Maybe Babylon is as a symbol of “false worship” in seminary textbooks and in many old Christian writings, but the Bible itself, indeed The Revelation of Jesus Christ (as given to John) overrules. 

In Rev. 17 and 18 you can find the interpretation of who the Whore of Babylon actually is, “that great city”, and it says “wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness”. 

The Vatican is a sucking parasite and does not make anybody rich. This Babylon does. And in her is the blood of all that were slain upon the earth. 

That’s a good description of a “great city” that enriches kings all around the planet with its dollars and its foreign spending, and moves merchandise trade around the earth with the international medium of exchange (the dollar) and its multinational monsters. 

The woman sitteth upon the seven kings, “five are fallen”, as described in Daniel, that is, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece. “One is” would be Rome. “One is yet to come”, that would be the last superpower on Earth before the time of the Beast, as described in Rev. 17 because who else? The Roman Catholic Church is not so powerful, hah, somebody just engineered a coup d’etat to finally install the Jesuit socialist in power at the Vatican. 

The most fitting entity for Rev. 17 today is either Washington D. C. or New York, but most likely the latter because of so much talk of trade and merchandise. And it sits on the seventh mountain, the seventh world kingdom, and that would be the United States of America.  

The Jesuit is ‘preparing the flock” to be sheared and butchered by the Beast, so he could be the False Prophet of Rev. 13. 

Get ready, to be ready, to meet your maker, after the November elections and the inauguration it is going to be a wild, wild, ride. The enemies of the “everyday man” are now saying it is time for “the elites to rise up against the masses”. Maybe when Trump said “the gloves are off”, he was talking about those “elites”  themselves.

Pope, migrants,and the Gospel

April 9, 2016

Bergoglio, the current head of state in the Vatican, has performed a ceremonial washing of the feet of migrants of many faiths, Muslims, Orthodox, Hindu, Catholics. He condemned arms makers that want war and division, though the recent bombings were done with homemade concoctions and devices.

True enough on the war industry.

But then this Jesuit promotes the aggressions and theft of welfare states.

 

But “children of the same God”? Which one of the tens of thousands of Hindu gods would that “one” be? And which Muslim god would that be, since their imams claim that God has no sons? And what of the Bible, that says in John 3:36 that we are sons of God because we believe on Jesus Christ, and that those who do not believe on him once given the chance, “the wrath of God abide the on him.”

Why did Americans accept “modern” substitutes for their (KJ) BIbles?

January 6, 2016

I am a “product” of the Jesus movement, and my father was a Pentecostal pastor, associated by some people with the rise of the Pentecostal movement, and I once briefly worked with Charismatic-associated missionary organization.

All of that has nothing to do with a more “accessible” Bible.

The KJB never lost “accessibility”. American Christians only began to accept substitutes in the post-WWII years. “Acceptance” got more traction in England earlier, surely due to their nobility-class oriented culture, or the push in clerical circles for it earlier on, and more centralization of clerical authority. And the ascendance of man’s wisdom over God’s wisdom with the quicker takeover of Darwin’s revived ancient pagan myth, dressed up in “modern language”.

There was also the decay in the faith of pastors educated in the seminaries, which became hotbeds for deviation from the faith of the fathers. Questioning miracles, Creation, and so on, and the heavy drumbeat in the media that youngsters were getting their news from, like a run of about a decade I remember that Time Magazine always put the Jesus Seminar foolishness on their front cover. Add to that the commands from wickedness in high places to expunge God from education and from city squares. Young people in my generation were indoctrinated with doubt and godlessness.

I was part of that Jesus’ people movement in fact for many years. I used the KJB without a good understanding of why except that it was obviously “stronger” language.

Believers did NOT have a problem with it in the 1950s, and even them most scholars, including in Divinity School with lots of alphabet titles after their names, would have said that the average KING JAMES Bible reader was of less scholarly education than readers of “modern” translations.

Coup at the Vatican?

October 9, 2015

Word is the system they have set up for exchanging payments among banks had cut off the Vatican a few weeks before Pope Benedict announced his resignation.Visitors to the various museums inside the Vatican could not make payments with their credit cards, they had to pay with cash. A major hit on their daily receipts no doubt.

About two hours or so after he announced his retirement, transactions were restored.

Too many babies, or too many thieves and vipers?

September 20, 2015

I never said that anybody who said there was “overpopulation” was a Malthus or a Sanger. But they use the same argument as Margaret Sanger did about poor people. The main difference is they are not creating an organization like she did whose purpose is to eliminate as many “unfit” and poor people as possible, and by the way, eugenically determined bad racial stock (according to her and her fellow arrogant elites).

I do agree that #1, I would advise people not to have more kids than they would be able to support adequately, but I will not be so arrogant as to presume that my opinion on the matter counts more than theirs. If you don’t have the faith for it, don’t have them, use contraception or abstention. #2 There are too many families that have to live too scarcely in the world.

But item #2 has a cause, and the cause is NOT because the poor are obeying the first Biblical commandment that God gave mankind.

It’s because there are too many thieves and vipers in central banks who use their network of friends and secret societies to execute their plots against the rest of us and rob the nations with their sneaky tactics. The tactics are ever more transparent now with some corners of the Internet still free for information interchange.

For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. – Luke 8:17

So why agree with these liars and deceivers, when in reality, it is the political class, the arrogant class, the robber cliques, the deceivers, that are the cause? And there is a streak of paganism here, because it is a camel’s nose, and the camel is the infant sacrifices made in old times to the gods of Mammon, Molech, and Baal. This is one reason the command government is pushing so hard for contraceptives that serve also as abortifacients.

By the way, that was the hidden back story of the Hobby Lobby case. They did not object to paying for contraception, actually. Obamacare listed all the FDA approved “contraceptives”. Hobby Lobby had already provided coverage for 16 different contraceptives, including the “birth control pill”. They objected to the other ones that are abortifacients, according to the only possible scientific and objective definition of a new human being, that being the genome in the chromosomes of the zygote. That’s another term for what God showed David in Psalm 138, “God’s book” as it is called there.

The lie of “overpopulation” and “too many babies” comes from the Father of Lies, after all, because he is right now “seeking whom he may devour”, because he “knoweth he hath but a short time” left before Jesus comes back and slays his Beast with the Sword that cometh from the mouth of the Lion of Judah himself and puts Lucifer in chains.

He hates people, it’s not “overpopulation” [sic] he hates, it’s anybody who is born, including his Satan worshippers, Luciferians, and other spiritually useful idiots as he regards them, like he manipulated Eve.

Because every single human being that is born has the potential to be a saved soul. And Satan demands human sacrifice.

The backwards thinking of “regressives”

September 13, 2015

Marriages were originally IMPLICIT contracts between two parties, and often withh the families engaged. Most were common law marriages, they just moved in together, the aspirant having had the okay of the father. (Fathers know guys better than the daughters do, at least back in those days).

The fact of the matter is, the natural nuclear family (husband, wife, children) is the institution that cultivates the strongest protection against state oppression. That went out the window with the push for state indoctrination of the next generations disguised as “free” academic education and then “forced” induction into the indoctrination centers.

The other institution that cultivates protection against meek pushover subservience to oppressors’ memes are religious institutions, this according to prominent agnostic economist and libertarian writer Murray Rothbard and atheist economist Walter Block.

No wonder Karl Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto that they had to exterminate the “bourgeois” institution of marriage and family. Total devotion to the collectivist mentality of worker ants is their goal.  The lying viper never wanted a “workers’ paradise”, he wanted his own special groups to dictate.

The modern heirs of Malthus and Marx think there are too many poor people in the world. That’s why they want to “protect” us from bad people, push groupthink, collectivist mentality. They think like the Orwellian uppermost crust of the “Inner Party”, like the Animal Farm where everyone has to be EQUAL but SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.

So they push Groupthink disguised as “diversity”;

Inequality disguised as “equality”;

Unemployment disguised as “minimum wage”, now morphed to “living wage”;

Racism and racial preferences disguised as “anti-racism”, “affirmative action”,

Censorship and enforcement of group-think disguised as “equality” under the law;

Bullying libertarians, whistleblowers, pro-lifers and those of religious faith, and those who think differently under the guise of “equality” as a meaningless rant and “non-discrimination”,

Violating religious liberty under the guise of claiming to defend it;

And generally wearing sheepskin while inside they are “ravenous wolves”.

 

Madonna’s openly gay brother defends Kim Davis’ rights

September 7, 2015

The new thoughtcrime regime drew a line in the sand. Two thirds of Kentucky’s voters recently passed a constitutional amendment to incorporate into law what has been understood for marriage licenses for since there were any marriage licenses. Marriage a union of man and woman according to the understanding of the Framers at the time, as one of those “self-evident” truths they referred to in the Declaration of Independence.

At this next URL, an atheist defends Kim Davis:

And here’s a report on Madonna’s openly gay brother defending Kim Davis and blasting the militant gays for their “sore winning”:

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/madonna-openly-gay-brother-defends-ky-clerk-kim-davis-article-1.2350959

I agree with Chris Cantrell above, this is all about control. Centralizing government command-and-control obedience. Punishing thoughtcrime. They’re showing their hand with this. They had to use something to consolidate the Gramschi strategy for socialist tyranny.

(See this link for an explanation of the Gramsci strategy: http://www.wnd.com/2000/09/103/.)

See 2 Samuel 15 and Daniel 11 for examples of the strategies used by socialists today,  one by an ancient power-hungry operator and another a prophecy of the times we are living in.

 

God is NOT dead, He still heals and answers prayer! (Else why pray?)

August 30, 2015

Found at “Reasonable Faith” from Twitter:

http://tinyurl.com/nr7ze7h

The panelist on the video had said that the purpose of the miracles during the time of Christ was to establish his divinity, but one member of the audience asked why that reasoning does not apply today.  The panelists replies that people today do not need such miracles because there is enough evidence already.

He said God could write across the sky that this is all his, worship him, or some equivalent, it would “compel” belief, but anyone sincerely open to the truth has enough evidence available. He even quoted Pascal to that effect.

But consider the same reasoning they use for today applies to the time of Christ as well, and vice versa. All of it. Science today offers more evidence for the Bible than ever before available to mankind, save those who witnessed direct miracles.

And consider that Jesus Christ was also rejected by the rulers and the peers of his own generation, and that was the generation that witnessed those same miracles.

Believers can see that scientific knowledge available today means that more evidence of the Bible is available to us who are alive today than ever in history, but that the high priests of Scientism claim the opposite is true.

The damnable idea that God does not act according to his promises, according to the doctrine of dispensations, is a lie that results in Christians telling others that only the Devil does miracles today.

In fact, dispensationalists are confused and confusing. If you say God says something in the Old Testament that does not apply in the new, then it is a logical self-contradiction to say something applies after. There is no clear indication in any scripture that God would do this.

For example, in the scriptures Paul used to explain how there is no salvation at all in the works of the Laws of Moses, he used examples from the Old Testament to demonstrate it logically. Salvation by works saved nobody in the Old Testament, and the “just shall live by FAITH” was one scripture from the Tanukh to help show this. Hebrews 11 should be enough to destroy this switch-up in doctrines of works and grace, but no, somebody like Charles Darby and Cyrus Scofield wrote copious notes that alter the meaning of scripture, wresting them to their own destruction.

“In the times of this ignorance God winked at”, says Paul, then speaking about the Greeks and all their false gods and idols, but now he calls us to “study the scriptures to see if these things be so”.

Not for nothing the translations based on Alexandrian manuscripts leave out the last half of the last chapter of Mark. But that leaves the gospel on a very strange note, with Jesus Christ still in the grave. What kind of gospel –“good news”– is that??*!!? Paul said that would mean our faith is in vain:

1 Corinthians 15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

And what does it say in the ending of Mark?

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

It doesn’t say “them that believe in this generation”, it says “them that believe”.

Something else. Nothing contradicts the word of God, and every part of scripture is the word of God:

Isaiah 8:20 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 

20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Christ gave the lesson of the faith of a mustard seed being enough to move mountains as a principle of faith, NOT of his divinity, and he placed no conditions or disclaimers in the passage.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” – James 1:7

Get that? NO variableness, NO changing in God’s gifts.

“Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

 

Does God punish the innocent for the sins of others?

August 23, 2015

I suggest a new perspective on the passage used by a webmaster at the link http://www.religioustolerance.org/sin_trans.htm:

“Yes, God can personally take an active role in transferring punishment among generations from the guilty to the innocent:

…for which you quoted:  “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them (idols), nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”

My comment to the writer follows here (comments are not accepted at the web pages there).

Spiritually speaking, especially after the universally expiatory sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for the sins of the world for all those who believe in him, I do not know of any Christian theology or Christian teacher that says that the sins of the unbeliever can be laid at the feet of another. Jesus is THE Sacrificial Lamb, period.

As to consequences in the world, the quoted scripture is best understood in its context. The very next verse shows that it is not set in stone, so to speak:

“And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.” – Exodus 20:6

It is also best to take this in the context of even the laws of Moses it’s in. I doubt you know how much it’s mentioned, your tolerance theme does not seem to reach into much Biblical scholarship. Many pastors may not have satisfactory answers, but that’s true about many, many things, in some groups more than others.

Rahab, Ruth, Naaman, even Abraham himself were raised in wicked cultures and renounced the sins of their pagan upbringing, so Exodus 20:5 cannot mean that there is an inescapable scapegoating of the children in the sense implied by your quote. It’s illogical for one who believes the Bible, whether they see it or not, no matter.

The passage is true, though, in this physical world, as a general spiritual truth as good as gravity. The children suffer for the sins of the parents and grandparents, as a natural consequence. Those raised in a culture that practices child sacrifice is more likely to follow suit. Those raised by abusive parents are more likely to have problems that affect children and grandchildren. We now have fourth generation welfare babies who are suffering for the sins of the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration. We have even great-grandchildren suffering for the sins of the evil American Congress of 1913, who inflict us to this day with the evil oppressions of the Federal Reserve Bank so-called, fiat currency, and the income tax, and the sins of our own antecedents that accepted this.

The God of the Bible is a God of love and of perfect justice.

“And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.” – Exodus 20:6

It is also best to take this in the context of even the laws of Moses it’s in. I doubt you know how much it’s mentioned, your tolerance theme does not seem to reach into much Biblical scholarship. Many pastors may not have satisfactory answers, but that’s true about many, many things, in some groups more than others.

Gov schools vs. Parents’ Choice

August 1, 2015

Not to worry. If a nearly illiterate 3rd grade dropout and single mother like Sonya Carson in one of the poorest and most violent areas of the nation in Detroit’s slums, can raise her boy become a pediatric neurosurgeon, then the children who depend on their parents’ decisions for their education have a much better hope than government indoctrination factories.

Because “free” government schools are not free at all. They come at a cost of an education in the real world. The cost is to the generation that they indoctrinate. The government in those books is always the best one you can have (wink wink) and the rulers look out for you (wink wink).

USA gov centers spend twice per student over private schools average, with much better consistent scores. Minneapolis, D.C., and Florida with vouchers programs showed that the effect has nothing to do with them being better students, they became better students.

Jaime Escalante showed that too. His calculus students were accused of cheating in the AP test because the rulers couldn’t believe it. The Teachers Unions went to war against him till he finally returned to Bolivia disgusted.

My youngest boy’s kindergarten teacher taught her students as much as they could learn her first year, she told me. The next year the principal told her to slow down, the first grade teacher had nothing to teach them they didn’t already know.

But it’s not just the academic quality of the education, or that they government indoctrination centers (GICs) teach their own version of history that treats the current conquering rulers the best. The natural nuclear family unit is the best fortress against damage to the children of the next generation by the ruling political class. And respect for the property and economic freedom of families is the best defense against economic assaults by those who have more against those who have less.

Governments want the people to identify first as faithful compliant subjects, above family and above religions. They hate independent religious thinking. That’s why the USA national government (a “federal” government would respect its member states) treats religious thinking as the enemy. They might deign to allow an exemption for a religious organization, for tactical purposes only. Doing so drives a wedge between the organization’s leaders and its outside followers, makes them beholden to the rulers for the “exemption”, recruits some of them in getting its followers to go along, trains the layperson to go along too, and provides a fraudulent but thin cover story for respect for freedom of religion, while making people forget that religious freedom is an INDIVIDUAL’s NATURAL AND GOD-GIVEN RIGHT.

Letting governments control what students learn is the best way to heard them toward groupthink under tyranny.  Anti-government web sites are one of the new enemies in government-approved crime shows. But they should be encouraged. When everybody follows the government-mandated thinking on who is enemy, that is the kind of world George Orwell warned against.

Gov propaganda training? Enough!
