Mount Hermon Week 52

We dig deeper into the fifth trumpet judgment this week to explore the links between the locust-like creatures that fly out of the abyss and older stories from the Near East like the Epic of Gilgamesh and Inanna’s Descent to the Netherworld.

Then we compare the creatures from the bottomless pit to the apkallu of Mesopotamia, the Watchers of the Bible, and the Titans of Greek mythology, and conclude that they are one and the same.

Fallen Angel

With Revelation 9, we get into the real action that leads up to Armageddon. An angel fallen to Earth was given the key to the abyss, releasing the monstrous things that have been confined in the bottomless pit.

Who is that angel? Is he loyal to God? And what are those locust-like things? We discuss what we know from the Bible and compare that information with what the people of the ancient world believed about the old gods—the Titans, Watchers, and Mesopotamian apkallu.

Wormwood-2-Week-50

The order of the first three trumpet judgments (hail and fire, a mountain hitting the sea, and Wormwood) roughly follow the sequence of the events of the Exodus—a plague of hail and fire, the parting of the sea, and the bitter waters at Marah.

We discuss the significance of the pattern, and consider whether President Trump’s new Space Force might be connected to the potentially hazardous asteroid Apophis that will make a near pass of Earth on April 13, 2029.

 

Salvation

(This eternal salvation information is adopted from two of my favorite online prophecy update pastors, namely: JD Farag from The Calvary Chapel in Kaneohe Oahu;  and Charlie Garrett from The Superior Word in Sarasota in Florida)

In the Bible, we’re taught that we are created. God created us to have a relationship with Him, but Adam, our first father disobeyed God’s law. Because he did, we inherited his sin. Now there is a divide between God and man.

God                                  /////// X ///////                                 Man

The Bible teaches that God is perfectly righteous and therefore, like a judge, he must convict those who are guilty of breaking His laws. Imagine looking at a person through a pane of glass. If the glass has mud all over it, you don’t see the beauty of that person, you see the mud. This is what it’s like when God looks at us. He sees our sins and because He is perfectly holy, he cannot accept us this way. Instead, he must judge our sins.

However, Jesus came and lived the perfect life that Adam didn’t. He repaired the divide. It is by faith in what God has done, through Jesus Christ – the God/Man – that we are restored to a right relationship with God. Jesus took all the sin and judgment that each of us deserves and was crucified on a cross. In that moment he became our sin and our guilt.

 

Now when we put our faith in Jesus Christ, God no longer sees our sin. Instead He sees Christ’s perfect obedience and righteousness. God has done all the work necessary for man to again live in His presence. The cross is the bridge that made this possible. It was at the greatest cost of all that man has been bought back from sin and death to eternal life through Jesus.

There is none righteous, no, not one; Romans 3:10

The Bible tells us that because we have a sin nature, we are unrighteous in God’s sight.

– Don’t look to your own goodness to save you.

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 

We all have sin in our hearts – it’s our very nature to sin. We all were born with sin and without Jesus we are under the power of sin’s control.

– Admit that you are a sinner.

 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

Sin results in death and we all face physical death, the result of sin.  But worse is our spiritually dead condition that has alienated us from God. Unless we’re reborn, it will last for all eternity.  The Bible clearly teaches there is a place called the Lake of Fire where lost people will be destroyed.   It’s the place where people who are spiritually dead will remain.

– Understand that you deserve death for your sin.

However, salvation is a gift from God to you!  You can’t earn this gift; instead you must reach out and receive it.

– Ask God to forgive you and save you.

 

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

When Jesus died on the cross He paid the penalty for our sin – all our sin. He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only requirement on our part is that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are given new life through Him, and that He is our life.  He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!

– Accept the gift!  His love alone saves you — not religion, church membership, or family heritage.  God loves you, and the gift is waiting!

 

For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

Do it today! Make it known that you are standing for Christ and the Gospel.

– Call out to God in the name of Jesus!

 

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

The term “justification” as used in the Bible is a legal term. When you call on Jesus, you stand righteous in God’s eyes. You can never stand condemned again because Christ’s perfect righteousness has now been given to you. Every sin you have ever committed or ever will commit is now covered by the precious blood of the spotless Lamb of God.

– You know God is knocking on your heart’s door, so ask Him to come into your heart. Believe in your heart and confess it with your mouth!

To understand a little of what Jesus Christ suffered, take time to read Isaiah 52:13 through 53:12. Isaiah is the 23rd book of the Bible. It was written 700 years before Jesus Christ came and foretold His mission to save us.

See, my servant will act wisely;
he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

Just as there were many who were appalled at him—
his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man
and his form marred beyond human likeness—

so will he sprinkle many nations,
and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand.

Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.
Like one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.

By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
And who can speak of his descendants?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.

Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.

Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

If you’ve never committed your life, soul, and eternal destiny to Jesus Christ then do it now! Turn to God through Jesus and He will give you a new heart and a new direction which will be your peace.

“God, I know I’m a sinner, I’m lost, and I need to be saved.  I know I can’t save myself, so right now, once and for all, I trust You to save me.  Come into my heart, forgive my sin, and make me Your child.  I give You my life.  I will live for You as You give me strength.”

If you took the time to accept Jesus, you may now shout “Whoo Hoo – I’m saved by the precious blood of the Lamb!” I rejoice with you and I’ll see you in His presence some glorious day…

Thank You

 

Very Important To Your Health And Overall Success


Read To The End 

And Read As Many Times As Necessary

          ——————————————————————–

This is not some B.S. hype.

 

This will help make your life easier, and it’ll help you make more life changes faster!

 

OK, here’s the deal…

 

This is supposed to be a “thank you page” but typically those suck, so I figured I’d just give you a quick jump start guide to  A Healthy Robust Start To Bolster Immunity


Living a healthy lifestyle has been my passion and growth for over the last three decades.

 

Knowing how to succeed living a healthy life is very important to your consistency, discipline and determination.

 

This process is not half as difficult as it may sound to some people, only those who are forced and have no love nor desire to live a healthy life will find this lifestyle burdensome.

 

In many ways adapting a healthy lifestyle is the perfect way to experience life in its fulness.

 

You don’t have to create a different way of life, for the most part, you just need to make minor adjustments to what you are currently doing now.

 

Sounds good, right?

 

It sounds good because it is good. It can be a wonderful way to live the abundant life.

 

But the fact remains that some 93% (or more) of the world population never enjoy really good health, and very few of the 7% who do succeed robust health has a full life of consistent holistic health.

 

I believe this problem can be solved for the majority!

 

I want you to know that it is not too late for you. You have not missed the train at all.

You can begin today and find success as a successful lifestyle enthusiast if you consistently work at it and use simple and proven methods that I am using.

Today I’m giving you NINE key steps to a successful healthy life that I learnt from the past three decades.

I use each one of these disciplinary principles and share them freely with you in hopes they help you too as you apply them in your life.

Remember, every one of us were in the same boat at one time.

Where we end up depends on our choices, consistencies and compliance with proven alternatives that work.

You do not have to be an ‘expert’ to follow these methods.

You just have to want to change your mind and the way you think about healthy choices.

Ready?


       Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #1 – Eat More Foods Reaped     From  The Plant, And Less of Those Manufactured In The Plant

The hot topic all over the world today is bolstering immunity

Our eating habits and style is the best place to begin this important journey of lifestyle changes and strengthening your immunity. We must focus on eating raw organic and naturally grown foods

We should also understand and apply the correct portion of dieting each day.

The following represent the right portion of healthy dieting:

  1. 50% Green nutrients.
  2. 35% Yellow nutrients.
  3. 15% Red nutrients

We need to consume more foods that heal our cells.

Healing foods should be eaten raw in their natural state. The group of foods that heal include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, peas, and beans.

Healing foods that are cooked become neutral, they neither heal nor harm the cells of the body.

There’s a lot that people can do in regards to bolstering their immunity, and probably the first place to start is just with some basic nutrition.

One of the best aspects that you can do is adding lemons, limes and pineapples to your diet. Now this is not lemon and lime juice out of a bottle.

Those are pasteurized, it is not the same as the real fruits.

They are definitely not the same, and so whenever you take a lemon or lime, and I would certainly encourage organic, because it does afford a certain level of protection.

This first point of correct dieting is so important, so foundational, that if you get this first step right you will see results faster even if you bobble the others.

Take time to get point #1 in the bag,  because this is where 93% of individuals fails to do it right.

   Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #2 – Drink More Purified Clean Water Daily

Drinking more water is one of the simplest habits many people are missing. Most of us do not drink enough water every day, which is necessary for our bodies to work properly.

Water is absolutely essential for carrying out our bodily functions, removing waste, and transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout our bodies.

The lymphatic system carries five times more liquid than blood in the circulatory system.

Since water is expelled every day through urination, bowel movements, perspiration and breathing, we need to replenish the amount of water in our bodies constantly and consistently.

The amount of water we need depends on a variety of factors, but generally an average adult needs two to three liters a day.

A good way to tell if you are getting enough water is by your urine—which should be either colorless or pale yellow.

   Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #3 – Cultivate Daily Exercise

Now, it doesn’t necessarily have to be just what we call “exercise“. I’m talking activity, that could be mowing your lawn, it could be playing with your kids, it could go for a bike ride, it could be dancing, it could be singing, it could be any number of things that’s interesting.

Because I think a lot of people when you say exercise, they immediately think the gym, guys in tights doing aerobics or lifting weights.

But I’m suggesting this could be anything that you actually enjoy doing.

That isn’t just monotonous in nature, that could be you riding a bike outside or playing with the kids.  

I would certainly suggest that if there’s something that you have fun doing, there’s something you have enjoyed doing, promote that. It’s a good thing, those produce all kinds of biochemical, hormonal biophysical responses that are anti-aging.

That protect your immunity, that protects your bones and your joints and make you happier during the day, and it could be anything.

Our bodies really were meant to be used.

Yes, as one holistic doctors said, when you just sit around all day, your body starts to think you’re dying.

Get active in spirit, soul and body

     Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #4 – Practice Good Quality Sleep                                             Nightly

Sleeping, and I can’t even say how this is so important. It’s more important than food, than water, and we don’t think that way. But you can go exactly three days without sleeping and you’ll find out what matters most.

You know you can go that period without food, but you can’t go without sleep.

It’s when everybody shuts down, two-thirds of the body shuts down itself.

I’m generalizing here, but that’s when a third of the body goes to work, when the flushing happens, that’s when the cleansing happens, that’s when the repair happens, that’s when the immunity happens.

Your memories are made at night.

I mean when you’re asleep, so many of the vital functions, the anti-aging functions and the health functions, happen during sleep, and that’s why it’s so important to make sure you get quality sleep to bolster your immune system.

Again this is so important, that’s when detox mostly happen, when inflammation mostly happens.

It’s just so many layers, but you have to get great sleep to hit those maximum benefits.

 

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #5 —  Engage In Deep Breathing Daily

In every human being is what they call the vagus nerve, and it’s a nerve that runs from the back of the neck all the way down, pretty much through every organ.

It goes through your lungs, your gall bladder, liver, kidneys, and it’s because it both picks up and distributes information to those organs.

So every time you take a deep breath, and you don’t have to be a master breather.  I’m literally talking about just a deep breath into the diaphragm and then all the way out and then another one, deep into the diaphragm.

What happens is, that sends a signal up the vagus nerve to the brain to calm down, so that’s why we get this feeling, and it’s not really a feeling it’s biochemistry.

You could do it right now, somebody’s like, hey step back, take a deep breath and calm down, which we all know, it’s universal.

Right now we can actually see the signal go up and down the body and it tells these organs and glands to relax. 

So it’s definitely a good habit to develop and breathe deep whenever you can.

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #6  —  The Medicine Of Laughter

One healthy habit is that of laughter, yes laughter really is a medicine! It really is. 

We secrete and release useful substances whenever we laugh.

And so if you find yourself being so stressed out, and you just can’t get out of that place, then take timeout, a little escape moment.

Go search for something that you find funny to watch, some kids play, go do something to that effect and see if you can find some of the places in your life that make you happy and want to laugh.

It will help break that mental cycle of being trapped in this kind of stress oriented place which with so many of us live in.

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #7 — Prevent And Reduce Stress  

Stress is part of being human, and it can help motivate you to get things done.

But if not manage, it can easily drops immunity faster than any other thing. For a thousand reasons, it’s like whenever we get stressed the body can’t interpret stressors.

It really doesn’t know much of a difference between, I can’t pay my bills or if I’m being killed by a bear.

So the body shuts down memory.

You don’t need to fight a cold like you need to fight a bear, like it’s telling you, and burning through your B6 reserves. It’s like thousands of things are taking place when you are stressed.

It’s telling you, you don’t need to digest food, you don’t need to eliminate waste.

Stress shuts down everything concerning immunity.

So with that in mind the first thing I would say is, mindfulness, be aware. If you find yourself being stressed, realize, oh, I’m getting stressed!

I need to step back and just take a moment, and realize that my legs are not on fire.

I’m not literally in dire jeopardy, so that right there does wonderful things for helping us reset our mind, and not put you in a kind of worry and anxiety, which suppress our immunity through that mechanism.

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #8 — Do Best Form Of Meditation

The word “meditation” has developed some what of a bad reputation in certain Christian circles. And the worst part about it is, some Christians believe in and embrace Transcendental Meditation as a good thing to do.

I simply want to reclaim the term without going too deep, as one of the essential spiritual disciplines for all believers.

I would like to make three fundamental points:

Meditation begins, but by no means ends, with thinking on Scripture, the Word of Yahweh.

Meditation therefore means, being completely attentive to Yahweh, and….

Meditation on Scripture is essential to Christian living.

This is one way to “keep our eyes on the things above where Christ is” (Col. 3:1). It is an active, present, and continuous engagement of the mind with God (Yahweh).

Our mind has to be renewed (Rom. 12:1-2) as part of the process by which the word of God can penetrates our soul and spirit with the Truth.

Christian meditation combines our soul, mind and heart.

Our soul reflecting upon what our mind have ingested and our heart rejoicing in what our soul have grasped. We have truly meditated when we slowly read, prayerfully imbibe and humbly rely upon what God has revealed to us.

All of this, of course, in total dependence on the internal, energizing work of the Holy Spirit.

 

Healthy Lifestyle Key Step #9  —  The Health Benefits Of Fasting

The ninth healthy lifestyle key is fasting, which we think is becoming the absolute nutrition.

By giving the body a metabolic break, where it’s not constantly trying to digest food, allows it to turn its energy towards other things which are healing, and cleaning up the body. 

And there’s a whole lot of data, and hopefully we can do a program to really look into more depth about the topic of fasting.

But suffice it to say that to refrain from eating and drinking, is an act of worship that is good for your spirit, soul and body.

It brings a new sense of satisfaction.

When you complete your fasting, you feel renewed and full of energy. You also detox your body and mind, with a new desire, a new praise and a sensitivity to God’s voice.

You’ll find that the absence of food was small in comparison to what you gained.

We’re just giving you an overview about the kind of simple things what you could do today, in order to boost your immunity right now to fight coronavirus.

These are the daily practices that would keep us from being stressed.

When we do this, we really absolve ourselves of so much of the worry, fear and anxiety.  I mean we can, absolve ourselves of everything. This is what lets us know we did the work that we can on our end.

What you are seeing, hearing, experiencing at any moment is changing not only your mood, but how your nervous, endocrine, and immune systems are all working.

Last but not least…
