Revelation 12 Update

13 Sep

It bothered me that with my last presentation about revelation 12 that I wasn’t able to say for definite how often the conjunction of the 3 planets Mercury, Mars and Venus occurred. For the last few weeks I have been running different Iterations through the astronomy program Stellarium looking for  how often the conjunction of these three planets happened in Leo.
The conjunction needs to happen when Jupiter is in Virgo so that it fits the description in Revelation 12. Jupiter is in Virgo every 11.85 years. Then it could happen at each 12 year period . but it doesn’t. between 3BC and 2017 AD there are 170 times that Jupiter has been in Virgo. I will slowly look through each of these times to see if the conjunction happens at any other time.

Thanks to Micheal Hieser we know that it happened on September 11 3 BC and it will happen again on the 23 September 2017.  So that is about 2020 years apart. SO it at least happens every 2020 years. To prove this I went back to 4023 and we have the same conjunction. so it seems to hold that it happens about every 2020 years. Steve Cioccolanti has found another alignment near to 6000BC. I cant remember the exact youtube video that he mentions it in its either this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XA6JcY-ikec or this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GrZo4aKeMg.
I hedging my bets here some say that the rapture of the church will happen on this day or just before. As stated in the last video I don’t think there is any thing significant in this that is conjunction in the  the sky.  I’m happy to be wrong and be raptured to be with Christ.
I will keep looking to see if there are any other times this junction has happened

Graylife 01 Surviving life

30 Aug

I consider myself a survivor Many people don’t know what I’ve had to get through to still be here today. I was born with transient IGA deficiency. Immuno Gobulean A (IGa) is part of bodies immune response to fight off infections. The other common ones are IGe , IGgand IGm IGd
IGa is mainly involved with the mucus membranes, it protects it form b=getting infections. https://primaryimmune.org/about-primary-immunodeficiencies/specific-disease-types/selective-iga-deficiency

I was Ok for the first year of my Life probably because I was breast fed and getting my mothers Immunity.  Once that wore off I became very sick and nearly died. To solve the problem I was put on continueas courses of antibiotics. Still i would sometimes get sick mainly bronchitis. This lasted off and on till I was four

Sometimes I wish that I hadn’t been born in this modern age of antibiotics in the old days I probably would have died, Then I would have been spared the suffering that I’ve had to go through in the rest of my life and since I would have died as a child I would have gone strait to heaven to be at Gods side.

But then I’m also glad that I live at this time I think of all the great advancements that have happened just in my life time and I’m grateful to have been able to experience then and see were the world is going.

The scriptures call the last days the great and dreadful day of the lord I think that’s because it will be great for some and dreadful for others.

I wont go on for now but suffice to say that if transient IGa had been all that went wrong medically i would have been ok with it but it was just  the start of a long life with all to frequent medical diagnoses for different Illnesses.

Giving yourself outs. 

17 Aug

On the radio today I heard a guy talking about why he couldnt give up smoking. He said that he had tried many times but just didn’t have the will power.  It got me thinking he was giving himself an out for failing. 

In some ways we all do this. I didnt get that job for xyz reasons. They are just outs obsuring us from the real reason why a certain thing didnt happen that we dont want to face up to. So that when we fail we can blame the out. 

I was thinking that in a lot of ways disabilty can be used as an out. Sure with diabilty it can be a legitimate out for not doing something.  I havr no legs so i cant climb a ladder. Is a legitimate out. 

I do it my self some times i use my disability as an out for not doing rhings thar i know im perfectly capable of doing but dont feel like it that day or a more common thing for me is that im too afraid. So I use my didiabilty as an out.  

It really annoys me when perfectly capable people use outs for no good reason. Im sure they think its a good reason. The guy on the radio and his lacking will power reason. Its an out for failing before you have even failed. 

I dont really know how to word what I’m thinking.  To me its a predermined outcome in one of two ways if you try and then fail the out is there to mask why u really failed

Or the out can stop u from teying anything that you know your going to fail at. So a person would only end up doing things they are good at or if they feel like they are good at nothing they’lljust sit around and turn into a blob. 

Instead of having outs we should acknowledge our strengths and weakness. I come from a long line of short people so i acknowledge that basketball isnt something that is going to come easy to me. If i want to be a basketballer then I’ll have to acknowledge that weakness. If i wanted to play basketball i could use my families short stature as an out. Insteas i could focus on my small size being an advantage . 

Its all in how we see life. Do we use outs to avoid living life and pushing ourselves . Instead we can get rid of outs and rise to the challenge.  

Life isnt always Black and White

5 Aug

There is a new platform called Steemit. that I though I would start to post on so that I would be able to have a bigger social media presence.

Its always hard to find a way to introduce my self. I’m such a complex person who has had a lot of experiences in life. Which if I said one thing might prejudice some people but if I said something else it might prejudice others against me.

I feel that in today’s society we are gravitating to the extremes of left and right. Its why I called my channel graymatters for two reasons it a play on my name and also because the center the gray area between the two extremes matters.

I started life as a Mormon. I sort of got board of that in the late 1990’s.I still kept going hoping things would get better. I also dont like to ditch things that I have put a lot of time and effort into . I am an optimistic person so I stick with it hoping that things will eventually get better. I have had to many experiences to ditch Mormonism.
I have a gift that I will not go into at this time. while researching how to control this gift I got involved with Gnosticism. But when I heard that the leader was getting his info from a demon I dropped that but kept exploring on my own. They taught that on;y one person at a time could be on the road to enlightenment. The leader was given this info by a demon he was quite open that he was a demon but he told the leader that he’d decide to renounce Satan and follow God. but a lot of what they taught was contrary to the gospel.

I found that the experiences that I had made the gospel be more alive and more real. I know that there is a spirit world. I have been there. I also know that demons and the adversary are real I have battled with some of them.

I want to hedge my bets so I still consider myself an Atypical Mormon. I go to church most weeks. I am slightly left of center. I believe that both sides of the political spectrum have some useful attributes that I can incorporate into my life. My experiences give me a unique outlook on life. I feel that I have a story to tell that some others might be interested in.

Collectivism vs Individualism 

9 Jul

It occured to me the other day that most global problems can be divided between either collectivism or insividualism. Maybe its a long bow to draw but this dichotomy could come down to the difference between Catholicisism and Protestantism. One empathizes collectivism the other individuals. Superficially it seems that those countries that were Catholic the longest are those that embraced communism and democratic socialism.  Those that were predominantly protestant became predominantly fascist or democratic capitalists.

China however is a different example. Confucius empathized the importance of the state which parrels what is taught by communism. 

Until this conflict can be understood there can be no way of solving the problems present in todays societies. At least a balance needs to be reached between the two extremes of the spectrum.  

Research funding plea

26 Jun

This will the transcript for a future video that I I will make to request money for my research activities. I have been thinking about how to go about this for a while. upon waking this morning the words just came to me. I need to write them down before I forget them.
I’ll use a crowd funding site like gofund me or indiegogo.

Hi I’m Dave (picture of Me) and I love this book( picture of the Book of Mormon.) The words of this book  were taken from metal plates (picture of plates) There are numerous witness that attest to the reality of the plates. ( picture of witness holding plates). Were they a 19th century pious fraud as some propose(Pic). Were they from the american heartland as others propose. (Pic) were they form Mesoaamerica as most propose. (pic) were they from South America as others propose(Pic) or were they from somewhere else in the world as a few propose.
Until now there was no way to really know the answer to where the plates came from.

There is an artifact in the church history museum that can possibly answer the question of where the plates came from.(Pic)

The Joseph Smith lap desk was used for a time as the place where Joseph stored the plates after translating from them each day(pic). The curator of the Church history museum has given me preliminary permission to examine the artifact.

It is possible that micro-flakes from the plates that were in Josephs possession at the time are embedded in the wood of the artifact. (pic)

I would organise to get a 3D laser scan of the artifact as there elements that can be detected that can be missed by the naked eye. (Pic)

To test this I would X-ray, CT scan and MRI the artifact looking for metallic evidence on the artifact(pic).I would perform a rubbing ( Indiana Jones pic)of the inside bottom of the artifact to see if the weight of the plates crushed the wood fibers and left a noticeable impression  Its possible that due to the length of time since the plates were in there that nothing will be found.

However if metallic micro-flakes  are found then we could move on to further examination. Samples would be taken and tested in a spectrometer. each metal has a unique spectrographic signature(pic) . This signature can be used to pinpoint where in the world the metal came from. (pic)

All this testing cost money I would love to have the money to do this without asking anyone else as  the testing could end up not giving any conclusive answers(dollarpic).

I dont have the money or the means to do the testing myself so I am asking for your help to fund this project. If the artifact tests positive for metallic residue then the implications would be immense. however the main reason to do this and help fund my project is to help forward the work of the Lord rather than seeking personal glory( pic of the Lord).

So please fund my project so we can achieve something great.

 

 

Revelation 12. Decoded Debunked.

16 Jun

I have an email newsletter called prophecy news week that gets sent to me periodically.  Lately they have been proposing that the women mentioned in Revelation  12 is a unique alignment of astronomy.  At first I thought it was pretty cool and would make a great sign heralding the latter days. http://prophecynewswatch.com/?gclid=CK_r89eawdQCFZUIKgodsA0IvQ

I love astronomy and astrology.  So I looked into it.

There interpretation is that on September 23 2017. There will be a unique coming together of features to create this sign. Of Revelation 12. A women  (Virgo ) gives birth to a child (Jupiter )has the sun i  her hand and the moon at her feet and has a crown of twelve stars (stars of Leo , plus Mercury, Venus and Mars)

How unique is this arrangement. Not as unique as I first thought I currently use the astronomy program Stellarium.

Here’s what I found

1 September is the Month of Virgo .

2. The sun will be in Virgo every year at this time .

3. The moon passes by the feet of Virgo every year.

4. It takes Jupiter 12 years to orbit the sun . Due to the shape of the constellations it is in some longer than others. It happens to be in Virgo for 9 months . Which does line up with Revelation 12 say the women was pregnant and gave birth. But it happens every twelve years so not really unique.

5. Leo as the  crown. Stellarium list there being 9 main stars in the constellation of Leo,but other astronomy programs and skymaps give give 10 and 11 stars in Leo. If you then add the 3 planets simple maths gives u more than 12 stars in the crown.

6 Mercury, Venus and Mars all orbit close to the sun so were the sun is  they will be relatively close by.

7 The constellation of Virgo on that day will be on the horizon. So most of the aspects listed above will be block by the brightness of the setting sun. Its only if you know what  to look for that you’d be able to see the so called great sign.

There is nothing special about the sign I think that its being used as away to drum up fear by people who make money off of scaring people that the Lord will be coming soon.

Micheal Hieser has a different view on what Revelation 12 means. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddZ90HcNahg

The traditional view of this Chapter is that it is symbolic That the women represents  Israel and that the child that is born is either Jesus or the church.

I hope this has clarified what this chapter means and that people are more informed.
