>Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The Defender of the Faith is too busy ordering Wiltshire Constabulary to crush John the Baptist Wally's, Jesus Christ Wally's and their Travelling Miners Wallies' skulls in with HM truncheons at Beanfield-White Horse Massacres (for continuing that "Defender of the Faith's crush the Creator's Gold Mishkan with Helestone Programme") than to order unearthing them. Reread the Katy Griffin article Donna Stone. NT and EH do not care about the deteriorated concrete below Helestone damaging those Gold Tabernacle relics or the Stone's 27 degrees leaning, HM's programme promotes that. The deteriorated concrete of the lintels and a restruck Silver Coin having the Defender of the Faith's portrait on it are what NT and EH care about. G-D

she being the 'new herod antipas' (decapitated john the baptist) and the 'new pontius pilate' (crucified jesus christ) should catapult her legacy for millennia after a future generation inevitably exhumes the mishkan she crushed with heel stone. and they will have her coin portrait to boot!

Their (Johnny B's and Jeebus C's) expert Miners under "Heelstone Tabernacle Extraction Contract" by the Owner of Stonehenge (G-D himself) ALL Travelling legally (Right of Ingress and Egress) to Heel Stone for excavating Tabernacle of G-D thereby Saving it from Further damage (protective Bluestone Concrete deteriorated) by that Defender of the Faith's crushing Ark of the Covenant programme (Official name above), Would have had my Gold Tabernacle exhumed lickety-split (Being expert Miners); HOWEVER: that Now infamous Legacy of HM would have suffered and not endured for millennia without Their untimely 1985 deaths.
