Paul Discusses Love

In 1 Corinthians Chapter 13, Paul explained how important love is in a person’s life. He said that even though someone has many gifts, without love they are somewhat useless. You can have marvelous gifts used to help people and bring joy to those who need it, but without love, your works will be useless.

No matter what you do or the hardships you experience, without love, there is no gain. Paul emphasized the importance of love and putting it into practice in everything that we do.

Characteristics of Love

Paul listed the characteristics of love. In verses four to seven, he explains that love is kind and patient. He said that a person with love does not become envious and does not boast about anything. They are also not prideful.

According to 1 Corinthians Chapter 13, someone walking in love does not seek to dishonor anyone and is not only after self-gain. Love is slow to anger and does not rejoice in anything evil. A person who works in love always looks for the truth and keeps no record of wrong. Love causes someone to always protect, have faith, hope and push on.

Love is Superior to All Gifts

Love is the key to everything because where there is love, there cannot be any failure. Paul said that a person cannot use their spiritual gifts without knowing love or what it is to love. Love is superior to all the gifts, because where there is love, prophesies will stop and tongues will be silenced.

Love is above everything and is something that one should learn in order to truly live for Christ and help others around them according to Paul. Out of the three – faith, love and hope – love is the strongest of all.

1 Corinthians 13 (King James Version)

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

    NEW AMERICA AND THE GLOBAL REPUBLIC.____________________________
    By Dennis R. Torii, Jr.

    Freedom is a God given right that shall not be infringed upon by anyone. The natural laws of supply and demand, balanced by the gift of reasoning allows for the fair exchange of energies to occur without destruction of the planet or harm to one another. Many systems of government have been attempted but only one became the beacon of freedom for the world and that is the United States which is now a Frankenstein compared to what its imperfect but enlightened founders intended.

    America and the world will always face its inner struggles with their collective pasts but what is most important is the NOW, because that is all we truly have. If we take this moment to just stop and help one another in an orchestrated, organized and totally free way, then we can turn this hell into a real heaven, not an impossible Utopia that communism seeks, and for which many millions have died.

    It was Progressivism which destroyed America and it was done with the best intentions. Freedom can only be maintained by a republic that has an educated and enlightened society. Wisdom truly is the currency of the future because ignorance has been the currency of the past.
    The following are the plans to save our world:

    New America
    First. Finish the wall and seal the border. Then send the Canadian and American military South of the border down to Panama to prepare them for proper interface with the North.
    Second. Have a Convention of States and dissolve the United States of America. Steps two and three are accomplished simultaneously.
    Third. Re-Form the new United States using the original pre-Progressive Era (pre-1913) U.S. Constitution with Originalist updates and should include all previous territories and will span from Panama to Alaska including Japan and the Caribbean Islands, creating America 2.0.
    This will be the first formed nation of the new order that will be based upon the pre-progressive era (pre-1913) U.S. Constitution and governmental structure with Originalist updates. It will serve as the template for the rest to follow. If we do not take Central America now, Russia and China will. And of course, it will stem the flow of the virus as well.
    America must transform and revert to our original pre-1913 constitution with Originalist updates, Israel must become secular and join the EU which must also adopt our original constitution with Originalist updates. This will allow for Islam to reform and Jerusalem must become the capital of the New Order or what will become known as the Global Republic. If we don’t protect and expand the freedom our Founders created, it will shrink and die.
    The Global Republic
    PLAN I.
    Urgent consideration needs to be given to the merging major Rail Lines with the various airline conglomerates to form Air/Rail companies. The building of global networks of superconductive mag-lev train lines along with state of the art nuclear power plants, from which they will draw their power, will create many urgently needed jobs and provide the world with much needed infra-structure. Mag-lev lines are being built around the world and the technology is now sound enough for all countries to go forward with this project which will serve as the main conduit for the flow of travel, goods, power and data as well.
    Air/Rail companies will benefit from the diversification of their resources and revenues while the country will benefit by having the necessary means of transportation that can now be provided to them. Paid for by The Full Faith and Credit of each respective nation, this plan will instill confidence in the people world as they cope with their own versions of the Global Economic Collapse.
    In regards to nuclear waste, technology has advanced to such a degree that we can now safely consolidate and secure radioactive waste to remove it from the planet. Advances in Nano-technology allow for a super strong tether to space that an elevator can ascend and descend carrying payloads of any type into orbit. After delivering radioactive material into space, the highly reinforced thermal resistant radioactive payload would be directed into the sun using a space based rail-gun that would fire the waste to its final destination. Additionally, state of the art nuclear plants could work in conjunction with coastal de-salinization plants that could produce much needed water and liquid hydrogen to fuel future hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. The tether could be destroyed by ground and space based lasers if it is damaged or becomes unstable in an emergency. Use of Helium-3 will eventually be common.

    Plan II.
    The following is a basic description of a Mega-Structure which would serve as a totally self-contained miniature city the purpose of which is to begin to reverse the negative human impact or “footprint” on the Earth. The reason to reverse the human “footprint” is obvious and does not merit serious discussion. People’s wants and needs are all basically the same, but our collective need for pristine environment within close proximity far outweighs the individual’s desire for land to be chopped up and dotted with the endless sea of urban sprawl that has turned the world into a Frankenstein like planet. Those who would lose land to this necessary terra forming should be compensated fairly.
    The Mega-Structure would be approximately 200 stories tall, built in an hour-glass configuration, much like the cooling tower of a nuclear power plant. It would contain a double-helix super structure with pistons for flexibility and carbon fiber reinforced bricks as the main building medium. It would have a rounded bottom that would rest on a huge crater filled with 10’ diameter steel balls filled with recycled plastic. The design will be resistant to seismic activity and allow for great longevity due to its strength and simple design. The structure would have four cores that back each other up should one to three of them fail. Each would serve as the main conduits for utilities including elevator shafts and would be located in the base of the structure. The lower half of the structure would be solid living and business quarters, in the middle of the structure would be a huge atrium where you could look up and see the sky through the top half of the structure that is lined with terraced balconies. The walls of the structure would have large openings in the center to allow for more light and exposure to the middle atrium. There are no corners in any rooms for strength and aesthetics.
    Each Mega-Structure can be built using prisoners supervised by the Nation’s military. Mega-Structures can have a cultural theme with individual levels representing different time eras for aesthetics and cultural preservation. The Mega-Structures are an obvious deterrent to prevent and mitigate the spread of viruses as well as it can quarantine from outside and in sections if necessary.
    The Mega structures would be surrounded by pristine environments that would be maintained as such, but special communities could exist outside the structure to preserve cultural integrity and tradition. The Mega-Structure could be linked to cities and other Mega-Structures via Mag-Lev and by road. The structure should be made strong enough and in such a manner that when the technology arises to move the structure through gravitational force, its structural integrity will allow for it. In the distant future, the structures may be encapsulated and retrofitted to allow for possible deep space travel to other destinations. The plans for a saucer type craft that comes to a point underneath are described in Ezekiel and match up perfectly like a top that would fit into this megastructure to allow it to be moved gravitationally. The structure could then be moved through time and space theoretically. This is basically what becomes part of a huge spaceship and cannot be built until the world comes together scientifically with their acquired knowledge, particularly where harnessing the force of gravity is concerned. We know that this is possible now.

    Plan III.
    The following plan should be perceived as an expansion of democracy and a further evolvement of the United Nations whose role in global affairs is a vital one although it is structurally ineffective in handling them. Environmental, social and political events dictate the need for a concerted effort in dealing with the matters that affect us in a collective way such as terrorism, poverty, pollution and overpopulation. A platform must be created upon which reasonable minds can reach agreement and create positive change. The vision that I am presenting is one which can only be realized when accepted by all.
    The world should be divided into ten nations that are determined by geography, culture, economy and environment. An example of this progression can be seen in the European Union whose success will require their adopting the original pre-1913 U.S. constitution (with Originalist updates) as their own. When complete, the European Union should include Eastern European countries desiring to join and stretch down south through Greece, Turkey, Lebanon (should it wish), and Israel. The United States should expand south to include Panama, North to include Canada and East to include Japan. A decision by Japan will likely have to be made as to whether the country will join the East or West. I am confident they will choose as I have described. South America would then form another democratic nation similarly. The Middle Eastern Nation should span from Morocco across North Africa, North to Syria, South to Yemen and East to include Pakistan.
    Africa remains intact below the Middle Eastern Nation and should include Madagascar in the formation of an African Democratic Nation. The former Soviet Union, excluding countries going to the European Union, should reunite to form a Northern Asian Nation. India should unite with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to form their Democratic nation. China would expand to include its neighboring Asian countries in order that it may form a Southern Asian Nation that must be a democratic republic as the others for this Federation to succeed. Indonesia with a united Papua also would form a Democratic nation and Australia along with New Zealand, Tasmania and Islands nearby that are not already part of a Democratic republic would form the last republic of the Federation or Global Republic. The North and South Pole would be governed by the Federation of Republics. This will become a Global Republic of ten republic nations.
    Lunar, Martian and other territories which may be possible in the future would similarly be governed by the Federation. Three of the Democratic nations converge on the Middle East, whose geographic, cultural and religious significance would logically place the capital of the Federation in Jerusalem where the Presidents of the ten republics of the Federation would meet physically or through telecommunication. A Unified Constitution, with unified labor and environmental laws along with one World Dollar are also necessary for this plan to succeed. Redistricting within each nation should be guided by cultural, economic and environmental concerns. The sharing of technology without political divides may be attained over time as well as the proper distribution of resources to eliminate poverty and restore the environment. The decoding of DNA will allow for the advancement of medical treatment, preservation of endangered species (through cloning when necessary), security, law enforcement and financial concerns. Currency should never be totally eliminated nor should indigenous peoples be forced to be part of any system they do not wish to accept. Socialism and Communism must be totally banned. Total accountability of all people should never be attempted. This system of government should be regarded as organic in nature, a natural progression insuring the God given Right of Freedom protected by Democratic Republics as interpreted by the Original Pre-Progressive Era (pre-1913) U.S. Constitution with Originalist updates. © 2001
    All nations must accept the original pre-1913 U.S. constitution with Originalist updates as their own.
    Soros plans or mine. Choose wisely, although most of his followers will assuredly fall in line with these plans. I am quite confident about this for a myriad of reasons.
    The nations around the world will collapse financially soon, as well as our own
    No one is going to buy our enormous debt, nor will they be able to. They will be in the same boat.
    Ten “Americas” that can print money for three years to stabilize while they switch to One World Dollar.
    The “Americas” each create 100 year bonds to pay it back over the next century.
    Each nation will own 10 % of the bonds from the remaining nine nations.
    New America and The Global Republic.
    Transparent and free with vaccines we can trust. Check-mate. Unifying plans 100%.
    Armies of the world now know all, and that this is how they will eventually have to be paid when the global financial house of cards collapses. Former DHS fed who loves Left and Right.

    The only way a single payer healthcare system will possibly work is if the U.S merges with Canada and Central America (after the wall is built) using the Convention of States (Article V of the Constitution) to stop all illegal immigration. A single payer system would have to be added to the Constitution. Our current system has been destroyed by Obamacare and orchestrated invasion of illegal aliens. With this version of single payer system, we would have to rely upon the plateaued medical technology and economies of scale with the goal of avoiding death panels for those who are terminal. The basic plan would be like a cake with different frostings or “plans” offered by traditional insurance companies, which have more expensive treatments and options such as stem cell therapy and longevity treatment (evolving sciences). People who are capable will work hard to attain the higher levels. Those who cannot can receive higher level treatment as the system and budget allows. The technology to freeze terminal people will eventually arise in the near future so they can be saved later.
    The Mark of the Beast
    It is my theory that this is when DNA can be scanned easily from people for reasons of commerce, security and for medical reasons. People must be allowed to opt out of this system and physical currency must be maintained forever. This means that if they need to be scannable to live in the Megastructures, that is ok if they can live freely on the outside and opt in later, and then opt out again and being cleared from system totally. A separate secure storage of this data to be able to recognize someone returning will be necessary and must be extremely secure and isolated. There is no perfect system.
