What Does it Mean That Jesus Christ (Yahshua HaMashiach) is King of kings And Lord of lords? "Why Is Jesus Christ Going To Return On A White Horse?"

Question: "What does it mean that Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords?"

Answer: The phrase “king of kings” is used in Scripture six times, three of which refer to the Lord Jesus (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14, 19:16). The other three (Ezra 7:12; Ezekiel 26:7; Daniel 2:37) refer to either Artaxerxes or Nebuchadnezzar, kings who used the phrase to express their absolute sovereignty over their respective realms (Persia and Babylon). The phrase “lord of lords” is used in Scripture five times, and only referring to God (Deuteronomy 10:17; Psalm 136:3; 1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14, 19:16). Used together, the two phrases refer only to the Lord Jesus Christ.

In 1 Timothy 6, Paul is wrapping up his letter to Timothy, telling him to fight the good fight and keep his profession of faith. He tells Timothy that he’s to do this “until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,” whom he subsequently refers to as “the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion.” The title is used to indicate someone who has the power to exercise absolute dominion over all His realm. In the case of the Lord Jesus, the realm is all of creation. Paul labors to emphasize the solitary nature of Christ’s rule, calling Him the “only” Sovereign, who is “alone” and “unapproachable.” The rule of Jesus is unique and above that of all other rulers.

The other two uses of the phrase, those in Revelation, refer to the final conquest and return of Jesus. The implication is that in the end all other rulers will be conquered or abolished, and He alone will reign supreme as King and Lord of all creation and creatures. There is no power, no king, and no lord who can oppose Him and win. There are myriad references to this absolute rule of Jesus, and His preeminence over other rulers, all throughout Scripture, some subtle, some overt. To mention just a few, Isaiah 40:23-24 says that the Lord brings “princes to nothing” and makes earth’s rulers “emptiness.” The mere breath of the Lord will “carry them off like stubble.” Daniel’s vision of the son of man in Daniel 7:13-14 is of one whom he calls “the Ancient of Days” whose everlasting dominion is over all people, nations and languages. In the New Testament, we get a better view of whom these passages refer to when the writer of Hebrews speaks of the Lord Jesus: “He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3). The next verse speaks of Jesus being “much superior” to the angels. Clearly, His rule over creation is absolute.

Paul makes the point that this rule is derived from Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. In Philippians 2:5-11, he discusses the extent to which Jesus went to atone for sinners and concludes that this is the reason that “God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (vv. 9-11).

Finally, in the book of Revelation we see the Kingship of Jesus made manifest. In chapter 5, the Lamb (Jesus) is the only one in all creation found worthy to open the scroll containing the judgments of God (vv. 2-5). In chapter 11, we hear voices in heaven proclaiming that the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of Christ, and that He will reign forever and ever (v. 15). In chapter 12, we read that the authority of Christ is what causes Satan to be thrown down to earth (vv. 9-10). In chapter 17:12-14, the Lamb conquers all those arrayed against Him, and John stresses that He conquers because He is King of kings and Lord of lords. Finally, in chapter 19, we read of His triumphant coming to strike the nations and tread the winepress of the wrath of God, having the authority to do so because He is King of kings and Lord of lords (vv. 11-16).

Fundamentally, the idea of Jesus being King of kings and Lord of lords means that there is no higher authority. His reign over all things is absolute and inviolable. God raised Him from the dead and placed Him over all things, “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all” (Ephesians 1:21-23).
Songs of Victory in Heaven
Revelation 19 Amplified Bible (AMP)
[source: Biblegateway.org]

1 After this I heard what sounded like a mighty shout of a great crowd in heaven, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! Salvation and glory (splendor and majesty) and power (dominion and authority) [belong] to our God!

2 Because His judgments (His condemnation and punishment, His sentences of doom) are true and sound and just and upright. He has judged (convicted, pronounced sentence, and doomed) the great and notorious harlot (idolatress) who corrupted and demoralized and poisoned the earth with her lewdness and adultery (idolatry). And He has avenged (visited on her the penalty for) the blood of His servants at her hand.

3 And again they shouted, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! The smoke of her [burning] shall continue to ascend forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities).

4 Then the twenty-four elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin] and the four living creatures fell prostrate and worshiped [paying divine honors to] God, Who sits on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah (praise the Lord)!

5 Then from the throne there came a voice, saying, Praise our God, all you servants of His, you who reverence Him, both small and great!

6 After that I heard what sounded like the shout of a vast throng, like the boom of many pounding waves, and like the roar of terrific and mighty peals of thunder, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! For now the Lord our God the Omnipotent (the All-Ruler) reigns!

7 Let us rejoice and shout for joy [exulting and triumphant]! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb [at last] has come, and His bride has prepared herself.

8 She has been permitted to dress in fine (radiant) linen, dazzling and white—for the fine linen is (signifies, represents) the righteousness (the upright, just, and godly living, deeds, and conduct, and right standing with God) of the saints (God’s holy people).

9 Then [the angel] said to me, Write this down: Blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [further], These are the true words (the genuine and exact declarations) of God.

10 Then I fell prostrate at his feet to worship (to pay divine honors) to him, but he [restrained me] and said, Refrain! [You must not do that!] I am [only] another servant with you and your brethren who have [accepted and hold] the testimony borne by Jesus. Worship God! For the substance (essence) of the truth revealed by Jesus is the spirit of all prophecy [the vital breath, the inspiration of all inspired preaching and interpretation of the divine will and purpose, including both mine and yours].

The Heavenly Warrior Defeats the Beast

11 After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]! ๐Ÿ‘ˆThe One Who was riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).

12 His eyes [blaze] like a flame of fire, and on His head are many kingly crowns (diadems); and He has a title (name) inscribed which He alone knows or can understand.

13 He is dressed in a robe dyed by dipping in blood, and the title by which ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ He is called is The WORD of God. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

14 And the troops of heaven, clothed in fine linen, dazzling and clean, followed Him on white horses.

15 From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations; and He will shepherd and control them with a staff (scepter, rod) of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent).

16 And on His garment (robe) and on His thigh He has a name (title) inscribed:

king of kings and lord of lords.

17 Then I saw a single angel stationed in the sun’s light, and with a mighty voice he shouted to all the birds that fly across the sky, Come, gather yourselves together for the great supper of God,

18 That you may feast on the flesh of rulers, the flesh of generals and captains, the flesh of powerful and mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all humanity, both free and slave, both small and great!

19 Then I saw the beast and the rulers and leaders of the earth with their troops mustered to go into battle and make war against Him Who is mounted on the horse and against His troops.

20 And the beast was seized and overpowered, and with him the false prophet who in his presence had worked wonders and performed miracles by which he led astray those who had accepted or permitted to be placed upon them the stamp (mark) of the beast and those who paid homage and gave divine honors to his statue. Both of them were hurled alive into the fiery lake that burns and blazes with brimstone.

21 And the rest were killed with the sword that issues from the mouth of Him Who is mounted on the horse, and all the birds fed ravenously and glutted themselves with their flesh.

Revelation 19 Shows Angels and Saints Following Jesus in Battle of Good and Evil
A magnificent white horse carries Jesus Christ as he leads angels and saints in a dramatic battle between good and evil after Jesus' return to Earth, the Bible describes in Revelation 19:11-21. Here's a summary of the story, with commentary:

White Horse of Heaven

The story begins in verse 11 when the apostle John (who wrote the book of Revelation) describes his vision of the future after Jesus has come to Earth a second time:
"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice, he judges and wages war."
This verse refers to Jesus bringing judgment against evil in the world after he returns to Earth. The white horse that Jesus rides symbolically depicts the holy and pure power that Jesus has to overcome evil with good.

Leading Armies of Angels and Saints

The story continues in verses 12 through 16:
"His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses[...] On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS."
Jesus and the armies of heaven (which are made up of angels led by Archangel Michael, and the saints -- dressed in white linen that symbolizes holiness) will fight against the Antichrist, a deceptive and evil figure who the Bible says will appear on the Earth before Jesus returns and will be influenced by Satan and his fallen angels. Jesus and his holy angels will emerge victorious from the battle, the Bible says.

Each of the horse rider’s names say something about who Jesus is: "Faithful and True" expresses his trustworthiness, the fact that "he has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself" refers to his ultimate power and holy mystery, the "Word of God" highlights Jesus’ role in creating the universe by speaking everything into existence, and "King of Kings and Lord of Lords" expresses Jesus’ ultimate authority as an incarnation of God.

An Angel Standing in the Sun

As the story continues in verses 17 and 18, an angel stands in the sun and makes an announcement:
"And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, 'Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.'"
This vision of a holy angel inviting vultures to eat the dead bodies of those who had fought for evil purposes symbolizes the complete destruction that results from evil.

Finally, verses 19 through 21 describe the epic battle that occurs between Jesus and his holy forces and the Antichrist and his evil forces—culminating in the destruction of evil and victory for good. In the end, God wins.

Jesus Christ Is Sitting At The Right Hand Of The Father NOT Archangel Michael As Many Believe. For It Is Written Jesus Christ The WORD Of God Made Flesh To Walk Among Us Is Greater Than the Angels.

Luke 22:69 ESV
But from now on the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.”

Let me give a common understanding and then a more sophisticated historical understanding.

The common understanding is that "Son of God" implies his deity—which it does—and that "Son of Man" implies his humanity, which it does too.

He was a son of man, that is, a human being. And he is the Son of God, in that he has always existed as the Eternally Begotten One who comes forth from the Father forever. He always has, and he always will. He is the Second Person of the Trinity with all of the divine nature fully in him.

He is born of a virgin. He had a human father but he didn't have sex with this virgin until Jesus was conceived. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit in the virgin Mary. Thus he is human—fully human. The Bible wants to emphasize that he is fully human.

So that's the common understanding: he is both divine and he is human—two natures, one person.

No, Michael the Archangel is not really Jesus Christ. The non-Christian cult known as the Jehovah's Witnesses teach that they are the same. The Seventh Day Adventists teach the same; but Michael the Archangel is just that--an Archangel, and Jesus is not a created angel.

There are three archangels named in the Bible: Michael (the warrior Angel), Gabriel (the messenger Angel), and Lucifer (who became the devil).

Michael the Archangel is mentioned in different passages.
  • Daniel 10:13, "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia."
  • Daniel 10:21, "However, I will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth. Yet there is no one who stands firmly with me against these forces except Michael your prince."
  • Daniel 12:1, "Now at that time Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued."
  • Jude 9, "But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you."
  • Rev. 12:7, "And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels waged war."
Perhaps the best proof text to demonstrate that Michael the Archangel and Jesus are not the same person is found in Jude 9. The Lord Jesus would not have to call on the name of anyone else in order to rebuke the devil because the Lord Jesus is God in flesh. However, we see that Michael the Archangel said, "The Lord rebuke you," thereby demonstrating that he is not the Lord.
From Christianity.com:

Do Jehovah's Witnesses use the same Bible as Christians?
Jehovah's Witnesses use a Bible translation called the New World Translation. Before this translation was released specifically by and for Jehovah's Witnesses, most relied on the King James Version. According to TowerWatch.com:

"The New World Translation of the Bible is Jehovah's Witnesses own translation, no other religious group uses this Bible and Jehovah's Witnesses make very little use of other Bibles.

Do Jehovah's Witnesses believe in the Trinity?
The answer to this is no. It is one of the more major ways in which Jehovah's Witnesses differ from various Christian denominations. See the next couple points for more details on this. Jehovah's Witnesses refer to the fact that the Bible never explicitly mentions the term "trinity." They claim this "doctrine developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies."

What do Jehovah's Witnesses teach about Jesus?
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus is not equal with God. They teach that Jesus was created by God and not coexistent with Him. This, of course, is a major diversion from orthodox Christianity. JW.org explains, "[W]e take Jesus at his word when he said: 'The Father is greater than I am.' (John 14:28) So we do not worship Jesus, as we do not believe that he is Almighty God."

What do Jehovah's Witnesses believe about the Holy Spirit?
Similar to their view of Jesus, Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father. The instead believe the Holy Spirit is a force applied by God. They claim that the Holy Spirit is "impersonal": "By referring to God’s spirit as his 'hands,' 'fingers,' or 'breath,' the Bible shows that the holy spirit is not a person. (Exodus 15:8, 10) A craftsman’s hands cannot function independent of his mind and body; likewise, God’s holy spirit operates only as he directs it. (Luke 11:13) The Bible also compares God’s spirit to water and associates it with such things as faith and knowledge. These comparisons all point to the impersonal nature of the holy spirit."

How many Jehovah's Witnesses are there today?
There are reportedly 8.3 million Jehovah's Witnesses around the world and nearly 120,000 congregations. They are also known for their evangelical work going door-to-door attempting to make converts.

Jesus Christ Is God’s Son

1 Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. 2 And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ and through the Son he created the universe ๐Ÿ‘ˆ (reference: John 1). 3 The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.
3 AMPLIFIED VERSION: He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,
4 This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.

The Son Is Greater Than the Angels ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

5 For God never said to any angel what he said to Jesus:

“You are my Son. Today I have become your Father.”

God also said,
“I will be his Father, and he will be my Son.”

6 And when he brought his supreme Son into the world, God said,

“Let all of God’s angels worship him.” ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

7 Regarding the angels, he says,
“He sends his angels like the winds, his servants like flames of fire.”

8 But to the Son he says,
Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice. 9 You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”

10 He also says to the Son,

In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands. 11 They will perish, but you remain forever. They will wear out like old clothing. 12 You will fold them up like a cloak and discard them like old clothing. But you are always the same; you will live forever.”

13 And God never said to any of the angels,
“Sit in the place of honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.”

14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.

Life Through the Spirit
Romans 8:1-17 NIV
[source: Biblegateway]

Life Through the Spirit

1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (the living breathing WORD of God), 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives LIFE has set you FREE from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the (Holy) Spirit.

5 Those who live according to the flesh (this world, man's law, your own will, selfishness) have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the (Holy) Spirit, if indeed the (Holy) Spirit of God (the breath of God) lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ (the Word of God) is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
Our souls have been eternally redeemed by the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross for those who believe. Jesus Christ was sacrificed on our behalf. Jesus Christ (Yahshua Hamashiach) was God's WORD made flesh to walk among us. Demons (evil spirits, dark forces, negative energy) tremble in fear at the name of Jesus Christ. When you are feeling distressed, call on the name of Jesus Christ. Say His name, whisper it if you have to, but call out to Him. Tell Jesus that you need Him, that you need to feel His presence, you need His help. Within minutes, you will feel the Holy Spirit hugging you tight deep within your spirit and soon afterward your tears will be dried up and you will be filled with an enormous amount of LOVE that cannot be compared to anything on earth.

When you plead the blood of Jesus Christ over your life, your mind, your health, your home environment, your finances, your loved ones (name them) etc., demons (evil spirits, dark forces, negative energy) are cast out, banished. Ask God to put a protective hedge around you so that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. You have to be vigilant about this. Every day and most especially every time you feel weak or in distress.

When you ask God for forgiveness and surrender your life to God, you are filled with the Holy Spirit and it is the Holy Spirit who begins the process of transforming you from the inside out. Not by your will, but by the will of God. Overtime, you will no longer desire to do the former things as God get's you in line for His perfect will for your life. Sin simply means come short of the glory of God's perfection; missed the mark; fallen short of the standard that God expects for us. None of us is perfect, therefore all of us walk in sin, even the preachers/pastors who constantly condemn everybody. Jesus didn't die on the cross and shed His blood for us so that all of humanity would continue to live in condemnation. It's Satan who seeks to condemn you always to keep you from the love of God, your Heavenly Father, the source of your being. This is why it is important to ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in your day to day activities and choices. Ask the Holy Spirit to direct your steps. Please understand that God loves you soooo much unconditionally. He doesn't condemn you for your imperfections. He wants you to love Him in return of your own free will. You being saved has nothing to do with religion or a cult. This is about you feeling unconditional love that can't be compared to anything on this earth. God almighty, your Creator, wants to have a "personal" relationship with you. Read 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 NIV. (emphasis mine)
12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh (this world, man's law, your own will), to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the (Holy) Spirit (the breath of God) you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The (Holy) Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the (Holy) Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The (Holy) Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ (the annointed, the WORD), if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Future Glory

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the (Holy) Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

26 In the same way, the (Holy) Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the (Holy) Spirit, because the (Holy) Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.

More Than Conquerors

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Power to Change Your Life: Ten Keys to Resilient Living

The Power to Change Your Life: Ten Keys to Resilient Living

Stress Hardiness and a Resilient Mindset

These statistics might prompt some people to become even more worried, but that is not our intention. If we recognize the effect stress has on our lives, we will be better prepared to manage it and learn to lead more productive, satisfying, healthy, and resilient lives. Being resilient does not mean we eliminate all risks or adverse conditions, but rather when they arise we deal with these conditions effectively.

Resilient individuals possess a particular mindset and accompanying skills that help them respond to life’s challenges with confidence and grace. What are the features of this mindset? What assumptions do resilient people have about themselves that reduce their vulnerability to stress and help them to cope more productively? Certainly, one’s lifestyle, including exercise, diet, and sleep all influence the effectiveness with which stress is managed. But how do you nurture such a healthy existence? In this article, we will describe ten keys for developing stress hardiness and a resilient mindset and lifestyle. As you read about each key, ask yourself, “Am I practicing this? If not, what must I change to strengthen my resilient mindset?” Also, remember that changing one’s mindset and behavior takes time. Be realistic in what you can accomplish within a certain timeframe. Each small step leads to reaching a larger goal.

Key #1: Rewrite Your Negative Scripts

Do you find yourself saying or doing the same ineffective things over and over again? It is impressive how many people do. We often become trapped, blindly following a prescribed script that does not allow for change or creativity in the face of stress and problems. Yet, we are the authors of our lives. We can move from less satisfying, less productive scripts, to ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving that foster a resilient mindset. Identify the negative scripts in your life or things you would like to change. Define short and long-term goals related to these issues. Consider new scripts, select one that you believe has the greatest chance for success, plan for obstacles, and follow through. Change cannot take place unless we become active participants in our lives.

Key #2: Choose a Path to Become Stress Hardy Rather Than Stressed Out

Research indicates that stress hardy people engage in activities that bring purpose or meaning to their lives whether in their role as parent, spouse, co-worker, or friend or in the volunteer work they do. What would you list as the priorities in your life and do you spend time engaged in these activities? In addition, stress hardy individuals view difficult situations as an expected part of life. When such situations arise, they interpret them as challenges to confront and learn from rather than as stress to avoid. It is helpful to recall that in the Chinese language the same word is used for “crisis” and “opportunity with danger.” Stress hardy people can define the factors over which they have control and those that they don’t, focusing their time and energy on situations within their sphere of influence. You might wish to do the following. Make a list of five things you want to see different in your life and then next to each item write down whether someone else has to change first for you to achieve your goal. If you discover that your happiness is based on another person changing first, whomever it may be, you might be waiting a long time to become happy. You are likely to become increasingly stressed during the wait. You will feel empowered if you focus your time and energy on what you can do differently to improve particular situations.

Key #3: View Life Through the Eyes of Others

Resilient individuals develop satisfying relationships in their lives. A cornerstone of such relationships is the capacity to be empathic and to place oneself inside the shoes of others and see the world through their eyes. To become more empathic ask yourself, “In anything I say or do, what do I hope to accomplish? Do I say or do things in ways that will motivate others to be willing to listen and respond to me? Do I behave towards others in the same way I would like them to behave towards me?” Make a list of the words you hope people would use to describe you and then the words you think they would actually use. Reflect upon what actions you might take to change your behavior so that the two lists of words are more in accord with each other.

Key #4: Communicate Effectively

The ability to communicate effectively is an integral component of resilience and is closely linked to empathy. Effective communication includes an appreciation of how our verbal and nonverbal messages are perceived by others and our capacity to be an active listener. Active listeners attempt to understand what the other person is expressing and even if they disagree they are respectful and validate that they “hear” the other person’s viewpoint. The more effectively we learn to convey our feelings, thoughts, and beliefs verbally and nonverbally, the more successful and resilient we will be.

Key #5: Accept Yourself and Others

If you are to nurture a resilient mindset, you must learn to accept yourself. Acceptance implies possessing realistic expectations and goals, recognizing your strengths as well as vulnerabilities, and leading an authentic, balanced life in which your behaviors are in accord with your values and goals. Make a list of five things that are important to you and consider why these are important. View each item on your list and reflect upon how much of your time and energy is expended to achieve what you have listed. As you learn to accept yourself, as you gain a clear picture of your strengths and vulnerabilities, as you articulate your values, you will be in a position to remove those factors that serve as obstacles to realizing a more honest, enriched life.

Key #6: Make Connections and Display Compassion

It is difficult to be resilient if we do not nurture connections in our lives—connections to other people, to ideals, to our faith, to causes. Psychologist Julius Segal, when discussing individuals who enrich the lives of children, referred to them as “charismatic adults,” people from whom children “gather strength.” Even as adults we need people in our lives from whom we gather strength. In addition, our resilience will be enhanced if we serve as a source of strength and support for others. In this regard, consider the following questions: “Who are the two or three people who serve as charismatic adults in my life? What have they done that has prompted me to list them in this way? What people would say that I am the charismatic adult in their lives, and why? Aside from relationships with people, what other activities in my life supply me with a sense of connectedness? In what ways am I compassionate and giving?” Being connected to and helping others provide meaning to our lives and serve as nutriments for resilience.

Key #7: Learn to Deal with Mistakes

The ways in which we understand and respond to mistakes and failure are an integral part of a resilient mindset. When you make a mistake, what do you tell yourself? How do you react? Resilient people consider mistakes as experiences for learning and growth. They ask themselves, “What can I do differently next time to succeed?” Those who are not resilient typically interpret mistakes as attributable to conditions that cannot be easily corrected, such as a lack of intelligence. They feel defeated by mistakes and often end up blaming others or quitting or refusing to attempt things. Observe what you say to yourself when you make a mistake. It will give you a clue to how resilient you are and what you might have to change.

Key #8: Learn to Deal with Success and Build Islands of Competence

Just as the manner in which we understand and respond to setbacks is an integral part of a resilient mindset so too, is the way we react to successes in our lives. Think about how you understand your achievements. Those who are resilient view their accomplishments as based upon their own resources and strengths. This doesn’t mean they fail to acknowledge the support of others. Rather, they don’t dismiss or minimize what they have achieved. In contrast, people who are not resilient tend to attribute their success to factors outside their control such as luck or chance or fate. Consequently, they are not as confident or optimistic about being successful in the future. There is another feature of resilient people we wish to highlight. While they do not deny their vulnerabilities, they are able to identify their strengths or what we call their “islands of competence.” What would you list as your islands of competence? Do you regularly engage in these strengths to bolster your resilience?

Key #9: Continue Developing Self-Discipline and Self-Control

Self-discipline and self-control play a significant role in our daily activities. When we think before we act, when we consider the feelings of others, when we reflect upon possible solutions to problems, when we behave in a rational and thoughtful way, when we engage in developing a business plan, when we keep from screaming at someone who has done something to make us angry, we are displaying self-discipline and self-control. It is a major component of stress-hardiness and resilience. Self-discipline and self-control must be exercised in the following ways: Accept ownership for your behavior. Be consistent, but not rigid. Become a proactive problem solver, thinking of different solutions before you act. Believe that every problem has a possible solution. Remember that with effort and patience, possible solutions become probable solutions. It is difficult to be resilient and have satisfying relationships if you are impulsive, arbitrary, and unpredictable. We believe that these negative traits can be changed as long as we first acknowledge their existence and then develop a realistic plan of action to modify these counterproductive behaviors.

Key #10: Maintaining Your Resilient Lifestyle Takes Work

If we abandon well-established diets and exercise, our health will suffer. The same principle is true when we consider the maintenance of a resilient lifestyle. Once you have developed the features associated with a resilient mindset and lifestyle, you cannot settle back and assume these qualities will be maintained on automatic pilot. Expected and unexpected challenges will emerge that will test your ability to be resilient. The more you understand the characteristics of resilient individuals, the more you can engage in daily and long-term exercises to maintain, and even strengthen, a resilient mindset. Each and every day consider: “Have I listened and communicated effectively with others? Have I responded to stress, mistakes, and setbacks in thoughtful ways? Have I maintained connections to people, ideals, causes, and faith?” Leading a resilient lifestyle should be in constant focus.

A Resilient Mindset Will Change Your Life

The road towards nurturing a resilient mindset and lifestyle, one that leads to stress hardiness, is neither straightforward, nor direct. The road often contains obstacles and detours that interfere with reaching your destinations. However, the more knowledgeable you are about the components of a resilient mindset, as well as the roadblocks to its attainment, the more diligent you can become to change any existing counterproductive ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. By so doing, you will become better equipped and confident to discover those paths that lead to a productive, fulfilling life, a life that encourages you to plan and dream, to bring joy to others, to laugh, and to appreciate that you truly are the author of your own life.

USA: Ghislaine Maxwell Doesn’t Want Accusers Being Called Victims At Trial. Secretary of State Antony Blinken's Stepfather Was A Close Confidant And Lawyer For Ghislaine's Father Robert Maxwell

New York Post
written by Lee Brown
Wednesday October 20, 2021

Ghislaine Maxwell is fighting to ban any of her accusers from being called “victims” at her upcoming sex-trafficking trial — as well as any mention of “rape” by her late boss Jeffrey Epstein, court documents show.

The accused madam’s legal team filed motions in Manhattan federal court late Monday seeking to have 13 items excluded ahead of her trial next month.

They include a “motion to preclude testimony about any alleged ‘rape’ by Jeffrey Epstein” as well as a “motion to preclude reference to the accusers as “victims” or “minor victims.”

Others include a bid to “exclude evidence related to accuser-3,” who was not identified in the filing, as well as any law enforcement witnesses from offering “expert opinion testimony.”

The filing also seeks to forbid any mention of “alleged flight,” preventing prosecutors from suggesting the 59-year-old media heiress was on the run when she was busted in July last year in a New Hampshire estate called “Tucked Away.”

Another motion was to “exclude evidence of Ms. Maxwell’s alleged false statements” and “allegations related to the perjury counts” from her earlier on-the-record testimony in lawsuits.

There is also a motion to “exclude items purportedly seized during search of 358 El Brillo Way on October 20, 2005” — referring to Epstein’s former mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.

Judge Alison Nathan has yet to rule on the motions.

Maxwell has been held without bail since her arrest, accused of procuring underage girls for multimillionaire pedophile Epstein to abuse in the 1990s and early 2000s.

She’s pleaded not guilty to the charges and requested five times that she be let out on bail pending trial. She was denied each time.

Her legal team has repeatedly complained about conditions in her Brooklyn lockup, as well as unfair press coverage that they’ve argued left her “tried, convicted, and condemned in the court of public opinion.”

The next hearing is a telephone conference Thursday ahead of a “firm trial date” of Nov. 29.

Epstein killed himself while awaiting trial for sex trafficking in a Lower Manhattan jail cell shortly after his arrest in 2019.

Samuel Pisar, the stepfather of Biden regime Secretary of State Antony Blinken, was a close confidant and lawyer for Ghislaine Maxwell’s father Robert Maxwell. Blinken’s stepfather was reportedly the last person to speak to Maxwell before he mysteriously fell to his death off the Lady Ghislaine while cruising near Spain’s Canary Islands in 1991.

Most Americans may know Secretary of State Antony Blinken for his major role in the devastating Biden administration Afghanistan Disaster, or perhaps for his warmongering while working for the Bush and Obama administrations. However, many may not know that he has connections to the convicted pedophile, ritualistic sex predator, and international elite human trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, who was identified as a Mossad agent who blackmailed world leaders with underage sex traps by former high-ranking Israeli intelligence officials.

Ghislaine Maxwell’s father Robert Maxwell was well-known in intelligence circles as a top confidant of Mossad leadership, National File Senior Reporter Patrick Howley revealed. Samuel Pisar, Secretary Blinken’s stepfather, was a close confidant and lawyer for Robert Maxwell.

Secretary Blinken attended the Dalton School until 1971. National File reported in June that the prestigious New York prep school employed Epstein in a teaching position only a few years later, in 1974. The school has a long and prestigious history of educating the children of wealthy families, and has employed several noteworthy figures including William Barr, erotic novel author and father of disgraced former Attorney General Bill Barr, who previously served as the school’s headmaster and hired Epstein.
Epstein purchased a $56 million mansion located just a mile south of Dalton School, where prosecutors at his sex trafficking trial alleged he paid “numerous” underage girls for sexual services. During his time at Dalton, Epstein’s strange behavior around young girls attracted attention. “It was weird,” one student said. “Everyone talked about it.”
Secretary Blinken’s stepfather was a close confidant and lawyer for Ghislaine Maxwell’s father, Robert Maxwell, who mysteriously fell to his death off the Lady Ghislaine in 1991. Pisar is reportedly one of the last people to have spoken to Maxwell before his death, according to the New York Times.
Among those arguing against any signs of despair are Mr. Maxwell’s son Ian and his lawyer and confidant, Samuel Pisar. They are among the last people, aside from the crew members, to talk to Mr. Maxwell. Both men spoke to him by phone aboard his yacht, around 11 P.M., about an hour after he returned from a solitary dinner in a restaurant in the port city of Santa Cruz.

Mr. Pisar said Mr. Maxwell seemed his normal, confident self and discussed plans and appointments. Ian Maxwell told reporters that his father had planned to travel to London the following day and that their conversation ended with Ian saying, “See you tomorrow, then,” and his father replying, “You bet.”
From 1994 to 2001, Secretary Blinken served on the National Security Council staff. Leah Pisar, his stepsister, also served on the National Security Council staff during the Clinton administration. She also worked for the State Department, the U.S. Embassy in Paris, France, and was a communications director for President Clinton.

Readers may find it interesting that Secretary Blinken had once served as the director of a nonprofit organization now known as Action Against Abduction from 2001-2002, according to opencorporates, a global database of the corporate world. The organization was originally called The International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children and then, Parents and Abducted Children Together, before changing their name to Action Against Abduction in 2015.
Action Against Abduction works to protect children from the threat of abduction. This includes abduction by a family member, by people who are known but not related to children, and by strangers. We aim to give parents the best information, and to ensure professionals have the right policies, so that we keep all of our children safe.
