The Anthem of Victory
A naturalist is like an obsessive gambler who thinks the odds are in the favor of winning even when they are not. A naturalist is like an obsessive gambler who becomes the more certain of eventually winning after each loss. A naturalist is like a naïve gambler who is betting against the way the dice have already been rigged. A naturalist is like a naïve student who out of pride accepts the challenge of trying to find the last digit of Pi, “challenge accepted!”.
John 3:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man of My purpose from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.
The fundamental conditions of the universe are a merely a byproduct; the eternal minds and souls are the real product. The fundamental conditions of the universe are what we choose; “souls” and “minds” are why we choose it. Knowing what the correct course of action should be versus actually choosing to do it are two different things. It is trivial to give honor to a person who choose to lovingly sacrifice if their soul didn’t actually have to risk consciously experiencing the sensations associated with the loving sacrifice. Since the eternal minds make their choices in part based on the sensations that can be experienced by the eternal “soul”, the “soul” must consciously experience those sensations. After all the choices have been made, the eternal “soul” and eternal mind will become immutable for all eternity.
Many times the choices that our “soul” perceives to be experienced in the present were actually chosen in the past by our mind. For example, a person might think that his or her choice for what to eat for lunch was made when he or she opened his or her lunchbox to eat it, but actually the choice for what he or she will eat for lunch was made when he or she packed the lunch. In the same way our “soul” often experiences a delay from the habits of the mind that were actually chosen over time in the past. By the time the “soul” experiences the consequences of the choices, sometimes it is often too late to change; the choice has already been made. Once we die and our eternal “soul” and eternal mind become immutable, we have already chosen eternal heaven or eternal hell for our “soul”.
But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11 But the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.
Our rights come from the Victor of this temporal war, which fortunately is not an artificial intelligence algorithm nor an unbalanced moronic person. The Victor of this temporal war has already been decided in the past even though there are still pockets of resistance who are unwilling to concede that victory in the present. The terrorists are the losers of this temporal war and their time is running out. In a temporal war there is no “almost winning”. In a temporal war it is all or nothing. The winners get the eternal spoils, and the losers repent or get the eternal punishment.
The Victor of this eternal war is merciful and gracious, but we are at the very end of the age of grace. Since the war has already been won by the Victor, all that remains is a war of attrition to get as many of the loser terrorists to repent before the final eternal punishments are sealed. I think the best way to state the situation is that “it behooves the loser terrorist to repent as quickly as possible”. Many of the loser terrorists are stubbornly determined not to concede and to take as many people to hell with them. The Victor is about to begin the final invasion, but the loser terrorists will first attempt briefly conquering the world, chopping heads off, and getting their jollies in before their time runs out and the final invasion begins. In a temporal war, it is better to lose your head than be marked for destruction because your head can be returned to your but not your forfeited honor, integrity, and allegiance. The Victor must first do a tactical retreat of all his agents and ambassadors before the final invasion begins. It is during this tactical retreat that the loser terrorists will get their final jollies in. But I am getting ahead of myself.
1 Corinthians 9:24
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.
The patient are better than warriors,
and those who rule their temper, better than the conqueror of a city.
Chapter 27: The Anthem of Victory
I saw the Victor seated in his Eternal Throne surrounded by 24 elders. The 24 elders each held a harp and a gold bowl filled with rising smoke. The 24 elders chanted an “Anthem of Victory” in the presence of countless angels surrounding the throne.
“We are the Sons of Seth, the Sons of Adam,
We are Children of The Most High,
And this is our battle cry,
In the Victor of the Eternal Throne we boast: VICTORY!
We are more than conquerors through the Victor,
Our weapons of war are truth and love,
We stand our ground, we persevere to the end,
With Belt of Truth, we conquer all fear,
With Righteous Heart; we conquer evil with love,
With Shield of Faith, we advance!, quenching the Enemy’s darts of distraction,
With Helmet of Salvation, we are immortal,
We attack with the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of the Creator,
With Good News of Peace at the ready, we conquer minds and hearts.
To whom did The Most High say “sit at my right hand till I make your enemies your foot-stool?”
In the Victor of the Eternal Throne we boast: VICTORY!
You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals,
You conquered death, and purchased for us eternal life,
By Your blood, You paid the penalty of sin and death,
You purchased people from every nation, tribe, and tongue,
For You are Lord of Lords and King of Kings, Emanuel,
Fully human, one with the Creator, our true mediator, redeemer, and Victor,
We bow before you Victor; we lay our crowns at your feet,
We will serve you and worship you as Kings and Priests upon the Earth,
Worthy is the Victor who was slain to receive honor, power, riches, and glory: FOREVER! “

In my opinion, no one should write an autobiography without watering it down to be a novel or some other story. It just seems vain to write a book commemorating all the mundane events in your own life that are meaningful to you but inane to others. Not everything is worth recording in exact monotony. A heroic life is often tedious, boring, and full of painful sacrifice and suffering, so a little artistic license can make it legendary, more inspiring, and worth your time to read.
Proverbs 16:33 King James Version (KJV)
33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.
“Fair” is often a word that is irresponsibly used by naturalists to rationalize affirming the dishonest and detrimental feeling of envy or covetousness. Affirming envy or covetousness promotes theft and wrongdoing, which does not make the world any more “fair”. In this world it cannot always be “fair”, if by “fair” you mean “perfect”. However in this world it can be “just”, if by “just” you mean promoting benefit, affirming responsibility, and not stealing from or infringing on the rights of others.
The man gasped in relief and then jubilantly exclaimed “The coin flips were rigged!” The Victor then said “Of course the coin flips were rigged! Neither I nor the Creator play dice. Probabilities are for the ignorant who still haven’t realized that we ensured the game has always been rigged from the beginning. The only thing we didn’t rig were all of your free-willed choices”.
The wicked plots against the righteous
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees his day is coming.
Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy.
Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book or to look into it; 5 and one of the elders said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.”
Matthew 24:25/Mark 13:23
Behold, I have told you in advance.
1 Peter 5:8
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1 Corinthians 1:25-27
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; 27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,
Luke 19:1-10 [Zaccheus Converted]
He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And there was a man called by the name of Zaccheus; he was a chief tax collector and he was rich. 3 Zaccheus was trying to see who Jesus was, and was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way. 5 When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” 6 And he hurried and came down and received Him gladly. 7 When they saw it, they all began to grumble, saying, “He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8 Zaccheus stopped and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, half of my possessions I will give to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will give back four times as much.” 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
