Why the Hollywood Obsession with Zombies?

An article of personal thoughts, concerns,
musings and speculations in accordance with Revelation

What are they trying to tell us?

 

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. Joel chapter 2 verse 28.

I would just like to say before we continue; that since Satan and his rebellious angels have such immense powers, that we as mere humans truly can not grasp the magnitude of these abilities; nor their full potential. So it is therefore I feel not out of the question to conclude, that they have through the promise of wealth; power, lust and greed enlisted a vast array of mortal conspirators throughout the ages. There by, truly covering every conceivable possibility. In their vain attempts, to completely bring about their dark lords hideous plans for mankind, to total and absolute fruition. Leading them, too their inevitable destruction.

A prelude: To my personal thoughts, and speculations.

At the time of this writing, just when I thought I was finished…silly me! Some items have come to light [no pun] that I feel need to be addressed. So in the sincere hopes of avoiding confusion amongst “The brethren” I will attempt to bring these items to the fore as best I can. Here now are some of those thoughts images and feelings that I’ve not even shared with my wife, till now. It was during the early summer of 2009 while Mlady and I were excitedly awaiting the start of the Christian symposium on aliens held here in Roswell. That since I knew I was going to be meeting Michael Heiser, whom now is Dr. Michael S Heiser, by the way. I figured that I should finally read is book Facade. Of which I certainly, would recommend. While reading this book I had several of those “nagging thoughts” that I hope you will read about in this writing. So I naturally shoved it aside, and continued to enjoy my read. But alas, this was not to be…those “thoughts and images” would not let up! I was though heavily struck by the idea, or the premise of the book, that although the book used fallen angels in it, these angelic rebels were “behind” the secret government UFO projects as operating in the shadows pulling the strings as it were. While not being directly portrayed, as the typical grey “aliens” running amok, abducting humans. It was during that moment, in which those thoughts, images and voices would not stop. So just what were these intrusive thoughts/whisperings, images and feelings? Locusts! I remember thinking locusts; you’ve got to be kidding me! As I dwelt upon this, it was at this time that the zombie thing had reared its ugly head, again! What I did not understand, was why thoughts of locusts and zombies kept running together? It wasn’t until about October [ish] this same year, that all of these weird images, thoughts and such had now started to became much, much clearer.

Mlady and I like to watch the Sci-Fi channel on occasion; we view it [no pun] simply as entertainment, albeit twisted and ungodly to be sure. We recognize this, and treat it as such. Which are why, their carefully crafted, subliminal messages have no effect upon us. What were we watching? You got it…a show on zombies! Now those plaguing items were really slamming me, and hard too.  Again I kept seeing [as in my minds eye] locust and zombies together, they are always together never separate. So while watching this “program” it was a scene of a secret laboratory, of course, what else? that the plot of the show went sour. Gee…ya think!? It was at that moment I heard a voice quietly say “pay attention”…Yes Sir! I then started to see, again in my minds eye, “stinging” locusts. So when I then realized I was now ‘back’ watching the program, and the first zombies appeared, was when everything had gelled together.

I got it! I made the connection! Because for the better part of the last year or more, I have been seriously plagued by recurring “images, thoughts, and feelings” that have kept [and still do] keep rolling around in the recesses of my mind. Usually it’s [what I feel] is our Lord urging me to investigate and or write about something. As usual I always try to dismiss or ignore these mental images, thoughts and feelings, and as usual I fail. I have never thought of myself as a writer, and I still don’t. My use of syntax is probably not the best, nor is my grammar or spelling. As someone whom was first ‘led’ by our Lord to create a website you can imagine my reticence. My first thoughts were “Awww come on Lord!” you know full well I am not even close to being equipped for this task. I can’t do it! I don’t know how, and of course I don’t want to do this! Silly me, I truly should have known better! I should have had more faith and trust not just in silly ole me mind you. But what’s even more important, was to have…

More faith and trust, in our Glorious and Sovereign Lord Christ Jesus!

So as the title says…why the Hollywood obsession with zombies? This question puts the finger squarely on those “images, thoughts, and feelings” that I have been having, and trying so hard to ignore. We as Christians, being children of the most high God, at some time or another come to the realization that there really is no such thing as coincidence. For those Christians whom do believe that coincidence actually does exist, I would like to most humbly request that you either re-read your Holy book, or please read it more often, hopefully with copious amounts of prayer. I only say this, because if God is truly in control, then coincidence has no basis! Our Bible contains in it everything that we as Man/Adam kind has and will ever face in this world. What I mean by this is that when something happens in our world, that on the surface appears to be by ‘coincidence’ you can bet your bottom dollar it can be found somewhere in scripture. But for me! This danged zombie thing just will not go away! Does this sick, horrid and extremely freaky concept scare or frighten me? No it does not. Although for some reason, there is a nagging concern. Given our governments recent attempt this flu season to hurry and get everyone inoculated for the H1N1 Swine flu vaccine. I do feel it was Gods hand that had prevented the mass availability of this highly questionable vaccine to the American public. Yet these nagging concerns remain. Before we start, let me say that once you grasp the concept that TV was created to be a mind control device…the further “ahead of the curve” you will be!

Now finally…to the article shall we?

It was just the other night, that our beloved sister Paradox was over at Mlady’s and my home, graciously helping us fix our computer…again! She had brought over a program to help us rid our computer of Malware, so we, paradox and I were trying to guess how many files would be corrupted. For some reason the number nine kept leaping to the forefront of my mind. So I predicted there would be nine of them, [corrupted files] while this programs running, paradox and I starting talking. As is always the case [thank you Lord Jesus] we had another one of ‘those’ conversations, we were rolling along from one topic to another having a great time. During the course of this most awesome conversation [for some reason] I felt the need to broach the subject of zombies, and what seems to me Hollywood’s constant obsession with them.

What are they trying to tell us?

I started to recount to her a movie from the mid 1960s’s that was called ‘Night of the living dead’ and that it was a comet that flew very close to planet earth that caused the dead to rise, and start attacking and biting people. Thereby causing more zombies to roam around [repeating this cycle] creating more soul less zombies exponentially. Remember these “walking dead” [in the movies] can’t readily die per se’,  it was during this conversation I also mentioned that I couldn’t help but feel that there might be a subliminal connection the book of Revelation. So paradox asked me to grab my Bible, and she started to pour through Revelation, while doing this for some reason, I then told her that the verse we needed would be found in chapter NINE! There is that lack of coincidence thing I was talking about [There is no coincidence] things do happen for a reason! So paradox starts to quickly scan through chapter nine, and “Bam” finds the exact verses we were just talking about! So I will start with the pertinent ‘block’ of scripture that set this whole intriguing conversation into motion. One of my favorite books of the entire Bible…

The book of Revelation.

For the purposes of this article I shall attempt to start from Revelation chapter 9 verses 1 through 10. And expound from there. As clearly, and concisely as is humanly possible for me. Attention all personnel be advised, syntax alert!!!

While not trying to twist or force scripture, this is how those images, thoughts, and feelings seem to fit these verses.

1) And the fifth Angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto earth: And to him was given the keys to the bottomless pit.

“A star fall from heaven”…An angel, either cast out…or purposely sent.

“To him”…Rebellious, or Righteous angel.

2) And he opened the bottomless pit, and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; And the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

“As the”…resembling the.

“Smoke of a great furnace”…Being massively and forcefully ejected.

“Reason of”…The appearance of.

3) And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth:And unto them was given power as the scorpions of the earth have power

“The smoke”…A dark massively forceful and powerful updraft, like swirling swarms.

“Locusts”…Fallen angels masquerading as locusts? Demons or Luciferian created nanotechnology?

“Them”… See locusts above.

“Was given”…Programmed instructions.

“Power as the scorpions”…The ability to inflict a severely poisonous, bite or sting.

4) And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, Neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads

“Them”…Fallen angels, demonic hordes or something else?

“Only those men”…Only the unsaved, members of mankind?

“In their foreheads”…Lack of belief in the Lord God, or understanding/knowledge of God and his word!

5) And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: And their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

“And to them”…Rebel angels, demonic hordes…or again something else?

“Them”…Unsaved humans.

“Torment of a scorpion”…Intense agony due to the infecting bite or sting!

6) And in those days men shall seek death and shall not find it; And shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

“Men shall seek death”…Trying to find ways to die?

“And death shall flee from them”…God will not let them die just yet; there is a purpose to serve.

7) And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were crowns like gold, and there faces were as the faces of men”

“Shapes of”…Appearance of, or looked like.

“Prepared unto battle”…Rigged with armour or armour plated.

8) And they had hair as the *hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of Lions

“Hair of women”…Thunder dome Tina turners? *Sorry I couldn’t resist!*

9) And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

“Breastplates of iron”…Metallic in appearance, as in battle armor.

“The sound of chariots of many horses”…A great thundering or roaring sound.

10) And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men *five months. Revelation Chapter 9 verses 1 through 10   KJV.

“Like unto”…That appeared like.

“Stings”...Needles, pain or agony

“Power was”…Programmed instructions.

As a side note: The number five in the occult realm means death. So here we see men not being able to die for this five month time span. Since Satan has a same [false copy] but opposite [objective] plan for humanity, here we see almighty God withholding death until his objectives are met. Once again, showing humanity he is God with this final supreme exercise of power. In a sense, letting mankind see that if he [God] so chooses, that he can withhold death at his leisure, and for his reasons alone.  Our lord does tell us,

 “My ways are not your ways” and “My thoughts are not your thoughts”

Back to our conversation:

So all of sudden paradox is “whoa” and looks up at me and say’s “I think you’re onto something here!”

I happily thanked her for not thinking me a nut case! Although having someone else confirming my nagging suspicions still doesn’t make me feel all that much better per se’, it is a help none the less! Thank you all the same my dear sister. But wouldn’t you just know it [can a brother get a break?] She then asks me to write an article for the WARN website on the very subject we were talking about! Which I immediately and predictably start to exclaim, Oh uh, uh! Not me man, I am not a writer, and I am certainly not qualified to do this! [Once again silly me] Now for anyone whom knows our beloved sister paradox, when she gives you “that look” and then digs her heels in, you know you’re a dead man walking! [LOL…No pun by the way] So I hesitantly and humbly accepted her gracious offer.

That is why all of you, my beloved brothers and sisters are being subjected to this article! Please accept my deepest and sincerest apologies…

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children Hosea 4 vs.6 KJV.

However…There are many items that oddly enough, do relate to one another here. Let us take “Hollywood” for example. Hollywood is actually a poisonous plant, I do find it interesting that over the decades many people have been warning us that ‘Hollywood Ca’ has been poisoning our society with there movies, and I couldn’t agree more! As to the afore mentioned “Night of the living dead” remember it was caused by a comet passing very close to the earth, assuming I remembered this bit correctly. So here we have some kind of ‘extraterrestrial event’ associated with a comet. Something that I’m sure we all can agree on, is Hollywood and the lame stream media/entertainment industry, have gotten a lot of money mileage out of this subject this past 10-15 years or so [At least] and with all the “Doomsday movies and TV specials” that we have been subjected too. [Isn’t it interesting?] That we find in Revelation chapter eight, verses ten and eleven telling us, I do believe about this very thing!

What are they trying to tell us?

And the third Angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp And it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of the waters;

“A great star”…Meteoroid/comet?

“Burning as it were a lamp”…as in brightly, while leaving a Smokey trail.

And the name of the star is called wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; And many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. Revelation 8 vs. 10 and 11 KJV.

“Wormwood”…Means poison or poisonous.

Most poisons [believe it or not] actually are ‘bitter’ to the palette!

But this accursed zombie thing, what is it about these zombies that just won’t go away? [No pun] Not so much in my mind, but in the entertainment industry! There is something to this, but what? With night of the living dead it was a comet that had started it. But Hollywood today uses some rabid, aggressively freaky virus or some type of radical bacterial contaminant that somehow found its way out of the “ultra secret government lab” [Dulce, Montauk???] as the unholy primer, just like in Resident evil. So where does this idea of secret government bio/genetics labs come from? Hollywood? Actually no, or at least not this time anyway. For those of you whom may not know, it was a top secret Brazilian government genetics lab, that in the mid to late 1950’s that was playing God by tampering with DNA!

What they were doing, was they were crossing the DNA from the very aggressive African honey bee and crossing it with their more passive domestic honey bees. In the hopes of creating a more vigorous, honey producing bee strain. So…You got it!  This ‘experiment’ somehow escaped, that is why we have what’s popularly known today as Killer bees which have now migrated into our great American southwest, and they have been reported here in the Roswell area as of summer 2006! These bees have been killing a lot of poor innocent and unsuspecting people over these many years as they continue to migrate north! So I ask that you indulge me for a moment, and let me stop at this point too offer up a very hearty “Thanks a lot you Godless morons”!!! For your modern secular scientific marvel!

[Sorry]

This be crazy talk!

This article comes from a Saints Against Tyranny reader who sent this to me from the Drudge report.

Now tell me the timing of this isn’t spooky! For some reason though, I couldn’t cut/copy and or paste, the entire article, so I had to do it in bits. Which caused my computer to lock up, and thereby [Of course!] losing the entire Email and the URL. I don’t understand how this could happen…anyone have any ideas?

Israel developing Bionic Hornet!

From the Israeli newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth 17 Nov, 2006.

 hornet

 

Israel is using nanotechnology to try to create a robot no bigger than a hornet that would be able to chase, photograph, and kill its targets, an Israeli newspaper reported. The flying robot nicknamed the “Bionic Hornet” would be able to navigate its way down narrow alleyways to target otherwise unreachable enemies such as rocket launchers. It is one of several weapons being developed by scientists to combat militants. Other research programs include super gloves that would give the user the strength of a “Bionic man” and miniature sensors to detect suicide bombers. The research integrates nanotechnology into Israel’s security department and will find creative solutions to problems the army has been unable to address, according to deputy Prime Minister Shimon Peres. *”Prototypes for the new weapons are expected within three years”.

This news article was published in Nov, 2006. It is now a little over three years.

* Prototype means an operational production model for field testing.

There are just too many similarities for this piece of nanotechnology to be a coincidence, and you all know where I stand on that. It’s on four legs [like a horse] it certainly looks like a locust; it’s made of metal [and] looks armor plated; it has an articulated scorpion like tail, this article does mention the ability to kill, so there’s the stinging and please notice the two little jet engines on its back. If there were a few hundred or thousand of these things flying in a swarm, the ruckus they would make certainly could sound like chariots of many horses running into battle. Don’t you think?

This next section is going to probably upset some folks, this is not my intent.

All I ask is that you keep an open heart and mind, to something that speculative.

These types of micro air vehicles themselves are also created in ‘secret government defense labs’ and specially contracted civilian high security labs, unbeknownst to nearly everyone secretly and directly, ‘overseen’ by Satan’s unholy angels. So it is not really beyond the scope of probability, to see how these ‘micro bugs’ could easily be adapted to carry a satanically created virulent disease of some sort. There by presenting us with a potentially “rabid” zombie civilian population. That for a short time [as in five months] just can not be killed. Let’s expound upon this idea a little bit here. We’ll call this food for thought [No pun] so lets say this scenario actually comes true. Now we have this massive swarm, [truly from hell] stinging “men” with a satanic concoction racing through the bloodstream turning them [men] into a zombie like thing ok? Causing a wild “Rabid” feeding/biting frenzy, exponentially spreading and creating more “zombies” now remember Revelation Chap 9 vs. 6? They can’t die, because death flees from them right!? So don’t forget…This is not a demonic possession! I am talking about.

And in those days men shall seek death and shall not find it; And shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. Revelation Chapter 9 verse 6. KJV.

“Men shall seek death”…Obviously wishing for death, or trying to find ways to die.

“And death shall flee from them”…Because God! Will not let them die just yet; there is a purpose yet to serve.

Which I think is to fulfill his Gods, very own prophesies! Why won’t he let them die? Beats the stuffing out of me!

It’s not my place to question his motives as to why!

 I can hear the rebuttals now! But Mike, what about when God, as the man Jesus, cast out the “Legions” into the swine and they drowned themselves? I would like to humbly suggest that maybe were talking about apples and oranges here. For “example” Apples! Jesus cast out the demons called legion as an example to teach not only his disciples who were with him, but knowing that this would also be recorded for our educational benefit much, much later. Now back to the present shall we? In the above verse from Revelation we find that “Men shall seek death and shall not find it” so much for suicide. We also see that “And death shall flee from them”. Now the oranges! Because we are now in the “End of days”! So what we now have, are two different situations, two different time periods fulfilling two vastly different purposes. As I mentioned so much for suicide, this also includes now getting blasted with a shotgun or even getting their heads cleaved with a shovel! Death shall flee from them, and for five months too boot! All the while this satanic virus is driving “these men” beyond the brink of insanity. I have always heard and been told that the Bible will always prove itself, of or by itself. So this begs the question, so where else in the Bible, do we find these ‘things’ [If you will] being hurt, wounded or killed, and yet not slain? Let us now take a look at the book of Joel!

Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk everyone in his path: And when they shall fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. Joel chapter 2 verse 8 KJV.

So [even if] these poor wretches were demonically possessed!

It is still, almighty Gods will that they should not die regardless…Who then are we to question why?

The way I see it, our forever righteous and glorious Father in heaven, is the ultimate umpire!

However he calls it. Is good with me!

As a side note; I started this article with a picture from the movie I am Legend, if you’ll remember, the movie plot was a ‘Scientific breakthrough’ in curing cancer, which had set that hellish scenario in motion. Of course the hero would be a military biogenetic scientist.

What are they trying to tell us?

So the idea of a secret government genetics lab is not at all out of the question anymore.

Since we now have an actual proven precedent for it with the killer bees incident in Brazil!

So much for these types of “Secret government labs” being theory!

It is this very type of secret laboratory [Directed by Fallen angels] that I feel, very well might give us the scenario mentioned in Revelation 9 vs.1-10 as previously mentioned above. After all many UFO researchers and Crypto-zoologists claim it’s these secret government labs that have given us “Alien human hybrids” and the now infamous “Chupacabra” is there anything to these rumors?…quite possibly! Our beloved sister paradox seems to feel that there is a plethora of Biblical evidence to identify the scriptural ‘locusts’ as these fallen angels. I agree…I do believe there is certainly something to this, most definitely. But my gut instinct also tells me this Biblical locust thing is more than likely a multifold or a multi-mission satanic operation as well!

So is all the above just conjecture on my part? Sure it is…and I do hope I’m wrong! But then again, you go and tell that to these bothersome and nagging suspicions that just will not go away. I do personally think that this ‘locust’ thing mentioned in our Bible is actually a two fold scenario; For example when one considers that Satan took a third of the ‘stars’ of heaven with him, this equates to a whole lot of Rebellious angels right?, leaving plenty to do their masters bidding so even at several thousand, this figure is probably way off the mark!

Then you have the ancient mystery schools which New World Order researchers have more than adequately shown to be involved within every secret society known to man, whom themselves [Secret societies] have been rightfully shown to control the ebb and flow of all the government entities of this world. So I say that it’s really not unfathomable that prophetic Biblical scripture could certainly be talking about this very collusion. This is probably why I just can’t shake that feeling. Because our lame stream luciferian media, for many years now especially after 9-11, have seriously been riding the ‘scare monger’ wagon ever since. Never letting the American public forget the possibility, of not just a nuclear attack on us, but an equally horrifying, and insidious Biological attack upon America as well. Our media?  They just won’t let this subject be!

All the while Hollywood, just keeps on pumping out more and more zombies!

What are they trying to tell us?

 chemtrail02

 

So is our “mass [hysteria] media trying to “sell us” something here? I think so. Are Chemtrails possibly involved? Very well could be. We do have in this modern [?] age, what are known as two stage Biological and Chemical weapons. So Chemtrails could easily be seeding us with the first stage, of these two stage weapons. Or is it that they [the shadow masters] are just capitalizing on their expertly and deliberately contrived, well planned, and orchestrated post Sept 11th national mind manipulation? Either way [Doubt it not!] If and when, we see these horrendous and ungodly events unfold, just remember. Our lame/main stream luciferian media, is not about to come out and tell us the truth, that it’s “Fallen angels” or the Luciferian global elites, as the source of all our ills. What we will frantically hear spewing fourth from them [The Luciferian controlled corp. media] is “a lab experiment gone horribly wrong” Because they have been programming us with this very idea for a very long time, and sadly many panicked people will be listening, hanging onto every word, desperately looking for salvation. From this seemingly hell on earth!

Paradox and I both agree that these luciferian shadow masters, who run Hollywood, are doing two things.

1) Someone is either trying to tell us something [or mayhaps] warn us about something, and

2) We are certainly being “conditioned” for something…Of this, she and I are quite certain!

But zombies!?!?! Give me a break! Like what, demons vampires and Harry Potter aren’t enough for cryin out loud!? Now our beloved pets can be turned into zombies! [I wonder how Paul McCartney and PETA feel about this.]

How then does this happen? Well since the new common denominator is some form of a *Trans species rabid viral/bacterial infection [regardless of source] this actually, narrows it down quite a bit. Because that would then make it the bloodstream as the active path! This is what the term pathogen means; this is the mechanism for the unholy spread of this [allegedly?] fictitious abomination. Again this idea of blood having power is not by coincidence, because we find this very concept in the Bible!

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar To make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Leviticus 17 vs. 11 KJV.

“Life of the flesh”… Our mortal ability to exist.

“Is in the blood”…The blood is everything to our existence.

“Your souls”…Again, self explanatory this would be our spiritual or conscious being. [I think]

*This cross species transmittal of viruses is nothing new to us. We have been told repeatedly by the Luciferian media and their Immoral medical establishment for a couple of decades now, that this ‘is’ what is happening in our world. Never mind the fact that there are far more equally learned medical professional’s and scientific experts from all around the globe, that say this is not medically or even scientifically possible! But with AIDS, SARS, both the Avian and Swine flu’s we are told this is the case. Funny how those opposing ‘expert’ voices are quickly silenced by a ‘media’ black out! I would like to remind you my brothers and sisters, that our beautiful and glorious all mighty Father in heaven himself stated…“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”!

So since it is “the blood that makes atonement for the soul” Thank you Lord! Is it then only the unsaved that get turned into zombies in these movies and TV programs, [or maybe in real life?] Because, I don’t know if anyone has noticed or not with these freaky and creepy zombie ‘transformations’ but it certainly looks like another form of “possession” to me gang! My heart tells me that we, who are born again and covered by the blood of Christ, now carry an enormous measure of security from these unclean dark ones who continue to try and assault us daily. Again I will re-quote this verse because we see this concept I feel, solidly expressed in the book of Revelation.

And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, Neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads Revelation 9 vs. 4 KJV.

“Them”…Fallen angels? demonic hordes…or something else?

“Only those men”…The unsaved members of “Mankind”.

“In their foreheads”…Lack of knowing the Lord God, and or understanding/knowledge of Gods word!

I also find it most curious that in the movies the only way you can kill these zombies and make sure they don’t get up again, is to inflict a very severe or deadly blow to the head! I will admit that the one thing that does creep me out with zombies is aside from the overly stretched mouth thing, is the getting back up! For some reason it just does! So with all these seemingly connected parallels please trust me when I say I am not trying to ‘overtly’ make a case for the potential of zombies in the end times, not at all. Although it does look that way [Even from scripture] I know. Yet beloved brothers and sisters, we can not altogether rule out something like this happening. The scriptures clearly tell us that something extraordinary at the supernatural/paranormal level is going to happen on planet earth. Is this what all those FEMA camps are for, mass public isolation and quarantine? Or is it to round up all of the Saints for extermination…being Lucifer’s final solution?

I would like to take a couple of moments, to thank you the reader, or those of you whom have stuck it out. Thank you!

As the webmaster of saintsagainsttyranny.com some of my objectives are to get people to start thinking critically and to raise people’s awareness of the mass social brainwashing, or conditioning of our society and culture, through the manipulations of what I call the lame stream media. One of the more prevalent outcomes of this conditioning process is what I call the “Knee jerk”. In our beloved Amerika today, one cannot express themselves anymore with out having people flip out and play the “Drama card” this truly breaks my heart. So if some of you are offended by this article, I humbly ask that you keep in mind, that these are my personal thoughts that I am sharing with you. As I was asked, to write this for public posting. I did not do the seeking. This is only an article of what ifs, or maybes, that’s all! Like I tell everyone on my website, your comments, thoughts, opinions and criticisms are always most welcome! I only ask that you be civil. Thank you so very much for taking your valuable time to read this article. If you think this was deep! Just wait till you [hopefully] see my musings on the universe from a Christian astronomer’s perspective!

So in closing I leave you with this final thought.

Just what is…Hollywood trying to tell us?

LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS

Increased UFO Manifestations During Christian Events
And Prophetic Events Concerning Israel

By David Ben Yakov

 

 

Here at the Delusion Resistance we are dedicated to finding delusions and deceptions, and when they are found, we are obligated to expose them and to offer the reader Biblical insight to these deceptions. In the case of every deed of darkness, when light is shed upon them, they shrivel up and die. We have to remember though, that when a delusion or deception dies, its maker usually tries to present it with a different packaging; a new facade so as to fool those have gotten victory over its past incarnation. We also keep an eye out for any “reintroduction” of past delusions.

The UFO phenomena is a reintroduction of something that was introduced into the world on numerous occasions. Each time this lie is introduced it is packaged in such a way so as to be accepted by the society that is contemporary of its time. In modern occult folklore, this is called “shape-shifting.” Cultures who adhere to belief in shape-shifting believe that animals can become people and vise verse. Some believe that people can shape-shift to become other people and such. Satan takes things up to a grander scale; he shape-shifts events and belief systems. Whether it be the Medieval times with it’s fairies, ogres and trolls; some Pacific Island tribe that believed that it could hear from animals or trees, or our contemporary time when people commune with occupants of UFO’s, the stories all have similarities, and that is because they have the same author.

In our modern society it seems that there are two areas of deception that are competing for the same prize. One could say that the psychic, or channeler is the main focus of this deception. They try to predict the future using various means, but they never seem to get the clear picture. The second evil contenders for the souls of men are those who claim to come from other places in our universe; those who purport themselves to be “extraterrestrial” in nature. But when one does a short study of the two, that person finds out that the two contenders are really not contenders, but they are running a relay race, racing around the track in a nonstop loop, handing over the baton time and time again in an effort to deceive those who are watching the race. The channelers now claim to be getting messages from the “aliens” and the aliens who deal directly with abductees or contactees are pronouncing the same message that the practitioners of the occult have told for years. The tactics have much akin to the political realm here in the United States. The media makes a big deal about there being two different political parties and they claim that we have a choice in who gets into office. But what they do not tell you is that the two parties are both reaching for the same goal, albeit through different channels, but the same goal. And as each election time rolls around it becomes quite evident to those who scrutinize the two political entities, that they become more and more like each other. So it is with the grand delusion. It’s like watching two different new channels on television; each is a different vehicle, but the picture and the news item is the same. Anyway, I digress.

Evil’s Two Purposes:

Those who have read through the Bible can’t help but see that the evil one has but two purposes in creation. The first goal of course is the pollution of mankind by way of perpetuation of sin so that the souls of many of Yahweh’s creation (mankind) do not enter into Yahweh’s rest, but are consigned to eternal separation from Yahweh. Scripture is quite clear that Yahweh loves His creation and desires all to be saved:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16-17

We have the words of Yeshua Himself concerning Satan:

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

The second goal that he has set is to corrupt everything that Yahweh creates for good. This is seen time and time again. We see it with the deception of Chava in the Garden and we again see it with the murder of Abel. I have no doubt that Yahweh meant for the Messianic line to come through Abel and when Satan had Cain slay Abel one day it must have seemed to Satan that he had triumphed. But Chava bore another son (Seth) who was a progenitor of Messiah Yeshua. We see it again with the Angel’s coming down and mingling with human seed in order to create the Nephilim, which was another attempt to pollute the human gene pool and prevent Messiah’s future advent. We see Yahweh’s response by letting things continue until He had raised up Noah to build an Ark that saved eight individuals to start humanity all over again. After the flood it was tried again, so much so that Israel had to eradicate whole towns when they were brought back to the land after their bondage in Egypt. Each and every time Yahweh fixed things or made things anew, Satan got into the mix and tried to corrupt again. Thankfully, Yahweh always comes out the winner at the end or each ordeal and at the end of all things too.

We see time and time again how Satan would try to kill off the Jewish people and how Yahweh would intervene by saving one special child, or a remnant of people that He hid away somewhere. Yahweh always works with remnants, preserving a few faithful who will fulfill His purposes. Satan always tries to wipe out quantity, but Yahweh always preserves quality.

Satan – The Counterfeiter:

We saw above how Yeshua Himself said that Satan is the father of lies and of liars. Of course we know that lies come in many packages, all of them bad, some being diabolical. Since the focus of this article is to prove Satan’s deception through signs and wonders, let’s open up the door that is marked “counterfeit.” Behind this door we see things that are made to look like the genuine article, but are just frauds and deception. These things are called counterfeits. Just about anything can be counterfeited, including, but not limited to artwork, documents, photographic images and such. Even the future man of perdition, known in Christian circles as the antichrist will most likely be a counterfeit of Mashiach Yeshua.

Since we live in a society that tends to worship Mammon (money) we can best relate to counterfeiting as being the production of either paper money or coin in order to trick merchants and consumers into believing that the bogus money that they are being handed is in fact real. Governments spend billions each year in the attempt to thwart counterfeiting schemes. If counterfeiting were allowed to run amok it would eventually debase the currency that it is counterfeiting.

The word “trick” is quite interesting. We tend to think of it as harmless; a childish thing, or a prank that we pull on someone to get a laugh or to bring fun at a party. Granted, that is a definition of that word, but it is only one meaning; the rest being of a more insidious nature. Let’s look at the word “trick”:

Main Entry: 1trick
Pronunciation: 'trik

Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English trikke, from Anglo-French *trik, from trikier to deceive, cheat, from Vulgar Latin *triccare, alteration of Latin tricari to behave evasively (untruthfully), shuffle, from tricae complications, trifles
1 a : a crafty procedure or practice meant to deceive or defraud b : a mischievous (wicked or hurtful) act :
PRANK c : an indiscreet or childish action d : a deceptive, dexterous (skillful / clever), or ingenious feat; especially : one designed to puzzle or amuse.

Sure makes one think twice about pulling any sort of trick on anyone ever again, huh? The words above, in italics are definitions of the words that aren’t commonly used. I’ve always been intrigued by the word “amuse.” It is an antonym of the word “muse,” which means to think. In essence, “amuse” means absence of thought. It means something that keeps a person entertained so that they don’t have to use their brain for deductive reasoning. That is a very dangerous place to be in. So, the whole premise of a counterfeit is to behave in a untruthful, wicked or hurtful manner, in order to deceive or defraud people through some deceptive or ingenious feat which works best when the counterfeiter can keep the victim  puzzled or can get their mind on other things that aren’t pertinent to the subject at hand.

The Apostle Paul wrote about something similar in the following scriptures:

And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:6-12

At first the scripture above sort of bothered me. It says that Yahweh is going to send a counterfeit upon those who are perishing. I however remembered something that someone once told me about counterfeit money and bank clerks. When a person starts to work in a bank they are put through a regimen where they handle real money all of the time. During this course they sort of become intimate with the real article. Now, because they know what real money feels like and all of its unique characteristics, they are able to spot a phony bill very easily.

But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 2 Thessalonians 2:13

You see, those who are perishing will do so because they have never become intimate with Yahweh. They have never taken time to accept Yahweh’s gift of salvation, nor have they taken time to fellowship with Yahweh nor have they read his Word in order to even get a clue. But those of us who believe Yahweh have an intimacy with Him through fellowship and communion in the Ruach Ha Kodesh. We have handled the genuine article and know what is real and what is counterfeit. It’s like Yahweh is going to send the delusion on the perishing only to prove to the believers that the perishing are indeed perishing and that the perishing have no hope because they’ve rejected the only hope that there is. Notice that he claims that they are perishing BEFORE he sends the delusion.

There might be some who think that Yahweh is some sort of heavy for sadist a delusion upon people. Well, let’s look at something. Since you’ve probably come upon this text by electronic means, you are probably familiar with the internet and e-mail. I don’t think that there’s one person reading this who can say that they have never received spam e-mail. When you get e-mail from an address that you know and trust you open it up without hesitation because you know that it is safe. Sometimes however you receive an e-mail that makes an outlandish claim; like you can win some money if you click on it’s attachment, or that they have the cure for something that ails you. Well, you know that nothing in this world is free, so you delete the mail, or if you open it, you don’t fall for the lie. You can judge good from bad, right from wrong, simply because you know the difference. Now, let’s look at someone who rejects right and wrong. Let’s say that they spend all of their free time surfing the net for porn. They are obsessed with unrighteousness and look for ways to profane Yahweh and His ways. If they see anything that shows flesh they click on the link; you know, given over to sin.

But before we go any farther with this story, we have to look at this person’s origins. They grew up in a wonderful home with loving parents. The parents took this person to religious services every Sunday and on Wednesday’s too. The cards of righteousness were stacked in his favor, but he one day had a brush with evil and decided that evil was more fun; much less restrictive than any religious life that he had ever experienced. So this person decides to live after the sensual nature and exalts the lust of the flesh and the eyes and the pride of life. Now, one day he’s on the computer and he gets an e-mail that tell him that someone is really interested in him. He is told to meet this person at a certain place and that his sensual nature would be rewarded for his obedience. So he meets this woman at the appointed place and they spend the night together. Later the next day she introduces him to New Age philosophy, things that tell him that there is no hell, no consequence for what his parents told him was sin; and that he could become god himself if he tried hard enough. He was perishing before he ever met this woman online; on the road to hell for sure. His sensual lusts allowed a great delusion to be perpetuated upon him and he gladly accepted it. His journey on the highway to destruction allowed him to exit onto a freeway of delusion that has many lanes for traffic and no speed limit. The woman who deceived him was merely an off ramp that led to worse things. It really wasn’t the woman’s fault, so to speak; she was just a vehicle, a messenger. The man could have gone a different route; he could have ignored the invitation; but his debased state just led him in deeper. Like an illicit drug user, he just wanted to attain higher highs, ignoring all of the consequences. So, when Yahweh sends the great delusion upon mankind, they will have a choice to believe the lie or to turn to the truth. Sadly, most will choose sin over repentance. Yahweh isn’t doing evil by sending a great delusion. The delusion will merely be a choice, and those who choose to believe that the delusion is true will seal their fate. The elect though, those who know Yahweh intimately and who choose to love and follow him, although tempted, will choose Yahweh over the lie.

Spiritual Counterfeits in The Great Delusion:

The Great Delusion has many facets to it. Just like a diamond has many faces to it, yet it is still one diamond, so will be the Delusion. We can’t take time to focus on all of the delusions because they are many, so we will focus on the counterfeits of the UFO realm.

Delusions don’t just happen over night. They are a process; a work that has to be introduced to its victims in an ever so skillful manner. A common deception that can be used to illustrate how the public can be duped is the denial that the Holocaust ever happened. For a generation after the gruesome discoveries of the Nazi death camps were discovered it was hard to come against the facts of the Holocaust. There were many Allied soldiers who were witnesses to the camps; having the images emblazoned upon their minds; the images of genocide forever on their psyche. Images that recorded the event with their eyes, the smell of death forever in their noses, the taste of rotting flesh, forced upon their tongues by merely being around it; the cries of the survivors which they heard with their ears. No, they would not stand for any lies concerning this horror. Neither would those who saw the newsreels of the horror; the short news items seen between movies at the theaters; no, they would not stand for the lie that says that it never happened.

But all the while there were still those who refused to believe what they saw on the screen. Either through denial, or a rabid hatred for Jews, they would not believe the horrors of Nazi Europe. And as these individuals had children, and then grandchildren, they instilled their perpetual hatred in the fertile ground of the hearts of their offspring. Then when the witnesses to the atrocities, and the victims of the same began to dwindle in numbers it allowed the hatred to fester. They say that it was all a fabricated lie; that the Zionists created the images only to fool the public and such. The truth is made to be a lie so that a lie can be seen as the truth. It has the markings of Satan all over it; reminding us of the first lie that he told to Chava; “thou shalt not surely die, because God knows that when you eat of the fruit, you will be like God, knowing good from evil.”

In other articles at the Delusion Resistance website we talk about the messages that are coming from the beings that tout themselves as being extraterrestrial. The purport to be coming to Earth to help mankind; to enable humans to make a spiritual evolutionary advance. They come with all sorts of New Age philosophies; all that are diametrically opposed to Biblical Scripture and Yahweh, who is scripture’s inspiration. We’ve talked about how these philosophies are counterfeit; taking bits and pieces from true scripture and building an old lie religion on falsehood. We’ve also talked about these beings, who they really are and where they really come from. We’ve talked about how they’ve been deceiving mankind for millennia and what their true purpose is. Now we will look at another delusion, another way that they try to pervert the truth, and how they try to divert the eyes of mankind from what Yahweh has wrought.

Satan’s Attempt at OneUpmanship:

We live in a very material world. We also live in a world that lacks any sort of faith. I define faith as it is cited in Hebrews, chapter 11, and as it is evidenced in the life of every true believer in Yahweh. We live in a world that demands proof of everything, thus negating anything that resembles faith. A heart that constantly demands proof of things is one that is fertile ground for Satan and his wiles.

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 2 Peter 3:3-4

In other words, these scoffers are saying; “we don’t believe that Yeshua ever existed, and we don’t believe that He is coming back. We see the trees, the mountains, the rivers and valleys; the oceans and the sky. We can touch these and it is evidence to us that they exist. But Yeshua is a fable that you have in order to make you feel better, he’s a crutch. Since we can’t touch Yahweh, he can’t exist and so we won’t believe in him.” You see; no faith. And how many people do you know who have said something similar? I’ve seen and heard many who have said such things.

Since our society is so shallow and perverse, and most demand to have tangible things to worship, they are easy to set up with lies. You see, since people are so indoctrinated to believe that only what they hold is real, then producing a new thing that they can touch will satisfy their need for fresh and innovative ideas. People also tend to get bored with things quite quickly. Those who manufacture products bank on that part of human nature. Automobile makers make money every year with new products or vastly improved old products. Computer and software makers bank on this part of human nature and that is why there is always a new and improved CPU chip, or a bigger monitor and the new sound card is all the rage. Software is constantly appended to add new bells and whistles to entice you into getting the yearly upgrade of their product. Divorce lawyers bank on the fact that husbands and wives get tired of their spouse and want to trade in for a new model. The list goes on and on.

Even societal trends need to be replaced from time to time, it would seem. When you’ve used up your trend after a while, just trade it in for another. Sadly, this is true with religious beliefs. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes a refreshing is needed, these times are called revivals. We have to remember that a revival is a renewal, not a replacement. However, in our plastic, throw away society, faith suffers causalities too. Thank Yeshua that our faith, the true Christian faith, is not a religion, but a relationship.

But as we mentioned above, those without faith, or those with a shallow faith (religion) tend to want proof of things. As we move closer and closer to the 7 years of tribulation, we have seen many strange things come to light and those things have been accepted. They will not be mentioned here because we all know what they are and we all lament that people are so desperate to accept something new and refreshing, that they will grab hold of the most inane or hideous things. The Bible talks about “signs and wonders” being shown during the time of Jacob’s Trouble. Some of these things will be sent by Yahweh in order to show wicked people that they have chosen unwisely and to punish them for their choice. Yeshua however said that false Christs and prophets would also show some amazing things:

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24

It is my contention, and the contention of many others, that the UFO phenomena, along with all of the bells and whistles (abductions, entity manifestations and others) are part of the “signs and wonders” that the enemy is showing those who will swallow the lie. The last part of that scripture says that the delusions will be so strong that even the elect (Christians strong in their relationship with Yahweh) will be tempted to believe them. I have polled believers in a variety of churches and asked them their opinion about two subjects; evolution, and life on other planets. Invariably, about half of those responding will tell me that they believe that Yahweh used evolution to create the earth because evolution speaks that to them. That same half will usually tell me that they believe that there is life on other planets, simply because the universe is too vast, and there are too many worlds for there not to be life. Seems that seeds of the delusion are alive and well, even in the Body of Messiah.

Yeshua then goes farther and says that anything that the delusionists say is not to be heeded:

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. Matthew 24:25-26

Where the delusions are concerned, one could paraphrase the words of Yeshua in a following manner:

Behold, if they tell you that they are here to aid mankind, do not believe it. If they say that they come here from distant planets, do not fall for it. No matter what they say, know that they are evil and resist them.

But now you are saying, hey Dave, you mentioned Satan’s oneupmanship tactics, what about that? Well, let’s take a little gander at what I’m talking about. The table below was published in the MUFON Journal, February of 2007. One day while in prayer, I heard Yahweh tell me that there was a correlation between UFO sightings or better yet, UFO Flaps, and two other phenomena. Through the work of Joe Jordan, of CE-4 Research Group I had become aware that there was some sort of correlation between increased UFO activity in certain areas, and Christian Revivals in those same areas. But Yahweh told me also to look at the dates as they correlate to prophetic events, or events that profoundly effected Israel. So, when I got the table below from the MUFON Journal, it was like getting a gift from Yahweh; the timing was too perfect to be a coincidence, if you know what I mean. What I felt impressed to look for in the table was any dramatic spikes in the sighting numbers during a year as opposed to the year that preceded it. What was revealed was shocking, but in a blessed sort of way. The years highlighted in yellow are spike years. These years saw higher numbers than the year preceding, and as a matter of fact, in the majority of these years these spikes were at least twice the amount (sometimes, many times more) then the preceding year. So, I did a little bit of studying and found what I will present below.

First, take a look at the table below:

It is my firm belief that the UFO phenomena doesn’t appear randomly. I believe that each sighting, each abduction or abduction attempt and each message given to those who channel the occupants of UFO’s are all calculated events. They are all performed in order to advance Satan’s agenda and to discredit Yahweh, or attempt to do so. The 1947 sighting by Kenneth Arnold in Washington State only happened because Mr. Arnold was flying there and the producers of the event knew that he would tell someone about it. I also think that the realm of evil also arranged for the news media of the day to run with the story. I think that the crash(s) outside of Roswell was a public relations campaign for the enemy of Yahweh. It wasn’t an accident, but a brilliantly performed stunt to bring the “lie” into the arena and to start a cult following that exploded onto the scene and has grown each year. People wanted proof of the existence of extraterrestrials and Satan delivered in a big way; the craft, the bodies and the whole shebang. The Betty and Barney Hill event was calculated; the enemy knowing that the Hills were ripe for the picking. Take a biracial couple, humiliate them by performing all sorts of lewd experiments on them and then let them go so that they can tell about their story. Their dilemma happened in the 1960’s right when the subject of race relations was reaching its zenith; the press couldn’t help but to snatch it up. In an attempt to draw believers of Yeshua into the mix, they performed the Andreasson Affair. Betty Andreasson (presented as a devout believer in Messiah Yeshua) was approached by entities and after some convincing she agreed to go with them; where upon she met the so called “being of light,” and she fell for the lie. They wanted to take her and she didn’t fight, but agreed to go. The events that have been mentioned are just a drop in a much larger bucket of calculated lies that have been perpetrated on humanity by insidious forces bent on malevolence toward mankind.

Knowing that these things happen on purpose, we have to then start wondering about the grand scheme of things. We have to ask ourselves a serious question, that being, what else do these entities do to grandstand for their cause and to attempt to draw people away from Yahweh. With that in mind I prayed for Yahweh to show me how to research. I knew, from Joe’s mention of things, that these entities like to show up at or around the time that great moves of Yahweh are occurring. We will show that fact just below. But what else could they be up to. We know that Satan works overtime as he tries to destroy Yeshua’s Church. History is rife with persecutions of those faithful to Yahweh. But if we think for a moment, there is one other group of people whom have suffered at the hands of the kingdom of evil; those being the Jews. Because the Jewish people have been persecuted since antiquity it would be hard to research and find out all of the dates of their dilemma and then correlate them with the dates of UFO reports. We can however look at recent history, for perhaps the last 110 years and see if there is some sort of event that coincides with increased UFO reports. The only thing that I could think of, aside from persecution of the Jews, would be prophecies that would pertain to the Last Days formation of the Jewish nation. When I researched such things I was blessed to see that there is indeed proof that UFO’s tend to manifest at or around the time that Yahweh is fulfilling prophecy, or even during certain events that lead up to the fulfillment of prophecy. We shall now examine these fields of study.

The Numbers Tell The Story:

Assuming that you’ve taken a look at the table of sightings per year, I can be pretty well assured that you noticed that there have been spikes in the number of UFO sightings that have been reported. The number of sightings for each year were probably higher than the reported number. The unreported cases probably remained that way because of the stigma attached to reporting such things in years past. In the earlier years, reporting such phenomena would probably get someone burned at the stake for practicing witchcraft and in our more recent era, up until the 1960’s, reporting such phenomena would have probably resulted in the witness being given accommodations at the local psychiatric hospital. But, beginning in the 1960’s things started to change. So many reports were coming in, and a lot of those reports came from credible witnesses (military personnel, doctors, pilots, etc.), so much so that it gave the run of the mill citizen the courage and wherewithal to speak up and report a sighting.

I had considered putting the two categories of sightings into two sections, but I think that they should be melded. After all, it is the same phenomena, put on by the same author, so they should be melded. Now, let’s look at the sightings, the years, and what was happening in Christiandom and the formation of Israel.

1897: 13 Reports – previous year had only 3 three reports.

Theodor (Binyamin Ze’ev) Herzl convenes the “First Zionist Union” Convention, in Switzerland; bringing together like minded Jews and Gentiles in a think-tank for the express purpose of planning for a “Jewish Homeland.” Later, such Zionists as Lords Balfour and Rothschild would play integral parts in the British legislation for a Mandate for a Jewish State in The Promised Land.

On the Christian front, the Pentecostal Movement (revival) is in full swing, having gained momentum in the latter years of the 1890’s. A new denomination springs out of this movement, known as the Church of God in Christ. Holiness movements grow in number with evidence of “The Gifts of The Spirit.”

1908: 9 Reports – previous year had one report.

Revival sweeps around the world. Revivals in America, also in Germany, Italy and Bulgaria. The Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist churches all experience revival. Height of the Azuza Street Revival that swept throughout the world and introduced Pentecostalism.

1916: 6 Reports – Only one report a year during the previous two reporting years.

Chaim Weizmann, a Jewish chemist develops a way to synthesize acetone, allowing the British to produce smokeless gunpowder more cost effectively and by using supplies on hand in England during that time. He’s credited with helping Britain win World War One. As a result, he convinced Lord Balfour to submit legislation in 1917, called The Balfour Declaration, which was the British declaration stating that the Jewish people deserved to have a homeland in The Holy Land.

In America, many revivals swept the land in response to a move of the Ruach Ha Kodesh and might have been also in response to a national anxiety, brought on by America’s inevitable entry into World War One. In western Asia at this time the Assyrian Genocide was in full gear, resulting in the mass murder of upwards of 750,000 of the Christian Assyrian Peoples by the Muslim Ottomans. In the period of 1915-1916 the Armenian Genocide occurred whereby 1.5 million Christian Armenians were slaughtered by the Muslim Ottomans. The Greek Genocide was in its third year. When it ended, in 1923 the total death toll had been 1.4 million people who died at the hands of the Ottoman Muslims. The forces of evil were very busy during this period, as evidenced by all of the genocide, and the UFO manifestation.

1920: 8 Reports – only one report for the prior reporting year.

Many revivals in Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian churches. On the other side of the coin, this was a year that saw the beginning of moral decay that is commonly called “the roaring twenties.”

1930: 3 Reports – a spike greater then 7 prior years.

Revivals start all over the world. People turn back to God in time of turmoil; the start of The Great Depression.

1942: 9 Reports – only two reports the year prior.

All over Europe the Nazi’s start to transfer the Jewish people from interment camps to the death camps where they will be slaughtered in what is called the Holocaust. Incidentally, this is the year that Allied and Axis pilots and air crews started to talk about something called “foo fighters.”

1944: 9 Reports – Three times the amount of the prior year.

Late in the year the Nazi’s stop sending Jewish people to the death camps and the gassing of the Jewish people ends as well.

1945: 17 Reports – almost double the amount of reports than the prior year.

The world learns about the Holocaust, the news turning the world’s sentiments toward the Jewish people and turning the tide toward a homeland for the first time in 2000 years for the Nation of Israel.

1947: 178 Reports – an over ten fold increase from the last peak.

In Flushing Meadows, New York, the United Nations votes for the implement of Resolution 181, the partition of Palestine into two states; one Jewish and the other Arab. This is the conception of the nation of Israel; the birth would come in May of the next year.

In 1947 a Bedouin shepherd boy was tending his flock near the dead sea. Out of boredom he threw some rocks. He threw a rock into a cave and heard a crashing sound. He investigated and found several earthen pots that held ancient documents. These documents came to be known as the “Dead Sea Scrolls,” and they have served as an undisputable proof that the Bible that we have today is an unadulterated version of original scripture. Another thing to consider is that the Dead Sea Scrolls contain the “Book of Enoch,” a book that shows the true identity of fallen angels, demons and how their actions closely resemble the conventional acts of so called “extraterrestrials.”

1948: 23 Reports – Note that this entry is added not because of a spike in number, but because of its timing.

Wade Jones of Christian UFO researcher states the following. In February of 1948 there was a sighting of a UFO on a local farm, near Circleville, Ohio. It made quite a sensation, and UFO activity has been pretty constant since this date. Interestingly enough, that very same month, the new Bible College opened and accepted students for instruction. Some might say coincidence, but I say calculated.

The nation of Israel is born, fulfilling prophecy.

1952: 249 Reports – The largest spike in sightings up to this date (1952).

The year 1952 was the final year of one of the biggest Aliyah’s (Jewish immigration to Israel) that there has ever been. Jewish people from all over Europe and all of the Arab lands left their homes and relocated in Israel. This was a fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

In 1952 the Al-Fatah terror organization (which would later become the PLO) started a period of terror that was really an undeclared war. They would enter Israel, attack and then run back into Jordan in supposed safety. The Israeli’s formed a crack paratroop group whose sole mission was to parachute into Jordan at night, destroy the terrorist camps and then come home. Since UFO phenomena has increased during the time of other wars launched against Israel, then this undeclared war must be included in our figures.

1965: 130 Reports – Numbers climb into the triple digits and stay there.

One of the greatest revivals starts, dubbed “the Jesus Movement,” its adherents known as Jesus People. It would last for 15 years and impact every nation on earth.

Vatican II ended in 1965. One of its main tenants was the focus on ecumenism, its focus not just on bringing Protestants into the fold, but also the recognition and acceptance of all other religions, except for “Born Again” Christianity. The fires of the assault against the Born Again Church start burning hot.

President Lyndon Johnson is reelected and promises to aggressively press forward with the “Great Society,” which is nothing more than social and economic slavery in servitude to the government. American government adopts socialism and selfish-determination as its foundation, replacing pursuit of Godliness and trust in Yahweh. The beginning of the end of America.

1967: 251 Reports – a 25% increase over the prior year’s reported sightings.

Israel is attacked by all of his surrounding neighbors. After six days, the Jewish people had secured most of what is present day Israel, along with the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights. For the first time in two thousand years, Jerusalem was in Jewish hands.

1973: 751 Reports – More than a three fold increase compared to the previous year.

On Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) Israel’s neighbors conducted a sneak attack on Israel. Although caught off guard, Israel did finally manage to route their enemies and again they had to be called off by the international community as they were preparing to totally destroy their enemy.

On the political scene here in the United States, the Supreme Court decided in favor of Roe, in the Roe vs. Wade court battle. The decision in effect legalized the abortion of unborn children. This was the beginning of government sanctioned and sponsored infanticide.

1975: 515 Reports – Another booming year for UFO sighting reports.

The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, was adopted on November 10, 1975. This resolution stated that Zionism was in effect racism and racial discrimination. So in effect, the world was saying that the call of Yahweh (as illustrated in prophetic scripture) for the Jewish people to return to Eretz Yisrael was a crime on humanity. In 1991 the UN would realize its error and reversed its previous resolution with a new one; resolution 4686.

1987-1993: Total of 2118 Reports in seven years.

The First Intifada started in 1987 and lasted into 1993. It was basically an undeclared grass-roots war by the Palestinians against the Israeli’s. As the unrest ended in 1993 the number of UFO sightings also declined.

2001-2004: Total of 1644 reports in four years.

The end of the year 2000 saw the beginning of the Second Intifada, or the second undeclared war in a decade, brought about by unreasonable tensions on the Palestinian side in regard to Ariel Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount. In the year 2002 the number of UFO reports spiked at 830. In the same year representatives from the European Union, the United Nations, The United States and Russia formed a group known as the “The Quartet,” which began to shape international policy toward resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  The Quartet issued a statement regarding a road map for peace on September 17, 2002.   President Bush’s administration’s draft plan to resolve the Israel – Palestinian conflict, including reform of the Palestinian Authority, statehood for Palestine and a negotiated settlement. The plan is based on the road map of the Quartet, issued September 17 of the same year. In essence, these leaders were drafting a resolution that would force Israel to give away more of the land that Yahweh bestowed to them. The stage is set for Ezekiel 38 and 39.

In 2001 terrorists flew commercial airliners into the World Trade Center in New York City and also the Pentagon in Washington DC. This action was the preemptor of World War Three, which has been on a slow fuse till this day. Later this year the United States, Great Britain and other nations attack Afghanistan. In March of 2003 the United States and Britain attack Iraq throwing the world closer to World War Three.

On November 11, 2004, Yasser Arafat, catalyst of much of the heartache in Israel, dies in Paris. After his death the attacks on Israel lessen considerably and the Palestinians experience a civil war as the death of Arafat creates a vacuum that certain entities all want to fill at the same time. At this time the number of reports of UFO’s diminishes and drops to double digit figures for the first time since 2000.

 

There are other instances that we should look at to further our contention. Take for instance the revival that has been going on in Mexico. People are coming to Messiah Yeshua in the thousands. This revival started in the 1990’s. At the same time there was a large flap of UFO sightings in that country. During the past ten or so years there has been an increased number of sightings in Brazil. Not surprisingly, according to Joe Jordan’s sister who along with her husband are missionaries in Brazil, there has been a tremendous move of Yahweh during this time in that country. As a matter of fact, just about all of Latin America has been experiencing an increase in souls turning to Messiah Yeshua, while at the same time experiencing an explosion of UFO activity.

Another thing that I find interesting in the timing of the sightings of UFO’s during prophetic times or times of revival is that the numbers also indicate that evidences of the Ruach Ha Kodesh’s ministry have also increased. Reading through the history of the church after the Apostolic Age really doesn’t yield much evidence that the gifts of the Ruach were manifest in any great way. But in the 1890’s came the idea of a homeland for the Jewish people, and at the same time the Pentecostal movement was birthed. If I might be so bold as to suggest that the physical Israel was conceived, and the spiritual Israel was revived at the same time? It is also interesting to note that, again if I can be so bold as to say, that both have gone through a holocaust in the 20th century; the Jewish people going through a physical holocaust and the Church entering into a spiritual holocaust, the beginnings of the “great falling away.” Another parallel that is interesting is the great calling out. In the 20th century Yahweh started separating the sheep from the goats in both realms. The messianic movement of Judaism grew tremendously and is a force that has gained notice, but not formal recognition by other Jews. In the Christian realm, Yahweh has drawn a line in the sand; calling out the righteous to His side; they being a remnant; without any formal recognition by mainstream religion or Catholicism. Here’s another parallel to ponder. Because of persecution, the Jewish people yearned for a homeland and Yahweh gave them one. The church in the industrialized world has enjoyed freedom for quite a while while our brethren in other lands have been persecuted. Now that our governments are turning more and more to false religions and humanism we are losing our freedoms and soon will be persecuted. During the last few years Yahweh has been giving us the impression that we must forsake allegiance to politics and patriotism in our physical realm and focus on and work for the Kingdom of Heaven, which is our true homeland.

Getting back to the point at hand, it is important to remember one important thing. We are at war, not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, rulers, against spiritual wickedness in high places; in essence, Satan and his minions. There is nothing strange about the UFO phenomena, it is just a weapon of battle, a ruse to fight against what Yahweh is doing. But what most believers in Yahweh don’t currently understand is that these manifestations of Satan’s minions are like a slingshot against compared to an Abrams battle tank. We’ve got the evidence; at the mere mention of the name of Yeshua these entities run for the hills, they are no match.

CAN ANGELS ATTAIN SALVATION?

By David Ben Yakov

© 2007 David Ben Yakov / The Delusion Resistance

 

A man once told me that after a lot of prayer he thought that Yahweh was telling him that Yahweh was going to allow him to be abducted by aliens so that he could witness to the fallen angels and the Nephilim, in order to bring them to repentance and salvation. I stood there for a long moment and was so shocked that I asked him to repeat what he had just said. He repeated it word for word, just like the previous time. I asked him if he was aware of the fact that angels could not receive salvation. He said that he wasn’t too sure that what I said was correct. He said that when Yeshua had died he descended to hell and preached to everyone, including the fallen angels. And to cap that part of the conversation off, he said that he was pretty convinced that when Yeshua had finished his preaching in hell, that some of the fallen angels had repented and had received forgiveness. He told me that there were some scriptures that seemed to indicate that what he was promoting was true, but could only produce Mark 16:15, which we will examine below. Then, he further blew  my mind when he said that he had run the notion past a pastor friend of his that he esteemed greatly, and that this pastor had confirmed that the helper was right on the mark.

So, let’s look at the Gospel of Mark’s verse that this gentleman says gives him license to have an alien abduction experience in order to preach to the fallen angels and the Nephilim:

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

Of course you know me. I have to do language studies when things like this come up. So, let’s look at the first word of interest in the scripture in Mark. That word is “world.” We have to establish where we are to travel to in order to preach.

Strongs “world”

Strongs Reference Greek 2889
kosmos {kos’-mos} 

1) an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, government

2) ornament, decoration, adornment, i.e. the arrangement of the stars,
‘the heavenly hosts’, as the ornament of the heavens. 1 Pet. 3:3

3) the world, the universe

4) the circle of the earth, the earth

5) the inhabitants of the earth, men, the human family

6) the ungodly multitude; the whole mass of men alienated from God, and therefore hostile to the cause of Christ

7) world affairs, the aggregate of things earthly

a) the whole circle of earthly goods, endowments riches, advantages, pleasures, etc, which although hollow and frail and fleeting, stir desire, seduce from God and are obstacles to the cause of Christ

8) any aggregate or general collection of particulars of any sort

a) the Gentiles as contrasted to the Jews (Rom. 11:12 etc)

b) of believers only, John 1:29; 3:16; 3:17; 6:33; 12:47 1 Cor. 4:9; 2 Cor. 5:19

So we can pretty well ascertain that the scripture is talking about the earth when it is talking about going out into all the world. One could possibly make an argument for the world meaning “the heavenly hosts,” or in more modern term, the stars but there are a few problems with that. If we were to use that argument, then it would exclude the earth, the main focus of Gospel preaching. An argument can be made for the universe being where the Gospel is supposed to be broadcast. This would be assuming that there are other tangible inhabitants in the universe. Both scripture and physical evidence exclude that idea. No matter how much people want to believe in space brothers, no physical proof exists and when the day finally comes where supposed proof does make itself known, it will be a delusion of the highest magnitude. And as we will see later on by our examination of the scriptures that surround the scripture in question, there is a context that we have to follow.

Strongs – “Preach”

Strongs Reference Greek 2784

kerusso {kay-roos’-so}

1) to be a herald, to officiate as a herald

a) to proclaim after the manner of a herald

b) always with the suggestion of formality, gravity and an authority which must be listened to and obeyed

2) to publish, proclaim openly: something which has been done

3) used of the public proclamation of the gospel and matters pertaining to it, made by John the Baptist, by Jesus, by the apostles and other Christian teachers

We can see that all definitions of this word pretty well mesh with each other. Herald is an interesting word. In old England he was a person who stood in the city square. He would ring a bell to draw people’s attention and when the people would all assemble he would read a proclamation usually dictated by someone in royalty. Another famous herald was Paul Revere from the revolutionary days in America. One midnight, when he had seen the signal from Falls Church he rode throughout the countryside and in the local towns crying, “The British are coming,” thus alerting the populace of the imminent danger at hand. What is suggested in the Greek meaning of the word is that the information that is given is given to people who didn’t know the information before. The problem for anyone who thinks that they can preach to fallen angels and the Nephilim, is that these beings are spiritual. Especially in the case of angels, they have the ability to know the mind of El Elyon and yet they still rebelled.

Anyone who takes this stuff seriously will sooner or later come across the book of Enoch. In the book we find the story of angels of God, B’nai Elohim who defied Yahweh and cohabited with human females, producing the Nephilim. The story shows that those angels knew that El Shaddai was angry with them for what they did. They entreated Enoch to petition El Shaddai to forgive them for their wrong doing. But the thing is that the writings of Enoch clearly showed that the angels rebelled against El Shaddai with the full knowledge that what they were doing was wrong. The angels were trying to pollute the human gene pool so that the promised Messiah would not be able to be born. They knew that Messiah would be Yahweh in human flesh and wanted to make sure that all flesh was not entirely human, which would have frustrated Yahweh’s efforts. The Bible says that “to who much is given, much is required.” Imagine how angels; a higher creation than humankind; will be held more accountable than humankind where Yahweh’s judgment is concerned. Imagine the audacity of any creation that knew Yahweh so intimately, yet who purposefully rebelled, actually asking for amnesty. Treason is punishable by death in human circles; how much more so in the heavenly realm!

Strongs – Gospel

Strongs Reference: Greek 2098

euaggelion {yoo-ang-ghel’-ee-on}

1) a reward for good tidings

2) good tidings

a) the glad tidings of the kingdom of God soon to be set up, and subsequently also of Jesus the Messiah, the founder of this kingdom. After the death of Christ, the term comprises also the preaching of (concerning) Jesus Christ as having suffered death on the cross to procure eternal salvation for the men in the kingdom of God, but as restored to life and exalted to the right hand of God in heaven, thence to return in majesty to consummate the kingdom of God

b) the glad tidings of salvation through Christ

c) the proclamation of the grace of God manifest and pledged in Christ

d) the gospel

e) as the messianic rank of Jesus was proved by his words, his deeds, and his death, the narrative of the sayings, deeds, and death of Jesus Christ came to be called the gospel or glad tidings

Simply put, the Gospel (or Good News) is the message that Yeshua was Yahweh, born in human form; that He suffered and died to pay for our transgressions against El Elyon, and that He rose again so that we might some day rise also to be with Him forever. But did He die for humans alone? Let’s look at the next word in the scripture in Mark 16:15.

Strongs – Creature

Strongs Reference: Greek 2937

ktisis {ktis’-is}

1) the act of founding, establishing, building etc

a) the act of creating, creation

b) creation i.e. thing created

1) of individual things, beings, a creature, a creation

a) anything created

b) after a rabbinical usage (by which a man converted from idolatry to Judaism was called)

c) the sum or aggregate of things created

c) institution, ordinance

So by looking at the definition from the Greek of the word “creature,” we see it possible that angels might be included in this scenario. But, we have to take one thing into consideration. We have to ask the question, “when were the angels created, and were they part of the linear creation?”

Job 38:4-7 describes the angels worshipping God as He was creating the world – “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone – while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?” (Job 38:4-7). So, although the Bible does not specifically say when God created the angels, it was sometime before the world was created. Whether this was a day before, or a thousand years before, we cannot be sure.
[ www.gotquestions.org/when-angels-created.html ]

Yet there is another problem presented in the Genesis chapter one account. Genesis chapter one verse one specifically states that the heaven and the earth were both created on the first day. If the angels were singing for joy at the creation of heaven (the physical universe) and earth then they existed before heaven (the universe), earth and even time and space ever existed. Therefore, they are not part of this creation. They are part of some separate creation and not to be included in anything pertaining to the creation of this linear existence. This is another reason why Yahweh is so hard when it comes to the judgment of the fallen angels; they should have definitely know better and should not have rebelled.

Context Is The Key:

Like everything else in scripture, we have to take things in context with the scriptures around them. It is no different with the scripture that we use in this study. Let’s look at the scriptures that follow the one in question:

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. Mark 16:16-20

Before we start, let’s take a look at what the word “angel” means. A simple word study shows that the word for “angel” in Hebrew mal’ak {mal-awk’} and the word for “angel” in Greek aggelos {ang’-el-os} both mean messenger. That is all they mean and there is no other meaning. Angels were never used to cast out demons. That has always been the appointment of any human being that is filled with the Ruach Ha Kodesh. As for their speaking in new tongues, why would they have to; they already have their own tongue as evidenced by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians:

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1

We continue with the scripture telling us that the beings that will be preached to will also take up serpents and drink deadly poison and it will not hurt them. Angels are spiritual beings and those things would not hurt them anyway. Angels are messengers and have never been used to heal people. Some might refer to the following scripture to prove my contention wrong:

For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. John 5:4

However, when we look at it carefully, we see that all the angel did was to trouble (stir up) the water. The healings that occurred were most probably the result of the faith of the person who made it to the pool first, not to the actions of the angel. So, in essence the people described as “he that believeth” in the scripture above can only describe human beings; not angels.

Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Romans 5:14-19

The scripture in Romans really spells out where sin originated and who salvation is all about. Notice that the passage says that it was through a MAN that sin came into the world. It also says that a MAN will be the one who made it possible for all MEN to be saved. There is no mention of angels or any other being, either here on earth or in the heavens. Adam’s rebellion brought sin into the world and Yeshua’s obedience to El Elyon made a way of escape for mankind.

For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 2:16-17

The scripture just above is the icing on the cake that is my argument against angels being to achieve salvation through the blood of Messiah Yeshua. Yeshua came in the nature of a human being. Why? Simply because human beings were the ones in need of salvation. Had Yahweh wanted to provide salvation for the angels, he would have come as an angel and died for angels. Had he wanted to offer salvation to the Nephilim, he would have come as a Nephilim and died a Nephilim. But no, Yeshua came as Yahweh in human flesh and died for human beings.

Opening Up Dangerous Doors:

What the man has done in his wish to experience alien abduction in order to preach to angels is no different to opening up oneself to any of a number of occult devices that the enemy can use. This person is so deluded that he thinks that he can preach the offer of salvation to beings that cannot be saved. These entities are in total rebellion to Yahweh; have been for millennia and will continue to be until they are cast into the Lake of Fire sometime in the future. They’re bad dudes and not to be messed with.

What he is doing is no different than going to a channeler and asking them to call up a demon in order to preach to the entity. He is opening himself to severe demonic oppression or even demonic possession, depending on whether or not he is born again and spirit filled, or not.

The Solution:

Yeshua is the answer to every question and the solution to every problem. This man and all others like him need our prayers. They’re a prime example of how those fighting delusions can become part of the delusion if they are not grounded in the truth, a physical fellowship with other believers and accountability to a responsible and Biblically based leadership. Since their pastor friend has sanctioned this action per the man’s own admission, he seems to be a shepherd that has some issues that he needs Yahweh to deal with. With that in mind, add the pastor to the prayer list too.

Because the strangeness of what they believe it would be easy for me to want to censure them; but alas I just can’t do that. Each of us has had a period(s) where we’ve wandered off the path and others were gracious to love us back into the fold or back onto the straight line. We should show the same mercy to those who are in the wrong in this matter. So, I ask with all earnest that we continually, as a body of believers, hold these kinds of individuals up to Yahweh and trust that HE will bring repentance and renewed life back to all of them. Thanks for caring enough to do so.

TIRED OF POLITICIANS?
LOOK INTO JESUS!

© 2000/2010 David Ben Yakov / Delusion Resistance

 

This particular page has been up for almost two years. In that time I have received a few hateful letters from who I believe are well meaning patriotic people. Evidently, they have taken what is written below as an insult. By writing the article it is not my intent to talk people out of voting or getting politically active. It is my intent however to warn people not to turn their political activities into a religion. It is also my intent to show people that God is in control of everything and that faith in Him is far more satisfying and has many more advantages than trusting the political systems that man has instituted here on Earth.

Before we start, I want the reader to know that I used to be a very political person. Because I am a practicing Christian, I naturally take a conservative view of life and politics. I tried to mix Christianity and politics, which cannot be blended through any process. You see, when the founding fathers formed this country, with the help of the Almighty, most of the populace of the land were Bible believing Christians. Therefore, laws were enacted and politicians were elected without much trouble. In contemporary times, America has splintered into many different factions and the majority of Americans don’t follow God, let alone know who He is. Because people love themselves more than God, it is nearly impossible to have proper laws enacted or Godly people elected to office because the majority of people vote for what is good for them, not necessarily what is good for the country.

So, why do I vote? Well, if a person ignores the state of the nation and refuses to vote, they are worse than the people trying to destroy it. I find solace in the knowledge that at least I am trying to do something to make things better. Also, it is important to keep whoever is elected in prayer because God can turn things around to suit His will. But I still refuse to let politics become a religion again. Now, on to the politics religion.

 

 John316

This page used to be a very political page. The reason why I have changed this page is because I really don’t see any hope in the Political System of The United States, or any other earthly political system. It is quite evident to me, especially after the Clinton Impeachment debacle, that the system is there only to protect those in office and the rich. The will of the American people is basically ignored and subverted by a very liberal press. Basically, I knew about the corrupt government and media base, but had foolishly hoped that justice might prevail if enough people said something about it. Well, a lot of people did speak out against our supposed leader and still nothing happened. I mean, we got to see a wonderful show in Congress and the Senate, but it was just that, a show. I apologize to anyone whom I had given possible hope to. I see now that any president will never be impeached, especially when he/she has sympathizers in office or those who should stand for truth who only care about their employment status.

You see, there are too many of us (yes, I include myself) who have made politics into a religion. There are many parallels to religion too. In politics you have a good and evil. In my case, the Republicans were good and the Democrats were evil. It took me a long time to realize that they are all evil and trying to achieve the same goal by taking different roads. In the political religion people use the polling place as a prayer booth, each hoping that their ideology will win. In the political religion people have many gods, some greater and some lesser; their election hopefuls.

The problem with the Politic Religion is that there are too many ups and downs. The good things that might be done by one of the factions can be reversed and decimated by the other side when they get elected. There never seems to be any closure and anxiety waits around the corner all of the time. For me this was too much to handle. Life has enough problems and anxieties to have to cope with the Politics Religion.

The common denominator in the Politic Religion is the Human Being. Of all of the creatures of God’s creation, man is the most innovative and crafty. Man has the ability to destroy and create, to corrupt and refine and to love and hate. Man was a special creation, given all of these abilities by it’s creator. Through His love, God gave man a free will. Man is able to choose between good and evil. He can wake up in the morning and say “although I want to do evil today, I choose to do good.” With all of the creativeness and innovativeness that man has it is still a very weak creation. The best person that you know; the most holy person that you can think of are totally capable of falling on their faces by way of temptation or lust. I am not just talking about sexual temptation or lust, but the lust for money and the lust for power. If the devil tempted Jesus do you think that mere people are immune?

When people get elected to office in the Politic Religion they enter a system most corrupt. Many enter the system being evil already and thrive in that evil. Others, enter with good intentions but soon those intentions fall by the wayside as they are compromised or seduced by lust for money and power. Basically, if the system doesn’t get you through your lust, they will set you up and offer to keep quiet if you play by the game. Then of course if that doesn’t work, they take the ultimate step and put you six feet under.

A wise man once said “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” So you see, any honest politician enters the arena with the cards stacked against him/her. The domino effect comes into full play after that. It goes from “what can I do for my constituents,” to “what can I do for myself,” to “this is a great place to be, how can I stay here.”

So, seeing that the Political Religion corrupts it’s victims, why do so many constituents flock to it. Basically, it is because you want the guy that is on your side to win so that you can have the quality of life that you like. There is nothing wrong with that as that is every human’s aspiration. The trouble is that you might get a little of that quality of life that you want to attain, but at a price. The price is higher taxes or perhaps being compromised in what you were promised. For instance, you drive a certain way to work every day. There is however a nasty pothole that you always seem to run over. You complain about the pothole and it gets fixed. But did you realize that the politicians tacked another penny on the gasoline tax for every dollar of gas that you buy? Then there is the sales tax that you have to pay when you take your car in for a front end alignment.

As another example we will look at the earthquake tax that we got stuck with here in California. Back in the 1980’s we had a couple of earthquakes that did a fair amount of damage. To pay for that damage we were given a increase in our sales tax. It was to pay for fixing the roads and such. Well, it is now 1999, and the roads are all fixed, but the tax remains. It was so easy to implement the tax, but it has been all but forgotten and every person in this state just pays it without question. The examples are endless of how our wonderful legislators take us to the cleaners, all on the premise of doing good. I guess that we are to blame though because no one stands up and says anything about it.

Some people believe in the stock market. To them, making money on the big board is security. They count on that medium for their future security and to attain the finer things in life. Well, so did the investors before 1929. It is interesting how that time parallels our time. The market took great leaps and bounds. Americans became prideful, saying, “look at our wealth and prosperity, nothing can stop it now.” I imagine that many of these people were the same people who leaped from buildings or shot themselves after October 29, 1929. There will be another stock market crash!! It is important to remember that everything that we have can be lost in a matter of minutes, including our lives.

One might ask, “who is a person to trust?” That is a very good question to ask. People are hard to trust because once you do start to trust them they let you down. You can’t trust the government and you sure as heck can’t trust those we put in office to run the machine. Honest people will admit that they can’t even trust themselves because after all, we are all hypocrites. You can’t trust the stock market, for obvious reasons. You can’t trust the news media because they are only out to make money and to bolster their allies in government. Is there anyone that you can totally trust? Is there anything that is rock solid?

There is only one person who is trustworthy. There is only one person who knows you better than you know yourself. There is only one person who hates dishonesty in government more than you do. His name is Jesus and He loves you. Before you were even born he knew what sort of person you would be. He humbled himself and stepped down from heaven to see what humans actually had to go through. He experienced aches and pains. He felt the longing for love and acceptance. He experienced what it feels like to be downtrodden and belittled. He experienced first hand what government can do to its people. And with that, God Himself experienced what we go through.

God made a way out for us. He gave us someone that we can trust with our lives. Someone to help us know that things will turn out fine. And God knew that we could never approach Him because we were really dirty and unacceptable. We are hypocrites and even the best of us are as dirty rags compared to His perfection and majesty. It is sort of like we all are greasy and dirty and God’s house has white walls and rugs. Were we ever to attain heaven looking like that we would soil heaven, and that just can’t be. So, God sent Jesus to die for us. When Jesus was on the cross, He took all of that dirt and grime and washed clean everyone who would accept that washing. Imagine what He went through. For eternity He had fellowship with God. On the cross He took all of our sins upon himself, so much so that God couldn’t look at him. For the first time in eternity He felt separation from God. He felt the separation that we all felt or would feel. Because He took all of that upon himself, he made it possible for everyone who would accept His sacrifice to be totally clean and acceptable to God.

Yes, Jesus really pulled our butts out of dire straits. God did not stop at there though. Sure, it is nice knowing that we are clean and acceptable to God in this life. What about after this life is over. Would we just sit six feet under and rot? God made extra provisions for that. He has promised that anyone would receive that washing would have the promise of eternal life, and a glorious resurrected body forever. Raising Jesus from the grave signed and sealed that promise. So, believing in Jesus and being washed whiter than snow also brings into the agreement the promise of living for eternity in perfect bliss and contentment.

So, those of you who were like I was, please consider what I have said. Your belief in the Political Religion will never satisfy you. Your Political Religion will only lead you on a roller coaster of discontent and disappointment. Consider that all societies have crumbled sooner or later and that though you might build a wonderful structure it will crumble and decay either by malice or corruption. Jesus however, is a rock that has withstood the worse storms and trials. He will never crumble and is rock solid. When this world finally ends, nothing will matter but Jesus. You can take that to the bank!

OCCULT HOLIDAYS AND SABBATS

from CuttingEdge Website

 

 


As we have repeatedly stated, the Satanist believes that numbers contain inherent power. Thus, they literally order their lives by occult numerology — such numerology also is a key component in astrology, another system of divining that Satanists observe very closely. The occult calendar is divided into four (4) segments of 13 weeks each. The number, “13” is considered divine by the occultist for a couple of reasons:

1. The Bible assigns ‘13‘ the meaning of “rebellion against constituted authority”, plus the depravity that caused Satan to rebel against God.

2. The occultist assigns ‘6‘ to represent the number of man, and the number ‘7‘ to represent the number of divine perfection. Thus, as a person climbs that “Jacob’s Ladder” toward self-perfection in the realm of the occult, the number ‘13‘ represents the state of divine perfection, self-achieved perfection, and Illumination (6+7 = 13).

Thus, the occult calendar is comprised of four periods of 13 weeks each. We list these periods for you, below. Then, after listing them, we shall come back to talk about each of them in detail.

1. Winter Solstice 13 weeks — Minor sabbath

a. December 21 — Yule
b. December 21-22 — Winter Solstice/Yule. One of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights
c. February 1 and 2 — Candlemas and Imbolg, a.k.a. Groundhog’s Day. One of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights
d. February 14 — Valentine’s Day

 

2. Spring Equinox 13 weeks — Minor sabbath but does require human sacrifice

a. March 21-22 — Goddess Ostara — Note: Easter is the first Sunday after the first new moon after Ostara. March 21 is one of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights
b. April 1 — All Fool’s Day, precisely 13 weeks since New Year’s Day!
c. April 19 – May 1 — Blood Sacrifice To The Beast. Fire sacrifice is required on April 19.
d. April 30 – May 1 — Beltaine Festival, also called Walpurgis Night. This is the highest day on the Druidic Witch’s Calendar. May 1 is the Illuminati’s second most sacred holiday. Human sacrifice is required

3. Summer Solstice13 weeks — When the sun reaches its northernmost point in its journey across the sky

a. June 21 – 22 — Summer Solstice
b. June 21 – Litha is one of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights
c. July 4, America’s Independence Day, is 13 days after Day of Litha and 66 days from April 30
d. July 19 — 13 days before Lughnasa
e. July 31 – August 1 — Lughnasa, Great Sabbat Festival. August — One of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights

4. Autumnal Equinox13 weeks — Minor Sabbath but does require human sacrifice

a. September 21 – Mabon — one of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights
b. September 21 -22 — Autumnal Equinox
c. October 31 — Samhain, also known as Halloween, or All Hallows Eve. This date is the Illuminati’s highest day of human sacrifice

Isn’t it interesting how the “profane” — you and me — are led like a flock of sheep to observe the important festival days of the Mysteries’ Religion? You may not understand that you are ordering your year after pagan holidays, but you are! The annual calendar for the entire Western world is ordered by these Satanic festival times and days.

Now that we have seen the entire occult calendar, let us go back to the significant holidays to see how the Western world has slipped into a worship of the same pagan holidays and are using many of the same pagan symbols that are so important to the pagan worshipper. The human sacrifice required during many of these occult dates needs to contain the following elements, each one of which is exaggerated to the highest possible degree:

1. Trauma, stress, and mental anguish, sheer terror
2. The final act in the drama should be destruction by a fire; preferably a conflagration.
3. People must die as human sacrifices, especially children, since Lord Satan looks upon a younger human sacrifice as his most desirable

 

 

SPECIFIC DATES WITHIN

THE OCCULT CALENDAR

 

 

1. Winter Solstice — 13 weeks

a. December 21- 22

Yule — When the sun begins its northward trek in the sky, and days began to grow longer again, pagans celebrated the Winter Solstice by burning the Yule log. Since the sun had reversed itself and was now rising in the sky, pagans believed this was a sign that the human sacrifices carried out in Samhain (Halloween) had been accepted by the gods.

We continue to sing: “Deck the halls with boughs of holly … troll the ancient Yuletide carol … See the blazing Yule before us. Fa la la la la la la la.” [“Pagan Traditions of the Holidays”, David Ingraham, p. 71]

The Roman Catholic Church later changed the day of celebration to December 25, calling it Christmas.

Consider the pagan roots of our popular symbols of Christmas:

(1) Christmas TreeThe sacred tree of the winter-god; Druids believed the spirit of their gods resided in the tree. Most ancient pagans knew the tree represented Nimrod reincarnated into Tammuz! Pagans also looked upon the tree as a phallic symbol.

(2) Star Pentalpha, the five-pointed star. The pentalpha is a powerful symbol of Satan, second only to the hexagram. The star is the sacred symbol of Nimrod, and has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity.

(3) Candles represent the sun-gods’ newly-born fire. Pagans the world over love and use candles in their rituals and ceremonies. Certain colors are also thought to represent specific powers. The extensive use of candles is usually a very good indication that the service is pagan, no matter what the outward trappings might be.

(4) Mistletoe is the sacred plant of the Druids, symbolizing pagan blessings of fertility; thus, kissing under the mistletoe is the first step in the reproductive cycle! Witches also use the white berries in potions.

(5) Wreaths are circular, and so they represent the female sexual organs. Wreaths are associated with fertility and the “circle of life”.

(6) Santa Claus Former Satanists have told me that “Santa” is an anagram for “Satan“. In the New Age, the god, “Sanat Kamura“, is most definitely an anagram for “Satan“. The mythical attributes and powers ascribed to Santa are eerily close to those possessed by Jesus Christ.


(7) Reindeer are horned animals representing the “horned-god” or the “stag-god” of pagan religion! Santa’s traditional number of reindeer in his team is eight (8); in Satanic gematria, eight is the number of “new beginnings”, or the cycle of reincarnation. The Illuminati views the number “eight” as a symbol of their New World Order.

(8) Elves are imp-like creatures who are Santa’s (Satan’s) little helpers. They are also demons.

(9) Green and Red are the traditional colors of the season, as they are the traditional pagan colors of winter. Green is Satan’s favorite color, so it is appropriate it should be one of the traditional colors for Christmas; red is the color of human blood, Satan’s highest form of sacrifice — for this reason, Communism adopted red as it main color!

(10) December 25 is known as the “nativity” of the sun. This date is the birthday of Tammuz, the son, the reincarnation of the sun god. Traditionally, December 21 is known as Yule. The Roman Catholic Church moved the celebration of Yule to December 25.

(11) December 25 is also known to the Romans as “Saturnalia“, a time of deliberate debauchery. Drinking through repeated toasting — known as ‘wassail’ — was a key to the debauchery of this celebration. Fornication was symbolized by the mistletoe, and the entire event was finished with a Great Feast, the Christmas Dinner.

(12) Even the name, “Christmas” is pagan!Christi” meant “Christ“, while “Mas” meant Mass. Since all pagan Masses are commemorating “death”, the name, “Christmas” literally means the “death of Christ“. A deeper meaning lies in the mention of “Christ” without specifying Jesus. Thus, Antichrist is in view here; the pagans celebrate “Christmas” as a celebration of their coming Antichrist, who will deal a death blow to the Jesus Christ of Christianity.

Early American Christian Pilgrims refused to celebrate this day.

b. February 1 and 2

 

— Candlemas and Imbolg, popularly called Groundhog’s Day. The popular “Punxsutawney Phil” groundhog comes out of his burrow to divine the next few weeks of weather. If he sees his shadow, we will have 6 more weeks of bad weather until Spring finally arrives; if he does not see his shadow, the next 7 weeks before Spring will be good weather. Notice this pagan tradition features both the number ‘6’ and ‘7’, which when added, equals ’13’.

What most people do not realize is that the pagan view of Groundhog’s Day (Imbolg) represents the Earth Mother. Consider these uncanny parallels between the Groundhog and the Earth Mother:

1. As the Earth goddess sleeps inside the earth during the winter season, so does the Groundhog

2. Both the Earth goddess and the Groundhog bridge the two time periods: Winter and Spring

3. Both the goddess and the Groundhog are “earth” creatures

4. Both the goddess and the Groundhog “awaken” in Springtime

5. Both the Earth goddess and the Groundhog complete the “cycle of reincarnation”

6. Annually, both the Earth goddess and the Groundhog represent the cycle of “rebirth” and “renewal”

The name, “Groundhog” was substituted for the Satanic name of the holiday, Imbolg, a night requiring human sacrifice.

c. February 14 —

Valentine’s Day — is a pagan festival that encourages love and physical lust. It is celebrated precisely 13 days after Imbolg, thus imprinting upon it the number ’13’, Satan’s number of extreme rebellion. While most people view this day as the day to honor your wife or your lover, this celebration is steeped in paganism

Consider the camouflaged occult gods in Valentine’s Day:

1. Cupid, the son of Venus, is really Tammuz, son of Semiramis

2. Venus, daughter of Jupiter, is really Semiramis herself. Jupiter is the head deity, a sun god — Nimrod, Semiramis’ husband, is considered a sun god in the Babylonian Mysteries.

Listen to a pagan author describe February, the month in which Valentine’s Day falls.

“The name of this month comes from the Roman goddess Februa and St. Febronia (from Febris, the fever of love). She is the patroness of the passion of love … Her orgiastic rites are celebrated on 14 February — still observed as St. Valentine’s Day — when, in Roman times, young men would draw billets naming their female partners … This is a time of clear vision into other worlds, expressed by festivals of purification. On 1 February is the celebration of the cross-quarter day, or fire festival (Imbolc) a purificatory festival. It is followed on the 2nd by its Christian counterpart, Candlemas, the purification of the Virgin Mary.”

[“The Pagan Book of Days“, Nigel Pennick]

Valentine’s Day is a day of “orgiastic rites” in which the pagans encouraged the flow of lustful passion.

 

2. Spring Equinox — 13 weeks

 

— Minor Sabbath but does require human sacrifice

a. March 21-22

— Goddess Ostara (Ishtar, also spelled, “Eostre”), for whom “Easter” is named — March 21 is one of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights

Easter is a shifting date using the common practice of Astrology; it is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first new moon after Ostara.

This date also has nothing to do with the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! Rather, this day in the pagan tradition celebrates the return of Semiramis into her reincarnated form of the Spring Goddess. The pagans even have an equivalent to our Good Friday! It is “Easter Friday”, and has historically been timed to be the third full moon from the start of the year. Since the marrying of pagan Easter to Jesus’ resurrection, Good Friday is permanently fixed on the Friday prior to Easter.

Easter is steeped in the Babylonian Mysteries, the single most evil idolatrous system ever invented by Satan! All throughout the prophetic Scriptures, we see God declaring His final judgment upon wicked Babylon! Yet, every year, Christian pastors intone “Easter” as though it were Christian. Many Independent Baptist preachers have begun referring to this day celebrating Jesus‘ resurrection as “Resurrection Sunday”, in order to separate the day from the pagan celebration.

The Babylonian goddess, Ishtar, is the one for whom Easter is named; [“Pagan Traditions of Holidays”, p. 9] in reality, she was Semiramis, wife of Nimrod, and the real founder of the Satanic Babylonian Mysteries. After Nimrod died, Semiramis created the legend that he was really her Divine Son born to her in a Virgin Birth. She is considered to be the co-founder of all occult religions, along with Nimrod.

Easter — the day of Ishtar — is celebrated widely among various cultures and religions on earth.

  1. Babylon – Ishtar (Easter) also called the Moon Goddess
2. Catholics — Virgin Mary (Queen of Heaven)
3. Chinese — Shingmoo
4. Druids — Virgo Paritura
5. Egypt — Isis
6. The Pagan Ephesians — Dianna
7. Etruscans — Nutria
8. Germans (Ancient) — Hertha
9. Greeks — Aphrodite/Ceres
10. India — Isi/Indrani
11. Ancient Jews — Ashtaroth (Queen of Heaven)
12. Krishna — Devaki
13. Rome — Venus/Fortuna
14. Scandinavians — Disa
15. Sumerians — Nana

 

[“America’s Occult Holidays“, Doc Marquis and Sam Pollard]

The Babylonians celebrated the day as the return of Ishtar (Easter), the goddess of Spring. This day celebrated the rebirth, or reincarnation, of Nature and the goddess of Nature. According to Babylonian legend, a huge egg fell from heaven, landing in the Euphrates River. The goddess, Ishtar (Easter) broke out of this egg. Later, the feature of an egg nesting was introduced, a nest where the egg could incubate until hatched. A “wicker” or reed basket was conceived in which to place the Ishtar egg.

The Easter Egg Hunt was conceived because, if anyone found her egg while she was being “reborn”, she would bestow a blessing upon that lucky person! Because this was a joyous Spring festival, eggs were colored with bright Spring colors. [Ibid.]

The Easter Bunny

“The Goddess’ totem, the Moon-hare, would lay eggs for good children to eat … Eostre’s hare was the shape that Celts imagined on the surface of the full moon …”

[“Pagan Traditions of Holidays”, p. 10.]

Do not bother to tell me that bunnies do not lay eggs, for I know that; we are dealing with a legend here, and an occult legend at that. These types of legends traditionally play loose and fast with facts.

Thus, “Easter” — Eostre, or Ishtar — was a goddess of fertility. Since the bunny is a creature that procreates quickly, it symbolized the sexual act; the egg symbolized “birth” and “renewal”. Together, the Easter Bunny and Easter Egg symbolizes the sex act and its offspring, Semiramis and Tammuz.

Thus, it is a very serious spiritual matter, indeed, when christian churches incorporate “Resurrection Eggs” as part of their Easter celebration. At the very least, these churches are confusing the minds of their precious young children, by blurring the dividing line between pagan symbols and their meanings and Christian meanings of Resurrection Day. Young children who participated in “Resurrection Eggs” in church will be conditioned later in their life to accept the fullness of the pagan tradition revolving around the same symbols.

At worst, a church participating in the pagan Easter tradition by promoting “Resurrection Eggs” and perhaps an Easter Egg Hunt, is guilty of combining Christianity with paganism, the very lethal cocktail the Lord Jesus will always reject! Remember our key verse:

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing”

If your church has “Resurrection Eggs”, that is a church you should consider leaving immediately; if the Senior Pastor is Liberal enough to use “Resurrection Eggs” in his Resurrection Day celebrations, he is probably Liberal in Doctrine and Theology, but may not be far enough along for you to see it yet.

Other Pagan Ingredients

Easter Offerings are derived from the tradition where the priests and priestesses would bring offerings to the pagan temples for Easter. They brought freshly-cut Spring flowers and candies to place on the altar of the idol they worshipped. They would also bake Hot Cross Buns, decorating them with crosses symbolizing the cross of Wotan, or some other pagan god; these crosses were not originally the cross of Jesus Christ. This is another instance where Satan counterfeited a pagan tradition that could later be passed off as “Christian” in a church seriously compromised by Syncretization.

In fact, the first instance of Hot Cross Buns can be traced back to about 1,500 BC, to Cecrops, the Founder of Athens [Marquis, p. 18] Later pagans used not just the shape of a Pentalpha star, but also the Hot Cross Bun.

Another popular Easter offering were freshly made or purchased clothes! The priests would wear their best clothes, while the Vestal Virgins would wear newly-made white dresses. They would also wear headgear, like bonnets, while many would adorn themselves in garlands of Spring flowers. They would carry wicker baskets filled with foods and candies to offer to the pagan gods and goddesses.

Easter Sunrise Services were originated by the priest serving the Babylonian Ishtar to symbolically hasten the reincarnation of Ishtar/Easter. Once again, we see how Satan knew that Jesus’ rising from the grave would be discovered in the early sunrise hours, and that the Christian Church would want to hold Sunrise Services to celebrate. Satan and his demons know and believe God’s Word and its prophecies literally, and they are allowed a certain amount of foreknowledge. Just as Satan counterfeited the Divine birth of a male child to a Virgin Mother fully 1,000 years before Jesus was actually born, so he counterfeited this Sunrise Service.

Lent is purely pagan, and yet has been accepted by the Roman Catholic Church and apostate christian churches as “christian”. If the church you are attending celebrates Lent, you need to inform the Senior Pastor of the pagan roots of this tradition; if he will not listen you should leave that church, for if they will accept Lent as “Christian”, you can bet they are very Liberal in critical Biblical areas as well.

Lent is a commemoration of Tammuz’ death; the legend of his death says that he was killed by a wild boar when he was 40 years old. Therefore, Lent celebrates 1 day for each year of Tammuz’ life. [Marquis, “America’s Occult Holidays”] Participants are to express their sorrow over Tammuz’ untimely death by weeping, fasting, and self-chastisement.

Lent was commemorated for exactly 40 days prior to the celebration of Ishtar/Esotre and other goddesses by the following cultures: Babylonians, Roman Catholics, Koordistan, Mexicans, Ancient Israel, and today, Liberal, apostate Protestant churches.

We can see God’s anger over this commemoration of Lent in Ezekiel 8:14-18; God’s judgment for this commemoration is described in Ezekiel 9, a chapter we suggest you read carefully, for God has stated that He will similarly punish any nation who does not “hear and obey” His commands (Jeremiah 12:17).

b. April 1

— All Fool’s Day, precisely 13 weeks since New Year’s Day!

c. April 19 – May 1

— Blood Sacrifice To The Beast, a most critical 13-day period. Fire sacrifice is required on April 19.

April 19 is the first day of the 13-day Satanic ritual day relating to fire — the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the Sun God), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (Satan/Devil). This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some very important historic events occur on this day.

Remember, the Illuminati considers war to be a most propitious way to sacrifice, for it kills both children and adults.

Some of the very important historic dates that were staged according to this blood sacrifice day are:

(1). April 19, 1775 — Battle of Lexington & Concord, which made the Masonic-led Revolutionary War inevitable

(2). April 19, 1943 — After trapping the last Jewish Resistance Fighters in a storm drain in Warsaw, and holding them for several days, Nazi Storm Troopers began to pour fire into each end of the storm drain, using flame-throwers. They continued pouring the fire into the drain until all fighters were dead. Blood sacrifice brought about by a fiery conflagration.

(3) April 19, 1993 — 50 years later, to the day, government troops, tanks, and other military equipment stormed the compound of David Koresh and his followers at Waco, Texas. Certainly, this operation fulfilled the basic requirements for a human sacrifice: trauma, fire, and young sacrificial victims.

(4)
April 19, 1995 — Oklahoma City bombing — Once again, many young children were killed this day

April 19 of any year in the 20th Century is a day of fearful contemplation, for it seems that, as we head into the final stretch of time, Satan is becoming more and more bold, and is using April 19 more often.

d. April 30 – May 1

— Beltaine Festival, also called “Walpurgis Night“. This is the highest day on the Druidic Witch’s Calendar, while May 1 is the Illuminati’s second most sacred holiday. Human sacrifice is required. Since the celebration officially began the night before Beltaine, the tradition has developed among occultists to celebrate Beltaine as a 2-day ceremony. This tradition was strong enough that Adolf Hitler decided to kill himself on April 30 at 3:30pm, thus creating a “333” and placing his suicide sacrifice within the Beltaine time frame.

Great bonfires are lit on the Eve of Beltaine, April 30, in order to welcome the Earth Goddess. Participants hope to gain favor with this goddess so she will bless their families with procreative fertility. We find it interesting that the Royal House of Windsor lights a Beltaine “Balefire” every year [“America’s Occult Holidays”, Doc Marquis, p. 30]

The “Maypole” originated from the celebration of Beltaine. Since fertility is being asked of the Earth Goddess, the Maypole is the phallic symbol and the circular dance around the pole forms the circle that is symbolic of the female sex organ. Four six-foot alternating red and white ribbons were connected to the pole; the men would dance counterclockwise, while the ladies danced clockwise. The union of the intertwining red and white ribbons symbolized the act of copulation — remember, this is a “fertility” celebration day!

To demonstrate their occult, Illuminist ties, Communists have always celebrated “May Day”. If you have not been taught how the Illuminati created Communism, and for which purpose, you need to hear our Seminar 2, “America Determines The Flow of History”.

a. September 21 –

Mabon — one of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Nights

b. September 21 -22 — Autumnal Equinox —

From this date through Halloween, occultists believe the veil separating the earthly dimension from the demonic realm gets progressively thinner, with the thinnest night being October 31; this thinning of the separating veil makes it easier for the demonic realm to enter the earthly dimension. Thus, on Halloween, evil spirits, ghosts, witches, hobgoblins, black cats, fairies, and demons of all sorts were believed to be running amok across the land. They had to be back in their spiritual dimension before midnight, Halloween, for the separating veil would then get thicker.

Once again, I reiterate, this is occult belief, not mine! October is a most propitious month to the Illuminati.

c. October 31 — Samhain,

also known as Halloween, or All Hallows Eve as designated by the Catholic Church. This date is the Illuminati’s highest day of human sacrifice

Halloween has been changed over the past 30 years in two important ways. First, children have been encouraged to participate by donning such inoffensive costumes as Barbie, Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman. Secondly, adult costuming and parties have reached a tremendous apex and has become a most macabre day of celebration.

Historically, Halloween is the deadliest holiday ever celebrated in human history. This Satanic night is dedicated to the Celtic Lord of the Dead, also symbolized by the Horned-god and the Stag-god. The Druids celebrated Samhain as a 3-day fire festival, building huge bonfires, thought to ward off demons that roamed around; additionally, the fires provided the means by which the required human sacrifice would be presented to the sun god. In enormous wicker baskets, the priests caged both human and animal sacrifices, which they then lowered into the flames. The priests would carefully watch the manner in which the victim died in order to predict whether the future held good or evil. [“Pagan Traditions of the Holidays”, p. 71]

Origin of Popular Halloween Traditions

Sweets and Trick or Treat

This pagan practice is over 2,000 years old. For the sake of their safety and well-being, people put outside their home sweets, the best mutton legs, vegetables, eggs, and poultry, honey and even wine, so the wandering evil spirits would consume them on their way back to the netherworld. Failure to “treat” these evil spirits might result in a curse being put on the home! The people literally believed that, when these spirits came to your door, they would trick you if you did not treat them.

“The American version of Halloween came from Ireland … The potato famine in 1840 brought thousands of immigrants from the Emerald Isle. With them came goblins, jack-0-lanterns, bonfires, apples, nuts, and pranks … The Irish are also responsible for bringing trick or treating to great popularity in America. In Ireland on October 31, peasants went from house to house to receive offerings to their Druid god, Muck Olla. This procession stopped at each house to tell the farmer his prosperity was due to the benevolence of Muck Olla … or else misfortune might befall the farmer and his crops. Few farmers risked any such displeasure of the pagan deity, so the procession returned home with eggs, butter, potatoes, and in some cases, coins … To the Irish farmers this was no joke; they greatly feared the Celtic god might destroy their homes and barns … Trick or treat is part of this pagan heritage.”

[“Pagan Traditions of the Holidays”. p. 78-79].

Horrifying Costumes

People would also take burning wisps from the bonfire and wave them around to frighten the many evil spirits roaming the earth; in case the burning wisp alone would not work, revelers clothed themselves in the most hideous and terrifying costumes. These people believed that, if you dressed in a terrifying costume and went trooping around with the spirits all night, they would think you were one of them and would leave you alone. [“Halloween and Satanism”, Phil Philips, p. 26-27]

Huge Bonfires

Satan’s obsession with fire has produced human obsession with building huge bonfires. As we stated earlier, these bonfires were practical, in that they provided the means by which the priests sacrificed the human and animal sacrifices so crucial to Halloween. When the last fires died out, people would race each other down the hills shouting, “The Devil gets the last one down”. [Philips, p. 27-28]

Divinations

Samhain (Halloween) was also the time to engage the Devil’s assistance in divining the future. Questions concerning marriage, luck, health, and the time of one’s death were most popular subjects of divination. In Scotland, young people assembled for games and pulled shoots out of the ground to ascertain which of them would marry during the coming year, and in what order the marriages should occur.

Snap Apple Night

Apples have long been a token of love and fertility. At Halloween parties, people bobbed for apples in tubs of water. If a boy came up with an apple between his teeth, he was assured of the love of his girl. The Snap Apple game was one in which the boys delighted. Each boy, in his turn, would spring up to attempt to bite an apple that was being twirled on the end of a stick; the first boy to succeed would be the first to marry.

Apple seeds were also used to tell fortunes. Peeling an apple in one long piece was supposed to tell a young girl about her future. The girl would swing the apple peal three times around her head, then throw it over her left shoulder. If the peeling fell unbroken, the girl would examine the shape into which it fell to see if she could ascertain the initials of her future husband!

Witch’s Familiar Spirits

Owls, bats, cats and toads are an essential part of Halloween, and for a very good reason: they are known as “the witch’s familiars”. A divining familiar was the species of animal whose shape Satan would assume to aid the witch in divining the future. A witch would closely watch the animal’s movements — whether slow or fast — and she would see the direction in which the animal moved and the kinds of sounds it made, in order to foretell the length of life and/or an impending illness.

Other “familiar spirit” shapes include hens, geese, small dogs, rats, butterflies, wasps crickets, and snails. Witches considered these creatures to be demon-possessed and controlled. If you look closely at most Halloween decorations, you will see these animals, but now you know they represent demon possessed creatures! [“Pagan Traditions of Holidays”, p. 75-76]

Jack-O-Lantern and Trick-or-Treat

Various names for Jack-O-Lantern were ‘Lantern Men’, ‘Hob-O-Langer’, and “Will-O-The-Wisp”. The ‘Lantern Men’ got their name from pale eerie lights that appeared over bogs and marshes in England. These ghostly lights, which bobbed along like a lantern in someone’s hand, were called ‘Corpse Candles’. Candles were said to be signals from the souls of men lost at sea. [“Halloween and Satanism”, Philips, p. 33-34]

Celts often hollowed out a turnip and carved a grotesque face on it to fool demons. They carried such lanterns to light their way in the dark and to ward off evil spirits … While the turnip continues to be popular in Europe today, the pumpkin has replaced it in America. ‘Jack’ is a nickname for ‘John’, which is a common slang word meaning ‘man’. Jack-O-Lanterns literally means ‘man with a lantern’. [Pagan Traditions of the Holidays”, p. 79-80]

Druid Trick-or-Treat

The Druids originated the practice of hollowing out the Jack-O-Lanterns and filling them with human fat. Whenever a raiding party came to a home to demand of the husband that someone inside be surrendered as a human sacrifice, they would light a Jack-O-Lantern filled with human fat; if the husband relented and provided one of his loved ones as a sacrifice, the Druid party would leave Jack-O-Lantern on the porch. This lantern would be tell the other raiding parties and the demonic host that this party had surrendered a human for sacrifice and that the remaining people inside were to be left alone. Guaranteeing that no one else in the house would be killed that night was the “Treat”.

If the husband refused to surrender one of his loved ones, a “Trick” would be placed upon the house. The members of the raiding party would draw a large hexagram using human blood on the front door; they got the blood for the hexagram from a dead body they dragged around with them using a cabletow. The demonic host would be attracted to this hexagram and would invade the house, causing one or more of the inhabitants to either go insane or die from fright. [“America’s Occult Holidays”, p. 20]

This is the true origin of “Trick-or-Treat” and the Jack-O-Lantern. Do you really want to take your kids “Trick-or-Treating”?

Forbidden Practices Specially Associated With Halloween

God lists Satanic practices that He absolutely forbids, on the pain of death! Every one of them is uniquely associated with Halloween!

1. Enchantment Act of influencing by charms and incantation using the practice of magical arts.


2. Witchcraft Dealing with demonic spirits, using their prescribed methods, commonly called rituals and the “magick arts”. The Bible forbids it, as in Galatians 5:19-20. Today, thanks to “Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, witchcraft is skyrocketing in popularity. TV shows that depict witches are “Bewitched” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”, to just mention a couple. Go to a video store sometime and walk down the “Horror” aisle, where you will see the popularity of Witchcraft in America today.

3. Sorcery Use of power gained from the prescribed rituals demanded by the demonic host. Once the witch or wizard performs the particular ritual correctly, the demonic host is required to provide the power to accomplish that action desired by the witch.

4. Divination Fortune telling and seeing into the future. God wants us to trust in Him and His power, and not worry about tomorrow. Satan, on the other hand, loves to get people consumed by the idea that they can know what lies ahead of them.


5. Wizardry The art or practices of a wizard, sorcery. A wizard or witch is one skilled in the magick arts, a sorcerer.


6. Necromancy Communication with the dead. Specifically, conjuring up the spirits of the dead for purposes of magically revealing the future or influencing the course of events.


7. Charm The practice of putting a spell on someone in order to change or control their mind and/or behavior. Wizards love to get their enemies “one-on-one” because they can “charm” them through the use of ritual done before the meeting, and by the demonic host residing within him. Adolf Hitler followed this practice closely as he dealt with the leaders of Europe, Britain, and Russia. British Prime Minister Chamberlain was totally charmed by Hitler as he sought to appease the German dictator in Munich in 1938; Chamberlain was so totally “charmed” by Hitler, he enthusiastically proclaimed after returning from Munich that he had achieved “peace in our time”.

When dealing with a powerful member of the Illuminati, do not attempt to meet with him, nor place any confidence in the testimony of people who have met with him. A “charm” ritual is easily performed and results in the leader exuding confidence, character, and sincerity they most assuredly do not possess.


8. Stargazing or Astrology Divination of the supposed influence of the stars and other heavenly bodies upon human lives and the affairs of nations. Occultists literally order their lives according to Astrology and numerics.


9. Soothsaying foretelling events and prophesying through a spirit other than the Holy Spirit.


10. Prognostication To foretell from signs and symptoms, also prophesying without the Holy Spirit.


11. Magic Tapping into the power of the demonic realm through the use of prescribed ritual so that the action carried out is accomplished through demonic power.

 

All these activities are uniquely associated with the activities and traditions of Halloween! Christians have no business participating in Halloween. To do so is to act against a great number of Scriptures in which God uses the strongest possible language to forbid it. In fact, in most instances, God decreed that people practicing these activities be put to death!

Yet, we see many churches having Halloween parties in which many of these pagan practices are followed! The Apostle Paul gave us strong warning that should stop us dead in our tracks. Listen:

“Let no one delude and deceive you with empty excuses and groundless arguments for these sins, for through these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of rebellion and disobedience.” Ephesians 5:6

Stop listening to people giving you “empty excuses and groundless arguments for these sins”, for if you go ahead and participate in this most evil holiday, God shall surely not look away.

One final note on Halloween: if you have been paying attention, you will know that these practices form the heart and soul of the Harry Potter novels and movies. Harry Potter is a wizard, and he comes from a family of witches and wizards [Generational Witchcraft]. His entire existence within these novels revolves around the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, where Harry and his friends learn all of these 11 forbidden practices.

THE X-MAS FILES

By David Bar Yakov

© 2006/2013 David Ben Yakov / The Delusion Resistance

 

My Purpose:

I’ve complied this paper after years of searching out the truth and after years of having that nagging feeling that the celebration of Christmas just isn’t right in it’s present form. To start off, let me say that I am not a Jehovah’s Witness, nor was I ever one nor will I ever be. I became a Born Again Messianic Believer, back in 1979 and I guess that if I were to ascribe to a denomination, it would be Messianic/Pentecostal in nature. If I were a betting man I would place good money on the fact that I will probably anger some people with what I have written, but seeing that I am answerable only to God, that possibility of anger really doesn’t concern me. If what is written below does anger you perhaps you should examine your relationship with Yeshua and our wonderful Father. Yeshua was never out to win a popularity contest and neither am I. And finally, for those who get mad because I use the phrase “x-mas” in the title please consider all of those little fish stickers on all of those Christian’s cars that read IXOYE. The “X” in that sentence signifies the Greek for Christos, translated into English meaning Christ.

Theoretical Christmas:

Lets start our by asking ourselves the question, “what is Christmas?” Well, supposedly it is a time when “Christians” celebrate the birth of our Savior, Yeshua Ha Mashiach. For most, it is a festive time, when His birth is remembered and honored. In the days of old, it was a time to refrain form the worries of life, and from labor, in order to pay homage to a little baby that came into the world some two thousand years ago, “supposedly” on December 25th in whatever year He was born.

To most of the Christian world, celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior is a wonderful idea and one of honor, and it would be if it were done in the spirit of doing things in a scriptural manner. After all, they are celebrating the Lord of Scripture, aren’t they? Questions arise like, “when was Yeshua actually born?” We know it could not have been during the Winter because Shepherds don’t tend their flocks in the fields during that time. This leaves us with either Spring or Autumn.

Christian’s give gifts at Christmas and claim that they do so to celebrate God’s gift to us. But what about the practicality of what is given. Yeshua received myrrh, frankincense and gold. If you look into the meaning of those gifts you see that frankincense was given because it is burned by priests in the worship of God. The Wise Men (and scripture says nothing about there being three) knew that Yeshua was God come in the flesh. Gold was given because that is what kings gave to other kings when they brought tribute. They knew Yeshua was the King of Kings. Frankincense was offered to Yahweh by a priest. Yeshua is a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. Myrrh was brought because that is a spice that is used to prepare the dead for burial. They knew that Yeshua was going to be a sacrifice for the people and that He would die. All of these were practical gifts. Their gifts were their proclamation of worship to Yeshua. It really puts to shame the impractical and sometimes unholy gifts that Christians give to each other at Christmastime. Today things are given not for what the person needs, but what they want. In our present time, the times are usually few where what a person needs is what a person gets.

Method of Corruption:

The world and its god, the prince of darkness have gone out of their way and spent many years and hatched many schemes to water down Faith in Yeshua. They’ve learned a long time ago that they can’t just come out and ban Christian celebrations and Holy Days, (while Christianity was strong and dominant) because that always leads to a rebirth in religion. When you take something away from people they always hunger for it more than they did before they lost it. Just look at the Prohibition Act back in the early part of the twentieth century. When alcoholic beverages were outlawed everyone wanted them. Even people who normally didn’t drink began to imbibe because going to speakeasies was the popular thing to do. The outlawing of Marijuana is another example. When I was a teenager we smoked pot to be part of the crowd, to be cool and to thumb our noses at those who dared to tell us that we could not do something.

In that sphere of influence, there is a practice that the makers and sellers of those substances did and sometimes still do? For alcohol the practice that I will refer to is called watering down. With marijuana and other illicit drugs it is called cutting. With alcohol, they take out some of the liquor and replace it with water. At first it is a little water so that the people can’t recognize the difference. Then as the people get used to the taste they water it down a little more and so on and so forth. With the marijuana, they increase the seed content or add spices like parsley that look the same and such. Hence we had the  phrase “bum weed.” The end result being that the substance looks the same and sort of tastes the same but is lacking in quality and purity.

Those who have striven to destroy Faith in Yeshua throughout the ages have done the same thing. In the case of Christmas, they didn’t know exactly when Mashiach was born, so they decided to place it during the same time period when the pagans were celebrating the Winter Solstice. Their thought, bring the Christian religion to the pagans and sort of water down the pagan religion but not totally, and at the same time to intermingle pagan tradition with the birth of Christ. This was the first ecumenical move, proving that ecumenism is not new, but a millennia old perversion. The Vatican is guilty of this practice at almost every place that they have introduced Roman Catholicism to pagans. Not only did they allow all of the icons and practices of pagans to infiltrate the Christian faith, but have also let all cultures corrupt the true faith in Yeshua Ha Mashiach. In Mexico for instance, the church is a participant in the Dia De Muerte (Day of The Dead) celebration which is in direct violation of everything scriptural. They have embraced Mariology, which is the worship of Miriam, the mother of Yeshua. They elevate her to such a high level that many now claim that she is a co-redeemer with Yeshua Himself. Mariology is only another name for goddess worship that most pagan societies have practiced from time immemorial.

When The Reformation came, many things that were offensive to real believers were abolished, but the Reformation was not a complete reformation. The roots of deception were entangled with the reformed faith and the celebration of Christmas came along for the ride. Perhaps the leaders of the Reformation didn’t want to change things so much that they would lose believers back to Catholicism, or perhaps they just didn’t make the correlation between paganism and Christmas, so the practices remain, even to this day.

Many find the this festive season as a time of financial dread. Those who work for a living and have to make every dollar count find the season difficult. When reminded that Christmas is approaching, many adults get a look of horror, wondering where they’re going to get the money for all the gifts that they feel they need to buy. Most go into debt for the celebration and it’s gifts. Does anyone with a right mind think that the Father or Yeshua really appreciate what this one day has become. It must really grieve them to see so many miserable not only because of the debt, but because they are celebrating something that they know really nothing about, many celebrating it wrongfully, out of compulsion.

 

THE INVESTIGATION:

So now the time has come to investigate the pagan practices and where they have originated from. I think that after you read about the pagan origins of many Christmas practices you will wonder how you’ve allowed yourself to be sucked into this mire of deception. Let’s move on and look at a few things.

Basically, I have given a lot of thought and prayed a lot about this subject, and have discovered some ways that the enemy has corrupted a tradition that he started in the first place.

  • The Origins of Christmas – Pre-Christian Paganism
  • Worldly icons and the Holiday
  • Commercialization of the Holiday
  • Removal of Christ from Christmas.

Origins: Pre-Christian Celebrating:

The truth is that all of the customs of Christmas pre-date the birth of Yeshua Ha Mashiach, and a study of this would reveal that Christmas in our day, and from time immemorial is a collection of traditions and practices taken from many cultures and nations.

The date of December 25th comes from Rome and was a celebration of the Italic god, Saturn, and the rebirth of the sun god. It was noted by the pre-Christian Romans and other pagans, that daylight began to increase after December 22nd, when they assumed that the sun god died. These ancients believed that the sun god rose from the dead three days later as the new-born and venerable sun. Thus, they figured that to be the reason for increasing daylight. This was a cause for much wild excitement and celebration. Gift giving and merriment filled the temples of ancient Rome, as sacred priests of Saturn, called dendrophori, carried wreaths of evergreen boughs in procession.

Many similar celebrations were held on or near the Winter solstice by those in other lands, such as the Nords in the Scandinavian nations, the pagan Germanic tribes and the Druids in England and Ireland. As you will see below, These tribal customs along with the Roman customs are responsible for most of the pagan celebratory themes of modern Christmas. We’ll look at those themes below.

 

WORLDLY ICONS:

Some of you are probably wondering what I am referring to when I say “worldly icons” have entered a Holy Day. In essence, it is anything that is used to celebrate the holiday that really doesn’t have anything to do with celebrating the birth of a baby in a manger in Bethlehem two thousand years ago. These are listed below:

 

  • Mistletoe And Holly
  • Christmas Trees
  • Santa Claus
  • Yule Log

 

Mistletoe and Holly:

Have you ever stopped to wonder what mistletoe has to do with Christmas? If you have wondered that, you are not alone. This poisonous parasitic plant originally got it’s fame in the worship of a goddess who was the goddess of love. In that worship the couple who kissed under the plant were supposedly granted great erotic escapades. Both holly and mistletoe were hung in doorways of temples and homes to invoke powers of fertility in those who stood beneath and kissed, causing the spirits of the god and goddess to enter them. The white berries of mistletoe were believed by pagans to represent droplets of the semen of the sun god. It seems pretty stupid to use this plant during a birthday celebration of the Son of God, who considers such eroticism a great sin. The holly wood was used by witches to make wands. Witches and other pagans regarded the red holly as a symbol of the menstrual blood of the queen of heaven, also known as Diana. Isn’t it interesting that the Catholics also use the title of “Queen of Heaven,” to refer to Mary. It’s more than mere coincidence.

The Christmas Tree:

Long before there was a Christmas, Egyptians brought green palm branches into their homes on the shortest day of the year in December as a symbol of life’s triumph over death. Romans adorned their homes with evergreens during Saturnalia, a winter festival in honor of Saturnus, their god of agriculture. Druid priests decorated oak trees with golden apples for their winter solstice festivities. In the middle ages, the Paradise tree, an evergreen hung with red apples, was the symbol of the feast of Adam and Eve held on December 24th. In Germany, the evergreen tree was used in worship and celebration of the yule god, also in observance of the resurrected sun god. The evergreen tree was a symbol of the essence of life and was regarded as a phallic symbol in fertility worship.

All of the events mentioned above have nothing to do with Christmas, and certainly none of them does anything to glorify Mashiach Yeshua!

Some well meaning Christians have argued that a Christmas tree is a symbol of life. I ask you, how can a dying tree be a symbol of life? Actually, what individual Christians do at the holidays I cannot judge because what they do is between them and God. I can only present the folly and hope that God will use the presentation to open eyes. A person who is in tune with the Holy Spirit will find out sooner or later that the practice is not the best thing in the world to do. I can however judge when a Christmas tree is placed on the altar of a Church. To me, there is no difference between that and when Israelites sacrificed to foreign gods in the Holy Temple. Remember too what price they paid for doing that.

Believe it or not, the Bible mentions the practice of setting up trees and adorning them with decorations. The scripture reads thusly:

“Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen; and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven. For the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain. For one cutteth a tree out of the forest. The work of the hands of the workman with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold. They fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not.”  Jeremiah 10:2-4

 

Santa Claus:

There is a lot that I have to say about this Anti-Christian character. Please go to the site category page to find the link to that page. On that page you will find a table where Santa Claus mimic’s and tries to replace the life and ministry of Yeshua.

The Yule Log:

While most people have heard of the Yule Log, few people realize that its tradition can be traced back to the days of the pagan Norsemen, or Vikings.

To celebrate their belief in the powers of the gods, the Norsemen held festivals. The father of the Gods was Odin or Thor, commonly called the Yule Father (Yule referred to the sun). The original Yule Log Ceremony was a festival celebrating the sun during the winter solstice, which occurs close to the time that Christmas is celebrated today.

Originally, the Yule Log was burned in honor of the gods and to bring good luck in the coming year. The log was usually from one of the largest trees that could be found. It was so massive that to haul it a team of horses or oxen were needed. After the Norman invasion of England in 1066, the Yule Log tradition was passed onto the British and evolved to the tradition that it is today.

Commercialization of the holiday:

As mentioned much earlier, Christmas has evolved into a commercial holiday. It seems that every year toy ads are out earlier than the year before. The day after Thanksgiving is always referred to as the start of the Christmas shopping season. When you go to the malls during this time you see basically two things; kids with a ravenous look in their eyes and parents who look like they are being unwillingly led on a date with debt. As I mentioned at the start of this article, there was a time when kids didn’t expect much and didn’t get too much either. In modern times, kids expect the world and the parents capitulate.

In my workplace I get to see the toll that the commercial holiday brings to parents these days. I conduct a little experiment every year and in that experiment I try to open the eyes of people without coming right out to tell them that they are being foolish in celebrating Christmas. Right around Thanksgiving, I start to count off the days until Christmas. The women at work will sigh every day, like they are in some sort of bondage or slavery. They tell me that they haven’t gotten the shopping done yet, or will tell me that they hate to shop. Some will tell me that they don’t have the money to buy everything that they need to buy for their kids or spouses. The real foolish ones tell me that they will charge most of the items and pay them off during the following year.

Friends, do you think that Yeshua ever intended for his birthday to be celebrated, let alone for it to become a day of financial bondage. Do you think that he expects you to go into hock to give presents to your loved ones. Do you really think that He would want you to be depressed over the whole idea? Don’t you think that Yeshua would like gifts for His birthday? Inviting widows and orphans to dinner would be nice. Feeding the poor would be a wonderful gift to Yeshua. Leading people to salvation in Yeshua Name would be an honorable gift for our King. Forgiving someone who has wronged you would please him so much. Repenting from bad habits and practices would make him leap for joy. These are gifts that Yeshua would accept, and when you help someone in need, you are giving Him wonderful gifts. And it is good to remember that we can give Him these gifts all year round. These gifts to Yeshua will be remembered forever and ascribed to you as righteousness.

The Removal of “Christ” from Christmas:

We have seen above that the tradition of Christmas has originated from something that is quite foreign. It has gone from a pseudo-Christian celebration for Yeshua to a commercial free-for-all where presents are given, and for many, especially non-Christians, that is all it is. We have seen that the Christian world has not escaped being tainted by the world concept of celebration, even to the point of embracing idolism and pagan customs in the celebration, in which God must breath a grieving sigh.

Over the years there has been a push to remove Yeshua from the celebration of Christmas. Not that I agree with the celebration of this tradition, because I firmly do not, but it has turned into a corruption of a corruption. A lot of this can be attributed (especially in The United States) to a liberal push for “political correctness.” Faith in Yeshua has borne the brunt of a lot of this political bovine scatology. There are those, in government, in social circles and in the liberal media who are striving to make Christmas a secular holiday. They feel that Yeshua is a threat to them and will do everything in their power to make a gradual change in things. So if it is a secular holiday or a pagan oriented day is there really a difference? Those things taken into account, why celebrate it at all.

I guess it all started in the 1960’s when prayer was removed from public schools in the guise that it was discriminatory to atheists and others who are afraid of God. I mean, after all, if there is no God, or if a person believes in another god, what harm could a prayer to Almighty God pose? This is akin to a child’s fear of the mythical boogie man. However, prayer to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob scares atheists, agnostics and people of other religions because it causes them to wonder if t their belief systems are wrong, and that they are sinners and that they need a redeemer. Faith in Yeshua is the only religion that provides a redeemer from sin and a tie with God Almighty. So, in the 60’s step one was implemented and with success.

Step two would then take place in the written media. A news media article was printed stating, “God Is Dead,” and listed things in the world that were wrong. So, in essence, the press was saying, “there can’t be a God if misery, war, famine and strife are allowed to go on around the world.” Now, most people looked at the article and probably dismissed it as garbage, but it planted an idea in the back of their minds. You see, most people believe that the government and the press are out for their best interests, but that is far from the truth. The press exists in order to tell you what powerful people want you to hear. That is why there is such an uproar about “talk radio” these days. The people in power see that Americans are starting to wake up and question what they are being told and that bugs the press and government to no end.

The press and the media have gone to great means to brainwash the people of the world, and especially in America. They have gone out of their way to see to it that they print or broadcast every find that evolutionist scientists come up with. Although evolution is still a theory, because it can never be established as a fact, they still pass it off as an established fact. They print all of that garbage because if they can get you and I to believe it, it further makes God look like an alien idea rather than the Creator and Sustainer of The Universe. So, step two has been implemented over the years, to destroy God and any of His credibility.

The next step is to change or obliterate religious holidays. I have been watching things and have found it interesting that Christian holidays are attacked and others have been pretty well left alone. Take the local paper for instance. On the beginning of Hanukkah there was a big banner at the top of the paper stating “Happy Hanukkah.” On New Years day, the banner read, “Happy New Year.” On Chinese New Year there were a lot of articles talking about the holiday, its celebration and its meaning. Yet, on Christmas day the banner read, “Happy Holidays.” The word Christmas was deliberately left out of the banner. The paper talked about places to go and see light displays around town, the lighting of the Christmas tree, how to decorate you tree at home and there was even an article about mistletoe, but little mention went to Church services, nativity scenes or anything else that showed the true reason for the holiday, specifically Yeshua! As another part of my experiment, I jumped around to all of the televised news broadcasts to see what they would say. They too showed lights in neighborhoods and such, but no services were told of and when each news broadcast signed off, they ended with “happy holidays.”

Now, from what I have written I hope that you don’t get the idea that I condone the celebration of Christmas, because in no way do I condone mixing pagan traditions with Christian traditions. I merely am showing how the secular part of society has come out to attack that “tradition,” as a pathway to dismiss and attack the true aspects of Faith in Yeshua.

Now, I don’t expect anyone to believe what I have said just on my own merit. You have never met me and don’t know what I am like. For that reason, I challenge the reader to do a couple of things. If you are a have Faith in Yeshua, I ask you to pray to God for wisdom and then study these things as I have.  Don’t believe what I have said unless it is substantiated by others and where spiritual things are concerned, if anything that I or anyone else says doesn’t correlate with the Bible, disregard it.

So I close now with an appeal to all who read this. Please don’t get burned out by trying to follow the traditions of men. Read and study. Don’t listen to people, listen to Yahweh, to His Spirit and to His Son.

NEW AGE BIBLE VERSIONS

 

The following table was taken from a flier for a book titled, “New Age Bible Versions.” The book is an exhaustive Documentation exposing the message, men and manuscripts moving mankind to the Antichrist’s One World Religion. The book makes a new case against the NIV, NASB, NKJB, NRSV, NAS, REb, RSV, CEV, TEV, GNB, Living, Phillips, New Jerusalem and New Century Bibles. It also includes the latest research supporting The Authorized King James Version.

The book is a result of an exhaustive six year collation of new bible versions, their underlying Greek manuscripts, editions and editors. It objectively and methodically documents the hidden alliance between new version and the New Age Movement’s One World Religion. More about the book after the chart.

 

 

The Antichrist will use the NEW VERSIONS to set up his One World New Age Religion, with its mark and worship of the Antichrist and dragon.

About The Book

 

The Message:

The emerging “new” Christianity  – with its substitution of riches for righteousness, a crown for a cross and an imitation for a new creation – is shown to be a direct result of the wording in new versions.

Documented are thousands of words, verses, and doctrines by which new versions will prepare the apostate churches of these last days to accept the religion of the Antichrist – even his mark, image and Lucifer worship. “THEY WORSHIPPED THE DRAGON” Revelation 14:4

The Men:

Each page opens a door exposing new version editors – in agreement with Lucerferians, occultists, and New Age philosophy – in mental institutions, séance parlors, prison cells, court rooms for heresy trials – and most shocking of all – denying that salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ. Five have lost their ability to speak. “BEWARE OF THE SCRIBES” Luke 20:46.

The Manuscripts:

The Greek manuscripts, critical editions, lexicons and dictionaries behind the new versions are examined, revealing their occult origins, contents, and yet unreleased material – a blueprint for the Antichrist’s One World Religion and government.

Presented also is the latest research proving the Authorized King James Version represents not only Christianity’s earliest and most widely used Greek text, but is the easiest version to read according to computer analysis based formulas from the Flesch-Kincaid research firm.

About The Author:

G.A. Riplinger has a B.A., M.A., and M.F.A. degrees and has done additional postgraduate study at Harvard and Cornell Universities. As a university professor, the author taught seventeen different courses, authored six college textbooks and was selected for the Honor Society’s teaching award and membership in the national Education Honorary. As one of the fifty educators world wide selected to be in an international edition of “Who’s Who,” the author was invited by the President’s Citizen Ambassador Program to be a representative to Russia. (Ps. 62:9, Luke 16:15, 1 Cor. 2:5)

  • “It may be the most important book ever written.” – Texe Marrs
  • “You have done a great service to the church…Publisher never receive books this well done.” – Dave Hunt
  • “You have created a masterpiece.” – Jack T. Chick
  • “I believe God sent it as a means of waking up Christians fro the end times battle with the forces of darkness.” – Wiley Cameron
  • “This monumental work…a masterpiece of scholarly revelation, has presented the world with a well documented account of the deadly results of faulty scholarship. The book towers over every other work that I have read, as Mt. Everest towers over every mountain. In astonishingly plain words and charts the author deals tremendous blows with unassailable evidence that it is the powers of darkness that have deceived many sincere scholars who have been led astray by persons “who have laid in wait to deceive.” (Eph. 4:14) The evidence is so well documented that the reader will know that the new bible versions are indeed leading multitudes of churches, missions, Bible schools and minister directly into the New Age.” – Cecil J. Carter

Delusion Resistance Review:

In short, this is a wonderful book. I first bought it in a small book store here in Carmichael, California. I bought it because I’ve been of the opinion that the King James Version is the only authorized version, and I wanted to enforce why I held that belief. In essence, on a confidence scale of my knowledge of the KJV before this book I would say I was a six out of ten. Now I am more like a ten out of ten.

I’ve always been one that likes books with charts and tables. To me, it makes a subject easy to understand if a chart is presented because I can compare without being distracted by the words of an author. This book was a delight to read. If there was any question as to what was being conveyed, a chart would soon follow to help me to understand the text.

Another thing that I liked is that the book doesn’t leave you wondering about anything. A lot of books fail to examine every detail; but this book tends to address my questions just as the questions were forming in my thought. I highly recommend this book and feel that it should be required reading and study at every seminary on Earth. I see this author as being a classic example of the Watchman in Ezekiel 33; who blows his trumpet when he sees the sword coming, warning the people of the city of impending invasion. Thanks to God for setting G.A. Riplinger on the wall, and thanks to this author for being faithful to blow the trumpet to warn the Church of the actions of nefarious people and entities that seek to destroy God’s People.

You can get this book from your local book store. If for some reason they can’t or won’t order the book for you, you can order it at www.chick.com .

The 200 Omissions

 

The following list is from a flier called the “New Eye Opener.” It was compiled and edited by author J.J. Ray. The flier uses key references to show how all modern Bibles differ from the King James Version and Textus Receptus from which it was translated. The publisher’s address is at the bottom of this document. I highly encourage everyone read this flier and then contact the publisher about the books that they offer.

These 200 Omissions are in the Greek Textus Receptus from which the King James Bible came. Griesbach, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Alford, Wordsworth, Westcott and Hort: in foot-notes and translations, have changed the Greek Textus Receptus in about 6,000 places. This is why we have so many omissions in our modern Bibles. Words omitted, in brackets, parentheses, or italics are counted as not authentic according to the BRAIN-WASHED modern scholarship. With a red pencil, mark all these omissions which occur in your Bible and be surprised.

This list is of New Testament Books only. The list is by book order and the sub-directories are in chapter order.

HERE’S THE ACID TEST

Any version of the Bible, that does not agree with the Greek Textus Receptus, from which the King James Bible was translated in 1611, is certainly to be founded on corrupted manuscripts. Origen, being a textual critic, is supposed to have corrected numerous portions of the sacred manuscripts. Evidence to the contrary shows he changed them to agree with his own human philosophy of mystical and allegorical ideas. Thus, through deceptive scholarship of this kind, certain manuscripts became corrupt. Evidently from this source our modern revised version Bibles and paraphrases have come. Read pages 900-902, Vol. 16, 1936 edition Encyclopedia Britannica and you will see that Origen taught that the Lord Jesus Christ is a created being who did not have eternal existence as God.

MODERN BIBLE VERSIONS ARE DANGEROUS

WATCH OUT FOR THEM!

 

THE BIBLE IS THE MOST WONDERFUL and precious book in the world. In these days of rapid change and crumbling foundations, what a blessing it is to be reminded that our Lord Jesus Christ said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35). What a comfort and encouragement comes as we read Psalm 119:89: “Forever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in the heaven.” How thankful we are that “the foundation of God standeth sure” (2 Timothy 2:19).

We must also be aware that the Bible is under attack. Satan, who succeeded in selling the first “revised” edition of God’s Word to Eve in the Garden of Eden, has surely been busy in this 20th century along the same lines. We know about the “population explosion” and the “explosion of scientific knowledge,” but we are also in the middle of a “Bible translation explosion” – a veritable flood of new Bible translations, versions, revisions and paraphrases, all claiming to be the “most accurate,” the “most readable” and the “most up to date.” The publishing and sale of these new Bibles has become a highly profitable business, employing all the psychological approaches of modern advertising to sell them to the public. Some think this proliferation of Bible versions is wonderful. But serious-minded, thoughtful people must eventually ask, “Which Bible is the real Bible, the true Word of God?”

In 2 Corinthians 2:17, the Spirit of God warned against the “many which corrupt the word of God.” Therefore it is not surprising in studying Church History to discover that such attempts to corrupt the Word of God are clearly evident in the altered, polluted and revised manuscripts purporting to be the Word of God. Unfortunately, many people today fail to see that even greater corruptions of the Word of God are taking place before our eyes. The purpose of this leaflet is to share with God’s people, simply and briefly, some of the important information we have found in studying this important subject.

It is impossible in such a limited space to trace the history and preservation of the true Word of God down through the centuries. However, in the providence of God, two very important things happened in the 15th and 16th centuries for which we should all be eternally grateful. First, was the invention of the printing press and second, the Protestant Reformation. It was the combination of these two developments that made possible the translation and publication of the Authorized King James Version of the Bible in 1611. From then until now, this wonderful gift of God and its subsequent translation into every known major language in the world has changed the course of history and we enjoy its benefits today.

In the latter part of the 19th Century, Satan and his angels of light setout to destroy the Church by undermining its foundation, the Bible. Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species was blindly accepted as “new light on an old problem” by the scholarship of that day which had become largely obsessed with rationalism and humanism. Theories and methods of “higher criticism” and “textual criticism” were developed and couched in such scholarly language that most people failed to recognize that these were actually attacks upon the Word of God – even though carefully disguised as an effort to “supply the English reader with a more correct text of the New Testament” and to “render the New Testament more generally intelligible.” The rush toward new versions was on and though the early progress was slow, we are seeing the results today. 

In order to properly comprehend the problem of modern Bible translations, it is important to remember these two important factors: first the reliability of the document being translated; second, the knowledge , skill and fidelity of the translators. On both counts, the King James Bible still stands supreme. In 1881, influenced by and sympathetic to the Darwinian theory of evolution, two men, Brooke Foss Westcott and Fenton J. A. Hort brought forth a very different version of the Greek New Testament – one which differed from the Textus Receptus (the underlying Greek text of the (KJV), in over 5700 places. This Westcott-Hort Greek Text was later to become the basis for the English Revised Version and the American Standard Version. It gave great weight to two corrupted manuscripts – the Vaticanus (Codex B) which was found in the Vatican Library in 1481 and was known to the KJV translators but was not used by them, and the Sinaiticus (Codex Aleph) which was found in a monastery wastebasket at the foot of Mount Sinai in 1844. The Vaticanus and Sinaiticus appear to have been copied from the same source in the 4th century and held great weight with Westcott and Hort because of their antiquity. Tischendorf, the discoverer of the Sinaiticus manuscript, noted at least 12,000 changes which had been made on this manuscript by others than the original copyist. It is difficult to understand why such documents as these could lead one to ignore the simple fact that the Greek text underlying the King James Version (the Textus Receptus) was in basic agreement with 90 – 95% of all known Scripture – related manuscripts, numbering over five thousand.

 

English Revised Version (1885)

American Standard Version (1901)

 

The first full-scale frontal attack on the Word of God came with the publication of the ERV in 1885, and its counterpart, the ASV in 1901. Only a few voices of protest were raised. Most staunch defenders of the faith of that day were apparently unaware that the ASV differed from the KJV in over 36,000 places or that the Greek text underlying the translation of the ASV (the Westcott-Hort Text) differed from the Textus Receptus (underlying the KJV) in over 5,700 instances. Possibly it was because the Fundamentalists then were too busy combating the modernists’ infiltration of seminaries and churches; or, perhaps it was due to the fact that the ASV never really found great acceptance publicly. It was not until the publication of the Revised Standard Version in 1946 and 1952 that many Fundamentalists became aware of how effectively a new Bible version or translation could be used as a tool of Satan.

 

Revised Standard Version (1946, 1952)

 

Some of God’s people woke up with a start when the Revised Standard Version was published in 1952. This version, supposedly a revision of the ASV of 1901, eliminated the word virgin in the prophecy of Christ’s birth in Isaiah 7:14; made numerous other blatant changes; and was copyrighted by the apostate National Council of Churches. Protests were heard far and wide! Sadly, many failed to recognize that some of the things they found so objectionable in the RSV were also true with the ASV. The furor over the RSV gradually died down. But this was the version which plowed the ground and paved the way for future perversions of the Scriptures. It had conditioned people to accept changes in the Bible – changes dictated by modern scholarship. At least the RSV left the word virgin in the New Testament references of the birth of Christ. It remained for the Good News Bible to remove it in both the Old and New Testaments.

 

Good News For Modern Man (1966)

Good News Bible (1976)

 

When the first edition of Good News For Modern Man (The New Testament in Today’s English) was published in 1966, the word virgin appeared in all the texts in Matthew and Luke referring to the birth of Christ. But, when the 2nd and 3rd editions were published and then the entire Good News Bible was published in 1976, the word virgin had mysteriously disappeared from Luke 1:27 while remaining in Luke 1:34 and Matthew 1:23. Of course, the latter two verses have no meaning at all if the word virgin is removed or replaced. Also, the blood of Christ, a most important and precious word and theme, was lacking in many key New Testament references. It was replaced by “death” or “costly sacrifice,” both good words in their own place but not what the Holy Spirit gave in the original text. The heretical views of the main translator, Dr. Robert Bratcher, help to explain the many places in which the Deity of Christ is played down or omitted. The Good News Bible is one of the worst versions, yet it has been distributed by millions, largely due to endorsements by Billy Graham, Bill Bright and other evangelical leaders.

 

The Living Bible (1967, 1971)

 

This is neither a translation nor a version – it is a paraphrase. The Living Bible, praised by Billy Graham and other new-evangelical leaders, has reached a publication figure of 37 million copies and has made its author, Ken Taylor, a wealthy man. IT is very readable, but at the expense of the truth in so many places. Taylor admits that the principle he worked from was not a “word-for-word” translation but rather a “thought-for thought paraphrase” which he called, “dynamic equivalence.” Taylor said he worked for the most part from the ASV or 1901, a corrupt translation to begin with. The Living Bible decimates the Scriptures, almost completely eliminating important and precious words and truths as grace (see John 1:17; Acts 4:33, 15:11, 20:24; Romans 3:24; 2 Corinthians 9:8; Ephesians 2:8-9; Jude 4) and repentance (see Matthew 9:13 and Acts 17:30). “Honor” is substituted for “begotten” in Acts 13:33, Hebrews 1:5 and 5:5. Significant changes were made regarding such matters as creation in Genesis 1:1-2 and a prophecy of Christ in Zechariah 13:6. The meaning of Romans 8:28 is changed completely. Vulgar language is used in John 9:34, 11:39 and 2 Kings 18:27. The language of 1 Samuel 20:30 in early editions of TLB shocked many but it has now been softened. The author has left the door open for further suggestions, corrections and clarifications. Who knows what future editions may contain? Do you want a Bible what is being constantly revised?

 

New American Standard Version (1960, 1971)

 

The NASV was to be the Bible for conservatives, evangelicals and fundamentalists. The Forward states that the NASV “has been produced with the conviction that the words of Scripture as originally penned in the Hebrew and Greek were inspired of God.” The basic problem with this translation, however, is revealed in this statement: “This translation follows the principles used in the American Standard Version 1901 known as the Rock of Biblical Honesty.” Who gave the ASV such a title? In the Principles of Revision, it is stated: “In revising the ASV consideration was given to the latest available manuscripts with a view to determine the best Greek text. In most instances the 23rd edition of the Nestle Greek New Testament was followed.” This gets right to the heart of the major difficulty of all modern Bible versions – most are patterned after the corrupted Westcott-Hort Greek Text instead of the Textus Receptus. The word virgin does  appear in Isaiah 7:14, but a footnote says, “or, young woman” – no doubt a sop to the liberals. Verses like Matthew 18:11 and Matthew 23:14 appear in brackets with a footnote saying, “most ancient manuscripts omit this verse” or, “this verse is not found in earliest manuscripts.” A corrupted Greek text thus becomes the basis for raising questions about the entire verse. In other instances as in Luke 24:40, the number of the verse appears followed by “see marginal note” which explains that “some ancient Mss. add verse 40.” One wonders if the NASV translators were determined to list everything anyone ever added or left out of the manuscript until one discovers that some parts of verses were left out with no explanation whatsoever as in Colossians 1:14 and 1 Timothy 6:5. It is sad to see so many conservatives pushing this version and downgrading the KJV.

 

New International Version (1973, 1978, et.al)

 

Like the NASV, the NIV was produced by those who are said to “Hold a high view of Scripture.” Sponsored by the New York Bible Society, they admitted the NIV translators represent a “Broad spectrum in evangelical Christianity” and the list of names confirms the broadness of the spectrum. Instead of being a revision of a previous version, the Preface says, “It is a completely new translation made by many scholars working directly from the Greek.” The Greek text used in an “eclectic one.” Translated into common language means they made a choice of different texts supposedly in “accord with sound principles of textual criticism.” However, they did not state what those principles were – and much of the previous undermining of the Scripture has been done on the supposed basis of “sound principles of textual criticism.” Examining the text, you find that the NIV leaves out many of the same verses and portions that the ASV and the NASV also omit. An added problem, however, stems from the fact that where an entire verse is omitted, even the verse number is missing and only a small letter refers to a footnote of explanation. A careful study of this version confirms what one Christian leader said several years ago, “For every verse or word clarified in these new translations, two new problems are created.” We agree with his statement. In a critique of the New International Version, one Fundamentalist scholar correctly objected that “words were dropped out; words were added; and key words were sometimes changed.” Yet, the same objection must also be raised concerning the New American Standard Version which this same Fundamentalist scholar defends and recommends. This objection – the deletion or addition of words – also applies to all the other modern versions. We still insist on using and recommending only the Authorized Version.

 

New King James Version (1979, 1982)

 

The NKJV is now deceiving more believers than any of the previous polluted Bible versions. Claims that the NKJV has “preserved the authority and accuracy,” and “improved the purity and beauty” of the original KJV, are impressive but patently false. The NKJV text is actually a hybrid mixture which incorporates many word changes identical with or similar to the corruptions found in the other modern Bible versions. Late editions of the NKJV contain changes in text and footnote from that of the first editions and further changes are contemplated. The NKJV is not the pure word of God.

New Revised Standard Version (1990)

The NRSV is the latest product of ecumenical scholarship and will soon replace the RSV, thus helping to fill the financial coffers of the apostate National Council of Churches which holds the copyrights on both the RSV and NRSV. Translated by liberal Protestant, Catholic and Jewish scholars, and eliminating so-called sexist language, the NRSV with the Apocrypha, has already received the Imprimatur of the Roman Catholic Church and may well become the ecumenical Bible of the future.

The more we have studied and researched this question of Bible versions, the more convinced we are that many of or dear brethren in the ministry and many Fundamentalist leaders have not taken time to look at the abundant evidence now available that clearly demonstrated the inaccuracies, inconsistencies and confusion resulting from new translations. It is clear that many scholars who consider themselves to be evangelical have been influenced by the apostate scholarship of the past and present. We recognize the difference between “higher criticism” (which would be rejected by most Fundamentalists) and “textual criticism” (which is accepted by most Fundamentalists). But many do not see how the whole field of “textual criticism” has been shaped and molded by false premises and conclusions of “higher criticism.” The central issue goes back to the acceptance of the Westcott-Hort Text instead of the Textus Receptus as the basis for Bible translations, versions and revisions.

While recognizing the extreme difficulties involved in translations of any kind and especially of a book as important as the Bible, we are convinced that God gave us the King James Bible – and that it will be far better for us to expand our vocabulary in order to understand its terminology than to continually re-write the Bible to suit those who will not be able to understand it anyway apart from the New Birth, or Christians who are too lazy to study. It is true that some English words have changed in their meaning and others are no longer in common usage. Such words are comparatively few and can easily be comprehended with the use of a good dictionary; but if the word is missing altogether, what then?

Untold confusion is caused by the promotion and use of so many different Bible versions. Why don’t more pastors and Christian leaders see this? Congregational reading is becoming virtually impossible. Bible memorization is most difficult. And just think of the uncertainty which results when some verses are in the Bible, some are in with brackets around them, and some are missing completely. And many, whether in the text or in the footnotes, have their validity challenged.

For all these reasons and many more, we conclude that modern Bible versions are dangerous and that God’s people should beware of them. We close with a plea to all who love the Lord and His Word – look into this important question quickly and carefully. Then join us in seeking to alert and warn others concerning these subtle and devastating attacks being made upon God’s Holy Word.
