LEGALISM, LAWLESSNESS, AND HALLOWEEN.

My personal belief is that the Devil only has as much of Halloween as you are willing to give him…

Legalism is heresy. Antinomianism is the other heresy… If you imagine a very long line with Biblical Christianity in the dead center, Legalism is on the far right and antinomianism is on the far left. Truth is in the middle.

Legalism has you working your way to Heaven, earning Celestial Brownie Points… your righteousness and your justification… Heaven itself depends on your obedience to the Law… Not eating pork and Sabbath church attendance become the focal point of your religion (totally ignoring the rest of the Torah)… You can spot a legalist on Facebook because they are uncontrollable braggarts, and they would rather win a Christian away from Jesus, grace, and faith than win a sinner on his way to Hell…

Antinomianism is lawlessness… Murder, rape, witchcraft, free love, homosexuality, transgenderism, pornography, prostitution… it is all okay; you are under the Blood, Jesus paid it all and so whatever you do is okay with God… This is lawlessness and it is heresy.

Christianity teaches that you are saved by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ… Jesus became sin for you so that you, through him, might become the very righteousness of God. If you have become “the righteousness of God,” nothing, absolutely nothing you can do can make you any more righteous. You have been justified… all the Sabbath Church services and the rest of your life without pork will not make the slightest difference. Christians are led by the Spirit… those who are led by the Spirit are not under the Law. Those who seek to be justified by going to church on Saturday and/or not eating pork are “severed from Christ” and they “fall from grace…”

Christianity teaches a living relationship with a living God… it is active and works in the present tense. Rejecting legalism, understanding that the New Testament calls the Ten Commandments a “Ministry of Death” and a “ministry of condemnation,” they never see themselves as under the law or obligated to follow the commandments… they have nothing to brag about except Jesus and his finished work… On the other hand, Jesus said to deny yourself, take up your cross and follow him… We are admonished to “fix our eyes on Jesus.” In so doing, we reject antinomianism and lawlessness… We have the whole Bible to teach us what God likes but we are free from the Law. How does this work?

Christians love Jesus. Our sin cost Jesus his life’s Blood. My sin hurts Jesus… I can never assume that I am free to do the things that hurt him. I deny myself those pleasures, I take up my cross, I die to myself, I follow Jesus and I fix my eyes on him. The Spirit leads me in real time… One who is doing those things is not going to commit gross sin. It is very hard to sleep with your neighbor’s spouse or steal his lawnmower if you are living like that… This is a ministry of righteousness.

One of the great principles of Christianity is that God sees the heart. Romans 14 tells us clearly that something that is not sin for one believer may very well be sin for another believer. That chapter ends with a warning that “anything done without faith is sin.” If I can greet children at the door and give them candy in Jesus’ name and bless them, it is not sin. If you believe that by opening that door and giving that child a piece of candy, you are somehow participating in a demonic ritual, for you to do so would be sin… This is a principle that the Legalist rejects completely, and baby Christians find difficult to comprehend… However, understanding this principle will set you free.

We must love Jesus and follow him. Our faith must be in Christ alone… The Legalist adds works to faith and in doing so loses his salvation. The Lawless, lost in antinomianism, do not love Jesus, nor do they follow him… You cannot love Jesus and live a lifestyle that hurts him and nails him to the cross. You cannot claim to follow him while consistently and without remorse doing things that He would never do.

On the question of churches participating in Halloween, it depends on their motives… As a matter of fact, some Christians there may be perfectly okay and right with God while others, at the same event, may be sinning… “Anything done without faith is sin.”

My personal belief is that the Devil only has as much of Halloween as you are willing to give him. If you give him the day, it is his day. If you insist that it is the day that the Lord has made, Satan gets none of it.

While most churches are operating in blissful ignorance, some are fully aware. There are two ways to look at it… You can see it as participating with the Devil in a demonic ritual, or you can see it as taking back for Jesus that which the Devil has stolen…

Most churches that I know personally are trying to take back the day for Jesus and provide a fun but safe place for children who might otherwise be involved with or even hurt by the Satanists… Some of them push the line very hard and some cross over the line. Others back off from the line and keep their celebration from any appearance of evil… All of them seem to keep children from the Satanists who would hurt them…

This is very much a matter of how you look at it… I was never caught up in any kind of Satanic darkness… I have never been into the occult. Halloween is only evil in the books… for me, it was always an innocent exercise in imagination. For me, it is easy to give a child candy or participate in a church Fall Festival and think only of God and of protecting and blessing children. I would imagine that it might be much more difficult for one with much experience and strong connections to the dark side…

My final word is this… “He who is weak eats only vegetables while he who is strong in the faith eats anything… nonetheless, to him who thinks it is sin, it is sin. Anything done without faith is sin…” (Romans 14) Whatever you do, don’t sin…

THE WESTERN WARP

We were Western to the core… only slightly reformed and modified Catholics…

As Western Christians, our thinking has been warped. In spite of the Reformation, our churches, our thinking, and our doctrine are much more closely related to Rome than to Jerusalem. We have all but forgotten that Jesus was Jewish, all of the Disciples were Jewish, the first converts were Jewish, and the first churches were Jewish. The crucifixion, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, the ascension, the coming of the Spirit on Pentecost… It was all in Jerusalem and it was all Jewish.

As time went on, the Church became very much Western. The Roman Catholic Pagan Organization cut off the last of the connections to Judaism. Martin Luther was extremely Antisemitic and he passed that down to all who would follow him. None of the Reformers ever looked past Rome and back to Jerusalem… they were not intent on reestablishing Christianity and reconnecting it to its ancient roots, but only in reforming that which Rome had created. The churches that we grew up in were simply reformed versions of the Roman Church…

Our holidays were Roman, not Christian. Our meetings were on Sunday, not the Sabbath. We knew nothing of the Jewish Feasts or how very connected they were to Jesus Christ and our own faith… We were Western to the core… only slightly reformed and modified Catholics… Could we get people into Heaven? Yes, for the most part we got that right, but so much else was lost…

Did you know that the Passover Lamb was always tied to the altar at nine AM on the Day of Preparation and that Jesus was nailed to the cross at nine AM on the Day of Preparation? Did you know that the Lamb was slain at three PM and that Jesus died at three PM? You might know that now, but did you ever hear that in Sunday School or church when you were growing up? Everything in Christianity, including future events, is connected to the Feasts of Israel… But we were too westernized to care…

Yes, I still reject the idea that we, as gentile Christians, are obligated to become Jewish or speak God’s Name in Hebrew or abstain from pork… Paul fought those heresies in his day and Paul had been a Pharisee… But understanding our connection to Israel will help you understand what is happening in our world and what is about to happen…

I do not think that you need to run out and buy a prayer shawl, but I do think that you need to move past Rome and back towards Jerusalem. Everything is moving back and the Church is returning to its roots… If you miss that, you will miss everything.

Russia, Turkey, Iran and others are about to be destroyed… decimated in the mountains of Israel. Obadiah tells me that it will be so very thorough that Esau will be left with no descendants… The Arabs are the descendants of Esau. If I know that, I am not going to worry about those nations. Damascus will soon cease to be a city… Why should I worry about Syria? Israel will soon be restored to the full biblical limits of its territory and the AntiMessiah will rule from Jerusalem until the day Jesus returns…

Jesus was Jewish. The AntiMessiah is Jewish. Jesus died, rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven from Jerusalem and it is to Jerusalem He will return, and from Jerusalem that He will rule the Nations. It is from Jerusalem that Lucifer’s Messiah will rule… Everything centers in the Holy City. It is outside the Temple in Jerusalem that the two prophets will stand and prophecy truth during the first part of the Tribulation. It is in Jerusalem that they will die. It is on the streets of Jerusalem that they will lie for three days and it is from those streets that they will rise and ascend to their reward. It is from Israel that God will send 144,000 Evangelists to preach the Word…

It is misunderstanding this that will cause the Dominionists and the Seven Mountaineers to be deceived… This is going to look like victory… Israel wins big, a King rules in Jerusalem and he is enforcing the Noahide Laws on the world… Suddenly, marriage is in, extramarital sex and homosexuality are capital offenses, and liberals and atheists are swinging from gallows on every corner… This is victory and the King in Israel is doing it!!! Praise Yahweh! Meanwhile, they will still be looking for a Hollywood Antichrist and eagerly awaiting a PreTrib Rapture…

Stay clear of the Legalists and those who would have you going to Walmart in a Prayer Shawl… But do learn about your Jewish roots and how they make so very many interpretations of prophecy look so very foolish…

Think about it…

THREE FACES OF BABYLON

BABYLON is always the center of power in the world. Egypt, Greece, Rome, and the British Empire have all been “Babylon” for a while. Sometimes, as it is now, Babylon is split into factors. Today, Babylon is an unholy trinity and it rules the world…


The first face of Babylon is Washington DC. This is the center of government and military power in the world. Founded by Rome, using Masons and Jesuits, the connection between the religion of Rome and the government of the USA has never been broken. Today, you see the leaders of the largest churches and denominations in America in bed with the Pope of Rome. Through the Federal Reserve, the connection to the City of London can never be broken.


The Vatican is the second face of Babylon. Both Roman Catholicism and it’s bastard child, Islam can be traced to Rome. Through the Jesuits and their protestant arm, the Masons, this city controls most of the world. Pope Francis is working valiantly to pull Muslims and Protestants back into the fold. In a clandestine but not so hidden manner, they exert great influence over the government of the USA and all the governments of the world. The Vatican, with its vast wealth, exerts pressure on and often controls the banking center in the City of London.


The third face of Babylon is the City of London. It is from here that the banking industry is controlled. What happens in London can bring any country in the world to its knees. If London willed and Rome agreed, the United States could be toppled in a fortnight. Only Iran and North Korea have escaped the power of London, being the only two countries in the world whose central banks are not owned and controlled by the City of London… It is from here that the Rothschilds rule…


When the Bible speaks to the fall of Babylon, it speaks of these three cities. When these fall, the nations that house them and the entirety of Western Civilization will fall and the AntiMessiah will rule the world from Jerusalem.

A More Inconvenient Truth

Say what you want but Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are Luciferian, not Christian; Masonic, not Biblical.

DID YOU KNOW? THE MORE INCONVENIENT TRUTH

The Constitution and our system of government is based on Plato’s Republic, the Greek philosophers and a novel by Sir Francis Bacon called The New Atlantis.

Our Founding Fathers were, at best, Deists… most of them were deeply involved in Secret Societies, here and abroad. All of our Presidents, save one, have been related to the British Monarchy and each other. Bill and Hillary were cousins before they became husband and wife. Obama, Hillary, Bill and the Bush family are all related and their families intermarried. Every one of them are related to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln… It has been an occultic sham from the beginning.

The vast and overwhelming majority of Americans were Christian. The Church and the Spirit of God kept an evil government in check and brought blessing. The church is now weak, apostate and almost dead; the evil that has always been there is now victorious…

Say what you want but Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are Luciferian, not Christian; Masonic, not Biblical.

Jesus said to die to yourself, take up your cross (think hangman’s noose or gas chamber) and follow him… The Masonic influence in the church was massive and overwhelming and they convinced us that there was no contradiction between Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and dying to yourself, taking up your cross and following Jesus. Somehow, they convinced us that the reward for walking down an aisle, shaking the preacher’s hand and repeating a little prayer was Heaven when you die and a house, car and a big TV here…

No, Jesus said to die to yourself… the rest of that stuff comes from Plato’s Republic and the Masonic-Luciferian religion…

The United States was the guinea pig for the New World Order… Undoing Babel, uniting people from different races, nations, cultures and languages into one new race, nation, culture and language, apart from God… In Genesis 11:6, The Lord said, “If they have begun to do this as one people all having the same language, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” That is Lucifer’s goal and that is the reason the United States was founded.

Now, they will kill the United States, fully convinced that the New World Order / Kingdom of the Beast will rise, like a phoenix, out of the ashes…

That is the truth, and it should make you cry…

Roast Pig

Paul makes it very clear that those who will not eat certain things are “weak” and those who eat, have faith…

Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs. (Genesis 9:3)

There were no dietary laws before the Law was given to Moses. God gave Noah and all of God’s people the right to eat anything that moved and lived…

Then came Moses and the Law. For the first time in history, there were dietary laws and a formal permission to eat certain animals with a prohibition against eating others. These laws applied to the Jews and to gentiles who were physically present in Israel. They never applied to any other peoples.

The Lord spoke again to Moses and to Aaron, saying to them, 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘These are the creatures which you may eat from all the animals that are on the earth. 3 Whatever divides a hoof, thus making split hoofs, and chews the cud, among the animals, that you may eat. 4 Nevertheless, you are not to eat of these… (Leviticus 11:1-4)

Then Jesus came and freed Jewish Christians from the law. The Gentile Christians had never been under the Law but they were often pressured by the early Hebrew Roots Cultists to place themselves under the Law…

Nonetheless, Paul fought against the cultists and insisted that you had a choice, you could place yourself under the Law and be damned by the Law, or you could remain under grace and be led by the Spirit. It is very clear that if you are under the law, you cannot be led by the Spirit, and if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law… It is one or the other, there is no mix and match. You follow the Spirit in real time or you follow words on a rock… Your choice.

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. (Galatians 5:18)

Paul makes it very clear that those who will not eat certain things are “weak” and those who eat, have faith…

Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. 2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. (Romans 14:1,2) [Emphasis mine]

However, he gives a strong word of warning to the weaker brethren…

But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)

So the word is this, If you are led by the Spirit, if you are under the New Covenant, and if you are strong in the faith, you may eat anything.

On the other hand, If you are under the Law, if you are not led by the Spirit, if you have been severed from Christ and have fallen from grace, and if your faith is weak… Follow the Torah, understanding that the slightest infraction of the Law will damn your soul to a Devil’s Hell.

You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. (Galatians 5:4)

Who Are the Bene Elohim?

Some would still prefer to believe a forced humanistic, but not so rational fairy tale than to accept the Bible as the Word of God…

I had an evidently well trained Rational Theologian arguing the Sethite theory of Genesis 6 and insisting that the Nephilim in the Bible were produced when the good men of Seth forced themselves on the wicked women of Cain and that their offspring was simply more evil than others and fear of them caused the people to exaggerate…

Numbers 13:33 “There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

According to him, the giants in Numbers 13:33 were just evil men and the Bible was in error and the spies were exaggerating out of fear. The Bible also lied and exaggerated the size of Og’s bed and the stature of Goliath…

I Pity the Rational Christian who has been taught to explain away the supernatural and force illogical and humanistic interpretations on Scripture.

So the “Good” sons of Seth slept with the “Evil” women of Cain and that union produced people so evil that the fear motivated people exaggerated and called them giants?

Really?

The only reason you would insist on that idea is that you refuse to accept the supernatural.

Job 1: 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. 7 The Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

The Sons of God in Genesis 6 are the same Sons of God found in Job…

To believe that fallen angelic beings mated with human women and produced a race of giants and superheroes makes sense… but you have good human men forcing themselves on evil human women and producing the Nephilim who were so evil that the writers of Scripture exaggerated and called them giants.

First of all, if they were good, why did they take evil wives? Secondly, What would make the progeny of Seth and Cain more evil than either of the purebred races? That makes no sense at all and only a person well-schooled in rational theology could even imagine such a fairy tale…

Yet some would still prefer to believe a forced humanistic, but not so rational fairy tale than to accept the Bible as the Word of God…
