worship and intercession as described in Revelation 5:8.

had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down
before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of
incense, which are the prayers of the saints".

scripture represents praise and worship and the "bowl" used represents the

"The fabric of this world is about to be shaken, as kings
are awakened from their slumber and robe themselves with heavenly garments of
eternal destiny. Do
not fear the shaking that is coming upon the world. The unexpected fires which
are about to burst forth will not touch a hair on our head, but only free you
from your chains. You have been held like a prisoner within a world that is not
your own, but remember that you are
only a pilgrim passing through this
small speck of dust as an
ambassador on assignment from Heaven. The kings of this
world are about to be judged, and many leaders will soon fall. After the
fires have settled, only true kings will
remain. The church age began with the apostle, prophet,
and teacher (Ephesians 4:11), but will end with the final two ministry offices
of the king and priest appearing on the scene (Revelation 1:6). The hour of the
seven-fold ministry has now arrived, for the kingdoms of this world are about
to become the kingdoms of our God
and King, and the world stage is now set for the final battle between
darkness and light."- Timothy Snodgrass December 17,

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a new
philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the
falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no
church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to
develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit
of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that
has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex of America and is responsible for the collapse of morals,
the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global
ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does
not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
