Happy Walpurgis Night!

Omnia vincit amor; et nos cedamus amori. (Vergil)

Walpurgis - Swedish: Valborgsmässoafton or Valborg - is one of the main holidays during the year in Sweden, alongside Christmas and Midsummer holiday, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walpurgis_Night.

It is celebrated the night from April 30 to May 1.

One of the main Valborg traditions in Sweden is to light large bonfires, and sing traditional songs of spring, often spread by students. Alcoholic beverages like Absolut, sparkling wine, and Champagne, are used plentifully.

The Walpurgis or Valborg festival is named after Saint Walpurga, in Scandinavia called Valborg, born in Wessex - one of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms that preceded the Kingdom of England - in 710.

Saint Walpurga or Valborg died at Heidenheim, 25 February 779, after helping to Christianize Germany, see the comment made by the Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt on his blog, http://carlbildt.wordpress.com/2008/04/30/sa-blev-det-da-valborg/.

Walpurga is the patroness of for example Antwerp here in Belgium, and she is also celebrated in Bavaria.

Saint Walpurga was canonized on 1 May 870 by Pope Adrian II.

The Swedish, Finnish, and German calendar commemorates the translation of her relics on 1 May.

This is the reason why Walpurgis night, Valborgsmässoafton, or Walpurgisnacht, is celebrated on the night of April 30, the eve of Saint Walpurga's feast.

So tonight we celebrate The Night Of Walpurgis or Walpurgisnacht.

The Church Of England Considers Women Bishops

Mea mihi conscientia pluris est quam omnium sermo. (Cicero)

In England, the House of Bishops will discuss the report of the Legislative Drafting Group, which considers proposals to allow for women Bishops, see http://www.christiantoday.com/article/church.of.england.to.consider.women.bishops/18441.htm.

When the Church of England now moves towards ordaining women Bishops, it takes a brave step in the right direction.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus", see Galatians 3:28.

The New Testament considers women equal with men, when it comes to preaching the gospel to every creature, compare with Mark 16:15.

In consequence, we whould pray that women soon will be consecrated Bishops in the Church of England, as well as in the Catholic Church, and in the Greek Orthodox Church, because this is in line with the will of Christ, compare with http://ohlundonline.blogspot.com/2008/04/pope-benedict-xvi-visits-america.html.

Pray At The Pump

Probae esti in segetem sunt deteriorem datae fruges, tamen ipsae suaptae enitent. (Accius)

A Washington, DC, man, Rocky Twyman, has started a movement - to pray for lower gas prices - that he believes will bring relief to people, who are finding it harder and harder to buy gas just to get to work, see http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=77374.

When lawmakers in Washington, DC, are wringing their hands about record high gasoline prices, others are putting their hands together, and praying for help from God, compare with John 15:7, and Revelation 6:6.

So volunteers from a Washington, DC, Church soup kitchen, now launch this movement called: "Pray at the Pump", compare with John 9:31.

Twyman says he and his fellow volunteers, at a Church soup kitchen, launched "Pray at the Pump" Wednesday, at a gas station in Washington, DC, compare with John 14:13.

Twyman says nothing else has worked. Therefore he urges motorists to pray for lower gasoline prices when they fuel up, compare with 1 John 3:22.

"We took our cars over to the Shell station across the street and we got some gas, and then we asked God to lower these prices. Other people just came up to us and joined right in. I thought the attendant was going to run us away from the gas station, but he didn't", Twyman says triumphantly, and see 1 John 5:14 - 15.

Twyman wants all Americans to pray at the gas station: "When they go to those pumps, instead of cursing and saying all kinds of vulgar things, we want them to just drop their heads and just say: 'God, deliver us from these high prices' ", Twyman urges.

Twyman insists: "If God brought down the walls of Jericho, when the ancient Hebrews prayed, then divine intervention can bring down gas prices, too", and see Matthew 21:22.

Catastrophic Nuke Terrorism "Inevitable", Says Experts

Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero. (Horace)

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come", see 2 Timothy 3:1.

The words contain a warning of imminent dangers.

There are four things in this New Testament verse: First, the manner of the warning: "This know also". Secondly, the evil itself that we are warned of: "Perilous times". Thirdly, the way of their introduction: "They shall come". Fourthly, the time and season of it: "They shall come in the last days".

It is the duty of Ministers of the Gospel to give warning of impending dangers, and compare with Ezekiel 33:8 - 9.

Clifford May - President of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a conservative group - told Cybercast News Service that "the ramifications" of a nuclear attack on a major metropolitan area in the United States "would be catastrophic", see http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewNation.asp?Page=/Nation/archive/200804/NAT20080425b.html.

He added: "America would survive as a nation, but it would never again be the same".

In an interview to air on "60 Minutes" on Sunday, Maj. Gen. Eliezer Shkedy, said about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s vow to destroy Israel: "I think it is a very serious threat to the state of Israel, but more than this, to the whole world", see http://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/Israeli_General_Warns_on_/2008/04/25/90934.html.

The commander of Israel’s air force says he takes Iran’s threats against his nation very seriously and compares them to Hitler’s warnings against Jews before the Holocaust.

The General added: "We should be prepared for everything…".

"The time is short", see 1 Corinthians 7:29, "the judge standeth before the door", see James 5:9.

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man", see Luke 21:36.

Will The World End In 2012?

Nihil est ab omni parte beatum. (Horace)

NASA predicts that a gigantic solar storm will hit the Earth in 2012, which will be 30 - 50 percent greater than anything before.

"For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven", see Malachi 4:1.

The pressure under the Yellowstone National Park in the United States is building steadily, and geologists have set 2012 as a likely date for the big bang of this super volcano.

"The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage", see Isaiah 24:19 - 20.

Will the Earth be consumed by fire, and experience a Polar Shift, and severe Earthquakes?

"But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men", see 2 Peter 3:7.

A shift in the Polar Axis could actually tear the Earth apart.

"And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places", see Revelation 6:14.

We know that Earthquakes gradually have increased over the years.

"And there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great", see Revelation 16:18.

Scientists in Europe have built the world's largest particle accelerator, which is a 27km tunnel designed to smash atoms together at its first serious experiment in 2012 - which could crush the world.

"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away", see Matthew 24:35.

On December 21, 2012, at 10am GMT, our solar system will intersect with the Galactic Equator, which only happens every 26.000 years. This alignment with the center of the galaxy allows for maximum mass and thus maximum gravity.

"The inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left", see Isaiah 24:6, compare with Nahum 1:5, and Revelation 16:8.

A massive solar blast from the Sun in 2012 could burn up the Earth, as could a collision with an Asteroid or a Comet, compare with Revelation 8:7 - 11.

"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up", see 2 Peter 3:10.

In the New Testament, the date for Armageddon, has been set down for 2012, see Revelation 16:16, compare with Matthew 24:7, and Luke 21:25 - 26.

"And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven", see Luke 21:11.

As it was in the days of Noah and Lot, so shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed, see Luke 17:26 - 37.

"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be", see Matthew 24:21.

But our civilization will never end, compare with Luke 1:33, Ephesians 3:21, 1 Thessalonians 4:17, Revelation 11:15, and 22:5.

"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory", see Matthew 24:30.

What Do They Sing In Heaven?

Tantum religio potuit suadere malorum. (Lucretius)

God spared not the old world, but according to the Toronto Star, the world population crashed 70.000 years ago, and the number of people fell to 2.000 persons, compare with 2 Peter 2:5.

The New Testament faith is a singing faith, and it presents a new song to the Lord:
"And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth", see Revelation 5:9 - 10.

Yesterday, Pope Benedict XVI, said something brilliant. He said that there is "a mysterious and deep kinship between music and hope, between song and eternal life", see http://www.catholicnews.com/.

There are "twelve tribes of Israel", see Genesis 35:22 - 26, and God said in Jeremiah 33:17, that David’s royal line would never end, compare with Luke 1:32 - 33.

The Lord said: "I will surely rend the kingdom from thee", see 1 Kings 11:11, which the Lord later confirmed when He said: "But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out", see Matthew 8:12.

According to 1 Kings 11:13, God promised to preserve one tribe, and only one tribe followed God - the tribe of Judah - see 1 Kings 12:20.

Before Israel separated into two different nations, all Jews were considered Israelites, but after the division, however, Jews were no longer called Israelites, but Judah or Jews, compare with 2 Kings 16:5 - 6.

This is the reason why Jesus told His disciples: "But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel", see Matthew 10:6.

Judah and Israel were different nations, but God delivered the same punishment for rebellion, compare with 1 Kings 14:30.

Israel became amalgamated into Assyria, whereas Judah became amalgamated into Babylon.

Israel never returned to the land of Palestine, but Judah did, compare with Revelation 12:13 - 17.

Nevertheless, Christ did not only want His disciples to take the Gospel to the Israelites - who were removed from Samaria, and absorbed into the Assyrian Empire hundreds of years before - and therefore He said: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature", see Mark 16:15, because "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved", see Romans 10:13.

Christ promised that "there shall be one fold", see John 10:16, compare with Revelation 12:1. We know that "salvation is of the Jews", see John 4:22, and also that "all Israel shall be saved", see Romans 11:26.

And today, in this 21st century, politics and religion go together as naturally as butter goes with bread.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place", see 2 Corinthians 2:14.

McCain To New Orleans: Never Again

Caelum non animum mutant qui trans mare currunt. (Horace)

John McCain said on Thursday: "As President of the United States, I'm not going to leave anybody behind", and McCain called the response to Katrina: "a perfect storm" of mismanagement by federal, state, and local governments.

Katrina, the most costly natural disaster ever to strike the United States, roared ashore in August 2005, killing more than 1.800 people and displacing more than 250.000. Total damages were estimated to be around $125 billion, see http://news.aol.com/story/_a/mccain-to-new-orleans-never-again/n20080424150909990015?ecid=RSS0001.

"Never again, never again, will a disaster of this nature be handled in the disgraceful way it was handled", McCain declared.

Of course John McCain is right on this issue, and it is great that he talks about this. I also think the EU should do more for New Orleans.

The first thing to do is to make the Louisiana State organization more effective. This can be achieved by moving the permanence of the Louisiana Governor from Baton Rouge to New Orleans.

The next thing to do is to lower the taxes, so that investors can come and invest more.

Gambling should be deregulated and tax exempt in New Orleans, as it is the Cultural Capital of the U.S.

The first Greek Orthodox Church in the U.S.was built in New Orleans, and therefore New Orleans is the Religious Capital of the U.S.

The hurricane Katrina brought New Orleans to its knees, but the city will rise again, with its French Quarter and Central Business District, as potent as great towers.

The sunspots are increasing on the Sun, and the average temperature on our planet has in consequence decreased with 0.7 degrees Celsius in one year.

This cooling down of our planet marks the start and coming of a stern ice age, see http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/961/Wetenschap/article/detail/253881/2008/04/24/-Opwarming-Aarde-is-voorbij-ijstijd-komt-eraan-.dhtml .

New Orleans will accordingly play a very important role in the millennial Kingdom and thousand-year reign of Christ on Earth.

The Pentecostal Church And Their False Prophets

Omnia iam fient quae posse negabam. (Ovid)

Pentecostalism is one of the fastest growing segments of global Christianity, with at least 500 million adherents worldwide.

A major Pentecostal denomination released a paper Tuesday, stating the Church’s position on the Apostolic movement, which includes a warning on false Prophets.

The Christian Post writes concerning false Prophets, that many mainline Christian leaders in for example Africa, have denounced false Prophets, who claim to be anointed Pentecostal Preachers, see http://www.christianpost.com/article/20080423/32074_Pentecostal_Church_Report_Warns_of_False_Prophets.htm.

The problems in the Church with false teachers, who vow miraculous healing, and promises of pending fortune in exchange for Church donations, that are used for their own personal wealth, are very old.

In the section titled - "Recognizing True and False Apostles" - the document states that there are false Apostles, or people who are not appointed by God, but rather carnal men, who usurped the role for their own glory.

To distinguish true from false Apostles, the document gives a list of characteristics of a true Apostle that includes: Ministers with total faithfulness to the writings and teachings of the Apostles; accept personal responsibility for the Lord’s Great Commission, even at great cost to themselves; continue to serve even when no one confers on them a title or recognizes their role; and are free from the love of money.

It will be interesting to witness which Church denomination, that will be the first to endorse Elijah, God's Two Witnesses, see Revelation 11:3 - 14, and compare with http://www.two-olive-trees.org/.

"Si ergo nesciero virtutem vocis, ero ei, cui loquor, barbarus; et, qui loquitur, mihi barbarus", 1 Corinthians 14:11.

What Is The Sign Of Christ's Coming?

Imperium et libertas. (Cicero)

One of the reasons why I believe the Second Coming of Christ is near, is because Israel exists as a nation since 1948, and it is written that Israel would be on Earth in the end times.

"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors", see Matthew 24:32 - 33.

In Jeremiah 31:35 - 36 we read: "Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever".

We know that the Antichrist will make a seven year deal with Israel, and break the deal after 3 1/2 years, see Daniel 9:27, invade Israel, see Luke 21:20, trigger the War of Armageddon, see Revelation 16:16, and then set up a global Empire, see Revelation 13:17, which the Jews will inherit and take over perpetually after 42 months, compare with Revelation 13:5.

When we read the news, we understand that we are very close to "the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ", see Titus 2:13.

For example, we know that attacks on Western nations are coming, see http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/meast/04/22/zawahiri.targets.ap/, and Iran is even accused by Al-Qaida of covering up its involvement with America, in invading the homes of Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq.

But on the other hand - Hillary Clinton, the most merited American Presidential candidate - has said: "I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president we will attack Iran", and she continued: "In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them", see http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=62265.

The cities of the nations will fall, and also every island and mountain, see Revelation 16:19 - 20, compare with Luke 17:26 - 37.

Israel Will Be Fully Restored When The Third Temple Is Built

Libenter homines id quod volunt credunt. (Caesar)

There is no two-state solution for the Middle East, and this has been the opinion of the Church for 2000 years.

The New Testament confirms that Israel will be the center of God’s Kingdom, see Luke 1:32 - 33, Acts 1:6 - 7, and Romans 11:26 - 27.

We should not attempt to establish our own righteousness, but we must look for the Lord God's solutions, as He outlays them in the New Testament.

"When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it", see Ezekiel 33:13.

It is up to each one of us individually on our own, to accept or reject Jesus Christ, see Romans 10:13.

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?", see Mark 8:36.

The establishment of the Israeli Superstate, is important for the achievement of the millennial reign, and for lasting peace and security in the Holy Land.

Brussels: Thousands Support Christians In Iraq

Leve fit, quod bene fertur, onus. (Ovid)

Yesterday in Belgium, thousands of people were manifesting outside EU headquarters in Brussels to demand protection for Christians in Iraq.

Iraqi religious leaders led the protesters, and Iraqi Priest Jacob Idine said: "Above all, religious leaders, the Archbishops and Priests, are being killed in cold blood in Iraq", see http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,351826,00.html.

Idine said the demonstrators wants the EU to help and protect Iraqi people and clergy in Iraq.

German officials on Friday sought backing from other EU nations to accept more Christian refugees from Iraq, arguing that they were particularly vulnerable to violence and discrimination.

Jesus said: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me", see Matthew 25:40.

It may be time for the EU Presidency to invite Vladimir Putin, and discuss how we can solve the Iraqi problem together, and as friends, since the result of the U.S. Presidential election could result in a withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.

Is God Without Form?

Nemo autem regere potest nisi qui et regi. (Seneca)

Caroline Glick writes in her column in Jerusalem Post, that "Jews believe in a God without form", see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?apage=1&cid=1208422633348&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

When Jesus said: "I and my father are one", He did that because many persons think to this day that Jesus and God are two different persons, see John 10:30. This is also the reason why Jesus did not say: I and my Father and the Holy Spirit are one.

Jesus explained this further to the Apostle Philip, when He said: "he that hath seen me hath seen the Father", see John 14:9.

Consequently Jesus said: "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you", see John 14:18, and, "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him", see John 14:21.

Remember how the Apostle Thomas was faithless and how Christ told him: "Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing", see John 20:27.

"And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God", see John 20:28.

Those who today should be united, are unfortunately split up; we have the Israeli tribe of Judah making up the Jewish Nation of Israel, then we have the Roman Catholic Church, and among the 11 "lost tribes" of Israel we also have Protestant Churches, and finally we have the Greek Orthodox Church.

This split picture will cause much harm, because the Antichrist and his troops, see Revelation 12:4, will first go after "the woman", and then he will go after "the remnant of her seed", see Revelation 12:13 - 17.

"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled", see Luke 21:32.

Anyway, the elected Church that is at Babylon, see 1 Peter 5:13 - "elected together with you" - will eventually have learned from past mistakes and Messianic wars, in a distant future - in that advanced technological age - in one thousand years, compare with Ephesians 3:21, and Isaiah 19:25.

Everyone will then understand the importance of keeping united under Christ, see Revelation 20:7 - 10. Besides, God will reside with the believers, compare with Revelation 20:9.

Mandatory Celibacy Behind Clergy Sex Abuse Scandal

Ut desint vires, tamen est laudanda voluntas. (Ovid)

Some of the greatest known men in the Old Testament had multiple wives, like Abraham, David, and Solomon.

In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul reinforces God’s disapproval of polygamy.

The special relationship between husband and wife is to reflect the wonderful intimacy between Christ and His Bride, the Church.

Therefore no polygamist may be a Minister in God’s Church.

Accordingly, 1 Timothy 3:2 states: "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife".

Here we see that one of the qualifications for a minister in Christ’s Church is that he only has one wife at a time.

Thus we know that a Minister in God's Church should be married, but that he/she should abstain from having more than one mate at the same time.

In the New Testament, God commands the Church to accept women as equal Ministers with men, see Galatians 3:28, to "preach the gospel to every creature", see Mark 16:15. And of course this applies to the Levitical Priesthood as well.

From 1 Timothy 3:2, we learn that God's Ministers should be married, and not rebel against God's Holy New Testament Law.

Instead of ordering the Catholic clergy with harsh words to abstain from polygamy, but to marry, Pope Benedict XVI, is in the hands of some clergymen with bizarre sexual preferences and inclinations, compare with http://www.uspapalvisit.org/.

I think it would be good for the Catholic Church to have a female Pope once in a while, who put things in order in the house of God.

To stop the clergy sex abuse scourge, the Catholic Church should follow the New Testament rules. Unfortunately this will not happen.

The Catholic sex abuse scandal is the main reason why next Pope will be the last Pope, and why the end of the Catholic Church as we know it will follow, because they have excluded women from the Priesthood, and because Priests are not allowed to marry, which pervert their natural instincts and preferences, as we have witnessed in the child abuse scandal.

The Greek Orthodox Church, and the Levitical Priesthood, fortunately soon will have to accept women and married people in their ranks.

I notice with satisfaction that the Pope on his U.S. trip understands that the U.S. leads the way in current global development, security, and business.

Pope Benedict XVI is certainly a remarkable man, and the Church as a whole is going towards victory and unity, compare with Revelation 19:17, and will be even stronger and better prepared in one thousand years at the final rebellion, see Revelation 20:7 - 10.

Did Jesus End The Temple And The Levitical Priesthood?

Fortes fortuna adiuvat. (Terence)

The Pharisee sect had its start probably during the Babylonian captivity of Judah, from the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C.

The Pharisee sect of Judaism formulated, taught, and practiced the custom of a Temple Passover lamb killing, compare with 2 Chronicles 30:15, and Ezra 6:19.

Jesus was grieved by their absence of heart, and said concerning their worship of Him: "Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctines the commandments of men", see Mark 7:6 - 9.

Christ therefore said concerning the doctrines of the Pharisees: "Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees", see Matthew 16:6, 12.

Now Jesus Christ is the perfect finished sacrifice, compare with John 1:29.

"Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us", see 1 Corinthians 5:7.

Jesus Christ is our Passover Lamb; once and for all, the sin and disease are removed by the precious blood of Christ, compare with Acts 20:28, 1 Peter 1:18 - 19, and 1 Peter 2:24.

So with Jesus Christ the Temple Sacrifice became perfect and finished.

But what about the Temple and the Priesthood? Was the purpose of Christ to end the Temple and the Levitical Priesthood?

Actually, Christ promised to restore not only the Temple and the Levitical Priesthood on the third day, but He also promised to restore the Kingdom of Israel.

Jesus spoke not only of His body, when He said: "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up", see John 2:19, compare with 2 Thessalonians 2:4, and Revelation 11:2.

Christ also promised that the end-time Elijah would come and restore all things, including the Levitical Priesthood, compare with Matthew 17:11, and Matthew 27:47, 49.

Furthermore, Jesus promised and prophesied, that the Kingdom of Israel will be fully restored, see Matthew 24:3, Acts 1:6 - 7, and compare with Isaiah 9:6 - 7, Luke 1:32 - 33, and Romans 11:26.

However, the renewed and future importance of Constantinople, New Rome, and of the Latin language, should not be ignored, compare with Romans 1:7, and 10:12.

Salvation Is Only Possible Through Christ

In silvam ne ligna feras. (Horace)

The Old Testament faith is evil, and without the intervention of Christ, it would have destroyed all life upon Earth.

The New Testament, on the contrary, is the record of grace applied to people lost in sin and rebellion. No one can be saved according to the works, which are mentioned in the Old Testament Law.

Therefore Christ came and nailed them to the Cross.

Jews are - similarly to Greeks - the very essence of goodness, intelligence, and civilization.

Jews are also God's chosen people. And for some reasons there are people who think it is wrong to preach the gospel to Jews and Greeks.

But nothing could be more wrong. The high intelligence and civilization of God's chosen people, often fool them into the belief that they can do without Christ.

But nothing could be further from the truth, because there is no salvation without Christ. The prime target for evangelization must therefore be to those who oppose Christ - the Jews, because there is no salvation without Jesus Christ.

The God of the Old Testament is jealous and proud of it; petty, vindictive, unjust, unforgiving, racist, and an ethnic-cleanser, urging his people on to acts of genocide.

If You are a real friend of Jews, then never hesitate to tell them the truth, that there is no salvation beside Christ, see Acts 4:12.

You probably also recall that the walls of Jericho came tumbling down, and then the Israelites destroyed with the sword every living thing in it - men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep, and donkeys", see Joshua 6:21. This certainly seems brutal and vindictive, doesn't it, compare with Colossians 2:14 - 15?

Or consider Joshua 11:20: "For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses".

Will Israel Always Be At War?

Bella detesta matribus. (Horace)

When Isaac in the Old Testament blessed Esau, the ancestor of the Romans, he said: "by thy sword shalt thou live", see Genesis 27:40.

But what about Israel? What did God say to Jacob?

As a matter of fact, in the Old Testament God says to David: "the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife", see 2 Samuel 12:10.

In the New Testament, Christ merges Esau (Jesus), see Matthew 1:21 - 1:23, with the Jewish people (the Church), see 1 Corinthians 12:13, and compare with Revelation 1:16, Revelation 12:1, and John 17:11.

In consequence Christ prophesied: "and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd", see John 10:16.

It has correctly been said that Hebrew is the language of the Father, and that Greek is the language of the Son, but that Latin is the language of the Holy Spirit.

We know that Christians are fellow soldiers and conquerors of new frontiers, see for example Matthew 28:19 - 20, Mark 16:15, Romans 16:20, Philippians 2:25, and Philemon 1:2.

This explains why Jesus said: "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword", see Matthew 10:34, and compare with Luke 12:49.

Christ makes war in righteousness, see Revelation 19:11, as He has the sharp sword, see Revelation 19:15, and is followed by the heavenly armies, see Revelation 19:14, and compare with Revelation 6:17.

In the future, all Kingdoms will therefore be the Kingdoms of Christ, see Revelation 11:15, and compare with Luke 1:33.

However, all Christians should remember that: "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him", see 1 John 3:15.

Pope Benedict XVI Visits America

Est Deus in nobis.

When Pope Benedict XVI visits the U.S. April 15 - 20, attention will be given to different questions, ranging from the ordination of women, to the Vatican ban on contraception.

The great commission, see Mark 16:15, to "preach the gospel", is to all believers, and to all the Church of Jesus Christ, because all believers are Priests, see 1 Peter 2:9, and Revelation 1:6.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus", see Galatians 3:28, and compare with 1 Corinthians 12:12 - 25, and Colossians 3:11.

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, see 2 Corinthians 5:17.

The Apostle Peter understood that some women are given the gift of being great and effective Pastors, compare with 1 Peter 4:10 - 11.

In the New Testament God both called and used women as Preachers. For example, Priscilla and Aquila - a married couple - both acted in the role of Pastor to a man from Alexandria, see Acts 18:24 - 26.

The command to "preach the gospel" in Mark 16:15, is thus to both male and female.

Other examples from the New Testament, which support the ordination of women, are when the Apostle Paul refers to Phebe as a Minister of the Church at Cenchrea, see Romans 16:1, or, when Paul commends the female Apostle Junia, as outstanding among the Apostles, see Romans 16:7.

Women are even Prophetesses in the New Testament Church, see Acts 21:9!

We Christians should understand that "God is no respecter of persons", see Acts 10:34, and Romans 2:11.

God gives the gift of the Holy Spirit equally to both women and men according to the New Testament, see 1 Corinthians 12:4 - 31, and 2 Corinthians 3:6.

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world", see 1 John 4:4.

An Asteroid Destroyed Sodom And Gomorrah

Rident stolidi verba latina. (Ovid)

A clay tablet has been identified as a witness's account of the Asteroid more than half a mile across, which destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, see http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/science/article3649054.ece.

In Genesis 19:24 - 28 we read: "Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD: And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace".

Luke 17:29 states: "But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all".

It is not without reason that Jerusalem is called Sodom in Revelation 11:8; see Revelation 9:1, and Luke 10:18, and compare with Luke 17:26 - 37.

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man", see Luke 21:36.

When Sodom and Gomorrah was devastated, about one million sq kilometers - 386,000 sq miles - was destroyed, and the impact had the equivalent of more than 1.000 tons of TNT exploding.

The Asteroid's impact explains why at Köfels, there is evidence of an ancient landslide, 5 km wide and 500 meters thick.

Of the ancient myths, which record the devastation of the type and on the scale of the Asteroid's impact, we have the ancient Greek myth of how Phaeton, son of Helios, fell into the River Eridanus after losing control of his father's sun chariot, see http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,343674,00.html?sPage=fnc/scitech/space.

This scientific discovery proves the existence of God, and that He uses nature as His servant to accomplish His purpose, and to execute His judgment, compare with Jude 1:5 - 7.

"Existimo enim quod non sunt condignae passiones huius temporis ad futuram gloriam, quae revelabitur in nobis", Romans 8:18.

The Incredible Resurrection Of The Two Witnesses

Fas est et ab hoste doceri. (Ovid)

When the Two Witnesses, after their 1260 days testimony, are killed by the Antichrist, people will send gifts to one another and "make merry", see Revelation 11:10.

The reason for this is that these two prophets tormented peoples and nations, by telling them the truth, that they are lost forever and in a sense are crucified, because no one can enter Paradise and gain Eternal Life, without first confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord God, see Romans 10:9, 13, and compare with Mark 8:36, and Luke 16:26.

The deaths of the Two Witnesses, will probably occur simultaneously with the death of the next and last Pope, Petrus Romanus. This will signal the end of the Christian Nation and the Vatican as we know it, and for the Jewish people it will also signal that the 42-month long occupation of Israel has come to an end.

Most people will at this time be completely fed up with religion, the Vatican, and also with the occupation of Israel.

But some faithful Christian believers will remain in Constantinople.

And surprise surprise!

When many Jews and Romans - who, with the help of the Antichrist, have arranged the deaths of the Two Witnesses - will hear the thundering voice of God from heaven to the Two Witnesses, calling: "Come up hither!", see Revelation 11:12, and see the Two Witnesses Resurrected, alive, and standing on their feet, and then ascending up to heaven, the remaining faithful Christians will get the necessary moral boost, which will give them the absolute and total victory, just like the Church had, through both Jews and Greeks, the first centuries after the Resurrection of Christ.

The testimony and Resurrection of the Two Witnesses will of course convert many lukewarm believers to God, and many many persons from other faiths as well, compare with Revelation 14:15.

Indeed, the Jewish Nation and the Greek Nation - both Jerusalem and Constantinople, New Rome - will then triumph, and also peace, thanks to Jesus Christ, see Matthew 24:30, and Revelation 1:7.

And everybody will know and understand that Christ is the Lord God Almighty, compare with Revelation 1:8, before our heavenly and New Jerusalem appears from heaven, see 1 Corinthians 2:9, and Revelation 21:2.

Christianity Paves The Way For Better Democracy

Intellectum valde amat. (St. Augustine)

Persuasion in the New Testament is better than persuasion in the Old Testament, because the New Testament Law, has replaced the faulty Old Testament Law, since the New Testament is given as the New Law, see Matthew 5:18, Hebrews 8:6, and 1 Peter 1:23 - 25.

In for example Deuteronomy 20:16 we read: "However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes".

When Jesus came and abolished the law of Moses, see 2 Corinthians 3:13, He blotted out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross, see Colossians 2:14, and compare with John 5:45.

"For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth", see Romans 10:4.

So now "there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus", see Galatians 3:28, and we are "looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ", see Titus 2:13.

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved", see Acts 4:12.

As especially Christians of the Greek Orthodox faith understand, the New Testament Law is the Supreme Law, which has replaced the Old Testament Law, compare with Luke 16:16, 2 Corinthians 3:11, and Hebrews 8:7.

Hereby we also know that Christianity paves the way for better Democracy, see John 8:36, Galatians 5:1, 13, Revelation 12:5 and 19:15.

"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.

"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 compare with Revelation 20:5.

But the Latin language remains The Sacred Language, compare with John 11:48, Romans 1:7, Revelation 9:11, Genesis 27:22, and Obadiah 1:6.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place", see 2 Corinthians 2:14.

Carl Bildt And Benjamin Netanyahu

Mater dolorosa.

In an interview on Swedish radio, the Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt was asked how Israel can make peace with the Palestinians, while Hamas controls the Gaza Strip.

Bildt then made a comparison and said: "It is possible to make peace without Hamas the same way it is possible to make peace without Netanyahu on the Israeli side".

What Bildt said has outraged Israeli diplomats and also Israeli public opinion, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1207649975283&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

Personally, I like both Carl Bildt and Benjamin Netanyahu. And Netanyahu also used to send me Christmas and New Years greeting cards.

But we must remember that Bildt lives in Sweden - historically the "lost" Israeli tribe of Nephtali - compare with Matthew 4:15 - 16, as opposed to the Israeli tribe of Judah.

The last war Sweden had was 200 years ago. I suggest that the Israeli government invites Carl Bildt, and listens to how a country can live in peace for 200 years.

200 years of peace made Europe's perhaps poorest country the richest, because wars are very costly.

We should, however, not have any illusions, because he who is without Jesus is powerless, compare with John 15:5.

God's Prophet Elijah is furthermore not yet allowed into Israel, see http://www.two-olive-trees.org/.

The Bildt episode happens, because the Jewish People have forgotten to honor God, and build Him the Third Temple, see Revelation 11:2.

This will suffer them 42 months of occupation, so that Elijah can take his place on the Temple Mount, and explain why the Jews were outcast from their land for 2000 years, and prepare the way for the Second Coming of the Lord, see Acts 1:6 - 7, and Revelation 11:3 - 14.

Pope Benedict XVI: Jesus Christ Is Our Hope

Bis vincit qui se vincit in victoria. (Publilius Syrus)

When Pope Benedict XVI visits the U.S. in mid-April he wants to bring a message of Christian hope to all Americans and to the United Nations, see http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0801881.htm.

Pope Benedict XVI says: "I shall come to the United States as pope for the first time to proclaim this great truth: Jesus Christ is hope for men and women of every language, race, culture and social condition".

The Pope continues: "I know how deeply rooted this Gospel message is in your country"; "It is God who saves us; he saves the world and all of history. He is the shepherd of his people. I am coming, sent by Jesus Christ, to bring you his word of life".

The Pope should be commended and applauded. We have seen the return of the Latin Mass, which is a blessing, and now the Pope shares the truth that Jesus Christ is the hope for all, compare with Romans 10:13, Galatians 3:28, and Revelation 5:9 - 10.

The Lord God will say: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant", see Matthew 25:21.

The Biofuel Swindle And Global Food Crisis

Numero pondere et mensura Deus omnia condidit. (Isaac Newton)

Today many governments stimulate farmers to switch from food crops to biofuel crops.

But the green religion is a false God. The biofuel scam will create an unprecedented global food crisis.

Instead we should increase the number of nuclear power plants to avoid having large world populations going hungry in dark rooms.

The use of agricultural products for biofuels will lead to food shortages, compare with Matthew 24:7.

Turning land from food production to biofuel crop production reduces the food production, and the food price may go up 50 per cent.

Diverting corn from food to fuel use has already raised food prices quite sharply in many places.

"The World Bank Group estimates that 33 countries around the world face potential social unrest because of the acute hike in food and energy prices. For these countries, where food comprises from half to three quarters of consumption, there is no margin for survival", see http://www.crosswalk.com/news/11572379/.

Talks By Israeli And Palestinian Leaders Resume

Ut sementem feceris, ita metes. (Cicero)

Israeli and Palestinian leaders renewed efforts Monday to end their conflict by year's end, but their first meeting in two months deteriorated into accusations that each side was not living up to a U.S.-backed peace plan, see http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D8VT8LO00&show_article=1&catnum=0.

To start with, Israel should have the right to collect damage claims done by all the Arab attacks on Israelis and the Israeli State.

As someone said: "Why isn't the UN sending anyone to investigate damages to Israel for all the Kassams launched at her from Gaza?".

Is Israel Finished?

Amor est vitae essentia. (Robert B. Mackay)

As Israel prepares to celebrate its 60th birthday, the respected Atlantic Monthly magazine is keeping the champagne firmly corked, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1207238165670&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

Jeffrey Goldberg, an award-winning journalist and American Jew who made aliya and served in the IDF, asks a series of follow-up questions like, "How can Israel survive the next 60 years in a part of the world that gives rise to groups like Hamas?".

The New Testament answers these questions: Jesus will reign from Israel and there will be no end to the Kingdom of Israel, see Luke 1:32 - 33.

However, we should be worried for the near future of Israel.

The New Testament predicts a 42-month occupation of Israel, see Luke 21:24, Romans 11:25, and Revelation 11:2.

But then "all Israel shall be saved", see Romans 11:26, 16:20, and Revelation 14:20.

God has promised to never more uproot the Jewish people from Israel.

The Levites will nevertheless have a leading role in the future - through the 24 elders - when Israel becomes the new Superpower, compare with Luke 1:5, Hebrews 7:5, and Revelation 4:10 - 11. See also 1 Peter 2:9 and Revelation 5:10.

Israel is forever!

Tony Blair Wants To Save Religion From Extremism

Lectio brevior lectio potior.

Tony Blair - who converted to Catholicism last year - said in his first major speech on religion at the Westminster Cathedral, that religion must be rescued from extremism and irrelevance.

The director of public theology think tank Theos, Paul Woolley, welcomed Blair’s speech.

Paul Woolley said that Blair was right to urge politicians not to dismiss religion as out-of-date or extreme, see http://www.christiantoday.com/article/religion.must.be.saved.from.extremism.says.blair/17691.htm.

"The reality is that religious faith will play an increasingly significant role in society", he said.

We should, however, not forget that political extremism exists in the world, and often causes more suffering than religion.

It is never ok to do bad things.

Belief In God Make Us Happier

Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas. (Vergil)

A new study proves that religious people are happier than atheists or agnostics.

Unfortunately, there are still many people who would rather indulge in irreligiosity, than lead a religious and therefore happier life.

Prof. Andrew Clark of the Paris School of Economics, and Dr. Orsolya Lelkes of the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research, recently presented their research at the conference of the Royal Economic Society in Coventry, UK, see http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3525703,00.html.

Those who claim that organized religion is the cause of all wars and suffering for mankind are obviously wrong according to this research.

In Hebrews 10:25 we consequently are urged: "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching".

"Religion tempers the impact of adverse life events", say the authors of the study.

Ted Turner Predicts Mass Cannibalism

Rem tene, verba sequentur. (Cato Senior)

The great day of His wrath becomes more understandable, now that Ted Turner predicts we will eat each other before 2040.

According to Ted Turner crops will have been destroyed by global warming, and civilization will have broken down by 2040.

The New Testament calls this "the great tribulation", see Matthew 24:21.

Ted Turner, founder of Turner Broadcasting and CNN, says that future living conditions will be intolerable, and that "the few people left will be living in a failed state like Somalia or the Sudan", see http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=60581.

I remember I saw some mathematical models many years ago, showing that when the world population hits the 7 billion mark, it will shrink with 80%.

Turner says: "We're too many people. That's why we have global warming. We have global warming, because too many people are using too much stuff. If there were less people, they'd be using less stuff".

Pope Benedict XVI Has Formed A Congregation For Internet Evangelization

A capite ad calcem.

According to the Catholic News Service, the Apostolic Constitution Technologium Saeculum - The Age of Technology - addresses the growing need for "liturgical and biblical catechesis at the click of a button".

Among the duties of the "Congregatio pro Evangelizatio Interretialis", is the painstaking process of registering the Catholics who present catechetical material on their blogs.

This registration will allow the Catholic bloggers to present an authentic seal of approval from the dicastery, similar to the nihil obstat and imprimatur of printed works.

The Vatican has also made clear its go-ahead spirit and purposes to Evangelize Kosovo.

Pope Benedict XVI appointed Dode Gjergji, Bishop of the Albanian Sape Diocese, before transferring him to Kosovo.

We are receiving a positive report that Gjergji is doing all he can to convert Kosovo’s Muslims to Christianity.

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Kosovo believes that Kosovo’s Muslims need a "cultural baptism" into Catholicism.

It will be very interesting to follow how the Vatican will continue to influence events concerning both the Internet and in the Balkans.

The Glorious Message Of The New Testament

Qui pro innocente dicit, satis est eloquens. (Publilius Syrus)

Jesus often talked about the kingdom, which will be set up here on Earth at His Second Coming, see for example Luke 1:32 - 33, Acts 1:6 - 7, and Revelation 20:9.

Jesus told His disciples: "And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel", see Luke 22:29 – 30.

The returning Jesus Christ will rule over all the nations of this world, see Revelation 11:15, and compare with Ephesians 3:21.

Now out of the mouth of Jesus goes a sharp sword, see Revelation 1:16, that with it He should smite the nations, see Revelation 19:15, and He will Himself rule the nations with a rod of iron, see Revelation 12:5.

Christ will also tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath as the Lord God Almighty, compare with Revelation 14:20, Hebrews 13:12, and Luke 19:27.

Jesus has furthermore on His robe and on His thigh a name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords, see Revelation 19:16.

"If ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin", see James 2:9, and compare with Romans 10:12.

And "whatsoever is not of faith is sin", see Romans 14:23.

Sin is to believe that something else than Jesus Christ ultimately can save us, compare with John 14:6.

Acts 2:38 states accordingly: "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost".

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God", see Romans 3:23.

The New Testament also says that when you sin, you automatically earn the penalty of death, see Romans 6:23.

Earlier today I came back to Mons, after having spent one week in the city of wisdom, which is Athens, in Greece.

I perceive that many persons are like trees walking about without understanding, compare with Mark 8:24.

But "the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death", see Romans 8:2.
