GO FUND ME for a new book titled GOD'S FURY: America’s Love of Fossil Fuels and God’s Subsequent Wrath by G.R. MILLER - PART 1 of 5 - INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this GO FUND ME account is to establish a 501C3 Nonprofit organization to complete my book titled GOD’S FURY: America’s Love of Fossil Fuels and God’s Subsequent Wrath by G.R. Miller.
When Christ commissioned the Twelve Apostles before the began their journey to spread the Word of God, He said "As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”
In the Parable of the Lost Sheep, He said "I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.”
My name is GAry RAy MIller like the three archangels GAbriel, RAphael & MIchael identified in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and venerated angels within the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and Lutheran traditions.
Gabriel is the "messenger" who provided understanding of “end times” visions to the Prophet Daniel and announced the coming of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ. In the Book of Tobit, Raphael is the "healer" who accompanies Tobiah, Tobit’s son, to Media and who later cures Tobit of blindness and expels a demon who persecutes his daughter-in-law Sarah. Michael is the Patron angel and Guardian of Israel and leader of God's Army discussed in the Book of Daniel, who fought Satan over the body of Moses, then with his army of angels, cast Satan and his army of demons out of Heaven and down to Earth, bringing salvation and power to the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. Gabriel, Raphael and Michael, along with Uriel, Raguel, Saraqâêl, and Remiel are the Seven Angels of the Presence, specially designated intercessors who present prayers to God.
According to the Talmud, Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael appeared to Abraham in the oak grove of Mamre, in the region of Hebron. (Gen. xviii; Bava Metzia 86b). Michael, as the greatest, walked in the middle, with Gabriel to his right and Raphael to his left (Yoma 37a). All three angels were commanded to carry out a specific mission. Gabriel's purpose was to destroy Sodom; Michael's mission was to inform Sarah that she would give birth to Issac in a year; Raphael's mission was to heal Abraham (from his recent circumcision) and save Abraham's nephew, Lot.
G is the 7th letter of the alphabet, M the 13th, and R the 18th. 7-13-18 is a significant date in that it was a previous 6th Seal Event (Rev.6:12-13) which lasted from July 13, 2018, through July 28, 2018. It's described in the following link:
The Final Warning for The Final Countdown
I was born on October 2, 1960, which is the Catholic Memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels, a feast which was instituted by Pope Paul V in 1608. From the 1960 Roman Missal, “Some are God’s messengers; some watch over us."
Missal Readings from October 2, 1960:
Introit Ps. 103:20 (102:20 in 1960)
"Bless the LORD, all ye His angels; you that are mighty in strength, and execute His word, hearkening to the voice of all His orders. Ps. Bless the Lord. O my soul; and let all that is within me praise His holy Name. Glory."
Lesson: Ex. 23:20-23
"Thus saith the Lord God: Behold I will send My Angel, who shall go before thee, and keep thee in thy Journey, and bring thee into the place that I have prepared. Take notice of him, and hear his voice, and do not think him to be contemned: for he will not forgive when thou hast sinned, and My Name is in him. But if thou wilt hear his voice, and do all that I speak, I will be an enemy to thy enemies, and will afflict them that afflict that afflict thee. And My Angel shall go before thee."
Gradual: Ps 91:11-12 (90:11-12 in 1960)
"God hath given His Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. In their hands they shall bear thee up, lest as any time thou dash thy foot against a stone."
"Bless the Lord, all ye hosts: you ministers of His who do His will. Alleluia."
Gospel: Mt. 18:1-10
"The Greatest in the Kingdom. 1 At that time the disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2He called a child over, placed it in their midst, 3 and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me. Temptations to Sin. 6 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of things that cause sin! Such things must come, but woe to the one through whom they come! 8e If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life maimed or crippled than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into eternal fire. 9And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into fiery Gehenna.
St. John was given a vision of the 6th of 7 Seals in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 6, verses 12 - 17;
12 Then I watched while he broke open the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; the sun turned as black as dark sackcloth [solar eclipse] and the whole moon became like blood [lunar eclipse]. 13The stars in the sky fell to the earth like unripe figs shaken loose from the tree in a strong wind [meteor shower]. 14Then the sky was divided like a torn scroll curling up [nuclear bomb mushroom cloud], and every mountain and island was moved from its place. 15The kings of the earth, the nobles, the military officers, the rich, the powerful, and every slave and free person hid themselves in caves and among mountain crags. 16They cried out to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17because the great day of their wrath has come and who can withstand it?”
This passage corresponds to the Prophet Isaiah’s visions in Chapter 24 (titled Judgment upon the World and the Lord’s Enthronement on Mount Zion), verses 16 - 23 which read;
16From the end of the earth we hear songs: “Splendor to the Just One!” But I said, “I am wasted, wasted away. Woe is me! The traitors betray; with treachery have the traitors betrayed! 17Terror, pit, and trap for you, inhabitant of the earth! 18One who flees at the sound of terror will fall into the pit; One who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the trap. For the windows on high are open and the foundations of the earth shake. 19The earth will burst asunder, the earth will be shaken apart, the earth will be convulsed. 20The earth will reel like a drunkard, sway like a hut; Its rebellion will weigh it down; it will fall, never to rise again." [Nuclear War]” 21On that day the LORD will punish the host of the heavens in the heavens [meteor shower], and the kings of the earth on the earth. 22They will be gathered together like prisoners into a pit; They will be shut up in a dungeon, and after many days they will be punished. 23Then the moon will blush [Lunar Eclipse] and the sun be ashamed [Solar Eclipse], For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, glorious in the sight of the elders.
Christ also saw this vision in the Gospel According to St. Matthew, Chap. 24, verses 29 - 31, titled The Coming of the Son of Man.
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened [Solar Eclipse], and the moon will not give its light [Lunar Eclipse], and the stars will fall from the sky [meteor shower], and the powers of the heavens will be shaken [Nuclear War]. 30 And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
I was born during a 6th event (Rev.6:12-13):
My mother’s name is Virginia.
My father’s name is Raymond (which means "wise-protector" or "counsel") whose occupation is listed as a Carpenter on my birth certificate.
My place of birth was the Hospital of St. Joseph who is the Patron of the Universal Church, unborn children, fathers, workers, travelers, immigrants, and a happy death.
I am an eschatologist, albeit self-taught. I am not a Biblical literalist particularly when it comes to Creation described in the Book of Genesis, Chapters 1 and 2. The Scripture reads that God created the heavens, earth, seas, flora, and fauna, including man, in 6 days and rested on the 7th day, which He blessed and made it Holy. In St. Peter’s 2nd Epistle, Chapter 3, verse 8 it reads; But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand [immensity] years and a thousand years like one day. As an engineer and pragmatist, I believe in the Penrose-Hawking Theorem of Singularity (Big Bang); therefore, the universe is 13.82 billion years old and continues to expand. Stephen Hawking was an atheist who passed away in March 2018 and to the best of my knowledge, neither he nor Roger Penrose could ever fully explain what was the Singularity other than "a point of infinite density and spacetime curvature, where time has a beginning." Simply put, it was God. Ninety-six times the phrase "I am the LORD" is used in the New American Bible from Gen.15:7, when God made His Covenant with Abram, through Zec.10:6, as the Lord strengthened Judah and rescued Ephraim. In Exodus Chapter 3, when God called and commissioned Moses to rescue the enslaved Hebrews from the Egyptian masters, Moses inquired of His name to tell the Hebrews. The Lord replied to Moses: "I AM who I AM. Then he added: This is what you will tell the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you." In Rev.22:12-13, God's final warning of His Coming reads; 12“Behold, I AM coming soon. I bring with me the recompense I will give to each according to his deeds. 13I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
We live on a planet which is 4.52 billion years old and has undergone 5 Mass Extinction events. Two of those events, the Permian-Triassic (P-Tr) and Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) destroyed the dinosaurs (dragons), so God could eventually give man dominion when he came into being about 300,000 years ago. Five thousand seven hundred seventy-nine years ago (Anno Mundi), God provided a man named Adam His Spirit. 149 years ago, the Second Industrial Revolution began, coinciding with a man named John D. Rockefeller founding the Standard Oil Company, thus starting a slow process where man began transferring his dominion over God’s Creation, in violation of the Noahic Covenant, back to the Dragon, Devil, Satan, Ancient Serpent, Lucifer, Leviathan and Rahab. He has many names, but only one goal: the 6th Mass Extinction of both man’s flesh and soul. Satan may very well succeed, given mankind's appetite for wealth, his denial toward sound science and the prophecy/science that 10 years from now, this 4.5 billion-year-old rock we live on, will be controlled by "four beasts” described in Daniel 7:1-8. Four kingdoms driven by greed and apathy, which will bring our planet to a rapid and cruel ecological death, similar to the aforementioned P-Tr and K-Pg Mass Extinction Events.
I’m a degreed Civil Engineer, educated at the University of Texas at Austin, Cockrell School of Engineering. Rex Tillerson, the former Secretary of State and CEO of ExxonMobil (the direct descendant of Standard Oil) and I have the same degree from the same college. We both rely on math and science to achieve answers to complex questions. Rex graduated in 1975 and in 1982, his employer prophesied climate change, yet were silent about its existential threat to mankind. Rex and I both started in the fossil fuels energy business. Three years after Rex graduated from UT, I was working a summer job as a laborer at the Exxon (now ExxonMobil) Refinery in Baytown, TX. I worked most summers and Christmas holidays, again at the Exxon Refinery, Texas City Amoco (now BP) Refinery, and various smaller facilities in the Houston area one of which is now the ECHO crude oil export terminal. In the summer of 1979, I was pipefitter's "helper" (apprentice) on the second phase of the terminal's construction. Seventeen years later, I was responsible for all projects at the same terminal while employed by Enterprise Products Company as their Project Engineering Manager. My resume is posted under the section AUTHOR.
In the last nine years, I’ve used work experience, science, math and theology to solve 3,000-year-old questions. My journey began in late December 2009, but I chose to start with the Book of Revelation and work backward to the Book of Genesis. Eschatology, Old and New Testament Prophecies, and Wisdom were more fulfilling than the Old Testament Historical Books. The Book of Revelation or Apocalypse is based on symbolic visions given to St. John while imprisoned in a Roman penal Colony on the Greek Island of Patmos. The book's descriptions are not to be taken literally:
I published a book in May 2013 titled Tribulation by G.R. Miller. It’s not very good, but based on the information I had at the time it’s mostly accurate. It’s a prelude to what we now see with Donald Trump. Several of the missing pieces didn’t start materializing until 2014 with the rise of ISIL and on June 16, 2015 (616), with the emergence of Donald Trump.
Non-Literalism and Decoding the 7 Seals
I've read two books from the same genre: In 2011 Storm Warning by Rev. Billy Graham and his son Rev. Franklin Graham and in 2015, Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change by Pastor John Hagee which I discuss in Part 4 of 5.
Storm Warning was written in 1992 and updated in 2010. Regarding his writing style, Rev. Graham says; “I will be as specific and literal as possible. I have provided commentary from scholars wherever I thought they might help clarify certain terms and concepts. My purpose is not to dwell on specific theological issues concerning the Second Coming of Christ, or to offer a personal exposition of events such as the Rapture of the church, the Tribulation, or the Millennium.” The Grahams took commentary from scholars, and I've taken theological comments from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in the New American Catholic Study Bible. Rev. Graham points out that St. John’s message, in many cases, is the same message prophesied in the Old Testament. Most notably is Revelation 13:1-18 discussing the Beast and False Prophet which was also prophesied approximately 600 years earlier in Daniel 7:1-28. Rev. Graham believes that the first four seals and the coming of Christ will literally come in the form of horses from the Heaven, where I'm a realist and look at the symbolic meaning and I do picture most symbolic descriptions realistically.
Decoding the Seven Seals, Trumpets, and Plagues, with Seals, Trumpets, and Plagues, with Interludes.
A series of seven disasters now begins as each seal is broken (Rev 6:1–8:1), followed by a similar series as seven trumpets sound (Rev 8:2–11:19) and as seven angels pour bowls on the earth causing plagues (Rev 15:1–16:21). These cataclysmic sequences are interrupted by longer or shorter scenes suggesting the triumph of God and his witnesses (e.g., Rev 7; 10; 11; 12; 13; 14).
My “decoding" work in the Book of Revelation began in November 2010 and has continued over the last eight years. One might say that I took a partial preterism/futurism approach to my writing, meaning some prophecies of the Bible had already happened. Partial preterists believe that with the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70, Ancient Israel found it’s attainment in Christianity. Given that I started writing in 2010, fulfillment of prophecies began 21 years earlier when Iraq invaded Kuwait and man chose to kill his fellow man for oil, described in Rev.14:9-10 as the Wine of God’s Fury. The 1st four seals symbolically represent the 41st, 43rd, 44th and 45th U.S. Presidents overseeing wars in the land which was once ancient Babylon. For all of my research, I use the Kindle version of the New American Bible, specifically the word search. Early on, I did a word search for “pollute” to determine modern-day applicability. Bloodshed and the pollution of air and water (destruction of God’s Creation) are the most abominable in God’s eyes. His words come from the Pentateuch (5 Books of Moses), Prophetic Books, Wisdom Books, the Book of Revelation and Book of Enoch.
The 1st three seals were evident at that time:
The 1st Seal was President George H.W. Bush (White Horse and a victorious rider wearing a crown and carrying a bow in Operation Desert Storm). Let me clarify something about the recently departed Pres. Bush, his representation as the 1st Seal and my subsequent remarks about man killing his fellowman for oil (God’s Fury): The 1st Seal occurred when Iraq invaded Kuwait on Aug. 2, 1990. The subsequent U.S. involvement in Operation Desert Storm, which led to the Iraq Army being driven out of Kuwait, was a righteous cause following a well-defined mission.
From the Catholic Catechism:
PART THREE LIFE IN CHRIST
SECTION TWO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
CHAPTER TWO "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF"
ARTICLE 5 THE FIFTH COMMANDMENT
Ex.20:13 You shall not kill.
Par. 2265 "Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who is responsible for the lives of others. The defense of the common good requires that an unjust aggressor be rendered unable to cause harm. For this reason, those who legitimately hold authority also have the right to use arms to repel aggressors against the civil community entrusted to their responsibility.”
Biblically, Legitimate Defense can best be exemplified by a NATO Article 5 invocation by one of our allies as the defense from attack by a hostile foreign power such as Russia.
George H.W. Bush was a righteous man. My earliest memory of politics was a 1966 George Bush for Congress TX-7 sign in my front yard in Pasadena, TX. He would go on to serve a distinguished career in public service for 26 years as a member of the Republican Party.
The 2nd Seal was George W. Bush (Red Horse with a rider carrying a huge sword to take peace away from the earth in Operation Iraqi Freedom), and the 3rd Seal was Barack Obama (Black Horse and rider holding scales, the sign of a constitutional lawyer) who inherited but ended the Iraq War.
I spent the next 6+ years decoding the 4th Seal which reads;
Rev.6:7-8 7When he broke open the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature [Eagle] cry out, “Come forward.” 8I looked, and there was a pale green* horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades accompanied him. They were given authority over a quarter of the earth [Leopard, one the four beasts in Dan.7:1-8], to kill with sword [war], famine [drought from climate change], and plague [diminished healthcare], and by means of the beasts of the earth [fossil fuel exploration and production].
* [6:8] Pale green: symbol of death and decay; cf. Ez 14:21.
From late 2010 through early 2012, I believed the fourth seal was former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. After her failed attempt at becoming Vice President in 2008, she became the voice of the Tea Party, and I watched the movement grow more radicalized as the 2012 presidential election approached in November. Pro Big Oil and anti-environmental, I believed Gov. Palin was the match to light a future powder keg in the Middle East which I had decoded as the 6th Trumpet and 6th Bowl/Plague: An apocalyptic war between Israel and the combined armies of Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria at Mt. Megiddo (Armageddon) in Israel. The Tea Party’s unwillingness to negotiate with the moderate Republicans and Democrats stalled legislation relating to job growth, healthcare, and the environment. In the CNN / Tea Party Express Debate on Sept. 12, 2011 in Tampa, Fla., Wolf Blitzer asked Rep. Ron Paul, “Congressman, are you saying that society should just let him (someone who did not have health insurance) die?” to which a small number of audience members shouted “Yeah!”. I had the vision of Christ standing next to Pilate, with a crowd yelling "crucify him.” In my eyes, we had lost our way from Christ's Greatest Commandments? Mt.22:37-40;
37 He said to him, “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the greatest and the first commandment. 39The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”
I’ve always decoded the "Beasts of the Earth" as the oil/coal companies with their eventual destruction of the Earth. I was convinced that if the Tea Party gained power in both Executive and Legislative Branches, they'd push for war between Israel and Iran, again destabilizing the Middle East, and creating an environment of domestic "drill, baby, drill" sentiment due to the instability of foreign oil imports.
My concerns were never alleviated, particularly after Senator Ted Cruz became their “darling.” I didn’t expect Governor Jeb Bush to get the Republican nomination for president and I knew Cruz couldn’t beat Secretary Hillary Clinton in the general election; however, even after constantly watching four years for the appearance of the Fourth Seal, I never saw Donald J. Trump coming and even after he announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015 (616), nine months passed before I took him seriously. The Tea Party and Republican Conservatism had given way to “Trumpism.”
My first encounter with Donald Trump was in July 2010. The below letter and illustrations were sent to him on July 13, 2010 (713), but I can’t find a scan of the signed copy.
I'll digress for a moment. The date of the letter, 7-13-2010 is significant. 7:13 and 13:7 are inverse and critical numbers in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The Book of Revelation is somewhat a continuation and further definition of the Book of Daniel, chapters 7, 8 and 12. That was the basis of my book cover below for TRIBULATION by G.R. Miller.
Dan.7:13 "As the visions during the night continued, I saw coming with the clouds of heaven One like a son of man.* When he reached the Ancient of Days and was presented before him,"
* [7:13–14] One like a son of man: In contrast to the worldly kingdoms opposed to God, which are represented as grotesque beasts [Lion, Bear, Leopard and 4th Beast], the coming Kingdom of God is represented by a human figure. Scholars disagree as to whether this figure should be taken as a collective symbol for the people of God (cf. 7:27) or identified as a particular individual, e.g., the archangel Michael (cf. 12:1) or the messiah. The phrase “Son of Man” becomes a title for Jesus in the gospels, especially in passages dealing with the Second Coming (Mk 13 and parallels).
Rev.7:13 "Then one of the elders [one of the 24 in Heaven] spoke up and said to me, “Who are these wearing white robes, and where did they come from?”
And now the "inverse" or something antithetical to Christ:
The three crosses above the water line represent Christ and the two revolutionaries who were crucified at the Place of the Skull: the Latin word for skull is Calvaria; hence “Calvary.”
The beast illustration comes from Rev.13:1 The First Beast. "1Then I saw a beast come out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads; on its horns were ten diadems, and on its heads blasphemous name[s]."
An upside down Cross representing Satanism is a myth. Its origin is from the crucifixion of St. Peter who requested he be crucified upside down as a sign of his "lack of worthiness" to be martyred with the same symbolism as Christ. Mechanically, it represents a "single-ram blowout preventer" which was used in the early days of offshore oil and gas exploration and production. Multi-ram blowout preventers are now used. The "I" represents the well casing and the "O" represents the well opening to the "abyss", leading to the "Dragon". It's fairly simple: "Dragon" = Dinosaur and after their deaths in the P-Tr and K-Pg Mass Extinctions from 252 - 66 million years ago = Fossil Fuels.
A letter-for-letter conversion of my name to Greek, then numerated based on the Greek alphabet is 1820, thus the "L" represents the hands of a clock or "time" moving clockwise to the date 7-13-2018. Per Rev.12:6, I believe it's the beginning of a 1,260 day (the length of a TRIBULATION) countdown to the Coming of the Son of Man and better explained in Part 5 of 5.
Rev.12:6 "The woman herself fled into the desert where she had a place prepared by God, that there she might be taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days."
The Scriptural verse precedes the War in Heaven when St. Michael casts Satan down to the Earth.
Rev.12:7-9,12,18 "7Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, 8but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. 9The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it."
"12Therefore, rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them. But woe to you, earth and sea, for the Devil has come down to you in great fury, for he knows he has but a short time.”
"18It took its position on the sand of the sea."
I began working on the book cover in October 2011 and completed it in 2012 and during all that time had no idea of the significance of July 13, 2018 until last month.
The electronic date stamp I have on the letter to Trump is Aug. 2, 2010, which means I may have saved it again after it's original production and I can’t find a scan of the signed copy. The automatic date stamp of the illustrations is July 12, 2010, so I can only assume that the date on the letter is accurate and I know that I mailed it. Trump knew I was coming. At that time, my son and I were living in Cypress, TX and we moved to the Upper West Side of Manhattan in late June 2011. In 2012, he began "buying up" far-right Christian Evangelicals. One of his first was Franklin Graham who accepted donations totaling $135,000 from the Trump Foundation to the Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA) in 2012.
Please understand that when I assembled this letter, I had not been a person of strong faith. I was very “new” to biblical study, and I wanted more than anything to bring peace between the four religious beliefs (Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism) which are primarily practiced in countries who possess nuclear weapons: France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States, India, Pakistan, and Israel. Granted Buddhism is the world’s 4th largest religion; however, the Communist Party in China and North Korea are officially atheist, and to the best of my knowledge, Buddhists do not influence Communist Party politics.
I never received a response from the Trump Organization, and after spending over three years studying Donald Trump and probably eight years of him studying me, I now know why. He's everything antithetical to me. He is a self-proclaimed NATIONALIST and a xenophobe who derides Islamic and Latin American immigrants to the point of wanting to ban both populations from our nation, including birthright citizens. A Climate Change denier when California is experiencing its largest (by the area covered) and most destructive (by the loss of life) fires while at the same time an ice sheet, the size of Manhattan, separates from the Antarctic ice shelf. A conspiracy theorist beginning with President Obama’s citizenship to now accusations of massive voter fraud in close elections where Republicans risk losing to a Democrat. A Narcissist to the point of Psychopathy. Trump is everything antithetical to what Christianity represents.
Five weeks later, Trump announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015. The significance of the date is the number 616. Most people believe that 666 is the only numerical value of the antichrist. 666 is symbolic of Greek - Hebrew Gematria for the name "Kaisar Neron" who at the time of St. John in the mid-first century, persecuted the first Jewish Christians. All of Christ’s apostles were martyred except for St. John. 616 comes from Latin - Hebrew Gematria for the name "Caesar Nero"which is best explained in Rev.13:18 and the USCCB footnote from the passage which reads;
Rev.13:18* Wisdom is needed here; one who understands can calculate the number of the beast, for it is a number that stands for a person. His number is six hundred and sixty-six.
* [13:18] Each of the letters of the alphabet in Hebrew as well as in Greek has a numerical value. Many possible combinations of letters will add up to 666, and many candidates have been nominated for this infamous number. The most likely is the emperor Caesar Nero (see note on Rev 13:3), the Greek form of whose name in Hebrew letters gives the required sum. (The Latin form of this name equals 616, which is the reading of a few manuscripts.) Nero personifies the emperors who viciously persecuted the church. It has also been observed that “6” represents imperfection, falling short of the perfect number “7,” and is represented here in a triple or superlative form.
Dr. Kim Haines-Eitzen, Professor of World Religions at Cornell University, best explains it to Morgan Freeman in the following video:
In March 2016, I suspected Trump would be the 4th Seal in Rev.6:7-8 and the Lawless One bringing on the Apostasy described in 2Thes.2:1-17. Trump has targeted and recruited several high profile religious leaders mainly from denominational offshoots of the Protestant Reformation’s Calvinist Branch, who preach a gospel of exclusivity, bigotry, and prosperity and whom I refer to as “Trump Evangelical Christians” or False Prophets spoken of in Mt. 24:24. They come from houses of worship best described by St. John as the Church of Sardis (“I know your works, that you have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead.”) the Church of Laodicea (“For you say, ‘I am rich and affluent and have no need of anything,’”). These are False Prophets that have devolved from being Revivalists to now prosperity theologians who view the Holy Trinity as a “Divine Pyramid Scheme.” They naively believe Trump repealed the Johnson Amendment, which was created to prevent preaching politics from the pulpit to the pews. By executive order, he requested the IRS show leniency, as it will now often be violated as Trump apostatizes Christianity.
Evangelical or Death
On May 8, 2016, I tweeted the following to the FBI regarding their investigation of Secretary Clinton disclosing classified information contained in her emails from a private computer server while serving as Secretary of State. She would be found not guilty of any crime in July 2016.
In Sep. 2016, Sec. Hillary Clinton used the word “Deplorables” to describe Trump supporters. “Deplorables” is used once in the New American Bible describing Abimelech, the 13th Judge in the 7th (137) Book of the Bible, Judges: "His career is presented as deplorable, a cautionary tale of royal ambition."
I announced Trump in the early morning hours of November 9, 2016.
Rev.6:7-8 "7When he broke open the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature [Eagle] cry out, 'Come forward.' 8I looked, and there was a pale green* horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades accompanied him. They were given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and plague, and by means of the beasts of the earth."
* [6:8] Pale green: symbol of death and decay; cf. Ez 14:21.
From the New American Bible, Introduction to the Deuterocanonical Book of Wisdom;
"The Book of Wisdom was written about fifty years before the coming of Christ. Its author, whose name is not known to us, was probably a member of the Jewish community at Alexandria, in Egypt. He wrote in Greek, in a style patterned on that of Hebrew verse. At times he speaks in the person of Solomon, placing his teachings on the lips of the wise king of Hebrew tradition in order to emphasize their value. His profound knowledge of the earlier Old Testament writings is reflected in almost every line of the book, and marks him, like Ben Sira, as an outstanding representative of religious devotion and learning among the sages of postexilic Judaism. The primary purpose of the author was the edification of his co-religionists in a time when they had experienced suffering and oppression, in part at least at the hands of apostate fellow Jews. To convey his message he made use of the most popular religious themes of his time, namely the splendor and worth of divine wisdom (6:22–11:1), the glorious events of the exodus (11:2–16; 12:23–27; 15:18–19:22), God’s mercy (11:17–12:22), the folly of idolatry (13:1–15:17), and the manner in which God’s justice operates in rewarding or punishing the individual (1:1–6:21). The first ten chapters in particular provide background for the teaching of Jesus and for some New Testament theology about Jesus. Many passages from this section of the book, notably 3:1–8, are used by the church in the liturgy."
THIS IS PROPHETIC AND REAL TIME
Wisdom Chapter 2, verses 1 - 24 read;
"1For, not thinking rightly, they said among themselves:* “Brief and troubled is our lifetime; there is no remedy for our dying, nor is anyone known to have come back from Hades. 2For by mere chance were we born, and hereafter we shall be as though we had not been; Because the breath in our nostrils is smoke, and reason a spark from the beating of our hearts, 3And when this is quenched, our body will be ashes and our spirit will be poured abroad like empty air. 4Even our name will be forgotten in time, and no one will recall our deeds. So our life will pass away like the traces of a cloud, and will be dispersed like a mist Pursued by the sun’s rays and overpowered by its heat. 5For our lifetime is the passing of a shadow; and our dying cannot be deferred because it is fixed with a seal; and no one returns. 6Come, therefore, let us enjoy the good things that are here, and make use of creation with youthful zest. 7Let us have our fill of costly wine and perfumes, and let no springtime blossom pass us by; 8let us crown ourselves with rosebuds before they wither. 9Let no meadow be free from our wantonness; everywhere let us leave tokens of our merriment, for this is our portion, and this our lot. 10Let us oppress the righteous poor; let us neither spare the widow nor revere the aged for hair grown white with time. 11But let our strength be our norm of righteousness; for weakness proves itself useless. 12 Let us lie in wait for the righteous one, because he is annoying to us; he opposes our actions, Reproaches us for transgressions of the law. and charges us with violations of our training. 13He professes to have knowledge of God and styles himself a child of the LORD. 14To us he is the censure of our thoughts; merely to see him is a hardship for us, 15Because his life is not like that of others, and different are his ways. 16He judges us debased; he holds aloof from our paths as from things impure. He calls blest the destiny of the righteous and boasts that God is his Father. 17Let us see whether his words be true; let us find out what will happen to him in the end. 18For if the righteous one is the son of God, God will help him and deliver him from the hand of his foes. 19With violence and torture let us put him to the test that we may have proof of his gentleness and try his patience. 20Let us condemn him to a shameful death; for according to his own words, God will take care of him.” 21These were their thoughts, but they erred; for their wickedness blinded them, 22* And they did not know the hidden counsels of God; neither did they count on a recompense for holiness nor discern the innocent souls’ reward. 23For God formed us to be imperishable; the image of his own nature he made us. 24But by the envy* of the devil, death entered the world, and they who are allied with him experience it.
* [2:1–20] In this speech the wicked deny survival after death and indeed invite death by their evil deeds.
* [2:12–5:23] From 2:12 to 5:23 the author draws heavily on Is 52–62, setting forth his teaching in a series of characters or types taken from Isaiah and embellished with additional details from other texts. The description of the “righteous one” in 2:12–20seems to undergird the New Testament passion narrative.
* [2:12] Law: the law of Moses; “training” has the same meaning.
* [2:22] This verse announces the subject of the next section.
* [2:24] Envy: perhaps because Adam was in the image of God or because Adam had control over all creation. Devil: the first biblical text to equate the serpent of Gn 3 with the devil.
Although Christ was prophesied in Isaiah Chapters 7, 52 and 53, this is the first time, the term “son of God” is used in the Bible. The term “Son of Man” appears 254 times in the New American Bible, including footnotes, starting with Psalms and continuing with the Prophets Ezekiel, Daniel, Jonah, all four Gospels, Acts, Hebrews and Revelation. Per Ezekiel 33:1-9 A prophet has an obligation to God to be a Sentinel. If we want Salvation, We have no choice,
Ez.33:1-9 The Prophet as Sentinel. 1The word of the LORD came to me: 2Son of man, speak to your people and tell them: When I bring the sword against a land, if the people of that land select one of their number as a sentinel* for them, 3and the sentinel sees the sword coming against the land, he should blow the trumpet to warn the people. 4If they hear the trumpet but do not take the warning and a sword attacks and kills them, their blood will be on their own heads. 5They heard the trumpet blast but ignored the warning; their blood is on them. If they had heeded the warning, they could have escaped with their lives. 6If, however, the sentinel sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the sword attacks and takes someone’s life, his life will be taken for his own sin, but I will hold the sentinel responsible for his blood. 7 You, son of man—I have appointed you as a sentinel for the house of Israel; when you hear a word from my mouth, you must warn them for me. 8When I say to the wicked, “You wicked, you must die,” and you do not speak up to warn the wicked about their ways, they shall die in their sins, but I will hold you responsible for their blood. 9If, however, you warn the wicked to turn from their ways, but they do not, then they shall die in their sins, but you shall save your life.
As I post these five blogs, I’ve done everything that I can do to educate to the world about who Donald Trump is eschatologically and the doom he has brought and will bring upon the earth, both spiritually and physically. The Trumpets and Plagues illustrated in Part 2 of 5 are merely a prelude what will come after the Rapture. Old Testament Prophets Joel, Isaiah, Daniel and the Book of Wisdom (Wisdom of Solomon) spanning approximately 1,000 years before Christ and the first century New Testament prophets, Jesus Christ, St. Paul and St. John, spanning nearly 100 years, saw these visions, some remarkably similar. Now, over 1,900 years after St. John’s death, they're coming to bear.
The biggest stumbling block in writing this blog has been to ask for financial assistance. I’ve been working paying jobs and paying taxes for 42 years. My last full-time engineering job paid six figures to be a Senior Project Manager for the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) on a large refining complex to be built in Cartagena, Colombia. I was laid off in June 2009, when the project was “tabled" due to the declining price of oil. I had finally left a business sector that I had worked in for 31 years.
My parents tragically died in October 2007, and there was a substantial inheritance, but with that much added financial responsibility. John, my oldest son, began living with me in August 2009. He was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and an Intellectual Disability (60-70 IQ) in 2002 at age 4. He was diagnosed with a Mood Disorder in August 2015 after being hospitalized for several weeks, both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
I’m not going to go into detail about the circumstances of me becoming John’s primary custodial parent, other than to say it worked out for the best. John humbled me when I most needed to be humbled, and he gained a parent who could care for him seven days a week. It's many times has been a rocky road, but it has been the most fulfilling nine years of my life. John is now 20 and attends high school here in Brooklyn, NY and will finish when he turns 21 in May. He’s very independent: He cooks most of his meals, cleans and dresses himself, and we’re working on him doing his laundry, washing dishes and making his bed. John has a bright outlook for one day living in a supervised adult residential community for the intellectually disabled. I went into greater detail about our lives together in my January 2018 blog titled “My Life My Story.”
Raising an autistic child with an intellectual disability and a mood disorder into adulthood can be both financially and emotionally devastating; fortunately, my Faith in God has got me through the emotional part. John began receiving his SSI benefits in July 2018, one year after applying, which were retroactive to the previous March. He also has a Special Needs Trust. The greatest financial difficulty is my loss of wages when I have to attend to John, and I’ve been attending to him full time as his Mood Disorder began worsening in April 2018 with an emergency room hospitalization. He reached a "boiling point” in August 2018 when he had to be restrained by the New York Police Department (NYPD) and me, then hospitalized overnight for the second time. Because I've been homebound with John since August, some may say that I’m not taking advantage of his Medicaid Services; however, those who choose to bear witness against me falsely weren’t present when my John attacked a Haredi Jewish woman for no apparent reason on August 21, 2018. Most of John's difficulties are environmental factors: A small apartment and disruptive neighbors who appear to realize that John suffers from their behavior: Loud noises such as banging on the adjoining walls and their floor above while yelling and screaming in front of our building. The tribulations my son and I have endured at the hands of the New York Department of Education (An Open Letter to Carmen Fariña - New York City Schools Chancellor), Office for People With Developmental (OPWDD) and our Medicaid Service Provider are beyond comprehension other than to just exemplify that New York City and many of its residents are consumed with iniquity. As the world witnessed in NAZI Germany, iniquity only devours objective, fair-minded people when lawlessness prevails.
My credit score is currently 485. I have yet to declare bankruptcy but have very little money to live on without some debt relief and regaining steady employment while still taking care of my children. Per the spreadsheets below I am deeply in debt to the tune of approximately $118,000 which I’m trying to pay down, but to prevent bankruptcy and multiple lawsuits, I need approximately $57,000.00 by the end of February 2019, $6,000.00 of which will immediately give me the opportunity to establish a 501C3 non profit organization and hire a grant writer. I would need the funding to increase to $91,000.00 by the end of July 2019. That $91,000.00 funding gives me the next six months to write God’s Fury and then sell it on Amazon for a nominal cost. The 501C3 nonprofit I establish will NOT be a religious organization. I’m not a prosperity preacher like Kenneth and Gloria Copeland attempting to get a private jet out of all of this, rather I'm antithetical to them and find their behavior appalling and spiritually fraudulent. I'm NOT a far-right Christian Evangelical, and I AM VERY POLITICAL. Salvation comes at a price tag of believing in God (Faith) doing good deeds (Works) and attempting not to be sinful while asking God for forgiveness when you are (Repentance). Helping me financially is considered a "good work," yet it's not a guaranteed entry into the Kingdom of Heaven. Per Luke 8:1-3, Christ survived on the generosity of three Galilean women, and all I want to do is survive at least until July of 2020.
Debt breakdown and discussion:
IRS - Depending on which document that I'm reviewing (paper statements vs. online) I owe between $44,000.00 and $49,000.00 as part of an installment plan since the 2013 Tax Year.
Credit Card - $46,732.00
Automobile Estimated at $7,000.00. My car has been repossessed and is six years old with 85,000 miles. The current value is $17,000.00 and is the amount remaining on the note. $7,000.00 is the estimated payoff after it is auctioned and sold for approximately $10,000.00. To get the car out of repossession would cost $3,200.00 and probably another $3,200.00 to update the insurance and registrations; however, my New York Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) license plates were surrendered, and currently new vehicle licenses are not being issued; therefore; I intend to allow the lender to sell the car. If I were to continue as a Uber and Lyft driver, I would lease a vehicle. Only being able to drive in the mornings and being with John in the afternoons, I would probably earn $600.00 gross for a six-day week with a minimum vehicle lease of approximately $340.00 per week and a weekly fuel cost of approximately $120.00; therefore, I would earn only $140.00 after expenses. I would be better off financially working a minimum wage ($15.00/hr) job; however, it would be part-time, and my debt would never be addressed.
Outstanding Child Support - $2,400.00
Outstanding Medical Bills - $2,569.00
Outstanding Apartment Rent - $1,100.00. Back Rent as of Feb. 1, 2019 - $2,200.00
Future Medical Bills - I’ve budgeted $8,000.00 (which is my medical insurance deductible) for future medical bills. I was diagnosed with three - Stage 1 Basal Cell Carcinomas in December 2018 and I need to have them removed. These are my 3rd, 4th, and 5th. I’m 58 and still need to have a colonoscopy.
Moving Expenses - I've budgeted another $8,000.00 for moving expenses. Our lease expires in June 2019. We’re in a rent-stabilized apartment which is less than 450 square feet and the landlord appears to be attempting a rent increase supported by capital improvements. It’s a two bedroom but my room stores boxes and I’ve been sleeping on the couch for over eighteen months.
I wrote about some of the school abuse that John has endured in my blogs. I thought it had ended; however, some things happened this month which indicated that the scheming continues and it will never end as long as I’m his father and we’re living in New York City. Their behavior has been designed to make our lives miserable because of his disabilities, but mostly in hopes that I would abandon him. I would never give up on one of my children. I don’t abandon people, particularly when they’re disabled. Regardless of my tribulations, I’ve never felt abandoned by God. I am thankful for my health, my children and most of all God’s Blessings. Although I am materially poor, I’m rich in His eternal gifts.
My financial survival is predicated on writing God’s Fury. I don’t want a car. I don’t need a car in New York City, and if my son and I move to LA, I intend to live close enough to LAX where I can rent one if needed for more than one day. California's minimum wage is $11.00 per hour, increasing to $15.00 per hour in 2022, and John should be able to receive equal SSI and Medicaid benefits.
I currently have 4,421 followers on Twitter & 2,446 LinkedIn Connections. If I get donations of $8.30 from each follower, I'll make my first goal of $57,000 by the end of February 2019. An additional $4.95 from each follower, between March & July 2019, gets me to my total goal.
After publishing God’s Fury, I intend to establish a website for Autism resources in Los Angeles County, CA, also as a nonprofit.
In St. Paul's 2nd Letter to the Corinthians, Chap. 8 verse 9, he wrote; "For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor although he was rich, so that by his poverty you might become rich.” The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has two interpretations of which I subscribe to the first which reads; "The dialectic of Jesus’ experience, expressed earlier in terms of life and death (2 Cor 5:15), sin and righteousness (2 Cor 5:21), is now rephrased in terms of poverty and wealth. Many scholars think this is a reference to Jesus’ preexistence with God (his “wealth”) and to his incarnation and death (his “poverty”), and they point to the similarity between this verse and Phil 2:6–8.” The second interpretation reads; “The wealth and poverty as succeeding phases of Jesus’ earthly existence, e.g., his sense of intimacy with God and then the desolation and the feeling of abandonment by God in his death (cf. Mk 15:34)."
In 2Cor.12:6 he continues; "Although if I should wish to boast, I would not be foolish, for I would be telling the truth. But I refrain, so that no one may think more of me than what he sees in me or hears from me 7because of the abundance of the revelations. Therefore, that I might not become too elated, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan, to beat me, to keep me from being too elated. 8Three times I begged the Lord about this, that it might leave me, 9 but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me. 10Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
1Cor.4:6-8 Reward for Fidelity reads; 6 For I am already being poured out like a libation, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith. 8 From now on the crown of righteousness awaits me, which the Lord, the just judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me, but to all who have longed for his appearance.
For the last nine years, I have devoted my entire life to God and my children. I have nothing else to give other than the story about my Faith in God, what I have seen and what I see over the horizon. As Christ said, the Gospel must first be preached to all nations. With enough donations, God’s Fury will eventually be translated to as many languages as possible at a minimal cost or for free. I need six more months to complete my work.
I desperately need to interview authors who have written books about Donald Trump and this administration. I need to layout eschatological scenarios to these journalists and discuss their plausibility. I'm not going to make the claim that I can stop Trump, but I've already proven to myself that I can "knock him off his stride" just by knowing him eschatologically better than ANYONE on this planet. Case in point, July 22, 2018, 9 days after the start of a 1,260 day (the length of a TRIBULATION) countdown to the Coming of the Son of Man, and Trump threatens Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Twitter.
I immediately respond to Trump.
The images in the above tweet and below are from my April 2017 blog titled God's Fury The Book - Full Decoding of The Book of Revelation. It's the final war on earth: A culmination of the last 6th of 7 Seals (Rev.6:12-17), the 6th of 7 Trumpets (Rev.9:13-21), and the 6th of 7 Bowls/Plagues (Rev.16:12-21) leading to the 6th Mass Extinction. This Post-Rapture event combines the armies of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey, supported by Russia, symbolically marching across a dried-up Euphrates River, from Creation to Armageddon. This is prophesied geographically, mathematically and hydrologically in the Book of Revelation
Donald Trump's combative nature and grandiosity combined are his "Achilles Heel". Just like a guy with "bone spurs" trying to run a marathon, Trump can't go the distance with me. He's an insolent bully like the "Impudent King" in Dan.8:23-25 who gets his ass kicked by a pacifist Prince. The psyche of malignant narcissist is "easy pickins". You crush the soul of a toxically-proud Scoundrel (Prov.6:12-15) merely by diminishing him in the eyes of those who so revere him, namely his Christian Evangelical following. His only power over me is my near destitution and his influence over the IRS and Wall St. banks.
If I get back on my feet financially, I'll "eat his lunch." Good always conquers evil.
Someone once criticized me on Pinterest about not reading enough. I read and write about good vs evil and right now, that's all I have time for. My favorite books are the Bible and anything written by John le Carre.
