■■■■ Every Nation ■■■■

December 25, 2018

After Jesus was risen, He met with His Disciples in Galilee and told them: All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

There are 195 nations and people in 176 nations have read Gene McVay on Guard blogs on WordPress.

Those 19 nations I have failed to penetrate are hard nuts to crack, so to speak.

The Gideons are banned in Afghanistan, Algeria, China, Comoros, Djibouti, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Maldives, Mauritania, Morocco, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Yemen.

Going into these nations and some others and teaching and baptizing them would be impossible but, with God, all things are possible.

2,000 years ought to be long enough to fulfill the Great Commission since men walked on the Moon 40 years ago.

Jesus didn’t command us to walk on the Moon or freak out about global warming!

Jesus made no mention of building giant church buildings or cathedrals!

John the Baptist didn’t have a grand office in a palacial church.

Can we all get together and get serious about doing what Jesus told us to do?

Expedition to The Garden of Eden

December 22, 2018

If Gene McVay could put together an expedition to one place on Earth, it would be to the remnants of The Garden of Eden. I was pretty sure I knew the location of the garden long before I studied the geography.

I realized that places are very important to God. The great King David was chosen by God to rule Israel when he was a young boy and did establish Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and rule for about 40 years. David was born in Bethlehem and Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

Abraham was commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac and was prepared to sacrifice Isaac when he was stopped. I am sure the location where the sacrifice was to take placed is the exact same place where Jesus was crucified almost 2,000 years later. Some think the Temple was built there but the Temple was built on a thrashing floor and could be rebuilt today without disturbing any nearby structures. No part of the old fortress named after Cleopatra’s boyfriend is the Holy Temple.

So it is my opinion that human life began in The Garden of Eden when God created Adam and Eve during 4004 BC or 6,022 years ago. If some scholar tells you man did something before 6,022 years ago they would be mistaken. I believe God created a lot of things before 4004 BC including the Angels, the universe, prehistoric animals and things we will learn about during eternity but not one single human.

Some 4,366 years ago in 2348 BC, a young 600 year old man built an Ark and saved eight humans and all the verities of animals from the Great Flood. If some scholar tells you something happened before 2348 BC, you should know that was before the flood.

The flood can be confusing to some people unless you read and comprehend what the Bible says. The flood lasted about a year. Some say 371 days but I won’t quibble.

The Bible story goes like this, “The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became visible.

After forty days Noah opened a window he had made in the ark and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth. Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground. But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark. He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth. He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.

By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry. By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.”

If you just skim over the story it might not make sense to you. You see, when the Ark rested it was long before the tops of the mountains could be seen. The King James Version makes it clearer, “the ark rested … upon the mountains of Ararat.” That means the Ark was not moving or tossing upon the water that covered the whole earth. As the water receded Noah could clearly see where he was located amid the mountains of Ararat. Did you catch that? Not Mount Ararat but the mountains of Ararat. The top of a 16,854 foot mountain is not a good place to disembark from the Ark.

When the Ark finally ended up on dry land, I am absolutely convinced that is was in the exact same location as The Garden of Eden but 1,656 years after the garden had been created and long after it had been off limits to humans. During 2347 BC when the whole earth was populated with only 8 people, The Garden of Eden had spent a year submerged and probably had been ravaged by mudslides but The Garden of Eden is The Garden of Eden.

If you want to do some population studies, calculate how many people can be produced in 4,367 years starting with four couples.  This alone should convince you that the story that modern man evolved 50,000 years ago would make the population of the Earth in the trillions.

So how do we know where The Garden of Eden was located? That should even be very simple for even the dumbest scholars if they would bother to read the Holy Bible.

We know that a river flowed out of the garden and then that river was divided and became four rivers. Two of those rivers are recognizable today, the Tigress and the Euphrates. There is only one way a river can flow out of a garden and that would be from a spring in the garden. If you can find the source of the Euphrates and the source of the source, that would be The Garden of Eden.

Turns out the source of the Euphrates and likely the source of the Tigress before the flood is the Murat River also known as the Eastern Euphrates. The source of the Murat River is northeast of lake Van not far from Mount Ararat and very close to Noah’s Ark National Park in Eastern Turkey. That is where the remains of Noah’s Ark reside, probably after sliding some distance from the original location. There’s not much left of the ark after 4,365 years.

Lake Van is the largest lake in Turkey and is also the world’s largest endorheic lake. That means having no outlet. Since Lake Van is 5,380 feet high, Noah’s Ark and The Garden of Eden would likely be around 7,000 feet elevation. There are harsh winters in the area but Lake Van almost never freezes because of the salt content.

The photo of Lake Van is Akdamar Island and the Holy Cross Cathedral, a 10th-century Armenian church and monastic complex.

If I am correct and almost all the scholars are wrong, The Garden of Eden is close to Noah’s Ark National Park and so are two trees, The Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

In case you think The Tree of Life may be dead, it is mentioned three times in the Book of Revelation.

In Revelation 2:7
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

And twice In Revelation 22
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Will you listen to the Apostle John? Jesus looked down from the cross and made John responsible for His mother. Jesus trusted John and that’s good enough for me.

How Long will President Obama’s Deep State Military Hang Around?

December 16, 2018

The headlines read: Former decorated Green Beret, after years of investigations, charged in death of Taliban bomb maker!

A former Green Beret who told Fox News in 2016 that he killed a Taliban bomb maker nearly a decade ago during combat operations in Afghanistan is now being charged in the man’s death — a move his lawyer says is an act of betrayal by the Army. “I think he’s been betrayed,” his attorney, Phillip Stackhouse, told Fox News when asked how the Army has treated Golsteyn.

The once-decorated soldier, who had been on voluntary excess leave amid the latest investigation, has been living in a newly bought home with his wife and a 2-month-old baby in Virginia, working for the International Association of Firefighters, Stackhouse said.

Golsteyn was informed of the murder charge earlier this week after being ordered back into active duty.

“They have insinuated to me that they have new evidence,” Stackhouse told Fox News. “I don’t believe there is any new evidence at all.”

The murder charge facing Maj. Matthew Golsteyn comes after years of on-and-off investigations by the Army following an incident said to have taken place during his 2010 deployment. A military tribunal that probed the killing years ago cleared Golsteyn — but the investigation into him was re-opened after he spoke to Fox News’ Bret Baier.

This persecution of an American hero described in the Fox News story is right out of the Obama-era play book!

Golsteyn, in 2010, had been deployed to Afghanistan with the 3rd Special Forces Group. Two Marines in his unit during that time in the Battle of Marja ended up getting killed by booby-trapped explosives hidden in the area.

Golsteyn and his men later found the suspected Taliban bomb maker nearby and after he was detained, Golsteyn said the man refused to talk to investigators.

Golsteyn was concerned that if he released the bomb maker, he would target Afghans who were helping U.S. soldiers.

“There’s limits on how long you can hold guys,” he told Fox News’ Bret Baier in 2016. “You realize quickly that you make things worse. It is an inevitable outcome that people who are cooperating with coalition forces, when identified, will suffer some terrible torture or be killed.”

“Major Matthew Golsteyn’s immediate commander has suddenly determined that sufficient evidence exists to warrant the preferral of charges against him,” U.S. Army Special Operations Command spokesman Lt. Col. Loren Bymer told Fox News in a statement Friday. “Major Golsteyn has been charged with the murder of an Afghan male during his 2010 deployment to Afghanistan.”

The first Army investigation was undertaken after Golsteyn disclosed details of the incident during a polygraph test when he was interviewing for a job with the CIA in 2011.

Golsteyn, according to Army documents obtained by the Washington Post, reportedly told the CIA something that Stackhouse disputes – that he took the suspected bomb maker off base, shot him and buried his remains in a shallow grave before returning to the site to dig up the remains and burn them in a pit used to dispose of trash.

Stackhouse told Fox News the suspected bomb maker was released and later killed during combat operations in Marja.

Golsteyn, who had been awarded the Silver Star, the military’s third-highest award for combat valor, was initially accused of murder and conspiracy. But following the lengthy initial investigation by a military tribunal, no formal charges were filed.

Instead, Golsteyn was removed from the Special Forces and had his Silver Star taken away.

As for the latest case, Stackhouse says: “we will be relentless in defending him.”
Golsteyn told Fox News he killed him. Two years later, he is facing the murder charge.

The previous Lieutenant Lorance gross miscarriage of Justice also occurred under the likes of Commander in Chief Barack Obama!

Clint Lorance was a model soldier for ten years in the U.S. Army. Now he spends his days confined in the United States slammer. His promising career ended on July 2, 2012 when Clint, as a First Lieutenant and newly-appointed Platoon Leader in the U.S. Army, ordered his men to fire on three Afghan men approaching the Platoon’s patrol position. Clint acted solely out of a concern for the safety of his men, but was vilified as a blood-thirsty, trigger-happy soldier.

Based on this inaccurate characterization, Clint was convicted of two counts of unpremeditated murder, one count of attempted murder, and other charges. He is currently serving a 19-year sentence.

Clint’s so called crimes were the result of a fear for the safety of his men in a fast-moving, chaotic wartime situation. Despite his inexperience in leading troops in combat, Army leaders placed Clint in command of a platoon that saw frequent combat in one of the most dangerous regions of Afghanistan. In fact, at the time of his offense, Clint had been in charge for less than 48 hours. Clint’s appointment was not undertaken under positive circumstances. In the months leading up to Clint’s appointment, First Platoon sustained four casualties, including the severe injury of its lieutenant. Despite his inexperience in combat, Army leaders promoted Clint in order to shore up a broken and battered unit.

The first time Clint met his men, the war-weary soldiers of First Platoon had been removed from combat to receive combat stress medical treatment as they mourned the loss of their injured brethren. Seeing first-hand how that loss weighed on each man now under his command, Clint vowed to himself that he would do anything possible to prevent further injury or loss of life.

Clint’s determination was tested on July 2, 2012, just two days into his command of First Platoon. On that day, while leading only his second combat patrol ever, Clint was informed that three men were advancing towards the Platoon’s position on a motorcycle.

Unfortunately for Clint, he stood at the bottom of a 6-foot tall grape berm which blocked all visibility to the access road or motorcycle. A combat-experienced soldier, positioned on top of the berm could see the motorcycle and interpreted it as a hostile threat. With mere seconds to react, Clint gave that soldier permission to fire, but the nervous soldier’s shots missed the target.

Clint’s actions were the result of a young, inexperienced officer enduring the chaos of combat for the first time, but his sentence impermissibly suggests malicious intent. This result is unjust. Excessive punishment undermines the legitimacy of the criminal justice process.

How many brave WWII, Korean, Vietnam, and more recent war Veterans can now be charged with murder? My guess is that a million or more since there is no statute of limitations on murder!

Obama’s rules of engagement gave the enemy a vast advantage during his two terms when Fighter Pilots complained that they could not control their own cockpits and most returned after combat missions with 100% of their bombs and ammunition. Obama placed the lives of the enemy above the lives of our Armed Forces!

We may never know the depths the Obama Administration sunk but this should have All Americans up in arms! An Army officer who received the Medal of Honor from President Barack Obama was spied upon by military investigators after he was mentioned online in an Amazon book review by another soldier who was the subject of an investigation. That’s right, our legion of Intelligence Agencies can’t seem to spy on our enemies and stop even ONE TERRORIST ATTACK but they can spy on President Trump and an American hero!!!!

Will Swenson, who has since returned to active duty after receiving his medal for courageous service in Afghanistan, had his home put under surveillance, and had neighbors and his girlfriend questioned by military investigators, who even went through his trash — all over a response he posted on a review of a book review.

Swenson had been openly critical over the Army’s handling of a battle in which he participated. The Army later conveniently lost his paperwork for his Medal of Honor recommendation. It was resubmitted a second time.

“There’s good reason to suspect that the investigation into Swenson was really about his award, his criticism of the Army, and the hope that agents would find something to shut him up,” a source familiar with the Army investigation said. “All of the details the Army was looking to confirm were all within their reach from the beginning, without speaking to Swenson.”

The Army responded to an inquiry about the Swenson probe on Jan. 15, 2014. John McHugh, secretary of the Army, noted that the book review was what sparked investigators to target the decorated hero, who was honored at the White House in 2009 for his role in a deadly firefight in Afghanistan. How dare an American Citizen use his Freedom of Speech when it exposes the failed leadership of Barack Hussein Obama!

“Mr. Swenson had also been deployed to Afghanistan around the same time period as MAJ Golsteyn, and was potentially in the same area of operations when the alleged offenses under investigation took place,” McHugh wrote.

The Army’s Criminal Investigative Division, or CID, sent agents to question Swenson because he was thanked — along with several other people — in a paragraph-long book review.

The book was “The Wrong War” and it had been reviewed by another soldier previously under investigation, Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, the Green Beret who ultimately was stripped of his Silver Star and tossed from his Special Forces post over unproven allegations of violating rules of engagement I wrote about above.

How many brave WWII, Korean, Vietnam, and more recent war Veterans can now be charged with murder? My guess is that a million or more since there is no statute of limitations on murder!

Obama’s rules of engagement gave the enemy a vast advantage.

If Commander in Chief Trump does not purge the Army of evil forces and America hating Commanders and prosecutors, our military is doomed and American Soldiers will die!

First they came for the Afghanistan Platoon Leaders, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Platoon Leader.

Then they came for the heroic Green Berets, and I did not speak out— because I was not a heroic Green Beret.

Then they came for the Medal of Honor Recipient, and I did not speak out—because I was never awarded the Medal of Honor.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
