LINCOLN GREEN by Sandra Sardeson

(Reprinted without permission from The Journal for Weavers, Spinners,
and Dyers, Vol. 158, April 1991.)

The name and fame of Lincoln Green has lived long after it ceased to
be manufactured, thanks to Robin Hood and his merry men of Sherwood
Forest. 'When they were clothed in Lyncolne grene they kest away their
gray' comes from A LYTELL GESTE OF ROBYN HODE circa 1510. In his
FAIRIE QUEEN Edmund Spenser (circa 1552-99) has the lines 'All in a
woodman's jacket he was clad of Lincolne Greene, belay'd with silver
lace.' Michael Drayton (1563-1631) wrote 'Swains in shepherd's gray
and girls in Lincolne greene.' The latter added a marginal note
'Lincolne anciently dyed the best greene of England' suggesting that
Lincoln Green was very much a thing of the past even by the early
seventeenth century.

The recorded evidence for Lincoln Green production is very sparse and
fragmentary. Sir Francis Hill's classic work MEDIEVAL LINCOLN, which
has recently been reprinted after a gap of twenty-five years (it was
first published in 1948) took twenty years to produce and it contains
what few references are available.

Lincoln scarlet was the most expensive (scarlet signifying the cloth
originally, not the colour). In 1198 the Sheriff of Lincoln bought
ninety ells (about 112 yards) of scarlet cloth for L30 although the
cloth was a finely finished high quality fabric it seems almost
certain that its high price was due mainly to the extremely costly
dye-stuff 'greyne' (graine) from Kermes or scarlet grain, a small
insect resembling that which provides the dye cochineal.

In 1182 the Sheriff of Lincoln bought:
Scarlet at 6s 8d/ell
Green (or fine cloth) at 3s/ell
Blanchet also at 3s/ell
Gray at approximately 1s 8d/ell
(an ell is about equal to a yard.)
(This information is derived from the archives of the Pipe Roll
Society.)

Lincoln green was therefore the middle grade or quality of cloth
produced. It was first dyed blue with woad and then overdyed yellow
with either weld or dyers' greenweed. Woad was grown commercially in
Lincolnshire for hundreds of years, certainly from Elizabethan times,
when its cultivation was encouraged to depress importation. Claxby, in
Lincolnshire, was a centre of cultivation during that time and later
durning the reign of James 1 at Wykeham Grange near Spalding. It was
grown in the Fens as recently as 1938 but after this cultivation was
not continued when Skirbeck Woad Mill ceased production.

In this century the importation of indigo, which produced a better
stronger blue less expensively, contributed to the demise of woad
cultivation although, after 1878 and the invention of artificial
indigo, the crop had become less commercially viable. 'Blanchet' cloth
may have been dyed a pale blue using woad, or this could have been
bleached, although there is little evidence of bleaching at this early
date. This is in contrast to, for instance, gray which was undyed and
intended for everyday use.

Prior to the Middle Ages cloth production was a domestic industry at
the level of that which we would today describe as 'cottage' but after
this time increasingly it became urbanised resulting in greater
yardage production. By 1216 three textile craft guilds were
established in Lincoln - the Weaver', Dyers', and Fullers' guilds.
Collectively these produced the high quality scarlet cloth, Lincoln
green, and Lincoln gray. In 1813, Arthur Young, that prodigious writer
on all agricultural matters, noted that woad was being cultivated for
export to the manufactories of Yorkshire and Lancaster although by
this time the production of Lincoln green had ceased many years
before.

In 1984 to coincide with the important exhibition 'Lincoln comes of
age - 21 hundred years of Lincoln's history' Lincoln scarlet, green
and gray were again produced to resemble the original textiles.

THE NUMBER 7 - GOD'S DIVINE NUMBER

By Michael Hoggard


The number 7 is God's very own number, and is associated with Divine completion and perfection. It becomes apparent to most who read the Scriptures that the number 7 is the most significant number in all of the Scriptures. Therefore, it stands to reason there must be some extremely important patterns that are associated with the number 7. As you read through this article you will understand that the use of the number 7 in the KJV is what sets it apart from the other translations.
The entire Bible is based upon the things that God Almighty has said to His servants, the prophets. They wrote these things down exactly as they had received them. That is why the Bible is such a perfect book. It comes from a perfect God. A common phrase that is found in the Old Testament, "Thus saith the Lord of Hosts", is a phrase that reveals to us that God has indeed given us the very words that have come directly from His mouth. This phrase is found exactly 70 (7 x 10) times in the King James Bible.
The phrase, "his servants the prophets", is found 7 times in the Bible (see 2 Kings 17:23; 21:10; 24:2; Jeremiah. 25:4; Dan. 9:10; Amos 3:7; and Rev. 10:7). Notice that in Amos and Revelation the Lord chose to place it in the 7th verse so that we would know that it has a special meaning. In each case we find that the prophets are the recipients of the Word of God.
The Bible is a book of prophecy. The word "prophecy" is found 21 (7 x 3) times in the Scriptures. The 21st occurrence of this word reveals that we should be very cautious about how we handle the Word of God: "And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book" (Revelation 22:19).
The very first version of the written Word of God was the Ten Commandments. God has placed a very important value on the Ten Commandments, for we find them located in the 70th chapter of the Bible, Exodus 20. The Bible mentions that they were written on "tables of stone". In fact, the Bible mentions 14 (7 x 2) times that they are written on "tables of stone". Also, in the 70th chapter of the New Testament (John 2), you will find the very first miracle that Jesus performed.
It is clear that the words, phrases, verses, chapters, and books of the Bible have been arranged in a perfect order. It would be impossible for men to manipulate a group of documents in this manner, especially men who, in many cases, lived thousands of years apart. How do we know which "Word of God" to use? We are told that Jesus is the Word of God in John 1:1. In 1 John 5:7 He is also given that title: "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." It seems odd that most modern translations omit verse 7, or place a note by it that says this passage does not appear in some Greek texts! This phrase is found exactly 49 times (7 x 7) in the Authorized Version of the Bible!
Jesus and the Bible are forever linked. They are, in reality, the same thing. He is truly the Word of God. The title, "the Word", given to Jesus, is found 7 times in 5 verses, including being found in 1 John 5:7 (also see John 1:1; 1:14; 1 John 1:1; and Rev. 19:13)! Do we yet not believe that the Hand of God was on these men as they compiled and translated this sacred book? Does the Bible you read and trust contain this Divine pattern?
The number 49 (7 x 7) is a tremendous number, for it compounds the idea of completion that we find in the number 7. This equation is found in the text of the Scriptures themselves: "And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years" (Leviticus. 25:8). Since this number is important to God, it is reasonable to assume that His Word and His Son are associated with the number 7.
The Bible itself states that the Word of God is a book of parables. The word "parable" is found 49 times. The word "parable" is found 7 times in the book of Numbers. All of them are found in chapters 23 and 24, and all of them are spoken by Balaam, with the first time being in verse 7. In Psalm 78 we are told that God speaks His Word by means of the parable, and we are also told that all the words of Jesus are in parable form: "All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them" (Matthew 13:34).
God's Word came in many forms and under many titles. One of those titles is the word "message", as in this verse which is the first occurrence of this word: "...And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee..." (Judges 3:20). The word "message" is found 7 times in the Scriptures.
In the Tabernacle there were found various representations of the Godhead. The Ark of the Covenant was a duplicate of the throne that God the Father sat upon. The Table of Shewbread represented the Son, for He is the Bread of Life. There was a menorah in the sanctuary that was the only light to be found inside the Tabernacle itself. This was the figure of the Holy Spirit. John saw this menorah and described it in Revelation. "And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God" (Revelation 4:5).
These 7 spirits are found in Isaiah 11:2, where we read: "And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD." You will find that the phrase "Holy Spirit" is mentioned 7 times in the Authorized Version.
The Holy Spirit is represented elsewhere in the Scriptures as being the "breath" of God. God tells us in Ezekiel 37:6 that He will "put the breath in you, and ye shall live". In Genesis 2:7 God did this with Adam. This is the first place we find the word "breath", and notice that it is in verse 7. The word "breath" is found 42 times. God took the number for man (6) and multiplied it by the number for God (7). (6 x 7= 42).
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God Himself. There is a variation of this in the Scriptures called "the Spirit of Christ". The Spirit of Christ and the spirit of God are the same. There is no difference between them. That is why these two phrases together are found exactly 28 (7 x 4) times in the Scriptures.
In the two listings of the lineage of Jesus Christ, the manifestation 7 is displayed. The account given for us in Matthew, chapter one, lists 42 (6 x 7) generations from Abraham. The account given for us in Luke, chapter three, lists 77 generations from God Who created Adam, the first "son of God", to Jesus, the "true Son of God". Jesus' title of "Son of God", in its various forms is found 49 (7 x 7) times in the New Testament. It is found only one time in the Old Testament, recorded in Daniel 3:25. Check your modern translations for this verse (:25), because the NIV records it merely as, "a son of the gods". There can be no mistaking that this points to Antichrist, not to the real Christ! The Scriptures do attribute a "god" status to fallen angels. The word "gods" is found a total of 244 times in the Scriptures. This is a product which has the number for the world (4) as its factor (4 x 61). These false "gods" are truly earthly, not heavenly!
Our Savior is also given the title, "Son of Man". This phrase is found 196 times in the AV. This number breaks down to 49 (7 x 7) x 4! The last place that this phrase is used is in Revelation 14:14! Incidentally, 14 x 14 = 196!
In John 12:34, the doubters ask Jesus a very simple question: "...who is this Son of man?" It is Jesus Christ. How do I know for sure? It is all in the numbers. The phrase, "Jesus Christ", is found exactly 196 times in the KJV, the exact amount of times that the "Son of Man" is found! Even the place where Jesus was born contains this pattern. In the Scriptures, Bethlehem is mentioned 39 times. The only other form of this name in the Scriptures is Bethlehemjudah, mentioned 10 times. This gives us a total of 49 (7 x 7) times when this special is mentioned. The Scriptures tell us that Zion is the City of David. We find all the mentions of Zion exactly 154 (7 x 22) times in the Old Testament. This includes two occasions where it is spelled Sion. In the New Testament, Sion is mentioned exactly 7 times! When we add the word "Lord" to the name of Jesus Christ, we find that the exact phrase, "Lord Jesus Christ", is found exactly 84 times, which is 7 x 12!
At the beginning of Jesus' ministry on earth, right after His baptism, God revealed to the world that Jesus was His Son. "And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (Matthew. 3:17; see also Matthew. 17:5; Mark 1:11, 9:7; Luke 3:22, 9:35; and 2 Pet. 1:17). It is either by chance or Divine guidance that this title is given to our Savior exactly 7 times in the Scriptures. Jesus is also given the title, "His Son", exactly 7 times in the Scriptures. The unity of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Church, is established exactly 7 times in the KJV by use of the phrase, "are one". This phrase is only found 7 times in the Scriptures and is not associated with any other idea (see John 10:30, 17:22; Romans. 12:5; 1 Corinthians. 3:8, 10:17, 12:12; and First John 5:7).
Comparing this pattern with the NIV, I discovered that in Romans 12:5 - "So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another" - this phrase had been divided up to change the meaning. The phrase in 1 Corinthians 3:8 - "Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one" - is missing and replaced with, "have one purpose", which is not the same as being "one" with someone, especially God. God and Satan have the same purpose, to draw all men in worship to each of them respectively, but this does not make them "one". In 1 Corinthians 10:17 the phrase, "are one bread", is replaced with, "are one body". The phrase is omitted in 1 Corinthians 12:12, and the entire verse of 1 John 5:7 - "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one" - is completely gone.
There is a two-word phrase that is used repeatedly in the Scriptures to describe the total authority and power of Almighty God, and it is the phrase, "most High". Truly, our God is the Most High God. He is given this title exactly 49 times in the Scriptures. Listed are the places this title is either mentioned in the 7th chapter, the 7th verse, or one of its multiples: Genesis 14:18-20, 22; Psalms 7:17, 21:7, 77:10; Isaiah 14:14; Daniel 7:18, 22, 25, 27; Hosea 7:16, 11:7; Mark 5:7; Acts 7:48; and Hebrews 7:1.
In Psalm 16:10 Christ is given the title, "Holy One". It is mentioned in various places that He is the Holy One of Israel. This title is found in the KJV (with the correct capitalization) exactly 49 (7 x 7) times. It is also apparent to those who study the Scriptures that our Savior made various appearances in the Old Testament days in the form of the "Angel of the Lord". This title is mentioned exactly 56 (7 x 8) times in the Old Testament. Another title that the Scriptures give to God is the title, "God of Israel". This title is associated with the number 7, for it is found 203 (7 x 29) times in the Scriptures.
Now, for those of you who are still not convinced, allow me to make the equation a little more difficult. It stands to reason that the more words in sequence that you find in any given pattern, the more improbable it is that this pattern is there by chance, mistake, or human intervention. There is yet another title that is attributed to our great God, and that is the title, "the word of the LORD" (Genesis 15:1). We notice that "the word of the LORD" is used as a personification of God. This could only mean that the expression is used to identify Jesus Himself. The phrase is made up of 5 words. The number 5 is directly associated with Christ. As we have seen, Jesus is given the title "the Word" exactly 7 times in the Scriptures, and is primarily a phrase used in the Old Testament. God wanted the Israelites to know who their Messiah was really supposed to be. It is none other than Jesus Himself, for we find that this phrase ("the Word") is found exactly 245 times in the Old Testament. This breaks down to 49 x 5! But it doesn't stop there. You will find the very commonly used title of God, "LORD of hosts", exactly 245 times in the Old Testament as well. How can this be, other than by the direct hand of God?
Realistically, we do not necessarily need all these number patterns in order to believe the Word of God. However, we do need faith. The Bible teaches us that faith and the "word of God" are inseparable. It is through the "word of God" that we receive the faith that we need to believe the things of God. It is interesting, and yet understandable, to note that the word faith is found 245 (49 x 5) times in the New Testament! It is only found twice in the Old Testament. We are told that faith comes by hearing. I looked up the 17th occurrence of the word hearing in the New Testament, and here is what I discovered: "So then faith (245 - 49 x 5) cometh by hearing (17th occurrence), and hearing by the word of God (49 - 7 x 7)" (Romans 10:17).
In keeping with the theme of Jesus and the number 5, which is the number for grace, we find that "Jesus" and "grace" are mentioned together in the same verse exactly 49 times.
The idea that the Bible and Jesus Christ are one in the same is a principle that is to be accepted by all who claim to believe in the Lord. Jesus claimed that He was going to fulfill all that the Scriptures had written about Him. You will find many instances in the Gospels where Christ fulfilled a portion of the Scriptures, just as "it is written". This is the phrase that Jesus used to defeat Satan during his 40-day fast. The phrase, "it is written", is found exactly 63 (7 x 9) in the New Testament.
The phrase, "thy word", is found 58 times in the Scriptures. This is not a multiple of 7. However, we find that this phrase is found only 7 times in the New Testament! All occurrences apply directly to the Word of God, or Christ Himself (see Luke 1:38, 2:29, 5:5; John 17:6, 14, 17; and Acts 4:29). Notice what our Lord said in John 17:17. He declares that God will "Sanctify" His disciples through the word of truth. As His Word is perfect and complete, so must his sanctification. The word "sanctify" is found exactly 70 times in the King James Bible!
Jesus' disciples asked Him a question about forgiveness of sins: "Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven" (Matthew 18:21-22). So, now we understand that forgiveness of sins is also associated with the number 7.
It was in the garden of Eden that we first learned the difference between "good and evil" because of the sin of Adam. This phrase is mentioned in the Scriptures exactly 7 times. The Bible tells us that sin and corruption go hand in hand. The word "corruption" is found 21 times. The number 21 is not only the product of 3 (resurrection) and 7, but is, according to Ed Vallowe, also the number for the exceeding sinfulness of sin.
The word "forgive" is found 56 (7 x 8) times, the word "forgiven" is found 42 (7 x 6) times, the word "forgiveness" is found 7 times. In fact, all the forms of the word "forgive" can be found 112 (7 x 16) times in the KJV. As an added bonus, we find the word "reconciled" exactly 7 times in the Scriptures.
The way to rid ourselves of our sins is to confess our sins. The word "confessed" is found 7 times. It was Christ Who displayed His grace for us in being wounded for our transgressions (Isaiah 53:5). The word "wounded" is found 35 (7 x 5) times, the number for "perfection" and the number for "grace". The Bible declares that those who are not forgiven of their sins will be "cast off". This phrase is found exactly 14 (7 x 2) times in the Scriptures, including this verse: "Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?" (Psalm 77:7).
It is through prayer that we confess our sins. In the Old Testament you will find the word "pray" a total of 245 (49 x 5) times. The word "prayeth" is found 7 times in the Bible. The 7th time it is found is in 1 Corinthians 14:14 (7th book of the New Testament): "For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful."
When we pray we make supplications to God, asking for His favor on our lives. David, the Psalmist, says it this way: "The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer" (Psalm 6:9). David may not have realized just how perfect his words were when he uttered them. The phrase, "my supplication", is found 7 times in the Scriptures. Once your sins are forgiven, you are found in favor with God, for grace is unmerited favor from God. The word "favour" is found 70 times. It is an attribute given to Christ (Luke 2:52).
Isaiah declares that though our sins are red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18). The word "wool" is found 14 (7 x 2) times. In the Levitical Law, the priests were to consecrate themselves for 7 days. The word "consecrate" is found 14 times in the Bible. The word "consecrated" is also found 14 times.
The word "sanctify" is found 70 times. The first occurrence is in Exodus: "Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine" (Exodus 13:2). The Bible tells us that Jesus was a type and symbol of the "firstborn" (See Matthew 1:25; Colossians 1:18; and Hebrews 12:23). The title, "firstborn", is found exactly 7 times in the New Testament! The first place it is mentioned is in Matthew 1:25. Check the NIV for this verse. His title as the "firstborn son" is omitted.
Since the number 7 deals with perfection and completion, it comes as no surprise that the word "correct" is found 7 times, the 7th time being this passage: "Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished" (Jeremiah 46:28). God says He is going to make an end (7) of the nations of the world (4). This tells us that God's work on earth is going to be "finished". The word "finished" is found 42 (7 x 6) times. This was the word used by Jesus on the cross to mark the completion of the His sacrifice for the world: "It is finished." The word "rested" is found 21 (7 x 3) times, including the Genesis 2:2 reference where it tells us that God "rested" on the 7th day. It also comes as no surprise that the word "perfectly" is found 7 times.
As you study the Bible you will find stories that prefigure the final 7 years of this age. You will see things that are performed or that happen "seven times". This phrase is found 35 (7 x 5) times. When you add the occurrences of the phrase "seven years" with the occurrences of "seven times", they total 77. Also, we find the phrase "seven days" is found 98 (49 x 2; 7 x 7 x 2) times in the Scriptures. In the Old Testament you will find the phrases "seventh day" and "seventh month" a total of 77 times.
As we saw earlier, Jesus' title of "Christ" is found 555 times in the Bible. We also found, according to the lineage of Luke 3, that He is the 77th in line from God the Father. Since the Bible declares that those who follow Christ will be joint heirs with Him (Romans 8:17), it is logical that this lineage has a very special purpose. You will, therefore, find the word "church" in the KJV exactly 77 times! We discovered the phrase, "house of God", is found 84 (7 x 12) times in the Old Testament. When we look at the history books of the Old Testament, Genesis through Esther, we find the phrase, "house of God", 77 times.
Now, let's take this just a little further. Let's look at the 77th chapter of the Bible, Exodus 27. This chapter has 21 (7 x 3) verses in it. In the 21st verse we find this passage: "In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vail, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel." This phrase is a common phrase that refers to the "church" of the Old Testament. This is the 1st occurrence of the name for the "church", This phrase is found 21 (7 x 3) times in the Book of Exodus. It is found exactly 133 (7 x 19) times in the whole Bible!
Focusing on the church and its association with the number 77, we notice that the word "passover(s)" is found exactly 77 times in the King James Bible. We must not assume that there is a correlation between these two until we see what the Scriptures reveal: "Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him..." (Romans 6:6). "...Ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us" (1 Corinthians 5:7). "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me..." (Galatians 2:20). "And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh..." (Galatians 5:24) There is indeed a scriptural connection between the Passover and the church. And we also see how these various patterns can and must be used to gain a better understanding of the Scriptures. Since we do see a relationship between the church and the sacrifice of the Passover, we are not surprised to find that the symbol of our sacrifice, when we were baptized, is also similarly related. You will find all the forms of the word "baptize" exactly 77 times in the Scriptures as well: "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?" (Romans 6:3).
There are other phrases that the Scriptures associate with Christ and His Church. In Exodus 29:5, God calls His people a "peculiar treasure". The word "peculiar" is found 7 times and is always associated with God's special people. John 4:23 speaks of the "true worshippers". "Worshippers" is also found 7 times. Ephesians 2:10 tells that "we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus". The word "workmanship" is found 7 times. The Scriptures proclaim that we as the church are His witnesses, along with a great cloud of witnesses (Hebrews 12:1). The word "witnesses" is found exactly 49 (7 x 7) times in the King James Bible!
In Luke, chapter ten, Jesus sends out a group of witnesses referred to as "the seventy". They are sent out to compel all who would to follow them in salvation and become part of the "kingdom of God". This phrase is referred to 70 times in the Scriptures. This combines the two perfect numbers of 7 for perfection, and 10 for divine authority. Along with this same pattern we find the word "King" (with a capital "K") 70 times in the KJV.
Finally, let's examine the phrase that was placed over the Cross when Christ was crucified. When we look in each of the four Gospels we find a different inscription given. Some would point to this and say that the Bible is inaccurate because of the differences. However, when we view them numerically, we find that each one of them points directly to the perfect order contained in the Scriptures. Listed are these inscriptions:


THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS

THE KING OF THE JEWS

THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS

JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS


There are a total of 28 words in the above inscriptions. This number is a product of 7 for perfection, and 4 for the Gospels. When Pilate was asked to change the words that were written, Pilate responded with a 7-word proclamation: "What I have written I have written" (John 19:22).
There are those who will not believe, even when faced with these amazing facts. There is no way that these numerical patterns could have crept in by chance or human design. They were placed there by an Almighty God; a God Who wanted all of mankind to know His special secrets. These are revealed to us in this most special of all books. You may deny some of my conclusions, but you cannot deny that these patterns exist.
If in the course of my study I had encountered one or two of these patterns, I might not have thought too much about them. But, as you can clearly see, the evidence is overwhelming, and is growing day by day. There has not been a single time when I dedicated myself, my time, and my study to the Lord, relying on His inspiration, that I have not been shown more of His signature in the King James Bible. It is my hope that all who discover these wonderful truths will also come to revere this most special of all books the way I have.

Conspiracy Talk [27 Dec 2004|04:55am]

It has been said that there are three types of people:

1. Those who make things happen. 2. Those who watch things happen, and 3. Those who wonder what happened.

I think im the third of these.

The vast majority of mankind find themselves in the last two categories. Most have "eyes to see" but don't "see" what is happening. Most have "ears that hear" but don't "understand" what IS happening -- LOCALLY, NATIONALLY OR INTERNATIONALLY.



who the fuck are the rothschild's ?

they are one of the most cold blooded families ever to exist.

they own a TEN BILLION DOLLAR CARTEL.

they have a majority stake in most leading newspapers in most first world countries.

they control a majority of major banks worldwide.

they dictate affairs policies and prime ministers and presidents, and have done for centuries.

The Rothschilds had played a major role in the Bavarian Illuminati.

they own the company Charter Oaks, which a subsidary a subsidiary of Rothschild, Inc whom bear the title 'guardian of the Vatican Treasury'

they have affliations with the largest election-management company in the world. Hardware and software services, voting machines, 40,000 elections run in 30 years, globally. Counted 100,000,000 votes in the 2000 US election.

the Bank of England's governer is : Rupert L Pennant-Rea whom has corporate affliations with the economist newspaper, which in turn has up to a 50% stake by the rothschild family. Sir Evelyn De Rothschild is a director of the economist and is chairman of N.M. Rothschild & Sons Ltd.

there are even claims the the rothschild's supported hilter, even more outragous that he infact was one of them. There are links to suggest this, do not be put off by the apparent Jewish faith of the family, its just lipservice.



you'll never guess what family has clear links the leading right and left wing newspapers in the uk?
The rothschild family. (the guardian and telegraph)

'Once you accept that it has always been the dream of some to rule the world, to reach ultimate power, then all you have to think is what you need to have and control in order to do it – especially if you are not a large powerful nation, and you don’t have the cannon fodder, or wish to be yourself. Economic might, not military might, is the key.'


The great poet-philosopher Heinrich Heine (a Banker’s son) said, "Money is the god of our time, and Rothschild is his prophet."

RESEARCH THIS FAMILY, THEY OWN YOU.

I am new...I am Ramses [17 Aug 2004|08:08pm]

My name is Ramses.

I am new here. I am a vegan Libra who loves poetry and learning and music. One of my favorite things to do is to spend my time at the cafe near my apartment where they have live music. I eat edamame there and have fun with the nice people who come in.

A bit more about meCollapse )

I have made many friends in various communities that share my beliefs and have shared a lot of me with those people. I know that I will probably meet some people who will say mean things to me or about me, maybe even in here, but I must assure you I am good and I never harm or insult or intend to upset. I am hoping I will be embraced by big hearts and open minds. I am hoping I will be welcome because I believe in what you believe in: peace and love.

This is me...I'm not much, but I am good and nice and sincere.

Hi,
My name is Adam, I'm a 21 year old student. I'm scraping the bottom and saving every penny in order make two things come true in my life. I currently live roughly 1750 miles away from the woman that I love more than anything in my life. I don't mean to come across desperate or needy, but I will do about anything to be with her and her daugther. I am also trying to raise enough money, going along with that, to pay for art school. She means so much to me and if I could just be able get to where she is, three lives will be forever changed. If you wish not to contribute, I understand fully. But if anyone of you could find compassion within yourselves to donate anything at all, if even mere pennies, it would be greatly appreciated. I will remember everyone who donates and will add their names to a list where I'll later give great gratification to each of you. So, if you would, please click the button below to help me raise appropriate funds and erase a gap between two hearts. Feel free to contact me if you wish. Trunkz188@yahoo.com or archeuphoria
Thank you so much for just taking time to see what I had to say.

Nation-Wide Student Protest - March 19th 2004

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you know about the nation-wide student protest planned for March 19th, 2004, in commemoration of the one year anniversary of the war in Iraq. Please read the call to action, and if you are interested, forward it along to anyone and everyone who might be willing to participate in a demonstration as well. The SDP's website is http://sdp.webhop.net

Thanks!

The protest on the 19th is a *student* protest, not meant to detract from the events of the 20th. It is a show of student solidarity against the War in Iraq and in expression of our discontent with the state of the union. We are encouraging all students who are participate in the events of the 19th to attend protests on the 20th as well.

The idea is to get demonstrations on college campuses where they have thus far been lacking in strength and numbers.

A Call to ActionCollapse )

Hi.
I'm a newbie. Just to let you know, I joined this community because daily I'm pissed off by the kids in my class who are homophobics, as well as the kids who stereotype other kids as stupid, high school stereotypes. My beliefs are that no one person's personality can accurately be wedged into a narrow mold like a stereotype, and that it degrades the value of the person's personality.

If you ever meet me, do smething as little as avoiding saying, "that's retarded" or "that's gay" and it will cheer me up for the day.

Thanks for listening.

By the way, I've seen a lot of John Lennon quotes around here... I'm impressed by the tastes in music you guys have. ^^

Now, my point. My name is Stefanie. I joined a while ago, but didn't post anything yet. I'm reading "All She Wanted" the story of Brandon Teena, and it's a disturbing story. I can't believe a person could be so cruel as to kill another because of their sexual preferences. I have several gay, lesbian, or Bi friends and am straight myself. I couldn't ever imagine my life without them or imagine anyone hurting them. I watched "Anatomy of A Hate Crime" (the Matthew Sheppard story) and was in tears. It's so sad that people can treat others that way.

Taken from my livejournal...

There have been rumors of my Spanish teacher getting fired for leering at girls' chests. Long before we heard that, Jen II and I would always say that he did, since we've both noticed him staring at our own chests. But this rumor hadn't gotten around, I guess. So I said something to Laura, who of course told everybody. I thought she knew. Anyway, there is this one girl in humanities and in Spanish with me. She's Islamic, her name is Lyla. She used to show her hair and her arms and legs, but this year she stopped. She is a total teacher's pet, and it drives us all insane.

So when she heard about the Spanish teacher, she wigged out, "Just because some skanky girl wears a shirt that shows everything and he happens to notice doesn't mean he should get fired!"

(I almost asked her if she thought I was a skank, since he's definitely taken a glimpse. But I was afraid of her answer. Not because I'm a skank, I know I'm not. But I know she hates me.)

..."Um, Lyla. Kelly was the first of many who complained. And everybody knows she is not a skank."

(other people agreed with me, here.)

"Yeah, because she has nothing to be skanky about. But if he was looking at them, it's their fault. They shouldn't give him reason to look. If they have to, they should wear baggy shirts and stuff, then he wouldn't look. It's her fault."

Then she started to say something to Shamus, and turned to me, "Excuse me, I'd prefer it if you didn't listen."

Yeah. Because sorry, I think if a man can't control himself, it's his fault. God forbid she ever gets raped, I wonder if she'll blame herself. She would blame the victim, too.

I was telling my mom about this, and she said that Lyla is just a product of her upbringing. Yeah, sure. But doesn't she have the power to overcome her upbringing? After September 11th, I went out of my way to be nice to this girl because I was sure she was getting hatred for being a Muslim. The Jewish boy in our class, just one, and he doesn't live near our school (my entire lunch table had never even heard of sesame chicken. There are no Jews in that town.), tried to convince me that she was mad anti-Semitic. I didn't take his word for it. I just listened. And when I heard her bashing Israel, and sucking up to teachers that she openly declares her hatred for, I guess I finally let myself dislike her.

Oh, and our teacher is not being fired.

if you're in the toronto area. [06 Jun 2002|05:45pm]

marmelade
Neo-nazis are planning a racist rock concert this weekend in Toronto, with bands like "Angry Aryans" and "Blue Eyed Devils".

Concerts are an chance for racist youth to network and organize. They also pose an immediate threat to the community! In 1993 after a racist rock show in Toronto, three concert goers attacked a Tamil restaurant worker in an alley behind his Bloor Street workplace, beating him into paralysis.

This could be the biggest neo-nazi event in Toronto since 1994. Will we let them get a foothold again?

Saturday June 8 4pm SHARP
MEET AT CAWTHRA SQUARE PARK
Beside the 519 Church Street Community Centre
on Church just north of Wellesley

If you have a vehicle, please consider driving.


BACKGROUND NOTES

1. Angry Aryans are recorded and distributed by Resistance Records, a neo-nazi record label. This label was founded by Toronto's (now reformed) George Burdi, but has since been bought by the National Alliance, an international nazi organization based in West Virginia.

2. The National Alliance was linked to the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma federal building by Timothy McVeigh. National Alliance organizer Robert J. Matthews also lead a gang of fascist terrorists calling themselves The Order. The Order was responsible for the 1984 murder of Jewish journalist Allen Berg, counterfeiting, the bombing of a synagogue & a theater and a string of armored car heists and bank robberies. The National Alliance has recently been holding mass demonstrations in the eastern United States, including one in York Pennsylvania last January where anti-racists and neighborhood youth confronted them and ran them out of town.

3. "Vinland Warriors" have released albums on a number of nazi music labels including Panzerfaust, Thule, and Streetfighting. They are the contact for Blood and Honor Canada an international neo-nazi music network with ties to the violent neo-nazi organization Combat 18 (18 being the numeric code for AH or Adolph Hitler). "Stonehammer" is also involved in Blood and Honor.

4. Combat 18 (C18) originated in England and has spread internationally with their takeover of the Blood and Honor network founded by the infamous English nazi Ian Stuart. C18 have been involved in a 1995 mail bombing campaign which fratricidally targeted C18's enemies on far-right as well as former swimming star Sharron Davies, who has a black husband. Combat 18 have also been tied to loyalist paramilitaries in Northern Ireland that have engaged in terrorism. In 1994 C18 supporter Terry Blackham was arrested trying to deliver sub-machine guns and a rocket launcher to the paramilitary Ulster Defence Association.

5. The band "Stonehammer" is led by Dave Griffin, formerly of another white power band "Aryan". After leaving a 1993 "Aryan" concert in Toronto, three neo-nazis beat a Tamil refugee, Sivarajah Vinasithamby, into paralysis. Mr. Vinasithamby was taking out the garbage behind the restaurant where he worked when he was attacked.

6. Anti-Racist Action (Toronto) formed in 1992 as a reaction to neo-nazi violence on Toronto's streets and white supremacist groups like the Heritage Front making a bid for mainstream credibility. Since then we have disrupted and shut down dozens of neo-nazi concerts, meetings, rallies, and demonstrations. Our basis of unity is "To expose, oppose, and confront racist organizing and the far-right agenda, through education, mass action,and support of broader anti-racist struggles". Thanks to our effortsneo-nazis have not been able to hold public meetings or concerts in Toronto
for almost years.

New Community [26 Apr 2002|09:34pm]

[ mood | giddy ]

I have very reacently created a community called changeyourworld. So far, its a very broad community open to discussion (and hopefully, action) about diversity, peace, acceptence, interracial relationships (not just dating, relationships in general). I guess at this point Im sort of giddy about it all.
I have really high hopes for this community. If it sounds at all interesting to you, please read the welcoming entry i made and the community bio.

I have no doubt that people will join (i just dont know how soon) but i am looking for people who share the same passion as me in seeing it grow. I am looking for people to really help me expand this,which is why I am turning to you creative souls. :) If you feel like you want to be a part of this, contact the email address listed (changeyourwrld@aol.com). I want a website for this, along with anything to promote the "cause" (i hope it will become a cause some day) like flyers, stickers, buttons, literature, trinkets, anything. As you'll find out if you check out the community, i want to eventually turn this into an organization w/the help of some dedicated people. So please, contact me if you have ideas or want to help with anything ive talked about or if you have any idea/experience on how to fundraise if this does become an org.

I apologize for the length but like i said, im giddy

when i read things like this i just start to fume. i dont even want to talk about how i feel on it. just that, i never really think about people's race to begin with. i thought we were all, you know, the same.

i think if i had been talked to like that, i would have punched the guy. not exactly a good way to react but..and some of you wonder why i have no patrioticism?

i want to make a flag of EVERY flag's country and put it up in front of my house to say WE ARE ALL ONE DAMNIT and fuck, why can't people just SEE that?

they are all so high on their horses, everyone thinking they are smarter than the other, everyone thinking they KNOW everything, and not realizing that there is still so much that we don't know and the joke is on us if we humans think that we are the highest species.

if we think that we are the smartest.

color. religion. sexuality. clothes. money.
if we were all blind we wouldn't know what color we were.
if we were poor, we'd know how amazing it was to get a new SHIRT for
christmas. to even KNOW what that is like, to have presents.


if we all closed our eyes and got handed things randomly, new skin, new religions, new beliefs, then maybe we'd see the other side of everything.

every country should be forced to read the sneetches. over and over. until it gets into their heads.

we read the paper
we watched the news
nothing doing nothing
but singing the blues
and we watched as our love
was persecuted
we watched as they said
what we could and couldn't do

we walked in the place
eyes glaring at us
we were the last to care about saving face
we just love who we love
we're not trying to make you gay
we never said a thing about it
we're just trying to find our way
no worries just love

and i looked at her
she was looking at me
and i couldn't help but love her
being in love with me
and i said maybe one day
there wont be any bans on love
maybe one day i can love you
just because

we wont have to care about what they say
and who really was there when the bible was written anyway
and what does it matter as long as the kids are taken care of
what really matter is love

and i looked at her
she was looking at me
and i couldn't help but love her
being in love with me
and i said maybe one day
there wont be any bans on love
maybe one day i can love you
