The Word 1

Christ’s words:

The Word 1

DMankind has long sought to understand himself and his world; to penetrate the mystery of the beginning of life and of the origin of the force that regulates the Universe. Though scientists have gathered a vast amount of knowledge about living things, they still do not know what life actually is. Scientists believe that life originated in a primordial ocean which contained various chemicals in solution. It is their theory that solar energy and the passage of billions of years worked on those chemicals to form complex organic molecules which combined to form larger molecules. The theory goes on to explain that the larger molecules existed in an environment rich in organic compounds which they used as food.

Existing scientific concepts of evolution have formed largely around Charles Darwin’s theory of the origin of species. Darwin envisaged evolution as many small transitional changes in the genetic structure of organisms with offspring varying slightly from their parents, and as one small change proved advantageous, it was adopted and supplemented by later changes which introduced further improvements. However, all efforts to trace the origin of man are dependent upon a fossil record which is unable to provide the unbroken series of transitional forms which would bear out Darwin’s theory of gradual development.

It is said that religion opposes evolution by maintaining that life was created by GOD. Revelation chapter 4 is given over to the great importance of GOD’S holy time structure which ensures the continued growth and development of GOD’S creatures: “for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created”. “Were created” refers to the original creation and “are created” refers to on-going growth and development. The Truth is a wondrous affirmation of GOD as the original Creator and the continuing Developer of HIS creations. The Truth confirms GOD’S original work and the on-going marvel of HIS creative evolution. It is this joyful Truth which I came to share with you. While I live among you I share the Truth with whoever listens to me, but because I can’t sit down and talk with all of GOD’S children, I have decided to put my words in writing, that you may all bear witness to the ancient message which I have come to restore

Despite a history of failing to recognize Christ, people still expect a figure who conforms to their preconceptions. However, it is those very preconceptions, to which they cling so fast, that blind people to me.

Isiah 53:2-3 And when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men. A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

1 Peter 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God.

When I first walked among my brothers and sisters on earth they failed to grasp the significance of events which were unfolding around them, therefore, they believed that my appearance on Earth was a long way off. However, the signs and the times are now at hand, the mark of the beast has been embedded into the skin of the first “digital family”, and, in the mind of every spiritual person, there is no longer a doubt that Biblical prophecy is about to be fulfilled.

It is my duty to end your fear of death and to restore your faith in the resurrection to eternal life. It is also my duty to warn you about Satan’s disciples, some of whom are already in your midst, and would lure you away from your homeland, and tempt you to join them in Satan’s bewitching, beguiling, glittering, dazzling, but vile and abominable world.

De 13:15 Men, sons of worthlessness, have gone out of thy midst, and they force away the inhabitants of their city, saying, “Let us go and serve other gods”, which ye have not known, and thou hast inquired, and searched, and asked diligently, and lo, truth; the thing is established; this abomination hath been done in thy midst. Thou dost surely smite the inhabitants of that city, and all in it, even its cattle, by the mouth of the sword.

There are evil-doers among you who have broken man’s covenant with GOD and desired to place themselves above Him. They will try to entice you away from your homeland with false promises and sweet words. Do not go with them! They are Satan’s disciples. I will set up apostles who will be your good and true shepherds. They will deliver the Truth to you, and the promise which is in the Truth: the promise of Heaven to come. These good apostles will have the power to forgive sins and to baptize you for Heaven, in the name of Jesus. Do not be influenced by sinners! If you cannot help sinners, do not keep company with them. If you have not already done so, the time is upon you to put aside all wrong-doing. Love your brothers and sisters and help them when they are in need. Live a good life and go bravely to your grave in full expectation of resurrection. Put aside your fear of death, for the grave holds a reward for the righteous. Through rebirth you shall inherit an incorruptible heavenly body.

Eph 4:9-32 And that he went up, what is it except that he also went down first to the lower parts of the earth? He who went down is the same also who went up far above all the heavens, that He may fill all things and He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as proclaimers of good news, and some as shepherds and teachers, for ministration, unto the perfecting of mankind, till we may all come to the unity of the faith and to a perfect man, to a measure of stature of the Christ. Let us no more be babes, tossed and borne about by every wind of wayward teaching, in the cunning of men, in craftiness, unto the artifice of leading astray. Being true in love, we may increase in all things, as he who is the head — the Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitly joined together and united, through the supply of every joint, according to the working in the measure of each single part, the increase of the body doth make for the building up of itself in love. This, then, I say, and I testify in the Lord; ye are no more to walk, as also the other nations walk, in the vanity of their mind, being darkened in the understanding, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart, who, having themselves ceased to feel, did give themselves over to greed, turning even God’s name into profit. If so be ye did hear the Christ, and in him were taught, ye are to put off the former behaviour, and the old self that is corrupt, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind to put on the new man. Wherefore, speak truth each with his neighbor, because we are members one of another; do not sin; let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Whoso is stealing let him rather labor, working with the hands, that he may be able to impart to those in need. Let no corruption of words go forth from your mouth, but what is truth unto the needful speak thus, that your words may grace the ears of the listeners. Make not sorrowful the Spirit of God. Put away all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil-speaking, and malice, and become one to another kind, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, according as also God in Christ did forgive you.

Sir 50:1-29 Simon the high priest, the son of Onias, who in his life repaired the house again, and in his days fortified the temple: And by him was built from the foundation the double height, the high fortress of the wall about the temple: In his days the cistern to receive water, being in compass as the sea, was covered with plates of brass: He took care of the temple that it should not fall, and fortified the city against besieging: How was he honored in the midst of the people in his coming out of the sanctuary! He was as the morning star in the midst of a cloud, and as the moon at the full: Then all the people together hastened, and fell down to the earth upon their faces to worship their God Almighty. The singers also sang praises with their voices, with great variety of sounds was there made sweet melody. And they bowed themselves down to worship the second time, that they might receive a blessing from God. Now therefore bless ye the God of all, which only doeth wondrous things everywhere, which exalteth our days from the womb, and dealeth with us according to his mercy.

Be resolute, be brave, and face the changes to come. For those who are steadfast and unmoved will be victorious and inherit life on the Morning Star. The Earth will be moved out of this orbit and be instated as Heaven. Therefore do not go with the tempters who would instil in you fear of the Earth who bore you and sustains you. For I died to be born among you, to die again and rise again from the dead, that by my example I may help you to put aside your fear of death.

St. John 3:3-10 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of Heaven. Nicodemus saith to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born? Jesus answered “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water, and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is everyone that is born of the Spirit.

The promise is not of an ephemeral, mystical condition; the promise is of resurrection from death and rebirth in the completed body on the Morning Star. It may be difficult for you to accept that you can exist in an orbit closer to the Sun, where the atmosphere contains gases which are poisonous to your present body. Completed man is adapted to live closer to the Sun. He is adapted to a greatly different atmosphere and temperature. When you are considering rebirth closer to the Sun, you may have to call on faith, rather than reason. Bear in mind, in your considerations, that while boiling point and weight vary considerably at different points on Earth, you are able to adapt to these differences. So too, though conditions vary from planet to planet you are adapted, by reason of a changed body, to the differences.

1Co 15:1-58 I make known to you, brethren, the good news that I proclaimed to you, which also ye did receive, through which ye are being saved, in the words I proclaimed to you: if ye hold fast.

For I delivered to you that which I also did receive, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Writings, and that he was buried, and that he did rise on the third day, according to the Writings, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve, afterwards he appeared to more than five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain (alive) till now, although certain also did fall asleep (die). Afterwards he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.

And last of all he did appear to me, for I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, and by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace that is towards me came not in vain, for more abundantly than the others did I labor.

So we preach, and so ye believe, that Christ out of the dead hath risen, then how say certain among you, that there is no rising again of dead persons? If there be no rising again of dead persons, how then hath Christ risen? And if Christ hath not risen, then void is our preaching, and void also your faith, and we also are found unworthy witnesses of God, because we did testify that God raised up the Christ, whom how did he rise, if dead persons do not rise? If dead persons do not rise, neither hath Christ risen, and if Christ hath not risen, vain is your faith, ye are yet in your sins; then, also, those having fallen asleep in Christ did perish; and if it is so that the dead do not rise, then, as we have hope in Christ only, of all men we are most to be pitied.

But Christ hath indeed risen out of the dead — the first-fruits of those sleeping he became, for since through man is death, through man also is a rising again from the dead, for even as in Adam all die, so also in the Christ all shall be made alive, and each in his proper order, a first-fruit Christ, and afterwards those who are the Christ’s. Then — the end, when he may deliver up the reign to God the Father, when he may have made useless all rule, and all authority and power — for it behoveth him to reign till he may have put all the enemies under his feet — the last enemy is done away – death. All things He did put under his feet, and, when one may say that all things have been subjected, it is evident that He is excepted who did subject all things to him. And when all things may be subjected to him, then the Son also himself shall be subject to Him, who did subject to him all things, that God may be the all in all.

What shall they do who are baptized for the dead, if the dead do not rise at all? Why also do we stand in peril every hour? Every day do I die, by the glorying of you that I have in Christ our Lord: after the manner of a man with wild beasts I fought in Ephesus, what is the advantage to me if the dead do not rise? Let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die!

Be not led astray; evil communications corrupt goodness. Wake up, and sin not; for shame to you who have ignorance of God.

Some one will say, `How do the dead rise? Unwise! Thou — what wheat thou dost sow must first die before it is quickened; and God doth give to each seed its proper fruit.

All flesh is not the same, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another of fishes, and another of birds.

So too there are heavenly bodies, and earthly bodies; but one is according to the glory of heaven, and another is that of earth. One glory of sun, and another glory of moon, and another glory of stars, for star from star doth differ in glory.

So also is the rising again of the dead: the dead is sown in corruption, and it is raised from the dead in incorruption. The first man is out of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord out of heaven. And, as we bear the image of the earthy, we shall bear also the image of the heavenly.

And this I say, brethren, this flesh and blood of the earthy body is not able to inherit the reign of God, nor doth the corruption inherit the incorruption; lo, I tell you a secret; we indeed shall not all sleep, and we all shall be changed! In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, in the last trumpet, for it shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we — we shall be changed: for it behoveth this corruptible flesh to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality; and when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal may has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the word that hath been written, ‘Death was swallowed up — to victory’.

Where, O Death, is thy sting?where, O Hades, thy victory?’For the sting of death is sin. Give thanks to God who is giving us victory through our Christ so, my beloved brethren, be steadfast and be unmovable, and abound in the work of the Lord at all times, knowing that your labor is not in vain.

The Koran, Chapter of the Pilgrimage O ye folk! If ye are in doubt about the raising of the dead,-verily, I created you from soil of Earth, then from a clot of mud, then from congealed blood, then from a morsel, shaped or shapeless, that I may explain to you. And I make what I please rest in the womb until an appointed time; then I bring you forth babes; then let you reach your full age; and of you are some who die young; and of you are some who are kept back till a decrepit age, till he knows no longer aught of knowledge. And when ye see the earth parched, I send down water on it and it stirs and swells, and brings forth herbs of every beauteous kind. I am God, I am Truth, I quicken the dead; and the Hour is coming, there is no doubt therein, when I shall raise up those who are in the tombs.

Religion exerts a powerful influence over the actions of people. Men write about it, argue about it, endure solitude, fasting and celibacy for the sake of it. They even kill for religion and die for it. But very few really try to understand it.

Many cults and religious organizations are announcing the imminence of a new era and declaring themselves to have a monopoly on the truth. Blind to my identity, representatives of many religious organization have done their utmost to persuade me to convert; when I would not convert to their chosen religion, I was rejected.

However much it may differ from your idea of what the Truth should be, this is the Truth: In the very near future Mercury and Venus are going to enter the Sun. The Moon will move into the orbit vacated by Mercury and Earth will enter the orbit vacated by Venus. Every planet in the Solar System will move one position closer to the Sun. Earth will become the new Heaven, and Mars will become the new Earth

Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth: for the first Heaven and the first Earth had passed away.

The Three Tenors present Stage 3 of the Tirreno – Andriatico

 

I love pro-cycling. It totally inspires me. I know I should be doing more poetry videos, but then I see a fabulous race – maybe it’s  a brutal climb up a steep mountain or (as this video shows) a thrilling drag race finish, and I’m hunkering down making another cycling video.  At least they’re popular – unlike my poetry videos :)

Read more about and from one of the great stars of pro-cycling Peter Sagan on his Facebook page here.

Haiku by Ryokan

Time  2:02

A great example of how ‘video’ in video poetry can add unexpected depth to words and experience.

A  contributor at the Moving Poems Forum, poet Ren Powell, explained: “I really enjoyed the hyper-awareness of my own attention span – thinking how much I enjoy watching things in nature really and how little time I give to it… then the haiku makes me laugh – while I have been enjoying the view a thief has robbed me.”
