United We Stand, Divided We Fall

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. Mark 3:24-25

Known as “The Great American Eclipse”. It will be the most viewed eclipse in history and it has certainly carried with it the most speculation. On August 21st a 70 mile wide shadow of darkness will slice the nation in half. This should be pretty straight forward even for those of you who don’t much care for the language of metaphor. This is the first total eclipse exclusive to the United States since the nation’s inception that extends from coast to coast.

O Jerusalem, and Matters of Solomon

Dear Reader,

As I set out to cover any staggering confluence, my intent is to condense it in a way that is accessible to many. I recognize how foreign this approach to viewing reality can be. The ever increasing Biblical metaphors in current events are so complex that no amount of human intellect or imagination could come close to recreating them. I use repetition in hopes of solidifying concepts and bringing to the forefront relevant information that may have escaped you under the torrent.

This post is not structured in order of importance. Some of the more profound aspects are embedded further along where their gravity is dependent on the preceding foundation. This is more of an ebook than blog post. We simply cannot do justice to any of the matters covered within apart from expanding our purview. If traffic was our aim this would be broken into 10 posts. The only concern we have is that you understand this information. Many of you are well aware that the way of the internet is to over promise, under deliver and maximize clicks for ad revenue. Our aim is the opposite, perhaps equally as exhausting but more akin to a good workout versus incessant mosquito bites.

 

My role is to connect the pieces and lay them before you in the clearest way I can. Your job is to overcome the noise that is competing for your attention. Have you ever wondered why we don’t have ads? You don’t need any more obstacles in wrestling with information that is difficult enough. We will be pulling a lot of information from previous posts, strict attention to detail will serve you well. To exclude them would disqualify new readers and assumes a level of retention none of us possess. If you are anything like me you simply cannot recall a large portion of what we have covered before. I will reread a post a few days after publishing realizing I had already forgotten many significant facts. It is impossible to keep all this information sorted out.

Resist the innate propensity to compartmentalize. Don’t cling to ideology or attempt to pigeon hole one thing or another as good or bad. The world we inhabit is far more complex than the divide and conquer narrative would have you believe. Perhaps nobody embodied complexity more than Solomon. He loved God and was loved by God yet is seen by many believers as a type of Antichrist. Types and shadows shed much light on the human dynamic, man’s free will in light of a sovereign God.

I’ve always been up front as to where I stand on Trump. I like him, I do not view him as a savior nor do I care about his shortcomings. Like everyone he has moments of nobility mixed with moments of degeneracy. There is no agenda here apart from sharing fingerprints of God’s glory revealed to me. Trump just happens to be a prophetic buffet who makes me laugh more than anyone on this planet. My opinions about his nature and policy have zero significance in light of why he is in office and his appointed role to usher in the final act. I wish more people would distance themselves from their affection or disdain of the man. He is playing his part and even he is not fully aware of what that is.

TIME – The End is near, deal with it! The TIME of the end and Trump is leading us closer to the last trump.

This post will have chapter numbers so you can resume where you left off more easily. I am personally blown away with certain elements contained within and I believe you will be as well. May the One who formed you in your mother’s womb and appointed your sliver history to be at the epoch of the age grant you wisdom and knowledge as you seek out His mysteries. I hope this blesses you in the same way many of you have blessed me.

Days of Noah – Tebow, Rainbows, Noah and Jared

We see through a glass darkly and search out the head scratching stuff. Undeniable themes and patterns emerge through seemingly ordinary events. A convergence of shadows manifest under our noses, hidden in plain sight for those with eyes to see. We are given pieces of a puzzle that speak to order. There is a power in this world who thrives on chaos and disorder but those who are wise understand. Amidst the madness providence whispers, available to all through an act of the will. Despite whatever chaos may arise the order that has existed before existence itself will remain.

1958 Western: A Man Named Trump Promises to Build a Wall in Texas

I am the only one. Trust me! I can build a wall around your homes that nothing can penetrate. – Walter Trump, Trackdown “The End of The World”

Truth is stranger than fiction and we don’t believe in coincidence. Where many might insert this word used to obfuscate providence, we view it as an invitation. We have yet to find any case devoid of treasure. There is no word for coincidence in the Hebrew language and this was no oversight.

This has nothing to do with Trump love or Trump hate. If you must know, I have a personal affinity for Trump and I voted for him. He was elected because God raises up kings and deposes them. Only a fool places their faith in another individual. He could be a great President or he could be a disaster. Nothing about how he performs changes God’s sovereign time table.  Read More

Walking On The Moon

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3

The day is short, and the task is great, and the workmen are sluggish, and the reward is much, and the Master of the house is urgent – Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers)

It would not be until Jerusalem was returned to Israel that man would walk on the moon. The light of the night has been seen by all and worshiped by many. For the first 99.2% of human history man would gaze and wonder at the moon, in the last .8% of human history man would walk on it. The sun and the moon are celestial clocks. Day turns to night and another day dawns. Our Father who created time has left discernible patterns of His hand throughout history. Read More

Flocks And Fire

I will worship toward Thy holy temple, and praise Thy name for Thy loving kindness and for Thy truth, for Thou hast magnified Thy word above all Thy name. Psalm 138:2

download-18

As Israel was on fire, its sibling country experienced fires of its own. A fire which left behind a fragment of God’s word. You best believe the content of this page was anything but random. Call it a harbinger or call it a message, perhaps as one that would be carried by a pigeon. Pigeon Forge burned but what was discovered soaked in water under a park bench should not be overlooked.

Amos

 

If a trumpet is blown in a city, are the people not afraid? Does disaster come to a city, unless the LORD has done it? For the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets. The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy? Amos 3:6-8

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. 

During the Olympics we were in the month of Av on the Hebrew calendar. The month of Av is the month of Simeon. Simeon means “one who hears” or “listening”. Simone Biles and Simone Manuel have become media sensations after their gold medal performances. Both women are professing Christians.

America’s 240th – Philadelphia to Emmaus

 

This is about birthdays and birthing. Labor pains precede birth. For those of us who embrace reality it is getting sad. “Proud to be an American”. Proud of what you ask? Pride. It reminds me of Bob, “I sail, I’m a sailor, I sail…” Bob was so proud. He was strapped to the sailboat “he sailed, he was a sailor”.

Anyway, happy birthday America. Perhaps we will see 241, or even 250. Either way, this clown show will not continue much longer. The coming transition is obvious and among the many signs comes exhortation. That is what I found here. For those who comprehend the coalescence of intricacies, and have ceased from kicking the goads, you will find this uplifting.

America’s 240th year has a synchronicity with Israel that has never before occurred. Founding fathers, churches in Revelation and the theme of being brought down have pervaded our news cycle in the last couple months. We have covered many of these in detail previously and what follows speaks to this in a far more direct manner. The synergy of time and distance as it relates to Israel and America points to a conclusion. Not much longer…standing on the edge of the abyss days can feel like months.

NFL Draft – Eli Apple Joins Eli in The Big Apple

 

I’m going to cover a few things that jumped out to me regarding the draft which directly connect to what we have been reviewing. The second half will be a deeper look at drawing out the Biblical relationship to these names with the understanding The Most High foreknew every name and the order in which each person would be drafted. If you are lost there will be links where you can take a detour to establish a better foundation before proceeding. It was my intention to unwind and watch the NFL draft, an ambitious undertaking for one who has found diversion increasingly illusive.  Read More
