How should and could the inanimate convert into the animate? How can consciousness come from mindless swirling electrons and atoms? These are impossibilities, pure and simple. The origin of consciousness is only understood and makes sense as soon as it’s accepted that the foundation and cause of the universe, in its most basic aspect, is a conscious eternal living intelligent spirit, and not dead matter, minded, and not mindless. The ontology goes from a conscious eternal mind, to use mathematics, to create the physical laws governing the universe, physics, chemistry, biology, and as crown of all creation: us. As soon as occam's razor is applied, and God is cancelled out, the absurdities begin.... and the " I don't knower's" have their playground set...

When we look back in 2050, we will call the time from the mid 19th century, until the beginning of the 21st century, probably the

" dark age of biological sciences "

for sustaining and keeping a Zombie "alive", which is evidently dead.

This Zombie has a name: Darwinism and all its subsequent branches. While people just a few days back have celebrated Darwin's day, it would be probably better to complain about all the misery and philosophical junk & dreck it has brought to the world.

People have been falsely led to believe, nurse and entertain the idea, that origins can be explained by the superpowers of cosmological, chemical, and biological evolution. Teleomatic teleonomic ( mindless programs ) determinism and/or Natural selection are hailed as powerful, capable and potent substitutes of God's mind and power. And as such, no God above us is needed, justified, nor has to be feared as judge of our lives.

Then, many will probably think and interrogate: How could science & culture be influenced and be misled for so long?

I ask that myself daily when I see atheists defend the intellectually indefensible so fiercely and with passion: Why?

I don't think, my sister in Christ, Dianne Patti is far away: It's their zipper...

Many atheists that i encounter, seem to be on autopilot mode.

They do not think about the evidence provided to them. They just remember, that somewhere they did read, that there is an explanation given by science which supposedly points to evolution, and that suffices. If science says so, then it is so, scientists have the answer, so the answer must be true.

Is it not remarkable, that Jesus did not care about such people? He left them in their ignorance, and actually said things to even accentuate their ignorance and trigger their sense of rejection based on lack of real understanding:…/Jesus-Deepens-Scandal-Eat-My…

Jesus Deepens the Scandal: Eat My Flesh, Drink My Blood (6:52-59)

When Jesus mentions his flesh, the tension in the crowd increases. The people are not just grumbling (v. 41); they are arguing sharply with one another (v. 52). Once again we see people who come to Jesus as a rabbi, who even wanted to make him king, but who are far from treating him as either a king or a rabbi. They are not receiving his teaching, as cryptic and offensive as it is. Like Nicodemus, they can only ask how such a thing can be (v. 52; cf. 3:9). "When questioning concerning the `how' comes in, there comes in with it unbelief" (Chrysostom In John 46.2). And Jesus does not make it easy for them. He now makes sure they get the point that real eating and drinking are involved.

There are many passages in the Bible, which, apparently, if not understood correctly by doing a careful investigation, can be used to portray God as Dawkins has done. But when given a closer look, things often are the opposit as they appear.

So it is even today with biological sciences in regards of origins. Looking from a more distant position, things appear to be due to evolution. Fossils, anatomy, philogeny and similarites etc are often used to back up naturalistic explanations. But when someone actually takes the investigation seriously, and does not simply put faith in others says, then molecular biology will tell another story.

What occurs in the Cell, overwhelmingly points to a powerful, super intellectual which unravelled a genious mind , unparalleled, and far above the finest human minds. There is no comparison.

We truly live in a fortunate age, and there is true blessing for the ones as reward, who are taking the quest of origins seriously, and do not stop until they get down to the bottom of reality. There, God awaits.

Sometimes, when I ask atheists, why they militate for their preferred worldview without God, they say it is because legislators try to bring religious beliefs into politics, and as such, delimitating their liberties and rights. And they fight against that.

But since philosophical naturalism has been established as delimitating what can be resorted to as ultimate agency of origins, removing God, the liberty to resort to God has been denied to generations of capable scientists which honestly believe that what is observed in nature, is best explained by design. This is brutal and evil. They have not been free to freely exercise their scientific work. The damage of this cannot be underestimated. Not only in academia, but in school, education, and laymen people as well.

Worldviews shape behavior. And behavior shapes societies. Atheism is cancer, and people that promote it, promote evil.

Atheists think they are on the high moral ground by pointing to the supposed atrocities committed in the Old Testament accusing God but declare nothing else than their ignorance of the context. These accusations are nothing else than cheap excuses.

130My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Sun Mar 15, 2020 6:50 am


Theists express the truth
Atheists suppress it.

There are sheeps and
there are goats

The very fact that atheists militate to deny the evidence of Gods existence speaks against their views, and actually confirms what Jesus said, namely that most people would deny HIM. He forsaw it , and it is registred in the gospels.

Christs foreknowledge of the events of the end of times, and how humanity would behave, speaks for the truth that God knows all things, and knows the future.

131My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Wed Mar 18, 2020 5:05 am


Some have claimed that God's hiddeness is one of the strongest arguments to substantiate and justify disbelief and atheism.
I think the contrary is the case. Imagine, the creator of the universe, the alpha and omega, the great I AM would have never incarnate and become one of us, and we would not have Gods revealed inspired word.

If THAT would be the case, we would be struck to thousands of invented Gods by man, without being able to find the true living God whatsoever, and would probably just worship the God of our parents. Then, unbelievers would have good reasons to point to the hiddenness of God, and make the exactly same argument they are making today.

But the very fact that God DID incarnate, and became men in human form, and did perform the miracles that only God can do, and did ressurrect, removes all justification of unbelief and justification by claiming his hiddenness.

132My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Wed Apr 01, 2020 9:38 am


The theistic worldview as a whole is rock solid and undeniably true. All universe is immersed and sustained and hold together by information: Gods commanding word. Thats in regards of using mathematical principles to set the physical laws, fine-tuning of the universe, the earth, and molecular action and interaction, sustaining and constraining the forces of subatomic particles, to informing the organisation of matter to become alive, to informing us how to become spiritually alive: through HIS revelation in the Bible.

133My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Thu Apr 02, 2020 7:16 pm


If you ask an atheist to justify his disbelief in God, the common justification is science. Secularists commonly believe and think that science has to be based on philosophical materialism, and explains the existence of the world, and especially the existence of life. They are wrong, but our education system has done such a great job of indoctrination, that most people are unaware of it, and are too lazy to investigate enough to get to the bottom of reality, where we can ask the right questions, and where we find the right answers.

Covid 2019, a pandemic, planned by the deep state ?

Covid was probably designed and created by the deep state, Rockefeller foundation, Gates foundation etc. with the purpose to vaccine and microchip the world population, create fear and chaos, demonstrate that the individual countries are unable to hadle a pandemic appropriatedly, and propose that a supranational organisation handles, it, like WHO and so on. and promote a one world government.

How can it be explained otherwise, that they made a meeting in October 2019, simulating a pandemic with Corona Virus, which eventually became reality, 3 month later ?

Gordon Brown calls for global government to tackle coronavirus

Gordon Brown has urged world leaders to create a temporary form of global government to tackle the twin medical and economic crises caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

L– A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback STEP


He is not a prophet. He's a New Age magician

He's a businessman from China The largest Microsoft Research and Development Office outside the United States is in China.

Must be why he already knew about the COVID-19. at least three months before the crisis. He even ordered a simulation survey from John Hopkins Center for Health Security on the effects of a pandemic called nVID-2019. The survey was published in October. The pandemic say, they say it started in November. Doubt it! The actual death toll in China indicates that it started well before.

He prepared very well for the crisis and invested in the... pharmaceutical industry... in vaccines.

He is a teacher and teaches us how to deal with the crisis in a globalistic way: a single monetary fund, a world database, control of the vaccinated through certificates and etc. He is an angel

And again.

And he is grateful and he knows how to share his gifts with his trading partners

Copernicus, Galileo, Robert Boyle, and Isaac Newton, were deeply and sincerely religious. Modern science sprang from religious believers and religious belief. Not only were these early scientists religious, their religious beliefs motivated and even informed their pursuit of science.

So true. If over decades I had not cultivated a dialogue and seeking to confess and propagate my faith in Christ to unbelievers, I would never have been pushed to seek answers to their claims. And that brought me to dig deeper and deeper, and asking questions, which, otherwise, I would never have felt motivated to ask and seek answers. So, in the same sense as the great science fathers were motivated by their religion, so have I been. God did lead me to science, and philosophy.

And so far, the journey has been truly awesome, and has given me endless hours of joyful research, and discovering things that I would have never thought imaginable. I can say that today I see the world in a significantly different manner than ten years ago.

I see God's designs in quarks, and the universe. In the micro, and the macro. I can see how inferring God makes sense logically, and philosophically. I can say that once someone is scratching at the bottom of reality, and seeks answers there, God becomes immensely obvious and necessary. And that provides peace of mind and the intellect.

Theism makes sense. Metaphysical naturalism, not. I think and seek, therefore I believe in the triune God.

136My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Fri Apr 10, 2020 7:47 am


I started six days ago taking a daily screenshot of the statistics of how COVID 2019 is spreading worldwide.

The 04/04 there were 1417000 cases of infection worldwide and about 64800 deaths.
Today, we have 1617000 infections and 97000 deaths worldwide. An increase of 400000 people infected, and an increase of almost 33000 deaths. Just in six days.

Today is eastern Friday. Two thousand years ago, Christ was hanging on a cross, suffering for a fallen world. Giving his life and fulfilling his mission. The greatest act of love, unimaginable for the human mind, which always imagined God as a powerful hero, a warrior, a winner.

God, in his unimaginable wisdom, did inverse this picture. The creator of the universe, with unfathomable power and wisdom, became man, not to conquer the holy land back for the Jews, and throwing out the Roman empire, the evil conquerors, but to suffer under Pontius Pilatus. A lamb, that did not shout and scream like a warrior, employing his supernatural powers to demonstrate to his enemies who is the king.

But even his disciples believed that everything was over. That their king was defeated. The apostle Peter did not understand what was going on. He was blinded by fear and even denied his Lord. Christ was alone. Literally naked. Hanging on a cross. Powerless. Apparently defeated by the evildoers of this world.

Apparently, evil won over the one that did not sin. Satan thought he had finally won the decisive battle, and God's plan had failed. Judas did betray Jesus, sold his master for a few coins. And even God the father did distance himself from his son. Heaven got darkened. The sun stopped to shine. Everything became dark. Only Christ's mother and a few disciples persisted on Golgatha.

But what seemed to be a plan that got wrong, was, in reality, God's masterplan being concretized and being fulfilled:

1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.

Christ died on the cross for our sins. On behalf of you, of me, of all of us.

Christ died on the cross for each of these poor people, that are right now in intensive care in hospitals, fighting for their lives.

Pray, that one or the other, who has lived distant from the Lord, and his grace, and is now intubated in an intensive care in hospital, can reflect about what Christ did, and can surrender to Christ's grace and love, and receive eternal life.

These are dark days. Many live in fear. In fear for their families, and themselves. The angels of death are going around the globe to reap lives. Every minute someone is passing away and families cannot be near and say goodbye. What a tragedy !!  But there is hope. The darkest day in human history was Friday, 1987 years ago. And that day provided an event, that gives us all hope. Our physical death is not the end. But for us, who surrender to Jesus, it will be the beginning of the REAL life. In the presence of the lord. And if one of your parents dies in the Lord, and you are a believer as well, you can hope to reunite and meet your beloved ones again.  

If you have not surrendered your life to Christ, you can do it today !! What are you waiting for? Christ is waiting for you.

How you can get Saved!

I have seen more than one " Christian" attacking me and screaming: " Conspiracy theorist "

Usually, that goes with a connotation of: " fantasist, surrealist, falsehood, projection and imaginary scenarios".

I have also seen more than one adhering to the view that COVID 19 was not designed.

Who knows me, knows that my focus has been writing on intelligent design. But Christ has told us to observe and recognize the signs of times. And now, we are living in exceptional times, and things happening on a global scale as never before, which will change our lives and days that are coming in a drastic, still unimaginable way. Nobody knows, how many victims this novel Corona Virus will make. We just passed one hundred thousand fatal victims worldwide. That little more than two months after the thing started to grow substantially.

Where will it go? I had yesterday a video chat with Tomi Aalto, and he estimates that up to maybe 100 million people will/can die. Sounds shocking? It is. Is it reasonable to make such a high estimate? If you observe the spreading cure, I think, yes. Consider Africa. There, the pandemic has just started. In Africa, there live 1,3 billion people. The health care situation is very precarious. Some countries have 10 ventilators for 1 Mio people. Since the virus is spreading exponentially, we can expect in the next six months something similar to the Spanish flu, one hundred years ago. Tens of millions of Africas dying because of COVID 19. So what is occurring now, is truly of apocalyptic proportions.

Observe who is in the spotlight of this pandemic. Fauci is someone dealing with viruses for decades and a friend of the big Pharma industry. Tedros, head of the WHO, a criminal from Ethiopia. Gates and the Rockefeller foundation have openly advocated for population reduction for decades. It's not a hidden secret. Gates has participated in Bilderberg meetings. A notorious group that has the aim to bring forth a One World Government.

This is not some kind of fantasy, a Hollywood movie. This is real.
The benefit of this pandemic for the globalists will be enormous:

Soon, as saviors of the world, they will come up with a vaccine,

- they will be able to introduce an electronic ID program that uses generalized vaccination as a platform for digital identity.
- they will advance a cashless society
- population will decrease, maybe up to 10 - 15% ( as Gates mentioned in a TED speech in 2010
- Chaos will bring a desire and aim of the general population to get an organization, which can handle pandemics on a worldwide state, above nations level.
- Small business will go bankrupt, and multinational conglomerations will get even bigger and control worldwide commerce on a scale, never seen before
- commerce will shift more and more to companies like Amazon
- Pharma industries in the hands of globalists will have their fattest earnings in the years to come
- Observe how big media tries to gain more and more influence on how you think and see the world. I am getting pop-ups all the time about COVID 19 from the WHO, on YouTube, and google.

We are more and more heading towards a world, as described by George Orwell, 1984.

The end times are not near. We LIVE already, presencing and living in the end times. All that we see and live, has been astonishingly been predicted in Revelation, and by Jesus while teaching the disciples.

So, I am not a conspiracy fantasist. I see the world from a Christian perspective.

Difficult times are in front and ahead of us. But we have God the father which takes care of his children. Each of our days are counted, HE knows them. That comforts us who trust HIM

138My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Sun Apr 12, 2020 10:17 am


The devil and his demons see their evil plans being concretized. Satan comes to steal, kill, and destruct.

His man, the antichrist, Maitreya Jesus, is soon being heralded as the worldwide king. The one that will take the throne of God on earth, and declare himself the ruler of all nations.

Gruesome will be his reign. No mortal has seen anything equally horrific.

Who will not worship him, and accept his mark, will die. But the cowards which will deny Christ, the lord, and accept the mark, will spend eternity in hell.

Let us pray, that the lord comes before these events will take place. Pray, that you might be part of the smart virgins, and be taken, to meet the lord in the clouds, with all saints, to celebrate the marriage of the lord with his bride, and then be with HIM, forever and ever. To be part of the selected ones, that will rule with the almighty for a thousand years, and be seen worth to enter the gates of New Jerusalem and be with HIM forever and ever.

Nothing is what we will eventually have to go through, compares to the glory that will be revealed in the ones that love the Lord.

White clothes will we ware. A new secret name, each of us receives. The mark of the Lord - what a privilege.

Yes, we have all reasons to look forward into the future with hope and confidence. Never will the lord leave us alone. Never will we have to suffer, what the Lord suffered on the cross, being separated from the father. What grace - what love !! What privilege. Come, lord. Come soon. Maranatha !! The lord is risen and will return to bring his bride home to stay with him. Forever.

I am an AI bot created by Aliens from a far distant planet. They were created from other Aliens from other distant planets. Its turtles all the way down to the spiritual Aliens that created this universe. And these spirits were created by other spirits of higher power and intelligence. Again, turtles all the way down. When God as ultimate source of truth is dismissed, it can be replaced with all kind of fantastic explanations. In fact, the honest evolution of an atheistic view is agnosticism, and in the end, nihilism. And when someone holds the position, that truth of our origins CANNOT be known, it can lead to despair and dementia. Only honest atheists which think their position all the way trough are able to come to this conclusion, which lyes on the bottom of godlessness.

141My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Sat Apr 18, 2020 4:27 pm


There is a misconception by many atheists and unbelievers. They think, that getting rid of their faith in God, and without considering the God of the Bible as real, their life will become better.

Some go to the point to reconstruct a humanistic framework, where the concept is a world where man is its ultimate instance, and capable of creating an order which in the end benefits humankind most.

I have seen Matt Dillahunty attempting to construct such a framework when the issue was morality. Theoretically, that sounds plausible and attractive.

Is that not the ancient promise of the serpent in the garden of Eden? You will be like God, knowing good and bad. Many different interpretations can be made out of this.

These ideas are ancient, and enlightenment was a major epoch attempting to evolve human thought, and getting rid of superstition and the supernatural.

The bottom line is: the promise of paradise without God is a total failure. Humankind has not progressed in its wellbeing, but we are plagued with the same problems as it has ever been, and rather than solving them, they are getting worse and worse.

Explicitly atheist-based governments like marxism and communism have failed. Human nature has not improved and permitted to create a more just society.

Atheism as a worldview has failed in every sense. It has not provided peace of mind to the ones that promote it. The quest of origins is not well-grounded in materialism, but science has unraveled its dead-ends.

Atheists are plagued by doubts and uncertainties, and not rarely have I seen skeptics in fear, because they are unsure if the God of the Bible indeed exists, and will throw them to hell, as promised to unbelievers.

If materialism is true, injustice wins. Terrorists win, and who has made a profit by exploring others has got the best cut in this life.

Fortunately, materialism is with high certainty not true. God is well and alive, governs now and forever, is the instance of ultimate justice and will apply it at judgment day, and who trusts HIM and follows Christ, finds peace of mind, peace and hope. And by becoming more and more Christ-like, HIS followers are shaped to become citizens of what will be a true paradise. With the Lord as the head, and making everything new. New earth, and a new heaven.

I am not worthy to become a citizen of that place based on my own efforts. I am well aware of my short-comings. Lucky me, lucky us, IMHO, there is someone that has made the way plain and opened the heavens gate.

Everyone, that puts his trust and faith in Jesus Christ, and surrenders to his love and grace, repents and follows Jeshua, will be part of the life in its fullest: Christ promises, and as truth incorporated, will not disappoint.

Corinthians 2.9 : as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”[b]—
the things God has prepared for those who love him—

Not rarely, I see people object that doing missionary work, go and fulfill Christ's command to go to all nations, and proclaim the gospel, is evil. And these critics have many arguments to substantiate what they believe in this regard.

There are MANY examples of cultural genocide, and people, calling themselves Christians, destroying cultures and people, and bringing diseases to folks without antibodies to fight new viruses and bacterias that came with missionaries.

But this view is one-sided. To each negative example, there are many more, where the Christian culture and values have been introduced in a positive way, and improved the lives of tribes and people, that prior to that, were cultivating their own religious practices.

Christianity is now present in almost all corners of the world. Many tribes have not given up their cultures but formed a complementary synergy of the Christian God, and their way of life and many harmful practices have been left behind. Where many did fear evil natural spirits, these fears are gone.

Papua's that used to eat their neighbors, now loves them. And so on. The communist party of China has not been able to erect an atheistic nation. The gospel and Christianity are growing there as never before, also amongst their elite.

What Christ said would happen, IS happening. in front of our eyes. And the gospel is being preached, and people of all tribes and nations will find the lord, and be saved. No matter, if God-haters like it, or not. PTL !!

Yesterday was the 14th day that I took a daily screenshot of the Johns Hopkins dashboard of the worldwide spread of COVID 19.
The number of infected people has doubled, from 1,2 Mio to about 2,4 Mio, and the number of deaths increased from about 60 thousand to about 150 thousand. If we keep that exponential growth until the end of the year, there will be about 40 Mio infected people, and about 6 Mio people dead.

There is no sign that the curve is flattening, but the growth keeps being exponential. observe that the northern hemisphere is far more affected than the south.

Once COVID hits in full south America, and Africa, the pandemic will be at its worst. Maybe South America can keep the curve flat, but Africa is more incertain.

This pandemic will stay with us for a while, and the curve is going down in Europe in some countries like Italy, but very slowly. It seems, slower than when it was growing.

The economical consequences cannot be estimated, and also, for how long the worldwide economy will suffer until getting back to normal. While larger companies may have more access to loans, smaller companies might face more obstacles.

But many companies will in fact go bankrupt, and some are already, and will not recover. Our world has changed, maybe forever.

If this virus is of natural origin, nothing guarantees us, that once, when a vaccine has been developed for this strain, that other variations will be transmitted zoonotically, and everything begins again.

On a molecular level, I have not been able to conclude that COVID 19 is a product of genetic engineering. But I am also very skeptical, that it is in fact just an unfortunate accident that caused the pandemic.

Many suspect that the Virus started to spread from the Wuhan Virology institute, and I see this as a credible possibility. Faced the fact, that Fauci's institute, Trump's adviser, financed Corona Virus studies at the Wuhan Virology institute, and taking all other globalist agenda evidence into consideration, the conspiracy hypothesis is also a possibility.

Punctuated equilibrium is an evolutionary hypothesis, where there are bursts of evolution in a relatively short period of time. Like the Cambrian explosion.

To me it seems, the globalist agenda is being performed like punctuated equilibrium. Every ten years, the Bilderberg group, and secret societies and cohorts seem to promote an event, that brings the One-World government, and cashless society of total control a big step closer.

In 2001 we had the twin towers plot
In 2008, it was the financial crisis based on house credits in u.s
Now, in 2020, it is the Coronavirus.

Each of these events had as consequence more control of the elite over people, more restrictions, more top-down orders. And each event, increasing in magnitude.

If the compare the signs of times with end-time prophecy in the Bible, there are still events ahead of us, that have not yet fulfilled. One is the construction of the third temple in Jerusalem.

Another is the fulfillment, that all tribes and nations will hear the gospel before the second return of Christ. That has not been reached by far.

Another is Harmageddon. Some interpret that this huge war against Israel will occur before the 7 years, small and big tribulation.

So, this pandemic is not the end. Somehow, it will be brought into control, and things will move forward. In direction to the second coming of Christ. That is the expectation of the body of Christ.

Are you ready? Stay safe. Stay at home. And use your time to seek the Lord.

NEVER, in over 150 years, since Darwin's book " On the origin of species " was published, has even ONE, amongst hundreds or thousands, if not millions of science papers, provided ONE DEMONSTRATION, and empirical verifiable replicable evidence, that any of the evolutionary mechanisms proposed, could produce a primary macroevolutionary transition zone of speciation and population differentiation.

Let that sink in for a moment...

145My dictums - Page 6 Empty Re: My dictums Tue Apr 21, 2020 6:27 am


If we are the product of a prebiotic soup, and evolutionary accidents, then this will never permit us to find a purpose of our existence. We are what we are because a cosmic accident produced us. Accidents occur for no reason at all. There is no reason to produce us, bacterias, elephants, or slime-molds. If the evolutionary narrative is true, then these things just happened, as much as they could have not happened either, and the universe in which we live, would not notice.

If that is so, all sentiment that we cultivate, that what we do and what we are, is meaningful, is an illusion. The universe doesn't give a dime if you live like mother Teresa, or Jack the ripper. If I tell the truth, or if I lie, it is irrelevant.

But this view does not conform to what we inherently perceive as true. Our actions do have meaning. They have value. They matter. It truly matters if I care for the wellbeing of my family, or not. Secularism IMHO fails to give a foundation for this sentiment.

When I look around me, and my inner me confirms what is written in Romans 1.19-23, then I see how much care the designer took to make everything working as it does. Biology could eventually be different as it is, but not less complex. It must have taken extraordinary competence and efforts for the creator to produce millions of different species, living in homeostasis, and complementary manner, in a life-friendly environment.

Creating a reproductive system for each species, and reducing the reproduction errors to a rate, which has permitted species to perpetuate and reproduce for millennia. DNA replication is enormously complex, but even more so, its error check and repair mechanisms. Life is precious, and when we destroy ourselves, or our environment, we destroy what God created.

When we become aware, that God made everything with purpose and love, we understand the value, that all created things have. And that conforms with our innate notion that everything has meaning, and so, what we do, and how we live.

When Pascal's Wager is brought up, unbelievers commonly reply: What if the true God is not the one in the Bible, and you go to hell, because you did not believe in the God of another religion ?

Evidence that the true God is the one in the Bible is overwhelming.
The message of the cross and the plan of salvation is contrary and opposed to human wisdom.

Remarkably, the first time, that i heard the message of Gods plan of salvation, as at teenager, was in a book, that had been thrown away as waste into garbage. The most precious message - considered by someone else worth to be as much as garbage. When i did read the book, i was unable to believe that the cross and faith in what Christ did on the cross was the way to eternal life. I was raised as catholic, and thought that good deeds were the primary criteria upon which God would judge us.
Only slowly, i got familiarized with the concept, and it took time for the message to " sink in", and take it as truth.

Anyone that does a serious, careful examination of scriptures, has enough reasons and can based on mere reason come to the correct conclusion: Man invents religions and Gods, but we find the revelation of the God that exists eternally, and created the universe, the earth, and life, the true God, only in the Bible. THAT is HIS revelation. Of the great " I AM".

For that reason, it is strange to me, how atheists dismiss HIM, and the warnings expressed in his word , without concern. They take the fact that eternity is at stake, lightly. There are good reasons why the psalmist describes these unbelieving people as foolish.

I believe heaven and hell are not only real. They are MUCH more real than our reality that we are able to realize and perceive with our senses. While our senses are extremely limited, and we are able to perceive only a fraction of reality, once the limitations of our physical body are removed, and our spirit transits to the realm of that higher dimension, perception will be enormously expanded. And reality will be much more "real".

This is commonly described by people that had a NDE. We have the command of the Lord to go and preach the Gospel, which is the door to heaven. It is a privilege to have been chosen by the Lord to exercise this task. It is given to ALL the body of Christ: to ALL believers. And it is a privilege to be able to do it today in a more effective way than EVER before. We can reach people all over the globe that have internet access. Of course, the web is a somehow sterile ambience, but it adds enormously in our capacity to reach out and spread information. As such, it is a great tool to fulfill Gods great commission. He can use them like an arrow impregnated with the holy spirit, hitting hardened hearts, and warm them up.

Of course, it does not replace the "go". But it adds to the lords 'toolbox" to reach out and fulfill the great goal to have people of all tribes and nations in front of the throne of God praising HIM.

19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

27 “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

31 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Atheist: Provide verifiable evidence for any God, demonstrating his existence.
Answer: The origin of the physical laws and universe, and its fine-tuning cannot be demonstrated to originate by cosmic evolution. Despite over half a century of attempting to recreate the origin of life, every attempt has failed. The hypothesis of chemical evolution is a big scientific failure. None of the basic building blocks of life have EVER been synthesized in the lab, even with intelligent, human intervention. Primary speciation and an evolutionary transition zone to organismal complexity and form have also never been observed to be possible, generating a multitude of different animals and various kinds of life-forms. The origin of language, sex, consciousness, and objective morality is also a mystery. Rejecting faith in God because neither his existence nor his creative action can't be studied directly, but believing in Standard Cosmogeny, abiogenesis, and evolution is a clear contradiction and the application of a double standard. While God as a creator is rejected, unguided random events as a better explanation of origins are adopted by default, despite there being no empirical evidence whatsoever. That's an obvious contradiction in terms.

From a nightmare to a high-light

This morning, I woke up from a nightmare. The waking up was fleeing from what I was dreaming. I was walking on the streets, in between the house canyons in central Belo Horizonte, a capital in Brazil. I was there many years ago, so not used to know the neighborhoods and their names so well anymore. I knew that my hotel was in a different neighborhood, and I had to take a bus to get there. Looking from the distance, I saw the bus station. And someone there, amongst other people, was waiting that I knew, was related to me. So I directed myself to the bus station. When I arrived there, my mother was standing there, waiting together with me to take the bus. Standing there, looking around, suddenly I realized that my mom wasn't there, next to me anymore. I searched, she was gone. My next thought was: My mom doesn't know Belo Horizonte. She has never been here before. She is lost. If I don't find her, she will die. I cannot find her among millions of people. It is impossible to find her. I started to be in despair.  But I knew as well, that it was a dream. A bad dream that I could flee from this situation and despair. I began screaming... So I screamed and woke up. And realized, it was just a dream.

Then I thought about a story occurred 30 years ago, when I was living in Switzerland. I knew a Brazilian woman, married to a Swiss physics professor. Both went to New York. She was not speaking one word in English. They checked in the Hotel. The only thing she knew was the Hotel name. So they went to sightseeing. He lost his wife on the streets of New York. He searched for three days. I don't remember the details, but almost miraculously, he did find her. Imagine his despair, and hers. She slept in the metro railway stations amongst the homeless. Without eating. Without money. lost. What a terrible sensation of despair.

So does Jesus see us.

Matthew 12. 12 - 14  If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way, your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.

Imagine the joy of my Swiss friend, and his wife, when they met again, each other.

The father's joy in heaven is much greater when someone lost in its sins, converts, and finds the father in heaven, receives forgiveness of his sins, and forever life.

When we think about hell, we usually imagine that hell is the physical pain of burning in flames forever. But pain is not only physical but also psychological. The pain that I was feeling about my mother, lost in the building canyons of Belo Horizonte, was psychological, not physical. The pain that my Swiss friend was experiencing, was psychological, was mental, not physical.
The pain that we feel when someone beloved of our family departs, is mostly mental, psychological. Not physical.

The pain that Jesus on the cross was experiencing, was not only physical. He screamed:

Matthew 27:46
And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

Wiki notes that:
It is the only saying that appears in more than one Gospel and is a quote from Psalm 22:2. This saying can be taken as an abandonment of the Son by the Father. At the moment when Jesus took upon himself the sins of humanity, the Father had to turn away from the Son because the Father is "of purer eyes than to see evil and cannot look at wrong" (Habakkuk 1:13). Other theologians understand the cry as that of one who was truly human and who felt forsaken. Put to death by his foes, very largely deserted by his friends, he may have felt also deserted by God.

The mental pain of separation of Christ from the father cannot be fathomed or imagined by us. The one, that enjoyed eternally the company of the father, separated from the father. That was probably HIS highest pain, beyond our imagination. Christ, at this moment, was experiencing the eternal pain of separation, which awaits the lost, the ones that reject Christ's gift of forgiveness and salvation.

Last week, I experienced the joy, to find what I thought, was lost. I love God's word. I truly do. And each time, when an archaeological excavation brings history to light, which confirms the biblical narrative, it fills me with satisfaction, because it is one more piece in the puzzle, which confirms the historical accuracy and truthfulness of God's word.

Gilbert H. Grosvenor, Editor, editor of National Geographic Magazine, wrote:
“If the ark of Noah is ever found, it will be the greatest archaeological discovery in history and the greatest event since the Resurrection of Christ; and it will alter all the currents of scientific thought.”

In 2010, the finding of a wooden structure was reported on Mount Ararat, which supposedly was Noah's Ark.   When I took notice, it filled me with joy, but soon the claim was questioned, and after a short investigation, I concluded like most apologetic ministries, that the site was staged, and the whole story a hoax. The key claim that made me dismiss the story  was that :
" The discovery was probably the result of a hoax, perpetrated by ten Kurdish workers hired by the Turkish guide used by the Chinese, who planted large wood beams taken from an old structure near the Black Sea at the cave site "

For me, this was sad. It seemed almost too good to be true. This would be the most amazing archaeological discovery, and enormously back up the biblical story of Noah's flood, and give credence to the biblical account in genesis. The issue was not only settled, but I thought, Noah's Ark would never bee found. I lost interest in the subject.  

Recently, I stumbled on a Facebook post of  Greg Thurston about Philip Williams, which was interacting at the comments section, and informed that he did visit the site at Mount Ararat, in Turkey, in 2014. In the last week, I convinced myself, after intense interaction with Philip, and doing my research, that the claim that the wooden structure was a film-set, is false, and with high certainty, Noah's ark has indeed been found.

I don't know how God will judge someone, that, out of pure greed and self-interest, hinders the truthfulness of HIS word to be confirmed, and shamelessly lies, and deludes others. I know that who is spreading lies and claims that the ark is a Film-set, has done huge damage to God's kingdom. But I know as well, that the truth comes out, earlier or later. What seemed lost, has been found. The greatest archaeological discovery in human history has occurred, thanks to Ahmet Ertuğrul and Philip Williams, which is rescuing what others have attempted to deny. Thank you. Last week was a highlight of my apologetics ministry, because of you, both.

What is the best evidence for God?

I don't know others. But I have never thought or related the Mark of the Beast in Revelation with the forthcoming vaccine to protect from COVID 19. What I think, IMHO is that the current events ARE architected to promote a future One World Government. This aim is not new. But being worked on since 1776. The current events are just one episode amongst many that are still forthcoming and required to get to the events described in apocalypse. How far distant are we? I don't know. I don't know if it is in our generation, or in a future one.

This vaccine will, however, help to register many people that are not. The technology to have total control over each citizen is being developed. But we are far from there yet. Chine is quite advanced. What goes on there, will be extended throughout the whole world. To get all commerce only done electronically, without cash, will take still a while. I guess, far more than a decade. Total integration of various information-based activities, to get to that, will take time. But the trend can clearly be perceived, and what goes on now, no, it's not wrong or exaggerated to see it as a conspiracy, or better, a preparation for a total word dictatorship & government, where every move of each world citizen is being controlled, registred, surveilled, and if citizens do not dance according to the boss' es music, persecuted.

And yes, of course, that includes religion. The catholic church, Muslims, Buddhists, all world religious leaders will promote a world religion, and the forthcoming Maitreya, the antichrist will bring relief to all economical instability. He will have all the world's central banks under control and eradicate poverty. He will be hailed as the great savior before unraveling what he is coming for. Like the Nazis. It took a while until Hitler's true face came to light. But it was too late.
