    VAMPIRISM & THE CROSS

    Thursday, May 17, 2012, 7:53 PM [General]

     

          We know what a vampire is. How does this subject relate to the cross of Jesus Christ? There are many parallels between this legend and Christian beliefs.

          In vampire folklore, it is the evil undead creature who is cursed because it has to sustain his immortality by spilling & drinking the blood of man. It is the vampire who is cursed & it is "innocent" man who has to shed blood so the Dracula type being  can continue living eternally. In Christianity, it was the blood of an innocent eternal being that was shed so a "cursed" mankind could live for eternity without being tormented in the fires of hell. Read [Leviticus 17:11].

          The cross is a wooden stake Jesus the eternal being died on a wooden stake. Nails were driven into His wrists & feet with a wooden mallet. To kill a vampire you hammer a wooden stake through its heart. This stake destroys the evil undead person. Christ destroyed evil by taking it away who look to the cross for salvation.

          Another parallel is Christians drink wine at communion which is symbolic o the blood that Christ spilled, read [1 Cor. 11:25]. The vampire has to drink blood to survive which is an obvious mockery of Christ.

          Today, we are fascinated by vampires and blood, and having eternal life. Its a shame people ignore the one whose "blood" was spilled so they could have that eternal life.

    WHERE IS HEAVEN LOCATED?

    Wednesday, May 16, 2012, 8:15 PM [General]

     

          Its been said once you get there its like you were going home, its so familiar to you. See [Rev. 4:1 and Acts 1:11]. From these verses we know that heaven is in an upward direction and not on the surface of this earth. It is above and outside of this earth, away in space.

          But, which way is up? Our earth is always spinning, the directio of up is always changing. Astronomers have directed their telescopes to the northern area of the sky have discovered an empty space, where there are no stars where no stars can form. Why? Could that empty space be the entrance to heaven?

          Why doesn't NASA send an unmanned space probe into that empty space? Check this out...there are 7 heavens created. Heaven #1 has no function except that of covering up the light during the night time here on earth.

    WHAT WILL WE DO IN HEAVEN?

    Wednesday, May 16, 2012, 7:37 PM [General]

     

          For one thing, besides what yoiu may already know, there is no need or secrets and gossip, nothing to hide, we can eat if we want to, there's no need for sleep. We will have all eternity to interact with a great multitude. In other words, heaven will be a place of infinite learning. Just getting to know everyone will take eternity!

          Another thing, Jesus said heaven is paradise and His interpretation of paradise is a park, or forest, or orchard, like a Garden of Eden [I'm glad I don't like apples].

          Let's speculate...Has God created this immense universe as our "Garden" for all eternity? Will we have access to the stars? Perhaps He will assign a galaxy to each of us, with the rewarding work of developing it for His glory? We can even visit  the Gardens of our friends. How will be travel to and from each galaxy and to God? I heard we just think of where we want to go and we are there!! Cool!

          I can dream can't I? Stop and think for a moment...God created billions of galaxies, more than people. We won't have use for stars, suns, galaxies in heaven when it is always daylight. OR, are they for the next creation of humans on another planet that we don't know about?

    A MANSION IN HEAVEN?

    Wednesday, May 16, 2012, 6:55 PM [General]

     

          Read [John 14:2-3]. Then, check out [Rev. 7:4]...it tells us that there will be a "great multitude in heaven that no one could number" all standing before the throne. Here, again, the imagery is of multitudes together, not living seperately in different mansions.

          Many people believe we will have our own mansion on streets of gold. Further research translations state a Greek word for mansion is dormatory [dorm for short]. Another thing, you can eat if you want to although its not necessary. Back to the dorm situation...I hope no one can snore in heaven, if we even sleep at all!

    IS OUR UNIVERSE JUST A HOLOGRAM?

    Sunday, May 13, 2012, 7:54 PM [General]

          What is a hologram? First the picture...

    Here's a far out thought-is the hologram how God perceives reality [including us and the earth and our universe] ?

          Second, what is a hologram? A hologram is the intermediate photogtraph [or a photograph record] that contains information for reproducing a 3-D image by holography. What is holography? Holography is the branch of optics that deals with the use of coherent light from a laser in order to make a hologram that can then be used to create a 3-D image. See image below:

         

    So, who would be operating the equipment to produce another universe? Its no secret that space will be expanding for all eternity. Someone in this other universe is the only universe in existence and they are  producing us by way of a hologram as well as the earth and our universe for whatever reason, known only to them! Would that mean that possibly heaven and hell are holograms too if those in the other universe have produced them as well?

    BOTH UNIVERSES MERGE INTO ONE.

    Sunday, May 13, 2012, 6:58 PM [General]

     

          What if two universes, both housing us, in fact an identical copy of us in the other universe except they have powers and abilities far beyond anything we know. They would have the ability to make thinhgs happen in our universe, but mainly our earth. Example: they...with the help of their counterpart here on earth, make earthquakes happen anywhere in the world and at any magnitude. All they need do is concentrate on making it happen and it does.

          And, other diasters that would make us feel like the world is ending. As well as...say...cause the numbers to change on stocks on all three stock exchanges; cause street lights to malfunction, cause automobiles to hit each other while stationary, and, cause wars anywhere in the world.

          Here's the big secret...our exact duplicate in the other universe and merge into ours and be in our presence. If the other universe is some how destroyed with the help of a special large machine such as the LHC to screw up their gravity, etc. to push that universe back or send it in another direction.

          What would that other universe housing our duplicate? Could the two of us survive and live together? Let's hope another universe doesn't collide with ours.

    MY WIFE'S BABY TO BE CREATED.

    Sunday, May 13, 2012, 3:37 PM [General]

     

          In other words, my wife Melissa wants to become a mother. Its a long way away, so we have time to decide on a name for the child whether or not its a male or female. I want a boy, of course, she wants a girl. If it turns out to be a boy, she suggests giving her a boy's name like Alice. That way, he will learn to defend himself and his name whenever someone teases him.

          To be sure its going to be a boy, we and the doctor will help to make it sure as the child develops. There's a procedure that allows a couple to choose the sex of their child.

          Anyone have any names to suggest?

    UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN MY GROUP

    Sunday, May 13, 2012, 3:25 PM [General]

     

    There are some questions I presented to my group that no one can really answer. Now its your turn and I doubt if you can answer them. 

    1.  Jesus was a man on earth, Acts tells us Jesus ascended into space [towards heaven]. Space has no oxygen to support life, how can this be and wouldn't he have a little trouble breathing till He reached heaven?

    2.  If Adam & Eve  were ordered out of the Garden because they are of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, why did God punish them for doing something evil without the knowledge of good and evil? NOTE: They were just created, couldn't it be because they were just hungry?

    3.  What was the population of the earth at the time of the Flood?

    4.  Is Judas [who betrayed Jesus] mentioned by name in the Old Testament?
