Introduction: I have only had a very few dreams in my entire life which I would call significant or even prophetic as well as being a WARNING.

Background Political History: Back in 1989 Communism fell in the Soviet Union and the Wall in East Berlin was finally torn down by the people who had been oppressed for just over 70 years. Countless tens of thousands had died during those years trying to escape from East Germany to Western Germany.

One of the most notable days that I can remember was 19.08.91. 19 Aug, 1991 – [Soviet Union Attempted Coup , 1991 : Leaders of the Army, the KGB and the Police in the Soviet Union are attempting a coup backed by tanks and troops and have the Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev under house arrest. The coup failed largely because of General Yetsin’s stand on a tank stance to defy the ‘coup’ and set an example for the military; and shortly after control is back in the hands of the president and the Coup Leaders are arrested.]

Collapse of the Soviet Union - 1989-1991

The USSR officially ceased to exist on 31 December 1991. The collapse of the Soviet Union in December 1991 changed the world’s geopolitical balance. When the Soviet Union fell, it ended the tenure of a superpower with the resources of more than a dozen countries. The fall left its largest component, Russia, unable to wield anything like the global clout that the Soviet Union had for decades. The concluding drama of the Cold War -- the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and the end of the four-decade-old East-West conflict -- unfolded in three acts between 1989 and 1991.


I was living in London, England at the time. I call it the ‘DAY COMMUNISM FELL IN RUSSIA’! On that particular day, General Yeltsin who later became president of Russia until 31.12.1999, who had been one of the communist leaders, put on a public display for the whole world to see, of him standing on a tank and telling his armies and the entire world that Russia was no longer COMMUNIST! Within weeks or months of Russia announcing this amazing news, all the former Soviet satellite E.E. countries such as Hungry, Poland and Ukraine started to fall from communism like dominoes. They all tried to join Western Europe at the time.

The real question is WHY? Was it real?

Here is a verse I like to use for Russian Communism which is a verse which is normally kept for the coming ANTI-CHRIST:

REV.13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast’.

Today in 2018, we in the West don’t see Putin and Russia as Communists. Putin is seen as a would-be dictator of Russia, which is known to us to be run by Mafia-type Oligarchs, who keep Putin in power because he lets them run their corrupt businesses without interference. Well that is what we are told by the Main Media! What is really the TRUTH about Putin and Russia?

Let’s remember that Putin used to be the head of the very feared KGB. Under the KGB’s reign of terror of 70 odd years, apparently 70 Million Russians or Soviets were executed. After 8 years from the collapse on the Soviet Union in 1991, all of a sudden Putin is the president of Russia and became so on 31st December 1999.

NUMEROLOGY: The Russians really like to choose  ‘exact dates’ to make big news. Dates that are very easy to remember like 19.08.1991 and 31.12.1999.

Both events of 19/08/1991's END OF COMMUNISM and 30/12/1999's announcement of PUTIN as the new president of RUSSIA were clearly 'STAGED' for the whole world to take notice.

This is very interesting, as it is normally a masonic trait. Those in the echelons of power in the West always choose specific dates to build the foundations of important buildings, such as those in Washington D.C. Often it is to do with the phases of the moon. Why? Well that takes more investigation which I won’t go into at this particular time. One thing for sure is that Russia was sending an important message to the world of the ‘initiated ‘on 19.08.1991 and again on 31.12.1999

Notice how PUTIN has been de-facto leader of RUSSIA the whole time from 1999-2018. That's a very long time!

Today in 2018 we hear that Putin is very popular in Russia and has 80% of the popular vote.

Why is Putin so popular? I must admit that Putin certainly seems much wiser that all of the Western leadership put together. He avoids direct confrontations with the West, even when the West tries to goad him into a direct conflict with the USA.

Many people admire Putin and hope that he might have a better solution for the world than the decadent politicians of the West. Putin seems to be leaning on Russia’s Orthodox Christian roots at the present time. He sees the West as having departed from moral Christian values, and thus the West is in danger of disintegrating, because it has no moral foundation anymore. In other words, the West has no sense of right and wrong! I think I would agree with Putin on that one!

Like president Bush said years ago, ‘The truth is whatever I say it is!’ What arrogance these Western leaders have!

The West has no answers anymore. Germany under the supervision of people like the Globalist George Soros, are allowing Western Europe to be overrun by dangerous refugees who both rape Western women, and who refuse to integrate into the West.


I) To cause each country to be weakened and lose their individual Sovereignty, and to make them much easier to pull into the New World Order. It is the old adage of ‘divide and conquer’

II) To use the Muslim fanatics such as ISIS for a season then destroy them. NB. ISIS and such fanatical groups are financed by the USA. Why? Answer: to create FEAR, and thus give more power to politicians to stop the advancement of TERRORISM. N.B Most Muslims are peaceful people, but because of the FANATICS, sadly, public opinion will turn against them in the near future.


Apparently, the real reason why Western Europe initially embraced the REFUGEES, was because the White Western civilization is dying out fast as they don’t have enough children anymore, and in a few more generations there would be no one to keep the countries of Western Europe going.

The West  needed people  to keep running the jobs in Germany and other Western Europe countries including the UK to keep the Elites’ businesses going with cheap labour. Of course, the immigration policy of Angela Merkel has now terribly back-fired and there have been very serious reprisals.

I don’t think that Putin and the Russians are stupid enough to allow marauding refugees to take over Russia. I see a very serious backlash coming very soon against all of the Refugees. A very serious public reaction against them because of their violent crimes and refusal to integrate into Western society, which the authorities of Western Europe are simply turning a blind eye to, at least so far.

Such was the case a week ago, of the Alternative News reporting about Paedophile Asian gangs by Tommy Robinson. Instead of praising Tommy for his accurate reporting, he was thrown in jail for 13 months without a trial for exposing the paedophile gangs who have abused hundreds for children in the UK over the past 30 years. The authorities knew about it and did nothing about it apparently. How is such a ‘state of affairs’ like this even possible?

What is going to happen to countries that have become so corrupt morally and whose governments are a very bad guide to their own peoples?

What has happened in history when a civilization became exceedingly corrupt morally? Was that not when they were destroyed by a new emerging and advancing world power? That was the case with Media-Persia back in 331 BCE who thought that they were totally invincible. They also became very cruel and corrupt and were all but totally destroyed by Alexander the Great, the emerging Grecian world Empire. Alexander’s army was only one tenth of the Medio-Persian army and yet he totally routed them. Today it is claimed that the USA has a military ten times the size of Russia’s and the USA feels invincible! 

Rome was at its heyday and morally totally both cruel and corrupt, and was suddenly totally destroyed by what the ‘elite of Rome’ considered ‘just barbarians’.

Other information about the Fall of Communism in Russia;

During the 1990’s George Soros, front man for the Illuminati almost wrecked the financial system of Russia through corrupt banking. Putin used to be in the ILLUMINATI fold, but when he took over Russia in 1999 he had a new AGENDA. That was to make Russia great again & to return the power to the people instead of big government.

Putin truly is charismatic and knows how to carry the audience. I don’t see any other politician like him in the West. I can very much see why people like him.

Putin has also really tried to befriend the West and even the Western Media. Unfortunately, the Western Media continues to lie about Putin and Russia. Putin seems to be for peace with Western Europe and the USA, but the West is always deliberately trying to provoke Russia to war. A really stupid move on the part of the West, which kept us all on the edge of our chairs when recently the USA, UK and France launched a missile attack in Syria. The whole world wondered what Russia would do. Wisely Russia backed down and didn’t get involved with the Middle East conflict directly. As I said before Putin has proved himself to be both wise and pragmatic.

Putin is portrayed as the tough guy, black-belt & is apparently trying to venture down a new road of politics.

Two very significant dates: 19.08.1991  & 31.12.1999

Looking at these two sets of numbers one sees that the first number is a PRIME NUMBER 19 OR 31. The next number is a COMPOSITE NUMBER 08 OR 12 The next number is a PRIME NUMBER 19 The final number is COMPOSITE 91 or 99

Between these two dates is 8 YEARS 4 MONTHS 12 DAYS = All even numbers and  composite numbers

Both dates have 999 in them. Both have 111 in them. The only others digits are 0,8 and 2

If you subtract 111 from 999 you get 888

These above dates are peculiar to the numbers 999,111, and 888

Do these particular numbers carry a ‘HIDDEN’ message for the initiated of the COMMUNIST PARTY or ELITE?

Here is the apparent meaning of those numbers:

*** 888 SIGNIFIES: ‘Infinite flow in your life: ABUNDANCE’

*** 999 SIGNIFIIES: completion; a sign to move on; a point of closure

*** 111 The number 111 is a sign that the gate of opportunity is open. The thoughts you are thinking are manifesting at record speed. It is the ideal time to make use of this manifestation. If you wait too long, you might miss your chance.






WHAT IF? At some stage or other large amounts of money were given to KEY COMMUNISTS. They were told to 'flee to the West' and invest their money in football clubs, casinos and other lucrative businesses that gave phenomenal returns for the money & probably around late1991. They were warned that they must make money for the COMMUNISTS in RUSSIA and that if they betrayed this trust then they would be killed in a horrible way- such as plutonium poisoning.

Between 1991 and 1999 Russia had improved financially but very few knew about it. Just those at the TOP. When Putin came to power on 31/12/1999 the game changed again. Putin decide to get rid of all the corrupt foreign bankers inside Russia who were undermining Russia including the direct influence of George Soros. Putin proceeded to use policies that made Russia wealthy. Putin is currently some sort of dictator. He held elections some months ago and won by a large majority, but was it Democratic elections? Will Russia remain a Capitalist country indefinitely, or will it some day in the future return to some 'altered type of RED COMMUNISM'? 

19/08/91 The exact date that I had the dream and on which Yeltsin declared Communism to be dead in Russia. The numerology here is importance as the first two digits and last two are a mirror image of each other and they pivot around the number 8. The number 8 turns out to be the significant number.

MY DREAM on 19/08/91

In the dream I was looking at a very large MAP of EUROPE.

When I first of all looked at the Map, Russia appeared to be RED.

All of a sudden, the RED colour of RUSSIA turned bright GREEN. After a period of time, the GREEN colour of RUSSIA turned back to RED, only a darker RED and this time it had the distinct Hammer and sickle emblem over RED RUSSIA.

Remarkably when I saw the re-immergence of RED COMMUNISTIC RUSSIA in the dream, the map of Russia was as it is today in 2018 vis a vis without all the separate countries of the former Soviet empire.

So the dream clearly showed the  future, as when I had the dream most of the former Soviet countries were still yet part Soviet Russia.

There is no way I could have know that all the Soviet countries would become independent of Russia itself. For this reason alone I believe it is indeed possible that my dream is prophetic. Only time will prove whether that its correct or not.

The next significant thing which I noticed was as one would see in a movie that shows a WAR MAP with advancing armies indicated by black arrows.

I saw thick BLACK ARROWS pointing out of RUSSIA and going in all directions.

I heard a voice tell me that RUSSIA would take over ALL of EUROPE, both EAST and WEST in only 24 hours.

I also saw missiles being fired over the top of the UK but they were headed for the USA. There was pandemonium and people were trying to escape over to Switzerland a neutral country. Many people were jumping into taxis to try and get out of the UK and to a safer country. Especially foreigners like Chinese and Japanese for some strange reason.

I don’t know if this dream is prophetic or not, but with all of the strange happenings with both Russia and the USA and the Middle-East over the past 6 months, I thought it might be prudent to tell others about this dream for the first time ever.

Another important thing: It was as if all of Europe knew that Russia would change back to RED Communism and that they would take over EUROPE without having to fire a shot, as it had all been arranged well in advance, with the European countries.

When I first had this dream 27 years ago, at that time, it would have seemed totally impossible for such a thing to happen.


1) China has become much stronger and is still COMMUNIST but with a distinct Capitalistic flavour and is getting stronger militarily by the day. The chairman of China recently made himself chairman for life. That sounds like a dictator. What does that all mean? Well when it comes to control China is communist; when it comes to finance they are very much Capitalist. China has learned from Russia’s mistakes of the eighties that Communism can’t be so exclusive but has to involve outside financing in order to thrive and move onto the next level.

2) Putin has transformed a very weakened RUSSIA into a strong nation that is progressing very quickly militarily.

3) Russia and China are the best of friends and work together. That is very odd, if Russia is no longer communist.

4) The EU COUNTRiES are nearly all sympathetic to SOCIALISM and many of them are Socialistic although claiming they are Capitalistic.

5) The European policy of REFUGE integration is a UN-sponsored idea. The UN is COMMUNIST.

6)The USA is already infested with Socialistic ideas and Communists. Obama was a communist and almost managed to sell the USA down the toilet to China and perhaps even Russia.

7) China is already taking over the USA buy buying up lots of property there.

8) THE UN has over 300,000 foreign troops stationed in the USA. The vast majority of whom are either Russian or Chinese. Why is that the case?

9) There are many in the USA that want the USA to fall to COMMUNISM

10) Pope Francis is a Jesuit and also a COMMUNIST.

11) The only nation powerful enough to withstand COMMUNISM is the USA and therefore it is very likely to be totally destroyed in order to advance world Communism

12) The BIG QUESTION IS: Is Russia really DEMOCRATIC? Is Putin just a Dictator? Or is something much more sinister afoot here? Has something been orchestrated by the ELITE?

13) According to LENNINIST doctrine: ‘If your enemy is stronger than you are, then pretend to actually be his friend, and when he is off-guard then stab him in the back!’ Is that what former KGB top commander Vladimir Putin has done? According to Gorbachev in 2012 he thought that Putin had become a dictator and that he should not be allowed to be in office yet a third term, as Putin has consolidated a lot of power around himself and dismantled other power structures. After using the West to finance Russia, Putin had all the Bankers arrested and thrown out of Russia. Including the influence of George Soros, the Hungarian born billionaire front man for the ILLUMINATI policy.

14) My impression is that Putin was originally trained by the Illuminati, but has since gone his own way without them. He has set-up a new power structure of Russian bankers and powerful business men, with the promise to make Russia a very great nation again. This would explain the extreme negativity of the Western Media against Putin aand Russia because he is his own boss and not following the whims of the Illuminati Elite of the West. The Western Media are constantly trying to cause Putin and Russia trouble.


Back in President Gorbachev’s time the powers that be realized that they could no longer make any progress with the tight control of the COMMUNIST party over the entire Soviet Union. Gorbachev seemingly came out with the brilliant ideas of Peristroika and Glasnov ‘meaning to modernize & change’. It is true that the Soviet Union had no international debt at the time until the years of Gorbachev when it suddenly jumped from $0 to £120 BILLION INTERNATIONAL DEBT. Why did things change so drastically in Russia at the time 1989-1991.

The truth is Russia may have had nuclear weapons, but most of its infrastructure was out of date and falling apart or obsolete. The Soviet countries were so out of date with cars for example that looked like they were ‘frozen’ in form from the early sixties. Something drastic had to be done to invest Western Wealth attract investment into Russia in order to rescue the dilapidated state  of Russia by the late eighties.

What if some powerful people in Russia got together at the time that Yeltsin dramatically stood on top of a tank which looked like a staged event by the way, and they decided that they wanted a significant change in direction. How did Yeltsin know that his troops would not shoot him when the Soviets were involved in a communist plot to take over Russia again? They had already put the Russian president Gorbachev under house arrest during the Communist Coup of August 1991.

SOURCE: Gorbachev

I propose that the following was deliberately planned by the ‘real powers ‘who ruled Russia at the time.

1) Make Russia rich and powerful again as a Super-Power

2) Appear to be just like Western nations

3) Make a long-term plan to sabotage the USA and Europe from within and cause them to collapse without even having to start a nuclear war, or only a limited one, as the USA won’t be of any use to any nation if it totally destroyed from coast to coast by a full nuclear war!

4) Once the USA had been sabotaged, then RUSSIA AND CHINA would take over the USA through the UN MANDATE.


Henry KISSINGER and other top Elitists visit China and Russia frequently. Why? What do they tell the leaders of those countries?


One World Order, is their Collective Overall Goal.


 'THERE WAS THAT FIRST GRADUAL INFILTRATION and taking over of our thoughts and our education, and even into some of our churches. These principles which they taught were so much similar to our own and yet were so diabolical and fiendish. They pretended to be emissaries of love with a concern for mankind, but were truly motivated by hate, inspired by the very Devil himself.

THEY WORE A BEAUTIFUL MASK OF PEACE and so called freedom and social uplift, but underneath was the cold, hard, cruel, iron, fiendish, demonic power of Satan himself! They crept into our institutions in the form of university professors and high school teachers, and into our churches as moralistic pastors preaching their social gospel, and even into our Government and State Department as those who were concerned about world welfare, the United Nations and One World.

BUT THEY ALWAYS LEFT GOD OUT OF THE PICTURE AND EXALTED MAN and his ability to solve his own problems by his united effort under this great anti-Christ system and One World Government.

GRADUALLY THEY EVEN CREPT INTO OUR VERY MINDS with their doctrine and their teaching deceiving many that could be deceived because they had rejected the truth, until multitudes were open and ready for them and received them with open arms. But many of the hard-core conservative reactionaries, patriots they were called, the nationalists, militarists, ecclesiastical leaders and so on, could not be swayed by the Great Lie.--This diabolical, fiendish, subtle, deceitful, hypnotic suggestion, demoniacally conveyed into the very minds and the spirits of those deceived.

BUT MANY WERE NOT DECEIVED BECAUSE OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH, and many simply resented the fact that they were going to have to give up their way of life, their riches and their wealth.

THESE THOUGHT THAT FORCE WAS OUR ONLY POSSIBLE HOPE OF SURVIVAL to stop this flood of propaganda that was overwhelming and swallowing us up. They thought that the only possible chance was resistance by force and sudden atomic attack to wipe out the Antichrist enemy before they could attack us. Poor fools!

NOW THOSE WHO RESORTED TO THE SWORD HAVE BEEN SLAIN WITH THE SWORD, as our leader once warned us. The anti-Christ agents had thoroughly infiltrated our government agencies and our militaristic establishments so that every move was known by their central intelligence agency in the headquarters of the Antichrist government.

THEY HIT US BEFORE OUR MILITARY LEADERS COULD EVEN PUSH THE BUTTON which would have sent the bombers and the missiles on their way to destroy the enemy. They hit us suddenly and without warning in every potential area of possible retaliation and completely wiped out those potentials, including some of our greatest cities, the seat of government and headquarters of military establishments. Even many of their own agents died in the holocaust as martyrs for their cause because it was the only way that they could possibly knock us out before we attacked them.

BY THE TIME THEY ATTACKED US THEY WERE SO STRONG HERE THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE TO COMPLETELY WIPE US OUT, but just enough to knock out the centres of greatest potential resistance or retaliation. Their own people and their sympathisers and followers here immediately took over and stopped any other possible chance of retaliation.

IT WAS BY TOTAL POWER THAT WE WERE CONQUERED!--The war of words, the war of ideology, the war of ideas, the war of propaganda, the war of infiltration with completely dedicated secret agents, together with that final horrible holocaustic blow of those awful atomic explosions. Some of them were set off at a given signal by their own agents right here in our own land, each themselves dying in the blast, gladly giving their lives for their cause.--What dedication to the doctrine of the Devil! Oh, that some of our brethren had been as dedicated in the days that preceded this awful calamity! 

THE CENTRE OF IT ALL IS THE SAME OLD HARD CORE PHILOSOPHY OF ALL SATANIC CULTS and isms: "Man is basically good and righteous and can save himself." They are substituting their Bible and the teachings and traditions of their anti-Christ system for the Truth of God.

IT WAS TRUE THAT THE CHURCH HAD FAILED. The rich church had even lived selfishly and failed to distribute its goods to the poor.

OUR NATION (USA) HAD LIVED SELFISHLY and failed to help the starving and underprivileged around the world. Our graineries were full to bursting and overflowing and yet millions were starving around the world, and to these the Antichrist told their lies and persuaded them to rise up against us. Yes, we were guilty, we had no excuse. Too much of that propaganda was the truth. It was true, but insidiously used to further their lie.

IT WAS TRUE THAT MANY OF OUR RELIGIOUS LEADERS WERE MERE HYPOCRITES, wolves in sheep's clothing. It was true that many of them only wanted power. They were not concerned about the poor and the humble, the lowly, the sick and the needy. It was true that many of them were much more interested in furthering their particular shibboleth, doctrine, dogma and denomination than they were in furthering the sweet message of the love of Our Leader, the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.




[by D.B.Berg in1960]

“The more thou searchest, the more thou shalt marvel.”
(2 Esdras 4:26)
Thou Shalt Marvel

An Extract Out Of Josephus's Discourse To The Greeks Concerning Hades (The unseen state. Ed)
1. NOW as to Hades, wherein the souls of the of the good things they see, and rejoice in
the righteous and unrighteous are detained, it is necessary to speak of it. Hades is a place
in the world not regularly finished; a subterraneous region, wherein the light of this
world does not shine; from which circumstance, that in this region the light does not
shine, it cannot be but there must be in it perpetual darkness.
This region is allotted as a place of custody for souls, ill which angels are appointed as
guardians to them, who distribute to them temporary punishments, agreeable to every
one's behavior and manners.
2. In this region there is a certain place set apart, as a lake of unquenchable fire,
whereinto we suppose no one hath hitherto been cast; but it is prepared for a day aforedetermined
by God, in which one righteous sentence shall deservedly be passed upon all
men; when the unjust, and those that have been disobedient to God, and have given
honor to such idols as have been the vain operations of the hands of men as to God
himself, shall be adjudged to this everlasting punishment, as having been the causes of
defilement; while the just shall obtain an incorruptible and never- fading kingdom.
These are now indeed confined in Hades, but not in the same place wherein the unjust
are confined.
3. For there is one descent into this region, at whose gate we believe there stands an
archangel with an host; which gate when those pass through that are conducted down by
the angels appointed over souls, they do not go the same way; but the just are guided to
the right hand, and are led with hymns, sung by the angels appointed over that place,
unto a region of light, in which the just have dwelt from the beginning of the world; not
constrained by necessity, but ever enjoying the prospect of the good things they see, and
rejoice in the expectation of those new enjoyments which will be peculiar to every one
of them, and esteeming those things beyond what we have here; with whom there is no
place of toil, no burning heat, no piercing cold, nor are any briers there; but the
countenance of the and of the just, which they see, always smiles them, while they wait
for that rest and eternal new life in heaven, which is to succeed this region.
This place we call The Bosom of Abraham. +++
(There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared
sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid
at his gate, full of sores , And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich
man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass , that the
beggar died , and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also
died , and was buried ; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said , Father Abraham,
have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and
cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said , Son, remember
that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but
now he is comforted , and thou art tormented . And beside all this, between us and you
there is a great gulf fixed : so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot ;
neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said , I pray thee
therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five
brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And
he said , Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent
. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be
persuaded , though one rose from the dead. Luke 16:19-31)
Unique phrase found in a parable of Jesus describing the place where Lazarus went after
death ( Luke 16:19-31 ). It is a figurative phrase that appears to have been drawn from a
popular belief that the righteous would rest by Abraham's side in the world to come, an
opinion described in Jewish literature at the time of Christ. The word kolpos [kovlpo"]
literally refers to the side or lap of a person. Figuratively, as in this case, it refers to a
place of honor reserved for a special guest, similar to its usage in John 13:23. In the case
of Lazarus, the reserved place is special because it is beside Abraham, the father of all
the righteous. The phrase may be synonymous to the paradise promised to the thief on
the cross ( Luke 23:43 ). Together these passages support the conviction that a believer
enjoys immediate bliss at the moment of physical death.
Sam Hamstra, Jr.
4. But as to the unjust, they are dragged by force to the left hand by the angels allotted
for punishment, no longer going with a good-will, but as prisoners driven by violence; to
whom are sent the angels appointed over them to reproach them and threaten them with
their terrible looks, and to thrust them still downwards.
Now those angels that are set over these souls drag them into the neighborhood of hell
itself; who, when they are hard by it, continually hear the noise of it, and do not stand
clear of the hot vapor itself; but when they have a near view of this spectacle, as of a
terrible and exceeding great prospect of fire, they are struck with a fearful expectation of
a future judgment, and in effect punished thereby: and not only so, but where they see
the place [or choir] of the fathers and of the just, even hereby are they punished; for a
chaos deep and large is fixed between them; insomuch that a just man that hath
compassion upon them cannot be admitted, nor can one that is unjust, if he were bold
enough to attempt it, pass over it.
5. This is the discourse concerning Hades, wherein the souls of all men are confined
until a proper season, which God hath determined, when he will make a resurrection of
all men from the dead, not procuring a transmigration of souls from one body to another,
but raising again those very bodies, which you Greeks, seeing to be dissolved, do not
believe [their resurrection].
But learn not to disbelieve it; for while you believe that the soul is created, and yet is
made immortal by God, according to the doctrine of Plato, and this in time, be not
incredulous; but believe that God is able, when he hath raised to life that body which
was made as a compound of the same elements, to make it immortal; for it must never be
said of God, that he is able to do some things, and unable to do others.
We have therefore believed that the body will be raised again; for although it be
dissolved, it is not perished; for the earth receives its remains, and preserves them; and
while they are like seed, and are mixed among the more fruitful soil, they flourish, and
what is sown is indeed sown bare grain, but at the mighty sound of God the Creator, it
will sprout up, and be raised in a clothed and glorious condition, though not before it has
been dissolved, and mixed [with the earth].
So that we have not rashly believed the resurrection of the body; for although it be
dissolved for a time on account of the original transgression, it exists still, and is cast
into the earth as into a potter's furnace, in order to be formed again, not in order to rise
again such as it was before, but in a state of purity, and so as never to he destroyed any
And to every body shall its own soul be restored.
And when it hath clothed itself with that body, it will not be subject to misery, but, being
itself pure, it will continue with its pure body, and rejoice with it, with which it having
walked righteously now in this world, and never having had it as a snare, it will receive
it again with great gladness.
But as for the unjust, they will receive their bodies not changed, not freed from diseases
or distempers, nor made glorious, but with the same diseases wherein they died; and
such as they were in their unbelief, the same shall they be when they shall be faithfully
6. For all men, the just as well as the unjust, shall be brought before God the word: for to
him hath the Father committed all judgment : and he, in order to fulfill the will of his
Father, shall come as Judge, whom we call Christ."
l Peter 3:18-20 also mentions regarding the above: "For Christ also hath once suffered
for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the
flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits
in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God
waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight
souls were saved by water.
“The Lake of Fire and Brimstone signifies a fire burning with brimstone; the word
'brimstone' or sulfur defines the character of the fire. The Greek word THEION
translated 'brimstone' is exactly the same word THEION which means 'divine.'
Sulfur was sacred to the deity among the ancient Greeks; and was used to fumigate, to
purify, and to cleanse and consecrate to the deity; for this purpose they burned it in their
incense. In Homer's Iliad (16:228), one is spoken of as purifying a goblet with fire and
brimstone. The verb derived from THEION is THEIOO, which means to hallow, to
make divine, or to dedicate to a god (See Liddell and Scott Greek-English Lexicon, 1897
To any Greek, or any trained in the Greek language, a 'lake of fire and brimstone' would
mean a 'lake of divine purification.' The idea of judgment need not be excluded. Divine
purification and divine consecration are the plain meaning in ancient Greek. In the
'standard theology' explanation, this fundamental meaning of the word is entirely left
out, and nothing but eternal torment is incorrectly associated with it.”

For most people Easter is known as a Christian Celebration of the Death of the Saviour on the cross on Calvary on the hills just outside Jerusalem. In any other situation wouldn’t celebrating someone’s death be considered very morbid?

Why then the difference with the Death of Jesus Christ?

The most important thing that happened at Easter was that Christ sacrificed Himself for the sins of the whole world, so that we would all have a pardon before God Himself, if we simply embraced Christ through simply believing on Christ as God’s only Begotten Son and as the Saviour of the whole world.

John 3.36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.

Of course, the Crucifixion of Christ was a very important event, but even more important was His miraculous RESSURECTION which proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that He indeed was the Son of God.

Since most writers concentrate on the same few Bible verses each Easter, I wanted to write something new and about something which most people are not so aware of.

I wasn’t going to write about Easter, as I thought that so many people already write about Easter. However, my wife pointed out to me that perhaps I should write about the less known things concerning Easter, as that might get some attention?!



The following is talking about the fantastic voyage of when Christ died and then spent 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth.

This description is from a fascinating book called  ‘Journey to Gragau’ by Alan Trenholm about someone’s trip to Hell and back, and where he talks about Christ’s visit to Hell some 2000 years ago, which I found very interesting. I hope that you do too.

‘So when Jesus came here after His death on the cross, preaching salvation from death through faith in Him, it created quite a sensation. Jesus was the first one to come back to life after dying—and He really was dead, not like those who are revived from death in a near death experience.’

“But after Jesus visited, these dark prisons changed radically. As Jesus Himself explained, ‘I am able to come into the house of Satan and work the works of God openly because I have overpowered and bound him."'

"When He died it created quite a sensation on Earth too!” I added. “I believe there was a terrible earthquake at the time, and the powers of Hell were shaken. "So through Adam and Eve's sin, death and Satan sort of took over the world? He became the god of this world, especially the spiritual side of our world?"

"Satan is a spirit, and although he wants to stay way up there in heavenly regions, more and more he is being driven down and confined to the dark realms of the physical. Places farther down, deep within the Earth. Few children of light go there, for it is a place of great despair and fearful waiting for judgment.

"Explain what the Second Death is," I asked Elatia, curious to learn how the souls of the dead were able to die again.

"It is both a place and an appointed time where God destroys the wicked spirits. Until now only the body dies, whereas the spirit lives on. When children of God leave their bodies, their spirits are translated and changed. Jesus compared it to being born again so that they may see and enter the Kingdom of God with a new spirit, truly free from their former selves and sins, so they can go up and be with the Lord. Unregenerate spirits come here to Hell and are given a little time to consider their lives while they wait for the final judgment. In the end when all the great record books are opened, and the earth and the sea have to give up their dead, all the spirits that ever existed will stand before the Judgment Seat of God's Great White Throne. Those found written in the great Book of Life will live, but those not found written there, who have remained rebellious and recalcitrant, who choose death rather than life, shall be put to death by being cast into a great lake of spiritual fire. That is the Second Death.

  “However, the spirits that have been renewed by God because of their faith in Jesus, are no longer subject to the law of sin and death. God takes them to Heaven with Him. Jesus frees them. The god of this world is usually allowed to destroy their body, but that is all he can do. He has no power over their recreated spirits, and also we have a regenerated body to look forward to. Similar to the one you now enjoy. At the second resurrection we will be reunited with an improved version of our physical body.

“Jesus went to Hell when He died, but the Devil had no hold on Him, and He took the keys of death and Hell from Satan.

He then went to Paradise and spoke to all the saints of old waiting for Him there. On the third day He began a triumphal march right through Hell with all of His saints, and began to witness to all the spirits in Hell. And He commanded that a bridge be set across the gap. Many of the deceased saints then appeared in Jerusalem as witnesses to the people. This was the first resurrection. Those were incredible times, full of marvellous triumphs and terrible atrocities.

Tomorrow is the anniversary of His victorious march through Hell.” “Well, it sounds like a very great event that we know little about! Satan has kept the accounts of Jesus’ conquest as quiet as possible. These people had lived good lives, believing that someday a Saviour would come. From what you are saying I am seeing that you don’t have to be a church-going Christian to get into Heaven, but you do need to believe that God is love.

“Jesus is the Saviour of the world, but few realize that even if you didn’t know about Him personally in this life, you can still learn about Him and accept Him even after you are dead. Jesus said, ‘The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live’.”


'The air was acrid and thick with smoke that made breathing difficult. At last we entered a level containing a large cell with a number of people  in chains. All around them was an atmosphere of doom and gloom. They seemed to be the most hopeless and lost souls of all behind the grim prison doors that appeared securely locked. But to my surprise Elatia said happily, “Well, here they are.” And she took her sword and struck the lock. Instantly the door opened to my surprise and to the amazement of the prisoners inside, who let out a cheer and began to praise the Lord for His great love and mercy.

Then in a clear, loud voice Elatia delivered her message to the prisoners.

“People of San Pedro, I come with a message of hope and promise from the Prince of Love who gave His life a ransom for your souls. I want you to know that He is able to deliver you even from this darkest corner of Hell. He said, ’I’m the resurrection and the life and whosoever believeth in Me though he were dead, yet shall he live.’ [1] He shall never ever die. He says, ‘Come unto Me ye who are weary and fainting; though ye sit in great darkness I will be a light for you.’”

Then an old man that appeared to be their leader, who I was told was called Wantu the Wild One, said, “Fair maiden sent by the Prince of Light and Love, what hope is there for us here? For we have all sinned and deserve this fate.”

Elatia replied, “Jesus said, ‘ If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

While Elatia delivered this moving message of hope and promise to the prisoners, many came forth declaring their need for Jesus.

Elatia quickly and quietly recounted to me the story behind Wantu and his band. He was once a chieftain of a band of mountain people who lived in relative peace until their land was taken over. They lived as robbers then, attacking innocent travelers that came through their mountains. One time they fell upon a small band of travelers, killing them all, but one man  who was dying spoke to them in their own tongue. He told him he had come to set them free. That the God of Light had visited him and given him a message to bring to the people. The man died in Wantu's arms. Only days after that, a great army came and hunted Wantu and his people down and slaughtered them and took Wantu prisoner. After much time in prison, seeing the evils of war and killing and robbing, Wantu was visited by a man of God, who told him the story of Jesus.  

But Wantu died shortly after. In time, in Hell’s prison with those people he had led, he found the courage to turn to the God of love and light spoken of by the traveler, and he felt remorse for the sad plight that his people were in and wanted to somehow right the wrong.

Elatia then turned to me and asked if I would lead them in prayer to receive Jesus. I was speechless. Here she was giving me this honor which she had worked for and, I imagined, had planned for herself.

In the best voice I could muster in that dark prison cell I asked them to pray the prayer with me. Somehow in the spirit world it didn’t matter what language you spoke, everyone heard you in their own language.

“Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner and deserve to perish in this place, but I believe that you came to set me free from the punishment for sin, which is death. I believe that You took upon Yourself the pain and suffering and hopeless despair, and died in my place. Then, I believe that God raised You from the dead and restored life to Your body, conquering death and Hell. Oh Jesus, please come into my heart, forgive my sins and grant me eternal life with You. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen.”

I opened my eyes and beheld the most wonderful miracle. The entire group had received Jesus by faith and were filled with the Holy Spirit. These were praising God with all of their hearts and their bonds were being ripped off and cast away. It’s hard to describe the joy of seeing a soul in darkness transformed into a child of light. The blackness and darkness of despair was falling away like autumn leaves, and the spring of eternal life was bursting out everywhere.'  

 John 11:25. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. John 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

John 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice.








    "This Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander, Caesar and Napoleon. Without science and learning He shed more light on things human and things divine than all philosophers and scholars combined. Without the eloquence of schools, He spoke such Words of Life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet. Without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times." Phillip Schaff, noted historian.


    1. Yes! To the unprejudiced historian, the historical facts regarding Jesus are as definite and evident as those of Julius Caesar. Not only do we find an accurate portrait of Him in the documents of the New Testament, but dozens of ancient non-Biblical manuscripts confirm that Jesus was a genuine historical figure who lived in Palestine in the early part of the first century.
    2. Concerning the testimony of the many ancient secular accounts of Jesus, the Encyclopedia Britannica states:
    "These independent accounts prove that in ancient times even the OPPONENTS of Christianity never doubted the historicity of Jesus, which was disputed for the first time--and on inadequate grounds by several authors during the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th centuries."


    3. If any adjective were to describe Jesus, it would be "UNIQUE"! His MESSAGE was unique. The CLAIMS He made regarding Himself were unique. His MIRACLES were unique. And the INFLUENCE He has had on the World is unsurpassed by any other.
    4. One very outstanding and undeniably unique aspect of Jesus' life is that literally hundreds of detailed PREDICTIONS and PROPHECIES were made by ancient prophets and seers, many centuries before He was born. Specific details regarding His birth, life and death, that no mere mortal man could possibly have fulfilled!
    5. In the first books of the Bible, known as the "Old Testament," over 300 such predictions about the "Messiah" or "Saviour" can be found. The discovery of hundreds of ancient Old Testament manuscripts by archaeologists during this century has proven without a doubt that these prophecies were indeed written CENTURIES BEFORE this man called Jesus was born.
    6. Here is a small sampling of the kind of specific predictions we're talking about: In 750 B.C., the prophet Isaiah made the astounding prediction that:


    7. 7-1/2 centuries later, a young virgin girl in Israel named Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel, who announced to her that she would bear a Son Who would be called Emmanuel, which means "God with us." The books of the Bible which were written after Jesus came to Earth, the "New Testament," tell us that, "Mary said to the angel, 'How can this be, seeing I have not LAIN with any man?' And the angel answered, 'The Spirit of GOD shall come upon you, and the power of the ALMIGHTY shall overshadow you! Therefore that Holy One which shall be born of you shall be called the SON OF GOD!'"  Luke 1:26-35 .
    8. So even the very BEGINNING of His life on Earth His conception and birth--were not only unique, but MIRACULOUS, in that the simple and humble young girl who became His mother had never slept with a man! In fact, the Bible tells us that the news of her pregnancy was so shocking to the young man to whom she was engaged to be married, Joseph, that when he learned about it he promptly decided to break off the engagement and call off the wedding! Until the angel of the Lord appeared to him also, and instructed him to stay with her and rear and protect the very special child that she was carrying.
    9. A full 800 YEARS before Jesus was born, the prophet Micah foretold the exact village where the Messiah would be born:


    10. Although His earthly parents lived in the town of Nazareth, 100 miles to the north of Bethlehem, a decree from Rome demanded that all families return to their ancestral homes to register for a worldwide census. The decree came just as Mary's child was due to be born. Thus God used a Roman emperor, Caesar Augustus, to help bring about the fulfillment of Micah's prophecy. Joseph and Mary journeyed to Bethlehem, and upon their arrival, Mary went into labour, and as the Gospels inform us, "Jesus was born in BETHLEHEM of Judea" ( Matthew 2:1 ), just as the prophet Micah predicted.
    11. Micah's prophecy also tells us that the Messiah "Has been of old, from days of ETERNITY." Jesus Himself said, "Before ABRAHAM was (around 2000 B.C.), I AM."  John 8:58 . Abraham was the forefather of the Jews and Arabs, who lived about 2,000 YEARS before Jesus was born to Mary. So Jesus was referring here to His pre-existence with God before His life on Earth in the form of a man.
    12. Though born in Bethlehem, Jesus grew up in Nazareth. In His first recorded public address there, He openly declared that He indeed WAS the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies regarding the Messiah. While attending the local house of worship, He stood up before the crowd and read a prophecy from the book of the prophet Isaiah. In the passage, Isaiah predicted that the Messiah would be anointed with the Spirit of God to "preach Good News to the poor, to heal the broken hearted, to give freedom to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind and to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord." Isaiah 61:1,2 . The New Testament tells us that after He read this prophecy aloud to the congregation, Jesus told them, "TODAY is this Scripture FULFILLED in your ears!" Luke 4:18-21 .
    13. Another outstanding prophecy regarding the Messiah was made by Israel's King David around the year 1000 B.C., or over 10 CENTURIES before Jesus was born. In his prophecy, David gave details of a cruel and agonising death which he himself never suffered:

    "I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax, it has melted within me...Like a pack of dogs, they have surrounded me; a company of evil doers has encircled me. They have pierced my hands and my feet. They divide my clothing among them and cast lots for my garment." Psalm 22:14-18 .

    14. King David died a peaceful, natural death, so we know he was not talking about himself in this passage of Scripture. But being a prophet, he predicted with unerring accuracy the circumstances surrounding the cruel death on the cross of the Messiah, the CHRIST that was to come. Let's examine some of the details outlined in the above prophecy:
    15. "I am poured out like heart is melted within me." Jesus not only poured out His life for us spiritually, but the New Testament tells us that shortly after He died, while He was still hanging on the cross, "one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately BLOOD AND WATER FLOWED OUT." John 19:34 . Modern medical authorities have affirmed that in the case of heart rupture--when a human heart literally bursts open under extreme stress and trauma--the blood collects in the pericardium, the membranous sac that encloses the heart and the roots of the main blood vessels. This blood then separates into a sort of bloody clot and a watery serum, thus when the soldier pierced His side, His life was LITERALLY, "poured forth like WATER." (Unwittingly, this Roman soldier fulfilled another prophecy, "They will look upon Me whom they have PIERCED," a prophecy given by the Prophet Zechariah around 500 B.C. Zechariah 12:10 .)
    16. "All my bones are out of joint." This is one of the horrors of death by crucifixion; the weight of the victim's body literally pulls his arms out of their sockets.
    17. "Like a pack of dogs...a company of evil doers has encircled me." The New Testament tells us that Jesus' wicked and vengeful religious enemies, the Scribes and the Pharisees, gathered around Him as He was nailed on the cross, mocking and reviling Him.  Matthew 27:39-44 .
    18. "They have pierced my hands and my feet." This is probably the most astounding prediction within this prophecy. Crucifixion was not practiced by the Jews of David's time. Their religious laws demanded that criminals be executed by STONING. But God showed His Prophet, David, how the Messiah would die 10 CENTURIES LATER, executed at the hands of an empire that did not even exist in David's day, ROME, whose principal means of executing criminals was CRUCIFIXION!
    19. "They divide my clothing among them and cast lots for my garment." In the Gospels of the New Testament we find the almost incredible fulfillment of this prophecy: "When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took His clothes, and DIVIDED them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment (a long robe-like tunic) remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. So they said one to another, 'Let us not tear it, but let us CAST LOTS to decide whose it shall be.'" John 19:23,24 .
    20. In 487 B.C., the Prophet Zechariah predicted: "And I said unto them, if you think well, give me my PRICE; and if not, keep it. So they paid me 30 PIECES OF SILVER." Zechariah 11:12
    21. On the night that Jesus was arrested by His enemies, the New Testament tells us that, "One of the twelve Apostles, Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said to them, 'What will you give me if I deliver Him to you?', and they counted out for him 30 PIECES OF SILVER." Matthew 26:14,15 .
    22. Imagine! Over five hundred years before the event took place, God's Prophet, Zechariah, predicted the EXACT "PRICE" that Jesus' enemies would pay to His traitorous disciple, Judas! In the next verse of Zechariah's prophecy, he goes into even more astounding details:

    "And the Lord said, 'Cast it unto the POTTER--the handsome price at which they priced Me!' So the 30 pieces of silver were taken and CAST TO THE POTTER IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD." Zechariah 11:13 .

    23. The New Testament tells us that, "When Judas saw that Jesus was condemned, he repented, and RETURNED the 30 PIECES OF SILVER to the chief priests of the Jews, and he cast down the pieces of silver in the TEMPLE. Then the chief priests picked up the silver pieces and said, 'It is against our law to put it into our treasury because it is blood-money.' So they used the money to buy a POTTER'S FIELD, to bury foreigners in." Matthew 27:3-6 . The 30 pieces of silver were literally "CAST to the POTTER in the HOUSE of the LORD"! Just as Zechariah predicted 500 years earlier!
    24. In 712 B.C., the prophet Isaiah predicted that the Son of God would "be given a GRAVE WITH THE WICKED, and with the RICH in His DEATH." Isaiah 53:9 .
    25. Jesus' bitter religious enemies condemned Him as a CRIMINAL, as a WICKED man, thus as He died, the Bible tells us "there were two ROBBERS crucified with Him." Matthew 27:38 . After His body was removed from the cross, "a RICH MAN named Joseph of Arimathaea went to Pilate and pleaded for the body of Jesus, and when Joseph had taken the body, he laid it IN HIS OWN NEW TOMB." Matthew 27:57-60 . A "GRAVE WITH THE RICH!"
    26. 1,000 YEARS before Jesus was born, the Spirit of God prophesied through King David that the Saviour would be resurrected from the dead: "God will not leave His soul in the grave, neither will He suffer His Holy One to see corruption or decay." Psa.16:10 .
    27. King David died and was buried in a grave, and HIS flesh saw corruption and decay. But JESUS was raised from the grave three days after His death!--As the Angel said to the mourners who came to Jesus' tomb, "He is not here, but is RISEN! Why do you seek the living among the dead?" Lk.24:5,6 .
    28. What mere human can choose his own birthplace? Or what mortal man can or WOULD cause the officials of a foreign government to order his death by a terribly agonising execution? How could anyone manipulate their bitter enemies to pay a specific price for their betrayal, mock and revile them as they are dying, much less cause a band of soldiers to gamble for their clothing and pierce their side AFTER they've died, & cause a rich man to bury their body in his own personal tomb? Yet Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled not only these, but OVER 300 MORE specific predictions regarding His birth, life, ministry, death and resurrection! Truly He was and is "UNIQUE" in every sense of the word!
    29. Not one of the great recognised religious leaders not Moses, not Buddha, not Confucius, not Mohammed ever claimed to be God. True, some have been deified by their followers after they died, but none ever personally claimed to be Deity. That is, with the exception of Jesus Christ. In fact, He not only CLAIMED to be the Son of God, God manifest in human flesh, but He CONVINCED a great portion of the World that He in fact IS God's Son.
    30. This is probably THE greatest difference between Jesus and all of the other great philosophers, teachers, prophets and gurus throughout the ages. Although many of them spoke and taught ABOUT love and ABOUT God, Jesus claimed that He WAS Love, that He WAS God's Love for the World. Thus He really knew what He was talking about! Either He was RIGHT, or He was terribly WRONG. Either He was good, and spoke the truth, or He was evil, a deceiver and a liar!
    31. The famous intellectual and former professor of Cambridge University, C.S. Lewis, expressed it this way:
    "There is a really foolish thing that people often say about Him: 'I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God.' That is one thing that we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things that Jesus said would not be 'a great moral teacher'. He would either be a lunatic on a level with a man who claims he is a poached egg or else He would be the Devil of Hell! You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: Or else a mad man or something worse.
    32. "You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronising nonsense about His being a 'great human teacher'. He has not left that option open to us, He did not intend to."
    33. Another unlikely authority on such matters, the emperor & conqueror of nations, Napoleon Bonaparte, also rightly recognised the absolute uniqueness of Jesus, & expressed it in these words:
    "I know men, and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the World there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon LOVE, and at this hour millions of men would die for Him."


    34. God LOVES us and wanted us to know His Love. But He knows that He--the great Creator of the Universe--is simply too great a concept for us to comprehend or even imagine! He says, "As high as the heavens are above the Earth, so high are MY ways above YOUR ways, and My thoughts above your thoughts!"  Isaiah 55:9 . He also tells us, "Even the Heaven of heavens cannot contain Me!"  1Kings 8:27 . None of us can really grasp just how great God is, how marvellous and wonderful He is, far beyond the minds of men and the wildest stretch of our imaginations!
    35. But because He loves us and wanted us to know His Love and Salvation, He sent His "only begotten SON"--Jesus--into the World to show us what He Himself is like.
    36. Although He was literally the Ruler & King of the Universe, He chose not to be born in a fine palace with the elite & powerful members of the governments of Man in attendance. Instead, He was born in the humblest & most lowly of circumstances, on the dirty floor of a barn amidst the cattle & the asses, wrapped in rags & laid to rest in the animals' feed trough.
    37. His earthly stepfather, Joseph, was a humble carpenter with whom He lived & laboured, conforming to our own human ways of life, custom, language & living. Thus He personally EXPERIENCED life as we know it, & learned to understand & love us better, to communicate with us on the lowly level of our own limited human understanding. He learned to LOVE Mankind. He saw our suffering & had great compassion on us, longing not only to heal our sick & broken bodies, but also to save our souls and broken hearts!
    38. When Jesus began His life's work, He went about everywhere doing good. Helping people, loving children, healing heartaches, strengthening tired bodies, and bringing God's Love to all whom He could. He not only preached His message, but He LIVED it among us as one of us. He not only ministered to Man's spiritual needs, but He spent a great deal of time ministering to their physical & material needs, miraculously healing them when they were sick, giving sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, cleansing lepers, raising the dead. He fed the crowds when they were hungry, & did all He could to share His life & His Love!


    39. Jesus said, "I and my Father are ONE."  John 10:30 . Before being born to Mary and living in a fleshly human body, He and His Heavenly Father were together in very close personal Heavenly fellowship, something He had to forsake while He was down here on Earth.
    40. The Bible tells us, "In the BEGINNING was the WORD (Jesus) and the Word was WITH God and the Word WAS God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made...And the Word (Jesus) was made FLESH and lived AMONG us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the one and only Son of the Father." John 1:1,2,14 .
    41. Just before He was arrested and crucified, knowing that He would soon be reunited with His Heavenly Father, Jesus prayed: "And now, Father, glorify Me along with Yourself and restore Me to such majesty and honour in Your presence as I had with You BEFORE THE WORLD WAS MADE...for You loved Me BEFORE the foundation of the World." John 17:5,24 .


    42. He called Himself the Son of Man because He was HUMAN, He was born of a woman just like the rest of us. He had the same kind of body that we have, He had the same feelings that we have, the same human limitations we have, He felt the same kind of weariness and pain.
    43. The Creator of all things willingly stripped Himself of His unlimited power and became a tiny helpless infant. The Source of all wisdom and knowledge had to study and learn to read and write. He left His throne in Heaven where innumerable angels worshipped Him, where all the forces of the Universe were at His command, and He took the place of a servant scoffed at, ridiculed, persecuted and ultimately killed by the very ones He came to save.
    44. The Bible tells us that Jesus is "a High Priest Who is touched with the feeling of our weaknesses, for He was in all points tempted the same way WE are, yet without sin."  Hebrews 4:15 . Imagine! The Son of God literally became a citizen of this World, a member of humanity, a man of flesh, in order to reach us with His Love, prove to us His compassion and concern, and help us to understand His Truth in simple childlike terms that we could grasp.


    45. God has always spoken to people in many ways: Through the beauty and wonder of His Creation, through His prophets and messengers, and through His written Word. But the CLEAREST revelation of Himself--of His character, of His Love is found in His SON, Jesus, Whom He calls "the Word."
    46. Words are the means by which we EXPRESS ourselves, by which we reveal our thoughts, our feelings, our character. And JESUS is the means by which GOD expresses Himself to us. God's most outstanding means of communication with us, the way that He chose to communicate His Love to the World, was by His Own Son, Jesus.


    47. Yes. But He not only gave us God's message and God's teachings, God's Love, but He IS God's message, He IS God's Love to us.
    48. Jesus, the living Word, revealed God's feelings to us in a way that we could understand and relate to. For example,  Isaiah 53:3  tells us, "He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief." He wept over the grief of His friends, over the suffering of humanity, and even over Jerusalem, a city that rejected its Saviour and was therefore doomed to destruction.
    49. Jesus was so merciful, so kind and kind-hearted. There were times when He was wearied, worn and virtually exhausted from constantly ministering to the crowds that thronged Him. On one occasion He tried to retire from the busy scene for a little rest and recuperation, but the Bible tells us that when He saw the multitudes who needed His help, He had COMPASSION upon them. He felt so SORRY for them that despite the weariness and pain He felt, He went out and healed ALL that came to Him, and taught them all the wonderful Words of God's Kingdom of Love. Matthew 9:36 ;  Mark 6:31-34 .
    50. There were also times when God's ANGER blazed through Jesus, the Living Word, against pretense and hypocrisy. He told the self-righteous leaders of the ruling religious hierarchy of His day, "If I had not come and spoken unto you, you would not be guilty of sin, but now I have come and EXPOSED you, so you have no covering for your sin!" John 15:22 .
    51. Actually, most of the time He had very little to do with the lofty, rich-robed, powerful and wealthy religious leaders, the Scribes and the Pharisees. Except when they insisted on annoying Him and raising critical questions, doubts and accusations among those He was teaching. Then He unleashed scathing rebukes against them, publicly exposing them as the "blind leaders of the blind" that they were ( Matthew 15:14 ), even telling them on occasion that they were like "whitewashed SEPULCHRES, tombs, which, although they appeared beautiful, clean and holy OUTWARDLY, were full of rottenness, corruption and stinking dead men's bones WITHIN!" Matthew 23:27,28 . These religious leaders considered themselves to be the most "righteous and holy" people in town, but Jesus exposed them for the hypocrites, liars, robbers and cheaters of the poor that they were, which of course infuriated them.
    52. But most of the time Jesus avoided the self-satisfied religionists, and spent His time helping and loving the poor, the common man, speaking to them, healing them, feeding them and most importantly, giving them the spiritual answers, Love, forgiveness and Truth that they longed for.
    53. The Bible says that He mingled with and preached to the fishermen, drunks, prostitutes, tax collectors and sinners, and "the COMMON people heard Him GLADLY." Mark 12:37 . But when He went into the temple and gave His message to the RELIGIOUS leaders, they mobbed Him, threw Him out and finally crucified Him!


    54. Jesus' message that all that the people had to do was to simply "love God with all their heart, and love their neighbour as themselves" ( Matthew 22:37-39 ), LIBERATED them from the dictatorial stranglehold and control that their religious leaders held over them. His teachings snatched the people out from under the established religion's control, a development that filled the religious leaders with fear and envy. They reasoned, "If we let Him alone, ALL men will believe on Him, & the Romans will come and take away both our temple and our influence!" John 11:47,48 .
    55. These bitter religious foes finally had Jesus arrested and brought to trial on false charges of sedition and subversion. Although the Roman governor found Him innocent, he was pressured and persuaded by the influential High Priests to execute Him. When Jesus' enemies came to arrest Him, He assured His disciples, "They couldn't even TOUCH Me without My Father's permission! If I would but raise My little finger, He would send tens of thousands of angels to rescue Me!"-- Matthew 26:53 .--But instead, He CHOSE to die.--For you and me! Nobody TOOK His life from Him, He laid it down, He GAVE His life of His Own free will and accord. See  John 10:11, 17,18 .
    56. But even His death did not satisfy His bitter and vengeful enemies! To ensure that His followers couldn't steal His body and claim He had risen from the dead as He had said He would these false religious leaders had a huge stone placed over the entrance to His tomb, and posted a group of Roman soldiers there to guard it. A scheme that proved futile, as these same guards became eyewitnesses to the greatest miracle of all. Three days after His lifeless body was laid to rest in that cold tomb, He AROSE from the dead, victoriously conquering death and Hell and the grave!


    57. In the same text of the Bible where we read the story of His life on Earth, we also find many specific, definite claims that Jesus made regarding Himself. Claims that you can take at face value and put to the TEST right now. Here are a few examples in Jesus' Own Words:
    58."I am the LIGHT of the World. He that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of life."  John 8:12 . All of us have had the experience of being caught in the dark before and wishing we had a light so we could see, so we could make our way safely past any dangers, avoid any falls etc. Well, spiritually speaking, when we do not know God and are out of fellowship with Him, we are in SPIRITUAL darkness.
    59. Would you like to get RID of all the darkness in your life? Just like turning a light on immediately chases all of the darkness out of a blackened room, so Jesus will chase all of the SPIRITUAL darkness, oppression, fear and evil out of your life if you will just ask Him to come into your heart! Once you have received the "Light of the World"Jesus into your heart, all of the powers of evil and the dark experiences of life will never be able to quench it!

    "ALL power is given unto Me in Heaven and in Earth!" Matthew 28:18 .

    60. The Devil and all of his evil spirits TREMBLE at even the NAME of Jesus! All you need to do is ask Jesus to come into your heart, then you've got the greatest, most powerful spiritual Force of ALL with you. He is your FRIEND, He LOVES you and wants to HELP you and fill your soul with His Light!

    "I am the DOOR, by Me, if any man enter in, he shall be SAVED."  John 10:9 .

    61. He is not a closed or locked door that you must try to force open or work hard to enter. He's an OPEN door! All you have to do is walk through Him and thereby freely enter God's Heavenly Kingdom of Love and Light! If you come to Jesus, He will give you His FREE GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE, and you will KNOW that you belong to Him and are going to Heaven! There are MILLIONS of people alive today who can testify with certainty that this claim of His is TRUE!


    62. Deep in their hearts, most people know that something is missing in their lives. Outwardly they may seem to have everything money, position, friends etc., all the things that are SUPPOSED to make them happy yet they still have an emptiness, a hunger that nothing really satisfies.
    63. Jesus said that He is the Bread of Life Who would completely FULFIL our heart's "hunger and thirst." You can find out if this claim is true by simply asking Him to come into your life. See how quickly His Love can SATISFY your hungry heart! The loneliness, emptiness and dissatisfaction you may have experienced will be replaced with lasting happiness, peace and joy such as you have never known before!

    "I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. No man comes unto the Father except by ME." John 14:6 .

    64. This is an extraordinary claim, and is in fact the heart and soul of the writings of the New Testament. That Jesus alone is the way to Eternal Life, Salvation and union with God.


    65. Quite the contrary, Jesus and His life and teachings are absolutely UNIVERSAL, open to ALL men, and are anything BUT "narrow-minded" or "bigoted"! In fact, it was Jesus' proclamation that "WHOEVER believes in Me shall not perish!," that so infuriated the closed-minded and racially-prejudiced religious leaders and rabbis of His Own Jewish religion! Jesus frequently helped and mingled with so-called "pagan" Gentiles, those whom His Own Jewish people had been taught by their leaders to DESPISE and look down upon.
    66. The religious leaders and teachers of Jesus' day were narrow-minded in every sense of the word. They were sour, intolerant and legalistic, and felt that they alone had an absolute monopoly on God and His Kingdom. It was the fact that Jesus told them to their faces that the Kingdom of God would be taken FROM them and opened up to OTHERS to nations from the EAST and from the WEST, to ALL people throughout the entire World that infuriated them so much that they determined to destroy Him. Matthew 8:11,12 ;  21:42,43 .
    67. God sent us His Son to show ALL men, ALL nations, ALL people, what He Himself is like, to freely bring us His Own great Love! "For God so LOVED the WORLD (you and me) that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus), so that WHOEVER believes in Him should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE."  John 3:16 .


    68. If Jesus IS God's Son, and God chose Jesus to reveal Himself to the World, then God Himself has insisted on it! These are GOD'S conditions, not ours: "Love ME, love My SON!" The Bible says, "All men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He who does not honour the Son, does not honour the Father Who SENT Him." John 5:23 .
    69. God is our great, kind and loving Heavenly Father, and He LOVES each of us very much. And He wants us all to experience and know the wonderful Love, joy and satisfaction that comes from personally knowing and being close friends with Him.
    70. But sad to say, all of us have done wrong at one time or another, and have been selfish, unloving or unkind to others. Or even to HIM, our Heavenly Father! He tells us in His Word, "ALL have missed the mark and have fallen short of the perfection of God. Romans 3:23 .
    71. God knows that no matter HOW hard we try to be good, none of us can ever be good enough to come into His perfect presence through our OWN self-goodness. But Jesus IS perfect. And because He was willing to come to Earth and suffer and die on the cross FOR us, to take the punishment that we deserve for our wrong-doings, we can be FORGIVEN for all our failings and be reunited with our great and loving Heavenly Father if we will simply accept Jesus' pardon and Gift of Eternal Life!
    72. It doesn't matter HOW bad we are, no matter WHAT we've done, if we will simply ask Jesus to forgive us and receive Him into our heart, we will be forgiven and SAVED. Which means we will not only know God's wonderful Love and peace HERE and NOW, but when we DIE, we will inherit a never-ending life of Love and happiness in HEAVEN forever!
    73. No mere mortal MAN, be he prophet or teacher, sage or guru, could possibly do what JESUS did! Only God Himself in the person of His Own Son could pay the price for our failings, and take the punishment that WE deserve. Only GOD could have done that in the person of His Son Jesus. THIS is why Jesus alone could rightfully proclaim Himself to be "the Way, the Truth and the Life."
    74. There is simply no other way to make peace with God. He will not accept any other terms, any other deal. In Jesus, the one thing that NEEDED to happen for Mankind HAPPENED in such a way that it never needs to happen again! It is for this reason that we can claim with certainty that for the greatest ailment of humanity there is only one specific remedy. JESUS!
    75. If many different groups of pathologists were all earnestly seeking to discover the cause and cure of cancer, and one group--through no brilliance of their own were to discover the secret, would it be "narrow-mindedness" or "bigotry" for them to share what they had found with all the other groups, and indeed with the entire World? Of course not! In fact, it would be the utmost folly, selfishness, lack of love and dishonesty were they to keep the secret to themselves! This is why we who have personally found Jesus, do all we can to share Him with others.


    76. Millions of INDIVIDUALS through the ages have come to personally know and love Jesus, and have been empowered by Him to lead wonderful lives of love and service to their fellow man. But sad to say, generally speaking, Christianity as an INSTITUTION has FAILED MISERABLY in fulfilling the mission that Jesus gave His original Apostles and followers: To share God's LOVE with a needy World!
    77. Most so-called "Christian" organisations and denominations have become so preoccupied with their internal squabbles, selfish accumulation of wealth, construction of elaborate and wasteful church buildings etc. that they have in effect forgotten and lost sight of Jesus' original command to "LOVE thy neighbour as thyself!"
    78. Our objective is not to persuade you to become a member of a religious organisation. JESUS is not a religion! In fact, Jesus Himself never actually started any denominations or hierarchical organisations! He simply went about doing good, helping people and sharing the Love of God with all whom He could. He never had a synagogue, mosque, church or temple of any kind, nor did He have a congregation whom He met with on a certain "holy day" of the week.
    79. He never put up a sign or advertised, "Come to My church on Holy day!" He only said, "Come unto ME!" Matthew 11:28 . He absolutely refused to compromise with the powerful and corrupt religious system of His day, but rather worked totally OUTSIDE of it, reaching and sharing His Love and Truth with the poor and common folk who had long ago abandoned and been abandoned by organised religion.
    80. Once, while speaking to a woman who was arguing with Him over whether God should be worshipped in a certain "holy" mountain in Samaria, or in the Jews' temple in Jerusalem, He answered her, "The day is coming, and NOW IS, when you shall neither worship God here upon this mountain not yet at Jerusalem. For they that worship God must worship Him in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. For the Father seeks such to worship Him!" John 4:21-23 . Jesus made it clear that forms and ceremonies, rituals and religious buildings were in no way necessary to worship God, but that we could simply love and worship Him in SPIRIT, in our HEARTS and in TRUTH, by following the light of His Word.


    81. We have touched on several features of Jesus' life that could perhaps assist or inspire your faith. As mentioned earlier, the historical facts regarding Jesus of Nazareth cannot be denied by anyone who seriously and open-mindedly examines the facts.
    82. The fulfillment of over 300 Old Testament prophecies given many centuries before He was born, describing in detail His birth, His life, His work, His death and His resurrection, also cannot be denied by any sincere seeker of truth.
    83. There is also no reason to doubt that after His death, something incredible happened which transformed His tiny band of dejected followers into a company of witnesses whom all the persecution of Imperial Rome could not stop. Downhearted and discouraged, their Lord cruelly crucified by His enemies, it looked to those disciples like their hopes had died and their dreams were shattered.
    84. But three days after Jesus' death, their faith was rekindled in such a dramatic manner that no force on Earth was ever able to quench it! And that lowly handful of His original followers went on to tell the entire WORLD the Good News! That God not only sent His Son into the World to teach us His Truth and show us His Love, but also that Jesus suffered death for OUR sake, and then ROSE from the GRAVE!--So that we who know and believe on Him never need to fear death again, for we are saved and on our way to HEAVEN, thanks to Jesus!
    85. The New Testament tells us that Jesus personally appeared to over 500 EYEWITNESSES after His resurrection. 1Corinthians 15:6 . This was the resounding message that His first disciples boldly proclaimed throughout the World, "God RAISED Him from the dead!" Acts 13:30 .
    86. A mere MENTAL, intellectual acceptance of these facts is not enough. For you to be absolutely CERTAIN that Jesus is Who He claimed to be, the Son of God, you simply need to personally TRY Him! Ask Him to come into your heart, forgive you for all the wrong you've done, and fill your life with His Love, peace and joy. And He WILL! He says in His Word, "Behold, I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock. If you hear My voice and open the door I WILL come into you." Revelation 3:20 . You don't have to try to figure Him out, just let Him IN!
    87. If you want His Love, light, life, joy, eternal happiness and Salvation, all you have to do is personally receive Him into your heart.--You can do it this very moment! He's made Salvation the EASIEST thing in the World, it requires absolutely no effort on your part whatsoever, no work, nothing, you simply have to RECEIVE it. And even if you don't understand it all, the Bible says that God's Love is "Love which PASSES your own understanding."  Ephesians 3:19 . You don't have to UNDERSTAND God in order to RECEIVE His Love!
    88. Will YOU receive Him?--If so, He will be the most precious One in your life!--Your closest Friend and Companion Who will be with you ALWAYS! Receive Him now by simply praying this little prayer:

    89. "Dear Jesus, I know that I need help and that I can't save myself. I have heard that You are the Son of God, and that through You I can personally find and know the God of Love. Jesus, I need Your Love to cleanse me from all fear and hate. I need Your Light to drive away all darkness. And I need Your Peace to fill and satisfy my heart. So I now open the door of my heart, and I ask You, Jesus, to please come in and give me Your free gift of Eternal Life! Thank You, Jesus, for suffering for all of the wrong I have done and for forgiving me and hearing my prayer! In Jesus' name, amen."

    90. If you would like to know MORE about Jesus and God's Plan and Will for you, please ask the one who gave you this booklet for a copy of the next booklet in this series, "THE WORD!"--A fascinating and enlightening explanation of what the Bible is, why it is the most unique book in the World, how God wrote it, how to understand its mysteries, etc.! We love you!


    91. The Bible not only contains hundreds of predictions about Jesus' FIRST coming, but it contains even MORE prophecies regarding His SECOND COMING, when He will return to Earth, not as a meek and mild baby in a manger, but as the Mighty KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS that He is!--Who will take over this World by force and put an END to Man's cruel and chaotic reign! He promised, "I will come AGAIN!--In the clouds of Heaven with POWER and great MAJESTY!"-- John 14:3 ;  Luke 21:27 .
    92. Jesus gave us many "Signs of the Times," SIGNS that we should be aware of, so that we will know when He is about to return. He predicted that just before His Coming, there will be a dramatic increase in "FAMINES, PESTILENCES and EARTHQUAKES in various places," and that the "GOSPEL would be preached in ALL the World for a witness to ALL nations."-- Matthew 24:7,14 .--Just as it is TODAY! He also said there would be a drastic increase in INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL, with "MANY running TO AND FRO, wandering from SEA TO SEA, as KNOWLEDGE is greatly INCREASED!"-- Amos 8:11,12 ;  Daniel 12:4 .
    93. He also said that there would be "a GREAT FALLING AWAY from the Lord as evil men and seducers grow WORSE AND WORSE, deceiving MANY, with the love of many growing cold," resulting in "DISTRESS of nations upon the Earth and MEN'S HEARTS FAILING them for FEAR!"  2Thessalonians 2:3 ;  2Timothy 3:13 ;  Matthew 24:12 ;  Luke 21:25,26 . Signs which are ALL obviously being FULFILLED TODAY more than ever before!
    94. Are YOU READY for the "End of the World" as we now know it, and for Jesus' soon return to establish His Kingdom of Love upon Earth?--If NOT, receive Him into your heart TODAY! TOMORROW may be TOO LATE!

(Edited by S.N.Strutt 16/09/17 from original writings by D.B.Berg 1975)


‘Proof of Heaven’ documents existence of afterlife, multiverse, intelligent life beyond Earth, multidimensional realities.

So, I got a little busier over Christmas and the New Year. A few words to the wise:-

(More excerpts from my good friend Dave in Iceland:  justnews4m1)

It was to be expected I guess. I’ve even popped in on Facebook a few times? I don’t know if I am going to continue with this rate of reproduction however. I still feel the need to pull back a bit and concentrate more on my own needs, spiritual that is. I would highly recommend that we all do this, because this coming year is not going to get any easier or better for most, and the only way through and out is as I explained here: and here:

I also continue to recommend that we all seek alternative information sources in order to understand what is going on in the world, avoiding the usual BS from the presstitutes of the mass media, the lies of the politicians, and the skullduggery of the banksters."

Also, personally I tend to start losing interest in anyone who uses the words “I think” too much, as well as those who seem to think it’s okay to interrupt or shout down someone else, regardless of who they are or what they are saying. (These types seem to be more interested in having us listen to THEM, rather than trying to arrive at a consensus. Perhaps they are trying to be some kind of “leader” themselves?) “The Truth Will Out” and arguing only proves that “two people (or more) were present”, nothing else. It never convinces anyone of anything other than to push them into becoming more entrenched in their stand."

We don’t always have to agree, but it is always wiser to listen. We can take whatever we believe is true from whoever or whatever and add it to our own understanding, strengthening us in our knowledge, enabling in us an ability to make better informed decisions.


It never has to get “personal”. Anyone who tends to get aggressive with others about issues is usually insecure in their own position, or lacking in facts to substantiate their view, or usually both. (I speak from experience sad to say). By the way, there is an incredible wealth of wisdom to be found in The Book of Proverbs in The Bible, especially on interactions between people.

There is plenty of truth available, if you are prepared and able to do some digging. It requires some discernment to find it amongst the fake and phoney of course, but I can share a little tip on this that always works for me…

If you have a source that IS “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” you can judge EVERYTHING that comes your way by that “touchstone” – a method by which they used to determine the validity or quality of gold.

Some may be quite shocked and surprised by just how much I believe, in so many areas and on so many subjects, though if you have been reading anything here you should get an idea (it is by no means the whole enchilada). I DO have a little advantage however, and it’s something anyone can avail themselves of, if they will…

First, IF you know “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” (John 14:6), THEN there is a promise that follows on after this…

Also from John 14…

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

And from chapter 16…

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

THIS is the ultimate source of wisdom and provides us with the ability to discern between that which is true and that which is false. If we don’t know, we just have to ask. It’s as simple as that! This is actually necessary, for two reasons…

The Bible should be viewed as Basic Information Before Leaving Earth, but it is SO DEEP that there are “strange truths” that will be revealed to those who do NOT adopt a rigid, dogmatic, legalistic approach to it’s application, but who let Love (The Comforter) lead. (And Love is the OPPOSITE of fear!)

And secondly…

“Religion” is born out of man’s pathetic attempts to limit God to his OWN “understanding” (clearly he has already MISSED that boat, in his presumption!), and thus judging God by his OWN “standards” becomes dogmatic, which then causes him to think he has a right to judge his fellow man. This is what is called self-righteousness, the one thing God actually hates, because it is our pride, separating us from Him and each other, the OPPOSITE of what He is – LOVE. If someone is “righter” then he is “superior”, right? Not exactly “humility born out love” it is? As The Good Book tells us “ONLY by PRIDE comes contention”! So, anyone fighting and arguing over “who is right, who is wrong, or more right or wrong” than any other has already lost the argument!

There is only ONE “right”, and IT’S NOT US!

As someone I love dearly taught a long time ago, “everything must be judged from the standpoint of love”. Anything else will ultimately fail, or fall short is some way at least, even if it’s “good”. (I think we could all use some help in this area, eh? – We can get it though, from the Source of all Love Himself!)

Anyway… I think this will be all for now.

Love always, David.

Other recent posts from today…


Happy New Year!…written by my long-term friend David in Iceland




Happy New Year!

This sentiment is expressed in hope, but it can only be realized on an individual basis in reality. In this day’s world there is not much hope I’m afraid, not for the majority. The elites have that already planned to end, and the many millions, billions, of “ordinary people” all over the world are not expected to last much longer, one way or another.

Sorry to sound so gloomy and doomy, but this IS their plan, and they have been working on it, incrementally, for a very long time, bringing it all to a soon climactic conclusion.

Before I get to “the way out” I would just like to explain why it is so easy for the string-pullers to be able to keep pulling the strings, dangling us all on the ends. Part of the reason is the communal hope that they count on the populations to cling to, all their social structures – until those structures no longer serve their purpose, then all apparent hope will be removed, done away with, destroyed.

The reason why human nature is such that it wants to cling to this hope is because it believes it can be realized by some magic person or persons being able to pull off what the rest of us have all failed at ourselves all along (mostly because we are either too lazy, or are unwilling to take the responsibility), however this is a fallacy in itself, because there are no magic persons. Any that look like they are materializing successfully will not be allowed to continue, one way or another, and if not disposed of completely, their number will be kept minimal, again, one way or another, “proving how fruitless” their endeavors are, resulting in the efforts running out of steam and their followers becoming disillusioned.

Result? “Nothing really changes”, even though circumstances unrelentingly continue to worsen! As I said, this is planned.

If you rely on “information” to set you free you have to dedicate yourself to it, continually, regardless of whatever your source is, and let’s hope you are at least able to find a credible one, preferably several. Then you have to act on what you know, because “knowing” is not enough.

But the problem is? Very few people have an attention span that remembers even what has happened in recent history, what got us to where we are now, let alone over centuries and millennia, and certainly not in the proper context. Most people these days are only living for now, a quick-fix of material satisfaction. You have to be willing to have all your sacred “shibboleths” destroyed, because also most of what we say we “believe” is not even true, we are just parroting! This is no exaggeration I’m afraid.

So, how do you have a “Happy New Year”, even in spite of everything?

First, you have to know that this life (as you THINK you know it) is NOT “the be all and end all” of everything, FAR from it! It is but a vapor, a “drop in the ocean”, a MOMENT in “time” (which is but a temporary construct).

Second, IF this statement is the truth (which it is), THEN there must be something more, another meaning to life (which there is). If so, what is it?

We are SOULS, NOT just a random product of some chaotic evolutionary accident, born out of some primordial soup that started as a rock! (It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out folks! I mean, if there were any such things as “missing links” we would be swimming in them today, yet not one can be produced, anywhere! Er, DUH!) Anyway…

We are souls, primarily spiritual entities which are eternal, and THIS is where we must invest not only our present, but our future, IF we want to enjoy it as much as we are supposed to (the ORIGINAL plan for us all).

Everyone is free to believe whatever they want to (the majesty of choice that we are all given), and reap the results of such, good and/or bad, but I can tell you that the following has proven true in my life, continually since I first discovered these facts at age 17…

The Book of Proverbs (full of wisdom) in The Bible, from chapter 3…

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

From the Book of Psalms, chapter 118…

8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

Of course, we can only place our trust in something that we know is true, and we usually know when something is true when we have “tried and proven” it to be so, right? So…… TRY IT! SEE “if these things be so”.

I can testify that they are.

The path through this life is becoming more and more difficult and dangerous as each day passes, and it is not going to get better, only worse, but there IS a way through, a “way out”, for each and every one of us, personally!

It is a spiritual path, and when you consider that it is THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS or means anything then… why not take it? The rest is failing, and will ultimately cease at some point, sooner for some than for others, but we all pass on from this life here, no exceptions! It is just a matter of when, and how!

Wouldn’t it be more fulfilling and satisfying to know that your life counted for something, not just here and now, but later, “there” and “then”?

Doubtless you will have heard the following statements (from the same source as those quoted above), and I will state that these are as true as those already mentioned. They ARE “the answer”, the “way out”, the “door” through which anyone may freely pass if they choose to, and these are not dependent on time or space! Remember, we are SOULS, SPIRITUAL individuals, and we are each loved as if we were the only one (and we ARE)! So here we go…

John chapter 14…

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John chapter 10…

9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

John chapter 3…

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

And all because…

John chapter 14

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

To conclude…

To have a truly “Happy New Year”, regardless of whatever happens in the world, we can each HAVE, personally, individually, “through it all” the PEACE that all the statements made above promise us! What could be better than this?

And folks… “there’s plenty more where that came from”, I kid you not! THESE are just the beginning!


CHRISTMAS "The Story of LOVE" 


CHRISTMAS "The Story of LOVE" 

He came to earth as a tiny, weak and helpless baby, born to a simple, humble young girl who miraculously conceived the child, having never slept with any man! In fact, the news of her pregnancy was so shocking that when the man to whom she was engaged to be married learned about it, he promptly decided to break the engagement and call off the wedding.--Until a powerful celestial being intervened and instructed him to stay with her and protect and care for this very special child that she was carrying.

Although ordained and predestined to be a king, in fact the King of kings, He was not born in a palace with famous and glorious members of the court in attendance and the honor and praise of man's system. Instead, He was born on the dirty floor of a barn amidst the cattle and the donkeys, wrapped in rags and laid to rest in the animals' feed-trough.

And though His birth brought no great fanfare or recognition from the institutions and governments of men, that night on a nearby hillside, a humble band of poor shepherds were awestruck as a brilliant, almost blinding light burst upon them from the starry sky and a host of heavenly messengers filled the night with their joyful declaration and song: "Glory to God in the highest! Peace on Earth to men of good will! For unto you this day is born a Savior, Christ the Lord!"

Far away in the East, another herald appeared in the heavens, a bright star that caught the attention of certain wise men. They interpreted its meaning and followed it, crossing thousands of miles of desert, as it led them to the exact location of the young child in that little town of Bethlehem, where they honored Him with their precious gifts.

His earthly father was a carpenter, a humble hewer of wood with whom He lived and labored. He conformed to our human ways of life, custom, language and living that He might understand and love us better and communicate with us on the lowly level of our own limited human understanding!--He learned to love mankind. He saw their suffering and had great compassion on them, longing to not only heal their sick and broken bodies, but also to save their immortal spirits.

When the time came and He began His life's work, He went about everywhere doing good.--Helping people, loving children, healing heartaches, strengthening tired bodies, saving all who believed in Him. He not only preached His message, but He lived it amongst us. He not only ministered to their spiritual needs, but He also spent a great deal of time ministering to their physical and material needs, miraculously healing them when they were sick, feeding them when they were hungry, and sharing His life and His love.

His religion was so simple that He said you must become as a little child to receive it. He didn't preach temple worship; He didn't preach going to synagogue or going to church; He didn't preach any complicated ceremonies or difficult rules.--All He did was preach love and show love, as He strove to lead God's children into the true Kingdom of God, whose only laws are to "love the Lord with all thy heart" and "love thy neighbor as thyself."

He had very little to do with the pompous, rich-robed, churchy scribes, Pharisees and hypocrites--the religious leaders of that day--except when they insisted on annoying Him with their critical questions. Then He would let them have it, publicly exposing them as the "blind leaders of the blind" that they were, even telling them that they were like white-washed sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful, clean and holy on the outside, but within are full of rottenness, corruption and stinking dead men's bones!

He was not a mere religious reformer, He was a revolutionary! He refused to compromise with the false religious system, but rather worked totally outside of it, sharing His love with the poor and common folk who had long ago abandoned and been abandoned by organized religion. He never went into any bar with whip in hand, breaking up the bottles and throwing out the bartender. Nor did He ever enter any brothel, beating up the poor girls, overturning their beds and throwing the men out the window.--But He did make a whip, go into their big beautiful religious temple, overturn the tables, spill out the money and drive the money-mad moneychangers out of the sanctuary, condemning them for turning what was supposed to be a house of prayer into a den of thieves!

He made Himself of no reputation, and was a companion of drunks, prostitutes and sinners, the outcasts and downtrodden of society. He even told them that they would enter the Kingdom of Heaven before the so-called "good" people, the self-righteous and religious leaders who rejected Him and His simple message of love. The power of His love and of His appeal was so great and gave such great faith to the sincere truth-seekers that they didn't hesitate to drop everything they had and immediately forsake all to become His full-time followers!

Once, while crossing a lake in a small boat with His disciples, when a great storm arose and the boat was in danger of sinking, He commanded the winds and the waves to cease--and immediately there was a great calm! His disciples, astonished by such a demonstration of miraculous power, exclaimed to one another, "What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him!"

Throughout His ministry He gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, cleansed lepers and raised the dead! In fact, so marvelous were His works that they prompted a leading member of the religious establishment that most bitterly opposed and resented Him to exclaim, "We know that You are come from God.--For no man could do these miracles that You do unless God were with Him!"

As His message of love spread and His followers multiplied, the established religion and its jealous leaders realized what a threat He had become to them. His simple doctrine of love was liberating the people from the control of the hypocritical high priests, the big-shot religionists, and was therefore destroying their entire religious system, their religious authority, their power and control and hold on people.

These powerful religious enemies finally had Him arrested and brought to trial on false charges of sedition and subversion. Although the Roman governor found Him innocent, he was pressured and persuaded by these religionists to execute Him. Just prior to His arrest, He had said, "They couldn't even touch Me without My Father's permission. If I would but raise My little finger, He would send legions of angels to rescue Me!"--But instead, He chose to die, to save you and me. Nobody took His life from Him, He laid it down, He gave His life of His own free will and accord.

But even His death did not satisfy His jealous enemies. To ensure that His followers couldn't steal His body and claim He had come back to life, they placed a huge stone over the door of His tomb and posted a detachment of Roman soldiers there to guard it.--A scheme that proved futile, as these same guards became eyewitnesses to the greatest miracle of all.--Three days after His lifeless body was laid to rest in that cold tomb, He rose from the dead, the Victor over death and Hell forever!

Death itself could not stop His work nor His words! He rose to lead His tiny band of followers to overcome the Roman Empire with love and the power of the Gospel! And the love of God simply rolled right on over His jealous enemies like a giant tidal wave to cover the whole earth!--And they were left far behind--as dead and dry as He said they would be!

Since that miraculous day nearly 2,000 years ago, this same man, Jesus Christ, has done more to change history and the course of civilization and the condition of man than any other leader, group, government or empire before Him or since! He has saved billions from the fear and uncertainty of a hopeless tomb, and has given eternal life and the love of God to all who call upon His name.

This man, Jesus Christ, is not merely a philosopher or teacher or rabbi or guru, or even a prophet.--He is the Son of God! God, the great Creator, is a Spirit and is all-powerful, all-knowing, everywhere and in everything--far beyond our limited human comprehension! So He sent Jesus, in the form of a man, to show us what He Himself is like and to bring us to Himself. And although many great teachers have spoken and taught about love and about God, He is love and He is God!--The only one who died for the sins of the world and rose from the dead! So He's in a class all by Himself, because He's the only Savior. He said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life!--No man comes to the Father but by Me!"

How can you find out and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus Christ really is the Son of God, the way to salvation?--The answer is simple: Try Him! Simply humble yourself and sincerely ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Ask Him to come into your heart, forgive you for all your sins and fill your life with His love, peace and joy.

He's real and He loves you.--So much so that He died in your place and suffered for your sins, so that you would not have to, if you'll just receive Him and His free gift of eternal life. But He can't save you unless you want Him to. His love is all-powerful, but He won't force His way into your life. He gently knocks at the door of your heart.--He doesn't kick it in or break it down. He stands there meekly, in loving patience, waiting for you to open up and ask Him in.

Will you receive Him?--If so, He will be the most precious one in your life!--Your closest friend and companion who will be with you always!--For He alone is the lover of all lovers, who came for love and lived in love and died for love that we might live and love forever!

You can personally receive Jesus into your own heart right now by sincerely praying this simple prayer:

"Dear Jesus, please forgive me for all my sins. I believe You died for me. I believe You are the Son of God, and I now ask You to come into my life. I open the door and I invite You into my heart. Please come in, Jesus, and help me to confess You before others that they may find You too. In Your name I ask, amen."

Classic movie a tradition at Christmas for many Americans

Published: December 24, 2015




“It’s a Wonderful Life,” the Frank Capra/Jimmy Stewart Christmas story made in the aftermath of World War II that tells the story of an angel who hadn’t earned his wings and a small-town community leader who, it turns out, put his family and friends ahead of himself, probably has caused more than a few tears to be shed over the years.

And that includes the one person who was there in the make-believe world created in Hollywood for the work, the toil, the strain of putting the story together.

Jimmy Stewart.

His re-telling of the making of the Christmas classic came originally in Guideposts magazine, and was re-told this Christmas by James Dobson, of Family Talk radio, in his December 2015 newsletter to constituents.

Dobson reproduces a commentary from Stewart, who passed away about 20 years ago, about the making of “Wonderful Life.”

Stewart explained that the production set included 75 buildings on four acres, and for 1946, some startling developments that included production of something that looked like real snow, not just white corn flakes.

He said it was the story, which also featured Lionel Barrymore, Donna Reed, Henry Travers and more, itself that has kept the movie alive after all these decades – because it didn’t attract much attention when it first was released.

“Good as the script was,” Stewart wrote in the day, “There was still something else about the movie that made it different. It’s hard to explain. I, for one, had things happen to me during the filming that never happened in any other picture I’ve made.”

“In one scene, for example, George Bailey is faced with unjust criminal charges, and, not knowing where to turn, ends up in a little roadside restaurant. He is unaware that most of the people in town are arduously praying for him. In this scene, at the lowest point in George Bailey’s life, Frank Capra was shooting a long shot of me slumped in despair. In agony I raised my eyes and, following the script, and pled, ‘God … God … Dear Father in heaven, I’m not a praying man, but if You’re up there and You can hear me, show me the way. I’m at the end of my rope. Show me the way, God …’”

Stewart continued, “As I said those words, I felt the loneliness, the hopelessness of people who had nowhere to turn, and my eyes filled with tears. I broke down sobbing. This was not planned at all, but the power of that prayer, the realization that our Father in heaven is there to help the hopeless, had reduced me to tears.”

Not one to miss a moment, Capra, who “loved the spontaneity,” wanted a close-up, Stewart explained.

But he also “was sensitive enough to know that my breaking down was real and that repeating it in another take was unlikely.”

He got the close-up anyway, Stewart said, spending “long hours in the film laboratory, again and again enlarging the frames of that scene so that eventually it would appear as a close-up on screen. I believe nothing like this had ever been done before. It involved thousands of individual enlargements with extra time and money. But he felt it was worth it.”

Stewart called the film, released Dec. 25, 1946, “nothing phenomenal” … it was just “about an ordinary man who discovers that living each ordinary day honorably, with faith in God and a selfless concern for others, can make for a truly wonderful life.”

Dobson cited Stewart as “a man of deep Christian faith whose beliefs stood in sharp contrast to those of many of his contemporaries.”

“He put his burgeoning film career on hold to fight for his country … [he] commented that one of his greatest sources of encouragement in battle was a tattered copy of the 91st Psalm that had been given to him by his father,” he also was married to the same woman, Gloria, for more than 45 years and he “faithfully attended church until the day he died
