WHAT IS A “GENIUS” AND IS A HUMAN PARADOX A GOOD THING?
By David Ben Ya’akov

Ever since I was a small child back in the 1960’s an emphasis was put on testing students to see what their vocational skills were. Back then we were handed a test and then a piece of paper that had numbers followed by little bubbles that you would fill in with a pencil You would indicate which answer you thought to be correct for the question asked. The test would determine where your strengths lie; whether you were inclined toward the sciences, mathematics, language or the arts. Later on, in High School we were given different tests that would indicate our I.Q. or intelligence quotient. This test was the crem de la crem of tests and if you scored high on the test you were supposedly more intelligent than those who scored lower on the test. The thing that should be taken into account is that this is a test of intelligence, not necessarily common sense. For instance, I know a man who has a doctorate in Pharmacy. He could tell you the molecular structure of any drug but was not aware that on our calendar there is a leap year every four years on an even numbered year. I’ve met others who are very bright, but they have to call a road service provider if they have a flat on the highway simply because they cannot deduce how to effectively change the tire out for a spare tire.

The result of my testing was that I have a I.Q. of 137 which doesn’t put me up in the high “genius” status but indicates that I am “gifted.” I’d be the first to disagree however because sometimes it seems like the only gift I have is to make mistakes given my own strengths. It is only with Yahweh’s help that I have any gifts that are of any heavenly value. I can read the writings of Paul and totally agree, “what a wretched man I am…” In our so called high technology world and with our supposed “enlightened” society it is common for people to want to be a genius and some are saddened that they cannot ever reach that esteemed status. But is being a genius really a good thing? Does it really amount to a hill of beans where Yahweh is concerned. We read in so many places in scripture that “worldly wisdom” is a deficit in a human character and Solomon laments his wisdom in the book of Ecclesiastes chapter one:

I, the Preacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem. And I set my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven; this burdensome task God has given to the sons of man, by which they may be exercised. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind. What is crooked cannot be made straight, And what is lacking cannot be numbered. I communed with my heart, saying, “Look, I have attained greatness, and have gained more wisdom than all who were before me in Jerusalem. My heart has understood great wisdom and knowledge.” And I set my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is grasping for the wind. For in much wisdom is much grief, And he who increases knowledge increases sorrow. Ecclesiastes 1:12-18

I don’t think that anyone could argue that Solomon was a very intelligent. I hesitate to call him a genius because of the origins of the word “genius” and I do not think that Yahweh would bring “genius” upon a man who asked Him for wisdom. So, I will state that Solomon was a man filled with wisdom, endowed by Yahweh and there probably has never been a person with that much knowledge before or after Solomon lived. I also believe that Solomon, who was anointed by a prophet of Yahweh, was filled with the Holy Spirit by whose means the intelligence came to him. With this in mind, we see the effects of being full of wisdom. The result of Solomon’s wisdom is that he lived a miserable life because he allowed his possession of wisdom to cause pride in his life and it caused him to fall spiritually, physically and in his monarchy.

A couple of months ago I had a running discussion with a woman who claimed that she was able to study scripture because she is a genius. If you’ve read this blog prior to this entry you know all about that discussion. There are many people running around, sort of running amok with their own knowledge of what Yahweh wants us to know. They are cunning enough to twist scripture in such a manner that they can make almost anyone believe that what they are saying is true. This particular woman has made quite a few assertions that the words, dreams and visions that I have been given from Yahweh are not from Yahweh, but from a familiar spirit. I’ll not even address that assertion much because both time and Yahweh will prove His words to be true no matter how hard she tries to vilify me and ascribe the words of Yahweh and His Spirit to the works of the demonic. Scripture warns people about doing that very thing, so that is in His hands for Him to meet out when He sees fit.

Recently my wife and I were shopping in a very popular second-hand store here in Eugene. They have an excellent book section and we’re there so much that the workers in the store almost know our names by heart. Recently, my wife, who shares a like in word origins as I do, picked up a book about word etymologies (origins) and when I was thumbing through the book the pages fell open to the word “genius.” Because of all that happened a couple of months ago I decided to look into the origins of this word to see where it comes from. To my surprise, I found that Paradox Brown, the one who claims to be able to discern scripture because she is a genius, is in fact a genius, and that is not a good thing. This word, as I will illustrate below, has diabolical origins. To say the least, I found solace in the meaning of this word as it applies to this woman and it explains to me why she is out to destroy me and my ministry, as well as Jim Wilhelmsen and his ministry. When you see that “genius” is really a demonic spirit you’ll come to one of two conclusions. First, if you have been labeled a genius, you’ll want to change your label to something that is more godly. Second, if you have felt bad that you were never labeled to have a genius I.Q., you will thank Yahweh that you are normal and that you have not been labeled as demon possessed. Here is the definition of “genius” as defined by the etymology book:

—————–

Entmology of the word “Genius”
The Merriam Webster New Book of Word Histories
Copyright 1991 by Merriam Webster Inc
PP 192-193

Genius: According to ancient Greek mythology a daimõn is a supernatural being whose nature is intermediate between that of a god and that of a man. It was believed that at birth each person is assigned one of these spirits to act as a guardian throughout his life. The standard Latin translation of daimõn was genius, from gignere, ‘to beget’. Latin also borrowed the Greek word in the form of daemon ‘spirit’, which in Late Latin was often restricted to mean an evil spirit. Genius in the sense of ‘attendant spirit’ was borrowed from Latin into Middle English in the early fifteenth century.

Part of the role of the tutelary genus was to guard, if not actually determine, a person’s character; thus in the sixteenth century genius came to be used in direct reference to a person’s inclination or bent of mind, as in Sir Philip Sidney’s Defense of Poetry (1595); “A Poet, no industrie can make, if his owne Genius bee not carried vnto it.” In the next century this led to thee sense of ‘a strongly marked aptitude’. This sense of genius was often used of poets and artists, and in England in the eighteenth century the Romantics began to use genius to mean ‘an extraordinary native intellectual power’, especially as manifested in an unusual capacity for creative activity of any kind.

The first translation of the Arabian Nights from Arabic into French rendered the Arabic jinnĩy, meaning ‘spirit’ or ‘demon’, as French génie, meaning the same as English genius. The translators were no doubt influenced by the similarities between the Arabic and French words in both pronunciation and meaning. Thus it is from French that English gets the form genie for a spirit such as appeared to Aladdin when he rubbed the magic lamp.

A variant form, jinni, was borrowed directly from the Arabic. In that language the plural of jinniy is jinn, and this has yielded (in differing styles of transliteration from the Arabic alphabet) the English variants of jinn and djinn.
[L, fr. gignere to beget]

Another thing that people like to do is to label themselves as being mysterious, something that cannot be understood by many and only by those with high intellect. This is certainly an attitude of pride; a character flaw that is addressed by scripture as something that makes men fall by the wayside and can lead to total separation from Yahweh:

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18

People tend to like to put prefixes and suffixes in their names to show people that they have some sort of authority. In Christian circles we see people with titles such as Reverend, Bishop, Monsignor and even Pope, all titles to show increasing authority. They tend to use such authority to lord that authority over people. If you don’t think that I’m correct, walk up to a Catholic Priest and tell him that Yeshua said that we shouldn’t call anyone on Earth “Father…” You’ll be treated like an imbecile and told to go away. Challenge the authority of any of the people listed above and you’ll be seen as insolent and defiant and you will be chastised and labeled as an infidel.

In the worldly scheme of things people who are educated put labels behind their names to show how educated they are. They range from Associate’s degrees, Bachelor’s degrees, Masters Degrees and the ultimate Doctorate degree. They usually put their degrees as suffix’s; AS, BS. MS. or PhD to assert their intelligence. The lower the degree, the more humble. The higher, the less humble. Let me throw in a caveat here. There are many wonderful and humble people who have degrees that do not behave with a superiority complex, so I’m not lumping all people with degrees in a list of narcissists.

There are others however that tend to go the route of the “mysterious” or the “unknowable” One such person uses the name “Paradox.” This name is reminiscent of the hippy days when names like Aquarius Paradise, and Genesis Revelation (real names of people I’ve met) were the norm. These folks were named by their hippie parents of course, but the one thing that they both loved was when people would ask them about their names. They would revel in the fact that their names were unusual and their names made them unique among the rest of the population. Do you see pride creeping in here?

Why would someone take on the pseudonym “Paradox?” Well, one would come to the conclusion right away that this person wants to be surrounded in mystery. They would want to have an occult (secret) meaning and they would want people to know that only if they were a “genius” could they figure out what this person is really all about, but still you would never really know their character. In essence, they want to reflect the idea that they are unknowable. Well, in scripture we know that all people are knowable; we are sinners in need of salvation. We always tend to lean toward the lowest common denominator and as Paul said, “the things I want to do I don’t do and the things don’t want to do I tend to do.” My paraphrase of course. There is only one person who is totally unknowable; that person is Yahweh:

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9

We can know the character of Yahweh to some degree through scripture and we can know him more intimately through a relationship with him through Yeshua and we can know even more by way of revelation from the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit), and some day we will know Him better when we are like Him:

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:2

Yahweh is not a God of mysteries, as some make themselves out to be. The mystery of God has been revealed through Yeshua Ha Mashiach:

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 1 Timothy 3:16

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 1 Corinthians 14:33

For any man or woman to want to wrap themselves with a “mysterious” facade it has to be rooted in an occult or demonic origin. So, how could one define “paradox?” An excellent definition can be found at allwords.com which borrows from several sources and uses analogies to explain this difficult word:

————

PARADOX
noun
A statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is actually true.
It is an interesting paradox that drinking a lot of water can often make you feel thirsty.
An apparently true statement that appears to lead to a contradiction or to circumstances that defy intuition.
Not having a fashion is a fashion; that’s a paradox.

<!–there is no such term in mathematics; in any case, this is equivalent to the first definition – Paul G, 2005-08-17

(mathematics) a conclusion based on undefined functions

Example: (2 x 0) = (3 x 0) therefore (dividing both sides by zero) 2 = 3–>
a person or thing showing contradictory property, properties
He is a ; you would not expect him in that political party.

A statement that leads to an infinite and instant contradiction.

If a court ruled that common law no longer existed, then the only thing that made that ruling binding was common law, which means that the ruling instantly destroys what lets it exist, which means it no longer exists, which means common law can exist again, which means the ruling can exist again, which means common law doesn’t exist anymore because of the ruling, which means the ruling doesn’t exist, etc.

Translations:
Dutch: paradox , tegenspraak
French: paradoxe , antinomie
German: Paradox Paradoxon
Italian: paradosso
Spanish: paradoja

Etymology: paradoxum, from (paradoxos), “aside belief”
[http://www.allwords.com/word-paradox.html]

————

I think in essence a paradox is using a backdoor to define something that is perfectly clear to those who can see plainly. Scripture uses paradox’s many times. For instance, we’re in the world but not of the world; that is a paradox. Predestination is another paradox. We’re told in scripture that the Elect have been chosen from before the foundation of the world yet we’re told to preach the Gospel of Yeshua to every creature. Well, that might sound confusing, but from Yahweh perspective, He’s known the saved from before time began because He is outside of time and space and sees the beginning from the end. For Him, spacial time has had its beginning and has ended already; the books have been opened and history has been completed. We do not know who the Elect is and we are supposed to preach to every creature because we do not have Yahweh’s knowledge of who is saved and by us preaching to every creature we give no man an excuse at the end of time. Yahweh is permitted to use a paradox because He knows the answer because He created the paradox. He reveals the mysteries of the paradox so that His people and the goyim (nations) will know that He is supreme.

So, for a person to label themselves as a paradox, or as someone who can define and discern paradox’s is quite a pompous claim; almost claiming to be a god. This would tie in with a “genius” spirit or a jinn, as the Arabic origins define it. Jinns (demons) have always tried to deceive mankind since they came into being as the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim. If a person revels in being a “genius” that revelry is pride; pride is the sin that caused Lucifer to fall from Yahweh’s favor. You could say that Satan is the ultimate “genius” seeing that he is the “father” of the demons and the father of all lies and deception.

So what have we determined here? We have determined that being labeled a genius isn’t necessarily a good thing and that if you revel in being a genius you might have more serious problems than you ever imagined. We have determined that labeling oneself is also an act of pride if that label is reveled or demands that one be revered. We have to do one more thing however. As believers in Yeshua, what do we do with such people especially if they claim to be all knowing and cannot be taught nor confess that they can be wrong. What do we do if they set out to destroy us, to lord their label over us and to claim that their worldly wisdom allows them to teach, preach or (God forbid) wrongfully discern between right and wrong.

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Ephesians 5:6-13

And in conclusion, let us always remember and put into practice the words of our beloved Adonai, our Yahweh Yeshua, who when talking about false teachers said thus:

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Matthew 7:15-29

NOT ONE NATION UNDER GOD

A Word from Yahweh for America and His People in America

 

Thus Says Yahweh:

One Nation Under God you declare;

In God We Trust you inscribe on your currency.

Yes, I have called you rebellious and a stiff-necked people, yet you did not listen.

I declared to you my divorce decree, yet you still carry my name?

Whoremongering nation filled with idols and idolatry, I reject you.

The sins of your nation rise up to heaven, the stench of abomination.

Your candidates cry from their pulpits that you will rebuild?

I declare from my throne that you will continue in decay; you will grow in rebellion.

For every building that you raise in rebellion to me, ten buildings will fall until all is destroyed.

I have sent disasters to your shores and you call them Acts of God, which they are.

You have ignored my attempts of storms, tempests, fires, droughts and ground trembling.

Had you not been decayed, rotten to the core of your being you too would tremble.

You too would cry to Me to heal your land and bring you peace.

You have rejected me and I have rejected you; it can be no other way.

The Prince of Babylon now hovers over your land, yet you still call yourselves my people?

Know for sure that I have allowed a strong spirit of insanity; a national insanity to overtake you.

Your decisions will never again be those of a people with sound minds and humble hearts.

Behold war approaches your land, brother against brother, family against family.

I will bring foreigners to further your distress and you will not know who is for you,

Nor will you know who is against you. Your minds will reel in agony and distress,

You will remember the days of confusion and long for them; your hearts will fail you.

You claim that you can rebuild, that you can overcome the calamity that will come to you,

Yet, this will only be a delusion that I will allow; one that I will cast upon your land.

You will turn against the nation that you have shadowed under your wings, my people Israel.

You will make alliances with the enemies of my people and you yourself will seek to destroy Jacob.

You will align with the armies that I have chosen to come against My People, My Heritage.

You will die with them on the hills of Israel, your bodies food for the wild birds.

You will no longer be safe in your haven beyond the sea and across the great ocean.

Fire will rain down on your cities and a vast many will be consumed.

The foolish will try to hide in the mountains but the mountains will be their tombs.

There is no place where you can escape from my judgments oh militant children;

In the heavens I will seek you out and in the depths of the earth I will find you.

Even in the depths of the sea I will put you to the sword.

Those remaining will be herded into pens like sheep being readied for the slaughter.

There you will wilt away as the flower in the drought, there you will blow away like the chaff on the threshing floor.

 

I have prepared a remnant that has not bowed down to the idols that infest your land,

I have sanctified a people who have given themselves to me.

These will I tend to like a shepherd and these I will move to my glorious land.

Soon, many who never knew that they were of my ancient family will go to Israel.

They will go at first weeping for the great loss that has occurred,

But, I will turn their sorrow to joy and replace their sackcloth will fine linen, and will shoe their bare feet.

 

The times of the Goyim are over I have decreed and now the recompense must occur.

For all that they have done to my people Israel there will be retribution; hell will literally rise to Earth’s surface,

For all that they have done to my remnant, my sanctified sheep, there will be retribution; a time of great sorrow,

Blood and fire and billows of smoke will be the end of many.

See America, a once proud nation, once filled with children that once loved and served me.

See that it has become Babylon, the Harlot of Nations.

I have shouted my last cry to bring you to repentance; I have given you wicked rulers to rule over you.

I have caused YOU to ask them to serve you and you have gladly placed their yoke upon yourselves.

So now you are beasts of burden for a harsh task master, however your sorrows will be greatly multiplied.

Perhaps when he legislates that you have to bow down to his idol Allah you will then understand.

I will bring foreigners to further your distress and you will not know who is for y;E@>C;?RPh!̳j

o0Qou,

Nor will you know who is against you. Your minds will reel in agony and distress,

You will remember the days of confusion and long for them; your hearts will fail you.

You claim that you can rebuild, that you can overcome the calamity that will ca, sans-serif;”>Perhaps when he takes all that you own and gives it to others you will remember who I am and how I once loved you.

Now your insanity causes you to love the one who places his heavy yoke on you.

Go to the pit in regret; enter torments cursing Me because of your unfaithfulness.

Blame me in your rebelliousness for the light of my love for you snuffed out several years back.

I divorced you, not you me and I left you only your shame and nakedness, and you rejoiced.

You’ll find no rest, no sleep and no comfort with the one that you have chosen,

And you will have nothing but misery as you drink sour milk from the tit of your keeper.

You will run to him to heal your sores and he will heal them but at what price?

You will ask him to take away your infirmities, but at what price?

In your old age he will not listen to you, you will be of no use to him.

On your deathbed he will cast you away, a burden to his society will you be.

 

I have kept a remnant, and have preserved a people who love me with an undying love.

These I will reward with rewards that they could have never imagined,

Rewards that the mind of men cannot possibly fathom will rain down on them.

Be comforted my dear ones as you live amongst those who receive my punishment.

For a day will come for me to steal you away from this wicked world.

You will have to endure their cruelty, but look to me for comfort for in me will you find rest.

In me will you stay the storm and come out unharmed. In me the wind will not harm you.

In me the heat will not harm you nor will any of my punishments and retributions touch you.

Very soon the Son of Perdition will be revealed, wicked and full of fury.

The world will wonder after him, they will accept him and they will murder for him.

Through me you will do wonderful exploits that will amaze even this most wicked of creature,

And, you will confound him even to the point of welling up in him great anger at your deeds.

Stay fast those that I love and keep your faith in me.

Though men will hate you and seek to destroy you, it is but for a short time and the trumpet will sound.

And then and only then, when you are out of the way will I rain my vengeance against a wicked world.

Though they harm you a time, times and half a time they will not have the satisfaction of winning;

For my judgments on Sodom and Gomorrah and all of the Cities of The Plain will be considered trite

When compared to what lies in state for a world that rebels against me and nations that spurn me.

For after that time it will no longer be said, “Just as Yahweh destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah…”

But in the stead it will be said, “Just as Yahweh judged a rebellious world…”

The day is coming when My Glory, and My Glory alone will be spoken of and I, only I will be worshipped.

Remember this those of you who love Me, that this world is not your home nor is it your kingdom.

If any man is in Me, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, he or she is a new creature; you are citizens of My Kingdom.

There is no longer any division, all are one in Me.

Love one another because this is what the world sees and this is what convicts the world of sin.

The love that you exhibit allows the Ruach Ha Kodesh to convict and to bring many to faith in Me.

Talk to me often, trust in me and always remember that this world is temporary,

But your life in My Kingdom is eternal. I will wipe every tear from every eye and My Love Endures Forever.

Yeshua Ha Mashiach.

I sat in shock as Yahweh was giving me the prophetic word that precedes this blog entry. I was at home during election day, November 06, 2012 and even in the morning I felt an uneasiness about our nation and our future. Having married again and having the responsibilities of being blessed with children, son’s in-law and grandchildren through my union with my new wife I have great concern. I’ve never been anxious about what the future held because I know that our God is a God of eternity and He knows the end from the beginning and our current state is history to him, so to speak; however I had an uneasiness. I was also aware through other words that Yahweh had given to me that Obama would win a second term, simply because our nation is being judged by Yahweh for our turning away from Him (Yahweh), and that Obama is a tool of Yahweh’s correction of this nation and his actions might possibly lead to a national repentance.

I finished writing what Yahweh had me write, posted it and settled in for what I knew was going to happen. You see, I know about the shadow government, and I know also that although they think that they are accomplishing their own will, and the will of their master Satan, I also know that Yahweh allows these things to happen to accomplish His ultimate goal. It’s a game of cosmic chess where the pieces think that they are moving themselves around however they do not realize that Yahweh is the one moving the pieces and in the end He will checkmate them with the return of Yeshua in the second advent. It is a lot easier and more soothing to realize this; it really helps me to understand and accept all that is going on; especially the things that I know I cannot change.

At the same time, that doesn’t mean that accepting one thing or another is an easy thing to do. I stood at my station at work all day on the 7th of November pondering what happened. I thought that surely the American people were smart enough to see what four years of Obama had gotten them; but the words of judgment echoed in the background. I was truly sad yet understanding at the same time; two emotions that don’t work well in the human mind. My mind was fighting my heart. I remember thinking “goodness Yahweh, why does this have to happen in my lifetime?” It was right then that the proverbial bells rang and the light bulb lit up above my head; Yahweh was giving me a revelation and it finally clicked.

I remember stealing a few seconds and writing down a few points at my work station so that I would not forget, which seems to happen more as I get older. Right about then the rock station that they play at work started to play post-election Obama speeches and I left the room as the left had their moment of adulation over the airwaves. I came back into the room mumbling something like, “is it over yet.” A woman that I worked with said “you mean, my man?” I said yes and turned back to work. The woman is a lesbian and being mature, about my age we know our differences and have agreed to disagree on some things so we get along pretty good. Again it hit me, the words “I” and “Me” resounded within my being and things began to click again.

As I stood there other memories came back to recall. I remembered a commercial with an African American woman praising Obama because she possessed a cell phone because of him. I remembered Muslims praising him because they believe that Obama would champion their cause. Then I remembered women praising Obama because he was a supposed advocate for woman’s rights. Then there was the union workers, all having Obama bumper stickers on their cars and how they championed Obama on television and in the news. The list went on and on and again the words, “I” and “me” echoed in the background. And finally, those words came back to me; “Yahweh, how can you allow this to happen while I’m alive, while my generation lives. You see, although our generation is pretty messed up there are many of us who work hard and eek out a living for ourselves and our families. We pay our fair share of taxes to our states and the federal government and basically, we shoulder the burden for all of the social programs that support those who either can’t or won’t take on the burden of supporting society. However, on the other hand, we’re also one of the most self centered generations that ever existed, only exceeded in pride and arrogance by those generations that have followed us.

In Hebrew Scripture we are told that the Church is like a body, and that all members are of one body and that the body needs all of the members to survive and that if a certain body part refuses to work with the other then it is useless because they do the body no real good although it is sustained by the rest of the body. For instance, if you’re right handed and your right hand stops working you cannot write with it, you cannot eat with it and you cannot do all of the things that you depended on your right hand to do. Since your right hand is so important (if you are right handed of course) this malady will affect the whole body in a very detrimental way.

In your body your nervous system has two different parts, one called the autonomic, the system that controls things automatically like blinking of your eyes or the functions of most organs. You don’t have to think for these things to happen. The other system is the sympathetic nervous system. I want a glass of water because I’m thirsty so I think about getting up and walking into the kitchen for the drink. I will myself to get up out of the seat and I will my legs to move toward the kitchen and so on.

When all things in a body are working correctly then we are said to be healthy. There are times however when some cells in a body, for some reason decide that they want to act differently and have things their own way. They realize that they can have their own way and they have convinced the body that there is nothing wrong by them acting this way. They continue to rebel against the natural order of the body and grow rapidly. The body realizes that these cells or the cell mass needs more to grow and deprives some of the obedient cells of the nutrients that they need. In many cases the disobedient cells break off and settle in other parts of the body and they start to think that they are special and more deserving than the other normal cells. The condition above is commonly called cancer and the cells that move to other places are called metastasis. The condition will, in time consume the body, making it weak and the body will die because the cancer literally consumed the body. The cancer cell is the “I” and the “me” of the body.

As I mentioned above, in the Hebrew Scriptures, the Apostle Paul tells us constantly about being one body and that we’re all supposed to act as we’re one body part and work in unison with the rest of the body, the head being Mashiach Yeshua. We’re also taught that “pride” is a sin and that humility and contriteness are virtues. The intentions of the founding fathers of our nation was that all people are created equals, the same as what the scriptures tell us. Their intent was that under constitutional law every person would be allowed to flourish and that every person would contribute to the good of the nation. Every person was part of one body. They knew perfectly well that:

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18

As time progressed in our Republic we began to see that certain members of the body were not treated equally, some were held as slaves and a great war occurred, for many reasons, one of them being that slavery would end. Later women demanded the right to vote and be equal citizens and American society again experienced upheaval until woman were afforded equal rights with men. Later on other things would surface and corrections were made. The main crux of this was that equality was longed for; again, equality and not special recognition.

The Sixties saw many changes in societal revolution. People demanded to be special groups and to be treated and/or esteemed above others. It was no longer about equality, but about special endowments because of what they saw as unfair treatment. In the 50’s and 60’s people who lived in America were Americans, they had no subset to speak of. However in the late 60’s people started to segregate into separate groups with the word “American” as a suffix to their identity. Then homosexuals who had been silent for years began to demand special treatment, defining themselves as an abused group of people. About this same time immigrants started to arrive from all over the world bringing with them their own cultures, religions and ways. Whereas before people would immigrate to America to be assimilated, to forget their past and to become Americans, they now kept their identity, refused to assimilate, and became separate entities within America. It was if the words of John F. Kennedy were never heard when he said forcefully in a speech:

“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

It seems as though that whole phrase has been turned around to say:

“Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your country can do for you.”

Perhaps Kennedy was privy to information of what the Illuminati had for our nation and tried to turn things around before they happened, but we’ll never know.

So one will probably think that I am calling African Americans, women and immigrants a cancer on our society. That is so far from the truth. What I am saying is that when people demand special attention, time and time again, and when they refuse to be part of the body, and demand to be recognized as their own entities within a larger entity then those actions are a cancer in a society. When one body part demands that they have more rights than other parts of the body then the body tends to succor the needs of their demands; but getting free things from government is never enough because when a person realizes that they can get something for free they will surely try to get something else for free and soon society is struggling to meet the needs of a few instead of the many. When one person or group succeeds at this then other groups tend to try the same thing and this continues until the body cannot sustain itself because the rebel cells have consumed all of the nutrients that the body needs. The body dies.

America one claimed that it was “one nation under God,” and it was when America revered Yahweh and recognized him as our Sovereign. In subsequent years the nation has told Yahweh to go away, that they have no need for Him. Being a gentleman, He walks away. With him the body would have had immeasurable nutrients and he could have sustained us no matter what came against us; he strengthened our immune system. Without him, a cancer has been allowed to spread, and the cancer has petitioned to a man to cure its ills; a man that could care less if the body lived; a doctor who says that he is a specialist in healing, but cannot cure. This doctor, instead of curing the patient will nourish the spreading cancer by supplying it with the nourishment of overspending and even more promises that he cannot keep, nor does he intend to. He wants to fundamentally transform the once healthy body so that the whole body becomes one large vessel of cancer.

But wait one moment, we cannot blame the doctor. We (speaking of American society) spurned the one who kept us alive, the one who could save. A majority of the body went to this doctor because they believed his credentials and believed that he could cure our ills. In the Book of 1 Samuel we hear of another such doctor, or shall I call him a king.

So Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who asked him for a king.  And he said, “This will be the behavior of the king who will reign over you: He will take your sons and appoint them for his own chariots and to be his horsemen, and some will run before his chariots. He will appoint captains over his thousands and captains over his fifties, will set some to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and some to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers, cooks, and bakers. And he will take the best of your fields, your vineyards, and your olive groves, and give them to his servants. He will take a tenth of your grain and your vintage, and give it to his officers and servants. And he will take your male servants, your female servants, your finest young men,and your donkeys, and put them to his work. He will take a tenth of your sheep. And you will be his servants. And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the Lord will not hear you in that day.” 1 Samuel 8:1-18

America has gotten the King that she has asked for. We never listened to the phrase, “be careful what you ask for, you might get it.” Yahweh has given us what we deserve, his tool of correction, and the silly thing is that most people asked for this king; most expect him to be a deliverer however, one day in the future, when we sit in retrospection we will see that in want of something new, we have gotten something that we never expected or wanted, the new slavery. Because of a national insanity, people have falsely come to a conclusion that they can get something (or everything) for nothing; exactly what a cancer does. Yahweh has been told to leave, to go away and He did; but when he did he left a large vacuum, a void that others will fill. These others will be enslavers, wicked taskmasters because when they have enticed people in they are hopelessly trapped.

Today there are many people on social assistance. These are people of all walks of life, all races and all tongues. Many have subsisted off of the government for generations. Publically they might be elated about sucking off the government tit, but deep down they know that they are in a new form of slavery. It is a slavery where the slave does not even notice that he or she is a slave, not until the lender calls in the loan, so to speak. Hebrew Scriptures talk about this:

The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender. Proverbs 22:7

There was a day when jobs were more plentiful and people could walk out of this new slavery, they could decide not to “borrow” from the government and they knew that nothing was really “free.” Today however this mentality has changed and many jobs have been shipped overseas so that employment is hard to find, even for those who seek it. The slave auction tightens its hold now on all Americans, not just those who sought free nourishment. Within four years the Republic will be dead and will be totally replaced by the socialist slave state and America will join with all of the other cancer bodies around the globe. And why did this happen? Well, the root cause is that in our freedom we became too free. We grew up in a sense and wanted to move out of our Father’s house to be entities of our own. We did just what the Prodigal Son did; we took our inheritance from Father Elohim and spent it on riotous living. Can America come back? Can the cancer be cured; perhaps. The thing is that America, and the American Church need to realize that they are riddled with cancer and they will need to realize that the cure isn’t socialized medicine, nor can it come from any man; it can only come from the giver of life and the creator of all things. His name is Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus Christ), whom when He healed the sick and infirm during His first advent many times followed the healing with the words, “go and sin no more.” Is America willing to follow that prescription? Time will only tell I guess.

The healing will only start when Yahweh’s Church repents of its sins. Scripture is quite clear that:

For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17

Yeshua’s Church, the Spiritual Israel must first come to grips that it has sinned, that it is sick with cancer and that it can be healed. Even Yeshua might find it hard to issue forth a call for America or any other nation to come to grips with its condition when His own Body is in need of a repentance and healing. He does promise however that:

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

And until the Church realizes that it is full of idolatry (and I’m not referring to the Catholic Church only) then the following will continue to occur:

And the Lord said to me, “Next, take for yourself the implements of a foolish shepherd.  For indeed I will raise up a shepherd in the land who will not care for those who are cut off, nor seek the young, nor heal those that are broken, nor feed those that still stand. But he will eat the flesh of the fat and tear their hooves in pieces. Zechariah 11:15

I hope that you know Yeshua and if you don’t know him you will come to know Him. He’s the only true deliverer. In closing, reflect on the following scripture and I hope it causes many to realize that each person’s pride and arrogance has gotten us what we had and still have.

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith;  but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was. 2 Timothy 3:1-9

You know, sometimes I think that I’ve been alive too long. In my short 54 years here on earth we’ve gone from doing math on paper to calculators. We’ve gone from propeller driven airplanes to exploring other planets. We’ve gone from simple typewriters to complex computers that will produce documents that we never dreamed we could produce before. We have really advanced and in many ways that is a good thing.

The change that we’ve seen is really nothing compared to the changes that my grandparents saw. My paternal grandmother was born in 1904 and my grandfather was born in 1906. In their time it was not acceptable for an older woman to marry a younger man, even if it was only by two years. Bad grandparents!! Just kidding of course. In their day the automobile was just getting known and people still rode around on horses, and yes, even in New Jersey. I can only imagine what they pondered as they saw their first car, then their first airplane. I can only wonder what they thought as they read of Hitler launching rockets at Great Britain and hearing about jet aircraft. Then, they saw that we were launching satellites into space and we landed a man on the moon.

But with all of the advances that both our forefathers saw and that we have seen our lifetime we have seen a lot of degradation of society. My grandparents grew up to watch the flappers and other partygoers in the 1920’s challenging what was a decent and moral society. They got to witness the toll that alcohol had taken on society when so many rebelled over Prohibition. They, along with their children got to see how evil men can be toward other men when reports of the Nazi Genocide finally was revealed. They had to witness as innocent young men went to war to fight against Nazism and later Communism; many of which never came back or returned in body bags.

Later my generation came along and we rebelled against our fathers. Many of us experimented with sex, drugs and Rock and Roll and got ourselves into a real mess. Society had changed and science had supplied all of the answers. Yahweh was forsaken because in the eyes of most, science could cure all of our ills. If we had a bad day we’d just come home and smoke a joint and all of our problems just melted away, at least for a few moments. Got bad grades in school; don’t blame it on yourself, it was the teacher’s fault. The cops started following us around; well they were just part of the fascist machine. We all just threw personal responsibility out the window. If someone was just plain weird; well that was just their thing, they weren’t hurting anyone. Relativism replaced Yahweh in all portions of our society and nobody seemed to care and if anyone did care they were considered judgmental, critical and they were told to just chill out. Compromising wasn’t frowned upon anymore, it was encouraged and as long as you agreed with what the media was inculcating you with you were okay, fine, accepted.

Now notice that what I was talking above was worldly living; a life outside of Yahweh and one that probably bears similarity to many of you who are Born Again in Yeshua and have been changed into a new creature. Let me emphasize again; a NEW CREATURE

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

You know, Yahweh has allowed me to be able to use analogies to prove points and I’m grateful to him for giving me that ability. To me things seem very clear where serving Yahweh is concerned. I used to be very good at playing word games before I was saved and I could twist anything around that I wanted to in order to get my own way. When I came to faith in Yeshua I didn’t retain that “art” but I remember it and how it is used to deceive and water down the truth. This sort of thing was exemplified by then President Clinton during his testimony concerning his having an affair with Monika Lewinsky. Allegedly some of Clinton’s chief advisors asked him during the affair if he was (“is” at the time) having an affair. Clinton’s response in his testimony:

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the–if he–if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not–that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement….Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.”

It is very important to, when asking people who are perpetual liars a question, ask them very precise questions. The correct question for such a person is, “have you ever in the past, the past being every day before right now and up till the time that I asked this question, had an affair with Monica Lewinsky?” But then of course you’d have to be very precise with defining the word affair in the meaning that you are curious about.

The whole reason why I went into the Clinton thing is to state that word play is common. It isn’t just a worldly thing either but is something that has been picked up by the church. If a brother wrongs you, you are supposed to approach the brother and talk to him. However, in the Body of Mashiach if you do so nowadays you are being unloving and judgmental. In the eyes of many you’re supposed to just let it go, forgive and forget. I mean, that is what we eventually do anyway because whether the brother/sister accepts what you have to say and they repent or not we are to forgive. However, it is very scriptural, even commanded by Yeshua Himself to approach a brother. It is a fact that political correctness has infiltrated the Church and has polluted the Church so in many cases it supersedes the Scriptures.

Oh, the conversations I’ve had with people. I once approached a sister about reading from the horoscopes. I showed her scripturally why it was wrong. She replied to me that she knew that they are not real and that she did it just for fun. It was her way of telling me to dummy up. I told her that reading a porn novel wasn’t real and asked her if she would read that too. She said that she wouldn’t. There is no level structure for sin and/or disobedience; either something is correct or it isn’t. Paul said that all things are lawful, but not all things were expedient. The enemy likes us to think that some things won’t harm us; they’re just for fun; but in fact dabbling in ungodly things is rebellion against Yahweh. Scripture says that rebellion is:

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. 1 Samuel 15:23

Yahweh was speaking to King Saul. This whole thing came about after Saul dabbled with the occult and summoned up the spirit of Samuel through the Witch of Endor. I know, some are saying that this was in the Old Testament, and now we’re not under Law, but under Grace, and that is true. Remember, all things are lawful, but not all things are expedient. In modern terms that is saying, “sure, you can go out and do anything you want, but that does not mean that Yahweh approves of it nor does it mean that it will be good for you, your life and your soul.” He was saying that doing wrong things in your life, although it is covered by grace, could impact your life here on earth and eternally in a very negative manner. In other words, you can do what you want, but if it’s wrong don’t expect Yahweh to bless it or honor it and don’t go complaining to Him when your life turns into one big mess because of your disobedience.

Yahweh, in His Word, is also quite emphatic about our walking with Him and not walking a fence when it comes to serving Him. He was quite angry with those who rebelled at the foot of Mount Sinai, putting many of them to the sword. Yahweh told Moshe that He wanted to destroy Israel entirely but Moshe pleaded for mercy toward the people and Yahweh recanted. Yahweh sent the ten northern Tribes of Israel into exile because they were so wicked, walking the line and serving two masters. Later he sent Judah into a 70 year exile in Babylon; their sin that they said they were Yahweh’s people while they sacrificed to idols and fallen angels. Yahweh is serious about His relationship with people whom He has set apart for himself and it grieves Him when they pay Him lip service and worship other beings (today we call this living for the world) more than we care for Him.

I can’t express in strong enough words how He feels about wishy washy believers who accept the ways of the world yet pay Him lip service only. In this world, if a husband loves his wife with all of his heart and his wife says that she love him in word but doesn’t live it in deed then the husband feels sorrow. It works the same way for the wife that pours herself out for relationship with her husband and gets only lip service in return; she is devastated. We understand earthly relationships because we live them every day; yet people somehow think that it is okay for them to commit infidelity with their relationship with Yahweh; they play the “grace” card to dismiss their misdeeds toward their creator; or they will use the same card to write off the actions of others because of grace, and because they don’t want to be judgmental. Yeshua told us several times that it is okay to judge a person by their fruit:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Matthew 7:15-29

Just as a side note to the scripture above, we cannot forget that “His words” that he talks about above aren’t just what he was speaking then, but being the author and Spirit behind the whole Bible, all of it are words that we need to act upon.

Furthermore, Yeshua tells us in Matthew Chapter six:

But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:23-24

Yeshua is telling us in the scripture that if you look at darkness you will become darkness; darkness here being equated with being a compromiser with the world. He then tells us that it is impossible to serve two masters because you will love one and hate the other. If you love the world and the things in the world, or you make excuses for worldly things then I ask you, where do you think you stand in this whole scenario.

And finally, for the big daddy, the queen mother of all scripture where this subject is concerned we have to look at what Paul tells those in the Church in Corinth:

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 2 Corinthians 6:14-15

Notice that Belial is capitalized, so he is a proper noun. It is another word for Satan. Had it not been capitalized it would be just a noun and could be defined as worthless or worthless ones. In either case those who walk in the light are supposed to expose darkness. Light chases darkness away. When the sun comes up everything is revealed because light is shining on it. If you’ve ever lived in a home with cockroaches you know that when the lights come on the vermin head for the dark recesses.

The problem today it seems, and I have personally witnessed many times in recent years is that some “believers” like to live in the twilight zone, no pun intended. They want to have the light but dim their light so as to be able to have communion with the darkness. They turn up the dimmer switch when they are at church or with other believers, but they turn it back down when around worldly friends or when they think that their light might “offend” worldly people. Yeshua told us that people of the Light put their light up high so that it will light up the room for everyone to see. He contrasted this to someone who would hide their light under a bushel. Bushels back in Yeshua’s day were made of straw or flax woven together to make a basket. The light that they had were candles. Do you see a problem here? If you put a candle under a bushel it not only hides the light but the candle starts the bushel on fire and the fire consumes the candle with its heat. Compromise with the world is a self defeating purpose that will someday and somehow destroy you.

Yeshua also gave us two more analogies when it comes to fellowshipping with the world in a compromising manner:

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Matthew 7:6

You and I have been made holy through our faith in Yeshua and by the blood that has been shed for our sins. It is not our righteousness, it is His. When we come to faith in Yeshua and ask Him to save us we give up our sovereignty; in modern terms that is our self-determination. We surrender all, as the song says. When we fellowship with the world so as to approve of worldly things or when we partake in worldly things we take ourselves and offer ourselves to those in the world. You can believe me, that when Yeshua said that the swine will rend us when we cast our goodness and holiness before them He was in effect saying that they will accept you for a little while, but when they try to walk in their ways they will discern your holiness and they will turn and tear you apart.

Let me tell you that this has happened to me. I’m not saying anything to any of you that Yahweh hasn’t spoken to me. At my last workplace and at my current workplace I have tried to fit in. I wouldn’t necessarily do what they did, but I’d chuckle at snide remarks, chuckle at off color jokes and when I did those things I was approving of them. In both places, the past and the present, they would accept me for a little while and then they would falsely accuse me of things, treat me horribly and even my boss, who claimed to be a believer would set snares and traps for me. But isn’t it like the devil to try to lead us down another path and then turn around to tear us apart.

I have to be honest and say that I see an increase in the way that believers in Yeshua are taking on worldly things or condoning them at the very least. It seems that as I am getting older I’m noticing that there is an increase in the yuck that is presented before believers for them to choose to believe in or not. We often forget the words of Yeshua who told us that a little leaven takes over the whole lump of dough. A little bit of sin can take over a whole person in the same way. And, just because you’re Born Again doesn’t mean that you’re immune to it; it means that if you choose to stay close to Yahweh then he’ll show you right from wrong and you can flee from the very appearance of evil; and He’ll give you strength to flee and not look back. So when I see people whom I call believers condoning worldly things, or making excuses for worldly things, or Yahweh forbid, participating in worldly things and then justifying those things there could only be two options to their walk. Either they are so compromised by the things of this world and so outside of Yahweh’s Word that they can’t see the evil; or, they are not believers and are counterfeits. There can be no other option than the two.

I grieves me that I have to write such things. I don’t like writing such things. But I have to write these things because there is something drastically wrong with the way that some Christians are thinking these days. And, it’s not just one thing a year that is coming into the church and duping believers, it is tens, hundreds and thousands of things that dupe believers into believing lies. As a watchman for Yahweh I was accustomed to one or two strange doctrines coming against the church each year. That was easy to deal with but there are so many these days that I cannot keep up with them anymore. Frankly, I’m getting weary defending the faith and it’s not because of the things coming against our faith that is making me weary. What is making me weary is that each year there are less and less in number, Christians who have discernment to tell right from wrong and who are willing to stand against wrong, and to call a spade a spade. I now understand when Yeshua told the disciples to pray for workers to harvest the field because without help the worker grows weary and worn out. In churches they used to talk about the 95/5 principle. That meant that 95 percent of the work is done by 5 percent of the people. This has been proved out to me to be true.

So what does someone like me do to show people that is spade is a spade. Well, the first thing I have to do is to realize that it is Yahweh that is telling me to say things to people. Since that is the case, it is His job to make people listen, not mine. I understand why Moses and Aaron would bring a message to Pharoah and then just turn and walk away; the message was going to be discarded as nonsense. They had to trust that when Yahweh told them to say something it would happen and it was Yahweh’s reputation that was on the line, not theirs. So my current response, although it might seem like indifference and uncaring to some is to just say, “this is what Yahweh says. If you believe it then great, if not that is between you and him,” and I have to then walk away. I can’t care anymore what people think; don’t like it, then argue with Yahweh.

This past week I grew full of despair. I got onto my Facebook account and saw a picture that someone had “liked” and it was a picture of a man in a town about twenty minutes north of here. The man wore all black, had long black hair, makeup and sunglasses. He was trying to look like Ozzie Osbourne. The man wore a gold cross that stood out well against his black shirt. He held his arms up and his hands were held in a backward fashion as he did the Satanic salute; the hand gesture of the Goat of Mendez, or Baphomet. What really shocked me was that two people I know, who claim to be believers in Yahweh Yeshua actually “liked” the photo, one even making a remark that the guy is “cool.” Later, another person that I know echoed their accolades and acceptance of this man’s actions.

I was shocked. I wrote to tell everyone what the man was actually doing and said that he was trying to walk in two kingdoms and it would not work. One woman that I do not know dismissed my concerns, saying that the guy just liked to have fun and that she doubted that Ozzie Osbourne was a Satanist. That’s easy to refute; just post his lyrics, which I did. The third Christian lady that I mentioned posted her message after me. I felt sad that three supposed believers in Yeshua could not see the evil for what it was. But what was even more sad was when the third lady dismissed the evidence that I gave; good solid evidence, and sided with the detractors. Very sad indeed.

With this having been said, I want to close with by saying that in the days to come I’ll just answer people with scripture. If they deny the scripture they show their fruit. I think that Yahweh is trying to show a select few of us that there is very little faith left on the earth, especially among those who say that they are called by His Name. We’re going to have to be like the prophets of old who stood alone while all others forsook Yahweh. We’re going to have to realize that it is just He and us and we’re going to have to relate to him more and more as the apostasy grows colder and colder. Satan has kicked the deception into high gear and we need to trust Yahweh more than ever, even with our lives. “When the Son of Man returns, will He find faith upon the earth?” My answer, in only a remnant of those who have not chosen to defile themselves with the Beast System.

The letter below was sent to me. The author is unknown, but the message is valid. I want affirm that I know of two pastors whom the letter below does not refer to: Pastor Tom Mooney of Last Days Harvest Ministries in Sacramento, California and Pastor Frank Castanette of Hosanna Christian Fellowship, in Eugene, Oregon. I know that there are others, but I know these men personally. Thanks to both of you wonderful brothers who hear Yahweh’s voice and preach His Whole Message.

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PASTORS  IN THESE LAST DAYS AND A WARNING

Dear Church Pastors:

What a precarious position you may be placing yourself AND many others in.

Many leaders appear to be refusing to sound the alarm that we are in the end times, out of concern that  many church attendees may disapprove of the “negativity”.

The pastors fear that any perceived “negativity” by churchgoers may cause church attendance to dwindle and thus, income to drop. This mindset, focused on materialism, may have eternal consequences for the many in front of, as well as behind the church podiums.

The flocks are looking to their shepherds to guide and direct them. Most laypeople (the flock), are not watching as commanded themselves. They assume that their clergymen, being seminary-trained, steeped in Bible degrees/knowledge, are doing the watching for them. They naturally are presuming that their leaders are alert and diligently watching for the last days signals given to us by Jesus. Therefore, many occupying the pews are depending entirely on those behind the pulpits to warn them of the signs of the times.

The situation, wherein most pulpits are eerily silent about the last days, is primarily because the modern day Church has evolved into a business, or more like a Corporation instead of a ministry. There again are moneychangers where there is instead supposed to be the sharing of the FREE gift of eternal salvation.

Spreading the Good News was NEVER supposed to be a paid profession for a reason. It turns many a minister of the Gospel into something akin to a politician, trying to garner votes. Often, it morphs the ministry into a matter of popularity and telling people whatever they want to hear, in order to profit the man.

Being a paid minister of the Gospel makes one dependent on the salary afforded to them by the Church. Of course, maintaining the big business of today’s churches are sustained only through contributions of congregants. Church leaders therefore are forced to keep the contributions flowing, in order to maintain their lifestyle/support their family.

This need has enticed many pastors to stick to keeping the message “fluffy”, entertaining and bursting with sunshine. Not to mention the Worldly music and weird entertainment .
People in these Churches are so deceived and blinded to the fact that its all a false delusional service . It’s just a social club that makes you feel good because its not the true full Gospel. The saddest part , is that we are so close to The Lord coming back , that they don’t even realize how far they have gotten off the Narrow road .

Just as in the case of politicians, it is important to uplift the people and only tell them what “tickles their ears”, if they want the people’s continued attendance, along with the accompanying continued cash flow.

“A time will come when people will not listen to accurate teachings. Instead, they will follow their own desires and surround themselves with teachers who tell them what they want to hear.” 2 Timothy 4:3

This need for maintaining a regularity in financial support has lead to where a majority of pastors are totally negligent in watching, let alone warning, about the rapidly advancing fulfillment of last days Bible prophecy.

Those who have been entrusted with the welfare of the flocks need to remember that by assuming the role as leaders/teachers, that they will be judged more severely:

“My brethren, be not many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the severer judgment.” James 3:1

God, in His omnipotence, seeing the end from the beginning, knew that in these last days that the Church at large, would evolve into a business.

“Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.” Isaiah 46:10

As a result, God has called laypeople to be watchmen on the wall, to stand in the stead for the leaders of the churches; who have chosen to protect their family incomes instead of spiritually protecting their flocks.

These watchmen come from all walks of life and are primarily composed of laypeople. Since they are not trained pastors, most of the flock usually see the watchmen as either inept or incapable. Oftentimes, they even view the watchmen as eccentric and ostracizable.
Any of these perspectives cause the people in the pews to virtually ignore the watchmen and their warnings.

As we draw yet closer to the prophesied Time of Jacob’s Trouble/Tribulation and the Rapture of the readied Bride, God appears to be calling even more watchmen in, to man the walls for the last watches. There are watchmen of all genders, races and nationalities now sounding the alarm all over the internet.

From Facebook and YouTube to individual websites and Rapture based message boards, the clarion call can be heard all over the world wide web. God loves His people so deeply that He commanded us to watch for the plethora of signs that He foretold that would signal the end of the age.

It is up to each believer to choose to either heed, or to ignore, the watchmen’s cries of alarm. According to Ezekiel, obedient watchmen will not be held accountable for the choices of those warned. However, those in the pulpits, shepherding the flocks, will be held accountable for the blood of those in their care, if they choose to not blow the trumpet of warning.

“But if the watchman sees the sword come, and blows not the trumpet, and the people are not warned; if the sword comes, and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” Ezekiel 33:6

Thus, the negligent leaders behind the lecterns are not only heaping more severe judgment upon themselves, but also leaving many in their congregations woefully unprepared.

If all pastors were faithfully warning their flocks, their flocks would be fully aware of the nearness of the coming of the Lord. Being convinced and aware, these believers would in turn, start sounding the alarm themselves. Eventually, the internet would be all abuzz with warnings by all believers that we are at the end of the age. Even non-believers would become aware that all the increasing abnormalcy on the planet is actually  Biblical prophecy coming to pass. Many of the lost would be saved and the lukewarm would be readied.

Due to all the preceding factors, it is imperative that all ministers of the Gospel realize that by disobeying the Lord’s command to watch, a multitude of souls are at stake (including their own).

It’s time to throw out the man made programs by Rick Warrens  Church Growth System , The Seeker Friendly Plan and turn back to God and let Him build His Church .
Repent , wake up and turn back to your first love . Warn the Sheep of the judgments to come and get them prepared for these Last Days and the Rapture .

Ezekiel 44
11 Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having charge at the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister unto them.
12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD, and they shall bear their iniquity.
13 And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have committed.

Amos 8
11: Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:

The Following is a word that Yahweh gave me for those “believers” in Him who want to hold to the Constitution of The United States as their foundation and as their “guarantor” of freedom. Choose you this day whom you shall serve……..

 

A people called by My Name, that is all that I seek.

A people called by my name, that is all I desire.

For many are called by the name of another, many choose other paths.

My Children living in Babylon, why are you in confusion?

My people living where Satan dwells, where is your understanding?

Didn’t I tell you to ask me for wisdom and I would give it liberally?

Haven’t you heard that My Word is what you need to live?

I have filled you with My Spirit so that you could understand,

And I’ve given Him to you so that you can lack nothing that you need.

Yet some of you put your trust in the documents of men,

Some of you hold fast to papers that will someday burn in the fire.

Your land was once a beautiful land, filled with people that yearned to be free.

I heard their cries and allowed them to overcome King George of England.

I saw the oppression that the tyrant placed upon your necks and loosed you.

You prospered when you loved Me and when you loved My Word.

Me and My Word are one, eternally together and never separated.

You grew strong when you placed your faith in me.

And though there were ungodly men in your government I ignored their deeds,

For the sake of the Elect your land prospered despite their unrighteousness.

I blessed your land because you called yourselves by My Name.

My Word was to you like a Letter of Marriage, a bond we held together.

It was the love song that we sang together, My song written to you in My Blood

You sent witnesses throughout the world to proclaim My Grace and Salvation,

And you sent out armies to suppress the suppressors.

I have knocked down walls for you; helped you to conquer oceans and mountains.

Through you I brought a quality of life upon the Earth and a yearning for that quality.

I made you a light to the nations and many were drawn to that light.

I increased your storehouses so that you fed yourselves and the world.

But as you grew older you became vain, conceited and full of pride.

The freedom that you were given became an idol to you, and sadly, your first love.

Your Constitution became your holy document and my Word was put upon your shelf.

It has gathered dust for many years; when will you take it down and seek me again?

Your Constitution says you are guaranteed rights;

My Word guarantees privileges to those who love Me.

Your Constitution guarantees freedom and liberty,

My Word guarantees the same, but only through Me.

Your Constitution suggests that each person is a sovereign.

My Word declares that you must lay down your sovereignty and give it to me,

And My Word declares that you must take my easy yoke upon you.

Your Declaration declares that men are endowed with Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness.

Have you not read My Word??

My Word proclaims that you will have strife, sorrow and sadness,

And that happiness only comes through knowing Me and your obedience to me.

Your Constitution was given to you by men, and now it shall be taken away by men.

My Children, many of you have left Me, your first love, and you defend a piece of paper.

You once traded in Gold, and then silver; but now you trade in worthless paper.

You once revered My Word as your foundation, the litmus test of all truth,

But now you revere a document of men, and many will die to protect that document.

Will you die for My Word? Will you die to defend me and stand with me?

Sadly, I tell you that many of you will not speak for me, so I will not speak for you to my Father.

Soon, yes very soon many will take to the street in rebellion against the tyrant.

And thought it seems that you are winning many will be destroyed.

From every corner of Earth they will come to the aid of the tyrant and they’ll cause you to hide in the hills.

Your mighty men will quake in their boots and fear will be the end of many.

Your freedom will be taken away from you; you will become subjects of the tyrant.

Many who swore to defend your Constitution only spoke the words,

They will hide in the caverns of cowardice in the day of battle.

Others will side with the tyrant. Who can honor an oath in a land of disobedience?

It is time that My People make a decision; the time is now to decide.

Who will you side with? To which kingdom to you belong?

Will you honor My Word and honor Me as the only guarantor of everything good?

Or, will you honor a document of men that is being destroyed by men because of your disobedience.

Will you honor a document of men that cannot guarantee you anything,

Who is the guarantor? See your rights, stolen from you one by one; the scales tip for the tyrant.

Or, will you honor Me, My Word and the truth that can set you free forever?

It is decision time My People, Those Who Call Themselves By My Name.

You can choose Me, or you can choose certain destruction.

Do not cast blame those who steal away your freedom,

It is your disobedience that has caused them to seemingly disappear from before your eyes.

Do not cast blame on the ungodly, for you did not stand against their unrighteousness.

Your laziness and lack of purpose has brought about your nation’s downfall.

I offer you a remedy; there is a cure for the remnant that I will preserve.

One more time I will show you my Elect what must be done; the remedy that I have echoed for millennia.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Note: This article was written in 2013.

This July will be my 34th birthday in my faith in Yeshua. I was born again on July 21, 1979 and aside from a short time of rebellion I have walked with Yeshua and aside from that one time haven’t wavered in my relationship with Yahweh through Yeshua.

In my time I’ve seen many things; sometimes I think I’ve seen too many things; I’m tired. Back in the 1980’s if you mentioned that you had read the works of Nostradamus people would really grill you about it. You don’t really believe those things do you, they would ask? Of course not was my answer, but I still read them out of curiosity. I never liked Edgar Cayce but was familiar with some of his writings, but I didn’t believe one word of his supposed prophecy. If you talked about the bizarre character of the Pyramids or anything else akin to them people became concerned. And you know what, it was right for them to become concerned because those things had nothing to do with our faith in Yeshua. They were all falsities used by the enemy of our faith to get people to fall away; sadly it worked in some instances with friends and such.

If you mentioned back then, that you read about all of the false apparitions of the Virgin Mary people would question you. It was quite clear that they were demonic and/or fallen angelic in nature and reading the messages that these entities conveyed always bore out that assertion. Then we started to hear about the visions and messages that were supposedly given to some little girls by what was later labeled as The Virgin of Fatima. Supposedly these were prophetic in nature and they were being kept in secret. People who walked in the Ruach Ha Kodesh knew that these again were just more demonic visitations that were promoted my some of the Vatican faithful. We would watch on television as someone would find a knot in a tree that looked like Mary or someone would drop some paint on a floor and the splatter would look like Mary and most Christians would mock the lines of Catholics who would stand there waiting their turn to see what they thought to be a “sign and miracle.”

But then the end of the 80’s came and the weirdness started to come into the Protestant Church. In 1997 an author who was very heavily into the Rapture wrote a book stating that there were 88 reasons why Yeshua would rapture the Church in 1988. On January 01, 1989 we were still here. Many bought into this false prophecy and were disappointed. Many sold their belongings, their property and their dignity for a lie. We watched as Jonestown happened in South America where so many died because they believe a false prophet. We watched as David Koresh had his followers so enmeshed in his false prophecies that they would rather die in a government made inferno rather than give into common sense. Many ascribed stupidity to the followers of these men; people ignorant of Yahweh’s Word; how could they believe such lies; was heard many times in churches all over America and probably around the world.

In the late 1990’s a group of techno-geeks bought into the lies of Marshall Applewhite. They believed that there was a UFO hiding in the tail of the Comet Hale Bopp and that when it was closest to earth it would translate them into the spaceship and they would go to live with their godlike space-brothers. So many in the Christian community questioned how people could believe such rubbish. They forgot that it happened to supposed “believers” a few years back but they couldn’t be believers if they believed such lies; or so they reasoned.

The problem with asking such questions will most of the time bring about answers. Those answers might not come in that “still small voice” that Yahweh uses to often talk to His Own. Sometimes it comes in real life illustrations; things brought out to show us in our own lives. Back in the 80’s I was reading a lot in the Books of The Prophets and I verbally expressed a question. I looked toward heaven and asked how a people; one who had such a history of miraculous events with Yahweh; crossing the Red Sea, God on Mount Sinai; the Manna in the desert and so many other things could turn away from Yahweh, not once, but time and time again. The answer came in the way of a time of backsliding for a period of about four years. The strange thing was that I thought I had a good relationship with Yahweh, but I was living in the world, doing worldly things and compromising the ideals that I held so dear in my heart; the Laws that He had written on my heart and mind.

Thankfully I was brought back to my senses and came back determined that I would never mock a people every again, especially The Apple of His Eye. About this time I was involved in the Vineyard Church. At first this church was wonderful and many great things came through it; but it started to change. People were demanding to see signs and miracles. The problem with that is that we were and are living in an adulterous and sinful generation and Yahweh doesn’t give signs to such people. So, I started to hear about people going into uncontrollable fits of laughing and that made me uneasy. Yahweh is a God of order, not of confusion and services should never be uncontrolled. Those of us with the unction know that Yahweh’s ways are different from the worlds ways and this laughter was not of Yahweh. Then I started to hear that people were barking like dogs, snorting like pigs and mooing like cows during these events; definitely not of Yahweh. This wasn’t enough for people; they wanted to see things too and after a while people started to hear angel’s feathers and see them fall from the ceiling of churches. They never bothered to research angels and realize that angels really don’t have feathers; that is a human contrivance. Then people started claiming that they were receiving gold fillings in their teeth and they were finding gold dust in the church along with diamonds laying on the floor. From my own experience, Yahweh will always communicate in supernatural way; in a spiritual way, and not in the “signs and wonders” that people were demanding.

So this has all gone on for quite a few years now; people demanding a sign from Yahweh. The Holy Spirit has left many churches for a variety of reasons so the next best thing is a physical manifestation, even if it is not from Yahweh. Why, I even saw one church that was talking about the pretty orbs of light that were coming into the church every service that they had. They were attributing these lights to angels; but lest we forget that these same manifestations accompany many UFO sightings and other psychic happenings. Yes, they are angels, but not the good guys. The good angels always appear as men and they are always messengers.

Where has this all taken us? Well, it’s produced people who want the world to come to an end so desparately that they are looking at worldly things and words said by many who are far from the truth being held up almost in the same reverence as the Gospel of Yeshua. In 1999 the threat of Y2K loomed and many so called “believers” in Yeshua were proclaiming that when the electronics world ended so would society and the Revelation Period would begin to bring about order through a Satanic savior. When nothing happened these “prophets of doom” were never held accountable. In Biblical times, they would have been stoned to death, but in an age of Grace anyone can say anything and we have to forgive them and bring them to correction; but no correction is brought about and if it is, the person who caused the offence is often given a get out of jail free card by the sheeple who believe their pseudo-prophetic nonsense.

Yet still there was a time, just a couple of years ago when we heard that there was a mysterious object approaching the earth; that it was maybe a planetoid or the infamous Nibiru. We were told that when it passed close to the earth there would be a polar shift; that there would be earthquakes, tidal waves and other calamties that would change drastically the life that we know and cherish here on Earth. It was surmised that the flurry of earthquakes that happened in Chile, New Zealand and Japan was proof that when this thing aligned with Earth and the sun it did cause problems here; but as the time for it’s passing came and went there was nothing. I’ll be the first to admit that I bought into the “possibility” that there could be some merit to this and even interviewed one or two people about the possibility and they sounded credible; but again it was a false prophecy.

And who of any of our contemporaries could forget that for a number of years we had to hear how the world would come to an end on December 12, 2012 because a Mayan Calendar ended on that day; those proclaiming it either ignorant of the fact or purposefully lying that they didn’t know that there are many Mayan calendars that go many years still into the future. Christians picked up on this and this was going to be the “day of the rapture,” when we would all be whisked away from this evil and wicked world. Christians are starting to show an renewed interest in the prophecies of Nostradamus again also; too ignorant of the fact that the guy was as far from a prophet as Andromeda is from Earth.

But the one that really cracks me up; that makes me howl with laughter but also weep with sorrow because I see the sheeple falling for lies all over again, is how many are proclaiming that the prophecies of a “Black Pope,” given centuries ago by a supposed Catholic Prophet are intrinsic to end time prophecy of the False Prophet of the Book of Revelation. Let me return you to the start of this article. For many years, if you said that you believed anything “Catholic” you were spurned, belittled and called a heretic. But in our present time, when this so called “prophet’s” falsities can fit into the imaginations of those who can use it to write books and produce videos; all of a sudden the Catholic Prophecies are sanctioned and okay.

According to their theory regarding the Black Pope, they contend that the last Pope will of of Roman or Italian extract. They call this Pope, Petrus Romanus, or Peter the Roman. The recent election of a new Pope from Latin America, who happens to have a last name that sounds Italian has caused many to backpedal and change their story. Their claim, that the new Pope, who has taken on the moniker of Frances of Assisi, “Francesco di Pietro di Bernardone” only proves that he is the Black Pope. First off, claiming that he is Italian (which he is not) and therefore he has to be the Black Pope is akin to saying that because I have an Italian last name I am in some way connected with the Mafia; it is ludicrous. Secondly, his name translated into English is Frances, son of Peter, Son of Bernard. The “one” at the end of the name makes it a family surname; it is like a title. Does this mean that anyone in Italy, who’s father’s name who just happens to be Pietro (Peter) is a candidate for the false prophet of Revelation? After their error was revealed, the authors of this theory, or some of those promoting it, the man is a Roman. Well, there is nothing in his name that says he is a Roman, and even if he were of Italian extract, he is still from Latin America. This theory just doesn’t add up; and in the stead of the authors, who have probably made a grand mistake, God forbid that they say that they were in error. They’ve set themselves so high up on the pompous scale that to admit error would cause their pride to come crashing down on the rocks. It’s too bad that they esteem their Christian brethren with such disdain to think so many to be so unforgiving.

The very same people who have said that most of the ancient societies were either fashioned or influenced by fallen angels are now taking the things that were given by the fallen angels and they’re saying that “perhaps there is some truth in these things.” My goodness, have they gone mad??? The dark side always lies, and they use their lies to enforce their ways, and not the ways of our Yahweh. They’re fantastic bluffers and liars. When Yeshua asked the demoniac at the Gadarenes what his name was, the lead demon replied that they were Legion, because they were many. A Roman Legion, with all of their helpers numbered as high as five thousand men. In the account in Mark, chapter five it turned out that there were only two thousand demons because there were about two thousand pigs. The demon was lying. Instead of saying they were half a legion, they said they were a full legion to make themselves look larger in number and make Yeshua’s work much harder (if that were possible, I think not). So taking stock in anything that has been written under demonic influence or in a society that is heavily influenced by demonic influence should never happen; yet why do these (Christian?) researchers do this very thing?

Well, only Yahweh knows the heart. However, when you establish your living on selling books and appearing at seminars; sensationalism sells. When you establish yourself as having all of the latest news and revelation’s and when or if the true source of revelation, the Ruach Ha Kodesh stops providing that information then other things have to be turned to to keep up on the sensationalism. I’m not pointing fingers at any one person or even a group of people. I just know what fear of paying the house mortgage, keeping the business going and saving face in a community it is amazing what good and honest people are capable of. We’re all living in difficult times now and having lived through them before I have seen people twist this or tweak that to make things fit. What a shame it is on anyone who used lies, deceit and other things that believers are supposed to loath, and use them for capital gain and/or fame or fortune. Hope that they like their reward, because they’re getting it now. I’ll opt for later, thanks.

It is time for the Elect to wake up. It is time for us to realize that the only truth we will ever find is in Hebrew Scripture; all 66 books of it. Yahweh warned us to stay away from “vain imaginations” and to spurn “rumors” and to stick to the original. It is so very important that we study scripture for ourselves; each and every one of us. There are those out there who proclaim that they know and have studied the Bible. Many of these people twist and contort Yahweh’s Word to conform to their lifestyles or their doctrines. If you don’t study the Word of Yahweh then you can easily be duped; and many have. Wake up brothers and sisters or you’ll find yourself sucked into a sinkhole of spiritual deceit and you’ll be funding the prophets of this deceit. Wake up before it’s too late. The day is coming when every valley will be exalted and every mountain be brought low and all will be exposed; but until that day we need to pray for discernment, and lots of it. Pray for wisdom but most of all pray that the deceivers will be shown for who they are. Pray for this in your daily life, at your churches and especially whenever you hear of another book or seminar where “truths” will be revealed. You already have the truth. You hold it in your hands when you read Scripture and you have have Him in your heart when you have the Ruach Ha Kodesh residing within you. So, will you trust Yahweh or will you trust men? As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord God of Israel!

On April 02, 2013; 22 Nissan, 5773, I felt the need to sit down and write what Yahweh was laying on my heart regarding some concerns that He has for those who call themselves by His Name. May this convict or exhort depending on where your walk with Him is.

 

COME OUT FROM HER MY REMNANT

 

My children seek me but they do not see me.

I cry out to them; “come and gather unto me, here I am,” yet most do not answer.

I cry out again, “here I am” and some raise their heads briefly, yet again bow.

I send my Spirit to convict, to speak softly into their ears; no effect.

I look to see that they are searching for me too, yet they cannot hear me.

I have made it so simple for them; just trust and obey my commands,

Yet somehow that seems too easy for them; they search for some method to reach me.

One arises, claiming to hear from me and my children run to him; run to hear,

Yet I have never commissioned these to talk to my children.

My Spirit is given freely to my beloved ones, yet they will not hear his voice.

Their enemy crouches in the bushes, seeking to destroy them, yet they cannot discern him.

They cry out to Me and I answer, yet they do not hear.

They ask for a sign; “prove to us that our faith is not in vain,” I hear their hearts cry out.

I cry out to them, “have faith!” Know that I am right beside you.

Give us a sign they cry out yet again; show us that you are there my Lord.

I have shown them that I am Spirit, and they must worship me in Spirit, yet they still seek a sign.

More lions crouch in the bush; spying out a wounded pray, a people without faith.

The lions reason, “let us chase them away from the living water, let us weaken them more.”

Make them run into the desert where can kill them,” they reason together.

So I have allowed the lions to give you what appears to be real, but is a delusion.

As my people Israel wandered in the desert, perhaps my children need likewise.

Maybe if they hunger and thirst for me they will cry out again to me.

Remove them from the signs and wonders that they seek, teach them again what faith is.

There is no “holy laughter” in the desert, neither is there gold dust or diamonds.

Sands, burning hot and dry will be the lot of those who seek after false signs.

In that day you will again cry out to me, in faith, not by your vain devices.

In that day you will see the low yield of fruit that you have produced in your small faith.

In that day you will see that gold dust and diamonds cannot save you.

In that day you will see that formulas will not bring me into your presence.

You cannot summon me like the pagans do with their gods who do not answer.

My children have lost faith, they do not like to wait. They speak but will not listen.

Your games and your folly have proven you to the world as being just like them.

You wonder why they do not come in and blame it on “their” worldliness.

I tell you, your worldly ways supersede that of the worldly people you abhor.

You seek what the world seek and behold I gave you what they have.

I commanded you not to serve two masters, yet you have disobeyed my words.

Now I take away the wealth and prosperity of this world; what will you trust in now?

Your wealth is not there to save you. Your signs and wonders are vanishing.

Poor, naked and destitute, like the prodigal son are many of you.

You feed the swine while your masters live in luxury; they have devoured you.

The birds of prey feast at your tables and vermin eat what remains.

The day is coming when a sliver of bread and clean water will delight you.

Then again will some of you seek my face; then you will hear my voice crying to you.

I have mourned all of these years for you.

I laid down my life for you; suffered unimaginable agony to make you free.

I was separated from my father for you, bearing your sin once and for all.

I descended to hell to free the former ones who waited for me.

I gave to you my Spirit to give comfort to you and to speak for me.

No other gods have done this, never has this been done since the world began.

Yet this is not enough for some of you; children always crying for more.

I am separating the faithful children from the unfaithful people.

I walk the threshing floor blowing a mighty wind as the chaff blows away.

The tares will no longer live alongside my wheat.

The time has arrived when I will remove the dross from the molten gold.

Come out from among them my children; come to me my brethren.

Only I can suffice what you are seeking for; only I have the answers.

Only I can solve your problems and give you everlasting reassurance.

I have called a remnant unto myself; those who have not bowed down to idols.

These I love because they have chosen to love me and to abide in me.

These have realized that I am the potter and they are the clay.

Draw ever closer to me my remnant; every day closer and closer, for the days are evil.

I have given you discernment so that you can warn the others.

Do not be surprised when they do not listen to your warning, for they are perishing.

You must warn, you must blow the trumpet and you must trust in me to work in you.

And, as I promised those so long ago, I will be with you always; even until the end of this world.

You know, I’ve done a lot in my life that under other circumstances I would have gotten recognition from the world and even many believers in Yeshua, but Yahweh has been faithful to let me look like a failure to the world. I’ve come up with some pretty good ideas that others have taken and capitalized on and I’ve published other things given to me by Yahweh that other have taken and published under their own name. This should get me roaring mad but it doesn’t. For, you see, I ascribe ideas and thoughts that are beneficial as coming from Yahweh so they really belong to Him, and not me. Anger against such things would be the anger of a mad plaguerist.

On this road of life and the road of ministry (they should be the same road if you’re walking with Yahweh) we encounter so very many types of people. Some people have no faith while others have what looks like a mountain of faith. Some people have the personality of a viper while others are like little lambs. Some are gifted in taking your money in any way possible while others scrimp and scrape by earning a meager existance. And, of course there are myriads of people that fall within the the extremes that I’ve just mentioned.

We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.  Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call. Psalm 20:5-9

The sum total of what we are and who we are in Yeshua is “who do  you trust?” Who are you willing to put your stock in when things get rough and who will you trust to make you a success? The seductions of this world are so very present and so very tempting. I’ve had people write to me expressing a desire to support me and our ministry and they seemed pretty compelling. However, I have investigated those people and I have to say that with the exception of two men, all others wanted to help because they could somehow worm their way into the ministry to be able to change the course of the ministry or to downright take it over. The two brothers who are sincere have become friends as well as supporters and have not only contributed financially to the cause, but have been there to lend an ear and voice of support and to offer advice and constructive criticism when needed.

A few years ago Yahweh gave me a dream where he showed me something that I am sort of afraid to share the interpretation thereof. I am afraid because some reading this are not kind people and they will automatically ascribe to this interpretation that I am prideful or feel that I ascribe some sort of special anointing to myself. I cannot anoint myself, so that thought is ridiculous and also, Yahweh has seemed to make me His special project when it comes to keeping me humble and contrite. Most of you have been under the shadow of His wings whereas I have been shut up in the cleft of the rock, so to speak. He has quashed every attempt by me to become prideful and what the world calls successful; and I do not exagerate nor do I bewail it either.

In the dream I was with an associate and others. All of us were in a very high hotel on the top floor, probably the penthouse suite of something like that. I remember looking over the side and seeing that the part of the building we were in was out farther than the other parts of the building; sort of like the horizontal part of the letter “t” hangs out over the vertical part of the letter. I was looking down over the edge to see if there was an escape route for us but the shape of the building made that impossible; plus  the hight of the building was very great. We were trapped on the top floor and we knew that the FBI was looking for us and that they had the hotel surrounded and they were on every floor.

We finally decided that we should give up and surrender to the FBI. Someone opened the door and the agents swarmed in. We were escorted by the FBI down a stairwell to one of the floors where everyone but me was handcuffed. This particular floor didn’t look like a hotel floor because the floors were all tiled and the walls were white, almost like a hospital setting. As we walked I put my hands behind my back so that the officer could handcuff me whereupon he told me he would handcuff me after he went to the bathroom. He and another angent went into the bathroom and left me alone out in the doorway. I can remember seeing the others being led toward the edge of the hallway, all in handcuffs and then I saw them no more. I was all by myself in the hallway. I waited for the agents to come out of the bathroom and contemplated that I should make an escape but at the same time I felt that I didn’t need to escape. So, I waited for a while longer and started to walk down the hallway by myself and at this part of the dream I woke up.

Image similar to the building in my dream except the cross tee was up at the top.

I asked Yahweh what this dream meant because for a while I was confused as to its meaning. It came to me that the dream meant that I would be separated from the current associate and others in the “Christian” UFO research field. This was to occur because whatever is finally going to happen to the other researchers I would not have to partake in. I was not going to be led away in shakels like the others. The FBI agents symbolized Yahweh’s angels and the handcuffs symbolized the bondage of pride. Yahweh wanted me to know that the bondage that the others are bound in won’t bind me and that Yahweh was allowing me to be free so that I can fulfill the will that he has for me in my life. The fact that the angels brought us down from the highest floor symbolized the loftiness that many Christians in the UFO field  happen to feel will cause them to be brought low and the fact that the floor that I was left on was like a hospital means that I will be free to minister to the sick (those needing spiritual health and salvation).

This dream was given to me on March 07, 2009 which is about the time that I could have compromised my position and come into the limelight of the Christian UFO Research Realm. The previous July, I had spoken in Roswell at a UFO conference and I had just submitted my book for publication. I was rising to the top and the potential for pride was present for sure.

The book never did take off. Some say it was because it was too long; other say that it was written before its time. Some even said that it wasn’t well written. I think that Yahweh didn’t want it to take off at present because it was written before its time and because low sales would keep me humble. I also think that it was in part to the contributer, Joe Jordan’s attempt to steal the rights and credit and people’s dislike for that man. Only Yahweh knows for sure and someday I will know the whole story.

Back in the late 1980’s I was hurt in an industrial accident and became unable to work. Before the accident I was making well over thirty dollars per hour and single, and I was enjoying life and living the life of Riley. I can’t say I was high on the hog, for obvious reasons. There were others who were hurt also and everyone hired one law firm out of San Francisco. They were known for getting results, so we went with them because we wanted to see some sort of return after being out of work for an extended period of time. In 1991 we all received our settlements and it was a pretty good amount. In what seemed like overnight I was a changed man with enough money to keep me happy for a while and/or for life had I invested it right. Yahweh saw how the money changed me and within two year’s time all of the money was gone. Many of the things that I had acquired with the money were also gone and within five years of getting the award I was filing for bankruptcy. Clearly, I was not meant to have money, or at least that much money at the young age of 32. In addition to the monetary downward spiral came a similar spiral of my walk with Yeshua. Sadly, I was trying to serve God and Mammon. Let me testify to you, you cannot serve two masters. Yahweh was gracious to destroy the other master so that I again had to turn to him.

So you see that when I say that Yahweh doesn’t want me to have anything that could cause me to go off course it has been born out in my life that this tesimony is true. This is also true when it comes to fame, fortune or anything that will pull my attention away from him.

We now have to turn back to the dream that I inserted earlier in this Journal entry. Yahweh had seen that there was a possiblity of my becoming absorbed in a worldly aspect of ministry rather than a Godly aspect of ministry. I had noticed as early as 2005 that there were some very worldly people who called themselves “Christians,” who were involved in the Christian UFO Research Community. If Yahweh has endowed you with discernment you can see this quite easily. The real believers are humble, contrite and the air that they come across with is that of humility. They are rare indeed inside of this community. The others are the ones who seem to prosper. They write book upon book and speak at conference upon conference and they sort of ooze with pride and self edification. Even when they try to act humble the ooze of pride always makes itself present to reveal who they are.

What many people don’t know is that these same prideful men and women often get their rise in popularity through unsavory means. For instance, a collegue of mine has had his ideas constantly ripped off by other authors and entities. He has read his own ideas in books and publications written by people whom he thought he could trust. Many times he would be on phone calls with these plagueristic people and he would express an idea only to find it in their newsletter a month or two later. His own book was even pirated by someone who has offered it at a reduced rate and sold hundreds if not thousands of copies. Having had these things happen to me, I can attest that it causes sadness that people who claim to walk under the same banner, the banner of Yeshua, could do such things. In another vein, there are those who offer to publish the work of believers and steal away the work. Such people offer to front the cost of publication because they think that your work is important yet they do not fulfil the work of a publisher. They halfheartedly promote and then quickly drop your work because they see another school of bait in the water that they think will bring them money. They leave your work in limbo and when it fails they drop you like a bare handed man drops an iron skilled right off the fire. Yes, there are snakes in Christian publishing that masquerade as honest and caring believers.

As I mentioned earlier, I started to see these things early in the research community. The stench of dead Christianity can often be masked by those who are dead, but to those whom Yahweh has given a discerning nose the use of air freshener will never hide death and decay from them. Right from the start I had been given the intuition of who to hang out with and who was not right. Admittedly I was hoodwinked by a master masker for a short time but even this man showed his true colors sort of early on.

In the dream I had been alone and alone is not a fun place to be. Sometimes I would start to wonder if I was being too judgmental or perhaps if my discernment was off. Surely there could not be 98 percent bad and only two percent good? Yahweh however showed over the years how this was indeed true and how even the best of those in the masquerade were tainted. The dream was bearing out to be true; I was the only one in that great company who would not walk away in the shackles of disrepute.

As one would often think, I wondered if perhaps I’m paranoid about all of this. Even though I had the dream and things seemed pretty apparent to me, I often wondered if I was being influenced by the dream or I was seeing things like I wanted to see them. These speculations soon came to an end when I started to receive emails from people who liked my ministry. They would send me questions, asking me about certain individuals. I would get questions asking me if I had noticed that certain people didn’t seem just quite right, and other such things. I then began to see that I wasn’t imagining things, or at the very least, if I was delusional, other people suffered from the same delusion. But the one thing that stood out plain was the dream. It was as if Yahweh was sending me the letters from these people to confirm that what I was seeing was indeed the truth. Yahweh if faithful to give us confirmation; this has always been the case with him speaking to me anyway.

Yahweh said that we would know people by the fruit that they bear:

For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. Luke 6:43-45

Yeshua tells us here that you’ll know people by what they do, what they say and what comes from the things that they are trying to do. Yahweh has built a check valve into evil people so that they will always reveal what they are doing. Evil people always show you their cards. It is astonishing, but it always seems that the evil always show their plans. The trick is that you have to be listening so that you can hear them tip you off. So called “Christians” who work evil are no different. They will always slip or even brag about what they are doing; they cannot avoid the check valve, so to speak. And, because they tip us off it is important to hear what they are saying so that we can rebuke them, and if need be flee from the very appearance of evil.

The essence of all of this is that I cannot and will not league myself with people who are not fully committed to serving Yahweh and loving Yeshua. We’re told many times in scripture that we’re not supposed to be unequally yoked in anything; relationships, friendships, business adventures and especially in ministry. We’re told in word and through stories in scripture what the end result of these sort of unions will be. We’re told that the only one who will not fail us; the only one who has our best interest at heart and the only one who will be there through thick and thin is Yeshua. I’ve known him for well over thirty years and He has never failed me. In times when I thought that he was far away it was my eyesight that faltered because He has always been by my side. When people have tried to destroy the ministry that Yahweh commissioned me to do, Yeshua was always there to turn the tables on those people and protect the integrity of ministry and my walk; both of which are in Him.

So no, I will not league with people lacking integrity and lacking full contact relationship with Yahweh through Yeshua. If and when I find such people in my company they will be alerted to their lack of integrity. If they repent and return to Yahweh then praise Yeshua. If they continue on in their prideful ways then I will end association with them. Time is short and the enemy desires to steal people away into the the great delusion. I cannot and will not be part of that delusion no matter how sweet the agents of darkness make the pot and no matter how much they say I can prosper by joining with them. So, let the researchers prosper. Let them find fame and fortune and let them compromise in order to usurp Yahweh’s plan for them. I’ll have no part of it. What does it profit a man if he should gain the whole world but forfeit his soul? Hopefully, I’ll never find out the answer to that question, and I pray that you my reading faithful never do either!

As the founding member and minister of The Delusion Resistance I have been involved in many years as being a watchman on the wall. I have been called to be one who looks at delusions and deceptions in order to warn people of the wolves that are trying to interlope into the Body of Mashiach. This has not been an easy road to follow because so many in the Body of Mashiach aren’t willing to listen and/or investigate the bizarre things that our out in the world just waiting to ensnare people who lack discernment.

Surprisingly, many of the deceptions that are happening in our current time aren’t exactly coming to us from the outside, but from right within the Body of Mashiach. It used to be that the deceptions and delusions were coming from without, but the enemy has done a very good job of putting covert people within the ranks of our brothers and sisters. This has happened in great part because the Body of Mashiach has become worldly and to use a Star Trek term, they are flying with their shields down. We’ve grown to be so puffed up that many of us doubt that the enemy could ever place covert people within our ranks. Yahweh would never permit that, right? They forget that most of the epistles in the New Covenant are letters from Apostles warning people not to be duped and in some of them the churches are chastised for letting unholy practices into the Fellowship of The Elect. The modern church, in a prideful arrogance has ignored that this could happen and they even proclaim that it cannot happen. Were our brothers and sisters of the early church less holy than we modern day believers are; I think and the fruit of the modern Church tend to show it to be the opposite.

In the pursuance of signs and wonders and/or prosperity the Fellowship at large has left the back door open. The enemy, like any good thief constantly looks for ways with which he can enter in and steal the precious things of the home. Many have substituted the simple and fortifying things of the faith in order to gain what a few false shepherds have placed in front of them and they’ve left themselves poor and naked in the things of Yahweh while rich in wood, hay and stubble. While so called believers are stumbling over themselves to look for diamonds and gold dust on the floor, and while they’re barking like dogs and clucking like chickens the enemy has perpetrated the most daring home invasion takeover that has ever happened to the Body of Mashiach.

The Body of Mashiach used to be the entity that dictated to the world what was good and holy and right. However over the past hundred years or so they have allowed the world to come in and dictate to them what is good. There is a quote that is attributed to two different men; Edmund Burke and John Philpot. No one is sure who the original author was but that doesn’t matter for our purposes. The quote is:

“Evil prospers when good men do nothing.”

This is so true and the fact that our world is in such a mess is evidence of this very fact. Had Believers in Yeshua protested all of the evil that has come upon us; protested to the point of spilling our own blood, then perhaps the world and The Fellowship would have stood up and taken notice. However, it seems like people always want someone else to take action and to spill “their” blood and because of this nothing unholy has really been challenged to the point of stopping or preventing evil from prospering in this world.

We have also allowed the world to dictate morality to us, the Elect. There was a time when I was young that people would speak out about bad things plus they would not allow ungodly morality to even come close to taking reign in the Believer’s realm. Back in the late 70’s and onward “political correctness” came into being. This mode of thinking basically states that there is a boundary in which things are acceptable and unacceptable. This would be good if it was Holy, but it has been instituted by socialistic and communistic types who strive to dictate what society can and cannot say and do. Because of this, there are certain groups that have championed this banner to the point of ridiculousness and they have used it as a moral and political tool to shut the mouths of anyone who goes against their grain.

One big fault that the Fellowship of The Elect has done is that it has allowed political correctness to infiltrate the Fellowship and negate the Holy Scriptures. For instance, I have been told many times, when offering correction to a brother or sister, that I was being judgmental and that the Bible says that we should not judge each other. Well, this is bovine scatology because there are several Greek words for “judge” and the one where Yeshua said not to “judge” really is rendered in the Greek to mean “condemn.” Yeshua went out his way (maybe because He knew that political correctness would reign someday) to tell us that we could judge; in that we can judge the fruit that another is producing. He stated that if that fruit was not good fruit; if it was counterfeit fruit on the tree; then those branches should be cut off. Paul further states that people that do such things should be shunned by the true believers until they come to repentance.

So you see, the enemy has infiltrated the church and adulterated scripture much like he originally corrupted Yahweh’s words to Adam and Chava which led to the fall of mankind from their originally state of godliness with Yahweh. In the same way there are charlatans running around today using the same tactics to divide the races. Bear in mind that there will probably always be divisions between races and peoples that live outside of Mashiach, but we see it is arising in the Fellowship of The Elect now and it is bothersome.

There are two high profile individuals out in the world that seem to like to race bait and divide whatever good can be done through the blood of Yeshua and the power of His saving Grace. Sadly, these two men call themselves “reverends” and because of this it appears to the world that they actually are true believers in Yeshua, thus making the world take hold of their message, whatever way they choose to present it at the time at hand. I will not put the title of “reverend” in front of the names of these two men because as far as I am concerned they are false shepherds and they sow the seeds of hatred and discord.

As I said before, we are able to and exhorted in scripture to look at the fruit of these men and it is permissible to also look at the foundation upon which they stand. If their foundation is faulty and others try to build upon it then those others are in danger of being on the rooftops of these men when the waves come crashing against their houses and could perish. If it can be shown that these men are evil and they do not have the best interest of people at hand then they should be exposed. I hope to show that these two men are plants of the enemy of Mashiach and that their goal in life is to cause division and to make a lot of money while doing that.

I feel that the actions of these two men are quite evident because every time they show up at an event they seem to pour the gasoline of hatred onto people and ignite them into a frenzied fire of hatred and riotous dissent. They seem to be quite adept at knowing just how far to go so as to ignite a riot but not place themselves into harm’s way or in the light of suspicion. They have ensconced themselves so well in the population which they pretend to support yet they do not live within the confines of that population and they seem to disappear when the peaceful demonstration turns into a riot. They then are heard as a voice of calm from without the melee and far from harm. It is true that Sharpton has been arrested a few times but it usually has been for civil disobedience, not the mayhem that comes later.

We first have to look at the title that they have bestowed upon themselves.

REVEREND:

Syllabification: (rev-erend)                                                                                                                   Pronunciation / ‘rev(a)rand, ‘rev(a)rnd

adjective

(usually Reverend)

  • used as a title or form of address to members of the clergy: the Reverend Jesse Jackson

noun – informal

a member of the clergy

Origin

late Middle English: from Old French, or from Latin reverendus  ‘person to be revered’, gerundive of revereri (revere) [http://oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/reverend]

We see from the definition that a “reverend” is someone is to be revered. But let’s look at the word “revered” to see what it means, and especially what the synonyms to this word are:

Definition of REVERE

To Show devoted deferential honor to: regard of worthy of great honor <revere the aged> <revere tradition>

Synonyms: adore, deify, glorify, worship, reverence, venerate

So a reverend is someone who should be shown deferential treatment. That means that you show him honor above others. Deference means to show respect and esteem that is due to an individual in regard to their status. However, since respect has to be earned, we need to esteem someone based on the content of their character as it has to do with the position that they hold. For instance, I hold General Patton in a high honor as a general because he proved himself to be a great general by his actions and his victories. If Patton was a loser then I would in not hold him in high honor. I hold David Wilkerson in high honor because he was an awesome man of Yahweh, but I do not revere him like I revere Yeshua. A simple look at the synonyms of “revere” seem to suggest that the person that holds the title of Reverend should be adored, deified, glorified, worshipped and venerated; all of these words suggest honoring a god-man rather than just a great man who has earned his greatness. To be labeled as “reverend” seems to me to be a far reach over the edge and almost blasphemous.

A few years ago I was speaking at a conference and the words that I spoke and that another speaker spoke also, offended a lot of people who did not hold to the doctrine that we were trying to show them. We were showing that belief in UFOs and extraterrestrials were in fact a religion and we tried that religion in a court using Biblical Scripture as well as the testimony of some scientists and former victims of alien abduction. In essence, we proved that the entities that masquerade around as “extraterrestrials” are in fact fallen angels. When it was all over, and those whom we offended complained to the Roswell City Council we were in effect banned from speaking at any city sponsored seminar. You see, we were firm in our assertion that what we believed was true and we were not going to bend or compromise. Compromise is always the sign of a weak individual and weakness should not be revered for sure but instead it should be seen bad character trait; one that should be dishonored, not honored.

There was another individual who was known by these same people as one who would bend and compromise. I overheard one of the offended people speaking out in the foyer and he said this; he said “that is why we like *** ****** because he is willing to not be so rigid and he doesn’t force things down our throats.” The “world” recognized this man because he was willing to agree with them in order to get into their good graces, to drink with them at bars and to compromise what he really believed (if he indeed did believe it) in order to be popular; and he was popular because of that. If you tell the truth in this world the world will hate you. If you compromise it will love you and parade you before everyone.

I said all of that to say this. These two people; Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton do compromise. Now, I am assuming that they have at least one sanctified bone in their bodies to make that statement. They wear the title of Reverend on their sleeve and they light up when they are announced with that title. The world reveres them because they appear to care about people and they are self appointed spokesmen for people. They are basically messianic figures for the black community, however they are not lambs, they are more like jackals in their character. In essence, if they truly are believers in Yeshua and His Gospel then they are at the very best trying to serve two masters and as we know from scripture, that is impossible. They want to wear the title of Reverend so that it appears that they are Holy Men, but the fruit that they bear is not good fruit, but rotten and stinking fruit, and their branches will be cut off one day.

So what about these men. When they are not walking around inciting people into a froth of riotous violence what are they doing to prove that they are holy men. Again, we have to look at their fruit. The foundation of a tree is its root system. If the foundation is corrupt then the rest of the tree will be corrupt also. Let’s look at a scripture that pretty well describes people like Jackson and Sharpton:

For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces. Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened. Zechariah 11:16-17

We also must examine that Scripture says about the character and life of those who choose to be called a bishop or deacon. While the title of reverend is not mention in these scriptures we have to believe that these definitions must reflect on reverends also because in the ecclesiastical order a “reverend” lies between the offices of deacon and bishop. So what does Scripture say should be the demeanor of a reverend? Let’s see what Scripture says:

This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, no greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 3:1-13

We can get a glimpse of what a person’s character is by what they believe and/or endorse. Scripture says:

And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. Mark 7:21-23

Aside from race, which I think everyone knows what Al Sharpton’s views are; what are his feelings about some of the more charged issues. Since Scripture says that life is sacred and that Yahweh is all for preserving life, what does Sharpton believe about abortion? Does he hold a Christian stance, which he should if he titles himself to be a Reverend. What about homosexuality, which the Bible says is an abomination? What are his personal thoughts?

Abortion:

Q: How do you feel about abortion?

A: I think women should have the right to choose what happens to their own life, body and choices. [Source: Concord Monitor / WashingtonPost.com on-line Q&A Nov 5, 2003]

——

I want to conserve Roe v. Wade. [Source: Interview on FOX Mar 6, 2003]

——

My religion says that abortion is wrong. And while I may believe that life begins when the sperm meets the egg, and that only God should decide whether to take a life, I will not stand in the way of a woman’s right to choose. If women do not have a right to choose, then it’s a civil rights violation. [Source: Al On America, by Rev. Al Sharpton, p. 89 Jan. 01, 2002]

——

I would only appoint justices to the Supreme Court who are for women having the right to choose whether or not they will have an abortion. Now, I can believe something without having to impose my beliefs on others. That’s true separation of church and state. [Source: Al On America, by Rev. Al Sharpton, p. 89 Jan 1, 2002]

 So it’s pretty clear that Al Sharpton is all for abortion. He even chooses the decision of Roe vs. Wade and a woman’s right to her own body, over Yahweh and Scripture. Al is right about one thing, he has religion, not a relationship with Yeshua. Yet even with that, he states that his religion is against abortion, and, he states that only God can dictate when a person dies; yet he gives the political correct answer and says that if a woman is denied the right to what happens to her body (the PC way of saying abortion) then her civil rights are being violated. SO I guess that Al holds the civil rights in more reverence than he does Scripture, or the God of Scripture. Bad choice Al.

Views on Homosexuality:

Al Sharpton says that he is a American Baptist. What is the overall Baptist Church doctrine say about homosexuality?

As with most issues, there is a diversity of views of members of Baptist churches on homosexuality. However, the majority of established Baptist churches condemn homosexual behavior. Those Baptists who hold that homosexuality is sinful also teach that homosexual sin can be forgiven through Christ if repentance is shown.

Nevertheless, Baptists generally believe that homosexuality must be an issue that is approached with compassion and love. Dr. Albert Mohler, President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, emphasizes that: “Our response to persons involved in homosexuality must be marked by genuine compassion. But a central task of genuine compassion is telling the truth, and the Bible reveals a true message we must convey. Those seeking to contort and subvert the Bible’s message are not responding to homosexuals with compassion. To lie is never compassionate — and their lie leads unto death.” [http://www.albertmohler.com/documents/HomosexualityBible.pdf]

And in the words of the American Baptist Church itself, they state at the American Baptist Convention:

NOVEMBER 2005: “The General Board voted “To amend the document entitled We Are American Baptists by adding the following statement to the section A Biblical People: Who submit to the teaching of Scripture that God’s design for sexual intimacy places it within the context of marriage between one man and one woman, and acknowledge that the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Biblical teaching” [http://www.abc-usa.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/homosexuality1.pdf]

Conversely, what does Al Sharpton believe about homosexuality?

Al Sharpton, a Baptist minister and Civil rights leader, during his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004 said that asking whether gays or lesbians should be able to get married was insulting: “That’s like saying you give blacks, or whites, or Latinos the right to shack up – but not get married […] It’s like asking ‘do I support black marriage or white marriage’. . . . The inference of the question is that gays are not like other human beings”. [Sharpton Chides Black Churches Over Homophobia, Gay Marriage, Dyana Bagby, Houston Voice, January 24, 2006]

And in an article written by Al Sharpton:

REV. AL SHARPTON ON GAY MARRIAGE DEBATE: EQUALITY INCLUDES EVERYONE

Opinion

by Rev. Al Sharpton March 27,2013 at 10:33 AM

Our founding fathers created a nation built on the power of its citizens and drafted the U.S. Constitution to guard against tyranny by any singular or majority power.

As Americans, it is up to each and every one of us to fight injustice and inequality when we are faced with it. Today, we are faced with such injustice in the form of discrimination against same-sex couples, who deserve the same freedom to marry as anyone else.

We cannot be part-time advocates for justice. When we fail to stand up to tyranny, we leave an opening for an attack on our own civil rights. The issue is not about being gay or straight but about the civil rights of Americans who are seeking to have the same rights and protections as their brothers and sisters across this great nation.

We can’t stand on the sidelines

Certainly, having the same rights and protections must apply to marriage: the cornerstone of our families, our neighborhoods, and society at large. We cannot stand on the sidelines as loving and committed gay and lesbians are denied the freedom to marry. Our fellow LGBT citizens are faced with discrimination in their jobs, their communities, and their everyday lives. Because of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and state laws like California’s discriminatory Proposition 8 legislation banning same-sex marriage, gay and lesbian couples are treated as second-class citizens.

That’s why the American people are demanding change. According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, a bipartisan majority of Americans — 58 percent – already support the freedom to marry. That number leaps to 81 percent among voters under 30.

The African-American community has played an important role in our country’s evolution on this issue. Our president, as well as our religious, civil rights, and community leaders have increasingly recognized the similarity in our struggles – and the importance of standing together in the face of oppression. A majority of African-Americans now support the freedom to marry for same-sex couples and recognize that equal rights for gay and lesbian couples change nothing in our marriages, our churches, or our faith.

Gay marriage is not a threat to religious freedom

One of the key questions before the Supreme Court this week is whether the freedom to marry infringes on religious freedom. As a Baptist minister, religious freedom is something that I believe in deeply and feel is intrinsically woven into the fabric of our nation. But just as I believe that religious freedom allows me the freedom to preach and believe as I choose, it also means that I do not have the right to impose my beliefs on anyone else. It should not be within anyone’s power to tell a religious institution that they cannot marry a loving, committed same-sex couple in their faith.

I am urging the Supreme Court to end DOMA and to extend the freedom to marry to all couples: gay or straight. It’s the right thing to do, and it is crucial for our nation to affirm that we are a nation that values freedom and the equal treatment of all our citizens under the law.

Rev. Al Sharpton is president of the National Action Network and the host of MSNBC’s “Politics Nation.”  [Source: http://thegrio.com/2013/03/27/rev-al-sharpton-on-gay-marriage-debate-equality-includes-everyone/]

So it is very easy to see that Sharpton fails to see the divide between what belongs to Caesar and what belongs to Yahweh. He places civil rights over Biblical Scripture and the thoughts of the God that he pretends to serve.

As I clearly said above in this article; we cannot serve two masters. Scripture says so:

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24

It is clear that Sharpton is trying to serve two masters. He wants to lean on his supposed Christian foundation but he also wants to champion civil rights by being the messiah for the African American Community. He wants to bear the title of one who is supposed to live in peace and teach others to live in peace while at the same time he whips individuals and crowds up into a riotous frenzy. He wants to have his cake and eat it too, so to speak. He is the antithesis of Dr. Martin Luther King. King was a man of peace and his actions showed it consistently. King’s drive and purpose was to bring people together and his marches were peaceful. King paid the ultimate price for being Godly; he paid it with his blood and nobody will ever forget the image of him; who he was and what he strove for.

SO WHAT ABOUT JESSEE JACKSON?:

Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr. (born Jesse Louis Burns; October 8, 1941) is an American civil rights activist and Baptist minister. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesse_Jackson]

I have read quite a bit about both Jackson and Sharpton. I think that if I was asked to talk to one or the other I would choose Jackson. Why do I say this? First, Jackson was actually educated in a Christian (well it might have been Christian back then but not now) University and he received an ordination from this school. He wasn’t ordained by a pastor friend like Sharpton was. Jackson studied and did his homework, so to speak.

Other reasons why I would prefer to talk to Jackson over Sharpton is Jackson has been involved in a variety of things. He once held public office. He has on several occasions flown to other nations and procured the release of political prisoners and prisoners of war. He just seems to give a damn about things rather than being only a rabble rouser.

Having said those good things about Jessee Jackson one has to look at the other side. He in addition to Sharpton seems to show up when high profile black vs. white issues come into the limelight. He reminds me of a shyster lawyer that follows ambulances so that he can give his card to the injured so that he can sue, sue, sue in the cases where he thinks he can get the camera time and moral kudos.

One such case is illustrated below and led to quite an embarrassment for Mr. Jackson:

Involvement in the Duke Lacrosse Team Controversy

In 2006, Jesse Jackson promised the Rainbow/Push Coalition would pay the college tuition for Crystal Mangum. Mangum made false rape allegations against members of Duke University’s men’s lacrosse team who had hired her as a stripper. Jackson said it would not matter if Mangum fabricated her story, the tuition offer would still be good. [http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/1091599/]

As it turned out Crystal Mangum did lie and during the trial her testimony was torn to shreds. Originally the news media had made this story out to be a poor black woman who was gang raped by a few white college students. When it was found out that the young woman was a avid liar, Jackson sort of left town with his tail between his legs. To make it seem like his actions weren’t politically motivated he offered to keep the tuition offer on the table for the false accuser. Would a true man of Yahweh do that? Personally, I would have retracted the offer simply because it was made in good faith to someone who it turns out was a disingenuous person. However, Jackson’s motivations were pure or whether they were to save face we’ll cut him some slack I guess.

We looked above at Sharpton and how he feels about some key issues that face out society and we saw that he failed in so many ways, at least from the standpoint of being a supposed “reverend.” How does Jackson’s character hold up where these issues are concerned? Is he a genuine and scripturally based man, or is he just another politically correct shill? Let’s look at his beliefs and some other character traits shall we?

Stand on abortion:

Although Jackson was one of the most liberal members of the Democratic Party, his position on abortion was originally more in line with pro-life views. Within one month after the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, legalized abortion, Jackson began a PUSH campaign against the decision, calling abortion murder and declaring that Jesus and Moses might not have been born if abortion had been available in ancient times. Jackson’s strong rhetoric on abortion temporarily alienated one of his major supporters, Dr. T.R.M Howard, a black physician who made a living from performing abortions.In 1975, Jackson endorsed a plan for a constitutional amendment banning abortion. He also endorsed the Hyde Amendment, which bars the funding of abortions through the federal Medicaid program. Writing in a 1977 National Right to Life Committee News report, Jackson argued that the basis for Roe v. Wade – the right to privacy – was also a premise that had been used to justify slavery and the treatment of slaves on the plantations. Jackson and decried what he believed was the casual taking of life, and the decline in society’s value system. However, Jackson later adopted a pro-choice view that abortion is a right and that the government should not prevent a woman from having an abortion. [http://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/users/rauch/nvp/consistent/   mccarthy_jackson.html]

So, at the beginning Jackson was set against abortion but as the tide of public opinion (at least according to the media) changed and stated that most Americans favored abortion Jackson’s opinion changed also. Seems like the tide of public opinion is more important to Jessee Jackson than Scripture, or Scripture’s God is. Another person that tries to serve two masters.

So what about Jackson’s “National Rainbow Coalition?”

Jesse Jackson was a Presidential candidate in both 1984 and 1988.

Jackson took on the idea of the Rainbow Coalition and ran with it. It its own, the idea of forming a political group for equal rights of minorities and the oppressed isn’t a bad idea and was probably needed according to many. However let’s look at the group and who it represented and even more importantly, the “expanded” group of persons that it became an advocate for:

The National Rainbow Coalition (Rainbow Coalition for short) was a political organization that grew out of Jesse Jackson’s 1984 presidential campaign. During the campaign Jackson began speaking to a “Rainbow Coalition”, an idea created by Fred Hampton, of the disadvantaged and welcomed voters from a broad spectrum of races and creeds.The goals of the campaign were to demand social programs, voting rights, and affirmative action for all groups that had been neglected by Reaganomics.Jackson’s campaign blamed President Ronald Reagan’s policies for reduction of government domestic spending, causing new unemployment and encouraging economic investment outside of the inner cities, while they discouraged the rebuilding of urban industry. The industrial layoffs caused by these policies hit the black and other minority populations particularly hard.At the 1984 Democratic National Convention on July 18, 1984 in San Francisco, California, Jackson delivered the Keynote address, entitled “The Rainbow Coalition”. The speech called for Arab Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, youth, disabled veterans, small farmers, lesbians and gays to join with African Americans and Jewish Americans for political purpose. Whereas the purpose of PUSH had been to fight for economic and educational opportunities, the Rainbow Coalition was created to address political empowerment and public policy issues.After his unsuccessful bid for the Democratic nomination in 1984, Jackson attempted to build a broad base of support among groups that “were hurt by Reagan administration policies” – racial minorities, the poor, small farmers, working mothers, the unemployed, some labor union members, gays, and lesbians. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow/PUSH]

Again, it would be a noble cause to champion for those who one thinks are oppressed; those who through unforeseen events, birth, race and economic reasons were seen to be oppressed. Let’s look however at these groups. Minorities are oppressed people who are denied rights because of race, creed or color. People of race and color are born into their race or color and discrimination against them is wrong no matter what way you look at it. People of creed (belief or philosophy) have taken on their belief’s because of philosophical or religious conviction and discrimination against them is wrong also; granted that their philosophy is peaceful and productive. The poor, small farmers, working mothers and the unemployed have been placed into their economic conditions because of societal conditions. Homosexuals, bi-sexuals and others who CHOOSE deviant behavior are discriminated against because their lifestyle goes against nature and especially against the Word of Yahweh. For a supposed “man of God” to champion for their rights and/ or their cause is plain wrong and not something that those who trust and love Yahweh should be involved in. We love the sinner but hate the sin. Hating the sin means we do not promote it or enable it in a person’s life; but Jackson seems intent on doing so, why? Perhaps because it is politically correct and like Sharpton, championing “civil rights” is more important to Jackson than championing the Word of Yahweh.

Jackson is Anti-Jewish and Anti-Israel and Pro-Muslim:

Jackson was criticized in the early 1980s for refusing to repudiate Louis Farrakhan, for his support of a Palestinian state, and for remarks made to a reporter where he referred to New York City as “Hymietown”. [Joyce Purnick and Michael Oreskes (November 29, 1987). “Jesse Jackson Aims for the Mainstream”. The New York Times.] [Larry J. Sabato’s Feeding Frenzy (July 21, 1998). “Jesse Jackson’s ‘Hymietown’ Remark – 1984”. Washington Post.] Note: Hymie is a racial slur toward Jewish people.

And in addition:

Jackson also made other remarks evidencing a negative attitude toward Jews including saying that Richard Nixon was less attentive to poverty in the U.S. because “four out of five [of Nixon’s top advisers] are German Jews and their priorities are on Europe and Asia”; that he was “sick and tired of hearing about the Holocaust”; and that there are “very few Jewish reporters that have the capacity to be objective about Arab affairs”. Shortly after President Jimmy Carter fired U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young for meeting with Palestine Liberation Organization representatives, Jackson and other black leaders began publicly endorsing a Palestinian state, with Jackson calling Israel’s prime minister a “terrorist”, and then soliciting Arab-American financial support [Frum, David (2000). How We Got Here: The ’70s. New York, New York: Basic Books. p. 273. ISBN 0-465-04195-7.]

And yet another thing:

Jackson has since apologized for some of these remarks, but they badly damaged his presidential campaign, as “Jackson was seen by many conservatives in the United States as hostile to Israel and far too close to Arab governments.” [Elliott, Justin (2010-12-16) A White House campaign funded by … Libya?, Salon.com]

In my estimation, anyone who is truly Born Again and has read Biblical Scripture and believes Bible Scripture to be the inspired Word of Yahweh all tend to believe that we are to stand by Israel. We don’t necessarily have to agree with what secular Israel does all of the time, but we are to stand with them, love them and pray for them. Jackson’s statements can only prove that he does not have a biblical knowledge of what is right and what is wrong. Again, he bears a title that says he should be revered as a sanctified man of Yahweh, yet he bears no fruit of being such, in fact, he is the antithesis of what a believer should stand for and support.

Member Of A Secret Society:

Another red flag that anyone with discernment should see is the fact that, where Jackson is concerned, he’s a Freemason:

On Memorial Day, May 25, 1987, Jesse was made a Master Mason on Sight by Grand Master Senter of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Illinois; thereby making him a Prince Hall Freemason. [http://www.phaohio.org/mwphgloh/likfm.html] [ The History of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Ohio F&AM 1971 – 2011: The Fabric of Freemasonry. Columbus, Ohio: Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Ohio F&AM. p. 414. ISBN 978-0615632957.]

I know I’ll get letters from Masons who will argue that the Masonic Fellowship is not Satanic but countless testimonies prove that it is truly Luciferian in nature and we know that Lucifer fell from grace to become Satan. If you’re a younger member, in the lower grades of Masonry, you’ll find out when you climb the ladder and I can only pray that you’ll have the gonadal fortitude to get out before it is too late. Here is a newsflash for Jessee Jackson and anyone who claims to be a believer in Yeshua and a member of the Masonic Lodge; you are serving two masters and if you don’t take that seriously you’ll end serving Satan and denying Yeshua and you’ll be damned forever. Don’t argue with me, take it up with Yahweh Yeshua. Jesus Christ, that is.

Summation:

Yeshua said that we are never to condemn anyone:

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Matthew 7:1-2

The Greek word for Judge in this passage, and in so many others is “krino” and in the proper rendering it means to “condemn,” or to “give a judicial decision.” There is no doubt that some who have read this blog entry will contend that this is what I have done. In effect, what I have written is opposite of what you might assert.

What I have done is what any good prosecuting attorney would do. I have brought evidence, citing sources, showing that Sharpton and Jackson are false shepherds and maybe in some ways false prophets.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matthew 7:15-20

Some might assert that Sharpton and Jackson have never claimed to be prophets. Well, that might be true, but the “New Testament Prophet” is different in some ways from what we commonly know as a prophet from the time before Yeshua. Let’s look at one meaning of the word “prophets,” mentioned the scripture above

prophētēs

in the religious assemblies of the Christians, they were moved by the Holy Spirit to speak, having power to instruct, comfort, encourage, rebuke, convict, and stimulate, their hearers

Of course, a false prophet, using the terms cited above of a prophet, would do the opposite of a person called to pastor people; they would conduct the following:

They would have the power to give false instruction, cause strife, enforce discouragement, rebuke in unrighteousness, condemn instead of convict and stimulate their hearers not into peace and love, but into hate and discord. Does this sound like Jackson and Sharpton, of course it does. Calling them false shepherds isn’t judging them, it is pointing out that they aren’t acting like a true shepherd appointed by Yahweh. Their own actions point them out for who they are.

It is interesting that the word “know” in the “know them by their fruits,” also denotes that by the actions of false prophets and teachers, we will know them to be false. The Greek word for “know” is:

epiginōskō

1) to become thoroughly acquainted with, to know thoroughly

a) to know accurately, know well

2) to know

a) to recognise

1) by sight, hearing, of certain signs, to perceive who a person is

b) to know i.e. to perceive

c) to know i.e. to find out, ascertain

d) to know i.e. to understand

So in essence, we can know who Jackson and Sharpton are by hearing what they say, seeing what they do and perceiving by certain signs that they themselves show us.

Sharpton says that he’s a Reverend but he whips people up into a frenzy to cause discord between black and Hispanics and whites. He does really nothing to foster peace and never really has anything nice to say about anyone who is not African American. He claims to be a man of Yahweh, yet he is opposed to Yahweh’s scripture where homosexuality and abortion is concerned. He has said more than once that he esteems “civil rights” over Yahweh’s opinion about the subjects above. He race bates and has done more to divide blacks and whites than anyone else in history. These are not the actions of a servant of Yahweh; they are the actions of a puppet of Satan.

Jackson is a mirror image of Sharpton but has done some good; hopefully for good reasons but maybe for image and political ambition. In addition to Sharpton’s plate of iniquity, Jackson also has a vile hatred for Jews and Israel and a unnatural love for Islam. He was probably an adherent to Christlam far in advance of Rick Warren. And lastly, Jackson is a member of the Masonic Religion; a person that is giving the air of serving Yahweh while at the same time serving Lucifer.

So there you have it. All of the fruit of these men served up on a dish for everyone to see. Know them by their fruit and know them for who they really are. They’re not what they purport to be, but if you judge them through any eyes other than Messiah’s eyes you probably won’t see their fruit and you’ll wholeheartedly disagree with the evidence that I’ve produced through my research. If that is the case, all I can do is pray that Yahweh opens your eyes. AMEN.
