Angels: Created With Free Will

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels, Creation with tags , , , , , , , on June 29, 2019 by paulthepoke

aggelos/ἄγγελος: In the Greek, an angel or messenger, generally a supernatural messenger from God conveying news or behests from God to men.

malak: In the Hebrew, a messenger. -Strong’s Concordance

What does the Bible have to say about Angels? God’s word does not give an account about how angels were created. The Bible does not say when angels were created. But we do know that angels were created before the universe and humanity. 

Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 

The context of this verse is a line of questioning directed to Job by God. Job is being asked if he was present prior to the creation of the world. God is explaining to Job that He laid the foundation and measured it out. Then God informs Job that the “morning stars” and the “sons of God” observed this event, sang, and shouted. “Sons of God” is an idiomatic expression for angels in the Old Testament. “Morning stars” is a term for angels. These beings saw God create the earth.

We do know that God, specifically Christ, created the angels.

Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.

Psalm 148:2, 5 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded and they were created.

In comparing angels to resurrected humanity, Jesus tells us that angels are immortal and they do not marry. Apparently, marriage is not intended in God’s program for angels.

Luke 20:35-36. But those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; for they cannot even die anymore, because they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

Psalm 148:6 He has also established them (angels and host) forever and ever; He has made a decree which will not pass away.

Matthew 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

There are two groups of angels, the elect and those fallen. There are those elect angels who follow God the Father and Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 5:21 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels, to maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality.

1 Kings 22:19 Micaiah said, “Therefore, hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left.

Psalm 103:2 Bless the LORD, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word!

The fallen angels are those who are evil and follow Satan. Of the fallen angels, there are two groups. Some of the fallen are incarcerated. 

2 Peter 2:4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment… 

Some of the fallen angels are currently loose and free. These angels are currently under the leadership of Satan.

Revelation 12:7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back.

Granted the book of Jasher is an extra Biblical source, but there is an interesting note in regards to the ratio of fallen angels who are incarcerated and those who are not. Noah made the following comment when praying to God about angels and demons. These comments indicated 90% are bound and only 10% are free to maneuver under the will of Satan.

Jasher, Book of Jubilees 10: 9, 11 And He said: Let the tenth part of them remain before him, and let nine parts descend into the place of condemnation.’ And we did according to all His words: all the malignant evil ones we bound in the place of condemnation and a tenth part of them we left that they might be subject before Satan on the earth.

Angels will ultimately be judged by humanity.

1 Corinthians 6:3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?

Humanity was not created to go to a fiery end. Man was originally created perfect and eternal. Hell was designed for fallen angels. These are the words of Jesus Himself.

Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels…'”

Dear Christian: Forgiveness

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gospel, Michael Stone with tags , , on June 27, 2019 by paulthepoke

Dear Christian,
Has it ever occurred to you that your difficulty forgiving others is because you don’t really believe that you have been forgiven?

Forgiveness Is For You

God cannot lie. If you have truly accepted Jesus the Christ as your personal Savior and Lord, eternal life, total healing, total deliverance, and total forgiveness are already yours in Jesus’ name. Receive those gifts! Go ahead!

Forgive others just as Jesus has forgiven you.
“If you forgive others for their transgressions, your Father in heaven will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.”
Matthew 6:14-15

Your debt is already paid in full. Jesus paid that debt. The wages of sin is death, and He paid that price in your place.

BE FREE, IN JESUS’ NAME!

Bahrain: Peace to Prosperity Workshop, June 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on June 25, 2019 by paulthepoke

June 25, 2019, Manama, Bahrain: Under the guise of Jared Kushner, the Peace to Prosperity work shop has begun. Kushner has dubbed the peace plan as the “opportunity of the century”.

Kushner opened the conference with a speech.

“Today is not about political issues. The goal of this workshop is to begin thinking about these challenges in a new way. To work together to develop a concrete plan to try to achieve it. Imagine a new reality in the Middle East … Imagine a bustling tourist center in Gaza and the West Bank. Imagine people and goods flowing securely throughout the region as people become more prosperous. This is not a stretch, it is the historic legacy of the Middle East.” -Jared Kushner

See the link below courtesy of i24 News for Kushner’s complete comments. The speech is a little over 10 minutes.

Ezekiel 7:19 They cast their silver into the streets, and their gold is like an unclean thing. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it. For it was the stumbling block of their iniquity.

Zephaniah 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them on the day of the LORD’S wrath; and all the earth will be devoured in the fire of His jealousy, for He will make a complete end, indeed a terrifying one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.

Kushner Unveils Economic Portion of Middle East Peace Plan, June 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Gaza Strip/Philistia, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 22, 2019 by paulthepoke

The economic details of the Middle East Peace plan were released by Senior White House Adviser Jared Kushner. The plan calls for $50 billion to be sent to Middle East countries. $28 billion are scheduled to go to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Details of the plan break down which country gets how much and specific projects are named. Currently, the plan is expected to take 10 years to implement.

The plan is being compared to the Marshall Plan for western Europe after World War II.

“One of the things that they did successfully (Marshall Plan) is that they didn’t just give aid but they infused money into the private sector and they created an environment in which businesses could thrive and capital could be invested. This is a similar notion.”

“If you can also get that whole region starting to lift, and if you can get a quicker flow of goods and people in all the different areas that are necessary in industry instead of bullets and munitions and war, then I think that will really lead to a big increase in investment in the area and more jobs and better quality of life and hopefully more peace along with it.” -Jared Kushner

The White House communicated via Twitter the plan called Peace to Prosperity. The economic plan is 40 pages. See the link below.

The economic plan is divided into 4 sections: Overview, Unleashing Economic Potential, Empowering the Palestinian People, and Enhancing Palestinian Governance.

See the link below for the specifics and details.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/peacetoprosperity/empowering-palestinian-people/

The plan is reported to have 179 economic projects. There are 96 pages worth of details and financing information. Economic programs and projects of the plan are noted in the link below.

Jared Kushner also conducted an interview with Reuters News. The interview is 4 minutes and 35 seconds. Click on the link below for Kushner’s comments.

Fund raising will be a part of the scheduled “workshop”. Wealthy Arab Gulf states are being encouraged to make contributions in funding the plan. The United States is also promising to assist with finances.

“The reason we’re calling this a workshop and not a conference is because we want to get feedback and hopefully finalize it so that we can then coordinate a lot of the aid efforts and investing efforts to really drive these results.” -Jared Kushner

The political piece of the plan is scheduled to be released at a later date. This is likely to occur after Israeli elections on September 17, 2019.

Nobody is making the claim, “There is peace and security.” But they are starting to talk about it with intent and purpose.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

One of My Super Powers, Invisibility… Christine McDonald

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Christine "Clarity" McDonald with tags on June 22, 2019 by paulthepoke

One of my super powers, when I was on the streets, was invisibility. It seemed that the only people who see you, a prostitute, are the ones who intend to exploit you. Truthfully, though, I wasn’t that different from other young women.

I loved clear, blue skies with marshmallowy clouds floating lazily across them. I loved hot bubble baths and lovely smells, be it the smells of flowers growing in the spring, bread baking in the bakery on the Avenue, or freshly cut grass. I dreamed of times when I had felt safe and wasn’t hungry. I loved girlie colors, and things that were soft to the touch. I loved the sounds of music, and my heart always skipped when I heard the church bells in the distance on Sunday mornings. Somehow, those bells promised that everything would be all right.

I hated mirrors, as I think many of us do. I’d look down when I was near one, only peeking at the clothes I was wearing. I never dared to look myself in the eye. Somehow, that kept me safe and disconnected from the life I lived.

I think that at one time I had dreams, before prostitution, violence, homelessness, addiction, and hopelessness. But in the midst of the life I lived, I dared not dream of a life outside of it. Something better did not exist for people like me.

Sanhedrin Looks to Davidic Kingdom

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Trend Update with tags , , , , on June 20, 2019 by paulthepoke

2 Samuel 7:8-17 “Now therefore, thus you shall say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel. I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you; and I will make you a great name, like the names of the great men who are on the earth. I will also appoint a place for My people Israel and will plant them, that they may live in their own place and not be disturbed again, nor will the wicked afflict them any more as formerly, even from the day that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel; and I will give you rest from all your enemies. The Lord also declares to you that the Lord will make a house for you. When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity, I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men, but My lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. Your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever.”’” In accordance with all these words and all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.

The modern day Sanhedrin has recently released a new coin honoring the Davidic Kingdom. The Sanhedrin is looking to re establish the line of Israel’s ancient King David.

The coin is gold-plated. David in gematria (Hebrew numerology) equals 14, equivalent to the word ‘zahav’ (Hebrew for gold). The coin contains 14 grams of 14 karat gold.

To emphasize this point, the coin was issued on the seventh day of the month of Sivan, the day after the holiday of Shavuot. According to Jewish tradition, King David was born and also died on the holiday of Shavuot. On Shavuot, Jews read the Book of Ruth which describes her union with Boaz, the grandparents of King David. -Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz

“The coin foreshadows the yearning for the return of the kingdom to Israel through the dynasty of the House of David, the Messiah of Israel, the judge of the world and who brings wisdom to it. We wait, the people of Israel for the redeemer, in flesh and blood, and even though he may tarry we continue to wait for him, every day. We commemorate US President Donald Trump in connection with his Messianic activities. Donald Trump is the numerical value of the Messiah, the Son of David, who comes from Edom. Which until now has taken great steps in the rebirth of Israel and the dignity of Jerusalem like a biblical figure which we mentioned first in the world by minting Trump coins.” -Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman
