Is The World Ready for a Divine Revelation? | A “Warning” to Wake Us Up?

“In that moment, we’re going to see our conscience. You’re going to see everything wrong that you’re doing and the good you’re not doing.”

First off, I want to thank my readers for their attention, awareness and support. I appreciate all of you more than I can say.

Secondly, as some may be aware by now, I am an unabashed follower of Jesus Christ, and will refer to his teachings and versus from the Bible from time to time.

Today, I’d like to take this opportunity to really expand on His teachings of Love and following in His footsteps, so that we can be reminded of the most important aspects of Life and the key attributes to pursue.

Conscious Awakening

Embellishments have been added for emphasis:

“Jesus spoke of the need to believe in God, in God’s order, in other people, and in love and understanding among people. He emphasized the need to believe in the good, but not only to believe but to do good deeds and live accordingly. Words themselves or declarations in accordance with the enumerated nonsense do not mean anything without deeds. One should do good deeds and live according to these principles. One should live in love and harmony with other people, and spread positive energy through words and deeds. He said that all people are equal before God and should act accordingly. He kept repeating that only faith in God, faith in love among people, living by these principles, doing good deeds, and showing love to others bring reward at the end of life. All who adhere to these principles will be rewarded for their good deeds, and especially those who still in this life experience the knowledge of connection with God. He has mentioned many times that life is eternal and that the position of every man after death depends on the behavior and deeds done in this life.

He talked about all people being connected to God, they just need to experience the knowledge of it. Everyone will experience it, but only at the moment of death. Those who come to this realization while they are still alive are extremely lucky, but in order to reach this realization they must deserve it with their faith, effort and deeds.

Marijan H STE

Now, I want to bring special attention to Marijan’s testimony in which he states that “Everyone will experience” being connected to God. He does mention that this only happens at the moment of death, but then adds that there are some that will realize this when they are still alive.

This hits home for me since there have been times where I will be hit with a brief flash of insight that I know for a fact did not come from me, but rather… outside of me, but within me at the same time – if that makes sense.

My own personal knowledge at that time did not match with what I was being shown. My mentality at that time was one of bitterness, anger and frustration. This “insight” quite literally showed me a different way. And that was through love, patience and understanding.

Again, I have to reiterate, this insight did not come from me. I cannot take the credit. Some other being was gently guiding me in the proper action and emotions to take.

Therefore, I cannot simply disregard people’s personal testimonies when it comes to accounts like these. While they are anecdotal, my own personal experiences is what led me into researching NDE’s and STE’s to begin with. And I am not saying that all NDE’s/STE’s are real – discernment should still be used and a reasonable amount of skepticism, but one should also not just dismiss other’s experiences but rather keep an open mind that it is a possibility.

Now, to further expand on Marijan’s experience, I want to mention a prophetic “warning”/vision that allegedly appeared to 4 young children in Garabandal, Spain of the Virgin Mary giving them signs and predictions of what is to come.

The following list are the warnings that Conchita Gonzales says she was given during these visions:

The “Warning”

– The Warning is a thing that comes directly from God and will be visible throughout the entire world in whatever place anyone might be.

– The Warning will be like a revelation of our sins – and it will be seen and experienced equally by believers and non-believers and people of any religion whatsoever.

– The Warning is like a purification for the Miracle.

– And it is a sort of a catastrophe. It will make us think of the dead, that is, we would prefer to be dead rather than to experience the Warning.

– The Warning is something supernatural and will not be explained by science.

– lt will be seen and felt.

– The Warning will be a correction of the conscience of the world.

– For those who do not know Christ, they will believe it is a Warning from God.

– The most important thing about that day is that everyone in the whole world will see a sign, a grace, or a punishment within themselves, in other words, a Warning.

– They will find themselves all alone in the world no matter where they are at the time, alone with their conscience right before God.

– They will then see all their sins and what their sins have caused.

– We will all feel it differently because it will depend on our conscience. The Warning will be very personal, therefore, we will all react differently to it.

– The most important thing will be to recognize our own sins and the bad consequences of them.

– Your experience of the Warning will be different from mine because your sins are different from mine.

– This will be a Warning to see what you have done with your sins.

– It will be like a purification before the Miracle to see if with the Warning and Miracle we will be converted.

– The Virgin told me that before the Miracle, God will be sending us a Warning so as to purify us or prepare us to see the Miracle and in this way we may draw enough grace to change our lives toward God.

– It is a phenomenon which will be seen and felt in all the world and everywhere; I have always given as an example that of two stars that collide.

– This phenomenon will not cause physical damage, but it will horrify us because at that very moment we will see our souls and the harm we have done.

– It will be as though we were in agony but we will not die by its effects but perhaps we will die of fright or shock to see ourselves.

– No one will have doubts of it being from God, and of its not being human.

– I who know what it is, am very much afraid of that day.The Virgin told us that the Warning and Miracle will be the last warnings or public manifestations that God will give us. This is why I believe that after them we will be near the end of time.

– To me it’s like two stars that crash and make a lot of noise and a lot of light but they don’t fall down.

– It’s something that’s not going to hurt us but we’re going to see it.

– In that moment, we’re going to see our conscience. You’re going to see everything wrong that you’re doing and the good you’re not doing.

Fascinatingly, her warnings seem to be extremely similar to that of what many near death experiencers claim is what happened to them.

They have a life review in which they see the actions and harm, (and/or good), that they have put out onto the world and the consequences/effects that it has caused. Many people have reported that they could feel the devastation that their actions have caused to other people – the amount of hurt and pain that they inflicted, even if they did it unknowingly. And they could also see how it affects others, because that action stays with who received it, and they (again, even if unknowingly) send that energy out onto others as well, which perpetuates the hurtful cycle.

Likewise, they could feel the amount of love and compassion that they have sent out into the world; how even the smallest act of kindness was rejoiced and praised by heavenly/divine beings and how it reverberated throughout the whole entire world. A chain reaction – carrying on the good, kind deeds so that others can feel it and send it forward also.

During your experience, did you gain information about life’s difficulties, challenges and hardships?

“Yes I experienced the difficulties and hardships of the behavior I was experecing in the past and all the people that I hurt thatwere still in some pain as a direct result of my actions.”

Frances Z NDE

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?

“Everything about myself or others I always felt united and never conflicted with nature. I feel gratitude deeply. I was able to feel everything from the other person’s emotions. It changes you greatly. I am different in how I treat others. I have always treated others with respect, and thought I was very good to most people. I discovered that other people can accept things very differently, even though it was presented well, and with respect.”

Yves F NDE

Did scenes from your past come back to you?

“My past flashed before me, out of my control I learned tens of thousands of things I viewed them as they happened through a tv like viewer. you can learn anything you want you must just think the question to see it as it happened, the end of the world, any wars, plagues the birth of christ any thing you can think of. my life review was viewed the same way. one important thing that I will always rember after my life review is that (every thing you thought that mattered doesnt and the only thing that does matter is how you treat other people).”

Ron A NDE

Many times, that form of self-reflection is lost on us. We have no idea how other people feel, only ourselves, so a lot of people don’t contemplate on the potential effects that their actions are causing others. I myself am still learning how my actions affect others, and I work on trying to be more aware and cognitive of this fact.

But then there will be those who don’t consider these types of things at all. And while I cannot say that my “life review”/”warning” will be squeaky clean – because I am admittedly apprehensive of what God/my own soul will show me, I welcome this warning with all my heart, because I want to learn how to be better. And I want others to receive that enlightenment of how their actions/sins affect others as well.

And what’s interesting to me, is that I have often thought, “Why do people have to die, or be near death, to gain that insight/awareness? And why do some people have a spiritually transformative experience that changes their lives, while others don’t? Some people don’t seem to experience anything supernatural. Why? If God can send divine inspiration and enlightenment to some people, then certainly He can do so to everyone. So why doesn’t He?”

Now, I will not get into the “free-will” debate, because I don’t have enough wisdom to comment much on this, but only to say that our worldly knowledge is extremely limited, and cannot even begin to comprehend the Truth of what’s held in our consciousness and connection to God. So this matter I will leave to readers to ponder about.

But I will mention that God is sovereign, and while I, at one time, denounced God and rebuked Him, I am beyond grateful that He has brought me back from the brink of darkness and hatred, and has opened my eyes to His Love and Mercy.

And so I have questioned why some people seem to have profound near death/spiritual experiences, while others don’t. And I have considered that we all do, indeed, have incredible, unexplainable experiences throughout our lives; but only some pay attention and realize it, while others remain under the impression that it was a coincidence or a fluke.

And I have prayed, constantly, every day, that God sends us all a sign that will open our eyes, a conscious awakening, that we can see the error of our ways and the true path that will lead to our salvation. While many of us know that is in following Jesus Christ – not just believing that Christ died on the cross – so many of us don’t realize this. So divine intervention would be a wonderful way to approach this.

Again, I have prayed about this for years, before I even heard about the Garabandal visions. And it wasn’t until recently that I found about these prophetic warnings. And so I can only hope and pray that this is true. I, of course, don’t know about the legitimacy of these claims, but I know that God has the power to do this, and it will lead to putting an end to all of the pain and suffering, anger and hatred, division and chaos that is trying to take over.

In the meantime, the best thing we can do to honor God and Jesus Christ, is to live as lovingly and inspired by His commandments as much as possible.

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” – Mark 12:30-31

I want to thank you all again for your readership, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Much love, and God bless.

As More People “Wake Up”, We Have Been Given Warning Signs of What’s to Come – They All Point to One Thing

Whether we’re in the “end days” or not, we need to prepare ourselves and strengthen our faith in God/Jesus Christ.

While many people are questioning the “COVID” agenda and the vaccine narrative, myself being one of them, since it is one of the biggest corruption scandals and crimes against humanity, I also focus on other outlets that we need to be focused on in order to realize our true nature.

Many people may consider these topics as “woo” or “conspiracy theories”. But as we’ve seen the last few years, what is labeled as “conspiracy theories” end up being proven TRUE in the long run. Not every topic, of course, but a fair amount of them, especially when it involves government intrigue. (Which the majority of them do…)

As these last couple of years has shown us, and as more and more people become awake to the many lies that have been fed to us – while digging into biblical proportions (quite literally) found a source of interesting information that seems to be predicting exactly where we’re heading.

I have covered this young gentleman before, but wanted to directly show the many eerie topics he spoke about, compared to what we’re seeing today. The quotes below are from Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov, as told by his mother and translations from Russian to English.

Keep in mind, he passed away in 1993, at the young age of 10, and since then there have been documentaries and books speaking about these events as early as 2006, if not earlier.

“Injected” (marked) people will have more benefits

“Those who have implanted a chip do not stand in queues, are the first to the plane at the airport and come up with other benefits.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

CNN’s Leana Wen: The Unvaccinated Should Not Be Allowed To Leave Their Homes (2021)

“You have the option to not get vaccinated if you want,” said the doctor. “But then you can’t go out in public.”

(This is not to say that the vaccinated have an implanted chip, but only to show where we’re heading in terms of segregation and division if one doesn’t agree to getting injected with foreign substances at the demand of “health”/political reasons.)

“Rapid Response Brigades” to address dissidents

“Vyacheslav said that instead of the army in Russia they will create rapid response brigades. They will “extinguish” any manifestation of human discontent with their rapid appearance.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

A Kremlin youth group says it will field ‘brigades’ to push back against opposition rallies (2018)

“Molodaya Gvardiya” (Youth Guard), a wing of the ruling political party United Russia, says it will create rapid-response “brigades” in the country’s biggest cities and other areas where the party has performed poorly.

Between 100 and 200 activists would comprise these groups, which would be expected to organize public demonstrations within a few hours “on various issues” — mainly with the aim of confronting protests by the anti-Kremlin opposition.”

Spiritualism and occultic/demonic infiltration

“Almost all people will be engaged in spiritualism. People will clearly hear demons and will live on their prompting.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

A Not So Secret Conspiracy: The Occult is Everywhere (2021)

“The occult has infiltrated almost every aspect of society and the culture and most people don’t even realize it. From the highest level of global organizations to your next-door neighbor, almost no one is immune (so to speak) from the effects of the occult, in one form or the other.”

“From the COVID miracle potion, to Bill Gates and leaders of the United Nations who actively engage satanism and Gnostic spirituality, to your next door neighbor Sally who plays with tarot cards while her daughter attends weekly Yoga class, the occult is everywhere. The devil feeds off of all of it.”

Son accused of killing mom says he was possessed by ‘demons and Hitler,’ authorities say (2018)

“Steiss, who repeatedly asked to be locked up, then told police he was “possessed by demons and Hitler,” according to the affidavit.

WANE-TV reported that a source confirmed Steiss suffered from depression and bipolar disorder. The source told the station that Steiss complained of hearing voices in his head, had seizures and a temper.”

Changes being made to the church Creeds

” – when they change the creed”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

“I believe in Pope Francis…”: Bizarre Pseudo-Creed recited at Mexican Parish (2020)

” I believe in Pope Francis as the legitimate Successor of the Apostle Peter. I believe that the Holy Ghost speaks to the Church through him. I believe that he guides the Catholic Church as a true Pastor. I believe that he is diligently concerned with all of humanity, because we are all brothers and sons of God. I believe in his magisterium, which is in perfect harmony with the faith and morals of the Church. I believe that his personal opinions reflect the evangelical attitude of the believers in Christ. I reject all offenses, aspersions, and insults towards his person. As for those who reject his authority, I affirm that they are in ecclesiastical error as much as in error of communion.

We ask all of this of Thee, O Lord, through Jesus Christ Our Lord.”

(While it is to be noted that the original Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed had been recited at its proper place, and the additional creed was spoken at the end, this example still signifies where the churches are heading (complete trust in man…). And we can’t discount other changes that are being made. Take the following for example):

United Methodists Remove ‘Father’ from Apostle’s Creed to Be More Gender Inclusive to God
(2018)

“United Methodists in the Minnesota Conference decided that referring to God as “Father” wasn’t inclusive enough for the 21st century United Methodist Church. At the conference, held May 30 through June 1, conference organizers omitted reference to God the Father. Instead, they changed the phrase “God the Father Almighty” to “God the Creator Almighty.” The creed passed out to attendees also removed the phrase, “Jesus Christ, His only Son” to “Jesus Christ, God’s only Son.”

Some priests will stay true to God

” – some temples will still serve according to the old one. Not all priests will betray God”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

The Viganò Tapes | Dr. Robert Moynihan’s Interview with Archbishop Viganò (2021)

” – not only do the ecclesiastical authorities not condemn in the least the abuse of power by those who govern public affairs, but they support them in this wicked plan and go so far as to condemn those who do not accept being subjected to inoculation with an experimental gene serum with unknown side-effects that does not impart any immunity from the virus – to say nothing of the moral implications related to the presence of genetic material derived from aborted fetuses, which for a Catholic is itself a more-than-sufficient reason to refuse the vaccine.” – Carlo Vigano

TRUE FAITH: Canadian pastor Artur Pawlowski refuses to obey fascist Canada’s gag order, says he’s “prepared to go to prison” (2021)

“Pawlowski was recently ordered by Judge Adam Germain to start preaching Chinese Virus propaganda to his congregation as punishment for previous lockdown violations. Pawlowski was also fined $23,000 and told he would have to serve 18 months of probation for his Fauci Flu “crimes.”

Being a principled man of faith, Pawlowski of course rejected the court’s order that he lie to his flock.”

Ice that doesn’t melt

” – crystals would fall from the sky. They are brought by rockets when they fly from space to the ground. If they fall on a person, then there will be a bunch of ice and blood. But such ice will not melt.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THEY DRILLED INTO AN ICE WALL NEAR THE FIRMAMENT IN THE 60s? (2020)

“The rest of the time, which was most of the time, the scientists were studying something they called “sky ice”.

“And here’s the really weird part. It didn’t melt into water. When it got warm, because we had it inside, it just started to shrink. It got smaller and smaller, but my glove never got wet. And there was no water on the floor, the stuff just turned into thin air when it got warm and vaporized.”

“So I asked my friend where they get the “sky ice” from and he said it comes from “the wall”.

“He said it was the biggest natural structure in the world.”

(While this testimony hasn’t been verified, it does talk about the governmental/national treaties put in place dealing with Antarctica and the secrecy surrounding the projects like Operation Fishbowl and the formation of NASA, to the rockets aimed at… well, “the wall”.)

Stocked underground bunkers while famine/hunger strikes the world

“People will be allowed to live well, but then they will hide the products underground and hunger will begin.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

ELITE UNDERGROUND BUNKERS – Why Are So Many Of The Super Wealthy Preparing Bug Out Locations? World’s largest Underground City (2016)

“It is believed to be large enough to house 60,000 persons, with a special air filtration system designed to withstand a , chemical or biological . Enough food and water is believed to be stored at the site to sustain the entire underground population for months on end”

“A lot of ultra-rich people are quietly preparing to “bug out” when the time comes. They are buying survival properties, they are buying farms in far away countries and they are buying deep underground bunkers. In fact, a prominent insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland says that “very powerful people are telling us they’re scared” and he shocked his audience when he revealed that he knows “hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand.”

Two large buildings in America will be blown up

“In America, two large houses will be blown up (the World Trade Center?)”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Lying Mainstream Media Ignore Expert New 9/11 WTC7 Demolition Report (2001 / 2020)

“The discovery by Professor Niels Harrit and colleagues of active thermitic explosive material in dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center catastrophe provided chemical physics-based evidence for the destruction of the Twin Tower buildings by nanoparticle thermite-based explosive demolition”

(Of course we all know the towers fell in 2001, although I also used the date 2020 because of the date of the article in question. And admitting that I hold biased views against the “official narrative” of the September 11 attacks, I could not in good conscience link to an article ascribing to those falsities.)

“The seal will glow green, like an electronic scoreboard”

“The seal will be in the form of a tattoo, it will be applied by rays, some isotopes, three sixes. God will not forgive anyone who has accepted the seal. At first, the seal will not be visible, but then it will glow green like an electronic scoreboard.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Ultrathin tattoo-like QLEDs laminated on human arm
shows the QLEDs under dark conditions

(This is another incidence in which to show what is possible with today’s technology, but does not necessarily mean that the “seal” will look exactly like this. Only to demonstrate that these “glowing tattoos” are real attempts by the scientific/government community.)

“In those days, men will seek death and will not find it.”

“They will become like immortals. If such a person because of a terrible life wants to commit suicide, accelerates in a car and crashes somewhere, then scattered to pieces with the car, he is like a monster in a horror movie will gather in a heap and come to life.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Rob Skiba Predicted Mind Control Parasites “Liver Fluke” in Relation to Vaccines – “Liver Fluke” Studies Currently Being Conducted Using CRISPR Technology (2021)

” – it’s immortal; in a lab setting, at least. It continuously produces its own stem cells, it never stops and it can make itself innumerable times; you can chop it up into little bits, put it in a petri dish – it forms itself again, and again, and again. It can, you know, chop one of its tentacles off, it makes a new one. It’s over and over.” – Dr. Carrie Madej

(There have been reports of a parasite named “hydra vulgaris” allegedly being found in the COVID vaccines. There have also been studies published at the NCBI/NIH website to prove that this “immortal” organism is being tested to use for vaccine development. Could the integration with this parasite into our human body, along with the combination of mRNA/CRISPR technology, modify human beings to the point that we won’t be able to die?)

Targeted weaponry against certain nationalities (or on humanity in general…)

“Americans will use a new psychological weapon against the Chinese that affects only this race, and drive them away, but the effect of these weapons will be such that even in China they can never be normal. Slavochka said that the Chinese who fell under the influence of these weapons at home will try to get into a dark place and will constantly tremble with horror.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

US funds: Pouring Acid Into Monkeys’ Brains & Then Terrorizing Them (2021)

“Candace Owens tweeted, “Reading through Fauci’s experiments and the one I find most alarming is the use of an acid to destroy a region of monkeys’ brains to magnify terror. They then simulated images of spiders and tormented them with fear. Human DNA is 97% identical to apes. Why fund that research?”

(In addition to all of the horrific experimentation on animal and human life, we also need to keep in mind the Human Genome Project and the DNA collection agenda that in all plausibility has a lot to do with these types of projects as well. Collecting DNA in order to target a specific group? That would most definitely not be unheard of from a biological/chemical warfare point of view.)

Scientists will create a device to see demons

“Scientists will not all believe the miracles and this will make of such a device that will allow them among people to recognize the so-called “aliens”, that is, incarnated demons”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Why Is Dicyanin Dye Illegal? (2010)

“Before the 1940’s, private researchers were able to freely use Dicyanin Dye. During this same time frame the U.S Government banned any use with the dye.

In 2010, very briefly the public was able to buy Dicyanin Dye but was quickly banned once again.”

“…A friend of mine and four of his friends experimented with crystalline structures a year or two ago (mid-1980’s – Branton), and they figured out how to cut them along certain planes so they could actually see the aura or energy field around people. That’s when they discovered that all people aren’t ‘people’, or the people they thought they were. It appears that some E.T. humanoids have a dark blue ovoid aura.”

(Even though the dicyanin glasses above were initially created in the early 1900’s and then subsequently banned in later years, the notion that scientists would not continue to investigate the different spectrums and viewing capabilities, with or without dicyanin, would be impractical.)

Craters and sinkholes increasing in number

“There are huge voids in the ground and with a warming climate, the earth will fall into these places”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

“In just over a week since a massive sinkhole opened up in Puebla, Mexico — and three days since another cavern appeared in Jiangxi, China — the shocking phenomenon has turned up again in Israel.”

Massive Sinkholes Swallow the Shrinking Dead Sea – More Than 6,000 Just in Israel and Craters Forming Daily (2012 / 2019)

“There are now over 6,000 sinkholes around the Dead Sea on the Israeli side. This compares to 40 in 1990, with the first sinkhole appearing in the 1980s.

The Dead Sea is drying up at an incredible rate leaving huge chasms of empty space in its wake.

These enormous craters appear in the form of large, devastating sinkholes – some as deep as eight-story buildings – and are increasing in number throughout the region.”

England will sink, and the inhabitants will be evacuated to Russia

“England will sink and the British are evacuated to Russia, and the Government of England knows this, but they cannot believe it.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

London ‘among cities sinking into the sea’ (2018)

“London is among the cities sinking into the oceans as climate change raises global sea levels.

Christian Aid says London is sinking partly due to glaciers in Scotland melting, resulting in these regions literally rising as the weight moves off them. This has resulted in London and the south of England sinking downwards in a see-saw motion, providing one factor as to why the Thames Barrier is having to be used increasingly often.”

Worm-like organisms that emit hydrogen sulfide in the Black Sea

” – there would be a giant explosion on the Black Sea, since a small layer of water remained on the sea, and under a layer of water on the bottom of the sea some organisms climb, such as worms, of which there are a lot and they emit hydrogen sulfide.” – Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Hydrogen Sulfide in the Black Sea (2007)

“Hydrogen sulfide production in the water column by sulfate-reducing bacteria is the main source of dissolved sulfide, and sulfate reduction is the dominant process of organic matter mineralization in the Black Sea anoxic zone.”

What is Hydrogen Sulfide and Why is it a Lethal Hazard?

“Hydrogen sulfide, or H2S, is a colorless, flammable gas that is toxic at extremely low concentrations.

Hydrogen sulfide forms as a result of microbes breaking down organic material in areas with little or no oxygen. This gas can often be found in natural sources where elemental sulfur comes into contact with organic materials. For instance, it can be found in volcanic gases, natural gas, and some well water and hot springs.”

While we cannot discount that this has been a propped up propaganda, the uncannily specific subject matter, of which not many of his age would even be interested in – nor likely, his mother – lends a type of interesting credence to this material. And while many sites attempt to debunk the legitimacy of this young prophet, we see the same ridiculing and smear campaigns happening to anyone who goes against the mainstream narrative.

And of course there are theories that the child may have just had lucky guesses or discussed topics that coincidentally came true (or perhaps “they” deliberately took certain prophecies to make them come true), or perhaps he was just a really well-educated child for his age, or his mother embellished stories of her son for notoriety or some such other reason (although those closest to this family would know for sure)… but that still doesn’t detract from the unfolding of the accuracy in these certain events that, in my opinion, deserves a deeper look. 

"‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams."
Acts 2:17

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Genesis 15: God’s Covenant with Abram

Earnest Examination

This series is presented as an honest, sincere look into the study of the Bible with my own personal theories, opinions, comments and that of others’ insights and research into what the verses could mean. I cannot claim one way or another that everything that I am stating is fact and the true meaning of what is meant in these verses.

To lay it out in a way that I can manage, I have highlighted the texts of verses that I either don’t understand or have a comment or question about in yellow. And the comments I’ve left beneath it will be of a smaller font and using brown text.

I would love it if you’d join me in this journey and if you have any insights and/or knowledge of these chapters/verses etc., please feel free to share with me and the other readers. Any chance to get a clearer understanding of the Bible and Jesus Christ would be welcomed with open arms.

Version used is from (KJV) Genesis 15

1 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
I want to point out the small phrase, “in a vision”. What does this mean, exactly? “In a vision” doesn’t necessarily imply “in a dream”. Was Abram fully awake during this vision? Was he daydreaming? Prophesying? Actually dreaming? Was it a vision in a dream? And how did Abram know that this vision was from the Lord? Did he test this vision? Or just accept it as coming from the Lord? I only pursue this question because we are always told to test spirits, test visions, discern… so that we may not be led astray. Am I implying that Abram possibly was seeing visions from a different entity? Well, I’m not exactly implying anything, but I am attempting to shed light on this matter that to be discerning means to question and search for the Truth, however uncomfortable it may be. And it is my effort to find out if Abram KNEW, from every fiber of his being, if this vision truly came from God or was he being deceived.
2 But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?”
…I also wonder about bloodlines, which is clearly what is meant in this verse. Abram is concerned about preserving his bloodline… although, if we take the creation account to heart, then we are all born of Adam and Eve – again, if there’s nothing more to this account – and so the specific pursuit to carry on one’s own bloodline is a fascinating subject to me. Even back then there was so much separation and animosity, quite possibly due to the separation at the Tower of Babel (although even within Cain and Abel’s own family there was already strife and conflict) created families who considered themselves separate from everyone else. It’s interesting and makes me wonder if there’s something more to this history than what most of us were/are led to believe.
3 Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!”
How important is “blood”? Is it about the blood? The DNA? The questions I’m wondering is, why was Abram chosen to be the “people of God”? I haven’t been able to study the Talmud, the Q’uran, Kabbalah, Testament of Abraham, the Ugaritic texts, etc. and it is something that I definitely want to look into in order to get a broader picture of who Abraham is and his descendants. Since Abraham is widely believed to be the line of the C”hosen Ones”, I feel it’s important to find out how, why, for what purpose, etc., etc.
According to this verse, no other bloodline is going to cut it. His adopted son does not suffice. So why is Abraham’s line so important? Why was he chosen?

4 And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.”
5 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”
6 And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.
7 Then He said to him, “I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.”
8 And he said, “Lord God, how shall I know that I will inherit it?”

This is interesting as well, because while the Lord God promised Abram the whole world, basically, Jesus Christ’s teachings is to “come out of this world” and inherit the kingdom of God (Heaven). So I find the stark contrast between these two teachings as very intriguing and worth further consideration.
9 So He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.”
10 Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two.

These verses confuse me even more. So the Lord God told Abram to bring Him all of these animals, with no further context to it, but then in the very next verse Abram takes it upon himself to cut them in half and place each piece opposite the other. …Am I missing something here? Is this some kind of ritualistic sacrifice? How does Abram come to the conclusion that this is the act that he must do when God told him to bring those animals to Him? Is it the act of bringing death upon the animals is symbolic of bringing the animals to God? And even if so, why do it in such a specific manner as to cut them in half? And why not the birds? Do these questions get answered in other texts or further verses/chapters of the Bible? This just seems very strange to me and screams of ritualistic sacrifice. Perhaps akin to witchcraft.
Is that blasphemous? Or am I just stating a well-earned speculation that Abram’s actions may be paganistic? It is not my intention to condemn or blaspheme the word of God, but only to raise much needed questions and consideration of the texts and belief structures that it proposes. I am a believer in God and Jesus Christ, and the pursuit of Truth. “Truth” does not mean to blindly listen to certain texts/words/teachings of others, but to sincerely study and learn our surroundings and pray for insight so that we may not be led astray. That is what I am attempting to do.

11 And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.
12 Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him.
…Hm… this lends further credence that the act that Abram performed may have been ritualistic in nature. What is this “horror and great darkness” that fell upon him? Demonic, perhaps?
Not to mention, in some other translations of this verse, they don’t say “a deep sleep” fell upon Abram:

“12 And when the sun was gone down, dread felled on Abram, and a great hideousness and dark assailed him. (And as the sun went down, fear fell upon Abram, and a great dark hideousness assailed him.)”Wycliffe Bible

Sometimes I refer back to the Wycliffe version, since it seems to be the earliest English translation there is, and in his version it does not say that Abram fell into a deep sleep, but rather that dread and fear fell upon him. And the term “assail”, at least in today’s time, implies that he was attacked by this “great dark hideousness”.
13 Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years.
14 And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.

So I’m trying to understand the transition of these past few verses. I can infer a few speculations (but I suppose ‘speculations’ they will remain):

1. The horror and great darkness that befell Abram was the entity that has been speaking to Abram as the word of the Lord. Assailing Abram with his power? His authority? Physically assaulting Abram? Maybe… spiritually?
2. The horror and great darkness was an inclination, a gut feeling, that something bad will happen – follow that up with the Lord saying that his descendants will be in trouble for a few years may have given him this fear/dread. Certainly very likely. Although it doesn’t seem to explain the term “assailed” that was originally used as the translation.
3. Perhaps because of the Lord gifting Abram and his descendants with the land and various possessions, it made the dark entities jealous and wrathful – therefore the darkness is the acknowledgement that Abram’s descendants will go through some hardships in order to rise above these dark entities and inherit the land.

Now, this brings me again to the land and the possessions. I can’t help but keep going back to Jesus Christ’s teachings that worldly possessions mean NOTHING in the eyes of the Lord. In fact, he teaches that those who have riches and wealth and all these possessions are on the WRONG PATH to Heaven. Yet in these biblical teachings, Abram has been chosen to inherit the land and the riches in them. …Am I the only one who doesn’t quite understand this dichotomy? But then I am also reminded of the verse in Matthew 5 where it says that the meek shall inherit the Earth. So here we have Abram and his descendants, being promised inherited land and wealth/possessions, and then here’s Jesus saying that the meek will inherit the land. Are Abram and his descendants meek? Did Jesus offer up sacrifices to God to earn His good graces? Am I speaking out of turn and just not understanding the symbolic or universal workings of the world?

15 Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age.
16 But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”
17 And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces.
More interesting implications here, that seem to point to Abram performing a ritualistic spell and/or sacrifice. I know I may get pushback against this speculation, but again, it is NOT to offend anyone. It is only to offer up what an honest look into these verses may provoke in someone who hasn’t studied the Bible and other texts extensively and who is on a sincere path to understanding the Bible and its teachings. From an unbiased and subjective look into these verses, it seems as if Abram is performing witchcraft. Perhaps that is just how people worshipped back in those days, and I can somewhat understand that. And perhaps that is why Jesus Christ came to begin with, to show us that we no longer (or have ever) need to perform these rituals and instead look to being kind and loving to one another and believe in Him to have everlasting life. Of course, that doesn’t explain why this Lord at this time asked to have certain animals brought to him, and doesn’t explain how Abram knew how to set up this altar of sorts.
And speaking of this altar, where did this “smoking oven” and the “burning torch” come from? And it just so happened to ceremoniously pass in between the cut pieces of the animals… It seems quite obvious that this was on purpose and that Abram knew to do this. But how? Who taught him to offer up these animals to the Lord in this manner? And what is the smoking oven that just allegedly appeared out of nowhere? It does not do my peace of mind well to make this connection to Moloch, a terrible deity who is often portrayed as having a furnace or oven for a stomach in which to throw sacrifices into – sacrifices that tragically included (includes?) babies/children. Take another translation from Wycliffe, for example:


“17 Therefore when the sun was gone down, a dark mist was made, and a furnace smoking appeared, and a lamp of fire, and (it) passed through those partings. (And when the sun had gone down, a dark mist came, and a smoking furnace appeared, and a lamp of fire which passed between the pieces of the animals.)”

This is extremely suspicious to me. And I feel rather at odds because as far as I’ve researched, I have not come across a lot of sources making this connection. Am I completely in the wrong here? Why am I having this red flag when it comes to this sacrificial act and the “dark mist” and oven/furnace that just so happened to appear (manifest?) out of nowhere to “pass (collect?)” these sacrifices? I am actually quite perplexed that I don’t see many references to this as even being a possibility. I can’t be the only one who finds these texts suspicious…
18 On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—
19 the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites,
20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim,
21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”

I know sometimes it would seem as if I’m questioning the veracity of the Bible’s origins, and while that may be true in some sense, it is not meant to presume, condemn, or ridicule, and certainly not meant to certify the propositions I set forth. And I definitely don’t mean to insult or offend anyone, especially not God. It is only to get a clearer understanding of the meanings of the Bible, and the possibility that during so many transitions and translation efforts, and perhaps intentional/unintentional mishandling and misinterpretations, that the Truth along the way may have been concealed more than we’d like.

And as usual, I want to reiterate that some of my thoughts and theories may be way off base, and I also research some other things on the side as well to try and get a broader understanding of what I’m reading, so please bear with me, or, even better, if you have insights that bring more light to these verses, please let me know.

I enjoy bouncing off theories and theology off of each other and love to hear other people’s perspectives on things. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
