MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE

Sleeplessness got a mention in the MSM a few days ago.  As I have suffered from sleeplessness for quite a long time, I have a natural interest in such articles.

Sleepless

Over the past few years, my sleeplessness has become very, very severe. This experience has enabled me to evaluate articles which are written about sleeplessness, and over the years I have found 99.9% are totally useless and have been written by people who have never experienced severe sleeplessness.

There is a key fact about sleeplessness, which only the true sufferers of the affliction are aware of. Every individual who does not sleep for a prolonged period will start to hallucinate. Some people will start to hallucinate after about 3 days, for others it will take four days, for others five, in the end every individual who does not sleep for a prolonged period will start to hallucinate.

Even the very strongest and most resilient people in our society, such as SAS soldiers, who have been especially trained to endure hardness and difficulty, will succumb to hallucinations after a prolonged period. It will be true, that they will be able to endure for longer than the average citizen, but in the end they will succumb as well.

This is how I was able to discern the article which appeared in the Belfast Telegraph, was from the pen of individuals who had been genuine sufferers of the sleepless affliction.

“The Seven Helpful Tips To Help You Sleep,” at the end of the article are total garbage, there are no tips or medications that will help you to sleep if you suffer from severe sleeplessness.

People who are old enough to remember the early 1970s will remember this. There was an endless stream, of  generally young people in that period, from both Loyalist and IRA/MI5 backgrounds who ended up appearing in court after signing a confession in which they admitted carrying out the most serious of crimes.

Their legal representatives would usually declare in court, “My client was forced to sign the confession statement under duress.”

The general population just laughed at this and said, “Tough, too bad.”

At the time, it was not generally known that the tactic of keeping people awake for prolonged periods, was being used. The beauty of this technique lies in the fact, when the accused person appears the court, there are no cuts or bruises or any other signs of physical abuse to be seen!

After a prolonged period of sleeplessness, people will admit to any crime, just in order to end the ordeal and to be allowed to get some sleep.

As far as I have been informed, they even tried this tactic on Lenny Murphy, but it did not work on him, he did not succumb to it!

The Christian who has to deal with suchlike afflictions has a big advantage over the non Christians. True Christians will have already have experienced God`s grace in their lives, which has already enabled them to endure and deal with lesser afflictions before God permits them to endure a more serious one. The Apostle Paul is the great example of this.

1 Cor 2:8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

The poor non-Christian who has to endure sleeplessness, or any other kind of affliction, does not have this comfort in their ordeal, they have to rely on their own strength to endure the hardship, which is quite often too much to bear.

I have no doubt the non-Christian who has to endure sleeplessness, faces the real possibility of going totally insane and possibly doing something totally insane.

One of they great pleasures I have had over recent years, before the sleeplessness became severe, was the privilege of being able to travel and play in Chess tournaments.

Most people think Chess is very boring, on the contrary, most people who play competitive Chess are very, very interesting people.

They are far more interesting than the people who go round putting up “flegs,” that is for sure!

Here is just one example of many.  A few years ago in Gibraltar, I had to play a German fellow called Peter Straub.  He is in the picture below.

Peter Straub

After the game was over we went to analyse it, as a consequence I got to know Peter, he was very pleasant and had a very good sense of humour.

He told me, when he was a young man in the 1960s he lived and worked in London. He said the English people were very kind to him, so he has a high regard for the English and he loved London. It just so happened he was there when the famous 1966 World Cup Final took place, so he was able to go to Wembley and support West Germany.

There was another very interesting thing he mentioned, he said when WW2 ended, his parents left Germany and went to live in Argentina!

I did not bother asking him why his parents did that?

I have met other very interesting Germans as well, that must be why I strongly suspect Germany will eventually leave the AK?

Due to my sleeplessness becoming very severe, I have now stopped travelling to play Chess in tournaments as it is now a waste of time.

Nevertheless this website gets lots of hits from all over the world.

My policy is not to post pictures of myself on the internet, however there are pictures of me on the internet at certain Chess tournaments, though I did not post them there.

It no longer matters whether people see them or not because my appearance has changed.

Edward Parker-Jones is like the Devil, he cannot rest and he tries to be everywhere he can in order to cause harm.

Would not be surprised if this is what Judas Iscariot looked like when the Devil entered into him?

THE FUTURE OF WARFARE?

A Pakistani Military Defence website has been reporting on Israel`s new technological advances in the military sphere.

FutureOfWarfare.gold

General Danny Gold, head of MAFAT. Is this the face of future warfare?

Some of the weapons of war displayed, include  the next generation of armoured vehicles.

A unmmanned submarine.

Alas, the downfall of Israel will not come in warfare, it will come when the Israelis embrace a false and Satanic “phony peace-process.”

The Bible describes the indestructable armour God has prepared for his people which will never fail in the day of battle and will never be outdated by technological adavances.

The Indestructable Armour Of God

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

THE RAINBOW COLOURS

We need to take the rainbow back!

The colours used in the Bible are well worth studying.

Red and white for example.

Revelation 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 

HID

Over the past few days I have been reading Matthew`s gospel and was greatly struck by the word “HID” in chapter 11.

Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

This morning I was presented with a wonderful modern day illustration of the truths presented in this verse.

An item on the Nolan show revealed that creation ministries will be in N.Ireland presenting the Bible truths about creation. The link is below.

‘Prehistoric Preachers’ to teach children dinosaurs and men lived together

Naturally the presenter of the radio show and a “guest commentator,” namely one Basil McCrea, put their best efforts into trying to discredit the truth. Puffed up with their own intellects they kept insisting the earth is millions of years old and “modern science” cannot be wrong!

The debate perfectly illustrated Matthew 11:25 and it illustrates the greatest paradox of all.

Basil

Blind Basil he cannot see the truth

Almighty God has freely revealed the truth about salvation, history, the sciences,  the future and all the other important aspects of human life. Yet simultaneously while revealing the truth, Almighty God hides it from God haters like Basil McCrea!
