Just wanted to post on this Good Friday about one of the most misunderstood moments of Jesus’ crucifixion. When He cried, ‘My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?’ He was employing a technique that most rabbis of the day used while teaching – quoting only the first line of a psalm in order to direct attention to the lesson of it. This psalm was Psalm 22, which every good Jew knew by heart. The Psalm prophesied the situation that Jesus was in at THAT moment and was the prophecy of the suffering Messiah. The Jewish leadership that was at Calvary KNEW this and obviously misquoted Christ in order to save face (Jesus was not calling out to Elijah, known by the Jews as the ‘janitor of heaven’ often called upon for special favors). So many people today misunderstand that Jesus was teaching AT THAT MOMENT and pointing out the fulfillment of the prophecy of the suffering Messiah to the Jews present. The mocking insults and obfuscation that followed were not due to ignorance, but treachery.
It has been said that God communicates with us very often through everyday events.
That said, one can’t help but wonder if the democrat party has pondered the events of this past week.
Tuesday – A pro-life democrat won a congressional race in Pennsylvania. His name is LAMB, which is interesting since we are in the season of repentance – Lent.
3 days later, one of the most pro-abortion congresswomen, representing New York, died. Her last name is SLAUGHTER.
Seems like a heavenly nudge in the direction of ‘life’ to me.
Now we hear that NY governor Andrew Cuomo is apparently trying to do his best to mimic Josef Mengele with his latest demands to expand abortion to unimaginable proportions.
Will the USCCB FINALLY excommunicate him? IMHO, considering his gravely evil support of such savagery, a PUBLIC decision is long overdue.
Please pray for all…
Amen I say to you, that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and the blasphemies wherewith they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never have forgiveness, but shall be guilty of an everlasting sin.
– Mark 3:28-29
First of all, I don’t think it’s called ‘The Book of Life‘ for nothing, and that is indeed where your name must be recorded to enjoy the heavenly kingdom which God has prepared for those who love Him.
So what is the ‘unforgivable sin?’
As we just read in Scripture, it has to do with the Holy Ghost or ‘Holy Spirit.’ During Mass, we refer to the Holy Spirit as ‘the Lord, the giver of life.’
Taking all that into account, and cutting quickly to the chase, I now believe (in my own opinion) that the sin against the Holy Spirit may very well be a sin against the sanctity of human life at its very beginning.
Note well that I am not referring to any repentant, post-abortive woman. Heaven knows, they suffer very much. I believe this has more to do (possibly) with those who make the abortion agenda a cornerstone of their lives.
“Jesus answered: Thou shouldst not have any power against me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore, he that hath delivered me to thee, hath the greater sin.”
Jesus was speaking to a ruler there. He also spoke about those who ‘handed Him over’ to be killed. In our time, who hands babies over to be killed by the abortion industry? I believe that would be voters, and I’ve long held the belief that liberalism is spiritual disorder. If you are a person of faith, a conversation with a liberal can be very unsettling now. There is an anger, a vulgarity and a spiritual blindness which is palpable. Really, it’s almost like some liberals are actually possessed.
Finally, it’s important to point out that many believe the ‘sin against the Holy Spirit’ is ultimately the rejection of God Himself. However, the Holy Spirit has a specific place in the Trinity and He apparently primarily deals with the issue of ‘giving life.’
Much to ponder………….
“But Yeshua, turning to them, said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For indeed the days are coming in which they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore, and the breasts which never nursed!’ Then they will begin to say to the mountains, “fall on us!” and to the hills, “cover us!” For if they do these things in the green wood, what will be done in the dry?” Luke 23:28-31
Here’s an interesting article on Jesus final prophecy noted in that Scriptural passage.
On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.
– Zechariah 12:3
That’s chapter 12 verse 3 of the Book of Zechariah. I suppose the case can be made that the above Scripture refers to the time when nations battle against Jerusalem. However, it cannot be denied that whenever our leaders concerned themselves with ‘peace’ in the Middle East we’ve had many, many problems in the United States which usually manifest in ‘natural’ disasters.
The last time Jared Kushner dabbled in the peace process was right before Hurricane Harvey.
On Sunday, 12/3, Jared Kushner will again meet to discuss Mideast peace prospects, and it’s an interesting numerical coincidence with the above noted Scripture.
Now, if President Trump announces an embassy move to Jerusalem, that may be a blessing for the United States, however, if history is any prophetic indicator, achieving ‘peace’ appears to be hands off.
I don’t think that job is meant for a mere man.

Here is ‘Sophia,’ Saudi Arabia’s newest citizen. She has big plans for herself and humankind –
The technology behind this –
Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.e That number is 666.
– Revelation/Apocalypse 13:14-18
Didn’t you always wonder what the image that was given life and could speak was? In some translated texts it was called a ‘statue.’
Sophia means ‘wisdom’ which has its roots in a historical context related to Biblical ‘wisdom’ –
Sophiology is a philosophical concept regarding wisdom, as well as a theological concept regarding the wisdom of the biblical God.
Perhaps also worth noting – ‘AI’ as in ‘Artificial Intelligence’ means ‘to’ in Italian.
A woman on the net analyzed – ‘Been looking for a Christian who made the connection. We’ve been waiting for SOPHIA almost as long as we’ve been waiting for the Lord’s return. Rev 13:18 “Here is wisdom.” (SOPHIA in the Greek). This robot is just the image of the invisible entity known as SOPHIA…’
OK. Let’s attempt to extrapolate further…. It’s a demonic ‘image’ or counterfeit of a holy entity or attribute, IMHO.
Some translations of Scripture refer to a beast of the beast in a hierarchical way. Since we’ve already pointed out in an earlier post that Saint John’s description of 666 is very likely the symbol of islam, this is quite an astounding scientific advancement entering the global stage courtesy of Saudi Arabia, the region where islam has its epicenter.
Back to AI intelligence now. According to specs, these robots are networked. So, when one AI creature obtains knowledge or has experiences, positive or negative, the thoughts are downloaded to ALL the AI entities.
Is this creeping you out yet? Well, check this out –
Perhaps I should end this post with the original, globally recognized symbol for increased knowledge – an Apple with a bite out of it.
Some very interesting info in the following videos.
Cutting to the chase, I was shocked to learn that one of the Saudi princes who was recently arrested in the Saudi Arabian purge actually owns the top 5 floors of Mandalay Bay Hotel. He is the same one who owns shares with Fox, including of course, Fox News. Alwaleed is the richest man in Saudi Arabia, while his tentacles extend far beyond ‘the kingdom’ controlling some very influential entities in the U.S.A.
He is the founder, chief executive officer and 95-percent owner of the Kingdom Holding Company, a Forbes Global 2000 company with investments in companies in the financial services, tourism and hospitality, mass media, entertainment, retail, agriculture, petrochemicals, aviation, technology and real-estate sectors. The company had a market capitalization of over $18 billion in 2013. Al-Waleed is Citigroup’s largest individual shareholder, the second-largest voting shareholder in 21st Century Fox, and owns Paris’ Four Seasons Hotel George V and part of the Plaza Hotel. Time has called him the “Arabian Warren Buffett”. In November 2017 Forbes listed Al-Waleed as the 45th richest man in the world, with an estimated net worth of $18 billion.
I’d also be willing to bet he is very influential in the DC swamp, which continues to drain…………
