Forgive Me

You’ll just have to forgive the light posting today. I got my left hand thumb slammed in a rat trap today — twice. Serious pain and serious pain killers. I can type well for a few minutes, then I feel it.

No broken bones, but I apparently have a torn ligament or two (or at a minimum severly strained). I’ll be taking it easy. In the meantime, tune into RedState, which is remembering the Pope and raising money in his honor.

  • Has the President fulfilled his PROMISES to the PEOPLE?
    More than a year later, his promises keep flowing into the “Bottomless Pit, the Pit of WAR.” The People never make promises; therefore they never break them. They are subject to a President that makes all kind of promises to get what he wants, the trust of the People and that which comes with it; their moral support and their moneys. As he makes news promises; the People forgets the old ones. They do not have any way to reclaim the old promises of their Government, because they are the slaves of Government TAXES, so they get the misery that is left as “SOCIAL SECURITY;” while the President thinks of more futuristic promises, and expends the Wealth of his People to create chaos for other People in a SADISTIC VISION of PEACE. Today he gave reasons for the high prices of gasoline and gave the People some foolish wisdom to solve their problems. I say; “NO MORE HATE! NO MORE VIOLENCE! NO MORE WAR! NO MORE LIES! Ivor Manuel prays for you and PEACE for the World; the pillar prophet branch of the LORD.
    The following reading is an insert from; “The Revelation for PEACE from JESUS CHRIST to the World,” published at before the 2004 elections:
    May 24, 2004 Year of our LORD; the prophet heard the president of the United States of America speaking to the nation about the future of Iraq. Like he always does; he demonized again Saddam Hussein; the “tyrant brutal dictator;” one thing that was interesting was to hear him explained; how with the permission of the new Iraqi government that will be established; he then was going to demolish the Abu Garhib prison.
    For there Saddam had committed some of the most awful torturing crimes to the people of Iraq. And also a few American soldiers had committed the same atrocities; however those soldiers do not represent America’s democratic freedom, the prophet heard him say. And the prophet meditated, about these poor soldiers that were encouraged by him and their superiors to mimic Saddam diabolic mind; and now have become escape goats of the World’s of Gog and Magog.
    Now open your eyes wide people of America and them that are called to be priests of GOD and of CHRIST in the First Resurrection; read that you may see and understand; and tune your ears to TRUTH; that you may understand and hear the VOICE of The LORD in your own ears. The LORD said to His prophet: “In the future people shall say: We know that an Angel of The LORD appeared to Moses in a blazing fire out of a bush. But to Bush; MY prophet wrote in the WEB saying: “Wicked man; you took the dirt out of the Evil man’s eye; before you took the beam and the filth that covers your eyes, making you murdering blind.”
    Behold! After the prophet wrote the saying; he look up throughout the window, and saw rays of light coming from the morning star; and he got up from his desk and opened the door, and heard the rooster crowing in the barn, it was in concert with a mocking bird; which exaltedly sang and danced by the colorful Trinitarian tree; they both were praising the new day that The LORD has made. All this was happening while the mares were getting up; and while the prophet walked to the barn over the stone way; to bring back the hay for the mares first meal of the day; he then heard The LORD speaking to him these WORDS: “The thief has come to steal, to kill and to destroy: I am come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly. I am the GOOD SHEPHERD; and the GOOD SHEPHERD gave HIS LIFE for the sheep. But he that is a hireling, [government employed] and is not The SHEPHERD, whose own the sheep are not, [American soldiers] sees the wolf coming, [sees problems coming] and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, [Court Martial] and scatters the sheep.”
    That same day, the prophet Ivor Manuel saw and heard news on television; a US military spokesman presenting his controversial evidence on television; a bombing mission where 40 people were violently killed while dancing, eating, drinking and celebrating a wedding in Iraq; also news about the weddings of Sodom and Gomorra in the cities of America; and the children of America playing sex games with color robber bands bracelets in the schools; rampant murders in the towns and cities; the building of new “Freedom Tower”; the presidential campaigning and the non-stopping commercialization of the “WAR on TERROR”; the teaching of Violence; the defending of lies by leaders of all status, and the cover up of every investigation, because the leaders of the nation are guilty; even more testimony about the Sins of America in the Abu Garhib prison; suggesting that orders to torture came in deed from the top of the Command.
    While all this things are part of the daily American life; the Spiritual leaders are busy asking for money to save the souls of the World for JESUS; they are afraid to open their mouth against the Dragon, for fear of loosing their church tax exception and all commodities. Then The SPIRIT took the prophet to the BOOK and the GOSPEL of MATTHEW, and as he saw The WORD written; he also heard the VOICE of The LORD reminding him of HIS coming: “But as the days of NOE were, so shall also the days of the son of man they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that NOE entered into the ark. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be”. Chapter 24; verses 37-39. Then HE took him to the BOOK of ISAISH where is written: “Behold, the name of The LORD comes from far, burning with HIS anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: HIS lips are full of indignation, and HIS tongue as a devouring fire. And HIS breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people causing them to err.” From chapter 30, verses 27-28.
    And The LORD also recalled him of our transgressions: ”You hypocrites, well did ISAIAH as prophesy of you saying; this people draw nigh unto to ME with their mouth, and honors ME with their leaps; but their heart is far from ME. But in vain they do worship ME, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Following that, the prophet saw The WORD written and heard HIS VOICE pronouncing these: “Therefore say I unto you, The KINGDOM of GOD shall be taken from you, and given to a nation [CHOSEN and FAITHFUL] bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whosoever it shall fall, it will grind him to power.”
    Then Ivor Manuel recalled PSALM thirty 3; verse 12: “Blessed is the nation whose GOD is The LORD: and the people whom HE has chosen for HIS own INHERITANCE.” Verse 13: “The LORD looks from Heaven; HE beholds all the sons of men.” Verse 14: “From the place of HIS habitation HE looks upon all the inhabitants of the Earth.” Verse 16: There is no King saved by the multitude of an host; a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.” Verse 17: “An horse is a vane thing for safety; neither shall he deliver any by its great strength.”
    Then, the prophet understood with certainty: The United States of America had rejected GOD’S LAWS and COMMANDMENTS, with rebellion and disobedience. Believing and praising the nation’s military might and their Wicked Inventions; the Weapons of Mass Destruction; which they thought they should keep away from the hands of the Evildoers; by the shedding of innocent blood and conduction of their affairs without guidance from The WORD of GOD. And The LORD has removed HIS PROTECTION and BLESSINGS from the land of America “unless they repent”; thus writes HIS prophet.
    Understand this now Chosen and Faithful of the World; The New Nation of GOD; The Children of The LIGHT; The Sons of The RESURRECTION of The BLOOD of The NEW COVENANT for LIFE and PEACE; for it is written; “But you are come unto mount SION [unobstructed consciousness] and unto the CITY of the Living GOD, the HEAVENLY JERUSALEM, [THE NEW JERUSALEM, THE NEW VISION of PEACE] and to an innumerable company of angels. To the general assembly and Church of the First born, which are written in Heaven, and to GOD the JUDGE of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect. And to JESUS the mediator of a NEW COVENANT, and to the BLOOD of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.” From the New TESTAMENT; HEBREWS chapter 12, verses 22-24.
