Let us NOT forget!

Two previous posting on this site concerned the dismantling of the former Yugoslavia. Instigated by a Europe that calls itself a Union but has ambitions of becoming an Empire.

Anti-Semitism is once again rearing its ugly head throughout Europe. While the Catholic church appears to be simultaneously organizing and supporting a neo-Nazi rally in Austria? Earlier last month ( May 2018) an event, held near the town of Bleiburg in southern Austria, commemorated the death of thousands of Croatian Ustasha soldiers during WWII. It is estimated that ca. 10,000 people attended the rally.

The Croatian parliament began sponsoring the event but it is organized by the Croatian Catholic Church – Should we be surprised by this? 

https://www.politico.eu/article/croatia-contested-commemoration-world-war-ii-nationalists-catholic-church/

Croatian Catholic Church leader Zelimir Puljić led a funerary procession from the graveyard to Loibach field, walking solemnly behind a flag resembling the one used by the Ustasha before stopping to greet members of parliament. Puljić has advocated loosening laws on the controversial Ustasha-era slogan and called for a referendum on making it the official greeting of the Croatian armed forces.

The Ustasha was a fascist movement that ruled the Nazi puppet state of Croatia during World War II. With the defeat of Nazi Germany imminent thousands of Ustashi soldiers attempted to escape to Austria in 1945 – which was occupied by British forces at that time. Tito’s Yugoslavian partisans, who supported allied forces during the war, were given custody of the Ustashi who were thereafter executed by Tito’s partisans

Croatian Fascist Slogan Deemed Unconstitutional but Allowable

Let us not forget that the The Reichskonkordat signed in 1933 by Germany and the Vatican is still in force to this day. Though some German bishops were unenthusiastic, and the Allies at the end of World War II felt it inappropriate, Pope Pius XII successfully argued to keep the Koncordat in force.

The Power of Water

“In the beginning was the WORD…” John 1:1

After reading the book “The True Power of Water”, written by Masuru Emoto, founder of IHM Corporation in Tokyo, I considered the possible consequences of his work to date.

Mr Emoto has carried out considerable research into the nature and power of water. Only a part of his research is briefly described in the following posting.

The Water Crystal

During his research concerning the nature of water, Mr Emoto began to question why each individual snowflake or water crystal was unique in form. Although they are all basically hexagonal in form each flake has its own wondrous beauty. As a consequence he developed a technique that enabled him to photograph water crystals while in the process of crystallisation.

Sound

It was discovered that the process of crystallisation of water droplets was influenced by projecting words, thoughts and impressions on the droplets.

Words and thoughts of what may be called fine or positive qualities created beautiful symmetrical crystals. However, when words and thoughts of what may be called a coarse or a negative nature were projected they resulted in warped and twisted crystals.

Not only sounds but written words taped to a water container could affect the quality of the water within the container.

The same results were obtained when various types of music were played in the vicinity of the test samples.

Words, thoughts and music all produce wave forms on many and various frequencies. It would appear that, according to Masuru Emoto’s research, these wave forms affect the atomic structure of water molecules?

Perhaps Mathew 15:11, “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man”. – Is revealing much more about the power of sound and thought forms than is at first apparent?

 Life on earth is dependant upon water

 The planet earth itself requires water to enable a sustainable environment to be maintained for all the many and varied life-forms that inhabit it – including ourselves of course!

The circulation of blood through the veins and arteries of the human body could be likened to the circulation of water through the myriad of streams and rivers on planet earth. Water providing life-giving sustenance to the planet and blood giving life-giving sustenance to the human body.

Life in the blood – Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

We should, however, be aware that the human body is composed of approx. two-thirds water.

The amount of water in the human body ranges from 50-75%. The average adult human body is 50-65% water, averaging around 57-60%. The percentage of water in infants is much higher, typically around 75-78% water, dropping to 65% by one year of age.

There can be considerable variation in body water percentage based on a number of factors such as age, health, weight, and sex.

Much of the water is in blood plasma – ca. 20% of the body’s total.

Could the water content in the blood, being affected through outside stimuli – sounds and thought forms on varying frequencies flowing throughout the brain – be affecting our individual thought patterns, our bodily physical and mental health? – An off the wall supposition perhaps?

Childhood memory

When I was a child (a while ago now but memory still intact) we learnt a simple rhyme at school. Perhaps it was an early attempt at preventing bullying?

The one-line rhyme is as follows: “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me”.

Most people today would perhaps disagree with the message the rhyme is attempting to convey? The damage caused to the recipient by what comes out of the mouth in this instance (name-calling) may not be visible physically, but may be the cause of invisible mental anguish. If name-calling is prolonged, over time, the invisible damage caused may well reveal itself in actual physical visible illness? Perhaps Masuru Emoto’s research findings have far reaching consequences for all living beings? Perhaps the experiences we encounter during our life-span can also influence our development and our mental and bodily health through the same mechanisms? – Remember Mathew 15:11.

 Planetary Laws

 The material world we live in appears to be based on duality – a Law of 2. Water, however, appears to have an extra dimension. It can appear as 1. Solid (ice). 2. Liquid. 3. Vapour (invisible). The three states of being are dependant on temperature change. An increase of temperature increases the rate of vibration of the atomic structure and vice-versa. The sound waves of words or music, fine or coarse, would appear to have a similar affect on the human mind and body, if Mr Emoto’s findings are correct.

Although water vapour dispersed in air may be invisible to the normal eye it does not of course mean that it no longer exists. It will stay in vapour form until such times as the air becomes saturated and is no longer able to retain any more vapour in suspension, or, until it meets a cold front. In either case the invisible becomes the visible.

Baptism

Water used in baptisms is blessed – the words spoken in the blessing – by one who is authorized to speak them – being important and carefully chosen. Could the sound frequencies of the words used affect the baptismal water and/or the individual being baptised?

As far as I can ascertain baptism by total immersion in water is the correct biblical method of baptism. Sprinkling a few drops of water, which has been blessed through the spoken word of one who believes he has the authority, on a baby’s forehead does not appear to be the correct baptismal method.

Why baptize a baby? What is the purpose of baptism? – Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Is a new-born baby loaded with so much sin that it needs to repent? Improbable that the baby even understands what sin is? Therefore, it would appear that baptizing a baby and expecting it to understand that it has repented for the remission of sins that it has not knowingly committed would appear to be a man-made observance – Not a God-plane one?

 Living waters

John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water  that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

 The Bible draws an analogy between running water and the Holy Spirit.

 Material to Spirit in the twinkling of an eye

1 Corinthian 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

 Just how will those who have qualified be changed?

Perhaps we all should be particularly careful as to what we watch, speak, hear and read?

 

 

Empire Building-Part 2

UN Resolution

The UN passed resolution 743 in February 1992 creating the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR). NATO was asked by the United Nations to intervene in the Bosnian War after allegations of war crimes against civilians were made. Operation Deliberate Force, the bombing campaign carried out by NATO and UNPROFOR to weaken the Bosnian Serb Army, began on 30 August 1995 and was completed on 20 September 1995. The operation was led by Admiral Leighton W. Smith, US Navy. The US and the UK were now leading the way, along with other allied forces in NATO, toward defeating the Serbian forces.

German Forces March

Germany was back on the road to redrawing the map of Europe and would shortly embark on the use of military force outside its borders for the first time since the Third Reich. Berlin later deployed 4,000 troops to Bosnia in 1995, its largest mission abroad since World War II, but its return to direct military aggression after an almost 55-year hold on military activity outside its own borders would occur with NATOs war against Yugoslavia in 1999 – Kosovo.

History is quickly forgotten

On June 22nd 1941, General Tito, via a secretly printed newspaper, called on the people of Yugoslavia to rise up to help the Russians. On June 27th, the Partisan Army was officially created under the leadership of Tito. The official call to the people of Yugoslavia came on July 4th. This call led to an intensive campaign against the Germans. Tito himself took charge of Serbia. The response to Titos call to arms was huge. Tito could rally his troops via a radio station called Free Yugoslavia set up in the Soviet Union. By September 1941, it is estimated that there were about 70,000 resistance fighters in Yugoslavia. Serbia suffered great loss of life during WW II, and a united Yugoslavia managed to fight against the dictates of German dominion during the war, and later Russian influence after the war under Titos leadership.

After Titos death in May 1980, and the loss of his strong leadership, old troubles began to surface once again.

Kosovo

In 1997, the Serbs saw Germany supporting a guerrilla army of Albanians. The guerrillas called themselves the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). A large majority of Kosovos population was Albanian. These Kosovo Albanians, along with Albania and Germany, supported the guerrilla army against the Serbs. There are ca. 600,000 Albanians in Germany. Many of the KLA guerrillas left their families behind in Germany to fight against the Serbs in a civil war that the German-supported Albanians started.

By 1998, the KLA escalated its guerrilla warfare from sporadic attacks on Serbian police units into a substantial armed rebellion. The Yugoslav army and Serbian forces launched a major offensive against the KLA in February 1999 to reassert Yugoslav government control over the region. After negotiations broke down, NATO began to launch air strikes against Serbian military targets in March – Operation Allied Force.

The standard quoted Western motive for that mission is that it was an intervention to prevent alleged genocide in the Serbian province of Kosovo. Its actual aim was to separate Kosovo from Serbia and was the final act of a decade long mission to reduce the once federal republic of Yugoslavia to a number of independent states all controlled by Europe.

It was in Kosovo that Germany crossed the post-World War II red line when the Luftwaffe engaged in combat operations for the first time since 1945. A thousand German troops entered Kosovo along with their NATO allies in June of 1999. A German general assumed command of the 50,000-troop NATO Kosovo Force (KFOR).

It should be remembered that the Kosovo operation was the first time that NATO had used military force without the approval of the UN Security Council and against a sovereign nation that had not posed any threat to any member of the alliance.

Had there been evidence of genocide in Kosovo? — Read the following – just one of many reports that paint another picture than that of the officially accepted one: http://www.counterpunch.org/1999/10/22/genocide-in-kosovo/

The war ended with the Kumanovo Treaty, concluded on 9 June 1999, with Yugoslav forces agreeing to withdraw from Kosovo to make way for an international presence.

The NATO bombing [In the course of the campaign, NATO launched 2,300 missiles at 990 targets and dropped 14,000 bombs, including depleted uranium bombs and cluster munitions. Over 2,000 civilians were killed, including 88 children, and thousands more were injured] and surrounding events have remained controversial, as it never gained the approval of the UN Security Council. Some legal academics have argued that the Kumanovo Agreement is dubious under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT) and, as a consequence, so too are parts of Resolution 1244 referring, implicitly or explicitly, to paragraph 10 of Annex 2 of the same resolution. One particular argument is that it is doubtful whether the Kumanovo Agreement can be considered valid according to Article 52 of the VCLT, which states that: a treaty is void if its conclusion has been procured by the threat or use of force in violation of the principles of international law embodied in the Charter of the United Nations. The legal arguments continue that in fact to remedy the legal issues arising what is needed is for Status of Forces Agreement to be entered into with Belgrade.

State by state, the former Yugoslavian Federation has been conquered.

Diplomacy or Intrigue?

Could the United States and its allies have undertaken anything other than military intervention to resolve the Kosovo crisis? In fact, they appear to have done so. After the bombing campaign, which strengthened support for Milosevic and weakened his opponents, it appears that the U.S. poured cash into rebuilding the Serbian opposition. The funding was dependant on the diverse opposition groups agreeing to work together and attending regular coordination meetings held in Budapest, and organized by people understood to represent the State Department. The plan for the anti-Milosevic revolution was worked out in these meetings down to the smallest detail, including where the leaders of each of the 18 participating political organizations would be if mass protests broke out in Belgrade – They did, in October 2000.

Bulldozer Revolution

Slobodan Milosević’s overthrow was reported as a spontaneous revolution. However, there had been a year-long battle involving thousands of Serbs in a strategy to strip the leader of his legitimacy, turn his security forces against him, and force him to call for elections. The protest initially started with strikers at the Kolubara mines, which produce most of Serbia’s electricity needs. The protest reached its height on 5 October 2000. Several hundred thousand protesters from all over Serbia arrived in Belgrade to protest. Unlike previous protests, there was no large scale police crackdown. The parliament was partially burned during the protests.

Were the protests spontaneous or were they planned?

Slobodan Milosević

Slobodan Milosević was charged with crimes against humanity and genocide when his trial opened at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. However, the prosecution case was more than a little tainted. A number of prosecution witnesses gave evidence that was found to be less than truthful. The prosecution struggled to obtain proof that Milosević was complicit in, and had prior knowledge of, the worst massacre with which he was accused – between 2000 and 4000 murdered in Srebrenica in 1995. A five-year inquiry commissioned by the Dutch government resulted in “no proof that orders for the slaughter came from Serb political leaders in Belgrade – The results of the inquiry have been contentious, as they undermined the prosecution’s case. Some commentators have expressed the view that the inquiry was flawed due to the alleged foreknowledge of the Dutch UN peacekeeping force stationed at the UN enclave to the forthcoming massacre.

Not a single witness testified that Milosevic was complicit in ordering military actions that could be construed as being descriptive of war crimes. Many of the indictments made against him regarding Kosovo remain unproven to this day.

The chief prosecutor, Carla del Ponte, admitted that she did not have enough evidence to convict Milosevic on the most serious charges.

The International Criminal Tribunal on Yugoslavia has long been reportedly characterized as an unhealthy community of interests between the judges and the prosecutors;

To this day there is no absolute proof that ethnic cleansing and genocide really were the motives for the Balkans conflicts. However, there is proof that the Serbs were subjected to a form of ethnic cleansing! Admiral Gregory Johnson, U.S. commander of NATO forces for southern Europe, has been quoted as saying that “this kind of activity almost amounts to ethnic cleansing”. He was referring to 1,000 Serbs who were forced to leave their homes after Albanian Muslims attacked Serb Christians in their churches and villages in 2004. They were the latest of about 200,000 Serbs driven from Kosovo since NATO bombed Serbia into submission in 1999.

Conclusions:

Are the generally accepted motives for NATOs intervention in the Balkans grounded in truth? It would appear that Germany, Austria and the Vatican were initially alone in supporting a break-up of the former Yugoslavia. The real motive for recognizing the break-away states was to destabilize the Yugoslavian Federation and remove Serbian control of the Balkans.

Slobodan Milosevićs real sin (in the eyes of some European leaders at least) was that he had a sense of history – as opposed to many others who appear to have mislaid theirs — he realized what the real motives behind Slovenia and Croatia’s claims to independence were. Simply stated he was an enemy of Germany and the Vatican and a stumbling block to further European expansionism towards the East. He had to be removed!!

In the Milosevic trial, the judges allowed evidence to be given by a number of so-called expert witnesses who were not, in fact, witnesses to anything. Hearsay evidence admitted in court?

The Hague tribunal, which is a blatantly political body set up and funded by the very NATO powers that waged war against Milosevic’s Yugoslavia – and that has refused to consider the prima facie evidence that western leaders were guilty of war crimes in that conflict — is clearly not an independent body capable of dispensing justice impartially.

This perhaps gives us a good insight into the justice system that may well be prevalent within the future European Union (empire)? – Roman justice – Guilty until proven Innocent!

Conveniently, Slobodan Milosevic died in custody on 11 March 2006, some months before the verdict was due on his 4 year trial. In February 2007, the International Court of Justice cleared Serbia under Milosević’s rule of direct responsibility for occurrences of genocide committed during the Bosnian War. However, the president of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) did state that it was “conclusively proved” that the Serbian leadership, and Milosević in particular, “were fully aware … that massacres were likely to occur” – Surprise surprise. Note that the president of the court stated massacres were LIKELY to occur — and NOT were PLANNED and expected to occur.

I am not saying that atrocities did not occur – on all sides – but Serbia was singled out and Milosevic made the scapegoat to satisfy European aims.

With President Bill Clinton, and UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair, leading the way, NATO bombed Serbia into submission – and then relinquished control of the Balkans to a German led Europe.

President Putin also realizes which future path both Germany and the Vatican wish to tread – taking other Eastern European states along with them.

Henry Kissinger warned that the war against Serbia represented an extraordinary and unprecedented redefinition of the “national interest”–which now, it would appear, includes the domestic policies of other countries.

The implication would appear to be that the United States may bomb and even invade countries whose domestic policies are not to its liking. This doctrine implies that any country in the world is a potential target for US bombing. It would not be difficult – based on the present state of world affairs – to draw up a list of countries that could be considered likely candidates for military attack by the United States (Unfortunately, the US has lost the willpower and the economic means to do so). Were a deterioration of world economic conditions to lead to increased trade tensions and civil unrest; the length of that list could, potentially, be extended.

The relatively recent annexation of the Crimea by Russia is only one step in Russias expansionist and empire building plans. President Putin does not accept the loss of Russian sovereignty over former East-bloc and Baltic states. President Putin’s determination to secure Russian influence over eastern Ukraine is also related to the region’s importance to the Russian armaments industry.

The US is certainly not interested in investing in a new cold war (they can not really afford to economically. The current national debt is ca. 21 trillion dollars and rising – http://www.usdebtclock.org/). After Iraq and Afghanistan, the American people are war-weary and expect Europe to carry more of the burden of NATO defence. One day, America may regret giving Europe that power.

Germany is, and will remain, the power-house of Europe. The U.S. is giving Germany control of the very nations that Hitler fought a bloody war attempting to conquer, with the loss of many American and allied lives – only 70 years ago.

Russia, China and perhaps now the USA – under the new administration – appear to have their strong leaders.  Europe is still waiting expectantly for a new Charlemagne. If you believe that a united, federal Europe is axiomatic with Peace in our Time think again!

German reorganization of Europe

http://www.german-foreign-policy.com/en/hist-archiv/dne/index.php#1989

Quotes:

The “reorganisation” of Europe is a recurring justification, as well as an expressed goal of German expansionist policy. At the time of the foundation of the German Empire (1870/1871) this “reorganisation” was already being carried out by means of war, at that time war against France. During the following period, the German Empire continued to arm. This economical and political expansion made use of various theoretical structures to disguise the will to conquer?

Soon after the period of colonial acquisition, on the eve of the First World War, a “reorganisation of Europe” no longer sufficed the imperial program of expansion. It now strove for world dominance. Large sectors of the German population allowed themselves to be implemented in this aim. Increasing nationalist sentiment neutralised social demands, so that any flare-up of the internal contradictions present within society could largely be avoided. In order to integrate opposing and sceptical Germans into this policy of expansion, the “reorganisation of Europe” was presented as a peculiarly German obligation. Its professed goal was the liberation of oppressed European peoples as well as the spreading of economic and political progress. The “reorganisation of Europe” was ostensibly sought only for the preservation of peace.

1989-2002The end of the division of Germany led to national self-reflection on its history; this was termed “normalisation”. A reunited Germany must now take up its European “responsibility for peace”, it was said. Wherever the “autonomy of a people” or “ethnicities” were in danger, Berlin must become active. In the last instance Germany must carry out “peacekeeping through intervention from outside”, that is, must wage war. As in the earlier periods of imperialist major-power politics, the “reorganisation of Europe” remains both a justification for and a goal of German striving for dominance. Operational activities are pursued primarily in the east and the south-east of the continent. The Central Europe programme pursued in times of the Kaiser and of the National Socialists was brought up to date. German foreign policy now reaches out to Asia and Africa. By the middle of the nineties at the latest, German claims are measured against the United States, whose leadership role is called into question and disputed with growing frequency. It is maintained that “Europe” can only develop in opposition to America; that Germany must emerge from its subservient role. This concept begins to bridge domestic political differences, leading Social Democrats, Socialists and former opponents of the system to voice demands for an “international German presence”.

Global power bases are changing rapidly. The coming future is going to affect each and every one of us; regardless of where we live. Big Brother appears to becoming ever more watchful, vigilant and suspicious of us all.

Quote from

The European War Union — 2016/06/28 — http://www.german-foreign-policy.com/en/fulltext/58954

..Just a few days ago, Foreign Minister Steinmeier declared in the US journal “Foreign Affairs” that Germany has become “a major power” and will “try its best” on the world stage “to hold as much ground as possible”. 

With Britain, which had always adamantly opposed an integrated EU military policy, leaving the EU, Berlin sees an opportunity for reviving its efforts at restructuring the EU’s military and mobilizing as many member countries as possible for the EU’s future wars.

Interesting article: http://www.german-foreign-policy.com/en/fulltext/59004

Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President-elect of the Federal Republic of Germany is the epitome of the past two decades of Berlin’s expansionist policy – from the war over Kosovo to intervention in the Syrian war. As State Secretary in the Federal Chancellery, Steinmeier was implicated in the aggression against Yugoslavia in the spring of 1999, with which Germany, in violation of international law, entered its first war of aggression since 1945.

Empire Building-Part 1

Aachen King

Almost anything can be forgiven — except the truth!

 Russia and the European Union (EU)

Russia and the European Union have one major political goal in common – To expand and re-build their respective empires.

In the late 1980s, with glasnost opening the way for former Russian dominated countries to leave the steel fold of the USSR, the former Russian empire became a diminishing threat to the western world. Many believed the cold war was over and Russia was entering a new phase of openness with its neighbours.

Western militaries reduced their focus on military deterrence in Europe. As a consequence, the Ukraine crisis caught NATO sleeping as it attempted to find an adequate response to Russia. The West had been lulled into a false sense of security due to the apparent aging state of Russia’s military. It has since been dramatically modernized and analysts in Western armies and intelligence services are concerned about the capabilities Russia has put on display in recent manoeuvres

The historical plan (ostensibly) for the European Union was, by democratic means, to unite Europe and to prevent yet another charismatic figure appearing on the political scene who would lead Europe into yet another conflagration. That charismatic figure has not, as yet, appeared in Europe, but the nation that was responsible for instigating two world wars in the previous century is the major controlling power within that Union. The European Union would appear to be only a cloak for Germanys ambitions for a future Empire? Certainly on the economic front.

The strong man of Russia has appeared on the scene – President Vladimir Putin has made it abundantly clear that he does not accept the notion of openness with his neighbours in Europe (despite the rhetoric) and is apparently determined to reassert Russian dominance. This was perhaps first made clear during the Russian invasion of Georgia in August 2008.

Russia pulled most of its troops out of Georgia. However, Western officials insist the troops did not return to the line where they were stationed prior to the beginning of hostilities as described in the peace plan. Russian forces remained stationed in Abkhazia and South Ossetia under bilateral agreements with the corresponding governments. Georgia and its Western allies consider Abkhazia and South Ossetia to be occupied by Russia.

Ukraine

Russia has now made it clear that it will not accept closer links between Ukraine and the EU. In addition to the Ukraine problem there is a growing concern within Europe that Bulgaria’s close energy ties to Russia will allow Moscow to use Sofia as a beachhead for its interests and drive a wedge between EU member states. It has been reported that Moscow may seek to expand its relations with the country in order to use Bulgaria as a political beachhead into the EU, and then use that power to divide the block.
Former Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev warned of dangerous developments across the entire region. He fears President Putin could destabilize Bulgaria and the Balkans and attempt to bring it under its sphere of influence. The countrys economy is heavily dependant on Russia and Plevneliev would have liked to reduce Russian influence on the economy so that a similar situation to that currently being played out in Ukraine will not repeat itself in Bulgaria.

EU and US Sanctions!

The response from the EU and US regarding sanctions on Moscow can, at best, be called luke-warm. While the rhetoric flows from western nations, without any meaningful result so far; the reason behind the luke-warm sanctions is to be found in the Balkans.

It was the EU (European Economic Community (EEC) as it was called in the past) and thereafter the US and other EEC member states that set a precedent for President Putins decision to, in effect, annex the Crimea and make possible its probable future reunification with the Russian Federation. President Putin has made it clear that he sees the unilateral separation of Kosovo from Serbia in 1998/99 in exactly the same light as that which has occurred in the Crimea. The separation of Kosovo was deemed legitimate by western nations and did not require acceptance from the countrys ruling government – ergo, the same applies to the Crimea!

The Balkans

Much has been written about the break-up of the former Yugoslavia. Serbia has historically been labelled as the bad-guy throughout the long and bloody years of conflict. Propaganda and misinformation was widely used during and after the many conflicts to justify (from a western standpoint) NATO bombing of a sovereign country. The UN Security Council vetoed any military action. NATO, with the US as the spearhead, disregarded the veto claiming that Kosovo was a special case due to the number of human causalities inflicted.

What the world was, and is, actually witnessing is two historical empires attempting to expand and in the process tramping upon each others toes.

Let us take a reasonably brief look at what actually occurred in the Balkans between 1990 and towards the turn of the century. It is by no means a comprehensive study, but an attempt to look at the real motive behind the Balkans conflict

Slovenia and Croatia

On the death of Tito, the Communist backed regime of Serbian, Slobodan Milosevic, took over power in the former Yugoslavia and initially, a relatively stable period in the federations history continued.

In the late 1980s, with glasnost ushering in what appeared to be a new era of Soviet openness, Slobodan Milosevics support from the Soviet Union was severely diminished.

The EEC and especially Germany, was aware, that in order to control an extended Europe (for that is the European plan – to expand) the Balkans had to be brought under the controlling influence of Europe. There was, however, one major obstacle to the plan – Serbia.

It would appear that a German/Austrian/Vatican alliance persuaded the UN, EEC, USA and NATO into supporting the Balkan conflict with the prime intention of removing the Serbian domination of the federal Yugoslavia – thus bringing the federal states under European domination and removing the Soviet influence. This has been achieved.

Slovenia was the first State in the Yugoslavian Federation to break-away and claim independence and was recognized as such by Croatia in June of 1991. Yugoslavian federal border crossings between Italy and Austria were taken by force by Slovenia. Federal troops were sent into Slovenia to restore order but were repulsed by Slovenian armed forces. The federal troops withdrew into Croatia, where they were attacked by Croatian armed forces. Both Slovenia and Croatian forces were armed with German weapons!!

Germany passed a resolution on the recognition of Slovenia, and eventually so did the EEC in January 1992. The Vatican also recognized the independent Slovenia in the same month. As citizens of both Slovenia and Croatia were predominantly Catholic – 70% and 86% respectively in 1991- then the Pope’s recognition was hardly surprising. Germany’s recognition of both break-away states can also be understood by looking at relatively recent historical connections.

Christian Orthodoxy versus Western Catholicism – East versus West

Serbia has traditionally been a Christian country since the Christianization of Serbs by Byzantine Christian missionaries Cyril and Methodius in the 9th century. Therefore, the dominant religion is Eastern Orthodoxy of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

In the former Yugoslavia we clearly saw the difference between the historical western and eastern religious legs of the old Holy Roman Empire.

Germany, by recognizing the independence of Slovenia and Croatia was reviving an historical connection between the countries. Both Slovenia and Croatia were aligned with Berlin during WW II. Slovenia was annexed and became a part of the Third Reich and a puppet regime created in Croatia.

World War II came to Yugoslavia as a direct result of the pro-Axis sentiments of the Serbian controlled Yugoslav government. Under Prince Paul, Yugoslavia moved steadily away from France and toward Germany after the death of King Alexander. As early as February of 1936 Hitler promised to support the government of Premier Milan Stojadinovic. Prince Paul, saw the Third Reich as the only power able to maintain the artificial state of Yugoslavia and he began secret negotiations with top Nazi officials in December 1939. Yugoslavia joined the Axis on March 24, 1941 – that is a story in itself but will not be related here.

The World War II persecution of Serbs, also known as Serbian Genocide, refers to the widespread persecution of Serbs that included extermination, expulsions and forced religious conversions of large numbers of ethnic Serbs by the Ustase regime in the Independent State of Croatia, and killings of Serbs by Albanian collaborators and Axis occupying forces during World War II

The numbers of Serbs persecuted by the Ustase were very large, but the exact extent is the subject of much debate and estimates vary widely. Yad Vashem estimates over 500,000 murdered, 250,000 expelled and 200,000 forcibly converted to Catholicism. The estimate of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is that the Ustasa authorities murdered between 320,000 and 340,000 ethnic Serb residents of Croatia and Bosnia during the period of Ustase rule, out of which between 45,000 and 52,000 were murdered in the Jasenovac concentration camp.

For historical reasons alone the Serbs had good reason to fear a German supported independent Croatia. The government of Croatian President, Franjo Tudjman, had refused to disassociate itself from the Croatian fascists who ruled the republic in the 1940s, which in turn initially made other European leaders (other than Germany and Austria) unwilling to move quickly toward recognition. Strong German support for Croatian independence from Yugoslavia, and Croatias adoption of the hymn Danke Deutschland when their independence came in 1991, only reinforced Serbian misgivings. Croatia clearly knew its revolt succeeded thanks to German intervention

Bosnia

After Croatia and Slovenia, the civil war spread into Bosnia-Herzegovina. The Serbs lost control of a large portion of this republic also. The Bosnian War was an international armed conflict that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 6 April 1992 and 14 December 1995. The war involved several factions. The main belligerents were the forces of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and those of the self-proclaimed Bosnian Serb and Bosnian Croat entities within Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and Herzeg-Bosnia, who were led and supplied by Serbia and Croatia respectively. The multi-ethnic Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was inhabited by Muslim Bosniaks (44 percent), Orthodox Serbs (31 percent) and Catholic Croats (17 percent), passed a referendum for independence on 29 February 1992. This was rejected by the political representatives of the Bosnian Serbs, who had boycotted the referendum and established their own republic. Following Bosnia and Herzegovina’s declaration of independence (which had gained international recognition), the Bosnian Serbs, supported by the Serbian government of Slobodan Milosević and the Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA), mobilized their forces inside the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina in order to secure Serbian territory. War soon broke out across the country, accompanied by the claim of ethnic cleansing of the Muslim Bosniak and Croat population, especially in eastern Bosnia and throughout the Republika Srpska.

The war was brought to an end after the signing of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina in Paris on 14 December 1995. Peace negotiations were held in Dayton, Ohio, and were finalized on 21 December 1995.

Europe leads the USA and NATO To War (From behind)

Initially, the US would not accept a break-up of the former Yugoslavian Federation, but in April 1992, President Bush (Senior) said in a statement that he would move immediately to establish diplomatic relations with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia, the three republics that had been recognized by the European Community. The American declaration came nine months after civil war broke out in Yugoslavia, following the independence moves of Slovenia and Croatia.

Europe was now leading international diplomacy to further its own expansionist policy in the Balkans. Future events would lead the US, along with NATO, into military action that once and for all would destroy Serbian resistance to European control of the Balkans. Serbia, with Slobodan Milosević at the helm of government knew, from a historical perspective, the real motive for European (read German/Austrian and Vatican) endeavours to break-up the former Yugoslavia — The Balkans was to become a strategic part of the new and ever-expanding European Empire.

End Quotes

USA enters the conflict

The Bush (Senior) Administration was of the opinion that conflicts in the Balkans should be settled by the powers in Europe, and was encouraged in this opinion by European powers agreeing that it should be they who intervened in the Balkans rather than the United States.

President Bill Clinton followed Bush (Senior) into office. He had previously criticized Bush’s policy toward Bosnia, and after taking office he looked toward taking a tougher stand against the Serbs. His Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, went to Europe to argue for lifting the arms embargo against the Bosnians so they could better defend themselves and to argue for the use of airpower against the Serbs.

Note:
Bill Clinton received the Charlemagne Prize in the year 2000, the year after his opposite number, Tony Blair (then Prime Minister of the UK), received the same prize. It has been awarded once a year since 1950 by the German city of Aachen to people who contributed to the ideals upon which it has been founded. It commemorates Charlemagne, ruler of the Frankish Empire and founder of what became the Holy Roman Empire, who resided and is buried at Aachen. Traditionally the award is given to the recipient on Ascension Day in a ceremony in the town hall of Aachen. In 800 AD, on Christmas Day, King Charles of France knelt in prayer before the altar of the church of St. Peter’s in Rome; Pope Leo III suddenly placed a golden crown on his head. The Roman people shouted three times, “To Charles Augustus, crowned by God, the great and pacific emperor of the Romans, life and victory!” Charles was reverenced by the pope and called Emperor and Augustus, after the manner of the leaders of ancient Rome. Charlemagne, also known as Charles the Great, was ruler of the Franks for 47 years: 768-814 A.D. He served the last 14 years of his life as Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.

One begins to more than just wonder to what agenda these two former leaders were working to? – Especially in the light of Charlemagnes past bloody history of uniting Europe. Tony Blair left the Anglican Church to convert to Catholicism on leaving office as Prime Minister. President Clinton received Holy Communion from a South African Roman Catholic Church on March 29 1998, although not a member of the Church. It was the Clinton staff that approached the South African priest, requesting that the president be allowed to receive Communion; the South African bishops gave no such authorization. Bill Clinton is a product of the Catholic parochial school system and Georgetown University in Wash. D.C. – a Jesuit Institution.

To Be Continued

A Week of Time

A Week of Time

Isaiah 42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

 After reading an article that was discussing time, I began to think about our seven-day week and why a week should consist of seven days.

Measuring Time

Our other measurements of time passing (as perceived by us) are based on astronomical data. The day (rotation of earth), month (moon) and year (complete revolution of earth around sun). The seven-day week does not fit into any neat astronomical cycle.

The week could have been divided into 5 or 10 days, for example. to fit in with the moon cycle but it was not, and is not – Why?

Some theories cite the number of days in a week as being the number of visible planetary bodies that were visible to the naked eye by ancient civilizations. The Babylonians are often given credit for developing this number – without any great historical evidence to support it as far as I can ascertain?

Planetary bodies and the days of the week have long been associated with various ‘gods’ and their attributes, but it would appear that the seven-day week was in existence long before this practice originated.

Although the number seven does not appear to have any natural (apparent) planetary (earth) or astronomical cyclical foundation, it must have originated somewhere?

Biblical Time

Religion of course has been cited as the origin — Biblical 7-day week for example.

However, it would appear that many other ancient civilizations and religions used the seven-day week long before the Hebrew texts became known or their contents practiced.

For example: Chinese, Hindu, Celts and many non-Jewish religions, far more ancient than the Biblical nations of Israel, subscribed to the seven-day week.

Various societies have, throughout history, experimented with a varying number of days in a week, but almost without exception they have all reverted back to the week of seven days.

Although the written texts of the Bible are relatively young in comparison to the age of this planet and to the many different people and societies that have inhabited it (known and unknown), the people who currently, and in the past, observe its Words claim it to be the inspired Word of God – Creator of the heavens and the earth.

This Creator God created (or rather re-created the surface of the earth) in 6 Biblical days and rested on the 7thday. However, He did not REST because He was tired (Isaiah 40:28)

These numbers alone would appear to have great symbolic significance when related to the framework of God’s Plan, but will not be addressed in detail here.

Although God completed His labours in 6 biblical days, the work of renewing the surface of the earth was incomplete, although all that was done was good — much the same as the number 6 is often cited as being the number of man who, as yet, would also appear to be incomplete.

 Lev.23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

 All seven days of the week were made for man—all of mankind.

Rhythm of the human body

The human body appears to work on varying rhythmic cycles:

  1. Circadian Rhythm — 24 hr. body clock
  1. Circannual rhythm – is the annual or yearly cycle used by all living things.
  1. Circaseptan rhythm is a seven-day cycle in which the biological processes of life, including disease symptoms and development, resolve. Many physicians believe that transplant patients tend to have more rejection episodes seven, fourteen, twenty-one, and twenty-eight days after surgery. They further believe that medications administered to the patients at particular times may be more effective than at other times. These are all related to the circaseptan rhythm.

It has also been shown that blood pressure cycles, production of blood and urine chemicals and even the heartbeat are subject to seven-day cycles.

Not all of God’s works are visible to the naked eye — many of them are mysteries that appear to be revealed only when He decides the time is right to reveal them.

Dan. 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, [even] to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Knowledge – Strong’s H1847 da`ath — a) knowledge, perception, skill, b) discernment, understanding, wisdom.

There can be little doubt that knowledge gained by we humans has greatly increased during the past century or so when compared to previous eras.

Although knowledge is increasing we are still number 6 on the scale of creation. Number 7 is often cited as the number of spiritual perfection or completion – we most definitely have not reached those dizzy heights as yet! It could be proposed that the human race is actually regressing? – From gold to iron and clay perhaps? Just look at the world picture at present!

However, we (all?) appear to have the potential to strive towards perfection – with a little help.

The 7th day of Biblical creation was also designated a day of REST. The weekly Sabbath is also closely related to the annual Sabbath days

REST – Strong’s H7677 shabbathown 1) Sabbath observance, sabbatism, a) of weekly Sabbath, b) day of atonement, c) sabbatical year, d) of Feast of Trumpets, e) of the 1st and last days of the Feast of Tabernacles.

More on this in later postings perhaps?

The Template

The number 7, being a number often cited to symbolize spiritual perfection, or completion, then it would appear, according to the symbolism incorporated in God’s annual Holy Days, that we have not yet reached this period of rest (Millennium).

It would appear that it was God who created the 7-day week, not man, for reasons that may be partly revealed through knowledge of His Sabbath Days – which were made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.

We could speculate that the chosen people (Tribes of Israel — not only Judah) were envisioned to be templates for other so-called gentile nations. Unfortunately, as in the workplace, if the template is not kept in pristine condition (laws of good work practice) the products produced from it develop faults which, over time, only increase in severity — present and coming future!

Isaiah 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

Has Anyone Gone to Heaven?

“Fools see men’s clothes; wise men see men’s spirits.”

 Does the Word of God actually tell us that those who qualify, or anyone else for that matter, will be going to heaven when they die?

This is one of many reasons why it is essential to understand the meaning of God’s annual Holy Days – They reveal to us the framework of God’s Plan. Unfortunately, many (majority) churches do not respect these holy days, or teach the meaning of them.

Jesus spoke to the apostles on this subject:

John 13:33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you…36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

The last few words of verse 36, are assumed by many to mean that the apostles, and all those who truly qualify, will follow Him (Jesus) to heaven on death. However, that is not what this verse says – it is actually revealing that they will follow Christ later – when He returns to earth!

The apostles and those who have qualified in this lifetime are to be resurrected as SPIRIT BORN in the first resurrection. Rev. 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Rev. 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

There are those who sincerely believe that those who have qualified in this lifetime and have died before Christ’s return will be in heaven with Him until that day comes.

What more do the Scriptures reveal?

Eccl. 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. 6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any [thing] that is done under the sun.10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

 Psalms 146:4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.

 Psalms 6:5 For in death [there is] no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

 The above verses give a little gloomy picture, but let us remember that TIME as we perceive it in the physical world only began when the Universe came into motion.

God’s (spiritual) measurement of time is somewhat different:

Psalms 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.

 2 Peter 38 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

 The Father’s House

John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

Is not the Fathers House called His temple? – A temple can have many rooms and Christ tells us that He is going to prepare those rooms to be occupied by those who qualify for positions in the temple WHEN HE RETURNS. Jesus on His return will be the head of Gods Temple – the High Priest. Those who have been resurrected in the first resurrection (on Christ’s return) will have various positions of authority with Him in Gods Temple on this earth – NOT IN HEAVEN.

Matt: 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world

Does the Bible reveal the identity of anyone who has ascended to Heaven?

John. 3: And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son of man which is in heaven.

 No person has ever ascended to heaven

The Crucifixion

There are those that refer to Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. as proof that we go to heaven on death

 Did Jesus promise the thief that was crucified next to Him that he would join Him in heaven?

The word used here is Paradise – but is Paradise heaven?

Strongs # G 3857 – Greek – Paradeisos

1) among the Persians a grand enclosure or preserve, hunting ground, park, shady and well watered, in which wild animals, were kept for the hunt; it was enclosed by walls and furnished with towers for the hunters
2) a garden, pleasure ground
2a) grove, park
3) the part of Hades which was thought (they did not know) by the later Jews to be the abode of the souls of pious until the resurrection: but some understand this to be a heavenly paradise
4) the upper regions of the heavens. According to the early church Fathers, the paradise in which our first parents dwelt before the fall still exists, neither on the earth nor in the heavens, but above and beyond the world.

In some elements of first-century Judaism, this word Paradise described the heavenly abode of the soul between death and the resurrection. After Jesus rose from the dead, He stated that he had not yet ascended to the Father (John 20:17); therefore, Paradise cannot be identified as the temporary abode of the blessed – and it cannot be heaven.

However, the soul and the human spirit are two different entities – the former physical and the latter, as its name implies, is spiritual (invisible).

Jesus did not rise to heaven on his physical death – His body lay in a tomb for 3 days and 3 nights – not one and a half days as the Easter celebrations would have us believe.

Jesus did not rise to heaven until He resurrected in spirit form.

If we take a look at Luke 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

Jesus has yet to return to claim His Kingdom – He has already qualified to remove the ‘god of this world’. The Paradise mentioned in Luke would appear to be on this earth? – Not in heaven

There are so many examples one could mention but take a look at what those who ‘wait upon the Lord’ will inherit :

Psalms 37:9 What will ‘those that wait on the Lord’ inherit?

Psalms 37:22. – What will ‘those that are blessed’ inherit?

Psalms 37:29 – They shall inherit the earth

 The Lord’s prayer: ‘ …thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…’

Perhaps a good many people may well be surprised and a little disappointed in the coming future? – Time will tell!

 

 

The Power of Resistance

J0336979

There are many influences competing for our attention – both visible and invisible.

The human form is consciousness that walks this planet over the period of a life span. It is the union of the invisible consciousness with the visible form.

We are coming toward the end of  the Age of Pisces, the fish (two)-duality; an age which Jesus Christ inaugurated by “fishing for the elect.” (Math.4:19).

All of us are affected by outside influences, be they on the physical or invisible plane. However, it is the influences from outside ourselves that appear to enable an understanding of things both physical and spiritual.

 It may be of interest to briefly discuss one unseen product of technological development that has benefited many (but not all) peoples on this planet – EL-ECTRICITY – a coincidence that it was given this name? Not if we can use it as an analogy – a comparison between its properties and the unseen influences that can either inspire the mind (for good or the not so good) or depress and dispirit the mind. Mental health problems appear to be rapidly increasing in many so-called advanced societies!

What is El-ectricity?

 No one can give an explanation of what electricity actually is – a definition – the best we can achieve is: ‘a form of energy (power source) resulting from the existence of charged particles (such as electrons or protons), either statically as an accumulation of charge or dynamically as a current.

We can not SEE electricity but we can see, feel and hear the effects of its usage in many different fields of application. This form of energy has always, potentially, been available to mankind, but it is only relatively recently, historically (known history), that the means to do so were developed.

We can explain how it is produced – often called generation – but perhaps the word harnessed would be more appropriate?

We can also explain and see how electricity is stored, distributed and used.

 A form of invisible energy that has the POTENTIAL to work wonders in the visible world. However, this unseen energy requires massive investment in physical (visible) equipment to enable it to be harnessed, distributed and used. Not only must we have equipment but it needs to be correctly dimensioned and produced from certain materials (conductors) that allow the efficient flow of this energy, along with materials that prevent the energy from returning to its source.  Unfortunately, this energy is not easily held captive in the physical world – it is continually seeking the easiest and quickest way back to its source – in this case EARTH.

The whole electrical network from harnessing to the final end use has to be heavily INSULATED. In other words, to enable electricity to do work efficiently the components of the entire system need to be shielded from outside influences (attractions)

 Eph.6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand…16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

 Certain physical materials (conductive) are very receptive to this invisible energy and will accept and transmit its potential over short or long distances. Certain other types of physical materials (insulators) will not accept, but will reject (resist) its acceptance and transmission.

Yet other types of physical materials are somewhere in between – it takes a little longer and requires increased input to achieve flow.

Semi-Conductors

 A pure semi-conductor is a poor electrical conductor. However, they have a number of unique properties, one of which is the ability to change their conductivity by the addition of impurities or by interaction with another phenomenon, such as an electric field or light.

The advent of the semi-conductor really revolutionized the EL-ECTRONICS industry.

Semiconductors made it possible to miniaturize electronic components. Not only does miniaturization mean that the components take up less space, it also means that they operate faster and require less energy. I am writing this posting with the aid of a computer – just one example of their use. The creation of the computer itself may have something to teach us about our own creation – but we will not investigate that here.

Water

Pure water is a non-electrolyte (non-conductor of electricity) due to absence of mobile ions. However, if, for example, salt (added impurity) is mixed with the pure water, it will become an electrolyte and a conductor of electricity due to the presence of mobile ions.

We could perhaps liken a physical material’s acceptance (or not) of electrical energy to the invisible spiritual energy that can also POTENTIALLY create the seeds of understanding and development in mankind – we as individuals also exhibit varying degrees of resistance and many people are excellent insulators.

Luke 4:23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.

 Luke 4:32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.

 Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Impure Heart

Perhaps impurity of the heart (mind) is that which attracts the spirit(s) – the physician is able to cure him/her self? The resistance (influence of worldly attractions) of the individual mind may govern the degree of conductivity? The frequency the mind is operating on at any given moment would also appear to govern the type of spirit that is attracted.

The evangelical preacher (not all of course) appears to be a good example of resistance and frequency combined – we have all seen or heard the spirit induced ranting of the red hot preacher on a red hot frequency – hot under the collar and with an audience in wild ecstasy – ‘hallelujah’, ‘born again’(?), speaking in tongues(?) and saving souls(?)  – All fired up!

Just like the high resistance electrical appliance designed to overheat – radiant heat. It burns if you get too close.

 Sound, Energy and The Word 

 The Word, could be a symbol which represents all the cyclic energies which are expressing God’s spoken thought, design, and order. All life giving energies come from a common source, but they vary in frequency (many) and strength (amplitude); they’re all expressions of God’s energy at different frequencies depending on what He wishes to say. That makes each of us, in effect, a ‘Word’.  Our purpose is perhaps to express (in different forms) what He wishes to say and what He wishes us to do to enhance our spiritual development. If we focus too much of our life on worldly matters (lower frequencies), then we are not a clear channel for 2-way communication. It is therefore apparent that more than a single frequency is required if all forms of expression are to be utilized.

Heb. 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds (ages or aeon) were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear

Framed – Strong’s G2675 – katartizō – to render, i.e. to fit, sound, complete.

Including the creation of the single parts and the harmonious organization of the whole, and the continual providence which maintains the whole throughout all ages.

Word of God – not here, the personal word (Greek, logos, John 1:1) – but the spoken word (Greek, rhema); though by the instrumentality of the personal word.
