God's Throne the heaven of heavens is in the north

interesting thing emailed to me from, some people whose other ideas are
a mix of good and bad so I won't name them lest they be a bad influence.
(yeah on the one hand we might be Babylon and evangelical church has
definitely struck a deal made in hell in joining with big money and
government and the intelligence community which is a major part of the
swampy deep state. But there are problems smoothly interspersed with all
this and dubious presuppositions.)

Doing research on some antiquity stuff, I noticed there seemed to be a
very ancient tradition of facing north to worship, a holdover from belief
in the True God YHWH.



Whenever you ask a child, "Where is heaven?" they will usually point straight up. Twelve hours later if they were still pointing upward, they would be pointing in a totally different direction. Because the earth is turning on its axis constantly, the direction (when you point upward) is constantly changing. So then, where is heaven?
It appears from a study of the Scriptures that heaven is located in the north in our universe, and that is precisely why, when the priests offered sacrifices in the Old Testament, they would offer them northward toward the Lord. Notice what Moses said in Leviticus 1:11:
"And he shall kill the sacrifice on the side of the altar northward before the Lord: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar."

The implication is clear: the Lord's throne is in the north. "Northward before the Lord," says God's Word.
North is always the same direction from this planet no matter what time of day. If you were to point to the north in the morning, twelve hours later you would still be pointing in the same direction. No matter where the earth is in its orbit about the sun, north is always the same direction in relationship to the earth. So no matter what time of day or what time of year, north is always the same direction.
Moreover, the Bible suggests that salvation comes from the north. In Psalms 75:6 we read,
"For salvation cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south."
Therefore, it must come from the north since it is the only choice left.
Thirty-five hundred years ago in the book of Job in the Old Testament, God gave us an amazing. Job 26:7 says, He -
"... stretcheth out the north over the empty place."


Regarding the exact location of heaven, Sarah Knapton, the Science Editor for Britain's Daily Telegraph, reports that astronomers have now discovered a curious empty section which is missing around 10,000 galaxies - a super void, which is 1.8 billion light-years across. István Szapudi of the University of Hawaii at Manoa described the object as possibly "the largest individual system ever identified by humanity." The Scriptures tell us that beyond this void is where heaven is.
Lucifer (Satan) in his rebellion (ie., when he tried to overthrow God in "eternity past") spoke of this void in the north. Isaiah 14:13 tells us,
"For thou [Satan] hast said in thine heart, I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the side of the north."

The Fall Of Satan

"12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north..." (Isaiah 14:12-13)
This undoubtedly refers to this empty space in the north where there are no stars.
Another fascinating passage of Scripture regarding the place where God's throne is, is found in Psalms 48:1-2:
"Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King."

Of COURSE Mueller INDICTS 12 Russian military officers for 2016 election meddling just DAYS before Trump meets Putin

Special counsel Robert Mueller claims to be investigating a ‘conspiracy’ between members of POTUS Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government. What is truly sickening about it is that  he’s one of them actually  in on a conspiracy — to undermine our duly-elected president.

On Friday, another co-conspirator, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, announced that Mueller has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for allegedly  meddling in the 2016 election.

And this comes just a few days before Monday’s face-to-face meeting in Helsinki between POTUS Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Timing is everything, right?
The disgusting Deep State’s military-industrial complex can’t have peace with Russia and China because it would wither and lose its power and influence. Much better to remain on a hair-trigger nuclear status with both countries so we can blow each to bits someday!

As for the indictment, Mueller can’t seriously believe that Putin is going to surrender 12 of his GRU officers to the United States for a sham trial…does he? Because he didn’t believe that 13 other Russians he indicted earlier were going to fight back in court — until they did. Discovery in that case is ongoing.

How do we know this is bogus? Let us count the ways:

#1 - WikiLeaks founder and editor Julian Assange has said repeatedly that Russia did not hack the DNC’s emails and has even promised to provide evidence of same in exchange for a pardon. Assange and WikiLeaks  have never been proven wrong or to have lied.

#2 - A group of former U.S. intelligence officials including some former NSA agents has said they have examined the cyber-forensic evidence and have concluded that the DNC servers were not hacked. What’s more, the DNC has never allowed its servers to be examined by the FBI’s cyber-forensics team; so how can Mueller  know that “Russian officers” hacked them?

#3 - Philip Giraldi, a former CIA counterterrorism expert, military officer and recognized intelligence authority, in a December 2016 Facebook post, said there is “no evidence” to support the Obama administration accusation Russia was involved in the DNC ‘hack.’ He wrote that “apart from assertions of Russian activity connected to an unnamed political party, [the report] provides absolutely no evidence that the alleged intrusions into the DNC servers were anything beyond normal intelligence agency probing for vulnerabilities.” “In fact,” he adds, “it doesn’t even provide the evidence for that.”

#4 - The Russian “counterintelligence” investigation into the Trump campaign was bogus. It was based on a phony “dossier” that  came in three different versions — none of which have been substantiated.

#5 - Never forget that James Comey leaked  classified memos in order to trigger Mueller’s appointment. The whole thing was a set-up; Hillary Clinton is the real criminal here but she was  exonerated so she could remain in the race and ‘beat Donald Trump’ — or so everyone thought.

That Jeff Sessions has allowed this clown show to continue is a disgrace. Like POTUS Trump said, a make-believe probe which is wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars is also preventing our president  from pursuing his vision of foreign policy, which is his right. As we have noted, that’s a national security threat.

At least he’s not trying to enrich a terrorist-supporting regime (Iran) while making “deals” that will someday lead it to nuclear weapons.

Someday the guilty will be made to pay. And POTUS Trump won’t be among them because the only thing he’s done is dare to run for the presidency…and win.

Proverbs 31:10 et seq

The Virtuous Woman (or valorous, excellent, of noble character)
Proverbs 31:10-30 totally wrecks the unbiblical notions of what women should be like, and what a man
should find acceptable. An awful lot of what is taught as "biblical" is just baptized sin. Pride, ambition,
vainglory, dishonesty, cowardice, self indulgence are all denounced everywhere else, but get a free pass
if they are linked to women or men as part of their supposed created nature.

The Masoretic based KJV and others, and the Septuagint (LXX) from older texts than the Masoretic differ
slightly, but add up to the same thing.

"11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life."  no need of or temptation to dubioius
or wrong means of making money, involvement in pluder, or evenjust the results of the warfare
of business and the marketplace.

The Septuagint "Theheart ofher husband trusts  in her she will not be at a loss forfine

Hereit is clear as implied in the Masoretic, that she is one who brings home the bread a lot,
theone who comes home with the spoils of the competition of the marketplace. (The Talmud
saysthe text the Masoretics based on was flawed when they got it, they just froze it from more
errors. The Qumran Scrolls often agree with the LXX against the Masoretic,s omketimes a third
variantisshown to have exited, but they all add up to the same thing.

"13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
[aggressive independent farming savvy businesswoman.]

17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
[very masculine terminology here. Likely does a lot of her own field work, nothing
unusual in itself for women in some parts of Asia and Africa.]

18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
[keeps track of finances and profit and loss not an airhead.]

19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
[LXX says she is kind to her kids so they become rich, i.e., not torn down or smothered
but built up to get out and things done, incl. the females are raised this way since
it doesn't specify sons.]"

Notice that her husband is proud of her and he is also well known sits with the elders
in the cfity  gates, soshe is well known also.

Somuch for man the provider woman the housekeeper dependent and manipulator.
And theidea that remarriage was allowed because a woman couldn't survive without
marrying for money is also false.

the quest for unity in American Orthodoxy

the situation described in the article below is one of the reasons I OPPOSE a self governing American ORthodox Church. as for canonical problems, the Roman Empire had more than one Metropolitan or Patriarch in its borders and the rule was one bishop per city not per region. I think the USA can manage the same way."
This is what I sent to the Orthodox Christian Laity group that sent me an email
seems their 11th get together called for a united Orthodox Church in America.
the history of this sort of thing is complicated, and generally such scream about canonical impropriety of the setup now, ignoring more important canonical improprieties that go on all the time regarding morals, finances, etc. some jurisdictions are better than others.
The Russians were the first in North America as per Orthodox Christianity. Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and part of San Francisco, Ft. Ross (the Bear in the California flag refers to the Russian part of California history, limited in scope and eclipsed by the Spanish.) When the Arab Christians and the Greeks arrived, the Russians provided clergy then they got their own from their home patriarchates.
The Orthodox Church in America, heavily Slavic in origin with connections to the dubious segment of the Russian expatriate community, two or three times declared themselves THE Orthodox Church in America, the last time getting a tomos of autocephaly from the Russian ORthodox Church in Moscow, the so called living church, which Stalin had reestablished as a patriarchate. The ROC had been disestablished as a patriarchate and made a department of the government by Tsar Peter the Great. reestablishing the patriarchate had been discussed during the interim between the Tsar Nicholas II's abdication and the Bolshevik revolution itself, but the church was put on the run with the rest of the "white Russians."
Meanwhile as per canon 28 of the Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon of AD 451 at a city in Asia Minor aka Anatolia now called Turkey, the Ecumenical Patriarchate or Greek Orthodox Church headquartered in a backwater of Constantinople now called Istanbul claims authority over all the barbarians including us, that didn't already have a Patriarch at the time. (since then various nations acquired their own patriarchate status so there are now 15 autocephalous churches which are canonical and in communion with each other, except for the spat between the Antiochian Patriarchate, which has operated out of Damascus for the past 500 or 600 years I forget why and the Jerusalem Patriarchate over Qatar's ORthodox Christians.)

Evil and human depravity – and then there’s Hamas too

by Melanie Phillips

When confronted with absolute evil or the depths of human depravity, some of us experience a very particular kind of depression. It’s as if we just can’t cope with such a repudiation of humanity.
Some experience it when exposed to the details of child sexual abuse. And some feel it over the libelous falsehoods hurled at Israel whenever it’s forced to defend itself against genocidal fanatics, as happened this week in the Hamas onslaught on the Gaza border fence.
There is actually a strong thematic connection between these twin evils.
Two awful features are associated with child sexual abuse over and above the assaults themselves.
The first is the way the perpetrator projects all blame onto his victim. She led him on, he tells himself, she dressed like a tart, she was asking for it and so on. In his mind, he must rob his victim of her innocence in order to deny that she is a victim and thus justify himself.
There’s something very similar about the West’s systematic abuse of Israel. There’s a refusal to acknowledge that Israel is the victim of Arab and Muslim exterminatory violence.
Instead, Israel-abusers project that violence onto Israel. It is Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian Arabs that is said to have driven them in despair to act as they do. So Israel deserves its punishment.
We’ve been watching this sickening spectacle again this week from the usual suspects: the United Nations and European Union, NGOs, politicians, and above all, the media.
With the riots in Gaza, they fell over themselves to mouth the murderous script Hamas had given them—that these were spontaneous, peaceful protests against the hellish conditions imposed upon Gaza by Israel, whose soldiers proceeded to kill around 60 unarmed Arabs out of sheer trigger-happy brutality.
These were all incendiary lies. The riots that reached a crescendo this week weren’t a protest but, in the words of Hamas itself, an attempted invasion intended to slaughter Jews and destroy Israel.
A report published this week by the High Level Military Group of distinguished military figures around the world describes these onslaughts over the past six weeks as “carefully planned and orchestrated military operations intended to break through the border of a sovereign state and commit mass murder in the communities beyond, using their own civilians as cover. The purpose: to criminalise and isolate the State of Israel.”
The BBC and other journalists in the United States, Canada and elsewhere howled down those who said this was organized by Hamas and accused Israel instead of using live fire against unarmed demonstrators.
Israel said it had so far identified 24 of the dead as Hamas terrorists. On Wednesday, however, a senior Hamas official declared that no fewer than 50 of the 62 said to have been killed were its own operatives.
In other words, the Israel Defense Forces had been remarkably careful not to kill the civilians whom Hamas had pushed to the front as cannon fodder. No other army in the world would have been so scrupulous in the face of a murderous mob 40,000-strong trying to storm its border. Yet the media has vilified the IDF instead.
The rioters were armed with IEDs, petrol bombs and guns. They dispatched burning kites to set fire to Israeli farmland. On Facebook they were urged to “bring a knife, dagger or handgun” in order to kidnap Israeli civilians and murder Israeli soldiers. The Western media ignored all this.
The IDF leafletted Gazans, warning them not to assemble at the fence; then they used tear gas and foul-smelling “Skunk” sprays; then they fired warning shots; then they shot at legs. They only used lethal force when facing a direct threat posed through weapons or explosives. The Western media ignored all this.
Hamas blew up its own fuel terminals three times; it wrecked conveyor belts used to bring in construction materials and animal feed; when Israel opened the border crossing for humanitarian relief, Hamas sent back trucks of medical aid, food and other supplies.
The Western media ignored all this, blaming Israel for Gaza’s “hellish” conditions. Britain’s Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn condemned Israel’s “slaughter” of “dozens of unarmed protesters.” British Prime Minister Theresa May called for an inquiry into the “deeply troubling” loss of life and Israel’s use of live fire.
Grotesquely singling out Israel as an endemic abuser of human rights is now the default position in the West. Israel is therefore in effect the abused child of the world.
Its abusers aren’t just the Arabs and Muslims who continuously try to murder Jews and steal their country; they are also the BBC, Britain’s Channel Four News, America’s NBC, Canada’s CBC and numerous newspapers throughout the West.
But there’s a second awful feature that these two forms of abuse share. Tragically, the sexually abused child believes the reason she was abused must be something really bad she herself has done. Otherwise, why else would she have been attacked?
In exactly the same way, Jews over the centuries have asked why the world hates them with such unique ferocity—and the answer reached by a distressing number is that it must be because of something uniquely hateful in them.
Today, such Jews turn against Israel, swallowing and regurgitating the disgusting falsehoods and distortions perpetrated by the enemies of the Jewish people. And some of those Jews, in both the Diaspora and Israel, shamefully took part in this week’s anti-Israel verbal auto-da-fé.
The unanswerable question, though, is why Israel is abused like this. Plausible factors such as anti-colonialist ideology or plain ignorance don’t begin to explain the unique virulence of this hatred, and its obsessional and paranoid nature.
The essence of it is the refusal to view Israel as victimized. And the essence of that is the unhinged belief that the Jews are all-powerful. So if Israel exercises its undoubted military power—even though it only ever does so to defend its citizens’ lives—this gives traction to the ancient anti-Semitic trope.
Hence the obscene outrage voiced by some that no Israelis were killed at the Gaza border—imbecilically offered as proof of Israeli aggression. The fact that the Jews can now defend themselves is considered unacceptable.
So these Israel-abusers champion instead those who send flaming kites decorated with swastikas to incinerate Israel and its people, while describing the Jews defending their country as latter-day Nazis.
It isn’t just the Hamas who are evil. There’s a profound moral and spiritual sickness in the West, too.

A classic double misunderstanding about Israel

" a talk, given by Rabbi David Hartman, in 1990. He was discussing Christian attitudes towards Israel in relation to the Holocaust. The excerpts are as reported in the Nov. 2, 1990 issue of the Long Island Jewish World.

"Christianity sees itself as the New Israel, God's newest revelation, that is to replace Judaism. Why do you think the Pope refuses to recognize Jerusalem as the capital? Because if it is, then the Jewish exile has ended. And if the Jewish exile has ended, then Christianity cannot explain its own tradition. Because its own tradition is parasitic on God's rejection of Israel."

"Do you know what's at stake? What do you think; just some sort of argument going on? The fundamental vision of Christianity was parasitic on the idea that God's initial revelation... the [Jewish] experiment ... did not work." Hartman said that Christianity viewed the suffering and exile of the Jewish people as punishment from God for not accepting the new message.

"As long as we were weak, as long as we were homeless, then Christian theology had a living witness to their claim to be the New Israel. Jews in exile confirmed the claim of a new revelation of Jesus. This is central to Christian thology."

Hartman stressed that suffering is a symbol Christians can deal with. "That is why Christians could handle the Holocaust. Because the Holocaust deals with Jewish suffering, and also because Jews are a suffering people, a crucified people. Crucifixion is a symbol Christians can deal with."
"They *cannot* deal with a living rebirth of the Jewish people in Jerusalem. And that is why I claim that the most important struggle in human history today is not the Holocaust - we should not be a Holocaust people - but a people reborn in Jerusalem." " posted during one of the squabbles that break out and back in 2009.

misunderstanding one: replacement theology, which might indeed feel challenged by Jewish control of the land of Israel. But Romans chapter 11 and the Prophets rule this out anyway. The Jews are not totally cast off but are the root that bears the branches the church, and will be restored eventually. Though Christians are spiritual Israel, physical Israel is not irrelevant.

misunderstanding two: that Christianity is parasitic on Judaism, and rendered irrelevant and a failure by restoration of Jews to the Land of Israel. No, in fact this is in line with Paul and the Prophets, for the Jews would be restored to the land in an unclean condition and cleansed later (Ezekiel) and will be practicing Orthodox Jewish worship sex separatist when Jesus comes back (Zechariah), and God will make Jerusalem a burden for all nations (ongoing and maybe getting more so I forget which Prophet's book that is in), and that eventually all Israel incl. physical will be saved.

the restoration of Jewish control in the land of Israel, then, is not in any way contradictory to Christianity. And membership in the Kingdom of Heaven is not the same thing as title to real estate.
