"The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life — only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father." [John 10:17-18]
Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist. [Matthew 17:11-13]
When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” [Matthew 16:13-16]
Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed, because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead, others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life. [Luke 9:7-8]
As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" [John 9:1-2]
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. [Mark 3:29]
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. [Psalm 68:4]
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. [Isaiah 53:5]
A new documentary, set to air on the History Channel April 20th, called The Nails of the Cross features claims that the nails which affixed the hands of Jesus Christ to the Cross have been located. Israeli investigative filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici argues that the artifacts were discovered in the grave of the Jewish high priest Caiaphas whose claim to historical infamy is handing Jesus over to the Romans for crucifixion.
“What we are bringing to the world is the best archaeological argument ever made that two of the nails from the crucifixion of Jesus have been found,” he told Reuters.
Just an FYI....the nails in the images related to this documentary do appear to be consistent with the diamond shaped birthmark on the back of my left hand that is forensic evidence of how I died in my past life, i.e., by being nailed to the Cross:
Professor Ian Stevenson noted how birthmarks are evidence of reincarnation in a paper, Birthmarks and Birth Defects Corresponding to Wounds on Deceased Persons, presented at the Eleventh Annual Meeting of the Society for Scientific Exploration held at Princeton University from June 11th to 13th, 1992:
Almost nothing is known about why pigmented birthmarks (moles or nevi) occur in particular locations of the skin. The causes of most birth defects are also unknown. About 35% of children who claim to remember previous lives have birthmarks and/or birth defects that they (or adult informants) attribute to wounds on a person whose life the child remembers. The cases of 210 such children have been investigated. The birthmarks were usually areas of hairless, puckered skin; some were areas of little or no pigmentation (hypopigmented macules); others were areas of increased pigmentation (hyperpigmented nevi). The birth defects were nearly always of rare types. In cases in which a deceased person was identified the details of whose life unmistakably matched the child's statements, a close correspondence was nearly always found between the birthmarks and/or birth defects on the child and the wounds on the deceased person. In 43 of 49 cases in which a medical document (usually a postmortem report) was obtained, it confirmed the correspondence between wounds and birthmarks (or birth defects). There is little evidence that parents and other informants imposed a false identity on the child in order to explain the child's birthmark or birth defect. Some paranormal process seems required to account for at least some of the details of these cases, including the birthmarks and birth defects.
Here's a YouTube video playlist that explores the evidence suggestive of reincarnation:
Reincarnation cases involving birthmarks:
Thus, the implication of the birthmark on my left hand is that, like Jesus of Nazareth, in my previous life I died by being nailed to the Cross:
The bottom line is this.
If God had not supernaturally intervened in my life with an apocalyptic vision of a future nuclear third world war, and then followed this up by revealing to me who I was in my past life, the ingredients never would have come into place to expose the forces of evil headquartered in the Kremlin who are setting the stage to annihilate Israel and America, vanquish Western Civilization and cynically "save" the world in the name of "god" via militant totalitarianism.
I am God's counterargument (as pathetic as this may seem) in the form of a truthful and loving being, an historical inflection point between the Creator and the created, who offers no more power than that of my own opinion which, if believed, is the source of this world's salvation and the means of finding the light of hope in the darkness of despair that man is concocting for himself. It's all about the indomitable human spirit of the individual overcoming those who fail to see the value of life in their pursuit of worldly conquest in utter disregard of God's Law. In other words, if not for my existence and the infinite creative potential of individuality, which is what God is all about IMHO (the Kingdom of God is within!), humanity would not have a chance. In a sense, I guess this is what it means to be 'the redeemer'.
As it stands, everyone just dismisses me as crazy, which may be an unforgivable sin, but I guess that's par for the course. Quite frankly, I hope everyone else is right. I wish that I am deluded, there is no Antichrist angling to conquer the world with thermonuclear force, and there's a future for U.S. in which I can aspire to live a normal life, i.e., my concerns are a figment of MY imagination and I can go about living the "American Dream" and have pleasure in unrighteousness like all around me. However, increasingly I see that world history is reacting to my personal circumstances in a way that is best explained by my being who I'm afraid I am, i.e., the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. If so, quite frankly I'm sorry for who I am.
For those who would prefer I keep my self-opinion to myself because there's just no way they'll believe me, I understand your thinking. However, if I'm correct, then consider what an affront to God I would commit by not presenting my case to the world? If I'm wrong, so be it, maybe some happy pills will someday alleviate my sense of despair at what appears to be mission impossible....no big deal. If I'm right, this is the best I can do no matter how futile everything seems to be. Either way, it is a damned if I do and damned if I don't predicament, and what seems extraordinarily unfair to me is that I had no choice in being "chosen", I apparently have no help with the ridiculous burden of having to "save the world", and all that's happened thus far is that I've effectively ruined my life for seemingly no gain whatsoever. I guess it is what it is, and my Father Who art in heaven is the one Who has to make this work because I can't.
And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth." [Revelation 19:6]
"The kingdom of this world is become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever." [Revelation 11:15]
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. [2 Thessalonians 2:8]
