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.

Q&A: When Did Jesus Become God?

The majority of ‘Christian’ denominations believe that Jesus is God. Some say he became God at the moment of his creation inside Mary, the immaculate conception of God by God. Others believe Jesus became God when he was physically born. Still others think it was at his baptism by John the Baptist. If so, John was one powerful guy! And lastly, some point to his resurrection. As Jesus ‘raised from the dead’ he simultaneously became divine or God. But there is a fifth, much overlooked, point in time when Jesus actually ‘became’ God. Want to know when that was?

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

The Pope and the Ustashi

“In the annals of wartime savagery against the Jews, there was no group as sadistic as the Croatian Ustashi.”

The Vatican aided and abetted the most sadistic murderers of WWII, the Croatian Ustashi and their leader Ante Pavelic. Following Hitler’s invasion of Yugoslavia, the Catholic Croats of the Ustaše rose up against the Jews and Orthodox Christian Serbs. The church saw the situation in Croatia as an opportunity to spread Catholicism in the Balkans. Pope Pius XII personally met with Ante Pavelic, and supported his efforts to eliminate Jews and Orthodox Serbs.

“Like the Nazis, the Ustaše/Ustashi deemed Jews, Romani, and Slavs to be sub-humans. They endorsed the claims from German racial theorists that Croats were not Slavs but a Germanic race. Their genocides against Serbs, against Jews, and against Romani were thus expressions of Nazi racial ideology”

The Vatican’s support for the Catholic Croatian Ustashi was ongoing throughout the Holocaust. It began with a public endorsement by Eugenio Pacelli (Pope Pius XII) in 1939. Before the genocide of Serbs and Jews began, Pacelli colluded with the Archbishop of Croatia, Alojzije Stepinac and with the Croatian fascist leader Ante Pavelic. After the war, the Vatican helped hide Pavelic and his officers of the Ustasan Army. The church then arranged for the fugitives’ safe passage through their ratline to evade justice.

The Egyptian Obelisk – What does it mean?

In ancient Egypt the obelisk symbolized the sun god, Ra. It was said to have been a petrified ray of the Aten, the sundisk. But why is this symbol seen in so many places including London, Washington DC and the Vatican?

Around 30 BCE, Rome seized control of Egypt. The Ancient Romans were awestruck by the obelisks they saw and looted the various temple complexes.

Ancient Doctrines on the Resurrection

The Resurrection from the dead is the concept of coming back to life after death. It is a doctrine of the dead!

Many ancient cultures including Egypt and Babylon obsess over the dead and their funerary practices! They sacrifice to the dead, commune with and seek to for protection and favors.  Their practices include veneration to and worship of the dead.  With repetitious prayers, they cry out to and petition the dead thinking they’ll be heard. Some even cut and paint themselves in remembrance of the dead. Their gods must be out to lunch or asleep because they never respond!

Don’t Give Thanks, Seek God

Thanksgiving is not a Holy Day from God.  It is a National Holiday created for the purpose of celebrating war victories.  The Thanksgiving narrative taught today differs greatly from the original presidential proclamations.   The “first Thanksgiving” in 1621, is portrayed as a three-day harvest celebration between the pilgrims and the Native American Indians.  Most accounts neglect to acknowledge what happened next in history.  The Indians were driven from their lands and massacred.  This was hardly the start of a period to remember with thankfulness.  The “discovery” of America turned into the start of many wars in a new land.

“God is Not the God of the Dead”

Halloween and the Days of the Dead

Halloween (“Holy Eve”), All Soul’s Day, All Saint’s Day and the Day of the Dead will be here shortly. But what are the roots of these special Days of the Dead? When we trace them all the way back to their origin, we find they came from ancient Egypt when the people were caused to worship and make sacrifices to their dead Pharaoh, their “Commander-in-chief”. The name translated ‘Egypt’ in the Bible is actually ‘Mitzraim’ which was one of the sons of Noah’s son, Ham. His other sons were Canaan, Cush and Phut. All these are the root of oppression, false religions upon the earth. Starting from their departure from the Ark of Noah, they all united under Nimrod, Cush’a son.
