Why Fringe Friday? Because sometimes I explore around the fringe. I’ve been known to spend a lot of time listening to people who are on the fringe when it comes to things that occur around the globe. Someday they may not be considered fringe but mainstream. UFO’s well, they do exist but they aren’t what many think. There are no aliens from another planet, star system or whatever. These are inter-dimensional craft most likely technology from the fallen angels of Biblical reference. More people in the Christian community are coming to this conclusion. Eventually they will be part of what the Bible tells us that men’s hearts will fail them for fear of what they see coming on the earth. (Grandma Peachy’s paraphrased version – GPPV – of Luke 21:26.)
Yesterday I read the Book of Amos during my morning devotions. The words of the twelve spies that Moses sent to suss out the land of Canaan when they reported that they had seen the sons of Anak and were like grasshoppers in comparison. (Numbers 13:33 GPPV) That means there were true giants in the land. Well, in Amos the Lord was informing Israel why he was bringing punishment on them He pointed out that He had destroyed the Amorites before them. The Amorites were described as having height as of cedars. So, I didn’t know how big cedars get so I looked it up. Most species grow to a height of 50 feet. Some, like the cedars of Lebanon referred to in scripture, grow up to 100 feet. I don’t think it’s a leap to thing that the Lord was referring to the cedars of Lebanon. Can you imagine a humanoid being of 100′ height. You’d be staring at his foot when you encountered him. That is like about 3 to 4 times the height of the standard street light. This was long after the deluge so any arguments people have that giants could not possibly live in our current environment because of gravity, or what ever, since everything changed after the flood. Scripture says they were living in the land of Canaan long after the flood and I’ll take God’s word for it.
Where is the archaeological evidence of these giants? Many think that governments and especially here in the USA the Smithsonian confiscate them to never be seen by the public ever again. I’d be interested in a full archaeological dig and report on Jericho which some think was inhabited by giants. Most giant skeletons we do hear about from old newspaper reports and such are more like 15′-18′ at most. So I ask again, where is the evidence of these giants? Don’t suppose we’ll ever know.
Then there are all the current day prophets. I’m not sure that all are actually prophets of the Lord, but, I’m pretty sure some are. It seems that there are a lot of people having dreams of destruction for the US. Others have prophetic words of revival in the US and worldwide. Either I am not very good at listening or God isn’t revealing to me which if any are true. Still I listen, even if somewhat skeptical about most.
Although, I do think that Henry Gruver’s visions are from God. He’s an amazing servant of God. His experiences walking the cities and countries of the world in prayer walks over the last 50+ years are amazing. I’ve been trying to learn as much as I can from him by listening to interviews and whatever talks and preaching that I can find. He often tells the same stories, but, always there is something different also. I love listening to him. He inspires me.
Then there are the people who are researching things hidden such as what is going on with Antarctica. Speculation about what is down there includes Nephilim in stasis. Sounds to me like a science fiction story, but, I wouldn’t be surprised at anything the evil one does. Including saving some of his fallen angel/human hybrids in a stasis chamber until it’s time for the final battle. Which he’s already lost but doesn’t seem to realize he can’t change the outcome.
The world is getting closer to the end. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Day of the Lord arrives before I lay down this mortal body. I don’t particularly expect it, but, it wouldn’t surprise me. Over a year ago God’s Holy Spirit told me that the evil that is in the world is more than any of us can imagine. Then the other day I heard a preacher say that the Lord told him that he had no idea what is in the earth, the technology of the evil one and other things. When I heard that it just brought to mind the word I had and I keep wondering just how bad it’s going to get before the end. Some think that the Christians will be out of here before, but, so far, every time I read scripture it seems pretty clear that believers who are alive will have to go through that great tribulation. I keep reading and so far nothing I read has changed my mind. It makes me wonder where the ‘pre-trib’ people get that idea. I think it’s wishful thinking. But, that is not a salvation issue so I let them have their daydreams.
Since Jan 1 2017 I’ve completed reading the Bible twice and am well past half way through reading a third time. This time however I’ve done something a little different. By the time I’ve finished Revelation this time I will have read through Psalm and Proverbs as many times as the number of months it took me to read all the rest. Dividing Psalm into 30-31 parts means about 5 chapters a day and Proverbs is already 30 chapters, so, it is convenient to read through each book once a month. I love doing it that way.
So, maybe only part of this is fringe, but, my brain has more fringe things rattling around in there than I have organized into words. Maybe once those ideas or thoughts come together more coherently I’ll write about them too.
Blessings and Have a restful Sabbath.
