What if reality is really a giant pinball game?

Never mind the matrix, if you can get security clearance (you will need a genuine reason like attending some sort of event there) take a walk through the Genome Campus at Hinxton, Cambridge, England.

There are numerous chromed spheres, each slightly tweaked to represent various stages of life. The one with a hole represents the stage at which it becomes apparent that we are coelenterates, a biological taxonomical classification meaning we have a gut that opens at the mouth and exits the other end.

The effect of this tableau of embryonic development is to make the long slopes, interspersed by post-modernist buildings, appear as a giant pinball machine, giving a slightly science-fiction sense of unease that things might just roll down and bowl one over or a huge flipper whack out of the sides.

Oldies like me will remember the blob thing in “The Prisoner” TV series. Well here in Hinxton Big brother definitely is watching and don’t even think what escaped chimera might just be lurking up the next level. Best enjoyed at dusk when it becomes eerily empty.

Symbolism in the NatWest advert

Fair use stills for review purposes:

IMG_0188.PNG

The children throw coins into a fountain. Ever heard of a wishing well? It’s an ancient pagan ritual. Occult.

IMG_0185.PNG

Ever heard of pennies for a dead man’s eyes. How sinister do you need?

IMG_0189.PNG

An octagon, in church symbology midway between heaven (the circle) and earth (the square) – why show the octagonal form of the fountain so clearly? Remember – in this 30 second commercial so there are no wasted shots.

IMG_0187.PNG

Oh that logo is a bit illuminating isn’t it. Three 6-sided cubes? 666?

Does NatWest have a monopoly on such symbolism? Hardly. One of its competitors has a dark horse that canters down through time like a death horseman of the apocalypse into a maternity ward.

Christians recognize these symbols. Our Lord reveals what is hidden in plain sight. The love of money is the root of all evil, the wages of sin is death. Now there is some money sense.

It IS a trick (not a treat).

Skulls are everywhere, even on baby clothes. The icon of the death cult is ever more pervasive due to the sterling efforts of that very dubious artist with the aptly dubious name. Well there ARE NO COINCIDENCES. The evil IS hidden in plain sight, and the only reason most people can’t see it is because they are not born again Christians, they have not had their eyes opened by the light of our Savior. Other symbols are also hidden in plain sight.

So for you edification and education I re-present to you an illuminati ufo glowing triangle disguised as a play button, that takes you to a little occult game where you can ritualistically practice drawing symbols. Can you feel it sucking you in yet? Or maybe just adding to the background relentless acclimatization to the occult just like the relentless acclimatization they have going on to deviant lifestyles and many other things that are contrary to the way God would prefer we choose to live our lives.

Also, for the record, I’m feeling blessed, not “lucky” as there is no such thing as “luck” either.

Games and races

As it is the Rio Olympics at the moment, I thought that games and races might be a pleasent topic to explore. So let’s do a quest game that is a race!

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
  Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV)

Oft times people only remember the part “seek and ye shall find.” However what Matthew says is so important, it is in essence repeated in the very next sentence. Experienced bible readers will know that if something is important it is repeated, either in the same book, or elsewhere in the bible. “Seek and ye shall find” is initially given in a context – that of asking, being given, seeking, finding, knocking, and opening. Lest you be tempted to take any of these six elements out of context, Matthew repeats all six elements in the same order in the very next passage. I think it therefore safe to say that all six are essential to the concept Matthew is trying to convey and in that order.

So, when you need something – perhaps something you have lost, or maybe something you simply need – don’t just say to yourself in a “secular” way “seek and ye shall find” as if like some hopeful mantra this will simply aid your perseverance “acting in your own strength” and so lead to your finding whatever it is you seek. Matthew is telling you to ASK first, then you will be GIVEN something to help you in the seeking (the Holy Spirit) THEN SEEK and you will FIND. Sadly even then most people will stop. Hey-ho I got what I was seeking game over. No! Matthew has reiterated that there are still two elements to do. KNOCK and it shall be OPENED. But surely you have what you sought? How about some gratitude though? Maybe knock on God’s gate just to say thank you? God has all sorts of lovely surprises. If you were ever blessed, perhaps as a child, to have a relative who you would go visit to say thank you for a gift and at that meeting they would then give you something more, then you have already experienced what paying a grateful visit to your creator can be like.

There is a clue to the gift you will receive. Matthew does not say you what you knock on. People think usually in terms of a door, but Matthew only a little further on is letting you in on some further information you need on your quest – yes it IS like an questing adventure game – you do have to strive to achieve the ultimate prize in the race of life (Psalm 19:5, Ecclesiastes 9:11, 1 Corinthians 9:24, Hebrews 12:1).

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matthew 7:14 (KJV)

It is not a door you are knocking on – well think about it – where in a naïf sense would you find God living? – Heaven. Never heard of Heaven’s gate? Think of the walled cities – gates. Jesus being a “good shepherd” and sheep pens with gates to keep them safe. Anyway Matthew has made it easy, he’s told you its a gate, that is narrow (strait) found on a narrow way, he has said where it leads (life – hint: God is the source of all life) and (big hint) that this is something for the seeker (few there be that find it). So its a GATE you need to KNOCK on. THEN it gets OPENED and you get your big surprise extra reward, that you did not expect. And even though you read all this stuff about God, and you read in the bible what heaven is like – you see through a glass darkly, you CANNOT imagine the things God has ready to give you in the eternal life to come. Not things you ask for, you are not capable of asking for what you cannot imagine, so God does not expect you to ask for what happens once the gate has been opened. God operates through a relationship of grace. Go get to know Him, for sure ask for your simple needs but when you are seeking, remember Matthew already gave you the information about WHAT you should REALLY BE SEEKING before you got to the bit about seek and ye shall find:

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Matthew 7:14 (KJV)

In summary, life is a race, but the swiftest runners are not doing it in their own strength – they get help from God. In Isaiah we have a whole section about gates in the description of the temple, but since Jesus made the new covenant we know the temple is now in us and the gate is the narrow one that Matthew describes, but the bible gives us clues on our quest, which is why we don’t just abandon the teachings God gave us before Jesus came and redeemed us with the new covenant. Close by Isaiah’s information about gates you will find:

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

You wanna run the race? Go seek God, see what He wants you to do, do it, and you’ll find Him directing your steps along that race, the shortest most direct route. The real universe is not just the three or four dimensions you can experience easily – there are many more (Paul talks about this and I have blogged about it extensively). We all know the quicker route is the straight one, this road is straight but it goes to other dimensions – heaven. You are SEEKING that ROAD because you are seeking the WAY to Kingdom of Heaven. It is not in a direction YOU can even see, let alone run along, in your own strength. You need to find the WAY. You have been told where to find the way. You need to go meet the WAY and when you do He will show you and help you to run it. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake… Psalm 23 – the clues are everywhere once you start reading the bible. Go knock on His gate – its right there, inside you, in your heart. Your heart beats knock knock knock – a clue. It has a double beat, boom-boom, a clue to the original two tablets of the law, which is now graven on your heart – your conscience. In Psalm 19:8 you can see these words set out literally written there for you right next to each other: “…the heart: the commandment…” just another clue for you there. And you need a strong heart to run a race… not in your earthly strength, but in that God-logic opposite sense – weak made strong in the Saviour’s Love as the hymn goes.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:6 (KJV)

Remember Psalm 19:5 – a race for a strong man is a joy? Read the rest of that Psalm and you will see the prophecy of the marriage – THE marriage of the Church and Christ. There is a prize worth running for!

NWO-lympics!

Rio Olympics opening ceremony had images that resembled:

Projected evil eye with satanic “peace” sign (original crucifixion upside down teutonic rune of death) with added leaves (for pagan tree worship) appears centre of “iris” as fireworks make stadium appear as the eye.

Swastikas appear multiple times during the dance sequences video montage editing.

Single dancer also makes the sign of the swastika by placing his body in the position of a swastika crucifixion.

Skulduggery

“Skulduggery” these days means underhand behaviour and deception. The word originates probably from a Scottish word for adultery. Adultery as well as being  sexual sin, also implies adulteration, the adding of an impurity to something wholesome for bad reasons. The word also offers a handy pun for this blog article…

Is it me?

No it isn’t. The world really is peppered with satanic symbols and it really is trying to push, ease, cajole and groom you stealthily through nasty little gateways into bad stuff.

So here’s what I found on just one popular culture website on one day – Cool Hunting website today – without even really trying hard.

SKULL image; PYRAMID image; GOAT-HEAD image; Invite to “BE GREEDY.”

An up-beat non-critical article about transgender options in virtual reality SIMS game, a similarly toned article about recreational Cannabis use (yes I do characterise this example as recreational not medical), and an article about getting orgasms from your music.

So, do we think this is a bunch of wholesome and healthy stuff that a Christian would feel happy to push out onto the world’s lifestyles?

Fortunately we know that the saved reborn are given eyes to see what the unsaved, sadly even when it is pointed out to them, cannot see. If you want to see what is really afoot in this world, you need to light of the world to see by, Jesus.

John 8:12 (KJV)

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

 

“What’s going on?”

I’ve had a rough few weeks. I am not writing this to pour out my woes to my small, somewhat unknown to me audience who doubtless don’t read my blog to be made miserable. This is leading somewhere nice so stick with it!

In the last few weeks I have been involved in far more that I would like of very stressful relationships and interactions with people that frankly and plainly are neither easy to get along with, change, or avoid. It has been badly affecting my work life, my church life, my self-esteem, mental health and morale, making me thoroughly miserable, and this has been spilling over into the most important part of my life, which aside from actually knowing the creator of this universe, is my marriage.

The short version of the story of my marriage is that the first girl I met and kissed when I was 17 lasted just one day back then. That one day left me broken-hearted for 38 years wishing I had done differently and married her. I kept the birthday card she gave me when I was 17, I’m in my mid 50’s now. For decades I could not forget her. I went off into a life of several sins that I am not describing today. 38 years on from that a Jesus I didn’t yet know crept up on me unbidden and changed my life. He then arranged to put me on that girl’s doorstep knocking on her door and asking to take her out to a tango dance. All I could do was hope and put my whole life in the hands of the Lord who had saved me and changed me. I did not fall, Jesus did not have to catch me. One thing led to another and I went on to marry the girl I had loved and missed all my life.

Last week I received a completely unexpected payment of some money from somewhere I could not have had imagined I would. It was utterly unpredictable. It was not one of those compensation things that here in the UK everyone knows about. There is no way I could ever have imagined I would be sent this money.

Having the money will quickly solve problem that has been a longstanding annoyance to all concerned and will cause a pleasant surprise for someone when they see money  in their bank that they had not expected. It will also help to resolve in some measure one of the issues that have indirectly been part of the unpleasant mess of the last few weeks. There is also some left for my wife and me once that other matter has been dealt with.

Then later last week I received an email saying that a certain very expensive item of furniture that we need for our house and I have been saving hard for was on offer at a very large discount.

Wow, great! But… I’m asking myself… what’s going on? Life was being horrible and all of a sudden there is unexpected money that is solving problems and then the thing I’m saving for is suddenly within reach. Then I was watching Joyce Meyer and somehow something she said popped the first part of the answer to my “What’s going on?’ question into my head. Grace. Joyce wasn’t talking about Grace, but somehow her words about something else just triggered the answer in my head.

The thing is, and I think I may speak for a lot of people here, one doesn’t think of Grace as being why something nice happened. When the Lord saved and changed me I had no understanding at first that there was a real living Jesus that had come along for no reason I knew of and changed my life in a way (without me having asked Him to) that most people believe is not a possible thing. It took me a long while to figure it out. It was Grace. Now Jesus has come along with some money and a discount on some furniture and I was asking why. Turns out is was Grace.

I, and I suspect most you you dear readers, don’t immediately think of Grace as the explanation when wondering why good things happen, it seems to me because we are not accustomed to being Grace-full people. We do not do many acts of kindness, especially we don’t do many random ones. Jesus however does them again and again all over the planet millions of times to the most unlikely and undeserving people. Because we don’t think and act like Him we don’t ascribe such a motive as to us it is a rarely exercised motive.

God of course solves problems like a Rubik Cube. With one twist several things are answered and pieces you didn’t imagine would be affected or line up suddenly are resolved into good order. He is clever that way. INFINITELY clever. He WILL surprise you. He WILL delight and astound you. He also is generous giving you not only more that you could or would expect, He gives you things you did not imagine or know you wanted until you get them and realise it is the completely perfect gift that was beyond your capacity to dream up. Like when He gave me my wife, the girl I would not have consciously dared dream ever actually could be.

But (He keeps on giving) there’s more. Today is exactly the third anniversary of the day I re-met my wife and asked her to the dance. Today I will be taking my wife to the bank to cause the pleasant surprise for someone else, and then to the furniture shop to buy the item that she has been looking at and hoping to eventually have for several months. This is possible because of the Grace of Jesus. However. like a Rubik Cube He has also arranged it as a gift for us on this important anniversary. The relationship with Jesus is full of Grace which we so easily forget because we simply don’t (sadly) think like Him and be nice to others for no specific reason other than that we should, nearly as much as we should. The relationship is however also personal. Jesus isn’t just a beneficent glow in the sky. He is not a belly buddha you rub for money. Jesus knows you, He knows your life, He knows those you love and He loves them too. He knows how you feel, He knows your secret deepest most hidden hopes and fears. He will help, sometimes with help you need but didn’t ask for, and sometimes He will also give you a personal PERFECT present for an anniversary or special occasion, like the perfect Brother He is, who knows how to make you smile big time.

Thank you Jesus for the perfect anniversary present for my wife and me. Thank you also for what it teaches.

There is another teaching that Jesus wants me to pass on. Just as when good things happen we forget Grace as an explanation, when bad things go on we forget the devil as an explanation. Just as Jesus is personal and real and is behind things that happen, so is the bad guy. When bad things happen, STOP and think about who might be motivating things in others and in yourself, REBUKE Satan, TRUST and ASK Jesus to get you through it, not in the way you think Jesus should, but in the altogether better solving a Rubik’s Cube way that He has planned (which may seem impossible, be hard on you for a long while, and require lots of fortitude and faith).

I waited 38 years to stand terrified of rejection on the doorstep of the girl who became my wife. Jesus did it that way for reasons I am still learning. Today He has arranged the furniture we want as a present and He has sprinkled some goodness for others as wrapping for the present.

Take hope, remember Grace, practice Grace, remember and rebuke Satan when things go wrong. Trust in the Lord who is also your loving brother, build your relationship with the real living Jesus. He is the loveliest person you can have in your life and He is there for you even when you don’t know Him at all, because that is His Grace.

Here is the birthday card my wife gave me when I was 17 years old almost 40 years ago. She still likes being with me, and we like being with Jesus. And here is a picture of the furniture we are buying. Jesus does humour – he just said a dreadful pun – Sofa so good. Nice one J!

Click the sofa pic to go to the Futon Company furniture shop that make them if you’d like to see more – this blog also deserves filing under the design label as they are really really nice sofas.

By the way, as I stood on that doorstep 3 years ago I said to Jesus “Catch me if I fall.” What do you see in the picture on that card eh? It’s all about trust and faith isn’t it.

I went looking for a nice Rubik Cube vid to illustrate my blog. I found a perfect one, but what’s that I see on her tee shirt – “I am”? Ha Ha Jesus I think that has your name all over it. Yeah I get how clever it was of you to arrange that – like solving a Rubik Cube. What a beautiful guy you are Jesus. Click the vid below to watch, it is lovely. God is great!

 

Hidden meanings

Today I found another skull image hidden in plain sight. Just another sign of the times. There are thousands of them. Just turn a packet of Cadbury Giant buttons upside down and compare to a Google search of skull cartoons.

Did the artist who drew it know? Who knows, the skull image is so prevalent now in  the End Times that it easily seeps into the sub-conscious, especially of those whom the Lord has not yet opened their eyes.

Screen Shot 2016-04-17 at 09.20.42.png

But let us turn Satan’s nasty little games to do the Lord’s work. Let’s look for skulls and hidden things in the Bible.

If you search for skull in the Bible you will find it mentioned about half a dozen times. All but two mentions refer to Golgotha – the place of the skull – where Jesus won his victory.

Of the two exceptions, one refers to Abimelech’s head, and the other  in 2 Kings to Jezebel. Both the exceptions refer to death and destruction where death seemed to be the victor, and the non-exceptions to the place where Christ fought death and won.

And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands. – 2 Kings 9:35 (KJV)

The example in 2 Kings is especially enlightening because it is an echo prophesy. The bones of the head, hands and feet of Jezebel that remain after her death reflect the crucified hands and feet, and crowned head of Christ. Such echo prophesies are part of the watermarking of the divine word of God, our Holy Bible.

 

Spoon-feeding us death?

consumion banner small

Everywhere you will see the advert for death – Satan’s main product – symbolised by the image of a skull, because Jesus was crucified at a place known as the place of skulls.

These images hidden in plain sight are everywhere from Damien Hurst’s jewelled skull to baby clothes. Here’s a new take on it however. The old saying is “If you sup with the devil use a long spoon” and it is an old saying, over 400 years old. It simply means if you keep bad company don’t get too close. Both Chaucer and Shakespeare referred to it

“‘Therfor bihoveth him a ful long spoon/ That shal ete with a feend,’ thus herde I see.” (Canterbury Tales – The Squire’s Tale, c1386 – Chaucer)

“‘This is a devil, and no monster; I will leave him; I have no long spoon.'” (The Tempest, circa 1610 – Shakespeare)

Here is a new take on it, and no it is NOT on my wish list!
