The Mind Control Scrapbook: Russia's Psychotronic Weapons to Become Part of it's Arsenal?


To be honest, I find this story so disturbing that I don't quite know how to blog about it.   I came upon this version of it at the Russian "GlobalResearch" website:

Psychotronic and Electromagnetic Weapons: Remote Control of the Human Nervous System

There's several things to note here. First, is the implication that the (supposedly) defunct and (supposedly) retired HAARP ionospheric heater has mind control applications:
"Anyway, in the past Russians were not resolved to put those means to work. When the construction of the American system HAARP was launched, with the system supposedly being able to target large regions of the planet by vibrating the ionosphere in brain frequencies (in this experiment the brain frequencies were not used, but the HAARP system can transmit in brain frequencies as well), Russia declared its willingness to ban mind control technologies. The Russian State Duma and consequently , the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States addressed the United Nations, OBSE and the European Council with a proposal for an international convention banning the development and use of informational weapons. According to the Russian newspaper Segodnya in March 1998, the matter was discussed with U.N. secretary general Kofi Anan, and included on the agenda of the General Assembly of the U.N. web.iol,cz, op cit "
The problem, as the article suggests, is that it is allegedly possible through electromagnetic modulation to remotely hypnotize individuals, a technique which couple with the regional broadcasting capabilities of the ionospheric heater, could turn it into an awesome mind control weapon of truly strategic applications, a problem first broached by Dr. Nick Begich:
"Dr. Robert Becker, who was twice nominated for Nobel Prize for his share in the discovery of the effects of pulsed fields at the healing of broken bones, wrote in his book “Body Electric” about the experiment from 1974 by J. F. Schapitz, released due to the Freedom of Information Act request.
"J.F. Schapitz stated:
“In this investigation it will be shown that the spoken word of hypnotist may also be conveyed by modulated electromagnetic energy directly into the subconscious parts of the human brain – i. e. without employing any technical devices for receiving or transcoding the messages and without the person exposed to such influence having a chance to control the information input consciously.”
"In one of the four experiments subjects were given a test of hundred questions, ranging from easy to technical ones. Later, not knowing they were being irradiated, they would be subjected to information beams suggesting the answers to the questions they had left blank, amnesia for some of their correct answers, and memory falsification for other correct answers."(emphasis added)
There is even, if one reads closely, the subtlest suggestion that perhaps some of the Ukrainian crisis might have to do with such technologies:
"After the putsch, the vice president of the League of Independent Scientists of the USSR, Victor Sedlecki, published a declaration in the Russian daily Komsomolskaya Pravda where he stated:
'As an expert and a legal entity I declare that mass production … of psychotronic biogenerators was launched in Kiev (this is indeed a very serious issue). I cannot assert for sure that that were exactly Kiev generators that were used during the putsch… However, the fact that they were used is obvious to me. What are psychotronic generators? It is an electronic equipment producing the effect of guided control in human organism. It especially affects the left and right hemisphere of the cortex. This is also the technology of the U.S. Project Zombie 5“. He further stated that due to the inexperience of the personnel who operated them the attempt to use the generators failed.'
Then comes the most significant part of the article, namely, the allusion to the possibility that the Russian government took the decision, shortly after Mr. Putin's assumption of power, to openly incorporate such weapons into its strategic and tactical arsenals:
"Vladimir Lopatin visited the USA in 1999 as a chairman of the Military Reform Subcommittee of the USSR Supreme Soviet Committee for Issues of Defense and State Security and met with Richard Cheney. At that time he was described as the “leader of a new breed of Soviet dissidents”. Then he disappeared from top ranks of Russian politicians.
"Why has this research remained classified until present time? There are two explanations for this: First there is a secret arms race in progress in the world where the superpowers compete to gain decisive supremacy in this area and in this way master the control of the whole world. Second the governments keep those technologies in store for the case that they would not be able to control, by democratic means, the crisis that may arise as a result of their poor decisions. In both cases the era of democracy and human freedom in history will come to an end. According to the declaration of the former Russian Defense minister Serdjukov, there are maximally eight years left within which those weapons will officially become a part of the Russian military arsenal. For democracy this would mean a beginning of the end." (Emphasis added)
Now, the obvious implication of the second italicized statement is that the decision was taken in Russia, following American refusals to discuss or negotiate on the subject of electromagnetic and mind control weapons, to integrate such weapons capabilities within the Russian arsenal. For the followers of this story, this is not really news. I have written about such capabilities with respect to ancient architecture and engineering - summarizing the work of German engineer Dr. Konstantin Meyl - in my book Babylon's Banksters. And former Lt. Col. (U.S. Army, Ret.) Tom Bearden has been documenting and warning of the dangers of these types of weapons since the 1970s. In my book Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men I pointed out the existence of merely one patent for mental and emotional manipulation through remote electromagnetic means. And it is but one of many. FInally, there is within the assassination-conspiracy literature surrounding not only the JFK assassination but, more importantly, the RFK assassination, a set of facts that would indicate that some sort of mind control technology was in play, not only with Jack Ruby's assassination of Oswald, but with Sirhan Sirhan. What we are being warned about, in other words, is a coming "mind control" warfare, using not just "soft" forms of neural linguistic programming and propaganda, but the "hard forms" of actual electromagnetic bombardment.

But there's something else, and I'm sure the reader caught it, and that is the first statement which I boldfaced and italicized, namely, that one Mr. Lopatin visited the USA in 1999 in his capacity as "a chairman of the Military Reofmr Subcommittee of the USSR Supreme Soviet Committee for Issues of Defense and State Security."

Say what? 1999?!?  Supreme Soviet Committee for Issues of Defense and State Security of the USSR, the good ole Sovietsky Soyuz Socialistichestkik Respublik? But wait a minute... Wasn't that formally disbanded? Didn't it collapse in 1991? What happened? Did someone forget to put in an order for new official stationary?  Or...?

Niemoller Imprisoned for Righteous Resistance

Niemoller Imprisoned for Righteous Resistance
The results of some trials are foregone conclusions. In the case of Martin Niemöller the words of Hitler ensured that any court appearance would be perfunctory. Niemöller had delivered a "rebellious" sermon in 1937 and Hitler heard of it and of taped phone conversations in which Niemöller repudiated the Nazi line. Bent on obtaining absolute control over the church, Hitler flew into a rage and bellowed that Niemöller was to be placed in a concentration camp and kept there for life since he had proven himself "incorrigible."

It is true that Niemöller had helped organize a "resistance" to Hitler's takeover of the Protestant churches, a group called the Pastor's Emergency League. "...we have called into being an 'Emergency Alliance' of pastors who have given one another their word in a written declaration that they will be bound in their preaching by the Holy Scripture and the Reformation confessions alone..." he wrote in an open letter September 1933. This group developed into the Confessing Church. Nonetheless, he apologized with deep regret in October 1945, after the war, for failing to speak out early and strongly enough against Nazism:

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

However, there were plenty of "German Christians" who did not resist at all; who thought that Christ had come through Hitler and their first task was to be German, not Christian. Pastor Leutheuser verbalized their thoughts. Niemöller, an ex-submarine captain, was appalled at this attitude. Christ was to be central in every Christian's heart. 7,000 Lutheran ministers agreed with him. Niemöller, until his imprisonment, was their strategist. Karl Barth joined this Confessing Church in writing a rejection of the state's claim to totalitarian power in religious and political matters. This became known as the Barmen Declaration.

Although Niemöller was the symbol of Protestant resistance to Hitler, he has been accused of anti-semitism because he preached that the Jews will suffer until they embrace Christ.

In prison, he wrote many letters. On February 8, 1938 the second day of his trial, he wrote to his wife Else, "Give my greetings to the congregation and tell them that I place my entire confidence in God's mercy, and that I am convinced that one day we will recognize in the light the paths along which he leads us now in the darkness and that we will praise his wisdom! God does not desire to give us earthly hopes, but he will certainly not abandon us. Jesus Christ remains the same, that is certain; and God will grant us that "we remain with him!" The trial ended on this day, March 2, 1938, and afterward he was sentenced to seven months in prison. Hitler had him arrested again almost as soon as he was released. This time his resistance placed him in concentration camps at Sachsenhausen and Dachau until the end of the war. Altogether he spent eight years in prison.

When Niemöller visited the hotel where Albert Speer, a Hilter associate, was held after the war, Speer expected to see a broken man. Instead, it was a healthy and youthful figure he saw who had emerged from the camps. Perhaps a clear conscience had helped keep him so.

Watch "BOUGHT" film uncovering toxic food supply and pharmaceuticals for FREE through March 6

food supply

(NaturalNews) From the creators of Doctored, an acclaimed documentary film exposing the medical-industrial complex and its monopolistic stronghold over American healthcare, a new film entitled Bought has just been released that takes a deeper look into this sinister industry and how it's intentionally poisoning not only our medicine but also our food supply.

Available for FREE online viewing through March 6, Bought uncovers the truth behind three major aspects of modern life: vaccines, GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and pharmaceuticals. Though they might seem independent of one another, these three industries have been thrust upon the masses by the same evil forces that have infiltrated the highest levels of education, industry and government.

Made possible by generous donations from thousands of IndieGogo supporters, Brought tackles each of these important issues in-depth, linking them to Wall Street corruption, widespread chronic disease, autism and more. The film aims to draw mainstream attention to the fact that multinational corporations have colluded with the government to peddle poisons on the masses, without consequence.

An unspeakable evil is literally manifesting a dystopian reality in which the food supply is lurking with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), pesticides and heavy metals, and in which medicine has degenerated into nothing more than the systematic drugging and vaccination of nearly the entire population.

"Peel back the layers and see what's really driving our industrialized food, our insane vaccine expansion, and our love affair with pharmaceuticals- it's the same villain," explain the creators of the film.

See the movie at  -

Modern food and drugs have become covert killers

The meaning behind the film's title is simple: Major industries that claim to keep the public nourished (Big Food) and healthy (Big Pharma) have been bought and paid for by special interests that aren't really concerned with whether or not you and your family live well. As usual, their primary goal is money, and lots of it.

Once an art practiced by individuals with a true passion for healing, medicine as we generally know it today has been hijacked by a mafia cartel of drug and vaccine pushers. Profits, eugenics and depopulation have taken the place of compassion, care and well-being.

"MD's aren't being allowed to actually practice the art of medicine," lament the film's creators. "Chiropractors are marginalized and sidelined and anyone who questions vaccination safety, pharmaceuticals, factory farms, etc. is ridiculed and belittled."

The food supply is in similar dire straits, having become so poisoned with herbicides, genetically engineered substances, processed additives and other deadly chemicals that it is no longer a trustworthy source of sustenance.

Vaccines are a fraud: they haven't been proven effective, and they're deadly

And what about vaccines, which have supposedly increased life expectancy and helped eliminate the spread of infectious disease? If the current measles outbreak that some states are using as an excuse to try to eliminate vaccine exemptions is any indicator of what's really going on, Big Vaccine, just like Big Food and Big Pharma, is also a nefarious entity that simply can't be trusted.

"It's a $30 billion a year industry," states one expert about vaccines in the official trailer for Bought. "The government has said they're safe and effective for everybody, [but] the evidence doesn't suggest that."

"If you compare us to any other industrialized country, we are going backwards."

Chad Died as Foretold in His Vision

Chad Died as Foretold in His Vision
Chad waded hip-deep through the biggest controversy of seventh century England and never let it defile him. His place in history began when his oldest brother, Cedd, died of plague. Chad took Cedd's place as abbot of Lastingham in 664.

At the time, English Christians were divided. Irish Christians entering England from the island of Iona, evangelized the north. Roman Christians centered on Kent evangelized the south. The two traditions differed, most notably in their observance of Easter.

The person who became the chief spokesman for the Roman tradition was Wilfrid. When he was appointed as Bishop of York, Wilfrid rejected consecration at the hands of Celtic Christians and went to Gaul (France). He was gone for years. Rather than leave the see vacant, King Osway appointed Chad in Wilfrid's place. One bishop of the Roman church and two from the Irish tradition consecrated Chad.

Wilfrid finally came home, but had to retire to Rippon because Chad had his see. Earlier, Osway called a conference at Whitby to settle once for all which tradition England would follow. The conference chose the Roman.

Shortly after this, the pope appointed Theodore of Tarsus as Archbishop of Canterbury. Theodore decided that Wilfrid, not Chad was the rightful bishop of York.

Chad did not make a fuss. "If you decide that I have not rightly received the Episcopal character, I willingly lay down the office; for I have never thought myself worthy of it, but under obedience, I, though unworthy, consented to undertake it."

Impressed with the bishop's humility, Theodore convinced Chad to stay on as a bishop, consecrated him by the Roman rules, and sent him to England's middle kingdom, Mercia.

Aiden had taught his priests to make their rounds on foot so that they could chat with common folk on their own level. Chad followed this advice. He slogged everywhere on foot.

To prevent him from wearing himself out, Theodore presented Chad with a horse. When Chad refused to mount it, Theodore lifted him onto the horse with his own arms. Chad gave in graciously and found the animal was indeed a big help to him now that he was older.

In 672, Plague again stalked England. Many died of it. One day, Chad was praying at home. A monk named Owini heard singing in the sky near where Chad was praying. The singing lasted about half an hour. Afterward, Chad told the monks that he'd had learned in a vision from heaven that he was about to die.

Shortly afterward he took ill with the plague. On this day, March 2, 672, seven days after his vision, Chad died. He was immediately considered a saint. In time, the people of Mercia would dedicate over thirty churches in his name.

Remembering the Armenian Genocide Conducted by the Ottoman Empire (Turkey)

While the assault on the Khazar Jews and gypsys of WWII is never far from the mainstream conversation, no one talks about the greatest Christian persecution of modern history, one that has been avoided by mainstream news and denied or ignored by the Turkish government who executed it. That is known as the Armenian genocide, and we are now honoring the 100th anniversary of this hidden mass murder by the Ottoman (Turkish) empire.

In April of 1915 tens of thousands of Armenian men were rounded up and shot. Hundreds of thousands of women, old men and children were deported south across the mountains to Cilicia and Syria. On April 15 the Armenians appealed to the German Ambassador in Constantinople for formal German protection. This was rejected by Berlin on the grounds that it would offend the Turkish Government. By April 19 more than 50,000 Armenians had been murdered in the Van province.

Within nine months, more than 600,000 Armenians were massacred. Of the deported during that same period, more than 400,000 perished of the brutalities and privations of the southward march into Mesopotamia. By September more than a million Armenians were the victims of what later became known as the Armenian Genocide! A further 200,000 were forcibly converted to Islam to give Armenia a new Turkish sense of identity and strip the Armenian people of their past as the first Christian state in the world.

Faithful Fidelia Fiske Sailed for Persia

Faithful Fidelia Fiske Sailed for Persia
In 1840 and 1841, Fidelia Fiske lost a year from college while she fought for her life. She had contracted typhoid. Still weak, she went back to school in the fall of 1841 and completed her degree.
Thanks to the faith of Mary Lyon, there was a college for Fidelia to attend. Mary had opened America's first women's college, Mount Holyoke Female Seminary, just a year earlier. Fidelia was one of the most dedicated women that the new school produced.

Despite her poor health, Fidelia was determined to make a mark for Christ. Her determination sprang in part from her girlhood reading: by the time she was eight, she had read Cotton Mather's Magnalia Christi Americana and Timothy Dwight's Theology. At seventeen she began teaching in district schools.

Upon her graduation, friends talked her out of becoming a missionary to Persia. However, when she found out that the person selected to take her place was not able to go, she listened to her heart and rode 35 miles in an open sleigh to ask her mother's permission to go. On this day, March 1, 1843, she sailed from Boston Harbor for Smyrna on the Emma Isadora. She wrote to her sisters, "It may be that my usefulness will greatly depend upon your prayers for me. Sisters, pray for me."

Conditions in Orumiyeh, Iran shocked her. The filth in homes appalled her. Husbands beat their wives; wives disrespected their husbands; children were reared like cattle; the sick were left to die alone. Despite her homesickness, Fidelia took on the responsibility of founding and managing a girl's boarding school. Fifteen years later, she was still in charge of the school, which had slowly grown to forty pupils. She had had to convince the villagers to allow girls to remain single long enough to get an education. By freely offering her nursing skills, she won friends. However, her health and eyesight weakened to the point she had to quit. The forty-two-year-old woman prepared to return to America in 1858. Then she took stock of what she had accomplished. When she arrived in Persia, she did not know a single woman who was a Christian. When she left, she knew 93, most of whom had been her pupils.

In the few years remaining to her life, she taught at Mount Hope, imparting the faith lessons she had learned. In spite of a nervous breakdown and failing health, she wrote a book on Persian women, another on Mount Holyoke and Recollections of Mary Lyon. The last was printed after her death. She died at the age of forty-eight of a disease of her lymph glands.

The Black Knight Satellite

As I mentioned last week, I'm not convinced that the dark satellite photos aren't actually pics of Stealth aircraft that have the capability of entering the upper atmosphere and possibly even space.  That would certainly explain the advanced oxygen systems that are so important for the craft. The video does give a nice summary of the idea "someone else" (a breakaway civilization, Nazi scientists?) has put this satellite up well before Sputnik.   As always, you decide...

1960 North American System Listening Station picked up a radar echo. They had detected an unknown satellite in orbit. R.Johnson director of the Adler Planetarium said...

The object does not even have the decency to maintain a regular schedule like any other heavenly body or man made object we have ever seen. It appears some nights and some nights it does not.
The satellite was in a polar orbit. It was further revealed that this could not have been the work of either Russia or the USA as they could not achieve polar orbit at the time. The USA named the satellite the Black Knight. A special committee was formed to gather information on the mysterious satellite.. An article was put into time magazine about it.
The satellite was photographed on 3rd September 1960 Long Island and Some seven months after it first appeared on radar image. On 1963 it was seen by an astronaut going into space.
On december 1998 The space craft endeavour was making a journey to the Space Station it recorded several images that many people think to be the Black Knight.

From Skyfall to SPECTRE: 007 Secrets

I'm re-posting this, but considering the attention the latest movie "Spectre" in the James Bond series is garnering, it's a worthy read.  Lots of insights behind the simple spy fights to save the world ideals.  Good stuff...

Film poster. Image: Imp Awards.
Film poster. Image: Imp Awards.

By: Jay

I thought it odd the new Bond film will be titled SPECTRE, as I have recently written an article about how the secretive organization from the film mirrors the real cabals and cartels that rule the real world, and in particular the black markets.  Indeed, SPECTRE is presented early on in From Russia with Love with this very feature – they are international, as opposed to SMERSH being Russian, and play nation states off against one another.  Transitioning from the Soviet-affiliated SMERSH in the first Bond novel, Casino Royale, SMERSH transforms into SPECTRE, a formidable “terrorist” organization from the ambiguous East.

It is telling that back in the 50s and 60s Fleming was already predicting the transition from the communist threat to the international terrorist threat – something that gave me the indication that Fleming novels are worth a deeper look. With the recent fiasco that is, in my analysis, a staged marketing trick, Sony claims to have been hacked by North Korea and had the SPECTRE script leaked, as well as the “hacker terrorists” threatening 9/11 style attacks on theaters (?) that play Franco and Rogen’s The Interview.
Casino Royale Ca$h Options
I suspect more is at work, given the plot of Skyfall surrounded a former Mi6 operative, Mr. Silva (Javier Bardem), playing a hell-bent hacker intent on wreaking vengeful havoc on M (Judy Dench) and all of Her Majesty’s Secret Service.   It is surely not coincidence that in Skyfall Silva has “back door” technology that brings to mind PROMIS software or the recent hubbub involving NSA spying and Snowden.  With these recent news events in mind, an analysis of Skyfall is overdue.  In the reboot of Casino Royale, we saw Bond engaged in a bout with an associate of what we can assume will be SPECTRE, the infamous LeChiffre, and in my analysis of Casino Royale, I noted as follows concerning the real associations that can be made between LeChiffre’s secret organization and the real cartels that run our world:

“In the beginning (of the Casino Royale novel), however, Bond is not after SMERSH, but a wealthy, disfigured rogue who stuck out on his own and created a “fifth column” from SMERSH, named LeChiffre.  LeChiffre translates as “the cypher,” letting us know more is at work here.  LeChiffre, according to Bond writer Ian MacIntyre, was based on British Satanist/occultist Aleister Crowley.
In fact, Ian Fleming, it has recently been claimed by researcher Anthony Masters, was responsible for crafting the plot to lure Rudolph Hess to Scotland based on a bogus astrological chart that tickled Hess’ fancy, created by Crowley. The plot worked, apparently, and Hess parachuted into Scotland and was captured.  LeChiffre, “the cypher,” has curious features, and like many Bond villains a strange sexual appetite and fixation, in the same vein as Crowley.”

And in regard to put options and dirty financial dealings before 9/11 we can see a curious parallel:
"You've got mail! Inbox: Blofeld (1)
“You’ve got mail! Inbox: Blofeld (1) Image:

“While LeChiffre funds an uprising, he simultaneously makes a call to his broker to sell a million puts on Skyfleet, an amorphous airline.  We get the impression LeChiffre plans a terror event that will in some way benefit his selling of the put options.  In terms of esoteric analysis, this begins to look strikingly like the events prior to 9/11 that those “in the know,” know about.  Prior to the terror events of that day, numerous puts had been placed on United Airline stocks, resulting in much speculation as to clear prior knowledge on the part of many in the power structure.  As you can see from this mainstream report, the establishment blames “rogue traders.”  Absurdly, the report purports the laughable line that the retard phony terrorists lurking in caves in Afghanistan were the masterminds behind not only the amazingly complex black operation of 9/11, but also the put options and insider trading.  Why, Al Qaeda is virtually omnipotent and omnipresent!  And in the narrative of Casino Royale, that is exactly what LeChiffre attempts to do, as he has engineered a bombing to occur on the release of a new prototype plane to be unveiled by Skyfleet.”

Quantum of No Solace

Moving to the sequel in the rebooted series, Quantum of Solace, alchemy comes to the fore in Bond’s failed attempt to “bond” with the feminine.  Quantum is the idea of matter or quantity or prima materia, and for Bond, a bit of peace and solace is never attained – primarily because he is a programmed killer, and the final betrayal of Vesper Lynd in Casino can only bring forth a cold, “The bitch is dead” from a unremorseful 007.  This is crucial for understanding Fleming’s novels, as they are just as littered with esoteric images as the films.  Quantum of Solace is a Fleming short story about Bond, but it is not like the film, aside from Bond’s inability to permanently pair with any babes (outside of getting laid).  So, alchemically we saw the Quantum villains have names that are colors, Mr. White, Mr. Green, etc.

Beaton Burned George Wishart as Heretic

Beaton Burned George Wishart as Heretic
On this day, March 1, 1546, soldiers from St. Andrews Castle ushered George Wishart to his place of death. Some beggars at the roadside pleaded with him for alms as he passed, but he replied that with his hands tied, he could give them nothing. He might have added that he had already given away all his money the day he was taken to trial.

The executioner lit the fire and hung sacks of gunpowder around the victim. Wishart knelt to ask God for mercy on himself and forgiveness for his persecutors. Touched, the executioner pleaded for pardon and Wishart gave it. Turning to the crowd, he urged them not to be offended with the gospel because of the end that had overtaken him.

"Had I taught men's doctrine, I had gotten great thanks by men; but for the word's sake and the true gospel, which was given to me by the grace of God, I suffer this day by men, not sorrowfully, but with a glad heart and mind," he said. He was fixed to the stake and burned alive.

Wishart was a reformer.  Acting on ordination given to him in England, he preached in Scotland. When church doors were closed to him, he spoke in the fields. Calling all men to repentance, he also preached that only those practices taught by the Bible were binding on them.

Opposed to Wishart was Cardinal Beaton, a cruel and proud man who lived openly with a mistress and was despised by the people. He once disgraced himself at a cathedral door vying for precedence with another churchman. As the two quarreled, their followers shoved each other and tore off one another's vestments. By contrast, when Beaton sent a priest to assassinate Wishart, Wishart subdued the man and saved him from the fury of the crowd.

After his arrest, Wishart's accusers charged him with teaching heresy. He replied, "Since the time I came into this realm, I taught nothing but the ten commandments of God, the twelve articles of the faith, and the prayer of the Lord in the mother tongue. Moreover, in Dundee, I taught the epistle of St. Paul to the Romans." Other charges were that he denied we should pray to the saints and that confession to a priest does not absolve us. In reply to each charge, he showed from scripture the example and teaching of Jesus and the apostles.

Wishart's execution set in motion a train of events that changed Scotland. It was just one more incident aggravating popular resentment against the Roman Church. The people knew Wishart to be a godly man. Hotheads assassinated Beaton. John Knox, an associate of Wishart, became their chaplain and eventually led the Scottish reformation. The Roman Church was overthrown and the Presbyterian brought in.

The Coming 360 Day Year Predicted in Revelation

This is interesting hypothesizing on the 360 day/year issue regarding prophecies at the end of this current age.  Which of course seems pretty close to us.  This is one possible answer to the roughly 5 day difference between our years and those at the end of the age...

Everyone knows there are 365 days in a year—except, seemingly, the Bible... In both Genesis and Revelation, there are 360 days in a year and 30 days in all months. You won’t find the 365 day year and variable length months we all know today. Does this mean the Bible is an inaccurate book (as skeptics believe)? Not in the least. Read on to find out the little-known calendar secret of ancient history from Genesis and also Revelation’s hidden prophecy about earth’s change to a 360 day year because of a global catastrophe—before the rapture.\

One Tribulation, Three Lengths?

The Book of Revelation contains many insights and predictions to encourage, thrill and scare you. Some are plain and obvious; others are subtle and hidden from most, only to be found by the few inspired to dig deeper (Dan 12:4, 9-10; Rev 1:1-3). For example, that an evil beast-like ruler will dominate the entire earth (Rev 13:7) for the last 42 months of this age (Rev 13:5) is plain and easy to understand. That a major change to earth's orbit is predicted by this and related numbers is not obvious at all. What numbers? Curiously, there are three different time lengths implied for the great tribulation found among six accounts of activities taking place then:
  • 3½ Years Daniel 9:27 tells us that the Abomination of Desolation and ceasing of the daily oblation will happen in the "middle" of the 70th week (or final 7 year period) not in the beginning of it. Jesus also says at the time of the Abomination of Desolation that it will be urgent to head to the place of safety (Mt 24:15) as "great tribulation" follows it (Mt 24:21).
    Half of 7 years = 3½ years.

    Daniel 7:25 says that the Little Horn (Antichrist) will speak against God and oppress the holy ones for a time, (pair of) times, and half of time or 1 + 2 + ½ = 3½ years

    Revelation 12:14 says that the Woman is protected from Satan for the same amount of "times" (3½) as the Little Horn oppresses = 3½ years.
  • 42 Months
    Revelation 11:2 says that Gentile armies will trample Jerusalem for 42 months.

    Revelation 13:5-7 says the Beast (Antichrist) will blaspheme God and conquer the saints for 42 months.
  • 1260 Days
    Revelation 11:3 says that the Two Witnesses prophesy during this same period for 1260 days.
In other words, the 1260 days of the Two Witnesses is the same 42 months that the Temple Mount is trampled while the Little Horn/Beast speaks against God and oppresses the saints (Rev 11:1-3=Dan 7:25=Rev 13:5). It is also the same 3½ years that the righteous "Woman" is protected in the wilderness (Rev 12:14). All these events relate to the tribulation when the Antichrist continues for "a time, (pair of) times, and half a time" as Daniel 7:25 says. Is this consistent repeated length of 3½ years for the tribulation surprising to you? I can appreciate if it is as most Christians have been taught that the tribulation or great tribulation is seven years long." However, as you can see, the only time "seven years" is mentioned in connection with the great tribulation is for entire seven year 70th week. The great tribulation is only the second half of that. The first half is not called "the tribulation" also but has another name given by Jesus: the "beginning of birth pains/sorrows" (Mt 24:8; Mk 13:8). By the way, if you doubt that a basic math error of this kind could really creep into Christian doctrine, then consider how there are not "three days and three nights" (Mt 12:4) between a "Good Friday crucifixion" and an Easter Sunday resurrection!

The Hidden Prediction in Great Tribulation Lengths

So, why do Daniel and Revelation give us three different measurements of length for the same time period when all that was necessary to establish the length is to use one measurement such as "three and one half years?" Good question. The answer will begin to take shape once we do a little math on the numbers above:
  • 1260 days ÷ 3.5 years = 360 days per year
  • 1260 days ÷ 42 months = 30 days per month
Obviously, this does not match our current cosmology of:
  • 365.2422 days per year.
  • 29.531 days per lunation. The Hebrews used lunar months, or the cycle from new moon to new moon. This is reflected in the Hebrew word for month (chodesh) meaning also moon, similar to how the etymology of "month" is related to the moon.
It is also a mismatch of both the (fixed, precalculated) Rabbinic Jewish and (observed, lunar-agricultural) Karaite calendars of today. Both of these calendars have 29 day months mixed in with 30 day months instead of consistent 30 day months. Since this amounts to around only 354 (not 360) days per year, every two or three years a 13th or leap month (Adar Bet) must be added to intercalate the calendar (keep it in sync with the seasons).

Terror Experts: ISIS Video Depicting Egyptian Execution Footage ‘Faked’

So the latest Youtube sensation, ISIS, is faking videos?  What a shocker!  Okay, realizing it's a western intelligence construct, I guess we shouldn't be surprised at all...

Guest Post: Shawn Helton21st Century Wire 

Terror experts have ruled that ISIS video footage appearing to show the executions of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians as being fake…

According to Florida-based Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium, the 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians purported to have been decapitated in the video entitled “Signed With Blood: To The Nation Of The Cross,” was ruled to have been ‘staged’ due to the excessive anomalies seen in the dramatic 5 minute film.

Fake terror & propaganda

In a report this week at 21WIRE, prior to experts releasing their conclusion about the recent ISIS video production, I was able to outline many of the film’s irregularities and inconsistencies – proving that the film was indeed heavily orchestrated for maximum effect.
The overly produced video by ISIS media arm Al Hayat Media Center, was in fact an expensive looking affair, producing a professionally done film with heavy post production, subliminally arresting the viewer with deceptive propaganda.

In an article appearing today in the Daily Mail, terror experts and horror film professionals, weighed in on the recently staged ISIS video. Some of the video was also believed to have been shot on a ‘green screen’ with the water background added in post production.

Veryan Khan, editorial director of the Florida-based Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium told Fox News:

“The Islamic State’s manipulation of their high-production videos has become commonplace.”

William Sawtrey, 1st Lollard Martyr

William Sawtrey, 1st Lollard Martyr
In 1399, the first time that William Sawtrey was arrested on charges of heresy, he went to prison until he broke down and gave up his beliefs. After he was freed, however, he felt as if he had betrayed Christ. The English priest from St. Margaret's in Lynn, Norfolk, found employment in London.
William was one of many laymen and priests who accepted the teachings of John Wycliffe. These believers were known as Lollards. Wycliffe said that the church of his day had corrupted the plain teaching of the Bible. He made a translation of the Bible in English so that all the people could understand God's word for themselves.

Alarmed by Wycliffe's teachings, England passed a law which made burning the penalty for "heresy." Archbishop Thomas Arundel ordered William to appear at St. Paul's on February 12, 1401 and give an account of his teachings. Arundel questioned William closely.

This time, William Sawtrey stood firm. He had said, "Instead of adoring the cross on which Christ suffered, I adore Christ who suffered on it." He stood behind those words now and it became one of the charges against him by persecutors who considered it proper to bow before crucifixes.

However, it was his beliefs about the mass that finally got him condemned. He agreed that the bread of the Eucharist after consecration was indeed the bread of life, but insisted it was just bread all the same. Roman teaching says it really becomes Christ's flesh, so he was considered a heretic.

William also held that it was a better use of time to preach to the lost than to recite certain prayers. He said that money spent on pilgrimages to save one's soul would be better spent helping the poor. The independent-thinking priest also said men were more worthy of adoration than angels.

Because of his answers, he was indicted. He answered each charge in the indictment with scriptures. Arundel questioned him for three hours on his interpretation of the mass. The archbishop tried to convince William to change his mind, or at least to accept the decision of church authorities. William refused.

On this day, February 26, 1401, his sentence was issued. William was condemned as a relapsed heretic. Under the new law, this meant he would burn. Through seven steps called "degradation" he was removed from being a priest and handed over to the secular authorities to die.

Using the defenses at his disposal, William appealed to the king and Parliament. After his appeal was denied, he was burned to death at Smithfield in front of a crowd of spectators.
He was the first "Lollard" martyr in England.

Dr. Michael Lake Examines The Son Of Perdition: Part One

In my new book, The Shinar Directive, I connect the Son of Perdition with the historic figure of Nimrod within the Word of God.   Nimrod’s directive to both draw all men away from God and possibly launch a war on Heaven itself drew an immediate and personal response from the Almighty.  Nimrod’s directive did not die with the confusing of the languages; it was only postponed.  Since the time of Nimrod, the Mystery Religions have been laboring under the cloak of secrecy to see his directive fulfilled.   The Luciferian Elite are committed to creating the proper conditions on planet Earth for the return of their beloved despotic king, the Son of Perdition. To gain a better understanding of this Luciferian king, I decided to examine Chapter 2 of Second Thessalonians for myself to see if there were clues unnoticed by researchers that preceded this generation.  As we draw closer to the revealing of the Son of Perdition, the sorcerer’s cloak of mystery grows thinner.  It is my desire to take the present day truths that are being revealed by the Holy Spirit in our generation to pierce even deeper through the Babylonian haze that surrounds this Man of Sin.

John Chrysostom, Golden Tongue

John Chrysostom, Golden Tongue
Chrysostom resisted, pleaded. The Imperial messengers were deaf to his pleas. They had their secret orders. He was coming with them whether he wished it or not. Outside Antioch they transferred him into a royal chariot and rode for Constantinople.

There, in the capital of the Roman Empire he learned the truth. He was to be Bishop of the imperial city, a position he never wanted but for which many others were fiercely vying. His heart must have sunk as he realized that the other candidates would form implacable resentments against him. But what could he say? The imperial apparatus had brought about his elevation and he was helpless before it. History must play itself out. He would preach with the same authority as he always had. So on this day, February 26, 398, John Chrysostom unwillingly became bishop of Constantinople.
Who was John and why was he in such demand? Born in Antioch, Syria, he had been reared by a widowed mother who taught him Christianity. But John intended to go into law. His mother, trusting God for the outcome, sent him to study with Libanius, the great pagan rhetorician of the day. But John's conscience troubled him. Lawyers must constantly take oaths. His mother had taught him oath-taking was wrong. Furthermore, through the influence of saintly Bishop Meletius, the young man was attracted to Christ.

Converted and baptized, John resisted becoming a bishop. Instead he spent four years in the desert, and two as a hermit in Bible study, during which he practiced austerities. Filled with scripture knowledge, he finally agreed to be made a deacon in 381 and priest in 386. (Unfortunately, some of those sermons were also antisemetic.)

Less than a year later he rose to special attention. A tax increase threw the citizens of on Antioch into a frenzy. Rioting, they tore down imperial statues. While Bishop Flavian rushed to Constantinople to plead for mercy with the emperor, who was expected to take awful revenge, Chrysostom preached a series of sermons to the terrified populace. As they awaited the imperial decision, death stared them in the face. Chrysostom's fierce attacks on sin cut their consciences and many sought the peace of confession and repentance. Fortunately, the Emperor pardoned the city.

John's brilliant preaching had made him famous.* His nickname "Chrysostom" means "Golden tongue." Eloquent preaching won him the designation. When the court in Constantinople could not agree on any of the rival candidates for the empty see, the court turned to John. If the people of Antioch had known that John was being taken in 398, they might have rioted again for his straight talk made him popular with them.

In Constantinople, Chrysostom continued his attacks on sin, especially on greed and the accumulation of wealth. The Empress Eudoxia became angry when John rebuked her in person for depriving a widow of her vineyard. Eudoxia suspected that John was directing other sermons at her. The emperor also became unhappy with John whom he felt had been raised to his position by court intrigue. The imperial couple teamed up with Patriarch Theophilus of Alexandria to depose John on trumped up charges through a synod of enemy bishops in 403. These enemies exiled John, but the people of Constantinople were so enraged that the terrified empress quickly ordered him brought back.
However, when John spoke out against excessive ceremonies in honor of a new statue erected to the empress, Eudoxia became so furious she ordered the bishops to exile John again. This time it was permanent. He died on a forced march that was designed to take him even further away from the court which had made him bishop in the first place against his will.

*We are sad to report his sermons, so good in most respects, were sometimes antisemetic.

CERN Physicist Amit Goswami: We Have No Idea What We're Doing…

If you check physics articles on occasion you may have noticed that major names in the field of scientists have radically differing ideas about what's going on...even about what constitutes reality.  Now one of the founders of CERN admits that they don't know what they are doing.  Reality is rarely what we read in the news...

Overhead view of the Large Hadron Collider

Now, this one was shared by a lot of you who, like me, have been following the developments at CERN's large hadron collider in Geneva with a bit of a jaundiced eye. First we had the sort-of announcement of the discovery of the so-called "god particle," the Higgs boson, allegedly the particle in the quantum pantheon for imparting mass to everything else. I say "pantheon" here because it strikes me as extremely odd and curious that physics seems somehow trapped in the old this-god-does-that-function paradigm: we have gods of "wisdom, fertility, and (pick a function)" and this particle-does-mass and that particle does that... and spin moments, and directionality, and quarks and "colors,"...

I'm reminded a bit of the old nominalist-versus-realist debates of the late Middle Ages. But anyway, back to the Higgs. Then the discovery was sort-of retracted, then sort-of confirmed.Then we even heard, briefly, of some sort of "discovery" of something with "superluminal" velocities, but no, that's impossible because Pope Einstein said so. Then we had the stories coming out of how some physicists were actually toying with the idea of recasting their equations entirely without the notion of dimensionality, allegedly, so the story would seem, because of the High Weirdness they're finding when they crank up their alchemical machine at Geneva. When I heard that one I had to do a double-take, for the idea of modern mathematical physics without dimensionality in the equations would seem to throw the whole last 200 years of physics into a cocked hat. Maxwell, of course, had his quaternions with its scalar potentials, but even he had to get around to dimensionality at some point. Einstein's general relativity is a highly dimensional theory, as are the various early 20th century stabs at unified field theories from Kaluza-Klein to Vaclav Hlavaty and on down even to modern string and m-theory. It's as if they are suggesting that the whole of mathematical physics be recast as a theory of Nothing with lots and lots of scalars and zero-sum vectors (or are those the same thing? One can imagine David Bohm asking such a question).

Then along comes Indian theoretical physicist Amit Goswami, who, fed up with the underlying Cartesian-materialist-epiphenomenalism of it all, just bluntly proposes in Leibnizian fashion that consciousness - that's right, immaterial, incorporeal, metaphysical consciousness, Mind itself, as it were - is the underlying bedrock of physics, and not a bunch of particles emerging from an endless Dirac sea of ...well... nothing once again. Needless to say, his views are controversial.
Well, now Dr. Goswami has joined Stephen Hawking in warning about CERN's Large Hadron collider, fearing that at some point, something catastrophic might happen. In fact, he goes further, in this article, by saying "We (physicists) have no ******* idea what we're doing:"

“We Honestly Have No ******* Idea What We’re Doing”, Admits Leading Quantum Physicist
Now, in case you missed the salient points, here they are once again:

"The University of Oregon professor warned that the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, could potentially wipe out the entire planet if the project is not put to a halt.
“'Seriously, when myself, Higgs and Ben (Benjamin Lockspeiser CERN’s first president) first pitched the idea, we never thought it would get funding. It was gonna cost billions for Christs sake,' he recalled. “'**** knows what the thing does – no one does. Firing particles at each other at the speed of light can’t end well. I’m just worried now we took the joke too far'." (Emphasis added)

The Reforming Raven, Anthony Corvinus

The Reforming Raven, Anthony Corvinus
Anthony Rabe was just seventeen when Luther posted his 95 theses. The boy was born at Warburg castle on this day, February 27, 1501. Like many humanist scholars, he adopted a Latin form in place of his birth name, which meant Raven. And so we know him as Anthony Corvinus.

Anthony became a monk. At first, he wanted nothing to do with Luther's new ideas. But reading the great Reformer's works and observing his bold stand at the Diet of Worms, changed his mind. He even sent Luther a drink of beer for his refreshment! Anthony was ousted from his monastery because of his Lutheran leanings. He became an enthusiastic supporter of the Reformation, preaching and organizing in Goettingen, Nordheim, Hildesheim, and Calenberg.

The task he had set himself was a dangerous one. Reformation preachers were often hunted men. Threats of heavy penalties hung over their heads.

He won the confidence of Landgrave Philip of Hesse. (A landgrave is a high level count.) During most of the 1530s, Anthony was at the landgrave's side. Philip consulted him on many occasions, so that Anthony attended almost all of the important conferences of the early Reformation.

Philip granted Anthony permission to preach in Goettingen and Hanover. Efforts to bring the Gospel there had resulted in the preachers being hunted. Anthony enjoyed considerable success.

The Duchess Elizabeth, governing for her under-age son, Erich, supported the Reformation. She wrote Luther for assistance. He sent Anthony. This cleared the way for the Gospel in the southern Lower Saxony. Anthony brought the Reformation to Northeim, which had seemed a stronghold of Catholicism.

However, the Duke of Goettingen-Kalenberg sided with Rome. Anthony opposed the Augsburg Interim, a temporary doctrinal formula arranged by Emperor Charles. The Interim made a few concessions to the Lutheran position, such as allowing the clergy to marry and permitting the cup as well as the bread in communion. But for the most part, Lutherans did not feel it went far enough. As far as they were concerned, the real issues were penance, confession and the doctrine of justification. Angered by Anthony's resistance, the Duke threw him into prison. For almost three years, he suffered there.

His health broke. He died in April 1553, "a true and faithful Lutheran Christian" just a few months after his release. His motto in his last years was, "My hope is Christ."

Monsters Beneath Our Feet



Nick Redfern

Over the years, I have collected a number of very weird stories on one particular subject that doesn’t necessarily always get the coverage it deserves – regardless of whether the subject actually has any merit to it or not! It’s the issue of strange, humanoid creatures living deep below the UK, whether in caverns, caves, huge tunnels, and/or old and disused mines. And we’re talking about the modern era: the 20th and 21st centuries.

Yeah, I know: it sounds like something straight out of H.P. Lovecraft. And, perhaps, that’s all it is. The fact is, however, there are more than a few stories out there that suggest – just maybe – there is something to the controversy. And I stress the maybe! We only have to look at the phenomenal interest that the claims of Richard Shaver still provoke to this day, to recognize that the Human Race has a fascination for secrets and tales of the underground kind.

Indeed, it’s almost as if each and every one of us possesses a kind of vague, inherited memory of times long gone when the under-dwellers were all-too-real, and not just perceived as the stuff of legend and folklore. That may also be the reason why Mac Tonnies’ book, The Cryptoterrestrials caught the attention of so many people when it was published back in 2010.

As for the stories I have personally come across, well, they are a strange bunch, to be sure. And here are just three of what amounts to around thirty or thereabouts.

Before his passing in 2007, Frank Wiley, who spent his entire working life in the British Police Force, told me a bizarre and unsettling tale of his personal memories and investigations of a number of very weird killings on the London Underground, always late at night, in a particular period of time that covered 1967 to 1969. The killings, Wiley said, occurred on at least three stations, and were hushed up by the police, under the guise of being the unfortunate results of particularly vicious, late night muggings.

Theodosius Issued an Edict that Stopped the Arian Movement in the Early Church

I don't think many realize how close the Arian idea came to becoming the dominant idea in the early church.  Considering how quickly the "Catholic" church became corrupted, as early as the 6th or 7th century, it may have simply been a different kind of error that had to be historically dealt with.  Of course the Arian idea is still popular today among groups like the Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses.

Theodosius Issued an Edict
There are many turning points in church history. One of the most significant is little known by most Christians.

After Constantine's conversion he legitimized Christianity. Soon thereafter Christians in the Roman empire divided between Arianism (which denies the divinity of Christ) and Trinitarianism (which sees God as three persons in one being). The first universal church council, held at Nicea in 325, resisted Arianism; all but three of its Bishops voted for a trinitarian creed.*

Shortly after he came to the Imperial throne, Theodosius ended the Arian dispute by the simple expedient of issuing an edict. On this day February 27, 380 (some historians say 381) this edict commanded everyone to be a Christian--but not just any kind of Christian. A Catholic Christian, it said, was one who held that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one Godhead and equal in majesty. This, of course, was the position of the Nicene Creed. Theodosius' decision was the result of his upbringing: he was reared in a Christian home, perhaps the first emperor to enjoy that distinction. (His behavior wasn't always Christian, however, as the premeditated massacre of thousands of civilians at Thessalonica showed in 390).

The following year, Theodosius issued another edict specifically requiring worship of the one God according to the Nicene Creed. Theodosius deposed Demophilus of Constantinople an Arian bishop and replaced him with a trinitarian.

These laws (Theodosian Codes 16.1.2 and 16.5.6) are significant for many reasons. They mark the first time the legal code coerced people to become Christians. They made orthodox catholic Christianity the official dogma of the church and suppressed the Arian factions. The laws established a pattern which would become more pronounced as Theodosius' reign progressed of using the apparatus of the state to suppress diversity of religious opinion. The church can only regret that before all was done, people calling themselves Christians persecuted pagans, Arians, Manichees, and Jews. Many of the persecutors did not hold the name Christian out of zeal for Christ, but because it was politically correct.

*Although the trinity is hard to understand, the basis of the doctrine is found repeatedly in scripture, and some maintain that it makes more sense now than when it was first acceptedh, for we now have mathematics which describe multidimensionality. If God is infinite, as Christians teach, he must inhabit dimensions beyond the space-time we know. A trinity is consistent with this.

The Old Cross and the New

By A.W. Tozer

ALL UNANNOUNCED AND MOSTLY UNDETECTED there has come in modern times a new cross into popular evangelical circles. It is like the old cross, but different: the likenesses are superficial; the differences, fundamental.

From this new cross has sprung a new philosophy of the Christian life, and from that new philosophy has come a new evangelical technique-a new type of meeting and a new kind of preaching. This new evangelism employs the same language as the old, but its content is not the same and its emphasis not as before. 

The old cross would have no truck with the world. For Adam's proud flesh it meant the end of the journey. It carried into effect the sentence imposed by the law of Sinai. The new cross is not opposed to the human race; rather, it is a friendly pal and, if understood aright, it is the source of oceans of good clean fun and innocent enjoyment. It lets Adam live without interference. His life motivation is unchanged; he still lives for his own pleasure, only now he takes delight in singing choruses and watching religious movies instead of singing bawdy songs and drinking hard liquor. The accent is still on enjoyment, though the fun is now on a higher plane morally if not intellectually. 

The new cross encourages a new and entirely different evangelistic approach. The evangelist does not demand abnegation of the old life before a new life can be received. He preaches not contrasts but similarities. He seeks to key into public interest by showing that Christianity makes no unpleasant demands; rather, it offers the same thing the world does, only on a higher level. Whatever the sin-mad world happens to be clamoring after at the moment is cleverly shown to be the very thing the gospel offers, only the religious product is better.
The new cross does not slay the sinner, it redirects him. It gears him into a cleaner and jollier way of living and saves his self-respect. To the self-assertive it says, "Come and assert yourself for Christ." To the egotist it says, "Come and do your boasting in the Lord." To the thrill seeker it says, "Come and enjoy the thrill of Christian fellowship." The Christian message is slanted in the direction of the current vogue in order to make it acceptable to the public. 

The philosophy back of this kind of thing may be sincere but its sincerity does not save it from being false. It is false because it is blind. It misses completely the whole meaning of the cross. 

The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. The man in Roman times who took up his cross and started down the road had already said good-by to his friends. He was not coming back. He was going out to have it ended. The cross made no compromise, modified nothing, spared nothing; it slew all of the man, completely and for good. It did not try to keep on good terms with its victim. It struck cruel and hard, and when it had finished its work, the man was no more. 

The race of Adam is under death sentence. There is no commutation and no escape. God cannot approve any of the fruits of sin, however innocent they may appear or beautiful to the eyes of men. God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life. 

That evangelism which draws friendly parallels between the ways of God and the ways of men is false to the Bible and cruel to the souls of its hearers. The faith of Christ does not parallel the world, it intersects it. In coming to Christ we do not bring our old life up onto a higher plane; we leave it at the cross. The corn of wheat must fall into the ground and die. 

We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. 

God offers life, but not an improved old life. The life He offers is life out of death. It stands always on the far side of the cross. Whoever would possess it must pass under the rod. He must repudiate himself and concur in God's just sentence against him. 

What does this mean to the individual, the condemned man who would find life in Christ Jesus? How can this theology be translated into life? Simply, he must repent and believe. He must forsake his sins and then go on to forsake himself. Let him cover nothing, defend nothing, excuse nothing. Let him not seek to make terms with God, but let him bow his head before the stroke of God's stern displeasure and acknowledge himself worthy to die. 

Having done this let him gaze with simple trust upon the risen Saviour, and from Him will come life and rebirth and cleansing and power. The cross that ended the earthly life of Jesus now puts an end to the sinner; and the power that raised Christ from the dead now raises him to a new life along with Christ. 

To any who may object to this or count it merely a narrow and private view of truth, let me say God has set His hallmark of approval upon this message from Paul's day to the present. Whether stated in these exact words or not, this has been the content of all preaching that has brought life and power to the world through the centuries. The mystics, the reformers, the revivalists have put their emphasis here, and signs and wonders and mighty operations of the Holy Ghost gave witness to God's approval. 

Dare we, the heirs of such a legacy of power, tamper with the truth? Dare we with our stubby pencils erase the lines of the blueprint or alter the pattern shown us in the Mount? May God forbid. Let us preach the old cross and we will know the old power. (A. W. Tozer, Man, the Dwelling Place of God, 1966)
