“Brillium”? Methinks he means beryllium.
Well, I've gotten my second good laugh of the day from FR.
This ain’t happening until some major changes take place. And, sorry, I see those changes going in the wrong direction.
Yes, the writer should have spell-checked the names of the elements, but he is not American. Other countries do have different spellings for some of them..
I love the “Left Behind” series (mentioned in the article) and learned a lot from it. However, I did not feel that it fully portrayed God's intent for giving the prophecies. Everyone must make their own judgments in these matters. I would not at all ever seek to step on another’s faith and calling, for I know that an earnest seeker after God will always be guided by Him in all things. I offer this as my own personal belief.
I have been reading “The Harbinger” by Cahn. I now subscribe to the school of thought that we must not be fatalistic about the prophecies of the Bible, we must view them as a warning. That is the point Cahn makes. I have not quite finished it yet, but last night one passage in particular caught my attention:
The characters in the book were discussing the examples of when God's judgment was earned and due, but there was a staying of that judgment because of God's mercy when there was a response of His people to His call for repentance.
The examples cited by Cahn are,
1)Sodom - God was willing to save it if the righteous 10 could be found
2)King Josiah's goodness stayed the judgment during his reign
3)Ninevah and the Prophet Jonah
from page 220 of my soft cover edition:
...”You see, the one who wills for judgment is man, not God. The heart of God wills for salvation. Greater than His judgments are His compassions.”...
...”So Israel is warned but doesn't turn back and is destroyed. Sodom could have been saved for the sake of the 10 righteous but there weren't even 10, and the city was destroyed. The judgment of Judah is decreed but held back, averted for a set time, because of one righteous king. And Ninevah is told of its judgment by a prophet who doesn't even want the city to repent...”
...”The message is ‘RETURN’”...
I liked what the author of the above posted article stated:
“...This is the U.S. alongside other allies that will wake up in the end.
Christians need to stop heeding the warnings of fatalists who warn of the utter doom of America. Instead, they must pursue their nationalist aspirations which stem from the Bible against the universalists of Satan.
This defeatist mentality is hardly Christian; God ordained nationalism and has set up America for His purpose, to destroy tyrannies as it has always done...”
Thank goodness the Greek, Italian and Spanish armadas are with us!
Let Iran block Hormuz Straits. It will hurt mainly China’s oil imports. Can you think of anything more stupid than Americans borrowing money from China to protect oil supplies to China? Well, I guess we are now the slaves and they are the masters. So we must obey.
