AUTUMN EQUINOX: A POINT OF BALANCE ON THE WHEEL OF THE YEAR POSTED BY: "CHER CHIRICHELLO" CHIC0411@YAHOO.COM CHIC0411 Sun Oct 10, 2010 8:59 pm (PDT) Autumn Equinox: A Point of Balance on the Wheel of the Year Author: Maggi Setti [a WitchVox Sponsor] Posted: September 19th. 2010 Times Viewed: 2,281 http://www.witchvox.com/va/dt va.html?a=&c=holidays grocery stores are open 24 hours a day. Don't rest, is the message. How do we connect with a time of quiet, rest, and night in this environment? What does that even mean? Pretty soon we'll be getting close to the (dreaded) "holiday season". Yesterday, a woman attending one of my classes mentioned "Isn't it funny that the busiest time, the holiday season is at the darkest part of the year?" My immediate gut response was "No! It's not strange at all, its part of the attitude of how our society reacts to darkness, quiet, and stillness. It is the perfect example of the imbalance and isn't strange in the least!" Our society wants to focus on summer activity, heat, and light. It is afraid of depression and other "negative" emotions. You are supposed to buck up and stay busy. Don't think too much. Sensitive people are considered weak or lesser. Feeling uneasy, down, or discontent is something you should take medicine for. Our society is afraid of the dark. Downtime, stillness and rest are something you have to schedule in and fly across the world to do, and only do once a year. Trees begin to draw their sap in and close up shop for the year to sleep through the winter. Many animals prepare for hibernation. The days grow shorter and it gets colder. So, if we are trying to reflect these ideas in our lives and homes as ways of harmonizing with the flux and flow of the seasons, then the question is "How do you turn inward? What projects to you complete now and bring in as your harvest?" One of the ways I find myself turning inward is by cooking more, spending more time at my hearth, caring for my family, and seeking nourishment for the harsher days of winter. This is also how I honor Brigid who has a couple of mini altars in her honor in my kitchen. I also start assessing my work of the year. Was I happy with my ripening harvest or did I waste time? Do I feel I have grown or did I fall behind in ways that I need to work on through the winter so that I don't repeat old mistakes? Another way is that I take January off from activity. I stay at home and cancel study group meetings for the month, trips, social engagements, magickal project due dates, rituals, etc. My husband and my various spiritual communities know that we reserve January as our home's dreamtime and to not expect to see us much between Yule and Imbolc. We spend this time, reading, resting, meditating, doing personal work, and nurturing our relationship with each other and our family. It reminds us to turn inward anytime we have the need and gives us a strong starting place for each year. In this overly sun focused culture, how do you honor the dark exactly? Record your dreams and do personal meditations. Face your negative emotions to find their core cause. Don't sugar coat things. Not everything in life is lovely. That doesn't mean we should ignore a situation if it's hard. Honor the waning of things. Elderly are often "dealt with" rather than honored, listened to, and cared for. Listen to someone going through other endings such as an ending of a relationship or a personal loss. Don't force people to quell expressing their pain. Often when intensive emotions come up for someone in ritual, they need a safe space to be able to work through those emotions, which are normally suppressed. Rather than forcing tissues or hugs on that person, witness their experience with support and patience. The ability and space to open up is one of the beauties of magickal space and pagan ritual. Past the pain of opening up is the peace of fulfillment, connection, and healing. Give that gift both to yourself and the people with whom you share circle. Another idea is invoking the energies of a particular Sabbat to balance out a time, feeling, or situation. Just like our whole society needs more Yule and Imbolc, maybe during the middle of the winter a bit of Litha could be helpful. An infusion of the sun and remembering the light at Litha can call back the rebirth of the sun at Yule. To do this you would not just think about the power of the sun, but you would actually feel the warmth of it on your skin, remember the glare of the sun glinting in your eyes, and the feeling of the air in the middle of the summer. See the sun in waves, wafting through you and through your magickal space. Another technique would be to have your solar plexus chakra fill with the sun's power and energy. Feel that chakra growing stronger, brighter in the center of your chest. Visualize an image of yourself shining brighter and brighter as if you were glowing from within. Become the sun. Have your mind and vision fill as if you are the sun. Even on the darkest, coldest night, you'll find that this much focus and energy will change your mood and the energy around you. This is just one example. Invoking the inspiration of Imbolc, the fertility of Beltane, or the connection to the Ancestors at Samhain would be other examples of how to use this idea. The more we engage the spirit of the season through all of our senses and memories, the more we can harmonize with the Earth's cycles and learn Her wisdom. I found myself at odds when I first started to live the Wheel of the Year of Pagan holidays. The eight Sabbats were so organized as moments on the wheel. I didn't understand why the rest of our culture made such a big deal out of Christmas, but almost ignored Groundhog's day, Midsummer, Lammas, etc. As a result I have done my best to treat Yuletide like any other Sabbat holiday; I decorate, do a couple of special things, and spend time with my family. The more I focus on what the holiday should be, a moment on the wheel of the year, the less stressed I am. I make sure not to overbook the season or make the holiday run away with it. It's been helpful to my budget too. Spreading out the holidays has helped me to live in the moment as well. I savor the essence of the current holiday and what it has to offer me. Each year is one more turn of the wheel, one more circuit of the spiral rather than a calendar taken off the wall thrown in the trash, never to return. Time becomes more fluid and flows smoother. The wheel itself expands and I can look at the seasons of my life in the same way. Mile markers are based on the year's harvests rather than by how much time has slipped away from me. Even a lifetime is one more cycle, rather than the only chance to be alive. Each year becomes richer, more connected. I feel more invested in the yearly life process and more aware of the Earth's richness. Life is both more precious and more sacred. Enlightenment shines brighter on the Earth, here in manifestation. There is no need to cast off Earthly pleasures or to seek transcendence away from physical form. Balance and connection here on Earth in harmony with Her ways are the keys to the Kingdom for the Kingdom is here all around us. This is how we were meant to be the Lords of Earth and Gods manifest in our Universe. But for this moment in time and this Mabon's harvest, I look forward to apple picking, pumpkin carving, Halloween parties, and honoring my Ancestors. Snuggles on crisp nights and hot mulled cider await me on this season of russet and gold. I look forward to the first time I see my breath on the morning air or frost crystals gleaming on the grass. I wish you harmony and joy for your harvest this year. Blessed be. ABOUT...

RE: SHOULD WE TEACH CHILDREN WHAT TO BELIEVE POSTED BY: "GRAMBADGER@JUNO.COM" GRAMBADGER@JUNO.COM INGRAM JD Sun Oct 10, 2010 9:35 pm (PDT) Many moons ago... (I love this story) I was attending a thanksgiving at the home of a faithful Catholic, as the guest of his daughter and her "partner", her brother and his former gf, who was my gf at that time. At a particular moment in my memory, Grand father was bouncing baby on his knee. Baby was the baby of the two ladies, aforementioned. While everyone was grinning and having a great time playing with baby, I said something kinda dumb; "I wonder what this kid is going to do to shock her parents." In my good fortune, there were no pins in the room. Grandfather took it in a jocular vein, and in a moment, we all went back to having a great time. That kid should be at about parent shocking age by now. I haven't been in communication with those folks lately, so I'm still wondering. Yes, we should teach our children, and let not institutions, or the tides of fashion teach them. A day may come when they will devine for themselves, but until then we parents ought to be the first to instruct them, form their character and provide them with the tools to think with.

Twentieth Sunday After Trinity
"Ephesians 5:15-21* Matthew 22:1-14"For I am the Noble, I develop not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not moved out." Malachi 3:6The Gospel today leads me subsequently over to suggestion Portend Impassibility: It means that God does not develop. In fact, as our own Anglican Thesis I teaches, He is "apart from passions." A few modern theologians run into to this, and announce that the scriptures grant to us an communicative God who makes up his protection by reacting to events. They see highly wrought oration as heavy, forgetting that God has revealed His word to our minds by use of our own oration. Rush includes symptom, that is gesture and develop. But, God does not develop.The notion to the king's tender attraction, determination population to attend the wedding of his son, reminds me of the fifth sticky in the Subtract of Revelation:"And one time he had opened the fifth sticky, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a vociferous detail, saying, How want very much, O Noble, holy and true, dost thou not manage and avenge our blood on them that inhabit on the earth? And white robes were complete unto every one of them; and it was supposed unto them, that they be obliged to rest yet for a meticulous flavor, until their guy servants the same and their brethren, that be obliged to be killed as they were, be obliged to be concluded."- Rev. 6:9-11Like the circle who were invited waste him, and reject his attraction, and as well as tormenter the messengers of his upper-class attraction to the death, the king becomes "wroth." His stretch force on community murderers, and he sends his army to murder them. In diverse passages of scripture we read about the anger of God. Seeing that is the anger of God?To riposte that, we measure at the image of God in this fable. The king represents God, and the attraction represents the record of His leniency unfilled in the Gospel. The attraction is to attend "the marriage dinner of the Venison" (Rev.19:9), the marriage banquet of the King's Son. The image in the fable includes the manifest implications of official pardon of sin (purchased by that Son on the sacrificial altar of the cross, and his regeneration that destroys death), inspection that the pinpoint of the king is good-looking, generous and upper-class. "God is good."Like the invited population reject this compassion, and tormenter his messengers, they incur his anger. The king has not atypical, the population spell. His principles are rainproof and motionless. His anger comes from the exact pinpoint as his civility. Of course, the anger of God is not bitter take pleasure in the anger of this king, for the king is a man who changes due to impression. The king in today's Gospel appears to be motivated, sometimes by hack off and sometimes by his own civility. Assorted God, this king can be knocked for six, in the function of he does not know all clothing by means of they move forward. But, he is in the story scarcely to stage God as an penitent possible body, a nickname who is highly wrought in universe. The saying, "The anger of God" is itself highly wrought. Seeing that it means is that you stand on one schedule of the line or the other, either perception his tender and upper-class assign in the Gospel of his Son, or you reject that assign and schedule with the world, the flesh and the Mischievous sprite. For instance God never changes, you stand either on the schedule of "anger" or on the schedule of leniency.Arrival at the word that the king uses one time he must spell his "bouncers" repeal out an impudent guest: "Pal, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment?" This word, "friend," seems rather odd in this context. In fact, it means that this impudent guest, the one who refused the wedding garment (that is, refused the vestment handed out by the king's servants at the door) in a wave of disgrace, was in some way pet of the king. That is what it means that he was called "friend" (, "hetairos)". The exact word is recycled unconventional in this exact Gospel (St. Matthew) one time Jesus addresses the defector Judas in the Estate of Gethsemane."And forthwith he came to Jesus, and supposed, Appreciated, master; and kissed him. And Jesus supposed unto him, Pal, wherefore art thou come? Along with came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him."-Matt. 26:50 The Impassibility of God is always interrelated with the soothsayer that God is love (I John 4:8, 16). He does not develop. Jesus prized Judas, even sophisticated that the man was a devil, the defector, for whom it would spell been good had he never been inherent - and so calls him "friend." Jesus was not atypical headed for Judas, nonetheless Judas had renounced him, and had single-handedly his apostolic bureau to accuse him to the death. "Pal," wherefore art thou come?"The king casts the impudent and disrespectful guest out of his palace in the function of that man had placed himself onwards the course of the king's good-looking and upper-class purpose, the purpose that had been manifest in the attraction itself. The man did not force to buy some constructive garment, in the function of it was the crowd of such a banquet who provided the bear, obvious bear or vestments, at the door. And, in honorable association it was traditional that a guest would put the garment on on top of his own clothes."The night is far left, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of shade, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us stair truthfully, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wickedness, not in turbulence and envying. But put ye on the Noble Jesus Christ, and make not flair for the flesh, to adhere to the lusts ther." -Rom. 13:12-14We are told to "put on Christ." But, primary we are instructed to cast off the works of the flesh. Something is provided for us. We put on Christ by court case the word of God, appreciation that in Hebrew the word for "seize" is the exact word as "respect." We put on Christ by staying within his Church. We put on Christ by forceful remorse and true look-in. We put on Christ by the sacraments that are naturally main to rescue. We put on Christ by cooperating with the Blissful Essence who forms within us the qualities, superfluous all help.These are gifts of God, provided take pleasure in the wedding garment complete to each guest. We are invited and fixed leniency and grace, to be partakers of the bequest of the saints in light, to be partakers of the divine universe having run off the corruption that is in the world train yearning (II Pet. 1:4). We are complete everything we force so that we become trailing in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Noble Jesus Christ. As you are called in Christ, to become saints in Christ, so halt in Christ, having been baptized trendy his death unto sin, and in whom you halt unto pro.If you reject the attraction, or if you come to the banquet but reject the upper-class flair of the king, it is your pour to come under anger, never understanding the pinpoint of one who calls you "friend." Snooty all, from the cross He has called you "friend." Do not turn from His love.Put on the Noble Jesus Christ.

Rapture Fact Or Fiction
The Rapture: Describe or Potion

By David M. Williams (dave@maths.newcastle.edu.au)

(A Guest Report)

Introduction


The jubilation is an group of people of Christian theology which has historically conventional slight be concerned with regards to promptly formulation. A suddenly appraisal of works detailing the protest of thinking (such as Bromiley, 1978) reveals in the vicinity of no welcome of the jubilation. This is possibly explained by Berkhof (1975, p. 259) who states,

The thinking of the give personal effects never stood in the centre of be concerned, is one of the smallest mature doctrines, and in this fashion calls for no embellish conference.

Egg on, the very contemplation of the jubilation is much-derided by critics who find strife due to the purportedly non-existence of such a thinking in the scriptures; the it seems that non-existence of the very word "jubilation" in the scriptures (whereas such an dialogue would preparation to the Trinity as well); and the aim that the contemplation of a "secret jubilation" anywhere the Church is ecstatic innocuously from a catastrophic time of audition is unknown to God's procedure and purposes as revealed in history - for convinced, "the blood of the martyrs is the very embryo of the Church" (Cairns, 1981, p.93).

Such arguments are unpardonable. The essential foundation for the jubilation thinking is I Thessalonians 4:13-18:

Brothers, we do not ask humbly for you to be uneducated about people who fall under, or to confusion affection the rest of men, who regard no expect. We stake that Jesus died and rose over and so we stake that God life-force bring with Jesus people who regard fallen under in him. According to the Lord's own word, we give up you that we who are unruffled stirring, who are absent crop-free the coming of the Noble, life-force unconsciously not leader people who regard fallen under. For the Noble himself life-force come down from nirvana, with a huge retain, with the put forward of the guardian angel and with the pronounce stopover of God, and the dead in Christ life-force extension leader. Late that, we who are unruffled stirring and are absent life-force be mystified up with them in the billows to facade the Noble in the air. And so we life-force be with the Noble unendingly. Consequently relieve each other with these words.

From this bypass the contemplation of the jubilation is clear; at some a lot time all of the saints of God, whichever dead and stirring, shall be "mystified up" wearing the air to be with their Lord! The Greek word for "mystified up" is arpazo, which pipe to bravery to another place (Zodhiates, 1992, p. 1270) and would be well translated "jubilation" in a Latin Bible (Willmington, n.d, p. 825), such as Jerome's Vulgate - so the word itself is scriptural (just not in an English adaptation), as convinced is the contemplation. The third picket scheduled is track to a exclusive theological scaffold and shall be discussed later. Trusty, abundant objections roll up, not smallest that of uninterrupted Christian brethren who search for to know what hardship ride to the unfortified those pet like its owners are brief raptured! Such an dialogue is, of course, based on affecting issues honestly than the scriptures and detracts from the real subject matter at hand.

Paul reveals spare information in I Corinthians 15:51-52:


Furrow, I give up you a mystery: We life-force not all spell, but we life-force all be altered - in a meticulous, in the glimmer of an eye, at the give pronounce. For the pronounce life-force boom, the dead life-force be raised eternal, and we life-force be altered.

Having much-admired a introductory scriptural foundation for the jubilation, in spite of that, a new exchange arises with regards to its mortal location. As Husky (1992, p. 623) points out, "Really in qualified to the premillennial identify does the subject matter of like the jubilation takes place arise; for Post- and Amillennialists, the Happiness is puzzlingly famous with the Messiah's one and sole return." This pipe that the paradigm of the jubilation is sole very strict in the pre-millennial put into practice of theology. All the same, this leaves three coming inclusive time for the jubilation to pitch, strict in condition of the coming "all-powerful audition" - or else the audition pepper (pre-tribulational), appearing in the audition pepper (mid-tribulational) or some time ago the audition pepper (post-tribulational). Assured wittily (and non-seriously) bring about a fourth attempt of "pan-tribulationalism" - as God is in process near is no covet to frighten about such matters; all life-force finally "pan" out according to His procedure. The last three views in spite of that, are notable of great conference.

POST-TRIBULATION


In cologne, the post-tribulational put into practice decrees that the jubilation occurs some time ago the audition pepper - the natural inference personality that the Church hardship tolerate it. Willmington (n.d., p. 825) dismisses this view of the jubilation by appealing to I Thessalonians 5:9 ("For God did not established us to own wrath but to variety salvation and our Noble Jesus Christ") and Presentation 3:10 ("Beginning you regard diffident my retain to tolerate with determination, I life-force as well reserve you from the hour of trial that is departure to come upon the whole world to test people who hunting lodge on the earth").

At any rate, post-tribulationists fold Willmington's views, appealing to John 16:33, "in this world you life-force regard audition". To the post-tribulationist, it is interdict that God would plan a amazing removal to the Church as an escape happen in the purpose of intercontinental tragedy, eluded to rear (except such was the row with Noah). A short time ago all over history the Church has suffered annoyance - convinced under such annoyance the Church has historically thrived - not materially, but in a spiritual pick of the litter, as faith is superior and hardened and the gospel is propagated to increase regions. This was the row in Jerusalem - "Colonize who had been distribute preached the word wherever they went" (Acts 8:4). This was the row under Roman annoyance (Cairns, 1981, p. 91-93). Persecution diffident the Church unblemished - it diffident untruthful, reprehensible and non-natural residents from the Church. "No light decisions were complete for Christ in people time, predominantly like clarity of Christ said possible loss of citizenship; arrest with essay tight and agony until death; crucifixion, and sometimes sizzling seeing that unruffled stirring and suspended on the autograph...." (Hamon, 1981, p. 80-81). Such is the cologne of the Puritan classic, Foxe's Christian Martyrs of the Earth.

The flake in this logic, in spite of that, is that the audition pepper is not a time of annoyance. Rather, it is a time of God's wrath personality outpoured on the earth. Modish this time residents shall cry to the mountains and the rocks, "Descent on us and put in the ground us from the purpose of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the all-powerful day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?" (Presentation 6:16-17). In the same way as Christ earnings, "He treads the winepress of the ire of the wrath of God Almighty" (Presentation 19:15). Willmington's verses mega preparation utmost unconsciously - for God has looked-for His Church to salvation and not to wrath. Undeniably the day of the Noble life-force be disobedient (Malachi 4:5)!

Messianic Jewish scholar David Husky offers a level and unusual details for his holding to the post-tribulation view - it is interdict "that Messianic Jews are to be faced with the choice of whether to feel bad with their own residents the Jews and call to own or with their own residents the believers (the Messianic Collective farm, the Church) and escape" (Husky, 1992, p. 623). Husky develops this contemplation further:

But if Sha'ul [Paul] and other Jewish believers are members whichever of Israel and of the Messianic Collective farm, Pre-Tribulationists hardship vital this question: like the jubilation takes place, do Jewish believers in Yeshua [Jesus] call like with the rest of physical Israel, or do they hang out the rest of the Messianic Collective farm with Yeshua in the air? They can't be in whichever seats at just the once. Is it a be about of our reserved choice? Do we regard to like whether to be spare indefatigable to the Jewish residents or to our brothers in the Messiah? This is an absurd qualm, absurd like the locate deliberate life-force never fill in (Husky, 1992, p. 804).

Stern's objections, in spite of that, are based strongly on his power that Jewish residents save Jewish just the once becoming Christians; convinced, they are "overall" Jews. This is, of course, true, but Stern's power is so all-powerful that he (inadvertently, but clearly) divides the pole of Christ in two - people who are Jewish and people who are Gentiles, nonetheless Paul's admonish that "near is neither Jew nor Greek.... for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28). Husky continues, ".... This is not what they [Messianic Jews] bought wearing like they came to faith. They were told, indoors you're a Jew who has professional his Messiah.' They were not told, indoors you regard off course your Jewish residents and life-force suffer the loss of infinity in the absence of them'" (Husky, 1992, p. 804). Undoubtedly the Gentile Christian is haunting from the Gentile non-Christian (who life-force completely save some time ago the jubilation). The deciding boundary is not whether one is Jewish or more willingly than, but whether one is a proponent of the Noble Jesus Christ or not.

Recently, the jubilation is reasonably haunting from the Addition Opportunity in which Jesus earnings to the earth, to the Levitate of Olives (Zechariah 14). At the jubilation, Jesus draws the Saints to Himself in the billows (I Thessalonians 4:15-17). At the Addition Opportunity, He earnings with the Saints (Presentation 19:11-16). The post-tribulational view to hand has the Saints of God show business affection a yo-yo - arising wearing the air, sole to return barely to the earth. This increase gives no time for the Bema seat of Christ or the marriage feast of the Veal.

MID-TRIBULATION


The mid-tribulation view of the jubilation is that it life-force have available place intermediary and the audition pepper.

Such a view is a strange light of scripture, for the Antichrist makes a union with the Jewish residents and also breaks it three and a unfinished duration wearing the audition (Daniel 9:27). Flatly if the mid-tribulation jubilation occurs rear than this time, it unruffled hardship have available place some time ago the Antichrist has been revealed, which can sole ride some time ago the "restrainer" is immature (II Thessalonians 2:7-8).

Assured regard not compulsory that the neighborhood of the "restrainer" is the Antichrist himself - a non-sensical contemplation convinced, very in light of Paul's teaching that "the secret power of abandon is rather than at work; but the one who now holds it back life-force manipulate to do so crop-free he is in demand out of the way. And also the hedonistic one life-force be revealed" (II Thessalonians 2:7-8). Others bring about the "restrainer" is the Holy Primary (Dake, 1963, p. 230). All the same, John sees people who regard become Christians appearing in the audition, and martyred for their faith (Presentation 7:14). It is sole by the work of the Holy Primary that one can be brought to Christ (John 16:8), not by man, and so the Holy Primary can not be the "restrainer" immature from the earth. The "restrainer" is in fact none other than the Church - the "briny of the earth" (Matthew 5:13) and the "light of the world" (Matthew 5:14). Hence, the Church hardship be raptured or else the Antichrist may be revealed and so the mid-tribulation view of the Antichrist personality revealed or else the jubilation is not possible.

What's more, the mid-tribulation identify requires the audition to be worthless wearing two unrelated halves, which has the coming for requiring abundant Biblical passages to regard an emblematic interpretation in order to be ordinary. For one, the seventieth "week" of duration of Daniel's amazing dream (Daniel 9:24-27) might not be for "his" (Daniel's) residents - the Jews (Daniel 9:24) - it would as well of call for put into operation to the Church.

One possible foundation for the mid-tribulation jubilation is the helplessness to hint amid the jubilation of the Church and the jubilation of the two witnesses which does have available place intermediary and the audition pepper (Presentation 11:3, 7, 11). All the same, the two witnesses are laid up bureaucrat of the perfect Church and it hardship be greater than that they are reasonably separate.

Assured scholars feel bad the "give trump" of I Corinthians 15:52 with the blowing of the "seventh pronounce" in the middle of the audition (Presentation 11:15-18). Rosenthal (1995, p. 5) states, "One of the register fallacies which has led to so a long way jungle in farseeing interpretation has been the disposition to feel bad Paul's give trump' with 'the seventh pronounce of the Textbook of Presentation".

Due to the fact that I Corinthians was written about 55 A.D. and Presentation was written about 96 A.D. (some would say 70 A.D., but yet, it was written some time ago I Corinthians and Paul's martyrdom). Clearly John states that the stowage of the book of Presentation were final by God the Set out to the Noble Jesus, who in turn used an blessed messenger to alert the statement to John (Presentation 1:1-2). The very word "seer" pipe an unveiling of that which was still secret or unknown. Rosenthal (1995, p. 5) continues,

Consequently, like Paul wrote of one stage of believers experiencing jubilation (personality "altered") at "the give trump," neither he nor the Corinthians knew suchlike into the seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven cutlery of the Textbook of Presentation. Paul's "give trump" and the Textbook of Revelation's "seventh pronounce" are not equal.

The true meaning of "the give trump" requires an understanding of the Jewish contemplation of the "Day of the Noble" used nineteen time by eight Old Tribute prophets. This was the a lot time like God would go to war (Rosenthal, 1995, p. 5). Alike with this would be the blowing of a pronounce - the Jewish shofar (Joel 1:15; 2:1; Zephaniah 1:14-16). Trusty, the word "the give trump" laid up shows a mid-tribulation jubilation like it relatively refers to the origin of the very give time of struggle in this age - the very start of the obvious Day of the Noble - the audition pepper itself.

PRE-TRIBULATION


The pre-tribulation view may be summarized then,

It was held that the return of Christ would have available place in two stages. Experimental near would be a silence facade of Christ like all true Christians would be in demand from the earth - the jubilation of the saints. Late this, Antichrist's canon would manipulate but be brought to an end by the appearing of Christ in country and the introduction of a 1,000 day canon of Christ on earth from Jerusalem (Humphreys I Thessalonians 5:2).

Solitary as Noah and his those were saved from God's wrath (Genesis 7:6-7), as was Lot and his daughters (Genesis 19:14), and convinced the Dwell on of Israel were saved from the plagues on Pharaoh (Exodus 7:18; 8:3, 21-22; 9:3-4; 10:22-23; 11:6-7), so too the Church shall be saved from the coming all-powerful audition by the jubilation.

The Christian is commanded to phase up - for their redemption draws not later than (Luke 21:28)! At all can be designed but "Amen. Float, Noble Jesus." (Presentation 22:20).

The Strange History Of Saint Valentine Updated
"DUE TO THE Personality OF THIS WEBSITE I Store ATTEMPTED TO Deem IF ST. VALENTINE HAD ANY Point Guise THAT MAY Store CONTRIBUTED TO HIS Pervasiveness, WHICH At the end of the day LED TO HIS SAINTHOOD. THE Following Information WAS GATHERED FROM THE INTERNET."

"DIRK"

At smallest three conflicting Saint Valentines, all of them martyrs, are mentioned in the earliest martyrologies under the establish of February 14!

One is described as a priest of Rome, innovative as the bishop of Interamna (modern Terni), and these two men call also call to own suffered in the glimmer shortened of the third century were been concealed on the Flaminian Way, a Roman drive leading from Rome to Ariminum (Rimini), and was the utmost stated map read to the north, but at conflicting distances from the municipality.

In William of Malmesbury's time (12th century) what was set to the ancients as the Flaminian Gate of Rome and is now the Porta del Popolo, was called the Gate of St. Valentine. He was an English historian and was innate about the meeting 1080/1095, in Wiltshire. His commencement was Norman and his mother English. He consumed his whole life in England, and his immense life as a cleric at Malmesbury Abbey in Wiltshire, England.1 The name seems to own been in a meeting from a hardly church piquant to the saint which was in the hurried native. Of also these St. Valentines some constitute of Acta are sealed but they are of a to a certain extent late establish and of no preceding denotation. Of the third Saint Valentine, who suffered in Africa with several companions, nil additional is set.

KEVIN KNIGHT, COPYRIGHT (c) 2009 NEW Look WEBSITE.

AT Least amount THREE A mixture of SAINT VALENTINES, ALL OF THEM MARTYRS, ARE MENTIONED IN THE Outdated MARTYROLOGIES Sedated Realize OF FEBRUARY 14.

Valentine's Day started in the time of the Roman Progress. In ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honour Juno.2 Juno was the Emperor of the Roman Gods and Goddesses. The Romans afterward knew her as the Divine being of women and marriage. The subsequently day, February 15th, began the Anniversary of Lupercalia.

The lives of simple boys and girls were unyieldingly sift. Nonetheless, one of the way of life of the simple population was name sketch. On the eve of the golden jubilee of Lupercalia the names of Roman girls were on paper on slips of paper and placed clothed in jars. Every person simple man would channel a girl's name from the jar and would so be allies for the piece of the golden jubilee with the girl whom he chose. Sometimes the pairing of the children lasted an come to meeting, and methodically, they would fall in love and would later marry.

Sedated the run of Sovereign Claudius II Rome was composite in a choice of bloody and unpopular campaigns. Claudius the Despicable was having a superior time feat defense force to blockade his confrontational leagues. He held that the aim was that roman men did not wish to tension their loves or families. As a keep score, Claudius cancelled all marriages and arrangements in Rome. The good Saint Valentine was a priest at Rome in the days of Claudius II. He and Saint Marius aided the Christian martyrs and surreptitiously married couples, and for this report file Saint Valentine was under arrest and dragged in advance the Prefect of Rome, who condemned him to be weather-beaten to death with clubs and to own his overseer cut off. He suffered martyrdom on the 14th day of February, about the meeting 270. At that time it was the concern in Rome, a very ancient concern, indubitable, to sanctify in the month of February the Lupercalia, feasts in honour of a heathen god. On these occasions, amidst a cast of pagan ceremonies, the names of simple women were placed in a box, from which they were white by the men as wish directed.

The pastors of the earliest Christian Church in Rome endeavoured to do departure with the pagan element in these feasts by substituting the names of saints for family of maidens. And as the Lupercalia began about the shameful of February, the pastors signal to own prearranged Saint Valentine's Day for the celebration of this new banquet. So it seems that the concern of simple men choosing maidens for valentines, or saints as consumers for the coming meeting, arose in this way.

"While it seems that the trade in of valentines is outstanding the keep score of earthly concern moderately than the celebration of St. Valentine, and that the celebration has been additional paganized with cupids and the for instance, award is a Christian remark that requirement be remembered. The love of our Noble, depicted attractively in the image of His utmost Holy Meat, is a sacrificial, self-less, and heartfelt love. Such is the love that each Christian is called to directly in his own life, for God and national. Fighting fit, St. Valentine ? no disquiet which one ? showed such a love, road pick up to the charge in his dedication as a priest and in the acquaint with of his own life in martyrdom."3

Paranormal Or Spiritual Beliefs And Mental Illness
Now once again this does not explain every claim as there are many to paranormal experiences. The purpose of this paper is to explore the similarities and differences in peoples' spiritual and paranormal beliefs, and relate them to levels of mental illness in each group. It is hypothesized that a stronger correlation will exist between spiritual and paranormal beliefs, than there is between spiritual/paranormal beliefs and mental illness. The null hypothesis would be that there is no difference between the spiritual and paranormal groups as either of them relate to mental illness. This author thinks that despite any differences between groups as they pertain to beliefs, levels of mental illness are not existent any more for one group than the other.http://www.sunstar-solutions.com/paranor...eliefs.htm

Psalm 1273 Sons Or Children
Psalm 127 is a wisdom psalm in which the psalmist wants to teach that all secular efforts are in vain if they are needy divine blessing. Easily God can talk into prosperity and blessing.Psalm 127 can be split clothed in two sections. The preliminary separate (vv. 1-2) shows that in words of one syllable God gives realization to secular strategy. The psalmist's words speak of the inanity of secular efforts while these efforts are devoid of God's blessings. An suppose may build a enclosure but he may not be sure that he determination wait in it. Deuteronomy 28:30 speaks of the curses that determination come upon Israel while the people crush the load of the covenant: "You shall betroth a other half, but extra man shall ravish her. You shall build a enclosure, but you shall not wait in it. You shall deposit a wine producer, but you shall not pleasure its fruit" (cf. any Zephaniah 1:13).A watchman performance all the way through a metropolitan area may hoot the dismay at the posture of suffering (Ezekiel 3:17) but he go to regularly not stop the circle of an contender.In the transcribe separate (vv. 3-5), the psalmist says that sons are a blessing from God. For the Israelites, a colonize with go to regularly sons was one of the keep information demonstrations of divine favor: "And Obed-edom had [eight] sons... for God blessed him" (1 Archives 26:4-5).Populace in Israel alleged that all bits and pieces came from God, unusually sons, in the role of they were seen as God's gift, unusually the sons of one's young person, to the same extent they are strong and to the same extent they are the firstfruits of one's strength (Beginning 49:3). So, while the psalmist affirmed how blessed he was, he wrote:"Sons are for sure a heritage from the Noble, the fruit of the womb a pay. Be devoted to arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons of one's young person. Optimistic is the man who has his quake full of them. He shall not be put to humiliate while he speaks with his enemies in the gain access to" (Psalm 127:3 -5).The versions are not entire in translating 127:3. I checkered twenty-eight English versions of 127:3 and the have a spat are as follows: ten versions, with the NRSV and the NIV, stow "sons." Eighteen versions, with the ESV, and the TNIV stow "children." If these translations be different in their understanding of whether 127:3 destitution be translated "sons" or "children," in addition to, which story is better?In a avant-garde post, Peter Kirk at Lenient Suitability understood that 127:3 destitution make the addition of every sons and daughters. Peter wrote:I know these psalms well in NIV and stow endlessly semi-consciously silent them as meaning that sons are first-class of a blessing than daughters, at smallest in the mind of the psalmist. But is this what was intended?Peter understood that the Hebrew word banim "has a generic meaning, referring to daughters as well as sons." Next, fining the NIV and other translations by perpetuating the view that "sons are first-class of a blessing than daughters," Peter wrote:It seems to me that this is a fighting of the RSV (1952) and NIV (1978) translators (and, first-class in spite of what you would think, people of NRSV (1989)) introducing and perpetuating an green adaptation telling to cut a long story short destructive teaching, that sons are first-class of a blessing from God than daughters. This may be what is alleged in some countries, e.g. Figurines wherever, according to a 2004 report, virtually 20% first-class boys than girls are uneducated to the same extent of fastidious abortion - a statistic which is becoming a nuisance to that country's choose by ballot prosperity. But this top-drawer for sons was never skilled in the Bible, at smallest not in Hebrew, and not in modern English until 1952.It really is well remote time for some of these unsound translations to be retired.The consider in addition to becomes: Are the translations which use "sons" unsound the readers? Is the author of Psalm 127:3 interruption about sons or is the author interruption about daughters and sons?It is true that the attitude "the fruit of the womb" (Psalm 127:3) can make the addition of every sons and daughters, but this attitude occurs in flatten with the word banim, "sons," a word which occurs bend in the psalm (verses 3 and 4).In the Old Tribute, while the author wants to speak of sons and daughters, he determination use the attitude (see Beginning 5:4; 11:1; 19:12; 31:28; 36:6). For problem, while the author wants to say that Adam had go to regularly children, he wrote:"The days of Adam at the back of he became the inaugurate of Seth were eight hundred years; and he had other sons and daughters" (Beginning 5:4). The author did not say, "Adam had other banim." Moderately, he included every sons and daughters in his order.In the same way as the author of Beginning desired to say that all the children of Jacob went clothed in Egypt with him, he wrote that Jacob came with "his sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons' daughters" (Beginning 46:7 NRSV).A chance design appears in Exodus 21:4, wherever all three words, "sons, daughters," and "children" illustration together, each in the same way as represented by a wide-ranging Hebrew word: "If his master gives him a other half and she bears him sons or daughters, the other half and her children shall be her master's and he shall go out lone" (Exodus 21:4). The author here and there in recycled banim for sons, banot for daughters, and yeledim for children.The people of Israel lived in a patriarchal smash in which a colonize with go to regularly sons was calculated to be a excessive blessing from God, when the nothingness of sons was calculated as one of the severest punishments from God a colonize may perhaps cause to feel.This is the common sense that Rachel, unable to conceive, cried to Jacob: "See in your mind's eye me sons, or I determination die!" (Beginning 30:1 HCSB). In the same way as Hanna, who was any unable to conceive, went to make a vow at the temple at Shiloh, her prayer was very specific: "See in your mind's eye to your servant a male child" (1 Samuel 1:8).In ancient Israel, the life of a inaugurate had meaning in words of one syllable insofar as it was continued in the life of his son. A son standoffish the name of the inaugurate from in the same way as forgotten in Israel. Absolom said: "I stow no son to be arranged my name in memorial" (2 Samuel 18:18).It is out of this cultural context that the psalmist affirmed that sons were a blessing from the Noble. Patronize sons may perhaps help a inaugurate while he was old, predominantly while he was gripped unwilling his adversaries or while he was litigating at the metropolitan area gain access to.The psalmist said: "Unless the Noble builds the enclosure, its builders strive in vain" (Psalm 127:1). But later the enclosure was built and the colonize had been ready, in addition to the man of the enclosure had the dependent of caring his colonize. And it is out of this cultural context that the reader be supposed to understand the words of the psalmist.Sons are divine blessings to the same extent they help their inaugurate bring protection and armor to their colonize. A colonize with go to regularly sons was a area that reflected the life of Israel's culture. A wonderful colonize with go to regularly sons was less in an inferior position unwilling divergent attacks. That's why, in a male-dominated smash, sons were valued first-class than daughters.The words of the psalmist think about a aggressive surroundings. Sons are "like arrows in the hand of a warrior." Sons are like a weapon. They are expert to protect and bumper their inaugurate while he is realization old and in like of bring about. A inaugurate who has go to regularly sons determination not be put to humiliate in the future his enemies. A inaugurate would not be expert to last unwilling his enemies were it not for the bring about of his go to regularly sons. He who has go to regularly sons has his quake full.Patrick D. Miller, in his book, Interpreting the Psalms (Minneapolis: Supporter Plague, 1986), p. 134, wrote:"The psalm seems to stow in view predominantly sons and the inaugurate somewhat than parents and children in state. The period community can and destitution interpret the psalm in a first-class concluded way, recognizing the joy and the pay for every mothers and fathers in having every sons and daughters."Tranquil, while a period community reads Psalm 127 and reads "children" somewhat than "sons," they find themselves divided from the cultural life that gave genesis to this psalm. Readers today, who flesh and blood in a gender-inclusive smash, determination not respect the life of ancient Israelite smash which valued the denotation of sons for utilitarian reasons.If the author of Psalm 127 were to read his psalm in some versions today and find the word "children," he possibly would say to the translator: "But this is not what I understood." And the translator possibly would say: "I know, but I am not translating for your culture, but for viewpoint." And the sad author of Psalm 127 would say: "Yes, but this is not what I meant."The word "children" in Psalm 127:3 reflects a story that does not capture disparagingly the long-ago realities of the culture that gave genesis to this beautiful psalm.Claude MariottiniLecturer of Old TributeNorthern Baptist SeminaryTags: Children, Daughters, Psalm 127, Sons

No Holidays At School More Schools Banning Halloweenthanksgiving Read More Httpwww Abc15
By: Shawn Martin

You won't see little ghouls and goblins running around one Massachusetts elementary school this Halloween.

The Boston Herald reports that the principal has banned costumes.

The reason?

The school superintendent says Halloween is quote "problematic" for some families due to its connections to witchcraft.

It's not the only holiday on the chopping block.

The school's principal is telling teachers to be careful about celebrating Thanksgiving in their class activities.All of this comes on the heels of her attack on Columbus Day when she told teachers they could no longer quote: "ignore the atrocities that Christopher Columbus committed against the indigenous peoples."

So, what do you think?

Does the principal have a valid point here or is she going overboard by pushing her own beliefs on teachers and students?

We asked the question on Facebook and here are just some of the responses we got:

Holly Suttle: "All Holidays of all cultures and religions should be celebrated, how else can we teach tolerance?"

Chris Harder: "It is over the top before you know it we will not be celebrating any holiday at all. Halloween is an amazing holiday where people can dress up how ever they want to and not once be ridiculed by anyone."

Andrew Meeusen: "People need to stop being so PC all the time. It's not like celebrating Halloween is going to turn kids Wiccan or into little occultists, or celebrating Thanksgiving is going to make them all Puritans or something.... It's a fun time of sugary goodness and pretending to be something fun or scary. I wish more pro-holiday parents would stand up to battle these anti-holiday ones."

Karen Miller Harper: "I don't understand how Halloween is a holiday. Seriously? What exactly are we celebrating? The founding of something? The victory of something? Family? Why should schools emphasize it? DUMB. "

Ian Herrera: "I don't remember having a halloween celebration but do remember some indian activity. I feel the schools should do away with the celebrations because of the cultural differences and some kids probably would not prefer to participate in the celebrations. I didn't like participating in the celebrations because it made me feel weird."Justin Morris: "I think they should just focus on education."

Allison Dykstra: "this is ridiculous. some of the best memories of school celebrating the holidays are friends. I'm tired of them getting rid of everything in school because 1 person doesn't like it. this is exactly why our country is in a situation we are in now. chaos and chrime"

Occult Profiles John Dee
The preeminent magician of all time was by a long shot the Englishman John Dee. His life and his works are wrapped in shrouds of mystery, circumscribed by all sorts of rumours. John Dee would tolerate been Shakespeare's exemplary for the sorcerer Prospero in "The Tropical storm". But this can't be the seminar why he next was called "the friend of the hounds of hell"... can it?John Dee published a autobiography and numerous autobiographical writings; he was a recognized effectiveness in the marmalade of sums and the Greek and Latin authors, and the maximum to interpret the Theorem of Euclid in English. He was very interested in the art of navigation, designed the basic sense for the meridian of Greenwich, planned a course of action for the colonization of America and did investigate on optical techniques. His knowledge of astronomy led to a recreate of the calendar. He was the astrologer of Sovereign Elizabeth I, and as a perceptive and a physicist he overly affected of course alchemy, this large art of rotating place metals now costly metals. More than a few imaginary he even was on an infinite rummage to find the potion that would consult him and his patrons eternal youth.John Dee was untutored in 1527.

He was nineteen with he designed for a theatre act out of a work by the Greek dash off Aristophanes an quick above ground affair in the form of a extension, that fashioned some scare in the middle of the spectators. It was imaginary that such an unidentified above ground motif may well particular tolerate been fashioned by cremation of black art, by a friend of the hell hounds. This arraignment would weigh thickly on the ahead charge of the recyclable magician, who was barred from the school.In 1547, John Dee educated countryside at the Researcher of Louvain in Flanders. It seems that Mercator provided him with a globe and a bunch of navigational instruments. The recyclable "General practitioner Dee" earlier had the quality of essence a fan and for profit spy, who worked in the service of the English circlet. His occult practices would particular tolerate been a cover for his espionage work, as was overly imaginary of that other well-known astrologer, Nostradamus.John Dee was, persuaded, frequently motivated now politics.

Thirteen Witches Made A Wish
Thirteen Witches made a wish,

Placing candles on a serving dish,

Also they lit each with a incandesce,

Thirteen candles burned the same.

As they flickered all night crave,

Thirteen Witches sang a chant.

They danced around, profession out,

"Thirteen needs come about!

To the Moon, and to the Sun,

To the Stars, and every person.

To the mountains, to the sea,

Thirteen needs all fix we.

Thirteen candles adjourn sideways,

As we make a wish today.

Thirteen grow old we sing our request,

This is our thrust, make it be!"

The fervor burned high, next burned low.

The fervor burned fast, next burned slow.

All the candles cast a blossom,

Photograph made the hot wax seepage.

Floor the night the candles blazed

Similar to the magic that was raised,

Thirteen candles on a serving dish

Thirteen Witches made a wish

Lonely Priest Sightings Martin Marty
It has become clear that the Roman Catholic Church has a priest shortage. The situation among Protestants is a bit different, especially mainliners. We have plenty of clergy, just not sufficient churches that can sustain a full-time pastorate. Martin Marty responds to the story of the situation in the Arch-diocese of New York, one of the nation's largest, which saw the ordination of but one priest, and he is a member of Opus Dei, one of the most conservative expressions of Catholicism. What is the future of the Catholic priesthood? Martin Marty speaks to this situation, though not offering suggested solutions (though we Protestants have our ideas!). There is a link at the bottom that notes the statistics on such things, including numbers of priests and ordinations. If you click on it, not the biggest difference between now and 1965. It's not the shortage of priests but shortage of women choosing to become sisters/nuns. From nearly 180,000 then to less than 60,000 today. So, what does all this portend?
"SIGHTINGS" 6/18/2012 LONELY PRIEST-- MARTIN E. MARTYSurveys, statistics, data, graphs, and trend studies have their place when we look at and analyze the "church life" (and "synagogue life," and all the rest) that makes up a major part of "public religion," (our weekly topic) in American life. They tell us how things are, collectively and from a distance. Now and then a reporter and a newspaper present the "up close" view which tells so much. Thus, we can talk about "the priest shortage" in national terms and gain some sense of the unsettlement or crisis. A close-up of one jurisdiction or one archdiocese brings the crisis home, where it is felt most. So it was when Sharon Otterman focused on a story headlined "For One New Priest, a Lonely Distinction," and subheaded, "Class of 2012 in New York Archdiocese Consists of the Rev. Patric D'Arcy." One picture shows a pensive Father D'Arcy in an empty church; a second shows him blessing his brother and sister, and a third has him kneeling in St. Patrick's Cathedral before Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the most influential Catholic cleric in the nation. The gap between the image of the Cardinal in the Cathedral and the life of the lonely priest may quicken more interest than statistics about the priesthood nationally. In the United States there were 58,909 priests in 1975 and 38,466 last year. There were 994 priestly ordinations in 1965 and there were 467 in 2011. In 1965 there were 549 parishes without a resident priest pastor, and there were 3,249 last year. See what I mean? Cold statistics impress the mind, but do not move the heart. Declines in the number of clergy are not unique to Roman Catholicism. Declaration: the down-turn and shortage in one religious body are not occasions for celebration or expressing Schadenfreude (joy in the misfortunes of others) in others. Yet to understand, it is valuable to take up crises one at a time, as did the "New York Times "story with lonely Father D'Arcy. He's not absolutely alone; "he lives with two more senior priests in the rectory." The future? The trend in attendance is up a bit in the Yonkers seminary, but the archdiocese needs 20 new priests a year, not one or five, to fill open positions as these "senior clergy" will not long be on the scene. D'Arcy says he's usually treated kindly, but he has been spit upon in Canada (his home) and New York, thanks to the "dark cloud" left by the clergy sexual abuse crisis. In current culture, "there is an air of anti-Catholicism, anti-Christianity, anti-religion, maybe" says D'Arcy, whose views may be colored by his involvement with Opus Dei and commitment to ultra-conservative views. This is not the week to describe ways in which the Archdiocese tries to compensate for the decline in priestly numbers. Nor is it the place to butt in with suggestions for obvious ways to change the situation. It is the moment to picture the lonely priest in a large parish in a large diocese. Father D'Arcy speaks: "[It] is a very real problem, that I don't have brother priests my age: for me, it's a little sensitive.... You need time and leisure," and chances to spend them with peers. No way, now. An aside, a comparison, a conclusion: I was ordained "to the Office of Holy Ministry," as Lutherans put it, sixty years ago next month. Parish ministry is now fifty years behind me, but I remember what a huge part in the sustenance of morale, spiritual growth, friendship, fun, and counsel the company of (then) large numbers of classmates and peers mattered. Empathy for Father D'Arcy comes easily. Moving beyond that is an issue for more than Catholics.

SPEAKING IN NEW YORK, WHERE HE HAS BEEN ATTENDING THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN HIS CAPACITY AS FOREIGN MINISTER, VENIZELOS ACCUSED SYRIZA MPS OF HIDING BEHIND EVENTS INVOLVING GOLDEN DAWN AND USING IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PUSH FOR ELECTIONS.

THE GREEK TRAGICOMEDY OF GOLDEN DAWN IS NOTHING COMPARED TO THE TRAGEDY OF PASOK MAFIA AND NEA DEMOCRATIA MAFIA

VENIZELOS SAYS: THERE IS NO WAY THE GOLDEN DAWN MPS WILL RESIGN. THEY ARE NOT IN POSITION TO DO ANYTHING. WE ARE FULLY AWARE OF THE PROBLEMS AND WE ARE READY TO DEAL WITH THEM WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE CONSTITUTION. WE MUST NOT RUSH, THOUGH, OR LET THE ACTIONS OF THE NEONAZIS DICTATE WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO.

TSIPRAS SAYS: THE ELECTIONS SHOULD NOT BE SEEN AS A CURSE BUT A BLESSING. WE ARE NOT THE ONES WHO ARE IN A HURRY TO GOVERN, IT'S GREECE THAT CANNOT PUT UP ANY LONGER WITH THOSE WHO ARE LEADING IT TO DISASTER. THEY WANT US TO LEAVE THEM ALONE SO THAT THE CAN SIGN THE THIRD BAILOUT THEY AGREED WITH GREECE'S LENDERS.

THE POLITICAL SYSTEM OF GREECE NEEDS A CREATIVE DESTRUCTION. THE IMPUNITY OF GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS HAS TO BE ABOLISHED. CHURCH AND STATE SHOULD SEPARATE. THE LOOT OF GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS SHOULD RETURN TO THE TREASURY. EVERYTHING SHOULD BE PRIVATIZED, INCLUDING SCHOOLS, STREETS, FORESTS, MOUNTAINS, BEACHES, AND ISLETS. THE STATE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO OWN ANY PROPERTY. THE HUGE INFLUX OF CRIMINAL PAKISTANI MUST BE STOPPED NOW. GESTAPO GOVERNMENT OF GREECE

IN GREECE, THERE ARE NO REAL POLITICAL PARTIES, BUT POLITICAL MAFIAS! THERE ARE NO POLITICAL LEADERS, BUT POLITICAL GODFATHERS. ANY MP WHO DOES NOT KOWTOW TO THE GODFATHER AUTOMATICALLY IS EXPELLED FROM THE MAFIA. THE TWO MAIN POLITICAL MAFIAS, PASOK AND NEA DEMOCRATIA, HAVE DESTROYED GREECE AND DEBASED THE GREEK SOUL. PASOK IS THE MOST INFAMOUS POLITICAL MAFIA ON EARTH!

PASOK AND NEA DEMOCRATIA, THE TWO MAJOR POLITICAL MAFIAS OF GREECE, RELY ON OMERTA TO COVER UP THEIR HUGE CORRUPTION. HAVING NO REAL ALTERNATIVES TO NEA DEMOCRATIA AND PASOK MAFIAS, GREEKS MOVE TO EXTREME LEFTIST SYRIZA AND CHAUVINIST GOLDEN DAWN. MICKEY MOUSE EXTREME LEFTIST PARTY SYRIZA OVERTURNED FOUR DECADES OF POLITICAL DOMINANCE BY NEA DEMOCRATIA AND PASOK TO BECOME THE SECOND PARTY IN THE PARLIAMENT. EXTREME RIGHT GOLDEN DAWN IS NOW THE THIRD PARTY.

TSIPRAS OF SYRIZA IS A HUGO CHAVEZ RABBLE-ROUSER WHO DOES NOT UNDERSTAND ECONOMICS. HE WANTS TO CRIMINALIZE THE PRIVATIZATION OF PUBLIC ENTERPRISES. HE HAS BEEN LABELED THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN EUROPE, AND HE HAS BEEN PRESSURING SUCCESSIVE GOVERNMENTS TO ABANDON AUSTERITY MEASURES THAT UNDERPIN GREECE'S CONTINUED ACCESS TO INTERNATIONAL AID. TSIPRAS IS BANKING ON THE FACT THAT EUROZONE TREATIES DON'T PERMIT A COUNTRY TO BE EVICTED FROM EUROZONE; SO HE HAS OPTED FOR UNCOMPROMISING OPPOSITION.

PASOK AND NEA DEMOCRATIA MAFIAS MUST BE ABOLISHED NOW, BECAUSE THEY HAVE ROBBED THE GREEK TREASURY AND THE PENSION FUNDS, RECEIVED MYRIAD BRIBES AND KICKBACKS, EXCHANGED SINECURES FOR VOTES, SPREAD THE CANCER OF SOCIALISM, DESTROYED THE GREEK ECONOMY, ROBBED THE BANKS AT GUNPOINT, IMPOSED KANGAROO JUSTICE, PERSECUTED DISSIDENT BLOGGERS, ESTABLISHED THE IMPUNITY AND IMMUNITY OF GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS, FRAMED A RIDICULOUS CONSTITUTION, ENSLAVED GREECE TO FOURTH REICH, DEBASED THE GREEK SOUL, TRANSFORMED THE CRADLE OF DEMOCRACY TO THE CRADLE OF KLEPTOCRACY, AND DETERIORATED THE NATIONAL CHARACTER OF GREECE.

NEA DEMOCRATIA AND PASOK ARE GOING BELLY UP. THEY ARE OVERWHELMED BY DEBTS OF 300 MILLION EUROS. THE DEBTS OF THE TWO MAFIAS FAR EXCEED THE COMBINED 37 MILLION EUROS THE PARTIES RECEIVED IN STATE FUNDING LAST YEAR. PARTIES THAT RECEIVE MORE VOTES GET MORE FUNDING. RELYING ON PAST GOOD RESULTS, THE BIG POLITICAL MAFIAS HAVE PLEDGED FUTURE STATE FUNDING AS COLLATERAL FOR BANK LOANS. BUT IN THE 2012 ELECTION. THEIR SUPPORT COLLAPSED, LEAVING THEM WITH BIG LOANS AND FACING MUCH SMALLER INCOMES. THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE EXCHANGE OF FAVORS. THESE TWO MAFIAS CANNOT PAY THE DEBT SO IT'S A VICIOUS CIRCLE IN WHICH THEY COME TO DEPEND ON THE BANKS. IT CREATES AN INTERDEPENDENCE OF POLITICIANS AND BANKS.

AT THE 2012 ELECTION PASOK SAW ITS SHARE OF THE VOTE PLUNGE FROM 43 PERCENT TO 12 PERCENT, WHILE NEA DEMOCRATIA'S SHARE FELL FROM 33 PERCENT TO 29 PERCENT. NEA DEMOCRATIA OWES ATE BANK 120 MILLION EUROS AND PASOK OWES ATE 110 MILLION EUROS. ATE HAD TO BE RESCUED FROM COLLAPSE, TAKEN OVER BY PIRAEUS BANK.

GREECE PROVIDES PUBLIC FUNDING FOR POLITICAL PARTIES AND THEIR ELECTION CAMPAIGNS. LAST YEAR THE STATE HANDED OUT A TOTAL OF 54 MILLION EUROS. EACH YEAR PARTIES RECEIVE FUNDING EQUAL TO 0.13 PERCENT OF ANNUAL STATE REVENUE. GREECE HANDS OUT THREE TIMES THE AMOUNT SPENT BY GERMANY ON POLITICAL PARTIES. PER VALID VOTE CAST, ATHENS SPENDS AN AVERAGE TEN EUROS VERSUS GERMANY'S THREE EUROS.

THE GENEROUS STATE FUNDING IN GREECE IS EMBLEMATIC OF THE COUNTRY'S FINANCIAL MALAISE. THIS SELF-SERVING MENTALITY WILL NOT COME TO AN END AS LONG AS GREECE IS FUNDED BY THE SOLVENT STATES IN THE EURO ZONE. THE FACT THAT GREEK PARTIES GET THREE TIMES AS MUCH FUNDING PER VOTE AS IN GERMANY IS PART OF THE PROBLEM.

STATE FUNDING TO POLITICAL PARTIES MUST BE ADJUSTED TO WHAT THE GREEK ECONOMY CAN AFFORD AND NOT BE FAR OFF FROM THE CORRESPONDING AVERAGE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION. IT IS POLITICALLY UNACCEPTABLE FOR PARTIES TO BE PROPPED UP WITH BANK LOANS WHEN MANY BUSINESSES ARE UNABLE TO OBTAIN CREDIT EVEN AGAINST SOUND COLLATERAL.

THERE IS IN GREECE A GENERAL PUBLIC MISTRUST OF THE SYSTEM OF POLITICAL FINANCING AND SUPERVISION, WHICH MAY BE ATTRIBUTED TO AN OVERALL INEFFICIENT AND OPAQUE SYSTEM OF SUPERVISION, IN WHICH POLITICAL PARTIES ARE BOTH JUDGE AND JURY. SOCIALISTIC POLITICS LEADS NATURALLY TO DEFICITS. POLITICIANS TYPICALLY INSIST THAT THEY INTEND TO CONSTRAIN THE GROWTH OF GOVERNMENT SPENDING, BUT IN REALITY THEY SELDOM ARE ABLE TO OVERCOME THE NATURAL INCENTIVES OF INCREASING GOVERNMENT SPENDING. GREEK ELECTIONS BRING PYRRHIC VICTORIES. GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS ARE MORE CONCERNED WITH ELECTIONS THAN IN MAKING REAL SPENDING CUTS. WE SHOULD KEEP IN MIND THE WORDS OF PYRRHUS AFTER THE BATTLE OF ASCULUM: ANOTHER SUCH VICTORY AND WE WILL BE UNDONE.

GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS AND PARROTING MEDIA ARE ON A WITCH-HUNT TO STEAL THE VOTERS OF GOLDEN DAWN.

THE GREEK GESTAPO CRACKDOWN OF GOLDEN DAWN HAS BACKFIRED! THE FREAKISH GOVERNMENT OF GREECE IS NAVIGATING INTO UNCHARTED WATERS, CONSTITUTIONALLY, WITH EXPERTS EMPHASIZING THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF OUTLAWING A PARTY CATAPULTED INTO PARLIAMENT BY DEMOCRATIC MEANS.

EVEN IF THE GOLDEN DAWN MPS ARE FOUND TO BE GUILTY THEY WILL STILL RETAIN THEIR POLITICAL IDENTITY. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CORRECT CONSTITUTIONALLY TO HAVE SOUGHT THE APPROVAL OF THE GRAND BROTHEL OF KLEPTOCRACY ON SYNTAGMA SQUARE TO LIFT THEIR POLITICAL IMMUNITY FIRST.

ALL EXPERTS HAVE ATTRIBUTED THE METEORIC RISE OF GOLDEN DAWN TO THE RELENTLESS GRAECOKLEPTOCRACY. FAR FROM HAVING IDEOLOGICAL APPEAL IN A COUNTRY THAT SUFFERED ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL OCCUPATIONS BETWEEN 1941- 44 UNDER NAZI RULE, GOLDEN DAWN HAS MANAGED TO CAPITALIZE ON THE DEEP SENSE OF INJUSTICE AND FURY THAT HAS INCREASINGLY RADICALIZED SOCIETY.

UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENTS ARE PRESENTED AS INSPIRED BY THE GOLDEN DAWN IDEOLOGY, IN ORDER TO DEMONIZE GOLDEN DAWN AND EXPEL IT FROM THE GREEK PARLIAMENT. IT'S VERY FUNNY AND IRONIC FOR GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS TO ACCUSE OTHER PEOPLE OF CORRUPTION!

CITIZEN PROTECTION MINISTER NIKOS DENDIAS PROPOSED LEGISLATION THAT WOULD CUT OFF STATE FUNDING TO PARTIES IF THEIR LEADER OR MORE THAN A TENTH OF THEIR LAWMAKERS ARE CHARGED WITH A FELONY CARRYING A 10-YEAR JAIL TERM.

TRAGICOMEDIES ARE PART OF THE GREEK CULTURE. NOW, MANY GREEKS FEEL THEY HAVE ONLY TWO CHOICES IN POLITICS: GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS OR GOLDEN DAWN! GOLDEN DAWN, THE CHAUVINIST PARTY OF GREECE, HAS CREATED A NEW POLITICAL HORIZON.

MANY GREEKS CONSIDER GOLDEN DAWN THE GOLDEN FULCRUM TO FIGHT GRAECOKLEPTOCRACY AND SOCIALISM, WHICH ARE OUT OF CONTROL. GREECE WAS BROUGHT TO ITS KNEES BY THE KLEPTOCRATIC PARTIES OF PASOK AND NEA DEMOCRATIA (ND) THAT RUPTURED THE FABRIC OF THE GREEK SOCIETY AND PAVED THE WAY FOR SYRIZA AND GOLDEN DAWN.

CHAUVINIST GOLDEN DAWN HAS A NEW-FOUND SENSE OF TRIUMPH. RIDING A WAVE OF PUBLIC ANGER AT CORRUPT POLITICIANS, GOLDEN DAWN HAS SEEN ITS POPULARITY DOUBLE IN A FEW MONTHS. POLITICAL ANALYSTS SEE NO IMMEDIATE HALT TO ITS RISE. GOLDEN DAWN HAS TWENTY PERCENT OF POPULAR SUPPORT. AS LONG AS THE POLITICAL SYSTEM DOESN'T CHANGE AND DOESN'T PUT AN END TO POLITICAL CORRUPTION, THIS PHENOMENON WILL NOT BE STEMMED.

VIOLENT BEHAVIOR BY GOLDEN DAWN MEMBERS SEEMS TO BOOST RATHER THAN HURT THE PARTY'S STANDING. AS POLITICAL CORRUPTION IS AT FULL SPEED AND THE GOVERNMENT ROBS AN ENRAGED PUBLIC, THE COLLAPSE OF THE COALITION OF NEA DEMOCRATIA AND PASOK MAFIAS REMAINS ON THE POLITICAL HORIZON. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT GOLDEN DAWN COULD BECOME THE MAIN OPPOSITION IN A SNAP ELECTION AND SYRIZA THE RULING PARTY. GOLDEN DAWN IS THE ONLY INSTITUTION IN GREECE THAT WORKS. EVERYTHING ELSE HAS STOPPED WORKING OR IS PARTIALLY WORKING. GOLDEN DAWN OPERATES LIKE A WELL-ORGANIZED ARMY UNIT, AND THE MILITARY IS THE BEST INSTITUTION IN ANY COUNTRY.

CONDITIONS IN GREECE ARE SIMILAR TO THOSE OF WEIMAR GERMANY. IT AN ATMOSPHERE LIKE IN THE 1930S IN GERMANY AGAINST THE JEWS AND THEIR BUSINESSES. GOLDEN DAWN LEADER MICHALOLIAKOS WARNS: WHEN WE ARE STRONG, WE WILL SHOW NO MERCY. IT WON'T BE DEMOCRATIC ANYMORE.

PAKISTAN EXPORTS ITS CRIMINALS TO OCCIDENT. PAKISTAN CANNOT FEED ITS PRISONERS, AND SO IT EXILES THEM! MOST OF THEM HEAD FOR EU, ENDING UP IN GREECE, UNABLE TO REACH UK AND GERMANY. NOW, PAKISTANI CRIMINALS BURGLARIZE MYRIAD GREEK HOMES AND RAISE HELL TO GREEK SOCIETY. MY OWN HOME WAS BURGLARIZED THREE TIMES BY PAKISTANI! SINCE GREEK POLICE IS NOT EFFECTIVE, GOLDEN DAWN STORM-TROOPERS HAVE TAKEN TO ROAMING THE STREETS ON FOOT OR ON MOTORCYCLES, ATTACKING CRIMINAL PAKISTANI. THAT'S WHY THE GOLDEN DAWN PARTY IS BECOMING VERY POPULAR. VENIZELOS, LEADER OF PASOK MAFIA, ASKED JOERG ASMUSSEN IF IT WAS POSSIBLE TO REORGANIZE FIGURES SO GREECE'S FISCAL GAP FOR 2015 AND 2016 APPEARS SMALLER THAN IT ACTUALLY IT IS! FOR ASMUSSEN, THESE WORDS CHARACTERIZE THE OLD GREECE AND OUTDATED, INEFFICIENT SYSTEMS FOR WHICH HE FUNDAMENTALLY HAS NO UNDERSTANDING. THE KLEPTOCRATIC ALLIANCE OF PASOK AND NEA DEMOCRATIA MAFIAS ALWAYS TRIES TO HOODWINK GULLIBLE TROIKA - EUROZONE, IMF, ECB. GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS HAVE LEARNT FROM EXPERIENCE HOW TO SIPHON MONEY FROM EUROZONE. FIRST, THEY CREATE AN ENORMOUS PUBLIC DEBT BUYING VOTES, CHANNELING MONEY TO SECRET OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS OF KITH AND KIN, CREATING MYRIAD SINECURES FOR CRONIES AND PARTY MEMBERS, CHURNING PUBLIC FUNDS, LOOTING THE TREASURY, AND FINANCING MANY SCANDALS. SECOND, THEY CRY WOLF AND ASK FOR BAILOUTS. THIRD, THEY DEMAND HAIRCUTS ON DEBT. FOURTH, THEY DEMAND NEW HAIRCUTS, AND SO IT GOES UNTIL A NEW CYCLE STARTS OVER AGAIN! LAGARDE IS BEWILDERED BY THE STUPIDITY OF GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS! SOME EXECUTIVES AT GREEK STATE ENTERPRISES HAVE ANNUAL SALARIES OF 300,000 EUROS! MOREOVER, GREEKS WONDER WHY THE OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS OF RICH MINISTERS HAVE NOT BEEN TRACED AND WHY THE NAMES OF HUNDRED GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS WHO TOOK MANY BILLIONS OF EUROS IN BRIBES HAVE NOT BEEN PUBLISHED. LAGARDE DOES NOT TRUST GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS, BECAUSE THEY NEVER APPLY WHAT THEY VOTE IN THE GRAND BROTHEL OF KLEPTOCRACY ON SYNTAGMA SQUARE! ALL EUROPEANS CONDEMN GRAECOKLEPTOCRATS FOR CREATING HUNDRED STATE AGENCIES AND HIRING MANY THOUSANDS OF PUBLIC EMPLOYEES, EVEN THOUGH THEY PROMISED TROIKA TO CLOSE DOWN ALL AGENCIES AND FIRE MANY PUBLIC EMPLOYEES. LAGARDE CANNOT STAND VENIZELOS, FOUNDER OF KLEPTOCRATIC IMPUNITY!

THERE CAN BE NO GROWTH WITHOUT ABOLISHING HUGE REGULATION, HUGE TAXATION, AND HUGE POLITICAL CORRUPTION. BASIL VENITIS, VENITIS@GMAIL.COM, HTTP://VENITISM.BLOGSPOT.COM

Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn Angels And Demons
The Solid Divulge of the Fair Start off or Fair Start off was a Cautious Event OF Solid Mind perpetuating Western Complex Tendency. Apparently series of knowledge Solid, Kabbalistic, Alchemical and Fairy-tale untutored in England in the very late nineteenth century put on the right track the work of three vast personalities. Mathers, Westcot, and Woodman Whichever of the best renowned members of the Solid Divulge of the Fair Start off were: SL MCGREGOR MATHERS, William W. Westcott, Dion End, ARTHUR MACHEN, William Butler Yeats, ALGERNON BLACKWOOD, Florence Farr, Annie Horniman, BRAM STOKER (Inventor OF DRACULA Weighty), Austin Osman Overkill, Gustav Meyrink and AE Waite, even though the official is the propose magician Aleister Crowley and demonologist, who was brusquely ejected from the Divulge by his Supreme SL McGregor Mathers. Crowley highly thought of the foundations of "Magick" apply that underlies the Fair Start off Thelemite, whose penchant is alternative from that of the Fair Start off Timeless. Mathers and Crowley's guide significant the magic secret unit put on the right track a magical battle, which Crowley emerged lucrative. According to his equals Crowley, the dreamlike English magician was "full of demons from be in charge to toe." Bram Stoker himself wrote the Feeble Rat The Gravel, anyplace the crucial image says he tried to offer the BLACK Juggler CROWLEY.Underside the trail of AE Waite, a Christian esoteric Divulge placed supervisor inflection on Religious studies in Inscrutability.however, Mathers continued the Divulge. The Solid Divulge of the Fair Start off unmoving exists and continues to transport its practices and experience, but this time somewhere else from Dark ESOTERICISM and SATANISM, more rapidly to THE ANGELS, who relies on their practices.
