Jesus's birth rights and destiny

In Christian theology it’s the scenes of Jesus’ death and resurrection that carry important meaning; the death is commemorated by the communion service and the resurrection is a daily reminder that we must walk in newness of life. The birth of Christ is not made central in the theology of Paul, Peter, and especially John. And yet we keep on keeping Christmas because of the custom.

This custom can be traced to the pagan Roman holiday named Saturnalia, and from sun worship, since Christmas comes just after the winter solstice, when the sun is being “born again.” The days get shorter and shorter as December progresses, until they are shortest about Decemember 21. By observation with the eye, which is all the ancients had before telescopes, the sun could noticeably be seen being longer in the sky by about December 25. Thus any worries about the sun not showing its face in its December decreases were shattered when its increases were observed about December 25. The sun is “born again!” An ancient sun-worshipping custom was started.
Jesus was not born on December 25. He was born at a time when shepherds would be out with their flocks at night, which is not in December, even in Palestine. Christian oral tradition says that Jesus was born on September 29. In the calendar of the church of England September 29 is listed as the feast of St. Michael. A close study of the name “Michael” in the Old and New Testaments reveals that “Michael” is Christ. For instance, “Michael” is mentioned at Revelation 12:7 as head of the angels who cast out Lucifer from heaven. Only Christ would have the ultimate authority to do that. In Jude 9 we are told that Michael the archangel disputed with Satan about the body of Moses. Only Christ could rightfully engage Satan in such a debate. Further, the title “archangel” means the “head of the angels.” That is Christ. Thus the feast of St. Michael, on September 29, is really a commemoration of Christ’s birth into this world, His incarnation as Jesus from Nazareth.
“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” This famous sentence, beginning John’s gospel, is a clear revelation that Christ was with God the Father from eternity, and was God Himself, reigning with the Father. Thus the word “incarnation”, from the same root as “carnal”, meaning “flesh”, is used to refer to the most astounding of historical events; God Himself taking human flesh in the womb of Mary! The Creator and Sustainer of the Universe laying in donkey’s feed box, a helpless babe!

“When the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a women…”(Gal. 4:4)
bullet

“The days were completed for her to give birth.”(Luke 2:6)

These two scriptures seem to indicate that the time of Jesus’ birth was fully planned in the foreknowledge of God. Why September 29?
In 4 B.C., the year Jesus was born, the 10th of Tishri fell on September 29 of our present calendar. That day was Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. Jesus was born on Yom Kippur! God so loved the world that He gave it an offering for all its sins. The Day of Atonement was, and is, the most solemn Jewish feast day. The people were to fast and afflict their souls before God, in anticipation of the High Priest’s exit from the temple’s Most Holy Place. When he finally came forth it was evidence that their sins had been purged away, and all was made right with God.
God instituted this special feast at Mount Sinai for the purpose of getting the worshippers looking by faith to that day when the Messiah would come and put away all sin. But the Jews had let selfishness and pride all but obliterate the Divine purpose in their religious calendar. So while many worshippers massed upon the temple site (like the Muslims of our day to Mecca), blindly obeying a religious habit, waiting for the High Priest to come forth, it was a few humble shepherds only who saw the true High Priest after he had come forth from the most holy place of Mary’s womb!
One of the Levitical stipulations for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, was that the high priest would remove his beautiful, glorious garments, and put on the white linen garb of the common priests. (Lev. 16:4, 23) The symbolism is plain: the Son of God would lay aside His royal robes, and leave the adoration of all the angels in the bliss of Heaven, and clothe Himself with humanity and share in the dismal lot of humankind. “And the Word was made flesh and tabernacled among us…” (John 1:14) Christ’s birth in Bethlehem was thus the beginning of the true Yom Kippur, God’s initial “making good” on His promise to redeem the race. The headlines in Heaven certainly read: “Son of God takes human flesh! First beachhead established in Operation Redemption.”
There were many distant visitors sojourning at this time in the vicinity of Jerusalem for the Tishri feasts, especially the upcoming Feast of Tabernacles. The Roman government probably planned the census enrollment during these feasts to ease their administration. Bethlehem was seething with people returned for the enrollment. All the rooms in the famous city and its environs were booked up. And who is making room for Him who is Lord of Lords and King of Kings? Where is the eager anticipation among the people of God for Him who was to fulfill all that was written in Moses and the Prophets? Where is the earnest seeking of the long-promised Messiah?
“And she wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a feeding box, because there was no room for Him in the inn.” (Luke 2:7)
Oh sublime paradox and lofty contradiction! Food indeed for the deepest meditation!
When the wise men had come through Jerusalem and inquired of the Jewish theologians, they were quick to inform the Oriental astrologers that the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem:
4 And when he (Herod) had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5 And they said unto him, “In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6 ‘And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.'” (Matthew 2:4-6)
But there is no record that these Bible-smart theologians asked the magi if they could travel with them to see their Messiah. There is no record that they gladly sent messengers to Bethlehem to tell the common people: “Get excited! The prophecy of Micah about the Messiah being born in your town is likely to soon be fulfilled! Congratulations! Keep your eyes open.” No. Too often pride rules in the heart of men, even in (especially in?) men with lofty religious profession.
Since we know Jesus was not born on December 25, what reason is there to continue the custom of gift-giving? Must we admit that we are simply going the way of Rome, engaged in Saturnalia, or can we find yet a godly rationale for this holiday we love? In His unique way, the God of Heaven has turned this pagan feast day into a day to glorify Himself! For if we count 280 days, the length of human gestation, back from September 29, it comes to December 25! Mary was inseminated by the Holy Spirit on this day! What a gift that was, causing her forever to be blessed of women!
It is customary in the Orient to consider one’s birthdate the date of conception. Following this Oriental custom, Jesus WAS born on December 25!
The genealogy of Christ has some very interesting turns. And if we can spend time charting the likes of the genealogy of the house of Windsor, certainly we can spend a moment contemplating the Savior’s. Rahab, mentioned at Matthew 1:5, in the lineage between Abraham and David, was a harlot. Ruth, also mentioned there, was a pagan. How could it be that Christ “avoided” all this “bad blood?” How is it that Christ was born sinless, the thoroughbred and pedigree of Heaven, uncontaminated by all the sin and guilt stemming from Adam’s fall, while the ancestors of His blood line were obviously fallen human beings carrying the “original sin” characterizing all humans since Adam’s fall? (See Romans 5:15-19) 

I have one suggestion to offer, which would provide a means to allow all the biblical evidence to stand, would allow Jesus to be born “perfect” and would still allow Him to be the seed of Mary (not, of course, of Joseph). Some conditions in humans are sex-linked, such as the bleeding disease, hemophilia. The gene for hemophilia is located on the X chromosome, the female sex chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes; males have one X and one Y chromosome, the latter containing little genetic information. Males who inherit a hemophilia gene on their X chromosome suffer the disease. Because the gene is recessive, females with a gene for hemophilia on one X chromosome and a normal gene on the other can transmit the disease to their male offspring but are themselves protected from its effects. It is interesting, considering our subject, that one form of hemophilia is called “Christmas disease.” Since sex-linking occurs in some diseases, why not the “disease” of “original sin?”
Everyone who has a father would have the disease of original sin, because it is passed through men (the same as hemophilia is passed through women); and every human being has had a human father except for Adam and Jesus. (Eve would be in a special situation also…) Jesus is called the second Adam. Thus Jesus is sent to redeem the human race where it had fallen: in Adam. Jesus is placed in a similar condition to the first Adam. He has a Divine Father. If “original sin” is transmitted through men, then Jesus avoids this condition because Joseph was not His biological father. The above is just a suggestion. It doesn’t fall into the problems of the other formulations, and it has the advantage of not only squaring with the Bible, but also with the phenomena of nature, presumably caused by God, of certain-sex transfer of various conditions. But since it is only a suggestion, I rest my case on faith.
I believe that Jesus is the seed of Mary, the seed of David, the seed of Abraham. I believe He is free of the taint of sin-nature plaguing the rest of the human race. I believe He is fully God and fully man. I believe that He is aware of the temptations we experience as humans because He was human. In fact He is still NOW human since at 1 Timothy 2:5 He is called a “man!”
Jesus fulfilled several prophecies in a unique way. First He had to be in the kingly line of David, for the Messiah must have right to David’s throne. Joseph, Mary’s husband, was descended from David through his son, King Solomon. Because of this Joseph could transfer legally to Jesus his claim to David’s throne, without being His biological father. Indeed, if Joseph had been Jesus’ biological father, Jesus could not be the Messiah, because there was a curse spoken over Solomon’s line by the prophet Jeremiah, which stated that NO descendant of Jehoiakim or Jehoichin could sit on the throne of David. If Jesus would have been of the seed of Joseph he would have been a descendant of Jehoiakim and Jehoichin (these curses are spoken at Jeremiah 22:30 and 36:30) and thus could not lay claim to David’s throne. Yet Jesus had to be of the “seed of David” to fulfill prophecies the likes of Psalm 132:11:
“The LORD made a promise to David, a sure promise that he will not take back. He promised, ‘I will make one of your descendants rule as king after you.'”
Jesus became the literal “seed” of David through Mary, his mother, who was descended from David, but not through the line of Solomon but rather through David’s son Nathan. Thus her womb provided the means to fulfill the seed promise, but not the throne promise, which only Joseph could provide.
The prophecy of Micah 5:2 necessitated that the Messiah be born in Bethlehem. Micah also wrote there that this One would be a “ruler” who had been “going forth” from “everlasting”. Thus the prophet tells us that the One born in Bethlehem was also pre-existent, from eternity. Liberal theologians, Jehovah’s Witnesses and others who deny this wonderful truth have not properly apprehended who Jesus really is. Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.
There is a mystery in the dreidel, unbeknownst to the Jewish children who will be playing it all around the world this Hanukah, a mystery directly related to the subject at hand. The dreidel, which is like a spinning top, has 4 Hebrew letters on its faces, each standing for a word and a number value. The meaning of the 4 words is “A GREAT SIGN HAPPENED THERE.” Their numerical value is 358.
The ancient rabbis pursued the science of gematria, which derives meaning from the numerical value of words. A rabbi so trained would look for the meaning of the value 358. There are three distinct uses of that value in the Bible, that refer to the Messiah. The first is the Hebrew word translated “messiah” at Dan. 9:25. It has a numerical value of 358.
In Genesis 49:10 is a prophecy which uses “Shiloh” to refer to the messiah. “The scepter shall not depart from Judah…until
Shiloh comes.” (Genesis 49:10) The ancient rabbis agreed that “Shiloh” refers to the Messiah and the value of yeba Shiloh, “Shiloh comes”, is
358. “The sceptre” here refers to kingly rulership, which departed from Judah in 70 A.D. Thus the Messiah must have come before then. Of course, Jesus did. Shiloh has come!
A third use of a messianic word for Messiah with a value of 358 is nachash. This word means “serpent” at Numbers 21:9, and Jesus used it to refer to Himself at John 3:14. (“Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, the Son of Man must also be lifted up.”) Thus we can see God’s purpose in providentially allowing the dreidel numbers to equal 358. The meaning of the words “A GREAT SIGN HAPPENED THERE” must refer to the Messiah. This phraseology would instinctively lead a Jew to Isaiah’s prophecy:
“The Lord Himself will give you a SIGN: Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14)
Immanuel, God with us! Matthew uses this prophecy to refer to Jesus’ birth, in Bethlehem. Thus the great sign is the virgin birth of God (for Immanuel means “God with us”, Matt. 1:23). A great sign indeed!!! Our minds are dull and slow to fathom this wonderful thing.
There is a most remarkable prophecy that reveals centuries beforehand the very year Jesus would be born. Most modern scholars agree that He was born in 4 B.C. Since many major events of the Bible happen according to definite time prophecies (120 years to the flood Gen. 3:6, the 400 years of sojourn of Abraham’s seed Gen. 15:13, the 70 year captivity Jer. 25:11) it should be no marvel that the date of birth of the Son of God Himself is revealed in Scripture. But it is revealed spiritually, according to the Biblical dictum “Spiritual things must be spiritually discerned”. Certainly the Incarnation is the most spiritual and sublime of truths. The 70 week prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27 is the source of revelation of Christ’s nativity.

In verse 25 we are told that from a “decree” to rebuild Jerusalem until the “Messiah” will be 69 weeks. There are 483 days in 69 weeks. Now a day often represents a year in Bible prophecy (see Ezekiel 4:6) so “69 weeks” can equal “483 years”. It is also a traditionally established axiom of prophetic interpretation that a prophetic year contains 360 days. Thus 483 “prophetic years” would only be 476 of our current years of 365.5 days. (483 X 360 days divided by 365.5 equals 476.) Thus we should expect to find that from a “decree” until the Messiah that there will be 476 years, and indeed we find this. For Queen Esther is issued a “decree” (same Hebrew word as in Dan. 9:25) at Esther 2:8. Since Esther can typify Jerusalem spiritually (since women often represent God’s people, see Jer. 6:2, Rev. 12 and Mark 3:34 and 35) here we have a decree to restore Jerusalem, spiritually speaking. This decree was issued in 480 B.C. Counting 476 years, we come to 4 B.C., the birth year of the Messiah, Jesus in Bethlehem. “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!” Romans 11:33
There are several other indications of a 4 B.C. birth for Jesus. Luke 2:2 says that Quirinius was governor of Syria when the census of Caesar was taken. Quirinius was governor from 4 B.C. to 1 B.C. and the register was commenced during the first year of his reign. Also, the Jerome Biblical Commentary lists 27 A.D. as the year that Jesus began His public ministry and since He was 30 at that time (Luke 3:23 and Number 4:3), He would have to have been born in 4 B.C. (Remember there is no zero year when calculating from A.D. to B.C.) Furthermore, there are well- known special planetary conjunctions in 7 and 6 B.C. that led the wise men to Jesus in 4 B.C. Herod asked the wise men intensely about their star-gazing. He based his command for baby boys two years old and under to be killed from this round of questioning. This squares with the conjunctions of 7 and 6 B.C. which led the wise men to look for some grand event.
The conjunction involved Venus, Saturn and Mars. To the wise men this would have indicated that a Messiah (Venus) was to be born among the Jews (long associated by astrologers with Saturn) with intense persecution (Mars, the symbol of war and opposition; this would be Herod’s reaction). God honored their searching by giving them a supernatural star in the heavens which led them to Jesus.

The marriage of the Lamb and the coming Millenium

The Wedding Paralleled in Salvation.

    A. Betrothal pictures salvation. Like the Jewish marriage custom the betrothal begins with a contract presented by the Bridegroom.

      1. Jesus Christ is the Bridegroom and He presents to all men His contract of salvation and He pays the price. The price for the redemption of bride was His suffering and sacrifice on the Cross.

        1 John 2:2 “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” Propitiation means full payment. Matt.  26:28 “For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” This covenant was not the one He made with Israel, but a new covenant made with those who would believe in Him in this age. Hebrews 8:6 explains this covenant. ” But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.”

      Jesus gave us a better covenant with better promises. 2. To Israel God promised the coming of the Messiah and the Messiah’s kingdom where Israel would be at peace and prosper. He promised them they would finally have the land that he gave to Abraham that extends from the Nile river in the south to the Euphrates in the north. 3. To believers saved in the Church Age Jesus has promised something much better. 4. The Gospel is God’s proclamation of the this new covenant. Jesus further revealed this New Testament or covenant when He gave us the Lord’s Supper:

        1 Corinthians 11:25 “After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.”

      The word “testament” means a contract or covenant.

    B. Jesus then offers people in this present age, which began at Pentecost in Acts 2, a new testament.

      1. We are saved just like people in the Old Testament which was by faith in God’s revealed promises. They looked in faith to the coming of the Messiah Jesus Christ and we look back on the finished work of Christ and the cross where Jesus paid the sins of the world….past, present and future. 2. The New Testament is not a new way to be saved, but a new promise in what our salvation would bring. We become the body and Bride of Christ. We have a special close relationship with Him now and in eternity. There is no relationship closer than that of a husband and wife.

        1 Corinthians 12:12-14 explains this saying “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many.” Ephesians 4:12 also states this: “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”

    C. Jesus’ promise to His Bride.

      1. Galatians 3:22 tells us: “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.” 2. Writing to the Ephesians Paul tells them and us of this promise. Here he says we are sealed…with the holy Spirit of promise. Ephesians 1:13-14 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

    D. Therefore Jesus Christ the Bridegroom has offered to us covenant, a proposal of salvation. But we will see that the proposal is conditional.

  The acceptance of the proposal.
    A. There would be no wedding if the bride did not respond to the offer of marriage. The bride would be offered a cup of red wine.

      1. The young man would pour a cup of wine for his perspective bride. This clearly symbolizes Jesus’ blood that He poured out for our sins. Once again we go to the Lord’s Supper to see this truth.

        Jesus said as recorded by Matthew 26:28 “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Luke makes it even clearer, ” Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” (Luke 22:20)

      2. Paul writes in Titus: Titus 3:5-7 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” In other words all the bride has to do is accept the proposal of marriage.

    B. Remember what John 3:36 said? “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 abideth on him.”

      John 1:12 “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.” When a person by faith receives Jesus Christ as their Savior it is a picture of the bride accepting the proposal of the Bridegroom.

    C. The Bridegroom’s promise:

      1. John 14:1-3 record the very words spoken by the Bridegroom to His bride.

        John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

      2. The Bridegroom goes prepares the wedding chamber and the Chuppah. . As in the Jewish wedding the Bridegroom leaves to prepare the new home for His Bride. 3. Notice that He promises to come again and receive her unto Himself, that where the Bridegroom is so will be the bride. 4. The proposal of marriage is made to the Father, the bride accepts the proposal and officially the couple is betrothed. The bride is now “sanctified” or set apart to her husband. The only way to break the covenant was divorce and the only grounds for divorce was that the bride, had deceived the bridegroom and was not pure.

        We see the example of this when Joseph found out that Mary was with child. Matthew 1:19 says, ” Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.” To “put her away” meant to divorce here. Yet, in the marriage of a believer to Jesus Christ there can be no divorce, because the only grounds of divorce, which is impurity….is completely removed by Jesus Christ. The believer is forgiven of all their sins and given eternal life.

      5. The Bridegroom must also have the approval of his father, which he received prior to making the marriage proposal. The wedding chamber and the Chuppah (huppa) was built on the bridegroom’s father’s house. It would
      be where he would live with his new bride. This being his Father’s home…the Father was the one who would say when the wedding chamber was ready and when the marriage might take place.

        Today the Chuppah is a canopy placed at the Father’s house under which the couple stand and the marriage vows are stated. In Bible times it was the home that the bridegroom prepared for his bride in his father’s home. If someone would ask the Bridegroom when was the day of the wedding he would reply “Only Father knows.”

      The Bridegroom comes for His bride.

      A. At the proper time appointed by the bridegroom’s father a messenger would be sent to announce the bridegroom’s coming and the bridegroom taking his wife. B. The bride not knowing when the bridegroom would come was to keep herself ready at all times.

        1. In Matthew 25 Jesus gave the parable of the ten virgins who were called to a marriage supper. These virgins when the heard the Bridegroom was coming would go to meet him and light the way with their lamps.

          The groom, best man and other male escorts would leave the groom’s father’s house and conduct a torch light procession to the home of the bride. The groom’s arrival would be preceded by a shout. This shout would forewarn the bride to be prepared for the coming of the groom. The guests would be invited to the wedding. In the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, Israel is the invited guest to the ceremony and feast.

        2. Once the Bridegroom arrived the wedding ceremony would take place and the bridegroom would spend their honeymoon night together in the home provided by the bridegroom. The bride would be adorned in her “wedding garments.” 3. Shortly after arrival the bride and groom would be escorted by the other members of the wedding party to the bridal chamber (chuppah). Prior to entering the chamber the bride remained veiled so that no one could see her face. While the grooms men and bridesmaids would wait outside, the bride and groom would enter the bridal chamber alone.

      C. Following the marriage there would be a seven day honey moon in which the bride groom would be together. At the end of the seven days the couple would emerge and the invited guests would have a “marriage supper.”

The disarmament of Nuclear weapons by every country

The disarmament of Nuclear weapons by every country

How many Christians realised, nuclear weapons=WW3 and it is imperative for the world to get rid of, with it there will never be peace on earth, if there is no disarmament, the coming of the Antichrist will cause untold damage and sufferings, I will only leave sticks and stones for him to play with. When he comes, there is nothing he can do as I have already changed the world.

N. Korea, US agree on nuclear halt
Posted: 29 February 2012 2221 hrs

SEOUL: North Korea’s new leadership said Wednesday it has agreed to suspend nuclear tests and its uranium enrichment programme as part of a deal that includes US food aid for the impoverished nation.
The agreement, confirmed simultaneously by Washington, represents a potential breakthrough in efforts to halt the North’s drive for atomic weapons following the death of longtime leader Kim Jong-Il last December.
The deal followed talks in Beijing last week between the two sides, the first dialogue since Kim’s young and untested son Jong-Un took power.
A Pyongyang foreign ministry spokesman said Washington had promised 240,000 tonnes of “nutritional assistance”, with the prospect of additional food aid.
The North has suffered persistent severe food shortages since a famine in the 1990s.
The North said it would allow the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, to monitor the moratorium on uranium enrichment.
The enrichment programme, first disclosed in November 2010, could give the communist state a second way to make atomic weapons in addition to its longstanding plutonium programme.
This is believed to have produced enough material for six to eight atomic weapons.
The North said the US side offered to discuss the lifting of sanctions and provision of light-water reactors to generate electricity as a priority, once six-party nuclear disarmament talks resume.
The Beijing talks were aimed at persuading the North to return to the six-nation talks which it abandoned in April 2009. It staged its second atomic weapons test a month later, following the first in 2006.
There were widespread reports in December that the two sides were close to such a deal aimed at restarting the broader talks. But the sudden death of Kim Jong-Il had thrown the process into uncertainty.
The new leadership headed by Jong-Un has taken a generally tough tone with the United States and South Korea, blasting their joint exercises which began Monday south of the border as a rehearsal for war.
“The United States still has profound concerns regarding North Korean behaviour across a wide range of areas, but today’s announcement reflects important, if limited, progress in addressing some of these,” US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement.
The North said it “agreed to a moratorium on nuclear tests, long-range missile launches, and uranium enrichment activity at Yongbyon and allow the IAEA to monitor the moratorium on uranium enrichment while productive dialogues continue”.
It said both sides reaffirmed their commitment to a September 2005 six-nation deal. This envisaged the North scrapping its nuclear programmes in return for major diplomatic and economic benefits and for a peace treaty formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War.
In the 2005 deal, the six parties agreed to “respect” the North’s desire for light-water reactors to generate electricity. Such reactors are less easily converted to possible military applications.
Washington-based North Korea expert L. Gordon Flake said the United States was eager for a cooling of tensions with North Korea as it heads into elections in November.
“In the context of a political year in Washington, the worst thing we could have when dealing with ongoing events in Syria and elsewhere is for North Korea to flare up,” said Flake, executive director of the Mansfield Foundation.
Flake said that the United States likely had been already prepared to provide North Korea with food aid based on humanitarian assessments.
“It appears to me that the North Koreans have agreed to a moratorium and inspections in return for something that we were already ready to give them, so it’s a good deal for the US,” he said.
Pyongyang, in a statement on its official news agency, said both sides recognised the armistice which ended the war as “the cornerstone of peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula until the conclusion of a peace treaty”.
Nuland said that the United States “reaffirms that it does not have hostile intent toward the DPRK (North Korea)and is prepared to take steps to improve our bilateral relationship in the spirit of mutual respect for sovereignty and equality”.
She called for greater people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.

The rebuilding of the Temple

All of those details from Ezekiel’s prophecy that were not explained in the Second Temple era, remain sealed until that time when “the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God, as the waters that cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9). In the future, we shall be enlightened with a higher level of spiritual awareness and consciousness, and at that time we will have the ability to perceive the deeper meaning of all those portions of Ezekiel’s vision that had heretofore been inaccessible. Until that time, it is the Second Temple’s attributes that must be upheld when rebuilding the Temple. Most importantly, Israel’s Divine obligation to rebuild the Holy Temple remains a constant and unchanging factor in the nation’s life, throughout every generation.

Temple Institute’s website:
[link to www.templeinstitute.org

A new era of universal harmony

Every prophet of Israel, without exception, prophesized that the Temple would be rebuilt, ushering in a new era of universal harmony and peace unparalleled in the history of man. Thus, the “movement” to rebuild the Holy Temple is not new. It was born almost 2,000 years ago, at the moment of the Second Temple’s destruction. For when the Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, it was the soul of Jewish people… and the entire world… as we believe it will be once again.

The rebuilding of the Holy Temple: It is happening now?

The reality of the Jewish experience means that the Temple will be rebuilt. Many people who visit the Temple Institute are incredulous and cannot help but exclaim: “Do you really think that you will live to see the Holy Temple rebuilt?” The answer to that question is of little importance. Let us rather recall that Jewish history has a trajectory, which began when the patriarch Abraham smashed his father’s idols. That trajectory has spanned the millennia, and it is obvious that we are rapidly approaching climactic times, in which the Holy Temple will once again become the focal point for mankind’s spiritual focus. Whether this transpires in our generation or not, we can still choose to be active participants, and not simply spectators, in God’s bold plan for the Redemption of Israel and all humanity.

The General Assembly on the anniversary of the 1947 vote on the UN Partition Plan, which recognized Jewish and Arab states west of the Jordan River. Israel accepted the vote, but the Arabs did not, and instead invaded the nascent Jewish state. Despite that fact, the UN marks the day as a day of mourning, and uses it to blast what it calls Israel’s “illegal occupation.”

Isreal must not give up its land but could offer other incentives to resolve the dispute, by exchanging your inheritence for a bowl of soup will definitely be cursed.

The Existence of Dark Matter, Anti-Matter and Reverse Matter

Concepts and Theories

What is Dark Matter and Anti-Matter?

What then is Reverse Matter?
It is the decay of Dark Matter and Antimatter.


If we travel faster than the speed of light, it is possible to crack the time/space concept and into another dimension in Space/Time. Where black holes are gateway to another dimension where dark matter, antimatter and reverse matter exists. The dimensions of Heaven/Hell are thru the eye of a needle and they exist since the beginning of Time.

“A Age of Miracles and Signs”


Matthew 13:11 “He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.”


Luke 8:10 “And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.”


And many will be deceived, even the elected….


“My Theory of Everything”.
When one travel at the speed of light, it would appear as a straight line, but when you travel beyond the speed of light, everything will appear as warped. There due to this this interference, it would appear that evolution started from a “Big Bang” theory but actually, it is “Alpha and Omega”. The entire Universe is made up of matter and anti-matter, and it exists in different state, solid, liquid and gas. Beyond the Black hole exist another dimension in anti-matter. Spirits and dimensions are anti-matter in a different state altogether, and the black hole is the force that will sent you thru the different dimensions, which consist of a dimension of matter, and a dimension of anti-matter. It will explain, why dimensional travel is possible, and every miracle, even internal combustion is possible, and an explanation for everything in the Universe. If you possess the powers of evolution with the knowledge of all molecular structures, you could actually create anything in this universe. You could change water to wine if you know the molecular structure of water and wine and you possess the power of evolution. Is nanotechnology the key? God’s secret lies, “in order to get to heaven, one must be able to squeeze a camel thru the eye of a needle”. It would open up the powers of evolution, where “Signs and Miracles” could be performed, to deceive even the elected…. How many christians understand God’s concept of time? A day in heaven could be 1000 years on earth, likewise a lot of bible prophesies are warnings about an event in future that will happen in a parallel dimension, will it or will it not happen, mankind has been given a choice, to prevent it to happen, until the seals are opened, nobody will know the Truth unless it comes to pass. It is due to Man’s hardened heart that God does it, if He really wants it to happen, He will not ask me to solve poverty and sufferings on this earth, neither will He tell me that the Future Heaven is on earth.

Creative solutions by setting priorities

This engineered slowdown will force governments to rethink their old economy policies of outright GDP growth by setting priorities, reforms and changes to stay relevant, in the “New Economy”. Let me give you an example, to tackle an ageing population and high healthcare costs and social welfare responsibilities that is costing most developing economies, the old age notion of for profits models cannot be used. Instead, governments should setup their own co-operative models of companies that is not profit driven but aim to be a social responsibility. Let me make my point clearer, in insurance terms, it is a numbers’s game, and an entire citizen’s healthcare costs can be maintained by pooling all your resources, to spread out to cover the risks of payout, if a non-profit model is used, healthcare coverage can be reduced to a minimum charge, to solve the problems of high healthcare costs, if you set the right priorities. Similarly, Government hospitals should adopt these models. A developing nation requires an expanding program for Non-profit organisations to expand it’s reach to every citizen, to take care of it’s social responsibilities. Not to worry, this slowdown is not a depression, in less than 3 years everything will bounce back, once all the required reforms are in place, the future is a better place for everyone. – Contributed by Oogle. 

通过设置优先级的创造性的解决方案
这个工程放缓将迫使政府重新考虑通过设置优先事项,改革和变化以保持相关性,在“新经济”,他们夺标的国内生产总值增长的旧经济政策。让我给你举个例子,以解决人口老龄化和高医疗保健费用和社会福利的责任,耗资大多数发展中经济体,老年的概念不能使用模型的利润。相反,政府应该设置自己的公司,不是利润的驱使下的合作模式,但目的是一种社会责任。让我让我的观点清晰,在保险条款,这是一个数字的游戏,和一个整个公民的医疗费用,可保持集中所有的资源,以传播了支付支付风险,使用一个非营利的模型时,医疗保障,可以减少到最低收费,要解决的医疗费用高的问题,如果你设置了正确的优先次序。同样,政府医院应采取这些模型。发展中国家需要一个非营利组织的扩大计划,以扩大它的触角伸向每一个公民,采取照顾它的社会责任。不用担心,这个放缓是不是抑郁症,一切都将在不到3年的反弹,一旦所有必要的改革到位,未来是大家的一个更好的地方。 – 提供者Oogle
