The BlackBerry Journals - 9.30.08

Beloved, you have lost something, but this will actually help you to get what you really want and need. It is deceiving, but since you are trusting Me, what is hidden will be your reward. A great reward awaits you, but it is not right there on the surface. It is in the depths below and you must go down to get it. Have no fear and do not worry at all, for it shall be easier to find then you think.

I just feel funny right now. I was able to get a little nap earlier. It is one of those funny feelings that you can't really quite pin point what is wrong. I am still full from Popeyes, maybe that was it... What is it Lord?

Beloved, the whole world can see a change that is taking place through out all the the earth, and you think it has something to do with the Popeyes you ate? Trust me beloved, it has nothing to do with the food you ate.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.30.08

Beloved, something is growing inside of you and very soon you will know what it is. It is alive beloved and it keeps calling your name. You are afraid it is to good to be true, but it is not. This thing that is growing inside of you beloved, is not to good to be true.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.30.08

Beloved, it is a cry of yours that WILL be heard. It will be heard beloved, you can "bank" on it.

It is 10 minutes later and I am at Popeyes' waiting in line. It is a very long line too and so I have nothing better to do then write. I just want to get my food and get back to the mission as soon as possible. Now I am about to order.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.30.08

Right now, the Dow is up 372.19 from yesterdays' close.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.30.08

This phone (BlackBerry 8820) is starting to bug me, acting like I am pushing the trackball when the trackball will not even work when I push it. What I really wanted to say is that I am going to be going into "survival mode" pretty soon. I have been pushing myself and saying, "I don't know how I will do it, but I don't care." So now comes that moment when I am going to have to act... I just feel like asking the Lord to speak to me about a couple things that are on my heart.

Beloved, a gift presents itself and you say, "Could it be true?" But I just want you to keep waiting beloved. You will not be disappointed if you wait just a little bit longer. What you ask for is a good thing, but the timing is what throws you off. However, your prayers have been heard and what you hope for is looking at you.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.30.08

Okay, so I think I am wired! I am on my second cup of coffee. So, we started "Hosting His Presence" at 6PM yesterday. I have not got much sleep lately, as I slept from about 8AM to noon yesterday. I suppose four hours is not to bad...

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.30.08

Beloved, the stock market plummets, but you need to know that you are in My shadow and no harm will come to you. Beloved, all is well within your soul. You are at peace for the moment, while the world rages in economic turmoil, you are at peace beloved and it is good thing. In a day, in two days, in three, gates will open up before you. Don't look at what you can see, but look at what is not there. A good thing is before you, but something better is on the horizon.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.29.08

I am relieved, as I was able to finially get to the laudry mat (EZ Wash off of S. 10th st.) this afternoon. Lately I have been going up to Launderama off of Mill Rd. and 40th St. in Maplewood, but the Lord specifically instructed me to go to EZ Wash this time, which actually turned out to be great. I got everything done that I needed to do. Shortly we will be starting "Hosting His Presence", downstairs, at 6PM.

I think one of the major reasons I wanted to write was because of the news of the failed government bailout. Upon absorbing this news, the Dow fell 777.68 points, its largest fall ever. Another thing I noticed was my second bank (Wachovia) was taken over by the government and then purchased by Citibank. I guess it did not necessary "fail", but it reminds me of what just happened to my first bank (the one I mostly use) Washington Mutual. That just surprises me again, both my banks where in trouble and I did not even know it. All I do know is that, like money, in the modern society that we live, we can not function properly without a bank account. A funny thought actually came to me earlier, something along the lines of justice. Now I know that it is ones responsibility to keep a balance in their bank account, but we all make mistakes, don't we? Anyway, recently Washington Mutual slapped me with $68 for "insufficient funds". One was a bounced check too and they did not cover it. It was my $150 rent check to my pastor and to make matters worse, his bank slapped him with a $15 bounced check fee. Yikes! Everything got taken care of (basically at my expense), but you know I never want that to happen again. Talk about embarrassing and an expensive waste of money! Anyway, it is common knowledge that we need these banks, but when you make a few mistakes, they nearly strangle you with these insufficient fund fees. It is insane, and then Washington Mutual goes out of business and the CEO for a few weeks, Alan Fishman, gets a $19.1 million dollar severance and bonus pay. What!? $19.1 million dollars for being at the head of a company when it goes out of business and all the while I go broke paying insufficient fund fees. So I guess that is why I kind of had the funny thought of justice being served. It all has to do with the government bailout failing and the banks—that I need and who have both charged me outrageous insufficient fund fees—struggling or going out of business. These once mighty banks are the ones begging for mercy now. Ha ha! In away it kind of pleases me, even if it is just for a moment.

How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished! 2 Samuel 1:27

Another thing that I thought was interesting was that I saw there was a 7.3 magnitude earthquake out in the South Pacific. I know that recently I published "The BlackBerry Journals" that spoke about an earthquake, so when I read about this one in the South Pacific, I took note.

And it shall come to pass, [that] he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. Isaiah 24:18

The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. Isaiah 24:19

The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. Isaiah 24:20

And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones [that are] on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. Isaiah 24:21

And they shall be gathered together, [as] prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Isaiah 24:22

Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously. Isaiah 24:23

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.29.08

I am kind of just chilling here in the soundroom (at the House of Mercy Mission). I am increasing the volume of Orlando's Spanish message—Equipando a la Iglesia Para el Ministerio—from yesterday. Don't ask me what that means, as I just told him to write down the title and I would do the rest. Spanish is not one of my strong points, but it sure has interested me from time to time. Now I am uploading to the Internet again (I had to reupload Orlando's message, as I forgot to increase the volume before uploading it to the Internet the first time). I also want to upload Pastor Tilly's message (Tet and Samekh) from yesterday, too. I was getting antsy sitting and waiting for Orlando's message to be finished saving and thought I would write a little while it saves. Now that it is done saving, since uploading takes a minute too, I thought I would continue writing.

I don't know why, but one thing I really wanted to write is that I need to go to the laundry mat. I usually don't go in the morning, as I am not usually up at this time, but since I am on a strange schedule, it really should not be hard for me to go at this hour.

What Inspires You?

I was just thinking about how important it is to be inspired. Yesterday, I put out my third podcast and gave it the title "Inspired and Obedient". (I also published the podcast and same message on this blog. Currently it is just below this post, but in case that changes, you can find it on my blog here: Inspired and Obedient.) Earlier this morning, I listened to it fully for the first time and I was like, "Ya, I was definitely inspired to do that message." That almost sounds like I am puffing up or promoting myself, but I do think I have a good reason for saying and publishing these words. I was just thinking about how important it is to be inspired when you go about to do anything in this life. Now of course I need to emphasize being willing and obedient too. These are the three words that are coming to me at this moment, that I just feel I NEED to publish: Inspired, willing and obedient. Being willing and obedient is more important than being inspired, I can not deny that; however, when you try to do something and you are not inspired, it is difficult. So the key is to be inspired about what God wants you to be willing and obedient towards. Being inspired will just make you enjoy the process of being willing and obedient. Perhaps that is what I am trying to say. Whatever makes you want to be willing and obedient is your best friend, fully embrace it! It truly is a gift and blessing from the Lord.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: Isaiah 1:19

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.29.08

Okay, so I am making a pot of coffee. Today should prove to be very interesting, same with tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday. Why am I making a pot of coffee right now? It is because I can't sleep, there is no way I can. I slept after church from 3PM to about 11PM when I got the call to pray for Pastor Sam. That is eight hours of sleep, and frankly, I just don't need to go to bed, do I? I just can't understand why I feel sleepy though. I just tried going to bed and I was wide awake. It is definitely a strange feeling, but I am not new to the experience. I need to do laundry tomorrow, that is all I know. Then perhaps I need to be here around 5PM to kick off "Hosting His Presence."

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.29.08

I am feeling a little sleepy and I am wondering if I should make a pot of coffee or try to take advantage of this sleepiness... Both seem to offer their advantages with equal appeal. Lord, what do you say?

Beloved, you are a bit sleepy now, that is clear, but you can't go to bed just quite yet. You may rest for a minute, but then the cloud will pass that has been raining above you. When the cloud passes, don't wonder what made it go, just enjoy the time that you have the sun shinning.

Ha ha! I am so like not feeling like I needed to go into depth about anything, but that is just the way it went. I am feeling sleepy, but I don't really want to go to bed. I received a prayer request earlier tonight, around 11PM, to pray for Pastor Sam. I was told he was having shortness of breath and a bad cough. This of course supersedes anything. We have been planning for a couple weeks to be "Hosting His Presence" at our church, starting tomorrow night. The plan is to play worship music straight for three days starting tomorrow night and ending Thursday at 6PM. This is supposed to be a very "serious" (Pastor Tilly's word) matter/time, so I don't want to get to into depth about it all. I almost get the feeling like lightening will strike you if you make the wrong move or say the wrong thing, kind of a thing.

Kind of like in the Old Testament when Uzzah touched the Ark and the Lord stuck him dead:

And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth [his hand] to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook [it]. 2 Samuel 6:6

And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for [his] error; and there he died by the ark of God. 2 Samuel 6:7

Or when the priests used to go into the Holy of Holies, kind of a thing; just kind of like an obligated deep reverence due unto the Lord. I am perceiving the feeling like the "fear of the Lord"; a healthy fear this is.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.28.08

Okay, so I suppose I will take a nap for an hour or so. I have been up all night, but it is cool. I was able to get my third real podcast out, entitled "Inspired and Obedient". I did a couple other things, such as upload Matt Bell's message from yesterday (Spiritual Warfare and Obedience ) and update "The BlackBerry Journals". I think the biggest thing was probably "Inspired and Obedient" as the message itself is around fifty minutes. fifty minutes of me, wow! Well, hopefully some of God's anointing got on there too, as I think that is really what will bless the people. I did feel the anointing a bit, that is for sure. Okay, this is cutting into my nap time.

Inspired and Obedient

Hello from Newark, NJ, USA! I was inspired to do this message and so that explains the the first word in the title. For the second word (obedient), in the podcast (near the end) I explain a little bit of how important it is (for Christians) to be obedient to God. The blessings that we receive for being obedient to God are greater then anything we could gain trying to do things our own way.

Be blessed and encouraged by this message, for the Lord said He would never leave us, nor forsake us. He is always with us, even until the end of the world!

[Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:20

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.27.08

I am at Burger King here in Maplewood off of Springfield Ave. I had a craving for a BK chicken meal. I am still trying to get over something from earlier today. It is something that I need to just give to the Lord, but perhaps it will not be to much longer before I am able to.

After work (4pm), I just went straight to bed and just woke up around 9pm, so I am all ready to go. Along with taking a 5 hour nap, I have had/am having a massive amount of Dr. Pepper; I don't think will be going to bed very soon.

I still did not get any coffee, but how do I get a can/bag easily, and at a price I can afford, at this time of night?

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.27.08

Beloved, a storm blows, it rages, it screams, it says there is no hope, but it is a trick beloved. It sweeps away those who are not grounded in Me. Beloved, you are angry, but you shall be appeased soon enough. Soon the cloud shall pass and all will be well.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.27.08

When will it all make sense? When will the madness end? It is like a dark cloud, but I know the sun is shining above this cloud. I am waiting for the winds to blow this storm cloud away. The winds will come, they always do. I need to just ask the Lord to speak to me now, because this is a moment I don't understand, nor do I know which way to go.

Beloved, again darkness falls, but yet there is light. There is hope because I am in charge. You do not need to understand what I am doing at the moment. It is not important to you. All you need to know is that I am going to bless you and prosper you. Though a cloud of economic pressure has covered this nation, all those who truly belong to me should have no fear. When the time comes, I will establish a standard that shall not be broken in this nation, but for the moment, the rain pours and the lightening strikes. Beloved, though ye are troubled in your soul, you must believe that a new day is coming. A brighter day is coming. For it shines like heaven itself is open before it and above it. Heaven itself awaits that day, for it shall be a glorious day. A glorious day is coming, a day that will make moments like these just a vague memory. They shall all be just a vague memory and some you will even forget about all together.

Tough Times?

I found out today that one of my banks failed, Washington Mutual. I could not believe this, I really could not. The good thing is that it was quickly acquired by another bigger bank, JP Mortgage Chase. As I was looking into it, I ran across this video:

Jack Burkman says in the video something like, "People forget...why recessions are so important. You need it to sweep away the crooks, the bums, the inefficient." I just thought that statement was so interesting.

And above is a video about the news of WaMu going out of business. I am just shocked because I thought that this bank was such a great bank. Sure glad I did not have stock in it or anything. I am sure if I did, I would not have been complaining earlier about a $90 car insurance payment that is due at the end of the month. I think I hate money at the moment... lol! Ya! Like anyone can survive in a modern world without it, right? Not of this world, not of this world, not of this world... Maybe if I just keep repeating it, I might just be able to act accordingly. I am just playing, but you know how frustrating money can be sometimes, right? Everyone must. Oh well, life goes on and time stops for no one... until of course the world ends... But who knows when that will be, right? Only the Father knows.

The night has begun! I am at Dunkin Donuts and I am about to get a large coffee with 3 sugars and a little bit of cream. After this, I suppose I will go to Pathmark (off of Bergan St.) and buy some cheap coffee. I'll see if I can find a link to show you the kind I have been buying. After Pathmark, I suppose I will update the "BlackBerry Journals"; we'll see.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.26.08

I have a bad feeling that I can't seem to shake. SHAKE! SHAKE! SHAKE!

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.26.08

It is Friday night and I am board out of my mind. I almost feel like going to get coffee at Dunkin Donuts... However, that would mean I would have to figure out away to pay all of my bills. I am so bugged right now! I have a car insurance bill of $90 due at the end of the month and I can't even drive my car. I need to buy and replace the alternator (1988 Ford Escort), but an exchange is like $80 at Auto Zone (on Springfield Ave.) if I trade in the old one. I am sure I can do the work myself, but... It is just frustrating... I can either afford to pay my car insurance (NJ-ReInsurance) and have a car that will not run or I can have a car that runs but not have car insurance (NJ-ReInsurance)... It just does not make sense to me. My hope is in the Lord though (Jeremiah 17:7). Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all (Psalm 34:19). I have been young and I have been old, but I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their seed begging for bread (Psalm 37:25). Delight thyself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart (Psalm 37:4)and lean not own understanding (Proverbs 3:5), in all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your path (Proverbs 3:6).

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.26.08

Beloved, it is not a big deal. It is not a big deal, for I will make the earth quake and tremble and it will bring you peace. You will have peace when the earth trembles beloved, and it will not be long.

Beloved, when you least expect it, a door will open up and change the future in away you had never dreamed of. When this happens, your heart will become soft and tender and you will be able to see and know the future that I desire to bring to pass in your life. To the left the sound of beauty presents itself, to the right lies a door that will open for you to walk through. This door is open now beloved, but it is not time yet to walk through it. You will know when the right time to walk through it will be, for everything inside of you will say, "Now! Walk through the door now!" And you will walk through the door. Beauty awaits you beloved, it calls your name and in your darkest hour it whispers the sounds of beauty. It is a beautiful sound that you hear beloved and it enters and dances with grace as the wind dances in the prairie. Your hope is not cut off beloved, for what you have hoped for, shall be presented to you when you least expect it. When you least expect it, you will find what you are looking for. You will find the gift that you lost. In your darkest hour, the beauty will find you... Don't try to understand this word now, beloved, for it is for a future date. It is for a future moment in time and then you will remember these words and it will all make sense.

It appears that this Muslim from Turkey has tried to contact me (via email) again. I have so many questions. How old is he? Is he really near Turkey? Where exactly on the Internet did he get my email address? The answers to these questions could really help me to understand how to respond to him. Perhaps what he does for a living too, would be helpful. He seemed reluctant to answer my last few questions and more (unsurprising) interested in "informing" me. What he does not realize yet, is that I am free because I already KNOW the truth (John 8:32). Another thing is that he seems to have written to me from two email addresses; one gmail and the other hotmail. I just need to make sure it is the same person... The last thing I need is a whole bunch of Muslims emailing me. Of course this would not intimidate me or anything, but one only has so many hours in the day to live... I actually think it is kind of fun. What I saw in the spiritual world regarding it, was like a spiritual portal opened up through the Internet somewhere. That somewhere is how he found my email address. That is perhaps the main reason why I want to know where he found it. Was it Facebook?

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.25.08

It is getting late, but I actually feel like something writing original and genuine right now. I just finished doing the Bakken Oil Formation Forward "Snopesed" and Dissected post and now I am working on posting Tuesday's bible study Proverbs 15:1-7 (Proverbs - Pt. 44) online. I am starting to feel a little tired, but I am doing okay.

I was finally able to drop a letter off at the Dunkin Donuts... I think I am going to cut this short because I just had to start a new notepad and that kind made me not want to write more at the moment.

Bakken Oil Formation Forward "Snopesed" and Dissected

It got this forward the other day and it looked to good to be true, but I could not resist it, nor could I just ignore it. Here is the forward—I did correct a few spelling/grammar errors, add in "(here is Snopes on Bakken Oil Formation)" just below and saturate it with links:


Ever heard of the Bakken Oil Formation?

You don't even have to check with Snopes (here is Snopes on Bakken Oil Formation) to see if this is true... Just put in 'bakken Formation' on GOOGLE and stand by for the load of info that will descend on you!

1. Ever heard of the Bakken Formation?

GOOGLE it. It will blow your mind. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakken_Formation

The U.S. Geological Survey issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oilmen/women knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota; western South Dakota; and extreme eastern Montana... check THIS out:

The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

'When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.' says Terry Johnson,the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.

'This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years,' reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada. For years, U.S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 41 years straight.

2. [And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO, people!]

U.S. Oil Discovery - Largest Reserve in the World! Stansberry Report Online - 4 /20/2006 Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lyes the largest untapped oil reserve in the world is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction.

They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:

-8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

-18-times as much oil as Iraq

-21-times as much oil as Kuwait

-22-times as much oil as Iran

-500-times as much oil as Yemen - and it's all right here in the Western United States .

HOW can this BE!? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this!? Because the democrats and left-wing republicans have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil.

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East—more than 2 TRILLION barrels. Untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to.


Got your attention fired up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about it ... and hopefully upset, do this:

3. Take 10 minutes and compose an e-mail; fax or good old-fashioned letter to all your friends and associates. Alert them to the fact that democrats and 'liberal' republicans have been and will continue to obstruct all plans to make America independent of foreign oil. The only solution is to vote all democrats and Marxist oriented republicans out of office.

If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you want to complain about gas prices .. because by doing NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.


Okay, well I am doing something about it, right? Here is what Snopes had to say about the above email:


Basically, Snopes suggests that the estimates of what are in the Bakken Oil Formation are far less then 500 billion barrels; more like 4 billion barrels. That is about a years worth of being able to support our economy, compared with 40 years as the above forward states.

Snopes analysis of the "Stansberry Report Online" seems to suggest there is a possibility to the validity of this part of the forward:

U.S. Oil Discovery - Largest Reserve in the World! Stansberry Report Online - 4 /20/2006 Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lyes the largest untapped oil reserve in the world is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction.

-22-times as much oil as Iran

-500-times as much oil as Yemen - and it's all right here in the Western United States .

HOW can this BE!? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this!? Because the democrats and left-wing republicans have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to.


That part appears to be taken from: http://www.stansberryonline.com/OIL/20060405-OIL-COL.asp

The above link appears to go to one of those "penny stock" spam emails that gets sent out or faxed.

I think Snopes more accurately calls it a "tout sheet intended to sell subscriptions to a newsletter".

I was searching for a certain MSNBC video that I watched fairly recently about an oil boom somewhere around North Dakota. Trying to find that particular video is seeming to take more time then I want to spend. For the time being, I will post some news article links and a video that are relevant/slightly relevant to this post:

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.23.08

Things are different now. I know that from now on whatever I write here (in the BlackBerry Journals) I want to post online, so now I have to screen everything to make sure it is appropriate. I guess that is cool.

Anyway, today has been a really strange and interesting day. I am not sure if you can tell by all my "beloved" entries. Whenever you see "beloved", it usually means that I am writing what I feel the Lord is saying to me. This is something that I have been enjoying doing for almost two years now. Sometimes I think it is way off, but other times, dead on. However, knowing that I want to post everything online will make me really ask if I really believe the Lord is saying what I think He is saying to me. It could almost be a sort of "accountability" thing, as the Lord knows I don't want to post anything that I don't think He is saying.

Anyway, ya, I am kind of tired right now. Bible study went well and I even have a new PC I am looking at to see if I can fix it. This one looks a little bit tougher then I think I can handle. However, the Lord and I make a majority, right (2 Kings 6:16)?

I am really tired and just want to go to bed. Bed, bed, bed!

I wonder what challenges await me tomorrow.

What challenges await me tomorrow Lord?

Beloved, tomorrow promises to open up before you as a brand new beginning. A brand new beginning awaits you tomorrow. Sleep well now, my child. Sleep well and dream dreams of happiness beloved, for tomorrow the day will ask of you a mighty grand, brand new undertaking.

I am resting, bible study is about to start. I was looking for something to eat, but it was an unsuccessful savaging attempt. I almost feel like eating chicken, but I can't afford to continue to eat out at these fast food places. I almost feel addicted though.

Earlier was rough. I don't want to go into why, but the Lord knows and I'm just trusting Him. It is like I can't look to the left, I can't look to the right, but I need to keep my eyes focused straight ahead to my destination. Especially at moments like those. God is good though and I feel fine. I feel like my world is still in one piece. I am a little psyched about a couple of positive responses to things I posted online. Real quick, because I have to go into bible study, are the "grammar tips game", the WavePad mp3 saving format problem for macs" and a couple of responses on my blackberry posting which I posted my trackball problem.

I am so tired!

Beloved, in a moment, in a split second, a change has come, but it is not permanent. You can not trust it to support your weight beloved, for it will crush beneath you and hurt you. However, the good news is that it is only temporary beloved. This moment is just the moment before the dawn. It is true beloved, the night is always the darkest before the dawn and... It is dark outside. Just wait a little bit longer and you will understand the reasoning behind the madness. Today has been a good day beloved, but I have something greater in store for you tonight. Something that will help you in the days ahead. It is a good thing that awaits you tonight beloved, a good thing.

It is just a fleeting moment beloved, just a fleeting moment. In time you will be able to look back and say, "It was just a moment, just a moment I did not understand." However, beloved, times stops for no one, it keeps ticking, on and on and on. Look to the future for your hope. It is in your future that the puzzle will melt together. At the moment, the pieces are scattered, but soon, they shall melt together. They shall melt together and you will say, "ah yes, now I understand why that moment did not make sense."

I am intrigued. I have attracted the attention of a Muslim all they way in Turkey, somehow through the Internet. What intrigues me most is that he feels it is his duty to inform me of information in an email that he sent me, regarding Jesus and Islam. I took a brief look at it to see what it was, but I could not review it once I saw that it appeared to be biased and in favor of Islam. What intrigues me the most is that this fellow was writing me all the way from near Turkey. It must have been something I put on the Internet that caught his attention. That idea delights me, as I have always felt that when God's word goes forth, it accomplishes what He desires for it to accomplish (Isaiah 55:11). I have always had a vision of a "global" ministry through the Internet, and this email from him appears to be a manifestation of this vision...

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.23.08

So I suppose now that I am posting these journals online, I need to be a little bit more careful what I write... Not like I am not already or something, but when you actually know that what you are writing will be published online, it makes you think just a second longer about what you are writing. I am sure everyone knows what I am talking about. There are just some things that should not be, nor are they appropriate to be published online. It is just common sense.

Ya, so it is going on 7:30 AM here in the city of Newark, and I am at the post office waiting for them to open the doors. Over the course of the night I worked on the church's "CD mailers" (Critical Mass - Pt. 2) and I want them to get out as soon as possible.

I am starting to feel a little tired, but I am sure that today will be a great day. I just know it.

I am still thinking about that "oil in America" email that I received Sunday. It stated that America has about 2 trillion gallons of oil under its ground, but is yet to be tapped for some mysterious reason. Perhaps it shall be soon, perhaps this is the great "E" or something that will pull America out of its deficit and make us independent of foreign oil... If you ask me, it sounds to good to be true, but it is definitely something that is not to be turned a deaf ear to... You know the old, "what if"...

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.23.08

I was just thinking about an old friend... She is perhaps married by now. I think that it is good that we where able to briefly communicate, but a part of me wonders if that was the last time. A part of me thinks it is for the best... I don't know, I just don't know. Yes, I just want to be that "glorious beacon of light". Not to take anything away from the Lord... Perhaps just be like the moon and just reflect THE Light (Jesus). I just keep getting glimpses of people's lives. Time keeps ticking and so does life and the lives' of people. What is a man's life, but dust? Here today and gone tomorrow. I am nearly 30 years old, and that is what scares me. I have watched people's lives change and develop through the good and the bad. It is so weird. There is no escape from this... "watch".

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.22.08

My question is, what is the Lord doing?

Beloved, you are going to have to trust Me. Do you? If you trust Me, I will help you to see exactly what I am doing. However, for the time being just enjoy your coffee.

The BlackBerry Journals - 9.22.08

At the moment, I am very happy. Why? Well, I really am just free, free until 9am tomorrow morning.

I am chuckling a little bit about a few conversations on Newark Forums. Tellusall kind of cracks me up a bit. It is quite funny.

Anyway, I did a couple things online tonight, such as post a friend's dilemma on a NCH Forum board. I also posted this trackball problem on a board on BlackBerry Forums. I updated my Christian Forums profile, and started a small thread entitled "Professional Bloggers". I browsed messages on Wikipedia, which is turning out to be more fun then I thought. For some reason, I keep getting this "the honorable Timothy Shields". Now I know the mayor of Newark carries that title and perhaps judges, but why me? Why? Because of I am using my "real" name online and in order for people to know that I am trustworthy, the title is appropriate. The honorable Timothy P. Shields. I think that sounds funny but quite catchy...

Contemplating U.S. Government Bailout

The video below is entitled: What brought the U.S. economy to the brink?

This topic seems to be to the main subject of the week. What does this mean? I was just reading an interesting article about George Bush's "shifting' in policy. The word "shifting" is really what caught my attention in this article: Interventions highlight Bush's shifting ideology.

It seems to be words in the subject lines of this article and video. "U.S. economy to the brink" and "Bush's shifting ideology"...

"Brink" and "shift" where both words that Steve Kasyanenko used in his unforgettable prophetic prophecy spoken here at the House of Mercy Mission in Newark, NJ.

My question is this, what does this mean that our government has "intervened" in our "free markets" here in America? Disaster has been narrowly avoided?

I keep looking, I keep looking, I keep hoping, I keep hoping. My eyes are steadfast upon the prize of the high calling in Christ (Philippians 3:14). Nothing waivers me, nothing deters me, nothing discourages me, because Christ is my hope and heaven is my eternal destination. Yes, it is heaven itself that inspires me, that drives me, that moves me, that heals me. Heaven, my finial destination (Hebrews 11:13 and 13:14).

I am tired again. Very sleepy! I am working on a computer for someone. I was doing a lot of other things, but figured I could do this while I have the time. It seems mostly I am updating software programs, mostly security programs.

Jerusalem, the Garden of Eden?

Here are three videos of Perry Stone speaking about Jerusalem being the location of the Garden of Eden. In the three videos (which was really one 30 minute show) he gives a great run for your money. There are definitely points that are worth pondering and investigating more in these videos. Loved it!

Newark receives Cash to Save Newark Sceens

Email from: City of Newark, New Jersey - (newsletter@ci.newark.nj.us)

The city of Newark has received an influx of cash to save a movie complex that has been struggling financially. NEDC Riverfront Corporation has pledged $650,000 to help Newark Screens. Newark Screens which sits on Newark ownded property. Newark Screens, a six-screen movie complex, is the city's only major movie theater and is considered an important part of the Central Ward. Earlier this month, the theater failed to pay 30 of its employees. Deputy Mayor Stefan Pryor said that the money will enable the theater to cover potential operating losses and to remain open until a new use is selected for the venue. Previous Star-Ledger coverage: Newark Screens runs out of money...

Join Sarah Palin and Eagles' Wings at NYC Protest

(This email just in.)

Dear Timothy,

Please take a moment and read this urgent call to action!!!

We are living in an hour when terrorists who become presidents of rogue states are welcomed at the UN, even as their anti-Semitic vitriol is broadcast around the world on the evening news. Christian support for Israel is not to be taken for granted, nor is it an absolute. The dividing line over Israel is being drawn today in the nations, and yes, even in the Bible-believing Church. Now is the time to stand up and be counted on the side of God’s eternal covenant promises!

I am asking you to adjust your schedule and make whatever sacrifice that you can to be a voice for Israel at this critical hour.

We are calling on you to make your way to New York City this Monday morning, September 22, to join together with Jews and Christians from the tri-state region to declare support for Israel, and to protest the visit of Iran’s president to the United Nations General Assembly. Due to Iran’s nuclear ambitions and the threat to Israel, our friends in the Jewish community have planned this protest and they have reached out to us as Christians to add our voice to theirs.

I have just received information that Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, a believer and advocate of Israel, will speak at the rally. We will have signs for you to pick up on-site as a demonstration of support that will be seen by the leaders of the nations coming to the UN, and by the world as they watch on the news. Rarely do we have such a strategic opportunity to show the world that we believe in God’s word, and are willing to place our time and our money on the line to be present and counted on the side of Israel!

Come pick up your signs at the corner of 2nd Avenue and 45th Street at 10:45 AM, and then head over to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (2nd Avenue and 47th Street) across from the United Nations, for the rally which will begin at 11:45 AM, rain or shine. We will see you soon!

It appears that Sarah Palin has been disinvited:

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: They shall Prosper that Love Thee.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Psalms 122:6

It has been over a week since I posted that YouTube video (Visit Jerusalem) for a fellow in online marketing who was promoting the video. I posted my original thoughts, along with the video, here: Creative and Humorous Jerusalem Tourism YouTube Video... and some Thoughts

The first major scripture that shot out at me was Matthew 23:37, which reads: O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not!

And to be honest that scripture really kind of scared me. Kind of like, why would anyone want to visit Jerusalem when that scripture says "Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee"?

After all, a true prophet sent from God is a good man and should be honored, not stoned to death... If you know what I mean. Quite scary if you ask me... So I was like "Lord, why would you put it on this Jewish man's heart to ask me to post this video on my blog, and then give me that scripture (Matthew 23:37)? You know I love you Lord, but being stoned to death is quite frightening... And to top it all off, it is a tourism video too."

I kind of got the feeling like, "Ya, come to Jerusalem, have fun visiting and then get stoned to death..." That kind of a feeling. It was a little quite unnerving/confusing to me.

Anyway, my original reason for posting the video was Genesis 12:3 (which is the same reason why I post the Israeli flag on the top of this blog and other places), which reads: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

So despite my unanswered questions, I decided to still post the video for the sake of Genesis 12:3.

It was only till a couple days ago that I was reminded of Psalms 122:6. When I remembered that verse, I began to think that I should post it on my "Creative and Humorous Jerusalem Tourism YouTube Video... and some Thoughts" post, so that I don't miss out on that "prosperity" blessing that Psalms 122:6 speaks about.

However, the problem was that I just was not motivated enough, but just earlier this afternoon, I got the "Join Sarah Palin and Eagles' Wings at NYC Protest" email and that was all she wrote and the lead broke! (...Or more like, "that was all I needed!")

Wow! This is starting to get to be a long post! However, I want to say that I have really been blessed by God to have posted that video AND to be standing with Israel, if just in general.

What has really blessed me the most though, was understanding what "prosperity" means in Psalm 122:6.

1) to be at rest, prosper, be quiet, be at ease
a) (Qal)
1) to be or have quiet
2) to be at ease, prosper

How delightful? How simply delightful be in this state? It truly is a blessing from God. This is what the world unsuccessfully seeks, but I (a Christian who supports Israel and loves Jerusalem) am the one who possesses it.
To God be the glory!

He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:39

On top of all this (seems more like the bottom), I did find out who I heard say that Jerusalem could be the very location where the Garden of Eden was. Are you ready? Perry Stone...

When I Googled to find his Internet site bio., this YouTube video came up third in the search:

It is entitled "Perry Stone: Prophecy in Israel (part 1)", and it does look interesting. Perhaps when I get a better chance, I will watch the whole thing. For the time being though, God bless!


Update (9.20.08)

Here is a new post of Perry Stone speaking about Jerusalem being where the Garden of Eden could have been (it sounds and looks real convincing): Jerusalem, the Garden of Eden?

Eight Pieces of Proof Governor Sarah Palin will be America's next Vice President

Here are my eight pieces of proof:

NUMBER 1 (An email WITH errors.)

Wednesday, September 3, 2008, 11:42 AM

I have been waiting for a prophetic word re the current status of the election. This morning I received this word from Chuck Pierce (whom I have learned to trust and believe he truly hears the voice of the Lord in a prophetic way!) This will encourage your heart! I received this after sending the prayer earlier.

I believe you are aware that Dutch (Sheets) was used by the Lord to call prayer before the 2000 Bush election that was so close. He said this morning that this election is perhaps even more critical than 2000 because of the Supreme Court. If the right political posture is not elected, we stand to lose decades of progress and the repercussions are enormous. Last year Chuck Pierce and Greg Hood (both prophets) prophesied that in 2008 we are not electing a president but the vice president. Dutch said he could get no release in his heart to back Huckabee even though pressured by many in the body of Christ. Huckabee is a good man and a strong believer, but he was not God's choice. Dutch also told us that he knows a man who gave McCain a prophetic word that McCain had made a vow to God when he was at the bottom during his POW days and now God was calling in that vow. McCain was visibly moved by this word.

Dutch was traveling to Texas on Friday and when he landed in the airport,his wife called and told him to get to the TV asap. He watched McCain introduce Governor Palin and said he began to weep, even though he knew nothing about her. (I experienced the very same thing and we have had reports of many others including Newt Gingrich.) He asked what the significance of this 44-year-old woman was and he saw the clock said 4:44. He asked the Lord what that was and the Lord said, 'Ezekiel 44:4.'

'He brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the temple; so I looked, and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD; and I fell on my face. NKJV

North gate representing Alaska.

A few years ago Dutch and Chuck Pierce went on a 50-state tour prophesying over the state their part in God's purposes for the U.S. At the meeting in Texas that evening Dutch was relaying his experience about the Governor to Chuck who said, 'Do you remember what the word was the Lord gave us for Alaska?' The Lord had shown them that Alaska is the alpha and omega state. It is the place where things begin and end. You may realize that some of the Alaskan islands are on the other side of the Dateline meaning that he day begins and ends in Alaska. The Lord said that Alaska is a gateway for the Ancient of Days to come into the nation. The Lord told Dutch (back in Alaska) to tell the people of Alaska to look forward into their destiny. Alaska has an assignment to open doors and a place where prophets and intercessors were trained. It turns out that the Governor who was raised in a Pentecostal Church, according to our newspaper, founded the prayer movement in Alaska.

We will be having the last of our 90 days beginning in a major gathering Sept 11th. The significance of this is that Chuck Pierce had prophesied that there would be 7 years of war and Sept 11 marks the end of that time and the entering of the 8th year. Someone said that 44 = 4+4 or 8.

Dutch asked why he and Chuck were in Texas for this announcement and the Lord reminded him that the word for Texas was that it is a prophetic state - that the Lord's purpose for Texas is this prophetic function.

Dutch then decreed she will enter the White House. Now, if you don't know him, he is cautious, has his feet on the ground, and never goes of 'half cocked' when it comes to prophecy. He said that he believes as of Friday the U.S. has come into a new level of alignment with the Lord and His purposes. By the way, the Governor will be the 44th Vice President. He continued to declare that she will be the Margaret Thatcher of America including that she would be President one day. Many other things came forth. I literally thought I would explode because the Lord had shown me many of these same things yesterday.

I believe we especially need to rally prayer for the family and children of the Governor. They will be targeted by the enemy and I believe we need special prayer for the oldest daughter. Please take this seriously in your prayers.

NUMBER 2 (Corrections concerning the email above.)

September 8, 2008

There has been an email circulating with quotes from Pastor Dutch regarding Senator McCain and Governor Palin. This was NOT an email sent by Pastor Dutch. Someone took notes during a Sunday service and sent out this email. There are several inaccuracies within its content that warrant this statement.

The comment about Sarah Palin starting the prayer movement in Alaska is incorrect. She did not start the prayer movement, however, she is a woman of prayer. Pastor Dutch did not state that she is Pentecostal; the media has published that.

The comments regarding the vow made by Senator McCain while a POW are not correct. Pastor Dutch was told that someone sent Mr. McCain a letter that was prophetic in nature and asked if he had made promises to God while a POW. It was very personal in nature and his response was not disclosed.

Lastly, the statement about Sarah Palin being the 44th Vice President is wrong. If elected into office, Governor Palin would be in the 44th administration but would be the 47th vice president. In His grip,
Dutch Sheets

NUMBER 3 (A great video of Governor Sarah Palin speaking—in June of this year 2008—at the church she grew up in, Wasilla Assembly of God.)

NUMBER 4 (An email prayer request for Sarah Palin and her church.)

Prayer Request for Palin and her Church

Got this prayer request today from a good Christian friend.

'Among leaders who lack insight, abuse abounds, but for one who hates
corruption, the future is bright
' --Pr 28:16

9-3-08 Please pray for Sarah Palin and her church...

Hi, I received this today from a new EM (Executive Ministries) staff
woman. I think you will find it encouraging and informative.

Do pray... Thanks, Wendy (A Wheaton Grad. - friend of the Millers)

Greetings to all!

I'm a little embarrassed that this is my first EM Staff prayer request, but here goes!

Our pastor here is Bigfork, Montana, Hal Curtis, is friends with the pastor of Sarah Palin's pastor in Wasilla, Alaska. His name is David Pepper and the church is Full Gospel Church of Wasilla, AK. Three days before Gov. Palin was announced by John McCain as his choice for VP, she came before her pastor to be anointed and prayed over for service to God. She didn't tell the church what was going on....just that she needed their prayer support.

During the few days since the announcement, the pastor and the church have been bombarded with questions from the media. They are trying to get the word out to Christians all over the nation to pray for God's protection of Sarah Palin and of their church. They suspect that the treatment of Jeremiah Wright will pale in comparison to what is coming their way as a conservative Christian body.

When the little Down's Syndrome baby of Todd and Sarah Palin was dedicated a few months ago, their statement to the congregation was 'This little boy is my pro-life statement.' According to David Pepper, Todd and Sarah are very strong in their faith in Jesus Christ and believe God has put them in this position to serve Him.

Let's remember to pray for Gov. Palin and her family as they walk through this very trying time!

Thank you so much!

Vicky Creamer

p.s. Please pass this request on to other prayer warriors!


NUMBER 5 (A YouTube video of Kim Clement and the current presidential race.)

NUMBER 6 (One person's - kayhayjorjos - comments, that where posted on the video above, concerning prophecies by Kim Clement in general and the up coming election.)

"please go back and read his words regarding the election in 2007 and early 2008. KIM ID NOT SAYING OBAMA WILL BE PRESIDENT. he is vindicating obama but he is saying MCCAIN will be president. he has said that the new president will have "hot blood" (temper-as they have said about mccain) he has said that the new president has fought for america (mccain was in a war) he has said that they will say "what of the age, will one die in office" (that would be concern for mccain's advanced years)."

NUMBER 7 (Kim Clement's own prophetic words—taken from his own site www.kimclement.com. They are locked up in "The Vault" and, to my surprise and delight, where spoken on my birthday—June 21—of this year in San Jose, CA.)

June 21, 2008 - San Jose, CA

"And when there shall be the change of hands, there will be the change of arms in this country as you know. And when your new President comes in, they will say, "what of the age? What of the age? Will one die in office?" God said, it matters not, for I will bring civility because I will take three of your enemies and make them your footstool. I will take three of your enemies and I will make them your friends, says the Lord of Hosts, for there's going to be tremendous discoveries in the soil of the ancient China and God said, rejoice for tonight you are hearing the mysteries and the secrets about America. I am planning great things for you, says the Lord!"

NUMBER 8 (My own blogging post concerning the meaning of 8.8.08—August 8, 2008.)

I posted it here on my blog at: http://abundantlife-missions.blogspot.com/2008/08/9th-of-av-for-2008-and-august-8-2008.html

BUT I will just repost it here so you will not have to follow the link. This is what I posted in the above link:

The 9th of Av for 2008 and August 8, 2008 (8.8.08) Equals a Completely New Beginning

Jewish Year 5768: sunset August 9, 2008 - nightfall August 10, 2008

Beware of this date/time, for it is the 9th of Av.

This year's 9th of Av is unique because it the day before it is August 8th, 2008 (8.8.08). The number 8 represents "new beginnings" and and the number 3 represents "complete".


What we have here on August 8, 2008 is A COMPLETELY NEW BEGINNING. I am really not to sure what that means yet, but I am sure we shall all find out soon enough.

Revival Hymn YouTube Video and My Thoughts

If you are serious about your walk with the Lord, this 30 minute video is well worth watching and surly worth your time.

¶ Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. Isaiah 52:1

In fact, if I had the time (some might debate that I should have the time, but that argument is irrelevant...) I could add greatly to this post by examining and explaining certain parts the video. For example, it talks briefly about, one of the founders of the Methodist church, John Wesley. Also near the end of the video it speaks about a tale of two missionaries (of the Moravian church) who sold themselves into slavery to witness to an island full of slaves. (Now that is radical and EXTREME Christianity if you ask me!)

As I was looking into the story of these two missionaries, I came across who it is that is accredited with the sharing (or at least making a large amount of people aware of) the story; his name is Paris Reidhead. I think he is even one of the speakers in the YouTube video above, and it looks like the original sermon can be heard online. Lets see...

Ha! Fascinating! The title of the message is entitled: "Ten Shekels and a Shirt".

You can either follow the directly above link or just listen to the message below.

In conclusion, I just wanted to show you a little bit of how I could have added to this post. For the time being though, I think that I have done enough.

God Bless!


Mr. Song Li. Hang Seng Bank Email Internet Scam

I just received this email. I have to laugh because these schemers never give up, as I receive a couple of these phishing scams a week. I can only think of one appropriate four letter word to describe it: LAME!

Here are a couple of links to prove that this particular email is a scam. Beware of others like it too. I have even received emails from people claiming to be Christian widows, all the while sprinkling scripture in them. They are all fake emails and are called phishing scams, meant to get personal information such as bank account numbers.



I am including thee links in the email below, just for kicks.


Good Day ,

My name is Mr. Song Li. I work with the Hang Seng Bank. There is
a sum of $19,500,000.00 in my bank Hang Seng Bank", Hong Kong.
There were no beneficiaries stated concerning these funds which
means no one would ever come to claim it. That is why I ask that
we work together.

I do solicit for your assistance in effecting this transaction.
I intend to give 30% of the total funds as compensation for your
assistance. I will notify you on the full transaction on
receipt of your response if interested, and I shall send you the
details and necessary procedures with which to make the transfer.

E-mail; mrsong_li_01@yahoo.com.hk

Should you be interested? Please send me your:
1. Full names
2. Private phone number
3. Current residential address

Kind Regards,
Mr. Song Li.

Hotels in Thailand: Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket

I am trying out something different with this post. I will not say flat out what exactly it is (okay fine, this is kind of like a blog commercial or least an experimental blog commercial), but I just hope that you enjoy the ride. (Aren't some commercials actually funny and entertaining anyway? Though I do have to admit that I find most of them annoying.)

Have you ever thought about visiting Thailand? Or maybe you have already been there and are thinking about going back. Hey, maybe you even live there; I would not be surprised as the Internet knows no bounds. To be honest with you, I really know nothing of the area, and because of this, perhaps this will be a sort of educational post (unless of course if you know all about hotels in Thailand) for EVERYONE. In the title of this post, I have named the country of Thailand and three of the top cities (Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket) in Thailand. What I will do is put a Wikipedia link in for the country and the three cities. That will be where the educational part of this post comes in. (Real teacher like and educational of me, right? But hey, I do enjoy reading and placing Wikipedia links if only just to read the first paragraph in them. After that, sometimes I find there is no point to continue reading the article unless you really need to study it or are very interested in the subject.)

If (by a million to one chance) you are interested in visiting Thailand and are in need of a hotel, perhaps visiting - http://www.wutravel.com - may well be worth your time.

For any of my regular readers (if I have any...) this post might seem kind of random and out of the blue (though in the end—well more in the beginning—I did decide to share my exact motive for this post). However, I am really gearing it for anyone who might seek for a hotel in Thailand (or one of the above mentioned cities) through a Google search using some of the words in the title of this post: "Hotels in Thailand: Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket".

For kicks, here is an example of what I mean: http://www.google.com/search?q=Hotels+in+Thailand%3A+Bangkok%2C+Pattaya%2C+Phuket&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-US&ie=utf8&oe=utf8

As expected, this post did not show up on the first page, as I am sure there are plenty of companies competing for that coveted position. Nonetheless, I post this post, just because (maybe someday I will have a better reason for you...).

Enjoy your day and God bless!

Creative and Humorous Jerusalem Tourism YouTube Video... and some Thoughts

One of the most unique experiences that I have been encountering on the Internet since I started to labor (if that is what you want to call it) in this field, are emails/requests/correspondence from a variety of people for various reasons. The latest of these correspondences comes from a fellow in Online Marketing asking if I could find a way to comfortably post this YouTube video. Though this is not a video that I would normally post on this blog (though I do like the idea that it is Pro-Israel, of which I am extremely), I feel that the mere simple act of posting this video will give you an idea and an insight into what it is like to be me receiving the most interesting of requests.

Also, to be a little bit more frank, honest and genuine, I think that the main reason behind me posting this video here on this blog is because of Genesis 12:3. It reads reads:

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Along with the Israeli flag that I fly on the top right hand of this blog, perhaps me posting this video is just another expression of me blessing Abraham and expecting to be blessed by God in return.

Speaking/writing/blogging about Israel has got me thinking about Israel, imagine that. I have always wanted to visit, what a dream come true that would be. To walk where Jesus walked... One day I suppose God will make away. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, My beloved Jerusalem...

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not! Matthew 23:37

Wow! I did not see this scripture coming! I recently heard a man speak about Jerusalem being the center of the Earth... Who was that guy again? I saw him on TBN/God T.V. (or whatever it was) and he was explaining it beautifully; I think he even said that Jerusalem could have been the exact location of the Garden of Eden... I tried looking for him Online, but I am just way to tired to continue to look at this time and fully understand what he was saying. Anyway, I got to go for now.

God bless!


(Update 9.20.08)

This is the original post that got me going about Jerusalem, and since I did this one, I have done two more on the subject. They are as follows:

1.) Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: They shall Prosper that Love Thee.

2.) Jerusalem, the Garden of Eden?

It sure has been fun!
