The global garage sale and the quest for more

There’s something peculiarly Western about the notion that your person, your belongings, and the space you inhabit are a burden on the rest of the world.

Lately I've been reading a lot about "stuff." How much of it we have, what we do with it while we're alive, what happens to it when we die.

Saint of the day: 120 Martyrs of China

Among the martyrs was Ann Wang, a 14-year-old girl who was killed during the Boxer Rebellion. As she was about to be beheaded, she cried out, “The door of heaven is open to all,” and repeated the name of Jesus three times.

Martyrs of China, pray for us!

Multimillion-dollar maze: Vatican trial to test finance reforms

The surprise announcement July 3 that Vatican prosecutors indicted 10 individuals and entities was the latest twist in the seemingly unending saga of the Vatican's controversial investment in a property in London's Chelsea district.

The recent indictments, especially of former Vatican officials, may prove to be a litmus test for Pope Francis' efforts to reform the Vatican's finances.

The Church’s first social justice struggle

The Church’s position on abortion is nothing new. Since the days of the early Church, Christians have fought against the practice — even when no one else would.

The early Christians' condemnation of abortion was singular in its consistency and vehemence from the very beginning.

Saints of the day: Aquila and Priscilla

Sts. Aquila and Priscilla were husband and wife and dear friends of St. Paul in the first century. In Romans 16, Paul calls them “my helpers in Christ, who have for my life laid down their own necks.”

Sts. Aquila and Priscilla, pray for us!

Micromanagement at the mother-child level

“If we ever wonder if we sometimes exalt Mary too much, science catches up with 2,000 years of revealed truth with definitive evidence Mary carried the human cells of Jesus within her own body most likely until the day she was assumed into heaven.

That factoid alone is enough for all of us to redouble our Hail Mary output.”

The second morning after undergoing colon surgery, Pope Francis was continuing to recover well and, after a restful night, he had breakfast, read the newspapers and got out of bed to walk, the Vatican press office said.

The pope underwent a scheduled surgery for a "symptomatic diverticular stenosis of the colon," the Vatican press office said Sunday.

Handicapped and ill for much of his life, Deacon Santiago ‘Jimmy’ Salas was a force to be reckoned with, whether ministering at St. Cyprian Parish or the prison.

A devotee of the Cursillo movement that trains Catholic lay people to become active leaders, Deacon Jimmy embraced the call to evangelize.

This week’s #SundayReadings reflections from Scott Hahn: Jesus will work no mighty deeds in our lives unless we abandon ourselves to him in faith.

Today's Gospel is blunt: "He was not able to perform any mighty deed there." Why?

The American creed

“History is what holds us together as one nation. How we remember our past shapes how we understand where we are in the present, and helps define our meaning and purpose as a people,” Archbishop José H. Gomez writes for #July4.

America's other founding can help us to not become prisoners of our past, defining the nation's future by the hypocrisy and injustices of our ancestors.

Like a thief in the night

Maybe you had a rough day at the office, came home thinking un-Christian things about your boss, or took your frustration and anger out on your wife and kids. You might go to bed thinking tomorrow will be better — you will act kinder, more lovingly, and more forgiving.

What if tomorrow never comes?

If pope issues the apology Canadians want, will it stick this time?

“Perhaps, in all likelihood, it depends in part on how many more gruesome revelations the future holds, and therefore how much previous apologies fade from memory in the harsh light of new truths.”

Pope Benedict met representatives of the First Nations, groups of Canada's indigenous population, in the Vatican in late April 2009.

From her daughter this morning: My mother has become quite disoriented in the last couple of months, but before that, she would often take county buses to get to the local Catholic Churches- All Souls, St Thomas More in Alhambra; San Gabriel Mission, City of Angels (downtown LA); Sacred Heart. Around town, she would walk around the immediate neighborhood. Mostly within a 5 mile radius, but she is quite frail now and walks with significant limp.

[The Key of David; The Key of Knowledge; The True Doctrine of Christ; (Revelation 3:7); (Luke 8:10; 11:52); (Isaiah 22:22)]: ******* 24/7 Bible teaching, using the Key of David https://shepherdschapel.com ******* https://www.facebook.com/AriNaccanira/photos_albums ******* Quick Reference: http://biblestudyforlife.com/key_of_david.ht ******* Proverbs 18:13 King James Version (KJV) 13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him. URGENT MESSAGE: PLEASE, FINISH THIS BIBLE STUDY. SHOW THIS TO EVERYONE WITH SPIRITUAL EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR. 2 Timothy 2:15 King James Version (KJV) 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. {[(HE=IS=A=RE+WARDER of those that diligently seek him); (John 8:31-32); (Hebrews 11)]}. Use the Key of David, or be ashamed (deceived). It is key to having the seal of God in your forehead (mind); Revelation 7; 9:4. Proverbs 1:7 King James Version (KJV) 7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. 2 Thessalonians 2 - the false Christ (Satan), will come to earth claiming to be God (6th trump). Christ Jesus returns at the 7th trump, not until = [Hebrews 9:26-28 (ONCE, AT THE END) = 1 CORINTHIANS 15:52 (AT THE LAST TRUMP) = 1 THESSALONIANS 4:17. Scripture is backed by 2, or more witnesses]. The pre-tribulation rapture doctrine is false teaching. Christ is returning for a virgin bride. Those that worship the false Christ (Satan) thinking he is the true Christ will no longer be spiritual virgins (Matthew 24:19; 25:1-13; Luke 21:23). Oil in the lamp = truth = God's Word & The Holy Spirit. The virgins rejected have "snake oil" (deceit; falsities; lies) in their lamps. Satan spreads confusion through false teaching. People often accept (wo)men's words, teachings, or doctrine as truth when it is false. THE ANY-MOMENT DOCTRINE, & PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE DOCTRINE = SATAN'S SNARE = FALSE TEACHING. Satan masquerades as an angel of light (he will pretend / claim to be Christ); (2 Corinthians 11:14 - "disguised; masquerades)." Guarding a lie with truth, Satan has many in the dark about the true plan of God (Hosea 4:6). Judgment starts at the pulpit (1 Peter 4:17; Ezekiel 9). Those that hear the truth, yet do not share it can be turned over to a reprobate mind (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12). No one can ignore scripture, and be wise. A counterfeit spirit mimics the Holy Spirit, people often mistake (evil) when it stands in the role of the genuine (Holy Spirit) on matters that an individual is deceived about because it seems holy to them. Satan uses errors in one's understanding to spread falsities, confusion, Babylon throughout the world: everywhere that a falsity, misconception, lie, or lack of knowledge exists (Matthew 16:6). When a Christian confused is in the dark about a part of God's Word, they are not aware of it (Hosea 4:6; Amos 8:11-13 - there are many pastors, yet few have the key of David). Continue in God's Word, seek, ask, knock, read for understanding, meditate on His Word, & pray for the former, and latter rain (Joel 2:23; James 5:7; Matthew 7). BELOVED, DO THE THINGS GOD INSTRUCTED TO UNDERSTAND THE END. Mark 13; Luke 21; Matthew 24 - the ones taken first are taken by the false Christ, and Almighty God is against those that teach His children to fly to save their souls (Ezekiel 13:20 KJV). Satan, using men / scribes, changed this verse in the NIV. (Kenites, the sons of Cain: Genesis 3:15-16; 1 Chronicles 2:55; Matthew 8; 16:6; 23; John 8:44-47). That should alarm you. They can be converted. Disciples remain in the field working (Matthew 24:13); Hebrews 9:26-28; 1 Thessalonians 4:17 = 1 Corinthians 15:52 (at the last trump). Deuteronomy 30:4; 32:5; Psalm 37:9-34; Proverbs 10:30; Nehemiah 1:9; Isaiah 64:4; Zephaniah 3:8-9; Isaiah 43:26 - claim God's promises, and stand (Luke 10:18-20; Psalm 91; all of them). Give the truth to your brethren. Christ is only pleased with 2 of the 7 churches because they teach the key of David (Rev. 1-3; 1 Corinthians 10:11). We know that John was called up to be shown things by God, in the spirit, ON THE LORD'S DAY = THE DAY OF THE LORD = THE BEGINNING OF THE 1,000 REIGN WITH CHRIST = THE 7th trump = THE END OF THIS WORLD AGE = IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TO BE TAUGHT TO GOD'S CHILDREN THAT THIS IS A "[rapture (not even in the Bible; Satan's doctrine)]." It is John, on the Lord's Day, in the spirit, and it is false teaching (Satanic) to teach this is a "rapture." The only reason Satan was able to deceive teachers about the false doctrine was by being hinged on the false teaching of 1 Thessalonians 4:17, which every false teacher tries to use as scriptural proof of a pre-tribulation rapture of the church. TO BE CLEAR: SATAN WILL BEGUILE MANY WELL MEANING CHRISTIANS (spoiled). Marvel not that the church is under great deception for it is written that there will be a falling away, the great apostasy. "The Mystery of Iniquity" has long been at work (2 Thessalonians 2:7). Plant the seeds, pray, and be patiently available. [Matthew 13:30 - this is at the end of the Day of the Lord, yet it is parallel with the events that will transpire before that day / 2nd Advent / 7th trump]. The disciples / saints / election / overcomers remain in the field working for a short season, until the true Christ returns (Mark 13:20; Matthew 24:22). Studying Mark 13, Luke 21, Matthew 24, and Revelation 6 together helps. Do not contradict the words, and teachings of Christ as you continue to read the Bible. This will keep you from being confused about God's Word / Will / Plan. The Word does not contradict itself, so if you believe the church is raptured by Christ Jesus, you are incorrect, according to Christ. MARK 13 - do not go against anything Christ laid out line by line, precept by precept, about the events that consummate the end of this age, and you will be rightly (discerning) the Word. 1 Thessalonians 4 ~ This was originally written in Greek, a fixed language. English is not a fixed language, and that puts a spin on things. It is important to take your concordance, and study to the etymology, or you will run into confusion (Babylon; babyl; darkness; Satan's kingdom). Greek, being a fixed language, does not allow the subject to change. The subject here is: "where are the dead?" The subject cannot change to a false teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture. The second reference to this scripture is (1 Corinthians 15:50-55 - "at the last trump)." 1 Thessalonians 4:4). Stick with Christ and do not be a part of worshipping false idols, religions, other gods. 5). Love is honest, genuine, and true. 7). Holiness is bringing His Word forth, and not deceiving people. 10). Keep doing missionary work and spreading the Word. 11). "Quiet" = "sincere" (understood it). 13). "I don't want you to be ignorant about the dead, and where they are." The heathen don't know where the dead are. [Reference: Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 (the spirit returns to the Father); (2 Corinthians 5:7-8)]. 14). They are already with Him, all of the dead, every one. 15). [Reference: Ecclesiastes 12:7-8; "prevent" = "precede" (Greek). They are already gone. There is no way to beat them there. Some are on the wrong side of the gulf]. 16). The Trump of God is the last trump. The dead in Christ rise first because they are with Him. A person's spirit does not remain in the ground. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust for our earthly bodies have served their purposes. [Reference: 1 Corinthians 15:50-55 (50). Flesh gets crippled, cannot be eternal. (52). LAST TRUMP]. 17). Paul spoke colloquial Greek. "Air" = (Greek: (aer) (ah-ayr'); from aemi: "To breathe unconsciously, i.e. respire; by analogy to blow): "air" (as naturally circumambient). We are caught up in that spiritual body with the Lord; the breath of life; face; pneuma. "Clouds" [Reference: Hebrews 12:1 (group, swarm, or gathering of witnesses; army that is coming with Christ)]: [Reference: Ezekiel 13:2-3, 17-21: here, "women" mean children of Israel, the seed of the nation (God's people). God is clearly AGAINST those that teach His people to fly to save their souls]. ^ There must be a 2nd witness to this passage of scripture = 1 Corinthians 15:50-55 - VERSE 52 (AT THE LAST TRUMP). In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul makes it PERFECTLY CLEAR that there is no Pre-Tribulation "Rapture." We are to remain in the field, working until Christ's return, at the LAST TRUMP. Ezekiel 13:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. GOD is against those that teach His children to fly to save their souls. Those taken from the field in Matthew 24 are taken in judgment. God did not tell us to put on the Gospel armor so that we could fly away. [2 Thessalonians 2; 1 Thessalonians 5 ~ the "any-time doctrine" is false teaching, the anti-Christ / Satan / false Christ will come at the 6th trump, pretending to be Christ. The true Christ will not return until the 7th (last trump), as it is written (1 Corinthians 15:52; Hebrews 9:26; 1 Thes. 4:17)]. {[Acts 1:1-11 / Zechariah 14:4] - HIS FEET WILL TOUCH THE GROUND}; {Zechariah 9:9-10 (verse 9 = 1st advent); [(verse 10 = 2nd advent); (Revelation 20:4); (Hebrews 9:26); (Zechariah 9:10)]}. We will reign with Christ, on the Earth, for 1,000 years (the Day of The Lord; 2 Peter 3:8). God Almighty will come to Earth, establishing His Kingdom for ever in Jerusalem at the end of the Day of THE LORD, as it is written. You do not want to fly away with Satan (again, for emphasis). Revelation 3:7). "Philadelphia" (Brotherly Love). It is critical to understand: the key of David unlocks the meats of the true doctrine of God's Word, and includes knowing the genealogy of David, through which Christ came, and the genealogy of Cain, through which the Kenites came. It is much more than genealogy. This is imperative for understanding the mystery of the Kingdom. Study the mystery of the Kingdom, and the mystery of iniquity. [Note: the church members of Smyrna's teachings are this, as will be all of the church members]. The key of David unlocks the deeper understandings of God's Word, and locks God's Word whereby men cannot change it, as they have with many translations (the Kenites; Genesis 3:15-16; 1 Chronicles 2:55; Luke 11:52; John 8:44-45; Revelation 2:9; 3:9). CHRIST=THE=LIVING=WORD=HAS=THE=KEY. You must get it by following His instructions, which includes continuing in His Word, meditating on His Word, praying on His Word, asking, seeking, and knocking about His Word so that He will give you revelation based on the truth of His Word. The Key of David is the truth of God's Word (the true doctrine of Christ; Deuteronomy 32:2). All authority has been given to Christ, and what He opens, or closes, no man can defy (Isaiah 22:22; Matthew 28:18). 8). "I know thy works" (HE=HAS=BEEN=WATCHING); (James 2:14-26). "Open door, and no man can shut it" (once you know the truth, you cannot be deceived. Always stick to the truth, it is a guarantee; Isaiah 43:26). "Yehovah" (YHVH; Yahaveh; THE=SACRED=NAME of GOD; YH; HalleluYah)! There is no letter "J" in the Hebrew alphabet. You have been true to Him, and not denied His name, whom He said is Christ (Acts 4:12; 20:28). 9). All are gathered at Christ's feet, and bow to Him. It is not us they will bow to. We will be worshipping at the feet of Christ. 10). We know that Satan (the desolator) is the abomination of desolation, spoken of by the prophet (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14), and will come as the anti-Christ. Therefore, we are not unsuspecting, deceived, or tempted to worship Satan, pretending to be Christ (2 Thessalonians 2). You are "kept" by having, and teaching this knowledge (the seal of God) in your forehead (Revelation 9:4) to others (Matthew 9:35-38; Luke 10; 1 Thessalonians 5). You have "kept the word of my patience" (Zephaniah 3:8-9; Isaiah 30:18; 33:2; 64:4; Psalm 25:3; 37:34; 62:5; 130:5; Proverbs 10:30; 27:14; James 5:7; Galatians 5:5; Hebrews 10:36; you teach others to wait upon the Lord, and that Satan comes first pretending to be Christ; 2 Thessalonians 2; Ezekiel 13:20 - you know and teach that the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine is false teaching, meaning that it is Satanic at its core). You are not deceived, and you do not help support the Satanic deception that comes over the world through false teachings, lies, or any other evils you are aware of (NASA lies: see album P.T.A. Meeting in the lecture notes); (Proverbs 28:13). You are not tempted during the hour of temptation because you know that Satan is a fake, claiming to be Christ. "Them that dwell upon the earth" (God does not dwell upon the earth, men do. His Holy Spirit, Ruach, dominates the earth, but this is why it is stated as it is in the English translation; Psalm 91; Luke 10:17-20). You are blessed indeed by having been given the key of David. Some will be delivered up to the false Christ, and it will turn to them for a testimony (Mark 13; Luke 12:10 - refusal to let THE=HOLY=SPIRIT=GOD=CHRIST=ACTS 20:28 speak through you is the unpardonable sin, and the Pentecostal, or cloven tongue is understood by all who hear it; Luke 21; Matthew 24 - "he that endures to the end, the same shall be saved" = remain true to GOD=CHRIST=THE HOLY SPIRIT, whether you be alive and remain until Christ returns at the end, or you be slain in the physical before that great Day of the Lord, beginning at the 2nd Advent); [end time events: Daniel 9:27; 12:12; Zechariah 4; Revelation 9; 11; 13; time of the Gentiles, 2 witnesses, the abomination of desolation, the anti-Christ, and the return of Christ / 2nd Advent. 1,335 days is the span these events take place within. The 7 year tribulation period is the 70th week / 1 week of years = 7 years, shortened by Christ: Mark 13:20; Matthew 24:22]. God has purposed each one's life in a certain capacity of service unto Him. As it is written in Hosea, James, and in other places: the tribes of Israel were scattered abroad the world, and not knowing now who they are. [Philippians 2 - come to God with a pure heart, and willing to obey to obtain your missions / purposes = to know what you shall do = work out your own salvation, with / by Him; Jeremiah 33:3; John 15: be willing to lay it down for GOD=IS=LOVE; Genesis 22:12; James 1; Philippians 1]. 11). "No man take thy crown" (the man of sin, Satan, the son of perdition, or by a false teacher). Worshipping the false Christ is one way a person would lose their crown. 12). "Overcometh" (Mark 13; Luke 21; Matthew 24; Deuteronomy 32; Revelation 12:11-17). "Pillar in the temple," (spiritually). He is the Temple, the Word, and the Body (Revelation 21:22-27); (Isaiah 64:4). 13). Tuned to the Holy Spirit (discernment). 15). Be morally and spiritually correct. Stand for the truth, and be depended on for doing it. We need works (James 2:14-26). 18). Pray for spiritual "(eyes to see, and ears to hear)." Also, pray for the former rain, and the latter rain. Be awake, watching, sound the alarm, working in the field, and having understanding (Revelation 7:1-3; Revelation 9). "Buy gold tried by the fire" = works. The more you burn gold, the purer it gets. It is not that gold will hold a high future value, it is that it works well as a teaching aid for us to understand. God is speaking about having the truth of His Word / Will / Plan, and preaching / sharing / teaching it to others. "...white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear" [Your righteous acts weave together the linens you will wear in heaven (the presence of God; Jerusalem, during the Day of the Lord); (Revelation 14:13; 16:15; 19:8); (James 2:14-26); (Matthew 22:11-14); (Revelation 3:8 - I know thy works)]. 19). God will forgive. He loves, and corrects His children. We must do it His way. (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; Mark 1:15). 20). Open your mind (heart) to Him = be completely honest with Him, and yourself. He wants you to know His Word / Will / Plan with great understanding, and He will use you to perform His purposes for your life (service). He opens the door to understanding, removes confusion, brings in peace, contentment, and rest (John 15:4-6: abide). He can help you become the best person you can (Philippians 1:6). Seek, ask, and knock to receive revelation from His Word. Christ is the Prince of Peace, but there will not be world peace until after God's wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:3-7). 21). Revelation 12:7-11. Don't fall away in the great apostasy by worshipping the false Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 - understand it, and never contradict it in your interpretation of God's Word. Your heavenly Father is your best friend, and if you don't talk with Him (seek Him), you are not going to understand the end. It takes more than reading His Word for understanding (Matthew 7). 22). Christ is only pleased with 2 of the 7 churches in the many membered ONE body of Christ's Church (Revelation 1:11). It is our command to bring that many membered body into one accord. That which is outside of Christ's doctrine is not in the body (1 Corinthians 3). The Kingdom is like a net cast, and those things that don't belong are cast out. God gives us the opportunity to make corrections before receiving judgment. Do not be one that worships the false Christ. They will be attending a false wedding, having been beguiled by Satan, the false Christ. This is a test. IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN EXACTLY AS GOD SAID IT WILL (absolute guarantee). No teacher of God's Word is able to disprove the true doctrine of Christ = the Key of David. Once you have / know / understand it, you have clarity, and no matter who the pastors, elders, deacons, teachers, or disciples are, their misunderstandings are immediately evident to you. God expects you to give them the truth (parable of the talents = remnant truth; Matthew 25:14-30. Not all will have pliable hearts, the time, or attention span to try to understand the truth. Be patient, plant the seeds, and be there / ready for them to answer questions with scripture (2 Timothy 4:2); [Amos 8:11-13; this knowledge is key to the seal of God in your forehead (mind); Revelation 7; 9:4]. Deuteronomy 30:4; Nehemiah 1:9; Isaiah 64:4; Zephaniah 3:8-9; Psalm 37:34; Proverbs 10:30. As long as you are still in this flesh body, Christ has not returned (1 Thessalonians 4:17 = 1 Corinthians 15:52 - at the Last trump)]. God is on the throne, and He knows your every thought. Talk to Him, and stay in His Word. Through Christ, all things are possible (John 16:33). Operate in truth, and dispel all lies. This too shall pass.
