Pagan Christmas tree not allowed to bear a Christian cross

Hmmm. Since I began my journey in Torah some time ago, more and more things about ‘churchianity’ have bothered me. I’ve written before about the similarities of God’s law and shariah law – the irony for many lawless Christians is that being forced to live under hated shariah will be the closest they come in life to living under God’s law. Of course shariah is not from a godly faith, but it’s ironic! Read more here: Link

Moving on, this story really highlights the ill-wisdom of so many Christians – up in arms because they aren’t allowed to put a cross on top of a pagan ‘Christmas’ tree: Link

So I’m going to ask you – do you not think that the weight and power – the very tipping point of evil, has come now? Yes, God is taking aim at Christians through this act, but I’m referring to the overwhelming weight of evil – the majority of folks are either ignorant or willfully ignoring God’s laws, and His words when He says in Deuternomy 12:29-32:

29 When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;

30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

31 Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

The last line being the most important part, because Christmas and Easter are NOT in the bible, and so instead of worshipping Him as He likes, we have ignored His feasts and appointed times, and instead, inserted our own pagan festivals in their stead. This can NEVER please God, and that is why outraged, ignorant Christians are going to shout in indignation when the pagan, satanic world around them refuses to let them dress up the pagan ‘Christmas’ tree with the precious cross of Christ.

Blunt, but it’s true.

God Bless you

Hyper Grace doctrine – why the church is open to being deceived

Christians (awake ones that I know, anyway) talk a lot about deception. We sometimes might sound paranoid, but we are called to be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves (Matt 10:16).

So what does it mean to be as wise as serpents?

It means to be discerning. It means to know and recognise sin and the works of the devil. And it’s not easy, I can tell you! I have found over the years that I have been misled, misguided on a number of occassions and on a number of different issues.

Discernment, then, is perhaps like a muscle – that if you exercise it in avoiding sin, that you may be able to see other things which are sinful. A bit like removing the beam from your own eye, before helping your pal to take out the speck from their own, we need to realise that until or unless we walk with God, avoiding sin, we will not even realistically be able to SEE the sin around us.

If we don’t know His word, we cannot even know right from wrong, and if sin is trangression of the law (1 John 3:4) then we absolutely need to know the law.

transgression

Grace is a blessing – it’s God’s unmerited favour. Wow! It’s unmerited because I can NEVER be as good as God, and nothing I do can make me perfect. Willfully disregarding the law, however, is not a cause for thanking God for Grace, it’s an abuse of Grace, isn’t it?

I’ve written enough about that before to just redirect you there. Are we under the Law, or under Grace?

The modern church is open to more and more deception because it has turned it’s back on righteousness, as if trying to be righteous is ‘works’ and that we mustn’t even try to be good. How foolish – because if sin is an open door to satan, then ignoring the law and being ignorant of it is an open door. Grace is for the sin you confess! How can you confess your sins if you ignore the law! You can’t.

This is a Hyper Grace doctrine. The church has become reliant on Grace for everything, and we don’t even know what sin we should be confessing. I know someone, a great guy, so warm and friendly, and what I can only describe as a living Christian – he is just a lovely person all the time to everybody. Yet he said to me that the Muslims worship the same God we do, they just don’t have Jesus!

Um…

John 14 6

Without Jesus they CANNOT have God! And no, they can’t even say that Jesus is a prophet, because in doing so they are saying Mohammed is ‘the way’ and we know that Jesus is ‘the Way’ (and the ONLY way).

If we don’t know the Word, we cannot know sin. If we do not know sin, we cannot confess it. If we cannot confess it, we cannot learn to avoid it, and without knowing what sin is, we cannot discern it and avoid deception.

Get yourselves a KJV and read it. I thought reading the KJV would be hard work, but it’s not. It’s easy once you start. At least it is complete. Only the KJV is complete and easily available at this time in history. I really recommend that if you aren’t already, get into the word. Learn the law and try your best to apply it. Ask God to write it on your heart, so that you have joy in it, and so that you might be set apart from deception.

God Bless you

Will you be praying against Mekudeshet?

This ‘blessing’ (which is what Mekudeshet means) is very sinister indeed. Please watch the video and prepare to stand against this evil in prayer.

Why non-Christians ‘hate’ Christians

Now, I’ve put ‘hate’ in quotes there, because as you’ll see this isn’t real hatred. It’s not because of what we stand for, it’s something much more fundamental, and I’ll explain this from my own experience.

There was a time in my life where I was very New Agey in outlook. I really bought into all that ‘self empowerment’ stuff, and worked hard at it. The thing was it just didn’t work for me. Everything I tried, well, I got no results. But I was not happy and not well, and I knew that I couldn’t live like that, and one day, in desperation, I prayed to God in Jesus’ name, and He answered my prayer immediately. It was a real ‘kapow’ moment! My life was changed there and then, because I was profoundly moved by the experience. I was also, however, rather bothered by what I had just found out.

You see when you discover that God is real, you have no choice but to follow Him, to believe in Him and try to do His will. This can mean accepting things you really didn’t want to before.

In fact I really didn’t want to be a Christian – I really didn’t – that word, well, it made me cringe. I saw Christians as being self-righteous, I saw them as at best inflexible, and at worst, potential tyrants! I felt a deep physical cringing when I thought about them, or when faced with their views. I didn’t know my bible, I didn’t know God well – we’d just met as far as I was aware. So I started off walking MY walk with God.

You can imagine that didn’t last long – God has His ways, doesn’t He?

But what I want to bring across to you is that sinners feel the demonic clutches of the devil and cringe when they are faced with Christianity. When steeped in sin, humans find such goodness repellant. There are so many out there who would like to attribute the goodness you find in the family of God to some other, less pure, motive.

We know it is the work of the Holy Spirit, who brings us into all knowledge – and Yeshua, the perfector of our faith! But when lost in sin, those things are just like anti-matter – people can’t cope with it.

I remember the feeling so well I wanted to share it with you. I think it’s important to realise that the reaction we get is a reaction to Yeshua, and the reaction comes from oppressing spirits who HAVE that person in BONDAGE to sin.

I was in bondage to sin – and it’s taken time, and God has been patient with me, mapping out the route, and preparing the ground for me to walk away from sin. Step by step He has set me free!

I’m glad to say that that initial discomfort didn’t last long, even if some of my sins and strongholds persisted. I hope that if you’re a non-Christian reading this you’ll take heart – God loves you, and wants you – call upon Him and be saved from the evils of this world. Then comes the journey of a lifetime, and one I can’t recommend highly enough to you. As a former New Ager, I can tell you that this journey is the real deal, not some foolish attempt to raise mankind to godhood. This is all God’s work – I can claim no credit for the transformation He has wrought in me, and which still continues to this day.

At the moment He is still healing me, He is teaching me. He is protecting me, and He is nurturing me. Not everything is where is needs to be for me to be comfortable, but each step is a step forward.

So for any of you out there who feel that deep aversion to Christianity, look at the devil as the likely cause – he has you in his grip, and yet the arms you need to be in are those of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen to that!

God Bless you

Pope calls for Idolatry

Pope Francis, an idolater, has suggested that we too should engage in idolatry to an image of the infant Jesus. This is from the Catholic Herald:

“People should take the little figurine of Jesus from their Nativity scene and kiss it, “and tell Jesus, ‘I want to humble like you, humble like God,’” the Pope said today during his weekly general audience in St. Peter’s Square. […]

“In order to grow in the faith, we need to reflect more often on baby Jesus,” who came into the world in such a humble way “for us,” he said.

“This is a great mystery: God is humble. We, who are proud, full of vanity, who think we’re a big deal, yet we’re nothing. He is great, he is humble and he became a child. This is a true mystery. God is humble. This is beautiful,” the Pope said.

While the New Testament offers few accounts of Jesus’s infancy and early childhood, the pope said people can still learn a lot by looking at the children in the world.

“We discover, most of all, that children want our attention. They have to be at the centre of attention – because they’re proud? No. Because they need to feel protected,” he said.

“We, too, have to put Jesus at the centre of our lives and realise, even if it seems paradoxical, that we have a responsibility to protect him.

“He wants to be in our arms, he wants to be looked after and be able to fix his gaze onto ours,” he said.

Just as being affectionate to a child can make him or her smile, people can “make baby Jesus smile by demonstrating our love and our joy because he is among us.”
“His smile is a sign of that love that gives us assurances of being loved,” the pope said.” Source

I really don’t know what his intention is here – I mean if he really knows the bible then he knows that he is exhorting believers to commit an abomination in the sight of God – to break the second commandment!

But as I’ve written before, the catholic church has changed the ten commandments to suit it’s own agenda, presumably, and to serve the gods it worships. Link

Let me be crystal clear here, in case you have fallen for the notion that catholicism is a form of Christianity, it is NOT it is a SYSTEM, and it is SINFUL. It involves breaking the commandments of God – venerating the bones of dead people, idolatry, and mariolatry, the worship of Mary. It involves breaking the commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day (NOT Sunday!), and it involves talking to the dead, i.e. praying to their appointed saints. Every catholic church has within it the relics of a dead saint – in other words, their bones. This makes the whole building UNCLEAN for the worship of YHWH!

The pope talks a lot about the ‘mysteries’ of the faith – well, Mystery Babylon is her name, and the call is to COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!

It is very sad to think of those who continue in this – God is merciful, and I believe he holds us reponsible for what we know. Once we know the truth, it is then our responsibility to walk in that truth. I pray that catholics around the world will be drawn to Yeshua in truth, and turn their backs on this sinful organisation.

The fish – symbol of Christianity?

I found this last night, and I’ve heard similar information in the past – and it all confirms that God’s word is clear – NO IMAGES! Even the cross as a symbol has all kinds of problems and issues (it is likely that Yeshua was crucified on a pole rather than a cross).

Christian_fish1

So what this site (Link) has to say is interesting:

“Origins

Greeks, Romans, and many other pagans used the fish symbol before Christians. In pagan beliefs, Ichthys was the offspring of the ancient Sea goddess Atargatis, and was known in various mythic systems as Tirgata, Aphrodite, Pelagia, or Delphine. The word also meant “womb” and “dolphin” in some tongues. Before Christianity adopted the fish symbol, it was known by pagans as “the Great Mother”, and “womb”. Its link to fertility, birth, and the natural force of women was acknowledged also by the Celts, as well as pagan cultures throughout northern Europe. In certain non-Christian beliefs the fish also has been identified with reincarnation and the life force.[4]

It goes on to give the symbolic meaning of the symbol in the way it was used in Christianity:

“Symbolic meaning

ΙΧΘΥΣ (Ichthus) is an acronym/acrostic[5] for “Ίησοῦς Χριστός, Θεοῦ Υἱός, Σωτήρ“, (Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr), which translates into English as “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour”.

Iota (i) is the first letter of Iēsous (Ἰησοῦς), Greek for “Jesus“.

Chi (ch) is the first letter of Christos (Χριστός), Greek for “anointed”.

Theta (th) is the first letter of Theou (Θεου), Greek for “God’s”, the genitive case of Θεóς, Theos, Greek for “God”.

Upsilon (y) is the first letter of (h)uios[6] (Υἱός), Greek for “Son”.

Sigma (s) is the first letter of sōtēr (Σωτήρ), Greek for “Savior”.

This explanation is given among others by Augustine in his Civitate Dei,[7] where he notes that the generating sentence ” Ἰησοῦς Χρειστὸς [sic] Θεοῦ Υἱὸς Σωτήρ” has 27 letters, i.e. 3 x 3 x 3, which in that age indicated power.[8] Augustine quotes also an ancient text from the Sibylline oracles[9] whose verses are an acrostic of the generating sentence.”

The last paragraph should tell you everything you need to know – “the generating sentence has 27 letters […] which in that age indicated power.” This is NOT scriptural!

So please ponder this information and ask yourself if a symbol which was ever used for pagan worship or veneration can ever be then used as a symbol of our faith in God? I don’t believe so.

The site has useful information on many symbols: Link
