Yes, the One True Ark of the Covenant of Israel rests in Axum, Ethiopia, the true presence of God on earth, amen. However, the Shake will be the CONTINENT of Africa on the 25th day of May 2018, amen. The Shake is the significant sign to the world, the Ark rests in Axum, Ethiopia, amen. Peace.

You're awarded SSDI because you or your representative approached the US government (petitioned) with evidence that you're not capable of functional work or supporting and taking care of yourself and the government (though the judge) agreed.

Trying to extort a job from a company or two is not going to convince anyone you're capable of supporting yourself. Go play the lottery like everyone else and you'll have a better chance of actually getting the money to get off the dole.

I AM diagnosed with schizoaffective Disorder and Depression.

The Schizo is hearing voices, in my case, the Voice of God The Father and The Blessed Mother, amen.

The Depression, is knowing those who will perish from the Shake of Africa, amen.

That's what I'm saying. Anyway, I know how it really sucks to have to try and support yourself on SSDI but as I said, you'll have better luck with the lottery.

In order to be on SSDI along with the proper documents, you have to be sworn under oath. If I did not tell the truth, I would have committed perjury in court, and in the presence of the SSA Judge. Are you accusing I AM committed perjury?

Please see post #66. and then tell me if I AM committing extortion.

If I do not hear back from you, then I AM right and you are wrong, accused I AM falsely.

HIPPA rules forbid disclosure of medical records and you're really not interesting enough to make the effort. I hope you get professional help for what's ailing you and you stay off the intrawebz.

Yes I AM aware of HIPPA. Whatever you want to know, I AM will give to you, and share with the readers/viewers here.

I AM have shared with you and the readers the SSA doc I AM awarded SSDI.

I AM offering full disclosure.

Now, what is it that you desire to know? Don't hide behind HIPPA.

If you're not interested, then why are you posting?

May I?

Inquiring minds might like to know:

Why should anyone believe that you have knowledge or influence about continent-wide seismic activity?

Why would Bechtel, the Vatican, etc believe you or give you any money?

Say I claimed that I would release a plague of frogs unless Wal-Mart or the Church of Appliantology totally hooked me up with $420. Say I further submitted proof of collecting Unemployment Insurance, who may have been asking questions about how willfully unemployed I really am. Would you give me the money?

I AM not asking Bechtel or Xylem to give I AM money. Please see posting #66.

I AM not asking anyone to believe I AM, it is your own free will to believe or not. I guess you can look at it as, I AM the messenger.

Now regarding the Vatican, that's a whole different story in itself lol

I'm still struggling to understand you, but it sounds like you are interpreting the fact that you were put on SSDI as confirmation that you are hearing the voice of God. That is not a correct interpretation.

Hearing voices is often a symptom of a mental illness. You have been diagnosed with a mental illness, and accordingly are being given financial assistance. This just means that you have convinced the relevant authorities that you have a mental illness, not that you are correctly interpreting a symptom of that mental illness as communication from God.

The people who diagnosed you with a mental illness and granted you financial assistance do not believe you are hearing the voice of God. They believe that you believe you are hearing the voice of God, and that this erroneous belief is a symptom of a mental illness.

Your previous posts said you wanted to have a job or lots of money from the Vatican and if they didn't give it to you, the continent of Africa will shake. That's extortion.

But you have no worries from me. I don't believe you will ever get in trouble for extorting a job or money from the Vatican because the threat is clearly not possible. In that sense, I'm making a joke to see if you're paying attention. You have ignored twice now so far when I asked you why you are not promising good things to happen if people are kind to you rather than promising or predicting bad things if people don't behave kindly to you.

Sure doesn't sound like a loving god to me at any rate.

I'm understanding the same thing you are, it appears. I could be wrong but this kind of mistaken confirmation happens fairly often; at least from what I've heard.

And here we go, folks. JBReyes777, would you agree, then, that for your prediction to come to pass the earthquake will have to measure at least 6 on the Richter scale? I'll repost this link, and I'll quote the relevant parts:

Quote:
5.5 to 6.0 Slight damage to buildings and other structures.
6.1 to 6.9 May cause a lot of damage in very populated areas.
7.0 to 7.9 Major earthquake. Serious damage.
8.0 or greater Great earthquake. Can totally destroy communities near the epicenter.
It seems to me that if you're predicting certain deaths, the 5.5-6.0 range wouldn't cover it. The very least we could be talking about is 6.1, but for simplicity's sake we'll say 6.0. Would you say that's fair?

You seem to be talking about something bigger than that, and perhaps "serious damage", or even "can totally destroy communities near the epicentre" would be more appropriate, but I don't want to set unreasonable expectations. 6 or greater is rare enough (again - the last one occurred 11 months ago, the one before that 8 years ago) that we can say it may be significant if one does occur when you predict.

Do you agree that you're talking about an earthquake that measures 6 or more on the Richter scale?

Come on, he said he's got schizoaffective disorder...

Trying to get him to be rational, or pin him down on specific claims isn't going to work, and might even be kind of cruel. He just can't do it.

Everyone knows there's not going to be an earthquake, and nobody is going to score skeptic points by arguing with a mentally ill person.

Yeah, but that's why I said that pinning him down on that claim wouldn't work.
Trying to get someone whose illness makes them irrational to be rational about something is just going to be frustrating for both sides.

There's very little to "pin down". I see no reason why he should be incapable of giving me a yes or no answer to my questions above.

As it is, the answer is already basically out there, given that he's predicting deaths as a result of this earthquake, which strongly implies 6 or more on the Richter scale.

OK. You include your SSA DB findings from 2013 or whenever it was. You claim to have been found to be disabled. So why are you pursuing employment if you claim to be disabled? Was SSA changing/questioning your status or something? I can't figure out how a benefit program from a government agency is relevant to your status as Messenger of God or what have you.

BTW, Christians are not supposed to swear oaths (James 5:12, Matthew 5:33-37). 'For whatever is more than these (yes or no) is from the Evil One'.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but JBReyes777 isn't saying there will be an earthquake. He's saying the continent of Africa will "Shake". That could mean any number of things.

JBReyes777, could you clarify exactly what you mean by "shake".

I'm also wondering if you've actually let the Vatican know, because I don't think anyone there reads these forums.

A friend of mine went to work for Bechtel when he retired from civil service. I get the impression that he's comfortable between his retirement and salary but I don't think they pay the kind of money you have in mind. Maybe if you lowered your salary expectations in exchange for working at one of their locations with a lower cost of living. He's near Yakima, Washington and says his dollar goes a long way there.

Now, what is it that you desire to know? Don't hide behind HIPPA.

If you're not interested, then why are you posting?
Again, the award is because the administrative law judge agreed that you believe you are hearing the voice of a god. You did not perjure yourself because you believe that the voice is that of a god and in your understanding, you told the truth. That in no way means the voices you are hearing are from a god. The voices you are hearing are the result of a medically treatable condition.

I understand that it can be disappointing to no longer be "special" and hear voices from a god. A trained therapist can help you work through that. You appear to have access to mental health care. You should try to see if they can get you an appointment.

According to the medical community, hearing voices is a sign of mental illness, agreed?

According to the teachings of the Holy Roman Catholic Faith, hearing voices aka LOCUTION, is a sign of the gift from God, as is, the apparitions of Fatima, Garabandal and Medjugorje, and that the wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ, known as, the Stigmata, amen.

Who are you to believe? The medical community or God?

Your free will to choose. God’s precious gift to mankind, amen.

Yeah, I think I'll stick with the doctors.

At least they're not fiction.

I think people diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder are going to choose the 'god' option more often than the average person.
And they can't really be blamed, because their disorder makes them unable to tell what's real.

Here's a guy giving his appreciation of God's precious gifts. Like the smorgasbord aptly lain at their table. Amen.

This scene in the movie is great and funny. Well, that's my thought anyway.

JBReyes777, would you agree, as per my previous post on the subject, that you're talking about an earthquake of at least 6.0 magnitude?
