By the time Jonathan was fourteen he had grown physically as well as spiritually and was on his way towards fulfilling the destiny before him. He was taking graduate courses in music, linguistics, mathematics, physics, and theology at the prestigious University of Oxford in Great Britain. Jonathan was even highly recruited by Professor Stephen Hawking, the theoretical physicist and former holder of the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics at Cambridge University, to attend the school and study astrophysics and cosmology. This delighted his father, Jibrail, a world renowned astrophysicist who had worked with Dr. Hawking in the past. Jonathan knew the scriptures and deep matters concerning the nature of God as well as any theologian, thanks to the insight he received from his mentor, Goel.
However, as intelligent as he was, Jonathan was still an adolescent and developmentally prone to recklessness and naivety. This was evident in his relationships with the older students he encountered at Cambridge. He was constantly teased and bullied by some of the older Oxfordians, who were jealous of his great intelligence and the fact he came from a wealthy family, and his heritage. The breaking point was when he was confronted by members of the rugby team, who had been merciless in their torment of him. They had been quelled several times by the presence of his protector, Goel. But rare moments when Goel was not with Jonathan gave the bullies opportunities to strike. It appeared the young scholar was going to be beaten and humiliated like never before, but Jonathan was able, due to his training, to conquer several of the much larger bullies.
Yet, sheer numbers threatened to overwhelm Jonathan, when out of nowhere, unbeknownst to Jonathan, he had an ally who came to his rescue. Together they successfully repelled his attackers. Introducing himself as Alexandru Musatin, he and Jonathan forged a friendship that would last well into adulthood. When Goel learned of this, he flatly refused to acknowledge the friendship between Jonathan and Alexandru for reasons he never fully revealed. The young Musatin, who was seventeen years old, had “a certain darkness about him,” however, the two continued their relationship under the scrutinizing watch of Goel.
Jonathan’s parents had an estate in the beautiful highlands of Scotland near Loch Ness, and during the summer they often stayed there and entertained their closest friends and associates. Throughout his fourteenth year, Jonathan proved time and again how utterly talented and accomplished he was. He had achieved a perfect 4.0 grade point average at Oxford and even attended a course in astrophysics at Cambridge where he simply astounded Professor Hawking with his insights into quantum mechanics and cosmology. His music professors said that his violin and piano playing was, to quote one of them, “…as if he had channeled the abilities of Chopin and Rachmaninoff along with Yitzhak Perlman along with his own unique style to create someone unparalleled in musical abilities.”
Ironically, it was his musical talents that on a particular night would prove to present him with the greatest challenge of his young life. His parents had an outside reception at the ancient Urquhart Castle overlooking the sea. They invited fifty of some of the wealthiest and most influential people in the world to seek their support for the Rabin-Aziz Foundation. People who were shipping magnates, oil tycoons, entertainment personalities, political personages, and those with backgrounds in religion, science and the humanities were the guests. Most importantly, Jonathan was highlighted as the special musical performer. First, Jonathan played Chopin’s Minute Waltz followed by his Etude in C# minor Op.10 No. 4 on the piano. He then amazed them with his interpretation of Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in C# minor Op. 3 No. 2.
Later in the evening he played the Partita in D minor for solo violin by Johann Sebastian Bach, after which he performed Flight of the Bumblebee by Nicolai Rimski-Korsakov. He simply astonished the crowd and his parents with a piece of his own composition he called, The Meeting of Yeshua and Lucifer, inspired by a dream he had of a confrontational conversation between Christ and the Devil. Jonathan received a standing ovation that lasted for several minutes. He took center stage again and played the beautifully composed violin solo for Schindler’s List, which moved the audience to tears. Jonathan received many accolades and high praise for his musicality and academic success from the many guests at his parents’ soiree.
The compliments filled the featured artist’s head with pride. Goel, who had been silent during Jonathan’s performance, noticed the arrogance creeping into the heart of the young man and he pulled him aside to warn him of the consequences of falling prey to haughtiness. Jonathan incredulously retorted back at his mentor that he did not see anything wrong with taking pride in any of his accomplishments. The guardian angel firmly stated that Jonathan should remember the case of Lucifer, who despite his own perfection of design, was the quarry of hubris and fell from grace.
Goel, in fact, was so straightforward with his charge that the reprimand severely wounded Jonathan to the point he fled the angel’s presence. Running down to the shores of Loch Ness, Jonathan’s young heart was filled with anger at his mentor for his harsh chastisement. Jonathan thought that it was nothing wrong with him having a little pride in his abilities. Having all those affluent people praise him delighted and validated him. Even so, Goel’s words rang in his mind.
“Beware of pride in your abilities, Jonathan, for they can be the root of greater transgressions against the Lord. Remember the fall of Lucifer and how his self-importance absorbed and overcame him. Rather than humble himself in front of God by admitting that he was wrong to speak out against Him, he chose to hate God. He threatened to punish God by punishing his Creator and, subsequently, name himself ‘God.’ Had Satan repented and turned from his evil, anti-God practices, God would have forgiven him and restored Lucifer’s former glory and standing. However, Satan’s immense pride would not allow him to ask God for forgiveness. Like him, Jonathan, the Lord has blessed you with many talents and gifts for which others will admire and applaud you. But you must always keep in mind that it is God who deserves all the credit and glory. It is not by your strength but by the grace of the Lord that you can do anything at all and you must acknowledge Him for that.”
As the words of Goel permeated his being, Jonathan was unaware that another presence had crept into his mind. Lucifer himself had decided to take this opportunity to tempt and mesmerize the young prodigy into taking the journey down the road that would lead him to becoming a servant of evil. Speaking to the part of Jonathan’s psyche that desires to be complimented and praised, Lucifer seduces the boy.
“Why shouldn’t you be complimented, Jonathan? You are among the most gifted and talented, and you should be applauded and praised.”
Jonathan struggled within himself to ward off the melodious words that sang so beautifully in his mind as the dark master of evil continued to tickle his mind with honeyed words of affirmation.
“Jonathan, the Lord wants you to be proud of your gifts. You have worked very hard to take what He has given you and make it yours. Be proud and acknowledge your long hours of practice and all the hard work you have done.”
The words of adoration and praise were intoxicating like a strong wine as Lucifer continued his assault on the boy’s fragile ego.
Jonathan sensed that this was not just thoughts being formulated in his mind. He felt the palpable presence of someone near him but unseen.
Jonathan was so sure of this that he said aloud, “I know someone else is here. If there is, make your presence known.”
Surprisingly, Jonathan felt a strong hand on his shoulder, and, in shock, he whirled around to find that right out of the nothingness which surrounded him a figure appeared.
“You do not need to fear me, Jonathan, for I appear to those who seek my counsel.” the figure said coolly.
The form that stood before Jonathan was indeed a solid person and not some wispy apparition. He was male in appearance, tall and beautiful to look upon. He glowed with a light that seemed to come from within his being, but it was his eyes that were the most compelling thing about him. They were a brilliant blue that seemed to penetrate the soul and uncover the innermost secrets that dwelled deep within the human spirit.
Fearfully, yet with a courageousness that surprised even himself, Jonathan slightly stammered, “Hoo— who are you?”
Smiling graciously, the being intoned musically, “I am known by many names. Many I’m sure you have heard of— some maybe unknown to you— for they have been lost in time.”
Looking deeply at the handsome young man, the mysterious being said, “Let us just say I am a friend and for a long time I have waited and watched for you.”
Seeing the confused look on his face the mysterious stranger said, “I know, I know, my young friend. You have a million questions, and trust me, you will have the answers to them all. In brief, let me say in all the myths and legends your species have concocted, they are based on some truth. Since time immemorial I and the members of my race have dwelt among you, some of us in secret, some openly but all with the same curiosity about you humans. My people are from a world that is hundreds of thousands of years more advanced than yours, where the technology is based on ethereal or spiritual energy. We are a race of watchers, where in the multitudes of worlds, we observed and sought for signs of intelligences other than our own. In the infinite vastness of the cosmos we found none. We were about to give up when we found your world, a planetary system rich and teeming with life. But more importantly, we found a young species with unlimited genetic potential and a latent intelligence that would one day rival our own. So, we chose to experiment on your species and created Homo sapiens.”
Incredulously, Jonathan said, “That’s not true! According to the Word of God, Jehovah created man and all there is in the world! Who are you to dispute His Word?!”
Shaking his head at the naiveté of the boy, the being said, “That is what you have been taught to believe in order to keep you blind to the truth and a slave to the will of a less than benevolent god.”
“My names are as many and varied as my history! I am the great Prince Ea of the Mesopotamians, the one who created you and, therefore, your civilization! I am the sun god Ra of the Egyptians, the sustainer of life! I am Sol Invictus, the Unconquered Sun of the Roman Empire! I am Quetzalcoatl, the lord of the morning star of the Aztecs! But you may call me Lucifer, the Enlightened One!”

The drive down I-95 from Andrews Air Force Base into Washington, D.C. to the Renwick Gallery was uneventful. Jonathan and Goel’s conversation was basically about the possibilities of what the President wanted to discuss with them. When the duo had arrived, they found they had an hour to spare. So, they decided to look at the different forms of art featured at the gallery. Jonathan graciously dismissed himself to the men’s room and left Goel near the painting of the angel Israf’El.
Goel stared at the picture incredulously, shook his head, and muttered disdainfully, “Hmmph! Yeah, right!”
When many thought of angels and envisioned them, they thought of fat little babies who spent all their time floating in the ethereal, looking around thoughtfully. Although they did spend a large portion of their time in thoughtful praise to God, angels were in fact fearsome warriors who were far from the chubby toddlers depicted. As a matter of fact, Israfel was one of the commanders of the Mal’akhim Habbalah who operated within the ranks of the Powers under the orders of Goel. And he knew that Israfel did not look that way. The commander was an angel of wrath and destruction and not some effeminate weakling who spent all day strumming a harp. He battled the forces of darkness with a keen eye, and a single-minded rapaciousness second to none.
Shaking his head, Goel walked away from the painting and noticed a small child standing in a corner crying softly. The beautiful little boy had golden blond hair and big blue eyes that were wet with tears.
Drawn to the fear that emanated from the child, Goel carefully approached the small boy and said gently, “What is wrong, little one?”
Looking up through his tears, the child said, “I lost my daddy, and I don’t know where he is.”
Compassionately, Goel kneeled in front of the distraught child and said, “Do not worry; your father will be here shortly. I will stay with you until he arrives.”
Immediately trusting the giant stranger, the boy placed his tiny hand in Goel’s larger ones and said with the innocence and insight commonplace to children, “Are you an angel?”
Knowing that children have a special affinity for seeing the ethereal, Goel answered truthfully and said, “Yes, little one, I am.”
The sweet, chubby face stared at him.
Smiling, Goel added, “We cannot tell everyone who I am just yet. We must keep it a secret for now, can you do that?”
The child vigorously nodded his head as the disguised angel knelt in front of him.
“Your name is Michael Daniel Worthington. You are named after your father and your mother’s father.”
Smiling joyously, Michael said, “You are an angel! You know my name!”
“That is correct, and I also know your mother has recently died.”
Sadly, the boy replied, “She was sick, and Jesus came to take her to Heaven.”
Goel eyes locked on Michael’s, and he replied, “You are an intelligent boy. Again, you are right. Jesus sent an angel, who is a friend of mine to bring her to him. She is very happy, and she loves you very much. She is not in any more pain, and she cannot wait to see you again.”
With wisdom beyond his meager years, Michael said, “I know Mommy is happy, but my Daddy isn’t. He misses her very much, and he is sad all the time, even though he thinks I don’t know it.”
The boy continued. “Daddy is mad at God for taking Mommy, and he doesn’t like church. I told him if he wants to see Mommy again he shouldn’t be mad at God, believe in Jesus, and go to church.”
Goel was amazed at Michael’s insight as he said, “Do you believe in Jesus, Michael?”
Michael vigorously nodded his head and said, “Yes! He died so that I can live!”
Goel tenderly placed his hand on the boy’s head and said, “Blessed are you, little one. Your faith as made you free, and your faith will save your father. Just keep praying for him, and he will see. And, guess what?”
“What?”
“I have a friend whose name is Micha’El, like yours. He trusts in God just like you. All will be just fine, you will see.”
Suddenly, a man bounded around the corner and said with a loud voice, “Michael! There you are!”
The boy’s father, Julian Michael Worthington, was a pretentious, arrogant man who rarely smiled. As a wealthy stock broker, money and the acquisition of more wealth was the only thing in life that gave him joy, other than his only son. His wife, Maria, was the one thing that gave him a reason to smile. When she died a slow death through ovarian cancer, the little faith he had died with her. Maria, on the other hand, was a devout Christian, and she passed her beliefs on to their adorable son. Julian, however, was the type of man who could only believe in that which was tangible. So, he had little time for something like faith in God.
Rushing up to his son, Julian said to Goel, “My clients rarely give me a moment’s peace. Being the top broker in my firm makes me a popular man, and they call me at the most inopportune times. I only turned my back for a second, and he was gone. Kids, you know how they are.”
Goel’s face was as impassive as stone.
“Yes. Being a busy man, it is hard to pay attention to that which is little.”
Julian cocked his head at what Goel had said to him, but after looking at Goel’s considerable size advantage, thought against saying the retort which had formed in his mind.
Instead, Julian stammered, “Uhh… well, my clients have entrusted me with a substantial amount of capital to invest.”
Reaching out suddenly, Goel grasped Julian’s arm in a vise-like grip of steel and said with a quiet power, “God has entrusted you with something far more precious than wealth or the gain of it, the life of your son! Do not be a fool. God is not mocked! Your wife’s fondest wish is to see you and her son in the next life, but at the rate you are going, you are headed for destruction! But you have time to change! Your son and wife love you very much and, most importantly, God does too! For the sake of your soul, listen to your son!”
Julian had never before felt the raw power of the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. It surged through his very being like an electrical charge. This stranger had conveyed to him what his wife had said to him so many times, but never like this. The widower remembered something his wife had told about being careful to be kind to strangers because many have entertained angels unaware. He wasn’t sure if this was an angel, but he was definitely someone special.
Taking his son by the hand, Julian said, “Thank you for caring for my son, and I hear your words. I will listen to him.”
Folding his arms across his massive chest, Goel rumbled, “See that you do.”
Looking upward, Goel continued, “He will be watching and listening.”
Little Michael looked back at Goel and said, “Thank you, mister! God bless you!”
Goel nodded nobly at the child and said, “He has and He will. And by the way, my name is Goel.”
Smiling at him, Michael said, “Thank you, Mr. Goel!”
Goel smiled at the boy and abruptly stopped when Julian looked at him.
Glaring sternly, Goel said, “Remember my words, Julian Worthington. Seek the Lord while He still can be found.”
Fearfully nodding his head, Julian turned to his son and said while walking away, “Did I tell him my name…?”
At that instant Jonathan returned from the bathroom.
“Did I miss anything?”
“Nothing of great import, only a brief conversation with a father and son.”
Knowing Goel did not mince words lightly, Jonathan smirked and said, “I’m sure, Goel.”

Professor Beth Landau-Halpern #conspiracy theglobeandmail.com

The University of Toronto says it stands by a health-studies course in which students were required to read and watch material stating vaccines are toxic and linked to serious health problems.

The course, taught at U of T’s Scarborough campus earlier this year by Beth Landau-Halpern, a homeopath who has written that measles and chicken pox help children grow, was under review following a report in The Globe and Mail in February about her anti-vaccine stance.

The university’s review concluded the course content on immunization “had not been unbalanced” and that “in context, [it] would enable critical analysis and inquiry,” according to an e-mail statement from Althea Blackburn-Evans, U of T’s director of media relations.

The report was completed in March but was not released publicly until Monday.

The review focused primarily on a course material involving vaccination. The required reading and viewing material for that lecture included a two-hour long interview with Andrew Wakefield, the disgraced former British surgeon who popularized the false idea vaccines are linked to autism and other chronic illness. Other course material included a video promoting the idea vaccines are unsafe; a video titled Vaccine’s Safety: A Crime Against Humanity; and a book that claims vaccines have not reduced rates of disease or increased lifespan.

The recommended reading included several articles falsely linking vaccines to autism as well as chapters of a book linking vaccines to violent behaviour and disease. There are no materials from government agencies or respected medical journals documenting the many successes of vaccination programs.

The university’s review, conducted by Vivek Goel, U of T’s vice-president of research and innovation, stated the material was not unbalanced because students “have already seen the other side” of the vaccine debate in other courses. According to the review, Ms. Landau-Halpern told Dr. Goel that students are “able to have a discussion from all perspectives.”

Jen Gunter, a San Francisco-based obstetrician-gynecologist who blogs about evidenced-based medicine, called the conclusion “obscene.”

“I think it’s a perversion of science,” she said in an interview. “Two plus two is always four. You don’t get to have a class where two plus two is five and the students help to balance it out.”

In addition to concerns over anti-vaccine material, a group of scientists and U of T faculty members also complained in a letter to university president Meric Gertler about course material used by Ms. Landau-Halpern that stated quantum physics can be used to explain why meditation can reduce the size of cancerous tumours and why homeopathic remedies can heal even though they don’t contain active ingredients. The review did not address any of those concerns.

Many of you cannot move on with the person you are with, and have a fulfilling relationship because you are still haunted by the sex of one of your exes.

Maybe more than one. You are literally haunted by sex! This unnatural soul tie is preventing you from properly loving the man or woman you are with. And it's a threat to the current well-being of your relationship.

Whenever you exit a former relationship that was sexually physical, you must go through a sex purge prior to entering into a new relationship. You have to purge your mind and soul, as well as your physical body. Or else you'll remain stuck to the past and tethered to past relationships.

Some of you were with people that performed sexually like porn stars. You were so heavily driven by lust that sex with that person became like a physical addiction for you. You basically had a porn-like sexual relationship. Each sexual encounter was like making your own movies. The problem with this is that those people on screen are actors. Realistically speaking no man or woman does things the people in porn flicks do on a consistent basis. It's not even physically healthy to do those things.

That stuff is for the sexual entertainment of those without knowledge of God, and those who are estranged from Jesus Christ. And if you really knew what those sexual acts were and where many of those positions come from, or what they really did, you wouldn't want to do them.

Sex is spiritual. And many of those pretzel twisting sexual positions are really physical body mantras that summon spirits from the netherworld to enter into the bodies of those practicing those positions.

It's just like yoga positions: those aren't just exercise moves or complex stretches. Each yoga position is an actual prayer to a Hindu god or deity. And when that spirit sees someone 'getting into position' it comes as requested.

The same applies to what I call 'porn-sex.' 90% of that stuff you've seen on porn is NOT normal! But I'm getting off track here a bit.

Getting back to the topic of sex: you have to purge yourself from former sexual relationships. Sex is so much more than what we've been told and taught. Sex education only focuses on the physical aspect of mating. But it leaves us woefully lacking in understanding the spiritual and emotional ramifications of sex.

God didn't design the human body or spirit for multiple sexual encounters. But in our rebellious state as rebellious children we've abused our bodies with multiple sexual partners, which has a negative residual effect on our minds, hearts, bodies and spirits.

Then we cry out to God in our misery when our lives fall apart: particularly our relationships. God instituted marriage for a reason. But when we violate God's principles of sex by having relations with anyone or lust draws us to, we will reap disaster in our lives because of it.

God wants us to be whole and healthy. After all: He's our designer and knows how we function best. We need to break those former physical ties from our past in order to be free from the resulting soul ties.

If you find yourself fantasizing about having sex with an ex, you need to recover the parts of your fragmented soul left behind with the person(s) you were once with. Especially if you find yourself thinking about an ex while conjugating with your current spouse. And you need to do so ASAP.

The problem is that you cannot do this on your own. There's no self-healing you can do to recover your soul. Bits of pieces of your soul will remain with those others; and you'll suffer from soul-fragmentation because of it. Soul healing is only something that God can perform. Because it'll take a creative miracle to get the missing pieces of your soul back again. Therefore you need to know the concrete steps to take in order to be totally and completely free.

God will free you and restore what is missing. But it won't necessarily happen with one simple prayer or the way you think it will.

There are many articles online that deal with this topic: but 99.9% of them I've read are very misleading. Instead of setting you free and making you whole, they'll only lead to further frustration and more bondage. Because they're missing vitally important components to restoration.

**And it's way too much info to share in articles like this one. Which is why I completed an ebook that you can download and start reading right away. This ebook is titled DIVA GODDESS QUEEN: Breaking the power of soul ties, lust and sexual demons and it'll help you to recover from past relationships so you can be totally present in every way for the one you are with.

Even if you're not with someone right now, you still need to be free and made whole again. And this is something this ebook will help you accomplish - male or female. May you take the first step towards wholeness and completion by clicking on the link below and downloading this fantastic ebook. God bless.

Why is it the controlled mass media never tells America these savage serial murderers are always homosexuals? Why do CBS, ABC, NBC, and all the others cover-up and consistently paint gays as gentle, loving, caring, and compassionate humanitarians? Is it not because most of the TV and news executives and broadcasters are themselves homosexual, bisexual perverts and weirdoes?

The case of homo serial killer Andrew Cunanan is interesting in that most of Cunanan's victims were themselves gay men. Among the five men he killed in a cross-country spree was wealthy fashion designer Gianni Versace. Time magazine (April 5, 1999) commented that Cunanan was "a gregarious, wildly clever mythomaniac and petty thief in the kinky gay netherworld of alcohol, drugs, prostitution, and sadomasochism." Andrew Cunanan's torrent of death ended in 1997 in Miami Beach with the demon-possessed homosexual taking his own life.

Reliable sources tell us that Andrew Cunanan's rage was triggered when he was horribly abused at a Chicago mansion during a homo-satanic ritual at a gay "masquerade ball." Cunanan, a handsome but confused young man in his 20s, had been used as a sexual gigolo by an inner circle of rich, gay Illuminati adepts—he was passed around and used up like a mildewed sack of potatoes. Gianni Versace, a billionaire who had singer Elton John as one of the frequent live-ins at his luxurious residence, was reputed to be a figure in this inner circle of kinky Illuminist homosexuals.

As thousands cower under the howling rockets and bursting shells unleashed by the Syrian regime, opposition leaders have released thousands of emails exchanged between the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and his wife Asma, a British-born and educated beauty who has long been held to be a shining example of modern womanhood, featured many times in fashion magazines and the like.

Some of the emails show Asma making jokes at the expense of the people of Homs, who have been under siege and sustained attack for some time. Several Western journalists have been killed while covering the assault, which current reports describe as brutal and indiscriminate. In another email, Asma claims to be the real power behind the regime, saying that Bashar al-Assad has no choice but to listen to her. Evidently, her advice has not been merciful.

Not long before the Arab Spring revolts that erupted last year, the first ladies of the Arab world were regularly praised as trail-blazing feminists who commanded great influence and power. Of 22 Arab states, 15 first ladies signed up for a feminist organization called the Arab Women Organization. In 2009, Helen Smith of The Guardian described the group as “founded with the express purpose of empowering women…” and lavishes praise on its members.

The list of member states is eye-opening: Jordan, the Emirates, Bahrain, Tunisia, Algeria, Sudan, Syria, Oman, Palestine, Lebanon, Libya, Egypt, Mauritania, Morocco and Yemen are all members. All but a couple of these states have faced unrest over the last year, and nearly half open civil war or regime change.

One of the things feminists often claim is that if women ran the world, there would be no more war, conflict, hunger, etc. Anyone with a cursory knowledge of history knows this to be ridiculous; female heads of state have been every bit as warmongering as their male counterparts, if not more so. From Queen Isabella and Elizabeth I to Empress Dowager Cixi, female leaders have been associated with bloodshed and chaos. Now, if we are to take her word for it, we have Asma Assad to add to the list.

One thing Westerners tend not to understand about the Arab world is that although the people themselves tend to be deeply conservative and traditional, their elites and leaders are far less so. This is beginning to become more the case in the US, but the divide is far more stark in places such as Egypt and Syria. Many of the leaders – and their wives – were educated in the liberal Western tradition when anti-traditionalism was at its peak, while opposition leaders are more likely to have gone to school in madrassas to study classical Arabic and the Koran. The Arab people see these first ladies traveling around in limousines bedecked with priceless jewels and wearing the latest fashions while mouthing platitudes about women’s rights and “progress.” In the meanwhile, young Arab men can’t find work and many of their would-be wives are stuck at home with little chance of starting a family of their own.

We aren’t there yet, but we’re getting closer by the day. If our feminists can’t see their role in creating the kind of social decay that eventually leads to regime change, it’s only because it isn’t in their nature to concern themselves with these matters. As for the Arab elites who let their wives rule, we have only to read the newspaper to see what eventually happens to men who grow soft and seek counsel in the bedchamber.

Ancient Shopping Lists Confirm God’s Word

When soldiers at a remote desert fortress in Judah penned their shopping lists (or, more accurately, their provisions lists) over 2,600 years ago, they probably did not think that archaeologists would be poring over their handwriting years later!

Using a computer algorithm program, researchers from Tel Aviv University have been studying these ancient lists of military provisions written on pieces of pottery (called ostraca).1 By analyzing the handwriting, they were able to deduce that at least six individuals were involved in writing these inscriptions. The inscriptions themselves are rather mundane, merely featuring instructions on what supplies to send to a remote desert fortress; but the writing is accurate and well done. Much of the writing was penned by rather low-ranking officials, suggesting that even humble soldiers serving in a remote corner of the country could both read and write.

Literate or Illiterate?

Scholars have long disputed the level of literacy among ancient Israelites. Many believe only the educated—scribes, priests, royalty, and the bureaucracy—were literate and that the general populace was unable to read and write. But Scripture implies that literacy would be a necessity, even among the general populace.

SCRIPTURE IMPLIES THAT LITERACY WOULD BE A NECESSITY, EVEN AMONG THE GENERAL POPULACE.

Genesis 5:1 mentions the “book of the generations of Adam” (using the normal Hebrew word for book or scroll), suggesting that Adam was created with the ability not only to speak but also to write. It also seems reasonable that the genealogical information in Genesis 5 and 11 was also written down. And given that Noah and his family built the Ark, is it likely that they could not write? The Israelites were commanded to write the commands of the Lord on their doorposts and bind them on their hands and foreheads (Deuteronomy 6:4–9, 11:18–20). If they could not read or write, what would be the point of these commands? When Joshua prepared to allot the inheritance to seven of the Israelite tribes, he asked each tribe to send out three men to survey the land. These men “wrote the survey in a book” (Joshua 18:9); they could read and write. And in Joshua’s farewell address, he commanded the people to obey everything written in the Book of the Law of Moses, implying they could read (Joshua 23:6). When King Hezekiah made the decision that Israel and Judah would again keep the Passover, he sent letters across the land to inform the people. This would have been useless if they could not read his letter (2 Chronicles 30:1). Other passages also suggest literacy among the ancient Israelites (Judges 8:14; 2 Kings 17:37; Psalm 102:18; Habakkuk 2:2).

Widespread Literacy Supports True Scriptural Timelines

This question of literacy may seem mundane and unimportant, but it is actually a very important discussion. Many scholars have used the illiteracy argument (among many other presuppositions) to assume that the vast majority of biblical texts were not written until after the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem in 586 BC. They claim that the Old Testament, with the exception of some form of the Pentateuch, could not have been written prior to the exile to Babylon because most of the Israelite population was illiterate. Therefore it must have been written after the Babylonians, and later Persians, educated the Israelites.

This late dating of the Old Testament texts clashes with the biblical testimony that many texts were written as history happened or even before the event (prophetic). Most conservative biblical scholars who start with God’s Word believe the Old Testament record that the books were written by the persons associated with them or those who claim to have written them. They also accept that these books were written during the time period they claim to have been written in (e.g., the prophet Isaiah during the reigns of the pre-exilic kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah). If these books were not written until decades or even centuries after the events happened, the historicity, accuracy, and infallibility of the texts are called into question since they claim to have been written much earlier.

These ostraca researchers claim that their findings bear on the discussion of when the Old Testament books were written. They write, “However, widespread literacy offers a better background for the composition of ambitious works such as the Book of Deuteronomy and the history of Ancient Israel in the Books of Joshua to Kings.”2 They argue that, due to widespread literacy, many Old Testament books could have been written much earlier than is generally assumed by many liberal scholars.

Archaeology Again Corroborates Scripture

This new study supports the accuracy of God’s Word. It demonstrates that Israel was more literate than many scholars believe. This means that prophets—even prophets who were common folk such as Amos, a shepherd (Amos 1:1)—could have been literate and able to pen their writings.

IF HISTORY HAS TAUGHT ANYTHING, IT’S THAT EVENTUALLY RESEARCH AND SCIENCE WILL CONFIRM SCRIPTURE.

If history has taught anything, it’s that eventually research and science will confirm Scripture. We have an imperfect and incomplete understanding of history and science, but God’s Word was ultimately written by the God who was there and who never lies (Titus 1:2). Beginning with God’s Word, we have an accurate starting point for studying the world around us. When science or popular thought seems to contradict God’s Word, it is not God’s Word that needs modification, but rather our interpretations of the evidence.

The more we study the remains of lost civilizations, the more evidence will be found that, when properly understood, confirms God’s Word. As Christians, we can have full and utter confidence in the Word of our Lord.

Is Sigourney Weaver a shapeshifter alien??

Did they hide Sigourney Weaver in plain sight all this time, with those "Alien" movies???

I was watching this old flick "Dave", and the elevator scene freaked the fuck out of me.

Check out her face in the door's reflection:

[link to imgur.com]

Yes, it that facial deforming could have been caused by a dent in the metal, as long as that's a prop door.

But there are no distortions in Kevin Kline and Ving Rhame's reflections, and if you watch the movie there's something going on in the elevator, Rames is looking at Sigourney's face in the reflection and Kline shuts his eyes for a moment.

Maybe it was nothing, maybe it not.

I wish I had downloaded a 1080p copy.

[W]e live in a world where many of our Jewish sons and daughters are disappearing into assimilation and intermarriage. From your letter I gathered you are a traditional family who go to synagogue from time to time, keep a kosher home, make Shabbos and Yom Tov dinners, have mezuzahs on the doorposts, etc. But this does not guarantee that your future generations will cling to those mitzvahs and remain within the fold.

So try to protect the Judaism of their descendants. You can do this by making provisions in your will for the yeshiva education of all your grandchildren, for establishing a kosher home when they marry, etc. And make it clear that any beneficiary who chooses not to accept these terms will forfeit the money you allocated for this purpose and it will go to a tzedakah of your designation.

May Hashem grant you Yiddishe nachas and shalom bayis from generation to generation.

HADES is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word SHEOL and is located at the center of the stationary earth.

Tartarus is the temporary abode of the fallen angels or GIANTS who corrupted mankind before the Great Flood of Noah:

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell (Gk. Tartarus), and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. (II Peter 2:4).

Some GIANTS like Goliath went there later and the giants that inhabited the New World are also there.

Most people laugh at the idea of HELL and refuse to believe that such a place exists. Most of the out-of-body or near death experiences describe a pleasant sensation with visions of an angel of light or some kind of benevolent being welcoming them to paradise.

Reports of people who describe a totally different and horrifying experience are often suppressed.

For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell (sheol), and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. (Deuteronomy 32:22).

For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12: 40).

He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in (Hades), neither his flesh did see corruption.(Acts 2:31).

HADES is also called the bottomless pit or simply the PIT....Most people have to die first before going there, but there is an account in the Bible of men who rebelled against JEHOVAH and Moses . . . and they went down ALIVE into Sheol:

[...]

Allah is a sure ticket for a journey to the center of the earth!!

The demon Allah who is worshipped in the Islamic religion is a sure guarantee that you will miss PARADISE and end up at the center of the stationary earth.

Islam DENIES the 3 central doctrines of true Christianity:

1. The Bible is the ONLY and Final revelation of Almighty God.
2. The 3 divine and eternal persons in the ONE TRUE GOD.
3. The Resurrection of the Son of God from the dead.

[...]

Don't end up in HELL....get your password to HEAVEN now!!

Every day of the year, at least 155,000 people die and most of them make a journey to the center of the stationary earth.

You can avoid this HELLISH experience by getting your PASSWORD to Heaven right now!!

The password to Heaven is . . . BLOOD . . . as in "the BLOOD of JOSHUA CHRIST, God's Son cleanseth us from ALL sin" (I St. John 1:7).

The Exodus from Egypt was a type of the redemption in Christ. Egypt was symbolized as a type of HELL as it is called an IRON FURNACE:

But JEHOVAH hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the IRON FURNACE, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day. (Deuteronomy 4:20).

Deliverance from Egypt mandated the killing of an innocent LAMB and sprinkling its blood on the doorposts of the house....When JEHOVAH saw the BLOOD, He passed over that house, and the people escaped death and a journey to the center of the earth.

Just as an apple tree is an incredibly fine-tuned system for the production of apples because a single apple seed constitutes the genotype of that phenotype, so is our universe an incredibly fine-tuned system for the production of human beings because a single human being constitutes the genotype of the phenotype cosmos.

This living cosmology provides numerous critical insights. Among others it predicts:

(...)

•By virtue of its eternity human intelligence constitutes the cosmological constant.

•Human intelligence has quantum properties because it exists in both particle and field states. Human intelligence in its potential or seed state is a particle, but in its state of expression takes on field characteristics, and thus provides the morphogenetic field or quantum vacuum of the universe for the development of the creatures it has in mind.

(...)

•The recognition that our genome constitutes the microcosm or algorithm of the universe will lead to its utilization for all kinds of purposes, and will render fossil fuels obsolete. Instead of extracting energy from the remains of former life, we are going to tap directly into the seed source of the universe, and utilize that vacuum energy for the animation of our space vehicles.

•We'll be able to read the minds of others, just as Elijah was able to read the mind of the king of Syria, and tell the king of Israel the words Syria’s king spoke in the privacy of his bedchamber (see 2 Kings 6:8-23). This form of ESPionage will make the traditional methods of intelligence gathering obsolete.

•The human yield of this planet is ripe for the harvest. This is indicated by the fact that we have reached the stage of space travel. Those who qualify will be selected for survival, but not by Darwin’s imaginary “natural” selection. Our Creator in person is going to decide who is, or is not, qualified to live for ever. So face-to-face contact with our Creator is at hand.

These are some of the predictions we can make based on the theory of creation. They are falsifiable, and demonstrate the theory of creation’s predictive power.

The Sentinels said in unison, “AS WE SAID DEMON, YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!” Swinging his maul high over his head, Asmodeus bellowed, “WE WILL SEE! I WILL CRUSH YOU BOTH AND SEND YOUR BONES TO YOUR IMPOTENT GOD!!”

With a heavy swing Asmodeus hammered his weapon into the two Sentinels and sent them sprawling across the ground. The Sentinels quickly regained their footing and attacked the demon of Persia with one assaulting high, the other coming in low. With the axe portion of his halberd, the high Sentinel swung at the throat of Asmodeus and with the spear of his halberd, the low Sentinel stabbed at the dark principality’s midsection viciously. With unbelievable velocity and dexterity, Asmodeus blocked their offenses and pressed one of his own. Asmodeus grabbed the throat of the high-attacking Sentinel and flung him forty feet into the air. He then used his own maul and struck the low-attacking Sentinel full in his face breaking his golden helmet and drawing a stream of ichor that arched across the demon’s war hammer. With fantastic agility, the demon of rage leaped into the air and caught the descending Sentinel angel by the collar of his armored breastplate. With incredible strength and thrust, Asmodeus slammed the angel head first into the ground creating a small impact crater and earthquake. Landing near the Sentinel’s broken form, Asmodeus placed his maul behind him and used his enormous strength to lift the stunned angel high into the air. The demon extended his arms upward, placing the remaining Sentinel on the evil principality’s shoulders. Asmodeus brutishly slammed him down in an elevated power bomb onto the dazed form of his twin, knocking them both unconscious.

Roaring in triumph, Asmodeus mocked, “WHO’S NEXT?!!”

Lucifer and the Fallen laughed at the ease in which Asmodeus dispatched the Sentinels. The dark lord yelled, “Asmodeus! Tear those gates down!”

With a vicious kick of the defeated Sentinels out of his path, Asmodeus removed his massive maul and hurled it at the gates of the temple. The weapon tore through the gates with an ear-splitting crash that left a mangled mass of steel, stone, and swirling dust and debris. Asmodeus then brought his huge hands together in a single clap that created a powerful shock wave. The force moved forward at supersonic speed like a detonation wave as it brought down an enormous section of the wall that surrounded the temple.

General Azazel turned to Lord Belial and said, “Send forth the Mazzikim Sheidim and show no mercy!”

Belial whirled his dragon around and barked, “First wave, attack!” A group of a thousand of the Mazzikim Sheidim swarmed like locusts toward the demolished gates ready to feast upon the inhabitants of the temple.

Lucifer called after them, “Do as you wish with the angels, but do not harm the humans for they are mine!” The demonic assault force slowed at Lucifer’s voice and acknowledged his command before proceeding.

Suddenly, a flash of light so intense it halted the demons in their tracks, and the angels of the Mal’akhim Charon af HaShem appeared ready for battle filling the courtyard completely. The evil wave started to fall in behind the Mazzikim Sheidim when Lucifer raised his hand which halted the lieutenants.

“In chess, it is prudent that the pawns move first. They remain strong when they move in a chain. You are my knights, bishops, and rooks; therefore, one of you will be instrumental in my checkmate.” Lucifer smiled mischievously, as he continued,

“Besides, I have something interesting planned for our prey that you all will find quite delectable.”
Like locusts swarming over lush fields of greenery, the Mazzikim Sheidim poured like the raging flood waters of a storm-laden river into the breached wall of the temple.

General Ariel, who stood at the head of the Mal’akhim Charon af HaShem and said with holy zeal, “No matter what darkness comes through those gates, stand your ground and defend this temple as you have in centuries past!”

With complete certainty, Goel intoned, ''Despite everything, Jonathan, God is truly in control of everything. Even when things seem hopeless and all is dark, when your way is beset by troubles and your enemies are all around you, the Lord is there waiting to aid you."
Full of despair, Jonathan said, "Part of me knows this, but on the other hand, part of me says what if everything I have been taught is nothing but a carefully scripted deception designed to keep me enslaved to the whims of a being less than what He says He is?" Goel was utterly amazed and responded abruptly.
"Despite whatever you are wrestling with, my friend, you know deep down inside that is not true! At the core of eveiy human being there is knowledge of the veracity of the certainty that God is who He says He is, even if His reality is denied or substituted for some other belief! You are one of the most intelligent humans ever born in this world, and you know that the complex simplicity of creation indicates that everything that exists in this cosmos could not exist if not for the hand of Divine Immanence behind it. It is a mathematical impossibility for the universe to have sprung into existence from chaotic nothingness complete with all the laws of physics already in place to ensure that everything works in an efficient manner."
Goel surprised Jonathan by showing the young man a rare side to his own personality.
"In terms with which you are intimately familiar with, Jonathan, the mathematics of probability refutes the universe coming into reality purely coincidentaily. The calculations of British mathematician Roger Penrose show that the probability of universe conducive to life occurring by chance is on the order of 1010123 to 1."
"What number is that?" Goel questioned.
Jonathan's mind kicked into high gear as he did the calculations in his mind, and he said, "In math, the value 10123 means 1 followed by 123 zeros. That's more than the total number of atoms 10 s believed to exist in the whole universe."
Enthusiastically, Goel said, "The phrase 'extremely unlikely' is inadequate to describe this possibility. In practical terms, a mathematical probability of 1 in 10?0 means "zero probability." Penrose's number is more than a trillion upon trillions of times less than that. More importantly, Penrose's number tells us that the 'accidental" or "coincidental" creation of the universe is an impossibility. The numbers defining the design and plan of the universe's equilibrium play a crucial role and exceed comprehension. They prove that the cosmos is by no means the product of a coincidence, or how precise God intended for it to be. In fact, in order to recognize that the universe is not a product of coincidences, one does not really need any of these calculations at all. Simply by looking around himself, a person can easily perceive the fact of creation in even the tiniest details of what he sees."
As if magnetized by the magnificent view, the ancient warrior walked towards the balcony. Jonathan, totally intrigued, joined his protector. Goel never ceased to amaze.
"How could a universe like this, perfect in its systems, the sun, the earth, people, houses, cars, trees, flowers, insects, and all the other things in it ever have come into existence as the result of atoms falling together by chance after an explosion? Every detail we peer at shows the evidence of God's existence and supreme power. Only people who reflect can grasp these signs."
Thoughtfully, Jonathan quietly said, "In the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and day, and the ships which sail the seas to people's benefit, and the water which Allah sends down from the sky— by which He brings the earth to life when it was dead and scatters about in it creatures of every kind— and the varying direction of the winds, and the clouds subservient between heaven and earth, there are signs for people who use their intellect."
Jonathan released a slight chuckle as he continued, "I read that in the Surat al-Baqara, Verse of the Cow, in the Qur'an."
Shaking his head, Goel said, with the intention to elucidate further, "Even those who do not hold to the truths inherent to the Holy Scriptures are touched by the rectitude of whom and what God is. Those who are in no way your equal in intellectualness have known this simple truth: God is real! Science has come up with categorical evidence that the universe was created by God. The anthropic principle reveals every detail of a universe that has been designed for mankind to live in and in which there is no place for chance. The interesting pait is that the ones who discovered all this are the very same people who defend the philosophy of materialism. Scientists such as Paul Davies, Arno Penzias, Fred Hoyle, and Roger Penrose are not pious men, and they certainly had no intention of proving God's existence as they pursued their work. One can imagine that they reached then* conclusions about the design of the universe by a superior power most unwillingly."
"The American astronomer George Greenstein confesses in his book, The Symbiotic Universe, he and his colleagues stumbled upon scientific proof of the existence of a Supreme Being. Having surveyed all the evidence, an insistent thought arose. There is indeed some supernatural agency involved in the design of the universe. Greenstein pondered near believingly that it was God who stepped in and so providentially crafted the cosmos for our benefit. An atheist, Greenstein disregards the plain truth; nevertheless he cannot keep from wondering. Other less prejudiced scientists, on the other hand, readily admit that the universe must have been specially ordered for mankind to live in."
Jonathan, a very learned and somewhat spiritual man in his own right, felt the dots linking science and theology were compelling. Goers scope of knowledge widened steadily.
"The American astrophysicist Hugh Ross ends his article Design and the Anthropic Principle with these words: 'An intelligent, transcendent Creator must have brought the universe into existence. An intelligent, transcendent Creator must have designed the universe. An intelligent, transcendent Creator must have designed planet Earth. An intelligent, transcendent Creator must have designed life.' Thus, science proves the reality of creation. Certainly, there is God and He has created everything around us, the seen and the unseen. He is the sole Creator of the extraordinary, outstanding equilibrium and design of the heavens and Earth.
"It has come such a pass that today, materialism has the flavor of a superstitious, unscientific system of belief. The American geneticist Robert Griffiths jokingly remarked 'If we need an atheist for a debate, I go to the philosophy department. The physics department isn't much use.'
"Every physical law and every physical constant in this universe has been specifically designed to enable human beings to exist and live. In his book The Cosmic Blueprint, Davies states this truth in the last paragraph: 'The impression of Design is overwhelming.' Doubtlessly, the design of the universe is evidence of God's power to establish. The precise balances and all the human beings and other creatures are the evidence of God's supreme power and act of creation."
In all the discussions with Goel he had over the years, never before had Goel shown this depth of scientific knowledge. In a word, Jonathan was deeply impressed with Goel's profundity. This added a new dimension to his longtime protector, one which he would always remember.
Bowing to his mentor, Jonathan graciously said, "I had no idea you were so well versed in the philosophy of physics, Goel. I heard your words with more than my ears. You spoke to my mind and spirit."
