The Comet Called Ison
Man I hope it doesn't break apart and dissolve. As you know I live in Brooklyn all we got here every morning is just clouds. Tomorrow's my last chance to see it. That is unless it doesn't burn up!
It won't be going behind the sun from our point of view. But it'll be so close to the sun we won't be able to see it, because of the daylight.
I want to see a comment! I remember going upstate a few years ago for the Perseus meteorite shower
Man what a show that was! Once in a lifetime!

The Seg, concerning the comet, they just showed on the news that it is possible to see it with binoculars on the east side of heaven, and that it will pass behind the Sun if it makes it through, on Thanksgiving Day. Just the lastest news I heard this morning.

There are a lot of people who are confused. There a person here on CN.

If you mean Jerry, I believe he is just a young boy/girl.... consumed with mother-ships, monsters etc. He just isn't scripturally mature enough to play with the older kids yet.
Keep on Keeping on Seq.

There are a lot of people who are confused. There a person here on CN.
That believe, I am, //consumed with outer space, aliens, WHO built the pyramids, some comet or something in the news.// She is right only about the "TWINKIES"
The part that get me most is (//some comet or something in the news//) very informed person, here!
The comet is visible from naked eye now for better visibility, use binoculars.
In the constellation Virgo, you need to gaze eastward starting around 4 A.M.

The guy with the three days-of-darkness is, also nut!
---TheSeg on 11/13/13|
All I have heard about this is there's a guy on you tube that is saying there will be 3 days of darkness before the comet Ison on November 28th this year and that it's the "sign" of the son of man. I think it's a bunch of "Hot air" stupid to set a date when the bible clearly says no one knows the day

The Seg, I tried the email address you gave and could not get through. Why don't you leave me a message here on Christianet Mark V 9959. Then I will give you my email address if you want. peace I leave you.
---Mark_V. on 11/7/13|
Mark, please email me, at TheSeg at hotmail.
125 words is not enough, I'll sent you my phone number.
Put Bible in the subject, so it doesn't go to the junk.
We can talk forever!

The Seg, it was not clear. Who are the sons of God in (V. 19), are you saying they are those born of the Spirit? I believe he used the sons of God, because he was talking about those chosen before the foundation of the world, the elect. Is that what you are saying?
And the children of God are those who have already been saved by the Spirit. Is that what you are saying?
The reason I mentioned the sons of God, is because I read where you mentioned that all were sons of God at one time. Can you explain that?
---Mark_V. on 11/5/13|
Who are the sons of God in (v.19)?
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
and why use (the children of God) in (v.21)?
That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
(For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth,)!
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
I love this, 1Co 12:14-26!
I hope it's clear.
---TheSeg on 11/4/13|
The Seg, interpreting Scriptures take time and study. When I first read (Rom. 8:18-21) I noticed that the writer of Romans used two different names and I first had to figure out what they meant. In (V. 19) it mentions,
"For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God" Then in (v.21) He writes,
"Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God" So I ask myself are they the same people talked about? And why did he use two different ways to write what he did? So I ask you,
Who are the sons of God in (v. 19)? and why use (the children of God) in (v.21)? I wait for your answer.
---Mark_V. on 11/4/13|
Yes Mark, I also believe they (were) the sons of God.
In the beginning everybody was a son.
But (nobody's) perfect, I mean nobody! We have to understand that, first!
So in Gen_6:2
That the (sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair,) and they took them wives of all which they chose.
(Just like little boys in a candy store! Women are beautiful!)
But in Gen_1:11 God said, (fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth): and it was so.
(So, they left their first abode changing it, with their faults!)
Forget me! But, I've heard so many say "if we had been in the day of our father's"
That's just my point!
---TheSeg on 11/2/13|
The Seg, you spoke about how you believed that the sons of God created the stones and then left. That is why I mentioned the sons of God and much mystery behind it. We are told very little about them, what they were. There is at least three theories. I myself believe they were angels. but I could change my mind on that matter if some evidence in Scripture would convict me differently.
If we believed in fate, chance or luck, then we could conclude that the chances of another planet out there with life is very possible, considering the millions of planets out there. But that is not Truth, it is only a chance. Believers do not believe in fate, chance or luck.
---Mark_V. on 11/2/13|
The Seg, you remind me of my brother who passed away 3 years ago. He was a great guy, had a photographic memory. Also could speed read. He read hundreds of books about everything. The brain, knew every part of the brain, medicine, pyramids, Bermuda Triangle and so much more. He had knowledge of so many things even the Bible. One day I went to his house, and he had build a small pyramid out of cupboard. What he did was put a string of thread on his finger, and a washer in the end. floated his hand above the pyramid and when he got close to the point, the washer moved away from the pyramid. It was awesome. He then told me that during war world II planes that flew over the pyramids had trouble with their compasses.
---Mark_V. on 11/1/13|
Mark, I just have to ask you. Why are you convinces it was angels and not devils? And are you talking about just the Great Pyramid of Giza or all of it everything built?
I can foresee a day when a UFO will land on the earth opened the doors and say:
We be your Gods, we were the ones who form you out of the dust of the ground. Even going so far as to prove it! God, half the earth already believes it. And they haven't even seen one. God help us!
Reminds me of that twilight zone episode "how to serve man"
Or Jose Jimenez! Should chicken be eaten with the fingers?
No, the fingers should be eaten separately. Ha ha!
---TheSeg on 10/31/13|
Yes Mark, as you know a circle has 360 degrees, every degree is subdivided into 60 minutes.
The pyramids north face is three minutes off true North! (I wrote 3/360, no! its 3/60.)
You said my opinion is just like everyone else. No Mark!
I was a cabinet-maker high-end. To me a 1/64 of an inch is significant.
So when you talk about things in 1/1000, its extremely significant.
But what I said is that (these things should not be!), yet there they are!
I look at the world around me and I see the complexity of it.
I want you also to know, if God in his infinite wisdom chose to leave those things there for us to see.
We should note them!
---TheSeg on 10/31/13|
The Seg, you gave other calculations but I was talking about the center to the North Pole. Were you saying the same thing?
Second, you do have an opinion on the stones, just like everyone else. What is more magnificent then what God Created? The Oceans, the beautiful mountains around the world, the beautiful stars at night. Some stones cut by man, is not all that great.
The sons of God, that is a very difficult story to understand. I am convince they were angels.
There is many questions we would like have answered, because so many things we are not told. One day maybe we will know, or maybe one day we will not be curious to know.
---Mark_V. on 10/31/13|
Guys I know the pyramids are amazing, truly amazing! I know it doesn't make much of a difference. But the pyramids are not 5 degree off center. They are three minutes of one degree off center, that's 3/360 of a one degree!
How were they built check out, Jean-Pierre Houdin. Really, the best answer!
Only the great pyramid of Giza amazes me, because of its symmetry!
But the pyramids are child's play compared to some of the other stuff on earth!
Like two places called, Puma Punku and Tiahuanaco. The stonework here is indescribable! There are things here that really should not be. Okay please don't jump on me! I really believe these things were made by the sons of God which left heaven.
---TheSeg on 10/30/13|
I have always wondered how the pyramids were built. contractors today can't figure it out today either. the pyramids come with stones layed perfectly. how did the builders get to the top of a pyramid?
---shira4368 on 10/30/13|
The Seg, we know there is many things not explained to us by God. Like who made those giant stones, I like to hear about them because they are amazing and so big, and cut so precise, and also why the pyramids all over the world have the center of each one is facing about 5 degrees to the North Pole, and all those things people see they call UFO's. We can all speculate, but none of it can be proven with the Truth. Now if one of those UFO's landed, and everyone saw what it was, and aliens came out, it would stop being a UFO, then we would have proof. But what God wanted us to know, He spoke of it in His Word. Man is always curious.
---Mark_V. on 10/30/13|
Ancient Aliens?? Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene??
The discovery channel?? Documentary films on discovery??
Please, this is a comet, a big rock like thing!
I do believe there were "giants in those days", which did things we can't today.
How do you move a block of stone that weighs 1100 tons?
How do you polish stone to a mirror like finish, to within 1/1000 of an inch?
You guys well as me know that people would rather believe in foolishness, than believe those things that are true.
Case in point STS-48 everyone sees a UFO making a 90 turn, right!
I don't, I see a bunch of pieces of ice all changing direction. (Lower right!)
Because the shuttle changed its position, that's all.
---TheSeg on 10/30/13|
Ive watched so called documentary films on discovery. they take the truth and twist is to fit what they want to. they even said Jesus was married to mary Magdalene. the bible never never even suggest that.
---shira4368 on 10/29/13|
The Seg, I watched the discovery channel about Ancient Aliens, and how they were involve in with the creation of man. They used the Bible stories as their references. They were oppose to evolution. They pick stories from Scripture to proof their points. From God who is Spirit being an alien, since He is not of this earth, and Head of all the Angels who are also aliens. How many other aliens rebelled against God who was their leader. Just about every story they found something to compare with. Even the chariot of fire mentioned in (2 Kings 2:11) as an aircraft. People think of everything and make up some great stories. Man is not happy with the story itself, they want to know what is never mentioned. Fallen man is always very curious.
---Mark_V. on 10/29/13|
Seg, Yes, I likewise have a big problem with leftists calling the natural climate changes we are experiencing "man-made global warming". They blame any change in the climate on human industry, even though they are the same folks who say climate change has been occurring before the existence of man kind. Not only do they claim climate change has occurred for millions of years, but even more extremely than we have ever seen, from the ice-age to extreme hot temperatures that wiped out dinosaurs. Yet, somehow, the very mild climate change we MAY be experiencing now is the fault of human industry! My first post in this thread was a sarcastic parody of the rhetoric we hear from leftist environmentalists and Darwinian evolutionists.
---Jed on 10/27/13|
Then Jed, if the (natural climate change) are (called "man-made")
You have no problem with this, right!
See! I do, that all.
Mark_V, ISON has a nearly parabolic orbit, which suggests that it (could have) originated in the Oort Cloud. We know nothing about the Oort cloud to begin with.
But unless its starts burning again we dont know it composition!
The water/ice line is right before mars, its still three mile wide and hubble confirms comet Ison is holding together.
But, dont worry people!
I have an All Star Pro Elite Series CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt!

StrongAxe, make mine ham and swiss on rye with a little mustard, thanks.
---TheSeg on 10/27/13|
Seg, if the natural climate change we are experiencing now which has been occuring since before man existed is called "man-made", then it only stands to reason that all other climate change, regardless of its cause, should also be called "man-made" as well.
---Jed on 10/26/13|
The Seg, the way I understand the information about Ison is that it will pass within 750,000 miles of the Sun on November 28, 2013, It is made up of Ice, and it is believe it is not big enough to survive the heat of the Sun. It could melt and then boil away. If Ison does survive the heat of the Sun, it will have a fantastic tail that will be visible with the naked eye in January. So I do not think this is any threat to earth whatsoever. If it was a threat to us, you would be hearing a lot about the comet and preachers would be again preaching the end of times. But no one is.

This had caught my attention until I realized there was more after that. I really should avoid reading these blogs just before lunch!

I could be mistaken, but I believe Jed is showing us some humorous sarcasm
No, I don't think you're mistaken, of that I have no doubt!
Mind you now, with everything he said the only thing I objected to is, man-made!
And you don't see a bit of humor in this?
By the way, I think Ison will prove to be a once-in-a-lifetime event.
---TheSeg on 10/26/13|
Seg: I could be mistaken, but I believe Jed is showing us some humorous sarcasm, with jabs toward the global warming, evolution preachers.
But, there is a lot of man-made junk orbiting the Earth right now, satellites, leftover lunar modules, etc. Plus, we have the International Space Station.
---Grandma on 10/25/13|
Jed, don't be so dumb!
How can it be man-made, if it's from outer space?
---TheSeg on 10/25/13|
The comet will most likely strike Earth causing extreme man-made global warming and wiping out all human life. Then after a few million years a single-celled piece of goop will sprout legs and come crawling out of the ocean and slowly develop into a dinosaur over a period of hundreds of millions of years. Then those dinosaurs will develop into monkeys, who will then develop into human beings, until another comet strikes the earth and the vicious cycle repeats itself al over again!
---Jed on 10/24/13|
If I recall correctly, it is Deuteronomy 4:19 that says to beware of all planetary/celestial references to the divine.
Isaiah 62:2,Revelation 2:17 and Rev. 3:12 mention TO THE JEWS that Jehovah the creator will have a "NEW NAME", but it is NOT in reference to any celestial body.
---faithforfaith on 10/24/13|
The verses Exodus 3:14 and 15 show that Jehovah (the Jews used to call Him THE GOD WITH NO NAME) wanted to be known as "I AM WHO I AM" (this His "FOREVER"/eternity name,.....Hebrews 9:14 "ETERNAL Spirit").....Isaiah 57:15 is in reference the MESSIAH "He who inhabits ETERNITY".....Ephesians 1:10 "in the FULNESS OF TIME" (completion and end of TIME.
The Jews had only PARTIAL GOD (JEHOVAH only), we have God IN ENTIRETY (Trinity). The Jews in the were told in the Epistles that they had been betrothed/engaged to Jesus in order to present Israel ("her") to the Father as a pure bride.

Every comet always leaves debris wherever it has been, in its path for its trajectory. Between Mars and Jupiter is an asteroid belt, this comet (careened right through this belt.)
Pushing some out-of-the-way and picking some up behind it. We have already seen and been hit with some of these asteroids!
This asteroid will either, hits the sun or go around the sun. This is not my fear! Sometime in early January 2014, after this is all over. We will be passing through this path or debris field.
---TheSeg on 10/23/13|
I just heard of it.
According to Wikipedia, we will not be passing through Ison's tail.
But what if we did? Earth has passed through several comets' tails in the past with no ill effects, though interesting meteor showers.
It's certainly NOT an apocalyptic sign, if that's what you're getting at.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
