Like the French Revolution, when history and reason goes out the window things tend to get violent. Once the revolutionaries had killed all they could get their hands on, it was time to do away with Christianity for good. Let us no longer count time in B.C. and A.D. but start over with counting time. Once we are at it let us celebrate the creature rather than the Creator, and since we have ten fingers, let us fully institute the metric system. One day is ten hours, one hour is one hundred minutes, one minute is 100 seconds. One week is 10 days, one month is 3 weeks.
But one year is still 12 three week months, so they had to add five or six days at the end to make it a true solar year. The extra days were given special names and were meant for celebration, somewhat like today’s Kwanzaa, also instituted to get rid of Christianity.
Needless to say, this did not last very long, but it caused a lot of damage.
ISIS worked the same way, erase history and start over. As a footnote: Former President Obama insisted on calling it ISIL; he gave ISIS the whole Levant, which includes Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and North West Saudi Arabia.
Which leads us the similarities with Antifa. They too are trying to erase history. In their case they are trying to erase the shameful connection between the Democratic Party and the Civil War statues dotting the South. The Generals and civic leaders were all Democrats. O, the irony of it all!
Down they come!
All with the apparent approval of the local City (Democratic) government.
One thing still puzzles me. Why the hatred for Cristóbal Colón. His statue was decpitated, then torn down in many places?
2 Kings 14:25 He was the one who restored the boundaries of Israel from Lebo Hamath to the Dead Sea, in accordance with the word of the Lord, the God of Israel, spoken through his servant Jonah son of Amittai, the prophet from Gath Hepher.
Gath Hepher is only a few miles north of Nazareth, in Galilee. Jonah was a prophet coming out of Galilee. Yet the Pharisees said to Nicodemus in John 7:52 They replied, “Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee.”
Jonah offered himself willingly, and in so doing became a type of Christ
This is the sign of Jonah. He was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
Jonah in a way was dead, buried and resurrected, a type of Christ.
Something had happened to prepare Nineveh, a Solar eclipse.
The path of totality of the Bur-Sagale Eclipse, which is one of the most famous solar eclipses in ancient history, occurred just north of Nineveh on 15th June, 763BC during the reign of King Ashur-Dan III of Assyria, and was recorded for posterity in the Assyrian Eponym Canon – a series of cuneiform tablets discovered in the 19th century.
Even though Jonah obeyed God and did His will, he was still full of hate towards the Ninevehites, remembering all the evil they had done to the Israelites during the ages.
God still provides a lesson for Jonah.
So God has compassion on children and animals. The Ninevehites repented after the sign of total eclipse, and then Jonah came after God had made the people receptive.
On Monday is the first day of Elul, the last secular month in th Jewish calendar. Elul is the month of last harvest, final gathering and repentance as preparation for the new year. The eclipse of April 8, 2024 is on the first day of Nisan, the beginning of the sacred new year in the Jewish calendar.
One cannot help but notice the two total eclipses form a cross right where the three mighty rivers Missouri, Mississippi and Ohio rivers combine into the lower Mississippi. They combine right over the New Madrid earthquake area.
Is this a sign from God mentioned in Isaiah 18:7 “At that time gifts will be brought to the Lord Almighty from a people tall and smooth-skinned, from a people feared far and wide, an aggressive nation of strange speech, whose land is divided by rivers— the gifts will be brought to Mount Zion, the place of the Name of the Lord Almighty.” ?
The Mississippi rever divides the United States into “West of the Mississippi” and “East of the Missisippi” We normally think of the Mason-Dixon line as the division between the North and the South, but another division would be the Ohio River and the Missouri river.
Right now there is much hate in the world. Monuments that have been standing for thousands of years are being destroyed.
The Buddhas of Bamiyan (Persian: بت های باميان – bott-hâye Bāmiyān) were 4th- and 5th-century monumental statues of standing buddha carved into the side of a cliff in the Bamyan valley in the Hazarajat region of central Afghanistan
Not to be outdone the Islamic State blows up tomb of prophet Jonah in Iraq Nineveh,July-25-2014.jpg
The tomb was the Muslims tomb of Jonah, not the Jews tomb of Jonah.
Yes, Jonah is mentioned in the Quran, Sura 37: 139 – 148 And Jonah was one of the messengers. When he fled to the laden boat. He gambled and lost. Then the fish swallowed him, and he was to blame. Had he not been one of those who praised. He would have stayed in its belly until the Day they are raised.5. Then We threw him into the wilderness, and he was sick. And We made a gourd tree grow over him. Then We sent him to a hundred thousand, or more. And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment for a while.
ISIS wants to change history and have it begin with them.
When Israel ceded the West Bank to the Palestinian Authority one of the first things the Palestinians did was to destroy Joseph’s tomb.
Jihad: Joseph’s tomb was destroyed.
Old history now null and void.
In the p;ace where he laid
a new Mosque is displayed.
The fruits of Jihad: I’m annoyed.
This week confederate statues are being destroyed.
US is no longer conducting counter-terrorism operations against the Taliban in Afghanistan because it views the group as an important partner in its efforts for restoring peace in the war-ravaged country, US Department of Defence said.
“What we’re not doing (is) counter-terrorism operations against the Taliban,” Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told a Wednesday evening news briefing in Washington.
“We actually view the Taliban as being an important partner in a peaceful Afghan-led reconciliation process. We are not actively targeting the Taliban,” he added.
Meanwhile, six NATO service members were killed Monday in a motorcycle bomb attack in Bagram, Afghanistan, all American, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said.
A suicide bomber on a motorbike carried out the attack on a joint patrol of Afghan and coalition forces at about 1:30 p.m. in the Bajawri area of Bagram district, said Waheed Sediqi, a spokesman for the governor of Parwan province.
This brings us to verse 76 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by President Barack Hussein Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)
Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. That year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the Father of His Country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.
Bottom picture: NAACP proposes to sand blast the carvings of President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson from Stone Mountain.
What is the difference? The means and ideology are different,
** The charge of deserter is unproven. I chose to use it rather than the most probable term “defector”. I have to do it since Susan Rice prematurely declared he served with “honor and distinction” which is wrong to claim in the middle of an investigation.
Yes, Karzai gave thanks for “our taxpayers’ money”
to grease the corruption, it’s sweeter than honey.
The eleven year war
makes them ask for much more.
Surrender to Taliban? This is not funny.
Looking to a day when “the Afghan war as we understand it is over,” President Barack Obama met Sunday with President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan to discuss NATO’s withdrawal from that strife-torn country by the end of 2014.
“I’m bringing to you and to the people of the United States the gratitude of the Afghan people for the support that your taxpayers’ money has provided Afghanistan over the past decade and for the difference that it has made to the well-being of the Afghan people,” the Afghan President Karzai told Obama. He did not give thanks for the sacrifices the troops have made.
Obama looked ahead to a future “in which we have ended our combat role, the Afghan war as we understand it is over, but our commitment to friendship and partnership with Afghanistan continues” and evoked “a shared vision that we have in which Afghanistan is able to transition from decades of war to a transformational decade of peace and stability and development.”
Obama underlined “the enormous sacrifices that have been made by the American people, most profoundly by American troops, as well as the troops of our other coalition partners” and said Americans “recognize the hardship that the Afghan people have been through.”
“The loss of life continues in Afghanistan. There will be hard days ahead. But we’re confident that we’re on the right track,” he said.
