Africa


This story is a little odd but profound. Recently I have hearing the song "Africa" by Toto on the radio. It's an old song from 1982, which I remember playing on the radio when I was 11 or 12. Well, out of the blue it's playing repeatedly on various radio stations and I felt drawn to the song. Here it the music video, by the way:



Today I was driving around and "Africa" played yet again on the radio. Then I realized I needed to look up this song because the Lord has a message for me. But I forgot and went about my business during the day. After going to the gym this evening, I turned on the radio in the car (different station) and guess what started to play? Africa! Okay, I need to look it up!

I looked up the lyrics when I got home (see below) and it hit me what the song is about, in a spiritual sense: Jesus is yearning to be with his bride, which is us. The lyrics are like Song of Solomon, a metaphor for the love and yearning between the Bridegroom and bride.

Then I looked up the band on Wikipedia and it says:

"Toto is an American rock band formed in 1976 in Los Angeles. The band's current lineup consists of Joseph Williams (lead vocals), David Paich (keyboards, vocals), Steve Porcaro (keyboards), Steve Lukather (guitars, vocals), plus touring members Lenny Castro (percussion), Warren Ham (saxophone), Shem von Schroeck (bass) and Shannon Forrest (drums)... "

Immediately I see Shem and Ham. Okay, where's Japheth? So I looked more closely. If you combine "Joseph" and "Lukather", rearrange the letters and toss a few out, then you get "Japheth." It's hiding in there! So what does this mean? Every nation in the world is descended from Shem, Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah. They represent ALL NATIONS. This passage then came to mind:

"After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: 

Salvation belongs to our God, 
who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!" - Revelation 7:9-10

Jesus is yearning to be with his bride and He is coming soon!

P.S. Notice when the bride flies in: 12:30, a half hour after midnight!


"Africa" by Toto:

I hear the drums echoing tonight

But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation

She's coming in, 12:30 flight

The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation

I stopped an old man along the way

Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies

He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you

There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night

As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company

I know that I must do what's right

As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Africa

I bless the rains down in Africa

(I bless the rain)

I bless the rains down in Africa

(I bless the rain)

I bless the rains down in Africa

I bless the rains down in Africa

(Ah, gonna take the time)

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Forest Fires

One morning this week I was reading from Ezekiel. The valley here was a bit hazy with smoke from forest fires in Idaho, Nevada and the big one around Redding, California. It's hot and dry out west. Then I read this passage:

"The word of the Lord came to me: 'Son of man, face the south and preach against it. Prophesy against the forest land in the Negev, and say to the forest there: Hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Lord God says: I am about to ignite a fire in you, and it will devour every green tree and every dry tree in you. The blazing flame will not be extinguished, and every face from the south to the north will be scorched by it. Then all people will see that I, Yahweh, have kindled it. It will not be extinguished.'" - Isaiah 20:45-48

I believe He was saying these fires are part of his judgment on America.

The Mandela Effect: Quantum Manipulations in the Bible



The Mandela Effect is a disturbing topic, for sure. I do think it is important to understand and I'll try to explain why and share my experience of it here. As a primer, this article on Truth Farmer is worth reading:

We all know things will get crazy in the end times. Great signs and wonders that will deceive, if possible, even the elect. God alone can help us see through it!

I first heard about the Mandela Effect in regard to the Berenstein (pronounced 'steen') Bears story books that I remember from childhood. Now they are called Berenstain (pronounced 'stain') Bears - and there is no record in our current physical reality that they were ever called Berenstein Bears. Except I remember it very well, and my mom and sister and wife do too! Millions of people do because they were popular children's books since the 1960s. But it is GONE from the physical record.

Later I learned there are many, many more examples of pop culture names or phrases shifting. I was born in 1971 and remember Jiffy Peanut Butter from childhood very well. So does my mom and many other people. But it never existed. It was always Jif Peanut Butter - a name I never heard until recently. In the movie Star Wars, Darth Vader said to Luke Skywalker, "Luke, I am your father!" It was THE iconic line from the original movie series. A college friend loved to quote Star Wars and would imitate Darth Vader and repeat that quote. But guess what? The movie now says, "No, I am your father!" There is no record Vader ever said "Luke." And on it goes. In the original Snow White movie, the phrase, "Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?" has become, "Magic mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?" I absolutely remember "Mirror, Mirror," and the other phrase is not right at all. But according to the current physical reality, it was never "Mirror, Mirror!"

Now think about all those Hollywood movies, starting with "Back to the Future" in the 1980s, and what they have been telling us about time travel. They show people going back in time to change the past and thereby alter the current physical reality. Consider also dimensional portals, black holes, the super high-tech occult activities CERN, and that Einstein proved space and time are relative. You see where this is going?

By the way, you can go online and find all kinds of people and websites to "debunk" these Mandela Effect "conspiracies," just like you can for 9/11, vaccines dangers, geoengineering and chemtrails, the CIA's involvement in the drug trade, history of giants, etc. But I don't believe the Mandela debunkers because I REMEMBER, and so do millions of other people.

The pop culture shifts are bizarre and unsettling, but it really disturbed me when I began to see changes in the Bible, which I consider to be the inspired word of God and the essential revelation we need to know God. I have been studying the Bible since 1989 when I became a Christian. I was a straight-A student in high school and applied the same diligence to studying the Scriptures and even memorized verses and passages.

The book of Isaiah is a favorite of mine because God has given me numerous personal verses from it. The first time I read the book of Isaiah from beginning to end was 1991. I read it through again 2003 and continue to read it today. So you can imagine my consternation when I discovered the famous verse about the "lion shall lie down with the lamb" is gone from Isaiah in both places where it used to appear, chapters 11 and 65. Now it says this:

"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." - Isaiah 11:6

That famous, iconic Bible verse about how the world will be after Jesus Christ returns and removes the curse on creation that originated with Adam and Eve's fall - that verse has been manipulated. Now it says "wolf" and "dwell" instead of "lion" and "lie down." There used to be a beautiful prophetic symmetry there, because in the Bible Jesus Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb of God, and it is He who will usher in this age to come. The Lion and the Lamb. Whereas the wolf in the Scriptures represents Satan and those who follow him - "wolf in sheep's clothing," "inwardly they are ravening wolves," "Behold I sent you out as sheep among wolves." Can you hear Satan laughing at this change? I can.

By the way, the Isaiah change isn't limited to a certain translation or text. "The lion shall lie down with the lamb" no longer exists in any Bible, anywhere, from any time - not even the Dead Sea Scrolls or the Septuagint. It's GONE from our current physical reality. So for posterity's sake, here is the original verse from someone's memory:

"Then the lion shall lie down with the lamb, and the bear shall eat grass like the ox, and the child shall play on the hole of the asp, and nothing shall hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain." - Isaiah 11:6

There are numerous other changes in the Bible, though not enough to seriously corrupt the Scriptures. 99.99% is still intact. I still study it and consider it the word of God. Some changes are universal and others are limited to certain texts and translations. The King James Version in particular has been targeted and now contains ridiculous phrases like "suburbs", "muffler," "nursing father," "unicorn," "stuff" instead of "possessions" and "bottle" instead of "wineskin" in the parable of the wineskins. Even the Lord's prayer, which I memorized verbatim as a teenager because we recited often at church, has been subtly changed in the KJV. In Matthew 6, it now says "Our Father which art in heaven" instead of "who art in heaven," which grammatically makes God a thing instead of a Person. It says "Thy will be done in earth" instead of "on earth", which is a subtle but important distinction because Sheol and Hades are in the earth, whereas we among the living are on the earth. It says "forgive us our debts" instead of "forgive us our transgressions," as if sin is a matter of owing somebody money.

Here is a fairly comprehensive list of the changes in the Bible: 


Genesis 3:15 is another important change to be aware of because this is the prototypical Bible prophecy about how Jesus the Messiah (Eve's "seed") will overcome the beast, the Antichrist (the serpent's "seed"), at the end of the age. This change is in most English versions, including KJV:

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." - Genesis 3:15, KJV

It used to say, "he shall crush thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Now it says "it" instead of "he," grammatically making the Messiah a thing and not a Person. But more importantly, it says Eve's seed and the serpent's seed are merely bruising each other, instead of Eve's seed crushing or defeating the other. In other words, it makes the cosmic struggle between God and Satan a battle of equals, both merely bruising the other, instead of a battle where God clearly wins in the end. That's a big deal! Can you hear Satan laughing? I can.

I'd like to address one more quantum manipulation in the Bible - the parable of the minas in Luke 19, which is about stewardship, faithfulness and bearing good fruit with the talents and resources the Lord has given us. Here is the affected portion:

"And another came and said, 'Master, here is your mina. I have kept it hidden away in a cloth because I was afraid of you, for you’re a tough man: you collect what you didn’t deposit and reap what you didn’t sow.' He told him, 'I will judge you by what you have said, you evil slave! If you knew I was a tough man, collecting what I didn’t deposit and reaping what I didn’t sow, why didn’t you put my money in the bank? And when I returned, I would have collected it with interest!' So he said to those standing there, 'Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has 10 minas.' But they said to him, 'Master, he has 10 minas.' ‘I tell you, that to everyone who has, more will be given; and from the one who does not have, even what he does have will be taken away. But bring here these enemies of mine, who did not want me to rule over them, and slaughter them in my presence.'" - Luke 19:20-27, Holman

In the parable, the Master said the unfruitful slave should have put his money in the "bank," but it used to say something like "exchangers" or "money changers." Jesus didn't say to put our money in the "bank."  By the way, who runs the banks? The banksters, the Luciferian elite, the New World Order cabal. They want all our money in the bank, eventually in the form of electronic cryptocurrency, so they can give everyone the mark of the beast for buying and selling and totally control the world economy. Of course they want the Bible to say we should put our money in the bank.

The really disturbing change is the final verse: "... and slaughter them in my presence." It was different before, something like "remove him from my presence," which would be similar to the parallel parable of the talents in Matthew 25. Jesus never said to slaughter anyone in his presence, as if he enjoyed watching someone brutally killed in front of him! Who would want to defend that verse, especially to a non-Christian?

Many Christians believe the Bible may be banned in the end times. I wonder sometimes how that could happen. What if it is banned not because of what was in the Bible, but what has changed in the Bible, like that verse?

Which brings me to another concern. To the best of my understanding, these quantum manipulations happened around March 2016. They seem like a trial run to me, a beta test, to see how people react and then plan their next round for maximum effect. Consider this verse in Daniel about the Antichrist:

"And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time." - Daniel 7:25, KJV

What does it mean to "change times and laws?" This phrase is unique in the Bible. I now think it means - at least in part - to change time(lines), as in manipulating space-time or quantum manipulations. And changing "laws" may refer to corrupting Scriptures. The Antichrist is not even in office yet, so what will come next? Jesus warned about great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

I also wonder what the fulfillment of this prophecy in Amos will ultimately be:

"Hear this! The days are coming—this is the declaration of the Lord God—when I will send a famine through the land: not a famine of bread or a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord." - Amos 8:11, Holman

All of this makes me want to hide the word of God in my heart while I can. God is still sovereign. He is for us and with us, so there is nothing to fear. And remember, the Word of God never changes because Jesus is the Word, and it is the Holy Spirit who leads us into all truth! By faith in Christ we are anchored to the highest heaven. There are no quantum manipulations there!

UPDATE:

The video below was brought to my attention which describes another, even more disturbing reason for quantum manipulations in the Bible. It claims Satan's intention is not to have the Bible banned, but to corrupt it to the point where the Scriptures point to a false messiah instead of Jesus Christ.

We are truly living in the time of false messiahs, false signs and wonders and STRONG DELUSION. Let us draw near to God today, because it doesn't get easier in the future!

"False messiahs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the elect." - Matthew 24:24

"The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved. For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, so that all will be condemned—those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness." - 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
