Therefore, it is highly important that we realize how the various ocean basins were initially formed in a like manner, as it also explains why all the ocean bottoms all ended up being so very thin! Did you know that there was also nearly a complete absence of sediments found in many places along the ocean floors? Did you ever hear that it was not until the 1960's that anyone every proved, or ever knew, that there were no thick sedimentary layers at all! In that regard, what everyone had expected was thousands of feet of sediments, and truly that was in fact actually needed, to prove that the oceans were (Quote) "millions of years old. " Not only that but when THERE WERE fossils that were found, etc., none of them proved to be of any great age, and none of them were anywhere at all near being considered as ancient. Lastly, all the messed up logic about the ocean waters, is rapidly changed when we are finally told that the oceans actually contain the flood waters, and they were "derived from the earth's interior" during the Flood of Noah.
51 "And I said, "Sovereign Lord, show me this - why I saw a man coming up from the heart of the sea.
52 And he said to me, "Just as no one can seek out or know what is in the depth of the sea, so no one on
earth can see my Son, or those who are with him, except at the time of his Day." II Esdras 13:51 and 52.
The Apocrypha, Edgar Goodspeed and Moses Hadas, 1959 Edition
"deal repeatedly with the major turning points in scientific development associated with the names of Copernicus, Newton, Lavoisier, and Einstein. More clearly than most other episodes in history or at least the physical sciences, (changes like) these display what all scientific revolutions are all about. Each of them necessitated the community's rejection of one time-honored scientific theory in favor of another compatible with it. Each produced a consequent shift in the problems available for scientific scrutiny and in the standards by which the profession determined what should count as an admissible problem or as a legitimate problem-solution." Kuhn writes, "Each transformed the scientific imagination in ways that we shall ultimately need to described as a transformation of the world within which scientific work was done. Such changes, together with the controversies that almost always accompany them, are the defining characteristics of scientific revolutions.
These characteristics emerge with particular clarity from a study of, say, the Newtonian or the chemical revolution. It is, however, a fundamental thesis of this essay that they can also be retrieved from the study of many other episodes that were not so obviously revolutionary. For the far smaller professional group affected by them, Maxwell's equations were as revolutionary as Einstein's, and they were resisted accordingly. The invention of other new theories regularly, and appropriately, evolves the same response from some of the specialists or whose areas of special competence they impinge. For these men the new theory implies a change in the rules governing the prior practice of normal science. Inevitably, therefore, it reflects upon much scientific work they hare already successfully completed. That is why a new theory, however special its range of application, is seldom or never just an increment to what is already known. Its assimilation requires the reconstruction of prior theory and the re-evaluation of prior fact, as 8intrinsically revolutionary process that is seldom completed by a single man and never overnight. No wonder historians have had difficulty in dating precisely this extended process that their vocabulary implies them to view as an isolated event."

The Books of The Apocrypha Were Removed: I will repeat, what I saw was - thousands and thousands, even millions of martyrs who were loudly protesting! Many of them were actually hollering and yelling as if they were at a pep rally or something like that! They made so much noise it started to think that maybe a riot was going to break out! There were millions of martyrs loudly protesting! I was growing fearful because they were so loud, and also because there wereso many of them protesting! Josephus, the Jewish historian wrote, "They were killed for believing in the “allieddocuments,” i.e., "the books of the Apocrypha!" And in the early 1800's, in The Apocrypha by Edgar J. Goodspeed and Moses Hadas, on page "XXV" in the introduction, Moses Hadas has explained that (quote) "The ordinary edition of the English Bible (had) included the Apocrypha. The British and (the) Foreign Bible Society, founded in 1804, (had) included the Apocrypha in the English and foreign language Bibles it "subventioned,"(. . . meaning they provided them with an allocation, an allotment, or a subsidy. . .) "but the practice was vigorously protested, especially by the Edinburgh branch of the Society. The protestors had their way, and in 1826 a formal rule was formally adopted. "The Principles of the Society exclude the circulation of these Books, or parts of Books, which are usually termed Apocryphal. The action of the London society confirmed the American Bible Society (founded in New York in 1816) in its own practice, and commercial publishers naturally followed the same practice. In consequence, general familiarity with the books of the Apocrypha declined, though they were included in small editions of the authorized version issued by Oxford and Cambridge presses and also in separate printings."
And When Living Among Sinners He was "Taken Up." Soon after the Lord had helped me locate the apocrypha, in a book titled "The Wisdom of Solomon," one of the more popular books in the apocrypha, it says . . . 10 "Because he pleased God well, he was loved by Him, 11 and when living among sinners he was "taken up." 12 He was caught up, so that wickedness might not alter his understanding, or guile deceive his soul. 13 For the spell of wickedness obscures what is good, and the instability of desire perverts the innocent mind. Being perfected in a little while he has fulfilled long years. 14 For his soul pleased the Lord. Therefore he hurried (him) from the midst of wickedness. The people saw but did not perceive, or take such a thing to heart. 15 For favor and mercy are with His chosen, and He watches over His saints."
The Allied Documents - THEY WOULD NOT ALTER ONE SYLLABLE! As it is also written, this too clearly explains the absolute reverence the Jewish people had for "The Allied Documents," and THEY WOULD ENDURE TORTURES AND DEATH - IN EVERY FORM - RATHER THAN UTTER A SINGLE WORD AGAINST THE LAWS (i.e., in the Old Testament) AND THE ALLIED DOCUMENTS.
The fact that all the Apocrypha has been removed from the Bibles which we now cherish so highly, should tell you something about why many of the martyrs in Heaven are actually crying out to be sent back to this earth! They have seen what has been going on "down here," and they are truly, very anxious to "avenge their blood on this earth!"
When I Was In Heaven, I Was Taken "Under The Wing of God!" To return to the part about all the martyrs yelling and hollering when I was in Heaven, what happened next is that the Lord God Almighty came to my rescue! He had a quick way to protect me. He simply reached out and He took me "under His wing!" (See Psalms 91:4.) Yes, I wrote it out that way because that is exactly what happened! He took me "under His Wing!" Ever since then in my heart I have "trusted in Him without any reservations." The Bible says, "His truth is my shield and buckler." I have even told the same account to many others, including about what I saw when happened to peep out, looking downward where I could just see a little, under my arm. What I actually saw then was the rounded ends of some of the feathers that were a part of His wing! The ends of the fathers were about the size of large cantaloupes. Based on seeing that, complete with what look like some blood vessels, I do know for a fact that the Lord God Almighty does have wings, and He had even covered me and protected me, with His wing! (Psalms 91:4) Therefore, I must say that “‘NO, the Bible is not wrong, and it is not using symbolic language when it tells us about God Almighty having wings. “
In Heaven, They Were Singing of His Glory: "He Comes This Way . . . " " He Comes This Way . . ." On an earlier occasion something important also happened when I was listening to the angels sing of the great glory of God Almighty! Their music was absolutely wonderful, and I listened to them intently for quite some time. That time of Angel's music slowed down, when there came a very distant and high sounding chorus from "on high!" In the distance you could hear them repeating this phrase: "He comes this way.... He comes this way... The Lord God Almighty comes this way...." "What is that?" I asked, and one of them who was standing nearby. That Angel said to me, "We always hear that as God draws near to where we are, so everyone knows when The Lord God Almighty is coming into the area. Watch! This is when we will be able to see and look upon him from a great distance.
Look!" the angel said, pointing and directing my attention to an area in the nearby, cloudless sky. I looked up as I had been directed and what I saw looked like a super-fast moving glider, moving like a jet across the cloudless, blue sky. He did not flap his wings like a bird does, however. They were nevertheless great wings(!) and he came straight in for a very rapid landing. Then, he more or less shrugged his shoulders and then those really big wings folded, and they fit very neatly across his back. He was so bright, however, that a great amount of power was just pouring from his body. Those were "the clouds of glory," or what is called "glory clouds," and these things and activities could only be viewed briefly, even from a considerable distance. Therefore . . . no, I am absolutely sure that the Bible is not using symbolic language to tell us about this. It is a real fact that God Almighty does have wings, and while I have shared this with many people I think that there have been only a few who readily indicate that have truly believe it!
What Is Meant By "Not Having A Heavenly Purview" "God doesn't have feathers!" they say! (I never said He did!) But, in their opinion, God just doesn't even have wings either! I saw him when He crossed the sky, as he was coming into the area of The Temple, however. He "glided in" quite rapidly and everyone who was there could see Him while he was going along at a rapid rate, "in the air." The real problem is, everyone here on earth LACKS having any type of "Heavenly purview" or ‘the range, insight, and understanding’ needed to support any cognizance of the things in that dimension. In the dictionary. . . pur•view (noun) means: 1. the range operation, authority, control, concern, etc., 2. The range of vision, insight, or understanding. 3. Law., a. that which is provided or enacted in a statute, as distinguished from the preamble, b. the purpose or scope of a statute., and 4. The full scope or compass of any document, statement, subject, or book, etc.
What that means is that because Heaven is in what we know of as "another dimension," when someone has been there and they try another person about it, or of it, because it is a different dimension from this one it turns out that almost regardless of what one says it will almost always go right past those persons who have never been there! It’s just like “in one ear and out the other.” In addition to that, the person who hasn’t been there remains fully unaware, or “mindless” in regard to learning any of the differing properties or features of either Heaven and/or God. I remember when I was yet a small boy and my parents took me all the way to Milan, Michigan. That was because my dad wanted to give me back to my real mom, but he called it “giving me back to the Indians.” It took a long time to get there, but once we were there I was escorted 'out to the barn' by my cousin, to collect some eggs. His name was Jeffery and he said, "Just reach up under that chicken and see if she's got some eggs under her."
When I did as I had been directed, the feathers were very warm and so fuzzy to the touch that it completely reminded me of being "Under His Wing!" It struck me so suddenly, so hard, and with so much impact that I immediately pulled my hand out from under that chicken! At the same time I was reeling back, about eight or nine feet, before I could catch my balance! My cousin, was standing nearby and when he saw all this happen and he immediately said, "What's the matter! Did that big bad hen peck your hand, or did she just try and peck you!" He also began to laugh like crazy.
“Don’t tell me that you think that God is a ’great big chicken!’” I immediately said, "No! I just didn’t feel worthy about doing that because it really reminded me a lot about being back there, in Heaven and about how warm and fuzzy it was when God put his wing around me to shield me from all the noise!” My cousin was roaring with laughter. Of course, that wasn't what I was thinking at all. In fact, I didn't even feel worthy of having any feelings like that, which reminded me so much of being "under God's wing!" Regardless of all that, ever since then the Lord has been "my refuge and my habitation." (Psalms 4:9) I can also tell you that, nor do his wings "flap up and down" as they are not like the wings of any kind of bird, with the one exception of the enormous wing span of a soaring eagle. I tried my best to explain it to Jeffery, by also telling him, “They fold up so neatly and so close to His body that you do not even notice them!” At the time, he didn't even try to visualize what I was saying.
So, a little more about the chicken. . . That is, I would also share with you the fact that is where the scriptures also say, (quote), "no evil will befall me, (verse 10) and He (God,) has 'given his angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways!" (verse 11) I can assure you that He has always "delivered me," and protected me, ever since I can remember. Even long before I had grown up much at all, my mother had repeatedly told me and taught me that I was to always love my real Father, who was in Heaven. and be sure and "set my love upon Him," and it is He that 'sets me on high!'" I can assure you that I had some lengthy discussion, talking with God when I was in Heaven; and there are many more discussions that we have had, ever since that time. As the scriptures have put it, I have even "known His name!" (Psalms 4:14) What they are driving at in that verse, is that our objective should always be one of "knowing God" in a very personal way. This looks like it might be a good point to drop in the third major information page, or Exhibit 3.
This next illustration is for those who still don't believe it.
This will also help you to understand what has happened:
The Wisdom of Solomon and many other books of the Apocrypha were all in the first Bible that was ever written; that was the early Greek version of the Bible which is known as the Septuagint. You will probably be also very surprised to learn that the first Bibles had always contained the other books of the Apocrypha. Moreover, as is noted above Exhibit three, many of the martyrs willingly and even cheerfully would give up their lives, rather than forsake or speak against what was written in any of the books of the Apocrypha, or any of the other books of the Bible. You ask, “Where did I ever get that idea, or that information?” You think it to be true because of the super large smear campaign that has been going on, against the Apocrypha, for the past one hundred years or so. Nevertheless, here’s the real truth . . .
In the introduction to The Apocrypha by Goodspeed and Moses Hadas, you will find it explained that the Apocrypha was only removed from the Bible in the early 1800's. On page xxv in the introduction Moses Hadas writes that it was removed after being "vigorously protested" by the Edinburgh branch of the English Bible Society. Moses Hadas wrote the introduction of The Apocrypha by Edgar J. Goodspeed. He also wrote on "page xxv" in the introduction to "The American Translation of The Apocrypha,” a part that I discovered when I was 40 years old. It was in 1981, when the Lord led me to uncover these facts. At that time I found that the content of Chapter 4 in The Wisdom of Solomon definitely tells my own incredible story! The following verses are part of Chapter 4 in the Wisdom of Solomon . . .
10 "Because he pleased God well, he was loved by Him,
11 and when living among sinners he was "taken up!"
12 He was caught up, (into Heaven, i.e., Paradise, and the Presence of God)
so that wickedness might not alter his understanding, or guile deceive his soul.
13 For the spell of wickedness obscures what is good,
and the instability of desire perverts the innocent mind.
Being perfected in a little while (by being admitted into Paradise,) he has fulfilled long years.
14 For his soul pleased the Lord. Therefore he hurried (him) from the midst of wickedness.
The people saw (how much he had changed,) but did not perceive, or take such a thing to heart.
15 For favor and mercy are with His chosen, and He watches over His saints."
