Cyberwarfare is a reality now even if it hasn't happened on a large scale yet. You can't do much about a denial of service attack, but you can keep your antimalware and operating system updated.

"Polarity theory" seems kind of like Taoist philosophy. I think things like electricity or even the atom show there is positive and negative energy in the universe that may seem to contrast each other but also complement each other. I believe God subjects us to the darkness so we can fully appreciate the light. We have the knowledge of good and evil by experiencing them both, but I think our suffering now is nothing compared to the joy we will experience when God is "all in all." I think "consciousness" is a living soul's experience of awareness. We perceive the world through our senses and process the information with our minds. I think we all start out self-centered as infants thinking only of our own survival, but eventually we should mature and learn to care for others. I think that's the lesson of life. "Love your associate as yourself." (Leviticus 19:18; Romans 13:9; Galatians 5:14) Some folks speak of higher consciousness, cosmic consciousness, spiritual consciousness, or Christ consciousness, but I think you can get into new age philosophy if you're not careful to discern the spirits. I think heightened spiritual awareness, or consciousness, is simply what scripture calls being "in the spirit." I think those who truly love God and their fellow human beings experience it.

Apparently lots of server trouble.  Hang in there, not sure what Gary's going to do but they've been working on it.  We don't usually get blow-by-blow details, often just watch like everyone else.  We'll see.

Ronny to Jabcat:
Odd thing,yesterday I couldn't get on here,so I was trying to get on another group or two,that I've posted in,in the past and they weren't working as well.

Hey Ronny..Gary emailed several days that there's a major cyber attack going on right now, sent me a map showing the assault, where it's coming from etc...i don't know where the other sites are based out of you were trying to get on, but one of the hardest hit is st. louis where TM is generally located from...strange stuff

Matthew 11:29
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Lounge / Consciousness Kindergarten polarity theory.

So I have, in my life, cried to God asking for understanding a lot about why we had to go through so much pain and suffering and this is an attempt to explain what I have come to understand. I believe that Consciousness exists in the comparison of polarities left right up down over under good bad hot and cold black white and on and on. If I consider this idea in the light of or through the filter of semantics it makes perfect sense. The idea that the map is not the land defined by it. I can not know the territory defined by looking at its map, I would only know of it. I could not know how it feels to walk in the forest, to smell it and walk barefoot on the ground or drink from a stream within it. Knowing of and knowing are two very different things. So I understand the necessity of experiencing this life of polarities and I now know the attributes of God instead of knowing of them, love, peace, joy, just to name a few. My spirit longs for them and cries out for them in those periods of feeling separated from them. I am convinced that this is the purpose of this world, it is consciousness preschool or kindergarten and its purpose is for us to know God rather then know of him. I wonder what 1st grade will  bring to us?     :banana:

  Dear Shev
  You have made the direct and valid point
  that the elect and chosen of God were always hated by the world and mocked and mistreated    and    harmed   by those whom are supposed to "embrace them "   
  they are the  ones sent to  Blast the  warnings and   save the DAY !!     the ones we are told to listen to  , in order to   keep from the impending judgment to come

 Every prophet sent was   LIKE JESUS CHRIST in His generation      sent  by the HOLY SPIRIT    witness     and the WORD   of GOD   to repent 
Now we have Jesus Christ in those whom are to come in His name    , they also will be scourged and mocked and made fun of and  mistreated
  no Different than Jesus was and KILLED      by the message sent     ,  Come in  to the fold or receive the judgments
   and they ALL   will reap what they  sow   
 The same suffering they     gave  , they also will receive      , till they realize what they have done   !!
   their eyes will see what they have done  on whom they pierced       
  what did those brothers do when they realized what they done to Joseph ?
 I agree with you its all about FORGIVENESS        and making those   humbled and ashamed for what they have done !!!

  Genesis 5015 And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, It may be that Joseph will hate us, and will fully requite us all the evil which we did unto him.

16 And they sent a message unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,

17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin, for that they did unto thee evil. And now, we pray thee, forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we are thy servants.

19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

20 And as for you, ye meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years.
   Jesus on the Cross was  said FORGIVE THEM FATHER for they know not what they do !!
 This is how the Lamb of God takes away the sin of the world     !
   every eye  shall see Him  and mourn in humility and even be ashamed   for the sin of their nakedness  !! Rev 1 ;17   

6and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father-- to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

 7 BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him;

 and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.

8"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
