Waves of Synchronicity in the ocean of Time and Space

I have noticed that there are periods of my life when I ride into breathtaking waves of synchronicity, like  the perfect crests of the ocean, and just as exciting and harrowing. It's probably a lot like manic depressive states during the manic highs, because, when it happens, there is a heightened energy and feeling of almost magical thinking.

The past 24 hours has demonstrated to me that these events are life-long, and quite real, because, when I experience them, they happen to whoever is close to me, as well. They become awe struck and confused and aware of the mystery.

This phenomenon can occur with any surrounding events, like being in a crowd, while thinking of peanut butter and jelly, hearing the person next to me discussing it, while a second later, a poster of a pbj sandwich appears. The most frequent example of how this occurs is during television when something I'm doing is instantly reflected in a program I'm watching.

For instance, I was drawing a painting of very vivid and stylized butterflies amidst roses, and I looked up and the program I was watching had a guest, in this case, Marcia Clark, the prosecutor for OJ, who was wearing a shirt almost identical to the picture I was working on, even down to the colors, and flowers. It was pretty weird, and my dad couldn't explain it, either. Before that, there were a half dozen similar coincidences, even with commercials on television. My dad couldn't explain them all, and then, it started happening to him.

He was looking for a good paperback of mine to read, and I recommended "Night" by Elie Weizel, and five minutes later, as her was doing the crossword puzzle in today's paper, the first clue was "Author of "Night""....

Right after that, we were wondering how so many coincidences were happening, when a commercial came on for a new cat food. It showed a short-haired white cat who was identical to my new kitten, and she's an unusual little creature, yet, the cat was her. Before we could remark how odd it was to see such a twin, the commercial had a second cat, who looked identical to "Toy" my tabby. It's just too many odds against the two identical cats appearing together.

All day long, if the TV was on, and I said a keyword to someone, I heard that word being echoed in some way on television.

It's proof (sort of) that all of us are plotted on some perfect matrix, and our existence is in harmony with our universe, and our surroundings. It means that we are caught up in some incredible net, or network, and knowing this, makes me feel very secure. If we're intersecting with the Time/Space continuum, that infers our own immortality or permanence with infinity and most of all, with God. While it's also disconcerting, I choose to see it as a profound blessing, just to know that I'm part of everything surrounding me, and God made it like that to remind me of his perfection and wonderful plan.

Thanks to the LORD, every day there are miracles and blessings.

I am so disillusioned with this world leader, that I'm willing to make the leap.  If he is to wear the final crown of the beast, then let's stop mincing words and political correctness. Let's call it what it is, and at least know what we're dealing with.

This man was virtually unknown a decade ago, and was promoted amongst the ranks of the most elite politicians, with pedigrees, yet, was lifted up on their shoulders as a messianic figure to usher in a new era of equality of health care, and impoverishment of virtually every other value that this country has stood for since it's inception.

As far as a global government, why would we desire to be united with the savages in Afghanistan and Pakistan, or most of the world, whose governments enslave souls and create a culture of desperation and despair, depriving nearly all citizens of hope and equal rights? Other than the chosen few, most of their lives become a day to day battle to simply survive and get food.

The Obama-nation that is emerging in America isn't far behind. China has eclipsed our star, and we are falling rapidly. While natural disasters were plaguing our Midwest, this Obama-nation was kissing the hand of useless royalty in England. Why do we even bother with them? What is royalty if not an abomination? Why are these inbred snobs even respected or sought out, other than historical curiosities whose status is like scandalous pop stars ? They are less than anything, and if England is sentimental about their historical serfdom under vicious tyrants, why are we going backwards into this pit?

Obama-nation is the only President in my lifetime who has not participated in the Christian religion, in any fashion. He did not even put on a respectable show of piety during Easter. YET, he hosts multiple events during Muslim holy days.

 The church he belonged to for 20 years was an abomination, as well, eschewing the Gospel for Marxist liberation theology. It is the nuclear base for the Antichrist, and so, it has spawned this creature who now is leading us into nuclear winter.

Abandoning Israel will mean nuclear war within the next decade.  Make no mistake. ANY Jew or Christian who supports Obama-nation already has a mark upon them, without the subsequent chip. It's time we spread the word.

Remember, the last Antichrist reigns 3.5 years (first term) in relative peace, and it's his last term of 3.5 years when the nuclear holocaust arrives. Be empowered. Know prophecy and the truth will set you free.

Bring it on.

70 years ago, in 1942, the Nazi's instituted the "Final Solution" and I think it's fitting that starting in 2012, the Jews give the world it's "final solution."
I really think it's time that Zion give the world a reason to hate us, once and for all, because, so much blood has been spilled through the centuries, that it isn't fair, and God always, always, always deals the last ironic blow. They won't have to club us over the head with "global warming" another device of theirs, because nuclear winter is coming.

As far as Obama-nation, our goose is cooked with this clown. It's written on the wind and we're reaping the whirlwind. Seek shelter with the only salvation we have left, and in the KING of kings, in Jesus Christ, and the HOPE of his promise to return and redeem us from these demons who raise their whips against our skin.

Pray pray pray my brothers. Look up, for our redemption arrives.
 We'll be leaving soon.

Prayer for Israel

A nuance of the Hebrew religion that I find intriguing is that the day officially begins at sunset, not sunrise. There are layers of spiritual importance to that, for me, but, the Hebrew day is literally from sundown to sundown. It comforts me in a world gone mad, to recognize that nearly everything in God's realm is uniquely different from our reality. Then again, it is often a struggle to deal with two realities, but, an exercise that is constantly referred to, especially in the New Testament.

We are to live in the world, without being worldly. We are to be strangers in a strange land, which isn't always a comfortable existence, but, then again, it establishes hope in a sane paradigm, where YHWH rules, not men.

I start this article on a tangent, not aware of where it will lead me, but, I like being surprised. Let's see where it goes....

Before I get to Israel, which is my theme tonight, I wanted to document my personal life in the past six months, since I've been absent from the web. I had major spinal surgery, and am going back for more of the same. This next one is more intimidating, and I'm very concerned about the recovery period, albeit, the LORD has not yet let me down, or prolonged my suffering. Still, the last one was very painful. I had virtually my entire cervical spine replaced by cages, bolts and rods, and other than a slash across my throat, I was blessed to receive 80% improvement in my symptoms. I can paint and be an artist again, and I've made up for lost time. I spend nearly 12 hours a day creating, and it is a mystical experience. It helps me to transcend any depression and pain that's left.

The LORD sometimes speaks to my prayers when I meditate while I draw or paint. It's glorious.

I love chit-chatting with our LORD, aside from formal intercession and praise. My dad likes to say that God is not concerned with the trivialities of our lives, but, I vigorously disagree. I am encouraged by such exhortations as in 1Thessalonians 5:19- :Pray without ceasing.

I feel like we have a direct line to our Father in heaven, and so far, He has never yet withdrawn his grace.

I used to always pray for the USA, as well as other countries dear to me, like the tragic countries in Africa, where so many of my brothers and sisters are undergoing genocide and persecution that is virtually worse than at any time of history after the First Century.

Now, however, I pray mainly for Israel, for they are on the endangered list.
Christ warned us to observe the fig tree (Israel) blooming, and attend to when the world turns against her, and I believe we are at this exact coordinate in the divine plan.

A strange vision keeps floating behind my fears and presumptions about what will happen, according to prophecy, and in light of the bestial sudden global government and nuclear weaponry.

The visions of Zechariah 12-14 are inescapable to our generation, and I see something written between the lines, or not really written at all, but, implied. Jerusalem is awaiting the Messiah, yet, the vast majority of the Jews do not recognize him, at this time, as the son of man, who was called Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The Muslims of Jerusalem don't believe Christ was the physical manifestation of the invisible Creator of the Universe. The Christians that occupy some old missions there are mainly from arcane orders that do not conform with the grace ascribed in the prototypical "saved" Church of Philadelphia.

In other words, less than a few percent of the inhabitants of this coveted land even understand that Christ is the ONE. How ironic is that? They're each fighting to be the ones possessing the key to the universe, the key of David, the doorway to a portal that leads to God, himself, yet, who is worthy? Who indeed is even looking for Christ to return?

To make a long story short, my vision, is that in that day, when the advent of Christ appears, they will all see New Jerusalem, and receive the understanding of Christ. It says in Zechariah, the Jews will mourn for him, as an only son, and their hearts will finally be circumcised. My vision, or maybe my fantasy and dream is that our brothers, the Arabs in Jerusalem, will also mourn for him, and their hearts will also be converted.

How ironic to dream of Jews and Muslims being united because of Jesus Christ, eh?

Anyway, that's my prayer for Israel, that the Lord will prepare their hearts, and open their minds, eyes and ears, and that there will be a hope for brotherhood, even on the eve of destruction.

When you love and are loved by Christ, you can overcome depression and negativity by daydreaming about love, and the day when we will all be brothers and sisters, children of God, with Christ as our King and High Priest.

Father, in Jesus Christ's Name, I pray that you impart to all lonely, frightened, and bitter souls, sharing unique dreams for them to ponder when everything else seems bleak and hopeless.,

Zec 12:1  The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
Zec 12:2  Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem.
Zec 12:3  And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Zec 12:4  In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
Zec 12:5  And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem [shall be] my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.
Zec 12:6  In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, [even] in Jerusalem.
Zec 12:7  The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify [themselves] against Judah.
Zec 12:8  In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
Zec 12:9  And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
Zec 12:10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.
Zec 12:11  In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

Zec 13:3  And it shall come to pass, [that] when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
Zec 13:4  And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
Zec 13:5  But he shall say, I [am] no prophet, I [am] an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
Zec 13:6  And [one] shall say unto him, What [are] these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, [Those] with which I was wounded [in] the house of my friends.
Zec 13:7  Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man [that is] my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
Zec 13:8  And it shall come to pass, [that] in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off [and] die; but the third shall be left therein.
Zec 13:9  And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people: and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God.

Zec 14:1  Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
Zec 14:2  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Zec 14:3  Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
Zec 14:4  And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which [is] before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
Zec 14:5  And ye shall flee [to] the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, [and] all the saints with thee.
Zec 14:6  And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light shall not be clear, [nor] dark:
Zec 14:7  But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at evening time it shall be light.
Zec 14:8  And it shall be in that day, [that] living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
Zec 14:9  And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
Zec 14:10  All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and [from] the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.
Zec 14:11  And [men] shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
Zec 14:12  And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
Zec 14:13  And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.
Zec 14:14  And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.
Zec 14:15  And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
Zec 14:16  And it shall come to pass, [that] every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Zec 14:17  And it shall be, [that] whoso will not come up of [all] the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
Zec 14:18  And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that [have] no [rain]; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Zec 14:19  This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
Zec 14:20  In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD'S house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
Zec 14:21  Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

The Talented Casey Anthony

In 1955, Patricia Highsmith created a unique anti-hero named Ripley. Most people are familiar with his presence in modern movies, especially the stellar "The Talented Mr. Ripley" starring Matt Damon, who did a spectacular job in portraying this sympathetic psychopathic serial killer.

In the original novels (it was a trilogy), Ripley was different than any other character before him. His triumphant talent was in his extraordinary ability to lie so convincingly, that he beguiled and was was enriched by his victims, and eluded justice, becoming more and more successful and respectable.

Unlike the character in the novel, Casey is hardly escaping from her treachery, but, on the other hand, even Ripley's character lacked her phenomenal ability to lie, and maintain that posture under all circumstances.

Ultimately, unlike the fictional Ripley, Casey will be imprisoned, probably for life, but, no one has ever encountered anyone quite like Miss Anthony.
Her ability to expand on lies is truly prodigious, and almost awesome.
She is not a stupid woman. In fact, what sends chills down my spine is how cold she is, and how I believe if she escaped punishment for Caylee's death that I have no doubt that she would have continued to kill those who got in her way, or who could enrich her. I believe Cindy and Lee and George could have been her next victims. She seems to really hate them most of all, and even to the degree that since they adored Caylee, by killing her, she could disrupt and destroy their lives.

I feel heartbroken when I think of George and Cindy, her poor parents. Watching her mom break down this week, caused me to cry for fifteen minutes. I've stayed with this case for three years, and was not always sympathetic to Cindy, but, things have changed, and my understanding of her tragic circumstances fills me with immeasurable admiration and sympathy. I pray for her every day.

I feel almost sick when I consider George Anthony. I do not believe he was ever abusive or inappropriate with Casey, and if anything, he was too permissive and spoiled her. He has his own demons, but, so do most of us. We don't have our dirty laundry, or worst moments paraded out on a world stage for scrutiny. This man is not perfect, but, because he is flawed, yet, innocent of these scurrilous bogus accusations from a rotten defense strategy, I feel the deepest sympathy. This defense will not only fail, but, probably provoke the jury in the end. Ironically, if anything saves Casey from death, it will be people fearing putting the Anthonys through more misery and loss. I know that's how I would feel on that jury.

My most fervent prayers go out to George, and I hope George and Cindy have some way of feeling the prayers that millions of people have for their benefit. I know that when many people pray for you, the LORD allows you to experience them. It's an indescribable thing.

When my brother was dying, congregations from literally all denominations and religions had him on their prayer lists. One Sunday morning, God allowed me to witness the magnificent  harmony of prayers, and it was something that cannot be described easily. The Bible describes it like incense rising before the throne of the LORD, and it wasn't like that, yet, it was ethereally like an intangible essence that can't be explained any other way.

Holy Father, in the NAME of Jesus Christ, please watch over Cindy and George Anthony, during this trial, and this period when their deepest sorrow and shame is broadcast as a reality show for the world to view.

 Let them feel the love and support of the many people who care about them and seek intercession on their behalf. Let them feel comforted in some way that will strengthen them. Let them feel there is hope. Let them know they are loved. Let them start to heal, and accept the reality of Casey, without torturing their own souls any longer. I ask that they are given angels, and feel their precious Caylee's presence, Give them hope and let them know that they will see Caylee again. Let these people have an image of Caylee running free amongst the flowers and butterflies of paradise, where she will greet them again.

I cannot ever imagine their pain and misery. All I can do is ask our Lord to protect them and most of all, to give them wisdom and peace. They will have to come to terms with the talented Miss. Anthony, but, let them not blame themselves any longer.

Give the twelve people on the jury wisdom and truth. Foil the lies of the devil and the defense and the defendant and let them look like the liars that they are, without the smoke and mirrors, and let all the red herrings stink up the court until the only escape is common sense and truth.

Let the American people embrace the Anthonys and give them some consolation after so much tragedy and loss. Let our LORD be with them all their days, giving them the strength that can only come from God.
Bless them, and if possible, save Casey Anthony, while she endures prison for the next 60 years. Let her come to God, and leave the devil, the father of lies. I pray for her salvation. I ask that she die to lies and has an epiphany that will allow her to escape Hell and damnation, to once again see the face of Caylee Marie, who, on some level, she may still love.

Thank you Father, in the Name of Christ, that YOUR will be done.
