19:12 […] [Jesus] has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.
3:12 […] I [Jesus] will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name.
2:17 […] I [Jesus] will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.

Closest Supermoon Since 1948 Arrives Monday

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Mon, Nov 14, 2016 - 8:51 pm

A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.

Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.

His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.

She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.

It just so happens that today we’re at our 666th posting, or at least our 666th “node.” (Look up in the address bar of your web browser.) So in “honor” of that I figured I wou

Poor Gives More

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sat, Aug 6, 2011 - 10:17 pm

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts.

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.

Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything — all she had to live on.”

Right to Eat, or NO RIGHT to Eat, from the Tree of Life

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sat, Jun 11, 2011 - 12:34 am

[…] He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

[…] Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.

Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

Every Kinda People

There's no profit in deceit,
Honest men know that revenge does not taste sweet.
Whether yellow, black, or white,
Each and every man's the same inside.

You know that love's the only goal
That could bring a peace to any soul…

False Prophets of Prohibition

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sun, Jul 11, 2010 - 5:18 pm

Background

In the Bible you can read all sorts of stuff about False Prophets, mostly in the Old Testament. In short, God didn't talk to them, but they went around saying, "God told me to tell you ____________." Or they went around making pronouncements of what would happen in the future, and perhaps why. Or they would say an event happened because of some reason, and they would point to God as having caused it for ____________ reason.

Since many people may not be familiar with the concept of False Prophets, let's compare them to another group which many people are familiar with.

Yes-Men

False Prophets are similar to, but not exactly like, today's "Yes-Men." As you may know, Yes-Men are people who kiss butt, pander, they claim their masters do no wrong, they lavish praise on their overlord(s) and deride all opposition, no matter what the facts are. In short, they've sold their souls to beings other than the one true God.

Simple Comparison: Yes-Men & False Prophets

Facts don't matter to Yes-Men or False Prophets. If the facts seem to line up with what they say, then they tout them. If the facts do not line up with what they say, the facts are ignored, misrepresented, or bent in some crooked way. Yes-Men told the emperor his clothing of moonbeams was the finest in all creation, ignoring the fact the emperor was strutting stark naked for all to see; all of them being hoodwinked by a lie they knew was a lie, but were too cowardly to acknowledge.

This concept, and modified title, is used quite effectively as the basis of another book which deals specifically with marijuana prohibition.

There is not a complete overlap between Yes-Men and False Prophets. Yes-Men, for the most part, don't claim to speak for God. False Prophets, on the other hand, have little problem going around telling people they speak for God, or implying it. However, not all False Prophets make overt statements about speaking for God. They go around making proclamations about what the future holds, and generally, make pronouncements as to why events happened the way they did, or will happen the way they do.

False Prophets of Prohibition

The False Prophets of Prohibition are nearly identical to the False Prophets of ages gone by. False Prophets of Prohibition say things like "we can have a drug free America," and "we should have the goal of a drug free world."

Prohibition Prophecy: 21st and 18th Amendments

In this short analysis of Biblical prophecy, and numbers from United States Founding Documents, some amazing and enlightening developments have been discovered.
  • Read a little about the United States Constitution.
  • Learn where the number 666 is written about in the Bible, in the book of Revelation.
  • Read some of the symbolic meanings of the numbers 6 & 7.
  • Learn how Jesus was, and is, a whole lot nicer than the beings written about in Revelation that force their wills on others.
  • Finally a joke using UNIX permissions which has a convenient coincidence.

Here is some from the introduction...

Introduction

The number 666 has long been considered a bad omen, a bad sign, an evil number, standing for an evil force. A number that somehow indicates evil. Many theories have been put forth as to why. I have discovered another possible explanation, or two.

Adding interest to this theory are some symbolic meanings attached to various numbers, in particular 6 and 7. The number 6 is believed to be the number of “man.” The number 7 is believed to be the number of “perfection” and “completion.”

Read Revelation chapter 13 and one thing is clear. The beast is all about forcing its will on others. Please note, this is the opposite of our savior, Jesus, Yeshua, the Christ, the Messiah, Wonderful, Counselor. He asks us nicely. He said whoever comes to him, he will not drive away. How many people did Jesus push his will on? None! How many people did Jesus kill? None! Others begged him to do things for them.
