The Bible, UFOs, ET and the Ancients Part 3

Post by ScaRZ on Mon Jul 09, 2012 8:05 am

First topic message reminder :

Hello everyone, I've decided to give Part 3 a go if Bren doesn't care. I just hope OM can attract some of the old members as well as some new members.

The first thing I want to post in the Part 3 Thread are some links of the late David Flynn's work. David's work has been some of my favorite for many years. I never knew David personally but was a member at a couple of his forums. I got interested in his work back a long time ago after visiting his Watcher Web Site.

David's twin brother Mark did drop by OMF a few years back and did post a thank you post in The Bible,UFOs,ET and the Ancients Thread for posting some of David's work....."I believe it was one of David's videos."

David died This year and I really believe he left behind a great deal of material that is for us today and on into the future. I just hope one day I will come to the point of understanding in depth a great amount of his work.

This is a series at http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/ and I will continue to post the parts as they come out. I will only post a snippet of each part, so be sure and click on the links for the full articles.


Part 1 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-one.htm

Remembering David Flynn

A new series on the research and findings of a modern Christian genius

by Thomas Horn


"This is the first entry into a series on the works and discoveries of David Eric Flynn, a modern Christian genius who died at the age of 49 this past January 22, 2012 after a short battle with cancer. For nearly two decades David published original and groundbreaking research on his renowned Watchers Website."

--------

Part 2 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-two.htm


A Note from Steven Quayle


"David Flynn, like Isaac Newton before him, was a “GIANT” in the understanding of the God of Creations’ infinite majesty, power, and presence throughout the universe displayed. Every generation has its heaven-sent “Time-Keepers” to remind the world that we all have an appointed time and season of revelation and purpose to all that we see around us. It is as if the Almighty God holds specific time locks to His revelations and specific messengers tasked with bringing it forth."

--------

Part 3 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-three.htm

Notes from Mark Flynn


"One of our high school history teachers brought in a retired Air Force officer who gave a talk about incidents that occurred in 1967 and 1975 where entire “flights” of Minuteman ICBMs were simultaneously and inexplicably shut down immediately after UFOs were sighted in the vicinity of Malmstrom Air force base."

"In addition to the stories that we heard about the goings on around Great Falls, our dad told us a story that he had heard from Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr. while they happened to be working at the same hospital. When Jesse was a kid, his dad came home very late one night and woke everybody up to show them some parts that he had gathered from the site of a crashed spaceship."

"Dad related the story to us in a very matter-of-fact style. Nothing suggested that Jesse’s account might have been an exaggeration or just a story. It was just two colleagues, Dr. Flynn and Dr. Marcel, having a conversation."

--------

Part 4 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-four.htm

From the works of David Flynn

"The Jewish sages explained that Cain built the first city and therefore was the founder of civilization. Cain named this city Enoch after his first son (Genesis 4:16–17). Also according to the sages, the names of Enoch’s grandson and great grandson, Mehujael and Methusael (man smitten by Elohim and man who is of Elohim) shows that for a time the knowledge of Elohim, the name of God recorded in Genesis, was preserved, but soon disappeared. Their reasoning was that the lineage of Cain had died in the flood. However, the human race survived through Noah and his family descended from Seth, Adam’s third son. The Mystics focused on the two Enochs that lived before the great deluge of Noah. The first, the son of Cain, had transferred the sacred knowledge from Eden into the first civilization that was later destroyed due to its corruption and evil. The second Enoch, from the line of Seth, preserved the pure knowledge apart from this corruption. This body of knowledge had been incorporated in ancient structures geometrically. Its decipherment needed a key thought to exist in a universal language that was lost. Ironically, the event that caused its loss corresponded with the development of writing and the birth of civilization. Although biblical chronology renders it impossible for Noah to have met Enoch from the line of Seth, he would have known Methuselah, Enoch’s son. Methuselah lived for 967 years. There was a belief among biblical scholars that Noah would have possessed the learning of Enoch, particularly because it had been recorded in writing."

--------

Part 5 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-five.htm

From the works of David Flynn


"Newton devoted his entire life in the quest of a pure science and theology. If he had discovered the prisca sapientia, and further evidence will show that he did, he would not have resorted to leaving such a discovery in the hands of the unworthy. It is likely a unifying theory of the laws of creation with the laws of God would be best suited to a code. This form of writing and encryption, in Newton’s reasoning, was the modality in which the Bible itself had been written. As God revealed the Law of Moses to men with supernatural power, and its words revered and protected, a unifying law of creation should be presented in like manner. Similarly, the dispensation to men of such a powerful truth would only take place with the full intent and providence of God; Newton , however, would not write of its discovery openly. He would seal it within his papers exploring the laws and the creation of God. These vast works, ranging from chronology, natural philosophy, and theology suggested its presence, visible only to those given the eyes to see."

--------

Part 6 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-six.htm

From the works of David Flynn

"For Newton , every theoretical revelation that he achieved stood as verification of Daniel’s prophecy as reads in Dan12:4: “Even to the time of the end…knowledge shall be increased.” Newton viewed the book of Daniel as a missive extending through time to him, addressed to his intellect, a mind divinely inspired to value and solve its riddles."

--------

Part 7 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-seven.htm

From the works of David Flynn

"For as the few and obscure Prophecies concerning Christ’s first coming were for setting up the Christian religion, many and clear Prophecies concerning the things to be done at Christ’s second coming are not only for predicting, but also for effecting a recovery and re-establishment of the long-lost truth." —Issac Newton, Observations upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John

--------

Part 8 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-eight.htm

From the works of David Flynn

"Many scholars—even before Newton—believed that the geometry of the future temple of Jerusalem and the “heavenly city of Jerusalem” of Revelation possessed some key to the unfolding of prophecy itself. God as a “divine geometer” pervaded early Christian thought. This was the belief that both the natural creation and architecture of the temple were from the same designer. The temple was, then, a microcosm of the universe in which God’s structure of time was represented both symbolically and geometrically. The Bible records that the Israelites constructed of two temples, the first built by Solomon and the second by Zerubbabel. In Revelation, Daniel and John mention a third future temple existing at the second coming of Christ. Some theologians believe that Ezekiel described this third temple in chapter 40 through the end of his book. Still others contend that Ezekiel’s temple is in fact a fourth temple that will be built after the great cataclysms described in Revelation. However, theologians are in agreement that Ezekiel’s temple is designated for the 1,000 years of peace after the return of Christ, termed the “millennium” in Christianity."

--------

Part 9 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-nine.htm

From the works of David Flynn

"The prisca sapienta correlation between time and distance in the prophecy of the book of Daniel should also relate to the Revelation of John. Newton viewed the book of Revelation in the New Testament as a mirror of Daniel’s prophecies in the Old Testament. Revelation recapitulated the theme of Babylon’s fall and focused on the temple as a unifying point of prophetic dimension, a fact that Newton closely detailed in Observations. Both Daniel and John addressed the theme of time of the end and the return of Christ:"

"The Apocalypse of John is written in the same style and language with the Prophecies of Daniel, and hath the same relation to them which they have to one another, so that all of them together make but one complete Prophecy; and in like manner it consists of two parts, an introductory Prophecy, and an interpretation thereof."

--------

Part 10 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-ten.htm

From the works of David Flynn

"The most prominent feature of the Ark of the Covenant, as well every “ark” found in the Bible, is its movement over the Earth from one point to another under the navigation of God."

"An Ark carried Moses along the Nile to the daughter of Pharaoh. The Ark of Noah navigated the deluge to the dry summit of Mount Ararat . The Ark of the Covenant traveled before the tribes of the Exodus to the Promised Land. All three contained “seeds” for the future of mankind designed for planting at their destination. All carried or were followed by a portion of humanity under God’s protection, leading to a realm of life and promise out of a land of destruction and death."

"The movement from one point to another across the earth necessarily produces an arc, as the Earth itself is a sphere. Speed is measured by the length of time it takes to travel over a set distance. These concepts are most commonly defined by the physics of Newton’s Calculus, which determines instantaneous rates of change, and may be used to find the velocity (rate of change of distance with respect to time) of an object moving through space or the slope of a curve at any given point. Calculus is necessary for finding arc length and measuring the area of a region bounded by a curve."

--------

Part 11 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-eleven.htm

From the works of David Flynn


"In the Gregorian calendar, AD is an abbreviation of the Latin Anno Domini, meaning “in the year of our Lord.” Apart from the birth of Christ, on which the modern calendar is based, his resurrection is the most important event in Christianity. Most chronologists assign the age of Christ’s death and resurrection to 33 years. Newton also agreed with this chronology and listed the passion of Jesus as having occurred no later than AD 34 in chapter 11 of Observations upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John."

--------

Part 12 http://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/flynn-twelve.htm

From the works of David Flynn


"When Constantine converted pagan Rome to Catholicism, he superimposed Christian motifs over pre-existing sun worship cults. He himself worshipped the god Sol Invictus (the invincible sun) until his death. Constantine declared dies Solis, “Sun-day,” as the official day of rest for the empire on March 7, AD 321, minted coins bearing Helios crowned with the spiked rays, and established Christ’s nativity on the pagan date of the birth of the sun, December 25."

Maybe two of the extensive list were related to spying. Thanks for trying, though.

Do you have an opinion Nib - beyond questioning the intent of the question?

Does one require a destination when they walk out the door?
Does a question have to have an end purpose?  
Questions are asked when we are naturally without answers and seek better understanding.

Can you mentally put your 'OWN' personal belief or feelings into thought here, for us, related to the question?

Do you feel men of God and or those that profess to be of the Lord - are sanctioned to pry into the private lives of anyone they chose - For whatever reason they deem appropriate?

I realize you enjoy your one liners, and that is fine, but is there more in you than that? Do you have a voice deeper than one liners? I'm certain Scarz does not need someone to pat him on the back or to agree with him when he 'lays it out'. Why don't you take some time to lay out your feelings and soul - like the many others here. You might actually find it - educational.

In defense of you own - silence - I did sit for years before speaking openly. So, do understand, I 'understand' if you can't illuminate us further.

Bard wrote:Just curious if Jesus condoned, spoke about, or discussed spies.

How would he view them?

I don't remember Jesus Christ using anyone to spy or teaching a topic on spying.

We know in scripture that some spies were used by men of God for reasons I believe accomplished God's will. Many times we don't understand the full picture but God uses people to reach certain goals. Getting someone to turn to God is number one on the list I believe.

Here below is a very good read about why I said what I did.

---------------------------------------------

http://www.enduringword.com/commentaries/0602.htm



Joshua 2 - The Salvation of Rahab



A. Spies sent to the city of Jericho.

1. (1a) Joshua sends forth spies.

Now Joshua the son of Nun sent out two men from Acacia Grove to spy secretly, saying, “Go, view the land, especially Jericho.”

a. Remember that all this takes place during the three days Joshua has commanded the nation to wait on the banks of the Jordan (Joshua 1:11). God has a special purpose for these three days.

b. Joshua the son of Nun sent out two men from Acacia Grove to spy secretly: This kind of careful preparation shows faithfulness, not a lack of faith. God’s promises of success to us should never lull us into inaction. They should spur us on to a step out in godly activity.

i. We aren’t told who the two spies are, but Jewish tradition - speculation, really - says they were faithful Caleb and the High Priest Eliezer.

c. To spy secretly: Joshua also shows wisdom by sending them secretly. The last spies that went out publicly turned out badly for Israel, when a majority of the spies came back with a discouraging report (Numbers 13).

d. Go, view the land, especially Jericho: God has greater things in mind for this spy mission; it will fail as a mission of military reconnaissance, but it will succeed in God’s purpose.

2. (1b) The spies at Rahab’s house.

So they went, and came to the house of a harlot named Rahab, and lodged there.

a. Came to the house of a harlot named Rahab: Through the history of Christianity, it has embarrassed some Bible interpreters that these two spies went to the house of a prostitute. Some have tried to say that Rahab was simply an “innkeeper,” but the language is clear enough. She was a harlot.

i. In the second century Origen wrote: “As the first Joshua sent his spies before him and they were received into the harlot’s house, so the second Joshua sent his forerunners, whom the publicans and harlots gladly received”.

ii. It is great when sinners receive Jesus; not those who deny their sinfulness or don’t know what they are capable of apart from Jesus - the gospel is for those who know they are sinners.

b. And lodged there: Why did they go to the harlot’s house? Though it was an awkward place, it must be admitted that it was a perfect place to hide out and remain anonymous, and this was necessary because the city was on strict guard.

i. There isn’t even the hint of immorality with Rahab. Anyone who assumes that there was immoral conduct forces their own bias on the text.

3. (2-7) Rahab hides and protects the spies.

And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, “Behold, men have come here tonight from the children of Israel to search out the country.” So the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, “Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the country.” Then the woman took the two men and hid them. So she said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. And it happened as the gate was being shut, when it was dark, that the men went out. Where the men went I do not know; pursue them quickly, for you may overtake them.” (But she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order on the roof.) Then the men pursued them by the road to the Jordan, to the fords. And as soon as those who pursued them had gone out, they shut the gate.

a. Then the woman took the two men and hid them: In the culture of that day, there was a strong tradition of hospitality. If someone was a guest in your house, you had a strong duty to protect them and care for them. Even considering this, Rahab went much further than the respect of cultural traditions regarding hospitality. She put her own life on the line for these men.

b. Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from: The Bible simply reports Rahab’s lie; it does not praise it or excuse it. Perhaps if she had beforehand determined in her heart to not lie in obedience to God, He would have made a way for her to preserve the life of the spies without lying.

c. Rahab’s lie is not justified, but it does show courage. Consider that she was a pagan sinner in a city and culture wholly given over to the worship of false gods and immorality, with no previous contact with the word of God or the things of God. What is your excuse?

B. Salvation for Rahab.

1. (8-14) Rahab’s confession of faith.

Now before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof, and said to the men: “I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath. Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by the LORD, since I have shown you kindness, that you also will show kindness to my father’s house, and give me a true token, and spare my father, my mother, my brothers, my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.” So the men answered her, “Our lives for yours, if none of you tell this business of ours. And it shall be, when the LORD has given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with you.”

a. I know that the LORD has given you the land: This surprising outburst of faith shows how God had a plan in bringing Rahab and the spies together. It is the same kind of thing we see when God supernaturally brings us to people who are believers or open to the gospel.

b. Rahab’s declaration He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath is proof of her faith. It is not strong faith and it is not perfect faith, but her faith is commendable nonetheless (Hebrews 11:31 and James 2:25).

i. We may be appalled at the fact that Rahab was a prostitute, or that she was a liar. But the fact is that she was not saved by her works, but by her faith. She knew who God was, she knew who she was, and she trusted God for her very life.

c. That you also will show kindness to my father’s house: Rahab’s desire to see her family saved, and the length she goes to in order to save their lives shows that her love should be noticed, as well as her faith.

d. Swear to me by the LORD: This shows that Rahab longed for assurance by asked for an oath. She wanted to leave her sinful life and culture and come with God’s people.

2. (15-21) The means of Rahab’s salvation: the scarlet cord.

Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall; she dwelt on the wall. And she said to them, “Get to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you. Hide there three days, until the pursuers have returned. Afterward you may go your way.” So the men said to her: “We will be blameless of this oath of yours which you have made us swear, unless, when we come into the land, you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, your mother, your brothers, and all your father’s household to your own home. So it shall be that whoever goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his own head, and we will be guiltless. And whoever is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him. And if you tell this business of ours, then we will be free from your oath which you made us swear.” Then she said, “According to your words, so be it.” And she sent them away, and they departed. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window.

a. Bind this scarlet cord in the window: This was the signal to the army of Israel that the people in this home were to be spared. Despite Rahab’s desire, despite her faith, despite the promises of these spies, she would have perished unless she put her trust in a blood red cord cast down from her window. Without the scarlet cord, she could not have been saved.

i. As early as the first century, commentators such as Clement of Rome, Justin Martyr, Ireneaus, Origen and more saw this scarlet cord as a symbol of the blood of Jesus.

b. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window: Rahab immediately put her faith into both the identification and safety of the scarlet cord. She also trusted in the ones who made the promise about the scarlet cord (according to your words, so be it).

i. Joshua would be a savior for Rahab, but a judge of the rest of Jericho. In the same way Jesus is a savior for those who trust Him, but a judge for those who reject Him.

c. Rahab’s destiny was to marry one of the princes of Judah and be found in the lineage of King and David and Jesus Himself.

3. (22-24) Mission accomplished.

They departed and went to the mountain, and stayed there three days until the pursuers returned. The pursuers sought them all along the way, but did not find them. So the two men returned, descended from the mountain, and crossed over; and they came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all that had befallen them. And they said to Joshua, “Truly the LORD has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are fainthearted because of us.”

a. And told him all that had befallen them: Considering how God will have them conquer the city of Jericho, how did the information from these spies help in the battle for Jericho? Jericho was one of the strongest and most heavily fortified cities of Canaan; if Israel could conquer it, the whole land would be before them - but how did this reconnaissance help them with the eventual battle? It didn’t help them at all!

b. Truly the LORD has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are fainthearted because of us: The reconnaissance mission didn’t help with military strategy, but it did help in encouraging the faith of these spies and the whole nation. This was far more important than a good battle plan.

i. There was another purpose at work in sending the spies: to save Rahab. In this, we see the extent God goes to in bringing one woman and her father’s house to salvation - Someone seemingly “impossible” to save.

ii. You may know some that seem “impossible” to save, but God’s hand is not short to save people like Rahab, and He can work in amazing ways to bring salvation.

This wasn't directed at me but I will give my opinion on the question.

I would say most people or nations that spy aren't of God or even profess to be of The Lord.

This world we live in isn't sugar and spice and everything nice. Sometimes spying is needed, but like anything else it can and is misused.

Instead of a beast that is kept under control,it can rather become a beast that controls.

I think Jake believes it's much too time cosuming and would bear little if any fruit at this forum for now. At least that is how I read it.

Most of the readership are silent passengers, but you'd be really surprised at some of the distinct names who frequent our house and relish the various perspectives as they intertwine and interact.

I just met another this early AM...really early AM, lol via email.  My hat tip to him.

Cy

Edit to Add:

Wrt what ScaRZ posted about the woman in the biblical story just recently...

There are a couple of things which might add some dimension...the story of the woman mentions that later she was found in the geneologies of David, Jesus, et al.

Well there is something very Celtic seeming in the first part of the story and the insinuation that God intended her to become part of the story of his people, and that later she was found in t he geneologies.

In Celtic tradition, major alterations (and this may or may not apply as a more universal type characteristic of ancient cultures) in any human society, i.e. one people taking the helm for another group which absorbs the former or conquers them, is generally done following a form rite of passage...you see this in British Celtic story narratives where a special type of Queen - a queen of the soul of the land & its people...a hidden queen, not officially or publicly recognized must first give her consent or sanction to an event or alteration in the human narrative such as for a new King taking control of a people or tribe...the traditional pagan narrative being that the King-to-Be goes off into the wild or is guided by a wise man to meet with this Queen who evaluates the prospective leader.  If she approves she makes a formal act or sacrifice, i.e. sexual relations or a profound gift of a sacred object or fulfillment of Geis, sealing the deal and sanctioning that leader to his new state of power.  The hidden Queen wields the power of the Earth (combined collective consciousness of the biosphere) and without her sanction the alteration in the human experience or ascension to leadership cannot occur.

This is a part of the narrative at least figuratively in that story which I noticed because it is a theme I am accustomed to seeing.  Further depth on story narratives involving stories themselves (related to our current paradigm) and to the creation and realism of Heroes can be found in the following interview with a very curious writer, that I have found some interesting connections in (which may be essentially nothing, but they ring a certain kind of bell - Patrick please take note of this wrt our convo in pm today about the author and his works)

http://www.sfsite.com/10a/mc209.htm

For all others read down through the part about stories and heroes in relation to characters Hal and Hunter, where interesting correlation, via abstract symbolic facets and narratives, across our current paradigm converge in a set of deep points about humanity.

It is just a book, but....he's a Chadbourne - although not from Piscataqua, and if it were not for the same curious slant to his eyes I have, and the fact he's using mythical narratives involving the Dannan's that caused him to be brought to my attention, I might have chuckled and not looked closer.  And then I would never have noticed a good many things in his writings.  Lol, and that's before even finishing reading the books!

Oh well, nothing to see here, carry on.

"One liners"?    I don't have time to deal with this ridiculous post (the entire thing) tonight.

Let's be clear about one thing for now- when I went on my sabbatical some time ago from this place you for whatever reason fully encouraged me to not be here.   I didn't really understand it but more importantly did not really care what you said to me in PM.  

Here is the thing to get straight-  I only come here to see what ScaRZ is interested in.   I don't come here for your non stop ? mark ? mark ? mark.




I'll address your post this weekend.. .

I anxiously await your input.  Please illustrate why I led to you to consider your vacation also, if it is not too much hassle. I'd appreciate your analysis.

I would say most people or nations that spy aren't of God or even profess to be of The Lord.

This world we live in isn't sugar and spice and everything nice. Sometimes spying is needed, but like anything else it can and is misused.

Instead of a beast that is kept under control,it can rather become a beast that controls.

Thanks for your input, Scarz.
Appreciated.

I really enjoy you coming here "Nib" and wish more people would take part. If there's anything you have an interest in please feel free to lay it out.

"Bard" doesn't mind asking questions and that's fine with me. I may not always have the answers he is looking for but I do the best I can. I never answer questions attempting to please he or anyone else. I don't have all the answers but most of the time I will at least give my opinions.

Many times he helps open up a topic that I find needs to be talked about. Sometimes good things can grow from soil thought of as nothing but bleak and lifeless.

I'm going to share again a dream I had a few years ago. I really don't know why it's been on my mind but I feel I need to post it once again.

--------------------------------------------------------

I was in an area that reminded me of a backroom of a large building. There was a large table in front of me and a little off to the right was a very large sink. A very beautiful lady with long black hair was standing in front of the sink and had something small in her hand.

I watched as she took what appeared to be a type of pill, placing it in her mouth and swallowing it. She then motioned for me to come over close to her. As I walked up next to her she ask me if I would please comfort her because she was about to get very sick.

Before I moved another inch she began to tremble and turned so pale it frightened me to the very core of my soul. She then hung her head over the sink and that's when I began to try and comfort her. I pulled her hair behind her head and gently stroked her head. She was so very sick and kept barfing up in the sink until the sickness finally past.

As soon as she pulled herself upright I could see she was glowing with happiness and appeared to have a great light around her.

She then reached in a pocket of her pants, pulled out another pill and ask me to take it. She held the pill out very close where I could see it.

The pill was in the shape of an hourglass and within the pill you could see the sand. When she flipped the pill over the sand would run as that through an hourglass.

She then told me that the pill would make me very sick after I took it but only a short time would pass and then great joy,comfort,peace,and love would follow.

Then for the very first time in the dream another lady appeared and told me I could handle taking the pill.

I remember feeling a fear of the sickness but desired what was to follow.

My eyes then opened from the dream.


*************************

I believe the dream was all about life in this world,death, and one day eteral life. The hourglass pill was the sands of life running out as time ticks away and leads to death in this life. In this world life will bring with it tribulation,heartache,sickness and death but after this fleshly life will come comfort,peace and true love.

She swallows the hourglass pill of life=she was born into this fleshly life. The sickness then followed a short time after her birth or taking the pill.

One day the sickness will finally pass from her as the hourglass sand runs to the bottom. Then she glows with a new light and life.

Sometimes we think with all the heartache that life isn't worth living,but the end result is worth all the heartache.

In other words the other woman that told me I could handle taking the pill was telling me I can handle the tribulations that will come from this life.

For anyone who missed it, John B Wells was fired from C2C.  David Hodges does quite the dress down of C2C here:  http://thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/02/06/john-b-wells-fired-for-being-too-popular-and-truthful-an-exclusive-interview/

Wells is starting his own show.  Caravan to Midnight.


I missed it since I haven't been a listener since Bell sold out to the corporatist Premier/aka Clear Channel.  The few shows I'd listened to were exactly as David describes.  It was like C2C had been neutered.  I'd heard good things about Wells and have seen him interviewed in a few places which was interesting but I never got around to returning to C2C myself.

A book I would like to lay hands on and read:  Ever Ancient Ever New - Celtic Spirituality in the 20th Century by Delores T Whelan

and more on Pelagius and Pelagianism

particularly as pertains to comparison with Deism and concepts employed by the Founders & the Old Irish side of the concept of the Third Option

http://www.seanmultimedia.com/Pie_Pelagius_Letters.html

"Let them also read my recent little treatise which we were obliged to publish a short while ago in defense of free will,
and let them acknowledge how unfair is their determination to disparage us for a denial of grace, when we throughout
almost the whole work acknowledge fully and sincerely both free will and grace."
~ Pelagius

I've been looking at the roots of the ideas that formed the Third Option in its many facets. I traced some of those ideas back to several sets

There were in the early broadcasts of these ideas several groups of people whose experiences went into them:

The Ascetic Tradition with the Ionians, Cistercian, and Ceile De groups who mixed to varying degrees] with the living tradition the druidic led older culture. Ideas from these groups can be found in both the Laconian contribution and the Mason/Templar.  (Third Option)

Well, looking over these groups brought up a discovery of an accusation made in 314 at the Council of Arles which showed something peculiar in the beliefs of monastic leaders of the Isles.

That at least some of those (representatives) from the Isles present (at the meeting) may have been open practitioners of Pelagian concepts which focused on the concept of Free Will existing and working in tandem with Grace. Something we see in the beliefs of several of the Founders and in the principles that are part of the operation of the Third Option.

(Addendum:  In the roots of both Laconian /Old Irish circa 1623 to present/, and /Masonic/Templar tradition circa 1724 - 1800/, the term 'Grace' has an additional connotation:  "Fall from Grace" includes the dual meaning of specifically the collapse of the last technological high civilization on Earth which was space travel capable & integrated in the Greater Community to some degree - this extraneous connotation is part of the 'tiered style' /modern term/ of thinking communicating from that time period where terms often held two or more referential meanings that added depth and breadth to their dialogs and efforts, and which sometimes adds confusion to accounts.)

Not being what anyone could call well read in biblical or doctrinal arguments, I stumbled across this one completely by accident, following synchronistic bread crumbs of recreational inquiry. The short description is that I had a 'wow' moment as I looked at an accusation attributed to Germanus of Auxarre leveled at the british contingent attending the event.

Edit to add:

Definition: Third Option = construct devised by a working group within the colonial founders of the US who were 'informed' about the generational corruption, ET Contact, and Earths post apocalyptic post tech civilization "fall from grace". Construct was devised to chaperon current edition of civilization through the next 500 years to practice and prove Theorem on Free Will & Self Governance thus establishing the viability of the 'template' for a future 'global governance' for the People, of the People, by the People.

This is a construct that was held within the creation of this nation under the care of several of the most well known founders & associates including Washington, Jefferson, and others not on the public list. There were three powers at work during that time...one was the teamed Laconian/Masonic/Paine, another was a provincial for lack of a better term, and the third was a colonial branch of the fledgling illuminists who desired centralization and connection to the fledgling central banking being established in Britain.

So when I say the origins and outcome of the creation of the nation (representation of the multifaceted template) could have gone either direction (upright or corrupt) at any time in its history and has indeed swung back and forth like a pendulum over its existence, this is what I mean. It wasn't till the last 100 years starting just a bit prior to the institution of the Federal Reserve, that the pendulum actually got stuck in one nature.

So as I understand it in 314 the monastic leaders in the Isles, including Pelagius who was a Briton, may have been practitioners of what was later termed the pelagian ideas (early Christian ideas/beliefs/practices which were sheltered in both Britain & Eire at the time of Diocletian's neurosis and re-emerged publicly the year after the ban was lifted by Constantine in the Edict of Milan, based on this event Council of Arles.

So what version of biblical books did they have in their possession?  Which were included and which not?  That contributed to the perspectives on the side of the Islanders at Arles?

This was all prior to the Councils of Nicea, Laodicea, Hippo, and Carthage where they essentially went through the editing process to compile a bible and associated texts that we would find recognizable today.   And it was also prior to the compilation of the Codex Sinaiticus and 20 years prior to Constantine outfitting the Christian Churches with complete Bibles, and also prior to the missions of Palladius, Patraic, Columba et al in the Isles to build communities of converts and inspect (interrogate?) the existing monastic groups.

Cy


Edit to Add:

Ok so thinking out loud as I've been reading, I keep finding reference to the semi-palaginist position that says it had a closer affinity to the Sentences of Arles than to the Donatist position.  So far unless I'm missing something it seems that the prime argument within the Donatist position at the time was that the Donatists wanted their church leaders to be saint-like; pure in character, in order to be qualified to conduct any type of ceremony or symbolic tradition.  And the Celtic Christian concepts of free will and grace having melded with the pre-Christian concepts of Excellence (including moralistic personal conduct of teachers and leaders), would have more in common with the Donatist position at the event.  So I'm not getting why the Britons seem to be associated to the array against the pleas by the Donatists at the meeting unless there was something else about them that was unappealing?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelagianism

EXCERPT:

Asa Mahan said, “The injustice of Necessitarians, in holding up the doctrine of Liberty, as a Pelagian heresy, now appears perfectly manifest. Pelagius, to be sure, held to the doctrine of Liberty, as he also did that of the existence of God, and of a future retribution. But he held neither, any more than the others as peculiar to himself, and the one, just as well as either of the others, may be charged upon those who hold it, as a Pelagian heresy. Strange indeed, to charge that as a Pelagian heresy, which was the universal doctrine of the church centuries before Pelagius existed.” Doctrine of the Will, published in 1846, p. 67

All of the Church Fathers before Augustine taught that humans have the power of free will and the choice over good and evil.

Justin Martyr said that 'every created being is so constituted as to be capable of vice and virtue. For he can do nothing praiseworthy, if he had not the power of turning either way'. 'Unless we suppose man has the power to choose the good and refuse the evil, no one can be accountable for any action whatever.' (The First Apology, 43). Tertullian also argued that no reward can be justly bestowed, no punishment can be justly inflicted, upon him who is good or bad by necessity, and not by his own choice. (Doctrine of the Will by Asa Mahan, p. 61). Likewise Origen,[11] and Clement of Alexandria[12]

Justin Martyr said, “Let some suppose, from what has been said by us, that we say that whatever occurs happens by a fatal necessity, because it is foretold as known beforehand, this too we explain. We have learned from the prophets, and we hold it to be true, that punishments, chastisements, and good rewards, are rendered according to the merit of each man’s actions. Now, if this is not so, but all things happen by fate, then neither is anything at all in our own power. For if it is predetermined that this man will be good, and this other man will be evil, neither is the first one meritorious nor the latter man to be blamed. And again, unless the human race has the power of avoiding evil and choosing good by free choice, they are not accountable for their actions.”[13]


So aside from noting the Doctrine of the Will is written within proximity of the founders lives - 1846, I can note these concepts on free will peculiar to Old Irish tradition and within the Third Option.

Additionally something came up yesterday that might as well have been sibling to it...

I haven't been to farsight yet, but here is my initial take on you posting I quoted:

Implication 1 : There has been proof we have different dna and that the dna that is external to this world comes from multiple specie groups of hominids. This has been known since the early parts of the Human Genome Project. Controls were implemented.

Implication 2 : It will be Free Will once again...consequently, the potential for success of the Third Option which is a self-initiated re-construct of human society and self-governance based on the human experience of the early template-under-glams (guise), for the Third Option, demonstrating its strengths and weaknesses and responsibilities will follow a great realization triggered by a multi-faceted comprehension of the human condition in all forms.

Implication 3 : It will be a realization that we have been held back, and will self-assess our own fait accompli of proportional responsibility in having subsisted in that state for the duration of that period, and a subsequent realization that in facing this we empower ourselves to either remain in this state or surpass it of our own accord; by our own free will.

Implication 4 : It will be a part of the I-3 realization that history has been rewritten to keep us in this current state of human condition; that the process of correcting our understanding of history is already underway through self-efforts of alternative individuals and groups who share information through creative commons licenses or open source relational publications.

and to this a fifth....

Implication 5 : In embracing this whole experience, instigated by Others of both physical and non-physical self-expressions, we will achieve the conclusion to have acted in the capacity to achieve these alterations successfully and to move forward to examine the potential and options of a future by our own hands.

Hello Qrios, It's very slow around here for sure. I wish you would drop in more often and take part. I'm still hanging around but I get bored easily with so few being here.

Anti-gravity propulsion comes ‘out of the closet’

http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc1064.htm


Click above link for full article.


Boeing, the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer, has admitted it is working on experimental anti-gravity projects that could overturn a century of conventional aerospace propulsion technology if the science underpinning them can be engineered into hardware.

As part of the effort, which is being run out of Boeing’s Phantom Works advanced research and development facility in Seattle, the company is trying to solicit the services of a Russian scientist who claims he has developed anti-gravity devices in Russia and Finland. The approach, however, has been thwarted by Russian officialdom.

Peter Goodgame and The New Exodus

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/actsradionetwork/2014/02/11/the-sharpening-016-peter-goodgame-and-the-new-exodus-2


Most of us have heard about shadows found in the Old Testament that point to the New Testament, but how about within the exodus account? Does the exodus of Moses point to a larger theme in the New Testament? Does this have anything to do with modern eschatology, such as the identity of Mystery Babylon and the Harlot? Can this understanding help bring us into a closer walk with God and strengthen our faith? Peter Goodgame joins us tonight to answer these questions and much more through a teaching from his research into what he calls "The New Exodus".

After listening to this interview of Peter Goodgame it is very clear to me that the new exodus will one day come to full bloom. Like so many other events in The Bible they seem to be a type of repeat. Once you really get into scripture you can't help but see this. Just reading about the Walls of Jericho I still view them as I have for years. The World one day will fall flat. It's all about this whole worldly (earthly) system that must die.

Love isn't about fitting in,looking the other way, bowing down to other gods or embracing false doctrines............"The salt losses its flavor."

What many people can't understand is that false gods,princes,still rule the nations of this world today. This isn't about what once was,this is about what is.
