    The Grand Illusion...

    Hello Folks...

    Hope all is well with you as we view yet another "so called" delay on the Iraqi dinar's currency front... I was listening to a group who was popular during the 1970's and 80's who called themselves "Styx." .... As some of you may recall they had an album entitled ''Grand Illusion." And this title came back to memory as I was reading some of the comments on chat about the IMF's role in this whole affair... The illusion that Iraq is in reality in control of their own monetary policy.. Not just Iraq though, but the world at large... All countries with central banks are being run by an independent group of bankers who are not beholden to the laws which a country passes within itself... These bankers are able to make sure that policies enacted can, and will ensure their control over that countries governance simply because they do control the money supply... It is that simple...

    Yet, these individuals have managed to create front groups such as the IMF, or the World Bank in order to ensure their desire to remain hidden for the most part... The illusion is that the majority, if not all, of this world's countries are independent... The push for this one world order continues as distractions, and misinformation about what occurs in our world continues... The creation of terrorist groups in order to bring the population under subjection to a set of rules meant to bring about the illusion of "peace, and security." (see 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 verse 3, and see what occurs after this has supposedly been achieved by the world apart from our Creator)...

    Without God there is no peace, and security... Just an illusion that there is... Sin has always brought forth death... This is what the serpent, or the devil convinced Adam, and Eve to believe in the Garden of Eden... The illusion that he had much more to offer them, and that God was withholding vital information from them... Lucifer convinced them that there is much more to life, and brought forth a spirit of discontentment...

    How long this relationship with the serpent Adam, and Eve had before the both of them coming to place their trust in his lies, and deception is not stated... I would imagine that it took more than just a brief conversation, and there had been a relationship established since the "King of Tyre", or Satan (see Ezekiel chapter 28 verses 11-19) was given the responsibility to help watch over the garden... And especially those who were created in God's image... Instead of being the helper he was created to be, this fallen cherub wanted it all to himself... And in time wanted to be like, and considered by God's creation as the Most High... (see Isaiah chapter 14 verses 12-15)....

    This too is an illusion that continues in our day... For our Creator has allowed for this fallen cherub to create kingdoms within a world that is, for the most part, in a spiritually fallen state... The reason is because of mankind's continued mistake of listening to what may seem good, and right... Yet, ultimately leads to destruction... A pattern that has been repeated throughout out history on God's planet...

    A spiritually deficient mankind has lead to the continued unrest of our society... We now find ourselves in a time when it is those who are striving to adhere to the will of the Creator of all, to be considered the problem by those who are rebellion against the Most High God... And these are the ones who are being used by the very one who foments this spirit of rebellion... Wanting others to express themselves in a manner contrary to the standards God has set before mankind as His, and what leads us to living life abundantly... Freedom redefined in a world where wrong is right, and right is wrong... Yet there is nothing new under the sun as the wise words of King Solomon pointed out...

    As scripture declares, God is allowing for mankind to carry this deviant behavior to a point as it was during the time of Noah before the flood... Compromise has lead to more compromise as mankind continues to try to find solutions to problems that are spiritual in nature... Looking to find relief by those who are themselves manipulated by the flesh, and the desire to fulfill it...

    This carousal ride has lead mankind to trying to look to flesh simply because the spirit in all human beings, apart from God's saving grace, has been corrupted by lawlessness... As Jesus Christ declared to those who He healed on a continual basis, "Go, and sin no more." The Savior of mankind was giving those who He had healed the reason for their imperfect physical state, and the solution as well... Sin has consequences... Yet solutions apart from God continue to be sought in vain..

    Problems, and chaos created by those who want to implement their solution to it... For control, and under the guise of liberty... This is why, IMHO, that what is about to transpire in Iraq, and provide an economic boost to the world's economy at large, is the final push before dramatic change transpires... Which is why I continued to emphasize Christine L.'s video in prior post as it pertains to the number 7, and the numerology aspect to all of this... The year 2022, IMHO, will be very interesting..The number 11 is a very important number to those who are involved in the esoteric... By doubling, or even tripling the number 11 only magnifies it's significance in their eyes... Do a study on numbers as it pertains to those who place their faith in them as it pertains to hidden knowledge...

    Remember Christine L. declared 7 years of economic prosperity... What will happen after this though, and what countries will be affected by this dramatic change?... Oh, the technology of today can create change in a moment... Changes that can be either good or bad... And maybe good for some nations, yet bad for others... Remember this dear friends...

    While one can choose to believe that her message had no relevance to what is, and will transpire within a time frame chosen, and allowed by God, we who are believers must not place our hope in a world that will indeed suffer the consequences of lawlessness... That is why the bible describes lawlessness a mystery in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2... It is a mystery to those who are not saved from its ultimate fate... It brings anyone who practices it to an hypnotic state of being... Placing ones faith in what is an illusion, or fraud... Thus the worship of the false messiah, or man of sin during a time when the majority of mankind will have been duped into believing this fraud is God...

    But again, this way of thinking begins from within the spirit that all of humanity is born with... That which defines us, and the decisions that we make as it pertains to our physical existence... And what are we to place our trust in?... IN the flesh which leads to death... Or in the Spirit of God which leads to life everlasting... See Romans chapter 8 for more information on that which has been mankind's problem from the beginning of our fallen state of spiritual well being, and the sure remedy for this state of being...

    So do we believe in the illusions that have been set before this world we live in as truth?... Remember we all have the choice to believe lies, or the Truth as it pertains to the world we live in... God is Truth, Life, and the Way in which will ultimately lead to eternal life... The illusion that mankind can find a perpetual fountain of youth apart from God is indeed the Grand Illusion... Decisions made apart from our Creator's wonderful council will only lead to death.. NOT LIFE...

    God's prophetic Word is being fulfilled before our very eyes... And as technology has changed the speed in which we have advanced within our physical lives... Yet, we still have spiritual problems that these advancements have not, and will never change within the heart of mankind... So while this RV will bring physical relief to our lives, it will certainly not resolve the problems that beset our world... The need for Truth, and spiritual healing can only be accomplished through repentance in the manner that our Creator prescribes within His Word the bible...

    Let us remember to pray for one another, and bear in mind the parable Jesus Christ declared concerning the man who stored up his wealth... While it could have used to help others, this man decided it was best to build storage facilities to ensure it was kept safe... While we indeed should desire to help others who are in need, we must not believe the illusion that our wealth will change the world the Jesus Christ describes as "evil." ... We, who believe in Messiah have, and do exist within this present evil age are in the world, yet are not of the world...

    We shine forth as light for the glory of our Wonderful Savior, yet realize His return is the only solution that will rid this world of the illusion that is spiritual in nature... And that of course will occur at the blowing of the 7th, and last trumpet of God... As the enemies of the Most High God will be either destroyed in the lake of fire, or placed within the bottomless pit as described in Revelation chapters 19, and 20... Until then the mystery of lawlessness will continue to be just that to those who have not accepted God's grace on His terms...

    Oh, and one more thing... We are held responsible to prove all things in accordance to God's Word, and in accordance to scripture... There are many false prophets, and what the bible describes as hirelings in our world... Those who use God's Word for physical gain... Declaring that which those who are not truly spiritually healed want to hear, instead of what needs to be heard... We must remember to seek the Truth which Jesus Christ represent in our every way on a personal level.. After all, we are all to be judged as individuals in the end... Remembering that if we want the Truth, we must seek it in accordance to God's will... Examining our spiritual lives, while being honest about our assessment about who we really are, and what we have chosen to believe...

    In other words, do we view the world as we want to see it... Or how God's views it... All to often (myself included in times past), we want to see the world with rose colored glasses on... Taking those glasses off, and viewing this present evil age does take effort at times... But if one truly wants to be set free from the bondage of sin, viewing the world from our Creator's perspective is vital to staying on the straight, and narrow... So that with the indwelling of God's Spirit, no matter if one is rich or poor, we will always be content as we await the fulfillment of God's Word.. Now that is Truth, and will indeed bring forth life to those, in faith, practice the will of our Sovereign Creator...

    Please remember to help those who are in need... Remembering that we do not need everything we may desire to attain as it pertains to the flesh... After all, it will perish... But the example that was given us as it pertains to wealth was what transpired during the time of the 1st century AD, as the body of Messiah began to grow in numbers... Those who had excess, sold that which they had to help their fellow brethren... Now is an opportunity to show our Father in heaven where our treasure is... Not based on the flesh, but on that which originates in heaven above...

    May His grace continue to guide those who have placed their faith in Him... Something that we will never earn.. But in faith, with works, we show our Sovereign Lord that His love is being exercised in our lives... And that we appreciate the gift within us that is without price, while declaring His glory... All for HIM dear brethren... The least we can do... Yet, understanding it will never be enough... Realizing we please Him by being living sacrifices for His Wonderful Glory...

    God bless, and Peace Be With You...

    Re: The Grand Illusion...

    Good Afternoon, or Morning Friends in Dinarland...

    Well, this video has been on my mind from time to time since my first observance of it about 2 years ago or so... Considering what the Swiss have done, and how the Euro is going down in value against the dollar, (or the dollar gaining strength against... However one wants to view it), we see what these individuals were discussing during the first couple of minutes of this video seems to be applying to our day... Countries seem to be losing confidence in the Euro... So we will see what transpires as time goes on... Here is the link to that video by the way... http://www.bloomberg.com/video/inves...7ZRqeXCkQ.html

    Will the event we are waiting on occur this Saturday night?.. I do not know!... But it sure would be wonderful if it did eh!... In the mean time we wait, and continue to read the progress (albeit orchestrated IMHO) with the news brought to us by the hard working folks here at this site... It is appreciated as many have said.. This site is bar none the best as it pertains to the investment we are awaiting to bring forth a payoff...

    But isn't it great how God works?... Think about it!... While the increase in the dinar on a significant level has been going on from 11 plus years, so many have been given an opportunity to invest in it during the waiting period... Eyes have been opened to its potential, and we seem to be standing on the cusp of it actually occurring in the near future... Being able to prepare for its eminent increase, our Lord God has given us an opportunity to prepare for it both physically, and even more importantly spiritually... And it is the Spirit of God, for those who believe in His Son, and have repented through Him, Who we should allow to guide us as we await the greatest event since His initial appearance in the flesh... Only this time it will be to triumphantly overthrown the powers of darkness which have shrouded our world in deception with the illusion that all is well...

    Especially here in the West where sins, and the practice thereof has been on the rise since the 1960's.... Remember this my friends... God has not changed, and never will... His judgments have not been altered either as unrepentant, and willful sin still has consequences... WE must not base God's favor on a nation's physical blessings... For our Creator brings forth rain on the just, and the unjust... But ultimately He is no respecter of persons, or nations as it pertains to humanities behavior... Warnings within scripture go unheeded because of the love of lawlessness... And in time Almighty God will have no choice but to bring forth judgment to all nations who have lost the ability to discern right from wrong... Truly, sin is destructive, and the wages thereof lead to death... As the practice of lawlessness increases, the influence of evil, and those who propagate it in our world grows even more influential... Especially in the lives of those who do not have the Spirit of God in order to discern the deception that Satan the devil continues to promote...

    But for those who have placed their hope in God, there is nothing to fear... If one's lamp, and vessel is full (see Matthew chapter 25) there lies a strength, and a shield which nothing that pertains to the flesh can provide... No principality, whether of the flesh, or spiritual in nature, can ever take that which God has granted to those who love, and obey Him... And the primary reason for His Holy Spirit, or God in those who believe on Him, is to overcome the lusts of the flesh while developing the fruit of His Spirit... Love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, gentleness, patience, faith, and self-control... The greatest of these is love because God is love... For those who possess the Spirit of the Living God, these have love, and are His... Blessed be His Name...

    God bless folks, and have a great weekend...

    Re: The Grand Illusion...

    What happened with the Swiss currency was made to look as though nations have independent control of their own currency IMHO... Especially considering what is going down in the near future, and how ones who have invested in the Iraqi dinar have been seemingly scammed... Right?... Think about it... When it does occur, it will be as if this was all Iraq's doing... Without the intervention of the IMF... When in fact they pulled out in December if I am not mistaken... To prepare for the inevitable of course...

    Makes you wonder how other currencies are going to react... Anyway, as in the words of FDR... Something to the effect that if something occurs in the world of governing, or politics, it was planned to occur that way... Christine L. is a great actress, and has to be considering the position she has... This goes for all who have positions of importance (or seeming importance) within our world... The deception continues as we see a one world order being brought to fruition as scripture points out... Piece by piece, as if by magic... Yet the forces behind this movement are bringing this to pass in accordance to God's prophetic Word...

    And again you will not read, nor hear of their plans via the media... But it is hidden in plain sight... And it will be allowed by God to come to fruition... A world built on an ancient plan that some claim to be a New World Order... New for this day, and time... But old as it has been the hope of our adversary the devil for a very long time... A plan that God has not allowed to occur until this time... And only allowed to succeed for a period predetermined by our Creator... Sadly, the mystery, and the practice of lawlessness is the very reason it is having success... The heart of man is deceitfully wicked... Who can know it?... As Jeremiah 17 verse 9 points out...

    Man is allowed to be deceived because we have chosen the way of destruction, and death through the practice of lawless behavior... When it becomes the norm within society, there is no room for repenting of it within the heart of the people's of this earth... This unsound spiritual state makes it easier for Satan to manipulate the masses, and bring to fruition what we see transpiring in our world...

    Which is why we need the return of Jesus Christ, and God's righteousness to be the standard that governs all nations... But this will only begin once He does return, and rules the nations with a rod of iron from Jerusalem... For the history of mankind has proven that we are not inclined to walk in the Way of God with a willing spirit for the most part... There are a few, compared to the many who have ever lived, who have striven to do so... Yet, not without sin, save ONE... The ONE who was willing to die for the sins mankind has, and will commit... Having died while we were still sinners... What a Glorious, and Kind Creator we have... Blessed be His MOST HOLY NAME...

    Well, we wait, and see what comes to pass friends... Take care, and God bless...

    Re: The Grand Illusion...

    Good Morning... And it is very early... Remember that it will be 28 days on 1/21/2014 from the 25th of December... After mentioning the number 25 twice in her speech, Christine L., the IMF figurehead, mentioned the number 7 four times before mentioning the G7, and G20... One of those times was by using the year 2014... Of course if we compress the year 2014 (2+0+1+4) we have the number 7...

    Here is the link for that video again... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYmV...r_embedded#t=0

    The 25th of December was a date that a very important meeting was held where nothing seemingly transpired... Or did it?... So 14 days later, beginning the count from the 25th, we come to the 7th of January... Again another important date for Iraq because of a meeting that was held within parliament... But still no budget...

    So the date 01/20/2015 became the day that the budget would be voted on... But in the last few days it has been switched to the 21st of January... So the 21st of January will fulfill the 28 days, or four 7's mentioned in her speech if you begin the count from the 25th of December...

    And again I remind you fine folks that we are still in the year 2014 according to the lunar calendar.... Remember she also mentioned this to the National Press Club at the beginning of her address... Here is the link for the conversion table for the Gregorian, and lunar calendars once more..
    http://www.hko.gov.hk/gts/time/calendar/pdf/2015e.pdf

    You have to admit that the planning of these dates, and how they all fall on numbers that pertain to 7 is rather odd given the emphasis of the number 7 within Christine L.'s speech... 21 is of course three 7's as well... So we will see if this date, 01/21/2014 has significance ... It would be great if this all come to pass even earlier, but a few days will certainly not matter considering the amount of time many of us have waited for this to come to fruition...

    Time will tell, and the Good Lord willing.... God bless, and take care...

    Re: The Grand Illusion...

    Hello Folks...

    Such exciting, and sobering times we live in... It is truly a blessing for those of us who know the depth of deception that exists in our world, and why we do not place our trust in mankind.... The flesh is weak, even if the spirit in man is willing... The apostle Paul knew if he had placed himself within certain areas where he was instructed by the Spirit of God to preach the gospel, his life could very well be in danger... Many of those who loved Paul warned him not to place himself in such harms way... Yet, Paul did not want the people to follow, and rely upon him to the point of losing faith in God if his life were to be taken...

    This faithful apostle understood that his life was in God's hands anyway... And if he were to die for the sake of the Truth, so be it... It was God's will!... His number one priority was to ensure that the Truth about God was being preached, and once understood, not perverted by very crafty, or smooth talking hirelings... That is why Paul always exhorted those who he would come into contact to prove all things in accordance to the Word of God... While being lead, and taught by the Spirit of God in the process... It does take faith on a persons part to actually do this... Where so many place there trust in individuals who may have the best of intentions... Yet, they may also be wrong about certain aspects of God's Word...

    A spiritual condition that many will fall into because of "itching ears" is one where we can desire something to be so, or feel comfortable with it... Yet ignore what scripture actually says, or even individuals who are trying to help see the error that has been declared... Often times tradition can supersede the Truth about our Creator... And just because a tradition has been accepted by many for so long, does not necessarily make it accurate... Over time it can prove to be destructive to ones spiritual well being as it pertains to one's relationship with God... REALIZING our need for the Spirit of God in us fully is imperative for growth, and enduring the trials of life... And as trials escalate, God will provide the strength one needs in order to endure those trials... As long as that individual has continued to live the life that God has declared to us through His Word...

    Quenching the Spirit of God can be done within one's temple, or body, if that individual is not exercising the will of God's Spirit as that person lives their life... Which is why reliance upon that which is not seen, instead of the that which is seen, is vital to growing in grace, and in knowledge...

    As time continues to pass, and this age draws to a close, we will see this spiritual warfare escalate in such a way it never has... Especially as evil continues to escalate in practice within our world, the saints of God will be, as Christ Jesus declared we would be, "hated by all nations for His name sake."... Preparing for this now, and not wasting precious time by allowing for the physical aspect of life to become more of a priority is essential to understand... Lukewarmness, or a spiritual mindset that Christ Jesus mentions in Revelation chapter 3 described as Laodician can certainly occur within a believers life.. Especially when physical needs are being met...

    Placing our trust in our God, in a world that as a whole does not, is a test for the saints of God... To finish the race one has agreed to run when one accepts the covenant offered by God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ, is one that cannot be accomplished without full reliance upon Him... Especially when Satan knows that His time is short as indicated in Revelation chapter 12... The devil will be allowed by God to increase the persecution upon those who have been washed by the blood of the Lamb... Spiritually cleansed we are by His blood alone... But that is only the beginning of a life long commitment of exercising His will in us, while ridding ourselves of carnal desires that can be quite difficult to overcome at times... Thankfully, our God is merciful... As long as one is striving to overcome, and growing in Christ Jesus, while not neglecting so great a calling, the Good Lord will be with that one till the end...

    With that being said I copied, and want to post something I had written back on January the 6th about the possibility of this occurring on the 27th of this month... Again, whether is does or not remains to be seen... But there is certainly nothing wrong with looking at the possibility of this RV happening, while trying to figure out the coded message Christine L. gave during her press conference last year... Remember folks that is still 2014 as it pertains to the lunar calendar... It will be until the 19th of February... Anyway, here is a portion of what I had posted on the thread entitled "25, 7, 7, 7, 7, G7, G20...

    Remembering that ultimately it is within God's sovereign will as to when this will transpire... But judging by the news, and by once again placing the message the IMF head gave on January 15th 2014 as she addressed the National Press Corp., maybe we will be able to figure it out before it actually transpires...

    Please remember that there are other principalities involved in this this as well... Question is who gives the Rothschilds instruction, and has given them such great influence, and wealth for at 2 plus centuries within this world?... The bible gives us the answer of course... Remembering that God has allowed for it of course... Sin does have consequences... Evil succeeds when sin breeds...

    Here is the post from January 6th below...

    Could the 21st of January, being 28 days beginning from the exact date of 25 Dec. 2014, be just another stepping stone to yet another day to look for 7 days later?... Let me explain... But first look at the video one last time if you would...

    Here is the link... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYmV...r_embedded#t=0

    Here is the link for the Gregorian calendar conversion table to the lunar calendar as well... http://www.hko.gov.hk/gts/time/calendar/pdf/2015e.pdf

    OK!... So we know that after Christine L. declares her last 7, she declares the G7 (again supposed to be G8 at the time of the press conference), and the G20... There was one more 7 declared within her speech once she began to talk about past dates in history that were important within our world's history during this last century... She began with the 100 year anniversary of World War One, and continued with the 70 year anniversary of the IMF... She then said we were to drop the 0 in the number 70... Thus making it 7... This was the 7 that I have not used of yet in my calculations... The previous four 7's were declared after the number 25 was mentioned by Christine L....

    So after counting the 28 days (four 7's) from the 25th of December, we will be once again on the 21st of January... Remembering that the lunar calendar is still on the year 2014.. Which is why I believe that the IMF head mentioned the lunar calendar... Even though it would be 2015 according to the Gregorian calendar, we would still be in the year 2014 as it pertained to the lunar one...

    If we use the final 7 (70 drop the 0), and begin a count from the 21st of January, it would bring us to Tuesday, January the 27th, 2015, or 01/27/2015... According to the lunar calendar it would be 12/8/2014.... Would this be why Christine L. mentioned G7, and G20 in her address?... If we add the 7, and the 20 we of course would have the sum of 27.. Is this the date she was trying to convey for a dramatic change, or event to take place to begin an economic upturn of dramatic proportions?... Time will tell, and I am just trying to make sense of her coded message while using every possible scenario as it pertained to her speech...

    Of course this RV could happen at any moment... But I do believe her speech had more meaning to it than just an address to the National Press Corp about the state of the worlds economy... When she declared that "I normally do as I am told," this was code for those who this message was meant for to, "LISTEN UP!"... IMHO!.... Then she went on to explain it would require compressing numbers through numerology in order to figure it out...

    The 27th of January, if that is indeed the date, is not too far away of course... We are still looking at this month, and of course the year 2014 within the lunar calendar year...

    By the way, lets compress the dates 01/27/2015, and its lunar counterpart 12/8/2014.... Lets begin with 01/27/2015... If we add 1+2+7+2+0+1+5, we have a total of 18.... Ironically, if we add the lunar date of 12/8/2014 (1+2+8+2+0+1+4) we have the same total of 18... Within the esoteric realm, this is a very important number... It is the number 6 three times... (6+6+6)... If inverted these three 6's become (9+9+9)... These three 9's equal 27... If we the 2 plus the 7 we also have the sum of 9... As would adding the 1 plus the 8 in the number 18...

    But what I find curious, if indeed this is THE DATE, is that when these two dates are compressed, we have the number 18... And that we also come up with the same number, 27, when the number 18 is broken down by 6's, and inverted (6+6+6 inverts to 9+9+9)... Is this the 27 that Christine L. was trying to convey as it pertains to the date, and when the inversion formula is used... Allowed within numerology when trying to come to a certain conclusion as it pertains to numbers...

    Oh!.. By the way!... 27 can also be multiplied using numerology... 2x7=14...

    So we see what transpires on the dates 7, 20, 21, and 27 January... What of course is ultimately allowed by our Creator...

    God bless folks, and we shall see as this unfolds... Not a matter of if, but when...

    Peace Be With You All..

    Popeye7

    PS... Folks, I would love for it to come sooner, and certainly would not complain...

    Re: The Grand Illusion...

    Good Morning, and I hope the Good Lord is blessing your day... Let us seek Him in Spirit, and in Truth as we rely on that which is not seen rather than that which is seen... Our Creator will be a Rock, and a Fortress of our inmost being as long as we place His will in our lives first, and foremost..

    Remember folks that February 19th is the end of the lunar calendar year 2014... There was significance in what Christine L. declared in her press conference on January 15th in the year 2014... Even though I have tried to discern what day her hidden message meant, the day I do not know... But it would not surprise me if this went into Feb... We hope for this month though never the less as the news given us by this great news site continues to be given with the utmost of integrity by the fine folks that are a part of this search for the truth in a world filled with deception, and misinformation...

    I would like to share with you a response I had on another site as it pertained to grace, and obedience in accordance to His will.... Let us love one another with the love only our Creator grants us through His Son... He is worthy to be praised, and to glorified, and is as His saints continue to show His great love by our loving Him first, and foremost... And loving one another... Even our enemies!... NOT condoning evil of course, but recognizing the spirit of wickedness that pervades our world... And will continue to be as such until Jesus Christ returns as King of kings, and Lord of lords... Remember that if we have God in us through His Holy Spirit, we have love.... And there is not reason to fear for "perfect love has no fear.".... God bless you all, and below is my response to a fellow brother in Christ I wrote earlier in the week..


    Hello Willem.. Appreciate your commentary...
    One thing that I have noticed during my years of living on God's green earth is the fact that we humans tend to not be as merciful as He is... And this includes believers in Him... We can, as this website tends to show, be very hard on one another to a fault...

    If we look at scripture we realize that God has a plan that goes way beyond what most understand it to be... For example looking at Revelation chapter 20 verses 1- 14, we get a glimpse of what our Creator has in store for humanity...

    While God can restore a person to a fleshly existence as many times as He pleases... As shown within scripture, many have been brought back to life, only to die again at some point while in the flesh... Now those who are raised to eternal life obviously have proven themselves faithful, and will rule, and reign with Christ Jesus for a thousand years as pointed out in Revelation chapter 20 verse 3.. A reward for striving to grow, in grace, and in knowledge while not loving ones physical life even unto death for the sake of the gospel if necessary...

    But we read in Revelation chapter 20 verse 6, and verse 14 about the 2nd death... Obviously God understood, as did our Savior during His fleshly ministry on earth, that not all would respond to His gospel favorably while the devil is allowed by our Creator to tempt mankind with lawless behavior...

    Reading through the gospel, we see the lack of urgency on the part of our Messiah as it pertains to the salvation of humanity, as many times He addressed the masses with parables... If our Savior, and God were so concerned about everyone who has ever lived from that point, the past, and the future during the ages before his imminent return, there would have been more or a sense of urgency at all times...

    If one is of the mindset that once we live, and we reject God, or better yet, have not been subjected to His Truth at all, then how does that make our Creator seem to be?... Not very fair as it pertains to all of mankind, and the salvation that He has given His life for on humanities behalf... As God has pointed out in scripture, He wants all to be saved, and none to perish...

    But there are those who have not been subject to the gospel, therefore are spiritually lost... Even during the time of our Messiah on this earth during the 1st century AD, many died not knowing the Way... And again I point out the lack of urgency on the part of our Messiah to ensure that all would be saved from certain eternal death in the lake of fire...

    But as Revelation chapter 20 verse 5 points out the rest of the dead, who have not known the Way of salvation, will indeed be given that opportunity after the thousand year reign of our Savior, and the saints, who had been faithful up until the point of Jesus Christ's return...

    Those that have rejected our Messiah are spiritually lost because of the confusion that has been propagated throughout the ages by Satan by the utilization of the spirit he represents in every way being Babylon...

    Through this spiritually corrupt system, mankind at this point, and time, is being prepared to be ruled by the man of sin, or the beast... The rule of this false god will represent the spiritual state of mankind due to the continued practice of sinful behavior... And allowing sin to define one's inmost being... Which if one is defined by sin, then that individual can become as an unnatural beast within their nature, or inmost being... The spirit that all persons possess being spiritually corrupted by lawless behavior..

    When Jesus Christ came in the flesh, Satan had a very strong grip on the spiritual state of mankind... His influence was great... Even to the point of the corruption of those who sat in Moses seat.. Many of the Pharisee's had an unnatural, and Satanic hatred for Jesus Christ... This level of evil was called out by our Messiah in that He declared to them that they were children of the devil... Thus when the Holy Spirit was beginning to be poured out by God after the 1st Pentecost following our Messiah's death, and ascension, it wounded the beast... But it did not entirely destroy this beast, or the nature that mankind can have due to the transgression of God's commandments... This destruction of the beast will only occur upon our Messiah's return, and as indicated in Revelation chapter 19...

    This beast is not only an evil that represents the majority of mankind's spiritual nature, but is also a entity that dwells in the bottomless pit... He is referred to as the king of the bottomless pit, and has a name in Hebrew that is entitled Abaddon... Meaning destroyer... He will be unleashed on mankind, and represent the nature that humanity will have adopted as their own due to sinful practices... Which is why he will be worshiped once Satan has given his authority to the beast as Revelation chapter 13 verse 4 points out... Save those who have the Spirit of God within them, for they will be able to discern this fraud..

    See Revelation chapters 9, 13, and 17... The beast rises up out of the sea... The sea represents the nations... When God allows for this spiritual titan to be unleashed, mankind's spiritual state will be as such to embrace this man of sin... Thus this spiritual entity will more than likely possess a physical vessel, and make this individual more than just a mere man... A superman so to speak, and his exploits will be great... And the world will be amazed, and will wonder after this false god, yet will worship him as if he were God... As the man of sin will declare himself to be God in the temple of God as 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 points out... The mystery of lawlessness certainly has dire consequences for defining those who have been deceived by Babylon's spiritual influence... That which Satan the devil represents in every way..

    We must be careful not to be deceived ourselves as Messiah pointed out in Matthew chapter 24 verse 24... The many false prophets out there have, and will be very convincing as the time of our Messiah's return draws near... With the signs, and wonders that will be performed, and allowed to be on display by our God, it will be a test for even the saints, as we await the return of the King of kings, and Lord of lords...

    And that is mankind's only hope... God is allowing us to see the results of us striving to govern ourselves now, and in ages past... We are born into sin as you all well know... We have to be changed from within by the Spirit of God to rid ourselves of the carnal nature that does come so natural for us..

    Which is why God has had a plan from the beginning.. While His kingdom begins as a mustard seed, it will one day encompass the whole earth... His Way will be known... At that point, all who will have ever lived, once brought back to life, will be given an opportunity to live again, and be shown the righteousness that defines our Creator... But blessed are those who have not seen, yet believe.. Their reward will be greater simply because the flesh did not supersede the Spirit of the Living God...

    But after the deception has been dealt with, and the confusion ends, and Satan being thrown into the lake of fired, mankind will have no excuse for their wayward behavior... (See Ezekiel chapter 28 verses 11-19, and Revelation chapter 20 verses 7-11)... Babylon will be destroyed once, and for all.. Which is why in Revelation chapter 18 it declares that Babylon has fallen, has fallen... Satan will be allowed for a period of time to once again confuse the nations as indicated in Revelation chapter 20... Even while our Messiah is ruling from Zion... This final Gog, and Magog battle will be fought during this time... All peoples will be shown at that point in time who truly is King of kings, and Lord of lords with such great power...

    You see, Satan is not deceived... Thus God is using him to show mankind the results of rebellion...

    God has to place in the nations fear through force in order to save them in other words at that point in time... When Jesus returns, obviously not all of mankind will observe His great power, and glory as He will smite the kingdom of the beast as Revelation chapter 19 points out...

    And obviously there were only a few, compared to the many who have, and will live, that were privy to our God shedding His former glory to be made lower than the angels in order to die for our sins, and give us the hope of life through His resurrection... Being the firstborn among many brethren as He had to be in order for mankind to have the opportunity to live eternally with our Creator....

    So while most have lived, and died not really knowing God, there are those who have been faithful during the ages leading up to His return.. These will be a part of the 1st resurrection as Revelation chapter 20 points out... The first fruits which represent the spring harvest... Those who are not a part of this resurrection will be a part of the fall harvest.. A much larger harvest because of the fact that most of humanity have been spiritually deceived... Either because they were not made privy to the saving grace of our God, and Savior, or rejected the Truth because sin was more important to them...

    Thus we have the reason why Paul was inspired to write about the mystery of lawlessness, and its affect on mankind's spiritually well being... Many are called, but few are chosen... God understood that most of mankind would reject Truth, and accept a lie instead... Which is why He declared this within the parable of the sower of the seed... Only a portion of the seed falls on fertile ground...

    Until Messiah returns, the Truth will be superseded by lies.. Simply because that is what mankind is born into... Thus gravitates towards this lawless state... Some worse than others... But God's mercy is greater than any sin that has been repented of... Which is why we as believers must understand that we are indeed scarcely saved, and understand that most are under the sway of the devil...

    Therefore, as Revelation chapter 20 verses 12-15 point out, during the final judgment, those not written in the Book of Life, which our Messiah represents in every way, those will be subject to the 2nd death... From which there is no return... Having rejected God even after having knowledge of Him, and His Way... A willful defiance, rather than just being deceived...

    God bless you all...

    PS... I would like to share video song based on the Psalm number 73....
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIpn...-luu7N&index=7

    Here is another video that depicts what transpires when ungodliness pervades a land with a Psalm performed by the Sons of Korah... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVeF...oTgQdFbE-luu7N

    For those interested here is a little documentary about the Sons of Korah.... Very talented group...

    And God is indeed the One has rescued us from certain spiritual death as Psalm 116 points out... Very well done as to bring forth the anguish, and appreciation the writer of this Psalm declared to His Savior..
