    First I give all credit to Jesus and the Holy Spirit working through me.

    Second, the results are very profound.

    I ask you the same question that Jesus did after stating that a house divided against itself would fall, “Would satan cast out satan?”

    Matthew 12:26 and if Satan casteth out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand?

    Mark 3:23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?

    Luke 11:18 And if Satan also is divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out demons by Beelzebub.

    “Reading people’s souls is NOT a give of the Holy Spirit given to the church.”

    It is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. It’s how Jesus knew the thoughts and memories of all who were around Him. It’s also how He did His healing. And Jesus was speaking the truth when He said to His Disciples, “The things that I do and more, you too shall do in my name.”

    The Bible teaches us discernment of spirits and teaches us not to listen to those of satan. But is also give us guidance as to what to do with those that are clean or good spirits.

    “Provide some Scripture to back up your claims.”

    If you are referring to Hebrews 9:27.... I had a problem with that one until I researched it in the lexicon. It is a true statement. My question to you is... If judgement comes when the Bridegroom arrives, what judgement are they speaking of at the time of death of the physical body?

    I read people’s souls. They contain every memory of every experience that a soul ever experienced, even prior to entering the physical body in the womb. The so called judgement or life review people speak of at death is merely the conscious awareness of an individual expanding in reverse sequence through all the stored memories in the soul as it is no longer shackled to the the physical body. It really is that simple.

    Many times I will encounter the spirits of wonderful people who have died and merely hang around for a while to consul the loved ones they left behind. They are going to Heaven, but just as Jesus said to His Disciples, “don’t touch Me as I have not risen yet.” They end up staying here for a while prior to passing over. The message they most often ask me to relay is that “All is ok.”

    “Provide some Scripture to back up your claims.”

    I mentioned in the original post that most of my statements are based upon actual experiences. Life has been interesting. I do read and study the Bible but do not get caught up in debating with people. My identity is as “His Servant” and He is the only one I need to please. However, I am human and I do make mistakes. If I learned from all of my mistakes I would be a genius!!!

    I respect what other’s believe, even if my experience and interpretation differs from theirs. It is my desire that others pray for me to receive guidance when I stray from understanding and/or following His word.

    Blessings

    Lazarus would disagree with that. So would I as I died, left my body and then returned to my physical body. It’s the soul that really matters and nothing can destroy it, not even an atomic bomb exploded on one’s head. However, satan can shackle it for a long time!

    What about the misguided souls of the aborted fetuses I encounter? They are not demons or even recruited by satan’s minions. They are just lost and often clinging to their mother. Very pure, but also very lost.

    I respect what you are saying. And, I do believe the Bible is the word of God and accept Jesus as my Savior. I must reconcile my experiences with the Bible and have often found different meaning of scripture by meditating and praying for guidance when my experiences differ from my original Bible interpretation.

    “This is true ONLY if the soul ever had a physical body prior to being recruited by satan’s minions.”

    These are not demons, they are just misguided souls. The demons can be cast out, but not saved as they are in the category of fallen angels who never had physical bodies.

    Just yesterday I was looking for an old tape recording that I made many years ago that’s about a half hour long. It made the hair stand up on the back of your neck when you listened to it. This one was pure nasty.... If you try to deal with them yourself they suck the energy right out of your body. The only thing that can protect you is the Holy Spirit as they can’t take that level of energy.

    >>What is innocence?<<
    “Having been completely forgiven through Christ’s death and resurrection.”

    Very true, but there is more to it. Being forgiven cleanses our soul. Allowing Christ to be in us through perfect communion maintains the innocence.

    “They just think that they love their sin. Imagine the Hell that it would be to know that total fulfilling love was held away from you and all you had for yourself was the stain of what you had done, forever.”

    It tortures my soul to have tasted heaven and be sent back here against my will. When I died, I did not want to return to my physical body. I miss being in the feeling of heaven more than words can ever describe. It is a great torture to remember the feeling and not be there in it.

    Incidently, the “raised up” referred to in the rapture is merely our souls being raised up to the same operational frequency of the “Holy Spirit” or “Great Helper” that can exist within us when we are no longer full of ourselves.

    This being raised up is what protects us from the tortures of hell.

    You are 100% correct.

    I have experienced both in this life and the experience of both is beyond words.

    Being with God is pure total bliss. Being separated from God is pure torture.

    Being caught in the middle where I catch glimpses of both is the wildest roller coaster ride possible and is also torture. Our souls are but seeds planted here on this earth to grow, up out of the darkness of the earth to utilize the Light to grow. This is why Jesus explained what He did in Matthew 13 when the Disciples asked to understand the parable of the tares in the wheat.

    If you could hear the demons scream when they are surrounded by the Holy Spirit, it gives you a good idea how they perceive hell. They are the worst screams I have ever heard.

    When they finally calm down and allow me to guide them to redemption, they find that they too have a spark of God essence at the center of their soul. This is true if the soul ever had a physical body prior to being recruited by satan’s minions.

    Excellent article and very accurate based upon my experiences. The “Lake of Fire” bit is very accurate. Eternal damnation is holding onto the garbage that keeps us at the level of fire rather than being purified to the point where fire can not harm us. This is the reason that a prayerful blessing to an evil person is like heaping hot coals upon their heads.

    This is also why the weeds will be burned in the end times.

    It’s the reason that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego when thrown in the fire they never get burned. (Daniel 3:23)

    It’s the reason why the demons can’t come close to a person filled with the Holy Spirit as they are afraid it will burn them.

    We, when we cleanse our souls can allow the Holy Spirit to enter us and we are raised up to the level of consciousness where fire does not harm us.

    I was severely burned by fire and hot oil when a fryer exploded in front of me (due to my own stupidity). I put our the fire and raised my left arm up to look at the severity of the burns. The skin was burnt away and just as I was getting ready to go to the hospital, this energy moved down into my finger tips and down through my arm to my armpit. My arm was totally covered with goosebumps the size of huge zits with white heads on them. Scared the crap out of me. After about 30 seconds the goosebumps went away and my arm was totally healed. the skin that was burned away was back and totally healed. Not even any redness or tenderness. This whole event scared the heck out of me at the time as I didn’t understand it. I did not pray for it to happen, it just happened, in spite of me. I do feel a lot of loving gratitude for it though.

    It is that same energy that radiates through me that protects me when doing exorcisms. I’ve had the spirits take over people’s bodies and come charging at me swinging, hissing and spitting. When they hit that energy a few feet from me it stops them as though they hit a block wall. It is the strength that only comes through my weakness.

    The one point where I disagree with the article is that forgiveness is also available to souls who were recruited by satan even though they no longer have physical bodies. Forgiveness is available right up until the Bridegroom returns.

    “To me, Clinton has no chance to be in the WH. She is “damaged goods.””

    Clinton is in trouble as she is accused eating Muslim Terrorist Carpet....

    Huma Abedin is a practicing Muslim. She speaks English, Urdu, and Arabic.

    Huma Mahmood Abedin (born July 28, 1976) is an American political aid to Hillary Clinton.

    While a student at George Washington University, Abedin began working as an intern in the White House in 1996, assigned to then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. In 1998, she was an assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. She later worked as traveling chief of staff and “body woman” during Clinton’s 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination campaign, and subsequently served as Deputy Chief of Staff under Clinton in the State Department. She is currently a director of the transition team that is helping Clinton return to private life, and works for the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation.

    On June 13, 2012, Republican members of Congress, led by far-right Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, alleged that Abedin “has three family members–her late father, her mother and her brother – connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations. Abedin was subsequently placed under police protection after she received threats of violence, possibly connected to the allegations.

    Huma’s mother SALEHA MAHMOOD ABEDIN, A FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE MUSLIM SISTERHOOD

    Born in 1940 in what is now Pakistan, Saleha Mahmood Abedin is the widow of the late Zyed Abedin, an Indian-born academic who taught at the prestigious King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia during the early 1970s. In 1976 Saleha gave birth to a daughter, Huma Abedin, while she and her husband were living in the United States. The following year, Saleha earned a PhD in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania.

    In 1978, the Abedin family relocated from Kalamazoo, Michigan to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This move took place when Abdullah Omar Naseef, then-vice president of Abdulaziz University, recruited Zyed Abedin, who had been his colleague at the University earlier in the decade, to work for the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), a Saudi-based Islamic think tank that Naseef was preparing to launch. Both Zyed and Saleha Abedin would serve as editorial-board members of IMMA’s in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA). It should be noted that Abdullah Omar Naseef was an Islamic extremist with a significant history of ties to al Qaeda; moreover, he became secretary-general of the Muslim World League (MWL), a fundamentalist group with links to Osama bin Laden, in 1983. In the 1990s, Saleha Abedin herself would serve as an official representative of MWL.

    After her husband died in 1993, Saleha Abedin became the director of IMMA; today she serves as editor-in-chief of its Journal.

    In addition to her duties with IMMA, Abedin is a board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief (IICDR), a Union of Good-affiliated organization that has long been banned in Israel because of its ties to the terrorist organization Hamas.

    Abedin also directs the Amman, Jordan-based International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child (IICWC), a Muslim World League affiliate that identifies itself as part of the aforementioned IICDR. Abiding by a charter authored by Yusuf al-Qaradawi and several other leading Muslim Brotherhood members, IICWC advocates the implementation of strict Sharia Law and calls for the repeal of Egyptian statutes that currently ban female genital mutilation, child marriage, and marital rape. Because each of these practices find doctrinal support in Sharia, IICWC favors them.

    Saleha Abedin is an influential founding member of the Muslim Sisterhood, a pro-Sharia entity composed of the wives of some of the highest-ranking leaders in the Muslim Brotherhood. A report by the Egyptian opposition newspaper Al-Liwa Al-Arabi says that these women are recruited to: “smuggle secret documents”; “spread the Brotherhood’s ideology by infiltrating universities, schools and homes”; “fulfill the interests of the Brotherhood”; and “organiz[e] projects which will penetrate [the Brotherhood’s] prohibited ideology into the decision-making in the West ... under the guise of ‘general needs of women.’” One particularly noteworthy member of the Sisterhood is Nagla Ali Mahmoud, wife of Mohammed Morsi (the Islamist who was elected president of Egypt in June 2012).

    A source of this interest has been Buchanan’s close and intimate relationship with William Rufus King (who became Vice President under Franklin Pierce). The two men lived together in a Washington boardinghouse for 10 years from 1834 until King’s departure for France in 1844. King referred to the relationship as a “communion”, and the two attended social functions together. Contemporaries also noted the closeness. Andrew Jackson called them “Miss Nancy” and “Aunt Fancy” (the former being a 19th-century euphemism for an effeminate man), while Aaron V. Brown referred to King as Buchanan’s “better half”. James W. Loewen described Buchanan and King as “siamese twins.” In later years Kat Thompson, the wife of a cabinet member, expressed her anxiety that “there was something unhealthy in the president’s attitude”.

    Buchanan adopted King’s mannerisms and romanticized view of southern culture. Both had strong political ambitions and in 1844 they planned to run as president and vice president. One historian has found them both to be soft, effeminate, and eccentric.

    Our Real First Gay President

    Don’t believe what Newsweek’s cover tells you: The first gay president was James Buchanan more than a century ago
    by JIM LOEWEN

    There can be no doubt that James Buchanan was gay, before, during and after his four years in the White House. Moreover, the nation knew it, too — he was not far into the closet.

    Today, I know no historian who has studied the matter and thinks Buchanan was heterosexual. Fifteen years ago, historian John Howard, author of “Men Like That,” a pioneering study of queer culture in Mississippi, shared with me the key documents, including Buchanan’s May 13, 1844, letter to a Mrs. Roosevelt. Describing his deteriorating social life after his great love, William Rufus King, senator from Alabama, had moved to Paris to become our ambassador to France, Buchanan wrote:

    I am now “solitary and alone,” having no companion in the house with me. I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them. I feel that it is not good for man to be alone; and should not be astonished to find myself married to some old maid who can nurse me when I am sick, provide good dinners for me when I am well, and not expect from me any very ardent or romantic affection.

    Every second term Democrat president in the last century has gotten us into war.

    Wilson... after running on a slogan to keep us out of the war... full scale escalation into WWI

    FDR... after running on the slogan “No American boys on foreign soil”... full escalation into WWII

    Truman, finished FDR’s term and during his second term, full escalation into Korea.

    Johnson, finished Kennedy’s term and during his second term, full escalation into Vietnam

    Clinton, during his second term the groundwork was laid for 911 and the war on terror inherited by Bush.

    Obama... we are in his second term and you can see that WWIII is fast approaching.

    Democrat president’s foreign policy is like a parent that raises a child with no discipline. They end up having a knock down drag out with a teenager who does not listen at all and does not cooperate.

    The Gulf War under Bush 1 was a smack on the bottom for Saddam to let him know we meant business. Clinton just launched missiles to enforce the air ban and kept the fire going.

    They do have their similarities.....

    Per Wiki:

    Buchanan was nominated by the Democratic Party in the 1856 Presidential election. Throughout most of Pierce’s term, he was stationed in London as a minister to the Court of St. James’s and therefore was not caught up in the crossfire of sectional politics that dominated the country.

    As President, he was often called a “doughface”, a Northerner with Southern sympathies, who battled with Stephen A. Douglas for the control of the Democratic Party. Buchanan’s efforts to maintain peace between the North and the South alienated both sides, and the Southern states declared their secession in the prologue to the American Civil War. Buchanan’s view of record was that secession was illegal, but that going to war to stop it was also illegal.

    By the time he left office, popular opinion was against him, and the Democratic Party had split. Buchanan had once aspired to a presidency that would rank in history with that of George Washington.

    However, his inability to identify a ground for peace or address the sharply divided pro-slavery and anti-slavery partisans with a unifying principle on the brink of the Civil War has led to his consistent ranking by historians as one of the worst presidents in American history.

    Historians in both 2006 and 2009 voted his failure to deal with secession the worst presidential mistake ever made.

    In 1818, Buchanan met Anne Caroline Coleman. Conflicting rumors abounded, suggesting that he was marrying her for her money, because his own family was less affluent, or that he was involved with other women. Buchanan never publicly spoke of his motives or feelings, but letters from Anne revealed she was paying heed to the rumors.

    After Coleman’s death, Buchanan never courted another woman or seemed to show any emotional or physical interest; a rumor circulated of an affair with President James K. Polk’s widow, Sarah Childress Polk, but it had no basis. It has been suggested that Anne’s death in fact served to deflect awkward questions about his sexuality and bachelorhood. While Buchanan may have been asexual or celibate, there are many indicators that suggest he was homosexual. The argument has been put forward by Shelley Ross, biographer Jean Baker, sociologist James W. Loewen, Robert P. Watson, and historian John Howard.

    PURPOSE OF REPORT
    This report describes in scientific terms the technological details of basic research and development program thrusts in Israel and selected European allied nations with possible applications to U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) programs, both tactical and strategic. The report is organized to provide a comprehensive critical assessment of technologies relevant to the new North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) initiatives, Nunn Amendment programs and Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) Organization (SDIO) programs.

    The report avoids an analysis of policy issues and problems arlsmg from technology transfer, security and SDI allied participation. It concentrates instead only on technology facets of allied programs and seeks to provide a benchmark against similar kinds of technology already in development in U.S. industry and government laboratories.

    Technology assessments covered in this report are based on visits by a team of physicists and engineers to the research laboratories, production plants, and test facilities of 52 companies. The report encompasses data from technology assessments based on a schedule of 28 days available for the survey. This schedule was structured to provide a technological overview and to obtain data to enable identification of efforts that should be further investigated in detail for support by joint U.S.-Allied developmental programs.

    This report highlights technologies that could materially aid the DOD in drawing together the alliance in joint programs to provide synergism from technologies on both sides of the Atlantic.

    B. SCOPE
    Assessment and analyses in the technology report are divided into the two tasks that are identified in the modified contract for this study. The first task calls for identification and assessments of those technologies in Israel that are r~levant to the spectrum of SDIO
    programs, with possible spinoffs of those technologies for tactical developments.

    A second task in the study is to assess and analyze the technological contributions that each of six nations—West Germany, France, The United Kingdom, Italy, The Netherlands and Denmark—eould make in joint research and development programs in concert with NATO efforts. Visits to these latter two countries were not part of the study contract; however, several visits were made to investigate unique “targets of opportunity.”

    The team visits in each of the nations involved were structured to interface with engineers and scientists, not marketing or management personnel. Emphasis also was placed
    on visits to industry, with some laboratory exploration.
    Visits to national laboratories were generally as a” result of personal contacts by team members with laboratory physicists. Such visits were usually scheduled after working hours and on weekends.

    In assessing the allied technologies, the team generally oriented its inquiries along four areas of investigation:
    o Surveillance. radar, and command, control and communications
    o Armor/Anti-armor technology
    o Directed energy weapons
    o Sensor technology.

    Developmental efforts were discovered in most of the nations that related directly to technologies, products, architectures, integration, operations and joint programs for theater ballistic and cruise missile defense, air defense programs and conventional defense initiatives.

    Prior to 1938 Einstein did not think an atomic bomb was possible. He was using protons to split the nucleus and it didn’t work. The Germans figured out that neutrons could be used to split the nucleus and this moved them way ahead in the development.

    Einstein is quoted as saying that the chances of splitting the atom were similar to “shooting a bird flying at night in a country with very few birds!”

    To make certain the U.S. was aware of the danger, in July 1939, a few months before the beginning of World War II in Europe, Szilárd and Wigner visited Einstein to explain the possibility of atomic bombs, which Einstein, a pacifist, said he had never considered.

    He was asked to lend his support by writing a letter, with Szilárd, to President Roosevelt, recommending the U.S. pay attention and engage in its own nuclear weapons research. One of those feared secret German nuclear facilities, apparently the largest of the Third Reich, covering 75 acres in an underground complex, was discovered in Austria in December 2014.

    The letter is believed to be “arguably the key stimulus for the U.S. adoption of serious investigations into nuclear weapons on the eve of the U.S. entry into World War II”.

    In addition to the letter, Einstein used his connections with the Belgian Royal Family and the Belgian queen mother to get access with a personal envoy to the White House’s Oval Office.

    President Roosevelt could not take the risk of allowing Hitler to possess atomic bombs first. As a result of Einstein’s letter and his meetings with Roosevelt, the U.S. entered the “race” to develop the bomb, drawing on its “immense material, financial, and scientific resources” to initiate the Manhattan Project. It became the only country to successfully develop an atomic bomb during World War II.

    The thread is not pointless as the father belongs to and is a leader in a mosque that promotes jihad and has been raided in the past. Several of their members have been arrested for trying to kill marines at Quantico and they have had guest speakers who are in ISIS!!!

    The father is trying to get sympathy for Islam claiming this was a crime against Islam.

    Carolina mosque attended by terror suspects, requires media sign contract to ask questions

    Posted on September 23, 2009

    The Raleigh, North Carolina mosque whose imam was preaching jihad in the 90’s, and was attended by almost all of the eight Muslims suspected of plotting jihad in North Carolina, is making it harder for the media to access it.

    That won’t raise any suspicions or make the general public leery now will it?

    The story comes from the News & Observer. The same paper that published a glowing report on Khalilah Sabra, then a Muslim up and comer being groomed by a Muslim state senator named Larry Shaw, now director of the Muslim American Society’s (MAS) Raleigh organization and spokesperson for the N.C. jihad ringleader. N&O reported Sabra being recruited to Pakistan by Osama bin Laden’s mentor – the ideological founder of al Qaeda Abdullah Azzam – but then deleted that damning section of their report, as well as Sabra’s admission of past support for armed resistance, after we highlighted those facts.

    From Wrong time to clam up | News & Observer:
    …following the indictment of eight Triangle men on terrorism charges, the area’s most prominent mosque, the Islamic Association of Raleigh, is limiting access.

    Did those eight Triangle men have anything in common?

    To report from the mosque property in West Raleigh, a journalist now must sign a document with six mandates, including: “The Media may not interview any individual on the premises of the Islamic Center of Raleigh or at any other IAR event, except for the authorized IAR spokesperson or any other designated individual as authorized by the IAR leadership.” We mentioned the rules in an Aug. 16 article.

    Cut & Paste:

    RALEIGH, N.C. — One of the men involved in a Johnston County terrorist cell that authorities said plotted attacks on a Marine base in Virginia and foreign targets tried to have witnesses in his trial last fall killed.

    Here‘s the mention from the Marine Corps Times.

    NEW BERN, N.C. — Three members of a home-grown terror ring who conspired to attack Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., and foreign targets were sentenced Friday to between 15 and 45 years in federal prison. Nevine Aly Elshiekh, who was arrested in 2012 for plotting to behead our Marines, was a teacher at a religious school at the Islamic Association of Raleigh

    Rather than deal with the homegrown threat the mosque’s members by and large defended the would be Marine-killing terrorists.

    Hysen Sherifi and others arrested in the terrorism conspiracy were members of the Islamic Association of Raleigh, the largest Muslim congregation in the Triangle. Several members of the mosque also routinely made the 4-hour round trip for the trial in New Bern to support the accused, who they described as innocent men being railroaded by overzealous federal authorities. (Associated Press)

    Mohammed Abu Salha, who serves in the leadership of that mosque according to this magazine, didn’t distance himself from that hateful mosque.

    Here is a cut & paste of a sermon by the imam where the father of the two slain daughters is a leader. (The Islamic Association of Raleigh NC)

    (Imam Mohamed Baianonie at the Islamic Center of Raleigh, NC, delivered this Friday speech on December 9, 1994)

    We mentioned last Friday that Jihad means to struggle to the utmost of one’s ability in order to strive to please Allah (S.W.T.), and to uphold His word. A person can make jihad using good words, spending his wealth for the sake of Allah (S.W.T.), and by giving his life for the sake of Allah. A person may practice one or more of these different types of jihad depending on a person’s situation and conditions.

    Today, we will discuss the Jihad for the sake of Allah’s cause using force. This kind of Jihad is against anyone who stands as an obstacle in the way of Da’wah . The obstacle can be from someone or a government who prevents Muslims from delivering the message of Islam, or it could be the one who prevents people from choosing Islam, or the one who persecutes any one who chooses Islam. These are the ONLY reasons that Islam allows one to use force. Keep in mind however; there are rules to how one should apply this force.

    When we remove these obstacles from society, then the people will have the freedom to choose and practice any religion of their choice without fear. Allah has given the people the freedom to choose the faith they want without any compulsion. If we are granted this freedom in any society, then there is no valid reason to fight. But, if this freedom is restricted, then we should only fight the oppressors who restrict this freedom—not all the non-Muslims.

    This type of jihad that allows for fighting was prescribed by Allah (S.W.T.) to allow the Muslims to deliver the message of Islam to all people.

    And what He (S.W.T) also said in surat Al-Anfal, (Verse 39), what can be translated as , “And fight them until there is no more fitnah and the religion will be for Allah alone…”
    This type of forceful jihad descended in three different stages:

    • The first stage:
    This stage gave Muslims only the permission (not an obligation) to fight only the aggressors and those who cause aggression.

    • The second stage:
    In the second stage, Allah orders the Muslims to fight, unlike the first stage where He only gives them permission. Also, Allah limited fighting against those who attacked first, and he ordered them never to start a fight against anyone.

    • 3 – The last stage:
    The final stage calls for fighting against any obstacle that blocks someone from conveying the word of Allah (S.W.T).
    This Jihad is obligatory till the Day of Judgment and it is the highest honor of Islam. Allah (S.W.T) said in surat Al-Baqarah, (Verse 216), what can be translated as, “Fighting is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and you may like a thing which is bad for you. And Allah knows but you do not know.”

    When is Jihad obligatory upon Muslims?

    It is obligatory upon Muslims in one of three following cases:
    • If the fighter is present on the battlefield, then he must fight. Allah (S.W.T) said in surat Al-Anfal, (Verse 15), what can be translated as, “O you who believe! When you meet those who disbelieve, in a battle-field, never turn your backs to them….” The prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) warned Muslims of withdrawing while being attacked and he considered it one of the major sins.

    • When an enemy takes over a Muslim land, then every Muslim of that region must fight. In this case there is no requirement of permission from the Khalifah because it is self-defense, which is legitimate fighting. However, we will discuss this topic at a later time.

    • If the Khalifah orders a Muslim to fight, then he must fight. Imams Bukhari and Muslim reported that the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said: “…So if you are summoned to fight, go forth.”

    Who must fight?

    Every healthy adult Muslim male with a sound mind must fight; also, he should have enough money to spend on himself, and his family while he is away.

    The regulations of fighting in jihad:

    Muslims must fight only those who are fighting them. Islam prohibits killing women, the children, the sick, the elderly, and the monks. Also, Islam prohibits killing animals, destroying plants and trees. Islam also prohibits infesting and poisoning waters and springs, destroying homes and civilian establishments. All these are supported by many sayings of the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.).

    We should now have a clearer understanding of jihad in Islam. We should remember that there is no person living today who can call for this fighting jihad unless there is an Islamic state and the khalifah is the only one who has the authority to call for it.

    North Carolina imam was preaching jihad in the 90’s

    Posted on September 3, 2009 by creeping

    The month of jihad (Ramadan) continues, and in that spirit, here is another Muslim in America preaching the virtues of jihad.

    Imam Mohamed Baianonie of the newly expanded Islamic Association of Raleigh knows jihad.

    In 1994, Baianonie gave several speeches on jihad as imam at the then-named Islamic Center of Raleigh (N.C.).

    Recently, seven Raleigh, North Carolina men were arrested on terrorism charges and an arrest warrant is outstanding for an eighth suspect – also from North Carolina. Seven of those men attended Baianonie’s Islamic Association of Raleigh mosque.

    In addition, Raleigh’s Muslim American Society (MAS) director, Khalilah Sabra, the spokesperson for the suspected jihadi ringleader, also has a strong connection to jihad. She was recruited to Pakistan by Abdullah Azzam a.k.a. the “godfather of jihad”. As we presented here, Azzam preached the virtues of jihad including “offensive jihad” and was the ideological founder of al Qaeda and a mentor to Osama bin Laden.

    I demonstrate many of these concepts he is promoting in front of academic groups. It freaks them out. I show that thoughts are physical objects. All matter exists in consciousness. What is true at one level of consciousness is not necessarily true at other levels. Memories are not stored in the brain (I read people’s stored memories all the way back to conception just by walking up to them.) Your consciousness manifests the physical body, not the other way around. (Nothing can destroy the soul or spirit, not even an atomic bomb exploded on a person’s head) Telepathy is a simple concept once you raise to higher levels of consciousness. (It’s how Jesus knew the thoughts of everyone around Him.) These things become your perceptual reality when you grow spiritually.

    I’ve had people start shaking as what they were seeing with their eyes in my demonstrations created a paradigm shift that they were not ready for. I do not dispute science, just take it to a higher level of understanding.

    I even explain the science supporting the demonstrations. I’ve noticed for example that higher levels of consciousness exhibit the same characteristics that the Danish atomic theorist Neals Bohr discovered in electrons when they go from higher orbitals to lower levels, they give off light! It’s the reason that the Holy Spirit is seen as Light and that God is often referred to as Light in the scriptures.

    Two souls in a relationship merge very similar to the way covalent bonds merge elements. Growing spiritually for a single individual is similar to an ionic bond. These are simple observations I have made since being able to perceive consciousness as physical. It’s easy to see the thought forms in the soul or spirit that manifest illness. To see and feel guilt from someone who violates their purity of soul. Everyone will soon be able to do these things as we are entering a period of global warming. Global warming that is being caused by the increased presence of the Holy Spirit. It’s the reason Peter said what he did in Acts 2 when he quoted the prophet Joel. It’s happening and it’s wonderful.

    The earth would appear flat until you perceive it from a higher perspective of understanding. The same is true for everything in religion, psychology and medicine. What something appears to be from one level is not necessarily true from a higher level of understanding.

    Science has missed one great variable that opens doors they never imagined. Even Einstein touched on it but failed to utilize it in his equations.

    The variable that scientists missed is the operational frequency of consciousness which is a key factor in perception, speed of processing and the quantity of data the mind can hold in current operations at any one point in time. As you raise your operational consciousness, other people’s thoughts become physical objects to you. That in a nutshell is the secret to understanding all religions.

    I’ve done a demonstration many times where I will have a person imagine an object many feet from their body and then close their eyes. I will push the imaginary object with my hand and their physical body will move in the same direction, often knocking them off their feet even though they are many feet away from me. Once you understand thought storage and the interaction between the physical body and the soul or spirit where they are actually located, this stuff is all child’s play. It explains personality development, mental illness, learning disabilities in children, ........

    This is why Einstein said “A problem is not solved at the level of consciousness at which it was created.

    For example, time is not just a function of the speed of light. Time is a function of the operational frequency of consciousness divided by the speed of light. To the extent that we cleanse our soul or spirit thus decreasing its mass and increase it’s operational frequency to approach or surpass the speed of light, one immediately has the ability of prophesy.

    It’s why Jesus taught what He did. The same is true of Buddha, Krishna and all the other “enlightened” teachers.

    On Feb. 2, the influential Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the majlis foreign affairs and security committee, declared that the account with Israel over the Quneitra attack was still open and more “operations” were coming.

    And they did on Feb. 8 from an unexpected direction – the south. Elements of the Syrian army’s Ninth Division and 121st Brigade armed with 50 T-72 tanks led a sweeping Iranian-Hizballah offensive dubbed “Operation Ali Allah Dadi for Quneitra Martyrs.” With them were 4,000 Shiite fighters imported by Iran for the battle and several hundred Hizballah gunmen – all under the command of Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers.

    The operation started out with an Iranian-led force advancing on the southern Syrian town of Deraa – part of which is held by Syrian rebels - and heading for the junction of the Syrian-Jordanian and Israeli borders.

    Within any religion you have various groups representing the stages of the spiritual development process.

    You have the legalists... not fundamentalists as they often lose sight of the fundamental principles such as Love.

    You have the self worshipers who have their religion as part of their individual ego identity.

    You have those who have transcended self. They have no need to go to worship services but they talk with God daily. They can wear striped pants with plaid shirts and care less what other people think as their identity is in their relationship with God. Often these people would be considered mystics if they cared enough to share their increased spiritual abilities with others.

    Every religion has people in all three groups...

    The $3,000 reporting requirement is an internal requirement so that a financial institution is required to look for multiple $3,000 deposits in the same day that cumulatively are more than $10,000 and are required to be reported.

    The other requirement is just “If the teller views the transaction as “suspicious,” it is reportable.

    I used to audit banks!

    I had a client’s daughter get an IRS audit by a field agent when she worked at McDonald’s and made $8,000 per year. The audit was triggered when she took out a bank loan, co-signed by her father, to purchase a car. She took the check for over $10,000 and cashed it to go looking for a used car.

    She paid for the car (at a large car dealership) in cash. The bank had to complete the form when the deposit was made. That triggered her audit.
