Sun Stone Mystery ...
MEDIEVAL NAVIGATION TECHNIQUE Points Way to Northmen Salvation
Nordic history is full of puzzles and riddles! Yet, recently, one of
the biggest mysteries surrounding the Northmen (or Vikings) may have
been solved. For, many have always wondered how the Norsemen were
able to navigate the Northern Seas. Yes, not yet having the magnetic
compass, when the fog and overcast skies would come (and they often
come in this sea region), how did the Northmen find their way?
Well, modern science may have the answer. One of the ancient
Viking sagas has a phrase that when the fog rolled in, the captain
looked to the stone for the sun. What! Well, now geologists have
found on Iceland piles of a particular kind of stone known as coredite.
This stone acts as something of a polarizing lens. Or, in layman's
terms, it only allows the direct, straight line rays of light to pass
through it. However, clouds and fog produce a lot of difuse light,
with the rays of light bent or bouncing off in many directions.
Thus, if the coredite is held in the fog or under overcast skies, it
will appear dark (as it does not allow diffuse light to pass through).
But, if you happen to point it directly at the sun, even in fog, it
allows the direct rays of the sun to pass through, so that it will
light up then!
Consequently, all the Northmen had to do was to move this stone
around in the fog and when it lit up, they knew that it was pointing
directly at the sun. And, from there, they could figure their way.
So, the issue of Viking Medieval Navigation seems solved!
NORSEMEN GOSPEL - NORTHMEN SLAVATION:
FINDING OUR SUN AND SOURCE OF SPIRITUAL LIGHT
Now, the Norsemen Gospel or "Good News" is that in a similiar way, God
is our Spiritual Sun. He gives us LIGHT so that we can find our way
through the clouds and fog of life. And, without HIS guidance, we tend
to lose our way, and flounder. The storms of life roll in and we are
blown way off course (and with the clouds and fog of emotions, can't
find our way)--and wonder how we got there! (Sound familiar?)
Consequently, we need a Sun Stone (Northmen Salvation), that will
point the DIRECT WAY to God, so that we can keep in touch with HIM.
And find our way through the fog of life. Not to mention, being able
to navigate those nasty storms--and still come out reasonably close to
where we wanted to be.
However, before we can do that, we need some background. Why is
there so much fog in life? And how come those nasty storms of life
swoop down on us with such vigor? Well, to answer these, let's take a
quick look at that Norseman Gospel of Nordic Chrisitianity. (Then, we
will more skilled in using the Son Stone that God gives to the Northern
Peoples for Nordic Regeneration.)
GOD's ORGINAL DESIGN - LIGHT!
FOUNDATION OF NORDIC CHRISTIANITY: Beginnings of Norsemen Gospel
The Norseman Gospel was based on the teachings of the Ancient Nordic
Christianity, which, in turn, had its foundation further back, in the
Holy Scriptures or Bible. So, how did it get started? In the
beginning, when God created Man, God designed Man to be something like
(or somewhat similiar) to Himself. The Words of God declare to
Therefore, as we see, God originally designed Man to be in a manner
like HIM, to be god-like (as an Angelic or Supernatural Creature).
This original spiritual state we refer to as a glorfied (or i
lluminated) being, though the Scriptures tend to call them Sons-of-God
(or Angels). Thus, it was God's original intention for Man to be in
intimate contact, communion, and close fellowship with HIM, even
sharing in some of HIS powers and priviliges as god-like or angelic
beings (i.e. being glorified or illuminated with lots of light)! We
were to be HIS Sons or children!
And God said [to Himself]: Let US make Man in OUR Image, after OUR
Likeness [or similitude]...So, God created Man in His OWN Image:
In the Image of God created HE Man--male and female created HE them.
WOW! What happened! I mean Man is so mortal, physical, or
carnal today (and full of darkness). Whatever become of his
god-likeness? Was there some dreadful disaster?
MAN's POWER OF CHOICE - The Right to Err
Nordic Christianity teaches that in order to be something like God,
God did NOT create Man to be a mere robot. Instead, God gave Man Free
Will or the ability to choose to serve God or Not. The Scriptures
plainly put this choice always before us, for it is written:
Thus, by Nordic Christianity, Man is not locked in to a pre-programmed
course of action. Rather, He has some real decisions to make on his
own! So, for better or worse, we can choose our own path in life
(though we may have to face the results or consequences of those
choices--i.e. fog or storms). We are allowed by God to make
up our own mind.
...CHOOSE ye [you] this day whom ye shall serve... (Joshua 24:15).
Unfortunately, Adam (the first Man) did not make a good choice.
As the Scriptures of Our Norse Gospel relate, that back in the dim and
early history to us, Eve (the first woman) chose NOT to obey God and
she ate of the fruit that God had forbidden them to eat of. Worse yet,
she even got Adam to disobey God and eat of the forbidden fruit with
her! Then, because of their rebellion against God's Law (the Command
not to eat of the forbidden fruit), they were punished by being exiled
or cast out of Heaven (away from God), and lost their communion and
fellowship with Him. Worse yet, they then became mere mortals and lost
their god-likeness (and its associated supernatural powers--and
illumination). What a tragedy! This early event is refered to as The
Fall of Man and it is greatly detailed in the Holy Scriptures (Genesis
Thus, while Man was designed to be god-like, by a bad choice
(disobeying God) he lost his immortality (as a Son-of-God) and became
a mere mortal human being! WHAT A CRASH AND BURN! Consequently, a
lot of fog now obscures man's vision (and choices). And, he becomes
susceptible to many of life's storms and disasters! The original light
has gone out of his life.
OUR PROBLEM NOW - Need for Northmen Salvation
But, the biggest tragedy of all this, according to Nordic Christianity,
is that since all of Mankind is descended from this first Man, Adam,
we all have inherited Adam's Sin. We are under the influence of the
ill effects of Man's first disobedience to God (as a massive kind of
drug flash back caused by the forbidden fruit). It is in our genes!
We inherit it! And this is what is refered to as Original Sin for it
is the bad effects of Man's (Adam's) first or original SIN. And
whether we like to admit it or not, we all, as humans, are afflicted
by it. Listen to what God's Word says about it:
It is like some kind of tragic genetic defect that we inherit from our
parents, fore-fathers, and from Adam, himself. We ALL have the nasty,
natural tendancy to to evil or wrong! (To get lost in that fog!)
...For ALL have Sinned and fallen short of the glory [angelhood] God
had intended for us! (Romans 3:23)
This is terrible! Truly we need to be cured or delivered! Yes,
there is a big need for Northmen Salvation or Rescue.
But the worst is yet to come! For the Scriptures warn us that:
...the wages [or earned result] of Sin is DEATH! (Romans 6:23)
Thus the results of our own Sin (the harvest of the evil that we have
sown in life) is DEATH. And this is not just physical death (like we
now experience as mortal beings because of our humanness). Rather, it
is also a Spiritual Death--the death of the remnants of our
supernatural selves, or SOUL (inner man), that are left over from our
god-like design. Thus, we will all come to our mortal end and die.
And our soul will suffer a Spiritual Death, too, because of our Sin
(it will be cast into Hell or the place of supernatural torment and
torture). Thus, the unregenerated face an eternity of agony in their
after-life (when their soul or spirit man will be forced out of its
egg, our dead bodies). Consider well the Warning of God:
Thus, the SIN you inherited (not to mention the evil things that
it may have caused you to do in your life) will cause you to die a
supernatural death in the torments of Hell!
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in which all that are
in the graves shall hear HIS Voice: And they shall come forth;
They that have done good, to a Resurrection [or After-life] of
eternal [angel-like] Paradise. But they that have done evil [SIN],
to a Resurrection of DAMNATION [eternal torment in Hell]! (John
This is awful! Is there no escape? Isn't there anything that
we can do? What about this Northmen Salvation?
FUTILE ATTEMPTS OF SOME - Error of Worldly Religions
Down through the eons, Man has come up with all kinds of Ways to deal
with Sin. But, almost all of these have turned out to be scams:
duping people into false hopes in order to exploit them (or get
something out of them). This is how many of the World's great cults
or false religions got started. And, unfortunately, they all seem to
rely on the same mistaken method (only applied in different ways) and
that is to just do these few good things (or avoid these few bad
things) and you will be all right in your After-life. (In other words,
you can simply work your way into Heaven!) However, the Words of God
sternly warn us:
Do not be deceived! Sin will not just go away. It cannot just be
ignored or explained away. (There is no way you can be good enough
for Heaven!) For God will see your SIN! And HE WILL remember it!
There is a Way [Religion] which seems right unto a Man, BUT THE END
[or result] IS STILL SPIRITUAL DEATH! (Proverbs 14:12).
So, while most of the World's Religions claim to show you a Way
to God or a short-cut to Paradise in Heaven (for a good After-life),
you had better consider what God says about the matter. Give ear to
what is written:
So, don't try to RETURN to Him by just being good or moral! He will
not take you as long as you are tainted by Sin. And, if you die
with this Sin in your life, He will not take your soul to Heaven!
But your iniquities [evil deeds] have separated you from God; And
your Sins have caused Him to hide His Face from you so that He will
not hear you [nor regard you]! (Isaiah 59:2)
For, while many try to hide their Sin or cover up their evil deeds
by a few moral displays (or even deny that they do anything wrong), the
Bible plainly declares:
So, we can't just cover it up, for He knows that we have done great
evil! And, just punishment will be meted out. The wicked will pay for
their Sins by their punishment in Hell!
...all our own righteousness [or morality] is as as filthy rags in
His sight... (Isaiah 64:6)
Hey, there must be a way out! Didn't anyone ever find anything
that ever worked against Sin? What does Nordic Christianity say?
OLD TESTAMENT TREATMENT - The Hebrew Attempt?
Luckily, God so loved Man that HE took pity on him. And, in due time,
HE called Moses to regather the Tribes of Israel in Egypt and institute
(or start) an new method for the TEMPORARY Treatment of Sin. This
method was atonement or blood sacrifice for sins, where a special
animal was to die as our proxy (or instead of us) in order to make
annual payments on our debt of Sin. For the Word of God declares:
Thus, every year the High Priest (descendants of Moses) was to
make a blood sacrifice of a special animal (The Lamb of God) to make
payment for the Sins of the People of Israel that year. But, it soon
became apparent that this was too temporary of a treatment: that Man
was so Sinful (and under its evil influence so much) that he could not
even keep up or maintain the sacrifices needed to make the payments on
his debt of Sin. And, if he couldn't make the payments, then God had
to foreclose! And for their Sins (or disobedience to God), Israel was
divorced, like a wicked woman, by God and given over to conquest (and
ravishment) by her enemies--and dispersed among the Gentile Nations.
A sad ending, to a hopeful start!
...without the shedding of blood, there is no remission [payment or
temporary cure for Sin]. (Hebrews 9:22)
Oh, come on! There must be a way! Isn't there anything that can
work more permenantly against the effects of Sin? What about this
THE NEW TESTAMENT CURE ...
Luckily, Nordic Christianity holds that God had a Plan, for it is
written in the Holy Scriptures:
Now this is the Norsemen Gospel or GOOD NEWS, but what does it mean?
Its message is really simple. Just listen, carefully.
For God so loved the World, that He gave [sacrificed] His only
begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish [in
Hell], but have everlasting [or eternal] life [with God in Paradise]
God sent His Son (or a part of Him), refered to as Y'Shua (Hebrew),
Isse or Isa (Arabic), and Jesus (English): to be the promised Messiah
or Christ, by a miraculous birth through a virgin. (See Matthew
1:18-25 for the details.)
Now wait a minute! Why a
virgin? Why couldn't He have been born like all other men?
Because, if He had been born naturally, from a mortal father, then
He would have inherited Adam's Original Sin, too (just like all the
rest of us). But, by being born miraculously through a virgin, He
didn't inherit any Sin and thus was Sinless (and worthy of being
Okay. But why a Christ? What is that?
A Christ is a Priest-King or Chief of all High-Priests (one who is
in charge of all the High Priests, down through time) especially in
making atonements, or sacrifices for Sins.
Well, then, what kind of atonement did HE make?
Consider the Words of the Scriptures:
In other words, Jesus played the role of the sacrificial lamb, and
shed His own blood on the Cross, to pay for our Sins (permenantly)!
For this is what the Bible teaches:
The next day John [the Baptist] saw Jesus coming to him and said:
Behold, the LAMB OF GOD which takes away the Sins of the World!
He was our proxy: He died in our place, paying for our Sins!
For that was His job as Christ, to offer up a worthy sacrifice to
God to atone for ALL of our Sins! Consider the Words of God:
...God commends [shows] His love for us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died (on the Cross) for us! (Romans 5:8).
For Christ has suffered ONCE [permenantly] for our Sins, the just
[Sinless] for the unjust [Sinfull], that He might RETURN us back to
GOD, being put to death in the flesh [for us, as our proxy, on the
Cross]... (I Peter 3:18).
Now, isn't that GOOD NEWS? The Cross can pay for our sins!
Wow! No wonder some people get so excited about it!
Yes! And it is exciting! As the Christ, Jesus or Y'shua is our
mediator to reconcile (or bring back together) God and Man, so that
we can be in spiritual communion and fellowship, again, as God had
originally intended (See I Timothy 2:5). Thus, Christ's miraculous
work on the Cross allows us to RETURN to God and begin transforming or
CONVERTING into supernatural beings or angels, as He had originally
designed us to be. Jesus can help us RETURN to God, when nothing else
will! Through Him, we can REGENERATE or be CONVERTED back into
This is what the Nordic Regeneration is all about!
TIME TO RESPOND:
Time to make your choice...
Now, what are you going to do with this Norsemen Gospel (or GOOD NEWS)?
Consider the directions of the Scriptures (for you have a choice):
But as many as RECEIVED Him [Jesus], to them He gave power to become
the Sons-of-God [angels], even to those who believe on His Name.
Okay, but how do I receive Him? And what does that mean?
To receive Jesus or Y'Shua means to accept His Salvation or
forgivness of your Sins (which He obtained on the Cross). And the way
of doing it is described in the Scriptures:
...if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall
believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be
Saved [delivered from your Sins]. For with the heart Man believes
unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto
Salvation. (Romans 10:9-10).
Okay, but how do I do that? What does that mean I should do?
The easiest way is to simply repeat the following prayer. It
forms a kind of Mediavel contract or covenant between you and God,
concerning the work of His Son, so that the Cross will pay for your
Sins. And, you need to say it out loud, so that God will know that
you really do agree to it:
- FIRST, Heavenly Father, I admit and confess to YOU that
I have Sinned, and done evil in YOUR sight, so that I am worthy of
death (and punishment in Hell).
- SECOND, I humbly plead with you to be merciful to me, and
to forgive me of my Sins, because of your Son (Jesus), who died on
the cross, shedding His own precious Blood to pay for my Sins (as
my death by proxy).
- THIRD, I now renounce the Devil (the Norse gods) and all
of their wicked ways; And in the name of Jesus I command all the
forces of evil to be gone from my life, now and forever!
- FOURTH, instead, Heavenly Father, I ask you to send YOUR
Holy Ghost into my heart and life: leading me, teaching me, and
protecting me (and Manifesting YOUR Power and Presence in my
If you have agreed with that prayer and have said it aloud, then you
are now SAVED (i.e. Northmen Salvation: spiritually conceived as a
new child of God, hence regenerating or undergoing CONVERSION of your
own personal soul into an illuminated, spiritual being)! For the
Bible tells us:
So your Sins (even Adam's Original Sin) are paid for by the Blood
Jesus shed on the Cross as the LAMB OF GOD (or worthy sacrifice), if
you have called on God (as we did in that prayer).
...whosoever shall call upon the Name Lord Jesus shall be Saved
[have their Sins paid for by the Cross] (Romans 10:13).
NOW THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT OCCASSION!
Getting SAVED or giving your heart to Christ (for conversion to an
angel-like being) is no small decision. Not only is it very important
to your own future (and After-life), but it is also very important to
others of the Faith. It is not the sort of thing that you should hide
or keep concealed. Rather, you need to tell someone else about it,
especially other Believers. For they can help you grow even more,
Spiritually (for we are to help one another). So, if you really did
pray that prayer to become Saved, then let us know. Don't delay!
