What Will Be The Sign Of The End Of The Age?

"And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?", see Matthew 24:3.

Jesus answered: "Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God", see Luke 8:10, and listen to Guns N Roses in "Sweet Child 'O Mine", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDeGbMr1I1E.

The 3 main signs of the end of this present age are: the Fig Tree sign, the rebuilt Third Temple of God in Jerusalem, and the Rapture.

The Fig Tree sign is the modern State of Israel and the city of Jerusalem back in Jewish hands.

The generation, which experienced this was promised to see the return of Christ.

Jesus accordingly said: "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh", see Matthew 24:32, and He continued: "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled", see Matthew 24:34.

We find references to the rebuilt Third Temple of God in 2 Thessalonians 2:4, and in Revelation 11:1. It will be built for Jesus our Father, see John 14:9, which art in heaven, see Acts 26:13 - 14, and compare with Matthew 6:9.

References to the Rapture can be found in Matthew 24:30 - 31, 40 - 41, Mark 13:26 - 27, John 14:2 - 3, 1 Corinthians 15:49 - 55, Philippians 3:20 - 21, 1 Thessalonians 4:15 - 17, 2 Thessalonians 2:1, and in Revelation 14:13 - 16. Compare also with Acts 1:9 - 10, Revelation 4:1, and Revelation 11:12.

"Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews", see John 4:22, and compare with the "Lion of the tribe of Judah" see Revelation 5:5, but beware of our adversary the devil, the "roaring lion", see 1 Peter 5:8.

"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us", see 2 Corinthians 4:6 - 7, and compare with the recently found Viking Treasure Trove in North Yorkshire, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Yg9tRiVFm0.

"Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature", see 2 Peter 1:2 - 4.

Compare with the hundreds of crocodiles, which have been born on a US nuclear site saving the species from extinction, http://news.bbc.co.uk/player/nol/newsid_6910000/newsid_6915800/6915820.stm?bw=bb&mp=wm&nol_storyid=6915820&news=1.

Those who receive the Word of God are indeed Gods, see John 10:34 - 35, and joint-heirs with Christ, see Romans 8:17; compare with Hebrews 2:10 - 12, and listen to Alizée in "L' Alizee", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WVr-BeLkTo&mode=related&search=.

Blessed are those who read, hear, and keep God's prophecy, see Revelation 1:3.

We should give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Greeks, nor to the Church of God, see 1 Corinthians 10:32, because we are debtors "both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise", see Romans 1:14.

"Quodcumque facitis, ex animo operamini sicut Domino et non hominibus", Colossians 3:23.

What Is The Rapture?

God intends to bring back Israel to the Promised Land, see Acts 1:6 - 7, and Romans 11:26.

"Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land", see Ezekiel 37:21.

The New Testament teaches that the Church Age will end with the Rapture of the Church, and compare with The Simpsons in "Homer Predicts The Rapture", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rce295uys6A.

The reason for the rapture is to bring the Israelis close to God, so that they can live and reign with Christ a thousand years, in and around Jerusalem, the beloved city, see Revelation 20:4 and 9. And we know that Jesus is the Father, see John 14:9, and Romans 9:5.

The Gospel of Mark accordingly reads: "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven", see Mark 13:26 - 27.

Why do we have war in Iraq, since it has nothing to do with the terror attacks of 9/11?, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUKuumhrSk8.

The Biblical reason for the Iraq war is to make room for "the Lost Tribes of Israel" in the Middle East. It is the prelude for the coming new Super Power Israel, see Daniel 2:34 - 35, and Matthew 13:31 - 33.

We know that at Christ's Second Coming Jesus will gather the "Lost Tribes of Israel" together - this is one reason why political leaders want a Palestinian State - and that He will place them alongside the tribe of Judah, which is modern day Israel.

But why did we have World War II, and who won it?

According to the Bible, God has given the lands of Europe and America - except for Greece - to the Romans (Italians and Germans), see Genesis 27:39 - 40.

According to Genesis 15:18 God gave all the territory - where there is much oil - between the Mediterranean Sea and the river Nile and the river Euphrates to the Israelis.

"Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves", see Ezekiel 37:12 - 13.

Now, the different Israeli tribes did not obey the Lord God to possess the Promised Land, see for example Joshuah 13:13. But instead the Israelis moved on to Europe and to America etc.

The Eternal God Jesus understood the almost unlimited capacity of the human mind which He Himself had created, see John 1:10.

God in heaven knew that if these rebellious human beings remained united and spoke one language - Latin - they would pool their mental and physical resources for destructive purposes; watch the highlights from this terrific ice hockey game between Finland and Sweden, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jK21DKe0vk.

We also know how Jacob stole the birthright from Esau, and the following modern politics of revenge.

How does the enemy react then when he realizes that his time is short? We get a glimpse of this in Revelation 12:12 - 13.

Revelation 12:13 states: "And when the dragon (Adolf Hitler) saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child", and listen to Bonnie Tyler and Kareen Antonn in "Total Eclipse Of The Heart", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nynjCiXhXoc.

Hitler understood that if he could destroy one Israeli tribe - the Jews in Europe and America - then he would ultimately rid Europe and America of all the Israeli tribes; Germany accordingly declared war on America 1941.

If Germany and Italy had lost World War II, then these two countries would have been declared Jewish, or at least Israeli. This did eventually not happen.

Actually, the War and the Holocaust was terrible things, but the political result of World War II could not have been better, because it gave a fresh start for the new Super Power Israel to be built in the Middle East, and it was also the signal and the beginning to move non-Romans and non-Germans from Europe and America back to Greater Israel.

Everyone is thus actually a winner after World War II, because the Romans and the Germans will in the end possess what belong to them - Europe and America - and the same is true for the Israelis, who will possess Greater Israel according to God's promise. And "who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller?", see Romans 11:34.

We already know that the Jews - the Israeli tribe of Judah - is modern day Israel, and listen to Robyn in "Don't Stop The Music", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6s4s1LCyMz4.

But what about the other Israeli tribes?

Well, Jacob's firstborn, the tribe of Reuben, is modern day France. The tribe of Gad, is modern day Switzerland. The tribe of Aser is Norway and Iceland, and the tribe of Nepthalim is Sweden and Russia. The tribes of Joseph - Manasses is the United States of America, and Ephraim is England and Wales. The tribe of Issachar is Finland and Estonia. The tribe of Zabulon is the Netherlands, and the tribe of Benjamin is Belgium. The tribe of Levi are the Scots, and the tribe of Dan is modern day Denmark. The tribe of Simeon is Ireland.

We should of course not forget that the peoples of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa also are part of the tribes of Israel.

We look forward to the imminent return of Christ and the event called the Rapture, when God will shake the world, and bring all Israelis back to Israel. What a great day that will be, and listen to Aerosmith in "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo_0UXRY_rY.

We are told by Jesus Christ Himself that if we do not consume His very flesh and blood we are not with Him in the eternal promise, see John 6:51 and 58.

But woe to the rebellious children because it is said: "Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth", see Ezekiel 39:18, and compare with Isaiah 30:1, Psalm 83:3 - 8, Obadiah 1:21, Revelation 6:14 - 17, and Revelation 11:3 - 15.

"Si qua ergo in Christo, nova creatura; vetera transierunt, ecce, facta sunt nova", 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Why Is Faith In Christ So Important?

Jesus said: "According to your faith be it unto you", see Matthew 9:29, and listen to Alizee in "Ella, Elle l'a", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik5Nh94v7EQ&mode=related&search=.

We know that the greatest faith is found among the Romans, see Luke 7:9, and compare with the 800 Christian martyrs from the southern Italy port of Otranto, http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/breakingnews/world/view_article.php?article_id=75253.

It is said that "the just shall live by faith", see Hebrews 10:38, and there is one faith and one baptism, because there is one Lord, see Ephesians 4:5, and listen to Danzel in "Pump It Up", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3lV4ZU0SN0.

You have heard how it has been said: "If God be for us, who can be against us?", see Romans 8:31. But how do we know that God is for us?

We know that God is for us because we are in the same boat together with Him. When Jesus said, "Let us pass over unto the other side", see Mark 4:35, He then fell asleep. Likewise now it is night, see Romans 13:12, and God seems to be absent or asleep. However, we do not need to be fearful, but only to have faith, see Mark 4:40, and listen to Laura Branigan in "Self Control", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5RV-jdpQJA&mode=related&search=.

A new day is coming as promised, see Matthew 24:27. And the New Testament grace, not the Old Testament law, will inherit the land, and listen to Paris Hilton in "Nothing In This World", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki2M3-2W-cQ&mode=related&search=.

When the Lord God had our names written in heaven, see Luke 10:20, He showed that everything is predestinated, see Romans 8:29, and also that He counts our victories, and compare with 1 Corinthians 15:57, Hebrews 2:14 - 15, and 1 John 5:4.

Most have heard of "the terror of the Lord", see 2 Corinthians 5:11, and Revelation 6:14 - 17, and know that Christ makes war in righteousness, see Revelation 19:11 - 15, as our Avenger, see Revelation 6:10 and 12:5, and compare with Luke 19:27, and Jude 1:9, but watch LeAnn Rimes in "Can't Fight The Moonlight", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjMGtb3MDWo&mode=related&search=.

We, as Christ's fellowsoldiers, see Philippians 2:25, must accordingly "war a good warfare", see 1 Timothy 1:18, and compare with Ephesians 6:12, and watch De La Soul in "Me, Myself, and I", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9twbBh2Hd0.

In the Middle East the state of Israel was born in 1948. But "there remaineth yet very much land to be possessed", see Joshua 13:1. However, if we ask anything in the name of Jesus He will do it, see John 14:14, and listen to Milli Vanilli, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSqV3rWM4iQ.

The modern state of Israel is mainly composed by the tribe of Judah, compare with Joshua 13:13 and Isaiah 30:1.

The other tribes - "The Lost Tribes" - of Israel live today in Europe, America, Australia, Africa, and Asia, compare with Deuteronomy 26:11, and watch Alizee in "La Isla Bonita", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZlgNj-rIxw.

This will however change, and compare with Genesis 27:40, and Isaiah 19:25.

Thus a multitude of European and American Israelis from the 11 "Lost Tribes" must prepare for a big Exodus to the Promised land between the river Nile and the river Euphrates - Israel - and listen to Rod Stewart in "Sailing", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1N7tjbZZUCo.

Everything is predestinated, like the great tribulation, see Matthew 24:21.

It took God WWII to bring the tribe of Judah back to Israel, and listen to Dschinghis Khan in "Mexico", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s6ey7Whq6A&mode=related&search=.

God has however decided to bring the other 11 tribes back to Israel as well, see Matthew 24:15 and Revelation 12:17, and listen to Nelly Furtado in "All Good Things", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j5_7V0DMkA.

The New Testament is not only the roadmap for our everyday life and for eternal life, but it is also a geographical map and a political agenda, see Hebrews 12:25 - 29, and watch KC & The Sunshine Band in "Shake Shake Shake", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHE-L8M8oy4.

Thus faith in Christ is the key that opens the door to our victory and enables us to walk victoriously with Jesus, and compare with 2 Corinthians 1:24.

The reason why God manifested Himself in the person of Jesus, see Hebrews 1:3, was for us to enjoy life more abundantly, see John 10:10, and to make us live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loves us, and Who gave Himself for us, compare with Galatians 2:20.

"Vigilate itaque omni tempore orantes, ut digni habeamini fugere ista omnia, quae futura sunt, et stare ante Filium hominis", Luke 21:36.

On Lunatic Moon God Worship

A pitfall that bedevils the child of God is legalism. We always risk to underlive or overlive the Christian life.

If an airplane pilot undershoots the runway or overshoots it, he can get killed at either end. "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days", see Colossians 2:16.

In France people eat excellent, but fat food. Yet the French people have overall 6 times less heart attacks than for example people in Latvia, where they eat healthier food, and compare with Borat, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhnFRsXn8Mw&mode=related&search=.

One reason for this is that the French drink moderate amounts of red wine with their meals.

Jesus showed us an example, commending this practice, when He transformed water to wine, see John 2:1 - 11, and compare with Revelation 6:6.

We know that the bond woman - law - always persecutes the free woman - grace - and compare with Galatians 4:22.

Legalism always criticizes grace, see Romans 14:4, and compare with Matthew 7:1 - 5. And listen to one of my favorite artists, Mariah Carey in "Without You", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOR_jq9M53c.

So now we Christians are free from the legalistic requirements about food and drink. Thus food and drink is a non issue to the Christian life.

"But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse", see 1 Corinthians 8:8. "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God", see 1 Corinthians 10:31. We may eat all kind of foods as long as we eat them with thanksgiving, see 1 Timothy 4:3.

"For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost", see Romans 14:17, and listen to Barry Manilow in "I write The Songs", http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance/search/I+Write+The+Songs+barry+m/video/x26ej6_i-write-the-songsbarry-manilow.

But what about the Moon God worship?

In fact the Old Testament constantly rebukes the worship of the Moon God, see for example Deuteronomy 4:19, 17:3, 2 Kings 21:3,5, 23:5, Jeremiah 8:2, 19:13, and Zephaniah 1:5.

Of course Jesus condemns the practice of swearing by heaven, because he who does this swears "by him that dwelleth therein", see Matthew 23:21, but compare with the Koran, "I swear by the moon", the Koran 74:32.

And the Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out devils through Baal Moon worship by "Beelzebub the prince of the devils", see Matthew 12:24.

Why does the Bible mention Moon worship then and does Moon worship exist in the Bible?

The cult of the Moon God is in fact very old. Moon worship has been practiced in Arabia since many thousand years. The crescent Moon is the most common symbol of this pagan Moon worship since 2000 B.C.

The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of "Allah".

The Moon God was also referred to as "al-ilah". This is not a proper name of a single specific God, but a generic reference meaning "the God". Each local pagan Arab tribe would refer to their own local tribal pagan God as al-ilah. Al-ilah was later shortened to Allah before Muhammed began promoting his new religion in 610 A.D.

But why is Allah never defined in the Koran? And why did Muhammed assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who Allah was? Well, because the pagan Arabs used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammed's father and uncle had Allah as part of their names.

Muhammed was raised in the religion of the Moon God Allah. But he went one step further than his fellow pagan Arabs. While they believed that Allah, i.e. the Moon God, was the greatest of all Gods and the supreme deity in a pantheon of deities, Muhammed decided that Allah not only was the greatest God, but also the only God.

Islam has proved itself to be a religion which has sprung up from idolatry. In fact Allah is historically the same thing as Elohim, and Yahweh/Jehovah.

But what causes the appearance of the old Moon in the new Moon's shoulders? It is sunlight reflected from the Earth's surface. This is also known as "Earthlight".

Similarly, Islam and the Koran have some nice sides in that they glorify Alexander the Great, and also concerning the child Jesus, in recognizing that when the boy Jesus, was five years old, as He was playing at the ford of a rushing stream, He made soft clay and shaped it into twelve sparrows. Then Jesus simply clapped His hands and shouted to the sparrows: 'Be off, fly away, and remember me, you who are now alive!' And the sparrows took off and flew away noisily.

This is also according to Catholic tradition known as the first miracle Jesus performed.

As a Lutheran I really admire Martin Luther and that he made the Bible available to everyone, contrary to the Catholic Church, which hid the New Testament word of life from the masses.

Martin Luther also exposed the corruptness of the Catholic Church of his days in a constructive way.

However, Martin Luther did a lot of harm to the Latin language and to both the Church and to the European Unity as a whole.

On the one hand the Reformation gave us the Bible, which really is a blessing. But on the other hand it robbed the Protestant world from its Latin language and unity, its roots and history, and the old sacred Christian wisdom.

There will be Church Unity, and I greatly admire Pope Benedict XVI. The Catholic Church will however have to change its stupid policies on barring women and married people from the Priesthood. The Catholic Church must also stop their banning of contraceptives, since this promotes AIDS and venereal diseases, which causes mass deaths especially in poor countries.

Anyway, Allah is also another name for the great mother goddess Cybele. Cybele was the original name of this goddess, and at her home in Pergamos in Asia Minor, she was associated with a meteorite cube, and compare with the Kabah and Acts 19:23 - 36.

Allah - or Cybele - was brought to Rome about 200 B.C. This black meteorite was adapted as the head of the cult statue. Allah, like Diana of the Ephesians, was a black virgin, and compare with Lilith. Allah soon became the chief false goddess of Rome and was associated with her consort Attis.

In the book of Revelation, Jesus referred to Pergamos and said that Satan's seat was there, see Revelation 2:13.

The crescent Moon represents Nimrod. Nimrod was a big powerful man and the originator of the great apostasy after the flood, and compare with Revelation 17:5. He was frequently represented as a bull. The crescent Moon, because it looks like the horns of a bull, also came to represent the female reproductive system. The two most popular symbols of paganism became the crescent Moon, compare with Isis, and the bull's horns, and compare with the helmets of the Vikings.

The author of the Pentateuch has correctly preserved the notion that Israel worshipped the Moon, represented by the Calf - not as a pedestal for Yahweh to stand upon - but that they worshipped the Moon - the Calf - as God Himself, and that Yahweh/Jehovah, or Elohim, or Allah if you so will, in fact is the golden calf of the Old Testament Torah.

It is interesting to note that the Jews stationed at Elephantine ca. 430 B.C. still worshipped a vestige of the Moon cult and its associated Calf worship - a goddess called Anat-Yahweh.

Moon worship flourished wherever the Mesopotamian culture spread, and actually Allah-Yahweh/Jehovah-Elohim is a fusion of the ancient Moon, rain, and thunder gods.

The New Testament condemns Israel and Judah for worshipping the Sun, Moon, Stars, as well as the Baals, see Romans 11:2 - 4, and a potsherd from Samaria bears the inscription Egeliah, which in Hebrew means "the bull-calf of Yah", suggesting it is Yahweh himself.

The number 666 also refers to the Moon, compare with the Tarot card 18 of the Great Arcana, and see also Luke 21:25. A knot thrice tied cannot easily be broken, but remember Alexander the Great and the Gordian Knot, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordian_Knot.

Is there any wonder we have spent trillions of dollars to go to the Moon to perform rituals there?

In Revelation 13:18 we read: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six". You will notice that the first six is capitalized thus denoting a name.

Genesis 1:16 states: "And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also", and 1 Corinthians 15:41 says: "There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory".

Thus God made the Moon and the stars to rule by night, but we know that "The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light", see Romans 13:12, and listen to Abba in "Summernight City", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJTIKsz3iTc.

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars", see Revelation 12:1, and listen to Alizee in "Moi Lolita", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTbkUMqtEyY; listen also to Zucchero and Paul Young in "Senza Una Donna", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiUn8RwpcfY&mode=related&search=.

Accordingly, You cannot use the word "lunatic" without thinking of the Moon, and watch Ozzy Osbourne in "Bark At The Moon", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXko2YCuZa8.

If we address the Moon and tell it to cease its evil influence, it will be clear that we take the term "lunatic" literally. The New Testament writers do however take the demon phenomena quite literally. Much more is involved than just the single term "lunatic", see Matthew 4:24 and Matthew 17:15.

"Et scimus quoniam Filius Dei venit et dedit nobis sensum, ut cognoscamus verum Deum, et simus in vero Filio eius. Hic est verus Deus et vita aeterna", 1 John 5:20.

Russian Gas Giant Raises Its Own Private Army

God gives You wealth to help others, therefore if we seek we shall find oil, see Matthew 7:7, and compare with Genesis 49:25 and Deuteronomy 33:24.

Russian gas giant Gazprom and pipeline monopoly Transneft will be given the right to set up armed security forces under a bill passed by Russian lawmakers on Wednesday.

In effect there will be foreign military units stationed in various countries under the direct control of Gazprom, and listen to Status Quo in "In The Army Now", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCLc8cZdhLI.

As long as the laws of the affected countries do not forbid companies to guard their property with armed people there is no problem, and a secure gas supply cannot hurt either. It is always the company's responsibility to secure their locations.

Russia’s move to arm Gazprom has also emerged as Nato begins to forge links with multinational oil companies. The organization has offered Royal Dutch Shell and BP seaborne rapid response forces to defend oil platforms and installations from hijackers and hostage-takers.

The Russian bill allows the two state-controlled companies to prevent attacks on pipelines and other installations "necessary for state contracts". And everybody wants a secure supply with gas; listen to "Everybody" with Backstreet Boys, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bev53HnN4Mk.

Supporters of the plan say that Russia’s oil and gas installations have to be protected from terrorist attacks at all costs. Gazprom is a joint stock company, where the Russian government has the majority of its stocks.

Gazprom controls 153 000 kilometres of gas pipeline, linking gasfields in remote parts of Siberia to urban areas and to Europe. Transneft’s pipelines have recently come under attack in the Caucasus from separatist groups.

Under the deal both Gazprom and Transneft will for the first time be allowed to employ their own armed operatives. The law includes no restriction on the number of armed employees.

Gazprom has presently 430 000 employees, and accounts for 93 per cent of Russia's natural gas production, and 25 per cent of supplies to the European Union, and listen to Mylene Farmer's Medley, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPTWuhaQL0Q.

Alexander Gurov, a Duma deputy who drafted the bill, says: "A couple of terrorist acts and an ensuing ecological catastrophe would be enough to immediately declare Russia an unreliable partner and supplier of energy".

And a pipeline is a lucrative target for terrorists who want to hurt either Europe, Russia, or both.

However, the signs that the Kremlin is creating a private military force within Russia’s most powerful company arouses concern that Gazprom is rebuilding a power base that extends beyond its role as a gas utility.

But the bill allows the security force to be deployed only to protect infrastructure, and Gazprom’s pipelines provide vital links to Europe across sensitive borders with Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, and in international waters; listen to The Muppet Show in "In The Navy", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4n1y3U4FarU&mode=related&search=.

Here it can be noted that the name Russia has ancient Swedish derivation.

According to history, the Swedes - or in this case Svear - led by the Viking Rurik from Roslagen in Sweden, founded the Kingdom of Novgorod in 862 A.D. in Russia, and it was called Holmgård in Swedish. Thus the name Russia has Swedish origins from Roslagen, and Sweden is for example called Ruotsi in Finnish and Rootsi in Estonian.

Roslagen is geographically located immediately to the north of Stockholm, in Uppland in Sweden. And if you go there, and study the local Swedish people there - what they look like, and their local mentality - you will see the Russian people with new eyes, and compare as a curiosity with the Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren, who played Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMpSDwlGrKA.

Gazprom announced last week that it is joining forces with the Italian energy group Eni to build a pipeline from Russia to Europe, and listen to Europe in "The Final Countdown", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_IKcMl_a9A.

The military equipment of the armed units of these companies will be similar to that of the Russian security forces, and listen to Laam in "Petite Soeur", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhssHMyxQZo&mode=related&search=.

I think it is excellent that there will be people watching over the pipelines, because they are important targets, and they should be guarded, see Revelation 6:6.

The oil refineries in the Arabian gulf are for example guarded by armed security personnel. Safe and predictable pipelines, delivering Europe's fix, must be preferred before unsafe and unpredictable pipelines.

As long as Gazprom's and Transneft's Armed Forces are part of a commercial agreement there is no problem. It is just security like the ones you see at shopping malls, and listen to Mylene Farmer and Seal in "Les Mots", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEWXRjZox5E.

The problem is not only terrorism as such, it is also the illegal cuttings into the pipelines. The pipe raiders are often better equipped than the security guards, and there are for example hundreds of illegal cut-ins across Russia every day, and listen to Natasha St Pier in "Tu Trouveras", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68p2Ls-fTAI.

The scarcity combined with our dependance on oil and gas make large specialized company armies necessary. In this particular case, Russia also has many enemies and therefore has to make sure it can deliver both oil and gas safely. Belgium for example is heavily dependent on natural gas from Russia.

Latinists in the Renaissance were the most broad-minded people. We should approach the oil and gas business as they would have done. And You do not have to be old fashioned to love Latin.

"Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice", see Philippians 4:4.

"Cum enim dixerint: 'Pax et Securitas', tunc repentinus eis superveniet interitus, sicut dolor in utero habenti, et non effugient", 1 Thessalonians 5:3.

Oil Supplies Will Start To Run Out In Four Years' Time

Oil is as essential to us as air and water, see Revelation 6:6.

A jet plane cannot take off with the energy from a windmill, and compare with Daniel 12:4, and listen to Alice Cooper in "School's Out", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib84GZVz2g4.

Oil-dependent nations are turning to renewable energy sources such as hydroelectric, solar and wind power to provide an alternative to oil, but the likelihood of renewable sources providing enough energy is slim.

And, for example, the construction of a single car requires, on average, at least 20 barrels of oil.

A report from the Royal Bank of Scotland notes that - according to data from April 2007 - production of crude oil in the UK has declined 12% during the previous 12 months.

Modern society and the world is running out of cheap oil faster than expected, and listen to Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman in "Time To Say Goodbye", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sp0ccQVy1og.

The consumption of oil now starts to outstrip our discovery of new reserves and we begin to deplete known reserves.

Thus the end of oil is coming sooner than governments and oil companies are prepared to admit, and listen to Michel Sardou and Garou in "La rivière de notre enfance", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDB-NxdDpm0.

Any beer drinker understands the Peak Oil theory. The glass starts full and ends empty and the faster you drink it the quicker it is gone, see 1 Corinthians 1:17.

Two-thirds of the world's oil reserves lie in the Middle East, and increasing demand will have to be met with massive increases in supply from this region.

A reduction of as little as 10 to 15 per cent could cripple oil-dependent industrial economies. In the 1970s, a reduction of just 5 per cent caused a price increase of more than 400 per cent.

But, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men", see Luke 2:14, and listen to Celine Dion in "Pour Que Tu M'Aimes Encore", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rWnRnwT5J8&mode=related&search=.

Here it can also be noted that most renewable energy equipment requires large amounts of oil to produce.

A survey of the four countries with the biggest reported reserves - Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq and Kuwait - reveals major concerns.

In Kuwait last year, a journalist found documents which suggests that the country's real reserves only are half of what has previously been reported. And Iran this year became the first major oil producer to introduce oil rationing - an indication of the administration's view on which way oil reserves are going.

The Book of Revelation reveals itself as a series of natural upheavals, fitting for a modern society running out of oil.

We can clearly see how the energy question and its answer firmly is rooted in the New Testament, and compare with http://ohlundonline.blogspot.com/2007/02/peak-oil-crude-reality.html.

In recent years the once considerable gap between oil-demand and oil-supply has narrowed. Last year that gap all but disappeared. The consequences of a shortfall will be immense.

When the consumption of oil begins to exceed production by even the smallest amount, the oil price will soar above $100 a barrel, and listen to Emma Daumas and Nolwenn Leroy in "Aller Plus Haut", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPVYYtL0yGI&NR=1.

One thing most oil analysts agree on is that depletion of oil fields follows a predictable bell curve.

This has not changed since the Shell geologist M King Hubbert made a mathematical model in 1956 to predict what would happen to US petroleum production. The Hubbert Curve shows that at the beginning production from any oil field rises sharply, then reaches a plateau before falling into a terminal decline.

Hubbert's prediction that US oil production would peak in 1969 was ridiculed by those who claimed it could increase indefinitely. In the event it peaked in 1970 and has been in decline ever since.

In 1999, Britain’s oil reserves in the North Sea peaked, but for two years after this became apparent, it was heresy for anyone in official circles to say so.

Oil demand is surging. The rapid growth of China and India matched with the developed world’s dependence on oil, mean that a lot more oil will have to come from somewhere, and listen to Laam in "Chanter pour ceux qui sont loin de chez eux", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDOIoDrU_o4&mode=related&search=.

Today the world consumes an average of 85 million barrels of oil daily. And this figure increases continually...

Scientists now warn that oil supplies will start to run out in four years' time, but fail to state the obvious about Ethanol: That an estimated 3 billion people will be threatened with starvation as less profitable food crops will cease production, and listen to Isabelle Boulay and Johnny Hallyday in "Tout au bout de nos peines", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbIaNYG7tsQ&mode=related&search=.

"Quoniam servasti verbum patientiae meae, et ego te servabo ab hora temptationis, quae ventura est super orbem universum temptare habitantes in terra", Revelation 3:10.

Happy 4th Of July, USA!

I want to wish all of the U.S. an excellent 4th of July!

What I like with You Americans the most is that You always defend freedom all over the world.

Thank you America, and remember that we only are aliens and strangers on Earth, and watch Crazy Frog in "We Are Champions", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwRZSTXFTOU&NR=1.

In the New American Standard Bible it is written: "For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come", see Hebrews 13:14, and compare with Ephesians 2:19, Hebrews 11:16, 12:27, and Revelation 16:19 and 21:16.

"Sed accessistis ad Sion montem et civitatem Dei viventis, Hierusalem caelestem, et multorum milium angelorum, frequentiae", Hebrews 12:22.

Pope Benedict XVI Authorizes The Mass In Latin

The brave Pope, Benedict XVI, looks toward a bright future for the Latin language, and he wisely recommends Roman Catholic priests to say mass in Latin.

Latin brings out the most profound and sacred feelings for God within Your heart.

Latin helps You to find both Jesus Christ and Your roots, and it helps You to enter into the mystery of the mass.

Latin furthermore allows You to experience the Holy Spirit and to build up Yourself in Your most Holy Faith, compare with Jude 1:20.

"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified", see Galatians 2:16.

The Latin language is The Sacred Language, see Romans 1:7, from which for example English has originated, and listen to Cliff Richard and Helmut Lotti, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mRVPjX9XLA&mode=related&search=.

Originally the New Testament was written in Latin, and Latin was also the language of Jesus, see http://ohlundonline.blogspot.com/2007/03/why-did-jesus-speak-latin.html.

The Old Testament Law came by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ, see John 1:17, and compare with Ephesians 2:1 - 2.

And so the Old Testament Law of Moses, was nailed to the cross 2000 years ago, see Colossians 2:13 - 14, and compare with Galatians 3:10 and Ephesians 2:14 - 15.

When the Old Testament law was nailed to the cross of Christ, it was definitely brought to an end as a Law to guide God's people, see Hebrews 8:13, and it became replaced by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, see 2 Corinthians 3:11.

Latin is also prophesied to be the unifying language and the great treasure of the future, see for example Obadiah 1:6, Zephaniah 3:9, Romans 16:20, and 2 Corinthians 3:9.

Compare with Daniel 11:41 - where God protect His peoples and tongues from the wrath to come - and Edom is Latin, Moab is Hebrew, and Ammon is Greek; no one should argue about this, and watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teMlv3ripSM&mode=related&search=.

Remark how the New Testament Latin language allows words to be translated into both Hebrew and Greek, see for example Revelation 9:11, and watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrShK-NVMIU&mode=related&search=.

Latin is the beautiful and Universal language of love, which will bring us all together, because God is love, see 1 John 4:16, and His love is eternal and His love is for all, see Revelation 14:6.

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new", see 2 Corinthians 5:17, and listen to this Swedish classic by Tone Norum and Tommy Nilsson, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLVf7vt4U10.

"Scientes autem quod non iustificatur homo ex operibus legis, nisi per fidem Iesu Christi, et nos in Christo Iesu credidimus, ut iustificemur ex fide Christi et non ex operibus legis, propter quod ex operibus legis non iustificabitur omnis caro", Galatians 2:16.

Can A Person See God And Live?

In the Old Testament it is written that all Israel saw God, see Exodus 24:10 - 11, but that no man shall see God and live, see Exodus 33:20.

Accordingly, all the Israelites in the generation which left Egypt were killed and thus prohibited from entering into the Promised Land, except Joshua and Caleb, see Numbers 14:38, and compare with Revelation 11:8.

Similarly, at the Second Coming of Christ - our Lord and God - every eye will see Him, see Revelation 1:7, and then every living soul will die in the sea, see Revelation 16:3, and man will be scarcer than pure gold, see Isaiah 13:12, and compare with Matthew 24:21.

The criterion for remaining alive and reign for a thousand years with Christ, and for being part of the first resurrection is given in Revelation 20:4 - 5, and listen to Jesus Christ Superstar in "Hosanna", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebwajADIm7k.

But find comfort as the Rapture is explained to You in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 - 18, because we will all be changed, see 1 Corinthians 15:51.

Many will hide themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains at Christ's Second Coming; saying "to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" see Revelation 6:15 - 17.

"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened", see Matthew 24:22.

We know that "our God is a consuming fire", see Hebrews 12:29, but Jesus promised that He would manifest Himself to everyone who keeps His commandments and loves Him, see John 14:21.

"For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe", see 1 Timothy 4:10.

Jesus came to save the lost sheep of the House of Israel, see Matthew 18:10 - 14. But Christ reminded us that He also has other sheep, see John 10:16. Furthermore, we got a warning to beware of wolves in sheep's clothing, see Matthew 7:15.

In the Old Testament we read how Moses ordered the Levites to "slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour", see Exodus 32:27. Eventually the Levites became fed up with killing their brothers, friends, and neighbors, but Moses considered that by doing this the Levites brought a blessing upon themselves, see Exodus 32:29.

So therefore the apostle Paul now had to point out to the Galatians - who were composed of the Lost Tribe of Levi - how previously the apostle Peter and the group around him in Jerusalem had been following the traditions of Jesus, and no longer lived like Jews, but then had hypocritically caved in to the demands of the Old Testament Torah crowd, adhering to the "philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ", see Colossians 2:8.

Paul reminds everyone that the demands of the Old Testament Law now have been torn down, and are replaced with the New Testament Law, see Matthew 5:18 and Hebrews 8:7.

To build the old sinful regulations back up again makes one a sinner not keeping them, and that to turn back again is a demonstration of lack of faith in Christ. Paul further insists that to uphold the Old Testament Law is to suggest that Christ promotes sin, and Paul strongly adviced that to keep the Old Testament regulations is a sin, but that all instead should have faith in Christ and in His commandments of love, see Galatians 2:11 - 18.

Paul's letter to the Galatians, reminded them of how he opposed Peter and the Church in Jerusalem. But now he noted that this very same insanity was going on in the Galatian Church.

Paul then reminded the Galatian Church that Christ was crucified for His resistance, and that God already had blessed them for having faith in Christ on this matter. So why did they now decide to turn aside to the falsehood of the Old Testament Torah, which neither was written by Moses, nor is infallible, eternal, or binding? Why would the Galatians continue to be slaves to the evil Old Testament Torah and to the elemental spirits, when they had gained freedom through faith in Christ?, compare with Galatians 3:1 - 7, and Galatians 5:1 - 6.

Paul continued: "As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God", see Galatians 6:12 - 16.

Paul says that "the just shall live by faith", see Romans 1:17. This is a warning concerning all deceitful workers who masquerade as apostles of Christ, and compare with 2 Corinthians 11:13. Paul here also had in mind the many contradictions in the Old Testament.

We know that Moses not was the author of the Old Testament Torah, and that the Old Testament never was infallible, which by the way is one of the traditions that compose the Old Testament itself.

We also know that Moses probably was a Cainite, and also that the House of David, has its roots among the Moabites, through Ruth, and compare with Daniel 11:41. This was why Jesus said to the apostle Peter, who also was from the tribe of Judah, "get thee behind me, Satan", see Matthew 16:23, and compare with the Lord's word to the Devil in Luke 4:5 - 8.

All the territory from the river Nile, and to the river Euphrates, and even to the Mediterranean sea, belongs to the twelve tribes of Israel, see Genesis 15:18 - 21, and Acts 1:6 - 7. Concerning the rest of the territories in the world - like Europe and America - there is a special blessing to the Romans (together with the Germans and Austrians), and to the Greeks, see for example Deuteronomy 23:7, Isaiah 19:25, Matthew 8:8 - 10, Romans 1:7, and Romans 10:12.

However, all Nations will ultimately be one single Nation under Christ, our Saviour and God, see for example Isaiah 9:7, Luke 1:33, and Revelation 11:15.

Together we are building Heavenly Jerusalem - The Space Cube - which has 6 sides and 22 main directions, see Revelation 21:16. From there we are about to colonize the rest of the Universe, and bring it to obedience to Christ - see Mark 16:15 - and so shall we reign for ever and ever together with our Lord God, see Revelation 22:5, and listen to Limahl in "The Never Ending Story", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3khTntOxX-k.

We should remember that "flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption", see 1 Corinthians 15:50.

"In hoc enim laboramus et maledicimur, quia speravimus in Deum vivum, qui est salvator omnium hominum, maxime fidelium", 1 Timothy 4:10.
