About ‘christians’ Supporting Trump

I was just watching a video by Irving Baxter, regarding the coming new holocaust of the Jews…  In it Dr. Baxter made some relevant and fascinating points that I believe all Americans would benefit from awakening to!

So, if you agree, then please RT this blog so that others might become aware of this as well.

The first point is that the events of Revelation in the Bible are difficult to comprehend, without substantial study… but more importantly, they are actually quite relevant to each of us today.  The Bible speaks of Israel [the woman with twelve stars on her head] will be helped by the wings of an angel.  In the Bible, the US is symbolized by an Eagle.  So, Baxter’s belief is that the US will support Israel against the army of the Antichrist… over a period just ahead [let us hope this is true]!

That then got me to remembering the idea of Apostate christians, or as Baxter put it: Those people who are Catholic, or Protestant … somewhat like RINOs, or christian in name only.  That is, people who call themselves Christians, but people who are willing to “compromise” the principles of Christianity to achieve “universal faith,” or “universal brotherhood,” where people subtly begin to praise the UN’s idea of Christianity… which means, all faiths are the same.  This ‘universalism’ idea is one several Popes have pushed  over the tenure of the last five Popes.

If one will do a little study of the writings and pronouncements of these Popes, one will quickly see that they have been doing their best to encourage all nations to surrender sovereignty to the One World Government of the UN, by encouraging all people to submit to a “universal” governing body, administered by the United Nations.  The Antichrist will rise in the UN, in the near future, and all 1-worlders around the world are striving for this to happen.

These one-worlder type people are elitists, wealthy, intellectual, and most are somewhat connected to high positions in many governments.  They are also a strange type of Marxist, who believe the masses must be governed by elitists like themselves.

Now we come to Trump, whose wealth places him in contact with, and makes him a part of this elitist community.  Therefore, the “so-called” christians favoring Trump are not Christians, they are Apostate christians [in name only], and they are therefore [and unknowingly] serving Satan.  They have no idea that they are being used by Satan, to prevent Senator Cruz from becoming a force for good that will help America remain “sovereign,” and free from the UN, which only needs one more Liberal vote in the Supreme Court to make the Constitution null and void.

Please share this for those open to what is taking place.

Thinking is an involved process…

This diagram illustrates the process of thinking, and the alternative process of Intuition.

thinking

One’s Intuition is an aspect of ones Spiritual dimension, and has nothing to do with intellect, or thinking. Notice it by-passes the thinking process entirely.

Thinking, on the other hand, begins in the Higher MIND, and is largely based on one’s Fate Karma [that one came into the Earth plane to work through]. Also involved in thinking is what I refer to as the “DM=SI,” or Defense Mechanism equals Subtle Insanity.

And, although we ‘think’ we have “free will,” what we actually have is a “conditioned free will,” which means we are constantly operating like actors on a stage [acting out a part we wrote ourselves — based on what Karma we wanted to work on in this lifetime]. And the other players that come onto the stage are bit players that LIFE has arranged to be part of the play we designed. This is precisely what Shakespeare spoke of.

From time to time, each of us experiences something akin to Deja vu, or a sense that we have somehow experienced some situation previously?  This is a vague memory of a prior experience that we did, indeed, experience, and we are now currently re-playing that experience in hopes of “Completing the Karma we created in that previous event”.

The Genius of God in establishing the Law of Karma is that it normally operates in a way that we rarely even notice that it is a repeat of some previous event.  And the mercy of God is that we are allowed to keep repeating past events until we finally realize that what “caused” the event is our own previous actions, and that we need to “Accept” responsibility for what we are experiencing, and to forgive all the actors,including ourselves.

This is what Christ meant when he said do not judge, and when a person slaps you one one cheek, turn the other cheek as well.

In other words… try to accept responsibility for the event, and  forgive the people involved.  Very often quite difficult to do!

What Does “End Time” Mean?

There is a great deal written about the ‘End Time’ [in the Bible], and who… other than someone who knows precisely what the Bible is talking about… can tell us what the Bible means?  I mean specifically, and in total, not just the aspects that may or may not take place in physical terms alone?

I ask this because it seems quite apparent to me that there are two dimensions being addressed in Revelation; one is this physical dimension, and the second is another dimension that is simply spoken of as “a new heaven and a new earth“. For there to be a new heaven and a new earth, the old heaven and earth must be replaced.

For example, what does this verse mean:  Revelation 21:1 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”?  At least two questions occur to me?  1. Can an earth pass away and the people who inhabited the earth remain?  2. Verse 20:4…I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Then we have Verse 20:5…But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

It seems to me this verse, speaking of “the rest of the dead” is not addressed in the speculation of many authors.  There is also the question of the “first resurrection” and the “second death,” and the thousand years that separate the “first resurrection” and the “second death”.  A “second death”?  What does this mean, and to whom does the “second death” apply?   Does this mean the dead are to die again, or does this mean there were people who did not die at the time of the first resurrection?

Because in Chapter 20, verse 8, it states that Satan, upon release after a thousand years, in verse 7 …”shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.”

20:9 “...and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

20:10  “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire” where the beast [Antichrist] and the false prophet are, and that all are …”tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

20:11  Merely states that the “earth and heaven had fled away;  and there was found no place for them.”  This suggests to me the absence of the physical plane of existence, and that what is taking place is occurring in the Astral region of Creation, and not on Earth at all… since both earth and heaven “had fled away“.*

*In Eastern mysticism, this would be explained as what is called a “mini Dissolution,” or the dissolving of the physical universe for a period of time equal to the time it had existed, since its last dissolution?

20:12 And again, there is another “final” judgement, and “they were judged every man according to their works.” 20:13  Ditto. 20:14  “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”

In the Eastern scriptures, there is history of life existing long before Christianity, and life existing [on a continuing basis] long after the dissolution of the Earth. So, the small point I am making is that the story of the Bible, is true… but it is also merely part of a much larger Reality that is also TRUE.

In my humble opinion, what Revelation is referring to by way of the “end time,” is a mini-dissolution, in which the entire physical universe is dissolved for a period of time equal to the time it was in existence.  And the Souls [that are not cast into the lake of fire], are pulled up to the Astral region until the physical universe begins again.  At which time Souls will once again begin to incarnate into the physical universe to explore and experience it… in whatever forms “fit” their needs as determined by where, on the Ladder of Life, their Souls happen to reside? And all of this is under the Law of Karma, Created by God expressly for this purpose.

What Black Children Taught Me…

When I graduated from San Diego State University, with my teaching credential, I was offered a job teaching Art at Lincoln High School, in San Diego, California.

I was 28 years of age, and a Veteran, having spent my time in Germany, at the time Germany was given back complete governance of itself, in 1956, I believe it was. So, I was a bit more experienced than many first year teachers, perhaps?

In the course of my own education, I had, with others, opened two Art Galleries, one is Northern California, and one is downtown San Diego. My point is that I was a bit of an artist, and a bit of an entrepreneur.  And the reason I mention this will be obvious a bit later.

I had done one of my student teaching assignments at La Jolla High School, in La Jolla, California… which was an upper income area, and the students were both highly motivated and educated.  And they had highly educated parents. I mention this because it was easy to teach art to these students, since they were quite familiar with art in their lives.

In contrast to this, the students of Lincoln High School came from an area of lower income parents, and the area was known by the children to have gangs that wandered the streets continually… since the members of these gangs.. did not work, were not very educated, and were generally hostile, angry, and tended to perceive themselves as “victims” of society in general, and “the white man” in particular.

So, into this invisible atmosphere of hate, rage, and fear… which permeated the neighborhood… and crept into the school itself, I came all excited to teach Art.

Now, I don’t know how much the reader knows about Art, but Art is unique in education, in that the sum and substance of Art is WITHIN the “psyche” of a person, and not something one can ‘think’ about, or accomplish by thinking.  In other words, Art  is part of the emotional [Spiritual] structure of a person.  And, to the degree a person is closed to his emotions [such as children who are constantly in a state of fear, regarding their very lives] , the thought of, or interest in, or need for Art is, at best… a distant desire of such children.

I learned this first hand in the first few days of my classes.  So, I began to teach each class as I had Intuitively discovered in my student teaching… That is, most children have had their natural Creativity “beaten” out of them by adults making fun of their early attempts to express themselves in drawings.  So to “force” the students to get back a portion of their early skills, I gave the students large pieces of paper, bowls of water-based black paint, and small ‘2 inch wide’ paint brushes.

The point of this… is that it is virtually impossible to be careful, good, right, or make a mistake… when one is told to draw a vase,  set up on a table in the front of the classroom, using his/her 2 inch paint brush… and a time limit of a minute.

Each time I said:  “OK, Draw”!  And each time more of the children would try, since there was no time for any of them to check out how well or badly anyone else was doing… And when the floor was filling up with pieces of paper, I told the class to gather up the paper and throw it in the trash.  I would  then pass out more paper and we would do more drawing, each time I changed the object being “drawn”.

This exercise subtly did two things:  1. It clearly demonstrated that I didn’t care what the drawings looked like. 2. It was obvious that one wanted to appear as stupid if one did not engage in the activity.

It also accomplished a third, crucial thing… which was to get rid of the idea that Art is something that “others might do, but not oneself”.  I pointedly expressed the fact that Art is the DOING of the drawing, NOT WHAT THE DRAWING LOOKS LIKE.

During the course of the semester, several students were [obvious to me], very talented, and a couple were even gifted artists.  I also noted with curiosity that their Art work remained in the room, and none of the students took it with them. Read this last sentence again.  Why would some really nice works of Art not be taken home?

I finally asked one male student, who was quite bright generally…:  “Tom, why do you not take your work home?”

And Tom said:  “If I were to take my Art work home, I would be accosted on the street, and my work would be destroyed, and I would be beaten”.

I did my best to hear what he said, and not react outwardly, but inwardly… I was sad, shocked, and felt a huge anger within myself.

So, I decided to arrange the first annual Lincoln High School Art Show.  And the entire community was invited to attend.  It was a grand success, and I made sure parents went home with the Art work of their children.

I will never forget what I learned about evil… and how certain people are so filled with self-hatred, that they simply must project their pain upon others, in the form of anger and abuse… as they make-up any excuse they can for doing what their MINDs drive them to do.  It is not brutality these pitiful people need, it is an opportunity to touch the Love of God hidden deep within themselves;  this is what they desperately need.

One More Time Regarding 1,000 year Reign of Christ AND THEN A SECOND “DEATH”

In Revelation 20:4-5 , we find this:

4.  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgement was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads,or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5   But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

AND THEN… WE READ…

Revelation 20:7,8,9 & 12 & 14-15

7  And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed our of his prison,

8  And shall go out to deceive the nations… to gather them together to battle

Now… this is peculiar, to say the least!  And I am left with only one reasonable thought. Either all life is extinguished on Earth at the time of Armageddon, or some people survive [and live a  life  (absent Satan) for a thousand years]… And then… Satan is released from the bottomless pit, and causes the people on Earth to…

9  And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city:  and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

And then “the devil” (Satan) “was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast [Antichrist] and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

And then… We have “the second death“.  Or should it be called the “final judgment”?

20:12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God: and the books were opened: and another book was opened , which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books

20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

___________ Now… Chapter 21 of Revelation begins with a concept THAT IS NOT discussed by most Christian Clergy. Although this concept is well known by nearly half of the world.

21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

21:2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for hurt husband.

I believe Chapter 21, verses 1, 2 and the rest of Chapter 21, is speaking of one of two things — or perhaps both:  First…those taken up in the first resurrection [and any others judged to be worthy in the final judgement] are to live in the Astral region of Creation…  and will not have to reincarnate into the Earth again.  Second,  the Earth will experience a mini-dissolution for a period of time, and will eventually begin again… with a new Golden Age, and when the Earth is ready, other Souls that have not experienced the Earth plane, will begin populating the Earth, for another cycle of Life… as it moves through the four Ages of Man: The Golden Age, the Silver Age, the Copper or Bronze Age, and finally the Iron Age, the current close of which is referred to in the Bible as the “End Time” Prophecy, of the book of Revelation.

What I have described above “fits” quite nicely with the teachings of ancient mystical texts studied and practiced in the East.  But, any or all of this can be denied, ignored,or thought to be nonsense.  I write this only because it seems reasonable for me to share what I have learned over the last 40+ years.
