Historical information from a biblical perspective in order to better understand the present and the future.  If we don’t learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it and where there is no vision, the people perish.

Hidden History of Residential Schools

The former Kamloops Residential School operated by the Catholic Church where hundreds of unmarked graves of children were found

“For, behold, the LORD comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

Isaiah 26:21

Graves of children that lay hidden were discovered last year on the property of Catholic residential schools in Canada. Since the discovery, a thousand more unmarked graves have been found in Canada and in the United States. This scandal is nothing new for the Catholic Church. Mass graves have been uncovered at Catholic institutions in Ireland including an orphanage, and the Magdalene Laundries. The spotlight is now turned to the Residential Schools run by the Catholic Church in Canada and the United States.

Which Witch is Which?

Halloween and witches go hand-in-hand. Parents dress their kids up as witches, adults dress up as witches and witch hats, brooms and black cats decorate storefronts and house porches. Nowadays people treat the idea of witches as just silly costumes and customs to ‘celebrate’ Halloween. Halloween and witches are not something to be celebrated.

It wasn’t all that long ago when accusations of being a witch were a deadly matter, but those witch accusers are not all that innocent themselves. What we have here is a case of the ‘pot calling the kettle black’ that has resulted in the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children. Witches, sorcerers and those who practice witchcraft are in fact real people, although their ‘witchcraft’ is not based on reality, just a figment of their imaginations. Ironically, pointy hats are involved, just not the ones you’re thinking of.

Columbus Day and the Doctrine of Discovery

Columbus makes landfall

Columbus Day rolls around every October as a Federal Holiday to remember the ‘discovery’ of America in 1492. As everyone is fully aware, Columbus did not ‘discover’ a barren and unpopulated land. Quite the opposite. There were people, some say 100 million+ people living in North and South America at the time of Columbus’ arrival. But as the ‘Doctrine of Discovery’ makes clear, those people were considered ‘barbarous’ and therefore did not have any claim to the lands they had occupied for millennia.

Recently, Columbus Day has been replaced in many cities and states by Indigenous Peoples Day in response to the relocation and outright genocide of Native Americans. The Papal Bull titled ‘Demarcation Bull Granting Spain Possession of Lands Discovered by Columbus’ dated May 4, 1493 is now referred to as the ‘Doctrine of Discovery‘, a document you should read. This document became the foundation for land rights still incorporated into the Laws of North and South American countries to this day. In the US, the most recent reference to it was in a legal case brought before the Supreme Court in 2005.

The Stone of Jacob

The Stone set in the Throne

A Silent Reminder

Under the British Throne there lies a stone. It is known by many names. It is called the Stone of Destiny, the Stone of Scone, Lia Fàil (“Stone of Fate”), the Tanist Stone, and as clach-na-cinneamhain in Scottish Gaelic. The most important name given to this stone, however, is Jacob’s Pillar, or the Stone of Jacob. It prevails today as the Coronation Stone, upon which the monarchs of Ireland, Scotland, and England are crowned. During the coronation ceremonies, the stone is never mentioned and yet it has been there, hidden beneath the throne. It has sat as a silent reminder of God’s Covenant, not only for the people of the United Kingdom but of all the descendants of Jacob scattered throughout the world.

“Knowledge is Power”

The phrase “knowledge is power” has been attributed to Sir Francis Bacon (1597), an English statesman and philosopher. He is also known as the “father of empiricism.” Empiricism is a theory that states that knowledge comes only or primarily from sensory experience. It emphasizes the role of empirical evidence in the formation of ideas. ‘Empirical evidence’ is information that is acquired by observation or experimentation. The process is a central part of the scientific method. The Latin word for ‘knowledge’ is ‘science’. This is all derived from the wisdom of man. What kind of power can be gained with this method when the data can be so easily manipulated and those who speak the truth are censored and ostracized? They have forgotten the true source of knowledge and power.

2021 – The Year of the Cathars

Seven hundred years ago, in the year 1321, a man identified as the last of the Cathars, was interrogated in the Inquisition and burnt at the stake after he proclaimed a prophecy. That prophecy pertained to the year 2021 when he said, “We shall return in 700 years…” Is it being fulfilled? Take a look…

The Albigensian Crusade (1209–29) was called for by Pope Innocent III against the Cathars, a community in the south of France, whom the Roman Catholic Church had branded heretical. The war pitted the nobility of staunchly Catholic northern France against that of the south.

For all of its violence and destruction, the Albigensian Crusade failed to remove the Cathar heresy from Languedoc. It did, however, provide a solid framework of new secular governors willing to work with the church against the heretics. They were promised indulgences and whatever property or belongings they could confiscate. Through the subsequent efforts of the Inquisition, established by the papacy to try heretics, Catharism was virtually eliminated in Languedoc within a century. Many false accusations were made against them. ‘Cathar’ means purified, same as the ‘Puritans.’ They were also known as the Albigensians for the area of Albi where they lived.

A Bible Story – Abraham to Moses

Many people are confused about who Israel really is or was. Let’s make the crooked straight! Here is the true Bible Story from Abraham to Moses, grandson of Levi.

Many years ago, the name ‘Israel’ was given to Abraham’s grandson, Jacob. His father was Isaac. Abraham and Isaac loved God and kept His Commandments. Jacob, who had the birthright, was saved by God from his brother, Esau, who wanted to kill him. He loved God and learned of Him and this is why the LORD is called the ‘God of Israel’; ‘The Mighty One of Israel’. Because these three men, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, loved God above all, promises were made to them and a Covenant was made with them.

To Comfort My People

The German composer, Handel, opened his famous concert, Messiah, with this song from Scripture. The Prophet Isaiah wrote in chapter 40 a message to “Comfort My people, Israel” to let them know their appointed time has come to deliver them and remove the yoke of those who serve themselves of them.

“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare/appointed time is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she has received of the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.”

Isaiah 40:1-5

A House Divided Against Itself

One hundred and sixty three years ago, on June 16, 1858, the newly chosen candidate for the U.S. Senate, Abraham Lincoln, delivered a speech to his colleagues. His goal was to unite them in their on-going discussions and disagreements about whether to abolish slavery or not. In his effort to get them into an agreement, he said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Now whenever that phrase is heard, it is attributed to President Lincoln, but he was quoting someone else! And that someone was Jesus Christ! What was the original context?
