Meltdowns Happen, but Get Back Out There

0 Shares

It was about 10 minutes after my graduation (yay!) and I had just found my little family in the stands at the top of the arena. The other graduates were standing around taking pictures with their loved ones, laughing and holding their gorgeous flowers. It was loud in there, but not nearly as loud as the sound that was about to come out of my son’s mouth. This low, deep, groan that comes from the pit of his gut. I often wonder how it doesn’t hurt his throat. But this is unlike any other groan you have heard, it’s low in pitch/tone, but not low in volume. He digs deep for these sounds, they are meant to be heard.

And everyone around us heard my son.

I’m sure they recognized this sound as the one interrupting the ceremony, and-

I’m getting ahead of myself, lets go back to the beginning.

Rewind a bit to the start of commencement.

Graduation.

Y’see, I scoped the exits upon arrival. “That’s how we’ll escape,” I thought, and I made sure my family sat near them and away from people. I made sure Hammy (my husband) was settled with the kids, gave him the pointers, directed him to the exits, and I made my way to the floor to sit with the rest of my graduating class.

About five minutes into yet another dull speech about pride and how our class will shape the future of this nation, I hear my son. And for some reason I think that muttering to myself instructions for my husband to “walk him around or out the back door” can reach his ears. Let me tell you, it doesn’t. Didn’t stop me though, he was going to hear these whispers from 800 feet away.

Another 10 minutes go by, and this guy is still giving this dry speech when my son starts to get louder, his groans and raspy screams are starting to echo off the walls of the arena. The speaker pauses for a second, and then his voice gets louder in what I can only assume is an attempt to drown out my son. I think to myself, “good luck, even with a mic my son will have you beat.”

Soon I notice my husband walking my son around the top of the arena, and I think, “finally, you listen.” My son is still loud but he’s beginning to calm down. It wasn’t until I actually crossed the stage and took my picture that I realized that I didn’t really know what was going on at my own graduation because I was too busy thinking about how my children were going to respond to the event, and whether my husband could manage.

And this was exactly why I didn’t really want to come to my own graduation. It was to double as a vacation for us because I was graduating in Virginia (we’re from Texas), but I worried about not being able to enjoy ourselves because we would spend much of our time in “prevention and escape” mode.

I decided to take the leap. How else were my children going to learn to interact with the world if I hid them from the world? So here we are, a 21-hour drive from home, in an arena full of strangers, and my son is on the verge of a meltdown. I saw it coming. I knew it was coming, but yet I wanted to take an after-graduation picture like everyone else.

The Meltdown…and my (surprising) reaction.

About four quick, awkward snaps of the camera phone, it happened. Full and total meltdown. Oh, and this was a meltdown from the greatest hits collection. Aidan went all in on this one. Pictures were out of the question now. It was time to make an escape. We were right by the door so we made a quick exit, and I don’t know why I thought that would help, leaving. It never does. You gotta ride the meltdowns out once they happen, y’know? But today of all days I thought changing locations would help. Ha! Okay…

So, once outside I find it’s just as packed with people as it is on the inside. This doesn’t look good for us. Aidan is still going strong. Honestly, if he could hold a tune I’d put him on ‘The Voice’, boy has some pipes. Here comes the stares, the comments, the judgment. And for the first time ever, I realized that I didn’t really care. I just didn’t.

I know that I always talk about not caring about other’s comments or reactions, and I like to think that I was living the life that I was preaching, but deep down…I cared. I often felt the embarrassment, the anxiousness, the anger of the situation. But on this day, I realized I didn’t really give a damn. And my kid was giving an Oscar-worthy performance. He was loud, big tears, big gestures, biting his arm, hitting his head, all of it. And I was kinda like, “meh.” Not to his obvious signs of discomfort, but to how others chose to respond to my child having a difficult time.

I’m in my dress, cap and gown, and I’m catching eyes left and right and I don’t care as much as I felt I would have. I bent down in my gown and dress I will probably never wear again and I held a conversation with my child who at the moment probably didn’t care. I told him, “Aidan, I know you are having a rough time and I will wait with you until it passes, and as soon as it does, I will work very hard to figure out what went wrong and what I could do to make it better in the future.” I don’t know for sure if he understands every word I am saying, but I always assume he does. I’ll repeat this or some variation of this several times throughout the meltdown, while standing as close to him as he would allow. I don’t physically handle him unless he is hurting himself, which in this instance he was. I hold his hands for about five seconds, then I let go. If he goes back to doing it, I will hold his hands again, then let go. And repeat if necessary. He will usually stop hurting himself before the meltdown actually ends.

He took about 15 minutes to calm down, which isn’t a lot compared to some of his other meltdowns, but this one was a large one. I think every pair of eyes was on us, but I didn’t give a damn. Was I embarrassed? Meh, yeah, I think (I don’t really think I was as embarrassed as I had been in the past), but I thought about how Aidan was feeling. And when you get passed the whole “I’m having a bad time” bit and focus more on “my child is having a tough time” you can let most shit go, including the stares from judgmental strangers. This isn’t to say that your feelings aren’t valid, I’m the biggest proponent of owning your own emotions, but do what you can to help your child get back to their version of “normal.” This helps me. Focusing on my children over myself. I’ll have a breakdown in the bathroom after they fall asleep or something. Or I won’t.

We all feel it.

We have all felt the stares, heard the comments, the pangs of embarrassment and anxiety when our child has a meltdown in public. That feeling of helplessness is like no other. You finally get home and you swear off going out again. And you don’t. For days. Then weeks. You don’t go to the park, you don’t go out to eat, forget about the zoo.

You begin to question your ability as a parent. You have pre-planned everything, you found all the exits, you have all their favorite items, you went at the right times, you chose an event that was tolerable…and yet, they still had a colossal meltdown. You’re never going out again. You feel awful for feeling this way. You thought you were stronger than this.

And you are. Your child is going to meltdown. And you’re going to survive. They’re going to embarrass you, cause you grief, and do a number on your anxiety. And guess what? You’re going to survive that too. What you’re not going to make it through is waking up one day and realizing that you hadn’t actually lived.

You owe it to your children to give them the opportunity to experience the world. They won’t know how to live in it if they don’t get out in it. The general public will be alright, as you and your child have every right to be where you are. I’m not saying you don’t have a right to feel embarrassed or anxious. I am saying, shelve it for the time being, focus on your child and when the time comes (you’ll know when), feel it all. Feel every bit of it, you’re human, you have feelings.

You might have to leave wherever you are when a meltdown occurs, but come back out. It might not be the same day, or the next one, but come back out. Take a pause for a few, but get back out there. Try again.

Living a life of fear isn’t really living, it’s existing and you owe it to your children (and yourself) to at least try…and then keep trying.

XOXO

  5. How’s it been?

    I want to share some very significant news that’s been making its way around the internet relevant to our future security.

    We are approaching a future of a one world cashless society where we will be mandated to receive an RFID chip implanted in our body. This microchip will hold all our personal information and we will lose our privacy due to the tracking technology.

    Bigger news than this, did you know that this was foretold almost two-thousand years in the past by a man named Jesus Christ? How could this be? Keep reading to see… This may be the most important thing you will ever read.

    • “Also he(the false prophet) compels all alike, both small and great, both the rich and the poor, both free and slave, to be marked with an inscription on their right hands or on their foreheads,

    So that no one will have power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp (mark, inscription), that is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

    Here is discernment. Let anyone who has intelligence (penetration and insight enough) calculate the number of the beast, for it is a human number; his number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 AMPC)..

    Referring to the last days, this can only be speaking of a cashless society, which has yet to occur, but we are on the horizon of. How come? Otherwise we could still buy or sell without receiving the mark between each other if physical money was still in use. It logically deduces itself to this end.

    This mark can’t be anything spiritual, because the word references two distinct physical spots. If it were to be spiritual, it would just say in the forehead.

    Here is where it really ties together. It is astonishing how perfect the holy scriptures are concerning this RFID microchip. Here are some notes from a person named Carl Sanders who worked with a lineup of engineers to help produce the RFID microchip in the 90’s.

    Mr. Carl Sanders attended 17 New World Order conferences with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss their agenda on how to bring about this one-world system. The US government commissioned Carl Sanders to engineer a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the nations-a microchip that would be placed beneath the skin with a hypodermic needle(a fast, convenient procedure that would be gradually accepted by the nations).

    Mr. Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by US tax dollars, took on this task and produced a RFID microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable by way of the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the biblical scriptures (Mr. Sanders was not a follower of Jesus at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars gathering information on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted below the skin.

    These researchers determined that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two spots Revelation says the mark will go) aren’t just the most convenient spots, but are also the only viable places for constant, steady temperature changes inside the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The chip is approximately 7 millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It’s capable of containing many pages of details about you. All of your basic records, work records, crime records, health data, and financial information will be saved on this microchip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this RFID chip, which he regretfully helped bring forth, is the “mark of the beast” described in Revelation 13:16-18. The Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which is defined as a “scratch or etching.” Additionally it is fascinating to observe that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. That word is “chi xi stigma,” with the end word, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick. Carl believes that is referring to the use of a hypodermic needle being poked in the human flesh to insert the RFID microchip.”

    Mr. Sanders reached out to a doctor asking what would take place if the lithium contained within the microchip leaked into the body. The medical doctor responded by saying a horrible sore would appear in that location. Here is what the book of Revelation has to say:

    “And the first went and poured out his bowl into the land— and a bad and evil sore came upon the people having the mark of the beast and the ones giving worship to his image” (Revelation 16:2 DLNT).

    God’s word tells us that we cannot buy or sell without accepting the mark, or the number of its name. The number being identified as 666. The Bible tells us to count the number 666. How can we calculate 666?

    This is where it gets really interesting. Calculating the number of the beast 666 has been long debated throughout history, but has finally been made known in these last times by the Holy Spirit. What you will read confirms itself with the scriptures the real interpretation to calculate 666.

    In the Bible, God uses the number 3 for confirmation. Allow me to share a few examples:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    What is interesting is the the mark of the beast is explained in detail in 3 separate verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists 3 different characteristics of the given subject. The last 3 being the number six being used 3 times in a row. Here is a key point to unlocking how to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count the number of the beast, 666? It means to add up. How may we add up 666? Call back to mind my past point about God confirming in 3’s. Now logically, what would be the best way to add up the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. It is not sensible to count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also revert us back to the beginning. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only rational option is 6+6+6=18. What is fascinating is that the verse that tells us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark of the beast. Now what is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other possible combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for moving the “+” symbol in between the sixes are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Add both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the scriptures where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    If we add up all three values by counting 666 by moving the plus symbol around in all three possible combinations, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is fascinating concerning the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name for Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb of God being the Son of God, Jesus.

    Now what is fascinating about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the same exact method to get the quantity 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It’s perpetual.

    With utilizing the identical formulation of counting by adding the plus symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a manner?

    Yet another interesting factor to observe is that if you add up all of the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a sign that we have to add up three sixes as opposed to perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what could this suggest? Well we all know in this world we’re recognized by numbers in various forms. Starting from our birth certificates to social security, also with our drivers license, being recognized based on a system of ruler ship. So it is conceivable that this RFID microchip will incorporate a brand new identification that has a complete total of 18 characters.

    May this be the title of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system which is recognized by 18 characters? This would fit the scriptures that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right-hand or forehead, and that it additionally carries the number of the beast, in the course of a future cashless money society.

    Go to: https://biblefreedom.com to see all the proof!

    The Bible warns us in the last days that a false prophet will stand up performing miraculous signs deceiving many to obtain the mark of the beast:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    No matter the cost, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We’re dwelling in very prophetic times with major Biblical prophecies being fulfilled. When Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as capital of Israel in December of 2017, this was a huge step to fulfill the Third Temple prophesied in the words of God.

    God’s Holy scriptures warns us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    In the Islamic religion, they have a man called the Mahdi, known as their messiah who they are waiting to be revealed. There are a number of testimonies from individuals on the internet who consider this man will be Barack Obama who may be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had unusual dreams about Barack Obama. He came on stage proclaiming himself to be a follower of Christ with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, however it was later revealed by his family that he indeed is a religious Muslim.

    His actual birth name is stated to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name switched to Barack Obama. Is there any significance to this?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the word “Barack” means “lighting”, and the usage of “Bama” (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights” of heaven.

    The following day after the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the triumphing select 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s domestic state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama use to be a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whoever seats themselves in the future Third Temple in Jerusalem, declaring themselves to be God IS THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

    Why do we need Jesus Christ?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our good works can’t save our souls from the wrong we’ve committed. If we step in front of a judge in the court of law, being guilty of a criminal offense, the judge won’t judge us by the good that we’ve carried out, rather the crimes we’ve committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this kind of moral justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy creator?

    God has introduced to us His ethical law’s by the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These legal guidelines were not given so we may be justified, however so that we might see the need for our savior. They’re the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we all know that it is an offense to steal, lie, dishonor our dad and mom, and son on.

    We can try to observe all the moral guidelines of the 10 commandments, however we will by no means catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law received by Moses manifested as flesh over 2000 years ago inside the body of Jesus Christ. He was brought forth to be our justification by perfectly fulfilling the law, living a sinless life that only God may accomplish.

    The distance between us and the law of God can by no means be reconciled by our very own merit, however the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to seize hold of, through faith in Him, He’ll pull us up being the one to justify us. As within the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your fine, despite the fact that you are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let you go free. That is what Jesus did nearly 2000 years in the past on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled within the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His last words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    So why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not be overlooked. Because of the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it ought to be quenched and satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). That is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is due to the fact the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it were to be poured out upon us who’ve earned it, we would all perish and go to hell. God created a means of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not stay in Hades, but was raised and seated on the right hand of God in power.

    So now once we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer looks at the individual who deserves His wrath, but the glorious image of His perfect Son residing inside our hearts, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a means of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we ought to do is turn from our sins and believe in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. That is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, butrather receiving His words, taking them to heart. In which we no longer live to practice sin, but turn away from our sins and practice righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we will come to be transformed into the image of God by means of faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who’s willing to provide the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    What are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only wants the best for us, restoring all the things this world has stolen from us. That is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.

    He’s waiting to listen to you. That God given tongue to speak language, by using faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing to Him your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you receive the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you need His Holy Spirit dwelling inside you reworking you into a child of the living God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than anyone else in the Bible, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very cause He was brought forth to die for us, to deliver us from this place that we earned by our sins.

    He describes hell as a actual place where,

    “Their worm does not die
    And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    Out of all of the world religions, how can we make sure the Bible has it all right? The scientific information has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning in which space, time and matter had been created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it right that space, time and matter all came into existence at the start of the universe, it additionally states in 7 distinct places that the universe is expanding 1000’s of years earlier than scientists discovered this information.

    Did you already know that the real Noah’s Ark was discovered in the place where the Bible told us it would be with the correct dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the Exodus event of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is by far the most translated and examine historical book in the history of the world, full of predictive prophecies, matching what we find in the book of nature. Wouldn’t you assume God’s word to be so?

  6. How has your day been going?

    I’d like to share some extremely important news that has been spreading throughout the internet regarding our future well being.

    We’re on the horizon of a future of a one world cashless society where we will be mandated to receive an RFID chip implanted in our body. This microchip will hold all our information and we will lose our privacy due to the tracking capabilities.

    Even more of a concern, did you know that this was foretold around two thousand years ago from a man named Jesus? Hard to believe? Continue reading to see… This may well be the most important thing you will ever read.

    • “And he(the false prophet) makes everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of its name.

    This calls for wisdom: Let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a person. Its number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 CSB)…

    Speaking of the last days, this could only be referring to a society where physical currency is no more, which we have yet to see, but we are heading towards. Why so? Because we would be able to buy or sell without accepting the mark of the beast among each other if tangible money was still around. It logically deduces itself to this reason.

    This mark can not be anything spiritual, because the word references two contrasting physical locations. If it were to be spiritual, the text would only conclude one place.

    Now here is where it gets interesting. It is surprising how on the mark(so to speak) the word of God is with respect to this RFID microchip. Here are some notes from a person named Carl Sanders who labored with a team of engineers to help produce the RFID chip in the 90’s.

    Mr. Carl Sanders attended 17 New World Order meetings with heads of state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the CIA to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to invent a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the nations-a microchip that would be inserted beneath the skin with a hypodermic needle(a fast, convenient system that would be progressively received by society).

    Carl Sanders, along with a crew of engineers with him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by US tax dollars, took on this task and designed a chip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable by the temperature changes in our skin. With out having knowledge of the holy Bible (Sanders was not a follower of Christ at the time), these men spent one-and-a-half-million dollars gathering information on the best and most convenient place to have the chip placed below the skin.

    Guess what? These researchers observed that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two locations Revelation says the mark will be placed) are not just the most convenient locations, but are additionally the only viable locations for fast, steady temperature fluctuations inside the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is about 7 millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the dimensions of a grain of rice. It’s capable of holding pages upon pages of data you. All your common records, work data, crime history, health information, and financial data could be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this RFID microchip, which he regretfully helped bring forth, is the “mark of the beast” spoke of in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which is defined as a “scratch or etching.” Additionally it’s interesting to be aware that the number 666 is in fact a word in the original Greek. This word being “chi xi stigma,” with the final word, “stigma,” additionally meaning “to stick or prick. Mr. Sanders believes this is alluding to using a hypodermic needle being poked in the human flesh to insert the chip.”

    Carl asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained in the RFID microchip leaked into the human body. The doctor responded by saying a terrible sore would arise in that spot. This is what the scriptures of Revelation 16:2 says:

    “And the first went and poured out his bowl into the land— and a bad and evil sore came upon the people having the mark of the beast and the ones giving worship to his image” (Revelation 16:2 DLNT).

    God’s word tells us that we will not be able to buy or sell without accepting the mark of the beast, or the number of its name. This number is identified as 666. Scripture tells us to calculate the number 666. How do we count 666?

    This is where it all tops off. Calculating the number 666 has been long debated throughout the past, but has finally been revealed in these last days by the Holy Spirit. What you will read confirms itself with the word of God the true interpretation to count 666.

    Throughout the Bible, God uses the number 3 as confirmation of things. A few examples are shared below:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    What is interesting is the the mark of the beast is revealed in detail in 3 separate verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists three different examples of the given subject. The final 3 being the number 6 used 3 times in a row. Here is a key point to deciphering how to calculate the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point concerning God confirming in 3’s. So logically, what would be the most rational way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. It is not sensible to count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also revert us back to the beginning. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only logical option is 6+6+6=18. What is fascinating is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the 3rd verse out of three verses that describe the mark. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another fascinating point is the only two other possible combinations (making a total of 3 possible combinations) for moving the “+” symbol in between the sixes are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Count up both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in God’s word where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    If we add up all three numbers by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around in all three possible combinations, we would get 72+72+18=162. What is fascinating concerning the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name for Jesus in Greek gematria calculates to 888. The New Testament was originally written in Greek. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb of God who is Jesus.

    Now what is fascinating concerning the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the exact formulation to get the number 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the quantity 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.

    With utilizing the identical formula of counting by including the plus symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?

    Another interesting point to observe is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? May this be a sign that we ought to add up three sixes rather than perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what might this mean? We know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. Starting from our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being identified founded on a system of ruler ship. So it’s conceivable that this RFID chip will comprise a new identification that has a complete total of 18 characters.

    Could this be the title of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that’s recognized by 18 characters? This is able to match the scriptures that speaks of a mark that we ought to have to buy or sell in our right-hand or forehead, and that it also carries the number of the beast, in the course of a future cashless money society.

    The Bible warns us in the end times that a false prophet will stand up doing miracles to deceive many to receive this mark:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    Whatever it takes, DO NOT RECEIVE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We’re residing in very prophetic times with very important Biblical prophecies coming to pass. When Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as capital of Israel in December of 2017, this was a big step to fulfill the Third Temple prophesied within the the scriptures.

    God’s Holy scriptures warns us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    Inside the Islamic faith, there is a figure referred to as the Mahdi, referred to as their messiah who they’re awaiting to appear. There are a number of testimonies from people on line who consider this man will be Barack Obama who may be the biblical Antichrist. I have had strange dreams concerning Barack Obama. He came on stage claiming to be a follower of Jesus with no affiliation to the Muslim religion, but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    His real name is stated to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name switched to Barack Obama. But why?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the word “Barack” means “lighting”, and the use of “Bama” (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights” of heaven.

    The following day after the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the prevailing select three lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was formerly a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whomsoever seats himself in the Third Temple that is to be built in Jerusalem, declaring themselves to be God IS THE ANTICHRIST. NEVER FORGET.

    So, why do we need Jesus Christ?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our own works can’t save our souls from the wrong we’ve committed. If we step in front of a judge, being guilty for breaking the law, the judge won’t judge us by the good that we have done, rather the crimes we’ve committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of moral justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy creator?

    God has brought down to us His ethical law’s by means of the ten commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we can be justified, however so that we might see the need for the savior. They’re the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it’s an act of evil to steal, lie, dishonor our dad and mom, and so forth.

    We can strive to observe all the ethical guidelines of the ten commandments, however we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law received by Moses was brought forth as flesh over 2000 years ago within the body of Jesus Christ. He was brought forth to be our justification by perfectly fulfilling the commandments of God, living a sinless life that only God may fulfill.

    The space between us and the law can by no means be reconciled by our own personal merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to seize hold of, by faith in Him, He’ll pull us forward being the one to justify us. As inside the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your fine, despite the fact that you are guilty, the judge can do what’s legal and just and allow you to go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled inside the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His final words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    So why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not be brushed away. Because of the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it ought to be reconciled, it ought to be quenched and satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the dying of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). That is why in Isaiah chapter 53, the place it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    That is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it were to be poured out upon us who have earned it, we would all perish and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not stay in Hades, however was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    Now after we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer see’s the man or woman who deserves His wrath, but now the glorious image of His perfect Son living inside our hearts, justifying us as if we obtained the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we must do is turn from our sins and trust in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, howeverrather receiving His words, taking them to heart. In which we no longer live to practice sin, however turn from our sins and practice righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we will become transformed into the image of God by faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who is willing to present the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    So what are you waiting for? Our heavenly Father only desires the best for us, restoring every little thing this world has stolen from us. That is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.

    He is ready to hear from you. That God given tongue to speak language, by way of faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you receive the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you need His Holy Spirit living inside you transforming you into a child of God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you realize that Jesus spoke more about hell than anyone else in the word of God, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very reason He was brought forth to die for us, to rescue us from this place that we earned by our sins against a holy God.

    He describes hell as a real place where,

    “Their worm does not die
    And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    With all the world religions, how can we make sure the Bible got it right? The scientific data has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning in which space, time and matter had been created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it all correct that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it also states in 7 different places that the universe is in a continuous state of expansion 1000’s of years before scientists found out these facts.

    Did you hear that the real Noah’s Ark was found where the Bible told us it’d be with the right dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the Exodus event of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is by far the most translated and studied document in the history of the world, full of predictive prophecies, matching what we find within the book of nature. Wouldn’t you expect God’s word to be so?
