Did you ever have one of those days where it seems like you slept through some sort of earth changing event only to wake up and have everything seem different? That is what happened to us last Friday.

My wife and I spent most of the day around the house, just laying around and resting. About mid afternoon we realized that we never had lunch so we decided to visit a Thai restaurant about half an hour away. The restaurant is located in Harrisburg, Oregon. Personally, I have never liked Harrisburg. It has been rumored that in or around Harrisburg there is a large Wiccan concentration. Just driving through the town one feels the spiritual oppression. Add to that, that there is a large church there that strongly believes in “Replacement Theology,” and it makes for one strange place.

So we got to Harrisburg and found the Thai restaurant. There wasn’t enough room to park in front of the establishment so I decided to park about 75 feet back, in front of a house. The people of the house were sitting in the front yard. I’m not used to driving my wife’s little Honda so I brushed the curb with the tires and placed the transmission in neutral while I vented to myself about distances and such. I noticed the woman in the front yard approaching our car like she thought that we were going to park in front of her driveway, but when she saw that we were just making an adjustment she changed course and walked across the street. As we exited the car the homeowner’s three dogs barked and my wife remarked that it was okay, meaning that she wasn’t offended. The jerk who lived in the home answered, “no, it’s not okay because I don’t want my dogs on the sidewalk.” I mumbled, “ever heard of leashes?” I guess that he didn’t hear it. My wife felt the need to correct him about her intentions but I grabbed her hand and redirected her in the direction of the restaurant. I told her that talking to people like him was a waste of time, that he was just an ass and he wouldn’t understand. So we headed into the restaurant only to be greeted by a hostile waitress who didn’t speak English well. She told us to sit anywhere but when we sat she acted like she didn’t like where we chose to sit. She gave us menu’s and mumbled something as she walked away. She came back to take our order. My wife and I both like something called Pad Thai, so I ordered two Pad Thai’s telling the waitress that my wife didn’t want any spice and that I would have a 1 star, meaning just a little bit of hot. She mocked me, saying that 1 star is basically nothing. I let it slide but told my wife that the woman had just forfeited her tip. We ate and left.

My wife didn’t want to walk back to the car so I agreed to pick her up closer to the restaurant. As I got to the car I heard the jerk and his wife arguing about something and figured that these two were obviously classic white trash. My wife and I are known to like dessert after a meal so we went to a place called Dari Mart. They have very good ice cream there. Some woman in a very large car was in front of us driving very slow. I said to my wife, “I hope she’s not going to Dari Mart, but guess what, she was. There were two cars to the right and this woman parked leaving one spot between her and those two cars. I pulled the Honda into that spot. While I had the door open and was getting out to exit the car the lady in the big car started to pull back out of her spot. I closed the door so that we wouldn’t have an incident and got out of the car, only to realize that the woman had parked over two spots from me.

Things were starting to get to me and now that I’m a codgy old man I express my feelings very easy and without regard to hurting feelings of people who piss me off. So I got into the store ice cream line. I asked the woman what was wrong with people in her town that day. I told her about the Thai restaurant and the guy next door and then I told her that the small town BS is exactly why I didn’t ever consider moving to Harrisburg. Well, the real reason was and is that an old boss who abused me because of my Jewish ancestry lives in that town and attends the church I mentioned earlier. So I thumb pointed to the woman from the big car who was waddling toward the front door and said, “don’t even get me started on that one.” I have to give credit to the woman working behind the counter. She agreed with me for the most part and she made me laugh. I asked her if she ever saw “Invasion of The Body Snatchers?” I said that people in her town were acting like the people after their human doppelgangers had been absorbed. She gave me the ice cream, I left the store and sat in the car with my wife where we ate our ice cream. So, about four spoonsful into my ice cream this woman (or a reasonable facsimile) walked from around the corner. I looked at my wife and remarked, “rode hard and put away wet.” She had a glaze over her eyes. She was either on illicit drugs or she was mentally ill. She entered the store for all of five seconds and then came right back out, heading toward our car. I locked the doors right away. She walked past us and then walked down the street. I was now finished with my ice cream and asked my wife if she was okay if I drove and got us out of this episode of The Outer Limits, and/or Twilight Zone combination. 

So we arrived home and took a little snooze. Early in the evening, I suggested that perhaps we should head over to Sweet Home, to Safeway to get meat for the barbecue that we were putting on the next day. We hopped in the car and drove to Safeway Market. We were going to get out of the car when we noticed an older woman in a van that was trying to back out of her spot. As she backed out I noticed that she was going to hit a pickup truck that was behind her. Thank goodness the driver of the truck was in the truck. He backed up to make room for the old woman who would hit his truck if he hadn’t been there. My wife and I looked at each other as if to ask the question if the Body Snatcher thing occurred in Sweet Home too. As we talked a gentleman in a gold colored Mercedes pulled into the spot next to us but facing out. He got out of his car and went into the store. As we talked about things my wife noticed that the Mercedes started to move forward. I told her that there was no way I was going to try to stop it. It rolled into an empty handicapped spot. I told my wife that it would be fun to call the police to report a car without disabled tags parked in a handicapped spot, but we didn’t do it. We went into the store and we went up to the service desk to have the man paged so that he could move his car. My guess was that it was a manual transmission and the guy forgot to set the brake. He was paged twice but never came to the service desk. We looked for him in the store but never found him.

We found all that we needed for the next day and got into the express line. I noticed an old lady in front of me and she seemed to be waiting for someone. That, someone, was another woman that looked like she was ridden hard and put away wet. There are a lot of meth users and former meth users in this part of Oregon. So I politely asked the younger woman if she would like to get in front of us to join her mother. She never answered but I moved out of the way anyway. She had two kids with her, one who was walking and the other in the basket. As they walked by the little narcissist in the basket said, “yeah, just get out of the way.” I looked at him and told him that he was very rude. We got into the next line where we were attended to by a very nice young woman. I told her all about Harrisburg, the self-driving car and how rude that kid had been just a minute earlier. She remarked that it had been a strange day for her. As we walked away I told her to beware of the Pod People. She laughed.

So, the next day I had to drive back to Sweet Home to get a couple of other things that we needed for that night. I prayed that things would be okay because the day before really had me aggravated. I picked up my three items and got into the fast serve aisle, behind a very nice older lady. As I stood there I heard someone say, “Look out, I really need to get in here.” I turned to find that it was the Pepsi guy who wanted to stock up one of the coolers that they keep at the end of each aisle. I didn’t like his rude behavior so I answered him in German, saying “ya vol Mein Herr,” in what must have been a little loud because people looked. The old lady noticed that I was upset. I told her that I was so tired of the younger people that have absolutely no social decorum, that they’re rude and that they’re only out for themselves, then I said, “It’s that damn Millennial Generation, self-centered and narcissistic.” The guy stood there and heard everything, but I really didn’t care. The reason why people get away with bad behavior is that nobody ever calls them out on it. I hope that the Pepsi guy went home that night and reflected on how much of an ass he had been. Maybe it will cause him to realize that he needs to change. 

One more thing to reflect on is road safety, or the lack thereof these days. On three separate occasions, my wife and I together in either her car or my truck have almost been run off the road by people passing cars coming from the opposite direction. One woman decided that she would pass five or six cars causing me to flash my brights at her during the day to get her attention. It was a pretty close call. The real gem, however, happened this last Tuesday when we were heading to the store. We have to drive through a little town called Holley on our way to Sweet Home. The speed limit there is 45 mph and it is clearly a two lane road (one each way) but for some reason some old woman decided that our land was a turn lane, almost forcing us off the road. I’ve commented on Facebook that it seems that almost every day we read about a fatal accident on one of the small highways or on Interstate 5 here in Oregon. A couple of years ago we would read about such things maybe once a month or possibly every two weeks, but now it’s every day, and sometimes there is more than one accident. What has changed in the past two years? The answer is simple, marijuana use was legalized. The idiots that used to be afraid to drive “high” now think that it is a right and it is taking a terrible toll. Add to that that one out of every three drivers that we have seen on I-5 are texting as they pass us or we pass them. AND, add to that that there are far too many truckers texting and talking on cell phones while driving. It’s a zoo on the roads in Oregon.

Society has failed the tensile test. You’ve probably watched on television a documentary where they show stress tests on different materials. They will either press on or stretch materials to see what is called tensile strength. Basically, they see how many pounds of pressure or pounds of pull can be exerted on a material before it fails. Well, folks, society has finally come to the point where the metal of society has torn apart because it has been pulled too far. There are laws to keep things from being stretched too far but laws are only as good as the people who enforce the laws and those who prosecute the law breakers. We live in a totally lawless society, much worse than the the lawless days of the 19th Century. It’s time that people that it’s okay to call out the pod people to let them know that their activities will not be tolerated. If you’re not going to do it for yourself, then do it for your kids and grandkids. It might look like a battle that cannot be won, but if you educate one person that one person could influence many others. To quote some unknown person, “it’s time to put up or shut-up.” If you care then do something. If you don’t care, or are a coward then don’t say that you weren’t warned while things were fixable.

Over the period of the past year or two I’ve watched as people that I’ve known and respected have just become people that I just don’t know anymore. Granted, I haven’t known these people very well as I have met them through internet connections and such; but i have read their work and talked to them in voice forums and some even on the phone and their words and work has told me that Yahweh is directing them to some degree.

I think that it’s important to remember that trees don’t just spring into large fruit bearing trees overnight nor does fruit just appear matured upon a tree in a day or two. Trees can take years to grow to mature status and fruit starts out as a tiny flower that accepts the pollen from a tree of like kind and only after botanical sexual union between the two can the process of making the fruit start. If a tree does spring up as a grown tree overnight then it means that it has been placed there mature. While this sometimes works it takes the right conditions and is best done during the winter when the tree is dormant. Mankind has become pretty good at doing this, however it doesn’t always work for a variety of different reasons. The thing is that when this is done, it is not natural and has the possibility of falure; much more than when a small sapling or a seed result in the tree.

The internet is a wonderful medium. I have used it for a number of years and through it quite a few people have come to faith in Yeshua. I became a minister of the Gospel of Yeshua when computers were only available to the rich. Yes, I used to have to read the paper Bible, use a book concordance and hand write or type things that I wanted to share with other people. If I wanted to share it with many people I would have to go down to the corner market and pray that their Xerox machine had fresh toner and lots of paper and I would have to bring a pocketful of change to pay for the copies. And yes, in even earlier days I utilized carbon paper.

The thing is that back then it wasn’t as easy to get information out to people. A lot of work had to be done to share anything. An article couldn’t be written and disseminated in one day, it took a few days. During that time it gave people a period where Yahweh could talk to us about what we wrote; whether He wanted us to add something or subtract something and whether what we wrote was too harsh or not strong enough. In essence, Yeshua was our “send button.” However nowadays things are much different; we can publish instantly and one has to wonder if that is such a good idea. I’ll be honest with you and tell you that this very thing has turned around and bitten me in the hindquarters before. I’ve had to apologize to a few people about things that I sent out in haste. Hopefully that lesson has been learned.

Now I know that many of you will agree with me that apologizing is not fun. For some, it is unpleasant because they got caught doing something wrong and the only time they will apologize is when they are caught. For others, and hopefully I fall into this category; we apologize first because we have offended Yeshua, second, because we have offended a person and third because we know that we could have done better and handled things in a more godly manner. So in essence the wrong was offending Yahweh, our neighbor and ourselves; these three persons being mentioned in the Golden Rule.

Receiving a rebuke is often thought of as being harsh; but it is actually a blessing. We know that we should be happy when Yahweh rebukes us because:

If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:7-11

There is more that goes with all of this that we must explore. We have to realize that prophets, teachers, pastors and other offices that Yahweh bestows upon a person just don’t come automatically. By that I mean that there is no McDonalds approach to ministry. In the Israeli priesthood the disciple would spend years in a servant position before they could be inducted into the priesthood. Even though there were separate lines, like the Kohanim and the Levites, each had to serve and learn before they could minister unto Yahweh. The Rabbinical (teaching) position was no different. Many years of schooling, apprentiship and serving were required before one could be called a rabbi. The same thing applied to the prophets and the scribes. We know from Biblical times that a man was not allowed to start any sort of ministerial service until after they reached the age of 30. Why that age do you suppose? Well, simply put, men do not fully mature (I mean if they’re going to mature at all) until around the age of thirty. Science has even given credence to this, stating that a man’s brain does not fully mature until his late twenties or around 30. Search for it yourself; these things are easy to find.

Some would say that with the coming of Yeshua that whole thing changed. After all there is no more established priesthood and scribes are a thing of the past because all canon is written. They would say that the Ruach Ha Kodesh could make a person credible right after salvation. Well, let’s look at Yeshua’s time and see what happened then because it should apply to what should be happening now. Now, let’s look at Yeshua himself. Most agree that his ministry started at the age of 30 and that he was crucified at the age of 33. Our very own Lord abided by the set norm. It is agreed amongst most scholars that all of Yeshua’s disciples, except for maybe John the Younger were at least 30 years old, and even if they were in their late twenties when they started with Yeshua, they were the approved age when Yeshua commissioned them just before he ascended into heaven. So most agree that thirty and above is the accepted age for ministry to begin.

But before we move on, let’s examine one more aspect of this whole thing. It is around the age thirty that a man starts to mellow as well as mature. Before that age men are cocky, immature and they’re all trying to vie for top-dog status amongst themselves and amongst the women that they find appealing. Do you know why the military has a cutoff age for induction? Well, it does have something to do with physical restrictions that occur as a man starts to age, but there are other factors. Another important reason is that young men haven’t developed the ability to think correctly and reason effectively. A sergeant can tell a young man to run through a mine field and chances are that he’ll do it, not because of valor, but because he wants to prove to his buddies that he’s cool and brave. Ask a thirty year old man to do the same thing and he’s going to tell the sergeant a hundred different reasons why it is a bad idea. It is because the older man has lived longer and seen things happen that causes him to make deductions that make common sense. He’ll deduce that finding a way around the field, or crawling ever so slowly through it while marking the mines will be better for everyone, including himself.

And finally, an older man and/or woman tends to know who he is in his relationship with Yahweh. They’ve had more life’s experience; they know better how to handle people and situations, and because they’re a bit more mellowed they know how to listen to Yahweh’s voice better. They’ve made life’s tough decisions; they’ve gotten married, had two or more children and they’re more stable in their employment. Younger people are still trying to find themselves and make the decisions that the older people have already made and the decisions that they are trying to make can often cloud their thinking. I was saved by grace when I was twenty years old and I’ll be the first to admit that although I held some less important ministry duties; I was always a helper or an assistant of some sort. I thank Yahweh that this was the case because I know that when I was in my twenties I was praying and trying to find what Yahweh had for me and my life. Had I tried to strike out on my own I would have messed up my own life and the lives of others. And like I just said, I would have been setting out ON MY OWN, and not necessarily in Yahweh’s scheme of things.

When we look at the disciples of Yeshua, one of the things that we notice is that they were not fully commissioned to go out until after Yeshua had ascended to heaven. Sure, there were short periods of time when he would send them out to offer the Gospel, but he sent them out two by two and they always came back to their master. They were disciples until Yeshua gave him the commission to go into all the world to spread the Good News. The important thing about this is that they were disciples for three years. We have to realize that Yahweh is a God of Order and that He has prescribed methods of doing things where ministry is concerned. All of the prophets, scribes, priests, Levites and Disciples all sat under authority and were taught by that authority, and it was for at least the minimum of three years. Has Yahweh changed? I think not. Scripture says that Yeshua Ha Mashiach is the same yesterday, today and forever. Scripture says that God changes not, but man changes. Maybe part of the mess that the church is in today is because so many refuse to sit under authority and they rush to the Church of McDonald’s takeout window. Yahweh never meant for it to be this way. Many who have been discipled the correct way know this to be true; we’ve witnessed it firsthand and have seen the harm that has been done by fast-food ministry. I’m sure that many of you who are reading this will agree too.

Have you ever seen a puffer fish? You can find them in just about every ocean. They are strange looking to begin with but all in all they are just another fish. As a defense mechanism they are able to puff themselves up like a large spiny balloon. They try to make themselves look bigger than they really are in order to fend off predators and they later deflate when the danger has passed. The key words here are puffed up and deception. These two things are talked about in scripture to great extent, and we are warned about them time and time again in the Bible’s pages.

The Bible talks about people who are puffed up; who are too big for their own boots, so to speak:

Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. 1 Corinthians 4:18-20

And:

Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. Colossians 2:18-19

Now what I’m about to write might offend some, and if it does then perhaps those offended need to go into prayer about what their heart is like. Those who know that their hearts are pure and their intentions are in obedience to Yahweh will not be offended. It almost appears that when a person gets a college degree that a certain spirit of pride could attach itself to that person. The higher the degree, the stronger the attachment. Let me give you a few examples.

Just yesterday I was reading a post in Facebook. I go there a lot because you can get the real feeling for what people are thinking because there seems to be a certain anonymity to the site; even though you give people most of your information anyway. So, someone had a link on their thread that led to a newspaper article where some Catholic theologian speculates that if ET did come to earth they should be given every courtesy, even offering them Yeshua’s Communion at a service. Well, knowing that these things are fallen angels I know that they can take Communion all they want and all they will be doing is taking condemnation unto themselves; just like Scripture says regarding taking the emblems “unworthily.” So I decided to scroll down to see what comments might be at the bottom because everyone has to have a voice these days even if they don’t have any authoritative reason to have a voice. Sure enough, the second person who posted started off his post by stating that he has a “masters degree in divinity” and that he sees nothing in scripture that would negate there being intelligent life in the universe. I guess he hasn’t read his Bible seriously because if one does a study, the Bible has plenty to say to contradict what this man said. Simply put, you can have all of those letters behind your name, but still be an ignorant fool. To me, and to anyone else that knows the truth about the whole UFO and alien abduction phenomenon, what this guy was really saying is, “Hi, I’m highly educated yet I know nothing about what I am talking about.”

Recently I ran into another person who is well educated and has a master’s degree in one of the sciences. This person is smart as a whip and I was really marveled by their intelligence in several different areas. They are a nice person and there is no doubt that they love Yeshua and their salvation is irrefutable. This person had also been through a lot in their lifetime; more than you or I could probably handle without going crazy; yet they are quite sane. During a long time of solitude they read the Bible and did Bible studies that dealt mainly with the area of their life that they were going through. They picked up a lot of knowledge for sure; but the drawback was that they thought that the knowledge that they attained from their study was was applicable in not just their situation, but in all situations and they sort of took on the air that if you didn’t believe the way that they did, you were not as esteemed in the area of Biblical learning as they were; even to the point of how a person should pray; if you didn’t agree with their way of doing it, you were stupid; and if you tried to voice your opinion or defend your stance they belittled you and they were masterful at taking anything that I said and jumbling it around to make them look like a victim when all I was trying to do was express my point of view.

Both of these people were puffed up; they are puffer fish. They both used their educational status as a defense mechanism and as a tool to establish right off the bat that if you differed in opinion with them you cannot be right; after all, you’re not as educated as they are. In many ways they are quite intelligent; but in that intelligence they forgot the simplest of Yeshua’s commandments; that being that the greatest amongst you must be servant to the least. The pride that comes with their titles caused both of them to state facts with authority, but where did that authority come from? Did they make Godly statements or did they make statements from the flesh. The answer is quite evident.

We are told that Yeshua went through all of the temptations that we have or will go through. We can find a lot of comfort in that. Yeshua never went to a seminary or rabbinical school nor did he study under the priesthood. I’m sure that he had the same education that every young Jewish boy had at that time; lessons in a Jewish school like one can find in any big city around the world and what He was able to glean from the elders of the synagogue. It is possible that Yeshua attended a minimum of schooling because he followed in the footsteps of his stepfather Yosef and became a carpenter. We see an interesting story unfold when Yeshua went back to Nazareth to see his family, and how He was spurned because He didn’t have letters behind his name either:

And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. Mark 6:1-4

So what the elders were saying to Yeshua is something like this: “Wow, the stuff that you are telling us is wonderful and amazing, but we know you. We know that you are just a carpenter, that your mother is Miriam and that she’s just a plain old woman here in our section of town. Oh, and your brothers Ya’akov, Yosef, Yehuda and Shimon are all with us and boy are they a handful. So, given your family and the fact that you never had a formal education, where do you get off telling us what is right and what is wrong? Who gave you any authority; we don’t recognize you!” Sound familiar?

What they didn’t take into account; and possibly they didn’t know; was that Yeshua was anointed with the Ruach Ha Kodesh; that along with the fact that He is God Incarnate gave him all of the authority that he needed. That very same Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) is given to every believer who humbly comes to faith in Yeshua through being born again in the Ruach Ha Kodesh. From the greatest to the least, if your heart is right with Yahweh and your living a life for Him then you are endowed with the same Ruach that Yeshua had. Yeshua said that when the Ruach Ha Kodesh came (speak of at Pentecost the first time) that He would teach Yeshua’s believers ALL THINGS; and He has been doing that from the first Pentecost and right up to this day.

What do we know from scripture about the character of the person that Yahweh can use for His purposes? What does scripture say about the true servant of Yahweh?

  1. Broken and contrite.
  2. Sold out to Yahweh and Yahweh alone.
  3. Obedient
  4. Humility
  5. Attitude of a servant
  6. Circumspect
  7. Loving Yahweh and others more than himself or herself

These are the things that Yahweh is looking for in those who He can use for His purposes. He cannot and will not use puffer fish; those who are puffed up in their own spiritual pride and status and He certainly will not use someone who touts their credentials at the beginning of an oratory or a written word. These things the Gentiles seek after, so to speak.

I have good news for those of you who come up against puffer fish. Their works will not stand when all of our works are judged. These things are referred to by Yeshua as wood, hay and stubble; and they all will burn up in an unquenchable fire. Sometimes we come upon these wonderful educated types and it is a natural inclination to feel stupid, unworthy or just plain foolish. Well are you ready for this? Yahweh can use the foolish way easier than he can use the proud and wise, and here is the proof:

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 1 Peter 5:5

And:

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:  That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:23-27

You see, we have to get out of the habit of caring what the world things, or what those who consider themselves more intelligent that we are; what they care about. In the scripture above, Yahweh is not calling us foolish; but he is saying that the world might think that we’re foolish; but to Him we are invaluable. To Yahweh, a yielded heart toward Him is worth more than all of the wisdom of this world.

If you happen to be one of those puffer fish I pray that you would come to Yahweh in humility and ask His forgiveness. There is no sin that is stronger than His love; he’ll welcome you back with open arms. If you’ve found offense by what has been written here then you have bigger fish to fry. On the last day there will be only two types of people; those who bend their knee willingly, and those who will have to bow their knee begrudgingly, but will bend their knee out of reverence to the Lamb of Yahweh. I hope and pray that everyone reading this will be in the first category. Shalom in Yeshua!

I was praying about what to write in this entry of Bai-Ya-Mim and Yahweh brought my cousin Larry to mind. He showed me how the story of Larry’s life has meaning for Yeshua’s Church and those who think that the great taking away (Harpazo) is so very near. Will we soon be snatched away in what some call the “Rapture,” or is there something that will keep that thing from happening anytime in the near future. I know that if Larry was here to consult about using his life for this lesson he would agree that it is a well needed lesson that the Church at large needs to learn. So Larry, now I will present your life in an encapsulated story and I’ll let Yahweh use your life as the illustration that everyone needs to hear.

Larry in 1967 when he was ten years old

As many of you know I grew up in Bergen County, New Jersey. East Rutherford was a small town with big town problems. Located only five miles due west of Manhattan Island, New York meant that the problems of the big city could not be avoided in our little town.

My dad was one of three brothers; the youngest in hierarchy which is a bad mark in an Italian American family and being born a little over a year after the Great Depression started didn’t help him either; but these things made him tough. The next in line was my uncle John; a wonderful and gregarious man whom I often looked up to. Although time has tamed him he once was a hellion that liked the best of everything; big cars, big houses and he could always be found in a bar buying drinks for several of his friends.

John married Lois in the early 1950’s and in 1957 Lois gave birth to my cousin Larry. As fate would have it, Larry would be their only child; Lois having lost her first baby in a miscarriage. We all lived very close like many Italian families do. My grandfather built a house on a little side street in East Rutherford and above a row of eight or nine garages he built two apartments; one for Uncle John and his family and one for my dad and his family. Lois was a strange bird, you couldn’t tell what her mood was. One day she would like you and the next day she would loathe you. She was probably bi-polar but little was known about those things back then; people like her we just labeled as being moody.

Larry and I were best friends as well as cousins. When his mom was in a good mood we were allowed to play together and other times she would yell at Larry for being in my company. One thing was for certain, Lois didn’t like my mother and although we could never figure out why that was, people just accepted it as one of her quirks and my mom learned to live with it.

Both John and my dad were plumbers and work was pretty plentiful back then so our families lived quite well. We didn’t lack for anything except for times when my dad was out of work, but looking back Yahweh always fed us and clothed us. If any of us was privileged more it was Larry. He had just about every toy he ever wanted and if he did do anything bad his mother would reprimand him; but his dad would countermand her correction and heap blessings on Larry. In a nutshell, Larry was spoiled.

In the late 1960’s my parents saw how the neighborhood was declining and my folks decided to buy a home in what people in New Jersey call, “down the shore.” They bought a nice home for less than twenty thousand dollars, brand spanking new and it was only about three miles from the seaside attractions. The name of the town was Toms River; and we loved it there. The air was clean; no more smelling the factories and refineries of North Jersey. The water was clean and pure and the climate was a little less intense in the winter than the winters in North Jersey.

The bad part about moving was that I was moving away from Larry. Sure, I had other friends, but Larry was like a brother, and I was leaving my brother behind. He did come to visit from time to time; sometimes staying for a couple of weeks during the summer, but it was not the same. As Larry grew he met more friends and started to hang around with people that liked to party. They would steal liquor from their parents or acquire it by other means and then they would find the home of someone whose parents were gone for the weekend or longer.

In the early seventies my parents started to have marital trouble and they finally divorced. Dad moved back up to North Jersey and mom, my sister and I stayed in Toms River. It was different not having dad around; I felt like a minority; one guy in a house with two females and the bathroom was pink in our little apartment; god I hate that color. After a year or two my mom met a gentlemen named Bill. He was a nice guy but was a little too much of an authoritarian for me and besides I didn’t want some other guy playing the father role for me; so after a lot of nagging it was agreed that I would go to live with my dad. This was great because I would be hanging round with Larry again.

It was good to be around my cousin again. I did notice however that he had changed a bit. He was becoming more defiant toward his mother and would even laugh at her when she would try to correct him. I knew that this was bad behavior, but Lois was a nutcase I surmised and Larry was just rebelling against a crazy woman. I would later realize that my assertion was wrong, very wrong. Larry’s dad bought a large motor-home and parked it on my grandfather’s property. It became the party place for everyone to get wasted in. We’d draw the curtains and nobody knew that we were in there; life was perfect, so to speak from a 1970’s teenager’s point of view.

Larry and I got to spend a year hanging out together and then the time came for dad and I to move to California. Dad’s oldest brother Warren lived there as well as his mom and dad plus dad heard that work was booming out west so in May of 1974 we packed up the car and started our drive. I didn’t hear much from Larry while in California for the first three or four years. He did come out one year with the intent of moving west with his parents, but his mom didn’t like California so they all moved back to New Jersey. In 1977 I graduated High School in Vacaville, California and took various jobs but there really wasn’t any work to start getting serious about. Landing a job working for some Texans who were working an electrical shutdown at a refinery helped me to make some money and when the job ended I took my dad’s advice and drove back to New Jersey in the summer of 1978 where I landed a job working for a small electrical contractor.

This is a picture of Larry in his partying days – He’s the one in blue shirt

I got hooked up with Larry again, which was pretty easy seeing that I was staying with him and his parents. Larry had changed over those years. He had graduated from liquor to marijuana and some of the harder drugs; some quite dangerous, like angel’s dust and cocaine. It wasn’t long before I learned that Larry was dealing dope but it didn’t bother me; no, as a matter of fact I liked his side job because he’d always come home with free “samples” so I really never had to pay to get high. Larry and his mother barely talked because he saw her as the authoritarian, but he loved his dad who always threw money at him. Who could blame my uncle; this was his only child; his firstborn and only son. It’s too bad that Larry didn’t listen more to his mother; it could have kept him from a lot of grief.

Spring had arrived in 1979 and party season started again too. Larry had some people over one night when his folks were gone for the weekend and they had barely left when the kids came over and the mirrors came out on the table. Larry brought me into the kitchen where there were two lines of white power on a mirror. He told me that they were coke so I wasted no time snorting it up my nostrils. This was different though, it burned badly and then I started to feel bad. I sat in my uncle’s favorite leather recliner and we all settled in to watch Saturday Night Live on television. After a short while I realized that I had an incredible urge to urinate but I felt paralyzed. I could not talk nor could I move out of the chair to use the restroom. I remember praying that I wouldn’t urinate in uncle John’s chair. After a while I was able to get up and stumble into the bathroom where I completed my long overdue chore. I looked into the mirror and beheld myself, looking like I was dead; pale white with dark black rings around my eyes; I was mortified. I knew that I had to make a big life’s change.

It was around this time that we received a phone call early one morning. I answered the phone and it was the police in a town called Fairfield, New Jersey. They were calling to tell us that Larry was in jail; he had been arrested with a lot of “controlled substances” in his possession. I woke my uncle up and my aunt woke up too. John got on the phone and talked to the police and said that he’d be right there to bail Larry out. Lois became very angry. She yelled at John to leave Larry in jail, suggesting that it would teach him a lesson and get him straight. John didn’t listen though, so I went with him to Fairfield to get Larry out of jail.

It was also at this time that I was told by my uncle (a different uncle) that the narcotics squad was following me around. I was scared out of my wits and when I explained these things to Larry he just dismissed it. He found an apartment above a bar where we could move and we’d be away from the restraint of parental authority. We could party all the time he said. This bothered me; I had to get away. Fortunately my maternal grandmother lived the next block over and when I explained to her everything that was going on she agreed to let me live there. This angered Larry a lot; he felt betrayed. I was going to share the rent in this new apartment and my leaving put him in a bind. Larry’s dad picked up the slack and helped Larry with the rent that I would not be paying. Larry was pulled out of a mess again.

Meanwhile, my dad got wind of what had gone on and he sent me some money so that I could drive back to California but on one condition; that I bring my sister with me when I came there. That is another interesting story that I won’t elaborate on here. I was in California about two months and ran into this guy named Art who always told me about Yeshua throughout the years; how I could get my life straightened out and such. In July of 1979 I gave in and asked Yeshua into my life and repented of my sins.

About two years later Larry came west for a visit; driving his Chevy Blazer; the truck his dad brought for him. I can remember so vividly on day when we were driving to Fairfield, California to visit another cousin I told Larry about my new faith. Larry looked at me with what I can only describe as a demonic glare and swore “I will never ever do that. I don’t need Jesus.” This bothered me because I loved Larry like a brother and wanted him to have what I had with Yeshua. I prayed even right then that Yeshua would forgive Larry and would begin to show him just how much he needed Jesus.

Late that summer Larry went back to New Jersey and we lost touch for a few years. One year in the late eighties he did come back to visit but he was a mess. His dad sent him to California to get him away from the bad influences in New Jersey but that didn’t work. All Larry wanted to do was get high and although some of my relatives liked that too, Larry took it to excess and it caused him to come into disfavor with many in the family. My apartments wouldn’t allow visitors for more than two weeks so I had to ask Larry to leave after that time. He went to live with another relative and was asked to leave after he was caught teaching my other cousin’s children how to shoplift from the local mini-mart. So, Larry went back to New Jersey. There were rumors that he just continued to get into trouble and I heard that he even spent a couple of years in Rahway Prison. In the mid nineties I heard from my grandmother (maternal) who had run into Larry who was crying while sitting on the front step of some building. I never stopped praying for Larry, and that prayer payed off.

In 1999 my dad went into the hospital for what was supposed to be a successful surgery and after three months in intensive care Yeshua took him to Paradise. Dad’s desire was to be cremated so I made those arrangements. Dad had always said that he wanted to go one more time to a lake where he taught me how to fish; Lake Wawayanda in New Jersey. I felt led to bring his ashes there so that he could be in his favorite place. I had called Larry to let him know that dad had passed and Larry told me that I could stay with him while I was there. I was sort of apprehensive about this given Larry’s past, but my Uncle John had assured me that Larry was on the mend and that he had changed. Hmmm, I wondered how that happened.

This was Larry when he was on the mend.

When I got to New Jersey I just drove around the old haunts until Larry got home from work. Larry greeted me with a big hug. He had changed so much. You could see how the drug abuse and his lifestyle had aged him so much. He had scars on his face from what must have been knife fights; but he was overweight, which was good because it meant he was off of the drugs. Larry told me about his girlfriend named Marcia who was asleep in the other room. He said that she had Lupus and that she was having a flare-up during that time. She came out later and we talked. I found out that she was a born again Christian that was just coming back from a backslidden state; she was on the  mend too. Later that week, when she and I were alone she told me how she had been witnessing to Larry about Yeshua and how he was responding favorably. He hadn’t made any decisions yet, but he was listening. When it came time for me to return to California I assured Larry that we would not fall out of touch again, and I told Marcia that I would be praying for her and thanked her for loving Larry and for letting Yeshua work through her.

Well to progress with this story in short order, let me say that the miraculous happened. I did keep in touch with Larry; calling him many times. Each time I would get Marcia on the phone to get a progress report, and sometimes she would call me to tell me of more wonderful things that were going on. One day we talked and she told me that Larry had started to pray with her every night. He was acknowledging prayer and that there was a God who answered prayer. A few months later Marcia told me that Larry was reading his Bible. Then, a couple of months later Marcia told me that Larry had asked Yeshua into his heart. In her excited words, “well guess what, you’re cousin is Born Again now.” We both cried on the phone. As the months went by Larry and I shared a lot. He would call me all the time to ask me questions about the Bible, about Jesus and a whole bunch of different things.

Two or three years had gone by and Larry called me one day. He was crying and I could tell that he was very sad. He called to tell me that Marcia had died. What he had kept secret all of those years was that Marcia really had AIDS. She had been raped by three men behind the fire station in East Rutherford back in the 80’s and the HIV quickly became AIDS. She had been embarrassed all of those years and didn’t want people to know about her shaming. We cried together that day on the phone.

This is Marcia, Larry’s love and the one that led Larry to Yeshua!

Larry had nothing left in New Jersey so he decided to move down to Florida to be near his father. Uncle John bought him a mobile home in a nice park and Larry was settling into life outside of New Jersey; which isn’t easy, trust me. Larry was in bad health. It wasn’t just the years of drug abuse that racked his body; but working as a pipefitter wreaked havoc on his knees to where he had severe arthritis and was in pain most of the time. In New Jersey the doctors had placed him on Oxycodone and it relieved his pain. When he moved to Florida however the doctors were leery of having him on that drug and switched him to regular morphine which really didn’t work. This was around the time when Rush Limbaugh had been caught “doctor shopping” for narcotics and a lot of doctors were frightened about giving out powerful narcotics. Larry, still being in pain sought out another doctor who accused him of doctor shopping, and that doctor alerted other doctors about Larry; whose only guilt was wanting to be pain free. Larry suffered much under Florida doctors.

I called Larry in October of 2006. The Yankees were in the World Series playoffs and we talked about that for a little while. Larry told me that he was going to cook up some food, sit down with a couple of beers and watch the game. I got a call from my Uncle John the next day asking me when the last time I talked to Larry was. I told him that I talked to him the previous day. Uncle John started to cry and told me that he found Larry dead in his home the day before. I don’t see Larry as the sort of person who would take his own life. My speculation is that the years of drug abuse had taken their toll. My guess is that Larry took some of his morphine for the pain in his knees and with the two beers it was just too much for his fragile system to handle and his heart probably just stopped working.

Okay, so now you’re wondering why I told you the story above, right? Maybe you’re thinking that it was wonderful that Larry finally came to the truth, and that is so true. You’re probably thinking that it was terrible what he had to go through in order to come to the truth, and that is true also. The thing is that it is my unswerving belief that just as Scripture points out in so many places, we are predestined before the foundation of the forming of creation to becomes sons and daughters of Yahweh. With that in mind, people like Larry, and many of us for that matter need to be brought down to the lowest possible denominator before we finally realize that we do not have the answers, and that the only answer is a relationship with the Father, through Yeshua. We have to go through the sewer to realize that the sewer is not the place that we want to be and it is not the place that we are destined for.

Larry was given everything as a child; his mistakes were overlooked and his transgressions were never brought up. He was on a collision course with narcissism and a sociopathic personality, but Yahweh had other plans. Larry was treated like royalty by his dad and he became a spoiled brat as a child and as an adult, because he was never corrected about his actions, he became arrogant and self centered. The only person who saw it and could do something about it; his mother, was spurned by Larry and he ridiculed her and mocked her. Larry’s dad also spurned his wife, making himself look like the good guy and making her look like the cruel authoritarian. Even after his short span of years as a believer in Yeshua, Larry never came to terms with his mother and her love her for son. His end was glorious, but the majority of years of Larry’s life were tragic.

When we look at the Western Church we see the same sort of thing. Most of the people in Europe and the America’s who call themselves Born Again believers in Yeshua have had a relatively easy life. There really has been no persecution like we see in Asia or the Muslim world. We’ve had food, clothing and shelter for sure, but many if not most of us have had far above what our brothers and sisters in the rest of the world have. We’re constantly bombarded by radio, television, billboards and the internet; these things telling us that everything that we have is sub-par and that we really need what they are selling. We’ve been conditioned so much so by the wickedness of the world that we accept things that our grandparents would have found utterly atrocious and wicked.

Just tonight a friend and I were talking about such things. We were talking about about how believers have become so watered down that they accept things like Harry Potter into their homes and then just excuse it as being harmless. If I hear from one more supposed believer in Yeshua telling me how such things are just fantasy and not harmful I think I will lose my lunch right there and then. The Church has become so obsessed by “grace” that they seem to use it as a password to enter some sort of “immune” room where everything is permitted and all infractions are excused. Christians forget the words of Yeshua when he instructed people after healing them that they should “go and sin no more.”

This watering down of our faith has led to some bizarre and outlandish claims that should have alarm bells going off within the whole Christian community. Just a couple of years ago I read on the Drudge Report that there was a woman who wanted to learn pole dancing so that she could work as a dancer in strip clubs and witness to the women there. Then there was the woman who wanted to become a prostitute so that she could minister to the ladies of the night. Right here in Sacramento I heard of one woman who would steal from stores so that she could get arrested and be able to witness to the inmates at the jail. I guess she never heard of a “prison ministry.” One woman who went to my church was getting into tattoo’s and her excuse was that she wanted to witness to people with tattoos. When I asked her about a scripture that she had inked into her back she said that it helped her to witness. I asked her how many people she led to Messiah because of the tattoo and her reply was; “well, it sows a lot of seeds.” It was a cop out; the woman was a witch in our church and later left to attend to her black arts; not to mention that she became a lesbian. She didn’t let the seeds get planted into her own heart so how could she think that she could sew seeds into the ground of others.

The problem is that many people are dimming their lights so that they can “supposedly” witness to the lost. What they don’t realize is that we’re supposed to have those lights burning brightly, not put under a bushel. Dimming a light only allows more darkness, it never brings more light. This is what the Vatican has been doing for hundreds of years. They bring a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof. That is why pilgrims get bloody knees walking on their knee into a church and so many other pagan symbols are interwoven into what is supposed to be a holy and sanctified group of Christians. The Roman Catholic Church in Malaysia is experiencing persecution from the Moslems; not because of the cause of Messiah, but because they are using the name of Allah to describe the God of Abraham, Yitzak and Yaacov. Frankly, it ticks me off too, seeing that Allah is a pagan moon god and has nothing to do with Yahweh, except to being a vastly inferior polar opposite.

Those of us who live where it gets cool or cold during the winter know what I am about to say is true. Because of the cold we tend to weatherproof our homes so that the cold air cannot get in. We do such a good job that the air becomes stale. We get lulled into a sense of nasal bliss ever so slowly that we can’t smell that perhaps the garbage is stinking up the house or the dishes in the sink need attention because they smell. If someone comes in from the clean fresh air they notice it immediately. This is the problem with the Body of Mashiach today; so wallowed in her own filth that she cannot even recognize the state that she is in.

Just this month the false shepherd Joel Olsteen did what most devout believers in Yeshua would call the final straw. Mr. Olsteen had as a guest to his church Oprah Winfrey, an avowed New Ager who on her own show has cast dispersion on Messianic doctrine and has categorically stated that “there are many ways to God.” Sorry, if you call Yeshua a liar then you are a bigger liar; Yeshua said the opposite; “He is the only way.” People like Olsteen, Bentley (don’t even get me started on this schmuck), and so many others, are so blatantly filled with the antiChrist spirit that anyone with just a fraction of an ounce of discernment can see them for who they are; yet the willfully ignorant flock to them like the Germans flocked to Hitler in the 1930’s. These men are messianic in nature; meaning that they have a messianic charisma, but their fruit gives them away to anyone who has prayed for wisdom.

Now, let me ask you a question. I’m assuming that many of you are moms or dads or that you are siblings of someone. Let’s suppose that your son, or your brother were to bring home some woman that he met in a bar the previous night. Let’s say that she has tattoos, piercings, that she has a mouth that would make a sailor blush and she’s dressed like a hooker. Now let’s say that your son or brother comes in with this creature and says that this is the woman that he has fallen in love and he’s going to marry. Would anyone who has the best interest for his son or brother not raise an objection? Wouldn’t you categorically state, “man, you have to be kidding, and if you’re not, we object and do not support this decision.” You couldn’t let them live in your home because that would be technically giving your approval to this most unholy union and you probably would tell your son to move out and only come back when he gets his head straight.

Transfer this story now to the son being Yeshua and the parent being Elohim. Imagine the look on the Father’s face if Yeshua tried to present the modern Church to Him. It just could not happen. Now I know that I’m going to tick some people off pretty soon with what I am about to say, but it needs to be said. If you’ve made it this far you’re to be commended. I can assure you that EVERYONE reading this has been flirting in some way with the world or you’re given over to the world. Like scripture says, “all have sinned.” I get to talk to a lot of believers on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis and I can attest that everyone is having problems somewhere in their walk of faith and that in most cases, the wounds are self inflicted. We’re told that Yeshua died for our sins, and we know that in our hearts to be true because Yahweh said it and Yeshua proved it. But what about the things that we’re enticed to do through worldly friends, radio or television or even movies that we see. How much leaven enters in each time. Leaven is a parasite, it infests things until its host is taken over and the host finally dies.

But what about the Church in other lands; like the Moslem World and in places worldwide where believers are persecuted. The Church in those lands is thriving, growing and pure. Remember the phrase, “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop?” The people that are being persecuted do not have idle minds. They’re too busy praying for each other, holding clandestine Bible studies and Church groups and wondering if they will be alive ten minutes from now. Do you know that the Church in China has been praying for persecution to come to the Church in America? Do you know why? It is because they know that persecution brings about purity. It is the smelter’s fire that heats up the metal so that the dross can be removed; it is the metal-smith’s fire that makes the sword hard and it is the chastising that brings about holiness.

The Church in America and the Western World is like my cousin Larry was before he came to faith in Yeshua. We’ve been given everything that we need and even worse, everything that we want. Larry’s mother, although strange as she was, wanted to give Larry what he needed; his father gave him what he wanted. He spurned his mother because the attraction for more and more overtook him. His father told him that everything was acceptable and so do the false pastors and prophets of the church. Larry accepted the lie and so does the church and as the saying goes, “on the road to hell the devil will give you all green lights.” The prosperity gospel is one of those roads and there are plenty more. Who is programming your GPS?

Now here is what is going to make some you hate me; will make others write reviling letters to me and will make still others probably pray against me. How on earth could anyone think that the American or Western church be taken in a Pre-Trib rapture knowing that Yeshua’s bride looks like the woman that I mentioned above. Just like my cousin Larry had to go through twenty five years of hell before he was brought down to his lowest denominator, so too the church will have to be brought through a refiner’s fire. How dare we think that we, who have suffered nothing, are more worthy than the believers in China, Asia and Islamic nations. How dare we think that we are somehow more enlightened and more favored than our brothers and sisters in those places. No, it is not going to happen. The believers in the Americas and western nations will have to go through a purification, a cleansing so much so  that we feel blessed just getting food and shelter for one day and that Yahweh has been gracious to let us live one more day.

Do you want to know something else? Everyone wonders where the signs and miracles are. Some point to the false preachers and prophets and say, “see, they perform signs and wonders.” Well, so did Jannes and Jambres in Pharaoh’s court and so will the AntiChrist. Gold dust, gold tooth fillings, diamonds and angels feathers are not signs and wonders from Yahweh. We’ve already got the promise; the Ruach Ha Kodesh, who gives us the Holy things that we need, when we need them. But you know what else? Reports of healings, people being raised from the dead and many other things are coming from the believers that are being persecuted, raped, killed and eradicated. Gee, what’s the difference? They have nothing but their trust in Yahweh and they don’t know if they’ll be alive tomorrow or if they’ll be with Yeshua two days from now. The things of Yahweh are given to the people of Yahweh who are obedient, contrite and humble; who have crushed spirits and their only possession is their faith in Yahweh.

My God, the arrogance of people who make a claim that a wanton whore of a church will be whisked away from such things has always ticked me off. So you might hate me now, you might not want to talk to me or you might call me a pagan or a man lacking faith because I’ve said these things; but I promise you one thing; you’ll have a chance to still feel the same after the man of perdition is revealed. Don’t get confused with wrath. It is certain that we’re not appointed to Yahweh’s wrath, but believers in Yeshua have received the wrath of the world and the god of this world for two thousand years and we will continue to receive that wrath until Yahweh intervenes, says that He’s going to send His wrath against mankind and as far as I can see in Scripture, that comes at the last Trumpet in Revelation. Yeshua promised to rescue us before His wrath, but not the wrath of others.

In the mean time, while you’re frothing at me here is something that we all need to do. Yeshua told us to evangelize the world and he told us to love one another. We need to be doing those things. Secondly, we need to seek righteousness and holiness; to seek Yahweh’s face in all matters and to repent of our sins and pray for renewal. Only when the people of Yahweh have been humbled and only when they are being obedient will they be clean enough to be presented to Aveinu (the Father) as the Bride Without Spot or Wrinkle. Okay, now let the stone throwing commence.

I wrote this back in 2012. While the political climate has changed here in the United States and it appears that President Trump is pro-Israel there are still many in government that hate Israel and, when they get a chance, perhaps during a next Democratic Administration will use such information as obtained by joint military exercises to use any secrets learned against Israel.

Recently I’ve been seeing blurbs on Facebook about a military exercise that will soon be conducted between Israel and the United States. We all know that anything posted on Facebook needs to be taken with a grain of salt, right? After all, any Tom, Dick or Harry can post on that venue and many of the rumors and falsities that are promoted in society either start on Facebook or are precipitated on that forum.

So when I read about the upcoming military exercise I was skeptical. I called friends to ask about it and nobody had heard any such thing on any blog or on the news outlets that are so prevalent in our society. One of the reasons why I wanted to know more is that I am the news anchor for our weekly radio show on Paltalk Messenger which we call The Remnant Call, or Remnant Call for short. I think that I’ve learned from past experience that any article that I think to be newsworthy better have sources and not be innuendo. I’ve had egg on my face before and I really don’t like the feeling, plus I really abhor inaccuracy.

As many of you know, both Jim Wilhelmsen and myself are co-hosts on our Friday night radio show on BlogTalk radio show so I thought that the best person to run this news by was my co-host. Again, he hadn’t heard anything of the like so I was stymied. So I proceeded home after work last Friday to do an intense search to either find this news or put it to rest for good. I got into Google and typed in “Israel US exercise” and bam it just popped right up as the first link with many other links following. I picked the first link and it was to a mostly reliable British news source and they were quoting UP so it had a hard news connection which made me feel more comfortable about the news and gave it more reliability in my estimation.

Now when I had read the article on Facebook it mentioned that more than nine thousand American troops would be involved as well as an aircraft carrier battle group so this seemed to be some big exercise, not your normal deal. The article on Facebook also went on to state that it was mostly a missile defense exercise and that we Americans were there to shore up Israel’s defenses; probably with the Iranian threat and them being so close to obtaining nuclear weapons capability. The Facebook article also mentioned that the US forces were there as a possible preparation for a joint Israel/US attack on Iran which seems plausible to me.

Anyway, after reading that this was a real exercise, and that it was indeed intended on shoring up Israel’s defense capability against incoming missiles I started to ruminate about this. Something about this just doesn’t make sense; there is something wrong; I felt and still feel in my gut. I don’t think that this is some sort of paranoia but a feeling of real concern and of course I think that the Ruach Ha Kodesh is trying to say something; hence, this blog entry.

For the past 63 years The United States has been a staunch ally of Israel. While many of our leaders appeared to favor Israel it is true that they only did so because most Americans had an unswerving love for the Jewish people and the Jewish Homeland, Eretz Yisrael. Through the years Israel has been the recepient of financial support, political support, military support and most importantly, the prayer support of millions of Yahweh fearing believers in Yeshua. And, like I mentioned above, although some leaders have not been very enthusiastic about Israel public opinion has caused them to support the Apple of Elohim’s Eye.

In the Post Christian Era and with society’s turning away from faith in Yahweh there has been a downswing of support for Israel. Even in the ranks of people who call themselves believers in Yeshua there has be a similar downswing. The ungodliness of our society has affected both believer and unbeliever alike and because of iniquity the love of the many has grown cold. With that the doctrines of demons has taken over much of Christianity and many now adhere to Replacement Theology, Dominionism and other ism’s that seem to be cropping up on an almost weekly basis.

With this in mind it is not hard to believe that we have a leader here in the US that has put Israel on the back burner. Day to day he is showing himself to be a Muslim sympathizer as well as a devout (but mostly closet) adherent of Islam. He’s gone out of his way to bow to foreign leaders, especially Muslim leaders as was seen so clearly when he bowed and kissed the hand of the Saudi Arabian king. There really is no doubt where his allegiance is; not to the United States and the Judeo/Christian ethic, but to Islam and ultimately to Sharia Law.

Before we go on, let’s just take a look at this man a little more. He owns the press and since he’s been in office the whole face or reporting has changed. Now we see Islam being treated like it’s our national religion while the press vilifies Christians and Jews more and more each day. Those who have practiced Jihad in our land have been treated like normal criminals and all mention of any Islamic, Jihadic or Sharia vendetta are purposefully omitted from any press releases. He has clearly supported what was known as the Arab Spring in which long time leaders of Libya, Egypt and other lands have been deposed and where the Islamic Brotherhood has stepped in to administer those lands. The Islamic Brotherhood has long been labeled by western nations as being a terrorist organization with a doctrine of Islamic world domination; yet our leader not only backs them, but in one instance he helps them militarily?

On top of that, how about the super secret drone that was gifted to Iran. Yes, I said gifted. Do they expect anyone to seriously believe that something so technically advanced didn’t have several self destruct devices on it that would keep it from falling into enemy hands. No, the drone just flew to where it was programmed to fly and it was a gift from Obama to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Iranian people; all Islamic brothers to our beloved leader.

Another evidence is how Obama has treated Benjamin Netanyahu in the past. On one state visit, Netanyahu was told to walk in the back door of the White House and then he was forced to wait until the Obama’s had finished dinner and then he was shown out of the back door. Personally, I’ve never done that to anyone, even people whom I don’t like. But, if you’re a Muslim and you don’t want your fellow Muslims to see you as befriending a Jew that is exactly what you do. Then there was the instance where, when in the company of the President of France and with an open microphone, Obama was heard trying to console the French leader who has a poor attitude toward Netanyahu; telling him that he really doesn’t have it so bad because he (Obama) has to put up with Netanyahu on a daily basis. Again, no love for Jews or the Jewish people where Obama is concerned.

Time restricts me from giving more evidences, but the list is long and it only mounts up as more evidence that Barack Hussein Obama is not a friend of the American people and he’s certainly not a friend or ally of Israel.

So why would this president, who hates Israel so much send troops to conduct a military exercise with the IDF and try to protect Israel? There are many things to consider and here are just a few:

  1. It is election time again this year. Obama knows that he’s lost a lot of his Jewish support base because of his treatment toward Netanyahu and Israel. He’s allowing the exercise in an effort to feign support for Israel and get the Jewish vote back.
  2. He wants to incite more hatred toward Israel by feigning support for them and saying that he’ll go along with them to attack Iran and then he’ll back off at the last minute and let Israel take the entire blame.
  3. He knows that our presence there will ignite World War Three after which he’ll back off so that Israel can be destroyed.
  4. He wants to see what see what Israel’s entire military capability really is, including their nuclear capabilities are, as well as their vulnerabilities, so that he can report back to his Muslim keepers so that they will know how to attack Israel.
  5. He wants our troops there so that he can press Israel to give into suing for peace at any cost and if they don’t capitulate he can attack Israel for being a “terrorist nation” that goes against world opinion and the desires of the globalists.
  6. He wants to start a small skirmish in the Middle East so that at home he can declare Martial Law and act upon the National Defense Authorization Act whereby he can label any group or individual he wishes to list as a threat to the United States, so that he can imprision or kill them (us). It would also allow him to suspend the Constitution (which he’s pretty much decimated already) and declare himself “President for Life.”

All of these things are within the realm of the possible and given the craftiness and deceitfulness of this man are quite probable. One thing is for sure; that Barack Hussein Obama is no friend of Israel, Jews, real Americans or Christians. With all of these things considered we should really start wondering what his real motives are for these military exercises and his supposed “protection of Israel.” The Islamic types never protect their enemies; they destroy them as they are commanded to in Koran and the Hadith. My prayers and the prayers of everyone who reads this and loves Yahweh should be that Yahweh give Israel wisdom to see this charade for what it really is and that they guard their secrets from their supposed “ally” in the Oval Office. In addition, prayers for the safety of real believers in this nation would be wonderful too. The persecution starts soon; Yahweh watch over us and protect us, amen and amen.

Addendum: After writing this article I received the following post and link from a friend on FaceBook:

Hey David, your theory on the called off joint Israeli US missile exercise being possibly not beneficial to Israel because of Barack Obama admin. be anti-Israel etc. I think was spot on and apparently Netanyahu may have thought so as well.   http://www.debka.com/article/21656/

This word was written in 2012. Since that time the US has elected Donald Trump into the presidency of our land. It appears, from the outside anyway, that Trump has brokered a peace between the Governments of North and South Korea and the United States. I am holding back my excitement because I believe that North Korea will use this peace accord as a Trojan Horse and that it will attack South Korea. We’ll just have to wait and see.

An Oracle of Yahweh Yeshua for Ban Ki-Moon

Hear the word of Yahweh, you high and exalted leader of The United Nations. Hear My Word for I am he who formed the heavens and the earth. I am he who created time and set all of the stars and planets in their ordained courses. I am He who brings rain and drought; who chases away the darkness with light and it is I who orchestrates the affairs of men.

I was there when your mother gave birth to you and although she didn’t know me I brought her comfort after her hard labor. Although you did not know me I protected you and preserved you from the invaders and occupiers of your homeland. I brought you up through the hardship and it is by my provision that you have grown strong and I have ordained that you hold your exalted position. I have sent my servants to you to witness about Me, to help you to know me but you have refused them. You have turned to gods of fortresses for strength and fortitude and have forsaken the one who has protected and loved you from the moment you were conceived until this very moment. I know you well Ban. You present yourself as a peaceful and confident man however inside your soul is in turmoil because you know deep within your being that I exist and that I have placed you at the heights. Yes Ban, I know you well. You show the world that you are a peaceful and contented soul; a man in control of his emotions, however your lust for power is known by me. Your need for adoration and recognition will be your undoing.

In millennia past I formed a Nation for myself through my servants Avraham, Yitzak and Ya’acov and I called that nation Israel. Like you they were full of pride, arrogance and lust for power and they fell away from me, denying me just like you do today. I sent them into Egypt to protect them from the ravages of drought and to protect them from the Nephilim that were in the land that I had promised to their fathers. In that land they were made slaves, but I grew them into a great nation that only I could number. At the proper time I freed them from the bondage of slavery and refined them in the desert. Forty years after their liberation from Egypt I brought them to the land which I had promised to their fathers and I gave them the land of Israel as MY Mandate. I blessed them there so that they prospered in their inheritance. Through my power they subdued that land and conquered peoples of cruel and evil nature; unnatural offspring that possessed a land not given to them. I gave the land to the Children of Israel and to no other people and it is a perpetual covenant administered by Me and only Me.

Over the course of time they rebelled against me yet again and I sent two tribes into exile in Babylon and scattered the other ten tribes throughout the earth. I gave them my promise, that one day I would bring them back to the land that I had mandated for them; the land that I promised Avraham, Yitzhak and Ya’acov they would always possess. I brought Judah and Benjamin back to the land after 70 years of exile and they remained there until the time when they rejected my Son and I let Rome lead them away into Diaspora where they remained until 1948. While in exile they suffered greatly in every nation on earth and it hurt me so to see them suffer in rejection of Me. However Ban, I am a God of mercy; a God of forgiveness and a God who remembers the promises and oaths that I issue unto men.

Ban, you are a man who understands principalities and powers and you are quite familiar with spiritual wickedness in the highest of places; this I know because you serve them; they are your masters. However Ban, these masters are in rebellion against me and the day is quickly approaching when I will bind these kings of wickedness and cast them into outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Ban, from the day that I swore to Avraham; from the day I swore to Yitzhak and from the night that I swore to Ya’acov their inheritance I established Yerushalayim as MY CITY; it is My Birthright and it is my dwelling place. No man; not Pharaoh of Egypt, Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, Cyrus of Persia, Antiochus of Grecia, Caesar of Rome or any earthly king or kingdom can lay claim to My City; no, not even you Ban. Only I hold the authority to dictate who administers Yerushalayim and until my return I have deeded my city to Judah and until I bring the rest of my people back to Israel, Judah will administer Judah, Samaria and all of the lands that Israel has held since I routed my enemies in 1967.

However Ban, you have taken upon yourself the authority to dictate that my people, my inheritance; my brothers should not administer My City, My Yerushalayim and you seek to make it a city of the nations. I will not tolerate this action Ban; I have not given you this authority and you have overstepped your bounds. You in your perceived power have usurped my power and authority and I cannot and will not allow this. However I know you Ban, and you will not recant; you will not yield to my voice and my dictates.

Because of your arrogance Ban, and because you seek to exert your pride and temporary authority I will show you a sign that will cause you to know what occupation really is. Very soon you will hear rumblings from the northern part of your homeland. With swift surprise the army’s of North Korea will cross the border and will attack and occupy South Korea. The south will be overtaken in slumber and will not be prepared. The American president will make noises and raise protests before you but he will not act to free your homeland for fear of entering into a world war. China and Russia will both aid the North and your people will again be enslaved. You mock Israel and call them occupiers, you call them usurpers and upstarts even though they grant humanitarian aid to their enemies and have made every attempt to live at peace with the Philistines in Gaza, yet to no avail. They are not occupiers, they have a mandate given to them by Me, through their fathers. Although I took them from the Land of Israel and dispersed them I have brought them back and will continue to return My People to their rightful inheritance. Never again will they be forced from their land; the land that I gave to them. Your land Ban will be occupied by your enemies for three and a half years and then I will cause both nations to be one nation and those who live in the south will no longer be slaves to those in the north because they will be one people.

I know the plans that are being made against my people Ban. Peoples from all of the Islamic world will band together to attack My Land and My People but I myself will fight for them. I knew your plans from before time ever existed and I had my servant Yechezqel write the future history of what you plan for my people Israel. Before time existed I knew about the so called “Arab Spring,” and knew it would be consolidation of murderers aligning to attack Israel. It is all written and from my perspective it has already happened and I am always victorious! I will foil your plans and save My People although they will credit to another for their salvation through trickery and deceit. Ultimately they will return to me after three and a half years of troubles. My People Israel will endure forever. Nations will continue to rise and fall and their memories will fade away with time, but Israel will endure forever. Yes Ban, by your own decree against My People Israel you have brought disaster to your own people; by your mouth you have brought judgment to your own land. I will not be mocked, and I will not have My City Yerushalayim divided and although you try to populate My City with dogs and goyim, I will be triumphant. Let this oracle serve as a testimony to you as to who in reality dictates the affairs of mankind. While your handlers claim to own the world and all that dwell on Earth, it is I, El Elyon who plays the foolish ones like chess pieces and soon, very soon my son Yeshua who is called Mashiach; the King of Glory; the Aleph and Tau will return to reward the faithful and to cast the wicked into everlasting darkness and the fire that has been prepared for Lucifer and his minions. At that time Yerushalayim will not only be the Capital of Israel as I have ordained it, but will be the Capital of the whole world. Now you know that your secret plans are not secret and my servants will shout them from the housetops and the things that you do in secret will be brought out into the light for all to see. See, I show you ahead of time. I Am that I Am; I am worthy to be praised and I will save every human who calls upon my name from the utmost parts of the Earth.

Noted and sent to Ban Ki-Moon on January 15, 2012 – 20 Tevet, 5772

I was at our church prayer time held at the Union Gospel Mission. It was January 17, 2012 and approximately 5:15 PM.

As I prayed I noticed that I was no longer at the Mission, but was sitting in a church, or what used to be a church. There was a pulpit at the front of the church and Barack Hussein Obama was speaking from the pulpit, but I could not hear what he was saying. I looked and the church had big and round stained glass windows and they all had pentagrams in them of various colors. As I looked around the room I noticed that there were black pentagrams floating in the air much like a two dimensional paper cutout of a pentagram would do and there were swastikas of black colors doing the same thing. I noticed that on the pulpit of the church was upside-down cross. Later I would realize that it was the cross from the top of the church belfry. To the right of Obama there was a menorah hanging probably two feet in length and one foot in height but it was hanging upside down and there were no candles in it. There was a set of candle holders, made of gold that had two white candles burning in them and they too were hanging upside down.

For some reason I could still tell that Obama was talking but now I was standing in the front of the church to Obama’s left side, way over on the left however and nowhere close to him. I noticed that there were drunkards in the church and it looked like every lowlife that could be found was invited to the service and they were cheering Obama on. The center aisle, the side aisles and the floor in front of the church were full of evil looking venomous snakes. Somehow I was able to walk down the aisles and I saw that the pew section floors were littered with used condoms and used needles. Also, there were two men sitting in the back of the church on two chairs against the wall facing the front of the church. They were both dressed the same, with black suits on, black ties, white shirts and they sat there as if they were spectators. I got a feeling that these men were not participating in the service, but were there to report back to Yahweh; these were holy men. I also noticed that Obama has placed armed guards at the rear doors and it seemed they were there to keep people both in and/or out.

The next thing that I knew I was outside the building and looking at it from a west perspective, meaning I was standing west looking east at the church. In many ways it reminded me of the old Christian Life Center church on Chandler Street in Vacaville, California. The church was in disrepair; the rooftops looked like they were made of wood shingles and there were some tiles missing and the rest of the roof looked like it was caving in and there was a lot of moss on the tiles. The side of the building was white but it looked like there was severe cracking all over the building, like it had been in a bad earthquake or something. There were angels warring on the roof and it was hard to tell which side was winning the battle. This is when the vision ended.

So, What does it all mean??

I have prayed long and hard about what this vision means because it seems to have many facets to it. This is what I am feeling that Yahweh is telling me the vision means.

The first thing that I saw was Obama speaking from the pulpit. His message has always been “change” and that is the crux of his mission. Everything else in the vision is a symptom of the “change.” The change in the vision isn’t political change, but the change of the Church itself; a “fundamental transformation” from what the Biblical dictates that have always been the foundation of the Body of Mashiach; into something that has an foreign foundation. We’ve seen the church fundamentally transforming for a while now; probably the last thirty years but it will accelerate now and it will dismay many people. The pentagrams as the stain glass windows are symbolic of where the change actually comes from; a change ordained and put forth by Satan, and one that will prevail against the Church. Those same stained glass windows not only let in light, a false light, but they also are symbols to those outside of the church that it is no longer a place of Yahweh, but a place of Satan. It could be compared to how Muslims build mosques on the holy places of other religions or in key places that they have conquered.

The upside-down cross is also a sign of satanic ritual and putting the cross in that position often accompanies that ritual. Having it on the outside of the pulpit, where the word is preached from is also a sign that the church is totally given over to the worship of Satan in place of Yahweh who used to be worshipped there. The fact that the cross had been pulled down from the belfry was a symbol to the neighborhood that there had been a total victory over everything Christian that the church had once stood for. I thought that it was interesting that the black pentagrams and swastikas were floating around the room. These symbols were actually the evil spirits that were holding the people captive in the church. Of course we know that the pentagrams are satanic and they represent Satanism and the leader of Satanism but that they were floating around was like they were seeking out anyone who was there that was not given over. The swastikas were evil spirits that were there to convince people that the speaker was there to bring order out of chaos, to effect the change that the people had been asking for and they too were seeking out people who might have been there who were doubting the speaker.

The fact that the participants were cheering-on the speaker had shown that they were totally given over to the message. They were hearing something that they had never heard before; promises that would bless them and would come very quickly to lift them out of their sadness and the mire that they perceived to be in. Their drunkenness was indicative of the that promise of power that they would soon have; being drunk with power so to speak. It also symbolized that they were not thinking in a right mind; like they say; after a few drinks even the ugliest man/woman looks good. To them, it was a good thing that the supposed restrictions imposed on them by Biblical Christianity had been released and they could truly have that form of Godliness but deny the power thereof.

I questioned the menorah turned upside-down with no candles and it was explained to me that this was done to proclaim in triumph that the doctrine of Replacement Theology had totally taken over the church and that as far as anyone was concerned, Israel was dead and that the church was the fulfillment of everything referring to the prophecies about Israel in scripture. It was in effect, a symbol of Satan’s triumph and destruction of the Jewish people as a race in addition to a religion. It was another reason why the flying swastikas were there. The two candles hung upside down but burning were a symbol that the light of the real church would soon be entirely extinguished according to Obama. When the candles had finally burned up his transformation would have been entirely and fully complete.

I wondered why Yahweh had moved me from being within the number of people to the far left of Obama at the front of the church. Well first of all, the church where this was all taking place; a place where I had once attended years ago had an exit door there and there were no guards at that door. Second of all, the right side of a person is a place of honor and the left side is a place of dishonor so my placement there meant that in Obama’s eyes I was a dishonorable person, which is okay for me. I was symbolic in the vision, of someone who would not accept the fundamental transformation of the church and he was graciously going to allow me to leave by the only door that was not guarded.

The snakes on the floor are indicative of all of the lies and deception that were spewing forth from Obama’s mouth. I was reminded of how, in the Garden of Eden, Chava had been lied to by the serpent and the big lie was that she could become like God; and that is the main focus and lie of the fundamental transformation that was being preached at the church. The used condoms and needles on the floor were symbolic of the “feel good” gospel that is being taught by those like Joel Olsteen; that all is permissible and nobody had to feel like they had to worry about dying in their sins as long as they go to church and know of Jesus. However, they were not being taught to “know Jesus,” which is what happens when one is born again in the Ruach Ha Kodesh. According to the fundamental transformation, everything was permissible as long as you believed the lie and submitted to the liar. When you come to think of it, the two things, aside from money and power, that the populace is allowed to have is free love and drugs. Those are the two things that keep people so doped up that they cannot see the truth. It is a fundamental transformation that allows everything that isn’t true faith in Yahweh; the following of Torah and the grace and Gospel of Yeshua Ha Mashiach.

The two men at the back of the church, who looked holy were two men who stood for the truth. They had been placed in the back of the room so that the congregation could not see them but they were still there. But one thing stood out is that that when people got up to leave, they would have to walk by these men and they would have to see righteousness and holiness before they left. They were allowed to stay in the church as a witness and Obama was not allowed to throw them out; they could not be harmed by him or anyone else. I also got the distinct notion that these men were interceding before Yahweh for the church so there must have been one person at least who was redeemable.

The disrepair of the building that I saw symbolized that spiritual sickness on the inside always manifests on the outside. The cracking of the white walls of the building symbolized a loss of purity; a crumbling of what was once beautiful and also that the foundation was faulty. The roof’s disrepair was symbolic that the fundamental transformation has no covering; it is open to the elements and decay. It also symbolized that two things; light and rain could get into the inside of the building. Light always stands for truth and it chases away darkness and rain is symbolic of the Ruach Ha Kodesh and revival. This showed me that all of the new doctrines that are rushing into the church; dominionism, replacement theology, prosperity message, word of faith message and many other heresy’s will prosper for a little while but will later succumb to the light of Yahweh’s truth and the powerful flow of His Ruach.

And finally, the angels warring on the roof were proof to me that Yahweh hadn’t turned over the church entirely to the enemy; that He thinks it worthy to fight over. And yes, while it was hard to tell which side was winning where the angels were concerned, all of the other things showed me that although it will be an uphill battle, Yahweh will preserve a remnant of the church that will not fall for the lies of the enemy (either in the world scene or where spiritual matters are concerned) and that there will be a preserved few that will march on to final victory.

Note: It is strongly stressed by this author that I am NOT suggesting that Barack Hussein Obama is the AntiChrist. I merely suggest that his fundamental transformation attempt of The United States is akin to Satan’s attempt at the fundamental transformation of the Body of Messiah. Please note also that the AntiChrist will not be revealed until the one that restrains is moved out of the way and when he (that man of perdition) is revealed there will be no doubt at who he is and nobody will have to make educated or uneducated guesses.

Every once in a while you find an article that really puts things into perspective. In February of this year our nation had its usual Stupid Bowl Madness which included a football game and a half-time show. The sensation of the show was the artist (if you want to call it art) Madonna who put on what can only be described as a New Age Neo-Pagan Worship Service. The following article was written by a believer in Yeshua named Stacey Dames and it sums up what happened at the half-time show from the perspective of someone who is adept in New Age doctrine and symbolism. Before her article however, I would like to post a picture comparing a Madonna pose alongside the false god Baphomet; you be the judge.

Madonna’s New Age End Time Satanism……it is reappearing in these end days. IT DID NOT BEGIN WITH THE SUPERBOWL

by Stacey Dames on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 at 1:33pm

Before I was saved by the Lord I used to be a HUGE Madonna fan. Obsession probably doesn’t begin to describe it….I even had collectibles of hers worth a decent amount that I destroyed after I was pulled from the wreckage by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

So in honor of the One who saved me, I now write about this  woman who has been used willingly since 1983 by satan and the New World Order elites to further their agenda.   This woman is not merely some untalented  little pop tart singing sweet nothings into the ears of the masses that can be considered ‘harmless’ or to no effect. I cannot obviously cover everything in this post as my memory is not what it used to be, and I am not about to go over every aspect of her career because there is too much to cover and I do not want to set my eyes and mind on such things having been delivered from them.

There is much hoopla about Madonna’s Superbowl half time performance.  However, if you travel back in time, you will connect the dots that lead up to this event, she has been involved in satanism since the beginning. For reasons I have yet to figure out, the global elite are still intent on using this now fifty something woman concerning their end time agenda. There is something about her that they still need from her… to do, or say….as we will see.

Madonna’s most satanic public performance to date actually occured before she became famous. While club hopping performing in her band Emmy at the time, Madonna responds to an ad in the paper to star in a low budget movie called “A Certain Sacrifice.” This movie, made in 1979 is about a girl named Bruna (Madonna) who lives with her three love slaves. She then goes on to be raped by another character in the movie…all get revenge on the rapist as they chant death to him and proceed in a satanic ritual of killing him. The rapists blood is then smeared all over Madonna. The movie alludes to group sex, satanic sacrifice, murder and rape. ( By no mere coincidence in the filming of this movie, Madonna (and 2 others) are seen in the back of a limo with the sunroof open and she is loudly singing the lines, “Let the sunshine in” from the new age satanic 60’s group the Fifth Demension. The actual title of the song is “The Age of Aquarius” which is an esoteric occult song about leaving thePiscean age (supposed age of Jesus) and entering the Aquarian age (which is antichrists one world political, religious and financial system).

  • In 1984 a young bouncy Madonna appeared on American Bandstand to perform her then debut hit “Holiday.” After performing Dick Clark asked her a few questions through the screams of fans and it ended with her stating that her plans for the rest of her career were “to rule the world.”  Very few paid attention. She was seen as a trampy disco dolly who would more than likely turn out to be a one hit wonder.
  • In 1985 with another album almost out, Madonna starred in a movie called “Desperately Seeking Susan“, a supposed comedy. The story behind the story of the movie was about recovering lost earrings of Egyptian artifacts relating to Queen Neferititi. Madonna ends up with one half of the earrings….this is also where we see her in a jacket supposedly owned by the late, self admitted demon possessed guitar player Jimi Hendrix, which she eventually trades in. The eye of Horus over the pyramid is CLEARLY shown on the back of this jacket. ( I do not know if this jacket actually belonged to Jimi or was just written into the movie as fiction)
  • 1986 Madonna releases the Papa Don’t Preach video. This seems to have a positive message, though promotes fornication. She has decided to keep her baby and no one is changing her mind! Both pro abortion and anti abortion groups duke it out over the content and lyrical meaning of the video/song and Madonna’s overall reputation is brought under question again. Unfortunately and very sadly life did not imitate art on this one if Madonna’s many biographers are correct. If they are she has had abortions in the double digits.
  • 1989 Madonna begins to create controversy once again deciding to rival with Michael Jackson and begins grabbing her crotch in the Express Yourself Video. She also whips up a storm around the Like A Prayer video in which more catholic iconography is used including statues of saints coming to life, stigmata and burning crosses. She also dances very suggestively in front a young black boy and is accused of pedophilia type behavior. This would not be the first time as she did this in her very provacatively dressed  Open Your Heart video in which she portrays a stripper who a young boy is chasing after. At the end of the video Madonna kisses the underage boy full on the mouth and they run off together. Also noted is Madonna’s inability to make peace with the passing of her mother who died from cancer when she was young. From day one of her career she goes on to worship her dead mother and her mothers memory, bringing it up at every possible ‘artistic’ endeavor, even blaming her mother’s death for the way she is.
  • By 1990 Madonna is everywhere in the media….she is pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, pro-feminism and graphic pictures of her have been released and her attitude is at best flippant. Sporting roman catholic idols in many of her fashion looks, she gives interview after interview talking about herself:  how she was born to do this, this is her fate and destiny and she does not care about those she is offending. She is telling US, the audience, she is going to put all this in our face repeatedly and one day…….you will get used to it, even learn to love it.
  • Also in 1990 Madonna releases the Justify My Love song and video. She again gives interviews explaining and justifying her sadomaschism and bisexuality portrayed in the video. The video is banned and goes on to sell millions. What went mostly unnoticed is that also released was the single version of Justify My Love in which the last song on the release ( titled Justify My Love -the Beast Within Remix) is a heavy breathing Madonna singing the Justify My Love chorus line in between her reading from the Book of Revelation. What many didn’t know was that these versus were taken out of context and words were changed to fit her interpretation/song. The Jewish community noticed and protested due to its perceived anti-semitism.
  • 1990 Madonna performs her Blonde Ambition Tour worldwide. She blasphemes the name of the Lord among other lewd behavior, a usual show for her. A  supposed documentary calledTruth or Dare accompanies this tour showing  behind- the- scenes look at her much defended ‘art.’ (her brother Christopher, in his 2008 book “Life With My Sister Madonna” goes on to say that most of it was staged) Big surprise!
  • 1992 Madonna releases an album entitled Erotica and a book called Sex. This is her ” I am pervert, hear me roar!” year and even her long term fans are left scratching their heads as she goes on television yet again to give interviews about how deep down she is really just a nice, quiet, midwestern girl whose ‘artistic expressions’ are being gravely misunderstood. Her album and book is filled with perversions including homosexuality, hints at beastiality, candle- lit ritualistic like sacrifices and a man who is simulating a perverted act with her while wearing a leather jacket that reads LUCIFER on the back.
  • Also noted in 1992 Madonna releases a video for the song Fever where she is enveloped in a flame- like atmosphere with her tongue sticking out in a devilish way that calls to mind the ancient goddesses in that she is wearing the crown headdresses and posing like the ancients she tries so hard to emulate and be worshipped like.
  • 1993 Madonna performs the Girlie Show Tour worldwide. This is where she also dons the goddess headdress during her “Vogue” performance and at the end of the song “Fever” she descends into a pit surrounded by a literal cirlce of flames. (insert obvious here) In the Australian concert release, she leads a chant and the audience follows their queen as she comes up with an “on the spot diddy” jingle about the land down under where she has the entire arena chanting that they don’t give a you- know- what if they all go to hell. During the Justify My Love segment, Madonna and crew are seen in Mad Hatter attire reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland and black and white masonic checkerboards appear in background and on floor.
  • 1994 Madonna releases her video for Bedtime Stories song (album of same name) and at the beginning we are shown the eye of Horus with her real last name CICCONE typed in underneath. In the video she is in a coma- like trance state where she is singing about unconsciousness…the cosmic travel of astral projection…. of not needing words and going there through the mind, meditative induced states. At one point in the video her face grotesquely contorts and the eye of Horus (circle sunlight only, enlightenment evolved) appears in the middle of her forehead. Also noted are: a witches hat, mystic whirling dervishes levitating, a reference to the double headed god Janus, arabic writing on the ground where grapes are being stomped in wrath, she gives birth to doves and levitates and floats down a hallway to the surprise of onlooking children…. and at one point she is also cuddling with a skeleton as she sings, and the dark haired Madonna appears in the sun (eye of horus) again with floating ‘light spirits’ surrounding her.
  • 1995 Human Nature video is referenced to black(costumes) and white(background) checkerboard squares (masonic reference) and Madonna, at one point,  is being tossed about in dance moves with her back up dancers who are using black ropes. In a split second frame, she falls back onto the ropes and the camera shot is from above and she is clearly laying on a satanic pentagram. The video is her repsonse to the backlash of bad reviews of her perverted SEX book. She sings she is not sorry, it’s her nature and you’re the one with the problem.
  • 1998- Madonna pays homage to Hinduism and cabbalah in her Ray of Light album. In sanskrit prayer, Madonna sings to any number of the millions of gods of Hinduism with herShanti/Astangi chant song. Ray of Light is a reference to the tree of life taught in the cult cabbalah, which she is a very active member by this point.
  • 1998 In the video for Frozen, Madonna now wearing black goth clothes donning a witches outfit has her several selves strut about a barren desert, enchanting and bewitching..demanding that you “give yourself to me.” Her yet again infamous 666 pose(better known as the yoga pose-thumb meets first finger) is seen throughout the blue/black skies in this depressing dreary witchy video
  • 1999 Madonna releases a song titled “Beautiful Stranger“, who is this, a beautiful person? Entity? This ‘thing’ is everywhere she goes and everybody knows, to know ‘it’ is to love it. She cannot escape it and doesn’t want to. Lucky Star is also a reference to satan. See pagan origin of “luck” and what star represents.
  • 2001- What it Feels Like For A Girl video, directed by then husband Guy Ritchie, Madonna is a tattooed, gun toting, car stealing criminal. Lewd language is seen throughout the video and it is described as one of her ‘most violent’ videos to date. In one scene, Madonna is leaving a hotel room she was hiding out in and shuts the door, having the last number on the door drop down…from a 9 to a 6, so the room number now reads 666.
  • 2001 Madonna’s Drowned World Tour esoteric occult symbolism displayed throughout concert but a rather odd number sticks out called “the funny song“. It is about cannabalism and murder…in a bad country accent she sings about her father being shot in his head upon her arriving home and she is not going to grieve because daddy brought out the worst in her…..she then goes on to sing about having herself a barbecue and roasting his bones and how good they taste and she would have killed him herself if only she could.
  • 2003- Madonna’s American Life album has a song on it called “Mother and Father” where she sings…..”There was a time I was happy in my life/There was a time I believe I’d live forever/ There was time I that I prayed to Jesus Christ/There was a time I had a mother it was nice” Madonna is publicly denouncing Jesus Christ, not that anyone thought she was a Christian, but she is making sure her listeners also adopt this belief as well.
  • 2006 Madonna as glorified social worker again, making millions off the peons who worship her with outrageous ticket prices, sings Live to Tell in her Confessions Tour on a cross with a crown of thorns on her head. There is also another documentary released around this time called “I’m Going to Tell You A Secret“, which is just like TOD documentary following her backstage as she goes on tour for Confessions….or so it seems. It is actually an infomercial for all things cabbalah and new age. She and her puppets (dancers, etc.) mimic her new age lingo left, right and center. She talks about ‘the source’, going back to the “light”, karma type references and indoctrinates her audience into cabbalah 101. By this point in her personal life cabbalah is her god, next to self and money, and she is gaining the reputation for not letting anyone in her cirlce who is not into the mystical witchcraft of cabbalah. (Her brother and former manager,who later went on to committ suicide, are included in this ex member group)
  • in 2007 Madonna as self glorified social worker still,  releases a song titled “Hey You” in which she promotes world peace and unity (as she has many times before this)…she sings about prophets envying her/her fans, she promotes “maya” the ancient eastern belief that reality is nothing but an illusion including the way you feel, and that ultimately only you can save your soul and DO NOT RELY ON ANYONE ELSE. You have to first love yourself to love anyone else (usual psychobabble positive talk/thought manifestation).
  • 2008 Madonna releases Hard Candy album, which contains the song “4 minutes” about saving the world from some cataclysmic disaster.
  • 2012 Madonna’s superbowl halftime show and pre-game interview. Song Fever is played and she takes questions from the crowd. She is worshipped and asked how she keeps going. She first attributes the universe and the ‘grace of god’ and untold number of guardian angels. She is wearing skull and crossbone earrings. Her halftime show is the usual pagan fanfare she started presenting in the early 90’s.

It should be quite obvious to anyone paying attention that this woman is not harmless. She is the embodiment of antichrist. She has attempted to blur the lines between genders and gender roles, grabs her crotch in defiance to Michael Jackson and society in general…if a man can do it, so can she.

From her album covers to her concert performances, from the imagery used on the jumbo screens behind her, to her photographs, to the words in her songs and interviews, this woman has clearly been on a satanic agenda from day one and her world is a relentless assault on the public of occult symbols, meanings and representations. She is most certainly a high priestess of satanism as she has been an active member of the cult of cabbalah for well over fifteen years.

Cabbala (spelled a number of ways) is Jewish mysticism, the  occult beliefs and practices that explains to the mystical enlightenment seeking crowd (tickling ears), that the Word of God does not mean what is clearly said….God was not clear enough, there are hidden messages (occult) of knowledge that only the elite types are priviledged to. She is a satanic pawn in bringing about the moral collapse of societal values and simply loathes and hates the God of the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ. She hates all authority and encourages men to dress/behave like women and women to dress/behave like men. She spits on pro life, pro family values and morals and encourages women to behave like whores. She is a siren who lures men to their death, which she has admitted to in interviews. She knows exactly what she is doing.

Also noted about her interviews is how the interviewer will always comment how small, demure, ladylike she is in person….quiet, well spoken and intelligent. She has been painted as an artist who people just don’t understand, an artist who  would rather have negative publicity than none at all so long as it keeps her name in the papers and her records selling.

Why she is being revived for this last go round in these end times I cannot know. I find it interesting in nearly all her movies she is either being stalked or someone is trying to kill her or actually does so. In a couple of her videos she is being chased, killed or an assassination attempt is made on her life. Someone once brought to my attention there is a quatrain in Nostrodamus’ writings that  predicts that a very famous blonde artist by the name of Modena is set up somehow and violently killed. Not that I put stock in what that man says, but there is probably some truth to this. When ‘they’, the elitists, are done with her and can no longer work through her, they will have her taken out because she will be of no use  to them anymore. Her ways and thoughts are continously evil and satan has used her to lead millions to hell. She is not the only one…but one of the biggest, one of the most dangerous.

Needless to say I destroyed my entire Madonna collection  and I couldn’t do it fast enough. When the Lord opened my spiritual eyes and I realized I was following satan, my soul was distressed and I repented. Satan has many disguises and works through many ‘artists.’ After all ‘art’ is the name of the main demon all these artists works, work through.

Madonna sings about Satan in a few of her songs…. Beautiful Stranger is one of them. Let me just say there is nothing beautiful about worshipping the devil and spending an eternity in the lake of fire……but satan never wraps the package of hell in ugly wrapping, does he?

Thank you Father for opening my eyes. Any crowns I get will I cast at your feet, for YOU ALONE are worthy. Thank you for saving a wretch like me from the wreckage.  I pray this opens even onepersons spiritual eyes. If someone you know worships this woman (idolatry, as she is referred to as goddess and Queen and worshipped by millions), please pass this along to them.

*She is about to go on tour again this year with the release of her new album. Please pray for this very wicked and deceived woman, one of the greatest deceived ever, as she is the embodiment of the new age, very last, end time world religion of self as God. Also pray for the millions she has deceived. She is preparing the way for antichrist. Time is short, eternity forEVER! God Bless

MARK 8:36 Your fame and fortune will profit you nothing in the day of judgment.

YOU CAN’T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND ENOCH TOO!

Way back in the early years of the 21st Century there was a fellow named Guy Malone. Guy had blazed a new trail; one that led to Roswell, New Mexico, and one that would find him constantly in the light of controversy. You see, Guy was one of those people who claimed that he was abducted by aliens, except he came to town with a new message; these supposed aliens were not from outer space like so many in the scientific community contended and wanted to believe. No, Guy’s message was that these entities are spiritual in nature, namely, fallen angels that somehow physically manifest.

While there was not a lot hard biblical evidence that this was true there were some suggestions in scripture that his message held water, but the real proof came in a little known book called The Book of Enoch, or to be more on the spot, First Enoch, so as not to confuse it with to other books that have similar titles and are Gnostic in nature. This Book of Enoch was a relatively new rediscovery; found amidst the Dead Sea Scrolls and in the Ethiopian Bible as one of their canonical books.

Guy came under a lot of attack as do all people who even “dare” to mention that they got some of their information from the Book of Enoch. You see, back in the old days, when the Church Fathers were finagling around to determine which books were actually inspired by the Holy Spirit they dismissed some of the books and the Book of Enoch joined other books that would be relegated as uninspired by men who themselves were probably lacking the unction of the Holy Spirit.

In the late 20th Century, when the book of human dominion of Earth started to draw to a close people started to take note of Enoch again. The book seemed to allude to modern physics and natural laws that have only recently been rediscovered. Also, the book is noted for explaining in great detail the antediluvian world (the world before the flood); the rebellion of angels, their cavorting with human females and the creation of unnatural offspring. With the revelations that this book was bringing people were starting to see that the incidents that occurred before the flood were starting to occur again, specifically where the fallen angels and women are concerned. They saw many parallels between the antics of the fallen angels before the flood and modern day alien abduction.

With this in mind, Guy Malone decided to delve into a study to prove the validity of the Book of Enoch. He wanted to show that it is a valuable book; one worthy of consideration when researching the modern world and all its parallels with Noah’s day. In these earlier years Malone was convinced that Enoch was a valid book and that it filled in so many gaps that Genesis left for interpretation, or misinterpretation. In this work and this study Malone is to be applauded because he was right and he was going to stick to his guns on the matter.

The problem then arose where Guy and some of his associates had a change of heart concerning the book of Enoch. His association with another researcher who adamantly teaches that alien abduction, or fallen angel harassment is spiritual only in nature; psychic or in one’s head so to speak has caused this once ardent researcher (Guy) to turn the rudder hard left and send the ship in the opposite direction. Perhaps only Guy and Yahweh know why he has made this about-face decision; perhaps a few close friends know too, but it is very odd that someone who wrote the article below, and wrote it wish such conviction and obvious hard working research could just “change his mind” about something so crucial; so intrinsic to the Christian UFO Research Realm.

Presented below is Guy’s article on the Book of Enoch and his strong defense of the ancient text. Perhaps someone who reads this blog entry would like to ask him how such a rapid departure from the obvious truth could occur. And finally, one last thing before his article, the question has to be asked; if he can flip-flop on this issue like he obviously has, is he correct about his other ideas and/or assertions? Can he be trusted with rightly dividing the truth and why is he, and his other associates so intent on destroying the ministries of those will not bend and change like he has. Perhaps some day we’ll know the answers to those questions, but myself, and others I’ve talked to just cannot at this time take any such person seriously about any sort of doctrinal issue; especially when he can flip on a dime and give you nine cents change.

So here is the article for your consideration. Please note that the links in the article are now defunct and he has removed the information since he has changed his mind.

The Case for Enoch, by Guy Malone (History of the Book of Enoch)

Chapter Eleven – The Case for Enoch

by Guy Malone

(Originals located at http://www.alienresistance.org/book_of_enoch.htm and http://www.alienresistance.org/sons_of_seth.htm

“At that time I beheld the Ancient of Days, while he sat upon the throne of his glory, while the book of the living was opened in his presence, and while all the powers which were above the heavens stood around and before him.” – Book of Enoch 47:3 (Ethiopic, Artisan pub)

Since it’s English translation in the 1800’s from texts found in Ethiopia in 1768, The Book of Enoch (known today as 1st Enoch) has made quite a stir in academic circles. 1 Enoch has been authenticated as existing and in wide use before the church age (most scholars now date it at 200 BC). Multiple copies were discovered in 1948 in the Dead Sea Scrolls. This of course has caused many to wonder why it is not included in modern Bibles…

“Thou has seen what Azazyel has done, how he has taught every species of iniquity upon the earth… Samyaza also has taught sorcery… They have gone together to the daughters of men, have lain with them… The women likewise have brought forth giants…” Enoch 9:5-8

Parts of The Book of Enoch tell the story of wicked angels who abducted and mated with human women, resulting in the hybrid race known throughout secular and Biblical history as the Nephilim (giants, KJV).

While this account encompasses only the first four verses of Genesis 6 (but see also Genesis 3:15, 2 Peter 2:4-6, Jude 6-7), Enoch 1 relates this story in great detail. It lists the names of 18 “prefect” angels – of 200 – who committed this sin. According to the text, these angels also taught mankind the “making of swords and knives, shields and breastplates (metallurgy); … magical medicine, dividing of roots (medicinal and hallucinogenic use); incantations, astrology, the seeing of the stars, the course of the moon, as well as the deception of man.”

By Noah’s time, “The earth also was corrupt (wasting – KJV notation) before God, and the earth was filled with violence… all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.” (Gen 6:10-11) Afraid of the consequences, these angels appeal to Enoch to intercede with God on their behalf; God instead uses Enoch to deliver a message of judgment against them. Aside from the “taking of wives,” God states that he would not forgive them for teaching mankind magical arts and warlike ways. As summarized by Pastor Chris Ward:

“According to the Book of Enoch (Not a Canonical Text), God judged the angels for producing the Nephilim. God decreed that the fallen angels (Watchers) were to be cast into Tartarus. The Nephilim were also judged and it was determined that their bodies were to return to the earth in peace but their souls were doomed to wander the earth forever (as) wandering spirits…” (Pastor Chris’s Enoch web page, www.logoschristian.org/enoch.htm which reprints this dialogue between God and Enoch, and his The Origin of Demons web page www.logoschristian.org/demon.htm)

The increasing acceptance and popularization of this important book among theologians helps cast light on the extra-terrestrial hypothesis (ETH) in general. Enoch is an ancient writing, which states that angels (not true space aliens, as stated by many UFO cults, and popular modern authors Erich Von Daniken and Zechariah Sitchin) visited ancient Earth and polluted mankind’s DNA. While this case can easily be made solely from the canonized Bible (see Gen 2:1. 3:15, 6:1-4, Dan 2:43, Matt 24:37, Rom 1:21-25, 2 Cor 11:14-15, Eph 6:12, 2 Pet 2:4-6, Jude 1:6-7), Enoch is yet another witness against these incorrect interpretations of Earth’s predelulvian era (i.e., before the flood of Genesis 6). The fact that they also gave mankind technology, which supposedly “advanced our race” (but which we actually used to destroy each other, and to incur God’s judgment), lends itself to a more sinister understanding of today’s UFO phenomenon…

FAQ:

Q: What other evidences for Enoch’s authenticity (as a sacred text) are there? Why isn’t it in the Bible today? Jesus said that angels can’t have sex, proving this book’s falsehood…

A: The idea that Jesus said that angels cannot have sex is a very common objection to The Book of Enoch and the angelic understanding of Genesis 6 in general. However it is also a very common misinterpretation of what he actually said.

Matthew 22:29-30

“Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.” (KJV)

“Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” (NIV)

“But Jesus answered them, You are wrong, because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.” (RSV)

Looking carefully and without a preconceived notion, we see that Jesus said that the angels “in heaven” DO NOT marry (nor presumably – have sex, reproduce). He did not state that angels “in general” CAN NOT do so. An unmarried Christian who – like the angels of God in heaven – wishes to remain obedient to God’s will, “does not” have sex, but not because he or she is physically incapable of doing so.

That angels cannot have sex would be a fair interpretation of this passage, if this were the only passage in scripture that came close to dealing with the topic. It is not however, and therefore any interpretation of this scripture will be in accord with all else that is written. Jude 6 and 2 Peter 2:4-6 clearly indicate that the sin of these angels was sexual in nature, affirming the hybrid understanding of Genesis 6.

When they “shape-shift,” angels can appear like perfectly normal humans (Heb 13:2). We know from the Old Testament that they not only appear human, but that they can eat food as well (Genesis 18:6-8; 19:3. In fact, angels eat when in their “normal” state – Psalm 78:24-25 tells us that manna is the “food of angels”). There is no reason to assume that angels do not contain all the physical properties of a normal human being, when assuming human form. However, they are not human, which goes a long way towards understanding why their children were “superhuman” (known as the heroes of old, men of renown, legends, Titans, Giants… depending upon your Bible translation.)

While far-fetched or disturbing to some, Matthew 22:30 simply does not dogmatically infer that sexual reproduction is a physical impossibility for angelic beings. In fact, since Jesus specified the angels “in heaven,” one would have to go beyond what is actually written (AND ignore what else IS written) to state that angels that ARE NOT in heaven – fallen – seeking to thwart God’s purposes – CAN NOT have sex.

As Jesus said above, “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures…” Taken as a whole, the entire body of scripture indicates otherwise.

Which brings up the question, WHY would they do so?

“…the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful…” Gen 6:2 NIV

Quite simply, “lust” would be the most obvious and scriptural answer.

Beyond that misunderstanding, there is no doubt today that The Book of Enoch was one of the most widely accepted and revered books of Jewish culture and doctrine in the century leading up to Jesus’ birth.

It is usually noted first that New Testament author Jude directly quotes from 1 Enoch. “Behold he comes with ten thousands of his saints to execute judgment…” (1 Enoch 2, Jude 14-15). Additionally, “the citations of Enoch by the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs… show that at the close of the second century B.C., and during the first century B.C., this book was regarded in certain circles as inspired” (1).

Aside from Jude, Peter and Paul’s affirmations of the angelic/hybrid interpretation, recognition of 1 Enoch “… is given amply in the Epistle of Barnabus, and in the third century by Clement and Irenaeus” (1). The Catholic Church’s Origen – known as “the father of theology” – affirmed both the Book of Enoch and the fact that angels could and did co-habitate with the daughters of men. He even warned against possible angelic and/or Nephilim infiltration of the church itself. Oddly, while thousands of his writings are still considered by them as “sacred,” this very issue got him labeled as a heretic when the faulty Sons of Seth “doctrine” was conceived! (2)

Additionally, the Coptic Orthodox Churches of Egypt (est’d appx 50-100 A.D.) still include Enoch as canonized text in the Ethiopic Old Testament (2). This fact alone should carry great weight for Western Christians when honestly studying the “case” for Enoch. Given their 1900+ year history, the fact that they were never “ruled” by Rome’s theology, and that they currently number over 10 million – this is a very significant portion of The Body of Christ that has historically esteemed 1 Enoch as inspired doctrine.

Some today (who do not seem to believe in the inspiration of scripture) claim that most major themes of the New Testament were in fact “borrowed” from 1 Enoch. “It appears that Christianity later adopted some of its ideas and philosophies from this book, including the Final Judgment, the concept of demons, the Resurrection, and the coming of a Messiah and Messianic Kingdom” (3). No doubt, these themes are major parts of 1 Enoch, and appear there as complete theologies a full 200 years before any other NT writings.

Christian author Stephen Quayle writes, “Several centuries before and after the appearance of Jesus in Jerusalem, this book had become well known to the Jewish community, having a profound impact upon Jewish thought. The Book of Enoch gave the Jews their solar calendar, and also appears to have instilled the idea that the coming Messiah would be someone who had pre-existed as God (4).” Translator RH Charles also stated that “the influence of 1 Enoch on the New Testament has been greater than all of the other apocryphal and pseudepigraphical books put together” (3). The conclusions are somewhat inescapable given Enoch’s dating and wide acceptance between 200 B.C. and 200 A.D. Either Christian authors, and especially the Nicene Council, did plagiarize their theology directly from Enoch, or the original version of Enoch was also inspired.

James H Charlesworth, director of Dead Sea Studies at Yale University, says in The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha & The New Testament (Trinity Press International),”I have no doubt that the Enoch groups deemed the Book of Enoch as fully inspired as any biblical book. I am also convinced that the group of Jews behind the Temple Scroll, which is surely pre-Qumranic, would have judged it to be quintessential Torah — that is, equal to, and perhaps better than, Deuteronomy….Then we should perceive the Pseudepigrapha as they were apparently judged to be: God’s revelation to humans(2 & 5).”

But perhaps the most telling argument for 1 Enoch’s “inspiration” may well be that the Jewish understanding of the term “Son of Man” as a Messianic title comes – not truly from our Old Testament canon – but from the Book of Enoch! Ever wonder why Jesus refers to himself in the gospels as the “Son of Man” rather than the Son of God? (2) Of over 100 uses of the phrase “son of man” in the OT, it refers almost always to “normal” men (93 times specifically of Ezekiel, and certainly not as Messiah!), but is used only one time in the entire OT, in one of Daniel’s heavenly visions, to refer to divinity. Despite the Old Testament’s frequent lack of divine application of the phrase, 1 Enoch records several trips to heaven, using the title “Son of Man” unceasingly to refer to the pre-incarnate Christ. Of particular Messianic significance, Enoch describes the following scene (2):

The angels “glorify with all their power of praise; and He sustains them in all that act of thanksgiving while they laud, glorify and exalt the name of the Lord of Spirits forever and ever… Great was their joy. They blessed, glorified and exalted because the name of the Son of Man was revealed to them (1 Enoch 68:35-38).”

Both His disciples, and especially the Sanhedrin knew what Jesus was claiming – 84 times in the gospels! – when referring to Himself as the “Son of Man.” This claim was considered an obvious blasphemy to the Pharisees & Sadducees, but it is eternal life to all who confess that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, the Son of Man, The Messiah, God in the flesh, The Holy One of Israel, God’s Christ – the Lord of All to whom every knee shall bow (Philippians 2:8-10).

Using “normal rules” of scriptural interpretation, we are never to draw firm doctrine from only one passage of scripture. Right? Daniel’s single use of “Son of Man” (in a “night vision” at that – Dan 7:13), would not be sufficient to claim that the phrase is indeed Messianic, especially given the other 107 times it is not used in that way. 1 Enoch is the missing “second witness” needed (according to all other rules of interpretation) to understand the phrase’s double meaning as an enduring Messianic title. It has been argued ever since Enoch’s first English translation, that by using this title so familiar to the Jews, Jesus was actually affirming the truth of this book, that the prophet was taken on many trips to heaven before his “final” translation, and that He was the one whom Enoch saw there – the pre-existent Son of Man, whom Enoch prophesied would judge the souls of all men.

Interestingly, Daniel is ALSO the only OT use of the term “watcher” to ever refer to angels (Daniel 4:13, 17, 23 KJV). Strong’s Concordance defines a watcher as a “guardian angel” (Strong’s 5894). “The distinguishing character of the Watcher (opposed to other angels in the canon) appears to be that it spends much time among men, overseeing what they are doing. It is also interesting to note that both times one of these angels appeared to Daniel, he took pains to note that it was “an holy one,” suggesting that some Watchers are not aligned with God while others are (4).” Found nowhere else in the OT canon but the book of Daniel, “watcher” is patently Enoch’s term for these angels. Likewise, Daniel alone used Enoch’s term “Son of Man” to refer to the pre-incarnate Christ, adding further intrigue to the case for 1 Enoch’s inspiration, and an overall understanding of it’s doctrinal acceptance among both Old and New Testament writers.

What we lose out on today by not examining 1 Enoch – even if only for its historical significance – is that it is perhaps actually more splendid than any other book in our canon in its exultation of Christ as King! It also gives clear, stern and oft-repeated warnings to the unsaved of swift destruction at the Coming of The Lord, but is also full of amazing promises of future glory for the elect! We are of course wise to stay clear of dangerous heresy, but… ask yourself if the below sounds like false doctrine? Keep in mind, this was written at least 200 years before Christ walked the earth, and perhaps before Noah’s birth:

“Then shall the kings, the princes, and all who possess the earth, glorify Him who has dominion over all things, Him who was concealed; for from eternity the Son of Man was concealed, whom the Most High preserved in the presence of His power and revealed to the elect.

He shall sow the congregation of the saints, and of the elect; and all the elect shall stand before Him in that day. All the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who rule over the earth shall fall down on their faces before Him, and shall worship Him. They shall fix their hopes on this Son of Man…

Then the sword of the Lord of Spirits shall be drunk from them (the lost); but the saints and the elect shall be safe in that day; nor the face of the sinners and the ungodly shall they thence-forth behold. The Lord of Spirits shall remain over them; And with this Son of Man shall they dwell, eat, lie down, and rise up for ever and ever…” Enoch 61:10-13

Literally Translated from the Ethiopic by Richard Laurence LL.D. Archbishop of Cashel Late Professor of Hebrew in the University of Oxford

“For more than a century, scholars and church officials debated as to whether or not certain gospels, epistles and apocalypses should be included. For instance, it was long debated which to include in the canon, the Book of Revelation, or the Book of Enoch…”Liberty Magazine – December 7, 1935 (1)

Q: OK! OK! So why is it not in the Bible?

A: Uncertain as well as multiple authorship, and several slightly varying texts are among the main reasons cited for Enoch not “making it” into the generally recognized canon. In truth, the spiritual agenda(s) of the early Roman Church is most likely the ultimate reason however, and we will examine this agenda here as well. Let’s begin with the first two though, before moving to the more incredulous, but quite valid “conspiracy theories.”

“The Book of Enoch, like the book of Daniel, was originally written in Aramaic, and partly in Hebrew (1).” While there may have been Hebrew translations during the centuries B.C. (which early church leaders may or may not have had access to), today only the Ethiopic manuscripts exist, as well as some incomplete Greek and Latin translations, plus one Aramaic fragment from the Dead Sea Scrolls. By the time of Jesus’ birth, “average” Jews were reading mainly the Greek Septuagint translation of their own Torah (completed 200 B.C.), as a result of their years of foreign captivity and the then current Roman occupation. To coin the vernacular, they had been assimilated. So unless an authentic Aramaic version appears miraculously today, there will never be any completely indisputable way to argue for a modern “canonization” of 1 Enoch, as the originals are lost, probably forever.

The honest problem facing the infant Roman Church of 390 A.D., when first assembling today’s Bible, was that the existing copies of 1 Enoch varied, albeit in minor ways. “Unlike the (rest of the) Bible which was carefully copied and checked for errors by Jewish and Christian scribes throughout its history, The Book of Enoch is available in a number of ancient manuscripts that differ slightly from one another… and many errors have crept in… There is no way of knowing which versions are (exactly faithful to) the original and which are the errors. While this doesn’t change its stories in any substantial manner, it does make it impossible to anchor beliefs or arguments on any given section… (4).”

Even to those who will rightfully argue that Enoch was unjustly banned, this alone is a legitimate reason to exclude it from the holy writ. When faced with the task of declaring what is and what is not the “inspired, infallible Word of God,” erring on the side of caution and certainty must be the case every time! (Only those who do not believe in the divine inspiration, and modern integrity, of scripture will be dissatisfied with this reasoning.) So, while 1 Enoch is almost beyond doubt an “inspired” text, the translated copies available (presumably) in 390 A.D., and especially those we have today, could not with any certainty also be classified as “infallible.”

Another less important but quite “legitimate” issue is that 1 Enoch is actually a collection of at least four different “books,” possibly written by various authors over many centuries, and possibly not by the true Enoch of Genesis

The Artisan Publishers’ introduction to The Book of Enoch says “there can be no shadow of doubt” that there is a diversity of authorship and perhaps even time periods represented across the span of 1 Enoch, but that there is also “nonetheless, uniformity.” They attribute this to the very possible idea that as God raised up prophets (after Malachi…?), they published under the safety of a revered pseudonym, to avoid persecution and possible death at the hands of the religious powers-that-were, who wanted no “fresh words” from God (1). This could well be the case, but would make the book(s) of Enoch no less inspired of God if true. However, only the NT Book of Hebrews (written centuries closer to the Bible’s assembly, with multiple matching manuscripts) has been accepted as canon with such uncertain authorship – without even a good solid guess agreed upon, that is.

Since “the real” Enoch of Genesis 5 was transported to heaven – permanently – it would be no stretch to imagine that it was also a normal experience during his lifetime. After all, the Bible says he walked with God for 300 years! (Genesis 5:22) The first 36 chapters (detailing the watchers’ fall) are sometimes only reluctantly attributed to Enoch (given their pre-deluvian history), but there are varying theories regarding the rest of the book(s). For much of the 1800’s, it was argued that the remaining chapters were actually the work of an early Christian scribe, but these claims were decisively put to rest with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, as were JT Milik’s claims that chapters 37-71 were Christian.

Charlesworth says “The consensus communis is unparalleled in almost any other area of research; no specialist now argues that I Enoch 37-71 is (written by a first-century) Christian and (that it) postdates the first century… (2) and (5).” With this in mind, we must again face up to the very real dilemma of stating that that either the entire New Testament was “drawn” in a natural, secular way from 1 Enoch – with no supernatural inspiration – or that 1 Enoch and The New Testament are both from God.

It is also considered that possibly a single author assembled older prophets’ inspired works around 200 B.C. and simply added Enoch’s name to them all, to ensure widespread acceptance – “Hardly a practice that inspires confidence in the text (4).” But in reality, it is no secret academically that certain canonized OT books, as well as Mark’s gospel, may have been originally written by another – or even multiple – inspired author(s) and later were also assembled under the inspiration of God by a single author, who put either his own, or the original author’s name, to the work. For example, most agree that Moses actually wrote Job’s story from other existing texts (or that he knew him personally), before he even wrote Genesis. Most of the Major Prophets and historical books contain clear breaks in the time period, and were finally assembled many years later – as the author “was carried along by the Holy Spirit (1 Peter 2:21).” Christians need to get over the idea that “inspiration” means the writer went into some mystical trance, while God “possessed them” and wrote the Bible. Inspiration simply means they were obedient to God’s leading, and wrote what He said OR supernaturally revealed to them, or even that he guided their research, helping them discern truth from error, for the purpose of writing “an orderly account (Luke 1:3).” Here, Luke states that his gospel was an extended research project!

In that vein, I.D.E. Thomas has recently suggested one other possibility perhaps not considered in academic circles before the 1986 publication of The Omega Conspiracy. “Thomas suggests that the compiler may have written his book from texts originally written by Enoch himself. In such a case it would make perfect sense for the compiler to attach Enoch’s name to the book for which he had provided the material (4) and (6).”

Even with all of this said, there is still no “clean” explanation for Enoch’s 1000-year disappearance from even popular literature though. Despite the above reasons for not canonizing the book, it is painfully apparent that the church did in fact suppress The Book of Enoch. Only in studying both the goals and motives – positive and negative – of the Roman Church do the truest reason for Enoch’s “fall from grace” become apparent.

(But despite the arguments presented here, please note that I have no intention of bashing the early Roman Catholic Church. Always remember, they have done the world an incredible service by assembling and preserving God’s Word for the 1600+ years yet to follow. To make a distinction, the greatest sins and travesties they often stand accused – and guilty of – were not the work or intent of the earliest Church fathers, but of the corrupt political system that grew up in the centuries after the Roman system’s formation. “It was not until hundreds of years later (5th – 7th centuries), that the first vestiges of this church government rose where there was a Roman bishop as the head of the Church, making it an official Roman Church functioning similar to today’s.” (7))

Realistically however, there was also a “point” to the canon. The goal and even eternal function in assembling the earliest Bibles was NOT merely sorting out what was inspired of God and what was not. They also had the specific intent of promoting and preserving a solid doctrinal foundation for all believers in Christ. Like Paul, they had to passionately argue against Gnosticism – “the doctrine of salvation by knowledge (8),” or the idea that gaining “superior” and/or “hidden” knowledge ensures one some higher spiritual position – opposed to a simple obedient faith in Christ.

Arguing for 1 Enoch’s “proper place” today, one (seemingly) Gnostic apologist states “Enoch had found and experienced God face-to-face, something which Gnostics strive for. The Church opposed Gnostics… Experiencing God was taboo… Putting a stamp of approval on such a wild tale (Enoch) would have too many people believing that they could experience God for themselves, instead of going into a church and being told what to believe… Those who experienced visions or personal insights became dangerous to the church. They could lead people astray by supporting independent thought and actions (3).” It’s quite difficult to seriously consider this argument however, in light of the fact that a more common criticism of Catholicism is that they “worship,” or at least perhaps TOO highly esteem, those who have had profound mystical experiences with God! For that matter, the Bible is NOTHING BUT a collection of “those who experienced visions or personal insights.” It would quite a thin book if all such stories were left out!

The truth is that Gnostics “strive(d) for” experiencing God without knowing and submitting to Christ or His Body, the church. Even today, the wish to “experience God face-to-face” without Christ’s mediation (1 Timothy 2:5) is not just an honest effort to avoid false religion (of which there is much), but to not submit to any spiritual authority at all – whether it be God’s Church, God’s Word or even God’s Christ! It should always be kept in perspective that “the church” was not Rome’s, or even man’s idea. Jesus said “I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (Mt 16:18).” The early church rightly opposed Gnosticism, but beginning with Paul’s letters, not with the Roman Church. Many who passionately promote (or just reprint and sell) 1 Enoch today do so not with the intention of promoting a deeper faith in God’s inspired Word, but more with the intent of undermining the Bible’s authority – and especially the church’s. 1 Enoch’s clear historical integrity but “lack of inclusion in the Bible” is often used to “springboard” arguments for other “favorite” heretical books, left out for all the right reasons. Modern Gnostics are often fond of several other “gospels” (such as Thomas and Mary, both of which have statements and theologies that clearly contradict the more reliable works by John, Matthew, et al, proving they were NOT inspired by God). In short (oops – too late for that!), the typical Gnostic and New Age arguments have nothing to do with why The Book of Enoch was not included in the Bible, or not preserved with other ancient works. (The true “reasons why” are actually more sinister…)

The forming church also had to publicly refute and stand against (from within!) the heresy of modalism, which in part suggests that Jesus Christ is a created being – eternal nonetheless, but inferior in substance to God the Father. The Council of Nicea was expressly interested in making sure that the doctrine of the Triune Godhead was clearly expressed by the canon, and especially that it would not be misunderstood by those who would read the Scriptures. Another “motive” was to refute “Pneumatomachians – who accepted the deity of Christ but said the Holy Spirit was an impersonal force… And so it was, and we are indebted today to a 4th century Luther that stood up to define the nature of Christ and God against a flood of falsehood (8).”

To be honest, in reading Enoch there seems to be in the multitude of heavenly trips a physical distinction sometimes made between The Father and the Pre-Incarnate Son. The phrases “Lord of Spirits” , “Ancient of Days,” and “Son of Man” are used so often (perhaps interchangeably, perhaps not) that even a careful reading sometimes infers the (doctrinally acceptable – 1 Cor 15:24) separation of the eternal Godhead. On earth, “… all the fullness of the deity” was present in Jesus Christ, “the image of the invisible God.” But 1 Enoch can at minimum cause confusion to the understanding of the Godhead – hard enough to grasp even today – in a way that other authors (Moses, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Paul and John) do not when speaking of their face-to-face encounters with God. (Did any gnostics still in the audience catch that phrase?) Even without the conflicting manuscripts or possible multiple authors coming into play (which careful examination of the rest of canon shows could have been worked out actually, if they so chose), I sincerely believe that if there was a legitimate, excusable motive for not including Enoch in the Bible, this was it.

This does not excuse why we had to wait 1000 years to re-discover this book however.

So finally, with the general integrity of the Holy Scriptures, and the legitimate reasons the early Roman Catholic Church may have rejected 1 Enoch covered respectfully (and in a way palatable for modern Christian academics), let’s critically examine the real reasons behind the indisputable censure of 1 Enoch. There are many texts that – while not included as canon – have nonetheless retained their “position of honor” and even reverence among the (Western) historical Christian church. Among these are the Apocrypha (still included of course in modern Catholic Bibles – and, just FYI, even included in the original King James Bible), as well as The 12 Patriarchs, and writings too numerous to name by various “Church Fathers.” All of these have remained in a relatively high-profile position throughout church history, more or less available for both scholars and laymen to draw from when studying the ancient origins of the Christian faith. Not so with Enoch.

Yes, ANY of the above are certainly “good enough” reasons to have disqualified Enoch from canonization. But only assuming you wanted to in the first place …

With all of the evidence in, we have to own the fact that 1 Enoch was not merely “rejected for canonization.” It was buried. Flat out suppressed. It was quite intentionally lost to history, with all copies destroyed or left to rot 10 stories deep under the Vatican. Enoch was not merely “left out of the Bible.” It was dropped like a bad habit.

Okay, only for those who have come the distance, now let’s talk dirt…

Point blank, Origen was right. Enoch was suppressed and labeled as heresy specifically to hide the truth of the fallen angels’ past, present and future activity on earth.

Forget Roswell. Forget the X-Files. The most successful, enduring and damaging cover-up of “The Truth” about our planet’s frequent visitors – has come from within The Church.

Part 2 – The Sons of Seth Theory – The Early Catholic Church’s suppression of the truth of angelic abduction with special thanks to Pastor Chris Ward for his research of the ancient texts.

This article alleges the suppression of The Book of Enoch and the truth of angelic abductions by examining The Sons of Seth Theory, which was introduced approximately 400 A.D. Any resemblance found here to actual church leaders – living or dead – is purely a conspiracy theory.

As said in Part 1, the Church itself is responsible for perpetrating the most enduring and damaging cover-up in regard to abductions.

Beyond this, in accordance with prophecies made by Peter, Paul and Jesus Christ himself, they invented a completely false doctrine about the “proper interpretation” of Genesis 6. This heresy has robbed both the churched and unchurched from any hope of understanding the truth behind abductions. In short, Jews and early Christians knew full well that angels did, could and would abduct humans for the purposes of sex and hybridization, BUT these same texts also gave safeguards against such assault.

This rogue element of the early church (sort of an early Catholic Majestic 12, if you will) has left moderns at the mercy of a phenomenon they have no hope of understanding or defending themselves against. Today’s society is doomed to repeat the errors of our ancient ancestors, by once again falling prey to the Watchers’ sorceries and claims of divinity. Already, far too many are under the sway of UFO cults, claiming that they are led by “spirit-guides here to help humanity.” Many more “normal” individuals in the world of scientific UFO research and supposedly the world’s governments merely defer to their technology, by assuming the Watchers are a superior race from the stars. Citing Ezekiel 3:18 (while I’m making enemies anyway) allow me to also charge that the blood, the wrecked lives, and the eternal damnation of all souls who have fallen victim to either abductions or deceptive philosophies is on the hands of those who perpetrated – and today with knowledge maintain – these deceptive doctrines.

I realize these are astounding and damning claims, and I would not make them without offering sufficient proof. Because of the incorrect (but widely taught in seminaries) “Sons of Seth” interpretation of Genesis 6 introduced around 400 A.D., Christians start out at a disadvantage when studying the topic. For this reason, these arguments will be offered in a way meant to challenge and convince the Christian believer of these claims. Then, we’ll look over other texts which received “the Enoch treatment.” As made clear elsewhere on this site, I still maintain a belief in and respect for the integrity of scripture (the original languages that is) as God’s inspired word. The problem here is that God’s inspired word has been intentionally misrepresented by those entrusted to teach it.

The Sons of Seth Heresy

Beginning around 400 A.D., portions of the church began to take an unusual stand against the angelic interpretation of Genesis 6. Rather than teaching what the text clearly says (especially when examined in Hebrew, below), and what had been the Orthodox Jewish and early Christian view for all time previous, the idea was introduced that this passage “really” referred to the lineages of Cain and Seth, the surviving sons of Adam. They said it simply means that the “rebellious” lines of Cain were marrying the “faithful” descendants of Seth. The unfounded presumption of this theory is that ALL of Seth’s descendants were godly, while ALL of Cain’s were rebellious. While a sketchy pattern can be drawn from Genesis, it is really a ridiculous injustice to the concept of free will and of God’s dealing with individuals to dogmatically hold to this position. It further implies that Sethites were somehow immune to the effects of the Fall itself.

Conspiracy aside, the angelic interpretation itself rather assaults the sensibilities of even those good men throughout the ages who would be tempted to apologetically shirk from believing and teaching God’s word as inerrant truth. As J Timothy Unruh says “Modern Christians have often attempted to make this passage in Genesis more palatable intellectually by explaining the ‘sons of God’ as Sethites and the ‘daughters of men’ as Cainites, with their union representing the breaking down of the wall of separation between believers and unbelievers.” (9) Ultimately, this position simply does not “hold water” under even casual study. (A brief but in-depth analysis of the Sons of Seth theory is online, posted by researcher and author Chuck Missler (11). Because of this, I will only touch on the relevant points continuing from Unruh’s book, published earlier and available to be read online in it’s entirety.)

Those who hold to the humanistic Sethite explanation have never been able to suggest a sufficient reason (or even a lame one actually) as to why the children of one “immoral” parent would be physical giants however, IF both parents were otherwise normal humans. While the angelic abduction scenario seems more like science fiction to today’s intellectual Christian, the Sethite doctrine is actually easily revealed to be the fantasy!

The exact term “sons of God” (B’nai haElohim in Hebrew) used in Genesis 6:1-4, is used also in Job 1:6, 2:1 & 38:7 always referring to angels. Unfortunately, many competent Bible scholars of today still believe the “sons of God” are of human lineage. This is simply because it has been taught in seminaries for centuries, thanks to the deceptive and radically unsound doctrinal shift introduced by the church at this point in history.

Unruh continues, “The actual expression ‘sons of God’ occurs explicitly three other times (in Job, above)… and in each case the term refers indisputably to angelic beings…. There are as well implicit references to these sons of God in a number of other passages. There is no doubt in these passages the meaning applies exclusively to angels… A very similar term bar elohim is used in Daniel 3:25, and refers either to an angel or a theophany (ie, an appearance of God before the incarnation in Christ). The term ‘sons of the mighty’ (bene elim) is used in Psalm 29:1 and also Psalm 89:6, and again refers to angels. The sons of Elohim the mighty creator are confined to those creatures made directly by the Divine hand, and not born of other beings of their own order.” (9) Any amount of honest research into this topic will turn up the same findings, that someone (or some being…) from within the 3rd – 5th century church did a great violence to the literal reading of the text in concocting the Sethite theory.

Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, renowned Judaic scholar and one of the foremost authorities on the nation of Israel, agrees almost verbatim with this assessment, in his work Messianic Christology. While many who support the Sethite doctrine argue that the ENGLISH phrase son(s) of God is referred to in the Bible as simply meaning “believers” in general, there is a world of difference between the Old and New Testament use of this term. In the New Testament sense, the term is applied to those who have become “sons of God” through their faith in Christ, but by adoption (Romans 8 ; 1 John).

Fruchtenbaum writes “The term ‘sons of God’ is a general term which means ‘to be brought into existence by God’s creative act.’ Because the term carries this meaning, it is used very selectively. Throughout the Old Testament the term ‘sons of God’ is always used of angels. But some want to make Gen 6:1-4 the one exception, and there is simply no warrant for making an exception here. In the New Testament the term ‘sons of God’ is expanded. Adam is called the son of God (Luke 3:38) because he was brought into existence by creation. Believers are called sons of God (John 1:12) because believers are considered to be a new creation (Galatians 6:15). But in Genesis, the text is dealing with a specific Hebrew expression, benei elohim, and, as it is used in the Hebrew Old Testament, it is a term that is always used of angels. The distinction in this passage then is not between Sethites and Cainites, but between humanity and angels.” (10)

Fruchtenbaum, Unruh, Huie, Missler and other modern authors all offer similar academic works on these subjects, all citing the same Old & New Test passages to put forth sound and extensive rebuttals to many other objections frequently offered in defense of the Sethite interpretation, or other claims of some “human lineage.” The point here though is that the Sethite theory introduced to (unleashed upon) the Christian mindset by the Church at this time clearly denies the truth of Scripture. As Missler rightly asserts “There is no basis for restricting the text to either subset of Adam’s descendants… The entire view is contrived on a series of assumptions without Scriptural support…

“The “Sons of Elohim” saw the daughters of men that they were fair and took them wives of all that they chose. It appears that the women had little say in the matter. The domineering implication hardly suggests a godly approach to the union. Even the mention that they saw that they were attractive seems out of place if only normal biology was involved. And were the daughters of Seth so unattractive? … If the lines of Seth were so faithful, why did they perish in the flood?” (11)

Implanting these false doctrines, which survive to this day, was a long battle which some determined force from within the Church finally accomplished, and Origen and other faithful men paid the ultimate price by being labeled heretics, exiled and/or even publicly burned to initiate and execute this great “cover up.” (This tragic history is catalogued in E.C. Prophet’s Fallen Angels & The Origins of Evil; Why Church Fathers Suppressed The Book of Enoch, but see also my online disclaimers to her work).

This pseudo-theology eventually succeeded in becoming the official church dogma however, surviving even to today’s Bible institutions, despite the fact that the rest of the canon affirms the angelic interpretation many times over.

It is worth noting before moving on, that the Bible is far from the only ancient source that makes the argument that angels interbred with humans. The entire pantheon of Greco-Roman mythology is the same story retold, but romanticized by cultures who were deceived by these so-called “gods” who mated with human women to produce Hercules, etc. “The Book of Antiquities” (which you’ll find in the study of almost any pastor you ask) by ancient historian Flavius Josephus also tells us that angelic hybridization produced the “Titans” of Greco-Roman culture, as shown from this research posted online by Bryan T. Huie (btw… that Greek word “Titanos,” which was eventually translated from the Greek version of the Hebrew OT to give us “giant” in the King James Version, can also be translated “grey.” Just some food for thought). Josephus writes:

“…they now showed by their actions a double degree of wickedness; whereby they made God to be their enemy, for many angels* of God accompanied with women and begat sons that proved unjust, and despisers of all that was good, on account of the confidence they had in their own strength; for the tradition is, that these men did what resembled the acts of those whom the Grecians called giants. But Noah was very uneasy at what they did…”

Continuing from Huie’s webpage – * “This notion, that the fallen angels were, in some sense the fathers of the old giants, was the constant opinion of antiquity. As you can see, Josephus believed and recorded that “the sons of God” mentioned in Genesis 6 were fallen angels. As Whitson’s footnote acknowledges, this belief was standard in the ancient world.

“Another well-known first century Jewish writer, Philo of Alexandria, shared Josephus’ views on this topic. In his work “On the Giants,” Philo wrote: “And when the angels of God saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful, they took unto themselves wives of all them whom they chose.’ Those beings, whom other philosophers call demons, Moses usually calls angels…”(The Works of Philo, “De Gigantibus,” translated by C.D. Yonge, p. 152)

“As shown above, the evidence that “the sons of God” mentioned in Genesis 6 are fallen angels is substantial. By their sexual immorality, these angels produced offspring, which were strong and violent. The concept of a race of giants which resulted from the union of gods and humans is virtually universal in the world’s early civilizations.” (12)

The “conspiracy” from within the Church quite literally changed the history of the world – both it’s past, and it’s future. Julius Africanus, St. Augustine and many others debunked and destroyed every document relating to the angelic invasion to successfully promote their “weather balloon / crash dummy” Sethite fallacy. Before long Christianity itself would eventually erode from being a dynamic, living, supernatural faith in a miracle working God to become merely “the new intellectualism,” whose seat had moved from Athens to Rome.

The errors and ungodliness of the political elite who succeeded the 1st and 2nd century church’s apostles, evangelists and martyrs are lamented elsewhere. But as this system began to promote the “mediation” of the priesthood (1 Tim 2:5), and as the doctrines of men (?) came to replace belief in the Word of God (Mark 6-8, 13), the then “Western world” spiraled downward into it’s Dark Ages. The carefully chronicled histories of the ancients became known first as mythology, then finally as Saturday morning cartoons, and our race quite simply forgot about the truth.

But it’s out there. In July 1947, about an hour outside of Roswell, New Mexico, the gods of old returned to find a basically God-fearing, Mom & apple pie loving kind of 1940’s Americana culture – but one that had also just harnessed the most destructive force the world had ever seen, and who now held the undisputed title of “world champion superpower.”

And thanks to the old church’s now forgotten “cover-up” of the truth behind fiery chariots and abductions, we’d have NO CLUE as to what had just landed in our back yard…

But God did.

On the other side of the world, among a nearly forgotten people group that was – by destiny’s clock – just seconds away from rejoining the fray of the mighty nations of the world, a goofy little kid chased his pet sheep into a cave. And on an otherwise normal hot summer’s day in 1948, he walked out with the archeological find of the millennium.

A clay jar filled with some scrolls. Among them of course, were fragments from the book of Enoch.

As a matter of course, the Vatican paid top dollar for them.

“And I heard, but I understood not: then I said, Oh my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?

“And the angel said, Go thy way Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.”

(End of the book of Daniel 12:8-10)

From time to time Yahweh gives me a word to share with other believers, and sometimes the unbelieving. I present such a word for my readers to examine. I hope it ministers to you. If you are meant to receive it you will receive it. If you are not meant to receive it then you will not receive it. Yahweh bless all of you:

Date: February 22, 2012 – 29 Shevat, 5772 

STOP MOCKING THE TOOL OF MY CORRECTION!

I gave you eyes to look – yet you will not see.

I gave you ears to hear – yet you will not listen.

I gave you my Spirit so you could know My Heart’s intentions,

Yet you continually ignore Him and pull away from Him.

One more time I will talk to you,

One more time I will make it plain.

Yes, one more time will I issue my decree.

You have rebelled against me oh stubborn children.

You feel the rod of correction and you curse the rod with your mouth.

I sell you into slavery yet you curse your slave master.

You discern that the south winds bring the rains in the winter,

And you know that the north winds bring the heat during the summer,

But you knowingly blind yourself so that you cannot see My chastisement?

You pray for deliverance but no deliverer is sent,

You entreat me for a lighter burden but it just grows heavier.

Have you not read that I can use the wicked man as my instrument?

Have you not read My Book, My Holy Word?

Do you consider it wisdom to curse the tool of my correction?

No! It is folly that you are cursing the tool of my correction!

When you curse the tool of correction you curse your Maker, you Corrector!

Go ahead, curse your president, I will make him more wicked.

Criticize your representatives and I will make them more corrupt..

Vilify your judges and I will bring more injustice.

Point your fingers and wag your heads, it will do you no good.

Call Me, your maker “wicked” for correcting you, if you can, and criticize my motives.

Think me to he a heartless God because of the correction that I bring to you.

Call my bluff oh wicked children, you think that you know my cards?

I hold the winning hand, your last penny will come to me.

Since you spurn your corrector,

Because your pride disqualifies you from seeing the truth,

Behold I will do a a special thing!

I will hold back my rage for a short time,

I will withhold my anger for a few scant months.

Behold, I will place a mirror before each and every one of my people,

Yes, you will see yourselves as I see you.

You will see the dirt and grime that cover you,

You will see the spots and wrinkles that make you undesirable to me!

You will see why I will not take you out of this world in Rapture,

No! Not until you have been purified by persecution, by those whom you’ve aspired to become!

You will see your many, many idols in the mirror,

You will see just how unappealing your pride, envy and lust cause you to appear.

A scant few of you will see your visage in the mirror and you will mourn,

For you will see yourselves as I see you.

You will mourn from the depths of your being and you will cry the tears of repentance;

You will be forgiven and restored as My Bride.

The vast many will see themselves as being viewed in carnival mirrors,

They will see the truth as a distortion of whom they believe themselves to be.

They will mockingly cast their mirrors to the ground and break them.

These I will cast away like the chaff on a windy day and they will be consumed in the fire.

These are children that were never my children, wolves that crept into the fold to devour my sheep.

They came with words of deceptions, with the gospels of demons,

Strange children whom I have never known and who will never know me.

Coming to my people with a form of godliness but denying the giver of life.

Test them for who they are; prove them by their words and by their fruits!

Reveal them for who they are, expose them and I will remove them with a rushing wind.

Know for certain that I appoint governments and I set in place rulers, kings and presidents.

Take the fingers that point at your governmental leaders and turn them around to point at yourselves.

Let your tongues bring conviction upon you, let your words settle back on you.

For it is I the LORD that has  placed your government over you. It is I who use them for your discipline.

It is I who has placed them there and allow their evil to persist.

It is I who will remove them, when you’ve fallen to your knees, repented and are finally white as snow.

———

I see a people who are losing faith, a people who have tried meagerly to repent.

A generation of those who expect everything instantly; a spoiled people.

They have heard the word of the LORD, and they have heeded My Word.

They have seen the judgment start and have thought to end it through obedience.

I ask these children, do you think that gold can be refined without a fire?

Do you think that the clay vessel can be hardened without the potters kiln?

Do you think that steel can be hardened without being white hot and then quenched in water?

Fear not little children for all good things come with age, every success takes time.

Overnight successes become overnight failures but a craftsman works slowly, missing nothing.

Hardships are decreed for a disobedient generation and a time is set that only I know.

Seven hardships are placed upon my children and seven hardships will they endure.

Seven hardships will bring them to where I can use them for a short time.

At the end of the seventh hardship will I come to take you away to be with Me.

  • You wealth will be taken from you
  • Your comforts of this world will be removed from you.
  • Most will be homeless and exposed to the elements.
  • Famine will be all around you
  • Plague will be all around you.
  • Death will be all around you
  • You will be persecuted for My Name Sake.

Many will stand before my throne before I call the multitude unto my side.

Fear not and have faith little children, you are loved.

Faint not because you are children of My Promise.

Encourage each other and love one another and abide in My Word.

Persecution lasts but a few years, but living in My Courts lasts forever and ever.

I love you with an everlasting and unconditional love,

Yahweh Yeshua

Oh nation bent on destruction what more can I say to you?

Oh people given over to self-determination, what can be done for you?

Time after time I’ve sent correction because of your haughtiness.

Season upon season I have sent you signs of my displeasure.

I have given you a divorce decree, thinking you would see my seriousness in this matter, yet you continue in your whoredom.

Can’t you see how I mock your self-proclaimed liberty?

Won’t you see how I disregard your sovereignty?

You sing “God Bless America,” but I have removed my blessing.

Your vehicle of trade proclaims, “In God We Trust,” but it is not Me whom you trust, it is other gods.

Your gods are idols, you trust in demons and their doctrines.

You proclaim My grace, but you deny my name??

I have given you wicked rulers because that is what you deserve.

Had you loved me I would have given you righteous rulers and would have healed your land.

You love your sin and you crave your disobedience, so I have given you likeminded men and women to lead you.

Your very own corruption has cried out against you and I have answered by giving you what a corrupt people deserve.

Your system is failing, your crops are failing and soon everything will crash down.

Soon the idol that you have set up will break apart and be carried away by the winds.

Soon, yes very soon, the peoples of the earth will denigrate you, crying out that Babylon has fallen.

Yes, you are Babylon, you are the corruptor of the earth. You have taken on the ways of Satan.

I cast him to the ground and so I will cast you to the ground.

You embroil yourselves in a great election controversy. You consider the better of two evils?

You choose between evils because I, yes I allow only evil for you to choose from.

Your choices oh rebellious and wicked people are what you deserve. Both choices are bad for you.

You mock the King of Heaven and Earth. You demand that I go far away from you. I have honored your demands.

Soon you will proclaim that I have cursed your nation. I do not curse, I offer blessing, yet you spurn me so I take the blessings with me and the vacuum leaves a curse upon you. You have led to your own demise.

Stiff necked people, do you really think that you have a choice of who will lead you? You had a choice and you chose to send me away. Now I turn you over to the wicked one. Now I send the devourer and he will take away everything that you have.

Now you will stand naked, but not ashamed.

Perhaps when your bellies swell from hunger you will cry out to me, but most will curse me.

Perhaps when they lead you away to the slaughter you will beg for my help, but most will raise their finger in my direction.

Yes, you will blame Me. The corrupt dregs of the vineyard will blame the vine dresser. You will curse the King of Righteousness as you draw your last breath.

I have sent prophets to you to warn you. I have sent people to cry out in the streets about your situation, yet you ignore them. You write them off has heretics, those devoid of correct scriptural interpretation. What more can I do but to let you go, to hand you over to the devourer.

There are those who follow me, who still honor me. These will I save in the day of trouble. These will I cover with the shadow of my wings; these will I hide in the rock.

These have waited upon me, have sought me out; and these trust me. I have promised to renew their strength, to mount them up on the wings of eagles. These will run and not tire; they will do great exploits and will not faint. They will call and I will answer; they will ask and I will give. They love Me and I love them.

Do not fear my people when persecution comes. Do not faint when they take you away. Know that I am El Elyon and I am with you. I will empower you when the time comes and I will speak through you when I deem it necessary. Know in your hearts that your persecution comes from the enemy and his disciples, and not from me. You are precious in my eyes. Every part of your life was preordained by Me and certified by my Father. From the foundation of the world you have suffered along with me. You will overcome this world just like I overcame. Be of good cheer, look to Me, trust in Me. Take up my yoke and know that my promises are true.

But for you of rebellious children; those who call yourselves by My Name but are far from Me; you have no part of Me or My inheritance. Your appointment is weeping and gnashing of teeth because you have chosen to fellowship with this world rather than with me. All will get what they deserve by way of whom they have chosen. Rebellious children, your assignment will be with those who opposed Moses and Aaron. Your home will be with the rebellious children who would not listen to Noah, those who mocked him and put him out of their fellowship.

You say that this cannot be true, this could not be the God of the Bible. Have you read My Word? Do you not know that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft? Do you not know that there is reciprocity for rebellion; that evil cannot enter into My Presence?

You say, we are under grace, not the law. You however have failed to see that love, My love, the love that I exemplified is the fulfillment of the Torah. The Torah is only fulfilled if you love, and you have not loved. When I spoke through my servant Yohanan did I not refer to My brothers, the leaders of My People as a Synagogue of Satan. Even so, I refer to you rebellious children as The Church of Satan. You have no part of me, and I will crush your head, see, I tell you ahead of time.

You say that America is a Godly nation, surely nothing will befall us in a wicked manner. The sons of Jacob said that many times and what befell them? No, I have turned you over to a national insanity. The fool says in his heart that there is no God, the rebellious know that I exist and yet mock me. So I turn you over to insanity.

You say, we are not insane, we are rational and we think clearly. Oh, do you I answer back? Do sane people walk away from a righteous God who will bless them if they are obedient? Do sane people murder defenseless children? Do sane people proceed tirelessly to break my most basic of commandments? Do sane people, after watching themselves being attacked by the adherents of the doctrines of the fallen angel Allah then elect one of his followers, one of his adherents a scant seven years later? No, you are insane, just like your new god, Lucifer, Satan.

So many years ago I had my servant Paul proclaim that if anyone, even an angel proclaiming to be from Me presents a Gospel other than My early servants proclaimed, then let them be accursed. Mohammed listened to a fallen angel who proclaimed a false gospel and Islam was the result. Joseph Smith listened to an angel named Moroni, again a fallen angel and Mormonism came into being.

Both of your choices oh rebellious people, both of those whom I’ve picked for you to “vote” for are foreigners to me, men of perdition, men who believe in false doctrine and practice them with devotions. I have made foreigners rulers over you. I will not be mocked. Your transgressions now visit you and will until you are no more a united people.

In the same way that I scattered those in Babylon during the days of Nimrod so will I scatter you. Your portion will be as servants to wicked masters and you will curse me. But the faithful will cry out to me and will be heard. Those who seek me with all of their hearts will find me. And all who call upon the name of Yahweh will be saved. My Word is true and My promises are eternal.
