Amazing Things    Set 3/10/01        Tribes #5

What is really amazing? We think that we understand a lot, when in truth we understand about 'a drop' of water in all the oceans of the world. The human male sperm in one ejaculate (cuming) are about 100 million. If they could be formed into a single line, it would be about six (6) inches long. That is 100 million of them (sperms) in just 6 inches. Thousands of them can be put on the head of a pin.

When a female egg is fertilized it receives 23 pair of chromosomes from the male. The mother egg always has X-chromosomes. The last pair of chromosomes from the male determines the sex of the child. It is either X or Y. If that particular sperm has X-chromosomes the child is female. 
IF it has Y, the child is male. The Y chromosome is really a unique mystery in the universe. Embryos XX= female. OR XY= male.
It is what makes males. Only males have the Y chromosome.

The female egg is 100,000 times larger than a single sperm. PUT THIS IN PERSPECTIVE.  If a male sperm was one foot long. Then the female EGG would be about 19 miles round. One sperm trying to get into a 19 mile bubble. God is very smart huh? When a female is born she has already within her ovaries all of the eggs that she will mature in her lifetime. Those genetic DNA codes are set. The amazing thing is that the Y chromosome from the male makes it possible to build proteins. As well as sperm. Chromosomes are Microscopic Rods that hold the "Genes." About 3 "Billion" individual building blocks of information are in the genes. Try to imagine all of that blueprint information, "Billions" of pieces in just one 'tiny' sperm, of thousands of sperm on the top of a pin.  I said God is smart huh!

In "each cell" of your body there are about 50,000 to 100,000 genes. Each of your cells has 46 chromosomes, 23 from your Mother and 23 from your Father. Those 46 chromosomes have about 3 Billion base pairs of DNA information; some chromosomes have more genes than others do. 
If you could get the 46 chromosomes in your cells into a line, it would be about 80 Billion miles of wire in your body! 
So I think that God is very smart? You probably know what you are NOT supposed to do. But you are sinning in NOT doing what God has said in a couple of hundred things that you are told to do. Read your Bible.

The male 'Y' can be traced back thousands of years; because it does not have a recombining partner matched as XX, but as XY and is the smallest of the chromosomes. It is always passed as an exact copy from father to son. It does not mix new in each new generation. The minute variations in the male make it possible for God to trace your genes back 100 generation very easy. There is some very slight variation in the male Y gene over thousands of years. Because of sperm being created or made at the speed of about 2 million per hour in the male testis, (balls) there is some very slight chance of change. Moreover, because sperm undergo many more error-prone cell divisions over the course of a man's lifetime (compared with the egg) most human genetic variation is actually "male-driven."

There has been some evolution 'from' the original state of man to our present state. There has been some "degeneration." 
We are not what we could be. Live as we once did. Evolution we see has brought us down.

We read in Genesis 11: 17 that: "And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters. "
(Can you imagine living 430 years and having children.)? "Eber" was the father of the "Hebrew" race. His Y gene is still present.

IF each generation had children when they were 20 years old, then going back 100 times equals 2000 years. The Y chromosome in you males is just like that which was in your ancestor 2000 years ago.
You are only a few hundred times from Adam and his companions.

As simple as it is, your computer can search the World Wide Web in an instant, and find the connections that you want. Even with millions of people on the World Wide Web at the same time passing each other billions of times. Billions of electrical impulses are passing each other in billions of wires and frequencies all at the same time in perfect order. With all that order and intelligence, are you smart enough to believe, what God has said? Can you imagine what it is to learn for 430 years like Eber did after Peleg was born?
We don't even know how old he was when Peleg was born.
Maybe Eber was 100 at that time. Maybe he was 270?

Abraham was 100 when Isaac was born. (Genesis 17:17) And his wife Sarah was 90 years old. Do any of you women there want to have sex with any 100-year-old man? How about any of you readers, who are men, do you want to have sex with any 90-year-old woman?

Do you understand about making babies? If nothing goes in, then nothing comes out. As I said the Y chromosome is really a unique mystery in the universe. Understand that and you will begin to understand God! My question about sex with very old people, I know what your answer was. Because I know what appeals to you. You are not like God yet, you are in the world, and the lusts of the world are in your heart. Some people have asked me about my marrying women 40 years younger than me now. Or 40 years older?

I have asked then if they believe in eternal marriage and sealing.
They answer, and then I ask them what difference it will make if I have wives that are only 220 when I am 260 or 300? Hypocrisy is the key.
People just give 'lip' service to the commandments of God and don't obey. 
In 1886 the President of the LDS Church John Taylor (age 78) married Josephine Roueche (26), he died at her home in Kaysville the following July 25,1887. She was 1 of dozens of wives. Brigham Young had 56 wives. Heber C. Kimball had 43 wives.

If I told you that pigs can fly, will you believe me? Nope! Well I can give you proof that pigs can fly. Just put 10 pounds of black powder in a cannon pipe, then slide a small pig down the pipe and light the powder and watch the pig fly. Force makes pigs fly. And "force" will make women marry old men, because the world is changing soon when bombs drop.

Now that the human genome draft was released in February 2001 the ability to trace the many genetic changes is possible. Those slight variations over time can be corrected and the human species can be corrected from harmful genes. The ethical dilemma now begins as whether the new technology to implant female eggs with the male sperm that carries a genetic deformity is proper. Because it is possible now to correct things, should we continue to promote genetic defects?

We know that there are millions and millions of radio frequencies. Electromagnetic waves of energy abound in the universe. As small as those that spark within your own brain, to those in the atoms and quarks. Atoms are composed of electrons and a nucleus, which are protons and neutrons. Those fundamental particles of neutrons and protons are Quarks. The decaying of Photons (gamma particles) in Nuclear fallout is what does the damage to your living cells in your body. Exposure to fallout will cause short -term sterility in people. Pregnant women are very vulnerable because the "fetus cells" are growing and dividing rapidly. Some genetic damage will occur.

Some babies born after fallout exposure will be deformed. The millions of frequencies that roam the universe all at the same time and in perfect order are divided into radio, infrared, visible light, ultra-violet, X-Ray, and Gamma Rays, and some others that we can't even detect yet.

Jesus said: "And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!" Matthew 24:19

The reason is that those that are with child (pregnant) and those that are nursing babies, (small children) as I have already said are very vulnerable, or easily hurt from "any" fallout exposure because of those "gamma" rays that split the cells apart.

If you were poked through your body with one very small Piano wire, it would hurt like hell but would not kill you. Gamma rays are smaller than piano wire. They are smaller than each of the strands that make dental floss is. But if you have a hundred or a thousand, or 10, 000 pass through your body you are harmed. A large exposure to fallout that puts millions of holes in your cells does cause death to anyone.

The way to be protected is to have shelter that will absorb those "gamma" rays before they get to any living cells in your body. See what protection is needed where you live.

Can you see yet that everything that I tell you relates to trying to help you save your own life? You can't repent, rethink, your future if you are dead. So why would I speak of Male sperm,
Y-chromosome's, Electromagnetic Waves, and Piano wire?

Well for the same reason that Plato spoke of his mentor and old friend Socrates.
At age 70 Socrates was condemned to die for rejecting the Athenian Greek gods. In 399 BC in Athens, Greece, he was forced to drink hemlock and poison himself. His message was that men are not so smart, as to understand why God does what he does and says what he says.
He had condemned Athenian free expression, the illusion of democracy 'because' of its excesses. Just like us today. Where everyone can just do their own things regardless of the commandments.
Socrates was a Danite, of the tribe of Dan. 
As was Plato too. That tribe has produced some of the greatest Judges and Philosophers in history. Read about Dan coming to Argos, 60 miles west of Athens Greece with his 50 Daughters in Tribes #1
CLICK HERE OR SEE THE Index Page the letter "I" and Tribes 1, 2, 3, 4,

He said that:
"To be afraid of death was to consider oneself smart and wise when we are not." No one knows about death, whether it is really the greatest blessing that a man can have; but people dread it as though it were a great evil; and in this ignorance man thinks he knows what he does not. What we do know is that to do wrong, and be against the commandments of God is absolute foolishness."
He said: so why fear death?

Plato tells of the ease with which Socrates faced his death:
"Really, my friends, what a way to behave!" Because of the tears that were shed for him. 
He said to them:
"Calm yourselves and be brave."

Plato tells: "This made us feel ashamed, and we controlled our tears. Socrates walked about, and presently, saying that his legs were heavy, lay down on his back. The coldness was spreading about as far as his waist when Socrates uncovered his face - for he had covered it up.

This, Echecrates, was the end of our comrade, who was, we may fairly say, of all those whom we knew in our time the bravest and also the wisest and most just."
Crito and Phaedo, portray a calm Socrates, faced with death. Divine knowledge of truth; of another world.

Readers can you face death with such calmness. Are there commandments that you can read of that you have ignored?

Are your hands so slimy in sin that you cannot even
grasp the
"iron rod" to read the words of God?
Like Revelation 2: 27 ; and 12:5; and 19:15 tells us about the rod of iron. 1 Nephi 11:25 also. 

You may be as Psalm 2:9 tells: Thou shalt break them with a
"rod of iron;" thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potters vessel."

Phaedo, Socrates said: "So if you see anyone distressed at the prospect of dying, it will be proof enough that he is a lover not of wisdom but of the body and of prestige, one or the other, 
or both."

In The Apology he said: "I shall do this to everyone that I meet, young or old, foreigner or fellow citizen; but especially to you my fellow citizens, inasmuch as you are closer to me in kinship. (He was of the tribe of Dan.) This, I do assure you, is what my God commands;
and it is my belief that no greater good has ever befallen you in this city than my service to my God; for I spend all my time going about trying to persuade you, young and old, to make your first and chief concern not for your bodies or for your possessions, but for the highest welfare of your souls, proclaiming as I go. 
Wealth does not bring goodness,
but goodness brings wealth and every other blessing, both to the individual and the state. "

In his last days in prison, he made commentary on Aesop's Fables. Aesop, had lived 200 years before, and had quoted dozens of fables.
The only one you may remember is the Tortoise and the Rabbit's race to the finish, where the tortoise won because of his persistence.

He implies that the Athenians should be: "ashamed that you give your attention to acquiring as much money as possible, and similarly with reputation and honour, and give no attention or thought to truth and understanding and the perfection of your soul.''

Socrates friends had traveled many miles to be with him all the day, before the evening sunset, upon his death. About 18 were present when he drank the poison the jailer brought him. He quietly lay down to die, as the jailer stressed that to be very active would negate the effects of the poison. And he would have to drink another dose. Just as activity today is needed when a person has overdosed on sleeping pills.

Some might say incorrectly that it is like suicide. A friend asked him:
"Tell me then, Socrates, what are the grounds for saying that
suicide is not legitimate? 
I have heard it described as
wrong before now."

Socrates replied: "However, no doubt you will think it amazing that this should be the one straightforward moral question, and that it should never happen in the case of life and death as it does in other cases
that sometimes and for some people death is better than life; and it probably seems amazing to you that it should be unholy for any to whom death would be an advantage to benefit themselves, but that they should have to await the services of someone else."

"Then take your own case; if one of your possessions (slaves) were to destroy itself without intimation from you that you wanted it to die, wouldn't you be angry with it and punish it, if you had any means of doing so?
So if you look at it in this way I suppose it is not unreasonable to say that we must not put an end to ourselves until God sends some necessary circumstance like the one we are facing now" (my death.)

(Those who commit suicide shall incur the wrath of my God. Who's right it is to take life.)

Soon there will be many millions who shall seek death. There were many that jumped out of hi-rise windows to their death when the stock market crashed in 1929. They were selfish people who were concerned just for themselves. Suicide is a selfish act. Millions will take their own lives when bombs fall because they realize personal comforts and fortunes are gone.
They only want to live for their own pleasure.

Selfish people they are.
God will provide the way for them to die, if he wills them to die. They are trying to cheat God, do it in their own selfish way. When perhaps they do have a real destiny to fulfill here on earth.

Some of our Military will have to face death I am sure. Some will do so out of fear of other things.
Brave people will believe that God holds their fate in his hands, whatever that may be. Gideon faced hundreds of thousands with just 300 men. And he won! We read about it in Judges 6, 7, 8, remember the Gideon Bibles in Hotel Rooms, 
in nightstands.

Judges 6:11 "And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son
Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites.

12 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.

13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.

15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house. (Read other flyers and realize that the USA is Manasseh, scriptural speaking.)

35 And he (Gideon) sent messengers throughout all Manasseh;
who also was gathered after him: and he sent messengers unto
Asher, and unto Zebulun, and unto Naphtali; and they came up to meet them."

all of the tribes, of Israel. Joseph is included. Ephraim and Manasseh are 'sons' of Joseph, the son of Israel

Judges 7:2
"And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me. 
(People are always too proud to give God the credit.)

3 Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead.
And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand. (Only 10, 000 stayed.)

4 And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, 
This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee,
This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go.

5 So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue,
as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself;
likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.

6 And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.
( 300 out of 10, 000 men)

7 And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand:
and let all the other people go every man unto his place.

8 So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets:
and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent,
and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley."

Judges 7:22 "
And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man's sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath.

23 And the men of Israel gathered themselves together out of Naphtali, and out of Asher, and out of all Manasseh, and pursued after the Midianites.

24 And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan."

Judges 8: 4 "And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred (300) men that were with him, faint, yet pursuing them.

5 And he said unto the men of Succoth, Give, I pray you, loaves of bread unto the people that follow me; for they be faint, and I am pursuing after Zebah and Zalmunna, kings of Midian.

10 Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor, and their hosts with them, about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword. (301 men chasing 15, 000 that were left from the Midianite army. So 301 brave men started the battle that slew 120,000 Midianites. Are you brave enough to do that?)

11 And Gideon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah, and smote the host: for the host was secure.

12 And when Zebah and Zalmunna fled, he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and discomfited all the host.

20 And he said unto Jether his firstborn, Up, and slay them. But the youth drew not his sword: for he feared, because he was yet a youth.

21 Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, Rise thou, and fall upon us:
for as the man is, so is his strength.
And Gideon arose, and slew Zebah and Zalmunna, and took away the ornaments that were on their camels' necks.

30 And Gideon had threescore and ten sons of his body begotten: (70) for he had many wives." Judges 8: 30 (Threescore and ten = 70 Sons.  
How many daughters were born? Or do you think he had only Y-chromosomes? 

And no X
-chromosomes to father any daughters.
That really would be Amazing.) Read Judges Chapter 6, 7, 8 again, now that you understand. 

Spend some time slowly reading this whole story.
