JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR
Pacecco de Rosa - Jesus Blesses the Children (Mark 10:13-16), Naples, Italy ~1630.
This took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said,
"Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"
Gospel of John 1:28-29
"This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.
No one has greater love than this, to lay down his life for his friends."
Gospel of John 15:12-13
The Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, entered time and history through the Incarnation. "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14). Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Mark 1:1, Romans 1:4), is a gift of love from the Father for the salvation of the world (John 3:16-17), the one who died for all of mankind (2 Corinthians 5:15), our "Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ" (Philippians 3:21).
Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, fulfills Old Testament prophecy. The Lamb of God recalls the Passover Lamb, whose blood was sprinkled on the houses of the Israelites to protect them during the Exodus from Egypt (Exodus 12). The Messiah as the suffering servant will give his life as an offering for sin (Isaiah 53). The Lamb anticipates the victorious Lamb of the Apocalypse (Revelation 5-7).
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus of Nazareth gave us the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10), affirmed the Ten Commandments of God (Matthew 5:17-20), and taught us the prayer of hope, the Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13). Jesus promised the Apostles and his followers that "When I go I will prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you will be also" (John 14:3).
God is love (I John 4:8)! The mystery of the Cross reveals the open arms of Christ Jesus. The Church Fathers interpreted his open arms of prayer to reveal his obedience and glorification of his Father and at the same time reveal his love for all of mankind. The figure of the Cross itself symbolizes union with both God and mankind through Jesus Christ: the vertical arm rises towards God in heaven and descends to the earth, and the horizontal arm embraces man both east and west.
The Paschal mystery in the Gospel of John reveals Christ as the new Adam. "One of the soldiers thrust a lance into his side and immediately blood and water came out" (John 19:34). Eve came from the side of the first Adam. The open side of the new Adam is the beginning of the new definitive community of men with one another, a New Covenant in Christ, symbolized by water and blood, the sacraments of Baptism and the Eucharist, and through them the Church as the sign of the new community of mankind.
Christ revealed to us the mystery of the Holy Trinity. Following his Resurrection, Jesus instructed his Apostles: "Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you," that He will be with us to the end (Matthew 28:19f).
Jesus actually identifies himself with the Church in the Acts of the Apostles. Saul was persecuting the Church, consenting to the death of the first martyr Stephen, and laid waste the Church, dragging off men and women and throwing them into prison (Acts 8:1-3). But while going to Damascus, Saul was struck from his horse by a great light, and a voice asked "Why do you persecute me?" Saul asked who spoke: "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting" (Acts 9:4-5). Saul experienced the grace of Conversion, and Paul, as Apostle to the World.

WAR AGAINST EVIL
When sovereignty belongs to ruthless tyrants, when neither the force of example nor words of instruction are heeded, those who would maintain a righteous stand may have to fight. The battle against evil is waged sometimes as a spiritual struggle and sometimes as a physical war. Which may be undertaken only as a last resort. War against evil, the sacrifice of one's own blood see Persecution and Martyrdom
is far more precious than shedding the blood of an enemy on the battlefield. Thus Christianity defeated the might of the Roman Empire by the blood of its martyrs. Regardless, the struggle against tyranny demands that we expose ourselves to suffering and torment. In this sense it is said to be superior to a sheltered life of seclusion and contemplation.
A righteous person does not go to war in search of glory or spoils. Neither does he fight from a spirit of vindictiveness, revenge, or to satisfy national honor. The only possible justification for such war is when believers are confronted with manifest tyranny like George Soros and his stupid committee of 300. Unfortunately, religious passions have often been exploited by those who would invoke the name of religion to promote wars for political or economic ends. Such misuse of religion makes the doctrine of Just War or Jihad quite hazardous. It is always better to find peaceful means to reconcile disputes, and the religions of the world have the resources for such reconciliation in almost all cases, if people would only use them.
The foundation for the struggle against tyranny begins with the victory of the individual soul and the resolution of to help others with no selfish motives. The individual struggles to reach the point of absolute faith where he or she has completely vanquished the body and its selfish desires and can purely and absolutely will what is good. A number of well-known passages on the interior life use martial imagery to describe this inner struggle with the lower self. We include a few of them here because of the similarity of theme. However, a spiritualized understanding of warfare threatens to omit the essential social dimension of struggle.
It is a duty to fight for justice in the world, all the while continuing also to fight the evil . The soldier for right arms himself with the virtues of self-control, humility, and willingness to suffer. Through faith, the soldier for God recognizes that God is fighting on his side and is his Help and Ultimate success . He can go forward with absolute firmness. Such warfare is a supreme act of self-sacrifice: to risk one's life for a noble cause that will result in self to others the real act of humanity.
The first passages in this section define the righteous fight against evil--whether it be a war with weapons or a peaceful struggle against the spiritual forces of the devil. We learn that death is of no account in the battle for right; the soldier should fight expecting to die and looking forward to his reward in the next life. The next group of passages qualify and caution against readiness to fight a physical war; if a good objective can be gained by peaceful means, that is preferred. Bloodshed in war is an evil to be avoided if possible, for all life is sacred. A third group of passages uses martial imagery to describe the interior warfare against evil spiritual forces and the power of sin within onself. The last group of passages give historical examples of battles between good and evil.
And if God had not repelled some men by others, the earth would have been corrupted. God does not lose but will bring heroes out of their struggles and make them go to the next level.
The rabid animal will not stop similar to the evil forces. I sad hit the centre of the board to stop evil . They are panicking which is expected because so many guilty of pedophilia and many worse evil acts. Move faster to arrest the centre of the board , time is of essence now.
The demon is like a rabid animal. Treat them as such or you will get bitten.
The media going crazy is a reflection of the crazy ellites knowing the noose is tighteming. Pedogate is going to chain them to hell. This is the subject making them run . They are done .
Message from God. You all will be arrested.
Set the lake on fire , it is a lake not a swamp. Do not touch my children for you will all burn. Planned parenthood is pure evil.
Mr Donald Trump you move like a turtle, why are you so slow . Chess and Judo requires action
Angel Krill I am aware of you. God Bless
For do not my people have eyes to see and ears to hear the two signs I gave, when they carried my servant’s body up the steps of the courthouse where to rest he was laid? Read the signs! Read the signs that were for all to see, and understand the words in this prophecy.” The Spirit of God says,
“5, that’s right, 5 Supreme Court Justices will be appointed by my new president, my anointed. I will choose 5 through my anointed to keep those alive. I will stack the court with those that I choose, to send a clear message to the enemy, that you lose! This is the miracle that I will perform, so that MY COURT will be reformed.” The Spirit of God says,
“The cries, the cries that I have heard from the womb, have reached my eyes and ears like a sonic boom! The five appoint and the reform that shall take place, the great I AM shall take on this case! For it is my will and my way for all those that have prayed, that MY COURT SHALL OVERTURN ROE VS WADE! The Spirit of God says,
“America, get ready, for I AM choosing from the top of the cream, for I AM putting together America’s dream team, from the president and his administration, to judges and congress to ease Americas frustrations!” The Spirit of God says, “Rise up my Army and get in the fight, for this is the generation that’s taking flight. This is the generation of warriors that those of old wanted to see, and the enemy will have no choice but to flee. Rise up! Stomp the enemies head with bliss; send the enemy back to Hell and into the abyss. This is the generation of warriors that all of Hell has feared to face and see, but I AM and all of Heaven is cheering you on with glee!” GOD
1-28-16 Defeated Enemy
The Spirit of God says, “There is an army arising from the dust and ashes from many battles and enemy clashes. This army that’s arising is coming in my glory and light, and the battle that’s about to unfold shall put the enemy to flight. For my army is about to hit the beaches and shores of every country and nation afar, and they shall drive back the army of darkness at the sound of my shofar! For my army will be young and old and will save over 1 billion souls.” The Spirit of God says,
“There is nothing that the enemy can do to stop this that I the Lord God have started, for it is now time for the army of darkness to be departed. For the souls of this nation and all over the world are crying out to me. My Army! Bring them in, and I will save, deliver, and comfort thee. Arise! Army of God! Arise Your work is not complete, for the kingdom of darkness is in for its biggest surprise, complete and utter defeat! Arise! My Army! Get in the fight, I say with great emphasis! Over take, terminate, and destroy the Army of darkness with Extreme Prejudice!” GOD!
11-17 -15 Time is Up
The Spirit of God says, I am neutering this former President, I am neutering this former President in this hour and his committee of 300 idiots, so his evil and corrupt ideologies and theologies can no longer reproduce in this country I call MY UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! For this man who holds the title called the former President of the United States, will begin to lose his grip from it, and be stripped of it, for I the Lord God will rip it from him. This man who called himself Commander in Chief, for he is nothing more than a lying deceitful Thief.
Time is up! Says the Spirit of God for those who are corrupt, for I shall begin to remove those who stand for evil in leadership and stand in the way of my agenda. Judges, Senators, Congressmen and women of all kinds, even at the local, state, and federal lines. Even the Supreme Court is not immune from there corrupt and evil ways, for I will remove some and expose their backdoor deals that have been at play. For my America has been chosen as the launching platform for my harvest, and she will be a light unto the world once again as I clean up that which is the darkest. Fear not America your greatest days are ahead of you, arise my Army and fight and watch what I will do for you!
To — The Army of God,
Heavens Invading Expeditionary Forces Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Preachers and Teachers, Men and Women of the Army of God! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven since all of creation. The eyes of the world and all of heaven are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brothers and sisters in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the satanic war machine, the elimination of the demonic tyranny over the oppressed peoples of the earth, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.
BUT NOW IS THE TIME! Much has happened since the demonic triumphs of years past. The body of Christ have inflicted upon the demonic great defeats in the spiritual and natural realms. Our spiritual offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air, and there capacity to wage war on the ground. I have given you an overwhelming superiority in weapons for your warfare, and placed at your disposal great reserves of trained fighting men and woman from the body of Christ.
THE TIDE HAS TURNED! The free men and woman of my army are marching together to victory! I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle; we will accept nothing less than full victory! For this is a great and noble undertaking, AND VICTORY IS YOURS! GOD!
4-26-16 Purging the Temple
The Spirit of God says, “Those that are eating of it are not eating from my tree! For when I told Adam and Eve do not eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil for you shall surely see, so it is with those that eat from their lust for power. For this demonic force has now made you spiritually deaf, mute, and blind. Woe to those who continue to use this demonic system for you will be exposed and purged from this evilcistern.” The Spirit of God says,
“Can you not see that you are taking a bribe? They will say it’s all about the money, and for that you shall be kicked from my tribe! Taking a bite from that apple has taken you from a spiritual body to a brick and mortar, and has placed you under the New World Order. For how can you be a part of my spiritual body when you have cut off my head? For those that don’t turn will surely fall as dead. Tear up the contract, repent, divorce Baal, and re-marry me, and lwill remove the spiritual blindness so you can once again see. Come out of this! Come out of this before it’s too tate, for my judgments are on those systems that I hate. Come out now for I will no longer tolerate!”
6-12-16 Babylonian Prison
The Spirit of God says, ”There’s a beast in the east that’s trying to arise that thinks he’s the best, but I have one in the west that will give him a godly surprise and take him down to the least. For this beast that has risen is no surprise, for my church is in a Babylonian prison, come out of her or it will be your demise!” The Spirit of God says,
“The chaos and clatter that the earth is in, is directly related to the Babylonian box that the so called church is in. For my earth is moaning and groaning for my sons and daughters to arise with bliss. where is my Army that will send this beast back to the abyss? For how can you take on a beast when you’re deaf, mute, and blind? For all beasts are ancient and old, and lurk about seeking an enemy whom they can steam roll. For this beast has no teeth and lurks in the brush, trying to lure you into an ambush. Do not attack until you come out of her that Babylonian system, or you will fall prey and be decimated beyond comprehension.” The Spirit of God says,
“For when my people realize the curse they are under, and come out, break the curse, then they will plunder. For as they come out of her with a mass exodus, there I will be, to restore her back to my body and I as the head she will have power, authority, and unity again and the enemy shall fall as dead! For you wonder why the world is so perverse, it’s because my church has forsaken her first love and is under a curse. Come out of her now don’t walk but run and do not wait, before you cross the point of no return for then it’s too late. Come back to me, come back to me and make me your first love I have dearly yearned, for some it’s already too late, for they have not learned.”
“The successes of the Syrian army with the support of the Russian space air force in the rapid liberation of the Euphrates valley seem to contradict the plans of American colleagues,” Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashinkov said, noting that US forces did not allow the Syrian army to pursue terrorists in the al-Tanf area.
It is understood, of course, that Russia does not want to initiate a conflict with the United States and to start a third world war, but such declarations and statements by the Russian Ministry of Defence, even if they are uttered in such de-escalatory terms such as “American colleagues,” represent a clear and explicit link between ISIS and US plans in both Syria and Iraq. This at the international level undermines the credibility of the United States, and undermines the impact of any American statements bragging about the fight against terrorism. Especially as Russian forces announced that the ISIS offensive relied on aerial reconnaissance that cannot be attained by the group unless provided by American reconnaissance planes.
“We support the comprehensive approach to combating terrorism, preventing the spread of terrorist ideology and funding illegal armed groups, and we call for a political renunciation of double standards in addressing the most serious threats of our time,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin in a welcoming message to participants at the International Meeting of Heads of Security Services.
“Double standards” have become synonymous with the United States, and the rise of Russia in the international system today is putting the final nail in the coffin of American unilateralism. This is what Russia’s policy depends on in its cumulative strategy, building on the shortcomings of the other, pointing to them and re-mentioning them whenever possible. While at the same time behaving differently from them, adhering to principles, values and norms in international relations.
But the biggest victim of the US sponsoring of ISIS in recent years is Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. Therefore, in addition to what the Russians are doing to draw the attention of the world to the sure link between ISIS and the United States, it is necessary to re-read all the unfolding events in Arab countries in the past seven years in light of these facts, which revealed certain close ties between ISIS, the United States, and the objectives that the Americans and Israelis hope to achieve in our countries.
When we were watching dozens of American four-wheel-drive vehicles pass from Iraq to north-east Syria, we were wondering where ISIS got all these US-made cars from, while our countries could not buy medications to save children’s lives because of sanctions and boycotts. When ISIS pays the salaries of thousands of terrorists, one wonders how could it move all of this liquidity in US dollars, while countries cannot pay for the spare parts of their civil aircraft.
The relationship between the Western and Zionist forces targeting of the Arab confrontation countries, and the Muslim Brotherhood gangs and their detachments from al-Nusra, ISIS, the Free Army, and others’ aggression on our countries is an old-new relationship, but for unknown reasons it remains in doubt despite the books written on this subject, by members of the same organisations such as Izzat al-Kharbawi.
The thorough research and investigation into this subject is an urgent need today not only to prove the creation of these movements by the West as instruments to implement its agendas which it failed to implement by other means in our region, but also to liberate the Islamic religion from all these suspicious movements and all manifestations of extremism, and the violence that has afflicted on them. The proximate end of the fighting with an ISIS on the battlefield in Iraq and Syria can be an incentive and an opportunity for political elites and Arab intellectuals to work quietly today, and hope to re-study this phenomenon, its formation, its entry into our territory, the methods it followed, the tactics that it resorted to, and the networks that provided them with support, in order to reach firm conclusions that we can provide future generations with a factual and correct account of our history that they must depend on in forming their national outlook in the future.
What we Arabs lack from our history is a study of the events we go through in a frank and in-depth manner, in order to draw lessons for the future in a timely manner; this is why we find ourselves experiencing the same turmoil more than once, and the tragedy is repeated throughout our lives in different manifestations without us learning one useful lesson that guides us in any similar experience we may encounter after a while.
Thousands of martyrs have sacrificed their lives to reach this honourable stage in this battle, and thousands have been wounded so that the will of the free peoples triumphs. Is this victory a mere news clip in the media, or should we actually make a plan in order for researchers to study all the dimensions of these events and arrive at solid scientific conclusions that we can provide not only for our peoples, but to the international family so that those who promulgate lies in order to destroy countries and peoples become more reluctant in doing so.
After these achievements in the field, we must spread research centres at the national level to honour all the sacrifices made and establish the foundations of a true and factual Arab history fit for the new world, which is rapidly taking shape, and guarantees us an honourable status at the regional and international levels.
