Dream of a Glimpse of Hell
When I was a kid, I loved watching “horror” films with neighborhood friends. Unfortunately, all that “negative” visual movie scenes produced some nightmares and fear (e.g. I would be afraid of the dark, like going upstairs when the lights were off in the house). However, when I was sick (e.g. flu), I would somehow have these repetitive dreams:
“I was in this “hot, dark, red-lava-like, etc..” place somewhere underground or some cave. I would see these “non-human” shape creatures/figures all around. I would be sweating and scared. “
I would get these same dreams almost every time I was “sick”. It wasn’t just movies too. I had a family background and personal (sinful) lifestyle that had some cultural practices that opened doors to “demonic” strongholds, which I’ll share later. When I became a Christian (e.g. saved, see http://testimony.goodnewseverybody.com/ ) in my early years of college, I would become more knowledgeable about “good” and “evil”. I look back and feel that these dreams were just a “glimpse of hell” after studying the Bible (see What Does the Bible Say About Hell? – OpenBible.info)
I had a dream that I can still remember to this day when I was in college. A friend from church invited me to do a tape recording of his radio show “Living Waters”. This particular show, we were going to do a story of “Hell”. I was to play a guy who goes to “Hell” and was given a script prior to our rehearsals on a Saturday morning. Well, I studied and practiced it the night before. That evening, I would have a dream of a glimpse of “Hell”. I was in my bed and felt my jaw locked together. I tried to physically open it, but I couldn’t. I then woke (in my dream still) -up and saw a demon on the corner of my bed. Remembering from Scripture, I told “it” to go away in “Jesus’ name”. Through this, I was able to open my jaw. I then woke-up from my dream and was sweating. That day, I was able to get ready for rehearsals for this skit as I had this personal experience of “Hell”…(see Deceiver)
I can testify now that I don’t have any nightmares as I’ve learned to practice a more “safer” (Biblical, Christ-like *disclaimer: I’m not perfect) lifestyle from the darkness out in our society. What you feed your mind, you’ll reap. I encourage you to seek God on this particular lifestyle.

Monday, January 11th 2016– I’m no expert in football as I never played an “organized” game. However, I did play pick-up games in school and in my neighborhood growing up. I love playing the sport and watching it too. I’ve been a Vikings fan since I can remember growing-up as I started to get into it through peers (e.g. football cards). I decided to share my personal thoughts as a Minnesota Viking fan of yesterday’s heart breaker game. First of all, they had a great season (11-5) and congratulations on winning the NFC North last weekend by beating our own rivals (Green Bay Packers) at Lambeau Field!
My heart goes to Blair Walsh as I cannot “totally” relate as I’ve never was a kicker or a organized football player. However, as a person that played baseball in high school, I had “many” mistakes. One that has stuck out at times was making a “mistake” as a pinch runner and got caught leading off 3rd base, which was the 3rd out. If I stayed in a safe distance, I could’ve scored a key run in the game against the best team (Cretin Durham Hall) in our conference (St. Paul Conference). Yeah, it was NO big deal as it was just a J.V. game, but it really broke my self-esteem as a sophomore in high school. Anyways, this is my only way I can related to Walsh.
An NFL kicking expert explains what happened on the Blair Walsh miss ftw.usatoday.com
“Blair Walsh missed a short field goal in the closing seconds of the Vikings-Seahawks NFC wild-card game on Sunday, a miss that cost his team the win. Eager to understand what happened, I reached out to my old friend Chuck Zodda, who is a former college kicker and writer for Inside the Pylon.
We talked about whether Walsh kicking the laces made a difference, how the weather affected Walsh, and how he rebounds from this….
I watched the swing a few times right away, and the technique looked clean all the way. The problem that I saw is that the plant foot of Walsh was a little too close to the ball, and because of that, his foot did sort of hook around the ball a little bit. That essentially caused the ankle impact there. From my perspective, the plant foot being a little too close there was probably what did it.
That being said, there are a lot of things that could have happened that would be impossible for you or me to know having not been there. The kick before was almost blocked by Richard Sherman coming around the edge, so maybe Walsh speeds up his mechanics a little bit to try and avoid that. You have icy conditions out there, so maybe it’s a case where he’s just trying to make a solid plant, and he ends up in the wrong place because he’s changing his mechanics just that little bit. All these things could have factored in, but it’s impossible for us to know.
The icy conditions were really the X-factor here. Was Walsh keeping his leg warm? Was that a factor?
The NFL does a lot to keep players warm on the sidelines. You’ve got heated benches. Even on those benches, you’ve got areas where players can click in to keep their feet at least a little bit heated up. But when it’s -4 degrees out, there’s only so much a heated seat and foot warmers can do.
When I was kicking in college, the coldest I ever kicked in was probably 20 or 25 degrees, and even then, it’s like kicking a brick. If you make contact with the laces like that? I wouldn’t be surprised if you look at Walsh’s foot today and saw bruises up and down because of how hard it was. It’s a heavy ball, you don’t have a lot of feeling in your feet, and it’s not an easy situation to kick in…”
Sal: I just played indoor soccer several weeks ago and didn’t have the best shoes. Every time I kicked the ball, it hurt the side of my feet. I just can’t imagine Walsh’s feet after successfully kicking 3 field goals (the only points for the Vikings) in that cold weather yesterday. I’m sure his feet was already in pain and this probably played a factor.

Former Viking Nate Burleson offers heartfelt support for Blair Walsh foxsports.com
“●To @blairwalsh_3 (@blairwalsh3 twitter) I know today seems like a dark day in your athletic career but you will bounce back better & stronger from this brotha. You have kicked game winners before and will make game winners in the future. And not to mention you were a huge part of why the Vikes were in the game with 3 field goals so hold your head high. ●Now to all the so called fans who have taking to social media to put him down, curse out and threaten him & his family please take a long look in the mirror. If ya’ll had your mistakes on grand display for the world to see, would you want thousands of people tearing you down with harsh words & threats. No! We have to be a little bit more sensitive to one another in the moments in which we fail. If we can’t lean eachother to encourage us through the dark times than we are lost as a society. Trust me there is nobody that feels worst than Blair Walsh right now so let’s try to build instead of destroy. “~Nate Burleson

“…it is not shameful, of course. It was human. There no doubt will be plenty of grumbling from football Neanderthals about kickers, from people who expect perfection in kicking but overlook errors by position players. In what was not the finest public moment of his career, coach Mike Zimmer snapped: “The snap was maybe a little high, but it’s a chip shot. He’s got to make it.”…
“I caught it and the laces were straight back,” Locke said. “I don’t know if it was me not feeling comfortable enough to spin it with the slick ball, but I’ve got to at least get the laces out of his eyes.”
Walsh was still wiping away tears as Locke spoke. It was contagious. Eyes welled up all around him. This was pain. It mattered. And it was a reminder that, in an era when cynicism about professional sports has hit new heights, some people still do truly care. Remember that as you relive Blair Walsh’s very public mistake for the next eight month..”
SKOL VIKINGS! Will always be a Viking fan no matter what as long as I live here in Minnesota.

A friend and I had “another” deep philosophical conversation the other night. This time, he actually brought a good question, which I really never took the time to ponder about-“What did Jesus do between the ages of 12 and 30?”-which wasn’t recorded in any of the Gospels?
What Was Jesus Doing Before He Began His Ministry? whataboutjesus.com
“… Aside from the account of Jesus’ birth and infancy, there is only one account in the Bible about his boyhood. That’s the time when the 12 year old Jesus was in the temple courts of Jerusalem amazing his teachers with his knowledge of the Scriptures. You can read about it in Luke 2:41-52. The account ends in an interesting way. God tells us that the boy Jesus did not remain in Jerusalem in the temple. Instead he was obedient to his earthly parents and went back with them to his hometown of Nazareth. There in Nazareth, from age 12 to 30, “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”…”
Where was Jesus between the ages of 12 and 30? by Ryan Turner carm.org
“…The best thing that we can say for now is that it was not the first century Gospel writers purpose to talk about the childhood years of Jesus in much detail, so we really do not have much to say about them. I think that we should focus on what we can know about Jesus rather than what we do not know. For ancient historical records, we have a lot of information about Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. It is there that we should focus since the resurrection is the foundation upon which Christianity is built (1 Corinthians 15:17, cf. John 2:19-21, Matthew 12:39-40).”
Where was Jesus between ages 12 and 30? What was He doing?, from quora.com
“…I think we can surmise from the trajectory his life was taking at age 12 that he continued to be “about his Father’s business” Luke 2:49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”..
What Did Jesus Do Between Age 12 and 30?, hcna.us
“… But a lack of information in scripture has never stopped scholars from theorizing, especially when there is internal evidence, that is, evidence we can deduce from the literature itself, to support a pet theory. So, here are three theories I have encountered in my studies. ..
Then there is theory number three. This notion doesn’t get much support from orthodoxy, but it has a strong band of supporters. These claim that Jesus went to India or elsewhere in the Near East and studied Buddhism. …”

The Missing Years
by Bruce A. Ritter rcg.org
“…Some, relying on human reasoning and theory, have invented stories about these “lost” years. One tells of a young Jesus learning the mystic arts in Egypt. Another tale has Him journeying across the Atlantic Ocean to preach to the American Indians, who some believe to be the “lost ten tribes” of Israel. Yet none of these or other manmade tales are supported by the Bible…”

Tom Nelson: The Hidden Years of Jesus
From age 12 to 30, Jesus spent time in a carpenter shop. What does that mean for us? christianitytoday.com
“From age 12 to 30, Jesus spent time in a carpenter’s shop. What does that mean for us? Tom Nelson highlights the importance of the fact that Jesus spent most of his time on earth working – creating, shaping and fixing with his hands. The magnitude of Jesus’ “hidden years” serves to remind us that work most certainly matters…”
If Jesus started ministry at age 30, what was he doing for 30 years? thisisyourbible.com
“…Mark tells us that Jesus, like Joseph, worked as a carpenter (Mark 6:3). This job was much as it is today, a skilled, but honest and hardworking trade. It would have given Jesus opportunity to meet all kinds of people and travel in Galilee. We know from historical records that when Jesus was in his teens, just starting his trade, the nearby town of Sepphoris underwent a major rebuilding which brought stonemasons and carpenters from all over the Roman empire. As it was less than an hour’s walk to Sepphoris it is almost certain that any young carpenter of Nazareth would also have spent some time working there. Sepphoris was a Greek-speaking town, and Jesus, who probably only spoke Aramaic (a form of Hebrew) at home, would have learned to speak Greek. The rebuilding of Sepphoris would also have provided extra income for his family.”
I’m still doing some research on this topic and this will probably will never end. I would love to welcome any other credible sources out there that might “help” answer this question. Got any personal suggestions, feedback, comments, etc..?

MT. SINAI (JABAL AL-LAWZ or Al LOZ): 28 41 N, 35 18 E
After finding chariot parts in the Gulf of Aquaba, Ron Wyatt wondered if Mount Sinai could be in Saudi Arabia. In Galatians 4:25 the Bible states that Mount Sinai is in Arabia, “For this Agar is Mount Sinai in ARABIA.” The Bible says Mount Sinai is in Midian, and this area has always been known as Midian. Still to this day it is called, “Madyan”. After being denied a visa Ron entered the country without one on foot. He made his way to ‘Jebel el Lawz’, known by the locals as “Jebel Musa” (Moses’ mountain) which his research showed could have fitted the biblical description of Mount Sinai.
Another remarkable find was discovered in the area. A massive split boulder, sixty foot high, forty foot wide, forty foot wide and twenty foot deep, sitting on top of a rocky hill. Is there an account in the Bible that talks of such a rock? “Behold I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.” Exodus 17:6.. Moses had led the people across the desert to Mount Sinai,and they were now complaining because they had no water. It was for this reason that God commanded Moses to strike this rock, that God could manifest His power to perform miracles, and cause water to flow from this rock.
Stay tune for more as this will be an on-going re”search”. Feel free to share more till then..
