypt and how Obama went against Mubarak there at the end of his time in power. At least under Mubarak Egypt was an ally to Israel.
I don’t trust President Obama at all. There is a darkness about him. There is a darkness around his heart. I pray that God will open Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s eyes and let him see this man. We are seeing the events of 1933 happening all over again. Obama is a mad man. People need to wake up. Right now I am just trembling all over me just talking about this because the man has an evil heart and the final abomination was on this document and I began to hear screams across the nation. People are sitting around thinking everything this man is going to do is for our betterment. They think he is going to help us and help us have a better life. I keep hearing all of these people saying things like I am going to get a higher paying job. They don’t realize what is about to happen. They have no idea that God is about ready to lower his hand on this nation.
What bothered me was that 6 million born-again Christians voted for Obama. I am thinking to myself how in the world can you call yourself a saint of God and vote for unrighteousness, a man who is putting into law abominations all the time. Yet the church world has become powerless. They have no backbone. They don’t even stand up and fight for their rights anymore. They vote more for their pocketbook.
People are putting their trust in Obama. There is a scripture in Ezekial 20:29-30 that says “Then I said to them, ‘What is the high place to which you go? So it’s name is called Bamah to this day.’ Therefore, say to the house of Israel, thus says the Lord God, “Will you defile yourselves after the manner of your fathers and play the harlot after their detestable things?”
The Hebrew word Bamah is defined as a high place of idolatrous worship. A high place is a place people put their trust in. Bamah is a place people are depending on to have their needs met.
I thought about what this abomination might be and one of the things that came to my mind is the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on the same-sex marriages, the Defense of Marriage Act. The Supreme Court might rule this act is unconstitutional, which would redefine what marriage is in America.
These are symbols and some people could interpret it literally but I see it as things that are spiritually hitting this nation. It is something that is going to be devastating. We have the Supreme Court this year picking up a case about the definition of marriage. I am thinking that we are heading into an incredible time.
I believe the falling rain that looked like fire represents judgment. I think judgment is going to start falling on America this year, next year and the year after. I don’t think it is going to be happy times. I think more people are going to go mentally insane as things begin to progress worse. When people are hungry they do crazy things. When people don’t have money they do crazy things. When they don’t have money to pay their rent and pay their bills.
This generation is totally different from the generation that lived during the great depression of the 1930’s. During the depression people tried to help one another. Today I don’t see that happening.
All I can say is something is going to transpire. And it has been. We have been seeing month after month after month things beginning to change in Washington DC.
When something shifts it moves back and forth. So we are getting ready to move from what is happening now to something in this dream. The mega-churches are going to shift deeper into apostasy. It is going to get to the point in America where these churches will just accept anything. When the new laws are put into effect, we are going to all see pastors will be required to marry homosexual couples.
We have several of these pastors of these mega-churches going on television saying things like, “Well, I’m not sure if homosexuality is wrong. Gays might get to go to heaven.”
They say things like, “I don’t know if Jesus is the only way. There are different ways to get to God and Christ is not the only way.”
We are seeing these ministers beginning to deny the scriptures. They are compromising. So that is why God said “A breeding ground for sin because the people know not me but they are playing around their golden calf.”
After Obama is sworn in for his second term (January 21, 2013) these things will begin to escalate and we will see these things begin to move and come to pass.
Here are Pastor TD Hale’s thoughts on what believers need to do in response to this prophetic warning:
1. Pray, pray, pray.
2. Don’t be afraid. Just stand up and voice it. We are at the end.
3. Prepare however you feel led by the Lord to do.
4. Pray for the peace of Israel.
The rain of fire and resulting flood waters spreading across America sounds a lot like another prophetic dream received by Dr. Erik Castleberg. These two dreams appear to be slightly different descriptions of the same events.
The only timing given to TD Hale in this dream is that these things will begin to happen after President Obama’s second inauguration, which is now less than two weeks away. However, that does not really tell us when we will see these things happening. It might be soon after the inauguration or it might be months or even years. With all prophetic words it is wise to avoid rushing to conclusions that go beyond the information we have been given.
Even without these prophetic warnings, there are plenty of natural warning signs. President Obama is already trampling on our Constitution by choosing not to execute laws like the Defense of Marriage Act, by refusing to enforce immigration laws, by filing lawsuits against states who attempt to enforce existing immigration laws, by issuing executive orders that cross the boundaries of his constitutional authority, by authorizing the use of military force against Libya without Congressional approval, and on and on and on. It is therefore not hard to believe the events in TD Hale’s prophecy could happen.
To get our country back on the right path again, I have been a big believer in the instructions given in 2nd Chronicles 7:13-14.
If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2nd Chronicles 7:13-14)
However, based on TD Hale’s prophecy and the prophetic dream given to Erik Castleberg, it sounds like our country might have already crossed the point of no return. It sounds like judgment is already set and is coming very soon. Even if that is true, I still believe the best thing we can do is draw close to the Lord and turn away from our own sins.
If you are attending a church like the ones Pastor TD Hale saw in his dream, a church that waters down the scriptures to appease the people, a church that aligns more with the spirit of the world than with the Spirit of God, a church that has a form of godliness but denies the power of God, my advice is to get out of there immediately and find a church, no matter how small, that preaches the whole truth of the word of God without compromise.
The Lord has a long track record of delivering the righteous from trouble, even when there is trouble all around them. No matter what happens, I believe He will continue to protect and provide for all who walk with Him, obeying His commandments. To see God’s promises for protecting His people, I recommend reading the extended edition of Psalm 91.


This is a custom that goes so far back - and I just asked my Jewish friend who is up from Long Beach for a week and is hoteling in our cube farm.  The question was about the prayer that is said by his group, right before prayers.

You can see the ebb and flow of a culture based on food.  My favorite example is the Italians with spaghetti and ravioli and the Chinese with noodles and wantons (Marco Polo).

With this breaking of bread, there is a lot of history - and with the dispersion of the Jews, it became general.  I love the statement in this article that talks about the Catholic church trying to divorce itself from Judaism......  I just laugh at the "Christians" who shudder at the statement I always make the Jesus was a Rabbi.  It just frosts them - send them cold; so I do it with abandon.  Nothing worse than telling someone the cold, hard truth, eh??  Does em good.

Breaking of Bread the Jewish Understanding
By: Luana Fabri
Baruch ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha'olam, hamotzi lechem, min ha aretz." "Blessed are You, O LORD our God, King of the Universe, Who has brought forth bread from the earth." At the beginning of the family meal, this blessing is said as the bread is broken. The blessing is referred to as "the breaking of bread".
Sharing meals is a very important part of Jewish family and community life. So important, that special blessings are said at the start and end of the meal. The term "breaking bread" is mentioned several times in the New Testament writings. It is important that we take a look at what it means in Jewish life, to "break bread".
The "breaking of bread" is something which is done only in the context of a meal. In fact, the Talmud (Jewish Oral Law), uses the term only in reference to the blessing at the start of the meal. The one who says the blessing over the bread is referred to as the one who "breaks bread". At every meal, it was, and is the custom to have bread and wine. The blessings over the bread and wine are said at the beginning of the meal. The one who recited the blessing, did so while literally breaking the bread. Following are some examples of this from the Talmud (the quotations are exact) :
Our Rabbis taught: A man should not break bread for visitors unless he eats with them, but he may break bread for his children and the members of his household so as to train them in the performance of religious duties. I.e., recite the blessing. Talmud - Mas. Rosh HaShana 29b
R. Abba said: On the Sabbath it is one's duty to break bread over two loaves... I.e., to recite the blessing. Talmud - Mas. Chullin 7b
It is related of R. Phinehas b. Jair that never in his life did he say grace over a piece of bread which was not his own; Lit.,'to break (bread)'. Talmud - Mas. Berachoth 39b
R. Abba said: On Sabbath one should break bread from two loaves. Lit. say blessing. Talmud - Mas. Berachoth 46a
So, in these few examples, we can see that the Jewish terminology "breaking bread", simply refers to the "blessing" at the start of the meal, or to the meal itself.
In the days of Yeshua, a 'communal meal' was a common practice, particularly among the Jewish Sect of the Essenes. The Essenes, a community living mostly in the Judean hills, were known for their absolute community of goods. Those who came into the Community, had to give all they had: there was one purse for all, and all members had expenses, clothing, and food in common. In the second chapter of the book of 'Acts', many of the believers in Messiah began to follow the Essene lifestyle, selling their belongings, having all things in common and breaking bread (sharing communal meals) from house to house: "And all believers were together and had all things in common; and those who had possessions sold them and divided to each man according to his need. And they went to the Temple every day with one accord; and at home they broke bread and received food with joy and a pure heart." 1
With the advent of Christianity in the fourth century CE, a "Communion" ritual was introduced as part of Christian worship. This ritual involved the reconstructing of the 'sacrifice of Christ', where the worshipers partook of bread and wine, which represented the body and blood of their god.
Now, within Judaism, there is no such concept as 'communion', nor has there ever been. There is no Biblical equivalent to 'Eucharist', or 'Communion ritual'. Actual, the 'communion' practice caused many severe problems for the Jews, particularly in medieval times with the strange charges of 'host desecration'. Jews were accused and executed, for allegedly profaning the communion wafer. It was imagined in Christian circles that the Jews, not content with crucifying Christ once, continued to renew the agonies of his suffering by stabbing, tormenting or burning the host. It was said that such was the intensity of their hatred, that when the host shed blood, emitted voices or took to flight, the Jews were not deterred.
The charge of host desecration was leveled against Jews over all the Christian world, frequently bringing large scale massacre.
So, if the concept of 'communion' has no Jewish root, where did the Church's ritual originate?
In the second century CE, the Roman Church officially rejected all Jewish custom and Law, stating that Christianity had nothing in common with the Jews. In order to accommodate pagans into the new Roman Empire religion, the practices and rituals of the Mystery Religions were modified to suit Christianity. Let us take a look at the origins of the "Communion Ritual" in the Mystery Religions of Babylon and Greece:
The Ritual of Communion was a ritual called 'Omophagia'. In the Greek mysteries, Dionysus (or Bacchus - his Babylonian counterpart), was one of the main deities. His birth was celebrated on December 25. He was the god of wine. His followers, called "Bacchants" , celebrated the communion ritual of Dionysus by crushing the fruit of the vine and drinking the scarlet lifeblood pressed from its flesh. They also dismembering the animal which represented Dionysus (the bull), and worshipers would tear the bull to pieces with their hands and teeth. By practicing "Omophagia" (the dismemberment of the sacrificial victim and eating the flesh and drinking the blood), it was believed the worshiper absorbed the nature, or life of the god into his own. Thus, having consumed the flesh of the bull and the wine representing Dionysus, the worshipers took on his power and character. This was a communion in the god's own body and blood - to become like the god, they had to consume the god.
The second century Church took this concept and adapted it to 'Jesus'. For this reason, the miracle of communion was that the symbols of 'Jesus', the bread and wine, were believed to literally become his flesh and blood. This is called "transubstantiation", and is a belief of Catholics to this day.
Although the Protestant Church rejected 'transubstantiation', they kept the communion ritual, declaring that in the bread and wine, the believer partakes spiritually in the flesh and blood of the god. There are three main doctrines of the Communion rite within Christianity:
1. The Roman Catholic Church teaches that the wafer and wine of the Sacrament become the actual flesh and blood of Christ (Transubstantiation).
2. The Lutheran Church teaches that the flesh and blood of Christ are consumed in and with the bread and wine. This doctrine is called Consubstantiation.
3. The Calvinists say that the bread and wine give those who partake of them a spiritual participation of the flesh and blood of Christ.
It has been a common practice of non-Catholic denominations to simply 'spiritualize' Catholic doctrines. However, the belief still remains, that by either literally or spiritually partaking in the body and blood of the 'god', the believer receives the very life of the god.
In the Jewish faith, there is no ritual where a worshiper literally eats a symbol of God in order to 'receive Him'. We are transformed only by the Ruach (Spirit of God) in the observance of the Commandments.
If this is the case, then what did Yeshua mean when he used the symbolism of bread and wine and flesh and blood in reference to himself? Let's begin by taking a look at Yeshua's words while partaking of his 'last' meal with his disciples, before he died:
"And he took bread and gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them and said, 'This is my body, which is given for your sake; this do in remembrance of me" Luke 22:19.
Most of us know, that at this time Yeshua was having a Passover Seder with his disciples. What piece of bread did he take, describing it as "my body"? He took the Afikomen; not just any piece of matzah, but the piece which was broken and hidden at the start of the Seder, and compared this to his body. This was UNLEAVENED bread, signifying the sinlessness of Messiah. It is only at the Passover Seder, held on the Eve of Nissan 14, that the Afikomen is eaten. The Torah clearly states that we are to remember our redemption by eating unleavened bread at the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread. This is the only time at which we are commanded by God to do this. Yeshua is the unleavened bread. For this reason he said, "Do this (keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread/Passover) in remembrance of me."
Most often, at a 'Communion service', leavened bread is used. Leaven represents sin; Messiah is 'the sinless one'. It is the anti-messiah who is called the 'man of sin'.
When the term "breaking bread" is used in the New Testament writings, it is either in context of the Passover Seder, or the weekly community meal. We already addressed the "communal meal" in Acts 2, now let us take a look at the following passages:
In 1 Corinthians 10:14-22, there are two issues which Paul addresses:
1. The sanctity of the Passover as being a meal for 'the redeemed' (the Body).
2. The prohibition of partaking in 'pagan meals'.
It seems that the Corinthians were attending the Passover Seder and then attending the pagan festivals as well. Paul says it is an offense to God to mix the two. Verse 21: "You cannot drink the cup of our Lord and the cup of devils; you cannot be partakers of the table of our Lord and of the table of devils." This is a common problem among Gentile believers, and Jewish 'Messianics', even to this day. Many like to attend the Biblical Festivals, but also continue in the pagan ones as well. Paul stresses the importance of the "community" of God as being a "set apart" body: v17, "For just as the loaf of bread is one, so we are all one body; for we are all partakers of that one bread." There can be no mixture.
The whole of I Corinthians 5 is about the Passover Seder. Paul says that those deliberately engaged in sin are not to partake of the Passover. The Passover is the only Festival of HaShem where only the observant can attend. The Corinthians were allowing just anyone to attend and the 'leaven' (sin) among them was not being removed. Paul stresses that those who continued in their sin were not to participate in the Seder. The Seder is to be celebrated without 'leaven' (sin) v7,8. It is Torah law that the 'body' is to be judged correctly. Paul says that we are not to keep non-believers out at all times, but only in the context of the Seder: verse 10, "I do not mean that you should separate completely from all the immoral people of the world..... verse 11 "but with such a person, you must not break bread."
Again in 1 Corinthians 11:26-31, Paul reinforces the Torah command that "no uncircumcised person may eat of the Passover". It seems that this command was not being taken seriously and non observant people were partaking. For this reason, as the Torah also warns, they were dying or becoming sick. This is what the Torah calls the punishment of 'Kareth' - when God executes punishment on a person who violates the Commandment in a hidden manner.
Paul's letters are for the purpose of dealing with issues arising among the Gentile members of the Nazarene Jewish Community. The Gentiles had no understanding of the Torah and its requirements. Due to Corinthian 'lawlessness', many problems were being imported into the Jewish Community. Paul is instructing the Gentiles on how things should be done and how serious these matters are. Contrary to what the Corinthians were used to, the Passover Seder was not a 'love feast' where anyone could come along for a good time and a good feed.
The above passages bear no relevance to a "Communion service" The term "breaking of bread" is purely a reference to either the Passover Seder, or just having a meal. Any other ritual, is simply not "breaking bread" in the Jewish context.
Having said this, what was Yeshua referring to when he said, "Unless you eat my body and drink my blood you have not life within you?"
Yeshua's very words are found in Jewish Kabbalistic writings. Keeping in mind that Yeshua is the LIVING TORAH who came down from heaven, let us read the following excerpt in that context:
"... The Torah is clothed in the soul and intellect of a person, and is absorbed in them, and is called 'bread' and 'food' of the soul. For just as physical bread nourishes the body as it is absorbed internally, in his very inner self, where it is transformed into blood and flesh of his flesh, whereby he lives and exists - so too, it is with the knowledge of the Torah and its comprehension by the souls of the person who studies it well, with a concentration of his intellect, until the Torah is absorbed by his intellect and is united with it and they become one. This becomes nourishment for the soul, and its inner life from the Giver of Life, the blessed En Sof (the Eternal God). This is the meaning of the verse, 'Yea, Thy Torah is within my inward parts." 2
In John 6: 47-57 Yeshua said the following, referring to himself as Torah: (parenthesis mine)
"I am the living bread (Torah) that came down from heaven. If anyone eats this bread (Torah), he will live forever. This bread is my flesh (Yeshua is Torah in the flesh), which I will give for the life of the world.... v53: Yeshua said to them, 'I tell you the truth, unless you can eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood (Yeshua is fully consumed Torah), you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh (Torah) is real food and my blood (Torah) is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me (Torah) will live because of me."
Yeshua is the fullness of wisdom, knowledge and understanding. He is the full COMPREHENSION (fulfillment) of Torah. If we fully absorb Torah, so that it becomes to us as flesh and blood, we will have eternal life. As the Sages say, "The scrolls of the Torah may be destroyed, but its spirit is immortal and indestructible. 3 The Ruach will quicken the spirit of the Torah within the righteous dead, and they will be resurrected.
Rabbi Abraham Heschel says in 'God In Search of Man': "The goal is for man to be an incarnation of the Torah; for the Torah to be in man, in his soul and in his deeds."
We can see how important it is to understand the words of Yeshua and the writers of the New Testament from a totally Jewish perspective. If we do not do so, we will in fact give the wrong interpretation or abolish their words. On the other hand, by interpreting the New Testament writings in the context of Jewish thought, terminology and practice, we will interpret correctly, or fulfill the words of Messiah and his disciples.

Is it not interesting that there is light associated with fertilization?


I never cease to be astounded by God's ways.


I have many people ask questions via the comments section.

If you have a private comment or something that you would like to share only with me, state so much on the comment (at the beginning of the comment - some longer comments are truncated and I do not always catch the end).  That is a good way to communicate with me.

If your profile is relatively new (no views), I may not respond unless you provide more corroborating information.


This rabbinical year just ended a few days ago (there is an ecclesiastical and a civil year in the Hebrew calendar).

I also want to comment on this point right now - Jeremiah 8:20:
  20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not   saved.

Think about the two festival seasons and the period in between.  My Jewish friend is in town so he could commemorate the Spring Feasts (Passover)/Feast of Firstfruits, with his family.  Both feasts and the associated events are associated with the First Coming.  We have passed thru the summer (the harvest is about over) and the fields are about to get burned after the Wedding Feast (part of the Fall Feast complex).

The Wedding Feast is associated with the Parable of the Ten Virgins.  This is the Feast of Succoth or Booths (every seen a Jewish wedding tent?).  Hopefully, I was able to paint a vivid enough picture - I have a hard time putting what is in my head into words......

Here is the link on those two Rabbis:



President Benson was in DC for some time.  I think he saw more than he cared to think about.  He raised the warning voice to the rest of us of the cesspool that exists there:

This talk was given by Pres. Ezra T. Benson GC 1988
I testify that wickedness is rapidly expanding in every segment of our society. (See D&C 1:14–16; D&C 84:49–53.) It is more highly organized, more cleverly disguised, and more powerfully promoted than ever before. Secret combinations lusting for power, gain, and glory are flourishing. A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world. (See Ether 8:18–25.)
I testify that the church and kingdom of God is increasing in strength. Its numbers are growing, as is the faithfulness of its faithful members. It has never been better organized or equipped to perform its divine mission.
I testify that as the forces of evil increase under Lucifer’s leadership and as the forces of good increase under the leadership of Jesus Christ, there will be growing battles between the two until the final confrontation. As the issues become clearer and more obvious, all mankind will eventually be required to align themselves either for the kingdom of God or for the kingdom of the devil. As these conflicts rage, either secretly or openly, the righteous will be tested. God’s wrath will soon shake the nations of the earth and will be poured out on the wicked without measure. (See JS--H 1:45; D&C 1:9.) But God will provide strength for the righteous and the means of escape; and eventually and finally truth will triumph. (See 1 Ne. 22:15–23.)
I testify that it is time for every man to set in order his own house both temporally and spiritually.
I testify that not many years hence the earth will be cleansed.

Folks, this is historical in the extreme:

Sorry if you do not have facebook.  I am not sure how to do it un-linked to FB.


This story is from a friend of mine.  She is a lioness of the Lord - and also a friend of Heather Jackson, of "Awaken" fame.

My parents, as a young couple just out of college, served as teachers at the Church college in NZ in the 1950's and I have 3 siblings who were born there.  My dad served a mission to Hilo, Hawaii prior to that.  I have a love of the people of those islands - though I have had limited access to them.  I have an affinity for their easy ways - very gentle and open (little guile in their manners):

In RS yesterday I shared a story of my Uncle Johnny who recently passed away at age 65 from a massive heart attack. We never knew this about him until his brother shared it at his funeral. My dad sent me a few more details and I thought I would share. I think it is such an inspiring example of a man who was worthy of using and believing in the power of God through His priesthood to bring others to Christ!
Johnny served a mission in New Zealand and the Cook Islands. He had such a great love for the Maori people. Toward the end of his mission he was on an island that had not been very responsive to the missionaries and had even rejected them many times. Then there came an outbreak of Hepatitis. The whole island had to be under quarantine. Johnny himself got the hepatitis. Many of the people on the island had died with a blood count of 1500 or less. Johnny's blood was over 3000. He was so sick and had lost an extreme amount of weight. But he received a blessing to get through it. He was well on his way to recovering when they said they wanted to send him back to America to make sure the hepatitis was all gone. He only had two weeks left on his mission and had put in for an extension to stay longer but the mission president told him he needed to go home and get better care.
Then there came a knock at Johnny and his companion's door. They were told to come quickly, one of the men from the island had drowned and they felt that the missionaries could help in some way. Johnny and his companion ran to the beach at the ocean where the drowned man had been pulled out of the water. When they got there they found out the man had already been dead for over an hour. The doctor had arrived also and pronounced him dead. In the meantime Johnny and his companion laid their hands on his head. Johnny was prompted to bless him to be restored to life. It was the words that came from him but they were not his words, he was only an instrument of the Lords will, concerning this man. The man began to cough and spit out water. Johnny then looked up to see the whole town was sitting and standing on the sea wall, watching the entire event. In a short time the man was able to join his family and friends that witness the whole thing. That very day Johnny received word that he was leaving the next morning to fly back home. He really didn't want to leave. There was such a feeling of love and gratitude for the people, and the people towards the missionaries and the church. The next morning as he was getting ready to leave he thought he wouldn't be able to say good bye. How would they know he was going because of such short notice. As he was about to board the plane several large cattle type trucks came racing toward him full of people from the Island. Honking their horns as they came. As he stood there in amazement the people gave him gifts and leis made of shells. They had stayed up all night long to make them for him. Lei upon Lei was put around his neck, so many they were piled up to the top of his ears. What a great joy it was to be honored that way, but he kept telling them it was the power of the priesthood, not him that brought the man back to life. The greatest gift of all was when he found out months later, when he was back home that this had awakened the whole island to the gospel. The people wanted to be taught the gospel and were being baptized in large numbers. Their minds had been opened and their hearts touched. Johnny had the great joy of knowing that he was a part of bringing many souls unto Christ.


Sometimes, you just have to take the Beach Boys to heart.......

Have a worry-free Monday!
