This is a topic that will require allot of commentary from me, there is so much to address here, so check back in from time to time, it will always be under construction. I will always try to show why it is that I believe what I believe, and where I get the information from.
THE DEFINITION OF FAITH
“Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.” Hebrews 11:1 There are things in our lives that we know are real, although we cannot actually see them with our naked eyes, but we can feel the effects of them. Love comes to mind, the movement of music, the tides of the seas, magnetic attraction of the covalent bonds, light, heat, cold, wind, current flow, the division of cells in all living things, the suspension of planets and stars, gravity, etc.
THE BEGINNING OF ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE
John 17:3 says this, ” This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.’ If you want to live, eventually you are going to have to learn about God and his Son Jesus Christ, I suggest you get started as soon as possible, and you are not going to learn about them attending the churches owned by Satan.
THE BIG BANG THEORY
If we can begin with the opening statement of the Bible, trust in these words, we can build our accurate knowledge about God and his plans for the earth and us. Genesis 1:1 tells us this, “In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
The Big Bang Theory is that this entire universe, all of the planets, all of the stars, all of the galaxies, all of the moons, and all life on earth that ever was, came suddenly into existence in one single massive explosion from a teaspoon of matter, that somehow spontaneously erupted. Imagine if you will, considering the vastness of the universe and the diversity of life on earth, what the atomic density of that teaspoon of matter must have been. (as you will see, that is sarcasm of course) Astronomers say that it appears that the universe goes on forever, and just keeps getting bigger the more they discover, so how could it be, if it expands exponentially, that no matter how big it actually is, all of it will still fit into a teaspoon if it is condensed.
Let me interject here, that it is generally accepted among scientist, and we can all relate to this from personal experience, that energy is not created, that although we do not thoroughly understand it’s entire composition, we know that energy does indeed exist. We also know, that energy cannot be destroyed, but that it can only be transformed, therefore, energy can be transformed into matter, just keep that in mind for the moment. And the person of whom the Bible speaks is the source of energy, at Isaiah 40:26 says of God, “Raise your eyes high up and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who is bringing forth the army of them even by number, all of whom he calls even by name. Due to the abundance of dynamic energy, he also being vigorous in power, not one of them is missing. “
Originally The Big Bang was supposed to have happen 4.5 billion years ago, then it got changed to 13.7 billion years ago, and now it is 13.82 billion years old, so scientist say, ” Planck’s observations, first released in 2013, mapped the background in unprecedented detail and revealed that the universe was older than previously thought: 13.82 billion years old, rather than 13.7 billion years old.”
Just about all of the scientific community accepts the Big Bang Theory, all of the astronomers, and the religious communities see no contradictions in it, the Churches accept the Big Bang Theory. What ever the scientist say, the Churches follow suit, no matter what God’s views are. So lets just take a look at what God’s views are of the Big Bang Theory, that the scientist and Churches have adopted.
The second verse of the Bible says this, Genesis 1:2, “Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep; and God’s active force was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.” So we see here that the Earth was formless and waste at this point, it was dark, covered in water, and that God’s active force, his spirit, his energy, was moving over the surface of the water. Pause here and think and reason upon the 2nd verse of the Bible. The Earth was made, but there was nothing upon it, no land, no vegetation, no life, covered in water, and no sun. Is that an accurate explanation of the big bang explosion, when all of the physical universe come into existence in a massive explosion, all at the same instant, or does it rather paint a picture of deliberate design, a designer, building something.
At Genesis 1:3 the story goes on, and says this, “And God proceeded to say: “Let light come to be.” Then there came to be light.” Letting light come to be cannot be true if light already was in existence. So we can take from this that the earth was formed first, then the light came next. Not at the same time, in a massive explosion, but rather in a sequence, in an order, as by design, by a designer.
Moving on to the next verse of Genesis 1: 4-5 we read this, ” After that God saw that the light was good, and God brought about a division between the light and the darkness. And God began calling the light Day, but the darkness he called Night. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a first day. “ So we see that next God brought about a division between light and dark. So there was a process, first it was all dark, but the earth was there, then there was light, then there was light and dark, and when it was light, he called it day, and when it was dark he called it night, evening and morning. It is clear, that it all did not happen all at the same time, but in stages. Notice the word “After” meaning that there was a before, not all at the same time. Notice also the term “day” which indicates a specific period of demarcated time, set aside, coming after a previous period of time, and before a future period of time. The term day can also mean a block of time, like when we say, “day time – light” “in our day” “in the day of” ” in my grandfathers day” etc. It does not necessarily mean a 24 hour period. At 2 Peter 3:8 it tell us, “However, let this one fact not be escaping your notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.”
By the time we get to Genesis 1:6-8 it goes on to say, ” And God went on to say: “Let an expanse come to be in between the waters and let a dividing occur between the waters and the waters.” Then God proceeded to make the expanse and to make a division between the waters that should be beneath the expanse and the waters that should be above the expanse. And it came to be so. And God began to call the expanse Heaven.” This period came after the first day, not at the same time, but after. The scriptures tell us here that God divided up the waters that were covering the earth, he left some on the earth, but he also put some above the earth, and the space between the waters on earth, and the water above the earth he called heaven. Remember this for later, we will come back to this at Noah’s flood. The context of heavens did not mean the universe, it meant within the atmosphere of the earth, because it was within the context of the earth of which we are speaking. After God divided up the waters, verse 8 goes on to say, “And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a second day.” So we then see that we have two days mentioned, two periods of demarcated time. Not all happening in the same event.
At Genesis 1:9-13 we go on to a third period of time, “And God went on to say: “Let the waters under the heavens be brought together into one place and let the dry land appear.” And it came to be so.” In verse 9 here we have another separate event, God gathers together the waters he left on the earth, into one area and then that allowed the dry land to come into view, and verse 10 says, “ And God began calling the dry land Earth, but the bringing together of the waters he called Seas. Further, God saw that it was good. Verse 11 tells us that God then called the land Earth and the waters Sea and we go on to a completely different event, “ And God went on to say: “Let the earth cause grass to shoot forth, vegetation bearing seed, fruit trees yielding fruit according to their kinds, the seed of which is in it, upon the earth.” And it came to be so.” So with that verse we have the vegetation of the earth growing on the land, and this happens at a different schedule than the waters collecting together to form Seas, and the dry land appearing, they did not happen in one single spontaneous event. “ And the earth began to put forth grass, vegetation bearing seed according to its kind and trees yielding fruit, the seed of which is in it according to its kind. Then God saw that [it was] good.” And here in this verse number 13 we find that the vegetation of the earth happened on the 3rd day, not on the first, and certainly not in a massive explosion. “And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a third day.”
And on the fourth day Genesis 1: 14-19 goes on to tell us what happened next, “And God went on to say: “Let luminaries come to be in the expanse of the heavens to make a division between the day and the night; and they must serve as signs and for seasons and for days and years. And they must serve as luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth.” And it came to be so. And God proceeded to make the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for dominating the day and the lesser luminary for dominating the night, and also the stars. Thus God put them in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth, and to dominate by day and by night and to make a division between the light and the darkness. Then God saw that [it was] good. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a fourth day. ” So on the fourth day, God made the Sun, the Moon and the Stars, allot of light for the day, a little bit of light at night, he didn’t leave us in pitch darkness. So precise were the position and movement of the Sun and Moon that they were to serve as time keepers, for signs, seasons, days and years. A very deep thought would beg the question, if the universe was made in one massive explosion, why would the scriptures describe this event as having a morning and an evening ?
Genesis 1:20-23 goes on with God’s view point of the Big Bang, ” And God went on to say: “Let the waters swarm forth a swarm of living souls and let flying creatures fly over the earth upon the face of the expanse of the heavens.” And God proceeded to create the great sea monsters and every living soul that moves about, which the waters swarmed forth according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to its kind. And God got to see that [it was] good. With that God blessed them, saying: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the waters in the sea basins, and let the flying creatures become many in the earth.” And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a fifth day.” So on the fifth day God created the fish and the birds, five days after the earth was mentioned as being formless and waste and dark. Notice how Genesis 1:2 begins, that the earth was already here, and then he began preparing it, there is no telling how long the earth had already been here. without form, and as a waste land.
Genesis 1:24-25 now tells us something very interesting, remember, the fish and the birds are already on earth at this time, but now come the animals. It begins like this, ” And God went on to say: “Let the earth put forth living souls according to their kinds, domestic animal and moving animal and wild beast of the earth according to its kind.” And it came to be so. And God proceeded to make the wild beast of the earth according to its kind and the domestic animal according to its kind and every moving animal of the ground according to its kind. And God got to see that it was good.” Notice how the scripture calls the animals, “living souls” and the animals were brought forth “according to their kinds” , and wouldn’t you just know it, they still to this very day, reproduce only according to their kinds. God took a moment of pause to look over what he had done, and said “it was good ”
And then comes the best part of the Bible, it was so wonderful that even the angels in heaven burst out in applause. Genesis 1:26-28 goes on to tell us this, ” And God went on to say: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every moving animal that is moving upon the earth.” And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. Further, God blessed them and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving upon the earth.” This scripture makes no mistake as to how man arrived on earth, quoting God, the Bible says, ” Let us make man in our image, in our likeness “ and man come into existence long after the earth, the water, the land, the birds, the fish, the vegetation, the animals, man was last after everything else. Let us make man, is very easy to understand, man was made by someone, by two someones, when God said “let us make man” he was talking to someone. Who ?
God then instructs man on what to eat, at Genesis 1: 29-31, ” And God went on to say: “ Here I have given to you all vegetation bearing seed which is on the surface of the whole earth and every tree on which there is the fruit of a tree bearing seed. To you let it serve as food. And to every wild beast of the earth and to every flying creature of the heavens and to everything moving upon the earth in which there is life as a soul I have given all green vegetation for food.” And it came to be so. After that God saw everything he had made and, look! [it was] very good. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a sixth day.” God also gave instructions for man, he was to have in subjection the entire world and everything that moved upon it. There was still a little bit left to do on the sixth day. Eve came to be.
In summery, we have no idea how long this universe has been here, it could be billions of years or trillions of years old, we just don’t know. After God began forming the earth in preparation for man, we also do not know how many years he took to form this earth to be inhabitable for man, it could have been billions of years to form the seas, trillions of years to form the Sun and Moon, trillions of years to form the dry land, trillions of years to form the birds and the fish of the seas, it could have been trillions of years to form the vegetation, it could have been trillions of years to form the animals, we know that skeletal remains found in the Cambrian period conclude that there was an explosion of life, and we also know that that period of time, including the age of dinosaurs, were separated from man, man came along much later. There are no skeletal remains of dinosaurs in the sedimentary levels where skeletal remains of men are found. So the earth and all life on it could have existed for trillions upon trillions of years, before man came to be.
Now there are those who give us all kinds of guesses about how long man has been on earth, some as much as millions of years, hundreds of thousands of years. But the Bible gives us genealogy, and ancestral record in years that can be counted. According to bible chronology man dates all the way back to Adam, just over 6,000 years from now. Some Churches teach that the entire universe was created in 6 literal days, 24 hour periods, and we were not there to verify that, but there is no reason why a person cannot also believe what the bible has to say, the earth already existed long before God began work on it to get it ready for man, so holding God to a 24 hour day, is ludicrous at best.
MAN CREATED IN GODS IMAGE
Starting at the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve were alone in the Garden, before their children, our very first human parents, when it was just them and God. God gave them a command, the first of the laws from God. He also gave them an assignment, work to do to keep them busy, and have a rewarding and meaningful life. Genesis 1: 27-28, says this, “And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. Further, God blessed them and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving upon the earth.” They talked with God directly, every single day, the scriptures say, “About the breezy part of the day” no doubt, any questions they had were answered.
God’s intention for man was that he live forever, in perfect health, in perfect surroundings. In order for this to happen, man needed to be obedient to God, because there were many things about living in a physical world that Adam and Eve had not had a chance to learn yet. So the first rule that God gave to Adam and Eve is found at Genesis 2:15-16-17, ” And Jehovah God proceeded to take the man and settle him in the garden of Eden to cultivate it and to take care of it. And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man: “From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction.But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die.” Notice that God told Adam that he would die, if he ate from that tree, that is to say, cease to exist, he did not say that Adam would go to heaven or a place of eternal torment for being disobedient.There was no hidden message in that command, it was simple and easy to understand, if you eat from that tree, you positively will die.
To understand all of the religions on earth that have ever existed, and all of those currently in existence, just about all you need to know is contained in the account of Genesis 2:15-17 , and here is what I mean by that. I personally only know of two religions on earth at this time that teach and believe what Jehovah told Adam, the Bible Students of Pennsylvania and Jehovah’s Witnesses, who at one time were related, that it is possible to die like God said. All of the rest of the religions teach the Satanic lie that you will not die, no matter what you do, you will go on living and you will be just like God, some call it “Grace” , once saved , always saved, get Baptized as a Catholic, Baptist, Protestant, become a child molester, murderer, thief, adulterer, abortionist, it won’t matter, you will still go to heaven when you die, and there is nothing that God can do to stop you. The prosperity religions teach that you will be a Little God with endless wealth and endless powers and immortality, meaning that you cannot be destroyed, even by God himself. The religions of man teach that you go to heaven, you go to hell, you transmigrate to some other life form and work your way back up the evolutionary chain, but you will do anything except die. God says, that if you stand up in defiance of him, you will cease to exist and return to the dust from which you were made of.
When we all take an honest hard look at what happens to a person, when from all observations have become motionless, and they stop eating, stop drinking, stop talking, don’t respond to sound, they refuse to get up and walk around, their hearts stop beating, they stop breathing, some of us, including every single doctor and scientist that have ever lived on this earth, refer to that person as being dead. And if you were to sit beside them long enough, you can actually watch as their bodies return to dust, exactly like God said they would. Genesis 3:19,” In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return.”
To this very day the scriptures tell us that only one man who ever lived on earth, was witnessed, as having ascended into the heavens, the Christ. No one has of yet, went to heaven when they die, except Jesus. At John 3:12-13 it tells us this, “ If I have told you earthly things and yet you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? Moreover, no man has ascended into heaven but he that descended from heaven, the Son of man.”
Upon Christ return, he tells us that he will take from the earth a small group of men that will help him to rule as kings and priest with him in heaven, but that day has not come yet, and we know that because he said that when he returns, this entire world will see him in his glory, so that there will be no mistake in who he is. On that day, people of earth will be given a choice, choose Christ, or choose the rulership of Satan, and that choice will be clear, there will be no mistake in your choice. After you make your choice, all of Satan’s kingdom and followers will be destroyed, there will be no resurrection from that destruction. If you choose the rulership of the eighth king that is yet to come, a one world government that is currently being set up, you will be choosing your own death, choose wisely.
Adam and Eve made a deliberate choice at the Garden of Eden to follow Satan, and reject God. They chose Satan over the very person who gave them life. However, contained within the loins of Adam and Eve, were the future generations of man. God said that after he created Adam and Eve, he was entering his rest day. Genesis chapter 2 tells us this,” Thus the heavens and the earth and all their army came to their completion. And by the seventh day God came to the completion of his work that he had made, and he proceeded to rest on the seventh day from all his work that he had made. And God proceeded to bless the seventh day and make it sacred, because on it he has been resting from all his work that God has created for the purpose of making. This is a history of the heavens and the earth in the time of their being created, in the day that Jehovah God made earth and heaven.” If God were to destroy Adam and Eve, and make a new human pair, he would, some might argue, make himself a liar by creating again instead of resting like he said he was. Allowing Adam and Eve to go on, and bring forth human life in fulfillment of his original intention, would not be in violation of his words, nor would it be in violation of the term day in which he promised that Adam would die, because we read at 2 Peter 3:8 tells us this,“ However, let this one fact not be escaping your notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.” At Genesis 5:5 we learn that Adam died within that one thousand year day, “So all the days of Adam that he lived amounted to nine hundred and thirty years and he died.”
GOD’S PLAN TO FIX THINGS
Genesis 3: 12-15 tells us this, “And the man went on to say: “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me [fruit] from the tree and so I ate.” With that Jehovah God said to the woman: “What is this you have done?” To this the woman replied: “The serpent—it deceived me and so I ate.” And Jehovah God proceeded to say to the serpent: “Because you have done this thing, you are the cursed one out of all the domestic animals and out of all the wild beasts of the field. Upon your belly you will go and dust is what you will eat all the days of your life. And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heel.”
This is the very first prophecy in the scriptures. This scripture tells us that Adam deliberately ate from the tree that God told him not to, and that Eve was tricked into eating from the tree. It was the Serpent who deceived Adam and Eve into going against God and in essence calling God a liar by their actions. Who was this Serpent ?
THE SERPENT IS SATAN
Revelation 12:9 it tells us this, ” So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.”
WHO IS THE WOMAN AT GENESIS 3:15
“And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heel.” So how is it that the “woman” is referred to as a “he” that will inflict a head wound upon the serpent who is actually Satan? God set up a plan to have his woman give a fatal blow to the head of Satan. Satan was to bruise the woman in the heal, which would not be fatal. Both the woman and the serpent would go on to produce seed, or offspring, so obviously this would take some time before the head wound would kill Satan. So the fulfillment of Genesis 3:15 was a prophecy to be fulfilled in the future.
Revelation 12: 1-6 tells us more about this woman. ” And a great sign was seen in heaven, a woman arrayed with the sun, and the moon was beneath her feet, and on her head was a crown of twelve stars, and she was pregnant. And she cries out in her pains and in her agony to give birth. And another sign was seen in heaven, and, look! a great fiery-colored dragon, with seven heads and ten horns and upon its heads seven diadems; and its tail drags a third of the stars of heaven, and it hurled them down to the earth. And the dragon kept standing before the woman who was about to give birth, that, when she did give birth, it might devour her child. And she gave birth to a son, a male, who is to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was caught away to God and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.”
We read here that the woman is a heavenly thing, in the presence of God, and she is arrayed in great glory, a crown, which would indicate great authority, and she is pregnant with a child. We then see that the Dragon, which we know is Satan, is waiting for the Woman to give birth to the child so that it can kill the child when it is born. The child is born, a male child, and this child is destined to shepherd all of the nations. We know from the rest of the scriptures that the person who is destined to shepherd all of the nations is the Christ. Christ was called the Great Shepard. At Hebrews 13:20 is says, ” Now may the God of peace, who brought up from the dead, the great shepherd of the sheep with the blood of an everlasting covenant, our Lord Jesus,” (a side note is notice that it was God who brought Jesus up from the dead, Jesus did not resurrect himself, he couldn’t, he was dead, he would have to be alive to resurrect anyone.) At John 10:14 it also tells us, ” I am the fine shepherd, and I know my sheep and my sheep know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I surrender my soul in behalf of the sheep.”
“The child was caught away to God and to the throne”, So this child was so special that is would be handed over to God, and to a position on God’s throne. The scripture only speak of one person being on a throne at the right hand of God, and that is Christ.
The Woman eventually goes off into the wilderness for 3 years and 6 months. God made provisions for her there where she is cared for and fed. We mentioned before that both the dragon and the woman have seed, and time is given for the seed to be born. This seed is allowed to multiply from the time of Christ, until the Woman goes off into the wilderness. The Woman goes off into the wilderness only after all of her seed have been born and sealed as Sons of God and Brothers of Christ. At this point, no more children are born to her. The 3 years and 6 months begin when the world we know now suddenly is no more, and it goes into global tyranny, it will be obvious to the entire world when this begins. Those who the scriptures refer to as Sons of God and Brothers of Christ will be obvious to the entire world at that point, they will be indestructible, immortal, as they help Christ bring Gods judgements upon the earth and it’s inhabitants who rejected God’s Kingdom, and choose the kingdom of Satan instead. Their choice will not have been a mistake, they will make it deliberately knowing full well what they are doing, thus deserving the destructive wrath of God. Those among whom the bible speak of as a great crowd of people, who no man was able to number, will enter into that time of global tribulation to be tested as to their faith unto God, not to a man, not to a building, not to an organization ruled over by a group of men, but rather their love of God will be put to the test, some of them, all the way to death.
THE BEGINNING OF FAITH IS LISTENING
Romans 10:17 “So faith follows the thing heard. In turn, what is heard is through the word about Christ.”
Romans 10:11-13 goes on to say, ” For the Scripture says: “None that rests his faith on him will be disappointed.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for there is the same Lord over all, who is rich to all those calling upon him. For “everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved.” However, how will they call on him in whom they have not put faith? How, in turn, will they put faith in him of whom they have not heard? How, in turn, will they hear without someone to preach? How, in turn, will they preach unless they have been sent forth? Just as it is written: “How comely are the feet of those who declare good news of good things!” Nevertheless, they did not all obey the good news. For Isaiah says: “Jehovah, who put faith in the thing heard from us?” So faith follows the thing heard. In turn the thing heard is through the word about Christ. Nevertheless I ask, They did not fail to hear, did they? Why, in fact, “into all the earth their sound went out, and to the extremities of the inhabited earth their utterances.”
THE ONLY APPROACH TO GOD
John 14:6 ” Jesus said to him: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Notice this, Jesus did not say, no one comes to me except through me. He clearly mentioned “The Father” and himself, two completely separate persons. He was also very clear, there is no misunderstanding, a priest is not your mediator between God and Man, no one comes to Jehovah except through Christ, if it were a different way, Jesus would have said so. If John, Peter, Paul, Mark, Timothy were the gateway to Jehovah, Jesus would have said so.
OBSERVE HIS COMMANDMENTS
John 14: 15-21; “If you love me, you will observe my commandments. And I will ask the Father and he will give you another helper to be with you forever, the spirit of the truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither sees it nor knows it. You know it, because it remains with you and is in you. I will not leave you bereaved. I am coming to you. In a little while the world will see me no more, but you will see me, because I live and you will live. In that day you will know that I am in union with my Father and you are in union with me and I am in union with you. Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. In turn, whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will clearly show myself to him.” Notice his words, ” The spirit of truth the world cannot receive, it cannot see it, and cannot know it” Most people in the world do not want to know the truth, they want the lie. Those who reject Christ, will be rejected by his Father. Those who love Christ, will be loved by his Father.
CALLED INTO A SHARING
1 Corinthians 1:9; “God is faithful, by whom you were called into a sharing with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.“ Notice here that it is understood, that Jesus was not being called God, but he was being called his Son. God calls his servants to have a sharing with Christ. Not everyone is called as the World Council Of Churches teach. There are people in this world that are NOT called by God.
CHRIST IS THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE
Acts 4: 10-12; ” let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene , whom you executed on a stake but whom God raised up from the dead, by means of him this man stands here healthy in front of you. This is ” the stone that was treated by you builders as of no account that has become the chief cornerstone.” Furthermore, there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.” Notice with this scripture that Jesus was resurrected from the dead by God, Jesus did not resurrect himself. The churches teach that Jesus resurrected himself, if that is the case, how is it that he did this while he was dead.One more point to take away from this is that the Scripture said that it was in Jesus name that we are saved, a sacrifice had to be paid, and Jehovah could not be killed by anyone. Especially himself.
THE GLORY OF CHRIST BIRTH
Luke 21: 4-23; ” Of course, Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to David’s city, which is called Bethlehem, because of his being a member of the house and family of David. He went to get registered with Mary, who had been given him in marriage as promised and who was soon to give birth. While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her son, the firstborn, and she wrapped him in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the lodging place. There were also in the same region shepherds living out of doors and keeping watch in the night over their flocks. Suddenly Jehovah’s angel stood before them, and Jehovah’s glory gleamed around them, and they became very fearful. But the angel said to them: “Do not be afraid, for look! I am declaring to you good news of a great joy that all the people will have. For today there was born to you in David’s city a savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this is a sign for you: You will find an infant wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger.” Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying: “Glory in the heights above to God, and on earth peace among men of goodwill.“ So when the angels had departed from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another: “Let us by all means go over to Bethlehem and see what has taken place, which Jehovah has made known to us.” And they went quickly and found Mary as well as Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known the message that they had been told concerning this young child. And all who heard were astonished at what the shepherds told them, but Mary began to preserve all these sayings, drawing conclusions in her heart. Then the shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them. After eight days, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived. Also, when the time came for purifying them according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to Jehovah, just as it is written in Jehovah’s Law: “Every firstborn male must be called holy to Jehovah.” Notice that Jesus was referred to once again as the “first born” this was not a reference to the first child of Mary, for she was a virgin that became pregnant by God, it was a reference made of Christ as the first born of God, the beginning of his creation.The churches of the world, World Council Of Churches, want you to believe that Jesus, was God Almighty, and he reduced himself to one sperm and egg and implanted himself as a sperm and egg in the womb of Mary. No wonder that a political ideology, masquerading as a religion, numbering on the way to 2 billion members, thinks Christians are out of their minds, and they would be right.
THE REASON FOR CHRIST
Christ death on the torture stake was far more involved than humans. His death on the stake was over an issue raised in heaven, a direct challenge to God in front of all the angels, that man could never remain loyal to God, skin for skin, man would reject God was the accusation made by the person who was able to convince Adam and Eve to turn their backs on God. Jesus Christ, who was the first born of the creation by God, and at whose hands all other things came into existence, volunteered to prove the enemy of God wrong, by abandoning his position in heaven and offering his life to be transformed into a man of flesh and blood, born through a woman, raised as a baby on earth to experience first hand as a human the trials and tribulations of life on earth under abject evil.He remained faithful to his heavenly Father all the way to his death, thus proving before all onlookers, earthly, but more importantly to the angels in heaven who witnessed first hand the very first rebellion against God. Jesus was a direct creation by God , Adam was a direct creation by God,and Jesus when God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness” Jesus was perfect and Adam was perfect, both having been made by God. The only fair comparison of the standard of the species, would be Adam and Christ, of all the creatures in the universe. Adam received death when he deliberately choose to go against Gods warning, that if you do this thing, you will die.Adam could only pass off to his offspring what he himself had, death. By Christ proving the challenge, that a creation of God, IE man, could remain faithful to God even in the face of a certain death, this act justified to all of those looking on in the assembly in the heavens, that mankind did posses within their genetic makeup, their DNA, the way that God made them, their design was proved to be valid, and thus a way was paved for mankind to be brought back from the original sin of Adam, into an arrangement led by Jesus Christ, to perfection, and afterwards, upon a final test of their loyalty to God, will have their condemnation of death, inherited by Adam, removed, and mankind will never have to die again strictly because of inherited sin. However, anytime in the future, they make the choice to go against God, after receiving the freedom of sin by God, rejecting that liberty, and once again choosing evil over good, their destruction will be immediate, and permanent.
THE LAW – WRITTEN INTO OUR HEARTS
It certainly can be said that there are portions of the scriptures that were written for the Jews, and about God’s dealings with them. But most of the scriptures were written about other issues Someone once said that the things written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through the comfort from the scriptures we might have hope. Christ often quoted from the scriptures, he would not have done that had they not been applicable to us all. There is nothing in the scriptures to indicate that the principles of the law covenant did not apply to all men, even though the letter of the law didn’t. We find to this very day, carved into stone, principles of the law covenant that men have adopted, that all men, by their very nature, have them carved into their genetic make up, indicating that they were also within the genetic make up of the one who fathered us all long before they were ever transmitted in writing to man. Or even before man came to be. It usually takes mankind coming to the ends of their time before they begin to acknowledge the constitution written in their souls.
RULING OVER MAN
That was along time ago, now they believe that the faithful and discreet slave are the governing body members, and even then, only when they are preparing the spiritual food, at any other time, they are just like the rest of the 144,000. Sometimes I think that when Christ asked the question of ‘Who really is the faithful and discreet slave ?” Of whom the Father will appoint him over all his belongings, was he speaking of himself ?, because in my view, it is only Christ who could qualify to be appointed over all of Jehovah’s belongings. I cannot even begin to imagine any of the governing body members, or anyone except Christ, who has ever lived as a man, being handed over for safekeeping, all of Jehovah’s belongings
JUDGING SCRIPTURAL VIOLENCE
I think that the entire point of the Hebrew Scriptures, is not so much about how God would behave in his perfected world, but how God was dealing with the insanity of the world at that time, it was God dealing with man, in the world that man made, not God. Remember, it was man that was asking for God’s involvement, not God. In the past 8 years, my entire belief system has changed, and I used to believe that if people just knew the things I knew they would believe the same things I do. But what I have discovered in 8 years is that there are people in this world that are evil, entire nations of people, are evil to the core, and they cannot be reached. The genetics of all living things are being altered by man, in particular, one nation is leading the entire world, in killing all life on earth. Ask, how should a nation of people be dealt with, who are killing all life on earth ? None of us lived in those times, and we do not know the complete story of the context of those scriptures. The Bible does not say that it was written by God, it just says that men were born along by inspiration, perhaps that same sort of inspiration that music drives. We can feel inspired by God, without actually being God. He does not grip the hand of authors and scribe by force the views of men. We are all immersed in a world gone mad, no different than from Adam and Eve to this very day. Satan uses man to work his evil out, it might just be fitting, that that evil working out be met with equal force and implements. If you kill my child, I am going to kill ten of yours. The fight men find themselves in, is not exempt from a spiritual component. Spiritual forces are at battle on earth, and none of us can view or hear any of that conversation or posturing take place. Certainly, without question, judging those scriptures through the lens of human compassion and modern times, it is easy to view them with indignation, repulsion and outrage. The same as it would attending an execution, having never heard the crime. At one point, all flesh had ruined it’s way, it had been altered to such a degree that it could not be salvaged. Today humans are being genetically altered, as is all life on earth, man is deliberately altering the genetic make up of the entire biosphere. We might give the awards and accolades for killing us all, but is this not rather to our own destruction, the preserving alive of those who are killing us all. And those who would take up the torch after them. In rules and conduct of war, if you are going to declare war, never leave your enemy in such a position where he can stand up and fight you all over again, and thus the battles would never end, neither any of those who could exact revenge, that is the law of war on human terms. Never allow a man’s son to come after you 50 years from now. Nor his dog. There are entire nations of men, that the world would be better off without, that cannot be argued against. Take for example two currently alive in our time. One nation cuts off the genitals of females, and forces them to live their entire lives out underneath blankets in the hottest parts of the planet, while the men are given permission by their Prophet to rape all other females on earth, and especially the virgins with white skin, and once they accomplish the murder of the infidels, by blowing themselves up in the most crowded places, taking as many other lives as possible, even those of the exact same place of worship, will be rewarded with 70 virgins in their perceived heaven, while their god video tapes the orgy, and sells the tapes on eBay. Another nation, claims to be Christen, followers of Christ, and claims to be a nation that God has blessed, and is ruling over. One nation under God, bringing freedom and liberty to all. That is of course, unless you are a child. This nation, by it’s own calculations, readily available to anyone who wants to look it up, has ripped the heads, arms, and legs off of it’s own children, while they are still alive, in the numbers exceeding some 65,000,000, and exported this genocide all over this earth, it has infiltrated every single nation on earth, in greater numbers perhaps in India and China, where if the child happens to be female, their death is almost certain. And that death is by the most horrendous means imaginable, making the fires of Molech seem humane by comparison. No one can argue that by any standards, these nations should be allowed to go on, the evil in them is genetic, the people themselves demand this evil, and could only be removed by their own genocide, there is nothing anyone can do to bring them back from their moral degradation, any attempt would be interfering against free will. There are actually people on earth, that choose evil over good, I have learned that these last 8 years, and there is nothing that any of us can do to restore good in them, they simple cannot be redeemed, and perhaps the God mentioned in the Hebrew scriptures, could see inside of the human condition, something that we could not discern by simply reading one paragraph of that thousand years of history.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
God has nothing to do with America. America is the greatest terrorist organization earth has ever seen. We have pulled the heads arms and legs off of our own children while they are still alive, in the numbers exceeding some 65,000,000 to date, one forth of our population, we obliterate entire civilizations around the word, turning thousands of years of archeological antiquities into dust, set homes on fire while people are still in them asleep, drop millions of bombs on people while they are yet in their beds in the middle of the night, and we all sit around our televisions and watch it all go down on CNN, as if it is just another Die Hard movie. This country is evil to it’s core, and I for one, would not want anything to do with a God who would bless the conduct of America. God does not bless America, he is preserving it for destruction at his hands.
PATRIOTISM IS A CULT
I have listened to your channel many times, and have subscribed to it. It helps me keep a pulse on how Americans think. What you have said in this video is an accurate representation of the current social environment of the average American citizen. But it is immersed in the typical blind ignorant religious fervor of ideological patriotism. Patriotism is a false belief system, one in which mankind slaughters each other over. It is an idealistic view of exceptionalism, a belief that we can do no wrong, that we are better than you, that we have the moral high ground, a belief that our way of life is the best. I listen to you because you do have some good and valid points, sort of like listening to a speech given by the Pope, it all sounds good, but when it is superimposed upon the realities of the conduct of the Catholic church ( Impose the United States ) , what becomes naked and exposed is the harsh realities, that cognitive dissonance prevents one from viewing. There is no greater source of cognitive dissonance than religion and patriotism, save perhaps money and sex. They have the same effect on people, and are a great control mechanism, in fact they are so great at controlling people, that people will actually walk over the cliff to a certain death, just because their leader tells them too, they will offer up their children to be sacrificed in a blind ignorant religious and patriotic fervor. Patriotism is a cult, a cult in which people slaughter each other over. One man in 1942 stood up in the world, and told the rest of the world to kill each other, and the world did just like he told them to, hundreds of millions of people, pointed their weapons at each other and pulled the triggers. All rational should have told them, no, point that gun at the man who said that, and pull the trigger at him, but no, that man actually had to kill himself. This is how ignorant people are, when it comes to religion and patriotism. To this very day, Americans, in their blind patriotic religious fervor, think that they elect their President, or, that Vladimir Putin does, depending upon which television station they listen to. When the absolute truth is, they do not, their votes go into the trash can, and their is nothing that anyone can do to make them understand that reality. Americans want health care for themselves, but they do not want it for anyone else, not even their own children. Americans believe that Americans go to foreign countries and destroy and obliterate entire civilizations to bring them freedom and peace. Americans believe that this freedom and peace was so important to bring to Iraq, that it actually starved to death 500,000 children, and said in the end, “It was worth it”. To this very day, Americans believe that four camel jockeys with box cutters brought down the Twin Towers of New York, and the Media backs them up. Americans have ripped the heads, arms, and legs, off of their own children while they are still alive, to the number of more than 65,000,000 to date, one forth of our population, all the while making the claim that it is a reproductive right, a health issue, and a cause for celebration in the streets and lighting up the Empire State Building. Well it certainly was a health issue for the child. If pulling the heads off of children while they are still alive does not count as terrorism, then someone please explain to me what does. No other nation on earth, save for the Jews, have slaughtered more children on the alters of Child Sacrifice that the United States Of America, truly, without question, the greatest terrorist organization earth has ever seen. And let me remind you, even God himself could not stop the Jews from throwing their children into the fires of Molech, he abandoned them and turned his back on Israel, if God turned his back on Israel for child sacrifice, just imagine how God must feel about the United States, taking child sacrifice to a whole new level, and then spreading that religious, patriotic practice over this entire globe. So massive is the evil nature of this Empire that right this minute you can step out your door, look up into the sky and witness the poisoning of this entire world by America. Just one chemical alone by Monsanto, is killing all life in the plants, insects, microbes and enzymes in the soil on a global level. America, is killing all life on earth. This is not fantasy, this is a fact. So with this fact, the pledge of Allegiance, in the verse, “one nation under God” is an absolute lie, God has nothing to do with a nation that is killing it’s own children, and all life on earth, war aside. Yes the greatest war mongering nation is America, true that, but it pales in comparison to killing everything that is alive. Just because a rapist is the greatest lover on earth, noes not dislodge his act. On the outside it might appear to some that America is free, but the prison bars of America are invisible. I wonder if any of you who read this know about Agenda 21, the NDAA, the Patriot Act, NSA, TSA, CIA, the Food Safety Act, WOTUS, EPA, the Small Arms Treaty of the United Nations, the “Global Compact For Safe And Orderly Regular Migration ” of the United Nations. And the greatest disinformation hoax of all, Climate Change in which the United Nations makes the claim that climate change is the reason why we must kill all life on earth, with Chemtrails, IE Geo Engineering. Climate is changing because the United States Military is causing it, is in control of the Weather, so yes, climate change is man made, it is made by the United States of America, and forced upon this entire globe, that is what the Paris Agreement was all about, for the nations of the earth, to beg for their weather to be controlled by American Military. Now, every single word I have said here is true, and all it takes to prove this, is a click of your mouse. The definition of ignorance is, “I don’t know” the definition of stupid is, “I don’t want to know” . That is my real name, I stand by what I say, and I am real easy to find.
I wish that more people in the WTBTS Community would comment on the investment portfolios, but in almost every single case, all conversations center around the Australian Royal Commission. Child abuse is horrible, that cannot be denied, and it was one of the main reasons for the destruction mentioned in the Hebrew scriptures, there was nothing Jehovah could do to stop the Jews from throwing their children into the fires of Molech. And to this very day, child sacrifice is alive and well, and no where greater than in the United States, where we have pulled the heads, arms, and legs off of some 65,000,000 of our own children while they are still alive, all the while making the claim that this nation is under the direction of God. But the United States Military, through Lockheed Martin, is involved in Geo Engineering, which if not stopped, will kill all life on earth, right down to the last bacteria, and the Watch Tower takes money out of the collection box and finances Geo Engineering, IE Chemtrails, through investments in Lockheed Martin, you did also mention Monsanto, and we invest in Monsanto, which has killed 90% of the insect population on earth, and is wiping out entire species, and poisoning this entire earth. While preaching everlasting life and a paradise earth at the doors, we are financing the destruction of all life on this planet. We finance Porn Hub a producer of pornography, we finance the largest possessor and distributor of pornography, including bestiality and child porn earth has ever seen with our investments in Google and Microsoft Bing, and there is not one person on planet earth, that can make the claim that the CIA, FBI, NSA and Police departments are not aware of this, but rather protect and defend this distribution network of pornography that the Watch Tower finances. Gossip publications as in Facebook, MySpace, Instagram we finance. We finance through investment the greatest financial scam this world has ever seen, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Washington Mutual, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, who all stole the homes and bank accounts of millions of people on a global scale. But the investment portfolios are ignored. To me, child abuse is one thing, as horrible as it is, but participation in global genocide, pales it in comparison.
WATCH TOWER INVESTMENTS
This is the first video of yours that I have watched. I can completely relate to every single word that you have spoken. I am 70 years old. I was baptized in 1969, came in in 1966, so I have been in for awhile. I am not disfellowshipped, but I cannot go to another meeting until it is cleaned up. I have a story to tell like we all do, but it is too long for me to tell right now, I don’t have the energy. But I feel compelled to say a few things. It was about 5 years ago that I began to notice the exaggerated deification of the governing body / faithful and not so discreet slave. In the new music, in the literature, in the talks, and especially in the prayers. Like you, I was completely disgusted by it, it was like bringing Baal worship into my faith and I want no part of that. I also began seriously paying close attention to every word, and holding up a mirror to those words and reflecting the words upon us, and found that we were far more guilty of our accusations than those we were accusing. The complete lack of any sort of love, in any form, even simple greetings, was completely missing, in fact, what was much more prevalent and palpable was the spirit of disdain from the top down. Then I began to dig deeper, and what I found was even more disgusting than the Baal worship and idolatry of the governing body. I found out this, that they are taking out money from the contribution box, and handing it over to Lockheed Martin. Lockheed martin makes weapons of war, but they also are the main instrument for Geo Engineering, IE Chemtrails. Spraying nano particles of Aluminum, Barium, Strontium, Lithium, fluoride, bacteria and viruses, and plastics into the atmosphere, the air we breath, on a global scale, if this is not stopped, it will kill every living thing on the earth. While preaching everlasting life and a paradise earth at the doors, we are financing the genocide of all humanity, and the annihilation of all living things on this earth, right down to the bacterial level. We own 50% of the company that makes the engines for drones, that slaughter the innocent all over this globe. We finance the largest distributor of the most vile forms of pornography earth has ever devised by taking money out of the contribution box, and handing it over to Google and Microsoft. We take money out of the contribution box, and finance the manufacturing and sales and distribution of tobacco products by Phillip Morse. We take money out of the contribution box and hand it over to a company called PORN HUB which produces pornography videos, and is also owned by Disney, which we also purchase stock in. There is allot more, we purchase stock in Bank Of America, Chase, Wells Fargo, and we all know what these institutions did to this entire world, they stole the homes and bank accounts of millions of people through fraud and deception. This information came to me when I wanted to understand the push for money from the platforms, when they asked us to sign a form to commit to a monthly donation amount, all sorts of bells went off in me. I went to find out the tax returns that are publicly available and there to my surprise is listed the investment portfolio. Now I ask, even though it is legal, how can a 501c corporation clam that charitable status, while maintaining vast investment portfolios ? Think of this, if 8,000,000 million witnesses donated just one dollar per meeting, times 5 meetings a week, times 4 weeks a month, that is 160,000,000 dollars tax free, all expenses paid, in your pocked cash every single month, for decades upon decades, not to mention all of the real estate donated, built, maintained and handed over to the corporation. If a company cannot make it on that, it needs to cut back a little, maybe give up the butter on the popcorn. Then it dawned on me, this is the entire purpose of disfellowshipping, it is to protect the contribution box, this is the entire purpose of the ministry, to get converts, for the contribution box, this is why the hammers of hell come down upon anyone who ask a simple question, or steps out of line, this is the reason why family must shun and never talk to anyone who perhaps has stumbled upon the same information I have. This is why the printing of literature, is to get the regular contributions, damn the cost of the ink and paper, we will make that back by the millions once we dip them in water, and enslave them. And I know for a fact that we all have donated a hell of allot more than a dollar a meeting. When I was away I used to even put money in an envelope and mail it to New York, and I know I was not alone in that. Well, that should give you some fat to chew for the moment. Thank you for the video, and I will watch for more to come, by the way, that is my real name, I am not hiding, and I am real easy to find.
THERE WILL BE A CHOICE TO MAKE
I am a deeply spiritual man, and I have written in an overwhelming way of my beliefs. I believe that there is a God, a creator of this magnificent universe we all find ourselves in. With evil deeds he cannot be tried, but he allows evil to exist for a time. The day will come when he no longer allows man to dominate man, and that firm belief gives me joy. I have left off my clinging to earthly things, and my focus is more in spiritual things. God has often used man to bring about his will and to inflict punishment. Allowing man to punish man, allows God to keep his hands clean of that evil. For the crime of child sacrifice, God had Israel brought into slavery. The Romans in 70CE took down the Temple which was abandoned by God when the Pharisees strung up his Son, and the curtain separating the Holy from the Most Holy was shredded in 33ce. We will once again witness God allowing man to punish man to bring about God’s will, and while it can be said that this has always been predicted, we are living in a time where it’s occurrence is assured. There is no way out for man as I see it, he is hell bent on destroying himself. But at the brink of that, the scriptures promise that God steps in, and ends this madness forever, with the historical backing of thousands of years as his witness, and the final threat of the extinction of all life on earth as his final witness, God will have the support of all living things to never again allow evil to dominate anywhere in this universe, both physical and spiritual. At the Garden of Eden, it wasn’t just about Adam and Eve, all of the angels in heaven were watching as Adam and Eve and Satan joined in together calling God a liar, and God in his infinite wisdom gave them some time to prove it. Chemtrails alone will bring about the extinction of all life on earth if not stopped, and this can happen in years, not decades more.We have no idea how long it has been going on, but we are already seeing 90% of the insects gone. I agree with you about some of the youth, they give me hope and encouragement, not that I believe that they will be able to effect change, but rather in the genetic makeup of man, how God put us together, with our built in humanism. Candice Owens ( although she is still tied to the religion of politics ) , Douglas Murry, Paul Joseph Watson, Soph, Lauren Southern, Faith Goody , The Patriot Nurse, Amazing Polly, One Godless Woman, Stephen Molyneux, Kim Iversen, Sargon of Akkad, Laura Loomer and many many more.Like you say, they are decent moral upright kids, who have their heads on straight, and they make me happy. I am not about doom and gloom, I am just trying to sound a warning, that where we are headed, is exactly where Christ said we would be headed, and we will arrive at a fork in the road and we will be forced to make a deliberate choice, each and every one of us, one way will lead to our destruction, one way will lead to our eternal happiness. At that time there will be no mistake on the two choices, it will not necessarily be made upon faith alone, because the presence of Christ will be evident for all to see, and the eighth king, the United Nations will be in full power as the sole government of the time. The choice will be clear and deliberate, there will be no misunderstanding, you will choose the kingdom of God ruled over by Christ, or you will choose the United Nations ruled over by Satan. Christ spoke of a great number of people which no man was able to number, choose life, but the vast majority of mankind, choose death. I try to make people aware by showing them what they need to know to choose life, so when that fork in the road is presented to them, the choice will be theirs and theirs alone to make. It is hard to make a choice when you don’t even know you have one, I try to make it clear that you do and what that choice is.
At the end of the one thousand year reign of Christ, he hands the Kingdom of God back over to his Father, after he has brought mankind back to a righteous standing before God, then God will deal directly with each one of us, you can talk to him directly without the mediation of Christ, and God will talk to you and answer all of your questions himself, but in order for that to happen, you have to be there. Christ had to be obedient to his Father, even in this unrighteous world, and so do we. You cannot make the claim you are not at the game, when you purchased the tickets, drove to the stadium, bought the jersey and cap, hotdog and beer, and are cheering for your side. If you are sitting in the stadium, you are at the game. It is allot like sitting in the pews of the Vatican, you are at the Catholic Church, and if Christ were to return at that very moment, who’s side would he think you were on. IF you did not spread the blood of the sacrificial lamb on the threshold of your home, the angel of death would not Passover you. God expects us to use the powers of reason that he gave us, and although the Hebrew Scriptures are not once again repeated, rewritten into the Greek Scriptures, does not invalidate the thoughts God wanted conveyed in the Old Testament. Yes, Christ fulfilled the Law Covenant for all of us, but he did not invalidate the benefit of the Hebrew Scriptures, in fact he constantly quoted from them. Yes Christ said that the law of the prophets hung upon two principles, but that did not alone invalidate the law covenant. We are not under the law covenant any longer, the visible representation of God and his laws were destroyed upon the death of Christ, on that day the curtain of the most holy was ripped and the ark was completely exposed to the world, a visible example of God removing himself from the Temple, and handing all authority over to his Son. when his Son proved himself faithful all the way to death. All authority in heaven and earth was not given to Christ until he proved himself obedient to God, by laying down his life for him, and all of mankind. When that happened, the visible representation of God , his temple, the scribes and Pharisees, the Law covenant, were all done away with, and we now walk in the faith that Christ taught us, but this faith is not without principles and rules, it will never be ok with God for us to do what ever we want. The Holidays of man are not spelled out in the scriptures, the scriptures are about the laws and principles of God, not mans laws and principles. And the Bible is a very small book, that last scripture in John tells us, that if all of the things that Christ ever did were written down in detail, this entire world could not contain the books written about him. How much more about his Father. Look, celebrations are not in themselves wrong, the Israelite’s had many in which musicians and dancing and feast took place, sanctioned by God. But this world is ruled over by Satan, this is his world, and in most cases, the celebration of man are demon inspired, and all you have to do to verify that, is simply look at the costumes.
CHRISTMAS AND HALLOWEEN
We always have to keep in mind what God thinks of things. The examples given us in scripture tells us that not all of the things that man does is acceptable to God, just because it means nothing to man, does not mean that God does not take the act seriously. Just the act of touching the Ark of the Covenant cost a person his life, a pinch of incense is all it would of taken for an early christian in the coliseum of Rome to save his life, eating a piece of fruit in the Garden of Eden cost all of mankind their lives, and soon, in the near future, mankind will be asked to take the mark of the beast, and if they do, it will cost them their lives, there will be no resurrection for them. The scriptures tell us that obedience is required by God, even Christ had to learn obedience to God, if we obey the rituals of man, against the laws of God it will never go well for us. There is nothing good about celebrating the death that Satan brought into this world, no matter how many costumes man uses to dress this holiday up, it is still the celebration of death, just like Christmas is the celebration of child sacrifice, no matter how beautiful the tree.
PRAYING FOR AMERICA
Neither Christ nor his Father are going to do anything to protect this, or any other nation. God DOES NOT get involved in the evil workings of man. The United States of America is the most evil nation earth has ever seen, up to and including pulling the heads, arms, and legs off of some 65,000,000 of it own children while they are still alive, and to ask God to protect defend or cure such evil is the epitome of blasphemy. It is never proper to pray for what God has devoted to destruction, and God has devoted to destruction all nations of men, including the United States. “In the days of those Kings, the God of heaven will set up a Kingdom that will never be brought to ruin, it will crush and put an end to all of those existing kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite” Daniel 2:44″ “Our Father who resides in heaven, let your name be sanctified, declared holy, let your kingdom come, let your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. John 3:16. It is proper to pray for Gods Kingdom, it is not proper to pray for the kingdoms of Satan. Luke 4: 5-8 says this ,”So he brought him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in an instant of time.Then the Devil said to him: “I will give you all this authority and their glory, because it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. If you, therefore, do an act of worship before me, it will all be yours.” In reply Jesus said to him: “It is written, ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’”
In the 55 years that I have been a student of the scriptures I have learned many valuable lessons. One of the largest most profound lessons that I have learned is about cognitive dissonance, in which when a new thought comes up against an entrenched belief, the human brain cycles over and over again, the memory which holds the greatest content. Even when faced with indisputable physical evidence, people will cling to entrenched beliefs, rather than expand intellectual capacity, which appears to be, that the human brain is infinitely capable of, proving once again, that cognitive dissonance is not altogether a natural protective reflex, but rather a stubborn willful exercise. A case in point, in which there is overwhelming archeological evidence is about human sacrifice. Man’s history is littered with humans, killing other humans, to appease some fictional god. This has been going on since Cain and Able, killing the innocent over a form of worship .In particular, child sacrifice, in which both history and scripture verify that the Jews were entrenched in child sacrifice that even God could not stop them, even Solomon got involved in it. Noah’s flood is an example of mankind ruining themselves to the point that even God cannot fix them. A person can drive themselves to the point of mental corruption that there is no recovering from, remember, God does not create robots, free will must be maintained, God does not interfere with free will, a person is free to choose evil, God is not going to stop him at this time, he has set apart from his own will, a time in which he allows evil to work out it’s full course. And in so doing, he prepared a buffer from himself, so that with evil, God can never be charged. The buffer between evil and God is Christ. God stepped back, and gave control to Christ, Christ is going to faithfully fix it, then hand this Kingdom back over to his Father. Until then, God is going to allow man to bring this earth and all life on it to the point that unless God steps in to stop this evil destruction, nothing will live through it. To accomplish this, God allows man to run amuck on the surface of this earth, physically, spiritually, mentally and intellectually, he lets man do what ever they want, for a time, then God will step in. The farther mankind can lead mankind away from God, the greater evil they can convince their fellow man to commit. And human sacrifice is the greatest of all evils in my view. There are lots of ways to get a man killed, and man has no shortage of implements for that, from the forceps of a doctor, pulling the head off of a child while they are still alive and the nurses weep at night on their beds, from the haunting of the screams of that child as it is being ripped apart, to the wars always fought on foreign soil, where the horrors of it are hidden from the view, of those who impose and finance them. Man continues to slaughter man. The message of Christ was that upon his return, it was not wars and earthquakes, and starvation, and pestilence, he said these things must take place, do not be terrified of them. His message was that what was going to get a man killed upon his return was what he believed. It is the belief system of man that will determine his survival upon Christ return. This belief that evil men and disobedient angels are held by God in a place of torture forever is an accusation against God of perpetuating eternal torment. It is accusing God of the very evil that he condemns. Many so called Christian faiths believe in something they call “Grace” in which God forgives them eternally no matter what evil they commit, a once saved, always saved, belief system. This belief is nullified by the belief in eternal torment. This would mean that God does not forgive them, so which is it ? This belief would also suggest that there is no resurrection from the dead, since the dead are not really dead, they have simply transmigrated to a different life form, and reside in heaven or hell, so therefore all of the scriptures referencing to the dead as residing in the dust and Gods words to Adam that man will return to the dust, are in fact lies, calling God a liar. This belief also suggest that the creation of the physical universe and earth are without purpose or planning, because no life form will reside in them, if man is to either be in heaven or hell, the earth is without purpose, once again calling God a liar, when he said that he made the earth to be inhabited by man forever. Not accusing you of a belief in the Trinity, but those who believe in the immortality of the soul, that is to say, that God has the power to create life, it is just that he does not have to power to destroy life, also believe in the Trinity, and in 55 years of talking about God to people I have found that there is nothing that anyone can do to change the cognitive dissonance of a Trinitarian, no matter how many times Jesus said he was the Son of God, they call him a liar, insisting that he is actually God himself, no matter how many times Jesus said he had a Father, they claim that he is simply lying, he actually is the Father. Well that will give you some fat to chew while I address some of the rest of the points you made.
About the name Jehovah;
Here is what I think about this. My experience has been, that it is only those in the EX JW community who hate the name of Jehovah. I have never experienced such venom poured out upon any subject as I have with the pronouncing of YHWH, which we all agree, the correct pronunciation is not known, we argue about a subject that we all agree we do not even know about, this is the childish nature of blind willful ignorance. But even beyond ignorance, which is simply “I don’t know” the definition of stupid is, “I don’t want to know” . But really, how important is the perfect pronunciation of the divine name ?
A google search of the worlds languages suggest that there is between 6000 to 7000 spoken languages in this world, and when the name Jehovah is spoken, it is pronounced different in every single one of them.
As I said in another comment, there is not one transliteratist or translator on planet earth that ever, not even once, translates YHWH as “Jesus” or “Satan” . Not one single EX-JW member has ever complained or called “Satanic” the name of Jesus. Yet the pronunciation is commonly agreed upon as being Yeshua, not even close to the name Jesus as pronounced in English, I have never in my life heard of anyone arguing that point. Every single one of the members of the EX-JW community freely use the name Jesus, not one of them have rejected that pronunciation. There are hundreds of thousands of people in the Latin cultures who have as their birth name JESUS. In conversational English, when we here the name of Jesus, we automatically, without having to give a thought to, know if it is a human we are talking about, or if it is the Biblical Christ we are talking about. It never turns into a knock down dragged out fight over the title.
It could easily be assumed that Satan himself would defame the name of YHWH by taking it on and applying it to himself and committing all sorts of blasphemous atrocities using that name. So what !!!!! Is YHWH supposed to change his name to accommodate Satan, each and every time Satan steals whatever name God would give himself, like a name game of wack – a – mole. ??? Is the creator of the universe not entitled to his own name ???
