    I'm not sure what I would ask, but this might be the question the martyrs might ask...

    Revelation 6:

    "9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled."

    blood: 129. haima :
    blood.

    Of uncertain derivation; blood, literally (of men or animals), figuratively (the juice of grapes) or specially (the atoning blood of Christ); by implication, bloodshed, also kindred -- blood.

    of us:
    1473. egó
    I, me.

    A primary pronoun of the first person I (only expressed when emphatic) -- I, me. For the other cases and the plural see eme, emoi, emou, hemas, hemeis, hemin, hemon, etc.


    judge: 2919. krinó
    decree, determine, judge

    Properly, to distinguish, i.e. Decide (mentally or judicially); by implication, to try, condemn, punish -- avenge, conclude, condemn, damn, decree, determine, esteem, judge, go to (sue at the) law, ordain, call in question, sentence to, think.

    avenge:
    1556. ekdikeó
    avenge.

    From ekdikos; to vindicate, retaliate, punish -- a (re-)venge.

    1558. ekdikos
    avenger.

    From ek and dike; carrying justice out, i.e. A punisher -- a (re-)venger.

    1 John 3:15 "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him."

    Matthew 24:12 "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold."


    There is a difference between being 'hated' by others and 'living' under unjust Government systems. Those Laws which were established to deter the iniquity from abounding would have failed to be kept maintained. And so this is where the the love of many grows cold from.

    The strange thing though is that these rulers and 'powers' of authority and even 'vocations' are 'ordained' of by God.

    Why would any well adept and knowledgeable person 'hire' any person that is not going to upkeep their job duties? And why would any well adept and knowledgeable person not 'fire' or let go any person that is not upkeeping their job duties?

    death and hell will be cast into the lake of 'fire' but why not any ordained person who is not keeping to the laws which help keep society safe and well, fired?


    Is it better to 'let go' of ordained 'workers' which do not upkeep their duties so that the citizens can be kept in safety and well being, away from being indoctrinated into unrighteous living? Or is it better to allow them to remain in their job positions while being paid?

    I would ask whether I should wear black shoes or brown shoes with this outfit.

    I expect to meet him one of these days.......
    and I plan to ask Messiah Yeshua - Jesus if He would like to play a little joke on those of His Bride...... who haven't yet came up to meet him in the air????? (I Corinthians 15)..... dead in Christ rise first...... then even if there is a two second pause before the living in Messiah Yeshua rise.... an opportunity exists for that slight pause......

    Hal Lindsay theology is actually pretty awful...........
    if you happen to meet Him before I do............... can you guess what I have in mind?

    Tecoyah....... I dare you to raise your right hand in the air.... quote Isaiah 45:1 with some jealousy and chutzpah....... and ask Messiah Yeshua - Jesus to take YOU by the right hand?

    I did.....
    not long after Yom Kippur 1990.......
    If Yair Davidiy is correct.......(and he is challenging to disprove)... then many more of us have some Jewish blood in our veins than we might tend to imagine so.......

    Zechariah 12:8

    In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

    Okay....I did as you dared....nothing happened. When I was much younger I even read his book and prayed to him....nothing happened. I was going to ask him to cure me of my MS but decided to take my meds instead. I might even have some Jewish blood/genetics within me but who knows since those Jews are not the Jews of today,There are even black Jews I heard tell. As far as the "Lost Tribes" the topic is rather irrelevant outside fable and extremist dogma, but you go right ahead and believe whatever makes you feel good.

    One year from today try to tell me that you still feel nothing!

    This last week was an astonishing one for our whole family...... but my wife and I are truly glad to be seeing our daughter given more of the Holy Spirit than either of us have.

    AA took the challenge as well.........
    and a while later got this prediction:

    Like I said...whatever makes you feel good. I have noted so many Christian prediction come and go they are simply ignored anymore, but the 3rd temple one is particularly annoying and if it ever came true I would find it hard to celebrate the end of this world and everyone I love.

    That is what a lot of people believe but.......
    I am convinced that the building of the Jerusalem Third Temple sets the stage for the fulfillment of Ezekiel chapter 47..... with living waters, both literal and invisible flowing from literal and metaphorical Jerusalem...... as well as from Jews and Christians and everybody who taps into the source of those living waters..........
    which sets the stage for utopia on earth?!

    Howard Storm Ph. D. was shown that G-d wants this to happen by 2185.... but we human have the power to make choices that can greatly vary the time line...... or even result in the near total depopulation of the earth..........

    Ezekiel 47:1


    Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.

    Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.

    ......

    Eze 47:8

    Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.

    And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.

    Whoever produced this video.......
    did a great job of asking what G-d might ask of devout Christians or Muslims........
    or of an Atheist after they die.

    If.... Atheists..... . have humility and love.......
    then they are in a far, far, far, far, far better place than a Christian who really believe in and teaches
    about an unjust Messiah Yeshua - Jesus who approaches others...... like they themselves do.

    Former Atheist Mellen Benedict got a controversial but fascinating answer to that question:

    I would ask who does he favor...good or evil? Since evil people always seem to get further in this world, maybe God likes them better? And if so, wouldn't that mean he himself is evil?

    'Whats the healthiest beer?'

    Part of our journey is figuring out the answers to existance for ourselves. I think God has done all that is doable to set us on our path(s). Its up to us from here on out. We will be and do whatever we decide.

    I believe we will be able to ask God these questions one day, but it won't be necessary because we'll have answered them ourselves, and we'll be far better having strived to do it than we would be if He had merely told us.

    But I would like to know which beer is actually good for me.

    I don't believe in much of anything about religion except the existence of the Anti Christ...I know he's real because he was our former president.
