    I like to share something I’ve been going through for 4 years, I’ve been preaching five books, I believe our father in Heaven has led me to preach through dreams it all started around four years ago.
    I found out Paul was a false apostle and at this time I was trying to discover truths in the Bible and of Christianity ,so I was taking books out of Paul and I had a dream I heard five books, I took a couple more books at filiated with ball Paul like Mark,Luke and I heard also the books of Thomas and Philip, at this point i figured either Gods talking to me or its very interesting.
    Started to try to take out the Book of Revelations to my surprise I did ,it mentions Our Savior say he’s the Morning Star which in Isaiah it says Lucifer is the Morning Star, I almost became an atheist because I was researching to get these five books, and I found out there’s a lot of contradictions in the Bible ,I made a Facebook called Ticer Tice ,and it was made because of the five books ,I got Matthew ,John first John the Gospel of Thomas in the Gospel of Philip which I found out later those gospels are disciples and are Christian related and also known as Gnostic texts ,so four years ago I was just your average Christian ,now I basically am a Gnostic Christian ,I found out recently that we’ve been tricked ,the church was made upon conquering and killing off Gnostics and destroying Gnostic texts which they mention Bride Groom, Bridal Chamber, The Light Within, I even found out Mary Magdalene Was the most of disciple and the apostle to the apostles, now I know for you to hear this, you probably think I’m possessed, lying or playing around, but I can assure you I’m not, I don’t ask for nothing on my Facebook, it’s there for free to look at ,something interesting I met Our Father in Heaven, the Angel Gabriel and our Saviour in dreams after Gathering the five books.
    I was even cured of fibromyalgia after wards ,it’s prophesied that the word will be hidden and revealed at the end times which I think we are in now, discover to research that I have already discovered, many people already know Paul is a false apostle, there’s videos about it and you can actually look at Bart Ehrman who actually is agnostic which basically he teaches about all the flaws in the Bible.
    So I encourage you all to take me serious, take some time to look at my page and you decide when you think you’ve came to your conclusion what you believe, all I know is, if it wasn’t for the five books, I probably be a atheist or any other religion right now so you’re actually hearing this from someone that was saved by the five books, I don’t consider myself to be anybody special,and I don’t care to even be acknowledged I just am trying to help everybody I can and by faith I hope I’m doing our father in Heaven will, good luck on your journey guys

      You’ve been indoctrinated 🤪

  • Awakening Blacksheep says:

    God had nothing to do with it,
    It just is what it is , you got lucky …
    Why did your god spare you and thousands of others have died from Covid, did he like this guy more than them ? Is he special and they are not ?

  • A Beautiful Mind says:

    Oh my gosh I hope & pray everyone’s alright!

  • Lena MK says:

    That’s horrible. I pray for all those affected by the tornado. Just horrible.

  • MNM Media says:

    I do not understand why homes and businesses in tornado alley don’t put most of the structures underground and have a floor above ground that is detachable. This type of structure would give a safe place to stay during the tornado and the upper section could be modular and easily replaced.

    • JGD says:

      I don’t get why people choose to live in natural disaster zones.

    • Rusty Maximus says:

      Because they are limited in size and very random in where they hit. Yes, you could build a tornado proof house that would cost a million dollars, or you could build a house out of wood for $200k. With either, you pay insurance for value of home, so your insurance would be on a million dollar house! What a lot of homes that don’t have basements do is build a concrete reinforced safe room that is tornado proof. I lived in Jonesboro for nine years and we had several tornados near us over the years, but none ever hit in town or in our neighborhood. I think it’s been around 50 years since one hit in the city limits. That’s about the life of many structures anyway.

    • Rusty Maximus says:

      I might also add that it is also an earthquake zone, so wood frame houses are more earthquake resistant. If an earthquake hit and all the houses were tornado proof, they may crack up in an earthquake, thus destroying all the houses at the same time.

  • HG SC says:

    People go check out the new gun laws they’re trying to take our guns away behind our backs during this crisis don’t let them

  • Mystical Thoughts From The Cosmic Abyss says:

    I forgot it’s that time of the year…..

  • Kellie Miller says:

    • Siegel Gaming says:

      Yah asteroid size of texas is nearing earth

  • Kellie Miller says:

    Fake News if you think this planetary system is fake news why aren’t you reporting on it. But oh i understand why you can’t , they don’t want the sheep to know this. Any questions

    Gotta be ready for anything now days. Most of America has their head in the sand about this Corona 19 and that’s not gonna end well. America’s on it’s way out.

    • Ryan Pumpkin says:

      I agree. I’m tired of feeling helpless about it. It’s a shame that all of these things that are attacking us are things we can’t attack back against.

  • machete lion jaguar says:

    وَقَوْمَ نُوحٍ لَّمَّا كَذَّبُوا الرُّسُلَ أَغْرَقْنَاهُمْ وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ آيَةً ۖ وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا – 25:37
    And the people of Noah – when they denied the messengers, We drowned them, and We made them for mankind a sign. And We have prepared for the wrongdoers a painful punishment

    • Brenda Breslin says:

      machete lion jaguar The Doctor/a healer is being punished. Really? That’s so disgusting!

  • okthennone says:

    How could Trump let this happen…

    Trump 2020, Trump focus to white house.

  • G M says:

    The earth is really mad about those Fires in Australia started by humans that killed over a billion animals

    • JGD says:

      That’s why it’s killing people in the United States totally makes sense. It’s not like these tornadoes happen every single year in predictably the same areas.

    • G M says:

      @JGD It’s a dark joke, Dimwit about us fcking with the planet. Nature has no mercy when tables are turned and everyone is already dealing with corona virus. Not about Tornadoes killing people specifically in the US because of Austrailia

  • Ace J 6887 says:

    As if they don’t have enough to worry about. 🙏🏼 for all during this time

  • Cris says:

    This is just the beginning.

  • Ultra Xtreme says:

    From bad to worst damm hope the people are okay and for who died RIP

  • Rusty Nail says:

    Coronavirus, tornados, wildfires, and hurricane season is upon us😞. Dear god forgive us from our sins. You did say you’re going to punish us at some point and it is happening right in front of our very eyes. We’re sorry, please forgive us, we thank you, and we love you 🙏

    • Robbie S says:

      Rusty Nail So we knew there was sin. Sorry but God dosen’t help those who don’t help themselves or the others. We were blessed with minds so that we could protect the nature he created, the reason he gave us humans brains for that, and not other creatures. He thought we would protect it in our own way. But we didn’t and probably never will. God left us to live someplace else by leaving his only heritance, this Earth, trusting us that we would take care of it, but we didn’t do it. We betrayed him, now he is silent and silent he shall be.

      Give a toy to a kid, and he will find 100 ways only to destroy it, thinking he’ll get a new one. But we adults forget that once we destroy this toy called Earth for once, there is no scope to replace it. Once you’re done damaging that toy, he’d say ” that was the last toy you’ll ever have and now you destroyed it.” No amount of pleading and begging will bring that toy back. And that toy is Earth. And for some, the game isn’t over yet.

    • Rusty Nail says:

      Robbie S I can definitely agree to that. We humans, one of the most loving, caring, generous living thing in this world, but we’re also the most hateful, careless, and selfish living thing in this world!

  • mrlampcompressor says:

    By the grace of god, LOL

I am glad the C-Virus is killing the world hopefully it kills the entire world for creating this new Babylon that has been built in Canada and America ….. I hope and prey for it .
