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)

Think about it…

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…

Security of the Believer

There are verses that speak to the security of the believer. There are also verses that speak of losing your Salvation.

Calvin would tell me to trash, undercut, explain away or ignore every passage that speaks of losing your salvation.

Arminius would tell me to trash, undercut, explain away or ignore every passage that speaks to the security of the believer.

Having seen through the foolishness of both sides, I choose to understand that the believer is neither so secure as Calvin would have me to believe, nor on such shaky ground as Arminius would lead me to believe.

The truth is that Scripture speaks both to the security of the believer and to the very real possibility of losing your Salvation.

The same bible that quotes Jesus as saying, “No one shall pluck them out of my hand.” Says “You have been severed from Christ… you have fallen from grace.”

The same Bible that says, “you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise”, says “Do not be conceited, but fear; for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either.”

Both Calvin and Arminius chose to trash bible passages that disagreed with their preconceived theses… “This I believe, this I will prove, where is my Bible?”

The Calvinist chooses to accept Calvin as his authority and to force all Scripture to agree with Calvin’s hypothesis. The Armenian accepts Arminius as his authority and forces all Scripture to agree with Arminius’ presuppositions. The Christian says “God speaks both to the security of the believer and the possibility of losing one’s salvation…” “Is there Scripture,” he asks, “that explains how the believer, who cannot be snatched out of Christ’s hand and has been sealed by the Holy Spirit should fear and tremble lest they be severed from Jesus and fall from grace?”

Of course, there is… but both Calvinists and Armenians flatly reject all Scripture that might even possibly resolve the conflict. It seems that their hero and the founder of their sect is far more important than God, Jesus and Scripture combined…

Yet Paul’s insisted that those believers who had come to trust in their own obedience to the Law for justification, had been severed from Christ and had fallen from grace. You cannot fall from where you are not, neither can you be severed from that to which you are not attached. Nor can you pretend that one who has been severed from Christ and has fallen from grace is saved and going to Heaven.

Both Calvin and Arminius seem to have believed that the loss of salvation would be centered on sin. In this, Calvin, who insisted that one was not saved by ceasing to sin and therefore could not be lost by committing sin was correct. Arminius, who seems to have believed that one is lost every time they sin and saved again every time they repent was wrong. I am most certainly a Christian and not a Calvinist, but on this point, Calvin got it right.

Galatians 5:4 addresses a particular group of people, those who “are seeking to be justified by law”. Had they fallen from grace and been severed from Christ because of sin? No. They were now lost, because they no longer believed. The faith God had given them was removed from Christ and placed in their own ability to follow the Law.

We are saved “by grace through faith in the Son of God” We are not lost when we sin and resaved when we repent. That is unscriptural. However, if we withdraw our faith from Jesus and place that faith in anything else. The Law, our own righteousness, not eating pork, going to church on the Sabbath, Calvin, Arminius, the Pope, or Donald Trump… We are lost.

Both the Calvinist and the Arminian reject this Scriptural truth, but Christians see it, accept it and rejoice in it…

Think about it…

BABYLONIAN REGRESSION:

It is in the religion of Babel that the religions of the world will find the unity they so desperately seek. It is in Babylon that they will be united into the religion of the beast…

With the sole exceptions of Biblical Christianity and Torah based Judaism (nonexistent today), all religions can be traced back to Babel. Through Egypt, Greece and Rome, they divided, each following its own demons. They appear very different now, and like their patron gods, the people hate each other, but they share a common root.

What we are seeing today is a regression back to those common roots… It is in the religion of Babel that the religions of the world will find the unity they so desperately seek. It is in Babylon that they will be united into the religion of the beast…

The Word of Faith ministries, infiltrated by Jesuits and Masons from the beginning, has morphed into the New Apostolic Reformation and Dominionism, adopting the Seven Mountains heresy as their core doctrine. We find them deeply into politics, looking to Trump as Messiah and to Pope Francis for unification. They write articles about reaching out to and befriending Muslims, not reaching them for Jesus but making peace with them as they are. One day their leaders are doing a photo op with the Pope and the next a photo op praying for Trump… They are thrilled at the idea that the nation will soon adopt the Noahide Laws…

The Masons come from the Knights Templar… they are a protestant branch of the Jesuits, sharing a common mysticism that goes back through Rome, Greece and Egypt, finding its roots in Babylon.

The Roman Catholic Church baptized Horus as Jesus, Osiris as God the Father, Isis as Mary, and introduced Babylonian mysticism to the Church of Jesus Christ… The Pope is reaching out to Dominionists, Masons, and Muslims alike, calling for unity.

Allah, the Moon God, was worshipped in Babylon and Islam was, according to Catholic and Jesuit sources, birthed by the Roman Catholic Church. The most famous of Islamic leaders are meeting with the Pope and calling out for peace and unification.

The Hindu gods are the gods of Babylon, Egypt, Greece and Rome, given Indian names…

The Orthodox, Talmudic and Kabbalistic Jews follow traditions brought from Babylon… They share the same mystic beliefs as Jesuits and Masons… Some of the names change, but the doctrines are almost identical.

President Trump was, as he wrote in his own book, trained in the Kabballah by the most famous Jewish Kabballah teacher in America. His father was so committed to Jewish causes that many of his contemporaries thought him to be Jewish. Just today, I read a source who claims that Trump has quietly converted to Judaism, under pressure from his daughter and son-in-law. That would place him in the same Babylonian tradition and qualify him as Israel’s Messiah. (AntiMessiah) If, as I read, he truly believes that Jared Kushner is Israel’s Messiah, it would certainly encourage him to do whatever it takes to subdue the enemies of Israel.

Prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes… I stand amazed at how many Christians have chosen Babylon over the Kingdom of God…

Killing the Republic

With each swing, the Pendulum goes further into the extreme… People terrified by one, grab the next as their only hope…

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was a German philosopher and an important figure of German idealism.  He is credited with an idea now known as the Hegelian Dialectic.

What he proposed, in the simplest of terms, is that society is always presented with opposing and extreme ideas. The people supporting these ideas fight it out, but what wins is an idea that is merged from both and is better than either. Hegel believed that this process would continue until a day, somewhere in the future, where the very best possible construct of society would emerge and all wars would cease…

Just an idea (and probably wrong) but it got the attention of the wealthy elite. That idea was based on some pretty astute observations… This, they realized, could be weaponized…

The weaponized version goes like this… If you want to end up with a right wing, Jewish, New World Order, a moral, ordered kingdom, a place where the Noahide Laws are strictly enforced around the world, you must start a Pendulum swinging; a Pendulum that, on its final swing, will get you where you want to be…

You offer Stalin as the answer to Hitler, Reagan as the answer to Carter, you bring in Bush to further the concept… Clinton is the answer to Reagan and Bush, Bush is the answer to Clinton, Obama is the answer to Bush and Trump is the answer to Obama…

With each swing, the Pendulum goes further into the extreme… People terrified by one, grab the next as their only hope…

Now, we have Trump… but if the people are to follow him where the Elite want them to go, they must be frightened… Good people are not going to allow Trump to disolve the Republic and instal a dictatorship and Martial Law…

Unless of course, you can present the violent, hyper-extreme left as the only alternative… Unless you can convince them that allowing the Left to continue to exist will leave them lined up at a Guillotine for their faith and that Pedophiles will rule and rape their children… If you can cause them to believe that they will be faced with a bankrupt nation that robs them to feed illegal aliens and gives free medical care to invaders while denying them any care at all… If you show them Venezuela and tell them that that is where the Left wants to take us… If you have the News Media lie and continue to point out the lies of the “Left wing Media…”

If, through all these things, you can terrify them… and then, their hero (and only alternative,) says, “We can take down the Left. We can hang Obama and Clinton… we can put away all those people on Epstein’s list for life, we can protect your faith, we can close the border and deport Muslims. We can make Sharia Law illegal… BUT, I have to suspend the Constitution for a short time to do it… We will have to put off elections for a couple of years and I am going to have to authorize the military to operate within our borders for a little while, the military will have to be given police powers…

The people will… By God, they are willing now to let him do it… Save us! Whatever it takes! Please

This is the plan… The Republic will die, and the New World Order will be birthed, right here on these shores…

And Christians will bow down and worship their great leader…

Undoing Babel

It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. (Revelation 13:7)

“Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them…” —Jehovah God

Delusion, Deception, and the Love of the Truth.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

These notes are from a Radio Sermon I preached today. The YouTube video is here: https://youtu.be/mFT3DrDmbLU

The audio file (High Quality) is available here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/06nnimjknmso96u/Delusion%20Deception%20Truth.mp3?dl=0

Point One

         Deception

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12

8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

1 Timothy 4:1

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,

Jeremiah 14:14

14 Then the Lord said to me, “The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds.”

Point Two

         Love of the Truth

2 Thessalonians 2:10b

“… they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.”

John 8:32

“…you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:13, 14

“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

19 “But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot Israel from my land, which I have given them, and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 21 This temple will become a heap of rubble. All who pass by will be appalled and say, ‘Why has the Lord done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22 People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them—that is why he brought all this disaster on them.’”

Revelation 13:7

It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.

Matthew 24:9-13

9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12 Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

Point Three

Repentance, Holiness and Righteousness

Hebrews 12:14

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

WITHOUT HOLINESS NO ONE WILL SEE THE LORD.
