All things supernatural of Iniel derive ultimately from the Name of the LORD over the Logos of the world, and through the Logos of the world the Name may be sought for.

The Logos of the world can be interacted with through the emanations of the five fundamental elements. These make themselves known in the following five series, each of nine agents:

“One of the Few” Book Review


I was offered this book for a review, and I am glad I accepted. While there are flaws, even major flaws, in the author’s thinking and conclusions at various points, he sees through the world and its facades with refreshing boldness.

My uncle was a Marine, and an Iraq war veteran, like the author of the book. I already had glimpses of that culture as I was growing up, and I was glad to see more details of life in the Marines.

Sunrise Resurrection Morning


Sunrise Resurrection morning.

“And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.”

(I Cor. 15:17)

I love our front door, and the symbolism that is in it (probably by accident).

Not Valentine’s Day, 2014

There was supposed to be a picture of a Lily of the Valley here, sorry about that. It was a good one too.

“As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.” Song of Songs 2:2

Not Valentine’s Day, 2014

Well I know it is not Valentine’s day, but my family celebrated it today, since it was the first day that my father had off work to celebrate it on. So that is one reason why I am posting this today.
The other reason was that our power was out on Valentine’s day (wind storm).


The only time God said something was not good in the creation was when he said, “It is not good that man should be alone.”
But is not God’s companionship enough? But what does enough mean? God is enough in that everything that we need we receive from him, and according to God, men need to not be alone.

Single people have a special role to play, but it seems to me to always be in connection with extreme circumstances: Jeremiah was forbidden to marry because where he lived, in Jerusalem, was cursed, and any children that he bore would die. Similarly Paul told the Church of the Corinthians that it would be better for the unmarried to remain unmarried, “because of the present distress… that they may attend upon the work of the Lord without distraction.”

But Jeremiah wrote letters to the Jews in Babylon (who were not cursed) telling them to marry and have children, “And be multiplied and not diminished.” and Paul said that if an elder was not the husband of one wife, ruling a family well, he should not be a bishop or deacon of a Church, “For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the Church of God?”

I am passionately looking forward and working towards when I can be the husband of a virtuous woman. Certain things must be done first, for that to happen.
As a Christian I must be in a position to support a wife.

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
I Timothy 5:8

Also, any relationship I make must come from a mutual relationship with God. If someone is not a friend of God they cannot be my friend, and if anyone is a friend of God then they are also my friend.

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
John 15:14

If someone wants me, but only in spite of my beliefs, the relationship could not be heartfelt, because what I believe I believe with my heart.

6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.
Song of Songs 8

One Jot, or One Tittle, Shall Never Pass from the Law

Christ said, “Until heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle, shall in no wise pass from the law, until all be fulfilled.”

Some say that this means that the law has passed, since Christ said, “I am come to fulfill.”
Even at first glance it is plain that this is not acceptable, since people had been coming to fulfill the law and the prophets for thousands of years, and when Christ will come again, he will again come to fulfill the law and the prophets.

Christ said, “Until all be fulfilled.” not, “Until part is fulfilled.” The law and the prophets speak of the end of time and of eternity, so that all will be fulfilled only when eternity is fulfilled.

In other words, one jot, or one tittle, shall never pass from the law.

And what if one jot did pass from the law? What would that affect?

Christ said that all the law hangs on the love of God, and the love of one’s neighbor. He also says that the love of one’s neighbor is the law and the prophets. So, a change in the law would mean a change in whether you should love God and your neighbor.

And if the law has passed, then the love of God, and of our neighbor, has passed.

Some say that the love of your neighbor replaces the law, but this is to make God a liar. It is to say that the law and godly love are different, and even contrary, when God says they are one and the same. God never gave a law that was contrary to love, that would be removed by love. God did not take away the law, and replace it with the law.

God says that we should love because it is the law,

and we should keep the law because it is love.

That is why he says what he says next:

“Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Because the law will never pass away, the commandments must be kept, to the extent that a person’s respect of the very least commandments of the law and the prophets is what his greatness among followers of Christ is based on.

And what he says after that shows how the idea that the law has been destroyed is a truly damnable heresy:

“For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

Will you be great in the kingdom of heaven?

Will you enter the kingdom of heaven?

It Is By Grace, the Old Testament Says So.

Paul argued that we are not saved by our own works because those of the Old Testament were not saved by their own works.

13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Romans 4

O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
Daniel 9:18

For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
Hebrews 10:4

From the beginning salvation was by God’s mercy which is by Christ and by no one and nothing else.
In this if in nothing else the Old and New Testaments are exactly the same.

No man, past, present, or future, cometh unto the Father but by Christ Jesus.

Romans 9 and Blasphemy

In Romans 9 Paul explains why it is not wrong for God to create people, knowing they would sin. He creates people whom he knew would sin, in order to show his power over any who stand against him, and to show his wrath against sin.

Paul explains it best, but he knew that some would twist his words, and accuse God of willing that they sin, and kick against the punishment of God.

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
II Peter 3:16

He rebukes this accusation that God wills that people sin, calling it blasphemy.

“Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?”

He says it is not wrong for God to create people he knew would sin in order to punish them, just as a potter creates certain vessels for dishonoring uses, such as for carrying filth.

But some twist his words even further, saying not only that God makes people sin, but that it is not wrong for God to make people sin, and that therefore it is not blasphemy to say that he does.

They believe that Paul did not mean it is wrong to say that God makes people sin, but instead that Paul meant it is wrong to say it is wrong for God to make people sin.

Twisting Paul’s words to the opposite of what he said, and the opposite of what the Word of God says from beginning to end.

If a person said that God was a liar, would it make it any less blasphemous if they said it was not wrong for God to lie?
It would make it doubly blasphemous: accusing God and excusing sin at one time.

In the same way it is doubly blasphemous to say not only that God forces people to sin, but that it is not wrong for him to do so.

Besides that the Bible says plainly that God does not lie, and even more plainly that he does not wish for anyone to sin.
