The entire world is getting worse and worse and the saying goes, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em,” and that is what the Bush’s, Clinton and Obama has done.
When life gets tougher instead of people looking to God they look to themselves or some smooth talker, e.g., Obama, Oprah, Warren, etc. And God tells us that is not a good idea:
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction (Prov 1:7).
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil (Prov 3:5-7).
The amount of people that worship Jesus is declining. So tomorrow we will look at…
The Seventh Seal
1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
“Opened the seventh seal” – there is no separate judgment associated with this seal. Instead, seven angels appear with seven trumpets to signal a seven-fold judgment as the expression of this seventh and final seal.
“Silence in heaven” – a dramatic pause before the next series of plagues – the final act of the drama is left undisclosed here, reserved to be presented later.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
“Seven trumpets” – in Old Testament times the trumpet served to announce important events and give signals in time of war. The seven trumpets of Rev 8-9, 11:15-19 announce a series of plagues more severe than the sales but not as completely devastating as the vials (chapter 16).
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
“Censer” – a fire pan used to hold live charcoal for the burning of incense.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
Although the angel is involved in presenting the prayers for the saints to God, he does not make them acceptable. The Jewish apocalyptic concept of angels as mediators finds no place in the New Testament.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
“Wormwood” – a plant with a strong, bitter taste. It is used here as a metaphor for calamity and sorrow (see Prov 5:3-4; Jer 9:15; Lam 3:19). It is not poisonous, but its bitterness suggests death.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
“The third part of the sun…smitten” – in the ninth plague on Egypt, thick darkness covered the land for three days (Ex 10:21-23). References to the Egyptian plagues suggest that in Revelation we have the final exodus of God’s people from the bondage of a world controlled by hostile powers. This plague is far worse and seems to have no end.
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
“Woe, woe, woe…yet to sound” – these three woes correspond to the three final trumpet plagues (see 9:12, 11:14, [10:1-11:13]; the seven vial judgments of chapters 15-16 apparently constitute the third woe).
The woes fall on the unbelieving world (the phrase “the inhabiters of the earth” refers to the wicked, not the righteous/believers.
I’m posting this information here just because it’s suggested in the news and online. Years ago I would have laughed at this.
God is shown me that He is without a doubt a mystery. There is nothing that He cannot do and it doesn’t always make since why He does certain things so I’m not saying I believe or disbelieve in Shape Shifters. Everything is possible with God.
If Obama or his Secret Service men are Shape Shifters (explained below) so be it because nothing matters because God is in charge. I know that when this is all over I’m going to spend eternity with Jesus Christ, and that is what matters.
In mythology, folklore, and modern fantasy fiction, shape shifting is the ability of a being to physically transform into another form or entity. This can be done as an inherent faculty of a mythological creature, or by means of magic.
The concept is present in antiquity, and may indeed be a human cultural universal. It is present in the oldest forms of totemism or shamanism, as well as the oldest extant literature and epic poems (such as the Gilgamesh Epic or the Iliad).
The Shape Shifting is usually induced by the act of a deity; it persisted into the literature of the Middle Ages and the modern period (where the agency causing shape-shifting is mostly a sorcerer or witch). It remains a common trope in modern fantasy, children’s literature, and works of pop culture.
It controversially described Jesus as having the ability to change shape.
Written in the Coptic language, the ancient text written in the name of St. Cyril of Jerusalem, a distinguished theologian who lived during the fourth century, tells part of the crucifixion story of Jesus with apocryphal plot twists, some of which have never been seen before.
The ancient text explains why Judas used a kiss, specifically, to betray Jesus.
According to the canonical bible, the apostle Judas betrays Jesus in exchange for money by using a kiss to identify him leading to Jesus’ arrest.
This apocryphal tale explains that the reason Judas used a kiss, specifically, is because Jesus had the ability to change shape.
“Then the Jews said to Judas: How shall we arrest him [Jesus], for he does not have a single shape but his appearance changes. Sometimes he is ruddy, sometimes he is white, sometimes he is red, sometimes he is wheat coloured, sometimes he is pallid like ascetics, sometimes he is a youth, sometimes an old man.”
Yet, Jesus wasn’t hiding when they arrested Him:
“And Jesus said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves to take me?
I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled” (Mk 14:48-49).
I’m certainly not saying Jesus couldn’t change His shape, there is nothing He cannot do, for example:
“Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you” (Jn 20:19).
“And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
and it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up not haven” (Lk 24:50-51).By far the most common form of shape shifting is therianthropy which is the transformation of a human being into an animal (or conversely of an animal into human form).
Additionally, there can be a transformation into a plant or object, another human form (e.g. fair to ugly, or vice versa), but these transformations are more rare.
Everyone knows that if you have a super-secret shape shifter doing your bidding, you do not allow said being to be seen on television, but the Obama administration did just that, assigning this celestial being to the Secret Service.
Well, that’s what conspiracy theorists are claiming. The Obama administration has responded to these allegations saying that they can’t afford a shape shifter due to sequestration cuts.
Here the YouTube video that shows the possibility of the Secret Service man being a shape shifter.
People ask a lot of questions about Obama, such as:
* Is Obama actually an American?
* Is he a Muslim?
* Is he actually an alien from another planet?
* Has Obama had brain surgery?
Internet blog sites, conspiracy theorists and forums are awash with rumors as to what those mystery scars on the president’s head are from.
In pictures, Obama appears to have a long scar which goes up the side of his head and over his crown.
Some conspiracy theorists claim they are scars that you would see on someone who has had brain surgery. But without medical records no one seems to be able to provide an answer as to the cause of the mystery scars.
Whatever happened to create that scar, it was clearly something serious. Was it a brain operation? Has it affected his thinking?
Very little is known about Obama, and the simple fact that he isn’t willing to disclose himself makes him dishonest and deceitful. Below is a list of rumors that I have heard of:
1. Born in Kenya, but wants people to believe he was born in Hawaii.
2. In an arranged marriage that reminds him of the wild life of Africa and also hides his homosexuality.
3. Member of the “Down Low Club,”
4. It is possible, but not that probable, that Sasha and Malia came from his loins
5. Not a racist when it comes to the gay community.
6. Said to be the first black president of America, but he’s not fully black or fully president.
7. A Muslim (you can’t be both Muslim and Christian).
8. Thinks he is God (Satan had thought that too).
9. Promotes abortion.
10. Weakens military.
11. Has private army, Hitler’s Gestapo in America.
12. Has Concentration Camps built in America.
13. Plans with socialists for One World Order.
14. Shape Shifter.
15. Born of the devil.
16. Has reserved home in hell.
17. Did Obama have Brain Surgery? If so, what happened?
…Fewer People Believe in God.
