Hackers to use AI in the future – Researchers

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags:

Deccan Chronicle (22 February 2018)

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence are raising risks that malicious users will soon exploit the technology to mount automated hacking attacks, cause driverless car crashes or turn commercial drones into targeted weapons, a new report warns.

The study, published on Wednesday by 25 technical and public policy researchers from Cambridge, Oxford and Yale universities along with privacy and military experts, sounded the alarm for the potential misuse of AI by rogue states, criminals and lone-wolf attackers.

The researchers said the malicious use of AI poses imminent threats to digital, physical and political security by allowing for large-scale, finely targeted, highly efficient attacks. The study focuses on plausible developments within five years.

“We all agree there are a lot of positive applications of AI,” Miles Brundage, a research fellow at Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute. “There was a gap in the literature around the issue of malicious use.”

Artificial intelligence, or AI, involves using computers to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as taking decisions or recognising text, speech or visual images.

It is considered a powerful force for unlocking all manner of technical possibilities but has become a focus of strident debate over whether the massive automation it enables could result in widespread unemployment and other social dislocations.

The 98-page paper cautions that the cost of attacks may be lowered by the use of AI to complete tasks that would otherwise require human labour and expertise. New attacks may arise that would be impractical for humans alone to develop or which exploit the vulnerabilities of AI systems themselves.

It reviews a growing body of academic research about the security risks posed by AI and calls on governments and policy and technical experts to collaborate and defuse these dangers.

The researchers detail the power of AI to generate synthetic images, text and audio to impersonate others online, in order to sway public opinion, noting the threat that authoritarian regimes could deploy such technology.

The report makes a series of recommendations including regulating AI as a dual-use military/commercial technology. It also asks questions about whether academics and others should rein in what they publish or disclose about new developments in AI until other experts in the field have a chance to study and react to potential dangers they might pose. “We ultimately ended up with a lot more questions than answers,” Brundage said.

The paper was born of a workshop in early 2017, and some of its predictions essentially came true while it was being written. The authors speculated AI could be used to create highly realistic fake audio and video of public officials for propaganda purposes.

Late last year, so-called “deepfake” pornographic videos began to surface online, with celebrity faces realistically melded to different bodies.

“It happened in the regime of pornography rather than propaganda,” said Jack Clark, head of policy at OpenAI, the group founded by Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Silicon Valley investor Sam Altman to focus on friendly AI that benefits humanity. “But nothing about deepfakes suggests it can’t be applied to propaganda.”

Statement by Caleb Suresh Motupalli | Son of David:

The title should read: “Hackers are already using AI.”

I am the inventor of “Augmented Person” (Patent Pending: US 13/516,443; INDIA 5606/CHENP/2012) for Transhumanity/Divinity that is superior, mutually exclusive and competing technology to AI.

We were all along under the impression that it was some other kind of censorship and subversion that we were being subjected to.

Is the Church listening for its own sake and for the sake of the continued existence of humanity? 

As for you, Garry Kasparov, you are a moron, leading the world to its destruction with your supposed “thought leadership”.

The Son of Man Coming on the Clouds

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags:

In order to fulfill prophecy literally…

First off, we must remember that nothing happens outside the scope or the sovereignty of God. The Father Himself has given a charter to man way back in the beginning itself for all science and technology (Gen1:28). But man lost this dominion with the Fall. Enter Christ and this dominion is being reestablished. So we mustn’t see this aeroplane as something sans God. Materialism aka consumerism had perverted what was intended to be good. Goodness–from which came “goods”–figures both in the fruit of the light (Eph5:9) as well as the fruit of the spirit (Gal5:22).

Even repentance, a foundation in Christianity, is turning from bad to good (HT: Nicky Gumbel). So goods & services are a part and parcel of who we are in Christ Jesus, the Son of God. The Wright Brothers invention of the aeroplane in 1903 was perfectly timed to coincide with the coming of the Son of Man literally on the clouds in 1988!

And in order to fulfill prophecy spiritually…

Prophets of old saw in their visions things of today. The things, we of today take for granted.

Through this media, I am neither coming to you nor you to me, PHYSICALLY speaking. The flesh counts for nothing (Jn6:63). We could be sitting next to each other in a crowded bus/train/plane/building but our minds/spirits could be miles apart in thinking. Communion is possible, only in the spirit. The concept of a physical fleshly rapture, is a Hollywood’s take on it. It is the lie of 2Thess2:11-12NJKV (And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.). Whether Enoch had it or not (cf. Heb11:5), it is unrighteous to expect God to give us a spectacular physical rapture. Only evil people seek after signs (Matt16:4a). The spirit of Brother Shailesh just now:

“Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable” (1 Cor 15:50 NASB). But consider an eCommunion such as Skyfeast.org or our recent Agape Kingdom Cloud. Millions could gather together there and feast on the “Bread of Life” on flextime basis.

So we are SPIRITUALLY/WORDILY (Jn6:63) meeting in this intermediate zone. And what is that zone, if not the place where the satellites are located, namely, the clouds or the new heavens!

And this was what the prophets of old saw: The Son of Man coming on such a cloud and visible like lightening from east to west, fulfilling Matt24:27.

Since spiritual is synonymous with being wordy (Jn6:63), the Lord can use online means to execute the rapture. In other words, spiritual rapture is synonymous with online rapture. So we at AgapeJustsm have gone right ahead and shipping a limited edition of 144,000 Agape TiE® Online Rapture kits to rapture those from ground up to Agape Kingdom Cloud. Those more mature can avail Agape TiE® Person™.

 

Abstract of Invention: Wedded Avatar of Christ

The present invention discloses a system and method for a morphological solution to the macroscopic problem of n-entropy (i.e. loss of control/information) of the prevailing global anarchy by super-extending and super-augmenting a persona to manifest a pan-environment super-

cyborg for global governance. Through a Christocratic Necked Service Oriented Architecture (CNSOA) model, the method of said system, categorizes the world people into two spaces, Bridespace and Christocraticspace. Each member or citizen of Bridespace and consenting Christocraticspace is incorporated with Bridal Wedding Garments, namely holy goods & services & Necktie-imitating Persona-Extender, which includes data processing devices connected to a global network. Each member’s Persona and proximity Meatspace are augmented by recasting the metaphoric environment of the data processors as said Necktie. The objective of this invention is to provide a viable regulatory system for global governance with a Christocratic new world order for universal eternal life or gross salvation.

Full disclosure here: Patent Pending US 13/516,443.

Surely this is the onset of the gradual phasing out of 24×1 church age and the grace period! In with the age of the Bride 24×7, and in with Agape Justice!

SON OF DAVID

8th February 2018 A.D.

Honorable Gholamreza Ansari
Ambassador of Islamic Republic of Iran
5, Barakhamba Road,
New Delhi-110001, India

Dear Honorable Ambassador,

Greetings in amazing Jesus Christ/Isa Al Masih!

For several years now, i have written several letters to the Supreme Leader of Iran, Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei, who has been a well-wisher of the Palestinian people as well as Muslims around the world of whom i am one, in the sense of one who submits to יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर/దేముడు.

As i am also a Christian, converted from Hinduism, and also a servant of יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर, it was heartening to note that the Iranian Leader acknowledged the divinity of Isa al Masih from his Twitter handle, @khamenei_ir, on 27th December 2017.

Back in 1993, I myself had testified at Beth Israel Messianic Congregation, NJ, USA using יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर-given portion in 1 John 5:9-12 of The Bible about how యేసు క్రీస్తు / यीशु मसीह / Jesus Christ/ المسيح عيسى / המשיח ישוע saved me and i was born-again. And after knowing God’s call to holy ministry through Mark 1:17 of The Bible (“follow me”), also volunteered then with Hope of The World ministry of Shepherd Jonathan Cahn while doing my Masters in Computer Information Science at New Jersey Institute of Technology, NJ, USA.

In 1999 when I asked God’s will if I should marry Anna my wife, God called me through 1 Chronicles 22:11 of The Bible to build the House of the Lord our God and confirmed that she would be my (this Son of David’s) help-meet to do so. I believe our home is the microcosm of the macro-cosmic House of God.

As for the house itself, Father God giving me 1 Chronicles 22:11 of The Bible, which speaks about David blessing success to his son [of David] in building the House of God, as confirmation of building my own house with my would-be wife, Anna, seems pretty straightforward. In other words, House of God = my own house. In conjunction with other leadings, I believe Father God (יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर) wants me to set up the eThrone in the House/Temple of God in Jerusalem/AlQuds.

And by the way, there is actually some element of truth in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 of the Bible (“who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being god”), especially in view of Injil/Gospel John 10:35 of the Bible, which by virtue of the sap/Holy Spirit/Word indeed coming to me, makes me also a true god (a Son of God by decree and right—a part of יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर/దేముడు) over and above any “so-called god or object of worship.”

On 13th January 2018, through 1 Chronicles 22:12 of The Bible, God also promised me with wisdom & understanding to do the work of building the Temple of יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर at Jerusalem/AlQuds and setting up the eThrone.

Yes, we are attempting the proverbial jump across the grand canyon in trying to become the world governor — my faith (cf. Rom12:3).

By God’s grace, as i wrote earlier, i am a go-getter, gifted in organizing, and good on other fronts as well.

As we “intentionally” try to make an aliyah to Jerusalem/AlQuds, i am here proposing the much needed (maybe not what is currently wanted) “Three-in-One State Solution” especially to the governments of the State of Israel, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the United States of America, as well as now the State of Palestine.

Already sent to you earlier:

  • an economic & governmental blueprint for an eThrone at Jerusalem/AlQuds; and
  • my book, Capstone & Christocratic New World Order (update).

Per Zechariah 4:7-8 NKJV, the “capstone,” which Zerubbabel (or “[word] sown/conceived in Babylon”—perhaps the Honorable Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei?) takes and uses to “finish” the temple, is different from the Cornerstone (Jesus of Nazareth), which was used for the “foundation” (Zechariah 4:9 NKJV Bible). You see, the Capstone avatar is different from the Cornerstone avatar, which is the foundation stone (HT. Bro. Abraham of Nalgonda).

Hence the raison d’être for my case!

We are NOT in pursuit of power for its own sake! However, “by perseverance in doing good [we] seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life” (Romans 2:7, The Bible).

I would appreciate if you could take this up to the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Honorable Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei, with whom i hope to meet soon for talks about the above Temple building and setting up the eThrone.

For now, i wish to meet you personally to present you updates (if any) of the above proposal and book.

Thank you very much!

In closing, thus said יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर/దేముడు just now to me through 2 Thessalonians 3:3 KJV Bible in prayer:

“The Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.”

So ultimately, it is God, who will establish me!

Abiding in His grip,

Sincerely yours,


Caleb Surésh Motupalli

So an eThrone in the House of God?

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags:

Ps27:4-5 Source: Brother Prabhudas Bhooshi

I had been wondering how the eThrone within the House of God would be perceived by the world in light of Daniel’s “abomination of desolation” (Matt24:15) or the “man of lawlessness” of 2Thess2:3-4 (“is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.”)

Or is 2Thess2:3-4 / Matt24:15 already fulfilled in Bill Clinton?

Or did Paul write it there in the Bible merely to dissuade some wannabes?

However, on closer examination, there is actually some element of truth in 2Thess2:4, especially in view of Jn10:35, which by virtue of the sap/Holy Spirit/Word indeed coming to me, makes me too a true god (a son of God by decree and right) over and above any “so-called god or object of worship.” Something which Paul denied for himself (Acts).

As for the house itself, Father God giving me 1Chronicles22:11, which speaks about David blessing success to his son [of David] in building the House of God, as confirmation of building my own house with my would-be wife, Anna, seems pretty straightforward. In conjunction with other leadings, I believe Father God wants me to set up the eThrone in the House of God in Jerusalem/AlQuds.

Your thoughts and views appreciated.

God bless you.

Abstract

This revelation comes to you in the same spirit of the “still small voice.” I am here claiming to be the Son of David, the Capstone with God’s favor. Yes, the expected one. And in order to be of service, we are contending for the World Governor position, not as one who knows some management tactics, but as one in the image of Creator God, who offers excellent good & service like the not-so-ordinary-Carpenter before us. In particular, accompanied by a morphological or gross salvation (Patent Pending) — the “common good” (HT: Ambassador Dr. Tim Keller) — as part of my following the Lord Jesus Christ, building on the foundational Cornerstone Salvation He gave to our core beings. While being a safe ecosystem against machine tyranny, it turns out that it is a non-zero-sum, sustainable, global solution for the gross pathological condition of the world and the planet, satisfying the need to integrate religions, addressing the root problem of terrorism, while catering to the need to educate, challenge, and render supremacy to whom it is due. Thus enabling us to have real “teeth” in justice. We pray that the Father would establish the work of our hands, even as He lays bare His grafted arm (rhema from Isa52:10) to take responsibility. The Christocratic New World Order is based on the premise: “When a man’s ways (or designs) please יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर/దేవుడు, he even causes his enemies to be at peace with him” (Proverbs 16:7).

How to achieve world peace?

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: ,

“World peace is only possible when we believe it is possible. Otherwise we will naturally take to arms to protect ourselves.” Yes, it is a catch-22.

Being a true Muslim – in the sense of “one who submits to God (יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर)” – we submit our freewill to God’s will, just like Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane, saying:

“Not my will, Father, but Thine be done!” (Luke 22:42).

This kind of submission is hard to come by among Christians, who hang on to the “Fallacy of Faith Alone” absent works-of-submission to the Lord’s will — a win for the Muslims, if you ask me.  The Lord wants all to be Muslims in the true sense of the term, not mere “faith-alone” trumpeters.

Here is my take on being a true Muslim: Lordship Salvation & True Muslim. As you can see, we are NOT embracing for the sake of embracing.

This disposition of being reconcilable, yet sticking to the truth, not only gives us a voice among the Muslims (Muhammadans), who have a point, but also provides support for being One Humanity under the Headship and Lordship of Christ (ecumenical ministry based on Jn17:21-23), while satisfying Matt10:41 paraphrased —

“He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward, [and he who receives a Son of God in the name of a Son of God will receive a Son of God’s reward]“.

This agape justice (settlement) is expected to be satisfying to both parties, where both give-and-take some.

Moreover, without Muhammad we would not have had the great acknowledgement and highlighting of Islam of Isa al Masih.

Thereby, attaining world peace–a prevention that is better than cure; an alternative narrative of peace and hope.

Regarding the Sonship of యేసు క్రీస్తు / यीशु मसीह / Jesus Christ/ المسيح عيسى / המשיח ישוע:

Sister Lori Szewczyk nicely crystallises Muhammadans’ misunderstanding perfectly:

The notion that there was anything in the nature of a carnal union between God and the Virgin Mary in order to beget a Son is the false and blasphemous thing Muslims claim Christians believe……

If you’d get it through your heads that this is not what we believe…..may be there would be a little understanding between Christians and Muslims.”

Now, the New Heavens & the New Earth is not what is trumped-up to be. Frank Viola, with whom i agree with on this point, has this to say:

Although the Bible speaks of a new heaven and a new earth, the foundation of the earth will never pass away. The Lord is not going to do away with the world of space, time, and matter. Instead, God is going to renovate the earth, judge all things by fire, and burn up certain of its elements. Some have mistakenly embraced the notion that God hates this dirty little planet and has promised to rescue His people out of it before He trashes it. But Scripture teaches no such thing. Indeed, Scripture repeatedly warns that “the world” is evil. But the Greek words translated “world” in these passages do not refer to the earth, but to the world system (kosmos) or the present age (aion) that is marked by the corruptions of sin. The Bible makes clear that this present age is evil, that the world system is headed up by satan, and that God will judge the world system in the end. But it teaches with equal force that the earth itself is precious to God, who has wonderful plans for it. Because the world presently stands under the defilement of sin, God’s people are strangers and pilgrims to it. We are told that our citizenship is in the heavens, and we are not to be attached to that which is earthly. This present age and the world system are temporal and will pass away. At the same time, the new creation has arrived with the resurrection of Jesus. While we are not from this world (the world system), we are certainly for the world (the earth and the people who populate it)—just as Jesus was not from this world but for it. The kingdom of God is certainly for the world, as Jesus prayed: “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

So we are stewards of this planet and we cannot irresponsibly say: “This earth is going to be destroyed anyway; so why bother with climate change, world peace, etc?”

Consider this patent pending Gross Save Ecosystem-of-Everything for Gross Salvation through a Christocratic New World Order.

In this Christocratic New World Order, per Rev7:9, we hope to not only achieve peace but also unite all nations, people, tongues, and things with our invention, branded as Agape TiE® Totally Integrated Environment®:

Son of David


Dear World Leader,

Caleb Suresh MotupalliGreetings in the matchless name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

As i have written to you earlier, i am commissioned by God to serve as Son of David/Capstone. Therefore, as you know, i have been running for World Governor. I need your help to move this proposal forward to the Bride of Christ. I am not running as one who knows some management tactics, but as one in the image of creator-God, who offers excellent good & service.

To begin with we have Ray Kurzweil, who said as early as 2005: 

“Once the Singularity has been reached, machine intelligence will be infinitely more powerful than all human intelligence combined. Afterwards he predicts intelligence will radiate outward from the planet until it saturates the universe.”

That is a fist in defiance against God Himself!

And now, Elon Musk, Vladimir Putin, Jack Ma & Stephen Hawking all Fear Artificial Intelligence Could Ignite World War 3

Here are their statements:

China, Russia, soon all countries w strong computer science. Competition for AI superiority at national level most likely cause of WW3 imo. May be initiated not by the country leaders, but one of the AI’s, if it decides that a preemptive strike is most probable path to victory.

— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2017

 

“The creation of powerful artificial intelligence may turn out to be the ‘worst thing ever to happen to humanity’ despite its potential benefits. ​Without a world government, technology will destroy us.” – Stephen Hawking.

 

 

Alibaba’s Jack Ma tells CNBC that artificial intelligence could set off World War III.

 

 

 

 

 

“Whoever leads in AI will rule the world” – Vladimir Putin

 

 

 

 

I, Caleb Suresh Motupalli, Son of David of రొట్టెల ఇల్లు House of Bread, happen to possess a God-given, patent pending solution, which co-opts AI, for not only avoiding WWIII but also for world governance. It is called Agape TiE® Ecosystem having a Christocratic New World Order of Rev21:4-5NIV (Necked Service Oriented Architecture) with eThrone.

 

Proposal also available as a book:

 

 

Now, if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Bride of Christ will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?

 

Thank you for your prayers and for ratifying God’s choice for Capstone & Neck!

 

 

 

World Governor

Dear concerned friend,

Greetings in Jesus’ name!

As i have written to you earlier, i am commissioned to serve as Son of David/Capstone. Therefore, as you know, i have been running for World Governor. I need your help to move this proposal forward. I am not running as one who knows some management tactics, but as one in the image of creator-God who offers excellent good & service.

Up until today, i was under the impression that the US government or the Indian government were alone censoring me. But now, the cat is out of the box! We have an accomplice. Mark Zuckerberg has appeared on the world stage with his own proposal for a new world order and world government. Zuckerberg found this Son of David/Capstone easy to crush, copy, and advance his own new world order.

The Guardian had this to say about his proposal:

‘“In times like these, the most important thing we at Facebook can do is develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us,” he says. A global community that “prevents harm, helps during crises and rebuilds afterwards”.

A role that might be more accurately described as this: government. Because that’s what this letter is, a template for Facebook’s role in a new world order. A supranational power that exists above and beyond the nation state.’ 

As an AI expert, i can attest that AI implementations of misdirected policies of Mark Zuckerberg and his team, who are neither elected by God nor the people, can be a grave danger to the world.

Thus says the Holy Spirit: Matthew 19:23-26.

Thank you for your prayers and for ratifying God’s choice!

Abiding in His grip,
Your brother in Christ,

Just Punishment

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , ,

God’s face (Justice) and not His back (Goodness), is the best of Love (Exodus 33:17-19; John 1:14; cf. 1Jn4:8). God taught His children, even as early as Abel, to kill, to keep us from being a wimp in doing justice.

Jesus “affirmed retributive justice by His own death on the cross” ~ Dr. Mark Creech of the Christian Action League.

A dead man comes back to life to show that a man need not die if he is clean (Rom1:3-4; cf. Rom6:23; Gen2:17). That a totally innocent man needs to be put to death so that “his blood would be upon us and our children” and then for him to rise again from the dead to show that our sins have indeed been forgiven IN him, is self-evident, requiring no evidence to defend it.

That God loves us, is true. But there is a limit to His tolerance, beyond which we can find ourselves in hell. When we live by the Golden Rule and don’t cross His line, He will not cross ours. God has provisioned a framework (church) for self-correction. No use feeling sorry after you are caught.

Here is the basic problem of lawlessness in the leading edge of society today that is driving the whole earth to its demise: “To escape the error of salvation by works we have fallen into the opposite error of salvation without obedience” (AW Tozer). In the name of liberty and freedom, everything goes. The result: 42nd Street in New York City, Abortion-on-Demand, Same Sex marriage, etc, etc. At this rate, 10 years from now, I would not be surprised if sex/marriage with animals too will be legalized. Next thing you know, we are the late great planet earth.

When the Bible says that Jesus atoned for our sins, it does not mean that even our future sins were washed away in the Waters of Baptism, obviating the need for any subsequent obedience per se. In Romans3:25 and 2Peter1:9, the Apostles clearly teach that only sins previously committed were atoned for by the sacrifice of Christ. This means that the inadvertent sins that are committed after the washing of Baptism, if they are not confessed and “feet-washed” (forgiven through the ordinance, which is in the order of John20:21-23), will remain as charges in God’s books, pending payment of a penalty.

The second kind of sins (omissions and commissions) that can get accumulated are the wilful sins or the presumptuous sins, which David dreaded. Hebrews 10:26ff reads: “For if we go on sinning  wilfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, no more sacrifice [of Jesus Christ] is left but only a fearful expectation of judgment and the fury of fire…” In Luke12:47-48, Jesus Himself speaks of greater punishment for those who know the will of God and don’t do it, when compared to those who sin not knowing the will of God, to begin with. Listen! Abused grace/mercy deserves double or even treble punishment.

Woe unto those who soft-pedal God’s justice and have turned Christianity into a yes-man!

In view of the above two types of unpaid sins, a people who practice Christianity, if they want to see Justice, Peace and Wealth—the three metrics of good governance—to exist, they must put in place some sort of retribution, including the Death Penalty for those deserving it. Individuals do not have the right to kill another, but a Christian state (two or three Christians gathered in Jesus’ name to bind or loose anything on earth as per Matthew18:15-20) has that prerogative to do so. Bro. Nicky Gumbel writes in an article on “How to love”:

The New Testament makes a distinction between the dealings of the state and personal morality. Governing authorities are established by God and ‘the one in authority is God’s servant to do you good… They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer’ (Romans 13:4). The state is concerned with the protection of others. To stand by and allow injustice would actually be unloving and unchristian. It would be to allow evil to go unchecked, and to ignore the pain of the victims. Yet, in personal morality we are told, both by Jesus and the apostle Paul, not to take revenge (Matthew 5:38–42; Romans 12:17–19). This attitude of love and forgiveness is not to deny justice, but rather it is an expression of trust in God’s ultimate justice (see Romans 12:19). As we trust in God’s justice, we are empowered to imitate his love.

Here, the raison d’être of Just punishment is not for the sake of deterrence, since the indwelling Holy Spirit is sufficient as a Restrainer for Christian individuals, in so far as the conscience is sensitized for any given sin. But if victims are to be healed, and perpetrators to be reformed, then Just punishment, even though it is a basic provision, is necessary. It is also consistent with a just and loving God, who declares: “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed,  for God made man in his own image.”

Apostle Paul takes issue with those who turn the grace of God into a license to sin: “Do we then nullify the Law through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Law” (Romans3:31). As to how God establishes the Law through Jesus Christ, we read in Romans8:3: “For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God, sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and offering Him for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh.” That is, Jesus’ death on the cross vindicated the Father of His wrath on any transgressed law. While it is not for an individual to kill a person for any reason, it is the state’s prerogative here, not merely for the sake of deterrence, but also, in the name of Christ, to judge and execute those deserving retribution & capital punishment. “The just use of executions, far from involving the crime of murder, is an act of paramount obedience to this (Fifth) Commandment, which prohibits murder” ~ Pope Pius V, The Roman Catechism of the Council of Trent (1566). If being pro-life does not mean death for those who do not value it, what does?

You may ask: “what about the woman caught in adultery in Jesus’ time?” Jonathan Merritt writes, “Jesus served as a one-man jury on this death-penalty case. The woman was guilty of the capital offense and had been caught in the act by at least one witness. The law mandated her death but Jesus prescribed a different response: “Let whoever is without sin cast the first stone.” He was teaching that only a perfect being—only God—should have power over death and life. Yes, it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY.” And again, “THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE” (Hebrews 10:30). My answer is that she would be saved by Christ Himself, in the future, on the cross. Jesus is the saviour for all people past, present and future. While we in the present look back in time for a saviour, those in the Old Testament time looked into the future for a saviour, including the woman caught in adultery. Jesus did not throw the first stone because He chose mercy in HER case. Laying down a pattern for us, who are to carry the cross, He was Himself paying the penalty in her case. Jesus was certain that she would respond positively to the Gospel if it were presented to her (cf. Romans2:11-16). Jesus had confidence in this woman in particular because she was not in league with teachers of the Law, or some other lofty status in life, for one thing. Conceivably, she possessed the requisite humility for receiving the Good News (Gospel) in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. C.S. Lewis so eloquently put it this way:

“Prostitutes are in no danger of finding life so satisfactory that they can’t turn to God: the proud & self-righteous are in that danger.”

The fact that He sacrificed Himself to death, affirms, first and foremost, the principle that a sin has to be paid for.  Just as a teacher of the Law is more accountable for sins committed than a layperson (James3:1), a nation who KNOW fully well the full import of why Jesus had to die such a cruel death, which is never to be repeated again for any sins of theirs, should have in place the strictest, most severe, capital punishment; even torture, followed by death. But for cases that are “too hard” for us, to send them to God per Deut1:17 using a painless lethal injection is justifiable, even virtuous. Jesus declares that this truth is self-evident by saying: “From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more” (Luke12:48b). For this same reason, Prophet Muhammad (exclusively judged here) and all those who:

  • Presumptuously believe Allah will provide Christians as substitutionary sacrifices in place of Muslims in order to enter paradise per Hadith Sahih Muslim 37:6665, 37:6666, 37:6668
  • After having acknowledged most of the truths in the Torah, Tanakh, and Injeel, now believe in diversions from the truth (i.e. interspersing truth with lies/diversions/mischief such as Koran 2:111 and Koran 2:135)

are condemned to be tortured, followed by death. Unless of course, they, as an Ummah (Muslim community) seek mercy.

You see, forgiveness is available only for those who do not know what they are doing (Injeel Luke 23:34).

However, those convicted to death, must be given ample time to set themselves right before God, before the execution is actually administered. The convicted can then give himself the benefit of having received Christ into his heart and in so doing, be satisfied of having already crossed over from death to life (Jn5:24) before his execution. For he knows that the resurrection of Jesus Christ had to have happened to show that death is only for sinners and not for him, who got all his sins washed away in the waters of Resurrection Baptism. He can rejoice with hope that his name is written in the Lamb’s book of life and join with Apostle Paul, who defiantly told death: “O death, where is thy sting?” For, it is the second death a Christian is more concerned about. As to whether this is sufficient relief for a Christian on death row, we must assert that willful sin must be paid for!

But it is a whole different scenario where a nation have not yet got the full import of why Jesus had to die such a cruel death, which we Christians fully know is for those very inadvertent sins we commit daily, sins for which we come again and again to wash our feet, so to speak. Here, the state cannot take upon itself the duty of cutting short the grace period of anyone before they can enter into eternal life. Within a nation where the Gospel is not fully preached, Capital Punishment robs a person from repenting—a process that is gradual—and being born-again. Such states are commanded to allow the work of missionaries, who follow Jesus, taking upon themselves His incarnational mission by being living sacrifices, and save that soul from eternal damnation; not snuff it out deliberately and even corporately before God’s appointed day for him/her.

I am not suggesting that execution need to be postponed until they accept the Gospel. Neither am i saying that they should be executed soon after they do. The execution and disciplining need to be handled separately. As to how much time is enough time, can be arrived at through consensus in your legislative assemblies. That a fixed time be given for repentance, is consistent with our own lease of life that God allots to us–70 years or at the most 80 years (Psalms90:10). God will not strive with man forever; neither should the state.

And yet again, there is a whole different scenario for those who are under the Law of Moses, having been circumcised, just as Jews and Muslims are. For these, deterrence is the issue; the state should take an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth, until the state itself gets macroscopically evangelized to Christianity, which is of a higher order. In an upcoming post, i hope to deal with the issue of Dual-Covenant Theology, which is close on the heels of this article.

No one can say that they have not heard the Gospel. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse” (Rom1:20). Today, all nations more or less, have this great cloud of witnesses as well, surrounding them. No one can afford to neglect so great a salvation–a provision of God, who liberally gave us His Son, even to die for us on the cruel cross of Calvary. It is blasphemous on the part of any nation’s leadership to reject the very remedy for sin, which causes death in people. It is an unpardonable sin for which not even prayers can be offered.

Every nation is obliged to legislate this self-evident Just Punishment, which is based on the Gospel truth.

Gandhi & The One Way

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli

Vivekananda is quite right that the heartbeat of India is her God-consciousness. But we are not living up to our ideals, not even to our motto–Satyameva Jayate (Truth Alone Triumphs).

When the “Father of the Indian Nation,” M.K. Gandhi  says:

“God is not encased in a safe to be approached only through a little hole in it,”

he is obviously alluding to, and is against the Christian Missionary’s contention that we can approach the all supreme God (creator of the universe) only through one mediator, the man Christ Jesus, who said: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). As Pastor Charles Stanley says, “If there were OTHER ways to Himself, then יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर knowingly did the most devilish thing to send His Son to earth who would later be nailed to that excruciating cross [leave alone whether he died on it or not].”  The truth that “all have sinned and it is our sins that separate us from God,” seems to be eluding many, including great personalities like Gandhi as well as the common man. ALL streams (ways) do lead to one ocean (death – Heb9:27); but only one narrow way to Mt. Everest (eternal life). In conforming to the one way that God set before us, man shows himself to be humble, which is the greatest virtue in the kingdom of God (Matt18:4).

If the rulers of this world have protocols, how much more, God?! You have to come to God on His terms, not yours!

Those who Conform at all, show that they are Humble!

It is a law of nature that a caterpillar must conform to the little hole in the pupa in order to be transformed into a butterfly. It does pay sometimes to be a nonconformist when the situation warrants. But a nonconformist, who seeks after some difference, merely for the sake of difference, are but rebels.

“Rebellion in the light of justice is black, but in the light of love it is devilish” (Charles Spurgeon).

With such a great cloud of witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ abounding, i could not help but be persuaded about my sure sins and humbled myself to conform (believe). Though i was illumined about the Savior in 1977 at Zion, Gunt-ur, it was only in 1989 that i conformed with all Christians world over and had my sins washed in the Waters of Baptism. It was only after i put my trust (believed) in the Lord Jesus Christ that i came to know anything that is worth knowing at all. Dr. Billy Graham correctly stated: “It is not after knowing that we believe. It is after believing that we come to know.” But sure enough, the Lord Jesus Christ does not expect us to believe in Him without first giving us a taste of Himself. As the scriptures declare, “Taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm). So, Try Jesus! And then Jesus Himself declares: “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent” (Jn17:3).

Letter to Supreme Leader of Iran, now OPEN

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags:

Fri, October 14, 2011 3:15 pm

Dear Supreme Leader of Iran, Sayyid Ali Khamenei,

Greetings once again to you in the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ, who laid down His life for all of us in order that we MAY have life-everlasting!

Democratic politicians are just puppets(?) in the hands of the corporate oligarchy, who are the current rulers of the world. They want to deflect the blame for the present *Great Disruption* and insecurities all over the world to these politicians. Strictly speaking, USA is the de facto UN, where the rest of the citizens of the world don’t even have a say. Will we see the likes of the French Revolution again, the world over?

This is a faithful saying: “A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed – without remedy” (Proverbs 29:1). Father الله had said to the Lord Jesus Christ: “Sit at My right hand, until I put YOUR enemies beneath your feet” (Psalm 110:1).

So you must not “hide” your testimony about the Lord Jesus Christ, lest you come across as an enemy yourself of the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray once again that the Father الله open every Muslim’s eye to SUBMIT their free-will to this clear WILL of His, which is:

None should have to pay their own penalty for their sins, but all AVAIL Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for them! 

I know you have received only “one talent” of information about Jesus but you need to act upon that information given to you. For there is a warning in Matthew 25:24-30 to the one who has received even little.

“Independent” nations cannot afford to say they are independent/sovereign, for they are not (John 19:11; Romans 13:1). They need to make a public Declaration of their Dependence–a dependence on the King of kings and the Lord of lords (Revelation 17:14)! The Father יהוה/الله/ God/బ్రహ్మ is LORD–the ALL-IN-ALL (1Cor 15:28). And to His right is Jesus Christ, the Lord of all in heaven and on earth (Psalm 110:1; Acts 10:34-43; Matthew 28:18).

Respected Sayyid Ali Khamenei,

Just as we are like lords unto our wives, the Lord Jesus Christ is Lord of ALL mankind; and Father (الله) is His LORD (1 Cor 11:3). So we need to come to terms with that and respect this hierarchy, which the Jews neglected and have therefore been rejected. “Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father (الله), who sent him” (John 5:22-23).

Looking forward to rejoicing with you as many Muslims from all around the world come to hear your testimony and be saved. May be even right now, since the time is up as i see it. In *two* days, the Lord told me earlier this morning, is “Passover”. Remember, it is Jesus alone who can forgive sins because He alone paid our sin debt for all sins we have committed till the day we have heard this information. He who has ears let him hear what the Spirit says.

This is my زكاة (Zakat) and صداقه (Sadaqah) of eternal-life-giving-food (information) to you and to all Muslims that you witness to, using this. Thus says the Lord:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Affectionately,

Caleb Surésh Motupalli

Rosemarie Buxton of Episcopal Divinity School wrote in response to Professor Stephen Prothero’s book (God is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World–and Why Their Differences Matter) and his article (Separate Truths) in the Boston Globe on April 25, 2010:

According to Karen Armstrong, the difficulties arise when one religion sets itself apart as the one religion and chooses to do anything to defend itself, a sin that many religions have been guilty of throughout history.

Coming from the pen of a Christian Divinity school graduate, i am very disappointed at the above statement.

Mankind is but one-kind. And so is creation-kind. Can an offspring say that he has two fathers or two mothers? That is not only vulgar but also foolish. That there is but one God, the creator of heaven and earth transcends any sort of debate.

Now, there are a lot of injustices that are going unpunished by the government(s). The socio, economic, political, environmental crisis we are seeing today is testimony of that fact. Justice is not being meted out to all. That is why the Bible stresses on the Day of Judgment, when the Lord of lords and the King of kings will be seated on the throne and render justice to the nations.

Now for this justice to be rendered with equity, there needs to be one law that is self-evident and transcends all other laws. This Law is the Law of Agape Love that Jesus kept and “exceeded the righteousness of the Pharisees” of His time and went and sat at the right hand side of God to judge the world.

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for His friends” ~ Lord Jesus Christ (John 15:13). How much more “self-evident” and transcendent can you get.

To say that there are other ways or back-doors to God is an affront to the living God who is Jehovah Jireh–the One who provided this Way–an excruciating death for His son the Lord Jesus Christ only in order to fulfill the transcendent AND self-evident truth in John 15:13 as stated above. If there were indeed other ways then God was a stupid fool to take His son through this excruciating death. So excruciating that the Lord’s sweat turned into blood well before He was going to be crucified because He knew what kind of pain He will have to suffer.

So, i believe, after the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Bhagavad Gita’s reference namely:

“As the different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea, so, O Lord, the different paths which men take, through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee!”

and

“Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach him; all men are struggling through paths that in the end lead to Me.”

apply to the Lord Jesus Christ Himself–all streams have to end up with Him. In other words, at the Judgment Seat of Christ!

Walk the Talk!

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , , , ,

Don’t agree!

We not only have the Great Commission to be the Light (Talk) of the world, but we also have the Kingdom-Now mandate to be the Salt (Walk) of the earth.

So let your Light (Talk/Gospel) so shine before men that they see your Good-deeds (Walk) and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

In other words, we must WALK THE TALK!

Agape TiE is all about that. To give love where love is due and respect where respect is due and thus lift up a testimony which the whole world will behold, believe and be saved (John 17:23; John 3:14-15).

China made Toy GunThere is an insidious attack by the Chinese–it appears–to subvert India and other non-communist states. A case in point is how the Chinese toy industry is used to sabotage Gun-Control that states like India enjoy today.

I was shocked when i saw this gun in my son’s possession. He bought it by himself in a nearby shop for INR 30 (USD 0.75). It turned out to be a toy gun. I had to explain to him at length how when someone sees this in his possession, they might act in self defense and hurt him. My blood brother Sudeep Motupalli Rao from San Francisco was also with us on a conference to tell him that it is a slippery slope to the real thing. Very soon he would want to use the real guns to get back at someone he does not like. He told him how guns are designed to not merely hurt a person but to kill a life which has survived fifty, seventy years through the world system.

In the United States, it is mandated now to make Toy Guns with a color to reveal that they are toys.  But China, he said, has other ways that are also “insidious.” For instance, jewelery used to contain Lead but when the government banned import of Lead based Jewelery, China is exporting Jewelery that contains Cadmium, which is more dangerous than Lead. Sudeep holds a Masters in Chemical Engineering with a PhD in Environmental Engineering.

Coupled with this insidious attack through the toy industry, China through the Olympic committee  gave India the only Gold medal. Now every kid should imitate Bindra–the sole model for them.

Whether China is deliberately doing this sort of thing is everyone’s guess. China could very well be a puppet in the hands of a much greater force, namely the MNCs. What remains however, is that we are battling against principalities in the heavenly realms to safeguard our neighborhoods.

The first world where most of the MNCs have their headquarters know very well that it is the Standard of Living that determines free flow of human capital back to its roots. They saw the devaluation of the American Dream in the World Trade Center attack. They now want to rub off the same thing on other countries as well especially on vulnerable countries like India where the person who has a voice at all, wears merely handloom clothing, which in their eyes lacks sophistication and therefore an easy target. Khadi served to make India self-reliant during freedom struggle. But in the global economy which is dominated by services, India has to show its clout. I recommend Sherwanis for the Indian political figures and IFS officers rather than the demoted handloom dress code.

“Proponents who deny that salvation can never be lost, reason on the subject in a marvelous way. They tell us …..

That no virgin’s lamp can go out; (Matt. 25:8)
That no promising harvest be chocked with thorns; (Matt. 13:22)
That no branch in Christ can ever be cut off from fruitfulness; (John 15:6)
That no name can be blotted out of God’s book! (Rev. 3:5)
That no salt can ever lose its savor; (Mat 5:13)
That nobody can ever “receive the grace of God in vain”; (2 Cor. 6:1)
That no one can “look back” after putting his hand to the plow. (Luke 9:62)
That Nobody can “grieve the Spirit” (Eph 4:30) till He is “quenched,” (1 Thess. 5:19) nor
That Nobody, or body of believers, can ever get so lukewarm that Jesus will spew them out of His mouth. Rev 3:16
They use reams of paper to argue that …
If one ever got lost he was never found;
That if one falls, he never stood.
If one was ever cast forth, he was never in
If one ever withered, (John 15:6) he was never green.
If one draws back, (Heb 10:38) he never had anything to draw back from.
That if one ever falls into spiritual darkness, he was never enlightened;
That if you again get entangled in the pollutions of the world, (2 Pet. 2:20-22) it shows that you never escaped.
That if you put salvation away, you never had it to put away,
That if you make shipwreck of your faith, (1 Tim. 1:19-20) there was no ship of faith there.
In short they say:
If you get it, you can’t lose it: and if you lose it you never had it. May God save us from accepting a doctrine, that must be defended by such fallacious reasoning. (John Wesley)

Not a mere layman’s perspective!

The following two presentations by a university professor help us understand the reasons for the status quo prevailing in the world-at-large.

The question to ask ourselves is: Are there demerits in the status quo that we can do away with while designing Christocracy?

In the globalized society of Christocracy a homestead program similar to the one that was in the United States may be implemented as a recompense or refuge to flee to for those in the laboring nations of the global economy. Workers can begin to work in leisure as it was in the Garden of Eden and actually enjoy the products, services, farms and the households they build.

With e-governance, Christocracy can obviate the need for a bloated public sector or a huge government bureaucracy, while all the time obtaining global synergistic economy and all the other benefits that come with it.

As to the question: Who governs in Christocracy?
Answer: The organized Bride–Remnant Overcomers (the Chosen) who have a vital relationship with the indwelling Christ.

An insight into the kingdom

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , ,

Bill Bradford of Good News magazine wrote in the article “The Real Gospel …”

Entering the Kingdom

When Jesus came preaching the Kingdom of God, He said it was “at hand” and commanded people to repent and believe the good news about it (Mark 1:14, 15).

His kingdom is something we must enter (Mark 10:23, 25). Jesus warned of obstacles that can prevent our entrance into the Kingdom (Matthew 5:20; 19:23-25; Mark 9:47; Luke 18:17; John 3:5).

Jesus was at that time inviting people to repent so they could enter the Kingdom of God (Mark 1:15). His parables described what the Kingdom is, when it would come and how a person could enter it, and He clarified the requirements for and obstacles to entering it.

When does a person enter the Kingdom of God? Upon conversion, Christians become children of God and heirs of the kingdom (Romans 8:16, 17). But they will not inherit the kingdom until the kingdom comes. Paul explains: “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:50-52).

Many people stop reading after the first four verses of this chapter, thinking they describe the entirety of the gospel Paul preached. But, by continuing to read the chapter, we see clearly that there is much more to the story. Paul goes on to explain more about the resurrection from the dead and entrance into the Kingdom of God. We “inherit,” or enter, that kingdom “at the last trumpet” (verse 52), the great blast that signals Christ’s return to rule the earth forever (Revelation 11:15).

Salvation through Jesus’ life, death and resurrection is indeed a part of the gospel message, but it is not exclusively (as many assume) the gospel message. Jesus Christ died, was buried and was resurrected (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) for a reason: so we could have everlasting life in the Kingdom of God (John 3:3, 5, 16).

We can accept Jesus’ command to repent and believe this gospel message. We can turn to God for forgiveness and reconciliation through Jesus Christ and begin to live by the laws of the Kingdom of God as taught by Jesus Christ. Those who refuse to live by God’s holy laws will be refused entrance into the Kingdom of God and eternal life (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:5).

Entering the Kingdom of God is synonymous with salvation. Thus, without understanding what the Kingdom of God is, we don’t understand what salvation is.

That is an awesome insight into the truth. But there is more to it, i believe.

The “last trumpet” that is spoken of i believe, pertains to the voice of any evangelist who finally consummates the new birth of a particular believer, which results in the person following up with a testimony in the waters of Baptism. In other words the last trumpet is perhaps not common to all. As i have written in the Be Born Again! article, baptism is the first resurrection from the dead.

He then actually enters into the kingdom of heaven. Note that i no longer have a mortal body but rather an immortal body. It is a body that is destined for glory as long as i abide in Christ. And since Christ abides in me, it is no longer i who do the living but Christ who lives in me. As Christ works from within me with His love to take full control of me and my environment, the preconditioning in my body to sin begins to recede.

The “tent” that we live in is often mistaken for the”flesh and blood” that Paul talks about, the later of which he says will not inherit the kingdom of God. The flesh and blood refer to anything that is the product of one’s own self-righteousness be it status, knowledge, appearance, goods, services, etc, etc.

Now there is a microcosmic last trumpet and also a macrocosmic last trumpet, the later pertaining to the whole world or the remnant from the whole world. In other words all the nations who will listen to the last macrocosmic trumpet and who will frame laws around the will of God.

In the above quote note the underlined phrase: Those who refuse to live by God’s holy laws will be refused entrance into the Kingdom of God and eternal life (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:5).

The clear implication in light of what i have said about the trumpets is that the Kingdom of God is NOW!

“Those” meaning… individuals, families, organizations, business as well as nations who “do not live today by God’s holy laws will be refused entrance into the kingdom of God and eternal life!”

Vision of Paradise on Earth

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli

Vision of Paradise on Earth

(Please write to me by way of a comment so that i can give you the password to view the above presentations that are in the making)

In the remarks made by Henry Paulson in the month of March, he admits by saying: “The current system … can allow important regulatory matters to fall through the cracks.”

As i have said earlier in “Ushering in Theonomy and Global Paternalism” about Adam Smith’s self-regulatory proposal, Henry Paulson’s Self-Regulatory proposal too is broadly no different. It is not the answer to the crisis we face today at least not for the poor nations or for that matter small businesses. Today’s Financial markets have global scope and we need international regulation, be it financial or conduct. It is the developing nations which will suffer for not Ushering-in Theonomy and Global Paternalism in time, because capital and people will always be induced to move to the shores of the developed nations without regulation. If at all there is anyone who will stand to gain from Theonomy and Global Paternalism, it is the developing nations.

Here is an interesting comment by Dave Chapman on the “Blueprint” that appeared in the Herald Tribune:

“This document looks like an attempt to muddy the waters with a bogus proposal, in the hope that they can stall meaningful regulation until the crisis goes away”

or the threat from “Kingdom Now” proponents goes away.

Architecting the New Heavens

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli

(Article adapted from a letter written to all the Shepherds of the Church in St. Kitts and Nevis in the year 2005 of the Lord Yeshua.)

“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth;

THEY will build houses and inhabit them;
THEY will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
….”

(Isaiah 65:17a, 21 NASB emphasis mine)
———————————————————–

Heaven is better or worse based on the judgment pronounced on the nation of Israel—the body of believers—in accordance to their collective works. For, as i have always reasoned with you from scripture, it is by our deeds that we are judged. The work of believing in the work of Christ renders us as new born resurrected babes in Him with a minimum balance to our account, canceling our debt of sin. As we go through the process of sanctification we have to credit into our account good deeds/fruit/works so that we may fetch dividends in the age to come. In judging ourselves as i see it today, there is little for that Lazarus out there to quench and feed his spiritual, physical, social, mental, and emotional thirst and hunger. Remember the story of the old rich woman who passed away? When she was received in heaven her limousine was taking her to her quarters. She passed by many mansions which she approved for her living quarters but the chauffeur would not stop at any of those mansions. Finally he dropped her at the ghetto and said, “This is where you will spend the rest of your life because that reflects how much you invested in heaven.” Dear friends, tithing is not applicable to us today for Christ said, “By the standard that we measure unto others, it will be measured unto us.” Remember, we have to exceed the righteousness of the Scribes and the Pharisees who were scrupulous in paying their tithes (Matt. 5:20). Also remember the woman who put two coins into the offering box? Yeshua said of her, “She gave all she had. She is more righteous than all others who gave out of their abundance.” We are to give wholly to God. Everything must be geared in such a way so as to bring maximum glory to Him.

In a human body the mouth that receives the food and fluids, the eyes and ears that receive the word (spirit) and the nose that receives the air, are located in the head. Note that there is no hole in the ribcage for the stomach nor is there any direct access to food for any member to make its own supply. The central heart supplies the blood to the whole body. Therefore, in a one nation under God, Cesar is also God’s representative or the Vicar of Christ on earth. Now, just as we make provision to eat diet and read good books that are especially good for the brain, provision should be made in the democratic theocratic state to receive freewill offerings for the Teacher along with other taxes that the state receives.

Christ prayed for our unity and He does place servants in charge of His household (Jn. 17:23; Matt. 24:45). The Pope is a symbol of visible unity in the Church. God Himself acknowledges that when we are united, nothing will be impossible for us (Gen. 11:6). Properly elected by the body in Christ, it is through the Pope, Christ is lifted up macroscopically (even as we do it microscopically) for everyone to see so that whoever believes after seeing and hearing can have eternal life. He is the moral voice of restraint in the world. You might say theocracy has nothing to do with democracy. Have you not read it written, “If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all?” That is Democracy 101. As i see it today, each one wants to spread their own empire, not the empire of Christ. It began with Constantine appointing the Bishop of Rome as the head of the Roman Catholic church, and the Bishop of Rome in turn anointing Constantine as the king of Rome.

Dear brethren, those soldiers who died in Iraq in order to spread freedom and democracy have not died in vain. When democracy has had its full course, truth (Christ) will emerge as the victorious One, lifted up and exalted above everyone else.

This democratic spirit is found in Paul too who writes, “There must be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you.”

Architecting heaven is Christ’s current business. Paul calls us God’s fellow-workers (1 Cor. 3:9); John calls us Christ’s bride (Rev. 19:7) and therefore we are His helpmate; Christ Himself calls us His friends who know what He is doing (Jn. 15:15); and the Bible is replete with the fact that we are not the children of darkness but of light. After telling us that He is going to the Father’s house where there are many dwelling places to prepare a place for us there, He says that we know the Way where He is going (Jn. 14:2-6 NASB). He is the Way and we can go there and help prepare a place for all of us there. The next crisis is in showing them the Father and in making them believe what He is saying is the truth. Then He says, “If you have known me, you would have known the Father also. From now on you have known Him and seen Him.” Likewise i say to you today, if you have known me, you would have known Christ also; from now on you know Him and have seen Him. Marvel not! But if you are a resurrected child of God, you too can say those very words yourself and mean it from the bottom of your heart. It is Christ who lives in you through the Holy Spirit and is one body with you (Jn. 14:16-18). However, we are all not alike, in that we are all not one member, then where would the body be? But now there is one body but many members (1 Cor. 12:19, 20). Even if you are that tiny toe, you can confidently say, “I am He!” The difference between then and now is: Christ was only one person then—Yeshua the Nazarene; today however, He is many persons according to the measure of each man’s faith. So heaven is what we in Him and He in us make it out to be.

Dear Yeshua, Ruler of our hearts, we pray that you be fully formed in us as the nervous system forms in the human body, so that we may correctly represent you. You who made all this possible by shedding your precious blood, we experience you. Yet we long to see you. Come! Come soon Lord Yeshua! Amen!

Thus says the Lord: Luke 17:12-19; Jn. 4:18; Matt. 23:37-39. Luke 13:18-21; Jn. 3:26-30; Luke 22:47-53 John 6:61-63 NIRV (… The body means nothing at all….); John 13:21 Help us Lord not to be hypocritical and thus betray you. Amen!

Thus says the Lord: Jn. 18:22-23; Matt. 17:1-5
