Where Do We Go When We Die? Part 3 of 3

There are two principles I would like to mention.

1. Priorities. As Christians, the priority is to be with Jesus. Paradise, heaven, New Jerusalem - whatever stages we find in the Bible, the priority of being with our Lord is the important principle. Jesus said, in John 14:3: "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." It is better to be absent from the body and present with the Lord. Paul said he was hard pressed whether to stay here or go to heaven, because he was given a glimpse into heaven and knew the indescribable joy of being there, but he also realized that God had a job for him to do here on earth, first.

2. The Permanence of The Decision. There is no purgatory or 'holding place.' That idea came straight out of the pagan mystery religions. There is not a shred of evidence in Scripture to support such a fantasy, but it did serve the purpose of pagan religions. Your destiny cannot be changed. The Bible tells us that 'it is appointed unto to man once to die, and after that, the judgment.' There are no second chances. This is it. He requires that we live by faith. Today is the day of decision. We are not guaranteed one more moment of life on earth than the one we breathe this moment.

As in our example of the rich man, one of the tortures of hell is to look across the fixed gulf and view the comforts and blessings of those who have accepted Christ. I believe that throughout eternity the unbeliever will be constantly reminded of what he missed because he rejected God's call. I believe he will remember services where he heard the gospel message, or times when a Christian shared the gospel opportunity with him, and where the tug of the Holy Spirit was strong in his heart, but he walked away from it and rejected it. In eternity it will be an instant replay over and over again in his mind - that he had a chance that he could have accepted, but he did not

You may say, "I don't believe that," as if by not believing you could make it untrue. Whether you believe it or not, it's still true. The truth does not depend on belief in it. Eternity for those who reject Jesus Christ will be a place where, as you saw in the case of the rich man, you would never want to go, and you would never want anyone you love to go.

You may say, "I don't believe in electricity." The lights will still go on.

Truth is truth. That's why God has given us the Holy Scriptures, so that we can know the truth - and that truth will set us free.

Where Do We Go When We Die? Part 2 of 3

Let's review where these two men are now. These are two men who lived on earth before Jesus died on the cross and ascended to heaven, so these are Old Testament individuals. Lazarus and the rich man, have changed places after death. The rich man is now in Hades, a place of torment and flames, where he remembers life in the flesh and mourns at his choices. Lazarus, a beggar in the flesh, was carried to Paradise by the angels when he died and is now comfort and companionship.

Each of them is now in a temporary place: Lazarus in Abraham's bosom (Paradise) and the rich man in Hades.

Hades is an intermediate place of hell. The unrighteous dead continue in Hades (those who died before the cross and Christ's ascension) until a particular time in the future, God's judgment of the Great White Throne. At this time Hades 'gives up the dead' and they are judged and passed into the lake of fire. This is in Revelation 20:

"Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire." This is the permanent hell. For all eternity.

Now let's look at the case of Lazarus in the intermediate heaven, Abraham's bosom (or Paradise). Remember that we are talking in this story about the righteous believers who died before the cross and the ascension of Jesus Christ. There was no change in their abode until Jesus ascended to the Father.

Watch what happens now. When Lazarus (a believer before Christ's ascension) dies, his body went to the grave, and his soul and spirit went to Paradise...but when Jesus died on the cross, was buried and he rose again, on the day of his ascension something changed. (Note: Some believe that believers stay in Paradise until a later resurrection; the essential difference is timing. We will proceed on this first thesis in this blog, however.)

Look at Ephesians 4:8-10: "Therefore He says: 'When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men.' (Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)"

Here is what happened according to the Bible. When Jesus ascended after death he went into the earth and he led captivity captive. (Note: Both Hades and Paradise are considered to be located in separate places somewhere in the inner earth.)He went to Paradise, and he took all the people who were in Paradise, and he took them with him up to the third heaven. Paradise is no longer an intermediate place; Paradise is now with God in heaven. Jesus took all those who were in Paradise - all the Old Testament saints - all who had died and believed God before the ascension, and he took them to heaven. The New American Standard Bible frames it this way:

"Therefore it says, 'WHEN HE ASCENDED ON HIGH, HE LED CAPTIVE A HOST OF CAPTIVES, AND HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN.' (Now this expression, "He ascended," what does it mean except that He also had descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, so that He might fill all things.)"

He took them to the third heaven. How do we know? Jesus said to the thief on the cross, "Today you will be with me in Paradise." Also, Paul speaks of his own experience in 2 Corinthians 12:2-4: "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven. And I know such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows— how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter." Paul, a New Testament saint, and after Christ's ascension, went to Paradise in the third heaven, in soul and spirit; he wasn't sure whether he was there in the flesh.

So if a New Testament Christian's body goes into the grave, but his soul and spirit go to Paradise, there's another problem...in what form is he in Paradise without his body? Well, let's look at 2 Corinthians 5:1-5: "For we know that if our earthly house, this tent [our body], is destroyed, we have a building from God [a heavenly body], a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee."

The spirit desires to be clothed. A body from heaven awaits us when we die. When we die as Christians God gives us a 'clothing' that's not our resurrection body yet, but an intermediate body. We recognize and fellowship with each other. When our fleshy body is resurrected from the grave we get our permanent heavenly body (I'll address that in another blog.)

Where Do We Go When We Die? Part 1 of 3

Where are our loved ones who have died? Do we go to heaven or to the grave?

Dr. David Jeremiah, a Christian minister, addressed this subject a while back and he told a story of a tombstone in Indiana which was over 100 years old and had this epitaph:

Pause, stranger, when you pass me by.
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, so you will be.
Prepare yourself to follow me.

Someone had come along and had written his own words beneath the poem:

To follow you I'm not content
Until I know which way you went.

Most people want to know two things about their deceased loved ones: Where are they, and how are they? Those are questions that have no doubt risen in the minds of people since the beginning of time. We know that New Testament Christians asked questions about this issue because Paul addressed it with some of them in 1 Thessalonians 4:13:

"But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope..." He was using the term 'fallen asleep' as it is often used in scripture, to refer to a believer's death. Jesus used it in John 11:11 referring to Lazarus when he had been in the grave for three days. The Book of Acts uses it about King David in the Old Testament: "After he had served his own generation by the will of God he fell asleep and was buried with his fathers..."

It's instructive that he used the same word that was used to describe someone who spent a night in an inn and got up the next day to continue his journey. That's exactly what happens to a believer's body when he dies. It goes to sleep and is put in the 'hotel,' awaiting the time when it's resurrection occurs. The body is the house in which the real person lives, the shell in which he resides. But, that's not the real issue. We know that the body isn't the real person. So what happens to the real person?

As with everything else, if we just study the Bible we can usually find the answer. It's the only authority on the subject. Depending on whether a person is a Christian or a non-Christian, Paul shows that the results are not the same. So, to see how this works we'll look at the story of the rich man and Lazarus. We'll track them in life, in the grave and after death, in eternity.

In their lifetimes, Luke 16:19-21: “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores." In life the rich man lived the 'good life,' had good things, was wealthy. The beggar, Lazarus, was sick and hungry and poor, so poor that his sores were licked by dogs, even though the rich man could easily have had his servants helped him.

In death, verse 22: "So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried." No mention is made of Lazarus, the beggar, being buried. Due to his poverty he was possibly not even buried, but perhaps was put in the potter's field, or perhaps they threw his body into Gehenna, the city dump. The real person, though, was carried by angel's to Abraham's bosom. The rich man was buried and no doubt had a lavish funeral and was honored by his friends and relatives, but there is no mention of being carried to Abraham's bosom by an angel.

After death, verses 23-24: "And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’" This is very important, because Jesus himself is telling this true story, and no one else but Jesus could know what happens after death. We know its a true story because Jesus uses Lazarus' name, which he never did when telling parables. This was not the same Lazarus that Jesus raised from the dead, but someone the Lord personally knew and witnessed in life, in death and after death.

This true story lays a foundation for us to understand exactly what happens. The Bible teaches that before the ascension of Jesus Christ there was an immediate place where the souls of men went at death. This place is composed of three areas: 1) Abraham's bosom 2) a great fixed gulf and 3) Hades, the place of torment.

Abraham's bosom is also called Paradise and is the place where the righteous dead went, a place of comfort and companionship. Verse 25 says: "But Abraham said, ‘Son (the rich man), remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented.'" We find out here that the angel carried Lazarus' real person to Paradise (1 above), and the rich man's went to Hades (3 above), where the souls of the wicked go. Notice, also, that in verses 23-24 above, it says that the rich man was 'tormented in this flame.' The destiny of these two men is fixed.

Between Paradise and Hades we are told in Verse 26 that there is a great fixed gulf (2 above): "And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’ " Jesus said there is a chasm between these two places which cannot be crossed under any circumstance. Keep in mind that this story applies to Old Testament people, before Christ's ascension to heaven. His death on the cross had not yet occurred when these two people died.

Do you notice how in death the rich man and Lazarus have changed places? The rich man is now the beggar, and Lazarus is now rich in eternity. The rich man is now not only a beggar, but he's in a place of MEMORY (verse 25) and THIRST. He is conscious of what he has missed; this is one of the torments he experiences. We see in verses 27-31 that it is also a place of MOURNING: “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’” He begs Abraham to send Lazarus to warn his five brothers, but Abraham refuses because they won't listen now any more than they have in the past. The word of God through Moses and the prophets is more powerful than someone coming back from the dead, according to Jesus' telling of the story. If they won't listen before, they won't listen, period.

The Funeral

I just returned home from attending a funeral today. Actually it was a memorial service.

This service had the potential of being the epitome of a depressing event. The young lady, Katie, was only 24 years old and had been murdered, her head bashed in by her 'boyfriend' of 42. Her grandmother and her cousin arrived within moments of witnessing, or becoming a part of, the murder. The body was still warm.

There was reason to believe that the murder was premeditated, since two days prior the telephone lines had been cut underneath the house. I learned just today that the man has been charged with first degree murder, and police are looking for another person or persons. They believe he may have had accomplices. Certain paperwork dossiers are missing from the house.

It gets worse. Katie lived with her grandparents, neither of whom is well physically. The grandmother's health has partially disabled her. The grandfather has terminal cancer, and a week ago he suffered a severe heart attack and has been in CCU ever since. He and Katie were very close, and he had been teaching her all the financial ins and outs so that she could handle business when he was gone. She did everything for her grandparents - cooked, cleaned, ran errands - just everything. They all loved each other.

Since an autopsy was done on her, and due to the nature of the death, the decision was made not to have a funeral. And that's the reason for the memorial service. With that stage set you may see why this service might reasonably be expected to break records in terms of being emotionally depressing. And, of course, as a Christian, my main concern was whether or not Katie had accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of her life. Although I had been told she was a Christian ... I wasn't entirely confident that was the case.

I am now. Amazingly, it was one of the most uplifting services I've ever attended. I never fail to be astonished at the unique and surprising things that happen when the Presence of the Holy Spirit is in attendance - and He certainly was there. The atmosphere was electric with His Presence, from beginning to end.

The second reason the service was so positive was Katie herself. I knew she was extremely intelligent, perhaps brilliant. She was studying bio-chemistry. That any of the bio sciences could be comprehended by any mere mortal always wins my highest respect, that being my Waterloo. (I love quantum physics :-) I knew she was devoted to her grandparents. That was only the beginning.

The long parade of young people who came to the microphone to pay tribute to her was awe-inspiring, but the reason they loved Katie so much was what got my attention. She was apparently one of the best missionaries the church was blessed to have. She regularly brought people into the church from the highways and byways of the community, telling them of their need for Jesus Christ in their lives. Her witness extended to college, where she challenged her teachers about their beliefs and the state of their spiritual lives.

Oh, Katie had her youthful problems and her 'demons,' but she loved her Lord, so much that she told everyone about Him. She was progressing - moving in the right direction, impacting lives.

One trait almost every person mentioned in humor about her was that she was opinionated. And she was! But not in an obnoxious way. No, it was actually somehow endearing because it welled up from the core of her being, from those things that excited her. That's exactly how the Lord made her, and now we know why. She was excited about Jesus Christ. Who can say how many people heard the good news of the Gospel because of Katie?

The Holy Spirit worked in another way. I had been questioning in my mind whether or not Katie was really a Christian. Now, during the service, I began wondering if - in my entire life - I had been as effective a witness as Katie had been. God has a way of turning the tables on us for our own introspection.

Evidently the Lord only needed Katie here for 24 years. Evidently she did more for Him in those 24 years than most people do in three times that many years.

It's no wonder the Holy Spirit attended Katie's memorial service. Apparently she, too, was...

The United States IS In Bible Prophecy, Part 2

The world is made up of two types of people right now - 1) those who understand all of the occult symbolism that is literally everywhere in the U.S., in everything, and is shouting that we are welcoming Lucifer to rule the earth, and 2) those who have no clue. To understand the world we live in, we must understand the symbols surrounding us. These occult symbols are in company logos, sports events, movies, TV, the Olympics, just every place you look. Their origins go as far back as the Tower of Babel, and they have been passed down through all secret societies throughout history.

We cannot ignore them any longer. Too much is at stake. They reveal too much.

For years I have studied demonic activity, secret societies, Theosophy, Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, the Bavarian Illuminati and Western Occultism, along with prophecy, angels, ancient myths of Greece, Rome, Babylon. You name it. It's next to impossible to know where to start, but for the sake of the time element involved, I'm starting at the end. These secret societies have recruited the elite from the beginning; the philosophers, scientists, politicians, artists. Their religion is Luciferian. Yes, they worship Lucifer. They are believers, and they are welcoming the Antichrist. It is a centuries-old dream. The United States is the vehicle they chose in 1776 to bring this to pass.

History has always been on two tracks. One track is the plan of God, and the other track is the plan of Lucifer. Side by side. It has been no different in the U.S. The great advantage the secret societies have always had is secrecy. Many people do not want to know the facts. No one is forced to read this blog. However, if you are a truth seeker, you are in the right place. This is for those with eyes to see.'

We need to return to the side of the Great Seal of the U.S. that has the pyramid, which is one of the most important symbols of the Illuminati/Freemasons. (Let me say right here that 95% of the Freemasons have no idea; they are deliberately kept in the dark, and this is well-documented all throughout their history.) The pyramid is composed of thirteen layers. The number 13 is a sacred number to them and is constantly represented in various ways. The bottom 11 layers of the pyramid represent the lower degrees of Masonry while the top two (2) represent the Illuminati – the “hidden degrees”, the capstone of the pyramid. This is where the “Truth” is revealed and where the decisions are taken. The pyramid, representing secret societies operating on every continent, is ubiquitous around the entire world, in all of the capitols of the world, dominating it (overshadowing it) and owning it.

Triangles also represent the pyramid symbolism and is a universally recognized symbol of Illuminism in pop culture. The most significant symbol is the Eye within the triangle. Note also that the Masonic symbol of compass and square also form a triangle. (There is however no need to keep this conspiracy hidden; the masses are too uninformed to understand what is happening. They visit and drive around monuments that celebrate the imminent arrival of an Illuminati-lead Lucifer-worshipping New World Order, but still deny its existence. While the elite laugh.)

The US Capitol is the spiritual center of the United States. Its structure, its art and its symbols all reveal the great plan of the ages and is a sacred temple to Freemasonry and the secret societies. The Capitol was the creation of a succession of architects who were almost all Freemasons. Originally designed by William Thornton (1759-1828), the work was completed by Brother Benjamin Latrobe (a pupil of the English architect Samuel Pepys Cockerell, 1754-1827) who also redesigned it after the War of 1812. The flanking wings and the great dome were added later by Brother Thomas Ustick Walter.-phoenixmasonry.org

The cornerstone of the Capitol Building was laid with Masonic Honors on September 18, 1793, under the auspices of the Grand Lodge of Maryland. At the ceremony President George Washington presided in full Masonic attire. Washington, D.C. was carefully laid out in accordance to ancient occult principles. The Capitol is a vital part of the design by its location and its shape. The Capitol’s most important feature is its massive dome which carries heavy symbolic meaning. This dome faces the Washington Monument, the 555.5 foot tall (6666 inches) replica of an Egyptian obelisk. This layout is a mirror image of St.Peter’s Square in the Vatican, where an obelisk faces a giant dome, both important symbols of rebirth found in all the capitols of the world.

The dome has been associated with the female principle, the womb, the matrix. Opposed to it is the obelisk, the ancient Egyptian phallic symbol representing the male principle. The union of those two principles gives birth to a third entity, an offspring, that can be described as “spiritual energy”. This spiritual energy is not only symbolic. It is a palpable reality.

The dome of the Capitol features in its inner dome a painting that reveals the philosophical, spiritual and political aims of the Founding Fathers. The mystical meaning of this painting called “The Apotheosis” (elevation to godhood) signifies the exaltation and elevation to godhood, of George Washington, who is surrounded by figures of ancient paganism. It was painted by Constantino Brumidi, an Italian artist who became famous for his paintings commissioned by the Vatican and Pope Pius IX. There is much, much more.

We will proceed to the predictive date which is in the seal, which shows the 13-step pyramid, with the date 1776 engraved in the bottom step in Roman numerals. The year 1776 was also a special year in the Mayan calendar; it was the first 'katun' in the cycle of thirteen. Without going into a lot of mathematical detail, let me just refer you to a new book by Thomas Horn, a minister and researcher. The book is entitled "Apollyon Rising 2012." According to his findings, and quoting other people who arrived at the same conclusion, the top of the pyramid, which is predictive of the arrival of the god Lucifer, the year is 2012.

All that I can say is that is extremely fascinating. There is much, much more to all of this, which I won't - and probably couldn't - accurately put into words. For more on Thomas Horn, his website is: http://www.raidersnewsnetwork.com/. His book is available there, and he has many podcasts for those who are interested.

Well, now I know someone will ask what I think of this information about 2012? I find it absolutely riveting that numerous pagan religions, including the Mayans, all arrive at that date, and now it shows up on our dollar bill. What I believe is that this has great significance if you're a Luciferian. Which I'm not! My assumption is that this is the date they plan to welcome Lucifer to rule on earth. Whether they will succeed on that date or some other one I do not pretend to know.

One thing I do know. I see the signs of the last days upon us, and I am a student of prophecy. I believe it's possible, subject to God's purpose and plan. He is the one in charge of all of this. I find it highly ironic that the great deceiver, Satan, and his followers, will end up being the ones who are themselves deceived in all of this.

To me, all of this just confirms that the time is very near and confirms my belief that Christians need to be aware of what's going on and be about our Father's business. The time is short.

The United States IS In Bible Prophecy, Part 1

The U.S. is central to welcoming the Antichrist to earth. Come with me on a terrifying journey.

















You may have seen the symbols on the U.S. Dollar explained previously, but I can almost guarantee you have not seen some of the information you will see here, and in tomorrow's blog. Some of the occult explanations of the symbolism came from an Illuminati family member who left over 20 years ago and became a Christian. He now does lectures to warn Christians of what the Illuminati has planned for us in the very near future.

On the back side of the dollar bill you will see two seals with the word "One" between them. Look at the seal on the left side (picture above left, also). Directly above the capstone of the pyramid, is a Latin expression, "ANNUIT COEPTIS," and directly beneath the base of the pyramid is another expression in Latin, "NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM." These Latin expressions, when translated to English, mean "Announcing the Birth of a New World Order."

Next, we see the capstone separated from the pyramid, with an eye in the center. This is not the all-seeing eye of God. Since the capstone is facing upward, it means that Man is "invading the heavenlies." In occult mysticism, the three sides mean: Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet (a counterfeit of Father, Son and Holy Ghost).

As for the rest of the pyramid, it is made up of exactly 13 steps. These steps represent the Organizational Chart of the Illuminati. The first block in the first (bottom) level represents the "Council of Thirteen". This Council is comprised of the thirteen most powerful witches alive today.

The second block in the pyramid represents the "Council of 33." This Council consists of the 33 highest-ranking Masons in the entire world. The third block in the pyramid is known as the "Council of 500." The remainder of the blocks within the pyramid represent those of various orders and lodges governed by the Illuminati.

At the base of the pyramid, in Roman numerals, is MDCCLXXVI, which equals the year 1776. The MDCCLXXVI represents May 1, 1776, the founding date of the Illuminati, whose foundation is based on their evil god, Lucifer (Satan). In short, this first seal is telling us that on May 1, 1776, a 'New World Order' was created. The head of this order is Lucifer, and the intent is to govern over planet Earth.

Now, let's examine the second part of the seal, located on the right hand side of the back of the dollar bill (picture above right). Starting from the top, we see a cluster of 13 stars surrounded by 28 glowing guide lines. Thirteen (13), in Gematria, is the number for "depravity and rebellion,"and twenty-eight (28) is the number for "eternal life."

Continuing downward, we see another Latin expression on a banner, consisting of 13 letters, held in an eagle's beak, the Latin expression "E PLURIBUS UNUM" which, in translation, means "One out of Many." The Illuminati was formed out of many groups, and out of them the finest members with the best potential were moved up (One group out of many groups).

We next consider the eagle, which is actually a mythical bird known as the Phoenix. In Egyptian mythology, the Phoenix was a legendary bird that lived five or six centuries and was, in the end, consumed in fire by its own act. Later, it resurrected itself from its own ashes, giving itself a new life. This is based entirely upon the ancient Egyptian and Babylonian mystery schools of Satan worship. Just as the Phoenix bird reportedly resurrected itself from the ashes, so did the Illuminati resurrect itself from hiding. Also, take note that the phoenix is looking toward the right side of the currency, which is your left. Since this bird is looking toward the right, it looks on in favor of this 'New World Order.'

On the breast of the eagle is a shield of protection. If you look at the top of it, you will notice 12 horizontal lines above 18 vertical lines.Twelve (12), again in Gematria, is the number for a perfect government and eighteen (18) is the number for bondage. Those 18 lines are also set up in a very interesting pattern. There are six (6) sets of lines, and each set contains three lines, or three sixes (666). These six (6) sets are placed upon a white field and the white field is broken into seven (7) sections. We now have six (6) sets of dark lines upon a field of white. Six (6) is the number of Man and seven (7) is the number of God. The system is going to place Man above God.

At the end of the eagle's two legs are eight (8) talons, clutching an olive branch, consisting of 13 berries with 13 leaves plus a cluster of 13 arrows. The olive branch is symbolic of peace and the berries are the fruit of that peace. The 13 arrows are symbolic of war and military strength. The talons or claws of this bird number eight (8). Eight (8) is the number for new creations.

The talons of the bird are clenched, indicating that this new government will take over the old one by force. The new government, of course, will be run by the Illuminati. Underneath the shield are nine (9) tail feathers, used for guidance and control. Nine (9) is the number of finality, and coupled with the meaning of the tail feathers, this signifies that with guidance and control, this new government has finally arrived. It signifies completion.What this second seal is saying, in light of the first seal, is that an old system is going to rise up and take over this new government by force, through the use of demonic control and influence.

In order to fully understand this next point you would need some background in satanic witchcraft. I prefer not to go into detail in that area, so suffice it to say that the seemingly harmless cluster of five pointed stars, in deeply occult symbols, is configured in such a way that it forms the most evil of all occult symbols, a demon trap, indicating that the eagle, representing this newly-founded government as being crowned with demonic control. The Hexagon within the demon trap signifies six (6).

When you connect and align all the 13's on the seal the result is a second demon trap (just as the 28 guide lines around the stars form a circle) with its Hexagon, forming a second six (6).

When you connect the pyramid with the thirteen's, you will have yet a third Hexagram. It has a "demon trap" around it, too, making three complete Hexagrams, each having six sides, or 666, the mark of the beast.

This information is widely available. Doc Marquis, an ex-Illuminati, now a born-again Christian for over 20 years, goes into great detail on this in his books and videos.

So, every new dollar bill coming off the press carries the two seals of the Illuminati. Not only does the Illuminati have its own official seal, but its design equates with the number of the beast (666) as found in the Holy Scriptures. Oh, and one more thing. Within the hexagrams, the word "Mason" is spelled out.

This is all too brilliantly put together to be anything other than demonically inspired by Satan.

This is the shortest, most concise account of this that I could get down on paper. Many books could be - and have been - written about this. A number of people have come out of the Illuminati and become Christians. Most of them died untimely deaths. They are some of many who have written about all this. I recommend http://www.cuttingedge.com/ website, which has been in business for about 15 years and is run by Christian ministers. I also recommend Doc Marquis, who has a number of videos on YouTube located at:
http://www.youtube.com/results?search_qyert=Doc+Marquis&search_type=&aq=f.

You may not believe it. Deny it if you will. That will not alter the facts one bit. Our dollar bill is literally teeming with highly advanced occult symbols which the designers believed and which were intended as a signal to Lucifer and all of his worshippers. Time is too short to live in a fantasy world.

We need to face the truth of our situation so that we can be doing the one thing that the Bible tells us to do in the last days. Stand firm. Win souls. If we fail in our duty as Christians it could mean that some lost souls will never learn the good news of the gospel.

That's not all the dollar bill reveals. It also reveals a date which they believe the '666 Government' will be installed. Stay tuned. I certainly do not believe in predicting dates concerning Jesus' second coming. However, we may learn some things from dates the Luciferians believe are significant.

Will Heaven Be Boring?

Most people seem to think that eternity in heaven consists of flying around and playing harps. It's hard to think of anything more boring than that. Fortunately, that idea of heaven has nothing whatever to do with reality.

Life in heaven will be infinitely more fascinating than life on earth. It will be...well, heaven!

The primary reason it won't be boring is that God is not boring. Anyone who could create the entire universe has to be the most interesting person one could imagine. He is the source of exhilaration, humor, sex, taste buds, art, music, math, science, everything that brings us joy and interest. We all have infinite questions about God. All those questions will be answered, and many more that haven't even entered our minds. Everyone has different interests, but as for me, the first thing I want to do is find out if classes are being held. I want to learn everything. I want to sit down with the patriarchs and apostles and ask them questions.

Another reason heaven won't be boring is because we ourselves will be far more interesting than we are now. We are the equivalent of a fetus before it is transformed into a mature person. We are stuck in a three-dimensional world right now. In heaven there will be more dimensions and we will have bodies equipped for that. Listen to Philippians 3:20-21:

"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself."

Your friends in heaven will not be boring. Hebrews 12:22-23 says: "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect..."

Everyone worth knowing will be there. Jesus himself, of course, will be the first and most amazing friend. Then all of your Christian relatives - you'll be able to get acquainted with all of your Christian ancestors who you've never met. Then all of your Christian friends will be there, along with all of the Old and New Testament saints, and all of the angels! Everything will be alive with meaning, significance and creativity. Everything will be true, sincere, right, just, perfect.

There will be unlimited opportunity to meet and fellowship with whoever you want. You will form new friendships with people throughout eternity, people in our own time and age that we haven't had the opportunity to meet. All of the great Christian theologians and philosophers will be there, people like Francis Schaeffer, Andrew Murray, Spurgeon, Tozer, C.S. Lewis, Martin Luther, Polycarp. The list could go on and on.

Your activities won't be boring. You will become the 'you' God created you for, fulfilling dreams you haven't even thought of yet, always learning new skills, never experiencing wear, toil, fatigue or illness. We will experience the fullest expression of our deepest desires, serving the Most High throughout the universe.

Heaven is the place you've always longed for. Human beings have a deep desire and longing for "something" they can't express. This is why people who achieve earthly riches or fame are never satisfied when they 'arrive,' but ask, "Is that all there is?" The things of earth can never fully satisfy. Our souls and spirits point us toward eternal life. Nothing on earth can satisfy this yearning. We were created for another world. Romans 8:22-23 says:

"For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body."

God has set eternity in the heart of man, and what he sets in the heart he will fulfill and bring about.

Make sure you have your ticket.

The Atheist: A Fool And A Tool

"The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." Psalm 14:1. The Bible refers only this one time to the atheist (and it is repeated in Psalm 53:1).

By virtue of his stubborn heart, he has been made a tool of Satan.

God's Word spends no time in proving the existence of God. The Bible opens in Genesis 1:1 with: "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth," and states it in a different way in John 1:1. Other than that bare statement the Bible does not argue for God's existence, does not debate the matter and doesn't deal with any possibility of the non-existence of God.

It is assumed - and so stated - that only a fool would fail to recognize such an obvious truth. Since the world in this age attacks God at every opportunity, the conclusion we must come to is that our world is full of fools. As God's World so clearly states, the last days will be overrun by deception and spiritual blindness.

"Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind, And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit." Matthew 15:14.

"And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."

God ignores any type of argument with a fool. A fool, by definition, cannot see truth. God dismisses him with one sentence, and so should we. It's a waste of time to 'cast our pearls before swine.'

The beautiful truth, however, is that each of us has the choice between life with no purpose or meaning ... or life in the light of the truth - and eternal life, at that. "...I have set before you life and death...: therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live." Deut. 30:19.

"'Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'" Rev. 3:20-22.

"This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life." 1 John 2:25.

He has given each person the opportunity to choose:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16.

"...that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation... for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." Romans 10:9-10, 13

As long as you're breathing, he invites you to accept Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross as redemption for your sinful state.

Don't be a fool. Choose life.

Are You Ready For Persecution?

Christians haven't been popular of late, even in their own churches. That's where it starts.

Persecution begins in the house of God (as does judgment) when the church begins to become infiltrated from the top down. This first step has been going on for many years. False teaching begins in the churches as apostate seminaries produce false prophets who become ministers in the churches. This goes on until the Christian doctrine disappears from the pulpit, then filters down through the Christian education program, bit by bit, until it is no longer politically correct to speak of Bible truth. We have just about completed this process, which I have been watching for years.

This preliminary process of winnowing out genuine Christians (the trouble makers) continues until there is no difference between the church and the culture. The church is just one more social club. Meanwhile, true Christians find themselves in the situation of 'a man without a country'. They are despised and rejected in their own churches because they refuse to give up biblical teachings and doctrine. The truth sounds too harsh. I have experienced it myself on a number of issues and occasions.

First, let me clarify that the church is called to be separate from the world ... to be set apart, by virtue (excuse the term) of our spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. Our lives should be victorious, abundant and loving. This difference will be obvious, and it will serve as a light in a dark world. The lights are mighty dim these days because, once again, the majority of people who call themselves Christian, are not. Therefore, they are not separate, but are a part of the world. They are not lights; they are not different in any way. I can back this up with scripture.

A Christian's relationship with the world, and with other Christians, will be kind and full of genuine love and concern. That is the primary feature which will be noticeable to non-Christians. This supernatural love is what sets apart - separates - identifies, the Christian. Love is a supernatural representation of the changed life that a relationship with Jesus brings to our lives. It is the mark of the Christian.

It is very confusing to the non-Christian when the majority of people who call themselves Christians, aren't. And this confusion puts the genuine Christian at a great disadvantage in trying to spread the good news of the gospel, because most non-Christians are not interested in the kind of 'religion' they see exhibited all around them by phony Christians - in name only. They're right. I have heard missionaries say that they think this kind of persecution is worse than physical persecution. This was an overwhelming comfort to me.

Because of this hypocrisy the non-Christian sees (and sometimes it just an excuse), one can understand their resentment. I understand it completely. Still, there does remain a segment of the church which remains true to the gospel. That segment will be the target of persecution, to the point that spies will be sent into churches to scope it out. This can't happen until laws are passed which do not allow parts of the Bible to be preached or taught, which has happened. This will only be a problem for genuine Christians because the Christianettes have no interest in Bible truth. They are already a part of the world rather than of Christ's Church.

This persecution is now beginning. Without going into detail, I will cite a few examples of what to expect.

* "Mystery worshippers" - non-Christians sent into the church to identify and to 'set up' Christians who preach and teach the gospel.

* Media silence when violence takes place against Christians, as in the case of the two street preachers who were recently gunned down in Boynton Beach, Florida, by a young man who didn't like their message. Not a single news outlet reported this story.

* Work place refusal to exempt Christians of aspects of their jobs which their consciences prevent them from performing.

* Insistence that parents subject their children as young as ten years old to school curricula which teaches ideas that are directly opposed to their moral values.

* An increasing lack of diligence in pursuing crimes against Christians, such as the 11 churches in Texas which were recently torched, and the 90 houses of worship set on fire last year nationwide.

While I can't legitimately put this in the above list, because it would be mere speculation, stories such as the one involving 10 missionaries in Haiti make me immediately suspicious. Is this a great opportunity to label Christians as criminals, is it a case of naivete and ignorance on the part of the 10 people, or is it true criminal behavior? I don't have a clue, but this case is ripe for a persecution agenda. Only time will tell.

The battle is heating up, and this is just the beginning. It will get much worse, and quickly. A Christian needs to know exactly what price he is willing to pay for his relationship with Jesus Christ.

He died for us. We may be called upon to return the commitment.

Ancient Prophets Predict Messiah in 2012

13th Century Rabbis and late 14th Century St.Malachy Predict Similar Prophecies.

Dr. J.R. Church, a renowned prophecy scholar, recently reported that 13th century orthodox Jewish rabbis prophesied in the Zohar - widely regarded as the most important work of the Jewish Kabbalah - had predicted the arrival of their Messiah in the year 2012.

In the Zohar, a rabbi named Simeon said: "When the 60th year shall have passed over the threshold of the 6th millennium, the God of heaven will visit the daughter of Jacob [Israel] with a preliminary remembrance. Another 6-1/2 years will then elapse, and there will be a full remembrance of her …" This 60th year of the Jewish calendar, says J.R., passed over the "threshold of the 6th millennium" in the year 2000. It was the Jewish year 5760.

There is no indication saying what this preliminary remembrance is, but it is not the final arrival of the Messiah to establish the kingdom. It is also very important to remember that the "Messiah" that Israel will accept at first will be the Antichrist. A few years later they will realize their mistake and will then recognize Jesus Christ as their true Messiah at the Second Coming.

The prophecy goes on to say that the following 6-1/2 years will conclude with a "full remembrance" and "then all the nations shall combine together against the daughter of Jacob in order to drive her from the world.... it is a time of trouble unto Jacob, but out of it he shall be saved" (Jeremiah 30:7).

The Zohar also says that Rome will be destroyed in the Jewish calendar year 5773, which, in our calendar begins with the new moon of September 2012 and ends in 2013. The quote reads: "In the year seventy-three [2012 / 2013] the kings of the world will assemble in the great city of Rome, and the Holy One will shower on them fire and hail and meteoric stones until they are all destroyed, with the exception of those who will not yet have arrived there."

Also interesting is the prophecy of "St. Malachy" as he is known to Catholics. He predicted each of the Roman Catholic popes from Pope Celestine II to the final pope, "Peter the Roman," whose reign would end with the destruction of Rome. According to Malachy, the pope after Benedict the 16th (the current pope) will be the final pontiff, Petrus Romanus, or "Peter the Roman." He will assume authority during a time of great tribulation, after which Rome will be destroyed, and "the terrible and fearsome Judge will judge his people."

It is fascinating that both the 700-year old Zohar prophecies and the 870-year old prophecies of St. Malachy relate to the exact same time frame: 2012, with very similar predictions of the rise of a "Messiah" combined with the destruction of Rome.

It is important to remember that while other prophecies are interesting, the only true and reliable prophecies come from the Bible, God's own Word.

I listen to J.R. Church every weekday, where he posts a short podcast (5-10 minutes) each day. It's always very fascinating. His website is: http://www.prophecyinthenews.com/.

I, too, am an avid student of prophecy and hope to start a new website soon that will focus on prophecy and related subjects of interest. I'll let you know when that happens; hopefully soon.

Spiritual Wickedness In High Places, by Chuck Baldwin

This article by Chuck Baldwin is too important and too true to ignore. So I am posting it today with a link to his website at the bottom.

"Spiritual Wickedness In High Places" by Chuck Baldwin February 17, 2010

Almost immediately after Adam's fall, Lucifer and his minions collaborated with evil men to usurp God's authority and sovereignty. And nowhere is God more sovereign than in the heart and conscience of man. In the spirit world, the First Commandment ("Thou shalt have no other gods before me") is the battleground that is most fought over. The war for man's heart and soul is never-ending.

Nimrod was the first would-be tyrant to try and bring the world into a global "New World Order." His handiwork produced the Tower of Babel, which brought about a cataclysmic judgment from Jehovah. However, while Nimrod was the first globalist to try and unify the nations against God, he was certainly not the last. The Pharaohs, Darius, Artaxerxes, Cyrus, Alexander, Nebuchadnezzar, the Caesars, and hundreds like them have all brought their tyrannical rule over the hearts of men. And their ideas and passions are as alive and active in the world today as ever.

With every would-be world tyrant, there is one constant: the unholy marriage between a supranational government and Big Religion. If Jehovah God made anything clear in the Mosaic model of government, it was the fact that--until Christ Himself comes to occupy both offices--the offices of Priest and King were to be eternally separate. At least one Old Testament Jewish king learned that lesson the hard way.

Yet, Big Government and Big Religion have always come together for the purpose of enslaving the masses. The devilish duo of Big Government and Big Religion killed the Old Testament prophets. They hung Jesus on the cross and persecuted the early Church. They murdered masses during the Dark Ages; they managed the Holocaust; and their obnoxious offspring are still at work today. This criminal cabal has been the bane of genuine faith and personal liberty since the beginning of time.

When Colonial America fired that shot heard around the world and fought their way to independence, they broke free, not only from the political domination of the Crown, but also from the religious domination of a State Church. No longer would citizens be required to join a particular church in order to hold public office. No longer would citizens be required to financially support churches and institutions they deemed to be offensive to their spiritual convictions. No longer could a religious institution use the power and force of civil government to subjugate men to its tenets and, yes, tentacles. Indeed, the apostate kingdom created by Constantine's spiritual whoredom ended at the eastern shore of America!

And dare I say that I am proud of my Anabaptist forebears for helping to embed the principle of religious liberty into American law and jurisprudence? Indeed, I am! What many Americans do not know (and what many militant secularists refuse to acknowledge) is that it was the influence of the Colonial Baptists--most notably, the Baptist minister John Leland--that was most responsible for the First Amendment being added to the US Constitution.

Therefore, it is more than disturbing when I see evangelical Christians being seduced by the ancient Big Government/Big Religion whorish union today. How can any true Gospel preacher accept federal Faith-Based Initiative monies, except that he has either lost all understanding of what freedom truly means, or is willing to sacrifice the sacred principles of liberty upon the altar of his own selfish interests? How can any true Gospel preacher not realize that Big Religion has always conspired with tyrannical governmental forces against the true Gospel message? Why are they so blind to these devilish conspiracies? At the highest levels of virtually every major religion, the conspiracy to hijack truth and enslave the masses is constantly at work, whether it is Catholicism, Judaism, or Protestantism.

This is what the Apostle Paul warned about in Ephesians 6:12. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Of course, the "rulers of the darkness of this world" are demonic. But it is also an absolute certainty that these demonic forces accomplish their devilish deeds through evil men who are given to "spiritual wickedness in high places."

Was not the spiritual netherworld complicit in helping to construct Nimrod's Tower of Babel? Was not spiritual wickedness at work when Pharaoh murdered the little children of the Hebrews? Were not dark principalities at work when Nebuchadnezzar ordered everyone to bow to the image of the Babylonian leader? When the Lord Jesus called Jewish King Herod a "fox," was not He acknowledging Herod's complicity with evil? Were not spiritual powers aiding and abetting the Jewish Sanhedrin when they moved the crowd to crucify the Son of God? When the early Church was being persecuted, was not spiritual wickedness at work? When nonconforming Christians were thrown to the lions and sawn asunder, were not their tormentors influenced by these same rulers of darkness? Of course they were!

Then, why is it so difficult for modern Christians--especially our pastors and preachers--to understand that this unholy union of Big Government and Big Religion is as evil and sinful today as it ever was? Why are they unwilling to recognize that the same devilish system that plagued the Church throughout the ages--suspended only temporarily by the successful revolution for American independence--is rearing its ugly head again? Why are they unwilling to believe that many of America's leaders (from both parties) routinely give themselves to luciferian rituals, such as those annual dances around the fire at the Bohemian Grove? Why is it so hard to believe that we have leaders (from both parties) who have given themselves to dark, secret societies, such as Skull and Bones? Why are they not suspicious when certain religious schools and institutions repeatedly produce many of the leaders (from both parties) who seem to universally take America down the same path of globalism?

As most Christians should know, The Beast of Revelation is as much a SYSTEM as it is a person. As the Apostle John warned, the "spirit of antichrist . . . even now already is it in the world." (I John 4:3) He also warned, "Even now are there many antichrists." (I John 2:18) Any Big Government/Big Religion system that seeks to bring nations into global unity, enshrine a politically correct theology of universalism, establish Church/State uniformity, and marginalize independent, nonconformist ideology is nothing more than the emergence of another Tower of Babel or Beast-like system! And, dear Christian friend, has it occurred to you that our central government in Washington, D.C., is currently engaged in all of the above?

Both political parties--including most of our national leaders and news media--actively promote globalism; universalism is, without a doubt, the unofficial--but clearly understood--national religion; and anyone who holds nonconformist views (i.e., pro-life, Jesus-only theology, anti-UN, anti-illegal immigration, questioning official government explanations of national tragedies, etc.) is being viciously ridiculed, impugned, and marginalized by virtually everyone in the national press corps and central government. Yes, I am saying it, THE BEAST IS EMERGING IN WASHINGTON, D.C.!

The powers that be in both Big Government and Big Religion want to control both our hearts and our minds. They cannot tolerate dissent. Mind you: they do not care if one is Republican or Democrat, because at the national level, both major parties are marching in the same beastly direction. They do not care if one is conservative or liberal, because the leaders of both camps are, likewise, marching in lockstep to the tune being played by The Beast. They do not care if one is Jewish, Catholic, or Protestant, because at the highest levels, these religions are committing whoredom with The Beast.

If a pastor or preacher is going to be true to his calling today, he must be willing to adopt the philosophy of the late, great Charles Haddon Spurgeon, who said, "The more prominent you are in Christ's service, the more certain are you to be the butt of calumny [slander]. I have long ago said farewell to my character. I lost it in the earlier days of my ministry by being a little more zealous than suited a slumbering age. And I have never been able to regain it except in the sight of Him who judges all the earth, and in the hearts of those who love me for my work's sake."
Any desire for promotion, pleasure, riches, or fame will quickly make one a servant of The Beast. And, I'm afraid, that is exactly what many of today's pastors and preachers have become.
The fight for independence was as much for the freedom of the heart and mind as it was for the freedom of a State or nation. In fact, one cannot enslave the latter until he first enslaves the former. And this is what is currently at stake: the freedom of the heart and soul to be governed by God and no other! And this battle will never be won--at least not nationally--as long as Christians and pastors are unwilling to recognize the enemy for what it is: "spiritual wickedness in high places."

Beware of Spiritual Deception

I was recently researching a subject and came across a website with tons of information, so I began reading. The writer was beautifully articulate and I was enjoying my find. He had many links embedded in the article, so I began to click on links as I went.

Very shortly I came upon a severe doctrinal error. I couldn't believe my eyes, so I thought: "Well, he's off on this one point." I kept reading.

Soon I ran into another, and then another error, so I started thinking to myself, "Well, this guy is a theosophist...(new age religion)...or worse. I tried to find something stating his name, his affiliations, or something that would give me a clue. Nothing.

I went back to the Home Page and discovered that he recommended three particular books "to help the reader" understand where he was coming from. All three books were by the same author, a heretic. I couldn't read any more because he was just too mixed up. I think perhaps he was onto his own new religion.

I was highly disappointed because he was a skillful writer. It served to point out how alert and careful we must be when reading the works of people who call themselves Christian, which he did.

Unless a person is extremely well-versed in the Bible, it is very dangerous to just go reading willy-nilly these days. There are very many more people who have erroneous beliefs than there are those who are doctrinally correct.

The point which ended my reading session on his site was when he began mixing God, the creator of all things, with idol gods. There are many gods, but only one God.

"To you it was shown that you might know that the LORD, He is God; there is no other besides Him....Know therefore today, and take it to your heart, that the LORD, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other." Deut 4:35,39

"I am the LORD, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God." Isaiah 45:5

"Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me..." Isaiah 46:9

"'Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.'" Isaiah 44:8

"For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him." 1 Cor 8:5,6

A Christian needs to be certain he spends more time in God's Word - the Bible - than in any other book. That is your armor that enables you to spot error the minute you see it.

This experience was another example of brilliantly conceived and executed deception by the adversary.

I guess that's what they mean when they say: "Give the devil his due."

The Apostasy of Liberal Theologians

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths." 2 Timothy 4:3,4.

The liberal theologian has done more to damage Christianity than all the atheists in the world. Why? Because he is disguised as a preacher or teacher of God's Word. He is a wolf in sheep's clothing, an interloper, a liar, misrepresenting himself as something he is not. He does massive harm as the pastor of a church, but even more damage if he is a seminary professor since he is in charge of many who will be pastors of churches.

These tools of Satan have caused one seminary after another, one denomination after another, one mission field after another, to fall into apostasy. This is why there is such massive spiritual blindness in these last days. They have not fed the sheep. They have caused the sheep to be led astray, down wrong paths. They are false prophets. God's wrath will fall more heavily on them.

They are not Christians, yet they pass themselves off as though they were. They do not believe in God's Word, the virgin birth, Jesus Christ, His divinity, His redemptive death or His resurrection. They are puffed up and see themselves as great philosophical thinkers. They are purveyors of a religion of their own invention, with Satan's help. They are interlopers.

To add insult to injury, you almost never hear Christian leaders raise a word in protest of this evil. By their silence they aid and abet, when they should be warning the sheep about these infidels. The people with the loudest voices on this issue seem to be lay people.

W. A. Criswell says that the famous infidel Robert Ingersoll was once asked why he had stopped lecturing against God and the Bible. He replied: "Divinity professors and preachers are doing it better than I. There is no need for me."
That says it all.

Faith Is So Simple

God is great, God is good,
And we thank Him for this food.


That's the prayer my parents taught me when I was a little girl, so that I could participate in prayer when we sat down at the table to eat. As soon as I began to talk they taught me to pray - to develop a relationship with God.

Never once did I question that God was there, listening to me. It was a simple childish relationship, just as all children have with everyone. It was all about me when I was very little, I suppose, whether it was the relationship with God, parents or my brother. When I began to talk, it was about what I wanted from them.

I'm certain that changed rather quickly, knowing all four of those individuals as I now do. None of them were interested in a one-way relationship. As all young children should be, I was soon taught that relationships were two-way ... not one-way. They were reciprocal.

I learned that they loved me and that I could trust them. What I had to learn as a wee one was how to really love them and how to be someone they could trust. That is called training. And I certainly had it. Tiny tots are usually selfish. That's human nature (our sin nature), and my parents did a wonderful job of teaching me these things.

It was all very simple. I learned right from wrong, and I learned the Bible. I knew that was our guidebook. We read it every day, we memorized scripture verses, I heard many Bible stories and we learned that we needed to obey God's Word in order to have a good relationship with Him and with each other. It's all so simple - so basic, and yet I see that very few people are taking these simple steps to an abundant and fulfilling life these days. I don't need to visit their homes to discern this because it's so obvious in the behaviors of the parents and the children.

Very quickly, I learned that I didn't always want to do the right thing. My parents explained the sin nature, where it came from and that we all had that problem. But there was a solution, and God himself provided that. I knew from my own tiny behavior that my 'ME' wanted to do things that were wrong ... and I knew they were wrong. I was truly sorry; in fact, it grieved me that I did something that hurt someone else. I had a very tender heart.

By the time I was six years old, on my knees, I told the Lord about it (I repented), and I asked Him to forgive me and to come into my heart and change me, because I couldn't do it by myself. This is how very simple it is to become a Christian.

Now, there was a time in my late teens and my twenties that I neglected this relationship with God, and I stopped reading the Bible, even going to church. I found that the ME had an overwhelming desire to do things MY way. I knew the Lord still loved me, and I loved Him, but not enough to be obedient all the time. Over those years this neglect of my relationship with the Lord resulted in a heap of trouble for me. Nothing was going right.

One day when I was driving down El Dorado Street in Stockton, I glanced over at the large billboard in front of First Baptist Church. I was overcome with grief. I was overwrought with sorrow that I had done such damage to my relationship with God and to my own self. At the same time I was angry because I didn't think God had spoken loudly enough to me over those years, essentially trying to place a portion of the blame on him - just as Adam tried to partially blame God for giving him Eve, who gave him the 'apple.' As I was driving, my eyes full of tears, I spoke to God and let it all out.

It was not a model prayer. I was frankly surprised that He even answered it. But He knew my heart...my motives...my desires. He also knew that I was spiritually immature. He considered all that and still, He answered it. From that moment in time, my life changed radically. It was as if I had been heading north, and after that conversation, I turned and went south. And kept going south from then on. Everything changed over time: my habits, my interests, my desires, my goals. Everything.

That was many years ago. I seldom give it any thought at all, but occasionally something happens that reminds me. Yesterday our washing machine died. Well, you can't go too long without that particular appliance, so I began to think about what we might do without going out and spending $500-600 on a new one.

Frankly, I can't say whether I made any kind of a 'formal' prayer request to the Lord about this, because our conversations are so on-going during any given day, and actually I don't really make that many personal requests. I already know He knows. My husband had to make a trip to town due to serious illness of his uncle who was in the hospital, and I knew he would be gone most of the day. Around 1 PM the phone rang. It was him - calling to tell me that his cousin had an almost new machine that we could have. Who has an extra almost-new washing machine sitting around?!

When we hung up, I laughed out loud, "Thank you so much, Lord." There have been so many, many things like this that have happened in our lives which are too timely and too unusual for coincidence. Besides, I have a practice of thanking the Lord for almost everything, all the time. It is He who has provided and guided our lives. He does have a sense of irony and humor. After all, we were created 'in His image,' so we shouldn't be at all surprised that the qualities we have are the very same ones that He has.

The incident made me stop and think about the many things just like this that have happened so often in our lives. I remember all the times that the Lord had provided in the same way for my parents. Some of these had really been miraculous.

Oh, yes, I've studied the Bible scrupulously. I never stop wanting to find out more about how He works, what He thinks, how He operates. I want to know everything about Him.

Nevertheless, the relationship is simple. It's comfortable. It's reliable. It's surprising, even humorous or ironic at times. He's truly my closest and dearest Friend. It's the most important relationship I've ever had. It's tried and true. Friends and relatives may come and go, but He's the One that will be with me through eternity. Jesus Christ loved me so much He died for me. And you.

It's such a simple faith. And so critically important.

God is great. Good is good,
And we thank you for the...washing machine.

The Eloquence of The Silent Sermon

I received this in an email. It was too good not to share.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A member of a certain church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going. After a few weeks, the pastor decided to visit him.

It was a chilly evening. The pastor found the man at home alone, sitting before a blazing fire. Guessing the reason for his pastor's visit, the man welcomed him, led him to a comfortable chair near the fireplace and waited.

The pastor made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the dance of the flames around the burning logs. After some minutes, the pastor took the fire tongs, carefully picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the hearth - all by itself - then he sat back in his chair, still silent.

The host watched all this in quiet contemplation. As the one lone ember's flame flickered and diminished, there was a momentary glow and then its fire was no more. Soon it was cold and dead.

Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting. The pastor glanced at his watch and realized it was time to leave. He slowly stood up, picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the middle of the fire. Immediately it began to glow, once more with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it.

As the pastor reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear running down his cheek, 'Thank you so much for your visit and especially for the fiery sermon. I will be back in church next Sunday.'

We live in a world today which tries to say too much with too little. Consequently, few listen. Sometimes the best sermons are the ones left unspoken.

All The King's Horses & All The King's Men

...can't put the United States together again. Or the rest of the world for that matter. Since I am an accountant I thought I might just touch on finance today.

The world is slipping into total insolvency and deflationary depression. We are bankrupt (in more ways than one), and so is the rest of the world. When the powers that be decide that it's time for the ax to fall, it will. All of this is planned and running on schedule. Only gold and silver will survive.

It is imperative to 'level' the U.S. in order to bring it down to the rest of the world. When things seem as though they can't get any worse the Antichrist will have all of the answers, and the majority of the people of the world will think he is wonderful.

How would you like for an announcement to come, saying that all debts will be forgiven? Your home, second mortgage, car, credit cards, everything. Paid in full. Whatever happens, it will be dramatic. Of course, there is just one little thing (at first). We will need to use a new world currency, and a nifty new system where we won't even need to write a check or use a credit or debit card. No need to bother with all that. It will be so much easier when we just pass by a scanner and show our forehead, or hand, if you prefer.

Will that sound too good to resist?

We aren't the only ones in trouble. Nearly every country in the world is in financial trouble. Forty of our states are on the verge of going bankrupt. Our president wants to double financial aid for a failed education system. Governmental debt is growing at a rate of more than 20%. Then we can pencil in the bailout programs and the bankruptcy of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae, FHA, AIG and GM. The 19 major banks are still insolvent.

The turning point for the dollar was in 1971 when we went off the gold standard. Then we went with de-industrialization, free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. We tore the industry out of our economy and sent our companies and employment overseas. This resulted in the huge international corporations beginning their tax-free enrichment at our expense, and here we are. Soon it became impossible for a family to live on one income, or so our lack of values dictated. There went the home, the children, the family. It made the dumbing-down of our children as simple as pie. No one was looking.

Financial greed on every side ruined our culture and enabled government, Wall Street and the corporate world to coalesce into what is known as Fascism. And all the time we were thinking we were free citizens. The fact is that we live in a police state already. There is so much going on, but people are too busy - and more likely too brainwashed - to notice. They're either good Republicans watching Fox News or good Democrats watching NBC. It never occurs to them that that, too, is by design. We rally and cheer for our 'side' while the rest of the world laughs at our stupendous naivete. No one reads in this country, and the result is that 90% of the citizens know next to nothing about the truth of the matter.

Just as the Bible prophecied, the deceptions will fool almost everyone. That prophecy is coming true as I write.

Are you aware that the absolute most important thing the powers are attempting to goad you into is war. They want riots, anything that will give them a reason to exercise martial law. Civil disobedience is crucial to the plan. They keep trying.

Home values have dropped over 50%, our leaders are brazen tax cheats, liars and worse. Ten banks control 75% of all deposits, and they're broke. Over 2,000 banks are currently in trouble. Government and congress are openly looting everything we have, while at the same time they are dead set on spending trillions more of money that will be gotten by printing it, and inflating the debt away.

I wouldn't be in municipal bonds right now. Cities, and soon counties, will be absolutely unable to pay. We're being gamed. Oil will rise again, as will commodities, including food. It really doesn't matter who you vote for. At this point they all take orders from the same people ... so does the President. They are all bought and paid for, even the ones you love to listen to for the 'news' they give you. Polls, polls, polls are not to find out what you think, but to make you think like what the polls say everyone else is thinking. One more clever propaganda tool.

Get it yet? Ever hear of 'thesis, antithesis, synthesis?' That's the name of the Game. The controllers have higher ranks than any of our government people, who at this point are now just stooges for the real rulers of the planet.

It won't be that long now until things deteriorate into such a state that you'll welcome the new system with open arms. Those who are still deceived now are not likely to see the truth then.

All the king's horses and all the king's men can't put us back together again.

There's only one King who will be of help from here on out.

Why Lies Are Believed, And Truth Isn't

I once believed that huge conspiracies could not possibly be true because three people can't stick to the same story, let alone huge governments.

I was wrong. There was one factor I had left out of the equation, and that factor was Satan. The American people are suffering under massive deceptions and delusions because Satan (who more than half of the people do not believe in) is the ruler of this world. He is capable of controlling governments from beginning to end. It's such a huge story that it's almost impossible to know where to begin. So, I won't begin at all. I'll just address the 'why' people believe the lies.

People's personal identities and set of moral values allow them to become emotionally involved in a certain set of beliefs. They are always looking for information that supports those beliefs, while avoiding information that challenges those beliefs. They are not looking for facts. This is why they love certain commentators and certain TV channels; they support what they already believe.

Hitler outlined in Mein Kampf why big lies are ignored while small ones are believed: “In the simplicity of their minds, people more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have such impudence. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and continue to think that there may be some other explanation.”

I have noticed that people who know nothing whatever of the facts will, nevertheless, become angry and defensive when presented with actual facts by expert investigators. These people simply refuse to even hear the facts, let alone accept them, because that would mean changing their paradigm. Very few people have the education necessary to follow the technical and scientific aspects. The side that they believe tells them one story; the side that they don’t (want to) believe tells them another. They have no basis to judge the relative merits of the arguments, and they refuse to listen long enough to notice the gaping contradictions. They refuse to hear any evidence. They simply ignore it if it is outside their belief system.

I have seen many people who become enraged at any article that reports anything outside their belief system. People refer to the work as 'garbage' or worse and believe the information should be suppressed just because it is inconsistent with what they already believe. This happens even if they have no understanding of the material being presented. They are offended emotionally.

With all the information blatantly in front of us that the government lies, cheats and steals from us, still these people will defend and believe the government on certain issues. For reasons that escape me, they believe that the government that lies to them about everything else tells them the truth about those certain issues. They are emotionally involved, as if one or ten more lies would make any difference. Why not listen to the evidence of experts?

Sometimes I hear "well, if thus and so is true, how come no experts say it," when in fact the issue is littered with far more expert and credible facts than the side that is lying. "Who's spreading this garbage?" they'll ask, when all they 'know' is what they have heard from their favorite news commentator, who they absolutely idolize (because he agrees with their already held beliefs). It usually takes people with tremendous courage to speak out because these people's jobs, and even their lives, are at stake when they do, character traits that these doubters claim to greatly honor.

Anyone who does not tout the official line is automatically labeled a kook. The perpetrators of the BIG LIE know this and they love to use these kooks to ridicule the very idea of anything that threatens their big lie. Ridicule is the highest form of safety for the liars. It is their first - and most effective - tool. So when you hear your favorite commentator consistently ridicule something, always be suspicious that it is true.

The bottom line is that most people do not want to know the truth. I have just discovered this in recent years, and it has been an astonishing insight. This makes it laughably easy for the government to perpetuate a big lie.

Our system of government rests on the assumption that the people are intelligent, will examine all the facts and cannot be manipulated. Unfortunately that assumption has been, and continues to be, our downfall. The vast majority of people do not have the desire or ability to follow the truth no matter where it leads.

The reason all this is so crystal clear to me is that I was awakened to the fact that I was doing that very same thing a few years ago. Since that time I have followed the truth no matter where it took me. And it led me into stunning territory when I researched for the factual information. I discovered I was not living in the world I thought I was in. It's a lonely path.

It's much more dangerous to believe the lies. It is inevitable that the truth always shows up.

Ready or not.

Who Is Scott Brown?

You will recall that Scott Brown is the Massachusetts Republican senator who recently won the U.S. Senate seat and upset the U.S. Senate Democrats' 60-vote majority by winning Democrat Ted Kennedy's seat. You can hardly say that he ran as a Republican, though. He tried not to mention his party, which would be a definite negative in Massachusetts.

Now the Republicans are getting all revved up at the prospect of having his vote on their side. But I wouldn't get too excited if I were them! I wouldn't be surprised at all if he turns out to be rather comfortable in Kennedy's Democrat seat and with his voting record. If I were a Republican I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Scott Brown to vote anywhere near the Republican stated positions.

It seemed pretty obvious on election night that there was nothing conservative about Scott Brown or his family, even in demeanor. You can just tell. In fact I will be shocked if he isn't the 60th vote that finally passes the health 'reform' bill. So, if you're a conservative, don't get too excited.

There's no difference between the Democrats or Republicans except cosmetic ones to fool the people, and they've had stunning success at that. Both parties are completely committed to the new world order which is actually here in reality, just not in name - once again having both parties completely ignorant of this and still fighting each other as though we actually had two ideologies instead of the one actual ideology that is the reality.

Brown carefully portrayed himself as an independent and describes himself as fiscally conservative and socially conscious. As far as his fiscal views, he appears to support the establishment of a highly regulated economy, otherwise known as Fascism. His own words have already revealed this. The Bush administration had taken us far down this road already, and Obama will finish it.

Brown supported the Massachusetts health care bill which requires all residents to purchase health insurance. This is not a conservative position.

He has stated that Roe v. Wade is settled law and that he will not seek to overturn it. He said he would not use abortion as a litmus test in Supreme Court confirmations. He has, however, spoken out in favor of parental consent for minors, is against partial birth abortion and opposes federal funding for elective abortion. It is a curious and confusing position that he takes when you combine all aspects of abortion. We shall see.

He says that Massachusetts' currently legal same-sex marriage is settled law and that he doesn't wish to change it. He is going to be a huge disappointment to conservatives. We will have martial law in the streets before the American people will open their eyes and see the truth of what's going on.

The fact that the Massachusetts Republican Party allowed someone with the beliefs of Scott Brown to run on its ticket should tell you that he is supportive of the agendas of the global elite. This entire scenario is typical of the deceptions that are continually played on the gullible people of this nation ... or, excuse me, this 'neighborhood', as they openly refer to what were once called nations.

Do they really think this deviously? Yes. Listen to a revelation by a new world order leader as quoted in the book, The Armageddon Script:

"Their script is now written, subject only to last-minute editing and stage-directions. The stage itself, albeit as yet in darkness, is almost ready. Down in the pit, the subterranean orchestra is already tuning up. The last-minute, walk-on parts are even now being filled. Most of the main actors ... have already taken up their roles. Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise. The time for action will have come."

Read this key revelation from the Illuminati script, "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" (deceitfully and successfully sold to the ignorant masses as a Jewish document, thereby keeping their identities hidden, as usual):

"When we come into our kingdom, our orators will expound great problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it, at the end, under our beneficent rule. Who will ever suspect, then, that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries?" From Protocol 13.

For centuries? That's right. We have been told in Holy Scripture from the beginning that Satan is, and has been, the controller of earth rulers and affairs since the fall of Adam and Eve. He was behind Nimrod and the Tower of Babel and every other evil plot throughout history. And he's behind this one, which is ready to be wrapped up. He is the consummate expert in the matter of deception.

And just how many people in the United States do you think are aware of this? Are you?

The end of the Age is upon us. There is no time for delay. This is time for serious people to heed the task at hand. The stakes are too high to get this wrong.

Opinions

First, a blog is the writer's opinion. None of us is without opinions. But opinions are a territory fraught with danger because they may influence others, but more often they elicit opinions from the reader, especially if the reader disagrees.

First, some opinions are neither right or wrong. They're a personal view, attitude or appraisal. If I view peanut butter as tasting better than spinach, it's not right or wrong if your view is that spinach tastes better. Neither of us is in error; it's simply a personal attitude or appraisal of those two foods. It's not a matter of fact, but a matter of personal view. Even if a poll was taken, and 99 out of 100 people liked peanut butter, the spinach lover still is not wrong, because there is no objective fact or truth involved. It's just a matter of ... well, opinion.

Second, there are professional opinions. These may be right or wrong, but they can still lie partially in the area of personal view. If my doctor tells me I have jaundice, and another doctor diagnoses it as something else, one or both may be wrong or right. But each doctor's opinion is considered more important than, say, my cleaning lady's opinion. They are giving professional opinions based on education and experience, while her opinion is medically unprofessional, so I am likely to give more legitimacy to their opinions than to hers; although she may actually be giving the right opinion based on years of 'lay' experience. What I may do is look for yet a third professional opinion since I can't safely rely on the two opposing opinions, even though from professionals.

Third, an opinion may also be a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty. As in the example above, without sufficient evidence to give me complete certainty I may come to my own conclusion and form my own opinion based on a host of other factors about all three of the participants. Maybe one of the doctors is whacked out on drugs much of the time, maybe the other doctor is notorious for bad diagnoses, and maybe the cleaning lady has for years been involved in herbal and non-traditional medicine with renowned success (she cleans for the exercise). Bingo! I'm going with her. Of course, my insurance probably won't cover it :-)

And now we come to the sticky wickets. These are opinions which must be based on objective truth because the stakes for being wrong are very high. Therefore, it is critical that the truth be discovered or the end will be disastrous.

Right up there at the very top of this last category I would place religious faith. If you get this one wrong, the stakes are eternal. Forever. It doesn't get any bigger than that. The truth is available, though. Fortunately for us, God Himself has an interest in you finding it, so if you search hard enough the Lord will find you. That's a spiritual law.

There are some other categories similar to that of faith, but on a lower level; and the level that immediately comes to mind is government. There are objective facts (right/truth), but they are difficult to find due to the spate of lies and disinformation (wrong). And, while the stakes are not as high as eternity, they are very high. You can't really afford to be wrong in your opinion.

This is the arena of concern to me. The vast majority of Americans have opinions that are not based in fact, but on false and rewritten history, an educational system deliberately engineered to teach what is not true, and a completely manipulated media. This is all by design, for the purpose of massive deception, and in order to achieve a particular goal, the ushering in of the Antichrist. It is a system that has been set in place by Satan, who has been perfecting and engineering it for centuries, knowing so well how human nature works. Americans are responding in exactly the manner desired, and right on schedule. Unfortunately, their faulty opinions are set in stone: "My mind is made up; I'm not interested in facts."

I'm fairly certain that knowing the facts could not possibly change the outcome because God has ordained events. But my fears are twofold: 1) when the facts slam into us with all the shattering reality of truth, people will completely lose their equilibrium and go to pieces; and 2) the level of deceit is now hindering, and will in the future hinder, our ability to discern spiritual truth.

My entire paradigm has radically changed in the past year or two because of truths that I have discovered. I would never have thought it possible. My opinions have drastically changed. Oddly, my faith has grown exponentially. That is really why I started this blog. I felt it was my duty to tell what I believe to be the truth to the best of my ability. Oh, yes, sometimes I write light-hearted, fun pieces with some irony, mixed in with the most serious of matters. I will continue to do that, depending on what 'comes over me' on any particular day.

I am also going to delve into some extremely fascinating subject matter, much of which may be new - or even radical - to you. It will be backed by hours, weeks and months, even years, of research. In some cases it will be research-based opinion (meaning that there is still research to be done), and I will so indicate. In most cases it will be my fervent conviction that it is the truth.

I'm inviting you on what may seem at times to be a strange and turbulent ride.

All I ask is that you keep a mind open to new information ... and possibly the truth.
