Mankind is obsessed with time. Time to go to work, get off work, cook, eat, go grocery shopping, play, travel, eat out, watch the game, sleep, file taxes and vote for those who determine the taxes to be paid. Time is spent on collecting taxes on everything under the sun, which is never enough, so money is borrowed with interest paid over time until paid back, but the payback time is extended time and time again. What is the definition of endless time? Debt! At some point is time, it will have to be forgiven because at its current global amount – IT CAN NEVER BE REPAID!
People often say, “There isn’t enough time in the day”. Is this because God didn’t make the day long enough, or is it man’s inability to schedule his time effectively? If you have a PC, it can help plan your time, but you have to schedule time to use your computer’s time scheduling application, which I personally don’t waste time doing. [Got enough to learn!]
One can look in the dictionary and find up to 21 various definitions relating to time. I understand time as follows: the continuous measured duration in traversing distance or life. With life, it can be short, long or somewhere in between. With distance, it requires a standard system of measurement and the one we have is seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries or any decreed period called an Epoch. The epochal period of time I’ll be talking about is found in Scripture and based on the astronomical event of the Saturn and Jupiter conjunction – 20 years. It is based on the number of total years Jacob served his Uncle Laban – 20 years. (Genesis 31:41) We’ll call this epochal period – Jacob’s Service Time or JST.
The 20 year JST is a Biblical standard increment of time. JST x 2 = 40 years, which is the duration of time Moses led the Children of Israel in the wilderness. After the flood, the Lord renumbered man’s days to 5 JST’s or 5 x 20 = 120. [There are 5 corners to a pyramid and 5 also represents grace in scripture.] Daniel’s 2300 day/years is 115 JST’s, 1260 days/years and 3.5 times is 63 JST’s, 70 weeks or 490 days/years is 24.5 JST’s, 1290 days/years is 64.5 JST’s and the 1335 days/years is 66.75 JST’s. The 1000 years or 50 JST’s to man is as 1 day to God. 50 is also the number for jubilee and Pentecost. At 66, I would be 3.3 JST old.
There are some pretty cool increments of JST’s in our secular history. Let’s check some out, starting with the most recent:
* 2021 – 1 JST = 2001 > 9/11 attack 11/3 cyber-attack – both years the nation was shaken
* 2020 – 1 JST = 2000 > two contested elections
* 2019 – 1 JST = 1999 > two flip flop impeachments
* 2021 – 2 JST = 1981 > President Ronald Reagan was shot and wounded by John Hinckley Jr.
* 2020 – 2 JST = 1980 > America Elects first actor Ronald Reagan
* 2019 – 2 JST = 1979 > United States establishes full diplomatic relations with China
* 2021 – 3 JST = 1961 > John F. Kennedy takes office
* 2020 – 3 JST = 1960 > Four black college students from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical College in Greensboro, North Carolina stage a sit-in at a segregated Woolworth lunch counter, protesting their denial of service. Russia shoots down U-2 spy plane.
* 2019 – 3 JST = 1959 > Hawaii admitted to Union as 50th State
* 2021 – 4 JST = 1941 > Peril Harbor is attacked by Japan bringing U.S. into World War II
* 2008 – 2 JST = 1968 > two great men, Martin L. King and Bobby Kennedy killed
* 2020 – 8 JST = 1860 > Civil War begins
* 2020 – 20 JST = 1620 > Pilgrims land at Plymouth Rock
Take the JST and see what you come up with for yourself. I was born in 1954 and 1 JST later (1974) I was on the USS Oklahoma City, flagship for Commander Seventh Fleet, and off the coast of Vietnam. It was the last time she fired her 16 inch forward guns in support of the war. The article “The Beginning of the Seventh Epoch 2020 – Kingdom Come” is based on JST cubed, or 20 x 20 x 20 = 800.
Stay strong and have a joyful day. LOLGB+

Report: Iran has uranium stockpile 16x over Obama/Biden nuclear deal limit and won’t let anyone inspect it
Iran’s uranium stockpile is nearly 16 times over the limit set by the Obama-Biden era Iran nuclear deal an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report revealed Monday, according to Reuters.
The Middle Eastern nation reportedly has 3,241 kg of enriched uranium, according to an estimate by IAEA; however, the United Nations watchdog was unable to verify the exact amount due to Iran’s lack of cooperation. The limit set by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, is just 202.8 kg.
Reuters reported that traces of uranium were detected at multiple undeclared locations, noting that the atomic watchdog has not been given access to Iran’s nuclear data since February.
“After many months, Iran has not provided the necessary explanation for the presence of the nuclear material particles at any of the three locations where the Agency has conducted complementary accesses (inspections),” IAEA chief Rafael Grossi said in a report viewed by Reuters.
According to the report, the agency is concerned that communication with Iran has not “yielded the expected results.”
“The lack of progress in clarifying the Agency’s questions concerning the correctness and completeness of Iran’s safeguards declarations seriously affects the ability of the Agency to provide assurance of the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme,” it stated.
Last week, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned against rejoining the Iran nuclear deal.
“Don’t forget — when Pres. Biden reenters the flawed nuclear deal he not only will pave the way for Iran to build its nuclear program,” Pompeo wrote on Twitter. “He’ll also be allowing hundreds of billions of dollars to go to the very mullahs who host & support Al-Qaeda in Tehran.”
“Almost 20 years ago Al-Qaeda killed 3000 people in America. Now the regime that protects it gets American money. #NotAmericaFirst,” he added.
In April, President Joe Biden agreed to ease sanctions against aspects of Iran’s economy, including oil and finance, if the Middle Eastern nation agrees to once again comply with the 2015 nuclear deal, according to a senior official familiar with the matter who spoke with the Associated Press.
Iran has also increased its nuclear activities beyond the limits permitted in the 2015 agreement, far exceeding the 3.67 percent uranium enrichment threshold under the deal, having recently reached 20 percent uranium enrichment. Iran has said it would not stop its 20 percent enrichment until the U.S. first lifts all sanctions.
In May 2018, Trump pulled out of the 2015 deal that afforded Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for limiting its nuclear capabilities. The U.S. subsequently started a “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran, re-imposing expired sanctions and implementing new ones.
