Happy Easter - Joyeuses Pâques - Glad Påsk!

Nec mortem effugere quisquam nec amorem potest.

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live", see John 11:25.

Christ, "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature", see Colossians 1:15, died as our Savior, but He now lives as our Lord God.

Today we celebrate the power and glory of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace", see Ephesians 1:7.

Christ bore our sins in His body on the Cross.

"For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad", see Luke 8:17.

But Jesus died as a victorious Savior, and won the victory over sin, death, and hell, when He was raised to the newness of Resurrection life on Easter morning.

Happy Easter - Prospera Pascha sit!

"To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation", see 2 Corinthians 5:19.

Jesus Christ is both Man and God, and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist, see Colossians 1:17.

Not only did Christ create everything, but He also did it for Himself, and not only does everything come from Him, but it also goes back to Him, compare with Colossians 1:16.

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us", see Romans 5:8.

Jesus is the first of all God’s creation to have died and been raised to immortality, see Revelation 1:5.

"If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved", see Romans 10:9.

"Habemus autem thesaurum istum in vasis fictilibus, ut sublimitas sit virtutis Dei et non ex nobis. In omnibus tribulationem patimur, sed non angustiamur; aporiamur, sed non destituimur; persecutionem patimur, sed non derelinquimur; deicimur, sed non perimus; semper mortificationem Iesu in corpore nostro circumferentes, ut et vita Iesu in corpore nostro manifestetur. Semper enim nos, qui vivimus, in mortem tradimur propter Iesum, ut et vita Iesu manifestetur in carne nostra mortali", 2 Corinthians 4:7 - 11.

Who Is Responsible For Christ's Death?

Mors ultima ratio.

Christ suffered for our sins, the Jew for the non-Jew, and compare with 1 Peter 3:18.

Jesus Himself said that He laid down His life of His own free will, see John 10:17 - 18.

Some say that the religious leaders of Israel were responsible for Jesus’ death, compare with Matthew 26:3 - 4.

Others say that Roman soldiers were the ones who actually crucified Jesus, and therefore were responsible for Christ's death, compare with Matthew 27:27 - 37.

Yet other people say sinners are responsible for the death of Christ, compare with Romans 4:25, and watch http://video.msn.com/video.aspx/?mkt=sv-se&tab=s1196324320355&vid=3a232b54-e4c9-425b-a822-8ec389fca406&playlist=videoByTag:tag:sweden_soapbox:ns:uuv_Gallery:mk:uv-en-us:vs:1&wa=wsignin1.0.

What is unquestionable is that Jesus was killed on the Cross, and that He rose again the third day, see 1 Corinthians 15:3 - 4.

There were tensions between Jews and Romans at the time of Jesus Christ.

However, Jews and Romans are twin brothers, and descendants of Jacob and Esau respectively.

Jesus is the latinized form of Esau. It is like a French citizen named Fritz.

The Jews actually did not kill the Jew Jesus, because He was one of them.

Pontius Pilate and the Roman soldiers did not decide to kill Jesus either, because why would they kill a Jew who honored their Roman ancestor Esau?

Those, who bear the ultimate responsibility for the death of Jesus Christ, are in fact the same influential group, who decided to kill Alexander the Great three centuries earlier.

This group is still in charge of all important decisions in the world, and they are the ones who hinder world peace and oppose the Kingdom of God, see Ephesians 6:12.

Concerning Christ's enemies we read:
"And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus. Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified", see John 12:20 - 23.

When the traitor Judas Iscariot did the works of these people, Jesus accordingly said: "Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him", see John 13:31.

The Apostle Paul said concerning those persons, who were behind Christ's death, and who three centuries earlier had decided to kill Alexander the Great: "The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply", see Titus 1:12 - 13.

This is also one reason why the New Testament must be restored to its original Latin.

"Dixit quidam ex illis, proprius ipsorum propheta: 'Cretenses semper mendaces, malae bestiae, ventres pigri'. Testimonium hoc verum est. Quam ob causam increpa illos dure, ut sani sint in fide", Titus 1:12 - 13.

Christianity Is The Best Religion

Multi famam, conscientiam pauci verentur. (Pliny)

"God is not the author of confusion", see 1 Corinthians 14:33.

Without the Resurrection all religious faith is useless, compare with 1 Corinthians 15:14.

Christianity is the best religion, because Jesus is the only way to God since He is God.

The Resurrection of Christ is proof of the Deity of Jesus, and that He provides the only means of redemption for mankind.

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me", see John 14:6.

Britons Believe In Christ's Resurrection

Locus enim est principium generationis rerum. (Roger Bacon)

Over half of Britons believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, see http://www.christiantoday.com/article/over.half.of.britons.believe.jesus.rose.from.the.dead/17383.htm.

Humanity is more intelligent than one could believe.

What is maybe even more interesting is that 7% of Athiests - who do not believe that there is a God - believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God.

In the light of this strange result it is not difficult to understand Albert Einstein's reflection, when he said: "Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school".

"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God", see 1 John 5:13.

Surprisingly, 13% of people claim that Jesus never existed, despite the fact that respected historians unanimously agree that He did.

The reason why Jesus not is here now - although He rose from the dead - is that He prepares a place for us according to His promise.

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you", see John 14:2.

The Latin Patriarch Of Jerusalem Steps Down

Qui bene cantat, bis orat.

The Latin Patriarchal Diocese of Jerusalem, was established in 1099 A.D. with the Crusaders.

Latin Patriarch and Archbishop of Jerusalem Michel Sabbah, tendered his resignation to Rome on Wednesday - his 75th birthday - in accordance with Church tradition, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1205420731339&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

"Unfortunately this land remains a land of bloodshed, ignoring its own vocation", the Palestinian prelate writes.

Before Michel Sabbah, the post has been dominated by Italians.

Today, there are four Bishops with the title of Patriarch of Jerusalem:

- the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem
- the Melkite Patriarch of Jerusalem
- the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem
- the Greek Byzantine Patriarch of Jerusalem

Sabbah, who is known for his outspoken criticism of Israel, and also for his opposition to the West Bank security barrier, is expected to stay in his post for the coming weeks.

Then he will be replaced by a Jordanian - the Archbishop Fouad Twal.

In December, Michel Sabbah said that Israel should abandon its Jewish character in favor of a normal state for Christians, Muslims, and Jews.

"Patriarch Sabbah was the first to speak in the name of the Christian faithful, not in the name of the Church", said Father David Neuhaus, professor of Scripture at the Roman Catholic Seminary in Beit Jala, near Bethlehem.

We should, however, always remember that the future Israeli State-Church Superpower, will be ruled from Jerusalem by Jesus Christ and 24 Levites, see for example Revelation 4:4, 10 - 11, and compare with Luke 1:5, 8 - 9, 32 - 33, and Hebrews 7:5.

Christ Had To Come From The Tribe Of Judah

Fallaces sunt rerum species. (Seneca)

"The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be", see Genesis 49:10.

Scripture tells us that Christ had to be from David's family.

"And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever", see 2 Samuel 7:16.

Clearly the ruling Messiah had to come from the Royal family of David, compare with Revelation 5:5.

We read in Luke 1:32 - 33: "He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end".

"Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth", see Jeremiah 23:5

As clear as Jesus is Esau in Latin, and that He came from the tribe of Judah, the ruling Messiah had also to come from the family of David.

The Holy Week

Hebdomada Sancta.

Thousands of pilgrims have celebrated Palm Sunday in Jerusalem, which marks the beginning of Passion Week, the Holy Week.

Palm Sunday marks Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem 2.000 years ago.

According to the New Testament, people threw palm branches and spread their clothes on the road to welcome Christ, see Matthew 21:8.

"Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest", see Luke 19:38.

Throughout this week Christians worldwide will mark the Holy Week, which will lead up to Good Friday, when pilgrims will visit the Via Dolorosa, following Jesus' path to the 14 Stations of the Cross.

The Holy Week culminates on Easter Sunday when Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you", see Ephesians 4:32.

Easter Sunday is also the reason why Christians are Sunday-keepers, because Sunday recalls the day of Christ's Resurrection, compare with John 20:19, Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Revelation 1:10, and Revelation 12:1.

"Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen", see Luke 24:5 - 6.

The Shroud Of Turin Accidentally Washed With Red T-Shirt

Ad absurdum.

The Shroud of Turin is an ancient linen cloth believed to bear the image of Christ, and it is considered by many clerics and devotees to be one of the holiest relics of the Christian faith.

Now the shroud of Turin has got a shade of pink, after it accidentally has been washed with a red T-shirt.

The Shroud of Turin was discovered in 1354, and it is thought by some to be the very garment Jesus Christ was buried in.

Though it has suffered oxidation and fire damage over the centuries, this is the first time that the shroud has been harmed in a laundry-related mishap.

"Simply because the shroud has been given a slight pinkish tint does not in any way diminish its sanctity", Vatican spokesman Cardinal Giovanni Lajolo said during a press conference.

The Cardinal continued: "It is still very much the icon of the suffering of the innocent of all times".

According to Cardinal Lajolo, the damage occurred when Pope Benedict XVI, whose turn it was to do the laundry, did not notice that a brand-new, bright-red Hanes Beefy-T, belonging to Cardinal Angelo Sodano, had been placed inside of the consecrated cleansing vessel - the Holy Whirlpool 24934 top-load washer.

"And who are we to question or reject the ways the Lord works through our laundry?", Cardinal Lajolo asked.

But my wife told me: "This is what happens when a man does the laundry!".

"Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do", see Luke 23:34.

In the light of what Jesus said from the cross, what are you going to do about forgiving others?

Now the Shroud has turned to blood, see http://www.theonion.com/content/news/shroud_of_turin_accidentally.

Cardinal Lajolo said: "We must not allow ourselves to fall into despair, for, as sinners, we are flawed and must seek forgiveness in the Lord alone".

Cardinal Lajolo then added: "We continue to look to God for divine guidance as to the purity and virtue of using a color-safe bleach".

Who Will Be John McCain's Vice President?

Faber est suae quisque fortunae. (Appius Claudius Caecus)

An American woman who recently levitated, demonstrates paranormal psychic powers, see http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=58835.

Recent examples of demonic attacks show that Christ will return sooner than expected, see Revelation 22:7, 12.

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition", see 2 Thessalonians 2:3.

We read in Revelation 13:1: "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy".

Now the seven heads are: Atlantis - Lucifer, Egypt - Akhenaton, Babylon - Nebuchadnezzar, Assyria - Sennacherib, Greece - Alexander the Great, The Roman Empire - Nero, and The Third Reich - Adolf Hitler.

"And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition", see Revelation 17:11.

By identifying correctly the identity of the dragon's seven heads, it is easier to understand the identity of the beast's heads.

As for the ten horns, they are the ten Kings of Atlantis: the Nephilims or Titans.

"There were giants in the earth in those days", see Genesis 6:4.

Giant aliens have been roaming this planet longer than scientists believed, as a giant alien skeleton uncovered in Nashville proves, see http://lotgk.wordpress.com/2007/11/26/giant-alien-skeleton-unearthed/.

The size of the giant alien is estimated to be 42 feet tall and preliminary bone forensics believe the alien to be that of a young male.

The beast has after the ten horns, a little horn that arises after them, see Daniel 7:24, "whose look was more stout than his fellows", see Daniel 7:20.

The beast, the king of fierce countenance, is more stout than his fellows, and understands dark sentences, see Daniel 8:23. But he is called a little horn, because he is not 42 feet tall.

Concerning the future American President, since John McCain is old, and has a history of cancer, the Vice President seems to step in already after one year.

The rule of the Antichrist will thus be limited to seven years during the tribulation, compare with Daniel 9:27.

Revelation 9:11 explains the name of the Antichrist in Latin to be "Exterminans", or "Terminator" in English.

Israeli Researcher: Moses Was High On Drugs

Quid non ebrietas dissignat? (Horace)

Benny Shanon, an Israeli professor of cognitive philosophy, says that Moses was high on drugs, see http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=4392361.

Moses was oftentimes stoned, and probably also when he set the Ten Commandments in stone.

Moses on Mount Sinai, is an event that joined Moses and the people of Israel, under the effect of narcotics.

Shanon says one of the psychoactive plants, harmal, found in the Sinai and elsewhere in the Middle East, has long been regarded by Jews in the region as having magical and curative powers.

We know that Moses was a murderer, see Exodus 2:12, and that no murderer has eternal life, see 1 John 3:15.

We also know that for example Noah was an alcoholic, see Genesis 9:21.

But that Moses used to be high on drugs is surprising news, nevertheless compare with Exodus 3:2.

No wonder then that God manifested Himself in Jesus, see Hebrews 1:3, to give us a better covenant based on liberty and freedom, see Galatians 5:13, and Hebrews 8:6 - 7.

"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed", see John 8:36.

UMed - The European Union For The Mediterranean

Unitas mirabile vinculum.

All are one in Christ Jesus, see Galatians 3:28.

The Apostles and the first preachers of the gospel formed a union founded upon the New Testament Gospel.

Now, the European Union's chief executive, Jose Manuel Barroso, gave his backing on Thursday to plans drawn up by French President Nicolas Sarkozy for a Union for the Mediterranean.

Nicolas Sarkozy has particularly highlighted the issue of energy supply as one main pillar of the new union.

On March 3 Nicolas Sarkozy and Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed that the proposed bloc would include all 27 EU member states, see http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/192065,eus-barroso-backs-sarkozys-mediterranean-plans.html.

Asked about German-French relations, Angela Merkel said: "What is important is that we always come together at the end of the day".

So true, so very true. Very well said.

"Behold, the kingdom of God is within you", see Luke 17:21.

The Union for the Mediterranean - UMed - is an excellent initiative, which will streamline a single European Mediterranean policy.

"For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body", see Romans 8:22 - 23.

Conventional Theories About Meteorites Are Challenged

Concordia res parvae crescent.

"And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great", see Revelation 16:21.

The Meteorite which ploughed into the Peruvian countryside last year, should have shattered and dispersed long before reaching the ground, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7292863.stm.

Scientists have been examining samples of the space rock and the 15m-wide water-filled crater it dug out in Carancas last September.

Although the Meteorite was a relatively fragile stony Meteorite, fragments could not escape the shock-wave barrier, at the velocity it was traveling through the atmosphere.

The Meteorite was obviosly traveling much faster than would be expected at the moment of impact, or at about 24.000 km/h, which is 15.000 mph.

This event challenges conventional theories about Meteorites, and it shows that our planet is much more vulnerable for Meteorites and Asteroids than earlier thought.

"And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail", see Revelation 11:19.

Vatican Warns: Recycle Or Go To Hell

Vincit qui se vincit.

The Vatican says it is time to modernize the list of the seven Deadly Sins to fit a global world, see http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?xml=/earth/2008/03/10/eavatican110.xml.

There are seven Deadly Sins in the Bible, compare with Proverbs 6:16 - 19:

1. Lust (Luxuria)

2. Gluttony (Gula)

3. Greed (Avaritia)

4. Sloth (Acedia)

5. Wrath (Ira)

6. Envy (Invidia)

7. Pride (Superbia)

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

To every vice there is a corresponding Holy Virtue:

1. Chastity (Castitas)

2. Temperance (Temperantia)

3. Charity (Liberalitas)

4. Diligence (Industria)

5. Patience (Patientias)

6. Kindness (Humanitas)

7. Humility (Humilitas)

"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly", see Romans 5:6.

The new seven Deadly Sins, according to the Vatican, are:

1. Environmental pollution

2. Genetic manipulation

3. Accumulating excessive wealth

4. Inflicting poverty

5. Drug trafficking and consumption

6. Morally debatable experiments

7. Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God", see John 3:16 - 18.

The question is then: Which are the new seven Holy Virtues according to the Vatican?

1. Recycling plastic bags?

2. Medical ignorance?

3. Accumulating excessive poverty?

4. Inflicting wealth?

5. Selling and eating bananas?

6. Moral experiments?

7. Defending the human nature?

What a mess!

"But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death", see James 1:14 - 15.

Tsunami Will Strike The Eastern Mediterranean Again

Optimus magister, bonus liber.

Tsunami that devastated the ancient world will return.

The Tsunami waves of July 21, 365 A.D., which claimed lives from Alexandria in Egypt, and Greece, to modern-day Dubrovnik in the Adriatic, was generated by a massive quake that occurred under the western tip of the Greek island of Crete, experts believe, compare with http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/vaop/ncurrent/abs/ngeo151.html.

A Tsunami-generating quake will strike the eastern Mediterranean very soon again, see Revelation 12:15, and compare with Luke 21:25.

Then it is said that men's hearts will fail them for fear, see Luke 21:26.

This Tsunami will also be a sure sign of Christ's Second Coming.

"When ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors", see Matthew 24:33.

The journal Nature Geoscience, warns for a Tsunami-generating quake and states: "Repetition of such an event would have catastrophic consequences for today's densely-populated Mediterranean coastal regions".

That there has been only one other such event in the past 1.650 years should focus our attention on the modern-day Tsunami hazard in the eastern Mediterranean.

According to AFP, the Roman historian Ammianus Marcellus wrote, awed at a Tsunami that struck the then-thriving port of Alexandria in 365 A.D.: "The sea was driven back, and its waters flowed away to such an extent that the deep sea bed was laid bare and many kinds of sea creatures could be seen".

"Huge masses of water flowed back when least expected, and now overwhelmed and killed many thousands of people", see http://www.afp.com/english/news/stories/newsmlmmd.b3f892f31dfca9f8c8fb65ae907bd576.3e1.html.

The last Tsunami to hit the eastern Mediterranean occurred on August 8, 1303, and such events occur approximately once every 800 years.

Christ's Precious Blood Of The Everlasting Covenant Of Peace

Transit umbra, sed lux permanet.

The God of peace, brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus - that great shepherd of the sheep - through the blood of the everlasting covenant, see Hebrews 13:20.

The New Testament is sometimes called "a better testament", see Hebrews 7:22 and 8:6.

In fact the New Testament is "the everlasting covenant", see Hebrews 13:20 and Revelation 14:6, because it is the best testament.

The New Testament established the spiritual kingdom of Christ, compare with Romans 14:17, on the Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Apostles, see Acts 2:2 - 4.

The blood of Christ is infinitely precious, because it is written that Jesus lives forever to make intercession for all those who "come unto God by Him", see Hebrews 7:25.

The New Testament is also called the "Testament of Peace", because the enmity for Adam’s transgression has been removed, and now the reconciliation with God is secured by Christ, compare with Ephesians 2:16.

The death of Christ is not only an opportunity for men to be saved, but Christ’s death guarantees the salvation of all who were named in it, see John 6:39, and Revelation 20:15.

"Rejoice, because your names are written in heaven", see Luke 10:20.

BibleLands And Antisemitism

Nihil aliud scit necessitas quam vincere. (Publilius Syrus)

According to Christian Today the Church of Scotland’s Church and Society Council and World Mission Council has called on the British Government to work with the international community to end the Gaza blockade.

I do not know what kind of Protestants these people are.

Anyway, I am a Swedish Lutheran and I do not agree with this Scottish Protestant sect whatsoever.

Why should we Protestants support people, who have launched more than 2000 rockets against Israel since 2005?

The chief of the Scottish Protestants must be Satan himself.

As a Swedish Protestant I think it is very important we stay alienated from people, who has the harm of Israel as their main objective.

We live in a world with many different religions. We have Scottish Protestants, we have the Mormon Church, and we have Al-Quida for example.

But in the end we all know that organized religion, and other examples of private military armies, do not have the answer, except for perhaps the Greek Orthodox Church.

A Lasting Solution For Jerusalem

Fronti nulla fides.

"And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire", see Luke 3:9.

Eight students have been murdered in an unacceptable gun attack - while studying the Old Testament - in a Jerusalem religious school.

The Israelis got their Promised Land back in 1948, and since then there has not been one single month without any violence.

Do we need more proof that the Arabs must be removed from Israel, see Galatians 4:30, and also that Jerusalem must be united, see Romans 11:25 - 26?

Three things are necessary for the return of Christ:

The state of Israel must be restored, see Acts 1:6, Jerusalem must be in Jewish hands, see Hebrews 12:22, and the Temple must be rebuilt, see Revelation 11:1.

"And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city", see Mark 6:11.

Barack Obama's Sermon On The Mount Citation Is Dead Wrong

Nemo malus felix. (Juvenal)

Successful American Presidents - like Ronald Reagan - had their Christian faith playing an important role for their successful presidency.

When I visited New York City in 1990, I lived in Upper West Side, and I immediately fell in love with Manhattan and New York City.

One of my best friends there was unfortunately homosexual, and as a consequence of that he died of AIDS.

I remember that I told him that I believed homosexual living was wrong, but he did not share my view concerning this subject - until the very last moments of his life.

I was not myself present when he uttered his last words, but according to those present, he said he recognized that he had himself to blaim for his premature death caused by his homosexual lifestyle, which he repented from, just before dying.

The reason I mention this is that Barack Obama recently invoked the Sermon on the Mount as a reason for why he supports gay civil unions.

There is actually no support for gay civil unions in the Sermon on the Mount, see Matthew 5:3 - 7:27.

As a matter of fact nothing in the New Testament declares support for gay marriage.

The Christian life gives us freedom, but we should not abuse it, see 1 Corinthians 6:12.

The New Testament clearly condemns same-sex couples and homosexuality according to Romans 1:26 - 27:

"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet".

AIDS is a deadly disease for which there is no cure.

Homosexuality poses a dangerous public health risk, and should therefore not be treated as a civil rights issue, but instead as a true health crisis, because people are dying of AIDS every day.

People should be protected from exposure to a deadly disease like AIDS, which is perhaps the most important health care issue of our time.

Some countries in the world do not even have enough space to bury their dead in the AIDS pandemic.

More than 25 million people have died of AIDS since 1981, and Africa has 12 million AIDS orphans.

In Defense Of Creation

Una hirundo non facit ver. (Horace)

The Evolution theory is based upon ignorance, whereas the Creation theory is scientifically based.

God existed from the beginning, and He has created all things, see John 1:1 and 1:3, 10.

The Evolution theory is false, because without anything to start with, nothing could have been created.

To believe that there was nothing in the beginning, and that then through evolution, things came into existence is plainly stupid.

How can anyone believe, that everything we see came into existence from nothing, without God first creating it?

The Creation theory consequently also explains the existence of God.

And now: "if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection", see Romans 6:5.

Christ defeated all principalities and powers on the Cross, compare with Colossians 2:15, and since Christ has atoned for all sin, we are now free indeed from Satan's bondage, compare with John 8:36.

Everything was created by God through Jesus Christ, see Colossians 1:16, but the only way to Jesus is through the Cross, see Luke 9:23, and 14:27, and compare with John 14:6.

The Rich Are Chased In Tax-Free Havens

Pecunia in arbotis non crescit.

"Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you", see James 5:1.

Times Online writes that the chancellor Alistair Darling is to step up hostilities against Britain’s super-rich by pressing for sanctions against Monaco, the Mediterranean tax haven.

"So far the attention has been on Liechtenstein, but Monaco is the goldmine", said a Whitehall official. "Germany has got the bit between its teeth now and Monaco is where they want to go next – and we’re right with them".

Many high-profile names and hundreds of London hedge fund and private equity managers also live in Monaco, which is just 1hr 40min from London’s City airport by private jet.

This latest European tax development will of course benefit Dubai and Quatar.

The European Union is apparently also stepping up its tax policy concerning Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man.

Others in the EU think it consequently is about time the U.S. stop tax evasion to the Cayman Islands and Bahamas.

But we should remember that unemployment, social unrest, and collapsing stock markets, have their roots in unjust and high taxes.

The witch-hunt on the rich, has with todays summit meeting in Brussels of the European Union's 27 Finance Ministers, moved one echelon higher, and from the former Soviet Union to the European Union.

Liechtenstein, Andorra, and Monaco, are some of the European states on the list of countries whose low taxes and strict bank secrecy are seen as encouraging tax evasion in neighboring countries.

We are talking about a modern powerplay, where the big is pitted against the small.

It is Germany against Liechtenstein, France against Monaco, big countries, with high taxes and cumbersome bureaucracies - often republics - against small efficient countries with low or no taxes - often monarchies.

Maybe socialism will soon have conquered all of Europe in the name of the "sacred" European Union?

The U.S. have earlier said it is also investigating its citizens suspected of using small principalities to hide wealth.

But what is most astonishing is that Russia and China now emerge as the new tax-free havens for the rich and famous.

In the millennial kingdom, see Revelation 20:4, the Levites will collect the 10% tax, and since tax collecting and tax management belong to their religious office, this will mean that tax money in the future not will be spent on unnecessary wars, or unnecessary bureaucracy, see Hebrews 7:5.

Jesus Christ - The Bread From Heaven

Mihi cura futuri.

"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God", see Matthew 4:4.

Israel's unleavened bread reminds the Israelites of the Exodus, the haste and the eagerness, with which they left their life of bondage in Egypt, on their way to a life of liberty, as a new nation in Canaan, see Exodus 12:39, and compare with Exodus 16:4.

But for Christians, that flight is a symbol of our entrance into the new life in the Kingdom of God, compare with Revelation 11:8.

The manna from heaven preserved the lives of the Israelites, during their journey through the wilderness.

Christians, on the other hand, rejoice that in Jesus - the bread from heaven - our lives are nourished and kept safe as we journey toward the fullness of eternal life.

"But there shall not an hair of your head perish", see Luke 21:18, and compare with Matthew 10:30.

"Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world", see John 6:32 -33.

When we Christians partake of Jesus, the bread of God, we have communion not just with one another, but with Christ our Father, compare with John 14:9.

"And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me", see Luke 22:19.

The showbread reminds the Israelites that God is the provider and sustainer of their Earthly lives.

But we Christians, know that in Jesus Christ - the true bread - our lives are lifted up, and that we now live with the Lord God "in heavenly places", see Ephesians 2:6.

Violence Escalates In Southern Israel

Necessitas non habet legem.

The Prince of the power of the air controls one third of the angels, see Revelation 12:4.

"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience", see Ephesians 2:2.

The symbol for "Air" is similar to a Pyramid. And the opposing Spirit is biblically identified as "the prince of the kingdom of Persia", see Daniel 10:13, 20.

Saddam Hussein was mistakenly taken for the King of Persia.

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed", see Galatians 1:8.

The principality of the Persian kingdom is often depicted as a warmongering spirit seeking to dominate through military power.

In the sad conflict in the Middle East, between Jews and Palestinians, Israel has started an offensive on Palestinians, after hundreds of rockets were fired at Israel from the Gaza strip a couple of days ago.

The whole Middle East conflict is very tragic because it is a family feud:

The Arabic language is a Hebrew dialect, and most things in the Koran have their roots in the Bible, and are imported from the Jews, who mentally rule over the Arabs and the Muslims.

And Persia was founded by Perseus, and was thus established through the Greeks, who mentally rule over the Persians, Iranians, and Muslims.

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places", see Ephesians 6:12.

When Paul referred to the "third heaven", see 2 Corinthians 12:2, he was speaking concerning the three heavens which include the domain of air, which is controlled by Satan.

"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil", see Hebrews 2:14.

Satan's nuclear clock is ticking.

"And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth", see Zechariah 14:12.

Wars usually are both stupid and unnecessary.

But the most stupid wars of all must be wars against Israel and Greece.

When Jews and Greeks demand something - like their land for example - they have already negotiated the issue with God.

Therefore always give the Jews and the Greeks what they want, otherwise You will soon find Yourselves fighting against God Himself. And that is a battle that never can or should be won.

When Will The Kingdom Of God Come?

Si finis bonus est, totum bonum erit.

The Old Testament was about how to live according to a world ruled by Satan and the wicked, before a promised Messiah would come.

The Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew, but with time the text got corrupted, and it is best kept through the Greek Septuagint.

2000 years ago Messiah finally came. He declared that the law and the prophets were until John the Baptist, see Luke 16:16.

So the Old Testament was done away with, and got replaced, see Hebrews 8:6 - 7.

Thus we got the New Testament, which is about how to live according to a world ruled by Satan and the wicked, before Christ's Second Coming.

But the New Testament was also given as a promise that after Armageddon, Satan will be gone, and there will be peace, which will be the beginning of eternity with God.

The New Testament was originally written in Latin, but with time the text got corrupted, and it is best kept through the Greek Textus Receptus.

Christ promised to make all things new, see Revelation 21:5.

Jesus said: "But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you", see Luke 11:20.

In consequence the Pharisees asked Jesus: When will the kingdom of God come?, see Luke 17:20, and compare with 2 Samuel 7:16.

And in Acts 1:6 the disciples asked: "wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?".

Jesus will come again in power and glory to set up his physical kingdom on Earth, see Matthew 24:27, and then on Mars, see Revelation 21:1, and compare with Luke 1:33.

The Kingdom is among us, in the form of our risen Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, compare with Romans 5:5.

To all who desire to have Jesus become their Lord and Savior He offers the gift of eternal life, see Romans 6:23.

This invitation is open until the very moment, when Christ will come again to set up his Kingdom, see Matthew 25:10.

Then all who have rejected Christ will stand before Him, and be sent into the second death forever, which is hell, see Matthew 25:41, and Revelation 20:14 - 15.

"Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation", see 2 Corinthians 6:2.
