“times when we must act beyond our comfort zones”

 

As a kid when we went to the barber shop, I sat in a booster seat of the big porcelain and leather chair to get what we called my ears lowered”. Before television became popular, we listened to a radio playing in the shop, while we were getting our haircut. I listen closely to a man who called himself Paul Harvey and his radio news blogs/reports called: Paul Harvey News. As I grew, I became fond of Harvey’s reports because he gave a more in-depth detail than what was given to us by the newspapers, on radio and early television. He always ended his reports with . . . “and now you have the rest of the story.”   The rest of the story in many cases gave an entire different light on the news story or the events in time which gave us a better understanding of the context of those situations. He was truly a newscaster that wasn’t just interested in the headline or the “hook” to grab people’s attention.   One of my favorite broadcasts of his A Letter from God.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYEFkYtANVg

 

My mother used to say: “Don’t believe a thing you hear and only half of what you see.” Before I move on, I want to give an illustration of what appears to be and what is not always the total truth but an opinionated reality.

 

Picture a caveman with his club raised growling at a crouched sabretooth tiger which appears to be attacking the man.  This appears to be a very animalistic view of man, a survival of the fittest picture.  However, lets zoom the lens out and bring into the frame of the picture and we see behind the caveman his woman holding their cave child.  Ah hah this changes the entire concept and context of the picture.  It’s this that I want all people who have a political view, especially if they’re media driven, to examine closely ALL of the INFORMATION; and not just to feed on the Headlines and sound bites.

 

As a popular TV show stated: “THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE” . . . but there are imitations of truth, and what may have been told to us as the truth, we may find to be a fabrication or clever lie.

 

fabrication is a lie told when someone submits a statement as truth, without knowing for certain whether or not it actually is true. Although the statement may be possible or plausible, it is not based on fact. Rather, it is something made up, or it is a misrepresentation of the truth.

 

 

What is the problem of The Modern Day Political movement?

 

The News Media is supposed to be nonpartisan in its reporting. They’re supposed to report the news and give detailed information to enlighten the public of what is (or was) happening during a situation.  They must be like an attorney in a court of law, present the facts only in like of the case. They should not lead the voter in political situations, but only report the facts and let the voters decide for themselves.

 

However, since there are so many news outlets, they have become competitive and “eye catching” with their reporting.  They rely on shock factors with headlines and Sound bites in the electronic media to sensationalize an event so people will look to an individual news source for the report. However, many people don’t research and look deep into the report and are satisfied with the headline or sound bite for making up their minds. At this time, we wonder since we were tricked into reading or viewing their report, just how much truth is behind the story.

 

Then the patronizing of Parties has come to fruition, a political group will actually feed and leak stories to the media and then the party becomes a viable source to the new outlet.  When this happens, the source may not realize that they have become victims to a controlled outlet by the particular party (I’m just trying to be fair by giving the sources the benefit of doubt, although, I’m sure most of the sources are totally aware).  Because of the money behind these relationships, much of the news media has become the mouth piece for that party.  And for 30 to 40 years the mainstream media have become not only controlled by the Democratic Party associates but has been its mouth piece.  Journalism is no longer the art.

 

Here is a link to a report that shows the trend of most media agencies which most of us view or listen to.

Here’s How Liberal Or Conservative Major News Sources Really Are

From Business Insider

http://www.businessinsider.com/what-your-preferred-news-outlet-says-about-your-political-ideology-2014-10

If you’ll notice that the average partisan leans to the liberal (left) although there are a few that are more biased to the right or conservative. However, this is good since the mainstream media leans to the liberal left, a balance is given as Harvey would say, as: “The rest of the story”.

You may ask what is my point? Well that is that the media for the large part is swayed to a political view.  The people who view or listen to the outlets are drawn to them because of the familiarly and comfortable perception.  Although you might think well there are a few that lean to the conservative right. This is true and one of them even uses the slogan, fair and balanced, which is mostly because they offer the alternative, not that they are totally fair and balanced unto themselves.   However, I do see and hear from some of them scolding members of their own party, whereas not seen so much from the media sources that have aligned to the liberal left.

Let’s look at the art of photo shopping, in the light of not shopping for photos but distorting them to give a different effect other than the natural one the camera saw.

Here is a famous picture on the internet of a morph of Bill and Hillary Clinton, affectionately known as Billary

billary

If you notice this is not exactly what the camera saw, although the same camera may have seen both separate images before they were merged or morphed as one.

Here is another of George W. Bush and Barak Obama

Therefore, since the liberal press has been influenced so much by Hollywood, who are masters of giving us illusions, they tend to AIRBRUSH and make things look either pretty or different then they way they really are.  They tend to do this in their reporting for any of their favorites. They wash the ugly negative part of the celebrity or politician’s life. Whereas they do the opposite with a popular person who may represent another party, even if it’s to make up the story.    Since the opposing news media outlets have to be careful and report the detail truth, the Left only reply with “Republican says; or Republicans does”

Here we see a very nice woman who is pretty but made to be more beautiful by removing blemishes and adding touch-ups to alter her face.

photoshopping

This is a visual example of what is also done in Media Reporting.  The lens may not have been altered in the clip but it the clip itself may have been edited by taking it out of context details to give a different point of view, although the story may not have been totally made up.

We’ve experience a situation this past weekend (9/11/16) where Hilary Clinton collapsed in New York while attending a 9/11 memorial ceremony.

We were given TWO types of reports: one from the mainstream liberal media reported that she was exhausted from the heat and shown a clip of being helped into a SUV and the report went on to mention that she was taken to her daughter’s apartment in New York where she rested a couple hours and later was shown leaving Chelsea’s apartment, smiling and waving like she is okay.

The other report showed a longer version of the clip of her getting into the SUV, where she actually collapsed.  The report challenged the heat exhaustion story since the temperature at 9:30 am (time of collapse) was 79 and humidity 79% at 8:51AM and 79 and humidity 54% at 9:51am. Notice that the humidity because of passing clouds and winds was closer to 54% by the time of the collapse.

New York Weather History for September 11, 2016

Show weather for:  Previous 24 hours September 13, 2016 September 12, 2016 September 11, 2016 September 10, 2016 September 9, 2016 September 8, 2016 September 7, 2016 September 6, 2016 September 5, 2016 September 4, 2016 September 3, 2016 September 2, 2016 September 1, 2016 August 31, 2016 August 30, 2016 August 29, 2016

The concern of the first reporting was that she is okay and it wasn’t a really big deal.

The concern of the second report was that it was a big deal since a few days earlier she had a coughing spell during her Labor Day speech at a rally in Cleveland Ohio.  The concern of the second report was in keeping with the alert that Hillary Clinton’s health may not be as well as her people want to report.   The idea that the report after the event on the 15th anniversary of 9/11 was that she had Pneumonia, made inquiring minds ask if the coughing spell on September 5th (Labor Day) was instead of the stated allergies, that the real fact was that she had pneumonia as far back as then.  This becomes a problem as we the people are not fairly given the undivided truth of the events that occur in our world and country.  Instead the stories a presented from a controlled story telling source.

At the beginning of my political life, I was not really interested in politics and I was a part of a generation that seem to follow the whelms of the everyday people, as I grew up in the fifties & sixties in a generation who largely seemed to have a revolution against those who wanted us to be responsible citizens in society.    My generation appeared to have a better idea, like marijuana, mind drugs, sex, rock-n-roll and make love, “power to the people” and peace all day, as these would seem to solve all of the problems of the world.

However, as we got older, and graduated from our high school and college days, we realized that these things didn’t solve the problems of the world, as we understood how much more complex it was, as the system made us more aware as we were told by other leaders that a revolution was needed, and like the oysters with the Walrus, we’re lead out of our comfort zone, talked about worldly things until too late, we were eaten up.

We began to realize that it’s all about “Getting our Heads” as John Lennon, one of these sixties/seventies musicians put it, and wrote a political song called Mind Games:  My favorite verse shows how this idea has become perpetual in our living.

“We’re playing those mind games together
Pushing the barriers planting seeds
Playing the mind guerrilla
Chanting the Mantra peace on earth
We all been playing those mind games forever
Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil
Doing the mind guerrilla
Some call it magic the search for the grail

Love is the answer and you know that for sure
Love is a flower
You got to let it, you gotta let it grow” .  . .

“So keep on playing those mind games together
Faith in the future out of the now
You just can’t beat on those mind guerrillas
Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind
Yeah we’re playing those mind games forever
Projecting our images in space and in time”

When I first heard this song the phrase that stuck with me was:

 

“Pushing the barriers planting seeds
Playing the mind guerrilla”

 

Of course, I realized that John believed in his own words as he also was planting seeds to the listeners of his song, with “Love is the answer” (ALL YOU NEED) “Love is a flower,” “you got to let it grow.”

Although I agree with him to extent, love is a strong force (by design) with us as some type of love is a motivating force us, but it’s not always the answer. It seems that Love cannot be understood in a general sense.  The Greek has 4 different words that state what kind of love is being spoken about. Our English language uses a sentence structure and modifiers to connote what type of Love to which we might be referring.

For instance, in the passage below (which is misquoted too often) a love (many would call it lust) love for money is the basis for all kinds of evil.

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil,” 1 Timothy 6.10

(many take it as “money alone” but the Apostle stated the LOVE of (for) Money is the ROOT of ALL KINDS OF EVIL.

Some say when a politician lies to get power, many of us assume that ALL politicians lie and we merely surrender the power to them with our vote for the individual.

if we really cared and wanted to do something about the problems of the world we would have to be in a group of people that would research and see why the world is getting bad.   Therefore, I switched to a group that did just that.   What I began doing was to look more towards alternative new sources instead of the normal everyday available sources.

I discovered that too often with headlines and sound bites, our lazy generations now don’t bother to research and trust the media to give us the truth.  However too often it’s not; or the truth is slanted and taken out of context to enforce they catching of eyes and ears.

There is another passage that makes this more understandable:

2 Timothy 4:3

(3)  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

The itching ears is an awesome term.  Because of sensationalism we have become numbed to hear what we want to hear, and if we hear it, nothing else matters.   We hear click words such as liar, racism, fascism, thief and even murder. Then to be sure we’re shown a video clip out of context to support the fabrication of the terms above, and we swallow it up only instead for our minds to be swallowed up as the oysters were with the Walrus.

How to discern truth from false information

  • Learn how to communicate with your intuition because it will not lie to you. Your intuition is the light within you that gives you an awareness that is beyond what words can describe. It is a knowingness that comes without explanation or proof, and takes place at the cellular level and beyond. When it comes to interpreting your intuition, you should be careful because even though your intuition will not lie to you, your interpretation of it may not be right.
  • If information does not resonate with you, make sure you ponder about it and not just accept that all of it is false. Information that does not resonate with you can sometime mean that you are not yet ready for it. You should also ponder about information that does resonate with you. Doing this will help you understand why it does not resonate with you.
  • Learn to communicate with your higher-self. Direct communication with your higher-self is rare because it takes tremendous discipline of the mind and body. Your higher-self will usually communicate with you through symbols to prevent infringing upon your free will. Once you learn how to communicate with your higher-self, finding the path of truth will become easier.
  • When information is true to you, it will sometime cause a tingling or shivering feeling throughout your body. Sometime you may feel a strong emotional feeling in your heart. The tingling feeling you experience when you hear something that contains truth is all the cells in your body simultaneously agreeing on a new concept of truth.

 

 

How to Discern Truth from False Information

However, we don’t want to involve all emotion, That’s what the mainstream media is depending on.  They have insisted many instances of emotional divides with situations such as protests for a shooting of a particular race or the killing of policemen.

We want to use reason and logic during our research while listening to what has been told to us.  Instead of just soaking in the information, in our minds we should be saying: “Wait A minute” . . .

We need to understand that if one party digs up dirt (gossip, bad information) on another or another party’s candidate, and if the same is for the members of the offending party, but ignored or morphed it into something else, above, then we need to use our head and not our emotions. When these things happen we need to understand that a double standard is being set.  We should not want a candidate because he or she is the first of a kind?  I’m a believer that any qualitied person (includes knowledge of what’s going on both domestically and internationally, and what needs to be done to protect this country) should be given the chance to run; and that this should be the first and foremost and not the color of their skin or the person’s gender. The latter is an emotional decision and not a logical one.

When these things happen we need to look to the other side of the information even if we get it from sources to which we don’t normal view or listen.   Keep in mind the agenda of most of the mainstream media is HEADLINES & Sound bites to get our attention.  Then when we read the stories we find that it is just an extension of the Headline, rather than both sides of the story, like the news media is supposed to report.  Too many of the stories we hear on TV and read in our newspapers are totally out of context and context makes a world of difference.   We as the voters need to research and check out for what is being told to us to be sure it is the truth or a lie.

We now call this fact checking, but we tend to listen to the press that represents a certain party for fact checking, If that be the case there has to be some bias in the reporting or to how much research was used for the fact checking process.

Below is believed to be a list of NON-Partisan Fact Checkers.

FactCheck.org A project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, the nonpartisan, nonprofit. FactCheck.org monitors the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews, and news releases. The site’s goal is to “apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.”

OpenSecrets.org It’s not exactly a fact-checking website, but this website from the Center for Responsive Politics does keep track of the money in politics. The site describes itself as “the nation’s premier research group tracking money in U.S. politics and its elect on elections and public policy.”

PolitiFact.com A project of the Tampa Bay Times and its partners. It intends to “help you find the truth in politics. . . . We research public statements and rate their accuracy as True, Mostly True, Half True, Mostly False, False and Pants on Fire.” In 2009, PolitiFact won the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.

ProCon.org ProCon.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity. It has no government affiliations. It provides resources for critical thinking in order to educate without bias. It expresses no opinions. ProCon.org researches controversial and important issues and presents them in a balanced, comprehensive, straightforward, and primarily pro-con format.

Snopes.com Not strictly limited to politics, Snopes is a website that attempts to debunk and validate urban legends, Internet rumors and other stories of uncertain origin. It is an independent entity owned by its operators, Barbara and David Mikkelson, who say they receive no funding in any form.

The Fact Checker A blog from the Washington Post, The Fact Checker checks statements by politicians and political advocacy groups. It regularly doles out Pinocchios based upon politicians’ statements.

TruthOrFiction.com This site says of itself, “Get the truth about rumors, inspirational stories, virus warnings, hoaxes, scams, humorous tales, pleas for help, urban legends, prayer requests, calls to action, and other forwarded emails.”

WHO KILLED JESUS CHRIST?

Dimensional CrucifixionWHO KILLED JESUS?

Much of the Bible requires study to understand the reason and details of certain events that take place in it.  For instance, prophecies are linked together throughout the Old and New Testaments which details God’s desires and his actions with his people and the Leaders of Nations throughout time, down to a given time.

The Prophecies about Jesus the Christ/Yeshua Ha Mashiach were fulfilled on a Feast of the Lord’s day, whereas the Israelites and the Jews still celebrate today.  These are appointments by God and his calendar (appointments) for his people to celebrate every year.   Two of the Feast that involve Jesus’ birth and death are the Feast of Tabernacles (or Sukkot) and Passover. When one studies the Bible, it’s easy to see that Jesus wasn’t born on December 25th.  He was conceived on that day but was actually born during the Feast of Tabernacles, also known as Sukkot or Booths, in the month of September – October [ELUL 5775 — TISHREI 5776.  Interesting to know that the Greek translation of the word Stable (in the birth story) is “Booth”.  Booths were where Jacob kept his animals.

It’s called Tabernacles when the Israelites wandered in the wilderness, and God’s Tabernacle (movable habitat) was in their midst where he abided with them. This was the last time God dwelled with his people; and Jesus was the next time.  It is also the feast of Lights and Living Waters, both of which Jesus referred to himself in John 8:12 & John 4:14:

Mat 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Jesus’ Crucifixion was during the time of Passover, although the Roman Catholic church calls it Good Friday, but many Christians today are realizing the feasts and their purpose, and are celebrating the Feast of Passover and the First Fruits, instead of Good Friday and Easter.  If you look at the first Passover Story, the death angel passed over the dwellings that had the lamb’s blood from an unblemished lamb smeared across the portal of the home.   John the Baptist when he saw Jesus approaching the river where John was baptizing people, replied:

Joh 1:28-33  These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.  (29)  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.  (30)  This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.  (31)  And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.  (32)  And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.  (33)  And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

John was referring to the Pascal Lamb of the Feast of Passover, which was a type and shadow of Jesus’ sacrifice to come. God also made a type and shadow of the Sacrifice of His Son by testing Abraham to see if he would sacrifice his own son, Isaac on the alter.

 

Therefore,  as for the death of Jesus and who killed him? This is a question that I see as having three answers: 1: How far back was the event planned by God. 2 Who actually convicted him to death and carried out the verdict; and 3- Who is responsible? 

So let’s speak first about how long and give a bit of background history as to why he came to die:

1 – HOW LONG WAS THE CRUCIFIXION PLANNED?

 1Pe 1:19-20  But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:  (20)  Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

 

Foundation: G2602  καταβολή  katabolē  kat-ab-ol-ay’

From G2598; a deposition, that is, founding; figuratively conception: – conceive, foundation.

This is reference to the first age, when Lucifer began his revolt against God. See the link below for more detail.

The Katabolé – Satan’s war with God  http://howlongolord.com/?p=125

The above site explains well in detail from scripture, the events of the Katabole and the foundation of the World.  Because of this war, God destroyed the inhabitants of the world in the first age (not Noah’s Flood) and recreated the it where in this age, all spirits had to be born of woman. Genesis 1:1&2)

 

Jesus explains in John 3:1-21 the detail of two births.

Nicodemus-Christ

(1)  There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  (2)  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.  (3)  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily (Verily means truth – so be it), verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Again:  G509  ἄνωθεν  anōthen  an’-o-then

From G507; from above; by analogy from the first; by implication anew:from above, again, from the beginning (very first), the top.

Too long we’ve been taught that the spiritual birth is the second birth and that we give our souls to God, when he already owns them (Ezekiel 8:4) If we study Jesus’ words closely and look at the Greek text, we see that the spiritual is actually the first birth and as he explains further on down, the second birth is of water (from the womb and not baptism, as we were also taught). He is making reference also to the fallen angels that refused to come to this world by the womb, therefore they cannot inherit the kingdom.

(4)  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  (5)  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water (womb of the flesh) and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  (6)  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  (7)  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  (8)  The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.  (9)  Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?  (10)  Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?  (11)  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.  (12)  If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?  (13)  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.  (14)  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:  (15)  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  (16)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  (17)  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  (18)  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  (19)  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  (20)  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  (21)  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

This reference is made to show that all were involved in the Katabole and that this Age is the age of repentance, i.e. to choose which side of the war each of us will take. This outcome of our decision is manifested in the above verses 16-21.

 

 

The Mark of Cain.  Mark Of Cain

We know that according to the scripture, (Gen 4:14), because Cain killed his brother, Abel, he was banished to the wilderness as a nomad. Because of his concern that his punishment was greater than he could bear, and that he was afraid that he would become a fugitive and vagabond, or be killed.  But God told him that whoever slays him would be punished seven fold. The Lord then put a mark on him so all would know the authority protecting him.

 

Mark: H226  אוֹת  ‘ôth oth

Probably from H225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.: – mark, miracle, (en-) sign, token.

This mark was a mark of authority concerning Cain which made men fear him, and also gave him power which made him a ruler over the disobedient.

The Lord knew that the children of disobedience would soon outnumber the obedient ones, and therefore a leader would be appointed over the disobedient, to keep them in line. This would be done through governments (cities) and laws.  (Awareness inspired by the video: Mark of Cain by Walter Veith  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VllmgIcRes)

 

Gen 4:23-24  And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.  (24)  If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

This coincides with the message given to Daniel, that the end of the payment will be end after the seventy sevens.

Daniel is deeply concerned because God’s people are permeated with sin. He begs God to heal His people from their leprosy of sin. While Daniel is still praying Gabriel arrives from the courts of heaven to answer Daniel’s prayer. Gabriel says:

“As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision:

 Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed For your people and your holy city
To finish transgression,
To put an end to sin,
To atone for wickedness,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy
And to anoint the most holy.” Daniel 9:23,24 (NIV).

(The Mark of the Beast Explained http://www.markbeast.com/70jubilees/abolish.htm)

Many cultures reproduced the story of Cain in their own beliefs, as if they were the first to discover the event, and some historians who don’t believe the Bible, belief as such, as well.  Actually these cultures’ ancestors were from the land of Shinar, where Nimrod (The Great grandson of Noah) who like Cain was a builder of cities (governments); and the father of paganism.  When God scattered the people with diverse tongues, it caused them to migrate in groups which formed the ethnos, and therefore forming their ethos. Satan has been working diligently to get them all back together as one in his name (Lucifer) instead of in the plan of God through the name of Christ. His plan through false religions is to bring all nations together under a one world religion and a new world order.

 

One  Culture saw god as Marduk, and his son Annu.

The ancient Babylonian deity Marduk was associated with the planet Mars and was the origin of the legends and lore of that planet as well as many later gods and heroes. Marduk originated as the apotheosis of the biblical Nimrod. The book of Genesis lists Nimrod as a descendant of Ham, the third son of Noah. After the flood when men began to multiply once again and to establish settlements, the majority of Noah’s descendants evidently settled together in the valley of Mesopotamia, though a few spread out into Palestine and north-west Africa. After about a thousand years (exact date unspecified in the Bible), Nimrod was born in what is now Ethiopia.

According to tradition, Nimrod set out to establish himself an empire and began by conquering the cities which had become established in Mesopotamia. Among these were Babel, Erech, Akkad, and Calneh in Sumeria, and in Assyria the cities of Rehoboth, Calah, and Resen. Besides conquering these seven cities he also founded Ninevah. The Bible is specific in stating that he was the first man after the flood to become an emperor. He seems to have been impelled and empowered by super-human force and his onslaught was irresistible. Genesis 10 describes Nimrod as a “mighty hunter before the LORD.” The term is not complimentary, but implies ruthlessness and a lust for power.

After establishing his kingdom in the Tigris/Euphrates region, Nimrod consolidated his power by establishing a state religion. He constructed a religion that included deification and worship of the emperor (himself), worship of Satan and his demons, and star-worship (corrupted from a pure antediluvian astronomy). A key unifying factor in his religion was to be an astronomical/astrological observatory built upon the pinnacle of a pyramid, or tower, at Babel. It has been suggested that Nimrod spent some time in Egypt before moving up to Mesopotamia and that while in Egypt he studied the Egyptian mystery religion perpetuated there from before the flood by the wife of Ham, whom tradition takes to be a descendant of Cain.

The building of this pyramid (or ziggurat) was interrupted by God himself in order to prevent Nimrod from extending his sway over all of the inhabited earth, according to Genesis. God halted the work by confusing their language so they could no longer cooperate easily with one another, nor indeed easily inhabit the same region together. As a consequence the human race was dispersed, and as men scattered they carried with them remnants of primeval revelation from God, and Satan/hero worship which Nimrod had invented as well. This system of muddled half-truths is known today to Bible scholars as the “Babylonian Mystery Religion.” From a biblical point of view this religious system is described as the well-spring for all subsequent false religion and endless mythological systems, (For example see Isaiah 47 and revelation Chapters 17 and 18).

2 – WHO ACCUSED, CONVICTED, AND CARRIED OUT THE EXECUTION:

Judgement Of Christ

  • Christ prophesied:
    • Mat 20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,  19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.
  • Fourteen times he told the disciples that he would be put to death.
  • Purpose of Jesus’ coming: Jesus mentioned over and over that his purpose was not fulfilled yet.
  • Time of Jesus and the Jewish culture.
    • “Jesus came at a time when the Jewish culture was collapsing under the burdens of the Pharisees. Because they place upon the Law of Moses and additional 100 plus laws for every one of the 613. It was a time of spiritual corruption where the people did not know the truth any longer. Because of this they were brought under the leadership of those who claimed to know the truth but actually led them away from it.
    • Jesus continued to give His disciples more information on His purpose for coming to earth. Mark 8:31: “And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again

(Let Us Reason) WHY DID JESUS COME TO EARTH  http://www.letusreason.org/Doct60.htm

I’ve noticed that the term Jews in the Biblical interaction with Jesus and the Jews, the term Jews seems to identify specifically to the leaders and not the WHOLE OF JEWISH PEOPLE or the people of Judah in Judea. After all, Jesus himself was a Jew. The leaders mainly consist of Pharisees, Sadducees and Scribes.

  • Pharisees– a group of influential Jews active in Palestine from 2nd century BCE through 1st century CE; they advocated and adhered to strict observance of the Sabbath rest, purity rituals, tithing, and food restrictions based on the Hebrew Scriptures and on later traditions.
  • Sadducees– another prominent group of Jews in Palestine from 2nd century BCE through 1st century CE; they were probably smaller “elite” group, but even more influential than the Pharisees; they followed the laws of the Hebrew Bible (the Torah), but rejected newer traditions.
  • Elders the “older men” of a community who formed the ruling elite and were often members of official “councils”.
  • Essenes– a smaller group or “sect” that lived a communal “monastic” lifestyle at Qumram (near the Dead Sea) from 2nd century BCE through 1st century CE; the “Dead Sea Scrolls” found in this location in 1947 are usually associated with them.
  • High Priest, Chief Priests, Priests, and Levites members of the tribe of Levi who were responsible for the temple and its sacrifices, and thus were the religious and social leaders of the Jewish people.
  • Scribes– men specially trained in writing and thus influential as interpreters and teachers of the Law, and agents of the rulers.

Scribes were not a separate group as they could be representative in all of the above. They as the Gospels connotes were lawyers since they interpret the law and were involved with written legal documents that specialized in the interpretation of Jewish Law (the Torah). They also recorded deeds, copied scripture and taught the people.

  • The Gospels usually portray scribes (along with chief priests, elders, and/or Pharisees) as opponents of Jesus who actively sought his death (Mark 11:27).

 

HEROD THE GREAT  Herod The Great

Herod the Great was the villain in the Christmas story, a wicked king who saw the baby Jesus as a threat and wanted to murder him.

Although he ruled over the Jews in Israel in the time before Christ, Herod the Great was not completely Jewish. He was born in 73 B.C. to an Idumean man named Antipater and a woman named Cyprus, who was the daughter of an Arab sheik.

Herod the Great was a schemer who took advantage of Roman political unrest to claw his way to the top. During a civil war in the empire, Herod won the favor of Octavian, who later became the Roman emperor Augustus Caesar. Once he was king, Herod launched an ambitious building program, both in Jerusalem and the spectacular port city of Caesarea, named after the emperor. He restored the magnificent Jerusalem temple, which was later destroyed by the Romans following a rebellion in A.D. 70.

 

From: Herod the Great – Ruthless King of the Jews, Profile of Herod the Great, Enemy of Jesus Christ   http://christianity.about.com/od/newtestamentpeople/a/JZ-Herod-The-Great.htm

www.britannica.com/…/Herod-king-of-Judaea Encyclopedia Britannica

Herod was born in southern Palestine. His father, Antipater, was an Edomite (an Arab from the region between the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba). Antipater was a man of great influence and wealth who increased both by marrying the daughter of a noble from Petra (in southwestern Jordan), at that time the capital of the rising Nabataean kingdom. Thus, Herod was, although a practicing Jew, of Arab origin on both sides.

High Priest Corruption In The Days Of Jesus:

We’ve mostly understood that the Priests who were always trying to corner Jesus, were either corrupt or ignorant. Since they were scholars of the Torah and the Prophets, they definitely weren’t ignorant to much of the references that Jesus made in their conversations. Therefore, they had to be corrupt. Let’s look where many who know the story haven’t ventured before, so we can get a better perspective of what is actually happening during these confrontations.

“Annas was not the current high priest, having been disposed by the Romans in favor of his son-in-law Caiaphas. He still bore the title of high priest, just as ex-presidents of the United States are still called president. Caiaphas was in office until 36 A.D. He was a Sadducee. (Sadducees believed only in the first five books of Moses, since they did not recognize the prophets they did not believe in a resurrection).(2) (Note concerning Book of Acts Chapter 4 Verse 6).

The High Priest ruled over the temple. He was appointed by Herod for the duration he desired, and often won his office through treachery or bribery. Beginning with the Maccabean revolt and up until the time of Herod-the high priest was the leading religious and political figure in Jerusalem.(3)

After Herod’s death and the removal of Archelaus, the appointing of the high priest passed to the Roman governors of Jerusalem.(3)

For 44 years following the reign of Herod, the Romans usurped the right of appointing the High Priest. The right reverted to King Agrippa the second during the last 20 years of the temples existence.(3) In the final generation of high priests prior to 70 A.D. (Temple’s destruction), the Roman Governors once again allowed Agrippa 2nd to choose the high priest.(3)”

High Priest Corruption In The Days Of Jesus: http://jewishroots.net/library/miscellaneous/high_priest_corruption.html

Okay, first Herod was appointed King by Caesar Augustus, and was influence by Caesar and the Roman way.  The King/Caesar was the lord over not only the people but their religion as well.  The Roman law was for all of the Rome Empire to worship Caesar or die.  Through Herod, the Jews were allowed to worship their God. However, Herod implemented his own edict and anyone who wanted to worship other than the way Herod wanted them to was killed. Although this deal was made with the Jews, through Herod, to worship their God, it cost them in that the people were led away from the orthodoxy of their religion and were also taxed for the exemption of worshiping Caesar. For more clarification, I refer to excerpts from:

HEROD THE GREAT

“The general Roman attitude was one of tolerance, meaning Jews were granted exemptions from the official Roman state religion. A very interesting point to remember is that religion and state went together in all empires in the ancient world, and more so in Rome than almost anywhere because Rome also practiced emperor worship—that is, the Romans deified their emperors posthumously.

Linking state and religion gave the rulers added legitimacy, obviously. The connection between temporal power and spiritual power gave them complete control over the physical existence and spiritual existence of their subjects. (Later, we are going to see the Catholic Church doing the same thing in Medieval Europe.)

While accepting the state religion was a vital part of Roman identity and loyalty to the state, the Romans were also pragmatists. They had learned by the Greek experience that Jews could not be forced to worship idols. And they saw for themselves that the Jews were not like other pagan peoples—they were not going to conform. So the Romans granted the Jews an official status of being exempt from Roman state religion . . .

. . . Seeing himself as an enlightened leader who would bring his backward people into the modern world, Herod did what he saw necessary to accomplish his “idealistic” end. This included the persecution and murder of all rabbis whom he viewed not only as threats to his authority, but as obstacles to the mass Hellenization of the Jews.

As a result of Herod’s interference and the ever-spreading Hellenistic influences among the Jewish upper classes, the Temple hierarchy became very corrupt. The Sadducees, a religious group of the wealthy, who collaborated with the Romans in order to keep their power base, now controlled the Temple, much to the chagrin of the mainstream Jewish majority, the Pharisees, and of the extreme religious minority, the Zealots.

The cauldron was beginning to boil and soon it would erupt.

1)See Talmud-Megillah 6a
2)The Talmud relates the following story: Herod went and killed [most of] Rabbis. However he left Bavas ben Buta alive in order to use him as an adviser Herod put a crown of sharpened porcupine skin around his eyes, [and the sharp spines] blinded him. One day Herod, [pretending to be an ordinary citizen], sat down before Bava ben Buta and said, “Rabbi, do realize the terrible things this no-good slave Herod is doing?” “What should I do to him?” replied Bave ben Buta. Said Herod , [trying to trap him], “I want you to curse him.” Replied Bava ben Buta, “[How can I curse him] It says, ‘Even in your thoughts do not curse a king.’(Ecclesiastes 12:20). Retorted Herod, “But he is no king; [he does not meet the criteria of a Jewish king.]” replied Bava ben Buta, “He certainly is no less than a rich man and the same verse continues, ‘and in your bedchamber do not curse the rich.’ He certainly is no different than a leader, and it says, ‘Do not curse the leader of your people’ (Exodus 22:27).’… Herod then confessed, “I am Herod. If I had known that the rabbis were so careful [with their words], I would not have killed them. Now please tell what I can do to rectify what I have done?” Replied Bava ben Buta, “Since you snuffed out the light of the world, [that is what the rabbis are called]…you should involve yourself in [increasing] the light of the world [i.e. the Temple]…Someone who has not seen the new Temple that Herod built has never seen a magnificent building.” Talmud-Bava Basra 3b-4a ”  http://www.simpletoremember.com/articles/a/herod3_the_great/

So now we have a better view of the state of being when Jesus arrived on the scene; all of the good guys were gone and Herod’s corrupted appointees were still in office, running the Temple affairs according to Herod and his son’s (Herod Antipas) doctrines instead of the Torah. We can better understand how God calls his Church (people/leaders) to repentance first.  All through his ministry, Jesus rebuked the then known church leaders over his Father’s house as he challenged them and called them to repentance over and over.  Now that we have a bit of a history, we can see what a task Jesus had to perform, as he cleans out the Temple, his Father’s house.

Again the rulers of the disobedient continue to rule through the Hellenistic influences .

Therefore, to put this desire for the death of Jesus (Yeshua) on all Jews (then and now), is ludicrous, since Mosaic laws in the Tora were disregarded.  When the Bible refers to the Jews at the time of Jesus, it was classifying the specific corrupt leaders with an agenda of self-serving amongst the them: The Sanhedrin, (combining rulers including both Pharisees and Sadducees and Scribes)

 So, let’s now examine the elements involved with Jesus’ death, which are:

Judas, the betrayer. One who many believe was tricked into his act, as he thought by keeping Jesus in jail, it would protect him from the outraged people, but the priests did a turn-about by proceeding to try and kill him. On the other hand, many believe that he had contempt for Jesus and betrayed him because he like the other zealot’s, was disappointed that Jesus purpose WAS NOT to raise of an army to fight the Romans. In either case, he gave the enemy access to Jesus which began the arrest, investigation and the trial for death.

  • The Sanhedrin (referred often as “the Jews” in the gospel), which were made up of 20 to 23 for capital cases and fewer in number for lesser offenses. This counsel was led by the High Priest; and at the time of Jesus was Caiaphas. The entire council normally required for capital cases, were not invited, because for Caiaphas, he felt a quorum would be enough to carry out his plan.
  • Pilate and The Romans (the Gentiles) who were swayed by the Sanhedrin, who rested on the fact that Jesus called himself a King which would be treason enough against Caesar, forcing Pilate to warrant the penalty of death by Crucifixion.
  • The people gathered illegally at night, who like sheep were easily led to hate and scourge.
  • God and His plan for the outcome.

All of these were a part of the charges, judgment and execution of Jesus.  But keep in mind these were people of the time; and generations after these were not to be cursed. Although the crowd pleaded for Jesus’ blood to be put on their head, there is no passage that states that God honored their request. On the contrary since Jesus asked the Father to forgive them for they do not know what they do; they had no idea what was really happening at the time.

This brings us to The term of Kenites:

Remember in the beginning where we opened with the Mark of Cain, in the Bible. His descendants are called Kenites.

 Cain: H7014 קַיִן qayin kah’-yin

The same as H7013 (with a play upon the affinity to H7069); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental tribe: – Cain, Kenite (-s).

 Kenites: H7017 קִינִי    קֵינִי  qêynı̂y    qı̂ynı̂y kay-nee’, kee-nee’

Patronymic from H7014; a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin (Cain): – Kenite.

In 1 JOHN 3:11-12 we see:

11  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

 

In Genesis 5, notice that Cain is not even in Adam’s genealogy; and neither was Abel, because he was killed and bore no descendants. However the lineage was passed down to Seth, wholly Adam’s son.

Gen 5:3  And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: 4  And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: 5  And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. 6  And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos (Enoch): 7  And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:  . . . .  and so on . . .

In Matthew  13:24 Jesus taught:

24  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

Seed: G4690 (Greek) σπέρμα spermasper’-mah From G4687; somethng sown, that is, seed (including the male “sperm”); by implication offspring; specifically a remnant (figuratively as if kept over for planting): – issue, seed.

Mat 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

Mat 13:34  All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: 35  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

So, Jesus’ appearance was  to also reveal those secret things sealed at the foundation of the world.

Mat 13:36  Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

Notice two different situations:

  1. Two different seeds: The wheat and tares.
  2. Jesus reveals things that have been kept secret since the foundation of the world.

=================================================

Forbidden Fruit

It’s not just so that the Kenites are Kenites from a seed line but what they do (from ethnos to ethos). Does the individual teach against the Bible and the Plan of God.  Therefore, even a Kenite can accept Jesus and come to the Father.  However, those who are in high places will not step down to do so.

Much of the bad (the disobedient) seed are the mockers of Christianity (the good, the obedient seed). The bad seed rises in education, i.e. our schools and universities; and teach our children against religion. In America this target is Judaism and Christianity. They also teach against the principals and values of the country which they live in and are allowed to teach.  In the media (including movies) and in politics, the values of the Judeo-Christian religions are constantly mocked and railed against.

Every living thing on earth began with a seed.  A seed has in it DNA, the program of what that living thing will be on earth, the form, the purpose and its drive for life.

JOHN 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2  The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

The Word is the good seed both physical and spiritual.  Therefore, Satan has planted his own seed, both physically and spiritually.

Today we’re familiar with computers and understand with them that there is programming (code) that makes them operate. We have also come to understand what a virus is; and how it changes the code of the program, causing the program to end up with a different result than originally planned; and even crash the operation.  Think of Satan’s seed as a virus that was planted in the beginning and passed on down to his offspring.

 

The Satan Seed is thought to be a horrific idea and an impossibility; however, we’re taught of the Sons Of God (Angels) planting seeds in the daughters of men.  So let’s review Gen 6:1

  • Son’s of God (Angels) saw the daughters of men
  • They took them as wives, and had offspring, not normal offspring, but hybrids. These became Giants and became mighty men of renown (Goliath was to be believed to be a descendant of one of these ).
  • This offended God since they have altered the DNA of man so God threatens to clean the situation up.

If Angels could do this as stated in the passage above; and Satan is an Angel, then would not the same possibility be for him? Were not these Angels a part of the Third of ALL Angels in Heaven doing as their leader had done in the beginning?

Mat 13:38-49  The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;  (39)  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.  (40)  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.  (41)  The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;  (42)  And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.  (43)  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.  (44)  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.  (45)  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:  (46)  Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.  (47)  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:  (48)  Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.  (49)  So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

The Kenites carry the seed of Satan and spread it throughout the world (the Tares of the field).  They have ascended to high places in Countries, federal, state, and city governments, as rulers of the disobedient. They have the Mark of Cain and Annu. They have ascended to positions where they teach our children in Primary, Secondary and University Education, to come away from any teaching of God, especially Christianity, as now they wink at Islam.

These even work themselves into our churches, as they did in the time of David when they were allowed to become scribes, in the temple, and later because of the scarcity of the Levites, became leaders, as the High Priest and his minions in the days when Jesus walked the earth, and later judged him and demanded his removal (crucifixion). The water down Christianity with its pagan form of worship, teach as the humanists do, the importance of the self, the wealth and power of the physical church and material worship.

 

They teach that none of this is important, since all ended with Christ, and now it doesn’t matter but whether or not one is in Christ, whereas this is true to a certainty, but we were never told to ignore the Old Testament and God has not changed his mind about his chosen people.

Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent (be sorry; ease himself of a decision) : hath he said, and shall he not do it?or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Christ came to fulfill the law and prophecies of the Old Testament, Tannak in Hebrew. His teachings were straight out of the Old Testament, therefore the Torah and Prophecies from the Old Testament are still the basis of God’s plan for man. God’s Holy Spirit rent the veil of the Temple so all men could come to him directly, through Jesus; for all, including these Kenites, the seed of Satan.

JOHN 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

So according to God’s plan, several were involved in the Crucifixion. God planned it before the Foundation of the world. He used the corruption of high ranking leaders of the Temple who broke laws, such as not having a trial at night, and the egotistic Roman leaders who would abolish anyone being charged of being a King, other than Caesar and Herod. He knew that people could be swayed and the spirit of Satan was in the midst of the court of Judgment. This appeared to be not only the will of the leadership and a small representation of the people.  God knew that the interpretative guide of man (worshiping God as they see fit) would intervene for them to perform capital punishment and therefore, the Romans became involved. God also had his people (although misguided) to offer up the Lamb of God, as they did so many years before on Passover.

 

The Jerusalem Talmud clearly states that Jews lost the power of capital punishment forty years before the destruction of the Herodian Temple, and the Babylonian Talmud echoes this1. Forty could be a round number, translatable into sixty-four. Newman believes that the Great Sanhedrin left the Hall of Hewn Stones in the Temple about A.D. 30, for reasons internal to Judaism, and that this fact, not Roman interference, caused the cessation of the death penalty. Roman practice does support the simple, factual understanding of John 18: 31: “We possess no civic power to impose a judicial death sentence at all.” This was the interpretation of Schiirer, Mommsen, Bernard, Jeremias, Rosenblatt, and a host of other scholars.

 

FROM: In the time of Jesus, were the Jewish authorities allowed to execute? http://hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/5558/in-the-time-of-jesus-were-the-jewish-authorities-allowed-to-execute

 

Mat 27:25  Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

Nowhere do the scriptures state that because of the Jews’ participation in the judgment and death of Jesus, they will be cursed at all times as being the enemy of Christians. That is from the replacement theory, an indoctrination begun by the Roman Catholic Church and passed down through many protestant beliefs.  The prophets never said this and neither did Jesus, the Apostles (or Paul) Christ on the Cross, forgave those who betrayed and crucified him.

Luke_23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

He spoke this for all, the Jews (again refers to the leadership of the Temple and the law.), the Romans, and the on watchers who scourged him. And there is question that this all in all included Judas.  However, only God himself can Judge Judas because although forgiveness was at hand by Christ, and although Judas was remorseful and knew he had sinned, it is not known if he actually repented to God or pleaded forgiveness for the sin before he took his own life.

 

PARALLELS OF JOSEPH AND JESUS

 

Now let’s reflect upon another event that involved different human elements to bring a Godly Outcome.  Joseph (Genesis 37) who was almost killed by his brothers but instead sold into slavery.  This act by Joseph’s siblings was horrific.  However, we later learn that Joseph, because of his gift to interpret dreams and prophesy, was made Chancellor over Egypt by Pharaoh. Joseph told Pharaoh of a coming drought; and that there would be seven years of plenteous prior to a 7 years of drought. Joseph was given charge over the savings during this time of plenteous; and to distribute the savings to people including his own people, the children of Israel, his brothers.

 

So was this the hand of God? Was God using man’s bad and good hearted actions to save Israel from desolation and death?

The story involves elements of:

  1. Joseph, the dream interpreter (His father made him a coat of many colors)
  2. Joseph’s jealous brothers, whose envy over their father’s love for their 2nd to the youngest brother, drove them to hate and contempt for him.
  3. Egypt: Pharaoh, and Potiphar.
  4. Jacob/House of Israel.
  5. God and the drought

So the story, when you read from the beginning to the end, seems to imply that God himself had a plan and used man’s nature to work it out.  To many times, no-believers chalk this up to coincidence. Understandable since they don’t know a God who watches over his people. This plan of God was to preserve Jacob (Israel) and his sons, the tribes of Israel, since Yeshua the Messiah came out of Israel and the Tribe of Judah

 

(For a better understanding see  Genesis 49 – The Blessing of the Sons of Jacob   4- (8-12) Judah: The scepter shall not depart from Judahhttp://biblehub.com/commentaries/guzik/commentaries/0149.htm

When we examine the story, we don’t come away with “which tribe is to blame for almost killing Joseph.” No, we see the end results of the story and are awed by its outcome because of the entire scenario of the entire plan (As we will see with the Crucifixion of Christ).

Judah seems to base his argument against killing Joseph on the factor of expediency. It is not profitable to kill him for then we will have to cover his blood i.e. endure the burden of maintaining a cover up. However, after proposing to sell Joseph to the Ishmaelites, (Gen 37: 27) Judah offers what seems to be a second reason: for he is our brother our flesh. He then made a profitable deal by selling him for twenty shekels. This was the going rate of a slave in the day.

The Brothers, led by Judah, repented for selling their sibling.  The Jews are not taunted and hated today for this selfish act as they repented and the outcome was on the behalf of the future of Israel; AND the fact that Joseph forgave their heart at the time up in the light of their repented hearts and the outcome.

So the two stories are parallel wherein the events verses the outcome by more than one element was brought about by a Godly outcome.

When prophecy is studied we see concerning the coming of Jesus and his purpose to die to save the World and wherein the purpose lay as in Isa 53:1-12:

  • He grew up as a tender root.
  • Was not good to look on (no beauty in his appearance).
  • He became despised and rejected of man.
  • He bore our griefs and sorrows.
  • Wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities.
  • Oppressed and afflicted and he opened up not his mouth.
  • Taken from prison and judgement
  • Cut off from the land of the living.
  • His grave was made with the wicked.
  • Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him and make him an offering for sin.
  • Divided a portion with the great and divide the spoil with the strong.
  • He bore the sins of many and made intercession for the transgressors.
  • With his stripes, we were healed.

Now we understand that Jesus, who was Jewish, was the Lamb of God (JOHN 1:36).  This lamb is signified as the Pascal Lamb, the unblemished lamb that required to be sacrificed at Passover. (The Passover was a foreshadow of Jesus’ sacrifice, yet to come.) The accusation of Jesus and Trial took place just prior to the Passover and AFTER the day the select lamb was to b brought into the house (Temple) for sacrifice.

However, God required the House to be rid of ALL leaven. A ritual performed even today is the 10 pieces of leaven (Chametz) and the father and the children on each Passover eve, find the 10 pieces and cast it out of the house.  This was demonstrated by Christ when he threw the money changers out of the house of his Father (the Temple).

The biblical regulations for the observance of the festival require that all leavening be disposed of before the beginning of the 15th of Nisan[14] An unblemished lamb or goat, known as the Korban Pesach or “Paschal Lamb”, is to be set apart on Nisan 10,[15] and slaughtered at dusk as Nisan 14 ends in preparation for the 15th of Nisan when it will be eaten after being roasted.[16] The literal meaning of the Hebrew is “between the two evenings”.[17] It is then to be eaten “that night”, Nisan 15,[18http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passover

 

BEHOLD THE KING COMETH! King Cometh

On Palm Sunday, Christians celebrate the day when Jesus rode the donkey into the city of Jerusalem to the temple, surrounded by the lambs that were raised for slaughter as the Sacrifice, the Pascal Lambs. (Luke 19:32-40) This was signifying the prophecy of the Coming of the Messiah foretold in:

Zec_9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Point and Case, if the Pascal lamb is to be offered up who is the priestly people to offer it up to God. Originally it was the Levite tribe, however the tribes at the time of Jesus were of Judah and Benjamin and together they form what we know as the Jews.

So as the event played out the Jews were unknowingly playing out their role as the priestly people and were unaware that they were performing the long time ritual of offering the Pascal Lamb up to God.

John 12:31  Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. 33  This he said, signifying what death he should die.

Therefore, the blame is not to be put on the Jews today as the” Replacement Theorists” so well taught through their mighty branches of Christianity. There is nothing in the Bible that states that the Jews were cursed for all time for the Crucifixion of Jesus.

 

 

II. WHO, THEN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST?

 Passion of Christ

When Mel Gibson’s, The Passion of the Christ was released, it caused much controversy.  First, because of the intense beating, torture and scourging given to Jesus.  When asked why he felt that he needed to be so violent with the beating of Christ scene, Gibson’s comment, was that we as Christians take it for granted exactly what he went through even before death.

Isa 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

The Beating and scourging the Gospels describe on paper seems to be more suggestive and the pain is not felt by most.  However, the picture (worth a thousand words) of the torture and tormenting was more viable in presenting a more exact picture what Jesus went through.

 

Another part of the controversy of the film was that it came off promoting that the Jews (All Jews) were responsible, as if to say . . . “see what your people did?” . . . and because the Jews were responsible they should feel more remorse.

I’ve heard in more than one interview with everyday people, their answer as who they feel was responsible:

  • The Jews (the then corrupted leaders of the Sanhedrin).
  • The Romans.
  • and last, the best of all: We humans are the reason and all of us are responsible. He did it for mankind, past, present and future and for this reason he was chastised and scourged for our sins

Now that we’ve examined the facts, we can see that it was all-inclusive of the above, whereas with Joseph, his family and Egypt, human nature and decisions played into the plan of the Lord, God of Israel.   Selah

 

CATHOLIC CHURCH CHANGING?

PopesBlessing the People

Redemption Is Given To Non Believers In The Name Of Lucifer!

Off and on during my lifetime, I’ve heard harbinger tellers proclaim that the Catholic Church is the Harlot and the Pope is the Antichrist.

We know that as early as the 16th Century, Martin Luther was the first to publicly challenge the Roman Catholic Church by posting on the Portals of the German, All Saints’ Church, Wittenberg (also known as the Reformation Memorial Church) his famous 95 theses for the practicing of the selling of indulgences to absolve sin. Copies in a pamphlet form spread throughout all of Europe.  He also declares that the Pope doesn’t have the right to interpret scripture.  Although Luther never thought his document would cause so much controversy,  the Lord was supportive and used him as a lighting conductor of the wrong doings and his Spirit made the information spread like wildfire, as only He does when his Word is abused.

2 Thessalonians 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

The Catholic Church for centuries has reached out to recruit pagan cultures; always morphing their ordinances as a part of the Church Ordinances and artifacts. Many of these pagans were Sun worshipers, which originated with Nimrod, who later became named as the god Baal and his “virgin” birth son, Tammuz from Nimrod’s wife Semiramis.  Semiramis was a harlot at the time Nimrod met her but claimed her to be a virgin since it would not look right to have a harlot seated on the throne of Nimrod’s kingdom.

Differences in the Catholic Church and the Reformation, Protestants.

  • We should not bow down to idols (statues) Exodus 20:4-5. The Roman Catholic Church promotes statues in every church of Mary, Christ and the Apostles, to pray to.

IDOLATRY is the worship of an idol or a physical object as a representation of a god. In all the Abrahamic religions idolatry is strongly forbidden, although views as to what constitutes idolatry differ within and between them. In other religions the use of idols is accepted. Which images, ideas, and objects constitute idolatry is often a matter of considerable contention.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idolatry

  • All have sinned except Jesus : Romans 3:10-12/Hebrews 4:15. The Roman Catholic Church teaches that also Mary was sinless.
  • Jesus is the only mediator between God and man. 1 Timothy 2:5. The Roman Catholic Church teaches that Mary is Co-Mediator with Christ.
  • Christ offered himself on the Cross once and for all. Hebrews 7:27/Hebrews 10:10.  The Roman Catholic Church teaches that the Priests  perpetually offer Christ on the Cross at every Mass.
  • All Christians are saints. Ephesians 1; 1 Peter 2. Roman Catholic Church says that saints are a special cast within the Christian Community.
  • All Christians should know that they have eternal life. 1 John 5:13. Roman Catholic churches that all Christians cannot and should not know that they have eternal life.
  • Call no man (religious leader) Father. Matthew 23:9. Roman Catholic Church proclaims that we should call the Pope and Priests, Father (the Pope as Holy Father).
  • Not to pray in vain repetition. Matthew 6:7. Roman Catholic Church says that we should say the Lord’s Prayer, hail Mary, and other written prayers repeatedly (usage of rosary beads for counting)
  • Confess our sins t God for God only can forgive us of sin. Isaiah 43; Luke 5:24. The Roman Catholic Church proclaims that you must confess your sins to the priests for forgiveness..
  • Teach of Purgatory, Limbo, prayers for the dead are found nowhere in the scriptures, these are doctrines of the Papacy. “In vain they do worship me, teaching as doctrines, the commandments of men. Mark 7:7.

“Whosoever calls himself, or desires to be called, Universal Priest, is in his elation the precursor of antichrist.”Gregory the Great (ca. 540–604), in his official correspondence.  Antichrists as used by 1 John 1:7  is one who opposes (who teaches against the teachings of Christ ) the Messiah, Christ; and yet with the article “the” can mean one who is instead of Christ.

 

Since the latter days of the family from Eden, oracles of God and his word were verbally passed down from Seth; who was the third son of Adam and Eve.

Unlike Cain’s descendants, Seth’s prove faithful to God. From Seth come the patriarchs, the nation of Israel, and eventually Christ. And it’s Christ who not only destroys Satan but also condemns sin and death (Luke 3:23–38). It was through Seth that the “Offspring of the Woman” came who would crush the serpent’s head (Genesis 3:15).”

WHO WAS SETH IN THE BIBLE? http://www.gotquestions.org/Seth-in-the-Bible.html

The teachings of Seth were passed on through the Mazzaroth, the Hebrew version of the Zodiac. Each sign beginning with Virgo to Leo told the story of God’s plan, the final Leo, the Lion, and God’s conquering Christ. In those days fathers would lay on their rooftops at night and teach their sons  of the plan of God through the Mazzaroth. Long before air conditioning, it was cooler in the spring and summer times at night and the families would not only sleep there, but they would also worshiped God and eventually it became the place where pagan gods were worshiped as well.

They removed the roof above Jesus

Posted on February 23, 2011

The following paragraph by M. J. Selman in the New Bible Dictionary, 3rd ed., provides a good summary about houses in Bible times.

 “The family would often sleep on the roof in summer or use it to dry raisins, figs, flax, etc., in the sun. A parapet was to be built as a safety precaution according to Deuteronomy 22:8. Vaulted roofs were certainly in use in Palestine by the Persian period, while the tiled roof also appeared before NT times. The rooftop was also a place of worship, either for Baal and especially the host of heaven (Jeremiah 19:13; Zephaniah 1:5), or for the true God (Acts 10:9). “https://ferrelljenkins.wordpress.com/2011/02/23/they-removed-the-roof-above-jesus/

Deuteronomy 22:8  When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence.

Jeremiah 19:13  And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.

Zephaniah 1:5  And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham;

Acts 10:9  On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:

The Teachings of Seth were passed down to the times of Nimrod, who like Lucifer made it about himself and taught a pagan version of Seth’s teachings, building shrines and statues, which were always forbidden.   Nimrod at this time became the father of Paganism.

Genesis 10:8  And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.9  He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.

Gen 11:1  And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar [see note below] ; and they dwelt there. 3  And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5  And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6  And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8  So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9  Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

[note] Smith’s Bible Dictionary Shinar

(country of two rivers), the ancient name of the great alluvial tract through which the Tigris and Euphrates pass before reaching the sea –the tract known in later times as Chaldaea or Babylonia. It was a plain country, where brick had to be used for stone and slime for mortar. (Genesis 11:3) Among the cities were Babel (Babylon), Erech or Orech (Orchoe), Calneh or Calno (probably Niffer), and Accad, the site of which is unknown. It may be suspected that Shinar was the name by which the Hebrews originally knew the lower Mesopotamian country where they so long dwelt, and which Abraham brought with him from “Ur of the Chaldees.”  http://biblehub.com/topical/s/shinar.htm

So after the scattering, with the grouping of similar languages, the clusters of people became societies and lands of nations which told in verbal forms or pictorial figures, on cave and temple walls, the stories which they were taught about of God’s plan in time through the Mazzaroth. These became distorted because of Nimrod’s teachings, and what is not realized is that their Myths, as we call them, were not original. Nimrods’ people later attributed this plan to him (Nimrod) as the father god, Baal, Tammuz , the resurrected son, and Semiramis, the virgin mother.  These were stories of God’s plan and his prophesies given to man, about them and their progressions of life in time; which debunks the theories that Christianity was stolen from earlier myths and religions.

The idea I’m picturing here is sort of the same significance as Jesus being (both) the ROOT and the OFFSPRING of David.  (Revelation 22:16). Therefore, Christianity the fruition of the original plan God spoke to Seth; and this would culminate to Christ. Therefore his coming is the original idea plagiarized by these once Babylonians (actually the land of Shinar) descendants and not Christianity.  (Babylon was not the name at the time but was the land of Shinar, where the city and the tower of Babel were, and  although not by that name then but was named Babylon in the 18th century BC, and is now occupied as Iraq and was so called Babylon because of the Tower and babbling languages),

This paganism was passed down through history and when Christ came to start his church, the disciples witnessed to the pagans, explaining from where their gods came. When they got to Athens, they discovered a monument that the Athenians built to the god with No Name. When Paul went to Mars Hill, he saw these statues commemorating all of the known gods and commented about this unknown one.

Acts 17:22 . Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.

 Paul then taught them about YHVH (THE LORD) and his son Jesus Christ.

 THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FROM ROME BEGINS TO PROCLAIM THEIR THE ORIGIN OR CHRISTIANITY

At first, Christians continued to worship alongside Jewish believers, which historians refer to as Jewish Christianity, but within twenty years of Jesus’s death, Sunday was being regarded as the primary day of worship.[26] As preachers such as Paul of Tarsus began converting Gentiles, Christianity began growing away from Jewish practices[21] to establish itself as a separate religion,[27] though the issue of Paul of Tarsus and Judaism is still debated today. To resolve doctrinal differences among the competing factions within the Church, in or around the year 50, the apostles convened the first Church council, the Council of Jerusalem. This council affirmed that Gentiles could become Christians without adopting all of the Mosaic Law.[5] Growing tensions soon led to a starker separation that was virtually complete by the time Christians refused to join in the Bar Kokhba Jewish revolt of 132,[28] however some groups of Christians retained elements of Jewish practice.[29]

The early Christian Church was very loosely organized, resulting in diverse interpretations of Christian beliefs.[30] In part to ensure a greater consistency in their teachings, by the end of the 2nd century Christian communities had evolved a more structured hierarchy, with a central bishop having authority over the clergy in his city,[31] leading to the development of the Metropolitan bishop. The organization of the Church began to mimic that of the Empire; bishops in politically important cities exerted greater authority over bishops in nearby cities.[32] The churches in Antioch, Alexandria, and Rome held the highest positions.[33] Beginning in the 2nd century, bishops often congregated in regional synods to resolve doctrinal and policy issues.[5] Duffy claims that by the 3rd century, the bishop of Rome began to act as a court of appeals for problems that other bishops could not resolve.[6]

Doctrine was further refined by a series of influential theologians and teachers, known collectively as the Church Fathers.[34] From the year 100 onward, proto-orthodox teachers like Ignatius of Antioch and Irenaeus defined Catholic teaching in stark opposition to other things, such as Gnosticism.[35] In the first few centuries of its existence, the Church formed its teachings and traditions into a systematic whole under the influence of theological apologists such as Pope Clement I, Justin Martyr and Augustine of Hippo.[36]

Terms: The Vatican, The Holy See And the Papal States:

Vatican City (ˈvætɨkən ˈsɪti/); ItalianCittà del Vaticano [tʃitˈta del vatiˈkaːno]LatinCivitas Vaticana),[d] officially the Vatican City State (Italian: Stato della Città del Vaticano;[e] Latin: Status Civitatis Vaticanae),[f] is a walledenclave within the city of Rome. With an area of approximately 44 hectares (110 acres), and a population of 842,[3]it is the smallest internationally recognized independent state in the world by both area and population . . . . .

 . . . It is an ecclesiastical[3] or sacerdotalmonarchical[7] state ruled by the Bishop of Rome – the Pope. The highest state functionaries are all Catholic clergy of various national origins. Since the return of the Popes from Avignon in 1377, they have generally resided at the Apostolic Palace within what is now Vatican City, although at times residing instead in the Quirinal Palace in Rome or elsewhere.

The Papal States were territories in the Italian Peninsula under the sovereign direct rule of the pope, from the 700s until 1870. They were among the major states of Italy from roughly the eighth century until the Italian Peninsula was unified in 1861 by the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia. At their zenith, they covered most of the modern Italian regions of Lazio (which includes Rome), MarcheUmbria and Romagna, and portions of Emilia. These holdings were considered to be a manifestation of the temporal power of the pope, as opposed to his ecclesiastical primacy. After 1861, the Papal States, reduced to Lazio, continued to exist until 1870. Between 1870 and 1929, the pope had no physical territory at all. Eventually Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolinisolved the crisis between modern Italy and the Vatican, and, in 1929, the Vatican City State was grantedsovereignty.

The Holy See (LatinSancta Sedes; Ecclesiastical Latin: [ˈsaŋkta ˈsedes]) is the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of theCatholic Church in Rome, the episcopal see of the Bishop of Rome—the Pope. It is the central point of referencefor the church everywhere and the focal point of communion due to its prominence. It traces its origin to theapostolic era, when Saint Peter arrived in Rome to evangelize, thus forming a community of believers there which maintained a significant Christian presence. Today, it is responsible for the governance of the faithful, organized in their local Christian communities.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_See

 

Vicar of Christ (from Latin Vicarius Christi) is the term used in different ways, with different theological connotations throughout history. As the original notion a vicar is of “earthly representative of God or Christ” but also used in sense of “person acting as parish priest in place

of a real parson”[1] The title is now used inCatholicism to refer to the bishops[2] and more specifically to the Bishop of Rome (the pope).[3]

 

ARE CHRIST BELIEVERS OUTSIDE THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH SAVED?

For many years the Vatican made no public statement in regards to this question, although the people of their congregation proclaimed it often as they were taught it in their catechism:

catechism definition – Google Search

cat·e·chism noun: catechism; plural noun: catechisms. A summary of the principles of Christian religion in the form of questions and answers, used for the instruction of Christians. A series of fixed questions, answers, or precepts used for instruction in other situations..

However, now Pope Francis has announced that the answer to that question is NO!

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9

Pope Francis gave a sermon on June 25th, 2014 in Rome, where he dispelled any and all lingering doubt about how the Vatican views worldwide Christianity. Francis once again declared his unshakable belief that the Roman Catholic Holy Mother Church – the very same one mentioned in Revelation 17 & 18 as the ‘Whore of Babylon’ – is the one and the only church. Listen to Pope Francis as he tells you in his own words exactly what he thinks of all Christian churches outside of the Roman Catholic Church:

From: NOW THE END BEGINS where you can see for yourself his views on the question.

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=22947

And yet, on the other hand Pope Francis also made this statement on May 22nd, 2013.

Pope Francis: Even Atheists Can Be Redeemed

In a passage inspired by the Gospel of Mark, Pope Francis said:

“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class. We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all. And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: We need that so much. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: We will meet one another there.”

Headlines across the world immediately proclaimed, “Even Atheists Can Go To Heaven.”

http://www.npr.org/sections/parallels/2013/05/29/187009384/Pope-Francis-Even-Atheists-Can-Be-Redeemed

However, Jesus Stated in John

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

This is straight out of the mouth of Jesus/Yeshua, and yet he mentions nothing about works, only believe. Therefore the Atheist who spends his/her life doing good but doesn’t believe in God and His Christ, are saved by his/her own works?  It’s true that our works count for God’s blessing on us; and works from our faith are living proof of our belief;  but works alone being good or doing good things (as the Pope states) does not save us.  Jesus said in Mark 10:18 & Luke 18:19 “No one is good – except God alone”, which leaves out a good man being saved. Jesus declared in John 14:5: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Therefore the Pope cannot be right when he alludes to (the act of) Jesus’ spilt blood is the saving grace for ALL MEN because according to John 3:16 we have to ACT upon that verse and BELIEVE.

Therefore good works, doing good without believing in God through Jesus cannot get a man redeemed by God. The sacrifice of Jesus for the world is the only WAY to salvation and is like a trust fund in a bank account. If it’s not drawn upon, it does not come to fulfillment for the individual.

WHO IS LUCIFER AND WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO DO WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?

Lucifer (/ˈlʲuːsɪfər/ lew-sif-ər) is the King James Version rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵלin Isaiah 14:12. This word, transliterated hêlêl[1] or heylel,[2] occurs only once in the Hebrew Bible[1] and according to the KJV based Strong’s Concordance means “shining one, morning star”.[2] The word Lucifer is taken from the Latin Vulgate,[3] which translates הֵילֵלaslucifer,[Isaiah14:12][4][5] meaning “the morning star, the planet Venus“, or, as an adjective, “light-bringing”.[6] The Septuagint renders הֵילֵל in Greek as ἑωσφόρος[7][8][9][10][11](heōsphoros),[12][13][14] a name, literally “bringer of dawn”, for the morning star.[15]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer

 

Hence many cultists believe that Lucifer is the dawning of awareness and through him mankind will attain enlightenment of heaven and earth.

God speaks to Satan, the adversary through the King of Tyrus (aka: Tyre). The king not only had Godly connections but the Lord was speaking to his Adversary through this king, as he did with Peter (Matthew 16:23).

Ezekiel 28:13  Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. (The serpent,  apparently was the host of Lucifer/Satan) 14  Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire (Stars/Angels) . 15  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16  By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17  Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18  Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

Eze28:19  All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

 The passage of Isaiah below tells us of the personality, the heart and the actions of Lucifer, who seems to be the same individual who the Lord told Ezekiel to speak to (above).

Isaiah14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16  They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; 17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

 18  All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. 19  But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. 20  Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned. 21  Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities. 22  For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD. 23  I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

24  The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: 25  That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. 26  Thisis the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. 27  For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it?and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? 28  In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.

29  Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. 30  And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant. 31  Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times. 32  What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.

Lucifer was a Cherubim 

cherub (/ˈtʃɛrəb/;[1] also pl. cherubimHebrew כְּרוּב, pl. כְּרוּבִים, English transkərūv, pl. kərūvîm, dual kərūvāyimLatin cherub, pl. cherubin, cherubimSyriacܟܪܘܒܐ), is a winged angelic being who is considered to attend on the Abrahamic God in biblical tradition. The concept is represented in ancient Middle Easternart as a lion or bull with eagles’ wings and a human face, and regarded in traditional Christian angelology as an angel of the second highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy.[2] Cherubim are mentioned throughout the Hebrew Bible and once in the New Testament in reference to the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant (Hebrews 9:5)

In regards to the above definition, the Catholic Church has taught that Michael, Raphael and Gabriel are Archangels. However, there are no references to that title in the Bible; and these are defined by the religious traditions of men. Nonetheless, Lucifer/Satan is believed to be one of the two Angels depicted on the ARK of the Covenant, guarding and watching over the Mercy Seat, which eventually Christ blood was spilt upon for the means of Salvation for those who come to the Lord. The Ark of the Covenant is a resemblance of the mercy seat in Heaven where Christ now sits.

Many groups and organizations cling to the idea of Lucifer having been the Light Barer.  They have resided that there is absolutely no tie with Satan and that they two are not the same being.  One is H.P. Blavatsky in her Book, The Secret Doctrines.

Now let us take a look at some of the statements HPB made about Lucifer in “The Secret Doctrine”…

* “Esoteric philosophy admits neither good nor evil per se, as existing independently in nature. The cause for both is found, as regards the Kosmos, in the necessity of contraries or contrasts, and with respect to man, in his human nature, his ignorance and passions. There is no devil or the utterly depraved, as there are no Angels absolutely perfect, though there may be spirits of Light and of Darkness; thus LUCIFER – the spirit of Intellectual Enlightenment and Freedom of Thought – is metaphorically the guiding beacon, which helps man to find his way through the rocks and sandbanks of Life, for Lucifer is the LOGOS in his highest, and the “Adversary” in his lowest aspect – both of which are reflected in our Ego.” (Vol. 2, p. 162)

2 John 1:7  For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist [not THE Antichrist]. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

Matthew 7:15 – Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

2 Corinthians 11:12  But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them ( those who preach a different gospel than Paul preached- verse 4) which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. 13  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light . 15  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Paul was concerned about those Gnostic’s teaching in his day as they were perverting the Word of God, he warned that even if an Angel teaches a different Gospel, for us to beware. We’ve had religions built on the word or teaching from an angel, who appeared as an angel of light, proclaiming that God had made a mistake and was changing his Word.  Although these teach that men who followed God made the difference, leave out the fact that God is unchanging and is faithful to his word. As posted in another blog, I must remind the reader that God does not replace his people with another people or religion; that is a sign of man’s way and not God’s

Gal 1:6  I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7  Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9  As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

 

 Now the Leader of the Catholic Church is declaring that Lucifer is God and that Jesus Christ is his son.

The Two Beasts of Revelation 13:
The Antichrist and the False Prophet
by Sherry Shriner

“The scarlet colored beast is no doubt religion, full of names of blasphemy. One thinks of the Vatican with all their blasphemous titles of the Pope. The USA has replaced being founded on God and the Constitution with the Talmud and the NWO.  And it is the Talmudic Noahide Laws, which former President George Bush Senior declared our country was based on that will give them the authority to behead anyone who worships Jesus Christ, Yahushua the Son of God (whenever they start to enforce it). In the Talmud Jesus represents idol worship, and idolatry is punishable by beheading.”

      It is also the Talmud on which the Vatican is now based. It is the Vatican which controls most governments of the world. However, notice the first beast of Revelation is sitting on the second beast. The first beast is not the Vatican but as we will see, the first beast is Babylon, the USA and it sits on the Vatican…or will it move to Islam?

Pope Francis Declares Lucifer As God

Published on Jul 4, 2014

“Pope Francis and the Vatican has introduced the world to their god they been worshiping all along, Lucifer. According to Pope Francis and the Catholic Church, The Morning Star is the creator of the world and the father of Christ. He brought “light” to the human race.”

“This announced was made to the world April 27th, 2014 during a ceremony where Pope John Paul the 1st and Pope john Paul the 2nd.This declaration is unprecedented and should cause concern to the world. It’s no coincidence that the first Jesuit Pope would make such a shocking statement. He has been overhauling the Vatican since he got in. So far he has said Athiest will enter heaven as long as they do good works. He also stated Jesus is just a man and prays to the father and he is a co-mediator with mother Mary between God and man.”

This is their new statement made during Mass and other ceremonies:

“His flame dawning his own son
May, I say to you O’ lucifer who knows no setting
Christ is your son who came back from the dead
and shed his light to the human race
and is alive and reigns for ever and ever”

This is video of that Mass and it has gone viral on the internet.

“END TIMES- END OF THE WORLD” IN THE AIR, ONCE AGAIN.

BloodMoons

Often we see in the news, or on the internet, announcements that the World is  coming to an End on a specific date.

The first time I remember seeing this in mainstream Christianity was in 1988 when a popular book surfaced entitled:“88 Reasons Why The Rapture will be in 1988”.  I remember that our local Church was buzzing with expectation.  Our Pastor & his wife gave their comments on the event by advising us that we should not be so quick and hasty to do unwise things; because many were talking about selling their homes and giving the money to the poor who would be left behind.

The Pastor advise us that we should pray and not be too quick; and to remember that Christ said that no man knows the day and hour (Mat 24:36).   The Pastor’s advice was well received and it’s a good thing because the rapture did not happen in 1988.

Mat 24:36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no  man,no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT ISRAEL

IsrealWildernessWhen you examine the Bible, you see the main characters are GOD (his Christ), Satan (his Antichrist, i.e. instead of Christ), Israel, and the nations who bless or curse her people or her land.  We Christians try to make it all about us and yes, although we are saved by the blood and Grace of Jesus (Yeshua), we are grafted into that Olive Tree through Jesus Christ.

The Olive Tree represents the Spiritual Promises made to Abraham by God, who through Jesus Christ is also the root of this tree, as well as the branch and off spring of David. This, as Paul calls it, is the Commonwealth of Israel.

               Commonwealth: an independent country or community, especially a democratic republic.
