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”

Father Aidan Nichols Signs Open Letter Charging Pope Francis With Heresy

The Dominican is one of 19 academics and clergy calling on the world’s bishops to admonish the Pope and publicly reject heresy or face losing the papacy.

The well-known and respected Dominican theologian Father Aidan Nichols has put his name to an historic open letter to bishops claiming Pope Francis is guilty of heresy and calling on them to formally correct him.

The letter, released on April 30, the feast day in the traditional calendar of St. Catherine of Siena — the 14th century saint famous for her criticism of Pope Gregory XI — states that Francis has on occasions “knowingly and persistently” denied what he knows is divinely revealed Church teaching.

Such words and actions, the signatories continue, “amount to a comprehensive rejection of Catholic teaching on marriage and sexual activity, on the moral law, and on grace and the forgiveness of sins.”

They add that they have taken this measure “as a last resort to respond to the accumulating harm caused by Pope Francis’s words and actions over several years, which have given rise to one of the worst crises in the history of the Catholic Church.”

The signatories call on bishops to investigate the claims they put forth, and then correct Pope Francis by calling on him “to reject these heresies.”

If he should “persistently refuse,” they call on the bishops to declare that Francis has “freely deprived himself of the papacy.”

“A heretical papacy may not be tolerated or dissimulated to avoid a worse evil,” the authors write. “It strikes at the basic good of the Church and must be corrected.”

They also link his purported rejection of some Church teachings with his favour shown to bishops and cardinals found guilty of abuse or covering up for abuse and corruption, such as Cardinals Theodore McCarrick, Godfried Danneels, Donald Wuerl and Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga.

They explain that the open letter marks the “third stage” of a process that began in the summer of 2016 when a group of Catholic clergy and scholars wrote a private letter to cardinals and Eastern patriarchs pointing out heresies that they said were in the Pope’s post-synodal apostolic exhortation on the family, Amoris Laetitia.

Are You Ruled by “social” media too? Get OFF it bro! Be like Jesus!

Thailand is as maligned (by the globalists!) as this lady was… initially.What a great video!

Don’t judge a book by the cover! Look deeper, and don’t gossip. Unite! Do not divide! God’s children are supposed to be One BRIDE! But the way it looks right now, we have still a long way to go. The infighting, the criticism, the condemning, the judgmentality, the self righteousness! Oh the humanity… Oh Lord help us to overcome. Are you bashing other Christians? Are you selfrighteously condemning others? Are you destroying God’s work for your own bitter vengeance? Your face will show it. Pursed lips like Clinton, bitter hard eyes, bitter biting words. NOT at all, like meek and lowly Jesus, who wept for the sinful multitudes with compassion. Com means with. Passion means feeling and suffering!

 

As Foreseen & Expected Muslim Scripture Attack Leads To BIBLE Scripture Attack on Freedom of Speech!

As we wrote earlier in our blog, that we can expect the way the New World Order set up the Muslims by infiltration and radicalisation, with the objective to destroy them as a religious force, that the Globalists will and IS doing the same to Christianity, is now coming true with the following news that a Christian School had to defend Scriptures and is now forbidden to teach them; thus nullifying Western cherished Free Speech! Because that is what it is all about. The ‘Silencing of the Lamb!’ And silencing His children!

You see all these attacks against Islam by “Christians” (Think Alex Jones! Watson! Geert Wilders, Tommy Robinson, These last 2 both Israel supporters, by the way, that PROMOTES war against Iran and WW3) – WILL backfire on the Children of God! Therefore extreme wisdom is warranted for and expected of His Children, not to dig a pit for others that they will fall into themselves, nor to move a stone that will be rolled over them later.

But that is what is now happening in America with these dumbed-down, dumb, un-spiritual, Redneck “Christian” Zionist, blind leaders & Evangelical stretcher cases. For years the US State Department on their website, has the Bible already condemned and put down as “Hate Literature!” And that is and remains the agenda of the Antichrists!

As they did with Islam – British ‘Intelligence’ kickstarting the Muslim Brotherhood already in the early 20th century & French Íntelligence’ keeping Khomeini on ice until they planted him in Iranian government! – these Antichrist forces are setting Christians up for infiltration, entrapment, and final inside assault and destruction from within, likewise.

We knew that it was coming as it is predicted by Daniel the Prophet in Daniel 11 and 12, but ‘my gawd’, why do we have to give it so much help for it to come to pass so soon. Surely the children of this world are wiser then the Children of Light! As Jesus said. Why do people have to succumb to Muslim bashing? We are expected to LOVE everyone and even our enemies!!! What’s wrong with these people! Continue reading “As Foreseen & Expected Muslim Scripture Attack Leads To BIBLE Scripture Attack on Freedom of Speech!”

Kent Hovind A Bruised Reed Will He Not break, Nor Quench a Smoking Flax. Very Touching!

Beautiful touching video of Kent Hovind touched by the everlasting love of Jesus who was prophesied as, “A bruised reed will he not break, and a smoking flax will he not quench.” He is being relentless attacked by who? By American “Christians”! Professing believers who condemn him for being divorced from his wife who actually LEFT HIM!

Not only that, but these judgmental religionists blame him for re-marrying! Whereas Paul said that when the unbelieving party departs then a brother or sister is not bound any longer.” In other words he is free to marry again. People can be so Pharisaical, so judgmental, so condemning, as if they haven’t read what Jesus said, or what He was like! Do they even know Jesus? MUST WATCH!

Spirit World Converging with Physical World, but the simplicity of Christ reigns!

THIS IS A MUST WATCH! Not so much for the straight-laced – though correct- Christian teaching, but for the examples he trots out of many Magicians using demons to do “magic.” The demon-deceived power-hungry dupes of Satan ALSO believe that “All things are possible!”, except that we believe that ALL THINGS are possible with GOD! However, we think that God’s ALL THINGS perfectly outshine Satan’s “all things”, just as Moses’ miracles outshone the limited capabilities of the magicians of Pharaoh.

French Baker Sells His Business to Homeless Person for Just 1 Euro

In a heartwarming display of generosity and gratitude, French baker Michel Flamant recently sold his boulangerie to a homeless man for just €1. The man, Jerome Aucant, had previously saved Flamant from suffocating to death inside the bakery, during a fire.

Flamant admits to being a rather “piggish character”, but he’s proven that his heart is in the right place. In fact, long before his brush with death, he would greet Aucant outside his establishment every morning and treat him to a cup of coffee and a croissant. And his kindness eventually paid off on that fateful day in December when he nearly died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
