Missing The Point

Attorney General Dana Nessel requested Catholic churches throughout Michigan to stop doing internal investigations into clergy sexual assaults. Nessel announced that the state will continue its inquires into sexual abuse claims against the Catholic church, which started under the previous attorney general’s tenure.

Nessel pleaded with witnesses to ask an investigator to “see their badge” rather than “their rosary.”

But rather than stay quiet, a Detroit archdiocese official decided to fire back at the AG. The Detroit Free Press:

“The rosary is a treasured devotion of the Catholic Church,” McGrath told the Free Press. “And it’s troubling to have it used as a punch line. Here’s hoping future statements show no additional disrespect.”

Really? The Church is taking umbrage with Nessel’s language? Doesn’t the Catholic Church have more on its plate at the moment?

Talk about missing the point.

  1. Jesus says:

    Hi there,

    I want to share some extremely significant information that’s been spreading all over the internet relevent to our future well being.

    We are moving towards a future of a one-world cashless society in which we will be mandated to recieve an RFID microchip placed in our body. This chip will contain all our personal information and we will lose much more of our privacy because of the tracking technology.

    Even more importantly, did you know that this was foretold around 2000 years ago by a major historical figure named Jesus Christ? Have doubts? Continue reading to see… This could be the most important article you will ever read.

    “And he(the false prophet) makes everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of its name.

    This calls for wisdom: Let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a person. Its number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 CSB).

    Speaking of the last days, this could only be speaking of a society where physical currency is no more, which has yet to occur, but we are getting close to. Why? Otherwise we could still buy or sell without accepting the mark of the beast among each other if [tangible currency was still valid. It logically deduces itself to this reason.

    This mark could not be something spiritual, because the word references two distinct physical locations. If it were to be spiritual, it would just say in the forehead.

    Here is where it really ties together. It is surprising how on the nail the word of God is in the matter of this RFID microchip. Here are the details from a guy named Carl Sanders who labored with a squad of engineers to help develop the RFID microchip in the 1900’s.

    Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads of state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world-a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle(a fast, convenient method that would be slowly accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by US tax dollars, took on this challenge and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable by the temperature fluctuations in our skin. Without having knowledge of the Bible(Sanders was not a follower of Christ at the time), these engineers spent one and a half million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip placed under the skin.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two spots Revelation says the mark will go) are not only the most convenient places, but are also the only viable spots for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The chip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of holding pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this microchip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this chip, which he regretfully helped engineer, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick. Carl believes this is referring to the use of a hypodermic needle being poked into the human flesh to insert the microchip.”

    Mr. Sanders reached out to a doctor asking what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID chip leaked into the body. The doctor responded by saying a terrible sore would appear in that location. This is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first went and poured out his bowl into the land— and a bad and evil sore came upon the people having the mark of the beast and the ones giving worship to his image” (Revelation 13:16-18 DLNT).

    God’s word tells us that we cannot buy or sell without having the mark, or the number of its name. This number is identified as 666. The holy scriptures tell us to calculate the number 666. How do we calculate 666?

    This is where it all tops off. Counting the number of the beast 666 has been long debated throughout centuries, but has finally been uncovered in these final times by the revelation of God. What I will show you establishes itself with the scriptures the true meaning to count six-six-six.

    {In the Bible|Through God’s Holy word|Throughout the scriptures|Throughout God’s Holy Scriptures|Throughout the Bible, God uses the number three for confirming things. Below are a few examples:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    What is interesting is the the mark of the beast is revealed in detail in three different verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists three different characteristics of the given topic. The last three being the number six being used three times in a row. This is a key point to unlocking how to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my past point regarding God confirming in threes. Now logically, what would be the most rational way to add up the number 666? To add it up equally in threes based off the number. It is not rational to count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also take us back to the beginning. We cannot add it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only logical option is 6+6+6=18. What is fascinating is that the verse that tells us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark. Now what is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (bringing a combined total of three possible combinations) for placing a plus symbol in between the sixes are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Count both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in scripture where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all three values by counting 666 by moving the plus symbol around in all three possible combinations, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is fascinating concerning the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria calculates to 888. The New Testament was written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Now what is fascinating concerning the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Recall that this was the same method to get the value 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.

    With utilizing the identical formulation of counting by adding the plus symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?

    Another interesting factor to note is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? May this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what may this imply? We all know in this world we’re recognized by numbers in various forms. Starting from our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it’s plausible that this RFID microchip will contain a brand new identification that has a total of 18 characters.

    Might this be the title of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that’s recognized by 18 characters? This might match the scriptures that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right-hand or forehead, and that it also consists of the number of the beast, in the course of a future cashless money society.

    Go to: http://voice-truth.com to see all the proof!

    God’s word warns us in the end times that a false prophet will rise up performing miracles deceiving many to receive the mark of the beast:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    No matter the cost, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We’re dwelling in very prophetic times with major Biblical prophecies being fulfilled. When Donald Trump acknowledged Jerusalem as captial of Israel on December 6th of ’17, this was a big step to fulfill the Third Temple prophesied in the Holy Bible.

    The scriptures warns us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    Within the Islamic religion, there is a figure known as the Mahdi, referred to as their messiah who they are awaiting to be revealed. There are various testimonies from people online who consider this man shall be Barack Obama who may be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had strange dreams about Obama. He came on stage declaring himself to be a follower of Jesus with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, but was later revealed by his circle of relatives that he certainly is a religious Muslim.

    His real name is stated to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name switched to Barack Obama. Why would he do this?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the word “Barack” means “lighting”, and the use of “Bama” (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights” of heaven.

    The following day after the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning select 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s domestic state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama had been U.S. senator for the state of Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whoever seats himself in the Third Temple in Jerusalem, declaring himself to be God WILL BE THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

    Why do we need Jesus?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our own works can’t save us. If we step before a judge, being responsible of a criminal offense, the judge won’t judge us by the good that we have accomplished, but rather the crimes we’ve committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of moral justice, how much greater a perfect, righteous, and Holy creator?

    God has introduced to us His ethical law’s by way of the ten commandments handed to Moses at Mt. Siani. These legal guidelines were not given so we may be justified, but so that we may see the need for a saviour. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it’s an offense to steal, lie, dishonor our dad and mom, and so on.

    We may strive to comply with all the ethical guidelines of the 10 commandments, however we’ll by no means catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by perfectly fulfilling the law, living a sinless life that solely God could acomplish.

    The space between us and the law of God can by no means be reconciled by our own merit, however the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to seize hold of, by means of faith in Him, He’ll pull us up being the one to justify us. As inside the court of law, if somebody steps in and pays your fine, even though you’re guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and allow you to go free. That is what Jesus did nearly 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled inside the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His last words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    Now why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that belongs to us could not be brushed away. Because of the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it ought to be quenched and satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). That is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it satisfied God to crush His only begotten Son.

    That is due to the fact that the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it were to be poured out upon us deserve it, we’d all perish and go to hell. God created a means of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not be left in Hades, however was raised and seated on the right hand of God in power.

    So now once we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer looks at the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son residing within, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a means of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we ought to do is repent and trust in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart. Where we no longer live to exercise sin, however turn away from our sins and exercise righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we may become transformed into the image of God through faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    What are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only wants the best for us, restoring everything this world has stolen from us. This is what it means to by “holy”. To be made whole.

    He is waiting to hear from you. That God given tongue to speak language, through faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you accept the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you want His Holy Spirit living inside you transforming you into a child of God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than anyone else, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very reason He came to die for us, to rescue us from this place that we deserve.

    He describes hell as a real place where,

    “Their worm does not die
    And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    Out of all the world religions, how can we be sure the Bible got it right? The scientific data has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning in which space, time and matter were created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it right that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it also states in 7 different places that the universe is expanding thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.

    Did you know that the real Noah’s Ark was discovered where the Bible told us it would be with the correct dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of Sodom Gomorrah and the Exodus account of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is the most translated and read book in the history of the world, full of predictive prophecies, matching what we find in the book of nature. Wouldn’t you expect God’s word to be so?
