Above is the cote of arms I designed for Presco, that was originally Brasekwitz, that means Ambrose, or, Ambrosius ‘Divine Immortal’. I did not know I had a child. I employ the letter L which is LAMED for Learning.  There exist a variation of the Lampstand in the Torah.

I was born October 8, 1946, two minutes after the sun went down. My mother, Rosemary, heard the nurses at the window crying out with joy at seeing another brilliant meteor. They called he to the window, knowing this was a good auspices for her newborn, but she was too spent. When they asked Rosemary what her son would be called, she said “John” She has a vision while she was in labor. She believed I was born on the Day of Atonement. I was born three days after. However, the True Calendar of God needed/needs to be reset, which was the main mission of Jesus.

Due to all te events surrounding my daughter, who was conceived on Christmas Eve, there is no way to avoid associating with Revelations 12 ‘The Woman and the Dragon”.  Let me inform you, that the War of Armageddon is not before us, but after us.

Peace on Earth

Jon the Nazarite

I’ve had it with war—no more chariots in Ephraim,
    no more war horses in Jerusalem,
    no more swords and spears, bows and arrows.
He will offer peace to the nations,
    a peaceful rule worldwide,
    from the four winds to the seven seas.

“When the child was 9 months old, and the situation at home had
become even more threatening, I finally had the courage to move
out.. Shortly thereafter, I moved from Northern CA to Southern CA
and got a divorce. Ten years ago we moved again not letting the ex-
husband know where we are because of the craziness that continued as
long as he was in our lives. Even though I cared about him, I had to
cut our losses and focus of the well-being of my children.”

The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon

12 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

The Draconids are coming! Will this meteor shower produce a storm of observable meteors, or just a minor squall? The Draconid Meteor Show should begin on October 8, 2011 starting at dusk (roughly 19:00 BST) and continue through the evening. Peak activity of this normally minor and quiet shower is estimated to be at 21:00 BST (20:00 UT). There seems to be a wide range of predictions for this year’s shower, but some astronomers believe there could be up to 1,000 meteors per hour, making this a meteor storm!

The Draconids or Giacobinids as they are also known, radiate from a point in the constellation of Draco the Dragon in the Northern hemisphere. In the past, notably in 1933 and 1946, the Draconids turned into a meteor storm with meteor rates of more than one every second!

So, will this year bring us a storm? Astronomers believe so as the predicted path of the Earth through the debris streams of comet 21P/Giacobini-Ziner is favorable for a major storm, similar to what has been seen in previous years. Some reports say NASA is even considering the potential risk of damage to the International Space Station and other satellites due to meteroid impacts.

October’s Draconid meteor shower – sometimes called the Giacobinids – radiates from the fiery mouth of the northern constellation Draco the Dragon. Because the radiant is located so far north on the sky’s dome, this shower favors temperate and far-northern latitudes, such as the U.S., Canada, Europe and northern Asia. In 2014, the peak dates will probably be on the evenings of October 7 and 8, starting at nightfall. Wow! There’s a lunar eclipse on the night of October 7-8 … will you see a Draconid meteor streaking along in the full moon’s glare before the eclipse? Or – especially if you’re in Asia – will you see one while the eclipse is taking place? Follow the links below to learn more about the Draconid meteor shower.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamedh

The twelfth letter of the alef-beis is the lamed. The design of the lamed is two letters merged together1: the vav and the kaf.2 The Kabbalah3 says that the letter lamed is compared to a tower flying in the air.

Gematria

The gematria of lamed is thirty. It states in Ethics of Our Fathers: “When one reaches the age of thirty, he reaches the age of full strength.”4 We find in the Torah that when the Jewish people were in the desert, the Levites who carried the heavy vessels had to be between the ages of thirty to fifty, for these are the mightiest years of man.

What was the underlying purpose of the Jews’ journeying forty years in the desert? On one hand, we know that it was the result of the sin of the Spies. The Spies’ forty-day turn in the Land of Israel evoked G-d’s decree to remain in the desert for forty years.5 But why did they specifically have to wander throughout the desert? Why not stay in one place? Set up camp and stay there for forty years. What was the reason for having to undertake a total of forty-two different journeys in forty years?

The purpose of the Jewish people’s travels in the desert was to transform it into a garden; to bring G-dliness to a desolate place. By carrying with them the Holy Ark—and within it the Torah—each and every one of the Jews’ encampments became not only a spiritual but a literal garden. This became a lesson and guidepost for the Jewish people in all their future exiles. G-d was informing them: Throughout history, you will have to travel. You’ll trek from country to country to country. But wherever you go, you must take the Ark of G-d with you—ushering G-dliness to that area, elevating it and making its inhabitants more refined and spiritual. This is the purpose of a Jew.6

This power to begin transforming the world in earnest begins when we turn thirty. Up until that point we are in training. The Midrash Shmuel7 states that one has the ability to guide and influence others for good at the age of thirty. Until then, he is simply laying his foundation.

We find another interesting gematria in relation to lamed. Both the alef (in the form of the word ulfana) and the lamed (as in lameid) represent G-d as a teacher. What’s the connection between the two letters? The design of the alef is comprised of two yuds and a vav: 10 and 10 and 6=26. The lamed is com­prised of a kaf and a vav: 20 and 6=26. Twenty-six is the gematria of G-d’s name, the Tetragrammaton Yud-Hei-Vav-Hei.

Yet there is a marked difference between the teaching styles of the alef and the lamed. The alef is more theoretical while the lamed is more practical. For example, the alef represents the Written Law of Torah (stories and general concepts) while the lamed focuses on the Oral Law (how to practically apply these concepts in one’s day-to-day behavior).8

In another source, the Rebbe writes9 that the kaf of the lamed represents the human being, which is comprised of a G-dly soul and animal soul, each of which is comprised of ten faculties (equaling twenty). The vav represents G-d dwelling between them. The numerical value of the kaf is twenty. When G-d dwells between them, He adds His Ten Sefiros, or G-dly ener­gies, making thirty, which is lamed.

This is perhaps why the Zohar calls the lamed a tower flying in the air. The vav of the lamed represents G-dliness, spiritual­ity, found high up “in the air.” The vav, which is a chute, draws this G-dliness down from the spiritual realms into the physical world, until it is internalized into the kaf, the human being. This merging of spiritual and physical imbues the lamed with the ability to teach very lofty concepts in a practical way.

Meaning

Lamed means to learn and to teach—found in the daily prayers with the phrase lilmod u’lameid.10 But the word lamed, the com­mandment to teach, is not directed merely toward school­teachers, it is adirectivefor every individual. Every person can influence his or her friend or student, and every parent has the obligation to teach his or her children the knowledge of G-d, good deeds and ethics. The Torah tells us11 that “You shall teach your children and talk to them about these things” (i.e., the Torah’s commandments and responsibilities). The Rambam informs us that this passage is the premise for the mitzvah of talmud Torah, Torah study; that through the commandment to teach our children, we know of our own obligation to study the Torah. For how can we teach our children the Torah if we haven’t learned it ourselves?

We can all ask a simple question: Why do we have to learn about this most essential commandment indirectly? If G-d wanted to tell us that we are obligated to learn Torah, why didn’t He just say, “Learn Torah!” Why do we have to learn about this mitzvah by way of the commandment “Teach your children”?

The Rebbe12 explains that when it comes to studying Torah, a person is always a child, and thus the commandment to “teach your children” can also apply to us. One should never say, “Oh, I’m fifty now. I’ve read through the Torah more than twenty times. You can’t teach me anything new.” On the contrary, Torah is infinite. No matter how many times we’ve set foot in it, we can always discover a new insight or uncover deeper meaning. We must approach it like children, and be ready to receive and listen. As it states in Ethics of Our Fathers:13 “Who is wise? One who learns from everyone.” “Everyone” can mean even someone who’s younger than you.

A Humble King Riding a Donkey

9-10 “Shout and cheer, Daughter Zion!
    Raise the roof, Daughter Jerusalem!
Your king is coming!
    a good king who makes all things right,
    a humble king riding a donkey,
    a mere colt of a donkey.
I’ve had it with war—no more chariots in Ephraim,
    no more war horses in Jerusalem,
    no more swords and spears, bows and arrows.
He will offer peace to the nations,
    a peaceful rule worldwide,
    from the four winds to the seven seas.

11-13 “And you, because of my blood covenant with you,
    I’ll release your prisoners from their hopeless cells.
Come home, hope-filled prisoners!
    This very day I’m declaring a double bonus—
    everything you lost returned twice-over!
Judah is now my weapon, the bow I’ll pull,
    setting Ephraim as an arrow to the string.
I’ll wake up your sons, O Zion,
    to counter your sons, O Greece.
From now on
    people are my swords.”

14-17 Then God will come into view,
    his arrows flashing like lightning!
Master God will blast his trumpet
    and set out in a whirlwind.
God-of-the-Angel-Armies will protect them—
    all-out war,
The war to end all wars,
    no holds barred.
Their God will save the day. He’ll rescue them.
    They’ll become like sheep, gentle and soft,
Or like gemstones in a crown,
    catching all the colors of the sun.
Then how they’ll shine! shimmer! glow!
    the young men robust, the young women lovely!

Zechariah 5 The Message (MSG)

Sixth Vision: The Flying Book

5 I looked up again and saw—surprise!—a book on the wing! A book flying!

2 The Messenger-Angel said to me, “What do you see now?”

I said, “I see a book flying, a huge book—thirty feet long and fifteen wide!”

3-4 He told me, “This book is the verdict going out worldwide against thieves and liars. The first half of the book disposes of everyone who steals; the second half takes care of everyone who lies. I launched it”—Decree of God-of-the-Angel-Armies—“and so it will fly into the house of every thief and every liar. It will land in each house and tear it down, timbers and stones.”

Seventh Vision: A Woman in a Basket

5 The Messenger-Angel appeared and said, “Look up. Tell me what you see.”

6 I said, “What in the world is that?”

He said, “This is a bushel basket on a journey. It holds the sin of everyone, everywhere.”

7 Then the lid made of lead was removed from the basket—and there was a woman sitting in it!

8 He said, “This is Miss Wicked.” He pushed her back down into the basket and clamped the lead lid over her.

9 Then I looked up and to my surprise saw two women flying. On outstretched wings they airlifted the bushel basket into the sky.

10 I said to the Messenger-Angel, “Where are they taking the bushel basket?”

11 He said, “East to the land of Shinar. They will build a garage to house it. When it’s finished, the basket will be stored there.”

The Gold Lampstand and the Two Olive Trees

4 Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. 2 He asked me, “What do you see?”

I answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”

4 I asked the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”

5 He answered, “Do you not know what these are?”

“No, my lord,” I replied.

6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.

7 “What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’”

8 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you.

10 “Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone[a] in the hand of Zerubbabel?”

11 Then I asked the angel, “What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?”

12 Again I asked him, “What are these two olive branches beside the two gold pipes that pour out golden oil?”

13 He replied, “Do you not know what these are?”

“No, my lord,” I said.

14 So he said, “These are the two who are anointed to[b] serve the Lord of all the earth.”

Merlin is a legendary figure best known as the wizard featured in Arthurian legend. The standard depiction of the character first appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth‘s Historia Regum Britanniae, written c. 1136, and is based on an amalgamation of previous historical and legendary figures. Geoffrey combined existing stories of Myrddin Wyllt (Merlinus Caledonensis), a North Brythonic prophet and madman with no connection to King Arthur, with tales of the Romano-British war leader Ambrosius Aurelianus to form the composite figure he called Merlin Ambrosius (Welsh: Myrddin Emrys). He is allegedly buried in the Broceliande forest, near Paimpont in Brittany.

  1. Reblogged this on Rosamond Press and commented:

    I asked Patrice Hanson and her young sons to leave my home when she considered going back to he abusive husand. She did not let mew know I was a father until seventeen years later. ““When the child was 9 months old, and the situation at home had
    become even more threatening, I finally had the courage to move
    out.. Shortly thereafter, I moved from Northern CA to Southern CA
    and got a divorce. Ten years ago we moved again not letting the ex-
