The vision is taken from the Book of Revelation.  In Chapter 12 Apostle John describes the vision  thus: “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven- a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she being with child, cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” In the illustration I have also included a red dragon who having cast one third of the stars to the earth is becoming a threat to the woman in labor.

What does the woman represent?

She is the symbol representing the House of Israel and the Church. Promise of God shall never fail but election demands both meet certain criteria. Only a remnant from the nation of Israel shall be part of the redeemed from the earth. Similarly there shall be only those who accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and walked under grace till the end make as members of the Church. They make a composite picture the man-child.  When male child is lifted to safety  the woman is no longer a wonder in heaven but is the left-behind church and about to undergo the Great Tribulation.

The events in my second illustration show the vision happening different at time frames.

Holy Roman Emperor Charles V allegedly said, “I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men and German to my horse.”

Kings and Emperors the best as they come are encrypted. King of Tongo cannot be in Fiji but in effigy, he makes sense. In UK monarchy is an institution and revered as ancient Egyptian would before god Thoth. No wonder Prince Charles is as petrified as he is before his calcified monarch and all he can say is, “Mummy.”

In the desert kingdoms there are as many dates as sheikhs. You knock or better still shake one what you find but stones? I haven’t seen a sheikh doing it: stones they spit out if not cleaning their ends.

Recently some princesses were hauled up in Brussels on the charges of human trafficking. They are the kings in trafficking. Why do they abuse domestic helps? It shows their clout. They belong to elite class and only way they prove is to rub it on the poor nobodies. It is permitted top- down and it makes them sort of kings. King of Cesspools recently administered a blogger 100 lashes what for? He wrote some graffiti on the sand while doing his morning duties. He wrote, “The king here stinks.!” So the king had him hauled over his stable full of camels and wrote graffiti on his back with palm fronds. That is what king of Cesspools can do. They sit over their privileges and add to their hoard.

King Charles V spoke only German to his horse. But for all that he never abused his courtiers for speaking German to him.

First some facts as on 2012 : according to Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary  there exist roughly 43,000 Christian denominations worldwide in 2012. That is up from 500 in 1800 and 39,000 in 2008 and this number is expected to grow to 55,000 by 2025. It also estimates that a new Christian denomination is formed every 10.5 hours, or 2.3 denominations a day. (Ack: churchrelevance.com).

With such denominations mushrooming we need understand that the Second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is drawing nearer. So at every nook and corner of the globe assemblies of believers are engaged in planting churches and preaching the word of God. So let us take a charitable view of these local assemblies are the work-shops in which ministers of God winning souls for the Redeemer Lord. None of these is the Church or Bride but artisans of God doing their best.  We should not certainly forget they do yeoman service not only engaged in saving souls but also fighting insidious force of heresies. Our Lord Jesus predicted of such false prophets who would come as wolves in sheep’s clothes. Marginalia is a guide for those who who shall know the truth. Truth shall surely make children of God free. Marginalia is my service and I believe God has given a ministry to serve the Word to His glory.

Whatever revelations my book contain as such I claim nothing of my own but how the Holy Spirit revealed on daily basis to buttress the inerrancy of the Word with what grace He has poured into my life. It took three full months to write the initial draft and another one year to make it to the present shape.

I shall post the blurb I have added to the book.

“Christianity has been bedevilled by controversies from the Apostolic Age to the present. Among the early converts those who came from Judaism favoured an interpretation that sat well with their Jewish upbringing.  It was like putting the new religion in old wine skins so to speak. The world ecumenism of our own times would have the person and deity of Jesus pass the test of sceptic and believer alike. Either way it is less than the Word made flesh. One cannot photoshop Jesus Christ to please all. The aim of this book is to present him of whom we read as thus ‘ it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell (Col.1:19)’.

This concise guide to the Bible is presented from two standpoints of God the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit has set these two as single narrative where the Will or Intent of God is shown as coming from the Son since he is the Image of the ‘Invisible God(Col.1:15)’

Coherence in the Scripture is the work of God the Spirit and maintained so the Son of man ‘is before all things and by him all things consist’.  Adam is thus an antitype of Jesus who is qualified as the last Adam. He is the spiritual rock; and bread from heaven. The entire scriptural unity testifies this: the Bible is from God to man.

In short Marginalia: a concise guide to the Bible favours a faith based approach to understand the word of God. Faith as St Paul says comes from ‘hearing by the word of God (Ro.10:17).” ”

Everybody, ol’ Nick’s in town

He’s got a scythe and a bag that doesn’t say much:

Well, let the good times roll, let the good times roll
I don’t care if you’re young or old

Mown together let the Grim Reepah

Have some fun on the side!

Get together, let the good time roll

Well, it aint buddy it is a quaint thing to do

While jiving and rollin’ Nick let him go,go, go

And let the good times roll, let the good times roll
I don’t care if you’re young or old

Mown together let the Grim Reepah

Have some fun too.

 

Well, I like a little coffee and I like a little tea
But stir-it, spike it Ol-Nick’s brew is the thing for me
And let the good times roll, let the good times roll
I don’t care if you’re young or old
Get together, let the good time roll

Yeah!

Alright now let’s go!
Let it roll, let it roll, all night long
Let it roll, let it roll, all night long
Let it roll, let it roll, all night long
Let it roll, let it roll, all night long
I don’t care if you’re young or old
Get together, let the good time roll
Now let’s go!
Let it roll, let it roll, all night long

Nothing but trouble comes out of these four:

Making use of friends. Remember the down fall of Choi Soon-sil who was a close confidante of the former South Korean President. She has been sentenced for corruption. Similarly the case of Sashikala in the state of Tamil Nadu. She was so close with Jayalalitha, as close and deep as a tape worm in her bowels. Where is she now? Once the Chief Minister died her fate was sealed. So is everyone who is eager to be seen in company of the rich and famous.

Making friends with others with ulterior motives, is like a book that has lost its cover. Soon incessant demands one makes for their time, and peddling influence using their names blunts his/her moral fibre. A dog eared book with many pages missing is only fit for trashcan.

Loving things above people makes you dependent on a worse taskmaster who will only leave you bound after having gnawed off your heart ,soul and the very music of your life. Late Helmut Kohl the architect of an unified Germany was under the cloud. Since dead we shall not discuss his corruption as leader of men. Now a toxic family feud follows him to his grave. Kohl may turn in his grave what price he paid for such a discord?

Things also mean surface appearances: loving a woman for her bloom of youth and not taking care to invest your time to make her bask in your love unfeigned, shall leave a bitter taste when years take a toll of both. Duke of Wellington sought the hand of his Kitty when his name was yet to be heard. When he finally married her the shock was great for him they lived unhappily as ever. What price is glory of man who cannot find warmth around his hearth?

Inability to appreciate your own gifts every day of your life, and put them to use in howsoever much narrow turf you are provided with, amounts to suicide.
