All Must Be Fulfilled . . .

Beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. (Luke 24:27) Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms. (Luke 24:44)


Bible Prophecy

Of the several ways Bible prophecies can be classified, classification as “Direct”, “Indirect”, or “Type” (typical or example) is one of the ways.

A Direct Messianic prophecy identifies the subject of the prophecy as the Messiah (there are more than 20 names for the Messiah in the Old Testament) and then makes a statement about the Messiah.
For example – the promise in Micah 5:2 that Messiah would be born in Bethlehem.

An Indirect Messianic prophecy doesn’t identify the Messiah as the subject, but is recognized as a Messianic prophecy after its fulfillment.
For example – the statement in Hosea 11:1 that Jesus would be brought out of Egypt and back to the land of Israel (Matthew 2:14-15).

A Type Messianic prophecy is an event as an example, as a prophecy that has no direct reference to the future, but illustrates the concept or actions of the Messiah.
For example – the Messiah who was to come was portrayed as the bronze serpent, which was lifted up on a pole (Numbers 21:19; John 3:14), and as the Passover lamb (Exodus 12; John 1:29; 1 Corinthians 5:7; 1 Peter 1:19).

Messianic Prophecies

The following are 47 of the more straight forward Old Testament prophesies about the coming Messiah. The probability that one person could satisfy all these are absolutely minuscule, but, then, here we are . . .

Whether direct, indirect or type prophecies, all were literally fulfilled in the life of Jesus. And, as we look at other prophecies in God’s Word, that perhaps cover other topics and perhaps use highly symbolic prophetic imagery, like Daniel and Revelation, we can expect that they also will be literally fulfilled in a real-life manner.

If you decide to dive deep into Edersheim’s list of 456 Old Testament passages which were considered Messianic by the Rabbis before the time of Christ, you’ll quickly find that in many, many cases, what a Rabbi, over 2,000 years ago, considered a prophecy pertaining to the Messiah is totally incomprehensible to you with no conceivable connection to the Messiah. Many of those ancient Rabbis excelled at reading obscure meanings into passages that don’t appear to be supported by word meanings or context to us.

Prophets – Then and Now

Speaking in the name of God was, and should be, very serious business. God said, “But if any prophet presumes to speak anything in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die.” (Deuteronomy 18:20) I suspect that a fair number of preachers claiming on TV or in YouTube videos that God spoke to them and they are relaying the message to us, will be justly compensated for their deception sometime in the future. “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” (Matthew 24:11)

There are no magic words or phrases or processes that will enable us to dash through God’s plan for our lives, or to super-charge us to a wild success in Christian growth. If you are presented with such a concept, that should be a clear warning to be sure that you’re following God’s Word and not someone’s self-serving schemes.

The Solution

But, what we can be assured of is that if we stick to what’s in God’s Word with natural, normal meanings in context, we have the guidance of the Holy Spirit to find the intended meaning. The Gospel and the tenets of spiritual growth were written to be understood and acted upon by us common people.

Our answers lie in God’s Word since “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:17-17)

. . . for every good work. What good works would that be? Well, maybe these . . . For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)

Look to the LORD and his strength with humility, and seek his face always in prayer.

Complete and thoroughly equipped

. . . the goals for our lifelong Christian growth toward maturity!


On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

This is 2 minutes of Lin Wood on fire speaking at the Tulsa event. Posted by McInerney with the following comments: “for the first time in history in front of a large audience the Obama’s, Clinton’s, Bush’s and Biden’s were called out on child sex trafficking. And there’s nothing they can do about it. When Project Veritas releases the undercover work about child sex trafficking, the entire consciousness of the world will change.”

There were points where 500K were streaming this event.

Lord give protection to all in this fight.

It’s actually really smart of Lin Wood to do this.

Because now…if anyone harms him, it proves him right.

He calls out the House of Windsor, too.

I know it is not a popular opinion, but I still maintain this may be why Harry and Meghan pulled out.

I can’t stand Me-Again. I think she is trashy and acquisitive. BUT, she is a mother. What if she was unaware of the depravity in that family until after she was in it?

I just can’t help but wonder.

POETIC JUSTICE:
IF YOU ARE NOT BUYING COKE PRODUCTS YOUR GETTING EVEN FOR THE HIGHER GAS PRICES YOU ARE PAYING!
Confused? Let me explain.

Not sure if you know the reason Joe Biden cancelled the Keystone Pipeline was because of Warren Buffett and his Burlington Northern Railroad.
Buffet gave Biden a large cash donation. Biden gave Buffet the cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline.

Here is where it gets good. Guess who is one the largest shareholders of Coca Cola? You guessed it Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett’s company. So every time you pull into the pump and pay those extra high Biden gas prices remember by NOT buying Coca Cola products your getting even with Warren Buffet for getting the Keystone Pipeline cancelled!!!
Poetic Justice!

Celebrate General Flynn And Trump’s Protection Of The Second Amendment With These High-Quality Silver Coins

April 17, 2021, 2:00pmby Promoted Post

SteveInCO

LOL.

Write “Ag” in front of a coin dealer and they will wonder what you’ve been smoking; the traditional abbreviation for silver, when, say, labeling a black and white photo or line drawing, is “AR” (AE for copper and AU for gold).

I’d pay attention to the sale price on this (and any other) novelty silver round (not “coin”–it doesn’t bear a denomination).

Wolf Moon

I can see AU and AR, but where does AE come from?

SteveInCO

Aes, which I guess is a Latin word for copper or some item that was made of copper.

SteveInCO

HAH. Serves me right.

According to my quick research, “Aes” is actually one of those BIG copper slugs the Romans used in the very early days before they invented the denarius.

I usually see it written “As” and hear it pronounced like “donkey” so something could be priced at, say, three asses.

Wolf Moon

Fascinating!

Wolf Moon

They’re “keeping it Roman”!

cthulhu

That would be in contrast to Euclid’s pons asinorum, I’d guess.

cthulhu

Apropos of nothing in particular….

Somewhere around here I have a single vox humana organ pipe. The name means “human voice”.

The vox humana is a reed pipe. When on, air passes over a metal “reed” which produces the tone. This is tuned with a little stiff piece of wire that determines how much of the reed vibrates.

At the top is a cap that partially occludes a hole in the pipe. If you run the hole wide open, the pipe sounds like “ohhhhhhhh”; if you run it about 2/3 open, it sounds like “ahhhhhhhh”, and if you close almost all of it, it sounds like “eeeeeeee”. If you’re an organ building with a particularly wealthy client, you can have them purchase three ranks of vox humana pipes and run all three. They are typically run off a wind chest that varies air pressure to provide a tremolo effect.

I got the pipe from my grandfather. He would tune and maintain pipe organs as a side-business for much of his life.

Incidentally, back in the day, I was always looking for someone to release a ROM for pipe organs on the Proteus 2000 platform. They had the horsepower to handle it beautifully, and all the real examples are quietly fading away.

SteveInCO

 If you run the hole wide open, the pipe sounds like “ohhhhhhhh”; if you run it about 2/3 open, it sounds like “ahhhhhhhh”, and if you close almost all of it, it sounds like “eeeeeeee”. “

Linguists very broadly classify vowels as open/close, front/central/back or rounded/unrounded (that last refers to whether the lips are rounded or not). There are MANY gradations of open/close, but that refers to how low/high the tongue is in the mouth when the vowel is pronounced. “eeee” is close, frontal and unrounded, and “aaaaaah” is open. “ehhhh” (either English or the slightly “closer” Italian e) is “mid” and “frontal”

The letter u –when prounounced like in “food” is also close like “eeeee” (written i), but the tongue’s high point is further back in the mouth, it’s considered a “back” vowel, and is rounded. So is a pure “oh” sound (mid/back/rounded).

cthulhu

If I were teaching this to a class, it’d be cool to hand out a vox humana pipe to each.

The pipes contain lead, so you’d need some sort of adapter to blow it (back in the day, we’d just cup our hands into a tube, and not worry about residue so long as we weren’t licking the pipes).

SteveInCO

One should be able to find a piece of software to basically emit a chord of three tones and duplicate any vowel sound (though it would sound like a robot). The third (highest) pitch determines whether it sounds rounded or not.

I’ve experimented with some apps, but unfortunately, they will generate a tone with both (or all three) harmonics at the same volume (as if you were playing an instrument), so I could never get it to work.

cthulhu

Properly equipped, it would be so fun to teach a class on “sound” with a focus on (1) Just what is going on here?; (2) why is a soprano sax not a clarinet (and other questions); (3) synthesized sounds; and (4) real world considerations.

And when you’re talking about such equipment, it should be noted that you can get an oscilloscope Raspberry Pi add-on for under a hundred bucks.

SteveInCO

…and I suppose I could write an app to do the sound generation. Hell, if MIDI lets you do simultaneous sounds AND lets you adjust volume, it should be very very easy, because, of course, MIDI has been around so long the documentation is in cuneiform.

A clarinet, by the way, functions as a stopped pipe (one end closed, the other open), and as far as I know that makes it unique among the major woodwinds. Flutes are open on both ends, oboes and bassoons are a stopped cone (thinner at the mouth end and wider where the horn begins). Thus a clarinet has a standing half wave ( or 3/2 or 5/2 ) and goes lower in pitch than one would expect just based on comparing its size to the others. (Which doesn’t mean it can’t make notes so high that if they aren’t well made they’ll peel paint and burst the blood vessels in your retina or kill small rodents.)

Deplorable Patriot

Flutes are open on both ends? I suppose you could take the tuning cork out of the one end, but effectively that seals the one end. And there is no bell, unlike the others.

SteveInCO

The flautist blows across an opening, instead of sealing off the opening like with a reeded (or double reeded) instrument (where there’s almost no opening at all). Apparently that’s enough to make the difference. In any case I’m repeating what I heard from people who know more about musical instruments than I do. The test, of course, is that a clarinet and a flute are both very approximately the same length but the clarinet can go much lower–or at least, I never heard a flute go that low. (I have personal experience with clarinets but not flutes.)

In an orchestra the clarinetists will typically have both an A and a Bb clarinet but “band class” in grade school typically goes with a B-flat only. But that gets into transposed instruments–as far as I know you never have to worry about transposed vocals, a C is really a C.

Deplorable Patriot

The key on any wind or brass instrument is the low note it can reach. In general, the instruments with the same key designation have the same fingering. I played both flute and oboe using soprano fingering. IIRC, Englishorn uses soprano fingering which is why oboists play it. The sound, though, is lower because the instrument is bigger.

(See, I paid attention when it comes to acoustics.)

Clarinet, alto flute, and the usual sax are all the same fingering. B-flat.

Anything lower than that uses the bass clef and I get lost down there.

SteveInCO

Awesome, I just didn’t know your level of exposure to it.

Actually a clarinet can go well below that “base note.” A generic high-school-band grade Bb clarinet goes down to the E below middle C. At least that’s what the book says, but it’s a Bb clarinet so it’s really a D below middle C. Written Middle C is covering the top three finger holes and the thumbhole. The transposition is done so that the clarinetist can just do that fingering whenever he sees a middle C on the page, regardless of what the clarinet actually puts out. The generic one is Bb, (no I don’t know why not in C–there’s likely some arcane history there), there’s an A [no concert clarinetist is ever without both a Bb and an A, and I met one who confided to me that his private nightmare was accidentally picking up the wrong instrument during a performance and being a semitone off], there are Ebs, and of course clarinets a full octave or even two below the “regular” clarinet, and all of them will show you a middle C in the sheet music for the note that comes out when you close those holes, regardless of what it really is. That puts the actual effort of transposing the music on the composer or arranger, not on the guy who had better be perfect on the stage with no distractions.

That high school band clarinet can play notes from E3 (below the third line below the treble staff) through G6 (four lines abvove the staff), and apparently really advanced players can go higher than that. But you need to drop all of these notes by one semi tone if you’re going to try to match them against a piano because those are the written notes. That’s actually a pretty wide range, all things considered. A piano of course will outrange it.

As a kid dealing with it in band class, of course, none of this made any damn sense, and certainly the names of keys didn’t! (Decades later, I finally got a coherent explanation.)

Deplorable Patriot

Yeah, music education in this country sucks. I learned more from one teacher in middle school, TWO of my five or so voice teachers, and being a member of Symphony Chorus than I ever learned in school. I’ve picked up theory through self study and consider it superfluous to actually making music and learning the art that way. It’s as if the nerds needed their say.

All of that, though, does not make up for honed natural talent. And that varies from human to human.

SteveInCO

The question of “why is this called a Bb clarinet” and “why is it the key of F when you’re playing Bb every time you see a B” and so on are the sorts of things you need the theory to understand, but they weren’t going to explain theory to a 5th grader…so the answers boiled down to “because we say so.”

I’m probably a rare case of someone who could have benefited from a theory for idiots book at that age. The concept of why a key matters was foreign to me (and it comes down to the sequence of tones and semitones in the do-re-mi scale being offset so that some notes fall on semitones).

Theory could be made totally invisible, actually, but no one will ever do it. Replace the A-G scale with semitones with a twelve semitone system, labeled alpha through mu (or 1 through 12, A = 1, Bb = 2, B=3, C=4, D=6 and so on); write them all out as if they have equal value, and composers would just omit the notes the current key doesn’t use. People would never have to worry about the difference between the key of C and the key of D that way. Only the composer would need to know he should not use a certain five of the notes unless he wants an accidental. Players wouldn’t have to remember a key signature, either, though I imagine that’s nearly automatic with enough experience.

To actually *make* music, of course, you can just ignore that stuff and follow directions (i.e., the sheet music), depending of course on your amount of honed natural talent.

Deplorable Patriot

Are you sure you didn’t go to school at Indiana University, ’cause that’s where they number the scale rather than using the Italian syllables.

SteveInCO

I didn’t. And I didn’t know they did that.

Never took a music class at that level.

As I said, it will never happen, because every musician out there would have to relearn how to read music, and relearn keyings, etc.

Deplorable Patriot

Most, if not all, have it in them to do that with some effort.

SteveInCO

Do they number them 1-7 or 1-12 with gaps?

Or do they start with do=C=three and roll back over to 1?

Deplorable Patriot

1-8. Moveable do as I understand it.

America First scored a massive and decisive victory this week:

Tucker’s legendary demographics monologue moved the right wing overton window on immigration.

I’m sure you’ve seen the recent news now regarding MTG on the AF Caucus. Regardless, we’ve made massive gains that have the establishment on alert. Its only going to get uglier as we wage a scorched earth battle against the GOP establishment. The AF caucus draft and it’s platform saw overwhelmingly positive reactions from Populists, Nationalists, & Conservatives. It only gets uglier as we fly over the target and take flak.

Its time for not just America first, but other Populists, Nationalists, and Conservatives to get serious. It’s now or never to deal away with Kevin McCarthy and his mask-wearing controlled Op allies.

If you don’t like what you’re seeing from the GOP, perhaps it’s your turn to run for office.

Yeah… I wonder… what could it be… I mean everything is so normal these days.

It’s not like TPTB have turned our society into a sexual freak show. It’s not like our borders are being flooded with people who have no intention of becoming Americans, and being ‘seeded’ throughout the country.

It’s not like TPTB have declared war and open-season on white people, or anything like that.

It’s not like the current illegitimate government used the Constitution (the real one) to light one of Hunter’s bongs. You know Hunter, he’s the acting President’s crack-smoking bagman, a.k.a. Foot-jobber.

And the acting President himself, presented as the ‘leader of the free world’, can barely speak a coherent sentence.

So everything’s pretty much completely normal.

It’s not like the most powerful nation on earth was taken over by a blatantly fraudulent election theft, and it’s not like the criminals who did it are being very subtle about their totalitarian intentions…

And it’s not like the FED is printing money like it’s a tribute to the Wiemar Republic. And it’s not like people are paying more than a lot of houses cost when I was a kid, for an ethereal bit of blockchain on the Interwebs, or millions of dollars for garbage ‘art’ like Jacko’s first Tweeter tweet, practically anything to escape the looming fiat currency disaster.

Financial bubbles are everywhere.

And it’s not like everybody knows that China-virus is being used as a weapon to usher in global totalitarian control.

And it’s not like there is any legitimate lawful authority in charge… in fact, there is no legitimate authority, anywhere now. It’s like the wild, wild west, except there is no Sheriff, only bandits.

So it’s a great question… why is everyone so freaked out?

Seems like everything oughta be serene… whatareya, a buncha conspiracy theorists or somethin’? 😂 🤣 😂 🤣 😂

Saturday morning, I was off in the wilderness on top of a hill with these guys — http://www.baemclub.com/crkcallarchive/apr21nl.pdf . It was a glorious day, which is quite important because they keep saying they meet in the clubhouse (which has an old wood-burning iron stove) but actually meet on the parking lot. When it is foggy, misty, cold, windy — practically the definition of Bay Area weather — there is a world of difference between the two. Today, I was comfy in a t-shirt in the parking lot.

Dwight Giles attended with his new knee (and had also had a stroke) and looked good. The old medieval guild system was “apprentice” (needs supervision); “journeyman” (can go somewhere alone and do well enough); and “master” (can train, plan, supervise, teach, and attest). The club has a handful of master machinists or engine builders, and one grandmaster. Very many of the senior machinist’s anecdotes go, “I set it up in this way, and got this result, then went to Plan B and asked Dwight.” If I wanted to find someone who knew more about machining than Dwight, I’d have to have a worldwide competition.

He attributes the stroke to abrupt changes in his blood-thinner regimen as directed by the surgeons who replaced his knee. Such is the quality and perception of his thinking post-stroke, he seems to have bounced through it well. Just as a random aside, Dwight doesn’t do masks.

I was also very pleased to see the infamous “Dr. Bob” in attendance. He is an inspiration to me in the way he is always learning, inquisitive, and delighted by new knowledge. It’s infectious — I’ve been to places where he’d been in years previous, and people were asking where he was — like his personality was the most memorable thing they could recall amidst all the skill, workmanship, technology, and execution from the prior year.

One person in attendance was a long-time member who is an expert in building magnetos…..and lives in Wisconsin. He drove in with wife and dog for family reasons, and decided to drop in.

It was a great meeting. We had the usual players to keep the action popping and it really hit me how much I’d missed doing winter meetings indoors.

Hope it’s contagious…going without masks. (Dwight)

WHO THE HELL IS SHARING LEGALLY PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION WITH FACEBOOK?

Deplorable Patriot

We need more people speaking up like this.

Valerie Curren

Yes!!!

Concerned Virginian

My suspicion is it’s the CDC that’s giving legally-protected HIPAA information to FB.

An example scenario:
Joe Public goes to a Walgreens and gets the Pfizer shot.
Walgreens must register the date of the procedure, the vial used and the information on the vial, plus Joe Public’s information, with the CDC.
The CDC puts these items of information into various databases.
The CDC likely shares the information with the NIAID, for “statistical purposes”.
The CDC likely has an “arrangement” with FB to release certain information — like Joe Public getting the shot and the date it was given.
Since Joe Public has a FB account, FB has an algorithm that puts the “alert” on his FB page, urging him to “frame” his shot or to “update his information” (except that FB already HAS the updated information — they want him to make it public — thus creating a backdoor “Vaccine Passport” for Joe Public).
The head of the CDC is Dr. Rochelle Walensky.
The head of the NIAID is Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Valerie Curren

Diabolical, 4th amendment violation (search & seizure?)

Concerned Virginian

And, if Joe Public is on Medicare, that agency will be given his “vaccination information”, and it will be put on his EMR (Electronic Medical Record).
Ditto if Joe Public has Medicaid.

Concerned Virginian

Which, of course, begs the question, assuming that Joe Public’s “vaccination information” is being shared among Federal, and also likely state and local health agencies (by law and regulations):
Who negotiated the “arrangement” between, for example, the CDC and FB, to harvest the “vaccination information” and gave permission to have Joe Public contacted?
Who gets “a piece of the action” (monetary) in terms of the “arrangement”, and how much?
In other words, does “our favorite Zuck” get paid every time, say, the CDC gives “vaccination information” about Joe Public which FB then uses to contact him?

kalbokalbs

“Who”? Perhaps the details are buried in the latest “Covid” stimulus legislation.

MAGA Mom

The phones are listening … how many times have we heard stories about having conversations with the phone in the rooms and advertisements pop up with products discussed in the conversation?

Another possibility is if they had the phone with them when they went to get their shot and they had “location” on, then it dinged that they were at a shot location (a number of shot locations are doing shots exclusively)

If they searched anything about it, mapped to the location, included it in a gmail email or an outlook email or an outlook appointment or a phone calendar appointment … all accessible and sellable.

Or maybe HIPPA is being violated and info sold. IDK but our electronics are not private so many ways it could have happened

Valerie Curren

yep!

Aubergine

The “phone is listening” thing has happened to ME directly, many times. Also, if I speak aloud a search I am about to do on my laptop, it is often the first “drop-down” I get after tying a few letters, even complex sentence searches. They ARE listening.

Concerned Virginian

And Siri / Alexa / Echo, and their “add-on” devices. They all listen.

SD has a decent article about the intelligence community using our online support of other patriots to target us. ‘Data breaches’ are a way they may be gaining our data illegally.

He uses that as a springboard to tell us not to get depressed and frightened, but to realize we are the majority.

I personally would like some concrete steps we can take if we are targeted.

Off the top of my head:

If you are targeted shout it from the rooftops. Publicize it as fast and as widely as you can.

Have a list of sites that you or your friends/family can get the word out about the targeting.

If you are detained, resolve not to speak unless you have a lawyer present.

If some agency knocks at your door just to talk with you and without a warrant, don’t answer.

Record every interaction if you can, and have others record.

I’m sure there are a lot of other things we can do…

Critical Race Theory explained.

https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/critical-race-theory-fight/?utm_campaign=imprimis&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=121791582&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9JylSphjz0TUlmYgcBLoD22hCuEvsoUAD3qBpJzQUD8V2F_DLVN4fJx6h054aU2RDxZ3araZ44XuUt-Nxe7g7j0Pq70Q&utm_content=121790319&utm_source=hs_email

A short but thorough analysis with some tools for fighting back:

“No longer simply an academic matter, critical race theory has become a tool of political power. To borrow a phrase from the Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci, it is fast achieving “cultural hegemony” in America’s public institutions. More and more, it is driving the vast machinery of the state and society. If we want to succeed in opposing it, we must address it politically at every level.

Critical race theorists must be confronted with and forced to speak to the facts. Do they support public schools separating first-graders into groups of “oppressors” and “oppressed”? Do they support mandatory curricula teaching that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism”? Do they support public schools instructing white parents to become “white traitors” and advocate for “white abolition”? Do they want those who work in government to be required to undergo this kind of reeducation? How about managers and workers in corporate America? How about the men and women in our military? How about every one of us?

There are three parts to a successful strategy to defeat the forces of critical race theory: governmental action, grassroots mobilization, and an appeal to principle.”

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

Bakocarl – thank you for a wonderful view into the Messianic prophecies.

I share your apprehensions about modern day prophets.

Having been in charismatic and non-denominational churches where prophecies flew about right and left, and seen none of them come about, I have much as much wariness and caution about contemporary prophecies as I do about political predictions, and mainstream broadcast and print media. I’m a Doubtin’ Debbie Downer across the board.

But, it was due to open up for Silicon Valley lost its’ first blood lab and now another is rising up in its’ place with all the bells and whistles of the one that was closed.

Most “predictions” were wrong. those that were even remotely on track were so vague as to offer little to no validation of any theory. Anyone looking at the graph ot temp, and just drawing a continuation would have gotten just as accurate predictions.

So we aren’t the only ones with idiots continuously positing dates that constantly slip!

Valerie Curren

Does that “we” refer to Q-peeps or decoders or what?

SteveInCO

We as a movement have a number of bullshitter “it’ll happen on this day” people, including John Solomon, amongst us, and it’s something we have to deal with (since too many people insist on giving them credence).

Valerie Curren

Like all the Christian “prophets” who have made a cottage industry out of predicting Jesus’ 2nd coming. & that when scripture explicitly says “no man will know the day or the hour” which by definition Must negate Every such prognostication!!! 🙂

SteveInCO

Yep. I seem to recall something about “like a thief in the night” too.

And yet millions believed Howard Camping, every time.

Every generation of Christians, including the first, had its people who thought it would be in theiur lifetimes, and I recall reading somewhere that a majority do today. I wouldn’t be surprised if that were always true.

Valerie Curren

I’ve said similar to my husband a number of times. But as a Believer it seems we are Supposed to believe in the “imminent” return of Christ, a kind of hope that lingers. The second half of Hebrews chapter 11 “the faith chapter” comes in here, all those who died without seeing what they believed yet come into existence. Quite the challenging chapter!

SteveInCO

There are enough statements in Mark (some quoted in the other synoptic gospels) to the effect of “the axe is at the foot of the tree” and even ones about people listening to him would still be alive, that I can understand the first Christians thinking it was imminent.

Valerie Curren

Agreed 🙂
