New Book Daniel's Secret Uses Biblical Numbers to Reveal Shocking End Times Truths

New Book Daniel's Secret Uses Biblical Numbers to Reveal Shocking End Times Truths
Author JW Farquhar identifies Creation's Holy Trifecta as only pathway to salvation

FORT MILL, S.C., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a dialogue between a doubting Thomas and an inspired Daniel Veritas, Daniel interprets the Bible through the scripture of Genesis I using three authorities of interpretation: the image of God, the likeness of God, and the numbers of God. In this way biblical authority is maintained, because foundational scripture interprets the Bible instead of human speculation.

Never before has such a complete solution to the mysteries of the Bible been placed on the doorstep of humanity with a Genesis I foundational theology that is validated again and again by all the God-breathed numbers in the Bible.

When the Bible is interpreted with biblical authority we see a divine plan where:

a foundational theology perfectly reconciles all scripture to itself,
faith and reason become partners,
science and scripture perfectly support each other,
evolution becomes a non-issue,
Old and New Testaments have an astonishing new harmony,
an amazing numbered pathway for salvation is exposed,
the restoration of the original one-mind church becomes reality.

Daniel's Secret draws its title from the Book of Daniel's sealed prophetic vision of 2300 evenings and mornings that science tells us is exactly 77 moon-months for the 77 Face of God counted exactly 7 evenings and 7 mornings on the Creation's seventh day. Bible numbers expert and author, JW Farquhar, validates this interpretation mathematically with the 77 77 77 natural descending genealogy of the Son of Man in the Gospel of Matthew, the 77 ascending genealogy of the Son of God in the Gospel of Luke that leads back up to God, and then again and again with many more 77 biblical references to Jesus.

Destined for the End Times, Daniel's Secret God of Creation has remained hidden from humans for millennia, despite being completely introduced in the Bible's first six sentences, despite another six-fold introduction in the Creation's six days, and despite being numbered 777 on the Creation's seventh day as the Holy Trifecta, that repeats and repeats in the Bible forever.

The signs for Israel's Messiah are now here on earth, because numbers cannot lie. Sometimes a picture is worth 10,000 words.

Bill Gates Emphasizes Power of Goals and Measurement as Keys to Tackling Extreme Poverty



Bill Gates Emphasizes Power of Goals and Measurement as Keys to Tackling Extreme Poverty

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, visits a health clinic in Lucknow, India that provides prenatal and child health care services.

Fifth annual letter highlights successes from education in the United States to prenatal health care in Ethiopia, outlines vision for improving lives of the poor for the next 15 years

SEATTLE, January 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — In his fifth annual letter, Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, highlights how setting clear goals and accurate measurement are key to improving the lives of poor people around the globe.

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, visits an agricultural facility in Adama, Ethiopia that processes and ships beans and chickpeas to European markets.

“I know, it’s not the sexiest of themes, but the proof of its impact is undeniable,” Gates wrote. “The lives of the poorest have improved more rapidly in the last 15 years than ever before.”

The letter describes remarkable progress from schools in the United States to health care in Ethiopia and makes the case that continued investments in these efforts have made a measurable difference for millions of the world’s poorest people. A core reason was the world’s commitment to setting clear goals and identifying the right measures to drive progress towards those goals.

Bill and Melinda Gates, co-chairs of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, work with students at South High School in Denver, Colorado.

This is particularly true in the case of foreign aid. “Historically, aid was largely discussed in terms of the total amount of money invested. Now that we’re more precisely measuring indicators like child mortality, people are able to see the impact aid has in stark terms—that it’s the difference between putting people on AIDS treatment or letting them die,” Gates states in the letter.

He goes on to emphasize the importance of this, given tight budgets around the world. “Not only do clear goals and measures allow governments to spend their aid money more efficiently, it builds the political will to continue funding aid programs by proving how successful they are. It’s not just about governments giving other governments taxpayer money; it’s about one community helping another raise itself out of poverty.”

Gates emphasizes the importance of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as an example of how the world is capable of achieving really big things when we come around a clear goal and develop the measurements to gauge progress. The MDGs are a set of eight specific goals that are an unprecedented global effort to meet the needs of the world’s poorest by 2015. “While we won’t reach all of the goals, the progress we’ve made toward each is staggering,” said Gates. “The MDG target of reducing extreme poverty by half has been reached ahead of the deadline, as has the goal of halving the proportion of people who lack access to safe drinking water.”

As the world looks ahead, Gates has encouraged others to submit their ideas for how to improve the world for the next generation by sharing their hopes for 2030. He hopes to spur a global conversation about effective development and how the world should best come together to achieve further progress for the world’s poorest people.

The letter outlines other key priorities for the foundation in 2013, including helping to eradicate polio, reducing the number of child deaths, increasing access to contraceptives, and improving education in the United States. Gates also announced the second Gates Vaccine Innovation Award winner, praising the innovative work of Margarida Matsinhe, a field officer for VillageReach, who has been instrumental in overhauling the vaccine logistics system by removing obstacles that prevent children from getting immunized.

No. These Are Not Photographs, They Are Drawings!



22 years old, Italian artist Diego Fazo's drawings will blow your mind. And HE IS SELF TAUGHT!

Don’t tell me you can tell the image below is a drawing and not a high-definition photograph, because I don’t buy it. In fact people were so skeptical this incredible piece of art was drawn by hand that young Diego Fazo had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to lay doubts to rest. And looking at his-mind-blowing masterpiece, can you really blame people for questioning it’s hand-drawn?

Like other talented artists who started their careers on Deviant Art, Diego is a self-taught pencil master whose technique matured with the passing of the years. He started out as a tattoo artist, and developed a passion for creating photo-realistic drawings. Inspired by the works of Japanese artists from the Edo period, like Katsushika Hokusai, he managed to capture people’s imaginations with his precise lines and oriental drawing techniques.

The Don is Back in Grand Style!


THE DON IS BACK

~ By Ingram Osigwe

Such was the case with Don Simon fruit juice when it was relaunched in Lagos on Tuesday, 29th January 2013. The ambiance that pervaded function suite of Sheraton Hotel and Towers, venue of the pre-launch gave emphatic meaning to this. Don Simon disappeared from the Nigerian market 11 years ago. The ban on the importation of foreign fruit juice by President Olusegun Obasanjo administration in 2002 sent Don Simon, alongside other imported fruit juice out of the Nigerian market, but mutual partnership between Ekulo Group of Companies and J.Garcia carrion of Spain have now ensured that Don Simon is produced in Nigeria.

Act V & Red Hot Congratulate "Blood Brother" for Winning the Sundance Festival U.S. Grand Jury Prize and the U.S. Documentary Audience Award

New film shines a light on India's AIDS Orphans through American Rocky Braat

I believe the world will be touched, moved and galvanized to take action and join us in helping as many children as possible survive AIDS. No child should live in an institution. Its up to all of us to focus on keeping parents alive and AIDS treatment is the answer to that," said Leigh Blake, Executive Producer of Blood Brother & President of Act V: The End of AIDS.

"We hope that Blood Brother will be seen by millions of people around the World and inspire them to join the movement to defeat HIV/AIDS. Rocky Braat serves as a role model for a generation who are stepping up and taking action on behalf of the voiceless. Together we can create a world of justice where no one has to suffer and die from AIDS. Thank you Blood Brother for bringing us one step closer to the endgame on AIDS," said John Carlin, Executive Producer of Blood Brother & President of the Red Hot Organization.

Arms Around the Child (http://armsaroundthechild.org/), the sister organization of Act V, is partnering with Blood Brother in response to Rocky Braat's journey to directly help and support Rocky, the children depicted in the film, and the millions of other orphans living with HIV/AIDS in India and Africa.
