  1. My Country Feedback 🇺🇸♥
    Greetings!

    In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost

    O God come quickly to my assistance against the Beast.

    O Lord make haste to help me against Beastcraft.

    O Lord hear my prayer against Beastcraft.

    And let my cry against the Beast come unto Thee.

    The Beast is a personality-disordered schemers trying to rule the world, "by hook or by crook."

    The Beast has been around for a long, long, very long time. And The Beast knows every
    dark area of the human mind in every age. The Beast knows every human weakness and frailty, and faculty. The Beast is ever so subtle, and has had aeons of time to perfect the tradition of Beastcraft. Yes, Beastcraft is a tradition, Beastcraft is a heritage. Beastcraft is not just a fad, or a trend, or a lifestyle but rather, it is a deeply ingrained, imbeded, intrinsic and indelible sign of heritage, an intrinsically evil heritage and tradition.
    So, I'm asking myself, What's the attraction? I am the complete and total opposite of The Beast. I am by far the most incompatible with Beastly everything Beastly. I really don't understand. Yes, I curious.

    What's Beastcraft?
    How do you recognize Beastcraft?
    When is Beastcraft active?
    When is Beastcraft dormant?
    Who is the Beast?

    These inquiries are the focus of my detective work.
    When all of the churches, synagogues, temples, shrines, cathedrals, mosques, and missions were closed two years ago because of the COVID-19 Disease outbreak. I was without pastoral care. I am certain that many people recall the feelings of confusion, and abandonment that wreaked havoc on our peace of mind, and our sense of security, and our self-confidence that we are in control of our own lives.

    COVID-19 shook our sense of reality. It was a time when we most urgently, most deeply, and earnestly needed the solace and consolation of restoration, priests, bishops, preachers, rabbis, Imams, deacons, missionaries and evangelists to console our misery and our fears. But, the doors were locked against us, making it a criminal offense to congregate in order to hold worship services. Banished and banned, we were expelled abruptly, and with severe consequences imputed to those who disobeyed. Thus, adding to the pain inflicted on our already wounded hearts and dispirited spirits.

    This in my estimation is the quintessential design of Beastcraft. Unfair support followed by terror. Caught of guard, frolicking interrupted, suddenly everything becomes deadly serious without warning, and without preparation. This how I would describe Beastcraft.

    It was during this sad period of time that, without any conscious knowing on my part, I discovered that The Beast, in typical perverse Beast fashion, had left only one open door. The Los Angeles Men's Correctional Facility.
    Also known as the Los Angeles County Jail.

    I can't recall making a conscious choice to go there, except for the fact that I was taking a long walk, after having been couped up for several days. A sudden call of nature reminded me to seek out a women's restroom facility. But all public buildings were closed and abandoned. The fickle finger of fate pointed me to the jail inmate reception area, where I found the door open and a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy at his post, doing his duty during the crisis. I was never so glad to see another human being. I expressed to him what was going on and he understood immediately slipped the women's restroom key through the slot in the window.

    What am unlikely place for a person like me to be associated with. This, the LA County Men's Corrictional Facility, although is a, multi-million dollar, magnificent structure, is hardly a substitute for a religious environment. And definitely the opposite of an environment in which I would ordinarily seek help, outside of a emergency, such the crisis conditions which brought me there in the first place. Most people, particularly ethnic people who are stigmatized by law enforcement, and stigmatized by the Catholic Church, and stigmatized by society, people like me of the Negro race, stay as far away from the LA County Sheriff's hospitality facilities as possible because of the numerous public allegations and You Tube videos of torture and beatings, and people gunned down, some even shot in the back by the New World Order Millennium crop of Sheriff's Deputies now on the force working the streets and the jails.

    Every time I see one of those videos, or hear of this on the news. I know that it is The Beast and Beastcraft.

    This doesn't look like a normal ordinary arrest.
    This video looks like they are robbing the guy. Three or four of them best up one skinny but on the ground and kicking him, and banging their knee into his head.

    O videos from inside the jail with an inmate being walked down the hall and suddenly, the Deputy pulls the guy down. He is hand cuffed, and then three or four other Deputies, rush up and they all start crushing on top of him and punching him.

    I have a conflict with that. And although I can never know what it is like to be the Deputy, I see the behavior as inherently and intrinsically cowardly, evil, and something other than an arrest. It is more like the guy is being "impressed into their service, to serve them by force, such as a pimp forces a prostitute to serve him by the use or threat of force. This is Beastcraft. They are cresting a useful criminal by violating the captured person.

    Compare that with their schizophrenically different and opposite personalities when sitting at their front desk greeting and assisting in an administrative capacity, cheerfully fulfilling their Mental Health outreach role with me and other people. Providing solace and consolation all during the Covid-19 lock down, after all of my therapy groups were dissolved, and County Mental Health shut down and left its outpatients without any care at all? The LA County Sheriff's Mental Health team helped me.

    Compare and contrast the different in restraint.

    I am conflicted because. I own the LA County Sheriff's Mental Health team an unplayable debt of gratitude, for their immeasurable kindness, neighborliness, and mercy toward me.

    Compare that with the vicious brutality going on at the same time somewhere else. The Divine Animosity as opposed to Divine Mercy.

    It makes you wonder what must these Sheriff's Deputies be experiencing at home? What must these men and women of law enforcement have experienced growing up, or in life which causes them to believe that they are so elite, and that their eliteness gives them the unlimited privilege of sadism, and torture and brutalalizing gunning down, or killing other people.
    That's the Beast. That is Beastcraft.

    This is Beastcraft. This The Beast.

    This is perplexing because I am the absolute opposite of The Beast. I am nothing like them.

    Let us 🙏

    From Benjamin Jenks Prayer Book
    Edited by me.

    The Husband's Prayer

    ACCEPT my humble thanks , O Lord my God , who hast provided a help – meet for me , to be my partner in the nearest of all rela tions . O teach and enable me in all things to demean myself towards her as it becomes me in this station .

    May I be enabled to cherish her as my own flesh . Let me never on any account de spise her , or be bitter against her ; but may I bear with her infirmities , and forbear her in love and all gentleness . Nor let me insult over her as an inferior , but mildly use my authority in treating her as my dear yoke – fellow and com panion .

    Let me not be rigid in opposing her , but ready to comply with her in all her reasonable desires and expectations . O make me meek and patient , faithful and kind , respectful and tender in all my conduct towards her : and may I show myself on all occasions well – pleased and satisfied with her , that she may find comfort in fellowship with me , and never have reason to regret that she has forsaken all others for my sake .

    O blessed Lord , espouse my dear friend to thyself in loving kindness , and faithfulness , and tender mercies . Bless her and love her , and make her lovely in Thy sight and in the eyes of all .

    Especially make her like the king's daughter , all glorious within : that she may not only appear to advantage in this world , but be blessed for ever in the world to And grant , O Lord our God , that we may be lovers of one another's souls , and promoters of each other's salvation ; so that after a short sea son of fellowship here , we may meet again with rejoicing there , where we shall never part , even in that fulness of joy which is in Thy presence ; where , though there be no marrying nor giving in marriage , yet is there greater festivity and gladness than in any day of espousals , and where those who are united together in Thy fear and love shall be blessed together in everlasting fel lowship with thee , and with Thy dear Son Jesus Christ . Amen

  3. Some Scriptures about hell by Jesus himself and how not to go there:

    In Luke 16:19-31 Jesus describes a rich man that lived lavishly and a poor beggar man named Lazarus. It came to pass that Lazarus died and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom. The rich man died, was buried, then went to hell. 23 And in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in TORMENT, saw Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue, for I am tormented IN THIS FLAME. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that you in your lifetime received good things, and likewise Lazarus received evil things, but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that they which would pass from hence to you can not, neither can they pass to us, and would come from thence. 27 Then he said, I pray you therefore father, that you would send him to my father’s house. 28 For I have 5 brothers that he may testify unto them, lest also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham said unto him, They have Moses and the prophets, let them hear them. 30 And he said, Nay father Abraham, but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”

    LOCATION OF HELL: Jesus said in Matthew 12:40, ”For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly, so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the HEART OF THE EARTH.” Paul said in Ephesians 4:9, ”Now that he ascended, was it but that he also DESCENDED into the LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH.”

    HELL IS A PLACE OF FIRE: Jesus said in Luke 16:24,”….Father Abraham have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue for I am TORMENTED IN THIS FLAME.”

    Jesus said in Matthew 13:42,”And shall cast them into a FURNACE OF FIRE, there shall be WAILING AND GNASHING OF TEETH.” Jesus said in Matthew 25:41,”Then shall he also say to them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, INTO EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels.”

    Jesus said in Revelation 20:15,”And whosoever was not found written in the book of life, was CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.”

    HELL IS A PLACE OF TORMENT: Jesus said in Luke 16:23,”And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in TORMENT….” 24 …..for I am TORMENTED in this flame.” Jesus said in Revelation 14:11,”And the smoke of their TORMENT ascended up FOR EVER AND EVER, and they have no rest day or night….” Jesus said in Mark 9:45-46,”And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off, it is better for you to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the FIRE THAT NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED. 46 Where their WORM DIES NOT, and the fire is not quenched.” Note that it doesn’t say “THE Worm”, it says “THEIR WORM” dies not. Jesus said in Revelation 21:8,”But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whore mongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, which is the second death.” Note that Brimstone is Sulfur and burns with a very strong odor of rotten eggs.

    The scriptures above prove when a person goes to hell they will constantly see hell, constantly smell hell, constantly feel the heat of hell, will constantly breath hell, will constantly hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth of others in hell, will constantly be aware of their own worms, they will have no rest day or night, there is no way out and it will continue for ever and ever, they can’t die because they are already dead.

    The following is how to not go there and it is a SIMPLE AND EASY thing to do:

    All of the book of Acts is what Jesus disciples said what we must to be SAVED – meaning not go to hell, which is repentance, water baptism in Jesus NAME, (Not the titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost) and being baptized with the Holy Ghost. Jesus said in Mark 16:16,"He that believes and is BAPTIZED shall be SAVED, but he that believes not shall be damned."

    At about that same time He said in Matthew 28:19,"Go therefore and teach all nations BAPTIZING them in the name (SINGULAR name and not name's) OF the Father, and OF the Son, and OF the Holy Ghost." Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are titles and not names. Jesus disciples never used those words when they baptized anyone in water, nor did they use those words in one sentence regarding any other topic. Every time they said Jesus NAME at baptism which is Acts 2:38, Acts 8:14-18, Acts 8:38, Acts 9:18, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 16:15, Acts 16:33, Acts 18:7, Acts 18:8, Acts 19:3-5, and Acts 22:16.

    Jesus said in John 3:3-7,"Verily, verily I say unto you, Except a man BE BORN AGAIN, he can not see the kingdom of God. 5 Verily, verily I say unto, Except a man be born of water AND of the Spirit, he can not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 7 Marvel not that I say unto you, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN." Being born of water is being baptized in water which is for the REMISSION OF SINS – meaning the INITIAL remission of sins and not the confessing of sins later addressed in 1 John 1:9. Being born of the Spirit is being baptized with the Holy Ghost. What being baptized with the Holy Ghost means is addressed in Acts 2:3-4, (Pentecost), Acts 8:17, Acts 9:18, Acts 10:44-48, and Acts 19:3-5 – which is when the Spirit of Christ initially dwells in a person. Nowhere in Scripture does it say it happens any other way than that way. There is not one Scripture that says a person receives the Holy Ghost just because they are a believer.

    Paul said in Romans 8:9-11,”But you are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, HE IS NONE OF HIS."

    Numbers 23:19, ”God is not a man that he should lie, neither the son of man, that he should repent, has he said and shall he not do it? And shall he not make it good?”

    Malachi 3:6,”For I am the Lord, I change not…”

    Hebrews 13:8,”Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” That means there is no reason to think that Jesus will make an exception and save someone that has not been baptized in water in Jesus NAME, and has not been baptized with the Holy Ghost.

    If you are convinced you need to get baptized in water in Jesus Name do a search and type in "United Pentecostal Church International", scroll down to just below the red box, type in your zip code, a screen will show a Church near you that will do that.

    Jesus said John 10:27, ”My Sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

  4. Many people solely base their Salvation on what Jesus said in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life." But Jesus was not finished speaking yet. Later after He rose from the dead and just before He ascended into heaven He said in Mark 16:16,"He that believes and is BAPTIZED shall be Saved, but he that believes not shall be damned." At about that same time He said in Matthew 28:19,"Go therefore and teach all nations, BAPTIZING them in the name (SINGULAR name and not names) OF the Father, and OF the Son, and OF the Holy Ghost." Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are titles and not names. Jesus disciples never used those words when they baptized anyone in water, nor did they use those words in one sentence regarding any other topic. Every time Jesus disciples baptized anyone in water they invoked Jesus name at baptism which is Acts 2:38, Acts 8:14-18, Acts 8:38, Acts 9:18, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 16:15, Acts 16:33, Acts 18:7, Acts 18:8, Acts 19:3-5, and Acts 22:16 (Paul's baptism). Peter said in Acts 4:12,"Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be SAVED." Paul said in Colossians 3:17,"And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do ALL in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by HIM." Paul said in Colossians 2:8-10,"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwells ALL the fullness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And you are COMPLETE in him, which is the head of all principality and power." Also verse 12, "BURIED with him in BAPTISM, wherein also you are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who has raised him from the dead."
    The book of Acts is the most important book in the New Testament because all of it is what Jesus and his disciples said what we must do to be Saved, which is what Jesus meant in John 3:3-7, "Verily, verily I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he can not enter into the kingdom of God. 5 Verily, verily I say unto you, Except a man be born of water AND the of Spirit, he can not enter into the kingdom of God. 7 Marvel not that I say unto you, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN." Being born of water is being baptized in water in Jesus name – which is for the Remission of Sins (Acts 2:38). Being born of the Spirit is being baptized with the Holy Ghost – which is addressed in Acts 2:4 (Pentecost), Acts 8:17, Acts 9:18, Acts 10:44-48, and Acts 19:3-5. Nowhere in Scripture does it say it happens any other way than that way. There is not one Scripture that says a person receives the Holy Ghost just because they are a believer. Acts 19:2-5 is a good example.
    If you are convinced you need to get Baptized in water in Jesus Name, do a search, type in "United Pentecostal Church International", scroll down to just below the red box, type in your zip code, a screen will show a Church near you that will do that.

  5. What is on the horizon is going to prove and tell! What is on the horizon is going to prove, without a doubt who is sold out totally to GOD ALMIGHTY, and we do well! The scarce few will be revealed! GOD ALMIGHTY already knows, and seeing before creation, us HE sealed! Some will be made to weep, cry, even die! To live is Christ and to die is gain, immediately up and away, into yonder sky!

  6. 자신이 진정으로 죄인인 것을 알고 예수 그리스도께서 나의 죄를 제거하시기 위해서 십자가에서 피 흘려 죽으시고 묻히셨다가 삼 일만에 다시 일어나신 사실을 마음으로 믿고 주 예수 그리스도를 구주로 영접하면 지옥에 가지 않게 됩니다 이것은 하나님의 은혜입니다 이것이 예수 그리스도께서 이 땅에 오신 목적입니다 오늘 예수 그리스도께 나아오십시오 꼭 구원 받으십시오 하나님께서 여러분의 혼을 축복하시기를 기도합니다 또한 하나님께서 킹제임스 흠정역을 축복하시기를 기도합니다 아멘 감사드립니다

  7. What does one do when all that we have been praying for is no more?? My wife suffered serious stroke in 2011 and is bedridden to date. Our first born son passed away in 2017 after dropping out of university because of drugs. His younger brother and only sibling past on June 2022 aged 24 years after graduating with law degree three months ago. The father has never ceased praying. What should be the substance of my prayer from now on?

  8. If anyone hasn’t seen it….check out the biography movie of “Joni”. It was put out by Billy Graham evangelistic organization. Great movie!

  9. The only two of God's commandments that have any significance are "Thou shalt not kill" and "Thou shalt not steal", all the rest are no account notions of how people should generally act but they don't have to be observed unless you are a foaming at the mouth God freak.
    Those two rules are usually part of every cultures laws, religious or not, but they really mean "Thou shalt not kill anybody within our tribal group" and "Thou shalt not steal from anybody within our tribal group", there is no sin attached to killing people of other tribes, in fact God encourages it, the bible is full of instances where God instigated wars and goaded people to kill others he didn't like.
    God even became involved and personally performed the murders, burning two thriving Cities, Sodom and Gomorrah and burning the inhabitants alive, and who can forget Noah’s flood where millions of innocent people were drowned because your so called God decided some of them weren't doing what he wanted.
    What he wanted was for all of them to spend their lives down on their knees telling him how good he is, apparently from what I've been told this is the criteria God uses to define good from evil, Getting your foot inside the pearly gates is going to be an ordeal if people are expected to obey all the commandments for their whole lives, Heaven will be a very lonely place.
