THE SINLESS PERFECTION HERESY

Let us not continue to live a sinful lifestyle but let us not sin by pretending to be perfect.

I just ran into a couple of people, on Facebook, who are preaching the doctrine of Sinless Perfection and trying to tell people that they, themselves have attained to that state and no longer sin.

1 John 1: 10 If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

If you view sinless perfection as a real and reachable goal, you will chase after it for the rest of your life and never attain to that goal. This will leave you frustrated and feeling condemned. This can lead to suicide or worse.

If you lie about it and pretend to others that you have attained to sinless perfection, God is not amused and Scripture says that you are calling God a liar. That is not a place that I would like to find myself, and I would strongly suggest that you do not go there.

Those who preach sinless perfection, pull a number of verses out of context and try to convince you that both Paul and Jesus have commanded you to be sinless. You can find verses that appear to say so. For instance:

Matthew 5:48 “Be Ye Perfect as your Father in Heaven is Perfect.”

However, as in every verse they pull out, they make gross errors in understanding the meaning of the text. In Greek, the word translated “perfect” is teleios. (a) complete in all its parts, (b) full grown, of full age, (c) specially of the completeness of Christian character.

Teleious is an adjective meaning, “consummated goal” – mature (consummated) from going through the necessary stages to reach the end-goal, i.e. developed into a consummating completion by fulfilling the necessary process (spiritual journey).

[This root (tel-) means “reaching the end (aim).” It is well-illustrated with the old pirate’s telescope, unfolding (extending out) one stage at a time to function at full-strength (capacity effectiveness).] It means “reaching the end (aim).”

There is nothing in the definitions of the word “teleios,” that could ever be construed to mean “sinless.”

Jesus told the woman caught in adultery to “Go and sin no more.” The sinless perfection doctrine would understand him to mean, “Go and be sinless.” That was not Jesus’ intention. Jesus was more than aware that she, an unsaved Jew, still under the Law, could not stop sinning altogether. What he was saying was that she should get out of that relationship and not live an adulterous lifestyle. She could not be sinless, but she very well could stop sleeping around with other women’s husbands.

Paul speaks of being “Dead to the Law.” In this sense, we are perfect. Dead men do not break the Law. It is true that when we are Born Again, our sins are washed away. God sees us through the Blood of Jesus and He sees us as the perfection or righteousness of God. We are sinless if we are in Christ. However, we live in a sinful, fallen body and in a sinful, fallen world. We are still subject to temptation and we still sin. This sin, messes with our relationship with Christ. We must repent. When we do, He forgives us and makes us right again.

Those who preach sinless perfection are divided into three groups:

  1. Those who believe in it but admit they have not yet attained to it.
  2. Those who lie about it (and call God a liar).
  3. Those who turn to Gnosticism for an answer.

Looking at them:

  1. The first group is frustrated, condemned and suicidal.
  2. The second group is going to Hell in a handbasket.
  3. The third group is, of all people, most to be pitied.

I will leave the first two groups lie. Let’s talk about the third group. This group will tell you not only that they believe in sinless perfection but that they are indeed, sinless. When you examine their lives, you find drunks, drug addicts, wife beaters and sodomites, all of whom are telling you that they are “sinless.”

“How can that be?” you ask. Good question.

Gnosticism is a deep subject and far too deep to cover here. Let us limit our conversation to the issue of how a rank, habitual, unrepentant sinner uses Gnosticism to proclaim himself “sinless.” Gnosticism predates Christianity but it infected Christianity from day one. Paul fought the Gnostics, day and night. The one Gnostic belief that applies here is this:

The Body and the Soul may be separated, one from the other. It is possible for a sinless soul to dwell in a sinful body.

In other words, through prayer and meditation I can develop a soul that is perfect before God. My body is getting drunk, whoring around, cheating on my wife and robbing my neighbor but my soul is sinless. My Body will die and go to the grave because it is evil. My soul will go to God because it is perfect.

There is a sense in which this is true. As a Christian, my body will die or, if Jesus comes first, it will be changed. My soul has been washed in the Blood and made perfect. Based, not on my own works but on the Grace of God, my soul will go to be with God. Later, my body will be resurrected, changed and reunited with my soul.

However, my soul and my body cannot be separated while I live. When my body sins, my soul sins. When my soul sins, my body follows. My soul is not, in fact, sinless in practice. If my body commits adultery, it is usually following my soul, where the act first took place. This calls for repentance.

I cannot live in sin and claim that I am sinless because only my body is sinning. This is foolishness of the first order.

Interestingly, the Bible speaks of three salvations:

  1. We have been saved.
  2. We are being saved.
  3. We shall be saved.

We were saved the day that we accepted Christ. By the Grace of God, we left the road to Hell and got on the path to Heaven.

We are now being saved. Salvation is a process. Being freed from sin and changed into the likeness of Christ is a lifelong process. We are born again as spiritual babies. After years of Prayer, Bible reading, Christian fellowship and discipleship, we find that we have grown and matured a lot. However, the closer we get to God, the brighter the light. The brighter the light, the easier it is to see our own sin and failings. Baby Christians compare themselves to other Christians and feel pretty good. Mature Christians compare themselves to Jesus Christ and see themselves as wretched sinners. This is why Paul wrote, at the very end of his ministry, that he was the “Chief of Sinners.” Paul was not comparing himself to other Christians but to Christ. In that light, the great Apostle could only see himself as a sinner, having never attained to the likeness of Christ.

On the day that we die, or on the day Christ returns, whichever comes first, we will be saved. We will, at long last, be freed from all sin and all temptation and we will in fact and practice, have become the righteousness of God.

John’s short thesis is an amazing piece of Scripture; he covers two heresies in one paragraph.

1 John 1:5 Now this is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in Him. 6 If we say, “We have fellowship with Him,” yet we walk in darkness, we are lying and are not practicing the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

A FAITH THAT DOES NOT CHANGE YOU, HAS NOT SAVED YOU!

Those who claim that Grace has given them a license to sin, are not saved. Period. When you are Born Again, you do not become perfect, but you do change directions. If you are a drunk, you may not stop drinking but you agree with God that drunkenness is a sin and you start the fight to free yourself from alcohol. You may still fall to temptation and get drunk when a friend stops by with a bottle, but you no longer hang out in bars five nights a week. If you fall and get drunk, you feel conviction, you know it was wrong, you ask God to forgive you and help you beat the temptation to get drunk. If you say you are saved but still get drunk five nights a week and you feel no remorse, no sorrow, no conviction and you go on your way, insisting that the Blood of Jesus has cleansed you from all sin, you are a liar, and the truth is not in you.

NEVER CALL GOD A LAR!

On the other hand, sin is a strange thing. There are things that I did without a thought when I was a baby Christian… things that I cannot do anymore. It is a strange thing, as a Christian, to wake up one day, under conviction that something you have done freely, as a Christian, for twenty years, is a sin. Sometimes, just when you are starting to feel really holy and righteous, God suddenly convicts you that something you thought was okay, is not okay with him. He let you do it while He was working on your grosser sins. Now that they are conquered, there are, you discover, some finer points that God wants to work on. Just when you think that you are about perfect, God stands you up next to Jesus and starts comparing the two of you. That is a very uncomfortable process.

Years ago, in an old fashioned, country Church of God, I ran into two very self-righteous old biddies who claimed to have attained to sinless perfection… They were “Totally Sanctified.” They wore clothes from head to toe. Only a little of their face showed. Even their hands were hidden in gloves. Their hair, never cut but very gray, was neatly stacked in a “Pentecostal Bun” and hidden under a scarf prayed for by Oral Roberts and never washed. Not a hint of makeup or jewelry could be seen and no perfume hid their body odor. The Black, King James Bibles they carried, seemed to weigh them down. They were, however, the meanest backbiters and the most terrible gossips I have ever met in my life. They would stand and pray things like, “Lord, please help Brother Smith who I saw coming out of a motel with a woman, last Thursday Afternoon…” Mean women… really mean, but “perfect,” as they would happily brag.

Let us not continue to live a sinful lifestyle but let us not sin by pretending to be perfect.

THE NEW WORLD ORDER AS A “GOD THING”!

Please understand that “Christians”, with the best of motives, will lose their eternal souls by swearing allegiance to “God’s Man of The Hour,” “The Only Hope For the World.”

One might ask, “Why is it important to understand that the Christian Foundation of the United States is a myth and a deception?”

Revelation 12:9 So the great dragon was thrown out–the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him.

There is coming, according to Scripture, the greatest deception the world has ever seen. That deception will be based on the same lie that was sold to American Christians. The call of the New World Order will be to make, of the entire world, that which was once limited to the American Continent. The New World Order will be offered as the only solution to a dying world. As the United States was once United under God, so now, the world must be united under God.

The New World Order will be offered as God’s answer to the world’s problems. Religion, a bastardized version of Christianity, broad enough to include Jews and Muslims, will be at the very center of the offer. God will be referenced everywhere and in everything. The New World Order will be a Democracy, with an elected leadership. That leadership will give strong lip service to “God.” The promise will be that God is now going to do, on a world-wide basis, what He once did in America. We will unite the world with one religion, one government, one currency, one bank, universal health coverage, and one new language. We will do away, finally, once and for all, with war, pestilence, hunger and disease. The New World Order will be the United States of the World.

We Will Undo Babel and Unite Mankind Again!

This will be offered to a war weary world, at the end of a short, violent, nuclear war. The Third World War will probably last less than a year, probably something like seven months but it will kill two billion people and leave much of the world a nuclear wasteland. Christians, Muslims, Jews and pagans worldwide will join together in a common deception. That deception will be much stronger in the aftermath of a great war. That deception will have all the supernatural power of Hell behind it, and it will be offered by Jewish Rabbis, Muslim Clerics and Christian Pastors, in the Name of God Almighty.

Who will be the most open to this deception? Christians who still believe that the United States is a miracle of God, worked out on the American Continent by the Holy Spirit, in the Name of Jesus. Those who believe that George Washington and the others were true men of God, will see the Antichrist as a type of George Washington, a hero, sent from God to save the world.

Those who understand that the United States was founded as a precursor to the New World Order and that it was the first attempt to undo Babel and restore a unified world which, under Lucifer, could defeat Jehovah God and establish the Devil as the eternal god of this world, will never be deceived. That is why it is important that you tear down the matrix and stare the ugly truth in the face.

The New World Order will be offered as God’s answer to the world’s problems. It will be moral and upright, it will stand against all kinds of open perversion, it will stand for a moral code that will mimic the Ten Commandments, it will be for the freeing of sex slaves, against child sex, and against pornography. All in the Name of God. Those who understand the truth now, will see through the deception. Others will not have a chance.

If you don’t believe me, pull out a Dollar Bill. It says “IN GOD WE TRUST” Look a little to the left and you will see the pyramid and the “All Seeing Eye” of Osiris, the god of whom it speaks. The American Church was deceived because they wanted to be deceived. They wanted to believe that the God on the Dollar Bill was the God that they served and so, that is what they believed. Ignorance on Steroids!

Look at Washington D.C. First called Rome, the city is laid out in demonic symmetry. Greek Temples are everywhere. Gargoyles overlook every street from the roofs of buildings built to holy Egyptian standards. George Washington is depicted as a god, ascended to and ruling from Heaven. An Egyptian obelisk stands as a memorial to his name, a giant penis, the penis of the god, Osiris, 666” on each side and 6,660” tall, it overlooks a reflection pool that represents the birth canal of Isis. It casts its shadow on the Capital Dome, a dome which represents the womb of Isis. Those who built it were convinced that it was magic and that it would, one day, bring about the reincarnation of Nimrod, and that he would, in that place, become incarnate in the body of the Antichrist.

Yes, if you survive the Third World War, you will be asked to swear allegiance to a “Christian” New World Order and God’s man of the hour, a Pagan Prince, sent by “God” to save the world from itself. The Leader will be hailed by Pastors and Seven Mountain Prophets as “God’s Man of the Hour” and the “World’s Only Hope.” He will present himself as the Savior of Israel and the Champion of all that is right and godly.

But he will not be from the God of Heaven.

The world will embrace him and the Church will love him. If you find that hard to believe, look at the Seven Mountain Prophets and the Evangelical Leaders who embraced Donald Trump as “Cyrus, sent from God to save America.” The One World Leader will receive more support from the “Church” than Donald Trump could have dreamed of.

Please understand that “Christians”, with the best of motives, will lose their eternal souls by swearing allegiance to “God’s Man of The Hour,” “The Only Hope For the World.” They will do so, encouraged by Prophets, Pastors, Priests, Deacons and Elders in their churches, on YouTube and Facebook.

I do not want you to be among the deceived but if you will not accept the truth now, you will not accept the truth then and it will cost you Heaven and land you in the Lake of Fire.

WORLD WAR THREE AND THE DEATH OF AMERICA.

“Our destruction is at hand. Everything you know and love is about to disappear. When this conflict is over, if you live, you will find yourself with no electricity or transportation or light. The greatest chance is that your house will be gone, you will be homeless and a wanderer…”

Had the United States elected Hillary Clinton, the United States might simply have rotted away quietly. Having elected Donald Trump, we are closer to World War Three than we have ever been. The world is exploding on every front. Russia and North Korea are ready to nuke us. Trump tried to build up China and encourage them to oppose Kim Jong-un, the Madman of the Korean Peninsula. China accepted the favor received but has done little to discourage the dictator or inhibit his schemes. Damascus, as prophesied, is about to disappear and hundreds of thousands of Syrians are dying in a war between Russia and the United States which is sparing American and Russian soldiers at the expense of Syrian men, women and children, who are routinely forced to die in their stead.

Of course, American politics are nothing more than smoke and mirrors; a puppet show to entertain the masses. We could not have elected Hillary; the election was decided behind closed doors, months, if not years before that day in November. The problem is not that “Christians” helped to elect Trump, they had no say in the matter. The real problem is that they thought that they did and they acted in harmony with the deception the Elite set out to deceive them with. So deep was the deception, that they not only believed every lie aimed at them, but were desperate to convince others to believe them. As those lies are revealed and every promise is broken, some have awakened from their slumber but most cling desperately and will not let go of their dream when the very last promise is broken.

The sins of America have risen to the Heavens and judgment is proclaimed. Our doom fills the pages of Scripture. The prophets described the United States perfectly but called her Babylon. That is enough to encourage Evangelical Ostriches to keep their heads in the sand. Every sin of America is covered and hidden by Christians who believe that evil must be good if America does it.

Biblical prophecy tells us that World War Three will start in the Middle East in a conflict involving Israel and the surrounding nations. If, for reasons of lack of intelligence, you choose not to believe Scripture, this letter written to Mazzini by Albert Pike in 1871 will inform you that this has long been the plan of the Illuminated Luciferians… They have never changed their plan.

“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the ‘agentur’, of the ‘Illuminati’ between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

One of the Last things to happen before the end is the total destruction of Damascus. Have you seen the headlines recently?  Damascus is on its last legs now and the headlines speak to Donald Trump wanting to “destroy Damascus.”

A Generation is 70 years. Jesus indicated that the generation that saw Israel born would not pass away before the end. That would not be significant, were we not on the brink of WW3. This war will claim the lives of one out of every three people living on earth, more than two billion (with a “B” billion) people. This will lead the world to accept the New World Order… Don’t look at one thing or the other; they must be viewed as a whole. Seventy years, Jesus claim, and the News on your TV… It forms one truth, one picture.

To be so desperate to save the United States that one will believe every lie sent in their direction and not only believe the lies, but invent and believe a story that God so loves the United States that He has sent a Pagan Prince to save us, in our sin, apart from repentance, and enable us to continue in our sin, is a tragic comedy. If it were not so sad, it would have me rolling with laughter.

Genesis 11: The Tower of Babylon

At one time the whole earth had the same language and vocabulary. 2 As people migrated from the east, they found a valley in the land of Shinar and settled there. 3 They said to each other, “Come, let us make oven-fired bricks.” They used brick for stone and asphalt for mortar. 4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky. Let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise, we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

5 Then the Lord came down to look over the city and the tower that the men were building. 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. 7 Come, let Us go down there and confuse their language so that they will not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So from there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 Therefore its name is called Babylon, for there the Lord confused the language of the whole earth, and from there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

Babylon:

  1. Same Language
  2. Same Vocabulary
  3. United
  4. Tower building

God testified of them, ““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.”

GOD:

  1. Confused the language
  2. Scattered the people
  3. Divided the nations; Tribes, tongues and nation (ethnos)

Founding Fathers:

  1. Gave us one language
  2. United us with a common culture
  3. Brought together people from many nations, tribes and tongues

The Founding Fathers were Deists, not Christians. Of the seven men commonly agreed on as the leading founders of this nation, only one, John Jay, believed in the divinity of Jesus Christ. They were Masons and members of secret societies. They were captivated by a novel written by Sir Francis Bacon called the New Atlantis… Everything that they did was based on Babylonian religion and magic.

ORDO AB CHAO:

  1. Order out of Chaos
  2. Masonic Motto
  3. The Chaos of which they speak is the Chaos that resulted from the confusion of languages at Babel.

Satan’s goal is to undo Babel and unite the world under a single government with a single religion, language, single currency and a single culture. He is intent on resurrecting Nimrod to run the world for him. This is the New World Order and the Antichrist.

The United States was the Satanic prototype of the New World Order. The New Babylon… the one that will cover the whole earth, cannot rise until the current Babylon collapses and dies. At the same time they are working at Globalism, they are working to splinter and divide groups within the United States.

Our sin has lifted up a stench to Heaven. The blood of more than sixty million babies cries out against us. The souls of the damned from Sodom and Gomorrah cry out against us. The Judgment of God is coming. At one and the same time, Lucifer is against us because we stand in the way of his global agenda. God has now stepped back, the hedge of protection is gone and Satan will soon have his way. The end is not near; the end is here.

GET OUT OF BABYLON:

  1. Rip the flag off of the cross
  2. Do not participate in Babylon
  3. You are a stranger and a pilgrim in a foreign land
  4. Take up your cross and follow Jesus
  5. The only safe place to be is where God wants you
  6. The only safe thing to do is what God tells you to do

Our destruction is at hand. Everything you know and love is about to disappear. When this conflict is over, if you live, you will find yourself with no electricity or transportation or light. The greatest chance is that your house will be gone, you will be homeless and a wanderer, going as far as your feet will take you. There will be no food, everything you touch will be radioactive. People around you will be dying by the thousands, with no one to bury them, their corpses will rot in the sun, everything will be septic and the smell overwhelming…

That, whether you like it or not, is the future of America.

It will be bad for those who are the saved of God, the Elect. How much worse for the one who thought himself a Christian but placed his hope and trust in the United States and a man named Trump?

Get right with God or go to Hell.

ON NEPHILIM, GIBBORUM AND DEMONS

No Jew, in the first century, would have doubted that the “Sons of God” in Genesis 6, were angelic, supernatural beings…

Genesis 6:1 (HCSB) When mankind began to multiply on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of mankind were beautiful, and they took any they chose as wives for themselves. 3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit will not remain with mankind forever, because they are corrupt. Their days will be 120 years.” 4 The Nephilim were on the earth both in those days and afterward, when the sons of God came to the daughters of mankind, who bore children to them. They were the powerful men of old, the famous men.

Enoch 6:1 (Charles) And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. 2. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.’ 3. And Semjâzâ, who was their leader, said unto them: ‘I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.’ 4. And they all answered him and said: ‘Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.’ 5. Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. 6. And they were in all two hundred; who descended ⌈in the days⌉ of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. 

The Book of Enoch or First Enoch, if you prefer, belongs to the Second Temple Period in Israel. (516 BC – 70 AD) No one knows who wrote it, but Scripture quotes it, and in that context, calls Enoch a Prophet. It is imagined that at least the first part of the book was based on lost manuscripts and oral traditions that predate the flood. We know, and can demonstrate, that the Jews of the Second Temple Period, including the writers of the New Testament, were knowledgeable of and greatly influenced by the book.

The writers of the New Testament held a supernatural world view. Their understanding of Angels and demons was very much in line with the Book of Enoch. They understood that while the fallen angels were locked up until the judgment day, demons were, in fact, the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim and the Gibborum.  This was the generally held view of the Jews alive at the time of Jesus. The Angels, mentioned in Enoch, had produced offspring with human women. How that is possible is beyond the scope of this blog post but Scripture equates their sin with the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah, obviously labeling it as sexual in nature.

The Nephilim were the children of the Angels and human women. The Gibborum, or giants, were the genetic descendants of the Nephilim, sometimes Gibborum / Gibborum, but often Gibborum / human. They got smaller as the Nephilim blood got weaker and more diluted over the generations. These mixed blood tribes were still in the Promised Land when Joshua took Jericho. It was the Gibborum who so frightened the Hebrew spies that they refused to enter the Land. It was these mixed tribes that God ordered the Jews to decimate, killing every man, woman, boy and girl. God was not cruel; these people were unredeemable and posed a threat to the bloodline of the coming Messiah.

The Jews of the Second Temple Period, understood that the souls of these mixed, human / angel beings, could not die. Enoch informed them that these souls had been condemned to wander the earth until the Judgment. These souls hungered and thirsted, having human appetites but were unable to meet their needs without a body. It was for this reason that they sought to possess human beings. These souls were the demons who so plagued mankind with disease and gross evil.

In the mind of the Second Temple Period Jews, these demons were much more responsible for the evil and fallen condition of man than was even the fall of Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve had lost the dominion over the earth to Satan and brought on a curse. It was the fallen Angels and their progeny who had taught every evil, from seduction to the art of war, to mankind. It was the Nephilim who had made mankind so evil that God had destroyed the earth in the flood and it was the demons, the spirits of the Nephilim and the Gibborum who continued to bring sickness and influence men towards evil.

No Jew, in the first century, would have doubted that the “Sons of God” in Genesis 6, were angelic, supernatural beings. That view held, in the Church, until Augustine. It was Augustine who was the first to question the supernatural aspects of Scripture and it was he, who first introduced the idea that the “Sons of God” in genesis 6 were the very human descendants of Seth, while the “Daughters of men” were the evil daughters of Cain. I will discuss the obvious fallacies in that theory in another post. Let me simply say that the idea that the “Godly” sons of Seth, forcing themselves on the ungodly daughters of Cain, reverses the picture, making rapists out of the Godly men and victims out of the “evil women.” Beyond that, the idea that the union between two very human groups produced giants, is inexplicable. The only reason for believing the so called “Sethite Theory” is a steadfast refusal to believe in the supernatural.

So, Enoch effected the beliefs of the writers of the New Testament. It is quoted by both Peter and Jude and alluded to by others. It explains and opens our understanding of Scripture, both Old and New Testaments. Our Canon was settled on in the West and those who made those decisions had good reasons for doing so. The oldest Scriptural Canon in the World is the Ethiopian Canon. While Enoch is excluded in the canon accepted by Catholics and Protestants in the West, it is included in the older canon. Is it Scripture? Certain Eastern and African churches accept it as Scripture, while we do not. Some things evade dogmatic statements. I will leave that decision to my readers.

This author, believes in the supernatural. I am convinced that there were giants and that while they are no longer giants, a race of people has remained on earth that still has the remnants of angel DNA. These people are the elite and the super wealthy of the world… You can argue with me if you like; I certainly cannot prove that. We can discuss that in a future post.

Three books for those whose interest is peaked. Each of the three books has extensive bibliographies which point to literally hundreds of other books. Several people have earned ThDs and PhDs, studying these things. There is room for a hundred more dissertations on the subject. I encourage study.

  2. Reversing Hermon: Dr. Michael S. Heiser

THE NEW TESTAMENT AND THE LAW

What follows is Scripture. If you are a “Kosher-Kristian”, under the Law of Moses, please do not read these Scriptures. They will ruin your life…

Acts

The law is an unbearable yoke.

Acts 15:10 Now then, why are you testing God by putting a yoke on the disciples’ necks that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear? 11 On the contrary, we believe we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus in the same way they are.”

Romans

The law reveals sin but cannot fix it.

Romans 3:20 For no one will be justified in His sight by the works of the law, because the knowledge of sin comes through the law.

If the law worked then faith would be irrelevant.

Romans 4:14 If those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made empty and the promise is canceled.

The purpose of the law was to increase sin.

Romans 5:20 The law came along to multiply the trespass. But where sin multiplied, grace multiplied even more.

Christians are not under the law.

Romans 6:14 For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under law but under grace.

Christians have been delivered from the law.

Romans 7:1 Since I am speaking to those who understand law, brothers, are you unaware that the law has authority over someone as long as he lives? 2 For example, a married woman is legally bound to her husband while he lives. But if her husband dies, she is released from the law regarding the husband. 3 So then, if she gives herself to another man while her husband is living, she will be called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law. Then, if she gives herself to another man, she is not an adulteress.

4 Therefore, my brothers, you also were put to death in relation to the law through the crucified body of the Messiah, so that you may belong to another—to Him who was raised from the dead—that we may bear fruit for God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions operated through the law in every part of us and bore fruit for death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, since we have died to what held us, so that we may serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old letter of the law.

The law is good, perfect and holy but cannot help you be good, perfect or holy.

Romans 7: 7 What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example, I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, Do not covet. 8 And sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind. For apart from the law sin is dead. 9 Once I was alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life 10 and I died. The commandment that was meant for life resulted in death for me. 11 For sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me, and through it killed me. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good.

The law which promises life only brings death through sin.

Romans 7: 9 Once I was alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life 10 and I died. The commandment that was meant for life resulted in death for me. 11 For sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me, and through it killed me. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good.

The law makes you sinful beyond measure.

Romans 7:13 13 Therefore, did what is good cause my death? Absolutely not! On the contrary, sin, in order to be recognized as sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that through the commandment, sin might become sinful beyond measure.

The law is weak.

Romans 8:1 Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus, 2 because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3 What the law could not do since it was limited by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours under sin’s domain, and as a sin offering, 4 in order that the law’s requirement would be accomplished in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

1 Corinthians

 The strength of sin is the law

1 Corinthians 15:56 Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

2 Corinthians

 The law is a ministry of death.

2 Corinthians 3:7 Now if the ministry of death, chiseled in letters on stones, came with glory, so that the Israelites were not able to look directly at Moses’ face because of the glory from his face–a fading glory—

The law is a ministry of condemnation.

2 Corinthians 3:9 For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness overflows with even more glory.

The law has no glory at all in comparison with the New Covenant.

2 Corinthians 3:10 In fact, what had been glorious is not glorious now by comparison because of the glory that surpasses it.

The law is fading away.

2 Corinthians 3:11 For if what was fading away was glorious, what endures will be even more glorious.

Anywhere the law is preached it produces a mind-hardening and a heart-hardening veil.

2 Corinthians 3:14 but their minds were closed. For to this day, at the reading of the old covenant, the same veil remains; it is not lifted, because it is set aside only in Christ. 15 Even to this day, whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their hearts,

Galatians

 The law justifies nobody.

Galatians 2:15 15 We who are Jews by birth and not “Gentile sinners” 16 know that no one is justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ.

Christians are dead to the law.

Galatians 2:19 For through the law I have died to the law, so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ

The law frustrates grace.

Galatians 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.

To go back to the law after embracing faith is “stupid”.

Galatians 3:1 You foolish Galatians! Who has hypnotized you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was vividly portrayed as crucified? 2 I only want to learn this from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by hearing with faith? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now going to be made complete by the flesh? 4 Did you suffer so much for nothing—if in fact it was for nothing? 5 So then, does God supply you with the Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law or by hearing with faith?

The law curses all who practice it and fail to do it perfectly.

Galatians 3:10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, because it is written: Everyone who does not continue doing everything written in the book of the law is cursed.

The law has nothing to do with faith.

Galatians 3:11 Now it is clear that no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous will live by faith. 12 But the law is not based on faith; instead, the one who does these things will live by them.

The law was a curse that Christ redeemed us from.

Galatians 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, because it is written: Everyone who is hung on a tree is cursed.

The law functioned in God’s purpose as a temporary covenant from Moses till John the Baptist announced Christ.

Galatians 3: 16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say “and to seeds,” as though referring to many, but referring to one, and to your seed, who is Christ. 17 And I say this: The law, which came 430 years later, does not revoke a covenant that was previously ratified by God and cancel the promise. 18 For if the inheritance is from the law, it is no longer from the promise; but God granted it to Abraham through the promise. 19 Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise was made would come. The law was put into effect through angels by means of a mediator.

If the law worked God would have used it to save us.

Galatians 3:21 Is the law therefore contrary to God’s promises? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that was able to give life, then righteousness would certainly be by the law.

The law was our prison.

Galatians 3:23 Before this faith came, we were confined under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith was revealed.

The law makes you a slave like Hagar.

Galatians 4:21 Tell me, those of you who want to be under the law, don’t you hear the law? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave and the other by a free woman. 23 But the one by the slave was born according to the impulse of the flesh, while the one by the free woman was born as the result of a promise. 24 These things are illustrations, for the women represent the two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai and bears children into slavery—this is Hagar.

Ephesians

 Christ has abolished the law which was a wall of hostility

Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah. 14 For He is our peace, who made both groups one and tore down the dividing wall of hostility. In His flesh, 15 He made of no effect the law consisting of commands and expressed in regulations, so that He might create in Himself one new man from the two, resulting in peace. 16 He did this so that He might reconcile both to God in one body through the cross and put the hostility to death by it.

Philippians

 Paul considered everything the law gained him as “skybalon” which is Greek for “poop”.

Philippians 3:4 although I once also had confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he has grounds for confidence in the flesh, I have more: 5 circumcised the eighth day; of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews; regarding the law, a Pharisee; 6 regarding zeal, persecuting the church; regarding the righteousness that is in the law, blameless.

7 But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss (skybalon) because of Christ.

1 Timothy

 The law is only good if used in the right context.

1 Timothy 1:8 But we know that the law is good, provided one uses it legitimately. 9 We know that the law is not meant for a righteous person, but for the lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinful, for the unholy and irreverent, for those who kill their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral and homosexuals, for kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and for whatever else is contrary to the sound teaching…

Hebrews

 The law is weak, useless and makes nothing perfect.

Hebrews 7:18 So the previous command is annulled because it was weak and unprofitable 19 (for the law perfected nothing), but a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.

God has found fault with it and created a better covenant, enacted on better promises.

Hebrews 8: 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion for a second one.

It is obsolete, growing old and ready to vanish.

Hebrews 8:13 By saying, a new covenant, He has declared that the first is old. And what is old and aging is about to disappear.

It is only a shadow of good things to come and will never make someone perfect.

Hebrews 10:1 Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come, and not the actual form of those realities, it can never perfect the worshipers by the same sacrifices they continually offer year after year.

SPEAKING TRUTH IN LOVE

The fact that the truth offends, is no excuse for me to be offensive…

Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head—Christ.

My wife is the most loving, kind and considerate Christian I know. Jesus loved Cathy enough to save her and He loves you enough to save you. Cathy will love you into the Kingdom. Everybody loves Cathy.

We are opposites. I am mean, ugly, hardheaded and doctrinally correct. I will speak the truth as I find it in Scripture and as the Spirit convicts, but nobody feels the love.

It isn’t that I don’t love people. I love them enough to point out the truth, even when I know that the truth will greatly offend them and that they will reject that truth. I want to just be loving. I want everybody to love me. I want people around me to feel the love of Jesus, like it was just oozing out of my bones. You do not know how desperately I desire that, but these are desperate times and the truth keeps getting in the way.

The truth, however ugly and counter-culture it may be, can be spoken in love. I know that because the Bible tells me to do so. God would not tell me to speak the truth in love, if it were not possible to do so. God just wouldn’t do that.

I need to practice being kind and loving. I can take a hint from Jesus… “Go and sin no more… you brood of vipers!” How do I ever find that balance?

1 Timothy 5:20 Those who continue in sin, rebuke in the presence of all, so that the rest also will be fearful of sinning. (Speaking the truth in love.)

Luke 17:3a Be on your guard! If your brother sins, rebuke him… (Speaking the truth in love.)

Titus 1:13 This testimony is true. For this reason, reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith… (Speaking the truth in love.)

Titus 2:15 These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you. (Speaking the truth in love.)

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. (Speaking the truth in love.)

“Speaking the truth in love.” Let us look at that passage in context:

Now grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the Messiah’s gift. For it says:

When He ascended on high,
He took prisoners into captivity;
He gave gifts to people.

But what does “He ascended” mean except that He descended to the lower parts of the earth? 10 The One who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill[ all things.11 And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, 12 for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God’s Son, growing into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ’s fullness. 14 Then we will no longer be little children, tossed by the waves and blown around by every wind of teaching, by human cunning with cleverness in the techniques of deceit. 15 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head—Christ. 16 From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.

We are to grow up. This is about growing up and maturing to the point that we are no longer blown about by “every wind of doctrine.” We are to grow into unity but that unity can only be found in Christ and the truth of Scripture. Seeking unity through compromise will never work. Speaking lies, because they are more “loving” than the truth, will never work.

The truth is, that the truth is ugly and offensive to those who reject it. There is a deep and inherent offense in the message of the Cross. Those who have been trained in lies, disguised as truth, revolt at the real truth, rejecting it off hand. I did! When God started showing me how things that I had learned in church, things taught to me as “Gospel Truth,” violated his Word, I rebelled. “Not my Pastor! Not my church! They would never teach me anything wrong!” I cried, I screamed at God, I told people that they were crazy! So why am I surprised that others have the same reaction? Sometimes you just have to get angry and fight through things.

However, the fact that the truth offends, is no excuse for me to be offensive. Error must be confronted but it is easier to accept the truth from those who smile and take your interest and needs to heart. I must learn to take on other people’s burdens. I must seek to understand where they are and where they come from. I must identify with them as brothers and sisters in the Lord. I must meet their needs. Only then, will I have the right to speak truth into their lives.

Please pray for me, that in however it may be possible, I will learn to speak the truth in love. I am not even certain what that means but I am aware that I need to learn.

THE AMAZING GULLIBILITY OF THE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN

It is true that, in 1776, the majority of Americans were believing Christians. It is for that reason that early documents, such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, present demonic ideas and ideals in Christian language and in a manner intentionally designed to deceive Believers.

It is a lie to state that our Government, designed by Jesuits, Masons and Deists, was ever Christian. Satan is the god of this world and for better or worse, all governments are under his control. The Devil offered Jesus Christ, “all the kingdoms of this world.” He had the right and the ability to do that because they are all part of the Kingdom of Darkness; they are the Kingdoms of this World. The United States of America is no exception.

Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15)

The Kingdom of this World will become the Kingdom of our God, but not until the Angel blows the seventh and final trumpet. Meanwhile, no matter how badly Babylonian Christians want to believe otherwise, the United States of America remains the most powerful nation in the Kingdom of Darkness and Donald Trump, no matter how many of his lies you insist on believing, is the leader of that nation.

Those who would insist that Donald Trump is better than Hillary Clinton or any other American Leader, are deceived. Joseph Stalin killed more people than Adolph Hitler. We could argue that Hitler was the better leader. Hitler killed more Jews than Stalin. We could argue that Stalin was the better man. Donald Trump is the King of Babylon. Donald Trump is the most powerful leader in the Kingdom of Darkness.

The Kingdom of Darkness is at war with the Kingdom of Heaven. Donald Trump is leading the war against God and against Jesus Christ. Meanwhile, half of all American Christians are so deceived as to believe that he is a Prince of God, sent to save them. This, they must believe, because they are, first and foremost, Americans. All of their life, their security, their happiness, their hope and their future is tied up in the United States. If America should fall, everything they hold as precious and necessary to life would fail. God cannot allow that to happen. If America dies, God dies with her.

Wishful thinking replaces Scripture and crowds out common sense.

We have invaded the Middle East, killing millions of people and destabilizing nations, because we are the Good Guys. Really? Their leaders were mean. We did the right thing by killing them and causing the death of hundreds of thousands of their citizens, because we are “Good” and they were “evil”. Really? We were trying to fight Al-Qaeda. We trained and armed Al-Qaeda. We are after ISIS. We trained and armed ISIS. This is retribution for 9/11. Anyone willing to look beyond their prejudice knows that 9/11 was a false flag. We are the good guys. Really?

Compare that to the atrocity that is the Congo. Only World War Two has claimed more lives than the war in the Congo. Rebel Leaders in the Congo have killed more people than Hitler and Stalin combined. So far, the United States of America has invested less than $10,000 in the effort to bring peace to the Congo. We are the good guys?

  • There is Petroleum in the Middle East.
  • Damascus sits on top of the largest petroleum field ever discovered.
  • North Korea threatens those who produce the goods we consume and threatens to nuke our military bases.
  • The Congo has no natural resources and poses no threat to our economy or our lives.

We have invaded nations that have done us no harm and killed millions of people in the pursuit of oil. In spite of that, Babylonian Christians will continue to insist that we are God’s Country and Trump is God’s man, sent to save us so that we can sin another day.

Did God allow Trump to be placed in power? Yes. The same God who allowed Israel to install Saul as their first King, allowed Manasseh to ascend to the throne as their last King. The Same God who called Abraham, allowed Israel to be carried off into captivity.

You folks have a choice. You can open your eyes and see the truth or you can bury your head in the sand. You can accept the truth or you can insist on wishful thinking; finding refuge in ignorance… Your choice…

The Kingdom of Darkness or the Kingdom of Light… Are you American or Christian? Where is your heart?

Will your God die with America?
