Editor’s note: I wrote the original draft of The Prisoner of 1967 in 2009, then went over it again in 2015, but I feel that it is time to actually post it (in 2020) because of the conditions around the world right now.
– or – SEVENTY-SEVEN GENERATIONS?
In the Book of St. Matthew (which is in the tone of the Word) chapter one presents forty generations from Abraham to Jesus. This number forty symbolizes the generation of man’s spiritual birth, because a woman is pregnant for forty weeks. In Matthew the lineage goes only back to Abraham, the first father of the Israelites (in the Third Day of Soul). The Lord God Jehovah is not the God Almighty that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew. Yet in the Book of St. Luke (which is in the tone of Christianity) Jesus lineage goes all the way back to Adam (a man of sin) being “the son of God.” I believe that there is a specific reason for this. I believe that the Word begins with a spiritual type of manhood (Jesus), while Christianity seems to lead us back to the pure idea or our true being – God. When this happens we find that we are home in heaven. Yet perhaps a Bible verse from John 16:28 helps explain the difference between the two lineages of Jesus. Matthew (the Word) – “I came forth from the Father,” Mark (the Christ) – “and am come into the world again, I leave the world,” Luke (Christianity) – “and go to the Father”. Mary Baker Eddy tells us, “Science unfolds the eternal verity, that man is the spiritual, eternal reflection of God” (S&H 296:2).
Recently mainstream media (the Liberal Press) and the Democrats have been spewing forth propaganda that followers of President Trump are in a cult, that President Trump is a cult leader.
First off I would like to say, that I am willing to accept that I am part of the cult because I understand what the word cult REALLY means! So, let us examine the word cult in order to educate the mainstream media-Liberal Press and Democrats.
The first thing that Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary says about cult is as follows: “[adoration; to cultivate—more at WHEEL].” Adoration has to do with adoring someone or perhaps some god or even the one God. So we could say that religions in general could be considered as cults. What does cultivate mean? “1: to prepare or prepare and use for the raising of crops; specif: to loosen or break up the soil about (growing plants) 2 1: to foster the growth of b: culture 2a c: to improve by labor, care, or study: refine 3: further encourage 4: to seek the society of: make friends with.” Well, can we accept that the followers of President Trump are farmers? Some of them are, for sure, but not all of them. So, let us look to 2a c’s definition. Culture is an improvement of mankind through three things – labor, care, and study. And these things refine (improve, perfect by pruning or polishing; to free from what is coarse, vulgar, or uncouth; to become pure and perfected) mankind. So, again, being part of a cult seems to be a pretty good thing to me!
Bible Prophecy Fulfilled (continued)
Chapter 16 of Bliss Knapp’s book The Destiny of The Mother Church is titled “Prophecy”. It begins on page 236 with the picture seen below. In the top left hand corner, on the Side of Life, there is Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy (there are also other less defined figures in the clouds). Then with hands in prayer fashion and looking to heaven, more in the center, but near the Side of Light there is the man child.
Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Understand What the BIBLE Really Says?
How much do they know about BIBLE history and its writing? Do they even know or care that there are two distinct creation accounts in Genesis? One is called the Elohistic Document and it is about the spiritual creation done by Elohim-Shaddai, the second is called the Jehovistic Document and it is about an allegorical creation of a material world and man created by the Lord God Jehovah. Jehovah is their main God, the one that is most important to the Witnesses. These two documents were not even written down (into the Torah) until the Jews (not the Israelites) were taken into Babylonian captivity. Any accounts of creation before this time, as well as stories about the Patriarchs, were handed down through verbal story telling.
Recently the mainstream (Liberal) Media have tried to erase the word “mob” when used to describe leftist groups who are harassing Republicans or people they just plain do not like. One example: opinion news commentator Tucker Carlson. Just this week a Leftist group gathered around his house. His wife was the only one home, he was at work (which I bet they knew), and fortunately their children were not at home. Mrs. Carlson did not know what was going on but she did call 911 for help. These people (Antifa) were yelling out and trying to break down the front door. These people were not protesters, as they pretend to be or call themselves, no, they were vandals and they were also a MOB!
Let me go to the dictionary (Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary) to tell you what the word “mob” actually means – and let us see if the mainstream (Liberal-Socialist) Media actually is correct in trying to get people to stop using the word “mob”. Should they really be shushing their guests? Do not their guests have the “freedom of speech”?
