WCC Update: Once again, we received an email from WCC and, once again, it was blank. It might be interesting to learn why almost every other email, each with a different subject line, is sent to RDK blank. But, we are not curious enough to visit its website to leave them a message asking why. "Subject: WCC WEEKLY: Pentecost; Brazil: dictatorship legacy; Just peace; Visits to Germany & Cuba"
Heat Bursts: submitted by Sister María, Oregon
Jun 10, 11:40 am ET; After-midnight ‘heat burst’ surprises Kansans, By Liz Goodwin
—— Wichita, Kan., residents are still reeling from a bizarre weather system that spiked temperatures 20 degrees in a matter of minutes in the early hours of Thursday morning.
—— KSN Channel 3's meteorologist JD Rudd explained the causes of the rare nighttime
temperature spike, known as a "heat burst." First, winds gusted up to 69 miles per hour at around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, when temperatures were still in the 80s. At 12:22 a.m., temperatures were at 85 degrees in the region. Less than 20 minutes later, the temperature spiked to 102 degrees, and winds continued to gust at about 50 miles per hour. By 3:00 a.m., the temperatures had again fallen and the winds stopped.
—— Heat bursts are a very rare phenomenon, meteorologists told The Wichita Eagle.
They're caused by storms "collapsing" onto the strong winds that are keeping them up. When rain falls onto very dry air, the air begins to drop, and as the air mass drops it gets hotter. When the air hits the ground it rapidly spreads out, causing gusting winds.
—— "You have to have perfect conditions ... in order to get these things," National
Weather Service meteorologist Chance Hayes told the paper. The Wichita area received almost no rainfall in May, so conditions were certainly dry enough for a heat burst.
—— RDK Observation: Over the last 20 years of Laodicea we have noticed that when reports say "more than" or "at least" about death tolls, they definitely are much higher than ever reported. We also have noticed that, as never before, earthquakes come in at higher magnitude and, within a few hours, it is downgraded. When news reports a strange weather event in a location not known for it, they automatically say it is "rare" or a "rare phenomenon" when, in fact, it has never happened before.
—— An example is the tornado some years back in the mile high city of Denver. It was deemed rare. Having lived in tornado alley for many years, we can say it had never happened before: tornadoes are flat land events, certainly not mountain events. This is exactly why people today are saying, as God predicted, "Nothing has changed, everything is going along as it always has;" thus, they believe Jesus is not coming for, perhaps, another 100 or 1000 years, to be totally unprepared: His coming as a thief in the night.
Meaningful Quotes: submitted by Sister Helen of Texas, Sister Tammy of Florida and Sister María of Oregon
—— "If you're talking and your mind goes blank, turn off the sound." ~ author unknown
—— "Millions of people over the centuries have, little by little, cheated God out of Christianity." ~ author unknown
—— "We have to admit there is an immeasurable distance between all that is read in the Bible (versus) the practice of Christians." ~ author unknown
—— "Many people want more than 100-per cent from employees, self, spouses and others; so it is often that we hear, 'I gave 110-per cent!' What does it take to achieve just 100-percent much less more than 100-percent? Adding a numeric value to each letter of the alphabet, then applying that to specific words, we can determine what gets 100% and what it takes to achieve more than 100%: i.e. A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on for each letter to Z, the sum to equal percentages.
—— Numerically, "hard work" equals 98% while "knowledge" equals 96%; "attitude" on the other hand takes us to 100%. Better yet, "love of God" equals 101%. Therefore, one can conclude, with mathematical certainty, that while hard work and knowledge will get us close and attitude will get us there, it is the love of God that will put us over the top. ~ author unknown
Fallen Angels & Giants: the population of Biblical giants are purportedly known as Nephilims, but the word itself does not appear in the Bible or the ancient Hebrew language. 'Nephilim' is listed in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance Hebrew Dictionary but provides no scripture references, only directing the reader to "see giants."
—— The majority of Christians have heard or been taught that some of Satan's fallen angels took a liking to human women, ultimately mating with them, which resulted in terrifying giants born of those unholy unions. God's Word will prove who created the story, that it did not happen, and why it could not happen. Supposedly, this was the interpretation, primarily, of Genesis 6:1-4, quoted below.
—— "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which (nationality) they chose. And the Lord said, 'My spirit shall not always strive (struggle) with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.' There were giants (cruel men) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty (powerful) men which were of old, men of renown (reputation and fame)."
—— The entire chapter discusses Noah, why God was about to destroy mankind then instructing Noah, the only man to find favor with the Lord, to build an ark for a coming flood. Verse 5 clearly finds fault with man, not fallen angels. Previous to Noah, God's complaint was men marrying pagan women, who knew not God, instead of God fearing virtuous women: "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
—— The first four scriptures offer several words we looked up in the Hebrew Dictionary and in man's "New World Collegiate Dictionary:" sons, giants, renown. Each was chosen in order to determine God's overall intent and Truth; as usual, Hebrew words often are derived from other words, which results in the applied word not only revealing God's intent, and Truth clarified, by almost telling a story in the one word. The question is, "Did fallen angels really mate with human women and, if so, did it result in giants?"
—— Even more clarity on "sons of God" is found in Romans 8:14 "Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God." The ancient Jews followed God, who also offered salvation to the "stranger" or gentile, if you will. In fact, He said that if the gentiles would obey Him, He would give them names better than sons and daughters. Thus, the Jews were the "sons and daughters" of God. Why would that same phrase mean something entirely different in Genesis 6:1-4? It does not mean anything different; it is the same throughout the Bible: God is consistent, does not change anything from start to finish; else He would cause confusion among the people.
—— We placed within parenthesis within the Genesis scriptures the basic meaning of each of the three words. The result is that "giants" was an Hebrew term used to describe cruel men. We have seen short men who seemed to be 10-feet tall and we have seen short men noticeably shortened by their cruelty. We have seen tall men as lovable teddy bears and we have seen tall men who could be brutal thus seemed small. It is not about size, it is about character inside reflected on the outside for the whole world to see.
—— It is truly inspirational that God saw fit to fashion Jesus in a way that did not appeal to anyone, not handsome or comely or wealthy; nothing about Him that would cause people to follow Him, not at all what the Pharisees would have thought of as King of the Jews: small, deformed, face marred more than any man, black and poor of worldly goods, no great armies, slept on the streets and walked every where— to those who sat at His feet and followed wheresoever, He was a man who stood as tall as heaven is high.
—— Christ's followers saw the man within His twisted body: a man of love and compassion, ever kind to everyone including His enemies, so utterly giving that He gave His life for our life. The world, of course, was against Christ thus saw only in Him a threat that might turn the people, weaken the Roman government ruling Israel, and possibly rip apart their tight grip on the Jews. After all, He was dubbed "King of the Jews" and King Herod would have none of that.
—— The Pharisees, on the other hand, saw a man putting them to shame and weakening their spiritual leadership. On the other side of the coin, they had lost so much of God's Truth and understanding of prophecy that they truly did not recognize their own Messiah. Much as it is today, they were not heeding God's prophets and, in many cases, killed the prophets as "false prophets." With their mighty tongues people today are slaying God's prophets; and, as it was in ancient times, God's prophets are few: yet, no one seems to know how to recognize God's true prophets. It is vital to life to recognize God's prophets.
—— Alas, we digress, so we must get back to "giants." First, the "angels-with-men's daughters" story was perpetuated by Papal Rome, who has in its Vulgate all of the purported missing books, missing from our AKJV Bible that is, one such book titled "Nephilim:" remember the Hebrew Dictionary for the word referred readers to the word "giants" and the "missing" book supposedly is the Nephilims' story.
—— It is not surprising, considering Rome was a pagan nation, that "giant" was a word used in Greek mythology: "a huge being of human form who warred with the Greek gods; an imaginary being of human form with super human size and strength." The Hebrew word, however, is defined as a "bully and/or tyrant:" respectively— intimidate, browbeat, harass; oppressor, dictator, tormenter, persecutor. There is no root for the word giant in the Hebrew language; its roots are in Old English, Old French, Latin, and Greek, each of which has a long heritage in paganism with its many gods, myths and legends: right up Papal Rome's alley, tools to increase the great whore's numbers.
—— Having said that, there were many giants throughout the Bible, men who oppressed by dictatorship, men who bullied others, took from the people, destroyed nations and more: consider Pharaoh who sought to kill all first born sons of the Jews, resulting in Pharaoh raising Moses as his own, and whom Moses came up against for the Jews freedom; Rome destroyed Israel; the second King Herod order the death of all first born Jewish sons in an attempt to slay the newborn "King of the Jews," Jesus.
—— In the ancient Hebrew, 'giant' does not define or even imply a physically huge person, rather it is a person well known for cruelty, harassment, torment, which could just as well have been a man of small stature, such as was Jesus, instead of a physical giant. There are human giants even today: just look at those seven, eight and nine-footer basketball players, but they are not necessarily evil just because of size. Not surprising is that some of history's most insanely cruel world leaders, and even today, have been and/or are small men who had huge reputations and fame and who fostered great fear.
—— As noted, literal giants exist worldwide even today, a number of them exceeding 9-feet tall: it is a pituitary disease know as gigantism, which causes the patient to continue growing forever, an unfortunate happenstance that results in early deaths. Obviously, all diseases existed from the beginning and gigantism apparently existed in David's day.
—— Most humans have reached a permanent height between 16 to 18-years old. Early deaths are attributed to the strain excessive heights put upon not only the bones and muscles but also vital organs, especially the heart and lungs: many can no longer walk as young as mid- to late 20s. Added to strain are emotional stresses: hackled, gawked at and verbally abused, lack of sufficient funds to medically stop continuing growth.
—— The Hebrew for "son" or "sons" used throughout the Bible imply humans. We who love God and Christ are called "God's sons and daughters," which is no different than the above Genesis verse citing "sons of God." The chapter clearly points out that, by man having continued to go against God, He was ready to destroy them.
—— Researching this matter, we could find no Biblical evidence that fallen angels mated with human women. Such unions are impossible for angels and never can be, even in the new earth and new heavens; concerning the latter, there will be no one old, no one an infant, none given in marriage, AND no need to populate or repopulate new earth. Earth's living population today is about 6.5-billion people, of which 85% are avowed Christians but only one-third of the 85% does God accept. That would equal a pure population of about 1.6-billion people; add to the 1.6-billion all who will be in the first resurrection. The current 6.5-billion is considered an unmanageable population. Obviously, God considers the billions who will populate new earth just the right number.
—— One Bible verse does say, "There are those born of evil." Ah, but that still does not imply angel/human unions. God created all that there is and clarified, "I, even I created evil." We are told also that there are those born for honor and others born for dishonor. It all comes back to God and only God having created anything. Those of evil, of dishonor, are here so the righteous, of honor, may learn what it is that God "hates with a perfect (justified) hate," that we do not do those things or be rendered "twice dead." He has been creating and teaching a "perfect and holy" population for earth, those who love and obey God because they chose to love and obey Him and follow in His Son's footsteps.
—— To back up Rome's "angels intimate with women" story, they pointed to Mother Mary as an example of an angel, in this case an archangel, impregnating Mary with our Lord and Saviour Jesus; however, Gabriel did not himself impregnate Mary; did not have intercourse with her: one might say He performed invitro fertilization, implanted God's seed-of-Christ within her, although we shall show how that is not even the case. FYI: Jesus was called both "son of man" and "son of God;" for He was created perfect by God and born of a woman and designated Heir Apparent to the throne of David: of David's lineage, as was His mother Mary.
—— We must recall that all of heaven's population, including God, are genderless and without form: none could be physically intimate with a human woman, for sex is not a spiritual application among angels: they do not need to populate any thing or place. Satan does, however, use sex as a weapon against man's flesh so he might commit fornication or adultery. Neither can angels create life, which is a power only God commands by simply speaking any thing and any one into being. We have only to examine Leah, the wife of Jacob who loved her sister Rachel, and to Sarah, Abraham's wife. Their experiences with conceiving a child, or not, are the same experiences of women today.
—— Genesis c.21, c.29, c.30: Sarah was barren during her first ninety years, finally giving her maid to Abraham to bear him an illegitimate son yet a son nonetheless; but, at age 90, God opened Sarah's womb and gave Abraham his only legal son, Isaac. When God noted that Leah, Jacob's wife, was "hated," He opened her womb and she bore six sons and a daughter for Jacob while Rachel, whom he loved, remained barren. Seeing Rachel's plight, who had given Jacob several of her maids to bear him children she called her own, then God opened her womb to Jacob.
—— With Rachel, who for a time was in fact Jacob's mistress, we find that even with her God gives the desires of the heart: hers was not right and that is why we are cautioned about what it is we desire, whether or not it is in God's will. What we learn here is that, contrary to man's thinking, no union of man and woman necessarily results in a child. A child is conceived only when, and for whatever reason, God opens a woman's womb and speaks a creation that only seems to come from a human union. It is then that, from man's perspective, his seed fertilizes the woman's egg and a fetus is formed.
—— By the above we see that creation has been an ongoing process of populating earth, having begun with Adam and Eve. In the case of Mary, Gabriel was merely God's messenger advising her that she would bear the Messiah, then God spoke the fetus into being: God does not need a man's seed or an angel to create a human child. Adam did not come by seed and egg, neither did Eve and neither did Jesus. Neither did any of us.
—— It is felt that the biggest problem causing people to accept what is illogical, when it comes to understanding God and His angels, is the result of two things: 1. People do not give enough credit to and recognize the full power of God, who is without limits; and, 2. They give too much credit to God's angels and to mankind.
—— ALL the power and credit must go to God and only God. This is exactly why God said, "ALL things work to good for those who love the Lord." Leah and Sarah felt blessed, fully understanding they had born children by God's will. And, they also understood that, until they did, they were barren by God's will. Rachel, on the other hand, was barren in the beginning because of her sinful union with Jacob; albeit, God finally consented to her desire to birth Jacob's children.
—— After all, Jacob had been tricked into marrying Leah when he thought he was marrying Rachel. Nevertheless, does God's ultimate capitulation make Him sinful? No, by His love He gives us our heart's desires, whether or not in His will, but He does caution about the consequences of what one truly desires: spiritual desires are without negative consequence; desires of the flesh carry many negative consequences including the risk of becoming "twice dead." He knew Jacob had been tricked; lied to and manipulated by Rachel's father, as it were. Therefore, Rachel's father was the one who sinned and caused Jacob to sin unaware, therefore Rachael's father must bear the greater punishment, for he continued to deceive Jacob.
—— We must realize that Satan will deceive and create any illusion necessary to turn people away from God, then turn them to quasi-pagan (Catholic and Protestant) or outright pagan beliefs, symbols, rituals and the people who lead them. THIS is why God flooded earth, saving only Noah and his family. Now we are about to see earth and the wicked destroyed by fire flaming forth from Christ's feet as He crosses our skies taking up His small flocks of sheep.
—— We are living in an age when the barren woman is blessed and those giving birth should weep; thus women should pray they remain barren for our Savior's arrival. We are living in the era of salvation no longer available. We are living in the year of faithfully watching the clouds, for Jesus is about to return. We are seeing the close of Laodicea coming up fast, the heavens about to open with God's trumpets sounding His Son's harvest, His host of angels about to glean the wheat from His fields.
—— Are you signed, sealed and ready to be delivered to heaven; or are you lukewarm or, perhaps, cold? If you are lukewarm, you are in danger of being twice dead; if you are cold, then actively and determinedly seek out God's Truth. It is available to all who seek the Truth in this, earth's last hours; God commanded His Truth deliberately compiled during this era just for the lukewarm and cold, which might want to return or turn to His Truth in earth's eleventh hour, so to speak.
—— Every person desiring heaven must "obey God's Commandments and have the faith of and in Jesus Christ." Revelation tells us this three times, for these two are the keys that open to us the gates of heaven. We cannot enter through the gates with only one key, as many teach that it takes only belief and faith in Christ: He said, "Do my Father's will. Do my Father's Doctrine." God's Will and His Doctrine are one and the same: His Law.
