    To God East /West /in between north and south to any Direction You facing the skies with open hands is God is face and God’s throne is holding the skies above us .God sent human messangers to humans,birds to birds angles to angles to every creation god created the same kind of creation like them and witnessing all creation through each other. God sent to humans a human like them back then and today and after today. God have No chlidren but have creations God created ,God is invisible in the eye of all creations and talk to creations through another creation like them . God didn’t only created humans , God created all whom in skies and space and above and over and underneath earth.who believe and work / fixing sisters and brothers they will be in paradies after during this life and after for them what ever they want and there is more from God. remain vergins until God’s order comes to you and you meet the right person so you can Merry him/her . alcohol is sin and Dead Fish for long time with out been cleaned is Sins buy it alive clean then you can keep it in fridge or it right away , don’t eat dead fish or drink alchol and stay clean when praing for god so god will answer its like when you go yo job interview clean shaved clean clothes and and after you get the ob there will be rules when you are working like no phone like drinking like no thoughts but focusing on job or prayer when praying to God . who Reject this message God will reject them and make them lost in this life and after and punish them to show them theres no one can resolve and fix what they will get into but God alone God of Adam /Noah Apraham/ Ismaiel/ Isaac/ Jacob/ Joseph /Moses /David /Soloman / Jesus /Ahmed and alots more Messanger in between that time God sent all messangers.

    God gave no birth to no one, God was not born, God have no wife.

    To people who think our father jesus as god they are wrong and confused by satan yes there is no god but one god of all including jesus

    how: Almghty god talked to people through jesus as god talked before through soloman or david or moses or jacob or isaac or ismael or apraham and through all messangers after or before jesus , with each messanger god sent miracles not for messangers to show off with infront of people no you so confused if your thoughts was like that for example jesus miracles was to proof that hes messanger from god when talk to people and and he was days old to tell them his mom got pergnant by no boday but the word of god and ehen he brought people back to life to tell other people that jesus is the messanger of god.

    if you think jesus was god why he was not able to creat thinks out the will of god whats that mean means jesus made dead come back to life for sort term of time becaue they were already alive before but died by god will and came back by god’s will was giving to jesus so made is different than creat , creat mean was jesus able to creat dinosaurs and make them alive or any different creation other than the creations on earth was he able to creat another or different earth or new star no he was not able to bring fly yes fly back to life why because that was not hos mission his mission was to bring few people back to life to tell others to listen to jesus message from god. people flipped on jesus and supported his killers who made the cross and made people carry this is wrong . those who reject this word i will reject them tomorrow when we all standing for judgmet day..

    I truly believe Trump want to make America great again. His shortcoming is he does not know how to talk, he insult a lot of people Dems can make great speeches, like Obama, charismatic, great speaker, popular, globalizationist, socialist, commies all know how to talk

      Trump wants to make himself great again. He is a pea-brained narcissist with delusions of grandeur. If the Democrats had run anybody other than douchbag Hillary, Trump would still be shouting “Your Fired” on his stupid reality show.

    creator means creating something new or something was not existing before.

    – our father jesus the will of God was giving to mariam and to jesus talked to people and tell them he’s the messanger of God and his mother our mother mariam got pregnant with him wirh one word from God and was too easy on God just said let mariam be pregnant with devout boy named jesus or *isha’ah and she did got pregnant because God created us before and we were noting thats too easy on God to do , all mircales jesus was giving by god and when talked to people he was days old to let them know he’s the devout boy and messanger of God by God’s will his mother got pregnant with him.
    -second mircale was giving to him by god’s will he was able to make the a shape of bird from mud and blow into it that mud becomes alive by God’s will and permission was giving to jesus to show people the miracle was goving to him by God and proof he’s the messanger of god .
    – jesus grow up and became a man jesus was able to make the dead comes back to life by the will and permission of God so the they became alive the told people jesus is the messanger of God ad his word is from God, so making is different than creating , creating is to creating means you creat someting was not exising like a planet or different earth or different human than us and this will is only God’s will only God’s will no one ableto that but God, the best example about word making let think of our father jesus he used bring dead back to life , this dead person was alive and died by God’s will and came back to life by God’s will was giving to jesus the messanger of God as all wills was giving to all other messangers apraham ismael jacob isaac joseph moses and alots more not i didn’t mentioned to you just those to use them as an example and see why God gave them miracle to proof to people that they are messangers from God.

    -remain vergins until marriage.
    -eathing dead fish is sin , we should buy them alive and as soonest they die we clean them and eat them or refrgerating them and eat them later.

    -drinking alcohol is sin.

    God was no born , God gave no birth , God has no wife.

    who reject this word God will reject them tomorrow from the mercy.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c81np3P3MnY&t=70s Glenn Kirshner link. He has a great solution to solve the Postal Service Conspiracy. I believe it can work quickly if we do it now.

    Meeting with Putin coming, the next wave of Trump’s manipulation. The meeting with Putin is going to cover their so-called vaccine for COVID19. The second stage of it is an appeal to the people of America to collude with Putin so we can receive the drug. Simple, even though it hasn’t been tested and probably has no effect. If it does cure COVID then we need to investigate Russia on planting the Virus in China. Of course Putin is going to find a way to say only if Trump is still president will I consider sharing the vaccine with the US. New World Order stuff with Putin posturing as the head.

    Trump accepted collusion from Russia, it doesn’t matter whether it was reciprocated. “Lock her up” became his motto because they broke into DNC not anything she voluntarily provided the hackers. Yet it is reported on more than 1 occassion that Trump uses an unsecure iPhone. Knowing the Russians can expertly listen in on devices especially devices not encrypted by our intelligence agencies that any conversations can be breached. Trump does have this knowledge and has been told this information. My accusation is he is providing information and directives to Putin and Russian Businesses via overheard conversations and how are they using it. The numbers in the stock market are inflated not because of GDP but because of the Federal Reserve taking up the slack for the economy. Now I’m wondering about Russian stock market players. Now the way to prove this is fairly simple. The only businesses doing well are the stock markets. Stocks are even being bought by the Federal Reserve. Have the Russians profited by the rise of the stock especially on significant days of signing executive orders, big pharma policies and other businesses. If that’s the case can the Russians buy up so much stock to influence the influctuations of the market? Can it be proven to any degree this knowledge is used? Last question is do the Russians own a significant amount of stock or have any means to cause the market to crash at a convenient time. This would be one of a few reasons why I see one liar working with another other than the Russians having something on Trump.

    170,00 deaths related to COVID 19. And amusingly there are still people who question the severity of COVID 19. Each to their own. Pleasing that people are taking more of an objective stance in preference to a subjective one and believing everything they read and hear. However, if or when people become ill please STOP placing the blame elsewhere. People themselves need to start taking responsibility for their own actions. Governmental guidelines were out there – ask yourself if you adhered to these or did you simply discard that advice and information.
