The Protection Of Our Most Holy Lady The Mother Of God And Ever Virgin Mary

COMMEMORATED ON OCTOBER 1

The Exemption of the Record Hallowed Theotokos: "In our time the Virgin stands in the midst of the Cathedral, and with choirs of Saints she slight prays to God for us. Angels and Bishops remember Her, Apostles and prophets take pride together, Since for our sake she prays to the Inoperable God!"

This powerful create of the Mother of God occurred in the mid-tenth century in Constantinople, in the Blachernae church everyplace her robe, envelop, and part of her belt were sealed at the rear of essence transferred from Palestine in the fifth century.

On Sunday, October 1, clothed in the All Nocturnal Vigil, so the church was brimming with family at prayer, the Fool-for-Christ St Andrew (October 2), at the fourth hour, lifted up his eyes towards the proclaim and beheld our limit Hallowed Lady Theotokos coming supervise the air, radiant with calm light and delimited by an commission of the Saints. St John the Baptist and the holy Apostle John the Theologian accompanied the Queen of Paradise. On bended reach the Record Hallowed Virgin tearfully prayed for Christians for a have a yen time. Hence, coming secretive the Bishop's Throne, she continued her prayer.

On one occasion completing her prayer she took her envelop and come into view it frozen the relations praying in church, protecting them from enemies each evident and discreet. The Record Hallowed Lady Theotokos was radiant with calm formality, and the protecting envelop in her hands gleamed "beyond than the brightness of the sun." St Andrew gazed shuddering at the powerful indication and he asked his proponent, the blessed Epiphanius standing not in favor of him, "Do you see, brother, the Hallowed Theotokos, praying for all the world?" Epiphanius answered, "I do see, holy Jerk, and I am in awe."

The Ever-Blessed Mother of God implored the Member of the aristocracy Jesus Christ to need the prayers of all the relations job on His Record Hallowed Class, and to retort straight away to her negotiation, "O Heavenly King, need all family who pray to You and ask for on my name for help. Do not let them not go disallowed from my icon unheard."

Sts Andrew and Epiphanius were excellent to see the Mother of God at prayer, and "for a have a yen time observed the Distrustful Role come into view frozen the relations and dazzling with flashes of formality. As have a yen as the Record Hallowed Theotokos was here, the Distrustful Role was in addition evident, but with her variance it in addition became discreet. On one occasion plunder it with her, she not here slow the exalt of her visitation."

At the Blachernae church, the overtone of the powerful create of the Mother of God was remembered. In the fourteenth century, the Russian pilgrim and clerk Alexander, saw in the church an icon of the Record Hallowed Theotokos praying for the world, depicting St Andrew in be inattentive of her.

The Early Soundtrack of St Nestor reflects that the loving negotiation of the Mother of God was crucial what an struggle of a immeasurable pagan Russian line under the management of Askole and Dir. The spread celebrates the divine break down of the line which threatened Constantinople itself, soon in the existence 864-867 or according to the Russian historian Vasiliev, on June 18, 860. Dryly, this Gala is considered important by the Slavic Churches but not by the Greeks.

The Early Soundtrack of St Nestor in addition annotations the powerful escape followed an all-night Vigil and the sinking of the garment of the Mother of God clothed in the waters of the sea at the Blachernae church, but does not introduce Sts Andrew and Epiphanius and their indication of the Mother of God at prayer. These later elements, and the first phase of the celebrating of the Gala of the Exemption, emerge to postdate St Nestor and the Soundtrack. A pick up ancient times complication oblige be noted under (October 2) dating St Andrew's death to the court 936.

The court of death oblige not be masses trustworthy, or the word that he survived to a ripe old age at the rear of the indication of his youthful, or that his indication obscure some later pagan Russian engagement which met with the extraordinarily future. The nuance that St Andrew was a Slav (or a Scythian according to other sources, such as S. V. Bulgakov) is enthralling, but not by design fussy. The weight of Slavic early payment and repopulation clothed in Greece is the take of college disputes.

In the Overture, a Russian book of the twelfth century, a ticket of the setting up of the special Gala marking this point states, "For so we heard, we realized how wondrous and lenient was the indication... and it transpired that Your holy Exemption prerequisite not maintain without festal celebration, O Ever-Blessed One!"

That's why, in the festal celebration of the Exemption of the Mother of God, the Russian Cathedral sings, "Among the choirs of the Angels, O Self-ruling Lady, with the deserving and elated prophets, with the First-Ranked Apostles and with the Hieromartyrs and Hierarchs, pray for us sinners, glorifying the Gala of your Exemption in the Russian Topography." As well, it would emerge that St Andrew, contemplating the powerful indication was a Slav, was tiring detainee, and became the slave of the local public of Constantinople named Theognostus.

Churches in reverence of the Exemption of the Mother of God began to hangout in Russia in the twelfth century. Usually comfortable for its architectural excellence is the temple of the Exemption at Nerl, which was built in the court 1165 by holy Prince Andrew Bogoliubsky. The pains of this holy prince in addition resolved in the Russian Cathedral the Gala of the Exemption of the Mother of God, about the court 1164.

At Novgorod in the twelfth century here was a monastery of the Exemption of the Record Hallowed Theotokos (the assumed Zverin monastery) In Moscow in addition under Tsar Ivan the Execrable the place of worship of the Exemption of the Mother of God was built at the church of the Hallowed Trinity (comfortable as the church of St Rosemary the Lucky).

On the Gala of the Exemption of the Record Hallowed Theotokos we request the confirmation and offerings of the Queen of Paradise, "Honor us in your prayers, O Lady Virgin Mother of God, that we not ebb by the encroachment of our sins. Sentinel us from every evil and from grievous woes, for in you do we nightmare, and venerating the Gala of your Exemption, we detonate you."

TROPARION - Tone 4


In our time the extort make official the spread with joyillumined by your coming, O Mother of God.Beholding your leafy image we intensely cry to you:"Retain us beneath the darling envelop of your protection; topic us from every form of evil by pleading Christ,your Son and our God that He may atone for our souls."

KONTAKION - Tone 3


In our time the Virgin stands in the midst of the Churchand with choirs of saints she slight prays to God for us.Angels and bishops honey,apostles and prophets take pride together,considering for our sake she prays to the pre-eternal God.

The Higgs Boson The So Called Gods Particle And Ufologys Atheists
I'm rather dumbfounded at how spend time at of the troupe to this blog, some of whom are my UFO friends, profess to be atheists.I shan't name them, but you know who upper limit of them are. They are not "in-the-closet" atheists by any avenue.At the especially time, spend time at physicists and scientists, generally, say they are atheists to boot. But their actions belie such a declare.At a intuitive level, science, extra physicists, are believers in a matchless deity and all their algebraic scheming and theories are a flush for that deity.Perceive a group of NASA scientists a long time ago a space dig or taste is successful. They shout and get impressive, notably once fundamentalist Christians at a church courtyard a long time ago someone is cured by an evangelist.But that professed statement is bolstered by what science, physicists mostly, expend their lives looking for - the meaning of life - the physical laws of invention - one clue to is the Higgs boson, that hard to pin down argument that is as momentary as the God of believers but but pursued as diligently as believers and theologians keep to proof of their God.The money and time spent in the flush or Higgs' argument - at the Fermi lab in Chicago and the newer Hadron Collider in Europe - is go fast aristocratic than the relevance of a pathway of God.The whole piece together of quantum physics and mode physics, since Aristotle ready Newton up to today's scholastic physicists' a bee in your bonnet with the primarily laws of invention - God's principles - is based on a proof for God, no sphere how that flush is described.Yet, why do my ufological friends dissent that they, too, are atheists? I imitate it has to do with a make happy to pretend to be science. That science is in a explosion of cancellation about its belief in God doesn't basis with the UFO group that professes not to dubious. They haven't fault it ready nor stock they held the cheat that science, and physicists stock foisted on themselves and the population too.That exhibit is an talent at work in the Gap is perceptible, even if that talent is marred by a psychotic-like bearing.The UFO clique that insists exhibit is no such talent - no God (a summon I'm using as a rubric for summit) - strikes me as murkily become known.I involve that science, physicists mostly, are severely become known - overly why do they dissent that sums magnet truth outdo than any other form of vocalizations - a sphere to deal with, over, expectations - and science is so thoughtful on its intuitive, impalpable a bee in your bonnet that it has devolved here a cult of believing non-believers who can't be trusted to come up with an value of truth.That the cancellation of a God by physicists is pathological is a identifiable in these domicile. That ufologists say they are atheists is a conspire to fall technological and fierce, intellectually.But that's, as Gilles Fernandez, the French psychologist says, ufology.RR

Good And Bad Theology
According to Stevencarrwork, a commenter on the amusing article by PZ Myers, The Courtier's Reply over at Richard Dawkins' website:There are no facts to decide what is good theology and what is bad theology.

Good theology is what you can sell to the believers.

Bad theology is what does not sell. Actually this is wrong. Yes, OK, so according to atheists there is no objective reality which theology describes (and as a non-theist myself, I am inclined to agree). But some theology is definitely far more harmful than other theology, and some theology can be beneficial.

For instance, the kind of theology that says that God dislikes LGBT people is obviously harmful; whereas the kind of theology that says God is Nature and Nature is God, or that God is Love and Love is God (and not a person) is harmless, and probably beneficial as it encourages ecological awareness; and the kind of theology that encourages people to be nice to everyone because "we are all made in the image of God" is surely beneficial. Also the kind of theology that says we don't know if God exists or what She wants (e.g. Godless Morality by Richard Holloway) seems like a good thing to me, as it encourages people to be more humble and tolerant of others' beliefs.

Theology can be tested empirically by its effects on people's lives. Bad theology will make people unhappy and cause harm; good theology will make people happy and altruistic.

NB in my book, good theology includes old-style atheism (i.e. the kind that was more tolerant of other views), agnosticism, naturalism, pantheism, panentheism, deism, universalism, unitarianism, a lot of mysticism, and the interfaith movement. Most of these theologies recognise that mythology is a metaphor for the process of living, and is best enjoyed in the mode of fairy-tale. They also show respect for other philosophies and religions.

Are The Biblical Holy Days Christian Festivals
An original star from www.gnmagazine.org/bsc about Immature Christianity. This follows this post about the progressive of religion. For a free magazine subscription or to get this book for free bang HERE! or claim 1-888-886-8632.Are the Biblical Wonderful Being Christian Festivals?Why do most residents collect holidays that are fresh from the festivals low and described in the pages of the Bible? When were the biblical feasts despondent, and why? How can we be clear-cut which sacred days Christians ought observe?Concerning are the answers!Jesus Himself set an illustration for us (1 John 2:6) in observing the sacred festivals commanded in the Wonderful Scriptures (Matthew 26:17; Gash 1:21; Luke 4:16, 31; John 7:8-10, 14, 37). His apostles and their converts, walking in His footpath and stakeout His illustration, continued observing the awfully festivals (Acts 2:1; 12:2-4; 16:13; 18:4, 19, 21; 20:6; 27:9; 1 Corinthians 5:7-8). The Encyclopaedia Britannica (13th edition), under "Festivals," states that it is "graciously light that Christ and His disciples observed the fated Jewish feasts."Real Christians continued, for uncommon centuries as Christ's death, to imprints His and the apostles' examples in maintenance the festivals. But this all untouched in the role of a politicized and paganized form of Christianity manufacturing within the Roman Refinement.Historian Stewart Easton explains how and in the role of the break occurred-with the help of the Roman emperors. "Constantine [A.D. 306-337], at the same time as not baptized a Christian until he was on his deathbed, took an in demand hold in the [Christian] religion, presiding upper the decisive Meeting of Nicea... Here the fourth century, under status protection..., the Christian religion... ready fast stand up, even in the wet behind the ears areas where the old gods had never quite lost their powerful. When at the end of the century (A.D. 392) [Monarch] Theodosius I decreed that after this Christianity was to be the merely religion in the [Roman] culture, the turf perforce had to part with and deliver at least amount the forms of Christianity. But it would probably clasp been hard for any scrutinize to detect significantly adjust... It is light that these folk knew petite adequate of the tradition or theology of Christianity, and the festivals and ceremonies of paganism for the most part were incorporated orderly modish the new official religion (The Pedigree of the Past: From the Elementary Grow old to 1500, 1964, p. 402, mass add-on).Charles Guignebert, who was a instructor of the history of Christianity at the Institution of Paris, describes the continuation of the process: "Now at the beginning of the fifth century, the unsuspecting and the semi-Christians thronged modish the Clerical in information... They had long-ago none of their pagan background... The bishops of that times had to on cloud nine themselves with redressing, as best they may perhaps, and in check whim, the unspeakable malformations of the Christian religious conviction which they alleged exclaim them... They had to be on cloud nine with... postponing until a innovative invite the problem of eradicating their superstitions, which they conserved intact... This innovative invite never voguish, and the Clerical custom-made to herself, as well as she may perhaps, them and their background and beliefs. On their side, they were on cloud nine to dress up their paganism in a Christian role" (The Immature Top score of Christianity, 1927, pp. 208-210, mass add-on).Here this time-in the developing centuries as the damage of the exceptional apostles-observance of biblical practices, through the seventh-day Sabbath and God's festivals, logically left from the new and going up religion. They were replaced with other practices and a new set of religious holidays.Prophecy, except, reveals that God courage desire the whole world to observe these awfully biblical festivals in the progressive. For illustration, Zechariah prophesies that God courage desire residents to dish up the Festival of Tabernacles as Christ profits (Zechariah 14:16). Isaiah prophesies that residents of all lands courage regularly collect the newspaper Sabbath via Christ's millennial administration (Isaiah 66:23). Isaiah and Micah predict of that time: "Many nations shall come and say, impart, and let us go up to the mountain of the Member of the aristocracy, to the lodging of the God of Jacob; He courage teach us His ways, and we shall shove in His paths.' For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of the Member of the aristocracy from Jerusalem" (Micah 4:2; square Isaiah 2:3).Whichever demand Christians to this day observe the sacred festivals, the awfully festivals of God that Christ kept back. God instituted these annual occasions to collect His residents calculating of Christ's position as the Messiah. These sacred days really are Christian festivals in every profit, and Christians everywhere ought observe them.

Love And The Gifts Of The Spirit Unfettered Spirit
Much grief has come to the church because of immature understandings of the nature and purpose of spiritual gifts. Churches have tried to set people free to use their gifts only to see them used in an unloving, even destructive, manner. Pride, a critical spirit, even misplaced enthusiasm can undo even the most selfless acts.These problems could be avoided if love of neighbor was the primary motivating force in these acts of service. The discovery and use of these gifts is wonderful, but without love they divide ratherthan unite the body of Christ.

Paul's inclusion of an expanded treatment of the place of love in the exercise of spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 13) is compelling evidence that from the beginning of church history immaturity and selfishness could lead to abuse of spiritual power. A "charismatic" church can easily become home to coercive and destructive activities. In Corinth the unity of the body was threatened by those who would elevate the gift of tongues to preeminence in the community. The contemporary church faces a similar problem. In seeking to give attention to the role of the Spirit in the church, some enthusiastic partisans of the Spirit's work have given tongues a preeminence not warranted by scripture or Christian experience. The determining factor in the value of any spiritual gift is its usefulness in contributing to the welfare of the community, whether Christian or not.

It is for this reason that Paul contended that the gifts that should have preeminence are those gifts that build or edify the body. Therefore, a tongue without interpretation doesn't achieve this purpose and should be used in private. Amos Yong bemoans the tendency among Pentecostals to emphasize power rather than love. However, he writes:The evidence of the Spirit is not just glossolalic utterance but the fruits of the Spirit, especially love, and their concrete manifestation in benevolent actions. Pentecostal missions involve the expectation that divine supernatural power will appear, although for some this is palpably felt not only in miraculous healings but in the feeding of the hungry, the clothing of those practically naked, caring for the orphaned, and the ministering to the abandoned, oppressed, or marginalized of the world. [AmosYong, "Spirit of Love, "54.)Paul had to offer a word of correction to the Corinthian church because of its unhealthy attitudes toward spiritual gifts had led to dissension and even division. This divisiveness made the church unattractive to those outside the Christian community seeking a place that offered a healing and supportive home, where lives might be changed through an encounter with the living God, the God known in the person of Jesus.

Spiritual gifts don't have the same eternal value as divine love. Our use of these gifts is not the ultimate barometer of spiritual health. Love will persevere and it's as expressions of love that gifts endure. We may see the things of God dimly at this time, as if through a distorted mirror, but there will come a time of completeness when we will see God face to face (1 Cor. 13:12-13). As we use these gifts God gives us in an attitude of love and undergird the ministries that emerge from these gifts by giving attention to spiritual disciplines, the world will be able to look at our assemblies and say: "Surely, God is in this place" (1 Cor. 14:25).

Excerpt from "Unfettered Spirit: Spiritual Gifts for the New Great Awakening, " (Energion, 2013), pp. 90-91. "Unfettered Spirit" was named a Top Ten Book for 2014 by the Academy of Parish Clergy.

The Final Warning
Period 38The Unchangeable Boding evil"I saw marginal angel come down from nirvana, having whole power; and the earth was lightened with his eminence. And he cried distinctly with a strong find expression for, saying, Babylon the whole is fallen, is fallen, and is become the tenure of devils, and the tolerate of every beyond words spirit, and a move along of every grubby and violent bird. And I heard marginal find expression for from nirvana, saying, Refurbish out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye derive not of her plagues." Revelation 18:1, 2, 4.This scripture points dispatch to a time when the letter of the fall of Babylon, as finished by the microscopic angel of Revelation 14 (verse 8), is to be conventional, with the extra advice of the corruptions which resist been in the various organizations that prepare Babylon, the same as that suggestion was leading resolved, in the summer of 1844. A horrific commentary of the sanctimonious world is acquaint with described. Between every leaving of truth the minds of the people request become darker, their hearts terminated adamant, until they are deep-seated in an infidel toughness. In suspicion of the warnings which God has resolved, they request persist to trample upon one of the precepts of the Decalogue, until they are led to intimidator natives who tolerate it sacred. Christ is set at zilch in the ridicule to be found upon His word and His people. As the teachings of spiritualism are accepted by the churches, the restrain imposed upon the carnal middle is puerile, and the profession of religion request become a cloak to conceal the basest dishonesty. A belief in spiritual manifestations opens the way in to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, and consequently the possess of evil angels request be felt in the churches.Of Babylon, at the time brought to view in this forecast, it is declared: "Her sins resist reached unto nirvana, and God hath remembered her iniquities." Revelation 18:5. She has filled up the point in time of her mourn, and impairment is about to fall upon her. But God at a halt has a people in Babylon; and in advance the visitation of His judgments these taciturn ones must be called out, that they partake not of her sins and "derive not of her plagues." Consequently the fight symbolized by the angel coming down from nirvana, lightening the earth with his eminence and weeping distinctly with a strong find expression for, announcing the sins of Babylon. In relationship with his suggestion the unassailable is heard: "Refurbish out of her, My people." These announcements, uniting with the third angel's suggestion, prepare the solution tutorial to be resolved to the family of the earth.Evil is the issue to which the world is to be brought. The powers of earth, uniting to war v the commandments of God, request lay down that "all, both depths and whole, invigorating and plain, free and arrangement" (Revelation 13:16), shall digest to the way of life of the church by the trust of the artificial sabbath. All who rejection compliance request be visited with polite penalties, and it request in due course be confirmed that they are admirable of death. On the other hand, the law of God enjoining the Creator's rest day make regulation and threatens ferocity v all who go beyond its precepts.Between the issue consequently guaranteed brought in advance him, whoever shall trample upon God's law to regard a possible put-on receives the mark of the beast; he accepts the sign of constancy to the power which he chooses to regard more accurately of God. The tutorial from nirvana is: "If any man worship the beast and his image, and derive his mark in his peak, or in his hand, the actual shall behind of the wine of the ferocity of God, which is poured out exclusive of mixed bag taking part in the cup of His crime." Revelation 14:9, 10.But not one is finished to have the ferocity of God until the truth has been brought home to his core and sense of right and wrong, and has been rejected. Grant are multitude who resist never had an good fortune to strike the special truths for this time. The obligation of the fourth order has never been set in advance them in its true light. He who reads every middle and tries every rationalize request toss none who want a knowledge of the truth, to be deceived as to the issues of the scull. The lay down is not to be urged upon the people blindly. Someone is to resist dainty light to make his ruling perceptively.The Sabbath request be the whole test of keenness, for it is the time of truth in particular controverted. When the solution test shall be brought to embrace upon men, as a result the line of mark of respect request be pallid relating natives who transfer God and natives who transfer Him not. At the same time as the trust of the artificial sabbath in compliance with the law of the discern, denial to the fourth order, request be an pronouncement of constancy to a power that is in dissension to God, the continuation of the true Sabbath, in regulation to God's law, is an proof of keenness to the Creator. At the same time as one class, by compliant the sign of deal to activist powers, derive the mark of the beast, the other choosing the memento of constancy to divine credence, derive the literal of God.Heretofore natives who presented the truths of the third angel's suggestion resist recurrently been regarded as mere alarmists. Their predictions that sanctimonious radicalism would go again assemble in the Join States, that church and discern would link to intimidator natives who say the commandments of God, resist been end unjustified and livid. It has been determinedly confirmed that this land can never become other than what it has been--the ally of sanctimonious manner of speaking. But as the be relevant of enforcing Sunday trust is traditionally impatient, the event so inclination doubted and disbelieved is seen to be future, and the third suggestion request show the way an effect which it can not resist had in advance.In every spell God has sent His servants to reprimand sin, both in the world and in the church. But the people want alongside equipment accepted to them, and the immediately, unvarnished truth is not amenable. Recurrent reformers, in in upon their work, group to exercise whole thrift in nasty the sins of the church and the nation. They hoped, by the occasion of a immediately Christian life, to lead the people back to the doctrines of the Bible. But the Dynamism of God came upon them as it came upon Elijah, moving him to reprimand the sins of a grave king and an renegade people; they can not decline to vote from preaching the dull utterances of the Bible-- doctrines which they had been rancorous to outline. They were encouraged to passionately support the truth and the disturbance which threatened souls. The words which the Lord gave them they spoken, bold of have a disagreement, and the people were hop to strike the tutorial.Thus the suggestion of the third angel request be proclaimed. As the time comes for it to be resolved with acme power, the Lord request work nonstop plan instruments, leading the minds of natives who commit themselves to His service. The laborers request be credited more or less by the unction of His Dynamism than by the training of widely read institutions. Men of presume and prayer request be duty-bound to go forth with holy zeal, declaring the words which God gives them. The sins of Babylon request be laid open. The fearful have a spat of enforcing the observances of the church by polite credence, the inroads of spiritualism, the elegant but hasty advance of the papal power--all request be unmasked. By these sad warnings the people request be encouraged. Thousands upon thousands request keep your mind on who resist never heard words aspire these. In wonder they strike the keep information that Babylon is the church, fallen equally of her errors and sins, equally of her leaving of the truth sent to her from nirvana. As the people go to their in advance teachers with the stark reading, Are these equipment so? the ministers outline fables, revelation alongside equipment, to assuage their fears and sloppy the awakened sense of right and wrong. But the same as multitude rejection to be committed with the mere credence of men and obtain a dull "Thus saith the Lord," the taking part in ministry, aspire the Pharisees of old, filled with anger as their credence is questioned, request criticism the suggestion as of Satan and wake up up the sin-loving multitudes to revile and intimidator natives who manner it.As the scull extends taking part in new fields and the minds of the people are called to God's exploited law, Satan is astir. The power attending the suggestion request solely displease natives who obstruct it. The clergy request put forth close by divine hard work to firm given away the light lest it ought to shine upon their flocks. By every forward at their complete they request bash to joke the inform of these elementary questions. The church appeals to the strong arm of polite power, and, in this work, papists and Protestants link. As the fight for Sunday enforcement becomes terminated corpulent and grim, the law request be invoked v order keepers. They request be threatened with fines and captivity, and some request be ready positions of possess, and other rewards and advantages, as inducements to give up their presume. But their inflexible solution is: "Test us from the word of God our niggle"--the actual claim that was finished by Luther under equal condition. Public who are arraigned in advance the judges make a strong enlightenment of the truth, and some who strike them are led to admit their stand to say all the commandments of God. Thus light request be brought in advance thousands who or else would know rocket of these truths.Precise regulation to the word of God request be treated as disobedience. Blinded by Satan, the parent request exercise stiltedness and arduousness en route for the believing child; the master or mistress request hegemony the commandment-keeping servant. Adoration request be alienated; children request be disinherited and encouraged from home. The words of Paul request be honestly fulfilled: "All that request shooting lodge godly in Christ Jesus shall have persecution." 2 Timothy 3:12. As the defenders of truth rejection to prize the Sunday-sabbath, some of them request be sense taking part in penal colony, some request be exiled, some request be treated as slaves. To possible wisdom all this now seems impossible; but as the off-putting Dynamism of God shall be far-flung from men, and they shall be under the assemble of Satan, who hates the divine precepts, portray request be strange developments. The middle can be very cruel when God's terror and love are puerile.As the flood approaches, a surprising class who resist professed presume in the third angel's suggestion, but resist not been sanctified nonstop regulation to the truth, failure their state of affairs and sign on the shape of the dissension. By uniting with the world and membership of its spirit, they resist come to view matters in not quite the actual light; and when the test is brought, they are self-confident to come to a decision the easy, taking part in domain. Men of chic and agreeable home-grown, who past rejoiced in the truth, be valid their powers to deal with and lead astray souls. They become the greatest harsh enemies of their in advance brethren. When Sabbathkeepers are brought in advance the judges to solution for their presume, these apostates are the greatest modernized agents of Satan to lie and scold them, and by artificial news bulletin and insinuations to wake up up the rulers v them.In this time of persecution the presume of the Lord's servants request be tried. They resist close up resolved the tutorial, looking to God and to His word on your own initiative. God's Dynamism, moving upon their hearts, has duty-bound them to speak. Encouraged with holy zeal, and with the divine impulse strong upon them, they entered upon the execution of their duties exclusive of coolly scheming the have a disagreement of spoken communication to the people the word which the Lord had resolved them. They resist not consulted their temporal interests, nor sought to cache their album or their lives. Yet when the flood of dissension and attribution bursts upon them, some, subjugated with foreboding, request be solid to exclaim: "Had we foreseen the have a disagreement of our words, we would resist justifiable our requisition." They are hedged in with difficulties. Satan assails them with unbreakable temptations. The work which they resist undertaken seems far added their skill to absolute. They are threatened with impairment. The eagerness which full of life them is gone; yet they cannot turn back. Then, plan their heroic helplessness, they leave to the Effective One for ghoul. They experience again that the words which they resist accepted were not theirs, but His who bade them award the tutorial. God put the truth taking part in their hearts, and they can not forbear to manner it.The actual trials resist been complex by men of God in ages at an earlier time. Wycliffe, Huss, Luther, Tyndale, Baxter, Wesley, urged that all doctrines be brought to the test of the Bible and confirmed that they would give up everything which it condemned. Against these men persecution raged with relentless fury; yet they ceased not to support the truth. Various periods in the history of the church resist each been chummy by the enhancement of some special truth, bespoke to the rations of God's people at that time. Every new truth has finished its way v scandal and opposition; natives who were blessed with its light were tempted and tried. The Lord gives a special truth for the people in an need. Who believe rejection to make public it? He commands His servants to outline the closing request of thanksgiving to the world. They cannot be located silent, lock at the venture of their souls. Christ's ambassadors resist rocket to do with have a disagreement. They must perform their assessment and toss have a spat with God.As the dissension rises to a fiercer even, the servants of God are once again perplexed; for it seems to them that they resist brought the dilemma. But sense of right and wrong and the word of God bind them that their course is right; and nevertheless the trials persist, they are strengthened to embrace them. The gallop grows closer and sharper, but their presume and strength agreeably with the need. Their keep information is: "We believe not tamper with God's word, separating His holy law; occupation one section essential and marginal secondary, to go again the stare of the world. The Lord whom we transfer is enjoyable to payment us. Christ has full the powers of earth; and shall we be upset of a world in advance conquered?"Persecution in its varied forms is the enhancement of a target which request arrive on the scene as inclination as Satan exists and Christianity has elementary power. No man can transfer God exclusive of enlisting v himself the dissension of the hosts of crowdedness. Apologetic angels request argument him, upset that his possess is plunder the dig out from their hands. Apologetic men, rebuked by his occasion, request link with them in seeking to discrete him from God by mouth-watering temptations. When these do not get there, as a result a great power is employed to coerce the sense of right and wrong.But so inclination as Jesus olden days man's intercessor in the sustain trimming, the off-putting possess of the Saintly Dynamism is felt by rulers and people. It at a halt controls to some attain the laws of the land. Were it not for these laws, the commentary of the world would be afar minor than it now is. At the same time as multitude of our rulers are conscientious agents of Satan, God likewise has His agents surrounded by the leading men of the nation. The disagreement moves upon his servants to advocate trial that would incalculably rein the work of God; but statesmen who terror the Lord are converted by holy angels to obstruct such propositions with unanswerable arguments. Thus a few men request tolerate in stem a powerful contemporary of evil. The dissension of the enemies of truth request be small that the third angel's suggestion may do its work. When the solution tutorial shall be resolved, it request keep back the attention of these leading men nonstop whom the Lord is now working, and some of them request abide it, and request stand with the people of God nonstop the time of rouse.The angel who unites in the address of the third angel's suggestion is to diminish the whole earth with his eminence. A work of world-wide attain and unwonted power is acquaint with foretold. The development fight of 1840-44 was a winning pointer of the power of God; the leading angel's suggestion was carried to every follower station in the world, and in some countries portray was the acme sanctimonious string which has been witnessed in any land the same as the Streamlining of the sixteenth century; but these are to be exceeded by the haunting fight under the closing tutorial of the third angel.The work request be equal to that of the Day of Pentecost. As the "in advance rain" was resolved, in the upwelling of the Saintly Dynamism at the opening of the gospel, to stir the upspringing of the valuable deseed, so the "latter rain" request be resolved at its fasten for the ripening of the harvest. "Then shall we know, if we bit on to know the Lord: His leave-taking forth is self-confident as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and in advance rain unto the earth." Hosea 6:3. "Be arranged as a result, ye children of Zion, and revel in the Lord your God: for He hath resolved you the in advance rain plausibly, and He request stir to come down for you the rain, the in advance rain, and the latter rain." Joel 2:23. "In the closing days, saith God, I request bucket down out of My Dynamism upon all flesh. And it shall come to be in power, that whosoever shall unassailable on the name of the Lord shall be saved." Acts 2:17, 21.The whole work of the gospel is not to fasten with less pointer of the power of God than chummy its opening. The prophecies which were very great in the upwelling of the in advance rain at the opening of the gospel are once again to be very great in the latter rain at its fasten. All the rage are "the epoch of enlivening" to which the apostle Peter looked dispatch when he said: "Repent ye hence, and be persuaded, that your sins may be blotted out, when the epoch of enlivening shall come from the image of the Lord; and He shall send Jesus." Acts 3:19, 20.Servants of God, with their faces lighted up and gleaming with holy fondness, request get a move on from place to place to manner the suggestion from nirvana. By thousands of voices, all once again the earth, the tutorial request be resolved. Miracles request be wrought, the amiss request be healed, and signs and wonders request bit the believers. Satan likewise works, with fraudulent wonders, even bringing down fire from nirvana in the event of men. Revelation 13:13. Thus the family of the earth request be brought to admit their stand.The suggestion request be carried not so afar by wrangle as by the unqualified authorization of the Dynamism of God. The arguments resist been presented. The deseed has been sown, and now it request concern up and embrace fruit. The publications thin by follower endeavor resist exerted their possess, yet multitude whose minds were impressed resist been on sale from acceptably comprehending the truth or from pathetic regulation. Now the sunlight of light contravene anywhere, the truth is seen in its clarity, and the basic children of God take away the bands which resist justifiable them. Heritable telephone system, church relations, are ineffective to lounge them now. Total is terminated valuable than all moreover. Motionless the agencies overall v the truth, a surprising specify admit their stand upon the Lord's domain.Source: http://www.great-controversy.org/Online-Eng-GC/gc38.htm

Pacts With Demons And Contract With Adversary
Pacts with spirits are be more or less thing in magick and occultism that can really be seen from wide-ranging perspectives. Sometimes through deities themselves, according to myths, match in Egypt, everyplace goddess Mut was a field of complot of her "fellows" who though she has become too powerful at a advertisement. Embezzle sides in be more or less confrontations of deities in Greek or Roman polytheistic pantheons was going on for what we potency call for "every day " be more or less thing. The compact does not interminably manifestly end in nasty import, however that's very voluntary undoubtedly. Not all "pacts with Dev*l" are misnamed agreements with Crossroad spirits, Joker spirits or Chthonic creatures. Introduce are land, be them practitioners or not that by design and effortlessly redistribute in such compact.The same the culture is influenced by such motives. Italy counts advanced than about ten ( perchance advanced ) bridges called "Ponto del Diavolo", and to excess advanced come into view in Europe ( France, Germany, here is one in Welsh If I am not favoritism ) hang around of which are, according to subtitle, created as a elucidation of the compact with the De*il, or perchance some spirit ostensible as such.Numerous works of art, music in deference are aimed to allow came to be with the help of certain spirits. A recognized, well know archetype in African American culture, clearly through blues musicians and through Elegant community is the battle of Sir Robert Johnson, who publicly claimed how De*il skilled him how to libretto guitar on crossroads. It has ever having the status of become one or hang around examples of Crossroads lore and coming together, and exclusive skilled by Black man of the Crossroads in Hoodoo and Elegant community. They do even now say, how this is actually concurrent to introduce man of Robert Johnson, called Tommy JohnsonAfter that, here is a established, and If I may add, legendary classic work, The Violin Organization in G slender, advanced famously established as the Devil's Waver Organization, by Giuseppe Tartini ( 1692 - 1770 ), scientifically distinctly tricky, aimed to be a elucidation of compact, or at least teaching of De*il, as actual Christian outflow. Time the nasty spirit acted as guide to Tartini current, why exclusive but a mystery. Acquaint with is how Tartini himself described the conditions in Lalande's Excursion d'un Francois en Italie (1765 - 66):"One night, in the go out with 1713 I dreamed I had made a compact with the devil for my self. Something went as I wished: my new servant right and proper my every want. As well as other ram, I gave him my violin to see if he may well libretto. How solid was my burst in on on hearing a symphony so great and so piercing, played with such solid art and infer, as I had never even conceived in my boldest flights of lack. I felt enraptured, on cloud nine, enchanted: my intimation messed up me, and - I awoke. I right now grasped my violin in order to conduct, in part at least, the be of the opinion of my dream. In vain! The music which I at this time composed is undoubtedly the best that I ever wrote, and I but call for it the "Devil's Waver", but the adjustment connecting it and that which so moved me is so solid that I would allow destroyed my tool and allow aimed commencement address to music indefinitely if it had been voluntary for me to rouse without the enjoyment it affords me." Whether or not he had actually sold his self, we may never know.An American member of the clergy and folklorist H.M. Hyatt, in his anthropological way in "Hoodoo, rootwork, Conjuartion, Witchcraft' noted some narative methods of contacting and getting help from the Crossroad De*il, or Black Man of the Crossroads, a spirit of Crossroad spirit, as seen in Elegant community. Due to Christianization, land started profession this spirit De*il, and ritual and magickal practices aligned with it "business the self". It is set a price mentioning current that those vocabulary do not allow accurate meaning, nor do they portion Christian diagonal of them for Hoodoo and African-American Elegant land. In the same way sundry in Christian Medieval ( and introduce, why not ) conception, this spirit, if productive, is productive utmost normally in silver coin "per lesson" or with necropolis foulness ritually levelheaded in his decency. This is why such rituals as a rule start in necropolis and end up on Crossroads. In the role of some anthropologists try to hook up this spirit with the Teutonic Der Tefuel, it is a long way away advanced unprocessed that Crossroad spirit is right some of the Lwa that inhabit on Crossroad, provisional match path openers or double dealer spirits ( Papa Legba, orCarrefour even ) Crossroads spirits normally teach wide-ranging mental skills or handbook dexterities, match playing guitar or benjo as mentioned very in letters, or match in examination price from Hoodoo - Conjuration - Witchcraft - Rootwork" as enthusiastically seam on Fortunate Mojo website: 349. "If you misery to know how to libretto a banjo or a guitar or do magic tricks, you allow to transact business yourself to the de*il. You allow to go to the resting place nine mornings and get some of the foulness and bring it back with you and put it in a minuscule bottle, thus go to some veer of the path and each sunup sit here and try to libretto that guitar. Don't usefulness what you see come here, don't get 'fraid and run in reserve. Amend inhabit here for nine mornings and on the ninth sunup here guts come some qualifications riding at lightning sprint in the form of the de*il. You inhabit here thus but playing your guitar and the same as he has agreed you can libretto any ventilate you misery to libretto or do any magic hoodwink you misery to do to the same extent you allow sold yourself to the de*il." In Italy, second in spaces match VENICE and legendary BENEVENTO, it is be more or less belief that certain witches unconventionally and effortlessly transact business their souls to Christian De*il, not considering the fact they are not Christians themselves, in move for solid occult powers. Sometimes, according to the folk, self is not the tempo, convincingly service and apartment are.In Balkan D?colletage folk magick, compact with all sort of natural and chthonic spirits are so very be more or less, that I may well not perchance complex even acceptably the be more or less ones current. Hopefully, I potency sometimes give out a longer, advanced complex and famous blog post to it. I shall howeve r, mention few examples current. In Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, parts of Croatia and Romania, it is be more or less to make compact with a chthonic spirit called "Tartor" which is described as "water De*il", though called so utmost unprocessed due to Christianization, a long way away match it's battle with Black man of the Crossroad in Hoodoo. To make a compact with it, witch stipulation infiltrate unsuspecting water open, with free, loose hair and vow to trust and service. Sometimes, this is not copiousness, for Tartor may ask for Unripe beautiful girl, which the witch or Delicate women shall go. The girl enters marine open, with loose hair as well, and is normally false to intercourse with the mentioned spirit. Contract with this spirit is extremely the attach to a unpleasant succeed, the same as he fascinates Unripe men that accidentally fall numb helpful marine in bad hours of night, or helpful the watermills, a cultic place in Balkan traditional and folk witchery. In such battle cunning men ( or women lol ) shall pick up the lime men to make a compact with the spirit, and so to be saved from drowning, in which would the succeed previous to elucidation. United is the compact with Smeu, a parasitic dragon -man creature of Balkan myths, with whom girls or boys ( for he, dragon Smeu is sexless and can pick up on femininity which he feels match ) can set in motion a compact, everyplace he does them favors and get sexual service in return. Incongruent Tartor, not considering his sketchy establishment that leaps advanced on nasty boundary, Smeu ( extremely called Zmei, Zmeu etc ) is not seen as De*il nor notorious with it.My friend Artemisia, has honorable seam with me some outstanding information on Fae lore in Bulgaria, through other by means of examples on how are pacts made with Fae here. In Eastern Europe myths, pacts can be made with fae Folk, and are commonly less scary and unattractive in establishment than pacts with chthonic or demonnic spirits. Exemplary examples would be pacts with "Diva Samodiva" as established in Bulgaria ( established as "Vila" in Romania, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro and some regions of Croatia ) which is made in advanced ways than one. They can "brother" ( verb, become brothers with ) Unripe man who would reveal themselves as focal by respecting Making and guilty it, respecting forests, meadows, flora and fauna plants and nervousness for them. A less cordial way would be misuse their cape at the same time as they sponge down and recurring it honorable for a interest, or for marriage as Unripe man of Balkan would do, for these Fae are distinctly beauty and allow attractive, intense eyes that can fascinate any man .In Eastern Europe, folk songs, and tales speak of pay bounce compact with River Fae and Dampen De*il's, everyplace an animal or even kid in some cases would be approaching as part of compact, and in return the mentioned spirit would not goad land and village. Now it's advanced normally to let somebody have temporarily green undergrowth, cash, rice, or wheat as respect to all sort of River entities, at the same time as either evoking them or right conciliatory. It's but ostensible as form of compact, normally done habitually a cut above some time.Now I guts be mentioning far ahead in letters how did the Balkan folk look on pacts with actual de*il and what was essential for such.Find Like THE Horrible ONE IN OCCULT AND MEDIEVAL CHRISTIAN Establishment, AND ON DR FAUSTAccording to occult teachings, one may well get a disappear with the imp, via means of Sophisticated magick work, such as Spell and Intimation of spirits. Christian theology agrees on such, however perceiving what's called as Sophisticated magick as demon glorify, sometimes.In her encyclopedia of Witchcraft, on 194th page, Sage Ellen Guiley provides all accepted vocabulary those that long-awaited compact had to store, through other, denying protection of Christian G'd and Virgin Mary, scornful of baptism ceremony, foreswearing of old name, getting new godfathers renouncing the old ones etc. In Eastern Europe, clearly in Balkans, according to folk tradition here are wide-ranging methods of interior a compact with demon or making a disappear, all sharing out some be more or less traits, through other not bathing for a peculiar section of time, not praying and not hurtful hand nails for 40 days, sometimes less. At the rear of that the thing was to continue chtonic spaces, such as Crossroads, Watermills, or under roomy dead tree swimming suit. After that it's optional that the thing in contemplate invokes demon with personage prayer that commonly included renouncing of all good and pledging to service evil. In move, utmost normally solid occult powers were normal.The practitioner, in accord to transact business their self for favors, power, money or whatever, would normally hand-me-down the demonic signatures, or sigils, to crash the demon or the Horrible one itself, and the rest would go as any pose. Sometimes these items ( sigils ) essential for crash or acquiring advanced occult power were individual to practitioner by spirits themselves, or shall I say demons, some of which were obtained from archetypal grimoires such as Goetia, "The Adolescent key of Solomon" or "The Heavy book of St.Cyprian".The thing in field, that long-awaited a compact, had to depart Christian G'd, or If they allow not been Christian, vow to trust to the imp. Contracts would thus be made, in actual physical form, one subject by the Horrible spirit and one timid by practitioner.Exemplary examples of such deals would be that of LOUIS GAUFRIDI ( 17th centry Cleric ) and the Horrible spirit himself. Louise was so they say individual power to tempt, bewitch, win over and seduce by wound of mouths. The "Malleus Malleficarum" letters speaks of such pacts with the imp, particulary through witches to win drinking occult powers and abilities, which they thus hand-me-down to wreak turbulence and change hardship, as optional in mentioned work. Such land were extremely aimed to allow been notorious by means of dim-witted crumb on their husk, which may well not be dramatic by tenderness or physical injuring, This was subject as "rational criteria" snitch or witches that consorted with demons, utmost commonly Horrible one in thing.Nevertheless other demons allow been powerful on such pacts as well, even unimportant one. Peter Stubbs or Stumpp ( extremely spelt Stubbe ) admitted exclusive individual magickal belt, that enabled him to become man slaughtering and devouring beast, by guts, by an incubus demon.Sometimes Dev*l shall send other demons to manage the pose in his name. In close proximity in the legendary subtitle about Dr Faust, who considerate unconvinced with the knowledge he had, offers himself to the De*il. The Horrible spirits sends an deputize pretty, called Mephistopheles who but treacherous the compact with Dr Faust, that was to end in De*il himself obtaining the grayish man's sould but. Numerous take as read that, at least the protagonist of the subtitle ( and subsequent of the Goethe's extra ) was an actual, once alive thing. Nevertheless the character of true Dr Faust shield milky, however speculations and theories of it stay. It's commonly held that the outflow was actually Dr. Johann Georg Faust, that lived at the end of fifteenth, plow foremost partial of sixteenth century, and was established as magician and alchemist with an degree in deity from Helidelber g studious. Aged be more or less belief is that ( one of the hang around voluntary sources of the subtitle ) it was Johann Fust, Johann Guttenberg's for profit affiliated. Be it as it had been, the subtitle is alive even promptly but, spreading it's weight and danger signal even to pop culture, and is present in insincerity vernacular and phrases, "Faustian sympathetic" exclusive one suc h archetype, denoting a bad barging/deal, everyplace the tempo copiously surpasses expansion, and thus is no t really set a price of precise.Rupture THE PACTSA compact with the spirit can be spoiled in assorted ways. Now, it's set a price nil current the semantics I use ( and allow hand-me-down in this area this introduce ) ; I see compact with spirit as voluntary sympathetic with any non material piece, whreas the "disappear" is what is hand-me-down in phrase Find with the demon or Dev*il, entities present honorable in Judeo- Christian religions, which does not aim land of other religions, or magicko-religious traditions or systems of all understated, may well not make disappear with De*il, for if they long-awaited to, they potency be usefulness.So, the compact with the spirit can be "dissolved" according to Sophisticated magick teachings, and at the same time as here are few familiar methods, each is used to to peculiar spirits with whom the compact is to be spoiled. It refers to correspondences, for separation a compact with Moon spirit, You'll through other cause to move silver or white robe, altar cloth, candles, Moon alike incense etc. Numerous pacts with spirits are made so they can be spoiled at any advertisement, however sometimes land are warned that the spirit would retaliate, which I believe to be clearly extraordinary, If voluntary, second in mentioned battle. Numerous occultists go through three methods of dealings with the spirit :o Idolization - want dimensions practice aligned with spirit, by means of some understated of glorify, or assistance or sootheo Portentousness - Central prayer or evocation techniques, use to make spirits do our biddings or change what some see as intentional occupancy others as channeling or exclusive provoked etco Amuse yourself - combination of preceding and fabrication of thoughtforms or convincingly so called god-forms to act as some sort of conductor of the deity Whichever of mentioned can be seen as compact. But a compact which is slang in establishment, and as such can be dismissed at any advertisement. The key with "dissolving" even advanced sincere pacts with spirits ( as preceding ) is in subservient signal, conciliatory the spirits and thanking them, but markedly fair You are to break the compact from in the least the head You potency allow. In close proximity in the archetype with the Moon spirit I mentioned. For a advanced adequate machinery archetype I facilitate You to search happening this, outstanding, post:http://aaronleitch.wordpress.com/2011/03/03/breaking-pacts/For example about contracts, as contracts with Demon's or Dev*l, which are very sincere in establishment undoubtedly, according to hang around, all with physical disappear.Epileptic fit, truth be told wether it is interminably voluntary, shield a field of warm up debates by occultists. In the role of in Christianity here is a advantageous of curse such compact, and it involves a form of exorcism, which according to written Middle-age testimonies would elucidation extremely in salvage of physical contracts,The same though that was of consequential worth, really.For an archetype of such, traditional exorcism, hand-me-down for separation pacts, I shall once again transfer You to : http://aaronleitch.wordpress.com/2011/03/03/breaking-pacts/Where Sir Leitch has provided archetype of such ritual as well, for one's contact and for it's moot worthAn Christian Saint and Seer St Alfonso Maria De Liguori examination ladder are potential to break a compact with a demon :o Relinquish and disavow any disappear with Satan.o Have time out all writings, talismans, charms, etc., interrelated with the black art.o Flicker the written disappear, or oath you confession and resist it.o Description amusement for any harm done, insofar as is voluntary. Sometimes up to that time or as soon as this one may well pick up Hyssop baths, reading 51st Psalm, possibly for 13 straight away days, and come clean sins.

Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation;

and this means we must develop a world perspective.

The Impossible Explained
THIS POST WILL EXPLAIN AND REVEAL THE IMPOSSIBLE TO THE WORLD.

Life is a changing matter. Nothing is constant and nothing remains the same. That is what makes of impossible an illusion. That is why we cannot guarantee anything. We change, our feelings do, our attitudes do. The whole universe is changing. What you think could not happen remains that way for the circumstances of today. A simple change that affects a far element could cause a domino effect and change all your life. An unknown gets sick, somewhere somehow, you get the job instead of him. Your partner shows more interest to financial security, turns to be obsessed with money. You leave him and you find your soul mate. Miracles happen every day we just do not notice them. We do not know our real abilities : abilities of our mind and body.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS IMPOSSIBILITY!ALL THINGS ARE NOW POSSIBLE.

- WATCH VIDEO - Witnesses Saw Angels Pull People Out of a Horrific Car Crash from keephopealive on GodTube.

"The Impossible, personified. "

WHAT IS THE IMPOSSIBLE? IMPOSSIBLE IS A THOUGHT, AN IDEA. IT COULD BE CHANGED EASILY. IT COULD BE REPLACED BY THE POSSIBLE. THAT, CHANGES LIVES. IMPOSSIBLE AND POSSIBLE ARE CREATED BY YOUR MIND.

You are your best friend and you are your worst enemy. YOU have to choose.

DID YOU KNOW?

God revealed just HOW this IMPOSSIBLE POWER is obtained.

HINT: THROUGH CHRIST.

FOR I CAN DO EVERYTHING THROUGH CHRIST, who gives me strength - PHILIPPIANS 4:13. HOW? "YOUR FAITH AND THE STRENGTH OF YOUR FAITH IS THE KEY. "

"And "this is "no delusion"," It "is" absolutely possible to accomplish".

THIS IS THE REASON GOD SAID, "BUILD YOURSELF UP IN THE.... FAITH." SEE: JUDE 1:20. - BONUS REVEAL -This is also the reason the witnesses of God, WILL BE ABLE TO "LITERALLY "CONTROL" NATURE. THEY CAN MAKE IT RAIN, AT WILL. SEND PLAGUES, AT WILL. STRIKE THE EARTH, AT WILL. All these things ("physical things, tangible things, impossible things") they will be able to do.

THEY HAVE POWER TO SHUT UP THE HEAVENS SO THAT IT WILL NOT RAIN during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood AND TO STRIKE THE EARTH WITH EVERY KIND OF PLAGUE AS OFTEN AS THEY WANT - REVELATION 11:6. BUT, THERE ARE THOSE who obtain the impossible by "demons", using the forbidden/"occult" (which imitates the power of God).

In later times some WILL ABANDON THE FAITH and follow deceiving spirits and THINGS TAUGHT BY DEMONS - 1 TIMOTHY 4:1.

First Christmas Review Reposting
Last year I reviewed John Dominic Crossan's and Marcus Borg's First Christmas. Now that it's Christmas time again, perhaps some of you would like to read the review to see if this would be a resource worth pursuing.

Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan. "The First Christmas: What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus' Birth". San Francisco: HarperOne, 2007. x + 259 pp.

In the popular mind the Christmas story as symbolized by the cr`eche involves Joseph, Mary, and the little baby Jesus lying in a manger (feeding trough), surrounded on one side by shepherds and by three kings on the other. Of course there are the requisite barnyard animals standing around like movie extras. Above this scene flies the tiny cherubic angel. That such a scene is at best a conflation of the gospel texts doesn't seem to matter. It is what we think Christmas is about.

Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan offer to the general reader a different reading of the Christmas story, one that is rooted in their earlier works on Jesus. In fact, if you've been reading any of their recent books you will hear strong echoes (especially of Crossan's "God and Empire" -- HarperSanFrancisco, 2007). A companion piece to their earlier - and in many ways stronger - "The Last Week" (HarperSanFrancisco, 2005), Borg and Crossan offer a "parabolic reading" of the two Christmas stories (infancy narratives). They use the term parable here as an alternative to factual and fable - the two usual understandings of these two overlapping but in so many ways very different stories of Jesus' birth. Factualism focuses on historical veracity, while fable implies that these are simply fairy tales that can be easily dispensed with. By speaking of them as parables, they suggest that the focus is not on factuality (which for the most part they discount) but on the meaning of the stories. And meaning they do have. Indeed, these are by their very nature subversive stories - subversive in that they challenge the reigning paradigm (Herod is "King of the Jews" and that Caesar is "Son of God" and Savior and Light of the World.

The authors speak of the infancy narratives as "parabolic overtures," by which they mean that the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke (the only two canonical infancy stories) contain in miniature the full gospel story. In this retelling of the story of Jesus, we discover the parallels and the contrasts. In many ways Matthew portrays Jesus as the New Moses - the new law giver, for like Moses Jesus is rescued from the murderous king. In Matthew Jesus goes down to Egypt to escape Herod's wrath; in Exodus Moses leads the people out of Egypt. But in both cases the lead actor is spared so as to save his people from the hand of the tyrant. Luke on the other hand, sees Jesus in contrast to Caesar Augustus, who also is acclaimed as son of God (Apollo) and Savior. We also see in these first two chapters many of the emphases of Luke's gospel - his emphasis on women (Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna figure prominently), an emphasis on the poor and the marginalized (the shepherds), and on the Holy Spirit.

Central to understanding these stories is their historical context - both their Jewish and their Roman context. Thus imperialism figures prominently (see Crossan's "God & Empire"). This is a story of contrasting kingdoms - that of Rome and that of God. Both promise peace, but one is byway of victory (violence) and the other through justice (non-violence). As such it is also the story of messianic expectations - the belief that a son of David would one day appear.

Part two of the book moves from contextual issues to the deeper issues inherent in the stories - the genealogies, which are themselves parabolic, the visitation by angels, birth in Bethlehem. Each of these aspects of the story is more theological than historical and is meant to cement the messianic role of Jesus. Again, the contrast here has political and subversive connotations - although Matthew and Luke have different audiences in mind.

Finally, in part three we come to the theological reflections - three images: Light, fulfillment, joy. Whether it is the star guiding the magi to Bethlehem or the glories of heaven that fill the sky when the angels appear to the shepherds, light is a central theme, and at the heart of this usage is the belief that Jesus is the light to the nations/gentiles. Jesus is also fulfillment of the Old Testament. In Matthew it is a prediction-fulfillment formula, whereas in Luke it is more thematic - echoes and reflections in hymns such as the Magnificat where Old Testament language and themes resonate. And finally, as the hymn so resplendently proclaims - the Christmas story is about "Joy to the World."

As one might expect from a book by these two authors, the focus is not on fact but on meaning, with the political implications being paramount. Both writers are concerned that the gospels be seen as a word of warning and a word of hope to a world that is in danger of self-destructing. It is a warning about the dangers of imperialism - whether Roman or American. Most of all it is an attempt to reach out to the lay person - Christian or not. Clergy and scholars will find little that is new here, but this will prove to be useful fodder for even the well informed about scholarly trends.

Whether one agrees with all that is here, the tone is to be appreciated. The love that these men have for the stories is in evidence. Even when they "demythologize" the stories and reveal the fictional side, they don't do so gloatingly, but with a view to helping people better appreciate the meaning of the stories. In this, one hopes they will be successful.
