Conversations with Melchizedek – Fulfillment of Prophecy – Where do we go from here?

Unite and Fight or Fragment and Fold

It was a little over a year ago the Melchizedek prophecies began and forecast a series of unusual events in the immediate future including the beginning of a year of devastating weather anomalies beginning in August and September of 2017.

The intensity of weather patterns would defy all known forecasting models and techniques and a series of weather anomalies would shatter weather records throughout the world.

It would begin with devastating winds coming off the seas, not just resulting in record hurricanes but causing these huge storms to defy forecasting as well as physics and logic.

The assault of hurricanes since late summer certainly did that shattering records and performing incomprehensible physical deviations.  For example, the massive Gulf Coast Houston storm made two complete circles over the Houston area delaying its departure for two days and leaving behind staggering flood damage with flood waters measured in feet, not inches.

Then a series of hurricanes hit Florida and the East Coast after demolishing the islands and nations of the Caribbean, damage still trying to be fixed today.  As a powerful hurricane swept straight up the Florida peninsula a second hurricane stopped dead in the waters off New England while a third pushed them from behind.

Clearly the gods are angry.

Before the winds of destruction from the Gulf Coast and Atlantic Ocean had subsided a new assault from the winds exploded in flames in the west, and the State of California was in a fight for survival.  Wildfires struck with a vengeance catching the West Coast by surprise as the Santa Ana winds in Southern California and Diablo winds of Northern California began a brutal path of destruction in their march to the sea.

As the raging fires engulfed the west coast a bone chilling record cold swept over the Midwest and East Coast from Chicago to Atlanta to New England powered by Canadian Clippers Nor’ Easter, and Lake effect winds, accompanied by piercing temperature drops.  Much of the Eastern half of the nation was a frozen winter wonderland.

Then came the torrential rains in California and the fires of Hell scorching the landscape became massive floods and mudslides destroying anything in their path.  To this day we are still digging out from the mud.

We are now halfway through the year of strange weather anomalies Melchizedek warned us about, already reeling from a ten-fold increase in families seeking disaster aid, over $100 billion in federal disaster assistance, property damage of over $300 billion, with another $1 billion in damage from the California wildfires expected.

What next?

Melchizedek said the initial onslaught would shift to the “ground shaking” in ways not experienced in our lifetimes.  The North Korean nuclear tests have already resulted in unexpected earthquakes on the North Korea and China border.

He also said there would be a sign in the skies of Michigan that would stun the people and scientists with objects blazing a fire trail in the sky as they fall from the heavens and look as if they will crash into the Earth.  The extraordinary light would illuminate the darkness and be seen by many.

Just this morning there was the following headlines;

Earthquake-causing meteor leaves southeast Michigan residents awestruck

2 mins · 
FLASH OF LIGHT: Experts say a bright light and what sounded like thunder in the sky above Michigan was a meteor. More:
Have you ever seen anything like this?

A meteor exploded so close to Michigan that it shook houses and lit up the night sky

Witnesses from Chicago, Northern Indiana and Canada, all bordering Michigan, filmed it.  Was it a series of meteors hitting all at once or one huge meteor?  Forty miles from Detroit a 2.1 earthquake was triggered at the same moment.  Some witnesses say it crashed into Lake Michigan.

Is this the strange light from the heavens over Michigan Melchizedek foretold?  News reports today are filled with reports f the strange lights in the sky, the blazing trail toward earth, and a brilliant explosion that rocked the earth and caused a 2.1 earthquake.

Everything that has happened recently including unlikely side stories or shows like the EU referendum or Brexit vote in the UK, the stunning election upset by Trump, and the bizarre and threatening behavior of North Korea were also predicted, reported in advance, and happened.

What further remains?  More anomalies relating to the light show in Michigan.  We are transitioning into a period where the ground will be shaking all around the world with earthquakes in the Midwest US, China, India, and the Middle East.  There will be a great loss of lives in the coming storms and disasters.

By the time we reach September of 2018 everyone will be aware that what is taking place is far greater than odd weather cycles, than weather anomalies, than climate change could cause.

Earth has reached a critical point in spiritual evolution and has failed to see the light.  We are blinded by the gold of money and not the golden glow of the heart of the Father.  If we do not get back on track of our own volition, the growing veil of darkness will threaten to engulf the earth.

The war between right and wrong, good and evil, in the far reaches of the heavens will pill over into our planet, Earth, causing massive chaos, destruction, loss of life, and a breakdown of institutions.

You see, what happens on earth reverberates throughout the galaxies of Creation.  The failure of our governments and people to connect the dots between our actions and the spiritual consequences, will not be allow to take place by the universe.

Already underway is a massive infusion of the legions of Michael’s Angels into the Earth plane as well as the arrival of aliens from other worlds to battle the darkness and restore the spiritual evolution we have lost.

The battle could rage for decades.

This is not the End Times, though many may wish it was.  It will lead to a worldwide awakening that reminds us we are a small microcosm of the universes, where polarity thrives and a delicate balance must be restored to save the galaxies and inhabitants of all Creation.

The time has come to see through the Maya, the illusion, and seek out the truth.  The people on earth may be a hodge-podge of diverse sexes, cultures, religions, races, tribes, and jumbled ethnicity, but in the eyes of the Creator we are One, just like the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  We are One, humankind, to the Creator and those outside our little world.  Perhaps awareness of the dark side, the angels, and the aliens will help wake us up.

We must become One again, as we were in the beginning, so together we can save our world and the people living here.  In doing so we will fulfill our sacred covenant with the Creator, and do our part for the good not just of earth but all of Creation.

Your awakening and your help are desperately needed to save the planet and save the people, all the people.

Here are video reports of the incident that caused quite a commotion in social media.

Humility – Can I Be Proud of My Humility


Humility, the art of being humble.  Sounds simple enough but what does it really mean? 

Good old Ben Franklin had his ideas.  He once wrote about how he decided he needed to work to overcome the Seven Deadly Sins, number one of which is Pride.  After conquering six of the seven, only pride remained, the worst of all deadly sins.  So, he focused on his humility, and in time realized it was hopeless, he could never conquer pride.  Because when he did conquer pride with his humility, he had to be proud of his humility.

Well Ben is not the only one to be frustrated with the pursuit of happiness and overcoming of sins.  But first, what is the basis of the Seven Deadly Sins and Cardinal Virtues?  Contrary to popular opinion, there is no Biblical basis for either list.  Nowhere in the Bible or Teaching of Jesus does scripture say here are the lists.

Of course, there is encouragement to master them but not in the form of a list, just in references to individual sins and virtues throughout the Old and New Testament.  So, they were made up along the way in order to encourage people to focus on sins. 

History of Seven Deadly Sins

The seven deadly sins were first compiled by Pope Gregory I around the year 600. They are pride, greed, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy, and sloth. Gregory also compiled a list of the seven virtues: faith, hope, charity, justice, prudence, temperance, and fortitude. The Bible would validate all of these concepts, but nowhere are they recorded in a list like this and nowhere in the Bible are they specifically referred to as the seven deadly sins or seven virtues.

They do not predate the Ten Commandments which were given at Mt. Sinai around 1450 B.C. It is probably true that they were used extensively to teach principles from God's Word, particularly in the centuries before the invention of the printing press when the Bible was not available for the common man to read and study.

History of the Seven Cardinal Virtues

In the book, “The Seven Cardinal Virtues” Stalker traces the origins of the seven virtues to ancient Greece, written by Aristotle and Plato.  In fact, the Greek philosophers identified the four virtues of wisdom, justice, temperance, and courage as crucial for a person to imbibe.  Later when the New Testament was studied more intently three more virtues were added, charity, hope and faith.  Hence it is common to refer to the initial four virtues as the Cardinal virtues while the later three are termed the Theological virtues.

The origin of the seven heavenly virtues can be traced to the Epic Poem, Psychopathic, containing the battle of the virtues and vices, written in AD 410 by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius. This popular work of the Middle Ages helped in propagating the concept of good virtues against the evil vices across Europe. One could be untouched by the seven deadly sins by inculcating the seven heavenly virtues.

Contribution of the Great Philosophers to the lists

Since they were first presented around the year 600 and 410, and the sins were based on earlier teaching of Aristotle and Plato.  How interesting that two of the most famous philosophers in history laid the foundation for the Christian sins and virtues and they lived between 300 and 470 years before Jesus.  I consider Socrates the third of the most influential philosophers in history and it does not hurt to look at the relationship between the three since their careers overlapped.    
  • Socrates is mostly known through the accounts of classical Greek writers, but Plato describes him as his teacher.
  • Plato’s Academy (AKA the Academy) was founded by Plato in circa 387 BC in Athens.
  • At seventeen or eighteen years of age, Aristotle joined Plato’s Academy in Athens and remained there until the age of thirty-seven (c. 347 BC).
  • Aristotle left Athens and, at the request of Philip of Macedon, tutored Alexander the Great beginning in c. 343 BC.

Socrates, born in Athens in 470 BC, is often credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy. The cloud of mystery surrounding his life and philosophical viewpoints propose a problem; a problem so large that it’s given a name itself: The Socratic Problem. Since he did not write philosophical texts, all knowledge related to him is entirely dependent on the writings of other people of the time period. 

Plato, student of Socrates, also has mystery surrounding him. His birth day is estimated to fall between 428 BC and 423 BC. He’s known for being the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

Aristotle, student of Plato, lived from 384 BC-322 BC. At eighteen, he joined Plato’s Academy in Athens and remained there until the age of thirty-seven. There, he honed his talents of understanding the world.

These three laid the foundations of many of the beliefs of the rest of the Western world. Philosophers such as John Locker and Descartes use the theories these brilliant minds brought forth in their own works.  What a remarkable century when all three walked the earth.

So back to my mission, humility, I have now destroyed any Biblical origin for the list of sins and virtues and traced their origins to three centuries before Jesus amidst a group of pagan scholars who explained about everything in the world.

All my life I have been fascinated at how three such brilliant and productive people could have been on Earth during the same period and had such a lasting impact on everything we do today, nearly 2,500 years later.  It was almost as if God sent these “adepts” to change the world and get it back on track.  Not unlike the chaos of today.

Back to the Lists of Today

Regardless of the source, we have these lists because the Church liked the idea of such things, it was a new way to generate money for the Church through the sale of indulgences, and it was only appropriate to tie these famous heathen scholars to the Church for credibility.

Pride is the deadliest of the deadly sins, and pride can only be counteracted with humility.  Certainly, humility is the polar opposite of pride, thus satisfying the need for polarization in Creation while attacking the number one deadly sin.

However, it leaves me a bit perplexed because there are some pretty extreme acts of pride that can be committed, so are there parallel extreme acts of humility needed to offset the extreme acts of pride?  If so, does that mean humility can be deployed as a means of targeting and defeating pride, adjusting to whatever extremes pride throws its way?

I tend to view humility in a more passive way that is not interest in beating down and punishing the opposition, whether it be pride in the form of conceit, self-confidence, self-importance, arrogance, or stupidity.  To me pride agitates, humility calms, it works to bring things back in balance.

Somehow it instinctively seeks out and finds the middle ground, the compromise, and quickly shepherds the far more aggressive and obvious aspects of pride to that point.  Humility can be a very deceptive and decisive tool in your weaponry.  Often underestimated, always overlooked, it prefers to operate in silence, invisibly avoiding attention.

While humility seems to be desperately needed because of the vast legions of cocky, chest-thumping, righteous, self-centered, conceited know-it-alls inhabiting our world, it might be better used and more successful at helping those who are good but need some guidance.

Why do I say that, because there is an aspect of humility that can be counter-productive to the teachings of Jesus, and can be a tool of the Dark Side to disrupt the path of the righteous when seeking Our Father?

Often the greatest progress on the Road to Kingdom Come can result from removing obstacles to your path rather than learning new things.  Since the entire spectrum of sin deals with a reality or dimension beyond our everyday physical life on Earth, it plays out more as metaphysical warfare in the ethers of space.

Most sins are an emotional rejection of truth that then are manifested in your physical reality.  The emotional rejection of right is played out in the mind of the sinner where free will makes a choice counter to the teachings of Jesus.

Stop for a minute and ask yourself, what in the world does humble little me have that would be of interest to Satan and the Dark Side.  Well humble little you just refused in that assessment to recognize your power, your strength, and your road to salvation.

What you have, what you have forgotten, and what you must find and remember, is the perfect love of Our Father, the Creator.  That astonishing miracle comes to you in the form of your Creation, duh!!!, in the gifts Father Creator has embedded in you, in the Father’s desire to see you use those gifts to help others find the way back to the garden, and in receiving (but not yet acknowledging) the Perfect love of the Father for all of Creation.

So, what is an obstacle to your purpose and mission in life?  It would be so easy for anyone associated with the Dark Side to use humility as a ploy to convince you that it would be egotistical or conceited to think you could excel above all others in anything in your life.  Or to say you cannot fulfill the Father’s desires for you to use those gifts, because you might give people the impression you know what is best for people.

Jesus never needed pages and pages of laws, rules, orders, definitions, and court rulings to determine what is right and wrong.  Why do we need such things?  People who preach conformity, preach normality, preach continuity, have forgotten Our Father is perfection and there is no reason his creations cannot represent perfection.  In fact, his desire is for you to achieve perfection in the gifts he gave you.

People who press the issue of humility on you are trying to prohibit you from achieving the recognition from the Creator for your actions.  If it is not intentional, then they have been duped by the Dark Side to take such a stand.  They work to suppress your efforts to use the gifts of the Creator by excelling in the gifts he gave you.

Humility should be a source of inspiration and nourishment for the soul.  It cannot be a source of limitation, of being an obstacle between you and Our Father’s desires for you.  Humility means you acknowledge the love and gifts of the Creator and excel in your use of them to help, or inspire others.  That is your expression of thanks, that is what the Creator wants to see.

Enlightened people and those on the road to enlightenment desire to seek out the truth, and desire to please Jesus and the Father very much.  When they are successful they seem to infect people all around them with the love and grace of the Father they have received and the compassion, empathy, and spiritual growth they have attained from the teaching of Jesus.

Suzanne singing Pie Jesu

Just the mere act of turning down the volume and moderating the blood pressure in these good souls touches the people around them, radiating calmness, warm thoughts, joy, happiness, satisfaction, and respect for others.  That pleases Jesus.

People pleasing the Father and Jesus do not have to be poor, do not have to dress in rags, do not have to suffer from hunger, drug addiction, sexual abuse or anything else, in short, they do not have to be the epitome of humility forsaking all that makes them special so as not to disrupt or disturb those who are not special.

Give me a break.

Jesus was the model for humility, yet he changed water into wine, healed the sick, drove out demons, and even raised the dead.  As if that was not a sufficient example of the good in exceptionalism, he then was crucified, died, raised himself from the dead (with a little help from the Creator), then sailed off into the sky to Heaven with Moses and Elijah on either side while promising to return one day.

He taught there was nothing he did we could not do, if we just have faith.  We are all the children and Creation of Father Creator.

Seriously, we can do anything you can do?

My soul, my spirit, my heart all long to be just like Jesus, but my mind says don’t be a fool, you are not flying anywhere on your own.  I have work to do.

Fortunately, I also have a hyperactive imagination that kicks in just when my mind most needs it, when it thinks it knows everything, has all the answers, or starts to view things from a superior perspective.  The only thing that being wealthy, sophisticated, or intellectual has to do with it is to make it harder to be humble.  

Sometimes being humble is going as far as you can on three flat tires.  It is running out of gas going down the mountain rather than up the mountain.  Good things come to those who are humble up to a point, the point being when humility becomes that obstacle to your achieving perfection.  The point when it stands in the way of your full use of the gifts the Creator gave you.  The point where the Father’s desires for your success and perfection are derailed by an overzealous humility.

You must not use humility as an excuse to not seek perfection in the eyes of God and Jesus, for perfection in the perfect love of Father Creator is what the Father desires.  Nor should you use it as an excuse to mask your fear of failure, of disappointment, rejection, or just plain dumb things you may be inclined to do in the course of life.

Humility can be mastered without sacrificing the expectation, desires, and love of the Father.  There is nothing wrong with being right, nothing weak about being strong, nothing bad about being good.

Do I ignore the effort I put into being good at what I do?  Do I reject as excessive the knowledge I learn about something in order to excel?  Do I discount the lessons I learned, both good and bad, from my experiences?  Do I, in the interest of being humble, let other people take credit for what I create?

If I did it might be the “humble” way to approach life in order to master humility, but does it please the Father, who is perfection?  That don’t seem right to me, the title of a song I wrote.

It sits on a shelf with a few hundred other songs I wrote, victims of my humble view of myself as a prolific writer, poet, or composer.  That seems like an extreme use of humility, to deny myself the opportunity to share a part of my heart and soul with you through music.

I’m counting on getting over that notion before Judgement Day.

Yet another problem with humility I see is it puts a great big bullseye on your back for those of the Dark Side to find you, because they live to disrupt the salvation of all souls, especially yours, and block any actions pleasing to God.

That sucks too.

In the end we have to strike a balance in our lives.  We honor the Father by using the gifts he gave us to the best of our ability.  We please Our Father by doing whatever we do in a humble way.  We succeed in our mission when miracles do happen.

Kind of a sharp contrast or dilemma, excel or not, succeed or not, be who we think we are or we think we are meant to be.

In closing, let me share an experience that demonstrates what I mean.  Once I met a young woman who was the pinnacle of perfection, as I know it.  She lived in a state of Grace.  Somehow, her transfiguration was achieved early in life or she was born with it.

She loved and served Jesus, talked to him every day, and did nothing without asking his permission first.  Suzanne was the epitome of humility, safely secure within a state of Grace, and she was happy, fearless, and lived for the moment.  At the same time she radiated that golden glow of Father Creator to a degree that she was virtually invisible to most around her.

I spent many hours talking to her, knowing that her time with me would be short as so many people needed her message of inspiration, hope and joy.  Always she had a soft smile for everyone and never pushed an agenda of what they needed to be saved.  Her dress was humble and understated her beauty and remarkable faith in Jesus.

Shortly before she left to continue her journey, she said she played the harp and loved to sing to the Lord and Jesus.  As she prepared to drive away, she gave me a CD and said I might enjoy it.

It was her, playing beautiful music on her harp, singing angelic songs and praising Jesus and the Lord.  There was accompaniment from some nuns and minimal music so as not to interfere with the message.   The recording was clearly done in a magnificent Cathedral.

The sound was the most soothing, beautiful, well produced album I ever heard. Mind you I had a lot of involvement in Christian and Gospel music working in the industry in Nashville and doing sessions in some exceptional studios.  A nationwide radio show I created featured and introduced many Christian artists to the world.

Suzanne singing How Great Thou Art
The album Suzanne gave me was at the top of the charts from my perspective, a magical voice with perfect pitch, and a production second to none.  I listened to the CD after she left.  Then I looked at the disc.  She titled the album “My Soul Magnifies the Lord,” half the songs were called “Quiet Meditations” and half were called “Sacred Hymns.”   It was a masterpiece, and her name was nowhere to be found on the CD or cover.

A year later she wrote and told me she wanted to share her gifts, but not attention for performing them as it might distract from the message in the music.  No greater proper and perfect demonstration of humility could be found, and all it took was an angel to show me the way.  

In summary, if humility was the answer it would be a Cardinal Virtue, but it did not make the cut.  However, there is a time and place for it as long as you do not let it stop you from seeking perfection in the gifts you received from the Creator, from trying to live up to the Creator’s desires for you, and from finding joy and happiness in our world.

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - Civil Rights Icon and Prophet on the future of America!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Born January 15, 1929 - Died April 4, 1968

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I have decided to stick to love...Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"
                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away, and that in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty."
                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” 
                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every tenement and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."

                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies - or else?  The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation."
                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”

                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, "Love your enemies." It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies.
                                                Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
