Flavius Josephus on Heaven & Hades, to the Greeks

An Extract Out Of Josephus’s Discourse To The Greeks Concerning Hades

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 afore-determined 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 rejoic 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. Continue reading “Flavius Josephus on Heaven & Hades, to the Greeks”

Angel Under the Water

http://www.well.com/user/bobby/ufo/angel_water.html

I remember this as if it were yesterday, even tho’ I’m 18 and it happened when I was 2 at the Tonawanda, NY public pool one bright summer’s day. Mummy was sunning on the deck aside the deep end whilst I splashed in the shallow, turning circles in the cool water. A little boy came over with his mother, both terribly large people, though the boy was m’ age, and his mother struck up conversation with m’ mummy as I turned circles.

Mummy called me over and told me to go play with the new boy whilst she spoke with his mother, and so, we tottled off to the shallow end to check each other out. We splashed a bit and stood awkwardly and I piped, “Do you want to play?” to which he replied, “Well, I dunno…” And so I turned m’ back and ran m’ fingers along the smooth edge of the pool wall.

WHY disguise Rebel Angels as ALIENS?

PIC: NOT a mummified “ALIEN” Just manipulation of light in the eye sockets of a normal human skull!

Much of the ufo activity in the public forum has been designed by the beings pretending to be “aliens” to convey a seemingly benign agenda. Conspicuous Ufo sightings occurred at the advent of our atomic age. Further sightings occurred at airforce bases with nuclear capabilities in the 1970’s in which all control of the weapons was lost, and trajectories were reprogrammed.

These encounters were staged to show that nonhumans were in control of such weapons of destruction. Conceivably, having such capabilities, if they were going to destroy humans or takeover the earth, they would have done so already. By feigning a disinclination towards domination, the nonhumans are promoting a seemingly peaceful agenda, fitting in to the New Age Globalist “Star Trek” paradigm.

A Woman With 4 Kids Broke Down In The Pouring Rain. After No One Stops, An Old Man Knocks On Her Window (Was he an Angel?)

This is Tawny Nelson with three of her four kids who live in Florida.  After her truck broke down at night in the pouring rain with her four young daughters crying in the back, countless people just drove by as she begged for help. Right as she was about to break down herself, a 74-year-old man with a bad limp knocked on the window.

This is what she wrote to her local news station:

“I am the single mother of four absolutely beautiful little girls.

They are 9, 5, 2, and 6 weeks.

And things have been particularly rough since my ex left.

My truck had a flat I constantly had to air up.

The driver side window motor died.

And I needed a new alternator belt.

The truck was a mess.
