Christ, teller of riddles and parables

Why did Christ speak parables or riddles everywhere he went? Because this is what God does and has done from the beginning of time, (Matthew 13:34).

Christ was a teller of riddles or parables. If you were able to solve his riddles or parables you were able to get closer to God, to receive a special insight that no one else could understand because they were unwilling to put the effort forth required to get closer to God, to understand God, to solve the riddle.

So God speaks to us in riddles so that we may know the secrets of the Kingdom of God if we solve them, (Luke 8:9-10). So to be a good disciple you must follow God and be a good solver of God's puzzles, riddles and parables.

For the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven is for the disciples and the unsolved parables are for the ones who are spiritually blind and deaf. This means if we are a follower of God we will take these parables serious and solve them. This also means if we are a follower of God we will be able to explain the meaning of the parables to others
(Luke 8:9-10).

For many, some of Christ's last words on the cross was a riddle, here it is in Matthew 27:46 as follows: About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"--which means, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?"

Christ's Last Sermon
Even when our savior was on the cross he was ministering to his lost sheep and trying to show us how to come to God the Father, through him.
This is first and foremost a question we must ask ourselves and solve as a parable for everywhere Christ went he spoke parables -go to my blog by clicking on the link above and go to my sermon called Christ, teller of riddles and parables. So, we ask ourselves why did Christ say this on the cross.

I've heard some preachers say he questioned himself, his very mission. I believe this is ignorance of our preachers at the highest levels. Christ was God in the flesh, the Son. How can he question God the father, who is part of him, the trinity of God.

So, the only other solution is that Christ was saying it because he knew there were some disciples listening (reporters) that were going to eventually write this down in one of the gospels, for mankind to read later. In other words Christ was preaching by telling a parable that if we were to solve it we would be blessed.

So, back to the original question, why? We must all ask why, why did God the father forsake God the son?

Because God loves us so much he gave his only begotten son, that's why. God loves us so, that's why. God could have sent legions of angels down to protect his only son, Jesus, to rescue Jesus, because Jesus was innocent of all charges, Christ had no blemishes, no sins, he was a perfect offering as first fruits of the wave offering to rise again for all of us who follow him. That's the first reason why.

The second reason why, is Christ was fulfilling prophesy. Psalm 22:1 prophesied the Messiah would say this. Here's how it reads:
Psalm22:1 NIV 1 My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning?

For once the riddle is solved it no longer is a riddle but a precious gem, like, after being found the owner thought it was an old rock, but after extensive work dusting, cleaning and chipping it, rounding off sharp edges here and there, then polishing it on a wheel for many hours he discovers suprisingly a huge valuable gemstone was underneath all the dirt and granite. So valuable was this gemstone the owner sold it immediately allowing him to retire and spend everyday with his family having fun.

For everyone who does evil hates to riddles staying in darkness, since, it takes so much time to come into the light and those who do solve the riddles do only good deeds with hard work so they come into the light showing God the deeds they are doing, (John :3:19-21).

Selah (meditate on this).

The land Of Moses

Have you ever wondered how the stories of God were passed down from generation to generation before Moses was writing them down? The first five books of the old testament were by tradition written by Moses. We know Moses only wrote what God breathed through him but my point is that a lot before moses were accurated stories passed from generation to generation ultimately from Adam and Eve.

My point is that people lived much longer back then. This was because there was less disease and people lived long, I mean real long. Theologian theorise that there was no rain before Noah and the earth was enveloped in a canopy of water and mist that came up from the ground. because people were more protected from the sun by this canopy and that it didn't rain as much people lived much longer. Also because man was closer to when God had created them, perfect in the Garden of Eden and all, a place where there were no colds or disease or sin, people, naturally lived longer. We know this by scripture. Here are some facts you might find interesting. Anybody can look up this information themselves, it's all in the book of Genesis.

Adam lived 930 years.

Seth, Adam's son was born 130 years after the "fall" and lived 912 years.

Noah was born 126 years after Adam died and only 14 years after Seth died.

Enosh, Adam's grandson lived 815 years and died only 6 years before Noah was born.

Seth, Adam's son died only 14 years before Noah was born.

Methuselah lived 969 years and lived during the last 56 years of Adam's life. He also lived during the first six hundred years of Noah's life. Methhuselah may have seen judgement of the flood even though he probably knew Adam for 56 years.

Methuselah also watched his father Enoch walk with God the first 300 years of his life, then get
raptured to God. This Enoch was also Noahs great grandfather.

Noah was born when Methuselah was 369 years old.

Noah was around 500 years old when he began building the ark.

Noah was around 600 years old when the floods came.

Noah's father Lamech died 5 years before the flood.

Genesis chapter 5:30 says Noah's father Lamech had many other sons and daughters other than Noah.

This means Noah most likely had brothers and sisters lost in the flood!

When Noah's sons covered his nakedness from the wine they were over one hundred years old.

Noah lived 58 years after Abram (Abraham) was born.

Shem, Noah's son lived 402 years after the flood or 210 years after Abram was born or 35 years after Abraham's death.

Shem, Noah's son lived for 135 years after Issaic was born.

So this is how the trdition of passing God's word from generation to generation was so accurate, finally getting to Moses.

I hope you have enjoyed this!

Perhaps You Will Succeed President Bush, Perhaps You Will Cause Terror

Mystery, Babylon The Great, Mother of Prostitutes, and of the Abominations of The Earth, (Revelation 17:5) is prophesied by all the prophets of God to fall in one hour, (Revelation 18:17) one day from the prophesied enemies of Persia, (according to the CIA book of facts Iran was called by the world until 1938), Medes, ( Bible dictionary says the land of NW tip of Iran, also above that area in the Caucasus mountains NE of oil rich Caspian Sea area where Islamic chechneans are fighting for independence), Ararat, Minni, Ashkenaz, (Armenians, SE Turkey, NE Syria, Northern Iraq & NW Iran, (Jeremiah 51:27). I believe Russia, (Jeremiah 50:9) can also be put into this category of the Medes since Noah's ark, it is only logical that these Medes, (Jeremiah 51:11) and the Russians were immigrating back and forth over the last four thousand years. It is only logical the Medes probably migrated northward to what is called modern day Moscow which is only 250 miles north. Also, when you look at old old archeological busts of the Medes and their facial features they look exactly like the modern day Russians. This is why the Russians are so close to those in Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria. Their close cousins.

So the current situation in the American political scene is bickering. The republicans complain about the democrats. The republicans say "we will succeed, we have a plan, our plan is to set up a free government". Perhaps you will president Bush, perhaps you will.

The democrats complain also, they complain about the republicans. "Their just creating more terrorists" shout the democrats in their high shrill squeeky tone.

And both sides keep showing us the same tired old commercials over and over, never resolving anything. Our borders are wide open, our leaders indifferent to the plights that all of us work day in and day out paying taxes for there overly inflated salaries on both sides of the isles in congress. No one seems to be consulting God's prophets for advice. I'm afraid it doesn't make much sense to have borders so wide open and unprotected.

God spoke thru the prophet Isaiah 47:12 about Babylon the Great which is America. God says Perhaps you will succeed, perhaps you will cause terror.

Iv'e got news for everyone. Look up, for your savior is coming. Look down if unfortunately your king/tyrant is there. God's atonement and redemption is near and the judgement of mankind is coming.

Now here's the strange thing. These seem to be about the same enemies that attack both Israel and Babylon the Great, America. But if you think about it, it is very logical. America would never standby and let a nation like Russia and other Islamic armies attack Israel. We are too close of nations. America is the only nation that has consistantly voted with Israel since at the United Nations since UN recognized nationhood status in 1948. So Russia and these other nations attack both Babylon the Great (America) and Israel with in the same seven year period from the north. It appears scripture says America will be nuked somehow. God will not fight the battle for America for her judgement has already been written and the prophesies already are there. We already know what God does for Israel in this war.
(Ezekiel 38:4-6). Search the scriptures and you will clearly see it is there. First America will fall around 2012 after the rapture. In both attacks it is from the north and in both instances God describes the armies the same way, as a swarming dark cloud of locusts that eat and devoure everything. God stirs up Persia (Iran) from the east, (Isaiah 41:2), notice it also says they use a sword, this sword is Islam.
