I found this just a moment ago... Now is it for real?
If this is for real I guess it just proves that God want's his new Temple built on 'Calvary'.
You just don't get up close and personal with God, it's not healthy unless you and He agree on something.
As a 'Christian' I would say that Jesus qualifies as a 'Red Cow' Substitute. Check out my previous thoughts on red cows. By the way there is an important issue about disecting cows in a particular manner to eat their hindquarters. It's all about subtle energies. I might explain, but not now.
There was a DNA test done on the 'red substance' which was said to be blood that had seeped down onto the mercy seat. I wonder if this matches the DNA sample from the nails in the tomb suspected to be Ciaphus' resting place?
You just got to ask these questions!
Anyway I think the old 'codger' had all three of them. Where did the other one go?
I reckon he had the two hand nails in the tomb. The foot nail he had ground down and mixed with water and drank it like the golden calf. Only He did it slowly. Check for high iron filings in his Autopsy.
Good thing God decided the boiling blood episode with Zechariah was a bit over the top, and decided it was a one off... well people forget these things so maybe He could use that one again. By the way, if this is the Ark, it's getting a bit hot. And glowing a bit. So if you see shimmering lights and smoke soon I wouldn't be surprised.
And no, I wouldn't go in there either!
Actually way to go! God has been very gracious to my Husband and myself. It can't be worse than walking into a Neuclear Reactor which has just gone and blown up, which is what many people are doing in Japan so that the rest of us aren't going to be affected by radiation sickness for generations. Or a firey furnace that my Dad went into to save a whole town. Or turning off a life support machine my Mother had to do for her first Husband, or facing any of the trials of 'modern' psychiatric care, including the medication... or the Plane crashes we walked out of, and the car crashes, and the near death experiences of operations, lack of medical care. I even got threatened by a psychopath with a meat cleaver once, I just thought if he hits me with that it won't matter if he buries it in the front of my skull or the back, so I might as well just turn my back and walk out, so I did!
My Husband is alive by the grace of God, and I am as barmy as a the mad Hatter high on Mercury Poisining and Champagne!
Actually if you know it's truly the Ark of the Covenant, perhaps leaving it where it is and building the temple over it might be a good idea. The knowledge that it is somewhere where it can never be disturbed is very satisfying.
However I might have mentioned that building the Temple first, on the above mentioned spot is a prerequisite for God allowing the Ark to 'come out'. And it's public property no 1. That means although its meant to be kept in Holy Estate rather like the Turin Shroud, it should be accessable as a place of worship for all interested parties. No repeats of the first millenia stuff.
By the way, it can go critical... I think the best thing is to dismantle it. (And never put it back together). Look at what has been acheived in it's absence. Just knowing you have it must be very comforting in a very scary sort of way. Too hot to handle comes to mind...
Not sure it was one of God's best ideas to have something so powerful lying about, but hey, who am I to argue with God, He does always have the masterplan, and the means to execute it.
I love just being able to look up random things on the internet, it makes life soooo... much more interesting.
From another day in Paradise (Nearly).
Well I also had the word dichotic thrown at me. I suppose God does need Dichosis in order to balance himself between Mercy and Justice. However, This is not sufficient. Mercy and Justice need Wisdom and Truth to balance, in order for God to be able to make a decicive statement.
See my Post on Shakespere, and the Quality of Mercy. How does He do that? Very Superhuman if you ask me. And a quadrilateral theology. Never really thought the trinity stuff was adequet, but you have to go along with it if you are a western Christian. At least the Orthodox Christians do an Icon with wisdom at the centre. Anyway this means that God is a 'Five', because He graciously invites us as free willed humanity to join him in His adventures.
So on the basis that this is progressive, a Six is probably something to do with humanity disposing of religion, or not seeing through the veil to Divinity in the Seventh Ark. Then you get an Eight which is eternal being which I guess we aren't quite ready for yet, but we get to become co-heirs and eternal with Christ, and a Nine, which completes the whole of the Creation.
You live to learn!
I like it that God can re-set the program anywhere He wants for anyone He chooses. We all live in a temporal reality that has a unique manifestation for each of us, as we are each a divine spark of imagination. I love God, He is soooo.... inspiring.
