    The masterwork of our masterful Founders is the greatest temporal engine of human progress that the world has ever known.

    Something such as ought to be self evident, to everyone.

    Master builders are required. Scary, if not, it should be. The "pause" ( Paul ), in time, transitions through requirements, led by experience. America, Opportunity, Divine Providence, Mankind. A four fold cord. 4, the number of creation. Unity of the faith, unity of the knowledge of God, required, in this forth dispensation. The "dispensation of the fullness of times." many would speak of dispensational truth, but, in Reality there are only four. Four is the manifold position. It is he who works through the individual that makes their face to shine. Who would be of A right mind and speak of the "philosophers stone"? What is it likened to ? and to what degree is it discussed in private. Display the tools and make known to the people of where they come. This should be self evident, if not for the veil. the mystery of 3.

    There is A Holy seed, when adult, puts forth its fruit, and its leaves when cast are for healing. the Holy seed is the substance thereof. " I see men as trees walking." Back to the trees in the garden where king David worshiped. of course he is the apple of the Lords eye. Now speak of the temple of the Lord and where he is found to dwell. this a perpetual sign never to be taken away.

    The second sentence of this quote pretty much sums up the election of Donald Trump.

    It only seems like that last effort because it has been OUR last effort. Maintaining one's Liberty is an active duty. Either write your own narrative or somebody will write one for you.
