God Does Not Stretch The Truth

Scholars at a Lecture – Etched in 1736

An Open Mind is Key
Flush Your Mind’s Beliefs

Many gifted scholars used to believe (and some still do) that prophecy was mostly symbolic. However many recent scholars have shifted to the opposite side of the spectrum and now embrace the “literal” interpretations.  In my humble belief, taking either side has flaws.  Here are some of my thoughts on this subject.

Take Nothing for Granted

In my studies, which continue daily, I’ve found some really amazing things. For example, the stuff that is prophesied by Jesus in Matt. 24 is a parallel to the stuff prophesied in Luke 21. They pretty much match. But in Matt 24, he says “and AFTER these things”, however in Luke 21 he (Jesus) says “but BEFORE these things”.  Then they list the stuff that happens (before and after).

  • False Christs … Matt. 24:4-5 … Luke 21:4
  • Wars … Matt. 24:6 … Luke 21:9-10
  • Famines … Matt. 24:7a … Luke 21:11
  • Death … Matt. 24:7b-8 … Luke 21:12
  • Martyrs … Matt. 24:9 … Luke 21:24
  • Global Chaos … Matt. 24:10-13 … Luke 21:25 

Since they both list the “same things” and one says before and the other says after – it means that they were talking about TWO DIFFERENT times in History. This is where so many scholars have gotten confused and think, for example, that Daniel’s 70 weeks have already passed. In fact they have not passed. The point it that some things did “happen in the past” and and some things are going to “happen in the future”. 

But particularly in our case … those living during the very END of times … we must be especially careful.  Because the past and the future become blurred.  Did it happen YESTERDAY?  Is it in the progress of happening NOW?  Watch out, you can get confused really fast.  Keep an open mind at all times.

The Purple People Eater Problem

Consider this song from the past.

“He was a one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater”
(repeat three times)

So let me ask you a question about these lyrics.

Did this creature eat people?  OR Did this creature ONLY eat “purple people”?  OR Did this creature only eat “purple people” that flew?

There are 3 possibilities.  We TEND to believe that this creature …

1. Flew through the Air
2. Was purple in color
3. And feasted on people

BUT … WHAT IF …

What if this creature was NOT purple?  What if this creature did NOT fly?  What if this creature ONLY ate “purple colored people that flew”?

GET IT?

God Is Incapable of Lying

Once you start discovering these “glorious” but subtle words in the Bible, and you take them seriously – some of the confusion goes away and you realize that God is telling 100% truth. When God says 1/3 of the fish in the sea are going to die, he isn’t lying. He MEANS IT.

But in all fairness you must ask yourself, what did he mean when he said “SEA”?  He didn’t say 1/3 of the fish in “all the oceans of the world” … did he?  He said “SEA”. God cannot lie … he is God. It is up to us to figure out the rest.

Wormwood Confusion

Many scholars have locked onto wormwood as possibly having been a thing of the past. For example, Chernobyl means “wormwood” and indeed the waters became poison and people died.  These similarities are amazing.

However in the wormwood prophecy, God makes it clear that a “star fell from the sky burning like a torch”.

Rev 8:10-11

10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

NKJV

These are not small things that the scholar may artistically overlook. AND when you carefully study the words like “in”, “like”, “before” and “after”, you start to see the hints that God has woven into the scripture that helps you see the real truth. Or perhaps come a little bit closer to what is likely the truth.

And watch OUT for duplicitous meanings.  Martin, one of Tribulation-Now’s key “email List members” and study partners (dare I say Bible expert), has found “dual-meanings” across the Bible that have me scratching my head every week.

Correlating the Enemy’s Movement

AND THEN, when you become truly “watchful” like a “watchman on the wall” and you study what is happening around you (the evil empire, and study the enemy’s movement, and what the enemy believes), you see correlation of events (even facts). When you can correlate what the enemy “whispers secretly to one another” with the truth of GOD – then you have a formula for success.

When you realize that the “enemy” is watching for the SAME THINGS that God prophesied in the Bible, you become “astonished”. The key difference between what the enemy believes and what God says is true, is that the enemy thinks THEY are going to win. “They” (the enemy) call God “Adonai” and they think he is a jackass. They think Lucifer is going to win in the end.

But they are WRONG and we KNOW IT

Then Enter the Internet

AND the Internet now makes it possible to know exactly what the enemy believes. Thousands of scholars throughout history did not have the tools we do today. I believe when the Bible says “knowledge increases” it definitely had the Internet in mind. 

What the enemy did NOT anticipate, is that their followers and minions would start publishing their “hidden secrets” on the Internet. The enemy SCREWED UP.  And that was a huge screw-up because they didn’t  anticipate that people would “copy their hidden books” and later defect to the Christian side.  They didn’t figure that their own followers would TATTLE TALE on them. 

Secrets Hidden in Vaults – Secrets from WHO?

Back when they (the enemy) wrote many of their “secret documents” they used to lock the books away in hiding places, caves, and vaults. (They STILL DO). They figured that if they hid away their secret books, then nobody but they would know what they were up to, or what was going to happen. 

The process of “canonizing” the scripture was laced with pagan influence.  The enemy (or arguably some “well meaning scholars” (perhaps influenced by the demonic) removed the Book of Enoch eventually, because it gave away TOO MANY secrets. Either they did not want us to know about these things or they simply refused to believe it themselves.  The Book of Enoch used to be part of the accepted and divine scripture and Word of God.  Today without the “Internet”, many people would be hard pressed to get a look at the book.

HINT:  Whenever the Bible mentions a key person (or prophet), or it mentions another “book of the Bible” that is not included in the “canon” – you best be suspicious.  This does not mean that what we have today is flawed – NO WAY.  This simply means there are other writings that probably should have been included and cannot be simply tossed aside if you want to know the “whole story”.

This is one of the reasons why the Vatican sent armies of Satanic Templar soldiers to Solomons’ “Temple” (temple = Templar). They knew Solomon became a leading sorcerer and demonist. They went to find as many of their sacred demonic writings as possible and hide them in the vaults of the Vatican. AND they did exactly that. The Vatican has the largest billion dollar repository of secret demonic writings in the World.

THEY DO NOT WANT US TO KNOW WHAT THEY KNOW!!

Frame of Reference is Critical

When you know all of these different “frames of reference” (Satanists beliefs, Christians beliefs, reports from Satanists that have turned born again Christians) and you can find the things they all “agree” on… you have BINGO! When both God’s enemies and God’s chosen people are pointing to the sky and saying LOOK THERE’S WORMWOOD – you better pay attention because they usually don’t agree. BUT when they do .. its PARTY TIME!

This is why I have been able to confirm many things have *not* happened yet and why I say the “jury is out” on many other things.

God Does Not Stretch the Truth. WE DO.

This is why I am so excited about starting fresh in my research. It OPENS your mind and admits we humans make mistakes. It humbles you. This is why I have mentally discarded any allegiance to things I strongly believed from past teachings. I no longer rely on ANYONE but God and my own research. As soon as someone tells me that “Mr. So-and-So” or “Pastor So-and-So” says this or that …. it throws up a RED Flag! As soon as a whole “group of believers” say “this is definitely going to happen” … it throws up a RED flag!

I “do” listen to lectures from many different sources, but NOT UNTIL I have completely “FLUSHED” everything out that I used to “believe” (minus Jesus). I always start with a completely clean chalkboard and believe NO ONE MAN (or group) ever.

That is one of the problems. We are so unwilling to trust our own interpretation and study of the scripture that we LEAN too strongly in favor of a single group of beliefs. We tend to follow teachers that “match” what we already think is going to happen. This is VERY BAD.

Are You Going to Miss Christ’s Return?

This is the exact reason why millions of Christians will become disillusioned and possibly miss out on eternity. Many people (even many Christians) will even miss Christ’s return – just like he said they would. It’s because their minds will be too focused on stuff they already think is fact. Their minds are made up! They will be waiting for one particular event to happen in prophecy that was WRONG. And Jesus is going to come, and they will be thinking – hey that couldn’t have been Jesus because “such and such” didn’t happen. That’s why the apostles did not even know Jesus after he rose from the dead and was walking and talking to them. They were not looking with their “spirit”, they were looking with their human “eyes”.

Flush the Prophetic Toilet

Its time to flush the prophetic toilet of all the tirds of speculation that have been floating around and wake up. Assume NOTHING.  Believe that Jesus is coming really soon. Keep and OPEN MIND. Watch & Pray. If you “watch & pray” but your mind is “made up” – your spirit will be deceived and you may miss the prize. You won’t lose your salvation, but you will likely go through things that you might otherwise have avoided.

KEEP AN OPEN MIND
Watch & Pray
IN JESUS NAME

The Enemy’s Multiple Personalities

Satan is Man / Satan is Woman
Confusion is King!

All throughout history, even back as far as 6,000 years plus, Satan has manifest himself in many different ways.  From the mystical writings found in Job about Leviathan, to the clay impressions of UFO “like” space craft on Sumerian tablets, we find endless “trickery and deceit”.

AND LOOK AT US

We are sheep.  Indeed gullible.  People are following many different “gods” across the world.  Even amongst the Christian ranks is confusion.  Deceit and confusion is the best weapon the enemy has.  The road to Heaven is laden with deceit and trickery.  There is only ONE WAY to Heaven and that is DIRECTLY through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and salvation through the forgiveness of SINS which can be given ONLY through the Father whoart in Heaven in “Jesus Name”.

Many are called and few are chosen.  Make sure YOU ARE CHOSEN and Jesus knows who you are when this all culminates in even greater confusion in the very near future.

Who is Lucifer / Who is Satan?

Here you see one of the leading Masons, indeed a forefather, letting their leaders worldwide know who they worship in their “religion”.

July 14, 1889Albert Pike issues instructions to the 23 Supreme Councils of the world. He reveals who is the true object of Masonic worship: “To you, Sovereign Grand Instructors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees: The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.”

– Quote from Morals and Dogma

Satan, the great deceiver, hides throughout history in many forms. Also Satan (Lucifer), is represented or “manifests” as ultimately a “hermaphrodite” having both sexes simultaneously – or indeed – also separately. This is important to understand when identifying the enemy for the lost. The Bible refers to the “sheep and goat” judgements. Christ is the “Lamb” of God, and we are the sons of God (brothers “in Christ”). The “goats” reference is the enemy of the Lamb that the Lamb will ultimately put under its foot in the end of this spiritual war. So if you search Google on the term “Baphomet” you will see the Satanic picture of a horned goat creature – indeed a “hermaphrodite” creature of both sexes.

Female Manifestations of Satan
This concept is important in order to grasp the significance of all the manifestations of Lucifer / Satan over history since ancient Egypt (and beyond). The Bible refers to the “god” Artemis in Acts 19:24-35. This is the goddess Diana. Ephesus had the largest worship temple to the goddess Diana (Artemis) in the world. The apostles were surrounded by demon worship and satanic ritual sacrifices in the temples of the enemy.

Female Manifestations of Satan Through History
Note: Often shown with baby “Tammuz” the Satanic forgery of Jesus
(see Ezekiel 8:14)

Diana is a female manifestation of Satan. So throughout history, as far back as ancient Egypt (an Ur), you have Semiramis (Queen to Nimrod), Isis, Diana (Artemis), and now today you have the “goddess” Diana manifest as the “goddess” Mary – Satanic queen and indeed the Whore of Babylon – the papal abomination. This “goddess” Isis/Diana/Mary will descend as the Whore of Babylon from the City with the 7 Hills, upon the Temple of Solomon ushering in “Apollyon” of 9:11.

Queen Semiramis, (Isis / Diana) to the Forgery of Mary
(Note the Crown on Mary, crowned as “goddess”)

In 431 A.D., Emperor Theodosius II, called a general church council at Ephesus to DEBATE if “The Virgin Mary” should be described as “The Mother of God” (“god”).  Two hundred Bishops attending this “Third Ecumenical Council” voted decidedly “yes”.  This was a ‘coup de gras’ for the Pagan influence embedded in the church and ultimately has led millions of followers to this heretical notion that it is okay to pray directly “TO” a saint.  Or pray directly to “Mary”. 

Note: Anyone who does not go directly to the “Father” whoart in Heaven, and ask for forgiveness is NOT forgiven of their sins.  Anyone who does not pray directly to the Father, whoart in heaven, is praying to an idol.  This is fornication in God’s eyes.  It is all throughout the Bible.  In fact, you are unwittingly praying to the “goddess” Semiramis, Isis, Diana / Artemis.

Satan is About to Be Born … Again!

Washington, DC / St. Peter’s Basilica / The Vatican

THIS IS WHY there is an “obelisk” and a “dome” located in the courtyard of the Vatican. The “obelisk” represents the male characteristic, and the “dome” (which is located atop of the actual Vatican) is the female characteristic. The “obelisk” will symbolically “impregnate” the dome (womb) and the goddess Semiramis / Isis / Diana (Artemis) / and Mary will emerge (be born) and take over the WORLD.

Important Note to the Reader:



This is not a slam on Mary.  She was the beloved and blessed virgin mother of Jesus.  These references to Mary (Isis / Diana / Artemis) are a SATANIC forgery that includes Mary as part of their vicious plan to mislead people into doing things they should not be doing.

Two Bible Verses to Ponder

Paul, when dealing with the Diana / Artemis worship problem was followed around by a possessed woman who performed divination for the merchants that sold Diana idols.  Here Paul tells the demons to “come out of her”.

Acts 16:18-19


But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities.



Then later in Revelation we see a similar use of the phrase “come out of her”:

Rev 18:4-6

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.

NKJV



I am drawing no particular conclusions with this article.
I am only leading those with “eyes to see and ears to hear” to the water of Life.

This is NOT an attack on the Catholics, but a wake up call.

This is REPROOF against the ultimate evil.  Satan and his minions.  Satan – who has infiltrated ALL RELIGIONS and it attempting to lead everyone straight to HELL.

Tribulation-Now
The Virtual Church

Some people on our email List have asked me about my real name.  I use “John Baptist” as a “nom de plume” or “pen name”. This is necessary because I work in a profession that searches the Internet routinely for information on people / employees (most do actually). My first name is John however. Eventually, if the Lord leads, I will surface some day and take a podium. But for now, this is a good place for me to lead people to Jesus.

I muse at myself quite frankly, because technically I am an ordained pastor.  I got so caught up in all this “worldly” stuff, I “paid money” to an organization to “ordain me” thinking it would add credibility somehow.  Silly me.  JESUS IS THE ONLY CREDENTIAL YOU NEED!!  He alone is the one that has the holy pen worthy enough to write your name in the Book of Life!

As you pursue various people’s thoughts on what is going to happen in 2012 (and beyond), be careful not to grab a hold of any one idea too tightly. Never be disappointed and always overcome.  You can believe as the “non de plume” behind Tribulation-Now, I hear “IT ALL”. And people’s beliefs and interpretations of the scripture are “all over the map”. When I realized the traditional “church” was missing all the excitement (by carrying on “business as usual”), I knew I had to step out and create a “virtual church”.

Welcome fellow members!
Our virtual “church” membership is now larger than many physical churches – PRAISE THE LORD!
We have fellow members and contributors from all over the world.
Europe, Africa, Japan – Everywhere!

PRAY AND PRAISE
PRAY AND PRAISE
Search the scriptures daily to see if it is TRUE (Acts 17:11)

Hosana means – SAVE NOW!

When things start to get even more challenging in the near future, remember the word HOSANA!  Yell it OUT LOUD!

This is what people were yelling out to Jesus as he came into Jerusalem during his triumphal entry (which ultimately put him to tears of sadness).  Let’s make sure THIS TIME he is truly happy and gets the PRAISE HE DESERVES!

A Forthcoming Ambush

Most people do not bother to study the enemy’s movements. I think this is a big flaw. A lot of Christian leadership fail to understand what having “eyes to see and ears to hear” and “being wise as serpents” actually means. They squabble endlessly about what the prophecies mean, thinking their theological interpretations of “types and shadows” and “law vs. grace” is unflawed.  Many traditional churches even avoid talking about this information at all.  They talk about only the “good stuff” while the enemy lays a huge trap. They are afraid to “scare away” their congregations who have “itchy ears” and avoid sound doctrine.  Where are the FIRE AND BRIMSTONE leaders of yesterday?  They do their followers a serious injustice.  Many will be caught unaware.

2 Tim 4:3-5

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine [nothing scary, only the happy stuff] , but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

NKJV

The traditional church is about to get “gobbled up” in an enormous ambush caught completely unaware.  Think 501c3.  Think George W. Bush and Obama’s new “Faith Based Initiatives”.  These are pacts with the DEVIL.  It is a freight train heading right at them.

Measure Everything Against Scripture

Always “measure” everything against the scripture. Keep in mind, the “abomination of desolation” has not taken his place as the world leader and there is no Daniel 9:27 “covenant with Israel” signed as of yet. The “Magog” invasion of Ezekiel is forthcoming. Damascus has yet to be laid to “rubble”.  Much is yet to unfold before all this occurs.

Some think that 2012 is going to shock the world and possibly be the end. Some think it is going to be the time of “wormwood” and a comet will fall from the heavens (popular amongst the Seventh Day Adventists). I personally only know this …. there is much more to come! More than can occur in 2 years time. I believe we have barely entered the “Beginning of Sorrows” of Matthew 24 (just my estimation – not divine in nature – at least as far as I know Praise God!). My best guess, based on the movement of the enemy, is that 2012 is the beginning of the “new age” of Satan. It is likely there will be some pretty amazing “cosmic” stuff that happens in December of 2012. Stay braced for one HECK of a ride.

What will I be doing on December 21st of 2012?

Personally I plan to have the PRAISE MUSIC up LOUD and be praising the Lord with “all my might!”
I’m going to THROW a PRAISE JESUS PARTY!  You are all welcome to join me!

But also keep in mind, the enemy does NOT want us to know what they are doing. They fear the Christians that have the power of the Holy Spirit. They know what YHWH God is capable of and they want to bring forth their “desolation” to entrap us. They dare to “call YHWH’s bluff”.  We will see if The Almighty El Elyon permits that to happen.  There is much reason to rejoice that the Lord Your God has chosen YOU to be one of the ELECT.  The very fact you are a member of this “virtual church”, separates you from the rest.

Your Final Report Card is What Matters

It doesn’t matter how you did in 7th grade.  Rest assured you are now in the upper 2% of your graduating class.  This is what the Bible means when it refers to the “overcomers“.  The next time you leave your house, look around you.  Look at the thousands of lost souls that have NO IDEA all this is happening right now.  Give yourself some credit.  Praise the Lord, you are graduating with HONORS!

See you at the Marriage Supper
Since God is timeless and not in this dimension, it is very likely we will all “arrive” at exactly the same time!!
PRAISE JESUS!

Catholic Church Says Bible No Longer Truthful

WARNING OF DARK TIMES TO COME
Below is a reprint of the the article shown above from the Times Online entitled “Catholic Church no longer swears by the truth of the Bible”.  While there are outstanding Catholic Christians all over the world who I will be proud to stand beside in heaven, this is yet one more example of the dark times we face in the near future.  Because the Vatican is the most wealthy and arguably the most influential global spiritual leader, it is most troubling to know they have been compromised by darkness (like many churches) from the inside.  Many argue convincingly this organization is heavily infiltrated by Satanists in the upper ranks.  Even the famous and excellent Father Malachi Martin admitted the organization :flies the enemy’s flag” and is ruled by the forces of darkness.  Not only is the Vatican leading the “ecumenical charge” of accepting “all faiths” into a single one-world religion (ultimately under the forthcoming Antichrist), but here you see yet another example of this organization’s erosion of the Bible as the irrefutable Word of God.  This is only the beginning of dreadful things to come as we move deeper into the beginning of the Tribulation and closer to the “Great Delusion”. 
God Bless You and Be Unshakable in Your Faith
Catholic Church no longer swears by truth of the Bible
By Ruth Gledhill, Religion Correspondent
THE hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has published a teaching document instructing the faithful that some parts of the Bible are not actually true.

The Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland are warning their five million worshippers, as well as any others drawn to the study of scripture, that they should not expect “total accuracy” from the Bible.

“We should not expect to find in Scripture full scientific accuracy or complete historical precision,” they say in The Gift of Scripture.

The document is timely, coming as it does amid the rise of the religious Right, in particular in the US.

Some Christians want a literal interpretation of the story of creation, as told in Genesis, taught alongside Darwin’s theory of evolution in schools, believing “intelligent design” to be an equally plausible theory of how the world began.

But the first 11 chapters of Genesis, in which two different and at times conflicting stories of creation are told, are among those that this country’s Catholic bishops insist cannot be “historical”. At most, they say, they may contain “historical traces”.

The document shows how far the Catholic Church has come since the 17th century, when Galileo was condemned as a heretic for flouting a near-universal belief in the divine inspiration of the Bible by advocating the Copernican view of the solar system. Only a century ago, Pope Pius X condemned Modernist Catholic scholars who adapted historical-critical methods of analysing ancient literature to the Bible.

In the document, the bishops acknowledge their debt to biblical scholars. They say the Bible must be approached in the knowledge that it is “God’s word expressed in human language” and that proper acknowledgement should be given both to the word of God and its human dimensions.
They say the Church must offer the gospel in ways “appropriate to changing times, intelligible and attractive to our contemporaries”.

The Bible is true in passages relating to human salvation, they say, but continue: “We should not expect total accuracy from the Bible in other, secular matters.”
They go on to condemn fundamentalism for its “intransigent intolerance” and to warn of “significant dangers” involved in a fundamentalist approach.
“Such an approach is dangerous, for example, when people of one nation or group see in the Bible a mandate for their own superiority, and even consider themselves permitted by the Bible to use violence against others.”

Of the notorious anti-Jewish curse in Matthew 27:25, “His blood be on us and on our children”, a passage used to justify centuries of anti-Semitism, the bishops say these and other words must never be used again as a pretext to treat Jewish people with contempt. Describing this passage as an example of dramatic exaggeration, the bishops say they have had “tragic consequences” in encouraging hatred and persecution. “The attitudes and language of first-century quarrels between Jews and Jewish Christians should never again be emulated in relations between Jews and Christians.”

As examples of passages not to be taken literally, the bishops cite the early chapters of Genesis, comparing them with early creation legends from other cultures, especially from the ancient East. The bishops say it is clear that the primary purpose of these chapters was to provide religious teaching and that they could not be described as historical writing.

Similarly, they refute the apocalyptic prophecies of Revelation, the last book of the Christian Bible, in which the writer describes the work of the risen Jesus, the death of the Beast and the wedding feast of Christ the Lamb.

The bishops say: “Such symbolic language must be respected for what it is, and is not to be interpreted literally. We should not expect to discover in this book details about the end of the world, about how many will be saved and about when the end will come.”

In their foreword to the teaching document, the two most senior Catholics of the land, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Archbishop of Westminster, and Cardinal Keith O’Brien, Archbishop of St Andrew’s and Edinburgh, explain its context.

They say people today are searching for what is worthwhile, what has real value, what can be trusted and what is really true.

The new teaching has been issued as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations of Dei Verbum, the Second Vatican Council document explaining the place of Scripture in revelation. In the past 40 years, Catholics have learnt more than ever before to cherish the Bible. “We have rediscovered the Bible as a precious treasure, both ancient and ever new.”

A Christian charity is sending a film about the Christmas story to every primary school in Britain after hearing of a young boy who asked his teacher why Mary and Joseph had named their baby after a swear word. The Breakout Trust raised £200,000 to make the 30-minute animated film, It’s a Boy. Steve Legg, head of the charity, said: “There are over 12 million children in the UK and only 756,000 of them go to church regularly.
That leaves a staggering number who are probably not receiving basic Christian teaching.”

SPIRITUAL WARFARE – The Really Big Picture

Introduction

This article is directed at Holy Spirit filled, born-again, believers; and for even them these ideas may be difficult to grasp. But every time I am “led” to another Bible-based book, doors of understanding are opened, and I start to see new realities emerging in my understanding of things of this word and particularly of this “spirit world” we live in. These new discoveries explain much. Hopefully I will be able to communicate some of these insights to you in this article. But I must forewarn you these concepts are not widely embraced. My hope is to introduce you to some Bible truths that have been corrupted by the ideology of “man” influenced by the Enemy. These truths are so simple and apparent if you only shake lose the corruption and open your mind to what is obvious. You just need to “think about it”. It will all make sense.

Apostolic Beliefs VS. Augustinian Beliefs

Many Christians know the inconsistencies that permeate our beliefs today but few understand their origins. Theologians and Bible scholars have polluted the true meaning of Jesus’ (God’s) Word by over-thinking things and coming up with non-scriptural doctrines. This has not just happened to Christianity but indeed has happened to Judaism as well (through the over-thinking and Satanically influenced rabbinical doctrine of the Talmud). This confusion, simply put, is a result of Satanic warfare against the purity of God’s Word. And quite frankly it has been nothing short of remarkably successful.

Augustine (and his followers throughout history) wrestled with the challenge of understanding evil. How is it, that an all powerful, all loving God, could allow evil to happen in the world? He introduced to the Christian belief system that God controlled everything that happened. Thus he suggests that “all things work for the Glory of God” and God controls all things. But unfortunately that is a perversion of Romans 8:28 which instead says:

(Rom. 8:28) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

So are we to believe when a Nazi hideously tortured a little girl by by plucking her eyes from her head in front of her mother that this ultimately works for the Glory or the good of God’s will? I say to you NO. All things DO NOT work for the Glory of God! In fact all things of this Earth that are NOT of God are of Satan and caused by demons that we are to do battle with. That is indeed what the Bible tells us.

The Bible tells us that Satan is the “god of this world”, “the ruler of the power of the air”, and “the rule of this world” (2 Cor 4:4), (Eph 2:2), (John 12:31), (John 14:30), and (John 16:11). He is portrayed as possessing all the kingdoms of the world, and is explicitly said to have control of the entire world (Luke 4:6), (1 John 5:19). He is further portrayed as being ultimately the one behind murder, lying, persecution, and even physical sickness and disease (John 8:44), (1 John 3:12), (Luke 13:16), (Acts 10:38), (Eph 6:12-13). Moreover he and his fallen army are portrayed as having supernatural capabilities to obstruct kingdom work, manipulate crowds, choke faith, demonize people and even keep little children in spiritual bondage (2 Thess 2:9, 18), (1 Cor 2:8), (Matthew 13:19), (Mark 7:25) and (Mark 9:17-22).

-See page 55 of a book from Reverend Gregory A. Boyd entitled “God at War” for more on this subject.

The Apostles of Christ were at war with Satan, devils and demons. They did “works” with “signs following”. These works were to preach Jesus’ Word, chase out demons, and rebuke demons of sickness and heal the sick. Everywhere they went they were persecuted. And with the exception of Judas who committed suicide, every one of them was likely martyred (killed, beheaded, or crucified).

See:

According to traditions [Historical Writings] and the Bible, eight of the Apostles died as Martyrs. At least two of the Apostles, Peter and Andrew were crucified.

What is God’s Role in All This?

No where in the Bible does it even suggest that God is the author of evil. In fact it is clear that God looks to and fro across all the Earth to do good for those that love him.

(2 Chron 16:9) For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.

However this does not at all imply that we are not under constant attack from the demonic powers of the earth because we are.

Here is how this all works:

  • God is all powerful in heaven. He is the almighty and the all-loving God.
  • God knows the “big picture” and knows the future (and it isn’t pretty until the end)
  • However God does not control everything that happens on the Earth – Satan Does!
  • If you call upon God (Jesus), he has the power to intercede on your behalf but he does not control your destiny – You Do!
  • When you get sick, this is not God’s will, this is Satan’s attack on YOU
  • It is YOUR responsibility to “do battle” with Satan’s power on Earth and if you don’t and you go through hard times then its “your fault” and you need to “STAND” against the wiles of the devil

We need to stop sitting back and just going to church thinking that God has everything in his hands because he DOES NOT. God requires you to get off your butt and take action. If you do not “pray always” and commune with the Lord, and put on his “whole armor” (Eph 6) then you get what you ask for and that is absolutely NOTHING from God and everything from the Devil.

While there are a few examples of God’s wrath in the Old Testament, most cases of “bad things” happening to the Jews were the result of their turning on God and God stepping out of the way and “letting” Satan have control. This is the whole purpose of the Book of Job. To explain to us that when God steps out of the way (“that which restrains is taken out of the way”), Satan gets full power to do what he will.

God provides protection to those who actively love and pursue him. But frankly the rest be damned by their own inaction. That’s how it works. There is nothing at all divine in nature about what is going on in the world. Sure God knows what is going to happen but until the very end he is letting the demons and principalities in the world “do what they will”. It is the absence of God that is evil.

Faith Without Works is DEAD

Jude 2:20 says: “Faith without works is dead”. So what exactly does this mean?

What this means is that if you do not DO anything then your faith is useless. Utterly useless. And if faith abides in you, then doesn’t this mean that you are basically dead in faith? Does this not ultimately mean that you are dead to God? Useless to God?

So what are works? Is going to Church and praying in tongues works? Well not really. The only time that tongues are works is when an unbeliever hears them and asks what they are. Then your tongues become a “sign” and become a work unto the Lord. Is reading God’s Word works? Nope not at all. Is going to church and edifying others works? NO. The ONLY time you are performing works is when you are performing “signs following”. You must ACT in faith, you must step out and lay hands on the sick and you MUST chase the demons of sickness out of their bodies. You must clothe the poor and help others that are unbelievers and draw them into the salvation. If you are not actively doing this then you are dead unto the works of the Lord. And guess what your reward is for that. Nothing. You are inviting the works of Satan into your life by not walking in faith, and doing the works of Jesus Christ.

The Christian church is killing the works of the Lord. Instead of teaching people in the body of Christ to go out and heal the sick by the laying on of hands, they instead show you that ONLY THE ELDERS are allowed to heal the sick. While I understand they do not want some Voodoo Princess to run to the altar and pray for the sick, they fail to teach the words of Christ when they do not actively drive the people in the church to get out there and perform the Works of Christ themselves. And this is not simply grabbing your buddies and dragging them into your church. It requires YOU to take action and pray for them yourself. YOU should be laying your hands on them and getting them baptised in the Holy Spirit not just hoping they will come into your church some day so you can get a “feather in your spiritual cap”. If we are not stepping out and performing the “works” of Jesus and the apostles we are not doing our jobs. This is WAR.

Summary and Closing of Thoughts

To summarize this, since we are all the “sons of God” through Christ’s atonement and giving of his Holy Spirit to us and in us, then we are expected to be an army of Christs. This army is supposed to be active. Any church that is not teaching and showing its congregation that they must get out in the war zone and drive out the powers of evil and heal the sick is failing to do it’s job! Any church that does not have “signs following”, speaking in tongues, healing of the sick, and the driving out of devils is DEAD. DEAD. DEAD. The vast majority of evangelical churches are DEAD. They are homogenized with ingredients of selfish ambivalence and the works of self preservation, worldly prosperity, and Satan.

God knows what is going to happen, but God DOES NOT control HOW it is going to happen – Satan does.

Did it ever occur to you that the only reason God wins the battle in the Book of Revelation is because he simply says ENOUGH and sends in his own Angels and his own wrath to wipe out the whole of Satan’s army?

Did it ever occur to you that it is NOT the body of Christ or Christ’s bride that wins the war with Satan at all? No indeed. We win NOTHING for God. God takes matters into his own hands and saves us. In fact he actually has to “call us up” out of the way at the very end because otherwise he would have to destroy his own bride when he wipes out the Earth in the end.

We are here to PROVE ourselves worthy in a fight that we can only win one battle at a time. Did you ever think about that. Inaction is not an option, because inaction means you will lose your own personal battles with Satan and be seen as dead in your works to the Lord. If you do not fight the good fight and “endure to the end” I feel sorry for you because I am not sure what your reward might be. We are here to make our mark at all costs. We are here to lay down our lives for Jesus if need be. We are here to make a difference and prove ourselves worthy so Jesus recognizes us in heaven.

We are going through the Tribulation and we are going to go through some really hard times. We are NOT going to be taken out of the way of persecution and many of us will be killed. We have to stand strong in our faith and we need to exercise our power. If you do not exercise your power and build your faith through your “works” you will be a sitting duck and get smashed by Satan’s army coming at you in full force.

God Bless You and START PERFORMING WORKS!!!

ONE WORLD CHURCH IS HERE

For those of you who have heard enough, here is even more proof we are entering the Tribulation right now. Glory be to God, the Antichrist’s one-world-global-church is being founded this week.

Antichrist Summoning The World: One World Religion Charter To Be Signed Tomorrow 11-12-09; And The ‘One-Eyed’ Curse

This post is partially a follow up on: David Jeremiah And His All-Seeing Eye: What Is Up? 11-8-09 “clever camera angles and partially shaded faces are used to endlessly flash the ‘one eyed’ curse. If you watch for it, you will be astounded.”***The push for one world religion is coming from every side. Here is an announcement of the signing of a ‘charter’ for the religions of the world, scheduled for tomorrow, 11-12-09. The promo video is at the bottom, and the picture below is a screenshot taken from the 2:33 min. video at the 2:00-2:07 mark. Once again, a picture is worth a thousand words. This dark, ugly, scary picture tells you everything you need to know, in particular, identifying beyond question the driving force behind the push for the one world religion. It is the nefarious ‘one-eyed’ curse. The literal calling-card of the occult masters of the NWO. (see ‘all-seeing-eye’ post above for much more info.)—————————

We have called on the world to sign up to a Charter for Compassion.
