Rend your hearts rather than your garments, and turn back to Hashem your God. For He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in kindness, and renouncing punishment
Constantine was the quintessential politician. In order for everyone in his empire to “play nice” he combined holidays and traditions into one. The last week in December, especially December 25, has been celebrated for millenia prior to the birth of Jesus by multiple pagan religions. Constantine simply “added in” all the pagan celebrations and packaged it into a day to celebrate Jesus. It is patently obvious that Constantine did not know the nature of God. He just wanted peace in his empire. Can Christianity ever be forced on anyone? But that is what he tried to do.
And it is wrong. Does God EVER countenance pagan influence in the Bible? Would God EVER allow pagan traditions with a holy observance? Would God EVER share HIS sacred celebrations with a pagan god?
You all know the answer. But we are so steeped in the evil of Christmas that our minds slip away from contemplation of this. As did I when I first vaguely became aware of this some years ago. It has taken me years to come to terms with the entrenched evil attached to this holiday. Tearing the pagan away from Christmas has been HARD.
As is any entrenched sin in our lives.
The pagan tradition of bringing in trees and decorating them and bowing to them was forbidden in the Old Testament. Yet, what do we do at Christmas? We bring in a tree, decorate it and then bow to it to receive the gifts placed underneath it. Without any idea of the real meaning of what we are doing.
No, God does not repackage pagan traditions into His own. He did not repackage the “christmas” tree, nor did He repackage Nimrod’s birthday. Those who know His divine nature know better than that. Man did this.
But, but….christmas is FUN. Like going to an amusement park. Yes, Satan packages acts abhorrent to God into things pleasurable to our sin nature.
Pagan christmas needs to be separated out from the devout Christian. If Christians want to celebrate Jesus’ birthday a different day and different traditions must be chosen. The current tradition of christmas is steeped in the idolization of money, wealth and greed. Christmas is about the Haves and the Have-nots. It is Satan’s temptation wrapped in a shiny gift. Adding in a few hymns and good cheer and unauthorized religious observance doesn’t make it right. One must ever unequally yoke the good with the bad.
Because every year we obey Satan. Shame on us. It is time to get back to the beginning and back to the Bible.
No where in the Bible is the celebration of the DAY of the birth and death of Jesus commanded or suggested or observed by the early Christian church.
No, the early Christian church was Jewish. And because we threw out the Jewishness of Christianity, we don’t understand what we are to BE celebrating.
But I tell you, here and now, that combining Jesus’ birth date with Nimrod and Saturnalia, and His death and resurrection with Ishtar, is blasphemous.
God doesn’t share with anyone.
And for certain the one day that Jesus WASN’T born was on Nimrod’s birthday. Read about Nimrod if you will. He was evil incarnate.
What are we to celebrate then? We are to follow and celebrate what we are told in the Bible to celebrate eternally. This includes everything that God stated “This will never end”. This includes 3 Jewish holidays and Communion.
But you say “I am not Jewish”. As a christian you have been grafted into the tree so yes, you are adopted into all the traditions and rules appointed by God that He states will never end. Look for these in the Old Testament. They are uncommon and eye-opening.
Few in the Christian world adhere to these commandments. Because in our arrogance we threw out Jewish culture, teachings and history from Christianity. We cut off The Way’s arms and legs and positioned ourselves for the Great Deception.
Most Christian churches erroneously think that the Old Testament is not very relevant in today’s world. Because we are now steeped in cultural relativism, and the Old Testament is uncomfortable. And we dont understand the ancient Jewish culture and thought. But disregarding the Old Testament is blasphemous. The New Testament only stands on the foundation of the Old Testament. And when God said that “this celebration will never end” He meant that it will never end. Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection did not negate these celebrations.
So what celebrations am I talking about? They are these:
The Holy Convocation in the Feast of Weeks (Lev 23:15-25) Note that it states: “It is a statute forever in all your dwelling places throughout your generations.”
The Day of Atonement (Lev 23:27-32) Note what verse 31 states: “It is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.”
Sukkot (Lev 23:34-44) Note what vs 41 states: “It is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month.”
God doesn’t often say that “this is a rule or feast that is to be celebrated forever”. He put that in there so that we would stop wool gathering and pay attention. There are a few OT rules that He adds “and this will never end” which means that we should also pay attention to it.
God wants us to obey Him, not make up celebrations that He did not authorize. Constantine was like Saul in 1 Samuel 13, who, pressured by his troops, offered a sacrifice to God after he waited for Samuel for 7 days. But it wasnt up to Saul to offer a sacrifice. That was Samuel’s job. And it wasnt up to Constantine to change God’s appointed feasts and day of rest. And he will be judged for it, as will all of us who follow his authority and not God’s.
God, in His wisdom and patience, can turn any evil into good. And in His divine and holy grace He turns hearts to him, even at Christmas. But it is in spite of us to minister to and reach the lost.
It isn’t up to us to decide what holy celebrations we will honor. God has told us what to do. It is time we start to obey.
The Bible speaks of a Great Deception in the End Times. And people have been searching for one Great Deception. But I believe that the Great Deception is all-inclusive. the Bible tells us that in the End Times everything we know to be true is a lie. I have already discussed the lie of the dinosaurs. Now I would like to turn my attention to aliens.
But first we must understand the purpose of why God created the earth in the first place. It was to be a physical garden where the Trinity Godhead and His counsel, or Elohim, could reside. It was to be administered and cared for by his dearest creation, human beings, who were His children. This place was unique and special, an immense circular flat plane placed on great pillars. The description is very similar to the recent resurgence in the Flat Earth theory, although that isn’t completely correct either, and is consistent with the Old Testament Jewish description of the physical form of the earth and firmament as found in numerous passages in the Bible. The “firmament” (sky/heavens/universe) was created to show God’s majesty and power, to regulate times and seasons, to light the world, to instruct and warn.
Therefore from this we know that we are unique and special. Yet there is a body of evidence suggesting that we are not alone. So how do we explain this?
The Bible says that heaven is a physical place. Ancient historical texts referenced in the Bible such as the Book of Enoch goes into great description regarding this. We know that the earth is God’s footstool and I believe that statement is both poetic and literal in that God is on His great throne in His great temple and right below Him is a window where He can view all the great circular plane of the earth in its’ entirety.
As a physical place, it is possible to get there. We know this from the Genesis account of the Tower of Babel. Whatever the humans of the day were building it was so grand and immense that it was theoretically possible to reach where God resides. God says in Genesis 11:6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. I believe that God was speaking literally, that this tower and all it represented literally threatened His physical residence. We also know that Elisha physically was transported to heaven, as was Jesus in His ascendance. Elisha was transported via a “chariot of fire”, which I believe to be a supernatural vehicle that allows passage between the realms, a vehicle like the UFO’s of our current age.
One very important point that is critical to know about Satan. He copies what God has created. As second to God, he will know also how to transport between realms, as he transported himself in the amazing account of the Book of Job. While it is fantastical to think, I believe that our UFO’s are physical evidence of that transport between realms, and that the passengers are supernatural beings. It is possible, and probable, that these vehicles are used by both God’s angels and Satan’s army.
I believe that this is important in the End Times. Revelation 9:7 discusses a great pestilence that will descend on the world with the opening of the abyss and a description of the terrible creatures that will descend on us. I believe that this is a demonic invasion that will hide as an alien invasion, something that Satan has been preparing minds for since the beginning of the 20th century.
The show Ancient Aliens is very interesting and I believe that they see but do not see. And the lie is that aliens are not a natural part of God’s creation. They are the result of Satan’s seed as mentioned in Genesis and we are being prepared to receive them through the alien deception. Keep this in the back of your mind and do not accept the lie that other world’s are inhabited.
I may be wrong about this. But my spirit tells me that I am on the right track and it gives a reasonable explanation to tie these passages in the Bible with what I observe in the sky.
Test everything and keep an open mind. Selah.
I recently saw a clip of a kangaroo fighting with a man. Kangaroos are incorrectly thought to be cuddly marsupials as depicted in Winnie the Poo but that popular opinion is absolutely untrue. And when I saw the Kangaroo I was struck, actually gobsmacked as the Brits say, by what I think was a Divine Revelation.
I have always wondered why the dinosaurs were not taken into the Ark as Noah took every creature two by two. I believe the reason is that the dinosaurs were not created by God. Instead, they are part of the corrupted flesh discussed in Genesis chapter 6. The Bible, the book of Enoch (described in the Bible multiple times as a factual historical document and so dangerous that I believe it was suppressed until recently) and ancient texts like the Book of Giants discuss the children of the “sons of God”, divine beings who disobeyed God and came to earth to mate with humans. One of the hallmarks of “corrupted flesh” was IMMENSE SIZE. I think that the corrupted creatures of old are distinguished by missing genes to stop growth. So to find the corrupted animals one must look for creatures of immense size.
Hence the dinosaurs, creatures of immense size. While the Bible mentions great creatures multiple times, it is in reference to the behemoth, the dragon and the Leviathan, three specific creatures. In the dinosaurs, we have hundreds. We know that God had to destroy the earth in the great flood because all of humanity had been corrupted both genetically and spiritually, which threatened God’s plan of redemption. God literally waited until the last-minute, until only a few humans still retained pure human DNA, as Jesus could not have any DNA corruption. God hated to destroy what He created. And this is why the dinosaurs were not included in the ark. They are not part of His creation.
I also believe that this is one of the references to the End Times return to “in the days of Noah”, as dinosaurs will be returning in our misguided effort to bring them back by DNA manipulation.
Woe to us when this happens.
Back to the kangaroo. I was suddenly blindsided by what I was really seeing. The original blueprint of the T-rex. Look at them, compare them and you will see what I mean. I believe that other animal blueprints can be found if one chooses to look for them.
Dinosaurs did not exist by themselves millions of years ago. They existed as a horrible experiment gone wrong by the actions of the Elohim. And God wiped them from existence. They sank to the bottom when the flood waters receded because that is what great weight does. Test this in your heart and do not believe the lie. The End Times great deception is many fold, and the current and accepted dinosaur theory is one of them.
The question that has haunted Biblical scholars: Is mention of America in the Bible?
I believe the answer is yes but to understand where we are, one must understand God’s purpose for America.
God’s purpose for America is the protection of His people Israel.
America is first mentioned in Daniel 7:4: The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it.
Why do I say that? In Bible prophesy countries are not often listed as names we recognize but as symbols or the initial name of the area. This verse is describing two famous symbols of two countries: the Lion (Britain) and the Eagle (America). The eagle’s wings are on the back of the lion and then separates. This is describing the American colonies declaring independence from Britain and standing on its own. So we see the beginning of our great nation is described in Old Testament Bible prophesy.
Then I believe that America is referenced twice more, once again in Old Testament Bible prophecy and once by Jesus.
The Old Testament Bible prophesy outlines our mission and is found in Jeremiah 23:1-8:
Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of my pasture!” declares the Lord. 2 Therefore this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to the shepherds who tend my people: “Because you have scattered my flock and driven them away and have not bestowed care on them, I will bestow punishment on you for the evil you have done,” declares the Lord. 3 “I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and will bring them back to their pasture, where they will be fruitful and increase in number.4 I will place shepherds over them who will tend them, and they will no longer be afraid or terrified, nor will any be missing,” declares the Lord.
In Daniel, America becomes independent and stands as a man. In Jeremiah, this man becomes a shepherd for God’s people Israel when the nation is re-formed. We were one of the driving forces that fulfilled this purpose with our intervention in WW II and with the creation and protection of Israel, along with Britain.
Woe to America if we ever deviate from this purpose! And of course we will, as Israel will be crushed at some point in the years to come. We see the beginnings of it now, as America becomes more and more corrupt. I believe this was God’s purpose for supernaturally raising up President Trump. God is not ready for us to abandon our purpose…yet.
I believe there is another reference to America, a darker purpose, and this is a little oblique so I certainly may not be correct. What one must understand about the Bible is that it often has multiple meanings both literal and figurative and often these meanings are both for the present and the future. Jesus references a passage from Job, copied below:
Does the eagle mount up at your command, and make its nest on high? On the rocks it dwells and resides, on the crag of the rock and the stronghold. From there it spies out the prey; its eyes observe from afar. Its young ones suck up blood; and where the slain are, there it is” (Job 39:27-30)
Note that the Eagle is a PREDATOR, devouring the slain. Scholars think that Jesus’ reference to the Eagle is of the church but birds and Eagles in the Bible are harbingers of death and evil, not good. Both America and the Nazi’s chose the eagle as their symbol, which I think was purposeful and is significant in understanding Jesus’ reference to Eagles.
In Matthew 24:28 Jesus has been discussing signs of the end times and makes this oblique reference: For wherever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together. I believe that this is a reference to both the Nazi regime and to America as harbingers of war in the end times. America is a war monger and has been ever since WW II. I believe this is a reference to our country as soldier of the world. And I think it has both our designated purpose as shepherd/protector to Israel and our dark purpose as a leader who ushers in the End Times. And I believe that we are seeing both on several levels right now as America leads the world in Jesus’ prediction of the “rumors of wars” as signs leading up to the end times, which I have interpreted as both the Cold/Spy Wars and the War on Thought waging now in our country.
I have not seen evidence yet of America other prophetic end times as of yet, and I think that our purpose ends once we end our protection of Israel. Daniel prophesies also in chapter 7 that Germany (Leopard) will rise four times, most probably with the return of the Nazi regime, and I surmise that the 4th Reich will end us, as a fitting end to the terrible depravity and corruption that started in the 1960’s. But I have no proof of this. Time will tell.
So what do I want you to understand from this post? Know our purpose and support Israel. Do all you can to battle the corruption and evil that is suffocating America. Repent of your sins and return to God. And, most important, preach the Gospel, the redemptive work of Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ, the son of the living GOD.
I grow ever more disturbed and despondent over what is happening in our world today. And the Bible tells me that what I am experiencing is only the start of what is to come. To that end, it is essential that we know and cling to what we are commanded to do in BOTH the Old and New Testiments.
Recently I re-visited Jesus’ sermon on the mount and I was struck by what has been universally thrown away from this message. I would like to highlight a few salient points for your edification from Matthew ch 5, and encourage you to ponder them with me in the light of current and past world events.
When I compare Jesus’ description of the Christian in the first several verses with what Christians are today I am sickened by the chasm that has developed over the past several decades. Jesus blesses those who are poor in spirit, meek, merciful, pure in heart, hungry for righteousness. When I compare this composite with what is valued in Western culture I see the exact opposite. Pride, greed, hypocracy, judgement, violence, pursuit of happiness, love of money, commercialism and rampant evil are our legacy to our children. Based on this, my feeling that God is judging the West may be a valid one.
I find it interesting that the rise of a people and culture completely opposite and uncompromising to Western thought coincides with the degradation of Jesus’ teachings. Yes, I am talking about our Muslim brothers, yet not in the way you think. I believe God has given the West over to them in a sort of global Trojan-like war, and in many ways I agree that this is just….. even though I struggle with this on a personal level, as no matter how awful a culture is, it is hard to see my culture destroyed for it is all that I know.
Jesus warns Christians that they are salt and light and are good for nothing when they become ineffective. Are we are now ineffective in Western society. We have allowed our voice to be shut down with the rise of ideas like political incorrectness, a thought that came out of communism and Thought Control. We stand by and watch sin explode over the airwaves, the medium of Satan the Prince of the Air. Why do you think he has that title? We are seeing the fruition of it now through the bombardment of sin over the airwaves which God has allowed to be Satan’s realm.
Jesus states a stern warning over our attitude towards others and He introduces the idea of Thought Sin. Dismissive, judgmental comments towards others denigrating their worthiness are condemned by Him, with the stern and awful warning that failure to heed this will lead to judgment by hellfire. We MUST heed this warning with full attention yet few ever mention this in sermons or discussions. We don’t fully appreciate that we are made in God’s image; therefore calling someone ‘stupid’ or worthless is a great offense to God. With the rise of the internet the hostility and “trolling” of people, the disdain and hostile judgement have exploded. This experiment in open access has shown that easy knowledge is full of temptation to harm. But shutting it down isn’t the answer, as it is our sinful nature that is the foundation for evil in all its forms. Trying to fix a broken foundation by gluing holes in the walls is meaningless.
Fix the heart and you fix the problem.
Jesus introduces the idea of lust as a form of adultery. Now it is no longer the action but the thought that precedes it. Our society is rotten with lust and sex is the gateway to our pocketbook. The saying “sex sells” is a true reflection of our seductive fall into depravity. Jesus states unequivocably that re-marrying after divorce is adultery and divorcing for any reason outside of adultery is adultery. This command has been almost wiped off the face of the Christian western theology. But God won’t remove a command just because we don’t want to follow it. So expect judgment when one is living in active sin…and adultery is an active, daily, living sin.
The next part is very difficult for me personally as it introduces an extreme form of altruism. Jesus commands us to “turn the other cheek” when slapped, to give more than asked when sued, to go two miles when forced to do one. The idea behind this is to show altruistic and sacrificial love to people who try to harm you. The foundations are time, care and a rejection of materialism. As one can easily see, these are what we lack most of all today. We are too busy, too apathetic, too wrapped up in what we think we want and need. Electronics are our god and they are an expensive master. Who has time or money to obey this command? We also have allowed ourselves to become isolated in our communities and breaking down the walls to promote altruistic relationships is no longer valued in our culture.
Lastly, chapter 5 ends with loving our enemies. If one loves an enemy the above commands become a natural extension of this love. I think a warning needs to be given for this though. Loving ones enemy is not the same as submitting to ones enemy. In other words, for an easy and tired example, I can and must love persons who struggle with same-sex attraction or pedophilia or gender dysphoria but I cannot support their actions as it is against the laws of God and against the laws of DNA. I can and must care for them as people, treat them kindly and fairly, help them and not judge them personally. But I cannot support laws that allow them to harm themselves or others as God has deemed their actions as harmful to their bodies and to society as a whole. And this balance is difficult in the course of daily living.
But that is the crux of it.
Christianity is difficult.
It is a daily denial of self and in a culture where self is the new god, where we are our own star of our show, where what we have is more important that what we are.
I fear that these divine principles are breathing their last unless we come as a people, a nation and a culture to full and complete repentance.
