Angels: Billy Graham Quotes

 

Quotes about Angels by Billy Graham:

When my time to die comes an angel will be there to comfort me. He will give me peace and joy even at that most critical hour, and usher me into the presence of God, and I will dwell with the Lord forever. Thank God for the ministry of His blessed angels. Billy Graham

There are nine orders of angels, to wit, angels, archangels, virtues, powers, principalities, dominations, thrones, cherubim, and seraphim…. Billy Graham 

Some believe strongly that each Christian may have his own guardian angel assigned to watch over him or her... Billy Graham

Angels speak. They appear and reappear. They feel with apt sense of emotion. While Angels may become visible by choice, our eyes are not conducted to see them ordinarily any more than we can see the dimensions of a nuclear field, the structure of atoms, or the electricity that flows through copper wiring….Billy Graham

Black Holes

By Andrew Zimmerman Jones
Updated September 01, 2016.
Question: What is a Black Hole?
What is a black hole? When do black holes form? Can scientists see a black hole? What is the “event horizon” of a black hole?
Answer: A black hole is a theoretical entity predicted by the equations of general relativity. A black hole is formed when a star of sufficient mass undergoes gravitational collapse, with most or all of its mass compressed into a sufficiently small area of space, causing infinite spacetime curvature at that point (a “singularity”). Such a massive spacetime curvature allows nothing, not even light, to escape from the “event horizon,” or border.
Black holes have never been directly observed, though predictions of their effects have matched observations. There exist a handful of alternate theories, such as Magnetospheric Eternally Collapsing Objects (MECOs), to explain these observations, most of which avoid the spacetime singularity at the center of the black hole, but the vast majority of physicists believe that the black hole explanation is the most likely physical representation of what is taking place.
Black Holes Before Relativity
In the 1700s, there were some who proposed that a supermassive object might draw light into it. Newtonian optics was a corpuscular theory of light, treating light as particles.
John Michell published a paper in 1784 predicting that an object with a radius 500 times that of the sun (but the same density) would have an escape velocity of the speed of light at its surface, and thus be invisible. Interest in the theory died in the 1900s, however, as the wave theory of light took prominence.
When rarely referenced in modern physics, these theoretical entities are referred to as “dark stars” to distinguish them from true black holes.
Black Holes from Relativity
Within months of Einstein’s publication of general relativity in 1916, the physicist Karl Schwartzchild produced a solution to Einstein’s equation for a spherical mass (called the Schwartzchild metric) … with unexpected results.
The term expressing the radius had a disturbing feature. It seemed that for a certain radius, the denominator of the term would become zero, which would cause the term to “blow up” mathematically. This radius, known as the Schwartzchild radius, rs, is defined as:
rs = 2GM/c2
G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass, and c is the speed of light.
Since Schwartzchild’s work proved crucial to understanding black holes, it is an odd coincidence that the name Schwartzchild translates to “black shield.”
Black Hole Properties
An object whose entire mass M lies within rs is considered to be a black hole. Event horizon is the name given to rs, because from that radius the escape velocity from the black hole’s gravity is the speed of light. Black holes draw mass in through gravitational forces, but none of that mass can ever escape.
A black hole is often explained in terms of an object or mass “falling into” it.
Y Watches X Fall Into a Black Hole
⦁ Y observes idealized clocks on X slowing down, freezing in time when X hits rs
⦁ Y observes light from X redshift, reaching infinity at rs (thus X becomes invisible – yet somehow we can still see their clocks. Isn’t ⦁ theoretical physics grand?)
⦁ X perceives noticeable change, in theory, though once it crosses rs it is impossible for it to ever escape from the gravity of the black hole. (Even light cannot escape the event horizon.)
Development of Black Hole Theory
In the 1920s, physicists Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar deduced that any star more massive than 1.44 solar masses (the Chadrasekhar limit) must collapse under general relativity. Physicist Arthur Eddington believed some property would prevent the collapse. Both were right, in their own way.
Robert Oppenheimer predicted in 1939 that a supermassive star could collapse, thus forming a “frozen star” in nature, rather than just in mathematics. The collapse would seem to slow down, actually freezing in time at the point it crosses rs. The light from the star would experience a heavy redshift at rs.
Unfortunately, many physicists considered this to only be a feature of the highly symmetrical nature of the Schwartzchild metric, believing that in nature such a collapse would not actually take place due to asymmetries.
It wasn’t until 1967 – nearly 50 years after the discovery of rs – that physicists Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose showed that not only were black holes a direct result of general relativity, but also that there was no way of halting such a collapse. The discovery of pulsars supported this theory and, shortly thereafter, physicist John Wheeler coined the term “black hole” for the phenomenon in a December 29, 1967 lecture.
Subsequent work has included the discovery of Hawking radiation, in which black holes can emit radiation.
Black Hole Speculation
Black holes are a field that draws theorists and experimenters who want a challenge. Today there is almost universal agreement that black holes exist, though their exact nature is still in question. Some believe that the material that falls into black holes may reappear somewhere else in the universe, as in the case of a wormhole.
One significant addition to the theory of black holes is that of Hawking radiation, developed by British physicist Stephen Hawking in 1974.

Stephen Hawkings:
<H2>Research on Black Holes</H2>
<P>Groundbreaking findings from another young cosmologist, Roger Penrose, about
the fate of stars and the creation of black holes tapped into Hawking’s own
fascination with how the universe began. This set him on a career course that
reshaped the way the world thinks about black holes and the universe.</P>
<P>While physical control over his body diminished (he’d be forced to use a
wheelchair by 1969), the effects of his disease started to slow down. In 1968, a
year after the birth of his son Robert, Hawking became a member of the Institute
of Astronomy in Cambridge.</P>
<P>The next few years were a fruitful time for Hawking. A daughter, Lucy,  was
born to Stephen and Jane in 1969, while Hawking continued with his research. (A
third child, Timothy, arrived 10 years later.) He then published his first book,
the highly technical <EM>The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time</EM> (1973),
with G.F.R. Ellis. He also teamed up with Penrose to expand upon his friend’s
earlier work.</P>
<P>In 1974, Hawking’s research turned him into a celebrity within the scientific
world when he showed that black holes aren’t the information vacuums that
scientists had thought they were. In simple terms, Hawking demonstrated that
matter, in the form of radiation, can  escape the gravitational force of a
collapsed star. Hawking radiation was born.</P>
<P>The announcement sent shock waves of excitement through the scientific world,
and put Hawking on a path that’s been marked by awards, notoriety and
distinguished titles. He was named a fellow of the Royal Society at the age of
32, and later earned the prestigious Albert Einstein Award, among other
honors.</P>
<P>Teaching stints followed, too. One was at Caltech in Pasadena, California,
where Hawking served as visiting professor, making subsequent visits over the
years. Another was at  Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge. In 1979, Hawking
found himself back at Cambridge University, where he was named to one of
teaching’s most renowned posts, dating back to 1663: the Lucasian Professor of
Mathematics.</P>

Cleopatra Necklace made from recycled magazines and hand painted in aboriginal colors by the women of Sri Lanka.
“Save Lanka Kids” humanitarian program provides meals, education and support for children and their moms in poverty. The women are provided with discarded materials such as magazines, scrap leather, and pop bottle caps. From these items they fashion beautiful jewelry. The Tidball family pay the moms for their work so they can purchase groceries with their earnings.. A shelter is also available and a drop in center for HIV testing and treatment.

PositivePage has raised $1000.00 to benefit these moms and street kids.

“Human Trafficking Happens Everywhere”
⦁ Sriyani Tidball published in SpringerLink
Message From Sriyani:
⦁ University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Journalism and Mass Communications assistant professor of practice Sriyani Tidball’s research on sex trafficking has been published. The study, entitled “Buying Sex On-line from Girls: NGO Representatives, Law Enforcement Officials, and Public Officials Speak out About Human Trafficking—A Qualitative Analysis,” is available on SpringerLink.

⦁ Tidball collaborated with UNL College of Education and Human Sciences professor John W. Creswell and Ph.D. candidate Mingying Zheng to analyze the data collected on the Microsoft grant that Tidball had completed on the role of the Internet when men buy girls. Using qualitative data analysis software MAXQDA Tidball, Creswell and Mingying Zheng analyzed the data collected from the 38 qualitative interviews completed in four different locations in the United States about the how the increased use of technology and the high rate of trafficking minors have led to a need to better understand purchasing girls online for sex.here is such a lack of research done on the issue of sex trafficking in the U.S., and now with the ease of purchase due to our thriving Internet, our young girls have become just another commodity available for purchase,” Tidball said. “This study confirmed that all my fears regarding trafficking in the US were true. It is time to band together and be the change that needs to happen.”

⦁ From the research six themes emerged, “(1) familiarity of the interviewees with sex trafficking and its research: (2) law enforcement anti-trafficking practices, (3) the buying side of sex trafficking, (4) the criminal treatment of victims, (5) lack of safe places for girls to stay, and (6) the prevention, intervention, and assessment of sex trafficking programs,” according to the study.

⦁Tidball has been honored time and again for her commitment to women’s rights and ending human trafficking. The Council for International Exchange of Scholars awarded her a Fulbright Specialist grant to serve as a communication specialist in communications and journalism with the Centre for Women’s Research in Sri Lanka. The UNL Women’s Center honored Tidball as a “woman of character, courage and commitment” during Women’s Week 2015. And this spring, Tidball participated in the Shut Out Trafficking campaign on the UNL campus as a keynote speaker.
⦁ The article will available on Springer Link online and then printed in their Journal by the end of the year.

The Book of Enoch and Bible Prophesy

Posted on February 7, 2009 by Don

The Book of Enoch comes up now and then in Bible prophecy. So you might want to be aware of the arguments presented in and about this book. You have to be very careful here because some people will use the Book of Enoch for actually proving that aliens exist.

Alien Resistance and other Christian websites like them say that these beings will be nothing more than fallen angels setting the world up for great deception.

The theory by those who run the Alien Resistance website is that there will be a great deception in the last days carried out by fallen angels who will pass themselves off to the world as aliens from another world or dimension. They say these fallen Angels also produced the Nephilim that we are told about in Genesis in pre-flood days.

Ill let you decide what is true.  Even today, if you talk about angels producing offspring with women the majority of Christians will look at you like you have two heads because they see conflict in one misunderstood verse (Mt 22:30). Never mind that a literal reading of Genesis makes what happened quite clear. The popular Sons of Seth Theory that almost everyone in Christianity teaches is probably just plan wrong.

One thing for certain, is that you will not hear about these things in mainstream Christianity. So if there is truth here, Satan did a pretty good job of covering it up leaving almost everyone on earth wide open for a staged alien great deception.

I believe the fallen angels did create the Nephilim on the earth. It is not just the Book of Enoch that tells us that angels came to earth and had offspring with women. Josephus and other ancient writings also tell us that happened. Even so, I do not know how much truth is in the manuscripts of the Book of Enoch about pre-flood events. This whole subject is great food for thought, but it can be a great diversion and even lead into deception if you are not careful and grounded in the scriptures .

For more information on this topic you might explore the Alien Resistance website. It is a Christian site that primary deals with the fallen angels and the UFO connection

Here is a link to the  Book of Enoch.

Jerusalem Post Reports: Germany and Israel Are Friends

Ben-Gurion spoke of the importance to recognize that Germany had repented for its sins.

“My people cannot forget its past – but we remember the past not in order to brood upon it, but in order that it shall never recur,” Ben-Gurion said. “I said in the Knesset, the parliament of Israel, last summer, that the Germany of today is not the Germany of yesterday. After having met the chancellor, I am sure that judgment was correct.”

Ties between the two countries grew gradually, and today, Germany is one of Israel’s best friends, with the two states enjoying flourishing ties in military cooperation, trade, cultural programs and many other fields.
