We should look at the regeneration of the sun. The arising of the sun from the dead.

It was always about the Sun, as it departed, so will it return.

World in flames: why are protests raging around the globe?

https://www.rt.com/news/471443-protests-spread-worldwide-response-/


Protests and demonstrations have rocked every corner of the world in recent days, with tax hikes, corruption and supposed environmental injustice all raising public anger. But why have they spread?

Watching the news over the last week, one would be convinced that the world has devolved into a series of flashpoints, with corrupt governments across the political spectrum facing the wrath of their enraged citizens. To be fair, that’s not far from the truth.

Four continents have seen anti-government demonstrations over the last week, many of them sparked by seemingly innocuous taxes or changes to the law. In Lebanon, protesters have set Beirut ablaze in response to a proposed fee of 20 cents per day on internet voice calls, dubbed the “WhatsApp tax.” Chileans set metro stations on fire following a $1.17 increase in public transport fares, and the streets of Ecuador are filled with rubble after a planned removal of fuel subsidies triggered mass unrest.

Elsewhere, perennial corruption has the West African nation of Liberia in a state of near-constant protest; a change to presidential term limits in Guinea caused deadly riots; Mexicans are demonstrating against corruption and drug cartel violence; and masked rioters in Hong Kong are still rallying against their government, months after the withdrawal of the Chinese extradition bill that sparked their anger.

Europe, meanwhile, has seen a general strike and mass marches in Barcelona following the jailing of Catalonian independence leaders on Monday. Dutch farmers have also shut down the country’s motorways after the government introduced new emissions regulations; and in France, already rocked by almost a year of ‘Yellow Vests’ demonstrations, thousands of firefighters have marched for more funding and better working conditions.

Protests can break out over a relatively minor issue, before spiralling into national crises. French President Emmanuel Macron learned this the hard way last November, when demonstrations over a fuel tax hike turned into a nationwide rejection of his corporate-friendly policies. Likewise, Lebanon’s “WhatsApp tax” was simply the final straw for protesters, who have now called for “the downfall of the regime,” following years of perceived government ineptitude.

And, while Chilean students kicked off the fare-hike protests earlier this month, violent anti-government riots have since broken out, with at least eight people killed in arson and looting attacks, and the military were called out to enforce a curfew.

It’s contagious

So why has unrest seemingly erupted all over the world at once? According to a University of Arizona study, protest is contagious. The study’s authors found that “violent domestic conflicts spread between countries via spillover effects and the desire to emulate events abroad.” Non-violent movements too spread across borders in a similar fashion, with the researchers noting that “observation of collective action abroad” inspires would-be protesters at home.

The Chinese government has pointed the finger squarely at Hong Kong for inspiring similar protests elsewhere. An editorial in the state-run Global Times on Sunday accused the Hong Kong demonstrators of "exporting revolution to the world,” while former Chinese diplomat Wang Zhen wrote in the Beijing News that "the disastrous impact of a 'chaotic Hong Kong' has begun to influence the Western world."

Though the Chinese government has its own political reasons to publish articles condemning the Hong Kong movement, the accusation that the protesters there are “exporting revolution” is spot-on, at least if the University of Arizona study is to be believed.
A minefield

Dealing with mass unrest is a minefield for governments. Though the respective governments of Lebanon, Chile, Ecuador and Hong Kong have all canceled the measures that angered the public in the first place, protests have only intensified. This presents decision-makers with a dilemma: signal weakness by doing nothing, or inflame tensions further with a police crackdown.

Former Madison, Wisconsin Police Chief David Couper literally wrote the book on handling protests. In ‘Arrested Development,’ Couper wrote that he would instruct his officers to “get in close, talk, stay in contact” with demonstrators, as he found that “the further the police positioned themselves from people in the crowd, the greater the chance the crowd would depersonalize them.”

Similarly, former Washington DC Police Chief Jerry Wilson told author Radley Balko that he would hide his riot-control teams away on buses until needed, as the mere presence of heavily-armed cops “didn’t prevent confrontation, it invited it.”

This cautious approach has not been taken by Chile, whose president Sebastian Pinera declared “We are at war against a powerful enemy, who is willing to use violence without any limits,” and summoned up thousands of troops to patrol the streets. Nor has it been taken by Ecuador’s Lenin Moreno, who announced the “militarization” of the capital, Quito, and authorized “the use of public force” to clear the streets of protesters.

While the state cannot allow destruction and looting, a heavy-handed crackdown can backfire, as happened in France when images of wounded and maimed protesters gave the Yellow Vests a new issue to rally around, and mired the government and police forces in legal action.

Moreover, giving in to the protesters’ demands is one thing, but it’s another when rival groups of demonstrators demand clashing measures. While Dutch farmers are fuming at being labeled a climate change threat and punished with new nitrogen emissions regulations, Extinction Rebellion eco-activists took to the streets of more than 70 cities worldwide - including Amsterdam - to demand more of precisely the same kind of regulations, up to a complete abolition of livestock farming.

Contagious, difficult to control, and often contradictory, the season of unrest gripping much of the world presents governments - even those that acquiesce to their citizens’ demands - with few easy solutions.

Ezekiel 35:5-6

Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:

6 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.


Your hatred was perpetual. You will pay for everything, as the LORD has promised.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words
Re: Jesus is coming soon. This thread is for faithful watchmen by MrPresident1: 4:27pm On Nov 04
I want to explain this passage below: As Christ rose from the dead, so also those who wait upon him, who are asleep now will also rise up when God brings him back.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

The people of Christ are asleep. God's children are asleep, God has deadened them to understanding the true word. They cannot understand it. They are Godly people, but the LORD has deliberately put them to sleep. What mercy! What love! How can they be alive to all this nonsense that satan is doing? Ahh, nooo, they cannot handle it. Love has put them to complete sleep!

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
We believe that Jesus rose up from the dead, as Christians we say it all the time. He arose from the dead. We believe, and we know that Jesus died, and also rose up from the dead.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
Paul is alive and awake, he also has risen from the dead. Somebody like Frosbel2 is likely one of those old apostles now reincarnated. The mass of the people are still asleep, but the major apostles of old are all now risen from the dead-Paul, Amos, Timothy, Abraham, Deborah, James, John, Samson, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Peter, Mathew, Luke etc- they are all right now on the earth, moving and walking incognito. They trust God, they obey him, but they will not have the bullshit of organized religion!

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
The voice of the LORD is like thunder, this is the voice of the archangel. When the thunder of the LORD tears the heavens, the sound will snap the sleeping people out of their dreams! The trump of God is the sound of his victory. The trump of satan is mere words, the trump of God is earth shattering thunder!

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

You see, Paul is saying ''we which are alive'', so he is telling us that he, in addition with others, will be alive at that time. How does he mean ''to be alive''? Well, it means he will see above and beyond all the shenanigans of organized religion. These people will have the true fear of God because God has shown himself to them, but you will not find them to be overtly religious people. They may be religious, but not that kind of mumu or dubious religiosity that is so pervading nowadays. To be caught up in the clouds and to be with the LORD in the air does not mean that anyone will be levitating to the moon or God knows where, it simply means there will be a displacement reaction, Christ will take over rulership, and all the saved will be co-rulers with him Ephesians 2:2

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words
We will continue to comfort ourselves with these blessed words and promises until God brings Jesus to us, and Christ is revealed from among us

3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

The first way to understand scriptures is to take it literally. It is also helpful to read other translations


1Th 4:13 — 1Th 4:16
The Hope of the Resurrection
And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.
We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; 

https://www.rt.com/news/473075-mercury-transit-face-of-sun/

Mercury lines up to transit the Sun for LAST TIME until 2032: Here’s what you need to know

The orbital pattern of Mercury is set to bring it between Earth and the Sun on Monday, with millions of people potentially being able to watch the transit as it unfolds.

Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system (since poor Pluto was downgraded) and lies closest to the Sun, with its daytime temperatures hitting a beyond-sweltering 800 degrees Fahrenheit (427 degrees Celsius).

What is a planet’s ‘transit’?

On Monday, Mercury will pass between Earth and our star, appearing as a tiny dark spot traveling across the solar surface. In effect, a planetary ‘transit’ happens when any planet passes between an outer planet (meaning one that’s further away from the Sun than it is) and the Sun.

You are right that the first way to understand the Scriptures is to take it literally. In school, there is Nursery, Primary, Junior Secondary, Senior Secondary, O levels, A levels, BSC, Masters, PHD, Professorship chairs, Emeritus, all of them are levels. So also is scriptures. The starting point is milk for babies which is the literal interpretation.

As you can see, Peter advices babies to desire the sincere milk of the Word, in order to grow

1 Peter 2:2
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

There is milk and there is meat. The first principles of the oracles of God is milk. Strong meat is for those that are full of age, mature. Milk is for babies
