    Like Sands In The Hour Glass... So Are The Days of Our Physical Lives...

    Good Day Folks...

    I am reminded of my great grandmother's home back in the 70's, and this soap opera being on as they prepared their fine home cooking... When we look back at how quickly time does pass, we realize our mortality while in the flesh... But of course our hope is not in the flesh, but the new body those who are in Christ Jesus will be given at the blowing of the 7th, and final trumpet signaling the return of the King of kings, and Lord of lords...

    Hope all are well... So sorry for your loss plowboy... She lived such a long life... The Lord gives us 3 score, and 10 years, or 70 years in this fleshly vessel on average... So she, as well as your family, was blessed with 28 extra years of life... We take comfort in the fact that we will see them again...

    Praying for our friends Shiela, and Subby as well... So many of my friends have health related problems... The prayer list is long, and for various reasons..

    I wanted to make a quick comment about the situation in Iraq... An observation that I, and others have brought up, and is the reason why I believe that there has always been a set date for the monetary of Iraq's currency to occur...

    As we have been alerted in the past, the RV, or RI was to occur, but then suddenly a crisis arose... Now we find Iraq in the midst of finally taking care of business, yet there are so many laws to be passed before it is to transpire... So what happened?... If all was prepared to occur in years past, were these laws already passed?... And if so, why are they to be passed again?...

    Whether one chooses to believe their has always been predetermined date for this that only very few know of is irrelevant... Time has proven this to be so... The ones who are allowed by our Creator to control how the monetary policy is controlled in all nations care not about how much time, resources, or monies are clearly wasted in this endeavor, and what is ultimately their goal... Maliki was either in on the scheme, or he was allowed to obstruct PERIOD... And I emphasize allowed... This former prime minister's power was granted to him.. He could have been dealt with very easily long ago...

    Look at the US monetary policy, and the waste that transpires in our country... And yet still we are the head as it concern being the reserve currency of the world... This fiat system has been going on for a very long time, and in order to make our government's concern for being fiscally irresponsible look legitimate, articles, and news will address the issue... Yet, the reality is nothing is being done, because it is a game... It is a game folks that is being played, and in the end will fulfill the prophetic Word of God, and will lead to a One World Order, and the reign of the final anti-Christ, or man of sin...

    Who will it effect the most short term?... Those they are not at the helm, or behind the scenes running this facade that some have referred to as "OZ."... So we play the game as we have invested in the dinar of Iraq, and what I believe that God has allowed for us to see as a reality of how the world truly works... Many pawns that are being used, and those that have been discarded once these individuals are no longer of use... Whether it be through death, faking their deaths, and allowing them to be exiled to another country to live out the rest of their lives...

    I certainly hope that we come to realize that this world has its foundation on lies, and deception... Although we are in the world, believers in Christ Jesus have to constantly on guard as it concerns the affairs of this present evil age, and ages past... Even while Jesus was on this earth in the flesh, He also referred to the age as wicked...

    But as we come near to the end of this present evil age, God is allowing for nation such as ours to adopt, and practice what HE considers abominations without totally destroying the nation itself... Why?... Because we humans as a whole continue to make the same mistakes, and never learn from our immoral past... So, as was prophesied long ago, God Almighty is allowing for the world's inhabitants to increase in ungodly behavior in order to serve as an example of what occurs when we are basically left to our own devices... So what we are, and will continue to experience is as it was during the days of Noah... Both before, and after the flood that destroyed the majority of mankind save 8 persons...

    But the reality is we are not necessarily doing this without spiritual influence... But as lawlessness, and rebellion increase, we are made subject to spiritual entities that use us, while entertaining themselves as mankind destroys itself...

    Technology, or human advancement will never change the spirit that exists in every human being that God has allowed to live... Sin has, and always will bring forth sorrow, destruction, and ultimately death... People have been duped into believing that scientific advancement would be the answer, but now we see why God withheld this from ever occurring before this pre-appointed time frame... The heart of man is deceitfully wicked, and we do not realize it most of the time... If we would stay away from sinful practices, the need for scientific advancement would not be necessary...

    Mankind naturally gravitates towards sinful behavior because we are born into sin, or conceived in sin as Psalm 51 points out... It truly takes the Spirit of the Living God to open our eyes to our transgressions, and grant us the help needed to overcome that which hinders us from growing in grace, and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ...

    I did not write this out of disrespect for anyone's opinion... But the reality is the majority of mankind is being used by those who hate our very existence... These spiritual principalities only have success within an unrepentant world... Which is why the coming of Messiah is our only hope, and that hope is not in vain my friends...

    Anyway, have a great day... This will come soon enough... But please let us remember the importance of being not just physically prepared for it, but more importantly spiritually... Let wealth not become an idol, and cause us to fall away into a spiritual state where we are left wanting, poor, and naked... It is so easy to be manipulated when the focus is on the flesh instead of Spirit... As Paul emphasized in Romans chapter 8, those who rely on the flesh will die spiritually... But those whose focus is the Spirit of God, and the Truth pertaining to what true salvation means, nothing will shake them... For eternity will indeed be theirs as our Father wants so much for the children that He gave His life for to experience forevermore...

    Keeping it real, and Peace be with you all..

    Hello Folks...

    So with each, and every day that passes, we draw nearer to the pre-appointed time of the Iraqi dinar increasing in value... Looking at this venture, and the relationships that have been shared on the dinar website, many will look back on this time with fondness... Realizing that the increase in value of this currency compares nothing to the friendships, and even more importantly, the faith in God Almighty through the Lord Jesus Christ that has been on display over the years... Money, while helping pay the bills, will never fill an empty heart, or inmost being that all human beings have been granted by our Creator while we were being fashioned within our mother's wombs...

    Looking forward to the kingdom of the Most High God should remain our ultimate hope for a world that is dire need of being spiritual cleansed from the evil that pervades it.. The only solution to this is the return of the ONE who was willing to die for our sins in a most horrible... Humbling HIMSELF while yet having the ability to call down legions of willing angels of HIS to destroy those who sought His death... Yet knowing there was no other WAY to show mankind the love HE alone defines in every WAY... Showing such perfect, and great love to yet an undeserving, and sin filled world in order that all would be saved from certain eternal death... There is only ONE GOD made manifest through the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit... And through HIM we have life, and a void that only HE can fill in order that our lives while in the flesh will be fulfilling, and lived for the proper purpose...

    With God all the former things will be abolished, and there will be no more tears... For as 1 Corinthians chapter 15 points out the sting of death will no longer be, and a new heavens, and new earth will exist... And the knowledge of the Lord God will fill the whole earth all of those created in the image of God will indeed enjoy the perpetual joy that is a direct result of HIS WAY... The TRUTH that brings forth liberty, and sets one free from the spiritual bondage all of mankind has been born into... Save Adam, and Eve, who sinned by were created of course, and the ONE MAN Jesus Christ, WHO is God, and whose FATHER is GOD... The first fruit of first fruits, who is the perfect LAMB of GOD, and the only ONE who could have been sacrificed in order that we might born again from our former spiritual dead states... Remember that God is not the author of confusion, and the devil is... There is no other WAY to attain salvation as our Heavenly Father has deemed it from before the foundation of the world...

    As time continues to pass, remember that our time on this earth in the limited earthen vessel is only temporary... As is the result of the monetary increase... There are sinister schemes that our Creator God is going to allow to come to fruition as HIS prophetic WORD points out... Perilous times will indeed come for the earth, and the persecution of the saints will also increase on a more global scale... Preparing SPIRITUALLY for this is how we can use the time wisely as we near the end of this age... Coming out of Babylon, or this Satanic system that permeates our world is vital... Realizing, as our Savior does, and did while in the flesh, that this is a direct result of the Mystery of Lawlessness...

    Sin, and the practice thereof has caused confusion, deception, or basically Babylon to succeed... Allowing for Satan to sit upon many waters, or the nations, and as a whole prepare for the introduction of the 7th head, or kingdom that has ten horns... These ten horns will represent 10 kings who will be under the dragon's dominion until Satan grants his authority to the beast, or man of sin as Revelation chapter 13 verse 4 points out... This 8th king, as written of in Revelation chapter 17, once given this authority from the devil, will declare himself to be God while sitting in the temple of God... He will be given the reigns to rule over these 10 kings, and they will go forth, and destroy that which was a result of the world being drinking of the wine of the fornication that Babylon represents... It will be all in the name of a form of righteousness, yet not of the Lord God... And if it were possible even the elect who are alive at that point in time could be deceived... Which is why the Spirit of God, as a direct result of the important emphasis of our relationship with HIM, is vital so as to discern this coming deception in the years to come...

    IMHO the 7 year tribulation will begin in the year 2033, and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ will occur in 2040... As scripture points out in Matthew chapter 24, no man, nor even the angels in heaven, no the hour in which the Lord Jesus Christ will come... But that does not mean we cannot discern the year... Even the devil knows his time is short as declared in Revelation chapter 12...

    Remember that Noah was given the year that the Lord God would flood the earth when God HIMSELF declared to the man that HE was giving mankind 120 years to either repent, or suffer the consequences for not doing so... Well, we know the story, but what is important for us to understand was that while Noah was given the year, he did not know the hour that the flood would transpire...

    This is key to understanding prophecy, as it pertains to our time in history, especially in light of the fact that our Lord Jesus Christ declared that it would be as in the days of Noah... And even though the year was known, Noah's faith was not just based on knowing the year of the flood taking place... But on the action taken by Noah up until that point in time, as this man prepared for this imminent flood, while warning the inhabitants of the earth of the result of not repenting in accordance to their Creator's will...

    What I am trying to say is that sin can blind us, and even if one may understand the Truth at some point in their lives, this faith can be lost, and no longer believed if one allows iniquity to dominate their lives... It is a spiritual battle in every respect folks, and faith does require action on our parts... The preaching of God's gospel of repentance through His Son Jesus Christ not only serves as a warning to the world... But to those of us who understand, and have believed on HIM, it serves as a reminder of God's plan of salvation, and WHO we must place our hope in... This world is passing away, and fleeting... The return of Jesus Christ as the Prince of peace, Lord of lords, and KING of kings is mankind's only hope for survival...

    And we saints place our faith in knowing that the redemption of our bodies at the blowing of the 7th, and last trumpet, whether we are dead in Christ Jesus, or alive at His coming, will transpire at the appointed time... See 1 Corinthians chapter 15, and 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 for just a few chapters as proof of this... And our hope is not futile in the slightest dear friends...

    God bless, and take care...

    Re: Like Sands In The Hour Glass... So Are The Days of Our Physical Lives...

    Hello All You Fine People's on Dinar Updates..

    So there are those that are going to question, and not believe that God has a pre-appointed time for all things... Can He make adjustments as the moments of our time become history?.. Absolutely!... A great example of this is during the time of King Hezekiah of the kingdom of Judah...

    In Isaiah chapter 38, 2 Chronicles chapter 32 verse 24, and 2 Kings chapter 20 God's Word indicates that King Hezekiah became ill and was going to die.. The Lord God declared to this king through Isaiah the prophet to get his affairs in order, and prepare for this event... This king prayed to God, and ask the Lord for a reprieve, and God granted it to Hezekiah as scripture indicates... King Hezekiah was granted an extra 15 years of physical life... But what is interesting is who was born during this overtime session of King Hezekiah's life..

    His son Manasseh would assume the throne after his death at the tender age of 12, and would become one of the, if not the most wicked kings that ever ruled Judah... In the end this king ruled for 55 years, and 2 Kings chapter 21 does not paint a pretty picture of his reign.. But in the end, after having been taken into captivity, King Manasseh cried out to God in heartfelt repentance... But sadly, the damage was already done...

    So there are times that we need to be careful for what we hope for... God knows the heart of man, and because we are born into sin (again see Psalm chapter 51), we are inclined to gravitate towards sin more so than the righteousness that defines our Great Creator... Which is why we need His Holy Spirit, or the HELPER, to endure this life in these physical bodies in which the spirit God has granted us now resides... Being mortal certainly has its limitations obviously, and had our original parents, Adam, and Eve not sinned in the Garden, or sin not occurred period, death would not be a problem for us... We would have access to the Tree of Life, and all would be well...

    But our Wonderful Father in heaven knew from the beginning that at some point we would give into temptation and succumb to transgressing His Word... He had planned from the foundations of the world to give of His Son for our spiritual salvation because of this... The Lord God is not confined by time as we are...For HE knows the end from the beginning as His Word points out... Which is why He has always had a pre-appointed time for all things to be fulfilled... And although God allowed for King Hezekiah to live an extra 15 years, it did not interfere with the time frame HE has set forth for mankind to be granted salvation on HIS terms...

    After this time is fulfilled, judgment will come as Revelation chapter 20 declares... Those not written in the Lambs Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire where the beast, false prophet, and Satan will have been judged... But again scripture has given us understanding that at this point, only the beast, false prophet, and Satan are judged to be burned up in the lake of fire... See Revelation chapters 19 and 20 for a glimpse into what will surely transpire...

    We have to understand that although God could control us to the point of exercising HIS will in our lives without our consent, that is not how our Creator desires to implement HIS WAY into our lives... He wants us to want HIM, and desire to do HIS will... Our Father will guides us with HIS SPIRIT, but ultimately we have to make that choice to want to live righteous lives... Although we are born into sin, and are more inclined to conduct ourselves in a lawless fashion naturally, the need to overcome iniquity has been made available to those God has called for HIS purposes...

    This gift of salvation is never earned of course, but once given to us through HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, the process of working it out with fear, and trembling begins... One can forsake the WAY once granted this most precious of gifts, and as the book of Hebrews and Jude point out, it would have been better had one not known the way, or made that commitment to God if one falls away into such a state of sinful behavior once more...

    There are sins that one does in ignorance, and there are ones that are exercised in a willful fashion... We have to be very careful not to fall into the category of the latter because one is held truly accountable for those willful sins once having been revealed that it is wrong to conduct oneself in that fashion.. The TRUTH does indeed bring us out of spiritual bondage that is a result of sinful practices, but we have to ensure we do not trample the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ by abusing the grace, and mercy shown us through the blood shed on the cross on our behalf...

    While one can be forgiven for willful sins, that does not mean there is not punishment involved... The account of King David was given to us as an example of what can happen when one allows for a spiritual falling from the righteousness that defines our GREAT GOD... Without HIM one does live a life of futility, and for that person there is not hope of eternal salvation from death everlasting...

    Not convinced of God's understanding of the future, and HIS ultimate control of the affairs of HIS creation?... Read Deuteronomy chapters 31, and 32 if more proof of this is necessary... For the Eternal ONE knew, and prophesied that Israel would forsake HIM, and sin against GOD to the point of having to be vomited out of the land HE had granted the twelve tribes of Israel...

    And until Jesus Christ returns, this is the case... All twelve tribes will not be exiled unto the nations until the return of Messiah... PLEASE remember this!... As God's Word points out there will be a great deception that will transpire with lying signs, and wonders... HE will allow for this for a few reasons...

    One is to test the saints that are HIS in order to show where we are at from a spiritual standpoint... Remember Christ Jesus declared in Matthew chapter 24 verse 24 that this deception will be so great that if it were possible, even the elect could be deceived... Remember folks that the supernatural can be performed by that which represents our Creator God, or those of the creation whose intent is evil... But of course as our Omnipotent God allows ultimately...

    So is our hope in what can be accomplished with the monetary wealth that this currency increase will provide?... Or is it in the SPIRIT of the LIVING GOD?!.... Which has more power friends, and WHO will deliver us spiritually in the end?... Remember that all that pertains to the flesh is weak, and is subject to death... Especially for those who rely upon the creation for deliverance... For although one may lose their physical life for the sake of the gospel, those who are in Christ Jesus have nothing to fear...

    For eternity with God Almighty is without question for those written in the Lamb's Book of Life... If we have to lose our physical lives, let us make sure we are doing so for the right reason as it pertains to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ... Remember that Jesus Christ declared to Pilate that HIS kingdom is not in any way of this present evil age... And until the blowing of the 7th, and last trumpet of God's angel, this will indeed be the case as scripture points out in 1 Corinthians chapter 15, 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, and Revelation chapters 11, and 19 to name a few...

    So in the overall scheme of things, and while keeping it in perspective, this monetary gain, while a blessing, is meaningless... God bless you folks, and take care... Have a wonderful day!... Praise the Lord God Almighty!.. For HE is good, and HIS love endures forever... WHY?... Because GOD is love...

    Popeye7

    PS.. So while God did add 15 years to Hezekiah's reign, and there was relative peace, and prosperity during this time frame, did HE take away some of those undeserved peace filled days from a period of time at some point yet future?... What about the reign of King Josiah?... While this king certainly sought to please God throughout His life, Josiah's reign came to an abrupt end at the hand of the King of Egypt... Some would surmise this as it was just HIS time to die, but we must remember that God has an ultimate time frame for all things to be accomplished... While the ETERNAL ONE can tinker with what goes on within this pre-appointed time frame, I for one do not believe GOD will allot for more time within HIS grand plan of salvation...

    Just something to ponder!...
